CIARA MEYER IS THE ANSWER ANY PROGRESSIVE SHOULD GIVE TO A CONSERVATIVE GUN LOVER ON DEFENDING THEIR HOME AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT

I didn’t want this to become a political post but the more I thought about the events that lead to the death of Ciara Meyer, 12 of Penn Township, Pennsylvania I found that impossible. Conservatives will hate this story because Ciara was not in a gang and she did not have a black boyfriend who could be blamed. Nor was she in a Liberal town as the county in which she lived voted 68% for Mitt Romney in 2012. As a matter of fact Ciara lived in a town and adjacent area where the population is more than 98% white and 0.3% black out of a population of 3,013 Souls. In fact her death is the fault of her father Donald B Meyer and the National Rifle Association. The elder Meyer was being evicted from his home yet he owned a .223 rifle which had a magazine which could hold 30 rounds. One could posit that Donald Meyer should have sold his rifle and gotten what he could to at least help to pay the rent. Instead when the Constable Clark Steele arrived at his home to evict him Meyer chose to point his loaded rifle at the officer. Steele fired and the round struck and killed Ciara instantly.

I have read many times on the terrestrial Internet where those on the right say they could defend their home against the government if they came to take their guns. I’ve also noted many times conservatives opining that if more people carried guns there would be less crime because good gun toting citizens with no police training could help the police to thwart rapes, robberies and homicides. Well in this case a man with a loaded .223 rifle only succeeded in getting his 12 year old girl killed and himself arrested. There is a GoFundMe site to cover the burial expenses for Ciara Meyer who is now a Free Citizen in the Afterlife and away from all the guns and killing and anger that are a part of the culture of American Conservatism.

JIM HOFT’S TRANSGENDER TERRORISTS CLAIMS IN PLANNED PARENTHOOD COLORADO ATTACK PROVE FALSE

Jumping the shark once again, Jim Hoft the proprietor of GatewayPundit has gone the extra mile for conservative fear by repeating an error in a public website that Robert Lewis Dear was a transgender person based on his voting card. Ted Cruz candidate for the GOP presidential nomination reiterated this falsehood just yesterday on a Sunday talk show. We, Ourselves, of The Collective have no idea why these people would do this other thaqn profit and this is a cause for alarm for all Progressives. Donald Trump has been rewriting history to his own ends regarding 9/11 so it appears that conservatives have no problem picking their own facts with current events. Dear has made comments to law enforcement claiming his attack on the Planned Parenthood office in Colorado Springs was because of “baby parts” and that he regularly distributed anti-government and anti-Obama literature. This does not bear out with the meme of a “far let liberal” that Cruz and Hoft have professed.

You do realize that your time is running out? When President Obama leaves office in January 2017 there will be no profit to be made from the sort of bigotry you swim in currently. Therefore, none of the elites that share your ideology, with nothing to gain financially from bigotry will jettison you and your kind for those who simply hate the Clintons. This must be a truly sad time for you Tim because there just is not enough hatred for Hillary Clinton to justify the pounds of seething vitriol those with your retrograde ideology have flung at the sitting President.

First the White House,

then Congress,

Then SCOTUS,

Then governorships,

then state legislatures,

Then county governments,

then city councils.

We already have the major cities, the American youth, American minorities, American women under 45, the LGBT community and the unions. So what are the conservatives, the right and worse the far right left with? The church goers who are not Christians? The frightened millions of those who feel their right to have the power of Life and Death in their hands in the form of a gun is more important than the lives of living breathing people? The lifeless people who feel that a woman who has been raped bears a responsibility to give birth to the product of that rape? Those black hearts who feel that a gay or lesbian or transgendered person is somehow less Human than they are because of who they love? The Right has lost. Those with this arcane ideology will lose nothing but their prideful desires for control and the power they have too long held over those who do not share their worldview.

You will still be free to worship as you please; but you will not be able to use the power of the pulpit, the synagogue or the mosque to define what others do.

You will still have your precious guns despite all the blood they spill; but you will not have the right to command an arsenal that can threaten the Peace and power of any government, be it Federal, State or Local.

You will still have Freedom of Speech; but fewer and fewer people over the coming decades will wish to hear the angry protestations of the Right because they are tainted with racist nationalist bigotries that are almost as old as Mankind.

It has been nearly 200 years since a political party destroyed itself right before the eyes of the American people. Now as it was then, the party that died was blind to the change coming and was overwhelmed by it. The new party that rose from the ashes saved the nation from destruction and preserved the greatest Union Terra has ever known. That party was the GOP; its opposition was the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party was rooted in white nationalism, bigotry and the economic need to maintain slavery in the agrarian South using religion as a justification. The GOP was the party of abolitionists who saw the potential in all Men who lived on American soil were and should be full Citizens.

The Union was saved; world wars were fought and still the scars of the Civil War and a Reconstruction still were shown on the backs and necks of America’s black citizens and those who saw them as equals for more than one hundred years. The sins of the Democratic Party’s past were absolved by FDR and his New Deal. The greatest series of government programs to right the economic ship of state in the history of the nation. Democrats became the new abolitionist seeking to abolish poverty; first for the white poor and then for all.

There are and have been millions who took unfair advantage of this system over time and those who abused welfare to their own detriment have been far out shined simply by those millions upon millions who did not become dependent on that system. And this is a teachable moment about the difference between We, Ourselves and those like you Tim. While you would focus on cities that are experiencing high rates of black crime you would ignore the crises of prescription drug abuse and suicide in your own race. While you would shout about the 47 million who depend on the pittance that SNAP offers a family those on ideological right shout at the Heavens about what a waste it is to offer a child $142 a month for food. A living child who is poor has less value to you than a child in the womb. Where is the logic in this argument?

Oh how grand it must have been for people like you one hundred years ago. A feeling of near deity like omnipotence with the only possible threat to your dominance coming from others like you that might whisper some gossip that placed a black mark on your familial reputation. Crime, divorce, alternative lifestyles and mental illness could place you on a social tier just above all those minorities that were tortured by the terrorists of the age who then were no better than ISIS is today.

But your time of worry is nearly at an end. We, Ourselves, of The Collective will ask one simple favor of the dwindling number of Baby Boomer conservatives. Take to your knees and pray for Progressives that will lead America into the middle of this current century. And while you pray to your deities, We will pray to the Fates that the Progressives will be good stewards of the People’s Will and will protect those like you in your minority status better than those like you since time immemorial refused to do.

As I sit here in my home relaxing after a very nice brunch with Veronica, I can’t help but think about history. Not just any history but the history of my former nation the United States of America and how it has been intertwined with the history of this newspaper. In just sixty-one days The Dis Brimstone-Daily Pitchfork will celebrate its tenth anniversary as a progressive and hard hitting news blog. Our very first story in late August 2005 was about the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana and Cavalor Epthith [q c p n!] made it clear after the first week that this blog was a work in progress and that our mission was not to change the minds of people but to “simply make them think.”

Well, people are thinking, some of them hopefully many of the more than a million that have read these pages, are. Cavalor after the first year said he was willing to keep the digital version of the paper alive for five Terran years and in that last few months before the fifth anniversary he would review our efforts and decide if it should continue for another five years. After the election of President Barack Obama and all the reporting the staff had done on the failure of the Iraq War there was a feeling of certainty that the plug would not be pulled.

On 29 August 2010 Cavalor said, “We simply cannot stop now just when things are getting interesting.” Oh, how much more interesting things have gotten since that day. This month has seen tragedy in Charleston, South Carolina as nine black Christians were murdered by a white supremacist terrorist and triumph as the United States’ Supreme Court upheld Obamacare and decided that same sex couples have marriage rights in all fifty states of the Union. Despite conservative warnings that the nation would tear itself apart if either of these decisions came to pass it is business as usual from Washington to Los Angeles on this fine morning.

So as is in my nature I’ve taken my victory lap over these two decisions, said a quiet prayer to the Fates on behalf of the grieving families of the victims in Charleston and gone back to the work that I am tasked to do here– looking for threads in the reports of news from all over Terra. There is still much work to do and Cavalor knows this best of all. Just yesterday he brought the staff in for a meeting about what we will be doing here digitally for the 2016 election. “So we’re not shutting up shop in late August?” I asked smiling. “Not a chance,” he said, “things are just getting interesting.”

More impressions from the staff on five more years of The Dis Brimstone-Daily Pitchfork follow over the rest of your week end.

INDIANA GOVERNOR MIKE PENCE ORDERS NEEDLE EXCHANGE PROGRAM IN SCOTT COUNTY TO COMBAT HIV EPIDEMIC AMONG INTRAVENOUS DRUG USERS

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

On 20 March 2015, the Indiana State Department of Health issued the following press release:

INDIANAPOLIS—State health officials reported today a total of 55 confirmed cases of HIV and 13 additional preliminary positive cases related to the outbreak in southeastern Indiana that was announced in February. All cases are linked to injection drug abuse of the prescription opioid painkiller, opana, with some individuals also reporting sexual intercourse as a possible mode of transmission.

“I am deeply troubled by this outbreak, and stopping it is a top priority for our department,” said State Health Commissioner Jerome Adams, M.D., M.P.H. “We are engaging local, state, and national partners to determine where we can most effectively focus our efforts. Extra care is being taken to invest resources in getting people off drugs and into treatment, since drug abuse is the clear driving force behind this outbreak.”

The Indiana State Department of Health is working closely with local health officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drug treatment facilities, local medical providers, and other State agencies to contain the outbreak and get HIV positive individuals treatment. Specifically, the State Health Department has requested a medical team from CDC to help with following up on contacts of HIV positive individuals and analyzing data. The team, which will arrive in Scott County on Monday, consists of two medical doctors and one epidemiologist.

Other efforts include the creation of a public awareness campaign created specifically in response to this outbreak, called You Are Not Alone, which focuses on drug abuse, safe sex, needle disposal and HIV testing and treatment. Viewers are encouraged to contact the HIV services hotline or addiction hotline for local treatment and care resources. The campaign will include digital and social media ads, billboards along the Interstate 65 corridor, radio, and will be featured in the free local paper, The Giveaway. Social media ads will begin today, with the rest of the campaign rolling out over the next two weeks and lasting three months. The campaign can be seen in southeastern Indiana counties.

State health officials recommend that all Hoosiers know their HIV status. The best way for an individual to learn their HIV status is by getting tested by a health care professional. Hoosiers in the southeastern portion of the state, especially individuals who have engaged in high-risk behavior such as needle sharing and unprotected sex, are advised to get tested and then re-tested after about two to three months because HIV can take up to three months to appear in a person’s system.

To help reduce risk of HIV infection, avoid:
· injection drug use;
· sharing or re-using needles;
· engaging in unprotected sex; and,
· engaging in sex with commercial sex workers.

For HIV testing locations and information about HIV Care Coordination, individuals are encouraged to call the ISDH HIV Services Hotline at (866) 588-4948.

Individuals seeking help with substance abuse should call the national 24-hour addiction hotline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357). This hotline provides confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental health and/or substance use disorders. This service provides referrals to local treatment facilities, support groups, and community-based organizations. Callers can also order free publications and other information.

To learn more about the link between HIV infection and drug abuse, visit the National Institute on Drug Abuse at http://hiv.drugabuse.gov/index.html.

Visit the Indiana State Department of Health at http://www.StateHealth.in.gov. Follow the Indiana State Department of Health on Twitter at @StateHealthIN and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/isdh1.

Hoosiers who do not have health care coverage or access to a doctor are encouraged to check availability for the new Healthy Indiana Plan—HIP 2.0—by visiting http://www.HIP.IN.gov or calling 1-877-GET-HIP-9.

Today the number of confirmed cases of HIV from the abuse of prescription opioids has become such a crisis that Governor Mike Pence has ordered a needle exchange program to begin in southeastern Indiana. The epicenter of this crisis appears to be Scott County, Indiana with a population of 24,181. In this county 80 cases of HIV have been confirmed. This comes in state where HIV has been criminalized and often, for years, demonized as a disease of the gay community.

Governor Pence, long an opponent of needle exchanges and the local authorities in the mostly white and rural southeast Indiana are complicit in this epidemic, which could have been prevented when the heroin use in that region began to spike in the late winter of 2014. Recently, the Indiana State House busied itself with drafting a religious freedom bill while its citizens were under assault from the disease being spread through the sharing of needles. We, Ourselves, of the Collective understand that those in power wish to cater to the fears of conservative voters who feel that their ‘way of life” is being threatened by the social changes of current in America, but this case of nearsightedness is unprecedented.

Scott County, Indiana is a special case in this matter. It is overwhelmingly white, conservative and middle class. there are thousands of young people in this county getting the medications of their parents and grandparents, illegally, which is leading to illness and death. Similar conditions exist in major cities in Indiana, but not to the degree that We see in Scott County today. Now, when this subset of individuals are in peril, all the forces of governmental power have come to bear on the problem. Even Governor Pence who abhors the concept of needle exchanges has been forced to turn his back on a tenet of his conservative ideology to save the children and grandchildren of his base. So he has turned to the federal government in the form of the CDC for help and they have arrived. The solutions to this problem are ones that any socialist or Progressive would understand and knows would work.

Immigration. Big thorny tropic right? Not really because America the country of my birth is a nation of immigrants. Virtually every person who lives in America today can trace their lineage back to another country were they to go back four centuries. Some came from Europe, some from Africa some from Asia. Only the Native Americans, which the Europeans treated horribly I might add, [and to treat horribly continue to in the state of South Dakota] can claim to have a real birthright to the land that is America now.

With that said an understood let’s look at the latest far right panic on immigration. The panic has been caused by an initiative in the form of the Task Force on New Americans which has been around since 2006 when it was formed in the George W. Bush administration. This version of the TFNA had as it’s chief goal the assimilation of new Americans into American society which I think is a great idea. I can’t say I remember any howls from the Right back in 2006 or 2007 or 2008 when the TFNA was doing its work.

Fast forward to 21 November 2014 when the sitting President revived the TFNA to do exactly the same thing. Here’s the full body of the executive memorandum from President Barack H. Obama via WhiteHouse.gov:

November 21, 2014

MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

SUBJECT: Creating Welcoming Communities and Fully Integrating Immigrants and Refugees

Our country has long been a beacon of hope and opportunity for people from around the world. Nearly 40 million foreign-born residents nationwide contribute to their communities every day, including 3 million refugees who have resettled here since 1975. These new Americans significantly improve our economy. They make up 13 percent of the population, but are over 16 percent of the labor force and start 28 percent of all new businesses. Moreover, immigrants or their children have founded more than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies, which collectively employ over 10 million people worldwide and generate annual revenues of $4.2 trillion.

By focusing on the civic, economic, and linguistic integration of new Americans, we can help immigrants and refugees in the United States contribute fully to our economy and their communities. Civic integration provides new Americans with security in their rights and liberties. Economic integration empowers immigrants to be self-sufficient and allows them to give back to their communities and contribute to economic growth. English language acquisition allows new Americans to attain employment or career advancement and be more active civic participants.

Our success as a Nation of immigrants is rooted in our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating newcomers into the fabric of our country. It is important that we develop a Federal immigrant integration strategy that is innovative and competitive with those of other industrialized nations and supports mechanisms to ensure that our Nation’s diverse people are contributing to society to their fullest potential.

Therefore, I am establishing a White House Task Force on New Americans, an interagency effort to identify and support State and local efforts at integration that are working and to consider how to expand and replicate successful models. The Task Force, which will engage with community, business, and faith leaders, as well as State and local elected officials, will help determine additional steps the Federal Government can take to ensure its programs and policies are serving diverse communities that include new Americans.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order as follows:

Section 1. White House Task Force on New Americans. (a) There is established a White House Task Force on New Americans (Task Force) to develop a coordinated Federal strategy to better integrate new Americans into communities and support State and local efforts to do the same. It shall be co-chaired by the Director of the Domestic Policy Council and Secretary of Homeland Security, or their designees. In addition to the Co-Chairs, the Task Force shall consist of the following members:

(i) the Secretary of State;

(ii) the Attorney General;

(iii) the Secretary of Agriculture;

(iv) the Secretary of Commerce;

(v) the Secretary of Labor;

(vi) the Secretary of Health and Human Services;

(vii) the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development;

(viii) the Secretary of Transportation;

(ix) the Secretary of Education;

(x) the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation for National and Community Service;

(xi) the Director of the Office of Management and Budget;

(xii) the Administrator of the Small Business Administration;

(xiii) the Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement;

(xiv) the Director of the National Economic Council;

(xv) the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; and

(xvi) the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

(b) A member of the Task Force may designate a senior-level official who is from the member’s department, agency, or office, and is a full-time officer or employee of the Federal Government, to perform day-to-day Task Force functions of the member. At the direction of the Co-Chairs, the Task Force may establish subgroups consisting exclusively of Task Force members or their designees under this subsection, as appropriate.

(c) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall appoint an Executive Director who will determine the Task Force’s agenda, convene regular meetings of the Task Force, and supervise work under the direction of the Co-Chairs. The Department of Homeland Security shall provide funding and administrative support for the Task Force to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations. Each executive department or agency shall bear its own expenses for participating in the Task Force.

Sec. 2. Mission and Function of the Task Force. (a) The Task Force shall, consistent with applicable law, work across executive departments and agencies to:

(i) review the policies and programs of all relevant executive departments and agencies to ensure they are responsive to the needs of new Americans and the receiving communities in which they reside, and identify ways in which such programs can be used to increase meaningful engagement between new Americans and the receiving community;

(ii) identify and disseminate best practices at the State and local level;

(iii) provide technical assistance, training, or other support to existing Federal grantees to increase their coordination and capacity to improve long-term integration and foster welcoming community climates;

BARACK OBAMA

At first blush there’s not much different in this TFNA directive than in the mission of the TFNA in the Bush era. Of course you all live in the golden age of political, racial and ideological polarization which breeds panic in the side that knows it’s the dinosaur and the big shiny ball in the sky isn’t the sun it’s a meteor. This brings me to a woman from Maryland named Sue Payne. Sue Payne is a talk radio co host on a 50,000 watt day/20,000 watt night radio station WCBM 680 AM in Baltimore. The station is dominated and has been for decades by conservative talk radio. Rush Limbaugh, Dr Laura Schlesinger, G. Gordon Liddy and Sean Hannity all have been heard on the station over the past 20 years. Mark Levin joined the station’s lineup in the spring of 2006. In 2009, WCBM switched from ABC News on the hour to Fox News.

Republican Maryland State Deleagte Pat McDonough is the host of the eponymous show that airs on Saturday nights from 20h 00m to 22h 00m and Sue Payne who is his co host says she was “accidentally” invited to a series of phonecalls of the Obama version of TFNA where means and methods of welcoming new Americans were discussed. My first question wasn’t about the TFNA I knew what that was because I remembered it from the Bush administration. My initial question was, “Who the fuck is Sue Payne?” followed quickly by “How the fuck did she get invited to a Cabinet level phone call about immigration?”

Well for the record I am skeptical that Payne was actually on the phone call or if she has manufactured this out of whole cloth for her own benefit. I would like to think the Obama administration just doesn’t willy nilly give out their conference call numbers but if they do I’d love to chime in form time to time. The best way I could describe Sue Payne is that she is a conservative community organizer.

She is described as a “political activist” in the Washington Times article written by Meredith Somers in May 2013. Payne sought to have Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act sent to the voters in a referendum by gathering 55,000 signatures of registered voters. This anti-gun control effort failed.

This was by far not the first foray into political activism by the mysterious Sue Payne. In 2011 she lead a charge to fight the Maryland Dream Act a law that would allow undocumented immigrant children to pay instate tuition in Maryland colleges. The voters of the state of Maryland approved the legislation in a referendum in November 2012.

From Sue Payne’s LinkedIn page she is listed as an “opposition researcher.” This is a curiosity. The question remains to be asked, “Who does Sue Payne work for?”
