Why Liberals Love War, Too The latest example of the liberal herd mentality comes in the form of love for the military. Liberals don't associate with this institution themselves. They wouldn't think of sending their kids to the army or the navy. But suddenly they have a love for senior officers if they voice disgust with Trump.

American Terror Is Not New We always lived in a very dangerous nation. Trump makes it more difficult to be in denial. But we must fight against the crowd which averts its eyes until a racist buffoon enters the White House. There is nothing new about American terrorism. It can be found in high and low places regardless of presidential civility or lack thereof.

How to Remember Lynching Every visitor moved by the history displayed in the new Montgomery memorial should fight for an end to the system which gives us a violent police state. Any black person can be killed by police or caught up in the prison gulag. That means lynch law still lives.

King's Legacy Betrayed The legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated 50 years ago today, has been cynically exploited by corporate and political leaders who care more for the needs of their rich donors than black constituents, comments Margaret Kimberley.

Robert Mercer Rules The corporate media have said far too little about Mercer's influence, preferring to create elaborate scenarios of Russian government interference. The Mercer story is a secret hiding in plain sight. It is the stuff of spy thrillers but it is all too real. An ultra-rich right winger put Trump in the White House and now controls the country's political agenda.

Freedom Rider: Oligarch Jeff Bezos Bezos may look like the villain in a James Bond movie but there is nothing funny about him. He is deadly serious and so are his intentions. In a Bezos-run world every worker will be impoverished, every level of government will subsidize corporations, and anyone who speaks out will be discredited and under surveillance.

Freedom Rider: Trump Love Endures The panoply of republican orthodoxy was always meant to convey the goal of keeping white people on top and black people under foot. The book Fire and Fury won't sink Donald Trump. Neither will revelations that would damage others. The very thing that makes him so repugnant to half of the country gives him an appeal with the other half. That is the fire and fury that everyone must acknowledge.

It's All About Africom Almost no one is asking about the fact that American troops are stationed in Africa at all. Few people realize that such a thing as the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) exists and that the military forces of most African nations have been under the de facto control of this country since the George W. Bush administration.

Killing Kaepernick's Movement Kaepernick made police brutality his target. No one should claim to join with him unless they are completely onboard with that sentiment. Stand or kneel with Kaepernick against the police state or don't bother at all.
ESPN's Jemele Hill Calls Trump A White Supremacist, From YouTubeVideos

Is Trump a White Supremacist? Yes, But So is America It is an error to be swept up in useless argument about whether the current president is a white supremacist without also discussing the racist underpinnings of American society. Trump made overt racism acceptable and that does change the precarious nature of black life in the country. But we always live on the edge, hoping to improve our lot as individuals without falling victim to the worst the system can mete out to us.

Freedom Rider: Joe Arpaio Is No Aberration Arpaio is surely deserving of scorn heaped upon him. He referred to his jails as "concentration camps." He held prisoners outdoors in tents, a violation of national and international law. Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court because he continued to detain undocumented people without charge in violation of a judge's order.

Freedom Rider: Is Trump the DNC Hacker? If the Democrats are intent on living at the Vast Conspiracy Hotel, they ought to widen their list of suspects in the leaking of embarrassing Democratic documents. Roger Stone and Nigel Farage -- men much closer to Donald Trump's brand of politics than Vladimir Putin -- have had curious contacts with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Stone is "the champion Republican Party dirty trickster," while Farange, the British rightwing

Freedom Rider: The Corporate Media Enemy Do the media report on the inhumanity of mass incarceration? Do they tell their viewers and readers that half of all Americans live on $31,000 per year or less? Do they reveal the devastation created by American regime change or give voice to its victims? They do none of these things. The media are in bed with the rulers and that makes them enemies of the first order.

Obama's Propaganda Gift to Trump The head of this Global Engagement Center will be appointed by the president and that means Donald Trump. On the one hand we are told that Trump's presence in the White House is a fundamental danger to democracy. But in true presidential fashion Obama has handed off to Trump what he thinks is most important to continue.

Black Fear of Trump The desire for self-determination brought people out of slavery and out of Jim Crow segregation. It can certainly save us from the alt-right, Donald Trump and an attorney general named Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. We survived the Confederates and we can survive anyone named after them. That will mean shaking off fear, the Democrats, and the black misleaders all at once.

Freedom Rider: How Not to Protest Trump The awful Hillary Clinton should be inaugurated the 45th president of the United States because she won the popular vote. But for the second time in less than 20 years a Democrat preferred by the people will instead be an historical footnote. If nothing else the Electoral College is rightly condemned.

Obama's Hollow Legacy The most obvious example of Obama's lack of substance was his relationship with black Americans. His disdain and contempt for the people who loved him the most was clear to anyone who paid attention. Jokes about "cousin Pookie" and parents serving fried chicken for breakfast should have been seen as the racist screeds they clearly were. But the desire to see a black face in a prominent place endures to our detriment.

Standing by Syria Obama didn't start a proxy war with an expectation of losing, and Hillary Clinton makes clear her allegiance to regime change. The United States will only leave if Syria and its allies gain enough ground to force a retreat. They will call defeat something else at a negotiating table but Assad must win in order for justice and reconciliation to begin.

Hillary and Colin: the War Criminal Charade The gangsterish "no honor among war criminals" back stabbing shouldn't make anyone feel badly for Powell. As secretary of state in the George W. Bush administration Powell kidnapped Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide and sent him into exile. Colin Powell made the most important public case for invading Iraq and the subsequent killing of one million people.
