"Still, Bernie Sanders, and Sanders supporters and surrogates, should use the Politico story to draw a line, making clear that they will withdraw their support of Clinton if Clinton accepts Kissinger’s endorsement. If Sanders stands for anything, it is the promise of decency and civil equality, qualities that he has worked hard to bestow on Clinton since the Democratic National Convention. By accepting Kissinger’s endorsement, Clinton wouldn’t just be mocking that gift. She’d be sending the clearest signal yet to grassroots peace and social-justice Democrats that her presidency wouldn’t be a “popular front” against Trumpian fascism. It would be bloody business as usual."

Oh, really now! Where was the media when #BernieSanders  turned his attention to his foreign policy ideas? They mocked him! Now they want him to influence Clinton?

That train has long left thestation.

EXCERPT:

"Government counter-tactics would be genius were they not so insidious.

The government sends its agents in — usually, people from our own demographics — posing as folks down for the cause, folks who don’t mind selling their own people down the river for the right price (sometimes, that price is monetary; other times it’s psychological — you’d be shocked at how valuable some people regard a head-pat from Massa to be), folks who can blend in.

And what those people do is agitate, stir trouble, cause chaos, and incite violence with the expressed purpose of defaming any movement and/or protest, and delegitimize the redress of grievance."

Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike get support. Advocates of human rights are showing support for the hundreds of Palestinian dissidents being held in Israeli prisons who have been denied their rights under the International Rule of Law. Supporters are posting videos and photos showing solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners who are being compared to the political dissidents who were brutalized by the Soviets in their prison Gulag system. Activists have launched the Prisoner of the Day campaign where supporters agree to fast and refrain from eating and drinking for 24-hours, and then posting information about their support on the campaign’s Facebook Page.

Queen Sugar is an astute meditation on the black humanity Hollywood is stubbornly unwilling to render. But this treatise on behalf of Blackness is not new for Ava DuVernay.

Operating from a place of love for her people, and a desire to tell the exquisite, funky truth about us, the dimensions captured by her lens are inevitable. From the way she frames her subjects (off center, giving them room to imagine) to how patiently the camera lingers on them, the viewer is confronted by an unshakeable, but long-denied reality in which black people are merely people.

Y'all worried about transgender women in restrooms when you should really be worried about cishet male pastors in pulpits.

While some of y'all were disrespecting the humanity of trans women and men, outraged that they wanted to be treated as full human beings, claiming that you were afraid of them, that they were a danger to you and your children and that's why they should be allowed into the same restroom as you...

You were facing the wrong way, pointing your finger in the wrong direction, and casting aspersions at the wrong people.

Had you been facing the right direction, the direction where the true danger rests: the pulpit; had you looked amongst your own ranks, at your transantagonistic co-conspirators, toward the people with whom you joined hands, hearts, and minds in the quest to deny the dignity and eliminate the existence of transgender people, perhaps... more »

Had you been facing the right direction, the direction where the true danger rests: the pulpit; had you looked amongst your own ranks, at your transantagonistic co-conspirators, toward the people with whom you joined hands, hearts, and minds in the quest to deny the dignity and eliminate the existence of transgender people, perhaps you might have been able to save the children you claim to be so worried about from the clutches of the real rapist.

Oh, I know how you're going to respond to this, because you're as predictable as white supremacists in this regard:

"NOT MY PASTOR! THEM VICTIMS IS LYING FOR THE MONEY AND THE FAME! WHY THEY WAIT SO LONG TO COME FORWARD? THIS AIN'T NOTHING BUT THE DEVIL AND WHITE JESUS IS GONNA SEE HIM THROUGH! HALLELUJAH! NO WEEEAAAAPOOONNN FORMMMMMEEDDDD AAAAAAAAAAGAIINNNNNNNNNNNSTTT MMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEE SHAAAAAALLLLLLL PROOOOSPPPPEEERRRRRRR!!!!! DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE!"

Okay, then.

If you are the earthly representatives of Christ, then your Christ must be a nightmare.

Continue to fall for the okey doke because that's what sheep do.
Too bad your children will pay a grand price for your profound ignorance.

But by all means: Carry on.

This article contains descriptions of child abuse and child molestation. Discretion is advised.




















*
"Controversial pastor Ken Adkins has been charged with two counts of child molestation in Georgia and is in the Glynn County jail, officials said.

One of the two charges against the 56-year-old is aggravated child molestation, said Stacy Carson, special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Kingsland office.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson asked the GBI on Aug. 12 to assist the Brunswick Police Department in an investigation of an accusation of child molestation against Adkins, Carson said. The investigation focused on suspected molestation in several locations in the Brunswick area including at Adkins’ church, a vehicle and a victim’s home, Carson said. The investigation is ongoing.

Lawyer Kevin Gough told the Times-Union he is representing Adkins and believes the accusations are said to have occurred in 2010. He said Adkins had willingly turned himself in."

American Muslims victimized long before Trump. Muslims have a right to question Donald Trump’s intentions if he becomes president of the United States. But they really don’t have to ask many questions to recognize that despite her words, Hillary Clinton will do little to change anti-Muslim bigotry that continues to plague the United States. http://thearabdailynews.com/2016/08/24/american-muslims-victimized-long-trump/

Neil Irwin writes about #Fed Chair Yellen not yet having found a framework. Well, rates still shouldn't be raised because the official #unemployment  rate of 5% isn't the real unemployment rate, which is closer to 12%. There are, of course, other factors at play.

US Arab Radio celebrates its 11th Year as one of the only daily radio program addressing American Arab and Muslim issues. The need to expand and support our American Arab and Muslim media is critical to our community’s effectiveness in this country. Only a few media — the Arab American News and US Arab Radio, both in Detroit — have risen to the level of true professionalism, although many continue to struggle. Here’s a look at one of them

#Tyrant #Racism The FX Series Tyrant which features many Arab actors and actresses is the most racist and viciously anti-Arab series on Television. The series, which is in its second season, is the work of an anti-Arab hater and Israeli producer Howard Gordon and writer Gideon Raff. The show was rumored to have been cancelled after last season’s miserable ratings and criticism of its racist stereotypes of Arabs and Muslims, but it was brought back maybe just as a gesture by Gordon and Raff to tell Arabs and Muslims to go f— themselves. http://thearabdailynews.com/2016/08/11/tyrant-racist-program-tv/

“For Black girls who ain’t carefree.

Who got a chip on they shoulder. Who aren’t friendly.

Who still sound like the block they from. Whose power is overwhelming.

Who are called intimidating before they even have spoken. Who say ‘fuck these n*gg*s’ and mean it every time.

Who need validation. Whose sadness is inconvenient.

Whose depression goes unrecognized. Whose anxiety is mistaken for dramatic behavior.

Who give until they run out cause they grandma did. Who don’t trust nobody because they mam didn’t.

Who do it themselves every time.

I see y’all.

"Still, Bernie Sanders, and Sanders supporters and surrogates, should use the Politico story to draw a line, making clear that they will withdraw their support of Clinton if Clinton accepts Kissinger’s endorsement. If Sanders stands for anything, it is the promise of decency and civil equality, qualities that he has worked hard to bestow on Clinton since the Democratic National Convention. By accepting Kissinger’s endorsement, Clinton wouldn’t just be mocking that gift. She’d be sending the clearest signal yet to grassroots peace and social-justice Democrats that her presidency wouldn’t be a “popular front” against Trumpian fascism. It would be bloody business as usual."

Oh, really now! Where was the media when #BernieSanders  turned his attention to his foreign policy ideas? They mocked him! Now they want him to influence Clinton?

Krugman puts cart before horse and counts eggs before they're hatched. What Hillary will be able to do and whether she can do any more than President Obama has been able to do, will rest largely on voter participation. Rely on anti-Trump Republicans and we will get more divided government and obstruction.
