18 April 2018. The Evil That Truly Rules in America Today

________________________

No, it doesn’t refer to abortion… nor to homosexuality… nor to “disobedient” women and kids… nor to “uppity niggers”… look at the following images to get an idea of the evil rotting our society…

America is evil not because of pornographers, abortion, “fags”, feminists, or “niggers”. It’s evil because of Donald Trump… Hillary Clinton… real-estate developers… “religious leaders” such as Franklin Graham and Joel Osteen… Wall Street sharks and speculators… cheapjack lawyers… NRA mouthpieces… vulture crapitalist cabals like Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital. That’s what’s evil and it makes abortion, pornography, and homosexuality look like very small change, indeed.

Note well that the Republican Party and Establishment Democrats both refuse to rein in this evil. BOTH. Both worship at the altar of Mammon. I can deal with secularists who do so… at least, they profane no religious faith. However, there’s a special cold spot in Hell for those “religious” phonies who defend the current evil and excuse it because the evil at least is against abortion and homosexuality. That’s perverse.

That’s what we’ve come to as a nation. That’s what all too many “Christians” defend. I observe that not only do they not intend to mend their ways, they intend to stay the course and keep on the path.

Woe to those who call good “evil” and evil “good”.

15 April 2018. Brother Ajamu Speaks…

________________________

What a joke. These three racist colonialist criminal states pretend to be the defenders of human life when their very existence has always depended on the systematic degradation of human life. We have one word for these hypocrites… Gaza.

******

The pending military intervention into Syria by the USA represents yet another case of unilateral illegality that continues the systematic assault on international law and morality that’s characterised US foreign policy since the collapse of the USSR in the early 1990s when the USA found itself without any countervailing global power. The result for the people of the world was unending military conflict, destabilisation, and the destruction of whole nations.

The Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr correctly identified exactly a year before his assassination that the USA is the greatest purveyor of violence on the planet. The 50th anniversary of his murder just passed on 4 April… five decades later, the USA continues to hold that distinctive position. This reality makes any declaration on the part of the USA that it alone has the responsibility to intervene on the side of human-rights protection an absurdity and an insult to the intelligence of the national and international communities.

Today, the people of the USA are supposed to believe the racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic Trump administration is supposedly so concerned about Arab life in Syria that it feels morally compelled to engage in direct military intervention. We in the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) don’t believe that position, based on the documented actions of this administration and all previous administrations. These régimes have demonstrated their utter contempt for the lives of non-Europeans in their quest to maintain their global dominance.

US support for the continued brutality of the apartheid state of Israel and its immoral justifications for Israeli crimes against humanity committed at the apartheid wall in Gaza reflect the bipartisan moral degeneracy of the ruling parties, media, and ruling oligarchy. Their lack of real concern for Palestinian life reveals not only their lack of morality but also the real imperialist interests that determine their opportunistic position on Syria. Just a few weeks after the massive marches to address US gun violence, the people of the USA are being asked to support the ultimate form of gun violence… war. For BAP, the only way the movement to oppose gun violence in the USA will have any moral credibility is if people link gun violence in the USA to militarism and war abroad.

BAP takes an unequivocal position against US intervention in Syria. We say the only institution with the right and power to protect the peace and resolve international conflict is the UN. We condemn all unilateral interventions by any state and assert that any state that violates the international norms that are committed to the maintenance of peace as established by the UN Charter is a rogue state that deserves international condemnation. We say if the USA is concerned about human rights, it should:

  • prosecute killer cops who savagely murdered Stephon Clark in Sacramento CA
  • investigate the approximately 1,000 killings each year at the hands of police in the USA
  • stop the mass transfer of children from juvenile courts to adult courts
  • stop the militarisation of domestic police forces
  • stop the raids of migrant communities
  • release political prisoners
  • cease collaboration with corporate media and private communication companies to censor and limit news content on the Internet

However, we know centring human rights has never been a commitment of the US state. That’s why BAP says if you want peace, you have to be willing to fight for it. This weekend, BAP is mobilizing with groups across the country to highlight our opposition to US warmongering, demanding an end to US lawlessness, calling for the closure of more than 800 US military bases around the world, and ending the war against the black and brown working-class and poor. We support self-determination for all oppressed peoples… domestically and internationally. Stop the ongoing agony in Syria. Demand the USA withdraw its forces from Syria and respect international law. Call for the USA to adhere to international human rights norms and cease its status as a rogue state.

14 April 2018. A Point to Ponder… “Conservative?” … “Liberal?” … They Use the SAME Methods

________________________

Ponder this…

Naturally, the common people don’t want war, neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That’s understood. You can always bring the people to the bidding of the leaders. That’s easy. All you have to do is to tell them that they’re under attack and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

Hermann Göring at the Nürnberg Trial of the Major War Criminals 1946

This is what both Trump and Clinton believe. Yes, both of them… they both love the system and don’t want any changes to it (except those fattening their personal bankrolls). You see, old Herman just spoke out what all crapitalists believe… the common folk are rabble… an inert mass for the “master race” to manipulate. We saw this in the recent “attack” on Syria. No one wanted it… not the right; not the left… but the “masters” decided for us. Well, I’d remind them that many of them CAN be voted out in November. Trust me, the people will unseat more than one of them.

14 April 2018. Full-Spectrum Opposition to Trumpkin/Clinton Aggression in Syria

________________________

The opposition to the Deep State aggression in Syria cuts across all ideological divides. People on the left hate it… people on the right hate it. Bernie is against it… Michael Savage is against it. Professor Cohen is against it… Patrick Buchanan is against it. In short, Donald Trump pulled off a perfect hat-trick… he united people who normally are at each others’ throats. No matter what the disagreement on other matters, most people are against further aggression and want it to end.

Trump is for aggression… Hillary is for aggression. Trump never had any intention of “draining the swamp”… he was a happy denizen of that swamp. Hillary never even lied about her allegiance to the swamp… she, like the Donald, was a happy pig in shit in the crapitalist wallow. Here’s the rub, though… many Trump supporters DID expect him to at least take some action about the corrupt system in place. He didn’t. Not only that, he made it clear that he favoured the swamp over the interests of ordinary folk. He forgot that the little people do have long memories… it’s why they rejected Hillary. They remembered her rapacious actions in the 90s. They’ll remember his fibs in November, I’ll wager.

In my own personal sphere, I know people who supported either Trump or Hillary. Well… they were all wrong. Both Trump and Hillary proved themselves to be haters of the interests of common folk. Neither one was any damned good. For the record, I voted for Dr Jill and Brother Ajamu… no, it wasn’t a “protest vote”… they were the best choice out there, and I stand by that decision. As for those who supported either Trump or Clinton… we should be charitable… they fell for the mainstream media lies (which bombarded them day and night… trust me, there’s not a tuppence of difference between CNN and Fox… both are propaganda outlets that would make Goebbels proud).

We have a royal mess to clean up. Note well that Paul Ryan abandoned the SS Trump. What does he know that we don’t?
