Corey Booker must have been in full Nike gear today when he decided to sacrifice everything for what he believes in. And what does he believe? That Kavanaugh (Trump’s pick for Supreme Court Justice) is a racist that should not hold one of the most important seats in the American justice system.
He believes it SO much that he has released confidential internal government emails to the public, so we can see exactly who Kavanaugh is, and more importantly, how this nation works to separate us based on race.
Corey understands that releasing these documents means he could be expelled from the Senate… but he took the Nike stance and said “fuck it. just do it.”
“I’m knowingly violating the rules,” Mr. Booker said, adding that he would accept whatever consequences resulted from his act, including possible expulsion from the Senate. “I’m releasing committee confidential documents.”
“This is about the closest I’ll ever come in my life to having an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment’,” Mr. Booker said. When Republicans on the committee said he was in violation of the standing rules of the Senate, he said: “Apply the rule. Bring the charges.” – NY TIMES
So speaking of keeping an ear to the ground, it is being reported that China will be making it rain… yes, REAL rain. Remember all those conspiracy theories about “weather control” that you laughed about? Well, China is getting the last laugh as it launches what they call “cloud seeding chambers” (space-age chambers filled with silver iodide) into the sky to impregnate clouds with liquid gold over the Tibetian sky.
The process, called “cloud seeding”, invented by a GE scientist in ’46, has been manipulating weather for folks who can afford it for decades (#Message), but the technology was never extended or subsidized to the areas of the earth that need it the most.
Now China has figured out a way to make it rain for everyone… well actually 7% of China’s population (but it’s better than zero). At $8k a pop, large clouds of rain will be created and funneled into the Tibetan Plateau, the most drought striken area on earth.
While the new technology can be used to help affected regions receive sustenance to help with food creation and prevent starvation, understand the technolgy is developed by the defense department…the US and Russia have been trying to scale their own weather manipulation systems to skew their advangtage on the battle field since the technology was created.. scary.
On my day off, I decided to take a quick ride up to Flint being its close proximity to my own town. In the past, I’ve heard numerous folk tales about Flint being the murder capital behind Detroit or the fact that Flint is rarely spoken about in the media for anything positive, so a road trip was necessary to observe what all the media hype was about .
Arriving in Flint, the first thing that I observed other than the gigantic water tower, is the massive buildings within the downtown area . There are cobblestone streets , two massive rival university campuses and even a Farmer’s Market . There’s two communal structures for the residents (YMCA and YWCA) which express the need for racial eradication and then the aesthetically pleasing Flint River with numerous buttresses and Aqueducts that admonish the beautification of the area . Even as I pull over at the nearest BP gas station , I am the only black guy to be pumping my gas while surrounded by twelve delighted Caucasian men..
Then it hit me…I’m not actually in Flint…I’m in Flint-to-be.
Cases of Bottled water stand ready for disbursement outside a Flint, MI Church
See as I decided to drive six miles south to the beginning of Flint and the old excavated site where the General Motors plant used to be , off of Lippincourt Boulevard and Atherton Road , there is a very different Flint ; the real Flint . Abandoned homes, liquor-guns-pawn shops all in unison like a church choir . Speaking of churches , they’ve now become the refugee station, where bottled water is simultaneously dropped off and received to gracious inhabitants who seemingly weren’t even in existence of my mind frame until I departed from the shadows of Downtown Flint.
These discarded negroes…many satisfactory in appearance , affably retrieving bottles of Aquafina and Dasani as rations in order to fulfill their daily or weekly quota for survival ; it begins to snow outside. The further deep into Flint that I traveled , the more I observed something so familiarly similar to most desecrated neighborhoods that I’ve visited ; nothingness.
It is blatantly obvious that after Center Road and the beginning of Lippincourt Boulevard , that something of precedence commenced . As a matter of fact , since 1999 , when the layoff of 77,000 workers was initiated by General Motors , this something began to transpire …
Similar to Chicago, Baltimore, Ferguson, and New Orleans, a negro Auschwitz existed . A land mass that not only existed for temporary investment but to be vacated for permanent and historical gentrification along with genetic annihilation. These new negroes… Ultimately were The offspring of proud fathers and mothers who broke their backs aimlessly in order to provide a level of financial sustainability in a city’s whose intent was to provide an interim fix to an indefinite mindset; they never saw it coming . And like often times throughout history , the same individuals whom strip humanity from the alleged miscreants, are the same ones to innocently creep back and apply a level of mental salve to ease the traumatic pain…
Seven miles north, I converse with a Caucasian resident who states that “homes must be improved for the sake of Flint’s preservation– this is an investment that I won’t be denied “. He’s right , he won’t be denied . Perhaps this reluctant catastrophic water event was not only planned but awaited upon , because the city was becoming way to dirty; it required an ethnic cleansing …
Speaking of…next week is the anniversary of Slobodan Milosevic’s trial in The Hague for war crimes against humanity . Maybe that’s why there’s limited press in Flint … Because if we were to charge folk with war crimes in this city as well as this country, then The Hague’s jail cells would be overcrowded with the same proprietors who caused overcrowded within Flint’s jail cells during its initial decline…
We will always love Kanye for taking a stand for Black people during Katrina…. Ten years later we see how prolific this moment was …
The powers that be tend to underestimate the power and influence of the Hip Hop nation. With just seven words, Kanye, “a rapper”, was able to make President Bush get on a plane and actually “Go help” (or at least look like he was helping) the Black people of New Orleans.
Even though FEMA dropped the ball and many Black folk remain displaced even 10 years later, it is ONLY because of Kanye that it is even in the public conversation.
The natives of HipHoplandia have always been a restless bunch. From “Fight The Power” to “Fuck Da Police” to George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People”, the native sons and daughters of Hip Hop are the ones who will eventually determine the landscape of how the WORLD thinks and responds. Watch.
