I live in Harlan a ruby red Trump county they claim they want to clean up the government when they don’t even have the nerve to clean up their own communities. They allow a few drug deals and junkies run rough shod over their communities while they cower in fear.
They buy their guns in bulk not for protection but because it makes them feel better about themselves. The hide behind their computers and cell phones and they are loud and you would think they are a one bad asses. But let something bad happen in their communities and watch how fast they crawl back in their shells not to be heard from .
Harlan detention center is nothing but a revolving door for junkies drug dealers and thugs. My advice to rural America until you are ready to clean up your own back yard and communities don’t be trying to tell us you are going to make America great again because you are lying out your teeth .
Since January 6th 2021 millions of posts that did not violate Facebook rules were removed from Facebook and millions were penalized for these posts and Facebook refused to show the people how and why such posts violated which rules.
We first noticed this change in Facebook right after the insurrection the term (White Trash) which had been used since the CREATION of Facebook till the insurrection was deemed a proper term for Facebook and free speech.
After January 6th the term ( White Trash) some how violated their rules and tens of thousands of posts and comments were removed and millions were put in Facebook Jail for a period of time. Facebook even went back years and checked peoples posts and comments and found them in violation.
The tech nerds at Facebook are writing programs for Facebook that they themselves do not know the side effects are. My small group of over 500 called Kick Azz News as of today has been deactivated over a 100 times for violating the so called community standards but every single time we appeal and have won what the hell is going on at Facebook.
The fact is Facebook has set themselves up as GOD of the internet they will decide what you can and can not say regardless if they violated Facebook standards . What Facebook has done is silenced free speech of millions of Americans while allowing false information to be published on their platform in the name of free speech.
Here is one test we ran on Facebook we found a post on a profile we thought violated the rules and we reported it to only get a message from Facebook saying it did not violate their rules. So we copied the post and placed it on our own wall and Facebook removed it and gave us three days in jail for posting a post that went against community standards.
As of today Facebook has evolved into a monster that everyone of us will have to deal with on a personal level the tech nerds at Facebook got it wrong and need to learn how to write code that actually works and has no ill side effects.
Someone needs to launch a platform like Facebook but keep it simple to use we have one platform called liker but it is just to damned complicated to use. I myself have thought about leaving Facebook but i decided to stay and fight for our rights of free speech.
My friends we have went through the looking glass in this country The Texas law will allow other states to follow their law. The fact the scotus let this law go into effect tells us exactly the plans of the scotus to overturn roe v wade without saying a word.
Texas has a ban on masks and mandating covid shots saying the health of a person should be left up to the person but yet Texas wants to control every vagina in these united states.
Ladies if you are not mad as hell then you need to get there or you will see your rights disappear in a blink of a eye. Republicans call abortion murder but i am here to tell you there is a huge list of things that would fall under the title of murder if they want to go down that road.
We scoffed at the idea America would elect a Nincompoop like Trump for president.
We scoffed at the idea the Republican party would become the party of insurrection .
We scoffed at the idea That roe v wade would ever be overturned and or restricted to the point it literally bans abortion.
We scoffed at the idea that republican congress people would side with insurrection.
We scoffed at the idea that republicans would succeed in suppressing voters and enacting Jim crow laws.
My friends we had better get our heads out of our butts before the scoffing of a civil war becomes reality. If Trump republicans are not defeated in all levels of government we will suffer more than we ever imagined. I could go on with the list above but i think the point has been made.
When voting your conscience out weighs voting to put a roof over your families head and food on the table for your children and what’s in the best interest of your friends neighbors and the poor that’s when you get red rural republican counties living in poverty.
50% of school children in poverty stricken counties live day to day in poverty. One such county in Kentucky is Harlan County where 32% percent of its citizens live in poverty. My friends we have Joe Biden to thank for a 25% increase in food stamps for these children in poverty.
If breaking the poverty in these rural counties means breaking the republican strong hold in these counties then we must do so. If parents refuse to do what is right for their children then it is up to us to bring their failure to the front of the debate.
Harlan County Kentucky is 95.9% white African American 2.1% The population is about 27 thousand 31.1% of the population lives in poverty. Per capita income 16,500 dollars per year. About 40% 11 thousand of Harlan Countains voted 85.35% voted for Donald Trump while only 13.62% voted for Joe Biden. There are about 20 thousand registered voters in Harlan Democrats 14,500 Republican 5,300 other 550. About one third of the population recieves a snap benifits about 7,000 recieves SSI benifits the unemployment rate is about 10%. Only 72% of Harlan countains has a high school or higher education which would put about 50% of Harlan Countains only has high school dipoloma that leaves 12% with a less than high school education.
My friends Harlan County is now a typical red republican county even though Democrats hold a three to one edge in registered voters it is clear from this data Democrats in name only crossed over and votes republican. The fact so many live in poverty and still votes republican is mind blowing. The fact so many vote against putting food on their table and roofs over their heads just can’t be explained but i am sure the answer is in the data somewhere.
As a part of the 2020 Doha Agreement, Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo made a deal with the Taliban to have America leave Afghanistan by May 1, 2021, lift sanctions against the group, and have 5,000 Taliban prisoners released, in exchange for a 3-month cease-fire. Those prisoners now control Afghanistan. This was after Obama, Hillary and the Iran deal. Used to be, America didn’t make deals with terrorists. But I guess that all changed when a self perceived “genius” dilettante got into the White House.
Right here in the United States women are having to fight for control of their own bodies yet the Afghan women will lose all rights they had under Taliban control. As a woman I can only imagine how they must be feeling after living a liberated life to have to lose total control to men.
I truly believe if the United States had trained 100,000 Afghan women to the Afghan army the Taliban would have been defeated years ago. My heart goes out to the Afghan women I just hope we continue to fight for their rights and never stop until they have them.
My friends until the Afghanistan people decide they want to be free from the Taliban it is not going to happen. Russia spent a decade in Afghanistan and they could not win. Many of us knew the day we went into Afghanistan we were fighting a campaign we could not win.
Joe Biden did the right thing by pulling out of Afghanistan if they were not ready to fight for their country against a weaker force then ten more years would have never made a difference. We have lost too many in this campaign as it is.
Martin Luther King said it best GOD did not anoint the Unite States to be the policemen of the world. Try as we may we can not will a country to stand up for itself unless the people are ready. Let us not forget a republican put us in Afghanistan and a Democrat got us out .
My friends people can not have it both ways they can not believe on one hand it is ok to take away a woman rights to control her own body but on the other hand support restrictions to the reproductive rights of a woman.
The fact is many states already has restrictions on a woman’s right to choose what happens to their own bodies. In my minds eye these people refusing to wear masks and refusing to take their shots are speaking out of both sides of their mouth for them this is all political as far as I can see.
