NEW YORK (AP) — The Uncle Ben’s rice brand is getting a new name: Ben’s Original.
Parent firm Mars Inc. unveiled the change Wednesday for the 70-year-old brand, the latest company to drop a logo criticized as a racial stereotype. Packaging with the new name will hit stores next year.
“We listened to our associates and our customers and the time is right to make meaningful changes across society,” said Fiona Dawson, global president for Mars Food, multisales and global customers. “When you are making these changes, you are not going to please everyone. But it’s about doing the right thing, not the easy thing.”
Several companies have retired racial imagery from their branding in recent months, a ripple effect from the Black Lives Matters protests over the police killing of George Floyd and other African Americans.
Quaker Oats announced in June that it would drop Aunt Jemima from syrup and pancake packages, responding to criticism that the character’s origins were based the “mammy,” a black woman content to serve her white masters. Quaker said packages without the Aunt Jemima image will start to appear in stores by the end of the year, although the company has not revealed the new logo.
The owner of Eskimo Pie has also said it will change its name and marketing of the nearly century-old chocolate-covered ice cream bar. Beyond food brands, the Washington NFL franchise dropped the “Redskins” name and Indian head logo amid pressure from sponsors including FedEx, Nike, Pepsi and Bank of America.
Geechie Boy Mill, a family-owned operation in South Carolina that makes locally-grown and milled white grits, is also planning a name change. Geechie is a dialect spoken mainly by the descendants of African-American slaves who settled on the Ogeechee river in Georgia, according to Merriam-Webster.com.
“We are in the process of changing our name and have developed a whole new brand. We look forward to sharing it with the public,” said Greg Johnsman, owner of Geechie Boy Mill.
Mars had announced in the summer that the Uncle Ben’s brand would “evolve.”
Since the 1940s, the rice boxes have featured a white-haired Black man, sometimes with a bow tie, an image critics say evokes servitude. Mars has said the face was originally modeled after a Chicago maitre d’ named Frank Brown. In a short-lived 2007 marketing campaign, the company elevated Uncle Ben to chairman of a rice company.
Dawson said months of conversations with employees, customer studies and other stakeholders led the company to settle on “Ben’s Original. She said the company is still deciding on an image to accompany the new name.
Mars also announced several other initiatives, including a $2 million investment in culinary scholarships for aspiring Black chefs in partnership with the National Urban League. It also is planning a $2.5 million investment in nutritional and education programs for students in Greenville, Mississippi, the majority African-American city where the rice brand has been produced for more than 40 years.
Mars said it has set a goal of increasing the ranks of racial minorities in U.S. management positions by 40%. The company did not give a timeframe for reaching that number.

The JOE and DON TAPES: TUE, SEP 22, 2020
(Phone Chirping, “HAIL THE CHIEF”)
JOE: Yeah, Don, it’s me.
DON: Go on?
JOE: Listen, I’m doing everything I can to make sure I’m not elected. I can’t win, man. Not possible, Americans are morons but they’re not stupid.
DON: Go on?
JOE: Yeah, got the stars and celebs out of their minds, the anchors in meltdown–ya’ll should see Lemon, he be a fricking basket-case, man, c’mon man—and the mobs are coming in by bus and plane.
JOE: Yeah, I even got George and Bloomie to pay the bills for it all.
JOE: Hey, yo, come on, man: I get the feeling you’re not hip to my jive. Wanna borrow my comb or something?
DON: No, actually, I want nothing to do with you or this, Hair Plugs.
JOE: Hey Alligator! Ya’ll want me to see you later? I mean—like, ya’ll—what about me on the SCOTUS? Can you dig it, man?
JOE: Hello? Hello? Hey, come on man….? Y’all? Alligator? Heh-ro Rorge?
As president of the United States of America, Donald Trump puts his life and family on the line every day. Trump and his family are repetitively threatened with death and various other sorts of harm – not only by operators on foreign soil, but by seeming lunatics inside America itself.
He is under constant threat by those who state they want him dead or torn to pieces, that they want his family kidnapped, raped, beaten, or killed.
A few prominent names of those expressing stated dislike of Donald Trump are Robert De Niro, Tom Arnold, Maxine Waters, Don Lemon, Van Jones, LeBron James, Eminem, Madonna, Cher, Michael Moore, and many others too numerous to list here. Why do they seem to feel this way – and liberals, all?
Leftists call his wife a “whore”, and run around with signs saying “rape Melania”. They hold up his bloody and severed head as a “joke”, call for his assassination as a “joke”, call his 10-year-old son a rapist and autistic and a homeschool shooter, and they are suddenly claiming the moral high ground? …
And the more he fights back, the more the Left rages…and the more the media exposes themselves as being utterly corrupt, and how truly hateful the Left has become. Nor is this a fringe element. This is the Left. They are putting on a show for all to see, and are too stupid to realize that everyday Americans are paying attention[.]
Common sense would tell “everyday Americans” Donald Trump doesn’t have to live this sort of life. He could resign and go back to being a billionaire TV mega-mogul, with a beautiful wife and great wealth. He could live happily ever after in a world of private jets, exclusive clubs, sun, sea, sand, and everlasting abundance.
So what’s the deal?
Is he maybe scamming America to make a quick shekel? I don’t think so.
Is he scamming America to feather his nest for all time? I don’t think so.
Then why does he do these things? Why would Donald Trump choose to live inside this 24-hour ring of threats, deceit, lies, and violence?
Because Donald Trump is a patriot, dedicating his life, fortune, and sacred honor to the security and future of America. To you.
To many of us he is just as much a front-line patriot as were Audie Murphy in World War II, Victor H. Espinoza in Korea, Christopher Scott Kyle more recently, and hundreds and thousands of others who fought bravely or even just stood up for America. It’s said they did it for those who reside lawfully within America’s borders, and even for some of those who don’t reside there so “lawfully.”
What’s the deal? What’s the beef? What’s the gripe? Donald Trump is hardly different from any other American grandson of poor immigrants. Trump was born in 1946, and in 1966, while at Wharton Business school, he began working in the family business. The rest, as they say, is history.
And the left hates him. Hates his guts.
The next time you see Donald Trump, remember he doesn’t need “this crap.” Remember he is already a billionaire.
But remember he risks his life every day – his family, his fortune, and his sacred honor. For America. For you.
Report: Woman Arrested For Allegedly Sending Ricin To President Trump
Law enforcement officials have reportedly arrested a woman suspected of sending ricin, a biological agent that is fatal at even small doses when ingested or inhaled, to President Donald Trump in an envelope earlier this week, authorities said Sunday afternoon.
According to CNN, the woman was detained by Customs and Border Patrol agents while trying to cross into New York via the Canadian border and was carrying a weapon with her at the time she was arrested….
…pop singer Cher appeared to call for the legal execution of President Trump, before continuing in an online rant….

Bill Maher Imagines Speaking at Trump’s Future Funeral….

…It’s strange stuff, given that they no longer believe in debate, persuasion, or even congressional maneuvers — they just want to menace, burn, and kill, which is the sort of thing totalitarian mobs in nasty third-world hellholes do, if not National Socialists in action.
And they speak of it as if they haven’t already been to that well once, burning and looting to demonstrate their supposed calls for what they claim to be racial justice, frequently targeting small black-owned buisnesses in inner cities to make their mendacious claims.
Basically, it’s full blown civil war they want, and, like overconfident Confederates, they may be surprised how quickly they get it. Unlike the Confederates, they lack courage, so it could be over quickly.
What it tells the rest of us is that these aren’t rational people. They’re so deranged that they’ll burn and kill as a means of getting what they can’t get at the ballot box. They need to taken at their word that it’s insurrection they want and smacked down hard….
The several people I have known dying with what Ruth reportedly had were so doped up with pain killers and other drugs they had ZERO idea what they were saying or talking about. They were vegetables or raving.
So Ruth, I do NOT believe this alleged “death bed wish” you so nicely and literarily well-stated. I do NOT believe you said anything at all. I think it is a lie.
I think you are being represented in this your death by liars.
As far as Trump?
Trump undoubtedly had intel last week that Ruth was dying. He therefore floated several nominees for SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the Untried States,) among these may be Cruz and Cotton.
Democrats: YOU DON’T CARE: you were ALREADY rioting, and you stated you planned to just continue rioting.
Conserves: you were already watching hard and deciding.
Ruth: I do NOT believe this “death bed statement” you are said to have made.
AND, AS FAR AS EL SEÑOR DONALDO?
Donald Trump now HAS to proceed with a nominee. Trump HAS to get out ahead of the interminable democrat riots, burnings, and murders. He HAS to be seen taking action RIGHT NOW.
He at least must begin a process—be seen as moving on this topic.
Trump must therefore be political, or practical.
Or guess what?
NOBODY will vote for Donald Trump.
And he knows this very well….
…the same way even Eye know it.

A literal coup d’état – a bloody revolution against the American system – to depose President Trump and prevent a second term at all costs is looking like a foregone conclusion heading into November.
Reporting from the pro-Trump news aggregation site, Revolver News showed that the so-called Transition Integrity Project (TIP) is filled with Soros-backed operatives and Never Trumpers. Despite the obviously partisan nature of the project, it is being heralded as unbiased and non-partisan. Public policy is being crafted based on TIP’s recommendation to “secure the vote,” ie. doing everything possible to make sure Trump is not the winner.
The shadowy Democrat operative John Podesta, paying the role of Biden, refused to concede during a TIP wargaming exercise simulating election scenarios. He went as far to start a civil war while roleplaying as Biden in this theoretical exercise, suggesting that millions of deaths would be worth it to stop the American people from making the wrong choice. Similarly, Hillary Clinton has implored Biden to refuse to concede on election day, even if he gets drubbed by Trump at the polls. This is how reasonable Democrats protect Democracy against the pesky will of the people.
Opinion columnist David Brooks laid out the scenario in the New York Times of what happens if President Trump “doesn’t leave” the White House after the election. This is laying the groundwork for Trump to be removed if there is a tremendous amount of election fraud, which could very well be the case due to widespread mail-in voting, and the election is ultimately disputed. Brooks is giving marching orders to the hordes on what must be done in order to ensure that Trump cannot get a second term no matter what the people decide.
Vice Presidential wannabe Sen. Kamala Harris actually helped raise bail funds to get looters, murderers and terrorists back on the streets of Minneapolis while the riots were at their peak following the drug overdose death of violent felon George Floyd. Since becoming vice president, she has not relented – making an appearance on Late Show with Stephen Colbert to endorse the sustained violence and promise that it will continue until the election and beyond.
“They’re not going to stop before election day in November, and they’re not going to stop after election day, and everyone should take note of that on both levels that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not,” Harris said.
BLM leaders are proud marxists openly agitating for an overthrow of the capitalist system. And nobody seems to care or notice. Well, perhaps some of the commoners in flyover country care, but they’re in the process of being replaced by a third-world foreigner so their opinion does not matter much. Nobody in any serious position of authority within the federal government cares, certainly not Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, who have been criticized by Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch for their non-investigationinto deep state crimes. Despite Barr’s public pronouncements, his agents are more focused on going after former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and regularly makes excuses for ANTIFAwhile profiling supposed white supremacists as being the real domestic terror threat.
Our elected officials will not be saving us from the onslaught. It is not difficult to comprehend how the fake news media, which has lied about Russia, Ukraine, COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and virtually everything else, could gin up another deception to cast the election into doubt even if Trump is the winner. These left-wing revolutionaries are remarkably brazen in their scheming to influence an election, stoke racial divisions, turn cities into dust, create an orgy of mayhem, and rip up the Bill of Rights and Constitution. This is who they are, who they always were, and who they always will be. But what are conservatives doing in response to this?
Sure, we all like to wave the flag and talk about how much we love our country, but what are we willing to do to actually protect it?
Unlike liberals, conservatives have the perspective to be able to enjoy and be thankful for their blessings. They are not constantly envious of their fellow man. They appreciate the privilege of living in a first-world Western country with the rule of law, private property rights, individual liberty, and the relative safety of their families. However, appreciation for these first-world amenities can become a false idol when they are cherished above all else. Too many Americans have become fat and happy with the good life; losing touch with the necessities of sacrifice and struggle. They are living their credit financed American dream, accumulating a great deal of material wealth, at the expense of the nation.
The Founding Fathers were men of nobility who were living incredibly well under the British crown, but they yearned for something more. They were not willing to look the other way as their liberties were deprived from them. They were willing to sacrifice everything to even have a chance at true liberty. Was their revolution perfect? Of course not. Was it one of the greatest acts to promote human freedom in world history? Yes, indubitably so.
It is true that King George, in comparison to the tyrants of today, seems pretty fair-minded by comparison. The tinpot despots of yesteryear never could have fathomed the ghastly bureaucratic monstrosity that lords over us today. However, the Founders were not willing to cede an inch to those who were oppressing them. The small group of patriots, guided by the provincial hand of God, were able to drag a captive population into a revolution that seemed so improbable as to be foolhardy. And yet, they achieved absolute victory, a fact that sticks in the craw of those who would wish to yield absolute state power to this very day.
The Founders achieved absolute victory because they were bold and fearless. Modern conservatives must be similarly bold and willing to sacrifice everything to stop their civilization from collapsing. The Left has already declared war. They are coming for everything. And because of the institutional systemic racism by the privileged white male patriarchy, or whatever, they have an unquenchable moral imperative to burn, loot and murder. After the Biden administration brings over 50 million or so climate refugees, not even the suburbs will be safe from the chaos.
The amenities of the first-world nation may still be intact but they are illusory. They are the spoils of a sinister, globalist-dominated system, which requires decent people to tolerate corruption, filth and decadence in order to sustain it. Americans have been bought off with luxuries and distractions. They have looked the other way while their nation has been devastated, taking a laissez-faire approach to their sacred birthright at their great peril. But there is one more chance to renew the country; however, the chance will not be around for long and will come at a substantial cost. If conservatives are not willing to consider this option, the Republic will be lost forever.
It is given that the plurality of Jews wouldn’t vote for Donald J. Trump even if Moses endorsed him. We shouldn’t look for logic here. As prominent Zionist Max Nordau once observed, “logic is a Greek art and Jews can’t tolerate it”.
Tom Teicholz, the author of the new book The Worst President Ever.: Prominent Republican and Former Trump Administration Officials Speak Out Against Trump, is not an exception. In it, rather than support his case, he offers an unending barrage of selective opinions of Trump opponents and disgruntled former employees who for the most part criticize the President’s intimidating personality and abrasive style.
Having said this, we agree with him that Donald J. Trump is the worst president ever… for the Democrats/socialists.
When it comes to the substance however, “the worst president ever,” is striving for new world order reversing his predecessors’ embrace of globalism, Islamism and Iran. His building blocks include a restored military, energy independence, defended borders, and notwithstanding a temporary setback caused by Coronavirus, a robust economy, not seen since the tenure of Dwight Eisenhower. This surfeit of blessing allows Trump to conduct economic and foreign policies in a manner previously unavailable to his predecessors since the decade following World War II.
In effect, he ushered in a New Age of Nationalism which horrified his critics, especially Jews, who had spent the last 80 years decrying Nationalism as an evil rather than a good. Whereas, Zionism was born in the age of Nationalism and has remained true to its origins.
Overall, his critics failed to grasp the essence and the benefits of Trump’s statecraft and foreign policy based on raison d’état — national interests.
The list of President Trump’s accomplishments is well beyond the scope of this article, so we limit them to the “Jewish issues.”
President Trump became the first US president to visit the Western (aka, “Wailing”) Wall
At the beginning of Trump presidency America expected an era of protracted confrontation with the Arab World. Toward the end of his first term, America is expecting an era of peace. He accomplished this coming down decidedly in Israel’s favor thereby convincing the Arabs that it was futile to resist Israel.
Trump’s the Middle East peace initiative is rival to Theodore Roosevelt’s balance-of-power diplomacy during the mediation of the Treaty of Portsmouth for which he was awarded the Noble Peace Prize.
Obama had alienated the Arabs by embracing the Mullahs of Iran and entering the nuclear deal known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Trump withdrew from the deal and spent the last 3.5 years pushing Iran back thereby endearing himself to the Arabs who consider Iran a mortal enemy. Trump skillfully leveraged the USA position to induce collaboration between Israelis and Arabs against their common danger.
In the process, Trump:
The publicized criticism of Trump is a surrogate for a deep underlying ideological divide in America. The old adage, “There are two types of Jews — those who believe that Judaism is about social justice and those who know Hebrew,” perfectly reflects the current political environment.
The idea of social justice, in terms of helping the sick and the poor, is deeply embedded in Judaism. Living in ghettos and being persecuted for two millennia, the Jewish people have been struggling to reconcile their tragic history with contemporary reality. The experience has led them to take on and support the cause of every underdog and liberal movement in sight, no matter how unworthy, no matter how illogical or no matter how it imperiled their own interests or safety.
This is referred to as Tikkun Olam in the Talmud. Those who know Hebrew, know that it is an activity aimed at completing God’s work. Those who don’t know Hebrew divorce this activity from completing God’s work and think of it as a good in and of itself. Their divine mission is to change society upon their verities. This phenomenon explains why Orthodox Jews by and large voted for Trump in 2016 and are expected to vote for him in 2020 even in greater numbers.
The social justice crowd is not motivated by concerns for Israel and they are not motivated by the interests of the United States. Their obsession is social justice which they believe is not currently available. They believe that this can best be achieved through socialism and wealth redistribution.
This Party is determined to become the ruling party once again, through any means including making false accusations, fabricating or destroying evidence and election fraud.
Tom Teicholz, uses a pen, the others, such as the Jewish Community Action, a Minnesota-based group, are actively participating in demonstrations and riots in support of the so-called racial justice and economic equality.
Some wealthy Jews, in an act of colossal memory loss, sponsor Antifa and Black Lives Matter just like their ancestors who financed the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. They forget, if they ever knew, that their ancestors ended up facing a firing squad of triumphant socialism. Thus they support a party whose every postulate is a fraud:
Alexander G. Markovsky is a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, a conservative think hosted at King’s College, New York City, which examines national security, energy, risk-analysis and other public policy issues, He is the author of “Anatomy of a Bolshevik” and “Liberal Bolshevism: America Did Not Defeat Communism, She Adopted It.” He is the owner and CEO of Litwin Management Services, LLC.

Before you flag this as fake news, my source is the National Weather Service.
NWS reported that 87% of the wildfires were caused by humans this year — 7,072 in California alone. Not all were arson, of course, because humans are pretty careless. But enough are arson to cause concern in light of Democrats setting cities aflame this summer. The last thing we want is the Antifa arm of the Democrat Party expanding into rural areas.
ABC reported from Salem, Oregon, “An Oregon man was charged with arson in connection to a raging wildfire that destroyed hundreds of homes, one of the blazes gripping the West Coast with death and devastation.
“Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, was jailed on two charges of arson, 15 counts of criminal mischief and 14 counts of reckless endangering for a fire that was set Tuesday in the Phoenix area in southern Oregon.
“The fire merged with the raging Almeda Fire, and there is significant damage that police are attributing to the fire allegedly set by Bakkela, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.”
The story also said….

Memo to lawyers: What are you waiting for? File big cases now.
by Jon Rappoport
September 16, 2020
(To join our email list, click here.)
I’ve been covering the decision in the Pennsylvania COVID case and the court filing in Ohio. They give us the templates for potential victories in other states and countries.
In Pennsylvania (ruling), a federal judge just ruled that Governor Wolf’s COVID containment measures are unconstitutional. The judge went further. NO emergency cancels the Constitution. There is a line that cannot be crossed. The right to assemble, to have freedom of movement, to earn a living—they can’t be wiped off the board by lockdowns for ANY reason.
This is, indeed, a heroic ruling. It affirms the unmistakable rays of light emanating from the basis of the American Republic.
In Tom Renz’s gigantic Ohio filing against Governor Mike DeWine, both the Constitution and issues of fact/science are asserted. Facts mean something. A declaration of emergency must undergo scrutiny, to determine whether a clear and present danger justifies the declaration.
Otherwise, a government can destroy the Constitution, the rule of law, and human rights by falsely claiming danger when there is none. We would be back in the time of Royal Edict, with the king’s army as the “rationale.”
In 2020, lunatic cultural proclivities, media propaganda, political jockeying, pretensions of science, scare tactics, rigging of “facts,” and profit motives are in the mix. They produce amnesia about basic principles.
The law, when correctly applied, refreshes memory and sweeps away a blizzard of claims and counter-claims. The law comes to the point.
Using the law, one can say to governors and their public health advisors, “You’ve been going on for months now about the COVID spread and the emergency and the containment measures, but we want to reduce this to basics: do you have the Constitutional right to strip away our freedoms, and is there a factual reason to believe a state of emergency is necessary—so we’re going to court.”
Or, putting it another way: “Sir, you’re holding a gun to my head while you’re explaining at length why I can’t move. But you see, nothing has happened in court yet. Meet my lawyer. Are you going to shoot us both? Is that where you really want to go?”
In Ohio, attorney Tom Renz, on behalf of his clients, and against the governor, is asking for a jury trial. He wants citizens to hear the complex arguments about COVID SCIENCE. He wants citizens to understand the con and the game that is being played, in great detail. This is impressive. Renz believes The People deserve to know and they are capable of understanding.
From my nearly 40 years working as a reporter, experience tells me attorney Renz is correct. When the truth is laid out step by step, The People come to their senses. They cut through their own malaise. They cut through media indoctrination. As if they once took a voyage to an island called Logic, they suddenly remember that voyage.
After all, the COVID lockdowns and the economic destruction are being visited on the population at large, so let a dozen of their members (OUR members) hear the case and adjudicate it.
I’m not naïve about courts and judges and lawyers and juries. But I do know that, among the denizens of that system, there are keen minds and persons of good will. Persons who know that the Law, as it was once enshrined by the Founders, is a beacon and a breakthrough.
It is a culmination, after centuries of struggle, which places freedom at the head of the table.
Freedom—not edicts, not lockdowns.
What is COVID science? Has the virus actually been defined? Have case and death numbers been drastically inflated? Is there a pandemic? Why is a diagnostic test that has so many holes, that has never been properly validated, being deployed? How many obfuscations has the CDC planted to hide official secrets?
Let’s go to court and turn on the lights and explore the rabbit hole.
