Lindsey Graham claims President Trump had no idea he was breaking the rules when he withheld aid from Ukraine. Graham, admits that he knows Ukraine did not interfere with the 2016 presidential election and that it was, in fact, Russia that meddled with the election. Graham would then pivot, moving the conversation over the Bidens, while getting the heat off of Trump.
The right-wing conspiracy site, properly titled conspiracy.news, has made the claim that medical experiments are killing Black people. In the article, the writer states that Black people are taking the bait by believing in the threat of White supremacy to be real. The article also labels Black awareness groups such as Black Lives Matter as a terrorist group.
The article also lists Planned Parenthood as a means to kill black babies. While I may agree with some of the points that the writer made, I disagree with the notion that white supremacists are not a threat to the black community. A growing number of white supremacy groups are spreading throughout the U.S.A ,and have armed themselves preparing for a race war.
I don't see black extremist groups arming themselves. In fact, most black people in America know that we are out-numbered and trying to have a shootout would only lead to blacks being slaughtered. It's the white extremist groups that are forming militias, practicing at the gun range and just praying for the day that they get to "kill a nigger".
Although the conspiracy news article is riddled with quite a bit of propaganda, still there is some truth written here.
The U.S is beating the war drum once again. It seems as if John Bolton may finally get his wish. Iran is threatening to retaliate for the assassination of one its top generals, Qassem Soleimani which has sparked outrage all throughout Iran.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a bold statement on twitter.
"The great nation of Iran will take revenge for this heinous crime," Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted after the news was confirmed.
It is hard to tell if Iran is capable of delivering on their threats or if they are just blowing smoke but what has to be understood about this is now the U.S has justified an attack by Iran and any hopes of making deals in the future have been destroyed.
President Trump went on a twitter rant threatening to strike Iran severally if they attack the U.S in any way.
“Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD,” Trump said.
Russia has condemned the United States for the assassination of Soleimani and that the assassination would have “grave consequences for regional peace and stability,” according to a statement from its Foreign Ministry.
The Hill reports there were 70 anti-war protests were scheduled for Saturday, January 4, across the United States.
While the Trump administration has been busy trying to justify placing so-called Black extremist groups at the top of the FBI's most dangerous terrorists list, the real terrorists in America are exposing themselves every day.
In West Virginia, a group of correctional cadets gave the Nazi salute while posing for a class photo.
NBC News reports the Nazi salute began two to three weeks into training as one that the cadets have described as a "sign of respect" for an individual identified as "Instructor Byrd."
Instructor Byrd told investigators she was unaware of the “historical or racial implications of the gesture” stating that it was just a greeting.
"As I said from the beginning, I condemn the photo of Basic Training Class 18 in the strongest possible terms," Governor Jim Justice said in a statement.
"This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated on my watch in any agency of state government."
BBC reports the cadets have been fired.
What's important to point out is how embolden racists have become over the past few years. Some may think that the Nazi salutes mean nothing in the grand scheme of things but the fact that Trump is openly calling for a civil war makes this a dangerous situation.
