During the whole of the Occupy movement, did the police kill anyone? How about during the Ferguson riots and Baltimore?
Is there a body cam video of The "Hands up! Don't shoot!" shooting of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum?
None of the facts out yet (but that never stopped President Obama before...) When can we expect the President to comment on this Occupy Oregon killing? When will we hear from Loretta Lynch? Who will be investigating this case?
Hit the link below to listen to the eye witness account of the killing of LaVoy Finicum...
Now imagine media reaction if LaVoy was black!
Constant fear... The fear of death, murder and abductions are constantly on the minds of those who live on the southern border of the United States or what is now called "no man's land." Rancher Ed Ashurst wrote a book to educate people who live north of the border on what it is like to have the federal government avert their eyes as cartels (with their scouts, drugs and sex slaves) stomp right through your backyard.
In an interview heard only on The James T. Harris Show, Amhurst divulged a most stunning revelation in his book, Alligators in the Moat: Politics and the Mexican Border. This is the real story behind the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Nick Ivie.
The official story, crafted by the federal government, was that Agent Ivie was killed due to friendly fire. The media portrayed Ivie's death as a sad result of a "gross rookie mistake." In Alligators in the Moat, Ashurst reveals another version; the version based on reports from the Cochise County Sherriff's Office.
Friendly fire WAS NOT in the Cochise County Sherriff's findings.
You can listen to the interview here or listen to the link below. Since my interview with Ed, a real buzz has stirred in the Border Patrol community. Many believe that Ivie's death is very similar to that of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed by the Mexican cartel using U.S. weapons obtained in the botched Obama "Fast and Furious" gun-running operation.
It is time that the killing of Border Patrol Agent Nick Ivie gets revisited. In the meantime, if you want to get a glimpse of what life is like in "no man's land," otherwise known as the U.S. southern border, start with this interview and this first hand account.
This you've got to hear!
Captain Arizona, otherwise known as former state representative Adam Kwasman, called in to the James T. Harris show today to give us color commentary on an incident that happened in an Arizona State University (ASU) law class earlier this morning.
Now we have all heard of professors brainwashing the minds of their students - it happens on American campuses every day. BUT, it isn't very often that we actually get to hear a professor doing it! And it's not every day that there is a ringer sitting in the class who is willing to take on the liberal/socialist agenda.
Listen closely.... The first person speaking is the law student referencing Senator Ted Cruz. Professor Josh Dressler, during his Criminal Law class, then makes his statement about Cruz and the Jews. That's when former state representative and Jewish member of Cruz's state leadership speaks up, tears off his suit and tie, and becomes Captain Arizona! Kwasman, in his role as Captain, interrupts Professor Dressler in an epic smack down and puts him in his place. I don't think Dressler knew who he had sitting in his class, or I doubt he would have politicked his Criminal Law lecture.
"I wasn't going to let him get away with poisoning people's minds," said Captain Arizona, otherwise known as Adam Kwasman.
On The James T. Harris Show, Kwasman told us about the reaction of his younger Millenial classmates and his after-class conversation with Professor Dressler.
Should black actors boycott the Academy Awards? The Hollywood left prides itself on celebrating diversity. However, when it comes to their most prestigious awards ceremony, black actors and black movie producers seem to be omitted from consideration. The latest snub, "Straight out of Compton" is considered by many to be Oscar worthy. So much so that a few black Hollywood elites are crying foul and calling for a boycott!
I remember the first time I listened to the iconic album, Strait Outta Compton. It was also the last time. It's not that the recording wasn't brilliant, it's just that I couldn't identify with the lyrics. Nor did I want to. As a matter of fact, I found the subject matter offensive. "F*#k the police?"
Now I lost my black card years ago, but I wonder if the members of the Academy (older white folk) felt the same way? If so, wouldn't that make the N.W.A. (Niggas With Attitude) bio-flick more of a culture clash rather than institutional racism? Movies like Django or the Hateful 8 (Quentin Tarantino) take liberties with the N-word. Words that whites have been prohibited from using but blacks have grown quite comfortable with. Spike Lee is disgusted with Tarantino for his blatant violation of "the code," yet he remains powerless to do anything about it. However, Spike is also miffed because, even though he doesn't like the word (or at least white directors using the word), N.W.A., in his mind, deserves Oscar recognition from the "white Academy?" Seriously, if it were not for double standards, the left would have no standards at all.
I have no dog in the present cycle of Academy Awards racial fight because I gave up on the Oscars after The Color Purple got snubbed. Fool me once, shame on you. However, black folk who are seriously trying to play the game of Oscar politics with their own set of cultural rules are the bigger fools. (cough...Jada Pinkett Smith...cough!)
It's the culture, stupid!
In the same way the new Civil Rights movement of #blacklivesmatter celebrates thugs and criminals, this year, black Hollywood elites want accolades for a movie that depicts a culture Academy members simply refuse to deal with. Plus, Will Smith sucked in Concussion! Again, is that racist?
Until the Academy can be stacked with black folk in the same way Obama stacked the courts with liberals, or until Hollywood blacks create a Blackywood like India's Bollywood... I guess the BET Awards will have to do!
Then there is the inside view provided by Aunt Vivian from The Prince of Bel-Air! Hey, Jada! What did the five fingers say to the face? SLAP!

Bill Clinton was a hoe, is a hoe and will always be a hoe. Now that his hoe-dom has caught up with him, Americans are faced with an uncomfortable question: Will Hillary Clinton become the 1st Pimp commander-in-chief? Hillary was ruthless when it came to protecting her hoe. Just ask Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers or Eileen Wellstone for starters.
The season has changed.
Will young millennial women embrace the same sleaze their feminist mothers and grandmothers worshiped?
We will see...
My mother used to complain that every time she watched the news she would see black people "acting the fool."
That was forty years ago. Have we progressed much since then?
I fear not. After a decade or two of watching her people embarrass themselves, she finally decided that she'd had enough and began limiting her TV watching to The View. Before you laugh – answer this simple question: When is the last time you saw black folks depicted poorly on The View? Even if you don't like Whoopi, she is clean and articulate and does not speak in the "Negro dialect." In other words, Whoopi does not act as a racial gatekeeper. However, she makes sure that no ignorance finds its way into your view of The View.
Now of course, at the age of 80-plus, my mother has not spent even one minute of her life on the internet, so after many years of struggle, she has finally overcome by effectively limiting her exposure to "black people acting the fool" to whatever The View provides.
I've gone a step further. I watch very little TV (The NFL and The Walking Dead), So my exposure to black people "acting the fool" is also limited. Plus, the fact that I live in a city with a black population iof approximately 3 percent has done wonders for my blood pressure. You would be surprised how tranquil my life has become since leaving the inner city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Does that offend you?
The secret to my peace is that I have learned to stop owning what I did not purchase. I was not raised to disrespect authority, so I don't listen to music that celebrates lawlessness. I was not raised to lie, steal or cheat, so I refuse to support those who do even if they get shot 16 times after doing so. I was not raised to march and complain and agitate while refusing to contribute to my own betterment, so why should I embrace a culture of people that does just because we have the same pigmentation? Why should I own what I did not buy into? Skin color is nothing to me. In fact, when people emphasize skin color over all else – even when it "benefits" black people – I find that...
Racist. And repugnant.
Simply put, the ugliness that is spewing out of the black culture doesn't define me. I am proud to be black, and I'm also proud to be an individual who isn't afraid to follow my conscience. The anger and rage you see both in the inner city and on American Ivy League campuses may look like me – may even sound like me – but if you or they believe that I am one of the collective, you're mistaken.
Here is my secret: I was liberated from the progressive plantation years ago. It was a difficult and emotional decision, and it still comes with a myriad of consequences – the most significant being the excommunication and shunning from the community of color in this country. My only regret – if I had to do it all over again – is that I didn't free myself sooner. If I knew then what I know now, I would have followed three simple (but difficult) steps to break free of plantation enslavement and live the American dream as God intended.
1. Crucify all micro aggressions
Micro aggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs, or insults – whether intentional or unintentional – that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their race or identity.
Micro aggressions are just a fancy word for paranoia. Everyone has met that sad individual who has a chip on his or her shoulder. Angry at the drop of a hat. Seeing racism everywhere. Well – thanks in part to the collective self-soothing of social media – we have an entire generation with a chip on its shoulder, and that chip is larger than ever.
Here is what you need to do:
Suspend all social media use for a month. If you start in February include the first week of March. (February is already the shortest month of the year, don't use Black History month to cheat yourself and use it as an excuse to follow the herd.) Be your own person with your own mind. When everyone in a room (or on a website) is agreeing with one another, take a step back and evaluate the issue from all sides. It's OK to go against the grain, even if it makes you the black sheep.
Kill cable news and all ethnic-based TV shows for a season. This one simple discipline will change your entire worldview. You might even read a book, like the Bible, or think without all the noise. You'll find that you can direct your own thoughts, rather than having them directed by others.
2. Behead Dependence
Everything from helicopter parents to the welfare state has warped our younger generation. To break free, you must no longer allow us to "help you." You must help yourself. This is the essence of maturity.
Here's what you need to do:
For the next 30 days, look into your mirror. Look yourself in the eye and say, "No one owes me anything. I will depend on God and the gifts and talents He gave me for everything."
Learn to live up to the way He sees you. Not how you see yourself, and definitely not how others see you.
Do whatever you can to avoid taking government assistance. If you find yourself in a situation where you might have to depend on the government, it should be a painful, gut-wrenching and shameful experience until the day you are back on your own feet. NEVER get used to it. NEVER callous your heart by giving up on self-sufficiency. You owe it to yourself to believe in your own talents, potential and capabilities. You must beware of all "free" money, because it's never free. And the price you'll pay in your self-worth and self-respect is far more than paper money.
Your new motto should be: I can do it. Because you can.
3. Self-identify as a successful American
Recently I had a conversation with a family of immigrants. They literally walked out of the Sudan. One woman with four boys; two were hers, the others lost. When asked, she claimed them all as her own. Four years later they all speak English. One is in college, while the eldest and the mother work to support him. They all live in the same, small apartment. Two are in high school with scholarships on the horizon. When all are finished, resources will go to care for Mom, whether she is the biological mother or not.
Here's what you need to do:
Befriend a recent immigrant from Africa or Asia. They make the best Americans. They will teach you how to work hard and to sacrifice.
If you are on a college campus, go to the stacks (that's a library, for you Millenials) and look for these brothers and sisters. You will usually find them there on Friday and Saturday nights studying. Offer to buy them dinner and pick their brain. Prepare to be motivated, inspired and – most of all – compelled to action.
Avoid all other recent immigrants. Too many of them are being used as pawns in the nation-killing game of dependence.
There it is. You are what you eat. And you are what you think. If you eat too many pork 'n beans (processed, manufactured, nonscense), your stomach will surely let you know. And flatulence leads to isolation. This isn't just true for food; it's true for how we think. When entire groups of people isolate themselves from and work against society, they get something worse than a chip on their shoulder.
They harden their hearts. They become addicted to hate.
They act the fool.
