Another final solution is looming, bis repetitas. Washington in chaos.

BREXIT HAS BEEN OKEY BY THE UK GOV. AND NOTICED TO THE LONDONIANS WALKERS ASKING FOR A REPLAY. IT WAS SAID FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THAT THIS REFERENDUM WAS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR A GENERATION. SO THE GOV IS KEEPING ITS WORDS AND COMMITMENT. THE ATTEMPT TO CHEAT ON THE PEOPLE DIDN’T WALK, IN THE FACE OF A RESPONSIBLE AND TRUTHWORTHY GOV.

THIS SIGNALS THE NEXT ORIENTATIONS.  BREXIT IS DEFINITIVE.

Meanwhile, Black Men are killed to cover the State Dept email resurgence connection, as it has been the case during this primary session. Minnesota is the place where a dentist became fame killing Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe. Just to quench his hate towards black people.

Washington in chaos ? Blackmail, corruption, sex, crimes and politics… shake all this, then you have Orlando historical bloodbath, cynically targetting gay people to blur tracks.

They Are Going To Come For You…Why Are You Helping Them?

READ Washington in chaos.

So far, those are suspicions, but there is no smoke without fire. To which extent the FBI’s investigators were under threats of blackmail ? Was their judgement clean and honest, knowing what President Poutine knows – should he be in possession of the black boxes…

PHILADELPHIA WATCH OUT – AN IMPEACHMENT IS LOOMING SOONER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK.

SVR intelligence analysts contributing to this report note that by the Obama regime’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton they not only nullified 6 US Federal criminal laws, but, also, disgraced the FBI and its once stellar reputation.

Also to be destroyed by Hillary Clinton’s exoneration, this report continues, is the United States reputation as being a nation of laws that apply to everyone equally—made especially damning in the light of China sending one its top politicians to jail for life for excepting bribes this past week, and Russia itself, also this past week, firing two of its top military commanders for the mere suspicion that they were negligent in their duties.

To why the Clintons have been allowed to continue their 25-year-saga of existing outside of the laws every other American has to live by, this report concludes, is solely due to the massive blackmail files former President Bill Clinton has compiled on numerous top politicians, bankers and elites (and has threatened to release if Hillary Clinton is ever charged) containing videos and photos of them having sex with child sex slaves kept by Jeffery Epstein—and that EVERY SINGLE American news media outlet knows about, but are too terrified to report on ».

***

This resonates with our Flash over the World about the relationship between Occupation and recolonisation. Occupation and enslavement. Enslavment and sex abuses… Listen.

Each time, Hillary’s campaign was on the brink to loose a primary, they resorted to either a shooting or gay propaganda. The relationship between child sex slaves and gay promoters is not fortuitous, it is in the nature of the same process to abuse straight, gays and children alike. Prostitution, drugs, human trafficking, wars and corruption are the ingredients of the new progressive pack designed for and to YOU, sheeps.

Look, how football has been contaminated. We hope that Ronaldo or another Portuguese star was not approached for bribes, as the Germany Captain was paid for to cause this incomprehensible and totally useless penalty.

Either Ronaldo can be approached or blackmailed, if he is a tax evader, hiding something offshore or something worse : SEX ABUSES UNDER DRUGS.

Messi has been betrayed offshore.

BLACK ETERNAL SERVILITY IS THEIR ACHILLE’S HEEL

Django and Malcom X have depicted the Saloon Neger, a bastard one as the worst slave ever. Seven (Django) represents the prototype of the endless submission of black slaves, who have sacrified their own lives to follow their white masters, like dogs.

A big shame. That is why ‘Black Lives Matter’ are no longer speaking. Briberies and corruption have flattened them…

Not at all, they say, but, they  have changed their strategy and opted for a Martin Luther King style. The convenient excuse of their elders in politics along with their President and lawmakers. Let’s keep it this way, as it is culturally American. But I’m afraid the strategy doesn’t fit the duty. Never mind.

They are asking Justice for Philando and Alton.

Sign the petition demanding accountability for Philando Castile and Alton Sterling’s murders.

Here is the bottom line : Martin Luther King’s successors have sold themselves out to the establishment. In doing so, they have left the field of fight void. The vaccuum didn’t bring significant change. Instead, it had sent a go-free message to the business or murdering black people at guise, without facing deterrent Justice. And sometimes, nothing at all.

That is why the Neger of Saloon is the worst thing ever. The fight is now for the younger generations to carry up ; black and whites alike.

Demand accountability for Philando Castile and Alton Sterling’s murders.


Justice for Alton and Philando

Elise,

The pain is unbearable. Like so many of you, I woke up to yet another video of a Black man’s death autoplaying in my social media feed–and it feels like we’re in a never-ending nightmare.

Philando Castile’s murder comes less than 24 hours after the cops executed Alton Sterling.1 And it’s just as devastating, just as infuriating to wake up to this for the second day in a row. The officer shot him four times after pulling him, his girlfriend, and his daughter over for a broken taillight. Philando’s girlfriend, Diamond « Lavish » Reynolds, livestreamed the entire incident on Facebook–you can hear the officer screaming at her while she tries to hold it together and her four-year-old daughter says “It’s ok, Mommy. I’m right here with you.”2 Then Diamond was arrested while the police took her child away.

Sign the petition demanding accountability for Philando Castile and Alton Sterling’s murders.

Philando Castile complied with the officers’ orders. He had a concealed carry permit. The only thing he could’ve done to avoid being killed was to not be Black yesterday. 

There’s a lot we can’t make sense of, but one thing is clear after these two hard days: Law and order is not going to save us. Policing in our communities does NOT equal safety. It has been nearly two years since protestors in Ferguson inspired a national outcry for police accountability.3 But our leaders have only increased their investment in the very police departments that are killing us. They do this with body cameras, racially-biased policing software, and ‘Blue Lives Matter’ bills while Black communities deal with the same outcomes of police terror and over-incarceration.4

The Department of Justice still hasn’t agreed to launch a federal investigation into Philando’s murder–but we’re calling on them to bring accountability to the Baton Rouge and Falcon Heights police departments and bring charges in both Alton Sterling’s and Philando Castile’s cases. Will you sign the petition?

I don’t want to wake up to another police killing tomorrow or the day after that.

-Arisha

Alton Sterling did not deserve to die.Hv

Tell the Department of Justice: Don’t waste any time. Bring charges against the officers that killed Alton Sterling NOW.

Take Action

Dear Elise,

Alton Sterling was a 37-year-old Black father of five selling CDs outside of a local store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.5 He did not deserve to die.

Yet here we are again. Another Black man slain by police. Another hashtag carrying the fury and pain of his community. And another family deep in mourning – in the same state that passed the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ bill to silence protests against police violence.6

News just broke that the FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division will be leading an independent investigation into his murder – and we have to keep up the pressure until they deliver accountability.7 Will you sign the petition demanding the Department of Justice bring charges against the two officers that killed Alton Sterling?

Tell the Department of Justice: Don’t waste any time. Bring charges against the officers that killed Alton Sterling NOW.

On Tuesday night, Alton Sterling was selling CDs outside a local store, like he always does, when police arrived on the scene. The police tased him, held him down on the ground, and shot him in the chest and back. In the witness-recorded video, you can hear the officer shouting « If you f—ing move, I swear to God! »8

The Baton Rouge police pulled a gun out of his pocket after they killed him. However, witness accounts say Sterling was not holding the gun, and his hands were never near his pockets. This is eerily akin to the killing of Eric Garner.9

When Alton Sterling’s aunt, Sandra Sterling, heard about the killing and tried to identify her nephew, the Baton Rouge police – showing no remorse for what they had just done – threatened to taser her too.10 These officers have no respect for Black life, and must be held accountable.

Tell the Department of Justice to hold the officers that killed Alton Sterling accountable.

It’s no coincidence that Alton Sterling’s murder took place in the same state that signed the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ law designed to feign protection of police instead of actually protecting Black lives – or that Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate across the country.11

In so many ways, Black people are under attack in Louisiana. But an independent investigation by the Department of Justice could mean systemic changes in local policing as well as accountability for Alton Sterling’s killers. When the FBI and DOJ took over the Walter Scott investigation, it led to multiple indictments including a murder charge from the state.12 If thousands of us stand up now, we can make sure the Department of Justice brings charges against Alton Sterling’s murderers too.

Sign the petition. Demand the Department of Justice ensures accountability for Alton Sterling’s murder.

Until Justice is Real,

–Scott, Rashad, Arisha, Clarise, Enchanta and the rest of the ColorOfChange team.

July 8 on your calendar – the next meeting of the Democratic Platform Committee in Orlando, Florida.

Save the Date. Before the Convention in Philadelphia.

Bernie Sanders for President

Sisters, Brothers and Friends,

Our struggle over the Democratic Party platform is about making clear that we intend to create an economy that works for all of us, and not just the wealthy and powerful.

Now, we’ve made some great progress to include a number of very important initiatives that we have been fighting to achieve during this campaign. Major accomplishments that will begin to move this country in the right direction like breaking up huge financial institutions and enacting a 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act, a historic expansion of Social Security, taking on the greed of the pharmaceutical companies, banning private prisons, eliminating super PACs, and moving to public financing of elections, and more.

But more needs to be done. And the most important issue is to make it clear that we must defeat the disastrous Trans-Pacific Partnership.

So I want you to mark July 8 on your calendar – that is the next meeting of the Democratic Platform Committee in Orlando, Florida. Between now and then, our job is to do everything we can to rally support for an amendment to the platform in strong opposition to the TPP.

And I believe that if we all make our voices heard between now and then, we can win this fight:

Add your name to tell the DNC Platform Committee to make sure the party’s platform includes our amendment to prevent the disastrous TPP trade deal from ever coming up for a vote.

Let me be clear: this is not about embarrassing anyone. This is about preventing the outsourcing of jobs, protecting the environment, stopping pharmaceutical companies from increasing the price of prescription drugs, preserving our democracy, and respecting human rights.

This is about you and millions of other people making our voices heard that we need to create a Democratic Party which fights for working families and not wealthy campaign contributors.

If we succeed, we will be in a very strong position to stop a vote on the TPP and to fundamentally rewrite our trade agreements to end the race to the bottom and lift up the living standards of people in this country and throughout the world.

That is the work of our political revolution, and you are the revolutionaries. And I believe that if we continue to stand together and fight for the values we share, we will transform the Democratic Party.

But that starts with bringing the entire party together and speaking with one voice in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership:

Add your name to tell the DNC Platform Committee to make sure the party’s platform includes our amendment to prevent the disastrous TPP trade deal from ever coming up for a vote.

It is imperative that this platform be not only the most progressive in the history of the Democratic Party, but that it includes a set of policies that will be fought for and implemented by Democratic elected officials.

I am going to do everything I can to rally support in Orlando for our amendment opposing the TPP. But I want to be clear that if we fail there we are going to take this fight to the floor of the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia next month.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

ADD YOUR NAME


FOR PHILADELPHIA

Bernie Sanders for President

Before our nearly 1,900 delegates can vote at the Democratic convention next month, we need to actually get them to Philadelphia.

Here’s the thing: our delegates are not wealthy campaign contributors. They’re not party insiders or establishment elites. They’re working folks, and it’s not easy for many of them to fly to Philly and stay in hotels for a week.

We really need to have all of our delegates at the Democratic convention because we expect there could be critical votes for the party platform and electoral process. We’d hate to fall short on these votes because some of our delegates couldn’t afford to go to the convention.

You’d be shocked at how expensive it is to attend the Democratic convention. It can cost more than $4,000 per delegate!

Hotels are booked months in advance, and then resold at higher prices. Lobbyists throw all sorts of fancy parties. It’s easy for the political establishment to navigate this and know whom to call to find the right way in. That, or they’re wealthy enough to pay for themselves.

Our political revolution is not made up of people like that. Our folks need help to get to the convention and stay there.

You can make sure all our delegates represent Bernie at the Democratic convention. Can you help us before Thursday’s midnight FEC fundraising deadline?

Contribute $2.70 to our campaign and make sure that Bernie’s delegates can get to the Democratic convention, so we can have our entire political revolution represented next month in Philadelphia.

Thank you for stepping up to help the members of our political revolution.

In solidarity,

Jeff Weaver
Campaign Manager

Amtrak. The train of Agony. Deadly.

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.

The « black box » of the Amtrak train that derailed Tuesday in Philadelphia has been recovered, and it is being analyzed at an Amtrak operations center in Delaware, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter says.

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).

 Not only the Big American Five are piling huge amount of money out of America, holding back the  scale of  Home recovery as well as the World, we have the case of Nike explained by Eurasianews. TransPacific Partnership Will Undermine Democracy, Empower Transnational Corporations – OpEd

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.

Transcript of a Press Briefing by Gerry Rice, Director, Communications Department, International Monetary Fund

Washington, D.C.
Thursday, May 14, 2015

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.

Excerpts.

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.

 Visit The IMF website for the whole topic.

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 » .

Minister: 3 bodies found with wreckage of missing U.S. helicopter in Nepal. (CNN)

Burundi’s descent into chaos.

« 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.

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. Quote from our previous post.

Acceleration of time for the TPP ?

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.
