America is hooked on the drug of white supremacy.
Erika

"None of this makes sense. Unless, that is, we come to grips with the reality that we are seeing the effects
of far too many Americans strung out on the most pervasive,
devastating, reality-warping drug to ever hit the United States: white
supremacy.

"Like all forms
of substance abuse, it has destroyed families and communities and put
enormous strains on governmental institutions. It has made millions of
Americans forsake their God and jettison their patriotism just to get a
taste.

"High on its effects, its users feel powerful, heady, even
as they and everything around them disintegrates. And, as with most
drug crises, while not everyone may be strung out, everyone is very
surely affected."

 Two of the U.S. government's supposed allies are supposedly not allies
of each other but enemies of each other, but, away from the glare of the
'news'media. These two secret allies of each other, who largely
determine U.S. foreign policies, are the Saud family, and the government
of Israel.

Outsourcing the War in Afghanistan Is an Awful Idea

Outsourcing the War in Afghanistan Is an Awful Idea

 There are no good options on Afghanistan. Aggressively pursuing a peace
deal with the Taliban or simply playing for time are unappealing
options. As bad as this and other possible options are, however, one is
far worse: hiring mercenaries to do the job of U.S. troops.

PETER KOENIG: The condolences of these leaders sound hollow and so
hypocritical because they, the very leaders, are at the heart of the
problem. If not the direct instigators of this simply patterned string

The Magazine Covers Trump Earned This Week By Defending White Supremacy | Common Dreams

The Magazine Covers Trump Earned This Week By Defending White Supremacy | Common Dreams

Remember when President Donald Trump was famously called out earlier this summer when it emerged there were fake magazine covers featuring him posted at some of his private gold clubs?



Well, in the aftermath of his disastrous, "embarrassing," and infuriating defense of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia this week, covers from prominent weekly magazines—The Economist, The New Yorker, and TIME—hitting the shelves this weekend are probably ones the president won't ever think to brag about.



The New Yorker cover, illustrated by artist David Plunkert
and titled "Blowhard," shows Trump providing the wind for a sail shaped
like a Klu Klux Klan hood.

Bannon and the Fall of 'Populism'

Bannon and the Fall of 'Populism'

 

WASHINGTON — Is President Trump a populist or a corporatist?


Is he appealing to white supremacists as a form of political
opportunism—or because, deep down, he sympathizes with their views? Is
he the hard-core “fire and fury” hawk of his North Korea statements? Or
is he actually a non-interventionist who disdains foreign engagement?


The answer to all these questions is: Who knows? There is absolutely
no way of establishing what Trump believes. He says whatever he feels he
has to say at any given moment to get attention, strike back at foes or
advance his personal (especially economic) interests.

Trump Administration Demands Internet Records On 1.3 million Political Opponents - TruePublica

 

The search warrant, issued July
12, was directed at Los Angeles-based provider DreamHost, which hosts
DisruptJ20.org on its servers, allowing individuals to access and use
the site online. If the warrant is enforced, the activities of some 1.3
million visitors will be revealed to the government through the seizure
of their personal Internet records.


DreamHost is challenging the warrant in the Superior Court.
DreamHost’s general counsel, Chris Ghazarian, characterized the warrant
as “a sweeping request for every single file we have.” He added, “The
search warrant is not only dealing with everything in relation to the
website, but also tons of data about people who visited it.”


The company’s filing notes: “Scrutiny of this type demonstrates that
the warrant lacks the specificity required by the Fourth Amendment and
is unreasonable as a whole. In addition, the search warrant violates the
Privacy Protection Act and was not authorized by District of Columbia
law. For the foregoing reasons, DreamHost respectfully requests that the
government’s motion be denied.”

Under protection from Israeli forces, settlers take over Palestinian home in Hebron's Old City

 

In late July, dozens of Israeli settlers raided and occupied the Abu
Rajab family home in the Old City of Hebron near the Ibrahimi Mosque.
Since then they have slowly moved in
under the constant protection of armed Israeli soldiers. Abu Rajab
family members are now subjected to daily harassment from the settlers,
while soldiers control the family’s every move in and out of the parts
of the home where they have been able to remain.

 Politicians from Senators Marco Rubio and Orrin Hatch to Chuck Schumer

Unite the Right March in Charlottesville
and the vicious acts of terror it spawned. Yet, the same senators are
united by their ardent support for a racist regime that is no less
inspired by racial supremacy. By supporting the Israel Anti Boycott Act
all have placed protecting Israel and its racially discriminatory
policies above the rights of activists who are inspired by the same
commitment to justice as the demonstrators who opposed the open display
of racism and anti-Semitism in Charlottesville.

Roundup Lawsuit Cancer Claims

Roundup Lawsuit Cancer Claims

 

http://roundup.claim-review.com/ - ---Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's flagship herbicide Roundup and hundreds of other herbicides, has been found
in vaccines. Moms Across America received preliminary screening results
from Microbe Inotech Laboratories Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri, which
showed:

MMR II (Merk) vaccine had 2.671 parts per billion (ppb) of glyphosate
DTap Adacel (Sanofi Pasteur) vaccine had 0.123 ppb of glyphosate
Influenza Fluvirin (Novaris) 0.331 ppb of glyphosate
HepB Energix-B (Glaxo Smith Kline) 0.325 ppb of glyphosate
Pneumonoccal Vax Polyvalent Pneumovax 23 (Merk) had 0.107 ppb of glyphosate

The MMR II vaccine had levels up to 25 times higher than the other
vaccines. Following our test, additional independent tests have
confirmed these findings at or above the same levels. The tests were
conducted using the ELISA method.
Vaccines contain many ingredients
that could be genetically modified (GMO). More than 80 percent of GMOs
are genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate-based herbicides and
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows glyphosate on 160
non-organic food and feed crops. These facts made us wonder if
glyphosate could be contaminating not only our water, urine, breast
milk, food, soil, beer and wine, but also vaccines.

According to
MIT scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff, "Glyphosate could easily be present
in vaccines due to the fact that certain vaccine viruses including
measles in MMR and flu are grown on gelatin derived from the ligaments
of pigs fed heavy doses of glyphosate in their GMO feed. Gelatin comes
from collagen which has lots of glycine. Livestock feed is allowed to
have up to 400 PPM [parts per million] of glyphosate residues by the
EPA, thousands of times higher than has been shown to cause harm in
numerous studies."

French scientist and glyphosate expert
Gilles-Eric Séralini has shown in his research that glyphosate is never
used alone. It is always used with adjuvants (co-formulants/other
chemicals) and he has found those adjuvants to make Roundup 1,000 times
more toxic. The detection of glyphosate in vaccines with this
methodology would indicate the presence of other co-formulants which are
also toxic.

Erika

"Our goal was to help pull the community to respond to the larger, more capacious
threat of the “alt-right” and the white supremacists, neo-Nazis,
nationalists were representing and threatening to bring forward. I think
we were able to do that. We were able to bring together a variety of
people, and several groups issued individual calls. The clergy, for
example, had a really wonderful one calling on, in particular, white
people of faith, white ministers, white clergy to come and join in
taking a stand against not just explicit violent racism but also the
subtle institutional racism that their own institutions had created and
cultivated over time. It was I think a really powerful soul searching on
the part of the clergy, for example.


"Charlottesville BLM also issued a call where we invited people who
wanted to come and stand with us and to challenge white supremacy, as
well as some of the other issues that we are dealing with in our cities,
which include things like the disproportionate nature of stop and frisk
in Charlottesville where African Americans constitute about eighty
percent of the stops and frisks even though we comprise less than
nineteen percent of the community. It is not just the statues, but we
can see a very clear connection between symbolic racism and
institutional racism."
