Black Lives Matter Hashtag Activism Backfires on Black Record Label on Fox’s ‘Star’

There is a bit of fall-out from the police shooting in last week’s show that comes back in this week’s episode of Fox’s Star. The November 15 episode titled “Faking It” includes the Midtown record label digging out of bad publicity when a Black Lives Matter hashtag goes viral.

Midtown’s biggest star, Noah Brooks (Luke James) is dealing with the death of his best friend who was shot by a police officer in the parking lot of Midtown. Noah turns to social media to vent. On Twitter, he uses the hashtag #MidtownMatters and Midtown’s CEO Aryanna Floyd (Michael Michele) is facing pressure from her father to stop the public relations disaster.

Charles Floyd (Richard Roundtree) explains to Aryanna that the hashtag infers to the folks on black Twitter that black lives don’t matter at the Midtown record label. Aryanna points out that of course black lives matter – “We make R & B music.” She is reluctant to deliver a statement to the press for fear of fanning the flames of the bad publicity the shooting brought to her business. Charles then reminds her that his reputation is on the line (he gave the company over to her) and that he was an original social justice warrior.

Charles: You need to shut this down. Noah’s hashtag infers that black lives don’t matter to Midtown.

Aryanna: R & B music– of course black lives matter.

Charles: I marched with King. I stumped for Obama. You’re just gonna sit on this damn story? As head of Midtown, you’ve got to make a formal announcement.

Aryanna: You know how hard it is to build a company.

Charles: Everything that happens to your label happens to my name. Speak up, girl. You better speak up and do it damn quick!

Aryanna asks Noah to recant on the hashtag but he refuses. Then she lowers the boom. She tells him that with the Atlanta Showcase coming up, all eyes will be on her talent. She reminds him that she needs to know that her label’s artists are not working against the label

By the end of the episode, Aryanna and Noah have worked things out. Aryanna delivers a statement to the press gathered outside on company property, just as her father demanded.

This show never fails to promote a rallying cry for Black Lives Matter, even if they have to use a silly hashtag to do it. What would Dr. King think about that?

New Showtime Series ‘SMILF’ Lives Down to Every Expectation in Premiere

I had very low expectations of SMILF, and the November 5 premiere of Showtime’s new comedy, titled “A Box of Dunkies and Two Squirts of Maple Syrup,” lived down to every one of them. In only 30 minutes, the show fit in more crass content than most shows do in years on the air. Since there was no real theme to said content, aside from being gratuitous, I think it’s best to introduce you to this show simply by walking you through the first episode. 

As for the name, it’s the more-common slang acronym MILF (Mother I’d Like to F…), with the word “single” in front of it. So, we’re off to a classy start. Speaking of which, the show opens with the main character Bridget (Frankie Shaw) impressing a group of men with her basketball skills and the song playing over this scene features the lyrics “Hey, bitch, wait til you see my dick.” First impressions count, and this is what they chose. One of the men from the basketball court starts to flirt with Bridget until her baby son Larry wakes up and he realizes she’s a mom. He then not-so-subtly blows her off. Then we really get into the episode. 

The first real scene of the show is little Larry’s bedtime routine. His newly-sober dad Rafi (Miguel Gomez), comes over every night to put Larry to bed and, on this particular night, Bridget “catches” him praying with his son. “Knock it off,” she tells him, “Come on, there’s no praying in this house.” A round of applause for this show taking three minutes to go after people of faith. Bridget tries to get Rafi to stay and hang out with her but, failing that, gets out her vibrator. So we get to watch that. Not enough? We see her fantasizing about the guy from the basketball court. And the other guys from the basketball court. At once. 

In the morning, Bridget drops Larry off at her mom’s (Rosie O’Donnell) house, then heads to the doctor for a check up. It would appear that her health clinic is Planned Parenthood or another abortion clinic, because there’s a man outside with a sign who is telling people, “Pray for your baby.” I guess we’re supposed to be offended by that? Anyone who enjoyed this show has a moral compass that is pointing south when mine points north, so they probably were. This guy who values prayer and unborn children was pretty much the only thing to which I could relate on the entire show. At the clinic, Bridget is obsessed with the idea that her lady parts might not be the same now that she’s given birth (this will be relevant later, unfortunately). 

Her appointment over, Bridget heads to Ally’s (Connie Britton) house to tutor her daughter. As they look at her daughter’s book on art, one of the images shows some nudity, and Ally comments that this must be why her son is addicted to porn. In the next scene, we see that this porn-addicted son is only about 13. Ally has banned him from using electronics but, when she finds that he’s on her phone and is openly looking at pictures of “Hard Nipples Nelson,” she just takes her phone and sends him upstairs. Way to parent. 

Speaking of good parenting, Bridget puts Larry to bed that night, then runs down to the corner store for junk food while he’s sleeping. They don’t seem to live in the best area of Boston, and he’s only about a year old, so this is a very bad idea on a lot of levels. While Bridget is at the store, she runs into a guy she used to know, Jesse. So, when she gets home and is shoving junk food in her face, she texts him to ask a favor. She hasn’t has sex since Larry was born, so would he mind stopping by to help her out with that? This is a good time to mention that she and Larry share a bed. So, after she makes herself throw up the junk food she just ate, she covers Larry up, hoping he’ll stay still and sleep for an hour. 

When Jesse comes to her apartment, Bridget immediately tells him to undress, then gets on the bed and pretends to be a slave about to be raped by her master. Jesse finds that disturbing, as did I. Bridget doesn’t even want to kiss, she just wants Jesse to have sex with her and tell her if her vagina feels the same as it did before she had her baby. That’s the actual point of this bizarre booty call, and he’s ok with it until he looks over and sees little Larry’s foot sticking out from under his blanket right next to them on the same bed. He jumps up from the bed, and the audience gets full frontal male nudity. He dresses, but tells Bridget that everything seemed fine down there as he runs out the door.

At this point, we were 29 minutes into the episode, and I was thinking that everything objectionable had to be over. It wasn’t. Bridget is an failing actress whose only claim to fame was one episode of Law & Order and, in the last scene, we see her try out for a public service announcement. It’s about soldiers going through horrible things in war, then coming home to fight the battle against PTSD, which Bridget jokingly compares to being sexually abused by her father. That’s where the episode ends, while the song plays, “I want food and pussy. How come? It’s just the way God made me.” 

I certainly never expected Rosie O’Donnell to be the least objectionable part of the show. Then again, the season is young.

Disabled Man Lives On Disability Checks, Learns How Much Family Heirloom Is Worth

People have a tendency to collect things. Whether it’s items of sentimental value, little knick-knacks, or simply small things we find fascinating, humans can collect and store things to the point where they don’t even realize their true worth.

That’s what happened to a man named L.T. who collected a valuable treasure years ago and found out what it was worth right when he needed it most.

In a video uploaded to the Bird Plan YouTube channel, L.T. begins his incredible story, explaining that his foot had been crushed when he was involved in a car accident. As a result of the crash, he suffered a metatarsal pressure ulcer which ultimately caused a deep infection and resulted in him losing his foot. L.T. explains that after this accident, he had financial difficulties, only receiving a small, $800 disability check to help make ends meet.

One day, while L.T. was at home, he was watching an episode of Antiques Roadshow where an older man was getting a blanket appraised.

The blanket, described by the television appraiser as a “first-phase Navajo Chief blanket”, was said to be worth an extraordinary $350,000 to $500,000.

L.T., who owned a very similar blanket, was in complete shock.

“[The blanket] looks just like it,” he explained. “I’m holding it up, holding it up to the TV. But I never thought mine would be worth anything close to that. I mean, maybe it might be worth $10,000, $15,000.”

According to PBS, the Navajo native tribe began making its own wool in the mid-17th century. As this wool industry progressed, the Navajo eventually became one of the most skilled weavers of the time, even surpassing the famous Spanish and Pueblo craftsmen. The Navajo’s tight blankets were weaved so tightly they were “practically waterproof”, and they became known as “Chief blankets” as a result of their extravagant price.

An expert in Navajo weavings explains to PBS that in 1860, “Guys are making $5 a week if they’re lucky, about half that if they’re blue collar.” The price of a Navajo blanket in that time? Anywhere between $100 and $150 dollars. “First-phase” blankets are the earliest style of Navajo Chief blankets and are easily identified by their simple, striped design. According to experts, the value of first-phase blankets is a result of their rarity—less than 50 have survived the trials of time.

Despite the value of authentic Navajo Chief blankets, not even auctioneers could have guessed that L.T’s first-phase Navajo blanket would sell for OVER ONE MILLION DOLLARS, making his a rags-to-riches story of a lifetime.

Re: Erekat’s ‘historic compromise’ has cost the Palestinians land and lives

Just days after Hamas welcomed Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah to Gaza in the name of internal reconciliation, PLO Secretary General Saeb Erekat expounded upon the political commitment to fulfil “all of its obligations under signed agreements with Israel.” If Palestine continues to be defined through such blunders, which constitute the preferred option of the international community, Palestinian identity and resistance will suffer irreparable setbacks, particularly as Hamas has, out of necessity, agreed to Mahmoud Abbas’s demands.

In a statement published by Wafa news agency, Erekat recalled the Palestinian Liberation Organisation’s recognition of Israel in 1993: “This historic compromise is evidence of our commitment to achieving a genuine and lasting peace with Israel.” The statement refers to the two-state compromise and its purportedly independent Palestinian state, while admitting that Israel has continued its colonial expansion over Palestinian territory. Erekat also condemned the international community’s attempts “to equate between the occupied and the occupied,” calling for proper discernment to indicate Israel’s violation of Palestinian rights.

The veteran official ignores important details and analysis, mostly with regard to differentiation. There is no indication that the PA is seeking to further the Palestinian narrative internationally. So far, and the trend is set to continue, promoting Israel’s security on an equal footing with that of achieving a Palestinian state has not only embellished official speeches but also, on the ground, created the space for mutating violence to take place against Palestinian civilians. If Erekat wishes for a distinction between “the occupied and the occupied,” the PA should also refrain from amalgamating Israel’s alleged security concerns with the concept of a Palestinian state. Instead, it should be asserted that security concerns form part of the colonial project and therefore are part of the process which ensures the eradication of even a hypothetical Palestinian state, let alone its manifestation.

Read: Palestinian reconciliation essential to counter Judaisation of Jerusalem

However, the lack of distinction — of which both the PA and the international community are guilty — is the harvest of decades of compromise. When Erekat speaks of “historic compromise” and fulfilling obligations, it is vital to note whose obligations the PA has been consistently fulfilling. Since he and the UN have eliminated the fact that international law allows the colonised population to use any and all means to achieve liberation, the PA has achieved a historic compromise that serves the colonial project. This compromise, which Erekat defines as recognition of Israel, promotes oblivion with regard to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine upon which Israel was founded. It does not prioritise the Palestinian right of return, preferring instead to relegate it to a cloistered memory and, as a result, refusing to integrate this right within the context of land reclamation.

As a result of “historic compromise”, Palestinians have lost territory and lives, and wasted years incarcerated in Israeli jails. Their supposed leaders, meanwhile, continue to safeguard their positions by fluctuating between claims, mainly lending support to Israeli demands and seeking diluted recognition of demands which are conditioned by impositions beneficial to the occupying power.

Neither scenario bodes well for Palestinians, which creates a greater urgency to safeguard what is left of Palestine. The PA’s lack of credibility among ordinary Palestinians has been confirmed by Erekat’s recent statement. With reconciliation topping the current agenda, it is hoped that Hamas can influence alternatives, rather than capitulate to the aggressive policies pursued by Abbas which have exacerbated the already horrendous conditions suffered by the Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

5 Nonsensical Ways We Complicate Our Lives (& How To Stop)







Next Story

For most of us, our lives are inherently complicated enough.

We work to provide for ourselves and loved ones, we maintain a social life with our friends and families, we handle hardship as it arises, and we do our best to nourish ourselves and sleep (somewhat) regularly along the way.

Despite this, we seem to love making things even more complicated than they already are. While we may not consciously intend to do so, our actions suggest otherwise, and that’s why I’ve put together this list of five nonsensical ways we love to further complicate our lives.

The purpose of this list is to bring these habits into your awareness, inspire you to change them, and ultimately, simplify your life as much as possible. Read the list or watch the video, the choice is yours!


1. We’re Afraid to Ask

How many times have you found yourself racking your brain to solve an issue for days, weeks, and months on end only to eventually find the solution in someone else’s advice? While turning to others may not always be the best available alternative, it’s amazing how many times a willingness to simply ask for help can expedite our journey.

While there may be some fear involved in the advice-seeking process, it’s our ego that truly drives this hesitation, as it only wants to continue working alone in hopes of attaining the satisfaction of solving it singlehandedly.

Suck up that desire for credit and instead focus on being an active learner who not only uses but stores the advice received for further use down the road.

2. We Spend Outside Our Means

I know that completely avoiding debt is not feasible for most of us in life, but we always have some degree of control over how much we owe.

We further complicate our lives when we choose to accrue more debt in the name of purchases that serve no purpose beyond helping us fit in or be perceived in a particular way. Rather than mindlessly punching in that credit card number on another online purchase, take a moment to assess the bigger picture reason why you feel inclined to buy.

Is what you’re about to buy actually necessary? If not, don’t further extend that ridiculous timeframe your credit card statement outlines as the point at which you’ll be debt free through minimum monthly payments.

3. We’re Driven by Instant Gratification

We know what’s best for us long-term, yet we give in to the immediacy of the reward that comes from choosing otherwise. There is no area of our lives that this tends to be more apparent than in our diet.

Rather than basing our meal selections off of what we know will nourish our body best, we let our tastebuds decide, opting for the choices that come with the immediate serving of a craving being met.

The major downside to living a life led by immediate gratification is that it tends to complicate things long-term by creating situations and circumstances that would have been completely avoidable had we applied a bigger picture approach.

4. We Complain for Sympathy

Nobody likes a complainer, yet we all seem to love complaining.

Don’t believe this to be true of you? Think for a second of how many people you tell every unfortunate circumstance you go through to. Chances are it’s substantially higher than you’d think, and each of these people is tangible proof that you love complaining.

The main incentive to complaining is that it offers sympathy. While that may be nice in the moment (if it’s genuine, which it often isn’t), it’s certainly not worth the complications that tend to come from holding onto and reliving something that happened in the past.

5. You’re Reactive Rather Than Proactive

This one is undoubtedly the most self-explanatory.

The more proactive you are, the less likely you are to have to deal with challenging situations that complicate your life. The more reactive you are, the more likely you are to have complications, since you are openly inviting them.

Whether it be in regards to your health, finances, relationships, or any other major facet of your life, choose to be proactive in taking care of it rather than waiting for shit to hit the fan.

Prepping saves lives: Life is hell in Puerto Rico as food, water remains “scarce” and power is nearly nonexistent

Image: Prepping saves lives: Life is hell in Puerto Rico as food, water remains “scarce” and power is nearly nonexistent

(Natural News)
If ever there was a real-life example of why being independently prepared to handle any long-term emergency or crisis, it’s Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week since Hurricane Maria ravaged the Caribbean Island nation, and while some help is arriving, “most food stores and restaurants remain closed,” The Associated Press reported, largely because the power grid was destroyed by the storm and remains in shambles. In fact, the only power on the island is coming from the few privately-owned generators and those brought in by the National Guard and the government.

Soon, even those will be out of commission because there is little available diesel fuel to power them.

“There is no water and practically no food,” said Mercedes Caro in an interview with the AP, shaking her head in frustration as she exited a local food store with only a loaf of white bread, cheese, and some bananas. “Not even spaghetti.”

The AP noted further:

Maria Perez waited outside a Pueblo supermarket in a nearby part of San Juan, hoping to buy some coffee, sugar and maybe a little meat to cook with a gas stove that has enough propane for about a week more. “We are in a crisis,” she said. “Puerto Rico is destroyed.”

Many are grateful for the fact that even a few stores are open, considering that almost no one has power and more than half the island’s 3.3 million residents don’t have water.

In the meantime, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said that the Coast Guard and other emergency crews have managed to clear some ports so they can once again begin accepting cargo ships. With regular arrivals and more ports cleared, the food-and-water (and medicinal) situation in Puerto Rico will slowly but surely being to improve.

But that won’t happen overnight. And in the meantime, there will be more suffering as people who were unprepared for a disaster of this magnitude find a way to deal with it.

Understand that it’s not just fear of being without food and water that is weighing on residents’ minds. The sheer desperation residents are feeling after seeing their entire island virtually destroyed over a period of just a few hours is mentally taxing and difficult to fathom. It’s going to wear on people both physically and mentally. It will lead some to violence, without a doubt, as their frustrations and desperation reach a boiling point.

“I tell my husband it’s like camping,” said Therese Casper, as she waited in line with several dozen others for a Walmart store to open. “It’s ‘Survivor Puerto Rico,’” she continued, a reference to a popular reality TV series. “It’s not what we bargained for.”

And that’s the problem. (Related: Hurricane Maria just wiped out ALL power on the entire island of Puerto Rico … still think prepping is a waste of time?)

Others admitted that all they are doing is surviving. “I have what I need,” said Ruth Calderon, a retired person.

Those who are able to get a few items here and there are actually the lucky ones. There are others who are worse off. During her interview with the AP, Caro began to cry, saying she is concerned about hour four grandchildren in Rincon, a western town that has mostly been cut off from any aid, as well as the rest of the world.

“Not knowing is so hard,” she said.

It may seem unfathomable to have to deal with a disaster of this magnitude, and that’s understandable. No one wants to believe that their lives can be so totally disrupted. But that’s what prepping is really all about: These kinds of disasters.

It’s one thing to “be prepared” to handle a few days without electricity due to a storm. It’s quite another to live in a zone of total destruction for weeks and even months on end.

But the latter is what “prepping” is for: To be able to live through total and complete disaster without having to rely on anyone else for your survival.

The Lack of a Border Wall Is Costing Americans Their Jobs and Even Their Lives

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

The great purveyor of political fiction, The New York Times, published an article titled “Immigrants Aren’t Taking Americans’ Jobs, New Study Finds.” Conversely, The Washington Times quoted a study which stated that iillegal immigration should be causing great concern for native-born American. The post was titled Mass Immigration Costs Government $296 Billion a Year, Depresses Wages.” In the study, it was determined that immigrants obtain between $43 billion and nearly $300 billion more in government benefits and support than they pay in taxes based on 2012 dollar calculations. Who is correct?

IF one were to read the economic and demographic reports from either the federal government or the mainstream media (eg CNN), they would have America believe that there are only 11 million illegal aliens inside of the United States. In 1986, the federal government admitted that there were only 11 million immigrants inside the United States. In 2016, the last year Obama was in office, the government stated that there were only 11 million illegal immigrants inside the United States. Only a moron would believe that for the past 30 years, there has not been a net gain in illegal immigration. This is complete fiction and anyone with any degree of common sense can see right through these phony statistics designed to minimize the illegal immigration problem which costs our country more than $113 billion a year according President Trump who stated the following:

“And this is what we get. For the money we are going to spend on illegal immigration over the next 10 years, we could provide 1 million at-risk students with a school voucher, which so many people are wanting.”

Several studies contradict the federal government’s position that there are only 11 million illegal immigrants residing within the United States including a new study from The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. The study, a 500-page report that gathered statistics from more than a dozen individual economists, professors and immigration-minded specialists found that the “…report clearly states that the America’s immigrant population climbed by more than 70% between 1995 and 2014, when it stood at 42.3 million, accounting for roughly 13% of America’s total population. We could justify the government’s immigration data as saying “Government figures lie, and liars use government figures”.

The sheer volume of illegal immigration clearly demonstrates that illegal immigration creates employment and wage problems for American citizens.

America has been mired in growing income inequality since 2008 as widespread economic stagnation plus the continued lack of adequate healthcare during the same time period. However, there is a new corresponding concern. A new federal report reveals a surging suicide rate among the U.S. population over the last three decades and rate has skyrocketed since 2008.

A division of the CDC, the National Center for Health Statistics published statistics in a new report that concluded that after a statistical plateau in the 1990’s, the suicide rate in the U.S. dhas exponentially increased from 1999 to 2014, with the largest increase taking place after 2008. Suicide remains the 10th leading cause of death in the country.

Sally Curtain, a statistician with CDC, told PBS Newshour, “It’s a broad-based increase in suicide…” The key findings of the report concluded:

  • “From 1999 through 2014, the age-adjusted suicide rate in the United States increased 24%, from 10.5 to 13.0 per 100,000 population, with the pace of increase greater after 2006.
  • Suicide rates increased from 1999 through 2014 for both males and females and for all ages 10–74.
  • The percent increase in suicide rates for females was greatest for those aged 10–14, and for males, those aged 45–64.
  • The most frequent suicide method in 2014 for males involved the use of firearms (55.4%), while poisoning was the most frequent method for females (34.1%).”

According to the Guardian, “This new suicide data underpins recent studies that showed a decline in life expectancy among middle-aged, white Americans – especially women. Such studies attributed the increasing death rate to drug and alcohol misuse, as well as suicide.”

The American JournAd of Preventive Medicine published statistics that demonstrated suicide rates among middle-aged Americans had risen dramatically since 1999, including the same drastic increase since 2007 and this is when the finnancial crisis peaked following the bottom falling out of the economy.

And why are Americans killing themselves in record numbers? The reasons are primarily due to economic factors. And what is one of the primary contributors to our current economic status? It is illegal immigration.

The Net Effect of This Perfect Storm

The global elite are hell-bent on lowering their labor costs. Through illegal free trade agreements, millions of American jobs have been shipped out of the country. This phenomenon began in the early 1990’s. Also, in the 1990’s this article has demonstrated that illegal immigration has spiked and resulted in less available jobs and a declining wage structure. And most tragically, we have seen a corresponding spike in suicide in response to the econmic woes. And at the heart of the suicide spike is the illegal immigration issue.

I am not proposing mass deportation of illegal aliens, unless they have committed serious felonies. However, we need to go to a restricted and merit based system of immigration similar to Canada’s. It is imperative that we stop the bleeding. And we need to do it now. Mr. President, build the wall.

Mexico earthquake: rescue dog who has saved 52 lives in her career searches for more victims

Having already save 52 lives during her career, Frida is plunging back into the rubble to find more people.

The six-year-old labrador has been deployed at disasters across Central and North America,  participating in rescue missions in Haiti, Ecuador and Honduras.

Her bravery and resourcefulness has even earned the praise of Mexico’s president, Enrique Pena Nieto, who took to Twitter to praise the labrador.

“This is Frida,” he wrote. “She belongs to SEMAR and has helped save 52 lives in various natural disasters at national and international levels.”

Wearing goggles, a khaki padded waistcoat and all-terrain boots, Frida was back in action weeks after saving 12 victims from an earlier  Mexican quake.

At least 273 people have been killed as a result of the 7.1 earthquake which struck the country on Tuesday.

Others are still buried under the rubble and their hopes of survival rest on rescue dogs like Frida.

Frida’s exploits have been hailed on social media. There are even cartoons of Frida and some have suggested she should run for office.
