Why Black People Fear Cops More Than ISIS

Why Black People Fear Cops More Than ISIS
- Somehow, now that the violence has visited Republican politicians we get strong denunciation of violence from Capitol Hill.
Why don't we hear such speeches when innocent Black people, like Tashii Farmer, are killed by police
Last week, Las Vegas Metropolitan police officer Kenneth Lopera was charged with involuntary manslaughter and oppression under the color of office, for the Mother’s Day chokehold killing of Farmer, 40, in Las Vegas. Farmer’s killing has drawn comparisons to the chokehold killing of Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York by still employed New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Daniel Pantaleo.
Officer Lopera was the second cop last week to be arrested for a chokehold death. In Texas, Sheriff Deputy Shauna Thompson and her husband Terry Thompson were charged in the May 31 death of John Hernandez. Why is it that politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, say little about the “rule of law” when it comes to punishing police who kill Black and Latino people? What message is this silence supposed to send to Black communities?

The lessons of history versus Trump's foreign policy

The lessons of history versus Trump's foreign policy
- After just a few months in office, the Trump administration’s relationships with the country’s closest allies are seriously strained, and our enemies can take heart that radical, alt-right views have now found a home in the Oval Office.
Going back to the end of World War II, leaders from the United States, Canada, and Europe toiled to build the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – NATO – into the strong, united pillar of defense for the free world it is today. As Joseph Stalin moved first to liberate the Nazi-occupied countries of Eastern Europe, then incorporate them into his newly-created Soviet empire, NATO rallied Western democracies in opposing his aggression. In the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had no kind words for NATO. He referred to it as “obsolete” and whined about the financial contributions of fellow members of the organization.

Victories against Trump are mounting. Here's how we deal the final blow

Victories against Trump are mounting. Here's how we deal the final blow
- In this moment, populist intervention is everything, not as hate and attack but as an expression of popular will and power. Or as love, since we defend what we love. It is an extraordinary moment, an all-hands-on-deck emergency in which new groups and coalitions are emerging along with unforeseen capacities in many people who didn’t previously think they were activists. It is saturated with possibility, as well as with danger.
Of course there are also people resident in the US who love the dismantling of healthcare, education, environmental protection, and the Bill of Rights, but they are an increasingly small minority. The most recent Gallup poll found nearly twice as many people – 60% disapprove of the president – than approve (36%).
The graph shows a growing chasm between the minority that approves and the rest of us, and nearly half the public likes the idea of impeachment. Republican approval of the direction the country is going fell an unprecedented 17% in a month, according to a new Gallup poll.


Mexican beer label shows Trump wearing swastika

Mexican beer label shows Trump wearing swastika
- Launched in May, the beer that misspells “amigo” to poke fun at a bad American pronunciation of the Spanish word for friend, surprised its creators. The original batch of 1,200 bottles and 400 liters on tap sold out in the very first week.
Trump has sparked outrage in Mexico with his campaign vow to build a wall along the southern U.S. border to keep out illegal immigrants and drugs, and to make Mexico pay for the construction. He also compared Mexican migrants to “rapists” and “criminals.” In response, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto compared Trump’s rhetoric to that of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
