Now Age Conversations: "2016 Politics Wrap-Up" with Margaret Kimberley

Today I had my third discussion of 2016 with Craig Gordon of Now Age Press. We talked about the election of course and the frightening aftermath. Hillary Clinton's defeat exposed the precarious nature of the American project for world wide hegemony. Obama is spending his last few weeks in office with a determination to repress dissent and perhaps get us into war. The democrats are a mess and have been exposed as frauds. Craig and I dissect it all. Enjoy.

Margaret Kimberley and Ajamu Baraka Live video

I am grateful to the Green Party ticket of Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka for presenting their live videos during and after the presidential election. I was especially grateful to talk to Ajamu tonight about a wide range of issues for just 30 minutes. We did our best to cram in a lot of conversation. Enjoy.

Photos from my weekend in Mississippi. The professional quality photos were taken by Lovette Kargbo-Thompson. The not so bad photos came from my phone.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Fighting for Southern Human Rights

I must give a huge shout out to Don Debar of Community Public Radio (CPR) News. Back in March he asked me to be a regular guest on his program. So almost every week since then we have discussed my latest Black Agenda Report columns. It has been a lot of fun and a great experience for me. Right now Don has been purged from Facebook for mysterious reasons. I think it is because he recently traveled to Cuba. In any case I'm just taking a short end of year break but we'll back together in January.

Today we talked for our final 2016 program about Fighting for Southern Human Rights. I spent the weekend in Jackson, Mississippi at the Southern Human Rights Organizers Conference (SHROC) and met amazing people. We had a direct action at a Nissan plant and I was on a great panel with Ajamu Baraka and others.

There is nothing like being with like minded folks and pursuing a common goal. Our goal is liberation and that struggle continues. Listen to our talk here.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Black Fear in the Age of Trump

Don Debar and I resumed our conversations which are a great opportunity to discuss my Black Agenda Report columns in depth. This week Black Fear in the Age of Trump was the topic. Yes Trump is the latest representative of the white people's party and no that isn't good for black people. But it is also not good for us to give up our power and to think that we cannot decide upon or press ahead with our agenda.

In the 1950s and 1960s discrimination was legal. We had no allies in the media or corporate America. We had no money and half of all black Americans lived in the south and had no voting rights. We had nothing we now think we must have and yet we changed the nation.

We can do so again. No need to live in a state of dread or to cling to the discredited democratic party. Listen to Don and I talk here.

Hands Off Syria Coalition

 I am a member of the coordinating committee of the Hands Off Syria Coalition. HOSC is sponsoring a United States tour for Eva Bartlett, an independent journalists who has spend many years reporting from Syria. I was honored to appear on a panel in New York City with Eva, Bahman Azad of HOSC, Sara Flounders of the International Action Center and Dr. Ghias Moussa of Syria American Forum.  Please watch the entire video to learn the latest about Syria, which is not what you will see in the corporate media.

Zero Squared Podcast: Margaret Kimberley Takes on Trump

This grandiose title describes my conversation with Douglas Lain on his Zero Squared Podcast about a week after election day. Unfortunately it was too soon to give numbers on the election. I said that Hillary Clinton got 6 million fewer votes than Obama did in 2012. She actually got 400,000 fewer votes. Aside from that I'll stand by what I said.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Black Agenda Report on the Honor Roll

As always Don DeBar and I discussed my Black Agenda Report column. Black Agenda Report on the Honor Roll is a paean to BAR's independence and fearless analysis of United States foreign policy. Because of that we we ended up on the Is It Propaganda or Not list of supposedly Russian controlled media sites. This tale was spun by the  Washington Post which was clearly working with the democrats to make sure that regime change stays on the menu. Listen to our convo here.
