Series | 1968 Reduxed and Revisited: Look How Far We’ve Come (That Was Sarcasm) — Part 1 of 5, John Fisher, Medium*RntLyJEFmFrW8vFtAx0how.jpeg Barry Goldwater. Photo: Newsroom

  • The Series: As the country approaches the 50th anniversary of one of the most controversial, volatile, and important years in our country’s history, We the People of the United States of America find ourselves facing many of the same issues that led us to the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel, the bloodiest year of the Vietnam War, screams of “the whole world is watching” at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, the floor of the Ambassador Hotel, and Black fists being raised in the air at the Mexico Summer Olympics. So much has changed, true. We’ve come so far, but in a lot of ways, we’re right back where we started and even further behind.
  • Part 1: Depending on how you feel about Donald Trump and his approach to politics, either the worst or best is yet to come. Over time, Goldwater’s message and methods became mainstream, and with time, so will Trump’s.

From the Archives | Special Report: The Clintons, “We Came, We Stole, Haitians Died” Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report

  • The Haitian people’s furious resistance to yet another fraudulent presidential election has scuttled U.S. plans to replace “Sweet Mickey” Martelly with another flunky named the “Banana Man.” The aborted fraud is a reminder that Secretary of State Clinton was an imperial bully who rigged the previous presidential election in Haiti and stole the country blind, along with her accomplice and husband, Bill. Those chickens may yet come home to roost.
  • “The discrediting of the elections would also reflect very badly on presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”
  • “Hillary and Bill were the Bonnie and Clyde of Haiti.”
