Jorge Ramos says Donald Trump's event on Tuesday was "the first time Speaking on CNN's "New Day," Ramos said he stood up to ask about Trump's deportation my life, anywhere in the world, in which I have been escorted out of a press conference."

Perhaps both men benefited -- Ramos by getting to challenge Trump in front of millions of viewers, Trump by getting to appear gracious by letting the reporter back in, then tough by responding to the rapid-fire questions.

Some Trump supporters and conservative commentators say the candidate should have left Ramos outside, since the journalist stood up and starting asking questions without being called on.

Trump said on Wednesday's "Today" show that Ramos "was totally out of line last night" and was "ranting and raving like a madman."

CNN/ORC poll: Obama disapproval up, most say U.S. doing badly

CNN Propaganda Machine Divides for ratings

" Propaganda: deceptive or distorted information that is systematically spread "

In the year of our lord, 2008, America was in a financial collapse Obama speakscreated by the Republican President Bush, who in 2008, had this nation involved in a illegal war based on flawed and subsequently proven wrong facts based on the reasons that America Attacked Iraq.

When Bush left the white house, America had just gave $Billions to Banks in order so save the American Currency, subsequently bailed out the Auto Industry and was in a tale spin regarding jobs with an unemployment rate of 9% plus, not to mention "$Trillions" in debt for a war that was costing $90 Billion Monthly.


America is at 5% unemployment, and financially stable, and not involved in "any war" that is the responsibility of America, yet,

if you listen to CNN, you will get the impression that

President Obama has America on the cusp of the 2008 existence, when in 2008, CNN wasn't speaking of the complete collapse that America was truly in.

CNN's Propaganda Machine is in full effect,

so make sure that you understand where we are before you believe anything CNN peddles.

has provided us all with enough evidence to conclude that unqualified people are serving in the most important and most powerful offices in the U.S. Government.

The NSA's blatant spying and the lack of qualified members serving on the President's own cabinet has led to the constant disposition of "putting out fires" based on the inability to prevent or plan qualified and proper securities that would prevent technical attacks by China & Russia, because we have allow either abusiveness or ignorance in the seats of power.







China blast warehouse execs used connections to get safety approvals -Xinhua

How far is the U.S. from China's System of Corruption?

China's systemic corruption has lead to a tale spin of a series of Public anger against the government has surged in the northeastern port of Tianjin among residents of apartments near the blasts who believed authorities neglected to properly police the firm, Tianjin Dongjiang Port Ruihai International Logistics.disasters of catastrophic purportions, all pointing to the depth of China's corruption.

What's the difference between America & China?

The American Congress approval rating is less than 9%

and they, over the past 15 years, have done nothing that could be construed as acting on the behalf of the American Citizens outside of the Affordable Health Care Act,

which continues to this day, a challenge to remove it by all of the republicans who serve in the House of Reps simply Barak Obama got it done and no other reason why.

It is extremely important to understand that

our government is where China's government is

with respect to

caring about the citizens primarily because the American citizens have been convinced to acquiesce to a two party system that is so polluted with cronyism, nepotism, and donations for favors that

that American Citizen

simply does not care anymore.

Will it take a catastrophe like the huge explosion that took place in China for the citizens of America to understand that

"you vote them in".....







Notable Mississippians join chorus to change state flag

Confederate Racist Mantel Peace removal #2

The Confederate Flag is the

Historical Representation of The History of Racism in America

Former Netscape CEO Jim Barksdale and Mississippi business leader Jack Reed Sr. signed the letter. Those that display it proudly and claim that they are unaware of the history of what the confederate flag represent, simply take a good look at where these people live and who they associate with daily, and if the answer is

"very few non whites"

then there you go.

Those who suggest that it is time to remove the

 Confederate Flag from State Capital's say so to suggest that your state intent is to represent 100% of its citizens and not just those with

white skin, per the implied and historical history associated with the confederate flag.

Those that choose to continue to display the confederate flag on your own land or on your own property,

feel free to do so, however,

realize that you are identifying yourself for what you accept as perception of who you are.

Those who display the confederate flag proudly....

have you ever wondered why all whites don't do the same?







Huckabee's hard line on abortion: 10-year-old rape victim should have to carry child


So Outlandish to the point that Huckabee's comments are

Extreme Ignorance.

To state that a

" 10 Year Old Girl "

Huckabee is a complete idiot with a barbaric view of womanafter being raped, should she get pregnant, ought to be forced to carry the child until child is born.....

is so bad of a perspective that I can only conclude that

Mike Huckabee is Psychologically Damaged

The ramifications and the residual affects of a 10 year having a child and the child itself, being raised as the child of a 10 year old who was raped, in itself is enough to warrant human consideration for both of these two individuals lives, in that,

both will need long term psychological and emotional treatment and Huckabee position is,

this is better for the non born infant.

Mike Huckabee will never be discussed on this website again.







305 documents from Clinton server referred for further review

Clinton's use of a personal server proves that she has no idea

Common Sense tells us that if your speaking with the President daily Hillaryor weekly as part of your job requirements, there is a 99.9% chance that some of your conversations will be classified.

Hillary's inability to recognize that simple fact proves that she consciously chose to disregard common sense judgment because she simply refuses to follow any rules.

If you doubt that I'm right, surely you would have to assume that Hillary's Husband, former President Clinton,

would have informed her that part of her job was to speak with the President and having a server at home would surely be a bad move.

I'm going to assume the worse in this case, and that is, Bill attempted to tell Hillary but Hillary ignored Bill as well.


to put this Hillary and the email issue to bed,

conclude that there are potentially hundreds of possible instance where Hillary failed to adhere to basic confidential material protocol as the Secretary of State.

Hillary is either Stupid, or refuses to follow rules.







Tianjin explosion: Dozens dead; areas of Chinese port city devastated

What happens when Industry Doesn't

Follow Laws or Rules

Here is what doesn't, or hasn't happened yet in America.

What's left of a area that was subjected to an explosion that no one knows why.

China, a nation known for it's unwillingness to follow any standard rules as it associates with

"Industrial Development & Commerce".

From the blatant copying of a list of American made products, to the exporting of car parts that have lead to millions of cars being recalled and 23 suspected deaths resulting from the flawed manufacturing of parts and test, to

China's total disregard to reigning in of their manufacturing industry that has caused significant air pollution....

China blatantly ignores all the laws and rules of fair industry practices.

The result are catastrophe of this nature,

and my heart pours out for all that have been harmed

simply because someone, or a group have ignored all the standard rules of safety for a profit.

We send our prayers to those who are and have been devastated in this horrid explosion.

Lives matter more than a profit

Here's why your local police force owns a tank

Inside the mind of a flawed official and how he/she thinks

What type of person would consider allowing military heavy One out six departments were “prepared to use the vehicles to serve search or arrest warrants on individuals who had yet to be convicted of a crime,”equipment to be part of his/her police department?

What type of mind would allow the use of a tank and other heavy and high powered military equipment to be used on the citizens of his/her community?

These 2 questions,

when answered, will describe to you, who and what type of a person is that is leading many cities in this nation and I for one, consider these types of mind sets in an individual,

poison in the powerful offices that lead any community, for this type of mind set consider "dominance" over "serving".

You voted these Mayors into your local offices and if you have a military style vehicle as part of an option for your local police department, then you have the wrong people in the seats of power who are capable of doing great harm with the tool called

the police department.







Oil wars: OPEC keeps pumping as prices plunge

A Win for 99% of all Americans... But

Low Gas prices helps the poor in such a way that it allows a sense of Sanctions have long restricted Iran's oil production and exports, and the country is eager to regain its status as a global energy power. independence because when $5 dollars pays for 3 gallons of gas, the average car can deliver upwards of 60 to 80 miles of travel, and for most poor people, an average of 10 miles a day of driving allows that person to drive off of $5 dollars up to  4 to 6 days.

However, when $5 pays for 1 gallon of gas, you can see how the poor person is placed in a tough spot for 5 days each week.

However, the punishment for us all is the lowered "Profits" for the oil companies causes the companies to lay off people to ensure that a profit level is maintained in an act that cares not for thousands of employees who rely on a steady and certain income annually.

Those in the 1% always win even when the poor win.

Failure in the Justice System

& All who represent an off

office in the Justice System


The American Justice System,


The American way of life that is so called.... above and better than all societies around the world because those that sit in "our" seats of power within the American Justice System are more apt to behave rationally and morally towards our American Citizens
regardless of their race or gender,


The American Justice System blind to race, gender, and religious beliefs,


The American Justice System that preaches to the world regarding policies and procedures as if this American Justice System has no flaws and there are no flawed people within this American Justice System,


The American Justice System which purports equal justice for all and equal treatment for all,


The American Justice System that....
in reality... is at a minimum,

substandard to many nations that operate today,


racist based on 90% of those who sit in the seats of power and are in position to identify and act against racist cops and their pattern or racist behavior,


substandard based on the level of education required for those who are allowed to qualify as candidates for and serve as officers walking a beat each day,


substandard with respect to the quality of training in immediate supervisor who purport to be qualified to oversee any number of subordinates and take action to assign corrective actions as needed or recommend termination when required based on performance,


substandard with respect to realizing,


understanding and how to assess if a possible candidate is qualified psychologically or emotionally to become a police officer

officer's supervisor,

or a police chief,


substandard in assessing whether or not a police report is forged,


poorly written,

filled with un-realistic circumstance of a situation,


filled with blatant perjured information and unrealistic exaggerations.


There is absolutely no excuse or any acceptable explanation to place these two individuals in jail for 17 years based on the circumstances that they were tried for,
and all that have served during this trial whom would attempt to justify or explain a point of view that suggest that this was a
reasonable incarceration...
were and are wrong
to the extent that you should have your own 12 year old taken from your arms and subjected to the same 17 years of life as a convicted criminal.


Every Nation of people on earth that reads this story...,
this is what the true American Justice System
was doing in the past and is capable of today.

One battle the Confederate flag

2 Historic Events that validates
a new American Future based on "Demographics"


The Election of President Obama and

the removal of the
Confederate Flag from the

South Carolina State Capital
are two consecutive signs of the snowballing effects of the changing attitude
in whites that solidifies the direction of what the future
America will eventually become.


The Willingness to Vote for a Black Man


President Obama could not have been elected without some of the white vote and the fact that a percentage of white people,
who chose to vote for President Obama,
added with the Blacks & Hispanics
and other non 100% white Americans
made it possible for the first Black American Citizen to actually win the
office of the
United States Presidency.


The first of it's kind,
a stance against the emblem of white supremacy
by whites in America... has just been accomplished
and it is this act and action by those whites that have
kicked open the doors to those whites who will choose to continue to be racist... but without the cloak of blinding into the huge numbers of whites that provide both
a representation of huge numbers,
and the protection of anonymity among those who said nothing to identify the true racist among the millions of white Americans.

First Republican Debate... a travisty that demands loyalty to the republican ideology.... or else you are dirt.

Republican presidential debate: 8 takeaways 8/7/15


First Demand is
"Loyalty to the Republican Party"


Demanding loyalty to the Republican Party ensures that you are against the democratic party, which means you are unwilling to work for the betterment of 49% of the American Voters who claim to be members of the Democratic Party.


Fox Network Consciously promote Republican Party Disposition

The danger, in my opinion, is that we have a television network's representatives promoting the ideology of the Republican Party with the tone, in which the above question is posed, and his disposition, when asking the question, was that of the demeanor of full expectations that the crowd would back his demeanor to loath any individual who would raise his/her hand as the individual/s who would be so disgusting to go against the republican party if that person were not to win the republican's party nomination.


Networks and Representatives Promoting an Political Ideology is the problem


The Democratic Party and their loyal Television Networks, along with their loyal political party worshipers..., are no less egregious to this American Society, in that,
because there is one side displaying so intense willingness to loath the other side,
the laws of human nature dictates that there is an equal and equivalent opposing side called the Democrats, who also demand a conscientious loyalty in those who claim to be
members and worshippers of the democratic ideology.

Theismann: Anonymous coach is gutless for criticizing 'Skins

Joe Theismann took great exception to the fact that an Joe Theismann ripped the 'anonymous coach' who criticized the Redskins for putting Robert Griffin III on the field to get beaten.NFL coach anonymously criticized the Washington Redskins, characterizing any person who refuses to stand by their opinions by providing their name when making a comment as “spineless and gutless.” Theismann’s vitriolic take stems from an anonymous league coach telling Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman that Redskins head coach Jay Gruden’s decision to leave Robert Griffin III in last week’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins to get bruised, beaten and battered — ultimately to suffer a concussion — appeared “personal.” The former Redskins great was having nothing of it, blasting the notion during an appearance Monday on NewsChannel 8’s “Sports Talk” that any NFL coach would feel compelled to anonymously rip another member of their fraternity.
