Poles make up the largest foreign-born population in the United Kingdom. The organization's building was apparently defaced with graffiti that said, "Go home."

Norfolk Naval Station is the biggest naval installation in the world. But, Kerry said last November, “the land it is built on is literally sinking.”
That was just weeks before the big United Nations climate change conference in Paris, and Kerry was framing climate change as a national security issue.

In it, O'Brien spilled details of a life he thought wasn't worth living, and an affair with a teenager. officers with allegations involving a prostitute.

Investigators found him with gun still "on his right hand", and a bullet through his mouth.

Gunmen storm hotel in Mogadishu; 15 killed, police say

Mogadishu, Somalia (CNN)Gunmen stormed a hotel in the Somali capital The June 1 siege occurred at the Ambassador Hotel, a popular spot for Somali politicians and Westerners.of Mogadishu on Saturday after detonating a car filled with explosives at the hotel gate -- an attack that has left at least 15 people dead and 25 others injured, police said.
Following the car explosion, someone blew themselves up inside the Naso Hablod hotel as gunmen stormed the building, Somali police Capt. Aden Dahir said. Police responded and engaged in a gunbattle with the suspects for several hours, Dahir said.
The Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on its main broadcaster, Radio Andalus.
Most of those killed and injured were civilians who were passersby and customers of nearby shops and a gas station, police said.
The hotel is frequented by Somali government officials, lawmakers and security officers, Dahir said.
Video on Twitter showed an ambulance, sirens blaring, speeding away from scene amid the sound of gunfire.

Merkel sees no need to rush Britain into quick EU divorce

German Chancellor Angela Merkel sought on Saturday to temper pressure Merkel sees no need to rush Britain into quick EU divorcefrom Paris, Brussels and her own government to force Britain into negotiating a quick divorce from the EU, despite warnings that hesitation will let populism take hold.
Eurosceptics in other member states applauded Britons' decision to leave the European Union in a referendum that sent shockwaves around the world, with far-right demands for a similar vote in Slovakia underlining the risk of a domino effect.
With the referendum decision finally made on Thursday and Prime Minister David Cameron having announced his resignation, European politicians and institutions felt free to shower demands on Britain over its future outside the world's largest trading bloc.
The European Central Bank said Britain's financial industry, which employs 2.2 million people, would lose the right to serve clients in the EU unless the country signed up to its single market - anathema to "Leave" campaigners, who are set to lead the next government in London.
Almost alone in continental Europe, Merkel tried to slow the rush to get Britain out of the EU door. Europe's most powerful leader made clear she would not press Cameron after he indicated Britain would not seek formal exit negotiations until October at least.
"Quite honestly, it should not take ages, that is true, but I would not fight now for a short time frame," Merkel told a news conference.





Wukan's 'rebel' villagers take to streets in ongoing protest

Restarting a movement?genuinely elected government but many here are wondering if the so-called "Wukan experiment" is about to die.
If it does it won't be without a fight.
Thousands of villagers have been taking to the streets every day in a brazen challenge to the authorities.
At the time of writing there has not yet been an attempt to smash these demonstrations but special police are moving into the area by the busload.
The Guangdong Government has been urging us to leave.
There are really only two possibilities.
One: They think that without media coverage some of the steam will come out of the protests, allowing the nearby city government to come up with some sort of negotiated settlement.
Two: With no international media to observe and record, the riot police can be sent in to bring Wukan under control the hard way.
We asked government official Chen Jiasheng, if we left, how likely it would be for this second option to occur and he told the BBC: "As head of the Guangdong provincial press office I can guarantee you that your fantasy will never happen."





Richard Rosario, Wrongly Convicted Man, Stuns Judge at Hearing

A Bronx man who served 20 years in prison for a murder that more than "Mr. Rosario, you realize that by doing this you are asking to keep a murder indictment against you," said Bronx Supreme Court Justice Robert Torres. "This is a very unusual application." a dozen alibi witnesses say he could not have committed threw a wrench Friday into plans to dismiss the case against him.
Richard Rosario, over the objections of prosecutors, asked the court not to drop the charges until a full investigation could be done that exonerates him.
"It's clear that I'm innocent," he said. "I've been in prison for 20 years saying that I'm innocent. I've been transparent and forthcoming with information to prove my innocence. And it seems that the NYPD and the DA's office position is that the truth doesn't matter."
"The public should know the truth," he said.
The stunned judge asked Rosario if he was sure this is what he wanted.

“She is inside the house still with the weapon, and at some point in a conversation between him and his mother, she puts the weapon down,” Pierce said. “And then he calls police; he calls 911 at that point.”

Trump: Clinton is a 'world-class liar'

After enduring weeks of self-inflicted wounds, the speech was Trump's most professional political address since he became the presumptive nominee in early May. It seemed to fuse his volatile, off-the-cuff political style with a more traditional brand of political discourse that puts reasoned arguments before voters as they make their choice for President.

Ex-House Speaker, 'serial child molester' Dennis Hastert goes to prison

Chester Hastert the Molester Goes to Jail

Dennis Hastert goes to prison

I find it so interesting, how weak, and feeble, old people appear... when I see old people who are on their way to jail, after being convicted for molesting children.

They are delivered into the jail cell in a wheel chair,

they are escorted by people on both sides as if they can’t walk or stand, they bent over hobbling…

when the reality is, when these old molesters were in their young 20s, 30s, 40s…,

they held children down and raped them,

they convince children to trust them, then they took advantage of a child’s innocence by intimidating the child into a sexual act.

Now these old “men generally”, appear to present a picture of such weakness, and ineptness, that one would wonder how on earth, could this person have committed such heinous crimes?

Do not be fooled…

Hastert is an ugly man, and what he did to those boys, was all but “weak”… in fact, his actions should have been exposed decades ago so that when he did go to jail, he… himself…

could have been victimized in the same manner in which he stole the innocence of those boys.

Bill Cosby… is another fine example of a person who abused for decades, and now present an appearance of ineptness.







Kendrick Johnson investigation: Feds will not file charges

Kendrick Johnson’s Death will go un punished

A medical examiner determined in 2013 that Johnson died of "positional asphyxia" after he was found dead in a rolled-up gym mat at Lowndes High School.

It is truly a human shame when an 18-year-old boy is murdered on the campus of a southern high school

and no one has the balls, or moral strength, to come forward with the truth.

Those who know what really happened to Kendrick Johnson, you have kept your mouth closed for those who will do the same thing to you, if not actually killing you, perhaps, abusing you…

in some way, and not batting any eye while doing so.

Poor character in those who would kill, have no problem turning that focus on all who would be dictated to by their own weakness as a human being.

You said nothing as Kendrick Johnson’s life was taken, and one day, this same act may be reciprocated on you, when you are the one that is the victim, and those who know, or saw the act that harmed you…., said nothing.

Only then, will you truly understand how piss poor of character you have, by saying nothing, as a young man’s family suffer internally for years.

We are all human beings first, and it is our individual decision to choose to do the right thing, a hundred times a day,

and when you choose not to..., only once in the hundreds of decisions daily, your poor choice,

can affect the life of one that causes his/her family to be heartbroken for decades.

This lack of action by those who know, is an act of

Extremely Flawed Human Beings”.







Few records for men sentenced by judge accused of misconduct

Mis-Conduct by a sitting Judge was known

The judge resigned in May following a commission's investigation that found more than 4,600 photos of nude or partially clothed men on computers belonging to the judge and financial records that showed he paid thousands of dollars from his business accounts to several defendants who appeared in his court. There isn’t any act or action that one can commit continuously, over the years,that no one that works with you, have not “noticed” as part of your personality type, or your behavioral traits…

to include acts, and actions, that are considered

outside of the norm/rules”.

In this instance, Judge Richard Milliman... used the act of issuing community services as a punishment for 254 men,

was his way of blackmailing men into performing for his sexual perversion.

His use of this tool didn’t go un noticed yet, no one said or did anything that would have gotten this man fired for decades.

Why are we so willing to ignore flawed behavior in those in powerful positions?

Abuses took place, and those that worked close to, and with Milliman, whispered behind closed doors, on breaks, in their homes, and at the local bar, discussing the perverted acts Milliman would probably be doing behind closed doors,

with those that were under his rule as a judge.

Saying nothing is the act of collusion...,

with those who commit acts of perversion or crime.







Stephen Curry ejected for tossing mouthpiece that hit fan

Stephen Curry ejected

I simply must speak to the new meaning of the word "King", because what the "King" has done, over the past 2 NBA Championship Games, is simply
"King Like Domination".

Perhaps King James has finally woke up, with respect to understanding, that it is he, who is the strongest and the best, if and when he chooses to take over.

If LJ decides to duplicate his King James like performance in the final game of this NBA Season, there will be a very good chance that this time, he may actually win this years NBA Championship, and set all kinds of records by doing so.

The first game of this series told me that the Worriers were to good of a "Team", and they would easily prevail over the Cavs....,

but the King woke up, and opted to "fight", and things has changed in a significant way, such that, with the talent on the Cavs team, beside the King performing in this manner...., even the best team in the NBA will a have huge problem in defeating this LJ Team.







FBI found hundreds of classified files on Petraeus biographer Broadwell’s computer

Hillary thanks Petraeus for providing a buffer

Good Old Boy System Protects "All" top level people, who commit the same crime that would send the lower ranking individuals...,

to jail with terms associated with their crimes, as being

"egregious, horrific, in-excusable, and damaging to U.S. security".

When you are high ranking military, or civilian, or high ranking politician,

you are given the benefits, that those who are rich, and famous, get when they break the law.

Petraeus actions, has sent lower ranking people to jail, but since he was a very high ranking military officer, he was protected by his cronies, and his example provided the protections to ensure that Hillary Clinton receives the same type of condoned unfair treatment for her actions, using Petraeus lack of punishment, as a reason to "not to punish Hillary."

For Hillary has, many times stated, she has done nothing different than others in her position has done so why should she feel any sense that she has done anything wrong.

Why is America A.F.U....

this is the reason.







Man exonerated 8 years after assassin confessed to murders

Man exonerated 8 years after assassin confessed to murders

At the age of "14", innocence is a valid word, and innocence is

a "valid mental and emotional size",

To the Judicial System, as a operating conglomerate cesspool of flawed humans with flawed character,

a 14 year old boy was a victim, due to the lack of collective quality, and qualified human beings, whom all suck at what they represent.

If one would ever consider replacing a company, for piss poor performance, the entire Justice System, if treated equally, wound need a complete overhaul of every individual who serves as a person that receives a check every two weeks.

Tradition of ignorance, and flawed behavior, within the justice system, has paved the way for so many fu$$ed up acts and actions that caused the life of a 14 year old child to be subjected to a judicial system, designed for mature adults.

I'm Sorry

is unacceptable, and ought to be considered obscene...

to a now, 22 year old, who has been subjected to horrid life conditions, living in prison,
minus any semblance of love and affection.

People need to go to jail for this wrongful act,
because $millions in cash awards,

can't heal the wounds suffered in prison as a 14 year child.

In Lifting Cavs to Title, LeBron James Takes Place Among NBA's Ultimate Winners 6/21



Now that the dust has settled 2 days after the best

Here are my thoughts.


We observed what it means to view two sides of quality performance in highly talented professional teams,
and highly talented individuals,
and when the last second ticked off of the clock,
it was the most talented individua,l on the court,
that dictated his dominance over the most talented team,
on the court.


However, game 5,
provided a window into what was to take place over the next 3 games, in that, the legs grew weak
and the 3 point shots were not as accurate,
and the prolific scoring of the Worriers...
was stymied, by a aggressive defense by Cleveland,
who turned up the tempo, and the heat,
such that... the waning legs of the 3 point shooters,
could not lift, and sustain the long 3 point shots,

“Tell you the Truth
to piss you off,


Tell you a Lie
to make you smile"




Long ago,
the fear of telling the truth
of what I did that would lead to an ass whopping
by my parents,
faded away.


To this day,
the truth is the last thing that I fear,
and I

in fact,
I challenge the truth, in that,
I demand of myself
to always tell the truth
regardless of the circumstances I may put myself in.


The Truth,
when living it,
forces me to make the right decisions
each and every day, and if…
and when I falter as a human being,
I tell the truth to those
whom I may have hurt verbally or emotionally.


Telling the truth
allows me to feel extremely confident
in all my acts and actions, to the extent that,
I don’t find myself chasing words,
worrying about whether or not,
my words spoken yesterday,
will be consistent with the words
that I speak today or tomorrow.


Telling the truth
allows me to feel extremely confident
in how I approach any relationship of any kind,
and for me,
speaking the truth from my heart,
forces the person that I’m speaking to…,
to make the adjustments to
the words of truth.


Telling the truth,
all the time,
generally causes a lot of people
to get pissed off at me,
for the truth is hurtful
to some who refuse to speak the truth,
and my willingness to live by the truth
becomes the a extra shield of confidence
that my choices are
the correct choices
when I piss people off with the truth.


I can tell you a lie
about where I have been and
have you smile,

I can tell you a lie
as to who I went with…,
to see you smile,

I can tell you a lie
of what was discussed
to convince you to smile,

I can tell you a lie
as to how much money I spent,
to see you smile,

I can tell you a lie
of where I went yesterday afternoon
to make you smile,

I can tell you a lie
of whether or not I kissed her
to make you smile,

and these lies will make you smile in each instance,
and it’s the smile of trust

that will cause you so much pain
when you find out that
I have lied about any

of these instances.


It is the anger in your eyes
that informs me of the pain in your heart
that I caused,
when I told you a lie.


It’s the pain displayed in your emotions
that validates
that my lie destroyed a huge ratio of the trust
that I established in your heart.


It’s the pain that I caused
in the lie I told,
that causes me to wonder,

“How do I ask you for forgiveness”?


It’s the pain that I caused to your heart
that I acknowledge, and for me,
it is the pain that I caused
in you that leads me to wonder,

“if I’m worthy of your love”…..


For these reasons,
and for a lie that I told almost 3 decades ago,
I chose to always tell the truth
and learn to deal with your anger today,
rather than telling you a lie
and enjoying your short term smile
and eventually having to deal with
your loss of trust
in my love.

Prince and his many looks

Prince's last days: Health scares, thrilling shows, purple pianos 4/23

I fell in love with Prince’s Music
in 1979 And today…
I feel Lost in Love


In 1979…, while visiting a friend’s home…,
he played a “Prince Album” during my visit, and it was my first introduction to the voice, and the sound of a individual who made music, in a manner that I truly appreciated, from a artist perspectictive.


I have always had a deep, and compassionate heart, and on this Prince Album, from 1979…, there were two songs that seemed to understand my heart, as I looked into the eyes of the girls whom I had a crush on.


To this day…,
Prince’s songs remain on my #1’s Itunes Play List, along with many others…, all of which,
I listen to daily.


In my heart...,
I viewed Prince as the one that is still productive, and part of this world’s historical talent core that I truly cherish…,
especially after the death of MJ.

Lots of U.S. companies invest in the UK as a gateway to the rest Europe's market. Companies like Rolls Royce and JPMorgan warned before Thursday's vote that leaving the EU would put those investments and jobs in the UK at risk. Big companies and banks may also move staff to Germany or France to avoid disruption to their EU business. Why's that risky for the U.S.? There's a real fear that increased unemployment in the UK and all the uncertainty could push Britain into a recession, and it could take America's economy down with it.

Trump: Clinton is a 'world-class liar'

The Viciousness with which Trump unleashes

his attacks sears into the consciousness of the average citizen,

Trump: Clinton is a 'world-class liar'which is how, and why, Trump was successful in his destruction of all his Republican opponents.

Weaknesses of any type will be identified and exposed…,

flawed history of any type will be focused on and exploited…,

any character trait issues will be magnified as a concern that will cause confusion in those who would choose to have a dislike for a person. However, if the opponent is a person of extensive history of flaws, to include “lying, theft, or greed”,

Trump is the type of candidate that will exploit those weaknesses to an extent that, even those who find the candidate “worthy”,

would question “valid” facts and points of one’s history.

Hillary Clinton & Bill Clinton has a trove of flawed acts and actions over the past 40 years…, all of which, provides an extensive array of perspectives for Trump to take in his attacks.

The Clinton’s are their own worst enemy in this instance, and it is their past that will be so focused on by this human pit bull that, even if Hillary is elected…

she will walk into the office severely wounded, to the extent that, even she will question her qualifications,

because the world will know them all as being “FACTS”.

This will be a bumpy ride for the Clintons.





John Lewis leads sit in

Finally, They Stand For Right As Elected Officials

John Lewis leads sit inFor decades, every elected person who have sat on the seats of office as an elected member of the house,

have failed all American Citizens with their collective lack of honorable representation of the Citizens of this great nation.

We have allowed “dereliction of duty”, to permeate the halls of the house, and we have done absolutely nothing about it…,

yet we keep electing the same failed representatives over, and over, again. I’d call that “our fault”, and we continue to deserve all the piss poor representation that we have received from all the sit in the house of representatives.

However, someone has decided that “enough is enough”, and that individual has a history of taking a stance against flawed people, and flawed systems, by standing beside, and marching with MLK himself, in the 1960s.

America is no longer what it was 50 years ago demographically, and those who continue to hold on to the past, must be removed as soon as possible.

An old fashion sit in is a decent start.

We need citizens to go to the house and sit in with those few who represent all of us.

Here is what I like about what you are doing, and how you are doing it.    Most of our people have no idea of what is going on within the political arena, some who vote, vote for the person someone else told them to vote for, others vote because they are affiliated with a particular party.     Your work gives various perspectives and different views.     You provide your opinion, but never try to tell others which way to go, or what they need to decide.     I am sure that you have sent this info to Mr. Decatur, Tucker, Jones, and our most common contacts, so I will send the info to some new contacts within my email list.        Continue with your good and Godly Works, because just as Mr. James Tucker with the African-American Voice; ASKFMB is another communication source for our people as a whole.
