"Coded By Race!"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Trump

"Fred Trump, chair, 27-year-old Donald Trump, president) charged with "violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968.""

"Donald Trump, then a candidate for presidency of the United States, denied that his father had been arrested, or that he had been in the KKK!"


Trump had begun a career in home construction and sales. The development company was incorporated as E. Trump & Son in 1927, and grew to build and manage single-family houses in Queens, barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast, and more than 27,000 apartments in New York City.
Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee for wartime profiteering (1954), and by the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division for civil rights violations (1973). According to The New York Times and The Washington Post, Trump's reputation as a landlord inspired a critical song by tenant and folk singer, Woody Guthrie.

Friedrich Trump's name was incorrectly recorded as Trumpf on the passenger list of his ship when he immigrated to the USA. Britt Peterson of The Boston Globe reports, based on the Blair biography, that the family had changed the spelling from the ancestral Drumpf, sometime during the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648).

Frederick Christ Trump was born in the Bronx on October 11, 1905.Trump was one of three children of German immigrants Elizabeth (née Christ) and Frederick Trump. He had a younger brother John and an older sister Elizabeth Trump Walters (1904–1961).

On Memorial Day in 1927, the Ku Klux Klan marched in Queens to protest that "Native-born Protestant Americans" were being "assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City". Fred Trump was one of seven men who were arrested that day "on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so."

In 2016, Vice magazine reported on their investigation of earlier newspaper clippings and found that Trump was the only person arrested who was not charged with any crime, leading them to conclude that he could have been a bystander; they also speculated that Trump may have been a member of the KKK, which had gone through a revival in urban areas after 1915. When asked about the issue in September 2015 by The New York Times, Donald Trump, then a candidate for presidency of the United States, denied that his father had been arrested, or that he had been in the KKK.

In 1954, Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee for profiteering from public contracts, including overstating his Beach Haven building charges by $3.7 million. In testimony before the Senate Banking Committee in 1954, William F. McKenna, appointed to investigate "scandals" within the FHA, cited Fred C. Trump and his partner William Tomasello as examples of how profits were made by builders using the FHA. McKenna said the two paid $34,200 for a piece of land which they rented to their corporation for over $60,000 per year in a 99-year lease, so that if the apartment they built on it ever defaulted, the FHA would owe $1.5 million on it. McKenna said that Trump and Tomasello obtained loans for $3.5 million more than the apartments cost.Trump testified before the Senate Banking Committee the following month as it investigated "windfall profits." He said that builders would not have built apartments under an expired post-war loan insurance program if regulations had set inflexible limits on loans issued by the FHA. Folk icon Woody Guthrie, who from 1950 was a tenant in one of Trump's apartment complexes in Brooklyn, criticized Trump as a landlord. He wrote lyrics that accused his landlord of stirring up racial hate "in the bloodpot of human hearts".

In 1973, the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a civil rights suit against the Trump Organization (TO; Fred Trump, chair, 27-year-old Donald Trump, president) charging it with "violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968." In response, Trump attorney Roy Cohn filed a counter-suit against the government for $100 million, "portray[ing] the Trumps as the victims," claiming the DOJ's "falsely accusing them of discrimination."

The suits arose after complaints to the New York City Commission on Human Rights and to the Urban League led the League and other groups to send black and white "testers" to apply for apartments in Trump-owned complexes, which led them to conclude that whites got apartments in the buildings of their interest, while blacks generally did not; both advocacy organizations then raised the issue with the Justice Department. As reported by Wayne Barrett and Jon Campbell for The Village Voice, citing court records, "four superintendents or rental agents confirmed that applications sent to the [TO] central office for acceptance or rejection were coded by race.

"An early Village Voice article by Wayne Barrett in 1979 cited court records from the case and reported that a TO rental agent indicated he had been given instructions by Fred Trump "not to rent to blacks" and to "decrease the number of black tenants" by encouraging their relocation to other housing. After approximately two years in court, a consent decree between the DOJ and the TO was signed (June 10, 1975), with both sides claiming victory—the TO for its perceived ability to continue to deny rentals to welfare recipients, and the head of DOJ’s housing division for the decree being "one of the most far-reaching ever negotiated," as it personally and corporately prohibited the Trumps and the TO from “discriminating against any person in the terms, conditions, or priveleges [sic.] of sale or rental of a dwelling,” and "required Trump to advertise vacancies in minority papers and list vacancies... [preferentially, with a Center of] the Urban League," as well as to use the ads to inform potential minority applicants that they had equal opportunity to seek housing at TO properties. Finally, it required the TO to "promote minorities to professional jobs," and it ordered the Trumps "to 'thoroughly acquaint themselves personally on a detailed basis' with the Fair Housing Act." The Justice Department would subsequently further complain that continuing "racially discriminatory conduct by Trump agents has occurred with such frequency that it has created a substantial impediment to the full enjoyment of equal opportunity."

A Kluxer To The End:

Fred Trump suffered from Alzheimer's disease for six years. He fell ill with pneumonia in June 1999 and was admitted to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, where he died at age 93 a few weeks later. Trump's estate was estimated by his family at $250 million to $300 million; his funeral was held at the Marble Collegiate Church. He is interred at Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery in Middle Village, Queens. His widow, Mary, died the following summer, on August 7, 2000, in New Hyde Park, New York, at age 88.

"In The Shadows Of A Racist Past, Boston Braces For A Far-Right Rally"
By
Holly Bailey
August 18, 2017
https://www.yahoo.com/news/shadows-racist-past-boston-braces-far-right-rally-211424578.html?soc_trk=gcm&soc_src=ecd5e8af-dc90-3332-9efb-d522bf6b8dfa&.tsrc=notification-brknews

BOSTON — The Parkman Bandstand sits in a quiet corner of Boston Common, well away from the park’s iconic swan boats and the frog pond where little kids by the dozen are known to splash in the fountains during the warm summer months. It is an advertised stop along the city’s storied Freedom Trail, a walking tour of the spots that gave birth to American democracy and helped shape the country’s identity as the land of the free and home of the brave.

But those ideals — particularly the right to freedom of speech — could be put to the test this weekend, as Boston braces for a controversial rally hosted by far-right groups that many here worry could turn violent.

The rally, billed as the “Boston Free Speech Rally,” is scheduled for Saturday, just one week after a protest at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., turned deadly. One woman was killed and dozens were injured after a white supremacist allegedly plowed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters that was clashing with white supremacists and neo-Nazis marching against the removal of a Confederate memorial.

Organizers of Boston’s march, planned since July, have insisted that their group has no links to hate groups involved in the Virginia melee, but at least two of the announced speakers have extremist ties. The rally has prompted at least two counterprotest marches, including from the local chapter of Black Lives Matter, which also plans to converge on the Boston Common — prompting warnings from city officials and law enforcement they will not tolerate violence from either side.

On Friday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh strongly urged hate groups to stay away and called for the city to embrace unity — invoking the history of other speakers who have taken to the steps at the bandstand to promote inclusiveness and equality.

“From that stage in 1965, Martin Luther King spoke the words that still ring true today, that it’s not a battle of white people versus black people, but a struggle of the forces of justice and injustice. From that stage about 10 years ago, Barack Obama was running for president of the United States of America, and we began to imagine the idea of our country with its first black president,” Walsh said. “Those are the words we will remember.”

Echoing King, he added, “We don’t respond to hate with hate. We respond to hate with peace.”

But Boston’s pushback against hate groups comes as the city has grappled with its own reputation of racism that it has long struggled to shake. Though it is considered one of the country’s most politically progressive cities — one that twice voted for a black president, Obama, and a black governor, Deval Patrick, whose two terms in the Massachusetts state house ended in 2015 — Boston’s racial issues continue. That includes a high-profile episode in May when Boston Red Sox fans used racial slurs to heckle Adam Jones, an all-star center fielder for the Baltimore Orioles during a game at Fenway Park.

Black players have repeatedly complained about racial epithets being hurled their way by Red Sox fans at the iconic ballpark. But the abuse made headlines when Jones, who is black, said Boston fans repeatedly insulted him with racial slurs and threw a bag of peanuts at him. Jones described it as one of the worst experiences of his 12-year career. Boston leaders condemned the incident and Red Sox management threatened lifetime bans for any fans caught using racial epithets at the park. Jones later received a standing ovation from Red Sox fans at another game and apologies from Walsh and others who said the behavior was not reflective of their city.

But the incident revived an age-old question for residents here who have long viewed their increasingly diverse city, which has gone from roughly 82 percent white in 1970 to 54 percent white today, as cosmopolitan and enlightened because of the large number of universities and research institutions here. “Is Boston racist?” a Boston Globe headline asked earlier this summer.

In July, the paper in coordination with Suffolk University posed the question to 500 Boston residents. The poll found the city nearly split: 45 percent said Boston is not a “racist city,” while 42 percent said it is, results that were within the survey’s 4.4 percent margin of error. Thirteen percent were undecided. Broken down by demographics, the results were predictable: Blacks and Latinos said Boston is a racist city; whites overwhelmingly said it isn’t.

But Boston’s ugly racial history dates back to the time when the Irish and other immigrants were discriminated against and even quarantined during the early 19th century by the wealthy Brahmin elite. While monuments around Boston celebrate the city’s heritage of being anti-slavery and encouraging freedom for blacks, the city struggled longer than most when it comes to relations between blacks and whites.

The Red Sox was famously the last major team to racially integrate — waiting until 1959 to add a black player to its ranks. But perhaps the most enduring symbol of strife dates to the 1970s, when white residents violently resisted a federal order to desegregate local schools by busing in black students. They hurled rocks at buses while some attacked city officials, including some who were black. The tensions continued well into the 1980s, when the New York Times published a 1983 article about racism in Boston. The story was a stain against a city that by then was regarded as liberal and educated, home of some of the nation’s top universities.

But even now racial tensions endure. The city remains largely segregated — with many minority residents living outside of central Boston. Though mayors before him have tried and failed to bridge the city’s divide, trying to solve Boston’s race issues has been one of Walsh’s priorities at City Hall.

Late last year, he convened a series of forums mixing residents of different races from all over the city and encouraging them to talk about racism and how it has affected them or not. These events came after Walsh’s 2013 mayoral campaign, in which he was confronted by a voter who asked him if he thought Boston was a racist city.

Walsh, a Democrat who is the son of Irish immigrants, struggled to answer. He told her he thought Boston was better than it used to be — a response he instantly felt was insufficient. Walsh has since been more outspoken. “We have racism in the city of Boston that we have to deal with,” he said last year. “We talk about one Boston, but we don’t see one Boston in the city of Boston right now.”

Last month, Walsh unveiled a report called “Resilient Boston” aimed at promoting racial equity in Boston, including more investment in black communities, hiring more minorities for city jobs and encouraging more discussions among Boston residents on the thorny issue of race. It’s a plan, he has said, that will likely take years to implement.

Ahead of Saturday’s rally, Walsh and Republican Gov. Charlie Baker have presented themselves as a united front against racial division. Both were quick to condemn President Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville and the rhetoric he later used in defending white supremacists who sparred with counterprotesters, whom Trump described as equally violent.

Speaking to reporters at City Hall on Friday, Walsh said he would spend Saturday away from Boston Common, touring some of the city’s black neighborhoods in a show of unity. He repeatedly said he wished that he didn’t have to approve a permit for the Boston Free Speech Rally organizers — but acknowledged it was their “right to gather, no matter how repugnant their beliefs are.”

Walsh repeatedly called for peace in the city and bemoaned the attention that hate groups have gotten in recent days. But, he added, “We can’t look away, the children of our city are watching. The young people of our city. … We have to make it clear what we stand for in the city of Boston. We have to stand together.”

'No Rizzo Statue Here!'

"Person Throws Eggs, Places ‘Shame On President Trump’ Sign On Controversial Philly Statue"
August 15, 2017 11:54 PM
Filed Under: Frank Rizzo statue, Helen Gym, Council Person At Large, Philadelphia, PA
http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2017/08/15/frank-rizzo-statue/

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A statue that sits across the street from Philadelphia’s City Hall is drawing new scrutiny.

Some critics are calling for the removal of a monument that honors Frank Rizzo, the city’s former mayor and police commissioner.

The statue was dedicated in 1998 and rumblings to remove it date back to at least a year ago.

Late Tuesday night, a large sign was taped onto the front of the statue saying, “Shame on President Trump”. CBS3 has also learned that two eggs were also thrown at the Rizzo statue.

"All around the country, we're fighting to remove the monuments to slavery & racism. Philly, we have work to do. Take the Rizzo statue down."

Gym says the prominent placement of the larger-than-life statue is a problem.

“Being in the center of our city, as you can see, it’s a direct scene right from our office,” said Gym. “It’s a question about what are we uplifting.”

Gym’s tweet comes in the wake of what’s happening in Charlottesville, Virginia. The recent white power and hate group protests, and counter protests, have been centered around that city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Gym says she’s not comparing Rizzo directly to a Confederate general. She just feels it’s time to account for all history, including recent history.

“It’s about healing our own sins, about confronting our own past and moving forward,” she said. “Memorials are not just about the past, they’re about who we choose to honor today.”

Gym does believe she’ll get enough support to begin the conversation and get this statue removed over time.

Council member Gym (G-him) does believe she’ll get enough support to begin the conversation and get this statue removed over time.

After the statue was vandalized Tuesday, officials have surrounded it with fences.

“In the beginning, there was nothing. Then they were driven out of ‘Eden.’
Sin was the temptation!”

“And they began to build, and in the fourth week they made brick with fire, and the bricks served them for stone, and the clay with which they cemented them together was asphalt which comes out of the sea, and out of the fountains of water in the land of Shinar. And they built it: forty and three years were they building it; its breadth was 203 bricks, and the height [of a brick] was the third of one; its height amounted to 5433 cubits and 2 palms, and [the extent of one wall was] thirteen stades [and of the other thirty stades].” – They Intended To Build It Right Up To The Heavens!
~ (Jubilees 10:20–21, Charles' 1913 translation) ~

According to the ‘Hebrew (and others as well) Scriptures,’ Nimrod was a bold, strong, and boisterous King of Babylon. This man ‘Nimrod,’ is/was the Son of Cush, Son of Ham, and Son of Noah who was the son of Lamech, and son of Methuselah.

Albeit, Brother Nimrod was the fiercest and mightiest of warriors, he held a god-like tendency. He wanted men to bow down to him and not to “The Most High.” Have you ever wondered why prayer was removed from public schools and many public gatherings? Have you ever wondered why only certain religious holidays are observed while others are not in today society?

The meaning of his name is supposed to mean “Rebel” according to the Hebrew verb ‘marad.’
Adding an “n” before the “m” it becomes an infinitive construct, “Nimrod.” (See Kautzsch 1910: 137 2b, also BDB 1962: 597). The name Nimrod could have also been the derisive term of a type, a representative of a system that is or could have been described as a system that is epitomized in rebellion against the Creator, the One True God.

The Holy Bible (and other Holy Books as well) records the civilizations after “The Great Flood.” It has been said that a well-known tale of a man who fits a certain type as described by the Babylonians, the Assyrians, The Hittites, and the Sumerian’s as ‘Gilgamesh,’ aka, “Nimrod!”
~ (Genesis 10:8-12) ~
The immigrant who sits atop the ivory, glass, and steel tower ruling over the land filled with immigrants refused the admission of ‘fresh immigrants’ into “The Land of Milk and Honey.” He has no need for the offerings of “The White House.” It’s his house alone that rules!

Now this man claims all of the fame that is due other men (and women). He claims the praise and humbled prayers due to ‘The All-Mighty” from men (and women) at all times.
The Wise Josephus said “Here is precisely what is found in the Gilgamesh epics. It was Gilgamesh who set up tyranny; he opposed “Yahweh” and did his utmost to get people to forsake “Him.”

1 picture that explains the remarkable White House staff turnover
CNN
Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
August 19, 2017

"President Donald Trump was in the midst of an hour-long "congratulatory" call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the White House's readout. In the photo, he is surrounded by his White House brain trust: chief of staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, press secretary Sean Spicer and national security adviser Michael Flynn. (Vice President Mike Pence is also there!)
Just over 200 days later -- 202 to be exact -- the only men in that picture still employed at the White House are Trump and Pence.
And while Priebus, Bannon, Spicer and Flynn have all been let go (or left), that picture doesn't even capture the breadth of departures at the senior staff level in the first seven months of the Trump administration.
Take the job of communications director."
