Govern America | February 19, 2022 | And Nothing Happened

Putin's reflection appears in Biden's glasses. 


Hosts: Darren Weeks, Vicky Davis

Vicky's Websites:,

Justin Trudeau invokes Emergency Powers Act, leading to massive abuse of power and violation of individual liberties in Canada. Bank accounts and property is being seized, people are being beaten up in the streets by cops, and trampled by horses — all for attending a peaceful protest against mandates. Vladimir Putin misses a key deadline involving Ukraine, as Biden administration is increasingly desperate for a foreign policy win. Court filing in Durham probe indicates Hillary Clinton campaign spied on Trump, but how deep does the rabbit hole go? The deconstruction of the nation-state into smaller regions and the shifting of foreign policy to large cities. Deep dive into Western States Center and the tax-exempt foundations that fund them. Breakout of Bird Flu leads to the culling of tens of thousands of birds, and much more.

One America in the 21st Century: Forging a New Future - The Preident's Initiative on Race (Clinton Recipe for Revolution)

Western States Center – info from the Internet Archive
Western States Center's mission is to build a progressive movement for social, economic, racial and environmental justice in the eight Western states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Alaska. 
Our vision is of a just and equitable society governed by a strong, grassroots democracy.  We work on three levels: strengthening grassroots organizing and community-based leadership; building long term, strategic alliances among community, environmental, labor, social justice and other public interest organizations; and developing the capacity of informed communities to participate in the public policy process and in elections.

New Localism

A city led world needs to speed the process by which innovative solutions invented in one city are rapidly adapted and adopted by other cities. It is essential to capture and codify:

In the 21st century, under Vartan Gregorian, Carnegie Corporation is facing the challenge of how to support the development of a global community in an age when both isolationism and nationalism seem to be fostering a fractured view of the world. And in a time when we are overwhelmed by information, how do we use it to build a sense of community instead of allowing it to tear us apart? **** *** ***

Ford Foundation

In environment and development we help people and groups acquire, protect and improve land, water, forests, wildlife and other natural assets in ways that help reduce poverty and injustice.

In community development we seek to improve the quality of life and opportunities for positive change in urban and rural communities. Our goal is to develop community-based institutions that mobilize and leverage philanthropic capital, investment capital, knowledge and skills, and natural resources in a responsible and fair manner.

At the outset of the 1990s, Moscow had high hopes that the United States and Russia would cooperate as the two chief pillars of a “new world order,” and that, in Europe, the Commission for Security and Cooperation in Europe (now the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the OSCE) would emerge as the most influential institution in a new European security architecture. Nearly ten years later, Russians feel betrayed by a NATO that has expanded into former Warsaw Pact countries and is considering further expansion, including into territory formerly part of the Soviet Union. The majority of the Russian foreign policy community believes that NATO’s expansion of mission, as exemplified by its intervention in Kosovo, and its increasing military cooperation with former Soviet republics through the Partnership for Peace program contravene Russian national interests. Rather than being more integrated into a new European security architecture, Russian foreign and security policy elites see Russia as more isolated from Europe than during the Cold War. Although the United States and Russia broadly share common interests in promoting peace and stability in Europe, during the 1990s Moscow and Washington experienced their most pointed differences over issues of European security.

Another need, however discomfiting, is for an honest recognition that when it comes to human rights abuses and minority rights, U.S. and European support for Turkey has greatly reduced the West’s real moral standing and that of institutions like the Council of Europe. As far as most Russians are concerned, Western moral prestige is in any case virtually zero. Turkey may not have caused as many casualties among the Kurds as the Russians have in Chechnya, but its denial of the Kurds’ ethnic, cultural, and linguistic rights has been far greater and more systematic. (Moscow has, after all, always and repeatedly offered successive Chechen leaderships the fullest autonomy—“Tatarstan Plus”—within the Russian Federation.) Turkey’s policies have of course been criticized by the United States, but they have drawn no sanctions from either the United States or from NATO, which continues to view Turkey as a highly respected member. U.S. criticism of Russia needs to be shaped with these facts firmly in mind.
P.44 – Aid P.47 – education

The Putin government adopted an ambitious reform program in July 2000, putting virtually all remaining important structural reforms—including reforms to regulate the natural monopolies of electricity, railways, and natural gas—on the agenda. The Duma has already enacted a far-reaching tax reform package, which has long been seen as necessary for steady economic growth, though tax administration requires further improvements. The most important reform issues still to be faced are strengthening governance and rule of law. The poor functioning of the state, including the judiciary, must be improved. The Russian government has also put a number of important social reforms on its list, including pension reform, reform of the health care and education systems, and targeting social support to those most in need. The U.S. government should positively respond to Russian requests for assistance in these domains.

P.56 – Law

P.57 – Higher Education

A strong system of higher education coupled with robust support for research in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities is a prerequisite for successful political and economic transitions in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Union. In the Soviet period, higher education was a major state priority, and many Soviet scientists and mathematicians ranked among the world’s best. The situation in the social sciences, however, was far less exemplary due to repression and the distortions of Marxist-Leninist ideology. Glasnost and perestroika gave Russian intellectuals greater freedom to pursue their research, but the economic collapse left the research and scientific communities in the region scrambling to survive and lacking adequate resources.

Many Russian researchers have emigrated to the West and taken positions in leading universities and research institutions. Many more have remained in Russia but left their fields of research for new careers. If Russia is to consolidate its political and economic transition, the current internal and external brain drain must be greatly reduced.

P.59 – Invisible Universities

Not only should the United States and the West take the lead in supporting regional institutions, but they should think creatively about how new technologies and other modalities can support regional research networks and what some have called “invisible universities.” The basis for Internet conductivity established with support from George Soros in more than 30 regional Russian universities should be supported and expanded to other universities in Russia and the region. An informative needs assessment for the humanities and social sciences supported by the Carnegie Corporation and the MacArthur Foundation recommended using academic and policy journals such as Polis and Pro et Contra as the basis for facilitating informal research networks on selected themes. Ten million dollars allocated annually for these and other cost-effective efforts could go a long way toward rebuilding and nourishing regional research communities working on issues of fundamental importance to regional development as well as world science.

As globalization is gathering momentum, the foundation for individuals and nations to successfully adapt and prosper is world-class education, not only in the natural sciences and engineering but also in the social sciences.
