President Obama to Award the Medal of Honor

WASHINGTON, DC – On November 6, 2014, President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to Army First Lieutenant Alonzo H. Cushing for conspicuous gallantry.

 

First Lieutenant Alonzo H. Cushing will receive the Medal of Honor posthumously for his actions while serving as commanding officer of Battery A, 4th United States Artillery, Artillery Brigade, 2nd Corps, Army of the Potomac during combat operations in the vicinity of Cemetery Ridge, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on July 3, 1863.

 

During Longstreet’s Assault, also known as Pickett’s Charge, First Lieutenant Cushing’s battery took a severe pounding by Confederate artillery.  As the Confederate Forces advanced, he manned the only remaining, and serviceable, field piece in his battery.  During the advance, he was wounded in the abdomen as well as in the right shoulder.  Refusing to evacuate to the rear despite his severe wounds, he directed the operation of his lone field piece continuing to fire.  With the Confederate Forces within 100 yards of his position, Cushing was shot and killed during this heroic stand.  His actions made it possible for the Union Army to successfully repulse the assault.

 

First Lieutenant Cushing’s cousins, Frederic Stevens Sater and Frederic Cushing Stevens III, and families will join the President at the White House to commemorate his example of selfless service and sacrifice.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 

THE MEDAL OF HONOR:

 

The Medal of Honor is awarded to members of the Armed Forces who distinguish themselves conspicuously by gallantry above and beyond the call of duty while:

 

  • engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States;
  • engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or
  • serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.

 

The meritorious conduct must involve great personal bravery or self-sacrifice so conspicuous as to clearly distinguish the individual above his or her comrades and must have involved risk of life. There must be incontestable proof of the performance of the meritorious conduct, and each recommendation for the award must be considered on the standard of extraordinary merit.

Reach Higher with the First Lady on Tumblr and IRL

 

We’re excited to announce that on Monday, November 3, First Lady Michelle Obama will take to Tumblr for the first time to answer your questions on education as part of her Reach Higher initiative, which aims to inspire every student to take charge of their future and complete their education past high school.

Getting a higher education has never been more important, because in today’s economy, a high school diploma just isn’t enough. That’s why the First Lady is working to rally the country around President Obama’s “North Star” goal — that by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

If you’ve got questions about preparing for college or how to pay for it, here’s how you can join the conversation:

Learn more about the First Lady’s initiative and how you can reach higher at WhiteHouse.gov/Reach-Higher, and then ask the First Lady a question on Tumblr before her first-ever Tumblr Q&A on Monday, November 3.

Gov. Nixon: Don’t Let Darren Wilson Get Away With Murder. Hold All Officers Fully Accountable In Michael Brown’s Death.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!mrmilitantnegroheader2

Sign the Petition to Governor Nixon: Don’t let Darren Wilson get away with murder; secure justice for Michael Brown

 

It’s been nearly two months since officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old, unarmed Black teenager, Mike Brown — and no one has been held accountable. County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch has done everything in his power to avoid holding Wilson accountable, while state Governor Jay Nixon stands idly by.

 

Without a special prosecutor, the Missouri justice system will fail Mike Brown. Police officer Darren Wilson will most likely not be fully disciplined for this brutal murder and could remain on the police force; a danger to Ferguson residents and a stark reminder that the justice system so rarely protects Black victims. But there is still time to change the story in Ferguson.

 

We need widespread public action to increase pressure on Governor Nixon to appoint a special prosecutor right away.

 

McCulloch could have charged Wilson immediately, but chose to convene a grand jury instead. He then refused to recommend charges to the grand jury, a move that discourages jurors from indicting.1 In 23 years as County Prosecutor, McCulloch has not prosecuted a single police shooting.2 Given this shameful history of denied justice, it’s clear that McCulloch is incapable of securing justice for Mike Brown. The world is watching, and the one person with the power to do something is Governor Nixon, who has a responsibility to the Black voters that supported him. It’s time for him to act.

 

On October 22, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon announced a “Ferguson Commission” tasked with studying the “the conditions underscored by the fallout to Brown’s death.” 3 The commission will be made up of experts appointed by the Governor and will have no legislative power to enforce it’s findings on how to create a safer, more just Ferguson. A commission is not enough. The road to addressing the deep seated racism and police violence targeting Black Missourians begins with the arrest and prosecution of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.With a grand jury announcement expected any day, now is a critical time to increase pressure on Governor Nixon and make it clear that he has an obligation and responsibility to restore integrity to Missouri’s criminal justice system.

 

Join us in demanding that Governor Nixon remove McCulloch from this train wreck of a case, and appoint a special prosecutor to take over.

 

Thanks and peace,

ColorOfChange

BBC Africa: Escaping Boko Haram: How Three Nigeria Girls Found Safety.

Escaping Boko Haram: How three Nigeria girls found safety

 

The story of three Nigerian girls who escaped Boko Haram

For six months the world has waited for news of the fate of more than 200 girls abducted by Nigerian militant group Boko Haram. As the Nigerian government insists a deal to release the “Chibok girls” is being negotiated, three girls who escaped their captors have told their story to BBC Hausa.

Lami, Maria and Hajara were at school in Chibok, north-eastern Nigeria, when they were kidnapped in April. Best friends Lami and Maria escaped by jumping from the back of a truck. Hajara was taken to a camp but later fled with another girl.

 

To protect the girls’ identity we have portrayed their story as an animation, and provided an edited transcript of their account below.

 

The girls’ names have been changed for their protection.

 

Animation by Luis Ruibal.

 

_78544888_de27-4

Lami: It was Monday night. We had exams the following day. Then we started to hear shootings in the town. So we went out. We phoned our parents to tell them what was happening in the town. They told us to run away when we got the chance. We told them that the town was already surrounded so there was no way we could run.

 

Maria: Lami woke me up saying: “Maria didn’t you hear what’s happening? Haven’t you heard sounds of shooting from the town?”

 

I said we should climb the wall and run away. She said: “No. No-one has run away. We should gather in one place and wait to see what’s going to happen.”

 

Other girls said nothing would happen to us. “We’re girls. They don’t do anything to girls. We should wait and see what God would do.”

 

Lami: We were at the school when suddenly three Boko Haram members entered.

 

They said: “If any of you attempt to leave we’ll kill all of you.” When we went out they were everywhere. They gathered us where we have our school assembly. As we were there they kept burning the school. They burnt everything.

_78544890_de27-6

Hajara: They asked us to get out of the gate, saying that when we were out they would let us go back to our homes. They said whoever did not have a headscarf or shoes should go and get them. They then asked us to climb on to a lorry, on top of the food loaded in it. The lorry was so high that we couldn’t easily climb on.

 

Maria: They said to us: “You’re only coming to school for prostitution. Boko (Western education) is haram (forbidden) so what are you doing in school?”

 

We kept quiet. I think there could have been about 100 Boko Haram members – they were all over the school. They outnumbered us. They took us away in their vehicles. We were sitting on oil drums in the vehicle. Our vehicle was really overloaded. We were saying to one another that we should throw away our shoes and scarves so that if our parents came they would know the road we had taken.

_78544882_78543292

Hajara: The vehicle became full before I could get on. There were about 100 of us walking. We stopped at one town and people brought us water. I saw one of those who brought us water changed his clothes and joined the Boko Haram men. They then put us in other vehicles.

 

They put the rest in the boots of cars. Some of the Boko Haram members were so small that if I were to grab their necks I could break them. Some couldn’t even carry their guns properly.

 

Maria: We were wondering where we were being taken to. When we entered the vehicle, Lami said to me: “Shouldn’t we jump out of the vehicle here so that we may possibly escape? There are no other vehicles close by.”

 

Hajara: I thought, it’s preferable to have these people shoot me as I run than have them humiliate me. They kept saying to us: “Make sure you put on your scarves. Make sure you put on your scarves. We’ll shoot any girl we see without a scarf. And any girl who jumps out will die.”

 

I was about to jump out when one girl held me back and said they’d shoot me if I did.

 

“What’s the difference,” I said. “Is it not to the same death we’re going? They should shoot me here and let my corpse be collected.”

 

I was crying and praying until we reached the camp.

_78545562_de27-7 (1)

Lami: There was a lot of dust on the road, they couldn’t see us. When we jumped out, we started to run. We were running without shoes. We found other people. We started to run away from them thinking they were Boko Haram. But they too had run from the town.

 

Hajara: Boko Haram gathered us in a forest around noon. Some of the girls were tired and were lying down. But I couldn’t lie down. The spirit of God was asking me to go. It was telling me: “Get up and go. Get up and go.”

 

So I went. Another girl followed me. When we were going I saw some of them [Boko Haram members] performing ablutions. We stooped as if we were trying to pull out thorns from our shoes, as if we were just going to wee. We’d walk a little then bend down for a little while as if we were looking for something we’d lost.

 

After walking for a while they couldn’t see us properly since it was forest. We then started to run. After we had run for a short distance, we heard them saying “catch those girls.” We kept running. Whether they came after us not, we didn’t know.

 

Hajara: We kept going and our shoes were ripped. We found a house, where a girl could speak Hausa. Her parents gave us a place to sleep. We reached the Chibok area in the morning. A man looking for a relative among the missing girls drove us on motorbike into town.

 

When I saw my elder and younger brothers, I fell to the ground crying. My mother and father were crying and all members of my family cried. Before I reached home it was as if there was a death in the house. Mats were spread. People were consoling my father and mother thinking that I had died.

_78545564_de27-8

Lami: The people we met said: “Your town is far away. You can’t go there now. Come here and wait until morning when we’ll take you into the town to get transport back home.” We stayed there till morning when they asked us to get up so that we go to the town. We couldn’t walk. Our feet were full of thorns.

 

They said: “Let’s go find a vehicle to take you home.”

 

Maria: The men who helped us took us to Chibok, and I cried. It was the second time that something like that had happened to me. My dad was a pastor; Boko Haram went to our house and killed him. They also shot my mum in the stomach; they gave her 2,000 Naira ($12) to have the bullet.

 

Lami: My parents warmed up water and cared for my feet. I was taken to the hospital and it was two weeks before I could stand up.

 

Maria: I continued to live with the thought that Boko Haram members were coming to get me. I couldn’t sleep.

 

Hajara: I was having nightmares every day. There was even a day when I dreamed that they gathered all of us who fled in one place, and said to us: “You girls have defied us and fled. We’re now going to burn you alive.”

 

I haven’t forgotten about the other girls who are still in the hands of those people. I keep praying for them.

 

Lami: God will never make us meet these people again. And for our sisters who are still in the forest, may God help them. And may the whole world cry out for these girls to get out so that we continue with our education in school again.

 

Maria: They should pray to God to forgive them their sins. I’d also ask them to bring back the girls they have kidnapped because their parents are in distress. Some of the parents of the girls have already died. It was the thought of their girls that killed them.

 

Hajara: God will do what he wills, but I don’t want to look at them because of what they have done to my life. They think they’ve ruined me, but God willing, they haven’t ruined me. I’ll continue with my education.

I don’t know her name, because she lives in a remote village in India – or was it Afghanistan? She’s not a politician – nor will she ever be. She does not seek publicity, or wear shoes that cost more than a Bangladeshi worker will earn in 10 years. But hopefully one day she or her daughter will break free from male-dominated society and carve out a living as a small-scale businesswoman.

Ferguson And St. Louis, Missouri Open Carry March: Saturday October 25th, 2014. THIS Is How You Shut THAT Down.

“Open Carry” Marchers Meet Head On With #FergusonOctober Protesters

 

Sometimes things happen and you wonder how much stupidity went into making that thing happen. Yesterday in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as other Missouri locations, open carry morons decided to stage marches to support their non support of a bill that is going to require gun owners who want to open carry to get educated on gun safety, get some gun training and get a permit allowing them to open carry. In their minds all I just mentioned is wrong and a violation of their 2nd amendment rights. Now you might comprehend why I called these nice folks, morons.

A group of ARMED caucasians are allowed to assemble, march and gather in Ferguson, Missouri with police protection and support, complete with smiles…..while starting on August 9th, 2014, peaceful UNARMED Michael Brown protesters have been maced, pepper sprayed, tear gassed and have endured assault rifles, shotguns and sniper rifles being aimed on and at them.

 

 

An Open Carry group marched yesterday day in St. Louis, with the full intention of being given a citation in order to take their case to court, thus ridding the state of any implementation of gun sense laws. The group takes issue with a bill which they feel (but they aren’t sure) suggests that carrying a weapon would require a permit and training and somehow that’s a bad thing.

 

The armed group of Open Carry supporters met head-on with St. Louis protesters and things didn’t work out in their favor.

 

Echoing the die-ins during the Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq, this protester was dead on arrival so to speak, with an Open Carry advocate standing over him.

PoliticusUSA’s Justin Baragona was on the scene Saturday afternoon when a smaller than expected group of open carry enthusiasts descended on downtown St. Louis for a march. Per the group’s leader. Jeffry Smith, the march was supposed to be to raise awareness about Missouri Amendment 5. The law is supposed to strengthen the state’s gun laws. Per Smith’s view, he feels that Missouri’s law can be interpreted in that anyone is allowed to openly carry firearms anywhere in the state, whether or not they have a conceal carry permit. Smith and others that showed up Saturday afternoon wanted to engage people in conversation over Missouri’s law and the 2nd Amendment.

Prior to the march starting, protesters from Ferguson, representatives from Amnesty International and gun control advocates appeared on the scene. Chalk outlines of bodies were drawn on the pavement in front of the open carry group. Other protesters held up signs decrying open carry laws and gun deaths. St. Louis music artist and activist Tef Poe arrived and spoke to the protesters who had gathered. He also sent a tweet pointing out that there were children playing nearby while a group gathered with their guns on full display.

 

The march finally started around 1:30 PM local time, roughly a half-hour after it was supposed to begin. It was apparent at that point that the number of actual open carry supporters was far less than what was initially anticipated. Justin figured that there were about 25 actual marchers. There were far more counter-protesters and media covering the march.

 

The march went from City Garden in downtown St. Louis to the St. Louis Arch. The mostly white gun carriers walked through the streets with nary a worry in the world. A handful of police were on the scene and followed the march. However, there was no confrontation. Also, police were dressed casually and treated the march as no big deal. This is in stark contrast to police reaction to demonstrations in Ferguson and the Shaw neighborhood recently.

Two men are hosting Saturday what they’re calling the St. Louis Open Carry/Firearm Education Walk to the Gateway Arch. According to the event’s Facebook page, the purpose of the walk is “to raise awareness of the right to keep and bear arms under the Federal and Missouri State Constitutions.”

 

 

 

This is what you face if you are NOT lily caucasian when protesting in Missouri………….

 

Hands Up Don’t Shoot – Stand Up For Your Rights

 

 

Rules of the march were few:

SLUNG long guns are welcome *with proper muzzle control*, as are holstered pistols.

This is an educational walk, not a militia gathering, so please leave “Don’t Tread On Me!” flags/clothing, signs, camo, and grungy clothes at home.

Children (unarmed of course) are welcome and encouraged.

Mensaje De La Casa Blanca

 

Published on Oct 25, 2014

En el mensaje de esta semana, Cecilia Muñoz habló sobre las medidas que estamos tomando para responder a los casos del Ébola en el país, mientras trabajamos para contener la epidemia en su origen en África Occidental. Esta semana continuamos centrándonos en la preparación para el hogar, con la creación de nuevas pautas de los Centros De Control de Enfermedad y el anuncio de nuevas para que todos los nuevos viajeros procedentes de los tres países afectados se dirigen hacia uno de los cinco aeropuertos designados para revisiones de control. El Presidente hizo hincapié en que es importante saber los hechos, en lugar del miedo, como los neoyorquinos hicieron ayer, cuando continuaron con su rutina diaria. El Ébola no es una enfermedad fácilmente transmisible, y los Estados Unidos es el líder mundial en la lucha para acabar con esa enfermedad en el África occidental.

obama, don’t touch my girlfriend. mike tells president obama don’t touch my girlfriend as he casts vote, man to barack obama “don’t touch my girlfriend” video. Mike Jones, Cooper’s boyfriend, told President Obama, “don’t touch my girlfriend.” “I said, I know you’re Mr. President, but don’t touch my girlfriend,” Jones said. Yep, Jones teased the president. “I didn’t know what to say. I was just shaking. I said ‘Oh boy, this is the president. What am I supposed to do?” Cooper said. When President Barack Obama voted in Chicago yesterday, he did so next to Aia Cooper, whose boyfriend was careful to make sure the chief executive didn’t get any notions. “Don’t touch my girlfriend,” Mike Jones joked as he walked by. “I really wasn’t planning on it,” Obama said, and then to a clearly mortified Cooper: “Now there’s an example of a brother just embarrassing you for no reason, no reason whatsoever. Now you’re gonna be going back home, talking to your friends saying, ‘I can’t believe Mike — he is such a fool. Fortunately the president was nice about it, so it was all right.’”

 

“He gave me a hug and a kiss, on the cheek,” Cooper later told CNN. “Just the cheek – please, Michelle, don’t come after me – just the cheek!”

As part of the “In Performance at the White House” series and the Joining Forces initiative, the President and First Lady will invite music legends, members of the U.S. military, military veterans, and their families to the White House on Thursday, November 6 for a celebration of the men and women who serve the United States.

 

The program on the South Lawn will have a live audience that will include hundreds of military service members, veterans, and their families. The event will feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Common, John Fogerty, Willie Nelson, Romeo Santos, as well as active duty military members Army SGT. Christiana R. Ball, Marine Corps Capt. Matt Smith and Capt. John Ed Auer, with Don Was as music director. The rock band Daughtry will also perform via satellite from a USO concert at Yokota Air Base in Japan. The President’s remarks will be pooled press and the entire event will be streamed live at WhiteHouse.gov/live starting at 7:25 PM ET. “A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House” will be broadcast Friday, November 7 at 9:00 PM ET on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings), as part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival.

 

In addition to the concert at the White House, there will be a live-viewing by active duty members of the military from the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Footage of their participation will be included in the concert event and the broadcast. The program will also be broadcast on November 11, Veterans Day, via the American Forces Network to American service men and women and civilians at U.S. Department of Defense locations around the world.

 

As with previous White House music events, the First Lady will host a special daytime workshop for students on November 6. The First Lady will welcome high school students from military communities in the greater Washington, Maryland, and Virginia area to take part in an interactive student workshop: “The Stars and Stripes Forever: A History of Music and the Military.” Robert Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles, will give participating students an overview of the origins of music’s place in military life and explore the impact of music in times of war. Featured performers from the evening event will share their experiences as well as answer student questions about the music and entertainment world.

 

The workshop, “The Stars and Stripes Forever: A History of Music and the Military,” will stream live on WhiteHouse.gov/live.

 

“A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House” will be the thirteenth “In Performance at the White House” program during President Barack Obama’s administration. From February 2009 to the most recent broadcast in April 2014, these latest “In Performance at the White House” events have honored the musical genius of Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Carole King; celebrated Hispanic musical heritage during Hispanic Heritage Month; marked Black History Month with events featuring the music of Motown, Memphis Soul, Women of Soul, the Blues, and from the Civil Rights Movement; explored the rich roots of Country music; and spotlighted Broadway and the unique spirit of the American musical. Video from past performances are available at www.whitehouse.gov/performances.

 

In 2011, Mrs. Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch Joining Forces, a nationwide initiative calling all Americans to rally around service members, veterans, and their families and support them through wellness, education, and employment opportunities. Joining Forces works hand in hand with the public and private sector to ensure that service members, veterans, and their families have the tools they need to succeed throughout their lives. More information about Joining Forces is available at www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces.
