Joe Biden may appear to be a confused old man when he blurts out whatever comes to mind. But his outbursts shouldn’t be ignored. They always reveal his plans. “I mean what I say when I say it!” Those words were spoken by president elect Joe Biden in December 2020 during a meeting with a group described as “civil rights leaders.” Video of the meeting was leaked and Biden’s insulting and dismissive attitude towards Black people was clear even to those who ignored this tendency he has shown throughout his 50 years of public life. Biden did us a favor . . .
Since the post-World War II period national liberation movements and independent countries in Africa have developed solid diplomatic and economic relations with the former Soviet Union and today’s Russian Federation. It is this history which underlines the refusal of numerous African governments and mass organizations to side with the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in its efforts to encircle Russia in order to leave it as a diminished state dependent upon the dominant imperialist nations globally. . . .

Through it’s evolution as a settler colonial regime that enslaved Afrikans and committed genocide against the indigenous peoples and Afrikans, it has become an imperialist power house. Waging wars from Iraq, to Vietnam, to Korea, to Africa. There is no bounds to amerikkkan imperialism. One might ask why I’m starting an article that is about the Ukraine (nato) vs Russian conflict, with the united states? Well, that’s because if you follow the money. If you follow the weapons. . . .
Well, it only took six years. Six years for the Democratic Party to weaponize Russiagate into not just a way to blame and shame Black voters for the spectacular loss that Hillary Clinton suffered against The-Candidate-Who-Couldn’t-Have-Ever-Won-If-Hillary-Had-Actually-Campaigned-Like-She-Wanted-to-Earn-People’s-Votes-Instead-Of-Thinking-She-Was- Entitled-To-Them: Donald Trump. Six years of US corporate media mouthpieces telling Americans that Hillary lost because Black voters were duped by Rainbow Bernie Bikini posts, shoe ads, and “Like if You Love Jesus” posts that convinced them to either not vote, or to vote for Trump. Four years of “Look What You Blacks Did In Not Helping Elect Hillary” – having Black women on . . .

The prospect of a Russian company with close ties to the Russian government playing a prominent role in Mali has generated extreme panic among western imperialist powers. In 1885 the conference in Berlin was all about sharing opportunities to exploit Africa, but the idea of Russia feeding at the imperialist trough in Mali is not welcome news. . . .
Joe Biden is no better than Trump in creating an atmosphere of anti-Asian bigotry and de facto white supremacy with his foreign policy, and corporate media fan the flames of anti-Chinese racism. “The media in this country always use non-white people as the focus of suspicion.” Ever since a white Georgia man killed six Asian women and two others in Atlanta, the corporate media have jumped onto the “stop Asian hate” bandwagon as if they are innocent bystanders.
