Dr. Ann-Marie Adams “the real Olivia Pope” Asked to Run for Congress

Franklin Henry, Staff Writer

HARTFORD — “Code Red. Code Red. They’re trying to kill her,” someone shouted as  Dr. Ann-Marie Adams lie motionless on her bed at the University of Connecticut’s John Dempsey Hospital on April 4, 2014.

She had never been admitted to a hospital before 2014. So the 15-hour wait in the emergency room left her puzzled as she watched and listened to nurses and doctors attend to other patients. At the time of admittance, she was not ill.  Police disrupted her sleep time. And they wasted her prep time for revising a paper to present at the Association for the Study of Connecticut History conference at Fairfield University on the next day.  Medics thought she should “take precautions” after about six police officers visited her at 167 Sisson Ave. in Hartford.

April 4 was a watershed moment in American history. It parallels a tragic day in the Civil Rights Movement:  Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. on April 4, 1968. It was also a sign that local law enforcement agents wanted to suppress another journalist and had hoped to stop similar racial uprisings that spurred the Black Lives Matter movement.

So instead of catching up on sleep that day, Adams was in a conversation with Hartford police officers.

“What’s the charge?” Adams asked. “Why are you all here?”

Her sister’s baby sitter called and spoke “jibberish,” according to reports that were later unfounded. While other police officers busied themselves, Adams had a brief conversation with Hartford Police Officer Chris White.

“Being educated can be a dangerous thing,”White said. But it was clear, he said to Adams, nothing was wrong with her. Officers were just responding to a call that dispatched 15 police officers to her location in the West End of Hartford.

To Adams, that implied it was a crime to read, think and write in the Connecticut.  And many locals know that–hence their need to feed her stories. She later learned that police were trying to suppress uprisings because of a spate of police shootings of unarmed black men across the nation such as Ferguson. And they thought there was a need to “tame the shrew” who writes to fight. So they watched Adams for several months and try to “defang” her attempts to write about race, education and politics.

However, law enforcement agencies failed to provide a full explanation for the sudden intrusion into her privacy and were breaking almost every law on the books, sources said. But police officers–on condition of anonymity, said the April 4 incident was because of her writings about race and other matters in the state and federal government. As a result, there have been several attempts to disrupt her businesses and “muck up” her writing.

But after further investigation, police officers  said they discovered Adams true identity: She was brought to Connecticut as an Omen to help America restore its blessings. The shootings across the country are tied to 17 years of disruptions of Adams’s life and career, officials said.

The most recent disruptions began two days before Christmas 2013, she received a death threat while Obama was communicating with her about her true identity. Days before that, her perfectly fine 10-year-old Hyundai  Sonata stalled suddenly ans suspiciously on Interstate 91 after a visit to a car dealer in “Klanchester.” After several suspicious incidents as such on Route 44, she concluded she was being targeted. On July 7, 2016, there was another attempt  in Washington, D.C. to disrupt her career–hence the shootings in Florida, sources said.

A lengthy FBI investigation into attempts to suppress her publication and sabotage business relationships morphed into an extension of Sen. Chris Murphy’s 2013 project about how to survive on food stamps for one week. It was seemingly a creative way to injury Adams if she chooses to challenge Murphy, U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D–Conn.) or other elected officials.  After she was briefed that someone wanted her to run for office and others wanted to stop her, Adams began to explore a bid for the Senate.

Conn. Senator Murphy Takes Food Stamp Challenge

Adams had been covering Gov. Dannel P. Malloy,  Former Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra’s and President Barack Obama’s administrations. She has written several notable commentaries about the state of government and politics. She has taught U.S. History history and journalism at Rutgers and other universities. An award-winning journalist, who has worked for the Hartford Courant, NBC4, News12 Connecticut, Times Herald Record,  Norwich Bulletin and the Washington Post, she takes pride in covering all corners of the state for more than 15 years. Besides media and academic experience, Adams has been involved in the Urban League of Greater Hartford, the West Indian Social Club, Hartford LatinoFest, and other civic organizations and churches.  Adams is a media executive with a legal mind, many observers said. She became a White House Correspondent in 2013.

So April 4, 2014 became a turning point for Adams. And the stories that have unfolded after her most recent interaction with ambassadors, politicians, doctors, social workers and nurses prompted her to run for office–hence  a recent press release by others–asking her to run for office. They  said they watched the corruption surfaced during attempts to  suppress her as a journalist and a historian during two critical years in American history: 2014 and 2105. The year 2104 marked the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement and the year 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.

Noting the lack of representation for working-class and middle-class residents in Congress, Adams, 46, is now exploring a run for the U.S. Senate against Murphy, 43. That’s after witnessing a blatant disregard for the law and a deeper level of corruption in the state. Thanks to a tip from White House staffers, who said she’s more inclusive and patriotic than others they have observed.

The move comes as a surprise to many locals. Others discovered her identity because she was like a Nielsen kid to the federal government. Adams was used as a model for the television character Denise Huxtable, who grew up to be “the real Oliver Pope,” according White House staffers. And several political operatives have been sabotaging her work and home life while the show was on the air. They stole clothes, money, shoes, jewelry and other belongings during the unusual investigation. Investigators wanted the television series, Scandal, off the air because it disrupted Adams and her family.

John Dempsey Hospital Visit

Before laying immobile on the bed almost three years ago, Adams felt a sudden and sharp pain in her abdomen. The pain came while she was in the hospital. She was also scheduled to cover President Obama at the National Action Network’s conference, slated as “the largest civil rights convening of the year bringing our nation’s top activists, political strategists and leading academia together to create an action plan for a civil rights agenda.”

She was told she was being held for further evaluation–only to be told later that there was “nothing wrong.” That’s because she’s thin, toned and not on medication. This hospital visit was the first in a series of overt attempts at media suppression and political obstruction, sources said.  Adams later learned that she was being held because several politicians, who see her as a threat to their candidacy for office, didn’t want her to cover certain political events in the state and in Washington, D.C.  Since August 2013 during the debate on Food Stamps and her article about race matters in Connecticut in, congressional leaders and others began to watch Adams.

The obstruction lasted for two years and 10 months and was watched by the United Nations and the Federal Bureau of Investigations after locals gave them a tip that Adams was being obstructed from running for officer because she had one of the best resumes and profile to mount a formidable challenge against Former Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra, Sen. Murphy, State Rep. Doug McCory (D-07), State Rep. Brandon McGee (D-05), State Rep. Minnie Gonzalez (D-03), U.S.  Congressman John Larson (D-01), State Rep. Kevin Witkos (D-04) and U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D–Conn). Adams, who lives in the 5th Congressional district and owns a business in Hartford, made contact with each representative’s constituent services while other Connecticut residents watched.

The so-called project for Adams morphed into consultations and a tool to keep Adams from covering the White House to serve a full second term in office, sources said. Local residents, who wanted to remain anonymous said they were duped. To date, there are no public arrests, no fixing of the racist political structure and in Connecticut and no money to complete this important project about health reform and how Obamacare was implemented. The project began with the Connecticut Health Foundation’s plan to look at health disparities. It was organized by CHF’s President and CEO Patricia Baker and its Communication Director Maryland Grier. Public Health Commissioner of Health Jewel Mullen was also a part of the project that began before the 2014 election. After a failure to communicate,  the project became a tool to carry out a hate crime.  And a three-year project, which began with Murphy in the 5th Congressional district, was designed to steal Adams’s beauty, money, home and other belongings.

The attempts to cripple Adams physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally was very detailed, said one source. Using hypnosis, State Troopers and local police officers forced her on trains, in hospitals and on planes to exhaust her income and to be away from several public events.  Adams has shown leadership in the community for almost three decades, some say.  Investigators  stayed in her life for an unusual length of time to discover 17 characters and at least 50 scenes from the television series: Scandal.

Murphy and Food Stamp Challenge passed onto Adams in 2013.

Local residents who watched the event and “were recruiting” Adams to run sent out a press releases after learning that President  Obama wanted her to run because she is an exemplary citizen and an immigrant who can best represent all residents in the state, sources said. Her multi-ethnic background and her years of service to the community makes Adams and ideal public servant.

Adams is also the Harriet Algier for the 21st Century, White House staffers said. That’s why locals and others wanted Adams to run for elected office.

Investigators Reveal July 9 White House Bomb Threat Related to “the real Olivia Pope” and Sandy Hook Elementary Shootings

Updated October 22, 2016 4:21 p.m.

By Candace Smith, Staff Writer

AVON, CONN — After more than two years of an intense investigation by the Secret Service and other law enforcement officials, early reports have revealed that the “real Olivia Pope”  is linked to a bomb scare at the White House and the Newtown school shootings.

In videos below, “the real Olivia Pope” is Dr. Ann-Marie Adams, who was recruited by the Washington Post to write a column during 2012 election of Incumbent Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama and Vice Presidential Candidate Joe Biden,  Republican Challenger Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Adams, a 20-year veteran in journalism, is the founder of The Hartford Guardian, an award-winning nonprofit publication based in Hartford, Conn. She has worked at numerous publications, including The Hartford Courant, Norwich Bulletin, Times Herald Record, People magazine, Fox News, NBC4 and the Washington Post since graduating Cum Laude from Brooklyn College’s journalism and theater programs in 1999.

Since then, she has also graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Masters in journalism from Quinnipiac University and a doctoral degree in U.S. History and African Diaspora from Howard University. She was then recruited for a race and gender post doctoral associate position at Rutgers University.

While at Rutgers, Jenkins met with her and offered her a job with the RootDC and the Root as a columnist to write about politics, race and education. And she left the academy to do journalism and complete her book about race and education reform in America. In December 2012, the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting occurred. Like other shootings since the Obama administration, the Newtown shooting is karmic and related to Adams, who is an Omen, sources said.

Adams is God’s Omen. And the disruption to her life, career and family has been documented by the U.S. government, hence a pending human rights abuse case for Adams and her family.

After the July 9, 2015, telephonic bomb threat, Adams was in constant contact with the Secret Service, several of whom informed her of her role as an Omen in President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. She was told that she is an Omen, a gift from God for America. God has restored many blessings on America because Americans say they are one nation under God.

The Omen was used without consent, however. Sources later said that Adams was to remain unaware of her status as an Omen and that she was being used to test the President.  She prayed and read her bible daily and then stopped to ponder  issues in Syria. Then the U.S. State Department imported more Syrians–most of whom are reportedly true believers. The migration coincided with Adams’s rumination of wanting stronger Christians around her. The investigators decided to put heathens around her and to finish the botched investigation, which began in earnest on April 30, 2015. Since then, Adams has been stopped from reading her bible, praying to God and going to church. And her time was used to, among other matters, investigate why there are attempts to suppress her publication. During the lengthy investigation that morphed into consultations, others used her blue print and life lessons to advance their career trajectory.

Because the Obama administration wanted her to remain unaware about her spiritual gifts, sources began to tell her about this secret in the country. And after covert attempts to cripple her twin careers and daily efforts to sabotage her during two critical years in history, others urged her to run  for the U.S. Senate in 2018 and to reveal her true identity.

Also, investigators agreed to reveal this news to the American public after the Obama administration allegedly failed to mitigate the damage to her and her family for this grave intrusion of her privacy since or before January 2012.

Sources said the United Nations and its staffers were also informed that Adams was being abused by the Obama administration and other politicians who wanted her to give them coverage and her blessings. They courted her opinion using some ritual and other government devices so that they would not have to acknowledge the Omen. Hence the abuse of power, sources said.

Church goers in Connecticut, many of whom were involved in the investigation, said they have to acknowledge this important finding that impacts their career and family. The Dec. 14, 2012 shootings in Newtown, Conn is related to the Obama administration taking advantage of Adams as an Omen, sources said. Therefore, it’s karmic.

Adams was on sabbatical from academia after doing research about education reform for about 15 years. She wanted to get remarried and have her son since fall 2010 and revise her dissertation about race, education, reform and the black experience in Connecticut, she said in an interview with locals. Instead, the others used her love for journalism to lure her back into journalism with corporate media. The offer at the Washington Post was promising until the Dec. 12 shooting, undercover investigators said. If she had had her baby in 2010 as planned, her child would have been 6 years-old, they said. The elementary school children were between ages 6 and 7 years.

Some say the shooting by Adam Lanza  occurred because Adams did not marry her fiance and have her son after she left Howard in 2010. Instead, the secret service told her to stay away from Wayne Francis, her then fiance, while they were investigating her. Since then, others have been trying to stop that marriage to “do patch work” on promises made for Adams by others close to the investigation and to this story, they said. Adams wanted proof of this so-called marriage proposal (or job offer) and “bummed it to get the story” about the Obama administration and this strange marriage proposal–or job offer while she’s in Connecticut and they do this investigation. The Obamas have given proof to Adams that the connection was real while the investigation got extended. There was a death threat to kill the president, and Adams reported it to the Communications Office. They began the investigation using Adams’s “Colombo” technique in Connecticut because she was an independent journalist, sources said.

Secret Service agents, many of whom are not currently in the White House, have been involved in this so-called investigation for more than a year after entering her life during Obama and Sen. Edward Kennedy’s visit to Hartford in 2007. Adams covered his visit at the Civic Center.

Adams was an intern with Sen. Edward Kennedy’s Health, Education and Labor Committee office in the Hart building. There, Adams met Kennedy during President Obama’s inauguration on January 20, 2009. Sources said she Kinged Obama in January 2008 on ABC7 in Washington D.C. while at Howard and while in Sen. Kennedy’s office in the Hart building. She was interviewed by the the Christian Science Monitor on Jan. 20, where she gave her opinion on his pending leadership of the country. Since then, her predictions has been fulfilled for Obama and his tenure in office, sources said.  Her keen observations about the Obama administration was based on her blessings from God and her more than 20 years as a government and political reporter in America, investigators said.

“She was clearly unaware that she was an Omen,” one D.C. source said. “The US didn’t want to reveal it until they investigate her to verify her encounters with God.”

However, they learned she was not hired by the Obama administration. Instead of hiring “the real Olivia Pope,” the Obama administration has been using her in secret, sources said. And she has not been paid for her time while they used her help to investigate the July 9 bomb scare, mental health facilities in Connecticut, and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings by Lanza.

“They came to destroy and deceive her and her family,” said one witness who wants an inquiry into this matter. “They have also been trying to kill her in secret, stealing her material possessions and putting her in purgatory to change her facial features. Because she’s an Omen, God is punishing America.”

The videos below show Adams (next to April Ryan) in the video on July 9. Her face was distorted in these videos. Other reporters, for fear of retribution, wanted the Newtown shooting report and the July 9 bomb scare to be public now because of numerous attempts to discredit Adams and stop her from writing about race and ethnicity, sources said.

The videos below give more details of the July 9, 2015 bomb scare. This was supposed an idiotic attempt to tell the world about the Omen because she was kept as a secret in America, sources said. Police are still investigating the criminals who made the bomb threat and held the Omen a hostage, so that she doesn’t give the Obamas any more blessings or find out what was done about the death threat from Connecticut.

Murphy, Other Gun Control Advocates, in Search of Political Wins

WASHINGTON —  This political season, gun control advocates are bolstered by Hillary Clinton’s embrace of their issue and an increase in the political cash they’ve raised, even as they continue to be outgunned by the National Rifle Association when it comes to campaign spending.

The gap is closing this year – thanks largely to increased spending by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Independence USA PAC.

But with fewer resources, gun control advocates are forced to be more targeted and strategic than the NRA, even backing some GOP candidates over Democrats with better records on gun control.

So far, the NRA PAC has donated about $578,000 directly to dozens of federal candidates, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

But the NRA’s real clout comes from the more than $22 million it has spent independently of campaigns so far this year. Most of that money was spent on attack ads aimed at helping Republican candidates.

Meanwhile, Independence USA has nearly doubled the $5.6 million it spent at this point in the 2014 election cycle, spending more than $10.6 million to bolster the campaigns of both Republicans and Democrats.

Bloomberg, an independent and a Clinton supporter, has endorsed Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., citing the senator’s leading role on a background check bill after the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. His PAC has also released an ad featuring Erica Smegielski, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook principal Dawn Hochsprung, saying she’s “grateful” for Toomey.

Bloomberg’s support of Toomey over Democratic challenger Katie McGinty, who has a stronger position on gun control, puzzled many. But he and other gun control advocates are trying to reach out to GOP candidates in order to win Republicans over to their cause, even if it means hurting some Democrats.

Gabrielle Giffords, the former Democratic Arizona congresswoman who was severely wounded in a mass shooting, has endorsed both Toomey and Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill.

Her Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, which has raised $8.2 million, has also spent $2 million in ads in New Hampshire on behalf of Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is seeking to unseat Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

“We have been investing in holding Kelly Ayotte accountable for her support of the gun lobby,” said Mark Prentice, spokesman for the Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC.

Bloomberg’s PAC also has helped Hassan, as has Sen. Christopher Murphy, D-Conn.

Murphy has taken a different approach to helping candidates who would help break the stalemate in Congress over gun control.

With the help of Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Murphy in July established the “Fund to End Gun Violence,” an effort to “bundle” contributions to U.S. House and Senate candidates who would support gun control bills.

Murphy said the idea came to him after he staged a 15-hour filibuster in June to pressure GOP leaders to hold votes on gun bills. He said that two days after seizing the Senate floor, he received more than $100,000 in campaign contributions without sending a single solicitation.

He, Booker and  Schumer are now asking their donors to direct their contributions to other candidates. The senators are not running for re-election this year.

Campaign spokeswoman Laura Maloney said the fund has raised more than $150,000 for endorsed candidates through more than 10,000 individual donations.

“The effort is still ongoing and will go full steam ahead until Election Day as Chris continues to tirelessly work to elect candidates who are committed to ending gun violence,” Maloney said.

U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy filibusters on the Senate floor Wednesday.

The Fund to End Gun Violence has backed only six candidates, all Democrats. Besides Hassan, it has endorsed Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy, who is running against Sen. Marco Rubio, R.-Fla.; Catherine Cortez Masto, a who is running for an open Senate seat in Nevada; Salud Carbajal, who is running for a California seat in the U.S. House of Representatives; Anna Throne-Holst, who is running for Congress in New York; and Val Demings, who is running for Congress in Florida.

Gary Rose, head of the political science department at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, said  gun control advocates may win some races “here and there.”

“In certain states and districts perhaps, but nationally no,” Rose said. “At the national level, the Republican connection with the NRA is pretty strong, and the Republicans hold both houses of Congress.”

But a few political victories would give the gun control advocates evidence that they can be effective, he said, even if those wins do not result in a groundswell of support for gun control legislation in the next Congress.

White House Staffers Reveal “The Real Olivia Pope” Who Hails from Connecticut

Updated October 5, and October 15 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. — More news about “the real Olivia Pope” surfaced this week after sources said she plans to run for the United States Senate against Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

The news comes about two months after Gov. Dannel P. Malloy reportedly asked two White House staffers to resign when he learned about their alleged abuse of power, including an illegal entry into an Avon resident’s home, according to a source in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement officers in Connecticut and Washington, D.C.–some of whom helped to write this story.

According to FBI sources and others close to the White House, Malloy asked the two unidentified staffers to resign after they supposedly interrupted an ongoing and unusual recruitment process to hire a Connecticut woman, who was approached by the White House and political operatives in January 2014.

Local Democrats and Republicans were also involved in the so-called recruitment process and were doing background checks, which they said would last for one year for job candidates considered for a senior or advisory position, according to a former spokesman for the Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance and other local police officers. The encounter lasted for almost two years “because they were trying to cover up thier own crime while they were assigned to watch and protect ‘Obama’s future wife’.”  The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, was told she would begin at the White House on April 16, 2015.

When she arrived at the White House to meet with White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, she and locals who watched the botched investigation  said they “were blindsided.  She was introduced to a woman, Jennifer Friedman, who was presumably hired while recruiters were “still doing research” and at the same time planting stories to discredit her as a strong job candidate.  Friedman, then became the crisis manager who “created the crisis,” sources said. She would reportedly watch the real Olivia Pope and take ideas to do her new job in the Brady Room while she served as Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Press Secretary Office of the Press Secretary. They then decided to suppress attempts to get the story out until the hit television show, Scandal, was off the air. The White House spends about $500 million on its yearly public relations budget, so the decision to to this, said one source, is to perhaps kill the woman after staffers spoke to her about the possibility of First Lady Michelle Obama getting a divorce.

This so-called recruitment seemed like a farce and attempted murder when Friedman and others worked daily to change the woman’s image, including her hair and complexion. Daily micro-aggressions were given out like sport by them and Malloy’s administration, which blamed the Obama administration for  damages done in the state during the so-called interview that morphed into an extended investigation “because of the woman’s personality: witty, feisty and funny.” Additionally, her knowledge and experiences were for various projects in the White House and  for the 2014 and 2016 political campaigns for President Barack Obama and Republican Candidate Donald Trump.

Nativism, she said, dominated the process, which paranormal investigators extended because they were also influenced by a the show. During this unusually long investigation, they were using her varied experiences and skill sets,  rolodex to help solve several attempts to kill her, damage her businesses, stop her from applying to law school, getting a lawyer and applying for other jobs. Officials said they wanted her to be involved in the investigation about her identity and why she has not been hired by the Obama administration. They, including White House Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes and a few Secret Service agents, said she was the real Olivia Pope.

“After they learned that she was indeed the real Oliver Pope,” one source said, they didn’t finalize the contract, or say why they thought that method of recruiting was used for her. They kept showing her scenes that reflected her life experiences and relationships.”

The investigators then focused on what might potentially happen in the future rather than the present, even though the Obamas were already in a committed relationship. And the woman, who has a unique blend of experience in the corporate and nonprofit communities, was held hostage to the investigation to verify her identify and her relationship to President Obama.  During the investigation, she was also forced to keep up appearances at business meetings, receptions and other gatherings in CT and DC. She was unable to work full time during the so-called investigation, which the investigators painstakingly used to prove that the Obamas and their staff are culpable.

“During the so-called investigation law enforcement officers helped to stunt  the woman’s career trajectory, ” sources said. “The idea was to hire her because they were using her during the election campaign and other times. Several staff members, who resigned, wanted the story to come out.”

During the lengthy and arduous investigation for a senior position in the Obama administration, someone in the administration suggested that the real Olivia Pope not work in the White House but should work as a consultant. They assigned others to watch her, including Jessica Allen,  Brian Gabriel and Peter Velz. In the meanwhile, the woman’s ideas, life lessons and blue print for her career trajectory were used by White House staffers and friends of the Obama administration, while they held her in her Avon townhouse, which sits tony suburb 12 miles from Hartford, she said. The woman has been in media and politics for more than 15 years. Other White House staffers had to interrupt the onboarding process, so that those “recruiters,” some of whom were eventually fired, didn’t have access to more  ideas or intelligence from the real Olivia Pope.

Found: Cosby Show Based on Connecticut Family

After being informed by investigators of this unprecedented breach of White House protocol, law enforcement officials helped the woman filed a complaint for unfair labor practices, which included work without pay, theft of services, sexual harassment and forced labor.

After they discovered the story is true, the recruiters abruptly stopped the recruiting process. The woman, who had to be taken out of Connecticut on several occasions because of attempts to kill her, was forced into experimental conditions and hospitals to create medical records. The information was also used  inform policy and other matters in the Obama  Malloy and Pedro Segarra administrations. Before 2014, she was never admitted into a hospital, sources said. She was born in her family’s house.

The unidentified woman, who has ties to political elites in Connecticut, New York and Washington, also complained about theft of services and attempts to discredit her business.

Gov. Malloy and Former Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra’s administration also blocked access to ads, grants and contracts to keep her away from the White House and in bondage. To discredit her claim to be the real Olivia Pope, they deleted Twitter and Facebook followers, stole money, business attire,  luggage,  pictures, IDs,  phones, jewelry, cars and other personal belongings. They continued with other overzealous methods to disrupt her life after the Obama movie was released at the Sundance festival in January 2016, including tampering with her medical records, credit reports and other evidence.

While still with in communication for another position, White House sources stressed that she was the real Oliver Pope, a character in the ABC drama, Scandal.

The investigators showed her at least 50 scenes in the ABC series that are close to her personal encounters with friends and clients. White House staffers told her that’s why she was a victim of a hate crime. They also identified at least 17 characters in the first three seasons.

The “real Olivia Pope” at the White House, darkened in the picture on July 9, 2015 when there was a bomb scare and the press corp was asked to evacuate the Brady Room  at the White House.

The investigators began sabotaging her when they realized the woman is indeed the main character, who was followed by the State Department since 1988. Her personality was also used for the 1980s hit televisions sitcom: The Cosby Show. So the person who played Lisa Bonet’s character, Denise Huxtable, on The Cosby Show grew up to be the real Olivia Pope.

 Several White House staffers thought it was time to reveal the real Olivia Pope, who has little time and resources to actually do this lengthy investigation.

Thus, sources said, the need to cover up the recruiting process and other incidents by prolonging the investigation. Sources also said several political operatives tried to kill her in innocuous ways because they did not want the story to come to fruition, and they wanted Michelle Obama to stay in the White House–despite the alleged crime.

These sources, who feared retaliation, said people have been trying to kill the real Oliver Pope for several years. They also tried to switch the woman’s identity, using Judy Smith as a foil for the real Oliver Pope. And because she was not hired, the Obama administration and their cronies wanted her to run for the U.S. Senate.

It was made clear to the woman that the show’s actress, Kerry Washington, used Judy Smith as a model to prepare for the role. The real Olivia Pope’s identity had to be kept a secret until the end of the investigation.

“It doesn’t mean she’s the real person the show is based on,” sources in the Department of State. “This was an effort to correct this misunderstanding looming large in our country today.”

How Melanie Trump Trumped the First Black First Lady

During the investigation, at least seven people were fired from the Malloy, Segarra and Obama administrations because of the methods used to uncover this story and the attempts to cover up their findings from President Obama, the First Lady and his close advisors.

The perpetrators sometimes used hypnosis and other methods to bring the woman into her Hartford-based business to check for mail and do other matters. Additionally, they would use techniques and devices to interrupt her speech pattern, c and to create flubs during on-air interviews. While she was held hostage in Connecticut and away from the White House, the perpetrators also tried to change her American accents, mannerisms, habits, which were markers of a blending of the middle-class West Indian and African-American cultures that influenced her sensibilities. That’s because the show’s main character is played by an actress, Washington, with a Jamaican mother.

The Hartford Guardian reached out to the Justice Department, the White House Communications Office Press Secretary Josh Earnest, Press Aide Peter Velz and the Secret Service press office for comment. They were unavailable at press time.

White House Defends $500 Million Yearly Public Relations Budget Used to Spread Obama’s Message

Who Earns What at the White House

More videos about the July 9, 2015 bomb threat at the White House. The secret service was guiding “the real Olivia Pope” during the bomb threat and took her earrings as proof of contact there. They said they would meet with her after the investigation of the bomb threat. They have yet to meet with her to explain why shew as not told about the plan to engage her in “a project” or to enter the White House as a staffer. Because of the botched investigation, the secret service agents and others began to darken her face and change her nose to hide her from the viewing public. Apparently the extended investigation was also about the July 9, 2015 bomb scare, sources said after the story was published and updated on Oct. 5. Sources believe the Obama administration is marked by the number of shootings in the country because of what they are doing to “real Olivia Pope” who is an Omen in the land. She was used to help get President Barack Obama in office. And she was used in secret–and not paid. Every time they disrupt her career and her family, there’s an incident in the country, including the December 12 2012 shooting in Newtown, Conn. The Omen has been thoroughly informed of how they have been abusing her in the country. Other reporters want the results of the investigation into the July 9 bomb scare public now. See videos of incident below:

Hillary Clinton and the Millennial Vote

New America Media Hasan Zillur Rahim

SAN JOSE, Calif. — “I poured my heart and soul into Bernie Sanders’s campaign,” a 24-year-old student told me. “Now I really don’t care. Clinton and Trump both repulse me.”

Millennials, between the ages of 18-35 and numbering about 76 million, are a powerful voting bloc. But many are still trying to come to grips with the trauma of a Sanders-less presidential election and are thinking of wasting their vote as a protest of some sort. That would be a colossal mistake, for they can play a critical role in propelling Hillary Clinton to victory over Donald Trump in this most consequential of elections.

Why should millennials vote for Clinton? It comes down to the intersection of their passion with Clinton’s policies in three E’s: Education, Economy and Ecology. They should carefully consider where the two candidates stand on these issues, reject false equivalences, and vote accordingly.

Education: The most contentious issue here is the staggering 1.4 trillion dollar student-loan Americans currently carry, a number growing by about $3K every second. Neither candidate has promised to forgive the trillion-dollar debt but during the primaries, Clinton countered Sanders’s assertion to make college free for everyone by saying that his numbers just didn’t add up. However, Clinton has made college affordability – directly tied to student debt – central to her policy. She would give families making up to $125,000 free tuition at in-state public colleges and universities to help middle and working-class families.

IRS Aims to Bring Facebook to Court Again

By Adam Stuhlman I @stuhlman_adam

In January 2013, one Hartford resident was in the United States Tax Court because she couldn’t pay a $213 tax bill. She was unemployed. However, Internal Revenue Service lawyers debated penalties for refusing to pay $213, which should have been deducted for educational tax credit.

Then in February 2013 news broke that Facebook amassed a billion in profit in the previous year and did not pay taxes. In fact, Facebook was expecting a refund.

Like many, she wanted an answer to this blatant disparity in how the court system meted out justice to individual tax payers.

Now the IRS is fighting to get Facebook back to court over allegations that the social media giant has avoided paying taxes through shifting money overseas.

Matt Gardner, executive director for the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, said Facebook has been shifting money out of the United States to Facebook Ireland and the Cayman Islands. He said they have also used a legal stock option tax break to reduce the amount of taxes they have to pay.

“The interesting thing about Facebook on this front is that the IRS has been trying to get Facebook to cooperate with their investigation into this precise issue for some time,” said Gardner. “The IRS has issued something like a half dozen different summons to Facebook, which Facebook has basically ignored.”

According to documents from their website, Facebook’s

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg

$5 billion revenue in 2012 represented a 37 percent increase from $3.7 billion in 2011.


Citizens for Tax Justice, a partner organization with ITEP, said that Facebook paid nothing in income taxes in 2012. Gardner said the IRS has issued at least six summons for Facebook to appear in court.

IRS Spokesperson Yadira Nadal declined to comment on this, saying that federal law prohibits the IRS from commenting on any taxpayer, organization’s situation, or case.

Anteneh Daniel, executive for The Brunswick Group, said in an email that Facebook’s statement from their media relations department is as follows:

“Facebook applies with the rules and regulations of all countries where we operate and we have no further comment at this time.”

The Brunswick Group is an advisory firm that “specializes in critical issues and corporate relations,” according to

“It is very difficult to tell what these assets are worth. When companies aggressively seek to lowball the value of these assets it can be very difficult for the IRS to catch up with that and make them value it (assets) correctly,” Gardner said. “That is what makes it a hard thing to police and monitor.”

Gardner said transfer pricing rules are put in place to make sure that when companies transfer assets overseas, “they do so at a fair price.” But the difficulty in enforcing these laws makes it harder on the IRS. He said the only solution is to make sure the IRS has the proper funding and the authority to go after companies that break the law.

While the IRS may be having difficulty with Facebook, it keeps on going when it comes to collecting taxes from other citizens. An April 2014 Gallop poll revealed that 66 percent of Americans feel that corporations pay too little in taxes, with the middle class paying too much. It also said that 40 percent of Republicans felt that lower income individuals pay to less in taxes, as compared to 22 percent of Independents and 11 percent of Democrats.

Connecticut residents want to know whether lawyers in the Office of Chief Counsel, namely William Borgardus and Debra Lynn Reale, are still targeting nonprofit organizations and individuals after news of Facebook’s victory over the IRS.

Multiple calls and emails to the IRS about lack of corporate income tax and any potential impact this may have on other citizen’s taxes were not returned.

Clinton’s ‘Basket of Deplorables’ Comment Was Right

Last Friday, Donald Trump used his side gig—Republican nominee for president—to go back to what he’s actually qualified for, real estate, and hawk his new hotel. A few Medal of Honor recipients allowed themselves to be extras in his two-for-one informational, and one of them used the opportunity to address Hillary Clinton’s critique about a certain faction of Trump supporters. “Deplorables are also deployables,” the Vietnam veteran quipped. He did so with the widest smile on his face—just to let you know that he was pleased with himself.


Ever since Clinton uttered the phrase “basket of deplorables,” Trump’s most ardent supporters have tried to offer addenda to the claim: That they are “hard-working Americans.” They have families. And in this case, they have served their country. Fair enough, but you can be all those things and still either be racist, or at the very least, willing to support someone who is—which ultimately proves that when you get down to it, you’re not that committed to a belief in equality for all.

It is to be expected of them, but there’s also a noticeable contingent of others who have tried to take greater issue over charges of racism than racism itself.

Connecticut Family Claims Rights to The Cosby Show

By Rose Mendes, Staff Writer

The 1980s Cosby Show ran on NBC from September 1984 to April 1992 and became an American household favorite sitcom. New revelation: The television sitcom was based on a blended middle-class family in Hartford, Conn.

That’s according to The Hartford Guardian’s White House Correspondent Ann-Marie Adams, who reportedly learned about this secret from Ben Rhodes, the Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications for U.S. President Barack Obama. Since June 2014, Rhodes and others have been investigating Adams. The lengthy investigation led to new revelations about American history and culture. And White House staffers and others believe it’s time to reveal their findings to the American people.

The Cosby Show is based on an immigrant family from Jamaica. In Jamaica, they family is considered black. Here in America, they are considered African American and Hispanic. The degrees of mestizaje were noted in the blended family’s picture–mainly the complexion of each character.

The Cosby Show's character, Denise Huxtable, was based on Ann-Marie Adams.

The Cosby Show’s character, Denise Huxtable, was based on Ann-Marie Adams who emigrated from Jamaica.

The Cosby Show was a popular comedy television series about the Huxtable family, a middle class family in America. So many might question the authenticity of Adams’ claim. However, the facts and pictures should verify the claim.  Adams’s parents and her siblings are similar to each character on the first few episodes of the show. And Bill Cosby, who is facing rape and sexual assault claims, does not.  Cosby has five children. Only four children were in the first episodes that made it a household hit.

Sources said the idea for the sitcom and its first few episodes were mainly based on Adams’s family model while they were in Jamaica.

The similarity is seen in the first few characters and the premise in the show, which has a universal theme: a middle-class black family with a favorite daughter.  For example, Heathcliff, ‘Cliff’ Huxtable is based on Adams’ father, who was a government worker and a small business owner in Jamaica. Clair Huxtable, played by Phylicia Rashad, is based on Adam’s mother and sister, who were a housewives.  Cliff and Clair are American citizens. And Adams’s  father and mother, Headly and Minetta,  were Jamaican citizens in the 1980s. They became American citizens in the 1990s.

Adams’s personality was adopted for the character, Denise Huxtable. Her brother, Errol, is Theo and was played by Malcolm Jamal-Warner. Adams’ sister, Andrea, was Vanessa on the show and was played by Tempest Bledstone.  Adams’s younger brother, Tony, was Rudy, clearly changed to a girl in the sitcom. Rudy was played by Kiesha Knight Pulliam.

Adam’s niece, Francesca, was played by Raven Symone, who later joined the show. Other family members who were seemingly represented on the show were Adams’s older sister Marcia and her brother, Lloyd. For Marcia’s, the show added Sabrina LeBeauf, who played Sondra Huxtable. And they added Geoffrey Owens, who played  Elvin Tibideaux. The characters’ complexion tell the story about Adams and her family as new American citizens.

See photo of the Adams’ s family members, who were used as models for The Cosby Show. Afterward, other characters–also based on family members, were added:

When askethe-cosby-show-family-based-on-jamaican-immigrantsd about this revelation from the Obama administration, Adams said she was not surprised. She’s been likened to Denise in the past. There’s also no need to wait for any validation for that fact, she said.

“The Obama administration presented facts. I think it’s the decent thing to do so America can correct its past mistake of keeping this a secret,” Adams said. “I thank the Obama administration for doing the right thing.”

The spinoff, A Different World, was based on Adams as a student at Howard University. Her friend Benjamin Baker was played by Kadeem Hardison. Whitley Gilbert’s character was also based on student at Howard.

Rhodes information was corroborated by other  sources in the State Department and other White House staffers, who wanted to remain anonymous.

Rhodes said The Cosby Show and other movies and sitcoms were based on Adams as the central character because she’s an Omen, or a True Biliever in Jesus Christ. She’s clearly a gift from God. She is “the faithful witness of Christians in the face of opposition and or a symbol of hope for a restored people of God.” Most true believer of Christ, Rhodes said, should know what to do with an Omen, who was brought to the U.S. for God’s blessings to rain on us.

According to records, Cosby said the sitcom was based on not his family but on his the standup comedy of Cosby. His bio says the show focused on his observations of family life. That family life, in the beginning of the sitcom, was that of Adams’s life with her father Headly Mesquita, her mother Minetta Nugent and her siblings.

The sitcom came after U.S. President Ronald Reagan visited Jamaica in 1982. Reagan served as the 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Adams and her family were watched like a Nielsen family since the 1980s, sources said. The Cosby Show aired for eight seasons on NBC from Sept. 20, 1984 to April 30, 1992.

As to why television producers and the U.S. government would use Adams’s family for an American sitcom will not be debated by Adams. But she said someone told her that’s why they all came to America to be Americanized.

“I have no problem with that,” she said. “I love America. I have no reason to doubt these facts.”

The Cosby Show ran on NBC from 1984 to 1992

The Cosby Show ran on NBC from 1984 to 1992 and became a huge hit  winning six Emmys, two Golden Globes. It was also rated number one in the Nielsen ratings for five years in a row.

Connecticut Education Reform is Failing Our Students

By Wayne Winsley

The far-reaching and (depending upon who you ask) controversial decision of Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher ordered the state of Connecticut to come up with a new funding formula for public schools, devise clear standards for both the elementary and high school levels, overhaul the state’s system of evaluating teachers, principals and superintendents, and change the way Connecticut funds special education services.

All well and good from the policy side, but let us not forget the other end of the equation. Any real education reform must take the actual students into account.

the-hartford-guardian-OpinionThis court case was launched over 11 years ago. Many of the students who were in school at that time have been pushed through the educational system and we are still paying to feed them either via welfare system or the penal system.

What about the students who are in our schools right now?

What are we doing to help them do better?

As a teacher, (I’m a middle school history teacher), I can say with certainty that whether a school is rich, poor, or in between, there is no “policy” that can make a child study if he or she doesn’t want to.

The dropout rate cannot be substantially reduced without giving students a compelling reason to stick with their education.

Raising student achievement cannot be accomplished without students who are motivated to achieve.

To close the achievement gap, we have to pull from both sides.

Governor. Dannel P. Malloy says, “We know that to improve outcomes for all Connecticut students and to close persistent achievement gaps, we need to challenge the status quo and take bold action.”

I agree 100 percent. It is time to take action to save the students that are currently struggling in too many of our schools.

While the politicians and lawyers bicker about what needs to be done and how to pay for it, we must throw a lifeline to our children that are sinking right now.

As Judge Moukawsher pointed out, Connecticut’s poorest schools are posting results worse than the poorest schools of 40 other states and is no better than the other nine.

Our children deserve better.

To close the achievement gap we must work from both ends. We must give our students the tools to achieve AND we must increase our students desire to achieve.
