“US President Donald Trump is facing heavy criticism for pardoning a former US soldier, once sentenced to 25 years in prison for murdering an Iraqi prisoner in 2009.
The White House announced on Monday that Trump signed an executive grant of clemency, a full pardon, for Michael Behenna. The 35-year-old was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison by a military court for the killing of an Iraqi prisoner suspected of being part of Al-Qaeda…
Behenna’s sentence was later reduced to 15 years by the army clemency and parole board. He was released as soon as he was eligible for parole in 2014 and ordered to remain on parole until 2024.
Behanna shot and killed Ali Mansur Mohamed in 2008 after he took him to a railroad culvert for questioning without authorization, instead of taking him home as instructed. Behenna stripped and questioned the prisoner at gunpoint about a roadside bombing that killed two members of a platoon under his command.
Behenna claimed he shot Mansur in self defence after the prisoner moved towards him and the soldier thought he might reach for his weapon. Afterwards, Behenna didn’t inform anyone of the killing, according to the Washington Post, and Iraqi police found Mansur’s body the next day.
Not only does the presidential pardon free Behenna of the restrictions of parole for the next five years, it also clears his record of the conviction. In a statement, Sarah Sanders said Behenna’s case “has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public.”
“Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency,” Sanders wrote.
However Sanders’ enthusiasm for the former “model prisoner” is not shared by human rights groups, including the ACLU who lambasted the president for pardoning a “convicted murderer and war criminal.”
Many critics took to Twitter to share their dismay at the presidential pardon, and highlight particularly gruesome details pertaining to the killing and Behenna’s subsequent statements.
Went through 4 yrs of ethics classes at West Point. Had a whole semester-long discussion on My Lai/Black Hearts in MX 400. I was taught that atrocities and murder in the name of America make us weak, make us the bad guys. So, I’m pretty damned confused about the Behenna pardon.— Victoria Oropeza-Kositz (@evo_kositz) May 7,2019…
iirc Behenna murdered the detainee because despite having zero evidence, he was convinced the guy had detonated an IED that killed soldiers in his platoon. So, basically, he murdered someone because he felt like it and Trump pardoned him to sate his base of nihilist racists

What I find offensive is now, two-Fold. One, olde tRunmpeteR missed the point on “peace is not freedom”. Two, he could have compared Behenna to “private Calle” of Vietnam “masse` murder” as murder is murder and NOT EVER EXCUSABLE, that is why court of law—which oddly olde tRumpeteR never abides. What Calle did was gRanted okay by US-military seeking “hegemony” and they got that. Thus, tRumpeteR continues that oddity. Secondly, Sarah Sanders is off her nut, too! The power-structure is fascist-Apparency, or the control of system, also known to us as “egRegiousness-Extent”. Likewise, the usages of NSDU-238 have never been put down by tRumpeteR nor US-bought-Off: congRess. He has not mentioned peace, other than “removal of U.S. tRoops from Syria, and those went directly into Iraq, which Iraq leadership complained to the United nations because of aggression.”

“the History of HIV and Current Epidemic”
1:27:39 mins 121,058 views May 16, 2013 posted by ‘cctv’
HIV infection is treated with three classes of antiretroviral medications. Protease inhibitors, which inhibit the action of an HIV enzyme called protease, include ritonavir, saquinavir, indinavir, nelfinavir, and lopinavir. Nucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitors (e.g., abacavir [ABC], zidovudine [AZT], zalcitabine [ddC], didanosine [ddI], stavudine [d4T], and lamivudine [3TC]) and non-nucleoside RT inhibitors (e.g., efavirenz, delavirdine, and nevirapine) both inhibit the action of reverse transcriptase. Each drug has unique side effects, and, in addition, treatment with combinations of those drugs leads to additional side effects, including a fat-redistribution condition called lipodystrophy.
Because HIV rapidly becomes resistant to any single antiretroviral drug, combination treatment is necessary for effective suppression of the virus. Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), a combination of three or four RT and protease inhibitors, has resulted in a marked drop in the mortality rate from HIV infection in the United States and other industrialized states since its introduction in 1996. Because of its high cost, HAART is generally not available in regions of the world hit hardest by HIV. Although HAART does not appear to eradicate HIV, it reduces plasma viral load, thereby allowing the immune system to reconstitute itself. Levels of free virus in the blood become undetectable; however, the virus is still present in reservoirs, the best known of which is a latent reservoir in a subset of helper T cells called resting memory T cells. The virus can persist in a latent state in those cells, which have a long life span because of their role in allowing the immune system to respond readily to previously encountered infections. Those latently infected cells represent a major barrier to curing the infection.
Patients successfully treated with HAART no longer suffer from the AIDS-associated conditions mentioned above, although severe side effects may accompany the treatment. Patients must continue to take all the drugs without missing doses in the prescribed combination, or they will risk developing a drug-resistant virus. In general, resistance develops because drug concentrations are too low, and though that can occur as a result of poor patient compliance, it also may occur as a result of drug interactions or poor absorption of drug by the body. If HAART is discontinued or fails, viral replication resumes, reflected in increased plasma viral load. That necessitates a change in the patient’s treatment regimen. Resistance testing is used to determine which individual drugs and classes of drugs have been rendered ineffective by viral resistance, thereby allowing health care providers to tailor the new HAART regimen, which is known as a salvage regimen, to the patient. Salvage regimens often entail multiple drug rescue therapy (MDRT), or mega-HAART, the use of between five and nine different drugs, including RT and protease inhibitors and sometimes hydroxyurea.
Antiretroviral therapy may be either immediate or delayed. In the past, delayed antiretroviral therapy was the preferred approach, with treatment initiated once CD4 levels had fallen to 200 cells per microlitre of blood, which generally coincides with the establishment of symptomatic disease. In most patients, initiating treatment at that point provides maximal therapeutic effectiveness, in that it minimizes the severity of drug toxicities and thus the risk for discontinuance of treatment and development of drug resistance. However, studies have indicated that in patients with morbidity-increasing factors, such as coinfection with a hepatitis virus or unusually rapid CD4 decline or high viral load, initiating treatment earlier, when CD4 levels have declined to 350 cells per microlitre, can improve survival and delay the onset of AIDS-related diseases significantly. Other studies have indicated that beginning antiretroviral treatment in infants immediately following diagnosis, rather than waiting until symptoms appear, can reduce infant mortality and disease progression dramatically. Taken together with the ability of antiretroviral therapy to reduce the risk of disease transmission, such studies have resulted in treatment recommendations that are more dynamic today than in the past, thereby improving treatment outcomes for certain subsets of patients with HIV. Individuals whose HIV levels are undetectable, who have a normal CD4 count, and who are free of opportunistic infection may serve as organ donors to other HIV-positive persons in need of organ transplant.”

“Oxfam also called on the Colombian government to take efficient preventive measures in a context marked by violence against social leaders, rejecting the wave
of murders against social leaders.
The Colombian Institute for Development and Peace Studies (Indepaz) revealed
Monday that in the first 27 days of 2020, 27 social leaders and four former combatants and signatories of the 2016 Peace Agreement have been killed.
Colombia: Ex-FARC Member and Peace Deal Signatory Assassinated
The figure was released after the recent assassination of the social leader Fernando Quintero Mena, in the northern municipality of Convencion, at the hands of armed men.
As a human rights defender is murdered on average in Colombia every day, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Office in the Latin American country urged President Ivan Duque to take structural measures to protect the lives of leaders and ex-combatants protected under the peace process.
Last week, the non-governmental organization Oxfam also called on the Colombian government to take efficient preventive measures in a context marked by violence against social leaders, rejecting the wave of murders against social leaders.
Colombia continues to be one of the most unstable countries in the region due to the insecurity experienced by social leaders and former members of armed groups who signed the peace agreement.
According to the U.N, since the peace agreement signing, more than 300 murders of human rights leaders have occurred; while another four ex-FARC members and peace agreement signatories have been murdered in 2020.”

“As the jumped-up, self-proclaimed, blonde new ruler of the world gives away half the Palestinian West Bank to the current Israeli military occupier, the world watches in amazement at the idea that this unbalanced popinjay – currently facing impeachment – could possibly be elected for a second term.
What on Earth happened to integrity and the rule of law? What happened to the Geneva Conventions? What happened to the NPT? What has happened to America? How is it possible that the world has to succumb to the unlawful activities of the Gang of Three: Trump, Pence and Pompeo?
The idea that this dangerously out-of-control triumvirate is allowed to continue to trample on international law by overturning hundreds of years of legal consensus around the world, is a frightening indication of corrupt government and leadership.
Trump’s Threat to Dispossess Four Million Palestinians by Violent Annexation of East Jerusalem and West Bank
The activities of the Gang of Three becomes more bizarre every day as they configure both America and the world to their own personal advantage. It is reminiscent of the recent rape of South Africa by the Gupta family.
Who would have believed that after Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Reagan and Obama, the American people would then make the gigantic error of electing a hotel developer with no political experience to run the most powerful state in the world? A man who cannot read and write but is adept at tweeting and philandering.
This political aberration must be dealt with once and for all by the electorate.
Time is now of the essence as the nuclear clock is already now at two minutes to
midnight. These are very dangerous times. The clowns must go otherwise the United States will eventually mirror lame-duck South Africa – a country hugely rich in natural resources but now near to collapse, and that, for America, would be a complete tragedy for the entire world.
Annexation of the Palestinian West Bank is unlawful and a criminal act of the Israeli state in collusion with the Gang of Three in the White House. The international community must condemn and reject such acts of forced colonisation. This is 2020 not 1936.”

“Researchers have concluded that this archaic population split an estimated million years ago from the lineage that led to modern humans, and is connected to neither the Neanderthal and Denisovan families whose DNA is carried in modern humans.
New research carried out by two geneticists from the University of California, Los Angeles, has found evidence of an extinct branch of human.
Geneticists Arun Durvasula and Sriram Sankararaman found pieces of DNA from a so-called ghost archaic population hiding in the genomes of some living populations in West Africa such as the Yoruba of Nigeria and the Mende of Sierra Leone.
The study, which was published in the journal Science Advances, is based on a comparison of genetic diversity in living Homo Sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans to track how new genotype variants arose in each branch of humans.
Durvasula and Sankararaman suggest that ancestors of West Africans and the ‘ghost archaic’ population interbred approximately 50,000 years ago, around the time when humans in Eurasia interbred with extinct Neanderthals and Denisovans. The researchers could not say what species of humanity the ghost archaic population belonged to.
The geneticists suggest that fossils like a 11,200-year-old skull found in the Iwo Eleru cave in Nigeria in 1965 might belong to this missing archaic population, according to The New York Times.
The new discovery may shed some light on human genetic diversity on the African continent, which has been difficult to study because of its sparse fossil records, although modern humanity is considered in the scientific community to have evolved in Africa.
The most effective way to test the results of the Durvasula and Sankararaman study may be to find a match the DNA from Iwo Eleru skull and the West African population identified by the geneticists, according to The New York Times.
“That’s the gold standard,” Sankararaman stated, adding, “I can’t wait for that to

“Neglected public infrastructure likely contributed to the overloaded sewage systems that flooded victims’ homes, just as inadequate housing is more susceptible to such impact. “We were able to put together a few vaccination clinics in that setting,” El-Sayed recalled of the response efforts. “But the very reason those people were exposed in the first place was Michigan’s inability to invest in its own infrastructure. It allowed this flooding to happen, which is what got people sick in the first place. It all comes down to government austerity, and the inability or lack of foresight to invest in public goods, which then allows infectious disease to spread.”
It’s a dynamic, according to El-Sayed, that will undoubtedly influence how the coronavirus outbreak plays out. After the Trump administration cut the global budget of the Centers for Disease Control in 2018 and lacking a robust safety net or universal healthcare system, we are left without critical resources for fighting novel pathogens. As El-Sayed put it, “when we invest in public goods, we’re keeping people safe in real time. When we let up on those investments, bad things happen.”
One such “bad thing” is the lack of an efficient diagnostic test, according to Ranu Dhillon, an epidemic advisor with the Harvard Medical School. Because testing supplies have yet to be adequately distributed across the United States, and coronavirus symptoms are indistinguishable from common ailments, it’s difficult to identify, trace and treat the cases already in our communities. This, Dhillon said, was a matter of failed strategy and underfunding, which is now being addressed in Congress. “If you’re in World War II, and you need to develop a certain sort of missile to win the war, you spare no effort to try and develop that as soon as possible,” he said. “You contract with the companies who are going to do it, you get it done.”
And yet, “getting it done” will be made infinitely more challenging in a context where broad swaths of the population lack access to the healthcare system. Familiar statistics about Americans’ access to care—nearly 30 million uninsured, and another 44 million underinsured—take on a new urgency in the face of a potential pandemic. A Medicare for All system, where care is guaranteed for free to everyone, fills in these gaps, which otherwise drive people away from the healthcare system and make it more difficult to manage a crisis.”

“…”He made a dishonest case for war. Thirteen years before George W. Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, his father made his own set of false claims to justify the aerial bombardment of that same country. The first Gulf War, as an investigation by journalist Joshua Keating concluded, “was sold on a mountain of war propaganda.”
For a start, Bush told the American public that Iraq had invaded Kuwait “without provocation or warning.” What he omitted to mention was that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, had given an effective green light to Saddam Hussein, telling him in July 1990, a week before his invasion, “[W]e have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.”
Then there is the fabrication of intelligence. Bush deployed U.S. troops to the Gulf in August 1990 and claimed that he was doing so in order “to assist the Saudi Arabian Government in the defense of its homeland.” As Scott Peterson wrote in the Christian Science Monitor in 2002, “Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated … that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border, threatening the key U.S. oil supplier.”
Yet when reporter Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times acquired her own commercial satellite images of the Saudi border, she found no signs of Iraqi forces; only an empty desert. “It was a pretty serious fib,” Heller told Peterson, adding: “That [Iraqi buildup] was the whole justification for Bush sending troops in there, and it just didn’t exist.”

He committed war crimes. Under Bush Sr., the U.S. dropped a whopping 88,500 tons of bombs on Iraq and Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, many of which resulted in horrific civilian casualties. In February 1991, for example, a U.S. airstrike on an air-raid shelter in the Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad killed at least 408 Iraqi civilians. According to Human Rights Watch, the Pentagon knew the Amiriyah facility had been used as a civil defense shelter during the Iran-Iraq war and yet had attacked without warning. It was, concluded HRW, “a serious violation of the laws of war.”

U.S. bombs also destroyed essential Iraqi civilian infrastructure — from electricity-generating and water-treatment facilities to food-processing plants and flour mills. This was no accident. As Barton Gellman of the Washington Post reported in June 1991: “Some targets, especially late in the war, were bombed primarily to create postwar leverage over Iraq, not to influence the course of the conflict itself. Planners now say their intent was to destroy or damage valuable facilities that Baghdad could not repair without foreign assistance. … Because of these goals, damage to civilian structures and interests, invariably described by briefers during the war as ‘collateral’ and unintended, was sometimes neither.”
Got that? The Bush administration deliberately targeted civilian infrastructure for “leverage” over Saddam Hussein. How is this not terrorism? As a Harvard public health team concluded in June 1991, less than four months after the end of the war, the destruction of Iraqi infrastructure had resulted in acute malnutrition and “epidemic” levels of cholera and typhoid.
By January 1992, Beth Osborne Daponte, a demographer with the U.S. Census Bureau, was estimating that Bush’s Gulf War had caused the deaths of 158,000 Iraqis, including 13,000 immediate civilian deaths and 70,000 deaths from the damage done to electricity and sewage treatment plants. Daponte’s numbers contradicted the Bush administration’s, and she was threatened by her superiors with dismissal for release.”

“The political and military leadership of the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has appeared to be in a shaky situation since the withdrawal of US troops from Syria’s north and the start of Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring. Since the start of the US invasion of Syria, Kurdish armed groups, primarily the People’s Protection Units (YPG), relied on foreign power to fend off the ISIS offensive and expand their control across northern and eastern Syria. The US military, political and financial support made Kurdish leaders believe that Kurdish armed groups were a kind of “integral” part of Washington’s strategy and that they had a voice to decide their future under a US protectorate. This illusion predetermined the YPG-SDF stance towards cooperation with the Damascus government and its allies.
In January-March 2018, YPG forces in Afrin were defeated by the Turkish Army and pro-Turkish armed groups and were forced to flee towards Syrian Army positions near Aleppo city. Prior to Turkey’s Operation Olive Branch, YPG leaders once again rejected Syrian-Russian proposals to settle their status and re-integrate into the Syrian state. Instead, they repeatedly asked the US and the so-called ‘international community’ for help – help which was not forthcoming.
The very same approach led to the start of Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring in northeastern Syria in 2019. On January 19, the so-called Autonomous Administration of Eastern Syria, a political body created by the SDF/YPG to manage the seized areas, issued a de-facto ultimatum to the Damascus government. Besides formal claims about the need to keep the unity of Syrian land and ensure rights to minorities, the 10-point long list included such demands as:
to accept the Autonomous Administration as a legal part of the Syrian political system;
to guarantee the Autonomous Administration representation in the Syrian Parliament;
to use the Autonomous Administration flag alongside the Syrian flag;
to allow the Autonomous Administration to conduct its own independent foreign policy;
to allow SDF units to keep control of the Syrian border;
to keep the SDF security force Asayish as the main security force within northeastern Syria;
to distribute “Syrian wealth to the Syrian regions in a fair manner.”
Summing up these claims, the SDF demanded Damascus should legally recognize a de-facto independent US-backed pseudo-state and its military force within Syria and fund this state from the Syrian state budget. This behavior undermined Damascus attempts to launch a real political dialogue to settle differences and the SDF became even more dependent on the US amid open preparations of Turkey for a military action in northeastern Syria. So, when US troops withdrew and the Turkish Army crossed the border, there was nobody to protect the Kurds. President Donald Trump turned up the heat even more by advising the Kurds, if they want US protection, to resettle into oil areas, control of which its administration sees as one of its main priorities.
Therefore, the SDF leaders rushed to reach a protection agreement with Damascus and Russia. Syrian Army troops and Russian Military Police were deployed along the border and the M4 highway limiting the Turks to the area that they had already captured. Moscow negotiated with Ankara a safe zone agreement. The Turkish Army limited its actions to the aforementioned chunk of the border. Rescued SDF units started withdrawal from a 30km zone away from the Turkish border.
Despite this, the SDF and its political representatives continue insisting that the agreement with Damascus is solely a security agreement and political terms and conditions are yet to be negotiated.”

The president of the National Assembly (NA), Luis Parra, announced this Monday that the Parliament will name a special commission that will be in charge of investigating the use of the alleged humanitarian aid funds sent to sectors of the extreme right of Venezuela, by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
RELATED: Cuban President Condemns Guaido’s Threats Against teleSUR
He also indicated that a request will be sent to the United States asking that country’s authorit[h]ies to investigate the resources given by USAID because “we don’t know where that money went.”
“We are saying that those scandals that have been widespread like the Cucutazo and the improper management of those resources should be investigated.
We are asking for the truth to be revealed to the country, in a matter that has been linked to the media and NGOs,” he said.
He insisted that Parliament, as an autonomous power, will continue an investigation to determine the destination of the resources.
“We are going to keep insisting on a transparent management,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Parra stated through Twitter that USAID has provided 467 million dollars since 2017.
Of that amount, Congressman Juan Guaidó has received $180 million since January 2019, as reported by the Venezuelan news agency AVN on its website.
The self-proclaimed ‘president’ of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, seems to be having a hard time staying in the spotlight.
He now plans to create a “presidential commission” to restructure teleSUR in order to serve his interests and to provide a channel that helps him stay relevant.
Since he lacks the popular support needed to become the leader of Venezuela, Guaido continues to seek alternative methods to harm the Bolivarian Republic.”

“I suppose you have to actually be convicted of a felony to be a felon, but I also think we should make an exception for U.S. presidents. Take the current one, for example. Donald Trump just murdered Iranian and Iraqi military officials at an airport in Baghdad. His staff later “briefed” Congress members on why these murders were “legal.” Congress members denounced the briefing as utter nonsense, and yet labeled the murders “a strike of choice.” People who have been convicted of murder, and who are properly called felons, never had the option of getting their crimes labeled “strikes of choice.”
Noam Chomsky famously said that, by the standards of the post-World War II trials, all of the post-World War II U.S. presidents would be hung. Of course, I don’t want anyone hung or killed in any manner or assaulted in any way, ever. But it’s not exactly disputable that presidents launch and facilitate wars and invasions and coups and assassinations and all variety of murders, and always have. We can dispute which forms of murder were legal on which dates. But it’s hard to escape the understanding that U.S. presidents, when examined closely, represent in certain ways the worst of U.S. society, and always have.
“U.S. presidents represent in certain ways the worst of U.S. society.”
Margaret Kimberley examines U.S. presidents on the question of their treatment of African-Americans (plus a few tangents into their treatment of Native Americans) in her new book, Prudential: Black America and the Presidents. Her focus is very rightly on the policies presidents imposed on the country, but also on what their personal actions and statements were throughout their lives. After all, these people, especially the longer they have been dead, are held up to us as model human beings.
Kimberley gives us 45 chapters, one on each president, making the book a very handy resource. After reading it, I felt compelled to flip back through and do a little math, to try to convey the consistent patterns of horrible behavior. I noticed not only that a large number of presidents enslaved other human beings, but that an even larger number had parents and families that did so (though Ulysses Grant was a first-generation slave owner in his family), that an enormous number favored shipping African-Americans to Africa, that segregation was very popular among presidents once that era had begun, and that racist attitudes and racist policies were ubiquitous in the presidential catalogue.
It’s hard to put numbers on everything without a great deal of additional research, but Kimberley documents many things for us, including how 10 of the first 12 presidents enslaved other human beings. The two exceptions are white supremacist John Adams, and his son John Quincy Adams, who in fact appears to have owned people as slaves.
Making a list or a mathematical calculation is easily (and eagerly) misinterpreted, of course. What I hope the 10 (or 11) out of 12 figure conveys is the dominance of slavery among the wealthy and political elite of the early United States, and not the idiotic and incoherent idea that each person on the list is the exact moral equivalent of each other person on the list each of whom is pure evil and never did anything good in their lives.
“Racist attitudes and racist policies were ubiquitous in the presidential catalogue.”
Washington, D.C., is named for the wealthiest enslaver of his day, and located in the swamp it’s in because powerful slave-owners wanted it there and wanted to be able to bring slaves there. George Washington, or Conotocaurious (his Iroquois name meaning Town Destroyer), was the first of every president up through Lincoln who supported the continuation of slavery. Kimberley notes that “[a] great irony exists in the fact that Washington is now the ‘blackest’ surname in the United States. Ninety percent of the Washingtons in America are black people.”
John Adams favored the forced removal of black people from the United States. At the time of the war of 1812, Adams denounced the British for not leaving the “stolen Negroes” (men who had escaped slavery to fight on the British side) to starve, or shipping them to Africa, but rather giving them a colony in Nova Scotia — just as the British had done with those who had escaped at the time of the revolution, including at least one man who had been enslaved by George Washington.
John Quincy Adams was the most anti-slavery president and former president the United States has had, but was no abolitionist. How much credit you should give people who obtain powerful positions and act relatively better, as compared with people who act far better but don’t obtain power, is open to discussion, but I look a bit more favorably on JQA than Kimberley does. She denounces his support for compensated emancipation or for ending slavery by freeing all those born after a certain date, and follows a quote by him in this regard by crediting him with rightly predicting war — despite no such prediction being contained in the quote.
Needless to say, it’s a disgusting notion that one should compensate the enslaver and purchase someone’s freedom, rather than compensating the person who has been enslaved while punishing the person who has enslaved them. Needless to say, it is a repulsive idea that anyone should remain in slavery an instant longer. And here’s another hideous idea that was actually tried: you murder three-quarters of a million people, destroy towns and cities, create bitter, seemingly eternal resentment, and fail to fully end slavery, sending black people in states like Alabama to work in underground mines for de facto owners who could now place zero value on black lives and behave accordingly.
“Washington is now the ‘blackest’ surname in the United States.”…”

“For the past 12 months, almost all of the ruling class centers of power have been arguing that Sanders is a socialist and thus “too left”; that his medical reforms “are too expensive” and will break the bank; that he “can’t beat Trump”; or, in the aftermath of his heart attack, that he is not “healthy enough,” which goes along well with the mantra that he is “too old.” At the last debate CNN and Elizabeth Warren conspired to set up Sanders as “sexist,” yet another argument to add to the list. These attacks on Sanders have not worked.
What’s the real reason the ruling class is so alarmed?
What has become crystal clear is that the Democratic Party establishment and its echo chambers in the “free press” clearly would favor four more years of Donald Trump over Sanders, a self-identified democratic socialist, in the White House. One must take a moment and ask: Why is this? By European standards Bernie Sanders would be an acceptable center-left politician. He would not be perceived as a danger to the existing social order. What is the U.S. ruling class so afraid of? Why is the Democratic establishment trying to destroy the Sanders campaign?
The ruling class and its two political parties rightly fear that a new, truly radical and even pre-revolutionary mass movement can quickly sweep through the country as it did in the 1930s and at the end of the 1960s. The Sanders electoral campaign itself is not that, but insofar as it is exciting and raising the expectation of millions who want to win substantive reforms by fighting the billionaire class, it presages what is to come. Sanders, the individual, may turn out to be an accidental political figure who spent a lifetime in the hallowed halls of the bourgeois Congress barely causing a stir, but whose presidential campaigns became a vessel and a catalyst for something more enduring – a movement of millions of people who are demanding radical solutions to the grievous injustices caused by plutocratic capitalism.”
We do need partisan-Socialists, or we do not need that as idiopathic of “coalition-Socialism”? New theoretical-dissonance is necessity, not enforcement for Bourgeoisie-Platitudes. Like this is time for more information, realization is not lost, but need “collective-Associationings”.

But socialist tactics have to be considered and decided based on the state of class-consciousness of the entire working class, and appreciation of where we are in the historical process, and what is most essential at our current juncture. For instance, some small groups of revolutionary socialists hold the conviction —that the capitalist system fundamentally cannot be reformed and that the Democratic Party would sooner come apart than be transformed. That is s not sufficient to draw out a tactical orientation. The question is how to fight alongside and to an extent merge with masses of people who are in their own process of struggle, so that such conclusions can be tested and proven in real life.
For our purposes here, the point is that it is not surprising that the mass reawakening of anti-capitalist and pro-socialist consciousness would register profoundly in the electoral realm, the path of least resistance. For tens of millions, it feels more legitimate and more possible to identify as a socialist or promote a socialist candidate in an election cycle rather than at a militant street protest or barricade. Given the relative smallness and limited influence of the revolutionary socialist trends in the United States, with whom these tens of millions have largely never interacted, how could it be otherwise? That the form of this struggle is currently inside the Democratic primary contest in some ways obscures its potentially radical or even revolutionary next manifestations.
The ruling class and its “thinkers,” however, are keenly aware that such trends can morph quickly into a truly mass, militant movement against a system dominated by billionaires. The ruling class, because of its role in society, is more acutely class conscious than the classes over which they dominate. They fear more than anything a new consciousness arising from the mass of the people who, should they begin to first stir and then move together with new demands, could become an irresistible force.
So far, the dynamic surge of the Sanders campaign reflects both the nascent mass movement for radical change and further stimulates this phenomenon inside the United States. The last year has witnessed a wave of mass protests all over the capitalist world. The subterranean yearnings for radical change are starting to burst out into the open, above ground, and they are rattling the existing social order and the ruling classes from Chile and Ecuador to Sudan, France, Lebanon, Iraq and beyond.
This yearning for change has not come all at once. It has been developing for nearly a decade. The Occupy movement in 2011 showed the potential for it when it burst onto the political scene. It spread like wildfire before it collapsed under the weight of both state repression and the folly of anarchist tactics. The Arab Spring started with the same impetus and the same dynamism but it too collapsed for multiple reasons, including the absence of an experienced revolutionary leadership capable of circumnavigating such troubled waters, the inability to stir the countryside and the opportunist intervention of imperialism.
Three years later, the rebellion in Ferguson, Missouri, ignited another new national movement against racism and for Black freedom and equality. Rebellion and resistance are in the air once again in 2019 and 2020 in the United States and around the world – and the ruling class and its two political parties inside the United States are scared. The billionaires and bankers do not actually fear Sanders the person at all, but they do fear that his campaign is becoming a springboard for something much larger and more radical. The Party for Socialism and Liberation believes that this is the primary basis to evaluate the Sanders campaign and determine socialist tactics to intervene in the current political struggle.”
Sen. Sanders ought know full well-Enough, that instigating the millenniums w.o. being an american-Socialist is the cause he should have opined, and take-take-Taken as his major route to peace and pRospeRity which this egRegiousness-Extent: empire has done. Whether “class-consciousness of the entire working class” is the weakening anti-Defense surrogation or not, bRian? No, incorrect, the “socialist-Consciousness” needs be repatRiated thRu the new-ImpRoved amenity of “defense is democRacy” and EMF-pulse weapons must be halted from Ionispheric-Heaters or due their doom some other direction or misdirectioning. “R”
