Senator Kamala Harris announced that she is running for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President. Thought that it was coming….and so I wasn’t surprised to wake up on Sunday to this foolishness:
What is this foolishness?
She really is a simpleton.
Folks had her number, though.
Along those lines,Kim Foxx, the Cook County States Attorney that brought charges not only against the officer who murdered Laquan McDonald, but also the officers who falsified reports for said murderer.
Or, the young man who just won in Missouri, and fired the prosecutor who wouldn’t bring charges against Mike Brown’s executioner.
Or, I’m not supposed to be happy for the new DA in Philadelphia, while not Black, has different ideas when it comes to the Prison Industrial Complex…
Or, I’m not supposed to be pleased that the entire judiciary in Harris County, Texas- the state’s largest county, has had a complete turnaround in representation in November 2018…
Or, the same for Hinds County, Mississippi…
Folks get it twisted when they see Black people protesting the police. Like that means we’re against all laws, and have no use for police or prosecutors…
Not true. We have use for the law…we just want it to be applied EQUALLY….
EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER THE LAW…
That means something to the Black community.
So, these simple azz simon attacks on Senator Kamala Harris because she was a Prosecutor and Attorney General, as if that disqualifies her..
No, will she have to defend her record, absolutely. Have no problem with it.
But, her existence in those jobs IS NOT disqualifying.
No less than 2Pac said this about Black people and their relationship to law enforcement:
Oh, yeah, and this too:
I don’t know how Senator Harris will do in the Democratic Primaries, but this nonsense of her being a Prosecutor is supposed to get me and other Black folk to discount her….Nope.
Pay Black people reparations for their enslaved ancestors working and enduring untold sufferings for over 200 + years for free just like you’ll pay federal workers back pay for working for free. Time to pay up!
If someone at NBC had at least as much common sense as a jackass, they would NOT DO THIS.
How long must we endure this suffering, Lord?
Bravo!! OG Pelosi!
There is a culture of racism in this country. The country was founded upon it. Genocide & Enslavement. That’s why a person like Trump can get into the Oval Office and wreak havoc on the country & the leaders allow it. They are elevating & glorifying racism
When Senator Sanders (Ind) puts a (Dem) behind his citation as a Senator, then I will listen to him and his supporters – until then, he belongs in same box as Jill Stein and Ralph Nader. Box of also rans who helped hand country to GOP dolts and shills for KKK, White Nationalists, Anti-Vaxers, Anti-woman, Pro-Russian and other dictator wannabes!
McConnell rule #1-#99 do, say anything to promote himself and his mate Trump and diss anything that a Democrat says or does! Rule #100 don’t do anything if you don’t get bribed/paid lots to say or do it!
Silverman at BJ has done a second post about the lies of Dolt45 and The Turtle on the Immigration Fake Ass Proposal:
And, the damages to DACA are broken down into a fraction. In essence, they want to end DACA, and replace it with something that everyone already in DACA wouldn’t be guaranteed of getting into the new program.
Nothing but a goddamned fraud!!
They are sooo disgusting
Lord, throw me a line.
This is just too damn much.
Maybe she should ask the racist little creep about this too…
A tragedy in four acts:
-Army can’t meet recruiting goals
-Pentagon kills immigrant recruit program that drew 10,400+ enlistments
-Army tells NYT it needs to be more creative about recruiting
-Pentagon “pleased” its narrowing its own enlistment pool https://t.co/MUpUqwHJC5

RUMBLE – airing this week on PBS / Independent Lens. Excellent program, informative, and it rocks (literally).
So now Trump will bully his way into the Capitol to make the State of the Union speech?
Tell it, ABL👏👏
Haley had a seafood project and her grandpa made Gumbo for her. He can cook too. He made a huge pot. Daughter is sending me some. Mmmmmmm…
Oh, yes. How I would love some of that seafood gumbo. And how about some bread pudding with whiskey sauce for dessert?
I’m waiting on it, Liza. Josh says it’s so good. Haley knew her grandpa could make it, so that’s why she said she’d bring Gumbo. LOL
Gumbo sooo good. Chicken, sausage, shrimp, crabs……..
Silverman at BJ has a breakdown of how much Dolt45 and The Turtle LIED in the ‘compromise’ Dolt45 put forth.
The Senate Majority Leader and the President Lied About the Contents of Their Immigration and Border Security Compromise Bill
Please tweet out about this horrible bill. if you can add a link back to Silverman’s post where he breaks it down even further, I would appreciate it. It’s a damn lie. And, of course, the point is to prevent NON-WHITE IMMIGRATION.
Ms. Jordan was my representative briefly when I lived in Houston.
James Baldwin: I think the American white republic has to ask itself why it was necessary for them to invent the n****r
“James Baldwin thinks MLK’s dream can be fulfilled if we all work together…”
He might not think that if he were around today.
I sure as hell don’t. Whatever idealism I once had has been lost in that long tunnel of time.
Just look around.

Skimmed through the GOP’s funding/wall/temp DACA & TPS bill, and this will (and should) get zero votes from Democrats.
It makes it so Central American minors are ineligible for asylum if they don’t apply at a processing center (to be established) in Central America.

Given that the Covington Catholic High School students think they’re mature enough to understand pregnancy, abortion, childbirth, and parenting — and to tell women what we should do with our bodies — it’d be great if the media would stop coddling them like they’re little boys.

Iowa Dems consider “tele-caucusing” as they contemplate massive turnout. “We have to prepare like it’s Armageddon,” said one party chair. “The floors are going to buckle,” a Des Moines reported added.
Yeah, Regina King🤗🤗
Yeah, Ruth Carter 👏👏👏👏

@itgurl_29 @keethers Seeing a lot of “black folk” coming across the TL that I ain’t never seen before. Makes me wonder about some of these folks’ Russian fluency… #JustSayin.
Isn’t Mitch McTurtle is involved in this PR firm?

The Covington Catholic boys harrassed my friends and I before the incident with Nathan Phillips even happened. I’m tired of reading things saying they were provoked by anyone else other than their own egos and ignorance 🤦🏼♀️

It’s what we use to protect our schools.
Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) Tweeted:
The cultists are already screaming that Kamala Harris “is not a progressive.” But these are the same cultists who are insisting that right wing conservative Tulsi Gabbard is a progressive. We were up against this cult lunacy in 2016 and it clearly hasn’t gone away.

@lisasharper Here is a picture of boys from Covington Catholic High School taunting a black player from another team in 2015. Many of them wearing black face. This school is a hotbed of racism in Northern Kentucky.

The right’s gaslighting of the maga kid video is right out of spousal abuse 101. “No you didn’t see what you saw, you must have been mistaken. You’re hysterical and out of control.”
Good Morning, Everyone 😄😄😄
