I would be cheering today for the historical significance of nominating a woman to be President of the United States, but...the amount of negativity surrounding this, the deception, the deceit, the lies, the maneuvering, the disenfranchising of Voters across all states, across all racial makeups, across all ages...But I cannot in good faith and honoring of principles even bend a moment of my time to congratulate anyone who has basically stolen a race.
and I'm going to say a LOT more in a second.
First let me get something off my chest. I am sorry that Philando Castille died. I am truly sorry that a man was shot in a car in front of a young girl of 4 who is the most composed kid on the planet after having 4 - 5 gunshots (est., I wasn't there) go off and potentially even end up in the body of the car she was sitting in while her, her mother known as "Lavish" and Mr. Castille drove along on July the 6th.
No kid should have to witness such a thing. Yes, BlackLivesMatter. Not that organization mind you, but actual black lives. Black people. Some people have other names for them. I don't my Dad raised me to be respectful and for YEARS I have been told by Black people in my life to call them Black.
Yes, I am sorry he was shot. But I am also sorry that what we see on the video posted to Facebook Live is INCOMPLETE. It's not a full record of the car moving, being pulled over, waiting for the policeman to either enter information into his car computer, or to call into the station to report his location, give license make and model of the vehicle, etc., all the while Mr. Castille was perhaps moving his gun around to where he could get to it? Or was he looking for his license and registration? Or was he dealing with Lavish yelling at him for being pulled over and perhaps them getting caught with drugs (see her video from July 4th posted online of her smoking weed in the car while her daughter was in a confined space breathing that in at age 4).
What all happened before the 4-5 shots rang out? Why wasn't that kid screaming or shaking? Why wasn't Lavish screaming or shaking? Her loved one had just had 4-5 slugs at close range plugged into his arm (the cop shot his arm off!! she said in the video), the arm was not shot off, it was still attached. How LONG were they sitting there with Mr Castille Bleeding out before Ms Lavish turned on her phone to go live with the world while Mr Castille was moaning and groaning and bleeding out?
How long did she let him bleed before she turned on the phone??? 1 Minute? 5 Minutes? She could have dialed 911 and left the line open and had the entire episode be recorded by police and have a LIVE BOYFRIEND, but she wanted to get the video done as she'd done so many times.
Those are some questions I have. Those are questions I would be wanting answers to if I was going to sit on a jury. Those are questions that Castille's family should be asking Ms. Lavish and her GoFundMe account that is raising funds for her.
Yes, Black Lives Matter. You're damn right they do. Mr. Castille's life mattered. We don't know his actions before the video came on, because conveniently the camera was left off. Ms Lavish had done videos many times before. We know, we can search for them on the internet and they are everywhere! She could have had that camera on for the entire stop. She didn't. WHY???
Mr Castille's life matters to me. I pray for him. I think he was with someone who didn't want the best for him. Why? Because based on what I saw, she was too busy talking to her audience than she was to RENDER AID to someone who she witnessed being shot. Being a MOM, she would know how to do certain things. Moms have instincts. They have unique powers when someone they love is mistreated or hurt. They know how to stop bleeding.
Under the statutes of the State of Minnesota there is one which interested me in particular. DUTY to Render Aid, here's the link to the page for it: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=609.662
Basically that page says that if you see someone get shot you have a duty to render aid to that victim. She didn't render any aid. Recording a video is NOT rendering aid. There is no direct pressure placed on the bullet entries to stop or slow bleeding. There is no bandaging being done, there is no calling 911 and telling them that there's a murderous cop holding them there while the love of her life bleeds out "Oh god don't tell me that he just went like that" (he was still groaning and moving in the video for more than a minute and a half from when she started the recording. He'd been shot for how many minutes before that? We don't know "yet".
Anyway, people are attacking cops without all the facts in these cases. I am truly sorry that Mr. Castille died. But he did not completely die at the gun of a policeman. He died because his girlfriend did not do what any decent human being would do for their loved one and that is to help them in their time of need.
Something to think about as you ride around with Ms. Lavish in your car, if you get pulled over and shot will she help you out? Or will she put on some makeup and say "lights, camera, action, time to go LIVE ON FACEBOOK!!"
In my opinion, FACEBOOK should remove her video from ever being played on their site. Why? Because it shows that she allowed a human being to die in her presence while she could have gotten her butt out of the car with hands up wayyyy before she went live and allowed Mr Castille to be helped.
I believe she's guilty of his death as well.
My prayers are for Mr. Castille, his family, and for the facts to be shown that he could have been saved. Once that's done, for all those screaming from the tops of buildings and protesting to take a step back and take a deep breath and say "SHIT!!!! Maybe we shouldn't all jump on the BLACK LIVES MATTER TRAIN so damn quickly, because in the end, we might be wrong about what happened."
God Bless ALL who read this. It's a tough read.
actually, the press is part of the problem, not part of the solution. We the people are being duped by the press daily and some of us never stand up to say STOP!
Fortunately, I was raised to stand up and say STOP!!!
Huffington Post printed a picture today of Donald Trump and attached to it an incomplete quote to try and anger many people. They were successful. Unfortunately people you have been duped by the Huffington Post. Manipulated, Lied to just as our government sees fit to do on a daily basis.
Here's what the Huffington Post wrote:
"50 PEOPLE DEAD AND DONALD TRUMP TWEETS, "APPRECIATE THE CONGRATS FOR BEING RIGHT ON RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM."
What Donald Trump really said was this:
"Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!"
So the Huffington Post believes it is serving the memory of those who died in Orlando by bashing the one person who wants to stand up for AMERICA and lead us in a way that gets those who would want to harm us to think many times before actually doing something.
CONTEXT & COMPLETE QUOTES are KEY in this world!
Lying to the American public has been something the press has done to serve itself for many, many years. They do it to get the most advertising clicks in the world of money for clicks on the internet. This story has probably made them over $500,000.00 in the time it's been running. They should have to give that money to the people of Orlando and those who've cared for the dead and the wounded.
I'd like to see them held accountable by Trump's legal team for this and perhaps other stories that they've twisted and contorted.
Don't believe everything you read. I have nothing to gain by twisting this around. I hope those reading this will understand that they take advantage of us daily. We should demand the truth be printed and that those advertisers paying them should reconsider their investments and demand that the truth win out over deception. We deserve so much better.
If this writing resonates with you. TWEET or POST ON FACEBOOK and call out The Huffington Post & Arianna Huffington for their LIES.

Image of Donald Trump actual tweet with complete sentence showing so that it cannot be misunderstood.
If you do, ANY SENATOR, ANY CONGRESSMAN, ANY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE…YOU ARE HIGH AS A DAMN KITE!!!
Just because he has the codes, has the football in hand, has entered in everything that needs to be entered…there are OTHER FAILSAFES IN PLACE.
So all of you pussies and I use the word against any one of these damn flakes out there who ran against TRUMP and who he handily drove into the pavement and through it with the shear force of the VOTERS OF THIS COUNTRY. STAND DOWN YOU IDIOTS!!!
You all talk of UNITY. You’re all full of shit and should be removed from your positions for crapping on our country just as badly as the current occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
You stand in judgment of a man who has received MORE VOTES THAN ANY OTHER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN HISTORY DURING THE PRIMARY SEASON. How did he do it??? EASILY!!! YOU ALL PISSED OFF THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS and WE THE PEOPLE ARE FUCKING TIRED OF IT!!!
Now, you want to do something great? You want to do something special? You want to show you’re a part of the solution and not part of the problem??? THEN UNIFY!!! GET BEHIND DONALD J TRUMP. SHOW THE MAN SOME RESPECT, and UNIFY THE GODDAMNED PARTY!!
He went against all of you, including the party, including that collection of asshats known simply as “NeverTrump” (because they have no balls to stand up and say “THIS IS ME” because they know people will pull business from them, pull money from them and send them to the streets.
HE BEAT EVERYONE!! Including the party base who’s been fighting him from the beginning!! GET BEHIND THE MAN, UNIFY and STOP LISTENING TO GODDAMNED MITT ROMNEY WHO LOST TO OBAMA, HELPED CREATE ISIS and has blood on his hands because of his idiocy!! He’s a damned has-been who never should be again.
VOTE TRUMP, SUPPORT TRUMP, and also, lastly, understand that as a citizen of this country, IF Donald Trump does not feel he’s being treated fairly in a court of law and does not speak up, he’s paving a way for a lot of other people to be crapped on by an unfair legal system. THANK THE MAN FOR STANDING UP FOR RIGHTS HE BELIEVES IN!!!
The GUY has MORE BALLS than ANY OTHER CANDIDATE, and HE WANTS what’s GREAT FOR AMERICA!! WHY would you fight that? Why would you fight someone who wants AMERICA to PROSPER, for her PEOPLE to PROSPER, for OUR COUNTRY TO COME TOGETHER instead of be victims to the divisive nature of OBAMA’s “Let me blow sunshine up your ass and bring CHANGE”! TRUMP WANTS REAL CHANGE FOR AMERICA.
AMERICA IS GREAT, but…she’s been beaten up by OBAMA and his lack of vision. By his dividing our people against each other. By his lack of true leadership, and by him allowing a Secretary of State named Hillary Clinton to KILL AMERICANS IN BENGHAZI and let her get away with it. SHE has violated her oath to NOT SHARE DOCUMENTS with others. It’s a blanket agreement. We all sign one when we enlist in service to our country. She spits on the graves of the fallen with her callous attitude of “Catch me if you can”. Well Mrs. Clinton, we have your ass and we are going to make mince meat out of it for the entire world to see, and we are going to lock you up forever because YOU MADAM have NO RIGHT TO BE PRESIDENT OF MY UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
DONALD TRUMP DOES. I STAND WITH HIM. He is MUCH MORE DESERVING OF THE OFFICE than you will EVER BE. God Bless Donald J Trump, a BILLIONAIRE who had things to do, but decided he LOVES AMERICA more than all of that, and dove head first into a race laced with vipers and came out on top of the pile standing tall, proud and ready to fight FOR AMERICA FIRST. God Bless him and his entire family. THEY ROCK in my book!
This letter is written with “ALL DUE RESPECT”. For some like Mr Donald J. Trump there is MUCH DUE RESPECT. For some like Mrs Clinton there is NOT ONE IOTA OF DUE RESPECT.

Really? My first thought was damn if I ever run across that Corey Lewandowski, I’ll take out 4 years of frustrations on him just for grabbing that reporter and throwing her down like that…what a bastard!!!
Many people thought the same thing, although they probably don’t have the ire that I do with 4 years of loss in California, parents, money, marriage, memories and more. But still to read on twitter so many people claiming that someone had forcefully thrown a woman to the ground, my other hope was that cops would have taken him and worked him over with nightsticks.
But then pictures started to come out, then videos, then…overhead security videos…the truth…this reporter would have been roughed up more at a Black Friday opening at Walmart than she was at this press conference in the ballroom of a Trump owned property. In fact, with this many people around, if she’d be tossed around like a ragdoll as was claimed by the writer who was detailed enough to say that “finger shaped bruises appeared on her arm”…I think they both would have been arrested, and the guy Corey doing all that beating up would have been trampled by the crowd.
With me, my reactive self took off in defense of this woman that I’d never met and the guy who’d beaten on her…yes I was counting the days until Trump came back to Arizona to make my move.
More research reveals that as the group of press people moved to the back of the room, Secret Service agents moved her away from Mr Trump, and then when she persisted, Corey ran interference, grabbed for a split second in the form of “Excuse me, move aside” and he got her away from Mr Trump’s side and kept moving. He didn’t stop, didn’t throw her to the ground, and didn’t kick or bite her as the police report implied mentioning weapons used as Hands, Fists, Teeth, Feet.
The fact that Corey went in a continuous motion told me that whoever was doing the writing was blowing things out of proportion. In doing more research I found out the writer of the “facts” was the guy in a maroon & white checkered shirt (really bad taste dude), who was also heard in an audio recording as saying “Wow, he really threw you down”, and interesting enough, this guy in the video that was shown by the overhead security footage barely had to assist the “victim” known as Michelle Fields. Doing additional reading on the web about Ms Fields, apparently she had a knack for being a victim when cameras were around to capture things. Was she the shooter behind the fence on the grassy knoll? I’ll have to go back and look through reams of JFK Dealey Plaza footage to see, but I think she might have been there.
Did I write an apology to Corey right away? No. I held back on things to see what would develop as this “case” moved forward. I watched more and more and then all of a sudden there was a notice of the District Attorney NOT BRINGING ANY CHARGES against Corey.
I tweeted out an apology to him because I went off what I first heard which to me was a guy had man handled a woman and needed to be taught a lesson. He needs to be applauded for doing his job, making sure that Mr Trump was on his way out the door and was not impeded by someone who had been told by Secret Service not to approach a candidate and she basically via additional footage stalked him from a distance like a hunter watching a target. If she’d been an assassin we’d have a whole other group of people “zapruder-ing” the footage frame by frame and the fbi/cia and others would be changing the footage to throw off conspiracy people as they’ve done with the many films from Dealey Plaza that day long ago.
Thank Goodness this was not the case. We only have a woman who may need to be examined by someone for her apparent personality disorder which requires that she basically throw herself into a situation where she doesn’t belong and then get as much attention as she can for her cause. Additionally she had two guys, one who was there, one who wasn’t, and some others who were caught trying to lie for her who bailed out of the picture as they realized this was going to get big and nothing would end up in their pockets.
Sad that this has distracted from the TRUMP campaign as it has. Lastly there’s a collection of people on Twitter who were throwing Corey to the lions and demanding he be fired. Their bosses should look at all of them and summarily fired for their stands which were so far off base you can’t find them without binoculars.
Corey, I am sorry I jumped to conclusions. I stand against abuse against women, men, kids, elders and animals. I trusted that the man was writing the truth and not lying his face off about it because he thought he’d get laid by the victim. Pretty sad when that happens. What happened to you and your family during this time never should have happened.
It’s great to see how Mr Trump stood by you and believed in you when the other candidates in this election said “well he should be fired right now”. We know that TRUMP will STAND with AMERICA and make sure we’re taken care of too. The other candidates will abandon America and that’s not what we need.
God bless, keep up the great work, and thanks again for looking out for our candidate.
