Trump kidnaps world’s top African-American international news anchor for MLK Day—DEMONSTRATION TOMORROW!


By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Trump regime PR geniuses John Bolton and Mike Pompeo have really stepped in it this time. Their illegal detention-without-charges of the world’s leading African-American international news anchor, Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV, was perfectly timed: they grabbed Marzieh at the St. Louis airport, shackled her, and flew her to an “undisclosed location prison” in the DC area EXACTLY ONE WEEK BEFORE THE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. FEDERAL HOLIDAY! The story has been gathering steam over the week, and the first major US “#FreeMarziehHashemi demonstration is in the final stages of organization today, MLK Day. It will take place tomorrow, TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, in front of the Department of Justice Headquarters, 950 Penn. Ave. NW, in Washington DC.

  1. I fully support this outstanding reporter, journalist and American. I think what has recently happened to her, the obscenity of arresting her, treating her inhumanely, in her own country is itself an obscenity. The mainline media have mostly ignored this story. This country has been criminally hi jacked by the worst obscene monsters beginning with Monster Israel Lover Trump and continuing with Monster Israel Lovers Criminals Psychopaths Pompeo and Bolton and all the rest, Israel lover liar lawyer whores in Congress, all sold out to gangsters in Israel, and on and on and on, about 1.3 million lying lawyer whores in the country not lifting a finger to defend her basic Constitutional rights against a Monster dictatorial totalitarian government of criminal monsters and thugs. Shame, shame shame on the citizens of America for permitting this mass obscenity to happen. Frankly Americans deserve their plight.

    • If anyone still doesn’t “get it”, America is no more, it has been hi jacked by monster criminals in Israel, without our consent, but by bribing or threatening whores in Congress to do their bidding. Watch a former U.S. Marine about three years ago “tell it like it is” from Lax:

  2. Kev, it couldn’t be any colder. The worst of the year. There was a parade today in Baltimore for Dr. King. Really, could we not have this in June after school lets out? Think of all those kids freezing to death, marching. I’m positive that Dr. King would understand. After all, the march on Selma was down South, eh! Plus Blacks are not exactly enamored with minus fifteen wind chill. Not that anyone is. Except the heat bothers me more:) But I’m an old white guy that delivers batteries. Had to put on a jacket today, first time this year. Children do not have the body mass to suffer cold. And once they are cold they can’t play catch up. They get quiet and shut down and must be warmed immediately. Be careful.
