Racist verse of the Star-Spangled Banner that is left out today

Taken from the article linked to below:

No refuge could save the hireling & slave/

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:/

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave/

O’er the land of the free & the home of the brave.

‘The Star-Spangled Banner’s’ racist lyrics reflect its slave owner author, Francis Scott Key


This put tears in my eyes.


Florida Allegedly Altering Coronavirus Data NowThis

What do they call Karen's in Europe?

Americans. 😆

My niece in Spain shared that.

So Maxwell is looking at 35 years - a life sentence at her age. She has every incentive to cooperate

If she can stay alive I bet she will unload most everything but how does that work? Can she get time taken off for each person she exposes? Is there a cap at some point? What is the best way to get the most info out of her?

Jeffery Epstein's Girlfriend To Cooperate With FBI, 'Will Be Naming Names': Report

Published 5 hours ago on Jul 3, 2020By Carl Anthony

Ghislaine Maxwell, who was arrested on Thursday on charges of procuring underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse will be ‘naming names’ and ‘fully co-operating’ with the FBI, several news outlets reported Friday.

Maxwell’s dramatic arrest on sex-trafficking charges yesterday has raised hopes among Epstein victims that prosecutors will untangle a ‘spider web’ of rich and powerful associates of the pair.

Epstein’s former employer Steven Hoffenberg told British newspaper The Sun that the pedophile’s ex-girlfriend ‘knows everything’ and will ‘totally co-operate’ after her arrest.

Hoffenberg said ‘there’s a lot of people very worried’ about what Maxwell could reveal. “She’s going to cooperate and be very important.”

The socialite and daughter of late British publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell is now awaiting transfer to New York to face charges of procuring girls as young as 14 for Epstein to sexually abuse – and could even be held in the same Manhattan jail where Epstein died last year.

If convicted on all counts, Maxwell faces 35 years behind bars at a maximum. It would mean she’d be 93 by the time she’d be released.

What do we know about Katie Johnson who said Trump raped her at 13. She was affiliated with Epstein

Trump, Epstein and the silence of mainstream media

On April 26, 2016, Katie Johnson filed a lawsuit alleging that defendants Donald J. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein had savagely raped her, in 1994, when she was only 13 years old. In addition, the lawsuit alleges that she had been kept as a sex slave by Epstein and was brutally molested, raped, and beaten by both Epstein and Trump over a period of four months, spanning June-September of 1994.
The Lawsuit
Katie Johnson’s civil suit alleges that she was enticed by promises of a modeling career to attend parties hosted by Jeffrey Epstein. Instead, she was made into Epstein’s sex slave and was trafficked to his friends, including Donald J. Trump. Johnson alleges that she had sexual contact with Trump on four different occasions, during this span, each time at the direction of Epstein.
On the first occasion, Johnson “was forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with the use of her hand upon Defendant Trump’s erect penis until he reached sexual orgasm.” The second occasion, “the Plaintiff, Katie Johnson, was forced to orally copulate Defendant Trump by placing her mouth upon Defendant Trump’s erect penis until he reached sexual orgasm.” The third time, “Plaintiff Johnson was forced to engage in an unnatural lesbian sex act with her fellow minor and sex slave Maria Doe, age 12.” Then, “both minors were forced to orally copulate Defendant Trump by placing their mouths simultaneously on his erect penis until he achieved sexual orgasm.”
Afterward, Trump allegedly, “physically pushed both girls away, while berating them for their poor sexual performance.” It was alleged that in the final encounter Trump tied Johnson to a bed and savagely raped her, while she protested and pleaded for him to “please wear a condom.” She further alleges that he then began “violently striking her in the face with his open hand while screaming that ‘he would do whatever he wanted.”

Toppling Monuments, a Visual History

But first this quote, because resistance to the Gov. is as American as Apple Pie and was celebrated by the founders and the movers and shakers of the European Enlightenment:

"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere." --Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1787.


Toppling Monuments, a Visual History - New York Times

By Jacey Fortin
Aug. 17, 2017

History is littered with the shattered remains of toppled statues, and more are toppling now in the American South.

A violent rally this weekend in Charlottesville, Va., centered in part on the city’s plan to relocate a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. A memorial to Confederate soldiers in Durham, N.C., was pulled down by protesters on Monday. Four Confederate monuments were taken down by the city of Baltimore on Wednesday; New Orleans did the same earlier this year.

But stiff opposition remains. Debates are raging over whether the statues should fall because they commemorate those who fought to uphold slavery, or stand because they remind us of a history that cannot be erased.

The United States has been dismantling statues since its very foundation.

One of the earliest recorded instances came in 1776, just five days after the Declaration of Independence was ratified. In a moment that was immortalized in a mid-19th-century painting, soldiers and civilians tore down a gilded statue of Britain’s King George III in Manhattan.


That dismantling was more than symbolic. The leaden king was to be repurposed “to make musket balls, so that his troops will probably have melted Majesty fired at them,” during the Revolutionary War, said a letter from Ebenezer Hazard, New York’s postmaster, to Gen. Horatio Gates.

Globally, iconoclasm has been practiced at least since ancient times. Instances were recorded in the Bible. Medieval Christians smashed sculptures of Ancient Rome. Spanish conquerors destroyed temples of the Aztecs and the Incas.
