Here’s the current breaking Al Sharpton story—From April 7, The Smoking Gun:

“The former mob snitch [Sharpton] has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family…

“His [Sharpton's] former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s [Sharpton's] surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom…

“In fact, by any measure, Sharpton himself was a Mafia ‘associate,’ the law enforcement designation given to mob affiliates who, while not initiated, work with and for crime family members.”

But let’s travel back to 2004. Reporter Doug Ireland, who has written for The Nation, TomPaine.com, In These Times, and LA Weekly, went deeper in evaluating Sharpton’s motives and allies.

From here to the end of this article, I’m quoting Ireland, from his February 21, 2004, article, “Rev. Al Sharpton: FBI Informant-Roger Stone’s B it ch,” originally published in LA Weekly and at webstonne.com, and then Conspiracy Planet:

In his 2003 autobiography, Al on America, the Rev. Alfred Charles Sharpton Jr. admits, “I have been guilty of letting ungodly things around me.”

And that was never more true than with the latest [2004] revelations about Sharpton, who has now been exposed as a cat’s-paw for the National Republican Party.

Rev. Al has a long and sordid history of posing as the champion of the have-nots, while renting himself out to the greedy have-everythings, which predates his ’04 GOP-funded presidential campaign. In 1986, he endorsed N.Y. Senator Al D’Amato for re-election — although D’Amato, a conservative Republican pit bull, was anathema to more issues-attuned black leaders.

In 1994, he helped dampen down the black vote for [Democrat] Governor Mario Cuomo by making a media-hyped appearance with successful conservative Republican candidate George Pataki just days before the election. In the 2001 New York mayoral campaign, he connived with GOP billionaire Michael Bloomberg in the defeat of the Democratic candidate, Mark Green.

But Sharpton has not limited himself simply to supporting candidates considered by most to be inimical to the interests of the impoverished black community.

Sleeping With the GOP
A Bush Covert Operative Takes Over Al Sharpton's Campaign

By Wayne Barrett with special reporting by Adam Hutton and Christine LagorioTuesday, Jan 27 2004


Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob
that shut down the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George W.
Bush president in 2000, is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the
presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton.

Though Stone and Sharpton have tried to reduce their alliance to a curiosity,
suggesting that all they do is talk occasionally, a Voice investigation has
documented an extraordinary array of connections. Stone played a pivotal role
in putting together Sharpton's pending application for federal matching funds,
getting dollars in critical states from family members and political allies at odds
with everything Sharpton represents. He's also helped stack the campaign with
a half-dozen incongruous top aides who've worked for him in prior campaigns.
He's even boasted about engineering six-figure loans to Sharpton's National
Action Network (NAN) and allowing Sharpton to use his credit card to cover
thousands in NAN costs—neither of which he could legally do for the campaign.
In a wide-ranging Voice interview Sunday, Stone confirmed his matching-fund
and staffing roles, but refused to comment on the NAN subsidies.

Sharpton denounced the Voice's inquiries as "phony liberal paternalism,"
insisting that he'd "talk to anyone I want" and likening his use of Stone to Bill
Clinton's reliance on pollster Dick Morris, saying he was "sick of these racist
double standards." He did not dispute that Stone had helped generate matching
contributions and staff the campaign. Asked about the Stone loans, he conceded
that he "asked him to help NAN," but attributed the financial aid to his and
Stone's joint "fight against the Rockefeller drug laws," adding: "If he did let me
use his credit card to cover NAN expenses, fine." The finances of NAN and the
Sharpton campaign have so merged in recent months that they have shared
everything from contractors to consultants to travel expenses, though Sharpton
insists that these questionable maneuvers have been done in compliance with
Federal Election Commission regulations.



Stone's Miami-based Fairbanks Limited also set up an e-mail service called
Sharpton-at-the-beach, which has issued dozens of releases highlighting
campaign achievements before news of them was posted on the campaign
website. His impact on strategy even included giving Sharpton the ax handle he
wielded at the July NAACP convention, which Sharpton used as a symbol of
former Georgia Democratic governor Lester Maddox, who became famous in
the '60s by chasing blacks from his restaurant with one. Sharpton stirred the
crowd, yelling from the podium: "Anytime we can give a party 92 percent of our
vote and have to still beg some people to come talk to us, there is still an
ax-handle mentality among some in the Democratic Party." Sharpton said he
doesn't remember whether Stone gave him the ax handle. Stone declined to
comment, but has boasted to friends that he came up with the theatrics.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
