WHITE INVADERS

~Native Americans and the Federal Government~

At the start of the twentieth century there were approximately 250,000 Native Americans in the USA – just 0.3 per cent of the population – most living on reservations where they exercised a limited degree of self-government.

During the course of the nineteenth century they had been deprived of much of their land by forced removal westwards, by a succession of treaties (which were often not honored by the white authorities) and by military defeat by the USA as it expanded its control over the American West.

In 1831 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall, had attempted to define their status. He declared that Indian tribes were ‘domestic dependent nations’ whose ‘relation to the United States resembles that of a ward to his guardian’. Marshall was, in effect, recognizing that America’s Indians are unique in that, unlike any other minority, they are both separate nations and part of the United States.

This helps to explain why relations between the federal government and the Native Americans have been so troubled.

bline

A guardian prepares his ward for adult independence, and so Marshall’s judgement implies that US policy should aim to assimilate Native Americans into mainstream US culture. But a guardian also protects and nurtures a ward until adulthood is achieved, and therefore Marshall also suggests that the federal government has a special obligation to care for its Native American population.

As a result, federal policy towards Native Americans has lurched back and forth, sometimes aiming for assimilation and, at other times, recognizing its responsibility for assisting Indian development.

… and it continues to this day!!

DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

redlineb

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

polusa
Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”

Thoughts for today, #405 …. “Real Deep Consideration …. the future is at stake … “!!

REPLACING A PRESIDENT

There are so many other quotes to choose from.

I chose these three because they seem to resonate, in my humble opinion, with some of the many topics that always should be under consideration when governing any country.

Military spending, social well-being, permanent state of war, equality for all citizens, discouraging hate and violence, represent all citizens, repairing broken “systems”: education, health, finance.

I’m very much aware that there are many other considerations.

These are only a few.

The welfare of the nation and the world is paramount.

Deep thinking is needed.

Everyone’s future is at stake.

DISCLAIMER

This is all my personal opinion.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Is there no other way the world may live?”

“It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began. For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.

Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

~Barack Obama~

“The greatness comes not when things go always good for you, but the greatness comes when you are really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes; because only if you’ve been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

Always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember: Others may hate you.

But those who hate you don’t win, unless you hate them. And then, you destroy yourself.”

RAPE CULTURE 

Brock Turner only spent 3 months in jail because Judge Persky cared more about his future than justice for the survivor.

To defeat #rapeculture we must understand it.

Sources

BLine

In feminist theory, rape culture is a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. There is disagreement over what defines rape culture and as to whether any societies currently meet the criteria for a rape culture.

Behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm caused by some forms of sexual violence, or some combination of these.

The notion of rape culture has been used to describe and explain behavior within social groups, including prison rape, and in conflict areas where war rape is used as psychological warfare.

Entire societies have been alleged to be rape cultures.

Evidence suggests that rape culture is correlated with other social factors and behaviors. Rape myths, victim blaming, and trivialization of rape have been found to be positively correlated with racism, sexism,homophobia, ageism, classism, religious intolerance, and other forms of discrimination.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. “The Young Lords …. Chicago …. “!!

~~September 9, 2016~~ 

THE YOUNG LORDS

Many real life Puerto Rican heroes like the Young Lords Party fought for social justice and inspired Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez to create La Borinqueña.

(http://palante.org/Documentary.htm)

redlineb

The Young Lords began as a Puerto Rican turf gang in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago in the fall of 1960 and as a civil and human rights movement on Grito de Lares, September 23, 1868.

During Mayor Daley’s tenure, Puerto Ricans in Lincoln Park (the first hub of Puerto Ricans in Chicago) and several Mexican communities were completely evicted from areas near the Loop, lakefront, Old Town, Lakeview and Lincoln Park, in order to increase property tax revenues.

When they realized that urban renewal was evicting their families from their barrios and witnessed police abuses, some Puerto Ricans became involved in the June 1966 Division Street Riots in Wicker Park and Humboldt Park.

They were officially reorganized from the gang into a civil and human rights movement by Jose Cha Cha Jimenez, who was the last president of the former gang and became the founder of the new Young Lords Movement.

Puerto Rican self-determination and the displacement of Puerto Ricans and poor residents from prime real estate areas for profit became the primary focus of the original movement. Since there were few Latino students and no outspoken leadership at the time, the former street-gang transformed themselves, training leadership and organizing the broad community.

The Dakota Access Pipeline has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.

Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! producers were on the ground Saturday, September 3,  when the pipeline company attacked Native American protesters with dogs and pepper spray.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe filed evidence Friday that the proposed Dakota Access pipeline route falls directly on sacred Sioux sites.

Hours later, Goodman and Democracy Now! producers witnessed unexpected construction at one of the sites.

“This was a Labor Day weekend.

The bulldozers don’t work on the weekend,” Goodman tells Joy-Ann Reid.

“But this weekend, the day after they gave over that information, they’re there bulldozing over those sites.”

ARIZONA LATINO VOTE 

Rachel discussed the fact that 31% of the Arizona population is Latino.

AZ is a deeply red state which has the potential of become blue in 2016.

There’s a local movement intensely trying to register locals in time to be able to vote for the Presidential elections come November 8.

Rachel explained the situation and interviewed Francisco Heredia.

Take a look at the TV ad which has been airing locally.

It’s an effort of many television personalities, who have put aside their differences and competing TV stations.

All with the purpose of activating registration of the Latino vote.

New Spanish-language TV ad in Arizona designed to boost Hispanic voter registration

A first-of-its-kind media campaign launches in Arizona on Wednesday, August 31, in hopes of boosting Hispanic voter registration to historic highs

A new public service announcement co-produced by the state’s largest Spanish-language television and radio stations is set to air roughly 2,500 times through Election Day on Univision and Telemundo television stations and will feature DJ’s and talk show hosts from some of the state’s most popular Spanish-language radio stations, according to organizers.

The campaign is the brainchild of Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan voter registration group that is seeking to register roughly 95,000 new Latino voters in six states this year.

While volunteers are rounding up new registrants in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Texas, Arizona is seen as the crown jewel of the effort this year.

That’s because no other state has been on the front lines of the years-long immigration policy fights and Hispanic leaders are eager to demonstrate their community’s growing political clout in the state.

No matter how a new voter registers, Mi Familia Vota is hoping to boost the numbers with its new ad campaign, which stars Spanish-language television and radio news anchors and morning talk show hosts. 

The ad begins with anchors asking whether the viewer is 18 or older and registered to vote. It reminds the viewer that voter registration continues in Arizona through Oct. 10.

Lat

“We are extremely proud of our Latino media partners,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota. “They are making history in an already historic election by continuing to help build political power for the Latino community.”

The campaign is backed by Azteca America; the Phoenix and Tucson affiliates of Univision and Telemundo; Univision-owned radio stations Que Buena 105.9 FM, Mas Variedad 106.3 FM and Latino Mix 100.3 FM; Contacto Total, a Phoenix-area radio station; stations owned by Entravision Radio, including La Tricolor 103.5 FM, Jose 106.9 and 107.1 FM & ESPN 710 AM; Mary Rabago Productions LLC; Mujeres Unicas LLC; Onda 1190-AM; Prensa Hispana; Teleritmo; and UniMás Arizona.

CONFIRMED

Colin Kaepernick will sit again during tonight’s National Anthem

Here’s what I know – he will likely sit alone.

In fact, I doubt one player will ever join him in this, but what I do know is this …

MILLIONS of Americans will be joining him in spirit as we protest injustice in this nation.

I, for one, will never stand again for that damn anthem.

Jackie Robinson made the same commitment.

It is based on a lie and written by a bigoted slaveholding man who originally celebrated the murder of slaves in the song itself.

I pass.

Always.

Thoughts for today, #389 …. “The. Gay. Agenda. …. “!!


GayA

~~August 9, 2016~~ 

DISPARAGING DESCRIPTION

Looks familiar?

Homosexual agenda (or gay agenda) is a term introduced by sectors of the Christian right (primarily in the United States) as a disparaging way to describe the advocacy of cultural acceptance and normalization of non-heterosexual orientations and relationships.

The term refers to efforts to change government policies and laws on LGBT rights-related issues.

Additionally, it may be used by social conservatives and others to describe alleged goals of LGBT rights activists, such as recruiting heterosexuals into what they term a “homosexual lifestyle”.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexual_agenda

RBLine

To those who know, who belong to the LGBT community, this is a load of crap.

There’s no one in the community trying to “spread the word” or recruit others to become part of the “exclusive LGBTQ community”.

It’s a term made up to insult, isolate and disparage a group of citizens.

“term introduced by sectors of the Christian right (primarily in the United States)” … 

Mainly in America!
