JUST ANOTHER DAY ON PLANET EARTH: DemocracyNow! Headlines For Thursday, October 13, 2016! Features Include Donald Trump, President Obama, USA In Yemen, Wells Fargo CEO (John Stumpf), Russia In Syria, Honduras’ 2 Assassination Attempts, Another Murdered Transsexual In Cleveland, Oregon Arrests 10 BLM Activists After Pepper Spraying Them 1st, Iowa Lockup, North Dakota Return & On The Brighter Side, Bob Dylan Wins 2016 Nobel Prize In Literature!

And an update on our coverage of the Dakota Access pipeline and the resistance to it: Democracy Now! will be heading back to North Dakota to continue our coverage of the standoff at Standing Rock. As has been reported here and elsewhere, as a result of Democracy Now!’s reporting over Labor Day weekend last month, Amy Goodman was charged by the state of North Dakota with criminal trespass. A warrant was issued for her arrest on September 8—five days after we released video of the Dakota Access pipeline company’s security guards physically assaulting nonviolent, mostly Native American land protectors, pepper-spraying them and unleashing attack dogs, one of which was shown with blood dripping from its nose and mouth.

Protester: “These people are just threatening all of us with these dogs. And she, that woman over there, she was charging, and it bit somebody right in the face.”

Amy Goodman: “The dog has blood in its nose and its mouth.”

Protester: “And she’s still standing here threatening us.”

Amy Goodman: “Why are you letting their—her dog go after the protesters? It’s covered in blood!”

Goodman will be turning herself in to authorities at the Morton County jail in North Dakota on Monday morning at 8 a.m. North Dakota time and intends to vigorously fight this charge as she sees it as a direct attack on the First Amendment, freedom of the press? and the public’s right to know.

Tim Scott, ONLY BLACK GOP SENATOR, From South Carolina Stopped By Police 7-Times In 1-Year BECAUSE HE’S BLACK! If You STILL DON’T BELIEVE a) Stop & Frisk and b) Racial Profiling Are Both Unjust, Unconstitutional & Unworkable, You Are A Certifiable BIGOT! Case Closed! TIM SCOTT, (R) SENATOR OF SOUTH CAROLINA: “In the course of one year, I`ve been stopped seven times by a law enforcement officer. Not four, not five, not six, but seven times. Was I speeding sometimes? Sure! But the vast majority of the time I was pulled over for nothing more than driving a new car in the wrong neighborhood or some other reason just as trivial.” Tabacco: BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE AS USUAL – MSM Focuses On Police Training – WRONG! The PRIMARY FOCUS Must Be On HIRING, NOT TRAINING! Psychological Testing Is Already Available! It Makes No Difference How Much Or How Good Training Is For Racist Cops; Training Won’t Change Them!

Tabacco: I would love to hear Bill Maher (in my presence and in front of the cameras of course), who approves of Racial Profiling, attempt to explain and excuse this particular Abomination!

Maher’s opinion of RACIAL PROFILING would certainly be entirely different if it were used to Pester & Harass men of Jewish or partial-Jewish lineage!

“EVERY MAN KNOWS THAT RACIAL PROFILING IS WRONG FOR HIM!” – Tabacco (Paraphrasing Frederick Douglass on subject of Slavery)

PS HYPOCRISY REPORT: Have you noticed that the Don (Trump to be specific) is Pro-NRA/Pro-Gun EXCEPT when HE is on the scene. Then PERMISSIVENESS is OUT-THE-WINDOW!

Ohio permits guns on its streets, but the Trump Republicans will violate Ohio Law in the area surrounding the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio!

And Trump evicts Protestors from Public Events, who disapprove of him (even Republicans)! Democracy? Well, Folks, it’s the 1930s and guess who is running for Führer in Germany – err America! Continue reading

Cleveland, Ohio, Agrees To Limits On POLICE FORCE, Federal Oversight! Officers Now Barred From Firing Warning Shots Into The Air, Pistol Whipping Suspects, Can No Longer Use Force Against Individuals Who Talk Back Or Flee! These “New” Rules Come About As Result Of Deal Between Cleveland & Federal Government. Tabacco’s Question Is This: “Why Haven’t These Rules Been In Force In Every Police District Throughout The 50 From The Beginning Plus A Few More, Not Covered By This Agreement? For Example, ‘Why Is It Always People Of Color, Who Are Executed By Police Officers, Never Whites?”

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson: “I want to say that this is really a defining moment for the city of Cleveland and for the citizens of the city of Cleveland. It will define who we are as a people and who we are as a city. Over the last several days, the general peaceful response to the Officer Brelo verdict has reinforced my belief that Cleveland is a community where peaceful demonstrations and dialogue will and can provide for change and will make a lasting difference for the people of the city of Cleveland.” Continue reading
