The MilitantNegro™ SoapBox: Dumbfuckery; The NFL & Roger Goodell Are Under Investigation.





I told myself I was finished writing about Ray & Janey Rice. Watching Deion Sanders talk down and bad about Ray Rice almost made me laugh but instead I decided to write this post.


The new bandwagon everybody is now leaping onto is this investigation into NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and whether Goodell should resign his position as NFL commissioner. My questions is this…why should NFL commissioner Goodell do a damn thing? Who did Goodell punch? Whom did Roger Goodell assault?


Was NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in the elevator? Did Goodell drag Janey Rice from that elevator? Did I miss Goodell punching Ms. Rice?


Many disagree with this statement I’m about to make but it’s a fact…..Ray Rice was indicted on March 27th. Ray Rice and Janey Palmer were married on March 28th. Now if they moved on and past Ray knocking her the fuck out in that elevator, and the assault charges were dropped…..and Ray lost his NFL football job and has since been suspended indefinitely….what would YOU like to have happen to Ray, his wife Janey and their daughter?




Here’s the thing folks…you can’t take out all your anger, hatred and emotion at all the domestic violence that this planet contains, on Ray & Janey Rice. Which is exactly what the majority of humanity is doing right now. Ray has been punished to the 9th degree for his punching out his fiancée, double punished in fact. Ray lost two games from the NFL upon his being charged with aggravated assault. Then with the release of the actual punching video, he was fired from the Ravens of Baltimore and suspended indefinitely from all NFL activity.


In contrast, and just ponder this for a moment, George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin as did Darren Wilson kill Michael Brown, and neither man has suffered the attention nor anger that Ray Rice is now suffering. Neither man who killed Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown have ever had an investigation screamed for in the manner people are demanding an investigation into NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.


Miriam Carey, remember her, the young Black woman gunned down in Washington, D.C. by Capital Hill police, with her baby in the backseat, for ramming her car into a White House barrier….remember the screaming for an investigation into her senseless murder? No you don’t remember that because there was no demand for an investigation. NOBODY screamed for Miriam Carey.


Need I bring up the brutal beating of 51-year-old Marlene Mardella Pinnock,, by California Highway Patrolman Daniel L. Andrew, who is now on desk duty (administrative leave with pay)? If you think a single punch to the face of Janey Rice is reason to demand an investigation into NFL commissioner Goodell, who was NOT present during that domestic violence…what say YOU about this…..






How many of you screaming for an investigation into the NFL and NFL commissioner Goodell actually demanded the California Highway Patrol commander resign HIS job?


I am muthafuckin sick of real serious violence being ignored when it comes to the average American citizen, but everybody and his/her momma is calling for the lynching of Ray Rice and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL nor Roger Goodell are required by law or morality to do a damn thing about Ray & Janey Rice airing their nasty dirty personal laundry in a public casino elevator.


The NFL handed down what they considered to be proper punishment before this latest video mysteriously appeared. AFTER the new video was made public, Ray Rice received double jeopardy and was fired from his employment, and suspended from the NFL indefinitely


He was sentenced to community service, anger management and domestic violence intervention. Kindly explain what else you folks would have happen to Ray & Janey Rice and their daughter.


I do not know the Rice family. I do wish them the best of luck and my blessings to get their family life and their marriage in order and have the best of luck here forward.

Rice headed a delegation of top administration officials to Israel where she held productive bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Peres and National Security Advisor Yossi Cohen, and participated in the U.S.-Israel Consultative Group meetings. The intensive and highly constructive meetings covered a range of bilateral and regional security issues. Ambassador Rice said after a tour of the Arrow 3 missile defense facility at Palmachim Air Force Base: “Visiting this base it’s clear that the strength and depth of the security cooperation between Israel and the United States has never been greater. … There can be no doubt whatsoever: America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering and ironclad. … Every American dollar spent on Israel’s security is an investment in protecting the many interests that our nations share. … Thank you all for your service and for your friendship with the American people.”

Good morning everyone, it’s really wonderful to be back in Israel, and I want to start by congratulating the people of Israel on your celebration of 66 years of independence this week.  I met with President Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu on my visit over the last couple of days, and I had a chance to convey President Obama’s warmest wishes as well.


I want to begin by saying to Yossi and General Shohat, as you know I just had the opportunity to take a tour and see the outstanding work you’re doing to keep the Israeli people secure.  Visiting this base, it’s clear that the strength and depth of the security cooperation between Israel and the United States has never been greater.  Indeed under President Obama’s leadership, we’ve taken our security cooperation to unprecedented levels.


Just two months ago, our governments signed an agreement, under which nearly half a billion dollars from the United States will be invested in the Iron Dome system.  That will take our total investment in Iron Dome, which has saved countless Israeli lives, to nearly $900 million – a sign of our continued commitment to Israel’s security.  We’re going to fund additional batteries that will protect more Israeli communities, military bases, and critical infrastructure from rocket and mortar attacks.  And that’s why, here at Palmachim Air Force Base, where brave Israeli men and women in uniform operate cutting edge American and Israeli technology, there can be no doubt whatsoever:  America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering and ironclad.


Together, we’ve made enormous progress in our missile defense technology, including in the Arrow 3 and David’s Sling programs.  But obviously, our work is not done.  We will continue our joint research, our joint investment and our joint training.  We remain deeply committed to Israel’s qualitative military edge, and this impressive facility and all the work being done here is a wonderful example of that enduring partnership.


The American people care deeply about the people of Israel.  We admire your commitment to advancing the values of a free and open society, while facing the uncertainties of living in a very challenging neighborhood.  Our two nations are forever bound by our shared history and our shared values, and every American dollar spent on Israel’s security is an investment in protecting the many interests that our nations share—whether that’s preventing rockets from terrorizing the Israeli people, defending against the growing ballistic missile threat in the region, or advancing our commitment to defend freedom and democracy.


Thank you all for your service and for your friendship with the American people.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice, MIGHT, Gets A Promotion And TeaTardedRepubs Have A Stroke!


By Jueseppi B.


UN Ambassador Susan Rice Briefs The Press On The UN General Assembly

Insiders with ties to the Obama administration tell The Cable that U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has become the heir apparent to National Security Advisor Tom Donilon — a post at the epicenter of foreign-policy decision making and arguably more influential than secretary of state, a job for which she withdrew her candidacy last fall amid severe political pressure.



Report: Susan Rice Likely To Be TappedFor Promotion




Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is likely to be tapped as the next National Security Advisor, according to a report in Foreign Policy.


The report quotes a pair of sources who said that Rice will inevitably succeed current National Security Advisor Tom Donilon whenever he leaves the post.


“It’s definitely happening,” one source said.


Rice was thought to be the favorite to succeed Hillary Clinton at the State Department, but her would-be nomination never got off the ground ostensibly due to Republican criticism over her appearances on Sunday talk shows following the attack in Benghazi, Libya.









Will Benghazi furor keep Susan Rice out of the White House?


Posted By John Hudson for Foreign Policy


“It’s definitely happening,” a source who recently spoke with Rice told The Cable. “She is sure she is coming and so too her husband and closest friends.”


“Susan is a very likely candidate to replace him whenever he would choose to leave,” agreed Dennis Ross, a former special assistant to President Obama and counselor at the Washington Institute. “She is close to the president, has the credentials, and has a breadth of experience.”


Both sources said the timing of succession was uncertain. “I don’t believe Tom Donilon is about to leave but would be surprised if he were to remain for the whole second term,” Ross said. “But in answer to your question, [Rice’s appointment] is very logical.”


Rice’s candidacy for secretary of state imploded in November after she recited talking points about the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi on five Sunday talk shows that turned out to be erroneous.


The question now is whether Benghazi’s return to the spotlight will affect her potential appointment at a time when the White House is reeling from revelations about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups and the Justice Department’s subpoena of the calling records of AP journalists.


For now, prominent Republicans don’t seem inclined to make a fuss.


In November, Arizona Sen. John McCain pledged to “do everything in my power to block her from becoming secretary of state”; South Carolina Sen.Lindsey Graham said, “I don’t think she deserves to be promoted”; and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker said she’d make a better DNC chair: “I think most of us want someone who is more independent minded.”


But now — even as Benghazi fever reaches a crescendo following last week’s dramatic “whistleblower” hearing and Wednesday’s release of 100 pages of Benghazi emails — the GOP’s desire to check her rise has seemingly evaporated, and Republicans have few tools to prevent her appointment, which would not require Senate confirmation.


When asked if he was concerned about a future National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Corker, the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told The Cable he was sitting this one out.


“In the case of national security advisor,” he said, “whomever serves in that position serves at the pleasure of the president. So it’s totally his prerogative.” When The Cable asked Graham and McCain the same question, their spokesmen declined to comment.


In some ways, the deflated interest in Rice is only natural. Though the testimony of State Department witnesses last week served to highlight the inaccuracy of Rice’s talk-show appearances, new details of the editing process of her talking points show her nowhere near the drafting process — just as the administration has long maintained.


Meanwhile, a more tantalizing GOP target has emerged in the form of Hillary Clinton, the overwhelming favorite to assume the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. Democrats, Republicans and witnesses fixated on Clinton 32 times during discussions in last week’s hearing.


Rice spokeswoman Erin Pelton declined to comment for this article. White House National Security Council Spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said, “We don’t have any personnel announcements to make at this time, and Mr. Donilon has no plans to depart at this point.” She added that Donilon is “fully engaged in managing our national security agenda, from his recent trip to Moscow and major address on global energy, to planning for a trip to China in late May and more upcoming speaking events.”


The administration hasn’t shied away from heaping praise on Rice. Last week, at a gala for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Vice President Joe Biden told the audience that the U.N. ambassador has “the absolute, total, complete confidence of the president,” and that when she speaks on issues of foreign policy, nobody doubts she’s speaking for Obama.


Back in March, when colleague Colum Lynch first reported whispers of Rice’s comeback, Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, spoke glowingly of Rice’s relationship with the president. “Susan always maintains close relations with the president and his national security team, and that continues to be the case,” he said. “If anything, the way she handled the Benghazi situation — and then the withdrawal — only enhanced her relations here, because she did so with grace and good humor.”


The president himself has gone out of his way to wink at an expanded role for Rice within his administration. “I have every confidence that Susan has limitless capability to serve our country now and in the years to come, and know that I will continue to rely on her as an advisor and friend,” Obama said in a December statement.


Thank you John Hudson & Foreign Policy.














I make no excuses or apologies for these gratification photos…..Ambassador Rice is fabulous.
