There is a problem in Amerika when a close confidante and
advisor to the president embraces white supremacist and white nationalist
ideologies. I’m speaking about Steven Miller. How is this possible?

More and more we have been observing the normalization of hate
speech. At the highest levels in the United States government and some state
governments, bigotry and hate are becoming the status quo and are being
reflected in newly accepted policy and practice.

There are no laws on the books in the state of Texas which
protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in the workplace! I find this
unacceptable. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott have
embraced a hostile position against Texans who identify as LGBTQ. How can we
convince Paxton and Abbott to acknowledge the humanity of LGBTQ people?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has recently sent word to
Iranian citizens requesting that they provide officials in the United States
with video evidence of violent acts of suppression aimed at protesters who
strongly disagreed with the recent 50 percent increase in the price of gas.

Since when has Mike Pompeo been interested in the safety or
welfare of any Muslims in any country? Could it be that Pompeo is more
interested in destabilizing the Iranian government in order to foment regime
change?

Has Mike Pompeo been vocal about our Muslim sisters and
brothers in Yemen who have been victims of an ongoing genocidal campaign by
Saudi Arabia? No! Mike Pompeo doesn’t give a damn about the Muslims in Yemen.
What about the 1 million Uighur Muslims who languish in Chinese re-education
concentration camps! Is Mike Pompeo willing to advocate for their immediate release?
I think not!

There are human rights violations which are taking place
right now in prisons here in the United States. Violations, abuses and
injustices which are routinely ignored. Every day employees with the Federal
Bureau of Prisons orchestrate the murder, abuse and outright execution of
numerous targeted prisoners.

The Department of Justice sees the patterns and trends yet
will not launch a broad fact-finding investigation because at the end of the
day, prisoners’ lives don’t matter and the BOP considers federal prisoners to
be sub-humans not deserving of respect or dignity.

Jeffrey Epstein’s death was not a suicide nor was it an
accident! What happened to Epstein was pre-meditated and planned, carried out
by the BOP. However, the only reason that Epstein’s case has garnered so much
scrutiny and public attention is that Jeffrey Epstein was a billionaire who had
evidence which implicated the likes of Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew in acts
of sexual abuse as well as the gross degradation of young girls. Our young
sisters deserve justice and not cover-ups!

It is important for all of you to know that it is not just
the Egyptian government that seeks to silence the voices of dissent. The Trump administration
also has an overt and covert campaign of suppression aimed at journalists,
activists and servants of the people.

I will not be silenced! Will you?
