How an Occupy ICE Activist and DACA Recipient Was Deported for Tweeting
Ryan Devereaux | theintercept.com | 2019-11-02
Sergio Salazar awoke around 8 a.m. on a strip of grass outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Antonio. It had been a heady summer for the 18-year-old. President Donald Trump, as part of his ongoing border crackdown, had separated thousands of migrant children from their parents. Viewing the policy as the latest in a string of assaults on immigrant communities, Salazar and his friends organized an occupation outside the ICE office in the midsummer heat. | In the weeks that followed, Occupy ICE SATX was visited by both TV crews and a raiding party of masked neo-Nazis, who stormed through the t…

The Empire, Trump and Intra-Ruling Class Conflict
Gary Olson | dissidentvoice.org | 2019-11-02
Over the past few months President Trump has unilaterally by Tweet and telephone begun to dismantle the U.S. military's involvement in the Middle East. The irony is amazing, because in a general overarching narrative sense, this is what the marginalized antiwar movement has been trying to do for decades.1 Prof. Harry Targ, in his important …

Twitter's ban on political advertisement: A new move to censor the internet
wsws.org | 2019-11-01

Trump says Melania 'wouldn't cry her eyes out' if he were shot — joke explodes on Twitter
rt.com | 2019-10-31
US President Donald Trump has, apparently, confirmed that his wife Melania would not be moved to tears if he happened to get shot — and Twitter has quickly taken it as a window into the first couple's much-discussed marriage. | Speaking to a Republican audience at a private fundraiser at the Trump Hotel in Washington on Tuesday, Trump brought up the 2017 shooting of House minority whip Steve Scalise. | Trump recalled that, when he visited Scalise in hospital, the politician's wife had "cried her eyes out" — a reaction he would not, apparently, expect from Melania — or most wives, for that matte…

rt.com | 2019-10-31
A former regional manager has sued Starbucks for racial discrimination, claiming she was fired because she was white after two black men were arrested for "trespassing" at a Philadelphia location she oversaw. | Shannon Phillips, a 13-year Starbucks employee, has sued the chain, alleging she was fired for being white after video of a seemingly racially-biased arrest at one of the stores she managed went viral and triggered mass outrage against the coffee behemoth. If she was not white, Phillips charged in the suit filed in the US District Court of New Jersey earlier this week, she would still have her job, havi…

'Hard-hitting journalism': Reporter FACT-CHECKS blatantly photoshopped image of 'American hero dog' being honored by Trump
rt.com | 2019-10-30
A muckraking reporter was ferociously mocked after he attempted to fact-check when Donald Trump tweeted a clearly photoshopped image of himself putting a medal on the neck of the dog who helped take down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. | Quick off the mark, Voice of America reporter Steve Herman tweeted that he had "requested details" from the White House, noting that there was "no such canine event" on Trump's schedule, though there was a planned Medal of Honor ceremony set for later in the day. A mystery for the ages, indeed. | AMERICAN HERO! pic.twitter.com/XCCa2sGfsZ– Dona…

"You Won't Take Down Lies or You Will?": AOC Grills Facebook's Zuckerberg on Lies in Political Ads
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-10-25
This week, as Facebook said it will not fact check political ads or hold politicians to its usual content standards, the social media giant's CEO Mark Zuckerberg was grilled for more than five hours by lawmakers on Capitol Hill on the company's policy of allowing politicians to lie in political advertisements, as well as its role in facilitating election interference and housing discrimination. We play highlights from New York Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ohio Congressmember Joyce Beatty, who asked Zuckerberg about Facebook's record on civil rights, which she called "appalling and disgusting."

Rashida Tlaib to Mark Zuckerberg: Why Haven't You Stopped Hate Groups From Organizing on Facebook?
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-10-25
We feature more highlights from the five-hour grilling of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week on Capitol Hill, where Michigan Congressmember Rashida Tlaib said she feared that far-right hate groups were using Facebook event pages to incite violence against Muslims and other minorities — including death threats directed at her office. Tlaib asked to be seen not only as a Congresswoman, but also as "a mother that is raising two Muslim boys in this pretty dark time in our world." Meanwhile, California Congressmember Katie Porter pinned Zuckerberg down on Facebook's privacy policies. "You are arguing in fede…
