Cartoon: Cinco de Mayo hangover

by laloalcaraz

Uncle Sam loves Mexican food and drink, especially on that colorful holiday Cinco de Mayo! But on May 6th things go back to normal and the US goes back to hating Mexicans. Congress goes back to fighting back Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and states go back to passing anti-immigrant laws. Enjoy your year long hangover!

Cartoon: Texas takeover

by Jen Sorensen

For more info on the "Jade Helm 15" set of conspiracy theories, this TPM article offers a nice rundown. Fears are so widespread that Wal-Mart literally just issued a statement denying involvement in a U.S. military invasion of Texas.

To think we could have had Wendy Davis as Governor instead of Greg Abbott... it is to weep.

The portions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that have been leaked show that it's a giveaway to corporate interests. Only legislators and lobbyists have seen the whole thing, and most of them want to "fast-track" it to prevent amendments and keep the pesky public from commenting on its terribleness.

If the minutiae of trade deals seems too arcane, Robert Reich has a very quick and helpful video about why the TPP is a bad deal for everyone who isn't a multinational corporate person.

Cartoon: Commander-in-Drone

by Mark Fiore

Remember a couple years ago, when Obama said we’d shape up his drone program and achieve “near certainty” that civilians wouldn’t be killed and signature strikes would basically end? Turns out that’s not quite true. There were some pretty huge asterisks that were attached to his proclamation.

For one, the CIA was essentially allowed to do as they please when it came to drone strikes in Pakistan. And judging by the killing of hostages Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto, we aren’t “nearly certain” of anything. The only thing that is nearly certain is that nearly nothing has changed over the past two years. The Obama administration admitted they really don’t know who we’re killing with drones.

If it looks like a terrorist from thousands of feet above, FIRE! Last year, of 41 people targeted by drones, 1,147 were killed. A ratio like that is not going to go a long way in winning over hearts and minds. With drones on the rise, it’s time to investigate if this sort of warfare actually works or is beneficial in the long run— a decidedly difficult task with so much of the US drone program shrouded in secrecy. Enjoy your Commander-in-Drone, like, share and check out the links behind the cartoon!

I ran out of space on the sign to list all the seemingly innocuous activities unarmed black men, women and children have been guilty of committing in front of American police. Regardless, they still paid the ultimate price.
