Freedom Rider: Crazy, Greedy White Men

by BAR Editor and Senior Columnist Margaret Kimberley

The Bush administration is a putrid swamp of career criminals, who operate with impunity both inside and outside the boundaries of the executive branch of government. Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld camps in offices just outside the Pentagon, an “unpaid” consultant with seven paid staffers and full access to “secrets” he may have invented in the first place. Vice President Dick Cheney’s career is built on mountains of mega-lying over decades. In the Bush world, criminal insanity is eminently rational.

Freedom Rider: Top Ten Questions for Would Be Presidents

by BAR Editor and Senior Columnist Margaret Kimberley


Although only Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, among Democratic presidential hopefuls, can rightfully claim to be a progressive, the rest of the pack will eventually have to face scrutiny from the party's grassroots "base." Under no circumstances should the political evaluation process be left to shallow corporate media and celebrity chatter. Ms. Kimberley has assembled a list of ten questions with which to challenge the candidates, ranging from Katrina to Iraq to national health care.

Freedom Rider: America the Stupid

by BAR Editor and Senior Columnist Margaret Kimberley

The chairman of one of the most powerful committees in
the Texas legislature thinks the sun and planets revolve around the Earth. A
U.S. congressman cites Davy Crockett at the Alamo to justify the Iraq war.
America's collective IQ is fatally undermined by the worship of white
supremacy, religious fundamentalism and capitalism - a core belief in "manifest
destiny" that fuels aggressive wars against other nations and opposes reality,
itself. The problem isn't just the Bush gang and the corporate media: it's the
people, stupid!

Freedom Rider: Medical Apartheid

by BAR Editor and Senior Columnist Margaret Kimberley

TuskegeePatientBlack and brown children continue to be used as medical guinea pigs in the United States - the clearest evidence that white supremacist ideology is alive and well. From the gruesome experiments on Black slaves in the pre-Emancipation South, to the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study, to drug "research" in the present day, American society remains all too willing to treat Black minds and bodies as less than human.

Freedom Rider: Racism, Fascism at CNN and ABC

by BAR Editor and Senior Columnist Margaret KimberleyBurningwcrowd

Racist and fascist speech is alive and well, transmitted over the airwaves and cables of major U.S. media. Hosts who call for the burning alive, torture and lynching of minorities and leftists are paid big bucks to spread hate, while bloggers who ‘out’ the culprits can be shut down.

Freedom Rider: Phony Terror and Black America

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

The Bush men's scheme to conquer the world, starting with Iraq, is dead in the water, having been thwarted by the Iraqi resistance. However, the domestic component of the offensive continues to roll up a body count of hapless "terror" suspects who, in fact, have hatched no real "plots" nor have any capability of carrying out actual attacks. Entrapment and sting operations, utilizing criminals as agentFRterrorplotLogo provocateurs, are designed to make the U.S. a "State of Fear." True to historical form, the feds ensnare the "usual suspects" - Blacks and Muslims - while leaving Timothy McVeigh's white conspiratorial brethren free to pursue their murderous missions.
