ATTACKS MAY PROMPT TOUGHER STANCE BY USA!

The recent attacks in FRANCE, that produced at this time, 129 dead and 352 injured!

Make no mistake about it, this is a WAR!  The attackers were armed with heavy weaponry and  suicide vests!

Just prior to the hit on FRANCE, ISIS had attacked RUSSIA, in LEBANON and now PARIS, FRANCE!  In my mind that proves they AIN’T “NO JUNIOR VARSITY,” which Barack Hussain Obama called them.  They are well financed, fanatical, terrorists which this world has not seen in a LONG, LONG, time! .

The day before the France attacks, Obama told ABC News…”…WE HAVE CONTAINED THEM…”  Which obviously isn’t true and a ridiculous statement!

SO, PERHAPS THESE UNPROVOKED ATTACKS ON INNOCENTS AT A CONCERT WILL PROMPT A TOUGHER STANCE BY USA!!!

QUESTION?   ARE YOU AWARE THAT 20,000 SYRIAN “Refugees,” arrived IN NEW ORLEANS, La., USA????  Photos are being circulated on Face Book, etc., that depicts YOUNG MEN!!! Not Mothers with children, but YOUNG MEN!!!   Did you know that one of the attackers in FRANCE carried a SYRIAN PASSPORT/DOCUMENTS???  ALARMING TO SAY THE VERY LEAST!!   WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Ted Cruz, Republican, Texas, U.S. Senator.

Rafael Edward Cruz, 44,  seeks to position himself as the most conservative member of a very conservative field of Republican candidates for President of the United States of America. (POTUS.)  Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  His parents worked in the oil industry, and moved to Houston, Texas as a child. A very bright young  economics.man, at age 13 he enrolled in an after school program, the merits of free market economics.  However, his true love was the U.S. Constitution.  At Princeton he was a national debate champion, and attended Harvard Law.  He was recommended for a Supreme Court Clerk. He served under Chief Justice William Rehnquist.  His father was a Cuban revolutionary who fought against Batista, fled to U.S.  with $100.00 sewn in his underware launched an oil business.  Now is an itinerant minister with a fervent Tea Party following.

Cruz is an ardent campaigner, crisscrossing the Bible Belt Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma.  He has raised in excess of $50 Million Dollars a total ranking second only to Jeb Bush.  Cruz states, “I grew up a movement conservative.  That’s who I am. I don’t have to fake it!”  He is as disciplined performer as anyone in politics.  His stump speech, delivered without notes or teleprompter, is precisely honed, down to the jokes and pauses for emphasis. He is relentlessly on message.

His campaign is to change the Republican Party  to Conservativism.  “That’s what is at stake!”

We will watch and see.

“Daddy Kng and Me.”

Over the past few months, I have been requested to speak at various and sundry type functions, Civil Rights, Politics, Elections, Awards, Colleges, the subject seems to arrive at the “Daddy” King doorstep. Why did you, a white man decide to write this book? Why? Why? Why?
To me, the response is always the same, “I had the unique experience of being a close friend and confidant to one of the great men of the Twentieth Century!” Perhaps one of the most unique relations in modern history. He was the exact same age as my Father, I am the exact same age as his oldest son, Martin Luther King, Jr. We were introduced by Rev. Fred C. Bennette, Jr., in Atlanta, after I received publicity as the General Counsel of the Georgia Department of Labor, having led the change in compensation laws for the United Automobile Workers in Georgia. After the introduction, several weeks passed and Rev. Bennette asked me “…if I would be comfortable calling him Dad?” I assured him that it would be “…high honor and a personal privilege.”
From that day forward, until his death on November 11, 1984. we chatted at least several times a week, and met at least once a week, the highlight being our weekly luncheons at the Marriott Hotel in the heart of downtown Atlanta, which we experienced for three and one half years.
The single most important impression I want to leave the reader is that history has not paid Martin Luther King, Sr., his due. If the civil rights movement had a father, it was Daddy King, in the same way he was father to his son.

We faced his three tragedies together, Martin Luther King, Jr. murder; A.D. King drowning; and the murder of “Mama” King while she was seated at the organ in Ebenezer Church on Sunday morning.  In baseball, three strikes and you are out!  For Daddy King they were super-human challenges, which he met with dignity and grace.
To look back at the “Black Church,” over the past one hundred years is to recall some of the most important moments in history, fight for education, battle for civil rights, quest for women’s rights-the church was more than a place of worship, it was a school, theatre, community center, meeting place, political engine, and in each category Daddy King was the vanguard, at the forefront, leading the charge.
Without him, it would have been a very different century in America.
