Politics: A Business or a Hobby?

(“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.”
