Wikileaks Exposes Democrats Corruption

I love Wikileaks. Everyone should. If it weren't for Wikileaks we wouldn't have seen the horrors of the American occupation in Iraq. On a less important note they provided proof that Henry Louis Gates is a complete suck-up who lies to maintain his position as the official go-to spokesnegro. But I digress.

Last week Wikileaks released a trove of 19,000 emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee (DNC). These emails proved that the democratic party is nothing but a marketing machine used to convey an appearance of diversity and inclusivity. It works alongside the republicans to do the bidding of the ruling classes and wins elections by convincing its constituencies that they will work in their interests. They seldom do but that is part of the confidence game.

In my Black Agenda Report column I dissect why there is a bizarre effort to blame Vladimir Putin for the hack. They are desperate to deflect attention from the fact that they raise funds only for presidential candidates and leave local races bereft of funds. Of course this helps republicans but that is part of the act. Democrats claim they can't do what their supporters want because the Koch brothers have taken over state legislatures.

Even though Hillary Clinton had huge advantages over Bernie Sanders they trolled his supporters, disparaged his religious beliefs, and colluded with corporate media. While democrats continue to claim that Donald Trump is a fascist they actually fit that description.

Watching the DNC Burn

I had the pleasure of appearing on the Delete Your Account podcast with Roqayah Chamseddine and her plucky sidekick (their words) Kumars Salehi. We talked about the dismal state of the democratic party, how leftists should go about replacing it and the Wikileaks revelations of corruption. You can hear a portion of our discussion here.

Many thanks to Roqayah and Kumars.

"African Americans Still Suffer Under Obama"

Did you know that Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei has a website? Well he does and I neglected to post this email interview I gave back in May. Here we are in July and the title wouldn't have changed at all.

The U.S. media gave little attention to the Frisco Five. They engaged in a hunger strike to protest police murder in San Francisco. I was asked to comment on this case. I was happy to do so.

When police committed yet another killing, San Francisco police chief Greg Suhr was forced to resign two weeks after the Frisco Five ended their protest. There are an average of three police killings every day in this country. If each one was protested with a hunger strike we would no longer have obesity in this country.

Stay Angry My Friends

I appeared on Doug Lain's Zero Squared podcast to discuss my recent column, Why We Need Black Anger. We spoke on July 17th, the day that Gavin Long killed three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was angry and rightly so. Those police are dead because we have no justice and therefore no peace. A good interview, if I do say so myself.

Gavin Long's Last Words

Gavin Long turned 29 years old on July 17, 2016. On that day he killed three policemen in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The choice of location was not coincidental. Alton Sterling lost his life at the hands of police in that city and the murder was seen on video.

There is no reason to wonder why Gavin Long acted as he did. He explained himself quite clearly in this video. I wrote about Long in my Black Agenda Report column. It is very simple. When there is no justice there is no peace either.

Presstv Interview on Baton Rouge, Louisiana Police Shootings

I was interviewed on Presstv last night. I was asked to speak about Obama's blather about being calm and not divisive or blah blah and then again blah. The country wouldn't be divided if he brought justice to victims of police murder.

Gavin Long's Last Twitter posts

Convos With Cosmo on Protesting, Oppression, and how to deal with Bullies

This is Gavin Long. He is the named suspect in today's shooting deaths of three Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officers. He is now dead too.

He has much in common with Micah Johnson, the man who killed five police in Dallas, Texas last week. The media keep saying his motive is unclear. I think it is pretty obvious if you listen to him.

Update: This particular youtube video is no longer available. But search youtube. It is still visible as of today, July 20, 2016.

Presstv Interview: Police Killings in America

I was interviewed on Presstv on July 6th. I discussed the killing of Alton Sterling. Later that night Philando Castille was also killed by police.

This was less than two weeks ago but it seems like forever. We heard about Castille the next day. Dallas police were shot. Since that time a terrorist attack in Nice and a coup attempt in Turkey have seized our attention.

I appeared on Presstv again today. I discussed the killings of three policeman in Baton Rouge this morning. The gunman, Gavin Long, was killed by police himself. Like Micah Johnson, the Dallas gunman, he was a black man who served in the military.

I'll post when I have the link.

Righteous Anger

I didn't want that photo of negroes praying over some cracker cop to be he last word on my blog. So here I am last Saturday, July 9th. I was speaking at the rally No to NATO, No to War in New York City. Watch the youtube video. I start at about 11:55.

Stay Angry My Friends

Dear black people,

Please. Make. It. Stop. I guess no one in this group ever read Black Agenda Report. If they did they would know that their anger is vital to their survival. That is what I wrote this week. Why We Need Black Anger.

CPR News Interview: Why We Need Black Anger

In today's CPR News interview with Don DeBar I discussed my latest Black Agenda Report column. I wrote Why We Need Black Anger because of the inevitable demand that black people stop showing anger about police killings or any other aspect of their oppression. The candle light vigils and kumbaya began in earnest after five Dallas, Texas police officers were killed last Friday.

Suddenly black people were told to be calm and peaceful and loving. Black anger makes others nervous but that is an indication of why it is so vital. Barack Obama says there is no division among the races. That means that there is and that the reasons for it must be called out.

Enough already. Stay angry my friends.
