158 years after emancipation, nobody in their right mind can deny that Black America is uniquely endowed with the divine right to have and to harness their own political power.
A modern day political party must be digitize, weaponize, monetize, mechanize, tokenize, blockchain, self-funding and cryptostrong to conquer the emerging unchartered waters of the digital era. Your political party is the tour operator of your life.
In the teaching of economics, to measure the effect of changes to the economy, you introduce one new factor and assume all other things stay the same. Multiple factors come into play in real life, and seemingly unrelated things cause ripples through the economy. After the enslavement of Black people ended in 1865, the American economy grew substantially in the north due to increased industrialization. There was initial turmoil with the theoretical loss of enslaved people in the south, but in reality, southern legislators enacted the Black Codes.
The Black Codes reimplemented slavery as best they could under the law. Mississippi and South Carolina issued the first Black Codes. In Mississippi, former slaves were required to show proof of employment each January. Suppose they left their employment before the end of the year. They would forfeit their wages and become subject to arrest. In South Carolina, if Black people worked in any other occupation besides farmer or servant, they were subject to an annual tax. Failure to pay would lead to forced servitude on a plantation. Black people were unable to own guns and knives.
NEW YORK, NY — Whether New Yorkers will get a look at Mayor Eric Adams' full tax return has become as cryptic as, well, the tax code.
The mayor — who last week refused to commit to publicly releasing his tax returns, as is tradition — finally promised Tuesday he would release "tax information," but wouldn't say whether that means he'd follow suit of previous mayors and put out his full returns.
"Now, remember, I'm not required. Let's get that clear," Adams said when asked at an unrelated press conference on Staten Island. "We will release tax information."
FELLOW NY'ERS ERIC ADAMS IS CORRUPTED
Mayor Eric Adams has declared “there is nothing more important” to him than transparency, but when it comes to thorny issues like his personal taxes or potential conflicts of interest within his administration, his record to date is cloudy.
Last year THE CITY noted that tax forms he’d filed with the IRS in prior years raised questions about whether he’d improperly written off repairs to his personal apartment. In response, he promised to file amended forms and make them public to clear the air.
To date he’s provided no evidence that he did that.
Then THE CITY discovered he’d failed to file the required gift tax form over a co-op he claimed he’d “gifted” years ago to a friend. Again he vowed all the required paperwork would be mailed out to the IRS pronto and disclosed to New Yorkers.
Again he’s released no proof that he did what he promised to do.

A message from G.O. to you all.
I am to this day still honored and humbled by my first travel brand – G.O. Shuttle and Tours. That won the renowned Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau “New Business of the Year, 1997”.
After a distinguished 10-year career in the USAF, that award is still the one that I cherish above all others.
A tour operator cannot survive in any city without the
support of the local convention and visitors’ bureau.
In an uphill struggle of The Ages, it didn’t matter that I was a paid member, Veteran, a family man and a taxpayer to boot. Mike Testa and Visit Sacramento simply saw an upstart Black man fairly competing with and taking market share from their mediocre White cronies.
The silver lining of going out of business and relocating back home to Brooklyn was that I got to spend four precious years with my mom before she passed away.
Consequently, I rolled up my sleeves and started working on
Travel in Peace Nation. That is a fine, fine thing as
without that, the COVID pandemic would have wiped me out with no trace in 2020.
Fellow New Yorkers, take reassurance in the fact that I have conducted and hosted 100s of tours, including to Africa, Italy, Scotland, London, Paris and our great world city of New York.
There is one universal truth that needs to be understood. And that is that all tours have three components – a start date, an end date and an itinerary.
TIPNation.NYC believes that 47 million Black Americans are now at the end of their “American slavery adventure”. Consequently, we are all aware that we absolutely need to set our own political itinerary.
Further, that it is imperative that we follow Andrew Yang’s
observation that we not only start our own political party, but that we guide it to inevitable political ascendancy.
We look like generational fools waiting for Biden's Dems to do the right thing. We are generational cowards if we let corrupted Eric Adams stop and frisk our precious children in 2022.
In the shadow of that, the deranged and punitive Eric Adams bringing back “Stop and Frisk” on the streets of NYC is tantamount to neo-colonialism and is done so with the full
cooperation of the Jim Crow Democratic party.
That this has been implemented in the midst of a then surging pandemic is both an abomination and an affront to civilized life.
Black, Brown and Progressive New Yorkers, take note - Eric Adams and analog Jim Crow Democrats and
Republicans can never be allowed to control our collective destiny.
THE BITCH WITCH IS WORKING FOR HER BILLIONAIRE RUSSIAN DONOR, NOT NEW YORKERS. ERIC ADAMS IS BLOOMBERG'S BLACK PUPPET.
No-one can now deny that vice-president Kamala Harris’ homecoming cruise to Jamaica will for sure be the greatest tour on Earth. Even more so in our post pandemic world.
Vice president Harris you are clearly the reason why Biden won the White House. Therefore, the country needs you to run under Andrew Yang’s 2KUSA Forward Party.
Black America needs to set a date for your homecoming cruise to Jamaica. That very date will finally, officially, end the slavery era.
That date will be Black America's true emanpication date not June 19th.
Let there be no doubt, the racists and fascists will be overcome, allowing AOC’s Climate and Tourism Corps and Andrew Yang's 2KUBI to transform American forever.
New York City and America, if you truly want to stop
the blizzard of bullets that butchers our young and best, then give young people real AOC inspired hope!
“The thing to do is to get organized; keep separated and you will be exploited, you will be robbed, you will be killed. Get organized and you will compel the world to respect you.”
Shared missions win wars.
Real Americans go to war.
Jim Crow Biden and Sellout Eric Adams must die politically for
this great nation to heal.

Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living generation, according to population estimates released this month by the U.S. Census Bureau. Millennials, define as those ages 18-34 in 2015, now number 75.4 million, surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69).
As the youngest generation with disposable income, they have secured their status as leaders in travel and tourism.
We believe that 90 million young voters are ready to embrace a new political party that embeds progressive ideas, universal basic income, social movements, global travel and supports self-funding which effectively eliminates lobbyists dictating policy.
TIP Political Party will be the first political party to embrace the internet and shared economic age.

The Last Tourist is a documentary on the future of travel. The thing that makes my heart beat faster and is truly the only thing I want to be doing full-time (next to writing).
The world has changed. And our ability to travel in it, changed it. We went from only seeing things in National Geographic to experiencing them directly for ourselves... in droves. Sacred spaces became public places where hordes of humans convened to get the perfect "I was here" social media shot. To be there, stopped being about the people and places. It became about the stuff - the social proof of lining up for a mountainside swing, or a sunset shot of the Eiffel tower.
We somewhere along the way lost sight of our role in all of its demise. Turning foreign faraway spaces into Moon Parties and animal slave circuses. And, my heart broke.
For all of it. I have been part of the problem in the past. I haven't always made the right choices. I too am learning. Airplane travel picked up in the 70's when less than 25 million travelled. Now 1.9 billion a year. Travel is a machine and our requests for all inclusive, animal shows, and voluntourism is lining pockets not in countries we visit but in large corporations... western corporations.
You go to Mexico and stay on resort. Visit Jamaica but never interact with a local beyond the bar staff. It's sad. We're sad. We're lining the pockets of the rich while the locals get pushed out. We don't go to the local shops and restaurants for fear of what? That it'll be different than we're used to.
Travel is supposed to be different. You travel to experience, to understand. Floating Americas in the form of mini-city cruise ships isn't travel. It's exploitation and a change of scene with the exact same amenities you've always had. It has to change. I'm tired of seeing mountains of party garbage on Asian beaches or cruises that underpay locals or push them out altogether.
We vote with our dollars. Photo with a drugged tiger... you voted MORE, PLEASE. Volunteerism at an Orphanage... you voted MORE, PLEASE. Cruise Ships with no local experiences... you voted MORE, PLEASE.
While the movie gave multiple options for HOW to be a better traveller, this one really sticks for me and always has "if this existed at home, would it be ok? right? welcomed?".
If the answer is no, stop voting for it with your dollars. Go, watch the documentary IMMEDIATELY.
Become passionate about travelling better, changing a massive industry, and voting with your dollars for things that support local communities, protect animals and humans, and most of all... allow us the true experiences and heart space of the people and places we choose to visit.

A Different Kind of Black Irish - Grady O’Bryant Explores His Irish Connection
When Grady Gregory O’Bryant reported to his new duty station in Fairbanks, Alaska, one of the sergeants pulled out his wallet and gave another sergeant a $20 bill. He’d lost his bet that O’Bryant was a redheaded Irishman.
Like many African-Americans, O’Bryant’s Irish connection is evident in his name. Think Shaquille O’Neal, Mariah Carey, Eddie Murphy and Dizzy Gillespie. While not well documented, some trace this phenomenon to free blacks and Irish immigrants having children together in the mid-1800s. “Mixed-race children would have been given Irish surnames when their Irish fathers married their black mothers, or when their unmarried Irish mothers named children after themselves,” reports a 2003 New York Times article.
Despite such an Irish-sounding name and a career in the travel industry, O’Bryant didn’t visit Ireland until last year when he led a tour group there.
“Growing up in Brooklyn with the name Grady Gregory O’Bryant Jr., I was always asked if I was Black Irish,” O’Bryant said. ”I’ve always been intrigued with Ireland. So when I started taking groups to international destinations, Ireland was high on my list.”
Now, he’s hooked.
“I really enjoyed the Irish people,” O’Bryant said. “Everyone was friendly and warm. I also loved the beautiful scenery.”
UBI PROGRESSIVE AMERICA, What Now For the Jim Crow Travel Industry?
The COVID-19 pandemic has, as we all know, turned the world upside-down. The way we interact with other people, one of the most basic yet fundamental traits of humankind, has been massively disrupted. Economies have floundered.
How we work has had to be completely re-thought. And modern travel, those multi-billion-dollar myriad of threads that for so long have intertwined around the world, is fighting to establish how best to survive, let alone move forward post-pandemic.
Which raises huge questions in itself –should an intrinsically racist travel industry even be allowed to make a comeback after the pandemic? Or is there actually a compelling argument for creating Senator's Ocasio-Cortez Climate & Tourism Corps for the benefit of all humankind?
The majority of humans are non-white people of color. Unsurprisingly, despite their minority status, the travel industry remains in the clutches of an elite white cabal. That simply cannot continue.
Ladies! The time is now upon us to harness our political fortitude and commence full blown economic resistance.
Trump my have left the White House, but the poison he has left behind continues to blight our every day lives. Biden offers nothing of any real progressive substance, while DINOs Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin actively conspire with a GOP that is still caught in Trump’s hypnotic, cult-like gaze. We need radical economic change to stop further damage to every day Americans and it should then come as no surprise that we have long supported Andrew Yang’s 2K Freedom Dividend as a great starting point!
Ladies, as you know all too well, the old boys club in D.C have for years turned a blind eye to
the plight of women around the planet. The #MeToo movement is nothing more to them than a
“feminist echo chamber”, on a par with their other object of disdain, BLM. Now that has been
ramped up to a full-blown assault on women and their reproductive rights, courtesy of Texas
dragging their miserable “six-week heart-beat bill” lawyers in front of the (conservative leaning)
We have to organize and mobilize and we need female help with that more than ever before. We
know our fellow female citizens are suffering like never before – Trumpism, fascism, the
pandemic and now the war on Roe -v- Wade. We call on you to join TIP (Travel in Peace)
Political Party while we are still young, so as to help us formulate policy and strategy for the
future. In doing so, we can make real history by synergizing our respective movements across
the land, exponentially increasing our power and influence, enabling us to repeatedly signal to
the DNC, the RNC and Corporate, racist America, that it really is no longer politics as usual.
Those days are done. The slavery era is dead.
Full Reproduction Rights for Women
As we know, at a time when the rest of the Western world is ploughing on with increasingly
progressive socio-economic and political agendas, the US is conspicuous in that it is
headed in the completely opposite direction – a direction has an increasingly bleak looking
horizon to it. And chillingly, roughly 40% of the population of the country is actively cheering
on a brazen descent into demolishing women’s reproductive rights.
Take for example the recent troubling events in Texas (and increasingly in copy-cat states
elsewhere) that has now made it to a conservative dominated Supreme Court. And, as sure
as night follows day, the Supreme Court has again tossed another request from abortion
providers in the state who were looking to block the draconian six-week ban on abortions.
In doing so, the Lone Star state has shown itself to be the spear-head of a conservative –
Evangelical movement that seemingly finds its inspiration in the Dark Ages of patriarchal
Europe. Women are reduced to nothing more than breeding chattel, subject to the whims
and wishes of their male over-lords. Female productive rights mean absolutely nothing to
them and they revel in that fact like a pig does in mud.
Other states, in what was once the confederacy, of course, are headed down exactly the
same route, taking their inspiration from what is happening in both Texas and the Supreme
Court. It cannot be stressed enough, Roe -v-Wade, which is settled law by nearly 50 years,
is in very real, very mortal, danger.
STOP & FRISK AND FAILURE TO ERADICATE THE FILIBUSTER IS A
DECLARATION OF WAR ON BLACK AMERICA.
REVERSING ROE V WADE IS A DECLARATION OF WAR ON 162 MILLION AMERICAN WOMEN
Cybermonsters that's why we ask that you join Tip and Forward's fight, while we are still in our infancy.
Together, we can unite the various progressive movements into one political powerhouse. We will be able to send not only the DNC, but all of America a message.
We will send them the message that Universal Basic Income and Universal Global Travel for all NEW YORKERS will be the law of the land.
We will send them the message that the status quo cannot stand. .
We will not stand idly by while corrupt politicians ruin our future and stop and frisk law abiding black and brown men.
We will not stand idly by while corrupt politicians imprison people for non-violent drug offenses. We will not stand idly by while the environment is being destroyed and watch our children die by gun fire, we will be the generation to save the planet and our children
Like it or Not, the Democratic Party is a Right-Wing Party
BY ERIC SPENCER
Despite being branded as the party of the American “left,” the Democratic Party is a corrupt, pro-war, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker, anti-environment, authoritarian party that uses censorship, neo-McCarthyite smears and a militarized police force to squash decent.
Even Bernie Sanders, and the small handful of other progressive voices within the party, would be
