Obama Won't Appoint Elizabeth Warren Why?

We Already Have Appointed a Woman, What More Do You Want?

Professor Elizabeth Warren
I have to admit truth to truth, Elizabeth Warren would set the consumer raping industry [banks] on its ear, were she appointed as Chair of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, IF AND ONLY IF, she actually had any power in the position.  As it stands now, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is under the thumb of the Federal Reserve, which is like putting the fox in charge of the chickens.  Give it 6 months and there will be no Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to speak of.  It's already starting to happen as we speak.

Enter Robert Gibbs, White House spokesman, on Elizabeth Warren's potential to be a candidate: "I don't think any criticism, in any way, by anybody would disqualify her."  Yet Obama has not nominated her at all.  Gee I wonder why this is?  Could it be the very people, whom he stole money from taxpayers, to bail out, would have a cow?  The powers that be are showing their muscle by Obama not appointing Elizabeth Warren to the position. 

According to the National Journal, the banking industry "privately grumbles that Warren would be their least favorite candidate to head the agency." Or, as Floyd Norris put it in the New York Times, "whether or not she is named to run the bureau may depend on how willing the president is to anger the banks."

Warren is one of the best people for the position. Picking her is a no-brainer. Rarely does a president have the opportunity for such a plethora of best people for the job, when it comes to appointing someone to a position.  This position, at this time, being filled by Elizabeth Warren is one of those rare opportunities.  Change huh?

Not only is she one of the country's foremost experts on bankruptcy law and the multiple ways in which banks trick and trap consumers, she's been the leading advocate for the creation of the agency, which the banking industry worked night and day to kill. In fact, it was Warren who came up with the idea for the agency in the first place, in a paper she wrote in 2007.

Senators and Congressmen alike are lining up to laud Warren as the best possible choice:

  • Sen. Al Franken: "In my consideration, I think Elizabeth would be the best."
  • Rep. Barney Frank (chair of the House committee that drafted the financial reform bill): "She's far and away the best candidate."
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders: "No one in our nation could do a better job."
  • Rep. Rosa DeLauro: "In my living room with many members of congress, she predicted what was going to happen several years ago. As she put it in 2007, consumers cannot buy a toaster that has a one in five chance of bursting into flames but they can enter into a mortgage that has the same one in five chance of putting them out onto the street...Professor Warren we cannot, Ma'am, do it without you."
  • Sen. Jeff Merkley: "I support Elizabeth Warren...She has both the clarity of the need for an agency that has as its top mission protecting citizens against tricks, traps and scams, and she has the ability to articulate that vision. She has the leadership skills and the knowledge of the financial world. She has the full set of requirements to be an effective leader."
  • Sen. Tom Udall: "Should [the president] decide to nominate her to lead the Bureau, it will be a clear sign that the Bureau will be a champion for the American consumer, will stand up to unscrupulous actors and will not shrink from...fulfilling its mission under pressure."

Secretary Tim Geithner:

She is an enormously effective advocate for reform. Probably the most effective advocate for consumer protection in the country. She has huge credibility and she played a decisive role in helping make the public case for reform and she was early on this, way ahead of everybody else. - Sunday on ABC's This Week

If you know about Goldman Sachs Geithner  you know why he has stopped short of endorsing Warren (and, indeed, privately argued against her)?

Critics like Senetor Chris Dodd told NPR's Diane Rehm:

"The question is, 'is she confirmable?' And there's a serious question about it." And today he challenged Robert Gibbs' assertion that Warren is "very confirmable": "How does he know that?"

With mid-term elections on our doorstep, it's rather easy to be bold:

"Are the Republicans, when we bring her name up, going to argue that she shouldn't be confirmed because she's too tough on the big banks and too tough on the financial industry?" asked Senetor Tom Harkin. "Boy, that'll get them a lot of votes in November!"

Unfortunately there is a provision in the financial reform bill the president signed into law last week that allows the Treasury Secretary to name someone to head the Consumer Bureau until the Senate confirms a presidential nominee.  There is no way Goldman Sachs Geithner will appoint Warren in the interim.

"The statute gives the Treasury Secretary the obligation to get it done, but doesn't tell him how to get it done," says Gail Hillebrand of the Consumers Union. "Consumers have been waiting a long time. The sooner we can get it off the ground the better."

Media outlets would have you think this is a Republican Democrat thing, however if you've been paying attention to this blog, you know it isn't.  The democrats are no more beholden to the banks than the Republicans are.  They are all bought and paid for.

Elizabeth Warren vs Tim Geithner
Opposition marketing spin currently being test-marketed is that because Warren is such a zealous advocate for consumers she would somehow be bad for "innovation." The same innovation that brought us credit default swaps, teaser rates, 600 percent payday loan rates, and that led to widespread foreclosures and bankruptcies. This line of reasoning is akin to saying that we don't want our police force to be very vigilant, lest it diminish criminal innovation. Warren herself addressed this ludicrous claim in a paper in 2008:

Innovation in financial products has produced incomprehensible terms and sharp practices that have left families at the mercy of those who write the contracts.  This is exactly why the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created in the first place. If someone with Warren's skill set and perspective isn't named to head it, why even bother creating it? Just so another banking industry shill has a place to cool his heels before adding a few zeros to his salary when he quits and joins the companies he was ostensibly regulating? Given that this is the usual M.O. of how regulatory agencies in Washington work, it's all the more important to name Warren so she can start the Consumer Bureau off on the right foot -- as a true voice for the people.

So which way will Obama go? If he makes his decision on the merits, Elizabeth Warren will be the first head of the Consumer Bureau. If he makes his decision out of fear, she won't be. For guidance, he should listen carefully to his own words:

All too often -- our government made decisions based upon fear rather than foresight, and all too often trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, we too often set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And in this season of fear, too many of us -- Democrats and Republicans; politicians, journalists and citizens -- fell silent... if we continue to make decisions from within a climate of fear, we will make more mistakes.

That was Barack Obama in May of last year, talking about the Bush administration's approach to national security in the wake of 9/11. As he finds himself in a different kind of "season of fear," will he use his insights as a guide to his decision?

Arizona Immigration Law: Perfectly Constitutional

Trying to Tear Down States Rights Over Federal Cowardice

Gov. Jan Brewer
While the country is going to hell in a handbasket, so many news organizations are steadily heaping logs onto the fire.  Instead of them actually reporting factual news, they instead "report" a bunch of drama surrounding the news.  This sells papers and advertisement, and makes EVERYONE dumber than they were 2 minutes before reading the stories.  This is exactly the case surrounding the Arizona immigration law controversy.  Instead of them reporting that the 9th circuit court of appeals refuses to listen to the case, because THERE IS NO CASE, they instead tell you they refuse to "get into the controversy".  They even quote democrats, versus a republican governor, who says that the law is "laughable."  What's laughable is that the federal government is trying to trump a state's right to protect itself, its economy and its citizens from unchecked illegal immigration that is destroying the state from the inside.  They don't report how these illegal immigrants are not the supposed hard working salt of the earth people seeking a better life, but a bunch of gang-bangers, underage prostitution runners, human traffickers, who are all murdering people, burning people's homes and shutting down entire infrastructures.

Let me report the news as it should have been reported.  No emotions, no drama, no scandal, I'll give you just the boring facts.

The facts are the Obama administration has very powerful friends that want virtual slave labor in the country.  They only see the illegal immigrants as potential second class citizens they can use and abuse.  They don't care that these illegals are not the hard working folks everyone tries to portray them as in the media.  In fact only 1 in 7 is that hard working.  Quite a few get on the government dole as soon as they cross the border and are a drain on the economy.  But these big people don't care, they would prefer to just get millions and millions in so that 1 in 7 can be millions, regardless of the other 6 in 7.

In steps Arizona, a border state, that cannot take it any more.  Murder, prostitution, drugs, arson, chaos, anarchy, is enough to get anyone's attention.  The public outcry by border towns could not be ignored any longer.  So the legislators and Governor Jan Brewer stepped in with applying the constitution to their state.

Actual La Raza Poster
Unlike those who don't understand, the federal government is NOT the supreme law of the land.  States have equal power to the federal government and has always had equal power.  In fact, time and again the supreme court has bowed to a state's right to regulate itself, over wishes by the federal government.  Only in egregious instances of state abusing citizens has the courts allowed the federal government to step in on the citizen's behalf, i.e. Blacks being lynched, genital mutilation and jim crow.  But, this is not that instance.  The protection of the constitution does not blanket non-citizens, to begin with, and the citizens that ARE being abused are the citizens of the state and not the illegal immigrants.

However, what you see in the press is emotional pictures of old women crying, supposedly opposing the law.  These marches and protests are organized by people who have an agenda that you will never hear about in the news.  What is this agenda?  Pure and simple, racism.  These groups want Mexicans to come to the U.S. unchecked, without stipulation, without any litmus tests whatsoever.  They want to transplant, if they can, the entire Mexican country inside the U.S.  And, why is this? for political gain and power.  They have already started, by getting legislation passed in many other states that would tie the hands of all law enforcement agencies, including the federal government, from determining immigration status, checking citizenship I.D. for gaining benefits, voting.

The Arizona legislation was a tremendous blow to this racist agenda of unchecked illegal Mexican immigration.  However, these immigrants destroyed the very thing that they came here for, the economies of many border towns.  Whole school districts had to close due to lack of funding and tax payer input.  Hospitals had to shut down due to non-payment by illegal immigrants getting services and not paying for them, by the hundreds of thousands.  Clinics had to shut down due to lack of funding.  Civic infrastructure had to shut down.  When 40% of the population is paying for the entire infrastructure of businesses and state benefits, they will shut down and go out of business. The load is too much for such a small paying population to bear.

La Raza Protest March
The crimes go unreported in the national media surrounding illegal immigrants.  If they do, they are immediately called bigots and racist for reporting it.  If police dedicate themselves to busting illegal immigrant gangs that have contracts to kill-on-sight Black people [real story] they are called racist cops for targeting latinos.  If a cop pull over a criminal, with no insurance to cover the cost of him destroying a city bus with his car, and asks for immigration status, he's called a racist.

The agenda of these racist organizations to allow illegal immigration into the country, unchecked, is completely out of hand.  It has hampered many many state and local authorities right to protect their own citizens.

Getting back the Obama administration.  Unless you've been under a rock for the past century, the presidency is not a controlling position in the U.S.  It is controlled by very powerful lobbies and business interests.  The fallout of competing interests were made readily apparent, to anyone with a brain, in the George W. Bush elections 2000 and 2004.  The veil was pulled aside, briefly, so that everyone could see the man behind the curtain.  So as mentioned earlier these powers allow these racist organizations to thrive and continue unabated with their vile agenda.  It [the organizations] serves their [the powers that be] purpose nicely.

Enter the courts.  U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton blocked the law by imposing an injunction for it going forward.

"Basically we believe (the law) is constitutional but she obviously pointed out faults that can possibly be fixed, and that's what we would do," Brewer told The Associated Press.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton
In her temporary injunction Wednesday, Bolton delayed the most contentious provisions of the law, including a section that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. Bolton indicated the federal government's case has a good chance at succeeding in its argument that federal immigration law trumps state law.  Brewer has said she'll challenge the decision all the way to the Supreme Court.

Let's hope Governor Brewer does not cave into pressures from lobbies that have no public interest at heart.  This law is about safety and the constitutionality of a state's right to protect itself, for citizens to be safe and secure in their homes.  The press trying to convert this into an emotional issue of racism and bigotry, when the facts are people are hurting from illegal immigration.  People are dying from illegal immigration.  But the press would rather sell stories about how America is a big bad bully, instead of a story about it protecting its own citizens.

Johnson & Johnson and WalMart Poisoning Your Babies (video)

Class Action Law Suit Against Walmart Inc and Johnson & Johnson

In short this video shows that baby shampoo manufactured by J&J and Walmart contains methyline chloride a toxin that OSHA prevents contact with at construction sites, i.e. a person handling them must have a gas mask, protective eye-wear, protective gloves, and protective clothing.

Methylene chloride if you had been exposed to this stuff you get increased risk of developing cancer, adverse effects on the heart, central nervous system and liver, and skin or eye irritation. Exposure may occur through breathing, by absorption through the skin, or through contact with the skin. MC is a solvent, which is used in many different types of work activities, such as paint stripping, polyurethane foam manufacturing, and cleaning and degreasing.  So I am wonder how this stuff ended up being in children's shampoo, OSHA knew about this stuff and established controls of occupational exposure.  Now we find that Johnson's Baby shampoo and Wal-Marts Equate Tearless Baby wash both contain methylene chloride, banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in cosmetics Symptoms of being exposed to this stuff are effects on the central nervous system, headaches, disorientation, dizziness, fatigue, and decreased attention span; skin effects such as chapping, erythema, cracked skin, or skin burns; and cardiac effects such as chest pain or shortness of breath.

So we all assumed that baby shampoo was safe for our kids and we find that they are being poisoned and have risks of getting cancer.  A federal judge in New Jersey has allowed two proposed class action lawsuits to proceed against Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Johnson & Johnson over the sale of children's shampoo and baby wash allegedly containing a toxin linked to cancer
The charges against Johnson and Johnson are they are manufacturing several baby bath products with dangerous toxins and markets them safe for children Johnson & Johnson is also charged with falsely promoting these products as "gentle," "hypoallergenic," "dermatologist-tested," or "pediatrician recommended" for children.  Back on January 16, 2010 Johnson & Johnson issued a massive recall of over-the-counter drugs including Tylenol, Motrin and St. Joseph's aspirin because of a moldy smell that has made people sick.

It does make you wonder if big Pharma is creating products that make us sick and get the additional monetary gain by creating drugs that counter the damage they created in the first place. Sounds very similar to the swine flu hype don't you think.  The questions is what other products are causing harm for profit. Are we being deliberately being poisoned?

For Blacks: One in Ten Blacks Should Own a Business

Why Blacks Should Own Their Own Businesses

Ever since the start of racism on the planet against the Black man, has there been a struggle to get out from under the yolk of the white man and establish ourselves as not superior but equal to white men in every aspect of life.  The short sighted Black leaders of yesteryear and today plunged the Black man into a 50 year long struggle to gain equality at the end of a pen, i.e. "civil rights".  Every civil right was granted, every policy changed, every uneven law undone.  And yet Black people are in the same economic predicament that they were in since 1860.  Let me repeat that.  Black people controlled 0.5% of the U.S. wealth in 1860.  Today, in 2010, Black people control, including Oprah and Bill Cosby, 0.5% of the U.S. wealth.  And we are no more equal to white men now than we were in the 60s.

"There is no wealth like knowledge, no poverty like ignorance" - Ali ibn Abi-Talib

Black Owned Business
You do not grant equality.  It is taken by force.  A man does not beg you to treat him as your equal, he walks up to you and punches you in the face and tells you, you better treat him as an equal or there's more where that punch just came from.

"You can get more of what you want with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word." - Al Capone

Black people seem to run and cry to someone that will listen to their complaints rather than hire a lawyer and sue the piss out of someone that wronged them.

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" - Mao Zedong

We come now to the topic at hand.

The U.S. Black population, universally, tells their children to go to college, so that they might find a good job.  However, the statistic of white businesses that are started from college dwarf any other business start in life.  How can it be that Black parents tell their children to go to school to get a job, and yet the white counterparts start businesses going to the same exact school.

"The great masses of the people... will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one." - Adolf Hitler

After 50 years of civil rights, the median income gap between the Black man and white man is actually widening, not closing.  I've touched on this very subject in other article in my blog.  Search at your leisure.  How could this be that after the "tremendous strides" that our Black leaders like to say, we've made, that we are poorer today than we were 50 years ago?

Black Businessman
It's quite simple.  White business starts have increased.  Black businesses starts have decreased.  Also white recirculation of money has increased, while Black circulation of money within our community has fallen off a cliff.  Every Black dollar spent by a Black person in the U.S. loses $11.00.  That means, that although we have $1 trillion in income, that comes into Black hands, effectively we lose $11 trillion.  Every solitary dollar in the Black community is spent into someone else's community.  Black people cannot hold on to any money for any period of time.

"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, but the one most responsive to change." - Charles Darwin

Finally, because of point A and point B, Blacks control no real estate to any extent.  Although several cities are predominantly Black to a very high margin, not one Black person controls any center of power in so far as commercial real estate is concerned.  Black dominate certain industries and yet control no center of power in those industries.  There are companies which are predominately Black in their employee roster, yet no Black holds a position of ultimate authority.  That is not to say there are not Black CEOs etc.  That is to say, in these Black dominated industries or companies, Blacks have no say as to how Blacks will be treated in the company or industry.  Meaning you can have a company that is 75% Black and yet Blacks are mistreated out of hand and nothing is done about it, because there is no 75% Black dominated members of the board.  One Black CEO, equality does not make.

Why One in Ten?

What is so magical about one in ten Black people owning a business?  It is the measure of wealth that would mean we are finally equal.  But let's first look at the word wealth.

Wealth is nothing more than the value of store surplus labor, i.e. those goods which can be equated to the labor that went into producing it.  Wealth is not income.  Income has nothing to do with wealth.  Measuring wealth only implies a good already present, not an incoming good.

So then, owning your own business is the only true source of wealth in this country.  Why is this so?  Easily, I'll show you a measurement that does measure income, insofar as it applies to wealth.  I have gone over this before, but it bears more careful consideration here.

Median Family Income

  1. Asian $55,000 - $56,000 
  2. Whites $54,000
  3. Hispanic $32,000
  4. Black $19,700
Obviously there is a huge gap between white wealth and Black wealth.  But, simply looking at the number does you no good if you do not understand the why of it.  Let's take a look then as how can we arrive at this wealth measurement with each race.  The majority of Blacks have no idea why we all are so poor.  It is a mystery to them.

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke

Racial Breakdown of Per-Capita Business Ownership

  1. Asian 1 in 10 in business
  2. White 1 in 34 in business
  3. Hispanic 1 in 54 in business
  4. Black 1 in 104 in business
It is readily seen that the huge disparity in wealth is directly related to the accumulation of businesses.  Every community that practices racism therefore is behooved to own as many businesses as possible.  Business then is an entity which takes in raw goods and maximizes profits from them.  This simple definition can apply to any business, even a service business, i.e. uses human labor as a profitable vehicle.  So then if you wish to practice racism you simply get your group to accumulate as many businesses as possible.

"Corporations, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility" - Ambrose Bierce

As you can see, the top of the list in income are the Asian group.  The magical number that they have is, you guessed it 1 in 10 in business.  As blacks wishing to practice racism them, we should concern ourselves with reaching that magical number.  Yes, white control of centers of power and awarding of contracts to firm, may in fact go to only white firms, yes even still today, with Obama as president, if more and more Blacks were to simply open up firms, we could finally commune within our own community.

Nationally, African Americans businesses are getting shorted in stimulus contracts under the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). According to statistics from the Transportation Equity Network (TEN), in December 2009, the U.S. Department of Transportation had awarded $163.8 million in direct contract, with only $16.8 million, or about 10 percent, going to minority-owned businesses, $4.7 million, or about 3 percent, had been awarded to Hispanic-owned firms. No black-owned firm had received a single contract from the DOT stimulus pot of money. The shortchanging of black and other minority firms has trickled down to local governments.

Black businesses also need to be stimulated in these tough economic times. Atlanta’s black-owned firms still face discrimination when it comes to city contracts. This is not a small point since more than 60 percent of the employees of minority-owned firms are people of color. According to a 2006 disparity study, Black and other minority-owned firms accounted for 48 percent of city service contracts in fiscal year 2005, up from 33 percent in 2001. Minority firms won $150 million of the total $312 million contracts in 2005 for private construction, engineering and related services. The expansion of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was fertile ground for contract. However, minority firms received a much smaller share of city goods and commodities contracts.
With nearly 64,000 firms, Metro Atlanta is home to more black-owned businesses per-capita than anywhere except the nation's capital. These firms employ mostly African Americans. This shortchanging of black-owned firms will likely continue unabated if some type of “set-aside” program and stronger accountability and transparency in tracking the use of all federal funds for economic stimulus and job creation. The awarding of stimulus dollars is one clear signal that we are not living in a “post-racial” society—even with the election of President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.

Black owned firms hire more Blacks than any other firms put together.  Yes we have upwards of 50% unemployment among Black men, but if the other 50% of Black men were to open firms, they would hire Blacks and that number would shrink or disappear.

Community Recirculation of Money

Buying from Black Owned Businesses
Buying from Black owned businesses is a major issue in our community right now.  However, if 1 in 10 Blacks owned businesses it would be a non-issue.  As it stands now 1 in 104 Blacks own a business.  You would have to search and search just to find the Black owned business.

Also with the mass exodus of Blacks from prior Black communities, there's no way that our businesses and communities can thrive.  Middle class Blacks flee from inner cities, with some foolish notion that they are moving to a better place.  Meanwhile, white city councils are giving money to whites to move to these inner city neighborhoods for "renovation" purposes, i.e. to oust poor Blacks.  So the affluent Blacks are rushing away from the very neighborhoods affluent whites are flocking to, and getting paid to do so.  Some Black communities which are more than 100 years old have already begun to disappear.  Had these affluent Blacks simply turned around and opened up businesses in these communities, the very act of opening the business would have done more for the community than them leaving ever could.  Because invariably they would hire Blacks from the area.  This income would translate into larger buying power for the community directly.  And, as more and more Blacks firms open in the area, a sustainable community is reborn.  Young teens which suffer the highest unemployment rate in America would have jobs, since entry level positions would be filled by them.  That means, block gangs and juvenile delinquency would plummet.

As more Black firms would open in the community, assuming the firms would be diverse, and not all liquor stores or clothing stores, the community could thrive.  Hopefully grocers and such would be opened, the least represented business in Black communities.

"When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint.  When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist" - Dom Helder Camara

The magical number is 1 in 10.  If 1 in 10 Blacks opened businesses, we would be wealthier than Asians.  Why?  Because we are 3 times the population of Asians.  Notice Whites are only 1 in 34 in business, yet they are on par with Asians.  That's simply because of their huge numbers.  If we got 1 in 10 Blacks to open a business we would surpass whites and asians in wealth.

"The Earth is the cradle of the mind, but one cannot eternally live in a cradle." - Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky

Forget pie in the sky, and a better day tomorrow, money makes the world go around.  Wealth is power all by itself.  Anyone that tells you different is selling you for a fool.

Man Arrested for Smuggling 18 Titi Monkeys in His Socks

Weird Stories: 18 Monkeys Smuggled into Mexico City Airport

The Tiny Titi Monkey
A man was found with no less than 18 monkeys inside his clothing, attempting to smuggle them into Mexico.  A Mexican citizen, Roberto Sol Cabrera, arriving from Lima, Peru was arrested at Mexico City's international airport.  The discovery was made after a random check was conducted.  He had put the 18 Titi monkey's in a waist girdle.  What tipped the police off was that the man was acting nervously.

After questioning the man said, originally he had put the monkeys in his luggage.  He later removed them, he said, to protect them from X-rays” when going through customs.  Cabrera had originally placed the monkeys in socks inside the luggage.  Sadly two of the animals died before the discovery was made.

What is unique about Titi monkey is that they are found in South America and are a protected endangered species.  To own them requires a possession permit.  The permit is pretty pricey, which is a far cry from what Cabrera said he had paid for them.  He confessed to paying simply $30 per monkey.  In the underground wild species trade, these Titi monkeys will fetch a cool $775 up to $1,550 per monkey.

According to an international wildlife trade monitoring network named Traffic, wild animal trafficking is a serious problem in Mexico.  Adrian Reuter, a representative for the group, said:

“The reasons are two: one, because Mexico is an important route for those who want to smuggle animals into the US, and the other, because, as in other countries of Latin America, there is a deep-rooted tradition of having wild animals as pets."

The remaining monkeys will be returned to proper authorities who will send the monkeys back and reintroduce them into the wild.  "We hope".  [knowing the rife corruption in Mexico, it's a wonder that the authorities themselves won't sell the monkeys on the underground, but you didn't hear that from me, cuz I ain't one to gossip]

Donner Party Discovery, Lincoln Personal Letters

Donner Party, Scandals and Murder Oh My!

The Donner Party
In a statement released Monday, July 19th, 2010, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum said that Donner Party member James Reed and his family carried muster rolls with Lincoln's name on them among their treasured heirlooms.  Researchers had made the unexpected discovery among the effects of a member of the Donner Party kept in a carpetbag on the group's sojourn to California.  It turned out to be a military document with Abraham Lincoln's own handwriting on it.  It took a team of librarians, historians and handwriting experts to confirm that the handwriting was indeed of President Lincoln on the document.  The document lists Lincoln and volunteer soldiers who fought in the 1832 Black Hawk War.

"We often find documents that detail fascinating stories about Abraham Lincoln's life and times, but it is rare indeed for the document to have such an intriguing history after it was written," said Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. "That these documents detail part of Lincoln's military service and that they accompanied the Donner Party to California makes them doubly significant."

All four of the muster rolls include "Private Abraham Lincoln" among the list of soldiers. On one of them, experts say two-and-a-half lines are clearly written in Lincoln's hand. And the documents reveal that Lincoln had a horse worth $85 and equipment valued at $15, noting that Lincoln received one tent that was United States property to be returned at the end of his service.

The lines Lincoln wrote said: "Muster Roll of Captain Jacob M. Earleys Company of Mounted Volunteers Mustered out of the service of the United States By order of Brigadier General Atkinson of the United States army on White Water Rivers of Rock River on the 10th day of July 1832."

The documents are part of the James Frazier Reed Collection at the California State Library.  Reed's name appears just beneath Lincoln's on the list. He was one of the organizing members of the Donner Party, the group of pioneers known for resorting to cannibalism while enduring a harsh winter in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Lincoln Muster Roll
He likely inherited the papers from the military company's commander and took them with him when he left Springfield, Illinois, in April 1846 because they were part of his personal history, the Lincoln Presidential Library said.

While historians believe the papers accompanied the Donner Party for their entire journey, Reed did not. He was banished from the group after fighting with a teamster and stabbing him to death, Monday's library statement said.  He left the papers with his wife after being expelled from the party, and "she brought them safely in her bosom to California when helped by the first relief party which went to their assistance," daughter Martha Jane "Patty" Reed recalled.

Isaiah Mustafa Old Spice Commercial

Isaiah Mustafa Old Spice Commercial

Isaiah Mustafa in Old Spice Commercial
If you haven't seen this great commercial staring Isaiah Mustafa, then I present it here for your viewing pleasure.  Of course the commercial is aimed at men, but it's aimed at men, who think that women will want a man that smells like old spice, so it's aimed at women who will aim it at men, so men will subconsciously buy it to get women.  What's really confusing is Isaiah Mustafa is half naked through the entire commercial.

So how is it aimed at men exactly?  Well, I'll tell you since, I happen to be a man.  The entire commercial is done using a technical feet called one take.  That's right, the actor delivering the script says the entire commercial all in one take.  As if that weren't super crazy technical, oh shiny enough for a guy, there's lots going on in that one take that is eye candy, and no I'm not talking about Isaiah Mustafa.  There is continuous morphing of not only Isaiah's clothing, but there's special effects in his hands and the background.  He goes from shower, to boat, to beach, to horse all in one take.  Meanwhile in his hand he has shower gel, clam, tickets, diamonds, shower gell all in one take.  Finally he has a deep manly voice delivered throughout the commercial, which, while deemed good to a woman, is something men would want to emulate for women.

Isaiah was nominated for an Emmy for this commercial, and NBC has signed him up for a show.  I consider it of utmost importance that the entire country outwardly is lusting after a Black man as the symbol of pure good and manliness, something kept hush hush for centuries now.  The video alone on youtube received 12 million hits since it was uploaded.  That is a complete viral number.

Racism Definition


If you go look up the term racism in the dictionary it will instead give you the definition of bigotry.  I'm sure many of you just went blank trying to think how racism and bigotry are different.  The idiocy of the matter is that those that are in fact racist have overwhelmingly redefined the term so that those who are the underclass cannot ever hope to understand what racism is and how to thereby defeat the oppressors.

If you are smart, you can already see what the true definition of racism is.  It is not bigotry.  It is not prejudice.  It is not even hatred.

1. a competitive relationship between groups of people that are competing for the control of wealth, resources and power.

2. a group phenomenon whereby one group seeks to exploit another group so that all wealth, resources and power is given to the first group at the complete expense of the second group.
Racism did not exist until the 17th century.  Many white people today don't even recognize what racism is.  The primary source of racism was slavery.  Later as technology advanced slavery was unnecessary to keep Blacks in America an underclass.  Blacks could be exploited at will since, after slavery absolutely nothing was given to Blacks in observance of so called "emancipation".  To this day 99% of the wealth that was taken from Blacks is still enjoyed by whites and the interest from it is still making trillions of dollars yearly for the white race in America.

For those thinking that all minorities have it bad and we should group together, you're not paying attention.  Each race is racist except for Black people.  Black people are the only group that does not understand the concept of racism and that we are in competition with each other for the same resources.  Every group that has come to America has made it their agenda to further their group and their group alone to the exclusion of everyone else, EXCEPT Blacks.

Blacks were never brought here as immigrants.  We were brought here, overwhelmingly, as chattle.  As such we had nothing, started with nothing and ended with nothing.

If you think somehow "minorities" are all in the same boat you are sadly mistaken.  Some of the most powerful groups for other "minorities" are in fact practicing racism to the fullest extent.  Namely, Latino groups which seek to exclude everyone else but themselves, keep the influx of Latinos coming into the country, excluding Blacks from any of their talks, reforming immigration policy and reforming public funds to be distributed to them and them alone.

The same is true of all other "minority" groups.  Black people are the only ones who form a political group and willingly invite other minority groups into it.  Meanwhile, those very same groups form their own groups to further their own agenda for their sole gain.

If Black people do not get a firm understanding of what racism is, they will very soon be a permanent underclass.  They will even be a permanent underclass to current other "minorities".

By the way, most people think the word minority is strictly a numbers word.  They think minority is something that refers only to a group that has a number lesser than another group.  While that might be a mathematical definition, with humans nothing is that cut and dry.  Minority means that you are a lesser human.  In America specifically you are lesser than a white person.  Therefore calling yourself a minority is admitting to yourself that you are lesser than a white person.

No Black person should ever call themselves a minority.  We are not in the same category as the other non-whites to begin with.  There is absolutely no shared history between Blacks in America and anyone else on the face of the planet.  No mexican shares the same history.  No asian shares the same history.  No JEW shares the same history.  Do not hug someone because they are not white.  At the end of the day they are going to go to their local mexican / asian / jewish store and spend money there to make sure the money stays in their hands and not in yours.  Say hi, wave, what have you, save your hugs for your own brother.

I repeat, racism is a competition.  It is alive and well.  Learn to compete or die.  It is as simple as that.

Now if you have been paying attention, you should have noted two things:
  1. currently only whites are racist, because they are in the winning position
  2. Blacks have never been racist and cannot be racist because it is a group phenomenon
Anyone who calls a Black person a racist is completely ignorant of the English language.  Again, racist is not bigotry, nor prejudice, it is racism.  You cannot use the two interchangeably.

Let me make it patently clear.
  • not only will a racist exploit a group of people, but they will willingly have them very close to them, i.e. house slaves
  • a bigot does not tolerate another PERSON that belongs to a group and will shun them, to the point of not even wishing to see nor work along side them
  • racism is continuous and ongoing to this very day and probably will continue till the very last human is alive
  • many who were bigots have now changed hearts and now not only work with Black people, but have dinner with them and even consider them friends
  • bigotry is not an ongoing thing

If you are still not understanding, let me present a final comparison.  Even among white people, there is a select group of whites that feel they should be served by other whites who are not as well off as they are.  This is called classicism.  Where one class feels compelled to exploit another class of people.  The media tries to pretend that that is the only competition going on today.  This is of course patently false.  Not only is there classicism, but there is also racism.

In America today, to be poor, Black and a man is a 3 strike rule.  The wealthy elites would like nothing more than to exploit poor, Black, men like no other group alive.  Wake up and compete.

[ I will go over how to compete in a later post ]

For Blacks: Black Income Versus Black Businesses

Black Median Household Income

A Black Businessman
I have spoken on this many times.  But, I'd like to revisit this today due to the boiling point of the economy right now.  In some parts of the country Blacks are at a 50% unemployment rate.  This rate will become more and more widespread as the economy sinks deeper and deeper into chaos.  As labor becomes more of a burden on a business owner as the economy sinks lower, they will get rid of more and more people before going out of business.

More often than not Blacks are terminated from jobs than any other racial group in America.
In Richard Freeman's (1973) classic study of racial patterns of labor market status from 1947 to 1972, he found that the level of employment for blacks was more volatile than for whites with respect to business cycle conditions. He also found that rates of unemployment for blacks and whites had similar proportionate responses to changes in the business cycle. Thus, when the economy weakens, the unemployment rate for blacks rises more than that for whites in percentage points. Freeman (1973:77) concluded that these findings support "the widely asserted last in, first out pattern of black employment over the cycle." bNet
If anyone tells you different you now know the truth.

So my point isn't that unemployment is bad.  My point isn't that unemployment is up for Blacks.  My point is median family income.
  1. Asian Family income - $55,000.00
  2. White Family income - $53,000.00 - $54,000.00
  3. Hispanic Family income - $32,000.00 - $33,000.00
  4. Black Family income - $19,400.00
That right there should shame every Black person reading this article.  I am going to both tell you not only why, it starts at the horrible level, but also why it stays at that level.

How Black Median Family Income is the Worst

So the first introduction to median family income is the understanding of how the median income is calculated and how Black median family income is so disgusting.  Of course median family income is a simple calculation where you round up a coherent group, sum up their wealth and pick the very middle of the range for that particular group.  This is considered to be a much better indicator of how a group really is because the average can be skewed by extremely high numbers or extremely low numbers.  Median doesn't suffer from these disparities.  So throwing a Bill Gates into the white family income does almost nothing to a median white family income calculation.  But, neither does throwing an Oprah Winfrey into the calculation for median Black family income.

Ok so that is the mechanics involved.  How is the Black median family income so terrible?  It is quite simple really and here is a nice easy list to show you.
  1. Asian Family income - $55,000.00 [ 1 in 10 are in business]
  2. White Family income - $53,000.00 - $54,000.00 [ 1 in 34 are in business ]
  3. Hispanic Family income - $32,000.00 - $33,000.00 [  1 in 54 are in business ]
  4. Black Family income - $19,400.00 [ 1 in 104 are in business ]

You can readily see exactly how a complete lack of wealth damages the Black family income.  But, that is not all.  There is a second part to that.  It is not enough to say that 1 in 104 Blacks only run a business, there is wealth accumulation involved as well.  We are, in fact, talking about wealth aren't we?

Why Black Median Family Income is Last

There is the why that number is systematically kept low.  I have said before, desegregation was the single most horrific event for Black Americans.  It did absolutely nothing to further Blacks as a race.  Absolutely nothing was gain from desegregation.  Black people are no more free today than they were pre-desegregation era.

I am about to show you why this lie was hoisted on you and why your own Black leaders fooled you.  Numbers do not lie.  Numbers do not judge.  Numbers tell you exactly what is going on.

Let me first inform you, in case you did not know, of what the environment was like for Blacks before desegregation hit America.  Before desegregation, Blacks lived in a separate part of town.  Where ever you went, Blacks had their own section of town, city, or village.  Blacks were systematically forbidden from hanging out in the white section of town.  Blacks were also forbidden from even entering some establishments and nearly no public services were available to Blacks.  Sounds horrible?  Sure, unless you consider this part.  Because Blacks were forbidden to enter white establishments or partake in public services, Blacks had their own businesses, public services and education.

Due to desegregation Black busineses shut down, public services shut down and education shut down.  This is what desegregation did.  In response to desegregation, white politicians redistricted Black communities so that it separated Black communities and made absolutely sure a slim minority of Blacks voted with an obvious majority of white voters.

So desegregation not only gutted all Black businesses, it also removed all Black voting power.  So from 1956 to present Blacks have always come in last in median family income.  And here is why.  To sustain oneself as a group, the money must change hands within the group 8-12 times before leaving the group.  Let me put that in simpler terms.  All money Black people make, from jobs, business or services, needs to go to another Black person 12 times before it leaves out of the Black community, for the Black community to survive.

With that definition in mind then, let's take a look at our list and see what is happening:
  1. Hispanic money bounces 6-7 times
  2. White money bounces 8-12 times
  3. Arab and Asian money bounces 13-14 times
  4. Jewish money bounces 18 times
  5. Black money ...... DOES NOT BOUNCE AT ALL
It is enough to make you cry.  But wait, there's more bad news.  Not only does Black money not bounce at all, but every dollar that a Black person spends, the entire Black community loses $11.

Let me repeat that and put it separate so you can see it boldly and clearly.
  • All Black money is completely lost out of the community and no incoming money is kept not even once
  • Every dollar spent by a black person, 11 dollars is flushed down the drain in loses
That is why Black median income comes in last place.  That is why Black median income is declining.  That is why Black median income stays in last place.

Conclusion to Black Median Household Income

It isn't Obama.  It isn't the KluKluxKlan.  It is your own ignorance, in the most technical sense of the word. [ ignorance means you do not know. not stupid, which means you know and ignore it. ]  You are ignorant of the fact of how to accumulate wealth, and even with wealth, you do not know how to keep the wealth you do have.

The only way to equality for a Black person is to own his own business.  The only way to equality for a Black person is to buy all of his goods and services from a Black owned business.  The only way to equality for a Black person is for a community of Black people to open their own businesses and services and only shop from each other.

There is no other road to equality.  Forget Dr. Martin Luther King.  He didn't know.   Forget Malcom X.  He didn't know either.  Forget Louis Farrakhan.  He doesn't know, or maybe he's not sharing it with you.  [ of them all, he might actually know ]

Black people need to own:
  • grocery stores
  • convenience stores
  • gas stations
  • fast food restaurants
  • restarurants
  • supply stores
  • restaurant supply stores
  • hair salons
  • nail salons
  • day spas
  • shoe stores
  • beauty supply stores
  • clothing stores
  • men's clothing stores
  • ladies' clothing stores
  • children's clothing stores
  • print shops
  • dress maker shops
  • shoe maker shops
  • butcher shops
  • bakery shops
  • coffee shops
  • electronic repair shops
  • computer repair shops
  • cell phone shops
  • bridal shops
  • marriage counseling shops
  • dentist offices
  • medical supply stores
  • doctor's offices
  • psychiatric offices
  • pharmacies
  • drug stores
  • liquor stores
  • credit unions
  • banks
  • clothing cleaner shops
  • bars
  • night clubs
  • children arcades
  • 2nd hand stores
  • newborn stores
  • gardening supply stores
  • car supply stores
  • florist shops
  • cigar shops
  • maid services
  • gardening services
  • pool services
  • construction company
  • contractors
  • housing supply stores
  • long distances services
  • cell phone services
  • internet services
  • internet hosting servies
  • web design services
  • home design services
  • laundromat
Some cities have a whopping  65% - 90% Black population in them, and NONE of the businesses just listed are owned by Blacks in those cities.  You could pick 7 of those businesses listed above, setup on one block in the city and there would be no reason why the Black community couldn't buy and support it.  Everyone needs food, gas, convenience.  In a city with a majority Black people in it, there should be no reason why that majority shouldn't own most of the wealth in the city.  But, time and again all of the wealth is sapped out of that majority and goes to other communities.
