Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim Exemplifies Beauford Delaney’s Masterful Portraits

Beauford Delaney (1901-1979) “Portraitist of the Famous

“Perhaps I should say, flatly, what I believe–that he is a great painter, among the very greatest; but I do know that great art can only be created out of love, and that no greater lover has ever held a brush.”

James Baldwin (1924-1987), writer,
friend of artist Beauford Delaney

Beauford Delaney, hailed as the most important African-American artists of the 20th century, whose life appeared to symbolize the mythical artistic existence of privation and relative obscurity, that show a retrospective of “uninhibited colorist (though never an unintelligent one)” that is “apotheosized” and whose talent and “free, open and outgoing nature” engendered admiration from everyone whom was fortunate enough to encounter him as he was THE darling of the international culture scene in New York and Paris. James Baldwin called him his “spiritual father.”

Remembering THE Greatest artists of the 20th century, the ‘amazing and invariable’ Beauford Delaney, the “Portraitist of the Famous”, who’s masterpieces are trumpeted as cutting-edge work in Black aesthetics, stylistic evolution from representation to pure abstraction, with new and radical theories with his techniques and expression of the politics of Black arts, affording him his very own, singular serious stature among abstract expressionists, transforming the critical landscape into a growing interest in his creation of “Black Abstraction”!

For more than a decade, Delaney showed compelling, vibrant images of energetic life: produced engaging abstract works, portraits, landscapes, and abstractions celebrated for their brilliance and technical complexity with his dramatic stylistic shift from figurative compositions of life to abstract expressionist studies of color and light, powerful works of art and culture, illuminate some of Delaney’s most innovative years and firmly place his work among the dominant art movements of the day.

The fascinating Beauford Delaney is a Modern artist who produced engaging portraits, landscapes, and abstractions celebrated for their brilliance and technical complexity with his dramatic stylistic shift from figurative compositions of New York life to abstract expressionist studies of color and light following his move to Paris in 1953, illuminate some of Delaney’s most innovative years and firmly place his work among the dominant art movements of the day! 

The career of Beauford Delaney (1901-79) was mainly working with Expressionism, Harlem Renaissance who’s first exhibition was New Names In American Art: Recent Contributions To Painting And Sculpture By Negro Artists at The Renaissance Society in Chicago, IL in 1944, and the most recent exhibition was Art Basel Miami Beach 2020 – online viewing only at Art Basel Miami Beach in Miami Beach, FL in 2020. Beauford Delaney is mostly exhibited in United States, but also had exhibitions in Germany, United Kingdom and elsewhere. Delaney has 10 solo shows and 79 group shows over the last 76 years (for more information, see biography). Delaney has also been in 7 art fairs but in no biennials. The most important show was Beauford Delaney: From New York to Paris at Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, PA in 2005. Other important shows were at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, MN and The Studio Museum in Harlem in New York City, NY. Beauford Delaney has been exhibited with Norman Lewis and Romare Bearden. Beauford Delaney’s art is in 9 museum collections, at France at the Museum of Modern Art , École des Beaux-Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, NY and The Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, IL, featured in Jet and Playboy magazines among others.

Beauford Delaney is ranked among the Top 10 globally, and in United States. Delaney’s best rank was in 1944, the artist’s rank has improved over the last 5 years, with the most dramatic change in 1992. 

Many of its prominent figures, who admiringly looked upon Delaney as their “Shaman” or “Yogi” and fondly referred to him as a “Black Buddha”, were described by his close friend, James Baldwin, as a “cross between Brer Rabbit and St. Francis of Assisi.” 

His list of friends and acquaintances including artists, World Leaders, politicians, activist, authors/poets/writers, intellectuals, filmmakers, promoted by numerous patrons of the arts, world Cultural Ambassadors, art gallery owners, befriended by notable figures, and musicians Stuart Davis — his closest painter compatriot — W.E.B. Du Bois (whose portrait he painted), Salvadore Dalí (whose portrait he painted), Countee Cullen, Louis Armstrong (whose portrait he painted), Duke Ellington (whose portrait he painted), Ethel Waters (whose portraits he painted), W.C. Handy (whose portrait he painted), Henry Miller (who wrote a tribute to him), John F. Kennedy (whose portraits he painted), Robert Kennedy (whose portraits he painted), Jean-Claude Killy (whose portraits he painted), Herb Gentry, Alain Locke, Cy Twombly, Sterling Brown,  Langston Hughes, Georgia O’Keeffe (who drew charcoal and pastel portraits of Delaney in 1943), Augusta Savage, Stuart Davis, John Marin, Pablo Picasso (whose portrait he painted), Richard A. Long (whose portrait he painted), John Koenig (whose portrait he painted), and Claude McKay were connected to Paris in various ways. 

Also significant is the impact of jazz, as exemplified by the avante garde “free jazz” music explosion of Ornettte Coleman, Archie Shepp, Cecil Taylor, Frank Wright, Bobby Few, Bill Dixon, François Cotinaud, Sunny Murray, Barney Wilen, Globe Unity Orchestra, Andrew Hill, Dave Burrell, Anthony Braxton, Leroy Jenkins, Grachan Moncur III, Malachi Favors, Claude Delcloo, Beb Guérin, Kenneth Terroade, Bernard Vitet, Lester Bowie, Jerome Cooper, Joseph Jarman, Joachim Kühn, Steve Lacy, Roscoe Mitchell, Robin Kenyatta, Michel Portal, Irène Aebi, Ronnie Beer, Kent Carter, Dieter Gewissler, Oliver Johnson, Famoudou Don Moye, Alan Shorter, Bernard Vitet, Jouk Minor, Byard Lancaster, Kenneth Terroade, Paul Jeffrey, Ronnie Beer, Sonny Sharrock, Pharoah Sanders, Black Harold, Johnny Dyani, Gary Windo, Rene Augustus, Joseph Déjean, Beb Guérin, Claude Delcoo, Clifford Thornton, Wayne Shorter, Sun Ra and His Intergalactic Research Arkestra, François Tusques, Alan Silva and the Celestrial Communication Orchestra.

Hayden (whose portrait he painted), art dealer Darthea Speyer (whose portrait he painted) who had exhibitions of Delaney’s art at Paris’ Galerie Lambert in 1964. Others include artists Charles Boggs, Al Hirschfeld, John Franklin Koenig, Harold Cousins, Herbert Gentry (whose portrait he painted), Ed Clark, and Ellis Wilson, authors James Jones and Henry Miller (who was also a water colorist), Writers Richard Wright, Surrealist poet Stanislas Rodanski, Chester Himes, Ralph Ellison, William Gardner Smith, Richard Gibson, Lorraine Hansberry, Ted Joans, art historian Richard A. Long, and his friend Lynn Stone.

Delaney became close friends with another influential visual artist, Lawrence Calcagno. A white, abstract landscape artist from Northern California, it was an unlikely pairing when the two met in Paris. Yet the two men grew to share a close artistic bond, tied by their shared belief in the spiritual nature of painting and abstraction. They also became close personal friends, writing hundreds of letters to each other over Delaney’s later years, after Calcagno left Paris to return to America. In these letters, Delaney is at his most vulnerable and open, as he felt with a kindred spirit.

His closest lifelong friend, however, was James Baldwin — who, while fleeing a strict father at 16, looked up Delaney in the Village. He later called the artist his “principal witness.” Delaney was a kind of surrogate nurturing father to the writer. Judging by his 1941 Dark Rapture (James Baldwin), a steamy nude portrait of the 16-year-old writer (as well as from subsequent Baldwin portraits over the decades), Delaney seems to have been in love with the lithe young man 22 years his junior.

Indeed, while Delaney had not intended to settle permanently in Europe, he quickly realized he had found there a more hospitable climate in which to pursue his craft. Asked about his experience as an expatriate he replied, “Expatriate? It appears to me that in order to be an expatriate one has to be, in some manner, driven from one’s fatherland, from one’s native land. When I left the United States during the 1950s no such condition was left behind. One must belong before one may then not belong. I belong here in Paris, I am able to realize myself here. I am no expatriate.”

While Paris had in some sense liberated Delaney, there were sorrows he could not escape. “There always seems to be the shadow,” Delaney wrote to a benefactor, “which follows the light.” Although he was referring to the financial difficulties that plagued him throughout his career, the artist could also have been talking about his struggles with mental illness, which manifested as psychotic breaks and ghostly voices in his head, resulting in his confinement to a mental hospital at the end of his life. While Delaney was a mentor to Baldwin during the author’s early years, Baldwin later became Delaney’s protector, assisting him financially and emotionally. For an introduction to an exhibition in Paris in 1964 Baldwin wrote, “Perhaps I am so struck by the light in Beauford’s paintings because he comes from darkness—as I do, as, in fact, we all do.” The vibrant luminosity of Composition 16 is but one example of Delaney’s lifelong quest to find light in that darkness.

Many felt him to be the “Dean of African American Artists Living in Europe.” Although he never fully wanted this distinction most of Delaney’s works were close to being classified as abstract art. Beauford Delaney died in Paris at age 78 on March 26, 1979.

Delaney lived and worked in Paris for many years and much of his work was neglected until a retrospective in 1978 at the Studio Museum in Harlem.  During his absence, the French government, in an effort to collect delinquent accounts, sealed off his apartment and prepared to auction off his products of nearly a forty year career.  Many of his works were stolen and some had to be recovered by European Intelligence, the CIA/FBI. Had the works been sold, dispersed throughout Europe, the neglect may have been irreversible.

The painter Beauford Delaney (Knoxville 1901-1979 Paris) was lost to history for a time. Yet in the mid-twentieth century, Delaney was considered an important artist of his generation.

Following his death, he was praised as a great and neglected painter but, with a few notable exceptions, the neglect continued.

A retrospective of his work at the Studio Museum in Harlem a year before his death did little to revive interest in his work. It was not until the 1988 exhibition Beauford Delaney: From Tennessee to Paris, curated by the French art dealer Philippe Briet at the Philippe Briet Gallery, that Delaney’s work was again exhibited in New York, followed by two retrospectives in the gallery: “Beauford Delaney: A Retrospective [50 Years of Light]” in 1991, and “Beauford Delaney: The New York Years [1929–1953]” in 1994.

Delaney disappeared from collective memory partly due to the racial bias of art history, which, among other things, meant that even while he was celebrated, it was less as a painter equal to his contemporaries than as some kind of Negro seer or spiritual black Buddha wherein he could not escape the long American night of racism. 

“Whatever Happened to Beauford Delaney?”, an article by Eleanor Heartney, appeared in Art in America in response to the 1994 exhibition asking why this once well regarded “artist’s artist” was now virtually unknown to the American art public. “What happened? Is this another case of an over-inflated reputation returning to its true level? Or was Delaney undone by changing fashions which rendered his work unpalatable to succeeding generations? Why did Beauford Delaney so completely disappear from American art history?” The author believed that Delaney’s disappearance from the consciousness of the New York art world was linked to “his move to Paris at a crucial moment in the consolidation of New York’s position as the world’s cultural capital and his work’s irrelevance to the history of American art as it was being written by critics” at the time. The article concludes, “Today [1994] as those histories unravel and are replaced by narratives with a more varied and colorful weave, artists like Delaney can be seen in a new light.”

In 1985 James Baldwin described the impact of Delaney on his life, saying he was “the first living proof, for me, that a black man could be an artist. In a warmer time, a less blasphemous place, he would have been recognized as my Master and I as his Pupil. He became, for me, an example of courage and integrity, humility and passion. An absolute integrity: I saw him shaken many times and I lived to see him broken but I never saw him bow.” Baldwin marveled over Delaney’s ability to emulate such light in his work despite the darkness he was surrounded by for the majority of his life. It is this insight of Delaney’s past, Baldwin believes, that serves as evidence for the true victory Delaney secured. Baldwin admired his keen ability to “lead the inner and the outer eye, directly and inexorably, to a new confrontation with reality.” He further wrote, “Perhaps I should not say, flatly, what I believe – that he is a great painter – among the very greatest; but I do know that great art can only be created out of love, and that no greater lover has ever held a brush.”

His work is sold in galleries for increasingly high prices, and his paintings hang prominently among modernist and postwar works in New York’s Museum of Modern Art [where his yellow Composition 16 (1954-56) was hung next to a work by Mark Rothko], the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum, and the National Portrait Gallery (notably a portrait of Baldwin). The American artist Glenn Ligon curated a 2015 exhibition at the Tate Liverpool titled Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions” that featured two works by Delaney (one a portrait of Baldwin) and put Delaney in the company of the Abstract Expressionists, next to a picture by Franz Kline.

Because his estate has been largely closed to scholars to the present day, and because his reputation waned after his death, critical writing about Delaney is almost nonexistent, even with the flourishing of Baldwin studies across disciplines. 

The Studio Museum of Harlem broke ground with the first major posthumous exhibition of Delaney on US soil with Beauford Delaney: A Retrospective (1979) and included the full text of Baldwin’s previously published essay “Introduction to Exhibition of Beauford Delaney Opening December 4, 1964 at the Gallery Lambert.” There have been other exhibitions of Delaney’s work since 2000 that include Baldwin in minor ways and whose catalogues have provided most of the critical work done recently on Delaney to date: these include Beauford Delaney: Liquid Light: Paris Abstractions 1954-1970, organized by Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in 1999; Beauford Delaney’ at the Sert Gallery of the Harvard University Art Museums;  An Artistic Friendship: Beauford Delaney and Lawrence Calcagno at the Palmer Museum of Art at the Pennsylvania State University in 2001; The Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA; Beauford Delaney: The Color Yellow, organized by the High Museum of Art in 2002 and curated by Richard J. Powell, who contributed a groundbreaking essay about Delaney’s use of color; Beauford Delaney: New York to Paris (2005), organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art, whose robust catalog features several scholarly essays mentioning James Baldwin; Beauford Delaney: Renaissance of Form and Vibration of Color (2016) at Montparnasse’s Reid Hall and sponsored by Wells International Foundation and Les Amis de Beauford Delaney, along with Columbia Global Centers/Reid Hall Exposition; and Gathering Light: Works by Beauford Delaney (2017) at the Knoxville Museum of Art in Tennessee. Aside from the catalogue essays from these and other exhibitions, the only monograph devoted to Delaney is the 1998 biography by David Leeming, Amazing Grace: A Life of Beauford Delaney (1998). Leeming outlines the broad arc of Delaney’s life and artistic development while emphasizing the contrast between the artist’s vibrant social life and troubled inner life that led to his institutionalization in the late 1970s. It is encouraging to see, however, that references to Delaney are now appearing in cutting-edge work on Black aesthetics, such as Fred Moten’s theoretical work, and in reconstructions of LGBTQIA arts.

While previous Delaney exhibitions and publications have almost exclusively emphasized Delaney’s stylistic evolution from the 1940s to the 1960s, from representation to pure abstraction, as a function of his move from New York to Paris and/or his worsening mental health, the proposed symposium will put Delany into conversation with new and radical theories about the techniques and politics of Black arts, affording him some of the first serious treatment by academic criticism to date. Because of Delaney’s stature among abstract expressionists, the project will contribute to a growing interest in the past ten years concerning “Black Abstraction” in the arts, as evidence by shows at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery (2014), the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston (2014), Pace Gallery (2016), Anita Shapolsky Gallery and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. (2018). It is time to bring Delaney also into the sphere of queer theory, new Black aesthetics, and new theories of Black care that are transforming the critical landscape in academe and in which Baldwin is now frequently found.

But his life ended very much like it began. Even after the fame and notoriety, he was still a poor, black man with many struggles. Just like his art, Delaney’s life was filled with light and darkness. Highs and lows.

If you were to picture a counter-image to help balance that perception in one person, you could hardly do better than Beauford Delaney. He was black, he was gay, he was unpredictable, he was charismatic. He was an intellectual, and he was an artist, in fact a wildly colorful, creative and unpredictable abstract expressionist. He was cosmopolitan, connected to the world beyond, and adored in Paris and New York, where his paintings, some of them famous and very expensive, have been exhibited, even recently.

NOTE

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim (c.1971) exemplifies Beauford Delaney’s masterful portraits in which he uses bold, contrasting color to express an arresting psychological and emotional likeness. With his signature yellow palette and expressive brushstroke, Delaney portrays his friend Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim.

Throughout his career, Beauford Delaney executed modernist and psychologically compelling portraits of friends,  acquaintances and patrons. Portraits of those he knew intimately, tended to be the most compelling and profound. Generally, Delaney’s portrait paintings tend to be modernist, melding representation with abstraction, sharing a strong affinity with the gestural luminous abstractions that dominated Delaney’s oeuvre after 1953. Even after Delaney evolved into an abstract expressionist painter upon his move to France in September 1953, he continued to paint portraits that were much more than straightforward depictions of his sitters. While the composition was defined by the subject, he executed modernist canvases defined by his relatively monochromatic fields of color and distinctive brushwork. Like Delaney’s landscapes, cityscapes and interiors of his Greene Street period of the 1940s and early 1950s, the faces, bodies and backgrounds of his portraits were vehicles for his personal language of abstraction. Art historian Richard J. Powell writes:

“In addition to his artistic commitment to abstraction, experimenting with painted surfaces in oil pigments, and delving into the visual effects and relational possibilities of color, Beauford Delaney was equally bound to an art of portraiture. The genre that first brought Delaney critical notice and a measure of success, portraiture exemplified his genuine love of people – all kinds of people – and his fascination with their outward appearances, personalities, minds, and auras. As seen in almost every early photograph of Delaney – whether in his crowded Greene Street studio or sitting alongside his work at the Annual Washington Square Art Fair – portraits largely defined his as an artist. Yet…portraiture was also a vehicle for sorting out an array of primarily visual issues: concerns of color and form that could easily be coupled with his painting a friend’s likeness or an esteemed individual’s spirit.”*2

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim recalls meeting Beauford Delaney and sitting for his portrait in Paris in 1971, when al-Hakim was around twenty years old. al-Hakim was born Randy Wallace before converting to Islam and changing his name.

Curator Patricia Sue Canterbury writes of Delaney’s portraits of the 1960s:

“Delaney’s portraiture during the 1960s, although often regarded as a departure from the artist’s abstract explorations of light, was actually an extension of the same. As he had reassured viewers at the opening of his solo show at the Galerie Lambert in late 1964, abstraction and portraiture ‘were studies in light revealed – the light that have meaning to the individuals depicted…and the light considered directly as contained…in the abstract paintings.’ As the decade progressed, however, it is clear that any boundaries perceived between the two became increasingly blurred. Solid forms within the portraits dematerialized and the subject and the enveloping atmosphere seemingly shared the same atomic structure.”*2

Powell writes of Delaney’s use of a yellow palette:

“Delaney’s artistic preoccupation with the color yellow is governed by its capacity to illuminate a world in which poverty, inhumanity, lovelessness, mediocrity, and darkness threaten his soul and being. No stranger to assaults on the body and psyche, Delaney sought in his work and throughout his entire life to experience that state of perfect bliss in nature and society, to reach that nearly unattainable note or apogee of emotional discernment in the arts, and to know that ecstatic feeling of an ‘excessive and deliberate joy’ in life. Oddly enough, by placing himself and his audience in his dense and luxurious yellow zone, he realized these grand ambitions.”*3

Spratley, Esquire, Court Appointed Administrator; Courtesy of Michael Rosenfeld Gallery LLC, New York, NY Beauford Delaney was an American Harlem Renaissance painter known for his colorful Modernist compositions and distinctive approach to figuration. One of the most important African-American artists of the early 20th century, he often painted New York street scenes, lively scenes in jazz clubs, and portraits of prominent black figures like James Baldwin and W.E.B. Du Bois. Can Fire in the Park (1946) is one of his most iconic images, movingly capturing a common occurrence in Depression-era New York life. In addition to his representational work, Delaney also painted abstractly, noting that “the abstraction, ostensibly, is simply for me the penetration of something that is more profound in many ways than the rigidity of a form,” he explained. “A form if it breaths some, if it has some enigma to it, it is also the enigma that is the abstract, I would think.” Born on December 30, 1901 in Knoxville, TN as one of 10 children, he worked as sign-post painter as a teenager before going on to study in Boston at the Massachusetts Normal School, the South Boston School of Art, and the Copley Society. After school, he moved to Harlem in New York, where he befriended fellow artists like Alfred Stieglitz, Stuart Davis, who introduced him to the work of Modernists like Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and others. He moved to Europe in 1953 but was unable to find the same success he had previously had in New York, and gradually succumbed to alcoholism and mental health problems before his death on March 26, 1979 in Paris, France. Today, Delaney’s works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others. Fame, at least lasting fame — the your-work-goes-down-in-history kind, often accompanied by fat royalty payments — is a club that thinks of itself as an unbiased meritocracy, blind to everything but aesthetic innovation and popular success. It’s never quite worked out that way. When we look at the past, we still see generations of great talents who never quite got their due critically or commercially, many of them left relatively unsung. In this ongoing series, our critics pick artists they feel remain underappreciated and tell their stories and sing their praises. “He is amazing … this Beauford,” the novelist Henry Miller wrote of his lifelong friend Beauford Delaney in a 1945 essay that helped make the painter (whom Miller called a “black monarch” capable of making “the great white world … grow smaller”) a legendary attraction in Greenwich Village. So much so that people often gathered outside Delaney’s building at 181 Greene Street, where he lived and worked on the top floor — a walk-up lit only by a wood-burning potbellied stove. Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1901, Delaney migrated north to Boston in 1923 to study art, then moved to New York in November 1929, days after the onset of the Great Depression. That first day in New York, he slept on a Union Square bench, where someone stole his shoes. The next morning, he set out on foot, in newly bought shoes, to walk uptown to Harlem. When he reached Central Park, he stopped because of his severely blistered feet.

Things had never been tougher for American artists — let alone black ones. Art schools didn’t take black artists, and independent-studio classes banned black artists from figure-drawing sessions with white models. Undaunted, Delaney began drawing at a midtown dance studio. Somehow, his career took off almost overnight. Four months after he arrived in New York, an article appeared in the New York Telegraph about portraits Delaney had done of dancers and society figures.

Beauford Delaney

Artist (1901–79) Currently, MoMA has

“Composition 16”

(1954–56) on view, a glowing bioluminescent yellow abstraction kitty-corner across the gallery from that other (until recently) missing modernist, Hilma af Klint. Both are in the company of de Kooning, Kline, and the other giants of mid-century painting. He met and charmed everyone. A list of his friends and acquaintances includes Stuart Davis — his closest painter compatriot — W.E.B. Du Bois (whose portrait he did), Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Jacob Lawrence, Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe (who did a portrait of him), Edward Steichen, Dorothy Norman, Anaïs Nin (who intimidated him), Jackson Pollock, and Jean Genet. His closest lifelong friend, however, was James Baldwin — who, while fleeing a strict father at 16, looked up Delaney in the Village. He later called the artist his “principal witness.” Delaney was a kind of surrogate nurturing father to the writer. Judging by his 1941 Dark Rapture (James Baldwin), a steamy nude portrait of the 16-year-old writer (as well as from subsequent Baldwin portraits over the decades), Delaney seems to have been in love with the lithe young man 22 years his junior. In October 1938, more than a decade before Pollock graced the same pages, Life magazine featured Delaney, picturing him beatifically smiling at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit. The caption read, “One of the most talented Negro painters.” Yet by the time he died in 1979, Delaney was alone, alcoholic, hallucinating, paranoid, and penniless in a Paris psychiatric hospital. What started as a great American story is now a near absence in the history of American art and an American Dream forestalled.

Spratley, Esquire, Court Appointed Administrator; Courtesy of Michael Rosenfeld Gallery LLC, New York, NY I love his work — especially his highly colored, optically intense, dense figurative paintings. He is almost an exact contemporary of, and the New York counterpart to, another great painter-portraitist, an artist who captured the power and magic of being poor stylishly, who lived on the margins but eventually came to be recognized as a visionary: Alice Neel. Delaney should be regarded as such as well. Through the 1930s and 1940s, while most American artists were either being fifth-rate Cubists, regionalists, or academics or desperately looking for ways around Picasso via Surrealism, Delaney made his own thoroughly contemporary way. In street and park scenes, still lifes, and portraits, he built upon the work of his good friend Davis, arriving at his own compact, flat fields of creamy, opaque color. His sense of visual, jigsawing geometry and strong, graphic distillation of structure is second only to Davis’s. Delaney’s work, however, has a much more human aura, atmosphere, and arc, almost to a mystical degree, seen only in Marsden Hartley. So why has Delaney been disappeared from collective memory? Partly, it is the racial bias of art history, which, among other things, meant that even while he was celebrated, it was less as a painterly equal to his contemporaries than as some kind of Negro seer or spiritual black Buddha. And in 1953, at the age of 51, Delaney left New York at perhaps the worst possible time. When other American artists, like Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham, were meeting and staying up late together (many of them open and uncloseted in their sexuality), Delaney was in Paris, where Baldwin had told him he could escape the long American night of racism. Baldwin was right, but Delaney struggled with French and became even more isolated. Twombly, Baldwin, and Miller returned often to New York, while Delaney never did. So he never got to rejoin the conversation. By the 1960s, Delaney’s abstraction was more connected to the French Art Informel — a primarily European response to Abstract Expressionism — and his paintings, influenced as they were by Monet’s Water Lilies and Turner’s glowing color, had few of the ironic, systemic, direct qualities of Pop Art and minimalism. At a distance, Delaney’s work seemed passé — an artist painting in a void, outside the canon. *This article appears in the January 6, 2020, issue of New York Magazine.

Portrait de Jean Genet, Beauford Delaney, 1972
Beauford Delaney was a painter, specializing in portraits. The Beauford Delaney collection consists of correspondence with colleagues, friends, gallery owners, and family members, as well as printed material documenting Delaney’s life in Paris.
BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL INFORMATION Beauford Delaney was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, the third child of the Reverend Samuel Delaney and Delia Johnson Delaney. He attended the Knoxville Colored School and later studied art with an elderly Knoxville artist, who encouraged him to get further training. In 1924 Delaney went to Boston where he studied at the Massachusetts Normal School and the South Boston School of Art, and attended evening classes at the Copley Society. Delaney went to New York in 1929, settling at first in Harlem. He painted society women and professional dancers at Billy Pierce’s dancing school on West 46th Street, which gained him a reputation as a portraitist. His first one-man show, which consisted of five pastels and ten charcoal drawings, was at the 135th Street Branch Library of the New York Public Library in 1930. During the same year three of his portraits were included in a group show at the Whitney Studio Galleries, the predecessor of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Delaney also taught part-time at a progressive school in Greenwich Village. By the late 1940s Beauford Delaney had become a significant figure on the art scene. He illustrated “Unsung Americans Sung” (1944), a book of black musical tributes edited by W.C. Handy; he had a series of one-man shows in New York and Washington, D.C.; and he exhibited in group shows in a number of other cities. In 1945 he showed his first series of portraits of writers Henry Miller and James Baldwin, who would become his lifelong friends. In 1949 he began an association with the Roko Gallery in New York, where he exhibited annually until 1953. In 1953 Delaney left New York with the intention of settling in Rome, but a visit to Paris turned into a permanent stay. He had two studios in Paris, the first in the suburbs of Clamart and the other in the Rue Vincingetorix. In Paris Delaney exhibited in one-man and group shows at the Gallerie Paul Fachetti (1960), the Centre Culturel Americain (1961 and 1972), the Galerie Lambert (1964), the Musee Galliera (1967) and the Galerie Darthea Speyer (1973), among other places. The latter was a major showing of a selection of his work from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s and the catalog contained tributes by James Jones, James Baldwin, and Georgia O’Keefe. Delaney also exhibited in England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United States. The Paris years saw the creation of several masterpieces including portraits of singer Marian Anderson and writer Jean Genet. During this period he also created a series of interiors and studies in watercolor. After suffering two nervous breakdowns, Delaney was institutionalized, and died on March 26, 1979 at St. Ann’s Hospital in Paris. Delaney’s last one-man show in the United States was at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1978, inaugurating that museum’s Black Masters Series. Delaney’s work is in several private collections and in the collections of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Newark Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. SCOPE AND ARRANGEMENT The Beauford Delaney collection consists of correspondence with colleagues, friends, gallery owners, and family members, as well a printed material documenting Delaney’s life in Paris. Biographical information is provided in statements Delaney authored, articles prepared by others for catalogs, and his obituary. Among the many friends, colleagues and art collectors with whom he maintained an active correspondence is James Baldwin, who wrote an introduction to a catalog for an exhibition of Delaney’s art at Paris’ Galerie Lambert in 1964. Other correspondents include artists Charles Boggs, Al Hirschfeld, John Franklin Koenig, and Ellis Wilson, authors James Jones and Henry Miller (who was also a water colorist), art historian Richard A. Long, and his friend Lynn Stone. Additional artists, painters, writers, gallery owners and musicians who corresponded with Delaney include Lawrence Calcagno, Cab Calloway, Elaine DeKooning, Palmer C. Hayden, and Darthea Speyer. The letters discuss the style of painting of the correspondents, travels, purchase and exhibition of works, and personal matters. Numerous gallery announcements for art exhibits of Delaney’s and other artists’ works in Paris, New York and other cities demonstrate the extent of Delaney’s activities in the contemporary art world. The collection also contains a large number of picture postcards, some sent by friends, and gallery announcements. Family letters are from his brother and fellow artist, Joseph Delaney, and discuss his own work and impressions of Paris; his brother Emery (includes letters Delaney wrote to his brother, in addition to those received); and Delaney’s niece, Imogene.   Beauford Delaney

California Superior and Appeals Court Fraud in Motion to Dismiss

Corruption Defined
Superior and Appeals Court Fraud in Motion to Dismiss
As for the Appeals Court, the appeals court bases it’s decision to dismiss al-Hakim’s appeal entirely on CSAA’s contention that al-Hakim had failed and refused to comply with an unserved discovery request that was unopposed and as such should have their unserved motion to dismiss granted!
Defendants obtained this order from Commissioner Rausch as the product of fraud and deceit when again defendants got an UNOPPOSED order as al-Hakim was NEVER served any interrogatories and requests for the production of documents BUT Brand granted the Motion of al-Hakim to vacate and set aside the related order on MOTION NO. 3. of 4/16/18. (Filed 9/14/18) 
Nor did defendants serve a motion to dismiss the appeal by CSAA, nor did al-Hakim receive any filing notice of any type from the Appeals Court of any motion to dismiss by CSAA. 
MOTION NO. 3. (see 2/25/19 Brand Challenge at ¶¶ 18, Page 34-35)
Even though Brand set aside the order, his ruling is willfully blind, bias, prejudice, shrouded in fraud as he attempts to ignore the existence of the Fraud, Deception, Misrepresentation and Bad Faith Conduct of Defendants. Here Brand was presented with evidence of defendants sworn statements that clearly establish their fraud of al-Hakim, Extrinsic fraud upon the court, the People of the State of California by not having served the alleged documents, yet in his order he advocated a judicial imprimatur of the defense’s theory and demands “within 21 days of service of this order, Al-Hakim must produce responses to interrogatories (set one) and requests for the production of documents (set one). The responses must be without objection and must be verified” He totally disregards the fact that al-Hakim WAS NEVER SERVED, thus CAN NOT RESPOND!!
THIS ORDER WAS TAKEN OUT OF SHEER FRAUD AND DECIT BY CSAA FILING WITHOUT SERVING THE MOTIONS ON al-HAKIM.
al-Hakim has expressed repeatedly to the courts that he was NEVER served any motion to dismiss by CSAA, nor any motion to compel discovery by CSAA, and this is clearly a well established patterned litigation practice employed by them and al-Hakim has brought this fact to the attention of the courts many, many times before as well as CSAA historically NEVER has any supporting proof of service that is legally and properly executed, is always unsigned so that they are NOT under the penalty of perjury. The orders are the unsavory product of CSAA’s unscrupulous, immoral fraud and that immorality has been drastically redefined in recent times, arguably the boundaries of what is judicially acceptable remain publicly policed!
The Court of Appeal abuse its discretion and improperly prejudice al-Hakim when it dismissed his appeal given that Justice Barbara J.R. Jones July 16, 2018 order EVADES THE ENTIRE GRAVAMEN OF al-HAKIM’S ARGUMENT, THE FACT THAT al-HAKIM WAS NEVER SERVED THE MOTION TO DISMISS BY DEFENDANTS AND NEVER RECEIVED ANY NOTICE FROM HER APPEALS COURT OF ANY SUCH ACTION AND HER APPEALS COURT HAVE NO RECORD OF EVER SENDING ANY NOTICE OF ANY TYPE TO al-HAKIM REGARDING THE MOTION TO DISMISS!
So how is it possible that the Appeals Court would be silent, not providing ANY proof of their having EVER served ANY notice of any kind of their receiving the motion to dismiss, NOTHING served on me even remotely noticing the motion, no briefing schedule, no schedule of motion practice and this clearly should have been the practice of the courts as it has before with Anne Reasoner, Vira Pons and Truefiling. al-Hakim NEVER received any email, or U. S. postal mail from Anne Reasoner, Vira Pons or the appeals court nor any electronic service from TrueFiling as he usually would. 
The matters of the courts failure and refusal to serve ANY notice of ANY type regarding as serious a matter as a dismissal of an action against the obvious corruption of a judge or judges combined with the failure and refusal of the reviewing judge smacks of blatant GRAND CORRUPTION of ALL INVOLVED, ESPECIALLY AND INCLUDING THOSE THAT COVER IT UP COMMITTING AN EVEN GREATER CRIME!!!
Alameda Superior Court and Appeals Corruption

Judge Brands ruling granting the motion to vacate and set aside the order granting defendants motion to compel interrogatories and sanctions due to NON SERVICE.
On October 12, 2018, the Appeals Court sent a reply that merely mentions that the defendants had submitted a proof of service dated June 22, 2018, that was allegedly served via mail and electronically to two different email addresses, 1) one that CSAA has admitted to the courts that has been blocked from sending email to for years due to his giving that email address to a commercial business without al-Hakim’s knowledge or approval and 2) the other email address he knows is not al-Hakim. There NEVER was any U.S. mail nor personal service of any documents.
In several documents filed with the courts, Attorney John Bradley sworn under the penalty of perjury in a November 29, 2017 letter to al-Hakim that he will neither serve nor accept service via email and has not done so!
At the November 22, 2017 hearing, Bradley could not and did not produce a valid, properly executed proof of service which is why his deputy counsel Colwell could not enforce his unserved motion for the issuance of an order to show cause re: sale of dwelling.
Secondly, al-Hakim notified Bradley by letter, fax and email on December 4, 2017, that Bradley’s email was blocked due to his giving that email address to a commercial business without al-Hakim’s knowledge or approval. This notice was given months, nearly a year before Bradley claims that it was problematic and he fails to explain how al-Hakim has problems with receiving mail at his home because Bradley alleges that “he does NOT live there and is not there everyday”. al-Hakim does NOT deliver the mail to his home and in no way would be involved nor responsible for that task!
NOW THE ENTIRE UNDERPINNINGS OF JUDGE JONES DECISION TO DISMISS al-HAKIM’S APPEAL HAVE VANISHED except the remaining Court Administration Grand, Systemic and Endemic Corruption; Conduct To Pervert or Obstruct Justice, or the Due Administration of the Laws (Pen.Code, §§ 182, subd. (a)(1), 4570) 1 and Conspiracy to Pervert or Obstruct Justice (§ 182, subd. (a)(5)); Fraud Upon The Court; Manipulation; Cause Due to Criminal Conduct In Violation of The Law!
The Appeals court, Judge Barbara Jones and the court clerks are blocking and providing interference for judge Kim Colwell to make her “end run” and complete her fraud and corruption in her Order for sale of al-Hakim’s Dwelling BEFORE the Motion to Vacate the Order, which was uncontested by defendants, was to be heard and has been continued by the court under an illegal Appeals stay since February 2018. 
al-Hakim’s Motion to Vacate the Order granting the sale of plaintiff home is NOT an appealable order and is NOT subject to the automatic stay pending appeals, just as the defendants motion for sale of the dwelling with an undertaking is NOT subject to the automatic stay, which Colwell ruled the sale of dwelling could and did go forward, yet she has continued to delay the resolution to plaintiff’s motion to vacate that was uncontested by defendants! This would reverse the ruling made by Judge Colwell for the sale of the Dwelling!!!
For eight months Colwell had been begging the Appeals court to expedite the Remitter in the motion to dismiss so she can quickly rule on the motion to vacate with a denial! 
For the Appeals Court to deny such a serious motion when the appeals court was willfully and intentionally derelict in their NON-SERVICE of ANY notices to al-Hakim and CSAA obvious fraud, there is NO place for this in modern society much less in a courtroom before the people! It is even more enlightening in respects to the calumny deceit and denial of due process employed in it, that al-Hakim have complained of for years. This order in response to al-Hakim’s actions of merely invoking his rights to petition the courts was the very epitome of specious retaliation and heinous denial of due process FORCED on al-Hakim by defendants.
On March 18, 2019, January 10 and 7, 2019 and November 7, 2018, filed and served complaints with Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye and Associate Justices of the Court, Beth Robbins, and Charles Johnson requesting an investigation of and urging both the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal to grant review of the Court of Appeal’s decision in al-HAKIM VS CSAA- Wellpoint (2018) California Appeals Court Case# 153510, and now California Supreme Court Case# S-250997. Order from the Appeals Court dated July 16, 2018
al-Hakim has received NO response from the State Supreme nor Appeals Courts and their response and the admissions of the facts, evidence, testimony, and proof from their findings of what happened in this incident has a drastic effect on this case as it will NOT “go away” merely because you chose to ignore it! We DEMAND ANSWERS TO THIS CONTINUING CRIME!
Defendants “appeal covers more than just a failure to comply with a court order. It includes obstructive tactics and frustration or obstruction of legitimate efforts to enforce a judgment.” as again al-Hakim was NEVER served any motion to dismiss by CSAA, any filing notice of any type from the Appeals Court of any motion to dismiss by CSAA, no briefing schedule, no schedule of motion practice, and this clearly should have been the practice of the courts as it has before with Anne Reasoner and Truefiling. al-Hakim NEVER received any email, or U. S. postal mail from Reasoner or the appeals court nor any electronic service from TrueFiling, which is the norm, and there is NO RECORD of any type that any of them sent any notice of any type to al-Hakim!
These matters are currently being investigated.
Oakland City Attorney Gives Case File To Defendants Stephan Barber and Law Firm Ropers Majeski, Doesn’t Tell Court or Plaintiffs!

Non-Service of Process Tactic
This tactic employed by the courts and defendants of failing to serve documents on al-Hakim is a major part of the litigation scheme carried out solely for the purpose of espousing defendants vitriol of Trump-esq hate induced 20 year strategy of FRAUD, DECIET, RACISM, RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY, AND INTOLERANCE, PREJUDICE, stirring the animus of the court to provoke acrimony toward al-Hakim, fostering calumny deceit within the judicial and legal community, knowingly using fraudulent, misleading, false and larcenous documentation provided by Defendants attempting to foist upon plaintiff and the courts the imprimatur of substantiating documentary evidence in denial of al-Hakim’s civil rights and immunity from takings of property without due process is a gross abuse of discretion in violation of the law is objectively unreasonable and was undertaken intentionally with malice, willfulness, and reckless indifference to the rights of al-Hakim in lieu of proper litigation.
Brand’s order has merely substantiated the evidence of the continuing Superior Court Administration Grand, Systemic and Endemic Corruption; Conduct To Pervert or Obstruct Justice, or the Due Administration of the Laws (Pen.Code, §§ 182, subd. (a)(1), 4570) 1 and Conspiracy to Pervert or Obstruct Justice (§ 182, subd. (a)(5)); Fraud Upon The Court; and Manipulation.
These efforts of CSAA is tantamount to a scheme to hinder, deny and defraud al-Hakim in violation of the laws above and can qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh and Ralph Civil Rights and the Bane Acts, while they are clear acts of religious bigotry and intolerance for which al-Hakim will not allow.

The “COURTEL” Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats

The “COURTEL” Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats

MEDIA ADVISORY

Due to the Grand Systemic and Endemic Corruption, that includes Judicial/Legal Systemic Racism as a subset, that provides for the unlawful, and unconstitutional acts of The “COURTEL”COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL, the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats, the al-Hakim Family has suffered the unfathomable loss of their homes, their businesses, their incomes, their life’s assets, their credit worthiness, their friends and associates! 
Those Judicial/Legal, Government and Law Enforcement Bodies, Agencies and Political Officials identified in the COURTEL, are listed in the “THE COURTEL,THE COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL” Page on this website at: https://wp.me/Pye39-qE; and those identified as Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats are listed BELOW! Those identified as “THE COURTEL”, include ALL those referenced in both The “COURTEL”COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL, plus the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats collectively in total!
ABDUL-JALIL al-HAKIM, his family members Harun al-Hakim-Miller, Jalil Omar al-Hakim, Bari al-Hakim-Williams, Joette al-Hakim-Hall, Patty Flenory, and their siblings; and their business entities Superstar Management, The Genius of Randy Wallace, Inc., the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF), Nowtruth.org, eX-whY Adventures, and communities that they serve, have suffered through over 50 years of continuing great and irreparable harm, which continues to this date.
The COURTEL disabled, stole and sold their home, businesses, retirement funds, cars, trucks, assets, revoked al-Hakim’s drivers license and passport: forcing the loss of income from oversea’s employment, touring and booking dates; business and pleasure travel; prohibited from serving in Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF) relief missions in Haiti and Africa willfully and intentionally deprived al-Hakim, his family and business of their civil rights, religious rights, right to fair competition and right to due process under the law and insurance contract; the benefits under the contract; the peace of mind and economic security purchased under the contract; the prospects of full and healthy lives for the past forty years and in the untold future; the normal course of their lives and the pursuit of happiness which will never be recovered; al-Hakim, his family and business has been harmed BEYOND COMPREHENSION!
The COURTEL and District Attorney admitted stealing child support paid to them in trust for al-Hakim’s daughter and extorted al-Hakim to pay it again; al-Hakim’s appeal of the District Attorney’s fraud and extortion was handled by then Attorney General Jerry Brown and later Kamala Harris whom substituted in as attorneys in the interest of justice, yet they was supposed to be investigating these same parties crimes as part of the U. S. Attorney General’s action al-Hakim filed in 2005; they suspended al-Hakim’s drivers license since 2004 for the DA’s admitted fraud in an effort to extort him into paying for their fraud; at the same time revoked al-Hakim’s passport denying his ability to travel or gain employment internationally for the DA’s admitted fraud in an effort to extort him into paying for their fraud; the California State Franchise Tax Board illegally raided two al-Hakim’s retirement money market and business accounts with fraudulent, fictitious double billed bank levies on both business and personal bank accounts; the COURTEL (DA’s office, Hayward Police Department, California Bureau of Automotive Repair) have dismantled an auto leaving it in parts; they have impounded and sold another SUV truck used in their family non-profit foundation; Bankruptcy judge Randall Newsome fabricated the audio and written record of a hearing and three times demanded al-Hakim work with Trustee and attorneys to continue performing management duties for M. C. Hammer and when al-Hakim refused to work free, the judge made a “take it or leave it” offer compromising al-Hakim’s $1.7 million claim, resulting in al-Hakim getting $0; another Federal Bankruptcy Trustee stole $10,000 from al-Hakim in a Bankruptcy case involving court ordered restitution to be paid to al-Hakim from the police burglary of al-Hakim’s computer store; among others! 
This is criminal fraud upon the court and law, extrinsic fraud — fraud on the al-Hakim, which prevented him from having his days in court and has deprived him and his family of the celebration of their daily lives with the pursuit of happiness, ruined their health, destroyed their businesses, their savings of their lifetimes, All this in retaliation for exercising federal protections against the onslaught of record setting violations of federally protected rights, and in retaliation for reporting criminal activities in which The COURTEL, Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats with their conspiring offending parties were implicated.
Appeals and Superior Court Corruption

This COURTEL, Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats have deprived al-Hakim and his family of the celebration of their daily lives with the pursuit of happiness, ruined their health, destroyed their businesses, the savings of a lifetime, with their fraud upon the court inflicting maximum emotion distress, pain and suffering, forbidding and denying the basic and elementary pursuit of happiness, casting them into an uncontrollable downward spiraling infinite moribund density, schism, chasm, of life threatening and life altering danger and crippling poverty without end until death!

The COURTEL’S insidious and fatal legal intrusion into the al-Hakim’s lives has maimed and dismember the al-Hakim family; shattered their hopes, dreams, aspirations; murdered their lives through oppression and persecution; causing, forcing their death from this slaughter and torture, as they destroy al-Hakim’s iconic, role model status, ruined his public persona and business reputation, and sullied his professional integrity by casting aspersions upon him with GREAT pain and suffering!
The COURTEL’S illegal eviction of al-Hakim from the defaulted Green Key case, forced him, his family and businesses out of his home with only two days to move and was unable to take anything! ALL al-Hakim’s entire 70 years life long obtained belongings, every invaluable item he has ever acquired, including everything of his family’s personal property and his businesses property documented over $600,000, ALL his belongings from 40 years of residing in the home and was forced to leave EVERYTHING, a completely furnished, 5 bedroom, 19 room, 3,800 sq ft home, including his business and personal property, includes ALL personal and business effects, computers and electronics, jewelry, artwork, audio and video recorder equipment and tapes, chandeliers, silver and china ware, household items, furniture and fixtures, valuables, clothing, gym and exercise equipment, spa and swimming pool goods, bedroom goods, kitchen ware, ALL food and nutrition goods, supplies, gardening and pool supplies, tools, accessories and supplies. 
JudicialTyranny
Additionally, there was over $100,000 in clothing, clothing accessories, sporting goods and equipment, clothing racks, displays, manikins, athletic wear, gear, accessories, inventory of the family 62 year old non-profit, the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, alone! These are among other things that were in the home on the premises. 
Of note is the fact al-Hakim was forced to leave all his personal and business files that are now in the custody and control of the COURTEL’S. al-Hakim has NONE of the files he had accumulated over his life of years!
The COURTEL’S has total possession and control of ALL al-Hakim’s possessions, Four times al-Hakim has demanded the return of EVERYTHING, ALL ITEMS LEFT IN THE HOUSE, WITHOUT ANY DAMAGE TO THEM! COURTEL and defendants has NEVER responded to the demand and we are sure the items of interest are in the complete control of the COURTEL, Corruptocrats, and Kleptocrats!
The COURTEL’S tactics is designed to instill fear into al-Hakim and his family, to capture them in the snare of the legal system- civil and criminal, with prosecuting judges, police and district attorney in ALL their cases…… without justice, stealing their lives, businesses, human and civil rights, property, pursuit of happiness and freedom are ALL in jeopardy of peril. Justice is what they want you to buy into and adhere to while they use it as a smoke screen to deny you that same justice they NEVER intended for you!
Kamala Harris, whom substituted in as attorneys in the interest of justice, was acting or purporting to act in the performance of their official duties, FILED DOCUMENTS THAT THEY WERE REPRESENTING the al-Hakim Family members Harun al-Hakim-Miller, Bari al-Hakim-Williams, Joette al-Hakim-Hall, Patty Flenory; the VERY SAME PARTIES THEY ADMITTED TO HAVE STOLEN, MISAPPROPRIATED, AND DEFRAUDED THE CHILD SUPPORT PAID TO THEM IN TRUST FOR THE MINOR GIRLS AND THEN EXTORTED THE FATHER TO PAY IT AGAIN; wherein this conduct violated the girls’s civil rights, religious rights, right to fair competition and right to due process under the law and is an inherent threat to all our civil and human rights, right to due process, property, pursuit of happiness and freedom; yet Kamala Harris and the Attorney General’s Office was supposed to be investigating these same parties crimes as part of the U. S. Attorney General’s action al-Hakim filed in 2005! THERE IS NO GREATER CONFLICT OF INTEREST THEN THIS OBVIOUS AND ADMITTED DEFRAUDING OF TWO MINOR GIRLS CHILD SUPPORT PERPETRATED BY KAMALA HARRIS IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE IN THE HISTORY IF JUSTICE!!
The COURTEL, Corruptocrats, and Kleptocrats, these corrupt judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities are more dangerous to our liberty, than any of the enemy it claims to protect us from. Why have these people and organizations been so derelict while failing and refusing so miserably to enforce the same rules of conduct and law on incompetent, mendacious judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities after so many complaints filed? They have allowed these same judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities to act as if in a trance… trying to destroy al-Hakim and demonized al-Hakim to prosecute, persecute and disparaged al-Hakim whom was guilty only of advocating and standing up for his civil and human rights and right to due process. These same judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities are allowed to use court orders to threaten to fine, jail and pauperize al-Hakim. 
Did the COURTEL, Corruptocrats, and Kleptocrats, these same judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities honestly and fairly serve al-Hakim and this generation of Americans by failing and refusing to prosecute these serious charges, and did they do what it takes to defeat the inherent threat to all our civil and human rights, right to due process, property, pursuit of happiness and freedom? Sadly — of course — the distance of history will recognize that the threat to all our civil and human rights, right to due process, property, pursuit of happiness and freedom that al-Hakim and this generation of Americans needed to take seriously… was The “COURTEL”COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL, with their Corruptocrats, and Kleptocrats, the same judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities that they are suppose to Protect and Defend US FROM!

FROM EMMETT TILL TO BREONNA TAYLOR: AMERICA CONTINUES TO SANCTION THE MURDERING OF BLACKS

FROM EMMETT TILL TO BREONNA TAYLOR: AMERICA CONTINUES TO SANCTION THE MURDERING OF BLACKS

MEDIA ADVISORY

“We want Justice for Breonna yet justice was met for her neighbors apartment walls and not her beautiful life.” – Lebron James, NBA star
On the 65th anniversary of the acquittal of the men who murdered 14-year-old Emmett “Bobo” Till, Black America suffered another punch to the gut by a justice system that too seldom provides anything approximating justice when the victim is Black. The officers who killed Breonna Taylor will not be held accountable.
In August of 1955, Till was murdered by a group of men after being falsely accused of flirting with a White woman in Money, Mississippi. As was the custom for many Black children in the north, they would be sent “down south” to spend the summer with relatives. Till never made it back home to Chicago. I was born 37 miles away in the same county, Tallahatchie, that he was kidnapped from and murdered.
The two men tried for his murder, J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant, were found not guilty in the county courthouse of Sumner, Mississippi on September 23, 1955. It had not even been a full month since they murdered Till. The all-white, all-male jury deliberated for 67 minutes before issuing a not guilty verdict. One juror infamously said:
“We wouldn’t have taken so long if we hadn’t stopped to drink pop.”
Fast forward to September 23, 2020 and we are told that no one will be held accountable for killing 26-year-old Breonna Taylor. The officers who shot her were not found to be criminally culpable by a grand jury. One officer, who was fired months ago was charged with a crime that most Americans could not define if they tried to. Former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree for shooting into a neighboring apartment. What the heck is wanton endangerment? And just as importantly why is he facing five years in prison for shooting a wall but the officers who killed Taylor will not be charged with killing her?
Kentucky law describes wanton endangerment as happening:
“when, under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life, [a person] wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person.”
Allow this to sink in for a moment. Because this officer could have potentially caused bodily harm to someone in a neighboring apartment, he was the sole officer indicted from the night when Taylor was killed by police wearing civilian clothes using what was reported to be a no-knock warrant in the middle of the night. If this officer had actually shot straight, like his peers who killed Taylor, he would not have lost his job and would not be facing charges right now.
As we should have suspected, protests exploded in Louisville and around the country. I am numb. I have run out of words to describe my frustrations with America. I wonder why I stay in this country. I have been warning people for years that there is something fundamentally flawed with the way we police in this country.
It is more than the police though. It is also the district attorneys, and grand jurors around the country who refuse to hold police officers accountable for killing unarmed civilians. It is the state and federal elected officials, who have passed laws that make it nearly impossible to hold police officers accountable. It is the fault of judges who have interpreted the laws in a way that gives the cops a license to kill in almost every circumstance possible. It is the uncaring way in which so many Whites in this country show indifference when these things continue to happen over and over again.
The system is the problem not the people in the system. The system works the same in 2020 as it did in 1955 even though the people are not the same. he system is called racism. It allowed the murderers of Emmett Till to walk free and be paid for giving an interview with Look magazine where they detailed what they did to Emmett Till. On January 24, 1956 the magazine ran a cover story entitled “The Shocking Story of Approved Killing in Mississippi.” Both killers were paid $1,500 a piece and their attorney was paid $1,000. The most ironic thing about the magazine cover was that it featured two smiling blonde women who looked as if they did not have a care in this world.
Milam said during the interview that as they were kidnapping Till he pointed a flashlight in his face at his uncle’s home.
Milam: “You the nigger who did the talking?”
Bobo: “Yeah.”
Milam: “Don’t say, yeah to me. I’ll blow your head off. Get your clothes on.”
They stole a cotton gin fan weighing over 70 pounds so that they could weigh down Till’s corpse in the Tallahatchie River. This account comes from the interview:
They stood silently … just hating one another.
Milam: “Take off your clothes.”
Slowly, Bobo pulled off his shoes, his socks. He stood up, unbuttoned his shirt, dropped his pants, his shorts. He stood there naked. It was Sunday morning, a little before 7.
Milam: “You still as good as I am?”
Bobo: “Yeah.”
Milam: “You still ‘had’ white women?”
Bobo: “Yeah.”
That big .45 jumped in Big Milam’s hand. The youth turned to catch that big, expanding bullet at his right ear. He dropped.
This courageous 14-year-old kid had the audacity to speak to the White people in a way that was not allowed in Mississippi at that time. He was murdered and the murderers realizing they were protected by double jeopardy laws and a solidly White pool of jurors knew that nothing would happen to them. This is how Milam defended himself and described the murder in Look magazine.
“I never hurt a nigger in my life. I like niggers – in their place … But I just decided it was time a few people got put on notice. As long as I live and can do anything about it, niggers are gonna stay in their place. Niggers ain’t gonna vote where I live. If they did, they’d control the government. They ain’t gonna go to school with my kids. And when a nigger gets close to mentioning sex with a white woman, he’s tired o’ livin’. I’m likely to kill him. Me and my folks fought for this country, and we got some rights. I stood there in that shed and listened to that nigger throw that poison at me, and I just made up my mind. ‘Chicago boy,’ I said, ‘I’m tired of ’em sending your kind down here to stir up trouble. Goddam you, I’m going to make an example of you – just so everybody can know how me and my folks stand.’ So Big Milam decided to act. He needed a weight…Bobo wasn’t bleeding much. Pistol-whipping bruises more than it cuts. They ordered him back in the truck and headed west again … Bryant and Big Milam stood aside while Bobo loaded the fan. Weight: 74 pounds … Big Milam ordered Bobo to pick up the fan.He staggered under its weight … carried it to the river bank.
Till’s mother, Mamie Till, demanded that her son have an open casket funeral so that the world could see what they did to Bobo. According to PBS, “Emmett Till’s mutilated body would be on display for all to see. Fifty thousand people in Chicago saw Emmett Till’s corpse with their own eyes. When the magazine Jet ran photos of the body, Black Americans across the country shuddered.” The murder of Till was a catalyst for the community of Montgomery, Alabama standing up to segregation and boycotting the buses just a few months later.
The killing of Till, and the acquittal just weeks later was a heavy blow to the hearts and minds of the 15 million Black people in this country. Today, 44 million Black people were kicked in the stomach by this decision in Kentucky. Protests are occurring once again just as they were when George Floyd was killed by police in May. We have endured so many of these murders without receiving justice that it feels like we are in a never-ending, repeating cycle of doom. Justice does not allow itself to be a part of the lived experience of Blacks when they are killed by police and in many cases vigilantes.
We have done all of the things possible to tell America how we feel. America has not changed much since that hot summer day in Mississippi when two murderers walked away free men. The officers who killed Taylor will not be held accountable. Nothing will change this reality. Civil charges will not be filed. There may be talk of it happening but I would not bet on it occurring.
What can we do now? What have we not done already? Has it mattered that George Floyd’s death led to worldwide protests but here we are again just months later? How can we be comforted? How can we be expected to do anything other than express our emotions? Many won’t like the way some express their frustration over the coming days and weeks. We will hear the useless calls for more police training. We will hear people say they stand by us but don’t appreciate or support how we protest.
Unfortunately for Blacks in this country the more things change the more they stay the same. There are no words to describe the current feelings I have. I am not surprised by the decision to not charge the officers who killed Breonna Taylor. The mindset of those people in Mississippi back in the 1950s is the mindset of far too many people around the country today. We must be honest and call America out for allowing this systemic racism to perpetuate itself.
Bob Dylan’s song The Death of Emmett Till could easily be re-written on behalf of the memory of Breonna Taylor.
“And so this trial was a mockery, but nobody seemed to mind.
I saw the morning papers but I could not bear to see
The smiling brothers walkin’ down the courthouse stairs.
For the jury found them innocent and the brothers they went free,
While Emmett’s body floats the foam of a Jim Crow southern sea.
If you can’t speak out against this kind of thing, a crime that’s so unjust,
Your eyes are filled with dead men’s dirt, your mind is filled with dust.
Your arms and legs they must be in shackles and chains, and your blood it must refuse to flow,
For you let this human race fall down so God-awful low!

Death of Ginsburg could boost Trump,we have his Replacement Candidates

Death of Ginsburg could boost Trump,we have his Replacement Candidates

Democrats fear Donald Trump will defy the legal icon’s final wish and attempt to push through a candidate to the Supreme Court – diverting attention from his handling of the coronavirus crisis
Crowds have gathered to pay tributes to iconic Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death at the age of 87.
Emotional tributes have been paid to the women’s rights champion, amid fears Donald Trump could defy her dying wish.
Ginsburg had pleaded for her successor to be appointed once there is a new President – but Trump seems likely to pounce on the chance to divert attention from his handling of the coronavirus.
If he gets his way and a conservative takes Ginsburg’s place, laws permitting abortion in the US could be under threat.
Flowers were left outside the Supreme Court building in Washington DC as mourners paid their respects.
Ginsburg was a renowned liberal who famously branded Trump a “faker” and said he was guided by his ego.
The judge, a co-founder of the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), was just the second woman ever appointed to the Supreme Court, the highest court in the US.
She was popularly known by her initials RBG, and emerged as an icon in popular culture in recent years.
An image of Ginsburg and the alternating messages “thank you” and “rest in power” were projected on the front of the New York State Civil Supreme Court building in Manhattan as Americans paid tribute.
The race to appoint a successor
Ginsburg had requested that her replacement on the Supreme Court was not appointed until there is a new President.
Just days before her death, she dictated a statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera, saying: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies – and she didn’t want to be replaced until Trump out of office
But with Trump on the back foot and Republicans anxious about losing the White House and the US Senate, experts believe putting forward a candidate could divert criticism away from the incumbent.
If successful, it would also move the Supreme Court further to the right, giving it a 6-3 conservative majority.
The balance is currently 5-4 in favour of conservatives.
Trump has already appointed two conservatives to lifetime posts on the court, Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
Why this could impact on abortion rights in the US
Conservative activists for years have sought to get enough
votes on the Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump promised to appoint justices who would overturn that landmark decision. 
If Trump is able to appoint a judge who opposes abortion, he may be able to deliver on this pledge.
Timing could suit Donald Trump’s campaign, says strategist
For months, the election contest has centred on Trump’s handling of the pandemic, which has badly damaged his prospects for reelection as the US death toll nears 200,000.
However, Ginsburg’s death opens up the potential for Trump or Biden to choose a successor – who could rule on issues including abortion access, environmental regulations and the power of the presidency for a generation.
Strategists on both sides have seized on the moment to find an advantage.
Trump’s supporters see an opportunity to galvanize support beyond his most loyal core of backers, with Republican strategist Alex Conant saying: “It’s hard to see how this doesn’t help Trump politically.
“Biden wants this election to be a referendum on Trump. Now it’s going to be a referendum on whoever he nominates to the supreme court.”
Multiple Republicans close to the White House believe Mr Trump will likely nominate a woman.
“Any week Donald Trump doesn’t have to talk about coronavirus is a net positive for him,” said Joel Payne, a Democratic strategist who worked for 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Historically, Republicans vote on the court. I think some Republicans will see this as the October surprise to gin up excitement in their base.”
Tributes paid to liberal icon
Figures from across the political spectrum have paid tribute to Ginsburg
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat, posted on Twitter : “Tonight, the flags are flying at half staff over the Capitol to honor the patriotism of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“Every woman and girl, and therefore every family, in America has benefitted from her brilliance.”
“Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a statement.
“We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her – a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”
“Today, our nation mourns the loss of a titan of the law,” Trump said in a statement, adding that Ginsburg’s decisions “have inspired all Americans, and generations of great legal minds.”
Trump, who as a presidential candidate in 2016 called on Ginsburg to resign and said “her mind is shot” after she criticized him in media interviews, did not mention any potential plans about nominating a replacement.

THE COURTEL, THE COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL

The COURTEL, Court Corruption Cartel

THE “COURTEL”, THE COURT CORRUPTION CARTEL, this Black Robed Society was Conceived in Sin, Born of Corruption, Covered Up with Collusion, protected by Diabolical Guard Dogs of Hell itself- the COURTEL! A Litany of Law Lords, Demonically Dealing Decisions for Dominance, DOLLAR$!
These Kingpins of Corporate Crime, Fraud, Corruption, Collusion, Conspiracy, are continuing the Jim Crow administration of justice, with Transactional Justice that’s really Contracted Injustice, legal rulings to favor their Corruptocrats and Kleptocrat carpet bagging political handlers, slaves to lobbyist and their colleagues Transactional Justice for CA$H to insure Justice Fails and Refuses to Bring Justice! 
The dramatic long standing effects of the “COURTEL” is characterized by tyrannical Federal, State, and Local Governments; Corrupt Federal, State, and Local Government Judicial and Law Enforcement Agencies; Rampant Fraud and Corruption; Class, Race and Caste Societal Wars; Dehumanization of the Minority and Poor Masses; Financial Collapse; Famine, Disease; Food Insecurity; Affordable Housing Drought; Sky Rocketing Unemployment; Social Unrest; Environmental Disaster; other characteristics representative of a Cataclysmic Decline in Society as the Rich Top 2% Just Get Richer at everyone else’s expense!!
This Judicial Cult of Immoral Dishonor, this “COURTEL”, with no accountability grievously disintegrates in “a monumentally moral descent into the very exclusive part of HELL for Criminal Justices who swear others to GOD but themselves are sworn to Judicial Purgatory as Satan’s Slaves!”
They want the WORLD to believe they are GOD’S vicegerents on earth and pledge allegiance to THEM- then GOD, to honor their dishonor, to gracefully ignore their disgrace, to hold them in reverence ABOVE GOD while they do the Devils work!!
Even in their own dysfunctional Dystopia it is religiously inconceivable, absurd to believe that a HUMAN BEING serving in the capacity of a Judge, can BE a Judge and have irreducible beliefs, to BELIEVE IN GOD- A HIGHER POWER, a religious concept/belief/practice in THE HEREAFTER- HEAVEN AND HELL, GOOD AND EVIL, RIGHT AND WRONG, REWARD AND PUNISHMENT, TRUTH AND JUSTICE! SIMPLY NOT POSSIBLE, UNLESS THEY ARE ALREADY RESIGNED TO THEIR GOING TO HELL FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND RULINGS!! These scurrilous, nefarious, Devils Disciples, bathing in their Judicial Ejaculation from the graft of Political Porn of Judicial Ejaculation, Motion Masturbation, can’t believe in GOD and engineer, orchestrate, author, originate and enact such cruel corruption.
California Appeals and Superior Court Corruption

The COURTEL system protects and serves the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats, these Kingpins of Korruption, the corrupt judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and police officers that hide behind their pledge/oath to their codes of the Black Robe Society and Cops “Blue Code” of Corruption and Silence, that hide behind gavels and badges! But in this Den of Degenerates, Judges are Politicians, appointed and/or elected officials that also received campaign contributions and endorsements wherein this make it difficult, impossible, for these Judges as politicians, elected/appointed officials to try and rule in any cases, to prosecute crime, thus to engage in any cases against their colleagues or manipulators.
The COURTEL’S Criminal Justices and their cohorts, these Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats,epidemiological spread of Grand Systemic and Endemic corruption that has Systemic Racism as a subset, controls the Police, District Attorneys/Prosecutors, Public Defenders and covers up for them! This Grand and Endemic Judicial/Legal Systemic Racism portrays perhaps the single most important reason why this “COURTEL” has been able to THRIVE, why the Federal, State, County and Local Governments Judicial and Law Enforcement Agencies, the Judicial Councils, the Commissions on Judicial Performance, and the heads of the Judicial Disciplinary bodies responsible for taking corrective action in these matters, has been so derelict in doing so, is because they are ALL PARTNERS, inextricably placed in the legal paradox where every Government Judicial and Law Enforcement Agency, Judge, Court Administrator, attorney, law firm, litigant and their agents having been involved in committing these crimes, opens the way to legally setting aside every case they were ever involved with and potentially being reversed at an untold cost of money, integrity and irreparable loss of public confidence in the legal system!
Vice President Kamala “Kriminal Harass” Harris and the COURTEL is commodifying, merchandising, commercializing, politicizing and exploiting the current Black Lives Matter and Social Justice dissent movements, pandering to Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats engaged in transactional justice: “pay-to-play” for rulings, orders, and decisions, in connivance with judicial, political, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities, and their assorted group of “bag men”, lobbyist, agents, upper class donors, political handlers, strategist, influence peddlers, well-connected law firms, special interest groups, corporate controllers, judicial and legal systems corruption incubators such as the Inn of Courts and noted Law Firms Keker Van Nest, Myers Nave, Ropers Majeski, acting as Judge mills transactionally buying and selling judicial appointments and decisions, as political “King Makers” to maintain and regulate legislative power, control and authority over laws and enforcement thereof!; while she also faced scrutiny among progressives – pledging to avoid big-money donors and special interests in their fundraising; as minorities criticized her for not taking a tougher stance on racism in the legal system and police brutality: furthering policies that disproportionately harm Black and Latino defendants!
Vice President Kamala “Kriminal Harass” Harris, integral in the pervasive, Corruption perpetrated by the “COURTEL”, the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats, as then Attorney General of California, substituted in as attorney of record in al-Hakim Family’s case of ADMITTED stolen Child Support by and against the Alameda County Department of Child Support Services “in the interest of justice”. 
Kamala Harris, whom substituted in as attorneys in the interest of justice, was acting or purporting to act in the performance of their official duties, FILED DOCUMENTS THAT THEY WERE REPRESENTING the al-Hakim Family members Harun al-Hakim-Miller, Bari al-Hakim-Williams, Joette al-Hakim-Hall, Patty Flenory; the VERY SAME PARTIES THEY ADMITTED TO HAVE STOLEN, MISAPPROPRIATED, AND DEFRAUDED THE CHILD SUPPORT PAID TO THEM IN TRUST FOR THE MINOR GIRLS AND THEN EXTORTED THE FATHER TO PAY IT AGAIN; wherein this conduct violated the girls’s civil rights, religious rights, right to fair competition and right to due process under the law and is an inherent threat to all our civil and human rights, right to due process, property, pursuit of happiness and freedom; yet Kamala Harris and the Attorney General’s Office was supposed to be investigating these same parties crimes as part of the U. S. Attorney General’s action al-Hakim filed in 2005! 
THERE IS NO GREATER CONFLICT OF INTEREST THEN THIS OBVIOUS AND ADMITTED DEFRAUDING OF TWO MINOR GIRLS CHILD SUPPORT PERPETRATED BY KAMALA HARRIS IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE IN THE HISTORY IF JUSTICE!!
SHE THEN DOUBLED DOWN AND SUPPRESSED THE EVIDENCE, DESTROYED AND REFUSE TO PROVIDE NECESSARY TESTIMONY AND TRANSCRIPTS, COVERED UP THE ADMITTED CRIMES- THEN FAILED AND REFUSED TO CARRY OUT THE INVESTIGATION SHE WAS ORDERED TO UNDERTAKE BY THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL- DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, OF THESE VERY SAME PARTIES SHE CLAIMED TO REPRESENT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CRIMES AND CASE: THE VICTIMS AND PERPETRATORS!!!  
What justice is there in the Attorney General defending, concealing and being complicit in committing the ALREADY ADMITTED willful and intentional extrinsic fraud upon the court; prosecutorial misconduct; willful and malicious prosecution; misconduct; conflict of interest; obstruction of justice; denial of due process; willful and intentional fabrication and authoring false evidence; misstating and mischaracterizing evidence; misrepresentation and concealment of material facts with knowledge of the truth with the intent to induce the court’s act or reliance; harassment; and intimidation on behalf of District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, former DA John “Jack” Meehan, Tom Orloff,Tom Orloff, Rock Harmon, Maureen Lenahan and others in the DA’s office; various Judges and Commissioners abuse of discretion, willful misconduct, conduct prejudicial, illegal ex-parte communications and bias that resulted in error?!!
How can the District Attorney ADMIT in a letter to the Family apologizing for committing fraud, embezzlement, fabricating and authoring false evidence, and obstruction of justice of two minors girls child support and nefariously prosecute their Father for it?”. How can Kriminal Harass, ALL the State and Federal law enforcement agencies be on notice of this crime and prosecution, have received formal complaints of the crime and prosecution, be directed to investigate and prosecute this fraud and prosecution and Kriminal Harass do NOTHING but suppress the evidence and cover up this crime and ignore the prosecution?
It is due to her being DEEPLY entrenched and interwoven into the Judicial Corruption fabric of the “COURTELS” Grand Systemic and Endemic Corruption that has Systemic Racism as a subset, that controls the Police and District Attorney/Prosecutors and covers up for them! So Black Lives Matter, if you are going to fight the good fight, you need to know and educate yourselves on the Grand Systemic and Endemic Corruption Judicial/Legal Systemic Racism that Kriminala Harrass is SOOO much a part of!
There’s NO Police reform, no social justice reform, no change in systemic racism, no defund the police, no societal change/advancement unless and until there is complete Judicial Reform revoking immunity for Judges, Police and Prosecutors to END Grand systemic and endemic corruption! We don’t need to wait until after serving 30 years in prison only to be freed for a crime we didn’t commit because of DNA tests revealed the truth that the system victimized us!
  The REAL SYSTEM, it’s the “COURTEL”, the Court Cartel and the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrats!
Unless and until there is complete Judicial Reform revoking immunity for Judges, Police and Prosecutors to END Grand systemic and endemic corruption, YOUR LIVES DON’T MATTER! 
Biden, Harris, the Corruptocrats and Kleptocrat politicians from your districts and state WILL NOT move to change that fact, their job is to PROTECT it! If you don’t believe it, CHALLENGE them to make a meaning change verbally, in committee, by petition, and election!
They have invoked an extremely “chaotic and dangerous” contagion of human and civil rights abuses across thousands of cases and incidents that have irreparably harmed and damaged these litigants essentially “murdering” them, executing their families, their businesses and their communities, robbing them of their lives!
For over 50 years al-Hakim has been presenting information about the COURTEL, which did not make any of them happy—so there is a full-scale attack, on him for doing something that the COURTEL is opposed.
The COURTEL engaged in the one-sided, presenting of the government’s narrative, a complete and total mischaracterization of al-Hakim, his family, their businesses, their community and those they serve, the victims, criminalizing them simply because they could, unopposed as an effective defense tactic, which had nothing to do with our cases as victims and then forced to survive the COURTEL’s persecution/execution that we have been experiencing as part of the governments campaign of calumny deceit of 50 years!
The COURTEL enacted a criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of al-Hakim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play Federal, Sate, County and Local Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions are just one example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim, even by death, as their adversary when al-Hakim has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!
al-Hakim has expressed his fear for his and his family’s safety after an attempt at being to set up for murder by District Attorney Officer Bob Connor in 1989, and then again being verbally accosted; physically threatened; attempted to be baited, provoked and intimidated into a physical altercation; threatened with arrest, disallowed from going to Judge Leo Dorado’s courtroom; forcibly removed and escorted from the courthouse building; and ordered not to return by Officer Bob Connor again on November 22, 2010.
The al-Hakim Family, as the victim, had to go toe to toe with this oppressive government trying to coerce and put us away! As law-abiding citizens who did nothing wrong in our cases, we were forced to endure tragic circumstances and outcomes. And we fought, the al-Hakim family, against all odds, just to be happy that we can one day walk out of a courtroom with our heads held high!
The COURTEL Judges in al-Hakim’s cases heinous, egregious actions has taken the spirit of the law for which it was written and applies and totally misused the principles it was founded upon, has written, signed and submitted willfully perjurious, deceptive and fraudulent orders in attempting to deceive the public in support of his rulings; responded to his disqualification by his failure and refusal to timely filing an answer; some doing so days later only after al-Hakim had requested the written answer multiple times; filing an answers days later only after al-Hakim contested their continued sitting in the case and indicated his intent to file an appeal for same; stating al-Hakim “attacks judges” in their answer without any explanation; calling al-Hakim a liar in their answers without any substance; publicly criticizing al-Hakim in court on the record; repeatedly lied under oath; made knowingly false statements in an effort to demean, humiliate and provoke plaintiff while lying under oath and perjury; dishonesty; fraudulent deception; calumny deceit; willful and prejudicial misconduct; abuse of discretion; negligence; bias; prejudice; willful and intentional extrinsic fraud upon the court; prosecutorial misconduct; willful and malicious prosecution; misconduct; conflict of interest; obstruction of justice; denial of due process; willful and intentional fabrication and authoring false evidence; misstating and mischaracterizing evidence; misrepresentation and concealment of material facts with knowledge of the truth with the intent to induce the court’s act or reliance; harassment; intimidation; misrepresentation; incompetence; conflict of interest; bad faith; collusion; denial of due process; obstruction of justice; racism; bigotry; has exhibited, expressed and shown a fixed opinion of al-Hakim; displayed favoritism towards the opposing parties; made false accusations; harassed al-Hakim; has willfully, deceitfully and recklessly indulged in a series of offensive acts and statements against plaintiff and has displayed disdain, malice, and a mental attitude or disposition toward al-Hakim that prohibits the right to a fair hearing or trial; failed and refused to respond to the allegations contained in the challenges for cause; conduct prejudicial; and advocated a judicial imprimatur of the opposing parties position are grounds for disqualification and DEMAND FOR REMOVAL OF THE HONORABLE JUDGES FOR PEREMPTORY BIAS CHALLENGE and FOR CAUSE PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA Code Civ.

Respectfully,

Abdul-Jalil

Kamala Harris, Government Stole Server, “scrubbed” internet, shut down al-Hakim’s Social Media to Silence Voice Exposing Criminal Activity!

MEDIA ADVISORY
The nearly Five decades old continuing story of the conflict between Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim and his Family with the Alameda County District Attorney (DA), the California Attorney General (AG) and the Alameda County Department of Child Support Service (DCSS) must be among the most extensively told in the history of the American judiciary.
al-Hakim had to file an action against Tom Orloff, the DA and ACDCSS because they failed and refused to enforce the courts own orders for the fair and proper application and accounting of payments al-Hakim made in trust to the DA in their fiduciary capacity for the two minor al-Hakim girls depriving al-Hakim and one minor child of over $2,000 of monies paid, then illegally charging al-Hakim with the crime of violating the child support statute for nonpayment. Full Story with Videos and Documents at http://tinyurl.com/ljk8av
Vice President, former Attorney General Kamala “Kriminal Harass” Harris and the Office of The Attorney General of The State of California substituted in as attorney of record in this case for the Alameda County Department of Child Support Services allegedly “in the interest of justice”. What justice is there in the Attorney General defending, concealing and thereby being further complicit in committing the admitted willful and intentional extrinsic fraud upon the court; prosecutorial misconduct; willful and malicious prosecution; misconduct; conflict of interest; obstruction of justice; denial of due process under the law; willful and intentional fabrication and authoring false evidence; misstating and mischaracterizing evidence; misrepresentation and concealment of material facts with knowledge of the truth with the intent to induce the court’s act or reliance; harassment; and intimidation on behalf of District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, former DA John Meehan, Tom Orloff, Rock Harmon, Kamala Harris, Maureen Lenahan, Valgeria Harvey, counselors L. Lavagetto, Ms. K. Pendergrass, Ms. Adler, Kris Ferre, and accountant Mr. Lovelady and others unnamed in the DA’s office; various judges and Commissioner Oleon’s abuse of discretion, willful misconduct, conduct prejudicial, illegal ex-parte communications and bias that resulted in error.
This was done to excuse and protect the Alameda County Department of Child Support Services from their ongoing conflict of interest in their alleging to represent the interest of Joette Hall, whom they had defrauded along with al-Hakim of the funds paid to the DCSS in trust for their minor child.
The Alameda County Department of Child Support Services was never representing the al-Hakim Hall family, they were defending and covering up their extrinsic fraud upon the state and the families. The Alameda County Department of Child Support Services wanted to conceal their attempted coercion of al-Hakim to pay the arrearage they created in his name. al-Hakim and his family had complained many times each year about the misapplication of the funds tendered to the Department of Child Support Services in trust for the al-Hakim Hall family.
The al-Hakim vs Rescue Rooter and CSAA case’s is an over $100 million, over 20 year; contentious action; was the largest, continuous case file in the history of Alameda County Superior Court, over 80 file boxes; over 300 motions and responses; plaintiff had over 300 exhibits; over 5,000 pages of exhibits; 3,000 pages of documents for rebuttal argument; 20 expert witnesses; 77 other witnesses; over 100 pages of jury instructions; with 17 Judges being Disqualified, volumes of convicting proof of over 40 more judicial misconduct cases, where EVERY judge in this case has admitted error, committed perjury, recused themselves, or all three! Most attorneys go their entire career and NEVER file a Challenge for Cause to Disqualify a Judge, in some cases it could dramatically affect their career irreparably.
In 2005 Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim filed a federal complaint with the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of a hate crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia committed against him during a trial in Superior Court of Alameda County, California, demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of persecution, litigation isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of al-Hakim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks by the parties, including but not limited to those listed herein!

The complaint, drafted and filed by al-Hakim, had broad based support from Democrats and Republicans, was submitted by Congresswoman Barbara Lee with the offices of Congressmen John Conyers, and Charles Rangel, reviewed by several legal experts, with advocacy by former Republican Senator J. C. Watts, a client of al-Hakim’s, moved forward with the investigation and charges of criminal extrinsic fraud upon the court of the State of California, fabricating and planting fabricated evidence, spoliation of evidence, and solicitation of perjurious testimony against defendants/hostile intervener AAA Insurance; Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski; and many others.
The complaint addresses concern that Superior Court Judges, defendants, defense counsels and others conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the bench upon which the judge rules is “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime, perhaps even more importantly, not only requested Merrily Friedlander, Chief of the Civil Rights Division, to make an investigation of a judicial hate crime, but also the many other civil rights and due process violations of judicial misconduct, and attorney extrinsic fraud upon the court and law that are themselves directly the matters complained.
After review in the U. S. A. G. Office, the case was thought of as being so egregious that even the infamous Bradley Schlozman, whom is now fired and facing Federal indictment with resigned former Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez for removing Democratic attorneys from the U. S. Attorneys Generals offices nationwide, sent al-Hakim a letter referring the matter (because of jurisdictional limitations) to the California State Attorney General, California State Bar Association, the California State Judicial Council, and California State Insurance Commissioner for investigation and prosecution. And these were Republican Judges and attorney’s being complained of!
This is their active retaliation, VENDETTA, against al-Hakim’s for his “advocacy and activism, race, religious belief, speech, political association or privileged conduct.” is being punished for: (1) attempting to cure abuses against him in the Alameda County Superior Court, State Supreme and Appeals Courts; (2) attempting to protect his constitutional rights from corrupt, biased, incompetent judges acting in concert with unscrupulous judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities illegally utilizing the full force and resources of the government in a covert criminal undercover sting operation; (3) exercising his right of free speech in making the above attempts and exposing the corruption; (4) exposing the inner workings of this covert overreaching judicial, governmental operation entailing judicial, political, corporate and law enforcement corruption; (5) the complicit inept judicial system of serious malfeasance, a complete denial of secrecy, security, and transparency that encompass anything that might threaten their cover; (6) the cover up of the judicial system; (7) the criminal justices ability to deliver injustice that prohibits their ability to defend themselves; (8) They have engaged in a total evisceration, disembowel al-Hakim’s rights!
al-Hakim’s actions fall under the Constitution and the Amendment and the duty of vigorous advocacy, where under color of law, these judicial, law enforcement, governmental and legal entities criminal corruption and persecution sought to deprive plaintiff of litigation due him contrary to the right to due process and immunity from takings without due process is a gross abuse of discretion in violation of the law that will violate plaintiff’s rights guaranteed under the First, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution; First Clause of Section 13 of Article I of California Constitution, art. VI, § 4 1/2; California Code of Civil Procedure §§ 355, 356, 473, 475; Civ. Code, §§ 3523, 3528.
This civil corruption, collusion and conspiracy has brought into play local, County, Sate and Federal Agencies in furtherance of their continued social, political, and legal castration of al-Hakim whom the CSAA defense attorneys admitted in 1998 they had al-Hakim surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of judicial and law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!
CSAA began to work with the defense in the underlying case of al-Hakim vs Rescue Rooter, et., al., even fabricating court orders to do so and were the defendants in this case of al-Hakim vs. CSAA. They also had al-Hakim investigated by the Department of Insurance, FBI, and other governmental, law enforcement, judicial and legal authorities and still worked as an operative, agents and informants with law enforcement trying to create a case against al-Hakim for fraud that NEVER existed, and still works with those forces today!
This was their beginning of the racist, Islamophobic, Xenophobic, hate induced campaign of calumny deceit in the law enforcement and legal community and public at large to obtain a litigation advantage! The Rescue case ended with the retiring judge David Lee informing the jury that ALL the testimony of the defense had to be disregarded due to the subornation of perjurious testimony of ALL their witnesses and the source of most of the basis for their documents.
In the CSAA case the defendants were found guilty of fraud in the appraisal and to have used illegal values by judge James Richmond. (see Richmond order of February 23, 2003, in Al-Hakim v. California State Automobile Association, C-811337)
Judge James A. Richman by his Order dated February 23, 2003 set aside the appraisal award because, among other grounds, “the award was procured by corruption, fraud, or other undue means”; or the appraisers “exceeded their powers and the award cannot be corrected without affecting the merits of the decision upon the controversy submitted”. The order further cited the improper use of “cash value” as replacement cost, use of erroneous “used cost” figures, denial of coverage, injection of fraud, concealment, breach of contract, and coverage issues without any reason or evidence
Due to their subornation of perjurious testimony in the Rescue trial, they did not have any witnesses nor experts the could present at their own trial.
This case is about a civil and criminal judicial, governmental, and law enforcement fraud that goes back to the Department Of Justice- U. S. Attorney General and NSA. The government can not defend this admitted fraud, embezzlement, breach of fiduciary, extortion (recorded conversation and all documents can be listen to and/or downloaded) and obstruction of justice in a MAJOR civil suit!
CSAA was rewarded for their efforts as they even represented the judge in this case, Judge Jon Tigar, in his Disqualification Challenge for Cause filed by al-Hakim, wherein Judge Tigar judged in their favor awarding them a judgment while al-Hakim was away at THREE (3) Funerals (the second and third during the trial) of over forty year friends with Tigar and the courts prior approval!
On Thursday, March 20, 2008, Plaintiff al-Hakim faxed a letter to Judge Jon Tigar in Department 21 and defense counsel Steve Barber to notify them that he had received the news of the tragic passing of Jerrold Woods, a very dear 40 year friend and associate and of plaintiff’s imminent leave for bereavement. He did so to facilitate the courts efforts and give them advance notice so that when the need for him to take the leave was necessary, he could do so without any unexpected disruption and then resuming the expected trial. While in open court, Tigar acknowledged the closeness of the relationship, the pain that al-Hakim must be enduring, and the request for leave of bereavement at some point and granted court permission while on the bench, to attend the funeral/memorial upon noticing the court of it scheduling.
On April 3, 2008, news was received by the community of the second and third deaths of over forty year friends occurred hours apart during the trial.
Since al-Hakim had not taken time to grieve and pay proper respect, on these occasion, it was not only necessary and desired, it was religiously obligatory. There was no other alternative comfortable for al-Hakim and the trial could surely be continued for three-four days given the circumstances of now two MORE deaths during the short time of the trial
al-Hakim, with previous court permission to attend the funerals less than two weeks earlier after the first death (the first of the trial) of the very close over 40 year friend from Judge Tigar, noticed the court Five times via personal service, fax, and email of his intent to attend the funerals with the courts prior approved leave seeking direction from Tigar, including personal service on Judge Tigar in the courtroom, Five days BEFORE the trial resumed and attending the TWO funerals and memorials, and Tigar took advantage of the opportunity, DID NOT RESPOND TO THE 5 NOTICES and decided the case in al-Hakim’s absence!
It should be noted that Tigar ADMITTED THAT HE HAD COMMITTED SUCH EGREGIOUS ERRORS THAT THEY DEMANDED A MISTRIAL, WHICH PLAINTIFF DECLARED AS WELL. Plaintiff acknowledges that this fact is a major factor in Tigar deciding the case in his absence in attempt to evade in many legal transgressions he committed during the case.
The government, with the parties including but not limited to those referenced herein, have commandeered and absconded with al-Hakim’s ENTIRE commercial VPS internet SERVER, WHM and multiple cPanels administration, destroying ALL the businesses Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation hosts websites entities Superstar Management, The Genius of Randy Wallace, Inc., Nowtruth, eX-whY Adventures, CAECAY and their websites: Amwftrust.org, Superstarmanagement.com, Ex-Why.com, Nowtruth.org, Greencleanascene.com, Nobooksnoballsports.org, Steppingto.org, Bawha.com, DrKenya.net, Fightfordrghosh.org, CAECAY.org, Nstrongharmony.org; ALL their email address accounts; propriety email list Futurist, MWBE, Newsalert, NIA, Superstars, Act, Lawaid, Politicos, AMWF, Super Bowl Guest, Entrepreneur, and SJA; logins to All services, ALL incoming and outgoing email, websites and website traffic in an effort to censor, suppress, conceal, and shut down their exposing the corruption of the courts and others, thereby covering up their criminal acts!
They have shut down ALL al-Hakim’s Twitter accounts: @ajalil, @FirstSSM, @Nowtruth1, @EXWHYAD, @griotz, @AMWFND, @electionwin, and @caecay.
They have “scrubbed” the internet of any references and shut down al-Hakim’s social media presence to silence his voice exposing the criminal activity of Kamala Harris, along with that of the Federal Judicial and Law Enforcement Authorities; Alameda County Superior Court and Administration, District Attorney and Agencies; City of Oakland Mayor, Administration, Services and their City Attorney; California Attorney General Javier Becerra; former Governor Jerry Brown, current Governor Gavin Newsome, and others.
Government Covertly Planted SpyWare on al-Hakim’s Company Computer
On June 17, 2018, al-Hakim found SpyWare covertly planted on al-Hakim’s company computer through his web browser when he logged into his Interserver and U. S. Courts account.
SpyWare is programed to take control of your camera and microphone, to spy on their Computer Activities, Instant Message, Chats, Software usage, Take Screenshots Remotely, See File Transfers, Capture Key logs, Spy on Media Files, Spy on Emails, Spy on Browser Activities, monitor your workplace or home remotely, notify them if it detects your computers activities, including an alarm system, a recording system, and sending screengrabs of your PC or mobile phone. The SpyWare can connect to multiple IP cameras and microphones, then automatically starts recording whenever it captures motion and enable live remote viewing from any PC.
It’s a terrifying invasion of privacy that defendants with government agencies like the NSA can take control of the webcam and microphone on your computer and spy on you without your knowledge.
Previously, censorship had been implemented by them by blocking and blacklisting plaintiffs servers IP’s, device IP’s, domain IP’s, email addresses with accomplices SORBS, SpamHaus, RBL, SURBL, Mailchannels, Trouble-Free.net, Barracuda, ABUSE.NET, Exploits Bot List (XBL), AbuseIPDB, Invaluement, MXToolBox, MultiRBL, URIBL, SURBL, Composite Blocking List (CBL), Passive Spam Block List (PSBL), with reverse DNS verifications, DNSBL blocks, surveilled email content, censored email content, blocked or throttled email distribution as Internet filters, firewalls, Internet blocking, DNS poisoning, and Internet zoning.  It is currently used by some organizations and governments to control the content viewed by individuals accessing Web pages over the Internet. The largest complaint about Internet censorship is that it ignores free-speech rights and violates the civil liberties of Internet users.
That censorship along with AMWF’s server and hosted websites being intentionally mis-configured by defendants it is causing the many, many, over 40 years of creating a brand, establishing goodwill, proprietary client email list and email distribution to those lists, clients intellectual property, trade secrets, clients data, content, website service pages, articles, posts, videos, podcasts, features, photos, marketing, promotion, testimonials, social media, email lists, simple inter-company and inter-office email communications, the theft and missing proprietary client email list, the theft and missing clients intellectual property, the theft and missing clients trade secrets, the theft and missing clients data, links to partner websites (blogroll), thousands of broken links prevent access to all these features via website visits, search engines, and by blocking web IP’s, server IP’s, device (computers, phones, tablets, etc.) IP’s, email addresses, ALL INTERNET CONNECTED AND RELATED COMMUNICATIONS AND DEVICES, referrals, from ALL the above mentioned sources, for all intents and purposes, burying the business.

Kamala Harris's father slams her as a Race-Grifter for making a 'travesty' of her Jamaican heritage

MEDIA ADVISORY
Kamala Harris Isn’t African-American. She’s Ethnically Indian and Jamaican. That’s Not The Same Thing.
KCamela Everything Everybody BlackJoe Biden recently implied blacks in America are a monolith. Now, by calling his Vice Presidential pick Kamala Harris “African-American,” the media is endorsing his racist position that all blacks are the same.
While the media will continue to portray Harris as African-American, it’s important to note her mother was from India, and her father from Jamaica.
That’s not typically what people think of when they say “African-American”, but she can go around pretending to be “Black”.
And I suspect there will be a large number of African-Americans across the United States who aren’t happy with their ethnicity or race being co-opted to suit a political candidate who shares little with them.
The same for the Native Americans who weren’t so hot on Elizabeth Warren prancing around pretending to be one of them, in order to further her career.
The truth many are learning, and that many already knew, is that the left does in fact class all immigrants as one group, and they ruthlessly attack ethnic minorities who deviate and criticize the liberal plantation. I should know, I’ve been one of them.
Kamala Harris needs to be “CALLED OUT” as a race-grifter. She can’t run as an “African-American” and let true Blacks- starving for anything that remotely fashions itself as “their success”, and the Democratic Party Pimps get away with co-opting race in this shameful way.
Political activist Ali Alexander — of half African extraction himself — noted the matter over a year ago, tweeting: “Kamala Harris is *not* an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican. I’m so sick of people robbing American Blacks (like myself) of our history. It’s disgusting.”
He was met with derision from white liberal reporters in the establishment media, who demanded there was no difference.
The fact the Democrats would select an Indian-Jamaican candidate and bill them as African-American in year marred by Black Lives Matter riots would usually be unthinkable.
Then you remember they continuously call men who identify as women, “women,” and allow them to “be women”.
Her mother is Indian and her father from Jamaica.

Of course this short post is going to send the media into a tailspin as they attempt to defend Harris and steer Biden toward the White House.
They’ll call this important distinction a “racial attack,” on Harris, as they have on the past.
But don’t take my word for it.
Kamala Harris’s own father has lashed out about her race-grifting, telling a Canadian magazine in 2019:
My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.

Kamala Harris’s father is slamming her for making a ‘travesty’ of her Jamaican heritage
Allen Abel: Donald Harris’s rebuke over ‘pot-smoking joy seeker’ stereotype is one thing the Democratic presidential contender is disinclined to talk about. Another is her time in Canada.
By Allen Abel February 18, 2019 
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., speaks during a campaign event at South Church in Portsmouth, N.H. (Elise Amendola/AP/CP) 
Updated on Feb. 19, 2019 at 12:40 p.m. ET to include response from Kamala Harris and details of later appearances
Eighty-nine weeks from the White House, front-running, formidable and fierce, yet publicly scorned as a “travesty” by her own father, Kamala Harris, hyper-ambitious presidential candidate and former unwilling Quebecker, paces the old stone cathedral.
We’re at South Church, founded in 1713 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on the Atlantic’s snow-flogged shore, but it could be anywhere in the 50 American states; anywhere that there are cameras and dollars and votes to be pocketed and rivals to be slandered and slain. Hundreds of New Englanders cram the prayer hall, the home of a Unitarian Universalist congregation that is based not on a single Savior, but on “Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.”
Like South Church, the campaign to confront Donald Trump in the 2020 election offers—at this ridiculously early but already fraught and frantic stage—a deity to suit every desire. At least two dozen Democrats already have, or soon will, enter the contest. In June, they will begin to debate each other on stages as wide as wheat farms. Next February—that’s still a year away!—the first intra-party primary elections and arcane county caucuses will begin to winnow the crop. So here we go.
Senators, congresswomen, mayors, governors, billionaires—Beto, Bernie, Bloomberg, Biden; Amy, Kirsten, Tulsi, Pocahontas; Hickenlooper, Inslee, Buttigieg, Bullock—all are in it now, or soon will be. Just as it was with the Republicans in 2016, she or he who talks loudest and most profanely is most likely to be heard above the Democratic din. At every whistle stop, in every city and hamlet, the raw odors of vanity and conceit assault the nose. But also, this time, there are coos of love and healing in the air.
Here’s another metaphor—imagine a round of pool with 25 multi-colored balls on the baize and only one corner pocket. Charge the ablest players half a billion dollars to ante up. Estimate the trillions of permutations of rebound, ricochet, angle, scratch and spin. And then try to run the table while an orange-skinned shark—call him Fifth Avenue Fats—leans over the rail, licking his lips, chalking his cue, eager to eat the winner.

Back to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Kamala Harris, a first-term U.S. Senator and former San Francisco prosecutor and state attorney general—“the best-looking attorney general in the country,” Barack Obama once called her, a career-ending slur for anyone else in these touchy times—is on her first campaign visit to the Granite State, a sliver of bedrock, ski slopes, and escaped Bostonians whose “first in the nation” primary gives it a numinous status among this country’s peripatetic career politicos. (Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada also are in the early-state recipe, with Harris’s behemoth California to join them in February balloting for the first time in 2020. Advantage, Kamala?)
The senator’s stump speech, which she will give from 20 to 50 times a week for the next 21 months, should she last that long in the race, is heavy on her prosecutorial experience and her eagerness to take on a divisive, calamitous incumbent. Even at the pulpit, she never invokes the homilies of her multiple religious roots, or gives thanks for the support of her husband of four and a half years—a California attorney of the Jewish faith—or mentions his two college-age children by a previous marriage: a son named for John Coltrane, a daughter for Ella Fitzgerald. Domesticity, her culinary skills, the multi-cultural and bi-national aspects of her life—none is touched today. Eighty-nine weeks from the White House, the business of the campaign already is serious business.
“I plan on prosecuting the case against people who do not tell the truth,” she says to a roaring, whooping, left-leaning clientele that has been waiting in the fluffing snow for hours, snaking around Portsmouth’s preciously curated shops and its handy-crafty market-stalls, with the first balloting still a spring and a summer and an autumn and another winter away.
Then (on the need for a single-payer, government-run health care program):
“The system is immoral.”
And (on gun control):
“We should never bow down to those who have a love of money while people are dying in the streets.”
And:
“We are looking at an America today where American values and American dreams are under attack.”
But there is much more about Kamala Harris to be said, and told, and learned. As with all of our lives, there are conflicts and complications, secrets and mysteries. But unlike all but two dozen of us on this planet, she yearns to be President of the United States, and she may well succeed.
“I am a proud daughter of Oakland, California,” Harris said in January, when she formally announced her candidacy at Howard University, her “historically black” alma mater in Washington, D.C. That she considers herself to be African-American is beyond dispute—“I was born black and I will die black,” she told a radio interviewer a few days ago. Crucial to her candidacy will be her defense of her record of filling the penitentiaries of the Golden State with legions of young African-American men. But the annals of American politics reveal that personality and personal history will triumph over policy every time. So it matters deeply to the voters of all the nation’s Portsmouths not only what Kamala Harris says, but who she is.

Again: “I was born black.” Yet Sen. Harris’s mother, née Shyamala Gopalan, was a Brahmin Hindu born in Chennai (Madras), the oceanside megalolopolis of the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu; and her father, raised in Brown’s Town, educated in Port Antonio and at the University of the West Indies, is as Jamaican as the sun and the sea. (Dr. Shyamala Gopalan Harris died in 2009 at the age of 70.) Just as Barack Hussein Obama is the mixed-race descendent of tribal Kenya and sunflowery Kansas, Kamala Harris, potentially Obama’s successor’s successor, is every bit as not-really-a-real-American as her desperate opponents may choose to make her out to be. Will that matter?
(For a few days in January, an asinine and racist “birther” conspiracy against Sen. Harris circulated on the Internet’s extreme right wing—namely, that since her mother was from India and her father was from Jamaica and neither of them had lived in the United States for five full years before Kamala’s birth, she could not be a “natural-born citizen” as required of the president and vice-president by the U.S. Constitution. This was patently and crudely false—Harris’s birth in California swaddled her in American citizenship the instant she drew her first breath. President Trump often has ranted against “birthright citizenship” to enflame his base, but 
The Donald’s nativist ravings carry no weight in law; at least not yet.)
So far in the 2019-2020 campaign, there has not been much in the way of personal slander. None of the six or seven or eight sitting senators in the race has torn a colleague to shreds. (“That will come later,” Sen. Lindsey Graham coyly predicted to a Maclean’s reporter in Washington last week.) 
But when Sen. Harris sniggered on New York City radio program that, like the sky-high Honolulu stoner Obama, she had thoroughly enjoyed marijuana—and that, unlike Bill Clinton, she had inhaled—she explained her behavior by saying, “Half my family’s from Jamaica! Are you kidding me?”
Her father exploded.
Donald Harris, 81, professor emeritus of economics at Stanford University, divorced from Shyamala Gopalan since 1972, offered this comment to the website Jamaica Global Online, whose editor, Ian Randle, shared it exclusively with Maclean’s:
My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.
This was not Harris’s first incursion into the ambitions of the elder of his two daughters. (His younger child, Maya Lakshmi Harris, a prominent liberal attorney, professor of law, senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the wife of Obama’s associate attorney general, Tony West, is Kamala’s national campaign chair.) In a December article on Jamaica Global Online, the girls’ father took pains to enumerate Kamala’s Caribbean experiences and to reassert the depth of her island heritage. Yet in her new campaign manifesto, The Truths We Hold, Prof. Donald Harris disappears on Page 20 of 300, and never is mentioned again.
The early phase of interaction with my children came to an abrupt halt in 1972, Dr. Harris wrote, when, after a hard-fought custody battle in the family court of Oakland, California, the context of the relationship was placed within arbitrary limits imposed by a court-ordered divorce settlement based on the false assumption by the State of California that fathers cannot handle parenting (especially in the case of this father, “a neegroe from da eyelans” was the Yankee stereotype, who might just end up eating his children for breakfast!). Nevertheless, I persisted, never giving up on my love for my children or reneging on my responsibilities as their father.
In the United States Senate—and especially in her vehement shredding of Brett Kavanaugh (“I’m asking you a very direct question: yes or no”) during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing and Jeff Sessions (“I’m not able to be rushed this fast. It makes me nervous”) during the Russian-collusion investigations, Kamala Harris presented herself as anything but a pot-smoking joy-seeker. “There are flaws in the criminal-justice system and this system needs to be reformed,” she said at Howard U. “Instead of being soft on crime or tough on crime, we need to be smart on crime.”
Barack Obama’s father bolted back to Africa when his son was three years old. They met only once more before Obama, Sr.’s death. But Donald Harris is very much alive. “I have decided to stay out of all the political hullabaloo,” he told Ian Randle, the editor of the Jamaican website (Donald Harris declined to be interviewed for this story). But his vow already has been broken. How much more will we be hearing from him about his daughter’s histories?
And then there is the Canadian/Québécois chapter, another blank page in the candidate’s life.
Shyamala Gopalan of Chennai and Donald Harris of Brown’s Town met and married on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley amid the seething ferment and sexual electricity of a social and cultural revolution. Shyamala—the daughter of a man who had crusaded alongside Jawaharlal Nehru in the campaign for India’s independence from the British Raj—had graduated from the University of New Delhi. At 19 she was confronted with an existential choice—to weigh millennia of expectations and an arranged marriage against emigration and a new life of laboratory science and freedom to choose her own love.
Swept up in the Bay Area’s white-hot protests for equal rights for blacks, Shyamala chose the side of the oppressed minority, and weaned her girls on chanted slogans, justice marches and home-drawn picket signs.
“These were my mother’s people,” Kamala writes in The Truths We Hold. “In a country where she had no family, they were her family—and she was theirs. From almost the moment she arrived from India, she chose and was welcomed to and enveloped in the black community. It was the foundation of her new American life.”
RELATED: What lies ahead for the Democratic party?
Then, suddenly, Shyamala Harris—scientist and single mom—turned her back on the struggle and flew away. Again, from Kamala’s book:
When I was in middle school, we had to leave. My mother was offered a unique opportunity in Montreal, teaching at McGill University and conducting research at the Jewish General Hospital. It was an exciting step in advancing her career.
It was not, however, an exciting opportunity for me. I was twelve years old, and the thought of moving away from sunny California in February, in the middle of the school year, to a French-speaking foreign city covered in twelve feet of snow was distressing, to say the least. My mother tried to make it sound like an adventure, taking us to buy our first down jackets and mittens, as if we were going to be explorers of the great northern winter. But it was hard for me to see it that way. It was made worse when my mother told us that she wanted us to learn the language, so she was enrolling us in a neighborhood school for native French speakers, Notre-Dame-des-Neiges—Our Lady of the Snows.
It was a difficult transition, since the only French I knew was from my ballet classes, where Madame Bovie, my ballet teacher, would shout, ‘Demi–plié, and up!’ I used to joke that I felt like a duck, because all day long at our new school I’d be saying ‘Quoi? Quoi? Quoi?’
“By the time I got to high school, I had adjusted to our new surroundings,” she later concedes. And then not another word about Westmount High, about Montreal, about Quebec in the parlous hour of the first independence referendum, about her own coming-of-age.
“Let me begin with a simple statement: Indonesia is part of me,” Barack Obama said in the Bahasa language in Jakarta in 2010. (He lived there from age six to 10 with his mother and her Indonesian husband.) So Canadians may wonder, how much is Quebec part of Kamala Harris, if at all?
The morning after the whoop-fest at the old seacoast Universalist church, the junior senator from California speaks to a far more restrained gathering at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on the campus of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, an hour inland. The affair is called “Politics & Eggs” and it has been attended by every presidential candidate since the days of the black-and-white photograph. Yes, even Donald Trump came here, and Donald Trump almost never speaks to the unfiltered public.
 Manchester,  the phrases that brought down the temple in Portsmouth barely ripple the pond. Harris’s tripwire pledge of “Medicare For All” garners only silence; the words “Kavanaugh,” “Trump,” and “Green New Deal” are never even uttered. There are at least 20 other Democrats yet to hear from, and 50 weeks before the Granite State primary for all of them to be heard.
When the breakfast concludes, a Maclean’s reporter approaches the candidate and asks about Quebec in 1980, how—if—a high school student’s exposure to the crucible of ethnic, linguistic “identity politics”—the very words her own father abjures—affected her values and her views.
“It was certainly very significant,” she responds. “It was about people wanting to be recognized, wanting equal treatment for their culture.”
“Were you a Oui or a Non?” the candidate is asked.
“It was a very significant moment,” says Kamala Harris. “But I was too young to vote.”
