Archive for August, 2014


On Thursday, August 14, 2014, a rally was held in Durham, NC concerning the Michael Brown Shooting in Ferguson, Mo. Our liberal Media was all over it. They are reporting the ‘DIVERSITY’ of the crowd  and all sorts of “Feel Good” & “Kumbayah” moments.

I will now provide my readers SD2010’s “The Rest of the Story” (apologies to Paul Harvey for stealing his phrase)

1st off, here are links to the WRAL & WTVD versions:

2nd, Let us look at some of the organizers (who the MSM refused to list by name)

Here’s FIST and what they represent;

Notice the FIST Sign the woman is holding

Notice the FIST Sign the woman is holding

“ABOUT – FIST (Fight Imperialism – Stand Together) is a national group of young revolutionaries committed to fighting racism, sexism, oppression of lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, and exploitation of the working class, all of which result from imperialism and capitalism. We believe that the only way to achieve true liberation for all peoples throughout the world is through socialism.

We are living in a time of capitalism at a dead end, where our dreams are constantly crushed by budget cuts, racism, deportations and poverty. The need for a revolutionary movement to transform society is more urgent than ever.”

Next organizer is Workers World Party;      

 WWP01   

About Us – Workers World Party fights for a socialist society—where the wealth is socially owned and production is planned to satisfy human need. That’s also what workers around the world, from Cuba to China, have been struggling for. The U.S. rulers have spent trillions of our tax dollars trying to stop them in a global class struggle. WWP promotes international working-class solidarity, the right of every nation to sovereignty and self-determination, and militant resistance at home to imperialist interventions and wars.

But wait, there’s MORE —– Then there is THIS GUY. Guy in the video from WTVD. Your TAX DOLLARS pay him to Indoctrinate your Children at UNC Chapel Hill.

I wish I could figure out what is on HIS T-Shirt?

I wish I could figure out what is on HIS T-Shirt? A woman with an ‘Assault Weapon’ maybe? Could it fit right in with that “Militant Resistance at home to Imperialist interventions” as mention above?      I report, YOU DECIDE!

Current Research:

Dr. Perucci’s teaching and research address performance as a complex of power and as a means of resistance, subversion, opposition and rupture. His work draws on theories and embodied practices of social movements (especially labor, civil rights, anarchist, and anti-capitalist), the aesthetics and organization of experimental theatre, and avant-garde visual and performing arts.

And then we have this gent mentioned in WRAL’s coverage.

Note: This is a Proposed Resolution that has been sent to “SOME” of our elected officials here in NC. It has NOT been passed nor has it been voted on by the NC General Assembly.

 

      

Resolution Addressing Attorney General

Roy Cooper’s Refusal to Enforce the

NC Constitution

    

NC Seal

 

 

Whereas, on May 8, 2012, the citizens of North Carolina voted overwhelmingly to approve an amendment – the Marriage Amendment – to the state constitution, which reads as follows:

Sec.6. Marriage. Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts. (2011-409, s. 1) [1] , [4]

Whereas, the NC state constitution provides two ways in which it can be amended: (1) by a convention of the people; or (2) by legislative initiative; and

Whereas, historically, North Carolina’s constitutional amendments have come by legislative initiative (i.e., a proposal from the General Assembly); and

Whereas, the State Constitution sets forth the procedure by which the General Assembly may initiate and the people may ratify or reject an amendment, including prescribing the time and manner the proposed amendment is to be submitted to the voters:

NC CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE XIII (CONVENTIONS; CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND REVISION), Section 4. Revision or Amendment by Legislative Initiation.

“A proposal of a new or revised Constitution or an amendment or amendments to this Constitution may be initiated by the General Assembly, but only if three-fifths of all the members of each house shall adopt an act submitting the proposal to the qualified voters of the State for their ratification or rejection. The proposal shall be submitted at the time and in the manner prescribed by the General Assembly. If a majority of the votes cast thereon are in favor of the proposed new or revised Constitution or constitutional amendment or amendments, it or they shall become effective January first next after ratification by the voters unless a different effective date is prescribed in the act submitting the proposal or proposals to the qualified voters.” [2]

Whereas, marriage (its definition and its regulation) is a traditional STATE issue, under its inherent state sovereign police powers (to regulate for the health, safety, welfare, and morality of its people; the federal government has NO such police powers); and

Whereas, the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution, by its plain and simple language, ensures that the federal government shall not infringe upon state powers and hence never encroach upon state issues:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Whereas, the Preamble to the Bill of Rights (which many states insisted upon before agreeing to be bound by the Constitution) articulates the unequivocal reason for the amendments:

The Preamble to The Bill of Rights:

Congress of the United States begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; …. [3]

Whereas, the People and their state legislature have rightfully and legally amended the state constitution; and

Whereas, on July 28, 2014, the federal 4th District Court of Appeals ruled 2-to-1 that Virgina’s “Marriage Amendment” (adopted by the voters in Virginia by ballot in 2006) is unconstitutional – the first federal court ruling on this issue to affect the South; and

Whereas, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals includes North Carolina (it hears appeals from the nine federal district courts in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina); and

Whereas, North Carolina’s Attorney General, Roy Copper, has stated that “his office” would no longer defend the state’s Marriage Amendment, as it is his personal opinion that the court’s decision will ultimately condemn it; and

Whereas, the “his office” is really the “people’s” office, for the state Attorney General is a high-ranking law enforcement official, serving as the chief legal officer of the state and often being referred to as “the Peoples’ Lawyer”; and

Whereas, the amendment was not adopted to deny anyone a fundamental human right, but rather to coincide with natural laws and therefore, to serve the ends of public policy; and

Whereas, there is a clear distinction between the wording “All Men are Created Equal” that is expressed in the Declaration of Independence and the term “equality” as defined by the laws of nature. Jefferson, as the author of the Declaration, meant that all people are equal in having a shared human nature. The laws that faithfully guide, explain, and predict nature and its creations define our humanity, our biology, our purpose, and our limitations.

Whereas, laws are strongest when they embrace natural law and weakest when they run afoul of natural law; and

Whereas, Attorney General Roy Cooper took an oath of office which states:

ARTICLE VI (SUFFRAGE AND ELIGIBILITY TO OFFICE), Section 7. Oath.

Before entering upon the duties of an office, a person elected or appointed to the office shall take and subscribe the following oath:

“I, _______________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of North Carolina not inconsistent therewith, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of my office as_______________, so help me God.” [4]

      

 

Therefore, be it Resolved that both houses of the North Carolina General Assembly hereby move that Attorney General Roy Cooper be given the following two choices;

1) To submit his Immediate Resignation from Office;

or,

2) To submit a written Public Apology for his refusal to perform the duties of the Attorney General, including a retraction of his previous statement and a written assurance that he will continue to enforce the Marriage Amendment to the North Carolina Constitution.
