Freedom Rider: Do Americans Have No Shame?

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Putting aside the lack of any proof of Russian interference in U.S. elections, Americans have some nerve complaining about outside meddling when they have violated the sovereign rights of much of the planet. Americans owe the world heartfelt acts of contrition. “There ought to be a march of apology from Americans to people in Grenada, Haiti, Honduras, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, and yes in Russia too.”

Freedom Rider: Obama and Clinton Brought Slavery to Libya

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

According to international observers, “African migrants are being openly bought and sold in Libya” – yet another consequence of “R2P,” the pernicious doctrine of “Responsibility to Protect.” No one is protecting Black Africans from the bestial forces let loose by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Libya in 2011. “America’s first black president is responsible for slavery taking place in a once prosperous African country.”

Freedom Rider: Trump Joins Democrats in the War Party

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The Trump who upset the War Party with his stated opposition to regime change and willingness to lessen tensions with Russia has combusted in orange fireballs of war. In the wake of the attack on Syria, Bernie Sanders “proves himself to be a phony progressive, supporting the empire while claiming there is some difference between himself and his once and future rival, Clinton.” And, the pink pussy hat crowd? “They aren’t resisting anything at all.”

Freedom Rider: Black Misleaders Act Like Republicans

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Black politics in Baltimore has sunk to the very bottom of the sewer, with mayor Catherine Pugh’s veto of a rise in the minimum wage. “Black people have no reason to rejoice with the Pughs of the world in office, because they are just as eager to act against their interests if powerful people give them marching orders.” Push is “a typical member of the black misleadership class, who live off of the crumbs of corporate tribute.”

Freedom Rider: Is Trump the DNC Hacker?

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

If the Democrats are intent on living at the Vast Conspiracy Hotel, they ought to widen their list of suspects in the leaking of embarrassing Democratic documents. Roger Stone and Nigel Farage -- men much closer to Donald Trump’s brand of politics than Vladimir Putin -- have had curious contacts with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Stone is “the champion Republican Party dirty trickster,” while Farange, the British rightwinger, is a friend of Trump.

Freedom Rider: Hillary Returns

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

How long should one stay in rehab after losing to Donald Trump? In Hillary Clinton’s case, forever. Clinton’s recent “coming back out” party in Scranton, Pennsylvania, shows that “there will be no deviation from the failed strategies which put Trump in the White House.” With nothing else to offer (except war and more war) she’s still running against Trump. “If Trump didn’t exist the Democratic Party would have had to invent him.”

Freedom Rider: When America Interfered in a Russian Election

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The U.S. is the unchallenged champion of hijacking, fixing and subverting elections around the world. On every inhabitable continent – from Italy to Iran to Accra to Tegucigalpa -- Washington has stolen people’s rights to elected leaders of their choice. Only two decades ago, Bill Clinton and his operatives were busy stealing Russia’s first post-Soviet elections. But, U.S. corporate media seem to have forgotten such inconvenient facts.

Freedom Rider: Trump and Russia, the Perfect Lie

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The latest New York Times article is proof that outgoing president Obama “was looking not for intelligence he knew didn’t exist, but anything that could be used against Trump and his team.” When it comes to intrigue, Donald Trump is grossly outmatched by the Democrats, the spooks and the corporate media. “Team Obama has the most adept spies in the world while Trump has his son-in-law and untested staff who are completely out of their league.”

Freedom Rider: Liberals Expose Themselves

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Democrats and phony progressives talk a lot about mounting a great “resistance” to Donald Trump, yet gave Barack Obama a blank check to pursue much the same policies. Trump will find it difficult to exceed Obama in deportations, and damn near impossible to best him in bailing out corporations or attacking other countries. Trump’s rise has caused the Democrats to show their true colors as the party of war and the (deep) national security state.

Freedom Rider: "Resist Trump, Resist the Democrats"

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Any “resistance” to Trump that allies itself with Democrats, is futile. The Democrats are “unprincipled scoundrels” who “have no desire to move away from their corporate sugar daddies.” If the same people that now declare themselves foes of Trumpism “spend time wondering if they should back Cory ‘the hooker’ Booker or Elizabeth Warren in 2020, or ponder who should run the Democratic National Committee, they aren’t resisting anything.”

Freedom Rider: Trump is the Less Effective Evil

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Donald Trump’s predecessors, Bush and Obama, paved the way for President Chito’s persecution of people from Syria, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, and Iraq, all of which “have been attacked with military action, proxy wars and sanctions.” Trump simply continues a U.S. policy that “makes countries unlivable and then tells fleeing victims that the door is shut.” Anti-Trumpism is grossly inadequate. The whole system is evil -- Democrats included.

Freedom Rider: Democrats Attack Trump from the Right

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The Democratic Party has devolved into complete irrationality and irrelevance, sucking its Black followers into the idiotic abyss. “Years of capitulation to corporate interests and to Barack Obama have killed black politics,” and turned the Congressional Black Caucus into mindless CIA groupies who “use the phrase ‘intelligence community’ as if they were hypnotized cult members. Democrats carry signs that threaten war, and call it “protest.”

Freedom Rider: No Tears for John Lewis

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

John Lewis has parlayed his 1965 beating at the hands of Alabama police into a phony sainthood, and “now exemplifies everything that is wrong with the Congressional Black Caucus, the Democratic Party and the black misleadership class.” He “parrots every word” of the CIA in blaming Russia for Hillary Clinton’s defeat. There are many reasons to boycott Donald Trump’s inauguration, but “Russia” is the only one mentioned by Lewis, the party hack.

Freedom Rider: Contradiction in the Time of Trump

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The cacophony of pre-inaugural madness is full of lies against Russia, wild exaggerations about Obama’s accomplishments, and a weird and shameful alliance of so-called “progressives” and the CIA. Anti-Trump protests turn out to be props for useless Democrats. The contradictions of late stage capitalism abound -- which should be the cue for genuine radicals to fight both corporate parties. That means kicking the Democrats “while they are down.”

Freedom Rider: Obama’s Propaganda Gift to Trump

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Political hysteria has its ironies. President Obama has just signed into law a new office of government propaganda that is intended to prevent any warming of relations with Russia under a Trump administration. But, President Trump will appoint the head of the office. The Democrats apparently expect Trump to cooperate with their plan to undermine his foreign policy, “silence dissent and create a network of propaganda partners” to badmouth Russia.

Freedom Rider: Syria, Russia and American Desperation

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Legions of people will protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. The Democratic rank and file “are anxious about racism, immigration, Islamophobia, judicial appointees and voter suppression,” but their leaders have a different agenda. War Democrats and Republicans care only about maintaining imperialism -- through lies and repression. The bipartisan War Party is desperate to continue its regime change policies and foil improved relations with Russia.

Freedom Rider: Fighting for Southern Human Rights

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The South, where more than half of the Black U.S. population lives, has based its economic appeal on the stinginess of its social safety net, the relative poverty of its people, and the savagery of its criminal justice system. Capitalism truly turns morality upside down. Mississippi is considered good for business because its “retrograde history of slavery and Jim Crow segregation creates a compliant and largely non-unionized source of labor.”

Freedom Rider: Black Fear in the Age of Trump

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Having accepted the unacceptable and defended the indefensible when it came from Democrats, Blacks must now confront the white people’s president, Donald Trump. As in dark days of the past, we must cast off fear and cast out Black misleaders who are loyal only to themselves. “Creating political crisis should be the order of the day. That has always been the game changer, not necessarily getting Democrats into office instead of Republicans.”
