“Don’t Bother Me: I’m Coon Huntin”

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War)

The first narrative in 100 Years of Lynching was about Coweta County, Georgia. This lynching gave Dr. W.E.B. DuBois a new perspective on white supremacy but it would take a long time for it to sink in. At the time, he was a professor at Atlanta University. The term “picnic” arose out of this lynching. It was a “picnic.” The victim was like Dred Scott. He was demanding his hard-earned wages.

Growing up in Coweta County, I remember “crackers” driving around in pick-up trucks with gun racks on their rear windows and racially-derogatory tags on their front bumpers.” “Cracker,” for them, is a term of endearment. President Jimmy Carter concurs.

Georgia law required only one tag on a vehicle and it should be placed below the trunk. The tag on the front of the vehicle would read: “Don’t Bother Me: I’m Coon Huntin.” All of Benjamin Crump’s clients, like all of us, are considered as “coons.” Hunting season is 24-7. Thousands of hooded Klansmen had a “March on Washington” in 1925. They opposed Cong. Dyer’s federal anti-lynching bill. The KKK is now acting under “color of law.”

Rev. Al Sharpton attended Tilden High School in Brooklyn. It was named after racist Gov. Samuel Tilden of New York. In 1877, Tilden became known for the problem that we are still suffering from today. It has handcuffed President Barack Obama and it has made me a victim of “judicial bullying” which is now supported by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Sharpton’s job, in league with the white media, is to divert attention away from the culprits and take free speech out of the streets. I may still be practicing law today if I had not defied the Compromise of 1877. The enactment of our “civil rights” legislation lasted for only a decade. See, Civil Rights Act of 1866. The U.S. Justice Department was established in 1870 to put a “brake” on them.

Whites enjoy natural rights. The descendants of enslaved Africans, on December 13, 2014, will be re-certifying, in D.C., their status as “second-class” citizens. This class originally was certified in 1857 and it was re-certified in 1896 when the U.S. Supreme Court “duped” and “spooked” us. Dred Scott was dictum. Plessy v. Ferguson was a judicial fallacy.

Ferguson, the respondent in the U.S. Supreme Court, was related to the namesake for Ferguson, MO. Plessy v. Ferguson has revived racial classifications. Nothing is coincidental. It is no accident that Michael Brown was assassinated in Missouri, the home of Dred Scott.

The real date for protest is the 123rd anniversary of the Bill of Rights, December 15, 2014. All eyes should be on this date and NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman should be asked to explain why a grand jury, in Richmond County, NY was given “slave instructions” like in People v. John White.

Schneiderman has authority over grand juries, special prosecutors and the administration of justice. He should start by extirpating judicial gerrymandering. Public Advocate Letitia James is purportedly seeking a court order to unseal the grand jury transcripts in Garner. As Democrats, they should share the same mission.

This is why, through a letter to Chief Administrative Judge Fern Fisher of the Supreme Court – Civil Branch in Manhattan that, NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and NYC Public Advocate Letitia James were asked to show cause on December 15, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Manhattan Civil Court about the general “enforcement” of the Bill of Rights in New York.

Blacks must start knocking on the right door, talking to the right people and asking the right questions. Their offices should be flooded with e-mails over this week-end. It is cheaper than going to D.C. and financing our own oppression. This legal revolution will start with your computer and your telephone. Calling all families, friends, neighbors and co-workers about these public officials being in Manhattan Civil Court is a start. Public officials should love the public. They do at polling sites.

Demand a Pardon for Ramsey Orta Now!

This is the holiday season, when a governor issues out pardons. It is interesting that persons who seek justice for Eric Garner are comfortable with Ramsey Orta facing a criminal conviction in retaliation for him recording the chokehold death of Eric Garner. This lack of concern for Orta is not harmless.

The New York Police Department conducted a pre-emptive strike to undercut the quality of the evidence presented to the Eric Garner grand jury. The admissibility of any recording depends on laying a foundation and that turns on the credibility of a witness. If a person has a criminal record, a juror may disregard the testimony and the record

If a witness has a criminal record, a juror may disregard the testimony and the recording. This happened in the first grand jury investigation of Garner’s chokehold death and it could reoccur in an investigation by a federal grand jury searching for civil rights violations.

In the death of Michael Stewart, the first grand jury returned a no true bill. Louis Clayton Jones, Michael Warren and I made a second stab at an indictment. We succeeded. These rogue cops had to face a jury in a full-blown trial. It represents long hours of work.

Stewart represents the fact that “one and done” is sometimes insufficient. We went round-the-clock to secure indictments against rogue cops in Manhattan. With a committed group, it could happen in Staten Island. Cuomo should pardon Orta this month.

Going to Washington, DC should be a matter of last resort. A state prosecution is preferable. Rodney King stands for the proposition that the federal government will only act if you burn down your community. The exception is Yankel Rosenbaum.

The federal government prosecuted Lemrick Nelson in federal court on civil rights violations after he had secured an acquittal in Brooklyn Supreme Court on a murder rap. Jews were not seen chanting and marching in D.C. They were twisting arms in New York. Civil rights legislation was initially enacted for the protection of Blacks. Now, we are out of the loop.

Ramsey Orta will have to appear in Richmond County Supreme Court on January 22, 2015 on a trumped-up firearms charge. Instead of going to Washington, DC, pressure should be put on Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Albany, NY to give a full pardon to Orta for the retaliatory misconduct by the NYPD. A pardon is designed to avoid an injustice.

A pardon, continued protests and the appointment of a special prosecutor would give a clear signal to the residents of Staten Island that they should refrain from protecting rogue cops. “Marching feet” in Washington, DC will also not do the trick. This is nothing but a “wild goose chase” in D.C. to boost media ratings for racial racketeers. “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” A demand is a declarative statement and it ends with “or else.”

After the 2:00 p.m. court hearing in Manhattan Civil Court on Monday, December 15, 2014 a meeting will occur with Ramsey Orta present to discuss plans for a pardon for Orta. This pardon will help a state grand jury investigation and also any federal grand jury investigation. Orta’s testimony is as critical to a criminal prosecution as his recording was to the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

The above-mentioned efforts should arise from a grassroots movement. To give legs to those demands, calls should be made to the NYS Attorney General at: (212) 416-8000 and the New York Public Advocate at (212) 669-7200 to personally appear in Manhattan Civil Court on Monday at 2:00 p.m. Demands should also be made on all elected officials and public officials by phone or on the internet: the office of NYS Attorney General at http://www.ag.ny.gov/questions-comments-attorney-general-eric-t-schneiderman and the office of NYC Public advocate at: outreach@pubadvocate.nyc.gov.

Blacks in New York are Turning Deaf Ears to Black Victims

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

After I was fired from Harlem Assertion of Rights in 1976 for refusing to betray the parents and students of Cooper Junior High School, 120th Street and Madison Avenue in Harlem, I started to practice criminal law. This firing had been prompted by the “Gang of Four” to satisfy the racism of Mayor Abe Beame. Any public school, of Black students, that was succeeding, had to be closed.

When I started the practice of criminal law, the court system was a “police state.” Black lawyers were forbidden from sitting on the front benches and their clients had to wait until the cases of white lawyers had been called. When a Black defendant was on trial and requested water, the court officers would always fill the pitcher with water from the toilet. No one had the temerity to complain except myself.

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau summoned me to his office. My “constructive” escorts were Cong. Charles Rangel and the late NYS Secretary of State Basil Paterson. Dr. Calvin Butts, C. Vernon Mason and Sterling Johnson, the special narcotics prosecutor, and now a federal judge, heard Morgenthau read me the “riot act.” I must learn to behave like all Black judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers and law enforcement officers –or else.

Afterwards, Morgenthau would falsely charge me with assaulting court officers and obstructing justice. I would also be prosecuted on a false disciplinary complaint after I had beaten the criminal charges in Manhattan. No hearing was held but this unproved charge and conviction provided the basis for an illegal, five-year suspension on August 1, 1994, from the practice of law. This illegal suspension resulted from a judicial conspiracy.

Now, New York, without according me any semblance of a hearing, is claiming in Brooklyn Federal Court that I was disbarred in 1994. At worst, I should have been reinstated to the practice of law in July 1999. The suspension order of August 1, 1990, in providing the basis for a five-year suspension, falsely represented that I had been disciplined in Brooklyn for assaulting the court officers. I had not.

I was acquitted, after a jury trial, in People v. Maddox. A five year suspension was not only arbitrary and capricious but also cruel and unusual. It has amounted to an “indefinite suspension” from the practice of law. This illegal suspension is akin to the “indefinite suspension” of Ray Rice from the Baltimore Ravens.

This judicial conspiracy was extended to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. A separate license to practice law existed in Brooklyn Federal Court and in Manhattan Federal Court. I am still licensed to practice law in any federal court.

This is why the City of New York rushed into Manhattan Federal Court on September 6, 2014 to settle the so-called “Central Park 5″ while I was in Staten Island because of People v. Ramsey Orta, the videographer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. I have never been accorded a hearing in any federal court. The settlement hearing was initially scheduled for October 2014 at the earliest.

Twenty-seven years ago, Tawana Brawley was found with her body smeared with feces and bearing racial epithets and exhibiting other evidence of having been raped. Black people have refused to perceive this rape as a class action or a derivative action. Instead, it is a personal injury action.

After a key, female official of National Action Network was also raped by ten men, no one in the Black community sees it as a class action. Ten condoms were found at the crime scene. She was also drugged. The white prosecutor has refused to prosecute the white conductor of the “freight train,” Sanford Rubenstein and attorney for National Action Network.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is now saying that this is another false allegation against white men. He said the same thing after DSK of the IMF had raped Nafissatou Diallo in his hotel room in Manhattan. Instead of a judge dismissing the indictment, according to law, he, instead, unilaterally and illegally dismissed her claim as being perjurious. Now, Bill Cosby is being “fried” on belated and time-barred accusations by white women.

On WWW.REINSTATEALTONMADDOX.COM, I write journal-like articles almost daily at a cost of Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly, at my expense, to enlighten my people. Most Blacks are in prison not because of race but because of ignorance of the law. Whites do not have to play the “race card.” This website seeks to substantially reduce the number of persons entering in the prison-industrial complex.

Only one percent of the persons who receive these “missiles,” as Sis. Utrice Leid describes them, make any donation of any kind to support the website to combat state-sponsored violence and the prison-industrial complex. If I could find investors who would give me temporary relief, I would be able to help Tawana who is impoverished, unemployed, and destitute and has a child. While white women were fashioning a Women’s Equality Agenda for Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Black women chose to keep quiet. No help is accruing to Tawana Brawley.

White supremacy is a class action because it is an action against a class of descendants of enslaved Africans. Predators, acting under color of law, are not only jeopardizing our daughters but also our unarmed sons. So far, no Black father of a victim has taken any action against a white supremacist. Of course, any response should be a group action and not an individual action.

I agreed to provide pro bono representation to the Brawley family. Steven Pagones is unable to show that New York had subject-matter jurisdiction over his claims. I was also able to convince the jury in Pagones v. Maddox, et. al. that Pagones was one of the attackers. Yet, Pagones is able to convince the Commonwealth of Virginia that Tawana should be subject to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. I satisfied my part of the bargain. Now, the Black community must step up to the plate. Tawana Brawley also needs an attorney.

Eric Garner:

without comments

Personal Justice or Distributive Justice?

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

The illegal, chokehold death of Eric Garner on July 17, 2014 by “rogue members” of the New York Police Department is actually a class action because it is an action directed at a particular class but ambulance chasers have chosen to depict it as a personal injury action. A hubcap case is also a personal injury action.

In a class action, a settlement requires that justice is extended to the class before compensation is granted to the victim. Among other things, there must be a deterrent component in the settlement to give the class an opportunity to protect itself against future occurrences. A perpetrator must feel the wrath of the class. The “Central Park 7″ should have been a class action.

Ramsey Orta videotaped the chokehold death of Eric Garner. As should have been predicted, the New York Police Department falsely arrested and immediately indicted Orta. This is of no moment for an “ambulance chaser” who, by definition, elevates “hush money” over justice. An ambulance chaser makes no waves. It is all about “hush money.”

A human rights attorney would not leave Orta unprotected in People v. Ramsey Orta, Ind. No. 162 (Sup. Ct., Richmond Co. 2014). The first priority would be to send the “rogue cops” to prison. This is the ultimate punishment. With criminal records, “rogue cops” would be unable to act under color of law again. If Ramsey Orta is wrongfully convicted, a successful, criminal prosecution of the “rogue cops” would be unlikely.

In violation of Orta’s Sixth Amendment right, New York has chosen to assign a former assistant district attorney in Richmond County to represent him. This is a conflict of interest but it will happen if Blacks continue to believe that the chokehold death of Eric Garner is a personal injury action and not a class action.

When the “Central Park 7″ was indicted in 1989, only four Black lawyers answered the bell even though every Black lawyer should have filed a notice of appearance in Manhattan Supreme Court. The four lawyers were disciplined for not behaving as “slaves.” Three were disbarred.

All Black lawyers and Black selected officials should make it their business to be at the Richmond County Supreme Court, 18 Richmond Terrace in Staten Island, Part 6 at 9:30 a.m. Give them a ring early and often on Thursday. It is their job. As oath-takers, justice should be their number one priority.

I received a regrettable call Wednesday evening. A true warrior in the legal profession had made his transition. He was in a special class and you knew he had your back. He was also an associate of Louis Clayton Jones and Chokwe Lumumba, revered ancestors.

With them, you were picking in high cotton. I am thankful that Sis. Karen Mason made it possible for me to be in Chicago on Thursday. I will see everyone on Saturday morning at Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue.

Call a Black attorney in addition to Eric Garner’s attorney and give notice of Orta’s court appearance and Black Solidarity Weekend. The prosecution is a class action directed at all Blacks and Latinos. Orta is the victim. All Blacks and Latinos are the targets. It is Orta today. It may be you tomorrow. Who will have your back?

Politics: A Business or a Hobby?

without comments

SONY DSC

 

by Alton H Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

The political system emulates the legal system. Lawyers drafted both systems and they are alike in many respects. Voters are required, as groups, and not as individuals, to submit responsive pleadings. In law, it would be called an answer. In politics, it is called an agenda. A group, that fails to make a demand through an agenda, defaults. Politics, for that group, morphs into a beauty contest.

A candidate who is viewed as a beauty contestant owes zero to voters. This happened to Blacks in New York City in 2013. Even though they voted overwhelmingly for William de Blasio and their vote was critical to his election, Black voters had failed to convene a political convention and file a political agenda. For Blacks, de Blasio went from being a candidate to becoming a beauty contestant.

Among other things, Blacks were enthralled with “jungle fever.” While Blacks were still spell-bound, de Blasio refused to appoint any Black person to a key position in his mayoral administration and, instead, contrary to Black emotions, appointed William Bratton as police commissioner.

Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani first introduced Bratton to New York City to extirpate Blacks. De Blasio’s plan is to revive both former Mayors Ed Koch and Giuliani. Blacks hated both of these men and they hated Blacks. Bratton is changing his style but unjust laws are still on the books.

Before the 2013 General Election, the Freedom Party sponsored an unpublicized political seminar in October 2013. I used this occasion to do political forecast. Censorship kept Blacks from hearing it, however. Voting is like any outdoor sport. You must employ a meteorologist.

With support from “Friends of Alton Maddox,” I used an ad in the Am News to show that Bratton was a bad fit for Blacks. If Black voters had read this ad before going to the polls, Eric Garner might still be alive. No other Black person publicly sounded the alarm.

Since my arrival in New York City, I have never seen or heard of any Black person who either drafted a political agenda or sponsored a political convention. In the meantime, I have never witnessed Blacks securing anything but political crumbs from the white power structure. History will definitely repeat itself on November 4, 2014 if Blacks, in New York City, remain wedded to “plantation politics.”

The handwriting is definitely on the wall. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor of the U.S. Supreme Court gave Blacks the first clue. Afterwards, the “High Court” gutted the key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Attorney General Eric Holder is about to escape the cuckoo’s nest and the Congressional Black Caucus has no intention of drafting, for Blacks, an enforcement provision for the Fifteenth Amendment.

During slavery, the United States was known as a democracy but it was actually a timocracy. Without an enforcement provision for the Fifteenth Amendment, Blacks will suffer a gradual loss of voting rights. The Supreme Court decisions of Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC are paving the way.

In addition to a public library, the Black community needs a law library because the “High Court” renders decisions that are game changers. For example, Plessy v. Ferguson was a game changer. Dred Scott had also been a game changer. Today, Blacks are still unaware of the meaning of Harlan’s dissent in Plessy and the legal and political ramifications of Dred Scott.

The campaign financing decisions have reverted Black voting rights back to eighteen century timocracy. This amounts to slavery. Black’s Law Dictionary defines timocracy as “as aristocracy of property; government by propertied, relatively rich people.”

The “High Court” has given the signal for the aristocracy to amass a war chest against “social parasites.” The white power structure is fearful that “termites” will overrun the government while Blacks will enjoy the balance of power like in New York City.

My people must eventually recognize that nothing in life should be free. Frederick Douglass said its best: “You may not get everything you pay for but you will pay for everything you get.” He also said that “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has and it never will.”

Douglass was referring to a political agenda. Blacks had started political conventions before the Civil War and before either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party had sponsored one. Like it or not, the rules of engagement in this country are listed in the U.S. Constitution. A constitutional scholar, and not a rhetorician, is needed to construe it.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.”

Gov. Cuomo Was Out of Bounds in Afghanistan

Somebody should throw a flag. This is political football. In order for American politics to work, some institution needs to serve as a referee. A free press is missing in the Black community. Thus, no one is present to keep white supremacists honest. This is why Black should be offended when any media outlet practices censorship.

Today, my role is that of an educator, instead of litigator, since the Black community is willing to tolerate “judicial bullying” against an attorney who was not a felon, who had never been cited for contempt of court and who had never been charged with betraying a client.

In the meantime, white felons have permeated the judicial system to the detriment of Blacks. They are routinely fleecing their clients. Blacks deserve better legal representation. For white felons, the practice of law is engendering full employment.

Reportedly Gov. Cuomo secretly embarked on a trip to Afghanistan last week. His fellow travelers are Bill Haslan, Republican of Tennessee, Brian Sandavol, Republican of Nevada and Jay Nixon, Democrat of Missouri. All of these governors are from states that are either enrolled in or is a sympathizer of the Confederate States of America.

This is a rank conspiracy against President Barack Obama. These governors have no constitutional basis for enjoying a political junket to Afghanistan. The U.S. Supreme Court certainly settled, in Curtiss-Wright Expert Corp. v. United States, that “the president of the United States had ‘plenary’ powers in the foreign affairs field not dependent upon congressional delegation.”

Gov. Cuomo had as much business going to Afghanistan as Mayor Michael Bloomberg would have had in going to Virginia and telling the National Rifle Association to stop marketing guns. States rights would have blocked Bloomberg and the U.S. Constitution is blocking Cuomo from interfering with foreign affairs.

As constitutional oathtakers, both Cuomo and Nixon have their hands full enforcing the U.S. Constitution unless Dred Scott is still the law of the land. Michael Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner was choked to death in Staten Island, NY. Police officers were the criminal agents in both cases.

Both Cuomo and Nixon are lawyers and former state attorneys general. They are both aware that when cement hardens, arrests are ripe. No arrests have happened in either Ferguson or Staten Island. Instead, a grand jury in both states is being given the opportunity to review probable cause and not to seek indictments. This is impermissible under the law. It means that no one will have to account for two senseless deaths.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.”

White Paternalism and Negro Politics

by Alton H Maddox, Jr.

(“Attorney-at-War”)

Rev. James Bevel, lieutenant of Dr. Martin L. King Jr., hit the nail on the head. Black selected officials in New York are ignorant because the Black masses are ignorant. Intelligent voters would not have ignoramuses representing them except in New York . Black voters in New York believe that you only need physical strength to pull down the levers in a voting booth to get a positive result.

No need for any person who attends a court proceeding to have some knowledge of the legal process and the U.S. Constitution. Blacks retain shysters to navigate them through an indictment. These lawyers meet them in hallways of courthouses to discuss plea deals. A successful criminal defendant will retain a “silver rights” attorney and sue for false arrest.

Planning in advance of a General Election is important. You need to do more than read the endorsements in the New York Amsterdam News to be ready to do political battle in the voting booth. These voters are unable to distinguish between a tabloid and a trade journal. Blacks rely on tabloids for political information without enjoying any benefits of voter education and political education.

Voters must also distinguish between voter education and political education. An informed voter in New York must have a copy of the New York Election Law, the U.S. Constitution and Black’s Law Dictionary. This voter should also read articles in a trade journal to understand the political process.

Blacks from the South were told that if you wanted a good education, you need to pack your bags and follow the North Star. Some of my relatives also “bit the bullet.” They were intelligent but many of them fell through the cracks when they were thrown in the prison pipeline. New York is only one of two states that automatically prosecute children under eighteen years of age as adults. Black parents refuse to address this issue in a Black Agenda or at a political convention. See “Central Park 7.”

Their lives are destroyed ab initio as children. A blue ribbon commission had found that New York’s judicial system is “infested with racism.” Not a single Black, selected official has expressed any concern about “racism” in the judicial system. This means that Blacks in New York have a comfortable mindset of living on plantations. Master-slave law only requires obedience. Blacks approve of “judicial racism” and “judicial bullying.”

Black voters in New York are unaware that an agenda must precede voting. I may be the only exception. They are prepared to rush into polling booths without an agenda. These voters “favor freedom yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground …. “See Frederick Douglass ”

Under the “separation of powers” doctrine, each of the three branches of government must has an agenda. The executive branch of government drafts an agenda in January. It is called the “State of the Union” address. The legislative branch of government follows. The U.S. Supreme Court announces its agenda on the first Monday of every October.

Special interest groups also have agendas. Every special interest group bet on, at least, one of the three branches of government to deliver the goods. There may also be an executive strategy, a legislative strategy and a judicial strategy. If a special interest group engages in “petty cash,” it is one size fits all. This applies to Blacks. In any event, everyone else pays to play. Social parasites have no influence in voting booths.

White women have fashioned a political agenda for November 4, 2014 and Gov. Cuomo is promoting it on the political stump. Latinos have fashioned the “Dream Act” and Gov. Cuomo is promoting it also. Although Blacks have refused to fashion or endorse a Black Agenda, no other ethnic or special interest group will beat them running to the polls on November 4. We are good, financially and politically, for everybody but ourselves.

Supporters of 2014 Black Agenda are having a difficult time framing a political agenda. I have given some additional instructions. Hopefully, these attached instructions will assist this committee of the Freedom Party. A political party is a group right. The group must fashion a 2014 Black Agenda.

This is new and uncharted territory for Blacks. We are in dire need of voter and political education. Black selected officials are of no HELP. “The blind is leading the blind.” Black voters need HELP. Whites no longer need Blacks. See the New World Order. Blacks are on a path to genocide. Blacks love their enemies and hate their friends. Whites operate in reverse fashion.

With respect to Ebola, President Barack Obama talks about having a protocol and following a protocol. With respect to politics, Blacks do not have a protocol. Therefore, Blacks are unable to pursue a political agenda. The result is the same as it is in medicine: lacking a medical protocol to combat Ebola. Politics is not only hazardous but it is also deadly.

I will be at the Brooklyn Christian Center in Brooklyn on this Wednesday evening to briefly discuss: “No Black Political Convention: No Need for Blacks to Vote.” On Thursday, “Behind the Bench” has obviously, if not impliedly, canceled my scheduled lecture — “Sharpton: Victim or Target” — at the Harlem Public Library in Harlem. Deception is a tool in military science. It is being used against Al Sharpton.

There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.” “Freedom is not free.” No one should ride the back of another person.

Requiem for an Informed Voter

HELP (History, Ethics, Logic and Philosophy) constitutes the four cornerstones of politics. All of these cornerstones are essential to participating in politics. Militarism is essential to protecting these cornerstones. It is essential that the guardians of politics must understand military science. This is the reason for “separation of church and state.”

In order to understand politics from a constitutional perspective, it is essential to employ a constitutional scholar. The political base for politics is the First Amendment. This amendment was a critical for securing civil rights. The rights of free speech and free associations are critical elements of politics and they are critical elements of the First Amendment.

The mere fact that an illiterate voter can go into a polling booth does not mean that an uninformed voter should be permitted into a polling booth. There is a big difference between an illiterate voter and an uninformed voter. Kudos should be extended to Bruce Copney for providing free copies of the U.S. Constitution to political cadets.

Like it or not, the U.S. Constitution constitutes political rules of engagement. Militarism requires a working knowledge of the rules of engagement. No agenda can be fashioned without a working knowledge of these rules. An agenda is tantamount to an answer. A party who fails to file an answer defaults. An agenda provides the reasons for going to the polls.

No agenda can be fashioned without a political convention. Black’s Law Dictionary defines a “convention” as a “deliberative assembly” for the purpose of “framing” issues as a condition precedent to voting. An issue allows voters to decide the allocation of resources and who benefits from the allocation of resources. No voter should be picking “beauty contestants.” A chosen candidate should be able to “bring home the bacon.”

The assembly on Saturday went into a working session later to outline to Gov. Andrew Cuomo the critical issues affecting Blacks as a group. It started with “taxation without representation.” Black selected officials have failed to fashion a Black Agenda. “Plantation politics” is just fine. Blacks do all the heavy work and whites enjoy all the benefits.

Today, our plight is worse than it was in slavery. During slavery, for example, full employment and free health care were available. Lynching and chokeholds, unless a “slave” acquired jungle fever, were not used. You could “Tom” your way into the Big House. “Slaves” were not required to pay taxes of any kind. Today, “the power to tax is the power to destroy.”

The next step for the planning session is to conduct discovery. Black selected officials have no right to block access to information. This must be done, first, through interrogatories. Pre-action disclosure is permissible under the Civil Practice Law and Rules. Voting is a “class action.” Effective voting for an ethnic group is impossible without ethics. The Black community must fashion a “code of ethics.”

I introduced the need for a “code of ethics” in June 1987 at House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn when it was proposed that Rev. Al Sharpton was the problem. Sharpton was not the problem. The absence of a “code of ethics” was then and still is the problem today. For Blacks, ethics is the glue that can bind us together. The reason why Blacks do not stick together can be attributed to being glueless and clueless. To make matters worse, Black will not “listen,” according to Dr. John Henrik Clarke.

While Black voters may go to the polls on November 4, they should not go to the polls uninformed. “Political tricks” have always done us in. Our leaders are “moonlighting” as pimps for white johns many of whom are felons but are, nonetheless, allowed to practice law in New York State while the prison-industrial complex is busting at the seams. Only a Black Agenda will stop mass incarceration.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software and to resume the practice of law as the private attorney general without “judicial bullying.” “Freedom is not free.” No one should ride the back of another person.

Ferguson: “Plantation Politics” or “Black Power”

without comments

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

I learned at Central High School in Newnan, Georgia that critical thinking requires a mastery of fractions in order to call things by their right names. The object is to reduce a fraction to its lowest common denominator. I would apply this approach to all of my high school courses. If I had not been a “militant,” I may have probably been the valedictorian of my graduating class.

Central High School was blessed with excellent instructors but it had a common flaw. A student’s GPA depended on a teacher’s forecast of a Black student’s amenability to “white supremacy” and “deportment.” It was clear that I had a problem embracing white supremacy. I would have become an embarrassment, in the future, to those teachers. I also was not in the “top ten” in my class academically due to militancy.

Blacks in New York City employ the same approach at the polls. They have learned and steadfastly embrace the “white primary” system to endorse the selection of their political representatives by white supremacists. Over a period of time, Cong. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. became a political embarrassment to voters in Harlem despite his unprecedented, legislative achievements in Congress. This is “plantation politics” at its best.

In Powell v. McCormack, in 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Cong. Adam Clayton Powell’s Jr.’s lawsuit was “ripe” against the doorkeepers and sergeant-at-arms since he had met all of the qualifications under Art. 1, sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution. Congress, however, was not a proper party. The Court, retroactively, noted that a vote to exclude could not become a vote to expel. Powell would be fined and stripped of his seniority.

It is of great interest that Black voters in Harlem would give great deference to a “High Court” that penned the infamous dictum in Dred Scott. They did. Charles Rangel defeated Powell in 1970 and sent him packing to Bimini –heartbroken. Even without seniority, Powell was a better bet than Rangel but white supremacists had spoken.

Powell v. McCormack was only the tip of the iceberg. Cong. Powell had held a Black Power Conference on Capitol Hill in 1966. Powell was ousted as chairman of the House and Education and Welfare Committee on January 9, 1967. When you connect the dots, it is not surprising that Congress acted with great haste. Powell was bent on replacing “plantation politics” with “Black Power” and forming a “People’s Party.”

In the meantime, Blacks in Ferguson have sought to replace “Negroism” with justice. Every legal system in the United States is not only corrupt but also racist. Robert McCulloch, the district attorney in St. Louis County, is no exception. Missouri is unprepared or unwilling to give its Black residents of Ferguson even a modicum of justice by relieving McCulloch of his duties for investigating the death of Michael Brown by P.O. Darren Wilson.

Probable cause has already been established for the death of Brown. Unless the slave code is still in effect in Missouri, descendants of enslaved Africans witnessed the murder. Scientific evidence will also establish a homicide. Eyewitness evidence plus scientific evidence supports probable cause for an immediate arrest of Wilson under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Similarly, probable cause also exists for the immediate arrest of P.O. Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY. The cause of death was a chokehold. The manner of death was homicide. A videotape not only recorded the chokehold but also the rogue cops who either applied or assisted in applying the chokehold.

The executive branch of government not only has the responsibility to enforce the law but also the responsibility to relieve any prosecutor who refuses to enforce the law. Probable cause under the Fourth Amendment requires an immediate arrest. No police officer is entitled to a second bite at the apple. The grand jury must never be employed as an “appellate court” to review probable cause.

In both Missouri and in New York, the local prosecutors have refused to enforce the law by being unwilling to deliver pre-trial indictments. Probable cause is a synonym for an immediate arrest. The governors in both states are oath takers and they have refused to abide by or adhere to their oaths of office. On the other hand, only “ambulance chasers” are willing to be retained to only seek “hush money” for the aggrieved families and “no justice” for the communities.

On this past Wednesday, I received an e-mail from a “certified human rights defender” in Ferguson, MO which reads, in part: “I am writing you this letter on behalf of the citizens of Ferguson, MO and the state of Missouri itself. It is my humble request that you come to Saint Louis, Missouri and personally address the concerns of the citizens and legally represent us & begin filing motions etc. that will have officer Darren Wilson arrested, indicted. ….”

I am ready to travel to Ferguson, MO but I am unable to travel anywhere without financial support and legal persuasion from Blacks in New York to Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman of the New York Court of Appeals. In part, I suffer the same problem that Powell faced in Congress. The culprits in Powell were the doorkeepers and the sergeant-at-arms. The culprits in Maddox are doorkeepers and court officers.

Otherwise, Cong. Powell met all the qualifications of the U.S. Constitution. I have met all of the qualifications to practice law in New York. In New York, court officers are stationed in front of courtrooms and the state police are present on all New York highways even though I also meet all of the qualifications of a lawyer to represent my people without fee and to travel in and outside of New York.

For the past twenty-four years, New York has deprived me of an opportunity to earn a living even though I had spent most of my legal career doing pro bono work for New York and for Blacks. I spent everything, including my retirement, on representing my people. Only investors can “free” a people.

It is not sufficient to simply make donations. Activism requires funding. Social parasites are a drag on activism. Whites respect investors in white supremacy. Blacks disrespect investors in their liberation. In the Black community, social parasites exceed investors. In accounting, this amounts to a deficit.

A blue-ribbon commission, in 1991, had found that New York’s judicial system was “infested with racism.” It did not make sense for me to charge clients a commensurate legal fee. This would constitute double jeopardy. A percentage of an award to an “ambulance chaser” was also out of the question. This is triple jeopardy.

Like Cong. Powell, I also filed a civil rights action but in Brooklyn Federal Court citing Hachamovitch v. DeBuono, 159 F.3d 687 (2nd Cir. 1998) (Jacobs, J.) of which the facts of Maddox v. Prudenti, et. al. fitted on all fours. Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals heard my appeal. It did not make sense for him to reject his own reasoning in Hachamovitch to accommodate my civil rights claims in Maddox. It would mean overthrowing a bill of attainder.

Instead, unlike what the U.S. Supreme Court had done in Powell v. McCormick, Chief Judge Jacobs refused to take Maddox to the next level by the identifying the “doorkeepers” and “court officers” as the culprits. This is why I have always identified my plight as amounting to “judicial bullying.” Otherwise, I am still qualified to practice law in New York, Pennsylvania and in Georgia and am eligible to practice law pro hac vice in Missouri.

The residents of Missouri are simply asking for justice. It will not come in Ferguson, MO until there is a level playing field. An elected prosecutor has an inherent conflict-of-interest in investigating any death at the hands of a police officer who is a natural ally of the prosecutor’s office.

Former NYS Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams feigned to be a special prosecutor. He was ticked off when I called his hand. An elected prosecutor can never be a special prosecutor. This accounts for the unconstitutional and unfair result in Trayvon Martin. Every state, including Missouri, has a remedy. It is called a “special prosecutor.”

Fifty years ago, all civil rights activists headed to Mississippi. The state is a better place today. History, for the better, should repeat itself. The Congressional Black Caucus should make an immediate change of venue in September 2014 from Washington, DC to St Louis, MO. Ferguson, MO is Exhibit “A” of a national problem. Blacks, nationwide, are suffering from a “shoot-to-kill” policy and a “choke-to-kill” policy. Streets and cities are unsafe for Blacks.

The Need for a Legal Defense Fund

without comments

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

Tonight, United African Movement, Freedom Party and Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls will start a two-part series on Eric Garner, including the three books Blacks must read, the chokehold applied by rogue cops of the NYPD to Eric Garner to murder him, probable causes for arrests, grand jury abuses and symbolic speech under the First Amendment that will be used at the 2014 African-American Day Parade in Harlem.

The venue for Part I of the series will be held tonight, Wednesday, September 17 at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Franklin and Classon) in Brooklyn at 7:00 p.m.  Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue.  It will focus on the psychological legacy of slavery.

The venue for Part II of the series will be held at Friendship Baptist Church, 141 West 131st Street in Harlem on Thursday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m.  Part I will specifically address the three books that Blacks must read to speak the language of and to communicate with whites and Part II will specifically address grand jury abuses that lead to immunizing rogue cops.

Part II – No Taping

On this Wednesday, September 17, 2014, at Brooklyn Christian Center, for the first hour, I will identify and discuss three books that Blacks must read.  The first book was written about the psychological legacy of slavery.  The other two books are based on competition.  This country unabashedly practices “Social Darwinism.”  The master-slave relationship prohibits Blacks from competing against whites.

Descendants of enslaved Africans are not allowed to practice competition.  Instead, Blacks are given social welfare programs.  This is our reward.  Business, law, politics, sports, arts and entertainment and the top echelons of militarism are staffed by white males.  They do not have to face a glass ceiling.  Blacks are not encouraged to participate in these disciplines.

HELP is non-existent in the Black community.  HELP is an acronym for History, Ethics, Logic and Philosophy.  The Founding Fathers of HELP are Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Charles Hamilton Houston, Melvin Tolson and Marcus Garvey.  None of these men are widely promoted in the Black community because whites will never promote our architects.

The Brooklyn Christian Center is located at 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn.  This forum will start at 7:00 p.m.  Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue.  No Black person should receive a high school diploma until he or she fully comprehends, in detail, their contents.  It explains why Blacks will never, among other things, maintain and operate a political party.

Last week, Yah Ammi, of the Human Rights and Justice Committee of Ferguson, MO asked me to come to Ferguson and help its residents secure a special prosecutor in the death of Michael Brown.  I was flattered.  The people of Ferguson know the difference between an “ambulance chaser” and a “social engineer.”  They know that I am the only attorney in the United States to have secured a special prosecutor on two, separate occasions.

In 1990, New York sought to resolve a political question; that is, how to “disbar” an attorney who had never been convicted of a crime; had never suffered a disciplinary complaint from a client; and had never been held in contempt of court.  Otherwise, no attorney, despite his or her unpopularity, can be disciplined or disbarred under Judiciary Law § 90.

Since a complaint from members of the New York Legislature is a political question, I prepared a calendar, “Say to No to Cuomo” to continue to November 4, 2014. The events on this calendar will not only address the issue of legal representation generally and “judicial bullying,”  in particular, but also the issues of Eric Garner, John White, Ramsey Orta, Chrissie Ortiz, Tawana Brawley and a class action involving all historically despised and down-trodden persons.

Gov. Mario Cuomo and his son, Andrew, started the practice of “judicial bullying” in 1990.  See Tawana Brawley and “Central Park 7.”  It has had a “chilling effect” on all Black attorneys and legal activism.  Since May 21, 1990, no Black attorney has initiated litigation challenging white supremacy in New York except for “hush money.”

As a political party, the Freedom Party also needs legal representation.  Similarly, United African Movement needs to retain an attorney to represent Tawana Brawley in New York and in Virginia.  The Black community and the Freedom Party need a fully-stocked law library to navigate through legal issues and to decipher and arrest “unjust laws” like the “Stand Your Ground” law.

In the past, I have represented an untold number of unpopular defendants and causes pro bono.   Otherwise, there would have never been a movement for justice in New York.  I was also the sole founder of the Freedom Party and a founder of Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls with a connection to the “Central Park 7.”

I had also successfully represented the late Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, pro bono and as an attorney, in his pro hac vice application to New York to represent suspected members of the Black Liberation Army in addition to the pro bono representation of Rev. Al Sharpton in a 67-count indictment in Manhattan.

I would find it difficult to believe that any freedom-loving person would reject my effort to resume the practice of law on a pro bono basis or to donate to any effort to continue a legal effort to represent the despised and the downtrodden in the finest tradition of American jurisprudence and consistent with the speech made by Chief Justice Jonathan Lippman to the graduating law class at Pace Law School.

For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs  to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly.  There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software.

Wall Street: “Central Park 7,” Garner & Brown

without comments

Rules of Engagement: Orta

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

On Monday, September 8, 2014, I will be a guest on the “Carl Nelson Show” at 5:00 p.m. Carl Nelson has a history of discussing controversial, current affairs and public affairs programming. This Monday afternoon on WOL-AM will be no different. I will also hopefully discuss “How to Bridge the Communications Gap between Blacks and Whites.”

“Carl Nelson” can be heard live at www.woldcnews.com. All cadets will need to bring a pen, paper and pad to the “Carl Nelson Show” which is valued on this Monday at the very least, $500 per person. This discussion will not be available at a top-rated law school. In 1787, no one ever envisioned Black attorneys in the United States.

Language is at the core of every culture. It not only supports communications but it also undergirds critical thinking. I refused, during a trial, to allow my clients to take the witness stand. Instead, I forced the legal system to be adversarial including demanding the appointment of a special prosecutor in all racially-motivated cases. It is hard for a slave to be adversarial to his or her master.

An elected prosecutor in the case of a state-sponsored murder violates the search for truth. An elected prosecutor is an ally of the police. Thus, no elected prosecutor can prosecute a police officer without giving the appearance of an impropriety. A code of ethics militates against any impropriety.

English is about antonyms and homonyms. The law is supposed to be an adversarial system. Instead, it is judicial conspiracy. The state pays the prosecutor and the client pays the defense attorney. It is larceny by trick. This is a confidence game and it is intended to enrich both the prosecutor and the defense attorney.

I wrote a manuscript entitled “How to Represent the Black Defendant.” No course exists in any law school on this subject. Thus, every criminal defendant is the victim of the Sixth Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court has only taken feeble steps to remedy this glaring, constitutional flaw since Powell v. Alabama (“Scottsboro Boys Case”) in 1931.

The prison-industrial complex is the exception to the Thirteenth Amendment. The United States never intended to end slavery. Thus, white supremacists are using this exception as a back-door approach to mass incarceration. Our children are moving from “Black incubators” to “white paternalism.”

On this Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., Michael Greys of “Community Cop” will be the keynote speaker at UAM’s weekly forum. I will interpret the September 6 court appearance of People v. Orta in Richmond County Supreme Court and the settlement in “Central Park 7″.

To understand the outcome in People v. Orta, you would need to know the story behind A. Phillip Randolph’s demand for a March on Washington on June 18, 1941. Seven days later, FDR who had opposed the March on Washington, signed Executive Order 8802 which placed a ban on discrimination in the war industries and apprenticeship programs. Blacks would be given the same opportunities as whites. The right of legal representation belongs to the people and not to an attorney.

This historic discussion on Wednesday night, which will include events throughout October 2014, will occur at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn. In 1913, public transportation was in its embryonic stage in New York City. Nonetheless, This fact was not an obstacle to Blacks traveling between the boroughs. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue.

Rules of Engagement: Orta

Sixth Amendment

Every criminal defendant is entitled to a public trial. This includes all phases of a criminal trial including all hearings. This right to a public trial belongs to the defendant and not to the public. The right to the effective representation of an attorney belongs to the public. This is a restraint, among other things, of abuses of judicial power.

The defendants should also enjoy the assistance of counsel and the right to choose one’s own counsel if counsel is privately-retained. Counsel must be free of any conflict-of-interest which may affect the lawyer’s performance including counsel who is an organ of the state. A criminal defendant also has a right to proceed pro se.

Transcript

Black’s Law Dictionary defines a transcript as follows: “A handwritten, printed or typed copy of testimony given orally; esp., the official record of proceedings in a trial or hearing as taken down by a court reporter.” A transcript provides the basis for any legal argument before a trial court or an appellate court.

It is a disservice to any criminal defendant for any person to create a noise or to excite a disturbance while a court is in session. The criminal defendant may end up paying for anyone’s indiscretions. Any defect or omission in a verbatim transcript may cause irreversible harm to a criminal defendant.

The ideal atmosphere is to emulate a public or college library except that any violation of a quiet atmosphere may cause irreversible harm to a criminal defendant. This happened to Brian Nichols and he ended up killing a white trial judge, the white court stenographer, and a white law enforcement agent.

Nichols had been accused or raping his white “sugar mama” in Georgia after she found out that he was a “player.” Instead of providing Nichols with the trial transcript of a hung jury, the judge ordered an immediate, second trial. This was a denial of due process of law. Among other things, Nichols was unable to use the trial transcript to impeach witnesses.

Symbolic Speech

The First Amendment not only requires freedom of expression but also symbolic speech which may include the wearing of a black armband or the burning of an American flag. Absent any disruptive conduct, a state may not suppress a message according to the U.S. Supreme Court in Tinker v. Des Moines School District.

P.S. People v. Chrissie Ortiz will appear on the criminal calendar in Staten Island Criminal Court, 67 Targee Street in Staten Island on Monday, September 8, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. Chrissie Ortiz is the wife of Ramsey Orta, the videographer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.  The NYPD is employing a full-court press. Call the Freedom Party at 917-947-8994.

Bail Fund for Ramsey Orta at Carver Federal Savings Bank

without comments

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

A bail fund for Ramsey Orta was established to secure his immediate release as a “hostage” from the New York Department of Correction. The “ransom” is Seventy-five Thousand Dollars ($75,000.00). While Rev. Al Sharpton was in Ferguson, MO, with no one attending the store, I chose to become the interim guardian ad litem for Mr. Orta.

Mr. Orta is not only a key witness but also a material witness. A video-tape is not admissible in a court of law unless you lay a foundation. There is a fine print to a videotape. No grand jury investigation can start unless Orta is not a “hostage.” I have to work frantically, especially in light of censorship, in order to secure his release.

I am the only attorney in the United States to have not only secured a special prosecutor but I also successfully secured two special prosecutors. No appointment of a special prosecutor can be made without a “turf war.” This is the problem in Ferguson, MO. I may be going to Ferguson after I secure the release of Ramsey Orta.

It makes no sense to be taking a bus ride over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge while Ramsey Orta, the material witness, is behind bars. The right to march is protected by the First Amendment. The right to travel is protected by Article IV, sec.2 of the U.S. Constitution. Someone should explain the difference between these constitutional provisions to Rev. Al Sharpton. Dr. Martin L., King, Jr invoked the First Amendment. Paul Robeson invoked Art. IV, sec. 2.

Any deposit to the bail fund is refundable subject to the orders of court. If New York City were Ferguson, MO, I can assure you that Seventy-five Thousand Dollars could be collected by Thursday. If this would happen in New York, it would shock the PBA. It would also allow Blacks to put pressure on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to appoint a special prosecutor and impanel a grand jury. Otherwise, P.O. Daniel Pantaleo is going home to await his pension.

A Black Political Convention in New York?

without comments

AttorneyMaddox3xsm

 

by Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

The Freedom Party and United African Movement will sponsor an interim political convention on Saturday, August 16, 2014 in honor of Hon. Marcus Garvey at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue. Specific information will be released on this Wednesday evening at the UAM weekly forum at 7:00 p.m. at the same address.

The Black community is beset with myriad problems. All “freedom fighters” are invited to attend this historic convention. The death of Eric Garner is at the top of the list because the actions of the New York Police Department were directed at a class; namely, descendants of enslaved Africans and persons of African ancestry. Thus, this is a class action.

Curiously, the New York Police Department has arrested the videographer, Ramsey Orta, before the NYPD has arrested its officer, Daniel Pantaleo, who illegally choked Eric Garner to death. Probable cause for the arrest of the rogue cop preceded the arrest of the videographer. New York City’s medical examiner had earlier found the manner of death as “homicide.”

Supporters of the videographer should have placed him in “protective custody.” This is the same approach that I employed for Moses Stewart, the father of the late Yusuf Hawkins who was lynched by a white mob in Bensonhurst in 1989. United African Movement was in the vanguard of this struggle. Joseph Fama is still serving a 33 years to life sentence.

The ransom for the videographer is Seventy-five Thousand Dollars. This money should be raised at or before the Black political convention on August 16. Details will be discussed tonight at UAM’s weekly forum. This same approach was used for the “Central Park 7” in 1989. This allowed these young men to be “free” before the kangaroo trials.

Bro. Leroy Baylor of WHCR-FM in Harlem will also update the audience tonight on the status of his role as host of the “Communicators” and any future plans for struggle. Runoko Rashidi will be tonight’s guest speaker. He will link Mexico to Africa. Rashidi is a well-recognized lecturer and researcher internationally.

Free Ramsey Orta Now! Hey New York Have You Heard? This is not Johannesburg!

All Roads Lead to Philadelphia

In 1995, all roads led to Philadelphia for Mumia Abu-Jamal. This was the rallying cry of the United African Movement as it became active in the vanguard of the struggle to “Free Mumia.” The Fraternal Order of Police had declared war on all freedom-loving Blacks. Mumia was its poster child.

Today, the murder of Eric Garner has reversed the rallying cry. All roads will lead to Philadelphia for the United African Movement to stage a mini-political convention on this Friday and to reload for the release of Ramsey Orta from an “indoctrination center.” The Patrolman’s Benevolent Association is holding him hostage to undermine the investigation and prosecution of Daniel Pantaleo et. al. for fatally choking Eric Garner on Staten Island.

Blacks in New York and elsewhere will assemble in Philadelphia on Friday, August 8, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the African American Museum, 701 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19106 to strategize for the immediate release of Mumia Abu-Jamal from a prison in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and for the immediate release of Ramsey Orta from an “indoctrination center” in New York. Purchase cheap bus ticket to Philadelphia.

Members of the New York Police Department wrongfully arrested Orta to compromise the investigation into the death of Eric Garner and the prosecution of the rogue members of the New York Police Department. Orta was the videographer who filmed this fatal attack on Eric Garner. At best, the NYPD will impeach his testimony and, at worst, the NYPD will seize his mind.

Plans will be made in Philadelphia for the Black community in the tri-state area and elsewhere to secure the funds to defray his “ransom.” This will be a variation of the model used by the United African Movement in 1989 to secure the release of the “Central Park 7″ from pre-trial detention.

The Freedom Party (917-947-8994) will open its doors at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Franklin and Classon) in Brooklyn at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 9, 2014 to start collecting funds. If George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin in cold-blood, were being held in a prison, I can assure you that whites would start forming a line immediately upon the reading of this announcement.

I will be appearing on the “Carl Nelson Show” today to discuss Eric Garner and the false arrest of Ramsey Orta, the person who took the video of the fatal attack on Eric Garner. The video went global.

Orta is being held at an “undisclosed” location for a ransom of Seventy-five Thousand Dollars while the Fourth Estate is preparing to send Blacks on another “wild goose chase.” Orta’s video recording far exceeds any “silver rights” march. Blacks must not be fooled again.

The “Carl Nelson Show” is aired from Washington, DC on WOL-AM (1450) radio at 5:00 p.m. and over the internet at www.woldcnews.com. I will be appearing on his show today, August 7, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. and I will be returning to the “Carl Nelson Show” next Monday, August 11, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.

Too honest for the White Press and too black for much of today’s Black Press; bullet columnist Alton Maddox upsets the same people and status quo as he did as an uncompromising Defense Attorney. He is also a founding member of the Freedom Party. Please support the movement to Reinstate him. Contact him at c/o UAM P.O. BOX 35 BRONX, NY 10471.
