87 migrant bodies wash up on Libya beach

The number of bodies of migrants recovered on a Libyan beach since the 87 migrant bodies wash up on Libya beach weekend has risen to 87, a media official from the coastal city of Sabratha said on Monday.

The bodies began washing up on the city's beach west of Tripoli on Friday, the official said.

On Saturday, 41 bodies were found by a group of volunteers trained by the city council and sent to a morgue for DNA testing before being buried.

The rest were found over the weekend, the official added. Illegal migration from Libya booms in the summer months when the Mediterranean is generally calm and traffickers pack unsafe boats with migrants desperate to start a new life in Europe.

People smugglers have taken advantage of the chaos gripping Libya since the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed dictator Moamer Kadhafi to boost their lucrative business.

They cram migrants into boats that are small and unsafe for the perilous journey to Italy just 300 kilometres (190 miles) from Libya's shores.

 

 

 

Bill's role: To be determined

What kind of first gentleman would Bill Clinton be? That's the question on the minds of many as Hillary Clinton seeks to become the first woman to ever hold the Oval Office.

The swapped roles of power and gender could create a tricky dynamic for the former president, partly relating to the trials and personalities surrounding the dynastic power couple, which has spent most of the last three decades in the public spotlight.

Bill Clinton would almost certainly want a prominent role in his wife's administration, but doing so would be fraught with political risk, experts say, particularly given his fame and outsize personality.

How Syrians are using the popularity of Pokémon Go to draw attention to children’s plight

The images capture in stark relief the concurrent realities of 2016: As The Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office (RFS) has been tweeting photographs of children holding up printouts of Pokémon, alongside captions describing their locations within Syria and imploring people to "save me" — a nod to how Pokémon Go players must physically arrive at a Pokémon's destination in order to catch it.

RFS is an agency of activist-journalists and a "platform for the revolutionary forces operating on the ground" against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.Pokémon Go sweeps the globe, war rages on in Syria, where more than 3.7 million children were born into the crosshairs of violence.

Missives from the conflict have been familiar enough. In September, a widely circulated photograph of 3-year-old Alan Kurdi's lifeless body provoked horror and outrage. He drowned during a treacherous boat ride from Turkey to Greece, where his family hoped to escape the devastation in Syria. At the sight of the boy washed up on the sand, politicians promised to tackle the crisis with newfound urgency.

Months later, however, Alan's own family members despaired that his plight — and that of millions others displaced in Syria — had already been forgotten.

Now, Syrian activists are capitalizing on the popularity of Pokémon Go to draw attention to the children caught in the conflict.

Wisconsin sheriff on recent Baton Rouge shootings: I predicted this

Poor Leadership Traits,

lead to flawed law enforcement

The disposition of those ranked above "anyone", will reflect in the When police are shot, America is the target

Lemon and Clarke, who will speak Monday at the Republican National Convention, got off to a rocky start. 

Lemon began the interview by saying law enforcement officials in Louisiana talked about the Baton Rouge police killings. "Their message is peace and coming together in the country. What's your message?"behavior, and discipline, in those that rank

below them.

However,

when the top ranking individual disposition is that of

"Arrogance, Rudeness, Attacking, Unprofessional, and Ill-Rational",

then all that serves below that leader,

will mimic the leader, plus more.

Wisconsin Sheriff, should be removed permanently, for poor leadership qualities based on this interview alone.

He is attacking, unwilling to listen, unable to stick to the subject, and his blatantly rudeness, which are all qualities, that will be mimic-ed by each and every police officer that serves below this sheriff, and those officers will display this behavior with every citizen they meet.

Leadership is

"BY EXAPLE"!!!!!

This Sheriff example is unacceptable.

NBA pulls All-Star Game from Charlotte over transgender law: report

Great Job by the NBA... others ought to follow

A law passed in March made North Carolina the first U.S. state to require transgender people to use restrooms in public buildings and schools that match the sex on their birth certificate rather than their gender identity.To allow any law...

to discriminate against any individual, or any group,

is wrong.

Sometimes, actions speak louder than words.

Sometimes doing nothing is actually doing a lot.

Sometimes, standing up for others who are not strong enough, as an individual, or as a small group, displays the true character in the entity that chooses to "do something".

Because, doing nothing harms us all.

Take a stance for something, and become known for doing something, rather than saying nothing,

and doing nothing,

when you could be the next victim that all ignores.

After Shootings, Police Departments Warn Officers

No "JOB" is worth your life or your safety

New York City Police Department Commissioner William Bratton told CBS News on Sunday that his department is keeping officers safe by arming them with smartphones that alert them to dangerous individuals. In another CBS interview, he said his plainclothes officers would “for the time being” work in uniform and those in solo patrols would “double up” because of the Dallas and Baton Rouge killings.

A Job is what a person does in order to earn money,

and based on the amount of money one makes,

from the job that he/she is paid to do, one designs a life style that is based on the amount of money that the job pays for the actions that one performs.

When a "JOB"

becomes to

stressful, unsafe, or even dangerous,

it then becomes prudent for the individual to re-assess, whether or not he/she is willing to continue...

to the job based on whether the amount of money that he/she is paid,

to do that specific job.

The Individual must prioritize his/her individual psychological,

emotional, and physical well being

as the most valuable aspects of what define the individual.

To do a job that

 causes any inkling of a

psychological cost, a emotional cost, or a physical cost,

that is high enough to cause the individual to

not enjoy life of the job,

then.... it is time for the individual to

Baltimore police lieutenant acquitted in Freddie Gray death

Retaliation by Citizens against the Justice System

Tensions flared anew this month with the deaths of African-American men at the hands of police in Minnesota and Louisiana. The controversy took a tragic turn when eight police officers were shot dead in apparent reprisal attacks staged by lone black gunmen in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

From the top of the Justice System, the failure of equal and fair dissemination of judgments, burns in the hearts of those who are the victims of constant victimization.

Protectionism for those who volunteer to serve as wielders of the law, place themselves in the cross hairs of citizens who suffer from

racism, bigotry and unfair judgment

in American Courts.

A man is arrested, and subsequently dies from a broken neck, caused somewhere between the time that he was tackled by cops while fleeing, to the time he was delivered to the police station.

Each Police Officer that interacted with the man that died, while in their custody, have thus far, been judged as "doing nothing wrong"

by a single judge.

Yet...

those on the side of the justice system, for decades, repeat the same sentence whenever there is a police arrest that leads to the death of a citizen...

"let the justice system do it's job".....

Well...,

the justice system has failed,

over, and over, and over...

so, why allow the justice system to do it's job when the results assigns double jeopardy to the citizen victims?

The story of a girl married at 11 tracks the horrors of Yemen’s war

Human Atrocity ignored by the Civilized Nations

“Fathers are thinking, ‘If I have a daughter at or near puberty, I should try to get her married as fast as possible to lessen expenses,’ ” said Ahmad al-Qurashi, the director of SEYAJ, a well-known Yemeni nonprofit working to protect children.As a Nation, America has failed in its Moral Responsibilities.

When this nation ops to do business with a nation that allows, and condones the marriage of a

"11 Year Old Girl",

under any circumstance,

it places this nation in the category of

"complicity" in inhuman acts and actions forced upon a child.

America's History is entrenched with turning other cheek when it comes to "preaching right and wrong"

to other nations, while American leaders have ignored the responsibilities that they assign to other nation's leaders,

by purchasing services and goods from nations that allow rape of  a child cloaked as a marriage.

There isn't "1" American Adult who have not seen a 11 year old female child, and would condone...

that 11 year old girl to be married to a 28 year old man.

Immoral Leaders, who have turned the other cheek,

are not leaders at all.

BRPD, "asking for help" from citizens who charge BRPD with abusiveness

Source: 7 officers shot; 3 feared dead in Baton RougeWe are seeing a pattern of attacks on police officers which can be labeled as "revenge attacks" by citizens who have seemingly, been forced to fight back after of decades of police brutality, murders, racial profiling, by police departments from every corner of this nation.

99.9% of all police fatal shootings that result in the death of an American Citizen result in "no charges or no convictions", even in circumstances where upwards of dozens of citizens, all purport to provide witness accounts contrary to what is written in a police report, yet, the entire judicial system, at every level,

sides with the cops.

In this instance, BRPD, within the past 9 days, have found itself on the wrong end of a cell phone video that depicts a questionable shooting of a man, who became the 2nd dead man in 2 days, killed by a police, with both incidents being video recorded.

Now... BRPD is asking for help from the same citizens who have been complaining of their brutality for decades...

Poetic Justice?

What happens when the law allows all to carry guns, while the entire justice system abuses the very citizens who that pay their salaries?

WNBA president talks about fining players over warm-up shirts

NEW YORK -- WNBA president Lisa Borders applauds the league's players for taking an active stance on social issues, she just wishes they would keep it off the court. Borders spent the past two weeks talking with the union and its executive council, trying to come up with ways that both the league and its players could constructively address the Black Lives Matters movement. Nothing concrete was decided. "We were making every effort to engage our players," she told The Associated Press in a phone interview Friday night. "We made an effort to support them and we were trying to get them to come to the table to have a conversation. The players have an open invitation with the league. Our players are important to us. We believe in them. We want them to be the people they are and we're proud of them. We want to make sure they play well on the court and they are happy off the court."

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell facing 4-game ban for missed drug test

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

The suspension is the result of a missed drug test, not a failed one, sources said. The appeals process is ongoing, which is why the suspension hasn't been announced. No date for Bell's appeal has been set, though it's expected that it will be heard before the regular season. If it isn't overturned, Bell would miss the first four games of the season.

Prince's last days: Health scares, thrilling shows, purple pianos 4/23

I fell in love with Prince’s Music
in 1979 And today…
I feel Lost in Love

 

In 1979…, while visiting a friend’s home…,
he played a “Prince Album” during my visit, and it was my first introduction to the voice, and the sound of a individual who made music, in a manner that I truly appreciated, from a artist perspectictive.

 

I have always had a deep, and compassionate heart, and on this Prince Album, from 1979…, there were two songs that seemed to understand my heart, as I looked into the eyes of the girls whom I had a crush on.

 

To this day…,
Prince’s songs remain on my #1’s Itunes Play List, along with many others…, all of which,
I listen to daily.

 

In my heart...,
I viewed Prince as the one that is still productive, and part of this world’s historical talent core that I truly cherish…,
especially after the death of MJ.

DNC chair won't speak at Dem convention following Wikileaks fallout

Rigged/Fixed Parties, are being proven as a fact

The suspicion of both political party's corruption, that have lead many to speak out loud.. that both parties nomination process..., Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort "to keep the peace" in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emailsisn't a process at all, but, nothing less than, those at the top, manipulating who will win and who will not...

Donald Trump's experience has provided considerable insight, as to how the republican party, demands specific standards, with the specific expectation that their standards would yield only their expected outcome, which Donald Trump was demanded to follow, in the form of... pledging loyalty to the party, but, it was Trump who provided the proof of the extensive flaws in the republican parties standards when he won the nomination, based on their rules, but some who swore loyalty,

just ask Trump did,

refused to honor the rules, buy  not pledging loyalty... specifically because Trump won.

Similarly, the democrats have been exposed to have the same type of top 1% deception, now validated by a list of emails, that substantiate previous allegations by Sanders campaign, of favoritism towards Hillary Clinton.

Point:

Why are you loyal to either of the two parties,

when these facts have been laid at your feet?

Both parties are lead by individuals at the top, who fix the results, such that..., the individuals that win, play ball with those at the top..., or that individual will be subjected to an unfair process, ultimately leading to the individual's "loss" of the nomination.

You give the 2 parties power by participating in their

corrupt system.

Change your loyalty to

The American Party.

The GOP’s new convention theme: ‘Lock her up!’

How Embarrassing for a Presidential Candidate..

When Thousands of people chant "Lock Her Up",

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recited a series of Clinton’s alleged misdeeds and led the crowd in shouts of “guilty” after each. 

“Lock her up!” 

the convention crowd shouted repeatedly on both nights. The chant — not heard before at Donald Trump’s rallies — has quickly become the theme of the GOP’s gathering in Cleveland. “Give me a few minutes,” Christie said Tuesday as the chant interrupted the start of his speech.

“We’ll get there.”when the individual is running for the highest office in the entire world, then what does it say when that individual actually wins that office, and becomes the President of the

United States of America?

When the facts suggest that, in fact, she has done something that could be construed as an illegal act, yet she doesn't have the character to recognize that...,

perhaps she should not accept the award of the greatest office on earth, specifically because, she... herself, have admitted that her act that has caused the thousands to chant "LOCK HER UP",

was an act that was a very poor decision...

at a minimum.

How Embarrassing is for America to elect a person of such poor judgment? 

How Embarrassing is it, for the individual to travel the world, smile in the face of other leaders, when they know that she has done a thing that states the value of her character?

The Democrats, The Republicans &

any citizen that votes for Hillary Clinton....

"what the heck is wrong with you"?
