It feels significant the White House is portraying the violence at the border as it following “Covid Safety Protocol”, using Title 42, legislation that’s supposedly aimed at ‘preventing the spread of Covid-19 in holding facilities’.
It was painfully obvious that legislation like this that was passed supposedly for reasons of public health would in fact be used in obscene ways like this. Biden extended Title 42 “indefinitely” in August.
Such outcomes were predictable and far too often I’ve seen people expressing concerns about eventualities exactly like this re. borders and freedom of movement rudely shut down and accused of not taking Covid seriously etc…

Looks like using Guantanamo Bay to imprison Haitians will shortly be added to the ever-expanding list of utterly obscene things the Biden administration has done.
Remember when people who weren’t celebrating Biden’s win got attacked as “haters” who “weren’t letting people enjoy things”? Despicable.
I wrote this at the time about why such criticism was so disgusting, but if anything, the admin has possibly been even worse than I was anticipating and I was already expecting the worse.

What an achievement this is shouldn’t be underestimated. Hezbollah has successfully delivered fuel to suffocated/sanctioned Lebanon from another sanctioned country (Iran), via yet another sanctioned country (Syria). All three working together against US hegemony & it’s designs.
Notice who will be completely silent about this blow to US imperialist hegemony and it’s intentions but vocally defends meaningless stunts by opportunist politicians in the West like AOC, it says everything you need to know about their priorities and principles.

One of the most depraved front pages I’ve ever seen.
Page six:
For those who’ve asked, this is in today’s Daily Mail, a Nazi rag.

Robert De Niro is a Zionist who fund raises for the IDF so it’s no surprise he’d gladly partake in such an openly racist, anti-Arab skit like this.

It is now well documented that throughout the Cold War, the CIA & allied agencies in other countries thoroughly infiltrated & funded the Left on a huge scale in order to push it away from communism and anti-imperialism. Anyone who thinks that effort has ever stopped is deluded.
On the contrary, it is evident that it is ongoing and the internet/social media has merely provided it with another rich terrain to infiltrate and influence.

UK and US imperialist leftists unite 🥴
Not as offensive as Jones chummily interviewing war criminal Alastair Campbell or the NED asset Joshua Wong, but this is still very bad (and telling).
I clicked to a random point in the interview and what are they doing in it? Attacking and slandering anti-imperialists of course.
