15 January 2017 — Black Agenda Report

Mocking, Marching, Stopping the Hate and Dumping Trump Are Not Enough

Talk Nation Radio: Millions of Americans Lose Their Minds Over Russia
by David Swanson

This week on Talk Nation Radio: millions of Americans lose their
everloving minds over unproven accusations against Russia. David Swanson explains how mockery and derision directed at Donald Trump don’t scare the Pentagon or NSA, and don’t prevent any of the outrages committed by Democrats when they retain power. Swanson takes the ACLU and CAIR to task for their ridiculous claim that war on Iraq was conducted to protect the U.S. Bill of Rights, and a torture report gets

Thanks in part to this expose Booker was defeated in 2002, but won the election four years later in 2006
