My High School Had It’s Homecoming Friday Night–Some Things Stay the Same …

… AND SOME DON’T.

After I graduated, my high school was forcibly integrated due to pressure from the government in Washington. Before integration, blacks had their own school, Violet Consolidated, which offered K-12 educations to the 5 percent of St. Bernard Parish that was black.

The percent black is up to 20 to 30 percent now because George W. Bush sneaked thousands of blacks into the parish after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The parish had been almost 100 percent underwater, with residents banned from re-entering the parish after the evacuation. While everyone was gone, Bush brought in blacks and FEMA trailers for them to live in. I think that new government subsidized apartments were later built as the blacks moved out of trailers. I haven’t been in the parish since the 1980s so I don’t know all the details.

This year’s homecoming queen looks like a typical St. Bernard Parish girl. She’s dark because the parish was settled by Canary Islanders from Spain, who had Spanish last names and were dark complexioned. In St. Bernard, some very, very dark people are considered white.

It looks like one black girl made it to the Homecoming Queen’s Court. The football team looks heavily black though.

I’m glad I don’t have to witness blacks in the school that near poverty level white working class people built with their hard-earned money. The parish was heavily industrialized.

One of our neighbors was totally vaporized when he fell into a vat of molten Aluminum at the big Kaiser Aluminum works, leaving behind a widow and young son. The big Tenneco oil refinery routinely blew up every year or two, with some white man getting injured or dying.

The working class whites wanted better for their children. Most of them that I grew up with left.

Woman claims (((Roman Polanski))) molested her at age 10; wants him kicked out of Academy

MARRIANE BERNARD ABOUT THE TIME SHE WAS ALLEGEDLY MOLESTED BY ROMAN POLANSKI.

The five feet tall Polish Jew Roman Polanski now has a fifth accuser. He, like Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein, are giving Hollywood a bad name.

Not that it ever had a good name to begin with.

Fox News

A California artist claimed Roman Polanski “sexually molested” her when she was 10 years old and has started a petition to get the Polish director booted from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Marianne Barnard wrote in her Care 2 petition that the controversial director molested her after she was photographed by him at Will Rogers State Beach in Southern California. The artist claimed the director asked her to take off her bikini top then bottoms before he molested her.

Barnard also claimed her mother, who was present at the photo shoot, arranged the ordeal. The artist believed her mother was paid to walk away from the incident so she could pay for a Ph.D.

“After it happened, I didn’t say anything to anyone. I wish that I had been brave enough to speak out, tell a friend, their parent or even a teacher,” the artist wrote. “Maybe if I had, the other girls wouldn’t have been molested by Polanski (a convicted statutory rapist) also. That’s a terrible heartache to carry.”

Barnard asked online users to sign the petition to have Polanski’s board membership revoked from the Academy. More than 12,500 people have signed the petition as of early Saturday afternoon.

She said the petition was motivated by the Academy’s decision last week to expel disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein from the board following a string of sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against the movie mogul.

“It is a small consequence for him considering his crimes and the great amount of harm he has caused me and his other victims,” Barnard wrote.

Barnard listed the four other women who have come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against the contentious director.

“We’ve stayed silent until now. We feared. But, we can no longer be silent and allow this man who sexually assaulted little girls to enjoy fame, recognition or an honored place in history,” Barnard wrote.

Barnard is the latest woman to come forward with allegations against the Oscar-winning director. Earlier this month, Renate Langer, a German woman, said she was assaulted by Polanski when she was a teenager in 1972.

Polanski won the Oscar in 2003. You can see despicable Meryl Streep give him a STANDING OVATION at the 1:10 mark in the video.

Damn Hollywood!

In August, another woman, who identified herself only as Robin, said the director sexually victimized her in 1973 when she was 16.

Polanski, 84, served 42 days in prison before fleeing to France from the U.S. after pleading guilty to having unlawful sex with a minor in California. His victim, Samantha Geimer, was 13 at the time.

Geimer said Polanski drugged, raped and sodomized her at “Chinatown” actor Jack Nicholson’s Hollywood Hills home in 1977.

This summer, Geimer asked a Los Angeles judge to drop the 40 year old case against Polanski, who can only travel between France, Switzerland and Poland.

Trump Plans to Release Classified JFK Documents

President Trump should see to it that all documents are released on October 26. It’s reasonable to expect that back in 63 the CIA and FBI conspired to destroy at least some evidence in conflict with LBJ’s official story.

CNN offers one assassination researcher’s thoughts in their coverage. Gerald Leo Posner is a pro-semite with a Jewish father. Posner’s view is that Oswald killed Kennedy by himself.

CNN

President Donald Trump said Saturday he intends to allow the release of classified government documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy “subject to the receipt of further information.”

Trump’s tweet comes as he is staring down an October 26 deadline set in law by Congress mandating the public release of the still-secret documents — including FBI and CIA files — barring any action by the President to block the release of certain documents.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump said, appearing to leave open the possibility that some documents could still be withheld.

A White House official told reporters Saturday: “The President believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise.”

Republican members of Congress, including Senate judiciary committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, have urged Trump to allow the full release of the documents.

“No reason 2 keep hidden anymore,” Grassley tweeted earlier this month. “Time 2 let American ppl + historians draw own conclusions.”

Historians who have studied the assassination do not believe the documents will lead to any bombshell new conclusions in the Kennedy assassination, but the documents could shed more light on facets of the investigation and Oswald’s mysterious trip to Mexico City weeks before the assassination. Some have expressed concerns that the documents could be embarrassing to Mexico and damaging to US-Mexico relations.

Trump can withhold the release of certain documents if he believes their release could pose harm to US intelligence, law enforcement, the military or US foreign relations.

“There’s going to be no smoking gun in there,” Gerald Posner, the author of “Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK,” told CNN’s Michael Smerconish. “But anybody who thinks this is going to turn the case on its head and suddenly show that there were three or four shooters at Dealey Plaza — it’s not the case.”

“Oswald did it alone,” Posner continued. “But what the files are doing and why they’re important to come out is they fill in the history of the case and show us how the FBI and CIA repeatedly hid the evidence.”

Posner said that the conspiracy theories about the CIA and mob working together to assassinate a head of state are true — but the target was Cuban leader Fidel Castro, not Kennedy.

“They tried seven times and they couldn’t even wound him. … They couldn’t get rid of Castro, but somehow these same guys who were an ‘F’ there pulled off the perfect crime in Dallas, and 54 years later we can find not a shred of evidence about it. I just don’t buy it,” he said.

Ken Hughes, a presidential researcher at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, told CNN the files could shed light on the US involvement in the attempts to assassinate Castro as well as the US-approved coup of South Vietnamese leader Ngô Đình Diệm in 1963.
“There’s a lot for conventional historians — we non-conspiracy theorists — to look forward to,” he said.

Wikipedia offers a lengthy article on assassination conspiracy theories, although I cannot vouch for its accuracy or completeness. More theorizing will be happening after the document dump this week.

Cops investigating racist video that shows students simulating sex

White youths acting stupidly captured their stupidity on Snapchat footage.

White boys on a middle school football team are seen in a hazing type of activity that involved demeaning black youths, who also are apparently on the team. Watch a TV news report, above, that shows some of what went on, along with condemnation by black parents.

Rather than engage in foolishness, racially aware white youths should practice racial solidarity, helping each other advance in school so that as adults they can gain control of the legal system, higher education, and the entertainment industry. We’re in an undeclared race war and we need leaders at the top in government and industry who reject egalitarianism.

New York Daily News

Police are investigating clips shared on Snapchat that see white student athletes from a Virginia school pinning down black students and simulating sex while shouting racially charged comments.

Parents were outraged over the incident, which occurred in the Short Pump Middle School locker room on Oct. 13, while advocate groups have called for a federal investigation, KSLA reported.

The clip in question starts off with a simple question: “Ever wonder what happens in a football locker room?”

A football player’s parent — who was not identified — told WTVR all the black football players were held down on the floor while their white teammates “dry humped them” and shouted racist comments.

“What’s up with you blacks,” one student can be heard saying in the video.

Another says: “We gonna f— the black outta these African-American children from Uganda.”

In an open letter to parents, officials explained the school had been aware of the video since Monday, prompting many to wonder why they waited so long to take action.

Principal Thomas McAuley called the actions in the Snapchat clips “appalling, disturbing and inexcusable,” adding he hopes to put procedures in place to prevent such things from occurring again in the future.

“We will include staff, parent, administrator and student representatives in this dialogue,” the letter reads. “Our hope is to use this very unfortunate event as a meaningful learning opportunity.”

The Short Pump Middle School football team has already forfeited the rest of their season in light of the footage. And while they will no longer play any other games this season, officials said they will continue to hold practices.

Outrage Building as SC Police Taser 86 Year Old Combative Negro, Putting Him in Intensive Care

ALBERT CHATFIELD, AGE 86. HAS TROUBLE FUNCTIONING SOMETIMES.

No, the outrage isn’t because a Negro had the nerve to attack police officers, whose race has not been verified. The outrage is because the police used a taser on him.

I guess next time, to save trouble, they should just shoot the SOB?

According to Albert Chatfield’s fambly, he dindu nuffins.

Herald Online

WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC
An 86-year-old South Carolina man was in intensive care Thursday after being shocked with a Taser by a Kingstree police officer during a traffic stop, according to an attorney representing the motorist.

Albert Chatfield was taken to McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence on Monday with a broken nose, lacerations to his face and head and bleeding in three spots on his brain, said state Rep. Justin Bamberg, an attorney who is representing Chatfield.

Kingstree Police Chief James Barr Jr. said an officer used the Taser after Chatfield exited his vehicle, began yelling at officers, and started stepping backward towards traffic.

Officers stopped Chatfield after a 911 caller reported just before 8 a.m. Monday that a driver in a white SUV was tailgating a car and not allowing the driver to turn, Barr told The State newspaper on Thursday. Two officers in separate patrol cars spotted Chatfield’s white Ford Explorer in the town limits.

Barr said he would not identify the officers involved, citing the ongoing investigation. However, officer Stephen Sweikata wrote in an incident report that he pursued Chatfield. A copy of the incident report was provided to The State newspaper.

Chatfield is black. The report does not indicate the race of the two Kingstree officers.

Sweikata saw Chatfield’s SUV and started to make a U-turn to follow him, but Chatfield made a U-turn to avoid the officer, the report states.

“Mr. Chatfield took them on a quarter-of-a-mile chase before he stopped,” Barr said. “Once his vehicle came to a stop, he jumped out of his vehicle and headed toward law enforcement in a rage. Officers were giving him commands to stand down and stop.”

Chatfield continued yelling at the officers on the side of the road and “took up a fighting stance” against Sweikata, the report states.

“He was just hollering, really not making sense,” Barr said.

Sweikata deployed his Taser on Chatfield, with the prongs striking Chatfield in the chest and rib areas, the report states. Barr said the officer shocked Chatfield for one five-second cycle.

Chatfield fell onto his back, was handcuffed and moved away from traffic, according to Barr and the incident report. He appeared to be disoriented but was still responsive and communicating when EMS arrived, Barr said.

The incident report describes Chatfield as 5-foot-9 and 173 pounds. When asked why the officers did not physically subdue Chatfield, Barr said the Taser was the last resort because of Chatfield’s stance toward officers and the danger he posed to himself by stepping closer to traffic. No charges have been filed.

Bamberg, the attorney representing Chatfield, said his client was not armed and never fought with the officers.

“Unless the officers reasonably felt that Mr. Chatfield was a threat of serious bodily injury to themselves or to a third party, they should not have tased him in the first place,” he said.

He noted that the incident report says Chatfield was “walking/jogging” backward in the lanes of traffic, and questioned how he could be aggressive with officers if he was backing away from them.

“It’s my understanding he was never close enough to touch anybody, nor did he act like he was about to attack anybody,” Bamberg said. “He just wasn’t listening.”

Chatfield was taken to Williamsburg Regional Hospital and later airlifted to McLeod Regional Medical Center.

At McLeod, Chatfield was put into a medically-induced coma, which he is now out of, Bamberg said. He cannot talk beyond mumbles and groans, and has a pacemaker which doctors are still testing to see if it was damaged by the Taser.

“Him being tased did not cause the medical condition that he was having,” Barr said. “He was having some preexisting conditions that the family knew some of.”

Chatfield’s daughter told a doctor at Williamsburg Regional that her father “had acted out with her” Saturday, and that she believed he was not taking his prescribed medication, according to the police incident report.

“At 86 years old, he’s in his right mind most of the time but he will also have periods of confusion or paranoia,” Bamberg said. “That is what they are referring to with regard to his condition.”

Each officer was wearing a body camera that was working and activated during the traffic stop, Barr said. There also is dashcam footage of the incident, he said.

Barr said no footage will be released while the case is under investigation. The State newspaper has requested a copy of the footage under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.

Kingstree, a town of about 3,200 residents, is located about 80 miles east of Columbia.

NY Times: O’Reilly Paid Lis Wiehl $32 Million to Settle Sexual Harassment Claim Prior to Fox Contract Renewal

What happened between former Fox News analyst Lis Wiehl and Bill O’Reilly is known only to them. O’Reilly certainly has shown on a number of occasions that he’s a jerk.

But $32 million given to a woman who suffered no physical or mental impairment because she had to deal with a jerk is obscenely excessive.

New York Times via NOLA

O’Reilly settled new harassment claims, then Fox renewed his contract

By The New York Times
Last January, six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal, the network’s top-rated host at the time, Bill O’Reilly, struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations, according to two people briefed on the matter — an extraordinarily large amount for such cases.

Although the deal has not been previously made public, the network’s parent company, Twenty-First Century Fox, acknowledges it was aware of the woman’s complaints about O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter.

It was at least the sixth agreement — and by far the largest — made by either O’Reilly or the company to settle harassment allegations against him. Despite that record, Twenty-First Century Fox began contract negotiations with O’Reilly, and in February granted him a four-year extension that paid $25 million a year.

Interviews with people familiar with the settlement and documents obtained by The New York Times show how the company tried and ultimately failed to contain the second wave of a sexual harassment crisis that initially burst into public view the previous summer and cost the Fox News chairman, Roger Ailes, and eventually O’Reilly their jobs.

In January, the reporting shows, Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James, the top executives at Twenty-First Century Fox, made a business calculation to stand by O’Reilly despite his most recent, and potentially most explosive, harassment dispute.

Their decision came as the company was trying to convince its employees, its board and the public that it had cleaned up the network’s workplace culture. At the same time, they were determined to hold on to O’Reilly, whose value to the network increased after the departure of another prominent host, Megyn Kelly.

But by April, the Murdochs decided to jettison O’Reilly as some of the settlements became public and posed a significant threat to their business empire.

Early that month, The Times reported on five settlements involving O’Reilly, leading advertisers to boycott his show and spawning protests calling for his ouster. About the same time, the O’Reilly settlements arose as an issue in Twenty-First Century Fox’s attempt to buy the European satellite company Sky.

In addition, federal prosecutors who had been investigating the network’s handling of sexual harassment complaints against Ailes had asked for material related to allegations involving O’Reilly, according to an internal Fox email obtained by The Times.

“Their legal theory has been that we hid the fact that we had a problem with Roger,” Gerson Zweifach, Fox’s general counsel, wrote in the email, referring to the prosecutors and Ailes, “and now it will be applied to O’Reilly, and they will insist on full knowledge of all complaints about O’Reilly’s behavior in the workplace, regardless of who settled them.”

He warned the Murdochs that they should expect details from the January settlement to become public. Six days later, O’Reilly was fired.

In a statement, Twenty-First Century Fox said it was not privy to the amount of the settlement and regarded O’Reilly’s January settlement, which was reached with a 15-year Fox News analyst named Lis Wiehl, as a personal issue between the two of them.

LIS WIEHL.

Regarding O’Reilly’s contract extension, the company said Fox News “surely would have wanted to renew” O’Reilly’s contract, noting that “he was the biggest star in cable TV.”

It emphasized that provisions were added to the new contract that allowed for his dismissal if new allegations or other relevant information arose. “The company subsequently acted based on the terms of this contract,” the statement said.

In an interview Wednesday, O’Reilly, at times combative and defiant, said there was no merit to any of the allegations against him. “I never mistreated anyone,” he said, adding that he had resolved matters privately because he wanted to protect his children from the publicity.

“It’s politically and financially motivated,” he said of the public outcry over the allegations against him, “and we can prove it with shocking information, but I’m not going to sit here in a courtroom for a year and a half and let my kids get beaten up every single day of their lives by a tabloid press that would sit there, and you know it.”

He declined to specifically address questions about the settlement with Wiehl or any others.

O’Reilly’s lawyer, Fredric S. Newman, described his client’s relationship with Wiehl as an 18-year friendship in which she at times gave him legal advice.

Asked about the allegation of a nonconsensual sexual relationship, a representative for O’Reilly, Mark Fabiani, said that Twenty-First Century Fox was “well aware” Wiehl had signed a sworn affidavit “renouncing all allegations against him,” adding that after receiving the document Fox News offered O’Reilly “a record breaking contract.”

Wiehl’s $32 million deal dwarfs other previously known sexual harassment settlements at Fox News. The largest of those was the $20 million payout former host Gretchen Carlson received after she sued Ailes in July 2016.

The settlement with Wiehl was more than three times the amount of any of O’Reilly’s previously known deals; in 2004, he had settled a lawsuit with a producer, Andrea Mackris, for about $9 million. Publicly known harassment settlements involving O’Reilly have totaled about $45 million.

Lost Dog Has Big NYC Adventure Before Ending Up in Deli

REUNITED!

Wow! Gwen Wunderlich got the plane to turn around so she could go look for her lost dog.

This story is being widely reported Saturday night. I’ve pulled in photos from several sources. Enjoy the happy ending.

CASH IS ON THE RIGHT.

CBS News

NEW YORK — A frightening search throughout New York City for a dog that high-tailed it had a happy ending Friday.

As CBS New York reported, the dog got off his leash in Brooklyn and ran for Manhattan.

Gwen Wunderlich adopted her chow named Cash six years ago. On Friday morning, she was on a plane on the tarmac at LaGuardia Airport when she got a frantic call from her dog walker, saying that Cash had somehow wriggled out of his collar and leash and took off.

“‘Oh my God, we’ve lost the dog, we lost him, he escaped, we’re so sorry.’ And they were crying,” she said.

Wunderlich got off the plane, which had already started taxiing.

“I told the stewardess. I got up, and she was like, ‘Are you sure? We can only turn around for emergencies.’ I’m like, ‘this is an emergency for me,'” she said.

She turned to the police, who told her a dog had been spotted in traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge, several blocks from her home. She posted her search on social media and immediately started getting calls about other sightings of Cash in lower Manhattan on the other side of the bridge.

“We drove to Canal Street, we drove to the Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, back downtown by Canal Street,” she said.

Wunderlich got word Cash had been spotted in Manhattan’s East Side in the 50s.

She kept getting updates from her friends who were also on the hunt all over the city. She found lots of strangers who had seen him.

“Earlier this morning, a coworker of mine saw him there. I think people tried to get him, but he ran this way,” one woman said.

“Oh my God, we tried to get him so bad. I took my leash off my dog, and he went down Second Avenue,” another added.

Seven hours after Cash had run off, Wunderlich got a call from Animal Control.

He had walked into a deli at Manhattan’s 18th Street and Eighth Avenue, went behind the counter and wouldn’t leave. Police were called and Cash made it to Animal Control, where the best friends were reunited after the journey of a lifetime.

Cash was not micro-chipped, but that’s the first thing Wunderlich took care of. She plans to have a welcome home party for the dog Friday night.

NBC News included this quote from a friend, Rebecca Usry:

“This dog is her whole heart, she has raised him since he was a tiny puppy and he has been an integral part in her life,” Usry said of Wunderlich. “She has gone through many changes in her life and he has always been her strong and steady companion. He is her child.”

Yes, he’s her child, but in all honesty, dogs don’t live long enough. Being parent to a canine child is a guarantee that you’ll lose a child much too soon.
