Your Logic is lacking a bit.
At the time of X, The Democratic Party was more of a Racist Old Confederacy sympathizing Based party.X died in 65, just as the Voteing Rights Act was passed 1965.(((AFTER))) this, the "StatesRights" Dems became todays GOP.and the Norths repubs became todays Democrats.
Let me put it like this .......
If Dylan Roof would have  Voted in this election ,he would  have voted for trump. and if  he was alive during the 60s hed be calling for the head of X and King.
+ If king was alive he wouldnt be flying the Confederate flag again like a good number of trump supporters

i left out its not enuff to read we have to relate the past  w/whats happening in the present.
but Wow, u are on point .
 Trump is preying on the stupid/ppl who like to be entertained.That mfer went to Gettysburg and said ...."People may not know this but the republican party is the party of Lincoln".Now lincoln really wasnt perfect.But the false narrative trump is painting,"the poorly educated" will fall 4 it.Lincolns party didnt fly the Southern Flag,Trumps "StatesRights" base is.
i never heard of that book,im seeing some stuff by Greg Palast about Chris Kobach on trumps transition.Hes the creator of a Crosscheck Vote purge problem where they throw people off the ballot w/o the voter even knowing.And u r right this came after the gop lead supreme court tore apart the VRA.
+Did u hear the comment from trump where he actually((( Thanked Black people for Not Voteing)))?
Trumps people even set up fake black accounts after  facebook cracked down on fake sites.

Savant on Politics in 2016

Anti Trump Riots Spread.
Trump clearly is a racist and has SHOWN this by racist demonizing of racial minorities. And that'sot his only flaw. Also, it is a myth that people were commonly regarded as racist for disagreeing with Obama. It depended on whether opposition to Obama was based on racism. A lot of ANTI-RACIST people had sharp differences with Barack Obama. On the other hand, Trump is appointing racists to posts in is cabinet. And his racist campaign has energized racists all over America. There have been a rash of racist incidents against Latinos, Blacks and Muslims (who are often racialized even though Islam is a religion). Your analogy doesn't work. Or is at least isn't plausible to honest and rational people in touch with the real world.  (Thursday | post #418)

Anti Trump Riots Spread.
Only problem is that my statements are factually correct. White supremacists and Nazis are not galvanizing behind Trump for no reason. And his appointment of white supremacist inclined Bannon is no coincidence. The facts are as I stated them. Of course, you operate by a different "logic": "My mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts". Typical right wing obtuseness.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #364)

Anti Trump Riots Spread.
Obama was not a Fascist and racist hatemonger. Trump is, and has a long record of racist bigotry and misogynist disdain for women. Actually, Trump has dumb white people by the nose. He's playing your dumb a_______ and you're too retarded to know it. You voted for a billionaire fascist who will enslave you, though you are mentally at least half enslaved already And by the way, there are PROTESTS all over the country, not riots all over the country. If Trump tries to shove his white supremacist and fascist agenda down our throats there may very well be riots, or perhaps IRA style guerilla warfare.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #363)

Actually, it's people on the right who have lost their minds. The xenophobia, racism and misogyny spewed by Trump and his supporters is insanity. And all the white supremacist and alt-rights kooks are not exactly exemplars of sanity and reason.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #360)

What makes you think they're Clinton advocates? Some were for Bernie Sanders and even Jill Stein. I know for a fact that some protestors I saw here in Baltimore I met at Jill Stein events  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #359)

Anti Trump Riots Spread.
And the  fits of the Tea Party during the Obama administration? Did those right wingers have jobs? Oh, and some of them even showed up in demonstrations with guns. Regardless of what you believe, the anti-Trump protests were mainly peaceful even though things got out of hand in Oregon. Now is the time to oppose Trumpist fascism and racism, and that's what they're doing.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #358)

Is America now the new Fourth Reich?
If Il Duce Don Trump isn't a Fascist already, he's leading in that direction. As an AA man I do find this alarming, and must prepare for self-defense  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #36)

Anti Trump Riots Spread.
There are mass protests in the country, mostly peace, against fascist President-elect Il Duce Don Trump and what stands for. These are not "anti-Trump riots" as the title of this thread dishonestly says.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #353)

Trump does seem to be worse than GW. Bush seem to me to be simpleminded, not mean spirited. An incompetent conservative. Trump strikes me as being mean spirited and fascistic.  (Tuesday Nov 15 | post #63)

Are white liberals truly friends of black people?
Your comment suggest you've not studied the women's movement very well if this is your interpretation. The women's movement like every other liberation movement sprung up from within the aggrieved community.  (Monday Nov 14 | post #562)

It turns out that 90% of Blacks voted for Hillary, even if they had to hold their noses to oppose that fascist buffoon Il Duce Don Trump. (Hillary the pits, but most inferred that Trump's even worse). About two thirds of Latinos voted for Hillary. And Clinton actually won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college. Mainly voters had two bad choices, and they took again what they thought to be the lesser evil  (Monday Nov 14 | post #57)

A What Jan overlooks is that Malcolm X also regarded conservatives and right wingers as the enemy. He even pondered forming a Black guerilla unit to deal with the extreme right who were lynching us, and bombing our homes and churches. When asked whether ANY white man would be allowed in his Organization of Afro-American Unity, he suggested John Brown if any like him are around. But John Brown was a REVOLUTIONARY. Not a liberal or conservative. REVOLUTIONARY. If you want to tell a story be sure to tell it fully.  (Tuesday Nov 1 | post #266)

I am studying the BLM platform in preparation for a meeting in January.

 Most Black will vote for Clinton not because thinks she's so great, but because Il Duce Don is much worst. Clinton is a centrist opportunist, but Il Duce Don Trump is a scary Fascist buffoon and demogague

Recently, I discovered FROM BLACK LIVES MATTER TO BLACK LIBERATION by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. A very good read.

I must look for that thread on the original Black Panther Party. As brother Marshall Eddy Conway reminds me, this month--October 15 to be exact--is the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party. I'm working with a group of young people here in Baltimore who are rediscovering the legacy of the Panthers. (If you're ever in Baltimore, Red Emma's Café/Bookstore has many books on the Panthers and other left tendencies and ideas). One of the young brothers I'm trying to work with was involved in the April 2015 uprising. I won't mention names, of course. Yeah, it isn't easy to disguise who you are even with a new name once your style of thinking and writing becomes well known. That's why it didn't take me long to figure out you were not the real Frenchman. Your styles of thinking (though both "left") and writing are simply too different. That's also why I thought it so laughably ridiculous when some people surmised that I must be Attai. Have those persons NO capacity for discernment? LOL!


Humans are capable of being violent and also of being peaceful. By the way, I think I know who you posted this to. Michel (which is masculine, unlike MicheLLe) is not a female, nor is he French. I was wondering at first if he wasn't a French person from AA Forum whom I met once. But his posts, the shape of his logic marked by a social scientific education (Anthropology), is actually the inveterate enemy of a certain French person who occasionally posts here. Michel, is very American--of left persuasion. Are you really Polish as your avatar suggests? With regard to feminism, there are many different kinds of it. Insofar as feminism advocates for the end of patriarchy and the full emancipation of women, I find nothing objectionable about it. However, some forms of feminism has shown tendencies towards racism and elite class prejudice. Black feminists in the USA like bell hooks and Angela Y. Davis (in WOMEN: RACE AND CLASS) have themselves critiqued these tendencies.

Natural law theory has a much older lineage than the thought of Thomas Aquinas. Natural law theory has a much older lineage than the thought of Aquinas. And modern thinkers reworked natural law ideas into a different synthesis than what Aquinas offered. Trust me on this: Aquinas would not likely defend Locke, Voltaire or myself. He wouldn't read natural law in the same way as did the men of the Enlightenment.

"The fact that all three victims were African-American has been used to reinforce a racialized narrative of police violence as predominately one of white cops killing black men and boys out of ingrained white racism."

The way you continue to trot out the same specious analyses over and over again is, to use your own phrase, an insult to the intelligence. Do you deny that police violence is disproportionately directed at black men and boys? Do you deny incarceration rates are hugely skewed? Do you deny that racial profiling is practised?

Secondly, the phrase "ingrained white racism" is dishonest. It's perfectly possible to believe that the police are systematically racist without attributing it to some inherent white mentality.

"Whatever role racism may play in particular police killings, it is not the fundamental issue. Here, the circumstances behind the killing of Scott are revealing. The police shooter, Brentley Vinson, is African-American, as is the police chief, Kerr Putney. The mayor of Charlotte is a woman, Democrat Jennifer Roberts. The police officer in Tulsa, moreover, was a woman."

This is the same dishonest argument that you always make, and which I've called out innumerable times before. "Racism cannot be involved because the shooter was black". Can't you understand that the color of the shooter "reveals" nothing. And bringing up the gender of the police and mayor is a new low for you. What conceivable bearing does that have on anything?

Incidentally you should make sure you have your facts straight. I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure I saw an interview with two witnesses who said the shooter was actually a white male.

The only conclusion I can draw from the almost unbroken chain of articles like this is that wsws wishes to let bourgeois nationalism define the struggle against racism. For me this article is the last straw. It's gone past the point where anyone could hope for you bring your political line (about race and imperialism, not about everything) into agreement with reality.

Yeah, I know. These anti-Black reactionaries are too stupid to debate, and not worth spending your time on.



I listen to WEAA FM in Bmore. Plays everything from Hip Hop to Jazz or blues. But I heard a tune from South African singer Miriam Makeba that I liked so much I found it again on YouTube: "Pata Pata."



Well a negro male (for you are NOT a Black MAN) who'd even think of naming himself "PIMP" is clearly not a man of much quality himself, and hardly someone with a mind or character that would make him a good judge of black woman or anyone else. Malcolm X once said that the Black man will get respect from NO ONE until he learns to respect his own women. In fact, REAL Black men do not even respect such poor excuses for manhood.

Advice from Conscious People

angel9loveu on April 9, 2016 at 2:51 AM said:
They first diminish the targets humanity,likening them to animals hence calling us and the natives savages. A way to convince themselves and everyone else that the target is less than human hence justifying their destruction.
But they are the real savages.They have no remorse for mistreating us because they’ve already dehumanized us. Stripped us of our dignity, made the world to think we’re the one’s leeching on them and their “inventions” in their world. And we’re just a burden that everyone needs to see as lower than human. They are evil in every form.

And I know how you feel. I’ve gotten my peace of mind from separating from them also.I feel most at peace and able to keep my true self authentic when not mingling around those goofballs.Even if it’s in my little niche. Limited interaction, my bible and reading other common sense bloggers as well are my sanity.

Funny you mention Native Americans because a few months ago I was watching Murder She Wrote which I never watched before and in one episode was a Native American guy who came to town saying the town was building on government sanctioned native land set aside for his father.

It’s my first time seeing something like this. It was one single Native guy and he came into the city hall meeting. After that the whites (who numbered in the 100’s, heck it was the whole town versus the 1 lone native american guy) were claiming to be scared of him, saying native Americans were violent, claiming he was violent although he never was. I saw an immediate parallel between how they got in a hoopla over the one native american guy in the town hall meeting and that of how whites have treated us.

I don’t think they have any sort of guilt for all they or their ancestors have done. I believe they lie to themselves even when mobbing ( which they did to the poor lone native guy in the town) that they are in the right and all other are savages, to be attacked and put down and flat-out wrong.

I find their behavior dangerous.

& yes I believe they have a scary hatred for us in every fiber of their being. I have learned as I mentioned that they will stab you in the back in a minute and they will be nice with a black person one minute and really hating you and wishing bad for you. I stay away and I’ve had more peace in my life since I’ve set boundaries and learned to stay away from negative people.

Exactly, hatred for us is in every fiber of their being. It oozes from their pores. It’s as if this hatred energizes them daily. I’ve had so many experiences with these smiling backstabbers, I’ve had to exit life for an hour to get my head together.
They’re fork tongued. The Native Americans were a perfect example of this. They were smiling in their faces and wishing them well all at the same time plotting to annihilate them and kill them with diseases to take over our now modern day plantation, America.


@ Diaryofanegress

I agree with your brother that religion is a huge obstacle. The other obstacles are white identification, sex with white people, rampant anti-blackness, low self-esteem, and not understanding how much slavery damaged us even to this day.

We are still under the spell of chattel slavery and the slave-0wner’s religion, white God and white Jesus guarantees we will never be free–unless we divorce ourselves from those false beliefs, rampant materialism, sexual perversion, most mass produced entertainment, and our blind worship of anyone black who makes a lot of money.

Our History 

D1Mind  21 days ago

George Washington was elected president because under the British system of the House of Burgesses, which was a 'secret society' of rich white landowning male slaveowners, only landowners could vote. The House of Burgessess was the template for all representative assemblies in the United States. This also means many governors, mayors, supreme court justices and other high officials were also landowners and slave owners. Washingon only came into his large shares of land as a result of marrying the widow of George Custis one of the biggest British landowners and slaveowners. The plantation they lived in was the White House plantation and from that came the later "White House" in DC. Martha Washington Custis' later descendants also built Arlingon Mansion. And it was one of these descendants who Married Robert E. Lee, who inherited the mansion as part of his estate. The Mansion was confiscated after the war and became Arlington cemetery.

The whole establishment of the Kings' companies of the American colonies was to profit off the land and labor of people conquered under the flag of the templars, the church and the Crown. That system created the House of Burgesses to manage the affairs of the company as administrators or local political elite. This was always the system and George Washingon, the former British general, was part of that system, which is why after he became president, he maintained the same system that he was part of under British common law and only expanded the companies assets to the Western Shore (sea to shining sea) as mentioned in the earliest charters given by the British crown. Just read the founding Charter of Pennsylvania which has not been rescinded. Not only that many of the early anthems of the United States are based on British anthems, like God Save the Queen.
The idea that the United States represents a break away from the colonial, corporate exploitation of land and labor as part of the global system of European banking houses and royal charters and common law is simply nonsense. It was simply a change of uniform but underneath the same old system.

Brother BlackHeywood's words

When Bill left office in 2001, the United States had the highest rate of incarceration in the world. Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African Americans constituted 80 to 90 percent of all drug offenders sent to prison, even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs. Prison admissions for drug offenses reached a level in 2000 for African Americans more than 26 times the level in 1983. All of the presidents since 1980 have contributed to mass incarceration, but as Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson recently observed, “President Clinton’s tenure was the worst.”

Both Clintons now express regret over the crime bill, and Hillary says that she supports criminal-justice reforms to undo some of the damage that was done by her husband’s administration. But on the campaign trail, she continues to invoke the economy and the country Bill Clinton left behind as a legacy she would continue.

So what exactly did the Clinton economy look like for black Americans? Taking a hard look at this recent past is about more than just a choice between two candidates. It’s about whether or not the Democratic Party can finally reckon with what its policies have done to African-American communities, and whether it can redeem itself and rightly earn the loyalty of black voters.

An oft-repeated myth about the Clinton administration is that although it was overly tough on crime back in the 1990s, at least its policies were good for the economy and for black unemployment rates. The truth is more troubling. As unemployment rates sank to historically low levels for white Americans in the 1990s, the jobless rate among black men in their 20s who didn’t have a college degree rose to its highest level ever. This increase in joblessness was propelled by the skyrocketing incarceration rate.

When Bill left office in 2001, the true jobless rate for young, non-college-educated black men (including those behind bars) was 42 percent. This figure was never reported. Instead, the media claimed that unemployment rates for African Americans had fallen to record lows, neglecting to mention that this miracle was possible only because incarceration rates were now at record highs.

Bernie wasn't paid Six Figures in High School as Hillary was for her speeches for the same folks who drove America into the ditch. If she has nothing to hide, then why is she hiding the transcripts of her speeches. This is why I would NEVER vote for her and it proves she and Bernie are Not on the same side.



Free stuff is only a problem when Rich folks aren't at the receiving end for some people. I believe it's telling that Hillary Clinton claims she wants to help people but refuse to support expanding the Public Education system to include  College and Trade school. Expanding education opportunities is the fastest way to uplift masses out of poverty, grow our tax base and the economy.  Not supporting this tells me Hillary is more concerned about the bankers who give student loans than she about the families and our country that benefit the most.  It's not hard to see who Hillary Clinton stands for, it is not the American people.

She supported EVERY harmful policy her husband supported that has destroyed many Black Americans. Her speakers fees are six figures for the same folks who "drove America into the ditch" and she refuses to release copies of them to the People she wants to vote for her. She says she is for the people yet she rejects expanding  the public education system to include college and trade schools. That would lift Millions of Americans  (she claims to care about ) out of poverty faster than any policy or  program. And she is telling Americas we need to remain with the status quo which isn't helping many Americans. She is also a pathological liar as we all know from when she was " Co President and FLOTUS". Here is the perfect example of her lying about her 'great work" at the CDF. I do my homework as a voter and American citizen , I am not interested in making history by electing the first woman I want the best person for POTUS and it is not Hillary Rodham Clinton.I want a President I can believe and trust,she is not that person based on her own actions and history. This is not  personal.

 Once again Cornel West is 100% correct, It's tragic that those Black people who marched with Dr King has chosen to support a candidate who represents everything Dr King and the CRM fought so hard against. The CBC members loyalty is to the Democratic Party not the Black Americans who elected them. It's very sad and embarrassing.
Congressman John Lewis has become a compromised Black man, he believes Blacks are somehow indebted to White folks for us fighting them for our rights and winning. He lost my respect when he chose a White author to help him write his books. With all the economic disparity and his platform of being able to help Black writers and such he chose to go with those who already has economic advantage over his own underrepresented people.

 Hillary supported every policy in her husband administration during their Co Presidency that harms Black Americans today. She and Bill effectively put many Blacks in Slavery and disenfranchised many others. After calling Black children Super Predators she somehow cares about Black people ad our issues. Ha.


 Black people are calling and demanding monetary reparations for decades why didn't the Clintons support that. Presidents don't " do what people want " because their supposed to be intelligent enough to have foresight to see the ramifications of the practices, policies and laws they implement. The CBC are  enemies of Black people, they are tools and loyal to the Democratic Party not what's in the best interest of Black Americans. The Crime Bill did not target the folks who brought the drugs into Black communities, it targeted the Black folks who used  drugs, f that's not racist then please tell  me what is. No matter what Constituents want we have Lawmakers who are supposed to have better judgement  not lead the torch and pitchfork crowd.

 An apology is meaningless without monetary damages or support for reparations. Bill Clinton was POTUS how could he pass a law and not know and fully understands the long term ramifications of his Crime Bill.I swear some folks WANT to gullible and fall for anything instead of facing some hard truths.

You didn't do anything , it was the Hillary and Bill Clinton who supported , defended and implemented those laws  without caring about the consequences of Black people and families long term. A good leader doesn't lead for "the moment".
It lies to White people and gives them some false belief of ownership of Black people. It gives the false impression that White Americans are superior to Black people when we know that is not true. Truth and Facts do trump dollars and sense except when it comes to White Supremacy. White people must always the hero in Black people successes and lives in Hollywood movies. That sends a message to many White people that they still have some ownership of Black people and without them Black people would not successful. Hollywood has always been racist and paternalistic toward Black people.
 “If Trump hadn’t inherited $200 million, he’d be selling watches on the streets of Manhattan,” whatever demon possessed Marco Rubio claimed tonight

“I’m not a Superpredator, Hillary!”: Black Lives Matter protestors confront Clinton at South Carolina fundraiser

As we hear Hillary supported her husband Crime Bill , now whose kids are she speaking about, certainly not White children . The fact is Hillary was lockstep with her husbands policies that has harmed and destroyed the lives of many Americans but those laws devastated the Black race. It gave us massive Ue, the loss of Voting Rights and disenfranchising generations of Black folks as we see today.  She has to take responsibility for what she supported.

What logical  reason does a Black man who fought the establishment have to become the establishment?  That's what discredits him, how has Black Americans fared since the CRM , what did we gain the right to mingle with White folks, give them our money as our economic conditions worsen.

However, when you ask "what logical reason" does he have "to become the establishment," I would answer the same as any politician in current times - power and potentially money.  He's like many Americans, regardless of race or other other demographic factors - individual enrichment takes precedence over helping others.

Civil Rights leaders aren't wealthy by nature. Dr King died a poor man. How can you fight for the poor when you're wealthy. That's like the slave and master praying to the same God.

For those who ask

How Bernie pays for his proposals
PlanPaymentRebuild America Act: Sen. Sanders has proposed a $1 trillion plan to rebuild our crumbling infrastructureand put 13 million Americans to work.Paid for by making corporations pay taxes on all of the “profits” they have shifted to the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens, which the Congressional Research Services estimates may currently create losses that approach $100 billion annually, and other loopholes.College for All: Sen. Sanders has proposed making public colleges and universities tuition-free and substantially reducing student debt, in a plan that would cost about $75 billion a year.Paid for by imposing a tax on Wall Street speculators that would generate about $300 billion in revenue.Expand and Extend Social Security: Sen. Sanders has proposed expanding Social Security and extending the solvency of this program until 2065.Paid for by lifting the cap on taxable income above $250,000 so that the wealthy pay the same percentage of their income into Social Security as working people.Youth Jobs Program: Sen. Sanders has proposed a $5.5 billion youth jobs program to create 1 million jobs for disadvantaged young Americans.Paid for by ending the carried interest loophole that allows billionaire hedge fund managers to pay a lower tax rate than nurses and truck drivers.Paid Family and Medical Leave: Sen. Sanders has proposed at least 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave to all workers.Paid for by a payroll tax that would total $1.61 a week for the typical American worker. According to Sen. Gillibrand’s office, this would be “a self-sufficient program that would not add to the federal budget.”Protect Pensions: Sen. Sanders has introduced a plan to prevent cuts to the pensions of over 1.5 million Americans.Paid for by closing two tax loopholes that allow the wealthy to avoid taxes on money they inherit and expensive artwork they collect.Renewable Energy and Clean Jobs Transition: Sen. Sanders has a plan to invest in clean, sustainable energy sources powered by the sun, wind and Earth’s heat. He also has a plan to provide comprehensive benefits to workers as they transition to making the solar panels, wind turbines, and batteries of tomorrow.Paid for by stopping taxpayer-funded giveaways to oil, gas and coal companies. Sen. Sanders has introduced a plan to expand health care coverage to every American.Paid for by a 6.2 percent income-based health care premium paid by employers, a 2.2 percent income-based premium paid by households, progressive income tax rates, taxing capital gains and dividends the same as income from work, limiting tax deductions for the rich, adjusting the estate tax, and savings from health tax expenditures.

 He should've did all he could to get folks JOBS and JOB TRAINING. Even with the ACA more folks particularly Black are uninsured or cannot afford the premiums. In States that doesn't have subsidies those folks still must purchase health insurance or be find thru the pittance of the income tax refund they depend on. How did President Obama help Blacks, poor Whites and other with the ACA again.

The Best thing Black Americans can do is support someone who supports us, that person happens to be Bernie Sanders. There is nothing more urgent and important than EDUCATION, Bernie wants to invest in our children by offering them the same opportunity all others have if they do the work and that would be Free College and Trade Schools a barrier that stagnated many Blacks, poor Whites and POC.Investing in free college is investing in Americans for a better America. Hillary wants the status quo which has not served Black Americans at all. The choice is not hard, this is about who has our best interest at heart.
 Her supporters are "Fantasizing " about an America that wasn't like they seem to remember what it really was like. They ignore all the harmful bills and policies Hilary stood by and defended.Michelle Alexander  The New Jim Crow summed it up nicely.

I don't understand the argument against Free College and Trade schools for all Americans. We are investing in our own people and country which makes our country better and stronger. Everyone benefits when we have a well educated American people. #Bernie2016

 Should've, would've and could 've  is not reality. So-called Hillary Care did not happen and never was going to happen. It ridiculous to mention it and proves Hillary is not an honest person. According to her President Obama did very little without consulting her then she asked the advice of her good pal and confident Henry Kissinger, a war criminal.

This book vindicate Cornel West, Tavis Smiley and myself who have criticized President Obama. Dr Dyson sat at the President's table and was one of the voices who attacked the same the critics of the President who he now agrees with. The Obama Presidency is a disappointment for Black Americans.

Savant's new words in 2016

By the way, Nick Mosby is running for mayor-making use of the political capital gained this past April by his wife Marilyn--which she decided to prosecute the six cops in whose custody Freddie Gray died. Marilyn Mosby, the DA, was speaking on our campus today. However, I couldn't go because Eddie Conway is coming next week, and that would be twice our class would be missed. Marshall Eddie Conway has decided to focus his activist work in Sandtown ghetto of West Baltimore where Freddie Gray lived and died. Regarding De Ray, the BLM person running for mayor, I believe the last time (or one of he last times) I saw him was during the summer at a showing of the film BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION. The showing had to be interrupted because their were threats against the theatre, including a threat to kill members of the Black Lives Matters group (De Ray being one of them). My return to regular class activities has, naturally, reduced the amount of time I can spend at meetings and rallies, but will do so when I can...especially on weekends. Some stuff is happening at Red Emmas Café/Bookstore (an Anarchist collective) this weekend. Perhaps, if in Bmore, I can introduce you to some of that collective. I wanted to introduce Attai to some of our homegrown revolutionaries, but I think he was heading out of Bmore and didn't have time. But RED EMMAS is becoming a happening spot in terms of activism--multirac ial as well as Black or Latino activism. And, of course, they're within the radar of the FBI and ex-left reactionaries like David Horowitz.



Ah, brother De Ray McKesson. He filed recently for the mayoral race in Bmore. Well...hmmm from the left many are skeptical that this is a good move. They don't want the Black Li ves Matter movement to get too tangled up with the Establishment, with the Democratic Party machine. (Obviously, the Republicans are not even given a first thought, let alone a second). The Right (especially in the police establishment) regards DeRay simply calls him a cop hater, aiding and abetting criminality and terrorism. (We protestors, though nonviolent, have been accused of aiding terrorism and criminality because of our protests of police terrorism. You know how white racists accused YOU of being racist when you call them out for their racism. Cops terrorize us, and denounce us as terrorists--or aiding and abetting such--when we protest THEIR terrorism). Police are actually accusing DeRay McKesson if having provoked the April uprising in Bmore (his home town) and in other cities across the nation Moderates are saying that De Ray's move is a good thing because even if BLM raised awareness, and continues to do so, actually accomplishment of change (say the moderates) do require working within the political system and the law. My feelings are mixed because I don't want to see this mainly youth movement co-opted by the Democratic Party establishment, the "liberal " corporativists. But such a campaign may force a leftward shift on the part of politicians in the system, as Bernie seems to be doing with Clinton. DeRay is right that we won't get any great transformation by simply following the traditional political paths. One thing you can be sure of: Whoever runs in Baltimore MUST address these issues of racism, police brutality and economic deprivation or be rejected by the community. There's a lot of anger pent up in the community here; and some of it is against the Negro political class, not just the cops and the racists.



 Beaucoups des Noirs Americains observe la meme chose quand ils voyage a votre pays: par exemples Richard Wright, W.E.B Du Bois, mon Oncle Oscar (un soldat Americain a Normandie) et moi, Savant. (Quand j'etais un enfant, mon Oncle Oscar m' a dit : "Well those white folks in France are just a different group. Crackers over here make you have to look over your shoulder every other minute, cause you don't know what they up to. But in France I could just cool it, be myself sometimes, not always looking over my shoulder. Do you know, Savant, that in the years that I was in Paris after Normandy I was NEVER stopped by a French cop even one time for any reason? Not even one time did anybody say I can't eat here, or use this bathroom, be walking in this or that neighborhood or be seen in the company of a woman of the Caucasian persuasion." ) I got to see what he meant, what Ta observed when I finally visited France as a adult. In L'Amerique jour le jour, Simone de Beauvoir mentioned being introduced to members of a Black church in Harlem during the 19440's: "In her country there's no segregation, no KKK, no cops on your back." C'est vrai...main j'observait les problemes raciaux des Noirs francophone et les peuples Nord Africains. That did upset me even if it wasn't directed at me. Ta Nehisi Coates est un fils de Paul Coates, un chef des Panthers Noirs de Baltimore pendant les annees 1960s et (early) 70s. Peut-etre vous lisez aussi MARSHALL LAW:: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A BALTIMORE BLACK PANTHER, par Marshall Eddie Conway. Mr. Conway visitera a mon university le prochain semain.


I've seen Latinos who support right wing Republicans despite their anti-Latin racism (including one Latin Republican presidential hopeful). I've seen a couple of Blacks wave Confederate flags. AndI've no doubt that you could even have found European Jews who collaborated with Nazis. Such persons are commonly known among THEIR OWN PEOPLE (and not just them) as fools ...or traitors



 But there is no longer a left, at least not a Communist left, for anyone to fight. Hence the political spectrum has moved so far to the right that even "liberals " are seen as leftists. In the past, it was mainly the extreme right which saw liberals as leftists.  ]

Sandra Bland

Nixak*77*  a month ago
RE: Ms Sandra Bland's Death while in Police Custody in TX, based on a BOGUS Stop:
1} After that cop Encinia stopped Sandra based on BS, he took her off-camera & then slammed her head into the ground while cuffing her. Sandra can be heard [but 'conveniently' can NOT be seen] complaining that Encinia slammed her head into the ground so hard she was dizzy & could NOT even hear out of one of her ears. Based on this she may have had a concussion & even internal brain-bleeding that, untreated could have been fatal. If so then these TX cops likely fabricated this whole 'Sandra hung herself in her cell' meme to cover up their culpability for in effect her homicide!
2} From WSWS & Global Research, Aug 18, 2015- 'The Cover-up of Torture in America's Prisons':} Last week, the New York Times reported allegations that prison guards systematically tortured inmates at Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York following the high profile escape of 2 inmates.
- More than 60 prisoners filed complaints claiming that they suffered abuse, including beatings, stranglings and death threats. Most significant, however, was the apparent personal involvement of New York's Dem Governor Andrew Cuomo, in these brutal actions.
- Just hours before state prison guards without name tags descended upon the cell block to TORTURE the escapees' fellow prisoners, Cuomo visited the prison, asking one inmate, in the presence of the media, why he did not hear the escapees cutting through their prison bars. 'It must have kept you awake with all that cutting, huh?', before giving him 'his best tough-guy stare,' according to the prisoner, and walking off.
- Within a matter of hours, the inmate Cuomo spoke to was asked by an unnamed guard, 'You know what waterboarding is?', before having His Head Thrust into a PLASTIC BAG HANGING FROM A PIPE and being beaten for 20 minutes. Another inmate also reported being HUNG BY A PLASTIC BAG USED AS A NOOSE TILL HE PASSED OUT.
- Despite these shocking revelations, not a single national news outlet has commented on the incident since Wednesday or even bothered to follow up on the story - Including the NY-Times... {
3} One of notorious Ex Chicago PD Lt of Dects Jon Burge's favorite methods [of several he regularly used] for torturing false confessions out of mainly Black [& some Latino] suspects, was to hand-cuff the suspect to a stationary object [like a pole] w their hands behind them & then 'bag-em' / 'hood-em' = Wrapping a plastic bag or plastic type-writer bag tightly around the prisoner's head, to the point of passing-out!! If the prisoner still resisted confessing, Burge & his 'crew' would just keep on repeating this till they 'broke' the prisoners' resistance. This was / is a 'deviously clever' method of torture cause it left / leaves NO marks on its victims- so long as they did / do NOT suffocate to death or collapse into a coma!!!
So we see based on points 2 & 3 the Cops have been documented using plastic bags to 'hood' &/or hang prisoners in their cells!!! So maybe Encinia &/or his fellow TX 'crew' were having a bit of 'fun' w Sandra, but took it too far! Especially w her prior head injury she got from Encinia slamming her head into the ground!!!
PS: IMO it is indeed possible that Sandra was targeted- IMO NOT far-fetched at-all. The first thing TX cop Encinia would have noticed is that Sandra car had out of state [IL] plates. IMO he likely ran her plate number & instantly got a computer data-base read-out that the car belonged to a Sandra Bland from Chicago, a known Black Lives Matter Activist!!! Otherwise he had NO real cause to even stop Sandra in the first place!!!

Nixak77's Words

IMO James Petras' Global Research article- is a particularly BLISTERING Critique of the Dim's in-house 'progressive' 'radicals' ala Jesse J., Dennis K, Obama & now Bernie- & their role of effectively keeping progressives tied to the Dim party, rather than kicking the Dims to the curb- & moving to &/or forming a real progressive &/or radical movement & party.
IMO Based on Mr Petras' article Sander's supporters [ala some commenters here] are really stretching credulity by claiming Sanders running as a Dim helps GP Jill Stein, just because he's articulating many of the same issues as the GP Platform.
- First of all Sanders' foreign policy has LITTLE in common w the GP's. IMO Bernie's FP outline basically sounds like the 'Obama Candidate's' did back in 2008. Obama then [like Bernie now] too hyped the fact that he as a IL state senator back in 2002 [NOT as US senator from IL: 2004 - 2008] said something that could be 'broadly interpreted' as speaking against the Iraq War- to 'appear' separate himself from Billary re Iraq, & then sell himself as a so-called 'peace-candidate' [we've seen just how much of a 'Peace' {NOT!} POTUS he's actually been]. But Obama never critiqued the Iraq Attack Pt-2 as an ILLEGAL & IMMORAL War based on LIES!!! He instead called it a 'dumb' war [implying he's just A-OK w 'smart' wars], cause he figured Iran would be the main strategic beneficiary of the US recklessly 'regime-changing' Saddam [Has Bernie ever acknowledged the Iraq Attack Pt-2 was indeed an ILLEGAL War based on LIES?].
- But in fact Iraq is the only 'clear' distinction Bernie can try to make re FP vs Killary! Other than that his FP position mirrors hers, & she even called him out on this during the last Dim POTUS debate!!!
Bernie's Domestic policy could be described as a 'lite' version of the GP's [some might say a watered-down milquetoast facsimile of the GP's], but he's presenting it as if it's his [or perhaps FDR's]- IE: Bernie's NOT mentioning the GP, let alone Jill Stein, at-all!! So should Bernie NOT make it, it's a far-gone conclusion he'll endorse Billary [ala Jesse J. in 1984 - 88 & Dennis K. in 2004 - 08]. So just how will the GP & Jill Stein benefit from that- instead of DNC Corp Dim Billary??!! If Bernie drops out & then endorses Billary, IMO at-least 80% - 90% [maybe upwards of 95%] of Bernie's people will 'follow his lead' & then back Billary- Meaning likely NOT more than 10% - 15% of his folks [& likely Less] will turn to & back the GP's Jill Stein or some-other 3rd party independent candidate(s)!!!
My Point: It's quite a dubious proposition that Bernie running as a Dim can in ANY Way help the GP & Jill Stein!!!

The fact is because of the cramped, unsanitary conditions in CAFO factory farms, plus the unnatural diets these animals [especially cattle] are fed, plus the rush to fatten them for the slaughter-house 'market'- They simply can NOT - NOT feed these CAFOed animals a slew / 'witches-brew' of drugs, growth-hormones & antibiotics!!!
But they can NOT go back to open-range / grass-fed beef, because the US, w one of the World's highest [if not THEE HIGHEST - along w Australia] per capita rate of meat consumption [+6Xs more than the Aver African & +30Xs more than the aver Indian & Bangladeshi]- the US' total Meat consumption has increased at-least 8Xs to up to 12Xs since 1900 [current US per capita rate of meat consumption = 2Xs - 3Xs more than for 1900 while the US population has increased +4Xs since 1900]. There's simply NO way meat producers could continue to 'meet' such a quantum-leap in the US meat-market demand, via old-fashion open-range grass-fed cattle grazing!!!
Thus at this point its either dramatically cut the US per-capita meat consumption by moving away from the SAD meat-based diet to a more plant-based diet, or just keep 'pigging-out' on drug & disease infested meat from CAFO factory farms!!! And of-course CAFOs are also a serious environmental insult!!!

1} That electing more Dims will really make a real difference re halting &/or reversing the 'Hard rightward' shift in US Poly-Tricks.
2} That Obama's really serious re: 'campaign finance reform' when the 'Obama Candidate' got more $$$ from Wall St Banksters, than John ['The Fundamentals of the US Econ are Strong'] McCain did- & also maybe even more than Billary did for 2007 - 08 POTUS race. It seems Obama got even more corp & Wall St Bankster $$$ for his 2012 POTUS race.
3} That Repug Bush Jr's regime was totally to blame for the 2007 - 08 economic 'melt-down'. Dim Slick Willy {dollar}Bill Clinton's regime's, spearheaded by the 'Rubenite Mob' [IE: 'Rob' Ruben, Larry Summers & Tim Geithner]- dereging of Wall St Banksters [led to the derivatives & Housing bubbles], plus their role in urging for the repeal of Glass-Steagal, among other-things- Set the stage for the economy to 'melt-down' on Bush Jr's watch.

} AS POTUS I [Bernie] will defend this nation, its people, and America’s vital 'strategic interests' [what exactly does that mean]... America must defend freedom at home and abroad [humm...], Senator Sanders will protect America, and be relentless in combating terrorists... [exactly who are these so-called 'Terrorists'] {
So-called US vital 'strategic interests' in the Mid-East boils down to OIL [& Israel] & in Africa it boils down to OIL [NOTE: the US military is the World's top Oil / Gas-GUZZLER] plus a slew of key minerals [IE: copper, gold, diamonds, tin, cobalt, coltan, etc...]. So is Sanders saying he's prepared to commit the US military to 'insure' US Biz-Corps are able to continue 'exploiting' these key strategic mineral resource-markets in the Mid East & Africa, etc...???
'Defending freedom at home'- So is Bernie committing to reigning in the US mass-Surveillance-Security {police}State, that's threatening everyone's legit right to privacy & freedom of [legit] speech & legit access to important info??!
'Defending Freedom at Abroad'- Has Bernie forgot that the Bush Cheney Gang's official name for their illegal Iraq-Attack Pt-2 was called "Op Enduring Iraqi 'FREEDOM' " & that OBomber & KIllary 'R2P' 'Humanitarian' Bombed Libya [then Africa's most prosperous nation] into total chaos & ruin??! Is this what Bernie means by 'Defending Freedom Abroad'??!
Bernie refuses to out-right reject assassination by Drone-Strike, or even be specific about just how his drone policy would really be much different than OBomber's current one [IMO Bernie's foreign policy talking-points sound too much like the 'Obama Candidate's' did in 2008]- IE Out-Right REJECTION Of: Signature Drone Strikes [= zeroing in on a suspect cell phone number, rather than on an actual terror suspect]; 'Terror Tues' [or it's equivalent]; Extra-Judicial Execution by Drone [including of US citizens & legal residents ala Anwar Al-Awlaki & his 16 yr old son]; The Idea that there's an 'acceptable' level of 'collateral damage' [= innocent civilians] when targeting 'terror-suspects'- especially in countries the US is NOT even 'officially' at WAR with ...
Bernie's 'smart' Terror-plan to combat ISIS is to let the Saudi headed GCC spear-head the fight vs ISIS- which is like letting the FOX guard the chicken-coop, or trusting in the arsonist 'fire-fighter' to 'Do the Right Thing' [= NOT so smart at-all]!!
And is Bernie ready to reject the Neo-CON's 'regime-change' agenda which has effectively been a center-piece of US policy since the immediate wake of the 9-11 'New Pearl Harbor' Event- & articulated in detail at-least a Yr earlier, in that Bush-Cheneyite NeoCON PNAC-Manifesto of Sept 2000??!!

Nixak*77*  8 days ago
My question for Bernie supporters [ala these young, lovely & articulate Isa Sisters], what's their 'Plan-B' should Bernie NOT make it & then he endorses Billary, as he's already committed to do [as the price of admission for him running as a Dim]??
The odds are stacked HI against Bernie- cause the Billary Clintons [whose influence over the DNC should NOT be under-estimated - the current DNC chair-woman has a long link to the Clintons] are determined NOT to let 'lightning strike them twice' [back to back] ala Obama in 2008. Plus there's NO one w the counter weight / influence among Dim insiders & Dem voters vis-a-vis the Billary Clintons to back & boost Bernie to the Oval Office w their key pivotal endorsement- ala Teddy Kennedy re: Obama's run vs Billary in 2008 [except Obama himself & IMO that won't happen].
- From CounterPunch Jan 4, 2016: 'Why Sanders Will Not be the Democratic Nominee, No Matter What Happens in the Primaries': } If you think Bernie Sanders will be the Democratic nominee for President in 2016, you’re out of your mind.
- There's NO way the Democrat Party will allow that to happen, for 2 main reasons:
1} It's Billary’s turn to be the nominee. Though that’s pretty distasteful for most Bernie’ supporters, it’s been decided by people who actually matter in the party’s hierarchy (read: NOT you).
2} It is simply IMPOSSIBLE that a neoliberal, right-wing political party like the Democrats in a country with a nominally right-leaning electorate will allow their standard bearer to be a self-described 'socialist'.
- Putting aside the fact that Sanders is NOT a 'real' socialist, and at best is a slightly right-of-center social democrat, he's still able to identify as one in US politics & the Democrat Party will NOT allow themselves to be identified as “socialist”- Won’t happen guys.
Sanders, in a Dec 2014, interview with New York Magazine, said that he would not run as an independent and “play spoiler” like Ralph Nader did.
It’s even possible Sanders may win a majority of the primaries. But he still won’t be the Democratic nominee. The Democrat Party will NEVER allow it.
- The Democrat National Convention, where the Democrat's nominee will be decided, is under NO obligation to assign delegates to the winners of primary states. In fact, the rules don’t even specify that the primary results be taken into account when deciding on the nominee.
- Plus Billary's lead in superdelegates is already insurmountable, so Bernie doesn’t really have a chance... {
So if this above cited CP article's analysis is correct [IMO it most likely is]- again Bernie supporters must ask themselves what's their 'Plan-B'??? IE: Backing GP candidate Jill Stein, or some other progressive 3rd Party independent candidate [which so-called 'independent socialist' Bernie specifically rejected running as]- Or just sitting-out the 2016 POTUS election??? Other than that their 'choice' will be either Dim Billary / Killary vs Repug Trump [or some other Repug just as BAD him / them]!!!

Until the so-called 'liberal-left' is ready to take on & try to 'Cut the Head off the Snake of' the dubious narrative of the 9-11 'New Pearl Harbor' Event, along w addressing dubious discrepancies re: the Boston Bombing, Chelie Hebdo & San Bernardino 'terror attacks', etc..., anti-Islamic bigotry will only grow in so-called 'post-racial' [NOT!] USA & in the EU!!
- One big clue that there's more to these dubious so-called 'Islamic Terror' attacks than what they seem- is that most of them had near simultaneous 'drills' 'mimicking' virtually the same scenario, near the same location as these 'Terror-Attacks' themselves. Another is that the alleged 'terrorists' are often known to &/or were being tracked by authorities- implying the attacks could have / should have been preventable.
- I won't rehash all the glaring 'issues' re the 9-11 'New Pearl Harbor' Event yet again- but rather briefly outline some glaring discrepancies re: Boston, Charlie Hebdo [CH] & San Bernardino [SB].
Re: Boston: There 'coincidentally' apparently was a 'terror-attack' drill taking place nearby earlier that day [Ditto re: 9-11-2001, 7-7-2005 re the London Metro & Bus bombings, & re Paris' Nov 2015 attacks- among others].
- Putin had Russian security-services specifically warn the US about the Tsarnaev Bros' links to & visits w Chechen 'terror groups', at-least 2 YRs before the bombing of the Boston Marathon. So we KNOW they were [or at-least should have been] on the FBI's 'radar'.
- The younger Tsarnaev Bro was convicted in 2015 of the bombing using a pressure-cooker bomb packed in a Black back-pack, yet photos of him that day minutes before the bombs went off, clearly shows ‎Tamerlan wearing a WHITE back-pack.
- The elder Tsarnaev Bro was 'officially' killed in a shoot-out w cops, yet there's apparently a video of him being arrested ALIVE- stripped-naked & being put in a squad-car. Later his battered dead-body's shown stretched-out on a slab in the morgue.
- A friend of the elder Tsarnaev Bro who was under-going 'interrogation' by 2 FBI agents, ended-up apparently 'EXECUTED' by 1 of those agents in Miami!!
CH in Paris: Re the ole 'conveniently left &/or found' photo ID 'trick' yet again- The alleged CH terror perps [the 2 Kouachi Bros = the 2 Tsarnaev Bros 'redux'], were IDed as the CH gunmen after one of them allegedly 'conveniently' left his photo ID in the abandoned get-away car [to be discovered later]. This is especially 'hard to buy' cause the CH gunmen apparently went out-of their way NOT to be IDed by wearing ski-masks & gloves!! [Note: as w the Tsarnaev Bros, the Kouachi Bros were already on French authorities' 'radar']
- A Deputy police chief from the Kouachi Bros home town near Paris, ['allegedly'] Commits suicide in his own office at 1A.M., just a couple of hrs after being debriefed about evidence directly related to the CH attack case- Humm...
- There's a video showing one of the Paris cops who allegedly was killed by the CH gunman, actually being [allegedly] 'shot' execution style by a CH gunman- Except NOT really! What it really shows is the CH gunman [who obviously knows how to handle his weapon], shooting into the GROUND Near the cop's head [= a clear miss at point-blank range] & then the cop laying his head on the ground & playing 'dead'- while the gunman just keeps walking. And there's NO pool of blood collecting anywhere near that cop's head &/or body.
- The 'Resurrection' of Anwar Al-Alwaki: Just before the Kouachi Bros are 'officially' killed-off, the oldest one makes a video claiming that Anwar al-Alwaki helped both Plan & FINANCE the Jan 2015 CH Paris attacks- Except- al-Alwaki was 'officially' KILLED-Off by an OBomber OKed drone strike in Sep 2011 = 3.5 YRS BEFORE the Jan 2015 CH attacks!!! Plus Al-Alwaki spent several months [or even a Yr or more] running for his life, hiding-out & dodging US drones out to kill him- in Yemen's sparse desert region. So just how in HELL could a DEAD-Guy both Plan & FINANCE a sophisticated Terror {'black'}Op at-least 3.5 YRS AFTER his death [IMO more like 4Yrs in advance]??!!
SB: Firstly- The alleged SB attackers were Parents of a New-Born, & the woman was a NURSING-Mom. FYI: It's relatively rare for Muslim [or any] Women to be terrorist attackers, & UNHEARD Of [till SB] for a NURSING MOM of a New-Born to ['allegedly'] be one!!!
- Plus this nursing mom was barely 100 lbs soaking wet. Yet we're supposed to 'buy' the hype that she was just able to wield a hi-powered semi-automatic assault-rifle just like 'Rambo' & the 'Terminator', absent any training- Huhh WTF??!!!
- There were initial reports that the Gun-MEN were 3 WHITE MALES of Tall & Athletic build, dressed in military attire... So what happened to them?! Did they just 'vanish' into 'thin-air'??!!
PS: Progressives need to stop trippin on Repug Trump so much [what the Hell else do they expect from a Hog but a Grunt], & put 'hip-sounding' anti-Islamic bigoted 'cruise-missile' 'leftist-liberals' ala Bill Maher & Sam Harris & especially Killary [I Came, I Saw, He Died. Ha, ha, ha!] Clinton in 'Check'- who theoretically 'progressives' have more influence & impact on than Repugs like Donald [Duck] Trump!!

NAIRN: They [the US military & the CIA] would oftimes back formal military forces that go into the field and wipe out entire villages. The Guatemalan military did that, especially during the early '80s when the Reagan administration was backing them enthusiastically under the time of the dictator general Rios Montt. And they would go into villages in the Mayan highlands in the northwest, and I was there, I spoke to the soldiers as they were doing it, I spoke to survivors. They would DECAPITATE people. They would CRUCIFY people. They would use the [very same] tactics that ISIS uses TODAY that's shocking the world.
HEDGES: You had written about a death squad leader completely trained, funded, backed by the U.S. called Chele Medrano in El Salvador who was eventually assassinated by the FMLN rebels. And when we were in El Salvador, the head of the military group, Col. James Steele, who had been with some of the dirtiest army units in Vietnam, there was always that question as to the extent--we knew that there were, there was collaboration between the death squads, which were run primarily out of the hacienda police, the treasury police, and the national police. And then you had freelance squads run by the right-wing group of Roberto D'Abuisson and others IE: and the army too. So then right in the middle of the Iraq war we find Steele resurrected as a private contractor and sent to train, arm, equip, and run the Shiite death squads in Iraq. And suddenly we are hearing the Salvador option.
NAIRN: In El Salvador some people showed me some of these actual files, and Gen. Medrano, who was seen as the godfather of the Salvadoran death squads because starting in the late '60s & thru the early '80s he was the leader working on behalf of the U.S. and organizing the system. I spent 13 hours interviewing him on tape. And he drew diagrams. And he explained to me how the Salvadoran priests, the nuns, the catechists, the unionists, all became targets. And it was his mission to kill them all. He described in great detail how he did this while working on the payroll of the USA.
- You mentioned Vietnam, and Steele having served in Vietnam. Medrano showed me a plaque. Photographer Mickey [Kienitz] was working with me took this photo of Gen. Medrano proudly showing the plaque given to him by the U.S. Green Berets in Vietnam when they brought him over for several months to observe their methods and work with them.
- He also showed me a silver medal, which he said was presented to him in the Oval Office by LBJ. It said 'For Exceptionally Meritorious Service'. And these were the death squads that produced actions like the rape and murder of the nuns. The anniversary of which just, just happened few days ago.- & also the assassination of Archbishop Romero.
- An important aspect of that related to today's [ISIS} situation where the, the world is finally starting to understand what's involved with political killing when they see the videos of ISIS. With the death squad method in Salvador, not only would they kill but they would cut off hands, they would cut off arms, and they would display their handiwork on the road... {
After saying all of this IMO what's truly amazing is that Nairn is 'amazed' that people on the front-lines of the US NeoCONs' / Neo-Liberals' regime-change agenda in Iraq, Libya & Syria, etc- are convinced that the 'Rise of ISIS' very well may be yet another CIA style 'Dirty-War' 'Black-Op' or at the very least have 'contracted' it out to their 'surrogates' in the Saudis' & Turks' 'intel' [often trained &/or work in tandem w the CIA, DOD & US private merc orgs ala Black-Water / Xe]. With all due respect- Exactly why shouldn't they think that Mr Nairn, especially considering all the links that you've just outlined above??!
Just 3 yrs ago No-One [at-least NOT in the west] even Heard of ISIS, now they're all everyone's talking about! And they've just 'conveniently' showed up in the very places the Neo-CONS marked-out for Regime-Change in the immediately aftermath of the 9-11 'New Pearl Harbor' Event [IE: Syria, Iraq & Libya]- Humm... In 2013 OBomber was all set to BOMB Syria based on a likely false-flag Sarin attack, but could NOT quite get all the ducks lined up for a 'go'. So in 2014 ISIS pops-up in Syria & Iraq -seemingly almost out-of nowhere- So now the US, France & NATO is doing what- BOMBING Syria, 'conveniently' using ISIS as their pretext- Humm... I'm very suspicious of such 'coincidences'!!!

FYI: A young Richard [the 'Boss'] Daley Sr was 'implicated' in the notorious 1919 Chicago 'Red-Summer' race-riot, where Bridgeport's [Daley's old neighborhood] Irish gangs 'invented' the drive-by shooting, by driving thru Bronzeville & shooting at Blacks on the street.
Young 'Boss' Daley's Bridgeport Irish gang's intent was to burn-down Bronzeville & drive Blacks there out of Chicago!
PS-Note: Traditionally many of Chicago's top politicians, cops & firemen came from Bridgeport. I would NOT be too surprised if Jon Burge also came from Bridgeport [or maybe Marquette-Park].

2 Cleveland Cops gunned-down 12 yr old Tamir Rice for having a toy-'gun', in just 2secs after rolling up on him like the 'Jump-Out Boys'- which they initially LIED by claiming Tamir pointed his [TOY]'gun' at them after they 'allegedly' repeatedly ordering him to 'drop it'- Except the video shows NO such thing actually happened!!! Tamir NEVER pointed his [TOY]'gun' at them, & in fact apparently had it tucked away under his jacket the whole time!!! Never-the-less those 2 LYING Child-KILLING Cops still walked!!!
Killer Cop Wilson gunned-down unarmed Mike Brown after claiming [a LIE] he stopped him for shop-lifting some cigars 15 mins earlier. Killer Cop Wilson again LIED [& these are NOT the only LIES he told] that Big-Mike' socked him in his left jaw, except the pics show it was his RIGHT Jaw [facing away from Mike] that perhaps / maybe [or NOT] might have been bruised!!! Yet folks like you & your ilk cheered as Killer Cop Wilson walked scot-free!!!
Compare that to 'Demon Dylan' Roof, who cold-bloodedly gunned-down 9 Black church members in Church- 6 women & 3 men, 6 of those church members were over 45yrs old- 3 of them over 70!!! Yet the cops NOT only arrested that racist terrorist killer alive & intact, but even 'treated' 'Demon Dylan' to a Big Mac & Big Gulp w Fires!!!
That's called 'Justice' in so-called 'Post-Racial' AmeriKKKa!!!

Are Whites Really the Cops Main Shooting Victims?
There’s a meme circulating [IE: your comment] that the cops mostly shoot white vics-perps to death. So is this true? Well based on data compiled by it’s NOT. data shows 335 Blacks were killed by US cops in 2015 [over 100+ were confirmed / ‘admitted‘ to be unarmed] + 192 Hispanics + 20 Native Americans & Pacific Islanders + 22 Asians vs 508 whites. Thus the number of NON-whites killed by cops is 570 vs 508 whites- w Blacks comprising over +58% of the total for NON-white Killer-cop victims [or 31% of the total including whites].
- But IMO this ‘official’ tally is actually an undercount for the total of NON-whites killed by cops- because the true number is hidden in the category ‘race-unknown’. For just 2015 there were a total of 104 people killed by cops
that are counted as ‘race-unknown’. However a quick scan of WHERE some of these folks were killed by cops, suggests that they are mainly people of color- [IMO mainly Black] IE: for Chicago I know that the addresses given in +80% or more of these cases are in Black neighborhoods, & a few of these so-called ‘race-unknown’ cases were killed in Compton CA which is an overwhelmingly Black suburb of LA, ditto for Ferguson MO, E.Peroia IL, Benton Harbor & Detroit MI, & Baltimore MD. Furthermore some of the so-called ‘unknown-race’ cases have Hispanic surnames. Thus IMO likely 2/3s of these 104 cases are Black w the remaining divided equally between Hispanics & whites. That would mean in fact for 2015 there were 400 Blacks & 210 Hispanics killed by cops vs 525 whites. That means likely a total of 655 NON-white killer-cop victims vs 526 whites killed by cops. With 61% of all NON-white victims being Black [= 34% of the total including whites]. Thus about 44% of victims killed by cops are white vs 56% are NON-white [34% of that 56% are Black].
- Now considering that Blacks are just 13% of the US population vs 65% for whites, this means Blacks are killed by cops at a rate 2.585Xs GREATER than their % of the US population vs whites killed at a rate 0.68Xs LESS than their % of the US population- Which means US cops kill Blacks at a rate at-least 3.3Xs faster & likely up-to 3.7 - 3.8Xs faster than they do whites, & Hispanics at a rate of approx 1.6Xs faster than they do whites.
Note: In 2015 cops apparently did kill more white women [30] than the total of NON-white women they killed [22], though they still killed Black women at a rate of over +2.5Xs faster than they did white women!
PS: In 2015 there were 42 Cops in the entire US including City, State, & Federal [FBI, DEA, ATF, US Marshals] officers murdered in the line of duty vs 52 killed in crashes, vehicle & training [& other] accidents. In 2014 49 US cops were murdered in the line of duty vs another 49 killed in crashes & accidents.
- So that’s 42 Cops murdered vs them killing a total of ?1134? [actually 1180] people! Indeed US Cops actually killed 10 more women [52], than were themselves killed by perpetrators [42] in 2015!!!

That's a real 'generous' interpretation re: Mesopotamian vs Nile River Valley civilization! In fact both regions had pre-dynastic periods that went back for 1000s of yrs BEFORE the 'official' point of either Egyptian or Sumerian civilization. This includes formation of small towns & cities, development of agriculture, arts & crafts, writing, etc... From Wikipedia re: Pre-Dynastic Egyptian & Nile River Valley culture:} There is evidence of pastoralism and cultivation of cereals in the East Sahara in the 7th millennium BC.
By 6000 BC predynastic Egyptians in the southwestern corner of Egypt were herding cattle. Symbols on Gerzean pottery, c.4th millennium BC, resemble traditional hieroglyph writing. In ancient Egypt mortar was in use by 4000 BC, and ancient Egyptians were producing ceramic faience as early as 3500 BC. Ancient Egypt gains credit for the tallest ancient pyramids and early forms of surgery and barge transport.
It is now recognized that the pre-Dynastic Egyptian states were part of a string of inter-related cultures along the Nile Valley as far south as Sudan. Some of these (notably Ta-Seti and the city of pre-Kerma) had monarchies and urban development by 3000 BC. Pre-Kerma became the basis of the first Kushite empire (Kerma, c.2500-1500 BC)... {
- And from BBC 'The Story of the Nile' - Feb 17, 2011:} By 3100 BC the Nile Valley and Delta had coalesced into a single entity that was the World's FIRST Large Nation-State... { = Egyptian Civilization: 1st Dynasty founder- Narmer / Menes from Upper Egypt [aka Nubia].
PS: And Just who were the pre 4th millennium BCE proto-Sumerians?? From Wikipedia: } Historians have 'SUGGESTED' that Sumer was first permanently settled between c. 5500 and 4000 BC by a non-Semitic people who spoke the Sumerian language (pointing to the names of cities, rivers, basic occupations, etc., as evidence).
These 'CONJECTURED' [= conjured-up?] Pre-Historic people are now called "proto-Euphrateans" or "Ubaidians", and are 'THEORIZED' to have evolved from the Samarra culture of northern Mesopotamia (Assyria). The 'Ubaidians' (NEVER [even] mentioned by the Sumerians themselves) are 'PRESUMED' by modern-day scholars to have been the first civilizing force in Sumer, draining the marshes for agriculture, developing trade, and establishing industries, including weaving, leatherwork, metalwork, masonry, and pottery.
However, some scholars contest the idea of a Proto-Euphratean language or one substrate language. It has been 'suggested' by them and others, that the Sumerian language was originally that of the hunter and fisher peoples, who lived in the marshland and the Eastern Arabia littoral region, and were part of the Arabian bifacial culture.
RELIABLE historical records begin much later; there are NONE [= ZERO] in Sumer of ANY Kind that have been dated BEFORE Enmebaragesi (c. 26th century BCE)... { Sounds like historians don't really know who settled the Mesopotamia before the 4th millennium BCE, NOR where they Really came from- which why this 'issue' is called the 'Sumerian Problem'!! So they've just conjured-up based on 'conjecture', some hypothetical folk just to plug this gap!!!
- Thus if you want to 'move Sumeria's goal post' to 6500 BCE, Dr Ball & Mr Browder can do the same for ancient Egypt to 7000 BCE!!
Most historians generally mark the point where dynasties, &/or the union of city-states as official confederations under unified government(s), as the official beginning of a particular 'civilization'. That's why the fertile crescent region is called the 'Cradle of Civilization'. FYI: the Fertile Crescent ain't just the Mesopotamia. Its an arc that stretches from the NILE River valley thru the Levant over to & including the Mesopotamia! So you choose to focus on the Mesopotamia portion of the Fertile Crescent / Cradle of Civilization, Dr Ball & Mr Browder are focused on the Nile River Valley portion of the Fertile Crescent / Cradle of Civilization; while I tend to look at the link between both regions.

First of all- Technically most Africans / people of African ancestry are NOT truly 'black' in color [IE: jet-charcoal black], rather most are some shade of brown ranging from tannish-brown to chocolate-brown. Relatively few Africans' skin color actually approach jet-black [just as few 'white' people are actually 'snow-white' in color].
2nd} Ancient Egypt's / KHemet's 1st dynasty kings, starting w the founder of the 1st dynasty Narmer / Menes, came from Upper Egypt = Southern Egypt = NUBIA!
3rd} The ancient Egyptians left more than enough artifacts depicting themselves, & few look if any like most modern 'typical' Egyptian-Arabs- excluding the Nubian-Egyptians, whose cultural traditions & traditional language are reportedly being suppressed!
4th} Egypt & other lands have been conquered by NON-African peoples beginning w Alexander the Greek, who indeed then set himself up as King of Egypt & built Alexandria as his Egyptian capital & name-sake, thus establishing the Alexandrian / Ptolemaic Dynasty in Egypt circa 332 BCE [that's when they changed the name of KHemet to 'Egypt' {a Greek word} & the Piaron to 'Nile' {also a Greek word]- which lasted to circa 44 BCE w the demise of Cleopatra linked to the rise of the Roman Caesars / Emperors.
- At that point the Romans took over, prefaced by their ultimately crushing & destroying the N.African city-state of Carthage in the 3rd Punic War [circa 159 BCE]- which Rome's domination of Egypt lasting until circa 400 - 475 ACE.
- Then the next main power to dominate Egypt after the fall of Rome was the Ottoman Turk empire starting circa 1300ACE at the end of the Christian 'Crusaders' series of invasions [aka 'Crusades'] into Afro-Asiatic lands [IE: the Holy-Land]- which like the Roman empire before it the Ottoman Turk Empire stretched across most of the North African Mediterranean coastal regions, BUT unlike the Romans, it also included much / most of Arabia including Mecca & Medina. The Ottoman Turk Empire had Islam as its official religion, using Arabic & Turk as its official languages. Its domination of Egypt & much of North Africa lasted till 1922- [IE: it ended less than 100 yrs ago].
FYI: Turkey was originally the main region where the term 'Mid-East' initially referred to, till they just kept expanding it- Till now it includes everywhere from Iran to nearly all of Saharan North Africa!!!!
Thus we see there's been at-least 1750 Yrs to up-to 2300 Yrs of NON-African conquers dominating originally AFRICAN ancient Egypt!! IMO that's enough time to 'change the face' of almost any place!!! Compare that to the fact that 'the face' of America was totally changed, from that of its original peoples, in less than 300 - 400 Yrs!!!

That's all you've got??? Your 'secular minister' Raphael Lataster dismisses near contemporary NON-Biblical evidence for Yeshua's existence by both Josephus [a Judean] & Tacitus [a Roman Historian], cause they either wrote [Josephus] &/or were born [Tacitus] a few decades after Yeshua's execution [Note: Josephus was actually born in Jerusalem around the same time that Yeshua was executed- IE: a near contemporary, who Like Yeshua {& Yokhanon / 'John' the Baptist too} also had actual close family ties to the Levitical Priesthood].
- Yet your secular 'prophet' Darwin wrote about the 'theorized' event of apes 'evolving' into people MILLIONS of YRS after such a 'THEORIZED' event 'theoretically' [in Darwin's 'vivid imagination'] occurred, Yet you accept it without question- Humm... That's some kind of [dubious] 'Belief'!!!
But your 'atheist minister' Lataster said exactly ZILCH / Absolute ZERO about the 'hard' written-archeological evidence in the Dead Sea Scrolls, NOR the 'solid' Archeological & written evidence of the 'Lost Tomb of Yeshua [aka 'Jesus']'. In other-words Lataster just regurgitated the same-ole TRITE & STALE atheistic meme re Yeshua's 'alleged' non-existence, which only convinces dogmatically hard-core Atheists!!!
PS: What you & your 'atheistic minister' Lataster are unreasonably demanding is a contemporary BIOGRAPHER of / STENOGRAPHER to Yeshua, who also was NOT one of his followers- NOT actual historical NON-Biblical evidence of/for Yeshua's existence- A 'bridge' that you, Lataster [& Coyne] & your ilk are sure is just 'too far' & can NEVER be crossed!!

FYI: Biblical King Hezekiah's Royal-Seal just found in Jerusalem. From 'Science Daily': } Impression of King Hezekiah's royal seal discovered in excavations in Jerusalem - First seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king ever exposed in situ in a scientific archaeological excavation
Date: Dec 2, 2015, Source: The Hebrew University of Jerusalem - Summary: Excavations by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at near the southern wall of the Temple Mount have unearthed an impression of the royal seal of [Biblical] King Hezekiah (727-698 BCE). This is the first seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king to come to light in a scientific archaeological excavation. It brings to LIFE the BIBLICAL Narratives about Hezekiah and activity in Jerusalem's Royal Quarter in the First Temple Period.
- The Ophel excavations at the foot of the southern wall of the Temple Mount, conducted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Institute of Archaeology under the direction of Dr. Eilat Mazar, have unearthed an impression of the royal seal of [Biblical] King Hezekiah (727-698 BCE)...
- The impression bears an inscription in ancient Hebrew script: "Belonging to Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz king of Judah," and a two-winged sun, with wings turned downward, flanked by two ankh symbols symbolizing life... { See @
Again from 'Science Daily':} [BIBLICAL] King David's palace? New archaeological evidence uncovered in Judean Shephelah
Date: July 21, 2013, Source: Israel Antiquities Authority - Summary: Archaeologists have uncovered what they believe may be [legendary Biblical] King David's Palace in the Judean Shephelah. Royal storerooms were also revealed in the joint archaeological excavation of the Hebrew University and the Israel Antiquities Authority at Khirbet Qeiyafa. These are the two largest buildings known to have existed in the tenth century BCE in the Kingdom of Judah...
- One of the buildings is identified by the researchers, Professor Yossi Garfinkel of the Hebrew University and Saar Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority, as David's palace, and the other structure served as an enormous royal storeroom...
- The palace and storerooms are evidence of state sponsored construction and an administrative organization during King David's reign. "This is unequivocal evidence of a/the [Davidic] kingdom's existence, which knew to establish administrative centers at strategic points," the archaeologists say... { See @
PS-FYI: The tombs of Yeshua ben Yosafe's [aka 'Jesus'] & Simeon bar Yonah [aka 'St Peter'] have also been unearthed in Jerusalem, some yrs ago.
That's the problem w you & your ilk, in your desperate attempt to debunk the [entire] Bible, you nearly always over-play your hand / over-state your case!
