This channel is an honest analysis of the news with a progressive view point without allegiance to anything other than the truth. At least in as far as I can determine based on the evidence present. I won't always be right, but I will always be honest about it.You can support my work by liking, sharing, and commenting on my videos, in addition to joining my Patreon account.I want to thank everyone for their support. It's immensely appreciated, completely humbling, and to some degree totally unanticipated. I just wanted to change the narrative of the prevailing paradigm. This channel allows me to do such. Thank you for the opportunity.

  1. Ever since Bill Clinton we’ve had “compassionate” intervention that has bamboozled the left into agreeing – to the regret of Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria, etc.

  2. Sadly I was watching Amy Goodman interviewing – the Lincoln Project Republicans. The same men that started all the Bush war's. Never asked him about war. only about Trump. Unbelievable

  3. My local dispensary have delicious Root Beer. I don’t care for the rye Ginger Ale though. I try not to drink too much soda and I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, but tea is my stimulus of choice. This is what you mean right?

  4. It's exactly the mentality that gripped America with the Iraq war—you're either with us or you're with the terrorists. Now, you either support Ukraine or you're a Putin puppet.

    "Tyranny is the deliberate removal of nuance." Albert Maysles

  5. I am an anti-war Lefty. I am not a pacifist. While I can wish this war never started, Putin had fairly good justification for starting it, and I have no problem rooting for Russia.

  6. I've been watching for 5-6yrs, I don't like to hear the " D" word but stuff happens. Jamarl hopefully you can find some happiness. I do agree on this " interaction ", Ukraine got used as a puppet by NATO, same as during Crimea. No one else put soldiers on the ground. I think Biden is assuming the Marvel Avengers are arriving too, dead soldiers can't fire weapons. Sinking 1 boat, 1 helicopter of a fleet. Means nothing & thousands evacuated, escaped and alot of elderly stayed behind but buildings / bridges destroyed, doesn't help & Ukraine has casualties too.

  7. In truth my friend sorry to hear about your personal breakup. You and your wife were cute if I can say that, but the Universe has a plan that supersedes our thoughts and beliefs and you will have a Beautiful future.

    I say the above as a Buddhist practitioner and Dharma Teacher who knows that if you keep putting good into the world, it must eventually return. Why?

    Because causes plus conditions equal outcomes…


  8. Let's get real, If the US did to Cuba what Russia did to Ukraine we both would be upset. Putin is known to kill his political rivals, that is known fact. For you to rightly state that Obama, Biden, Trump, et al, are all sociopaths and not include Putin in that number just demonstrates that you lack either moral clarity or honesty.

  9. The "Democratic-leaning Left" is a myth, and always has been. The political spectrum in the US has only comprised two right-wing parties in its history, with the Liberal party being labeled the "Left" party because US citizens are too stupid to realize that the political spectrum includes Socialism and Communism, the actual Left. Bernie Sanders is a New Deal/ Cold War Liberal by the ideology he has always supported, and Michael Parenti, a Marxist Leninist (an actual anti-capitalist, anti-imperialism Leftist) and former friend of Bernie, ended his relationship with Bernie over the NATO intervention in Yugoslavia in 1999. Bernie has dishonestly labeled himself a Socialist, as has AOC. The only legitimately Left politician in office in the US is Kshama Sawant in Seattle. YouTube is littered with New Deal Liberals, which is a reactionary political view, like Dore, Kulinski, Ball, Hinkle, Figuredo, Doel, Vaush, TYT, et al., who call themselves Socialists by dint of thinking the DSA is a Socialist organization, which it is not. DSA seeks to make subtle tweaks to Capitalism, while the Left starts at Socialism, and Socialism starts after the end of Capitalism, by definition. Socialists and Communists want to end Capitalism, not improve it marginally. FDR, a Liberal, is smeared as a Leftist when, in his own words, his greatest accomplishment was "saving Capitalism" which would be an odd boast for someone whose Leftist ideology is anti-Capitalism, if he truly were a Leftist. Liberals are by definition, right-wing. Period. Liberals are not Leftists, Leftists are not Liberals. Today, they are the lesser far-right, which should make the decisions they make and the policies and alliances they pursue easier to understand if you're laboring under the false assumption that Liberals have ever been a friend of the working class. They literally allied with Conservatives post-WWII to destroy individual Leftists like Paul Robeson, along with the robust Socialist and Communist parties that forced the Liberal Roosevelt administration to enact New Deal policies to curtail the very real threat of Communism in the 30s. What you are referring to is the "pseudo-left", only. There has been a concerted effort by the national security state going back over a hundred years to stop Communism or any form of Left ideology that threatened Capitalism, and Liberals have been complicit every step of the way. Read about the Congress for Cultural Freedom, and avail yourself of Prof. Gabriel Rockhill's writing on fascism and the co-optation, fragmentation, and destruction of Left movements in the US by the FBI, available at his YT channel, Critical Theory Workshop. Harriet Fraad, a leader of the second wave of feminism and wife to the Marxist economist Richard Wolfe, recently produced a video on her Capitalism Hits Home YT channel detailing how the feminist and Civil Rights movements were fragmented by the FBI by pitting men against women, Blacks against whites, a dynamic we still see today. The US is and has always been allied with fascists to fight Communists, virulently anti-Russia even now that they're a Capitalist country, and anyone who supports the Liberal party today is essentially a less overtly racist version of a Republican. If you wonder why this country is sliding deeper and deeper into fascism daily, it's because we have two right-wing parties dragging us into it, one wittingly and enthusiastically, one ignorantly and in the guise of "the lesser evil", what I call "Chomsky's folly". I live in Oregon, and the dispensary I go to is full of Liberals in a white supremacist state, yet I don't talk to them because my Socialist ideology is foreign to their right-wing beliefs. Time to recalibrate, my friend.

  10. If a Global power who the US had issues with had Couped Mexico or Canada, installed there Puppet and started building up there Military strength and moving Troops and equipment to its border no one with even a shred of integrity or critical thinking skills would thing for one second the US would not have invaded or Bombed the Country to Glass.
    So for me Putin was slower to act and has acted less brutally that the US would have acted in said situation so for me its the Wests Lies and Hypocrisy i find more offensive than anything Putin has done, He was clearly provoked into the action by the biggest hypocrites on this Earth.

  11. man i get nervous when i agree with someone fully…i start wondering if im a sheep just following someone because im to dumb to think of these things for myself lol…i cant find any flaw in your arguments or conclusions…especially about russia being dont have to agree with the "special millitary operation" but people need to understand that this was provoked..the west wanted this proxy war…this is all in the name of western geo political dominance… all this info is out there for people to find but the sheer ignorance i see is astounding..keep up the good work man…… a huge startrek NERD also…

  12. If you are getting it wrong on Ukraine u probably live a very simple life and live in your own bubble. Sadly over 80% of humans act more like ants then sentient beings.
    Much love.

  13. Hey Jamarl, have followed you a long time, and used to enjoy the livestreams you did with your soon to be ex wife, along with all your other content. Hope everything works out for you and her.

  14. There are other layers to a full analysis. One is the capitalist system and the need for capital to reproduce itself and's systemic.

  15. Also I think you are overthinking it, lol. We love the ladies, but they are sometimes like cats, one moment she really likes you the other she doesn't. It doesn't have to be about anything you did, just keep trucking on. Additionally, if she was a Dem obsessed with Ukraine virtue signaling, you probably would have been condescendingly informed by now how much of a bad person you are and a Putin puppet.
