Note To Social Media: Hillary Clinton Lost, Time To Regroup

Share

hillary-clintonOPINION – November 8th came and went, and the outcome of the Presidential Election shocked a lot of people, with Donald Trump winning the Presidency. I thought Hillary Clinton was going to win and the nation isn’t that silly to elect a failed businessperson who has filed for bankruptcy on numerous occasions. Also, a man who is a blatant sexist, shares xenophobic and racist views, has zero filter with no experience. to run the highest office in the Nation. Well, that proved to be wrong, and now we are faced with a Trump Presidency.

I did become excited that maybe, just maybe my Facebook social media feed would not be flapping their keyboard gums about Hillary Clinton any longer. That proved to be a false narrative; it has got worse.

The shaming of those who stated they didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton has reached a fever pitch. Not only are people crying about the outcome on social media, but the finger pointing has also taken center stage. The blaming of the 3rd party votes like Green Party Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson has now become the number one excuse as to why HRC lost the election. Folks seem to avoid talking about Jill Stein receiving votes, when Barack Obama won, but the key word is because he won and thus the complaints about 3rd party spoilers were muted. Voting for the Libertarian or Green Party is the norm, but HRC got walloped in key states, but that seem to escape one’s dialogue. The fact remains the same 55 plus million voters co-sign to Donald Trump, and that is a glaring statistic.

The fact that is also escaping so many, is that angry white voters didn’t gravitate toward HRC, they went with Trump instead (which includes women). Folks are also not taking into consideration that some Latinos, more than Mitt Romney received (33& Latino men & 26% Latino women) voted for Trump. This was the election of white nationalism, they also weren’t having a woman running the show as President, and they surely embraced Trump’s racial dog whistle politics. Furthermore, angry white voters gravitated toward a candidate that was not part of the establishment (in their mind), and that was only the tip of the iceberg of things to come as far as the results are concerned. There is no coincidence that 64% of white men voted for Trump, and 52% of white women voted for Trump.

HRC was a flawed candidate from the onset, with baggage that was so intense that it made a sanitation worker take a keen interest in disposing of it. What made matters worse is that the shenanigans that were on display concerning HRC’s campaign. Media personalities leaking debate questions, and among other things that didn’t sit well with people. What would also be part of HRC’s failed campaigned, was that she selected a boring running mate in Tim Kaine, who until this day was a drastic mistake. HRC’s campaign was designed to fail in the first place, the entitlement to the Presidency rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, and she became an unlikeable figure.

“They are saying they did nothing wrong, which is ridiculous,” said one Clinton surrogate. “She was the wrong messenger and everyone misjudged how pissed working class people were.”

The arrogance of the DNC was on full display because some people who supported her, felt that Clinton was entitled to the Presidency. When one evaluates this election, one would know that it was time for a Republican President to win the election. Eight years of a Democratic one, that goes unanswered is not part of history. More than likely a Republican President, would have won regardless, but someone like Trump winning says a lot about the nation.

So, let’s embrace the loss that HRC received and regroup, and understand that the DNC should start pushing more Progressive, young, new candidates and get rid of the business as usual politicians. Let’s stop blaming one entity and realize HRC lost and there is a lot of blame to go around, and the primary factor is she just wasn’t a great candidate. Time for more progressive candidates, if the DNC doesn’t push this then they are tone deaf, just like Howard Dean who wants to insert himself as the new DNC chair. The old Democrats need to take a seat and fade to Black. No one wants to see guys like Howard Dean, so it’s obvious the tone deafness continues to be the DNC’s mo and this means the Party will continue to lose.

To be honest, I’m am mentally exhausted from hearing about this election and its aftermath. The constant bickering is the worse I’ve seen on social media since I’ve signed up. It’s embarrassing how many voters, can’t understand how HRC lost and continued the blame game, by targeting a small group of Libertarians and Green Party candidates.  Instead of holding the Democratic Party accountable for attempting to co-sign a seriously flawed candidate in the first place. If Hillary Clinton didn’t win, it’s because of various factors and that includes Hillary Clinton herself. So, let’s re-group, push for more progressives candidates, no more centrist ideologies and realize old established Democrats can’t excite a paper bag with their business as usual agenda and need to exit stage left.

Trump & Clinton: It was All Good Just A Week Ago…

Trump and Hillary

OPINION-Last Friday night (3/11/16) was a great night for people who aren’t Donald Trump fans. For those who aren’t aware, that Trump decided to hold a rally in Chicago. When I first heard the Donald was going to Chicago my first thought was, he must be crazy.

I couldn’t believe Trump will hold a rally where the home of the late Fred Hampton – the Black Panther icon, was brutally murdered by Chicago Police. The same Chicago that is the home to one of the most corrupted police departments in the United States that has the historic history of terrorizing Blacks and Latinos. The same Chicago where politicians like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and one of the most corrupt Attorney Generals in Anita Alvarez rule over their oppress constituents. Is Trump going to show up in Chicago? Really?

Well then before Trump could show his orange face to the podium to begin his hate speech once again, a crowd of protestors from all angles and ethnicities weren’t having it. Scuffles broke out between supporters and protestors and Trump cowardly used the police department as a blanket to state he was cancelling his appearance. Trump told Don Lemon of CNN that the police didn’t think it was a good idea for him to make an appearance. Gee Donald, you think?

Other Presidential nominees (Cruz and Rubio) came out and suggested that Trump’s speeches have evoked violence at all of Trump’s rallies. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to go a different route, and told the media that the protestors should take a page out of the people who lost loved ones after the Charleston Church massacre, last year:

“The families of those victims came together and melted hearts in the statehouse and the Confederate flag came down,” Clinton said. “That should be the model we strive for to overcome painful divisions in our country.”

Let me get this straight and decode this language. Clinton is telling the north to be a good obedient negro like the south and turn the other cheek, and inherit the “we shall overcome” philosophy that the people in Charleston demonstrated after a despicable racist massacred a group of Black church goers. I guess another crazy one running for office, think we were going to let that slide. The backlash Clinton received for that comment was swift and all over social media. Of course, that statement wasn’t scaled back, and I know Clinton heard and read the backlash.

Clinton isn’t going to backtrack because I believe she has 0 respect for Black people just by her actions, but one continues to vote for her nevertheless and cape for her like she is a superhero. Where was Clinton’s comments after a Black man was punched, by that white Trump supporter as he was being escorted out by police, before the Chicago rally? Where was Clinton’s comment about families coming together when that white man pushed the Black woman at another one of Trump rallies? Hillary Clinton waited for when Chicago clearly was not having it, to decide to tell protestors that we should come together. One has to understand the code words and style Clinton is using, and she isn’t no better than Trump. Hillary Clinton is a sophisticated racist to me, and one’s actions speak volumes.

Before the comment about the Trump protestors, Hillary Clinton also praised the late Nancy Reagan for bringing AIDS awareness to the forefront (yes you heard it correctly):

“It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about H.I.V./AIDS back in the 1980s,” Mrs. Clinton, who was attending Mrs. Reagan’s funeral in Simi Valley, Calif., told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “And because of both President and Mrs. Reagan – in particular, Mrs. Reagan – we started a national conversation, when before nobody would talk about it. Nobody wanted anything to do with it.”

Clinton had to hurry up and do a verbal moonwalk to address her statement, about the Reagans and AIDS:

“While the Reagans were strong advocates for stem cell research and finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, I misspoke about their record on H.I.V. and AIDS,” she said in a statement about two hours after her interview had been shown on MSNBC. “For that, I’m sorry.”

Clinton’s apology was quick because she knows she upset so many people (the LBGT community) with that misinformation that she attempted to pass on as truth. To make sure Clinton was in the clear, she apologized twice. When Clinton was asked to apologize for that “super-predator” comment concerning Black men by a protestor, we still are waiting to hear it. Do Black people see the kind of respect she has for us? Clinton has none, because the South gave her 90% of the Black vote, so she is chilling. Let that sink in…

Clinton got caught attempting to re-write history again. This time, against her rival Senator Bernie Sanders when she was discussing her fight for health care reform:

During an event in St. Louis, Missouri, Clinton accused the senator from Vermont of being soft on healthcare reform before he made a single-payer system one of his main campaign promises.

“Where was he when I was trying to get healthcare in ’93 and ’94?” she asked a crowd of supporters.

Screen Shot 2016-03-14 at 8.44.10 AM

I guess Clinton forgot there was a picture of Sanders standing right behind her, during her speech on healthcare reform in the 90’s. Clinton seems to enjoy fibbing and getting caught while doing it. The internet can be a gift and curse and in this case, it worked in Sanders favor, just not in Clinton’s.

Now, let’s get back to Trump. He has to worry about watching his back (since one protestor tried to get to him in St. Louis). Trump is attempting to use the protestors as a means to rile up his fan based, and he has even said he will start pressing charges against demonstrators. Trump also hinted that he may pay the legal fees, of the white man who suckered punch the Black man at one of his rallies. Trump is like the Grand Wizard at a Klan rally, attempting to launch a race war.

“I love the old days, you know what they used to do to (protestors) like that when they get out of line? They’d be carried away on a stretcher folks.” – Donald Trump

I guess Trump means like they did to protestors in Kent State in 1970? Unfortunately, for Trump, not all states are having the Klan convention continue to go unchecked. Someone could eventually get seriously hurt; the conversation should be when will Trump get arrested for his inflammatory comments. If Trump’s speeches lead to severe violence as he appears to kick up his rhetoric a notch at each rally, who should shoulder the blame? Yes, there is such thing as free speech, but words have consequences.

Last week, wasn’t an excellent one for both Clinton and Trump. Trump has to watch his back going forward; the Secret Service may be around, but that doesn’t mean Trump is comfortable. Trump claimed he would have punched that protestor if he got near him, but from what I saw on the video, he looked like a scared puppy hiding behind the Secret Service to me. Whether Trump wants to admit it or not, Chicago shook him up, and I hope other cities will model what Chicago did when he enters their turf. As for Clinton her true colors were revealed a long time ago (she will say anything to get elected), and now she is on an apology tour (she just not apologizing to Black people). Oh boy, everything was all good just a week ago…

The Central Park Five: The Documentary

Share

NEW YORK – On April 19, 1989 at approximately 9:00P.M. investment banker Trisha Meilli, who was 28 at the time – was viciously robbed and raped in Central Park, where she went jogging. I remember this case like it was yesterday – it was one of the most notorious rape cases in recent memory.

5 Black and Latino teenage boys, who were around my age at the time, were rounded up, interrogated and confessed to the crime. There were some questionable police tactics that were used to obtain that confession, nevertheless. The suspects were interrogated for hours, even with their parents present. One has to consider, if a child is sitting in a police station, being interrogated for hours, tired, hungry, one may think confessing will finally get them to be able to go home. Unfortunately, that was not the case, 4 out of the 5 confessed and was charged. The police videotaped the confessions, but not the entire length on how long these young men were interrogated – more deceptive tactics by the NYPD.

The media played a huge role in intensifying the tensions in the city, and it became clear, they were demanding a public lynching of these young men. The media ring leader in all of this was the NY Post, and that shouldn’t be as a surprise to anyone.  Donald Trump even got involved, by paying for advertisement concerning this case, calling the five young men, animals. At least, we are aware Trump has always been a racist and is sticking to his tactics in the present, especially concerning the subject of the President, but I’ll digress. The media also ensure the names and addresses of the suspects were released. These young men were already convicted, before so called evidence was released to the pubic.

There was no DNA evidence linking any of these young men to the crime. The jury still convicted them anyway, based on the videotaped confessions alone. I’m sure the race of these young men, played an immense role in their convictions, as well.

The real rapist was Matias Reyes, who confessed to the crime – 12 years later – in 2001. Reyes DNA would match those left on the victim and the 5 young men, who are now adults were released a year later.

Barry Scheck, the director of the Innocence Project, assisted in the exoneration.

“It was standard operating procedure back then for police to get a confession, then begin a videotape,” Scheck said. Now, he continued, we know better: “Every interrogation should be videotaped.”
If this had been mandated [in 1989] they wouldn’t have been able to coerce those confessions from those juveniles,” said Scheck. “There is almost nothing more powerful that can go in front of the jury than a confession… hopefully jurors are becoming more knowledgeable that false confessions are something that happen.”

Every police officers worst case scenario is a citizen that knows their rights. It is essential to educate your children on what to do, when they find themselves in contact with the police.

This case caused so much racial divide in the city, but that was an everyday occurrence, and still continues to this day. The distrusting relationship between the NYPD and the Black and Latino community, has never gotten better since, in fact, it has got worse.  In looking back, concerning this case – I don’t blame minority youths for not trusting the police.

These five young men didn’t get a chance to go off to college, and have the opportunity to obtain a career, thereafter. That was taken from them by these overzealous cops who wanted to appease the public’s outcry for a lynching; because they felt these juveniles must have committed this heinous crime and wanted to hurry up and arrest them, primary because the victim was a white woman.

NYC Mayor Bloomberg refuses to settle the law suit, concerning the Central Park 5. The city is fighting for footage of the documentary that Ken Burns completed based on this case.  Bloomberg does not know the definition of doing the right thing, since part of his legacy would be the enhancement of the stop-and-frisk technique, against minority men who look like the Central Park Five. Why would this arrogant Mayor admit his police department during that time were incompetent and dishonest, as a matter of fact, a few of them are still incompetent and dishonest. Why would he attempt to settle a law suit, so that maybe these young men can go on with their lives? I guess that’s what we get when we don’t vote at all, right?

The Central Park Five were raised in the criminal justice system, that is all that they know. Many of them have been in and out of prison since their release, but one must understand, interacting with other people who have committed crimes for the duration of their early adult life, is part of their socialization.

I do believe in karma, whatever one puts in the universe is exactly what they get back out. Mike Sheenan the lead detective in this case, retired and became a Fox 5 news crime reporter. Sheehan was involved in a DUI, hitting a NYPD horse, in the process. Sheehan refused a breathalyzer test, was charged and subsequently fired from Fox 5. When these men were exonerated, Sheenhan was emphatically trying to say that they did not coerce them into a confession.

“All this stuff about coercion really pisses me off,” Sheehan says. “Do you honestly think that we — detectives with more than twenty years in, family men with pensions — would risk all of that so we could put words in the mouth of a 15-year-old kid? Absolutely not.”

Therefore, it gives me satisfaction that he was arrested and fired, even though he only received 5 days of community service. I would feel a lot better if these young men who are now in their 30’s, receive their justice, in a form of monetary payment. One thing that I know for sure, is that if one does not have money to obtain a reputable lawyer, one will be sucked into this bias criminal judicial system, and will have a hard time getting out of it, if truly innocent. The entire criminal justice system failed these young men, and now they are still facing, what we call invisible punishment.

A documentary called Central Park Five by director Sara Burns, will be released on November 19, 2012 at the Schomburg and opening November 23, at theaters in NYC. It will document this case in great detail. I encourage people to check this out and take any young minority men in their family along. The Central Park jogging case, and how these young men were treated will never be erased from my memory. I can only hope that when human justice on this earth fails, you best believe God prevails.

Osama Bin Laden Is Dead, But The Conspiracy Theorist Are Just Getting Started

Share

WASHINGTON – President Obama announced last night that the master mind behind the horrendous 9/11 terrorist attack; Osama Bin Laden was killed by US forces. According to the Associated Press one of his couriers was under surveillance which led to the intelligence of Bin Laden’s location. He was living in a multi-million dollar home with no cell phone or internet service. US forces raided his compound where he allegedly participated in a fire fight, and was subsequently killed alongside his son, and a woman who was used as a shield.

When the news broke, Twitter and Facebook were updated vigorously. The main discussion was that they did not believe a man who has been on the Most Wanted Terror List for so many years, all of a sudden was killed. I really do not care to get into the conspiracy theories concerning these events, even though I am a vast conspiracy theorist myself. The reason being is because my President announced something that former President George W. Bush could not do, and that was the demise of one of the leaders of Al-Qaeda. Our President has been taking a beating by the Tea Party, GOP, and guys like Donald Trump for quite some time now. It was so bad he even had to stop important matters, and address the birther issue at a press conference. He show the world a long form of his birth certificate, which would have never happened under any other President in our life time. The  fact that he gets credit for this news, and it happen under his Presidency brings a smile to my face.

Now let’s get back to Bin Laden. Just because, this man is dead does not mean terrorism is now over, and we can go to sleep now without a care in the word. Bin Laden is nothing more than a symbol of terror; it is bigger than him and it will always be. Its like a drug dealer, when one is incarcerated or killed you can rest assure there will be another one in his place to finish what the previous person already started; this applies to terrorism. I’m sure there are sleeper cells in the United States as we speak waiting for orders to inflict terror upon us, so I hope this news does not make us complacent. The one thing we could have done without was dancing in the street, but that is just me. Lets expect other terrorist leaders who will use his death to push their agenda against America. It is real out there, and there are many people just like Bin Laden who want nothing more than to hurt Americans.

This news also gives our President added momentum along with that ribbing he gave Donald. The GOP can now stop with the soft on terror label they have given him, since he initially ordered the mission. Unless you work for the CIA, you will not know whether all the facts are indeed true. Of course like a friend of my on Twitter stated, I’m sure the Donald is going to ask the President for Bin Laden’s death certificate as proof to pander to all you conspiracy theorist out there. The conspiracy will get even worse more than ever now that they have reported that he has been buried out to sea, which is in accordance with Islamic tradition. I anticipate a real interesting dialogue among friends this week, regarding this matter nevertheless. I for one is not celebrating Bin Laden’s death. I am celebrating at the fact that the victims families of 9/11 finally received some sort of closure, and the people who bared witness to one of the most horrific terrorist attacks in our history. This news is historic it also gives our President some of that extra swag. There is nothing anyone can do about it; not even the conspiracy theorist.

Here is a quote from our former President: “I don’t know where Bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” — George W. Bush. Good thing our current President cared enough to still make him a priority. Too bad we will never know the names of the elite forces who led this operation, but their heroism is greatly appreciated. In case you missed it, here is President Obama’s announcement on the death of the man who is the symbol of terror:

President Obama and Seth Meyer Have A Field Day At Trump’s Expense

Share

WASHINGTON- I’m sure many of you saw the White House Correspondents Dinner. If you are not aware this is where Presidents get the opportunity to showcase their comedic side, and others also join in as far as roasting goes. Many highlights to this event took place. Three of the biggest is the fact that President Obama took Donald Trump to town, Seth Meyer’s finish the job. 😆 I do not think in my lifetime that a sitting President could pull off such a comedic routine with so much ease as this current President has demonstrated. Trump’s entire body language was stoic. He is probably aware that the tables have now officially turned, and the joke is now on him. In my honest opinion, Donald hurt his brand and his true colors were revealed as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It serves him right, so now after this beating maybe he will finally admit he is not running and go way, and we can get back to business.  Here, are a few highlights of the jokes:

  • President Obama opens up his speech with the following “Hello my fellow Americans”.
  • President Obama: “I am a real American” with the birth certificate flashing on screen.
  • Obama shows “birth video” — clip from Lion King, and the audience burst into laughter.
  • President Obama: “Matt Damon said he was disappointed in my performance. Well, Matt, I just saw The Adjustment Bureau. So, right back at cha, buddy.”
  • President Obama: “Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate to rest than The Donald. Now he can get to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened at Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?”
  • Seth Meyers: “Trump said he has a great relationship with the Blacks but unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken.”
  • Seth Meyers: “Trump Running For President Is Excellent For SNL, Not Good For Anyone Else.”
  • Seth Meyers: “Donald Trump has said he’s running for president as a Republican — which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke. “
  • Seth Meyers: “Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president.”
  • Seth Meyers: President Obama: “I’ll tell you who could beat you: 2008 Barack Obama. You would have loved him.
  • Seth Meyers: President Obama: “If your hair gets any whiter, the tea party is going to endorse it.”

Last but not least Trump unwittingly autograph a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate for Katie Jacobs Stanton who is the head of International Strategy at Twitter. Before she took the job at Twitter she was President Obama’s Director of Citizen Participation. Talk about a strategy that set Twitter on fire. 😆  Check out the picture, and the video of the Correspondent dinner below, and enjoy.
