The weakness of the Left In the United States is so extreme that the ruling class has to invent a "menace" to the prevailing oligarchic order: the Russians, whose phantom agents are said to wage a twilight struggle to undermine public faith in U.S. institutions.

Obama-Time is over; the spell is broken. Donald Trump is the sum of all Black fears and loathings, an arch racist who is perceived as rendering the entire planet unsafe for people of color. Blacks are primed to oppose all of his policies, foreign and domestic. Black people are the only U.S. group that shares the general global distrust of U.S. foreign policy motives.

Democratic Party "resistance" to Donald Trump is a sham that has succeeded only in increasing the likelihood of nuclear war and the certainty of massive impoverishment.

Saturday, July 22, 2017 Black Women in the Killing Fields
A white woman from Australia was gunned down by militarized police in Minneapolis -- part of the collateral damage that flows from the U.S. mass Black incarceration regime. The intended targets are Black women like Charleena Lyles, killed by Seattle cops, last month. "Although Black women and girls make up only 13 percent of the U.S. female population, they account for 33 percent of all women killed by police."

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford
"War is not a side issue in the United States; it is the central political issue, on which all the others turn." Some think Bernie Sanders should run with the Peoples Party. But, "Sanders is a warmonger, not merely by association, but by virtue of his own positions."

Not one Black member of Congress seems prepared to challenge the fraudulent U.S. pretext for bombing Syria -- or the war, itself. Maxine Waters is the saddest case.
