    And getting his ass kissed by journos and "centrist" Dems, no matter how horrid his policies.
  4. is calling Vladimir Putin "an evil man." He's just mad that Putin will outlive him.
  5. dropped bombs on Vietnam. That means he was killing people. He got caught and got his ass whipped. He made a political career out of killing people and getting his ass whipped.

    First they get a black police commissioner, Richard Ross, to justify the arrest of two black men at Starbucks. Now they get a black mayor, AJ Connors, to justify the chokehold of a black teenager at Waffle House. Same predictable playbook. Same injustice.

    Surprising that it's even a news story. Skirting US airspace & measuring time to intercept has been happening for decades. It's another faux-news story with the sole purpose of inciting fear in the masses.
  8. Russian planes near Alaska!!! But as Sarah Palin told us, Russia borders Alaska. So no story here. None.
  9. Taking kids from parents happens to black Americans all the time. Black kids are also shot dead by the police. Tamir Rice for example. If is concerned about state terror inflicted upon families she doesn't have to go to Russia.

    This should not be allowed to be swept under the rug. If we can't speak freely without being beaten up, jailed, abused by our so-called 'civilian police' then stop calling this a Free Country. Has anyone on the Corp Media interviewed Ray McGovern?? I don't watch it so wondering
  13. was released from jail. He was assaulted and arrested by Capitol Hill police after questioning CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel at her confirmation hearing.

    Britain's racist immigration laws can't be seen in isolation. The crimes against black people go back centuries. Here's my take in

    More of this needs to happen across the United States, the belly of the largest empire in human history.

    For the 4th week in a row, Phily activists protest the Philly Orchestra’s upcoming trip to Israel, which includes a "VIP visit to an IDF military base" - the same IDF that killed 42 and injured over 5,000 Palestinians in the last month.

    Kaepernick will be remembered as one of the greatest humanitarians in this nation and White people will pretend they always loved him like they do Ali.
