The thirteenth amendment has been in the news a lot recently. The text of it reads “Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” To break it down Lincoln was a fraud as slavery was not abolished. Allocation of slavery or involuntary servitude is still the same demon that the white man had visited upon blacks and Irish in this country. And subjecting the continuously mushrooming prison population to this practice actually victimizes the same groups in a sense. Being that our prisons are filled with people of color and disenfranchised whites who are all seen with the same racist and classiest contempt. Therefore not only is the U.S. the prison house of nations but also the plantation still stands. As though this isn’t bad enough we export our plantations under the name Free Trade Zone (FTZ) to exploit POC in third world countries. I’ve seen one and it kinda looked like a concentration camp. To clear up any ambiguity, America has no fucking interest in ending slavery and this will continue until this country engages in a number of ethical practices that would require a certain level of ethics and human interest. All who defend this amendment without demand of edit and those who wish to abolish it are nothing more than overseers and house boys.
Here’s my amazing long time friend (been there since the beginning) Jilly Bee with a perspective on the Kavanaugh fiasco and the shockwaves it sends through our existence. #Kavanaugh #SCOTUS
So everyone is melting down over Brett Kavanaugh. To put it simply, he’s not fucking qualified to serve on the supreme court. There’s the numerous allegations that he’s a rapist and overall sexual offender. His nonchalance towards sexual assault is problematic and disturbing. Beyond that he was highly instrumental in the PATRIOT ACT and called it Constitutional. What the fuck is constitutional about black sites, indefinite detention, warrantless taps of electronic communications and usurping the 4th Amendment. To reiterate, this guy isn’t fucking qualified to be a justice in our highest court. It’s quite funny that the defense of him is innocent until proven guilty for a guy who promoted the exact opposite of that during our illegal wars. Anyone else feel the irony?

So this week Alex Jones and Info Wars got pulled from Facebook, Spotify, ITunes and YouTube. The liberals are celebrating and the alt-right is melting down. Twitter has opted to keep him. And there’s been outrage at that. Jones is the bat shit crazy guy on the corner with a megaphone. He’s a vile creature. But he has the right to say what he does. Also the sites that pulled him are private companies with the right to refuse service or continue it. So I won’t miss the guy. But it’s an interesting study in freedom of speech.
Short history, this was an organization founded by a handful of big names in punk to turn the tide of the political climate during the G.W. Bush era and it made a lot of waves. But Barackstar Obama won, punk got complacent and lazy and we’re here now. So the idea is to get dissatisfied you (the 18 to 20 somethings) engaged in the political process. We can do this again. You don’t need a Fat Mike or Jello Biafra to get it going. You yourself can get your local scene and others in the community engaged. The mid term elections are this fall and There’s actual Nazis running for Senate and Congress. We gotta fight this at the ballot box. Use your social media with #punkvoter to help initiate a conversation. Anti-Fascism isn’t all about putting on a mask and smashing shit. The real fight is to ensure that these mutants don’t get seats and the old ones get out. It’s not just one sided. In Cali Fienstien and Pelosi need to move on and anyone who’s been rotting away longer than 2 terms. Some of em are Evil Dead at this point. #punkvoter
Debbie Africa was finally granted parole on Saturday 16JUN2018. This is a victory. Although other MOVE members were also up for parole and got denied. So this could simply be good ol’ PA throwing a pacifying bone to the black community in the wake of the Starbucks incident. But that does not discount the blessing of ReSister Debbie Africa being able to breathe the mildly free air outside of prison walls.
So I am quite sure there’s numerous Republicans frothing at the mouth, whooping, cheering and whatever else at Trump pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal. Let’s unpack this one. The deal was made by John Kerry who is a slimy creature and it didn’t help the state of things. Trump is a complete fool who’s doing this for political reasons with no true forethought. Instead of putting together a different and possibly better deal he’s just imposing sanctions. Has anyone else considered the idea that the “terrorism” from the middle east is a result of us and Russia continuously carrying out acts of neo-imperialism to get at natural resources? Most notably opium and oil. Afghanistan and UBL had a problem with us because we played them as our pawn during the cold war. We screamed about a war on terror though we didn’t attack Saudi Arabia where the 9/11 terrorists and their funding came from because we have a strategically located base. America doesn’t want to fight terror. It wants to send young under privileged Americans to the meat grinder to continue mucking up a place we have no business in.
