Virginia’s Attorney General Admits To Wearing “Black Face” and Virginia’s Lt. Governor, Whose Face Is Actually Black Stands Accused Of Sexual Assault

My home state of Virginia just cannot get itself out of the news as it pertains to scandals. With three prominent politicians swept up in scandals, I wonder how many more will “come out of the woodwork,” so to speak.

Crisis in Virginia: Scandal sweeps up 3 Virginia officials

Attorney General Mark Herring issued a statement saying he wore brown makeup and a wig in 1980 to look like a rapper during a party as a 19-year-old student at the University of Virginia.

Herring — who has been among those calling on Northam to resign — said he was “deeply, deeply sorry for the pain that I cause with this revelation.” He said that in the days ahead, “honest conversations and discussions will make it clear whether I can or should continue to serve as attorney general.”

Then, within hours, Vanessa Tyson, the woman whose sexual assault allegations against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax surfaced earlier this week, issued a detailed statement saying Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 during the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

Virginia’s governor Ralph Shearer Northam has already developed amnesia over a photo that surfaced depicting him either in “Black face” or in a KKK outfit. At first he stated that he was in the photo and then a day later, he stated that he “believes then and now that he is not in the racist photo.” And though many are calling for him to resign, as of today, he has not done so.

And now, Virginia’s Attorney General, Mark Herring, has stated that he too, wore ‘brown face’ and an AFRO wig to a party to represent a rapper that he loved to listen to. Now, if I liked say, Pink, I am not going to wear ‘white face’ and color my hair ‘pink’ to showcase my love for Pink’s music. Descendants of slaves celebrate holidays and we don’t go around buying up white shoe polish and spreading it all over our faces to depict our mortal enemy. But meanwhile, our mortal enemy is busy buying up black shoe polish to depict those whom they hold racist attitudes towards and think it funny and entertaining to do so. This is why I have often stated that we do indeed need to know who is underneath that hood and who is underneath that black shoe polish because how are we to retain any semblance of health if our doctor has just scrubbed off black shoe polish and then proceeds to don that white jacket and come at us with some medical advice? We need to know if judges have just taken off a white hood, thrown off their white sheet, only to don a judge’s robes and proceeded to throw the book at us because of their racist attitudes. We don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell because our enemies are not just ‘good ole boyz driving busted up pickup trucks and sporting raggedy ass mouths’, they are our doctors, lawyers who misrepresent us, judges who throw the book at us because it is their privilege to do so thanks to racism, prejudice, bigotry and white supremacy. Racism kills, racism imprisons, racism is why Black America is in the condition it is in today.

Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring are not the only two politicians in Virginia who are ‘guilty’ of being blatant, outrageous, unapologetic racists. Every single white face in politics and out of it is racist, bar none. And yes, I said, “Unapologetic,” because despite their ‘forced apologies’, not one of those flaming racists is sorry for what they are, not one! Rich white men never suffer consequences for being what they are; depraved, debased sociopaths hyped up on a fake euphoria of superiority. Those debased creatures are privately lauded for what they stand for even as they are publicly shamed. And so just as there is no need for Virginia’s governor to resign, there is no need for the Attorney General to resign for what will take their place will be no different and certainly no better.

As for Black-assed Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who is alleged to have forced a woman to perform oral sex on him, he may have to answer for that in a court of law seeing as how his accuser has been shopping around for a law firm. And though Fairfax has stated, for the record, that the sex act was consensual, apparently, his ‘victim’ disagrees.

What I am not understanding is why they are just now calling this, “A Crisis In Virginia,” since there has always been this crisis in Virginia since Virginia is loaded down with stomp down racists and sexual predators. This is nothing new. This is not shocking news. The history of this state proves that. Streets are named for Confederate generals, statues commemorating the confederacy are everywhere. Confederate flags are seen more than the national flag, which stands for the same thing the confederate flag stands for and so why two flags, I don’t know since they are one and the same. Who’s fooling who? Because if descendants of slaves are to pick which flag is more racist, there is no contest, both are equally racist. We don’t have to physically live on Confederate Boulevard, but we know we do because our history up to present day proves that we do. We don’t have to live on Plantation Lane to know that we still live there because we never made it off the plantation. We don’t have to walk the Confederate Trail because the confederacy is all around us. We live and breathe the confederacy every single day of our miserable lives, made miserable by ‘good ole boyz’ like Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring. We are systematically murdered by racists in white coats in hospitals and medical centers all across this shithole. We are systematically incarcerated by racists in black robes all across this racist shithole. We are systematically herded into ghettos every single day thanks to gentrification put in to play by racists all across this shithole. There is no aspect of our lives that is not controlled by racist shits like Northam and Herring and we know this and so no, this is not a ‘new crisis’ for us. It is an ongoing crisis that is a direct result of culture of systemic racism perpetrated against us by the most vile and deviant filth to ever suck air! It is a crisis of invention; a crisis of intention, the intent is to eradicate us even as ‘so-called’ fun is being poked at us. How sick is that???!!!!

Who’s in it for B?: B. Smith, Black Women, and America’s Normalized Contempt

“The story is both enraging and heartbreaking, depicting a black woman buried alive in a racial paradigm that thrives in her disrespect. Additionally, this story exposes B. Smith as a casualty in a much larger war against black women. Specifically, this story depicts the disrespected black woman as a spectacle rendered entertainment in a normalized evil.

Truthfully, Gasby, his child, and his girlfriend should be imprisoned for abusing a disabled woman and charged with robbery for allocating her money to fund said abuse. But because their actions are in accordance with the pervasive anti-blackness of white hegemony, B.Smith is not an abused woman, but an entertainer worthy of gossip not serious or legal contemplation. “

I am raging mad over this because this is just ‘business as usual’ when it comes to the depiction of Black women by white-owned media. Until we can tell “OUR” story, it will always be “HIS”story that is told!

What B. Smith’s husband and HIS daughter are doing to her is just absolutely unforgivable. That whoremonger lived a life of luxury and ease on B. Smith’s dime and now that she is suffering from Alzheimer’s and is not in her right mind, his lazy ass, has kicked her to the curb, while still living in her house, and has moved HIS white mistress in and so is it any wonder, he needed to take a ‘white’ mistress? He is trying to justify why he is cheating on a woman who is a saint married to garbage when all is said and done. For the love of !!!!!

Whispers of a Womanist

The most profound of black male leaders were advocates for black women. Men like Malcolm X and Thomas Sankara come to mind, their praxis and words providing enlightenment and inspiration to the black collective thoroughly vested in admiration and reverie for a lineage and legacy birthed from and anchored in the black female body. Though it has been decades since Malcolm X spoke the poignant words “the black woman is the most disrespected person in the United States” his words remain a truth lost in an environment of performative reformation. Perhaps the most imperative component of Malcolm X’s statement is that he describes the black woman as a “person,” an assertion contested repeatedly by a media and world infested by a white hegemonic ideology. 

This notion of black dehumanization is best illustrates in the news— a consistent source of anti-black propaganda. The Washington Post recently featured a story on…

Other Prominent White Supremacists Are Calling For The Resignation Of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam Over A Photo That Depicted What He Really Is, Just Another Coward In A Sheet And Hood And A Fan Of Black Shoe Polish On His Face

Hillary “Lock ALL Blacks Up!” Clinton is all but foaming at the mouth while calling for the resignation of Virginia’s governor, Ralph Northam over a photo recently come to light on his medical school yearbook page. This coming from a woman who claimed that Black youth were ALL SUPER PREDATORS WHO NEEDED TO BE BROUGHT TO HEEL! Seriously?!! Hillary Clinton really wants to feign outrage over Ralph Northam’s KKK outfit and Black face photo op?

“We also have to initiate an organized effort against descendants of slaves…. They are not just ex-slaves anymore. They are often the kinds of fierce Black motherfuckers that are called super predators. No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel, and the president has asked the FBI to launch a very concerted effort against descendants of slaves, everywhere.” – Hillary Clinton

Hillary and Bill Clinton’s ‘concerted efforts’ consisted of locking up as many descendants of slaves as they could and so is it any wonder that there are over 2.5 million descendants of slaves locked behind prison walls? No indeed not. I get so goddamn sick and tired of stomp down flaming racists pretending to feign outrage over what some other stomp down flaming racist does. What is the point in protesting the likes of your worthless racist ass? Descendants of slaves are well aware that none of you racists are any different from the next because if you were, we would not be in the situation we are in as it pertains to low economic and educational achievements, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, gentrification, guns and drugs distributed in our few remaining neighborhoods teeming with prostitution and drug addiction and the list of the like is endless. So Virginia governor Northam decked out in a KKK outfit or in ‘Black face’ is not news to me. I only wish it were.

Northam’s hour-long news conference about a racist photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the Ku Klux Klan’s signature white hood and robes in his medical school yearbook page was an inflection point in the saga that now drags into its third day. The bizarre press conference at the governor’s mansion featured denials that he ever dressed up in a KKK robe and hood, pledges that he was never drunk enough to forget a situation like that and a revelation that Northam once did darken his face to resemble Michael Jackson during a dance contest in 1984.

“I believe now and then that I am not either of the people in this photo,” Northam said. “This was not me in that picture. That was not Ralph Northam.”

But the press conference raised more questions than it answered, including how Northam could admit he was in the photo on Friday before taking it all back on Saturday. And why he thought it would help to admit he had once dressed up in blackface as a way to resolve questions about the yearbook photo that features someone in blackface.

On Friday, the governor admitted that he was in the photo, but neglected to state if he was the one in the KKK outfit or if he was sporting ‘Black face’ after having just graduated from medical school, swore an oath to “Do no harm,” and then proceeded to hang his “The doctor is in” shingle up and make sick Black folks, well? And of course we are to believe that Ralph Northam is the only white piece of shit that has done this. He is an anomaly and not the norm? Is this what we are to believe by all the racists calling for Northam’s resignation as if his actions were an absolute and complete surprise to ALL the other racists who have done exactly what Northam has done, only their photos have yet to surface or have been destroyed so as not to share the limelight with Northam?

Gov. Ralph Northam admits he was in 1984 yearbook photo showing figures in blackface, KKK hood

RICHMOND —Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Friday acknowledged appearing in a “clearly racist and offensive” photograph in his 1984 medical school yearbook that shows a man in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe.
“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he said. “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment.”

But now governor Northam is suffering from amnesia since one day he admits that he is in the racist photo and the next day he “believes now and then that he is not either of the people in the photo.” It is quite obvious that governor Northam is not well-versed in doing damage control or either his handlers have intentionally threw him under the bus for how can he effectively govern a state when he appears to be suffering from a mental defect? Donald Trump is too but no one has called for his resignation and so it would appear that white men who suffer from severe mental defects should not be called to resign since every single white man who is in politics is suffering from a severe mental defect for if they are not why then is this country descending rapidly into a hell of their making?

There should be no calls for the resignation of Virginia governor Ralph Northam, just as there should be no calls for the resignation of Donald Trump because where would we find a white man who is anything other than that which is depicted in the above photo blatantly displayed in a medical school yearbook? Descendants of slaves literally put their lives in the hands of flaming racists when we go to the doctor. We put our lives in the hands of stomp down flaming members of the Ku Klux Klan when we meet with a lawyer over a personal injury lawsuit. We put our lives in the hands of monsters when we go before judges who, before donning that black robe, just stepped out of a white robe with a hood attached to it. And yet whites cannot for the life of them wonder why descendants of slaves are a ‘thankless lot’? What the hell should we be thanking you for? For having dragged us over here? For having enslaved us? For having whipped and shackled and raped our ancestors? For having experimented on us even as those experiments continue to this day? We are a people who are without a grain of hope because our lives are at the mercy of warped, twisted, sick and deranged, psychopathic, depraved sociopaths and there is none among the lot of you that this does not apply to. You ALL own this, pink-assed motherfuckers! So sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because you are nothing more than an opportunist who sees a chance to denounce what another of your kind has done only because he didn’t properly cover his shit up or destroy it. You want your fucked up political party in control and so you will pretend for five minutes that you are shockingly appalled over the devil we see when you are just as evil and fucked up as Ralph Northam. We are not fooled by your antics, not for one goddamn second!

Hillary Clinton had the goddamn unmitigated gall to refer to Black youth as ‘SUPER PREDATORS’ when there is no greater SUPER PREDATOR on this planet than those of the pasty-assed variety since who other than those parasites have managed to slither all across this planet stealing, enslaving, raping, pillaging and committing other atrocities all in the name of democracy and humanitarianism when those two words would refuse to even stand side by side with evil so depraved, it should not even exist? You self-righteous, holier-than-thou, stinking, steaming piles of hypocrisy, shut the fuck up! Virginia’s governor Ralph Northam need not step down since what would take his place would be his clone sporting ‘Black face’ underneath a fucking white hood! History has proved time and time again that the white man is the enemy to every blade of grass, every mammal and fish in the ocean, every animal on land and every pitiful descendant of slaves at the mercy of those twisted demons.

But all of a sudden, now that the shit has hit the fan over Northam’s photo, Eastern Virginia Medical School is now going to review their yearbook policy to figure out how this happened.

“In concert with our Board of Visitors’ leadership, I will direct that an external investigation be conducted as soon as possible to review all of our past yearbooks, determine the processes for publishing those yearbooks; discover what, if any, administrative oversight was exercised; examine our campus culture; and provide recommendations for future actions,” school President Dr. Richard Homan said in a statement posted to the school’s website.

“We will move quickly to assemble an appropriate panel to conduct this investigation — a panel of advocates for diversity and inclusion representative of our greater community, including African Americans and other people of color; a diverse panel that can apply a critical eye to this issue,” he added.

Now, there is going to be an ‘external investigation’, now there is going to be a ‘panel of advocates’, now there is going to be talk about ‘diversity and inclusion’, now there is going to be representation of ‘African Americans’ when this photo was initially placed in Eastern Virginia Medical School’s year book in 1984 and now THIRTY-FIVE years later, it is finally time for an investigation. We all should know that this investigation is a crock of shit seeing as how it is the year 2019 and they are just getting around to launching an investigation but only after one of their students is being publicly shamed over his yearbook’s photo choice. And newsflash, people who come here from Africa do not need ‘representation’ and descendants of slaves will never receive ‘representation, due process, or inclusion’ because we are Amerikkka’s shame and guilt, those Africans who willingly come here are not! We will always feel the lash of the whip. We will always be the brunt of racist jokes. We will always suffer for a crime we did not commit. We will always submit our bodies to be experimented on by those who think it funny that we suffer at their hands and die. We will always be the shame of Amerikkka no matter what you do to us because you cannot erase the truth no matter how hard you try. You are what you are. It is bred into you and you freely accept the brand of racism, prejudice, hatred and bigotry that you market because you are an atrocity that is no different from what sired you. Even as you state that you should not be held accountable for what your ancestors put in play, yes you should because you uphold and carry their vile legacy forward every single day and you do it with great relish, just as they did.

And so no, I am never surprised over the vile and atrocious shit that ‘surfaces’ whenever some other racist has an agenda which in this case was the so-called umbrage taken over Northam’s stance on late-term abortions. Northam’s racist picture did not surface because another racist suddenly had an awakening; an epiphany, Northam’s racist picture surfaced because of an alleged agenda over abortion, ‘alleged’ because what racist even cares about the life of a child? When whites will hand their children guns at the age of 7, how on earth could they then turn around and scream and wail against abortion? All whites are defective since you are too busy trying to destroy us than even attempt a cure for what ails you; racism, prejudice, bigotry, hatred and a predilection for murder. But then, without those defects, you wouldn’t exist because they are the essence of you. And that is why you must destroy humanity because you view humanity as an existential threat to your existence.

There is nothing on this planet that can make whites happy since they can have all that money can buy and yet what do they do with it? Build bombs to destroy and kill. Enslave, steal and plunder. Wage war and induce suffering. Destroy the planet while claiming “Victory!” Go ‘vegan’ while killing animals for human consumption. Wipe out entire Indigenous tribes just because they can. “Go green” while buying an SUV. Yes, you are defective and because you are, those of us who are ‘humanity defined’ suffer for it. We are at the mercy of monsters and so save your vile breath! Ralph Northam is no different from the rest of you depraved, defective, monstrous sociopaths!

On The Streets…..Of America

I just watched a video on homelessness and I was quite struck by a brilliant observation from someone who commented on the video.

“People oppose welfare but they defend monopolism with every tooth and nail. They’re both forms of wealth redistribution. The only reason anyone has a good paying job is because they’re employed by companies who are somehow protected from competition, either by IP, geography, zoning laws, or licensing and permit schemes. The same laws prohibit individuals from employing themselves, resulting in widespread poverty. Anyone who has a good paying job has not a square inch of room to complain about welfare.

Nobody can be expected to get a job without a home. If all the money we spend on building new prisons were used instead to build public apartment high rises, crime would drop, minimum wages would go further, and modest rent rates could be a source of public revenue rather than a constant tax liability. The government collects more than enough taxes to guarantee that every citizen has a safe, clean place to sleep and bathe. I don’t care if lazy people chose instead to sit around their apartments all day doing nothing. It’s cheaper than prisons and more civilized than abandoning the poor to loitering the streets, prostitution, drugs, shoplifting, mugging, breaking into homes, sleep in filth, spread bugs and germs and get sick all the time.” – by Ox1A3C3E7

That comment is spot on! We have no problem with the fact that monopolies are encouraged when mere decades ago, there were laws in place to prevent monopolies, but that is a thing of the past. And now because of it, corporate greed runs amok, unchecked and add into the mixture the fact of huge tax breaks for these mega-corporations that have no competition and the people are held hostage by them. How many cable companies are in existence today? Telephone companies? Microsoft software is a monopoly since our computer systems use Microsoft software damn near exclusively. All of this leads to boundless profits for corporations while wages for those who work at the bottom rungs of those corporations earn wages that would not keep a hamster in feed, thus leading to hunger, homelessness and hopelessness. And what does the government do? It continues to aid and abet these corporations into becoming monopolies by refusing to break them up and also by encouraging the growth of monopolies with our tax dollars. Amazon is yet another ‘prime’ example even as Donald Trump likes to pretend to take umbrage with Jeff Bezos. My guess would be that he is just jealous of the fact that Bezos has far surpassed him in business acumen which Trump never had to begin with.

Meanwhile, video after video can be viewed that showcases the plight of homelessness, year after year and yet what is done to rein this in? Nothing. Just talk and more talk and hand wringing. Anyone can follow a homeless person around with a camera for a few days to get an idea of what life is like for the homeless, but when all is said and done, what good does that do? It only elicits a few comments and likes for those comments and suggestions and ideas and then on to the next. The sad fact is that ALL of us are headed where the homeless are. People are not paying attention to the fact that those who are sitting on Skid Row in Anytown, USA are going to have plenty of company. The plight of those who are already homeless will soon be felt by us all because no one is seriously trying to do anything about what millions of people are dealing with every single day. It matters not if I write poetry about the homeless or if people post videos about the homeless because if there is no real feasible solutions to throw at the problems that cause homelessness, the situation is going to continue to worsen.

Those of us who are comfortably looking at the situation from afar are not even thinking that we shall soon be in their shoes. Some of us are content to think that our jobs will always be there as will our pensions. I wouldn’t count on that because pension funds are being raided as I type this and Social Security does not pay enough to live on. And though there are suggestions to move oversees or to Latin American countries where your Social Security will go further, that is just not feasible for everyone. And with many of those countries that are named as great retirement havens in the news for having mass protests over a lack of food, medicine and housing, who in their right mind would head to those areas flaunting their ‘privilege’ in the face of mobs of people, gaunt and sunken-eyed looking to feed their hungry children? Take your ass on over to Venezuela and see how you fare. Try Honduras. Guatemala. Mexico City, Mexico. Either get caught up in drug warfare or get caught up in a United States staged coup against a Latin American country. But either way, your situation is not going to be roses and all things bright and beautiful forever. And even in countries like Ecuador and Costa Rica, the natives are going to get mighty sick and tired of foreigners coming in buying up everything for pennies on the dollar and paying them pennies to wait on them hand and foot.

And as usual, it is mostly whites who can take themselves off when the shit hits the fan for them while those who already have the shit hitting the fan, must stay and deal with a country that is rapidly descending into Third world status. Some of you may think it funny that hookworms are dripping out of the assholes of homeless people, nationwide, but it’s not. Some of you may think it funny that typhus is making the rounds of the homeless population in multiple cities, but it’s not. Add to those issues are the other physical and mental illnesses that most homeless people are dealing with and what that means is that hospitals are overwhelmed with emergency room visits by people whom they cannot collect payment from.

People try and act as though they cannot understand that mass homelessness costs more than housing and necessary services to stabilize the homeless once they have been housed and with communicable diseases on the rise, that is no small problem especially seeing as how there are diseases that no antibiotic can cure. When serious plagues start resurfacing and plagues never before seen start occurring, what is going to be the exit strategy for that? There is none. We’d ALL better wake up to the fact that homelessness is not just impacting those who are sitting out on the sidewalks or who are sitting inside tents or living in their vehicles, it is going to impact us all in some way or another. Something for you to think about while shopping for chicken wings and hoagie ‘meat’ for your Superbowl parties. What we ‘give’ importance to is just too ludicrous for words given the seriousness of the situation as it pertains to the rapid descent of this shithole called America. People are homeless, sick and hungry while those of us who have not yet joined them are anxiously awaiting the Superbowl since bets have been placed and there are parties to be hosted. It is no wonder we are sinking like a stone since we will get behind anything that will distract us from the truth and from seeing those who have already gone where we too shall go. And you can take that to the bank!

Is Meat Addictive?

Bill knocked this one out of the ballpark! Is meat addictive or are you just addicted to doing what you are told? Apparently, it is just too exhausting to think for oneself.

The Tobacco Institute assured many generations that smoking brought many positively wonderful benefits to many millions of people around the world. They blew billows of smoke clouds to win addicts to their sacrosanct product by documenting what a smoker liked to hear, to hear about research on low “tar” tobaccos, microfiber filtration, dust-free packages, outstandingly mild puffs — all smoke screens to direct attention away from the addictive nature of nicotine.

Lucky Strike

Within a statistical error range of 3%, you can find as many climate-change deniers among scientists as there are round-earth deniers.

Advertising suggested that most doctors chose Camel cigarettes. The brand that helps them keep alert to their patients’ concerns — a demanding practice according to Tobacco Institute polls. Doctors don’t smoke many Camels these days, but Big Pharma does not reward many physicians for prescribing vegan diets to their patients, do they?

While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela

Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.

 

Maduro claimed an attempted coup backed by the “gringo empire” was under way and urged supporters – and crucially the armed forces – to resist it “at all costs”.

“We are defending the right to the very existence of our Bolivarian Republic,” Maduro said, accusing his foes of trying to steal Venezuela’s oil, gas and gold: “They intend to govern Venezuela from Washington. Do you want a puppet government controlled by Washington?”
 
 

Nicolás Maduro, the duly elected president of Venezuela has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela. The Trump Administration’s response was to ignore the demand claiming that Maduro has been replaced by Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed president of Venezuela and CIA installed puppet. Quick to follow Washington’s recognition of Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela were Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica. Brazil’s new far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, likewise followed suit since he is also just another Washington puppet.

Maduro is absolutely right in that this is indeed, “an attempted coup backed by the ‘gringo empire’.” And Russia has warned the Trump Administration against using military action in Venezuela to force Nicolas Maduro to step down and allow Washington’s puppet to become the next president of Venezuela.

 

We warn against this,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with International Affairs magazine, a Russian media outlet. “We believe that this would be a catastrophic scenario that would shake the foundations of the development model we see in the Latin American region.”

Russia has supported Maduro’s government politically and militarily. The Kremlin dispatched two Russian bombers to Venezuela last month, a provocative move that raised red flags in Washington.
 
 

Once again, the Russians are trying to stop yet another blatant takeover by Washington of a sovereign state. And the Russians are the problem? The Trump Administration has stated that “all options are on the table,” including sanctions and military action. What has happened when the U.S. has used the military to do its dirty work?

 

David Smilde, a Venezuela expert from the Washington Office on Latin America advocacy group said: “Look at Somalia, look at Afghanistan, look at Iraq: all of those cases were supposed to be short military actions and actually what they do is end up generating enormous costs in terms of loss of life and infrastructure.”

 
 

But Washington does not care about loss of life or infrastructure since our tax dollars are then used to rebuild countries that the U.S. has bombed to smithereens and the people who are killed are of no consequence just as we are not, case in point is Iraq. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq and now Americans are footing the bill for the rebuilding of that country even as the U.S. government is ‘shutdown’. The U.S. had no business sending the military into Afghanistan and yet our tax dollars are being used to train Afghan forces to attack the Taliban while U.S. military forces are protecting Afghan opium in order to send shipments back to the U.S. and straight into the veins of Amerikkkans while at the same time claiming a “war on drugs.”

Every single time the U.S. sets its sights on another country, the people of that country suffer for it as does its infrastructure and those of us in the US suffer as well because we are told that there is no money and yet, somehow and mysteriously, money can always be found to buy more missiles and drones to attack countries that have done nothing to warrant the attack. And yet, the Trump Administration is yelling and screeching and grandstanding about the need to build a wall to keep those south of the border from coming to the U.S. when in fact, the Trump Administration’s policies are making life so miserable for those people, they are leaving their devastated countries and attempting to cross the border into the U.S., only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets. The policies of the U.S. government has caused those people to have to flee their homes and now the U.S. wants to build a wall to keep out the results of policies it put into play to force people to run for their lives? That is insanity!

Iraq’s officials have stated that they want the U.S. out of their country. Libya is still in flames. Somalia, likewise. Afghanistan, the same. Yemen, indeed! And the list is endless. This is ALL because the ‘American empire’ is collapsing and intends to take as many countries down with it as it descends. It is like a gigantic snake that has had its head chopped off, but its tail is still thrashing about, destroying everything it strikes. This bitch, Amerikkka, even in its death throes is still dangerous and the only hope for other countries to make it through to the last thrash of this dying empire is Russia, China and Iran. Russia most definitely understands this since they have already sent military bombers to Venezuela, just as they had to with Syria because if not for the Russians, Syria would have a Washington installed puppet dictator. Maybe Russia is finally understanding what should have been understood hundreds of years ago in that no one can trust Amerikkkans. That ship should have long since sailed. Look at how this country treats its own citizens. Throws them under the bus at every opportunity even to the point of impoverishing those who work FOR the government. How can any Amerikkkan citizen still believe that the U.S. government gives a damn about their safety when TSA federal workers earn a measly $30,000 and have not been paid in over 30 days and come Friday, will miss a second paycheck? Homeland Security federal workers are not being paid and what was that agency set up to do? Keep US safe from so-called terrorists. The terrorists are sitting up on your tax dollars and strutting about the halls of congress and are inside the White House causing you much grief, anguish and hand-wringing since you cannot pay your bills, are about to lose your housing, are about to see your credit score take a nosedive, are about to lose your car and empty your pantry. The U.S. government is not some great entity that ever stood for a belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because the average Amerikkkan is anything but happy.

Are you happy to be broke and destitute and in debt? Are you happy to live paycheck to paycheck? Are you happy about the fact that the government can just shutdown at any time and force you to work without pay over a trumped up excuse for the shutdown? Are you happy to see politicians that they claim you elect, act like children on the playground while your lives are spiraling down, out of control? Do you think the homeless are happy to be living on the streets? Do you think they are happy to have worms falling out of their asshole since hookworm has made a comeback which until now was only found in third world countries? Do you think they are happy battling typhus and hepatitis A,B and C? Do you think children are happy to go to bed at night with their stomachs growling? Do you think those people who just got shot dead in a bank in Florida were happy when those bullets pierced their flesh? Who the hell is happy in this shithole? Who? When federal workers are reporting that they are living paycheck to paycheck, how do you think others are living? Are you happy since you are sitting somewhere likely to blow yourself up with your meth lab? Are you happy that in order to make it through the day, you have to shoot up some heroin that your own government made possible for you to obtain since your government has instructed the military to guard some poppy plants in Afghanistan in order to send them here to feed your addictions since you are just too happy for words? Do you think Amerikkka’s 2.5 million prisoners are happy since many of them were imprisoned on bullshit drug charges while the U.S. government is the biggest drug cartel in the world? Yeah, we’re all fucking happy. Broke, drunk, high, stupid and happy, that’s US!

Stop following the bouncing ball. Look at where they don’t want you to look. When they are focusing your attention on a specific action orchestrated by them such as a government shutdown, then you can best believe that some foul ass shit is going down elsewhere. There is no U.S. media coverage of what the Trump Administration has been initiating in Venezuela. If they are so worried about people from south of the border coming to the U.S. then why are they hell bent on doing everything that would increase the numbers of those attempting to cross the border? It is all smoke and mirrors, people! Smoke and mirrors. Every single news article that I have read has been all about bad news. Verizon is laying off a percentage of its workforce. Apple is laying off people. Despite announcements of increased holiday spending, stores are still announcing closures. J.C. Penney has announced that it may have to follow in Sears’ footsteps. And as this empire collapses, Wall Street will be the last to go down. They are the musicians on this Titanic, furiously intent on ignoring the sinking ship until they are underwater. But sink, they will. Again, it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, people, smoke and mirrors and ‘follow the bouncing ball’ as they fuck up another country by installing a puppet dictator while ignoring the legitimate one. Amerikkka has been in the business of regime change for too damn long and it will not cease until this empire goes the route of Rome and we are definitely headed there. Just take a look around you. I see no ‘amber waves of grain.’ And if you see any, believe me, those waves of grain contain a known carcinogen, glyphosate. And you can thank your government for that as well. If you have not gotten a clue yet, then I don’t know what there is to say about you!

I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote a few years ago. It seems an apt ending.

Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

In case you forgot, they just recently flew an American doctor back to the U.S. They believe he was exposed to Ebola.

A Tale Of Two Coons

First up, we have old school coon Jesse Jackson, who is all bent-out-of shape over what Donald Trump served the Clemson Tigers at the White House.

Jesse Jackson: White House serving Clemson a fast-food meal was ‘disgraceful’

The Rev. Jesse Jackson said he was “offended” that President Donald Trump served fast food to the Clemson Tigers at the White House after they claimed the College Football Playoff national championship.

“The national champions deserved better,” said Jackson, a native of Greenville, South Carolina.

With the White House staff on furlough because of the federal government’s partial shutdown, Trump paid to have a buffet of burgers and pizza brought in Monday to feed the Tigers.

Now, I will admit that I couldn’t give a shit for sports. Hell, I didn’t know anything about the Clemson Tigers down to the fact that they played football. But quite actually, I don’t care about what is fed to some grown ass men who are chasing some ball around in the hopes to head to the NFL. If they didn’t want the shit Trump served them, then they did not have to eat it. What I do care about is the fact that there are people about to lose their housing assistance and their food stamps and that will impact many, many children who are already living in poverty. What has Jesse Jackson’s coonhead ass said about that? Not a goddamn thing and he won’t because he has never been about a damn thing that counted because if he was, he would have been assassinated long before now. Any so-called pro-Black civil rights leader or Black nationalist from the 60s who is still walking around, free as a bird, is a coonhead sellout. Because the true warriors for Black people have all been either assassinated or are sitting up in prison or have died in prison or are in exile. Jesse Jackson’s ass does not fit the profile of a ‘true warrior’ for Black people.

Jesse Jackson finds it ‘disgraceful’ what some mostly white men were served at the White House when he is not concerned at all about the plight of millions of mothers and their children who will be sitting out on the streets if there is no end to this government shutdown, who will go hungry if there is no end to this government shutdown. Apparently, that is not ‘disgraceful’ to him because he ain’t about shit! Why did he have not a goddamn thing to say about the fact that those rich whites in congress and in the White House are sitting all up on the dole and are still receiving their ill gotten gains while those who also paid taxes to this shithole, since everything in this bitch is taxed, are about to lose their housing assistance and some paltry ass food stamps that don’t even extend throughout the entire month, because if they did, I would not be carting people to food pantries to supplement what their low wages and food stamps don’t cover? And some of the people I haul around are working two jobs and yet, they are shamed as though they are living the good life, sitting back feeding their children filet mignon while living high off the hog. That is so not happening. I am almost in tears when I see what is sticking out of the tops of the grocery bags because it’s not fit for children to eat, but since it stretches, that’s what they eat; cheap hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly, white bread, hamburger, Hamburger Helper, Ramen noodles and more shit of the like. And what’s sitting at food pantries is hardly any better. And I have seen white folks in those places begging for toilet tissue to wipe their ass, it’s that bad since obviously food stamps don’t pay for toilet tissue and so food pantries stock some and they run out of items of that nature real quick.

This is why the Black community is in horrible shape because the so-called Black leaders use the ‘bully pulpit’ for ALL the wrong reasons. Instead of calling out congress and the president over this childish display of foolishness in that Pelosi called for Trump to reschedule the SOTU wherein Trump responded with grounding Pelosi’s plane from taking her to Afghanistan and elsewhere, Jackson instead admonished Trump over what he fed some well-fed football players completely ignoring the immense impact this shutdown will have on millions of innocent people including children. Someone asked me the other day, “Are there any adults in the room?” To which I responded, “Quite actually, no and more’s the damn pity!”

And now we come to another old school coon, Gladys Knight, who just commented that she is most proud to sing the National Anthem at the Superbowl.

Gladys Knight Comments on Colin Kaepernick and Super Bowl: ‘I Am Here to Give the Anthem Back Its Voice’

“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” “It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.

“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good — I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.

“I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”

What is unfortunate is how stupid Gladys Knight really is in that she thinks that a song that symbolizes what this nation stands for which is theft, slavery and genocide, in her opinion, “needs its voice back, uniting us when we hear it, bringing us all together.” Who the fuck is she kidding and how many times was she dropped on her damn head? Oh yes, she will sing the first stanza of the Star Spangled Banner, just as ALL who’ve gone before has done. But what she will not sing is this!

No refuge could save the hireling and 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 and the home of the brave.

And so what does the above mean? It meant that slaves joined up with the British to fight against their tormentors; their ‘owners’. And isn’t that what white men are called in the NFL? Owners of those mostly ‘Black’ players? Indeed!

The orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:


“Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.

Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.

So when Francis Scott Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.

After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”

Francis Scott Key got his ass kicked by a regiment of Black slave Colonial Marines and he didn’t hardly appreciate that fact and so penned that vile shit and called it, “The Star Spangled Banner” and yet many Black singers have bellowed that vile shit out and they had to have known about this verse as well even if they did not take the time to read up on the history of that disgusting pile of shit of a song. The British refused to turn over what the U.S. government deemed its ‘PROPERTY’! And what the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing because descendants of slaves are still viewed as PROPERTY by this hated and most viciously vile ass government. You stupid, dumb ass Blacks like Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross and yes, even dead ones, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin just to name a few have all sung a song that stands for a nation steeped in the blood of Indians and slaves dragged from Africa. A nation that proudly, to this day, confirms that it still stands for slavery and genocide seeing as how there over 2 million descendants of slaves incarcerated which is more than were original African slaves and the Indians are still segregated on reservations experiencing hunger, illness and abject poverty while the descendants of those who put them there are still waging war on the descendants of slaves and the Indigenous population.

So no, Gladys ‘dumbass’ knight, by your singing that shit, it will NOT bring us ALL together. It will NOT unite us. It will just make you look like the fool you are; massa’s fool and he will laud you for it even as he laughs at your stupidity. But since you’re obviously so played out that you need the gig, go right ahead. Step right up and display your cooning abilities since that is what many Black people are good at, especially those who can stand and say they marched for Civil Rights and against Jim Crow and yet will sing a song that calls for the return of ‘PROPERTY’, meaning slaves you are descended from. Yeah coon, your massas are loving the fact that they can get Black people to do anything! Hand them a few dollars or the ability to sell some of their music thanks to their face at the Super Bowl and they can forget and forgive slavery, Jim Crow, three-fifths, the one-drop rule, discrimination, racism, bigotry, police brutality, gentrification, mass homelessness and income inequality visited on Black people, not to mention the introduction of crack into once vibrant Black communities that left them devastated. Gladys Knight can overlook ALL of that for her 15 minutes upon the stage to sell a few songs on iTunes. You go with your coonhead ass Gladys Knight. Until those of your era die out, we will continue to see coons do fuck all when given an opportunity to speak from the bully pulpit.

No refuge could save the hireling and 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 and the home of the brave.

Sing that verse, why don’t you Gladys Knight and see how fast your mic would get cut the fuck off. But you don’t have the balls to do that, coonhead!

Key got his ass kicked by many a slave,
who valiantly fought, each was so brave.
What Amerikkka wanted was for them in a grave
but they boarded a ship and from a distance did wave.

There! I fixed it for them! Now sing that, you lousy coonhead fucker! Two coonheads who could have used the bully pulpit to shed light on the plight of those who look like them if this government shutdown continues, but instead, one decided to take umbrage over what Trump served some game playing motherfuckers at the White House and the other goes on to defend a racist national anthem. And I have the nerve to wonder why Black America has made no gains. With shit such as this in our corner and white enemies on our asses daily, is it any wonder??!!

The Faux Revolution: Foe to the Black Collective

“As delineated on a previous post, R.Kelly’s media lynching serves to distract black people from the true sexual predator. The black man is not the enemy. But watching the news, this is the projected image. Malcolm X once said, “if you’re not careful, white supremacy will have you loving your enemy and hating the oppressed.” This is exactly what the media aims to do in its portrayal of the R. Kelly scandal. “

There have been multiple white men accused of sexual misconduct and not one of them has been prosecuted and yet, R. Kelly is being touted as some sort of sexual deviant by the white media which has largely ignored the parade of white men who have been accused of sexual assault.

Bill Cosby is languishing in prison and is considered a sexual deviant by the same vile white supremacists who are branding R. Kelly as such. And so this bears repeating:

““if you’re not careful, white supremacy will have you loving your enemy and hating the oppressed.” – Malcolm X.

C.C., great post!

Whispers of a Womanist

“Symbolism is the death of progress.” 

In battle, it is imperative—- not convenient or even strategic—to know your opponent. The contemporary climate obscures the enemy in a masterful attempt to control the masses.

We live in a world where it’s simpler to prove everything that isn’t true and increasingly difficult to justify everything that is. Western culture has tried to present the illusion of progress by twisting the perception of truth.  bc627a50b6b48e71a5b9805ae9ec4577--black-girls-rock-black-girl-magic

Altering the perception of truth, the oppressor appears as ally, and perhaps most violently,  perpetuates the revolution as having already taken place. White supremacists guised as liberals have orchestrated both the race war and the race revolution. This is perhaps best illustrated by Colin Kaepernick. After careful examination, I contend that Kaepernick was hired by the NFL to perpetuate a revolution anticipated and staged by the NFL amidst mounting racial tensions. I believe the NFL staged this…

“It was really tough this morning when I couldn’t go next door to buy a cup of coffee because I didn’t have the money in my account!”

That is the toughest thing about not receiving a paycheck while the government is partially shut down? The inability to go next door to Starbucks to buy a cup of coffee? And some people are actually wondering why the stupid Americans are not out in the streets by the hundreds of thousands demanding an end to the government shutdown. This is why. When not being able to buy a cup of Starbucks coffee is the ultimate insult, how can anyone expect nothing but this from a group of people who are so embarrassingly stupid, it should be against the law?

The average price of a Starbucks drink in the U.S. is $2.75, but New York City is the most expensive location coming in at $3.15 for a tall cappuccino. And if you go for a decadent seasonal beverage with all the bells and whistles, it can run you over$5.00.
“In my freezer, as you can see, I have no meat here,” Belkys Colon, who works for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban and Development, told Inside Edition. “I have pasta but they expired.”
“I’m just sad because maybe I’m gonna get thrown out of my apartment because I haven’t paid my rent,” she said. “I don’t know what to do.”
This woman works for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) and she has no idea what to do since she is about to become evicted and these are the very people who are to see to it that poor, vulnerable people are housed and do not face evictions???!!! The people who are eligible for HUD assistance call such as this when they need advice and so is anyone still not understanding why HUD is absolutely useless? With employees like Belkys Colon working for HUD, I need look no further. Every department of the federal government is absolutely useless!
A lapse in pay could result in agents being late on other bills, which could in turn prevent them from securing or renewing security clearances as a result of the rigorous financial checks that the agency performs regarding its agents on a routine basis.
Even those who work as FBI agents are moaning and whining about how the lack of a paycheck could affect their security clearance. Well, since you know this and you know that there have been other government shutdowns, why aren’t you more prepared? Not one of us ‘regular’ citizens should gnash our teeth over your supposed plight since it is dogs like you who enforce fascist laws against law abiding citizens which led to this:
According to FBI documents, one of the purposes of the COINTELPRO program was to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize the activities of the Black nationalists”. They wanted to prevent the rise of a black “messiah” and Martin Luther King Jr. had been amongst the candidates until his assassination in 1968 when the attention shifted to Huey P. Newton. Of the 295 documented actions taken by COINTELPRO to disrupt Black groups, 233 were directed against the Black Panther Party.

Yeah! Like I’m about to give a shit about your lack of a paycheck because the actions of the FBI led to the imprisonment, torture and assassination of many Black people who were only about the business of trying to lift their people out of poverty and to level the playing field so that Black people would no longer be underneath the boot of Jim Crow, racism, bigotry; the whole nine yards. And now that Trump and congress has thrown you worthless, lousy motherfuckers under the bus, you want to wail and whine about your fucking security clearances? About the fact that you’re now ‘junk’ status? Go fuck yourselves! You are finding that you are just as dispensable as the rest of us and you ain’t fucking liking it none. Well, suck it up and deal! That’s what we’ve had to do thanks to the likes of shits like you at the FBI! I’m fucking laughing at you worthless shits! Lose your goddamn security clearance! What meaning has your security clearance for us? A gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of meaning your security clearance or lack thereof has on me. I am so glad the government is shutdown, you wastes of skin have no idea and I hope the shutdown continues into perpetuity. Take that and shove it up your, hopefully, security clearance-less ass!

Apparently, the only requirement to be a federal worker is to have the ability to take crayon and coloring book and color ‘inside’ the lines. If you can do that, then you’re hired. Fucking babies could do your jobs and with most likely, better results. And it is quite obvious that even those with federal jobs have no sense when it comes to having a rainy day fund. And so is it any wonder that Americans cannot come up with even 6 months of living expenses for when shit hits the fan? They cannot even come up with $500 for even a minor emergency because they’ve got to head to Starbucks everyday for a goddamn cup of coffee that they’re now whining about not having the ability to wrap their stupid hands around. When even FBI agents cannot even keep enough money in the bank or even in one of their funky ass socks to enable them to keep their security clearance because it is not as if this is the first partial government shutdown, then we’ve obviously got some dumb ass federal employees.

I have not one ounce of pity for these fools, not one! And anyone with two eyes and more than two brain cells connected should not have any pity for them because they are too stupid and useless for words. And don’t even get me started on TSA agents. Those fools on average ‘earn’ $30,000 a year and that’s before taxes and so they are basically taking home what amounts to roughly $24,000 and depending on their family size, that would qualify some for food stamps and instead of leaving those airports and seeking a different job, they are working double shifts for no pay.  How incredibly stupid is that? They can ‘earn’ that paltry amount at Walmart. So, we now know how important TSA and FBI agents are. We know how knowledgeable those morons are who work out of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. No wonder the government is absolutely useless.

 

And now, they are trying to shame Americans who don’t work for the government by stating that there is a divide between those who are federal workers and those who aren’t because those who aren’t are going on about their business, unaffected by the partial government shutdown. Why should we give a fuck? Those useless, stupid assholes don’t do shit for us! As far as I’m concerned, the government can just remain shut because what ‘good’ has the FBI done any descendant of slaves? None! What ‘good’ has the Department of Homeland Security done any descendant of slaves? None! And all the Section 8 housing is going to immigrants and so what good has the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development done for descendants of slaves? None. Because if you consider putting us in urban ghettos, doing us a fucking favor, then you’re just as stupid, useless and moronic as federal workers. Sink motherfuckers! Sink! Join the rest of ‘US’ in  this Titanic. It’s about time your asses were brought down to our level. Enjoy!

Count me on the ‘OBLIVIOUS’ side!
The shutdown’s day-to-day impact on Americans — both federal employees and the people who depend on the services they provide — shifts radically from workplace to workplace and neighbor to neighbor. On one side of the divide, the shutdown is inescapable; on the other, it is all but invisible.

Also count me on the ‘invisible’ to it side because why should I care that federal workers, who have excellent benefits and get an exceptional number of paid holidays, are now either working without receiving a check because they have been deemed, ‘essential’ or who are not working because they are not ‘essential’? If you are not ‘essential’, then you’ve no business taking my tax dollars to pay your mortgage/rent, utilities, car notes, insurance, medical and food bills. Why are you even collecting a salary if you are non-essential? What the fuck are you doing every day if you are not necessary to a ‘functioning’ government which at this time, is not functioning at all? And in fact, the entire government is non-essential because seeing as how it’s shutdown, it hasn’t negatively impacted my life, nor that of millions of other Americans.  I can almost see the ‘Libertarian Party’ hosting a party to end all parties since this partial government shutdown because this just feeds into what they have been saying all along in that the fucking United States government is a useless entity that was designed to steal our money and give fuck all in return. Ask Shirley Henderson what the U.S. government is doing for her!

Yeah, this is a bad time to be poor and elderly and living in a HUD funded building.

The government shutdown means that the long-leaking roof of San Jose Manor II Apartments won’t be replaced anytime soon, says Alma Ballard, who oversees the building for low-income senior citizens in Jacksonville, Florida.

“That’s definitely not going to happen,” said Ballard, executive director of the nonprofit Family Housing Management, who said that water has at times dripped into some residents’ rooms.

House Democrats have begun investigating HUD’s management of the shutdown, criticizing the department’s “failure” to salvage the expiring contracts ahead of time and questioning what happened to $400 million in backup funding for the Section 8 rental assistance program.

Shirley Henderson is having a serious roof leak and I haven’t seen one goddamn GoFundMe page set up to assist her and the rest of the seniors who have been impacted by this latest partial government shutdown. And an investigation has commenced to try and locate $400 million that no one seems to be able to locate that should have been used as backup funding. Here is a suggestion. Go look at what fixtures Ben Carson has had added to his HUD office. I hear tell that Carson and wife, Candy, have been spending our money like they just won the lottery.

This is exactly why we have a government; to steal our money and do nothing that benefits the people the money was stolen from. And yet, all I hear are the moans, whines and wails from those who ‘work’ for the federal government about how they can’t pay their credit card bills, the car payment, car insurance, yada, yada, yada. Go ask your bosses who have stolen ALL our money to ‘give over’ and let you have some of their ill gotten gains or better yet, here is a novel concept. Live within YOUR means. I don’t have a car payment because I SAVE up and buy my cars OUTRIGHT! I have managed to purchase, not one, not two, but three vehicles and I don’t owe a penny on either one of them. I don’t have credit cards, not one and somehow, I manage to get by. I also don’t have a gym membership at ‘Fitness Pro’ because…..and wait for it….I purchased my own treadmill (without the use of credit cards) and if the weather is good, I go outside and walk!!! Can you believe it? And it works! And though I don’t drink coffee, if I did, guess what….AGAIN? I would buy a can of cheap ass coffee and ‘perc’ it my damn self because I am a firm believer in non-conformity. I don’t have to be seen with a Starbucks container in my hand. Fuck Starbucks! But apparently, Starbucks is the very breath in your body! Well, fine. Go on into Starbucks and take along with you that worthless piece of paper that was given to you by your bosses explaining about the shutdown. Maybe Starbucks will take pity on you and give you a cup of their cheapest coffee. At least you will still look like you can pay your damn bills!

Damn Nazi Dogs!!!

 

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, poor Black people are still being subjected to studies akin to the Tuskegee Syphilis Study whereas the U.S. Public Health Service conducted an unethical clinical study between 1932 and 1972 on Black males who were injected with syphilis, left untreated which then caused them to pass the disease onto their children. These Nazi dogs over here in Amerikkka wanted to study the impact of syphilis on various parts of the body and so Black males were used as guinea pigs. Their wives were infected and the babies born to their wives were infected as well. 

Now fast forward to today and what has changed?

Group wants Feds to investigate Hennepin County Medical Center’s ketamine research

More than 60 doctors, bioethicists and academics signed onto a federal complaint this week alleging Hennepin Healthcare conducted high-risk ketamine research on more than 100 unwitting participants while ignoring ethical practices and federal safeguards.

Public Citizen, a consumer rights advocacy group, has asked the Food and Drug Administration and the Office for Human Research Protection to conduct investigations into whether the hospital complied with federal regulations during two clinical trials — one completed, the other suspended amid ethical inquiries — involving paramedics sedating people with ketamine before bringing them to the hospital.

Ketamine is a powerful horse tranquilizer. It is also used as a ‘date rape’ drug and this drug has been administered by EMT workers, directed to do so by the Minneapolis Police Department at the behest of Hennepin County Medical Center since the hospital was engaged in a study on the effects of ketamine as a sedative as opposed to the effects of Haloperidol which is an anti-psychotic as well as a sedative.

A board that approves research at Minnesota’s largest safety-net hospital failed to follow federal rules designed to protect patients when it fast-tracked studies on powerful sedatives, including ketamine, according to inspection reports from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Hennepin Healthcare expedited approval for at least four studies between 2014 and 2018 that did not require patients to consent beforehand, even though they included a likelihood of using “vulnerable subjects.”

This designation refers to patients who need special protections because they can’t advocate for themselves and could be easily coerced, such as children, prisoners or people with mental or physical disabilities.

These vulnerable, mostly Black people were injected with ketamine without their consent and against their wishes. The majority of the times this sedative was administered, it was not necessary. In my opinion, it was not necessary at any time. It was done because those who authorized this crime could get away with it because of who the unwitting subjects in this study were. Those who are defenseless, poor and vulnerable. Would any rich whites have been subjected to this? We ALL know the answer to that. But no poor Black people sitting smack dab in the middle of Naziville stands a snowball’s chance in hell of getting anyone to listen to their pleas for help. The same criminal Nazi shit that was going down as early as 1932 and even earlier is still going down today and these Nazi dogs are getting away with their shit!

Amerkkka never tried to murder Nazis because this shithole is Nazi central for why else would they drag the so-called World War II Nazi prisoners-of-war to this cesspool of crimes against Black humans? If any group of people were against the Nazis and wanted them dead, it was the Russians. The Russians are the true heroes in defeating the Nazis while the Amerikkkans look to some stupid show like “Hogan’s Heroes” and assume that a ragtag bunch of stupid American, English and French fuckers actually, with a pretend underground movement, defeated the Nazis. Seriously? An estimated 26 million Soviet citizens died during World War II while Amerikkka lost an estimated 400,000 Nazis. That is insignificant against the loss by the Soviets.

And now these Nazis here in Amerikkka are still at it. Where are the Russians when you need them because we do indeed, need them to defeat these Nazis over here. Take ’em ALL out! And do us a big ass favor, won’t you please! No wonder these Nazis over here would blame the Russians for a tree falling down in the fucking forest!

Ketamine, a powerful sedative, is used in hospitals as an anesthetic, and more recently, to treat depression. And now, city investigators in Minneapolis have found that their police officers directed paramedics to inject the drug into people on the street to subdue them dozens of times over the course of three years, even some people who were already restrained. 

So, let me get this straight, people who were already restrained were injected with ketamine, a horse tranquilizer because…..because….? Yeah! You tell me! Because we’ve got us yet ANOTHER Tuskegee Syphilis Study on our hands, that’s why because that shit never really ceased, it just morphed into different ‘studies’, as in the AIDS study, as in “The Incurable Clap” study and I cannot even imagine all the others that are ongoing. Make no mistake, no monkey is the cause of AIDS. AIDS is a Nazi made disease that was designed to eradicate certain members of the populace and we ALL know who AIDS is targeting. Black people are still dying of AIDS at higher rates compared to all other groups. And as if that weren’t bad enough, Black people are also the victims of a horse tranquilizer study? You fucking filthy ass Nazi dogs, I hope that you get what’s coming to you. I hope it is not too long in coming because Hennepin County Medical Center’s chief medical officer is still maintaining that the hospital “followed all standard research procedures,” even as the FDA contradicts his Nazi ass! And everyone is well aware that the FDA is next to useless and can usually be found in bed with big pharma and the food industry since it never holds them accountable for fucking us up. But even the FDA couldn’t countenance this shit!

The FDA inspectors‘ findings appear to contradict statements from Dr. William Heegaard, Hennepin Healthcare’s chief medical officer, who told Hennepin County commissioners in June that the hospital followed all standard research procedure in its sedation studies.

Just as I stated in a different post, only the Hypocritic Oath  and not the Hippocratic Oath applies when it comes to Black people since there are no ethical standards practiced by these Nazis when it comes to Black people and the medical field.

Black folks, this is why you are still marching and protesting. This is why you are still at square one. This is why there is no reason in the world to celebrate the upcoming Nazi approved holiday ‘celebrating’ no achievements and advancements by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., because these Nazi dogs over here know that he accomplished not a goddamn thing since unethical studies like the Tuskegee Syphilis Study are still being conducted on the same group today. Not a goddamn thing has changed. And while you’re at it, there is no reason in the world to even celebrate Black History Month because the same Nazi dogs that approved Dr. King’s ‘helliday’, approved that as well. And believe me, they are not going to give anything as it pertains to Black people, a stamp of approval unless it’s a setup or is useless and not conducive to your plight. And if you are unsure of this, take your ass to Minneapolis, MN and the Nazi cops there, along with the Nazis working out of Hennepin County Medical Center will clue your ass in, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry! Those Nazi dogs there love cold weather just as those Nazi dogs who crawled over here from Germany did for what group would slither over here, sit themselves smack dab in the middle of a cold nowhere but a group of Nazi dogs who intend to continue to keep Hitler’s insane plan for a ‘master race’ alive and well? Yeah! They’re in the Midwest, also known as ‘Serial Killer’s Paradise’ and Nazi Headquarters.

And the Nazi cops were in on this criminal shit as well! Tell me, when did Nazi cops become experts in the medical field?

Minneapolis Investigates Police Use of Ketamine on Suspects

NPR’s Michel Martin speaks to Star Tribune reporter Andy Mannix about the investigation into the Minneapolis police and EMTs sedating people in custody.

Minnesota cops ordered paramedics to inject suspects with ‘rape drug’ – report

Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been ordered to “never suggest or demand” that paramedics use powerful horse tranquilizers on suspects, following a report that the practice had spiked in recent years.

The new policy order comes after a report by the city’s Office of Police Conduct Review found that paramedics had used ketamine on suspects during police calls 62 times in 2017, up from just three times in 2012. In some cases, emergency personnel injected the tranquilizer into suspects who were already restrained, causing heart and breathing failure and requiring the suspects to be medically revived, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

A family member called the cops for a welfare check on their loved one. The cops show up and promptly call for the EMTs to inject ketamine into the individual which then caused the individual’s heart to stop and the individual had to be revived. Once the person is transported to Hennepin County Medical Center, they are informed that they are in a clinical trial, whether they want to be or not, and are signed up in the ‘ketamine sedative study’ without their consent. They are then held on a 72 hour psych hold and administered who knows how many different types of drugs so that some damn Nazis can witness the effects. How is this any different from what we know happened from 1932 until supposedly 1972? Because I don’t believe a goddamn word coming out of the lying mouths of Nazis and that would include just about everything that’s pasty-faced and slithering around in Amerikkka.  And why isn’t anyone headed to jail over this? Because of what is conducting these studies, that’s why. Nazis, since they control and run this shithole!

There is currently a lawsuit against the Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County Medical Center for this crime. And it doesn’t matter if they “have been ordered to never demand that a horse tranquilizer” be used, those Nazi pigs are ‘The Law’ and so who do they answer to? 

Bill Cosby’s ass is sitting in prison for allegedly drugging a woman in order to have sex with her. So why aren’t those who are responsible for drugging people with a ‘date rape’ drug without their consent and which has been found to have been unethical by the FDA not behind bars since the ‘date rape’ drug used caused their heart to stop beating and also stopped their breathing and they had to be revived? Because those Nazis that write the laws and put them on the books, put them there in order to do such as this against the people the laws apply to, that’s why. When you write the laws, why would they apply to you? They don’t and that is why these criminals are going to get away with drugging people against their will, without their consent, forcibly enrolling them in a study and then subjecting them to deprivations on their person and face not one nanosecond in jail.

Yeah! We’ve come a long fucking way since 1932!
