THE END DOES NOT ALWAYS JUSTIFY THE MEANS; legitimizing murder of police officers while ignoring the damning facts in that store as that attendant was robbed and beaten can never justify this indiscriminate bloodlust!
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
“This is no longer the backlash that follows when a community made up of minorities of color comes together to decry the death of one of their own by the hand of one police officer. Attempts to apprehend him after robbing and beating a store clerk over a bottle of liquor. That which has been manifested all over America leading to further looting, ravaging of communities, burning, and shooting on both sides of these uprisings. Has now become a wide spread civil unrest with no real agenda, purpose, or aim! Fueled by media hungry for footage of violence, rampage, and bloodshed.
Unfortunately what this uprising, the media, and some politicians have created is to further the legitimization of the open killing of police officers.
While, the details of what had happened in that place of business, as that attendant was beaten and robbed -in the face- of all the video footage. Should of shown to some Americans that despite what entailed across town in the middle of that street. Between one man who refused to obey that officers orders -obviously- because he knew what he had done and what was about to happen to him. He made his choice to act in contrary to the behavior of someone who is being questioned. Because, he meets the description of someone who has just beaten and robbed a store clerk.
He was under the influence, he’d obviously no doubt drunk most of that bottle. Because it was never found unopened, and he belligerently chose to go up against an officer and his one line of defense. There is obviously more that could of been taken into account here. Including, the correct procedure that should of been taken between local, state, and federal authorities to get to the bottom of who was more responsible in this situation? Which, appears to have been blurred by the rolling video coverage of the maddening chanting for blood coming from the crowds!
Back over some decades ago a similar widespread backlash over purported police brutality came about after bloodless on both sides between communities and police authorities. After the burning smoke from the rolling video footage and the street anger subsided from the rampage, violence, and bloodlust. It was decided that police needed acute training in etiquette and proper treatment of community members as they discharged their duties in minority areas of color. Police were ordered to live within a certain distance of these communities in order to get them to become further aware of the sensitivities within these areas.” JRH-2015 NDMH
“After writing the above article I decided to do a net search on police re-training and situations that led to those decisions, Below is part and partial of what I found on my search. After a brief look over of the document one can take away that government has attempted to address the issues on both sides of the line. Perhaps there is more to be learned when we get to the part in our research that leads us to the why or where has this 1999 effort come to?” JRH-2015 NDMH

NATIONAL POLICE TRAINING COMMISSION ACT OF 1999
“In our bill, we propose solutions designed to bolster the confidence the citizens have in their police and to provide effective training for police officers involved in serving and protecting the community in these increasingly difficult times.
The bill also provides for examining those occasions on which the police and citizens interact and the role that these events play and the use of force issues, including policing strategies, hiring, recruiting practices, disciplinary and oversight policies, the use of weapons, and of non-lethal force technologies, such as pepper sprays, arrests, searches, seizures, verbal communication, vehicle use, and community relations.
Page 10 PREV PAGE TOP OF DOC
The bill identifies four of the larger and more diverse metropolitan police departments to receive initial grant monies and to initiate training programs designed to enhance existing ongoing training. These larger metropolitan police departments have been selected as test cases or pilot programs, not because they have particular issues related to the use of force but in recognition that use of force issues exist in all police departments, and these four departments tend to experience a wider range of police-citizen contacts, use of force, and diversity issues. In addition, most of these departments have agreed to open their policies and practices to the study commission created as a part of the bill for the purpose of identifying effective training programs that will benefit all police departments nationwide.
The commission established in this legislation is bipartisan and will study these department’s training, police strategies, and programs with an eye toward providing Congress with recommendations to promote effective law enforcement practices and to fostering better relations between the police and citizens. The commission will make recommendations to Congress as to any future role Congress and the Federal Government should have in these areas.
In this way, we hope to provide solutions designed to remedy any breakdown in trust and confidence citizens have with their police department, fostering awareness on the part of citizens about the policing functions and responsibilities, while simultaneously creating better trained and more effective policing to serve and protect our communities.
This proposal has the support of city mayors, community leaders, police chiefs, and the rank and file police officers. Each have provided input into the contents of the bill and the composition of the commission. We believe this bill takes the necessary step in the direction of solving the problems that are eroding the trust and confidence between police and the communities. If all in Congress and the administration can avoid the politicization of this issue and act with the same resolve and integrity demonstrated by Congressman Serrano, we can make the solutions in the bill a reality by this summer.

MY REMARKS TO OBAMA’S SPEECH ON SELMA BRIDGE
By John R Hernanddez@NDMH-2015

THE UNDERPINNING CONVICTION HAS AND WILL ALWAYS BE -HATRED- OF OTHERS!
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
“…-faith is playing an overarching reality-…”
“The real question you need to ask yourself is. How is it possible that we or anyone in the so-called global community of civilized people claiming to be normal.? Can stand by idly as people of questionable mental capacity indiscriminately behead one Christian or Jew after another and you can almost hear a pin drop in the audience of our so-called Global Community? Today, not so unlike the days of the Hitler racial cleansing pandemic; terrorist Islamic extremists are beheading Christians, Jews, and people of all races.
Because of, the burning hatred for those who won’t submit to their tyrannical madness and inhumane way of life. But, it isn’t just only submission sought here.This burning hatred festering well over a millennia has been fed by the hatred of Christians. Because of their faith and the wars that have raged on for well over a milineum! And so, when you claim to stand up to decry your idealist assumptions about human rights, and yet, deny the Genocide and Holocaust of over 6 million Jewish victims of Nazi atrocities. You, not only expose your antisemitic behavior -but you- prove to the world the burning flaws behind your hypocritical personality!” JRH-2015 NDMH
1). “There were about 8 to 10 million Jews in the territories controlled directly or indirectly by the Nazis (the uncertainty arises from the lack of knowledge about how many Jews there were in the Soviet Union). The six million killed in the Holocaust thus represent 60 to 75 percent of these Jews. Of Poland’s 3.3 million Jews, over 90 percent were killed.”http://www.numberof.net/number-of-jews-killed-in-the-holoc…/

“Is it possible to imagine this happening in those days as the world looked on? Can you further imagine that today the same hatred burns in the hearts and minds who behead Christians and Jews because of their faith and or race? The one critical outstanding element in today’s genocide -not so unlike- to the Nazi scourge. Is that -faith is playing an overarching reality- in those who are committing the most vicious present day wholesale acts of wanton murder!” JRH-2015 NDMH

ISIS HANGS 25 AT IRAQI CITY ENTRANCE AS CHILD PARADES THE HEAD OF ONE THROUGH STREETS

“A cult of death not too unlike that of the heinous Fascist’s bloodlust. If the global community would follow the lead of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el-Sisi. Who has outlawed the radical Muslim Brotherhood and is now about to clamp down on thousands of Mosques. In order to put a stop to all the radicalization and incitement coming out of many of them! It would be a better world to live in. But, unfortunately the global community has a yellow streak running down its back.

THE BEST THING EGYPT COULD OF DONE, IT HAS DONE!
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
“Start by outlawing extremist preachers and mosques where unrest and hatred of others is fomented. Below is an excerpt from the news account from Egypt concerning latest moves to squelch terrorist Islamic extremism. May the souls of all Christians, Jews, Egyptians, Jordanians, Africans, and all other innocent victims crucified, shot, burned alive, and or beheaded by Extremist Islamic terrorists rest in peace now!”JRH-2015 NDMH
“Other mosques throughout the country must secure permits in order to keep their doors open and any Muslim leader proven to deliver political messages will be prohibited from preaching in Egypt. A number of new permits – approximately 400 – have since been distributed to imams, though they will remain under close scrutiny as Egypt attempts to address the violence often nurtured by radicalized leaders. These imams will be subject to oversight by a Ministry of Religious Endowments committee and will be forced to take an oath denouncing any such extremist messages. Should the ministry find a leader in violation of this agreement, its agents are authorized to revoke his or her permit and potentially pursue legal action.” Read more at http://www.westernjournalism.com/egypt-shut-27000-mosques…/…
STUDENT LOAN DEBT CRISIS NEEDS EXPANSION OF FORGIVENESS CHOICES
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
“The student loan debt crisis has reached epidemic levels (over 40 million not counting those who have gone underground or committed suicide because of it). Very few individuals and or -if any- excepting Alan Collinge and some others are at the forefront in trying to get this issue out to the public and reforming its present day conditions. In the forefront of his fight on this issue is his support for inclusion of student loan debt into bankruptcy petitions. We all need to support individuals and organizations like his. If we want to see justice and equity in a system that has become burdensome, mentally and physically crippling to the lives of so many men and women. Who once believed that a loan was the way to get that much needed education.
Yet, later on they found out that the costs don’t always reflect the possibilities and or opportunities available in today’s employment scheme. One example is where you don’t always have to be the best educated to get the job. Companies and institutions in many cases will simply hire part timers and or under-qualified individuals and train them as they go to forego having to pay for graduates who are often seeking better wages than those afforded the less qualified choices that most companies will usually make. Its cheaper and easier for a company to go the easy way out. Companies don’t owe colleges or the Dept of Ed a dang thing.
However in my opinion It’s also time to expand the choices available in Student Loan Forgiveness to those that resonate with today’s students and ex-students. We need to provide more choices for individuals to clear their accounts or parts of their accounts. With additional inclusions of volunteer programs such as in; hospitals both (veteran and public), to rehabilitation service providers, blind and physically handicapped hospices, schools and private institutes of higher learning (to include organizations such as Boys and Girls clubs of America, 4-H, as well as all other privately and publicly funded organizations),\.
Everywhere in all areas of life volunteers are needed to assist others, groups, companies, government institutions and private entities. Why not put more effort into expanding possibilities where men and women in debt may place their energy, time, and creativity towards helping others. There are a myriad of places and opportunities where an individual and individuals may be able to put in some time. either being physically present or via the internet. Where they can get credit for time spent on projects that can be certified towards their getting the needed lowering or termination of their debts to the US Department of Education and others. But of course this next suggestion is going to get about as many applauds as Jimmy Carter getting the citizen of the year award. In biblical times we had the Year of Jubilee where debts were forgiven!” JRH-2015 NDMH
NETANYAHU TODAY’S CHURCHILL
“Our Churchill for our time!” JRH-2015 NDMH
How can the global community stand by idly as antisemitism and anti-Christian hatred burns in the hearts of terrorist Islamic murderers?
“Out of office and politically “in the wilderness” during the 1930s, Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10 May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His steadfast refusal to consider surrender helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult early days of the war when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. Churchill was particularly noted for his speeches and radio broadcasts, which helped inspire the British people. He led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured.” SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill
WHEN YOU INSULT AND DENOUNCE ISRAEL YOU INSULT AND DENOUNCE ALMIGHTY GOD!
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
-It’s time to pray fervently for these clowns before they bring the entire anger of almighty God upon us all- JRH/NDMH
“Between Pelosi, Obama, Biden, Kerry, pope Francis, Jimmy Carter, Hillary Clinton and the rest of those who are so contemptible to stand before God Almighty and denounce Israel’s Prime Minister. It is all very clear now what their plans are and have been for their counterparts in the Middle East. They have now shown their true face and who they stand with in the UN. But, they will not be victorious -because- as we all know that God Almighty will curse them for cursing Israel.
They will lose everything; face, reputation, coming elections, their plans to support our enemies. All will crumble before their eyes! You don’t have to be intelligent to do what the US has done. To offer Iran such a deal that would allow them to keep the nuclear centrifuges thereby allowing them to continue on their path to a nuclear bomb. Unabated and to build more ICBM’S, to erase all sanctions, and to disregard all its threats about nuclear annihilation of Israel and America; whom they call the Great Satan.
Where is the intelligence in this group of lunatics which would pretend their is no Hezbollah parked just outside of Israel ready to start sending in rockets. Hamas waiting to invade, Iran supporting all terrorist efforts in the Middle East. You don’t have to be stupid to support Iran and the rest of their terrorist clowns. Some of which have been allowed to penetrate the highest levels of the same Homeland Security apparatus whose continued existence has been in challenge as of late.
It’s these clowns who want the American people to believe that Israel and Netanyahu are Wrong and they and Iran are right. This is whose side they are on. These clowns who denounce Israel as an occupier sound like Extremist Muslims. They are not intelligent enough to understand that most Americans and Israeli’s and many of our global neighbors are aware of Christianity’s struggles with Radical Islam dating back hundreds of years.
It’s all in the history books! So ISIS-L is nothing new and they are Muslims. And the fight is against Extremist Islam which still believes that it can conquer the world once again as it believed it back then. It’s all in the history books and easily searched. So it is nothing new to us. It is not an insult to our intelligence to tell us what we already know. But, what Netanyahu made clear by his presence here is that this administration is behind one of this nation’s worst foreign policy agreements.
Which, will surely bring about apocalyptic and dire results; not just for the Middle East but, the world. What the Prime Minister has done is open up the can of worms right in front of the American people for them to decide and to speak out against this mutiny. This arrangement with Iran is an insult to the American people and the people of the world. So it doesn’t come as any great surprise to see and hear this merry band of misfits complaining once again. Since they have been running around denouncing Israel while, trying to make it look like their motives are right!” JRH-2015 NDMH

JOURNALIST POT SMOKERS AT LESSER MEDIA OUTLETS SUPPORTING ITS LEGALIZATION; A NO-BRAINER
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
-but, when these journalists bring in the race baiting issue, or the throwing out of what they call the old conventional wisdom and tell us that gay marriage, pot legalization are social justice issues. That we are lying to our children about marijuana. Freedom of speech dictates, that this demands an open door to my comments.- JRH-NDMH/2015
Saying that Marijuana should be legalized because a journalist calls it a ‘useless old conventional wisdom’ is as intelligent a statement as. The Obama administration calling for the removal of sanctions against Iran because it has never been really proven they are bad guys! Furthermore, disrespecting Pat Robertson by saying he is rambling incoherently about God’s will. Only shows a clear disdain for God and Christianity. Which Journalists who stand by their ethical code would find it best to distance themselves from forming their own opinionated comments. In the case of Evangelist Pat Robertson, he is someone in the Christian community who is well respected and well knowledgeable on what God wants and does not want!
Not everything that looks and sounds good is worth trying. That includes homosexuality, drugs, and even alcohol! Homosexuality I never tried. Since, it is obvious that it is not my choice of lifestyle, and yes my choices are led by my brand of faith, Christianity. As for pot and alcohol I won’t expand here, what led to try a cup running over of both. Suffice it to say that I can speak from experience. Its not just that Marijuana and alcohol both lead to abuse. But, that their use has been delineated to lead to abuse, crime, and disruptive behavior and further abuse of other drugs. With far worst results to both users, ones community, and family members.
It is even more absurd to compare homosexuals seeking so-called social justice by pushing for laws that would legalize a man marrying another man or a woman marrying another woman (she forgot to bunch this into the conventional wisdom cart). There was a time when they could easily go to Nevada for example and walk into one of those marriage mills and be done with it. But, no that’s not enough for them. They want complete and full acceptance of their rights to a traditional marriage.
Replete with all the bells and whistles included in the such. Legitimizing this abominable way of life would also help to legitimize its acceptance in the hearts and minds of billions of school age children throughout the world. After all they’ve already helped to place their stamp of approval in the hearts and minds of some government officials as to the question of homosexuality being a naturally acceptable birth trait!
Calling pot or even alcohol recreational drugs are a farce. The cry today is to legalize and regulate Marijuana. But, why legalize a drug that can easily be grown in your backyard and consumed i the leisure of your home anyway? So it would seem that the potheads are supporting the pot dealers who want it legalized so that they can continue to make money feeding it to the American people. While, they absorb the millions law enforcement authorities would stand to make if Pot is legalized.
But, the bigger picture is as so many jugheads seem to think. That Marijuana is a faultless recreational drug that does not lead to the use of other drugs. In my opinion and this is my opinion. Marijuana should not be legalized for any purpose other than medicinal use and that under the strictest scrutiny of a certified mentally capable audited doctor of medicine. It should not be sold over the counter like candy to children.
Their deeper issues with the use of Marijuana that are being suppressed by the media which I won’t go into details here just yet. Suffice it to say that based on my experience Marijuana is a crossing point both to and from other drugs being abused and ultimately leading to causing a vast majority of accidents, crimes of violence and even murder. Those who oppose Marijuana legalization are shuffled into those on the wrong side of so-called Culture War scenario. If you are a father or mother who wants to protect your children from drug use you are called names and ridiculed.
Supporting your personal rights to defend your children is now become taboo while letting it all hang out and cutting lose has become the thing to do.
While innocent children pick up on these sinister trends. Those who have no respect for the rights of others, their children, or their opinions could care less what others think as long as they get what they want! And to say we have been ‘lying to our children’ about drugs mainly pot. I guess is to say that we have no right to teach our children right from wrong. A parent has that right and no one -especially one with dubious personal beliefs- should attempt to train up someone else’s child on. And to equally compare this argument with the use of racial overtones is as ludicrous as this whole subject is!” JRH-2015 NDMH
Why pot legalization is also a fight for social justice
By Emily L. Hauser/The Week.Com/articles
“As is generally true with culture-war issues, however, the movement toward sensible policy is slow and halting. We get dueling headlines like these, noted in The Washington Post: “Colorado sold 17 tons of retail marijuana in first legal year” vs. “Life in prison for selling $20 of weed.” We get people like Pat Robertson rambling incoherently about God’s will and enslavement to vegetables. We discover officials who think that if we raise marijuana legally, bunnies will become addicts. All this even as millions of Americans drop their allegiance to the old conventional wisdom — not least, Washington, D.C., Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “All those [marijuana] arrests do is make people hate us,” she said recently. “Marijuana smokers are not going to attack and kill a cop… Alcohol is a much bigger problem.”But for many on the pro-legalization side, there appears to be an important difference between weed and, say, marriage equality. One is a long-standing struggle for social justice; the other is just silly policy.The immediate effect of this silly policy, however, has been that between bad science, business interests, fear-mongering, and ineptitude, we’ve been lying to our children and each other about pot for decades. And beyond that is the sheer racism involved.”
Seeking to Legalize pot may seem to be what Liberals do best. After all the loses from the drain on profits from the tobacco limitations. Still at $40 bucks a carton they cannot say they are not getting a good bang for the bucks from big tobacco.
WHY DOES ALL THIS SEEM SO FISHY TO ME? Obama drops Cuban sanctions, seeks world players for dropping Iran sanctions, and thinks Israel will just sit back and wag its tail!
By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015
“The stage is being set by Obama and others. Which could lead to nuclear war in the Middle East. As Israel will soon make a strategic decision to defend its future. After all, some of us know that whether they are Republican or Democrats, they are going to screw up something. Obama offering to drop all sanctions against Iran in return for what? I don’t know how much Iran offered Obama but, something stinks between those two. And now it appears that it could be quite a few more players involved in this coupe-d’etat against Israel. One week after Netanyahu spoke to Congress and the American people, and one month after Obama declared restoration of all relations with the Communist Island of Cuba.
Where, a ship has now been apprehended delivering weapons and armaments to it. I refuse to believe that China, Great Britain, France, Germany and any other countries would ever do such an unconscionable deed as to throw Israel under the bus! I have -however- flushed down the toilet any credibility I had for this poor excuse of an administration. No wonder Obama told Iran and others -not to worry- Netanyahu had not brought anything new to Congress on his previous speech before them.
‘Nothing New’ were -code words- meant for Iran and its secret supporters here and abroad. That it was business as usual and the plans were to continue as proposed. This is why today we hear of the proposed multilateral disengagement of full sanctions against Iran days ahead of deadlines. This administration is proceeding with its promise to Iran, the worlds deadliest terrorist country.
To continue supporting and arming Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, and all other global terrorist organizations. To continue to produce ICBM missiles and further expand its already bulging nuclear processes. Why, the Obama administration is allowing for the removal of all the checkpoints and latches put into place to stop Iran from expanding its arsenals and support of terrorists is unconscionable! No doubt that this is setting the stage for unilateral actions by Israel to defend its nation against its most deadly enemy of all, as it should!” JRH-2015 NDMH

Strap on a bomb jacket and blow your self up in some market where the children of Arabs alongside Jews are playing innocently. Jesus said of the little children. Of these is the Kingdom of God! He also said whenever you do this to the least of these you have done it unto me. Jesus asked Paul, why are you persecuting me? When you teach a child to go out and blow themselves up among other little children or go and behead them.
You are not doing the will of God but of Satan the Devil. When you allow the men of your tribe to bring home little girls they have taken as wives. How is this doing the will of Almighty God? Even when you think evil of another the word of God says you are a murderer. Yes, even Christ was angered as He turned the tables of the money changers in the house of God. But you cannot let anger rule your life. Would you want someone to come into your fathers home and do what is not right in his eyes?
So you must not let evil enter into your heart and change the holiness of that sacred space. To Jesus this is sacred space not to be defiled by the dirty hands or false words of man. To God you must be holy. Shedding the innocent blood of children or anyone else is not a holy thing to do. Taking children captive to be raped, tortured, or beheaded is not condoned(to go and do it) by Almighty God, nor is it a holy thing acceptable(allowed) by Him.” JRH-2015 NDMH The following video graphic is used for illustration purposes only.
