Since the George Floyd protests began last week, they have since morphed into a much broader movement which is now exposing a problem this country has suffered from for a long time. The system of law enforcement in this country has morphed into a militarized standing army, preying on the poor, and rife with corruption. Naturally, people are pissed.
There is a lot of information about the murder of George Floyd, the man who was killed by a police officer in broad daylight, that the mainstream media is intentionally hiding from the public while they ask you to look only at the color of the skin of those involved. A piece of relevant information they just so casually left out of their race-baiting broadcasts was that Floyd's family conveniently hired the same coroner as Jeffrey Epstein.
President Trump’s decision earlier this month to assassinate Iran’s top military general on Iraqi soil – over the objection of the Iraqi government – has damaged the US relationship with its “ally” Iraq and set the region on the brink of war. Iran’s measured response – a few missiles fired on an Iraqi base after advance warning was given – is the only reason the US is not mired in another Middle East war.
Whether you want it or not, the war with Iran has already begun. It is kind of sad that the pundits on our cable news channels are so clueless about what has happened. They seem to think that there is still a debate about whether we will go to war with Iran or not, but meanwhile, the Iranians believe that the war has already started.
Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced a resolution to limit President Donald Trump's power to initiate more military action in Iran. Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said this will limit the president's ability to "wage war" arguing that Congress must prevent the White House from endangering American lives.
