A separate article discussed US Justice Department indictments against 14 current and former FIFA officials.
Blatter wasn’t named but isn’t out of the woods. US prosecutors indicated what’s announced isn’t “the final chapter. It is not over,” they said.
FBI Director James Comey indicated “work will continue until all of the corruption is uncovered and a message is sent around the world.”
Swiss Attorney General spokesman Andre Marty said Blatter “could be questioned. (E)very person involved in the allocation of the World Cups might be questioned.”
What’s going on appears more than what meets the eye. US officials want Russia’s status as World Cup 2018 host country rescinded.
Israel wants Palestinian efforts to suspend it from FIFA competition quashed – because of unacceptable abuses committed against its footballers.
Blatter may be today’s Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was IMF managing director from November 2007 – May 2011. Washington wanted him ousted for urging austerity conditions imposed on countries receiving IMF loans be softened. He publicly opposed making ordinary people pay the price for financial crisis conditions caused by banksters and other corporate crooks. He was also favored to be elected French president over America’s choice.
He was set up, unjustly framed in a sex scandal. Washington got corporatist Christine Lagarde appointed IMF chief. Right-wing Nicolas Sarkozy became French president (*).
(*) read : A left-wing opponent, largely outpassed by Dominique Strauss Kahn, François Hollande, became French president. Nicolas Sarkozy, the man behind DSK candidacy was downed by an international man-hunting campaign led by the medias worldwide corporation. As a firsthand witness of this « political public and collective assassination », I seize at immediately, when the attempt started during the 2012 Obama 2 presidential campaign and knew how to respond. I just ask myself this : « where had I seen this operating fully before » ? Answer : in France. A hidden panel seems to be ruling democratic elections manipulating the people through the medias channels and puppets. Not only. DSK ambush is another tactic.
It is worth noticing, for the same invisible panel is presiding the Nobel Price Award – in exchange for what from the awardees ? That is the Question, Shakespeare would have said. « To Be or not to Be »converted either in advance or afterwards, recognizing « gay marriage », obliging anybody else to say « yes » through « hidden persuasion methods » including the use of mass medias to spread the « word » and to present it as « civil rights or progressive » ; Irish referendum apart.
Gay marriage is the visible aspect of the iceberg, that is why it matters. Being gay doesn’t ; it is a personal choice concerning freedoms. You got married before God and the People. When the people was not concerted, where is the validity of this marriage ? Mayors are outpassing their prerogatives – given by an election – with gay marriage attributions, Irish referendum apart. The Constitution is hijacked.
Tit for tat, FIFA’s inquiry and the desire to rescind the decision allowing Russia the World Cup 2018 had brought the corruption process over the 2009 Nobel Price Award forward, THE DAY AFTER. What is behind the 2009 Nobel price deal ? Gay marriage ? Attacking Syria ? Killing Colonel Gaddafi ? Invading Ukraine ?
Go ahead with Global Research reading.
Is history repeating? Instead of a sex scandal, its FIFA corruption with Washington overstepping by acting outside its legal jurisdiction.
FIFA officials charged aren’t US citizens. They don’t live in America. Blatter is a Swiss national. In June 1998, he was elected FIFA president.
He was reelected three times. He’s up for a fourth on Friday, May 29.
Britain’s Tory MP Damian Collins called him “the most despicable man in sport.” He urged new votes for 2018 and 2022 World Cup host nations – challenging current ones Russia and Qatar respectively.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron called for Blatter’s resignation. He supports his opponent – Jordanian Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein.
He’s FIFA vice president for Asia. He has close Western ties. In January, he announced he’d challenge Blatter for FIFA’s top post.
In response to US corruption charges, he said “(w)e cannot continue with the crisis in FIFA, a crisis that has been ongoing and is not just relevant to the events of today.”
“FIFA needs leadership that…accepts responsibility for its actions and does not pass the blame.”
European football association UEFA head Michel Platini called for Blatter to step down.
He wants Friday’s election postponed. So does French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. Platini blustered “(w)e cannot continue like this.”
If Blatter is reelected he threatened UEFA would consider pulling national teams out of FIFA.
“(A) majority” of UEFA associations will vote for Ali,” he said, if elections proceed.
English Football Association (FA) chairman Greg Dyke said “Blatter has to go. He either has to go through a resignation, or…be out-voted or we have to find a third way.”
“(D)amage…done to FIFA…can’t be rebuilt while (he’s) there so EUFA has got to try to force him out.”
Credit card giant Visa said it would “reassess our partnership (if) swift and immediate steps to address (ongoing) issues aren’t taken. It stopped short of calling for Blatter’s resignation.
FIFA sponsors Adidas and Coca-Cola called for its reform. Hyundai Motor and Anheuser-Busch expressed concern. McDonald’s said it’s monitoring the situation.
Long US knives got Strauss-Kahn ousted on fabricated charges to install Washington’s favorite.
FIFA corruption isn’t new. Is Blatter heading for the same fate using extrajudicial FBI indictments as a pretext?

And, exceptionally, a message over the Clinton Foundation action in Africa.
Chelsea and I recently returned from a trip to Africa where we saw the results of the work that you support through the Clinton Foundation. We make this trip almost every year to see the work our Foundation, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), and CGI partners do, and the people we’re able to help.
As you all know, it’s the political season in America, so the purpose and impact of the efforts your support makes possible has largely been ignored in recent coverage of the Foundation. But we are and always have been a non-partisan, inclusive foundation with lots of support from and involvement by people across the political spectrum and governments from right to left, all committed to our creative solutions-centered work. That’s why I am writing to you and our hundreds of thousands of other supporters in the U.S. and around the world to let you know how grateful I am for your support, and for our staff and our partners, and how determined I am that our work will continue.
Next week, Donna Shalala will join the Foundation as President and CEO. She will inherit a senior leadership who have years of experience in the NGO and private sectors, and a talented, dedicated, diverse staff, all deeply committed to keep doing the kind of inspiring work we saw in Africa. We will also continue to look for ways to improve our reporting systems so that we can operate as accurately, efficiently, and transparently as possible – a goal to which we have been committed since day one.
I started the Clinton Foundation when I left the White House to continue working on issues I had long cared about, where I believed I could still make an impact. I grew up believing that if I worked hard enough I could build a rewarding life, and entered public service to create more opportunities for others and to empower them to seize those opportunities – or as we say, to have better life stories. That same purpose has driven our work at the Clinton Foundation – whether we’re helping smallholder farmers in Africa increase their yields or supporting women entrepreneurs in Latin America as they build better lives for their families.
From the very beginning, the Clinton Foundation has intentionally taken a different approach to addressing global challenges. Except to spur recovery in the aftermath of disasters like the South Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and, over a longer period, in Haiti, we don’t primarily make grants to other organizations. Instead, we implement and organize projects ourselves by bringing partners together, including governments, businesses, labor unions, philanthropies, other NGOs, and the people we’re trying to help, and join them on the ground to solve problems faster, better, and at lower cost. We strive for innovative approaches to problem solving that are sustainable and yield strong results. With each of our initiatives, we try both to change lives today and offer a model for meaningful and replicable future action. The best way to do that usually starts with forming inclusive networks of all stakeholders. We incorporate data and metrics into the Foundation’s work and encourage others to help scale-up or replicate our successful projects wherever they can touch more lives.
My work with the Clinton Foundation over the past 14 years has been one of the most rewarding endeavors of my life, as every day I see how, with your support, our programs change lives. While in Africa, I met many of the people we’re helping build better futures, provide for their families, and strengthen their communities. Their lives tell the real stories of the Clinton Foundation, and they are worth hearing.
In Tanzania, I visited Wazia Chawala. She is a farmer and a single mother raising seven children. She is also one of 85,000 people in Tanzania, Malawi, and Rwanda participating in our Clinton Development Initiative’s Anchor Farm program. The program operates commercial farms and partners with local smallholder farmers to provide them with access to high-quality, low-cost seed and fertilizer, training in improved agricultural techniques, and transportation to market. Participants have more than doubled their yields on average, increased their incomes by even greater margins, and dramatically improved their quality of life. When I met Wazia, she told me how her increased productivity has helped her improve her home and keep her seven children in school. She is forging her own path out of poverty with a system that is life-changing, sustainable, and replicable. What is working for 85,000 farmers could work for millions.
In Tanzania, I also visited a dispensary run by CHAI that is helping to make life-saving vaccines more affordable and readily available to people in rural areas, where 70 percent of the country’s people live. In addition to negotiating price reductions for the pneumonia and rotavirus vaccines, CHAI is using innovative solar-powered refrigerators to preserve the vaccines – which are only effective when stored in cool temperatures – in the remote areas of the country that lack electricity. I met with several mothers who have had their children vaccinated through the program, which is saving 11,000 lives annually, including one woman who walked twelve miles to get her baby vaccinated for the first time. Stories like that are why I started this work, and why I am more committed than ever to continuing it.
As I often say, there can be a big difference between the headlines and the trend lines. We mostly hear about the headlines – but the trend lines can tell us more about what is happening in most people’s lives. When I look at what the Foundation has accomplished over the last 14 years, I believe we are helping to move the trend lines in the right direction. 9.9 million people in more than 70 countries now have access to low-cost, life-saving HIV/AIDS medicines through the Clinton Health Access Initiative; 16 million kids in more than 28,000 schools in the U.S. now have healthier food and more physical activity options; and members of the Clinton Global Initiative have made 3,200 commitments that have already improved 430 million lives in more than 180 countries.
That’s the real story of the Clinton Foundation – people coming together across traditional divides to help others live up to their full potential. We are grateful that you have been a part of it.
We’ll keep trying to reach our goals faster, better, and in the most cost-effective way. We’ll continue to strive for accuracy and transparency and, most important, keep working on the mission and measuring our progress every step of the way. That commitment to impact, innovation, and efficiency is what you expect from us, and what we want to deliver for years to come.
Thank you for your support of the Clinton Foundation. Together, we can build a future we can all be proud to share.
I encourage you to visit clintonfoundation.org/our-work to learn more about the way the Clinton Foundation works and our life-changing programs around the world.
About the Clinton Foundation The Clinton Foundation convenes businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for women and girls, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change.
Bonus: about shootings and squeaky clean images.
Here is a lesson on photography. I’ve the chance to have learnt « Photography » as an art during my universities studies. I’m so proud of them and if I had an estimable treasurus from France, it is precisely THAT ONE. Studying arts was a prestige. Video, cinema, TV shows and spots, litterature, language, theatre, photography, painting, sculpture, architecture, music, speeches, and I forgot other artistic patterns was an amazing Grace.
So, when I shoot a picture, including myself or when I pick up one, the important thing is « capturing the soul and mind of the target ». I describe myself as an epidermic person. My emotions and state of mood are kinds of pencils for my look. So, from day one to day seven, I never look the same. Only my soul remains permanent.
That said, never forget photography is an art and must reflect beauty first. You and me have got many defaults on our body – some are insulted for monkeys black ass, other are insulted for flat butts. But monkey’s ass are firm whereas the flat ones lack that firmness. It depends where you stand : some ugly aspects can end up so sexy, such as big bobs, for instance. So it is not useful to bring the uglyness forward, particularly when you know that plastic surgery can do some miracle. Isn’t it ?
Wrinkles can be removed. Belly flattened and clean up from stretchmarks you can earn after difficult pregnancies or gaining weigh and losing it, bobs and butts ups, thighs reduced, ribs cut, size reduced, injections, draining session, etc… Add some heroin or coke and you nail it.
Life is Beautiful. And sometimes Magic. The secret of a squeaky clean picture starts with a perfect camera and a beautiful [authentic] soul to capture. Something unexpected can happened, that is the secret of the art of photography!
Now, how you decide to pick that one and not that other one smiling and telling you « take me please » ? Ah han…
Since Yesterday, there is a right-wing party in France, named The Republicans, like the one in USA. French Republicans are born.
A leaked letter dated May 19th and sent by the Chairman of Ukraine’s parliament, Vladimir Groysman, to the chargé d’affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Oslo Norway, thanks her for “the efforts you have made to have Petro Oleksiyovych Poroshenko nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize,” but continues: “Still we consider your assurances of support by the two members of the Nobel Committee as insufficient,” because there are five members of the Committee, and the support of 3 of them is necessary.
“We expect further efforts aimed at shifting the position of Berit Reiss-Andersen, Inger-Marie Ytterhorn and especially that of the Chair of the Nobel Committee Kaci Kullman Five. Regarding the latter, we recommend that you take advantage of the information you are going to receive from Germany. Your colleagues in Berlin have assured us that the dossier will soon be delivered to the U.S. Embassy in Oslo. It is of utmost importance for Mr. Poroshenko to have firm guarantees that he will be awarded the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize, since it could highlight the unanimous support of Ukrainian integrity by the democratic community of the world. Assistant Secretary of State Viktoria Nuland has highly estimated your job during her visit to Kyiv.”
AFTER FIFA SUSPICIONS THE NOBEL PRICE AWARDINGS? CAN’T BELIEVE THAT.

How is the Power of silencedoing today ? And Yesterday ? What about tomorrow ? What is the end of the road ? Here is a brief roundup.
First of all, concerning SEC Nomination.
Credo. « President Obama is poised to nominate two new commissioners to the powerful Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), but according to reports his shortlist consists of two corporate lawyers with no track record of being Wall Street reformers.1
If the president wants to show he’s serious about cracking down on fraud and abuse, he needs to pick a nominee like current SEC Commissioner Kara Stein. Known as “Elizabeth Warren’s ally on the inside,” Stein is the one SEC commissioner who hasn’t been afraid to take on big banks, and had a proven track record of reform before being nominated.2
But instead, SEC Chair Mary Jo White is reportedly pushing President Obama to help “dilute Stein’s influence” by appointing someone closer to Wall Street.3 We need to speak up before President Obama makes his decision – and demand another nominee just like Commissioner Stein.
Petition to President Obama: « Nominate strong, independent voices with proven records of reform to fill the two open seats on the Securities and Exchange Commission, looking to current Commissioner Kara Stein as the model of a tough reformer who puts Main Street first. »
Add your name:
Second.Another train-wreck on the Horizon. Read the Global Research and get the confirmation of the Amtrak car crash-like reported in our previous post.
From Global Research. Newly-Declassified U.S. Government Documents: The West Supported the Creation of ISIS.
In other words, the powers supporting the Syrian opposition – the West, our Gulf allies, and Turkeywantedan Islamic caliphate in order to challenge Syrian president Assad.
Looking at maps recently produced by the Western media and Western policy think tanks, it can be seen clearly that Al Qaeda/ISIS is streaming out of NATO and US ally territory, forming up in these two safe havens, and aimed both at the Syrian government and Iran.
With financial and military assistance from Washington and its allies, rendered in order to eliminate the regime in Syria, unwanted by the West, the ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ and ‘Jabhat al-Nusra’ were created.
Despite the fact that the rise of an Islamic State was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, including the fall of Mosul and Ramadi, support from the US-coalition to the Syrian opposition continued to manifest, leading to the conclusion that this was either the expressed intent, or an accepted byproduct of these policy decisions.
Syria is Obama’s war – naked aggression by any standard using IS and other takfiri terrorists as US proxy foot soldiers.
EVERYTHING IS FORGIVEN AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED
When we were advocating for Syria, we were far from knowing all this and how the issue was so important to America. Sorry. The question is What is Syrian leader crime apart from the grotesque Western pretense characterizing any leader against their Imperialism as a Dictator. According to the narrative, Lybia was a dictatorSHIP. So was Saddam Hussein killed without a serious motive. Some are deeply regretting now.Nevertheless, Assad is still in the Western crosshairs. It becomes Shakespearien to distinguish the Terrorists from the Others. Crossfires.
Where the Hell is this World heading ? Is anybody in command or are we embarked in another TITANIC BOAT LIKE ?
This was not what I was expecting to speak about today…
Since then, more than 1,000 people, including you, have signed on to support the Agenda, and spread the word about what we are doing to lift the floor for those who are struggling, fight for racial and economic justice, and champion a tax system that rewards work instead of just wealth. But we need your help to keep growing.
In the last 24 hours we have witnessed two more big progressive moments. First, the City of Los Angeles voted to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, improving the lives of millions in the city’s workforce. And last night, progressive champion Jim Kenney won a landslide victory in the Democratic Primary for the Mayor of Philadelphia.
There is a progressive movement happening in this country, and we must continue to build upon this momentum.
Second, as I left you yesterday with the SFR question, see the outcome today :
This afternoon, I received a texto from them saying that « they have sent a letter to me to end the contract, asking me to call them back at the number I couldn’t reach for days ». So is business going in France. Don’t talk or you’ll be subjected to all kind of threats and strenghts pressure. I laugh at this misery. I’ve passed the age of fear. And, I will no longer make the mistake I made entering America off-guard.
I’m clear eye and will never bow down in front of malicious conducts or people and guess what ? France is mired with this null people hired from the backdoor through underground channels. I called those, rats. If the nation is breathless, it is easy to understand : lots of larbins have been hired. For them to survive, they have to steal, cheat, insult, threat and organised themselves into a gang of social terror against immigrants or those trying to tell the truth of that Lying System.
In France, SFR has lost 500,000 clients, due do poor services, during this first quarter. But, apparently, they are going worldwide and France is the least of their interests. Let it be. After all, nobody cares.
After a month of zero services, after promising them to be operative one week later, after signing with them, I expected them to come and say « yes, we apologize for the disturbances and for our shortcomings and we are doing our best to respond to your complaints ». No, this is not french. French used to be Great. Now, there are just as mean as you could not begin to imagine. Corrupt and mediocre. The fact is this is now being debated in public stage and a dismayed french people are discovering the truth. What brought us there ? Nobody can answer. Collaboration is a gangrena. And guess who is the more susceptible to enter Collaborationist scheme ?
In 1981, France voted for a former collaborator of Vichy gov. as president. The collaborationist System was reinstated and is still operative. « Who is Charlie » ?
This is the moment I’m going to receive all kind of ads to talk about my father, my mother’s figure like, lying inside a coffin as seen lately at Yahoo, all sorts of sneaked attacks. I piss on all this poor System. Superbly. People who are doing this are the same searching videos on my laptop where they certainly get the video of my mum lying in the coffin. Cursed are them. They can not live without sucking others people blood. Those are vampires. I stop at Yahoo while checking my email box. I’m going to move overthere progressively and redirected my emails elsewhere.
I told you, Martin Luther King asked me « why it took me so long to be here » ? And I couldn’t answer, because I had to tell a story of being lost somewhere during 33 years — for such a long time -30 in France and those spent inside Brasseries du Cameroon, led by France. The first moment you enter France, they will tell you « don’t do this », « be kind », blablabla blablabla. Until you find out that those are liars and cheaters bearing one mission : misleading you or get you into corruption with them. Corruption include Prostitution, the highway for promotion in France. You don’t need me to prove it. It is bright and clear.
NEVER TRUST A FRENCH MAN. NEVER.
Ask Russia or Nigeria discovering who was behind arms supplying by a disguised Helicopter to Boko Haram. Ask the EU about migrants quotas headache France created in the first place.
That is why I came back from America, from my Transatlantic traveling nearly dead. And, frankly, without the assistance of King, Martin Luther, Gandhi alike and President Kennedy, beyond the tomb, I could have died in Washington. Clearly, my death was planned to take place there. I was sure and certain of that, the moment the car crashed with me inside. When the Amtrak derailed – after pointing my finger at the train – I got the confirmation of the plan. The day of this accident, when I managed to get out of the car, using the tiny space to escape, I looked at the scene and, INTUITIVELY I felt something like a malaise, a lie, a voice telling me « OK, was this the plan ? » « Sending a truck as a weapon to kill you » ?
Was it the reason why, during the Charlie Events, CNN knew I was just next door to them, but didn’t ask me to talk about this, as a French in knowledge with French politics and present in Atlanta ? Do you call this profesionnalism, journalism or politics ? Yes, I’m not pro-gay and this is a case of total dismissal by the medias occupied by Gays and held hostage by gay propaganda. Yes, I didn’t OK America attempt to occupy Ukraine nor that other consisting of destituting an elected president, by a coup. This is not the idea we have for the Leadership of America in the World, especially when Barack Obama, a black president has been overwelmingly elected to change the traumatizing World Governance led by America. He promised he will change this, during his 2008 triumphant campaign.
Frankly, while looking the scene of drama – the car crash – near the Potomac – We were heading back to Prince George County (Maryland), after a brief visit to the Georges Washington Monument – Central Washington. The day was snowy. I remember using the public cabines as toilet and the dirtiness inside was just appaling. Next to the White House and to the Pennsylvania avenue, this shit…. I kept voiceless. It was looking like a bad dream.
Inside the G.W. Hospital, I was thinking, « yes, this is a big lesson. Had someone told you a plan to kill you could go on with president Obama doing nothing and just under his window – should I say His watch ? – I would have said » I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E ». I was blind and stubbornly naive. This gamble consisting to use a black man as a weapon to kill, enslave, dispossess or impoverish his alter ego, sister or brother goes back to the Slavery period, that is 4 centuries ago.
In 2012, the System working in France and in the US decided to move this president from his seat. Everything was wrapped up for the great symbolic murder. I weighed in with all my expertise and educational backgroung and we won it. In a sense, I reclaim this second Barack Obama presidential mandate as mine. And deep inside him and around him, he knows/they know I’m right. It requires one thing : Honesty. That I came in America, he overlooked me, and even more so, he knew about the plan : I was to die in Washington in a car crash. That nearly killed me.
I was due to end the traveling at NY and NJ and possibly get a sight at the Niagara falls. A chance, the snow stopped me. Probably that, there, at New York, the plan would have succeeded, the place is sort of Headquarters for all kind of ambushes. Dominique Strauss Kahn, the former IMF Executive president (Managing Director is the right title) knows about it. Another french man, Richard Descoings died mysteriously in NY, after gay intercourses.
Why am I the Amtrak ?
Firstly, because, each evening, at Atlanta where Charlie events caught me, after writing over Charlie Events, I had to walk to Atlantic Station (Atlanta) to get something to eat. Me and the Amtrak had like a rendez-vous on a bridge. Each time I was crossing the bridge, the Amtrak was under my feet. Crying. We spent a week meeting there. I smelt its odour and its essence and got to know the engine better.
This was happening in the 17th Street. At the time, I was ignoring the White House was located at the 17th Street in Washington. Kind of premonition of the dark thing to come : the accident, 17th Street, the Amtrak, the boom, the darkness.
The « boom » the Amtrak’s travelers have reported, I heard the same strong « boom » when a truck badly hurt our car causing it to change the course and to accelerate dangerously. We crossed the entire highway which – bizarrely – was empty at the very precise moment, for the moment after, the circulation was flooding again. The wall finally stopped the car brutally in a big shock. I could see all this coming helplessly. I just hold myself tightly and faced the event. The car was broken into pieces. I was the only one injured.
Before this boom burst into the air, I heard it inside my brain. I was about to say « be careful » when the real boom resonated. The stage of the crash tells this : the car was supposed to go up the wall and to explode below on the other highway. It would have been something absolutely gigantic for the cameras to SHOW UP. A Big stage for an apocalyptic end. MINE.
Excerpt. Judicial Watch announced on 18 May 2015 that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts. The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.
⇒ Because of OUR COLLECTIVE FREEDOM AND WELFARE – read the awesome news from LA above – some have decided I had to die in America. Fortunately, all the previous Kings of America have disagreed with the plan and, from their tombs, they protected me fiercely. G. Washington for sure, Martin Luther King of course, Abraham Lincoln, the father of slaves freedom, with certitude. Not to mention president Kennedy. At Atlanta, inside the Streetcar, I met an Irish man, one of the « Ambassador » of the Streetcar. As I told him that I was coming from France, he told me he is Irish from origin and American people have been to kind with him. He then advised me the beautiful places in America to visit. The must seen. At a certain point, he asked me « have you already been in NY » ? « I answered « Not yet ». « Oh », he said. « You have to : New York is unique ». This was my Irish Ambassador.
Since my mother died, I’ve been in contact and understanding the presence of the dead people. Before my mother crossed the other side of the mirror, I had the announciation of it through a vision inside the Church of the « Miraculous Medal » in Paris. There, I had the apparition of the Virgin wearing a pure bright white wedding dress and a crown of the same color. Golden rays were pouring out of her hands to the floor. I got afraid because of the tallness and the majesty and have kept silence since then. Today I’m telling it.
« L’Eglise de la Médaille miraculée » deserved its reputation. The Virgin Mary is there. My mother’s firstname was Marie.
I’m « wanted in America and persona non grata » – By the most corrupt figures of America. For them I worth all the migrants reaching the American soil, either through the International Green Card Lottery or in clandestinity.
I’m the Amtrak.
THIS TEXT IS WRITTEN FOR YOU AS A GIFT AND A CONFESSION FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO YOU.
I hate vulgarity was the starting point yesterday. Vulgarity reflects morbidity and mediocrity. In the end, you enter THE WORLD OF criminality. Lampedusa EU first call for a militarization solution was a kind of this. What a wonderful news to hear the following from CNN :
“Indonesia and Malaysia agree to take in migrants arriving by ships, as long as the international community helps to resettle them within one year, Malaysian state media says.
The offer was announced in a joint statement by the Malaysian and Indonesian Foreign Ministers in Malaysia, according to Malaysian state news agency, Bernama.
In recent weeks, hundreds of migrants crammed onto ships have been arriving in the waters of both countries. They’re believed to be economic migrants from Bangladesh and Rohingya fleeing persecution in Myanmar, which is also known as Burma”.
This is first class action and looks like the Earth is flat.
Sticking with the migration problematic, here is another important stand by the NYC.
THURSDAY IS A DAY OF ACTION AT THE NYC FOR AN EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVE
On migrants settlement and immigration, the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs is communicating this:
Fellow New Yorkers —
Last week, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive advocacy and educational initiative to immediately address labor and health issues faced by many low-wage immigrant workers at our city’s nail salons.
Our first step is to educate salon workers on their rights, so they know they can reach out for help if their labor rights are being violated or if their safety or health is being compromised. We also want to empower consumers to know what to look for and how to report violations. That’s why, this Thursday, we’re leading a Nail Salon Day of Action to distribute educational materials to salon workers, owners, and consumers all across the five boroughs.
The more volunteers we have, the more people we can reach, and the faster we can improve conditions for some of our City’s most vulnerable workers.
Thanks for protecting the health and worker rights of our fellow New Yorkers.
I hope to see you on Thursday.

When you think that France is joking with the issue, vowing to stay away from any policy of quotas in order to take its part of responsibility in sharing the collective burden of Schengen, it is absolutely frightening. Yes Schengen is a failure. Nevertheless, France can not get the nerve to quit its responsibility as the First Responsible for the Mess created in Lybia. We all know that France and the UK were the first to mobilize the international community to go after colonel Gaddafi with an ultimatum for the Lybian Leader to quit immediately.
The rest of the story is all about oil-race armament.
For those two nations to come out, now, arrogantly and contemptuously just as if they did nothing is unspeakable.
So is the maxima traitor, Italy. After eating into the palm of hands of the colonel, they joined the killing machine in the air to destroy Lybia. They will pay for it for a long long time and carry on the hardship. Deservely. Colonel Gaddafi has been helping Italian economy and how did they say thank you ? By a murder. Total folly. Italian people deserve better.
REMEMBER OUR KEY WORDS HERE – positive co-productivity – non-automatic rationale resting on aggravating factors of inculture such as false equivalences or Pavlov primary reflexes…
Police, justice and the medias paso-doble
In the face of institutional racism and the two-standard gambling deployed by the police and the media reporting and focus, depending on who they are dealing with, the Daily Kos has a first hand testimony that depicts more than racism. That thing going beyond racism is animality of some policemen like the one laughing at Baltimore (view the picture at the Daily Kos). This should not be tolerated. It’s a clear declaration of war. Unacceptable.
« Dozens of others stabbed, beaten, and seriously injured.
Over 100 guns recovered.
Sounds like one of the worst crimes in modern American history, right?
Then why do the men above look like they are tailgating? Smoking cigarettes, others using their cell phones, nobody in the world could guess that these men were even associated with such a horrible crime.
Instead, you’d think the man below was involved.
Nah. He refused to get on the sidewalk during a curfew in Baltimore. Sprayed in the face with pepper spray, the officers even seemed to enjoy brutalizing him. See the smile?
It’s not a harsh comparison at all.
In Ferguson, Baltimore, New York, and around the country, protestors were actually protesting against violence and were often treated as if they were murderers.
In Waco, Texas, when one of the deadliest, bloodiest, most violent rampages in modern America happened, the National Guard wasn’t called in, the perpetrators weren’t beaten or pepper-sprayed, nobody was hogtied or humiliated, the dogs weren’t brought out to intimidate anyone. Hell, they didn’t even handcuff them or take their phones away. Instead, they just sat them down on the sidewalk peacefully ».
Excerpt from the Daily Kos.
THE NET UNDER STATE SABOTAGE EXPERTS
Tomorrow is another day where I will be facing SFR company Internet rationing ticket. The moment I responded to a friend of mine texting him : I’m writing. Instantly, I was out of connection. This is what the criminal law authorizing snooping is about : legalizing criminality and datas thefts including sabotage. It is a damned law which is going to inspire the already big brainless thieves. They have all the keys to enter your houses, rooms, laptops to pick up datas and inspiration before sabotaging actions. Once they see something on you or in your place, the other day, you see it in the news. Shamelessly. Thefts seem to be a genetical affair. BORN TO BE A BIG THIEF.
SFR is unable to face its duty since one month of promise of connection. When, at last, this week, three weeks later, they can deliver a little something, it is limited in time and absolutely unstable. But, they are asking for paiement – which is the least nuisance – their consumer service is empty : nobody to take the calls for assistance ; the email box doesn’t accept mails through the account they settled themselves. No dialog possible. France is down and what the government is doing with this ? Nothing. The kingdom of King Petaud is back. Thieves are free to promise anything and do whatever they want or not.
Instead of assessing those dysfunctioning services, the gov will make you twice a victim by associating itself to the Big gangs of Internet rats.
One month and the society is unable to deliver Internet and TV services. In France ? Even in Africa, this doesn’t exist. Such lies and a mockery are just unbelievable. France doesn’t deserve a double A. Its economy and performance are beyond anything imaginable. Every powerful body has got a green light to steal on the consumers « à volonté ». Guess what, you have no alternative. The sector is supposed to be competitive. But it is not. What you see is a connivence. Just look at the prices and the services : more of the same. Welcome to the other African Jungle, named France.
In France, you will say “bordel de merde”. It translates « Shit ».
And they called me the dog ? Who are the dogs ? It is not about racism only here, but a conjonction of racism and sabotage. You know the chant of White Supremacy, the elected God people, the only intelligent people. This fabulous fairy tale must stand up, by all means, including laws fabrication to ensure the fake story remains true.
Monopolies are too big to exist. Mr Sanders is absolutely RIGHT.
IN THE FRONT OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE HERE IS A DOUBLE CALL BY CREDO AND SENATOR BARBARA BOXER
As we are moving forward together, it can be interesting to lay down my foundations. Call them my origins. Everything is inside this ebook (picture)« Ca faisait partie du programme » translates « It has to be ». It covers a period of time going from age 8, attending a military primary School to age 21, when I got my first job as Executive Secretary in Cameroon inside a multinational company, “Brasseries du Cameroun”. Among many drinks the company was bottling, Coca-Cola and Fanta in Cameroon under the Licence of Coca Cola Company.
From my desk, I could see the bottling plant, below.
I entered the company with the Highest diploma for Secretary assisting Directors. In French, we call it BTS Secretariat (Bilingue). It equates to two years after a Technician Bachelor. Brasseries du Cameroun was, – with Total/ELF – the biggest companies in Cameroon, at the time. Brasseries had the highest workers of the Nation : about 5,000 around the nation to run the regional entities and plants along with a wide network of drinks distribution. At the time I was in there, the company was in a quasi-monopolistic situation sharing this position with Guiness. After my departure, the company was bought by Castel Group.
I spent 4 years in Office before deciding to come in France to do what I wanted much. The Technician certificate was not my choice. It was a consequence of brutal an nonsense gov policies on Education… Since then, as far as I can recall, I have been fighting stupid gov policies and there are so many of them.
I’ve been living in France since 1985, when I entered Lyon 2 University named after the Brothers Lumières, the inventors of Modern Cinema. I left Lyon 2 University with a Doctorate, 10 years later, in Sciences of Information and Communication. The Word Sciences is the keyword. It relates to Civilisation, litterature and language Studies.
So, when I landed at Atlanta, I was sent back 33 years ago, in Cameroon when I was drinking 4 to 6 small size bottle of Coca Cola each day. I could have drunk as many as I wanted. I just had to send a note to the plant or the commercial department for the Direction Office supply.
This was the time I lacked nothing. As you could read in the ebook – if you manage to read French or get a translator, I wish you do so – my father was a politician. Before that, he was a teacher. As General De Gaulle was building the elites in France – read our previous post here -, so was he doing in Africa, following the same pattern and ambitions of professionalism and excellency. My father is from that generation of people taking the lead of the nation after White masters had “left” the stage to hide behind the curtail of « African Independence ».
Interesting to notice is the Book is about Education inside a Politician family in Africa, at the very beginning of the State-Building there. My father’s political career was ended by the actual president of Cameroon, who did the same to all those working for President Ahmadou Ahidjo, when Cameroon was in the starting blocks.
After Ahidjo, the momentum was lost and we failed back to those uncertain territories of anarchic development. Apparently, things are getting better. See below, a summary of the prospects for African Development.
As for my father, politically punished and unprepared to a prematured retirement, life has dramatically shifted, not only for him, but for us also. Us, the children. The time this happened, I was already officing at Brasseries du Cameroun. I can tell I’m the only survivor of my family of 13 children. Two sisters of mine are missing. Sickness bring them down. So was my mother, in 2010, gone the 13th July – not the 13th but the 28th. She was burried the 13th August. The mother day comes with dark souvenirs for me, each year. But this is life. I started curing only this year, precisely during Easter resurrection prayers. I followed a preach on the TV, « Day of the Lord » – « In France, le Jour du Seigneur » and it was the first time I found some answers to start curing my heavy heart.
The Bible says, I you have gotten ears, you could understand the voice of the Savior, when you are in pain. And if you have eyes, you can see. Right ? See Intuitively. Knowledge is guided by ratio, for sure, but there is also that other Intuitive part. You just feel it.
I came in Europe having everything I needed. In Africa I was superb, successful and triomphant. I encountered poverty in France. Isn’t it amazing ? The Western Eldorado ?
IT HAS TO BE
Some are asking why I’m not returning in Africa ?
This is an excellent question. First part of the answer.
The second part of the answer is, those who are asking that are the same who have organised the depossession of Africans in Africa. Put plain and clear : is Africa belonging to Africans or to the West ? Look at the money laundering, tax evasion, the organisation of the WTO, the ongoing underground colonisation of France in Central Africa trailing behind the others African regional territories, look at those untold savage commercial deals including soil exploitation. Mali and central African French presence is part of the deal.
Now, I also have a question to the people asking African diasporas people to go back to Africa (Home). Can we ask the same question to the Western foreigners living in Africa or -are they authorising us to advise them to come back in their western countries, or even worse, can we organized a systematic frame of funds-cuttings and opportunities-erasure to keep them out of the race?
Never mind. This time I would say the Earth is round.
I’ve served Africa from outside the way I couldn’t, had I been back inside Africa and the leaders over there know that.
Keep Positive and only Time will tell what Tomorrow will be. You know the chant : que sera sera. Link
I hate vulgarity. I’m extremely bored by the association of vulgarity and the claim of humility as a pretense for the first. I have pledged to run away from the racists and to stay far remote from the hypocrites. So don’t wait me on that hypocrisy field.
It is clear that we can and may disagree from time to time. But from there, if an « old friend » – something non existing today – starts to insult you and compares you to the dog of Johnny Depp Australia is authorizing or not to come back to America, it is kind of double-gaming of high hypocrisy. Key words here are : Australia with Arborigenes, and coming back in America. Had you been a reader of our previous posts, you would see the maximum dose of insanity and racism guiding those birds of pray western media are housing pretending not to be racists. They are now praying for me not to come back like the dog of Johnny Depp. Ha ha ha. So mean.
Another outlet had presented the Mayor of the landing place of boats coming from Lybia to Italy as the « little woman » expecting not to see any boat at the horizon, just as if those were cows. When those hypocrites and untruthful journalists are presenting migrants as parasites or “non wanted people in Europe”, they are probably ignorant of the fact that America has got an international lottery open worldwide to anybody. It is you and your chance : the lottery is kind of a “sorting hat” (H. Potter). The more I’m writing, the more I’m getting British and Scottish. It is just incredible.
Those people non-wanted inEurope are from nations savagely exploited for at least four centuries, and the exploitation continues. Diamond, Gold, cobalt, … the priceless raw material are coming from there and most of the times, they have been either paid under their value or stolen by strength or pressures of all sorts, including diplomatic.
It is deeply painful to see that, in America, racism is driven by the institutions and the “leadership”. More troublesome is the fact that, among this institutional spectrum, the media are the leading forces. Racism is everywhere in the western media and in Hollywood. Alternatively, some black may be authorized in the show, on condition of abiding to the playmate game and the baby doll style. Look at Cannes today, the Big rendez-vous of dolls who have took on to the red carpets. You can find more of them and less of the movie-makers. Cannes is just another podium for inflated dolls.
Hollywood has never been so low. Culturally, it is such a regression and a loss. Mixing musicians, models, anything popular elsewhere has introduced a lot of confusion into the box office. We are missing real cinema actress. Cannes used to be a religious ceremony like. Nowadays, it is only a depraved souless spectacle of zombies getting on and down the stairs.
Cannes and Lampedusa are the two extremes of our Times.The perfect barometer.
On one hand, abandoned people by their leaders and the World Traumatising Order. On the other, non-creative people paid to keep the status quo going on. I’m pleased a French Philosopher, Emmanuel Todd has published a book asking the question “Who is Charlie”? Meaning who were the people demonstrating during the International Charlie Monstruous propaganda campaign ? In France, where the world class manipulation was then orchestrated, with PM Netanyahu as a guest star, clearly, it was the Middle Class, engaged in a process of dechristianisation. To accept gay’s religion and tradition, you must first of all be dechristianised. This is a prerequisite. A precondition. Charlie Moment was that moment of hidden persuasion aiming at getting people out of the Churches and to federate them under the label of laicity. In practical, another unavowed Integrism. What is more is the middle class in France, contrary to elsewhere in the planet, has morphed into the class of inertia. They are the ones who are waving the red flag to impeach the access of either migrants, immigrants, undocumented or poor nationals to the mainstream.
In France, a policy known as “ascenseur social”, which means the ability to lift people up, in the middle –class precisely, was operative during the right-wing leadership. De Gaulle Fathered it. That policy has helped the majority of French politicians elites and teachers alike and so many many people to get out of poverty. In a sense, it was French “affirmative law” implementation. Since 1981, when a socialist president came into Power, things have been worsening progressively, racism came back fiercely and it became comfortable for the middle-class and the upper – those who benefitted from the State ascension project – to justify their crooked game by accusing injustly Islamism and Muslims immigrants leaving in France as disturbers and responsible for the degradation of the nation. After all, French is no longer a triple A nation, due to poor social conditions, non assumed and perversive social apartheid and nightmarished inequalities.
Naturally, the philosopher, the author is accusing the french socialists to have betrayed the Republic as an Ideal. I applaude here with all my energy. At last, somebody, not me, is telling the perfect truth and walking out of Extreme Vulgarity, the definitional feature of our Times. Worldwide.
I will tell more about this, anytime soon.
As for today, I would like to drive your focus on interesting progressive agendas in the making :
1 – The Progressive Agenda of New-York : inequality is the crisis of our time.
« Friend, We are about to announce something big: over the past several months, economists, labor leaders, activists and elected officials have come together to create an agenda to combat income inequality across the country.
We’re asking leaders and voters from all 50 states, at the Federal, State, and City-wide levels, to sign The Progressive Agenda so we can make sure that the voice of every American is heard—not just those at the top.
From universal pre-K to paid sick leave, we’ve made tremendous strides here in NYC. But there’s a real hunger across the country to tackle the inequality crisis we’re facing—and the fact is, our city does not exist in a vacuum.
The agenda outlines key ways we can lift the floor for working people, support working families, and make sure big corporations and the very wealthy pay their fair share in taxes.I’ve long said that income inequality is the crisis of our time.
Taking it on won’t be easy. But it starts by coming together and embracing a shared set of proven progressive policies.
Petition to Congress: « Commit to voting for the ‘Too Big to Fail, Too Big to Exist’ Act, introduced in the Senate by Bernie Sanders, and finally break up the too-big-to-fail banks. »
If Senator Bernie Sanders gets his way, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase are going to end up in pieces. Seven years after their criminal fraud nearly collapsed the global economy and they came crawling to the rest of us for a bailout, too-big-to-fail banks are actually 80 percent bigger than they once were.1 Today, they pose an even greater threat to our financial system. The risky gambling and deceptive speculation continues. Wall Street reform has imposed new rules, but it hasn’t changed the game.Last week, Senator Sanders introduced a bill to end “too big to fail” once and for all.2Now it is up to us to show the rest of Congress that it is time to break up the biggest banks.Stand with Bernie Sanders: Tell Congress to break up too-big-to-fail banks. Click here to sign the petition.The 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law added new oversight, new rules, and most importantly created new institutions like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but it didn’t go far enough. Today, the biggest banks are bigger than ever, they can borrow money at lower rates because the market assumes we will bail them out, and their reckless behavior continues.In just the past few years, large financial institutions have been caught rigging interest rates, manipulating foreign exchange rates, selling people misleading financial products, facilitating tax evasion and money laundering, and more.3 The expansion of high-frequency, algorithmic speculation and front-running has increased risks. In the “flash crash” of 2010, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped nearly 1,000 points in just minutes before rapidly recovering.4In 2008, we were told that the American people had no choice but to provide $700 billion in taxpayer bailouts – not to mention the Federal Reserve’s $16 trillion in near-zero interest loans – because if the largest financial institutions failed, they would drag the rest of the system down with them. But if the biggest banks have only gotten bigger, what will we do when the next crisis strikes? As Sanders said introducing his bill, “If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist.”5
Sanders’ “Too Big to Fail, Too Big to Exist Act,” and its companion bill in the House introduced by Rep. Brad Sherman, would direct the government to compile a list of systemically important financial institutions, just as Dodd-Frank did. But it would also direct the Secretary of the Treasury to break up those institutions within one year, and ban them all from receiving special help from the Federal Reserve or gambling with federally-insured deposits. Under this bill, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Morgan Stanley would all be broken up.6
It wasn’t long ago that trust-busting and breaking up monopolies was considered common sense. We broke up the telecom giants as recently as the 1980’s. And today, Sanders’ bill is supported by the Independent Community Bankers of America.7But too many members of Congress are still scared to confront Wall Street, so we need to show that countless Americans stand with Bernie Sanders and demand that too-big-to-fail banks be broken up. Click the link below to tell Congress to break up too-big-to-fail banks.
I told you, sometimes ago, in my previous post. On Friday 9, precisely. The Agony of A Death Train named Amtrak. Sometimes, Writers can be Oracles.
Here is the quote : « During this first transatlantic traveling in America, I was fascinated by two antiquities : the Amtrak and the School buses. Both are telling the story of the beginning of the Industrial era with rail transportation and auto-designing. Watching the fume of the Amtrak rolling forward, I was amazed by the cough of the train expectoring its agony (at) each sliding of the wheels. The Amtrak is kind of a poem of the agony. Agony is its engine and essence. This train is ageless. Even in that endless agonizing Amtrak, I’m sure to be more protected and secured than in a car insured by Progressive select company insurance. Talk to me again about Progress ».
Today, some are asking Why ? Come on. You just need eyes to see it (*). For experts, naked eyes are trained eyes. Simply put, naked exam is the upper level of expertise, when you need one glance to capture the scene. It requires 10 years minimum of high level expertise to be performant. The bottom line of this article provides another clear picture of that performance (1).
I also told you about a third moment, when the text is calling me back – like in « Baghdad Cafe » movie. This time, you are witnessing the call back process. First, there is this very bad news concerning the Amtrak derailment. My perception of the facts and the engine were absolutely right. Sorry for the injured and for those who lost their lifes. It reminds me about my own experience with the car crash in Washington, D.C. The moment when I got completely discouraged. But, you know what kept me confident ? The Voice of Martin Luther King.
The day-night I visited the Memorial at Atlanta, he was asking me this simple question : « Why it took you so long to come » ? And I had nothing to answer. I was totally disarmed by the anger I could extirpate from his voice.
Yes, I went in America totally disarmed and off-guard. I was simply too happy to be there. At last. My dream was coming true. A week after landing, the sound of the phone house at Mauldin rang as the horn of the Amtrak. Agonizing. At that very moment, my journey slept out of control. It was time to experience the Heat. And you go through it alone, unfortunately. This is the Law of Nature. I was turned upside down, nobody to rely on and nothing solid to stop my Slippery descent to Hell.
Thanks God, by His miracle, I kept on writing an shooting in the midst of that chaos and disarray.
The other unwritten law is, in politics, always count on YOURSELF. Apart from the wink of « Charlotte, Elisabeth, Diana », a noticeable exception from the UK – I had to go to Charlotte, so close to Mauldin, but, the project derailed, – [apart from that triple King size wink] in politics, friends are there to take, not to give. This very specific point turned blank in my brain. I was thrilled and euphoric. Totally unprepared to face the Worst. When time starts its brutal acceleration, it totally caught me by surprise.
I share the pain of the families. I know this road.
At least 6 people died and 200 people were treated at hospitals after the train went off the tracks, the mayor says.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators will look at a number of factors to try to determine what caused the derailment, including the track, the train signals, the operation of the train, the mechanical condition of the train, and human performance, NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt says.
« Traveling in excess ? » – High Speed ? Human Performance only ?
(*) – (CNN) « The Amtrak train that derailed Tuesday in Philadelphia is believed to have been traveling in excess of 100 mph as it approached a turn that is rated at 50 mph, according to a source briefed by investigators.
The death toll in the Tuesday night derailment of an Amtrak train has risen to seven, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said in a news conference ».
What about the state of the railways and the engine underperforming, because America has sacrified its train modernization, under the automakers lobbying ? And it shows.
Yesterday, the Trans-Pacific Partnership went under the Heat of Republicans. Interesting to notice the fear of Growth evaporation abroad behind the vote.
« Senate Democrats delivered a blow to President Barack Obama today when they blocked debate on a major trade bill that the White House has championed.
On a 52-45 vote, the measure fell short of the 60 votes needed.
The rare filibuster by members of the President’s own party speaks to the divisive nature of the bill.
Opposition to the measure, which would allow for quick approval of the 12-country, free-trade agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, has been building among progressive Democrats for some time.
Many Democrats and some Republicans believe past trade deals have hurt the U.S. economy and led to jobs moving overseas » (CNN).
Auto-lobbying, railways antiquity, Transpacific Partnership, Democracy and Growth. Add them up and you end up with a derailment.
This train of Hell still has a lot to tell us. It is only the beginning of the Hearing. Hold on with Germanwings and Lubitch, the co-pilot. (1)
Talking about growth, in France, a zero per cent plus something growth has been miraculously reached. Growth without jobs and a decrease of investments. Some economists are asking French people to wait for a miraculous adjustment within three months. Perhaps yes or no. Rendez-vous in September. Clap your hands.
In Germany, growth is lower than the French zero per cent plus something. Clap again.
You may ask where the French miracle comes from and you are right to. It comes from oil crubbling prices. According to some experts, the miracle is the outcome of rising gas consumption. Thanks to America blowing the wall of oil production. This is the miracle president Hollande has been waiting for, for so long. Equivalent to the Manna from the Heaven. God bless America !
“Credit” is what our entire system is based upon. It has become the basis for all paper wealth and the lubricant for all real economic activity. Should credit collapse (it will), everything we have come to believe in (been fooled by) will change. Credit has come to be viewed as “wealth”, it is considered an “asset”… with just one problem, it is neither! Credit is only an asset and can be considered wealth as long as the borrower “can pay”.
And herein lies the rub, Greece cannot pay which means the holders of Greek debt (along with issuers of CDS) cannot pay and so on. It is not just Greece of course, it is the entire Western world, it just happens that Greece is first because they lied the most with the help of Goldman Sachs and other “benefactors”.
Read the IMF press briefing below assessing the Greece question (2).
Moving ahead, after the drama with our condolences to the families who lost their loves ones and compassion for those injured. So far « The death toll in Tuesday night’s Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia has risen to eight, and all 243 people that investigators believe were on the train have now been accounted for, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter told reporters Thursday afternoon » (CNN).
« Former Gov. Jeb Bush on Thursday clarified — again — his position on the Iraq War, saying, « Knowing what we know now … I would not have gone into Iraq. »
The comments marked the fifth time this week that the prospective 2016 presidential candidate sought to explain his position on the war, which was launched during the presidency of his brother, George W. Bush » (CNN).
(2) In its traditional IMF Press Briefing, Greece has dominated the discussion. Burundi, Ukraine and the BRICS Bank were also at issue.
MR. RICE: Good morning, everyone, and welcome to this Regular Press Briefing on behalf of the International Monetary Fund. I am Gerry Rice of the Communication Department.
QUESTIONER: Good morning. Just first on the Greek program credibility, that includes the debt, correct, the debt burden has to be sustainable and also credible by the IMF, does it not?
And secondly, since the IMF has outlined the preparations that the Fund is helping some countries take in the event of a Greek default, can you outline what the contingency planning that the IMF is making for Greece for default?
MR. RICE: As I said before, we do various scenarios for various countries. We don’t disclose the details of that information for obvious reasons. On your question about the debt, well, you’re right. Of course, it’s a big part of the credibility and that’s why we have the Debt Sustainability Analysis (DSA) updated on a regular basis, and we will be doing so in the course of this review as it continues.
QUESTIONER: Gerry, can you just take one more on Greece?
MR. RICE: Okay. QUESTIONER: Thank you. I have two questions. First of all, will Madam Lagarde be meeting with Mr. Draghi today and can you give us a sense of what they’ll be discussing?
Secondly, do you have any update on Greece’s liquidity situation? Obviously, they did some interesting maneuvering to make the last IMF payment. What is your sense of their liquidity situation and their ability to make the next payment?
MR. RICE: We still don’t have like the last time, the granularity on the liquidity situation in Greece. On the Managing Director meeting with Mario Draghi today, she certainly will because he’s coming to, as I mentioned, give this lecture. And, of course, they’ll have many interactions in the course of the day. And I don’t know what they will talk about. I would imagine that they will discuss developments in Europe, including Greece. But you’ll see him here for yourselves very shortly.
QUESTIONER: Thank you, Gerry. I actually have a follow-up on Greece also. QUESTIONER: No, no, it’s not a first. I sometimes veer off my usual path. We were discussing with my colleagues here before the briefing that Greece has been offered a membership in this BRICs Bank and I wanted to ask you whether it sounds to you as a good idea for them to sort of — it looks like they’re looking for additional arrangements that maybe used in the current situation and, again, diluting. Does that look like that to you? What would you like to say about this.
DEFINITELY WORLD CLASS CITIZENRY LABEL BELONGS TO YOU.
Here are the latest reverberations.
A King is dead.
« Riley B. King, the legendary guitarist known as B.B. King, whose velvety voice and staccato picking style brought blues from the margins to the mainstream, died Thursday night, his daughter said.
He was 89.
King was admitted to a Las Vegas hospital this month after suffering from dehydration, his daughter, Patty King said » (CNN).
From one slope to another
« A U.S. military helicopter missing in Nepal since Tuesday has been found on the steep slopes of a mountain east of Kathmandu, a top Nepali army officer said. A Nepali army helicopter spotted it at an altitude of 11,200 feet » .
« Burundian authorities arrested the military generals behind an attempted coup, including its leader, a government spokesman said » (CNN).
This coup was stupid. Coups are behind us and on the right side of History.
Adventurism in Politics, an african speciality, illness and particularity. And some civilian activists are asking more of that. Crazy Burundese civil society. What are they going to do with the Humanitarian crisis and more poverty and instability not only in Burundi but in the neighboring countries impacted by those irresponsible « leaders » looking at their own interests : the Benghazi rebels foolish model.
In respect to Democracy, here is a warning by Monique Teal of the Daily Kos. I will let you decide what to do.
« Elise, the Senate just voted 65-33 to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). This is incredibly disappointing, but the fight against TPP is still on in the House of Representatives.
Currently, there are not enough Republican votes to pass fast track, but House Democrats are feeling the pressure from the White House to make up the difference.
Whether we win or lose on fast track now hinges on how many members of the House stand up for working people and say “no” to a secret corporate trade deal that you and I are not allowed to read.
Please take a few minutes to call your member of the House of Representatives today at the number below, and leave the following message:
Unfortunately we could not identify your legislators.
“I am one of your constituents. I am urging you to stand up for working people and say NO to a secret corporate trade deal that will ship jobs overseas and endanger our environment. Please vote NO on fast-track approval for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.”
This vote will come down to the wire. Members of the House are under a lot of pressure from the White House to support this secret trade deal. We must remind them that they work for us, and must reject fast track ».
I respect Monique’s statement and I understand the challenge. Not to mention that I’m cheering her calling back.
FAST-TRACKING THE TPP – I would rather agree with the Senate vote, regarding the latest Amtrak breakdown, probably due to delays and backwardness. Hopeffuly, there will be no derailment with the acceleration of the TPP speed. Let’s go for a try, if the House is OK. If we don’t try, how do we know, it works ?
Here is where we are going to park the Amtrak.
Untill Monday. Happy Mother’s Day for mums of the World and time for prayers for the Amtrak victims.
« WE ARE ON THE BRINK OF SOMETHING SPECIAL »: DAVID CAMERON
Without surprise, Cameron has eaten up his opponents.
Yes, it was clear that Cameron will come up in first position. Whether this stems from his record or for the lack of alternative, the result is HE IS THE BOSS.
Lib dems positioning was blocked by the tiny shooting angle left between the Tories and the Labour. The only strategy for them would have been to assume their entire responsibility in backing and operating inside the coalition, for the best and for the worst.
Ed Miliband, going frenchy and a Hollandist’s groupie – read the French presidential rafale here – was doomed to fail. Actually, France is not an example to follow or to praise and support. It may even be the exact opposite : stay far away from France and you’ll survive. Should I add stay far away from the European Union facing waves of migrants boats due to Schengen totally blind unconsciousness, « Hiding heads in the sand » ?
Schengen is a Big Failure Design. A Broken Veil. It has open a pandora box (3).
Cameron is going to ask this to the British people in two years time. Book the date on your agenda : 2017. It will be a great moment of truly democracy again.
Talking about a vibrant democracy, Scottish National Party has got its revenge on the referendum and Alex Salmon is certainly a very happy man today. He finally got the success he was looking for… after a resignation. In French, there is a saying: when you think you have lost it all, this is where you finally win.
Because of our implication in Scottish matters during the Scottish referendum debate seeking independance from Westminster, we share the huge success of the SNP and praise the excellent candidate. A woman. Nice.
As for Nigel Farage, the miraculous european election outcome simply vanished into the sand. But the man is sympathetic : during the first debate, I really enjoyed the moment he said « politicians never had a real job ».
Everything is ending well in Great Britain and the Union Jack is saved. So is the Queen.
With zero unemployment rate and lower business charges, UK has seemingly found the road to growth. In the meantime, in France, unemployment is skyrocketing, no jobs creation in the horizon because of zero economic policy, business creation is down and many of those existing are closing doors, companies are suffering a need of cash, the way for a loan or a credit for entrepreneurs remains cloudy… Charges are the highest in the world… Selling Rafales to Qatar is the essential line of the foreign trade ; the trade balance is deficitary. How could Ed Miliband won anything, taking this France as a model ? Did Ed Miliband hear about French soldiers sexually molesting young children in Central Africa, in exchange for food and water? Poor and black people ass are good and juicy for white fuckers who are crazy of them.
Bemol, the idea consisting in blocking rent increases is not that bad for a city – London – known as being one of the costly in the World, along with New York – even New Jersey, I was told recently – to reside. There is an important question to tackle here : by how far should we let rents increase go ? Housing matters a lot, for it can be caused for more wild repartition of the people between the haves and the haves-less – possibly leading to an apartheid policy style.
Housing and the cost of living are the next steps to tackle. Singled out, I wonder why NJ Gov. Chris Christie, a potential presidential GOP primary contender, is going to bring on the table on the issue.
Now, Burundi is opposing a third term for the sitting president. Africans are porous to automatic ideas. The problem with presidents – either in Africa or elsewhere – is not two mandates. This is not that much important. The issue is the regularity of the electoral process. Museveni, the Ugandese leader is a good president. He can stay there as long as the people are voting for him and as long as the election is not rigged. Kagame also and even Kenyatta. Those presidents are posing no threat for development and democracy in their country.
It is important for Africa to learn how the West and the East (Russia, China, Japan, India…) and even Arabic nations such as Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, have built up their nations. At the very beginning, there were Kings, Emperors, Tzars, Supreme Guides . Their longevity was key for the stability and for long-term projects.
African people should focus on transparent and clear elections not on the number of mandates which, in the case of an emerging Africa could strip great men – a rare species in Africa – for adventurers in politics. Earlier stages of the creation of nations requires visionaries and long-sitting leadership.
A third mandate, four or five, why not ? The election is there to select rightly and to eliminate, in case of fatigue or rejection of the People.
Back to France to conclude this : four days ago, on Tuesday, I announced my desire to follow the Washington On line on Twitter. Coincidentally, from that day now, my TV has turned blind. « No input » is the permanent message. This is the latest news on the oppressive invisible activities in France, when you disagree with the leadership. Gangsterism conducts are displayed at each level, localy and nationally. After all, a new law is legalising all forms of public services cutting and rationing on your communications, editing and telecommunications. Snooping is official and legalize just like sniffing.
The Mayor of the country side I’m still living it – I hope this to come to an end soon – was chosen – on my back – by Nicolas Sarkozy to represent his party in the county level. And guess who is in charge of the problem of TV turning blind for instance ? Nobody precisely. It starts with this and too many disturbances on a daily basis, and, in the end, they make life impossible for you to breathe. Sophisticated oppression poses maximum pressure on the people.Fear and stress have never given birth to freedom necessary to innovate and create. And those are people lecturing Democracy to African people and dreaming for Growth.
There is a cost to harming people, harassing them using oppressive policies. THIS COST IS ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL IMPASSE. Everybody loses.
BUT TODAY IS A GOOD DAY. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LION OF UK, PM DAVID CAMERON. YOU MAKE US BELIEVE A BETTER FUTURE IS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VICTORY. IT IS SO COOL AND REFRESHING. I REALLY LOVE THAT.
« Now is the time to come together and ensure that an economic recovery reaches all parts of the country »: David Cameron.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Wednesday asked the department « to investigate if our police department has engaged in a pattern or practice of stops, searches or arrests that violate the Fourth Amendment. »
Her request came almost a week after six Baltimore police officers were charged after Freddie Gray died in police custody ».
— CNN. Attorneys for the Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray have filed a motion for the recusal or dismissal of State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s office from prosecuting the case. Six officers have been charged.
The lengthy motion cites a variety of concerns, including conflicts of interest and questions about the office’s independent investigation.
—CNN. « On May the 7th, The Senate has passed a bill to give Congress the authority to review an emerging nuclear agreement with Iran, despite vocal opposition from some conservative Republicans that the bill is not strong enough. The vote was 98 to 1.
The measure will now go to the House, which is expected to take it up next week. President Barack Obama has said he would sign the bill as long as it didn’t change dramatically from when it was approved a few weeks ago by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on a rare unanimous vote ».
PLUS AMERICAN INSURANCE COMPANY AND THE FRAUD OF THE RULE OF COMPENSATION.
While in Washington, I was involved in a car crash as a passenger. We were taken to the Washington Hospital. I was suffering from a contusion on the neck, as the crash was violent. Three months later, Progressive insurance which I gave the authorisation to consult my file in the WH, after sending them a copy of the consultation, three months later, the company is still asking for ground to sustain a compensation claim.
In France or elsewhere, any injury or prescription of rest due to a car crash is case for compensation. You don’t even beg or argue indefinitly for that. Apparently, in America, you need to be disabled to be eligible for a compensation.
Interesting to notice that WH didn’t charge the care he provided me. He offered me the consultation for free. Many thanks. So far, Progressive Select Company Insurance have not been able to reimbursed even the small amount of medicines prescribed by the WH’s doctor.
There is a gap between Noble Institutions such as the Washington Hospital and the private scammers putting the lifes of people in danger. Next time, before entering in a car in America, I will ask the name of the insurance. At the end of the day, you don’t know whether the Company is doing politics, trying to control my project or doing their job. I came in America without even knowing their existence. Why are they so confident I need them to come back ?
During this first transatlantic traveling in America, I was fascinated by two antiquities : the Amtrak and the School buses. Both are telling the story of the beginning of the Industrial era with rail transportation and auto-designing. Watching the fume of the Amtrak rolling forward, I was amazed by the cough of the train expectoring its agony (at) each sliding of the wheels. The Amtrak is kind of a poem of the agony. Agony is its engine and essence. This train is ageless. Even in that endless agonising Armtrak, I’m sure to be more protected and secured than in a car insured by Progressive select company insurance. Talk to me again about Progress. They are asking questions already answered previously in a detailed letter sent to them. And this is not the first time they are doing so to buy time.
Time is money.
At the WH, we spent 8 hours in observation. After that, the pain continues for days. The doctor told me I need a 10 days rest to go along with the pain. And the insurance is asking me questions just as if I was in a Court confronting a Judge. Should I swear on the Bible ?
During this travel, nothing was spared to me. From treasons to deceptions, I experienced all kinds of wickedness, but I survived them. At a certain point, I felt like being discouraged. Now, I know, it was just the acceleration of time. A blessing. Indeed.
Here is the latest gag of the Progressive Select Company insurance. Mr, Deutcho is my « attorney » in Washington. A case of study for Law students and departments. Apparently, this is how they play the game in America.
Thank you for getting back to me regarding Miss Mbock’s bodily injury claim.
In order to properly evaluate this claim, I need some additional documentation/clarification on a few things.
I have reviewed Miss Mbock’s letter documenting her professional situation, and I understand that it is a very unique situation. If you could please clarify the following questions with her that will help us in moving forward.
·Does Miss Mbock have documentation indicating the loss of income/revenue she experienced as a result of this incident? Is there a dollar amount that she would like us to consider for this claim?
· Did the doctor/medical provider at George Washington Medical Center provide any note/instruction/disability slip about missing work? I understand that Miss Mbock previously stated that they did not as it was not necessary, but with 10 missed days of work noted in the letter we would just like to confirm the type of instruction that was suggested by the physician during her visit.
· What type of physical activities does Miss Mbock’s research entail? What is the reason behind the research having to start anew?
I have kept the best for the end. Here it is. What is the real cost of British recovery ? Austerity ?
« There is a legend that says the land is a sleeping giant waiting to wake up. There is a legend that says King Arthur lies sleeping under a hill not many miles from my home and that, when the country has need of him, he will rise again to defend it ».
I particularly appreciate this strong sentence : « Peace is more than the absence of war ».
Said differently : Insecurity is War. What is war ? War is a state of permanent insecurity.
— Racism is War.
— Discriminations are War.
– — Organised groups to terrorize the population or to monopolize either the economy, politics or anything else is War.
— Illegal snooping and aggressive State violations of civil rights and laws such as the one France has just opt for to steal on the innovators is War. Are we back to Inquisition ?
According to Global Research, Britain is running a similar program, the « snooper’s charter », otherwise known as the Draft Communications Data Bill, which Binoy Kampmark describes as « the usual spawn of a misguided security establishment. »
– … Predatory conducts such as sexual slavery or human trafficking are Wars.
Those are Wars of Civilisation.
Frankly, Prince has superbly unfolded my thinking. First, concerning « co-productivity » – see the previous post – and second about « non-automaticity » and false equivalences. I’m delighted. Call it the Promethee effect.
Inculture and wickedness are the illnesses of the century.
By contrast, today, I read in « Yahoo » that « plastic surgery is vandalism » (a quote from an actress). Vandalism defines public properties destructions or damages. It does not concern privacy or personal belongings. If you want to criticize plastic surgery – I don’t even understand why – you’re going to interfere into private property businesses : the domain of freedom.
Education, Education. I like those yellow /orange Cuban-style school buses. Those are colors of the Sunshine till the sunset. Timeless.
Now is the time for me to tell a word on my writing. First of all, I’ve to be moved by something. In a sense, the subject speaks to me first. This is the starting point. What is unknown to me, at the moment I start writing, is where I’m going to end it. Take this text you have just finishing reading, for instance: it started with PM David Cameron bold victory and is ending with Prince and Education in America.
The first moment, I’m focused on the dynamic of the ideas. Ideas are like waves. As you catch them, so you build the story.
The second moment, I look at the right spelling.
And there is a third moment when I’m no longer in command. The text starts existing by itself and obliges me to come back again and again to add more precision or ideas. Some texts can be really exhausting, calling you back a lot of times to please them.
Naturally, every step of the way, your voices are at the background of the stage.
By distancing himself with big billionaires money pouring in the presidential race, Bernie Sanders is overturning the political table and changing the hardcore in politics. It is never too late, isn’t it? Let me be clear here, for it is important to underline that :
I’m not against billionaires. I have no hate or contempt for money, gold or diamonds. I love rich men and respect them. The problem is not money itself, but the uses of it. The problem is not big money as such, but the nocivity and intoxication of the society stemming from the misuses of it. As long as money in politics will be invested on candidates as a capital or horses, a return on investment will be awaited by the investors running a global sytem of preemptive corruption in politics.
The desastrous consequences are there for everybody to see in full.
Washington (CNN). Bernie Sanders says he won’t launch a Super PAC and doesn’t want billionaires to bankroll his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The Vermont senator who entered the 2016 race for the White House on Thursday told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in his first interview as a candidate that he’ll instead look to small-dollar individual donors.
And he lambasted the growing influence that major donors like Charles and David Koch on the right and Tom Steyer on the left now have on the political process.
« Frankly, it is vulgar to me that we’re having a war of billionaires, » Sanders said.
Asked whether he would bless a wealthy donor’s support for a pro-Sanders Super PAC, he said: « No. »
« The real question is, can any candidate in this country who represents working families, who is not a billionaire, who is not beholden to big corporations — in this day and age, can that candidate win an election? » Sanders said.
Sanders also called for « community policing, where police are perceived as part of the community, the good guys, rather than as interlopers. »
Community policing is key for social peace.
Security comes with Justice and not otherwise. During Gray’s turmoil, we witnessed something essential : a generational gap in approaching racism in America. Black men stood between young people and the police, as a peacekeeping force. Some of them blaming the burning down of the neighborhood crying out their anger and desperation to see those young men burning their own city.
If only things were that simple ! Jesse Jackson’s generation knows it is not black or white, neither black or black, but black and white. Yin and Yang, the two of them are inseparable. When you lack one, you miss the other.
Politically, putting fire is an act of resistance and discontent, because you don’t burn infrastructures, but the spirit lying in them. In fact, you burn down the system. Usually this occured when other ways have been explored in vain.
From Rev. Jesse Jackson’s generation to the 14-15-16 young men protesting in Baltimore, a generation or may be two have somehow been trailing back the events. Some because of too much « needful selfish interest » ; other enrolled in the « white fly » instead of leading their community and territory into the path of excellency. Sure, some are generous enough to handle scholarships like they poured « peanuts » to the poor people. Saying this is not diminishing the labor of some communities servants or demonising philanthropists.
In fact, a lot can be said about black men adults irresponsibility and retreat. This is not the time for that.
It is time to praise the women in charge of that dossier: Baltimore Mayor and the Prosecutor alike. They acted promptly and with the right proportion of authority. It is marvelous. Calm is restored.
As for the police, apparently, they did a good job showing restraint in front of the youth. But their reputation of brutality had undermined their authority feeding community mistrust. How to rebuild this trust ?
Multiple positive signs, out of this fire, are indicating there will be a before Freddie Gray and an after. For the better.
The first sign is the acceleration of time impacting the presidential race.
1. (CNN) « Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina announced her candidacy for president today, becoming the first declared female candidate to seek the Republican Party’s nomination for 2016.
« Yes, I am running, » Fiorina told ABC’s « Good Morning America, » and followed quickly with posts to her social media accounts ».
The former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official, David Wildstein, admitted that he conspired to close lanes of the George Washington Bridge as political retribution against the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing the governor’s re-election » (CNN).
Yet, the road for a better security remains tricky.
« Two people were shot by police outside of an event billed as the « Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest » in Garland, Texas, on Sunday evening, according to Garland Mayor Douglas Athas, who added, « I believe they are dead. » A security guard was also wounded, according to Athas.
CNN producer Chris Lett, who was covering the event, said there were about 40 people gathered when police announced there had been a shooting. The event, sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, claimed to have received « over 350 submissions of Mohammed cartoons from all over the world. » (CNN)
In my storytelling in Mauldin, where I embrassed Paul Johnson, through his outstanding « A History of the American people », cited in our previous post, I kept silence over the other part of the story. Effectively, I went to the bookshop to buy a book. But it wasn’t the Johnson I fall in love with, but the « New Jim Crow ». Had I found it on the shelves, may be I would’nt have spent that much time looking at the other books.
Why the New Jim Crow ? When I came in America, I had to inform three senators at least of my presence. The two senators of NJ, Cory Booker and Bob Menendez and the Senator of Minnesota, senator Al. I’ve been communicating with their teams for a while. Senator Cory Booker’s team sent me an email telling me « the senator is pleased to invite you at his book club where we will be speaking of the « New Jim Crow » in January ». This was after the Christmas vacancy. So, as all of you know, before you attend a book club, you’ve got to read the book, at least. That is how I went to the bookshop.
What is sure is, even without that invitation to join the book club, I had to go to a bookshop and into librairies, for this is my life. I need both of them to breathe and feel alive.
I’m grateful to the senator’s team for that excellent advise and acceleration of knowledge and time for me on the American society. Thank you so much.
From Atlanta to Washington, I embrassed Dr. King and President Kennedys memorials. Inside the Arlington cemetery, after visiting the presidential memorial, I went straight to the tomb of the unknown soldier. Lucky me, the ceremony of the changing of guards began under my watch. As I was looking the soldiers walking like ghosts just as if they were having no contact with the ground – all this taking place inside a complete silence – something hurt my feelings and my thoughts : this tomb of the unknow soldier is kind of a frontier between life and death…
One of two gunmen in a Garland, Texas, attack on a cartoon contest featuring images of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed has been identified as Elton Simpson, a federal law enforcement source told CNN’s Susan Candiotti.
The source said Simpson, who along with another gunman was shot dead by police, is thought to have sent a tweet before the attack with the hashtag #texasattack. « May Allah accept us as mujahideen, » the tweet read in part.
Simpson was well known to the FBI, the source said. He was convicted in 2011 of making a false statement involving international and domestic terrorism and sentenced to three years of probation, court records show.
Simpson told FBI agents he had not discussed traveling to Somalia to engage in « violent jihad » when he had, according to an indictment reviewed by CNN.
The FBI says that its agents are at an apartment complex in Phoenix where the two gunmen lived.
— The second gunman in the Garland, Texas, attack has been identified as Nadir Soofi, two law enforcement officials told CNN’s Pamela Brown.
Soofi was the roommate of Elton Simpson, the other gunman.
Soofi is not well known to federal law enforcement and was not on the FBI radar like Simpson was, one of the officials said.
— CNN. « ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, the official ISIS radio channel announced today.
The two gunmen, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, wounded a security guard before police shot and killed them ».
For a complete and honest reporting of the facts concerning « political revolution », exactitude recommends to give back to Ceasar what belongs to Him. The Revolution began in 2008 with president Obama, at a time when the 30-40 years in politics discovering the necessity of it today were doing business in politics as usual. We all deserve a second chance and any change should be welcome. Changing to the best is what makes us better and good.
This label of citizenship you are reading right now was launched in the wake of president Obama’s victory as President of the US. The label has been at the forefront of the political revolution worldwide. It was not a candidacy vehicle ; nor is it an hindrance for it. Chosing to bring some insight to president Obama worldwide leadership, from outside, has earned me all names. One of it is « Obama’s bootleakers » by an ex community servant lecturing at Princeton (NJ). Understandably. The generation of those communities servants are historically empty and desauthentified. They are uprooted people.
« Bootleakers »? Black stupidity and void arrogance at its best. Thanks God, America had implemented « the affirmative action ». Thanks to Martin Luther King fight for civil rights leading to that unmatchable decision who really changed the face of America and the faith and fate of black people, women and other minorities alike. We owe those civil rights fighters a big deal. Always remember that. Again and again.
Here in France, the affirmative action has taken a strange shape: some nominations in the governement are motivated by the affirmative action. But, don’t tell, don’t ask, France is in total denial. The nation is also denying its control on freedoms. Late in the row, now, education has entered the control of the lenght of the skirts. The long are criticized as extra-long.
The top untold and non-assumed affirmative-action model, wearing a mini-jupe, walking on the stairs of the Elysee Palace, is the model selected by the media to teach french women how to dress like a prostitute (*). In between, they are exercing minds and spirits control and preempting french female citizens’ future.
Whereas, covered affirmative action goes with more hidden coercition on freedoms, in France ; in America the affirmative action has multiplied ways for freedoms and fulfillments. France’s affirmative action is based on favoritism, arbitrary and cronyism. Nevertheless, in America, the affirmative action can not be eternal. With a strong middle class and a considerable class of upper rich among them, black people may not be suffering misery, racism and all sort of woes the way they are burdened. Undeniably, there is much more in their sufferance that need to be identified. We ought to reflect on it. Seriously.
NEW YORK… NEW YORK.
(*) Guess what, the next day I wrote this, some « famous models » – according to the box office – said to be influential of I’m searching what, were inspired with my pick and performed a walk on the stairs somewhere, to show up, and to say what ? I forgot. So, tell me my friends, who is the most influential if not the followers trailing behind and trying to catch up with the real society on the move ? Who is the most influential, the genuine or the Pavlov parodiers who could have only be black and black ? Some micmics are burlesque and so laughable. After nakedness, what else ? Vacuum and vacuity. How do you influence people with superficiality ? It is important to mention that the word « followers » does not make reference to Twitter’s users who are engaged into a friendly and co-productive relationship. For instance, I’m intending to be a Washington Online follower and I’m at ease and please to do so.
I told you, some black people are despicable. It is not always the White man fault. Sometimes, they deserve it. Unfortunately, the whole community is paying the cost of that burden. White men know perfectly how to turn some black people monkeys and larbins and even how to oppose them. It is not difficult. Just look around and pick a stooge to perform in joy. The Puppet industry can envision a bright future with those soulless people ready to do anything possible to protect their beefteack.
How is it black people are still so contemptible ? Not only by white people but also by black people ? This is the untold story, the forbidden question. Let it be, as for now.
Have you seen how the Femen have turned the far-right 1st May gathering ridiculous ? If you haven’t seen this, you ought to. Those young women were genuine enough to rent a room in a hotel, just in front of the place of the rally. Marine le Pen was the speakerine. The Femen just kicked their butts, using two weapons : nake breasts and blonde wigs coupled with Hitlerian red flags and a terrific well-inspired Heil Marine salute! Marvelous.
Later on, they were invited on TV studios to explain their gesture. The first reason was the neo-nazi hidden profile and ideology of that political party. Along with this, the rage to see that the representant of such a right-winger extreme party can be invited or ranked by the Times as one of the hundred most influential persons in the planet at… a NEW YORK grandiose ceremony. Shamelessly. NEW YORK… NEW YORK.
Shame on those retrograds and fake so-called rankings. Obsolete and good for the dustbin of the 20th century, due to their fucking lies and imposture. Void and nullissime.
Femen, I love You.
Earlier, I wrote « No passaran » and those young girls got exactly the message. The so-called prestigious press of world combinaciones got zero. Business as usual was ongoing with strange and fairy guests. In French there is a saying : ridicule does not kill a man.
We are living wonderful changing moments. Old icons are dying by themselves. The hardcore is rotten.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, according to a statement from Kensington Palace.
Welcome to Elizabeth. « Charlotte, Elisabeth, Diana ». It sounds so juicy. It’s a girl.
