Send All Donations To The DCN News Blog Online TV Through PayPal And Other

I do what I do out of pocket attending meetings videoing and taking photos making them public for folk who do not attend for whatever reason. It takes funds to do what I do.

I video a variety of things from meetings, banquets, sporting events, funerals and other. I post my videos on YouTube where you can access them at anytime that is convenient for you.

I also take photos and post them on my Facebook page and make them available for others to see. If someone do not have a Facebook page they can still view the photos.

It takes funds to to travel places and then it takes funds for equipment.

You have 3 options that you can send donations, Cash App, PayPal or send via USPS.

I have a Cash App that you can send money from your phone.

‘Silent Sam’ is down: Protesters topple Confederate statue on UNC campus

imageCHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Protesters toppled the controversial “Silent Sam” statue on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

More than 300 protesters first gathered at the Peace and Justice Plaza at about 7:30 p.m., before marching to the base of the statue, calling for its removal. By 9:30 p.m., the statue was on the ground.

Protesters had sectioned off the area around the controversial statue with large banners and could be heard chanting, “stand up, fight back,” and “hey, hey, ho, ho, this racist statue has got to go.” Many also held signs.

The banners blocked the view of the statue, but people could be seen walking behind them. No one at the protest would speculate what was going on.

At one point, there were tense moments between protesters and police officers. Protesters deployed smoke canisters.

One person was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and for concealing one’s face during a public rally. (Read more)

A Close Look at the Six Constitutional Amendments on Your Ballot – Jeff Jackson North Carolina State Senator

In North Carolina, the general public doesn’t get to put amendments on the ballot through ballot initiatives but the public does get to vote on proposed amendments.

Your ballot this November will include six proposed constitutional amendments.

1. Right to Hunt and Fish

You can read the full amendment here.

Here’s what the language on your ballot will be:

[ ] FOR [ ] AGAINST
Constitutional amendment protecting the right of the people to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife.

No one ever got a straight answer on why this is necessary. When I asked in committee whether this was going to impact any existing state laws, regulations, or municipal ordinances, I was told, “Not that we know of.”

This amendment may, however, end up causing plenty of litigation from hunters and fishermen who feel that existing regulations impinge on their (new) constitutional right. The courts would be left to establish standards for what level of regulatory intrusion would constitute a constitutional violation.

2. Legislative Selection of Judicial Vacancies (i.e., majority party in the state legislature fills the judicial vacancies)

You can read the full amendment here.

Here’s what the language on your ballot will be:

[ ] FOR [ ] AGAINST

Constitutional amendment to implement a nonpartisan merit-based system that relies on professional qualifications instead of political influence when nominating Justices and judges to be selected to fill vacancies that occur between judicial elections.

This one is tricky — by design. It includes phrases that sound great like “merit-based” and “nonpartisan.” (Read more)

Convicted murderer Mark Bowling dies in prison – Rocky Mount Telegram

Mark Bowling, who was convicted of his wife’s murder in one of Rocky Mount’s most infamous cases, will not be serving out his 15-year sentence. He died in prison on Friday.

Bowling, who was serving his sentence at the Sampson Correctional Institute, died of natural causes, Jerry Higgins, a communications officer for the state Department of Public Safety, told the Telegram on Monday.

Bowling and his lover, Rose Vincent, were both convicted of the murder of Bowling’s wife in 2008. In the early hours of Dec. 8, 2006, Julie Bowling, 45, was shot to death in the garage of her home on River Glenn. Julie Bowling was a radiation therapist for Nash Health Care at the time of her death. (Read more)

RUDY GIULIANI CLAIMS FACTS ARE ‘IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER,’ CALLS TRUMP THE MOST ‘HONEST’ PRESIDENT IN HISTORY – NewsWeek

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Tuesday that in the modern era facts are “in the eye of the beholder.”

In a back and forth exchange between Giuliani and Chris Cuomo on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the former mayor of New York City called Trump one of the most honest presidents in history.

“If fact counting is anything, we’ve never had anybody with the level of mendacity that he has,” Cuomo quickly responded, likely alluding to the over 4,000 false or misleading claims Trump has made, according to The Washington Post since taking office.

“It’s in the eye of the beholder,” Giuliani said. When Cuomo tried to respond that factual statements are not in the eye of the beholder, the attorney answered with “nowadays they are.”

The statement came after the two discussed Paul Manafort’s trial and the accusations being made by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. Her most recent claim is that President Trump knew about the hacked Democratic emails obtained by Wikileaks before they were released during the 2016 election. (Read more)

50 pastors call out ministers who met with Trump – The Louisiana Weekly

Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr., spiritual leader of Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, was among more than 50 African-American pastors who felt compelled to respond after a highly publicized meeting between President Donald Trump and 20 Black ministers that was long on style but short on substance.

After the highly criticized meeting, the group of more than 50 pastors from across the country penned an open letter to those who participated in the meeting expressing their concern and dissent.

In the letter, the 20 pastors are referred to as “presidential cheerleaders” who were used by the Trump administration in an effort to dupe Black voters into supporting the president and his allies in upcoming elections.

A few of the notable pastors signing the letter are Dr. Frederick Haynes III, Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant, Dr. Amos C. Brown, Bishop John R. Bryant, Drs. Elaine and Floyd Flake, Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Dr. Otis Moss III, Bishop Marvin Sapp, and Bishop John R. Bryant.

The “Meeting with Inner City Pastors” was framed as a discussion on criminal justice reform, but received scathing criticism as an over-glorified photo-opt where Black leaders cozied to the President. In particular, Ohio Pastor Darrell Scott’s comments of Trump as the “most pro-Black president that we’ve had in our lifetime” made waves. (Read More)
