Not sure whether to label it #imperialism #oligarchy (his sponsors) or just #racism (Chinaphobia). Either way, it's a bought 'voice'. Corrupt.

Thank you Forward:

"She genuinely holds radical, risky views on all aspects of American foreign policy. She is opposed to violence against civilians in Latin America, in Yemen, and yes, in Gaza too. She believes the United States should end sanctions everywhere — not just against Iran, but against North Korea too. Say what you want about her foreign policy, but she is a peacenik and skeptic of American empire—consistently."

The US territory, including its colonies

Were Japan’s targets considered “the United States”? Legally, they were indisputably US territory. But would the public see them that way? What if Roosevelt’s audience didn’t care that Japan had attacked the Philippines or Guam? Polls taken slightly before the attack show that few in the continental US supported a military defense of those remote territories.

But it is also missing Puerto Rico, which, although not a state, has been part of the country since 1899. When have you ever seen a map of the US that had Puerto Rico on it? Or American Samoa, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, the Northern Marianas or any of the other smaller islands that the US has annexed over the years?

The racism that had pervaded the country since slavery also engulfed the territories. Like African Americans, colonial subjects were denied the vote, deprived of the rights of full citizens, called racial epithets, subjected to dangerous medical experiments and used as sacrificial pawns in war.

Vera Lynn - There'll always be an England

Next to Cill Cais - the post-Brexit hymn to sing once England is out of the European Union - this has to be sung by all of us to comfort the morons from the Isle of The Apes. I mean, it's no use of laughing about them when they are about to injure us as well. Thus, why not sing this lovely little song for them, or together with them? I mean, there'll be enough to laugh about in the further future, when the economy has settled itself again, to this new situation.

Western Media Fall in Lockstep for Cheap Trump/Rubio Venezuela Aid PR Stunt
If only there were some precedent, for Venezuela's odd refusal of perfectly tainted aid...

"Rejecting aid out of political reasons is not unusual. When the hurricane Katrina in 2005 caused huge damage along the U.S. gulf coast, a number of countries offered humanitarian and technical aid. U.S. President Bush accepted help from some countries, but rejected aid from other ones:

'An offer of aid from the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, which included two mobile hospital units, 120 rescue and first aid experts and 50 tonnes of food, has been rejected, according to the civil rights leader, Jesse Jackson.
'Mr Jackson said the offer from the Venezuelan leader, whom he recently met, included 10 water purification plants, 18 power generation plants and 20 tonnes of bottled water.'

"The U.S. intent to establish a 'humanitarian aid' supply line into Venezuela has a secondary purpose. Such aid is the ideal cover for weapon supplies. In the 1980s designated 'humanitarian aid' flights for Nicaragua were filled with weapons. The orders for those flights were given... show more

I think that at the moment the only politicians against #imperialism (US and UK) are the Green Party (or come from it). In the US Warren et al (DNC, pseudo-independents) are mum on the matter, exception is #TulsiGabbard (hence reviled and demonised by billionaires' media)
...Just to be very clear, #trump is not against #imperialism and he not only expands the breadth of #militarism (more countries, military parade etc.) but starts/resumes nuclear threats on yet more fronts (EU, Iran, Russia). Also increases military spendings.
#TheResistance (All Rights Reserved) is #imperialism

On Venezuela: In Defense of the Bolivarian Revolution with Dakota Lilly – THE SOCIALIST

"Regretfully, I have to admit that I had several hesitations regarding Venezuela. I was reluctant to show support or solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution and President Maduro. I bought the image that Maduro was pursuing an undemocratic course and certainly was no socialist. This view was due to my personal picture perfect idea of what socialism looks like and how it should function. Venezuela fell short of my ideal vision of socialism, as reality always does with ideal situations and outcomes. However, the problem was I was not using a materialist analysis; I failed to take into account the impact US imperialism and violent reactionary forces may ha... show more
