President Obama had two things in mind when he invited himself to the cozy GOP in-house confab in Baltimore last week. One was to tell the GOP to knock off the hits, digs, and reflexive obstructionism to any and every one of his initiatives, like the proposed tax cuts, pumping up… Continue

Anyone with a grasp of the political rancor and subterfuge coming out of Washington could predict the Conservatives would make this about bashing the Obama administration and causing division instead of restoring the American judicial process. If bringing a man in chains to stand trial for alleged crimes amounts to weakening national security then whats the point of having a judicial system. We could just follow the model of concentration camps and exterminate perceived enemies. And we…Continue
The King of outrageous comments in his latest right wing propaganda spew says that President Obama wants to take a big chunk out of the economy. His comments were of course made on the Republican's media outlet Fox News.
The non-critical thinking person surely would think this means that some how the President is going to profit off of health care reform. This is the kind of propaganda for which Limbaugh is famous for. Perhaps we should ask Limbaugh for full… Continue
It has been reported that CNN and now NBC are talking down President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize Award. The Key word here is PEACE. Obama has took a stand against the illegal settlements Israel is building on stolen Palestinian land, He has engaged Iran diplomatically and they have revealed a secret nuclear plant and they are allowing in UN inspectors, North Korea seems willing to come back to the table for talks to dismantle its nuclear program, he has pledged to close Guantanamo Bay and has… Continue
Since President Elect Barack H.Obama came on the national scene many saw fit to equate his rise to political prominence to the continuing struggle of the Civil Rights movement even though many question the importance of that movement in light of the many problems still facing the the African American community today.Dr Martin Luther King comes to mind as the one that Barack Obama is carrying the torch for.Although… Continue

Let’s face it, just a few months ago, if you would have asked any number of African Americans if they really believed that they just might actually live to see a Black American President, you could be certain that almost if not all to a one they would have responded with a resounding ---“No!” Today, most of the country still seems to remain somewhat mystified by this latest example of the nation’s lingering racial divide. Nevertheless, whether… Continue
Many have been waiting for this defining moment from the administration of President Obama. While the administration is to be applauded for releasing the torture memos confirming what many citizens of the United States and International community knew all along, that the highest levels of our the U.S. Government was involved in the torture of human beings. This week conservatives held rallies and held signs proclaiming President Obama to be a tyrant but obviously those… Continue

The AP is reporting that President Obama is going to direct his administration to allow unlimited travel and money transfers by Cuban Americans to family in Cuba. Despite popular belief, the United States embargo against Cuban started in mid-1958 during the Batista administration. The Batista administration would be overthrown in the Cuban revolution of 1959 led by Fidel… Continue
As Obama takes over the presidency of the United States, Horace Campbell contextualizes an Obama presidency in the realities of Africa and the ongoing global finance crisis. He argues that "capitalism should not be reconstituted and rebuilt on the backs and bodies of Africans." For Campbell, the crisis is not simply a cyclical crisis of capitalism; it is a fundamental shift in the global political and economic order. In light of this fast… Continue
Uncovering the criminal actions that occurred under Bush's neo-con policies isn't being left up to the Obama Administration and whether or not they will declassify documents related to violations of International law. Other countries allied with Bush in his "War on Terror" are doing their own investigations and hopefully this will prevent the Obama Administration from sweeping the prior administration's criminal misdeeds under the rug.…
New petition posted for the release of innocent teen Devontae Sanford who was sentenced to 30 yrs - 90 yrs for crimes another inmate has confessed. Kym Worthy can end this nightmare for Devontae and his family if she so chooses. Taminko Sanford, Devontae's mother joins us again tonight.
Attorney John L. Burris gives us some details on the shooting death of Amos G. Smith in an exclusive interview. Amos G. Smith was the young man shot in the back of the head by Union City police in March along with 3 other black men in the same area in a span of 27 hours. A video posted to youtube shows a Black Muslim who had just hacked an alleged British soldier to death. He issued a warning to others before being shot by police.
There is a war going on in these streets and as we just celebrated the birthday of Malcolm X, I would hate to know what he would think about the lack of response of our young women and men being killed in these streets by thug ass murderous cops and thug ass murderous criminals in our communities. Children don't feel safe walking to school let alone going to school and yet there has been very little response from the community to meet the security needs. Union City cops shoot a brother 8 times in the back of the head and we ain't heard nothing from the people about it in corporate media.
How do you feel about the NOI bringing in white men from Scientology to teach their members non-African concepts and spirituality? What the hell is going on with them brothers and sisters? After seeing photos of one of these Scientology creeps taking the podium at a NOI meeting, many people are saying WTF!
An article came out today about the Mexican activist whom brother Malcolm Shabazz was with when he was murdered. It may answer some questions about who this man is but it does not answer the questions about what exactly happen that day and many have problems with his version of events.
Tonight revolutionary brother Carl Dix joins the broadcast to inform us about an upcoming event he and Cornel West will be hosting in NYC to stop the maddening mass incarceration going on in the United States.
"Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide. Act to STOP it Now!" Monday May 20, 2013, 7:30pm, The Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew 263 W. 86th St (between Broadway and West End Ave), #1 train to 86th, For tickets: 212-691-3345 or online @ http://revolutionbooknyc.org
In 1996, Dix co-founded the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of Generation. Most recently, Dix has been a central figure in the campaign to Stop "Stop and Frisk" aimed at opposing the New York Police Department's efforts to stop hundreds of thousands of people in New York City and frisk them for weapons, drugs or other items. Dix has long addressed questions about imperialist war, revolutionary struggles and the oppression of Black people. Other news out of New York pertaining to the NYPD Gestapo & Frisk campaign against Black people. The newly appointed Black Chief of Department wastes no time in fulfilling his duties as a racially showcased weapon of mass confusion as he goes to a white borough to tell them Gestapo & Frisks is not racial profiling.
Keeping it in NYC, a bronx based Hispanic religious organization shows up to the Gestapo Frisk civil trial to show their support for a suspected racist NYPD Deputy inspector caught on tape telling officers to target Black boys and men.
Conservatives in Congress just won't let Benghazi go and there is talk about impeaching President Obama concerning lies pertaining to a terrorist attack. Hillary Clinton is another one in their sights but again, this is manufactured outrage as well. The answer to why four Americans were killed in Benghazi is very simple, tune in for the answer.
Guatemalan dictator and US ally Efrain Rios Montt was found guilty on charges of genocide against Mayan villagers, some are asking if US officials will be charged in connection to their support of genocide in South America. Ronald Reagan staunchly supported this mass murderer and was complicit in many crimes against humanity.
New information on the killing of Malcolm Shabazz brings more questions and suspicions. Two men have been arrested in the murder of the emerging activist but other activist believe the Mexican labor activist Manuel Suarez had something to do with the murder as his story does not pass the smell test.
Today on May 13, 1985, the City of Philadelphia used its police force to commit an act of terrorism against the Move family by dropping a two pound bomb on their home from a helicopter killing several members of the group including children. The resulting fire destroyed over 60 homes.
Racism is not "accidental" it is conscious activity.
This and probably more tonight on Black Talk Radio News.
Paulette Dauteuil, General Secretary of the Jericho Movement will be joining us tonight on Political Prisoner Radio to update us on the health of several political prisoners being held by the US government.
Many of our comrades who fought for the social/political/human rights of the masses are now fighting to get adequate treatment for their health issues developed in some cases because of the poor conditions under which they are held. In some cases, they are literally fighting for their lives. We will do our best to give you the latest information.
Political captives we hope to update you on are Mutulu Shakur, Norberto Gonzalez, Mondo We Langa and Lynne Stewart.
Bro. Zayid Muhammad of the People's Organization for Progress joins us to discuss several issues related to political prisoners, exiles and the killing of Malcolm Shabazz.
POP is planning another protest at Cineplex 12, Newark’s only major theater which stirred up controversy after it refused to show the new film titled "MUMIA: Long Distance Revolutionary" which focuses on political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal and his contribution as an author and commentator.
We will also get his thoughts on the recent addition of Assata Shakur to the FBI's most wanted "terrorist" list and the erection of the FBI billboards of Assata in Newark.
Finally we discuss the constantly changing stories coming from the media about the killing of Malcolm X's grandson Malcolm Shabazz who was talked into traveling to Mexico by deported Mexican activist Miguel Suarez who many say has holes in his account of what happened.
Join me for Political Prisoner Radio tonight to discuss the breaking news concerning the tragic murder of Malcolm Shabazz, a political and human rights activist and organizer who reportedly was found murdered today in Tijuana, Mexico.
Earlier today I spoke to attorney activist Nkechi Tiafu who shared statements from the NY National Lawyers Guild and The National Conference of Black Lawyers in reference to Assasta Shakur being labeled a "domestic terrorist" by the United States government.
Join me for Political Prisoner Radio tonight with Sis. Pam Africa to discuss corporate and state sponsored environmental terrorism, seedless veggies possibly destroying the seeds in our wombs, the Newark, NJ cancellation of Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary and more.
Before we hear from Sis. Pam Africa, I want to share an important update about Sis. Assata Shakur as the United States government, perhaps angry at the attention Cuba received after Jay-Z and Beyonce visited the island which caused a new generation to question why the United States has a travel ban on the country, the FBI has double its reward for her capture and placed her on its "most wanted terrorists" list possibly making her a target for President Obama's drone assassination program.
Even though I am a veteran of the US Army,I do not celebrate nor recognize Veteran's Day. First, I was an uninformed twenty something when I joined and I only joined to get money for college coming from a poor working class family. I also do not think cops or soldiers…
There will be no justice for the family of Ramarley Graham unless another indictment against NYPD Officer Richard Haste is issued by another grand jury. Ramarley Graham is a teen who was shot in his grandmother’s bathroom while allegedly trying to flush a small amount of marijuana down the toilet. A Bronx judge tossed the indictment of the officer who shot and killed Graham claiming he had a gun but none was found. Citing mistakes…

“We Want in/Or let the revolution begin” - Various Shades of Black-Rakim
There was a time when Rev. Cleophus Johnson, head of the Negro League of Colored Black People ,Inc could call for a march and thousands of people would show up. So, he was confused when his latest call to integrate BigBubba's Beer and Burger Barn was only answered by a couple of elderly…
The inquiry into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya by conservatives to this point has been little more than an expression of white supremacy and political theater. What the inquiry is saying is that only "American" lives matter and not the lives of the thousands killed in Libya or those that are still being killed and displaced from their homes due to ethnic cleansing by forces backed by the United States. The…
