DC Delegate Elanore Homes Norton - First Government Needles - Now The "Immates Close To Home" Program

D.C. Youths Are Jailed Across the U.S., Making Family Connections Difficult

"Why are they in North Dakota?" said Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), who plans to push for city teens to be brought closer to home. "It's a trip to the end of the earth."

What a great day when we can have Delegate Elanore Holmes Norton as the first Senator from the new state of Washington DC?  :-/

After fighting the "conservatives" to obtain clean needles from the Federal government she will go after "Distant Prisoners".

No she will not suggest to them that if they were to stop breaking the law - they would actually be close to their families.  Nope - she will work vigeriously to insure that the Penal System never is allowed to send DC prisoners such great distances.

You know how distance can destroy families and all.

Prisoners everywhere look forward to receiving letters and visitors from home. But for more than 6,500 District inmates, these visits are few and far between, because most of them are scattered in more than 70 federal prisons across the country, wherever the Bureau of Prisons can find space.

It has been that way since 1997, when Congress transferred authority over District felons to the bureau and shut down Lorton Correctional Complex in Fairfax County, which was close to home but considered crowded and violent.

The 15 people who traveled here last weekend might never have come if it were not for the Campaign for Youth Justice, which paid $15,000 for their airfare, shuttles and hotels. The trip highlights what the group sees as the folly of sending youths with relatively short sentences far from home to places that do not understand them.

"The farther away someone is, the less likely their family will ever be able to see them and be involved in their lives," said Liz Ryan, executive director of the group, which has lobbied for 18 years to stop minors from being treated as adults in the justice system. "That family tie is something that should not be broken. We're straining it by sending juveniles 1,500 miles away. These are nameless, faceless children to decision makers in Washington."

Indian Giver Bush Revokes The Pardon Of An "Ethnic Man"

Bush didn't want the "pay for play" via the donations to the GOP to be the next "Marc Ritch" scandal.

WASHINGTON — The pardons President George W. Bush granted this week couldn't have been better Christmas gifts if Santa himself had delivered them.

But a Brooklyn, N.Y., man, Isaac Robert Toussie, received the legal equivalent of a lump of coal.

Toussie, convicted of making false statements to the Housing and Urban Development Department and of mail fraud, was among 19 people pardoned Tuesday.

But after learning in news reports that Toussie's father had donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party a few months ago, as well as other information, the White House issued an extraordinary statement Wednesday saying the president was reversing his decision on Toussie's case.

White House press secretary Dana Perino said the decision to revoke the pardon — a step unheard of in recent memory — was "based on information that has subsequently come to light," including the extent and nature of Toussie's prior criminal offenses. She also said neither the White House counsel's office nor the president had been aware of a political contribution by Toussie's father that "might create an appearance of impropriety."

"Given that, this was the prudent thing to do," she said.

The new information came to the White House's attention from news reports, Perino said.

A story in the New York Daily News said Toussie's father, Robert, donated $28,500 to the national Republican Party in April — just months before Toussie's pardon petition.

The counsel's office generally doesn't include vetting of political contributions in its reviews on such matters, as that would be "highly inappropriate on many levels," she said. The White House decision on Toussie had come without a recommendation from the pardon attorney, Ronald L. Rodgers, as Toussie's request for a pardon came less than five years after completion of his sentence, so that eliminated another step in the review process.

The Daily News story on Wednesday, and others in Newsday and on blogs, shed light on Toussie's record. He pleaded guilty for lying to HUD and mail fraud, admitting that he falsified finances of prospective homebuyers seeking HUD mortgages. He was sentenced to five months in prison and five months' house arrest, a $10,000 fine and no restitution, the Daily News reported.

In another case, Toussie pleaded guilty to having a friend send his local county a letter that falsely inflated property values.

Black Anchor Reportedly Axed After Saying The N-word

Veteran anchor Michael Scott got the boot from WAAY-TV in Huntsville, Ala. Scott reportedly got into an argument with one of his co-workers and called him a n**ger. Details of the exchange can be found on NewsBlues.com, a Web site for TV news professionals. Tipsters at Calkins-owned Huntsville station say primary news anchor Michael Scott was suspended after openly berating news producer Jabaree Pruitt. According to those who witnessed the incident, Scott, during a commercial break in the 10 p.m. newscast, referred to Pruitt as a Negro. When Pruitt ask him not to use that word, Scott called him a ‘nigger.’ Both men are Black. While a station official confirmed to The Huntsville Times that Scott was no longer with the station, he did not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding his departure. Instead, he would only say that a nationwide search would be conducted to find his replacement.

"The Black Conservative Meanwhile is CLUELESS!!"

"The Black Conservative meanwhile is CLUELESS!!"

So said the Black Progressive Fundamentalist in regards to the Black Conservative's ability to understand what makes the Black community tick and what Black people ultimately wants in its leadership.

With this in mind - I have a new campaign to market to the Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chasers!!

Train A Black Conservative Political Operative On How To Work With The Black Community

That is right folks! After years of being marginalized by the Black Progressives that dominate our community. Spat upon at each turn. After seeing the BQPFRCs reach a state of organism any time one of their operatives mentions the words "Clarence Thomas", "Ward Connerly" or "Condi Rice" I, a self described "Black Conservative" am forced to yield to the prevailing masses.

I humbly ask that the Black Progressive-Fundamentalist community designate "trainers" from their band to help educate Black Conservatives on how to be more sensitive to the Black community and our delicate egos. Since both of us say that we are interested in developing our community then such an initiative should be no problem. In "Training a Black Conservative" to be more effective......you are TRAINING A BLACK MAN none the less.

One important ground rule - You are not permitted to attempt to CONVERT the Black Conservative to your Progressive ways. We are working at the level that is a bit higher than ideology. We are working at the "racial commonality" layer. That is assuming that RACE is a higher order matter than is ideology for you. Right?

Here is the general objectives for the program

  1. DIVERSITY - since "diversity" is critically important to most Black folks the initiation of ideological diversity within the Black community is a logical offshoot of the diversity attempts that are driven upon White folks
  2. COMPETITION FOR THE BLACK CONSCIOUSNESS - So frequently the Black Conservative is told by the "defenders of Blackness" that the Black community is theirs for the taking. They just need to stop talking with words echoed from "our enemies" when we talk to Black people. (Side note - the fact that Black Progressive Fundamentalist often obtain clippings directly from MoveOn.org, CommonDreams.org, The Huffington Post and DailyKOS should not be considered "sounding like White folks" because the White Liberal LUVs Black people. )
  3. SENSITIVITY TO BLACK PEOPLE - The Black Conservative needs to be converted. Where as currently the Black Progressive-Fundamentalist attacks the Black Conservative as a Sambo, Coon, Uncle Tom and Minstrel - at present only the Black Progressive Fundamentalist is allowed to actually ACT THE PART - with movies such as Soul Plane, the "DH Hugley Reads The News" on CNN and nearly everything that Mo'Nique does.

  4. TAPPING INTO THAT WHICH ATTRACTS BLACK FOLKS - Once again this is a sensitive subject. During the program the Black Conservative must come to accept that despite the fact that he is Black - he is not permitted to do some of the things that Black Progressive-Fundamentalists do to appeal to Black people. Where as they make heavy use of such tactics to appeal to Black folks - when a Conservative comments upon their use - they are said to be "playing on stereotypes". So for example - while I read a newspaper article about the low turn out rates to PTA meetings in Kansas City MO last week DESPITE the fact that they serve food so that Black parents might come.....the Black Conservative must know that having fried chicken, potato salad and greens with ham hocks is not permissible at the political rallies that he has for Black folks.
Since the Black Progressive-Fundamentalist is interested in showing that his ideology is superior to all others in regards to helping Black folks - he should not have any problems in teaching another Black person his tricks of the trade.
