Dear WPIX, AP, WTAE, Pittsburgh Press: When judges get women killed, how about Identifying them!

Journalism 101:  Who, what, when, where, why, and, if known, how.

So another woman with a restraining order is dead.  This time, the victim was Tierne Ewing. Still, not one reporter is reporting Ewing’s murder could have been twice, easily prevented.

Worse, not one reporter, (initially) identified the judge by name, who was responsible for getting Tierne Ewing,  killed.  My question is:  Why.

Yesterday it was Tierne Ewing.  Today and tomorrow and for all the days after that; it’ll be someone else.  The “reporting” will all be the same.  Faulty.  Weak.   

Faulty and weak for omitting two, key pieces of information.

  1. The identity of the judge; and

  2. That there exists several kinds of GPS which would have saved her life with early warning – and which can’t be cut off.

For those with not much time, one of many new types of Effective GPS, some that can’t be cut off, can be found at Restraining order solutions.  It’s been around for years.  But media seems to want to keep it a big ole secret.

Great.  But still, what’s up with the weak reporting?

You got me there!  I don’t know what is being taught in journalism schools, (or whether these media hires were, “Marketing and Communications”) majors.   But more importantly, I don’t know why the public accepts bad reporting from corporations identifying themselves as News organizations in the first place.

I do know people watch TV and read the news for better information.  We do not want low level information.  The identity of every judge in these types of crimes is significant. 

Identifying the solution, is key.  Yet almost daily, the public watches a scrum of “reporters” fresh from hair and make-up standing in front of crime scene tape, each offering details of the murder; just carefully not mentioning the identity of the Judge who made the murder, possible…or that there’s a solution.

Demand an end to poor journalism practices

I called both WTAE and WPIX and asked about this.  Both assignment editors seemed bored by my question.  Why is that?  Why are reporters deliberately failing to inform the public of the decisions of elected/appointed judges?  Why aren’t Assignment editors demanding key information when not doing so makes zero sense?  

Except sexism-to-misogyny is deeply embedded in American DNA.

By the way, the name of the killer judge is Judge Gary Gillman.  Also, the public should be aware Judge Gary Gillman lists among his skills “Critical listener.”  No really!  You can see Gary Gillman’s Youtube commercial, here. Or click below.

Omitting pertinent information from the voting public is something media has been doing for a long, long time.

Click here -> for a short history of the name of judges being deliberately withheld from the public.  Maybe that’s something Emily’s List could consider making a priority.  God knows,   media isn’t.  Today it’s The Trib TOTAL Media (Not so much!) and WPIX and WTAE Action News  and Bofta Yimam not identifying the judge.  Tomorrow it it will be another  corporation….not identifying the judge somewhere.   And the below screen shots are what you’ll see.

Killer Judge Not identified by Press

Kinda makes me wonder exactly what AP “contributed” the report.

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 12.00.20 PM

Judge Gary Gillman fancies himself to be a critical listener.

Interestingly, Tierne Ewing’s father, had no problem identifying the problem.

“Something’s wrong with the judging system in our country.”

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 1.29.03 PM

I have a six year history of trying to get media to do their job in the area of GPS

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 1.29.12 PM

Sexism.  Misogyny – see another demonstration how women are treated by the police and the Court system.

Consider this clip from Kentucky, featuring a naked, from-the-waist down, woman, and a Public Defender, so shy, that she tip-toed, delicately, around the subject, instead of expressing her outrage by the treatment of her client from the beginning of the hearing.  (Something the Judge Amber Wolf asked the PD herself.)

In closing we need:

Reporters who actually report the basics.

More judges like Judge Amber Wolf

Way, way Better than the above, public defenders.

Muskogee Fail: Protect the public – Get Muskogee Police Department outta there

When cops become criminals

After viewing the body-cam footage of the gum smacking Muskogee Police Officer who pepper-sprayed an 84 year old, Geneva Smith, while a herd of her lackluster criminal cohorts looked on,  (so far, exactly zero media outlets have identified the officers…which is part of the problem)

I think it’s safe to say Merle Haggard would never sing “I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee” again.  See footage, below.  (You might have to click twice.)

MayorBobCoburn

Muskogee Mayor Bob Coburn

That this happened after police egos took over when a kid ran from a traffic stop; signifies an utter failure of leadership by the City of Muskogee, under the leadership of Mayor Bob Coburn, who has not yet fired Muskogee Police Chief, Rex Eskridge.

Skipping to the Solution:

First:  Meet with local citizens to form a police oversight committee.  Make sure the group is composed of members of the community who rotate in every two years.

Second:  Have the group Determine which police officers can stay and lead the community, and which need to go.

Third:  Contract with the County for policing services until it is sorted out.

Fourth:  Get rid of Chief Eskridge.  He must go.

Chief Eskridge states the Mission of the Muskogee Police Department, is:

“The men and women of the Muskogee Police Department are committed to enhance the quality of life and lessen the fears of all citizens.

The mission of the Muskogee Police Department is enhancement of the quality of life of residents and visitors through effective crime reduction, preservation of peace, and responsiveness to social changes in the community, accomplished through a police-community partnership focusing on proactive policing and crime prevention.?

I might add that Chief Eskridge is a part of the State of Oklahoma’s Police Education and  Training.  So clearly, it’s a big, fail; and this is not acceptable. This will not do.

Rex_Eskridge

Muskogee Police Chief Rex Eskridge

Answers for ending racist police attacking Muskogee residents, include.

1.Better screening for in the hiring process and of major importance, is a focus on conflict resolution and negotiations.

Because Muskogee police officers attacking an 84 year old woman represents a complete and utter failure of policing.  Never mind, “public servant.”

The police also failed their community in their capacity as trusted, “public servants.”

Only the egos of people who never should have been hired in the first place, were fed. Again, this was over a traffic stop.

When so-called, trained officers, chased, kicked in a door, tased, pepper-sprayed, and traumatized two people over a traffic stop….something is not merely wrong.  It is completely, out-of-control.

Not a single officer in the mob scene displayed an ounce of maturity, or worse; a capacity to serve the public. Essentially, the victims suffered from an armed, mob attack, home invasion. At two pepper-spraying, stun-gunning members should likewise be criminally charged, and fired. The rest could be charged as accessories after the fact. 

So the public is best served by getting rid of any mayor who allows a Police Chief – and in the case of Muskogee, Rex Eskridge, who is a member of Oklahoma’s police Training Law Law Enforcement Council.

Keep that in mind. Also,  prior reporting on how the police “warrior training” process winds up mass-producing fools who conduct themselves in opposition to every facet of serving the community.  

One wonders in these training seminars, exactly how many hours are devoted to “conflict resolution”  and “Negotiation Tactics.”   This is Muskogee’s main problem.   Check the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Training page to discover there is barely a mention.  Contact the Chiefs to let them know how you feel about that.

Oklahoma FAIL - Police Training - Chief Rex Eskridge

The population of Muskogee is about 40-50,000. No one really believes military war machines are necessary, but checked this, which was approved by Chief Eskridge on Muskogee’s Police Department’s webpage:


The Muskogee Police Department Special Operations Team is an operational support unit for the Muskogee Police Department and any other requesting law enforcement agency (upon approval of the Chief of Police or his designee) with a mission to tactically respond to critical incidents. Critical incidents are defined as follows:

Hostage Situations: The holding of any person(s) against their will by an armed or potentially armed suspect.
Barricade Situations: The standoff created by an armed or potentially armed suspect in any location, whether fortified or not, who is refusing to comply with police demands for surrender. This includes armed suicidal suspects.
Sniper Situations: The firing upon citizens and/or police by an armed suspect, whether stationary or mobile.
Apprehension: The arrest or apprehension of armed or potentially armed suspect(s) where there is the likelihood of armed resistance.
Warrant Service: The service of search or arrest warrants where there is a likelihood of armed or potentially armed suspect(s) and there is the potential of armed resistance.
Personal Protection: The security of special persons, such as VIPs, witnesses, or suspects, based on threat or potential threat to the well being of those persons.
Special Assignments: Any assignment, approved by the Chief of Police or SOT Commander, based upon the level of threat or the need for a special expertise.


Seriously?  A bearcat to serve a warrant?  What was Eskridge thinking?  Not only is this insane, the inevitable result….is, high-octane cops.

I understand Muskogee has trouble getting good recruits.  But that said, the world sees what Muskogee accepted. Prior reports of staffing issues available from the Muskogee Now indicate the situation was under control.

“Interim City Manager Roy Tucker, who met with Eskridge on Wednesday, said a permanent solution to the police department’s staffing situation is something that could take time. There are, however, some short-term fixes being discussed to ensure public safety needs continue to be met.  [Editor:  “Continue to be met” 😐 What are they thinking?]

“That may mean we have to pull back some officers from special assignments to make sure we have sufficient staffing within the department,” Tucker said, citing details with the U.S. Marshal Service and Hilldale Public Schools as examples. “We also may need to pull people from special assignments within the department to ensure we have enough officers on patrol — those are the ones who are responding to calls and directly affect public safety.”

Tucker said it could take a more than a year to recruit and train enough new officers to fill present vacancies and those expected to be vacated during the coming months. He attributed that to the limited number of training slots available to the city and the rigorous demands of the application process for new officers.

“You want to ensure you have a quality person who is going to be carrying a gun and in charge of public safety out there in the streets while they are dealing with the public,” Tucker said. “They go through a rigorous application and background process — a polygraph and a knock-on-the-door-of-their-neighbors background exam — and so you may have people who want to be police officers, but they can’t get past the background check.”

Ok.  So clearly, Muskogee’s background, hiring and most of all, Training tools have not worked out.  But the Bearcat has found other uses.   School supplies for kids.

BearCatforSupplies

Is this cost-effective or are the police lovin’ it too much to send back?

Return the Bearcat – or what ever it is. The City of Muskogee doesn’t need it.

Also, and recently, a federal court ruled two St Louis Police officers had to pay an arrestee about $600,000.00 for the injuries they caused him. Something to think about, City of Muskogee.

In closing – what is with some of Muskogee’s less bright residents?

Consider that some of Muskogee residents, just aren’t that bright. I leave you with:

Dr. Sharon Woolwine, president of the Murrow Board of Trustees, a group composed of Church Lady types who can’t get out of their own way. The Murrow folks purportedly want to help needy Indian children at the Murrow Children’s Home. Well, they say they do. But when the words and the actions don’t fit:  watch the actions.

So far, this so-called Christian group only wants money from the right kind of people.  That would eliminate the Muskogee Atheist Community, led by Matt Wilbourn and his wife Keli; and also; you Atheists can go straight to hell.  To date, Dr. Sharon Woolwine has rejected about 28k from an atheist group trying to foster better relations.  (The number keeps rising.)

My guess?  I think Jesus would smack Dr. Woolwine, not to put too fine a point on it.

After this was reported, Woolwine prissed right up and stated her Christian group is declining the money on “principle.”

“He wants his organization’s name as a donor on our program for our pow wow,” Woolwine said. “That is unacceptable.”

Turns out, Woolwine’s ego, mirrors some members of the Muskogee police, just in a different way.  But the bottom line is this.  Neither about about serving the community.

My hope?  That the good folks of Muskogee stage a Merle Haggard concert, and introduce city leaders to a healthy dose of good, common sense.

Debuting November 9, 2016: Trump TV! A media network all his own

Hollywood signWondering why all media seems to have their collective heads in…

the sand?  

Thank media, and hang on.  It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

First:  Sexism. As in, sexism is embedded in media.  Ask Roger Ailes.   Sexism remains the toned-down, cocktail party phrase for Misogyny.  

Second:   To-the-bone, misogyny is embedded in American DNA, including the systemic denial of rights for women.  This includes the right to police protection.


Sidebar!  Turns out,  women pay taxes for police services, the police refuse to provide.  (The courts are much the same, as Judge Thomas Estes and Judge Aaron Persky recently demonstrated.)


But guess who realized this could be a business opportunity.

Yep.  Noted misogynist Donald Trump, who recognized a great, post-election loss, business opportunity!  Sooooo,

TRUMP MEDIA!  Debuting soon —!

It’s obvious.  Trump has reason to believe no matter what he says, the worst America has to offer, will support him.

This includes older, tired Republicans. Trump knows he’s free to continue being as nasty as possible while keeping the voting public, remarkably clueless about his personal and business backgrounds.

Including, when Trump calls his ardent fans, dumb.  I guess since few background checked Trump’s real beliefs, they are.

Trump - Republicans are dumb

But, I digress.

Trump TV!  The newest Media Channel

Trump began laying the ground-work, last month

Trump can read polls.  He knows he’s not in the dumpster, but a whole, dumpster on fire.  But Trump also knows there is scant journalism, and better; that media has the attention span of a butterfly; so…perfect!  Time to swoop!

In order to paint himself as a noble American, last month, Trump began raging elections are “rigged.”  Trumps fans took up the cry — and media followed, rather than address Trump as the draft dodging, tax cheat with a sketchy medical background, he is.

(Addressing the reality of Trump involves work.  Unfortunately, Media prefers snazzy sets over actual, investigative journalism.)

Thus, Trump was free to begin laying the ground work for a new Trump TV Media, business model, raining all things Trump, 24/7. 

To be fair, Trump kinda had to, given the Trump business model of licensing his name is failing…to the surprise of no one.  Turns out,  women who can afford to stay in some of Trump’s over-priced hotels, don’t want to!

But as there’s plenty of idiots who watch TV, Trump figured Trump TV Media could save him.

Trump Media

Why wouldn’t Trump create Trump Media?

After all media sat for six months watching Trump say anything he wanted, then (bonus!) these same hire-priced “talent” drones, turned to their colleagues, exclaiming,

“I can’t believe he said that!”

but continued to sit…not vetting him…of course Trump realized if he could create a media circus simply by opening his mouth; and profits for networks, he could do it for himself.   After all, even CBS President, Les Moonves said,

“Trump might not be good for America; but he makes great TV!”

So, why wouldn’t he?

The Fairness Doctrine – a relic from the past

Might our do-nothing Congress insist on a return of the Fairness Doctrine, for the sake of sanity, and the Fourth Estate?  Perhaps President Clinton could add that to her “To Do” list.

As Trump watches TV like a real junkie, he likely realized how to get away with piping hot misogyny, for profit.  Consider the historical background.

Exhibit A

First Example: On March 4, 2015, CBS This Morning, using almost women entirely, slyly revealed the depth of misogyny in media. Am betting Trump saw the piece and realized he could pretty much do and say, anything…and, has.

Second Example:  On August August 26, 2016: CBS This Morning did it again, in their sly interview with Joshua Green.  Not mentioned by Joshua Green in the piece?

Steve Bannon‘s DV charge.  Not mentioned by a single CBS, “anchor” in the piece?  Steve Bannon’s DV charge.  See how it works?

What’s it gonna take CBS This Morning, to get to the meat of the matter and practice real journalism?  How about the Fairness Doctrine!

However, it wasn’t until noted reptilian and Donald Trump suck up, Roger Stone, (Full Disclosure: Stone blocked me on Twitter) had a discussion regarding possible genitalia mutiliaton of Huma Abedin, with none other than, frothing-at-the-mouth, Alex Jones, on August 23, 2016,

Roger Stone - Alex Jones

and the rest of lame duck media, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNC — shrugged, that  Trump new his idea was a winner.  

What the hey.

After all, if nothing happened after the American Nazi Party endorsed Trump, the sky’s the limit!

And lets not forget the Klan supports Trump too.  After all, Trump might be able to get the support of every hate-group and American born, home-grown, terrorist-in-the-making!

KKK wizards on TV

Yes, this KKK endorsement from the Rebel Brigade of the Knights of the Klu Klux Klan.

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 11.16.45 AM

Means Trump TV Media will out-Breitbart, Brietbart.  Trump TV Media will make FOX look like child’s play.  Trump TV Media will out-sludge, Drudge.  Trump TV media will feature pretty, vacuous women, who will bring stupid to a new low.

It’ll be wildly popular.

Duck Dynasty Commander may move from A&E to the Trump TV Media Channel.

This began when, “I’ll release my taxes when the audits are over” became, no release…and no MSM comment, while — Hillary released 28 years of taxes….but MSM remains focused on emails. 

So when Trump recognized journalism is scant, and correctly guessed media is in its present state, is ripe for profitable exploitation:  Folks, he’s all over it.

Trump’s latest, post-election plan is right out of the Rupert Murdoch playbook.

Let’s hope the FCC remembers this all began when the Fairness Doctrine was eliminated

Why is ElectionJusticeUSA acting so dodgy?

So Bernie Sanders returned to his “Independent” roots after demanding (and receiving) HUGE concessions from the Democrats. Great!  That’s politics – and Bernie is doing his best to kiss and make-up nicely, too.  Good for him!

Bernie bros?  Not so much.  They remain wigged out.  Hence the covert, so-called, non-partisan, ElectionJusticeUSA.org.  (They aren’t as yet, claiming non-profit status on their website.)

Except for one thing. One important thing. ElectionJusticeUSA is trying very hard, (although failing, completely) to appear Non-partisan.  Another thing.  They are so not, non-partisan.  (Irony Alert:  The first attack on Hillary’s campaign, was from Bernie staffers, hacking into Hillary’s donor base.)

No “whos” for you!

Check out ElectionJusticeUSA’s website.

In the “Who We Are” section, Election Justice USA doesn’t really answer.  Instead of identifying members by names and titles, as is normal; Election Justice USA answers “who” with “Occupations.”  Such as “We are a collection of attorneys, journalists, activists….”  

(Really?  What journalist okayed the basic massacre of “Who, What Where, When, and Why?”)

But make no mistake.  ElectionJusticeUSA is Bernie bro wet dream come true.  They got reports y’all.  Big reports.  They’re waving ’em around.  All fair and detailed and stuff like that.  And what a coincidence; All made by them.

Bless their hearts.

Also, ElectionJusticeUSA  employs all kinds of dodgy moves to prevent the average reader from knowing they are 24/7 Bernie.  See Twitter exchange, below.  

ElectionJusticeUSA - Dodgy behavior

ElectionJusticeUSA – Dodgy behavior

Their social media “engagement” person  got back to me five hours later with a couple of names…and a little name calling.  Perhaps ElectionJusticesUSA had more important things to do.

Oh hey, good guess!

Enter Fundraising!

Wait.  Turns out ElectionJusticesUSA has a couple of, ahem, issues.  From their GoFundME  “Ask a Question” page.

ElectionJusticeUSA

Does this read like “Non-partisan” to you? (Me neither!)

They tried!

I support people trying.  But not so much dodgy behavior in reaching goals.  Rough and tumble behavior in politics – is politics. So adults should learn to deal with it.

Bernie is a pro.  Hillary is a pro.  Both have faults.

No whining!

ElectionJusticeUSA - Blaire Fellows

Looking glum:  Blaire Fellows and Jonathan Clarke – They lost the fight but press on for the masses.

Blaire Fellow, Jonathan Clarke, will go on – but it’s time we recognize the crew at ElectionJusticeUSA is not, non-partisan.  To continue to claim such is just plain, silly.

Also,  poor sports, much?  The dog in their fight has memory problems.  So much Hillary whining when it wasn’t the Russians hacking Hillary’s donor base. It was Bernie bros.   

Y’all forget that part?

Okay, so the lawyers didn’t get their restraining order.  But it’s okay.

ElectionJusticeUSA - RO denied

ElectionJusticeUSA – RO denied

Gonna  ripoff, quote Susan DuQuesnay Bankston’s,  The Good Fight.  If you’re too lazy to click, I took a couple of screen shots.  Because Susan is great, and I’m really nice that way. 🙂

Susan - From the Good Fight2 Susan - From the Good Fight3 Susan - From the Good Fight4

Susan  puts things into place, very nicely.   Politics is rough and tumble. Or as Mitt famously said, “It’s not beanbags.”

Last,

There will always be complainers.

There will always be some people who act like spoiled children when they don’t get their way.  Don’t be that girl.  Put on your big girl pants and move on.  Or, flounce on.

(Southern women are great flouncers, so they should definitely, flounce on.)

And there should be none of the below  – three days after the DNC convention by people who claim to be Democrats in their run for local office.  Ever.

ElectionJusticeUSA - Lost in court

Rena Marrocco – wants to burn Hillary but calls herself a Democrat. Don’t be that girl.

We do have important work to do.  Good God, everyone’s listened to Donald Trump, right?  Everyone knows what’s at stake, right?  

And by the way; if Bernie Sanders, (whose ego is considerable), is fighting for Hillary — it might be a good idea for the sore losers to check their mirror.

No whining; and most of all:  No undercutting Democrats while claiming to be one.

Cheers!

Hillary deserved a worthy opponent – but got Donald Trump, instead.

Hillary as a child

Hillary as a beautiful, innocent child

In the area of “First Things First,”

as a woman who has dreamed of a woman President since I was a child; am conflicted.

I owe Hillary Clinton a huge apology, (along with Chelsea and Bill), for secretly wanting Trump to win the GOP nomination. 

My desire was self-serving.

Hillary in college

Hillary in college

 

I simply wanted to watch, (knowing Hillary’s 30 plus years of experience began in college), made her the most qualified candidate of either party, to mop the floor with the other side.

GOP, however, delivered unto the world, not a candidate; but an abomination, instead.  

Both men on the GOP ticket, have proven themselves to be anti-American in values; with a bonus for Mike Pence for his votes against veterans and widows of veterans!   Trump?  Heck, I know why Trump’s parents sent him to a military academy (where Donnie scored a medal for “Neatness”), they didn’t like him, either.

But I am not happy Hillary never got a real opponent.  She got a misogynist-racist, carnival barker.  Who doesn’t like veterans any more than his Vice-Presidential, pick; and has no plan.  Or attention span.  As a bonus, Trump knows zip about the military.  See here from Matt Lauer’s softball questions.

trump-military-goofs-matt-lauer-is-an-idiot

Veterans aren’t stupid enough to vote for a failed business man (21 bankruptcies) who would put their life in danger.

Trump-hair-wall

You pay your money – you take your chances – (But Trump is a crap-shoot.)

I called it Seven months ago.  

Seven months ago I said:

“This presidential race will boil down to the most qualified candidate in the world; versus:  Misogyny.

Misogyny first:

Walmart

Business Misogyny

racism second.”

Young Hillary - Civil rights

On the Democratic side we have Hillary:   In the trenches for equal rights for 30 years.

On the GOP side:  We have…the Chief Birther.

GOP - Death Certificate

So in that regard, Trump filling a dual roles as top misogynist-racist; is, Perfect!

Also, Trump chose as his, Second-In-Command; Mike Pence. Who did this.

Pence legislating misogyny

Pence legislating misogyny  Plainly speaking, the dude has a problem with women.

But wait – there’s more.  If you think Pence is Veteran friendly, I cordially invite you to rethink that notion.

PenceAgainstVeterans

Mike Pence is heavily anti-veteran – and against widows of veterans.

Hillary, girlfriend; – you’ve got your work cut out for you.  Especially since neither party will discuss the obvious….and Matt Lauer made the hashtag, #LaueringTheBar trend after his disastrous “interview.”

But some women aren’t helpful. I live in San Diego.  Our Democratic Party leader refuses to make the solution for safety of women a platform.  Her name is Francine Busby.  

But mostly, Hillary.  The problem with criminal cops. The secondary problem is the therapists like Dr. Michael Mantrell, who okay these weirdos as “fit for duty.

Black eyes matter.  Lone wolf attackers often start with attacks on their wives or girlfriends.  Women are the canary in the coal mine. This includes police officers attacking family members.  Or committing on-duty rapes.

Just today  – Retired NY Police Lt. Vincent Curulli – 

Bad Cop Vincent Curulli - multiple DV arrests

Bad Cop Vincent Curulli – multiple DV arrests

Quick aside:  Dear Hillary, I found one solution to Domestic Violence.  I discovered that judge could order, live-saving, Effective Restraining orders. (It’s a high-tech solution).  Sadly, six years later, I found that not one judge cares about women enough, to use it.  If you know of any judges willing to help you help women live, have someone call me.  Thanks!

But still:  I really hadn’t figured on the guy who openly said he’d probably date his daughter, would be quite the total nut job he turned out to be.  (However I am glad people are beginning to comment on Trump’s obvious mental health issues.)  In fairness, at the time, I was unaware the Republican Party had devolved into total anti-American, stupidity. 

Although; there were clues.

GOP-24 billion

But, I digress.


Back to Misogyny!

Hillary will have to contend with vast quantities of misogyny in media.  And I don’t mean “FOX” this time.  Misogyny especially by women. Click —>  CBS demonstrated a prime example of misogyny regarding online harassment to read one very alarming attack, by women on a father attempting to protect his daughter from targeted harassment.


Selfishly, I wanted Hillary to beat a GOP nominee who was strong and fair; who at the very least, knew foreign policy.

But GOP gave us a man who is not only so globally clueless as to qualify as the village idiot, but as a bonus:  who could also be diagnosed as certifiable.  

The strange part was GOP did so, with no apologies. I really wanted a worthy opponent.  One who has done the kind of work Hillary has.  Like this.

 

(A stranger part is Trump insists he loves Veterans.  Nah.  Trump petitioned to have homeless Veterans removed from an area near Trump Plaza.)

Also, heads up media. Given Trump only answers to the voices in his head – consider,

Will Trump debate?  It’s not a given.

  1. Hillary has released about 30 years of taxes; and  

2.  Trump refuses to release any taxes. (Media remains largely asleep at the wheel.)

3.  although Debates are scheduled – since Trump refuses to prove he’s as rich as he claims, why would Trump debate?  Especially when his habit is to jettison reporters from his “private” rallies.

Another thing: As an aside, The Republican Party is so patently cowardly, not one member called Trump out when he asked Putin to interfere in our election.  Until, Day Two.

Trump-Putin-PenceConsider this:   Trump’s own son is quoted in a Washington Post article:

Donald Trump Jr. — who is also an executive with Trump’s business — makes clear how the company in 2008 sought business from wealthy Russians.In terms of high-end product influx into the U.S., Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” he said at a conference that year, according to news reports. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

The jig is up.

Trump is not a good businessman.  Here’s 21 Chapter 11’s media didn’t find.

Trump 21 Chapter11s

 

GOP is 24/7 Anti-American Tea Party with seemingly, boundless energy for hate towards women, especially black women, and most immigrant Americans.

But misogynist racists love Trump.  And America has a few of them.  So, Trump has the misogynist-racist vote, down.  For sure.

Thus the job for Democrats, is:  Early voting.  Because you know the Republicans will try to suppress the vote.  Or distributing flyers saying to be sure and vote — the day after the election.  Especially in the South.

Fool ’em.  Vote early!

Best for last

I’m sorry you didn’t have a worthy opponent, Hillary.  But I thank you for all you’ve done.  And I want to help you end the problem of women getting killed after filing for divorce or a change of custody. The issue of violating restraining orders could be over with the cost-effective use of high-technology.  However, the issue of judges not caring enough about women and keeping them at risk, remains.

Helping change this dynamic could be your legacy.  Please let me know if you’re interested.

In conclusion:  a reality check:  If you’re voting for Trump:  See below.

Racist-bigot votes

AreYouARacistBigot

If you learned anything new, please help support independent journalism.  Details of past, successful efforts to implement change, are here.

Will the Secret Service get Hillary killed? Veteran Trump “advisor” Al Baldasaro NOT arrested for treason.

SecretServiceBadgeReal Talk:  While Trump promises a “LAW and ORDER” mandate — the reality is, Trump has been promoting violence since the beginning of his crazy, reality-show type, campaign.

For sport.  

Not that the Secret Service seems to mind.  I reported rcdrurysa to Twitter in July, 2016.  Response?

                                                                 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Directed a tweet to my to the Secret Service on, August 11, 2016.

Hillary - Secret Service Request August 11, 2016

Fourth Estate not demanding appropriate governmental response. Media ignores Trump’s refusal to provide tax records.  Media focused remains Hillary’s private emails, because; L-A-Z-Y? Bring back Fairness Doctrine!

Trump is jonesing for a hit on Hillary.  Proving himself the great Pooh-bah of the lunatic fringe, on September 16, Trump invited the Secret Service to disarm themselves around Hillary.  

That Trump doesn’t sound Presidential to anyone, is not the point.  Briefly, he’s insane.

Trump’s earlier attack on Hillary referenced the Supreme Court (for which Republicans refuse to hold hearings.)  Trump assassination talk was in a sly reference of how to stop  Hillary from appointing candidates for the Supreme Court and there being nothing anyone can do about it, adding “although maybe the Second Amendment people before his thought trailed off.  However, the implication was there – as evidenced by the shocked look on the face of the man in the red shirt on the right, demonstrated.

Similar to a JFK Treason Poster below.  (Complete with how not to spell, “marriage.”)

After Reagan killed the Fairness Doctrine; the FOX based “Lunatic Fringe” went mainstream.

The results could be deadly for Hillary Clinton.  Much like Trump’s insane candidacy, media appeared not to notice until Trump’s dog-whistle assassination, mention.

Therefore, on July 21, 2016, was the first to go on record with my fear of the real possibility that the Secret Service could get Hillary Clinton killed. Their ineptness appears to be building a separate, legend.

Sound far-fetched?

Well, consider the run-up.    

This Tweet from Riverside County GOP

RIverside County GOP Promoted ViolenceStory here. Riverside County GOP Chairman Scott Mann said: “I was made aware of derogatory Tweet this afternoon toward Secretary Clinton when the Press-Enterprise called me for comment. I was horrified and had the Tweet taken down immediately. While some may think it was political satire, it clearly has no place in American political dialogue.
“As Chairman of the Republican Party of Riverside County, I apologize to everyone and anyone who was offended by it. I have taken steps to ensure that the individual who posted the Tweet no longer has access and I can assure you the person responsible will be held accountable.”

The Secret Service?  

The Secret Service said they were aware of it.  Nifty.  The Secret Service response bears a resemblance to police statements made after a terrorist blows up people and buildings. I can’t be the only one who notices police response is generally,

“We were aware of XYZ; and had them on our radar.”

Other threats – Other Secret Service shrugs

Licking County Commissioner Duane Flowers

Ohio’s Licking County Commission Duane Flowers later apologized.

No word the Secret Service is investigating an OHIO case.

That would be Licking County Commissioner Duane Flowers, who said “Hillary Clinton should be hanging from a tree

proving yet again that openly wishing death on a Presidential candidate, is indicative of misogyny in the extreme.

Although Flowers later apologized; the facts are simple.

An elected official who feels entirely comfortable openly wishing death on Hillary Clinton – America’s first female Presidential candidate, signals  how deeply misogyny is embedded in American DNA.

And it’s downright scary. Need a few more police misogyny clues?  No problem!  Happy to help! Click here.

Trump supporters being extremely vocal in their belief executing Hillary is “in the Constitution” – direct from a report in Mother Jones.  Including,

She’s extremely corrupt, she’s extremely dangerous,” said Rhonda Welsch, a 55-year-old food and beverage worker at a Hawaii resort. “I think that’s what she deserves: the death penalty.”

Secret Service response? Crickets.  (Again.)  Clearly there are no more Clint Hill’s.

Next we have an elected New Hampshire official stating Hillary Clinton should be put before a firing squad.  (I am not making this up.)

New Hampshire Unhinged Legislator Al Baldasaro

New Hampshire’s Unhinged Legislator: Al Baldasaro

But it’s New Hampshire so, consider the source.

New Hampshire is known for their in unhinged, misogynistic rants.  That said, traitorous rantings from a former Marine cannot be ignored.  Still, New Hampshire legislator Al Baldasaro home to the slogan,  “Live free or Die” is the same state that brought us the longest serving New Hampshire alderman, Crow Dickinson.  Crow liked to crow and famously said, “Domestic Violence is a gimmick.”  Crow believed women should not have equal protection under the Constitution to be safe.  Specifically, Crow said,

“I don’t think taxpayers should be responsible for funding a program that takes in abused women,” Dickinson said. “The church should, the neighbors should, and anybody who’s interested should. But not taxpayers. “
Dickinson said, “Clearly, there’s a need” for such a program. But he also said Starting Point is a “new program” that “needs to demonstrate they can do whatever they’re doing and be successful and show a big need. “
Starting Point has been in existence since 1981.
”There are a lot of women who use (domestic violence) as a gimmick in divorce proceedings,” Dickinson said. “All they have to do is call the police and get the person thrown out. If I call the police and say you’re abusing me, they’d have to believe me. I wish people would split up and be more polite about it. “
Although Dickinson said he had “absolutely no question” that there are legitimate cases of domestic violence, he added, “Just because you have a worthy cause doesn’t mean we should put money in a tin cup. Some people are very convincing. It’s not an easy thing to say no. “
Instead of taxpayers being asked to give the organization money, Dickinson said, “A lot of people could make contributions to this effort.”

(When I called Crow on his anti-American rhetoric against women, he hung up on me.)

So that’s New Hampshire’s background for which blowhard Al Baldasaro’s firing-squad rhetoric, below, came.


“I’m a veteran that went to Desert Shield, Desert Storm. I’m also a father who sent a son to war, to Iraq, as a Marine Corps helicopter avionics technician. Hillary Clinton to me is the Jane Fonda of the Vietnam,” Baldasaro said. “She is a disgrace for the lies that she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there in Benghazi. She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting back up security. Something’s wrong there.”

“This whole thing disgusts me, Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason,” Baldasaro added.

Why Baldasaro wasn’t escorted out by the Secret Service thirty seconds after those remarks, is:  America’s first clue the Secret Service is not on the job.

Of course Baldasaro, like the rest of GOP, ignores that Bush and Colin Powell both deleted emails. But as Republican Crow Dickinson and crazy blowhard Al Baldasaro proved: in a GOP world, men enjoy one standard; women quite another.  

So it’s not the emails.  Emails are merely a convenient cover for misogyny. If it wasn’t emails, it would be something else.  Tonight we’ll likely hear more angry attacks on Hillary Clinton from the reality-star entertainer-GOP nominee.  Media loves this, for ratings. Ratings equal ad dollars.  Misogyny for profit!

What’s worrisome, is, under Joe Clancy, the Secret Service seems to be comatose when Baldasaro, a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention of 2016, made his unprecedented “Firing squad” remark.

That Baldasaro is a dangerous fool cannot be denied.  But is he also, unhinged?

The point is the lack of security for Hillary Clinton.  The Secret Service is well aware Trump gatherings since the beginning, were designed by Trump to promote violent assaults.  Trump is so clueless he actually thinks anything that make good TV, trumps all.  Trump’s an entertainer.  A voting member of the Screen Actors Guild.  He is a television personality — running for president; and creating a dangerous real-life horror show along the way.

Scary is Joe Clancy allowing the Secret Service to become bit players in Trump’a reality show, charade.  Our Secret Service has done nothing to tamp down Trump’s real-life, violent rhetoric.  Why?

It’s mot as if women everywhere don’t know that Any threat unaddressed is a threat that is made with tacit approval.  So the question must be asked:  What service is the Secret Service providing for Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton?  Right now it seems to be a secret.

How the Secret Service should have handled Baldasaro

The correct Secret Service response would have been, immediate.

The correct Secret Service response would have been to quickly and quietly surround Baldarosa, then walking him off the stage, out of the area (to an undisclosed area) — followed shortly after with a press conference announcing Baldarosa was being held during their investigation, and that part of the investigation included testing.  

The Secret Service response to specific questions referencing mental health testing of Baldarosa, would be a terse, “No comment” – leaving reporters to their sources.  Ending the press conference, the Secret Service spokesperson would mention Baldarosa was placed on a “No Fly” list until further notice.

In other words, the appropriate Secret Service response would be a heads up – the Secret Service will not tolerate any talk of treason, period.

That didn’t happen.  Nothing of the sort, happened.  By the day’s end the Secret Service merely said they were “investigating.”  Very tame.

What happened to the “rapid response” the Secret Service used to be famous for?

Silly rabbit.  Quick action is for men.

This is why all women —but especially Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, should worry.    And that’s separate from Donald Trump slyly inviting her murder.

Does anyone not know the climate of violence against women is amping up?

With a fist-pump from the GOP nominee, Americans feel quite comfortable stating their violent wishes.  We have become, thanks to Trump, an increasingly violent county…and an especially misogynistic one.  Including our police.  Consider this:  All by themselves; in a listing of  all government occupations:  Our police earned the highest rate of domestic violence attacks against their family members.

 And they’re guarding Hillary Clinton.  Still feeling comfortable?

(Yes, thanks.  I do remember the Secret Service busily arranging for private hook-ups when they were supposed to be doing protecting our President in South America.) 

What else?

Media.  Given the Secret Service’s dim view of women to begin with — and separate from the firing-squad rhetoric; add media interviewing as the worst optic of all:

Former Governor, Haley Barbour, interviewed by Chuck Todd, as a “distinguished” Republican.

Tellingly, Chuck Todd never once referenced Barbour’s misogynistic past support of wife killers.

GovHaleyBarbour

Haley Barbour – frees wife killers.

Haley Barbour released Michael David Graham, sentenced to life after Michael blew away Adrienne Klasky, his ex-wife, after Adrienne made the mistake of driving to the same intersection as Michael, three years after their divorce.  Graham blew her away at the light with his handy shot-gun and a blast to her head.

Graham was tried, convicted, sentenced to life in prison, and wound up working in the Governor’s mansion after becoming a “trustee.” But Haley Barbour liked the killer.  So being a good ole boy, Haley Barbour decided a life sentence was too much for his pal.  So Graham and 8 other killers were freed by Law and Order Haley Barbour and now are free walking men.

Law and Order?  Where?

Consider Tucson Police Department officer Brandon Tatum, who sucker punched a protestor who was being escorted out of the stadium.  Tatum was arrested but the Pima County DA “declined to prosecute Tatum for his unprovoked attack.  Tatum promptly changed his Facebook page to look less, “para-military” to flat-out, “military.”

Sucker punching Tucson Police officer Brandon Tatum

all while (I’m not making this up) preaching Love as the solution.  Tatum’s right.   Just on the wrong team.  Pima County DA, Barbara LaWall, provided the cop standard, get-out-of-jail-free, card; when she “declined to prosecute” Tatum for his assault.

Sucker punching Tucson Cop, Brandon Tatum says to LOVE

Sucker punching Tucson cop, Brandon Tatum, now claims we all need LOVE to make America great.

Law and Order: Where?

Have a gander at these police officers!  Cops attacking women, including their wives, both on and off duty.  

In Congress?  Misogyny wins.  Has won for hundreds of years.  Who believes Hillary Clinton is safe with this kind of record?

Secret Service

When might the Secret Service begin doing their job?  Here, let me help.  Here’s the Code Section.  18 U.S.C. § 879 

The Secret Service under Joe Clancy – a West Point graduate, is not unaware.  However, Secret Serice inaction signals a huge problem for Hillary Clinton’s safety.  

House Judiciary Committee hearing on "Oversight of the United States Secret Service." with acting Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy.

House Judiciary Committee hearing on “Oversight of the United States Secret Service.” with acting Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy.

Joe Clancy’s testimony for a bigger budget for 2017, is geared to Defense.  Not Pro-active.  Also, as has been demonstrated, their “protection training” clearly, isn’t cutting it.

 “I am also pleased to report that the establishment of a standalone Office of Training (Training) is producing big results for the agency. Beyond the basic training necessary to support our expanded hiring activities, Training has increased its offerings for our existing workforce. In the past year alone, nearly 800 Uniformed Division officers have attended Emergency Action and Building Defense training, while another 650 officers attended mission in-service training. Training also conducted 30 candidate protection training sessions at the JJRTC and in the field for a total of 943 special agents. Another 11 detail training courses for 221 special agents were completed, all while maintaining an extremely demanding operational tempo.”

Buzzfeed News reported Baladasro stands by his comments,  much like Trump’s German butler.  The Secret Service sees a pattern building – but chooses, steadfastly, to ignore it.

As the Secret Service is not only not women friendly, (except for working girls) the question must be asked:  Is the Secret Service putting Clinton at risk?  I think it is.

By now most Americans realize the Republican Party is almost wholly, misogynistic. The Republican Convention for 2016, is nothing short of a misogyny rally. Threats are now made often, openly, on prime time, and; largely ignored. To be blunt, Hillary Clinton is not safe.  

If our Secret Service personnel continue to allow GOP’s misogyny rally, headed by Trump to unfold, we need new agents and a new director; stat.

Would Sean Smith be proud of his mother, Patricia Smith?

Sean Smith- work

Sean Smith signed up with the Air Force right after high school.

SeanSmith-Dad

Sean Smith: Dad to Samantha and Nathan

I felt sorry for Patricia Smith last night.

Right up until the beginning of the middle, of Smith’s over-the-top, harangue.

It happened when Smith said something that made her Hillary-centric vitriol, suddenly fall into place.

As Smith rolled through her long, hateful list of of all things Clinton, including her wish Hillary be in prison, I felt badly for Hillary Clinton — knowing she would not respond given Patricia Smith remains out-of-her-mind with grief.  A grief that’s long since morphed into the kind of venomous, soul-killing, hatred, that was ripe for Trump to easily take advantage.

(I would say “Shame on Trump” except; waste of time.  As Trump’s 3,500 lawsuits and five deferments exhibit.) 

But then Smith accidentally revealed something that tipped me her hate is likely the direct result of something else, entirely.

Reporters missed it; but came to light when, as Patricia Smith, warming up her now, long-practiced vitriol said;

“The State Department only releases information to Immediate family members.”


The problem is Patricia Smith still sees herself as an “immediate family” member.


That’s when I knew the real problem wasn’t Hillary Clinton.  It wasn’t Hillary Clinton at all.

Patricia Smith’s issue is the State Department recognizing Heather; Sean’s Smith’s widow, her daughter-in-law and mother to her two grandchildren, as the “immediate family member,” go-to for everything involving Smith’s only child, Sean.

Yes, it’s the classic, Mother and daughter-in-law conflict after an untimely, death.

Sean Smith was an only child.  His wife, Heather, who has been in touch with the State Department, has, not surprisingly, an entirely opposite view of the situation. Heather released a statement saying she was happy with the State Department.

“First, let me thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love my family has received in the wake of this tragedy. As the country mourns the death of four great patriots, my family is grieving for a husband and father lost. The amazing tributes to him have given the entire world a glimpse of the man we loved and we are thankful for every kind word,” she said.

“During this time, the official and unofficial support and communications I have experienced with the Department of State and FBI have been free flowing, and I have been satisfied with the level of information I have received. I have no doubt that I will also be made aware of any new facts as they are uncovered throughout the investigations.”

“Sean was a wonderful man. He supported the mission of diplomacy and served his country with pride and optimism,” said Smith. “We miss him every day.”

Sean Smith had been married for a long time.  He was pretty well known for operating in the shadows, always eschewing the limelight, as he achieved his goals – via work and gaming.

Also, Sean Smith was a Dad.  Father to two kids; one each flavor.  He had a life.  But in an interview with San Diego’s NBC News, Patricia Smith showed her preferred side, as the report mentioned

“Smith said she wants to honor her son’s memory in another way.
She’s considering selling her home to help raise money to send her sons ashes into space.”

So the question must be asked:

Why would Patricia Smith feel she had ownership of her long-married, son’s ashes? What if Sean’s widow and his children didn’t want Sean’s ashes shot into space?

Patricia-smith

Patricia Smith wants to send her son’s ashes to space

Then another thought popped into my head.

Patricia Smith-Mitchell

Patricia Smith – spewing hate

Most remember the hit TV show, “Everyone loves Raymond

One of the reasons Everyone Loves Raymond was so popular was not everyone loved Raymond’s Mother on the show; the pushy, the demanding, Marie Barone.

Marie Barone

Is Patricia Smith a Marie Barone?

“He’s my only child, but he turned out to be a perfect kid” Patricia said at the time of one of her first interviews.

Then, as the State Department turned to Heather, Smith’s rhetoric became heated.  FOX loved it.  In San Diego, where Smith resides – she became a sought after guest of the likes of the likes of Sean Hannity.  Newspaper articles quoted her as being stonewalled by the State Department with headlines like the false narrative, “Patricia Smith Fights for Answers.”

“I wasn’t looking for my 15 minutes of fame. I’m not a political person at all — I’m just angry,” Smith said, adding that she has no party affiliation.

Her anger centers on insufficient security at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya where the assault occurred last year, along with the administration’s massaging of talking points that downplay the nature of the terrorist incident. That wrath was evident in a comment she made during a Mother’s Day appearance on the “Huckabee” show on Fox News.

Patricia Smith

“I interrupted (Mike Huckabee) to wish Hillary a happy Mother’s Day,” Smith said of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who held the post when her son died from smoke inhalation as dozens of al Qaida-linked militants overran the compound. “She’s got her child. I don’t have mine, and I blame her because it was her department.”

Smith’s persistent search for accountability has endeared her to conservative commentators who view the Benghazi incident as a scandal. For example, Sean Hannity of Fox News has devoted much of his daily TV and radio shows to the issue. Smith, he said, is an important voice in the story.

“She’s one of the ones who’s been impacted the most,” he said Friday. “The families haven’t gotten answers, and I think she has a right to know the full story more than any of the rest of us, especially after eight months.”

‘I’ve heard nothing’

Again:  It should be noted the State Department was not stonewalling Patricia Smith. The State Department was following every protocol in every state, and remaining in touch with Sean Smith’s widow, Heather Smith.

Donald Trump knew he could use Patricia Smith’s grief and anger, to his advantage.  The woman who wanted no attention, is now, everywhere.

Oddly enough, Patricia seems unaware her son Sean, aka “Vile Rat” was the superb gamer, and…wait for it:   A total liberal.  No mention of that in any of Smith’s speeches.Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 11.33.32 AM

Another thing Patricia Smith was unaware?  Sean recognized and supported the diplomatic efforts of the State Department to such an intense degree that he created a State Department for the game, “Eve” where his skills were, frankly; unmatched.

Sean Smith believed in diplomacy

Sean Smith believed in Hillary style diplomacy – Not Trump’s, ham-fisted means

Would Sean Smith, even with his great sense of humor, be appalled that the man with five deferments swooped in for his own purposes to take advantage of his Mother?

I think so.

Apparently, Patricia Smith – in her grief-morphed-hatred, was easy pickings for Trump.  She would forgive Sean for becoming a liberal, which he had become.  Or, in the words of his friend, AlexA flaming leftist.”

Sean Smith - flaming leftist

Sean Smith – believed in diplomacy

As an only child, I figure Sean Smith would forgive his mother for trashing the command under which he proudly served. But I like to think he would reserve a special payback for Trump. I would ask gamers what they think, but I don’t know any as crafty as VileRat to sort of, um; fix Trump’s wagon, so to speak.  Wish I did.

Sean Smith was an amazingly cool guy and good family man.  As such I think he’d be super annoyed Trump was using his mother’s mother’s misplaced grief, to manipulate, like a puppet on a string.
