'White supremacists by default': How ordinary people made Charlottesville possible

No. 1: The 'down-low' segregationists

Many of the white racists who marched in Charlottesville were condemned No. 4: Those who look the other way
Ari Kohen knows something about the cost of hate. When he looked at images of neo-Nazis chanting "Jews will not replace us!" in Charlottesville, he thought of his grandfather, Zalman Kohen. He was living in rural Romania in 1944 when the Nazis rounded him up with the help of his neighbors and sent him to a death camp.because they openly said they don't believe in integration or racial equality.

But millions of ordinary white Americans have been sending that message to black and brown people for at least a half a century.

No. 2: Those who say 'yes, but...'

President Trump's critics blasted him for not coming out strong enough against the white racists who marched in Charlottesville. Trump initially denounced the "egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides." It was the "many sides" qualifier that infuriated some people. They wanted an unequivocal denunciation of racism from a leader.

No. 3: Those who choose chaos

There's a famous line from the classic film, "Casablanca." A police officer is closing down a casino, declaring, "I'm shocked -- shocked -- to find that gambling is going on in here!" -- all while pocketing his casino winnings as they're being handed to him on the sly.

Train derails in northern India, killing at least 23

Train derails in northern India, killing at least 23
LUCKNOW, India — Six coaches of a passenger train derailed in

northern India on Saturday,

killing 23 people and injuring at

least 81,

officials said. Two of the coaches telescoped into each other,

while four others toppled over after going off the track, said Arvind Kumar, a top official in Uttar Pradesh, the state where the derailment occurred.

Neeraj Sharma, a railway spokesman, said the incident

took place near the small town of Khatauli.

The cause of the derailment was not immediately

known, Sharma said. Railway police and local volunteers helped

pull passengers

out of the upturned coaches of the Kalinga-Utkal Express,

which connects the Hindu holy city of Haridwar

with the temple town of Puri, in the eastern state of Orissa.

The injured were taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors described their condition as stable.








Russia knife attacker wounds seven in Surgut

Seven people have been wounded in a knife attack in the Russian city of Seven people have been wounded in a knife attack in the Russian city of Surgut, security sources say.
Surgut, security sources say. The man,

who apparently stabbed passers-by on

the street at random, was shot dead by police.

The injured have been taken to hospital, where

two are in a

critical condition, the state-owned RIA Novosti news agency reports.

The Islamic State militant group (IS) said on its

official news channel that it was behind the attack.

Russia's Investigations Committee said it had identified the attacker and

was checking his psychological history.

The attacker was a local resident born in 1994,

it said.

A spokeswoman for the committee told Reuters news agency she would

not comment on the possibility of terrorist motives,

calling the attack "attempted murder".

The attack happened at about 11:20 local time (06:20 GMT). An earlier statement said eight people had been wounded, but that was later revised to seven. Surgut, about 2,100km (1,300 miles) east of Moscow in the Khanty-Mansiysk area of Siberia, has a population of more than 350,000.








GOP senator: 'It feels like violence is coming'

A GOP senator on Friday evening warned that "it feels like violence is GOP senator: 'It feels like violence is coming'coming" and the president won't be able to calm the nation in the face of it.

In an extensive Facebook post, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) shared thoughts he said were prompted by the violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Va., that left three dead and multiple injured.

He unloaded on President Trump and his administration over the response to the incident, which Sasse called out as motivated by white supremacists. Sasse charged that some of Trump's closest advisers see racial division as an opportunity.

However, he also blamed misunderstandings — some deliberate — on both sides of the aisle and argued that the current national debate should not be "a fight about historical monuments." Many state and local governments are taking steps to remove Confederate statues in the wake of the Charlottesville violence, which was originally organized to oppose the removal of a Gen. Robert E. Lee statue there.








Thousands take to streets in Boston protest against hate speech

BOSTON, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Thousands of people in Boston protested a "Free Speech" rally featuring right-wing speakers on Saturday, with hundreds of police mobilized to prevent a recurrence of violence that left a woman dead at a Virginia white-supremacist protest last week. In historic Boston Common park alone, hundreds of protesters who believe the event could become a platform for racist propaganda dwarfed the few dozen rally participants. The number of protesters was poised to swell exponen

tially as a march with thousands more people bore down on the park. Some 500 police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park, the nation's oldest.

Last weekend's clashes in Charlot

tesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed in a car rampage after bloody street battles, ratcheted up racial tensions already inflamed by white supremacist groups marching more openly in rallies across the United States. White nationalists had converged in the Southern university city to defend a statue of Robert E. Lee, who led the pro-slavery Confederacy's army during the Civil War, which ended in 1865.     A growing number of U.S. political leaders have called for the removal of statues honoring the Confederacy, with civil rights activists charging that they promote racism. Advocates of the statues contend they are a reminder of their heritage.

Turkey's Erdogan says German leaders are enemies

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called Germany's ruling politicians "enemies of Turkey" who deserve to be rejected by German-Turkish voters. Germany will hold a general election on 24 September, and about one million ethnic Turks living in Germany can vote. A majority of them backed Mr Erdogan in an April referendum. "The Christian Democrats [CDU], SPD [Social Democrats], the Green Party are all enemies of Turkey," he said. German ministers protested angrily. Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Mr Erdogan's comments were an "unprecedented" act of interference in Germany's sovereignty.

Mr Erdogan has lashed out at Germany before, yet the two countries are major trade partners and allies in Nato. He was furious that the German government refused to let some of his allies campaign for him in Germany before the April vote, which paved the way for him to get sweeping new executive powers. That refusal, he said, was "Nazi-style" behaviour.











In Barcelona, five minutes of 'pure panic' and 'absolute terror'

BARCELONA — It was another mellow summer afternoon on a world-In Barcelona, five minutes of 'pure panic' and 'absolute terror' renowned boulevard, a site of teeming crowds and bustling cafés. Then there was a flash of white. A rented Fiat van swung onto La Rambla, a broad, tree-lined pedestrian thoroughfare, and the driver pressed down hard on the gas. Almost immediately, he began to maim and kill. “The van was just plowing down people,” said Carlos Tena, 34, a native of the city who was leaving work with two colleagues.

He watched as the van streaked by, “zigzagging right and left,” and then he saw what the driver was leaving in his path. “I saw a little boy, in really, really bad shape, just lying there with his mother. He was not moving. His mother asked me with her eyes if I could help,” Tena said. “My heart split in two,” he said.

“I still don’t understand what I saw.” He said he did not know the boy’s fate.

The attack on Las Ramblas, as the district featuring Barcelona’s scenic, Belle Époque promenade is known, was the worst terrorist attack in Spain since March 2004, when 192 people were killed and nearly 2,000 were injured in a coordinated series of bombings on the Madrid rail system.









Confederate removal fight extends to KKK birthplace Stone Mountain

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- There's no bigger monument to the Confederate removal fight extends to KKK birthplace Stone Mountain Confederacy than a towering sculpture carved into the side of Stone Mountain, outside Atlanta. The carving of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson is larger than Mount Rushmore. Edward Williams has lived near it for almost 20 years. When he looks at the sculpture, he says he feels that "the war continues."

Though no battles were fought there, it's a tourist attraction that even includes a laser light show. But the mountain is also considered the symbolic birthplace of the modern Ku Klux Klan, which had gathered there since 1915.

In 2015, white supremacists rallied there and clashed with counter-protesters. It's why Williams and others have now started petitions to remove or alter the monument. "These images are individuals that lost a war, that wanted to maintain slavery, that wanted to maintain a way of life that excluded my people and other minorities," Williams said. But it's a complicated issue. One unlikely voice for moving past the monuments debate is civil rights icon and former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young. "I think it's too costly to re-fight the Civil War. We have paid too great a price in trying to bring people together," Young said.










Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement: Activists seek peace through violence

(CNN)On the morning of Donald Trump's inauguration, Keval Bhatt hunted Unmasking the leftist Antifa movement: Activists seek peace through violencethrough a closet in his parents' Virginia home for the darkest clothes he could find. The 19-year-old didn't own much in black, the color he knew his fellow protesters would wear head to toe on the streets of Washington that day. As Bhatt drove into the city for his first-ever protest, he hesitated. "I thought, there's a very good chance that I might get arrested, that my whole life could be radically altered in a negative way if I kept driving, and I was really close to turning around," Bhatt told CNN. "But I think the rationale is that even if it did negatively affect my life, I had still contributed to this movement that was necessary. I was still making an effort to make other people's lives better, even if it made my life worse, and once I realized that, I had no regrets." Bhatt joined protesters dressed completely in black, some with their faces covered by masks -- a tactic known as "black bloc" that aims to unify demonstrators' efforts and hide their identities. And with them, Bhatt got arrested.

He was rounded up with more than 200 other people and charged with a felony for inciting a riot.







After violence in Virginia, far right targets California

LOS ANGELES _ When far-right activist Kyle Chapman took to Facebook "Talk about kicking the hornets nest! This is sure to be barn burner," wrote Chapman, who became a hero to the extreme-right and earned the nickname "Based Stickman" when he battled counterprotesters with a shield and staff this year. "Let's show these intolerant Communists we will not be silenced or intimidated!"last week urging followers to attend upcoming rallies in the Bay Area

, he was downright gleeful about taking the fight to the celebrated liberal bastion. "Talk about kicking the hornets nest!

This is sure to be barn burner," wrote Chapman, who became a hero to the extreme-right and earned the nickname "Based Stickman" when he battled counterprotesters with a shield and staff

this year.

"Let's show these intolerant Communists we will not be silenced or intimidated!"


multicultural California might not seem like an ideal place for the extreme-right and white-nationalist groups to make a stand.

But the movement has increasingly targeted the state in recent years,

with optics as much as membership in mind.

Seeking media attention and validation for their "us vs. the world" narrative, far-right activists find desired attention and conflict in California, leading to clashes that often end in blood and bruises, experts say.

Some of the biggest clashes have been in Berkeley, where a swath of far-right combatants including ardent supporters of President Donald Trump

and avowed white nationalists have engaged in rolling street brawls with

masked anti-fascists and anarchists who also see violence as the only way to defeat their rivals.

In the wake of violence in Charlottesville, Va., that left one woman dead and sparked furious debate

about the limits of free speech and the need to condemn white supremacists,

some of these groups are again turning to California, to the dismay of some local officials.

"I don't think it's an accident that Berkeley is being targeted. The home of the free speech movement. The home of liberalism in academia.








Barcelona van attack kills 13 in agonizing repeat for Europe

Barcelona van attack kills 13 in agonizing repeat for Europe







American Hate, a History

The message was clear. The fate of America–or at least of white America, which was the only America that counted–was at stake. On the autumn evening of Thursday, Oct. 7, 1948, South Carolina Governor Strom Thurmond, the segregationist Dixiecrat nominee for President, addressed a crowd of 1,000 inside the University of Virginia’s Cabell Hall in Charlottesville, Va. Attacking President Truman’s civil rights program, one that included anti-lynching legislation and protections against racial discrimination in hiring, Thurmond denounced these moves toward racial justice, saying such measures “would undermine the American way of life and outrage the Bill of Rights.”


Trump pushes debunked 'pig's blood' myth, hours after Barcelona attack

US President Donald Trump has invoked a debunked myth about a general who fought Islamist militants by using pig's blood to commit mass executions.    The president's tweet came hours after a driver crashed a van into a crowd of people in Barcelona, leaving many dead or injured. "Study what General Pershing... did to terrorists when caught," Mr Trump said, referring to the discredited story.

Republicans Sued for ‘Racketeering’ Over Trumpcare’s Failure

Making Promise Known UN-Capable of Fulfilling

7 Years of describing ObamaCare as flawed, and colluding with all Republicans..., to remove ObamaCare from existence....

a promise, and a statement, that never had any validity,

yet, a promise that provided the only actual position for the entire republican party for 7 plus years...


Republicans Never had a plan, Never had an option, Never had anything different, other than, simply standing against a thing that help millions...


Republicans Suck the Blood out of worshipers,

used their enthusiasm to make loads of money, and now that republicans are in charged of everything, they can't even build a quality health care package... to replace the "ObamaCare" that they have been railing against to 8 plus years...

Republicans have been "Used & Fooled" by every republican elected official for 8 years, and it is the epitome of what is described as


that has cost "$Millions" of good dollars that could have gone to a good health care program had republicans not lied for years...

just to get you republican fools to vote for them.










Officers spotted sleeping in police car sparks investigation

Sleeping on the Job... "FIRED"

In what job in America, can you, with nothing more than a

Officers spotted sleeping in police car sparks investigation "high school education", be hired to do a job, get a short 4 weeks of paid training, be awarded a graduation certification in law enforcement, get a badge that catapults your status above all other citizens, be given a gun and authorized to kill a citizen based on your individual fear of what "might" happen to you when your interacting with any citizen...

Additionally, if your in a shooting that appears to show you..., obviously killing a innocent citizen..., you are given the legal protection equal to the Governor of your state "for free", paid for by the same citizen and his/her family..., with their taxes for the city and state you live in.

Here in America, the standards for hiring a Police Officer, has always been "Sub Par" as compared to jobs such as,

store manager, bartender, plumber, Barber, Beautician, Nail Professional, and other jobs that require mental capacity and certifications.

Yet, the Police Officer, worshiped in movies as the hero, has ignored the true daily reality of what a daily cop is....

Police push back against Trump's law-and-order speech

Incitement "Is" a "Criminal Act", and it happens

The most famous representation of the act of an instance of using words that can cause harm is the description of the case of;

"Screaming  "FIRE" in a crowded theater",

with the resulting action of people storming out of the theater, causing many to be trampled by the rush.

Several times during the republican national campaign, and during the presidential race, Trump has used words that has caused individuals to attack others in the crowd, and to this day, one of such individuals initiated a law suit against Trump for his legal fees, specifically because Trump said that he would pay the legal fees for anyone who find themselves in the courts... after carrying out the physical attacks,

mentioned by Trump.

There is absolutely no acceptable excuse for the comments made by Trump, in front of Police Officers, and the world.

Trump is a prime example of how specific people in this nation.... are not held accountable for their flawed acts, and actions.

Trump is a prime example of how our elected leaders are inept at enforcing rules and laws..., when acts and actions are carried out by those who were "elected" by citizens...,

to act on the behalf of American Citizens.








Video shows U.S. border officers telling Mexican teen to drink the liquid meth that killed him

Criminal & Unconscionable Act of Ignorance

There is absolutely no excuse, for acts and actions, by anyone representing any level of official authority, to include

"Police Officers, Boarder Patrol Agents, or ICE Agents",

who do things that harm any citizen... of any nation.

Human Behavior is at fault, when a representative of any legal authority conducts interactions that could be construed as "Abusive, Harmful, or Criminal", and as we continue to see the many flaws in "Human Behavior" displayed on video in these legally authorized representatives, we don't see any reasonable attempts at addressing the "Flawed Human Behavior" that continue to cause physical, emotional, and psychological harm to citizens who don't have a badge, and who are not representative of any legal authority.

Training..., or lack there of,

Education..., or lack there of,

are not acceptable responses to the hundreds of acts and actions caught on video, that clearly show

"blatant criminal behavior", or "callousness of no concern for the citizen"... when we view the actual acts taking place on video.

The solution has cost the citizens $Millions of tax payers money, that could have gone to bettering the editorial facilities of hundreds of schools,

but these valuable funds end up going in the pockets of expensive "lawyers"... then, the innocent victims, after years of legal wrangling over obvious wrong committed by the representative of the legal system.

$Millions of dollars... waisted because of poor leadership and poorly educated leaders... who are not removed when these callous and reckless behavior go un addressed.

This failed system of accountability is costing $Millions simply because of failed leadership.








ICE Set to Deport College-Bound Soccer Star, Brother

America, the land of the Heartless

There once was a beautiful land that spread from one Lizandro Claros Saravia, 19, played soccer for Bethesda (Maryland) Soccer Club and was planning on attending college in the fall on a partial soccer scholarship in North Carolina. His brother Diego, 22, planned to accompany him and work to continue to help his brother pay his college costs. great sea to another, filled with mountains that seemed to be made specifically for the gods, and there were rivers stretching vertically..., top to bottom of the great land, ensuring that all areas of the land, receives good water to grow crops and

quench the thirst of live stock.

This land had its original dwellers, who respected the land and opened their doors to the visitors...,

who were ignorant in the ways to survive in these strange new lands...

that were not like any place the visitors had ever seen.

The Visitors were running from the evil ones who used dictatorship power to cage the minds, and the hearts of the citizens, but, in the new land, the strangers found a new type of calm.

However, after 525 years, the visitors became the invading evil..., they stole the new land from the originals ones...,

drove them into the small and worse corners of the land,

killed those who refused to be pushed off their lands, made new laws that abuse any new comers to the land. Today, the new comers

are turning away those who wish to come to the once "new and vibrant land", and throwing out the descendants of the original owners of these lands.

Evil never left the new comers original lands,

it only migrated to these great lands like a virus,

destroying everything..., and every human being

in it's path.








Oldest Surviving Tuskegee Airman, 102, Talks Racial Discrimination: 'It Hasn’t Stopped'

Value individual Life Experiences and Knowledge

“We proved all those years ago that black men and women weren’t dummies, we showed the nation that we are capable of doing a job and doing it well, but racism — it just hasn’t stopped. When one has lived long enough to be able to speak about the ways of the world that existed more than 50 plus ago,

one has valuable and measurable knowledge and experience.

Living thru a time of life, when one is hated specifically because of the color of his/her skin,

Living thru a time when one is denied basic human rights to seek employment that would allow one to raise a family,

Living during a time of life when one's own government denied the individual equal justice, equal dwelling, and equal education,

provides the types of experience that the entire world ought to desire to hear described from the first person.

Two sides to every story, and in this instance, there are those who lived 50 years ago, who were the individuals who reaped the benefits of living a life without the constraints mentioned above, and these individual's speaking to the life during those times...

beside the ones who live that same life 50years ago, who were denied the basic rights of life,

will tell the stories of two totally different life experiences.

Which of the two life experiences would cause your heart to stir... will depend on which of the life's stories you would be willing to "understand".








Republican blames women senators for 'repugnant' health bill woes

Poor Character in Leadership seems to the "Standard"

We have failed to vote for people "with great character", in stead, Blake Farenthold, a congressman from Texas, told a local radio station if a man were responsible, he would challenge him to a duel.

Susan Collins of Maine was one of three female Republicans who said they could not back the Senate's healthcare plan.we have voted to people of piss poor character, those who view the position of a leader...

"as their personal position to make the types of decisions that make them happy as an individual".

Representing a "Constituency" isn't part of their concerns,

Representing a County or City isn't part of their concerns,

Representing "Human Beings" isn't part of their thoughts.

Content of Character

speaks to the individual's behavior, decisions processes, and individual actions.

We have blindly voted for people who have no value and they behave and speak words that indicate that these individuals are completely empty and they don't even care.








Trump mocks TV host Mika Brzezinski's 'bleeding facelift' 6/29/17


Your Willingness to Ignore

Flawed Behavior

will lead to the degradation

of this Nation


Adolph Hitler,
also, spoke specifically to those who viewed Germany from his perspective, and those who did not agree with him, kept their mouth shut,
as Hitler's wave of hate, fueled the fire of the under layer of racism
spread like wild fire, all across Germany,
and the rest is history.


We are all Human Beings,
years before we accept the label of
"Anything Else, Anyone Else, or Anything But".


Daily, we,
see other's in pain, not physical, emotional or psychological pain,
... the simple pain of "struggle" to smile because the individual works to survive, and not work to get the higher quality of things
that one could allow one to feel a sense of "accomplishment",
or feel a sense of...
human dignity when arriving home
from a honest day of work.


We are now Prey for those like Trump,
We are now Prey of those who serve Trump,
We are now the prize, and our loss of dignity,

leads to a win
for anyone and everyone who believes in
dictating to others..., and dominating others.


I Say... "NO"


Trump's followers who ignore his lack of professionalism,
and make excuses for his flawed acts and actions like subservient parasites,
as if his behavior is acceptable while his acts or actions,
do not currently negatively affect you and your life, will
eventually learned a long and harsh lesson that flawed people
will eventually turn against those whom worship him/her...
and they will feel the pain that other's have suffered, yet, it will be their screams that ring ten times louder and reach
"No Ears of Compassion".

Minneapolis Police Chief Resigns After Fatal Shooting 7/22/17


The Heat Rises when a

White Woman is Killed



The First Layer of the Defense of the
Justice System


With each instance of a "Police Shooting" that appears to be a questionable, or of poor judgement,
immediately, the "Justice System" goes into protective mode by initiating a campaigne of protectionism against those that where the badge.

The Defense System of the Justice Enterprise inital wave of protection begins with the carefully crafted rule that protects the officers in question, by allowing the officers
"the right to not be required to provide a description of the event",
immediately after the event.


The 3rd Layer of the Defense of the Justice System


The 3rd layer of the Justice System Defense is the initiation of the releasing of demeaning information about the individuals who are part of the event, by disciminating any sorted or negative information about the individual or individuals past, thereby..., sewing the seed of conscious poison assoicated with the individual's value.

The Character Assassination is the purposeful preperations for any possible future trial that may take place, which provides the foundation for the in trial guarantees that the officers in question do not have any negative couscious seeds planted in the minds of possible jurrors, while the negative planted information about the individuals remains the sole thoughts between the two parties.


The 5th Layer of the Defense of the Justice System


The 5th layer of the Justice System Defense is the fact that it is the citizens themselves, who pay for the staff of
"Defense Lawyers" provided to the officers involved in these events that take innocent lives, at no charge to the officers.

The most significant aspect of the entire Justice System is the factor of "funding" used to pay for a "Lawyer" to represent the American Citizens, and 99% of all events between the American Citizens and the Entire Jutice Enterprise, collapse long before trail primarily due to the lack of affordable and knowledgable legal representation for the American Citizen who must fund their own defense.

Colin Kaepernick Protest Items Shown in Smithsonian Black Lives Matter Exhibit

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History will feature items relating to Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest as part of its Black Lives Matter collection.

"The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection," the museum's sports curator, Damion Thomas, told USA Today's A.J. Perez on Friday.

"The Colin Kaepernick collection is in line with the museum's larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement."

In May, sports sociologist and civil rights activist Harry Edwards told USA Today's Jarrett Bell he had worked to acquire pieces of Kaepernick memorabilia to donate to the museum for a future exhibit.

presented in any manner
is useful information.


Mental Stamina
is the understanding
that it takes

1 second to be 1 second
to understand that...
it takes 10 thousand seconds
to read, and understand...

something that adds value
to your mental database...
an action that
helps you to apply
the patients to read
for the 10 thousand seconds
to accomplish the feat of acquiring
the knowledge
that can be added to your existing
mental database.


Mental Stamina
provides the foundation
to exist in any
hostile or chaotic


Within the walls
of a home of chaos


Within the walls
of a school that is chaotic


Within the walls
of a working environment
that is chaos daily


Within the walls
of a prison that is chaos hourly


Within the walls
of a city limit
that is a city of chaos


Within the walls
of a nation’s boundaries
that exist in chaos


In order to exist…
one has to have

a strong foundation of knowledge
based on information

that will allow
the individual to focus

on his/her individualism
that will shield the individual
from acquiescing to
Chaotic behavior


The Ability to focus…
While being subjected to chaos
for extended periods of time
Is the validation of ones
Mental Stamina


Building Mental Stamina
is the understanding

to patiently
acquire information

on all subjects...

Fox Business’ Charles Payne Calls Harassment Allegations a 'Lies' 7/10/17


Individual Character will always dictate the type of environment one habitat within


as a Corporate Power House,
continue to prove to the world,
what piss poor leadership will produce,
in terms of human behavior,
within a male and female,
working environment.


Sexism, Racism, Bullying, Abusiveness,
are the typical type of human behavior that permeate the entire
employee ranks, specifically,
based on the type of leadership behavior traits
observed in the top offices at


Leadership Is By Example


Human Flawed Behavior,
completely controllable, have exposed many flawed behaviors that include,
but not limited to,
Sexual Harassment to the extent that,
woman have been extorted into performing
sexual acts in order to maintain a high profile position, or
to attain a high powered position,
within the Fox's World Wide interest.


It Is Only A Job


The Individual who do not understand
his/her individual's convictions,
limitations, or the value of ones knowledge and skills,
will always find that they are bullied into accepting
flawed behavior, and flawed decisions
by leadership, and by co workers...
specifically because the individual
does not understand that
it is he/she who is of the greater value...
based on the individual's skills and knowledge,
because without the skills, and physical presence of employees,
no boss, no supervisor, no manager, and no corporation
can exist.

Vehicle plows into crowd gathered on street in Charlottesville, Va.;

A Direct Reflection of the Presidency... "RACIST"

The President's Racist goes back to his childhood, in that,
Trump's Daddy was arrested for violence as a KKK Member.

In 1927, Donald Trump’s father was arrested after a Klan riot in Queens

Even as Trump's family  history is purposely avoided by the entire media conglomerates, Trump's refusal to call the Racist of this nation, what they are, it is his lack of direct contempt that provides the facts for the entire world to see.

Vehicle plows into crowd gathered on street in Charlottesville, Va.;

Just as the Police Chief ignores the correct cop, which emboldens the cop to continue to act more corruptly, racist in America, feed off Trump's racist condoning.










Fired memo writer hits back: Google ‘almost like a cult’

Diversity Nullifies Cult Like Loyalty

Sexism, Racism, and Now... Cult Loyalty

The Big Tech Companies are falling victims of their own ignorance to the known behavior flaws of "Lacking Diversity".

Sure, you get a big check when working for Google, but,

if your a woman, you'll be sexually assaulted or treated
like a inferior mind,

if your none white, you are few and very far in between, being left to be the outside culture... the wrong race....

if your a white male, you must kiss ass like you enjoy it and make every effort to be the bosses child.

Trump to McConnell in latest tweet: 'Get back to work,' 'You can do it!'

When You are the "One" being abused... it is so different

McConnell now the object of Trump's belittling attacks, even as his wife serves under Trump's desk.   When we ignore the flaws in those who serve with us or for us, then we allow these same types of abuses to sometime in the short future, to find us and deliver the same degree of abuses on our own person.

Always, Always, immediately, put bullies in check, so that the bully does not feel any sense that his/her actions are

acceptable, allowed, condoned or will go un addressed.

CIA 'torture psychologists' avoid trial with secret settlement

Two psychologists who helped design the CIA's post-9/11 interrogation CIA 'torture psychologists' avoid trial with secret settlement program settled a lawsuit Thursday by detainees alleging they were illegally tortured.

The secret settlement in the suit, brought on behalf of two living ex-detainees and one who died of hypothermia after brutal questioning in US custody, avoided what would have been the first public trial of the Central Intelligence Agency's use of torture on suspected Al-Qaeda members.





They Got Hurt At Work — Then They Got Deported

At age 31, Nixon Arias cut a profile similar to many unauthorized immigrantsThey Got Hurt At Work — Then They Got Deported in the United States. A native of Honduras, he had been in the country for more than a decade and had worked off and on for a landscaping company for nine years. The money he earned went to building a future for his family in Pensacola, Fla. His Facebook page was filled with photos of fishing and other moments with his three boys, ages 3, 7 and 8.

But in November 2013, that life began to unravel.

The previous year, Arias had been mowing the median of Highway 59 just

over the Alabama line when his riding lawnmower hit a hole, throwing him into the air.





Top Republicans Criticize White Supremacists, But Don't Call Out Trump

Vice President Pence on Wednesday declined to denounce or distance himself Top Republicans Criticize White Supremacists, But Don't Call Out Trumpfrom President Trump's controversial remarks the day before that "there's blame on both sides" for recent violent clashes in Charlottesville, Va., between white supremacist groups and counter protesters.

"What happened in Charlottesville was a tragedy, and the president has been clear on this tragedy and so have I," Pence told reporters in Chile. "I spoke at length about this horrible situation in Colombia, and I stand with the president and I stand by those words."

Pence was asked specifically about Trump's about-face on Tuesday, in





Jewish Trump Officials Silent on President’s Defense of Anti-Semitic Protesters

WASHINGTON — Jewish members of President Trump’s administration Jewish Trump Officials Silent on President’s Defense of Anti-Semitic Protesters remained largely silent Wednesday after Mr. Trump came to the defense of nationalist and right-wing protesters in Charlottesville, Va., who had chanted anti-Semitic slogans and demeaned the president’s Jewish son-in-law.

Gary D. Cohn, the director of the president’s National Economic Council, who is Jewish, was described by several people close to him as “disgusted” and “deeply upset” by the president’s remarks.





Crews remove Baltimore's Confederate statues overnight

Baltimore's Confederate four monuments have come down faster than Crews remove Baltimore's Confederate statues overnightpreviously thought. Baltimore's mayor and City Council

members differed over how to remove the city's

four Confederate monuments, but crews removed all four statues early Wednesday.

"I thought that there was enough grandstanding, enough speeches being made.

Get it done.

I spoke with the Council on Monday morning.

I spoke with the president of the City Council.

I said, 'With the climate of this nation, that I think it's very important that we move quickly and quietly,'" Pugh

said during a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

"I did what was right for my city," Pugh said.

About a dozen city crews and private contractors were seen in Wyman Park, removing the Lee and Jackson Monument.

Crews started getting ready around midnight Tuesday.




Charlottesville violence: America - diminished and dismissed

I've just returned to Washington after a few weeks in Europe. In 20 years of living in the US, I've never returned to a country so dispirited, nor so dismissed.

I include in that the anti-Americanism that surrounded the invasion of Iraq and the trauma of the financial crash.

Dispirited. Back in 2004 and 2008 Americans were by and large united,

or at the very least they were not so angrily divided.

One might think that the sight of swastikas on

American streets would indeed unite the country in unwavering purpose. Not so.

McConnell weighs in — 'There are no good neo-Nazis' — without mentioning Trump

upremacist groups “should not be welcome anywhere in America” and that McConnell weighs in — 'There are no good neo-Nazis' — without mentioning Trump “we all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head.” Unlike some Republicans, such as Sen. Marco Rubio, McConnell made no direct mention of President Trump. But his statement seemed — and was viewed by one White House adviser — as a pointed rebuke to the president’s press conference remark Tuesday that “you also had some very fine people on both sides” in the violent protests in Charlottesville over the weekend.
