Kapparot: The Chicken Holocaust

Farmers beware! Lock up your poultry, the Chicken Holocaust is upon us! Yom Kippur begins at sundown on Sunday September 27 and ends at nightfall on Monday September 28! Untold thousands of chickens will suffer unspeakable deaths at the hands of jews seeking atonement for their own sins!

Kapparot is a cruel and sadistic animal sacrifice ritual in which the "sins" and misdeeds of a jew are symbolically transferred to a fowl. It is practiced on the eve of Yom Kippur.

During the vile and vicious ritual, selections of semitic scripture from Isaiah 11:9, Psalms 107:10, 14, and 17-21, and Job 33:23-24 are muttered in Hebrew while a live rooster (for a male) or a hen (for a female) is held above the jew's head and swung in a circle three times and the jew exclaims: "This is my exchange, my substitute, my atonement; this rooster (or hen) shall go to its death, but I shall go to a good, long life, and to peace." The jew then brutally slaughters the chicken, under the belief that the fowl will take on any misfortune that might otherwise occur to the jew who has taken part in the ritual, in punishment for his or her "sins".

In other words, the chickens must suffer for the misdeeds of the jews. Doesn't sound like a very good deal for the chickens.

Oh, yeah... PETA is pissed.

Sen. Johnny Isakson Campaigns To Block Action Against Israel For Human Rights Atrocities And War Crimes

Washington, DC
Georgia senator Johnny Isakson and senator Kristen Gillibrand of New York are campaigning on behalf of the terrorist state of Israel to prohibit discussion of the findings of the recent "Goldstone Report" throughout current meetings of the United Nations Human Rights Council in an effort to cover up war crimes committed by Israel against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

A letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton states, "We hope you will succeed in your efforts to ensure that consideration of the report at the current meetings of the U.N. Human Rights Council will not provide an opportunity for Israel’s critics to unfairly use the Council and the report to bring this matter to the U.N. Security Council".

Although, officially, the letter is being circulated by the offices of Gillibrand and Isakson, it is believed to have originated from a zionist extremist group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Isakson is a rabid zionist with a long record of support for the Israeli terrorists. (See Isakson's March 2008 AIPAC speech here.)

The report is the result of the UN Human Rights Council investigation into war crimes and atrocities against Palestinian civilians by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), specifically Israel's "Operation: Cast Lead" which was executed during last winter's Gaza war. The investigation commission was headed by Judge Richard Goldstone, of South Africa. The Goldstone Report was released last week and charges Israel with numerous war crimes. The 575 page Advance Edited Version of the report is availible at the link below.

Fugitive Dekalb County Cop Captured In Belize

Punta Gorda, Belize
Following a lead given to the US Department of State's Diplomatic Security Service, police arrested fugitive Dekalb County Sheriffs Deputy Derrick Yancey in a bar in Punta Gorda, Belize.

Yancey is accused of murdering his 44 year old wife Linda Yancey (who was also a Dekalb police officer) and Marcial Cax Puluc, a 20 year old immigrant "day laborer", inside the Yancey's Stone Mountain, Georgia home in August of 2008. Yancey claimed that the day laborer had shot his wife and then he shot the day laborer. Yancey was arrested after ballistics tests confirmed that he had killed both victims.

On August 28, 2008 Dekalb Superior Court Judge Anne Workman ordered that the accused double murderer was to be released on bond and placed under "house arrest". On April 4, 2009, Yancey cut the electronic monitoring device off his ankle and fled from his mother's Clayton county home, where he had been living under "house arrest".

Yancey remained on the run for five months and was profiled on America's Most Wanted. He's also included in the show's "Cops On The Wrong Side Of The Law" feature.

Police in Belize say Yancey was taken into custody without incident in a bar in southern Belize on September 19, 2009.

"We had his photograph in our possession and upon identifying ourselves, he just handed over himself. There was no resistance in his arrest," said Inspector Andres Makin of the Punta Gorda Police Station.

Yancey will be extradited back to Georgia to face prosecution.

PGA At East Lake Golf Club

Atlanta, GA
The Professional Golfers Association comes to the East Lake Golf Club for the FedEx Cup Championship playoffs. The tournament begins on Thursday, September 24 and runs through Sunday, September 27.

The East Lake Golf Club opened in 1904. The course is credited with producing golfing great Bobby Jones as well as 21 national champions. The course and the clubhouse have undergone major renovations as recently as 2008. The course has also suffered extensive damage from the recent drought and, most likely, additional damage from the floods that hit the area over the past weekend.

Let's just hope Tiger Woods doesn't get car-jacked messing around out in east Atlanta.

Two Dekalb School Officials Suspended For Test Fraud

Atlanta, GA
The Georgia Professional Standards Commission suspended two Dekalb County School officials on Thursday.

Former Atherton Elementary School principal James Berry was banned from working in Georgia's public schools for two years and former Atherton assistant principal Doretha Alexander was banned for one year for their roles in correcting student's answers on CRCT test forms in order to retain federal funding.

The Commission also approved formal investigations of at least eight other Georgia educators in connection with the statewide scandal. The scheme was uncovered when State officials noticed a high number of eraser marks on tests from Atherton and four other Georgia schools. The Governor's Office of Student Achievements preliminary audit results revealed that someone deliberately changed students' answers on the 5th grade CRCT math re-test.

The state said the scores improved significantly by the changes. At Atherton, the state found on average, answers were altered 21 times per student, the majority of the changes making them correct.

“The evidence presented was both compelling and troubling to me as superintendent of the DeKalb County School System. I assure you I am moving with great speed to address this matter internally.”, said DeKalb County school superintendent, Dr. Crawford Lewis.

Berry and Alexander were also arrested in connection with the incident and face criminal charges including altering public documents.

Negroes Fear White Mayor

Atlanta, GA
Black mayoral candidate and Atlanta City Council President, Lisa Borders has returned a $500 campaign contribution after she challenged a memo he sent out as being racist. Negro political operative and former Borders supporter Aaron Turpeau recently circulated a memo calling for Atlanta's negro community to support Borders over white candidate Mary Norwood.

When news of the memo became public, Borders issued statements calling the memo "racist". Several other candidates spoke out against the "black mayor first" memo which was written by two negro professors from Clark Atlanta University, William Boone and Keith Jennings.

Turpeau was surprised and disappointed by the reaction to the memo and the return of his check stating, “The reaction by the two leading black candidates was very disappointing. Candidate Kasim Reed, who the memo pointed out was far behind in the polls, led the charge by crying out charges of black racism and was quickly followed by candidate Lisa Borders calling the memo racist, instead of an opportunity for racial discussion,”

“Both outcries are seen by many in the black community as pandering for white votes and support.” Turpeau said.

The "black mayor first" memo is presented below.


The debate over the best strategic option for black leadership and the African American community as we approach the Mayoral election in Atlanta has become critical based on the fact that for the last 25 years Atlanta has represented the breakthrough for black political empowerment in the South.

It is debatable to what extent the objective socio-economic and political position of the African American community has improved. At the same time, most would agree that the Jackson breakthrough represented an unprecedented opportunity for black political representation nationwide.

A passionate argument has been made for us to develop a unity of purpose and position, and for that to be defined immediately, given the short amount of time remaining between now and November 2009 election day (two and ½ months from now).

There are unstated assumptions that need to be examined. Perhaps the most critical factor is the lack of an agenda against which to evaluate candidates. An agenda, beyond just electing a Black Mayor, would allow us to move from the margins of the debate to controlling the expectations associated with gaining our support.

Three basic assertions have been made. They are as follows:

1. There is a chance for the first time in 25 years that African Americans could lose the Mayoral seat in Atlanta, Georgia, especially if there is a run-off;

2. Time is of the essence because in order to defeat a Norwood (white) mayoral candidacy we have to get out now and work in a manner to defeat her without a runoff, and the key is a significant Black turnout in the general election;

3. The reasons support should be given to Lisa Borders is: 1) she is the best black candidate in the race who has a chance to win the election because she can attract downtown white support; and 2) based on polling data drawn from a host of sources between May 2009 and July 2009, the numbers suggest Borders is growing stronger as we move closer to the election, while the most recent polling data suggests that the other black candidates are falling further behind over the same period.

There are also at least three unstated assumptions that should be further explored:

Unstated Assumption

1. With the “Black Mayor first” approach there is an unstated assumption that having a black mayor in Atlanta is equal to having a black social, economic and political agenda or at least someone in office who would be sensitive to that agenda if not a full promoter of that agenda;

2. By coming out for Borders now would eliminate Reed, Spikes and Thomas as viable candidates. Some would argue that if the polling data is correct then those candidates who are only polling at 8%, 2% and 1% respectfully, are already effectively out of the race; and

3. It is unlikely that there will be a unified preference among existing black leadership and in the African American community for one candidate prior to the general election.

The Missing Factors in the Current Approach

There are at least seven real world common knowledge factors that must be taken into consideration as we debate how best to manifest our support in the run-up to the November elections. They are as follows:

1. The impact of current alienation among Black Atlantans from the political establishment;

2. The imperiled state of the Jackson Machine, (in part because of the displacement of close to 100,000 black residents over the past few years) and the effect operation of the NPU system by whites;

3. Shirley Franklin’s perceived poor performance;

4. The changing demographics in the city, the potential role of new city voters and the diminished role of religious and labor leaders in mobilizing the black vote;

5. The importance of the City Council races (which to date seems to have been ignored);

6. The persistent poverty in the city, the educational crisis in the schools; the human security/public safety concerns; the type of economic development policies being pursued; and the city’s awful financial management issues;

7. A Black Agenda that any candidate should be evaluated against.

What’s At Stake?

Determining what’s at stake depends on perspective:

1. The view that the times are too serious to stand on the sidelines is absolutely correct from the perspective of a black mayor at all cost. In fact, if a white candidate were to win the 2009 mayoral race, it would be just as significant in political terms as Maynard Jackson’s victory in 1973.

2. Therefore, the question becomes, if that were the case, how would African American interests be addressed; thus, the need for a comprehensive agenda. At the same time, just having a black mayor doesn’t guarantee that African American issues and concerns would be effectively addressed either (as the current administration’s relationship to the African American community clearly demonstrates). In other words, are we simply providing votes without any expectations of the candidate that would enjoy our support?;

3. While some may think that Franklin represents the last link to the Jackson Machine, it is not widely known that both Borders and Reed are directly connected to Franklin; or that Spikes and Thomas are Republicans, as is Norwood. Additionally, it should not be overlooked that whoever is Mayor of Atlanta will be in position to play an important role in the upcoming 2010 Georgia Governor’s race;

4. The changing demographics which show a more rapid growth in the city’s white population (faster and a higher percentage than anywhere else in the country) requires that we critically evaluate all candidates;

5. To ignore the alienation that exists among black voters towards the Franklin Administration’s performance is naive at best and dishonest at worse; and finally,

6. We need an overall governance strategy and a definition of who really governs in Atlanta. In other words, in 2009 we have arrived at a place in time where we can no longer afford to just look at race in the Mayor’s race or individual council races.

At the end of the day, “when the morning comes,” a black agenda would better enable us to have our interests respected by and our influence realized in any administration.

Court Issues 'Slap On The Wrist' For Court Employee In Ticket Fixing Scam

Decatur, GA
Last week Dekalb County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker handed down sentences against former court employee Charlene Johnson and local clothing store owner Sonia Williams for their part in a long running ticket fixing scheme. Six others were arrested during the investigation.

Johnson (pictured at left) pleaded guilty to violating the public trust, using her position in at the Recorder's Court to have cases dismissed in exchange for money. Williams pleaded guilty to bringing tickets to Johnson and giving Johnson cash or "store discounts" in exchange for having cases dismissed.

The two were charged with 171 criminal charges, including violations of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Johnson admitted to netting over $20,000 from the scheme over the last three years. Johnson was sentenced to 20 years, but ordered to serve only 12 months and to pay restitution, while Williams was sentenced to five years, but ordered to serve only 30 days.
