The worst child abusers get a pass while Adrian Peterson is crucified by media

Adrian Peterson Vikings

Let me first give a disclaimer. I have a 23 year old daughter. When she was I believe six years old, I slapped her on her leg one time because she had lied on something rather substantial. The slap left a slight mark that went away after a few hours. I imagine if my daughter had a lighter complexion it may have been visible longer. That scared me, not because I felt I did anything wrong. It scared me because I am a naturalized citizen living in America. I feared exactly what has happened to Adrian Peterson albeit in a substantially less visible manner. Adrian Peterson does not deserve the crucifixion he is getting Corporal punishment in Panama is as prevalent as it used to be in the United States and many countries. I personally believe corporal punishment has a place in the discipline of very young kids. While they can discern what not to do from a non-harming controlled pain from a parent's slap, a burn on a stove can be fatal, a lie can harm. That said I never slapped my daughter since for … [Read more...]

Obama: I will not commit you or the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq

Obama on ground war against ISIS ISIL

President Obama spoke to our military earlier today with regards to our ISIS / ISIL involvement. He did not miss words though he was specific in leaving options open that must be discussed. President Obama emphatically says he will not commit combat ground forces The president said the following in the snippet above. The full speech can be found here. And this thing I want to emphasize. This is not and will not be America’s fight alone. One thing we have learned over this last decade is, America can make a decisive difference. But I want to be clear. The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and will not have a combat mission. They will support Iraqi forces on the ground as they fight for their own country against these terrorists. As your commander in Chief I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq. After a decade of mass deployment it is more effective to use our unique capabilities in support of partners on the ground so they can … [Read more...]

Code Pink disrupts ISIS/ISIL Senate Armed Services Committee Hearing multiple times

Code Pink Medea Benjamin

Code Pink is doing the job the Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party should be doing. They are not simply acquiescing to the false narrative being pushed by the Military Industrial Complex. They are not going to be silent as America once again is conned into war. Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin disrupts ISIS / ISIL hearing at least three times The drumbeat to war so far is very successful. The media, both the Right and the ‘Left’ are in full puppet mode. They are actually selling war more so than the President. It will take organizations like Code Pink who do not buy into the narrative at face value. Code Pink disrupted the Armed Services Committee hearing at least four times. As Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was about to read his prepared remark, a Code Pink protester stood up wearing a “NO WAR” T-shirt and a poster with the message “There is no military solution.” The protester shouted “No more war. The American public does not want war.” Senator Carl Levin, Chairman of the Armed Service Committee asked … [Read more...]

Corporations want big government / Americans want a government that works for them

corporations big government

There is a myth that Democrats and Republicans have allowed themselves to believe. Here is how they figure it. Since 1992 at any given time between 17% and 23% of Americans said they were Liberals. Between 34% and 43% said they were moderate. Between 36% and 38% said they were conservative. The charlatans looking at those numbers figured that the number of moderate citizens plus the number of conservative citizens are greater than the number of moderate citizens plus liberal citizens. As such they declared America a center Right country. In other words, a country leaning conservative. This construct was necessary to secure the roots of polarization. A huge tree of dysfunction could then be spliced onto those roots. But I digress. One must remember that Americans are the ones who personally decide what liberal, moderate, or conservative mean. The corporate media over the last few decades have been successfully coerced into demonizing the the liberal label. As such, many moderates that would otherwise … [Read more...]

This week’s show   September 15th, 2014 Corporations want big government / Americans want government that works It was just a matter of time. One has to wonder what took so long. There was a time when Republicans would clobber Democrats on social issues, fiscal issues, religious issues. They’ve done it even though America has never really been a centrist Right country. The plutocracy for many years engineered that center Right myth. They did it by fusing a several  groups that were not natural allies. They created the Liberal that was anathema to God, guns, and gay hate. And with that they controlled us all using big government – not big government for Americans but big government for themselves. You can also find previous episodes on YouTube here. Let’s get busy. Give me a call at (713) … [Read more...]

Police detain Black actress for being affectionate with White boyfriend (VIDEO)

Daniele Watts,Brian Lucas,Django-Unchained.

It is important that America’s dirty BIG secret is continuously told. Biased treatment, mistreatment, and profiling against Black and Brown people by both police and a section of the population that simply cannot accept America’s path to equality and real homogeneity, must be exposed for the evil that they are and the pain that they bring. “Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place,” wrote Daniele Watts on her Facebook post. Daniele Watts is an actress who appeared in the movie “Django Unchained.” Daniele Watts wrote that she was standing at a tree speaking to her dad on a cell phone when police arrived. She refused to give police here ID and walked away as she knew she did nothing wrong. Subsequently Daniele Watts was accosted and handcuffed by two different police officers.

Media bias is dangerous but outright bias gets many killed

Media Bias

The media is both a tool and a weapon Lawrence O’Donnell did the piece above that is quite telling. Since the execution of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, many eye witnesses have been telling a fairly consistent story. Michael Brown was in an altercation with Darren Wilson at the window of the police vehicle. A shot was fired. Michael Brown ran away from Darren Wilson. Darren Wilson shot at Michael Brown while he was running away. A bullet seemed to hit Michael Brown as he ran away. Michael Brown turned around with his hands up surrendering. Darren Wilson pumped several more bullets into Michael Brown as Darren Wilson approached Michael brown. Many eyewitness video clips on YouTube and eyewitness interviews similar to the eyewitness in Lawrence O’Donnell’s piece above have basically said the same thing. They have said it to several reporters and anchors at CNN as well. Most of the anchors and reporters at MSNBC have been accurately putting the eyewitness … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live. Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show Common sense please, ISIS / ISIL is more hype than threat September 13th, 2014 Today  we discuss our new war, the ISIS / ISIL war. I think the neocons and the military industrial complex have so far been successful in using the media (both American media and ISIL’s media operation) to dictate American foreign policy. In effect they have convinced Americans to force President Obama into a war footing. They have convinced Americans that 10,000 (now supposedly 30,000) fighters mostly in pickup trucks with attached guns, a large bank account, a few guns, knives, and the propensity to behead for effect are powerful enough to fight the armies in the region let alone the United states. I discuss this in my blog post titled “ Common sense please, ISIS / ISIL is more hype than threat.”   What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also … [Read more...]

President Obama’s Weekly Address: We Will Degrade and Destroy ISIL

President Obama ISIL

WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, the President reiterated his comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group ISIL. His plan brings together a campaign of targeted airstrikes, increased support for Iraqi and Kurdish forces already taking on terrorists, assistance from allies and partners, expanded efforts to train and equip the Syrian opposition, and ongoing humanitarian aid for those displaced by ISIL. The President expressed his immense appreciation for the military men and women who make these efforts possible, and reminded the world that America continues to lead and stand strong against terror. The President on ISIL / ISIS Remarks of President Barack Obama - Weekly Address The White House September 13, 2014 As Commander in Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people.  And I’ve made it clear that those who threaten the United States will find no safe haven.  Thanks to our military and counterterrorism … [Read more...]

Common sense please, ISIS / ISIL is more hype than threat

David Petraeus - Lawrence Wilkerson

America, there is still time to avoid another costly mistake. The lead up to President Obama's ISIS / ISIL speech was a continuous hyperventilation and hype about the capabilities of ISIS / ISIL from a media driven by puppets of the military industrial complex and neocons. ISIS / ISIL Overhyped President Obama for some time was avoiding the ISIS /  ISIL hype. He continued his "Don't do stupid stuff" policy. President Obama disregarded Hillary Clinton's  neocon-lite like critique in her The Atlantic interview. He scolded a reporter for asking Right Wing warmongering questions. Over the last few weeks,  it was evident that the purveyors of hype and misinformation were having an effect on American citizens. The neocons were aided by the graphic beheading of two American journalists that instilled a carnal fear in many Americans. The neocons got that emotional push they needed. The President felt the heat as Americans supported some sort of action. The polls showed overwhelming support for military … [Read more...]
