RIGHT NOW (from 11:00AM Fri on) Bernie Sanders has begun his heroic Filibuster in the Senate on C-Span 2 --- "Against Empire"


Bernie is really kicking the sh*t out of the disguised ruling-elite's global corporate/financial/militarist EMPIRE, which hides behind the facade of its 'owned' TWO-Party 'Vichy' sham of democratic government here in the US --- in the belly of the beast, the global EMPIRE only posing as our government.

What Bernie is doing is EXACTLY the same exposure of EMPIRE's deceit and lies as what Julian Assange did with Wikileaks exposure of the VERY SAME EMPIRE in the lies and secrets of this Empire's foreign policy of wars and destruction "abroad" (to benefit the corporatist war Empire) but Bernie is exposing that same Empire "at home" where it is benefiting the Empire's financial looting sector instead of its weapons making sector of crooks.

What Bernie is doing is also the exact same revulsion and confrontation of this disguised global corporate/financial/militarist EMPIRE that the British college kids are in the streets fighting against right now --- because that same Empire that economically oppresses American middle-working-class "at home" in the US, has caused and is doing the very same beggaring of British students "abroad".

Please, please watch and tape Bernie's confrontation with EMPIRE and the great articulation and documentation that this brave filibuster is providing of many of the hidden horror stories and secret looting techniques that the Empire has used to destroy all but the ruling-elite in the US, Britain, Germany, Spain, Japan, etc. etc.

PS. the reason that I keep repeating the terms "abroad" and "at home" is to highlight the truth of Hannah Arendt's famous warning about Empire, which she experienced first hand with the Nazi Empire --- and which is true for all Empires, including this 21st century Empire hiding behind America:

"Empire abroad, entails tyranny (and economic oppression) at home".

Watch it. Think about the truth that Bernie, Assange, and those British (French, Spanish, Greek, and other) kids in the street s of the world are brave enough to confront.

PS2. it will be very very interesting to see how the friggin cover-up news anchors in the corporatist media on tonight's TV 'Vichy' News, which is just helping disguise this corporatist thieving EMPIRE, will handle their need to report, like Brian 'lying' Williams on General Electric's propaganda network, NBC, that a filibuster is going on in the Senate, but how they will avoid 'like the plague' what Bernie is actually saying to the American people.

Prehaps Brian will slyly say, "Well, tonight we have one lone Democrat --- really the only Senator to call himself a Socialist --- holding up Obama's tax program for all Americans. We would bring you a sample of this traitor's foot dragging against your tax benefits, but his filibuster is simply too awful to show you any of what he's really saying. So trust me, folks, don't watch this awful performance and don't believe anyone who tells you that it makes sense --- they're probably all Commies anyway".

And of course the profession media lying-head anchors on the other networks; Disney Corporation's ABC news anchor, Diane Sawyer, and Viacom Corporation's new anchor, Katie Couric, can follow suit on Brian's lie of omission and not show a single clip of Bernie confronting the EMPIRE which the ruling-elite corporate/financial/militarist EMPIRE needs desperately to HIDE from the American people!
