Brazil's Dilma Rousseff defends record at impeachment trial

Brazil's suspended President Dilma Rousseff has defended her record Brazil's Dilma Rousseff defends record at impeachment trialduring her impeachment trial in the Senate. She is accused of illegally manipulating the budget to hide a growing deficit.

Ms Rousseff said her conscience was "absolutely clean" and that she had not committed any crime.

Senators are cross-examining her. They are due to vote later this week on whether to remove her from office for good or whether to reinstate her.

Ms Rousseff is accused of moving funds between government budgets, which is illegal under Brazilian law. Her critics say she was trying to plug deficit holes

in popular social programmes to boost her chances of being re-elected for a second term in October 2014.

Ms Rousseff began her defence by reminding senators that she had been re-elected by more than 54 million voters. She said she had always honoured and upheld the Constitution.

She also reminded senators of her past as a resistance fighter who opposed military rule.

She said that even when she was tortured she continued to fight.

Her fight, she said,

had been for a more equal society and that the achievements of her government in that field were now "at risk".

She added that she was determined to continue her fight against the attacks against her,

which she said amounted to a "coup".

The sources said she did not know about it or details of the latest sexting exchange until this weekend.

“I just had to stick my hand in real quick and get it over with.”

That was around two years ago.

Tatiana, then in 10th grade, had racked up around 200 absences at her nearby high school.

She was failing all of her classes, and a handful of petty crimes had landed her in juvenile court.

Through the Queens Youth Justice Center, an alternative-to-detention program, Tatiana was placed in an all-girls group. Every Thursday, Shernette Pink, who runs the program, led the teenagers in conversations about self-esteem and motivation—discussions they rarely had at home or school. But it wasn’t all talk.

Dallas police squelch critics, questions about sniper attack

DALLAS — The day after five Dallas officers were killed by a sniper, the Dallas police squelch critics, questions about sniper attack city's police chief described the men as "guardians" of democracy, praising them for protecting the freedom to protest at a large demonstration against police brutality. President Barack Obama later eulogized the slain officers, saying they died while defending essential constitutional rights.

But nearly two months after the shootings, Dallas police have moved to silence critics and squelch lingering questions about the attack. Officers in riot gear have been told to ticket protesters who block or disrupt traffic, and Police Chief David Brown has refused to meet with demonstrators unless they agree to end their marches through downtown, which he says pose a threat to officers.

Authorities have also refused to release even the most basic information about the slayings, including any details about the weapons used, the autopsy findings and ballistics tests that could establish whether any officers were hit by friendly fire. Police have indicated that such information could be withheld almost indefinitely.

In addition, the police department's most vocal, visible critic — a 27-year-old self-styled preacher with a criminal history — has been arrested multiple times in the last month on warrants that include unpaid traffic tickets and attempts to revoke his probation from a 2009 felony.

An unemployed plumber who used to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border looking for illegal immigrants, Hall was a rising star among white supremacists.

He would often speak at rallies, promoting the goals of the National Socialist Movement, the largest neo-Nazi organization in the country, with 46 chapters in 20 states.

In a YouTube video of a 2009 anti-immigration rally in Southern California, Hall, the National Socialist Movement’s regional director there, is seen holding a megaphone with a smiling Hitler emoji sticker on it as he proclaims the need for “white immigration” and a “pro-white” America.

Trump spreads claim that Clinton's 'mentor' was 'KKK member'

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump on Saturday pushed back against "Donald J.

A Trump spokesman, Jason Miller, declined to comment, and a message left with Clinton's campaign was not returned.Hillary Clinton's efforts to link him to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Republican nominee retweeted a supporter's post that the Democratic nominee "said a KKK member was

her mentor."

And speaking later in Des Moines, Iowa, he dredged up Clinton's use of the term "super predators" in the 1990s to argue that he, not Clinton, offered African-Americans the best choice for president. Presidential candidates often misled by crowds they draw Trump's retweet and his latest appeals to black voters capped off a week of increasingly ugly and racially charged accusations between the two leading presidential candidates, during which Trump called Clinton a "bigot" and the Democratic nominee charged that Trump's campaign was built on "prejudice and paranoia" while also tying him to the KKK. "@DiamondandSilk: Crooked Hillary getting desperate. On TV bashing Trump. @CNN, she forgot how she said a KKK member was her mentor," Trump tweeted Saturday.

Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson -- better known as Diamond and Silk, two African-American sisters supporting Trump who frequently speak at his rallies -- confirmed to CNN that the tweet referred to the late West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd, a former KKK member whom Clinton mourned in 2010 as "a true American original, my friend and mentor."

Human Behavior Corrected by Humans seeing abuse of Humans

I told them identifying features. They then looked at the computer, at the report. The doctor put his hand on my back and gave his condolences. I lost myself," he said. We are all born as

we feel the pain of other human being, when the individual human being is being mistreated as compared to others, specifically, because the individual is not of the characteristics of those who the individual is being attack by.

Iraq Opens Airspace to Russia After Iran Deployment

In the late 1980's, Russia's 20 plus years in Afghanistan, in an Iraq Opens Airspace to Russia After Iran Deployment equally as failed attempt as the U.S. current 12 plan in Afghanistan, cost Russian's $Trillions, which played a huge role in the Russian collapse of the 1990s.

Today, Russia, a nation that runs towards any conflict with glee, based on full expectation of "exploitations",

is climbing into a hole that is far to deep for them to easily withdraw from in Iraq.

Russia, already has conflicts going on in the Ukraine, and in Syria, and now Russia is playing tag between Iran, by using their Iran lands to launch attacks in Syria, while shaking hands with Iraq's leadership, in what can only be construed as...

This isn't a prudent move at all..., in fact, this move will get uglier before it ever gets better.

Louisiana flood: Worst US disaster since Hurricane Sandy, Red Cross says

Using L.A. Flood Water to douse C.A. Wild Fires

ASKFMB's U.S ANTI-FLOODING SYSTEM

is a concept to move huge sums of water from anywhere in the country to another side of the country, in a matter of hours.

The perfect example is taking place today, in that, in the recent days, Louisiana has suffered from 26 plus inches of rain that has devastated thousands of homes.  While on the west coast, California is being subjected to wildfires that are unpredictable and destroying property and homes.

ASKFMB's U.S ANTI-FLOODING SYSTEM

concept is a design to suck huge sums of water from one location in the nation, and move it to another, which in this case, would provide the removal of huge sums of flooding water from Baton Rouge, and send it directly to the locations of the huge wildfires taking place in California.

WHY CAN'T WE DO THIS...

Simple technology can accomplish, while creating millions of jobs all around this nation, while building a concept that provides some mitigation to all the flooding that devastate this nation today, and well into the future.

A Russian Governor for Kirov Region, Nikita Belukh, is videotaped with $444k in cash spread out on a table, which is a bribe that he accepts.

 

Corruption is a fact of life for any and all that represent any aspect of any government around the world, predominantly because those who serve in powerful seats as government representatives, wield the power of awarding contracts to businesses worth $millions monthly, and annually.

Tony Romo has fractured vertebra in back, may miss 6-10 weeks

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has suffered a broken bone in his back, and a source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday that he could miss six to 10 weeks.

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has suffered a broken bone in his back, and a source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday that he could miss six to 10 weeks.

The source told ESPN that the injury -- suffered on the third play of the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday -- is a compression fracture of L1 vertebra. A source also told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that Romo would not require surgery.

Coach Jason Garrett, who announced the injury on a conference call Saturday, said it would not cost Romo the season and he declined to rule out the quarterback for the regular-season opener against the New York Giants on Sept. 11. "We don't believe that to be the case at all," Garrett said when asked if Romo's season was in jeopardy.

Colin Kaepernick protests anthem over treatment of minorities

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he refused to stand during the national anthem Friday because of his views on the country's treatment of racial minorities.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media after Friday's game.

"To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." The 49ers acknowledged in a statement that Kaepernick sat on the team's bench during the national anthem before their game against the Green Bay Packers in Santa Clara, California.

Dwyane Wade addresses fatal shooting of cousin: Enough is enough

Brazilian police say American swimmers were not robbed at gunpoint at a gas station as they claimed, but a law enforcement official did say a security guard used a gun to control the situation involving Ryan Lochte, Jimmy Feigen, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz. Brazilian police had previously said no gun was involved. The change in the version of events came after police interviewed one of the security guards on Thursday. It further deepened the mystery of what happened inside the station and set off an international dispute.

"No robbery was committed against these athletes.

Mom of autistic man at center of Charles Kinsey shooting 7/29/16

Law Enforcement, Unconscious of 

Civilian Citizen's Humanism

 

The Long Lasting Negative Affects
of a life changing interaction with a Police Officer...,
is measured by the degree to which the mind of the individual, can maintain calm...,
without full collapse.

 

The extent of the internal damage done to the individual, is based on the individual, however, no individual is ever strong enough to feel "no conscientious mal affects"..., if he/she, or a loved one, is harmed by a police officer, specifically, because we are all human beings first, and the nature of all human beings..., is the uniqueness of the human being,
to feel the pain of others,
and the pain of a loved one.

 

Why does Police Departments Blame Citizens?

 

Those who "choose the life of police officer",
decide for themselves, to participate in a career that ensures conflict with a citizen, on a daily basis, and when the police officer becomes consumed by the daily conflict with citizens, and acquiesce to the "us against them", "gang member style disposition" towards citizens, then that police officer...
ought to be removed, and never allowed to wield a badge ever again.

 

Unconscious Loyalty to the Department

 

It matters to the entirety of a city, when
"1" Police Officer, is found not guilty... for a fatal shooting,
when the citizens interpret the shooting as being
"unjustified",
and when the entire justice system, blindly supports the police officer, while showing clear favoritism toward the police officer, as compared to the lost life of even "1" citizen..,
it is the citizen's of the city, who have been double victimized by those who display human character traits of loyalty...
to the umbrella to which they "serve with", and not a display of empathy for those to whom they have pledged to
"SERVE & PROTECT".

The suit, which describes Fox News as a misogynistic, sex-fueled cult, also alleges that newly appointed Fox News co-president Bill Shine encouraged her to drop her harassment claims.are words that are used religiously within any large entity, but, the facts have been prove that,

Sexual Harassment, Racism, Sexism, Hypocracy

are words that can be assigned to the behavior exposed in written reports, of the actual behavior that take place at the top levels of most large entities.

Bill Cosby has set the standards for "Sexual Predator Behavior",
however, Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros, is only the latest woman to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment imposed on her person by former network chief Roger Ailes.

Yet, Andrea Tantaros includes host Bill O'Reilly, as one of the individuals who is being identified as one of the power participants in her sexual harassment allegations.

It would not be surprising if every large news entity finds themselves with these same types of allegations, going back decades, primarily because,

it was an expected, accepted and condoned

illegal behavior.

White Lives Matter group protests outside NAACP in Houston's Third Ward

Irony in the White Lives Matter protest

White Lives Matter group protests outside NAACP in Houston's Third Ward Protesting against the NAACP, because the NAACP has kept their mouth shut, regarding the position that the

Black Lives Matter, and other pro black organizations, have taken as of late, with regards to police shootings of black boys, and men, that purported "rightful actions", but slowly released video proved otherwise.

Here is what I know about the NAACP...,

they ignore any criticism what so ever, and when you attempt to get a response from the NAACP, well....

suffice it to say...

"Just Wait"... doesn't seem to be the perspective that will ever net any results.

So...

good luck to the White Lives Matter movement, if this is your intent to get a response from the NAACP.

I speak from personal experience of attempting to voice a negative opinion regarding the NAACP...

4 years ago, and I have yet to get any type of response.
