Welcome Biden/Harris: African Americans Must Remain Vigilant
Inaugural Day 2021
A majority of Americans are taking a sigh of relief with the departure of the Trump presidency from the executive branch of the United States Of America.
While we appreciate the moment with grandiose traditions of inaugural day, African Americans must remain vigilant to the decades old work in pursuit of inalienable rights which requires constant focus, momentum, and unrelenting UNITY. READ MORE
God Reminds America He will not be Mocked. Trump Allowed to Take Root
Referencing Biblical scriptures is something I try not to employ, because of the fervor believers project, it is easy to get off subject. I am from a pastor’s family in which my sister and I was expected to continue a ministerial legacy. I sought theology instruction, but after a 4 year sabbatical in search to answer if Christian ministry was my path and after much deliberation and meditation, I decided to take a different career path.
My sister passed over at 31 years of age with her last breath speaking in tongues, leaving those parting utterances burned into my heart.
Presidencies by and large come and go. Most times POTUS leaves a legacy reflecting the challenges and accomplishments on their watch. One of the stumbling points for all POTUS is the plight of African Americans. The reason for such barbed-blocks is the slaves’ long-term, foundational investment in fortifying the country’s economy. That index transcended into a highly productive, profitable, and mammoth slave portfolio, which singularly fueled America’s propulsion to super power status. READ MORE
Systemic Hack: re-Defined Scrutiny Levels for Treason on the Horizon
Federal laws apply to people living in the United States and its territories. Congress creates and passes bills. The president then may sign those bills into law. Federal courts may review the laws to see if they agree with the Constitution.
Legal definitions outlining treason and espionage are well established. There is a shift in the wind laying the ground work to re-Define scrutiny levels (bars) in the era of “Insurrection January 2021” legal challenges. The language describing the almost debilitating action taken against the pillars of democracy in modern day America is taking shape to lessen the consequences for the capital offenses committed by the insurrection anarchist.

I Smell A Rat, You Dirty Rat
Misinformation strategy employed by Trump is not a strategy Trump has the aptitude to develop. I smell a anarchist rat by the name of Stephen Miller. Trump, rallied by Miller, project an authoritarian leaning which they both publicly embrace.
You dirty rat or I smell a rat can be attributed to Patrick Henry or a Bogart, Cagney movie. You choose. Patrick Henry, one of the founding fathers of the United States is said to have used the phrase “I smell a rat”. READ MORE
The Insurrection Cometh

Trumpism and Republican Voter Suppression Alive and Well
Sometimes the American political landscape appears compromised by questionable and secretive alliances such as the Hitler and Stalin secret agreement.
As expected the victorious win for the Biden/Harris ticket is being challenged even after winning the majority in the electoral college and at-large vote tallies.
The day after the vote the Republicans seemed to acquiesce, but after several days of reflection and threats from their commandant and fearless leader DJ Trump, they all have taken a posture of defiance to Democratic principles and functionality.
Democrats are showing fissions in the party platform with some being weary of the progressive wing of the party. READ MORE
Black Militia Group NFAC Surfaces In Lafayette
The Black militia group NFAC surfaces in Lafayette, Louisiana recently to bring attention to the further killing of unarmed Black people.
An armed militia led a protest march in Lafayette, La., Saturday (October 3, 2020) after police shot and killed a Black man.
The demonstration was held in honor of 31-year-old Trayford Pellerin who was shot by Lafayette police on Aug. 21 after police responded to a call concerning a disturbed individual with a knife at a gas station.
The group, dubbed the Not F—— Around Coalition (NFAC), has made appearances at several protests in recent months, including after the death of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. READ MORE
Black People: Take This Point in Time Seriously
In the first presidential debate Trump would not renounce white supremacy and white militia aggression.
When pressed by the debate moderator, Trump in no uncertain terms said for racist groups to stand back and stand by. That is the slogan of the Proud Boys militia, which further confirms Trump knows that particular mantra and to whom it belongs.
Anytime the Commander and Chief signals to white armed militia, KKK, alt-right Christians and every other faction that opposes the existence of Black life in America, Black people had better take those passive signals serious. READ MORE
Executive Order Establishing the “1776 Commission”
Establishing the “1776 Commission” is the latest effort to justify America’s indelible slave economy origins and present-day persistent racist ideology.
Any ill-conceived notions that excites Trump’s under-educated, racist voting block will be employed while attempting to derail the upcoming 2020 elections.
Trump recently announced several measures aimed at promoting what he called “patriotic education” while blasting progressive efforts at re-examining American history through a race-critical lens as “toxic propaganda.” READ MORE
Breonna Taylor Case Smells of Rampant Justice Denied From Top to Bottom
The Breonna Taylor murder cover-up gets more intriguing the longer it simmers. We are witnessing a law enforcement that grows violently more Anti-afrimetic and vehemently opposes the Black Lives Matter movement.
Every stall tactic and demeaning maneuver is being played out in the state and city in which Muhammad Ali was born, which is Louisville, Ky.
At the top of these state sanctioned miscarriages’ of justice is a young Black Republican State Attorney General, Daniel Jay Cameron. Also, keep in mind Mitch McConnell is the Senator from this bankrupt state. READ MORE

HOW SEARCH ENGINES REINFORCE RACISM
A revealing look at how negative biases against women of color are embedded in search engine results and algorithms
Run a Google search for “black girls”—what will you find? “Big Booty” and other sexually explicit terms are likely to come up as top search terms. But, if you type in “white girls,” the results are radically different. The suggested porn sites and un-moderated discussions about “why black women are so sassy” or “why black women are so angry” presents a disturbing portrait of black womanhood in modern society.

Trump Deep State Secret Police Surfaces With Gestapo Tactics In Portland
Federal officers are using unmarked cars to arrest Portland protesters. According to reports, peaceful protesters have been detained with no warning or explanations since at least 14 July.
Deep state gestapo tactics employed in Portland; Oregon, should be popping red flag warnings throughout America. This type of action is a precursor to fascism and authoritarian governance. If Trump gains a second term be prepared for anarchy. The local militia’s you knew nothing about because of apathy will surface in once tranquil neighborhoods awaiting Trump’s “Storm Troopers” and other nationalist sects. READ MORE
Cannon Firing Mandates Blacks Need For Platforms’ Ownership
Again a black man is castrated for speaking his truth. ViacomCBS cuts ties with Nick Cannon over purported ‘hateful speech’ and ‘anti-Semitic’ comments. What Nick said was not anti-semitic. Jews along with other white are just fragile. Black people are expected to grin and bare whatever comes their way by any and all. But non-Black people in powerful positions expect Black to snug up, endure, absorb, and have a remorseful reply to derogative statements and innuendo.
This action further illustrates the needs for Black owned platforms across all spectrum of communication globally. Obviously if you say anything contrary to what a Jew deems appropriate, out the door your must go. Blacks must rally behind Nick Cannon, because he knew what the possible consequences would entail. Black people can no longer be held hostage by anyone. READ MORE
Heavily armed protesters, all of whom were Black, marched through Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park on Independence Day, challenging white nationalist groups in the area to either come out and fight or join them in demonstrating against the government.
Stone Mountain State Park officials said the Black militia group was peaceful, orderly and escorted by police Saturday as they called for the removal of the country’s largest Confederate monument near Atlanta. Videos posted to social media show the group, the “Not F**king Around Coalition” (NFAC), meeting at the massive nine-story quartz sculpting that depicts Confederate president Jefferson Davis and Southern generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. READ MORE
Trump’s DOJ dba OFP Headed by Head Cop William Barr
William Barr has succinctly converted the DOJ to the OFP also referred to as the acting Office For Protection, of Trump.
Attorney General Barr’s intervention for Trump allies Michael Flynn and Roger Stone was ‘egregious,’ says prosecutor who quit DOJ. Any and all things either gray areas or blatant disregard for the law, Trump has insisted the DOJ cover his ass. William Barr creates moving screens and legalistic bidets from which Trump can appear cleansed with Barr clinching a stained drying towel.
A former federal prosecutor who quit the Justice Department in protest over its handling of Republican operative Roger Stone’s criminal case in a scathing article Monday He accused the department of a “betrayal of the rule of law” and Attorney General William Barr of “egregious” conduct by intervening in that case and the one of Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s first national security advisor.

Militia General Speaks Out to KKK
It is no fun when the rabbit has the gun.” says Grand Master Jay, founder of NFAC, a Black militia. Grand Master Jay is a highly articulate leader that is unabashedly Black and does not cower from the hard questions and possible confrontation with opposing views or forces.
Grand Master Jay, by all accounts revealed thus far, the organization’s ability to create deliberate and hyper impact strategies that target maneuvers around causes and entities that pose threats to Black people.
Juneteenth: A Commemoration to Slavery’s Formal Finality
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.
Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years. Often told is the story of a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news of freedom. Another is that the news was deliberately withheld by the enslavers to maintain the labor force on the plantations. And still another is that federal troops actually waited for the slave owners to reap the benefits of one last cotton harvest before going to Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation. All of which, or none of these versions could be true. Certainly, for some, President Lincoln’s authority over the rebellious states was in question. Whatever the reasons, conditions in Texas remained status quo well beyond what was statutory. READ MORE
Goodell Attempt at Being Good to All
June 6, 2020 PM
Recent social unrest appear to have put fire under the conscience of NFL president; Roger Stokoe Goodell. Strange how the media is portraying him as “siding with the players”. Under careful review I found the players to be “ESSENTIAL” to the game all along. Not Donald Trump’s divisive edicts.
Maybe the major media outlets are obliged to paint as favorable a picture they can since the NFL pays hundreds of millions yearly to those monopolies.
Now let’s get to the big questions. Since Goodell’s foot is in his mouth, is the NFL also ready to give Colin Kaepernick a fair shake at being a football player? Colin was demanding justice as are the George Floyd protesters. The protesters are demanding justice after witnessing a televised public purging of life from Mr. Floyd as the world gasped in squelching horror.
The Fire Next Time is Upon Us at This Time
June 4, 2020 AM
If you haven’t read the 1963 non-fiction book “The Fire Next Time” by James Baldwin, you might get your copy of profound observances and discernment. The writings by Baldwin exposes dire starkness to the African-American experience in America and a possible correlation steering George Floyd’s untimely appointment to destiny that will assign his sacrifice as unsolicited martyrdom.
As many whom have read The Fire Next Time know, the first installment is a letter wrote to James nephew on the 100 anniversary of the Emancipation. Mr. Baldwin verbally vacillates to his nephew the harsh realities of being born black in America. READ MORE

Obama has Permanent Cranial Residence in TrumpBeing
May 14, 2020 AM
Trump should be careful with his obsession with Obama. His obsession predates far before he was candidate for president. Trump has broken all the ethical practices associated with the office of president.
From a distance a person could surmise Trump has a fetish for Obama. Now, can someone please help find a word that comes to mind when a man has a fetus for another man. In the private confines of Trump’s brain, “Obama has Permanent Cranial Residency in Trump’s Being”. READ MORE

Georgia Purge Pandemic. The Full Panorama of Reality
May 4, 2020 pm
Georgia, oh Georgia. The current government purge effort by Georgia “Keeps Georgia on my mind”, and not in the same spirit Ray Charles lyricized the famous ballad “Georgia on My Mind”.
The governor of Georgia and his fearless, fear mongering leader, Donald Trump have sanctioned a purge effort against black people. Kemp is resolute in actuating a petri dish politics scenario mandating the re-opening of businesses. Further, we have an ex-cop and son emboldened to literally hunt down a black jogger in Brunswick, GA, resulting in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery in cold blood on February 23, 2020.
Survival of the Fittest: Will Tempting Allure Of Good Times and “Vanity Sanity” Trump Survival Instincts?
May 3, 2020 AM
Survival instincts are triggered reflex responses from most mentally healthy human-beings endowed with self esteem. Pandemic containment requires restraint and discipline to self-quarantine, thereby reducing the possibility of spreading the contagion.
Governors of several states are gambling with lives that do not reflect their families socioeconomic status and ethnicity. Some are even whispering this is a good time to implement phase one of a ‘non-existent’ eugenics plan.
A perfect storm is approaching. The stimulus checks have started crediting bank accounts with at least $1200.00. Households of moderate to low income are eager to engage Amazon, Walmart, or activities outside the ‘shelter’. Hair salons and barbershops are poised to be overwhelmed 24/7 365. Club venues, movie theaters, and event promoters are lobbying states for favorable (profitable) crowd attendee capacity numbers. READ MORE
“Planet-Killer” Asteroid Trajectory Path: “Planet Trump”
April 30, 2020 AM
Planet Trump is in the trajectory path of a killer asteroid. At the beginning of the Trump campaign Donald didn’t believe he was going to win. With literally nothing else to do with his time, a decision was made to at least have a presidential campaign as a notation on his legacy. Nor do I believe Trump is a billionaire such as Mike Bloomberg. Bloomberg spent $1B on a failed run for the office of president.
What happens next, Donald did not believe himself. He had bankrupted several businesses, he had his own swank Boeing 767, TV show, and other media intense projects. He could grab women by their pussy’s with no noticeable fallout. He had money, not as much as he claims, but he had enough to rise above the smog. Between Deutsche Bank and the Russians he could default in America and get capital elsewhere. READ MORE

A Trump Easter By The Old Rugged Cross
March 27, 2020 AM
Tales from the White House revealed President Donald J. Trump is advocating to open the country back up for business by Easter(April 12th). Is this an actuary think tank calculation, wishful thinking, or Christian mockery?
For Trump to designate Easter as an economic jump-start should send religious communities quaking in their boots. Most believers understand the significance of the cross and its importance to the Easter observance. The cross is one of the most organically violent punishments to witness. If there is such a thing as a less gruesome crucifixion, the Roman punishment was less disfiguring. On the other hand the Zulu crucifixion could be considered the most disturbing. Why? Because this specific punishment literally rips the torso from the lower extremities. READ MORE
Alvin Sykes: A living Kansas City Legend Not Treated Honorably
March 24, 2020
Say what you will, but for a person that dedicated his life to pursue justice for all, Alvin Sykes is a living legend. Alvin’s tireless energy has impacted all Americans. As with any effective activist, Alvin’s call to duty required dedication and faith, coupled with nerves of steel.
Alvin is a person commanding a relentless attitude to research and uncover bureaucratic layers. Only Alvin can recount the innumerable times people and systems attempted to dissuade, block, and discourage him. Further intimidation tactics would try to diffuse this activist’s passion for forensics to no avail. Alvin might pause to regroup, but history shows this soldier has never quit. Read More
Coronavirus Pandemic Further Illustrates Black Community Need to Circulate the Dollar Within

Coronovirus pandemic further amplifies the necessity for African-American communities to circulate and re-circulate the dollar in its community. All of the enormous panic spending African-Americans have contributed went straight to other communities.

And there is an unpaid debt owed for that complexity brought to bare on the community and its descendant’s progeny. In the interim African-Americans must move forward with a vengeance. READ MORE

It’s Good Ole Common Sense Time
Remember when you were taught to use common sense? Is common sense a lost human attribute or is another synonymous word or phrase used for the same descriptive?
For the sake of clarity, common sense is your natural ability to make good judgments and to behave in a practical and sensible way.
When factoring information coming out about COVID 19 virus other than hygiene and quarantine imperatives, use some common sense in all your decisions regarding everything. Why? Because the experts don’t have many answers at this point. READ MORE
Honey Pot Push Back Nothing New
For several days, now turning into weeks, I heard the rumblings about the Target Honey Pot marketing response. Since I am not a user of feminine hygiene products the commercials did not register with me, until my attention was directed to the racist response to the ads and the shelf space allotted Honey Pot at Target stores.
I understand what founder Bea Dixon is experiencing, because I experienced similar circumstances.
We have had and continue to operate businesses; retail, distribution, and manufacturing. My wife and I assembled a team in our businesses and proceeded with various degrees of success. We have had marketing departments within our businesses. We now employ social media campaigns, but have advertised on television, radio, and print media.

Black Women Professionals Scrutinized For Not Culturally Appropriating Their Hair Texture To Assimilate Into a European Appeal
I find it fascinating and appalling in the same breath people want to dictate to African-American women how to wear their hair. In the twenty first century non-black people are still beholden to a slave master interpretation of management.
Three on-air anchors recounted their experiences at news networks, which aren’t always accepting of Black women’s natural hair. A few unresolved corporate complaints and outrageous insults about hair prompted Ms. Noble to speak out, but to no avail. She continued to get harassed by management and was told that the company policy prohibits on-air talent from having “shaggy, unkempt” hair.

Admitting Black Vote Importance
Black voter importance has been elevated to a new level of confession. The Trump campaign is increasing its presence in swing states to target African-American voters.
As part of an ongoing effort to increase Trump’s share of the black vote this fall, the president’s reelection campaign unveiled plans on Wednesday to open a series of “community centers” in empty retail spaces across the U.S. where paid staffers and volunteers will spend the next several months courting black voters with literature, celebrity meet-and-greets and “woke”-branded attire.

A Move Out Of The Mobster Playbook
My and your mobster president outed a juror in the Roger Stone case as being biased. Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who last week sentenced longtime GOP operative Roger Stone to more than three years in prison, on Tuesday expressed concern for the safety of a juror from Stone’s trial after President Donald Trump repeatedly accused her of being biased. This is a move right out of the mobster playbook. Out the juror through intimidation.

Because this particular narration accurately describes the scenario at the house-of-whites AKA White House without the need of some “bloody glove” quip.
It is difficult not to rehash repetitious shenanigans, but the fake acquittal infused Trump and crew with political HGH( human growth hormone). The problem with the use of HGH is it affects the total spectrum anatomically. The positive and negative pathology influence. HGH can increase testosterone as well as influence growth of cancers detected and yet to be detected. READ MORE
Authoritarianism Now Within Reach Of Trump
Apathy cannot be any part of American politics any longer. The clarion call is increasingly being sounded by the American people and foreign governments to reign in Donald Trump and his spineless goons before it’s too late.
America has taken a laxed position about governing politics because previous administrations respected ethical boundaries. Those respected boundaries allowed the republic to function without the decay of an open society with democratic rule of law and attempts to find justice all .
America does not share it borders with hostile adversaries. North America is protected from sneak attacks by oceans on three sides. The United States enjoys all four seasons for pleasurable amounts of time. All of these amenities contribute to the fact actual wars have not been waged on American soil for a very long time.

Roger Stone or John Shaft:
Roger Stone obviously isn’t shy, nor afraid of challenges. He chooses what game he wants to play and at what level of play. Roger Stone is the Trump associate that has attained John Shaft swag. Just when Roger appears to be up against the wall, a power gangster move is made in his behalf.
As many people know it’s good to have friends in high places. In Stone’s case multiple places. He always said he would come out on top and it appears he knew what he was talking about. This present administration plays to win at all cost. Trump is re-affirming his loyalty to Stone for the other mobsters to see Trump’s got their back. In the picture to the right, please note Roger has his woman on his arm, a Bible in hand, and a gotcha smile. Stone is definitely living his best life. READ MORE
Threats: Snoop Dogg Vs Matt Schlapp
Snoop Dogg vigorously rebuked Gayle King and Matt Schlapp asserts Mitt Romney’s ‘Physical Safety’ Would Be At Risk At Conference. Which threat has more credence? Snoop Dogg or a group of white nationalist senators blessed by a mob boss president?

Trump: State Of Schism
Early in the development of this platform I attempted and still make attempts not to overly respond to Trump episodes, but I must briefly mention the most recent State Of The Union. From where I sit the State of the Union can be more accurately described as the State Of Schism.
How does Rush Limbaugh earn an award Medal of Freedom and Tuskegee Airman, Charles McGee honored at State of the Union address and by NASA, receive nothing for his service to his country and valor?
Again, Trumps version of the State Of the Union in reality is the State Of Schism. Every move in this speech has the trappings of a B rated movie. His lies and innuendos continue to be his trademark. READ MORE
Kansas City Chiefs Pull it Off
If any team deserves to win the biggest game of its season, the Kansas City Chiefs is that team.
Quick story: When the Chiefs won the AFL championship in 1969 I was 15 years old. I was working and had saved $2k to put down on a 1970 Hemi Cuda. It was on the showroom floor sporting red paint and a red convertible top.
Of course I was too young to buy and needed a co-signer. The total cost of the car was $4900. So, I convinced my parents to go look at the car, at which time they did. My father a Baptist pastor along with my mother went to the dealership that fateful Saturday morning to get this show on the road, literally. My parents walked in the dealership and the salesperson greeted us.
While my father inspected the car he started directing questions to the car salesman. Things were appearing to be a wrap on the sale until I suppose GOD told my father to ask one last damn question. The Rev. James Frasure Sr asked, ” How fast does this car go?” The smart ass salesman replied, ” Whatever is on the speedometer”. My father quickly countered, “160 MPH?” and with a death knell reply from the salesman, ” Yes sir.” My father looked me square in the eye without saying a word that translated into HELL NO! After his non-verbal rebuttal he verbally said to me, ” Find something else”. At which time we exited the dealership. I then took him to a Jaguar dealership and in frustration he said, “You have one more chance to come up with a reasonable compromise or wait until you are 18.”
I did end up buying a new car that year which was the first year for the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, but it was not a Hemi Cuda by no stretch of the imagination.
Again Congratulations are in order to Kansas City and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant Dies In Helicopter Crash
News about the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash is heart wrenching and profoundly sad. As previously stated, the writer is not a NBA or NFL proponent, but I admire any black person gainfully extracting from any part of Americana.
The lost of his daughter adds to a deeper sense of lost. Finding the words to express such a lost is futile. Kobe was a man that literally had it all. He was 41, had a beautiful family, and all the money anyone could spend several generations forward. READ MORE
Bishop Ervin Sims Jr: In Retrospect
WG: January 15, 2020 PM
Bishop Ervin Sims Jr: A Kansas based community leader, spiritual counselor, and businessman was recently laid to rest today in Kansas City, Kansas. The characteristic of a good leader embellish several qualities which Sims possessed, nurtured, and grew. I witnessed his obvious vision and his practice of intricate planning and execution. With all sizable visions come the effort, reliance, and advocacy of others willing to expedite mission critical tasks of targeted projects to completion.
My wife, Marie Frasure was that advocate and executive operative that assisted Sims in the execution of many of his vision objectives and subsequent missions. From decades of her national board presence on Bread for The World, congressional appointments to the full congress, to the personal relationships of both Republican and Democrat legislators, Marie maneuvered and rallied her accomplishments selflessly as an influencer on local, national, and global stages.

104 Plus Things I need to Understand Series
WG: January 13, 2020 AM
Coming soon is a series of 104 Plus things I need to understand. These series of questions seeking understanding along with the accompanying narratives are substantive. Real life issues pertaining to politics, religion, economics, male/female relationships, historical Afrocentric perspectives, and other realities are now requiring constructive, honest analysis. With the technologies of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality, certain human worker profiles will be deemed useless. A wager is being placed the term discrimination will be rendered as non-applicable, because the position will be automated through one of two technologies.
Some individuals may feel the questions posed as empirical, but that is not the intentions of the writer whatsoever. The urgency for bedrock understandings on critical issues is past due. I am sure the vast amount of people willing to participate and engage the conversation really want this exploration for growth and enlightenment. It’s gonna happen right here and I am sure there will be those that will feel some of the questions posed have some type of personal ax to grind, but that is not the case to any degree. One of InnerKwest’s missions is to be a platform free from the mass harvesting capabilities of the social media giants. From the client side they add entertainment and social connectivity, but at an oppressive, manipulative, and grossly intrusive cost. Our constructive dialogue shouldn’t be a big profit center for others without comparable compensation.
So, as the Temptations song says ‘”Get Ready Cause Here I come, I’m On My Way” and soon. READ MORE
Euphorical “MAGA Church” Hit With Condemnation
WG: January 10, 2020 PM CDT
Evangelicals are being raked over the theological coals by the anti-Trump Republican group; The Lincoln Project. The MAGA Church is metaphoric, but describes the cultist devotion awarded to Trump.
The well documented supporter profile of the present oval office regime will drink the kool-aid even with dead canaries laying everywhere. If Jesus returned today standing opposite of Lucifer, with Lucifer dawning a mangled, ripped-up Trump costume suit, supporters would choose the starkly revealed fallen angel from heaven boasting leadership residence in hell.
Facebook Aiding and Abetting Misinformation
WG: January 9, 2020 PM CDT
Late last year Trump and Zuckerburg had a private White House lunch. The resulting conversation has yet to be divulged and seems to be cloaked in secrecy. Now just days after this supposed impromptu lunch Facebook and its upper-management have a divergent narrative as opposed to the replies and promises made to congress earlier.
In a memo obtained by The New York Times and publicly posted, Facebook executive, Andrew Bosworth says the company’s platform was responsible for electing Donald Trump president in 2016, but he warned employees against using the company’s power to stop Trump’s reelection in 2020.
African-American Art Sale
WG: January 4, 2019 PM
Republican state senator Scott Allen circulated a resolution recognizing 10 historical figures for celebration. But six of those who’d been active in Wisconsin’s Underground Railroad, helping southern slaves escape to freedom turned out to be white, according to the State Journal.
The choice provoked a backlash from local black lawmakers, who said Allen circumvented the state’s legislature’s black caucus from choosing how to honor the contributions of black Americans.
Taylor, a black Milwaukee Democrat, asked why a white politician would be leading the selection, which includes six white abolitionists, four black slaves and unnamed members of the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Indians.
Republicans are consistent in their pursuit of distraction and show of GOP unity. For more on this latest attack on Black relevance read more here.
State of Some Kind of Emergency
WG: December 30, 2019 AM
Texas councilman who declared a ‘Black State of Emergency‘ could face recall election. Now let’s put on the brakes for a moment. There definitely is some kind of an emergency in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. On top of the white cops killing innocent at home Black Texans, two were killed at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas. Not to minimize the tragedy, but the church is prominently white and the associate pastor shot and killed is black (Anton “Tony” Wallace) from a notable family. Again, all this happened in a town called White Settlement, Texas. The town population is 18,000 with a 5% Native American minority.
Sounds like some type of an emergency to me. I have loved ones in the DFW area and the events that have transpired in the last 18 months could have easily involved them. It appears when Black elected officials speak-up on disparaging topics, the system becomes engaged in ousting the discomfort. The same toggle is happening in St. Louis prosecuting attorney’s office which is lead by Kimberly M. Gardner. She is the Circuit Attorney (chief prosecutor) for the City of St. Louis, Missouri. The forces that be want her out of St. Louis.
Since the Micheal Brown shooting in August 9, 2014 and the subsequent civil unrest that followed, many St. Louis black activist have been murdered under highly questionable circumstances. Say what you will, but there is reason for Black people to feel a sense of emergency. There are systemic forces attempting to squelch black people, mentally, physically, spiritually, and economically. Someone must sound the alarms.
Seven Principles of Kwanzaa
WG: December 26, 2019 – Happy Kwanzaa!!
The time has again arrived for African-American communities and others that celebrate the culture, to re-energize the dedication propelling the tenets of Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is a seven-day, non-religious holiday observed in the US, meant to honor African Americans’ ancestral roots. The celebration lasts until January 1, but the Kwanzaa mindset is an actionable set of on-going conscious priorities. InnerKwest℠ will emphasize the 7 tenets of Kwanzaa, Sunday through Saturday all 52 weeks of the year, starting with Umoja on Sunday.
The name comes from the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanza,” which means “first fruits.” READ MORE
What’s An Hour Of Your Time Worth?
WG: December 22, 2019 AM CDT
How do you regard your time? Is your time and health treated as your greatest assets? I pose this question not to get an answer from you, but maybe for you to pause and answer the question with sober honesty in the private mansion occupied by your mind and spirit residence.
What is your definition of a “Good Time”?
I recently awoke to headlines of 13 shot in Chicago at a party. This happens far too often in African-American communities. I understand the issues associated with Black people are complex. Some would argue to the contrary, but how and where African-Americans collectively find themselves has been centuries in the making. I will publish an opinion essay in 2020 on how, when, where, and who we are in an upcoming narrative; “I America“.
Is too much time spent looking for love in all the wrong places? Is ample time spent pursuing personal fulfillment and discovering purpose? Is your entertainment quotient a cover-up attempting to offset disappointments and life challenges? Is sports mania, cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, sexual prowess, and other feel good verbs tallying up a receipt worthy of your time spent and health risk? Again, I have my answers and receipts I am reviewing. I don’t need your receipts, just mine.
Do you treat people the way you want to be treated mentally, spiritually, physically, and economically? This all circles back to time spent and the quality of the time rendered. Please remember health is like a battery. No matter how long you sustain a certain quality of life, at some point in time that health battery will degrade. Place your health, time, and quality trustworthy relationships in high regard, because once that particular capital is spent there is no renewal or reclamation, only memory breadcrumbs will remain.

Trump and Putin Ride and Die
When I was a child Nikita Khrushchev was the leader of the Soviet Union which later turned into Russia. Then came Mikhail Gorbachev and now Putin. I remember when Obama first visited Russia after becoming president, no one in the Russian parliament would shake his hand.
Now we have an impeached president by the name of Donald Trump and his ride and die is Vladimir Putin. All three of the aforementioned Russian statesmen were the avowed enemy of the United States of America. One of the reasons for the MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) strategy was because of Russia.
Putin came to his ride and die partner’s aid by stating his take on the impeachment.
“First they accuse Trump of collusion with Russia, then it turns out there was no collusion so this cannot be used as a basis for impeachment,” Putin said in an end-of-year news conference Thursday. “Now, they’ve come up with the idea he put pressure on Ukraine.” He added, sounding eerily Trumplike, “This is nothing but a continuation of an internal political struggle, with the party that lost the election, the Democratic party, trying to reach its goal by different means.”
Never before have we experienced an open Russian operative, which vowed the destruction of America, allowed to snuggle up and be factored in from the executive branch. Trump, McConnell, and other GOP members should be investigated for treason. It appears our executive branch, DOJ, and the Senate has been highly compromised. Stay tuned, more to come.
POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME
POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME
As a result of twelve years of quantitative and qualitative research Dr. DeGruy has developed her theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, and published her findings in the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome– America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”. The book addresses the residual impacts of generations of slavery and opens up the discussion of how the black community can use the strengths we have gained in the past to heal in the present.
