How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World: A Review

The U.S. military state overthrows democratically-elected governments that it deems to be a threat to corporate interests.

“There is plenty of evidence that the United States is the most depraved and dangerous “meddler” in the affairs of other nations that history has ever known.”

Dan Kovalik is a labor and human rights lawyer, but most of all he is an anti-imperialist and an author of three books. Kovalik’s first two books tackled the specific US war drives against Russia and Iran. His third installment, The Plot to Control the World: How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World, addresses the broad scope of US election meddling abroad. The book provides much needed political and ideological life support to an anti-war movement in the U.S that has been rendered nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Murphy relaxes rules for hair braiders

Natural hair braiders will no longer be required to face the expense of securing a cosmetology license under a law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy this week, but will still face state oversight.

The measure, A3754, will create a limited license for hair braiding businesses and reduces the required training from 1,200 hours to 40 or 50.

The Black Church In Trenton
There are roughly 25 major Black churches in Trenton for the approximately 44,000 Black residents of the city. As with Black churches nationally, Black churches in Trenton are primarily female in attendance. The males who attend are under 14 years of age or over 60. Adult women over 40 are the backbone of the church.
Traditionally, Black churches in Trenton, for the most part, have been sideline spectators as it relates to civil rights, community and political activism. During the civil rights era, Black churches in Trenton gave little if any support to the movement.

“Don’t Touch My Hair!”
May I have that, please?
That’s what you say when you want something, and people are impressed by your manners. You’re a kid who never just takes, you always ask first because you want the same kind of manners back. But in the new book “Don’t Touch My Hair!” by Sharee Miller, you might have to ask for them, too.

Kwanzaa
In 1966, the only “indigenous non-heroic Black holiday in the United States” was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, the founder and chairman of the Black nationalist organization, “US”, and a professor of political science in California. The ideas and conceptions of Kwanzaa developed out of the system of social and political thought of Kawaida (tradition and reason), also developed by Dr. Karenga.
The word KWANZAA is derived from the Swahili word “KWANZA”, which means “first” and is part of the phrase Matunda Ya Kwanza (first fruits). Dr. Karenga added the extra “a” to the word.
Kwanzaa is an adaptation of the African celebration of harvest time, when traditionally the community gathered to celebrate the fruits of its labor. Cele­brating Kwanzaa is one way in which African Americans can continually build and foster positive social, eco­nomic, emotional and spiritual growth in every aspect of our lives. It is a cultural awakening.
The NGUZO SABA (the Seven Principles) represent the “minimum set of principles by which Black people must live in order to begin to receive and reconstruct our history and lives
Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and ends on January 1. Each day of Kwanzaa represents one of the Nguzo Saba

A glimmer of hope arises in Mumia Abu Jamal murder conviction

mumia_abu-jamal_09-18-2018.jpg

In a packed courtroom on Aug. 30 at the Juanita Kidd Stout Criminal Justice Center before Judge Leon Tucker, Mr. Abu Jamal’s attorney Judith Ritter successfully argued that a May 5, 1988, letter from the office of then-District Attorney Ron Castille to a state representative discussing death penalty cases was important. Later, as a state Supreme Court justice, Mr. Castille was personally involved in the case.

He refused to disqualify himself when Mr. Jamal’s case came before the high court despite having been the Philadelphia district attorney during prior appeals. The United States Supreme Court ruled such conduct was unconstitutional.

Judge Tucker extended the period of discovery to allow the search for more evidence that may link  Justice Castille to the new document. The new court date for arguments is scheduled for Oct. 29

B.C. Franklin, a Greenwood lawyer and the father of famed historian John Hope Franklin, wrote a rare firsthand account of the massacre later donated to the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

“The sidewalk was literally covered with burning turpentine balls,” he wrote. “For fully forty-eight hours, the fires raged and burned everything in its path and it left nothing but ashes and burned safes and trunks and the like that were stored in beautiful houses and businesses.”

On June 1, 1921, martial law was declared. Troops rounded up black men, women and children and detained them for days.
