The Trump administration of separating children from their parents is not a novel idea. It is not a new thing exercised by the federal government.

Levi Rickert, Native News Online <http://nativenewsonline.net>

15 Jun 2018 | There is a lot of news these days about the Trump administration separating children from their parents at the U.S. border to Mexico. On Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions even invoked the Bible to bolster the federal government’s justification of its zero-tolerance immigration policy that uses the tactic to separate children from their parents by placing them in holding units.

In a speech yesterday, the attorney general cited the Bible:  “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes.”

Part 2: Separating Families? It’s What the US has Always Done

Our systemic injustice, racism, and implicit bias of white supremacy are … a collective problem. And the solution is … to call upon all Americans to be better humans.

Mark Charles, Native News Online

June 15, 2018 | There is a crisis going on at our borders. Children are being separated from their families. Mothers are being separated from their babies. Many Americans are beginning to take notice and cry out, but the problem is not getting resolved. Democrats are blaming Republicans who in turn are blaming Democrats. And Christians from both sides of the aisle are quoting their Bibles to either force change or justify the situation. But most disturbing, are the voices declaring, “This is not who we are.”  It is for those voices that I share five excerpts of American history.

Slave Trade

“Austin Bearse, a white man from Massachusetts…worked on a Massachusetts-based ship that transported enslaved people from Charleston to New Orleans…The ship sometimes transported as many as 80 people to plantations in New Orleans. Before setting out, Bearse said, ‘We used to allow the relatives and friends of the slaves to come on board and stay all night with their friends before the vessel sailed. In the morning it used to be my business to pull off the hatches and warn them that it was time to separate, and the shrieks and cries at these times were enough to makeanybody’sheart ache.’”

“Reflections from the Hogan.”

Part 1: There’s So Much You Don’t Know About Brett Kavanaugh

https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/07/10/opinion/10tue1/merlin_141017487_0a310f29-5380-44df-964b-0cb385d5b498-jumbo.jpg?quality=90&auto=webpKelsey Wroten

And you probably won’t until it’s too late.

The Editorial Board, New York (NY) Times

July 9, 2018 | So what can the American people hope to know in the days ahead about Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s latest candidate for the Supreme Court, who will very shortly hold one of the most powerful unelected jobs in government and wield profound influence over their daily lives? An awful lot, and yet, at the same time, so alarmingly little.

First, the awful lot: Judge Kavanaugh would shift the balance of constitutional jurisprudence to the right, creating a solid right-wing majority on the court possibly until the second half of the 21st century. While the somewhat unpredictable Justice Anthony Kennedy once served as the fulcrum for the court, that role will now go to Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., a far more ideological conservative.

The NY Times Editorial Board represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher. It is separate from the newsroom and the Op-Ed section.

  • Americans who care about the court’s future and its role in the American system of government need to turn to the political process to restore the protections the new majority will take away, and to create an environment where radical judges can’t be nominated or confirmed.
  • No more softball. Political handlers have taken the wrong message from past confirmation hearings.

Jeffrey Peck, Washington (DC) Post / Minneapolis (MN) StarTribune

July 10, 2018 |  ‘My job is to apply and enforce the law.” “I will approach any case with an open mind.” I will give “no hints, no forecasts, no previews.” These nice-sounding bromides from nominees — those selected by both Republican and Democratic presidents — tell us next to nothing. Maxims and slogans leave senators entirely in the dark.

To make an informed decision, senators must understand the nominee’s judicial philosophy and views on basic constitutional principles. Otherwise, they would be mere rubber stamps and violate their constitutional duty.

Jeffrey Peck was general counsel and staff director of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987 to 1992. He worked for then-Chairman Joseph R. Biden on the Bork, Kennedy, Souter and Clarence Thomas nominations to the Supreme Court.

Let us begin with the family separation issue. The separation of children from immigrant/refugee/asylum parents has caused such public outcry that President Trump has backed off his policy and signed an executive order terminating family separation.

02 July 2018 | It’s been a few days now, but the shock of Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement hasn’t abated a bit. This is partly because of the ghastly coming ramifications, more on which later. But it’s also because I honestly didn’t think Kennedy would allow Donald Trump to name his successor.

I thought he had more respect for the United States of America than to allow this corrupt gangster who’s almost certainly never read a Supreme Court opinion in his life to name his successor. Yes, Kennedy is conservative, so to that extent it makes sense that he’d want a Republican president to make the call, and maybe it’s just that simple. But whatever his motivation, Kennedy has altered and destroyed his legacy.

Part 1: What Are You Actually Celebrating This Fourth of July?

What if the entire system — elections, protections, legislation, adjudication, militarization, all of it — were rigged beyond the people’s ability to reform it?

Claire Bernish, Mint Press News

July 4, 2018 |What if people, sickened by tyrannical control, threw off the shackles of bloated governance in favor of leading themselves? What if the erosion of fundamental freedoms — guaranteed not by a document, but by being human — were actually intolerable as so much grumbling intimated? What if government intrusion into people’s bedrooms, communications, sovereign corporeal decisions — of vice, health, and more — means of subsistence, financial choices, business, education, and innumerable other aspects, were utterly unacceptable?

What if even the revolutionary roots, the foundation, of the nation were soaked in the blood of countless individuals and peoples — a likely sign no tangible freedom would last beyond lip service?

Claire Bernish is an activist and journalist who focuses on government and corporate corruption, freedom of speech, censorship, law enforcement accountability, and human rights. Her work can be seen on TheFreeThoughtProject.com, theAntiMedia.org, and multiple other outlets.



Part 2: Put Away The Flags by Howard Zinn

Howard Zinn, Dandelion Salad

https://farm7.staticflickr.com/6235/6327281448_3ecaaffef7.jpgJuly 4, 2017 | On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.

Is not nationalism — that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder — one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?

https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/1600/1*rFjhE0lo4_8LtMpZtUoEGQ.pngToday America is celebrating your lateral promotion from housekeeping to laundry staff. 

‪Caitlin Johnstone‬, Medium

July 4, 2017 | Today America celebrates its liberation from the shackles of the British Crown and the beginning of its transition into corporatist oligarchy, which is a lot like celebrating your lateral promotion from housekeeping to laundry staff. Fireworks will be set off, hot dogs will be consumed, and a strange yellow concoction known as Mountain Dew will be imbibed by patriotic high-fiving Yankees eager to celebrate their hard-fought freedom to funnel their taxes into corporate welfare instead of to the King.

Spark up a bottle rocket for me, America! In trouncing King George’s red-coated goon squad, you made it possible for the donor class to slowly buy up more and more control of your shiny new government, allowing for a system of rule determined not by royal bloodlines, but by wealth bloodlines. Now instead of your national affairs being determined by some gilded schmuck across the pond, they are determined by the billionaire owners of multinational corporations and banks. These oligarchs have shored up their rule to such an extent that congressional candidates who outspend their opponents are almost certain to win, and a 2014 Princeton study found that ordinary Americans have no influence whatsoever over the behavior of their government while the will of the wealthy has a direct influence on US policy and legislation.‪

June 3,2018 | The World economy is still suffering from the worst crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Around the world, the consequences have been devastating–jobs wiped out, exploitation intensified for those who remain employed, social services eliminated or privatized.

Welcome to 21st-century capitalism, a topsy-turvy world in which poverty for many and unimaginable wealth for a tiny few stand side by side. But unlike in earlier times, when slave and feudal societies weren’t efficient enough to adequately feed, clothe and house everyone in society, today’s crisis is the result of an overabundance of material goods, not the lack of them.
