For the record and what it's worth. Unlike Trump, Obama did not have an official policy of separating families, buuut....

'Comparisons between Trump and Obama on immigration usually focus on deportations of unauthorized immigrants living in the US. Trump has been rapidly expanding enforcement, but the numbers are still comparable to Obama’s first term. (Obama holds the record for deporting more immigrants than any president, with more than 2 million deportations over eight years — though he scaled back enforcement in the last two years of his administration.)

But the effects of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy for prosecuting illegal entry this spring — the separation of families as a matter of standard government practice for about six weeks, and now (thanks to Trump’s executive order) a coming court fight over the indefinite detention of families seeking asylum — are reminiscent, for those of us who’ve been following immigration for a while, of what the Obama administration did in 2014.

The comparison to Obama’s policies is especially relevant now that the Trump administration is seeking to keep families in immigration detention for weeks or months. The reason that Trump can’t do that under a current judicial order is that the courts stepped in to stop Obama from doing it.

Now Trump is trying to remove the shackles placed on his predecessor."

The billionaires are getting more billions, the poor is getting poorer, the environment is getting more polluted, the zio-nazists in the White House and in the Middle East are getting nastier, the fascists are getting hasher, the children are getting separated from the parents..
-What's to be done? That's the question we all know the problems.

And shamelessly... Lies have become her second nature. I am not sure how she can live with it when the podium is gone and Trump is sent to the dustbin of history.

“I should’ve died in my 20s. I became successful in my 40s. I became a dad in my 50s. I feel like I’ve stolen a car — a really nice car — and I keep looking in the rearview mirror for flashing lights,” he said in an interview with Biography.com.

RIP.

The fact that the word IMAGINE appears in this article about 12 times is very telling.

The US ain't leaving the world scene.

"...imagine that the Saudis and Gulf emirates come to their senses and realize that they will not push Iran into oblivion or overthrow the regime and must cut some kind of deal—and that the Iranians realize that their own interests require some stability, over conflict."

This one requires some serious imagination.

Trump is basically threaten to turn Iran into another Iraq, and we're fantasizing about an American withdrawal from the world scene. In. Your. Dreams.

ZIONAZISM,
Word of the day as defined in Urban Dictionary:
"practical mix of the words 'Zionist' and 'Nazi' to compare the fascist mentality. The current zionazi ideology has developed as a result of the Nazi atrocities committed during the early part of the 20th century, and seems to have adopted many of its fascist ideas of ethnic cleansing, especially in Israel. In this holocaust memorial state and its surrounding areas (occupied Palestinian territories) you will find confirmation of racism being practiced against the Arabic speaking populations - even those who were born citizens of the state of Israel are regarded as second-class citizens. Segregation is the plan as is shown by the separation/isolation barrier (more of a segregation wall) designed to 'keep out suicide bombers/terrorists' or more likely to keep Muslims and Jews separated through apartheid of the former Palestinians by stealing their land.
The current Zionazism practices are eliminating Palestinian people, through the act of ethnic cleansing."

Is the "rest of the world" really responsible for what happened to the Palestinian Arabs?
I don't think so. The Arabs have through various blunders since the 1930s made themselves an unmarketable commodity, effectively forestalling the world community from rescuing them. Meanwhile, Israel has established the kind of society the world powers can relate to and work with.

By far and away the US is once again in the pole position. And oh, check out who is outspending everyone in the ME. Not even close. The arms industry is good for business, but terrible for humanity and the planet.

Britain's behind it all, eh?
The narrative is they gave up the 13 colonies of America in 1783, and then from 1945-1980 basically handed their empire over to a new American-led order. But did they really? Maybe not. What is not in doubt that London remains the centre of global finance, which is interesting. It also means a lot of important people make important decisions with global implications in that city.

Remember, Britain took the MEK off the terrorist list long before the US and EU.

Something going on there?

A good day to be happy. Shakira cancels trip to Israel for its fascist policies towards the indigenous natives of Palestine and the cancellation of Roseanne Barr's show, a racist pro Trump Zionazi and anti Muslim propaganda show on network TV.
