Rhia Hardman, whose father and stepmother were both crack addicts, had to survive sometimes as a child without water or electricity. And Rashema Melson, whose family has been homeless for years, experienced times when she didn’t have clean clothes to wear to school.

 

But today, Rhia is a graduate with honors from Virginia State University. And Rashema, who just graduated as the valedictorian of her class, is attending Georgetown University this fall on a full scholarship.

 

And as the First Lady said at last night’s DC College Access Program graduation celebration, Rhia and Rashema aren’t the only ones with similar stories of struggle and success.

 

“So many of you have stories just like these,” Mrs. Obama told the graduates. “Stories of families who couldn’t support you, of communities where you weren’t safe, schools that maybe didn’t always live up to your promise. But ultimately, despite it all, you chose to succeed.”

 

This perseverance, she noted, was what connected all of the DC-CAP graduates — their mindset, their “fierce belief” in their potential, and their “unwavering conviction” that they deserve better from life.

 

Mrs. Obama also explained to the graduates that they are role models for young people across America, saying that if they “can graduate from college despite such overwhelming odds, then there is no reason why every child in this country can’t follow in your footsteps.”

 

The First Lady assured the graduates that they are “going to be just fine” in their next endeavors, reminding them that life is “an endless process of struggle and success,” and that the struggle will make them “stronger and smarter and more resilient.”

The final lesson she shared with the graduates was the importance of investing in themselves, regardless of what’s happening in their lives:

You see, back when I was getting my education and starting my career, my parents were no strangers to struggle.  They were facing health challenges and any number of other problems.  But here is the thing — no matter what was happening at home, whenever I called to see how my parents were doing, I always got the same answer:  Everything is fine, baby, just take care of yourself.

You see, my parents couldn’t offer me a lot in the way of tangible support.  They couldn’t give me advice about what classes to take or what jobs to apply for.  They didn’t have networks.  But what they could do was keep me from getting sucked into their problems.  They knew — amen, and I want the families to hear this as well.  They knew that I had enough stress in my life on my own, and they were determined not to add any more stress from their lives.  And because my parents gave me the space I needed to succeed, I was able to focus on getting good grades and a good job and earning some money.  And before long, I was able to start helping my parents out.  And today, my mother never has to worry about money again because my brother and I can afford to take care of her for the rest of our lives.

“I want you all to know that I’m going to be fighting for you, and I am rooting for you and kids like you across this country,” the First Lady noted. “I will be doing this work not just for the rest of my time as First Lady, but for the rest of my life. Because, graduates, I believe in you. I really do. I’m so proud of you. I am inspired by you. And I can’t wait to see what you all achieve in the years ahead. So go out there and do some great things.”

Now Time For Some Dumbfuckery: Operation American Spring Promises To Drive President Of The United States, Barack Hussein Obama, From Office This Friday.


By Jueseppi B.

000repubs

 

 

This is the funniest shit since that fiasco of truckers planning to bring Washington, D.C. to a complete halt by jamming up the city…wait, maybe this is dumber.

 

The Secret Service, Capitol Hill Police and The Armed Services of The United States Of America...don't have black powder muskets...ya'll gonna need better shit than this.

The Secret Service, Capitol Hill Police and The Armed Services of The United States Of America…don’t have black powder muskets…ya’ll gonna need better shit than this.

 

From The Raw Story….

 

Self-styled revolutionary patriots plan to converge on Washington, D.C., this week to drive President Barack Obama and disloyal lawmakers out of office.

“We are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration,” said retired Army Col. Harry Riley, leader of the Operation American Spring protest group. “They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”

Operation American Spring aims to pressure those lawmakers who remain – or are replaced by officials of their own choosing – “to sponsor and pass very Constitutionally crafted State legislation to dissolve the size, powers, scope and spending of the U.S. Government by 2/3rds.”

 

Operation American Spring ~ May 16th 2014 in Washington DC… JOIN US!!!

 

Published on Jan 25, 2014

JOIN US! Operation American Spring
May 16th 2014, Washington DC

militias, veterans, old, young

Every American that loves
freedom and liberty!

Restoration of
Constitutional government,

“of the people, for the people, by the people”

From despotic and tyrannical
federal leadership

energized to end the tyranny,
lawlessness, and shredding
of the US Constitution

Government is not the target,
it is sound…

Corrupt and criminal
leadership must be removed

Field millions, as many as ten million Patriots

Who will assemble in a
non-violent, physically unarmed
(Spiritually/Constitutionally armed)

the US Constitution

Go full-bore, no looking back,
steadfast in the mission!

We are asking, pleading with you, and any others
that have resources, national voices,
email lists, blogs, FB, Twitter

To call for a non-violent American Spring
May 16 2014 in Washington D.C.

 

 

It’s a slow news Friday and I thought you could use a laugh. This event will be like the Miami Heat playing against the Marlon County JV basketball team.

 

Maybe worse.

 

Operation American Spring

Operation American Spring

 

So do these asswipe Operation American Spring expect the United States Gubmint to just stand by watching the Beverly Hillbillies or The Andy Griffin Show, while they over-run and over-throw the Government? If Operation American Spring wants to turn The United States Of America into the United States Of AmeriKKKa, why don’t they start by taking over Compton. The West, South & East sides of Chicago. How bout visiting the 5th Ward, NOLA.

 

A bit more dumbfuckery…..

 

The activists say they expect 10 million to 30 million like-minded Americans to join them Friday in the nation’s capital for a rally patterned after Occupy Wall Street and “Arab Spring” protests.

 

You can’t get 10 to 30 million Americans to travel to their local voting booth to effect change, but these dumbasses expect 10 to 30 million to travel to Washington, D.C. I do believe this shows exactly how stupid the Operation American Spring morons are.

 

More…..

 

They also plan a sister event the same day in Bunkerville, Nevada, where militia groups have gathered to support scofflaw rancher Cliven Bundy in his dispute with the federal government.

Organizers also anticipate “incremental nullification” by state legislatures of “all withholding taxes, employment taxes, employer taxes, and income taxes.”

“This will effectively DOUBLE the size of ALL American Middle Class family weekly paychecks and cause our local city and town economies to boom,” the group promises on its Facebook page.

Tea Party Nation promoted Operation American Spring last month in an email to its members from founder Judson Phillips, who hinted at a violent response from the federal government, and sent invitations in January to the protest.

“There is no way a militia with small arms can defeat the kind of arms the U.S. government can bring to bear on such a battle, but one has to admire the courage of those people who showed up to confront them,” Phillips said, comparing the protest to the American Revolution. “That’s quintessentially American!”

Operation American Spring spokesman Terry Trussell told the “Patriot Nation” radio program that he feared Obama would order drone strikes on protesters, and host Mark Hoffman suggested participants bring emergency supplies and make other preparations in case of violence.

Riley told Before It’s News that his group does not want violence, but he admits that peaceful solutions have thus far proved ineffective.

“For more than five years, ‘we the people’ have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media, screaming in Town Halls, marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail,” Riley said. “Every branch of government looks at ‘we the people’ whom they have taken an oath to serve, as ‘pests,’ interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agendas. We have no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.”

Previous attempts to drive Obama out of office by shutting down Washington, D.C., with massive protests or by encircling the “beltway” with semi-trucks have drawn far fewer participants than promised.

But Operation American Spring organizers say those ineffective protests helped pave the way for their own success.

“Every political persuasion, rich, poor, every color, all ages, men, women, liberal, conservative, independent, unemployed, et al, are now mobilizing to participate in this peaceful, non-violent, cause in the search for constitutional restoration for America,” Riley said. “We have well over 1 million militia members mobilizing; bikers, truckers, hunters, Tea Party groups — citizens across America. No, I don’t think 10 million (participants) is high at all.”

Or, as a blogger speculated at Before It’s News, the whole operation could be a false flag planted by the Obama administration to launch a civil war.

 

Thank you The Raw Story. I think.

 

Ok, I think I will head on over to D.C. Hang around and see what I can see. After all, the Heat of Miami could lose to The Marlon County JV basketball team…..

 

 

Hey Barack, Operation American Spring is coming for Yo ass....

VIDEO MENSAJE DE LA CASA BLANCA: El Presupuesto del Presidente –Expandiendo la oportunidad para todos

En el mensaje de esta semana, la Directora del Consejo de Política Doméstica de la Casa Blanca Cecilia Muñoz habla sobre el presupuesto del Presidente que ampliará las oportunidades para todos, incluyendo a millones de familias hispanas.

 

 

 

 

In this week’s address, the President highlighted the important differences between the budget he’s put forward — built on opportunity for all — and the budget House Republicans are advocating for, which stacks the deck against the middle class.

While the President is focused on building lasting economic security and ensuring that hardworking Americans have the opportunity to get ahead, Republicans are advancing the same old top-down approach of cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans and slashing important investments in education, infrastructure, and research and development

While Marketplace Enrollment Ended, Medicaid Enrollment Continues

 

 

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has already provided coverage to millions of Americans. More than 7.1 million Americans signed up for coverage through the Marketplaces, 3 million additional young adults were covered under their parents’ insurance and millions more will have access through Medicaid. A new report shows that more people are gaining coverage through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) as a result of the health law. The analysis, produced by the Health and Human Services Department shows enrollment in Medicaid and CHIP in February was at least 3 million people higher than it was, on average, between July and September. That does not include March, which saw an enormous spike in Marketplace enrollment and traffic to HealthCare.gov.

 

While this is great progress, states where governors or legislatures refuse to implement the Medicaid expansion provisions of the law will leave 5.7 million Americans uninsured. States that have expanded Medicaid, such as Kentucky and New York, have seen particularly dramatic declines in their uninsured populations. Just take Kentucky, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Kentucky has seen a 40 percent drop in its rate of uninsured since October 1.

THE CAREY FAMILY REACTS TO THE AUTOPSY REPORT

 

NEW YORK, April 4, 2014 – Yesterday, after six months of “utter” silence by government officials, the Carey Family received the final Autopsy Report for their beloved Miriam Iris Carey. After a careful analysis, the report supports their original hypothesis the shooting of their beloved Miriam was “NOT JUSTIFIED.”

 

Important Facts from the Report

• Miriam was in “good health”
• Miriam was not under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
• Miriam died from multiple gunshot wounds
• Miriam was shot from the back to the front, meaning all shots entering her body were fired while her back was turned, the locations indicate she was moving away from the officers; and
• Miriam sustained one shot to the back of her head

 

“The authorities knew since October 10, 2013, despite popular misinformation, Miriam had no alcohol or other drugs in her system debunking mental illness theory and they also knew since December 5, 2013, Miriam was shot multiple times about her body including her head and back,” says Eric Sanders.

 

With these latest government revelations, the Carey Family is understandably upset.

 

Important Facts About Use of Force Federal Agencies

Metropolitan Police General Order No.: RAR 901.07 Section IV (A)(2) No member of the Metropolitan Police Department shall discharge his/her firearm under the following circumstances… “At or from a moving vehicle unless deadly force is being used against the officer or another person. For purposes of this order, a moving vehicle is not considered deadly force. Members shall, as a rule, avoid tactics that could place them in a position where is vehicle could be used against them. (CALEA 1.3.4)”

 

“It stands to reason using simple logic, if the Metropolitan Police prohibits shooting at moving vehicles, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and United States Capitol Police follows the CALEA standard as well, says Sanders.

 

CALEA is the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. Members organizations includes the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA); and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

 

“We continue to call for the criminal prosecution of all employees involved from the United States Secret Service – Uniform Division and United States Capitol Police, for the United States Department of Justice to prosecute all employees involved for violating the civil rights of our beloved Miriam and for the immediate termination of all employees involved,” says Valarie Carey spokesperson for the Carey Family.

 

Valarie Carey, who is representing the interests of the Carey Family, filed a wrongful death claim on January 30, 2014, against the United States of America, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and the United States Capitol Police seeking$75 million dollars on behalf of The Estate of Miriam Iris Carey, Mother Idella Carey and minor child EF to compensate them for their great loss of a daughter, mother, friend and confidant.

 

“While the criminal probe is pending, the United States Congress using its legislative powers must investigate Miriam’s death. Miriam’s death is symbolic of the growing problem of police using excessive force against the citizenry throughout our nation. With respect to Miriam’s death, it is in the public’s interest to ensure our government acted responsibly not only from a criminal or a civil perspective but from an internal agency perspective. It is also in the public’s interest avoid a similar tragedy in the future,” says Sanders.

The sisters of Miriam Carey say, “It just doesn’t seem real!”

 

Miriam Carey was shot to death on October 4th, 2013 after first trying to ram her car through a White House barricade then leading Capitol police through a high-speed chase. It ended near the Capitol in a hail of bullets.

 

 

Carey’s sisters spoke with reporters in Brooklyn, New York Friday night after returning from Washington following the grim task of identifying their loved one’s body. They said they were “still very confused as to why Miriam is not alive.”

 

They told reporters gathered in front of their Bedford Stuyvesant home the the shooting of their unarmed sister by Capitol police was “unjustified.”

 

The sisters also spoke about being gravely concerned that Carey’s infant daughter was in the back seat during the entire incident. Police say Carey’s daughter was not seriously harmed and was placed in protective custody. Her whereabouts right now, are unknown to the family.

 

Amy Carey-Jones said that she believed her sister was struggling with postpartum depression, but could not explain the depths of her mental condition that could have lead to that fatal confrontation.

 

Federal investigators in Washington told reporters Friday that Miriam Carey had been under the delusion that President Obama was communicating with her and had her home city of Stamford, CT under “lock down.”  But back in Brooklyn Friday night, Carey-Jones said, “We don’t know why Miriam ended up going to DC, we don’t know if her depression contributed to her taking that ride.”

 

As far as the family could determine, Carey has no political agenda that might have prompted the incident.

 

Earlier Friday evening during an interview on CNN, Carey–Jones said, “There wasn’t a pattern [of mental instability]. It was something that occurred suddenly. She seemed overwhelmed. There was a lot of stress.” She challenged earlier reports that her sister showed outward signs of  severe mental stress early on.  “There were not moments of her walking around with delusions. That was not what was going on.”

 

She insisted that her sister was making progress with the help of counseling and medications. ”My sister was experiencing postpartum depression with psychosis, that was her diagnosis. She once had experienced a momentary break down that needed emergency care but got help and dealt with that.  She had challenges as a new parent but we always spoke closely with her as parents and was dealt with it as a family.”

 

In that interview, Carey-Jones said her sister recently told her that her doctors said she did not need medications anymore and, “They tapered her off the medications and she felt fine.”

 

The sisters would not say what medications Miriam Carey was prescribed. The Careys described their sister as a “vibrant” woman who had everything to live for, especially the love she showed toward her infant daughter. They said their sister, a professional dental hygienist, loved her work and wanted to teach, “To further give back to the field,” Carey-Jones said.

 

The family is questioning whether the only way to end the chase was by shooting their unarmed sister to death. One of the sisters, Valarie Carey, is a former New York City police officer. The family said they will conduct their own investigation.

 

“My sister just totally didn’t deserve this,” said Valarie Carey, “There are going to be a lot of different stories being told by people that claim they may know her. They don’t. She was a law-abiding citizen.”

 

In Brooklyn Friday night, Carey-Jones  told reporters, “We believe that law enforcement could have handled things differently.” She went on to  say, “Unfortunately, if someone does have a crisis, a moment of instability, how do people put in place to protect, how do they help you, how can they contain the situation and and give you the help that you deserve?”

 

The family’s position is the fatal shooting of Miriam Carey was “not justified.”

 

 

U.S. Capitol On Lockdown After Reports Of Gun Shots

 

At least a dozen gunshots were fired when she tried to flee cops, who  had trapped her two blocks from the Capitol. She was believed to have been hit several times. Does it really take a dozen gunshots at an un-armed Black woman with a child in the backseat, to stop her car?

There was no weapon in the woman’s car and she carried no ID. ALL This for one un-armed Black mother with her child in the backseat.

Miriam Carey’s Sisters Speak Out And Say “She Wasn’t Crazy Or Stalking Obama”

 

Miriam Carey’s sisters, Amy Carey Jones and Valarie Carey, tell TODAY’s Matt Lauer that their sister was not delusional and never talked critically about President Obama. They believe Miriam was frightened after being surrounded by police near the White House last week and that her speeding off was a way to flee the confusion.

 

WHY was MIRIAM CAREY Chased and EXECUTED by POLICE

 

 

 

 

Published on Jan 9, 2014

On October 3, 2013 Miriam Carey was murdered by police officers and Secret Service in Washington, DC. While being accused of “ramming” a White House gate, the 2010 black Infiniti car Miriam Carey drove did NOT have front end damage nor did the airbags deploy. The most she may have been guilty of was a traffic infraction which is NOT justification for killing her.

 

Miriam Carey was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting AND KILLING. Miriam was not only a productive law abiding citizen, she was a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. A 34 year old mother with great potential and full of life whom her daughter Erica will never get to know personally. There was also another person that is now missing from the scene which we have every reason to believe has been kidnapped and possibly held hostage by U S government forces or even murdered. It was originally reported she was taken into custody.

 

Why this entire incident has happened remains a mystery. Some have suggested that Miriam was trying to contact President Obama to tell him her child was his, and Obama had told her to come to the white house to meet him there. At the time of the incident there was a police drill or exercise going on and many police were present. Possibly a set up to execute Miriam and silence her. It has been reported that the Sisters and family of Miriam are asking for a DNA test to be done to find out the identity of the Father. It is reported that the child was swooped away and is being raised by unknown persons while the Miriam sisters and family are not being offered custody or explanations.

 

Innocent Americans MUST NOT be gunned down by police because they commit a traffic violation or because they are afraid to stop their car while being fired upon by police. Miriam was first fired upon BEFORE ANY CAR CHASE OCCURRED. The actual murder took place after they shot at her for driving 100 feet when asked to stop, no high speed chase had ensued at all. They simply fired at her. If someone was firing weapons at you, would you stop and exist into the gun fire? Would a sane person probably keep driving? It is noted that she drove TOWARD the safety of more police not away! Stand up America. It is Time to Speak up for our rights!

 

 

Police State Conditioning: Miriam Carey DC Unarmed Driver Executed

 

Published on Oct 5, 2013

According to authorities, On Thursday, October 3, 2013, Miriam Carey “rammed” a couple of checkpoints near the White House entrance. She then sped away and was chased by police officers who then shot her dead while her 18 month old daughter was in the vehicle. She was unarmed, yet the Congress and the mainstream media have praised the “heroic” action by police in their killing this erratically-driving mother. This is the definition of police state. Everyone living in so much manufactured fear that they will praise the killing of any “terrorist” that steps out of line in any form or fashion.

 

 

 

I am not a conspiracy theorist by any stretch of any imagination. I am a man who believes in facts & truth. The truth is once the child was removed from the Black Lexus, there was no reason to continue shooting at this vehicle. If a trained law enforcement professional is shooting at a target and NO RETURN FIRE is coming from said target….there IS NO REASON TO CONTINUE FIRING.

 

The facts is There was no weapon in the woman’s car, therefore she could not have returned fire or fired first at Washington D.C. law enforcement.

 

That FACT makes the Death Of Miriam Carey, an EXECUTION.

 

But Ms. Miriam Carey is just another Black human life taken, so what does it really matter. Right.

 

 

What If Miriam Carey Had Been White?

 

I know how Miriam Carey wound up dead. But, would she be dead if she was in a White female body with a neatly dressed White child in the backseat?

 

There is no around-the-clock news coverage of Miriam Carey. Imagine if it was a woman with White skin. We all would become semi-professionals in diagnosing postpartum. But, that’s not happening. The media is treating this story the same way they treat all single Black mother—with steadfast disregard.

 

What If Miriam Carey Had Been White?
