27 November 2013 — RT

In one of the few statements made to the public since she was sentenced this summer for crimes related to the unauthorized disclosure of classified information to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, Manning tells TIME Magazine that she’s hesitant to celebrate Thanksgiving due to the true nature of the sordid relationship between European settlers and Native Americans. Nevertheless, Manning writes from prison that she’s thankful for being aware of such atrocities, and this Thanksgiving appreciates the efforts of Americans who “dare to ask probing, even dangerous, questions.”

Ruin-Nation: The Obama Catastrophe

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford
After two and a half years of waging war against the Left half of his own party, while seeking a “Grand Consensus” with the GOP, President Obama has finally set “in motion a rolling implosion of Roosevelt’s New Deal and Johnson’s Great Society.” The final vote on the debt ceiling measure – actually a ruse to impose savage cuts in social spending – saw a substantial portion of the Congressional Black Caucus put the president’s prestige above their constituents’ vital interests.
