Farrakhan Ethers Mike Wallace (Throwback)

Dayum, I ran into this clip over at Playahata.com while doing some research of Rev. Wright. Min. Louis Farrakhan tore CBS’ Mike Wallace a new one in regards to America’s “holier than thou” position it likes to take on when talking about “foriegn” aggressors. Classic. During a time when debate is so unbalanced on network TV you are almost begging for one of these stations to get Farrakhan and Rev. Wright in the same room with Bill O’ Reilly and Sean Hannity. Pay per view anyone?

Man Accused Of Killing Tribesmen With Dirt Virus

amazon.jpg

A British man is being accused of causing a flu epidemic in a remote Amazonian tribe that he illegally infiltrated. On behalf of the Discovery Channel’s World Lost Tribe series, Matt Currington sought out the Matsigenka people who were tucked away in the Cumerjali area of south-eastern Peru. Now he is being blamed for four deaths that are being attributed to the flu virus linked to Currington. A similar epidemic is reportedly responsible for the wholesale slaughter of indigenous American tribes once they came into contact with Columbus and his forebearers back in the day.

A representative of indigenous tribes said: “They were warned not to go upstream, but were unhappy with the tribe in Yomybato – the village they were permitted to visit – as the Indians appeared too westernised. So, in searching for a more stereotypical tribe, they came into contact with a vulnerable community. CLICK HERE for full details on this story.

Well it seems that Remy Ma has been convicted by the jury and faces and hell of a long time in the slammer.

According to SOHH, who said their reporters were present in the courtroom when the verdict was handed down, Remy was caught off guard by the outcome.

Her lawyer, Ivan Fisher said, “Remy didn’t expect this…she didn’t tell her eight-year old son, who she left this morning [she would not be returning home].”

Mike Vick is headed for the doghouse, I mean courthouse on state charges stemming from his dog fighting debacle at the end of June. His trail date was originally set for April 2 but citing that Vick plus two co-defendants are serving federal time dispersed throughout the US in federal lockup the state needed additional time to put the feds on notice so they can deliver the prisoner. The State of Virginia will have to pay to transport Vick from Leavenworth Kansas where he is serving out his 23-month sentence for dogfighting conspiracy.

Vick is scheduled to be released next year, on July 20. One of his co-defendants, Tony Taylor was released last Thursday after serving two months for cooperating with the feds. CLICK HERE for more Mike Vick news.

America is on sale! The bargain hunting has begun and struggling Ford motor company has just agreed to sell their Jaguar car division and their Land Rover motoring company to an Indian conglomerate, the Tata Group. These mega companies have been taking advantage of a weakening dollar and a competitive market and snatching up American institutions and well developed brands like Jaguar and Land Rover. Ford managed to offload the companies for $2.3 Billion, half of what it paid for them. Now the Tata Group has the distinction of selling the world’s most inexpensive vehicle, the Nano, a $2,500 hatchback and having some of the most luxurious vehicles in its portfolio.

Chris Rock -“Bush Fucked Up So Bad” RollingStone Excerpts

Source : Rolling Stone Magazine

chris_rock-_1.jpg

Found this funny article over at Rollingstone with none other than Chris Rock and he is primed and ready to talk about everything including this very intense presidential campaign.

For instance: “Bush has fucked up so bad,”that he’s made it hard for a white man to run for president. ‘Gimme anything but another white man, please! Black man, white woman, giraffe, anything!’

A white man’s had that job for hundreds of years — and one guy fucked it up for all of ya!” And: “Each candidate tells you how humble they are. No, you’re not humble! Do you know how big your ego has to be to say you wanna be president of the United States? Do you know how much Puff Daddy juice you have to drink? How many Kanye injections you have to take?”

LA Times Tupac Story Is Debunked By The Smoking Gun

sabatino.jpg

Thanks to investigative work done by The Smoking Gun website it has been determined that the Los Angeles Times has been completely duped in their reporting last week about a Mafia-linked plot to have Tupac assassinated outside of Manhattan’s Quad Studio. The plot supposedly hatched by James Sabatino, a career con-artist and currently an inmate at Allenwood Federal Correctional Facility has been exposed to be a fabrication skillfully executed by the “attention-seeking” Sabatino whose claims seem to have fallen flat on their face.

Within a weeks worth of investigation The Smoking Gun has been able to debunk the fabrication that the LA Times, the country’s fourth largest newspaper ran on the front of their paper (website edition) discrediting reporter Chuck Philips, who has been duped on more than one occasion by unreliable informants. Apparently the court documents cited by the LA Times were forged documents, copies of “302’s” made by Sabatino from federal prison. I highly recommend that you CLICK HERE to read the rest of this explosive rebuttal of the story that has created a firestorm globally, linked Puff and BIG to the shooting of their nemesis Tupac Shakur.

Dem Candidates Have Global Appeal

global-appeal.gif

The race for the presidency of the U.S. isn’t restricted to the shores of the continental United States. Both democratic candidates have a global appeal and the rest of the world has a vested interest in the outcome of this Presidential election. Obama favors well in Africa, Europe and the Mid East. On the strength of Bill Clinton’s favorable trade policies, Mexico and China are hoping it runs in the family and they are cheerleading for Hillary to take the title. Skpeticism is abound in pockets around the Middle East where even though they are rooting for Obama they doubt that America is ready to take direction from a man with Hussein as his middle name. The Wall Street Journal story said it best with this quote:

The world’s sole superpower has such an impact on the globe that, as a Belgian newspaper recently suggested, the rest of the world may feel it should be allowed to vote, too.

Wendy William’s Fomer Aide Says Hubby Sexually Abusive

wedyhub.jpg

Talk about the height of hypocrisy! Nicole Spence, a former aide to radio/TV personality Wendy Williams is dishing the dirt and saying that Williams husband Kevin Hunter repeatedly beat Wendy and made unwanted sexual advances on the aide. Of course Williams shot down the accusations by replying to the New York Post that “this b*tch is out of her mind.” Spence has formally filed a complaint with the Equal Opportunity Commission on Monday naming both William’s and Inner City Broadcasting, the broadcasting company that owns the station she works for, in the complaint. Spence said the abuse of the tough-talking Williams was perpetrated in front of a viewing audience on more than one occassion. This is one of her accounts:

“In one instance, Mr. Hunter stormed into the studio, demanded that other employees leave and openly physically abused Ms. Williams, pinning her against the wall with his hand around her neck, choking her while repeatedly pounding his fist into the wall directly by her head.”

Jackson Clan on the Brink Of Financial Ruin

jakson-five.jpg

Bad times have befallen the Jackson Clan. Once owners of a fortune that the “FDIC didn’t care to insure” the Jackson Clan has managed to squander their wealth away on bad investments and unrealized dreams of reuniting with Michael and creating a World Tour for his brothers, the Jackson Five, that would restore some much needed financial relief. Nowadays the brothers are spread about, one stocking product at a grocery store (Marlon) and the other changing tires for a living (Randy). The spectacular fall was said to be aided and abetted by Michael who supposedly “hates his famiy.” Here is an account of where each member is at fiscally these days. Damn, who would have ever thought we’d see this in our lifetime.

Joseph Jackson, 79 and Katherine Jackson, 77

Dad hustles various girl groups in Las Vegas. Mom is still a stay-at-home housewife and the only family member in contact with Michael. Both have previously filed for bankruptcy

South Park Online For Free

south-park.jpg
The creators of South Park have made every episode available for free via their website.

Gizmodo reports that :
the South Park guys are streaming every single South Park episode in full at their official site, South Park Studios. What they get right: Streams are fast and vid quality is solid; every episode, from first to most recent is available (with one exception); and newer ones are uncensored. Yep, you actually get to hear your favorite childrens scream “What the fuck is going on?” in the Britney ep. Major point of suck: ads.

I can see these guys probably adding some unseen stuff on the site to give fans some added bonuses. Wonder how long it will take for people to rip the episodes and put them on Bittorrent. Click here for full story

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!!

Remy Ma trial is coming to a close and her lawyer has stated that this was all an accident and that the victim’s testimony supports that. Her defense lawyer hopes the jury will believe this scenario and find her not guilty of first-degree assault amongst other charges. This verdict in this case is one that will definetly resonate in the hip hop community,due to the fact that this will be the third prominent female star(Lil kim & Foxy Brown) that would have been convicted and sent to jail. In a genre that is already starved for female stars this doesn’t look good. More of the story at Sohh
