Your Battlefield Is Your Very Own Body!

war against us

You don’t need a pair of fatigues
or to get shipped out to foreign lands.
Your battlefield is your very own body;
before and after, they cuff your hands.

They blind you with canisters of tear gas,
 turning your tear-filled eyes, a fiery red.
For you cannot protest over one of your own,
just trudge through the cemetery to bury your dead.

There is no dignity on a coroner’s slab,
as they dig the bullets out, one by one.
Organs in a jar, weighed and tallied,
while a jury says, “No harm was done!”

Your mother and your sister shed crocodile tears.
And look to politicians to hear their pleas,
not understanding that this was all planned.
But the shame of slavery, your death will not ease.

The blood of the dead; slaves one and all,
cry out for vengeance as they walk with you.
Your ancestor’s features are carved on your face,
and the ‘white’ man and his fate will rendezvous.

There will be no mercy for the cruel and the heartless.
And when the chains enslave him, the whips lash his back,
as he displayed no mercy for his hapless captives,
slaves freed by death will rise up and attack.

Though he may beg for mercy, calling to his ‘god’,
 the day of reckoning has come at last
and he shall be made to pay for the blood he spilled;
both in present day and for days long passed.

What I have written here, is my most heartfelt wish and hope!

Obama, You Hypocritical Bastard….!

lying bastard

…how the hell can you stand there with a straight face and declare that Venezuela is a national security threat? A national security threat? Venezuela? Are you shitting me? For fucks sake, this shit gets more ludicrous by the goddamn second! The goddamn White House had this to say,

“Venezuelan officials past and present who violate the human rights of Venezuelan citizens and engage in acts of public corruption will not be welcome here, and we now have the tools to block their assets and their use of U.S. financial systems,” the White House said in a statement.”

Venezuela is violating the human rights of THEIR citizens???!!! …AND the Venezuelan government is corrupt? Oh really??!! For real??!! The United States is violating the human rights of its citizens and you, you piece of filthy ass shit ain’t doing a goddamn thing about it or even posturing over the fact that human rights abuses abound in this shithole called America. And what government body could be more corrupt than the shits that take bribes and kickbacks from the ‘corporations are people’ corporations? Here is a list of American state and local politicians convicted of crimes, but this piece of shit is pointing the finger at Venezuela? For the love of ……!!!

And speaking of human rights abuses, my Black ass cannot even stand on a goddamn street in New York city and sell some loose, untaxed cigarettes without getting choked to death! That is not only a human rights abuse, that is motherfucking outright murder! And the fucks that committed that murder, walk around, free as a goddamn bird.

A 12-year old child by the name of Tamir Rice was gunned down in a park by filth in blue for playing with a toy gun and he is to blame for his own death and THAT is not a human rights abuse, not to mention, once again, goddamn out and out murder.

A mentally ill Black woman got her faced bashed in and beaten all about the body in California for having the goddamn gall to walk down the highway and what happened to her is not considered, a human rights abuse?

Let me set the record straight. What are human rights? Human rights are rights which you are entitled by virtue of being human but apparently, many of us who are American citizens are not considered, human and for that matter, neither are many other people that are held in secret U.S. prisons all across this planet, be they American citizens or otherwise.

Also this article states that the U.N. holds U.S. Accountable for Human Rights Violations At Home and Abroad but what I would like to know is, how so? Because in the article:

“The committee condemned the United States’ lack of accountability for disappearance, torture, and unlawful killings of terrorism suspects, and its failure to apply the ICCPR to international operations. In addition, the committee denounced racial disparities in law enforcement that have led to the incarceration of a disproportionate number of minorities (particularly Blacks and Latinos), effectively denying them basic human rights throughout the criminal justice process. This includes severe sentencing such as the death penalty and life without parole for juveniles; improper use of solitary confinement; and denial of civil rights following incarceration (most notably, the right to vote).”

Again, how is the U.N. holding the U.S. accountable for its human rights abuses since not a goddamn thing has changed? The U.S. is busily abusing our human right to privacy at this very minute by recording my motherfucking key strokes and listening in on my phone calls and having the ability, if they don’t like what they see or hear, to have my ass drone struck at any given moment without benefit of counsel or trial. So what the fuck difference did it make for the U.N. to even bother condemning this shithole for human rights abuses when this shithole is GOD to the goddamn world by virtue of its military?

This GOD called America can determine that Venezuela is abusing human rights when this shithole has not one goddamn human rights leg to stand on because they’ve all collapsed in a heap and been shoveled into a goddamn hot ass furnace, burned the fuck up and the ashes as was the case with Osama bin Laden was thrown into the goddamn Ocean, never to be seen or heard from again! Damn it all to hell! The blatant, outrageous hypocrisy of the shits at the helm of this lopsided, sinking, stinking shithole barge, knows no bounds! How the hell do they come off looking askance at another country’s perceived human rights abuses when this shithole is mired in human rights abuses and is damn fucking proud of it? Just ask Dick Cheney who is so fucking proud of the fact that innocent people were tortured to death, so proud to the point that he would do it all again in someone else’s heartbeat! Now if that don’t beat all? Why that heart that he stole from someone that was most likely cooling their heels in a U.S. prison, refuses to beat in his filthy ass chest is a mystery to me! Because if it was my heart that they had given to that depraved, blood thirsty, demonic bastard, it would have leaped up off the goddamn table and fled the goddamn building and thrown itself in front of a motherfucking bus so as not to get set inside that filthy bastard’s nasty ass chest! Meanwhile, Chelsea Manning is rotting in prison for exposing torture, war crimes, lies and hypocrisy, otherwise known as human rights abuses while Edward Snowden is in exile for exposing human rights abuses in the form of the U.S. government spying on us all as if we are all, enemies of the State. If that don’t take the goddamn cake!

The United States reigns supreme in human rights abuses and that is why China has told this shithole to “Fuck off!” when chastising them over their human rights abuses and so have other countries over this ‘pot calling the kettle, black’!

Is the U.N. going to recommend that the U.S. sanction its damn self over its human rights abuses? Fuck no because everybody is goddamn terrified of the U.S. and with good reason, with the exception of Russia’s Vladimir Putin who even condemned this shithole for the human rights abuses perpetrated on the Ferguson protesters when they protested the murder of Michael Brown by a racist ass cop. China had this to say, “It’s ironic that the U.S., with its brutal manner of assimilating minorities, never ceases to accuse China and countries like it of violating the rights of minorities,” and Russia had this to say, “Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement last week that the United States needs to clean its own house if it wants to call itself a “bastion of human rights” that “declares its own ‘exceptionalism.’ ”

“I would like to advise the American leaders to pay more attention to restoring order in their country before imposing its dubious experience on other states,” the Foreign Ministry said.”

But now the shits that run this shithole are pointing the human rights abuse finger at Venezuela and getting out the “SIGH”….sanctions book AGAIN! Who the fuck hasn’t been, is being or will be sanctioned by this hypocritical shithole? Cuba has been sanctioned as has Iran, Iraq, Russia, Burma, North Korea, Côte d’Ivoire and now, Venezuela.

AGAIN, I say, “WORLD!!!” Get your act together! Get up off your ass and blow this shithole to hell! Send your goddamn secret messages by carrier pigeon if you have to in order to elude the goddamn NSA, CIA, FBI and all the rest of the spying eyes over here and carry this thing through to end the reign of this shithole and blow Great Britain’s ass to kingdom come along with it because the two go hand in hand. Cut your losses already and get with the program that this shit is never going to let up off your ass and the hypocrisy is overwhelmingly all up in your face. It is undeniable and they lie and don’t even blink!

WORLD, you’ve got three choices! Expect to kneel and continue to kowtow to this sick ass twisted shit here in America and in Great Britain or get sanctioned to pieces and then have drones and other missiles raining down on your heads or plot together and destroy this shit, once and for all! My continued hope is for the latter! Do yourselves and US, a goddamn favor! Blow it the hell up!!

No One Gives A Damn About His Dream!

the dream

Yes, let us celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day when we don’t give a damn about his dream. His children don’t even give a damn about his dream since they are too busy fighting over his Bible and his Nobel Peace Prize. So when did they ever listen to any one of their father’s speeches? When did they ever take just one to heart? It is quite obvious that they never did and neither do we. Oh we dutifully put his image up for all to see as if we are actually doing something and the truth is, we’re not doing a damn thing about realizing the dream that this man had. And quite frankly, he is not the only one to have a dream. Many, many Black people have been dreaming of a society where they will not be “judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” and is that the case? If you are Black, you will forever be judged by the color of your skin because as far as whites are concerned, you have no ‘content of character’.

Just recently we marched and protested that #BlackLivesMatter and for all I know, some are still protesting, but do Black lives matter? Answer this. How many world leaders came to America and stood front and center in front of a million people to say “#Je suis Black?” How many world leaders went to Nigeria when Boko Haram killed over 2,000 Nigerians and said “#Je suis Nigeria?” Did Netanyahu? Did Angela Merkel? Did Francois Hollande? Of course they didn’t.

“French President Francois Hollande is surrounded by Heads of state including (LtoR) Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Council President Donald Tusk, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Switzerland’s President Simonetta Sommaruga” ‘to protest the murders of Charlie Hebdo employees, employees of a piece of filth rag claimed as a satirical political weekly that produced racist and blasphemous filth. But still, some white folks got killed over their ‘freedom of expression’ and so solidarity was called for’.

To those people, Black and Brown lives don’t matter. White lives do. It doesn’t matter how vile whites are and how much corruption they spread and how greedy they are. Their lives are the only lives that matter. It has always been this way and it will always be this way. These are the ‘people’ that you march and protest to and who you want to correct wrongs. Think about it. Why should they? They don’t care about you. Michael Jackson told you that but you believed all the lies put out on him by the whites. They tore that man’s reputation to shreds because he had a message and through his talent, he spoke. But he got silenced. Whitney Houston had the most beautiful voice that I have ever heard and yet, where is she? Dead and buried and some filthy slut named Beyoncé is strutting around in nothing, sounding like shit. And if it’s not her crooning to her piece of filth pimp, it’s Nicki Minaj doing much of the same. And what are the Black men of today doing besides rapping about bling and hoes or getting their bodies mucked up playing sports? Yes, we are realizing the dream, aren’t we?

Today we commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King’s accomplishments; the success of the Civil Rights Movement when in fact, the movement was not a success. It was an unmitigated failure. What has changed since Martin Luther King marched along with all the others who peacefully gathered to have their grievances heard? Not a goddamn thing. The same issues and problems that Dr. King’s marchers faced, we face today; only our tormenters have upped the ante. We’re now shot with rubber bullets and tear gassed, but we are still jailed. That’s a given and never will it be any different. And why are we still marching? We were marching in the 1960s and here we are in 2015, still marching for the same damn things. What’s the point? Who needs to become aware of what we are marching for? They already know. It’s not going to change, that’s what those of you who are still marching need to know. If you haven’t figured out that since the same shit is stil in play 50 years after the Selma to Montgomery march, then your marching ain’t gonna change a damn thing because since when have Black lives mattered?

The people that you want to change things are not going to change them. They like things just the way they are and that is why the police force has been militarized, that is why Black bodies are lying in morgues all across this shithole called America, that is why inner city schools have become a pipeline to prison for little Black children, that is why slavery in the form of the prison industrial complex is necessary, to house the slaves who ‘slave’ away for corporations, producing goods at a fraction of the cost. And those of us on the outside, head right inside a store and purchase what slaves have made. We are slaving away at stupid jobs to purchase what other slaves have produced. But we will continue to march and we will continue to protest and dream and hope and wish and pray and maybe someday, someday, someday, those who we want to see our marches will realize that this is all so wrong and they will then right the wrongs. Stop lying to yourself and stop dreaming. Dreams are for people who are asleep and don’t want to wake up because reality sucks. It stinks. No one is going to realize your dream for you but you.

The powerful that control all of us are not going to loosen their grip. They are not going to stop being corrupt, greedy, deceitful and instead are going to recognize that they should share in the wealth that they have acquired by the fact of your making it possible by your willingness to work for peanuts, by your willingness to indebt yourselves to them to purchase what slaves are producing, including you. We are all slaves. We are all enclosed in our own little cages. We have the illusion of freedom, some of us, but not many. We pretend that we have rights and freedom and that our lives are lived how we choose. No, it’s not. What you do with your life has been chosen for you. You are doing exactly what the powerful choose for you to do, no more and no less. Step out of line and see how fast you find your ass handed to you. You don’t think that all of this surveillance is for your own good, do you? It is to keep tabs on you. You need a passport to go anywhere. You need an ID to show everybody. You need a number assigned to you. You have a FICO score. Your medical records are digital. That means that every government agency knows where you shop, what you drive, where you go, who you talk to, what your medical conditions are and how much money you make, where you spend it and on what. Does that sound like freedom to you? Are you marching against that? If so, why? What do you hope to accomplish? I’ll tell you what you are going to accomplish by marching. Not a damn thing. You are owned. We all are. This is all an illusion. We are in the matrix, but the matrix that we are in, there is no Oracle and no savior. You’re on your own, just as all the rest of us are. We are here until we’re dead. Accept it.

So, remember Dr. King today. Thank him for all his sacrifices because you are where you are today because of Dr. King and all the others who marched and protested to get you where you are. And where would that be? You’ve just finished college and started a job. Good! Now, pay back that student loan. You are flipping burgers and you are sick and tired of it. Too bad! What else are you going to do? You are filing endless forms in an office and thinking about a vacation you’ll probably never get to take because you’ve got mouths to feed. I’m sorry. Keep dreaming. Dream on, fellow matrix dwellers, dream on!

Oh and Je suis Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.! Je suis Charlie got pretend solidarity from the world’s leaders in France, but damn it if they even bothered to pretend solidarity with the murdered Nigerians or the murdered young Black men in America, murdered by racist ass cops, or the drone-struck and bombed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Ukraine, Gaza ……” Never forget, it’s white bodies that matter and Dr. King’s dream will never be realized because Dr. King could not say “Je suis white!”

Yes, The Pentagon Is Injected Into This! They Supplied The Military Equipment!

police

“US rethinks giving excess military gear to police

After a decade of sending military equipment to civilian police departments across the country, federal officials are reconsidering the idea in light of the violence in Ferguson, Missouri.”

After a decade? Why the fuck now? It couldn’t of course be because the world is watching what is going down in Ferguson, MO and how the hypocritical whore called, America ain’t about shit since it can no longer scream and yell about bringing freedom and democracy to the world when its own citizens who were peacefully protesting faced down cops using military equipment that was sent back from Iraq and Afghanistan and now is on the streets of Ferguson, MO and anywhere else they want to use it. And the police are lying their goddamn fucking heads off over who is initiating the violence in Ferguson. That militarized shit is behind the violence and is trying to hide what they’re doing by telling lies about how violent the protesters are. If anybody thinks that the fucking governor Jay Nixon wouldn’t lie, ask yourself this! When has a politician ever opened his/her mouth and told the goddamn truth? I rest my fucking case!

“The public has absorbed images of heavily armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes. Against that backdrop, Attorney General Eric Holder said that when police and citizens need to restore calm, “I am deeply concerned that the deployment of military equipment and vehicles sends a conflicting message.”

You’re goddamn right ‘the public has absorbed images of heavily armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes’ and have come to the conclusion that certain people in this shithole are just about as free as animals in a zoo. But of course, that is what Black people are likened to in this shithole, animals, and that is why the cops have no problem donning military gear, driving military vehicles and using tear gas on peaceful protesters. Who would have thought that there would be a hue and a cry raised from countries all over the world about how America is treating her own citizens? What people don’t seem to realize is that Black people have never been considered, real citizens. From slavery, we were counted as three-fifths of a person. We were ‘human’ enough to be used to build this country. We were ‘human’ enough to be raped, sodomized and brutalized and bear the foul ass seed of the whites, but still, we were somehow missing that supreme element that makes us completely human. And whatever it is, I don’t fucking want it because if it makes me like the whites, it can’t be good. It’s some vile and nasty shit and furthermore, we don’t fucking need it since it’s all like that!

“What we’re seeing in Ferguson is a reflection of the militarization of American policing,” said Kara Dansky, senior counsel with the ACLU’s Center for Justice. “They’re trained to think of what they do as going into battle.”

Asked about the program at a Defense Department news briefing on Thursday, a spokesman said the program had proven useful because it allows U.S. law enforcement to reuse military equipment that would otherwise go to waste.
“That said, it is up to law enforcement agencies to speak to how and what they gain through this system. And I’m not going to inject the Pentagon into this discussion,” Rear Admiral John Kirby said.”

Just what the hell did they think was going to happen when they decided to give military equipment to the police? Fuck your ‘Rear’ amoral John Kirby, the Pentagon injected the Pentagon into the discussion when it issued local police departments, military equipment. Don’t try to step away from that shit that the Pentagon injected. Don’t now back the fuck up because that foul ass shit has hit the airwaves all across this planet about how fucked up this shithole is. The Pentagon knew exactly what would happen with a militarized police force all across America. This was fucking done by design and so don’t now sit back and attempt to absolve the Pentagon of any complicity in what the Pentagon initiated in the first place.

Now that the shit has hit the fan, no one wants to take responsibility for the shit that was unleashed on American soil. The war machine was fucking gonna find some way to use that goddamn military equipment even if was to be used on American soil and kill those that the fucking white supremacists have always had a goddamn problem with but don’t let it get out in the open see?, ’cause we’ve got a reputation to uphold. No, WE don’t! America ain’t got a reputation to uphold! America’s reputation is in shreds and is worthless. America is a nasty ass diseased whore for which there is no known cure except for complete annihilation. This bitch needs to die because this bitch never gets tired of war! So, die already whore!

A Message From Me to the World: We Are Trying…

The U.S. using chemical weapons in Iraq.
The U.S. using chemical weapons in Iraq.

to stop the insane Obama Administration’s new mission to bomb Syria. With blog after blog, post after post, protest after protest, calls to our ‘representatives'(and I use that word loosely), refuting the propaganda that is being shoved down the throats of Americans and people the world over to try and ‘justify’ bombing the hell out of Syria.

There is NO justification! Syria has NOT declared war on the U.S. Our moral obligation is not to bomb Syria to save Syria from itself. Our moral obligation is to collaborate with the U.N. along with the international community to come up with diplomatic solutions. We are not humanitarians if we bomb Syria. We are warmongers.

The U.S. government has used the argument that the use of chemical weapons is not to be tolerated. Well, if that is the case, then the U.S. government needs to commence judicial hearings and try itself for war crimes against humanity and for lying and cover-ups in the use of chemical weapons by the U.S. government not only on its own citizens but also for the use of chemical weapons in Vietnam, and also in Iraq. We need new government anyway. One that is FOR the People, BY the people and OF the people. The one we have isn’t cutting it. Need more proof?

1. The U.S. Military Dumped 20 Million Gallons of Chemicals on Vietnam from 1962 – 1971

2. Israel Attacked Palestinian Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2008 – 2009

3. Washington Attacked Iraqi Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2004

4. The CIA Helped Saddam Hussein Massacre Iranians and Kurds with Chemical Weapons in 1988

5. The Army Tested Chemicals on Residents of Poor, Black St. Louis Neighborhoods in The 1950s

6. Police Fired Tear Gas at Occupy Protesters in 2011

7. The FBI Attacked Men, Women, and Children With Tear Gas in Waco in 1993

8. The U.S. Military Littered Iraq with Toxic Depleted Uranium in 2003

9. The U.S. Military Killed Hundreds of Thousands of Japanese Civilians with Napalm from 1944 – 1945

10. The U.S. Government Dropped Nuclear Bombs on Two Japanese Cities in 1945

So after reading from the above list, do you really believe that the U.S. is going to bomb the hell out of Syria because of chemical weapons? We don’t give a damn about anyone using chemical weapons. If we did, we wouldn’t use them!!!! But we do, so how then can we turn around and bomb another country for doing exactly what we are doing, have done and will continue to do? Why is the U.S. government’s use of chemical weapons, acceptable, but if another country uses them, we become all mushy and outraged and so then we’ve got to galvanize the world to stop this atrocity when in fact, if chemical weapons were used in Syria, we most likely provided them? There is not one single reason for the U.S. military to be engaged in war on Syria. Not one. To simply say that Assad is bad is not enough. Barack Obama is bad, but no one is overthrowing him by way of military action. Our entire congress is bad, but no one is going to bomb the hell out of them. Obama is intent on striking Syria because that is what his handlers have told him to do. He is bought and paid for. He owes them his place in the White House and in history. His oratory skills will not be enough to convince those of us who know that it is not in America’s best interest to bomb Syria, nor is it in the best interest of the Syrian people. He knows it. John Kerry knows it and our congressional representatives know it. And through our blogs, our tweets, our Facebook pages, our protests; the whole world knows it. Will our representatives vote to strike Syria? Highly likely. Will the U.S. people merely sit back and watch this unfold and turn into another Iraq/Afghanistan? We’ll soon see.
