I met DR. RICE when she was Director of the JOINT STAFF at the Pentagon. I doubt that she would remember me, we had brief conversations at her office, she was extremely busy. However, I will never forget those few conversations, and how I was inspired to finish my degree. I was hired by one DR Graham Turbaville, Chief, Strategic Operations branch, Defense Intelligence Agency. I have been an intelligence operative all of my adult life. I received my SI/TSCW clearance after I turned 18. I graduated from the Defense Intelligence College with a B.S. in Strategic Intelligence. I attended University of Maryland, University College, and majored in Government, Politics, and National security issues, and minored in History; specializing in ancient roman military history. I am reaching out to conservative organizations because the left has hold on black americans--and are destroying them. THAT MEANS we have FAMILY, FRIENDS, --fellow AMERICANS are in the grip of some pretty evil people. The left will keep them uneducated, class envious--forever. we are no good to them ever; if educated. We all know the so called leaders are doing this; and on whose behalf they are doing it. I am sure none of us know how they sleep at night. In the early 90's, a younger generation wanted control of the NAACP, the old guard had its time; they wanted to take the organization into the next century, a new direction as well. They lost, of course. they are now surrounded by marxist thought, VALUES, and PEOPLE. They waited, plotted for POWER. Most have no particular loyalty to the CONSTITUTION--mostly, i believe, because POTUS does not. It does not matter that friends and relatives served and took oaths. we have to start somewhere, after NOVEMBER. As a member of FREEDOM WORKS, disabled American Veterans, Association of American Geographers. the ACLJ, I would like to contribute any way i can to save the most lied to and oppressed people i know personally-Americans called African-Americans.
