America's Promise



inserted in my blogpost on Iran today, 10/12/2018:

Field McConnell EXPLAINED WHY explosive-filled drones were what hit the WTC bldgs, not real Boeings.  I emphasized to Field that Mike Pompeo's company, which was probably a CIA front, MADE drones and John Bolton, who was Undersecretary of Firearms and Weapons in 2001, OBVIOUSLY SUPPLIED THE MILITARY EXPLOSIVES.  Yet Field claimed he was being loyal to President Trump no matter what.  So I unfollowed him, after realizing that Trump was a fake, a fraud, a bully. 

Political shills from both parties were trying to blame Colin Powell for bringing in military explosives on 9/11/2001.  I was very angry!  Colin Powell would have been our best President ever, and they want to blame him - who no doubt kept our country from going to war after the Americans who mass-murdered 3,000 people on 9/11/01 - tried to get us to go to war with Middle East, when they did not plan this mass murder - Americans did!  And that includes the Jewish Zionists who were a big help; Hillary Clinton is a Rothschild Jewish Zionist NWO Illuminati, and milked our country for everything she could!  

I am so sure USA would have gone to war with the Middle East had it not been Hon. Colin Powell confronting the ones who probably ordered this mass murder in NYC and at the Pentagon.  So the smear campaign on Colin Powell became more and more aggressive!  Colin Powell submitted his resignation and GW Bush ASKED him to stay until he won the election for a second term - fully knowing that if he had not, most likely he would not have won!  

Thank you, Hon. Colin Powell, if you see this!  I knew you were a great man since the day I had the pleasure to meet you when I was Secretary of the Command Staff of the DivArty HQ!  Several NCOs and officers said that they wanted you to run for President.  I would have loved to see you and your family at the White House!  It's okay, I am sure we are all in agreement we are glad you and your family have survived the political criminals in Washington.  How disgusted I was when Hillary Clinton tossed away your great Doctrines you set forth when Secretary of State.  I also know you would never say anything publically which would bring disrepute to the Office of President and uphold the many oaths you have taken (including administering the law, since you have a J.D. on top of everything else!)

Colin Powell is why education and affiliation are the key to success.  Have a good support system at work; and know what you are doing.  inserted 10/12/2018

AMERICA’S PROMISE




America’s Promise Documentaryhttp://influencefilmclub.com/film/american-promise/?gclid=CjwKCAjw1ZbaBRBUEiwA4VQCIX1KYFA0QauvvmaZTXD0iuBe7lKFBTuMWxnMT-8YTjoU54CkL645TxoCuGsQAvD_BwE 


Do you know a young person who is passionate about education or youth development? Is there a young adult at your organization who inspires and motivates others? Have you come across a young man or woman who wants to sharpen his or her leadership skills?  
If so, they may be a great candidate to become one of our America’s Promise youth leaders!
We’re looking for two young people, ages 16-22, to serve a two-year term on our Board of Directors or as a member of the Alliance Trustees. They’ll attend annual meetings in Washington, act as a full voting member of the leadership body, and play a valuable role in shaping our strategic direction. Those selected will serve through spring 2020. 
Here’s what a former youth board member had to say about the importance of youth leadership: 
Too many leaders, teachers, and politicians don’t know what we actually go through, what we’re actually up against, or what we need to succeed in life. They don’t know what we’re feeling or what our dreams are, that we may even be afraid to dream. I want more people in power to know what it’s like to walk a mile in our shoes. Maybe then they would know what direction to take us in, how to help us find a different path in life.

*Increased likelihood of future involvement with the criminal justice system 
*Higher levels of school violence and antisocial behavior

     (note, I am not sure if that is exactly what the slide shows)
