Arseino Hall Got Axed!

CBS Television announced the abrupt cancellation of Arsenio Hall's late night program.

You stand next to him, you're going down! The famous words of soon to be washed up celebrity Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson on the feud with Game (another soon to be washed up celebrity).

Well I guess when That Guy Who Helped Obama Win interviewed Arsenio Hall, it must have turned off a lot of his supporters. For you see, even with a great start, you can't survive if the ratings bar fails to move.

CBS Television announced the cancellation of The Arsenio Hall Show. After one season, the show which was distributed on many CW affiliates was given the ax. It failed to live up to the challenges of late night.

With David Letterman, Jimmy Fallion, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson leading the late night gig, Arsenio was supposed to be the return of the old guard.

CBS Television Production had previously announced Hall's syndicated show would be back for a second season, but faced the prospect of stations moving it to lesser time slots as ratings fell.

In a statement, Hall said he knew launching the show would be a challenge.

"I'm gratified for the year we've had and proud of the show we created," the actor and comedian added.

The show is in reruns and won't resume production, a show spokesman said. The last original episode aired May 21.

When Hall began his original series in 1989, he was seen as the cool alternative to Johnny Carson and "The Tonight Show" on NBC. Guests including sax playing-presidential candidate Bill Clinton helped push Hall into the spotlight.

By 1994, with increased competition from new "Tonight" host Jay Leno and CBS' David Letterman, Hall's ratings had slipped and the show ended.

When Hall returned last year, he was fighting for attention with even more programs, including ABC's Jimmy Kimmel and the Comedy Central lineup.

The cancellation of Hall's show returns the late-night talk show scene to almost uniformly white male hosts, with a few exceptions such as Tavis Smiley on PBS.

Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine sold Beats Audio to Apple. Jimmy Iovine will resign from Interscope.

As of today, Beats Audio is now part of the Apple.

In a historic move, Interscope CEO Jimmy Iovine and media mogul Dr. Dre will relinquish their role to join Apple for input on the next wave of creative products. This also means the end of an era for Iovine. He will leave the Interscope company he founded in the 1980s.

The announcement caps off weeks of speculation surrounding the deal, which will see Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre join Apple to play an unspecified role. Apple will pay $2.6 billion in cash and $400 million in equity that will vest over time, the company said. "I've always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple," music mogul Iovine said in a statement. "The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple's unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple's deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special.

John Janick will now take over the role as leader for Interscope. Iovine will step down from his chairmanship after the end of June.

Interscope, A&M and Geffen are part of the umbrella that Iovine had control over. The label talents included Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke, The Black Eye Peas, Chief Keef, Madonna and Kendrick Lamar.

The American Suicide Bomber!

Could we see  a mass causality attack carried out by an American suicide bomber?

This week closes out with the death of an American suicide bomber blowing himself up in Syria.

The individual known as Abu Hurayra al-Amriki (Hummad The American), was one of the many individuals who blow himself up in the country. U.S. Intelligence reports that this individual was born in the United States and live a portion of his life in Florida.

Now the American intelligence agencies are determined that this event will not happen here.

Again, the nice guy is the most dangerous individual in the world. People who are bullied, rejected and often rejected by others will become delusional and find outlets to channel their rage.

Some may invest their time into doing things like find outlets like social groups. Others would find firearms and plans of bring utter chaos to those who didn't even cross the "nice guy's" path.

Regardless of the race, gender, sexuality, nationality, political or economic standings, the mentally insane or a terrorist will disrupt or permanently shock those with this dangerous behavior. They don't care who lives are affected, it's a matter of showing the world they mean business.

CNN reports that the truck was loaded with munitions, then driven up a hillside in northern Syria. Moments later, there was a massive blast followed by cries of "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic, and the rattling of gunfire.

The suicide attacker in the bombing depicted in this online video was an American jihadi, radical Islamists claiming responsibility for the blast have said.

Late Thursday, two U.S. officials confirmed their boast.

The man called by the nom de guerre Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki was a U.S. citizen, who grew up in Florida and went to school there.

Neither official would disclose the bomber's real name. Investigators are interviewing family members.

Al-Amriki is among a group of Americans whom intelligence agents have been trying to keep tabs on since they went to Syria some months ago to join extremists in the fight against the Syrian government.

Even if he clearly did not act alone, it is the man identified as Abu Hurayra who has gotten a lot of attention on websites and social media venues tied to radical Islamists.

That includes a tweet by a man with the handle Abu Suleiman al-Muhajer, whose bio identifies him as belonging to al Qaeda in the Levant, the umbrella organization for the al-Nusra Front. His tweet, which was published on the radical Islamist website Hanein, features the alleged American's picture and the words, "Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki performed a martyrdom operation in Idlib, Jabal Al-Arba'een. May Allah accept him."

U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials have expressed concerns about Americans joining the fight in Syria, including with groups like the jihadist al-Nusra Front. The worry is that they and other Westerners might pose a threat when they return a home.

"There's going to be a diaspora out of Syria," FBI Director James Comey said last week. "And we are determined not to let lines be drawn from Syria today to a future 9/11."

Carmen - Bizet

The Road That Led To West Kardashian!

She will always be known as Kim Kardashian. The controversial reality turd who gained fame from being Ray-J's first sex tape experience has married rap producer and entertainer Kanye West.

Her formal name is Kim Kardashian-West.

The two were married in a ceremony over in Italy. This being Mrs. West's third and Kanye's first.

They had a child earlier this year.

The evil paparazzi managed to leak out photos of the wedding. Nah, it's obtained from the E! Network.

The E! Network has a show called Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The show features that woman and her family.

My suspicions are growing about the possibility of the marriage being a sham. But I am just a hater and I don't care for both of them.

Anyway, I wish them well on their future.

Little sis, Khloe who is estranged from her dope head former NBA husband Lamar Odom went to the Instagram social network to show the proof.

Quote Of The Day

Maya Angelou Passes Away!

President Barack Obama offers the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Maya Angelou.

Breaking today, the famed poet and civil rights activist died today according to most sources.

Maya Angelou was born Marguerite Ann Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014. 

Maya Angelou was an American author and poet. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning more than fifty years. She received dozens of awards and over thirty honorary doctoral degrees. Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of seventeen, and brought her international recognition and acclaim.

She became a poet and writer after a series of occupations as a young adult, including fry cook, prostitute, night-club dancer and performer, cast-member of the opera Porgy and Bess, coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and journalist in Egypt and Ghana during the days of decolonization. She was an actor, writer, director, and producer of plays, movies, and public television programs. Since 1982, she taught at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she holds the first lifetime Reynolds Professorship of American Studies. 

She was active in the Civil Rights movement, and worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Since the 1990s she made around eighty appearances a year on the lecture circuit, something she continued into her eighties. 

In 1993, Angelou recited her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Bill Clinton's inauguration, the first poet to make an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy's inauguration in 1961.

With the publication of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Angelou publicly discussed aspects of her personal life. She was respected as a spokesperson of black people and women, and her works have been considered a defense of black culture. Although attempts have been made to ban her books from some US libraries, her works are widely used in schools and universities worldwide. Angelou's major works have been labeled as autobiographical fiction, but many critics have characterized them as autobiographies. She made a deliberate attempt to challenge the common structure of the autobiography by critiquing, changing, and expanding the genre.

 Her books center on themes such as racism, identity, family, and travel. Angelou is best known for her autobiographies, but she is also an established poet, although her poems have received mixed reviews.

Angelou was found dead by her caretaker on the morning of May 28, 2014. She had reportedly been in bad health and had canceled recent scheduled appearances.

No Rap Geniuses Here!

Mahbod Moghadam was shown the door after he said that mass shooter's rampage was justified.

Mahbod Moghadam, the co-founder of social networking website RapGenius was force to resign after he endorsed the idea of Eliot Rodger's murderous rampage.

We live in a sick world when people start flocking around a mass killer because of his disgust of society.

How on earth can people relate to a man who could inspire a domestic attack on people who never knew him or ever had a chance to defend themselves?

This parallels to the conservative junk food agitators attacking the father of a victim. They claim that they feel "sorry" for the man that he lost his child, but he had no business bringing up the NRA or guns into the picture.

They believe that Rodger killed three with a knife. A knife is just a deadly says the conservative agitators.

HipHopDX reports that Moghadam, one of Rap Genius' co-founders, has resigned from the company following annotations he made regarding Elliot Rodger.

Rodger is a man law enforcement officials believe went on a killing spree near University of California, Santa Barbara recently, killing at least 6 people and injuring several others, before reportedly killing himself.

Moghadam's annotations, which have since been deleted, were placed on Rap Genius' site, annotating the 141-page manifesto believed to have been left behind by Rodger. In his annotations, Moghadam says at least part of Rodger's document is "beautifully written" and that Rodger's sister is likely "smokin hot."

"I was fascinated by the fact that a text was associated with such a heartbreaking crime, especially since Elliot is talking about my neighborhood growing up," Moghadam reportedly said in a statement to Gawker. "I got carried away with making the annotations and making any comment about his sisters was in horrible taste, thankfully the [Rap Genius] community edits out my poor judgment, I am very sorry for writing it."

Tom Lehman, who is a co-founder and CEO of Rap Genius, announced Moghadam's resignation yesterday (May 26). He said Moghadam “not only didn’t attempt to enhance anyone’s understanding of the text, but went beyond that into gleeful insensitivity and misogyny. All of which is contrary to everything we’re trying to accomplish at Rap Genius.

"I cannot let him compromise the Rap Genius mission,” Lehman added.

Rap Genius was founded by Moghadam, Lehman and Ilan Zechory in 2009. The three Yale students raised millions to back their company and have been involved in controversy surrounding publishing licenses for its content. Recently, the company worked with publishers and the National Music Publishers Association to help correct this issue.

Rap Genius was also targeted by Google within the last year for link schemes which impacted the company's standing with the search engine. Rap Genius returned to Google soon after being punished by the search engine. Their statement about the link issue included an apology to its readers and Google.

"To Google and our fans: we’re sorry for being such morons," the statement said. "We regret our foray into irrelevant unnatural linking. We’re focused on building the best site in the world for understanding lyrics, poetry, and prose and watching it naturally rise to the top of the search results."

Lehman's full statement regarding Mahbod Moghadam's resignation, as printed on Rap Genius, is below:

"Yesterday the Rap Genius community annotated Elliot Rodger’s manifesto on News Genius. Because this tragedy is still so raw, there was internal debate as to whether this document belonged on the site at all. Ultimately we decided that it was worthy of close reading – understanding the psychology of people who do horrible things can help us to better understand our society and ourselves.

"The current version of the annotated document is far from great, but the hope is that the annotations will improve over time as the story unfolds and it will eventually be a good resource for people looking to understand this tragedy.

"Almost all the annotations were at least attempting a close reading – they were genuinely, though imperfectly, trying to add context to the text and make it easier to understand.

"However, Mahbod Moghadam, one of my co-founders, annotated the piece with annotations that not only didn’t attempt to enhance anyone’s understanding of the text, but went beyond that into gleeful insensitivity and misogyny. All of which is contrary to everything we’re trying to accomplish at Rap Genius.

"Were Mahbod’s annotations posted by a new Rap Genius user, it would be up to our community leaders, who set the tone of the site and our approach to annotation, to delete them and explain to the new user why they were unacceptable.

"Were Mahbod’s annotations posted by a Rap Genius moderator, that person would cease to be an effective community leader and would have to step down.

"And Mahbod, our original community leader, is no exception. In light of this, Mahbod has resigned – both in his capacity as an employee of the company, and as a member of our board of directors, effective immediately.

"Mahbod is my friend. He's a brilliant, creative, complicated person with a ton of love in his heart. Without Mahbod Rap Genius would not exist, and I am grateful for all he has done to help Rap Genius succeed. But I cannot let him compromise the Rap Genius mission – a mission that remains almost as delicate and inchoate as it was when we three founders decided to devote our lives to it almost 5 years ago."

Another Entitled Man in California Shooting Women

Police search for California man who shot at 3 women who refused to have sex with him (via Raw Story )
A man in Stockton, California allegedly fired eight rounds from a 9mm handgun at three women who refused to have sex with him and his friends. According to Stockton Police, the women had accompanied the three men to their home around 1:45 a.m. Saturday…

Buzz Kill!

No love for Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. The entertainers got a dose of reality today.

Two stories for your Monday. 

Two rappers who had once feuded over a woman both got a dose of reality.

Entertainer Wiz Khalifa was busted in Texas for the green.

The New York Post decides to act like a bunch of dicks towards Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

After exiting a plane in El Paso, Texas, marijuana advocate and rapper Cameron Thomaz (aka Wiz Khalifa) was busted in the terminal for a few ounces.

The entertainer managed to get a selfie while being detained (and later released). 

Blacc Hollywood is coming this year. The mixtape 28 Grams is expected to be released on the DatPiff this week. 

Wiz Khalifa is a rapper and producer who hails from Pittsburgh. He is married to fashion model Amber Rose.

Rose was the former fiance of rapper/producer Kanye West.

Now the New York Post decides to send their congratulations in a not so nice way towards Kimye.

The conservative publication is notorious for racial attacks and just plain hateful bullshit decides to get a dig at the weekend marriage of the two celebrity agitators.


This is open disrespect towards these two. Sure they may be annoying agitators, but this is just tasteless journalism. This is the type of stuff you find in the Onion.

It's been reported that Jay-Z and Beyonce may have not made the guest list. 

Most Americans believe that this could be a "sham" marriage. This is Kim Kardashian's third marriage. This is Kanye West's first. The two have a child together.

The Kardashians are the most hated celebrities here in America. But the New York Post is one of the worst newspapers in the world. It's owned by NewsCorp, the sponsors of Loserville and the Republican Party.

Womanist Musings: George Sodini: Misogynist and Racist

Womanist Musings: George Sodini: Misogynist and Racist

Past posting from Womanist Musings regarding George Sodini's misogynistic racism.  I see the similarities between yesterday's Santa Barbara shooter and Mr. Sodini.   Mr Sodini's right-wing racism and Eliot 

Rodger's.  This serves as proof that the war on women, working/middle class people, and people of Color are real and deadly!

According to Renee Martin:

White women and people of color are routinely referred to as angry and castrating and yet the violence of White men is always viewed as an anomaly.  Limbaugh recently referred to Obama as an angry Black man for daring initially to speak truth to power regarding the Gates incident, however the ways in which White men use hate speech and violence to maintain their undeserved privilege is never seen for what it truly is – fear and anger run amok.
Sodini may be only one man but his body represents much of the anger that White men are currently experiencing at the thought that power dynamics could possibly change.  Some may not go as far as to murder innocent people, however just as one would not turn your back on a wounded animal, so to is it dangerous to take the threat that they pose lightly.  This is not about how Sodini felt as man but specifically how he identified as a White man. 

Blame Game: Elliot Rodger's Murderous Rampage!

Elliot Rodger
The nice guy is the most dangerous individual. Elliot Rodgers was rejected by society. He decides to launch an assault against everyone.

S. Baldwin broke the news of a California gunman who committed an act of terrorism at the University of California Santa Barbara.

A spree killing occurred in Isla Vista, California, starting with a stabbing attack at an apartment, followed by a series of drive-by shootings near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara. Seven people were killed, including the attacker, and thirteen others were wounded.

The attacker was identified as 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was a student at Santa Barbara City College.

He was born in London, England, but moved to the United States when he was five years old. His father was filmmaker Peter Rodger, whose credits include working as an assistant director for The Hunger Games. His stepmother was actress Soumaya Akaaboune.

According to the Rodger family's attorney, Rodger saw multiple therapists and was a student at Santa Barbara City College. The lawyer also claims that Rodger was diagnosed with "highly functional Asperger syndrome" as a child and was allegedly bullied.

He had a YouTube account, a Facebook account, and a blog titled Elliot Rodger's Official Blog, all of which contained posts expressing loneliness and rejection.

A week prior to the shooting, his parents reported him to police after being concerned about his behavior and YouTube videos. During the past year, police had investigated Rodger three separate times, including one incident where he claimed he was beaten, but investigators presumed he was the aggressor.

Roger posted a video on YouTube on the day of the attack, titled Elliot Rodger's Retribution, in which he complained of being rejected by women and described details of his upcoming attack.

In the video, he laid out his motivations and plans, saying:

"Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge. ...You girls have never been attracted to me. I don't know why you girls aren't attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it."

Police said they were investigating the video.

In his 140-page manifesto titled "My Twisted World", he also outlined some of his plans:

"On the day before the Day of Retribution, I will start the First Phase of my vengeance: Silently killing as many people as I can around Isla Vista by luring them into my apartment through some form of trickery."

You can read this disturbing manifesto here.

Three people were killed during the shootings. They were identified as Katherine Cooper, 22, and Veronika Weiss, 19, both students at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who were killed at the sorority house; and Christopher Martinez, 20, another UCSB student who was killed at the Isla Vista Deli Mart. 

Three other men were stabbed to death repeatedly at the attacker's apartment prior to the shooting spree; their identities are currently unreleased, but they were confirmed to be the attacker's roommates.

Thirteen other people were injured, eight of them from gunshot wounds and four others by blunt trauma sustained after being struck by the attacker's vehicle. The thirteenth injury was undetermined.

Be warned this is extremely disturbing. The video is considered not safe for work.

Of course, the conservatives will say that this mentally disturbed individual who managed to commit an act of terrorism among innocent victims as a card carrying member of the Democratic Party.

The racist right blogs couldn't help themselves by saying this White terrorist is a "leftist", "Democrat" or "liberal". 

Can't let the political fire die down.

It seems like I've repeated this one too many times. The usual finger pointing from the agitators of the junk food media.

The left will say: "Here we go again, another mass shooting in America and the president and Congress will not move the needle on curbing gun violence. The NRA can't do nothing right. All they want is 'more guns' and we'll pay the price with blood! You see why cutting government is a bad thing! The sequester is hurting the country and Republicans are responsible for the tragedy!"

The right will say: "See what we told you! There's a need for more firearms in the workplace. Besides, these liberals seriously think a piece of paper or a law can stop a gunman. If more people were armed this man would have seen justice. Anyways, isn't this guy an Obama voter? After all this could have been a liberal, don't you know?"

One thing is clear about this political football it's going to be an agitator who peaks into who the person votes for.

Who cares what political affiliation he had?

Who cares what he's done before the shooting?

Leave all that for federal and state law enforcement. Because for all we know is that the man went on a rampage. He stabbed people. He started shooting at people. He took his own life.

We all hear that story about the shooter was being a "nice guy" and friendly! People who are rejected by women, jobs, society itself and are often look at as doormats are likely to snap. Being the "nice guy" is going to be considered a threat upon the country. Introverts and loners (basically the bullied) are likely to be the next mass shooter. It wouldn't matter on the race, the gender, the sexuality, the political, the religious or social status.

A bullet has no name. It doesn't care where it hits. It's a piece of metal fired from the barrel. It doesn't discriminate against a liberal or a conservative. It doesn't matter whether it's a Democrat or Republican. It's going to hit something.

If it hits the flesh, then the victim is injured.

There's no coming back from the dead. You can't complain about politics when you're dead!

What's done is done! Dead is dead.

Richard Martinez, the father of victim Christopher, the young man who was gunned down, was upset and not only pointed the finger at Rodger, but the lawmakers and NRA for allowing this to happen.

The Associated Press report that Martinez talked to his son just 45 minutes before he was shot and killed inside a deli. Martinez says his son's roommate tried to revive him, but he died at the scene."

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to those lost in this senseless tragedy.

Elliot Rodger Killed People Because He Couldn't Get Laid..WTF????

War on women continues.

Elliot Rodgers Was Racist Too....

Mental Illness Defense So Freaking Fast....SMH!!!!

The Town Of West Kardashian!

Celebrity agitators are getting married. Kim Kardashian's third and Kanye West's first.

Kim Kardashian, the celebriturd and her boyfriend/fiance rapper Kanye West are getting married this weekend. Kardashian is a reality star and annoying celebrity. She and her family along with former athlete Bruce Jenner are on this reality show on E! Network.

Kardashian recently had a daughter with her high profile and controversial boyfriend. West is a producer, rapper, media mogul. He is a signed act to Roc-A-Fella/RocNation and is the founder G.O.O.D. Music.

G.O.O.D. Music is credited to Common, Big Sean, John Legend and Pusha T's album releases.

This marriage is going to be big. This will be Kardashian's third marriage and West's first. This is a high profile wedding. The junk food media is swarming to Italy.

The wedding is closing kept under wraps. West is trying to surprise his beau with many themes.

Kardashian landed her first American Vogue cover for the magazine's April 2014 issue, together with West. The cover has been lauded by some, while others have taken a more critical look of the reality star being on the cover, with she and West dubbed the "#worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple (or Kimye)."

In my opinion, I think that this could be a sham marriage.

I just have this big feeling that these two celebrity agitators are going to have a huge fallout.

But I can't judge them. They're in love.

We here at Journal de la Reyna wish these two well. And if anything leaks about the wedding, you'll get the latest here.

Julián Castro Raising The Stakes!

San Antonio mayor Julián Castro will be the pick for HUD. His brother Joaquin is a Democratic U.S. Congressman from Texas. 

Soon the San Antonio mayor will be a part of President Barack Obama's administration giving the junk food media more speculation that he may be a potential contender for White House.

The bid for the secretary of Housing and Urban Development is going to filled today.

Shaun Donovan will resign from this post today to be the nominee for the Office of Budget Management.

Julián Castro delivered the Democratic keynote speech in 2012 giving the junk food media a bone. His speech rings echos of then candidate for U.S. Senate Barack Obama's famed 2004 Democratic keynote speech.

Obama would win his bid for the U.S. Senate. Most media analysis knew that Obama was an early front runner for the White House. Although he kept it under wraps until 2007, the talk was growing. I knew from the jump that Barack Obama was the first serious Black contender for the White House.

I have this feeling again. I believe that Castro will be the best candidate for the Democratic nomination.

I really believe that Hillary Clinton is destined for failure. She's a well liked and also most talked about politician. She was a former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State.

The two things that may sink her chances: Perennial candidate and she carries a lot of baggage.

Conservatives will whine Benghazi, Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, age, and Bill Clinton every chance they get. They really are obsessed with Clinton and especially Obama.

I have a feeling that she'll be toying around the notion of running for president, but in reality she won't.

Castro being young, Hispanic and well-liked is the perfect choice for the Democrats.

Democrats have a growing Hispanic/Latino base. He seems to have the formula of President Barack Obama in connecting to young voters with the internet.

Republicans are hoping to appeal to the young voters. They figure that hip-hop Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida could pull in a few.

Castro will be mention frequently on Journal de la Reyna.

Obviously if he declares his intent to run, expect the attacks from the racist right to come.

First his last name will be compared to Fidel Castro. He's Hispanic, so once again the birth certificate rumors. Then they'll attack his brother, his wife and even his child. They will take shots at San Antonio.

The racist right will claim that Blacks and Latinos vote only on race instead of policies.

The racist right will do a Obama style NIGGERZATION on Castro.

Jason "The Manchild" Mattera Ambushes Rev. Perm!

Conservative gnat confronts Rev. Perm.

Conservative agitator Jason "The Manchild" Mattera once again tries this in your face journalism on people who he claims are hypocrites. Last time he tried to confront comedian Chris Rock and this kind of gotten out of control. Then he tried to run up on Bono, and was shocked to find that he was talking to a Bono impersonator.

These confrontations were part of his book Hollywood Hypocrites. The last book he wrote was Obama Zombies. Each book is full of his hyperbolic criticism of liberals and how conservatives must master the message to appeal to minorities. Most people of color view Republicans and their conservative allies as racist. Yet, in this empty head, Mattera continues to be in a denial of reality. He will continue to agitate those who he felt got away with "murder".

Now still up to his notorious race-baiting tactics, he goes after Rev. Perm over his Crown Heights comments.

Like racial arsonist James O'Keefe, Mattera has a history of distorting the truth. So obviously, I have to not take this video for face value. After all it cuts off with his recording speeches of 20 years ago.

Of course Rev. Perm is the founder of the National Action Network, host of Obama News program PoliticsNation and a signed act on Cash Money Records. The Rev has history of grassroots protest and provocateur activism. He's a well known liberal agitator.

The racist right can't stand him and Jesse "Cut His Nuts Off" Jackson. They believe that every time an event happens in America and it involves a White on Black crime, the racist right expects these two to be involved. 

Rev. Perm with Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, the parents of deceased teen Trayvon Martin.
So digging back into the vault, Jason Mattera pulls out all the statements of the past. 

The Rev. was an active activist in New York he made some not so nice comments about the Jewish community during the Crown Heights riots. The Crown Heights riot began on August 19, 1991 after a car driven by a Jewish man, and part of a procession led by an unmarked police car, went through an intersection and was struck by another vehicle causing it to veer onto the sidewalk where it accidentally struck and killed a seven-year-old Guyanese boy named Gavin Cato and severely injured his cousin Angela. 

Witnesses could not agree upon the speed and could not agree whether the light was yellow or red. One of the factors that sparked the riot was the arrival of a private ambulance, which was later discovered to be on the orders of a police officer who was worried for the Jewish driver's safety, removed him from the scene while Cato lay pinned under his car.

During a protest the Rev. said, "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house".

So as Mattera goes into confrontation he first asked the Rev. that in spite of the "lifetime ban" of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, why isn't he banned from Obama News?

As Rev. Perm was walking to the event, Mattera continues hounding him with questions.

If Mattera really wanted to debate Rev. Perm why don't he go on PoliticsNation?

See he's too much of a punk to do that. And his videos aren't but distortions of truth.

As Wikipedia explains it, Rev. Perm is controversial but yet effective. Rev. Perm's supporters praise "his ability and willingness to defy the power structure that is seen as the cause of their suffering" and consider him "a man who is willing to tell it like it is". Former Mayor of New York City Ed Koch, a one-time foe, said that Rev. Perm deserves the respect he enjoys among Black Americans: "He is willing to go to jail for them, and he is there when they need him."

His critics describe him as "a political radical who is to blame, in part, for the deterioration of race relations".

Sociologist Orlando Patterson has referred to him as a racial arsonist, while liberal columnist Derrick Z. Jackson has called him the black equivalent of Richard Nixon and Pat Robertson. Rev. Perm sees much of the criticism as a sign of his effectiveness. "In many ways, what they consider criticism is complimenting my job," he said. "An activist's job is to make public civil rights issues until there can be a climate for change."

SCOTUS Is So Stupid!

Religious prayer is allowed in municipal buildings.

Greece, New York wins a public battle. I guess we have no separation of church and state in the eyes of the Supreme Court. In a ruling of 5-4, the town of Greece won against a man who believed the public meeting places (such as non-religious city hall) shouldn't allow prayer.

So I am hoping an imam gets an opportunity to preach an Islamic prayer at a city hall meeting. I hope an atheist can speak at a city hall meeting.

The five members of the conservative wing of the Supreme Court of the United States once again think backwards when it comes to the country's diverse citizens.

Four White men and one Black man who have no common sense ruled for localities to use prayer whenever they open up a government meeting. Saying that Christian prayer is allow in civic meetings.

Again SCOTUS blog reports that Supreme Court rules that the town's practice of opening its town board meetings with a prayer offered by members of the clergy does not violate the Establishment Clause when the practice is consistent with the tradition long followed by Congress and state legislatures, the town does not discriminate against minority faiths in determining who may offer a prayer, and the prayer does not coerce participation with non-adherents.
A Black Catholic priest gives the benediction.
By the ruling, it was reversed. The 5-4 decision with an opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy on May 5, 2014. Justice Antonin Scalia and Justice Clarence Thomas join the majority opinion except as to Part II-B. Justice Samuel Alito filed a concurring opinion, in which Justice Scalia joined. Justice Thomas filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment, in which Justice Scalia joined as to Part II. Justice Steven Breyer filed a dissenting opinion. Justice Elena Kagan filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice Breyer, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor joined.

The reaction to the courts ruling was diverse. Christian conservatives and others who feel that religious expression has been overly curtailed in public settings were happy with ruling. Eric Rassbach, deputy general counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, called the court's decision "a great victory for religious liberty."

Along with their supporters the Jewish and atheist women who filed suit against the town of Greece were disappointed by the court's ruling.

A number of Jewish organizations, including the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League, had filed amici curiae briefs in support of the respondents, and expressed disappointment with the majority's decision.
The Town of Greece residents give a prayer before they do public meeetings.
Secular groups were also disappointed. Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, for example stated: “We are disappointed by today’s decision. Official religious favoritism should be off-limits under the Constitution. Town-sponsored sectarian prayer violates the basic rule requiring the government to stay neutral on matters of faith.”

Ira Lupu, a law professor emeritus at George Washington University who specializes in the First Amendment, called the court's ruling "a very bad decision" because it undermined the Establishment Clause.

Lupu explained that the court decision "does not insist on any [...] reasonable effort to make prayer nonsectarian or to push for diversity. The majority faith in a particular community can dictate the prayers and minority faiths could be left out if they don’t step up and say, ‘Hey, what about us?'"

The Los Angeles Times pointed out that the decision divided the justices along religious lines, as well as ideological ones. All five justices in the majority were Catholics, and three out of the four dissenters were Jewish.

Ohio Criminal's Life Ends With Speed!

Knife-wielding man jailed on assault charge photo
Ohio criminal made a poor decision while on the road.

I used Google to find out the name of a victim of a roadway tragedy in Dayton, Ohio this week.

I kind of know this person. Back in the day, I worked at gas station on Harshman Road in Dayton. When I was a cashier, there was this little man who was heavily tattooed  who came into the gas station quite often.

He would usually be in the gas station with a young white woman and they would often act "suspiciously".

The city records often told a tale of a man who had a temper. A man who couldn't keep his foot off the pedal. A man who would drink more than his share of alcoholic beverages. A man who didn't believe a seat belt was necessary when he was driving.

Joshua Richmond, 31 was apparently speeding on Valley Street. He lost control and crashed into two vehicles. He was pronounced dead.

Although we here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Joshua Richmond, I am guessing his mistakes (i.e. county lockup) didn't change his behavior. This incident cost him his life.
Vehicle collision on local street kills man.
Nearly a year ago, Richmond was a knife welding man tried to carjack literally a man on bicycle.

WHIO-TV reports that Richmond, a 4-foot, 111-pound man tried to steal a bicycle Monday morning on the 1200 block of Keifer Street.

When another resident came out to the parking lot, the man approached the resident with a knife before tripping and dropping the weapon, according to the incident report.

The resident was then able to kick the knife away, police said.

When police arrived, they found an apparently intoxicated Richmond, stumbling around in the parking lot while cursing the man who pushed him down “for no reason,” according to the incident report.

Mos Def On The Banned List!

American rapper was denied entry into the United States. Yasiin Bey, known as Mos Def was to perform at an event in Boston but he was stopped at the gate.

Mos Def  (Dante Terrell Smith known as Yasiin Bey) is an activist and rapper.

Brooklyn based entertainer was denied entry into the country this week. He was supposed to perform at the Together Boston event but somehow his change of residence and political views may have been the reason for his denial.

“We regret to inform you that due to immigration / legal issues Yasiin Bey is unable to enter back into the United States and his upcoming U.S. tour has been canceled, including May 15th, Together Boston’s show at The Wilbur Theatre,” the statement read. “Individual ticket refunds for this show are available at point of sale.”

The Grammy and Emmy nominated rapper/actor recently relocated to South Africa, though it’s unclear whether he gave up his American citizenship. No reason was given for the denial of reentry.

Mos Def is well known for his left-leaning political views.

In 2000, Mos Def performed a benefit concert for death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Mos Def appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher where he spoke about racism against African Americans, citing the government response to Hurricane Katrina, the Jena Six and the murder conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal. He appeared on Real Time again on March 27, 2009, and spoke about the risk of nuclear weapons.

Mos Def said that he did not listen to any of Osama Bin Laden's messages because he did not trust the translations.

In July 2013, Mos Def, under the new name Yasiin Bey, appeared in a short film released by the human rights organization Reprieve, depicting the forced-feeding methods used at the Guantanamo Bay detention camps. This transpired after a document containing the military instructions for the procedure was leaked.

Something Ain't Right At Will And Jada's House!

The Fresh Prince and his princess are facing legal troubles.
Famed couple Will and Jada Pickett Smith are facing some questioning by the Los Angeles Children's Service because of their daughter Willow's crazy antics.

The Huffington Post reports that media sources swirling around their young daughter Willow was lying up with an older man. That picture below has the media going bonkers. Now all of sudden, our friends in the junk food media will "whip their hairs" into this scandal.

“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand," a source told the website, adding that social workers will be speaking to Willow separately, as well as former Disney star Moises Arias, who was pictured with her in the photo.

The Huffington Post has reached out to both Smith and Pinkett Smith's reps for comment, but has yet to hear back at this time.

Picture worth a thousand words.
Meanwhile, the 42-year-old actress and matriarch of the family, brushed off the notion of any controversy after the photo of Willow sparked attention, telling TMZ's cameramen:

"Here's the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."

Will Smith has yet to make any comment regarding the photo, but viral photos seem to run in the family, as a photo of him helping a fan announce her pregnancy has exploded online.

Dirty Rotten Politico Mitch McConnell Beats Insurgent!

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is one of the most dirtiest politicians ever to be in Washington, DC.

The senator who happens to be the Minority Leader in the Senate managed to beat back an insurgent from the right. The Tea Party endorsed Matt Bevin was roundly defeated by McConnell's dirty tactics.

In the general he will face Alison Lundergan Grimes, the secretary of state for Kentucky.

He's already preparing to scare the Kentuckians into believing Grimes is the "devil".

McConnell is considered vulnerable as reflected in his low approval ratings.

This election race is one of only two Republican-held seats that is considered a tossup, the other being retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss's seat in Georgia.

Game on.

The most controversial race is off and we'll see if Alison Lundergan Grimes can beat a dirty, but effective and savvy political foe.

Mikey D's Rolls Out A Son Of A Mac!

Company launches new promotion that is already causing an uproar.

Who's bright idea is to have this as a mascot for the world's most successful and yes controversial fast food restaurant?

The Chicago-based McDonald's corporation is retiring Ronald McDonald, the iconic clown who is a part of every young child's experience with a Happy Meal.

The clown hasn't hasn't been a feature since 2007.

The company unwraps the most unappealing mascot ever.
Are you happy?

Now doesn't that bring a child to McDonald's?

How many underpaid employees will suffer for this epic rollout of the "Happy" mascot?

If you're not a fan of the creepy box thing, you're not alone. It's being slammed on social networks and I hope that the McDonald's executives hear the word.

After all their CEO Donald Thompson, can lose weight eating a handful of those meals!

Actor Questioned In Death Of His Wife!

Actor Michael Jace is facing charges for murder.

Michael Jace is under the spotlight. The actor who is best known for his role as staunchly Christian (but secretly gay) officer Julien Lowe in the FX hit series The Shield is now going up the creek for the death of his wife April.

April Jace, 40, was found fatally shot in her home in south Los Angeles last night, and Jace has now been booked on a homicide charge. TMZ reports that Jace himself called police, and that he said on the 911 call, "I shot my wife." Sources say he was home alone; his wife came home with their two children, and he allegedly shot her a short time later—as the children, both under 10, looked on.

Jace also has starred in the movies The Replacements, playing a prison inmate turned football player; Forrest Gump, playing a member of the Black Panthers; The Fan, playing an arrogant ticket scalper; as well as an array of TV appearances including the 1995 HBO TV movie Tyson (as boxer Mitch Green), Law & Order, Cold Case, and the 1999 Fox TV movie Michael Jordan: An American Hero (as Jordan).

Jace was detained by the Los Angeles Police Department on May 19, 2014. Police had responded to a home in the Hyde Park section of South Los Angeles after receiving a report of a domestic violence incident.

Police took Jace into custody for questioning in her death. On May 20, he was formally charged in her shooting death.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of April Jace. Her husband threw away a career.

Breitbart Still Agitating From The Grave!

The lawsuits against him continues. Even though this agitator is dead, his assets would be up for grabs by those who sued him.

The racist right lost an ally to their efforts. On February 29, 2012, after finishing his documentary Hating Breitbart, conservative agitator Andrew Breitbart was at a local spot in his hometown of Los Angeles.

Everything was cool until the early morning of March 1. After leaving his spot, he was walking home. He would.collapse and die on route to the hospital. He passed away of a heart attack.

I remember that four days before his death, he was on That Guy Who Helped Obama Win's program. He was promoting that devastating tape that could rattle the institutional left. A tape that President Barack Obama was shielding from the junk food media.

Everyone was caught off guard by this.  Not many in the junk food media had heard of him. They knew he was the one who brought down ACORN, the community organization group the racist right believed "stole" the election from John McCain.

ACORN was being taped by James O'Keefe (aka ACORN Pimp), a right wing activist and his girlfriend at the time Hannah Giles. They would sneak into the community organization office as normal people and then turn around and put on a pimp and prostitute outfit. Their antics managed to shut down the community organization. Their antics managed to get them in trouble with the fired employees.

O'Keefe, Giles and Breitbart were forced to shelve out money after the tapes produced were found to be misleading and slanderous.

They heard of Breitbart being the guy who managed to embarrass Anthony Weiner, a longtime Democratic lawamker from New York. He got major credit for catching the lawmaker sexting women his penis. That led to the mighty fall of Weiner.
Shirley Sherrod is the most high profile litigant against the estate of Andrew Breitbart.
Weiner tried to resurrect his career by running for mayor of New York. His career tanked after got caught sending even more disturbing and even more explicit photos of his penis.

Now there's a real big story involving Breitbart. It comes in regards of Shirley Sherrod, the former USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) worker who was fired by the federal government after she was accused of saying offensive statements about White people.

July 19, 2010, Shirley Sherrod was forced to resign from her appointed position as Georgia State Director of Rural Development for the United States Department of Agriculture because of administration reaction to media reports on video excerpts from her address to an event of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in March 2010 and commentary posted by blogger Andrew Breitbart on his website.

Based on these excerpts, the NAACP condemned Sherrod's remarks as racist and U.S. government officials called on the official to resign. But, when the story was understood to be about the NAACP audience reaction to Sherrod's story, and not Sherrod at all, the NAACP and White House officials apologized. In addition, United States Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack apologized for the firing and offered Sherrod a new position.

Sherrod would file a lawsuit for defamation in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against Andrew Breitbart, TV chief Larry O'Connor, and a "John Doe," who, according to the complaint, is "an individual whose identity has been concealed by the other defendants and who, according to defendant Breitbart, was involved in the deceptive editing of the video clip and encouraged its publication with the intent to defame Mrs. Sherrod."

On April 18, 2011, Breitbart and O'Connor filed joint motions for dismissal on First Amendment grounds, known in legal circles as an "anti-SLAPP motion." The motion argued that Breitbart's "1400-word, July 19, 2010 commentary... that is the subject of Sherrod’s lawsuit" was in the context of a "months-long and very loud public clash between Tea Party conservatives and the NAACP and its allies in Congress."

The motion was denied, and on February 15, 2012, the U.S. District Court issued a six-page "statement of reasons" which accused Breitbart and O'Connor of wasting "a considerable amount of judicial and litigant resources" on their "'novel' if not overreaching motion."

On March 2012, Andrew Breitbart died of heart failure. He remained a named party in Sherrod’s lawsuit until August 2013, when Sherrod’s lawyers moved to name Susie Bean Breitbart, his widow, as defendant in the lawsuit.

In 2014, Sherrod's lawyers indicated that U.S. executive branch privilege may play a role in the suit

To this day, most on the racist right believe that Sherrod is a "racist". Her image was severely tarnished.

Tom Vilsack, the current USDA chief is being subpoenaed to court  Lawyers for Sherrod and O'Connor said Friday that they had subpoenaed Vilsack for deposition earlier this week. They did so after U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon said in a hearing Monday that Vilsack's testimony could speed up the conclusion of the case. The USDA referred calls to the Justice Department, which did not respond to a request to confirm that Vilsack had been subpoenaed.

When Sherrod's full speech to an NAACP group earlier that year came to light, it became clear that her remarks about an initial reluctance to help a white farmer decades ago were not racist but an attempt at telling a story of racial reconciliation. Once that was obvious, Sherrod received public apologies from the administration — even from President Barack Obama himself — and an offer to return to the Agriculture Department, which she declined.

Sherrod's lawyers have been pushing the government to release more documents and emails in an effort to get more information on her ouster. At one point, the judge said that deposing Vilsack, who has said he alone made the decision to seek Sherrod's resignation, might be a quicker route to the information.

The case is one of the first high-profile federal lawsuits to test bloggers' freedom of speech rights, and large news organizations including The New York Times Co., The Washington Post Co. and Dow Jones & Company have filed friend-of-the-court briefs in the suit.

Sherrod's lawsuit says the incident affected her sleep and caused her back pain. It contends that she was damaged by having her "integrity, impartiality and motivations questioned, making it difficult (if not impossible) for her to continue her life's work assisting poor farmers in rural areas" even though she was invited to return to the department.

Lawyers for the bloggers argue the blog post was opinion and did not defame Sherrod.

The Breitbart empire is collapsing. Nothing of the shit is sticking to the wall. With the passing of Andrew Breitbart death, the company is left with no motivation.

O'Keefe, Giles and Dana Loesh left Beirtbart on sour terms. Joel Pollack went to Crazy Jones and InfoWars. Ben Shapiro left the company to jump onto agitator radio.


Michael Jackson Performs At The Billboard Music Awards!

michael jackson hologram performance billboard music awards5
Amazing hologram of Michael Jackson. The producers of the Billboard Music Awards managed to have the legendary singer perform. 

Again, I do not watch awards shows. I find them boring.

I don't care for multimillionaires.

I don't care for celebrities who always manage to make the news.

I don't care about celebrities getting married or divorced.

I don't care about actresses or women in the news getting pregnant.

I don't care about celebrities going from lover to lover.

I don't care about celebrities showing off their new hairstyles.

I don't care celebrities who make their "coming out" parties a tabloid event.

I don't care about celebrities and their personal drug problems.

I don't care about celebrities making their love lives the public's business.

I don't care about this stuff.

One thing that manage to grab the junk food media was the performance by a legend.

Michael Jackson performed live at the Billboard Music Awards to the amazement of those in the audience.

Yeah, this new thing going around. They resurrect the dead.

It's shocking and very amazing. They managed to create a hologram of the legendary King Of Pop.

The Billboard Music Awards is an honor given by Billboard, a publication and music popularity chart covering the music business. The Billboard Music Awards show had been held annually since 1989 in December until it went dormant in 2007. The awards returned in 2011 and has been held annually in May since.
michael jackson hologram performance billboard music awards

Billboard reports that the Michael Jackson performance on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards was the result of nearly half a year of planning, choreography and filming, not to mention the development of new technology. Producers of the Billboard Music Awards did not see even a portion of the film until eight days before the broadcast.

Jackson, in hologram form, performed "Slave to the Rhythm" midway through Sunday night's show with a five-piece band and 16 dancers live onstage. Jackson appeared in gold jacket, white T-shirt and brick red trousers on a set modeled on the art work for the album "Dangerous," an appropriate choice as the track was recorded in 1991 with L.A. Reid and Babyface during the sessions for that album. Released this week on "XSCAPE," which is neck-and-neck with the new Black Keys album for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week, the track was produced by Timbaland.

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 and the junk food media went live. From east to west, from ocean to ocean, people didn't expect him to pass away.

Blogger Busted For Break In!

YouTube blogger Clayton Kelly (aka Constitution Kelly) lockup photo.

The Tea Party blogger was trying to get dirt on establishment Mississippi Republican senator Thad Cochran.

He got his ass busted for snapping a photo of Cochran's bed ridden wife in a local nursing home.

Clayton Kelly, a Mississippi political blogger who runs Constitutional Clayton, has been arrested by police for reportedly sneaking into the nursing home where Senator Thad Cochran‘s wife is and snapping a photo of her, and posting it online.
Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS)
According to the Clarion Ledger, Kelly snuck into the nursing home and took a picture of a bedridden Rose Cochran, who has been at the nursing home since 2000. An attorney for the senator and his wife said their “privacy and dignity have been violated,” and explained that they were alerted to the picture being posted online. Cochran himself also put out a statement emphasizing how his wife’s health continues to be a private family matter.

Kelly is a supporter of Cochran opponent Chris McDaniel, but the McDaniel campaign has strongly denied any connection to or knowledge of Kelly’s actions, let alone any knowledge of who he is.

Thad Cochran is a vulnerable Republican in the primaries. The state of Mississippi is considered safe for Republicans. There's not many areas Democrats can win.

Brown V. Board Of Education: 60 Years Later!

Future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall celebrates with Oliver Brown in the landmark decision of Brown v. Board of Education. This decision would ban discrimination in public schools and make segregation illegal.

Still a long way to go. But in America, you can now be in a diversified school. If it wasn't for the landmark decision of Brown v. Board of Education, the American schools would still be segregated.

The decision overturned the Plessy v. Ferguson decision of 1896, which allowed state-sponsored segregation, insofar as it applied to public education. Handed down on May 17, 1954, the Warren Court's unanimous (9–0) decision stated that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." As a result, de jure racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This ruling paved the way for integration and was a major victory of the civil rights movement.

Again, we here at Journal de la Reyna celebrate in diversity and equal rights for all.

New Hampshire Police Chief: Plain As Day Obama's A NIGGER!

Yokel cop decides to call the president is NIGGER. 
The American racist right is considered a threat to country.

They exist in America.

There's this jackass law enforcement leader from the town of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire getting a lot of attention. Around a few friends, he told of this Black man in the White House being a NIGGER.

Who's the NIGGER?

Well the racist right usually calls him more than just a NIGGER. They call him a Muslim, a monkey, a Communist, a Socialist, a moron., a racist, a terrorist, an anti-American and just to thing what's next from the racist right!

The Boston Globe reports that a police commissioner in a predominantly white New Hampshire town says he won’t apologize for calling President Barack Obama the N-word, and he sat with his arms crossed while angry residents at a meeting called for his resignation on Thursday.

Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland, who’s 82 and white, has acknowledged in an email to his fellow police commissioners he used the racial slur in describing Obama.

Town resident Jane O'Toole, who moved to Wolfeboro four months ago, said she overheard Copeland say the slur at a restaurant in March and wrote to the town manager about it. Copeland, in an email to her, acknowledged using the slur in referring to the president and said he will not apologize.

‘‘I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse,’’ Copeland said in the email to his fellow police commissioners, part of which he forwarded to O'Toole. ‘‘For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.’’

Copeland, who has declined to be interviewed, is one of three members of the police commission, which hires, fires and disciplines officers and sets their salaries. He ran unopposed for re-election and secured another three-year term on March 11.

About 20 black people live in Wolfeboro, a town of 6,300 residents in the scenic Lakes Region, in the central part of New Hampshire, a state that’s 94 percent white and 1 percent black. None of the town police department’s 12 full-time officers is black or a member of another minority.

Carroll County Deputy Sheriff Paul Bois, who’s black, is one of two officers the town employs part time during the summer to deal with tourists. When asked to comment outside the meeting, he said, ‘‘I'd love to, but I can't.’’
Wolfeboro, NH.
Town Manager David Owen said Thursday that while he finds Copeland’s comment ‘‘reprehensible,’’ he and the board of selectmen have no authority to remove an elected official. He said he expected a large number of residents would call for Copeland’s resignation at the police commission meeting, and they did.

More than 100 people packed into the meeting room at the Wolfeboro Public Library, where librarian Joyce Davis said she can’t remember an issue in 40 years that has sparked so much emotion and outcry. Many of the people wore on their shirts handmade stickers saying, ‘‘Resign,’’ directed at Copeland.

‘‘Comments like these, especially coming from a public official, are not only inexcusable but also terribly, unfortunately, reflects poorly on our town,’’ said O'Toole, who was met with resounding applause.

Commissioner Ron Goodgame, in response to a challenge from O'Toole about whether he and Commission Chairman Joseph Balboni Jr. endorse Copeland’s comments, said, ‘‘It’s neither my view or Commissioner Balboni’s view that the remarks are condoned.’’

Balboni told the Concord Monitor he didn’t plan to ask Copeland to resign.

Nearly two dozen speakers at Thursday’s meeting called on Copeland to quit, and two spoke in his defense. Resident Frank Bader mocked those who took offense at Copeland’s comments in a state that prizes freedom.

‘‘All this man did was express his displeasure with the man who’s in office,’’ Bader said.

After Balboni closed the meeting’s public comment session, many people in the audience descended on Copeland, who remained seated at the commissioners’ table and staunchly refused to engage them.

‘‘I want to think about what’s going on and decide,’’ he said.

Woman Poses As A Teen Fakes A Texas Town!

This is a photo of a young woman who posed as a teenage girl. She's in the lockup for betraying the trust of the family she gotten adopted to.

Friday, is here!

Today I happen to find an interesting story about a woman who tricked her friends and adoptive family into thinking that she was a 15 year old girl. Wondering what state this happened in?

Of course, most would think it's Florida. But alas, it's in the great state of Texas. By the way, this woman has ties to Florida, Minnesota and Alabama. So Florida isn't off the hook, yet!

Longview, Texas woman will be seeing the judge soon on the charges of misdemeanor mistrust.

31-year old Charity Anne Johnson was booked in county lockup for giving false information/fictitious identity.

Longview residents weren't aware that Johnson had been enrolled at an East Texas high school. The New Life Christian School had her enrolled since October under the name Charity Stevens. She had given the school identification that indicated she was 15.

KLTV reports Johnson tricked a family into taking her into their home and becoming her guardian.
Charity Anne Johnson
County lockup mugshot of Charity Johnson aka Charity Stevens.
"I sympathized with her, and invited her into my home,” Tamica Lincoln told the TV station. “I took her in as a child, did her hair, got her clothes and shoes..."

Lincoln said Johnson told her she had come from an abusive home and that both of her parents had passed away.

"Teachers were crying and students were crying, and her best friend just couldn't believe it,” Lincoln told KLTV.

She's in the Gregg County lockup on a $500 get out free card.

I don't know what her deal was, but she could have been a sexual predator if she was to engage with sexual contact with any of her now former classmates.

Man this is really crazy, she was really 34 years old. Not 31. This is truly a mental case.

Paralyzed Athlete Becomes NFL Player!

Devon Walker is now a New Orleans Saint.

Paralyzed athlete Devon Walker got an opportunity to be a NFL player. In a symbolic move, the former safety from Tulane University was honored to be a part of the NFC South team.

Newser reports Devon Walker had a pretty big day yesterday, graduating Tulane University within hours of landing an NFL contract with the New Orleans Saints. Adding to Walker's feat: He's wheelchair bound and uses a ventilator, after having been paralyzed from the neck down in a 2012 on-field collision. That devastating accident doesn't appear to have slowed the former safety down much: As ESPN reports, Walker has fashioned himself into an inspiration and leader for Tulane's Green Wave.

"I didn't have to do any pregame speeches at home because he did them all," says Tulane coach Curtis Johnson, a former Saints coach. "He policed the locker room. This kid deserves it all. He's very inspirational. Man, I love the kid." Saints coach Sean Payton says Walker has been "an inspiration to our region, to our community, New Orleans, the Tulane family, and it's carried over to us on the Saints." Walker, a Louisiana native, is no less effusive, saying, "I've been a Saint since before I was walking. Just to be a part of this team, just to be around the players is more than I could have hoped."
