Crates of brick-a-brack Liberal Progressives!

By: BettyJean Downing
It’s time to come out of the closet!

Are we going to allow the biggest liar we know to label and intimidate us? Does the audience of thousands nightly look like a “basket of deplorables”? At the very same time Hillary was uttering these vicious words this is the audience listening to Trump live.
I don’t know about you but I have had enough of being denigrated, humiliated, insulted and accused of being a phobic or a hate”ist” of any sort because I don’t vote Democrat!
The label -discredit- shame tactic was quite successful 8 years ago, let’s not let them get away with it again!

Are you going to back down and let the Dems get away with it?
First we allowed them to push an inadequate black man with no experience down our throats and dared us to complain because after all we would be racists! It didn’t matter that he wasn’t qualified, black was all he needed.
Now they have a woman, a proven liar who is more than qualified to continue politics as usual and her claim to fame is her ability to squirm out of every lie she ever told and weasel out of ever mess she ever created.
The Democrats as a party have spent years catering to the lowest common denominator and have managed to gather an array of “Crates” filled with hordes of every sort of brick-a-brack collection of Liberal non traditionals hoping to overturn the America our forebearers fought and died for.
This group, now formed under the banner of Progressives are on a path to demean Conservatives by labeling them as the undesirable! This has already limited Conservative registrations driving many to register as Independent for fear being labeled by the Liberal Progressives. This “You are either with use or against us” rational has poisoned our political system for decades but never so blatantly as in the last 8 years.
Hillary Clinton has straight out called Donald Trump a racist who is “offering a dog whistle” to the most extremist, hateful portions of American society. Clinton said “around half of Trump’s supporters could be classified under the broad heading “basket of deplorables,” meaning racists, sexists, homophobes or xenophobes.
Eight years ago, I was labeled racist for running around the country trying to get Hillary elected now I am deplorable. Millions of us are deplorable, Obama got away with calling us racists, if she gets away with this, we will be deplorables, and we will deserve it.
You only have two choices; give in to her OR make sure she looses.

Please vote Trump, you have more to loose with her and her lying husband.


Human Rights withheld in America

By BettyJean Downing

An Open Letter to my colleagues working for Equal Rights.

What can I do to promote the Human Right still withheld to American women?

MY YEAR OF MOURNING is over and I am at a crossroads, saddened by the lack of response by women for women’s rights! I am deeply and personally wounded and I would like to share those thoughts with you to shed the frustration that almost caused me to turn my back on the ERA fight and women !

But alas after over 50 years, I can no more completely shed that fight than I can cut out my heart . It is however, with a very heavy heart that I continue.

During the 7 years that I have known and worked with most  of you, I have taken your advice and changed our name from FreeUsNow to a more uplifting and positive TheMajorityUnited and renamed the Radio station to WOMEN (Women Organized,motivated, and Empowered Nationwide) yet,  having spent over 100,000.00 of my own money all these years and energy – women would not step up and help in any way let alone to organize for ERA.

Large groups easily organize for a multitude i.e.  for gays who, God love em, comprise less than 10 % of the total population of both sexes, for illegals of all ages and sexes, for blacks, for thugs, for cop killers in jail or on the lamb, but where are the loud, protesting, sign carrying marchers for innocent women slaughtered daily at the rate of 4 a day every day, year in and year out?

We are so easily pacified by government run and or funded programs that do nothing to solve our problems or decrease the violence or the murder rate. The more VAW and DV. Groups That arise the more  funds are required to pay staff hundreds of thousands to run the programs  but that has not decreased the numbers just created many jobs. Where’s the no outrage! No one funds those of us who actually want to make change!

For rape every 24 minutes- no outrage! For beatings every few minutes- no outrage, in fact beatings if caught on video attract women wearing team shirts in support of pro sport abusers!

Blacks say they are targeted for walking while black but forget about the crimes and resisting arrest that precipitated some of these shootings.

Last year 143 blacks were shot by cops most in the commission of crimes or resisting arrest, Michael Brown found to be a thug having just robbed a store and roughed up the owner assaulted the officer and wound up dead. This brought on riots for months causing the burning down of a town in Missouri.

While ten  times 143 is 1430 the statistics are  365 x4= 1460 women were murdered just for being female and not just last year but every year!

During the last Iraqi war more female partners died at the hands of their men than did soldiers in Iraq during the same time period! Where are the signs Women’s Lives Matter? Or pictures of the victims labeled  ” I Can’t Beathe?

I ask you what can I do for the ERA but alas, there is little more any of us can do because we are not taken seriously in DC or anywhere because we are not united for women’s rights as a human right.

Clearly we don’t have enough self respect to stand up for ourselves, moreover, our women of color don’t mind being slaves so long as it’s not to whitey- they would rather be black minority than part of the majority and a women with equal rights.

Gay women rather have gay rights than equality which would afford them every opportunity under human rights.

Minorities rather be in minority groups than part of the God given Majority and gain of equal rights.

And so – we- you and I and others like us will fight to the death  to get equality for all but as Harriet Tubman so eloquently put it ” I freed a thousand slaves but I could have freed so many more if ONLY I could have convinced them they WERE slaves.”

Oh my dear ERA sisters, John Lennon was right “women are the niggers of the world” and like Tubman we can’t free them because we may never convince them that they are slaves.

ACTION ALERT: Remove Deadline for ERA By Executive Order

By BettyJean Downing on behalf of Carolyn Cook of United4Equality

Please ask friends and family to mail a copy of this letter with their name and address to the White House. In the spirit of the Thanksgiving season, it’s time for equality and justice for All Americans.

November 2014

The Honorable Barack H. Obama
President of the United States
The White House
Washington, D.C.
Re: Moving America Forward By Executive Order: Remove Any Deadline for Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment

Dear Mr. President:

If over half of all Americans are considered second-class citizens without the assurance of equal treatment, responsibility and opportunity under the US Constitution, how can the US claim to be the “Leader of the Free World?”

What is the legacy you plan to leave America now that Republicans control the House and Senate? Through adversity comes opportunity.

What about jump-starting the Equal Rights Amendment by Executive Order that removes any deadline for its ratification? It is for the President to use his authority by Executive Order to eliminate Congress’s arbitrary and unconstitutional deadline and allow the process to continue as it should have all along.

Women are the unsung heroines as partners, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and grandmothers. Women’s unpaid labor significantly contributes to our GDP without compensation, health insurance, vacation, or Social Security. Women make up more than half of our workforce and women-owned small businesses are expect to be 1/3 of all new job creators by 2018! It’s no wonder that there is a correlation between the welfare of society and the status of women.

While non-profits serve a vital function by addressing the immediate needs of the underserved, they cannot enact public policies on behalf of the general welfare of our nation as the Executive and Legislative branches can.

At what point will the your Administration gather up all of the studies and testimonials and take action?
• The White House Council on Women and Girls Report,
• “Women In America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-being”;
• The 600-page “Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink”;
• The State of Women in America: A 50-State Analysis of How Women Are Faring Across the Nation;
• Many Congressional hearings about women’s health, pay, poverty, sexual assault and domestic violence.

We need action that addresses the structural flaw in our founding document: the absence of women and girls as people.
As a former constitutional law professor, you must see the need to update our Constitution to include Women and Girls. Laws cannot protect the rights of citizens whose rights are not protected under the US Constitution. The Constitution guides law. Laws influence behavior. Behavior influences custom. Custom influences culture. Culture influences progress.

Americans revere the bold leadership that President Lincoln demonstrated when he abolished slavery by Executive Order during wartime. His vision was later reinforced by the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments granting freedom, citizenship, equal protection, and suffrage to all men.

Imagine our society today without the protections of the 14th Amendment.

Envision all of America’s daughters who have continued without that protection since 1868. The ERA is the equivalent of the 14th Amendment for All Women. If Lincoln could abolish slavery by executive order, could not President Obama help women achieve Equal Rights with an executive order?

Centuries of entrenched sex discrimination reinforced by law and custom will not disappear overnight. Slavery didn’t either, but we must begin somewhere. America must return to the very foundation of society to repair the structural flaw that excludes Malia and Sasha on account of being born female. As adults we owe History a repair of this oversight.

Immediate action is required to set the stage for the next Congressional session for equal rights.

Amending our Constitution doesn’t cost a dime, but it’s worth its weight in gold. On behalf of all Americans, we urge your official, public endorsement by Executive Order to mirror the intent of landmark legislation introduced by Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) to rescue the ERA from its congressionally-imposed political exile and give it your blessing towards victory. It was the Democratic Party led by Senator Sam Irvin (D-NC) that insisted on the deadline for ERA in 1972 and it is proper that the Democratic Party undo this harmful action now.

Human rights do not expire in our democracy, do they, Mr. President? Therefore, the path to achieve the basic human right of Equality for all human beings must exist in perpetuity with no deadline for personhood. Our goal is to set the ERA back on course to victory in three states in 2015 and end the human rights abuses of women and girls worldwide. It starts with Removing the Deadline for Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.

Thank you for your consideration.





Louisa: Gone too soon!

Louisa - Love of my Life my baby girl!

Louisa – Love of my Life my baby girl!

Louisa Passed October 27. 2013

Just a reminder Advocates against domestic violence. To date there have been ONLY 5 contributions!

Is it really possible that after all my years of service to women;s issues – that only 2 women showed up in court to show solidarity on Louisa’s behalf against her attacker and only the same two women came to her funeral this October? Is it also impossible to expect a few bucks be put in the mailbox because after 4 months there are only 5 donations? Silly me – I thought enough donations would pour in to cover a brick for both daughters, but not even one single brink has been covered!


Was it also probable that a man who never knew any of us had a seedling planted in her honor after reading her story?

If we can’t do better than this – then perhaps that is why we are not taken seriously when we beg for help with domestic violence! Perhaps that is why 4 women a day are murdered by a male they know/or love/trust! If we don’t help each other why should anyone else care?

My two daughters Denise and Louisa both victims of Domestic violence – serious head wounds shown below are now gone! I am left alone and I was hopeful not left alone to carry on to fight against Domestic Violence.

I am not only fighting for all three of us, I am fighting for you and your daughters too! Let us hope others will join the fight so NO other mothers are left childless too!

In lieu of flowers I asked please donate in Louisa’s name toward $400.00 needed for a center circle brick in Van Saun Park’s “Pathway to Freedom” sponsored by “Shelter our Sisters” in Hackensack, NJ 07601 (any amount no matter how small will be appreciated)

Contribute IN LOUISA RICHARDSON’s name directly to
405 State Street
Hackensack, NJ 07601

This mother has lost her two daughters – her best friends and has had insult added to injury: no flowers, no advocates, no visitation room full of visitors- I may never get over that! Was our five year fight against DV in vain? I expected so much more and she deserved so much more- may the Lord have mercy on the souls of those who ignored her plight and her fight and did not bother to pay last respects!

I can easily afford the damned bricks – you are all missing the point of this devastation! I need to know my daughter’s agony counted for something! They were beautiful before he bludgeoned one’s head in and blew the other ones brains out!

This is domestic violence and we all need to stand up!

Louisa in Critical Condition

Louisa needs your prayers, best wishes, good Karma, and whatever else you have to send her way.
She is in critical condition, battling for her life once again!
Suffering from a month long bout with pneumonia we nearly lost her last night then her lung collapsed.

She has bravely battled for the last 5 years now we all want the Very best for Louisa so I am sending this shout out both to alert you all and to ask for your spiritual help.

Over the last few years you have often asked about Louisa and I know you have prayed for and sent her your best wishes. I thank you!

Women Rise!

Women Rise!

Barbara McAfee is the singer-songwriter. It is rousing and uplifting! Click the link below to hear the song. I hope you will sing along—the words are here.


When women wake, mountains move.
When women wake, mountains move.
When women rise, the world rises with us.
So women wake, women wake
Women rise, women rise, women rise….

In a million small gestures, we weave it all together
Much of what we do goes unseen and unsung
But from our daily labors, our downright stubborn loving
A new world is begun….
We’re not going to wait ‘til we’re perfect
The women we are will just have to suffice
We likely won’t ask for permission to change things
We may not even be nice….
Is there something that grabs your attention?
A face or a story that won’t let you go?
Each gesture you make in repairing this world
Will matter more than you’ll ever know.
