World War 3: Breitbart News’ Steve Bannon Claimed War With China On The Horizon

01 February 2017 23:59:49 WN.com - World News

Before Steve Bannon had the ear of Donald Trump, he was the face of self-proclaimed “voice of the alt right” Breitbart News. With that platform, one prediction he made was that World War 3 with China was just around the corner. In March 2016 on his SiriusXM program Breitbart News Daily, Steve discussed growing tensions in the South China Sea between the Asian superpower and the rest of the world. Bannon argued that a war was brewing — one that could take off within the decade. “We’re going to war in the South China Sea in five to 10 years, aren’t we? There’s no doubt about that. They’re taking their sandbars and making basically stationary...

In 'I Am Not Your Negro,' fire of Baldwin's words burns anew

01 February 2017 23:59:47 WN.com - World News

NEW YORK (AP) — One of the surest ways to see the power and relevance of James Baldwin's words today would be to look at some of the signs of recent protesters. "If I love you I must make you conscious of things you do not see," read one. "The only way to be really despicable is to be contemptuous of other people's pain," read another. Or you could see Raoul Peck's urgent and clarion documentary "I Am Not Your Negro." It resurrects Baldwin's words — his eloquent poetry of injustice — with the same fire with which they were blazed. Peck's film, which is nominated for best documentary at the Academy Awards, bears no talking heads. There's no analysis of Baldwin's influence in literature or...
