Can Billy woo the woman vote in KY?
This might be an obstacle:
The legal page is the report on the activity that is presently consuming my life, and has consumed my life since 1998. The legal will explain how a mentally ill wife and a liberal guided federal government railroaded me into federal prison.
Well, that might not be too bad, maybe thereâ€™s an explanatiâ€¦..
During divorce proceedings in 1998, Sonnyâ€™s wife Belita ran to a womenâ€™s abuse center, due to her fear of losing money and custody of their daughter, Priscilla. Even though Sonny had never struck his wife or children (Rachel Landham is a step-daughter) [the foregoing statement was made by Belita and Rachel], the fascist womenâ€™s abuse groups of Kentucky and the federal government through judicial terrorism framed Sonny, and he did thirty-one (31) months in federal prison
CLARKSVILLE, INâ€“The Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist organization that has strong ties to the mainstream via members that are elected officials, will be holding their annual conference next month in a Holiday Inn near Louisville, Kentucky. This will be the second time this year that a major hotel chain was the location of a white supremacist conference, and this event is listing as speakers a former actor who has worked with Eddie Murphy and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a Canadian fascist who was most recently seen at National Vanguardâ€™s Conference in Elmwood Park, NJ on Motherâ€™s Day Weekend.
June 16 and 17 is when the CCC is to hold their 2006 National Conference at the Clarksville, Indiana Holiday Inn. This is considered a suburb of Louisville, Kentucky, which in recent years has seen a rag tag group of Klan members attempting to organize that reports say may put together a rally in the near future with the National Socialist Movement. The CCC event had been announced months ago, but it was only recently that the location was published on one of their websites.
The Conference boasts a slate of speakers that are considered conference regulars. CCC member and author Brent Nelson. Col. Robert Slimp, and lawyer Sam Dickson, who once represented Daniel â€œKKK Guyâ€ Carver from the Howard Stern Wack Pack, will be among those regulars speaking. In addition Minuteman and CCC member Joe McCutchen will also be on hand to speak at the conference.
Co-hosting the event will be actor Sonny Landham, who has appeared in 48 Hrs., Predator, The Warriors and a string of porn films in the seventies. He is a new member of the CCC and has been very active particularly around the issue of immigration.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Tough-guy actor and Senate hopeful Sonny Landham on Thursday repeated anti-Arab comments similar to those he made a day earlier on an Internet radio program.
The man who appeared in such movies as â€œ48 Hoursâ€ and â€œPredatorâ€ is running as a Libertarian for a U.S. Senate seat from Kentucky. He said heâ€™s gathered more than enough petition signatures to earn a spot on the November ballot to oppose Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell and Democrat Bruce Lunsford.
Landham was unapologetic Thursday for comments he made disparaging Arabs. He also said he would support blocking Arabs from entering this country to visit, attend school or to seek American citizenship. He accuses Arab countries of waging economic terrorism against the U.S. by allowing oil prices to reach record-high levels.
The imam, or spiritual leader, of the Islamic Center of Lexington says Landhamâ€™s comments are â€œirresponsible.â€ But Mahmoud Shalash says he doubts anyone else will agree with Landham.
Senate Candidate Makes Anti-Arab Remarks
Sonny Landham, the actor-turned-U.S. Senate candidate, says he opposes Arabs visiting the United States and believes the U.S. should have bombed Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Landham refused to distance himself from similar remarks made Wednesday on the Internet radio program ‘The Weekly Filibuster,’ and added more remarks about Arabs.
Landham said he didn’t want Arabs attending American schools or applying for American citizenship. As for Arab-Americans, Landham said if they show allegiance to the United States, they should be treated the same as anyone else.
Landham is the Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky, running against Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican, and Democrat Bruce Lunsford. The state’s Libertarian chairman, Ken Moellman, distanced himself from Landham’s remarks. The spiritual leader of a Lexington Islamic Center called them ‘irresponsible’ and ‘strange.’
