Bill Maher Calls Out Oprah Winfrey & Americans On Our Greed

December 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Bill Maher says Americans worship money and material things over religion.

An example is how Oprah’s stiudio audience goes crazy when she reveals the gifts she has for them.

Does Bill Maher have a point? Is Christmas, the holidays, or just plain everything about money in the end??

I tend to think so. But I hope not.

Wikileaks Leaker Bradley Manning Has Been ‘Tortured’ Since May 2010 In A Military Prison

December 17, 2010 1 comment

DeathAndTaxesMag –  Manning has spent the last five months detained at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia—before that he spent two months in a military jail in Kuwait, all the while facing conditions that constitute cruel and inhumane treatment and even torture. Manning was charged with the unauthorized use and disclosure of U.S. classified information.

In an article for Salon, Glenn Greenwald reports that interviews with several sources familiar with the conditions of Manning’s detention, including Lt. Brian Villiard, a Quantico brig Officer, confirmed that the accused leaker is subject to detention conditions likely to create long-term psychological injuries. Continue Reading…

Bradley Manning should have been Time's 2010 person of the year.

Bradley Manning, private first class soldier for the United States Army, is the soldier who leaked the “Collateral Murder” video, the Granai airstrike video, and 250,000 diplomatic cables to the Wikileaks website.

The intelligence analyst has been detained by the U.S military since May of 2010 and has spent the last 5 months at the U.S Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia.

He has been denied the right to exercise, held in solitary confinement for 23 hours of the day, and his mental and physical health have been deteriorating because of this abuse.

Bradley Manning is a homosexual and reportedly felt isolated under the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Manning is the real hero in this whole Wikileaks scandal. He sacrificed his entire life to expose the criminal acts of the United States Military.

Juliun Assange spent 2 weeks in solitary confinement while Manning has spent the last 7 months in a military prison under even worse conditions.

On top of all that, Manning faces up to 52 years on criminal charges.

Bradley Manning is an American hero and should be respected as one.

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Surrenders To Authorities In London To Face Rape Charges

December 7, 2010 Leave a comment

CNN – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange handed himself over to police Tuesday, promptly appeared in court where he was denied bail, and left for jail in a police van.

Julian Assange surrenders to London authorities to face rape charges.

A judge will now decide whether to extradite him to Sweden to face questioning over allegations he had sexual relations with two women without their consent. He has not been charged with a crime. Continue Reading…

Julian Assange, the founder of the infamous Wikileaks website, has been arrested after surrendering to London police.

He was denied bail because he is an obvious flight risk. England will attempt to extradite him to Sweden to face rape charges.

The political prisoner is accused of raping two women over a year ago. Officially, he has been charged with two counts of sexual molestation, one count of rape, and one count of sexual coercion.

According to the San Fransisco Chronicle,  Assange had consensual sex with 2 ‘activist’ women who were attracted to him because of his rebel, ‘activist’ ways. The second women he slept with says the condom broke during sex and Assange didn’t stop. The first women simply says they had sex without a condom.

I think the girls are mad because he didn’t call them back.

The arrest comes on the heels of a new, damaging Wikileaks cable that was released yesterday. The “Clinton cable” release details places around the world that are important to the National Security of the United States.

Now that’s how you go out with a bang!!

Free Julian Assange!! Free Julian Assange!!!

 

Iraqi-born NYU Professor Installs Camera In The Back Of His Head

December 3, 2010 Leave a comment

DailyMail – A New York University professor has had a camera implanted in the back of his head – and it was done all in the name of art.

Wafaa Bilal has what it takes to make change even if he is crazy. Just look at the mirror!!

Iraqi-born Wafaa Bilal had the procedure done at a piercing studio last month for a project commissioned by a museum in Qatar.

The camera will broadcast everything he ‘sees’ to the public and will be transmitted to Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in time for their December 30 opening. Continue Reading

New York University professor Wafaa Bilal has surgically installed a camera to the back of his head.

The Iraqi-born photographer’s camera, that is located in the back of his head, will take snap-shots every minute.

The camera will be streamed to the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in the Arab Country Qatar.

It seems as though Bilal wants to give people in the Arab world a look into life in the United States.

He is crazy and a genius at the same time. A camera in the back of your head is crazy but maybe it will help Arabs be more sympathetic and caring for Americans and American life.

Because lord knows it ain’t that easy living in America.

Michelle Obama Is The Most Powerful Woman In The World

CBS San Francisco – Not to be confused with the richest women in the world, Forbes has released their list of the most powerful. These are the ladies that can influence pop culture, politics, business, and the entire planet. See where your favorite lady falls on the list. Top 25…

 

Michelle Obama & Oprah Winfrey are two of the most powerful women in the world

Michelle Obama got the #1 spot and Oprah Winfrey took #3. How is that for African-American woman??

Two of the top 3 most powerful women in the world are African-American.

This list shows that black women are making strides but there is still much progress to be made.

African-American women are the least likely demographic to be married in America. I can’t help but think that bad role models and a lack of good role models are reasons for this problem.

Instead of idolizing Nikki Minaj, Rihanna, or Kat Stacks, young sistas should look up to women who do big things like Michelle Obama & Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah & Michelle Obama are larger than life figures that can go over the heads of many young african-american women. Therefore, we need more african-american women to become local role models so that they can share more similarities with their followers.

Rick Sanchez Fired From CNN For Calling Jon Stewart A Bigot

NY POST – CNN anchor Rick Sanchez was fired Friday by the news network after he went on a tirade during a radio interview calling Jon Stewart a “bigot” and accusing the “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” of labeling him as “second-tier” because of his Cuban-American background, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company,” the statement from CNN said. “We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well,” it added. Continue Reading…

Rick Sanchez Fired For Calling Jon Stewart A Bigot

Rick Sanchez is right when he questions Jewish people being labeled as ‘minorities.’ Rick Sanchez is also right when he says he is labeled as “second tier” because of his Cuban background.

Rick Sanchez’s point is that there are “Haves” & “Have Nots.” 

Even though I like Jon Stewart and I don’t think he’s a bigot. He does have a cynical elitist point of view.

It’s not about East or West, Black or White, Muslim or Christian, Gay or Straight, Male or Female, it’s about the “Have’s” and their control over the “Have Nots.”

So when Jon Stewart blames America’s problems on republicans or extreme racists he is steering his viewers, who trust him, away from the truth. For example, I doubt he would tell his viewers that the richest %1 of the country owns %24 of the nation’s wealth.

Rick Sanchez was fired for speaking the truth. Check out the interview with Pete Dominick below.
