New Developments in the World.

Today, Trump has withdrawn from the Iranian Nuclear deal. For this to occur, Trump shows that he is not only a liar, but a coward. The Iranian deal has worked. Iran has no nuclear weapons and the deal has strong mechanisms in place to cause stability involving nuclear regulation. Trump has broken away from international cooperation and acts in imperialistic narcissism. Trump is not only crass and profane. He is a person who lectures others on strength, but he has no strength in terms of his integrity. No one should be surprised at this move. The liar said that the deal is disastrous which is not. What he did is to show his signal that he is provoking war against Iran. John Bolton is the national security advisor and has advocating military attacks against Iran. He has promoted this ludicrous proposal for years. Barack Obama is right to criticize Trump's reckless error. Trump personally has hatred for Obama, because of the obvious reason. I don't have to spell it out. He wants to erase Obama's legacy because of the clear reason of jealousy and racism. Trump has called white supremacists and neo-Confederates fine people. Plus, he said that a Mexican American judge can't be unbiased because of his Mexican heritage. That is an evil statement making Trump a total racist and white supremacist. Many of his cabinet members are war hawks. Netanyahu (who supports kicking out black migrants and is a war monger himself) supports this policy of Trump. Netanyahu is being investigated in many scandals. I have no respect for Trump at all. The U.S. is a deal breaker by this news today. Trump obviously not doesn't care about black people, he doesn't care about Palestinian human rights either. Seven countries or entities signed the agreement. Everyone knows that Iran isn't perfect, but America negotiated with imperfect nations for decades. That hypocritical resident in the White House wants a nuclear deal with North Korea, but reneged on a deal with Iran as it relates to nuclear issues. That is why voting matters. Trump is a threat to humanity.

Today is the time when there is the confirmation hearing of Gina Haspel. She is trying to be the next director of the CIA. Trump has supported waterboarding and torture in general which is in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution. Joe Manchin from West Virginia has voted for previous Trump nominee in a disgraceful fashion. Haspel once tried to withdraw her nomination because of the controversy, but Trump has promoted her regardless. Trump is a crass, authoritarian person who wants to destroy progressive policies in American society. After 9/11, Haspel ran torture sites overseas in Thailand. It was nicknamed "Cat's Eye." That was the location where Abu Zubaydah and Abd el-Rahim al-Nashiri were taken after being kidnapped by CIA operatives. Both men were waterboarded at the site—Zubaydah 83 times—and were subjected to sleep deprivation, confinement in small boxes and being repeatedly slammed into a wall. The torture left both of them severely damaged, both psychologically and physically, while producing no known intelligence. She was ordered by Jose Rodriguez, the director of the National Clandestine Service, to videotape the torture sessions too back in 2005. Many Republicans and Democrats support Haspel as many in both parties respect the status quo and token continuity than justice and human rights. Trump has tweeted his support for Haspel, stating on Monday that “in these very dangerous times, we have the most qualified person, a woman, who Democrats want out because she is too tough on terror.” He repeated the “tough on terror” theme on Tuesday, adding that “The CIA wants her to lead them into America’s bright and glorious future.” Democratic operatives do have ties to the CIA, so many CIA agents are supporting Haspel. The CIA for decades have been complicit in voter fraud overseas, backing fascist dictators, and doing war crimes like Operation Phoenix. We know what the CIA is all about. Therefore, the Trump regime is advancing debased views disgracefully.

Willie Mays is one of the greatest players in baseball history. Today, he is 87 year old. He was born in Westfield, Alabama. When he was in high school, he played football and basketball as well. Willie Mays played in the Negro League before he came into the MLB. He played for both the San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets too in his later career. By 1954, he won the World Series. Mays is known as a man who traveled the world, is a people person, and has a blessed life. He continues to motivate others and inspire present and future generations. He is a Hall of Famer and a man whose accomplishments always makes the point that baseball is a game with monumental reach. Sister Gabourey Sidibe is now 35 years old and she was born in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York City, New York. She is an actress and a black woman who continues to express her life in many ways. She is a beautiful black woman who is the living representation of how we have every to follow our dreams. She was raised in Harlem, NYC. Her mother, Alice Tan Ridley, is an American R&B and gospel singer who appeared on the fifth season of America's Got Talent, on June 15, 2010. Her father, Ibnou Sidibe, is from Senegal and is a cab driver. She has been criticized by the naysayers and she ignored the haters to achieve massive success in showing many different roles in TV shows and movies. She is the living refutation of both the evils of colorism and lookism. She has won many awards from NAACP Image Awards to Black Reel Awards. We all salute her strength and her inspirational qualities.

It is true that those who use murder and brutal oppression are total evil hypocrites. The genocide of Native Americans is truly despicable and have no justification. Thanksgiving as participated in America has a bloody history and people shouldn't omit its real origin from New England. That is why religious freedom must be expressed excluding brutal mistreatment of other human beings. In other words, people should never be allowed to do what they want whenever they want. True freedom is bounded under justice and humane treatment. No rational person celebrates the actions of murders and imperialists like Columbus or murderous Purtians. Also, I don't celebrate ancient Roman emperors who slaughtered early Christians either. Those, who use nihilism and oppression, obviously aren't using true freedom, but criminal actions. That is why you have to have religious freedom and the separation of church and state. Both concepts abhor religious persecution and it opposes murder of anyone. It is clear that regardless of someone's creed, that person shouldn't be slaughtered. One mistake among religious extremists is that they believe in the myth that you must use authoritarian coercion against someone's will to convince that human being of something. The truth is that person has the right to their own conscience to believe in what ever creed that he or she desires freely.

Yesterday was the 73 years after VE Day. VE Day is the victory of the Allied forces against Nazi Germany. It was very important time when the fascist enemy was defeated in Europe. The Nazis murdered millions of Jewish people and other human beings. The Allied forces of America, the Soviet Union, the UK, and other nations worked together to travel into Germany in order for the victory against the Nazis to be made into a reality. Men and women served overseas heroically during World War II. They were in all branches of services. They fought Nazi fascists, they sent mail, they rescued people, and they saw the vicious nature of the evil Holocaust (or the Shoah in Hebrew). VE Day wasn't the end of World War II, but it was the beginning of the end of the most bloodiest war in human history. Today, fascism hasn't ended in our time. We know who the fascists are domestically and internationally. That is why we not only honor the sacrifice of Allied heroes, but we in our time continue to fight to defeat fascism in our time too.
