Stop Defending Abusers. Listen to Black Women
Shared by Anton Woronczuk | truthout.org | 2019-01-12
Starting last week, Lifetime Network has been showing a six-episode docu-series titled "Surviving R. Kelly" that gives more details about what many of us have been saying for years: Robert Kelly is a serial rapist. For many Black women, the last few days have seen a blur of unintentional (and intentional) denials of our reality and triggering social media posts. | The de-prioritization of Black women's and girls' experiences isn't new to us. | My mind cannot help but drift to the lack of outrage for 17-year-old Nia Wilson, who was attacked by 27-year-old John Cowell last year and died at the scene. | Cowell's…

ACLU | aclu.org | 2019-01-10
The Pennsylvania State Police is blocking access to its social-media-monitoring policy by claiming it could harm "public safety." | "Sunshine is the best disinfectant.", , That's a line that is used so much that it's become almost trite.

So we're headed to the state Supreme Court to get it. | The ACLU of Pennsylvania's attempt to obtain the st…

Marco Rubio and His Colleagues Need a Refresher on the First Amendment
ACLU | aclu.org | 2019-01-09
Rubio took to Twitter to spread a number of downright false statements about the First Amendment and the Combating BDS Act. | This week, amid a partial government shutdown, senators tried to sneak through a bill that would encourage states to suppress constitutionally protected political boycotts of Israel. | Ultimately, the Combating BDS Act failed to make it to the Senate floor, largely because enough people exercised their First Amendment right to protest the bill and educate senators t…

Rashida Tlaib: The Senate's Anti-BDS Bill Is an Unconstitutional Attack on Free Speech
Democracy Now! | democracynow.org | 2019-01-08
A new Senate bill would allow state and local governments to boycott any U.S. companies which are engaged in a boycott against Israel. We speak with Congressmember Rashida Tlaib, who has come out out against the bill, tweeting, "They forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away."

Belen Fernandez | fair.org | 2019-01-06
NPR ( 1/3/19) reports on the CIA finding it harder to sneak into other countries to commit espionage. | Imagine, for a moment, that a prominent media outlet in Iran decided to produce a story about the trials of being an Iranian spy in this technological day and age–in which the all-pervasiveness of surveillance mechanisms and social media complicates slightly the process of entering other countries under false identities. | It's safe to assume that the United States would find this…
