Black Agenda Radio – 01.16.17

Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I’m Glen Ford, along with my co-host, Nellie Bailey. Coming up: Dr. Anthony Monteiro says the U.S. political and economic system is coming apart at the seams, with the ruling class fighting among itself — and that’s one reason the Democrats seem to have gone crazy over the imagined Russian threat. We’ll talk with Dr. Monteiro about the Democrats’ disarray, and the larger crisis of capitalism.

JOHN W. WHITEHEAD – 2016: The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year

What a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year this has been. Endless wars. Toxic politics. Violence. Hunger. Police shootings. Mass shootings. Economic downturns. Political circuses. Senseless tragedies. Loss. Heartache. Intolerance. Prejudice. Hatred. Apathy. Meanness. Cruelty. Poverty. Inhumanity. Greed. Here’s just a small sampling of what we’ve suffered through in 2016. After three years of increasingly toxic politics, the ruling …

No, Hillary, young voters aren’t naive. The system doesn’t work for them

It is among the most venerable election rituals of the smartphone era: down the home stretch, a recording surfaces containing embarrassing audio of a candidate elite-’splaining politics to a room of rich, self-satisfied donors. In 2008, Barack Obama was caught talking in San Francisco about Rust Belt left-behinds who “cling” to guns and Bibles. Four years later, Mitt Romney never …

Trends This Week – Liberals are the worse cowards – 10.05.16

Gerald Celente makes a powerful case for how Hillary Clinton supporters, and Liberals in general, are in a state of denial. They cannot see or admit how Democrats in power have festered war worldwide following the Bush years. And they’re aided and abetted by the Presstitute media. Elsewhere, he touches on why the price of Gold is tanking and what to expect next. And, he even ponders the supposed death of “partner dancing.”

Leid Stories—Haiti’s Catastrophic 2010 Earthquake A Seismic Boost to the Clintons’ Political Ambitions—09.27.16

Americans continue to hold the view, according to major polls, that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is “untrustworthy.” Most Haitians—in the United States, Haiti and the Haitian diaspora—would say that characterization is an understatement. For, Hillary and husband Bill have done Haiti grievous wrongs, they’d say, and have done grievous wrongs in Haiti.

William Dunkerley – Proof of Clinton Complicity in Russia Mess Discovered in NY Times Archives

There has been a plethora of stories in the New York Times that cast Russia and its leader Vladimir Putin in a very negative light. So it was with great interest that I saw recently a 1998 article that explained how the US-Russia relationship was headed for serious trouble. It even prophesized the dire straits the two countries find themselves in today. …

William Greider – Whom Should We Blame for Our Deranged Democracy?

The 2016 election season started last year with a cheap stunt. The roguish clown Donald Trump set fire to the circus tent, then made fun of the fleeing performers. Many of us laughed in a sick sort of way, enjoying the Republican distress. Next the campaign became a cartoonish version of reality TV, with naughty name-calling and occasional sexual innuendo. Shock …

Oliver Renick, Joseph Ciolli – Clinton Health Another Land Mine for Suddenly Vulnerable Markets

Investors nursing wounds after the worst selloff in three months for equity and debt markets got another stress to ponder after concerns over Hillary Clinton’s health flared anew. The 68-year-old Democratic presidential nominee, whose polling edge over Donald Trump has soothed traders who fear ruptures to U.S. policy and see virtue in political gridlock, is suffering from pneumonia and became overheated and dehydrated during a Sept. …

Julian Hattem – Clinton sides with Dem leaders on Iran sanctions

Hillary Clinton is siding with leading Senate Democrats in a looming fight over expiring sanctions on Iran. In a statement to The Hill, a spokesman for Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, called for Congress to renew the expiring Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) without adding additional measures to combat recent aggressive behavior in the wake of the international nuclear deal. “Hillary Clinton …
