Chicago Gangs and the “King Alfred Plan”
From Covert Book Report, 2013
Every now-and-then a dark secret is leaked in a novel or movie that exposes a subject so controversial that people think that it surely must be fiction. […] Here is where we travel down one such road; Senator Mark Kirk (R. Il.) has proposed an unthinkable and seemingly impossible plan to round up as many as 18,000 black men off the streets of Chicago and imprison them.
Raw Story reports: “Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) on Wednesday accused Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk (R) of proposing an “elitist white boy solution” to gang violence with his plan for the mass arrests of 18,000 gang members in Chicago.
Earlier on Wednesday, Kirk had joined with fellow Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) in calling on Illinois attorney general nominee Zachary Fardon to focus on street gangs and gun violence. But in an interview earlier this month, Kirk had gone even further with a plan to target members of the Continue reading →
Okla. execution: ‘Chaos’ after injection is stopped, inmate dies anyway
by Ed Payne, Greg Botelho and Dana Ford, CNN
— One execution [botched], another postponed.
Oklahoma corrections officials looked for answers Tuesday following the death of inmate Clayton Lockett, who convulsed and writhed on the gurney after drugs to carry out his death sentence were administered.
“His body started to twitch, he mumbled something I couldn’t understand,” said Dean Sanderford, his attorney. “The convulsing got worse, it looked like his whole upper body was trying to lift off the gurney. For a minute, there was chaos.” Continue reading →
Lethal Injection Leads to the Most Botched Execution By The Daily Beast
Last night the state of Oklahoma added to America’s long history of botched executions when it attempted to execute Clayton Derrell Lockett by lethal injection.

Katrina remains on my mind until I have no more questions to get answered. So far, with every step that I take, more questions bubble up from the swamp called NWO. It seems that everything we need to know about the System can be linked to this catastrophe. It is all there. Before, during, and after. By working through the emotions tied to this terrorist act, the facts can come to surface. Some faked facts, some real facts. There is no need to decide right now. Right now, all that is needed is to find the pieces of the puzzle, and see what picture will form. Continue reading →
Note from BW of Brazil:Every now and then one comes across a piece of news or history that words simply cannot adequately express. Today’s post is exactly one of them. A recent book release has documented the atrocities that happened in a 19-year period that is being called the “Brazilian Holocaust”. While some only associate the term holocaust with the Jewish genocide committed by Nazis in World War II Germany, as you will see, the term is perhaps the best available to describe a terrible stain in Brazilian History.

The difference, according to the author of the book herself, is that the color of the victims of Brazil’s Holocaust were “overwhelmingly” black. Continue reading →
