This Is America #85: Once Now Into the Breach

Living and Fighting:

It’s been revealed that the Department of Justice has been actively suppressing reports that show the drastic rise of far-Right, neo-Nazi, and white nationalist violence. This comes at the same time as new reports show that the FBI still views “animal rights,” anarchists, and “Black Identity Extremists” as some of the largest threats to the public.

Meanwhile, in New York during the trial against two Proud Boys, one who was video taped giving a fascist salute during the beating of anti-racist and antifascist protesters last year and was also photographed in court doing the same, it has been revealed that the DA went to great lengths to gather information on counter-protesters after the violent far-Right attack. According to the Daily Beast:

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office admitted it demanded Google hand over account information for all devices used in parts of the Upper East Side. They didn’t do this to find the Proud Boys; they did it to find Antifa members.

Reverse search warrants have been used in other parts of the country, but this is the first time one was disclosed in New York. Unlike a traditional warrant, where law enforcement officials request information on a specific phone or individual, reverse warrants allow law enforcement to target an entire neighborhood. Police and prosecutors create a “geofence”—a map area—and demand information on anyone standing in the zone. This flips the logic of search warrants on its head. Rather than telling service providers the name or phone number of a suspect, reverse search warrants start with the location and work backwards.

Genocide Tomorrow: Trump sells ‘right to invade Rojava’ to Erdogan for $3.5bn .. STOP him NOW

According to Donald Trump, reports by Reuters and numerous American media, the 2000 US military troops are to be withdrawn from Syria. However the Pentagon may be stronger than Trump and hates the idea.

In a linked news, the State Department has approved a Sale to Turkey of eighty (80) Patriot MIM-104E GEM-T) missiles, sixty (60) PAC-3 (MSE) missiles for  $3.5 billion.

The deal appears to be a straight swap, $3.5 billion for the right to invade, massacre and take over Rojava, and resembles that done when Erdogan bought S-400 missiles and allowed the #turkstream 2 pipeline in exchange for Russia moving out its troops and giving bombing permission to invade Afrin.The presence of the US troops in Rojava has until now prevented Turkey from invading and colonizing all of North Syria and destroying the democratic multi ethnic, feminist Rojava Revolution, as repeatedly threatened by the elected dictator Erdogan. see.. Turkey says Kurdish in Syria ‘will be buried in their ditches 20/12/18

Turkey has already invaded and is ‘Turkifying’ Afrin, Jarablus and Al Bab areas, as well as growing parts of Idlib where it is recruitng the jihadi militias, including ex ISIS and Al Qaeda, to its FSA mercenaries, paid in Turkish money, by promising them land, loot, rape and conquest in Rojava.

“The decision was taken yesterday (Tuesday)”, an American official told AFP, adding withdrawal would be “full and rapid.” This is a 180 degree turn compared to the US statement saying they will keep a long-term military presence in Syria.

Spokespeople from the YPG and YPJ Rojava defense forces  and the SDF multi ethnic militia are calling for international support and self reliance against the looming Turkish sponsored genocide, which will probably begin when the US troops are out and the Idlib mercenaries prepared. The US is apparently abandoning them after sacrificing thousands of volunteers to take back Raqqa, the ISIS capital and nearly all north Syria.

Fascist Capitalists Triumph! Resist in every Possible Way

The Power That Must Be Resisted

“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.” – Ursula Le Guin

When the outright fascist Jair Bolsonaro won the Brazilian presidency in October, it wasn’t just the poor, people of colour, LGBTQ, or indigenous peoples that lost. Indeed, the earth’s weakened biosphere and imperiled climate lost even bigger.

The president elect of the world’s 4th largest democracy has vowed to open up vast swaths of the iconic rainforest to multinational logging, cattle, mining and agricultural industries. With this one political victory the world’s ruling capitalist elite saw more dollar signs than in their wildest dreams, and the earth’s “lungs” were given a terminal prognosis.

Bolsonaro’s rise to power bears a strong resemblance to that of Donald Trump, Narendra Modi, Rodrigo Duterte and Viktor Orban.

All of them have employed the techniques of classic fascism: demonizing political opponents and the media, rhetoric endorsing violence, stoking chauvinistic nationalism, scapegoating marginalized people. Continue reading “Fascist Capitalists Triumph! Resist in every Possible Way”

Brazilian ‘Trump’ to win 1st Election Round?? What a Disaster!

Brazil Could Return to a Dictatorship.   Glenn Greenwald on Possible Election of Far-Right Demagogue

Image result for marielle vive contra bolsonaro

AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now! I’m Amy Goodman. Voters in Brazil head to the polls Sunday in an election that could reshape the political landscape of South America. Polls show the current front-runner is the far-right Jair Bolsonaro, a former Army officer who has openly praised Brazil’s military dictatorship, which lasted from 1964 to 1985.

Exit polls should be broadcast at 7 p.m. local time and results will start flowing shortly after that because Brazil uses an electronic voting system.

Bolsonaro has a long history of making racist, misogynistic, homophobic comments. He has encouraged police to kill suspected drug dealers. Most polls show Bolsonaro winning on Sunday but failing to win enough votes to avoid a runoff election on October 28th. He has risen to the polls since September 8th, when he was stabbed while campaigning.Image result for brazil pare bolsonaro fascista

Bolsonaro also directly benefited from the jailing of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in April, who had been leading all presidential polls. Lula remains in jail on what many consider trumped-up corruption charges to prevent him from becoming president. Lula, the head of the Workers’ Party, was then forced to drop out of the race. Lula’s handpicked successor, Fernando Haddad, is currently placing second in most polls.

On Saturday, tens of thousands took part in women-led rallies in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and other cities to protest Bolsonaro. The theme of the protests, “Not Him.” Continue reading “Brazilian ‘Trump’ to win 1st Election Round?? What a Disaster!”
