Washington Post article distorted "Every 28 Hours" report

Today we will be joined by Arlene Eisen, the author of the Operation Ghetto Storm report on extrajudicial killings of Black people in the United States. A recent blog posted by the Washington Post distorts the finding of the report and we want to give the authors of the report who were not consulted by the writer of the post. Update: WAPO "Fact Checkers" at the time of this post has kept showing up as deleted. Arlene Eisen has made a living as a journalist, teacher (including a short time at University of Havana) and machinist. She has written two books about Vietnamese women, one was translated into 5 languages. After Katrina she worked for the Peoples’ Hurricane Relief Fund in New Orleans, mostly editing their newsletter and other written materials. Eisen started work on Operation Ghetto Storm after Trayvon Martin's murder and before George Zimmerman was charged. She then spent the next 18 months researching and writing a first quarter report, half year (every 36 hrs) and then the annual (OGS or #every28)—all of which was initially published by Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.

Do whatever you have to do to end this perpetual system of legalized slavery and civil disenfranchisement through the prisons. It's called Slavery Abolition and our ancestors like Fredrick Douglas laid out the framework for us in advance. In the news,

America: The Land of Lawlessness & Slavery

In the news,

MSNBC commentator Chris Hayes called the American government lawless on national cable television. I've been saying that for a long time, but you know it takes on a whole different tone when a white person in Corporate media says it.

Political commentator, author and famous philosopher Noam Chomsky said that America is a "very racist" and acknowledges that slavery was not abolished. He made some inaccurate statements about the facts but he gets a passing grade on his analysis.

Two undercover Oakland police officers attempted to infiltrate a demonstration against police terrorism and for victims of police murder Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Once exposed for trying to incite looting and confronted by protesters, at least one of the officers was photographed threatening unarmed people with a firearm

A United States government's plot to infiltrate Cuba's underground hip-hop movement has been exposed. "For more than two years, a U.S. agency secretly infiltrated Cuba's underground hip-hop movement, recruiting unwitting rappers to spark a youth movement against the government, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press". Funny how things work out as the United States faces upheaval from youth led movements over the issue of police murder, enslavement and terrorism.

Ferguson's white supremacist conspiracy and other assorted bs

It does not take a fictional Sherlock Holmes to show you all the bread crumbs that lead to the center of a white supremacist plot to deny Michael Brown first his life and then his post mortem civil rights. Any alleged investigation by the US Justice Department into civil rights violations must now include the St. Louis prosecutors office and specifically Robert P. McCulloch and his assistants.

CNN say it is investigating a forensic expert named Shawn Parcells who worked as an apprentice on the Michael Brown family's independent autopsy.  writing for the The Blaze, advanced propaganda attacking the autopsy by attacking Parcell's credentials. The independent autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York. CNN isn't investigating itself for not checking Parcells's inflated credentials before bringing him on air as one of their experts.

Jesse Jackson half-way corrected Don Lemon about real Black History and past rebellions that occurred in response to police terrorism.

Propaganda is the number one tool of perpetual warfare in America employed by racist corporate media.

People can be aware of propaganda but still fall under its spell in their choice of words and the language they use. I will be vented my frustration with people using words like "rioting" and "looting" and blaming black people for their victimization at the hands of white racist and non-white proxies of racism.

Ajali Shabazz-Muhammad is a Sister Friend living quietly in Newark, NJ, and posting very loudly on the internet, in an attempt to alert the Black Community to the deliberately hidden dangers lurking in every aspect of modern life, especially for the uninformed and impoverished.

A lifelong self-employed artist in temporary retirement, 5 years ago, after becoming a vegan following the advice of her husband, she began investigating the health issues which aren't covered by the mainstream media only to discover the entire paradigm of what everyone needs to live a long and vital life has been hijacked and replaced with a system that shuttles loving people from couch to costly drugs, and then to an early grave to help reduce that mythical ‘overpopulation’ the elite continuously proclaim will destroy us.

 That’s how she ran across the story of the nuclear disaster when it happened 3 years ago at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant and covered the increasingly dire updates on her Facebook page, ‘Asiatic Black Family Health’, where she alerts as many participants as she can about hidden truths surrounding health, political, spiritual and sometimes financial issues.

Communities must unite against the police

The murder of Eric Garner has once again reminded the global black community that black life means little to the police forces of the United States of America. We have only two choices the way I see it, No Justice and No Peace or we can get back to policing the police in our community.

I will also share a bit of American Pre-Revolutionary history and why Americans who considered themselves patriots should recognize Eric Garner as a hero and lobby against police violence and murders in America.

In global news, the racist regime of Benjamin Netanyahu continues its bombardment of the Gaza strip. Besides the loss life, the most troubling thing I have seen in relation to the massacre is that Black people are not only saying they do not care, but some are actively lending aid to the enemy which is racism and the global system of white supremacy, not Palestinians.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik was there and said he wants to be the new face of criminal justice reform He also will discuss the Uniform Law Commission which “is a non-profit, unincorporated association. Established in 1892, the ULC provides states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity”. Mr. Ervin witnessed some interesting things and was able to ask a room full of lawyers why they were not addressing the 13th Amendment which enshrined slavery in the US Constitution and did not abolish it.
