Getting ready to smash the penultimate session for “Eternally Husseini” but I wanted to take a moment to send my thoughts and prayers to Bolivian President Evo Morales, who, according to Cuban media’s announcement today, will be heading to Cuba to undergo surgery in just a few weeks to remove a nodule in his vocal chords. Bolivia’s first Indigenous head of state is the apogee of revolutionary and has been a friend to both the Syrian Arab Republic and the Palestinian cause in ways that put just about every “Arab” and “Muslim” regime in the world to shame. He has given new meaning along with new strength to Anti-Imperialism and Anti-Zionism and every last one of us should be studying his remarkable life and incandescent achievements. Indeed, his homeland of Bolivia as well as the whole of Latin America and the Global South are eternally changed for the better because of his social and political ascendancy. Even though the operation is a minor one, after what befell El Comandante Hugo Chavez, we know that such things still need to be handled with the utmost vigilance. So get well soon Señor Presidente… Mouqawamists everywhere are pulling for you! VIVA EVO!

Comandante Hugo Chavez, the liberator of Venezuela and unifier of Latin America, should’ve been 62 years old today. But instead his life was taken by the US and ‘Israel’ with what the Bolivarian Venezuelan government called a “cancer implant”. Getting infected by the Zio-Yankees with some kind of biological weapon was something that Hugo spoke of openly, as well as the Mossad trying to kill him, so this shouldn’t come as some sort of astonishment. Quite to the contrary, it should make the fire in our hearts against his murderers blaze that much brighter and our commitment to defending Hugo’s legacy of Bolivarianism that much firmer. To say that we miss him isn’t just an understatement but almost an insult, as it is more like we ache for his presence. If only the Benevolent Bull of Barinas was here, and healthy, the US-Zionist counterrevolution we’re now seeing regionwide wouldn’t be rapidly advancing in its destructiveness but dead in the water. Continue reading Comandante Chavez Would’ve Been 62 Today and Damn It Do We Miss Him So!

Alhamdulillah. “Globalized Yemen”, the fourth and final single off my #Yemen album Felicity Of The Oppressed, is now available. Hard to describe how proud I am of this song and how much it means to me, as it was produced by my late homie Jamal Dubois (Metal Gear Solid), one of the last beats he made prior to passing almost nine years ago. Could never bring myself to write a full piece to it, scribbling only various things over the years, because it was too painful but after hearing it in the midst of the Saudi aggression against Yemen, the words just gushed out like a lava stream from a volcano. It’s a flat-out epic instrumental and it brought the lyrical best out of me. This joint exemplifies everything that Ansarullah and the Yemeni people are and just how important their struggle is in a worldwide context. The Houthis and their comrades are like the Algerians who fought French colonialism, the DPRK, the Palestinian Resistance, Hizbullah, the Vietnamese Resistance, the Iraqi Mouqawamah, the Iranian revolutionaries led by Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) and more. They all get shouted out here… Even got some 9/11 truth on the joint! Barely anybody is speaking about Yemen, its suffering and its victories, but that doesn’t matter… ‘Cause Haqq is Haqq and it is beyond critical for the triumphs of the Yemeni people to be globalized. So… Y’all know the deal. Throw it in your whips or your ‘phones and let it BLAST like a Striking Star missile!
