Nakba Day, or Yawm an-Nakba in Arabic, commemorates the day in May, 1948 when Israel began the systematic, incremental genocide of an indigenous people causing hundreds of thousands of them to flee from their homelands (or die at the hands of Israeli terrorists.)
Sadly, nothing has changed...…
Nancy Pelosi's time is past.
She proved that during a "60 Minutes" interview last Sunday.
I'm all for "I've been doing this job forever" people keeping their jobs, but once their minds starts failing it…Continue
The words in the title are from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The following are the words of Nancy Pelosi:
“As I say to my own district, ‘You go out and elect 218 people, just like San Francisco, then we can talk..."
The problem with Pelosi's words, besides being…Continue
Last Saturday, Donald Trump stood in from of a group called the Republican Jewish Coalition.
He told them the following:
“I stood with your prime minister at the White House to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights...”
They cheered him.…Continue
Back on February 27th I wrote a post about how Ms. Lori Lightfoot was what hope looked like.
That hope has now turned into reality and i couldn't be more proud of the…Continue
With #AIPAC2019 starting, lets see all the ways Trump has catered to Israel’s right wing government:
1. At Israel's prompting, moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2. At Israel's prompting, cut funding for refugees through UNWRA
3. At Israel's prompting, withdrew from…Continue
Conservatives want you to believe that not having to choose between paying for rent or medicine is Soviet-style tyranny…
That title translates (from Italian), "Better dead than lesbian".
That is a phrase I heard more than once in my youth.
Many here know my history (and that I am 100% Sicilian), but to the one's who don't let me share that, after my parents were killed, I ended up…Continue
At 8:29, every night she is in the hospital, 13-year-old Olivia Stephenson sits in her hospital room window with her flashlight.
A minute later skyscrapers, restaurants, church groups, nightclubs, tugboats, hotels, a yacht club, police cruisers, etc. flash their lights to send a…Continue
Hope looks like Lori Lightfoot.
She's a woman of color...
She's a member of the LGBTQ community...
She's served as the President of the civilian oversight board of the Chicago Police Department...
She's served as a clerk…Continue
Just like this:
Arrogant, elitist assholes who run/support the Democratic Party (and who support their fellow arrogant, elitist assholes for President) telling…Continue
Don't think so? Listen to what she says at around minute 28.00.
Once you listen, then kindly explain to me what else Warren meant when she said,
"...you couldn’t keep pushing harder because over time realities are…Continue
The above title is a direct quote from Tamir Pardo, who was the director of Mossad from 2011 to 2016. It reflects the beliefs of many/most of the leaders of Israel.
The reason those above cited words are important is two-fold.
The first is the regimented, "professional grade" retaliation against Representative Ilhan Omar for turning over the rock…Continue
You just need to keep allowing elitist, corporately owned, neolibs like Pelosi, Schumer and Perez to keep running the Democratic party.
The ENTIRE left political spectrum and one hell of a lot of Independents will vote third party or stay at home because of crap like this. We have no ability to change the Democratic Party because most of us are not members (nor want to be any longer) and they refused to listen to…Continue
I just read this (in response to one of Ron Powell's comments):
"How do you propose to get masses of White people to make the necessary adjustments?
Understand that I am by no means implying that I don’t already participate in that…
I did a lot of reading yesterday.
I read everything from "the Republicans support the anti-Christ" to "the Democrats ARE anti-Christ" to the rhetorical "the Greens are not our liberal allies".
Ninety-nine percent of what I read was a load of tosh. …Continue
I just read a message that a friend of LemonPulp and mine has passed on. Her passing broke my heart.
You see, "Our Katie" was one of the sweetest, most caring and funniest people we knew.
She also suffered from anorexia.
Her obituary didn't…Continue
