Veterans Still Stranded At Standing Rock Can Get Help Through Woman Vet Bonnie Hoppa
 
North Dakota -- The chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota is asking people camping near the route of the Dakota Access Pipeline to go home, and we believe his wish should be carried out.  Unfortunately, there are still reports of stranded veterans at Standing Rock who are not getting the help promised by Wes Clark Jr. even though $1.5 million dollars have been raised by himself and Michael A Woods Jr. for approximately a month.  Two Go Fund Me pages were set up here and here.
 
Jason Anderson created this live video reporting truths about the stranded veterans in North Dakota and the video continues to be shared on social media.  He wrote in the comments of his video:  "Promises were made to us veterans. Not one was kept. We took care of ourselves and what Natives we could."
 
But veteran Bonnie Hoppa is stepping up to the plate for veterans who are not getting answers from Wes Clark Jr and writes:
 
If you are a Veteran who is stranded in ND, please message me here or email me at DMVSRVeterans@gmail.com. My team has coordinated a place for you to stay.
 
Somos Independents is asking Wes Clark Jr.and Michael A Woods Jr. to ensure "No Man Is Left Behind," and we are disappointed they are planning another mission  without first dealing with the Veterans who are stranded at Standing Rock and giving them the reimbursements they promised. Their first operation was planned poorly leaving many Vets and volunteers stranded, and if they have time to collect monies and ask for donations in another project -- they must first clean up the mess and ensure nobody is stranded that answered the call of duty. 
 
For those who want to donate to Standing Rock cause, please donate directly to the camp where the money goes to the Tribe and Water Protectors for whatever they need.
 
Yesterday Wes Clark Jr. issued an apology, however, until he rights the wrong, other veterans will not accept his apology.
 
Veteran Hoppa writes:
 
So, the expanded version of the screenshot i posted is basically even more dismissive and whiny than what it initially looked like.My assessment that dude was still focused entirely on his own goals and benefit, and indifferent to the needs of others, still stands. He had a happy-woo-spiritual experience, and a ton of media FaceTime, at the expense the well-being of others. Apology not accepted, because you obviously either still don't understand what you did wrong, or you don't care.

Veterans Beware With “Veterans Stand For Standing Rock” Soliciting Funds But Not Reimbursing Vets Volunteering Yet

Veterans Beware With “Veterans Stand For Standing Rock” Soliciting Funds But Not Reimbursing Vets Volunteering Yet
 
North Dakota -- The chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota is asking people camping near the route of the Dakota Access Pipeline to go home, and we believe his wish should be carried out.  Is Wes Clark Jr., doing more harm to veterans than good?  And more harm to the Standing Rock Sioux Nation than good?  The operation at Standing Rock left several Veterans stranded fending on their own.  1.5 million dollars are going to individuals and not a professional organization. 
 
Veterans such as Sean Pearson, Matt Kruse, Jason Anderson are complaining about people’s lives being at risk.  Veterans with medical issues responded to the Call of Duty but were left stranded with poor operation planning. Other vets are complaining  Wes Clark Jr. is putting himself up at the hotel in the Casino while other vets are left to fend for themselves in subzero temperatures.  Veterans who have travelled from across the Nation and Canada have complained about not getting reimbursed for their travels and food despite 1.5 million dollars in contributions collected by Wes Clark Jr.  Two Go Fund Me pages were set up here and here
 
Margarete Engles Reyes, a mid-Atlantic leader for Somos Independents who is on the ground in North Dakota volunteering states:
 
We came to protect the First Nations People and the water protectors. We did not come to deplete their finite resources.  Because Wes Clark Jr. doesn’t know how to put an operation together with appropriate logistics and command structure, this put a strain on the locals who graciously chose to support those who came to support them.   Wes Clark Jr. promised to reimburse veterans once their travel receipts were submitted. Veterans were promised food and billeting however, this did not materialize in many cases and many traveling there were left to fend on their own in subzero weather.  There were no pre-established rosters, no vetting of people’s skill levels or even proof of military service.   
 
For those who want to donate to Standing Rock cause, please donate directly to the camp where the money goes to the Tribe and Water Protectors for whatever they need. 
 
 
“Frankly, you abandoned all the folks at Fort Yates, and haven't responsibly communicated with anyone. You're not the only ones running on no sleep, and a lot of folks had substantially less comfortable accommodations than the hotel rooms you had.

I'm unimpressed. I'll believe y'all when you actually start acting like accountable, responsible leaders, instead of selfish opportunists. No more excuses. No more trying to bury the negative under shiny bullshit and feel-good videos.

At the very best, you have proven yourselves incapable of properly running an operation like this. You failed the people who volunteered to help you. It is beyond irresponsible to ask anyone to trust you on another venture, to start volunteering, and to start donating, when you haven't even begun closing out the current one.”
 
….
 
"Commander"?! You sat in a hotel room and made patronizing videos while my crew sat at Fort Yates with minimal food and NO GUIDANCE FROM YOU.

You lied to the people who signed up to go. You haven't done shit to lead them properly. Oh, and you're STILL RAISING FUNDS FOR AN OP THAT ENDED YESTERDAY.

Your days as a posturing glory hound are at an end. We will not stand for this."

Mexicans, Immigrants, People of Color, Women Must Be the "ADL" on Steriods

POSTED ON
November 15

 

 

Gotta put this up because I'm getting uncomfortable with folks giving bad advice to our gente to "remain calm." No, we do not remain calm. We remain extremely vigilant and sensitive to our surroundings. We can hope for the best, however, we must be prepared for the worst first.

I am comfortable with an organization that is keen on whistle-blowing when it comes to racism and antisemitism. If you experience a hate crime, please fill out this form: https://secure2.convio.net/adl/site/SPageNavigator/Report/Incident.html#.WCtAWiTuOFo

Make no mistake, we already know that Trump hired Steve Bannon who is a well known white nationalist as his chief strategist. Do not remain calm -- be vigilant. Trump is unpredictable and we can't predict shit at this point.

Sign Petition & Write Electors: Support Popular Vote In Favor of Hillary Clinton

POSTED ON
November 15

 

With already 4.3 million signatures, please continue your work in asking electors to support the popular vote in favor of Hillary Clinton.  2 Presidential Electors are asking their colleagues to do the right thing but we need more people to sign this petition or contact the below electors, afterall, it was Trump who also believed the Electoral Vote should be done away with. . Hillary Clinton is on course to receive more votes than any other US presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama – despite losing Tuesday’s election to Donald Trump.

Tell the below list of electors how Republican Presidential - elect Donald Trump has appointed a white nationalist advisor Steve Bannon, and Kris Kobach who on Oct. 25, 2015, was a featured speaker at a “writers' workshop” put on by the white nationalist The Social Contract Press (TSCP), according to a report from the Center for New Community. For an elected official, this is a problem.

 

Letter to Electoral College Electors

Electoral College make Hillary Clinton president on December 19.  The Founders created the Electoral College to balance two important values: the will of the people, and the need for a President who is fit for office.

Denying Mr. Trump the Presidency accomplishes both goals while violating no Constitutional principle.

In Federalist No. 68, Hamilton explains that the "sense of the people", must be expressed in the outcome. But, "Men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice," should make the final decision.

Hamilton pointed out that, "Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honors in a single State; but it will require other talents, and a different kind of merit, to establish him in the esteem and confidence of the whole Union, or of so considerable a portion of it as would be necessary to make him a successful candidate for the distinguished office of President of the United States".

Casting your ballot for Hillary preserves majority rule - the "sense of the people" - and prevents the most unqualified candidate in history from taking office. Never in our Republic's 240 years has our President had no previous experience in an office of public trust, be it elected or appointed, civilian or military. Never has a President admitted to sexual assaults. Never has a President encouraged violence at campaign events.

There is no reason electors cannot vote with their conscience. They  are not taking away the majority vote, and are not violating the Constitution.  Please protect our Constitution and our Republic by casting your ballot for Hillary Clinton.

 

 

Please contact the below electors before December 19 when they cast their official and final vote on behalf of the electoral college:

Sign Petition To Terminate Clay County Mayor and Nonprofit Director For Calling Michelle Obama an "Ape in Heels"

POSTED ON
November 14

Please sign this petition to have these bigots fired for calling First Lady Michelle Obama an ape in heels. 

They do not deserve to work with the public and are a disgrace to the human race.

At the time of my signing this petition, there were 40,000+ signatures and now there are 45,000+ signatures.

The petition information reads:

Clay County Development Corp. Director Pamela Taylor Ramsey posted a hateful, racially motivated statement to Facebook, which was not only liked by the Clay County Mayor Beverly Whaling, but commented on in a way that showed she agreed with her comments.

Christian Evangelical Trump Supporters Should Explain their First XXX Lady

POSTED ON

"...Cause it was all done for Citizenship..." - Divine Sounds



Christian Evangelical leaders dropped their "witness" ball -- BIG TIME!  That whole "love thy neighbor thing?" Consider the white Christians who voted for Trump the ultimate hypocrites.  But you don't have to hear it from me because I am not an "evangelical" (after discovering how judgemental they were against other religious organizations) ... you can hear about your hypocrisy from an evangelical who "gets it."

 

Sneha Abraham who points to the Christian hypocrisy, and is a Writer & Assistant Director of News & Strategic Content at Pomona College.  She wrote a great opinion for the Huffington Post Religious section that  I agree with.

 

Here's an excerpt where she writes:
First XXX Lady TrumpI am the daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter of preachers. In high school, college and post-grad I held ministry leadership positions. I attend an evangelical church. But this election cycle I’ve been deeply ashamed of the American evangelical church at large. And because the majority of white evangelicals — 81 percent of that constituency, according to exit polls— supported Donald Trump that shame will extend long after Election Day, thanks to the ramifications of their support not only for women, immigrants and people of color, but for the church itself. I count myself a follower of Christ and always will. I love the church. But I believe the majority of white evangelicals and their leaders, barring a few, have failed not only the U.S., but failed the collective flock in the stance they took. I believe they have a lost a generation and, as they say in the church, “lost their witness” to future generations.

How have they lost their witness? Let’s unpack this:

This past year, the church, which is supposed to be at the forefront of racial reconciliation, supported a racist endorsed enthusiastically by the KKK and neo-Nazi groups.

Jesus uplifted women and evangelicals have strict views of acceptable sexual behavior, but regardless they got in bed with an adulterous and misogynistic sexual predator who has made a cameo appearance in a porn video.

Congratulations evangelicals!

You just elected your First XXX Lady.  You lost your witness footing as we all enter the millennial dark ages no thanks to you.

2.3 million petition signatures asking Electoral College Voters to support Popular American Vote

POSTED ON

I signed this petition.... it doesn't hurt to do so. It already has about 2.5 million signatures where folks are asking the #ElectoralCollege electors to support the #PopularVote. Hillary won the popular vote, and although I believe it is too late to do this, it takes only a second to sign the petition and it doesn't hurt to send a clear message that the #PopularVote should be supported.

Send a clear message to the electors by signing this petition.

Happy Veteran's Day: General Patton Turning In His Grave We Elected Draft-Dodger Trump

POSTED ON
November 11

 

Happy #VeteransDay to all who served! Those who served our military and faced dangerous situations head on ... I implore you to summon that warrior spirit that will breed courage so that it can be contagious for others in a time of uncertainty. [You can bet your ass Patton is turning in his grave learning how Americans elected the draft-dodging son-of-a-bitch Donald Trump!]

A Trump presidency is not the end of the world ... it just means we have to do more shit, more work and be extra vigilant. It sucks having to do more work! Believe me! I have been advocating for a humane immigrant rights law for over a decade and it's discouraging sometimes. However, rather than bitch and complain... we have to suck it up. Pull up our bootstraps (if you will), and move forward and stare evil bigotry in the face. We've defeated racism before when we kicked #Hitler's asshole ... and we'll defeat it again. Those who fight for what is right has the arc of justice on their side -- always.

Be strong.

One of my favorite war heroes is General Patton. He had balls of steel and did what was right no matter the pies he got in the face for trying to instill courage in soldiers that were afraid to go to war. I understand why he did some of the things he did -- despite the controversies. Bottom line: He was instrumental in kicking Hitler's ass when all was said and done. How can you NOT admire that!

Andrew Puzder (Sexist Trump Supporting Business Leader) Should Step Down As CEO In Burrito Biz Before Full Boycott Initiated By Latina-led Organization

POSTED ON
November 01

 

And some of these basic things, in being brought up in a Christian family atmosphere is why I’m here today. --  Carl N. Karcher, Founder of Carl’s Jr.
 
Phoenix, AZ -- Like Trump, Andrew F.Puzder isn’t afraid to offend people with his misogynist-like advertisements, and according to the Entrepreneur, he does not care.  Puzder is a proud advisor to Donald Trump.  He is also the CEO for Carl’s Jr, Hardees, Green Burritos and Red Burritos Restaurants. 
 
Per Puzder’s exclusive interview with R Magazine, “In 2016, CKE Restaurants, Inc., boasts two burger brands, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, as well as two side cart businesses, Green Burrito and Red Burrito, the latter two operated inside the burger restaurants. The company has also extended its global reach recently, opening outposts in India, and throughout Japan.”
 
Not only is Puzder a misogynist for his racy ads against women, he has been busy boasting about being a Donald Trump advisor and supporter, too, with his many appearances on the FOX network.  We are not surprised to hear of Puzder’s turning a blind hypocritical eye to Trump’s own sexual predator nature against women, but we are surprised the CEO of Carl’s Jr. and Hardees is benefiting (revenue-wise) in a state where Chicanos and Latinos outnumber whites in California.
 
Is Puzder so ignorant to how Chicanos and Latinos feel about Trump
 
Do the board of directors realize the receive more revenue from California (a state with a high population of Chicanos) than any other state?
 
If so, why are they taking a risk with a possible boycott in a perfect storm? There are over 600 Carl's Jr. restaurants in California, with approximately 70 in Arizona, approximately 50 in Nevada, more in Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, etc.  There are 3200 restaurants total world wide.  This means Puzder is more than likely receiving most of his revenue in the state of California where Latinos outnumber whites per the L.A. Times.   
 
One would think the Trump supporting CEO is committing business suicide in California as the political shift in the southwest continues its course where Mexican Americans continue to reshape the electoral map in the southwest.   According to Five Thirty Eight, Mexican-Americans constitute 63 percent of the 57 million U.S. Latinos. Some Mexican-Americans can trace their heritage in New Mexico and other regions later acquired as U.S. territory back to the 1600s and earlier, while others are recent immigrants.”
 
One thing is certain: Puzder has no business selling burritos – a Mexican American dish.  Green Burrito is part of Carl's Jr. and is under Andy's purview, while Red Burrito is part of Hardee's which is the east coast sister company of Carl’s Jr. (also under Andy's purview). 
 
It’s time for the Carl’s Jr. / Hardees Restaurant board of directors and decision makers to get their racist and sexist cancer out of their midst before Chicanas and Latinas ask for a full-blown boycott for his sexist offensive advertisements, and for his proud stance of supporting Donald Trump’s bigotry when he depicted our community as rapists and murderers.   Though “Many franchisees of CKE have asked the corporation to tone down the sexual side of their advertising,” Carl’s Jr. franchisee Russ Clark said in a Sept. 4 letter to the California newspaper the Appeal Democrat, we believe board members should also get rid of the man who supports a candidate who depicts Mexican Americans as rapists and murderers.  When the burger chain began running its racy TV ads, the Rev. Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral said Karcher (founder of Carl’s Jr.) was "just heartbroken that a company he founded on Christian principles has taken such an amoral act."
 
Like the Carl’s Jr. founder, I believe in the free market system, too -- and we are free to call out racist and sexist individuals who are on the wrong side of history.  It may be high time for Andy Puzder to go a different way in promoting Russian foods since his hero (Trump) loves Vladimir Putin so much. But for now, he would be wise avoiding promoting Mexican foods that are on the Carl’s Jr., Hardees and Green Burritos menu.  It’s time for Puzder to step down or else he will be responsible for the decisions he has made as CEO and as more and more Latinos visiting the approximate 600 restaurants in California and in the southwest will be informed with how they are creating the monster they provide revenue for.

Vote No on Prop 205 and Poorly Written Laws

POSTED ON
October 28

I support medical marijuana in the State of Arizona.  However, I am not ready for poorly written laws like Prop. 205.  The former Denver Mayor in the State of Colorado has exposed the lies of the recreational marijuana advocates when they told Colorado voters that a chunk of their approximate billion dollar annual profits would go to education.  They lied.  Since the passage of recreational marijuana in Colorado, state lawmakers have had to make approximately 9 amendments to the poorly written law.  Arizona does not get to make amendments to laws supported by propositions and in my view that is not smart.

From La Voz:

Nuevo impulso entre latinos en campaña contra Prop. 205

Rafael Carranza , La Voz 5:50 p.m. MST Octubre 27, 2016
El gobernador Doug Ducey se reunió con líderes comunitarios

A menos de dos semanas de las elecciones del 8 de noviembre, líderes latinos en contra de la legalización del uso recreativo de la mariguana dan un último impulso para convencer a votantes latinos de Arizona de votar en contra de la Proposición 205.

Como parte de la estrategia, una decena de estos líderes comunitarios y electos se reunieron para un panel el jueves con el gobernador Doug Ducey, quien ha liderado la campaña en contra de esta medida.

"A estas personas, les importan sus comunidades, le importan sus familias, valoran la educación, quieren lo que es posible en el futuro para sus hijos en este país", dijo Ducey sobre el grupo reunido. "Me parece que todo ellos entendieron de inmediato porque esta medida es una mala idea".

Durante la reunión, el gobernador destacó que la campaña en contra ha recaudado seis millones de dólares y que los utilizarán principalmente en anuncios televisivos para convencer a los padres de familia de votar en contra de la Proposición 205.

La propuesta de ley le permitiría a personas mayores de 21 años portar hasta una onza de mariguana. Su venta sería controlada de manera estricta y sujeta a un impuesto especial que beneficiaría a las escuelas, según los proponentes.

El gobernador Ducey dijo que su problema más grande no tiene que ver con la legalización, si no con la forma en la cual está escrita la medida y el proceso para aprobarla

"Si es aprobada, tiene la protección de los votantes, es parte de la constitución y no se podrá cambiar", explicó Ducey. "Como gobernador no puede vetar esta ley, como legisladores no pueden hacer enmiendas, no se puede mejorar. No puedo pensar en cualquier otra ley que hayamos aprobado que no ha necesitado de algún mejoramiento, y ésta es una afectaría dramáticamente al estado".

Reacción de líderes latinos

La gran mayoría de líderes latinos comunitarios o electos que estuvieron presentes en la reunión dijeron estar en contra de la medida.

Durante la reunión, varios argumentaron que la legalización de la mariguana crearía una distracción innecesaria para los estudiantes en las escuelas, al igual que las comunidades mayormente latinas como Maryvale.

"En las entradas de nuestra comunidad el apeste, y el humo de segunda mano, le digo yo a la gente tal vez salga yo intoxicada aunque la gente no quiera", dijo Lydia Hernández, una ex legisladora estatal y actual miembro de la mesa directiva del Distrito Cartwright.

"¿Qué va a suceder con estos lugares de ventas si esto llega a pasar?", ella se preguntó. "No van a estar en Scottsdale, la gente de Scottsdale viene aquí".

Hernández dijo que como parte de la mesa directiva de Cartwright, buscaría formas de hacer llegar mayor información a los padres para que "tengan y manejen con los datos apropiados".
