DEAR PROFESSOR FORD

At this point, I have no words.

This has been on my mind since one week ago, when Dr. Ford identified herself as the victim of alleged sexual assault by the nominee to the vacant seat on the Supreme Court of the United States.

I can barely being to imagine how she’s feeling in view of the event that happened 36 years ago, her identifying herself and the subsequent situation she has endured since her identity became known.

I don’t want to write about the actions of the old curmudgeons, white men who sit on the Judiciary Committee, two of whom where in this same place in history during the Anita Hill hearings. I only want to mention that we, the people, are not blind to the reasons for your actions.

Your legacy, if any, will forever be tainted and if that man sits on SCOTUS, his tenure will be forever tainted. The ‘highest court in the land’ will have two members who has been accused of sexual misconduct.

“Dear Professor Ford” Video Shows Activists and Celebrities Backing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

In a video circulating Twitter shared with the hashtag #WeBelieveYou, dozens of women showed support for Palo Alto professor Christine Blasey Ford.

The video, titled #DearProfessorFord, shows celebrities, attorneys, and activists lauding Ford for speaking up about her allegation against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh, who has categorically denied the allegation, has been called on by the Senate Judiciary Committee to appear at a hearing on Monday, as has Ford.

“Dear Professor Ford,” the women in the video say, “we know how difficult it is to stand up to powerful people.

We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence.

As members of the Senate determine whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should serve as a Supreme Court Justice, this context is critical.”

The different figures in the video then refer to Ford’s sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, saying that “the behavior you described was wrong and runs directly counter to upholding the law and promoting justice.”

What Does Toad From Mario Kart Look Like Then?

Toad  is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo’s Mario franchise. Created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, he is portrayed as a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom and is one of Princess Peach’s most loyal attendants; constantly working on her behalf.

The Twitterverse is having a collective meltdown over the fact that Mario Kart became a trending topic today for all the wrong reasons.

No, the beloved Super Mario-themed racing game franchise is not getting the 9th installment, not yet anyway. Stormy Daniel’s remarks attracted online attention really fast, particularly the fact that she compared Drumpf’s penis to the good citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.

CARMEN YULIN CRUZ

~MAYOR OF SAN JUAN, THE CAPITAL CITY OF PUERTO RICO~

Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto (born February 25, 1963) is an American politician who is the current mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Cruz is affiliated with the Popular Democratic Party.

I have to confess that I didn’t know anything about this woman.

The first time I heard about her was during those terrible days after Hurricane María battered my country. I live in the mainland. I’ve been away from home since 1999.

She became the voice for those in the diaspora as we hungered for news about our country.

To this day you will hear negative comments about her.

She didn’t do her job, she took advantage of the situation to benefit her own political ambitions, she forgot about the people of San Juan, she’s posing because she wants to run for governor, she’s a socialist, she aligns herself with Puerto Rico’s independence while pretending to be a member of the Partido Popular Democrático, etc., etc.

I don’t care what they say about her, I don’t care what they think … to me, she became that voice that we desperately needed to hear.

She’s the only political official who has stood up to Drumpf and his administration. 

Yul8

I was hungry for news about the Island after the devastating hurricane

 I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I lived there all my life. I lived through many hurricanes, not María, of course. I know the landscape of my country. I know how the towns in the central part of the island were affected without me being there. I know, without being there, how the medical needs couldn’t be addressed because of lack of power. I knew 16, 64 deaths were not correct. There are at least 11 refrigerated vans at the forensic facility containing bodies … the capacity to conduct autopsies and eventual identification has been overwhelmed.

I have family and friends who were without power for 11 months. When communication was possible, I finally was able to get in touch with them. I sent care packages to them including the most basic items that we generally take for granted. I already went back to see.

By the time I returned, there was a semblance of recovery.

Yes, power is restored … not totally. And it’s still very fragile.

Power outings for hours and days at a time are commonplace.

Politics in Puerto Rico is ‘the national sport’. 

My political ideology related to Puerto Rico has gone through a gamut of feelings, ideas and a new conviction. The relationship with the United States is difficult to define.

I think it depends who you hear it from.

Drumpf …. “🇵🇷 Denies nearly 3,000 Americans in Puerto Rico died in the aftermath of two back to back Hurricanes: Irma and María 🇵🇷 …. “!!

Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

~HEADLINES~

On September 6, 2017, Hurricane Irma carved a merciless path of destruction through the Caribbean, killing at least 12 people, leaving thousands of others homeless and plunging more than 1 million residents of Puerto Rico into darkness.

Hurricane María the storm made landfall on September 20. María wreaked havoc on the island, causing a level of widespread destruction and disorganization paralleled by few storms in American history. Almost two weeks after the storm abated, most of the island’s residents still lack access to electricity and clean water.

TCart12

The aftermath of these hurricanes are well known to all Puerto Ricans.

The federal response, under the watch of Drumpf, was deficient, miserable and responsible for the deaths of 3,000+ Puerto Rican citizens.

The numbers have changed: 16, 64, 1,400, 2,975, 4,645 …

I believe that the real number will never be known.

I will never forget. I will never forgive!

“They did not die in the hurricane.

They died in pain, at home, of kidney failure unable to access the dialysis clinic for weeks.

They died, gasping for hours near the end, when the oxygen tank they needed to breathe gave out.

They died in the dark and the heat of unsanitary ICU units, of burns or gunshot wounds received before the hurricane that they almost certainly would have survived otherwise.

They died, burning up with fever, of leptospirosis from being in touch with flood waters during the effort to save their neighbors.

They died in fear and confusion after being forced to go off their regular medication.
They died of heat stroke.

They died of diseases of antiquity, in a crisis of neglect unworthy the greatest, wealthiest and most powerful nation in human history.

They died. But we lived. And we remember.”

Drumpf denied this reality as a hurricane barrels toward the Carolinas

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000.

DJTweets

Earlier this month, the island’s governor formally raised the death toll from Hurricane Maria to an estimated 2,975 from 64 following a study conducted by researchers at The George Washington University.

CNN’s own reporting reflects similar numbers.

The university study accounted for Puerto Ricans who succumbed to the stifling heat and other aftereffects of the storm and had not been previously counted in official figures

“I think Puerto Rico was incredibly successful,” Drumpf said Tuesday in the Oval Office, noting that the island location is “tough” during a hurricane due to the inability to transport vital equipment and supplies by truck. “It was one of the best jobs that’s ever been done with respect to what this is all about.”

COLIN KAEPERNICK

TRIUMPHANT RETURN

I must confess I’m not a football fan; I really don’t know much about the game; I really don’t care about it.

However, I do know a lot about Colin Kaepernick.

I respect the man and agree with the peaceful protest and the message that he’s trying to bring to the forefront by using the platform that he had when he was able to play football.

After being shunned for at least two seasons; after continued pressure from the NFL, after continued disparaging from the occupant of the Oval Office, Kap makes a triumphant return!

Take a look.

HOW DID THIS BEGIN?

In a 49ers’ final preseason game, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided sit on the bench to protest racial inequality and police brutality for the national anthem.

~TAKING A  KNEE~

Former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.

“Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother’s grave, you know, to show respect. When we’re on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security.”

GoldSwirl

It was US Army veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested to Kaepernick to take a knee as a sign of respect

This is their inspiring story of what can happen when people with different perspectives decide to sit down, have a conversation, and hear each other out.

KapC3

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Critics accused the protest of disrespecting the US flag and military and Drumpf called for players who protested during the anthem to be fired.

Nike released a commercial starring Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday, September 5, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Drumpf.

Nike and Kaepernick posted the commercial on Twitter and YouTube.

The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.

Kaepernick narrates the ad, which features a wide range of athletes including inspirational amateurs, Serena Williams, and LeBron James.
Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, which does not feature the former NFL player in football gear.

REVISED DEATH TOLL IN PUERTO RICO

REMEMBER WHEN?

We ALL knew!

The official count is 16, then 64, then 4,645!

Now, after a study done by professionals, the official number is 2,975.

Who can anyone be sure?

Shame on Drumpf … it won’t matter because he doesn’t care!!
She’s the only person who has been vocal about the situation in Puerto Rico since Hurricanes Irma and María battered Puerto Rico!!

Let this recorded interview explain itself.

Plenty others have remained quiet.

For that, she has my utmost respect!

San Juan mayor says the Drumpf administration killed thousands through neglect during Hurricane María

Washington (CNN)

The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, said Wednesday, August 29, that bureaucracy and inefficiency across local and federal government entities are to blame for the deaths of nearly 3,000 on the island in the wake of Hurricane María, which came to light as part of a newly released study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government.
In particular, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blamed Drumpf, federal officials and Puerto Rican officials for not providing more assistance in what the Puerto Rican government now acknowledges was a storm deadlier than Hurricane Katrina.

CYC3

“You know, everybody is responsible because there were people in power that had the opportunity to request more aid, to request more aid when it was reasonable, to request more aid when it was needed, to tell the truth and they didn’t,”

Yulín Cruz told CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota.

“It’s 2,975 people and they’re still calling it an estimate – 2,975 people that will never see the light of day and many of them died because of what was done by the administration and that was silently approved by most of the political class in Puerto Rico.”

Just after midnight on Sunday night, August 26, the flag flying above the White House was hoisted back to full staff.

Earlier Monday, the White House flag had returned to its regular position even as other flags around Washington – including at the US Capitol – remained in the half-staff mourning position.
But on Monday afternoon, August 27, the White House once again lowered the flag to half-staff and Trump, in his statement said he “signed a proclamation to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff until the day of his interment.”

Drumpf has been mocked for forgetting the colors of the American flag during a visit to a children’s hospital this weekend.

In pictures posted by Mr. Azar on Twitter, Drumpf fills in one of the stripes on the star-spangled banner with a blue felt-tip pen.
