[video] Trump, Clinton aides clash over use of “White Supremacists” in Presidential Campaign

The irony of this conversation kills me. I say they all are guilty of white supremacist ideology. The fact that Hillary’s camp is trying to marginalize white supremacists to be this little group of people who are active on the Breitbart website is a joke. With that being said the lesser of two evils would of better served this country.

Four weeks after the election, tensions between top operatives at the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns erupted during a Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics discussion that was intended to record history by drawing out the internal deliberations of both campaigns.

[video] Did the Simpsons predict Donald Trump becoming President?

Astonishingly this video was posted back in Aug 29, 2015. There are bunch of theories on whether or not Matt Groening and his crew predicted a Trump Presidency and they have spoken out to set the record straight.

Earlier this year Simpsons writer Dan Greaney ex­­plained why they had “predicted” a Trump presidency back in 2000 .

“It was a warning to America,” he said. “That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was consistent with the vision of America going insane.

“What we needed was for Lisa to have problems beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that’s why we had Trump be president before her.”

 

Show creator Matt Groening said last month: “Back in 2000 Trump was, of course, the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time and that’s still true. It’s beyond satire.”

Trump was mocked in another episode of The Simpsons in 2015, aired after he announced he was running for president. Trumptastic Voy­­age had him on an escalator with Homer Simpson – mimicking the real entrance he made to announce his candidacy with wife Melania.

Trump was later accused of hiring actors to cheer for him. So The Simpsons showed onlookers holding PAID signs among VOTE placards. Homer is seen pondering Trump’s “gravity-defying comb-over” and wondering: “If I touch it, will it heal my baldness?”

Black Panther Elaine Brown Blasts Black Lives Matter Movement

screen-shot-2016-10-21-at-11-17-26-am

Elaine Brown has serious problems with the BLM movement, questionable ties to the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton and has expressed so in an interview with Spiked..

I don’t know what Black Lives Matter does, so I can’t tell you how it compares to what the Black Panther Party was. I know what the BPP was. I know the lives we lost, the struggle we put into place, the efforts we made, the assaults on us by the police and government – I know all that. I don’t know what Black Lives Matter does. So if you can tell me, I’ll give you my thoughts.’

 

So says Elaine Brown, activist, singer and former chairwoman of the Black Panther Party, talking to me from her home in Oakland, California. She doesn’t like my question. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party, a revolutionary, socialist, black-power organisation formed in Oakland by then college students Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. And, as journalists scrabble to pen pieces about ‘what’s changed’, cack-handed comparisons abound.
I ask Brown about Black Lives Matter, the movement that erupted in the wake of the shooting of Mike Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. This nebulous hashtag-come-protest movement has been compared – both by its supporters and detractors – with the BPP; it’s either hailed as a continuation of the struggle or slammed as a resurgence in ‘divisive’, ‘militant’ black nationalism. Talking to Brown it becomes clear that both sides give BLM too much credit.

DJ Envy is an agent of the white supremacist corporate power structure by Byron Crawford

So DJ Envy wants to get guns off the street but has said nothing about getting guns outta Hip Hop.😐

Yesterday, in one of the sadder non-Peter Rosenberg-related moments in the history of black radio, DJ Envy of Power 105’s the Breakfast Club tried to make a case for stop and frisk—this while more or less unarmed black men are still being shot and killed by the police on the reg.

You can tell these remarks weren’t off the cuff, because Envy, Charlamagne tha God, et al. were citing statistics that they couldn’t have just pulled out of their asses. Like the fact that in the last year of stop and frisk NYPD confiscated 890 illegal guns. Since they’ve gotten rid of stop and frisk, they’ve only found like 200. But as Angela Yee pointed out, it’s not like there’s been a huge increase in shootings.

Yee and Charlamagne took the opposite position, that stop and frisk served no purpose other than to funnel more and more black men into the prison-industrial complex, but it was obvious they were all just reading from a script and that any of them could have argued either side of the issue, as the TIs saw fit.

Speaking of which, whoever came up with this bit may have felt it was best that Envy argue in favor of stop and frisk because he’s a known cornball brother and lightskinted to the point where 5-0 might not bother harassing him, thinking he’s a cracka-ass cracka.

Charlamagne tha God, on the other hand, is still a shade darker than a brown paper bag, thus precluding him from entrance to some HBCUs, despite having undergone skin-bleaching treatments.

[video] President Obama: Congress’ Veto Override Of 9/11 Lawsuits Bill Is ‘A Mistake’

We been in the bed with the Saudis forever. Hopefully this will lead to some real information as to who was really behind the attacks on 9/11.

The House and Senate voted to override President Obama’s veto of JASTA, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which will allow 9/11 victims and families to sue Saudi Arabia for the 2001 terror attacks. Obama criticized the lawmakers, saying the bill’s passage could expose U.S. troops and diplomats to legal retaliation overseas. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports for TODAY from the White House.

[video] Donald Trump to Black Voters: “What The Hell Do You Have To Lose?”

Donald Trump speaks hard truths when it comes to the state of the black community and what transpired under the Clinton administrations. #MassIncarceration

Addressing black people, this is exactly what he said: What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump? What do you have to lose? I’ll say it again: What do you have to lose? You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?

[video] Black Lives Matter Activist Interrupts and questions Hillary Clinton about Mass Incarceration

This young lady boldly addresses Hillary Clinton’s connection to mass incarceration of black men through the policy, initiatives, and laws created by her husband Bill Clinton.

[video] Hillary Clinton says Al-Jazeera is ‘Real News’

Mainstream media has been failing us for decades. The Glenn Becks, Bill O’ Reillys, and Lou Dobbs are basically talking head entertainers that profit off of decisiveness and polarizing the country. Not just Fox either, they all at sometime or another have manipulated stories to their benefit. Surprised Hillary said this and I have to agree with her, though she has benefited the most from this corrupt system.
Vodpod videos no longer available. 


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that Al Jazeera is gaining more prominence in the U.S. because it offers “real news”–something she said American media were falling far short of doing.

Would love to hear the conversations these two have. So I have been seeing rumors that Hillary will wait till 2016 to run for President.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT FROM ‘RENEGADE’: Obama On Clinton Pick: “I’m Not Begging Her To Take This Job”

via HuffPost

In an exclusive excerpt from Newsweek Senior White House correspondent Richard Wolffe’s new book, “Renegade: The Making of a President,” Wolffe details the internal debates within the Obama camp over whether to select Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.RENEGADE-

Wolffe will discuss his new book on NBC’s“Today” show on Monday morning.

Of all his transition choices, none was easier to make, or more complex to execute, than Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. Obama had long wanted his former rival on his team, no matter what his friends and aides said about her aggressive campaign… His staff opposed the idea for the most part, arguing that Clinton would never be truly loyal. But Obama was willing to leave the primaries behind, including his own strong feelings at the time. “I don’t hold grudges,” he told his aides. “I don’t worry about the past. I’m concerned about what happens now. If she can help me and Bill Clinton isn’t too much of a liability, we should seriously look at this.” …

Obama was under no illusion about the legacy of the long primary season. During one transition meeting, Obama said he wanted to offer Clinton the diplomatic job. “I’m really interested in pursuing this, but I know she has some hard feelings coming out of this campaign.” Emanuel and John Podesta, the former Clinton official who ran the transition, assured Obama that she was over those hard feelings now. Obama smiled and said, “Believe me. She’s not over it yet.”

His decision to offer her the job of secretary of state came surprisingly early. Well before the end of the primaries, when his staff and friends still felt hostile to her, Obama decided that Clinton possessed the qualities to carry his diplomacy to the rest of the world. “We actually thought during the primary, when we were pretty sure we were going to win, that she could end up being a very effective secretary of state,” he told me later. “I felt that she was disciplined, that she was precise, that she was smart as a whip, and that she would present a really strong image to the world…I had that mapped out.” Continue reading

Jewish Leaders Blast Clinton Over Israel Criticism

In a swift about face from her views as New York’s senator, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now hammering Israel over its treatment of Palestinians in Gaza. hillary-clinton-pointing2

As First Lady, Clinton raised eyebrows when she kissed Suha Arafat.

Since she was then seeking a Senate seat the resulting brouhaha caused her to “re-think” her positions.

“I’m a very strong supporter of Israel,” Clinton said back in February 2000.

On Thursday, as Secretary of State she had yet another about face in the form of angry messages demanding Israel speed up aid to Gaza. Jewish leaders are furious.

“I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state,” said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and member of the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council.

“I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York,” Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, said. “Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is.”

Clinton’s decision to hammer Israel comes as the Clintons and President Barack Obama are planning to give the Palestinians $900 million toward the rebuilding of Gaza in the wake of the Israeli offensive that was sparked by Hamas rocket fire.

“We are working across the government to see what our approach will be,” Clinton said.

“I don’t believe that we should be in a position at this point to do anything to strengthen Hamas,” Zuckerman said. “We surely know what Hamas stands for as I say they are the forward battalions of Iran.” Continue reading

Obama Gathering a Flock of Hawks to Oversee U.S. Foreign Policy

In disc golf, there’s a shot known as “an Obama” — it’s a drive that you expect to veer to the left but keeps hooking right. In no other area has this metaphor been truer than Barack Obama’s foreign policy and national security appointments. For a man who was elected in part on the promise to not just end the war in Iraq but to “end the mindset that got us into war in the first place,” it’s profoundly disappointing that a majority of his key appointments — Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, Dennis Blair, Janet Napolitano, Richard Holbrooke and Jim Jones, among others — have been among those who represent that very mindset.

As president, Obama is ultimately the one in charge, so judgment should not be based upon his appointments alone. Indeed, some of his early decisions regarding foreign policy and national security – such as ordering the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay, initiating the necessary steps for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, and ending the “global gag rule” on funding for international family-planning programs – have been quite positive. But it’s still significant that the majority of people appointed to key foreign policy positions, like those in comparable positions in the Bush administration, appear to be more committed to U.S. hegemony than the right of self-determination, human rights and international law.

Supporters of Wars of Conquest Though far from the only issue of concern, it is the fact that the majority of Obama’s appointees to these key positions were supporters of the invasion of Iraq that is perhaps the most alarming. Obama’s defenders claim that what is most important in these appointments is not their positions on a particular issue, but their overall competence. Unfortunately, this argument ignores the reality that anybody who actually believed that invading Iraq was a good idea amply demonstrated that they’re unqualified to hold any post dealing with foreign and military policy. It was not simply a matter of misjudgment. Those who supported the war demonstrated a dismissive attitude toward fundamental principles of international law, and disdain for the United Nations Charter and international treaties which prohibit aggressive war.
