We are the “greatest country in the world” but we can’t provide healthcare or jobs to our citizens? We have the ability to clothe, house and feed every human but we don’t? Why not?

Kerry knew that George Bush and the Republican Party stole the 2004 election from him in Ohio after his voters reported that their votes appeared as Bush votes even though they pulled the lever for Kerry, and after people in majority Democratic districts stood in long lines in thunderstorms and torrential rain waiting to vote (or went home) while majority district Republicans voted easily.
The American TFP describes its three values – tradition, family and property – as a protective wall against socialism and called the Amazon “a huge ‘green slum’ divided into tribal ghettos.”
The UN troops in DRC are called “peacekeepers,” but MONUSCO’s real mission is managing the “silent violence” in which perpetrators cannot be readily identified, atrocities go unreported, and resources are smuggled out of DRC through Rwanda and Uganda.
“There’s been killed 8 million people and you say you’re making fictitious peace and you’re telling us that this is peace when aggressors are not named!” – Congolese Swiss historian Bénédicte Kumbi Njoko
Victoire Ingabire “is a convicted criminal who was never rehabilitated. She is not a politician, an opposition leader, but a criminal.” – New Times of Rwanda, Paul Kagame’s newspaper
The final 2019 UN Group of Experts Report on the Democratic Republic of the Congo confirms that Congo’s eastern neighbor Rwanda remains a haven for smuggling Congolese minerals.
“Zelensky is desperate to end the war. His electoral landslide was the result of this promise, and his anti-corruption theme, which is related. His presidency – even his life – depends on it,” says Princeton and NYU Professor Emeritus Stephen F. Cohen. So why did Zelensky want another $400 million worth of military aid that could only escalate the war?
The powerful and wealthy nations who send foreign aid to Rwanda need to understand that they are supporting an unstable, unsustainable government because there is no space for people to speak freely and peacefully and engage in real democratic process in Rwanda. Shutting down political space risks the return of mass violence to Rwanda sooner or later. I have devoted my life to preventing its return.
Those sympathetic to the allegation that Trump is a stooge of the Kremlin claim that the Russians sought to use social media to alienate voters against Hillary Clinton. But with $1 billion at his disposal, why couldn’t Clinton’s campaign advisor figure out how to use Clinton’s social media to win votes for her.
WBAI, the listener-supported New York City radio station with a 60-year history of radical political dissidence, was seized on Oct. 7 by the interim executive director and a minority of the Pacifica National Board, which owns the five stations in the Pacifica Radio Network.
The Rescue Pacifica candidates for the KPFA Local Station Board believe that KPFA and its sister stations should uphold the values of democracy, transparency and community-based decision making. We oppose undemocratic power grabs, including the attempt to close WBAI.
Clinton won 65 percent, Bernie Sanders 35 percent in states with strictly electronic voting machines. In states with paper ballots, Clinton won 49 percent, Sanders 51 percent.
Asked how Kagame fits all the money gained by plundering Congo’s immense resources into his budget, David Himbara, a former member of Kagame’s cabinet, replied, “DR Congo money does not go into the Rwandan economy. The loot goes into offshore accounts of Crystal Ventures Ltd and its owner, Kagame.”
I want the government to show us who killed all these members of the opposition in Rwanda and what happened to those who have disappeared.
The Democratic National Press (DNP) had to find someone to blame besides the Democrats and their own thieving national committee, so we were subjected to the two-year, $30 million Russiagate investigation that finally ended with the grudging conclusion that there’s no evidence to indict Trump.
A giant has joined the ancestors. Black Agenda Report editor, lifelong organizer, and deep thinker Bruce Dixon made his transition on June 28, surrounded by his family in Atlanta, Georgia.
The fact that the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security were launching this manhunt for Julian Assange six weeks prior to the Swedish incidents completely reframes the context of the situation that Julian was in in 2010. And the idea that he was only wanted for any issue relating to Sweden is a complete fallacy. They were after him six weeks prior to the Swedish incidents.
Veterans for Peace has issued a press release in support of both Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and former U.S. army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, and East Bay Veterans for Peace, Chapter 162, want to talk to Congresswoman Barbara Lee about it. Opponents of U.S. wars have idealized Lee, California’s District 13 congresswoman, for her antiwar record.
