Wall Street being her numero uno donors

Is too telltale to me.

Until she comes out hard against the war machines and Wall Street getting away with crimes...always

I'm for Warren, Bernie or any other.

Let's see her come out and say that "my husband made a mistake repealing Glass Steagall"

Otherwise, this seems like pandering, To me

Blue Wall Cover Ups: Gray Killed Himself

As a victim of manifest injustice it always amazes me how repetitive, verbal, reinforcing Bull Chit is able to diffuse, or even overcome - glaring truths. And yet, the proverbial 'Blue Wall of Silence', the Police Unions and the oligarch's bought & paid for media, are still trying to maintain the status quo (that non-oligarch lives don't matter), via cover ups and disinformation.

It is as if they, the powers that be, are all dumber than they believe U.S. (and the rest of the world chiming in) - to be. Anyone with common sense doesn't need a doctors education and oath to know that it is an arduous task to break your throat, much less your spine; even when it is done others.

In this case, it appears to have taken several to get the job done.

As par for the course, in line with people shooting themselves in squad cars with handcuffs behind their back (and even another case yesterday, of a gal purportedly shooting at police - after being detained and tossed in a squad car), now we have the culprits proffering the absurd premise that Freddie Gray broke his own throat and spine (this goes beyond inane).

Proof of insanity, is the ("pure") WaPo msm reporting of a witness to Gray's self mutilation (here).

WTF!



Today, the Washington Post is defending its action, stating that it simply reported from the facts within a Police report. But the FACT of the matter is, WaPo was being part of the disinformation blame game. As the title from WaPo tells a specific tale...

Stating - influentially - that;

Prisoner in van thought Gray was ‘trying to injure himself



This title is not one of journalist integrity. NOPE, it is one that seeks to sway the opinion through the only absurd premise oligarch geniuses can hope to utilize, to save their supremacist arses. As is corroborated by the f----k'n sick, KKK title to WaPo's picture that states;

Residents clean up from the looting and fires
that plagued parts of the city Monday
after the funeral for Freddie Gray.


Beyond the fact that we can't put the photo here and link to it (because the repugish' tards proffer to "sell" the photo), the subtitle to the picture is not of rioters or riot acts; but of protesters marching.

Also, as a techy, I look for the meta information and such, to see what the IT geniuses at WaPo are utilizing for their hierarchy, based on keywords an such. In this particular case, though the title is "Prisoner in van though Gray was 'trying to injure himself', the actual web link of the story also corroborates the malicious intent of WaPo's slant on the story - that;

prisoner-in-van-said-freddie-gray-was-banging-against-the-walls-during-ride




Are you pissed off enough yet? Does the charges coming quickly (for once) quell your anxieties? Are you like me and wonder what GZ, Staten Island, Ferguson, Fullerton Kelly Thomas thingy is going to transpire - this time - to make ALL the charges go away?

Well then, take a look at the verbatim words of the Washington Post that;

BALTIMORE — A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

Do you see that is says the prisoner "could not see him" due to a metal partition? Does it ring with you that the van made "3" stops. And that one of them is claimed to have placed Gray in leg irons?

Did you notice the remark that;

The third stop was to put the other prisoner — a 38-year-old man accused of violating a protective order — into the van. The van was then driven six blocks to the Western District station. Gray was taken from there to a hospital, where he died April 19.


Not only are there contradictory remarks (such as that Gray was put back on the seat "without" restraints), but there's also the note that Gray asked for medical help at the point of the second stop.

WHY?







We simply can't say it any better than the sign above says (pic from a WordPress Blog titled "DearKitty1" {that had an original story - HERE}). It doesn't matter what crime you did (though the recent reports by the prosecutor is stating that Gray was not guilty of any thing worthy of being arrested - in the first place) - one doesn't deserve to be injured by police - simply because they consider you the enemy.

DearKitty1 WordPress Blog states under "Politics, Racisim and Anti-Racisim" that;

“We have a clear message,” organizer Brock Satter told the Boston Globe at a 500-person rally in Boston. “We’re gonna demand the government indict the killers of Freddie Gray. If you want peace, if you want calm, jail the killers of Freddie Gray.”

Gray’s death has been compared with those of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York; and Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina. All were unarmed black men who died during confrontations with police.

Erica Garner, Eric Garner‘s daughter, spoke at the New York rally. She told protesters that she had attended Gray’s funeral on Monday and understood — but did not endorse — the violence. “We need to change this for the next generation,” Garner added, according to Black Youth Project tweets. “This has to stop now.”

The aunt of Akai Gurley, who was fatally shot by police in Brooklyn, New York, in November, was also in attendance, according to MSNBC reporter Amanda M. Sakuma.







Putting WaPo, Police Thugs & Oligarchs On Notice



In case you killer cops, power mongers, bought out media and oligarchy haven't noticed, we of the world - The Citizenry - aren't swallowing your babbling Bull Chit any more. Your bought and paid for main stream media - matters less and less. We, the citizens of the world, get the truth out faster than you can think up your bull chit.

If you think the people are out of control, you are right. For your control means U.S. swallowing babbling, repetitive, reinforcing manure and calling it cake & ice cream. As is purely evident by the world wide response to the absurdity of a person winding up with a broken spine (for NO apparent reason); you have lost your ability to control U.S. with your brutality.

Soon, your wars are going to face the same amount of protest.

And, if you think such isn't true, as for your designs to remove this prosecutor and wind up with a not guilty verdict. That's not going to bode well.


I'm just sayin..........





One of the neatest Tweets out this week (that I'm having a trouble finding) is the remark some white snob made in a public area - that what would young kids using the term nigg'ahs ...say - if Martin Luther King was standing next to them.

To which the young man responded -

------------------------ "If your people hadn't killed him - maybe we would know"!



While the Washington Post fails to print a retraction and embarrasses itself even further (when its attempt to smear campaign died instantly), doing a two step out of its own manure pie with its new story titled "Those stories that Freddie Gray had a preexisting spinal injury are totally bogus";

let's, instead take a look at Norm Chomsky's reasons why

"Black Lives Matter"







Arguing Warren Can't Win, Oppresses Absurdly

Let hateful, spiteful mud slinging begin; but only after proper debate with verifiable, true/ factual documentations. Yes, yours truly wants Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren to run, even if we have to draft her. The notion that Senator Warren shouldn't run because she can't win - is ABSURD! And anything/ anyone arguing she shouldn't do it because Hillary is running is oppressive and un-democratic.

Let's look at the FACTs apropos - below....after a brief word from another sponsor

Here's what MoveOn.org's PETITION has to say about Elizabeth Warren running for POTUS.

Elizabeth Warren is a fighter for working people and a champion for the middle class. And at this time of historic inequality, we need her to run for president.

Warren is uniquely suited to take on the tough challenges our country faces: income inequality, a skewed playing field, the middle class and working people constantly getting "chipped, squeezed, and hammered" while Wall Street gets bailed out. She will stand up to the lobbyists and the corporate interests, and go all-in to give the rest of us a fighting chance.

That’s what we need right now, and it’s why we are intent on showing her she has the support she needs to run for president and win.











Making the case for/against POTUS candidate Warren

There are sooooo many things wrong with fellow Progressives going at each others throats about this issue. It actually sickens me and swells up fear within me, about being rejected by my fellow liberals, who are die-hard Hillary Clinton supporters. It's ugliness is heart wrenching. Be that as it may, I've put life and liberty on the line openly fighting Romney and helping to defeat him in the election; but I've not defeated him (yet) totally. It is my belief that with Elizabeth Warren as President of the United States, I can do so. Granted, some of you may argue this logic is bias; but I reply that all elections are voted based on bias beliefs.

Both fear and anger are ebol and suck the whammy big time.

In order to approach this properly, I'll be more verbose than usual, with each germane part of the argument broken down into it's own debate issue. This makes it easier for everyone to go to verbal civil war in the comment section, doing so on a particular point.

The following sections will address the issues moi believes to be germane.

1. Reasons for Elizabeth Warren to be POTUS.

2. Arguments Against Elizabeth Warren running to be President.

3. Comparing Hillary Clinton to Elizabeth Warren

4. Arguing IF Elizabeth Warren Can win the POTUS election.

5. Conclusion {of this thread poster}.





(pic is from "DailyBanter.com" that references "quickmeme.com"

1. Reasons for Elizabeth Warren to be POTUS.

A. Elizabeth Warren is a woman and we've never had a female President
B. She is - unequivocally - extremely popular
C. Senator Warren beat an incumbent to become 1st female Senator of Mass.
D. She is an attorney at law (who specializes/taught at Harvard of bankruptcy law)
E. Elizabeth Warren brought U.S. the CFPB (Consumer Fraud Protection Bureau)
F. The Senator is outspoken against white collar fraud and student loan racketeering
G. Mrs. Warren is "among the most cited in the field of commercial law" (Wiki)
H. Elizabeth Warren is recognized by both Law Journal & Time as top 100 influential
I. Senator is one of the leading Progressives, during her first term in office
J. Often, Elizabeth Warren, as Senator, is quick of wit to nail bull chit arguments
K. She published many works, including 2014 book "A Fighting Chance" (says almost none).
L. Elizabeth Warren has won a fight against WS forming CFPB and becoming Senator.
M. Senator remains relentless in her stances and halted raising student loan interests
N. On the issue of raising the minimum wage - she is outspoken - GReatly!
O. When her opinion isn't popular - she doesn't lie to B.S. the crowd (Israel stance)
P. Wall Street has threatened to pull Democratic funding, if she doesn't back off
Q. Every crooked player fears Elizabeth Warren being President of the United States


We can go on and on with accolades for Senator Warren to become POTUS candidate Warren; but there's more than enough here already. And need I say, that Elizabeth Warren most certainly isn't a faux candidate?!?!?!?




(pic is from Boston Globe story "Warren casts shadow on Hillary")

2. Arguments Against Elizabeth Warren running to be President.

Let's face simple facts concerning why Senator Warren should not be running for POTUS. In actuality, there are ONLY 2 major arguments against Elizabeth Warren.

A. Senator Warren is Not Hillary Clinton

B. (Based upon the logic of item number 1 {Item A.}) - Elizabeth Warren Can't Win.


If Hillary Clinton wasn't running, there would only be the question of item 2 {B.}. To both of those premises, I'm giving the following remarks and then we'll move on to the comparison (next item).

Of all the banter out there, the one argument that I find over looked (not properly addressed) is that Bernie Sanders can't win. Of the race of Sanders v Warren, I am (along with most others I talk to) hands down Senator Warren.

Getting beyond that and back to Hillary, if former Secretary of State Clinton was not running for POTUS, there can be only 1 other argument against Senator Warren doing such; and that's the absurd (out of the gate logic) that Elizabeth Warren could never possibly win.

PUHHHLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!

On what basis can one argue that Elizabeth Warren could never win? Are not elections based upon popularity? If it was Warren v Bush/Romney/ Rubio/ Cruz and/or Walker or GOP anybody ---- Who are You going to Vote For?

Did Elizabeth Warren beat an incumbent Republican to become 1st female Senator of Mass.?

Was her battle against the entire RWNJ/ WS supporting establishment won, in order to create the CFPB?

As Senator, did she go about lining herself up for favorite positions; or did she come out and remain swinging against the status quo on behalf of average John/Jane Q Public?

Senator Barack Obama did not have 1/100th the popularity before he ran for POTUS - that Elizabeth Warren now enjoys. Not only has Warren been a Senator; but she has worked with Obama's Administration to create the CFPB. We will address more on this bogus notion that Warren can't win - in the section dedicated to it below. Meanwhile.....

Is Wall Street threatening to shut down any other candidacy?

Has that one item - Alone - earned any of your DEEP respect for Elizabeth Warren?

IT SHOULD!


There is no better test of a Hillary Clinton POTUS run, to be successful, than that of her engaging in Primary debates with Senator Warren.

NONE!




(pic is from HuffPo article that "Warren may not want to; but we need her to run")


3. Comparing Hillary Clinton to Elizabeth Warren


Outside of the fact that Hillary was also FLOTUS, it is almost a neck and neck run on ratings agencies about the comparison of Warren v Hillary. As seen at "Presidential-Candidates.insidegov.com", here is the ratings of Warren v Hillary - on the following issues;

DEFENSE and International Issues

Warren is rated a 6 (with 10 being most liberal) - and Hillary is rated a 7

ECONOMIC issues

Warren is rated a 9 ------------------------------ Hillary is rated an 8

DOMESTIC issues

Warren is rated an 8 --------------------------------- Clinton is rated at 9

INDIVIDUAL Rights

Elizabeth Warren is a 9 ---------------------------- Hillary is an 8



Compare charts at "insidegov.com" delves into many issues germane. Including "Absolute right to gun ownership" (that both Hillary and Warren 'strongly oppose').

There's also the issues of 'Prioritize green energy' and 'Expand ObamaCare'; which are both "strongly favored" by Hillary and Warren.

Both Senator Warren and Hillary oppose the "expand free trade" agreements.

Also, it is noted that both Clinton and Elizabeth Warren "strongly favors" that 'stimulus' works over market based recovery and 'higher taxes on the rich' (both, by the way, are millionaires).

ACLU and Planned Parenthood Action Fund have Elizabeth Warren at 100% (oddly enough there's NO Congressional record compare listing such stats for Hillary). Arguably, Hillary Clinton has been at it longer than Elizabeth Warren. Clinton also has the experience of Secretary of State and being the 1st lady. As much as one can argue Hillary has more experience, the opposing banter for Warren can be that she has become stronger, in less time and done more - than Clinton - in less time.

They are (arguably) equal in popularity. One has more time on the block; but is not as strong an opponent to Wall Street as we want or need. The other fights for U.S. every chance she gets.

The only thing Elizabeth Warren doesn't have (and never will) is a husband who has already been in the White House - that is very popular among many Democrats. As for me, I like Bill Clinton; but I don't give him all the accolades of praise as most Dem's do. For one, he had the dot com era make his policies against Reagan/ G HW Bush trickle down. Dot com won for U.S.

Outside of that - there's Glass Steagall that Bill Clinton publicly announced (as he was leaving office) on such no longer being necessary.

Do you recall how that logic actually panned out?

Just sayin.................



(pic is from MoveOn.org's PETITION - pleading for Warren to Run for President


4. Arguing IF Elizabeth Warren Can win the POTUS election.

As stated above, elections are popularity contests. Beyond any reasonable doubt, for the most part, this election, is based upon the right via left. As is most times (except for our pee poor snub of Obama during mid-terms) - this election will be about HARD right against anything left.

IMO - both Hillary and Warren stand a solid chance against Any RWNJ in 2016.

This particular section is about the fact that one of the main arguments of Democrats is, Warren can't possibly win. To that remark, yours truly says BULL C H I T!

Elizabeth Warren raised $40 million from U.S. for her Massachusetts Senator race.

If, at the end of the day, are you saying that you are SO pro Hillary and against Warren - that if Elizabeth won the primary - you're NOT going to support her in the POTUS race?

REALLY!

Senator Barack Obama was an unknown quality. We (that's right - YOU & I) along with the entire Democratic/Progressive realm, picked the unknown Barack Hussien Obama over Hillary Clinton.

The fact of the matter is, Warren is a better speaker than Hillary!

You say it ain't so.....HOW? Every word that comes out of Elizabeth Warren's mouth is for U.S. - the average John/ Jane Doe Q Public of America. She is so outspoken against Wall Street - that they have threatened to pull funding Democrats.

THAT's extortion/blackmail - and it should make U.S. all MORE pro Warren (not less)!

Of Campaign Finance, Do you Believe Clinton will do better than Warren?

Obama didn't have industries lined up behind him, nor Wall Street (that - granted - Hillary Clinton does have; but shouldn't be bragging about such). And - yet - we were able to raise enough money and get behind him with enough Grass Roots - that he beat the well funded (super rich) John McCain.

This time around, the Koch brothers have already promised $894 MILLION dollars (nearly a Billion) to help put a Republican in office. Along with that is Fox networks and the over 100 million listeners of Rush LameBlah, Beck, Hannity etc., of Clear Channel's 800 stations (renamed iHeart).

Factually, Democrats can never hope to outspend Republicans.

It is estimated with the programming already anti Anybody from the liberal side - that we are a $3 Billion dollar underdog in raising cash this election. Midterms alone (according to Open Secrets) costs almost $4 Billion.

Simply put, there's not enough outright Liberal ownership of media to balance the scales of Fox, Romney's iHeart and the money they can raise. Hence, we are going to have to do this by the same populace, Grass Roots actions that helped Obama win the Presidency.

But We're "Drafting" Elizabeth Warren

Yes, this is true, we are attempting to "draft" Elizabeth Warren, who is upon the public stage, many times, stating she simply - flatly - won't run.

Everyone argues with me that NO drafted person can possibly win;

REALLY?

Let's take a look at proof to the contrary, in the form of Dwight D. Eisenhower!

Wikipedia states that;

The Draft Eisenhower movement was the first successful political draft of the 20th century to take a private citizen to the Oval Office. It was a widespread American grassroots political movement that eventually persuaded Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President. The movement culminated in the 1952 presidential election in which Eisenhower won the Republican nomination and defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson to become the 34th President of the United States.


If they can do it - why can't we? - Did we not "Grass Roots" Obama to victory?

We, Democrats, hard side and medium ground alike, will be HARD behind who ever is the successful Primary nominated candidate. Even if it be Reid, Levin and/or Sanders.

Anyone saying Elizabeth Warren has no chance - is trying to rig it for Hillary;

and that ain't kosher!





(pic is from Reverb Press about Bill Maher's Million dollar offer for Warren to run)


CONCLUSION




If Hillary wasn't running, would there be ANY arguments against her? How about if Gore wanted to get back in; would you then say he shouldn't run? Are we telling Bernie not to try to run? Would you do the same to Harry Reid, Carl Levin and/or another quiet candidate popping out the woodworks?

Barack Obama came from relative obscurity, into our hearts, minds and dedication, in a fight against Hillary Clinton. He did not have 1/100th the popularity that Elizabeth Warren has today, as a Senator.

We need change - SERIOUS Change!


Have you ever seen such public demand, LONG before a campaign is to begin - with an Established choice already there - as there is for Elizabeth Warren?

The answer is a most resounding NO; especially for a Progressive candidate!

Bill Maher already has thumped the can't raise money nail, on its proverbial dam head - when he Up Front offered Elizabeth Warren, a million dollars to run.

Here's what Ian of Huffington Post wrote on this subject;

Democrats will never win by running as what Harry Truman called "phony Democrats." We can only win by contrasting what we believe and what we've done when in power with the beliefs and actions of our Republican opponents. There is no alternative. And there's no one in our party better suited to make that contrast to the American people than the woman who said this:

People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: they're right. The system is rigged. Look around. Oil companies guzzle down billions in subsidies. Billionaires pay lower tax rates than their secretaries. Wall Street CEOs--the same ones who wrecked our economy and destroyed millions of jobs--still strut around Congress, no shame, demanding favors, and acting like we should thank them.


And Ian then reiterated the issues of how popular Warren is, linking to DailyKos - this;






This is transcribed - in short - to be;


The Republican vision is clear: "I've got mine, the rest of you are on your own." Republicans say they don't believe in government. Sure they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends.

Corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters. That matters because we don't run this country for corporations, we run it for people.



Then Ian of HuffPo continued to state;


That woman, of course, is Elizabeth Warren. And damn if those words don't get me excited. Many people have said this before. I'm one of them. But I'm going to say it again, because it must be said after our losses in the midterms: We need Elizabeth Warren to run for president. Whether she wins or loses, no one else can more effectively reshape the message and policy agenda of the Democratic Party, and there's no better way for her to do so than with the platform of a White House run.




Do you see how excited we were about Elizabeth Warren in 2012 election? Can anyone be legitimate in any argument that we won't be more so, when she runs for POTUS?



What do we need a Progressive POTUS for, in 2016?



The questions you have to ask yourself is - what do we really need, for 2016. Do we need just a Democrat? Or do we need a woman? Is the outspoken Warren that much different from Clinton, on women's rights, equal pay, Social Security, ObamaCare, LGBT?

On almost all issues, Hillary and Warren are the same - a l m o s t!

Where does Elizabeth Warren Stand FAR above Hillary Clinton?

Truth is, if there's any doubt in your answer, then you really have nothing but bias. For, as we ALL know (even on both right and left) that Elizabeth Warren is feared most by the Repub R{e}ich.

Wall Street can't stand - even Fears - Elizabeth Warren!

On that issue - Alone - Hillary and Warren are clearly at different ends of the spectrum. This, is in great part due to the fact that Clinton has been in D.C. many more years than Warren. Hillary was the first lady and knows that - as a politico - you have to go along to get along.

Elizabeth Warren has never been one to - go along - in order to get along!

There's no better place to test Hillary Clinton's popularity, than that of a Primary debate with Elizabeth Warren. Nor, on the flip side of the coin, is there any other place for Warren to prove her true viability - than that of debating with Hillary Clinton.

For Hillary - will pull no punches - against an opposing Warren.

I'm for Elizabeth Warren, due to the fact that Wall Street hates here and her best chance of rallying U.S. Progressive/Liberals/ Democrats behind her, is a strong platform on reigning the GOP in, along with Wall Street.

Can you say the same for Hillary?

REALLY!

Finally, before I release you to the POLL and video below, let U.S. take a look at another issue that most don't even dare talk about. There's this little thingy that we should never have had a Bush II in the White House (and most certainly not a Dallas Dynasty III - with Jeb). In the same accord, I'm of the very strong opine that we are opening up (setting a precedent - if you will) the issue of defeating the "No More than 2 Terms as President".

For the misogyny of our founding fathers, arguendo, never even dare consider the fact that George Washington's wife would run for President of the United States. With the history of Bush/Rove stealing elections (Romney's family owning voting machines/ stealing billions to buy media outlets like CCC/ iHeart), gerrymandering, voter blocking and money raising from Koch's, Adelson, etc., - can we ever stand such getting Barbara Bush in, or Ann Romney?

Hence, neither should we endure a world running around Bill Clinton, with his ex Sec. of State wife Hillary, now giving U.S. a Clinton Presidency Part II. For it is TOO much power in the hands of the same persons way of doing things. We've had a decade and a half, beyond the way of Bill Clinton's time. Besides, what would we call him, the POTUS 1st FMOTUS?

And let's not even get started on if/when Michele should consider....

Because there's also Joe Biden, silently waiting in the background.


I'm just sayin.........


Tom Delay Falsely Says G-d Wrote the Constitution - Biblical

There's a RAW Story from a few weeks back and it quotes Tom Delay spouting the purported belief as an item of fact that "People keep forgetting that God ‘wrote the Constitution".

As quoted by RAW Story verbatim, Tom Delay's remarks are;

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) this week warned Americans to remember that God “wrote the Constitution” based on the Bible.

“I think we got off the track when we allowed our government to become a secular government,” DeLay explained. “When we stopped realizing that God created this nation, that he wrote the Constitution, that it’s based on biblical principles.”



This Jew for Jesus wannabe Agnostic {moi} - calls out Bull C H I T!






Founding Fathers Say Absolute NO to Religious Constitution


Sorry to burst Tom Delay (and every other RWNJs') bubble; but Addicting Info has on online item that slam dunks this bogus belief/theory into the out-house crap hole it belongs. Beyond the shadow of any doubt, keeping religion out of government was the priority of all the founding fathers. Addicting Info's online thread documenting this - is titled apropos "35 founding fathers quotes that conservative Christian's will Hate".

It states such axiomatic principals as Item 5 - by John Adams - that;

5. “The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.”

~1797 Treaty of Tripoli signed by Founding Father John Adams




Here are some more perfect quotes of the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others...I would steadfastly suggest that we read each item and quote them often. For the founding fathers also points out that society advances and people rush to - the parts of the country where freedom is assured.



1. “If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”
~Founding Father George Washington, letter to the United Baptist Chamber of Virginia, May 1789

12. “History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.”
~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson: in letter to Alexander von Humboldt, December 6, 1813


16. “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~Founding Father James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

28. “No religious doctrine shall be established by law.”
~Founding Father Elbridge Gerry, Annals of Congress 1;729-731





Can anyone write like the founding fathers, from the days of yore?

WOW! - The sheer simplicity of what they say is absolutely astounding.


As is this one (explaining how I'm a Jew for Jesus wannabe Agnostic), as dear ole founding father Thomas Jefferson made this apropos note that;

10. “Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, then that of blindfolded fear.”

~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 10, 1787

Retroactive Romney Should STFU About Hillary's Purported Corruption

Willard Mitt (the Pitt's) Romney is out and about calling Hillary Clinton corrupt. Romney is openly stating that it visibly appears that Hillary Clinton's took bribery (see the youtube item below).

For those who have followed my fights with Pitten's, you are well aware that there's no room for this hypocrisy from this Racketeering Romney character. There's hundreds of items out there about Mitt's deceptions, his "retroactive" retiring from Bain Capital and more. He is a RICO boss who gained unjust enrichment unlawful and via Colm Connolly corruption.

Mr. Connolly was Romney/Bain's law firm partner (at MNAT.com) who became a U.S. Attorney.

Granted - Thus Far - his lordship that will rule his own world one day (according to his lordship) has been getting away with corruption, organized crimes and possibly accessory to greater evils, for more than a decade now. However -that's all about to change - cause yours truly is still in the fight.

And I've got a surprise coming. (Mitt is REAL stupid for giving me an opening like this - timing apropos).

(If only Hillary would dare to throw the true mud back at him).

Just sayin.........








Mitt Romney should STFU -

because yours truly

has him by the proverbials










Colm Connolly = Mitt Romney = CORRUPTION







I'm gonna dance on Pitten's foot in mouth - civil court grave......

NY Times Blow's: Walter Scott is Not on Trial - Justification of Murder

This item noteworthy of "Walter Scott is Not on Trial", written by NY Times Opinion section writer Charles M. Blow (pic just below from NYT), is brought to us by my FB friend Chris Stevenson (a columnist at BlackCommentator.com).

Journo Charles M. Blow produces a piece of exceptional insight and discussion upon the issues of how pseudo/ faux persons pretend not to be racists. Doing such scheming by the endeavors to claim they lack bias; but sneakily seeking to find a back door way to justify the Police murder of Walter Scott being a result of the hoodlum making a bad decision.










Walter Scott is Not on Trial


Blaming Walter Scott as an Artful Science.


It is best to utilize the words masterful - that my ineptitude's most certainly would only fail to do justice. As is verbatim from the New York Times Opinion Pages, the OpEd Scott is not on Trial specifically states;

I (Charles) not only watched television pundits discuss the shooting of Walter Scott in North Charleston, S.C., last week, I participated in some of those discussions.

And the most disturbing thread that emerged for me was people who said up front that they saw no justification for Scott being killed, but nevertheless stalked around for a back door that would allow them to surreptitiously blame the victim for his own death. Some formulation of “if only he hadn’t run...” was the way this dark door was eased open.

I find it particularly disturbing the way that we try to find excuses for killings, the way that we seek to deprecate a person when they have been killed rather than insisting that they deserved to remain among the living.






Rules being what they are, I'm not allowed to post the entire article here; but you can read it (and the most enlightening polls along side) - at the New York Times (here) - or at the activist/ journalist Chris Stevenson's Black Commentator Facebook posting (here).

As I've said many times heretofore, yours truly was the only Caucasian male in a New York City school, during the era of desegregation. At that time, compared to this, I find the only difference of racial bias to be that - Racists pretend to be non racists; except when they are in the room with racists!

I'm just sayin........








Georgia Pardon's a Woman Executed 60 years ago; but declines to find her not guilty.


For a good example of the hypocrisy of Racism in America, as corroboration of journo Charles M. Blow's contentions....... one need simply look at case by case empirical and hypocrisy even of purported leniency (if you can actually call this insane saga an effort of consideration). In another story from Black Then titled "AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN RECEIVED PARDON 60 YEARS AFTER EXECUTION" - it is written;

Lena Baker, an African American mother of three, was electrocuted at the Georgia State Prison in Reidsyille

She was convicted for the fatal shooting of E. B. Knight, a white Cuthbert, GA mill operator she was hired to care for after he broke his leg. She was 44 and the only woman ever executed in Georgia’s electric chair. For Baker, a Black maid in the segregated south in the 1940’s, her story was a tough sell to a jury of 12 white men. And rumors that she was romantically involved with victim E. B. Knight did not help.

Her murder trial lasted a day -------

In 2005, The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles decided to pardon Lena Baker. Although the board did not find Baker innocent of the crime. It instead found the decision to deny her clemency in 1945 “was a grievous error, as this case called out for mercy.”
emphasis in bold - is mine



Why even bother??? --- Sheessshhh!

May as well get ready America, Police have more gones, semi tanks and riot gear to blow babies up. Unless you are able to paint yourself white and/or will only stay in crowded malls (with mountains of cameras filming) - your life remains in peril. --- It's an empirical fact that Black lives, homeless, poor, non oligarch lives, simply don't matter to Caucasian authorities.






Did Officer Wilson ever receive his million dollar cloud funding?


Nobody's saying!








BTW - the title to this thread, is an obvious play on words, as Charles gets picked on much...

but he takes it all in stride, as noted by a posting upon his Twitter account - of

Karma: Elephant Hunter Crush Killed by Intended Prey

Recently, we reported on how a former female Veteran joined the African activist entity "VetPaw" (see previous GD thread "U.S. Female Vet Now Hunts Elephant Poachers & Park Ranger Killers". Intolerably, there are areas in Africa, where money buys the right for the rich to kill for the fun of it. This time however, an established big game hunter was run over by the bull elephant he sought to murder.





According to the website (now on my hit/chit-list) titled "African Hunting.com" (picture provided by DailyKos diarist 'Leslie Salzillo' diary on the issue - giving credit to - attribution: AfricanHunting.com and Wikipedia/Paul Mannix - Elephant, Amboseli National Park, Kenya/Creative) - it is stated in condolence that;

Dear Chifuti Safaris clients,


It is with deep sadness to announce the passing of Chifuti Safaris professional hunter Ian Gibson. Ian was tragically killed by an elephant bull earlier today while guiding and elephant hunt in Chewore North (lower Zambezi Valley).

The details are just starting to emerge as we write this. However it appears that Ian and his client had been on the tracks of an elephant bull for approximately 5 hours when they decided to take a break and allow the client to rest. Feeling he was quite close to the elephant, Ian and his tracker Robert continued to follow the tracks in hopes of getting a look at the ivory as the client, stayed with the game scout to rest. Robert indicated the bull was in musk. They eventually caught up to the bull, spotting him at about 50-100 meters. The bull instantly turned and began a full charge. Ian and Robert began shouting in order to stop the charge. At very close range, Ian was able to get off one shot before the bull killed him. The scene was very graphic.

Ian Gibson was a fine man and one of the most experienced professional hunters on the African continent. He will be deeply missed by all…

We will provide more details as they become available

Karma is a Bitch to Son's of




I'm against bullies, in any form. Managers, supervisors, brothers, pedo's, police, judges, racists etc., etc. And I'm especially an enemy of those who harm others, simply because they can. Keanu's movie about this planet ridding itself of the human race, to protect the planet - makes sense. Far too much evil upon this 3rd rock from the sun.

While Bad Will Hunting website sends its condolences to the family, my Facebook friends only had Karma on their mind. And all of them are in concur that this self defense killing of the hunter was WAY overdue. But before you are provided a plethora of FB sound offs, it is necessary to address the other issue that now looms large.



WARNING - We all know what is going to happen next.


Unfortunately, we all know they are going to have a mass hunt for this courageous bull Elephant, under one or another guise. Either another hunter to avenge his fellow/ friend; and or to protect man kind from the killer bull.

What about he bull-chit of murderous men?

Elaine Spencer “Of all the creatures, man is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he's the one that possesses malice. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot." - Mark Twain

Laser Haas The Bible is often/ has misquoted the facts in our Torah (10 sayings is actually not just 10). The misnomer is twisted to "Thou shalt not kill"; but is actually - "thou shalt not murder". ------- Self Defense is permitted as such (properly in this case).
