‘The Tulsa Race Riot and Three of Its Victims’ by B.C. Franklin; an eyewitness account

The 1931 manuscript, “The Tulsa Race Riot and Three of Its Victims,” by B.C. Franklin was recovered from a storage area in 2015 and donated to the African American History Museum.

On magiamma’s June 11, 2020 Hot Air, she’d featured this testimonial of Kimberly Jones’ ‘How We Can Win’, in which she speaks so scathingly and eloquently of ‘Black Economics in America’, and mentions the burnings of Tulsa and Rosewood.  She blasts: “you broke the contract when we built wealth in Tulsa and you dropped bombs on us!  At the time, I was so blown away…that I hadn’t noticed: 'dropped bombs on us!. 

Your world view....

I detest the way Bolton views the world. But it isn't just Bolton. Neither party really wants to distance themselves from his overarching views. Just details. Hillary/Biden have a Kissinger view that is very controlling/racist view of the world. Trump actually wanted to pull troops out. Not because he cares about the people, but because he doesn't. Democrats don't want troop to leave. They want control.

LA cops murder another kid

This time, Andres Guardado, 18, RIP.

From Jacob Crosse, 22 June 2020, wsws.org, part of a much longer column:

“In Los Angeles, a rally for the recently murdered Andres Guardado exceeded expectations with thousands participating Sunday afternoon. The march began at 1 p.m. with roughly 100 people, but by the time the march reached the front of the Los Angeles County Compton Sheriff’s (LASD) office, which was surrounded by riot police, the crowd had swelled into the thousands.

It has been over 72 hours since police gunned down the 18-year-old Guardado, who was working as a security guard at the Freeway auto body shop located on the 400 block of Redondo Beach Blvd. According to Captain Kent Wegener of the LASD, deputies were “observing Guardado,” who allegedly spotted the deputies looking at him. Upon seeing the police, Guardado supposedly “produced a gun” before running away from the police. Wegener stated that after a short foot-pursuit an as-yet unnamed deputy “fired six shots” into Guardado, killing him. No deputies were injured.

Cuomo: "6,300 nursing home deaths are a political charade

The hubris and arrogance of Cuomo's statement is unbelievable.

MoveOn's panicky message: Don't take Biden's poll lead for granted!

Here's what the panicky Petes at MoveOn said in their email to me, dated five hours ago: don't take the November election for granted, because Trump could still win. (I think I got on their list because I donated to Samelys Lopez' campaign.) Here are their supporting arguments:

The Weekly Watch

Spring into Summer

Here in the northern hemisphere it is short nights and long days for the near term. It's funny to me how our sense of time changes. When the COVID-19 isolation was begun, it seemed like time was dragging, but now in the height of garden season and homestead maintenance, time flies. I can't keep up. The corona virus continues with more conundrums, cases, and deaths. The political kabuki theater continues to entertain and perplex. Racism continues to be endemic in our culture. The war drums continue to beat. And the Fed continues creating currency and transferring it to the wealthiest among us. At the same time the planet continues to rotate, revolve around our star, and travel with our solar system around our galaxy, as the galaxy itself speeds through space.

CIA Incompetence Led to WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 Publications


‘Woefully lax’ security led to WikiLeaks Vault 7 dump’,
June 17, 2020, scmagazine.com (my bolds and italics)

“Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., pressed new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to detail security measures taken to safeguard sensitive intelligence after an internal CIA report said “woefully lax security” at the Center for Cyber Intelligence led to the “largest data loss in CIA history” – the leak of hacking tools to WikiLeaks.
