Pastors And Our Pres. To Talk About One Without The Other Make Us No Different Than The Oppressor

Have you noticed that Pastors don’t have much to say about what is going on in the real world? Shouldn’t they preach in season and out of season waking folk up with the trues. But nope ain’t gonna do that because that requires them to get involved and do something. When they acknowledge there is a problem and then I don’t speak out and/or do something then you can hold me accountable. But as long as they act like they don’t know then they can just ride out the storm. And then when the storm is over they can talk about it as if they was in the storm when actually they allowed the storm to go on without trying to help folk seek shelter.

We can talk about our Pres. but don’t get it twisted he ain’t the only one that need to be talked about. To talk about one without the other makes us no different from the oppressor.

Johns Hopkins’ Top Psychotherapist Releases Terrifying Diagnosis Of President Trump – Bipartisan Report

If there’s one thing we can say about Donald Trump, it’s that he’s unlike any other world leader we’ve seen to date. The problem, however, is that his differences fail to set him apart in a positive manner.

Almost daily, Trump tweets about the “biased media,” “fake news,” or a world leader who has suddenly done something so terrible that he must take to Twitter to publicly berate them. Notice, however, that it’s always someone else with the problem. It’s never him.

However, John D. Gartner, a registered psychotherapist from the renowned Johns Hopkins University Medical School seems to think Trump may, in fact, be the one with the problem. Gartner, who teaches psychiatric residents at Hopkins, decided to break the ethical code known as the “Goldwater Rule” in order to warn the American public about the dangerousness of our new commander-in-chief’s mental state.

President Trump’s voters seem to be fine with him using a private email server: poll – Salon

The Watch Dog response: Oh how well do they forget. Oh no in denial, don’t know any better or just don’t give a damn.

More President Donald Trump voters believe he should be allowed to have a private email server than those who do not, according to Public Policy Polling’s newest national poll.

Just 39 percent of Trump voters believe the president should be precluded from using a server similar to the one Hillary Clinton installed while she was secretary of state, which resulted in an FBI investigation that dogged her presidential campaign. Conversely, 42 percent of Trump voters think it is perfectly acceptable for him to be using a private server, despite the fact that many Trump voters believe Clinton should have been prosecuted for the same conduct.

Edgecombe County Democratic Party Sheriff Appointment Could Be Done On March 6 Instead Of April 3 But Higgs

Today Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Edgecombe County Democratic Party Chair was on “Your Morning With Yolanda” hosted by Dr. Glenda L. Knight Secretary of the party talking about the upcoming appointment process to replace Sheriff James L. Knight.

I am a precinct chair so therefore I have a vote and I have a voice. Trust me I will not be silent during the process.

Higgs said one thing he wanted folk to know is the process was going to be fair and open process. Really? What that suppose to mean?

Higgs said we did the same thing in 1997 when Knight got appointed. Well this time is different. Back then former Sheriff Phil Ellis resigned without giving a notice and left. Sheriff Knight has given a notice in January and his retirement is effective February 28. Therefore the party could have scheduled a candidates forum since the Sheriff gave his official resignation notice and then we could meet between on March 1 – 5 to actually vote so that we could give a name to the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners on March 6 so that the appointment could go into effect the 1st of March. But Higgs has taken it upon himself to call a meeting on March 23 and the commissioners next meeting will be on April 3. This makes no sense because we should have a name to be presented to the commissioners on March 6.

Now all interested persons seeking the appointment you need to know the difference in an appointment and an election. This is an appointment so therefore you need to know who the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee members are that have a vote. You need to know how many votes a precinct chair and vice chair has. Upon request this should be made available by the secretary Dr. Glenda L. Knight and/or Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Chair. I have requested the information and has not received it. This is public information and all Democratic Party members should be able to receive it. From what I am hearing Higgs is not giving it to anyone. The party does not have email nor a social media site so therefore the only information made available will be through the United Postal Service.

Folk have been asking me who are the names that I have heard seeking the appointment. I have told them the names I have heard but I had not talked to but one of the candidates and that was Highway Patrol Clee Atkinson because he was trying to make me aware he was interested after reading The DCN News Blog/Online TV. He wanted to know how could he obtain information about who the voting members are and etc. Today I met with Chief Deputy Allen Moseley. I have heard from a couple of folk and some from within the Sheriff Department. I am going to leave that right there. I am not going to call the names anymore until I hear from them. I have asked both of these guys to send me their information that I can post on my social media pages and when I receive it I will post it.

I am asking all Edgecombe County Democrats to ask the party chair Rev. Roosevelt Higgs (252) 907-8311 why has not call a meeting with the Edgecombe County Democratic Executive Committee between March 1 – 5 so we can have a name to submit to the Edgecombe County Commissioners so that we can have a person to to step right in Sheriff Knight role in just a few days vs waiting all of February and all of March.

See the Press Release that went out from Rev. Roosevelt Higgs Edgecombe County Democratic Party Chair, “Edgecombe County Democratic Party Prepare To Recommend Sheriff Replacement.” The Press Release give information as to where and who to send your information if you are interested in the appointment.

The Edgecombe County Democratic Women will host a Sheriff forum for all persons interested in the Sheriff appointment on February 16, 2017 6:00 PM Edgecombe County Administration Building Auditorium 201 St. Andrews Street. Contact Melanie Golf Bradley Secretary ECDW (252) 813-3990 or you can contact me and Ex-Officio Member at (252) 314-5484.

But Higgs!

Emmett Till’s Accuser Admits She Lied About Claims That Led To His Murder

The Watch Dog response: This is sad but what is even sadder is he is not the only one that has been killed or abused because of lies. And what makes it worst is nothing can change the outcome from back then. The trues coming out now will not bring back Till back it helps to bring some closure. And for those who were jailed they can’t get those years back that they lost. This kind of stuff makes me mad as hell. I know Timothy B. Tyson so glad he is a member of the NAACP.

The woman who accused 14-year-old Emmet Till of flirting with her in 1955 revealed for the first time that those claims were fabricated.

Vanity Fair reports that Timothy Tyson, the author of a new book titled The Blood of Emmett Till, spoke with Carolyn Bryant Donham, who was 21-years-old when she accused Till of making verbal and physical advances towards her. Donham’s claims against Till enraged two white men, J.W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant, who abducted and murdered Till three nights later, leaving his body bludgeoned, bruised and left at the bottom of the Tallahatchie River in Mississippi.

"FEMA’s Insuffiecient Contractural-House Inspection Leaves Residents in Treacherous Darkness to Toxic Mold"

Edgecombe County, NC_____(Princeville to be specific) “God Is My Witness” says Commissioner Milton Bullock of Ward 1 in devastated Town of Princeville which has repetitiously been known for flooding that dates back as far as the 1700’s. Native born; Commissioner Bullock who has been wearing various hats in his role of trying to expedite the return and the recovery of many of his constituents back to their homes has noticed with intensity the lack there of; and the presence of slowness retarded progression of resolving the situation plaguing the community of Princeville. With his residence being inspected and tagged 10/24/16 with a “Green Tag” meaning that the house he is living in was habitable and no visible flood water had entered residence! This was considered by Commissioner Bullock, as nothing short of a ‘Gifted Blessing from God Himself’!

Moving back in with minor damages, he had to schedule inspections by FEMA policy in order to assess the damages for repair. Bullock says he had two FEMA Inspectors (at different times) to come out and do their inspections. The first, (a male) Inspector gave Commissioner Bullock a passing grade of ‘no water entered and there was no water in the duct work under the house nor any water entered into the HVAC unit. Another proclaimed blessing! A month later it is ordered by FEMA policy to have another inspection. This was performed by a (female) who also gave the the same approval as mentioned prior. So with two Professional Inspectors referred by and representing FEMA, he had nothing to second guess about the safety of his resident. [All False Pretense being lead by Misinformation] that could’ve contributed to his death over a period of a very short time.

A very short time had he not been approached 3 months later by an independent contractor that was inspecting the actual damages of the HVAC unit for ‘repairs’ that were recommended by both FEMA Inspectors. It isn’t any wonder that these FEMA Inspectors Nationwide has been instructed to cut costs at any and by any means necessary-regardless of safety and security and health of the individual families being unconsciously yet deliberately “SHAFTED!” So during the (3) Independent Contractor inspection of the work, he advises me with a question “Mr. Bullock, did you know you had water in your duct work under your house?” I was baffled to no end, for I would have betted anyone that my house was safe and there were no sign of water to be found anywhere!” He ask me to come to the crawl hole beneath the house and took his screwdriver and pointed to me and asked did the previous inspectors show me the sagging ducts while punching a hole in one and releasing about 2-3 gallons of water that wasn’t supposed to have been there.

I wasn’t totally shocked, but more amazed with fear of what I could have been breathing with the hot summer months coming in spring and the heat and the mold and the bacteria manifesting the toxic spores of mole and only God knows what else; and my already compromised pulmonary breathing issues; inhaling and exhaling such deadly invisible fumes! FYI. I’m suggesting and revealing this (perhaps) ‘news breaking’ info for the residents of this area. For I’m sure these same criminal, malfeasant practices of omission were practiced during-“Hurricane KATRINA” and obviously continuing in all the other natural disasters that happened throughout North America! I have one last word of hope for folks like myself who have been left out in the forest without a leg to stand on; that perhaps our last hope via “President Donald Trump” (with God’s Intervention) will receive my letter of invite to come and [Drain The Real SWAMP] while mustering the “WILL POWER” to pull all the covers off of each and every culprits and their corruptive behavior and expose them to the World!

I just pray and hope that those of you who were lead to think your house was adequately being inspected didn’t buy the ‘Pig In The Bag’ just because the seller looked like they were the ‘Real Deal’! If this isn’t a first class act of fraud and deception meriting a class action legal reaction I’d draw my conclusion that this must be my imagination! But I for one among a few know better! And they say; “The Is America” makes one really and truly wonder about the statement. To God BE All The GLORY as we tread with HIM through these perilous times.

Edgecombe/Nash County FOLK Better Worry About The Ass Kissing On The Local Where It Begin And Goes Up

Edgecombe/Nash County FOLK better worry about the ass kissing on the local where it begin and goes up. I been at the table, where were you? I seen the leaders who play both sides but you only know the side you see or hear about outside of the meetings. I have been calling out black, brown, white and other since the late 80s. I been in meetings sometime being the only person from the community speaking up for other folk. I been at the table with folk taking money from the good Ole boys to keep us right where we are.

This year I have no limits gonna take it to a new level so if folk don’t want to read what I say, need to hit delete today. Gonna give it to you as a grown ass man. I have invested too much time and resources which includes finances to allow folk to say mess that don’t make sense to me, I repeat to me.

If you gonna come out politically then state your opinion based on the facts.

Edgecombe County Sheriff Appointment Should Be A Main Concern While Folk Are Worrying About President Trump

I posted the following article on my blog “Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee Should Meet On March 1st To Recommend A Name To Present To County Commissioners For Sheriff Appointmentwhich automatically posted to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn social media pages on January 7, 2017. I still have not heard from but one candidate that is interested. I have heard a couple of names however I am not going to say who that person is until a couple of days from now.

Obviously folk don’t read The DCN News Blog Online TV and/or any of my social media sites because I had stated over the years that at anytime folk are running for office in Edgecombe County but not limited to because I have a vote either during the May Primary and November General Election you need to contact me. However because I am a Precinct Chair I also have a vote when it comes to certain appointments one being the Sheriff appointment. Some folk know and some do know that I played a major role in the appointment of Sheriff James Knight on the local but also statewide in the appointment of G.K. Butterfield to Congress and the election of Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II when he was elected President of the NC NAACP. Nope I ain’t nobody and only have on vote, however I do have a voice and a network.

While those Edgecombe County folk whom are focusing on Trump we need to be talking about the Sheriff appointment. Maybe you have not heard, maybe you don’t know and/or maybe you don’t care. Well I am telling you if you don’t know and I ask that you share the information with your family and friends because they may not receive my information. Some folk who don’t live on Edgecombe County side that have an audience such as pastors and other, you need to be sharing the information so they will be aware of what is fitting ready to take place after Sheriff Knight retires on February 28, 2017 a little over 30 days from today.

There are 21 Democratic Precincts in Edgecombe County and the chair and the vice chair can vote. There are numerous Democratic Party Elected Officials that have a vote. There are 6 Democratic Party Officers on the County Executive Committee. There may be some Ex-Officio members who may be able to vote and all of these folk are called the Edgecombe County Executive Committee that must come together and vote on a candidate. Once that is done the Edgecombe County Commissioners must appoint the name given to them.

All persons who are interested in the appointment need to contact Rev. Roosevelt Higgs (252) 907-8311 Democratic Party Chair and/or the secretary. I asked the secretary for the information and she said Rev. Higgs have it. I understand he has been asked for the information but he has not been willing to give it up. I don’t have time to play with him so I will not be contacting him. I know he will be be trying to hold off on the information so he can attempt to manipulate the process because I know how he works. But the information should be readily available for any Democrat in the county.

I would love to see the Edgecombe County Democratic Women hold a forum to ask anyone whom may be interested in the appointment. I suggest the ECDW because the Democratic Party under the leadership of Rev. Higgs has not held any type of forum other than being a party of the Edgecombe County Human Relations Commission.

Lastly do ya’ll know that the Sheriff runs the county? Folk this is a very, very, very serious appointment.

Now don’t get it twisted. I am not asking anyone to agree with me I am just putting the trues out there. I have no control over how folk receive information. I also ask folk to do their own homework because I do mines.

The challenge is on.

I Agree Totally With Sparrow R. Jones I Don’t Think Less Of You Because . . .

The autistic author Sparrow R. Jones said it well:

I am not mad at you that Clinton lost. I am unconcerned that we have different politics. And I don’t think less of you because you vote one way and I vote another. No… I think less of you because you watched an adult mock a disabled person in front of a crowd and still supported him. I think less of you because you saw a man spouting clear racism and backed him. I think less of you because you listened to him advocate for war crimes, and still thought he should run this country. I think less of you because you watched him equate a woman’s worth to her appearance and got on board. It isn’t your politics that I find repulsive. It is your personal willingness to support racism, sexism, and cruelty. You sided with a bully when it mattered and that is something I will never forget. So, no… you and I won’t be “coming together” to move forward or whatever. Trump disgusts me, but it is the fact that he doesn’t disgust you that will stick with me long after this election.

Is Rep. John Lewis The Only One Not Attending President Elect Trump’s Inauguration?

So why am I only hearing about Rep. Lewis not going?

So is that not their right to not attend?

Hell I remember how the good ole boys met right before President Obama took office and agreed not to support anything that he was going to ask for.

I ain’t even getting into when Trump and other Republicans and some Democrats said that President Obama was not legit. Damn but now Rep. Lewis  and some others can’t feel some type of way.

Gov. Cooper says he’s in talks about repeal of House Bill 2 – News & Observer

Gov. Roy Cooper said Monday he sees an opening for another possible deal with legislative leaders to repeal House Bill 2.

In Charlotte to speak at the YMCA’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. holiday breakfast, the Democratic governor said he has been talking with GOP Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore since their last proposed deal collapsed in December.

“We’ve had it out. A couple of times, we’ve talked,” Cooper told reporters after the breakfast. “They certainly do want to move forward in some way.” (Read more)

Politics When You Know How It Works The Better Off You Will Be

​This is politics and when one recognize and understand how it works the better off one will be. 

If I wanted to ask a question I would ask do ya’ll think it is okay not to meet with elected officials, community leaders and others that you don’t vote for and/or don’t like?

What you will get is you never asked for anything and then they can use that against you whether you like it or not.

Folk there are numerous of folk that meet with these folk all the time.

I am waiting for folk to get mad about what is going on locally because I know who has been and are involved.

I have been calling folk out locally while others call out behind their back. There is a hell of more damage done in your local areas than worrying about who Steve Harvey met with.

Hell here in North Carolina former Governor McCrory and the Republican Legislators have tore up NC.
