Refugees fleeing the U.S. to Canada could become a deluge in the spring

OTTAWA — As desperate asylum seekers continue to flee the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown by crossing into Canada, concern is growing here over whether the country will be able to cope if the number of migrants keeps growing.    Continue reading

Plutocratic Media Defeat of Sanders by Democrats created Trump’s victory

The fake news that provably threw the election to Trump was not Russian

The Democrats introduced the term “fake news” just days after losing the election.

Opinion - commentary -analysisBy  Rob Hager   – February 23, 2017 – | Op-Ed- Nation of Change

Trump and establishment Democrats are trading allegations about “fake news.”

Trump attacks CNN and others in the mass media with his typical lack of supporting evidence for his assertions. Nevertheless, progressives can agree with Trump that during the election major mass media selected Clinton as their candidate early on. They accordingly discounted and ignored Sanders during the primary while promoting Trump, and then promoted Clinton against Trump in the general election

The plutocratic media went beyond their usual propaganda role of merely defining the limits of public discussion and setting the agenda.  This time in desperation about a mobilized populist/progressive electorate they intervened in the election on behalf of the reliably plutocratic status quo candidate, Clinton.    Continue reading

OPINION: Unskilled and Unable – Why Donald Trump’s Great Jobs Promise is a Lie

OPINION: Unskilled and Unable – Why Donald Trump’s Great Jobs Promise is a Lie

The USA has serious problems with recruiting, training and retaining suitable factory workers. Michael Pascoe explains.

MICHAEL PASCOE | Business DayOpinion - commentary -analysis

For all the turmoil marking the first weeks of President Trump, the big boot is yet to drop. That’s when the angry heartland realises the factory jobs aren’t coming back, no matter what Trump promised.

It will take time for that realisation to dawn on Trump’s followers. Minor events, such as the 700 Carrier jobs, will be well-publicised PR stunts and the overall employment picture will tend to overshadow what’s specifically happening in manufacturing.      Continue reading

James Baldwin and the Meaning of Whiteness – by Chris Hedges

James Baldwin and the Meaning of Whiteness

by Chris Hedges – Monday, February 20, 2017 – by Truthdig

James Ba;dwin

The work of James Baldwin, pictured here in 1969, is as relevant today as in his time. The essayist, novelist, poet and social critic died in 1987. (Photo: Allan Warren / Wikimedia Commons)

Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro” is one of the finest documentaries I have ever seen—I would have stayed in the theater in New York to see the film again if the next showing had not been sold out. The newly released film powerfully illustrates, through James Baldwin’s prophetic work, that the insanity now gripping the United States is an inevitable consequence of white Americans’ steadfast failure to confront where they came from, who they are and the lies and myths they use to mask past and present crimes. Baldwin’s only equal as a 20th century essayist is George Orwell. If you have not read Baldwin you probably do not fully understand America. Especially now.     Continue reading

Why ‘Hidden Figures’ Is Alarmingly Relevant to the Black experience in present-day USA

Why ‘Hidden Figures’ Is So Alarmingly Relevant

coloredEven though it’s set in the 1960s, ‘Hidden Figures’ represents the Black experience in present-day USA.

 Uri Klein – Haaretz

 “Hidden Figures,” the second feature (after “St. Vincent,” 2014) by Theodore Melfi, is a lesson in American history that’s intended for the whole family. It’s set in the most significant decade of U.S.A. history, in the second half of the 20th century – the 1960s. Other films that take place in that decade deal grimly with the blacks’ struggle for civil rights and equality.

By contrast, “Hidden Figures,” though not omitting any part of the ugly treatment meted out to the “coloured,” as they were then called, presents its true story almost as a fairy tale that inevitably leads to victory.  Continue reading

Steve Bannon Lays Out His AMAZING Political Philosophy in 2011

Steve Bannon Lays Out His AMAZING Political Philosophy in 2011

Published on Nov 18, 2016

Speech by Stephen K. Bannon (Steve Bannon), Donald Trump’s senior strategic advisor and architect of his winning 2016 election. In this speech delivered in 1911 to the Liberty Restoration Foundation, Bannon laid out the political philosophy both he and Trump embraced, and which appealed to the American people in the election.  It is conservative, perhaps explaining why the political liberal left has resorted to evidently incorrect allegations of antisemitism or racism to try to derail his appointment.      Continue reading
