Congressional Black Caucus Continues Its Downward Spiral
Margaret Kimberley: The Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference returned with the usual corporate sponsorships and obedience to the democratic party oligarchy. Joe Biden received a warm welcome from a group which does little except live off of a progressive reputation which it has not deserved in a very long time. ... The Black political class is doing what it always does, serving as a prominent buffer class, and giving a pass to the democratic party. That is their most important function, not fighting for their constituents .. The game changers in politics always spring from mass movements... Visit Website ]

Biden Lies at the United Nations
Margaret Kimberley: U.S. presidents routinely violate international law and the United Nations Charter. Yet every year they appear before that body and proclaim American innocence. ... The world has changed but American administrations don’t. They continue behaving as if the U.S. is still the all-powerful hegemon that will always get what it wants. ... It does have the world’s reserve currency and the biggest military, but it can’t control the world without doing harm to itself and its allies. ... The United Nations is in serious need of reform. ... The 75-year history of allowing the permanent Security Council members to dictate to the rest of the world should change... Visit Website ]

Asylum, Migration and U.S. Foreign Policy
Margaret Kimberley: Immigration rules are often determined by U.S. foreign policy. Citizens of nations under U.S. attack, such as Venezuela, are made eligible for asylum. Haitians suffer under U.S. dictates but are deported and returned to the hell that Washington created. ... The topic of immigration is very complicated but serious issues can’t be addressed if one party is devoted to opposing migration as a fund raising and vote getting strategy. ... The duopoly can’t resolve immigration issues for the same reason they don’t resolve anything else. ... They serve the needs of the oligarchy... Visit Website ]

Decolonizing the Mind
Margaret Kimberley: The word decolonization should not be treated as trendy slang. It describes an important political and psychological process. Media and state attempts at indoctrination show just how important it is. ... It is vital to free ourselves from belief in the systems of white supremacy and imperialism that are inculcated in the educational system and are affirmed and amplified by the media and establishment opinion. ... The recent death of Queen Elizabeth II puts the need for political and psychological liberation in high relief. ...

Biden's MAGA Obsession Won't Help Democrats
Margaret Kimberley: Joe Biden has few presidential accomplishments because he acts on behalf of the oligarchy instead of the people. His solution to his political problem is to speak endlessly about Donald Trump and shout the word MAGA at every opportunity. ... The democrats may get lucky and keep control of congress after the midterm elections but it won’t be because Biden manages to say MAGA in every sentence. ...

Biden's Student Loan Scam
Margaret Kimberley: Capitalist rule dictates that millions of Americans live in debt peonage. It was inevitable that Biden's student loan debt relief would be a farcical half measure. ... Americans owe $1.7 trillion in student loan debt. ... There is no way for working people to secure the higher education they’re told they need without ruining themselves financially, and in so doing defeating the purpose of attending college. ... Of course college should be free and student loan debt should be forgiven. ... Biden promised well heeled democratic fundraisers that “nothing would fundamentally change.” ... Forgiving student loans or any of the other forms of debt peonage is the last thing that the U.S. oligarchy wants to see... Visit Website ]

Liberals Love Liz Cheney
Margret Kimberley: When liberals aren't rehabilitating war criminals like George W. Bush they fall in love with right wing republicans like Liz Cheney. They stand for nothing and fall for anything. They are traitors to the millions of people who want to see progressive change in this country. ... She is a conservative republican after all, voting with Trump 93% of the time, and she is her father’s daughter, declaring that water boarding is just fine and shouldn’t be considered torture ...

If Everyone Is King Then No One Is
Caitlin Johnstone: The concept of “wealth hoarding” has gained traction ... The so-called wealth hoarders are not amassing wealth at the expense of others out of neurosis, and the motives driving their behavior are perfectly rational. ... The ruling class continually extracts wealth from the public not so that they can become wealthier than they already are, but to keep the public from having that wealth ... they just understand that the wealthier everyone else gets, the less their own wealth matters. They’re not wealth-hoarding, they’re wealth-obstructing... Visit Website ]

The Human Species Is Acting Like A Self-Destructive Individual
Caitlin Johnstone: We are not behaving rationally. Instead, we rationalize, or have it rationalized for us. ... We’re on this path because of the profit motive, because of market forces, because of the kind of people that have been able to elevate themselves to positions of power at this point in spacetime. ... And in each case the solution is the same: the expansion of consciousness. ... as Anais Nin put it, “the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ...

Trump Derangement Syndrome Returns
Margaret Kimberley: Worse than the silly Trump inspired derangement is the way that those who call themselves left or progressive have chosen to defend federal law enforcement and bad legislation like the Espionage Act ... The Espionage Act is a relic from the earliest days of the cold war ... The FBI continues to use informants to entrap Black people in phony terror cases. ... The right to remain silent is one of the most important in American law and should be used a lot more often ... Trump should not live rent free in our collective consciousness any longer. ...

China Threatens The US Empire, Not The US Itself: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: If your government is showing a clear interest in the outcome of a foreign war, and your first response isn’t to do some rigorous and intellectually honest investigation as to whether your government played a role in starting that war, then there’s something wrong with your mind. ... I’ve found it’s a lot more helpful to just work to sow healthy ideas around so they can take root ... Things you can’t make money out of:...

Nancy Pelosi, White Supremacy, and China
Margaret Kimberley: White supremacist arrogance was the order of the day when Nancy Pelosi ignored a red line set by the Chinese government and visited Taiwan. The Speaker of the House showed stereotypical and racist attitudes towards that country and began a chain of events that won't go well for the U.S. ... Racism is the only explanation for treating Xi Jinping and other government officials as if they are dumb ... Neither Nancy Pelosi nor Joe Biden see the world through other nations’ eyes.

“Russian Propaganda” Just Means Disobedience
Caitlin Johnstone: that’s precisely the notion that has been drummed into western consciousness with ever-increasing fervor since 2016: that any dissent about US foreign policy is Russian propaganda ...

FBI Attack on the Uhuru Movement is a Warning
Margaret Kimberley: The FBI targeted the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) because it is a Black organization that has dared to confront and oppose U.S. imperialism. APSP is the first but they will not be the last. ... On July 29, 2022, the FBI raided the Uhuru House in St. Petersburg, Florida and the Uhuru Solidarity Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Glen Ford's Irreplaceable Journalism
