Segment 1: Trump 2016: Making America White Again
The racist, xenophobic crazy train that is the Presidential campaign of Donald Trump continues to plow through middle America, picking up more and more passengers on a ride that is jumping right over Goodwin’s law into the uncharted territory where White power is coming out of the closet in 21st century America.
Leaping over Goodwin’s law, and landing on a Trump card empowering a vile White power movement to come out of the closet.
The post- Paris ISIS attack media climate is a hostile blood thirsty one, and the causalities are starting to pile up. With renewed assertions that Edward Snowden has blood on his hands, and by proxy, his so-called ‘enabler’ Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept.
As Glenn Greenwald writes:
“media outlets are viewed principally as corporate assets rather than journalistic ones: Their overriding goal is to avoid saying or doing anything that will create conflict between them and those who wield the greatest power.”

Quentin Tarantino, the Academy Award filmmaker of the soon to be released Hateful Eight, as well as Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and more says says police groups are vilifying critics of police brutality to avoid focusing on their problems with enforcement.
#RISEUPOCTOBER made history in bringing 100 families of police murder victims marching alongside Cornel West, Carl Dix, Eve Ensler, Jamal Joseph and Quentin Tarantino demanding that Police terror must stop and asking people to answer a simple question: Which Side are you on?
The march and protest marked the 20th annual march for The October 22 Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation which has been mobilizing every year since 1996 for a National Day of Protest, working to expose the epidemic of police brutality.
An interview with Carl Dix.
program note: This interview was recorded just weeks before Amber Lyon launched the website Reset.me, which provides journalism on natural therapies and medicines to enhance the mind, body, and spirit.
Amber talks with host Dennis Trainor, Jr. about her radical life and career shift; one she found through the life altering experience using and researching Ayahuasca and other Psychedelics. Lyon states too many of us are carrying around bottled up trauma that manifests itself as anxiety, depression, unhappiness, anger, fear, corruption, greed, or violence. Lyon says if we can each heal our wounds at the individual level, we will witness dramatic positive transformations as a whole.Read more
Solidarity with the Palestinian popular resistance! Boycott Israel now!
- by Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)
Whether the current phase of Israel’s intensified repression and Palestinian popular resistance will evolve into a full-fledged intifada or not, one thing is already evident—a new generation of Palestinians is marching on the footsteps of previous generations, rising up en masse against Israel’s brutal, decades-old regime of occupation, settler colonialism and apartheid.
World governments, especially in the west, are calling this a “cycle of violence” where both sides are to blame, ignoring the root cause of the colonial conflict and their own complicity in enabling Israel to maintain it and to violate international law with impunity. Almost all Palestinians today are calling for a full boycott of Israel and for isolating it internationally, in all fields, just as apartheid South African once was.
