CLINTON’S CULTURAL GENOCIDE

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE

October 20, 2016

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Donald Trump courageously debates and exposes Hillary Clinton -the epitome of political corruption, and defender of a World Order that has been rigged for generations. Yet, this same system that most of us dissaprove of has never been defended with as much ferocity as it is today. Why is he being criticized for calling the system for what it is?

Donald Trump first defeated the RIGHT HALF of a degenerated Republican Party that invented the loaded term of “Neoliberalism” which describes a political theory that used the rhetoric of free market economics, and conservatism in order to win elections, but pushed a statist agenda that grew the size of government, the power of lobbyists, the national debt, American interventionism, and corporativism.

Donald Trump held his party responsible for its roll in going along with an unjust and corrupt system that wasn’t any better than the Democrat Party. Mr Trump was able to identify our political and systemic problems in a way that made the American citizen feel heard and understood. Hence, his ability to win the Republican nomination despite the rejection from the entrenched political aristocrats running the RNC. Blue color conservatives and constitutionalists were able to see past his lack of political experience and were able to identify in Mr Trump his innate ability to motivate and lead people towards excellence and success.

Now he is fighting against a robotic candidate that has been preparing for over a half century and that represents a fast growing Orwellian state that dominates our system, our culture, and that looks to also control our lives. 1984 is indeed turning the omnipresence of the state into a reality in 2016.

Donald’s fighting instincts refuses to accept this rigged system that we silently acknowledge but that political correctness demonizes. From our latest Nobel Prize winner in literature -Bob Dylan in the 60’s and 70’s, to the lyrical protests of Public Enemy in the 80’s and 90’s, to the tenacious Rage Against the Machine in the 90’s and early 21st century, young adults have been protesting and voicing their discontent with an American system that is loosing its grip on freedom, justice, and morality.

Politically our nation has always been a contrarian society. From its foundation, to the Civil War, to the Civil Rights movement, to the Anti-War movement, and even the Occupy Wall Street movement, we’ve always fought for what is just. However, anyone who today questions the current system is now ridiculed, labeled as immoral, a malcontent, or even a deplorable individual.

Here you have a real puppet of the global elite that has lied, flip flopped, broken the law, conspired against the people she represents, made deals that favor her contributors or her political ambitions, put generations of minorities in prison, and much more. Nevertheless, the biased media, the vulgar entertainment industry, and a large number of people who have been persuaded into complacency, and utopian promises have the audacity to name call, judge, and demean those of us that have avoided the deception.

Some of us prefer to appreciate the value of a fighting leader of American greatness, and forgive a man that may be filled with flaws but that is comfortable owning his imperfections yet confident enough to put himself in the battlefield for what he believes in. How many of us can look at ourselves in the mirror, accept our shortcomings, and then go out there and fight with all our might for our own American Dream?

16 WAYS THE CLINTONS ENCARCERATED MILLIONS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS AND HISPANICS

October 5, 2016

The Clintons have decimated generations of Black and Hispanic Americans by presiding over the largest and most unjust increment of prison inmates in American history.

The United States has the highest incarceration rate among developed nations at roughly 700 prisoners per 100,000 people, accounting for 25% of the world’s prison population despite only holding 5% of the worlds total population. However, crime rates have been on a decline since the early 1990s therefore making today’s high incarceration levels very concerning.

Additionally, since 2010 the average annual increase in the female jail population is 3.4%, which represents the fastest-growing group within the correctional population.

Why are the Clintons responsible?

  1. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 gave $10 billion to fund new prisons, $6.1 billion for crime prevention and money for 100,000 new police officers.
  2. It enforced corrupt and harsher sentencing in federal prisons and incentivized the creation of “truth-in-sentencing” laws at the state level. These laws require violent offenders to serve a minimum portion of their original sentence by ruling out the possibility of early parole. States that set this minimum at 85% of the sentence were granted funding for new prisons, thus more $ millions for the prison industry.
  3. In 1996, Clinton used inhumane language to defend the “tough-on-crime” policies she backed: “They are not just gangs of kids anymore, they are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators, we can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
  4. The Clintons supported the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity for crack versus powder cocaine, which produced staggering racial injustice in sentencing, while boosting funding for drug-law enforcement.
  5. By 1999, 27 states and the District of Columbia qualified for funding. And 5 years after the bill was passed, 29 states had truth-in-sentencing laws, and 24 had three strikes laws.
  6. Thus, the explosion of the prison system under the Clintons is impossible to dispute. The total prison population rose by 673,000 people under Clinton. The number of prisoners under federal jurisdiction DOUBLED, and grew more than it did under the previous 12-years combined.
  7. There is also very strong evidence that these policies had a small impact on actual crime rates, totally out of proportion to their severity, and that these policies contributed to the immiseration of vast numbers of black (and also white) Americans at the bottom of the economic ladder.
  8. Additionally, federal funding for public housing fell by $17 billion (a 61% reduction), on the other hand federal funding for corrections rose by $19 billion (an 171% increase). The federal government redirected nearly $1 billion in state spending for higher education towards prison construction.
  9. Clinton also put a permanent eligibility ban for welfare or food stamps to anyone convicted of a felony drug offense (including marijuana possession). He prohibited drug felons from public housing. More than any other administration, the Clintons created the current racial undercast in our country. Millions of minority families were unfairly separated, while worsening the fatherless-homes epidemic of our poor communities. 
  10. When Clinton left office in 2001, the United States had the highest rate of incarceration in the world. Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African Americans constituted 80-90% of all drug offenders sent to prison, even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs.
  11. Prison admissions for drug offenses reached a level in 2000 for African Americans more than 26 times the level in 1983. All presidents since 1980 have contributed to mass incarceration, but as Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson recently observed, “President Clinton’s tenure was the worst.”
  12. As unemployment rates sank to historically low levels for white Americans in the 1990s, the jobless rate among black men in their 20s without a college degree rose to its highest level ever. This increase in joblessness was propelled by the skyrocketing incarceration rate. Why is this not common knowledge? Because government statistics like poverty and unemployment rates do not include incarcerated people. As Harvard sociologist Bruce Western explains: “Much of the optimism about declines in racial inequality and the power of the US model of economic growth is misplaced once we account for the invisible poor, behind the walls of America’s prisons and jails.”
  13. When Clinton left office in 2001, the true jobless rate for young, non-college-educated black men (including those behind bars) was 42%. This figure was never reported. Instead, the media claimed that unemployment rates for African Americans had fallen to record lows, neglecting to mention that this miracle was possible only because incarceration rates were at record highs. Young black men weren’t looking for work at high rates during the Clinton era because they were behind bars—out of sight, out of mind, and no longer counted in poverty and unemployment statistics.
  14. The Clinton administration also eliminated Pell grants for prisoners seeking higher education to prepare for their release, and supported laws denying federal financial aid to students with drug convictions.
  15. Perhaps most alarming, Clinton also made it easier for public-housing agencies to deny shelter to anyone with any sort of criminal history (even an arrest without conviction) and championed the “one strike and you’re out” initiative, which meant that families could be evicted from public housing because one member (or a guest) had committed even a minor offense. People released from prison with no money, no job, and nowhere to go could no longer return home to their loved ones living in federally assisted housing without placing the entire family at risk of eviction. Purging “the criminal element” from public housing played well on the evening news, but no provisions were made for people and families as they were forced out on the street.
  16. By the end of Clinton’s presidency, more than half of working-age African-American men in many large urban areas were saddled with criminal records and subject to legalized discrimination in employment, housing, access to education, and basic public benefits—relegated to a permanent second-class status eerily reminiscent of Jim Crow.

 

Words are not enough to reflect the irreparable damage the Clinton’s have caused against generations of minorities, their families, and their communities. The current Clintonesque Prison System has torn apart loved ones, has destroyed people’s futures, rendered people homeless, and has created a real life Dante’s Inferno that moves masses of poor children from an unfair and broken school system into top of the line government sponsored hell prisons.

 

Further ties to the Prison industry: (of course when these records werr made public, the Clinton campaign claimed it would donate such funds to charity).

Clinton has taken hundreds of thousands in bundled contributions from lobbyists who represent the private prison industry. One of Clinton’s top lobbyist bundlers, Robert Sullivan, is registered to work on behalf of Geo Group. Geo Group operates a number of jails, including immigrant detention centers, for profit. Sullivan is also partner at Capitol Counsel and has bundled more than $300,000 for Clinton’s campaign, and at least $345,000 for the Hillary Victory Fund. Numerous other Clinton bundlers also are tied to the private prison industry.

Five Clinton bundlers work for the lobbying and law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. Corrections Corporation of America, the largest private prison company in America, paid Akin Gump $240,000 in lobbying fees last year. The firm also serves as a law firm for the prison giant, representing the company in court.

Akin Gump lobbyist and Clinton bundler Brian Popper disclosed that he previously helped CCA defeat efforts to compel private prisons to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests.

10 RAZONES POR LAS QUE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. FUE REPUBLICANO

September 14, 2016

image

1. Desde su fundación en 1854 como el Partido de oposición a la Esclavitud, hasta hoy en día, el Partido Republicano a liderado la lucha en favor de la Libertad y los Derechos Civiles.

2. El Presidente Republicano Dwight Eisenhower fue quien luchó por pasar el Decreto para los Derechos Civiles de 1957 y quien mandó tropas a Arkansas para desegregar a las escuelas.

3. El Presidente Eisenhower nombró a Earl Warren a la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos, lo cual resultó en la eventual decisión de Brown v. Board of Education de 1954 de terminar con la segregación de las escuelas.

4. Fue Eisenhower quien eventualmente acabó con la segregación en el servicio militar.

5. Fueron los Republicanos quienes lucharon por la liberación de los esclavos, y quienes modificaron la Constitución para otorear a los Afro-Americanos:

LIBERTAD (13ra Enmienda)

CIUDADANIA (14ta Enmienda) y

EL DERECHO AL VOTO (15ta Enmienda)

6. Los Republicanos pasaron las leyes de los Derechos Civiles de 1860 hasta 1866, y el Decreto de 1867 diseñado para establecer un sistema de gobierno justo para los Afro-Americanos que vivían en el Sur y cuya región era predominantemente demócrata y sumamente racista.

7. Los Republicanos fundaron el NAACP.

8. Las leyes de Acción Afirmativa fueron iniciadas por el Presidente Republicano Nixon con la creación del Plan de Philadelphia de 1969 (preducido por el Republicano Afro-Americano Art Fletcher) para establecer las primeras metas y fechas de aplicación de dicha ley. Apesar de que tales leyes ahora son un arma burocrática injusta, la ley fue creada por Nixon para combatir el daño causado por el Presidente Demócrata Woodrow Wilson cuando despidió en 1912 a todo Afro-Americano que trabajaba para el gobierno federal.

9. En 1967, enfadado con el Dr. King por su protesta  en contra de la Guerra de Vietnam, el Presidente Demócrata Johnson se refirió al Dr. King de manera muy derogatoria como “aquel predicador Negro” (“That Nigger Preacher”).

10. El partido de Abraham Lincoln continúa la lucha en defensa de la dignidad humana y la Justicia.

Un Republicano auténtico, cree en un sistema de gobierno que fomente la individualidad, la libertad, y la JUSTICIA. La responsabilidad del gobierno es la de preservar dicha justicia, sus leyes y el orden público, para así poder crear un ambiente justo y fértil para el crecimiento fructífero del individuo y de la sociedad. Líderes autoritarios han aprovechado su poder para expandir al Estado y a su ineficiencia, sus alianzas con corporaciones millonarias, su nepotismo, su propaganda atravez de los medios de comunicación, y su corrupción.

Hoy en día, muchos Republicanos han caído víctimas al poder, al tamaño incontrolable del Estado omnipotente y a sus tentaciones. Sin embargo, el partido Republicano ahora tiene en Donald Trump a un líder que puede devolver el poder al ciudadano americano y hacer respetar la Constitución, la cual garantiza la preservación de nuestros Derechos, de nuestras libertades, y de la oportunidad de hacer cumplir nuestros sueños.
