Douglas Wilder and the Slavery Museum

1. While the former illustrious governor spent $1.4 million moving the school board out of city hall against the law. It amazes me how government entities allow the members of Sigma Pi Phi, the boule, to get away with so many objectionable acts. It was reported that several of his friends received payment for the move. Wilder was never indicted nor was he required to return the money. The police chief at the time was there with the police to oversee the move. Here in Richmond there are a number of boule members being paid with city dollars include mayor, Rev. Dwight C. Jones and the commonwealth attorney, Michael Herring.

2. It was found that approximately $175,000 was missing from Wilder's campaign and someone indicted his son, Lawrence Wilder, Jr. He was not indicted by local government, but evidently by the federal government who then proceeded to find Wilder, Jr. guilty (unbeknowst to the public). One of the Judges there is James Spencer who is also a member of the boule. Although Wilder is named a democrat, the current republican governor of Virginia, McDonnell, gave young Wilder a job in his cabinet. Did Wilder's son actually take the money or did he take the rap for his father or someone else?

Now, we come to the Slavery Museum. More money missing. Now they want to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy which absolves all the payment to creditors. Why would the federal court grant them a right to bankruptcy when it has been proven that the money was not properly handled? The federal courts have several judges that would be sympathetic to the boule because several of the boule are in the boule.


Museum loses its charity status
Slavery museum loses nonprofit status.

RICHMOND
--The bankrupt U.S. Slavery Museum in Fredericksburg has lost its federal ability to receive tax-deductible donations for failure to file tax returns.
The IRS automatically revokes the tax-exempt status of nonprofits that fail to file tax returns for three years in a row.
The slavery museum last filed a federal tax return in 2007. Its revocation was effective last year, according to the IRS' website.
The museum declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy last fall, to stall the city of Fredericksburg's attempt to auction the museum's 38 acres of land for back taxes. The museum owes the city about $254,000 in property taxes, which haven't been paid since 2008.
Late last week, the museum's lawyer, Sandra Robinson, filed a plan for reorganization with federal bankruptcy court in Richmond.
In that plan, Robinson said the museum is working to regain its state authority to solicit charitable donations, and would rely on such donations to eventually repay its creditors. The museum's debts total about $7 million.
Robinson's plan predicts that the museum would raise $900,000 in donations in the first year, and would repay Fredericksburg in $15,000 installments each quarter for four years.
As part of the museum's effort to regain state authority to raise money, it has hired an accountant to file the missing tax returns for the years since 2008.
According to the IRS, a nonprofit can apply to have its tax-exempt status reinstated.
The museum is due back in court in Richmond next week for a status hearing on the bankruptcy case.

Next time on the radio

 Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25Behold, I have told you before.

26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.on blog talk radio by calling 213-260-0900) to listen  and listening on the phone or follow me at www.blogtalkradio.com/divastoo .  The last show was about L.
