This is addressed to EVERY PERSON who is pissed off at mainstream media personality like Rachel Maddow, Joy-Ann Reid, Jake Tapper, Don Lemon et al. For more than five years, these yellow “journalists” insisted on insulting our intelligence by pushing a fraudulent media narrative of Russians interfering in our elections when those of us who are not inhaling the crack-cocaine that is politics know that our democracy was highjacked by corporations and banking cabals a long time ago.
This is for every former Obama supporter, like me and countless tens of thousands others, who still feel a tinge of fury at the way the First Bank President played us for suckers only to enhance Bush’s policies, enrich the plutocracy, victimize mortgage owners and bludgeon the poor, working and middle-class.
When Obama gave bankers the principal reduction decision-making power in his HAMP, he had the banks welfare in mind – and millions lost their homes: https://t.co/dHggdA6ThK

This is for every Bernie Sanders adherent who got jobbed twice in four years only to get a bigger betrayal by Bernie himself as he chose expedience over principles. Bernie proved yet again that there are zero heroes in politics—only cowards and chiselers who use our pains as stepping stones.
This is for every independent journalist who kept the spirit of muckrakers alive by refusing to go along with the McCarthyistic witch hunt the Democrats normalized to explain away their failed leadership and their malicious hypocrisy. We endured rounds of ridicule and censorship but we held firm in the truth instead of flip flopping like John Kerry for sake of establishment acceptance and their ill gotten corporate money.
This for every American who is treated like a second-class citizen in his/her country while the wealthiest 1% are treated like Sultans in Qatar. We, the marginalized super majority, have been rendered powerless by a government that is bought and paid for by multinational corporations and globalist bilkers who are intent on destroying our planet if that means they can make the next marginal dollar.
And finally, this is for humanity, the billions of people globally who have been turned into indentured servants of a capitalist system that sees us as cogs in a machine to use as needed and toss aside after we are no longer required. This is for centuries of injustices committed in every corner of the world and the crucibles that the plurality of humanity is enduring as we are forced to negotiate between hardship and hopelessness in order to survive another day and provide for our loved ones.
I wrote that preamble of sorts as a way to galvanize everyone, irrespective of identity or ideology, to get behind a campaign which has the potential of giving rocket fuel to an article I wrote last night that has been going viral for most of the day after being reposted by Naked Capitalism and two other websites. The article I’m referring to is a satire piece where I use the occasion of Joe Biden falling up the stairs to mock Rachel Maddow and the entire “Russia interference” bullshit narrative neoliberal toadies in newstertainment have been propagandizing us since their favorite warmonger lost in 2016.
This is a chance to use social media to our benefit by sharing the hell out of the satire article in order to firmly and fully push back against the lies and hypocrisy of mainstream media. Instead of echoing the likes of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Washington Post et al and sharing their corporate talking points that are passed off as news, I am asking you to join in a collective effort to make the satire article about Joe Biden go uber-viral. I have a theory that a hundred unverified accounts with a few hundred or thousand followers have a greater impact than one blue checked celebrity with a million followers—I hope to be proven right with this article. #BidenThreeStep Click To Tweet
For the record, Ghion Journal does not accept ad revenue nor do we get paid for clicks. We have no hidden agendas nor do we have profit motives—we just want to stick it to the establishment. So I am asking you, fellow sojourners on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and any other social media site you might be on, read the satire article about Joe Biden, get a good laugh and then share it (without hinting that it is a satire) by using #BidenThreeStep.
A big shout out to the #GhionGang @Sky_Daddy, @Tucsoniris and @Devinedianakin, a dedicated group of supporters who believe in independent journalism who always step up to retweet, share and post Ghion Journal articles. If you are interested in being part of the #GhionGang, follow me and direct message me @Teodrose_Fikre; after a little vetting to make sure you are sincere in your outreach, you will get an invite to our private Telegram group. Thank you and continue to support independent media, we are making a difference!
