    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?


    It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?


    Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH


    Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?

    Carson's Corner with The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this March 22nd, 2015, edition of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates will begin the show by discussing the argument for early voting. Recently President Obama made the argument that mandatory voting is "potentially transformative." President Obama and his rulers want to further solidify their control over us by enshrining the meaningless act of voting. As we have discussed, voting only validates plutocratic control; and the best way to delegitimize our rulers is to not participate in their game. We'll discuss this, plus play some clips and discuss the rest of the news you won't hear in the corporate media.

  • Can A Boycott Of Christmas Gift Buying Bring Racial Justice?

    in Women

    The 20th anniversary of the Million Man March is being promoted with the words "Justice or Else!"  What's the or else? In recent speech, Minister Louis Farrakhan called for African Americans to boycott Christmas as a response to racial injustice. How can we force justice by the withdrawal of our 1.9 trillion dollars from the U.S. economy during the season most businesses depend upon for their yearly profits? Who are we hoping to hurt with our boycott? How will their financial distress lead to a change of discriminatory laws? The procecution of police who killed citizens? The passing of sensible gun laws? The release of falsely accused prisoners? Do we need to work out a specific strategy to make sure our lack of buying gifts for friends and family produces the desired effects? Will enough people participate? Do we need to tie this boycott to a specific piece of legislation? Give us your views on the meaning of "justice or else!" What threat can we collectively carry out that can force a change and bring justice

    The Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner.

    in Politics Progressive

    April 26th, 2015, the Election Boycott Advocates return to Carson's Corner. With the TPP passing out of committe, the ruling class are one step closer to further eroding the wages of working Americans, which are considered high in the capitalist view of the world market. We'll give you the latest developments on the resistance to this corporate, backroom deal.


    Plus, we'll give you the latest on the worldwide class struggle taking place in Venezuela, Ukraine and any other country that continues to fight U.S. imperalism. It is these struggles that may shape the class struggle here in the U.S.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this edition of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we revisit the purpose of the Election Boycott Advocates. Some are suggesting that even the election of Syriza cannot save Greece and there can be no electoral exit from the crisis (http://crimethinc.com/texts/r/syriza/).  We at the Election Boycott Advocates believe that there can be no electoral exit from our current and ongoing crises, capitalism. Participation in our plutocratic election system is absolutely meaningless, as the capitalist class use our consent to make us weaker and weaker, as they get stronger and stronger.  It is critical that working class Americans realize that they have no stake in our election system and join us in spreading non-compliance.  The first step in any revolution is the elevation of consciousness, then non-compliance. This 2 hour program will be dedicated to expressing the need for the Election Boycott Advocates.

    Carson's Corner with The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates speak truth to power by tell you the truth about what is going on in the world. In the end the results are the same: the world's working class continue slip further and further into the abyss, while the ruling class continue to get richer and richer. This exploitation will continue to take place as long as we the working class continue to, in one form or another, support elections. Whether it is the latest scandal concerning whichever billionaire owned politician the ruling class want to talk about, or the latest farce of an election, the working class have no stake in the system, unless it dismantle it and takeover. Join us this Sunday as we continue our revolutionary discussion.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    Fresh off a huge show about the fight against Capitalism, Carson's Corner is back with the Election Boycott Advocates. This week, we will discuss the potential Fast Track of the Trans Pacific Partnership, another corporate "free trade" agreement designed to erode our economic sovereignty and bring the working class further down into the abyss. Since the last round of devastating trade agreements, Americans have lost an estimated 60,000 factories- Mexico has lost at least 1 million jobs (although the number is undoubtedly higher). The TPP and TPIP will override what's left of our courts, regulatory agencies, and ultimately give more control to the transnational corporations and the capitalist class. Is there growing opposition to these deals, or are they signed, sealed, and nearly delivered Do Americans have any say in this matter? Is this part of what Fred Goldstein would call, Low Wage Capitalism, further increasing the wage competition between American workers and the rest of the world, so that the ruling class can increase their profits?


    We'll also talk about other important issues that face the working class, and take your calls in the process.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    The Election Boycott Advocates are broadcasting live on Super Bowl Sunday. While over a hundred million Americans tune into the big game only to be bombarded with capitalist-driven messages designed to maintain compliance, the Election Boycott Advocates will focus on the important issues facing the working class. Last week in Greece, the anti-capitalist party Syriza won close to a total majority. The people of Greece are fed up with the austerity-driven policies applied by the capitalists and their accumulated debt, which has absolutely crippled the working class. What does this mean for Greece, the Euro, and other countries? Could this be the beginning of a hardline leftist movement that seeks to overthrow the parasitic banks and capitalists all around the world? Some have suggested in the American corporate media that the American version of Syriza has already been started by the likes of Senators Bernie Sanders, Sherrod Brown, and Elizabeth Warren. Is this the case? Tune in to the Election Boycott Advocates on Carson’s Corner for this live call-in discussion.

    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    Join the Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner as they discuss the issues that few podcasts will cover, especially in the corporate media. Patrice Greenville, founder of the Greanville Post, recently wrote an article for the Greanville Post titled, "Hatchet Job on Putin only demonstrates the Conformist Spirit Permeating US Journalism." The article is critical of Frontline's treatment of Vladmir Putin. Why is it that the American media is so agaisnt Putin? Isn't the American media supposed to give you two sides to a conflict? The American media treatment of the conflict in the Ukraine is only the latest example of how the media respresents elite interests. In the lead up to every military conflict that involves the United States, the corporate media merely extends the will of the ruling class and acts as a cheerleader as the U.S. ruling class conquers another country. As we have seen in the Ukraine, the ruling class  will use neo nazi fascists to protect U.S. and international capital.


    Also, it seems that capitalism has in store more "free trade" deals that will futher immobilize the American worker and  create a controllable pool of cheap labor. The American worker will continue to be forced to compete with sweatshop workers in  a race to the bottom as capitalism moves backwards to ensure its survival.
