If there are any current slaves held by the U.S. Government or members of Congress or if there is anyone living in the United States that was brought here as a slave during his or her lifetime, those people MAY be entitled to something from you the taxpayers.
BUT, if there is no one fitting that category then there is NOTHING OWED. What happened in the U.S. prior to 1865 is not the responsibility of the citizens residing here now. And, considering that approximately 32 percent of the citizens of the U.S. are black or Hispanic, who would be collecting from whom?
Furthermore, think back to the history of that period. The slave traders would go to Africa and buy people that were already enslaved in Africa and bring them to the U.S. Yes, some were mistreated, but many more were well taken care of, especially when you consider the life they were rescued from. Enslavement of one human being by another is wrong, TOTALLY WRONG. It was never right, but it is history.
And, IF, think about this, IF the slave traders had not gone to Africa and bought slaves and brought them to America, all of those people transported here AND their descendants would still be slaves in Africa. And, it’s not just a black issue, those white children from Europe sold into slavery as indentured servants would still be in Europe. They, nor their ancestors and descendants, would have become freemen in America and would not have the lives and opportunities they have built today. That doesn’t make what happened right, but the people, black, white, Hispanic, Asian etc. living in the U.S. today do not owe anything to anyone. Our heritage is our heritage and you cannot and should not be held responsible for the sins of your parents.
If the politicians trying to make this a campaign issue would spend half of their time, energy and money on issues that are important today, our Country would be a better place. Instead those choosing to bring reparations back into the forefront, candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, are determined to keep race relations boiling because they think it will produce votes for them. Think twice before you vote for someone so divisive.
Headline: “Smart Regions Bypass Elected Officials To Implement Regional Governance.”
While we fretted over Judge Kavanaugh, the Michael hurricane and such, the inexorable march
of the New World Order presses on. If this headline didn’t alarm you, read their plan: “A new
and purely Technocrat invention to impose unelected regionalism that will soon sweep
the nation, if it’s not stopped.
Phoenix, Az., is the pilot model with over 30 cities and 4.7 million citizens. Three non-
governmental organizations are simply rising up as a coalition to dominate the entire region, set
policies and implement plans relating to Smart City technology. This is all BS. There is no public
mandate or authority for these actions.” It’s all the UN’s Agenda 21 in operation and it should not
come a surprise because its been thrown out there. for all to read. Reading is over. Political
action is now needed to protect our Constitutional freedoms.
The Phoenix Arizona public-private partnership scheme includes the Arizona State University
Center for Smart Cities and Regions (CSCR). The Arizona Institute for Digital Progress (IDP) a
university with no public status at all, is a private group, and the Greater Phoenix Economic
Council, also a non elected, exists only as a Public-Private Partnership scheme.
ASU will serve as the research and testbed role for the Phoenix Smart Region Initiative, drawing
upon the university’s leftist intellectual talent, to craft a “smart cities digital road map” by the end
of October, 2018. This collaboration strengthens the relationships between our duly elected
policymakers, and non elected schemers dedicated to growing innovation in the region.
“Funding will come from public, city and industry membership, as well as from the Arizona State
University. IDP and ASU will manage the civic and public engagement while the Greater
Phoenix Economic Council will focus on industry engagement.
Make no mistake, this is the UN Agenda 21 coming to life. These schemes will theoretically
make it appear Constitutional so, as affected citizens, all we can do is scream at our local
elected representatives and they’ll simply say we voted for our leaders by honest elections.
Resistant local governments at every level, will be suborned, bribed, and/or threatened to come
on board as important elected representatives, to contribute our tax money to support these UN
New World Order initiatives. According to the report, management will be provided by unelected
people in the ASU, those same institutions that produce the “snowflakes, AntiFa’s, the
demented pink hatted women and the SJW’s that attack us constantly.
When I hear that word “Coalition”, I think of communist schemes. Words like diversity,
multiculturalism, inclusion and “coalition” sparks a sense of danger in my mind. If ideas like
these take hold, they will be near impossible to eradicate.
The Russians tried it, the Cuban’s tried it, Cambodians tried it, Venezuela is trying it and even
China uses it. China, so far successful, is an Orwellian electronic spy state of people control.
America simply can’t become like that but that’s the only way the One World Government
scheme can succeed, unelected bureaucrats daily controlling how we live. Consider the political
and economic mess in the European Union, a prime example of a failed New World Order
scheme. It’s starting here, in America, in Phoenix, Arizona.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (14Oct18)
The Murphy Lady Bulldogs can play, folks. They opened the Battle of the States tournament at Towns County High School against a quality opponent, the Lumpkin County Lady Indians. Lumpkin (4-4, 1-1) was coming off a big 51-24 win at home against Mt Zion, after a tough 2-pt loss at Gilmer. Lumpkin’s biggest win of the season so far was against region rival Dawson County (46-39). The fact of the matter is – Lumpkin County is no push-over.
All that being said, Murphy’s varsity girls (6-1, 1-0) may carry the most talented roster TeamFYNSports has seen step onto a basketball court.
Nine different Lady Dawgs scored in the game, as Murphy head coach Ray Gutierrez worked to spread the playing time among his elite corps of hoopsters. Murphy senior Jessica Beckner was easily the TeamFYNSports player of the game, as she scored 24 points with 9 field goals and she went 6-of-7 from the free throw line.
Junior Ellie Martin, one of three Lady Dawgs to hit shots from beyond the perimeter, was the second-leading scorer with 12 points, two of her baskets coming from outside the arch.
Juniors Aubrey Clapsaddle and Bri Moore each scored 8 points in the game, followed by sophomore Sydni Addison and senior Hailey Thompson with 7 points each. Freshman Kaiya Pickens scored 6 points in the game. Senior Brittin Johnson and freshman Sarah Pulliam each scored 2 points for Murphy, respectively.
The first quarter was all Murphy – scoring 21 points and holding Lumpkin to only two points of offense, both points coming by way of free throws made by Raven Chester of the Lady Indians. With a 21-2 first quarter, most expected this game to be over before it even began.
However, the Lady Indians’ offense came alive in the 2nd quarter, ignited behind the effort by Karlee Armstrong, who hit two 3’s and a field goal to put up 8 of Lumpkin’s 18 points. Makenzie Caldwell hit a three-pointer and Clara White put up six points in the effort as Lumpkin fought to challenge Murphy’s dominant start.
Murphy’s offense was as consistent and accurate in the 2nd as it was in the 1st quarter, despite the offensive push-back by Lumpkin County. The Lady Dawgs put up 21 points (again) and led 42-20 going into the locker room at halftime.
Throughout the second half, both teams saw surges in which Murphy would increase their lead, followed by Lumpkin patiently chopping away at it. Ultimately, the margin would prove too great for the Lady Indians to overcome.
Murphy won the game by a final score of 76-55, advancing to face Union County in the second round, Thursday afternoon. Lumpkin’s varsity girls moved to the other side of the bracket, facing Darlington (GA) Thursday morning.
