01) Two Black Men Found Hanged Near Los Angeles, WHERE ARE THE INVESTIGATIONS???


“The public needs more answers on the deaths of these two men.

A growing number of residents and officials in Los Angeles County are demanding answers in the death of a black man whose body was discovered hanging from a tree in a park.

Robert Fuller’s body was found early Wednesday in Poncitlán Square in Palmdale, Calif., a commuter city roughly an hour north of Los Angeles. The 24-year-old’s death was deemed a likely suicide based on preliminary findings, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Fuller’s family and supporters are pushing back against the department’s assessment, saying his death appears to be a lynching.

“Bernie Sanders’ chief advisor is actively courting billionaires by trying to strike down any third party movement. Tulsi Gabbard gets nominated for an award previously won by Ajamu Baraka. 2 Black men “commit suicide” within 10 days of each other, within 50 miles of each other, and in the exact same fashion. But, the family does not believe law enforcement’s assessment.”

Trump Freaks Out Over Confederate Flag Ban…

01) Trump Freaks Out Over Confederate Flag Ban


“There’s a showdown between Republicans, Nascar and Trump.

The Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday voted to require the Pentagon to rename military bases and other assets named after Confederate generals, a move that puts the Republican-led panel on a collision course with the White House.

The committee adopted an amendment to the annual Pentagon policy bill that gives the Defense Department three years to remove the names of Confederate generals from U.S. military assets, according to a source familiar with the closed-door proceedings.

The language, adopted by voice vote as President Donald Trump preemptively threatened to veto any defense bill that did just that, affects massive bases like Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Benning in Georgia. But it also goes further and includes everything from ships to streets on Defense Department property.

I’m not a fan of scrubbing away names, and removing monuments.
