Black Lives Matter Co-Founder: Trump Wants to Return to the ‘Dark History of This Country’ [Trump VS Real Men]

Finally, people are speaking the truth many of us who aren’t asleep knew from the moment that psycho decided he should be any form of government official. We are citizens of America right? Answer me this, then. As “Americans” is it not too much to do exactly what they say we are to do if this ever happens; this being a racist, sexist, fat, orange psychopathic tyrant.

I am ashamed to say I am American, I’ve been since I was 14 and saw how cops have a badge to kill innocent people; especially if those people are not white, and then walk away from the crime with the same bloody guns in their slimy, blood stained hands. If you’re not American and reading this, please know this government does NOT represent ALL of the people! I must post this because I’ve got a busy schedule however I also have announcements to share that will be propelling this site and new sites as well as upcoming events and talks, among other things. I have been away for far too long but it was worth it… My seeking, studying, and continuously searching the vast REAL knowledge most Americans are never taught and too many do not even want to hear and growing my spiritual connection by the blessings of our Afrikan Ancestors;…all of this has made me stronger in all regards and my purpose -though it was already known- will now be fulfilled. And that means my changing in ways that only hurt my purposes; one being, sharing knowledge.

More on that really soon. For now, here is what we all need to be using the government of America’s founding documents to rid ourselves from the police state and truancy of Trump. It DOES matter. We are going backwards; say what you will of President Obama, but he never tried  to reverse American progress, well being or health care. He was harassed with hate and racism as his precious little princesses did/do. But President Obama, being a man with integrity and maturity  -not to mention stable mind- didn’t go off the handle, even though he would have had more legit reason to be angry at the media and others for he had horrible comments and lies being spoken.

He let his actions speak. No one has to agree with the sickness of Syria and other countries; but as a whole… you can simply look at Obama in the eyes and then look into the eyes of Donald Trump…And the person whom is a man of value and an actual man. 

While I’ll leave out -for now- what words I’d use to explain what Donald Trump is, I’ll start an upcoming posts topic by adding;

“…the person whom is a man of value and an actual man. Most people will know that I mean, of course, the missed President, Barack Obama. Trump is honestly a sorry and pathetic excuse and misrepresentation of what it means to be a “man.” He also is a horrific and a vile, disgusting, delirious joke of humans as a whole.

Trump has had his ‘power’ if you wanna call it that; but now it’s a position within the government… To support him is to support those he also has -or tries to have- in office… All whom are women haters, racist whites with lazy European ancestors who did not build Amerikkka, but sat and got fat while treating men, women and children of legal enslavement, abuses spoken and unspoken, violence and fear unknown…

Trump with Sessions and Pence alone are walking images of the overseers, of the legal/government officials that were hunting down, murdering, abusing, misusing, brain washing, stealing and raping Black human beings. Not forgetting, these Black men AND women are why we have the most iconic sites in America; not just Washington DC; not just the white house, but ALL OVER America. And they did it to stay alive.

How things are regarding cops, prison, school, jobs, community, life or death for being alive; life or death being a risk if you dare do something as simple as go for a walk to get skittles or if you have a Pokemon card in your 12 year old hand. (Former case)

More writing with citations soon. Take action; and if you have any action that needs a volunteer; please let me know.

 

“It will be us who makes America great again.”

Immigration Bans… Making America Whiter; Trump Attacks

By the way, thanks goes to all of the many cities/towns that are standing up against these evil and cruel immigration bans and etc. with any form of resistance. 
Of course, Trump is not taking resistance kindly; I’m surprised he hasn’t done something already. I honestly do not understand why Trump is still in office but that’s an article for another time. 
Below is an article on what Trump is doing to try and punish any area where moral is shown by behaving-in this instance, on this topic– humane and moral. Finally.

I must note here, I understand none of the states are perfect. For example, the state of Cali alone is guilty of immoral behavior regarding police brutality, racism, “three strikes you’re out” law, capital punishment, prison, etc. And no, other states aren’t much better in those areas. But anyone helping the people Trump is hunting deserves at least some positive attention for their attempts. 

On the contrary we have Texas. Instead of showing humane resistance of protection; Texas has many counties petitioning to have more immigration officials come down and shatter homes and rip families apart by labeling them illegal. Absolutely disgusting. Not the Texas really known for being progressive


 

Taking a country back to its origins and claiming them great. That is what Trump claims he is doing?… Sure that is what he’s trying to do. And if your white American you’re probably unaware of what that means. So let’s think about it really fast.

America; the great country or, used to be great… 

It was great during slavery, when taking it from the natives, maintaining that women are inferior, having the white audacity to deny true history, create false history in its place, deem oneself superior to others, Etc… Sure. That’s what we all want to go back to.

Wrong. Wrong if you’re not a racist, white male. Wrong if you’re not completely brainwashed.  

The little progress of this country has made he is reversing. Make America great again is to make America white again. And it is sadly clear that there are too many who- for some reason- think this is a good thing….??? Either that or they’re too brainwashed to understand and see this for what it really is…which is really tragic & disgrace to anyone who has any form of moral, a heart or even the most basic of standards.
If you really want to make America great again you’ll be fighting against the corruption that Trump is putting in place or attempting to put in place. So, I have  gratitude for the small things that any one may be doing as they stand up against the cruelty of Trump and his sort. 

***article begins***

The U.S. Department of Justice threatened on Friday to cut some funding to California as well as eight cities and counties across the United States, escalating a Trump administration crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
President Donald Trump has vowed to strip federal funds from dozens of state and local governments that do not fully cooperate with U.S. immigration agents, arguing they endanger public safety when they decline to hand over for deportation illegal immigrants who are arrested for crimes. 

“Sanctuary cities” in general offer safe harbor to illegal immigrants and often do not use municipal funds or resources to advance the enforcement of federal immigration laws. 

Many of these localities say they do not have the funding or space to hold immigrants until federal agents can take custody of them.  

Those threatened were: the state of California; New York City; Chicago; Philadelphia; Clark County, Nevada; New Orleans; Miami-Dade County, Florida; and Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Cook County, Illinois, also received a warning, even though it did not get money from the Justice Department last year.

The jurisdictions have until June 30 to provide evidence to the federal government that they are not violating any laws…

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: Legal Resource for “Illegal” Immigrants & Facts on “Illegal” Immigration

As we watch America too quickly descending backwards in both progress and 5c3784d0a0e4e44a463c9aa51af4f684morality under the tyranny of Trump/Pence, we must never forget the turmoil of those being thrown out of America. Too many Hispanic people live in fear night and day of being harassed, arrested or deported, and too many people -based on those I personally know- are aware of the legal rights they have,  “illegal” or not. Thus, I am posting a link for all people facing threat of arrest, detainment or deportation under the new, sickening tyrant rule of Trump/Pence.

The following link(s), which directs you to a section of the National Immigration Law Center, is a PDF file giving the rights each individual holds when it comes to questioning, detainment or deportation. It also refers people to a link where you can ensure loved ones know your location, stating:

  • Make sure your loved ones know how to find you if you are detained by ICE. They can use ICE’s online detainee locator (https://locator.ice.gov/odls/homePage.do) to find an adult who is in immigration custody. Or they can call the local ICE office (https://www.ice.gov/contact/ero). Make sure they have your alien registration number written down, if you have one.

Additionally, because one of these rights is the right to not speak, there is a card to print out and carry with you in the event an officer attempts to question or arrest you. Some of which has been copied and pasted below:

Hand this card to the officer, and remain silent.

The card explains that you are exercising your right to refuse to answer any questions until you have talked with a lawyer.

Please be informed that I am choosing to exercise my right to remain silent and my right to refuse to answer your questions. If I am detained, I request to contact an attorney immediately. I am also exercising my right to refuse to sign anything until I consult with my attorney. Thank you.

While this may not be enough or even offer much for anyone living in fear, I hope if you’ve found this it will offer at least a tiny bit of comfort. Click here for the link.

Now for a word to those who think they they are justified in supporting Trump’s racist, inhumane attack on ‘illegal’ immigrants (are none of you aware that if you are of European descent you, too, are an immigrant- this country was invaded by immigrants). Let’s go over a summary of you cruel beliefs and lies, as well as what the truth to those lies regarding “illegal” immigrants really are.no immigration ban.png

If you believe in the deportation and illegal immigration that is going on, you support the following facts as well. To do so and not be bothered is not only heartless but also shows your privilege -which most of you deny-, your false feelings of superiority, your ignorance (or most likely your stupidity), and your inhumane depravity.

Supporting immigration bans and deportations means you are supporting the following… From words to actions…all of it is a disgrace to humanity.

First, starting with labels… To define human beings as legal or illegal is sick enough in my opinion, but to then support and also be okay with their detainment and deportation despite what it means to their safety or their very lives?  

Oh and let’s not forget the fact that you also are supporting ripping people from their mothers, fathers, grandparents, wives, husbands, their children. And the impact on these people, including the innocent children, never strikes your alleged pro-life beliefs of being savage or gods forbid, wrong.

People are suffering in numbers virtually uncountable; in ways most people cannot even conceive. The fear they face even just sending their children to school or going to work no one can understand unless they are living it which you obviously are not being a supporter.

Worse yet, the very arrest and detainment process in itself is not even done to the standard being considered creditable, much less considerate or humane. Trump officials have been caught in the illegal act of “bullying” police departments into doing work ICE “legally” cannot do, such as entering a person’s residence without a warrant. Some police departments surprisingly have brought these attempts to national attention and declined taking part in their actions publicly, but not all have been so kind.

We can see more cruelty in the arrest and detainment process by looking at just one story of a woman in Texas. This proves no place is safe, not even medical care is taken into consideration, nor does safety come even after a person has been admitted to a hospital. They made this last month when ICE invaded the hospital room of a woman with a brain tumor, tying her ankles and wrists before dragging her to a ‘detention center’, cutting off her ability to contact the outside world -this included doctors and family.

All of this from self righteous “people” who support this for one of the following (emphasized by Trump’s lies)…

…immigrants from China and Vietnam and India more broadly, Trump in April of this year said our “jobs are being stolen … like candy from a baby.” In August 2015, Rasmussen—a conservative-leaning polling groupfound that 51% of respondents believe “illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from U.S. citizens.”

Research has found the reality of “illegal immigrants”“illegal immigrants” in America to be the exact opposite of Trump’s claims. This is but a small portion of many studies you can easily locate for yourself by some easy research.

Immigrant workers are actively lured to the United States largely by big business employers who don’t want to pay decent wages. But American families also rely on cheap goods and services to maintain a sense of material status. Also, after decades of wage stagnation where we’re all working more and more hours to make ends meet, U.S.-born workers rely on low-wage nannies and housekeepers and other service workers to pick up the slack of family life. According to data cited by the Wall Street Journal, every 1 new immigrant creates 1.2 new jobs for local workers. 

Also,

“…considering that comprehensive immigration reform—legislation both parties once supported—would boost employment, investment and productivity and grow the tax base, the jobs case against undocumented immigrants is increasingly hard to make.”

Next, somehow these people have began to claim –incorrectly– immigrants are a drain to public benefits. Trump, like most anti’s, depend only on fake, fabricated or deceptive facts known as alternative facts; never do they have a respectable source to cite.

As Time so accurately puts it:

Citing a study by an anti-immigrant organization, Trump said: “illegal immigrant households receive far more in welfare benefits” than native citizens.That assertion has been disputed by the conservative Cato Institute, which actually found that they are less likely to use welfare benefits than citizens—both in terms of frequency and dollar amount.

How can that statement ever be true when it has been made illegal for undocumented immigrants to obtain public benefits. They do not qualify for food stamps, Medicaid or any of the other public benefits despite the fact that they pay approximately  $13 billion in payroll taxes annually (that’s a net gain, by the way).

They help to fund the public benefits they cannot receive yet the very same people complaining about this false issue could or can or even do receive public benefits of all sort.

To take it one step further, if people took a look at the 1996 welfare law, they would learn that not even legal immigrants don’t have access to public benefits until they’ve been in America for more than five years.

As for Social Security, Trump and his deceitful supporters would have us believe that illegal immigrants also don’t pay money towards these benefits but take advantage of it, nevertheless.

The reality is very different.

Illegal immigrants, again, are not even eligible to collect Social Security (SSA) benefits. Despite that, they still are responsible for paying $100 billion in Social Security. According to a statement by the SSA to CNNMoney regarding illegal immigrants and social security benefits:

“They are paying an estimated $15 billion a year into Social Security with no intention of ever collecting benefits,” Stephen Goss, chief actuary of the SSA told CNNMoney. “Without the estimated 3.1 million undocumented immigrants paying into the system, Social Security would have entered persistent shortfall of tax revenue to cover payouts starting in 2009,” he said. 

Stephen Goss went on to say how vital these workers are in maintaining as well as improving, quote,

“…the effects of the decline in U.S.-born workers paying into the system.”

FURTHER, the Social Security Board of Trustees projects  by 2037 that the system won’t any longer be able to pay rightful benefits promised to “American citizens”.

These allegations of “illegal” immigrants being the reason for unemployment, accusing them of stealing, abusing or whatever other hateful alternative “facts” can be verified if people are willing to do some research and reading. I’ve addressed a few above, but for more facts or simple information, don’t use your same biased resources but instead use an independent resource so you can become aware of
what you are saying, before you speak.

I hope those of you who were unaware will now head off to research the real facts, not the racist, biased ones planted in their minds via Fox News or Donald Trump.

With too many people and families in America facing –unrightfully so,- being ripped apart from their families, taken back to a violent or dangerous situation or country, just to name a few circumstances going on now with the “bans” and raids on people for no reason, I’d think knowing what you believe and support as your politics would be made the ever more important, for those who care for the consideration and care of other human lives.

Think Immigration Won’t Impact You Because You’re ‘LEGAL’?

“The simple statistic that 35 percent of our current farm labor force is made up of unauthorized workers points to a massive ripple effect in our agricultural economy and all that it touches (read: everything) were all those workers to magically disappear. But that’s the fairy-tale vision of the elimination of unauthorized labor. The reality is far messier, far more immediate, and far wider-reaching. Both authorized and unauthorized workers are affected by increasingly hostile federal attitudes to their labor…” – This information and documentation continues below, after a quick thought.

So, if you don’t think Trump and the immigration/refugee attack is important or that it will have no impact on you, your family or your life? Might want to rethink that after you read the following facts, with proof and back up evidence. The facts follow this little introduction of mine.
NOTE- I’m posting this as a side note; it is my belief it is the lives that matter most and should be of our utmost concern and importance. But in attempt to reach anyone inactive that may need “a little bit more” to care, and for those whom already care and simply seek information to add on to the reasons why the latest immigration policy -which is just as inhumane as his first- is a disgrace and threat to humanity.
Read about the posing terrorist threat to human life deemed “illegal” by clicking here.

Virtually all of the newly open agriculture jobs will pay poverty-line wages, and they won’t be opening up in the areas of the country where unemployment is the highest, as Alabama has proven. Unfortunately for anyone worried that unauthorized laborers are taking jobs away from citizens, that means that these open positions are unlikely to be filled — at least, not by currently unemployed American citizens. Otherwise, maybe Trump’s own winery wouldn’t have needed to request temporary worker visas for its employees.

In fact, it’s likely that Trump’s anti-immigration policies will result in even more jobs disappearing: As Kathleen Merrigan, executive director of sustainability at George Washington University and a former Deputy Secretary of Agriculture under Obama, told Eater’s Dana Hatic,

“Farmers, particularly those working in specialty crops, have already moved some of their operations outside of the country because they can’t find adequate labor.” Dave Runsten, policy director for the Community Alliance with Family Farmers, explained to Hatic that the effect of Trump’s immigration decisions will accelerate that process: “As wages go up and the availability of labor goes down … The largest farms will mechanize or move to Mexico or” — as at Trump Winery — “get Trump to let them import guest workers.”

Few more of my thoughts…

The American government of the “free world”… offering another look at what a true hypocritical country should be. America. Where we started out with vicious and sadistic abuse on the Natives and Africans and countless other nationalities by enslaving, following up with prejudice hate for anyone with Black or “dark” skin via further slavery under new names which are in effect to this very day via the police and prison industry (and school system but that’s for another time) and those are just a few examples of the continued racism which goes back centuries to the beginning of this country, and now includes anyone who do not hold a status of being truly “American”.

Yep, the good ol’ American government continues its legacy more blatantly and proud than it has in hundreds of years. This is just the beginning. When Trump said make Amerikkka great “again” he meant make it white and lazy again, but do it with a smile and pride for the other countries to see; screw hiding racism and prejudice behavior!
As this continues to progress from immigrants to citizens who are not white and/or rich, the more action you take now, the better chance we have of reversing and hopefully going down a NEW path for the first time in American HISTORY.

 

Immigration Policy- Trump’s Terrorist Attack Update

Friday, John Kelly signed new “sweeping” guidelines which would give the Federal authorities even further legalized power for both seasoned agents and patrol as well as the new 15,000+ newly hired to add even more aggression to their efforts in detaining and deporting undocumented immigrants.But Kelly’s draft doesn’t even stop there. If signed into law it also makes it legal to force the immediate return of Mexican immigrants upon seizure. 

This is insane and out of control; I can only hope it won’t be passed. Please read on and see the following links for more details on the developing criminal action in motion. And let us not forget the already occurring raids on immigrants going on right now; forcing many to flee for Canada.

“A U.S. official familiar with the documents did not dispute the accuracy of the memos signed by Kelly, which were originally scheduled for release Friday before they were postponed for White House review.

A White House official said the White House has raised objections with the documents and is working with DHS to finalize the policy. The official was not authorized to discuss the process publicly and insisted on anonymity.

Under the draft guidelines, Kelly seeks to “expeditiously hire” 10,000 more enforcement agents and 5,000 Border Patrol officers.

Seeking to fulfill Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the Mexican border, Kelly also calls on Customs and Border Protection to “immediately begin planning, design, construction and maintenance of a wall, including the attendant lighting, technology (including sensors), as well as patrol and access roads.”

Cali Lawmakers Working to Help Immigrants Statewide

This is a bit of hopeful news during a time of prejudice, racist hate-filled insanity by a person who is a danger and threat to any person. Something I think by now any humane person can clearly see. I hope Cali succeeds and may other states follow, until we have a real president.

Legislative Democrats in California have advanced a bill that would provide statewide sanctuary for immigrants by restricting local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Game of Thrones Cast Joins IRC to Campaign for Syrian Refugees

I hope by now that mostly everyone is at the VERY LEAST aware of Syria and the refugees all over the world, it’s sad to say there is still awareness being raised because, it at least seems, as though too many in this  world simply do not care. The many horror Syrian’s have been undergoing the past few years and counting have been rejected by too much of the world, be it people or governments; so organizations such as International Rescue Committee (IRC),  have taken it upon themselves to do what any and all of us able should do; especially our governments.

Now IRC and members of the cast of Game of Thrones have teamed up to raise money and awareness together. Before I go on, I have to give a quick rant and I apologize for it as I realize it’s uncalled for at this moment but I can’t help it:

If you know me, you should know I am 100% obsessed with Game of Thrones; the book series, not HBO’s TV version. They’ve taken arguably the best story line and characters and tore it all apart, went to put it back together, forgot how it originally was and the end result is/was a mess. I watch the show as fan fiction even though it angers me beyond words lol. I’m passionate, damn it. The story is massively different; the characters personalities and roles are wrong, virtually everything is wrong with the show, if one asks me. X_X But I digress. *ahem* <Sorry.

One thing that’s NOT wrong, however, is what actors and actresses from the fan adaption of Game of Thrones have decided to do in regards to speaking out for Syrian refugees.

Rescue Has No Boundaries is a joint campaign between the International Rescue Committee and the actors and actresses of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, (READ THE BOOKS!) to bring awareness and raise money for Syrian refugees.

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 12.23.10 AMThough it’s sad this world needs to depend on entertainers to raise money and/or bring awareness to issues such as Syrian Refugees as well as the conflict in Syria, I think it’s highly respectable of every actor and actress involved in Rescue Has No Boundaries to be using their voice for these people… I admire them for standing up for the Syrian people and a world crisis that is not reported or covered enough or if so it is all too often misreported; the problems in Syria and the Syrian people who have been ignored and rejected for extremely too long.

Article:

“Mass exodus: millions on the move, escaping war, famine and destruction,” Headey says in the PSA, describing the experience of the roughly 11 million people who have either left the country or been displaced inside Syria since 2011.

The IRC is the only international relief agency working to help people still in Syria, as well as in countries such as Turkey and Greece that have received the bulk of people who have fled the war-torn nation. Headey explains in the clip that the IRC hopes to raise enough cash from the public to assist 3 million people.

FULL COVERAGE:  The Global Refugee Crisis

Although people can donate on the IRC’s website, for the real super fans out there, the campaign has partnered with charity platform Omaze to raffle off cool Game of Thrones prizes, including a chance for supporters to hang with the cast at the season six premiere in April.

The violence and war will surely continue on upcoming episodes, but Headey and company are committed to peace.

“Every month, hundreds of thousands flee their homes. Refugees, families, children struggling to stay alive,” the cast members say in a montage. “Real people now on the most dangerous journey of all. What would you do to protect your life, your family, your future? You can help.”

Sign the petition here and listen to Game of Thrones actors/actresses speak out on the struggles and needs Syrian refugees endure, what the world can do, is doing; and what we can do.You can watch the video at this link – I can’t the video to embed for some reason. =(
