    THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. I’m hoping that someone here can Tweet this…put it on your FB pages…. Sign the petition, too. Corporations and big business are KILLING our Earth and historical and sacred places…


    Superior’s Oak Flat is notable for its sacred significance to the San Carlos Apache and other sNative American tribes. It is home to some of the state’s most unique religious, cultural and archeological habitats.

    The Grand Canyon serves as not only an expansive natural grandeur, but also a sacred site for certain Native American tribes and an internationally renowned national park.

    The Trust’s list says the Canyon is threatened by mining and resort proposals that could disrupt the region’s main source of water.

    Here is the link for concerned citizens everywhere to sign the petition: https://secure2.convio.net/nthp/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=972 ( This is the National Trust for Historic Preservation site)

    Hello Dakota,

    My prayers are with you and the family. I believe that the precious child is at peace now with a loving and merciful God.
    I pray that you and the family will soon experience the same peace.

    I just read on Shaun’s twitter site that Mrs. Pinckney and one of the daughters was at the bible study and hid under a desk & called 911. Oh Lord, have mercy.

      Yes, with her 6yrs old daughter……at Emmanuel AME, but inside Rev State Sen Pinckney’s office. She called 911 and was told to stay on the line until help came.

      Hello retired AG Holder. You are missed. Hope you are resting well. Now, get back in the trenches! 🙂

        Very interesting that he can say this alongside the active Justice Dept investigation…and in conflict with Comey’s initial assessment. I’m glad he’s putting “domestic terrorist” out there. It needs to be repeated.

    Homegrown Radicals More Deadly Than Jihadis in U.S.

    Homegrown Terrorism

    In the United States since Sept. 11, terrorist attacks by antigovernment, racist and other nonjihadist extremists have killed nearly twice as many people as those by Islamic jihadists.

    Heckler thrown out of WH event……

  11. June 24, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    The President had the heckler escorted out, not in my house. I invited you into my home and you come here disrespecting me, oh no, no, no! Escort the heckler out.

      The above tweet by Holder is in response to the stupid FBI director saying the Charleston massacre was not an act of terrorism.

    On Wednesday, an order was handed down by the state Supreme Court saying that Gosnell has been replaced for “administrative purposes of the summary courts” in Charleston County.

    • June 24, 2015 at 5:38 pm

      Good that Judge was replace. I am not blaming the Roof family, but I do wonder why they didn’t warn someone about that racists son of theirs. Why give the drop out bum money to buy a gun?.

      They must have heard the wingnuts and righties were coming. Goos decision especially since my President will be there.

  18. June 24, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Right there with you Mr President. If this fool is eating the food and guzzling the booze in the ‘house’ and can’t show
    some modicum of respect then throw his ass out. You are on a roll Sir. I’m loving it . #BucketList.

    I missed the heckler. VIDEO PLEASE!!

  21. June 24, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    Rev. Pinckney, two little girls left without a father just because of racists hate. How sickening.

      My president truly has no more fucks to give; I love it. This fool gets invited to the house for food, booze and celebration and he shows his ass? This is even more egregious because PBO is the best ally that the immigration fight has. I also like how another person yelled out “We love you” when that fool was escorted out.

    Glad to see VP Biden attended the LGBT reception. I don’t recall him attending previous LGBT receptions, but I could well be wrong on that.

    Interesting that President Obama began with a big shout-out to Leader Pelosi 🙂

    Pelosi Statement on Senate Passage of Trade Promotion Authority
    Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Senate voted to send Trade Promotion Authority legislation to the President:

    “Throughout the debate on Fast Track, House Democrats have been united in our concern over the impact trade agreements will have on America’s hard-working families.

    “Any trade agreement must be judged by whether it will create good-paying jobs, whether it will increase the paychecks of American families, and whether it recognizes the fundamental connection between commerce and climate. We know we must put America’s workers first for our economy to grow and our nation to succeed.

    “The Senate’s final passage of Trade Promotion Authority ends one phase, but it does not end our fight for working families. Now, our focus must be on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and House Democrats will be shining a bright light on the provisions of TPP as the negotiations proceed. The American people deserve a high level of transparency to make their own judgements about this trade agreement.”
