Our focus is now on what we’re going to do to have a seat at those Governing Tables
GMW, the issues consuming the powers from the highest offices of the land, has almost lost their way and ability to lead. We all know a (2 ) two year olds’ mentality is in the Oval Office and, now being allowed to bully the leaders of the house and senate, plus their members. It’s very sad to see so many people, who went to Washington to serve with integrity, now selling their souls for so little.
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell has proven, they are incapable of making sure the person in the Oval Office don’t totally destroy what our country stands for at home and abroad. Lindsay Graham has become an embarrassment. I once had respect for him but, how can we respect someone who has such low regard for his principles, values and his word. Decency, morals, and ethics has left the building, all qualities that must be in place, to prevent evil from triumphing.
Grandmothers, mothers and women, We are going to prepare for the election of 2018 with our power. Our focus is now on what we’re going to do to have a seat at those Governing Tables, which has a major impacts on us, our families, communities, cities and states; while making those tables looks like the rainbow our country is. We would love to get back to Bipartisan Leadership; but the GOP is falling apart daily. Both branches are busy backpedaling trying to compensate for the antics of a two year mentality.
Our efforts are going to be stating issues in Urban, Rural and Suburban environments that we want addressed. We vote, shop, give birth our of love and server God for guidance and direction more than any other gender.
City Hall has a part to play and it’s called politics; we are going to determine the rules for City Hall and combine it with love and our God. We will achieve it with dignity, ethics, values, integrity, empathy and discernment; qualities essential for leadership.
America: The election in Alabama in the next 12 or 15 days with Mr. Moore as candidate, should be a lost seat for the GOP based on morals. If the Democratic don’t win this seat, they only have themselves to blame. Instead of rallying their base, they are busy trying to persuade the Republicans to use their principles and values, to help them win the election. When what they need, is to rally their own base, like other parties do.
GMW: Men occupy the majority of the powerful positions in the private and political area across the country. They have been abusing that power over women and people with less influence for years. Anita Hill, vs. Clarence Thomas is a perfect example, of why people who have been victimize, remained quiet. Being appalled by sexual misconduct in the work place is not a party issue, it’s a moral issue and simply unacceptable behavior. Washington has make it a party issue, when it’s simply, men with no respect for those who works for, and under them.
Donald Trump and John Conyers are two (2) of the highest ranking persons in office for each party and It’s apparent, neither of them has used good judgment, integrity, values, honesty and principle in relating to those who work with and under them. The Private Sector’s examples of dealing with those who cross the lines of propriety in the work place is admired and appreciated.
The wins the Democrat had in the last election was because their base came out. Which was 91 percent women of color and 81 percent men of color in Virginia. but, across the country, we saw the results of what can happen when you value your base.
GMW the men whom we have elected to represent us, our families , communities, cities and states have violated that trust intolerably. Until we have Bipartisan Leadership and Equal Representation of all Ethnic Groups (the rainbow) in America at the table, we will continue to have the violations of human rights, double standards and blatant injustice across our country and the workplace
Grandmothers, Mothers and Women,(gmw) in the upcoming election we must get in positions, which will enable us to correct the damage that’s being perpetrated against us and our families from Capitol Hill and our States Leadership. We will need to put in the work necessary with Bipartisan corporation and input, in creating Tax Laws that will impact each of us and our families and make sure every American has access to affordable Healthcare.
We will start with Prison Reform: Looking at 2 cases for example. 15 years old Nicholas Blount, tried as an adult; pleaded innocent went to trial. 16 years old, Kiaun R. Bray, tried as an adult and plea bargained.
GMW its time we put a price tag on our Dollars and Votes in 2018, for the sake of our children. If candidates wants our votes, they have to address our issues. We would like to coalition with the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) and The Children’s Defense Fund; organizations doing exceptional work in prison Reform.
People of color we must become more proactive in making sure we’re in Jury selection Pools, I think the jurors should reflect the landscape. I’m a little tired of seeing all white faces dispensing justice and everyone else in the courtroom receiving the results, is of color.
According to the Wall Street Journal a few years ago. The House Judiciary Committee introduced five bills in a bipartisan effort to reform America’s criminal-justice system. With incarceration rates in the U.S. five to 10 times higher than in Western Europe and other democracies, the bills aim was to provide sensible reforms such as rewriting mandatory-sentencing statutes. Yet none directly addresses plea bargaining, a practice that induces too many defendants to plead guilty to avoid what has come to be known as the trial penalty.
The practice of charging young people as adults gained momentum in America in the 1990s, as youth crime spiked and adults attention was weaning from their children to social media.
Consider the case of Nicholas Blount, who was 15 when he robbed a party with (2) 18 year old gang members. His older accomplice plea bargained and got much lighter sentence of 10 to 13 years.
Blount felt he was innocent of some charges, and opted for trial hoping for justice. He got 6 life sentences plus 118 years.
Travion Blount was serving one of the harshest punishments delivered to any American teenager for a crime not involving murder. Governor McDonnell shortened his time to 40 years before he left office; and thank God Terry McAuliffe, pardon him before leaving office.
Now look at the case of Kjaun Rahmein Bray. He was 16 August, 2000 when the offense occurred, his accomplish was a 16 year old male, who testified against him and has been out of prison for several years. they both plea bargained and were tried as Adults.
Mr. Bray was convicted upon his Plea of Guilty to Malicious Wounding, two counts of abduction, Carjacking, Use of Firearm in the Commission of Felony and two counts of Robbery and sentenced to terms totaling, 28 years and 7 months, on March 16, 2001.
Mr. Bray, still has 8 years to serve. I just finish reading his response to the question brought to him of: “What do you think men in my position need if they were to be released from prison, not just from us who are incarcerated but for the ones who are also re-entering back into society.’
Mr. Bray Titled his response: CHANGE THE MIND CHANGE THE MAN. My blueprint for a positive transition into society. It was a fantastic read. I’m going to try and get it published on his behalf.
We are not suggesting juveniles are not punish for their crimes, they are not adults. We haven’t finish raising them, and they are incapable of making adult decisions and should not be tried as adults.
America is the only country in the world that sentence their children to death.

15-year-old to be tried as adult in shooting of Portsmouth police officer:
GMW: When I heard this story on November 6 ,2017, my heart and prayers went out for the injured officer. Then I heard of the young man who shot her. I was appalled that a 15 year old child had a gun and shot a police officer. I then wondered: Who is this child. The following is what I found.
When Patterson first appeared in court after his arrest, he cried as a judge explained the severity of the charges against him. With his hands and feet shackled, he used his shoulder to wipe away tears. He wore jeans and a T-shirt, his hands and feet shackled. His mother and his legal guardian – an aunt – stood beside him.
The 15-year-old stood before a judge, crying as she explained the severity of the charges against him.
All we know about Will Patterson is that he’s a black young male, that was able to have gun instead of a book ,and shot a police officer who was trying to arrest him for being out of school. A tenth grader who has been a truant and is an admitted member of the 300 hundred gang. He is now going before a judge To Be sentenced as an adult.
Patterson, a 10th-grader at I.C. Norcom High School who has been truant, is an admitted member of the 300 gang, according to a summary of the case read in court.
I’m not condoning his crime, I’m only asking, ‘was this child ever in an environment that was conducive to his development. Was he ever treated as a child… loved, nurtured and cared for. So many of our juvenile delinquents are being tried as adults and their lives are over before they got started. These children did not give birth to themselves; there are adults somewhere, who dropped the ball.
When mass murderers commits heinous crimes, like the Vegas Shooter, or even Pit Bulls, they get analyzed. Their pedigree is checked, just to try and understand what brought them to the end results, but for young men like William Patterson Jr., there no concern… Only-15-year-old to be tried as adult in shooting of Portsmouth police officer:
Grandmothers we are losing too many of our men to the streets; It’s really takes a village to raise a child. They all belong to us. If we don’t try to save them, who will. We brought them into the world, was given stewardship over them by God, I think we have all fallen short.
Why Are Our Kids Killing Themselves?GMW: We’re so preoccupied with politics and what our out of control politicians are doing, until it appears we have lost track of what’s important. Right and wrong left a long time ago, it seems.
Our children must really feel lost. Their daily observation of us, as adults and all major media outlets showcasing our lack of morals, values, principals and of being able to determine right from wrong.
GMW we have set back for years, allowing our men to bring us and our children to this low point. The problems our children face must be solved by parents, schools, community and City Hall. Can you visualize how our children would feel, if they were enjoying just half of the attention that has been devoted to politics in past almost 365 days; they would have more reasons to live.
GMW I’m confident, we are about to come to the table and start righting some wrongs. This 10 year old girl killed herself November 30, and a 13 year old girl killed herself December 4, 2017. They got no National Attention, not news worthy, how sad we have become. But GMW, in Jesus name we’re going to fix it.
Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW)Let’s give God the glory, for Good Triumphing over evil and giving us a very good reason for being proud of our country and actually seeing there are more good people in this country than appalling.
GMW going forward, we must reach out to our sisters, who compromised their morals and values for the means justify the end theory. Grandmothers, mothers and women Bipartisan Leadership is the top of our agenda going forward. But, those GOP Leaders who sold their souls, including Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan needs to be replaced. As heads of the house and senate, their leadership is null and void.
The GOP’s constant reminder to us, That the majority of American People made #45 President. Well let’s look at the numbers of the 2016 Presidential Election:
#45 got 304 electoral votes and Clinton got 227, #45 won the election by 77 votes. He did not win the popular vote which was: Clinton, (48.2) 65,844,954 for #45 (46.1%) 62,979,879 a difference of 2.9 million votes; according to revised and certified final election results from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In essence the Electoral College made him #45 with 304 votes.
GMW, The 2nd amendments to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of rights. The weapons of 1791.
It’s states A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
The 2nd amendment only applied to muskets
GMW (grandmothers, mothers and women) The AR15’s are Assault Weapons of the 21st Century, how is it they are protected by the 2nd amendment rights.
GMW, we are no longer asking why we are losing so many of our babies and adults to the violence of gun in general, and Assaults weapons, AR15 in particular.
For our politicians, who are in the pockets of the NRA, we’ll leave them there, but we are going to get them out of Washington. For every GMW who’s sick and tired of the gun violence, do something about it. Use the power of your Vote and Dollars November 6, 2018.
GMW, we are not helpless nor powerless, some of us might be spineless but, we have each other’s backs, and we all have access to the same power: Our God, Our Love, Our Dollars and Our Vote.
GMW isn’t it sort of strange, we have not seen or heard, or I haven’t heard our President acting as leader of our country addressing the tragedy In Florida. It appears he’s just happy the media is not focusing on his new Breaking News Story.
Ladies, this year we’re going to make the country duplicate what happened in Va. in 2017. All 435 members of the House and 33 of the 100 in the senate is up for election in 2018.
We have an opportunity to send 468 New Politicians to Washington, who will do what we want. We need gun and prison reforms. We have more guns in our streets and people in prison than any other country in the world. We can make a difference!!!
We are going to get commonsense guns laws. Our men in the House can no longer legislate without us and The Senate can’t serves as a “check and balance”. or ratifies treaties, tries impeachments, and elects the vice presidents when necessary.
They can no longer be at the tables without us, who knows how to be bipartisan with principles, integrity, decency, and values.
The sleeping giants are awake and standing. Our power is going to be speaking for us from now on, if we’re serious about change.
Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), I’m quite sure each of us is realizing our country, and way of life has been compromised. It has been manipulated by Vladimir Putin, with Donald Trump as his vehicle of choice. Those GOP’s in leadership in Washington has lost their way, along with some democrats, like Chuck Schumer.
From the time Mr. Trump entered the presidential race in 2015 until now, our standards started eroding. We have been infiltrated by the Russian, we’re in a cold war. Our values changed. Good people started looking away while evil triumphed. Political Leaders and our main stream media has lost their minds, from the time Trump became a candidate, he has been in the news every single day. Garbage sells.
His divisive rhetoric has divided our country, like nothing has before. Mr. Putin could not have been more effective if he was given carte blanche to destroy our democracy and everything we stand for. He has succeed in having our POTUS denigrating, and has turned on the very branches that are responsible for keeping us safe and helping police the world, The FBI, CIA, the Attorney General and our Military has been put danger and devalued by Donald Trump/Putin.
The two(2) branches we have in place for check and balances on the Oval Office has proven to be null and void. Our government has ceased to function. They managed to repeal several issues that were not debatable. and used those issued to stop our government, because they were inept and unable to orchestra a budget consisting of real issues. instead they reinvented the wheel, with Chip and DACA, things the American People are in support of already.
GMW, we can’t prove it but, our common sense, discernment, logic, wisdom, principles, values, integrity and our God given intuition, is prompting us to open our eyes and really see and smell the stint that permeating our country in general and those charged with running our government from the highest offices of our country. From the Oval Office to the House and Senate; the heads of those branches, are infesting the rest of those we trusted, to act on our behalf and do what’s best for our count, when we sent them to Washington.
Grandmothers, Mothers and Women, we’re better than this, our men have forgotten how to be objective.
But, we know for a fact, beside every successful honest man, is a Great Woman and we’re going to prove it. We have the power, ready to use it. Please stay tune.
