NAACP Imposter Sued School Over Race Claims

Let's start by saying this: Suing Howard University in the African-American community is like Suing Yale, Harvard, Berkeley or Northwestern in the Caucasian community. In other words: One better have a darn good case for doing so.

It's not that anyone of these schools can't be sued - as that is another matter entirely.

However, to sue a Historical Black College & University (especially one that is so HIGHLY REGARDED in the African-American community as Howard U) due to discrimination for ones' "Whiteness" and later claim you're "Black" takes the Rachel's Ruse story to another level.

Beyond mental illness, beyond "feeling sorry" beyond any false claims of being "Trans-racial" to the conning nature of what it is.

From the Smoking Gun:

"JUNE 15--The NAACP official who today resigned in the face of evidence that she masqueraded as black once sued Howard University for denying her teaching posts and a scholarship because she was a white woman, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree.

Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the civil case, Smith was chairman of Howard’s Department of Art.

According to a Court of Appeals opinion, Dolezal's lawsuit “claimed discrimination based on race, pregnancy, family responsibilities and gender.” She alleged that Smith and other school officials improperly blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, and denied her scholarship aid while she was a student.

The court opinion also noted that Dolezal claimed that the university’s decision to remove some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition was “motivated by a discriminatory purpose to favor African-American students over” her.

As detailed in the court opinion, Dolezal’s lawsuit contended that Howard was “permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult.”

Judge Zoe Bush dismissed Dolezal’s complaint in February 2004, 18 months after the lawsuit was filed and Dolezal was deposed on several occasions. Bush found no evidence that Dolezal was discriminated on the basis of race or other factors. The D.C. Court of Appeals subsequently affirmed Bush’s decision.

Following the dismissal of Dolezal’s lawsuit (and the Court of Appeals decision), she was ordered to reimburse Howard for a “Bill of Costs” totaling $2728.50. During the case, she was also ordered to pay the university nearly $1000 in connection with an “obstructive and vexatious” court filing that sought to improperly delay her examination by an independent doctor.

Dolezal’s lawsuit, included “claims for medical and emotional distress damages,” according to a court docket."

Disconnection & Bravery: Why Rachel Dolezal Parents Where Right To Expose The Ruse

"To deny the existence of ones birth parents is not only a travesty, but equally constitute an action which unless grave family dynamics exist, frankly should not be done. Birth parent(s) are humans making an conscious choice to extend the miracle of life to another person.

There are unique differences between denial and non-communication.

Many personal family based situations cause the morphing to an route of Non-Communication with a persons' birth parents. Circumstances such as betrayal, incest, abandonment or other deep emotional pain only personal experience can suffice. However, denial is an entire other category in itself.

As to deny existence of birth parents cuts off ones true history, roots and genealogy background.

Furthermore, disconnection from other family members who are not at fault for the physical and psychological shriving of ties, amount to an action equality wrong in nature.

To be frank, as the saying goes, "Two wrongs don't make a right."

The game: deny family, get a tan, wear wigs and braids, adopt a "Black" Father and of course reap any benefits that could have went to a deserving African-American person for herself.

Affirmative Action in reverse, to say the very least.

Ezra Dolezal says he didn't know how to respond the day his adopted sister took him aside and asked him "not to blow her cover" about having a black father.

On that day three years ago, he said, Rachel Dolezal, 37, told him she was starting life anew in Spokane, Washington, where she's now head of the local chapter of the NAACP and chairwoman of a police oversight committee.

Ezra Dolezal, 22, came to visit her from Montana, where their parents live. His adopted sister was on her way to becoming one of the most prominent faces in Spokane's black community.

"She told me not to blow her cover about the fact that she had this secret life or alternate identity," Ezra Dolezal said Saturday. "She told me not to tell anybody about Montana or her family over there. She said she was starting a new life ... and this one person over there was actually going to be her black father," said Ezra Dolezal to CNN on June 14.


Erza Dolezal, who is African-American and Caucasian and the adopted Brother of Rachel, described exactly what he believes was his Sister's true intention in the ruse.

"There was the gradual darkening of the skin and the hair," he said. "She started molding herself into who she is today," Erza Dolezal said to CNN.

He said Dolezal's transformation was tantamount to living in "blackface."

"It's kind of a slap in the face to African-Americans because she doesn't know what it's like to be black," said Ezra Dolezal, whose biological mother was white and father half-black. "She's only been African-American when it benefited her. She hasn't been through all the struggles. She's only been African-American the last few years."

FBI Secret Recording Of Malcolm X Refusing To Sell Out

This is why Malcolm X is the true Civil Rights Hero! Thank you for standing up Malcolm X.

"There is noy s governmental agency that can ever expect any information out of me that is way detrimental to any religionist group or Black group for that matter, in this County. Because they should use that same agency to go find who bombed that church in Alabama," Malcolm X.

Piers Morgan Nails It: 19 disgusting things I learned about the Duggars from their TV interview...

I watched Megyn Kelly’s Fox News interview with Jim-Bob and Michelle Duggar last night.

By the end of it, I felt so angry and nauseated by this pair of dangerous, deluded imbeciles that I wanted to smash my television into smithereens with a pickaxe just to rid myself of their sanctimonious, hypocritical faces.

It was one of the most invidious, repulsive, exercises in brand-protecting bulls**t that I’ve ever had the misfortune to experience.

Their show, which I sincerely hope never gets aired again, is called 19 Kids and Counting.

I’d like to amend that title to 19 Disgusting Things About The Duggars….and Counting.

Here’s why:

1) Their son Josh was a serial child abuser, yet they don’t seem to even realise this salient fact. ‘He was so young,’ they wailed, ‘he’d just turned 14’…. ‘he was so young’…etc, vomit-makingly etc. Here’s the only fact that matters: Josh Duggar sexually molested FOUR of his own young sisters, one as young as 5, and a baby-sitter.

2) They didn’t report him to anyone for 16 months after he first confessed. That’s not them being ‘failed parents’ as they would have us believe. That’s being an accessory to covering up a crime.

3) When they finally did tell someone in authority, it was to a state trooper who did nothing about it and is now languishing in prison on child pornography charges. You couldn’t make that up.

4) The Duggars seem more upset that we now all know about Josh’s disgraceful activities than about the activities themselves. Their doe-eyed exclamations of self-pity were utterly disingenuous.

5) They claim none of the victims knew they were being abused, which is obviously palpable nonsense given that some were awake when it happened. The reality is their parents conned them into thinking the abuse wasn’t as bad as it was. Just as they have, for years, conned them into thinking their weird, twisted, religiously zealous, goody-two-shoes lifestyle is ‘normal’ too.

6) Jim-Bob insisted his son wasn’t a pedophile because he was only 14 and 15 when the abuse occurred. ‘He was a child preying on a child’, he said, as if that makes any real difference.

7) They downplayed the abuse by saying it only lasted ‘seconds’ as if this, too, makes it any less appalling. Abuse is abuse is abuse. The time period is irrelevant.

8) They made this assertion: ‘Similar things happen in other families’. Really? I’m struggling to think of a single other family where a serial child molester has not only got away with his crimes thanks to his parents’ deceit, but has then been made a TV star by the same parents in a show extolling the virtues of family values.

If TLC, the So-Called "Learning Channel" thinks about putting this freak show family back on the air, not only does a petition need to start, but the channel needs to be banned from TV PERMANENTLY! Is this the type of behavior young folks that are being abused today in some household sadly secretly in America -- need to see, hear or worst watch?

Save the excuses of Josh Duggar "being 14". He knew damn well what he was engaging with on his Sisters was wrong. The parents covered it up and lied continuously for years -- plus worst continued LYING more during this "interview" on a so-called Faux News channel called Fox News.

There is no way what-so-ever these folks (NONE OF THEM) should be seen on a TV screen near you. This is beyond disgusting. It downright sinful. Let's hope this is the last hurrah for the Duggar's. - Independent Underground News & Talk

Democrats Seek a Richer Roster to Match G.O.P. - New York Times

Things that make you go ummm....

"WASHINGTON — Over the last few months, Harold M. Ickes, a longtime ally of Hillary Rodham Clinton, has helped organize private meetings around the country with union leaders, Clinton backers and Democratic strategists. The pressing topic: Who will step up to be the Democrats’ megadonors in the 2016 presidential race?

Republican contenders have already secured hundreds of millions of dollars in commitments from a stable of billionaires, including a Wall Street hedge fund executive, a Las Vegas casino magnate, a Florida auto dealer, a Wyoming investor and, of course, the Kansas-born billionaires David H. and Charles G. Koch. But none of the biggest Democratic donors from past elections — for example, the Chicago investor Fred Eychaner, the climate-change activist Tom Steyer and the entertainment mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg — have committed to supporting Mrs. Clinton on nearly the same scale.

“No one has stepped forward as the savior,” said Matt Bennett, a longtime Democratic consultant in Washington.

The leading super PAC backing Mrs. Clinton, Priorities USA Action, has won commitments of only about $15 million so far, Democrats involved with the group’s fund-raising said. And while the absence of a competitive race for the Democratic nomination gives Mrs. Clinton more time to catch up with Republican rivals, her allies are planning to push the party’s wealthiest donors for more money than most of them have ever given.

In planning sessions and one-on-one meetings with donors, Mr. Ickes, who is a Priorities USA board member, and other Clinton supporters are discussing how to raise as much as $300 million for Democratic outside groups. That is almost twice as much as Democratic super PACs and other outside groups spent to help re-elect President Obama in 2012, when conservative super PACs far outspent liberal ones.

This ambitious goal will require the emergence of a new class of at least 20 Democratic donors who can give $5 million or even $10 million each. Mr. Ickes said recruiting them would not be easy.

“Our side isn’t used to being asked for that kind of money,” Mr. Ickes said. “If you asked them to put up $100 million for a hospital wing, they’d be the first in line.”

The hurdles begin with the candidate. While Mrs. Clinton has committed to meeting personally with potential super PAC donors, people close to her say she has not yet grappled with the kind of big-donor courting that has framed the early months of the Republican race."

The Progressive Talk Radio & Podcast Directory for 2015 - Independent Underground News & Talk

We created this and thought it might be helpful.....Feel free to Bookmark if you like!

The question we are asked most often is, "Hey IU News & Talk! You'll have a great show but, where exactly can we find other shows like or similar to yours?"

First, that is a great question. Second, it can and is hard to do so because:

1). The Corporate Mainstream Media and The Big MSM Funders Desire Daily to do their Best to Shut Out or Shut Down Any Voices they Cannot Control.

2). The Internet is Vast and Links to Various Progressive Talk or Internet Radio Show are Everywhere.

3). Although Syndication Streams like iTunes, Stitcher, Tune-In Radio, Player FM, Soundcloud and the like are Easy to Find, Sadly Most of Us are Not Hip to Saving Our Favorite Progressive Talk & Podcast Streams as Favorites and Subscribing to them.

This is where our handy-dandy guide will help with this task!

Hey CNN, Bernie Sanders is Running For President of the United States!!

One would think they would know this, right? Especially considering Bernie just interviewed on the "network" Reliable Sources" Program. Which make this picture, taken from my cell phone either full of straight up propaganda, done on purpose or better yet - a combination of both!

Take a look at the headline. See anything inaccurate about it?



Just in case my kids trophies are blocking a full view, it says: "Martin O' Malley to Become Clinton's First Rival".

Who's Defending the Duggers Girls - The Real VICTIMS!

This post will be a LONG READ, and I'll try to limit my commentary.

It is disappointing to read some (a very small amount of folks) on DU question why folks are discussing Duggargate. These folks have wrote in just, "There is a Piling On" occurring and so on and so forth.

However, as questions rightfully are raised about who knew what when in the Duggar household, more than a moment of reflection needs to focus on the ACTUAL VICTIMS. Four of Josh's Sisters are those victims.

Jim Bob, Michelle and yes Josh are not in anyway more important than the YOUNG FEMALE VICTIMS who were taught by their "parents" all Men are the head of the household and to OBEY them.

Yes, OBEY which means if Jim Bob refused (which it is likely he did) to allow these VICTIMS who were his Daughters to have Counseling, Michelle Obeyed -- covered up this SICK PERVERTED behavior for not only her "Husband" but for Josh, the TLC Royalties, a new house (Built by TLC), fame and publicly. All of this at the expense of ignoring the VICTIMS -- Jim Bob and Michelle's Daughters - who were taught to OBEY, SHUT UP and SMILE.

These folks have no defense, period and should be charged with multiple crimes. Furthermore, I believe more than inappropriate touching likely occurred in the Duggar household and time will reveal the rest of this SICK story.

Meanwhile, the report from Gawker is damning -- to say the least:

"According to the police report released by InTouch, Josh’s father Jim Bob (referred to in the report as “James”) first learned of Josh’s behavior in March 2002, when one victim approached Jim Bob and said that Josh touched her breasts and genitals while she slept.

Jim Bob appears not to have acted on the accusation. In July 2002, Josh, then 14 years old, admitted to the behavior to his father, prompting Jim Bob to “discipline” Josh but not report the incident to the authorities.

In March 2003, according to the report, Josh fondled a victim while he read a book to her. Jim Bob was made aware of this and several more accusations—victims accused Josh of touching their breasts and genitals while they slept, and sometimes while they were awake.

The police report suggests that four of Josh’s sisters were victims. In 2002, there were five sisters living in the Duggar house: Jana, then 12; Jill, 11; Jessa, 10; Jinger, 9; and Joy-Anna, 5.

In March 2003, Jim Bob met with “church elders” to discuss Josh’s behavior, and they decided Josh needed to enter a treatment program. He was sent to a “Christian” program consisting of “hard physical work and counseling” from March 2003 to July 2003. Josh’s mother Michelle later admitted to police that Josh did not see a counselor, and was instead sent “to a family friend who was in the home remodeling business” in Little Rock, Arkansas.

When Josh returned home in July 2003, his father and church elders took him to a state trooper to confess what he’d done. The trooper, Cpl. Hutchins, gave Josh a “very stern talk” but did not charge him with any crimes.

InTouch reports that Hutchins was later arrested on child pornography charges and is currently serving 56 years in prison.

Most of the rest of the world was first introduced to the Duggar family on September 6, 2005 with the one-hour Discovery Health special, 14 Children and Pregnant Again! The show followed the family as they prepared for their 15th child, Jackson, and paved the way for many similar specials, and, ultimately, 19 Kids and Counting on TLC.

According to the police report and InTouch, a Duggar family appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006 was cancelled after a “61-year-old woman” emailed Harpo Studios to warn producers about Josh’s sexual misconduct. Harpo Studios forwarded the information to the Department of Human Services hotline, which trigged an investigation by the Springdale Police Department.

It’s not clear who tipped Oprah off and how she knew about Josh’s misconduct, but Jim Bob and Michelle told police that when Josh was accused of molesting his sisters, a family friend wrote down the accusations in a letter that was then placed in a book in the Duggars’ home. Sometime during 2006, the Duggars loaned the book to another person and the letter was discovered.

Throughout the Springdale Police Department’s investigation, three more Duggar specials aired on Discovery Health in 2006: Raising 16 Children on March 13, 16 Children and Moving In on March 15, and On the Road with 16 Children on June 11.

In December 2006, Springdale police interviewed the Duggars about Josh’s behavior. Jim Bob would not produce Josh for questioning—per InTouch, “when police asked Jim Bob to bring Josh in for an interview in 2006, he attempted to hire a lawyer and refused to produce his son for questioning. At least two lawyers refused to take his case.”

Police ultimately did not file charges against Josh because the three-year statute of limitations had run out.

2007: Duggar message boards reveal Josh’s sexual abuse

Though Jim Bob and Michelle decidedly hid Josh’s misconduct from the press and protected him from arrest, the secret had gotten out. They told police in 2006 that “several members of their church were aware of the situation and had been supportive of the family.”

In May 2007, the allegations surfaced online in a comment on a blog about the Duggars. Commenter “Alice”—who has since been referred to on various Duggar message boards as the originator of the rumor—wrote (emphasis added):

Let me tell you something about the precious Duggars that you don’t know. ... In January, the whole family went to Chicago and taped Oprah Winfrey show. Oprah wined and dined them for one week. You know that had to cost some pretty pennies. As you may have noticed, that show never aired and it never will. Oprah was informed that Josh, the oldest son, had been molesting his sisters. Yes, this is the truth. Oprah turned them over to the Arkansas State Police Child Protection Agency and the Washington County Child Protection Agency.

They have been investigated to some length. Jim Bob Duggar told the producers of the show that he built a small church out back for his followers. HIS FOLLOWERS. GET REAL. THE MAN IS A FRAUD. In April, they were in court with their story. They have to report to Arkansas Department of Human Services every six months..

They have lied and lied about their son to protect him at their daughters expense.

For some unknown reason the boy is still in the home with the girls. God only know if this is still going on. In my eyes he is a CHILD MOLESTOR. HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE HOME. What kind of parents cover up for one child and hurt the others. I do not believe that this is what God has in mind for them. Frauding the American people and taking their money and living off of it.They did not build their home by themselves. They hired it done. TheDiscovery Health Channel and the TLC channel wrote them a check for over $200,000. for the to build the house. Everything inside the house was given to them except the kitchen. They did buy that themselves. The rest is all free. ...


Alice added, “God’s honest truth that the molestation happened. It happened to four of his 5 sisters. The oldest daughter was not touched. The second daughter is the one who caught him doing this. There was no rape involved, but molested. I could go into detail, but I won’t. Of course, you can find nothing about the charges. The Duggar’s want to keep this hid. Wouldn’t you?”
