Collaborating With the U.S. Empire

Either we are going to get on the euphemistic plantation/reservation boxcars on their way to hell or we are going to derail the entire damn train, and fundamentally change this hypocritical, filthy, unjust and corrupt U.S. political system. We can’t have it both ways simultaneously. Continue reading

The ‘Perfect Storm’ is upon us, what shall we do?

Here we are in the latter part of the year 2012, and the fruit of this nation—its people—are in a state of manipulated confusion and systemically contrived despair. This precious planet of Mother Earth, and its many people, are teetering on the brink of annihilation. Humankind’s many, have been horribly betrayed, by its avaricious few. Continue reading

In tribute to Russell Means whose spirit shall never die!

It is through boundless tears of enormous sorrow and simultaneously, with a renewed sense of determination that my column is written today. My sisters and brothers, another people’s warrior has transitioned on to be nestled by the spirit of our precious Mother Earth in her strong, gentle and welcoming bosom. Continue reading

What do ‘elections’ really mean in the United States?

Voting in general—and in particular, voting for the Democrats and Republicans, especially on the federal level—in this corporate-controlled, Patriot Act, NDAA, ‘Kill List,’ de facto police- state, is akin to choosing how one wants to die; when in fact, we should be demanding systemic change and deciding how we want to live! Continue reading

Will ‘America’ ever change its ways?

Will the United States ever genuinely change its bloody and hypocritical ways at home and abroad? Continue reading

The treacherous trick-bag and big lie of the Democrats and Republicans

Perhaps the biggest single lie perpetrated upon everyday ordinary people of all colors in the United States is that the corporate owned, symbiotically-joined, Democrat and Republican parties genuinely represent them, their needs, interests, hopes, and aspirations. Continue reading

The U.S. corporate media’s conspiracy of silence

The late South African political activist Steve Biko correctly said that, “The greatest weapon in the hand of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” The 21st century U.S. corporate-stream media has irrefutably proven this to be accurate. This media is both the bane and the deadly novocaine of the masses of everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in this nation and worldwide. Continue reading

The NDAA and Obama’s secret ‘Kill List’—are you on it?

The corporate owned government of the United States, now headed by President Barack Obama, has under the rubric of waging a so-called war against ‘terrorism,’ launched a perpetual terrorist war against the liberties and human rights of everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in this nation and around the world. The U.S. police state is no longer merely coming, it has arrived. Continue reading

What does being a Black ‘American’ really mean?

What does being a Black ‘American’ really mean? More to the point, what does it mean today in terms of political consciousness, and most especially black revolutionary political consciousness? A “reexamination” of where Black America collectively stands today in this regard is very much in order. Continue reading

Obama’s disastrous domestic and foreign policies and those who shield them

Apparently the current hypocritical and utterly absurd rallying cry from two so-called ‘leftists’ and/or ‘progressives,’ including Carl Davidson (an author and Co-Chair of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism), et al, is that “The 2012 elections have little to do with Obama’s record . . .” which is, further in their words, “why” they “are voting for him.” What unmitigated horse manure! Taking such a position is precisely the sort of nonsensical gibberish that can be expected from systemic gatekeepers and de facto regressives. It is insulting and insane. Continue reading

Obamatrons, Romneyites and the escalating descent into insanity

In reality, the United States is a one party corporatist political state. This political system is utterly corrupt, amoral, and illegitimate. Nothing, absolutely nothing, has recently so blatantly exemplified this more profoundly than the scripted mockery of democracy embodied by the charade of both the Democrat and Republican 2012 national conventions. Continue reading

Betrayal and the insidious dumbing-down of Black America

Ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow women and men in this nation, and throughout Mother Earth, have been systematically and systemically horribly betrayed by a cynical, callous, selfish, and blood sucking group of persons who place prestige, wealth, and personal power above the collective needs and human rights of everyday people. Continue reading

The Republicrat political circus: Distractions, lies, war and austerity

The Democrats and the Republicans (i.e. the Republicrats) are once again ratcheting up to a fever pitch, in this phony, four year cycle, yet another corporate-stream media feeding frenzy, known as ‘elections’ in the United States. This pathetic state of affairs continues to be the bane of everyday ordinary people in this nation and the ultimate mockery of democracy in the 21st century. Continue reading

Wars, disinformation, and COINTELPRO in the year 2012

As bloody U.S. wars and/or militarization, driven by the insatiable greed of the corporate/military elite, rage on in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the ‘Middle East,’ Africa, and elsewhere on this precious planet of Mother Earth, here at home, police-state stealth, government disinformation, de facto political suppression, corporate-media malfeasance, and increasing economic austerity represent the unhappy realities being endured by the vast majority of everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people inside this nation. Continue reading

Acquiescence, a recipe for disaster

The lies, subterfuge, deliberately perpetuated ignorance, joblessness, under-employment, homelessness, corporate domination, and perpetual wars being consistently waged by the corporate-owned Democrat and Republican parties against the everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of the United States, and throughout Mother Earth, is both untenable and utterly unacceptable. Continue reading

The Nobel ‘Peace’ Prize, Obama’s killing fields, and the massacre in Aurora

How bitterly ironic that this nation found itself turning to Barack Obama—the war mongering predator drone missile, ‘kill list’ U.S. president—for comfort and condolences, in the wake of the horrible killings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Continue reading

The tragic betrayal by Black America’s Intelligentsia

The unthinkable and tragic betrayal by much of Black America’s intelligentsia in their blind support for the war mongering Barack Obama in this 21st century, will forever be the historical measuring rod of indictment, in the words of Malcolm X (el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz), which defines “those who want[ed] freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want[ed] to continue the system of exploitation.” There is not, nor was there ever, any in-between in this matter. Continue reading

Subterfuge—the ‘American Way’

Subterfuge, which is the strategy of deception and deceit, is now the very basis of and for the policies and practices of the corporate-owned U.S. crime syndicate, known as this nation’s government. Nothing, absolutely nothing, that this government and its servile puppet—the corporate-stream ‘news’ media disseminates—can or should be wholly believed. Continue reading

The vicious walking U.S. zombie

It is not Africa, Asia, or Europe that have died in the 21st century. It is the Empire of the United States that is dying and decaying. Continue reading

Corporate brand Obama—the ‘kill list’ assassin

The truth is that at this moment in this the 21st century, the vast majority of everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in the United States are de facto slaves. That’s right—slaves. Continue reading

A revolutionary message to our younger sisters and brothers

You are Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow. You are female and male. Most of all however, are in your late teens, your twenties, or your thirties; and you yearn for a nation and a world that is based firmly upon a genuine and active respect for economic, political, and social fair-play and human rights throughout Mother Earth. And even though you face the arrogance, cynicism, stealth, wrath, and brutality of an entrenched and greedy self-legitimized corporate syndicate known as ‘the United States government,’ you know in your hearts and minds that if you do not act and stand firm, the peoples of this nation and of this entire precious planet will be doomed. You are our younger sisters and brothers of the 21st century—and you are strong, determined, and beautiful. Continue reading

The terrorist government of the United States

Everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of the United States are living under the yoke of a self-legitimized organized corporate/military crime syndicate known as the government. Continue reading

There is no in-between: Stand with the people or with the oppressors

The women and men of this nation and throughout Mother Earth are engaged, like it or not, in a life and death struggle against a relatively tiny but powerful elite whose objective is to keep us perpetually in economic and political servitude. In this struggle, there can be “no impartial observers” for the “battlefront” truly is “everywhere.” Continue reading

Barack Obama: The more insidious evil

To be sure, meither the corporate owned Democrat or the corporate owned Republican parties are viable choices for the struggling everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of this nation. In fact, these corporate owned parties are the antithesis to the needs and hopes of ordinary people in this nation, and throughout Mother Earth. Continue reading

The politics of cynicism in the United States

Have you ever wondered from where the fallacious notion of the-lesser-of-the evils derives? Indeed, why must a political system be rooted in evil at all, whether that evil be perceived as more evil or less evil? Continue reading

Systemic politics: Donkey dung and elephant manure

As the U.S. Empire unravels, its viciousness at home and abroad will increase expedientially. Systemic contradictions and the concomitant sham of ‘democracy’ as embodied by the corporate owned Democratic and Republican parties will become ever more obvious. Continue reading

In a global economic system that is ‘too big to fail,’ does Greece really matter?

As everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in the United States are painfully beginning to realize, no entity, no bank, and no nation that is tied in to this global economy, based upon systemic fraud and concomitant greed, is too big to fail. Indeed, to the contrary, failure is ultimately inevitable. But the brunt of such ‘failures’ are borne on the backs of ordinary everyday men, women, and children, be it in this nation or elsewhere. Continue reading

On the insanity of ‘an eye for an eye’ and those who glorify it

Recently, Mr. ‘Hope And Change’ Barack Obama (also known as the predator-drone-missile president), officially launched his corporate reelection campaign by shamelessly touting his role in the extra-judicial, U.S. government’s official version, of the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. Continue reading

The terror of a subverted ‘democracy’

The United States corporate government today has become what Frantz Fanon, over five decades earlier, accurately described, as a “monster,” permeated with “taints, sickness, and inhumanity.” Its’ much touted ‘democracy’ is in reality the very height of hypocrisy both inside this nation and abroad. Continue reading

Stuck on stupid supporting Democrats and Republicans

“Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity . . . They realize at last that change does not mean reform, that change does not mean improvement.”—Frantz Fanon Albert Einstein correctly noted that theRead the Rest…

The election ‘con’ and Angela Davis: Ignoring history and losing their minds

History is both a guide into the past and an important unfinished road map for the present and future. Continue reading

Free Your MINDS and Change the SYSTEM

The single most potent and insidious weapon consistently used against everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in the United States today, continues to be the perfidious propaganda and concomitant distractions emanating from the corporate government and its corporate-stream media. The words of the late South African freedom fighter Steve Biko are more relevant now than ever before: “The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” Continue reading
