        The first time I saw his attorney I suspected that Martese Johnson would be re-arranging his life goals and it does appear that an activist has been born. He already has the writing skills.

      So upsetting to read about the injustice based on lies that the author’s brother endured and the rest of the family faced. So upsetting and frightening.

        People are telling their stories. It’s like the floodgates have opened, but I still think it’s impossible to judge the depth and breadth of the crisis. We just know that it is really, really bad.

      This is Criminal. iI’s the systematic school to prison pipeline And this one of the primary reasons the white shooters & killers have been allowed to shoot & kill.

    Journalists Attend Private Koch Brothers Gathering, But Agree Not To Name Donors

    NEW YORK — Several news organizations gained rare access Saturday into a private gathering of influential Republican donors hosted by Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, a nonprofit organization backed by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch.

    But journalists covering the three-day event, held at a luxurious California resort, had to agree to an unusual restriction. They weren’t allowed to report the names of any of the 450 donors attending without the individual’s permission.

    The Washington Post’s Matea Gold disclosed in a Saturday night piece that her paper was “one of nine news organizations allowed in to cover the traditionally private confab, on the condition that the donors present not be named without their permission.” Politico’s Ken Vogel also noted the ground rules in his story published around the same time…

      She’s one of Hillary’s cheerleaders. Bernie Sanders has said he has no intention of “attacking” Hillary Clinton. But just wait until all the right wing gas bags start attacking Sanders for being a “sosh-list” and that gets picked up by low-information Democratic voters. Do you think any Democratic leaders will defend Sanders?

      I already hate the political landscape that is forming. And I fear for this nation.

      Well, they can’t govern the country so they figure a war with Iran is the right way to occupy themselves while they feed at the government trough like so many hogs.
