Four Years of Modi
Vijay Prashad | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04
It is impossible to miss the brutality. Each day, a video surfaces with an atrocity against Dalits or Muslims or someone else who has a fleeting hold of power in today's India. The most recent video was brought to light by Gujarat's new member of the Legislative Assembly, Jignesh Mevani. Mevani tweeted a video that…

Trumpian Boasts About the Trump Tax Cuts
Dean Baker | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04
Folks may remember that the Republicans sold their tax plan, which centered on a big cut in corporate taxes, with the promise that it will lead to a flood of investment. This would mean higher productivity growth, and therefore higher wages. Well, we aren't really seeing much evidence of that increase to date, but that…

Ropa Vieja in Cuba and Puerto Rico
Andrés Castro | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04

NATO's secretary-general says the alliance wouldn't come to Israel's defence in case of attack by arch enemy Iran.

Sacrificing Gaza: The Great March of Zionist Hypocrisy
Jim Kavanagh | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04
The Great March of Return is a startling, powerful expression of Palestinian identity and resistance. Thousands of Palestinians have come out, bravely and unapologetically, to say: "We refuse to remain invisible. We reject any attempt to assign us to the discard pile of history. We will exercise our fundamental right to go home." They have done this unarmed, in the face of Israel's use of deadly armed force against targets (children, press, medics) deliberately chosen to demonstrate the Jewish state's unapologetic determination to force them back into submissive exile by any means necessary.

Oh, Gaza, Strong as Death
Uri Avnery | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04
Strong as Death | Oh, Gaza. Strong as death is love. | I loved Gaza. That is a play on words. The Biblical Song of Songs says that love is strong as death. Strong in Hebrew is Aza. Aza is also the Hebrew name of Gaza. | I have spent many happy hours in Gaza. I had many friends there. From the leftist Dr. Haidar Abd al-Shafi to the Islamist Mahmoud al-Zahar, who is now the foreign minister of Hamas. | I was there when Yasser Arafat, the son of a Gazan family, came home. They put me in the first row of the reception at the Rafah border, and that evening he received me at the hotel on the Gaza sea shore, seating me next to him on the stage during a press conference. | I met with a friendly attitude everywhere…

Monuments to the Ego
David Mattson | counterpunch.org | 2018-06-04
Some rich bourgeoisie newcomers have perpetrated yet the latest in a series of atrocities upon the small valley where we live, entailing an assault on the sensibilities of virtually everyone and everything living there. Adding insult to injury, this has all been done with apparent utter disregard for us, our neighbors, our dirt road, the wildlife, the native vegetation, and everything sacred and beautiful.

Morocco: Another Crackdown on Protests

Riot police block demonstrators during a job protest after two miners died while working in a clandestine coal mine, in Jerada, Morocco, December 27, 2017. | © 2017 Reuters | (Tunis) — Moroccan police responded to March 2018 protests in the impoverished mining town of Jerada with weeks of repression, Human Rights Watch said. Security forces used excessive force against protesters, recklessly drove a police van into a 16-year-old boy, who was severely injured, and arrested protest leaders and reportedly mistreated them in detention. | The repression mirrors the response to similar protests over economic grievances and perceived government neglect in 2016-2017, in the Rif region, also in northern Morocco.

The 'Roseanne' Revival We Really Needed is the One They'd Never Make

Before "Roseanne" was canceled after the star's bigoted comments about Valerie Jarrett, it had already failed | In the end, ABC's experiment of reviving "Roseanne" — a sitcom once beloved for its portrayal of the loving and lovingly imperfect working-class Connor family during a time when such families were hard to come by on primetime — was a failure. Unlike most failed shows, "Roseanne" didn't fall short in the ratings, though the show's numbers dipped after the initial curiosity wave crested and criticisms rose of how glibly the show treated its most compelling feature — Roseanne Connor's support for Donald Trump, political sympathies echoed by Roseanne Barr herself.

Washington Post Decrees: U.S. Must Help Destroy Yemen in Order to Save It
Adam Johnson, FAIR | alternet.org | 2018-06-03
After a year of silence on the U. S. role in Yemen, Washington Post editors now argue bombing is the humane option | Over the past year, the Washington Post editorial board has routinely ignored U. S. involvement in the siege of Yemen — a bombing and starvation campaign that has killed over 15,000 civilians and left roughly a million with cholera. As FAIR noted last November, the Washington Post ran a major editorial and then an explainer detailing the carnage in Yemen without once mentioning the U. S. role in the conflict — instead pinning it on the seemingly rogue Saudis and the dastardly Iranians. This article originally appeared at FAIR. org.
