The "State" of the American Way-2010 A Return to the Dixiecratic Way

The United States House of Representative takeover, by the Republican Party; fueled by the so-called TeaParty Express is being touted as the biggest take over, change, switch or reordering since 1948.

That is Nineteen-hundred & forty-eight in the year of Our Lord & Saviour.

In 1948, the Dixiecrat James O. Eastland was flexing his segregationist muscle, in Congress.

So, finally, we have a definitive qualification for where the ultra-conservative politicos; republican & democrat, tea-partiers and dixiecrats
want to take us back to.

The Country they want to take us back to, is the country of James O. Eastland. Taking the country back is a return to the actions of slave plantation owners, who sought to deny Fannie
Lou Hamer the right to register to vote. It is that country, that they are trying to "take back".

The states-rightest have been waiting for this opportunity since the 1964-1965 Civil Rights legislation. And the Republicans are not finished. Boehner really cried, because of the satanic pact, made in 2009 to disrupt, distort and decimate the intended "policies of the Obama Administration."

Republican Judd Gregg was to be an early on appointee of the Obama Administration. However it was diverted through conservative wrangling, wresting him away from his former decision to accept the appointment.

Without doubt John Boehner, knows the efforts to defeat Obama are indeed race-based and "states-rights" based.
He also knows, that if the rhetoric of the Tea Party Express, Sarah Pallin and others, will end in the destruction of the Nation.

It's not political gamesmanship anymore, or campaign politics. The continuing of the Democratic Republic is at stake.

As I listen to an assessment on Al Sharpton's - "Keeping It Real" , the Savannah, Georgia Rep for National Action Network, is talking about how "Red" Georgia has become in the aftermath of last night's elections.

We should all remember however, the Cherokee.

And how they were driven from Georgia in the 1800's. A PBS story about the "Trail of Tears" explains how Georgia pushed out aggressively the Indians of that day.

In the days of slavery in America, the Indians were required to assimilate in to the "american way", which was euro-caucasian.

The same is occurring now. Hispanics are being forced to drop there culture and assimilate.

The Immigration process to seperate families is "a return to plantation philosophy" for which america has never left.

Mocha Chocalata!:Curbside ViewsBBOP-Review::The BigSnitchola --Black Belt of Poverty Review-On the TightRope!

In an earlier review it was said. 'So, sweet city of somber solace, seek to soothe your unsatisfied soul; as the souls of the sidewalk sepulchres scream bloody murder. You, who ritually deliver young souls into temptation, where will you disquise as you try to slide to a slow dirge, mimicking the pain that so many have lived with and do now sing and play and dance with. Yeah, it is true what that song say, "everybody want to sing my blues, nobody want to live my blues."
Speaking of the Crescent City then, and now as Louisiana experiences the latest "catastrophic occurrence" -OIL; the America we dreamed of is farther distancing itself from a final [r]evelation of what it might have become. "Meriknoir" [Black-America/Afro-America or Americans of African descent] is experiencing a morphing in which it does not have the luxury of belaboring the point.

While folks are trying to figure out if they are with the current POTUS, the opposition is taking us back to the 1870's. When you consider the current atmosphere in Louisiana - one black congressman from NOLA, the first since the end of Reconstruction; gone with the wind. And currently, a state senator in federal court, two city-councilmen yet to be arraigned federal court and four mayors under FBI investigation in La. Middle District US Atty Office. The New Roads "investigation" is ongoing and hot. The new US Atty for the middle district is a Pointe Coupee native. Recently, the Mayor of New Roads spoke out against the way the Victoria Gosserand case initiated. Gosserand is charged with crimes resulting in the death of 23 year old Terri Parker. An indictment of vehicular homicide was handed down. The "colonel" and his general will be doing all possible to put things in the proper perspective.

It is without doubt the "ruling class" is pushing to regain control of lost ground.
Factor in the attempt to dismantle the current White House Administration through an Article 5 Constitutional Convention emanating from New Orleans.

State Rep. Nick Lorusso, who represents Lakeview and portions of Mid-City, wants Congress to call a convention of state legislatures for the purpose of amending the U.S. Constitution.

A Republican attorney who was elected to the Louisiana Legislature in 2007, Lorusso cites Article V of the U.S. Constitution, which states that if 34 state legislatures apply for a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution, Congress is required to call one. NOLA Story.

Lorusso sponsored several resolutions in the recent Legislation session calling for the Article 5 Convention. Of Course, un-beknownst to the masses, other states with similar interest are prepared to become a part of the initiative. All the while WE, the people are trying to figure out if we support the brother!

Recently two segments of 'Meriknoir' thinkers & activist debated about the need for a Black Agenda. Then on April 20, 2010 an Oil Well blow out, blew-up and continues to contaminate. Black Agenda v. Code Noire ::-:: If there ever was any doubt about reparations, Farrakhan broke down in Atlanta June 26, 2010.

New Orleans is scheduled to host the first meeting of the World Deltas Dialogue in October 2010. How, appropriate. And who knew?

The facts of this blow-out will cause the ultimate debacle of commerce as we know it globally.
The Government is not letting you know everything about the Gulf Oil Spill. Benzene in incredible amounts is being released into the air. People are getting sick. UN Vans by the thousands are parked in secluded areas out of sight from the public on AF Base in Florida just below Jacksonville. They are also in many other areas. Gassed to Death

That said, black folks everywhere are still figuring out what to make of this new era. New Day!?!
While all of this is going on, the judgment that is on the Land is exacerbated because there is no justice in the Land & the justice that is, is especially so unjust in Louisiana.

Each year the state legislature is steadily criminalizing [passing laws felonizing] more people.

Yet, the LAW [the lawman] kills citizens by lethal force & nothing happens, they are let off. Currently, in Winn Parish, Louisiana; Scott Nugent tortured Baron "Scooter" Pikes to death January 17, 2008
. Several delays have occurred.

In Chicago torturer Jon Burge's recent conviction has sparked US Rep Danny Davis to sponsor a bill that would make police torture a crime against humanity. In another instance a 15 year old was beat by Houston police.

Gun violence, in 'Meriknoir' communities are prevalent in communities of all sizes. Towns of rural populations of less than 3,000 to metropolises are influenced by retaliative response, brought on by "a terror influenced society", hellbent on an eye for an eye.

Letters: Integration was necessary in our society


The letter "An unexpected casualty of affirmative action" [June 27] overlooks the fact that the affirmative-action initiative was not set forth to provide preference to nonwhites, but to integrate them into the workforce at a time when they were completely excluded from society.

I'll admit that in recent years the term has become grossly overused and has lost its original meaning. The integration of nonwhites into the workforce and the school systems (college acceptances, etc.) was, and still is, an extremely important factor in our society today. For too long "middle-age white men" were the predominant candidates for almost every job position, with the exception of those belittled and left for women (secretarial, educational, etc.).

On the other hand, just because someone who is applying for a certain position hears that a department is expected to "fill their open positions according to the affirmative-action plan" does not necessarily mean that he or she will pass up a perfectly qualified and exceptional candidate due to race. If that is the case, then the original ideals of the affirmative-action plan are being abused, twisted and made counterproductive.

No single person should be preferred based on race, whether or not they are black and are given preference due to affirmative action, or white and are being given preference due to racism. The suggestion that middle-age white men have been the targets of racial profiling (a gross overstatement, in my opinion) in recent years has some truth to it; but it has merely been the realization of their dominance in the workforce and society's attempts to create a more balanced platform for those of any race, gender, or religion. If a certain amount of "racial profiling" is necessary for creating an integrated society, then so be it.

Gosserand pleads not guilty

  • Advocate Westside bureau
  • Published: Aug 26, 2010

Victoria Gosserand pleaded not guilty this morning in the Dec. 23 killing of one woman and the injuring of another in New Roads.

Gosserand, 24, was arraigned in a Pointe Coupee Parish courtroom today. A grand jury indicted her in February on one count each of vehicular homicide and first-degree negligent injuring.

Gosserand was behind the wheel in the Dec. 23 wreck that killed Terri Parker, 23, and sent Kyle Riviere, 23, to a hospital with serious injuries.

Assistant District Attorney Tony Clayton said the Ventress woman’s blood-alcohol content was 0.30, or nearly four times the 0.08 level at which a person is considered to be driving drunk, the night of the wreck.

New Roads Police Officer Brandon Spillman, who witnessed the wreck, testified in March shortly before his Louisiana National Guard unit deployed to Iraq.

Spillman said he was parked in a vacant lot while on duty around midnight at the intersection of False River Drive and Hospital Road when he witnessed Gosserand speed through a red light without attempting to stop or slow down.

The impact of the crash sent both Gosserand’s sport utility vehicle and Riviere’s Toyota Camry spinning through the intersection, Spillman said.

The officer said he saw a large object, which turned out to be Camry passenger Parker of New Roads, flying through the air. When Parker landed about 30 feet from the point of impact, Riviere’s car appeared to run over her body, Spillman said.

Spillman said he detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from an “aggressive and uncooperative” Gosserand. Later, at Pointe Coupee General Hospital, it took several hospital staffers, Spillman and Gosserand’s father to restrain the cursing and flailing woman, he said.

After Spillman’s testimony, defense attorney Rob Marionneaux told 18th Judicial District Judge Alvin Batiste that Gosserand was scheduled to enter a treatment program. He did not specify what kind of treatment Gosserand would be getting.

MOB RULE 2010:-Louisiana? What will you do when the Kingdom Comes

In the years before the passage of the Civil Rights Act and before Brown v. Board of Education and Little Rock and New Orleans, and even since the onslaught of slavery; in America, it has been and still is MOB RULE. The chants of 2, 4, 6, 8 we don't want to integrate rang resoundingly on the CBS Evening News in the 60's. The Jeering, then. The mobs of white folk, on the attack. Sometimes, as the police; more often than not. At other, times just mobs of white citizens. Bloody Sunday is an example of the 'mob rule' bludgeoning by law enforcement.

Now in this twenty-first century, the hollering white folks are back. As if, given a signal to "move out." Some are too young to "Know", it is a mindset of 'supremacist whites' that a negro can never actually run or 'administrate' any thing successfully. So that, it was a knee jerk reaction, to cause to think the current president could not function properly, innately. It would be beyond their reasoning to think such, for the majority.

In 1957, the mob ruled until federal troops were sent to Little Rock. In 1960 Ruby Bridges integrated as a first; the public schools in New Orleans. MOB RULED, until federal marshals were sent. And still, the shouts and jeers. The mobs.

Now, in 2010. Since the election of President Barack Obama, the mobs have ensued again. In 2007, a mass-march was held in Louisiana in the town of Jena. After the march, the father of the then sheriff-elect, wrote an article in the "family newspaper", the only paper in the town. In essence, the article said; it was time to get as busy as the civil rights activist were. The article was about "jumping frogs". The article entitled 'Old Frogs better start jumping,' was eyed by every concerned conservative in the nation. At that time, the town was ground zero.
The final statement in the article, went as such:
"Although the old guard is dying off, and getting too tired to fight, they have to muster one more charge. If they don’t, our children, and grandchildren, will never know the joy and freedom that is the bedrock of our country. The heat is slowly being turned up and the water is getting hot. The old frogs better start jumping before it’s too late."
Obama wasn't nominated or elected when the article was written. A COGIC Church was burned in Massachusetts the night Obama was elected. Yet, there is a responsive resolution to this activity.

Before Coretta King died she said it was up to the people to bring the 'right' people to justice for the murder of her husband. The information was all in the Trial Transcript. Tavis Smiley, Bill Moyers, and a Civil Rights History timeline, is occurring in recognition of April 4, 1968. It is seemingly strange, that somehow this year's Resurrection day is also the day Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated.

White Supremacist hoped Obama's win would bring a backlash. It Did. Some, are now trying to force it to be said, "it ain't so", but it is. And where will it all end. Louisiana's Legislature is attempting to force a US Constitution Article 5 - Constitutional Convention for the purposes of Amending the Constitution. Evidently the states whose Attorney's General, have filed suit because of the "HealthCare" Bill, were testing for the right number of states for the Article 5 amending, or to further insight someone to do, what they won't. It is no doubt we are On the Brink of a "wind change".

Will it be the same wind, that blew in 1963 in Dealey Plaza. Is that the coded message, the young woman was referring to the other day? After all, President Obama is definitely, not being judged by the content of his character. Besides, anyway, the Nationalist said in Jena in 2008, 'No King over Us'.

Some have mistakenly believed, that Obama's presidency was the culmination of Dr. King's dream. The presidency is just another cog in the wheel of justice. There is still much work to be done. Much WORK!! The "schisms and 'isms" are still prevalent.
The poor are still with us. And, the big dander is all up about, paying more for somebody else to receive. But wait, that sounds kinda judeo-christian, the ideals America was supposedly founded upon.

Help us, Lord Jesus. We are adrift in a stormy sea.

LouisianaWhat will you do When the Kingdom Comes!?

Louisiana ON THE BRINK of your complete implosion!! 2 April 2010

Rage Raids by FBI in Midwest 28 March 2010

I really hated to change the previous post's position. I have kept it as the last post, because it exemplified the status of louisiana justice.
However, the standard is breeched at will, by the "powers at be", not the "powers that be". At least, in its day, the infamous powers that be knew when to quit.

But this and this, absolutely take the cake. How on God's green earth does this continue in our life time. Baron "Scooter" Pikes was murdered, the weekend of MLK Day in Winnfield, Louisiana in 2008. That year, the klan; in the form of CrossStar, conducted a counter demonstration in Jena, Louisiana. Their march motto said no KING [referring to Dr. King]-over us. There was also a "counter" counter-demonstration, that day in 2008; if you will. Blacks & Whites against the klanish-types. Now, the Winn Parish Judicial structure is in effect, preparing to set Officer Scott Nugent & others free.
I have learned his -[Pikes]- grandmother died only recently in January 2010, never to see the justice done.

Not only that, but her burial was a struggle also. This article tells a story of a video alledged to be in existence that shows Pikes plight during the time of his arrest, torture & murderous death. I tell you, the government in louisiana is preparing to set Nugent free!

[ Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as one of your own country: for I am the Lord your God. ] -Leviticus 24:22

The same sort of "banana republic justice" is being meted out in Homer, Louisiana in the Claiborne Parish Judicial Process. After the case being placed in the Louisiana Attorney General's hands a "grand jury" decided not to indict officers, who quit their jobs and moved in 2009. The events surrounding the Bernard Monroe case is strange to say the least. But, for the AG to take the case, that fact; meaning something is amiss, especially so after federal involvement, a state police investigation; and no one is charged with nothing! No malfeasance, no negligent homicide, no nothing!: it's just fine to shoot & kill old men in their yards. Such gestapoism!

Grand Jury Refuses to Indict White Cop Who Killed Black Man

Friday, February 05, 2010 -Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — The case of an elderly black man who was shot to death by a white police officer in the north Louisiana town of Homer will not go to trial.

A grand jury, handled by the state attorney general's office instead of the local district attorney, returned a "no true bill" on Thursday — refusing to indict former police officer Tim Cox.

The grand jury considered and rejected charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide.

Bernard Monroe, 73, was shot outside his home by one of two white Homer police officers who had been chasing Monroe's son last Feb. 20.

Police said Monroe was armed. Witnesses dispute that.

The officers have since resigned.


No charge for La. police officer in shooting death

NEW ORLEANS — A grand jury on Thursday declined to indict a white police officer who shot an elderly black man in the small Louisiana town of Homer in a case that heightened racial tension and sparked protests.

The panel returned a "no true bill," meaning the case won't go to trial, after considering and rejecting a range of charges including murder, manslaughter and negligent homicide against former police officer Tim Cox.

Many in the rural town of 3,800 were outraged by the shooting last February of Bernard Monroe, a 73-year-old left voiceless by cancer. Police said Monroe was armed when he was shot outside his home, but witnesses said he didn't have a weapon.

The grand jury heard testimony from 20 witnesses over two days, said Kurt Wall, director of the criminal division of the state attorney general's office. The attorney general handled the case after the local prosecutor recused himself.

"We believe it was a full, complete, accurate and thorough presentation conducted at a neutral site. We respect the grand jury's decision," Wall said.

An FBI spokeswoman said the bureau is continuing to investigate the case.

The leader of the local chapter of the NAACP was angered by the decision not to charge Cox.

"I am so disappointed," said the Rev. Willie Young Sr. "When you have 12 witnesses that say the man did not have a gun and he was gunned down by police, what are you supposed to believe. We are left with the belief that police in Homer have a license to kill."

Monroe was shot by Cox last Feb. 20 after Cox and another Homer police officer chased Monroe's son through the house and shocked the younger man with a stun gun in the yard, authorities said. Louisiana State Police, which investigated the shooting, have said Cox shot Bernard Monroe several times.

Monroe, who had recently left a hospice after recovering from cancer that left him voiceless, was outside his home with about a dozen family members for a cookout when the shooting occurred.

Cox and the other officer, Joey Henry, have since resigned.

Monroe's death heightened racial tensions in the town about 50 miles northeast of Shreveport. The Rev. Al Sharpton led about 150 people in a peaceful protest march in April.

Homer Police Chief Russell Mills said Thursday night that because of the civil litigation expected to come in the case, the city attorney had advised him not to comment.

"I wish I could," Mills said. "And someday I will."

After Thursday's decision, Police Chief Russell Mills did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Claiborne Parish District Attorney Johnathan Stewart turned the case over to Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell in December 2009, saying he wanted to avoid any appearance of favoritism or conflict of interest. His office is handling other criminal cases in which Cox and Henry are witnesses, and an assistant district attorney also serves as the town attorney for Homer.
