He recently wrote:

2019 must be a year of uprising and action. We must collectively come together and take to the streets. We must organize, we must strategize, we must look at what must be done to change the tide of where things are going in this country and globally.

The open growth and validation of White Power and White Supremacy has fueled all kinds of “isms”, Racism, Sexism, Classism, Homophobia, Ableism continues to growth. This current administration of the “Orange Julius Caesar” is the culmination of years of the Corporate parties of the Democrats and Republicans love affair with Greed, Capitalism, and Corporate money, as well as the War machine and it’s Imperial ventures around the globe.

Movements must emerge… But, they must be all inclusive and not anti-immigrant. They must be movement’s from the bottom up, led and informed by oppressed classes of people. We must unite with all oppressed classes of people and build a movement rooted and grounded in solidarity, We must dismantle Capitalism, Imperialism and all forms of bigotry by creating a shared community… Revolt is necessary and it must happen, there is no time left. Movements have always changed things, people uniting have always changed things. Revolution now! If not now, then when?

Congress Votes for Secure Borders for NATO Countries

By: Cliff Kincaid

In what has been called a “strong message” to President Trump, the new socialist-controlled House of Representatives has passed the “NATO Support Act” (H.R. 676) by a vote of 357 to 22.  So while the House under the direction of Speaker Nancy Pelosi has resisted paying for a wall to defend the sovereignty of the United States, the House has voted overwhelmingly to defend the borders of countries in Europe.

The NATO Support Act is described as one of the first bills pushed through the new Democratic-majority House. This demonstrates their priorities: open borders for the U.S. and secure borders for the rest of the world, to be guaranteed by American fighting men and women.

Incredibly, many Republicans, including House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, went along with the ploy. The bill prohibits withdrawal from NATO and even endorses “robust United States funding for the European Deterrence Initiative,” a plan for even more spending by the U.S. on our European “allies.”  One can easily see this developing into American support for a European Army or even a United Nations Army.

But the U.S. can’t protect its own southern border.
