New RNC Chairman Michael Steele is GOP’s Next Sarah Palin

UPDATED 3/3/2009
Act II of the Michael Steele puppet show has moved him past Sarah Palin as the GOP’s ultimate puppet. 

So I thought the “hip-hop makeover” comment Steele made a couple weeks ago was embarrassing. Now Steele is cowering to the Limbaugh character who is apparently, as a radio talk show host, more respected by the GOP than their elected chairman. The irony in all this is the fact Steele’s puppet comments were made on CNN’s puppet news show, “D.L. Hughley Breaks The News” this past weekend. Steele first said Limbaugh is “an entertainer” and that some of his Read Entire Article

—It appears Ryff may have forced the shutdown of Tempepolicecloset.com. Read about this, and the stories of several Tempe residents which Ryff and his organization destroyed their lives. —

This thug organization, ran by Tempe Police Chief Tom Ryff, is devoid of all credibility and honor. The tapes you are about to listen to were obtained sometime in 1997 when Ryff was a lieutenant with the department.

Some, including Tempe’s City Manager and City Attorney, have questioned the timeliness and authenticity of the tapes. The aforementioned individuals

The saying goes “once is a chance, twice a coincidence, three times a pattern,” but the proverb needs amending when it comes to Tempe criminal cops, especially Officer Mike Wallace. As many of you know, a notice of claim was served on the City of Tempe and the Tempe Police Department on my behalf, which also named three specific officers: “Johnson”, Detective Jeff Loewenhagen, and Wallace. In the course of my research tonight, as a federal lawsuit will be filed against Tempe without settlement of the claim by mid-March, I found this … Read Entire Article

Death Penalty Immediately For Johannes Mehserle

UPDATED 3/3/2009: Oscar Grant’s Family Files $50 million Federal Lawsuit vs. Bay Area Transit, Terrorist Johannes Mehserle, et al.

The Bay Area Transit authority apparently let the 45 day window expire that they are afforded by law to pay the original $25 million notice of claim served on them by the Grant’s in January. The Grant’s should not settle for a penny less than the full $50 million. Thug cops and the cities that house them obviously need to see (and lose) a precedent setting, potentially bankrupting lawsuit like this to stop all the nationwide murders and malicious arrests which Read Entire Article

Rodney Smith, 23, appeared in Maricopa County Superior Court today. The State accuses Smith of recklessly opening fire at South Mountain Community College, in south Phoenix, on July 24, 2008.

Defense attorney Marci Kratter argued before Superior Court Justice Cari Harrison, to modify Smith’s release conditions further. Smith was originally being held in Maricopa County Jail on a $200,000 cash bond before Kratter successfully argued the bond was excessive back on October 22. The bond was lowered to $16,000 and Smith has been on house arrest with an ankle monitor since his release Read Entire Article

Day 38: More Douche-Bag Guards, Bad News from Public Defender, and the Countdown Commences

This day corresponds with Thursday, August 28, 2008.

Jesus Christ, I swear these people are angry eunuchs or just pissed at the world of “black people” because of Obama, Michael Jordan, and whomever else is more successful than they are. A few seconds ago, this fool came banging on the window of this cell (keep in mind, its like 4 a.m. and I was sleeping relatively soundly) and said, “turn your bracelet around! I can’t see your picture on it!” He was referring to that pink thing I had to wear around my wrist virtually … Read Entire Article

Day 37: Leonard Freed, Letter for the Rev’s Judge, and More Jail Terminology

This day corresponds with Wednesday, August 27, 2008.

Another day of consciousness in here, another day of empty existence. It was nice to see Leonard walk out of here to freedom a few minutes ago, but who knows what may happen to him now. He has no where to go/stay, no money, and I highly doubt we could fill out a job application by himself. They had to let him go by law, even though they unlawfully held him for an extra week. His parole, I think, is from his Texas prison time. He violated … Read Entire Article

Day 36: Paula Abdul Dream, Farewell Letters, and My Obituary

by Brian A. Wilkins

1/22/09

This day corresponds with Tuesday, August 26, 2008.

Another day, another incidence of me waking up in this place. I just woke up in the middle of a dream with Paula Abdul in it. I asked her out on a date and she said yes. What was really funny is when I asked her if she and Ryan Seacrest ever dated? She said, “no, I just have sex with him!” Then she said she hated Ringo Starr; I wasn’t even sure where that came from. Right when she started fixing the collar on my shirt … Read Entire Article
