In The News / (1963) MALCOLM X, “RACIAL SEPARATION”
« on: June 20, 2020, 06:42:33 PM »
"Many of us turn to crime, stealing, gambling, prostitution. And some of us are used by the white overlords downtown to push dope in the Negro community among our own people. Unemployment and poverty have forced many of our people into a life of crime. But the real criminal is in the City Hall downtown, in the State House, and in the White House in Washington, D.C. The real criminal is the white liberal, the political hypocrite. And it is these legal crooks who pose as our friends, force us into a life of crime, and then use us to spread the white man’s evil vices in our community among our own people."

"Has the government effort to bribe our people with token integration made our plight better; or has it made it worse? When you tried to integrate the white community in search of better housing, the whites there fled to the suburbs. And the community that you thought would be integrated soon deteriorated into another all-Black slum. What happened to the liberal whites? Why did they flee? We thought that they were supposed to be our friends. And why did the neighborhood deteriorate only after our people moved in?"

"But the only permanent solution is complete separation or some land of our own in a country of our own. All other courses will lead to violence and bloodshed. It will lead to the destruction of America, and it will also lead to the destruction of our people who fall for it. So his message is flee for your lives and save yourselves. And I thank you."

In The News / Thank you America!
« on: June 06, 2020, 03:36:53 PM »
The world owes the United States of America a thank-you, job well done.

D-Day
During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

D-Day Landings: June 6, 1944

By dawn on June 6, thousands of paratroopers and glider troops were already on the ground behind enemy lines, securing bridges and exit roads. The amphibious invasions began at 6:30 a.m. The British and Canadians overcame light opposition to capture beaches codenamed Gold, Juno and Sword, as did the Americans at Utah Beach. U.S. forces faced heavy resistance at Omaha Beach, where there were over 2,000 American casualties. However, by day’s end, approximately 156,000 Allied troops had successfully stormed Normandy’s beaches. According to some estimates, more than 4,000 Allied troops lost their lives in the D-Day invasion, with thousands more wounded or missing.

Less than a week later, on June 11, the beaches were fully secured and over 326,000 troops, more than 50,000 vehicles and some 100,000 tons of equipment had landed at Normandy.

For their part, the Germans suffered from confusion in the ranks and the absence of celebrated commander Rommel, who was away on leave. At first, Hitler, believing the invasion was a feint designed to distract the Germans from a coming attack north of the Seine River, refused to release nearby divisions to join the counterattack. Reinforcements had to be called from further afield, causing delays. He also hesitated in calling for armored divisions to help in the defense. Moreover, the Germans were hampered by effective Allied air support, which took out many key bridges and forced the Germans to take long detours, as well as efficient Allied naval support, which helped protect advancing Allied troops.

In the ensuing weeks, the Allies fought their way across the Normandy countryside in the face of determined German resistance, as well as a dense landscape of marshes and hedgerows. By the end of June, the Allies had seized the vital port of Cherbourg, landed approximately 850,000 men and 150,000 vehicles in Normandy, and were poised to continue their march across France.

Victory in Normandy

By the end of August 1944, the Allies had reached the Seine River, Paris was liberated and the Germans had been removed from northwestern France, effectively concluding the Battle of Normandy. The Allied forces then prepared to enter Germany, where they would meet up with Soviet troops moving in from the east.

The Normandy invasion began to turn the tide against the Nazis. A significant psychological blow, it also prevented Hitler from sending troops from France to build up his Eastern Front against the advancing Soviets. The following spring, on May 8, 1945, the Allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. Hitler had committed suicide a week earlier, on April 30.

Greatest country in the history of the world!

The U.S.A. proves once again that we are number one!

SpaceX makes history, launches NASA astronauts into space from US soil for the first time since 2011.


SpaceX has launched NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on their historic Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The mission is the first time that astronauts have launched from American soil since the final Space Shuttle flight in 2011.

The launch is the first time a private company, rather than a national government, has sent astronauts into orbit.

Love
Don't rescue me
I’ve got nowhere
Better I want to be

I want to be held
But not beholden
Standing my ground
With one eye open

This fight doesn't quite add up

Love
I thought you were free
But now I'm on the hook
For all you've given me

Does it matter what I say
Or think or do?
You see what you see
With the lens you're looking through

This fight keeps me tied
To the worst in me
And it's killing me
Killing me
Killing me

Love
I'm losing my voice
You led me to believe
I had a choice

Let's pause
Retract our claws
You could take my side
While I take yours

This fight keeps me tied
To the worst in me
And it's killing me
Killing me
Killing me

Love
Come rescue me
I've got nowhere
Better I want to be

This fight keeps me tied
To the worst in me
And it's Killing me
Killing me
Killing me
Killing me
Killing me

In The News / Finally: Criminal investigation
« on: October 24, 2019, 09:34:46 PM »
Justice Department review into origins of Russia probe turns into criminal investigation.

A probe by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has changed from an administrative review into a criminal investigation, a person familiar with the review confirmed to NBC News.

The review is being conducted by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham. The New York Times first reported Thursday that the administrative review has turned into a criminal investigation.

It’s not clear when the change occurred, but the probe began in May as an administrative review.

The Times reported that the change in status gives Durham the power to subpoena witness testimony and documents, to impanel a grand jury and to file criminal charges.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly called the Russia investigation conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller a “witch hunt.”

Republicans have suggested the investigation stemmed from a plot by members of the Obama Administration and career intelligence officials, in what they call the "Deep State," to undermine Trump.

In The News / Joe Biden: 'I want to be clear, I'm not going nuts'
« on: August 26, 2019, 09:37:08 PM »
Put a fork in sleepy, creepy uncle joe.
He is done.
Sadly joe has lost his mind.
And the primary.

Democratic front-runner Joe Biden and his camp should be very worried about his presidential chances, political operatives say, citing his almost-daily gaffes while on the campaign trail — including during a New Hampshire stop over the weekend when the former vice president said he was in Vermont.

"It’s a cause for concern if you’re running for president, especially if you’re not sure what state you’re in,” said Phil Johnston, the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s former chairman. “We all love and respect him, but in 2020 we have to make sure the nominee is up the task of taking on President Trump.”

The 76-year-old presidential candidate looking to attract voters in the first-in-the-nation primary state Saturday said he was in the bordering state.


Biden in Keene, N.H., said, “I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? And what a neat town … everybody has been really friendly. I like Keene a lot.”

This comment came a day after he spoke in Hanover, N.H., about the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.

“Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee? What would have happened in America?”

Biden must immediately stop making these gaffes, Johnston said.

“He needs to show he’s up to the task of being president, day-in and day-out for the next 14 months,” said Johnston, who said he’s leaning toward supporting U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the primary. “If he continues to make these mistakes, many people will be concerned.”

Biden has not slipped in the polls despite the near-daily slip of the tongue, said pollster John Zogby.

“But if they (gaffes) continue, and they probably will continue, it may ultimately matter to the public,” Zogby added.

In a hypothetical Biden versus Trump matchup, they could end up “neutralizing each other” because of the amount of gaffes the president makes, Zogby said.

“What he has to be careful of now is that people don’t think these gaffes reflect a problem of his mental acuity. Now questions are being raised is because he’s older,” said Boston University professor Tobe Berkowitz, a veteran of Democratic political campaigns,  adding that the other Dem hopefuls will continue to pound on this line of attack, especially behind the scenes. “His political opponents are probably dropping a lot of dimes on this.”

The consistency of Biden’s gaffes should definitely be concerning for Democrats, said N.H. state Rep. Fred Doucette, who was a state co-chair for Trump’s 2016 campaign.
