“Anything Possible,” Obama Tells Joyous Crowd from Steps of Lincoln Memorial

WASHINGTON (AP) – Two days from the White House, President-elect Barack Obama joined a vast throng Sunday at a joyous pre-inauguration celebration staged among marble monuments to past heroes. “Anything is possible in America,” declared the man who will confront economic crisis and two wars when he takes office.

“Despite the enormity of the task that lies ahead, I stand here today as hopeful as ever that the United States of America will endure – that it will prevail, that the dream of our founders will live on in our time,” the president-elect said at the conclusion of a musical extravaganza that featured U2, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen and a host of other stars.

Obama and his family held the seats of honor at the event, and a crowd of tens of thousands spilled from the base of the Lincoln Memorial toward the Washington Monument several blocks away in the cold, gray afternoon of mid-January.

It was the high point of a full day of pre-inaugural events that included a wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery and a morning church service where children recalled the life of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.Obama Inauguration

Obama’s motorcade drew ever-larger crowds as the day wore on and he and his wife, Michelle, and their children Sasha and Malia crisscrossed the city.

“Just another typical Sunday,” deadpanned the Rev. Derrick Harkins, pastor at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, where the soon-to-be first family prayed.

Of course it was anything but – a run-up, in fact, to the first inauguration of an African-American president in a nation founded by slave-owners.

Obama’s aides said he was readying an inaugural address that would stress twin themes of responsibility and accountability, and they predicted he would devote his first week in office to economic recovery, setting in motion a 16-month troop withdrawal from Iraq and decreeing a code of ethics for his administration.

4000 Dead Soldiers: A Mosaic Tribute

4000-dead-mosaic.jpg

After seeing this I was compelled to post for all you guys to see. This is one of the most creative pieces of art about this hideous war that has left too many dead on both sides. This mosaic art depicts the faces of Mccain and George Bush who sent these young men and women to war and still have time to laugh as more bodies pile up.

Kudos and props to the artist and hopefully these a-holes will be convicted of war crimes in the next administration. And of course bring Our Troops Home!!

Africa calls Bush “President King”

bush-in-africa.jpg 

In one of our most shocking blog post’s yet, our naive brothers and sisters in Africa have totally flipped their headress and annointed George Bush a  “President King” to rule forever . Though our brothers and sisters are all smiles in these staged photo ops, this is truly a sad story. I believe this shows the disconnect between American blacks and the homeland.

Do they not know about the rampant corruption and murderous regime of George Bush and his family?

I would like any of the people who read this blog to please chime in with some answers cause I am totally lost. As my partner P Moor would note, How ironic is it  that this is all happening during Black History Month?

Son of French Prez is Closet Producer

1340378964_m.jpg

In a scene straight out of CB4, it has just been confirmed that the son of anti-Hip Hop French President Nicolas Sarkozy is a closet producer.  The hardliner Sarkozy railed against  French rappers when he was Interior Minister, going as far to bringing cases against the group La Rumeur for their rants against police.  And just like the over eager politician in CB4, Sarkozy was a defender sanitized suburban living, which brought him into conflict with Hip Hop which has traditionally been the voice of the poor and oppressed.  His son, Pierre who goes by the rap name “Mosey” has crafted sounds for his group Da Crime Chantilly.  He even has credits listed for producing a song for David Banner.  Peep this hilarious exchange between Pierre and a rapper name Poison that he ended up producing for: 

“I have known him for five years,” “Poison” was quoted as saying. “I met him at a party. When I heard (who he was), I lost it, I called him. He told me: ‘Poison, I did not want to tell you, you would not have wanted to hang out with me’.”

Is Magic Biting Off More Than He Can Chew?

As the end draws near for Team Clinton in the heavily contested race for Democratic nominee for President, details are emerging about her celebrity support base.  As everyone in the world probably knows by now, Oprah Winfrey is throwing her weight behind Barack Obama while Hillary’s most notable cheerleader is none other than Magic Johnson.  What originally seemed like an honest endorsement now appears to be an about face for Johnson as it is revealed that initially he was riding for Obama first.  I know they say everyone has a price but in this case the stakes may have been a $750 million business deal.  You see, the Clintons number one supporter, Ron Burkle who made his billions in supermarkets (Pathmark) and even gave Diddy $50 mil for Sean John was putting together an investment group that were looking to pump $750 mil into the inner city and Johnson wanted in.  Well, I’m sure you can guess the rest.  Johnson switches his endorsement and becomes the counteractive negro everytime the Clinton’s snap their finger. Oprah puts together a fundraiser for Obama then Johnson counteracts with one for Clinton with fellow House Negroes Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy and Clarence Avant.  What should Black America do with these turncoats when they come back licking their chops after Obama hands Hillary her head?  To read the rest of this article CLICK HERE
