N. Tru Bass: U.S. Morality clause should stop Violence--Laws Can't

Magnificent Seven

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

For hundreds of years’ citizens of the United States have allowed Black people in this country to be terrorized.  It came from institutions like the Concerned Citizens Council and the Ku Klux Klan and local police departments to a hushed citizenry.  Many Americans who would never participate in the activity themselves didn’t lift a finger or say a word to quell the wrongs.

That is wrong.

I remember as a young man I enjoyed westerns, you know the ones shot in technicolor of cowboys, brothel’s and gunfights. During that old fashioned programming, virtues were almost always discussed.   For those of you who are not familiar.  A western is a genre of television and film set in the latter part of the 19th century in the American west.

Does the United States Government represent its citizenry?

Elaine Duke the acting head of Homeland Security said, on Thursday, "I am very satisfied. I know it's a hard storm to recover from but the amount of progress that's been made, and I really would appreciate any support that we get. I know it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane." This statement came on the heels of Puerto Rico, the U.S. state suffered for weeks without food, water and electricity. Braving flash floods and the notorious heat associated with post hurricane voids. I ask you does this sound like a person with empathy for the unrequited victims?

Former first lady Michelle Obama in a rare public appearance has lambasted women who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.

While wishing the Trump family success she said during the Q&A session of a speech directed to a group at Inbound, a marketing and sales conference in Boston, MA on Wednesday. Results of the election yielded just 54% of women voted for Mrs Clinton, who lost versus 52% of white women voted for the republican candidate for president. After providing statistical information she said, "Well, to me that just says, you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."

She was clear on her message as she is in the middle of penning a book about her time in the White House and political life. She spoke of the past election in a introspective way while speaking of staying true to her “authentic self.”

The big election in Alabama has sent the wrong man to Washington.  Luther Strange,64, when down in smoke and flames as the Steve Bannon backed Roy Moore, now we know who the pulls the Klan’s coat tails. 

While Mr. Trump is proud to make statements about his followers loving him, the real grand poohbah has shown his hand in Alabama’s Senate race during the primary.  It appears that Stephen Bannon voice is a bit louder than the former reality television performer turned president with both men having a horse I the race for the vacant spot left by Jeff Sessions when he was tapped for the Federal job, US Attorney.  General. 

Bannon is and American media executive, political manipulator and chairman of the Derisive Breitbart News.  He also served a short time in the White House as its Chief Strategist (a made up position).

And they all Fall

And they all Fall

The political climate in the United States of American is at an all-time fevered pitch.   In a post Barack Obama era the political ideology of race is deeper than the skin. 

Over the weekend, the President did his level best to be divisive through attempting to put pressure on team owners to force players to stand for the national anthem and asking the owners to fire players for not taking the stance.   

Kneeling during the anthem became a thing when former Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kapernick, sat during a preseason game to bring attention to a visible rash of American police officers gunning down unarmed African American men, women and children without prosecution.   It seems to be an unopposable position.  But, not in today’s North America.

More than 200 dead, dozens of buildings collapse and millions without power.  A 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook up central Mexico after a warning shot last week off the coast.  People are still being found under ruble as emergency workers continue seek and rescue efforts. 

Many people are still missing and more being reported missing, including 20 school children as their school collapsed.  Devastation and misery abounds as rescue workers worked overnight trying to find the living.

Throughout the city cars stood still as the city reverberated.  Mexico City in on a dry lake bed and suffers more intensely than surrounding area. 

10,000 people died on this day 32 years ago as a 8.0 magnitude devastated the capitol city. 

Brave Mexican residents try and explain their circumstances when the tremors began.

In the early 2000’s, I traveled around the country to some 50+ cities in some 30+ states as a part of the African American History Minute Tour.  During that time, I interviewed many African American Mayors who were recommended to me as men and women who were doing an honorable job.

Author Stephen King had words for one of Trumps latest social media message by encapsulating that it came from a Fu*k up Mind. 

The message came on Sunday when the sitting U.S. president retweeted a moving image of a golf ball hitting Hillary Clinton in the head a knocking her down.  It was a retweet from a user named, “Fuctupmind.”   The horror specialist, took the information as a play on words opportunity. 

Both during and after the 2016 presidential election King has expressed his disapproval of the Johnny-come-lately politician.  He once said of Trump having nuclear codes, “worse than any horror story I ever wrote.”
