What will we leave the children of tomorrow to read about our generation?
There will be contemporary history to read.
My Life From U S Coast Guard to U S Tiger.
Judge London, since not all readers may already have an Amazon account, would you please cut and paste a short example from the text of My Life From U S Coast Guard to U S Tiger? Whereas we are facing more slavery sprouting up in Libya, perhaps a couple of lines from your book to show where the weak links were that enabled the slave market to explode or how the people sold can get their liberty restored to live a free men and women once again.
Thank you for suggesting this book to http://www.TheTrumpTimes.com readers! I appreciate your time and energy in documenting your experiences for the future generations.
Dear Cherylynn, you are truly a gentle person, a lady , and a scholar. Your words are like golden apples in a pitcher of silver. I pray that your words would fly on the wings of an Eagle straight from your mouth to God’s ear. My life has been a fight for the Right without question or pause, sometimes an impossible dream. I eagerly await your next article.
Dear Cherylynn, your article is very informative. It covers the subject very well. One of the Unintended Consequences of murdering Colonel Muammar Qadaffi was the rise of slavery in Libya. That was another bad Foreign Policy decision of the Obama/Hillary Administration. Hillary laughed and said “We came, We saw,He died. Hahaha”. Anyone aware of the enmity between North Africans and Sub-Equatorial Africans, would not be surprised at the rise of slavery under the circumstances you described. Libyans consider themselves as Arabs and not Africans. Arabs have always trafficked in slaves.
Judge London, you are living proof of how America’s 1965 desegregation of the military more than paid off. What a powerful story you have. I look forward to reading the book in its entirety.
I may note that although you suffered prejudice pre-1965, said denial of rights heightened your empathy to fight for the rights of women in the military about 20 years later in the 1980’s. This book of yours should be offered as a school text book for essays and group discussions.
Thank you for sharing a bit of your fine literary work here on http://www.TheTrumpTimes.com !
Mrs. Clinton has stopped laughing now that she is looking for another job. Success is the sweetest revenge!
Under the wisdom of President Trump, America has once again taken the lead in condemning slavery and reaffirmed the US Constitution 13th Amendment’s commitment to Equal Protection of the Civil Rights, including prohibition of involuntary servitude. On December 29, 2017 the White House stated: “During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we recommit ourselves to eradicating the evil of enslavement. Human trafficking is a modern form of the oldest and most barbaric type of exploitation. It has no place in our world. This month we do not simply reflect on this appalling reality. We also pledge to do all in our power to end the horrific practice of human trafficking that plagues innocent victims around the world.” read more at https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/president-donald-j-trump-proclaims-january-2018-national-slavery-human-trafficking-prevention-month/
God Bless America, land of the Free!
Yes indeed, Amen. America was chosen by God to lead the World. A leader leads from the front, not from behind as our 44th President was fond of saying between his apologies for American exceptionalism. If the Main Stream Media had more talented and responsible journalists like you, America and the World would have a true picture of the state of the World under President Trump’s leadership.
EXCERPT, as FOLLOWS:
Trying to write a book about my life is like trying to describe the landscape by looking out the window of a moving train. The events continue to unfold faster than one can describe them. My life is a work in progress. For this reason I have decided to look at my life in phases that have a clearly defined beginning and an end. In this book I intend to describe that part of my life that was shaped by my involvement in the Martial Arts. IN A NUT SHELL I, London Eugene Livingston Steverson retired from the United States Coast Guard in 1988 as a Lieutenant Commander (LCDR). Later, I retired from the Social Security Administration (SSA) as the Senior Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in the Office of Disability Appeals and Review (ODAR) Downey, California. In 1964, I was one of the first two African Americans to receive an Appointment as a Cadet to the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. I graduated in 1968.
After two years at sea on an Icebreaker, the USCGC Glacier (WAGB-4), and another two years as a Search and Rescue Operations Officer in the 17th Coast Guard District Juneau, Alaska, I was appointed Chief of the newly formed Minority Recruiting Section in the Office of Personnel at Coast Guard Headquarters, 7th and D Street, SW, in Washington, DC. My primary duty was to recruit Black High School graduates for the Coast Guard Academy. This was my passion, so I set about this in a most vigorous manner. I have written several books concerning Military Justice, famous Courts-martial Cases, and Social Security Disability Determination Cases. I am a retired member of the New York State Bar Association, The Association of The Bar of The City of New York, and The Tennessee Bar Associations. A Presidential Executive Order issued by President Harry Truman had desegregated the armed forces in 1948, but the military academies lagged far behind in officer recruiting. President John F. Kennedy specifically challenged the Coast Guard Academy to increase appointments to qualified Black American high school students. I was one of the first Black High School students to be offered such an appointment in 1964. I had a Black classmate from New Jersey, Kenny Boyd. We would become known as "The Kennedy Cadets", because the pressure to recruit us originated with President John F. Kennedy. On June 4, 1968, I graduated from the Coast Guard Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and a commission as an Ensign in the U.S. Coast Guard. My first duty assignment out of the Academy was in Antarctic research logistical support. In July 1968 I reported aboard the Coast Guard Cutter (CGC) Glacier (WAGB-4), an icebreaker operating under the control of the U.S. Navy. I served as a deck watch officer and head of the Marine Science Department. I traveled to Antarctica during two patrols from July 1968 to August 1969, supporting the research operations of the National Science Foundation's Antarctic Research Project in and around McMurdo Station. In 1974, while still an active duty member of the Coast Guard, I entered The National Law Center of The George Washington University. I graduated in 1977 with a Juris Doctor of Laws Degree. I worked as a Law Specialist in the 12th Coast Guard District Office, San Francisco, California and as an Assistant U. S. Attorney for the collection of Civil Penalties under the Federal Boating Safety Act from 1979 to 1982. As Assistant District Legal Officer, I was required to defend as well as prosecute military members who had been charged with violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Occasionally I was asked to represent other officers in administrative actions involving sexual harassment and discrimination. One such case was the Case of Christine D. Balboni Ensign (ENS) Balboni was one of the first female graduates of the Academy, Class of 1981. She filed the first case of Sexual Harassment in the military.

Re:Trump Demands Publisher Stop Release of Book
Judas betrayed his Master with a kiss. Brutus used a sword. Bannon uses a book. The Pen is mightier than the sword. Jesus had his Judas, and Caesar had his Brutus. Now, Trump has his Bannon. Thank you Mr President. It is about time someone with some guts put an end to this Tom-foolery. If they publish a book with deliberate lies and falsehoods, the impact is immediate. A retraction or an apology in six months or a year would be ineffectual in undoing the damage. It is better to nip it in the bud. Bravo, Mr President. I salute you and your brilliant strategy. Stand and fight. Let the chips fall on Bannon and Wolfe.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was a Democratic money-laundering cash cow hiding in plain sight until there was a fight for succession of the Director. It was the brain child of Fauxcahontas, Elizabeth Warren before she ran for the Senate in 2012. It was not subject to the congressional appropriations process. It violated the Constitution, which gave Congress the control of the Government's purse strings. It was funded by the Federal Reserve. The money was unaccounted for. It was set up so that Director did not have to be confirmed by the Senate. Then the Director was given unilateral authority to set fines and enforce a broad range of consumer protection financial laws. President Barack Obama created the CFPD in 2010 as part of his Crime Syndicate, masquerading as an Administration. Some fines were as high as a $100 million penalty on Wells Fargo in 2016. The money was recycled back to The Democratic National Committee, Democratic labor unions, among others. It was designed to give the Democrats an inexhaustible source of money for political purposes that was not limited by Campaign Finance Laws. This was all very crooked and brilliant. Thank God President smelled the rat and appointed his own Director and challenged the CFPD's constitutionality in court. Obama's Director, Richard Cordray tried to appoint his own successor, Leandra English, who was a Deputy Director. President Trump selected OMB Director Mick Mulvaney as Acting Director until a permanent leader can be nominated and confirmed. Chalk up another win for President Trump and the American People. Making America Great Again!
Re: FE FI FO FUM JEFF SESSIONS SMELLS SOME BLOOD
Jeff Sessions has been Missing In Action (MIA) for a year. Are we now to believe that he has had his own Damascus Road Conversion? I sure hope so.
I sat through every minute of the Watergate Hearings while attending law school. I was glued to the TV during the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings. I video-taped the Rodney King Trials, and the OJ Trial.
Now, you are teasing me with the possibility of a spectacular history making investigatory prosecutorial legal Donnybrook.
If it happens, historians will write volumes about it, film makers will make movies about it, unborn children will study it in law schools and police academies.
We have just survived a silent coup. Make no mistake about it, it was a coup d’etat. It was 1914 and the French Revolution played out on American soil.
If we get a chance to investigate, and prosecute the ring leaders, we will give the World a lesson in the superiority of our Constitutional System of Government and the power of the Anglo-American Judicial System to give the American people greatest freedoms, to protect them from evil insurgents, and provide a standard of living above any other on Earth. And we will have done this without blood shed, for the most part.

Re:UNITED AIR LIES
Try, if you can, just for a moment, put yourself in the skin of Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee of Texas. Walk just one mile in her shoes. I think I understand what she is doing, and where she is coming from. It is payback.
She is carrying one awfully big chip on her shoulder. She is a very proud and well-educated woman, with a BA from Yale University and Law Degree from University of Virginia.She was a municipal judge from 1987 to 1990. Now, she is angry. And, incredibly sees herself as a victim. She apparently still feels the sting of “Separate But Equal”, and the days of “For Whites Only” bathrooms and water fountains. Now, she wants to be “First”.
In 1994, she was elected to Congress from heavily Democratic, black-majority district. Her constituents like it when she struts her stuff.
In July 2010 at the NAACP national convention, she compared the Tea Party to the KKK. She said in January 2011 that repealing the health care law would be in violation of the Constitution. After all,Obamacare was the Crowing Jewel of the great Barack Obama. He could stop the rise of the oceans and eliminate Global Warming.
Shelia Jackson Lee is not unique. She may have been the First Coming of today’s Snowflakes.
Does anyone remember when Oprah Winfry was outraged that a Department Store would not close the entire store to the public so that she could shop alone? She’s a Billionaire. After all, didn’t they know who she was?
Oprah said she was the victim of racism on a trip to Switzerland when a shop assistant refused to show her a handbag because it was “too expensive.”
These rich and powerful people, Oprah Winfrey and Jackson Lee, might both see themselves victims of racism and say they experienced what ‘people of black or brown color experience daily’.
What a World we are living in!
Can’t we all just get along?
Re:When Judges Break the Law, Should Judges Go to Jail?
Rk Horton said:
Yes INDEED judges should go to jail and lose their pensions as well. They should be held to a higher standard. Noblesse oblige. Just as Andrew McCabe is trying to wait out his problems so that he can retire off the system, any official who is engaged in wrong doing loses that perk. It would be insanity to try to separate the fact that he “worked all those years” and the fact that he manipulated a Presidential election. He loses his good deeds and his reputation for breaking the law he was hired to uphold.
Yes, RK, I could not agree with you more. You make a good point when you say that Andrew McCabe is trying to wait out his problems so that he can retire on a Life-time Government Pension. I would have more sympathy for McCabe if he were at the beginning of his career. But he is old, seasoned, and thoroughly bent. His transgressions are multiplied ten fold. He more than anyone appreciated the gravity of his treason. His final actions cancel out any good he may done, if indeed he ever did anything worthy of praise. Considering the horrible deprivations to which he was prepared to subject the American people under a cruel un-Democratic, Socialistic, One World Far-Left Hillary Clinton Government, he would be lucky to escape Capital Punishment. Make no doubt about, they were prepared to turn America into the next Venezuela. Venezuela is rich in gold and oil. Under socialist Marxist Rule, the people have been reduced to eating their house pets because they have no food. Moreover, they have to beg Colombia for toilet paper. In 2016 consumer prices rose 800%, and the economy contracted by 18.6%. Due to a lack of nutrition 75 percent of the population lost an average of 20 pounds. Food rationing is so severe that Venezuelans spend all day waiting in lines for anything they can get to eat. This is what McCabe and his ilk were pushing for. Can you imagine such a future for your children and grand children? Thank God for Donald trump and the silent majority of American people.
Laura Cotter said:
Thank you, Laura. Yes, Sally is correct. And I would add that in America there is equal justice under the Law, for the most part. The biggest and the best thing we have going for us is our Constitution. It gives us Constitutional Rights that money cannot buy in any other country in the World. The greatest of these is our “Presumption of Innocence until proven guilty”. Our Constitutional form of Government and our Legal System are unique and unsuited for any other people on Earth. Our Constitution only work for free, moral, Christian people, who can be trusted to govern themselves. Sharia Law and other authoritarian forms of governance are completely incompatible with our Constitutional System. We came close to loosing that during the Obama Administration. Our Life Expectancy went down and our freedoms were whittled away. Free people cannot be forced by their Government to buy anything they do not need or want to buy. Some evil people and people who do not share the American Dream have wormed their way into the fabric of our society. We must be forever vigilant and get rid of them whenever we identify them.
Sally Becker said:
Reply: Sally, you are absolutely correct. If a Deplorable breaks the Law, judgement is usually swift and sure. Punishment can often be quite harsh. You probably cannot name one Deplorable who is “too rich to prosecute”, like Hillary and some other well-connected people in our Society. Like the banks, Wall Street Firms, and Fortune 500 companies that Obama thought were too “Big to Fail”, they do not appear to be subject to the same rules as us DEPLORABLES. But Judges are held accountable, and they are held to a higher standard. When they transgress the Law, they are held accountable. That is one of the beautiful things about America. Things got out of control for a little while, but President Trump is straightening things out and taking our country back. He is Making America Great Again.
Re:McCain Missing Tax Reform Vote a Fitting End to a Helter-Skelter Career
Reply:Helter-Skelter seems a fitting and appropriate characterization.One can only wonder how McCain would have voted on the Tax Reform Bill. His reputation as a “Mr. Flip-Flop” and a “Maverick” do not inspire me to believe that McCain would have voted with the Republicans. Not one Democrat voted for The Tax Reform Bill. If McCain had sided with his Democratic friends, Trump may have been denied a historic Legislative victory. Also, the fact that he voted not to repel Obamacare when he was called upon to support President Trump, gives one even greater reason to be glad he was not there for the vote. I believe he has let a personal vendetta with President Trump effect his judgement as a Senator representing the citizens of Arizona.
Trump said McCain was a hero only because he was a POW and survived the Hanoi Hilton. For a man like McCain, that stings deeply. McCain was a joker, a wild-card, and almost the Anchor Man in his 1958 Annapolis Class. He graduated 894 out of 899. He appears to have been trying his whole life to out perform his father and grandfather, who were both Navy Admirals.
McCain’s inexplicable involvement in the Russia-Dossier Saga really offends me as a Republican and an American Patriot. He sent his personal aide to England to get a certified copy of the Steele Opposition Research Report; he personally delivered a copy to James Comey at the FBI; and, he is rumored to have leaked it to the press. That appears to be above and beyond the call of duty, even for a Spoiler, and Maverick.
The Evil that men do lives long after they are gone; the Good is often interred with their bones. McCain has done some good things, but I would prefer to keep him at arm’s length.
Re: Show Your True Colors
Reply: Thank you Steven Kyro. You are in the majority. I am proud to call you My Fellow American. If all Americans were as smart and patriotic as you, they would recognize how blessed we are to have Donald Trump as our President. The alternative would have been a nightmare. Few people seem to understand how corrupt the Deep State was and is. Their allegiance to Hillary is proof enough that they do not love America and are prepared to abandon the Country of our Forefathers for some New World Order with no borders, culture, or Faith in God. We dodged a Silver Bullet. God Bless America, President Trump, and all right thinking Americans everywhere.
Re: The Roy Moore Election Prediction Nobody Was Waiting For
Reply: The Verdict is in. Smear works. Slander wins. If you slime your opponent and spends enough money, it will get you there. Without a doubt, the Winning Formula appears to have been: smear, slander and slime. The Media Maelstrom around this election created the Perfect Storm against Judge Roy Moore. Not just the Main Stream Media, but also Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel and other Water Carriers for the Democratic Left were able to hang an Albatross around the neck of Judge Moore and he could not shake it loose. They labeled him “Child Molester”, and it stuck. It appears that the Left has a new strategy. Labeling someone a Racist does not work as well as it did. The new tactic is to label them a Sexist, or Child Molester, or Sexual Predator. That seems to work. And we can look forward to more of it. Every Republican running for any State-wide of National Office will have to be squeeky clean going back 40 years or more, or Opposition Researchers will scour your past and come up with someone who will be more than happy to heap dirt on your character for 30 Pieces of Silver. As I understand it, the Term for this Senate Seat is only 2 years. Then another election will be held to find a replacement for Jeff Session. Well, fasten your seat-belts. Look out below. Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead. Batten down the hatches. We are in for rough weather in the next 4, 8, and 16 years. That is my prediction for the Donald Trump and the Ivanka Trump Dynasties to run their course in American Presidential Politics. We will live in Interesting Times, as the Chinese Proverb terms it. God Help Us, and God Bless America.
Re: Thank God Donald trump Is Commander In Chief
Reply: The Cultural War has been going on for years, perhaps since the 1960s. This Culture War has escalated into an un-Civil War. It is a Cold War, but could easily become a Hot War. Shots have been fired. James Hodgkinson on June 14, 2017 opened fire on Republican members of Congress while practicing for the annual Congressional Charity Baseball Game in Alexandria, Virginia. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise has returned to work after a miracle recovery. The extreme political Left had declared war on traditional America. Police Officers have been assassinated while sitting in their cars. Riots have broken out in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore , Maryland based on lies and Fake News Stories. The “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” lie was publicized in Main Stream Media (MSM), worn on NBA Basketball players’ jerseys and legitimized by high level Democratic politicians and Members of Congress. And MSM continues to assail POTUS with ridiculous allegations of Russian interference in the last Election, and lies about sexually assaulting women he may have helped in the past. Journalism has become “JIHAD”! We cannot get news outside of Twitter. Enough is Enough! We must Drain The swamp and Take Our Country Back.
