1984 rears its ugly head again…

Haven’t read it yet but thought it was timely. I want to know what this guy has to say about it!

Now having read about 1/3 of it, I think we have to do a new article, but for liberals. Any liberal reading this piece thinks Trump is the enemy, and truth and reason have never been sacrificed before, that certain stories didn’t get propagated and then become as if the truth. This would be about Obama and Hillary Clinton, trade deals, and neoliberal truths about what is possible and what is not in a 21st century society. Things about war, I guess, like the War on Terror, and regulation and policy changes like instituting single payer and all sorts of things.

At least 24 civilians die in first extra-judicial killing of Trump administration

Nawar Al-Awlaki, 8 years old, daughter of Anwar Al-Awlaki, was killed in this latest US raid — on foot, not drone — of a house in a Yemeni village, as well as 10 other children, 6 women, and 8 other male villagers.

These villagers are from the same village that was struck by drones in 2013 killing many members of a wedding party. The same village, in other words, was struck twice in little more than three years.

I’m not sure the relation to Trump, besides the undeclared war, started under Bush, and continued under Obama, continues to escalate.

Let’s not forget that a lot of Trump policies are the continuation of the seeds laid in previous administrations.

 

expanding the ban….

apparently, another executive order in the making got leaked to the post, and it proposes to ban the entry of – and possibly deport – immigrants that are ‘likely to require taxpayer assistance’

fill the cabinet with big money oligarchs; distract the masses with one circus act after another. not even sure if bread is coming though.

oh, and who’s next?
