PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY

This is terrifying and totally goes against the Constitution which so many politicians ascribe to.

For example:

‘an array of anti-protesting laws that center on stiffening penalties for demonstrators who block traffic; in North Dakota, conservatives are even pushing a bill that would allow motorists to run over and kill protesters so long as the collision was accidental.’

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE & UNPRECEDENTED!

FIRST AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION

‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

LAWMAKERS IN TEN STATES HAVE PROPOSED LEGISLATION CRIMINALIZING PEACEFUL PROTEST

Spencer Woodman

Millions of demonstrators took to streets across the country to mobilize against the ‘so-called president‘ and his agenda, assembling in a national turnout that organizers call the beginning of a reinvigorated protest movement. But in states home to dozens of demonstrations, Republican lawmakers are moving to criminalize and increase penalties on peaceful protesting.

Minnesota, Washington State, Michigan, Iowa, Virginia, Colorado,  North Carolina, Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana

Thoughts for today, #466 …. “Sen. Elizabeth Warren …. Can’t change the truth …. “!!

SHE PERSISTED

#ShePersisted goes viral after Senate votes to silence Warren

BY PAULINA FIROZI

02/08/17 08:10 AM EST

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) inadvertently created a rallying cry for supporters of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when he rebuked her after the Senate voted to prevent her from speaking.

As Democrats held the Senate floor overnight to protest Sen. Jeff Sessions’s (R-Ala.) nomination for attorney general, Warren quoted a 1986 letter that the late Coretta Scott King, a civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., wrote opposing Sessions’s nomination for a federal judgeship at the time.

goldswirl

“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The Senate voted 49-43 along party lines to prevent Warren from speaking on the Senate floor for the remainder of debate on Sessions’s nomination.

THIS LAND WAS MADE

How can any one with a heart not understand the desire and need that some people have to come to America?

How can anyone keep people in need away?

Watch this ad and for 6 minutes put yourself in the shoes of that mother.

Feel her hope, feel her fear, feel her apprehension!

THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME!

No words are needed.

Please, watch the ad.

This Land Is Your Land” is one of the United States’ most famous folk songs. Its lyrics were written by American folk singer Woody Guthrie in 1940 based on an existing melody, a Carter Family tune called “When the World’s on Fire“, in critical response to Irving Berlin‘s “God Bless America.” When Guthrie was tired of hearing Kate Smith sing it on the radio in the late 1930’s he sarcastically wrote “God Blessed America for Me” before renaming it “This Land Is Your Land.”

The original lyrics to the song included this verse

“There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me.

The sign was painted, said ‘Private Property.’

But on the backside, it didn’t say nothing.

This land was made for you and me.”

Here’s The ‘Controversial’ Super Bowl Ad That Crashed 84 Lumber’s Website
Watch the full commercial here

The ad featured a Spanish-speaking mother and daughter apparently traveling from Mexico to the United States.

The end, which shows the pair discovering a door in a giant wall, was reportedly banned from TV since it commented on Drumpf’s, the #SoCalledPresident, promised border wall.

After showing part of the ad, 84 Lumber directed people to check out Journey84.com to see the rest. That obviously didn’t work.

Thankfully, that’s why there’s YouTube.

Google Doodle for today …. “Fred Korematsu …. Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution”!!


googd

~~January 30, 2017~~ 

GOOGLE DOODLE FOR TODAY

‘The co-founder of Google, Sergey Brin, immigrated to the U.S. when he was a small child, so the Drumpf’s immigration fiasco hit him hard.

Brin was born in Moscow, and his family of Russian Jews fled in the 1970’s.

Brin decided to protest against Trump’s ridiculous immigrant ban by placing Japanese internment camp survivor Fred Korematsu front and center on Google.’

bline

Fred Toyosaburo Korematsu (January 30, 1919 – March 30, 2005) was an American civil rights activist who objected to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Shortly after the Imperial Japanese Navy launched its attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which authorized that individuals of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast were to be removed from their homes and forced to live in internment camps, but Korematsu instead challenged the orders and became a fugitive.

The legality of the internment order was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in Korematsu v. United States; this ruling has never been explicitly overturned. Korematsu’s conviction for evading internment was overturned decades later after the disclosure of new evidence challenging the necessity of the internment, evidence which had been withheld from the courts by the U.S. government during the war.

To commemorate his journey as a civil rights activist, the “Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution” was observed for the first time on January 30, 2011, by the state of California, the first such commemoration for an Asian American in the United States.

blinemedbline

In 2015, Virginia passed legislation to make it the second state and first commonwealth to permanently recognize each January 30 as Fred Korematsu Day.

The Fred T. Korematsu Institute was founded in 2009 to carry on Korematsu’s legacy as a civil rights advocate by educating and advocating for civil liberties for all communities.

Why do I Blog? …. “My Very Personal Perspective …. “!!


iblog

~~January 18, 2017~~ 

MY PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE

I retired from my full time job as a physician with the Veterans Administration in February 2013.

I knew I was going to have plenty of time on my hands and wanted to find something to do.

It was almost by chance that I started blogging.

With the help of a very dear friend, Ra-Mazing, this platform was set up.

rbline

This is part of what my ‘about‘ says on this blog:

“I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything.

Music and reading are my passion.

Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected.

My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need.”

We ALL are ONE!!

rbline

My intentions are truly to share any knowledge I have with anyone who is willing to listen.

However, it seems to me, that almost all I post about now is related to this ‘man‘ who has been chosen by Russia to be the in-coming president of the country I live in.

You may not believe me but, even though it looks different, I’m tired of his antics.

I don’t want to focus only on him.

However, the lighthearted part of me seems to have taken a back seat in view of the seriousness of what we face.

Plenty of times I wonder why I stay on this track.

rbline

I received an answer today!

A dear friend, from across the oceans, sent me this message today, and with his permission, I’m sharing this with you!

He made my day!

Hi, Horty

Just thought I’d let you know that you are in my thoughts and that I’m proud of how you have registered your disgust and displeasure at the imminent installation of Fuckface von Clownstick as leader of the (currently) free world.
I really feel for you and your fellow sane Americans and I’m glad there are so many of you with principles and a conscience; it’s people like you who are the true hope for the future.

Know that you have my undying admiration, for your staunch defense of your country in the face of such ignorance and hate and I’m very glad to call you my friend.

Stay strong and continue to resist the odious rhetoric of Orange Donnie and his cronies and be sure that you will always have support from those of us who value love and compassion above stupidity and jingoism.

Peace!

G.T.

rbline

At least I know, that there’s someone, somewhere, who understands, maybe values and learns from, the information that I’m trying to share as I post.

I feel a degree of validation from his words.

And, as such, I have truly thanked him!

WATER IS LIFE

(Mni Wiconi)

Mni Wiconi (Lakota for “Water is Life”)

A few weeks ago, early January, the Hollywood sign altered to read ‘Hollyweed‘.

Armed with four tarpaulins, a prankster had climbed Mount Lee under the cover of night to edit the iconic landmark, and changed it to “HOLLYWeeD.”

Wouldn’t it have been awesome if, instead, it read ‘Mni Wiconi’?

Just sayin’

~MY BELIEFS~

I stand with my Lakota and Dakota brothers and sisters because I believe the central question of the creation story is at the heart of their lament and their protest:

What will we do with the blessing of power God has given us?

This is a particularly poignant God-question for those of us who have the power of privilege in our country and the world.

PEACEFUL PROTESTS

Nonviolent Resistance

Nonviolent resistance (NVR or nonviolent action) is the practice of achieving goals such as social change through symbolic protests, civil disobedience, economic or political noncooperation, satyagraha, or other methods, without using violence.

~Wikipedia~

As the day draws closer, as more and more policies are withdrawn and rejected, as new ones as forcibly introduce, we must stand up.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the United States Congress from enacting legislation that would abridge the right of the people to assemble peaceably.

 The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution makes this prohibition applicable to state governments.

The Supreme Court of the United States has held that the First Amendment protects the right to conduct a peaceful public assembly.

Thoughts for today, #452 …. “Seditious Conspiracy: Oscar López Rivera …. not more than 20 years …. “!!

OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA

Seditious Conspiracy

In other words, trying to harm the United States, right?

Conspire to overthrow, contrary to the authority …

The more I read this, the more familiar it sounds to me.

I think this is happening during our current times!

You know what I’m saying … by covert means.

HortyRex©

bline

Oscar López Rivera is an Independentista, a Puerto Rican Nationalist and member of FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation), an organization whose members declared themselves combatants against the US colonization of Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico was invaded and subsequently seized by the US in 1898, and has since been denied the right to self-govern. While Puerto Ricans vote in the primary, serve in the US armed forces, are required to register for selective service and can be drafted to fight in US wars, Puerto Ricans living on the island are not allowed to vote in presidential elections and have no voting representatives in the US Senate or Congress.

FALN claimed responsibility for more than 120 bomb attacks on banks, military sites and government facilities across the US between 1974 and 1980, which led to the 1980 arrest of 11 men and women for seditious conspiracy.

Although he was named a co-defendant in the case, Oscar López Rivera was not arrested until a year later, when he was picked up during a traffic stop, and also charged with seditious conspiracy, weapons possession and transporting stolen vehicles across state lines.

No evidence was ever found tying López Rivera to any of the bombings, and although he was not convicted of any violent crimes, he was sentenced to 55 years in federal prison. Later, an additional 15 years were added to his sentence for an alleged escape attempt.

He is now the longest-incarcerated Puerto Rican political prisoner, currently serving 70 years, including 12 in solitary confinement, even though the UN has condemned solitary confinement in excess of 15 days as a violation of human rights.

However, although there’s a growing movement calling for López Rivera’s release, the US government has classified him as a terrorist.

Puerto Ricans Push Obama to Free Oscar Lopez Rivera, Independence Activist Jailed for 35 Years

~~Published on Dec 23, 2016~~

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition urging President Obama to grant clemency to Puerto Rican independence activist Oscar López Rivera, who has been imprisoned for about 35 years, much of the time in solitary confinement.

In 1981, López Rivera was convicted on federal charges, including seditious conspiracy – conspiring to oppose U.S. authority over Puerto Rico by force. In 1999, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, but López Rivera refused to accept the deal because it did not include two fellow activists, who have since been released.

We speak to Oscar’s brother José López Rivera and Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the New York City Council.

LIVING THE TRUMP WAY

The photo of a Trump Tower billboard above sleeping homeless children is real

Posted by Joe Vesey-Byrne in news

A photograph of the slum children of Mumbai sleeping beneath a billboard for Trump Tower went viral in early December.

Initially denounced as a fake on Reddit and Snopes.com, the photographer Paul Needham has since come forward.

Since Trump’s elevation to the international stage as president-elect, the juxtaposition becomes even more powerful than simply a hotel magnate and people in poverty.

When the image initially went viral, some doubted its veracity.

Needham has since spoken to indy100, and verified the image.

I was in Mumbai to meet a social impact investor. I run a company called Simpa Networks, Simpa Energy here in India. We provide solar energy solutions to farmers and small shops in rural India.
