GMW Handbook for 2020

We’re Being Manipulated

The first case of COVID-19 in the US which was reported on January 22, 2020, since then, the country has reported 3,260,500 cases and 134,581 deaths.

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), If we want real change across America, while doing all we can to save our children, families, and country, we must first KEEP THEM ALIVE. We must Get our priorities in order. Each of us is responsible for doing our part, and it starts in each of our homes. We must lead by example: wear a mask; practice social distancing; wash hands often; get tested depending on your movement or travel; avoid crowds; and last, but not least, get to the voting polls on November 3, 2020.

Me, My Grands and Great-grands

All of my grandchildren, from 1 year to 17 years, have been on serious lock down over the past 5 months, and their parents are riding shotgun over them. As I have traveled from state to state, while visiting my sister, brothers and other family members during their health challenges, I followed safety protocols for the protection of myself and others by wearing face masks, gloves and using hand-sanitizer, alcohol sprays, and Lysol. Upon returning home, I always get a Covid-test and quarantine before going around my family or others. I believe we can control this virus if we do our part and listen to updates given by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) health departments, mayors, and the governor.

GMW, America will never be the same again because we all now see the things we have in common are much greater than all the differences. We must make sure that we, along with our children, learn American History—the good, the bad and the ugly. There are no statues of Hitler in Germany because they know the true story. Hitler was a brutal leader who killed more than 10 million people to create a “pure” German society, which resulted in the ruin of Germany at the end of World War II. Throughout America’s educational systems and society in general, it is time for a serious, honest, and complete examination of our history for accuracy and revision.

George Floyd was the sacrificial lamb to wake up America and the world. Americans in all 50 states are protesting the great injustices that have been allowed to exist in this country. While the demonstrations have put focus on our problems, we have to legislate solutions. GMW, we are responsible for making sure our states are addressing problems individually and pursue changes and justice at the national level. We must keep the majority in the House of Representatives, achieve a majority in the Senate, and win the White House in November 2020. We need a majority in the House and Senate to unite America. We must seriously start holding the people we choose to represent us accountable and demand that they do their jobs, or we must make them one-term by voting to remove them from office. Ladies, we MUST realize the value of our power, especially OUR VOTE. Our country must have credible leadership which reflects the entire America landscape – white, black, brown, red, and yellow, without respect to gender or religion.

In the comingv months, we can support and help our next President (Joe Biden) by maintaining a focus on the dying American Middle Class and the issues brought forth in The Poor People’s Campaign, as conducted by Rev. William Barber. The platform demands that we dispel the notion that systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy hurt only a small segment of our society. More than 40,600,000 Americans subsist below the poverty line; this report additionally shows that there are close to 140 million people dealing with some combination of these crises every day. Nearly half of our population cannot afford a $400 emergency, which presents a structural crisis of national proportion that ties poverty to things like healthcare and housing. The devastation cuts across race, gender, age, and geography. It has carved a dangerous and deepening moral chasm in America and inflicts a tragic loss of purpose, even among the affluent. Mr. Biden has to address these issues. He needs our votes to win.

This we Pray in the Name of Jesus…Amen?

America’s Injustice In Living Color

GMW nationally our children, the millennials have joined forces across the country protesting police brutality On our sons and daughters of color. We have been Protesting police brutality on our people of color for generations. 

George Floyd Living His Life

On Monday May 25th 2020, America and the world witness the lynching of 46 years George Floyd, by 4 White MPO. Their immediate punishment was being fired. Today May 29th those officers still have not been arrested or charged. But a CNN  Black Reporter was arrested, while his White Partner a small distance away, was not arrested. MPD’s Racism is blatant, and they are not unique. 

George Floyd Losing His Life

Across our country, our Millennials black and white are joining forces. indicating they have had enough, our President Mr. Trump, is instructing our military and police to start shooting as soon as there is looting. GMW, none of us Condone violence in any form,but our justice system in America has to apply to our children of color, the same as they treat my white sons & daughters. Example: Mohamed Noor, who is black, Somali and Muslim,became the first Minnesota police officer convicted of murder in an on-duty killing, of Justine Ruszczyk, who was white.

Officer Noor and his partner were in their squad car in an alley investigating when Ms. Ruszczyk approach. Officer Noor said he heard a bang and fired one shot from the passenger seat when Justine appeared at the driver’s window, he feared for their life. During cross-examination assistant county attorney, Amy Sweasy asked Mr. Noor,”Her blonde hair, and pink T-shirt and all, that was a threat to you. It’s assumed, Black Officers should have no fear? And, feel no fear when white people show-up, as is the case of Mr. George Floyd.

Now unfortunately, our children are protesting across the country because (4) white racist, un-empathetic white officers killed a man in handcuffs. They should have been arrested and let justice prevail. Our President is behaving like a spoil Bret with Twitter, while COVID-19 has killed over 100,000 Americans with 1.7m tested positive, he’ simply deflecting.  Our millennials across the country is protesting the 400 years of injustice, and Mr. Trump wants to Invoke the 1960 southern policy of when looting starts shooting begins. 

ST. Paul Minnesota Burning

Our children destroyed the police department in St.Paul last nite, and placed themselves in great danger, that we don’t condone, but they’re still alive and some are in jail, where those 4 officers should be! George Floyd is just the Tip-of the Ice-berg. It’s time white police-brutality against black people has to change.  GMW all of us has to be just as outrage regarding injustice as our children, if we do our part, they won’t have to use their methods. I’m so glad our children has join forces, because our police officers, think nothing of shooting my children, but will choose a different method when it comes to those who looks like them. 

In all the madness and the pandemic crisis, America and the world is facing, we will hold on to Jeremiah 29:11.

I’ve been checking news around the world and they are all focus on America. Plus the police in Minneapolis are still blatantly lying, they said they release Omar, the Black Reporter, after they discover he was with the media. He was covering the news with a microphone in his hand, while showing them his credentials. It appears they have become so comfortable in their racist behavior, until they forget, their behavior is caught on cameras, live and in color,  as it was for Amy Cooper, in Central Park, The same for Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.  Even though the Georgia police department, suppressed the film in their Effort to cover-up the killing of Mr. Arbery.

Ahmaud Arbery killed for no reason except, Racism

With all of the advocacy for justice, peace and change, nothing has happen, maybe after a police station has been burned. We will all start paying attention. From the White House to the Outhouse. GMW, we will continue to pray for justice, peace, and empathy, in Jesus’s name, we pray. Amen.

What’s Mitch McConnell And The GOP Trying To Hide

We All Know What A Trial Looks Like, And This Is Not It:

Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell: GMW needs to hear the facts.

We will not raise our families under a: Hitler Mentality brewing slavery conditions.

Carl Bernstein has given Mitch McConnell a new nickname, “Midnight  Mitch,” because he’s embracing a coverup that is there for all to see. It’s about preventing information from becoming-known-and-seen by an American public.

He also noted, ‘in the impeachment of Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton there had been no problem about knowing the truth or the facts.

Present the facts Mitch, and let the defense, defend. 

Mitch McConnell, what are you so afraid of, that placed a “Price Tag”  on your CHARACTER and SOUL, what a Price.

While  Mitch McConnell is putting a price tag on his Soul, President Trump is preparing to divert an additional $7.2 billion in Pentagon funding for border wall construction this year, five times what Congress authorized him to spend on the project in the 2020 budget.

If Mr. Trump lied about making the Mexicans build his expensive wall, what else is he lying about?

I think GMW, “that small segment of the population, that makes up the base of Trumps Following, has been so devastated by having a Black President until, they will except any White man, as president, even if he couldn’t spell his name.”
Which is the real reason they are so willing to let Trump get away with things, they would killed Barack for doing.

If this is not true, then I’m asking God to please have my nose dragging the ground by the next time you see me!!!

The 2022 Gubernatorial Race: Alabama and Iowa

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), In Iowa and Alabama, lets get registered to vote, and be ready to let your vote speak for you, November 8th.

There are 36 Gubernatorial seats up for midterm election. We need to come out of the midterm elections with 25 or more  blue Governors Seats, and 25 or more of the 36 Senate Seats. So, we can finally get a Senate that functions, and get some work done. GMW, we are voting for the rights of our daughters the future of democracy, and the constitutional right to the pursuit liberty and justice for all.

Republicans are defending 20 gubernatorial, and Democrats are defending 16 seats. However, Some prognosticators feels this will be a better cycle for GOP: The political winds are at their backs. But GMW we have the votes. 

(R) Kay Ives,

Ladies we turn Va. blue 2016. Ga., blue in 2020, and put Biden in the Oval Office.

Alabama: Now let’s focus on the governor’s races; starting with Alabama Republican  incumbent: Kay Ives, has been advocating  for the abolishment of Roe versus Wade and all the rights it protected.

(D) Yolanda Flowers

Her challenger Yolanda Flowers is an advocate of a woman’s right to choose and expansion of the Affordable Care Act. GMW of Alabama please get to know what your candidate’s platform is, and which one, believes we have the right to decides what happens with our Bodies, not the government.

GMW, let’s look at Iowa’s Governor’s election:

Republican  incumbent: Kim Reynolds’s said,”Now is the time for us to stand up and continue the fight to protect the unborn. “The Supreme Court’s historic decision reaffirms that states have the right to protect the innocent and defenseless unborn—and now it’s time for our state to do just that. As governor, I will do whatever it takes to defend the most important freedom there is: the right to life.”

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Deidre DeJear says her Republican opponent’s legal push to revive a six week abortion ban shows Governor Reynolds is determined to stand against the will of the vast majority of Iowa

We need our Democratic Leaders to get a messaging, message where all are on the same page, and catering to their base. Your messaging will motivate us to donate. We are all sick and tired of e-mails asking for donations, with no defined platform we can respect and support. Galvanize us.

Put the GOP on blast, for some of the sneaky  despicable things they have done. Like the overturn of Roe V Wade,  and the revelations by Republicans testimonies, before the January 6 committee.  Clarence Thomas has the audacity to want to reverse LGBTQ marriages, but makes no makes no mention of, ”Virginia love,” because his wife is white, again I say, “people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.”

DEMOCRATS ITS TIME FOR YOU TO GO-GANGSTER-AND PARTISAN!!! 

Your Base Has Your Back

IT’S A DAME SHAME: Men can choose Assault Weapon. But women can’t choose what happens with their bodies.  

The GOP SCOTUS

A GOP Control Supreme Court of 6 men (who never had a period, cramp or labor pain) and 3 women Has Taken away a woman’s right to choose!!!

Elaine Laurie, in Va. if you want to keep your seat, take of the gloves, go Rambo or Shebo, go gangsters we have your back. 

GMW (Grandmothers, Mothers and Women), We are in a fight for our lives, and the future of our children in general and our daughters in particular.

There is no way the GOP should win a majority in any seats in the up-coming Midterm election-this November 8th. The only way that can happen ladies is, If we allowed it. 

America we must fight for our lives NOW

To all of our sisters, who woke up after you voted to make Trump, President, then realize you make a mistake. Well this is what that mistake looks like. A minority of Conservative white men,telling the majority, what they can do with their bodies and their human-rights.

Ladies we have the power to determine who has a Majority in Congress, Governors Office, and our  District Attorneys. DA must be be high-lighted because, abortions  has been criminalized and It’s imperative, we must put people in those seats who will support and protect our constitutional and human rights.

We need all hands on deck, making sure young people are very aware, their future is in the hand of old conservative white men. 

There are 3 three past Democratic President alive, Barack and Clinton are healthy, very Charismatic and articulate. President Carter is present but his health and age will give him pause. 

Our Democratic’s Leaders need to put together messaging, that sends home the Jim Crow direction the GOP is now paused to take this country.

The theory of GOP’s  winning midterm when a Democratic is in the Oval Office, does not apply this time. The GOP has been following Trump’s promise of making America great again. 

They are banning books, the right to vote, reverse Roe-wade, advocating CRT, and so many other human rights.

Young People you are, our greatest voting block right now, and it’s your future. In this upcoming midterm election, you must vote like your life depends on it, because it does. You must determine your future, not people 65 and older.

It time our president give Vice President Harris free reign to travel across country bring the message of what the GOP has done and is doing, and what we must do. He should also call on all past Democratic President to bring the same messaging’s to make the mid-terms belong to the Democrats, by any means necessary. Donald Trump never went to the place past presidents usually go, quietly in the background.

Democrats The GOP got rid of Roe Wade, You need to get rid of the Filibuster now. Please get some backbone democrats, and cater to your base. Barack Obama knows how to bring to our base and win.

GMW, I’m very angry. And I’m hoping our men are just as angry. Because, we don’t get pregnant by ourself, and child-support is going to be your part of these new laws.

GMW, and all Democrats: Jump start your fight by looking at Roland Martin Unfiltered show,”SCOTUS overturn Roe v Wade.

People who live in glass houses, should not throw stones. 

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW)

How can Fox News,  Trump Supporters or any GOP criticize anyone’s Character. Especially Questioning Top Democrats:  

 President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and former President Obama’s endorsement of Andrew Gillum’s failed Florida gubernatorial bid and hailed him as a man of character before he became embroiled in multiple scandals.

TRUMP VB GILLUM

They praised him before he became embroiled in multiple scandals.

Trump proves he has no character daily, and you still praise him???

I would rather have 10 people with Gillum’s , character,  in comparison to 1 of Donald Trump’s, and you still wants to make him President.  

I am not saying what Gillum has  done or allegedly done should be ignored, but Donald Trump should be in jail.  And never allowed to hold public office again. Does the two cases look like, “Equal Justice under the law.”

JUST AN OBSERVATION!!! People who live in glass houses, should not throw stones.

MID-TERM ELECTION: VOTE

I know we’re either going in, or coming out of disasters daily: Roe vs Wade, GOP SCOTUS, Assault weapons, inflation, January 6, Remember 10 in Buffalo an 21 in Tx., to name a few. We’re all still here because of the power that created us all. Jeremiah 29:11 We have work to do.

2022 MIDTERM VOTE FOR A SENATE WITH RESULTS

THE AR-15 ASSAULT WEAPON VS THE BODIED OF 19 BABIES 9&10. 

America Should Be Force To See Bodied Butchered By AR-15

The AR-15 rifle butchers the human body; so why is it legal, exactly?

Think about the impact of the photo of Emmett Till lying in his open casket, a victim of racist violence.

Doctors know what an AR-15 can do to kids’ bodies. The public and congress should too.

Dr. Roy Guerrero, the pediatrician who was at the scene of the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, testified before Congress that the shooting was “something no prayer will ever relieve: Two children whose bodies had been pulverized by bullets fired at them, decapitated, whose flesh had been ripped apart, that the only clue as to their identities was blood-spattered cartoon clothes still clinging to them.”

However — and with the parents’ permission, of course — perhaps if lawmakers and voters could see it too, we could finally enact meaningful change. America should not be spared from seeing the damage done to the human body by AR-15.

GMW & STOP THE VIOLENCE COALITION 

Let’s for Results In 2022 Mid-Terms

Mission Continues: Assaults Weapons should be banned, not changing the age to 21, for purchase.  

We have a MID-TERM ELECTION OBLIGATION: To do what Congress has refused to do. Replace 469 House and 34 Senate Seats with Congressional Persons, who should FORCE THEMSELVES, to look at the carnage done to the bodies of those 19 babies by an AR-15 assault weapon. Then, placed their love ones, their babies in that carnage, and passed legislation so that something like this, Will stop happening.

Lives Taken By An AR-15, Can’t Be In Vain.

I’m not forgetting adults killed my those weapons, but they were adults, had lived to adulthood, had an opportunity to be the best they could be. Those 9 and 10 year-olds, never had a chance to even graduate from Elementary School. Their destiny was determine by an AR-15!!!

GMWSOC WE HAVE FAILED OUR BABIES AND OUR COUNTRY

2022 MIDTERM ELECTIONS…

Our Babies and Gun Laws are in our Hands

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), I am holding myself accountable because my heart, soul and Conscience has convicting me. And, I’ve been crying uncontrollably with the guilt,  of knowing I have not done all I could have done. 

GMW we have not used our power collective. God gave us the Privilege of giving birth, He also gave us the power to protect our babies. Our God, Our Love, Our Dollars and Our Vote. 

GMW together we have the power to save our children and change the America. Alone, each of us just a woman, a mother and grandmother, making noise. But together, we’re a force to be recon with. It’s said, “when mom is not happy no one is.” Well, America Mom is not happy. 

Our Babies are afraid

AO 2D, and going forward, GMW, we have to hold Ourselves accountable.  We have very important , Gubernatorial  and Congressional races coming up, where we get to decide who stays in office or get replaced. Our babies are being treated like, Russian roulette, because, when we send them off to school, we have no idea if their school will be next, or if we will see them alive again.  And, our babies are afraid, they may never come home.

Why Are Assault weapons so available

So, GMW, what’s more important, allowing 36 Governor, of which 20 are GOP and 16 Democrats, and 469  congressmen, 435 House seats and 34 Senator seats,to remain in those positions, or shall we vote to fill those position with candidates who will put the interest of our babies and  America, before their bank accounts. 

For the 2022 Midterms,  GMW, we’re in the drivers seat, and the ball is in our park. So are we going to vote so our 18 babies, did not die in vain? Please Excuse my expression, but, “I don’t give a damn about party politics right now.” We need governors and congressman in office who’s going to do what’s best for our babies and country.   This election is going to be our soap-box topic to November 8, 2022. 

2022 MIDTERM ELECTIONS

Gubernatorial elections, 2022…

FORGIVENESS FROM: Grandmothers, Mothers, Women (GMW) and People of Color… 

FORGIVENESS TO: ALL FORMER SLAVE OWNERS AND CURRENT WHITE SUPREMACIST. 

AMEN

We Forgave And Receive The Power Of FORGIVNESS…Sometimes we tend to think of Forgivness as an action related to submission or meekness. Forgivness, however, is really a demonstration of strength and power. We call upon our courage to reach out and forgive someone who may have hurt us in someway, or even to forgive ourselves for some past mistake or happening.

It may not be easy to forgive, but as we do so, we draw upon our inner resources and in the process, renew and strengthen our own lives. The ability to forgive is a dynamic trait that determines our unlimited power.

Forgiveness begets forgiveness, For forgiveness begins and ever-widening circles of good. Those whom we forgive are strengthen and released; Likewise we are strengthened and released. As we forgive, we receive the power of forgiveness.

#WishesMsg…Power

🙏 Luke 6:3 – Judge Not; and you will not be judge; condemn not, and you will not be condemn; Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

🥀REAL FORGIVENESS IS A LIFETIME COMMITMENT.🤛🏾

 LETS GET READY TO VOTE-OR 4EVER HOLD YOUR PEACE

MIDTERM: November 8, 2022. The 2022 Primaries Dates For All 50 States are listed. 

Know Your Candidate, Knowledge Is Power

For all GMW (Grandmothers, Mothers, Women) in particular and America in general. No Sane Adult, can ever repeat the phrase again, “ My Vote Doesn’t Count.” The Voting in 2020 Election was pivotal in demonstrating the power of your vote.  You must decide which Majority Party you want in Congress. What type of leaders agendas will they support: presidents, judges, governors, mayors, City Councils, police chiefs, or school board members. You decide with your vote, which will have a major impact on your life and community.

An educated voter is a powerful Voter. Well! America the 2022 MIDTERM are twice as PIVOTAL. Each of us (registered voters) gets to decide: What type of leadership we want. Dr Kurt Lewis, father of Social Psychology, identify three types of leaders: laissez-faire, authoritarian and democratic.

What Type of leader are you voting for.

Laissez-faire leadership…

Laissez-faire leadership allows group members total freedom. Laissez-faire leaders do not participate in the decision-making process, and rarely offer opinions. This style can work well if the group is highly motivated and competent. However, laissez-faire leadership has many drawbacks. Without the leader’s input, the group can sink into conflict as members jockey over roles and responsibilities. In Lewin’s study, the children under laissez-faire leadership were the least productive and the most argumentative. 

James Buchanan’s presidency offers a historical example of the weaknesses of laissez-faire leadership. As slavery threatened to tear America apart, the nation needed leadership from the White House. James Buchanan failed to offer it.

Authoritarian leadership…

Authoritarian leadership means that the leader has full power. Authoritarian leaders tell groups what to do and expect group members to execute.  This style may work well, allowing the leader to make a quick decision and providing the group with direct instructions. An authoritarian leader who presents a clear vision can motivate a divided group. However, authoritarian leaders are more likely to disregard the good ideas of others. The style can also inspire resentment and stress. In Lewin’s study, the children under authoritarian leadership were productive but not very creative. 

President Lyndon Johnson provides an example of effective authoritarian leadership. In Congress, Johnson was known for his aggressive style and his remarkable ability to get legislation passed. When one senator quipped, “Rome wasn’t built in a day, another responded, “Lyndon Johnson wasn’t the foreman on that job.” As President, Johnson sought aimed to remake American society. His sweeping vision included civil rights, voting rights, and Medicare. To achieve his goals, Johnson would cajole, threaten, charm, and browbeatopponents into submission. Johnson’s sheer force of will drove his landmark bills through Congress.

The Kim family of North Korea is an extreme case of authoritarian leadership. In North Korea, senior advisers are terrified of Kim-Jong Un with good reason. Instead of honest advice, these men offer useless flattery instead. Unchecked, an authoritarian leader can prove disastrous.

Democratic leadership…

Democratic leadership balances decision-making responsibility between the group and the leader. Democratic leaders actively participate in discussions, but also make sure to listen to the views of others. This style often leads to positive, inclusive, and collaborative work environments. Furthermore, a good democratic leader can bring out the group’s creativity. Under this style, the leader still retains final responsibility for the group’s decision. In Lewin’s study, the children under democratic leadership made the highest quality contributions.

General Dwight Eisenhower and Nelson Mandela are examples of successful democratic leaders. During WWII, Ike was appointed Supreme Allied Commander. While that title might seem to imply unlimited authority, he worked extremely hard to hold together a diverse coalition.  He preferred discussing issues with his staff rather than simply barking orders. Never afraid to take blame, he once said, “leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well.”

Mandela displayed a democratic leadership style as a leader of the African National Congress (ANC) he believed that people of all colors and political affiliations could contribute to the good of all. When he became president, Mandela could have sought revenge on his former oppressors. Instead, in an exceptional act of forgiveness and reconciliation, he included them in his government. His decision greatly accelerated the national healing process in South Africa.

AN EDUCATED VOTER IS POWERFUL!!!

 NORFOLKIANS: THAT US.

The violence in our beautiful city has to be seriously address and dealt with by each of us, doing our part as, “NORFOLKIANS:
