DHS hopeful Clarke denies plagiarism in master’s thesis – ABC News

Source: DHS hopeful Clarke denies plagiarism in master’s thesis – ABC News

Let me just start by saying that plagiarism is not the biggest problem in this picture.  The problem here is a corrupt law enforcement official who is now trying to infiltrate our United States government.

Again with the smoke and mirrors!

Once again, we are presented with the “look over here while we do this over there” style of leadership and journalism.  We are encouraged to focus on this man’s theft of others work, which is bad enough.  But we are being quietly asked to look away from his huge human rights violations and, his intent to spread this all over the country.

And I will remind some of my friends on the far side of my opposition that this is not good for you either.  Just like any military or para-military operation, there are some things that are considered “acceptable losses.”  And you my fellow Americans are those acceptable losses.  So just as with all problems, we can’t call them “black people problems.”  We can’t call them criminals problems either.  Because under this guy, with the suspension of Habeas Corpus that would be possible under his leadership, anyone could find themselves behind bars awaiting a “fair trial.”

To keep it short, but please look it up if you don’t believe me, Habeas is required to determine whether or not a persons imprisonment is lawful.  Can they hold you or not, based on the evidence that police or other investigators have provided.  That means that they need more than my word that you killed someone to arrest you and hold you in jail for any such reason.

This is a very fundamental part of our human rights.  It prevents you from spending days to years in jail just because your next door neighbor doesn’t like you.  Seems unreasonable doesn’t it?  Well we don’t have these types of problems because we have Habeas.  Most of us don’t anyway.  Cross the wrong person, and you will be glad for it!

I am not a lawyer, but I know enough about the law to be dangerous.  I think the last few paragraphs are proof enough of that.  And it doesn’t matter if you are black or white, male or female, straight or gay.  I could disappear you for months under a DHS leader like Sheriff Clarke quite easily, for nearly anything.  Go ahead and put on your “Make America Great Again” hat and see what happens.

That’s the problem with attempting to take human rights away from any certain group of people.  You expose yourself to those same violations just by setting the precedence with others.  Walls that keep people out also keep people in.  Something people who put bars on their windows in the inner cities find out when they have a fire.  Seemed like a good idea at the time huh?  I will take my chances with the criminals.  You can’t negotiate with fire.

And this guy is a fire waiting for some oxygen.  Don’t look the other way people.

Is This Trump’s America?

It’s been a long time since I posted.  I hope that you all have not forgotten about me.  I’ve been sitting back watching.  From Obama’s last 4 years to Trumps first 4 months, it’s been quite a ride.  But now it’s starting to get bumpy.  I figured I had better start tossing out some food for thought again.  This seems as good a time as any when you consider that it seems we are on borrowed time.

With all of that said, I would kindly suggest that Donald Trump step down as President of the United States of America.  I would kindly submit the same as a request.

I would first say that Americans who are concerned about their own privacy have nothing to be concerned about regarding the Legal Surveillance of Donald Trump and his team.  If this is being conducted; there is a reason for it.  Someone, somewhere has been doing wrong against this country that everyone claims to love, and the authorities are attempting to follow up on it.

Before I go on, let me throw a little logic into the mix.  Barack Obama as outgoing President, has no concerns about Donald Trump.  As evidenced by the many photos we have seen of Obama finally getting a chance to TRY and relax in Hawaii after so many years of resistance.  Quite honestly, I think he was far too concerned with getting the hell out of Washington to care what Trump was doing.  Think about it for a while before you read on.  I will wait.

Now… if the Intelligence collection was lawful, and Sean Spicer just admitted that it was in his last news conference, then there is a reason for it.  This is not some “Fake News” conspiracy theory.  This is a legal investigation.  And I have seen my share of Presidents go through this.  Only one did not survive.  That was Richard Nixon.  He did not survive the investigation because he was wrong.  And he acted like a man, and resigned.

To see Donald Trump Tweeting, (does he actually do anything Presidential, or is this just more reality TV?  With our lives?), all of this “Fake News, conspiracy, Obama is sick” crap is actually making me sick.  And I mean physically sick!  Nausea, headaches, insomnia.  For the first time in my life, I really don’t feel comfortable with the future.  And this is coming from a guy who has had to face the uncertainty of the criminal justice system and prison!  If you want to know fear, it starts right there.  Until now.

This Trump guy is running another reality show and he is improvising with our safety, our money, our health care, or legacy (the environment), or simply, our lives.  He has no idea what he is doing and is surrounded by people with just as little experience and with their own full agenda.  White Nationalism being one of them.  That one is pretty important to me as a black male watching a lot of younger black males try to grow up behind me.  But that’s not the only one that concerns me.

Where do I start?  A Muslim travel ban?  Really?  But let’s take Iraq out of it because we do get some oil imports from them right?  No, that’s not the reason at all.  So forget that.  Let’s talk about Muslims.  Their religion is Islam.  So you are banning them on the basis of religion, correct? (Rhetorical).  Has anyone explained to this man that Holy Wars never end?  Has Donald Trump called it that?  No.  But in so many words.  All of this talk about people “pouring” in and being dangerous.  You mean like when black people move into your neighborhood Donald?  No one is “pouring” into America like so much foul water.  And for those of you that are robots to the politics of fear, please educate yourselves.  If you need help, please contact me and I will direct you to the resources you need to learn more.

Now of this “Fake News” thing, we have a real problem.  The first problem is that there is a lot of fake news out there.  On that, Donald Trump and I agree.  The second problem is that Donald Trump can’t tell me what’s fake and what’s not.  He has neither the right, nor the power to define my reality.  We can all be assured that he will try in as Fascist a way as possible.  But he cannot and will not be allowed to do that in my house!  I would suggest to everyone else to do the same.  Just as you don’t take Obama’s word for it, or Fox’ word for it or even mine; DO YOUR RESEARCH!  Find your own facts.

The government, Universities, and even outlets outside the country keep very accurate records of things you can use to determine on your own, what is true and what is false.  Then you can decide what is fake and what isn’t.  Then you can decide what’s truly important to you and make that clear to your local representatives.  These are the people that can keep Donald Trump in check.  Or choose to put someone who knows what they are doing in his place.  And that may very well be the best thing for the country.

Beyond all the tough guy talk and the dominating discussions, there is a world out there that we have to be a part of.  It demands diplomacy, patience, intelligence and, a deep love of people.  I have yet to see any of those things from this President.  No new jobs, except Border Patrol and ICE.  The coming roll back for LGBT rights.  I don’t think I am being paranoid if I say that womens’ and civil rights will probably be next.  Deregulation of the banks.  Great.  Will we survive that again?  Not likely.  Ending the moratorium on mountain stripping for coal?  Oh, there’s a few million jobs for all the unemployed in this country.  Better get up there and see those mountains before West Virginia becomes a plains state.

And apparently no desire to attempt to become anyone but a laughing stock for the world and secret lover to Vladimir Putin.

That’s what we’ve go so far.  There’s more and more to come.  But we will talk about all of that later.

Until next time,

Peace!

Assetto Corsa

Nothing serious, but you can assign this app for kn5 files and get some kind of viewer. It’s not very good, but still. “W” for switching wireframe mode.

If you know how to deal with DirectX and/or C#, I could really use some help, by the way. There are a lot of things need to be done. 🙂

About Disk Space

For those of us games who are into modding and addons, this could be a real HDD saver. I recommend trying it out.

Assetto Corsa

Have problems with Assetto Corsa folder’s size? You can easily make it two times smaller!

If you wonder why this folder isn't in Steam folder, that's all because of symlinks. I like to keep all my games in only one place.

Just enable NTFS compression for content folder! It takes some time to compress all files, but after all it can even decrease loading time! Well, CPU will have to do some extra word, but HDD will have to read less bytes. Much less.

The problem is, Assetto Corsa doesn’t use compression for textures. Not even a simple one. Not even in KN5. And DDS, especially with high quality, takes a lot of space, really, a lot. Nice texture 2048×2048 could easily take 20 megabytes, and well made car requires a lot of them!

Dealing With Trolls And Assorted Hate Online

Trolls or Internet bullies as I call them, are an endangered species on my list. Take a read, and see why I too have a zero tolerance policy for them. Thanks for sharing Erin!

Erin Matson

I have experienced a fair amount of trolling in my day. The trolling has occurred in my Twitter mentions, on Facebook, by email, in comment boxes, in paper mail, in voicemails, on blogs, and by call-ins to television and radio programs on which I have been a guest. It has been directed at me personally and organizations I’ve been affiliated with. Garbage like this can come with the territory when you’re a feminist, and especially when you’re a woman on the Internet.

At it’s most garden variety, the trolling is a never-ending stream of comments on my sluttiness, my stupidity, and my appearance. The trolls can’t decide if I’m super ugly, or hot and have good “jugs.” The focus is never my actual appearance so much as baldly sexist attempts to reduce my worth to my appearance. Ah, and how could I forget — I am an advocate for reproductive health, rights, and justice…

The Press

So why all of these questions about Brian Williams integrity and reliability?

Every media reporter on this planet should follow his lead. In fact, the biggest liars out there should be going home behind him today. Brian lied, and then told the truth. Good for him!

Now how many of the rest of these story tellers are going to follow suit? Or are they all going to jump on their high horses and point their fingers at him for the rest of their untruthful careers?

The news media needs a complete overhaul just as much as the government does. I trust none of them. They are all simply trying to secure and keep their jobs at the expense of the wondering public.

From NBC to Fox to Russia Today, lies are being spread like butter on a roll, and people are believing it all, like the gospel. (God forbid I would mention God in all this). But I thought that telling the truth is a Godly notion? For those people that claim religion, telling the truth is the first thing you must do, regardless of what your Producer tells you. Even if you are the Producer.

The Jews are not responsible for all the worlds wars. Nor is America, or anywhere else in the West. The media is. They are also currently responsible for the troubles in my personal relationships as well. (Not that I don’t own it. I do. But they are not helping me currently with a woman I love dearly from another country).

And they all lie for the purpose of ratings and to have something else to fill the void in the 24 hour news cycle. These people get paid, and are often paid so well, that they are part of the 1%, or the ruling class as some would call it. Why would they not bend the truth a little just to keep you watching, and us fighting? If I want to make my point, I have to tune in tonight so that I can gather more ammunition in my fight to prove myself right. They count on that, from all of us. From America to the Ukraine and all the way around the globe.

And they are full of shit! Brian Williams was just the first person to say it without being pressed against the wall to do it. I wonder how many of these other folks will have an attack of conscious and admit to it themselves? Dumbass Don Lemon, I’m looking at you. Fox News? Looking squarely in your direction. MSNBC? Somebody speak up. Other than Melissa Harris-Perry.

But if you are telling people every day what is going on, why it’s going on, and who may or may not be the person generating this news, you have an obligation. An obligation to tell the truth. To be honest, whether it’s something you agree with or not. If you loose your job, at least you can do it with dignity. I would rather be homeless and correct; than warm and dry and a liar. And I can tell you, I have been put to that test. I was not homeless, but I wasn’t warm, dry, and comfortable at home either.

What can we do about it? I recently told someone that they had told me enough of what was wrong and who’s fault it was, and now what are we going to do about it?! I eagerly await their answer because I know that whatever it is, it’s going to create a lot of discomfort and sacrifice on the people’s part, and the follow up to that question will be, will everyone want to do it.

If we have to live without news or heat, or Internet, or fast food (Papa John?), or nice clothes, or cheap Chinese made goods…etc. Will we as people, be willing to suffer those things to force the world to tell us the truth. Will we be willing to shed blood, or even die to force governments to treat us with respect, or stop the police from killing our kids?

What will we do to stop ISIS from taking over the Middle East? Is that too huge to assume it won’t happen? If Obama can’t talk to Iran, who will? Will you? Why aren’t we waiting for the Ukraine to ask us for help before we give rebels more reasons to shoot at their citizens?

Why won’t anyone stand up to Congress and force them to work with the President to solve problems, rather than ruining the American people trying to prove that they will not take orders from “that” Commander in Chief? Why won’t we either recognize our entire government or not at all. Not just the parts that look like us.

What very uncomfortable steps will we as human beings take, to give tomorrow’s adults a world that they can live in? It might be easier to do if we knew the entire truth.

Journalists, the ball’s in your court.

Peace
