The open credits have ended, the scene begins with an action setting. The group of men are running for their lives, 4 white men and 1 Black man.
The troubled group find themselves cornered. They scurry to a small opening in the cave, and before a valiant attempt could be made, “Slash!“. The Black character is struck down, his death came quick! Not even 10 minutes into the movie.
It is almost the given in most action and horror movies. The spoken rule, that is openly discussed amongst “Black” Americans and the movie industry.
Even Black “A-List” actors are not safe from the proverbial “Chop!“.

Then there are the Heroin movies. The cast are primarily white with a disproportionate number of Melanin Rich characters. These movies will feature some world ending calamity or social destruction, where the white man or woman, “saves the day“. Yes, the white savior.

When there is a Black Heroin, he is; a homeless-drunk, the Spawn of the Devil or an “Undead” Day-Walker. He is more times over, created with massive character flaws.
To be fair, in the most recent Superhero movies, a lot of the known white superheroes have been cast with “Black” actors. A generous move to say the least.

One could ask, Why would a white writer, write a fantastical heroic movie about a black heroin in a predominantly melanin rich metropolis?
Where in that story could he/she relate?

So when a story is written about the riches, technologically advanced Nation in the world, led by, one of the world’s most intelligent minds, in a fictitious, secretly located area in Africa, one would expect such an epic story to be created by a Black man, right? Wrong.

T'Challa: Black Panther

T’Challa: Black Panther

The story of The Black Panther was a joint creation of Marvel’s Jack Kirby and Stan Lee (1966). This would be the first Black Superhero in a mainstream American comic. Everything about the Black Panther was original and unique from it’s back story to origin.

The creation of The Black Panther had no correlation with The Black Panther Party, which formed the same year (1966).

Black Panther quickly became a relevant character and superhero in the Marvel Universe, so how could anyone other than a Black man write such a progressive story and character?

T’Challa, a prince, who had risen to King (after the assassination of his father, T’Chaka, former King and Black Panther) of one of the most powerful nations (Wakanda: fictitious Kingdom in Africa) that operated in stealth in the continent of Africa. He would rank as one of the top 5 greatest minds in the world and considered an elite superhero, even defeating America’s Hero, Captain America.

Captain America Is Defeated By The Black Panther during An Invasion Of His Homeland, Wakanda.

Captain America Is Defeated By The Black Panther During An Invasion Of His Homeland, Wakanda.

Yet, this awe inspiring story was not the creation of a Black man.

The entertainment industry have been profiting quite handsomely for several years now off of many Comic Heroes and stories.
As mentioned, some of these stories have been altered (for self – creativity and progressive direction), at times, these changes have disappointed the loyal Comic Community and others have accepted it. From minor alterations to bolder decisions, there has been plenty of room made to constantly invoke new ideas.

Such as the direction, Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige had taken when hiring director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station and Creed) on-board.

Director: Ryan Coogler Fruitville Station And Creed

Director: Ryan Coogler
Fruitvale Station And Creed

Marvel explains that Black Panther will be one of the last superhero characters to get their own stand-alone film. Feige also admits that, “He’s [Black Panther] important” to the future of the Marvel Universe.
In addition to Coolger directing the film, Feige announces that Black Panther would be the first Marvel film to feature a majority black cast, with Chadwick Boseman (42) already casts’ as Black Panther.

“It was important they remained faithful to the comic and the character’s origins”, shared Feige.

For all Marvel fans, comic/action movie enthusiasts and Melaninated People this should be promising and exciting.

One would be curious to, Captain America star, Anthony Mackie‘s thoughts on the decisions and directions of Marvel’s selection of Ryan Coogler, as director. The actor made a statement saying, “The race of the director shouldn’t factor into the decision.

I don’t think it’s important at all (having a Black Director)”, Mackie expresses. “As a director your job is to tell a story. You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct ‘Seabiscuit!’…
Comments like these weigh heavily in the Melanin community especially when, at times, they seem slighted against a shared race. Many times the vocal party would be labeled “cooning“.

What are your thoughts?

Black Panther is scheduled to be released on Feb. 16, 2018.

Why Is My Orange Green?
In order for one to understand “why“, one must recognize Hybridization and be able to date this practice to ages ago.
Procedures such as Crossbreeding and Hybridizing was the practice of creating new plants and animals from two or more different wild species. The new species carried the characteristics of it’s dissimilar parents, yet was unique. This enabled cultivation and control by creating or domesticating various plant and animal life. This would allow for the new species to survive in regions and various conditions that the parents could not.
For example; Wheat, what we know as wheat was hybridized. Wheat was the result of rural growth. Plant life could not thrive in this environment, and with the growth of the population, there was a demand for a “food” source that could aid in the supply, providing for the populations.
This concept may confuse, anger and frighten many. Especially when one must confront the fact that many of the foods in which we consume today, were created…”Yesterday“, such as carrots or bananas. Bananas, the fruit that has become familiar in America, is less than 60years old.

When trying to identify plants, one must understand three of the main Characteristics Of A Plant:

"All Real Seeds Are Black"

“All Real Seeds Are Black”

  1. Seeds (All Real Seeds Are Black)
  2. Roots
  3. Leaves/Fruit

Without these characteristics there cannot be (consistent) natural growth.

Some common hybrid fruits are: seedless apples, several date varieties like kiwis, seedless pineapples, seedless citrus fruit, seedless grapes, seedless persimmons, seedless watermelons and strawberries.

  • Common hybrid vegetables include: beets, carrots, corn, potatoes, celery, and cauliflower.
  • Common hybrid nuts, seeds and beans include: cashews, oats, rice, wheat, wheat grass, soy, legumes, and most beans.
  • Common hybrid herbs include: Goldenseal, Ginseng, Echinacea, Chamomile, DonQuay, Aloe Vera, Nut Meg, Comfrey and Garlic.

 

Hybrid List

Food is medicine, which is why it is important to understand what hybrid foods are and to be able to identify them. These changes and manipulations result in the loss of it’s proper mineral balance (Molecular structure) that wild foods contain. Therefore, when one consumes an ample amount of hybrid fruit, the body becomes deficient of minerals, compounded by high, unnatural sugar and starch content. These changes forces the body to absorb the minerals from the bones, into the blood to balance/neutralize the sugar, and none of this is healthy for the liver and pancreas.

Are All Hybrid Foods Unhealthy?

If an animal or plant is unable to reproduce (without artificial help), by definition, that creature is Unhealthy. When one consumes that element, at best, macronutrients are absorbed, but micronutrients are lost.

For instance, plants that grow in depleted soil with chemical fertilizers would not contain all the minerals and phytonutrients, they would normally receive in the wild. They would also be exposed to far less stress, therefore, less hormesis happens, and the plant synthesizes antioxidants along with other micronutrients.

Who Was James Marion Sims?

He was revered as the pioneer of gynecological surgery, instruments and procedures. Ideally, this monster, was considered “The Father Of Gynecology“. Any significant contributions should be demeaned by his heinous practices.

In 1845, Sims opened a private hospital for women in Montgomery, Alabama. Slave women were brought to Sims, many ailing, to treat and study one of the most common problems; Vesicovaginal Fistulas—a condition often caused by prolonged childbirth. From this a hole forms in between the bladder or rectum and the vagina. The tear causes urine and feces to pool in the vagina, creating infections, pain, and incontinence. Fixing it required a doctor to be able to look into the vaginal canal.

Sims was eager to develop a way to surgically seal up the hole, and saw great (inhumane) benefits using slave women as test subjects. It was from these procedures and incidents that the Speculum was thought of and created. The idea for the Speculum came to Sims while treating a white woman patient. The woman was thrown from a horse and suffered injuries to her uterus. It was recorded that after he helped the woman “reposition her uterus”, he had an epiphany. He bought several slave women for the purpose of study and experiments, and that day used a slave, having her lie on her back with her legs up, and inserted the bent handle of a “Pewter Spoon” into her vagina. This “invention” allowed Sims to start performing surgery on the fistulas. He became successful in developing a method for sealing them. Unfortunately, he performed all of his experimental procedures, on the Afrikan women, without anesthesia, forcing pain and often death upon them.

Today’s “modern” speculum is based on the use of a bent gravy spoon. The irony is that Sims didn’t want to have to look at a woman’s genitals.

“If there was anything I hated, it was investigating the organs of the female pelvis.”

It Was Through The Sacrifice And Pain Of Many Afrikan Women, That Crude Instruments And Procedures Where Performed.

It Was Through The Sacrifice And Pain Of Many Afrikan Women, That Crude Instruments And Procedures Where Performed.

Sims’ performed extremely unethical and barbaric experiments on enslaved Afrikan women. Many times with crude and tortuous instruments. His actions of torture led to many deaths or maimed women. Sims would justify his behavior by trying to reason that

“Slave women were able to bear great pain…”, unanesthetized, “because their race made them more durable and thus, they were well suited for painful medical experimentation.”

As we approach the month of February. The month where Afrikans/Melaninated people’s history is reduced to “28days“, for 28days Black Americans are to remind themselves of the many marvelous accomplishments of African and Black Americans, during and post slavery.

Understand that many inventions and accomplishments were stolen or hidden. Therefore, one must never forget and at times reflect on those that sought to destroy, demoralize and silence “Black Power“!

James Marion Sims are one of the many. His legacy is a lie, his actions…unforgivable!

Our Children Are Targets!

Our children are being indoctrinated into The #AgeOfAquarius! Children are seen as pure Virgin Souls. Through many Satanic Cults and demonic practices, the child is a necessary #Sacrifice. Their death and manipulation is believed to be a gateway to dark powers. The government is ushering
an agenda that destroys the family. There are documents and plans being strategically implemented to relinquish authority and control of your children! Your children are considered…Property Of The State.

Hitler was successful with a similar practice and program. This program was instrumental to his rise and success to power by way of propaganda. Children from ages ten to eighteen, during the 1920’s were targeted for “The Hitler Youth“. By 1933, membership was over 40,000. This number grew tremendously by 1933, to 5.4million. Enrollment became mandatory six years later (1939).

"Founded in 1926, the original purpose of the Hitler Youth was to train boys to enter the SA (Storm Troopers), a Nazi Party paramilitary formation."

Founded in 1926, the original purpose of the Hitler Youth was to train boys to enter the SA (Storm Troopers), a Nazi Party paramilitary formation.

These boys and girls enter our organizations [at] ten years of age, and often for the first time get a little fresh air; after four years of the Young Folk they go on to the Hitler Youth, where we have them for another four years . . . And even if they are still not complete National Socialists, they go to Labor Service and are smoothed out there for another six, seven months . . . And whatever class consciousness or social status might still be left . . . the Wehrmacht [German armed forces] will take care of that.
Adolf Hitler (1938)

The children were loyal and effective in gaining control and destroying families, making parents the enemy! Despite massive censorship during this period in Germany, educators introduced approved textbooks and literature that taught students “love for Hitler“, obedience to state authority, militarism, racism, and antisemitism. The initial purpose of the program was to train the children (boys) to enter the SA (Storm Troopers), a Nazi Party paramilitary formation.

Do not be fooled by theses guilt tactics. Using sexuality and innocence as a way to administer their destructive plans. Such is the case in Oakland, California, where the School District is strategically targeted for a “Gender Diversity” Program. There is no mistake with the demographics  being targeted by this “Gender-Free” Activist Group, Gender Spectrum.
Children as young as 5yrs of age or Kindergarten to High School Seniors are the groups target age. There have been many parents angered by this program, where few were made aware of the curriculum roll out.

Do not underestimate the power of sexuality, it’s use as a weapon and #TrojanHorse. There have been a lot of policies, laws and even standards in our social and technological lifestyle, that have been influenced by ways of sex and it’s industry.

Understand that the Dominant Society has a Committee Of Corrupt, committed to destruction and enslavement. Which is why it is imperative that citizens become aggressive towards protecting and preparing to wage war against the government’s assault.

You are responsible for researching and educating your family and communities. Never would the enemy teach one to be greater. Placing your youths’
fate the hands of demons…
Is imprisoning your future to the devil. – #GenderDiversity

Where does one begin?

As American as Apple Pie“? No. That would not fit here, because America, at least for the past week, has shown that Sweet Potato Pie is the new icon.

Since James Wright's review went viral, Walmart sold one pie per second for 72hours straight last weekend.

Since James Wright’s review went viral, Walmart sold one pie per second for 72hours straight last weekend.

Since Walmart’s release of the celebrity endorsed Sweet Potato Pie, sales were good, but it was not until the publication of a Video Review, produced by James Wright, on YouTube that within 24 hours after the video was posted on November 12, 2015, “sales data was showing a nationwide surge in pie purchases“, shared Walmart spokesman John Forrest Ales.
Due to the popularity Walmart had worked to restock it’s sweet potato pies after the viral video caused a massive surge in demand across the country.

The pie retails for $3.48. The viral video, made by now popular pitchman, James Wright, can possibly take responsibility for aiding in inflated sales of pies on eBay, recorded as much as $40!

Make no mistake, this is not an article looking to add to the hype, but to point out important perspectives and call out a wrong on Pattie Labelle‘s part.

Recently #TMZ’s cameraman catches Patti Labelle before entering a building and asks her about her success with her, endorsed, Sweet Potato Pie sales due to James Wright’s viral video review…

Patti Labelle adamantly takes full credit for the over a million dollars sales spike in less than a week, despite James Wright’s video review popularity.

I did it myself“, Patti affirms.

I was selling out pies before the guy did his wonderful video“, Patti explains.

Patti Labelle was able to express her regards for Mr. Wright’s singing ability and potential in that area.

He’s a wonderful singer and he’s just a wonderful guy”, she said.

Since James’ review went viral, Walmart sold one pie per second for 72 hours straight last weekend.
So did Patti really, “do it herself“? Clearly Patti is exaggerating and disregarding the power of “word of mouth” and more importantly, Black Purchase Power.

In 2013, Black Buying Power was projected to reach 1.1trillion dollars!

There are 43 million Melanoid Americans in the United States, 13.7 percent of the total population. The “Black” race is the second largest racial minority in the country. The median age is 32 and 47 percent are under 35 years of age.

Despite these impressive numbers and buying power most mainstream advertisers are not inclusive. They fail to include “Black“, Melanoid people in media and marketing plans and have underestimated the market size.

If we were to reminisce to the 1900’s, a neighborhood called Greenwood in Tulsa, Oklahoma was one of the most successful and wealthiest Melanoid communities in the United States.
Home to successful Black businessmen, affluent residents, restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, hospitals, banks, libraries, schools, law offices, private airplanes and a commuter bus system.

This was “Black Wall Street“, which could be today’s blueprint for Black Economics. Black Economics is essential to the rise and power of the Melanoid People. It is cases such as Walmart’s pies and the Missouri University “Black” students protests that set the precedence for how Black communities should be operating.

During the 1900’s, in Greenwood, Tulsa, Oklahoma, the dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community. Now a dollar leaves the Black community in 15 minutes.
This is terrifying to anyone who dreams of a better way for Melanoid people. Economic power is critical. Unfortunately, Patti Labelle’s situation is a snapshot of what happens a lot. Patti does not own the company that produces the sweet potato pies or will she profit from the success of it’s sales. Not in the manner as W. Galen Weston has. Instead her image is what is used to lure consumers.

These practices are not difficult to repeat.
What is difficult is gaining loyalty from the “Melaninated” Nations and when unity is achieved, maintaining consistency.
Above all, like the Dominant Society, the plans and actions of the Melaninated communities must be covert. The use of Social Media and other technological platforms are necessary, but with so much and many against the growth of Black Nations, stealthy actions would be vital to Black Economical Growth.

So as powerful as it is for the “Black Dollar” to circulate, it is equally as powerful for it to stall.
Weigh these thoughts when deciding what business you wish or wish not to support.

Lastly; one thing is for certain, Patti may have sold many pies but it sure ain’t better than my mama’s!

At the most recent G20 gathering in Antalya, Turkey – Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had shared intelligence with the other G20 member states. The intelligence revealed the 40 countries from which ISIS finances the majority of their terrorist activities. The list reportedly included a number of G20 countries. Putin, in many ways placed all members on notice. An act that should raise many questions. Such as; who is ISIS really? Who are the purchasers of this “Blood Oil“? Is this why there were limits on oil trade, which kept prices high?

Putin continued his address discussing how imperative it is to cease the funding to ISIS, lamenting on ending ISIS illegal oil trade.

I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” explained Putin

I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products,” he said.
“The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon,” Putin shares.

Some armed opposition groups consider it possible to begin active operations against IS with Russia’s support. And we are ready to provide such support from the air. If it happens it could become a good basis for the subsequent work on a political settlement,” says Putin.
We really need support from the US, European nations, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran,” the Russian president added.

It is said that if you want to know who is in control, “Follow the money“. Putin believed it is impossible to defeat without cutting its financing. This was the focus at the  Summit. So when one follows the money one trail leads to the Islamic State, which benefits from an estimated $50 million a month from selling crude from captured oilfields in Iraq and Syria. These findings are based on Iraqi intelligence and U.S. officials.

So who is ISIS? Israeli Secret Intelligence Service

On July, 20th 1990, C-SPAN aired an interview  with Brian Lamb, Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman, authors of the book “Every Spy A Prince“: The Complete History of Israel’s Intelligence Community. The book, based on one of Israel’s decorated spies who helped Israel win the six day War with Syria in 1967, describes how the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office officially refers to its subordinate organization “The Mossad” as the “Israeli Secret Intelligence Service,” or ISIS.

Israel has 3 major Intelligence Organizations. The first being the Mossad (in Hebrew it means Institute), it is their Foreign Espionage Arm, which would be comparable to the CIA. Then there is Aman, this is Israel’s Commanders of Military Intelligence. Aman would be the largest of Israel’s intelligence groups and considered the most important. Lastly; there is Shin Bet (Security Services), this is Israel’s domestic agency and would be comparable to the FBI. Out of the three agencies, Aman would be the most important. Some of their responsibilities are to survey their neighboring Arab Nations, gathering intelligence on their movements and armament. To sum, Aman would be one of the layers of defense to thwart and alert Israel of potential threats including war.

How important is Mossad, with such great responsibilities on the shoulders of Aman? Aman is overshadowed by the Mossad. This makes Mossad the second most important agency in Israel. It would seem as if they work co-dependently. If compared to the United State’s agencies, Aman would function similarly to the NSA and Mossad would be the CIA. Not to forget Shin Bet, the “ears on the concrete”. They work on terrorism prevention, political espionage and counter-terrorism on a domestic level.

When communicating with other Government Intelligence Agencies, according to the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office, they identify themselves as the “Israeli Secret Intelligence Service,” or ISIS.

Fast forward to today, and the US Government affirms that ISIS is an Islamic Terrorist group. Putin, at the G20 Summit in Turkey, declared that “ISIS is being funded by 40 countries”! ISIS Surprise

This would not be the first time agencies such as the CIA have had their hands in shaping, and training groups that would later be revealed as the next Terror Group; Al Qaeda, “an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.”

We encourage people to ask the right questions. Concerned one should be, when the narrative is always the same.

The scale of Justice seems to always be off – balance.

From the arrest process to court hearings. Many can argue that they never had a fair – day in court.
Let’s face it, America’s system of Justice, systematically is unfair to minorities. Though this article is not written to point out all of those cases, trust that one would not have a hard time in finding the disparity.

This is why it is important for people to be active and vigilant in their communities. Ensuring and demanding for actions that better serve their families and communities by way of voting and electing those that represent the “face” of the community and have a positive interest in it’s welfare.
These steps can easily tip the scale of justice, forcing changes in the current climate of the Nation’s racial and judicial injustices.

This is highlighted by the actions of a Louisville, Ky. Jefferson Circuit Court Judge; Olu Stevens.
Judge Stevens was displeased with the disproportionate number of black jurors serving in his court.

Last week, the proceedings of a drug trial were halted and the entire jury panel was dismissed. Jdg. Stevens called for a new jury group to be selected.

Jdg. Olu Stevens

Judge Stevens expressed,

The concern is that the panel is not representative of the community.

A new jury panel followed despite objections from both the defense and prosecutor.
This would not be Jdg. Stevens first time dismissing a jury because of it’s “misrepresentation” or disproportionate number of minorities.

These actions have solicited the involvement of the Supreme Court, where it is going to determine whether the judge is abusing his power.

On Nov. 18th 2014, Jdg. Stevens felt it was, “troublesome”, that a 13-member jury chosen for a theft trial ended up with no black jurors. He would dismiss the panel at the request of a defense attorney.

Judge Stevens shared,

There is not a single African-American on this jury and (the defendant) is an African-American man, I cannot in good conscious go forward with this jury.”

The next day a new jury panel was selected.

“Jefferson County has long had a problem with minorities being underrepresented on local juries. Several black defendants have complained over the years that they were convicted by an all-white jury – not of their peers.

The Racial Fairness commission – a group made up of local judges, lawyers and citizens – has studied the issue for years, monitored the make-up of jury panels and found them consistently lacking in minorities.”

As Appeals Court Judge, Denise Clayton, explains,

Based on population the panel should be at least 21 percent African-American“.

Jdg. Clayton continues, sharing a previous panel selection case (October 12, 2015), where the percentage was 14.

So we’re not really hitting the numbers that we need to…“, concluded Clayton

Jdg. Stevens, rightfully, has shaken the courts and is forcing attorneys to be responsible.
In an interesting fashion, Jefferson County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and Attorney General asked the Kentucky Supreme Court to look at the issue and see if Jdg. Stevens has the authority to dismiss jury panels “because of a lack of minorities”.

Should judges take it upon themselves to try and ensure a more representative jury?

What is the current relationship between Citizens and Civil Servants (Police)?

Is it fair to say that both are on edge? Are communities being protected or patroled?

Police Officers are the Civil Servants of their communities. There are a full range of duties and responsibilities that are not limited to; aide, protection of physical, private and public property. This has been skewed through time, but The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that police officers at all levels of the government have no duty to protect the citizens of this country.
It is the job of police officers to investigate crimes and arrest criminals.

Their role is important, challenging and dangerous at times. It is imperative that the relationship between Citizens and Civil Servants improve. The Police Officer is the “Frontline” of their community that he/she serves. Their role could easily escalate to protecting the citizens from a tyrannical government, a stance that would require trust and cooperation from both sides.
So it is not surprising that today’s Police are being trained that the Citizen is the enemy.
That each encounter is a potential threat. We see this through the actions of the police and the horrifying results of their interactions with the “everyday” man, woman and child. The countless lives being taken of the unarmed in non – life threatening situations.

Which is why it is important, but also the responsibility of the People, to govern their community and command their sworn officer’s of the law to abide by the law and hold them accountable when they fail to do so.

This is what took place in Boston, MA – late September (2015). From a video shared on YouTube, September 18th 2015, a Boston Police Officer attempted to arrest a woman on a commuter bus. This happened in Dudley Square (Shopping Area). The woman was being arrested, allegedly, for petty theft.
From what is seen in the video, the officer attempted to detain the woman. The woman began to resist, several times swinging, opened and closed fisted. This aggravated the officer, who immediately drew his gun against the unarmed woman.
This alarmed many passengers, who were already filming the incident as it was unfolding.
What happened soon after galvanized the current climate between Citizens and Civil Servants. Several Witnesses ordered for the Police Officer to drop his weapon. They are heard assuring the officer that the woman was not able to flee and she pose no real threat. After a slight stand-off and direct demands, the officer “begrudgingly holstered his weapon“.
The passengers diffused the situation and pleaded for both, the officer and the woman to “Relax” and “Chill“. Another display of Community in control was when the witnesses reassured the woman of her safety by telling her…”We’re here!”.

These actions speaks volumes to the current climate of the Country and it’s lost trust and attitude towards the Law Enforcement.

The woman would later be arrested, without further incident, after several more officers arrived to assist.

Americans must understand that they too have a responsibility for their fellow citizens. The People must be equally as vigilant to assure the safety, for themselves, each other and their police.

They have been called “Hoverboards“, Segways and by the definition of the Metropolitan Police of the UK, “Self-Balancing Scooters“.
They have become popular overnight, worldwide, these boards have have found their way on side streets, parks, playgrounds, malls and even airports!
The surge of these boards are partially due to their affordability, convenience and what so may say, a satisfaction of a past fantasy. Let’s face it , it was 26years ago “Doc” Dr. Emmett Brown (Christoper Lloyd) promised us one! Him and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), in the movie Back To The Future II, traveled to the “Future” of “October, 21, 2015”, where the “Hoverboard” existed! It would seem as if it was prophesized.

This all means nothing to the MPS who have just announced that the “Self-Balancing Scooter” is illegal to ride in public in the UK.
Real-Time MPS Tweet
MPS Tweet

This has also been a discussion with the MPS on Twitter in real-time as well. Their justification for this lies within the lines of the Highway Act 1835, under section 72.

The Crown Prosecution Service have supported that “it is against the law to ride them on any public road, including the pavement, and that they should only be used on private land.” This is the language written under section 72 of the Highway Act 1835.

The MPS have also provided, through their Twitter, the CPS, FAQ:

  • 1.”I have a self-balancing scooter and I want to ride in on the public road, is it legal for road use?”

    No. Vehicles must be approved via ECWVTA or MSVA in order to be licensed and registered. Self-balancing scooters would not currently meet the requirements of these schemes so are not legal for road use.

    2.”I have been riding a self-balancing scooter on the public foot-way (pavement) outside my house, have I committed an offence?”

    Yes. It is an offence under section 72 of the Highway Act 1835 to ride or drive a vehicle on the pavement. It is only an offence under this Act in England and Wales. In Scotland it is an offence under section 129(5) of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984.

    3.”Where can I ride a self-balancing scooter?”

    You can only ride an unregistered self-balancing scooter on land which is private property and with the landowner’s permission. The Department for Transport would advise that appropriate safety clothing should be worn at all times.

    4.”I have seen people using electric bicycles on the road without registration. Why are they permitted but a self-balancing scooter is not?”

    Bicycles are covered by different rules to those applying to self balancing scooters. Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles must meet the requirements of the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles Regulations 1983. Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles that conform to these regulations are considered to be pedal cycles and as such are allowed to use cycle facilities such as cycle lanes on the road and cycle tracks away from the road which other powered vehicles are prohibited from using. A self-balancing scooter does not meet these requirements as it cannot be pedaled.

Clearly this encroachment upon the people does not create a warm relationship between the police and it’s community. It seems to be the “modus operandi” of the police and government, another action to seize control and in their words…MONEY! Not once has the mention of safety been an issue, but the MPS did “tweet”, “It’s because they’re technically motor vehicles & therefore have to be registered, licensed & insured to ride on public roads.

"It's because they're technically motor vehicles & therefore have to be registered, licensed & insured to ride on public roads."

“It’s because they’re technically motor vehicles & therefore have to be registered, licensed & insured to ride on public roads.”

So in true “Big Brother” fashion, like a game of chess…The police and the UK government have made their move.
It will be interesting to see what leads from this ban and the impact it will have on the sale and cost of these “Hoverboards”.
So if you are in the UK and own one…remember walk…don’t ride!

These are questions that many may have, and often questions such as these are answered with the most benign response, propagandized filler or obvious lies.
How refreshing would it be, to have a Reporter, “Give it to you straight”?
Johnathan Pie does just that! Here (Spoof Reporter) Johnathan Pie delivers the news on the lawn with the view of the Palace Of Westminster in focus, during a familiar day in London.
Bothered by the weather conditions, the reporter questions the studio’s need to capture the reporting in this state and suggests for an “in-studio” recording. This is where one is led to believe he is insulted by a Studio Official. This angers the reporter and persuades him to…
Deliver “The f*..ing News!”

Remember, this is a spoof, but as my father always said…”We often joke the truth!“.

When “They” ask a question and are not prepared for the truth, this is the result!

Cheers Mate!
