NAACP plans march against ‘Trumpism’ – WRAL

Raleigh, N.C. — Saying President Donald Trump has no authority “to run roughshod over the Constitution,” state NAACP leader Rev. William Barber announced plans Monday for a march against “Trumpism” in six weeks.

“When a president of this country … puts his hand on the Bible and swears to uphold the Constitution, that ought to mean something,” Barber said at a news conference.

He cited Trump’s plans to erect a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and crack down on cities that don’t assist in tracking down people in the country illegally, cabinet appointments that oppose voting rights and health care for all and the president’s order on Friday temporarily suspending immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations as well as all refugees seeking to settle in the U.S. (Read more)

Judge Sides With NAACP; Orders Reinstatement of Canceled Voter Registrations – WFAE

The Watch Dog response: This is why I am a proud Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP.

A federal judge has ordered North Carolina to reinstate roughly 3,500 voter registrations that were canceled within the past three months. The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP sued over the cancellations in three counties in the eastern half of the state.

A handful of private citizens challenged huge numbers of voter registrations, relying mainly on undeliverable mail. Almost all the cancellations were tied to one person in Cumberland County who’s affiliated with the Voter Integrity Project, a small group in Raleigh. (Read more)

"LOW TURNOUT?" YOU BE THE JUDGE! HKONJ, FEBRUARY 14, 2015 CUP OVERFLOWING WITH LOVE, UNITY, DIVERSITY, DIRECTION, AND HOPE – DOWNTOWN RALEIGH by Minister Curtis Everette Gatewood

Curtis Everette Gatewood

Certain media outlets had predetermined, how they would report this year’s turnout for the Moral March on Raleigh, and HKonJ People’s Assembly in an effort to peel off momentum and downplay the rising tide of a new generation seeking justice. They knew last year’s effort of an estimated more than 80,000 could not possibly be repeated, therefore, many media outlets had already decided, if this year’s rally had 79,999,we are going to say, “This year, turnout was low!” I’m shaking my head.

Everyone who is honest, present, and not trying to deceive others, is shocked at how similar this year’s crowd was even as we never expected to have as many as last year. Because, last year was the same year Governor McCrory was elected and came into office joined at the hip of tea-party-funder Art Pope, while other Tea-Party extremists hijacked and took over the NC General assembly and began immediately legislatively assaulting children, African Americans, Hispanics, Women, LGBT, Labor, environment, Educators/education, those in need of Obamacare, those in need of unemployment benefits, poor Whites, and others who were not in the club of greed with those such as NC Civitas, ALEC, AFP, and other rich White male cliques.

In spite of those who would like to get us caught up into the numbers game, this year’s march, may have again outnumbered Selma’s final Edmund Pettus Bridge crossing (an estimated 25,000) in 1965 which had held the record for the largest civil rights mobilization in the South until, HKonJ8 – 2014, and now HKonJ9 – 2015 (the two most recent HKonJ People’s Assembly gatherings downtown Raleigh)! This year’s HKonJ turnout still “turned out” more than we have ever seen at any Tea Party rally, especially when considering this rally was not a “national” rally, but was indigenously-led by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and other great state-grown leaders within ONE state – North Carolina. This year’s HKonJ turnout still produced more diversity (young, old, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, etc.) than any other social justice demonstration of our generation.

So let’s not get caught up into the numbers game; let’s not let them keep moving the goal post. WE HAVE PROVEN WE ARE BEST POSITIONED TO REPRESENT THE BEST INTERESTS AND BEST HOPES OF THE WHOLE BODY OF NORTH CAROLINIANS – “WE THE PEOPLE.” THIS IS WHY, NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY; NOT MATTER WHAT GAMES THEY PLAY – WE ARE GOING “FORWARD TOGETHER – NOT ONE STEP BACK!” FORWARD TODAY, FORWARD TOMORROW; FORWARD FOREVER!

Thank you for allowing God to use you to show up and show out! Thank you for letting God use you to show North Carolina and show the world what the true faces of LOVE, UNITY, TRUTH, JUSTICE, and DEMOCRACY – ENOUGH LIES AND HYPOCRISY!

WE ARE WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW – LOVE SWEET LOVE! LOVE FOR THE LEAST; LOVE FOR THE LESS; LOVE FOR THE OPPRESSED!

CONGRATULATIONS TO REV. DR. WILLIAM J. BARBER, II, AND THE FORWARD TOGETHER MORAL MOVEMENT, WHICH INCLUDES YOU AND THE MIGHTY HKONJ COALITION!!!
