    Assata, JZ and Beyonce: The Connection

    Domestic law enforcement is at odds” with President Obama because of his “new approach to Latin America and the war on drugs,” said Dhoruba bin Wahad, former Black Panther and co-founder of the Black Liberation Army. According to bin Wahad, who spent 19 years in prison on political charges, Obama is seeking to “calm the shift in power to the Left in Latin America” in his second term. “JZ going to Cuba, getting a visa, was not coincidental,” he said. The recent JZ-Beyonce “trip was about opening up Cuba” to U.S. tourism, “to disrupt and undo the Cuban revolution.” Exiled former Black Panther Assata Shakur’s elevation to number one domestic terrorist on the FBI list “represents the disgruntlement of U.S. law enforcement” with this process.

    The Betrayal of the Black Misleadership Class

    The Black political class that emerged from the tumult of the Sixties became eager partners with corporate neoliberalism, said Jay Arena, author of Driven from New Orleans: How Non-Profits Betray Public Housing and Promote Privatization. The first generation of the post-Sixties Black political class “emerges just at the time when the national state begins their neoliberal austerity and privatization agenda – and they embraced that,” said Arena, a veteran activist and professor of sociology at the College of Staten Island, New York. Many Black politicians and non-profit organizations collaborated in the dismantling of public housing in New Orleans and cities across the nation.

    Superpower Woes in Syria
    “The United States, and any other imperialist nation on earth, has no right” to interfere with the internal affairs of Syria, said Jeff Mackler, national secretary of Socialist Action. Washington’s ambitions in Syria have been frustrated because “they don’t have any forces on the ground that they can trust to defend their interests.” The U.S. faced a similar situation in Iraq, and has no reliable allies on the ground in Afghanistan, either, said Mackler.

    Sister Shakur - Why Stir Up the Activists of the 60's

    In all of this we have to also ask why are they stirring up the activism of the 60's?  Why all of sudden?  I am sure they knew putting Sister Shakur and the mysterious death of Brother Malcolm's grandson would.  Are they baiting us to start the activism of the 60's so they can justify the use of their war weapons of massed destruction that have come home to roost on the American people?

    I do not doubt or question the reasoning in this broadcast.  I just think there may be additional motives.  The Activists of the 60's realized that they had to go back to college and seek employment.  That curtailed the Movements of the 60's. Now those activists, myself included are retired or soon will be.  We will no longer be beholding to employment.  The silence....
