SECRET TERRORISM WATCHLIST FOUND UNCONSTITUTIONAL IN HISTORIC DECISION
All Eyes on the Watchlist

In a historic repudiation of a cornerstone of the post-9/11 global war on terror, a federal judge ruled that the U.S. government’s secretive terrorism watchlist is unconstitutional. Known as the Terrorist Screening Database, the watchlist included roughly 1.2 million people as of 2017, including about 4,600 U.S. citizens or green card holders, many of whom were subjected to arrests at gunpoint and hourslong interrogations.

The judge’s decision repeatedly cites a secret rulebook published by The Intercept in 2014 that detailed how an individual can be “nominated” to the watchlist as a “known or suspected terrorist” without any evidence that the person is actually a terrorist or has committed any crime.

Mississippi ICE Raids Targeted Workers Who Fought for Better Conditions

 

THEY.
WANT.
SLAVES.

 Wednesday’s raids targeted chicken processing plants operated by Koch Foods, one of the largest poultry producers in the U.S. Last year, the company paid out $3.75 million to settle an Equal Employment Opportunities Commission class-action suit charging the company with sexual harassment, national origin and race discrimination, and retaliation against Latino workers at one of its Mississippi plants. Labor activists say it’s the latest raid to target factories where immigrant workers have organized unions, fought back against discrimination or challenged unsafe and unsanitary conditions.

A review of the Facebook accounts of thousands of officers around the US — the largest database of its kind — found officers endorsing violence against Muslims, women, and criminal defendants.

“Good Day for a Choke Hold”
In Philadelphia, which has roughly 6,600 officers, the Plain View Project identified 1,073 on Facebook, about a third of whom had made troubling posts or comments.

 

So, “freedom” is a fascist police state and “liberty” means unaccountable badges attacking citizens with impunity…

A woman in Alabama signs a law, and so it must be the men fo California’s fault, somehow…

Nothing should surprise me anymore here in Trump’s America, but let’s take a look at what’s been flying around the web this week. In the wake of abortion ban attempts in Alabama and other mid-western states, women have taken to memes to fight their battle. And what has identity politics wrought now? What do these memes have in common?

They blame men! Shocker!

Point of fact, I’ve never met a male in over half a century here who was actively trying to outlaw abortion. Not one. I’ve never heard one even talk about it in a personal interaction. Strange, since it’s men oppressing women in a grand fictional conspiracy in meme after meme. Nevermind that the Governor of Alabama, who signed the actual law, is a woman.

Most men don’t give a shit about the topic, unless they get someone pregnant and then they are happy the option is available. It’s not men who are organizing to overthrow Roe vs. Wade. I’m not sure how today’s feminists can be so off-target that they couldn’t hit the side of a church.

Yes, it’s fundamentalist religious groups doing this. It’s astounding that this needs to be typed, but here we are. American-Taliban theocrats are the ones organizing to mold the country into their warped image–not “men.” How dense do you have to be not to already know this? American politics is so sloppy, so full of generalizations and propaganda, that few people are capable of thinking clearly about this or most other hot-button topics.

Women are mindlessly alienating their own political allies with this barrage of hate against men. Heckuva job. Divide and conquer yourself.

The fundamentalist religious nutbars have built an empire of Madrassas to indoctrinate their children and train them as foot soldiers in their ideological wars. Their numbers have grown steadily, ushered in by charlatan televangelists and megachurches.

The Catholic schools have also become more brazen, such as that field trip to DC that became a national racist incident. That high school class was bussed in to the Capitol to act as anti-abortion fodder for the church. This is organized political action using children of both genders to achieve what is now being legislated in multiple states. That church and school should have lost their tax-exempt status over these types of activities.

Religion is the antagonist here, not gender. If you can’t even properly define your adversary you’re not going to get very far on the battlefield.

I’m not sure if some American women are simply reluctant to attack religion because of their own religious beliefs and indoctrination, and “men” are always available as the handy scapegoat. Sure, why not? Just blame the men.

But, I’m not having it. Take a good hard look in your mirrors, ladies, and try again.
