Black Thoughts For Multi-Cultural Readers
Barbara Lee says that the military conducts invasions around the world without congressional oversight or outside public scrutiny. Lee wants Congress to repeal the laws authorizing the use of military force and reclaim its own constitutional authority to declare war. Lee amended the defense appropriations bill to repeal the 2001 and 2002 AUMF laws. Her amendment passed the House Appropriations Committee and her amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act passed the full House of Representatives.

And that American corporations like Ford, Standard Oil, IBM and Coca-Cola financed the Nazi party. But the propaganda that branded unions and racial minorities as enemies of the German people and the use of storm troopers to physically attack their opponents gave the Nazis their power and legitimacy. This was how the Nazis transformed Germany’s democracy into the Third Reich. Today, the deep state uses an alliance with the Vatican, Big Money’s corruption of both political parties and the systematic terrorism of racial minorities by law enforcement and the Justice Department to transform America’s democracy into a fascist tyranny.

Recently, the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration broke the law when it defied a federal court’s order to restore DACA, the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals. DACA allows legal immigrants to live and work in the United States without government harassment. But Trump, a virulent racist, is determined to limit immigration into the US to whites only. Trump, also, has ordered racially inspired mass deportations of minority citizens and legal residents, alike. Trump has even deported military veterans and dying patients. Trump has deported as many non-white people as his goons can round up in defiance of federal court orders, Supreme Court rulings and existing law. In this way, Trump, the dictator, is replacing the rule of law with fascism.
