Only Certain Black Lives Matter: The Detroit Shootings of Hakim Littleton & Kelvin Wheeler

Randy Wimbley with Sam Riddle, who ran out the house
to greet the protesters in his NAN muscle shirt.
First, this happened...
Then, this happened...
But, then, this happened...


I did not find any other media outlet, except for Buzzfeed, nor did I find any Detroit Black Lives Matter protest groups raise one eyebrow with a shooting which happened down the street, but I did come across this.

Michigan Land Use Institute
Just as pianists must play their instrument’s black and white keys to make great music, so must America draw on her black and white citizens to make a great country. That is why the partnership between the Detroit Branch NAACP and the Michigan Land Use Institute is music to the ears of those who believe in reaching across racial, cultural, and geographic boundaries. And that is why our shared vision must resonate throughout Michigan, from its great southern cities to its splendid northern forests.

Heaster Wheeler
Hester Wheeler
Our hopeful partnership aims to replace the unfortunate dearth of urban voices addressing land use issues with a new song that unifies city and countryside in ways that, even very recently, few would have thought possible. Without it, there will be little progress in urban revitalization or land preservation.

Living for the City is a vital first step. Focusing on Detroit, we are addressing three issues crucial to its long-delayed renaissance: Public transit, affordable housing, and race relations.  
Public transit’s goals: Accessible, reliable, convenient, and affordable.
Detroit once operated the nation’s largest municipally owned transit system. Fifty years ago, that system annually carried 492 million riders; the Woodward Avenue trolleys rarely required more than a five-minute wait. Today, Detroit’s transit system is an embarrassment and a trial for those who use it. Yet one-third of Detroit residents have no car; for them, getting to work can be a nightmare. They are constantly at risk of losing their jobs because the buses often make them late for work. Dependable public transportation is a basic necessity that Detroit simply must regain.

Seoul City Mayor Park Won-soon Is Extracted From His Public Private Partnership With Duke University Carmichael Roberts For Gerrymandering Just Like They Did In Detroit


I just do not understand why this reminds me of Mike Duggan and what he did to Detroit, which was supposed to be a Smart City.

It seems Park Won-soon entered, on behalf of the City of Seoul, into a Public Private Partnership with Carmichael Roberts, just like Duggan did with the Detroit Land Bank Authority.

I wonder if Carmichael and Park had any Detroit Land Bank Authority investment properties in their portfolio.

We should as Carmichael because Park has been extracted from humanity.

Park Won-soon is the Mayor of Seoul, Korea. Park was born in a village in Changnyeong, South Gyeongsang Province, South Korea, on March 26, 1956. He graduated from Kyunggi High School in 1974 and entered Seoul National University in 1975. Shortly after entering university, he was arrested for participating in a student rally against the militant dictatorship of President Park Chung Hee and imprisoned for 4 months and expelled from university. Later, he entered Dankook University and earned a bachelor’s degree in history.

Park passed the state bar examinations in 1980, and worked as a public prosecutor in the Daegu District Court in Gyeongsang Province from 1982 to 1983. Returning to Seoul from Daegu, he launched into private law practice. He worked as a human rights lawyer and defended many political activists in the 1980s and 1990s.

In 1991, Park traveled with his family to London and earned a diploma in international law at the London School of Economics and Political Science in the University of London in 1992. In 1993, he went to the US to take up a position as visiting research fellow in the Human Rights Program of the School of Law in Harvard University.

Back in South Korea, in 1994, Park founded the People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy, a non-profit, non-partisan civic organization formed with the purpose of promoting participatory democracy and securing human rights in South Korea.

In 2000, Park founded the Beautiful Foundation, with the aim of promoting a culture of philanthropy in South Korea. And in 2002, he founded the Beautiful Store, a second-hand store aiming to spread the culture of giving and sharing with others.

In 2006, Park founded the Hope Institute, a think-tank with the goal of applying policy alternatives based on the ideas of ordinary citizens.

Park was elected as Mayor of Seoul, South Korea on October 26, 2011. He was elected as an independent candidate, with the support of the Democratic Party and the Democratic Labor Party. He joined the Democratic United Party on February 23, 2012.

In the June 4 local elections in 2014, Park ran for Mayor again, and was re-elected. His new four-year term officially began on July 1, 2014.

Mayor of Seoul, Korea found dead

Park Won-soon
Longtime Seoul City Mayor Park Won-soon was found dead, police said on Friday, after his daughter reported him missing saying he had left a message “like a will.”

After a search involving hundreds of police, the mayor’s body was found at Mt Bugak in northern Seoul around midnight, near where his phone signal had last been detected, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said.

It did not give a cause of death. Police official Choi Ik-soo told reporters at a televised briefing at the scene there was no sign of foul play although a detailed investigation would be needed.

The Yonhap news agency said a former secretary of Park had filed a complaint on Wednesday over alleged incidents of sexual harassment.

Choi said an investigation was under way after a criminal complaint had been lodged against Park, without elaborating.

Park’s daughter reported him missing at 5:17 p.m. (0817 GMT) and said his phone was off and that he had left a message “like a will,” Yonhap reported.

As mayor of the city of nearly 10 million people, Park was one of South Korea’s most influential politicians and played a high-profile role in its response to the coronavirus pandemic.

He was seen as a potential presidential hopeful for the liberals in the 2022 presidential elections.

The discovery of his body followed a hours-long night search in one of the most mountainous and scenic parts of Seoul just a few minutes from the heart of the metropolitan capital, involving hundreds of police using drones and dogs.

Park left the mayor’s official residence at around 10:40 a.m. (0140 GMT) on Thursday, wearing a black hat and a backpack, having canceled policy meetings scheduled for the day, according to multiple local reports.

Formerly a prominent human rights activist and lawyer, Park had been the mayor of Seoul since 2011, pursuing a slew of policies promoting gender equality.

As a lawyer in the 1990s, he won one of South Korea’s earliest cases on sexual harassment, and strongly advocated for the cause of “comfort women,” those who were forced to work in Japan’s wartime military brothels before and during World War Two, when Japan occupied Korea.

Park also praised women for their courage after a series of women accused powerful politicians and policymakers of sexual wrongdoings amid the #MeToo movement in 2018.

“The resolve of individual heroines is not enough. I think we need social solidarity,” he said, calling for support for the movement.

He also played a vocal role in the massive candlelight demonstrations that helped lead to the ousting of former President Park Geun-hye in 2017.

A Special Message To The FBI - My Cyber Perp Walk Better Be Glorious

Documenting for the record.

I assist a severely mentally ill older male who was contacted via email to apply for a loan for his Michigan August 2020 peacefest business that he has not filed any paperwork for an LLC, INC, NGO or even has a name for his grandiose multimillion dollar operation of whatever he has conjured up in his very special world, with his friends John Lennon and Thomas Jefferson, tow very close friends he talks to on a regular basis.

Yes, Michigan is still socially shuttered, but he and friends, John and Tom, are unable to grasp this concept.

So, he lets me know, all of this today, as I type, out of excitement to finally prove me wrong, because I am always spot on predicting the outcome of all his previous business ventures, he sends me a pic of the check, which arrived FedEx, this afternoon, for $1,000 more than what he originally requested, just because, I guess, he is such a great business leader, or something.

The amount is $3,920.00.

The name of the lender..... First Tech Federal Credit Union.

https://www.firsttechfed.com/

He is not, nor ever has been a federal employee.

It seems this federal credit union got his contact information off an old Craig's List add from a few years ago.

He has no State of Michigan identification because it expired many years ago as he has a strong aversion to soap and water.

I am not able to call and curse him out so as not to cash the check because the phone signal is down.

Once he cashes the check, they will have access to his account, which will lead them right back to me.

This is the work of Cynthia Martin and her rogue ass crew trying to set me up for some kind of criminal action.

Watch, I am going to be arrested for some dumb crap, and it better be dramatic.

Mark my words, I want a glorious spectacle of a cyber perp walk.

Perhaps, these people were trying to find a way of depositing my back pay they stole from me, but, hey, what do I know?

I will post copy of the check once the internet is back on track.

Freedom Caucus Holds Child Welfare Fraud Cover Up Press Conference

The Members of the Freedom Caucus rally around the podium to preach fire and brimstone if the schools do not open this year.

They want that money, badly, because they already spent it, and it was not on the students.

What is really going on is that their nasty privateering Title I & XIX UCC foreign Social Impact Bond schemes are going to crash, and crash hard on Wall Street.

But, what is truly going on is that the schools suck.

I listen to them lie about special needs children, who should not be labeled just because they learn in their own way.

There are horrors cloaked in these private schools.

The schools are filled to the brim with fake ass foreign indoctrination crap, because the schools are micro petri dishes when it comes to those wonderful socioeconomic longitudinal cohort experiments simple because you have a large enough national population where you do not have to pool to run that predictive modeling crap on targeted populations of "The Poors" (always said with clinched teeth) to come up with more educational fraud schemes like Child Protective Services.

I heard "The Elected Ones" lie, or rather bear false witness into the public record, over the internet, as a form of wire fraud, grounds to terminate the parental right to keep and bear the arms of the United States.

The schools suck because these people, holding office, under oaths, foreign to the United States, allowed the stealin' of children, land & vote, which is how most of them got into office, through gerrymandering.

Praise the lord, for I saw raw fear, in its purest form.

Butina is still free, you know.

SCOTUS John Roberts Got A Head Boo Boo

So sad because he lied to god and was mean to my Sweetie.

Chief Justice Roberts Was Hospitalized Last Month With a Head Injury

A court spokeswoman said the chief justice had fallen while walking for exercise and blamed dehydration.

WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. sustained a head injury last month that required a night at the hospital, a spokeswoman for the Supreme Court said on Tuesday.

“The chief justice was treated at a local hospital on June 21 for an injury to his forehead sustained in a fall while walking for exercise near his home,” the spokeswoman, Kathleen Arberg, said in a statement.

“The injury required sutures, and out of an abundance of caution, he stayed in the hospital overnight and was discharged the next morning,” Ms. Arberg said. “His doctors ruled out a seizure. They believe the fall was likely due to lightheadedness caused by dehydration.”

The incident was first reported by The Washington Post, which said it had made inquiries after receiving a tip that Chief Justice Roberts had been seen at a Maryland country club bleeding from his head.

Other members of the court, notably Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, have volunteered information about health setbacks requiring hospitalization. Chief Justice Roberts did not disclose his fall until The Post asked.

The chief justice has twice had seizures, in 1993 and 2007, but Ms. Arberg’s statement said his latest fall had not been caused by one.

The last seizure happened at the chief justice’s summer home in Maine. At the time, the court described the episode as a “benign idiopathic seizure,” one that could be a sign of epilepsy. The incident was similar to one he experienced 14 years before, the court’s news release at the time said. Idiopathic means that the cause of the seizure remained unknown.

Chief Justice Roberts is 65 and appeared to be in vigorous good health when the court last heard arguments in March.

The chief justice has been busy, as the court has been working to issue major decisions in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. He has emerged this term as the median justice, casting the decisive votes in all of the court’s closely divided decisions, including ones on L.G.B.T.Q. rights, young immigrants known as Dreamers and abortion.

The court is expected to issue its final five decisions of the term in the coming days. They include cases on whether President Trump can block the release of financial records sought by Congress and by New York prosecutors.

Bankole "Boot Licker" Thompson Needs To Go Back To Africa For His Foreign Invasion Of Detroit, Livonia & His Psychotic Fantasy Of Owning His Very Own Bank

Bankole "The Boot Licker" Thompson has been on a #coloredrevolution tirade as of lately, by promoting his PULSE Institute.

The world is watching.

He likes to call NAACP Wendell "Swindle" Anthony a boot licker because he says the NAACP has done nothing but enrich themselves.

Yes, that is correct.

Bankole is giving his public testimony on the 2016 election fraud by letting the public witness his plans to take over Detroit and Livonia by enriching himself.

HA!

Bankole wants to own a black bank and I bet Maxine Waters will help him do it.

Yippers.

Bankole recently was victorious in his latest op, where I have a sneaky suspicion Reese Everson was a willing consultant in the Right to Literacy case, where, the Pulse Institute is going to get a chuck of the settlement that was supposed to be for Detroit Public Schools students whose needs are to stop public corruption.

The case was a mockery to the entire body of civil rights laws, but, that is not the point.

Bankole refuses to speak upon the Detroit Land Bank Authority because, he knows, when he does, he has to say my name, and he does not want to say my name because he will have to say my Sweetie's name.

Can I get a #MeToo?

Bankole leveraged his entire ethical core, or sold his soul down the river to the Congressional Black Caucus, to get this State of Michigan, backdoor Gretchen Whitmer #coloredrevolution funded  settlement so he can launch his next #coloredrevolution, and, in this situation, it shall be the City of Livonia and its Police Department to throw shade on the fact that this is Mike Duggan's old playground and that Gretch has some serious situations in the very near future.

A sign warning of racial profiling as seen on Telegraph Road in Redford Township just south of Interstate 96.Livonia mayor, police chief react to 'Driving While Black' warning billboard

I used to live in Livonia and learned how to swim as a very young girl at Clarenceville School, so I take this as another personal stab whenever I hear the afrocentristic war drums, knowing very well of the impending, foreign funded #coloredrevolution invasion of a municipality, for the simple fact that Bankole had the audacity to posthumously drop my Sweetie's name when they were all uber mean to my Sweetie, to simply make some money.

That vile creature needs to go back to Africa.

Yes, I am proclaiming that Bankole, and his tribe of "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) are about to topple the City of Livonia in major federal litigation because there are no officers of the darker persuassion.

So, I send this message out to Paul Bernier, City of Livonia Attorney and Police Chief Curtis Caid, as a heads up:

Why not step out there, onto the international stage, and ask Bankole, and his merry band of #coloredrevolution buckaneers, to provide the universally accepted framework in legal and genetic class based animus designation for black people-z, said with a 'z' because it is difficult to understand Bankole's foreign accent in his english, at times.

according to the #coloredrevolution psyop
of The PULSE Institute of Bankole
You should ask Bankole if his #coloredrevolutionary crew uses the brown paper bag test, or do they strictly go on proficiency tests in ebonics.

Seriously, someone should ask Bankole the magic question of how he determines who is eligible to bank at his fantasy black bank.

I mean, will he be using the Peter Griffin color coded race card or will the human asset property management re-segregation categories be based upon arbitrary and capricious decision making on who gets to live in his magical kingdom once he topples the City of Livonia.

I bet they change the name of Livonia to Bankole.

"Hey Mikey! Come out, come out, wherever you are at GO BLUE, Bankole wants to play games with democracy.


Bankole is so very considerate to provide for the public record that propaganda was promoted through our higher institutions of learning, which will then, profess in the community, the policy of which the black peoplez shall be indoctrinated through federal funding.

I do not know whether to call this sedition or treachery.

Gotta spend some time with a few bottles of Merlot to construct this matrix.

Perhaps, Bankole is working with Anthony Borgesi, founder of Black Lives Matter operation is not organic, and highly sophisticated, but, hey, what do I know?

I know Bankole is using the internet to promulgate an insurgency against the City of Livonia.

I also know Bankole is still, at this very moment, plotting and scheming to become a king, because, he has nothing else to live for, for he knows, in some vague shape or form, that we are in Detroit.

Please note that Betsy DeVos, who launched her Privateering career in trafficking tiny humans in Michigan.

Neil Cavuto looked too stunned by Betsy's complete and utter disregard of the lives of the teachers to even ask her about the lives of the children in the wake of Cooties 2.0.

I felt bad for Neil.

I know how it feels when engaging with vile creatures.

They like to smile alot because they are doing the work of the lord.

This fact should be honored in the annals of history.

The Tale Of Macomb County, Jim Fouts & Child Welfare Grifting Network - Featuring Debbie Williams, Steve Neavling, Violet Ikonomova, Bill Hackle, Jack Lessenberry With Special Guest Star, Bill Windsor

It seems Jim Fouts is having relationship issues.

I do not know what it was that made me drop everything I was doing, but I needed to channel my fuchsia spirit.

I recall a series of articles put out by Steve Neavling of Motor City Muckrucker on Fouts and his questionable audio recordings.

I always wondered how he got those recordings.

Perhaps, we may have a person of interest, Amanda Mika.

Now, why would I assert that Amanda may have assisted Steve in securing those questionable audio recordings?

Because we are in Macomb County.

Yes, the same Macomb County where former Sheriff Bill Hackle was prosecuted for rape, in a hotel room, with a lovely young woman, just like Amanda.

The entire situation reminded me of what happened to Jack Lessenberry for the simple fact that his victim of sexual assault was Violet Ikonomova, who works with Charlie LeDuff over at Deadline Detroit, who at one time had taken Steve Neavling under his wing.

So, when I looked into Bill Hackel, I found this delicious blog, that just so happened to have gone into detail about the masonic network in Detroit.

That masonic network is where lots and lots of stealin' the children, land & vote is funneled in Macomb County.

There is a masonic network in Detroit Child Welfare stealin', too.

But, what made me take another substantial pause, in a state of shock, was that, at the end of the blog, on the bottom right of the page, was the illustrious, original godfather of child welfare propaganda grifting, Bill Windsor, who just so happened to have partnered with Debbie Williams.

Yes, the very same Debbie Williams who is partnering with Connie Reguli, and probably the National Action Network and NAACP, to do D.C. in August to interfere in the 2020 election, to march... so they can keep on child welfare grifting...and cover up what they all did to my Sweetie.

Meet Bill Windsor.



This is how they invaded the United States, one foreign grifting op at a time.

Warren council axes Mayor Fouts' longtime aide from budget — he's not happy

Amanda Mika
Amanda Mika, 
administrating stuff in the City of Warren
The battle between Warren Mayor Jim Fouts and the City Council has escalated after the council either wittingly or unwittingly cut the position of the mayor's longtime assistant from the new budget.

The council also took another perceived swipe at Fouts by approving ballot language to reimpose stricter term limits on the mayor's office.

"This is an out-of-control council controlled by outsiders who would like to get control of lucrative contracts and licenses," Fouts said of the budget the council approved June 30, hours before the new fiscal year began July 1. "This is a combination of censorship, retaliation, retribution and basically political terrorism."

Fouts has been battling with the City Council since a newly-elected council took office after the November election. They have sparred on matters involving recreational marijuana, a proposed social media policy for officials, access to city department heads and even the city attorney's job status.

The new budget eliminates one of six positions in the mayor's office, that of executive administrator, which had a salary of $90,857.

Council President Pat Green said the council was merely eliminating what it thought was a long vacant position.

"That position has been open since Lou Schimmel left the city (in 2011) and it's never been filled," he said.

FUN FACT! LOU SCHIMMEL WAS THE FORMER EMERGENCY MANAGER FOR THE CITY OF HAMTRAMCK

Warren mayor Jim Fouts delivers the annual State of the City address at Andiamo in Warren, Wednesday, June 5, 2019.
"Why are you cock blocking?"
But Amanda Mika — who has worked for Fouts for a nearly a decade and whose relationship with the mayor has come under public scrutiny after they were secretly videotaped arm-in-arm on an out-of-town trip together — said that is her position. She told the council so during public comments after the vote at its June 30 online meeting.

She told the Free Press on Monday that she was promoted to the No. 2 spot in the mayor's office earlier this year from her longtime position of executive assistant, which had a budgeted salary of $78,494.

Mika and Fouts said the council not only cut her executive administrator position from the budget, but also her former union position as assistant planner.

Mika's six-month stint as an assistant planner caused a kerfuffle in 2017, when a complaint was filed to look at whether it was a ploy to provide her with lifetime job protection under civil service rules.

Mika returned to her non-civil service job in Fouts' office after the six-month period, putting in enough time to allow her to transfer to a civil service job in the city if Fouts left office. The Warren Civil Service Commission didn't take up the complaint.

"They're clearly targeting me," Mika said of the council's recent budget move. "I think it's political. Obviously, they have an issue with me. ... I'm not happy. I'm offended."

Mika said she's going to continue working "even if it means I'm working for free." She said a few residents have called her, and "I'm right where they need me to be."

Green said the council did not receive information that anyone had been appointed to the long-vacant position.

"And we went back historically," he said, "there's no appointment to that position. We are reasonably assured that has never been filled. And we stand by that information."

Green said all of Mika's emails come out with the title of executive assistant on them, her LinkedIn account says executive assistant and Fouts referred to her as executive assistant during a June 18 budget hearing. Green said nothing about Mika's change in position was sent over to the clerk's office or announced to council.

Green said as part of budget questions to the city controller, he asked for a list of everyone in Fouts' office by name and position, but the controller's office did not respond.

He said Fouts could have provided this information at the June 18 budget hearing, but refused to, "so we're standing by our budget." He said council is asking its legal counsel whether Mika was in the administrator position improperly and what steps can and should be taken.

But Mika and Fouts said the council never afforded Fouts the chance to provide the information about his office at the budget hearing, saying they muted him and hung up on him.

After that, Green said that Fouts just referenced that Mika is the executive assistant and that he thought that she was the executive administrator, "so I just want to make sure that we have the right people in the right, right positions."

Mika said council could have asked human resources for a list of personnel in the mayor's office. Neither she nor Fouts said council made that request of Fouts' office.

Mika said she wants to continue to use the executive assistant title because it's "more relatable." She said all of the positions in Fouts' office are filled, including her old job as executive assistant.

Fouts said he believes the budget will be reconsidered by the council. Councilwoman Angela Rogensues said in a July 2 email to council that she would like her vote reconsidered for the 2020-21 budget.

Fouts said he's planning to have budget meetings with key people on his staff this week to discuss options, including a veto. He said he doesn't want to lay off remaining staff to put Mika into place because "everyone who works for me is valuable."

While Fouts hasn't vetoed the budget, he has vetoed council's approval of a ballot question that would ask voters a yes or no question: Should the office of mayor have the same terms as the other city elected offices, which is the greater of three complete terms or 12 years?

Green said the ballot language has to be approved by the state. If approved, he said the question would be on the November ballot. If approved by voters, he said, it would take effect immediately, but Fouts would serve out the rest of his current fourth four-year term.

"In no way, shape or form is it trying to remove him from office," Green said, adding that council wants all elected officials in the city on the same page with 12 years in office.

Voters in 2016 approved extending the term limit for the office of mayor from three four-year terms in office or 12 years to five four-year terms or 20 years.

Fouts said he hasn't decided whether he would run for a fifth term as mayor and called the council's ballot question vote "a distraction."

"They want to take over the office of the mayor," he said. "They don't think they can beat me in a fair and square election."

Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said:  “As alleged, Ghislaine Maxwell facilitated, aided, and participated in acts of sexual abuse of minors.  Maxwell enticed minor girls, got them to trust her, and then delivered them into the trap that she and Jeffrey Epstein had set. She pretended to be a woman they could trust.  All the while, she was setting them up to be abused sexually by Epstein and, in some cases, Maxwell herself.  Today, after many years, Ghislaine Maxwell finally stands charged for her role in these crimes.”
FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said:  “Preserving the innocence of children is among the most important responsibilities we carry as adults.  Like Epstein, Ms. Maxwell chose to blatantly disregard the law and her responsibility as an adult, using whatever means she had at her disposal to lure vulnerable youth into behavior they should never have been exposed to, creating the potential for lasting harm. We know the quest for justice has been met with great disappointment for the victims, and that reliving these events is traumatic. The example set by the women involved has been a powerful one. They persevered against the rich and connected, and they did so without a badge, a gun, or a subpoena - and they stood together. I have no doubt the bravery exhibited by the women involved here has empowered others to speak up about the crimes of which they've been subjected.”
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said:  “The heinous crimes these charges allege are, and always will be abhorrent for the lasting trauma they inflict on victims. I commend our investigators, and law enforcement partners, for their continuing commitment to bringing justice to the survivors of sexual assault, everywhere.”
If you believe you are a victim of the sexual abuse perpetrated by Jeffrey Epstein, please contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL FBI, and reference this case.
According to the Indictment[1] unsealed today in Manhattan federal court:
From at least 1994 through at least 1997, GHISLAINE MAXWELL assisted, facilitated, and participated in Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Jeffrey Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims known to MAXWELL and Epstein to be under the age of 18.  The victims were as young as 14 years old when they were groomed and abused by MAXWELL and Epstein, both of whom knew that their victims were in fact minors.  As a part and in furtherance of their scheme to abuse minor victims, MAXWELL and Epstein enticed and caused minor victims to travel to Epstein’s residences in different states, which MAXWELL knew and intended would result in their grooming for and subjection to sexual abuse.
As alleged, MAXWELL enticed and groomed minor girls to be abused in multiple ways. For example, MAXWELL attempted to befriend certain victims by asking them about their lives, taking them to the movies or taking them on shopping trips, and encouraging their interactions with Epstein.  MAXWELL also acclimated victims to Epstein’s conduct simply by being present for victim interactions with Epstein, which put victims at ease by providing the assurance and comfort of an adult woman who seemingly approved of Epstein’s behavior.  Additionally, to make victims feel indebted to Epstein, MAXWELL would encourage victims to accept offers of financial assistance from Epstein, including offers to pay for travel or educational expenses.  MAXWELL also normalized and facilitated sexual abuse by discussing sexual topics with victims, encouraging them to massage Epstein, and undressing in front of a victim.
As MAXWELL and Epstein intended, these grooming behaviors left minor victims vulnerable and susceptible to sexual abuse by Epstein.  MAXWELL was then present for certain sexual encounters between minor victims and Epstein, such as interactions where a minor victim was undressed, and ultimately MAXWELL was present for sex acts perpetrated by Epstein on minor victims.  That abuse included sexualized massages during which a minor victim was fully or partially nude, as well as group sexualized massages of Epstein involving a minor victim where MAXWELL was present.
As alleged, minor victims were subjected to sexual abuse that included, among other things, the touching of a victim’s breasts or genitals, placing a sex toy such a vibrator on a victim’s genitals, directing a victim to touch Epstein while he masturbated, and directing a victim to touch Epstein’s genitals.  MAXWELL and Epstein’s victims were groomed or abused at Epstein’s residences in New York, Florida, and New Mexico, as well as MAXWELL’s residence in London, England.
Additionally, in 2016, while testifying under oath in a civil proceeding, MAXWELL repeatedly made false statements, including about certain specific acts and events alleged in the Indictment.
*                      *                      *
GHISLAINE MAXWELL, 58, is charged with one count of enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, one count of conspiracy to entice a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, one count of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, one count of conspiracy to transport a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, and two counts of perjury, each of which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
The statutory maximum penalties are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant would be determined by the judge.
Ms. Strauss praised the outstanding investigative work of the FBI and the NYPD.
This case is being handled by the Office’s Public Corruption Unit.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Alex Rossmiller, Alison Moe, and Maurene Comey are in charge of the prosecution.
The charges contained in the Indictment are merely accusations.  The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.


[1] As the introductory phrase signifies, the entirety of the text of the Indictment, and the description of the Indictment set forth herein, constitute only allegations, and every fact described therein should be treated as an allegation.  The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Georgia Is Busted For Using The Stealin' Children, Land & Vote Transposable Model

Georgia has a long and illustrious history of stealin' the children, land & vote.

Just ask Stacey Abrams.

I looked for the audit, but, believe it or not, I could not find it, or it was not yet posted.

I bet Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and her possible running mate knows a thing or two about campaigning through child welfare.

Anyway, enjoy learning more about those gerrymandering transposable models from Eric Smith.

GBI opens probe of Fulton DA Paul Howard over use of nonprofit funds

The GBI has opened an investigation of Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard and his use of a nonprofit to funnel at least $140,000 in city of Atlanta funds to supplement his salary, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News have learned.

The criminal investigation comes at a time when Howard, Fulton’s DA since 1997, is being challenged in the Democratic primary for reelection and is facing allegations of sexual harassment, which he strongly denies.

In a statement issued Monday, Howard predicted he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.

“This is not the first time what would be considered as an administrative matter for other Georgia elected officials is turned over to the GBI for investigation when it involves the Fulton County district attorney,” he said.

This was in reference to the agency’s 2014 investigation of Howard’s use of money forfeited by criminals to pay for galas and dinners for his staff and their families.In that GBI probe, prompted by media reports, “I was totally exonerated,” Howard said.

As for the ongoing investigation, he said, “(I)f the facts are followed, it is my expectation that the result will be exactly the same.”

Howard said the timing of this investigation, weeks away from the June 9 primary, “is not lost on me.”

Howard is also facing a state ethics complaint for not disclosing he was a chief executive of the nonprofit, People Partnering for Progress, in personal financial statements.

On April 15, the Georgia Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission charged Howard with a dozen disclosure violations, most of them involving PPP.The GBI probe and the ethics complaint followed a report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News about discrepancies between financial disclosures Howard filed with the state and tax filings submitted to the IRS by the nonprofit he heads as CEO.

This week, GBI agents were scheduled to visit Atlanta tax attorney Raymond Carpenter to review PPP’s records, Carpenter said.

For years, Carpenter, a longtime friend of Howard’s, has served as the nonprofit’s chief financial officer.The GBI was asked by the state Attorney General’s Office to conduct the investigation of Howard, agency spokeswoman Nelly Miles said.

“At this point, that’s all we can say.”Katie Byrd, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Chris Carr, confirmed that was the case but declined further comment.Former DeKalb District Attorney Bob Wilson said he finds the investigation troubling.

“When you become the controversy, there’s a problem,” said Wilson, now a private attorney in Decatur. “I think a criminal investigation of a district attorney — that is a very sad state of affairs.”

A criminal probe of the prosecutor who heads Georgia’s largest and busiest district attorney’s office is highly unusual.

But so was Howard’s decision to use PPP as a conduit to pad his salary by at least $170,000 from 2014 through 2017, according to tax records and the nonprofit’s own documents. (Howard’s annual salary, paid by the state and supplemented by the county, is roughly $175,000.)

Howard initially sought an $81,259 salary supplement from the city of Atlanta in a May 2014 letter he sent to then-Mayor Kasim Reed.

At that time, Howard wrote, nine other DAs around the state were earning more than he was.

Howard did not get that annual supplement, but the city did present him with $125,000 checks in each of the next two years.

In a previous statement, Howard said Reed tied the money to Howard’s efforts to address repeat criminal offenders and expand his community prosecutors’ program.

When contacted Monday, Reed said he had no comment.It’s unclear whether the city knew how much of the $250,000 would go to Howard because he paid himself differing amounts from year to year.

In 2015, he took in $50,000, then $20,000 in 2016 and $70,000 in 2017, the nonprofit’s tax filings show.PPP’s most recent tax filing in 2018 did not disclose whether Howard received additional funds.

Nonprofits do not have to provide detailed financial information for a year in which they collect less than $50,000 in contributions, which was the case for PPP that year.

On April 13, the AJC and Channel 2 filed an Open Records Act request with the city to determine how the funds were transferred to Howard and for documents relating to it.

But City Hall, shut down because of the pandemic, has yet to produce the records.In a statement issued last month, Howard said he deposited the city’s checks into the nonprofit’s account and then received checks to supplement his salary.

The arrangement is open to question because state law says only counties can supplement a district attorney’s state pay.

In his statement, Howard said he tasked one of his former appellate attorneys to determine whether he could receive supplements from the city.

He also provided a memo in which the attorney said there was no law prohibiting it.

But the July 2014 memo did not address the legality of Howard using a nonprofit to funnel city funds as a way to supplement his salary. PPP’s records say the nonprofit’s mission has been to reduce youth violence.In his prior statement, Howard said the money he received from the city through PPP “represents reasonable compensation.”

He also said that PPP’s involvement, through his supervision, in his office’s community prosecution program has been meaningful and had a positive impact.

Howard has been named in two sexual harassment complaints filed by county employees and another alleging gender discrimination.

During a recent virtual pre-election forum, his two opponents, former Fulton chief deputy DA Fani Willis and Atlanta lawyer Christian Wise Smith, criticized Howard for the harassment allegations.

Wilson, DeKalb’s DA from 1981 to 1992, said he chaired and worked with child advocacy and rape crisis center nonprofits while he was in office.

If a nonprofit can help victims of crime, it’s appropriate for a district attorney to be involved, he said.

 At the same time, he added, “You would not undertake that with any idea of ever being paid.”Wilson said he never asked for a raise while he was district attorney.

“You know what the job is,” he said. “You know what it pays, and if that’s not good enough for you and your family then seek other employment.”

Tales Of The New Crown: How The Schools Plan On Making Money Off Re-opening Schools - Corporate Parental Rights

Tennessee has a child welfare being task force with religious and nonprofit leaders making policy.

Do you see this???

Q: Why are religious and other nonprofits, who are not elected by the people, who take oaths to foreign nations, telling the U.S. how to educate our children? 
A: Because they already have a plan.

My biggest question is how come no one has an issue with unelected persons just arbitrarily making policy?

No one is talking about this.

The charter schools are desperate for that money, so are the states. 

That is why the schools are not reopening. 

The entire K12 system is a fraud scheme to make us dumber, if that is even possible. 

If the charters do not get their fall money, they are going to loose those buildings and default on those Social Impact Bond programs.

Many of these private schools like to contract with themselves, as LLCs, of course, but I just call it double billing.

I have a Maltese K-nig-hit who is really good at that double billing in private school administration.


They are pushing re-segregation language which is an indicator that they are not opening because they are pushing propaganda. 

Will the Detroit schools have water and heat this winter?

I am still waiting for someone to explain to me their absolutely brilliant plan on keeping an autistic child in a face mask.

Better yet, I want to know how young children are expected to learn when they cannot see the facial expressions or the mouth in speaking.

No one brought up oxygen levels and learning, but I guess you do not need proper levels of air when you are being dumbed down, but, I believe that is the plan because they have a warehouse of foreign Social Impact Bond programs to address the mental health and learning disabilities for wearing a mask.

I am waiting for the latest and greatest pharmaceutical to help the children thrive from decreased oxygen level studies.

No one spoke upon the teacher emergency preparedness plan.

Michigan schools expect a booming demand for substitute teachers




How are the kids supposed to eat with masks?

I should not have raised the question of food in schools.

It gives me the Saddy Face.

We need to invest in younger teachers and allow these battle weary instructors to finally sit back and be honored, but we do not like encouraging higher education, due to the financial toll barriers called fake ass student debt.

At least the students of Detroit will have water, that is if there is not another surge of water shutoffs.

Whitmer's school plan: Students and teachers in masks, no visitors, spaced desks, cleaning

Lansing — School life in Michigan — from athletics to riding the bus to wearing masks in classrooms  — will depend on how much or little the COVID-19 virus is raging through regions of the state come the first day of school. 

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer released guidelines Tuesday for how Michigan's K-12 schools should reopen in the fall and said her administration would provide $256 million to help districts implement their local plans.

Depending on the phases of the Michigan Safe Start Plan, the governor's reopening playbook, students and teachers must wear masks most of the time except for eating.

Desks must be spaced six feet apart in classrooms and all arranged facing the same direction toward the front of the classroom. Teachers should maintain six feet of spacing between themselves and students as much as possible.

Visitors — even family members — won't be allowed in schools except in emergencies as decided by administrators....the legal term is in parentis loco, where the schools are the defacto parent, or rather, in the situation of private schools, Corporate Parental Rights, where a foreign entity have the power over the child, not the original parent of legal custody and guardianship.

Cleaning requirements say frequently touched surfaces — including light switches, doors, benches and bathrooms — must undergo cleaning at least every four hours with either an Environmental Protection Agency-approved disinfectant or diluted bleach solution.

Athletics would be allowed but with restrictions. Large indoor spectator events would remain suspended. Large outdoor spectator or stadium events would be limited to 100 people, and people not part of the same household must maintain six feet of distance.

Whitmer's order suggests athletics and extracurricular activities will not be offered in the fall in regions that are in Phase 3 or less of the governor's reopening plan. The executive order said private and public schools must develop reopening plans that "suspend athletics, after-school activities, inter-school activities (e.g., debate competitions) and busing."

Whitmer's latest executive order also requires school districts to adopt a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan to lay out how they will protect students and educators across the various phases of her reopening plan. 

“Our students, parents and educators have made incredible sacrifices during our battle with COVID-19,” the governor said.

“Thanks to our aggressive action against this virus, the teachers who have found creative ways to reach their students, and the heroes on the front lines, I am optimistic that we will return to in-person learning in the fall."

The extra  $256 million for schools appears to stem from a $2.2 billion budget deal reached Monday between the Legislature and the governor. Much of that budget deal includes federal COVID-19 Relief Funds to help schools respond to coronavirus challenges.

Three scenarios outlined
The plan, which was released by Whitmer and her COVID-19 Task Force on Education Return to School Advisory Council, envisions three scenarios for school opening in fall: 

• Schools open for in-person instruction with minimal required safety protocols in Phase 6. Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula are in Phase 5 of her economic reopening plan, allowing for the opening of bars, restaurants and limited capacity in movie theaters and museums. The rest of the state has been in Phase 4, which has allowed limited-capacity dine-in eating and the reopening of bars.

• Schools open for in-person instruction with moderate required safety protocols in Phase 5.

• Schools open for in-person instruction with more stringent required safety protocols in Phase 4.

Public and private schools will not be allowed to reopen for in-person instruction if in phases 1-3, the plan says. In that case, students would be instructed remotely or online. 

During Phase 4, all students grades 6-12 and staff must wear homemade or disposable level-one grade surgical masks. Any student who cannot medically tolerate a facial covering must not wear one....what about psychologically not being able to tolerate a facial covering?

In grades K-5, students must wear a mask unless they remain with their classes throughout the school day and do not come into close contact with students in another class.

All students must wear masks in hallways and common areas in the building except for during meals. Staff also must wear face coverings at all times except for meals. Any staff member who cannot medically tolerate a facial covering doesn't need to wear one.

Masks are expected to be worn by all students, staff and bus drivers during school transportation.

Homemade facial coverings must be washed daily, and disposable facial coverings must be disposed of at the end of each day. 

When considering ways to best mitigate the spread of coronavirus, the task force focused on face masks as the most practical mandate.

There are recommendations regarding six-foot distancing, but the task force understood the constraints on class sizes and public spaces, said Tonya Allen, chairwoman for the Return to Learn Advisory Council and CEO of the Skillman Foundation in Detroit. 

“The mask is the most important way we can prevent the transition of the disease,” she said.

Spacing recommendations
Schools located in regions that are under Phase 4 of Whitmer's economic reopening plan are recommended but not required to space desks six feet apart in classrooms.

“Class sizes should be kept to the level afforded by necessary spacing requirements,” the plan says.

Other recommendations include having teachers keep six feet of space between themselves and students as much as possible and keeping students as far apart as feasible in rooms where large tables are used. Schools also should post signs to indicate proper social distancing.

Busing is allowed under Phase 4 with no guidelines on the number of passengers but everyone must use hand sanitizer before boarding.

The bus driver, staff and students in grades prekindergarten-Grade 12, if medically feasible, must wear facial coverings while on the bus.

Vehicles must be cleaned and disinfected before and after every transit route. Children must not be present when a vehicle is being cleaned. 

Libraries, computer labs, arts and other hands-on classrooms must undergo cleaning after every class period with either an EPA-approved disinfectant or diluted bleach solution in this phase. 

Student desks must be wiped down with an EPA-approved disinfectant or diluted bleach solution after every class period.

'On edge of my seat'
West Bloomfield School Superintendent Gerald Hill said Tuesday the plan provides districts with good guidance "we have been needing for a while."

The governor's plan provides enough details over multiple phases that districts should be able to move forward and back when necessary, Hill said. The funding promised by Whitmer to pay for each district's COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan was welcomed, he said.

"I am happy to hear there is money attached to this," Hill said, "but the devil is in the details and how flexible it will be in terms of spending, the formula for districts and how we get it."

The school plan calls for “required” and “strongly recommended” safety protocols to keep school communities safe based on the status of the coronavirus. The plan also provides recommendations for mental and social-emotional health, instruction and operations depending on which phase of Whitmer's economic reopening plan each region is in.

Parent Lisa Rajt said Tuesday she thinks it will be a challenge for her son, an incoming seventh-grader in Ferndale Schools who is on the austism spectrum, to wear a mask at school. He struggles with sensory issues and becoming overheated, she said.

Rajt noticed the plan said if the state moves to Phase 5, masks in schools will not be required.

"For me, the takeaway from this plan is every person in the state needs to do everything possible so we are in Phase 5 when school starts," she said.

All the cleaning requirements in classrooms, buses and other parts of the schools are likely to be overwhelming for districts, Rajt said.

"People who work in schools are modern everyday heroes. In my district, they always rise to the challenge," she said.

The idea of moving from Phase 4 back to Phase 3 if the number of infections increases concerns Rajt.

"I am going to be on the edge of my seat until the first day of school," she said.

State guidance a good start
Randy Liepa, superintendent of Wayne RESA, and Ken Gutman, superintendent of Walled Lake Consolidated Schools, both say the state's guidance is a good start but uncertainty about future school funding makes it challenging for districts to plan for the new school year, even with the additional money promised by Whitmer.

Districts expect a cut of about $700 per student in state revenue for the 2020-21 year and have asked Congress to intervene.

"It’s the guidance we need. That is what school districts have really been looking for," Liepa said of Whitmer's plan. "At the end of the day, our staff wants to see kids back into school. Although there is no $700 cut this year, we may have it next year ($700-a-pupil reduction), and we still need a stimulus plan."

The governor's plan says districts and schools should plan to review the most current public health data released by the state every week. School officials are expected to hold weekly discussions with local public health officers to understand local public health trends, the number of positive COVID-19 cases, the proportion of positive cases, hospital capacity, testing capacity, whether a case is attributed to a cluster or specific event, and hospital staffing capacity.

"These requirements and recommendations are not always easy, but they are necessary. We must all continue to put safety first, leverage science, data and public health evidence to inform the decisions we make to serve each and every student in Michigan well," the plan says.

Without a plan approved by the local school board, schools across the state will not be able to meet for face-to-face instruction. 

Education leaders urged schools to cooperate with the executive order; activate local leadership for local decision making; find ways to capitalize on state financial resources and policy flexibility; support educators; and engage communities to help reinforce the way forward.

"While many school districts will doubtlessly go beyond the minimum guidelines listed here today, they are an important starting point for all of us," said Michigan Education Association President Paula Herbert.

Local health departments will be working with schools to tailor the executive order to local schools, said Nicki Britten, health officer for the Berrien County Health Department.

"The road map represents the best path forward for schools, given the reality that we face," she said.

The announcement came as a University of Michigan survey found one-third of Michigan parents might not send their children to public school this fall due to COVID-19 concerns.

The online survey, which assessed parental plans for in-person school in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, found health-related concerns were among the most common reasons cited by parents who did not plan to send their child.

The online survey, published Friday by UM's Susan B. Meister Child Health Evaluation and Research Center, queried 1,193 parents of school-aged children in the three states June 12-22.

In Michigan, 66.7% of those surveyed said they likely planned to send their children to school this fall, 12.4% said they likely would not send them and 20% said they were unsure of their plans.

Huntington Woods parent Joyce Krom said Tuesday the guidelines make her feel comfortable to send her daughter to high school in Phases 4 through 6. Krom did wonder how class sizes would be handled if desks had to be moved six feet away.

"At Berkley High School, there are often 30-plus students in a classroom," Krom said. "There is no way to maintain safe distancing at those numbers so additional staff will be required. They will also need to hire more maintenance staff to meet the cleaning protocols. I just don't see how districts will be able to afford those."
