US Military Personal Shoots Civilian Driver: Military says Release Unauthorzed

US Military Firing on Civilian
Scribe: N. Tru Bass
 
 
We all remember the 2008, Collateral Murder, a video distributed by WikiLeaks in Iraq showing an American helicopter demanding permission to shoot unarmed journalist on the ground below. The first frame of the video has a quote from George Orwell that says, “Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.” In time of war most Americans understand that laws and norms are rescinded. But, most expect for soldiers to do the right thing, the moral thing.

US Government Targeting Black Groups before a Crime

Op/Ed

Ever heard of BIE? Ever heard of the KKK? In reverse order I will explain both these acronyms and their mission. The KKK is one of many American terrorist organizations that sprung up in 1865, to terrorize newly freed slaves, with death and gore. Over the past 153 years not much has changed. Many of the klansmen then represented law enforcement, family doctors and lawyers and otherwise respectful people. However there is a new threat.

BIE, or Black Identity Extremists likely Motivated to Target Law Enforcement Officers is the new threat. Believe it or not tax dollars are being tossed at this faux-COINTELPRO initiative in anticipation of a crime. Before I go deeper into the BIE, I will first revisit the COINTELPRO a program directed by J. Edgar Hoover.

Officials close to the White House have announced the end of a humanitarian program that has temporary protected Salvadorans who who have worked and live in the United States. Just weeks ago more than 45,000 Haitians have been denied protections. Hondurans and Nicaraguans are expected to be next up.

El Salvador, employees and advocates have all chimed in to speak to the importance of extending the program that has been extended since 2001. California, Virginia and along with other states will be impacted by the decision to undermine a successful federal program. One nationally respected news organization quoted on of the Salvadorans who would be challenged by the renege said, “We had hope that if we worked hard, paid our taxes and didn’t get in trouble we would be allowed to stay.”

The White House has imposed a ban on personal communication devices after major detachment with Trumps former associate and reputed racist Steve Bannon. Former White House strategist Bannon has proved during the Alabama congressional race that his power are greater than the sitting presidents. However, there was still some agreement of major points between the two behaviorally supremacist men.

Bannon said about Mrs. Trump, she’s, “dumb as a brick.” He continued about Donal Jr.’s infamous meeting with Russians officials, saying there was 0% chance that he didn’t walk the Russians upstairs to his fathers office. He then refered to the sitting president an “accommondationist.” In the same National monthly publication, the former Trump ally said the president had lost a step and that he was like “an 11-year-old child.”

Later Trump dittoed the sentiment on social media saying, "Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime's corruption & its squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism abroad.

"Iranian govt should respect their people's rights, including right to express themselves. The world is watching!"

Afghanistan is in play as for troops have been killed and more than 30 wounded on Thursday as attacks continue. Earlier this month VP Mike Pence made an impromptu appearance in the nation state to offer much needed moral to an exhausted military.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. On Christmas day ISIS claimed ties to a christmas day bombing in Kabul that claimed the lives of six people. A few days earlier the same group stormed the intelligence center in Kabul according to reports.

An increase in attacks on spiritual centers by ISIS members has become the norm.

Officials say there are more than 15,000 military personal stationed in Afghanistan and 3,500 more are awaiting departure.

Sitting President of the United States of American, Donald Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The announcement was made at the top of December and united Palestinians both Christian and Muslim. International condemnation ensued after the declaration. Archbishop of Jerusalem’s Greek Orthodox church, Atallah Hanna said in a statement on Saturday, "The US gave the occupation what it does not deserve." The missive continued, "Christians and Muslims around the world who consider Jerusalem as an incubator of their most sacred, spiritual and national heritage".

Palestinians are proclaiming the importance of Jerusalem and are demanding peace with their neighbors. The region has been destabilized after Trumps 6 December announcement. Jerusalem has traditionally been the capital of Palestine.
