Kiss me

You dug your understanding into me in the effort to bridge a gap

waited too long to explain my journey so I took a nap

Let you watch it all happen only no one could see

Slavery and death every day they kill me

What they don’t tell you is I’ve always been free

Fireflies in a jar for the world to see


The only ones who don’t notice are the powers that be

Yet my path doesn’t stifle me

This changes our playing field

From imaginary mine pit to a dream that’s real

Just want you to know how I feel

There are no words

We shall overcome

Let my people go

But where will we go?

Just let us LIVE 

We’re forced to love you

And it’s starting to work

After all these centuries of destruction and hurt

Who i am is difficult to describe with the origins burnt

You think you know based on what you learned?

Lies are what keeps our faces turnt



Yes there’s History but it’s a lie and the mystery is how i made it sooo high

You should care to know all about that but why?

More convenient to to try and sigh with my disregard for the history

I don’t think of it because it angers me

To go forward now feels like I’m starting the fight

Because they forgot no one was right

I got my own lane out of the deal

And i take it when i create something real

It’s all my own so no one can take it

I thank my ancestors for helping to make it

When the time is right they won’t see me coming

But will wonder who that is with all the soulful whimsical humming

I need not quote when few will listen 

fresh words are required that the people can get with

I’ll leave the excavations to the fall out kings 

In the center of this fight I’ve learned some things

I’ll not be lecturing on this war on me

But if you open your eye’s you too will see

The constant threat of enemies

Only engage the direct approach

Change hate to love and squash the roach

But honestly i seldom encounter 

Those types of problems

Yet they still exist

So i still resist

Until the day there is bliss

You put war on my lips, do you still want a kiss?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

since 8/13/1619, I've had time to ponder how i feel and why.... I have many faces and they are all black. You don't really want me to think of who i am and what happened... I have done you this favor... all I've ever asked is that it end and this truce you proposed to accept be real... 

why do i have to die because you're feeling powerful hateful and in charge?

RIP George Floyd

136 GOP Categories Of Vote Fraud Which Stole Presidential, Gubernatorial, Senate, House, State Legislature, Mayor and Judicial Races

latest addition  Oct 2020

Because of these election crimes, the Iraq and Afghan wars were begun. Money has been stolen from the poor and given to the rich by their politician pawns. Our environment would have been better protected by Gore whom the people elected. The party of the rich, the

Republican one, has always been a minority party and therefore has been involved in voter suppression and election thefts.

Gerrymandering, phone line jamming, throwing away nonRepublican voter registrations, murder, throwing away ballots, barring nonRepublicans from vote counting, exclusion of third parties from ballots, exclusion of third parties from debates, police intimidation, phony election instructions, racism, removal from voting rolls, absentee ballot fraud, draconian voter ID rules, voting precincts which fail to open, electronic voting machine fraud, Supreme Court fraud, hacked computer sites, erased flash drives, corrupt polling, ownership of voting machine companies, libelous lies, switching precinct addresses, failure to notify voters of address changes, fraudulent search engine algorithms etc. Supportive links occur at end of article.

Removal of voters from rolls:

1a. Jon Husted GOP Ohio Secy of State removed 2 million nonRepublicans from voter rolls prior to the 2016 election, giving OH to Trump. Some registrations were eliminated because of a missing zip code.

1b. Jeb Bush and K Harris in Florida removed hundreds of thousands of voters from rolls in 2000 and 2004 giving election to G W Bush twice.

1c. Governor Scott Walker, Republican of Wisconsin, removed 300,000 registered voters, a crime which helped in Trump's fraudulent win.

1d The NAACP has sued the Senator Burr-connected GOP establishment in North Carolina for removing blacks from the voting rolls

2. Gerrymandering by Republicans in many states has stolen Democratic vote power. Karl Rove has been 1 architect of this.

3. NH Republicans jammed handicapped Dems' ride request lines. Some were jailed.

4. Nathan Sproul was employed by the Republican presidential campaigns in 2016, 2012, in 2008, by Karl Rove, and by state Republican parties in Virginia, Minnesota, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, MInnesota. In at least 8 states he ran phony voter registration drives

throwing away all nonRepublicans' registrations. Republicans have gone to jail in NH for jamming handicap access pollride phone lines and in Sproul's drive for throwing thousands of ballots in dumpsters in Virginia.

5. In Ohio Kenyon College students were kept waiting til 4 am. In Akron's N Hill, a Democrat city, people left in rain for 1/ hour.

Delaying poll openings or shutting them entirely is a Republican tactic.

6. Around the state of Ohio in 2000 available computer numbers were reduced.

7. Republicans in many states have shut down precincts requiring, e.g., African Americans to drive or bus 2 hours.

8. Republicans in many states have frequently moved precincts.

Republicans have over and over in many states opposed same day registration, automatic registration when getting a driver's license,

expanded voting hours, automatic and universal voter registration etc.

9. In Ohio and elsewhere some voters have not been notified of the move.

10. The Jacksonville Times Union in cooperation with Jeb Bush ran a special newspaper edition in African American areas instructing

voters to vote every page of the ballot. 20,000 black votes were invalidated.

11. Jeff Sessions' Alabama to stop issuing driver’s licenses in counties with 75% black registered voters In many states,

racism: blacks, Latinos barred from the ballot by literacy tests, poll taxes, and in the modern era other ways

12. Military control of nonofficer soldier ballots

13. Diebold's CEO O'Dell, at that time marketer of easily hackable voting machines, at a Republican fundraiser at Ohio's Fairlawn Hilton, said his company would do all it could to insure a GOP victory. He quit but hackable Diebold machines are still in several

Ohio counties and other places.

14. John Thune's thugs physically intimidated Native American voters, wrote down their license numbers, and achieved South Dakota senator status. Jeb Bush sent police to intimidate in predominantly Latino and black districts in 2000. Republicans intimidated black voters of Watts in CA presidential primary 1968

15. Republicans oppose same day registration

16. Republicans oppose universal registration.

17. Republicans oppose automatic registration when at a driver's license bureau.

18. Republicans oppose expansion of voting hours and days and have truncated voter hours in many instances. They have opposed paper


19. 5 Republicans on the US Supreme Court voted to classify money as speech. Money apparently does talk. This opened the way

for the Koch Brothers and others to spend hundreds of billions on Republicans.

20. Mysterious plane crashes in fall senate election campaigns ended the lives of Democrats Jerry Litton in Missouri in 1976, Gov Mel Carnahan of Missouri in 2002, Paul Wellstone of Minnesota in 2002 right after he publicly opposed US wars and in Iowa of Libertarian physician Dr Doug Butzier, whose 5% of the vote would otherwise have defeated Koch Brothers funded Joni Ernst.

After the perhaps murder of Paul Wellstone, former vice president Democrat Walter Mondalel also a peace Democrat, was double digits ahead in the polls, but because of monumental fraud Republican Norm Coleman mysteriously won the senate election.

John F kennedy Jr died in a plane crash. His pilot had been told the day before not to show up. Senator Edward M Kennedy was subjected to attempted murder in a plane crash (after the murder of his 2 brothers). He broke his back but survived though 2 men in his campaign staff died. Another who survived a murder attempt was George Wallace, candidate of the American Independent Party in 1968, whose shooting prevented his third party run and helped Republican Nixon beat Democrat Hubert Humphrey. In 1968 the Nixon-Kissinger-Rockefeller-Hoover conspiracy was involved in the murder of Robert F Kennedy Jr, Martin Luther King (who would have promoted Kennedy's election) and the attempted murder of George Wallace. John Perkins who was once an economic hitman for the government courageously documented the number of leaders of other countries killed in the CIA's arranged plane crashes.*

Ron Brown, US Secretary of Commerce, Democrat, had a bullet in his head when his body was discovered in the crashed plane. see rense link

21. War profiteer network media have often excluded Libertarians, Socialists, Greens etc from debates.

22. In Ohio for a number of years before a successful lawsuit, third party candidates had to achieve 400,000 signatures to be

on the ballot.

23. Through racist fearmongering ads, G W Bush in 1988 stole the election from Michael Dukakis. Bush's campaign manager asked
forgiveness before his death from a brain tumor.

24. The electoral college has installed 5 conservative presidents though their opponents got more votes. These were wJohn Quincy Adams, Rutherford Hayes, Grover Cleveland, George W Bush, and Donald Trump.

25. The 6 states with the most population have 130 million citizens. Those 6 with the least population have 5.5 million citizens. Yet those 6 states, not even 5% of the population of the 6 biggest, have the same number of Senate votes. California with 39,000,000 people has 2 senators, as does Wyoming with 586,000. Wyoning senators have 66.66 times as much power in the Senate per person as California senators. This inequity allows cattlemen in Western states to have much greater power than their numbers.

26. . After 125 years, citizens of the US were finally able to elect directly to the Senate. Yet after 227 years, we citizens may still not vote for the Supreme Court, whose 9 people can overturn the will of 330 to 360 million Americans. People sit on the Supreme Court who were nominated by unelected presidents (e.g. G W Bush).. It is time for direct election of the Supreme Court, and limited terms rather than serving for life. Terms could be 9 or 18 years, with 1 justice elected every 1 or 2 years. The minority Republican Party members of the Supreme Court have allowed plutocracy money to flood the elections in the Citizens United case.

27. In what other alleged democracy do members of the party of the rich own many of the voting machines? Romney's son purchased

a voting machine company in Hamilton County (Cincinnati Ohio). Diebold was owned by Republicans (They've now sold the voting

machines) A Canadian plutocracy company controlled the voting machines in Wisconsin

28. Talk radio in the US is 90% Republican controlled. Romney bought Clear Channel, now IHart Radio. ABC secretly installed Rush

Limbaugh and disguised their role renaming his network. Rupert Murdoch violated FCC rules limiting one owner to 33% of the airwaves. Murdoch went to 39%, an unconstitutional violation of free speech and control of the public's airwaves

29. In what other alleged democracy do the rich warmonger owners of corporate media profiteer from election ads?

30.Ballot box theft

31.Absentee ballot forgeries

32. Unpostmarked absentee ballots (In Ohio the 2 counties (Cuyahoga and Summit) which had the highest percent of unpostmarked ballots delivered are predominantly Democrat). A number of absentee ballots are fraudulently filled out and delivered to the election counters in boxes.

33. Computer hacking by switching yes to no as Diebold machines and Secretary of State in Ohio Republican Husted's operation did on a pot legalization vote in Ohio.

34. NonRepublicans have been barred from vote counting in Warren Ohio in 2000 and elsewhere.

35. Voting the dead (as Nathan Sproul did in Florida and elsewhere for his Republican paymasters McCain, Romney, Rove and others)

36. Hacking the totals (Bev Harris of Black Box Voting showed Al Gore how Diebold machines could be hacked in 3 minutes' time

37. The 5 Republicans on the unelected "Supreme" Court unplugged the 1965 Voting Rights Act enabling once again the racist

election patterns of TX, AL, AR, FL, GA, SC, NC, LA, MS etc.

38. Denial of prisoners' right to vote and under the guise of removing felon names, removing many others.

39. Coupled with Trump, Kobach, Bannon try at datamining all state records to be stored on White House computers and supervised by a member of Pence staff is Jeff Sessions' DOJ ltr implying voters (nonGOP) be purged Rachel Maddow report

40. Lies and libels about candidates as the John Thne campaign did re Tom Daschle in South Dakota and as the Ohio GOP Party did re Democrat Ed Fitzgerald

41. Invasion of privacy as did Republicans with the help of the Miami Herald destroyed Senator Eagleton's candidacy for the vice presidency, revealing he had been hospitalized for depression.

42. Because Bill Clinton did not want to invade Iraq, Republicans and other warmongers sent in spy Monica Lewinsky with the help of Linda Tripp of Delta Force and Lucianne Goldberg of Regnery as coaches for their connived seduction and impeachment plans.

43. Search engine fraud: Google designed fraudulent algorithms countless times. In 2004, they caused 14 negative Kerry sites to pop up for every 1 positive one.

44. After billionaire Sam Fox funded sites attacking John Kerry, he was awarded by Bush with an ambassadorship to Belgium while Philip Anschutz, dovehunting billionaire, helped fellow dovehunter Neil Gorsuch

45. Draconian voter ID requirements penalizing the poor who must in some cases travel hundreds of miles for birth certificates etc

46. The US Senate, an anachronism which gives 64 times as much power to a citizen of Wyoming with 584,000 as a citizen of California with 37,253,000 people.

47. As in defining money as speech and unplugging the Voting Rights Act, the Supreme Court through 5 unelected Republicans ended the

Florida recount in 2000

48. Treason e,g, G H W Bush and James Woolsey as private citizens in March of 1980 negotiated with the Iranian government to continue to hold US hostages until the election. They also used their petroplutocracy contacts to dry up gas and direct the anger toward Carter and through Oliver North sabotaged the hostage rescue helicopters.

49. Allowing the recipients of stolen elections to remain in office, as has happened in the 2015 election for Kentucky governor, both elections of G W Bush, Donald Trump and tens of thousands of other examples.

50. Spamming opposition party websites with pornography or commercial spam

51. Sending those trained in provocateur behavior to disrupt internet forums, public meetings

52. Campaign infiltrators who take charge of fundraising, financial records, media ads etc.

53. Hacking third party sites such as Cleveland Indymedia off of the internet

54. Changing the rules mid campaign, e.g. Democratic voters who showed up in Jeb Bush's election of 2000 were told they needed 2 forms of photo ID

55 Whole counties of votes in New Hampshire were thrown away by Republicans in NH desperate to defeat Ron Paul

"Party leaders at the county and state level have changed or violated party rules, cancelled caucuses, changed vote counts, thrown out entire counties of votes, counted public votes privately, called-in the SWAT team, and inexplicably replaced Paul delegates with Romney delegates to block Ron Paul from winning the nomination." Quote from Jaret Glenn wordpress site

56 Romney operatives erased whole flash drives and destroyed computers of Democrat, Green, Libertarians etc. AT&T computer protection was nil.

57 Phony pollsters Many polls such as Rasmussen, Gallup, are propaganda machines owned by Republicans.... with fraudulent numbers reported, fraudulent samples, biased questions. Gallup reported in 1948 in the week of the election that Truman was 20 points behind Dewey.

58 Unfair time allocations to candidates, e.g. WKSU 'public' radio, controlling 1/4 of Ohio's county NPR stations, gave much more

time to Rob Portman than to Governor Ted Strickland. The Koch brothers spent more than 50 million dollars buying the Ohio Senate race.

59. Candidate lies to the electorate. In Alabama, Richard Shelby ran as a Democrat in order to be elected and then switched to the Republican Party. In Colorado, Democrat Ben Nighthorse Campbell switched to the Republican Party after elected. In 2015 and 2016 Trump portrayed himself as the peace candidate. After his fraudulent installation in the White House in the first few months he spent

nearly a billion dollars bombing Yemen, sending 59 missiles into Syria, largest ever nonnuclear MOAB bomb onto Afghanistan people, animals and trees, and further violence in Iraq.

60. An attempted coup against Franklin Roosevelt in 1933 by the DuPonts and Morgans

61. Elections should be decided by congressional district numbers, and not by winner takes the whole state.

62. Republican Ronald Reagan ended the fairness provision of the FCC which required equal time to candidates. He was the candidate of GE and made them one of the top 10 arms merchants when he tripled military spending.

64. Forged and phony signatures such asNewt Gingrich campaign workers having forged 4000 signatures

65. An Israeli defense firm, Elron Electronics, did the 'official' count of the 2008 Iowa caucus precincts, something which could have been done with a cheap adding machine. (rense dot com)

66. The 3 first presidential primaries have been in conservative New Hampshire, pig butchering Iowa, and South Carolina which in the past has had one of the most racist histories in the nation.

67. In Republican counties in Ohio, the number of Republican registrations exceeded the population, resulting in a lawsuit.

68. Microsoft actively prevented Free/Open Source/transparent software from being used for elections (open source voting was almost single-handedly derailed by Microsoft wrote the website techrights dot org.

69. Campaigns of false news e,g, several Trump operatives churned out stories, one of which was that socialist pacifist Pope Francis had endorsed Donald Trump

70. Ballot design a. Tennessee has had a deceptively designed primary ballot which invites people to check names of delegates in different blocks, and then disqualifies any who have voted for more than 1 block. b. The infamous butterfly ballot in Florida gave many of Gore's votes to Pat Buchanan c. Republicans often put their favorites in place 1, knowing that 10% of voters vote for 1st name on ballot.

71. CNN reported on the eve of the Iowa caucuses in 2016 that Ben Carson had left the state, falsely implying that Carson was dropping out of the presidential race.

72. Super Tuesday comes with SEVEN of the 13 states being Southern racist. They are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

73. Winner take all primaries are inherently undemocratic and have been promoted by GOP parties in Florida, Ohio.

74. Republican owned 'polls' don't include third party candidates in their questioning, for instance Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson who tripled his numbers from 2012 to 2016.

75. Republican Vote Fraud In Arizona Republican Helen Purcell of Arizona denied the franchise to many blacks and Latinos. Some spent a whole work day waiting in line. Many precincts were closed. Voters were told certain sites had run out of ballots etc.

a. Some spent all day long trying to vote see addendum

76. Kris Kobach, Republican election official in Kansas, election crimes. He and Kansas GOP required proof of citizenship.He published a separate voting instruction pamphlet for Latinos which gave them the false impression that they have more days to vote than in actuality. In addition, he eliminated passports as acceptable ID in the Spanish edition.

77. Billionaire operatives pay pornographers to spam political internet discussion groups as a way of driving them off of the internet. They forge phony letters libeling Nigerians by portraying them asking for money.

78. In many states the homeless have been disenfranchised because of lack of address. Jon Husted removed homeless people from Ohio rolls.

79."An appointee of >President George W. Bush, Judge Schroeder argued in a nearly 500-page rulingthat eliminating same-day voter registration, cutting a full week of early voting, barring voters from casting a ballot outside their home precinct, ending straight-ticket voting, and scrapping a program to pre-register high school students who would turn 18 by Election Day does not overly burden voters of color. He also upheld the state’s strict voter ID requirement, which residents argued waspassed with the intention of suppressing African American votes."

80. Election officials changing names and birthdates, e.g. in Mike Pence's Indiana

81. Violent rent a mobs: e.g. Roger Stone, Republican operative, organized thugs into the "Brooks Brothers Riot" in Florida, through intimidation shutting down the recount vote which stole the election from Al Gore. Simultaneously, Republicans organized mobs outside the vice presidential mansion asking Gore to leave. This is the same Roger Stone who worked with fellow violence inciter, Donald Trump.

82. Coupled with Trump, Kobach, Bannon try at datamining all state records to be stored on White House computers and supervised by a member of Pence staff is Jeff Sessions' DOJ ltr implying voters (nonGOP) be purged Rachel Maddow report.

83. Everyone has a right to vote very quickly, to vote before election day, to have many

precincts available, a paper trail, and a voting network free of hackable voting machines.

84. Ohio Republicans in court were forced to testify that antihacking software had been removed by Secretary of State Husted's operati

85. Korean Americans and Asian Americans, often Democrats, have had their votes suppressed by the GOP.. Greg Palast has reported that in the 6th District of Georgia, 6000 Koreans were prevented from voting, told their registrations had not been received. When they produced photocopies of the voting rolls, one was arrested. Karen Handel suppressed the vote when Georgia Secretary of State.

86. Republicans have often eliminated people with the same 1st and last names but different middle names such as Robert A Smith and Robert L Smith, or Stephen A Kim and Stephen M Kim

87. Kris Kobach, GOP Secy of State in Kansas, required birth certificates, published deceptive Spanish instructions designed to make

Latinos think they had more days to vote.

88. Ohio Republicans in court were forced to testify that antihacking software had been removed by Secretary of State Husted's operatives.

89. Trump's commission requests 10 years of every voter's name, address, politial affiliation, social security number, any felonies etc. 45 states are refusing to comply with some or all of the unconstitutional violation of privacy by Trump, Kris Kobach, Sessions, Bannon etc.

90 Libel "One of young Roger Stone’s first dirty tricks for CREEP was sending a campaign check for $200 to liberal Republican congressman (and Wilson Sonsini co-founder) Pete McCloskey on behalf of the Young Socialist Alliance, and then forwarding a copy of the receipt to the publisher of the largest daily newspaper in New Hampshire, the Manchester Union-Leader" Mark Ames writing for the StoneZone

91 Republicans in Pence's Indiana thwarted the registration of 40,000 African Americans
"Patriot Majority USA, a liberal group that runs the Indiana Voter Registration Program, which calls itself the largest voter registration program of African-Americans in the state. It says it submitted some 40,000 registration forms this year — until Republican officials stepped in."

92 Vote fraud by Republican Secretaries of State in Georgia, Ohio
and other Republican vote fraud incidents
Brian Kemp Georgia's Republican
Another Republican SOS, Karen Handel, was sued by the ACLU for voter suppression. She was 'elected' in the 6th congressional district of Georgia recently.
Allen Cty Indiana sheriff is said to have denied right to vote to those in jail
Republican Ken Blackwell, former Ohio SOS,
was involved in voter purging and in addition
'accidentally' released milions of social security numbers. He is with 2 other vote purging criminals, Kris Kobach and Mike Pence,
on Trump's datamining privacy violating commission.



Before Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted in 2016 removed 2 million nonRepublicans from the voting rolls (subject of several
lawsuits while Trump takes the stolen loot of the tree of poisoned fruit) Republican Ken Blackwell, Secretary of State in 2004,
was a key operative in stealing in a variety of ways the 2004 election for G W Bush. He is currently on the 'bipartisan' datamining
privacy invading vote fraud commission of vote fraudster Trump, along with vote fraudsters Mike Pence (in Indiana) and Kris Kobach of Kansas.

That year Diebold, Ohio based, still owned their easily hackable voting machines. The Diebold CEO O'Dell said at the Fairlawn Hilton at a GOP fundraiser that Diebold would do all it could to elect Republicans. The Ohio Republican theft of the national election was the
subject of a congressional committee investigation chaired by Rep. John Conyers who published a book sized documenation of fraud, an extensive article in Rolling Stone by Robert F Kennedy Jr, and a book by Bob Fitrakis.

That year in Ohio John Kerry received huge crowds, including 17,000 people waiting in the cold rain for several hours in predominantly Republican Zanesville. Bush never drew more than 4,000.

On election day, many Democratic precincts had voting machines removed. In Akron's North Hill, voters were kept waiting in the rain outside for 1/2 hour after
the precincts should have opened. At Kenyon College, students were kept waiting
in line til 4 am the next day. In Warren, Ohio, Democratic observers were locked out. In Republican Gahanna county, a Diebold machine recorded over 4000 votes for Bush though only 600 some people voted in the district etc. etc.

Along with Blackwell's criminal theft of the election he
'accidentally' released milions of social security numbers. Was he paid for the datamining windfall?


Reagan, G H Bush, G W Bush twice, Trump.... all had illegitimate elections.
Republicans stole elections from Carter, from Dukakis, from Gore and Hillary Clinton, both of whom won the popular vote, from John Kerry who won Ohio and therefore the election.

Iran Contra involved giving arms both to Iran and to Central Americans fighting against a more socialist government. Reagan was elected because a. G H W Bush and James Woolsey met on March 12, 1980 with Iranians who agreed to keep US POW's in jail until election day, an act of treason. In addition they had created the gas price problem and had sabotaged through Oliver North Carter's rescue attempt.

We are asked to believe that most Republicans voted for Trump despite his attacks on John McCain, considered by those who approved of the war in Vietnam to be a hero.

96. Trump's biased vote fraud commission includes Ken Blackwell who as GOP Ohio Secretary of State coordinated the Ohio theft of the US election from John Kerry in 2004 through a variety of methods, including requiring that voters could not register except on super-thick 80-pound card stock, preventing thousands from signing up. Several books and articles by Representative Conyers, Robert F Kennedy Jr, Fitrakis and others have
focused on the myriad tricks of Blackwell and his operatives.

97 The racist executioner Jeff Sessions who is the attorney general of the US has reversed the DOJ position which was opposing the crime of Ohio vote purging.



98 In Wisconsin, gerrymandering means that 40% of the electorate, the GOP, control 60% of the seats. The GOP
and Scott Walker have truncated the right to have election recounts with new legislation.

GOP Governor Bevin of Kentucky was elected by vote fraud in 2016
The Democrat candidate was double digits ahead in the polls on the eve of the election. In addition,
Democrats won by double digits in nongubernatorial races.

101. Kris Kobach, GOP Secy of State in Kansas, has a history of vote fraud
https://www.brennancenter.org/blog/unco ... ng-history
https://slate.com/news-and-politics/201 ... trial.html
ACLU.org has an article on the 35,000 in Kansas disenfranchised by Kobach's draconian birth certificate and other requirements

Why was George Wallace, the racist governor of Alabama, shot in May of 72. He had a significant voting block and would deflect votes from Nixon
and give them to the Democratic presidential candidate, George McGovern.

103 Earlier it was reported that 95% or more of the nation's radio waves are Republican owned. They often avoid reporting
voting registration deadlines to the public.

Wallace was not killed but confined to a wheelchair by the shooting of Kissinger operative Bremer. Wallace eventually went to a black church
and asked forgiveness for his past racism.

Google continues to give prime search placement to Republican candidates... as it did in 2004 when every request for John Kerry information prompted 15 Google-algorithm-designed negative websites
 In some cases nonGOP links are not listed.

Google was begun at Stanford by the CIA which funded
Sergey Brin and provided over half of the university's bandwidth to him. The CIA made him a billionaire and in return he has done whatever the CIA asked.

Google is the world's biggest censor, hiding or eliminating links to which the public has the right of access.

105 Gravis and Rasmussen 2 of several GOP public relations firms passing themselves off as pollsters... Real Clear Politics
   lists Rasmussen as if it were legitimate.

106 Republican operatives in May 2018 primaries were a.slowing down election site computers and b. interfering with phone calls... as happened in NH when those who jammed Dem handicap access phone lines went to jail

107 Hundreds Of Categories Of Republican Vote Fraud in Most States

108 It is fitting that Oliver North was elected as the new NRA prez. He worked with G H W Bush to sabotage President Jimmy Carter's rescue helicopters
for the Iran hostages after Bush and Woolsey on March 12 1980 met with Iran
officials ..
In Iran's secret agreement with Bush and Woolsey who had each been head of the CIA but were during the meeting 2 private citizens guilty of treason for negotiating with a foreign government, the result was Iran received weapons
and in return held the hostages imprisoned 9 more months until the election. The aim was to portray Carter as incompetent.

109 In at least 1 Ohio county, the Board of Elections sent nonRepublican registrants absentee ballots which when opened showed no ballot.
Many of these people have no transportation because of no vehicle, handicap nature etc. Some of them would not be able to get another mail ballot back in time.

110 Governor Rick Scott, Republican of Wisconsin, had to be sued by former AG Eric Holder 3 times before he was forced to stop delaying in causing a special election which resulted in a Democratic victory.

111. Texas has not had a statewide Democrat elected in 30 years. Democrats, blacks, Latinos are in the majority in the state. Texas gerrymandering, draconian voter requirements, varieties of vote fraud are the reasons.

112. In addition to falsifying algorithms, Google promotes Republican sites and often hides Democratic, Green, Libertarian, Socialist sites. One frequent trick example.. one searches for 2018 Senate races and what comes up first is a 2012, 2010 or 2014 site.  The CIA made Sergey Brin a billionaire, funding his development of Google at Stanford University.

Republicans have made Ohio, Wisconsin, Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida
the most gerrymandered states.

114  On June 6, 2018, 100,000 Los Angeles citizens found their registrations had disappeared from the computer. KABC, KNBC and other war promoting media in addition did very little to inform the public about primary registration deadlines or primary day.

115. Ballot mail delayed

116. Absentee ballots hidden inside junk mail clusters

117. lying ads

118 Printer delays as by Midwest Direct in 2020 .. Democratic counties Summit and Cuyahoga experienced delays of several days to 14 or more.

119 Shortening the deadline for vote counting  attempts by Republicans in 2020 in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio

120 limiting the dropoff boxes for absentee ballots to 1 per county

121 ownership of voting machine companies by Republican candidates

122 ownership of radio and tv networks by Republican candidates who promote their own campaigns and censor the opposition

123 blocking automatic universal registration of every citizen

Rural states with Republicans have much more power in the Senate than the highly populated states of CA, NY, FL, TX, IL, PA etc  178 million in the 10 most populated states have no more power than the 9 million in the 10 least populated. The Declaration of Independence 'all men (and women) are created equal' is denied by the structure of the US Senate.

Addendum: The 2016 Republican received less than 1/4 of eligible voters in the US. Kansas' Secretary of State

Republican and the White House had

 a giant datamining

effort as they sought social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, history of voting, party affiliation and several other

categories of voter data. 45 states have refused to give some or all of what has been requested.


A spokesperson for the group Let America Vote on WBUR stated that this is a prelude to Trump asking for draconian new voter suppression laws. He said one aim of Trump's datamining plan has been achieved... some antiTrump voters not wanting him to have

access to their information have already removed their data from voting rolls.

Kris Kobach, GOP Secretary of State, suppressed nonRepublican voting in Kansas. He was on record saying the federal government

under Obama should stay out of state elections. Now that there is a Republican president he has changed his tune.

The Kentucky Secretary of State said the Trump request violates state privacy laws.

Many states sell voter ID information, also violating privacy.

Republicans have over and over in many states opposed same day registration, automatic registration when getting a driver's license,

expanded voting hours, automatic and universal voter registration etc.

Don McGahn, one architect of Trump theft of the US election From PR Watch "McGahn was ethics lawyer to scandal-ridden Rep. Tom DeLay, played a lead role in transforming the FEC into a toothless watchdog, and has represented the Koch Brothers' Freedom Partners and its PAC, which bankroll a large network of right-wing groups and political campaigns. A prominent Republican campaign finance attorney, McGahn has been a controversial figure for more than a decade, and is notorious for politicizing and crippling enforcement of federal campaign finance laws while serving as a GOP-selected FEC commissioner from 2009-2013. McGahn's embrace of dubious campaign finance and ethics practices as counsel to Rep. Tom Delay and the National Republican Campaign Committee--combined with his disdain for laws enacted by Congress--raise serious concerns about what advice he is providing Trump and his transition team. Trump's recent decisions to meet with investors and to sidestep creating a truly blind trust mix business and politics in ways that present serious conflicts of interest and raise the specter of Trump cashing in on the presidency."

B. ROMNEY In 2012, Romney caused vote fraud with a variety of crimes

a. buying a whole radio network Clear Channel to have it promote his candidacy

b. contracting with Nathan Sproul whose network ran phony registration drives and threw away all nonRepublican registrations in 8 states

c stole primaries from Ron Paul (see one of the books on the subject)

d. harmed Gary Johnson's Libertarian Party candidacy in a variety of ways

Nevertheless In 2012 Romney received

less than 20% of the votes of those eligible.

C. JON HUSTED IN OHIO Federal judge Algenon Marbley in June of 2016 declared Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted's practice of eliminating ballots because of, for instance, a missing zip code, unconstitutional. There have been at least 3 separate actions of Jon Husted which have drawn condemnation from the federal bench in 2012 and 2016. Since taking office Husted has eliminated 2 million from the voting rolls, virtually all Democrats and third party voters. US District Court Judge Michael Watson ruled that Husted's elimination of early voting was unconstitutional.

In 2012 federal judge issues 17 page condemnation of Ohio Republican scofflaw attorney general Jon Husted.

D. ARIZOBA Republican Vote Fraud In Arizona Republican Helen Purcell of Arizona denied the franchise to many blacks and Latinos. Some spent a whole work day waiting in line. Many precincts were closed. Voters were told certain sites had run out of ballots etc.

a. Some spent all day long trying to vote

b. Helen Purcell, Republican election operative, closed many voting sites in Latino and black neighborhoods.

"In Helen Purcell’s mad dash to consolidate polling locations across Maricopa County, she somehow forgot to have polling places open in densely-populated Latino communities on the day of the primary. This is a glaring oversight, given that 40.8 percent of Phoenix’s 1.5 million residents are Latino. Democratic State Senator Martin Quezada told AZCentral.com that the lack of available polling locations for the Latino community was problematic.' quote from usuncut.com

c. Purcell operatives reregistered Democrats as independents, and gave them provisional ballots. In other casees, Democrats found they had no registration at all and were barred from voting.

d. At heavy traffic voting times, voters were evacuated from some sites.

e. The election was called for Hillary Clinton while countless people were waiting in line.

f. Small rooms were provided in some cases in which sites had not been closed.

g. Polling places in Democratic areas 'ran out of ballots'.

"Purcell said she didn’t know how the 60 locations for polling places were selected. “A team” within her office chose the spots.

Purcell conceded that no one in her office took into account whether the polling places would have been approved by the Department of Justice — in other words, whether the placement of the polling places might disenfranchise voters.

Purcell said polling places were large. Yet one pollworker testified that it was smallest room she’d ever worked in during her 20 years working elections.

Purcell said “to her knowledge” no polling places ran out of ballots. This, despite widespread reports that polling places ran out of ballots.

And Purcell blamed a lack of funding for what clearly, undeniably, unavoidably was a total foul up." The above quote is from

E.SUPPRESSION OF BLACK VOTE an almost infinite subject

1. Suppression of the black vote throughout the south,

2 police in Florida in 2000 barring precincts

3. Jacksonville Times Union publishing a special black edition, giving false voting instructions

4. harsh voter ID requirements

5. elimination of precincts and Dept of Motor Vehicles in black neighborhoods in Alabama

6. police at checkpoints at Watts precincts in Los angeles in the 1968 Democratic primary., with

Ohio Republican Secretary of State John Husted is removing 2 million people from the voting rolls as Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris did in Florida, stealing the election from Al Gore.


in 2012, the estimated populationwas 314 million. If one deducts 2% for noncitizens, then 307 million

were eligible to vote. If one deducts 23% for population under 18, then 236.9 million were the Americans

eligible to vote. The total vote for president in 2012 was 127 million votes, with Obama

receiving 51.19%, Romney receiving 47.32%, Libertarians receiving .99% and Greens .36% with other parties

receiving less. Romney's 47.32%is 19.9% of the total number eligibleto vote. Of The numbers, third

parties would be higher but many states block third party voters in a variety of ways, and corporate owned media block third parties from the debate, etc. 8.6% of the US population has a felony convictionbut different states have different rules about voting by

felons (a number which includes Jesus, Gandhi,and others).


Karl Rove was involved in 300 million dollars of PAC money for GOP candidates, including his involvement in a flip the vote scam... computer fraud in 25 Ohio counties. In addition Rove in both the Romney and McCain campaigns paid Nathan Sproul for his phony voter registration drives which in 8 states threw away all nonRepublican registrations.


Democrat Vote Fraud

1. Hillary Clinton staff manipulated 5 primaries' results, 2 million in California alone, and stole the Democratic nomination from

Bernie Sanders through vote fraud in CA, NV, AZ, IA and NY and suffered a quick karmic return as Trump through varieties of

vote fraud stole the election from her.

2. In Maryland with the help of Diebold, Ben Cardin stole NAACP president Kweisi Mfume's primary victory.

The US Has Never Yet Been A True Democracy, With 1 Person, 1 Vote


Trump's fraudulent 2016 win:

a. Several million NonGOP voters purged in GA, OH, TX, NC, NV, IN, etc by Republican attornes general.

b. 22% of America are Catholic. Millions of these voters were falsely told that the pacifist abolitionist socialist celibate protector of Mother Earth had endorsed the

children-bombing, executioner nominating, errand boy of the rich, sexual assaulter and

pawn of the petroplutocracy Donald Trump.

c. ESS Elections Systems & Software admits lies denying giving remote control devices for voting machines to GOP election controllers in 18 states etc

d. The Trump campaign hired Nathan Sproul whose operatives have gone to jail in Florida. In 8 states Sproul conducted phony general voter registration drives, but employees threw away all nonRepublican ballots. Sproul had worked for the McCain and Romney presidential campaigns as well.

e. In Ohio alone, Jon Husted, currently running for lt. governor, criminally removed

over 1 million voters from the rolls, stealing Ohio from the Democrats and giving it to


f. In Georgia, Brian Kemp, nation's biggest purger, removed 1.4 million names since 2012, giving Georgia to Trump

g. In Kansas, Kris Kobach was another racist purger as was the Mike Pence GOP machine in Indiana, etc. etc.





Pennsylvania and North Carolina Republicans have unsuccessfully tried to block the counting after election day of absentee ballots which are postmarked on election day or before. The Supreme Court was split 4 to 4. In Georgia the governor Brian Kemp has continued to suppress minority voting in a variety of ways. The Republican Secretary of State in Ohio has limited drop off boxes to 1 per county ballot, has as a single individual changed the Ohio votecounting law deadline Nov 18 rather than Nov 24 . Midwest Direct, a Cleveland company, has delayed ballots to Democratic Cuyahoga and Summit counties

Minimum Wage and Racism

by Jeph Johnson

On Raising the Minimum Wage 

Unfortunately we could quadramililiothteenith the minimum wage (I made that word up) and billionaire CEOs would continue to up their earning percentage to stay ahead of the game.


Raising the minimum wage also sends a flood over people like me who've worked several years to be a dollar or two above minimum wage (actually it's more like 40 cents). I doubt employers will raise all the wages of those above the current minimum wage but who are below $15/hr. So basically you have an even greater percentage of people at minimum wage and it scares the hell out of me because all the skills I've cultivated over the years have deteriorated or are no longer applicable.


People have gone to school and sacrificed a lot of time and money to get degrees and certificates to make $12-$15/hour and now "anyone who works" is gonna be making the same? Like I said, awesome idea IF we could mandate employers to freeze (or lower) their earnings. We can't--not under our current form of Capitalism.


Also if higher education was tax funded then the issue with going to school to make more money wouldn't be as pressing.


How about lower everyone's wages incrementally in progressive tiers?


Everyone making minimum wage stays where they are. Those making $15/hr take a 1% pay cut. Those making $20/hr take a 2% pay cut and so on.... When we get to the obscene "wealthy one percenters/Corporate CEO types" their wages will be significantly reduced and money fed back into the system. It won't hurt them at all. It might impede some entrepreneurial progress but people emerging from poverty would benefit and prosper and de-monopolize the way things are.

Emerging from the lost incentives for CEOs, millions of happy people would transform our world into a much more liveable place, which in turn will provide new incentives for everyone else.


On Systemic Racism

There is definitely oppression based on skin color in the United States. There are more people with light skin in positions of authority--most notably those positions are due to economic disparity--so naturally more white people will be committing racist actions. And when white people continue to harass people of color this way it incites racial prejudices from them right back at us (I say "us" and "them" for no other reason than because most of my friends are white).


Economic disparity is the real problem. Racism exists on both ends of the color spectrum but more occurs from white people because of three reasons:


1) twisted religious doctrines (thankfully becoming less prevalent)


2) there are a greater percentage of white people in economically powerful positions (no real end in sight for this)


3) there are more white people in the United States than people with darker skin (this is soon to change).


So since power is what corrupts and money is power our society has two options to eradicate racism: White people with money (mostly corporate CEOs) need to CHOOSE to be fair and graciously benevolent with their wealth -or- as a nation we need to eliminate (or tweak substantially) the economic template this country plays (ie: enlist more Socialistic programs) so the "gracious benevolence" can be mandated. Just my two cents (which is one cent more than I'm worth to most multi-billionaires).


In a similar vein, I love the idea of a "national service" draft at the onset of a person's 18th year (or when high school is over for those who graduate). 

Have it involve schooling and working various jobs the country needs done. Eliminate the military for the most part, just make it one option for those drafted who want to serve. Sort if like the Peace Corps, but unlike the military and Peace Corp it doesn't have to be "war and peace" it can (and should) involve all sorts of apprenticeship opportunities and learned skills.

We wouldn't have to pay profit making corporations to get our roads fixed and public buildings built, but in turn those businesses would have ready made qualified people to enter their work force who don't have huge debts to colleges and trade schools.

The Real Victim Mentality

by Jeph Johnson


To be a racist or sexist one must subscribe to elitist ideals regarding a race or gender.


I don't want to do this. I really try not to do this. To me everyone has an equal opportunity regardless of their sex, gender, skin color or ethnicity. I believe this because I believe everyone has unique goals and aspirations in life.

Notice I didn't say "to society everyone has an equal opportunity regardless of sex, gender, skin color or ethnicity."


No, there obviously are societal variables that effect people all different ways, regardless of their gender or ethnicity. Society places a huge emphasis on employment, finances, status and education. So depending on the way a person goes about their life, they will benefit more or less from the different privileges and/or hardships their situations present.


Yeah in the U.S.A. it is quite probable a minority will face more hardships than a non-minority, but that doesn't mean ALL do and will.


Unfortunately many who mislabel others "racist" and "bigots" or "sexist" and "predators", do hold elitist viewpoints. They do see one sex, gender, race or ethnicity as having a distinct and across the board advantage.


They look in the mirror and feel guilt where there really doesn't need to be. They paint themselves guilty: a victim of their own privilege. They then enlist the false panacea of mislabeling others with the same condemnation to attempt to atone for their misdeeds.


Unfortunately when someone mislabels someone sexist or a racist this mislabeling, by its nature, makes light the atrocities of real sexism (rape) and bigotry (ethnic cleansing).


In order to attempt to build back up the seriousness of the crime they have muted, they get so carried away by these causes that they start finding villains and victims where there aren't any. They start mislabeling and falsely accusing. When you mislabel and falsely accuse enough people, it brings the villain and victim tally up to a level that supports the original hypothesis that all the people who fit into their nice little box are racist and sexist.


And we go around in circles once again.

Every day is a

new hill to climb.

My breath is a hurricane

building pressure in my ears

as I trudge up the slope.

That cop’s watching me.

I don’t know his name but

I know his story, same as all the others.

Blue eyes, ruddy face,

skin pale as the clouds,

claims he’s colorblind

but curses my black brothers crushed on the concrete,

dry gray pebbles spilling into their mouths.

I stride toward him to get to my car,

the exhaustion weighing on my face

and probably making me look like

not exactly the most pleasant guy ever.

Well, at least I haven’t

been shot yet.


I hear it paired with the sight

of the cop’s hidden twenty-two.

The bullet races at the speed of thought

it’s too fast too fast too fast

my heart pounds

to catch up with it

sweat trickles down my arms

as I bolt.

The bullet sears fire along my side, I’m

smacking the ground like a train wreck,

eyes going black,

disconnected from the world I wish for

that is just

and fair

and colorblind

and doesn’t pull a gun

on any black kid

walking out of church.

Your Devedlopment is Our Demolition

Your condos are unmarked headstones above the mass graves of old dreams, old lives, and memories of joy and struggle. I saw your remorsless glances at the homeless man you displaced. I passed your expensive coffee shop on the way to work that used to be my favorite bodega. I heard entitlement in your voice when you called 311 to complain about the homeless encapment and soup kitchen. I know you see yourself as more human than those of us with darker shades of skin, different accents, and smaller bank accounts. You act as if you are saintly because you think you made the niegborhood nicer but I see that the road the homeless shelter is paved in your good intentions.

America's Biggest Racist: Gerry Mander





user img

Gerrymandering is the drawing of voter districts in a way which minimizes the political power of the foe. In Florida and Alabama, congressional districts resemble absurdly designed puzzle pieces as minorities are packed into as few districts as possible

It is only because of over a century of racist vote fraud that Republicans are senators in Alabama.  Gerrymandering is egregious in Bama while neglectful has been Obama.

Flying Free

I woke up at 12 this morning -

To the sound of Uruguayan bells ringing,

Harmlessly to the sound of sanity.

That ovulating smell,

Surfaced the room, cruising

Like a careless dream.

Into the crack den, those krooked curses live.

Surfacing like snakes, tormenting us

With their poisoned apples.

“Go on, take a bite,”

“It won’t hurt you.”

Expand your mind, thats what they say.

Learn and expand. Sitting there on their thrones,

Like courted angels, fallen from the depths of heaven,

To play persecutor to us. The free.





           fffffffffff Expand.

fdddddddddddddd Divide.

“Go on, take a bite,”

“It won’t hurt you.”

I used to think racism was racist,

But it’s not. It’s just a word,

Like and, or if, or but,

Or fuck.

They’re all just words really.

Harmless little words.

Ain't I Black by Elliott J. Curry

“Ain’t I Black”


Elliott Justin Curry

Today, I want to challenge the questioning of a fact
My character and ethnic orientation is often under attack
They question the way I carry myself, in particular the way I act
To clarify, folks say the way I act is white…not black.
But when I look in the mirror, my complexion still in tact
I ask the question….”Aint I black”

Blame me because my verbs agree with my nouns
Criticize me because of the education that I have found
Get jealous cause I am destined, and bound
While you are busy hating, you never get off the ground
Yes, I am proud of me and I love the way my voice sounds
Challenge what you want, and make a mountain out of a mound
You can even dance around the fact but….”Aint I Black”

Okay speaking hypothetically
If I look at my brothers pathetically
If I think we need attention medically
I don’t think we get it right educationally
Should I handle that lackadaisically,
If you missed it that means lazily
Some folks are content and say just let it be
But because I demand change, drastically
I can because its my own, and I refuse to go passively
Not lacking melanin, but I still think tactically
Let me phrase it brashly
“Aint I black”

My people need something like a cultural injection
A reminder of what our forefathers endured for our generation’s protection
Because I feel this way, some say I lack affection
Sometimes I’ll chooses a classical selection
Does that mandate my racial direction?
I am not an agent and this requires no detection
Ain’t I black

Both black and white agree that I act like the latter
This used to bother me and it used to matter
Now I just laugh at the foolish chatter
Keep on talking, while my pockets get fatter
Instead of congratulate, my brothers would rather
Question who I am, make assumptions that make me madder
Than a squirrel without nuts to gather
With all of this being stated, nothing else to be debated
Its been mandated….
Aint I black

No I don’t need your affirmative action
I won’t give you a reason to say I got it because of this reaction
No, I worked hard to reach this level of satisfaction
I wont allow you to use simple arithmetic like subtraction
To take away what I have created, me, the main attraction
I create my own, and I am not alone I have a faction
Don’t be surprised because I say this loud with passion
But…”Aint I black”

I have learned that the point of my existence
Is to challenge stereotypical views with persistence
While my own and whites alike may meet me with resistance
I keep one thing in tact
Ain’t I Black

When its all said and done,
When that fat bitch has sung her last song,
It’s just me....
It’s Just me gazing in a pond to see my reflection
I scratch my flaring nostrils to get some satisfaction
I rub my wool like hair, just to check, and I like the reaction
I am never surprised of my glowing chocolate complexion
This alone reiterates the fact
“Aint I Black”

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In today's society, everyone is too quick to judge. However, judging is not the problem, its the products of that judgement that inspired this poem. All too often, I was told "You are the whitest black guy I have ever met", "You act white", "You talk white", "You date white women don't you?", and so on. These statements are the products of a shallow brain. By growing up in North Florida, I was often critisized and stereotyped because of my attitude, grammar, and ambition. In most circles, these attributes would result in positive constructive critisism. However, they were used to make me question my own identity. Because of the stereotypes portrayed of black men, a black man conducting himself in a positive and productive manner is often critisized to be acting white! That enraged me for many reasons. But mainly, these types of statements show disrespect to my mother. You see, when you say that "I act white", you are saying all of the values and morals my mother instilled in me are not of my own. You are saying that I am acting out of my character. Which this is very much so not the case! I can go on and on, but I think the poem states it best.
