Apparently public warning signs that brick Portland buildings could collapse in an earthquake reinforce gentrification

I got nothing. I can’t keep up with all the racist and white supremacy (even though I’m undoubtedly labeled both) tactics. You’ll have to decipher this story on your own.

As reported by Oregon Live, public safety messages are now deemed racist.

From their story: The Portland branch of the NAACP is jumping into a fight over a city policy that will require owners of brick buildings to post public warnings that the buildings could collapse in an earthquake.

The civil rights group said Thursday it would hold a rally Saturday on the steps of City Hall urging the city to drop the ordinance, which affects about 1,600 buildings throughout the city. Its leader said the policy, approved by the City Council in October, would reinforce gentrification in historically black segments of North and Northeast Portland.

The policy “exacerbates a long history of systemic and structural betrayals of trust and policies of displacement, demolition, and dispossession predicated on classism, racism, and white supremacy,” the Portland chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said in a statement.

The signs were to go up in publicly owned buildings by Tuesday. If the ordinance remains in effect, most other buildings will be required to post the signs by March 1, but churches and nonprofit organizations would have two years to comply.

Leaders of predominantly black churches affected by the ordinance castigated the city in June as the City Council discussed requiring seismic upgrades over a 20-year timeline. Pastors said then that they had been left out of talks while the ordinance was drafted, and the NAACP said the black community was similarly were left out of the discussion over the placarding ordinance.

“It speaks to our houses of worship and everything about the black presence in the North-Northeast area,” said the Rev. E.D. Mondainé, president of the Portland NAACP chapter and a pastor at Celebration Tabernacle Church in North Portland. “As usual, the African American community is the first affected and the last informed.”

Other owners of brick and concrete buildings also have objected to the ordinance, saying it would drive away tenants and customers and make it harder to pay for upgrades in the long run.

The ordinance would require building owners to prominently post signs with the disclosure: “This is an unreinforced masonry building. Unreinforced masonry buildings may be unsafe in the event of a major earthquake.”

The same warning would be distributed to tenants of the buildings, and the owner must file a record of compliance among county property records.

The NAACP and other building owners have said the compliance record will make it difficult for building owners to secure loans, discouraging investment in the structures. Ultimately they would be forced to sell, the group argued, and the buildings would likely be demolished and redeveloped.

Comedian vows to wear fur until cops stop killing black people

You’ll always find grandiose egos in Hollyweird.

From People: Tiffany Haddish is making a bold statement as she protests police brutality. The actress, 39, shared via Instagram that a fan gifted her her own fur vest after Haddish expressed interest in the garment. And now that she has one, Haddish doesn’t plan on taking it off until police brutality, particularly against black men and women, is addressed.

“I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting,” she says in the video. “I’m going to wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA, don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police.”

She continues, “See how that go? Because people are important. And so are the animals – to keep me warm.”

Though it’s not clear whether Haddish is just joking, as she has a smile on her face the whole time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) took to the comments section in her post to urge her to find another way to protest.

“We love you, Tiffany, and as an animal rights organization, we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals,” the organization commented. “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all.”

The video came just the day before Haddish bombed her New Year’s Eve stand-up set in Miami. Although Haddish already tweeted after the show that she wishes it had gone “better,” the star told TMZ on Wednesday that she didn’t do her best because of being overworked.

“See, your brain is an interesting thing when you don’t get the proper amount of rest,” she told the outlet “You gotta understand, I worked almost every single day last year. I’ve only been home, I was doing the math yesterday, a grand total of 40 days. I slept in my bed a grand total of 28 days the whole year. And I worked all the way up literally until New Year’s.”

Al Sharpton approved: LeBron James says NFL team owners have slave mentality

Birds of a feather…

LeBron being a good progressive and keeping the hate and divide alive and well…

From Yahoo: LeBron James, who has consistently used his platform as one of the most famous men in America to discuss social issues, has said that NFL owners have a “slave mentality”.

The Los Angeles Lakers star made the comments on Friday’s broadcast of his HBO discussion show, The Shop. “In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality,” James said. “And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f*ck I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of y’all.’

James’s comments come after a stormy few seasons in the NFL. Two players, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, have filed grievances against the league and its teams’ owners alleging they colluded to keep them out of football due to their stance on social issues. Both men knelt during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice in the United States. Although Reid has now found a team, the Carolina Panthers, this week he said he had been randomly drug tested by the league six times in 11 weeks. Yahoo Sports calculated the chances of that happening were 0.17%.

The NBA, on the other hand, has been praised for being much more progressive on social issues. “The difference between the NBA and the NFL, the NBA is what we believe he [a player] can be. The potential,” James said. “In the NFL, it’s like what can you do for me this Sunday, or this Monday or this Thursday, and if you ain’t it, we moving on.”

James highlighted the work of the NBA’s commissioner, Adam Silver, in making the league a welcoming environment for players. “I’m so appreciative in our league of our commissioner,” James said. “He doesn’t mind us having … a real feeling and to be able to express that. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, nonviolent way, then he’s absolutely OK with it.”

James has been quick to speak up about social issues in the past. He is a long-time critic of the US president, Donald Trump. In an interview with the web series Uninterrupted in January, James said of Trump: “The number one job in America … is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a f*ck about the people.”

In February, James explained why he was critical of the president: “While we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, that this is not the way.”

The Kaepernick Effect: Ratings for NFL 2018 season opener lowest since 2009

In 2016, at the third preseason game of the 49ers, quarterback Colin Kaepernick began his public virtue-signalling, protesting against alleged racial injustice in America by refusing to standing at the National Anthem played before the start of NFL games.

Since then, the Kaepernick contagion has spread to other NFL players. Nike, Inc., even elevates Kaepernick to heroic stature, featuring him in the company’s “Just Do It” campaign in an ad with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” (See DCG’s post, “National Association of Police Organizations calls for boycott of Nike over Kaepernick campaign“.)

Football fans have shown their distaste for Kaepernick and other NFL players’ politicization of the sport and disrespect for the National Anthem by boycotting the NFL. Their boycott continues to depress TV ratings of NFL games, although I believe ratings and profits no longer motivate Left-infested corporations.

Dominic Patten reports for Deadline Hollywood that viewership for the first official game (Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons) of the NFL’s new season on September 6, 2018, fell to a 9-year low:

  • Only 19 million watched the game on NBC — a decline of 13% from  last year’s NFL opener holding the previous record, and the worst any kickoff game has done since 2009.
  • Among adults 18-49, the decline was worse — a drop of 14% from 2017.
  • For that matter, NFL ratings have declined every year since 2014, but especially since 2016 when Kaepernick began his virtue-signalling anthem protest.

Deadline Hollywood‘s Patten observes:

Even in a TV landscape where ratings and viewership are noticeably dipping, unless you are This Is Us or Game Of Thrones, those results have to worry the NFL and the broadcasters, especially the still Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox with its pricey Thursday Night Football debuting this year

Meanwhile, as the NFL enters the 2018 season, there is still no resolution to the anthem protest issue.

Question: If Colin Kaepernick really cares about #BlackLivesMatter, why isn’t he protesting about the millions of black babies being aborted, or the black-on-black carnage of homicides in cities like Chicago?

National Association of Police Organizations calls for boycott of Nike over Kaepernick campaign

Kaepernick wearing his police bashing socks

Race profiteer Colin Kaepernick has an endorsement deal with Nike. It has caused A LOT of debate. The former NFL player is featured in Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign in an ad with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

According to NBC:

Kaepernick already had a deal with Nike that was set to expire, but it was renegotiated into a multiyear deal to make him one of the faces of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, according to a person familiar with the contract. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Nike hasn’t officially announced the contract.

The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”

Many people are NOT pleased with the campaign especially since Kaepernick is very critical of police and was once caught wearing socks depicting police as pigs.

As a result, the National Association of Police Organizations called for a boycott of Nike. From their statement:

“NAPO is calling on all our member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products in response to the company’s selection of Colin Kaepernick for its “Just Do It” ad campaign. On September 4, NAPO sent a letter to the Chairman, President and CEO of Nike, Inc., condemning this move in the strongest possible terms. Mr. Kaepernick is known, not as a successful athlete, but as a shallow dilettante seeking to gain notoriety by disrespecting the flag for which so many Americans have fought and died. 

The inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign also perpetuates the falsehood that police are racist and aiming to use force against African Americans and persons of color.  In reality, officers across the nation risk their lives not only protecting the athletes featured in Nike’s various campaigns, but also serve aspiring athletes across the country who use the Nike brand, through the thousands of Police Athletic Leagues, Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brother/Big Sister programs where our officers donate their time and energy. They deserve to have the respect and full support of corporate citizens like Nike. 

Adding to the insult is the image of Mr. Kaepernick from the campaign featuring the quote “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”  The fact that Mr. Kaepernick is no longer a starting NFL player does not equate to him being someone who has “sacrificed everything”. To truly understand what it means to “believe in something” and “sacrifice everything”, you should look to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., or to the trauma unit of a military hospital. The brave men and women of every race and color buried there, memorialized there, healing there, believed in this nation and our flag and exemplify the true meaning of “sacrifice”.  

In featuring Mr. Kaepernick in the “Just Do It” campaign, Nike grossly insults the men and women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation.  

Click here to view NAPO’s letter to Nike, Inc.”

I can’t remember the last time I purchased a Nike product. I certainly won’t be buying any in the future.

Democrat Presidential Hopefuls

Look who’s running in 2020!

That’s right, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and (gasp) Hillary!

John Kerry and Joe Biden were all over “network” news this morning. Both were saying they might consider a presidential run, and both were posing and primping. And there is still the specter of another Hillary run.

But let’s not forget whose agenda they most recently served.

They all have their finger prints on the dirty Iran nukes deal, the sale of vast amounts of uranium to Russia, insider relations with Muslim Brotherhood (the birthing ground for all current jihadists except Iranian jihadists), massive election fraud, the sending of race baiting activists to every American city to stir up race war, not to mention Obamacare and the failed Obama economy.

But not pictured here is Hillary, another member of the Obama team.

An architect of the Arab Spring (no it’s not a deodorant soap)

The “Arab Spring” that overthrew governments across North Africa, Syria and the Levant, with the aid of Obama operatives like Hillary Clinton and John McCain, and the passive support of Facebook and other social media, devastated most of the Christians of those regions.

Did I mention that stalwart of American patriotism, John McCain?

Yup, the McCain who secretly sent supplies. intel and military support to the good terrorists to oppose the bad terrorists.

Did I mention it was these good terrorists who massacred the Americans at Benghazi? Yeah, the poor jihadists mistook a signal to mean that the Americans who were arming them had betrayed them.

But let’s stop bickering over who killed who, and recognize the real objectives being served.

Obama’s team helped rid North Africa, Syria and the Levant of all those pesky Christians, even their dangerous children.

So when you decide on who to support for president, remember,

a vote for Kerry, Biden or Clinton
is a vote for Lucifer.

South Africa prelude to genocide: gun & land confiscation; racial quotas in new mining charter

All signs are pointing to a looming human rights crisis of white genocide in South Africa:

(1) Land Confiscation

In February 2018, South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa made land expropriation a key pillar of his policy platform after taking over from ousted PM Jacob Zuma.

This was followed by the South African parliament’s passage, by an overwhelming majority of 241 to 83 votes, of a motion to begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.

The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the far-left Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters political party, and supported by the ruling African National Congress. (News.com.au)

(2) Call for White Genocide

In June 2018, Julius Malema made a barely-concealed threat of white genocide in an interview with TRT World News.

He said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.” When the reporter mentioned that some people might view his remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” then warned white South Africans that the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy.”

H/t TrailDust’s “White Genocide Looming in South Africa“.

(3) Gun Confiscation

On June 7, 2018, South Africa’s Constitutional Court unanimously ruled that sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act (2000) are constitutional. Sections 24 and 28 require firearm owners to renew their licenses every five years; failure to do so meant an owner is in the illegal possession of a firearm, which is punishable by 15 years in prison. (Daily Maverick)

A year ago, on July 4, 2017, the North Gauteng High Court had declared sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act unconstitutional. Before the Firearms Control Act of 2000‚ a license to possess a firearm lasted for life. (Times Live)

Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a license must do so 90 days before its expiry date. Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm license has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame is placed on its disposal, which is to be done through a dealer.

The Constitutional Court’s ruling means that South African gun owners who fail to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then presumably destroy them.

José Niño of Gunpowder Magazine rightly observes:

The history of gun confiscation is one of repeated cases of tyranny.

From countries such as Cuba to the Soviet Union, aspiring demagogues have used gun confiscation to disarm the populace. Logically, an unarmed populace will put up little resistance against their tyrannical acts.

(4) New Mining Charter

The economy of South Africa is the second largest (after Nigeria) and one of the most industrialized in Africa, due in large part to mining. Though mining’s contribution to the national GDP has fallen from 21% in 1970 to 6% in post-apartheid 2011, it still represents almost 60% of the country’s exports.

But the South African government is radically revising its Mining Charter, which will be published this November. (Reuters)

The new Mining Charter will require racial quotas in the form of minimum percentages of Black ownership of shares, Black supply of mining goods, and Black employees.

As described by Chris of www.CapitalistExploits.at (via ZeroHedge), Aug. 24, 2018, the changes to the Mining Charter include:

Ownership

  • A new mining right must have a minimum of 30% Black Persons’ shareholding, with the 30% shareholding to be apportioned between employees, communities and entrepreneurs in a specific manner.
  • A minimum 8% shareholding is allocated to mine communities, to be held through a trust.
  • A minimum 14% shareholding must be to black entrepreneurs.

Annual Turnover

  • Holder of a mining rights must pay 1% of its annual turnover to the 30% black persons’ shareholding prior to, and over and above any distributions made by a Holder to its shareholders. This 1% payment is always subject to the solvency and liquidity test as provided for in the Companies Act but is not negotiable under any other terms.

Procurement

  • The Charter requires 70% procurement of mining goods and 80% procurement of services from BEE entities (Black empowered entities); it also requires that analysis of 100% of mineral samples be done by South African based companies. This is mandatory and in place no matter how incompetent or expensive these protected companies services may be.

Employment Equity

  • At board level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black.
  • At executive/top management level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black
  • At senior management level, a minimum of 60% black representation, 30% of which must be both female and black
  • At middle management level, a minimum of 75% black representation, 38% of which must be both female and black
  • At junior management level, a minimum of 88% black representation, 44% of which must be both female and black

Human Resource Development

  • A holder must invest 5% of the leviable amount on essential skills development.

Chris predicts:

This mining charter will eventually lead to South Africa becoming a mining backwater, a shadow of its former glory.

Even the average village idiot could tell you that the South African mining industry is going to follow a slow and painful decline with the “irony” that the very people that the mining charter is purportedly going to “empower” will be those worst affected, along with all the businesses surrounding this industry and, in turn, those businesses surrounding the mining service businesses. In short, the whole of South Africa.

Fake Hate Crime: Black man scrawled 'KKK' graffiti at Eastern Michigan U.

Mon, 04 Jun 2018 11:13:00 +0000

eowyn2

In 2016 and 2017, racist graffiti targeting black people were spray-painted on the walls of Eastern Michigan University (EMU).

It turns out that the graffiti weren’t the malicious acts of “white supremacists,” but of a black former student, Eddie Curlin, 29.

Eddie Curlin

On May 21, 2018, Washtenaw County Trial Judge David Swartz ordered Eddie Curlin to pay more than $2,000 to EMU on three counts of malicious destruction of a building, and to serve 2 to 5 years in prison on four unrelated counts of identity theft.

On April 23, Curlin had pleaded guilty to the identity theft counts as well as the graffiti counts, including:

  1. In September 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s King Hall the hate messages “KKK” (referencing the Ku Klux Klan) in red, white, and blue, and below that, in bold black letters “leave niggers”.
  2. In October 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s Ford Hall, right next to a monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, the hate message: “leave niggers”.
  3. In Spring 2017, spray painting a racist message in a men’s restroom stall in EMU’s Sherzer Hall.

Curlin attended EMU from 2014 to early 2016.

University officials say Curlin vandalized the buildings then acted as a police informant. Police believe he was motivated by hopes of acting as an informant in the case in order that previous criminal charges against him would be dropped and he would be allowed to return as a student to EMU.

After he was unmasked as the author of the racist graffiti, Curlin publicly admitted his guilt. He said at a news conference last year: “It was totally self-serving. It was not driven by politics. It was not driven by race.”
