Jacksonville Cop Beats Handcuffed Drunk Woman While Other Cops Do Nothing

April 30, 2016

Btx3's Blog

Drunk folks do stupid stuff, as any Cop should be well aware of. This Cop’s reaction to an already restrained woman is ridiculous. Indeed the Department should fire all present for letting this go on.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department fired a rookie deputy on Thursday after video was released showing him brutally punching a handcuffed woman he had pinned to a wall, reports JAX4.

In the video, 31-year-old Mayra Martinez can be seen being punched repeatedly by Akinyemi Borisade as she was being booked into Duval County Jail on charges of trespassing and resisting arrest.

According to police, Martinez was taken into custody after she became drunk and belligerent after she quit her job at a local bar on the first day. The police report states that she battled with officers when being placed in the police cruiser.

In surveillance video taken at the jail, Borisade can be seen…

‘A lot of what he believes, we believe’ — KKK Grand Imperial Wizard endorses Trump

In an act of audacious reporting Chris Thomas drove out to the Virginia woods (albeit with an unmarked police car following him) where he met with the Grand Imperial Wizard (GIW) of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). Or, as the Grand Imperial Wizard continually pronounced it, the “Klu Klux Klan.”

During the interview, the GIW said that the Klan was no longer a “racial” group, but now is “political.”

Thomas asked the GIW if he had an opinion as to who should be president. “I think Donald Trump would be best for the job.” he tells Thomas. “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of…

Van Hollen Beats Edwards in Democrat Senate Primary in Maryland

April 27, 2016

Btx3's Blog

The establishment Democrats won out last night in Maryland, where old-line Democrat favorite defeated fiery upstart Donna Edwards in a bruising Primary Race with racial undertones. Not that Von Hollen isn’t a good guy, or a great candidate – it is just his willingness to cave to the Republican Reich with the other Yellowback Donkeys.

Van Hollen wins Maryland Democratic Senate primary

Rep. Chris Van Hollen has won the Democratic primary to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski in Maryland, defeating Rep. Donna Edwards tonight.

Van Hollen had 56 percent to 37 percent for Edwards with 14 percent of precincts reporting, when The Associated Press called the race. (See results here.)

Van Hollen had the support of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and many of Maryland’s prominent elected Democrats, but Edwards’ campaign won strong support from African-American voters and EMILY’s List, which spent millions of dollars on her behalf…

Republican Judge Affirms New Jim Crow Voting

April 27, 2016

Btx3's Blog

The New Jim Crow was just validated in North Carolina by a Republican Bush appointed Judge. Is it any wonder they are so desperate to maintain their 5 Thugs in Robes majority on the Supreme Court?

Why a Judge Ruled North Carolina’s Voter-ID Law Constitutional

Thomas Schroeder said the state’s strict new voting law did not unfairly prevent black voters from casting ballots.

A judge in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, ruled Monday night that the state’s strict new voting law is constitutional, delivering a major win for conservatives who have sought to tighten laws across the country, and dealing a blow to efforts to stop those laws.

Judge Thomas Schroeder’s opinion—included in a massive, 485-page ruling—upheld the full swath of HB 589. Passed by the Republican-dominated General Assembly in 2013, the law changed a slew of North Carolina’s voting rules, including reducing early voting, eliminating same-day registration, banning out-of-precinct voting, and…

Atlanta cop in ‘Robocop mode’ caught on tape breaking man’s leg — over a Walmart tomato

An Atlanta man is suing a local police officer for attacking him over a tomato inside a local Walmart, WSB-TV reported.

“As he’s grabbing me, he’s beating me at the same time, [saying] ‘Get on the ground,’” Tyrone Carnegay said of his encounter with Officer Trevor King. “Beating me at the same time.”

Security footage of the October 2014 encounter shows King approach Carnegay as he is walking out of the store. A manager accused Carnegay of stealing the tomato from the store. King quickly takes his baton out and begins hitting…

Sanders For Peace Tuesday.

April 26, 2016

THE ONENESS of HUMANITY

By Jerry Alatalo

World Map1Alphabet Voters in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island can remember what Senator Bernie Sanders says in the following short video about the hidden costs of war before casting their votes on Tuesday. It might help clarify matters if at the same time they recall then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s jubilant “We came, we saw, he died!” in 2011, after Libyan leader Mohammar Gaddafi was killed.

Residents in the five states, whether aware of it or not, will be voting for war with Clinton and peace with Sanders. The Democratic party primaries held tomorrow in CT, DE, MD, PA and RI will help decide if humanity experiences an Earthly future of war or peace. Libya’s Gaddafi was leading a movement to establish a new currency for the people of the African continent, and, according to recently released Clinton emails, was possibly the main reason for…

Here is Charles Koch, one of the infamous Koch Brothers. Not sure what happened but over the last year the brothers have tried to distance themselves from the very wild-eyed reactionaries they helped create in the Tea Party, and have begun to work at least a bit on Social Justice platforms. Perhaps part of it is that they recognized the Koch name was being dragged through the mud. In this interview, Charles Koch damns not only the two Republican front runners, but leaves the door open to supporting Hillary!

In Baltimore Ex-Felons Rock the Vote

April 24, 2016

Btx3's Blog

Not sure there are enough ex-felons in the City of Baltimore to change the traditional political fault lines, but it at least is a beginning in restoring the rights to a group of folks who may be able to build the foundations of a new life after incarceration.

Tearing another piece of that New Jim Crow down so beloved by Republicans as a means to suppress voters of color.

In Baltimore, ex-felons cherish newfound right to vote

On the November night in 2008 when the nation elected its first black president, wild celebrations broke out in west Baltimore. But when Perry Hopkins jumped up from the steps of the Chinese takeout where he was sitting and tried to join the party, he was quickly put in his place.

“Somebody looked at me and said: You got a record, you can’t vote. You ain’t got nothing to do with this, you…

Donna Edwards, Rogue Democrat

April 23, 2016

Donna’s problem with the Congressional Black Caucus is she is more like Bernie, than Hillary. The CBC, which has sold their souls to the old guard, won’t support one of their own. Donna is refusing to be bought out by the old guard Democrat Party supporting a do-nothing CBC…

She apparently also isn’t real big on being a participant in the CBC Cabaret Circuit of expensive galas put on with taxpayer and donor money.

And that’s a problem.

SC Sheriff Compares NAACP to KKK

SC sheriff compares NAACP to the KKK: ‘The most racist people in America are minorities’

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright speaks to WYFF (screen grab)

Sheriff Chuck Wright of Spartanburg County, South Carolina came under fire this week after he recently argued that minorities were “the most racist people in America” and compared the NAACP to the Ku Klux Klan.

While speaking to the Greenville-Spartanburg Republican Women’s meeting on April 7, Wright asserted that the NAACP was a racist organization because it focused on the civil rights of African-Americans, WYFF reported.

“I think the most racist people in America right now sometimes are minorities, small group minorities,” the sheriff opined, adding that not all minorities were racist.

“I’ve got a chaplain who works for me. He’s an African-American, he is my brother and I love him more than anything. He doesn’t buy…

They only want to honor white men: The pathetic conservative meltdown over the Harriet Tubman $20 bill exposes the right’s petty identity politics

The only reason to be mad about the changes to the money is a belief that only white men should receive tribute

On Wednesday, the Treasury Department unveiled a plan to redesign the $20, $10, and $5 bills to better reflect American history, moving some of the (all white, all male) former presidents around on the bills and making room to put luminaries like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, and Eleanor Roosevelt on various bills. The biggest shift will be Tubman, who helped create and run the Underground Railroad for escaped slaves, gracing the front of the $20 bill, kicking Andrew Jackson to the back.
