Manuel Franco: I'm Blessed To Win This!

Wisconsin man came forward to claim his nearly $1 billion. He won the most recent Powerball jackpot.
In a handful of states, you can remain anonymous when you win the multi-state lotteries Powerball, Mega Millions and Lucky For Life.

In Wisconsin, you will have to come forward. Two Republican state lawmakers are hoping to get legislative action on this. They hope that Democratic governor Tom Evers might sign it into law.

The winner of the nearly $800 million Powerball jackpot came forward. He's got a lifetime of riches and he's under 30 years old.

The 24-year old man is excited and also very cautious about the thrill of this huge victory.

Out of that lottery lump sum he take about $474 million (excluding city, state and federal taxes).

He purchased a five line ticket at $10. It cost $2 per play. It cost $3 for a Power Play multiplier. Powerball tickets cannot be cancelled upon purchase.

Franco, who is single but has a girlfriend, explained how he "felt lucky" on the day he bought the ticket, so he stopped into a New Berlin gas station near Milwaukee after work to purchase it. He almost winked at the camera, he said, but he didn't.

He revealed that he wasn't "ready for it at all" when the $2 ticket won. He's decided to take the lump sum.

"It's hard to live your life knowing that you have the ticket everyone wants," Franco explained, indicating that it was a bit frightening having it in his possession until he turned it in. He kept the ticket in a safe in his house.

He purchased the ticket at a local Speedway in Milwaukee area. The national convenience store chain in New Bern can take at least the $100,000 cash prize.

Now Manuel Franco has nearly a lifetime of riches. He lives in West Allis and now he so humbled by the win, he doesn't know what to do about it.

If I won the lottery today, what would I do? (Expect trolls to pick the dumbest answers)

I would immediately quit my job and collect my winnings.
I would wait until the media circus dies down and plan my strategy on how to invest my lottery winnings.
I would just die if I won the Powerball or Mega Millions.
I would never play the lottery. It's a gateway to other issues.
I would collect my winnings and continue to work. I want to continue working because it's just money.
Please Specify:

The first thing I want to do whenever I purchase a lottery ticket, is have money on hand.

The operator is required to take money before issuing a ticket. Make sure you have your numbers placed on either a betting card, your lottery app or a previous ticket. Most operators will help you plug numbers in through the terminal or place an automatic bet for you. However in the case of long lines or possible errors, it would be best to be prepared for the transaction. Some states do offer debit and credit transactions.

If I've gotten my information from the local lottery commission I won't have any issues with discrepancies.

You cannot cancel Powerball or Mega Millions tickets. They are property of your state (or territory's) lottery commission. Any alteration, distortion or underage playing will void the games.

Second, make sure I will write your name, phone number or email address on your ticket. If the ticket is lost, stolen, or damaged, I may find it harder to win over lottery officials. If I don't write my name on the lottery ticket and I lost it or a crooked lottery operator gets his hands on it: It's your word against the winner.

State lottery providers have a license number. The place that sold the winning ticket does keep records of the transaction. The tickets are time stamped, verified and authorized. If I lose the ticket, make sure I will file a police report. I will not get on television saying that I've lost the ticket. It could cause a panic and if I was lying about it, I could face charges of misleading or filing a false police report.

If I am the winner of a Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot and the amount is a lot, I will take a picture of the winning ticket. It will also be insurance if the ticket is stolen. If it's lost, there's not much we can say about it other than it will be difficult to tell an "already heard it before" lottery commission that I lost a ticket.

If I have a picture of the stolen ticket and have a legit police report, it's likely I can make a case against the person who stole the ticket.

In most states, the required age to play the lottery is 18 years or older. Do not let anyone under the playing age purchase a ticket or lottery game. The operator could lose their license or you will forfeit your prize if the regional lottery operator determined that an underage player was the winner.

If I win the Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot, I will hire a qualified lottery and huge sum lawyer.

Make sure that a large sum lawyer is certified in dealing with lottery wins. Don't entrust your winning with a law firm that doesn't know how to deal with lottery winnings, investment or day trade.

If I win the Powerball, Mega Millions or multi-state games, I will immediately cancel my phone number and email address. I will get rid of social media. I will delete Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Whatsapp, YouTube and Dailymotion accounts. If I have dating websites like Tinder, POF, Badoo, Grindr, OKCupid, Match, I would cancel those too.

It eliminates the junk food media from finding me and putting my face, name and contacts in the public arena.

I would wait until I get my lottery winnings before quitting my job. I don't want to burn bridges with any employer. Cause I might want to return to work one day and I need to at least stay active. Counting money can be boring.... I'm just saying.

Please, don't quit a job until you are sure you've won the lottery. Don't rush to judgment about being a lottery winner. Sometimes a person who wins the lottery never expects it to happen. Don't sit around the house hoping the day will come you'll be the millionaire. Don't have issues with your employer.

You may end up back at your job if you decide to go back into the workforce.

I will create a establishment will and trust fund.

I will make an investment in your money. I would put my lottery money in a trust fund since I have a child and place a trust in lieu of trusted family and friends. Only if I should die, I would make a will or entrust.

I would make sure I have someone who is trusted take care of the winnings if I have died.

I am often cautious about bragging but if you're bragging about you're winnings, that's fine. I you're like smart with the lottery winnings, I would warn you that canceling your appearance avoids the unnecessary stress from opportunists. Best believe opportunists are willing to swarm your social media with requests.

I don't want to pay the city or state police to secure my home or my property. I don't want my son, his mother, my family or closest friends getting harassed, solicited for information, trolled online and death threats.

Since I live in a state that doesn't have to reveal your name, I'm in the clear. However, if I would win in a state that doesn't conceal your name and I'm forced to become public, I would have to share my success with the junk food media. I would expect death threats, harassing calls, scammers and untrustworthy people to meddle.

Estranged family members, ex-girlfriends, fraudulent charity organizations and robbers are expected to exploit me because I'm now loaded with riches. As explained in my previous "The Cash Fever" postings, there are family members, former co-workers (who heard verbal promise, not written promise), ex-girlfriends, ex-boyfriends, ex-spouses, fraudulent charities, robbers and cyber criminals in the waiting. They will find ways to exploit for short-term gains or criminal acts.

I will always keep a calm head and do not treat winning the lottery like its a "normal" thing.

I will make sure I pay off all debts before I cash in my ticket. First things first, I will pay off any college loans, car loans, property, utility billings, spousal support, child support, back taxes and credit cards. I don't want the state's job and family service or taxation department to offset a hefty portion of my lottery prize.

I won't let these issues ruin my credit score or chances at buying better things.

Yeah, the lottery is a gateway to putting in other venues. Some may blow their money at casinos, horsetracks, fantasy football and online poker. Some may blow it on sex, food, drugs and alcohol.

Granted that I am of free will and I am given the right to do whatever you want with your earnings.

Seriously am I going to get a gold statue of your image?

Am I willing to pay for five chefs, a butler, housekeeper, nanny, and chauffeur?

Am I going to buy a large property or own land? I am I willing to pay for the land tax?

Do I want fancy cars and a private jet? You got to have full coverage insurance for those fancy rides.

With the Jobs and Tax Cuts Act in effect, will your tax bracket change. Will I pay more or less in taxes with the IRS's code on gambling wins and losses?

You know that money will change you. You might become stingy with the winnings. Cause money comes and goes. You should be humble.

Cause money will change a person when they're rich. Don't expect your life to be "normal" when you win the lottery. Cause it's not going to be normal. It could a great experience or the worst thing.

The Have-Nots Will Always Try To Make You Feel Guilty About Winning. Ignore Them And Be Happy About Your Success.

I seriously believe he's going to have to move away from Milwaukee. But he's going to figure out what he's planning on doing next. If he happens to come to Journal de la Reyna and see our posting about the lottery, he might take our advice at his discretion. I am not a financial adviser. I am a common-sense type of person who knows that if I happened to win the lottery, I already have a plan of action.

Because I don't want to blow my winnings in less than 10 years. I want to cherish the success without any controversy.

Seth Moulton Wants To Battle!

Seth Moulton joins the race for the Democratic nomination.
Another candidate jumps into the crowd field of contenders.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) is the newest candidate entering in the race for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Moulton is married to his wife of two years, Liz Boardman and has one daughter who born last year named Emmy.

Moulton, a moderate Democrat who considered a run since 2017 made his announcement official.

He is retired U.S. Marine who served four tours of duty in the War of Iraq.

Moulton was born in 1978 in Salem, Massachusetts, the son of Lynn Alice and Wilbur Moulton, Jr.

He grew up in Marblehead and is one of the oldest of three. He graduated from Phillips Academy, a co-educational boarding and day university-preparatory school in Andover. He attended Harvard  University and joined the U.S. Marine after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Seth Moulton is running for President of the United States. Do you think he is capable of being president? (Expect the dumbest answers picked by trolls)

Yes. I believe Moulton has the ability to beat President Donald Trump. He has a bold agenda and is willing to work on holding government officials accountable.
Yes. I believe we need a bold face in this race. Seth Moulton is not tainted like some of the candidates running. A fresh face is a better choice. Seth Moulton has a better chance a winning.
No. I think Seth Moulton has been disloyal to progressives. He is a corporate Democrat and supports big business. With progressives calling for reforms to the status quo, I believe he will continue a legacy  of the same old song and dance most Democrats promise but never deliver.
I have no opinion of Seth Moulton. I have to know a little more about him before I support his bid for president.

Moulton decided to run for the U.S. House against incumbent John Tierney.

Moulton defeated Tierney in a primary and went on to win the general election.

On Good Morning America, Moulton announced his intentions for president.

"I am here to tell you and to tell America that I am running for president."

"I'm running because we have to beat Donald Trump, and I want us to beat Donald Trump because I love this country. We've never been a country that gets everything right. But we're a country that, at our best, thinks that we might," the three-term congressman said in a video as he launched his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

He along with fellow colleagues Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) and Moulton were the lawmakers who were opposed to Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer being the Democratic Party's top leaders.
Former Marine turned lawmaker determines to be the nominee for the Democratic Party.
He will join a handful of candidates who could be defeated by Donald J. Trump.

Trump has a 75% chance of winning the election. We need to get our acts together. By far, no candidate other than Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden stand out in this race for the nomination.

Moulton becomes the third candidate from Massachusetts to launch a presidential campaign, joining Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Republican Gov. Bill Weld, who’s primary challenging Trump.

Moulton’s scheduled to visit all four early voting primary and caucus states this week. He heads to New Hampshire on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, when he’ll headline ‘Politics and Eggs,’ a must stop in the first-in-the-nation primary state for White House hopefuls. Later Wednesday, Moulton campaigns in South Carolina, which holds the first southern primary. That will be followed Thursday by stops in Iowa – which kicks off the caucus and primary calendar – as well as Nevada, which holds the first western contest.

Kate Smith Dropped Decades Later!

Kate Smith's version of God Bless America is banned.
Kathryn Elizabeth Smith born in 1907 died 1986 was known as Kate Smith and the First Lady of Radio. Now she is known as the first female vocalist who was banned from the airwaves.

Smith has a statue named after her in Philadelphia. Well this year, the statue was removed from the Philadelphia Flyers Xfinity Live! arena on Sunday. They covered the statue up amid allegations that she stroked racism.

"The NHL principle, 'Hockey is for Everyone' is the heart of everything the Flyers stand for. As a result, we cannot stand idle while material from another era gets in the way of who we are today."

That was the statement of Paul Homgren, the president of the Flyers.

She was famous for her version of "God Bless America."

The New York Yankees also pulled usage of her song.

Now some conservatives are crying and screaming that "political correctness" is destroying a great talent.

Smith died in 1986 at the age of 79, was considered an icon. She received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1982.

Songs like That's Why Darkies Were Born and Pickaninny Heaven were sung by her. Ray Henderson and Lew Brown wrote the songs but Smith sung the vocals.

Many statues that endorse racism are being removed. You may remember how the far-white was upset over Confederate soldiers being removed from schools and public squares.

Today, they still continue to fight this stuff.

Easter Blood: Sri Lanka Terrorist Bombings!

Extremists destroy churches and hotels in multiple bombing attacks in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Here in the United States, the far-white and Republicans will try to exploit this for political gains.

We have a gun violence problem. We do have a terrorist problem! It's not often caused by Black, Brown or immigrants who practice Islam. It's the white Christian who often is an incel who believes those who aren't white are destroying the United States. They take up a few propaganda videos off social media, watch Fox News, read websites like Breitbart, Infowars and WorldNetDaily for their daily fixation on blaming someone who's the "other."

Soon as a foreign attack happens in the world, the U.S. is immediately throwing around their strength. We immediately want to help and throw judgement on those who commit acts. The junk food media talk about for a few days and then off to another controversy.

There were foreign and Sri Lankans killed when extremists attacked hotels and churches in the metropolis capital of Colombo.

The blasts killed 35 British and Americans.

Donald J. Trump, Mike Pence, Congress, Mike Pompeo and Christopher Wray of the FBI were notified. They offer the usual "thoughts and prayers" and "their hearts going out to" nonsense.

They also vow to bring those involved to justice. A handful of those involved are probably dead so there's no justice.

But to capture those who bankrolled and drove the terrorists to the facilities are going to be caught eventually.

Seven so far were nabbed. The government imposed a curfew for those in its largest cities. They pulled social media offline temporary to keep trolls from inflaming tensions.

A bomb was also found at Sri Lanka's main airport and it was defused. That bomb going off could have impacted travel and kill numerous foreign travelers.

The far-white here in the United States along with Israeli, Canadian and British far-white agitators will immediately try to blame Muslims, point the finger at lawmakers Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MI) and Rep. Rashida Tliab (D-MN) for the acts of these individuals.

An intelligence memo warning of a possible attack had circulated 10 days earlier, raising questions about whether more preventative measures could have been taken.

"Serious action need to be taken as to why this warning was ignored," Sri Lanka's Minister of Telecommunications, Harin Fernando, tweeted along with a photo of the memo. The document, titled "Information of an alleged plan attack," is dated April 11 and signed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Priyalal Dissanayake.
Mass causalities on Easter Sunday.
The explosions blew out the tiled roofs of churches and hotel windows, killing worshippers and hotel guests in the process.

Images and footage showed bloodied pews, broken glass, and plumes of smoke.

"This is an attack against the whole of Sri Lanka because Sri Lanka is (a) multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural country, and the whole country comes together in celebration of Easter Sunday," Gunasekera said.

The violence punctured a decade of relative peace in the country following the end of its civil war in 2009 -- where attacks were common during the 25-year struggle.

They Just Slammed His Head To The Concrete!

Students at a local Florida school capture the moment a teen was slammed to the ground and bleeding from his head.
Broward and St. Lucie Counties are located in Florida. Again the state with the most controversies in the junk food media has another one.

A teen was brutally slammed to the concrete. Another was body slammed. Both were caught on camera and it's gotten major outrage from Black Lives Matter and civil rights leaders.

The state that picked that racist Ron DeSantis as their governor and Rick Scott, the ex-governor as their U.S. Senator. They probably high fived the cops who body slammed these young boys to the ground.

Starting a week ago, Diederech Hueck, a deputy with the St. Lucie County boys was seen throwing an 11-year old boy to the ground. This was outside Lincoln Park Academy in Fort Pierce.

The filming happened on April 9 and the sheriff said that the body slam wasn't "excessive force."

Ken Mascara, the sheriff said that he didn't see anything wrong with the county boy's actions. He said that the junk food media missed the whole story. I am assuming this a Republican sheriff.

The sheriff says the boy was causing multiple disturbances on the day in question. He refused to comply with instructions by school staff... and was physically aggressive to staff and students.

He said his "boy" did everything right to defuse the situation. Yeah, that's what we do! Body slam him. Next thing, you might use the Taser. Or perhaps use deadly force, after the county boy can say he feared for his life the boy was reaching for his service instruments.

The boy was taken to the hospital and treated then released.

The boy allegedly chest bumped a school staff member. He was arrested and suspended from the school.

View the video here on Journal de la Reyna.

Then the most recent incident in Florida which led to hashtag activism.

Broward County boys slammed a boy to ground causing him to bleed from the head.

This was a violent arrest. The Broward County sheriff is facing a calls to cannon fire the two county boys who served a knuckle style chili and toe jam jelly to a teen.

This happened at J.P. Taravella High School. This prompt an investigation into whether the county boys exercised excessive force.

"The behavior of these Broward Sheriff's Office deputies was outrageous and unacceptable," Broward mayor Mark Bogen said in a statement. "The officer who jumped on the student, punched the student and banged his head to the ground should be fired immediately. 
This was the moment a Florida county boy prepares to body slam a boy to ground.
The Miami Herald reports that the video was not time-stamped. It was shared on social media and took place outside a McDonald's near the school. The footage which has been making its way through the internet began with one student handcuffed on the ground. Then as another male teen approaches a county boy, he got a dose of pepper-spray.

The county boy who led the arrest Christopher Krickovich said that a large gathering of students gathered to see a fight. They intervened to prevent the incident from getting worse. They said that the teen got in the way.

They took him to the ground. Another county boy rushed in and forced the boy's neck down. In the background, the video shows a female screaming, "What are you doing! What are you doing! He's bleeding! He's bleeding!" Dozens of bookbag wearing students circled the officers. 

The school board also demands full accountability.

They don't buy the county boy's story. 

The county boys were reassigned to another area.

Watch the full video here.

Again, this is what those so-called Blue Lives Matter activists support. They automatically believe that the teens in the videos were in the wrong.

Whatever happened to defusing the situation without using force?

I guess in the minds of folks like Donald J. Trump, "please don't be too nice."

Remember in 2017, Trump said that during a police conference.

"When you see thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in; rough. I said. 'please don't be too nice.' Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put your hand over it. Like, don't hit their head, and they've just killed somebody. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?"

Devin Nunes Sues The Wind!

Devin Nunes sues critics.
The morons run Washington, DC. Last month, the California Republican who badgered Hillary Clinton for her emails is being mocked online. Now he's threatening to sue critics of publications and private individuals for calling him a bullshit artist.

This is a public official who is likely going to be mocked. I mean they disrespect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) without any regard for the consequences.

I mock Sean Hannity for being a softball. He is a public figure.

Donald J. Trump gets mocked constantly. Despite his threats, he knows he can't sue anyone who parodies him, mocks him or attacks him personally. So you can go after his family, his allies, his waistline, his hair, his god awful tan. The only thing you can't do is threaten him, Mike Pence, their families or any U.S. federal worker elected or serving on the bench. You could get up to 25 in federal time out if you threaten a federal worker.

In the wake of Nick Sandmann suing The Washington Post, CNN and possibly Kathy Griffin for criticism of him during the infamous stare down of a Native American elder, here comes California Republican Devin Nunes.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is the guy who spent two years protecting Donald J. Trump from the Robert Mueller probe. He often appears on Fox News for a little softball. He appears on Sean "Softball" Hannity's primetime circus.

The lawmaker sues Twitter for $250 million after folks made parody accounts of him.

The lawsuit is ridiculous.

Nunes said in an interview with the softball that rather than being an example of excessive litigiousness, his complaint is intended to be "the first of many" such lawsuits against social media platforms. He argued that Twitter is the "main proliferator" of "slanderous" news and even added that he considered his lawsuit part of the Russia investigation.

Nunes' complaint might never get to the judgment phase and will most likely not result in a $250 million payout for Nunes and his actual, not-a-fake-Twitter-account mother. But that's not the point. To the California Republican and his allies, social media platforms have been far too unfair to conservative and right-leaning users. And now, Nunes argues, it's time to fight back — in court.

The 40-page complaint filed on Monday, Nunes argues that tweets like that and the two parody Twitter accounts were not merely examples of Twitter being Twitter. Rather, he argues that the social media platform served as "a portal of defamation" by permitting parody accounts of his mother and his imaginary bovine to exist on the platform. Moreover, he says that the purpose of those parody accounts was to "influence the outcome of the 2018 Congressional election and to intimidate [him] and interfere with his important investigation of corruption by the Clinton campaign and alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential Election."

In his claims against Liz Mair, the Republican strategist also targeted in the complaint, Nunes argues that Mair "harbored spite, ill-will, actual malice, and a demonstrated desire to injure Nunes' good name and reputation" by, for example, publicly referencing a winery partly owned by Nunes that is now enmeshed in legal problems, and by referring to Nunes as "Dirty Devin" on Twitter.

John Singleton In Dire Straits!

Famed director John Singleton had a stroke.
The man who made Black cinema a force to be reckoned with suffered a stroke.

You may remember the iconic movie Boyz N The Hood. It was preserved in the National Film Registry inside the United States Library of Congress. The movie was done by John Singleton. He was only 22 when he started filming the movie.

Boyz N The Hood told a tale about the forgotten in Los Angeles. A young director managed to give Cuba Gooding, Jr., Morris Chestnut, Nia Long and Laurence Fishburne name recognition.

Singleton suffered a stroke this weekend.

According to TMZ, which first broke the news, Singleton had been on a flight from Costa Rica back to the U.S., which may have contributed to the incident.

Singleton, who also directed films 2 Fast 2 Furious, Four Brothers and “Shaft, received two Emmy nominations in 2017 for filming The People v. O.J. Simpson and documentary L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later. He also directed the music video for Michael Jackson’s Remember the Time.

"On Wednesday, April 17th our beloved son/father, John Singleton, suffered a stroke while at the hospital," the statement read. "John is currently in the ICU and under great medical care. We ask that privacy be given to him and our family at this time and appreciate all of the prayers that have been pouring in from his fans, friends and colleagues."

The two-time Oscar nominee for Boyz n the Hood suffered a "mild" stroke after checking into a hospital this week after feeling ill following a trip to Costa Rica, a family member told TMZ.

Luke Perry passed away last month after suffering a severe stroke. He was best known for his roles on Beverly Hills 90210 had passed away after a massive stroke.
