Jon Stewart Strikes Hannity Hard!

Jon Stewart hits That Guy Who Helped Obama Win hard.

The Bundy Ranch standoff has caused a rift of conflict. That annoying conservative agitator defends the right wing rancher who refuses to pay federal fees for allowing his cattle on federal lands. He and his family along with a handful of armed supporters are being egged on by that agitator to strike.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart wanted to point out the ongoing hypocrisy of the conservative agitator.

He points to episodes of his Loserville program and radio program to acknowledge that the conservative agitator has a "selective outrage" towards government.

That conservative agitator went berserk on Stewart. He thinks that Stewart was "obsessed" with him.

It's also noted that Stewart was called a "hack" and an apologist for the Obama Administration.

Stewart responds back hard.

The feud continues on.

Lupita Nyong'o Named People's Most Beautiful!

Actress Lupita Nyong'o is ranked People's Most Beautiful.

Me and S. Baldwin have talked about the People Magazine's most beautiful being mostly White.

For once I am actually happy that the celebrity magazine named a person of color as their most beautiful.

Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o was awarded an Oscar for her breakthrough role as Patsey, a devoted young cotton picker in the movie 12 Years A Slave.

Nyong'o was born in Mexico City, Mexico, to Dorothy and Peter Anyang' Nyong'o, a college professor turned politician in Kenya.

It is a Luo tradition to name a child after the events of the day, so her parents gave her a Spanish name, Lupita (a diminutive of Guadalupe).

She is of Luo descent on both sides of her family, and is the second of six children.

Nyong'o identifies as Mexican-Kenyan. Her father was the former Minister for Medical Services in the Kenyan government. At the time of her birth, he was a visiting lecturer in political science at El Colegio de México in Mexico City, and her family had been living in Mexico for three years.

12 Years A Slave was directed by Steve McQueen. It is the real-life story of Solomon Northup (played by Chiwitel Ejiofor), a free born African American man who is sold into slavery in 1841.

She expressed her excitement on the social networks:

Well on behalf of Journal de la Reyna, we congratulate her. We wish well on her future successes.

The Klan Working For You!

They are looking out for you!

The racist right still simmers in the age of Barack Obama.

The Southern Poverty Law Center concludes that there are over 1,000 active hate groups in the United States. These groups and online forums are catering to the extremism in America.

A bunch of people who have resentment towards someone's race, gender, sexuality, religion, political and economic standings.

The Klan is one of the oldest domestic terrorist groups. They've slightly increased in the past five years. They are very active in the Midwest and Northeast.

When you got White men who are frustrated with the changing demographics in this country, you will see them go berserk.

The Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan launched a neighborhood watch in the area of Ridge Road in Fairview Township in response to a recent rash of break-ins, said Frank Ancona, the organization’s imperial wizard and president.

Leadership of a local Traditional American Knights chapter contacted the organization’s headquarters in Park Hills, Mo., to find out whether the national organization would sponsor the crime watch, and Ancona said he gave the midstate “klavern” his blessing.

“It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement,” Ancona said. “We don’t hate people. We are an organization who looks out for our race. We believe in racial separation. God created each species after its kind and saw that it was good.”

Residents along Ridge Road woke up to find fliers bearing Ku Klux Klan propaganda at their doorsteps Friday morning.

The fliers include a depiction of a KKK member in a white robe and hood, and a note that says:

“Neighborhood Watch. You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

PennLive obtained a picture of the flier taken by a resident who received it.

PennLive writer Eric Veronikis reports that Fairview Township police Sgt. Davis Holland said police are aware of the propaganda, but would not comment further.

Ancona would not divulge information about the local chapter that distributed the flier; nor would he reveal the names of local leadership or other members of the midstate chapter.
Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona1.jpg
Head of the Klan wants to establish a neighborhood watch.
A number of people recently called the Traditional American Knights hotline from Fairview Township saying they don’t believe the local police department is doing enough to combat a recent string of break-ins in the area, Ancona said.

He said he doesn’t necessarily believe the accusations against the police are true. But he does believe local police departments can get overwhelmed by crime and could use an extra hand looking out for criminals. Hence, the neighborhood watch.

Nine vehicles were reportedly broken into earlier this month at the FedEx facility off Industrial Drive in Fairview Township. Another man broke into several vehicles in the township in March. But he also was caught. And a robbery attempt at a Fairview Township home was foiled in January after police said the homeowner caught him in the act and pinned him to the ground.

The imperial wizard refused to help PennLive reach out to a local leader to discuss the neighborhood watch because only himself and national leadership are permitted to speak with media, he said.

That mandate exists to prevent others from misrepresenting the organization, Ancona said, referencing Frasier Glenn Miller, the reported former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights who allegedly shot and killed three people at a Jewish community center in Overland Park, Kan., a little more than a week ago.

While not affiliated with the Traditionalist American Knights, Ancona, who denounced Miller in the national press following the incident, said the alleged gunman went “rogue” and gave the KKK a black eye.

Ancona continued to soften his organization during an interview with PennLive on Sunday night.

He said members of the group, which has chapters in every state except Hawaii, are neighbors and colleagues who generally can’t discuss their involvement with the Traditionalist American Knights because of the negative light cast upon the KKK.

People can lose jobs and family and friends when they are traced back to the KKK, Ancona said. And that’s because the klan is “somewhat discriminated against,” he said.

Background checks are run on all potential members, Ancona said. And anyone with serious crimes on their records will not be admitted to the Traditionalist American Knights, he said.

Ancona described Pennsylvania as a “strong Yankee state” for his organization with a large membership base. The group’s “realm of greater Pennsylvania” encompasses West Virginia and western New York.

“Members could be the guy who is delivering your pizza. It could be law enforcement from the local sheriff’s office. It could be the nurse taking care of you in the emergency room,” Ancona said.

He stressed that the KKK is not affiliated with the neo-Nazi and skinhead movements. And Ancona said residents of Fairview Township should be relieved the neighborhood watch is underway.

Ancona said the Traditionalist American Knights consider anyone outside of the KKK “an alien.”

“Anyone who is not part of the klan is considered an alien,” Ancona said. “These are things that band us in this brotherhood.”

After the attack of a Jewish center by Glenn Miller (aka Frazier Glenn Cross) members of the Klan are trying to distance themselves from the domestic terrorist.

They considered Miller a snitch and a traitor to the cause.

They want to show the public they're not just proud racists but honest to god citizens.

Rolling laughter....

Hannity Goes Berserk On Jon Stewart!

That Guy Who Helped Obama Win is tired of being mocked by comedian. So now he's launched a feud against Comedy Central's host Jon Stewart.

That Guy Who Helped Obama Win is a certified asshole. The conservative agitator is so obsessed with taking down President Barack Obama it actually backfires.

I've explained it too many times that he's nothing more than a well paid agitator who relishes in division and hate.

Do you know that picking a fight with Jon Stewart will result in a bitter defeat?

It's not Jon Stewart's fault that he caught this punk ass conservative agitator lying to his audience yet again.

He's just telling the damn truth about that stupid right wing militia rancher. That rancher refuses to follow federal law and respect property. He making a mountain out of a mole hill. He's being a total asshole.

He and those who support him are WHITE EXTREMIST!

That annoying conservative agitator is stringing the possibility of a domestic terrorist attack.

Mediaite reports that That Guy Who Helped Obama Win went after Jon Stewart Tuesday night for mocking him over his support of Cliven Bundy and hypocrisy therewith. That annoying conservative agitator mused that Stewart is “kind of obsessed” with him, and called the late night comic the “chief apologist for the Obama administration.”
Obviously Jon Stewart catches the hypocrisy that comes out of that asshole's mouth.
The annoying conservative agitator insisted his main problem is with government overreach in Nevada, turning the tables on Stewart to wonder where he stands on Bundy, wildly speculating what Stewart’s true feelings on the situation could be. And beyond that, that conservative agitator rehashed his old foes.

“Did Jon Stewart ask Barack Obama about his friendship [with] this unapologetic domestic terrorist Bill Ayers [and Jeremiah Wright]?” says That Guy Who Helped Obama Win.

The annoying conservative agitator called Stewart a “comedic hack” and randomly brought up the inclusion of Cat Stevens (who supported a fatwa on Salman Rushdie) at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear hosted by Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

National Review‘s Kevin Williamson called Stewart a “half-bright late night television comedian” with a “vulgar and extensive audience,” telling the conservative agitator, “I’m sort of embarrassed with the country and myself that we have to sit here and talk about Jon Stewart.”

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan's Affirmative Action Ban!

The conservative wing upholds Michigan's ban on racial preferences.

I guess the Supreme Court decided that racism is over in the United States. There's no such thing as institutional racism in the country so says the six justices of the Supreme Court.

Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action was a case before the United States Supreme Court questioning whether a state violates the Fourteenth Amendment by enshrining a ban on race- and sex-based discrimination on public university admissions in its constitution.

This ruling effectively ends racial preferences in admissions in ALL institutions.

The Associated Press reports that the 6-2 (with Elena Kagan, not participating) decision came in a case brought by Michigan, where a voter-approved initiative banning affirmative action had been tied up in court for a decade.

Seven other states — California, Florida, Washington, Arizona, Nebraska, Oklahoma and New Hampshire — have similar bans. Now, others may seek to follow suit.

But the ruling, which was expected after the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the Michigan law, does not establish a precedent because the justices splintered in their reasoning.

It also doesn't jeopardize the wide use of racial preferences in many of the 42 states without bans. Such affirmative action programs were upheld, though subjected to increased scrutiny, in the high court's June ruling involving the University of Texas.

"This case is not about how the debate (over racial preferences) should be resolved," Justice Anthony Kennedy said in announcing the ruling. But to stop Michigan voters from making their own decision on affirmative action would be "an unprecedented restriction on a fundamental right held by all in common."

Chief Justice Roberts also filed a concurring opinion, arguing that the dissent contains a paradox: the governing board banning affirmative action is an exercise of policymaking authority, but others who reach that conclusion (presumed to mean the supporters of Proposal 2) do not take race seriously. He continues that racial preferences may actually do more harm than good, that they reinforce doubt about whether or not minorities belong.

Justice Scalia filed an opinion concurring in the judgment, joined by Justice Thomas. He examines what he calls a "frighteningly bizarre question:" Whether the Equal Protection Clause forbids what its text requires, answering by quoting his concurrence/dissent in Grutter: that "the Constitution [forbids] government discrimination on the basis of race, and state-provided education is no exception." He asserts that the people of Michigan adopted that understanding of the clause as their fundamental law, and that by adopting it, "they did not simultaneously offend it."

Justice Breyer filed an opinion concurring in the judgment, arguing that the case has nothing to do with reordering the political process, nor moving decision-making power from one level to another, but rather that university boards delegated admissions-related authority to unelected faculty and administration. He further argues that the same principle which supports the right of the people or their representatives to adopt affirmative action policies for the sake of inclusion also gives them the right to vote not to do so, as Michigan did.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor read a summary of her lengthy, 58-page dissent from the bench, in which Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined. She said the decision creates "a two-tiered system of political change" by requiring only race-based proposals to surmount the state Constitution, while all other proposals can go to school boards.
From left bottom to right top: Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, John Roberts (Chief Justice of Supreme Court), Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan.

As a result of the ruling, said Sotomayor, a product of affirmative action policies, minority enrollment will continue to decline at Michigan's public universities, just as it has in California and elsewhere. African-American enrollment dropped 33% at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor between 2006 and 2012, even as overall enrollment grew by 10%.

"The numbers do not lie," Sotomayor said.

Conservative satire to affirmative action.
The decision was splintered, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito joining Kennedy's opinion; Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas concurring in a separate opinion; and Justice Stephen Breyer, more often aligned with the court's liberal wing, concurring in yet another opinion.

Justice Elena Kagan recused herself from the case, presumably because of a conflict of interest from her time as U.S. solicitor general.

The opinion elicited a general reaction from the White House as President Obama headed to Asia. "The president has said that while he opposes quotas and thinks an emphasis on universal and not race-specific programs is good policy, considering race, along with other factors, can be appropriate in certain circumstances," press secretary Jay Carney said on Air Force One.

The decision in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action comes 10 years after two seminal Supreme Court rulings out of the University of Michigan. One struck down the undergraduate school's use of a point system that included race to guide admissions. The other upheld the law school's consideration of race among many other factors.

Immediately after the law school ruling, opponents of racial preferences set to work on a state constitutional amendment that said Michigan "shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin." Voters approved it by a 58%-42% margin in November 2006.

A federal district court upheld the initiative, but a sharply divided appeals court ruled that it violated minorities' equal protection rights under the Constitution.

The writing appeared to be on the wall at the Supreme Court, based on the influence of Roberts, an opponent of racial preferences who famously wrote in another case several years ago that "the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."

But in this case, Kennedy was the man to watch. He wrote the court's 1996 Romer v. Evans opinion striking down a Colorado referendum that banned local governments from enacting gay rights laws. Yet he had been less enthusiastic about the use of racial preferences in several recent cases.

Opponents of the Michigan law called it a form of "political restructuring" that stops minorities from seeking admission to a university the same way an athlete or legacy applicant can. Instead, they said in an argument that Sotomayor and Ginsburg endorsed, minorities had to change the state Constitution.

In striking down the ban, the 6th Circuit cited the Supreme Court's 1969 and 1982 rulings in cases from Akron and Seattle. In those cases, the high court struck down voter-approved initiatives that had blocked the cities' pro-minority housing and school busing policies.
Satire in real sense.
But Kennedy said the appeals court misread those earlier rulings. In the new Michigan case, he said, the paramount concern is the right of citizens to deliberate, debate and act — in this case, through a constitutional amendment.

The debate has practical as well as legal implications. In Michigan and California particularly, the bans have reduced black and Hispanic enrollments at elite universities and at law, medical and professional schools. The percentages of African Americans among entering freshmen at the University of California-Berkeley, UCLA and the University of Michigan were the lowest among the nation's top universities in 2011.

During oral arguments in October, Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch disputed the validity of those statistics. He said changes in 2010 that allowed students to check more than one racial box skewed the figures.

While Michigan's argument focused on equal rights for white and minority students, some conservative scholars go further. They say doing away with affirmative action gives minority students a better chance of succeeding at less competitive schools.

Nichelle McKnight Murder Tragedy!

In the city of Dayton, Ohio, the people are mourning the life of a 25 year old mother who was found in the Stillwater River after her disappearance was sparked by the police's apprehension of a man.

She was laid to rest last week and the question remains to why a young life would suffer a tragic fate?

This is gotten regional attention and a bit of national coverage. The young mother and her son were missing for nearly a month before the Dayton Police got a lead.

Her last posting on social networks were found.

This story hits close to home, literally.

The body of the young woman was discovered close to where I live.

Her body was retrieved from the Stillwater River with apparent gun shot wounds to the head.

I had worked at my job a few days ago and met a woman who knew the victim.

She said that Nichelle would ride the bus and take her son to the daycare. She was active military. Born in San Diego but raised in Dayton, Ohio, the young mother was trying to build a future.

She didn't get along with her family. Her family wasn't that concerned about her whereabouts until recently.

The woman said that even though Nichelle was a good mother and working from time to time, she was depressed. While facing depression, she ended up falling in love with a worthless scumbag.

That worthless scumbag would groom her into romance and use her. This would rile up the other woman.

Somehow these two clashed and there was a shooting. And now this woman and her son were missing.

According to leads, the child is dead but there's no actual location to where his body is. The Dayton Police and Montgomery County Sheriff found Nichelle's body.

The suspect is dead and the other woman is in county lock up for using Nichelle's credit cards.
Antwan Anderson once had a stay of residence in the iron college. He was released. The Dayton Police and FBI were looking for this scumbag after Nichelle McKnight turned up missing. This scumbag got into a shoot out with police and ended up putting a bullet to the head (or at least what the cops say).
Police found blood and the shoes McKnight was wearing when she was reported missing in the home’s basement, along with her driver’s license, bank cards, and the Social Security cards for both McKnight and Zaden, according to the affidavit.

The home on Birchwood is the residence of Tonisha Harris, 29, who was indicted Tuesday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on charges related to McKnight’s disappearance. The charges include six counts of receiving stolen property and one count each of theft by deception and misuse of a credit card, all fifth-degree felonies.

Dayton Police chief Richard Biehl said the body of McKnight's son, 4-year-old Zaden, has not been found. and the search for his remains continues.

Biehl said the police department, acting on a tip at 11:25 a.m. from an unknown caller who said he was an acquaintance of McKnight's boyfriend, Antwan Anderson, pointed the search to an area behind the Riverview Park Apartments, in the 4300 block of Riverside Drive, near Shoup Mill Road, in Harrison Twp.
Police: Mother, son may have been killed in basement photo
Tonisha Harris is in county lockup after she stole credit cards from the victim. She is the other woman in the relationship. The scumbag was dating two women at the time when all this jumped off.
McKnight's body was found behind the apartments along the river bank, on a steep embankment, Biehl said. She died of "intentional trauma," he said, echoing a preliminary ruling on the woman's cause of death. An autopsy is planned for Saturday morning.

Biehl said there is no evidence that the body of Zaden is in the area, but that the department would be issuing an alert for all area law enforcement jurisdictions located south along the river.

Dayton homicide detectives searched in the same area, along the Stillwater River Trail in the area of Needmore Road and Frederick Pike, for McKnight and her son. Police have been operating on the theory that the two were presumed dead.

McKnight reportedly discovered the thefts days before she disappeared on March 25. Her body was found April 11 near the banks of the Stillwater River.

According to a Dayton police incident report, Harris allegedly stole money from McKnight’s Chase bank account, and made purchases at area Walmarts using McKnight’s credit card. In total she allegedly stole nearly $3,000. The thefts were reportedly committed at the instruction of McKnight’s boyfriend, 26-year-old Antwan Anderson, whom police said was also in a relationship with Harris.

McKnight, an Air Force reservist, is having all her funeral expenses paid for by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars. Air Force officials said McKnight was assigned to the 445th Aeromedical Staging Squadron at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base from March 21, 2008 until March 16 this year, less than two weeks before she disappeared. McKnight received the Air Force commendation medal and was never deployed.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to family of  Nichelle McKnight.

For a midsize city, Dayton, Ohio has a very big problem. As a part of the rust belt, many Americans are unemployed here. With the demand for manufacturing, one would of have thought Dayton as a viable home for jobs.

Alas, it's not.

Dayton and many other cities in the rust belt are still having a little problem. The problem is the perception theory. Many citizens avoid the city because of the perception of crime.

Crime occurs everyday in America.

However, when the media makes a story about a crime, they blow it out of proportion.

Dayton is suffering from blight, White flight and segregation. Intentional or not, Dayton is already in the toilet when it comes to viable places to live. With the high allergy rates, eyesores of abandon homes and businesses, and now 11 known homicides in the first quarter of 2014, it's no wonder Dayton is losing population.

Dana Perino: Obama's A Jerk!

Loserville hires the former press secretary for George W. Bush. She and a few other agitators debate on the 5PM show The Five on Loserville. She's drawn controversy over some not so nice words about President Barack Obama. 

I wonder if former press secretary and now Loserville host Dana Perino has the balls to say all those nasty things to the face of President Barack Obama.

As the president announced that 8 million people signed up for the Affordable Care Act, the folks over at Loserville are piss pouring over the fact that it's working.

Of course the president did show some frustration with Republicans. After all they've tried to repeal the law over 50 times. The Republican state governors refuse to take the cost cutting incentives of the law. The conservative media continues to paint the law as the "end of days".

And the president's credibility is in the toilet after the "keep your doctor" theme.

Perino who once had a spot in the White House when George W. Bush was in charge, had the audacity to complain about the president's success.

"We're getting our makeup done and we're watching, and I'm like, you know what, the President's got some good news, got some good numbers, and then I just lost it, with anger. I just don't understand why he can't help himself to just lead and say I have some good news to share with you America - I'd like to take your questions. And just leave it at that. Then people wouldn't say, 'why is he such a jerk all the time?'"

Ongoing disrespect masquerading as news is what Chief Roger does on his network.

He and his merry band of half-truths and racial extremism continues onward to piss off the president, First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

The Five is a show that's been on for quite a while. It features a rotating panel of who discuss current political issues and pop culture.

A bunch of  "THOSE PEOPLE" talking shit about people of color, those who support the president and policies that could help all Americans.
