Forum Post: Dennis Kucinich Hired by Fox

Perhaps there will be some sanity aired on the Fox network now. Or he could just be used as a ploy to bash his own party because he's such an honest guy and doesn't change his views no matter who's in office. They use Ron Paul in a similar fashion...get him on a left leaning news station to bash his party.

Or Fox is in a last ditch effort to save itself from itself. I'm still not watching it. But, I don't watch anyone who is on any channel that "interprets" news or issues.

"I don't watch anyone who is on any channel that "interprets" news or issues"

I hear ya...and it seems that the "interpret" news list keeps growing, while the real news keeps shrinking.

Yes, yes it does.

i have to agree... but HIS will be a 'Lonely' sanity @ Fox Entertainment News..

... I keep expecting them to break out in a rendition .. ..of 'Lolly Pop Guild (Kids)' .. every time i see them report something.

( i have them on 'Block' in my home.. no one, not even a guest is allowed to turn that station on. I only see them on the Daily Show)

"The question is not "how do we get good people to rule?" -That's the wrong question. Most people attracted to power are at best mediocre and usually venal.

The question is - how do we make the power afraid of us? "

I don't doubt you are, I've been to your site.

The thing is most of the posters here need to be able to make money from rather small investments.

I have $7,000 IRA that made a whopping 16 cents.

I have a $600 bank account that does better percentage wise...

Everything is upside down and getting smaller.

I appreciate your efforts Marlow. I'm not mad at you.

There were many in the dead center to upper middle class that got nailed in the meltdown too, and not all of those weathered it any better than the lower middle class.

May you do well in all of your battles.

Where there is no public majority demand, there is no need for a government to listen.

Voter public control through the application of Free Democracy Affidavits http://occupywallst.org/forum/freeda-template/ or FreeDA can be the solution to bringing about political accountability under conditions in which ballot initiatives, referendums, and recalls, are not an option. For the People to be free, politicians must be legally bound to serving the specific interests of the People rather than the interests of the corporations. By refusing to vote for any candidate who doesn't sign an affidavit legally committing that candidate to supporting the Free Democracy Amendments, voters will be able to exercise their democratic power to hold the candidates who do sign and are elected, legally accountable. However, VOTERS MUST REMAIN UNITED ACROSS PARTY LINES IN THEIR AGREEMENT ON THE AFFIDAVITS AND IN THEIR REFUSAL TO VOTE FOR CANDIDATES WHO WON'T SIGN THE AFFIDAVITS. This non-partisan unity is essential to the success of bringing about permanent political reform, taking freedom into our own hands. The greatest support shall come from the participation of those who already don't vote for lack of political accountability. If, initially, no candidates are willing to sign in the election that the affidavits are first presented, it will only be a matter of time before willing candidates from each of the parties emerge from among the FreeDA supporters in subsequent elections. In accordance with amendments 6, 7, 8, and 9, of the Liberty Bill, the FreeDA signers would also be signing on to affirmations of not accepting campaign contributions from corporations and non-profits, not accepting gifts from special interests once in office, making all communication with lobbyists open to the press and the public, and not having an account with a private bank. In support of such candidates, a FreeDA 501(c)4 PAC would receive contributions to fund ads for all of the FreeDA signers collectively.

Exactly - fundamental change for the better will come from the involvement of the People. United in support of singular issues like Move To Amend ( now available on radio ) and in diversified numerous actions.

The thing is for the public/population to get involved - stand-up speak-out.

DK, i have had nearly 30 peeps at one time researching for my Site, and not one of them with all the Experience I, and my staff share, holds a candle to your energy, and your ability to Open Eyes and offer information.

they have to be afraid of us to listen to us. And of course I mean civil disobedience, not violence. Hedges explains in this awesome speech at OWS in 2011. I'm going to post about it later on the forum.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 1 year ago

I have to say that hoping to instill fear into your political adversary should not be what you are striving for, but rather you should be garnering their respect. But not in a kiss up sense, but by staying in it for the long haul and being consistent. I mean, it worked for Dennis K.

[-] 3 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

You ever hear the story of Ken Hechler and Nixon?

Hechler was a fighter for the miners. He was fighting for a black lung bill that would provide benefits. Nixon didn't want to sign it. Hechler held a press conference and said something along the lines of "if Nixon doesn't sign this bill tonight, every mine in this country will shut down."

You better bet Nixon signed that bill. That is the type of fear I'm talking about in that comment.

Later on Hechler came out and said, "I had no idea if they were gonna shut down or not."

We have to let them know we will not be tossed aside. When they fear us, they will have to treat us with respect.

A leader proclaimed the power of the people behind him - GOOD!
just like Ghandi ( & salt )
Which OWS leader will help us do that?

the people are the leaders in OWS

we don't have one. We are many.

Ron Paul has been on MSNBC quite a bit...maddow, shultz etc.

Would i vote for DK to be the leader of OWS..... Yeah, i think that would be a fairly logical fit....although i'm not sure OWS wants a leader... I've always liked Kucinich....just an honest guy.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

OMG- you broke the rules - you are not allowed to advocate for a leader
the leaders told me so
Yes - I have seen Ron Paul on Maddow - but is he an employee?
DK is smarter than anyone at faux noose - I hope he tramples them

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

No, Paul is not an employee....but the left likes to get him on because he'll bash his own party if they're being hypocritical or doing things that he thinks are unconstitutional. I can see Fox wanting Kucinich on board because Kucinich is honest and will do the same thing....so Fox can sideline him until stories come about where he'd likely disagree with his party (Libya, Drones, etc etc).

I too agree Kucinich can run circles around most of the clowns at fox.

"you are not allowed to advocate for a leader "

I thought you meant if we were electing someone would i vote for kucinich...hence my disclaimer "i'm not sure OWS wants a leader"...i'm not advocating for a leader.

[-] 2 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

"I thought you meant if we were electing someone would i vote for kucinich...hence my disclaimer "i'm not sure OWS wants a leader"...i'm not advocating for a leader."
I advocate for success - OWS has had some big ones, but not enough
Ghandi, MLK, Lincoln, Mandella = LEADERS

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

There have been some fantastic leaders in history...the problem is when one is elected - more come after him....and on a long enough timeline you eventually get one that takes advantage of the power.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

I agree - but has there ever been a substantially successful movement for anything that did not have a leader ?


I have worked hundreds of hours in NYC OWS and, from personal experience doing so, I can testify that lack of structure & leaders has cost OWS dearly


look at what leaders like cheney & koch & rush have done for the "other side"
...........................................................................................AND WE LET THEM DO IT

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28495) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Really? I do not see that =

has cost OWS dearly

It is new - and it is not about controlling the process for OWS - but to get the People to step-up and control the process.

[-] 2 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

The number of people actively working in NYC OWS has shrunk by 50% - 80%
THAT is a dear loss
Almost any evening, the 60 Wall Street meeting area used to (10 months a go) have 100-200 people working in a dozen groups.
Today we are lucky to have 20 people in three groups

[-] -1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

"other side"

not sure i'd agree with the other side argument.....i don't consider myself on a side.

As far as structure of an organization.....I believe if you want to get things accomplished structure is essential to a group or body of people. Structure doesn't have to be a leader though.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

Again- my 15 month in NYC OWS indicates otherwise. The facts are that in each meeting, we do select a leader for that meeting. Having an OWS leader elected - with an easy removal method like a vote of confidence would be constructive.
I don't want to get into this in detail - mostly because I don't know this area.
but I tend to look at history & what works & what does not. A 5 or 7 member leader ship council - elected for a year with each person recallable

Dennis....Called the murdering Assad of Syria, a "Compassionate leader", as he visited his pal twice. During the same trip, he REFUSED to even visit the American troops, serving in the Middle East. Hundreds of them from his own district, because he said he didn't condone the war.

Mass murdering muslim dictators? Dennis says "YES". His own troops who have died defending freedom? "Go fuck yourself"

[-] 0 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

"Mass murdering muslim dictators?"

Like the one the US has propped up for years (saudi arabia)? Or the other one we propped up for years and then overthrew (libya)? Or what about our support for Bahrain - the country killing protesters who we're currently selling arms to.

"Called the murdering Assad of Syria, a "Compassionate leader""

What was this in reference to? Lets explain the situation instead of clouding the issue and using half a quote.

"Kucinich was criticized for his visit to Syria and praise of the President Bashar al-Assad on Syria's national TV. He praised Syria for taking in Iraqi refugees. "What most people are not aware of is that Syria has taken in more than 1.5 million Iraqi refugees," Kucinich said. "The Syrian government has actually shown a lot of compassion in keeping its doors open, and being a host for so many refugees.""

Saving 1.5 million Iraq's seems fairly compassionate to me....it doesn't to you?
