May 11 & June 2, 1878 - Reds make two assassination attempts against Kaiser Wilhelm I
Just days before the important international conference is due to take place in Berlin, two assassination attempts are made against Kaiser Wilhelm I. On May 11, 1878, a Red named Emil Max Hodel fires shots at the Emperor and his daughter as they travel in their carriage. Hodel is captured and then executed in August.
Three weeks later, another Red named Karl Nobiling fires a gun at the Emperor. The 82 year old Kaiser is wounded, but he survives. Nobiling then shoots himself, and dies 3 months later. The New World Order's secret war against The Three Emperors League, and all of Europe's Christian Monarchs, is really starting to heat up.
There has been a lot of controversy with what Trump said in Finland regarding Russian meddling in our elections. Trump stated, “I don’t see any reason why it would be Russia.” Hours ago, President Trump corrected himself and said that he meant to say, “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia. First of all, what Trump wants is peace with Russia (the only country that can match America’s nuclear power). There are so many issues that can be solved with Russia’s help such as the problems with Syria and Iran. In my opinion everyone is making too much of this. Trump either messed up or realized he was wrong. I mean come on. We all remember when Obama said that we had 57 states. That is much worse than anything Trump has ever said. Also, many Democrats have mocked people for even suggesting that Russia was a threat or that Russia would interfere in our elections. The Democratic Party has become the party of hypocrisy. What a disgrace!

Blind Justice II. Acrylic on newsprint. Finger painted. ...
This is the Second piece in a series on my experience navigating the landscape of the present administration. The first piece in this series came at the height of the Pruitt scandals. I was enraged and hopeful of a positive outcome. I pasted together sorry headlines to frame my rage and felt emboldened. This new piece comes after returning to the states to learn not only of the inhumane, dumbfounding child cruelty which this administration has enacted across the country, but also who is willing to stand proudly in the shadow of that great evil and defend it. I am disillusioned and horrified. The blindfold has ripped off as this administration’s sorry “justice” and “rule of law” has made itself known. The White House reels with cockroaches, unafraid of the light of day. The blindfold has been ripped off and we are no longer exonerated by the privilege of ignorance. These are dark times. What the third and final piece in my series will reveal is a mystery to me. For in the mix of dumbstruck horror in this piece, there is a faint hint of exhaustion burrowed in the eye of this contorted face.
Originally posted on @_throughryanseyes 07/08/18 The word Hispanic should not come out of this man’s mouth unless he’s talking about ending the inhumane separation of immigrant families and the reunification of the over 2,000 (and I say over 2,000 because the government doesn’t actually have an accurate count, just that 3000 is the absolute max, which is, insane in itself). The fact that he’s sitting here trying to deflect attention from the humanitarian crisis his own policies created might be his most disgusting deflection yet. Thailand has moved heaven and Earth to rescue 12 boys trapped inside of a cave and reunite them with their families, and God bless them for doing so, but our government who is at fault for the separation of THOUSANDS of families has done nothing but blame cast and deflect, fail to answer simple questions, and continue to demonize immigrants while doing little to resolve the situation. Last week they said they knew where all of the kids were and where their parents were. This week they’re apparently doing DNA testing to figure out who belongs to who, showing that they actually have no fucking clue. The entire situation is a catastrophe and I am just beyond fed up and angry that this presidents sits and tries to spin anything and everything to his political advantage. It’s disgusting. Grow up and do something about this now @realdonald_trump #endfamilydetentionnow#endfamilyseparation#immigration#trump#donaldtrump#politics#republicans#ice#america#stopdeflecting#dosomething#shutup
Originally posted on @_throughryanseyes 07/09/18 With the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court it seems like women’s rights, and specifically reproductive rights, will be under siege for the foreseeable future, and I just want all the women out there who fear their reproductive rights may now be in jeopardy to know that I will always stand with you. The subject of abortion is a deeply personal one that I don’t think anyone takes lightly. Some of the people I am closest to have starkly different views than my own, including my own sister - and that’s okay. Her views are guided by her faith. Mine are guided by my interpretation and allegiance to our Constitution. In America our opposing rights to believe as we wish are both protected. To be honest, I’ve never really felt men should have a say in women’s reproductive rights anyway, given that there is not a single law dictating what a man can do with his body that does not also apply to what a woman can do with hers, and so having the reverse be true and decided by men has always seemed misguided. Abortion law, and the debate surrounding it, in the United States has always struck me as one of the last stubborn antiquated vestiges of our country’s patriarchal past, a past we need not revisit. Yet, even with my belief that men should have no say on the issue I realize that now is not the time to be apathetic or indifferent. So I want to make it clear that I believe in a woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body, that - she being the most informed and vested - should be the ultimate arbiter in that most personal of decisions, and that our Constitution’s 14th Amendment affirmation of personal liberty and equal protection under the law protects that choice. I have marched with you, I will stand by you, and I will continue to fight for your rights as women. #womensrights#abortion#roevwade#genderequality#women#supremecourt#trump#politics#democrat#republican#kavanaugh#republican#liberal#conservative#plannedparenthood#democracy#electionsmatter#vote#votelikeyourrightsdependonit#aclu#america#protectroe#prochoice
Originally posted on @_throughryanseyes 06/27/18 Just in case it wasn’t clear enough before Justice Kennedy decided to retire from the Supreme Court today, it’s time to get our shit together. President Trump is not messing around, and as clueless as he may seem, he is, at an astonishing pace, reshaping America, destroying our values, and obliterating our reputation one tweet at a time. So much of the positive progress we’ve made over the past few decades is now at risk. So we need to get our heads out of the clouds thinking that some Republicans with backbones will stand up to Trump, or that true conservatives will reach a breaking point and abandon their antithetical savior. If the past two years have shown us anything, it’s that it’s not happening. Not now, not ever. The Republican party is now solely the party of Trump and there is no limb too small for them to not blindly follow him out on. So that leaves it to us Democrats. Which means, we need to get to work, not just at the national level, but at the local and state level. We need to get out in our communities and help people understand the stakes of this election. We need to get people registered to vote. We need to make it personal. We need to use our relationships and leverage our connections within our networks to get people involved and show them the light of truth and facts. We need to tell our stories about why this election is so personal to us. Whatever it is that matters to you, talk about it. Talk about it to people you know, people you don’t know, to anyone who will listen. Whatever you do, don’t stop. Don’t sit this one out. Now is not the time for cynicism, or doubt, to be disheartened or apathetic. There is too much at stake, we need you. We need all of you in 2018. So let’s get to work. Onward. #2018#election#democrat#democrats#america#vote#citizen#unitedstates#letsgo#letsdothis#dontstop#hope#keepgoing#onward#liberal#electionsmatter#trump#donaldtrump#politics#values#equality#women#diversity
