Horrible,14 year old child sent to electric chair.

I came across this on Google+1 yesterday and I couldn’t believe it and doubt many of you knew about it either, it really shocked me so I had to look into it.

Originally shared by Riggio Family – age 14, George Stinney Jr. is the youngest person that has ever been sentenced to death in the United States. He was accused of killing two white girls back in 1944. The bodies were found near the house where the teenager resided with his parents. 70 years later, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in South Carolina.

Note, The photos are stills from the movie about him, The Story of George Stinney, Jr.

Editor Note: He was never actually found innocent.

It also got me thinking about all the talk about reparations. If anyone deserves some sort of “Reparation” or compensation it’s this young mans family for the miscarriage of justice. More on that in a minute. First, a few things I found about George Stinney Jr.


It took 10 minutes to convict 14-year-old George Stinney Jr. It took 70 years after his execution to exonerate him.

In March 1944, deep in the Jim Crow South, police came for 14-year-old George Stinney Jr. His parents weren’t at home. His little sister was hiding in the family’s chicken coop behind the house in Alcolu, a segregated mill town in South Carolina, while officers handcuffed George and his older brother, Johnnie, and took them away.

Two young white girls had been found brutally murdered, beaten over the head with a railroad spike and dumped in a water-logged ditch. He and his little sister, who were black, were said to be last ones to see them alive. Authorities later released the older Stinney – and directed their attention toward George.

August 31, 2016:
Leaders at the Charleston School of Law, along with 17 students, are beginning an effort to mount a civil rights case stemming from the 1944 execution of George Stinney Jr. Only 14 years old at the time, Stinney was arrested after two young girls were discovered murdered in Clarendon County, S.C.

He remains the youngest person put to death in the United States in the past century.

Strapped in the electric chair just two months following his conviction, his lawyer never attempted to appeal the jury’s verdict, which came after 10 minutes of deliberation.

It would be 70 years before a South Carolina judge vacated the conviction after finding constitutional violations during the original trial.


George Stinney Jr: Black 14-year-old boy exonerated 70 years after he was executed

George Stinney Jr became the youngest person to be executed in the US in the 20th century when he was sent to the electric chair in 1944, but more than 70 years after his death his conviction has been overturned.

Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen said the speed with which the state meted out justice against the boy was shocking and extremely unfair, and that his case was one of “great injustice” in her ruling exonerating Stinney Jr.

He was kept from his parents and any legal counsel when he was interrogated by authorities, and his supporters claim that the small, frail boy was so scared that he would have said whatever he thought would make the police happy, despite there having been no physical evidence linking him to the death of the girls.

Heres the trailer from a move made about George Junius Stinney Jr.

The Execution of George Stinney

Stinney was convicted in 1944 in a one-day trial[2] of the first-degree murder of two white girls: 11-year-old Betty June Binnicker and 8-year-old Mary Emma Thames.

After being arrested, Stinney was said to have confessed to the crime.[3][4] There was no written record of his confession apart from notes provided by an investigating deputy,[5] and no transcript of the brief trial. He was executed by electric chair.

Now, as for Reparations and the 2020 presidential candidates and all there talk about it. First let me share with you an excellent conversation Laura Ingraham had with Conservative author and filmmaker Shelby Steele.

Conservative author and filmmaker Shelby Steele reacts to Democrats’ agenda to ‘resolve’ slavery on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’

In case the YouTube video disappears heres the link for the original on Fox. 2020 presidential Democrats push for slavery reparations

Personally, I think it’s all BS. All society’s have been slaves at some point in history. BTW there were white slaves in America long before there where black slaves and they where treated a lot more brutally the the blacks. I ll bet a lot of the young people nowadays have no idea about the real history. I don’t have the time right now to give you all the links and info on it but look it up.

Blacks owned white slaves too BTW. If Kamala Harris and all the rest of the 2020 presidential candidates where really interested in “Reparations”, a good place to start would be with the muslims who still practice it today. Or, look in to her own heritage and country of Jamaica and the Spanish. They all seem to to think or make it out to be a exclusive problem or sin of America only.

There’s a lot of history, real history to be found on the subject if only it was taught or really searched for.

Well, that’s my two cents anyway. God bless you and God bless America.

Wonder why you never heard of this movie? Can you say Censorship?

You know why. Saw this on Tucker last night. Tucker Carlson interviews Nick Loeb about Roe v. Wade Movie

I’m amazed this YouTube video doesn’t have any likes Published on Jan 4, 2018 not one like. I liked it but doesn’t show up. I wonder is it because the publisher has some kind of setting in place or is it being censored by YouTube? Dr. Alveda KingRoe v. Wade the Movie

“The plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, which struck down pro-life laws and made abortion legal in every state, was Norma McCorvey. Though initially the icon for abortion advocates, she became pro-life in 1995. McCorvey remained active in the pro-life movement until her death on February 8, 2017.” The story of how ‘Jane Roe’ of Roe v. Wade became pro-life

“Terry said he was inspired to make the film when he realized how few people knew about McCorvey’s life. “When I went to her funeral,” he said, “I had a cameraman with me, and I was shocked at how few people were there.”

He was also bothered by false narratives of McCorvey’s life found in the secular media.

DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – A film honoring a late pro-life icon is now available for online viewing. A Cold Day In Hell tells the life of Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion and has led to the deaths of 60 million unborn children and counting.

After a dramatic conversion, she became a highly outspoken member of the pro-life movement. McCorvey passed away in February 2017. A Cold Day In Hell celebrates her life and her conversion.” New film pays tribute to Norma McCorvey: THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE ROE OF ‘ROE V. WADE’

“The media seems to be doing an effective job of rightfully condemning many people who have an association with the Ku Klux Klan — but one exception to this seems to be Planned Parenthood’s “beloved” founder, Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger is usually described as a “birth control pioneer” who founded Planned Parenthood, but she also met with members of the Klan, advocated eugenics, and supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit.”

Sanger wrote about her meeting with the Klan in her autobiography. Yet somehow this fact is made light of, glossed over, or completely ignored by the media.” Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger spoke to the Ku Klux Klan and supported eugenics. So why does the organization still honor her?

You might find the following articles interesting.

“Abortion advocates often claim as a defense of abortion that no one can really, truly define the moment life begins. Without knowing that, they say, there’s no real argument against abortion. Consider, for example, Melissa Harris-Perry’s insistence that life begins “whenever you feel like it does.” Obama famously said that the question of when life begins was above his pay grade. While the science of embryology has long since been settled, it’s still not good enough for abortion activists.

But a new scientific breakthrough might go a long way towards changing hearts and minds: scientists have been able to capture the moment life begins, with a burst of fluorescence as a new life is conceived…” Scientists say life begins at conception with a burst of fluorescence

“April 26, 2018 – Whenever I see a media figure passionately defend the pro-life position, I always get curious. It’s not surprising that there are pro-life people in the media, of course, especially on the right side of the spectrum.

But when someone chooses to dedicate his time and energy in the media sphere to exposing the truth about abortion, revealing the lies of abortion activists, and advocating for the rights of pro-lifers to bring the truth to the public square week after week, I want to know what drives that passion.” Two very personal reasons Tucker Carlson hates abortion

Liberalism is a mental disorder and effects anything it comes in contact with.

“Spokesman John McGuirk of the Save the 8th group — which refers to the Eighth Amendment in the constitution that bans abortions — told Irish television Saturday that many Irish citizens will not recognize the country they are waking up in.

The official vote tally for Friday’s vote has not been finished but exit polls predict a massive victory for repealing the constitutional ban.

McGuirk said it will now be relatively easy for the government to pass more liberal abortion laws in the parliament.” The Latest: Anti-abortion group admits defeat in Irish vote

God Bless America and you.

I cant believe this isn’t in the news more.Has America really been dumbed down this much?Have we fallen this far?

UPDATE 1/27/2018

Great interview with liberal Harvard Law Professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz about president Trump supposed “corruption” and “collusion” accusations and the Obama photo. Click on the link below for the Video and article.

Dershowitz: I Wouldn’t Have Campaigned for Obama If I Knew About Farrakhan Pic

Harvard Law Professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz said he would not have campaigned for then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) if he knew about the future president’s photo op with Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, is a “virulent anti-Semite and anti-American,” Dershowitz said on “Fox & Friends.”

( I wonder who else wouldn’t have campaigned or even voted for Obama? What would America look like today without the last 8 years of the Obama corrupt and lawless administration?

But then again what if “Crooked Hillary” would have been elected in his place?)

I really can’t believe this isn’t in the news. I didn’t watch any “Lame Stream Media” last night but whats the point? I know they wont report on it. All they do is bash Trump. It’s old and all they are doing is cementing his support among the people.

With all the revaluations on the corruption of this last administration now and during the last 8 years, the Deep State crap of the administration, the FBI and DOJ and the none coverage of it and collusion is outrages, disgusting and something you just wouldn’t think would happen in America.

The liberals, progressives need to shut the hell up, clean up their own house. They have NO creditability what so ever in my view to cast stones at anyone for anything. All they have is the race card, rumors and innuendos. They never produce facts on anything, their record of doing anything good is none non-existent , their major city’s and the states they run are failures!

I’m just sick to death of it and it seems like any intelligent or thinking person with an once of sense would be too.

So what am I talking about? What’s got me so pissed? Check it out.

They say they didn’t want to release it because they thought it might effect the election. Ya think? Politicians are corrupt no doubt for the most part. There are some good ones though too. But the democrat party has got to take the cake!

This is the first one I saw and shared.

The Photo That Never Saw The Light of Day: Obama With Farrakhan In 2005

A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”

Bombshell Photo Emerges Of Obama Smiling With Black Nationalist Hate Group Leader Louis Farrakhan

A new photo has emerged that shows former President Barack Obama posing with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the black nationalist hate group Nation of Islam.

The photo shows then Democratic Illinois Sen. Barack Obama smiling with Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005. Farrakhan is known for embracing radically anti-Semitic and anti-white views, as even the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center has acknowledged.

Obama-Farrakhan Photo Released After 13-Year Media Cover-up

A photograph of then-Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that was taken in 2005 at a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, DC, was released Saturday after a 13-year cover-up to protect Obama’s political career.

Journalist Askia Muhammad told TriceEdneyWire.com that he took the photograph after Obama had engaged “in a warm conversation with constituent and fellow Chicagoan Minister Louis Farrakhan.” However, he realized that the photograph could endanger Obama’s presidential ambitions, which were already being widely discussed.

One guy talked to the photographer.

Inside the secret Obama-Farrakhan photograph: Obama with Farrakhan in 2005: The hidden pic

Can there be any doubt this guy was and is a muslim sympathizer, a racist as many have claimed for years?

This guy is a traitor, a criminal a lier and and should be in prison along with the rest of his accomplices and administration and go down in history as the worst president in American history.

Well, that’s my two cents. As always God bless America and you. #MAGA, Drain the swamp!

Trump, the other side of negativity, politics and the “Lamestream Media”.

After a year and then some of negative, anti Thump allegations, innuendos, smears, accusations with no proof what so ever of any wrongdoing. Let’s take a different look at things. Found some Positive things on our 45th President. It was kind of difficult a lot of misleading headlines that turn into hit jobs. Some you may have heard or sean before and some you may have missed. Me personally, I was was not a original Trump supporter. I was a Cruz guy, after he became the nominee I got behind him and my support has been growing ever since and believe me I’ve been watching very closely.

I think I’m a pretty good judge of character. I worked with the public for almost 20 years before I had to retire do to medical issues. In my experience, I think I got pretty good at sizing people up.

Been very interested in and followed politics for many years, my first offical vote as an adult was for Reagan and have watched the change of the country ever since. I think you can look at politicians and pretty easily tell when their being a politician and a real person, ( they may be real and sincere but being a politician they just can’t help coming of as staged or not so sincere) to me anyways. Most people or a lot of people sadly don’t take the time to look at things and just take the popular opinion or the “lamestream media’s” perspective or it sounds good and makes me feel good  so it must be OK and just move on not realizing how that action affects the country, or history and their own lives.

I’ve  gotten so sick of all the negativity surrounding our 45th President I don’t watch “Mainstream Media” news anymore  at all and considering just canceling local channels from my TV provider, there’s so much crap on TV any more anyways I’m moving closer and closer to unplugging altogether.

Moving on, here some stories, post, articles and photos I like and found. What got me going on this little journey was the tweet below. I had posted and shared her video before.

For 16 years, Anthony “Tony” P. Senecal was Trump’s personal butler at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s home and club in Palm Beach, Fla. Few people know Trump as well as Senecal. During the first interview Senecal has given since retiring last year, he told Newsmax what it was like to work for him.

“I got to know Donald Trump after he spoke [at Liberty University] in 2012,” Falwell told Sean on Hannity. “I learned so much about him that the public never hears.” Falwell went on to list Trump’s numerous charitable givings.

“Right after he visited here last time I called him about a large Christian ministry in another state that needed some help,” Falwell explained. “I learned within a day or two he had donated 100,000 dollars of his own money.”

Falwell also recounted the story of an inner inner city basketball tournament Trump rescued from financial disaster.

“He learned about Clyde Frazier Jr. who ran the Harlem Hoops tournament in the inner city and was killed in the 9/11 attacks,” Falwell said. “He searched down the family and donated the money to keep that tournament going.”

A sad Anniversary this weekend. LA Riots 25 years ago, April 29th 1992.

It’s a sad reminder this weekend 1992 Los Angeles riots and not much has changed unfortunately. Last night I watched THE LOST TAPES LA Riots . I hated watching it, I have such bad memories of it. Nothing I’m sure compared to the people that were actually down there. I had been driving a bus for about two or three years at the time and if I remember right we were the only company that drove down there. It was the only time I carried in my 17 year career of driving city buses. I remember driving down Spring street in L.A. and seeing looters pulling up the the steel bars of a liquor store and looting it. I remember some started looking at me and I thought if they come after me I’m shooting. I had just watched the night before the Reginald Denny beating. Attack on Reginald Denny  .

Reginald Denny (didn’t) “Step On the Gas”

“Twenty-five years after Reginald Denny was dragged out of his big rig and viciously beaten on live TV during the L.A. riots, the former trucker apparently wants nothing to do with the anniversary of the violence.” More here. Where Is Reginald Denny?

L.A. Riots Attacker Tells Shocking Story 20 Years Later

Sadly after 8 years of the first African American president things have only gotten worse. In my opinion he did nothing but add to the problem and did more harm than good. In the last years of his presidency even some in the black community were angry calling him out on it. But I digress, that’s my opinion.

They say “Those Who Do Not Learn History Are Doomed To Repeat It.”  No doubt we’ve been seeing it repeated throughout the country the last few years. And some say they’re about to happen again. “Twenty-five years after dozens of people died in the Los Angeles riots, nearly 60% of residents there believe more unrest is likely soon.

The six days of riots marked a low in race relations for Southern California after the white officers on trial for the beating of black driver Rodney King were acquitted.

Surveys taken in the years since have seen a recovery in residents’ belief that different races can get along, though this year’s poll shows Angelenos believe the events of 1992 will repeat.”  Read more here. Majority of L.A. residents believe riots like 1992 likely soon, study finds

There will be some TV shows this weekend showing some specials on the Riots. A great article and rundown of the shows.  “To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the riot or uprising or “incident” that torched Los Angeles in the wake of the 1992 Rodney King trial, National Geographic, A&E, Netflix, Showtime, ABC and the Smithsonian Channel have all produced films on the subject, and I recommend that you watch more than one, though it will be painful. Actually, do it because it will be painful. Seriously. Each of them has its own methodology for contending with the “why.” All of them together make it clear that what we need to be asking now is, “What will it take for human beings to wake the hell up and start actually learning from our own history?”  More here. Under Color of Authority: TV Takes on the 1992 L.A.

Twenty-five years ago, April 29, 1992, riots exploded in Los Angeles after four policemen were acquitted after being charged with the violent beating of Rodney King, caught on video for the entire nation to see.

According to The Los Angeles Times, 63 lives were lost in the riots, with the estimated total economic cost pegged at $1 billion, with $735 million in property damage and 1,550 buildings destroyed or damaged.

But this is more than a fact of national history for me. It is personal history. I was there.” More here. Lessons Unlearned From the ’92 LA Riots

One thing I really don’t understand is why the black community terns on it’s own and goes after blacks who have “Made it” done well accomplished a lot and call them “Uncle Toms” like Star Parker, Ben Carson, Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas, I can remember them going after Colin Powell at least up until he started going after Republicans, then it seemed to be none existent.

Pushing 60 now I’d like to think I’m not a racist, I try not to be and I always used to try to give people the benefit of the doubt. But, after time in Army in the seventies seeing the racial divide and how people acted, after 17 years dealing with the public, driving a city bus. Seeing what’s going on in the country now “BLM”, Baltimore , Ferguson to name a few it’s tough. I’ve worked with and known some great black people over my lifetime and come across the very opposite. I’m very sure the same can be said on the other side. There’s bad people in all races no doubt. I do my best not to associate with out right racist in real live and on social media. I ask God to forgive me and ask for His help when I have problems with racism. I guess that’s all any of us can do. It’s a sad situation for sure.

One side of the Riots that doesn’t get much attention I think is what happened in Korea Town. La Riots store owners protect store with guns(Original recording)

“The National Guard and Police wouldn’t come to Korea Town. South Central Koreans understand the 2nd Amendment.” We had to bear arms

God bless America and you.
