When Proportionate Legitimate Defense Become Genocidal Disproportionality

The latest news stated that “Israeli ground forces joined attack on Gaza on Friday, representing a major escalation of the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants as they edged toward all-out war.” Let’s be clear, people, this is not a war; it’s a massacre. Israel has the most sophisticated weapon systems in existence. Israel also controls the airspace and the territorial waters of the Gaza Strip. This situation limits Palestinian’s rights to freedom of movement and impairs Gaza’s ability to carry out foreign trade.

Israeli ground forces attacks on Gaza is very similar to the slow-motion murder of George Floyd in front of the eyes of global humanity. The world community must stand up and speak out against this pending slaughter of human beings. Mainstream media must not try to indicate that there is some level of equivalency here! Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing criminal charges, appears to use the airstrikes and ground forces against Gaza to save his political career and stave off his corruption allegations.

“According to the health ministry in Gaza, 103 people were killed, including 27 children and 11 women, while 580 people were wounded.” “In Israel, there have been six Israelis killed, including a six-year-old child.” Just like the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol Building in Washington DC, It appears that what we are witnessing in Israel/Gaza conflict is a total collapse of the rule of law.

Israel, like any nation, has the right to defend itself; however, when does a nation’s or an individual’s action cross over from proportionate legitimate defense to genocidal disproportionality? Its’ time for leaders from around the WORLD to say full-throatily that enough is enough. If world leaders don’t do anything, they become complicit in this rapidly developing genocide.

Senators, Please, It’s Not About You

I have a message for Senator Jon Tester of Montana, Senator, Kyrsten Sinema, of Arizona, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. It’s not about YOU; It’s “For the People.” I know that you are aware of the games the Republicans played during former President Obama’s Administration. Former President Obama made a concerted effort to work in a bipartisan manner. Republicans pretended to want to work with him; however, in the end, they voted against him at every turn.

I ask that you all don’t turn your back on the American people. History is in the making, and “we the people” need you to be on the right side of history. Your future collective votes will either save this democracy or hand it over to the demons.

If either of you is waiting for the Republicans to be bipartisan, please listen to statements made by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “McConnell said the bill would not get a single Senate GOP vote, despite the White House’s bipartisan outreach”.

 If you need any clarification regarding Republicans’ support, McConnell has given you the answer. You were elected to serve the needs of the American people. As I stated earlier, its’ not about you. Now is your time to be “For The People.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told you all you need to know. Democratic Senators Jon Tester, Kyrsten Sinema, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, its’ time to VOTE yes on:

H.R.7120 [116th]George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020
3.H.R.1 [117th]For the People Act of 2021
4.S.914 [117th]Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act of 2021

6.H.R.5 [117th]Equality Act
7.S.937 [117th]COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act
8.H.R.6 [117th]American Dream and Promise Act of 2021

Some In America Seeks To Silence Dissent

Racism Is An Expanding Global Sickness That’s Spreading around the World, like the viciousness of the Coronavirus. We often think we control national and global racism and its wicked and devious ways; however, it resurfaces with a vindictive vengeance again and again. Moral people must collectively cut the head off this race-based snake called racism.

Republican legislators, in several states, like the race-based snake, are passing laws designed to protect drivers who Hit protesters. Over the last year, anti-racism protestors and demonstrators have had to defend themselves from vehicular assault from police and many times from white racists without moral authority nor supremacy.

These so-called bombastic laws grant civil immunity to drivers who ram their vehicles into anti-racism protesters, sometimes injuring or killing them. The only justification these drivers need is to claim that the protests made them concerned “for their own well-being at the moment.” Republican legislators designed these criminally intent laws to end legitimate national protest movements and to silence dissent.

These new states’ laws make one think of the Virginia “Casual killing Act of 1669.” It also give civil immunity to whites only when they felt like killing a person of color. They are a form of Stand Your Grounds by Car. These laws are very dangerous and patently inhumane. Is this the kind of America we dream of?

What we have here is another “American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) designed legislation.

The American Legislative Exchange Council


America, do you know the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEX)? They are at it again, and if you don’t know who they are, you will after you read this article. ALEC is a non-profit 501(c) political organization founded in 1973. It is funded by several of the nations’ most influential corporations that you, we do business with and buy products from every day. ALEC and Friends’ overarching goals are to use Diabolical Creepy Moves to bring down our Democratic way of life as we know it.

The following corporations are just some of the funders behind ALEC: American Bail Coalition, American Water, Altria Group, AT&T, Diageo, Energy Future Holdings, ExxonMobil Corporation, Koch Companies, NetChoice, Peabody Energy, Pfizer Inc., PhRMA, State Budget Solutions, State Farm Insurance Co., United Parcel Service (UPS) and many others.

ALEC is very busy writing GOP voter suppression bills while spending millions to pass them. Working with other Right-wing conservative groups, ALEX has aggressively manufactured over 250 modeled voter suppression restrictions bills that will negatively affect millions of voters. They are well known as the nation’s best-known fill-in-the-blank model bill factory for a wide array of Republicans conservative causes.

Fact: Corporations use ALEC, a tax-exempted organization, to formulate, present and promote model legislation for mostly elected officials on the state level who are ALEC members, and hold leadership roles in the organization. Legislators across the nation introduce similar or identical bills designed to boost corporate power and profits, reduce worker’s rights, limit corporate accountability, or restricted voting rights. The very Legislation that you thought was written and pass into law was probably written for your state lawmaker by corporate lobbyists working through the American Legislative Exchange Council.

ALEC has produced model bills on a broad range of issues, such as reducing regulation and corporate taxation, combating immigration, loosening environmental restrictions, tightening voter identification rules, weakening labor unions, and opposing gun control. The expansion of concealed carry laws — and the push for unrestricted access to assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. ALEC is a one-stop-shop for corporations looking to identify friendly state legislators to work to get special-interest legislation introduced.

ALEC-modeled Legislation ensures that our governments’ tax dollars collected from the middle and low-income people will benefit the wealthiest 1%. It’s a win-win for corporations, their lobbyists, and right-wing legislators. But the big losers are citizens whose rights and best interests are sold off by elected officials to the highest bidder.

Knowing what you now know, should you/we support any corporation or Individuals that Support ALEC? ALEC’s significant funders include, but are not limited to the following: Exxon Mobil, the Scaife family (Allegheny Foundation and the Scaife Family Foundation), the Coors family (Castle Rock Foundation), Charles Koch (Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation and the Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation), the Bradley family (The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation) and the Olin family (John M. Olin Foundation). These organizations consistently finance right-wing think tanks and political groups.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) describes itself as the largest membership association of state legislators; however, over 98% of its revenue comes from corporations and corporate foundations. ALEC is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more potent than that.

ALEC provides state legislators with wish lists of model legislation that benefit corporations and wealthy individuals’ bottom line. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER and knowledge of ALEC will help Americans identify ALEC-controlled/corrupted politicians IN THEIR STATE and work to remove them from office. Most importantly, Americans must understand that ALEC’s agenda extends into almost all areas and levels of legislation/law.

ALEC and their GOP puppets are attempting to pass voter suppression laws in 43 states. Greed is at the center of their efforts to undermine environmental regulations, deny climate change; support school privatization; undercut health care reform; defund unions and limit their political influence; restrain legislatures’ abilities to raise revenue through taxes; mandate strict election laws that disenfranchise voters; increase incarceration to benefit the private prison industry, and so much more. In Georgia, the Republicans’ dastardly deeds committed in secrecy have now come to light. Now we know exactly millions of Americans lives are being negatively affected by ALEC-controlled Republican funded Private Corporate Interests.  

Acting Against Your Own Interest

Domestic terrorists and right-wing racist thugs showed their love for Trump by violently attacking the Capitol building on January 6, 2021 to stop President Joe Biden’s presidency from being certified. Now hundreds of them have been charged, some with very grave crimes. Yes, in their efforts to please Trump, they acted against their “own” interest and their families’ interests. Many of these Domestic terrorists and Trump enthusiasts will receive serious jail and prison time.

The FBI, with evidence in hand, is in pursuit of many of these Trump lovers. They are now criminals, fugitives running and hiding from law enforcement officers. Rioters were bamboozled and fell in love with the “Big Lie” that President Biden and the Democrats rigged the 2020 presidential election and had committed voter fraud.

Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Rudy Giuliani, fed rioters misinformation about stolen elections and directed them to inflict mayhem on the Heart of U.S. Democracy filled with elected officials. How was it that no one in these right-wing domestic terrorists’ spaces was not wise enough or emotionally intelligent enough to save them from themselves?

Hence, they were convinced, by people lurking in the shadows, to attack their government. I can’t imagine what they and their families are feeling at this very moment. For sure, because of Trump, many of those who violated the Capitol building have become criminals. Like other criminals, they will lose their freedom, their right to carry their guns, and, more importantly, lose their very right to vote.

Every person in the United States and worldwide must learn from this horrendous lack of judgment by the Capital’s rioters. They went to the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, with comfortable lives and supreme privileges. Many had/have well-paying jobs, kids in college, home owners, parents, and even grandparents. Now, because of the crimes they committed, they are facing an uncertain undesirable future.

In closing, the Capital attack that America and the world witnessed happened within a diabolical mad-man mind. We must all learn from this failure of far-sightedness, and we must excise a higher level of Emotional Intelligence. We must slow down and weigh the penalties related to our perceived and sometimes deceived actions. Remember, if you decide to proceed with your choices and causation, you will have to live with your consequences!

We Demand Reparations & 100% Equity

We, the African-American Black Man and Black Woman are the people with the lived, painful experiences expressed on the pages of most major and minor news media every day, and yes, it hurts. The lived experiences that have been dropped done on our souls were not of our choosing.

Collectively, Black People continue to live in an America rapped with the ropes of what the honorable Dr. Joy Degruy refer to as ” Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome,” ( and again, it hurts.

To understand just a piece of Black People’s pain, please listen to Coach Doc Rivers’ statement, “we love America but America doesn’t love us back.” (

When Black People want to give themselves uplifting, we often say, “We are still here (not murdered), or We are still standing, (able to stand on our own two feet;”) however, we are no longer willing for the bar to be set that low. It is 2021, and if not now, when will Black people be respected for 100% of our Womanhood and Manhood? 100% equity. Now is that time. Thank You. More To Come

Message for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly

I have a message for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona. We understand that you all may face substantial challenges in your re-election bid in 2022; however, significant funding for reopening schools, necessary aid to save small businesses, and the 1,400 relief checks for families devastated by the pandemic must come first.

What you need to know is, we expect you to stand firm with President Job Biden to provide the American people with the recovery funds required for survival during these multiple pandemics facing this nation. If you support the people, the people will support you.

Bipartisan action is a good goal; however, we must look at the recent U.S. political history to guide us as the nation moves forward with the new Congress. The American people are facing crises of immense proportions. We have to work with those who are ready to address these unrelenting issues right now. I agree with the Republican Senators that ensuring that the stimulus checks go to those most in need is a good compromise.

When President Biden was a Senator, he was known as a deal maker. He could bring Democrats and Republicans to unanimity on many important matters facing the country. Today, America is experiencing a partisan divide that is most intransigent in modern history. Moreover, they know that America is experiencing an unprecedented set of crises.

The COVID-19, aka the Coronavirus, continues to pose a mammoth threat to the country. Additionally, the economic conditions are merciless for far too many Americans; consequently, the need for action is pressing, and the extent of the demand is monumental.

I solute the 10 GOP Senators and believe that they are sincere in reaching out to President Biden for a bi-partisan vote; however, what they are offering is much too little and too late. Furthermore, where is the Republican leadership with efforts? Fool Us Once.

Senator Joe Manchin, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly, we have the 51-vote majority in the Senate that would allow President Biden’s bill to pass. We need you to strengthen your resolve and step up and enable the relief package to pass through budget reconciliation if necessary. Americans don’t need to wonder where you are on the urgent relief package.

Demoncrats, let’s go, let’s unite, and let’s vote to move President Biden’s Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic rescue package through the House and Senate on to the American people.

Biden’s economic rescue package includes Enhanced unemployment aid, Rental assistance/eviction moratorium: Help for the hungry: More money for child care and child tax credits: A temporarily increase of tax credits: Subsidies for health insurance premiums: Restoration of emergency paid leave: More assistance for small businesses: Aid for states and schools: Increased support for vaccines and testing: and A $15 hourly minimum wage.

America Says, Nobody Is Above the Law

People of African Consent in the United States of America are watching the political and judicial leaders in this country to ensure that they also concur that “Nobody Is Above the Law.” After reviewing the historical relationship between People of African Consent and the American criminal justice system, we want to ensure this nation punishes those who attacked America’s democratic process on January 6, 2021, with criminal punishment proportionate to their crimes. People were injured, people died, and now, people are crying out for justice.

The rioting rabbit mob forced lawmakers, staffers, and journalists to hide in secure locations as the mob ransacked offices, assaulted Capitol Police officers, and stole property. They also embarrassed this nation and brought the concept of American exceptionalism down to its’ lowest level in decades.

White racists in America have often lived in spaces above the law while functioning on white privilege principles. Their belief in white privilege caused them to think that they could destroy the Capitol Building, the seat of our democracy, and go home and have a beer.

The violent armed white mob who breached the Capitol Building committed grave crimes; therefore, we must prosecute all offenders to the full extent of the law. According to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security report, white racist “present the gravest terror threat to the United States.” If the mob who breached the Capitol Building are not charged and given jail time comparable to their crimes, law enforcement will further put all Americans of color’s and others’ lives at risk.

The rioters woke up on January 7, knowing that “it’s different this time.” On May 25, 2020, 8 Americans and members of the world community witnessed the 8 minutes and 46 seconds slow-motion murder of George Floyd. On January 6, 2021, we saw thuggish white racist insurrectionists’ murderous crimes at the Capitol Building. Now, the Capitol’s horrific desecrations are seared in our collective minds forever.

Law enforcement officers and the criminal justice system must understand that; we are watching how you police the Capitol Hill racist white mob. Thus far, we don’t like what we see. We see white racists insurrectionists treated by law-enforcement like one would treat your little brother or sister that threw a rock and broke your mother’s glass framed door! No Capitol rioters can be allowed to go free! Individuals that are indicted and convicted of felony charges must be STRIPPED of their VOTING RIGHTS until they complete their full sentencing.

The Capitol Building was locked down for three and a half hours before officials declared the building was secure. Police officials and federal prosecutors implied that about 140 officers were injured. “All government officers of the United States, including the President, the Justices of the Supreme Court, state judges and legislators, and all members of Congress, pledge first and foremost to uphold the Constitution.” We must demand every elected official to re-pledge their allegiance. Americans must never forget that murder took place inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021.

President Biden tweeted that, “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protestors that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol that lead to the deaths of five people.” America the Beautiful can also be America the repugnant, depends on the color of your skin or the county from which you came.

Following the debasement of the Capitol Building, some politicians are disingenuously asking for healing. If they genuinely want HEALING, first, they must show some integrity and assistance in obtaining ACCOUNTABILITY.

Health, Prosperity, and a Sense of Constitutional Normalcy.

On January 5, 2021, Georgians must demonstrate a high degree of Emotional Intelligent Voting. Why, It’s Different This Time. America has a group of mutineers who either don’t want to or can’t recognize the truth from a lie. Their Oath of Office and their patriotism to the United States of America is deeply in question.

A magnitude of Republican elected officials have expressed a level of dishonesty, knowingly or unknowingly, that is an essential threat to the U.S. democracy. The question is, where do we go from here? Momentous damages to our democracy occur every day without remorse or consideration for FACTS from the GOP perpetrators.

With REAL Americans, patriotism comes before one’s political party; therefore, Georgians must elect Democrat Raphael Warnock and Democrat Jon Ossoff to the U.S. Senate on January 5. 2021. By electing these two democrats to the U.S. Senate, we will give President elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris a fighting chance to save our healthcare, educational institutions, and economy, our jobs, our livelihood, and our nation!

Today, as we close out the Trump administration, Billionaires are eating our economy as millions of Americans eat from the free food lines for the first time. Americans want political leaders that uphold the U.S. Constitution and upholds the ideals of freedom, justice, and equality for all.

Though most Republican politicians would dare not to follow Pres Trump’s demands, we have Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger of Illinois who has chosen to “speak up and lead without concern for the consequences and lead without fear.” Others must stand and work with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Senators Warnock, and Senator Ossoff to put our nation on the road to health, prosperity, and a sense of Constitutional Normalcy.

American Will Not Allow The 2020 Presidential Elections To Be “Willie Lynched “Again

American Will Not Allow The 2020 Presidential Elections To Be “Willie Lynched “Again

It is a widely accepted fact that Russia “Willie Lynched” the 2016 U.S. Presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. It is also a fact that Russia used its’ Internet Research Agency influence operations to disenfranchise African-Americans/Black voters specifically.

As “Willie Lynch said during a speech to white slave owners on the James River bank in 1712, you must pitch the OLD BLACK MALE vs. the YOUNG BLACK MALE and the YOUNG BLACK MALE against the OLD BLACK MALE. You must use the Dark Skin Slaves vs. the Light Skin Slaves and the Light Skin Slaves vs. the Dark Skin Slaves. You must use the Female vs. the Male, and the Male vs. the Female.”

Using “Willie Lynch’s modus operandi, Russia aims to manipulate and inoculate Black people against voting using racial hatred, fear, suspicion, and envy. As we all know, life is the perception or deception of reality; therefore, Russia uses its’ disinformation and social control campaigns to manipulate the American people. Their strategy of turning Americans against each other by exploiting their differences.

Russia has also continued to scrutinize the U.S hyperpolarized racial divide. Their goal is to legitimize African-Americans’ racial grievances to exploit the Black vote. Russia’s hidden hand is involved in the protest movement across America.

Know with information sources. Again, Russians are using fake Facebook, Twitter, and Google ads to sustained their cyberattacks to deceive the American voters generally and Black Americans specifically. Fact, during the 2016 election, a total of 251 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives were identified, including at least 37 meetings”.

For years, the digital infrastructure that serves the United States has been literally under both internal and external attacks. However, the Trump Administration has shown little curiosity regarding expanding our cybersecurity and has provided minimum efforts to protect it.

Let’s be clear; Russian’s strategy is to disenfranchise Black and brown people of their rights to vote; more importantly, they aim to undermine the U.S.’s democracy! To protect our democracy moving forward, The United States of America must address the stench of systemic racism head-on.

Voting for our next president is Different This Time; therefore, Americans must encourage all family members and friends to be “Emotional Intelligent Voters.”

We must elect a president with empathy and self-respect. We need Real Political leaders that can put themselves in their VOTERS’ shoes, thus promoting more thoughtful and deliberate decisions. We must vote for the candidate who will provide us and those we love with a positive way forward and use the bountiful wealth of this nation to improve lives and remove our pain. We need a president who has the will and fortitude to smash the national and global COVIS-19 pandemic; moreover, we need a president to bring back a sense of normality.
