John Kerry did himself, the office of Secretary of State and the President of the United States PROUD, December 28, 2016

Kerry to Israel: We support you but can't defend ‘right-wing’ agenda

In a hard-hitting speech, the secretary of state says, ‘My job above all is to defend the United States of America.'


United States America
It is important that Americans LISTEN to this video, then let their elected representatives in Congress know that America has bent over backward to support our brothers and sisters in Israel in their quest for coexistence with their Palestinian neighbors. 

We do not support APARTHEID by any country.

We have a 2017 funding of over $28 billion dollars for Israel when we have so many Americans mired in Enduring Concentrated Poverty, our justice systems need immediate changes to ensure that African American and other People of Color are treated with equity, to work against the historic "apartheid" race intensity in America, to upgrade our roads and byways, create gainful employment for ALL and to protect America from terrorism..

We do not appreciate or accept disrespect to our 44th President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama - the way Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did in 2015 with the traitorous Invitation of John Boehner, US Speaker of the House.  PM Netanyahu's behavior then just as his behavior now with Donald Trump - President-Elect will come to haunt him.  It is a matter of "wrongful protocol" and NOT obeying the Golden Rule.

Make no mistake about it, We the People, can not sit idle and fail to let the powers to be know that there is NO pass here.

Secretary of State John Kerry has done our country proud by giving a historic and factual account of the recent vote by the USA as well as the HOW/WHEN/WHY of the decision.

We thank you POTUS Barack Obama and Secretary John Kerry.

What Christmas Means To Me - Steve Wonder

What Christmas Means To Me
Oh yeah
Candles burning low
Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice
Everywhere we go
Choir singing carols
Right outside my door
All these things and more, oh
That's what Christmas means to me my love
And you what I mean
I see your smiling face
Like I've never seen before
Even though I love you madly
It seems I love you more
The little card you give me
Will touch my heart for sure
All these things and more, darling
Oh, that's what Christmas means to me my love
That's what Christmas means to me my love
I feel like running wild
Those angels a little shy
I greet you 'neath the mistletoe
I kiss you once and then some more
I wish you merry Christmas baby
Oh and such happiness in the coming year, oh baby
Let's deck the halls with holly
Sings with Silent Night
Fill the dreams with angel hair
Pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight
All these things and more
Oh that's what Christmas means to me my love
That's what Christmas means to me my love (oh baby baby)
Yeah
Candles burning low
Lots of snow and ice
Christmas bells are ringing
And Christmas choirs are singing

And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love;
And wonders of His love;
And wonders, wonders of His love.

Prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

***********************************

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It always seems impossible until it's done.   NELSON MANDELA

CITY CHANNEL MEETINGS - December 19, 2016 - January 1, 2017

CATCH UP - KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SPENDING MONEY FOR and WHAT YOU ARE GETTING
*********************************


"All Hands on Deck Call for Milwaukeeans - To change the quality of life, economic development issues that are systemic in the city of Milwaukee  - 'FAIT ACCOMPLI' style government, YOU, the Citizenry of Milwaukee MUST BE  active and INFORMED 'Stewards'."


Mary Glass - MPA LLC

***************************



WARRANT WITHDRAWAL WEDNESDAY - These are Milwaukeeans that have found the Municipal system lacking in Sigma 6 efficiencies.  It appears that the African-American population, the highest unemployed constituents in Milwaukee, are the brunt of those who have "unpaid fines" that in some cases meant "loss of licenses" (disruptive in travel). 


One of the issues conveyed is that the "indigent" law has not been part of the dispositions of members of Municipal Court ( Judges Phillip Chavez, Valarie Hill and Derek Mosley).  It is also evident that the "indigent" law with Justice Point is burdensome and in NEED of tweaking.  


The TWEAKING must come from you, the citizenry, end-recipients, electorate, and taxpayers.   Click Edgar Mendez for MORE.

The Republican Sabotage of the Vote Recounts in Michigan and Wisconsin

Saturday, 17 December 2016 00:00By Greg Palast, Truthout | Report
Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate, speaks at to reporters about the vote recount efforts she's leading, in New York, December 5, 2016. In Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, Stein called the process is a "political horror show," saying that "the recount itself is not accurate, secure and just, and it reflects that we have a voting system that is seriously flawed." (Photo: Sam Hodgson / The New York Times)

Jill Stein's Recount for votes in the state of Michigan seems to have hit a bump in clarity while visiting Detroit and Flint.


**************************

See what you think about the article by Truthout.

Michigan officials declared in late November that Trump won the state's count by 10,704 votes. But hold on -- a record 75,355 ballots were not counted.
The uncounted ballots came mostly from Detroit and Flint, majority-Black cities that vote Democratic.
According to the machines that read their ballots, these voters waited in line, sometimes for hours, yet did not choose a president. Really?

Remembering STEVE BIKO, The South African Warrior of Consciousness

Stephen Bantu Biko died in a prison cell in Pretoria

The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.
Being black is not a matter of pigmentation - being black is a reflection of a mental attitude.
Black Consciousness is an attitude of the mind and a way of life, the most positive call to emanate from the black world for a long time.   Steve Biko

**************************************************************

                                         Born:                December 18, 1946           
                                        Assassinated:  September 12, 1977

Stephen Bantu Biko was an anti-apartheid activist in South Africa in the 1960s and 1970s. A student leader, he later founded the Black Consciousness Movement which would empower and mobilize much of the urban black population. Wikipedia

Today, we remember Steve Biko and learn about his legacy.



Thank you Google for Remembering.

IN THE NEWS TODAY

Oil prices were surging about 4.5 percent in early morning trading, to their highest levels since July 2015, after OPEC and other producers over the weekend reached their first output cut deal since 2001. (CNBC)

As crude soared, fueling expectations of higher inflation, the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury pushed above 2.5 percent for the first time in more than 2 years. (WSJ)

U.S. stock futures were searching for direction this morning, after the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq all finished higher every day last week, the first time that's happened in about 5-½ years. (CNBC)

The Dow stands in record territory, after the blue chip average on Fridaysaw its 14th record closing high since the election. Since Donald Trump won the presidency, the Dow has gained nearly 7.8 percent. (CNBC)

The Fed kicks off its two-day December meeting tomorrow, with central bankers widely expected to increase interest rates. Policymakers last hiked in December 2015, the first such move in more than nine years. (CNBC)

A crackdown by Chinese regulators on stock purchases by insurance firms sent shares in Shanghai down about 2.5 percent, and in Shenzhen lower by nearly 5 percent. (MarketWatch)

Trump attracted criticism from China , after saying in a Fox News interview the U.S. did not necessarily have to stick to the "One China" policy. China said it cannot "be easily bullied." (CNBC) 

Trump dismissed a CIA assessment that Russia provided WikiLeaks hacked emails in order to help him win the election. "I think it's ridiculous," the president-elect said in an interview with Fox News. (CNBC)

Exxon (XON) Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson, who's said to be Trump's top choice for secretary of state, faces bipartisan resistance in Congress over his ties to Russia's Vladimir Putin. (WSJ)

Boeing (BA) said "tens of thousands of U.S. jobs" would be supported in a $16.6 billion deal with Iran, perhaps speaking to Trump, who's threatened to tear up the nuclear accord that makes the deal possible. (NY Times) 

Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg are among the small group of top tech leaders set to attend a summit with Trump on Wednesday. (Recode)

Top business leaders — including Microsoft's Bill Gates, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, and Alibaba's Jack Ma — are launching a new fund today to invest over $1 billion in "next generation energy technologies." (CNBC)

Millions of people were bracing for a week of hazardous conditions from bitterly cold temperatures and a snowstorm that already caused travel chaos and flight cancellations. (NBC News)

BY THE NUMBERS

The government issues its November federal budget statement at 2 p.m. ET. VeriFone Systems (PAY) is among the few companies set to report earnings this afternoon. 

Studies showed combining Novartis (NVS) drugs Lucentis and Fovista did not produce any better results for certain macular degeneration patients than Lucentis alone.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) could see a 20 percent rally in its stock, according Barron's, which also said J&J is less susceptible to possible cuts in drug and medical device pricing.

STOCKS TO WATCH

An International Trade Commission judge has ruled Arista Networks (ANET) infringed on several more Ethernet switch patents held by Silicon Valley rival and Dow component Cisco Systems (CSCO).

KKR (KKR) is in talks to sell drug delivery company Capsugel to Switzerland's Lonza Group in what could be a more than $5 billion deal. 

Apollo Global (APO) is buying the 80.1 percent stake that Philips (PHG) holds in Lumileds, the company's LED components and car lighting business, for $1.5 billion in cash. 

Volkswagen (VLKAY) was accused by the Federal Trade Commission of erasing or losing 23 mobile phones of key employees, in the wake of the company's diesel emissions scandal.

21st Century Fox's (FOXA) bid to buy British TV provider Sky for $14 billion could run into a roadblock, with a major investor saying he'll vote against the deal and another saying he's unhappy about the size of the offer.

WATERCOOLER

Ahead of next weekend's debut of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," Disney's (DIS) "Moana" topped the box office for the third consecutive weekend, pulling in another $18.8 million in North American ticket sales. (AP)
