The King of The Nuts (Again)!

Son of a nut, Rand Paul wins the CPAC straw poll again!

Sometimes, I wonder why CPAC even matters. They end up getting a straw poll winner but end up with a candidate that not even conservative enough for them. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) won the straw poll for the third time.

Obviously, the Republicans and the insurgency loves Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, but every damn time the CPAC straw polls comes out, here comes Paul as the winner of the straw poll, yet again! 

This is a good thing for the controversial stallmigo. He can brag that he's the most conservative candidate for the Republicans. But you ask his supporters, what has he done while in the senate?

He's been in the U.S. Senate for nearly four years and during his time, he's accomplished nothing. 

I can't really tell you what bills he introduced or sponsored since his time in the U.S. Senate. I'll have to find out what major bill or accomplishment Paul's done. 

Paul and fellow Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) are bombastic agitators who in my opinion belong on AM radio. They are not looked as serious candidates for the Republican nomination. 

I couldn't support these nutbags. They will never have the opportunity to be inside the White House.

Paul, the son of former congressman and presidential nominee Ron Paul is just as annoying as his daddy. The Paul supporters flood every conservative/libertarian event and buy the votes. 

They advocate this notion that a relatively no accomplished lawmaker surge to the top. 

I don't have nothing against Paul for winning, but seriously? 

Does this win says something about CPAC? 

Kid Rock: _______ Beyonce And Obama!

Rocker Kid Rock kicks off a feud with Queen Bey.

Back in the hey days, Kid Rock was once a rapper. Now he's converted to a rebel rocker who talks shit like Hank Williams, Jr. and Ted Nugent. As he preparing for his album First Kiss, he manages to express himself without being arrested for lewd conduct.

Kid Rock  is a proud Republican and hides no feelings towards President Barack Obama and Queen Bey.

S. Baldwin had posted yesterday about the rocker making controversial statements about the president and Beyonce. He was in the RollingStone Magazine ranting off about how Beyonce's album sales fucked his album releases.

The rocker allowed Mitt Romney's presidential campaign to officially make use of his music in campaign events, using his song "Born Free".

Kid Rock later endorsed Mitt Romney's candidacy and performed on Romney's behalf at campaign events. By May 2012, Kid Rock was still the first of a handful of high-profile musicians to endorse Mitt Romney, including Ted Nugent and Lee Greenwood. Kid Rock performed alongside Lynyrd Skynyrd and Trace Adkins at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. He introduced Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, at a rally in Michigan in October 2012; Ryan went onstage to "Bawitdaba".
Rebel Rocker pissed off Bey's fans.

A former fixture of Detroit, the rocker now flexes his conservative roots in Red State America.

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the singer detailed why he's "flabbergasted" by the intense Beyoncé fandom. "Beyoncé, to me, doesn't have a fucking 'Purple Rain,' but she's the biggest thing on Earth," he said. "How can you be that big without at least one 'Sweet Home Alabama' or 'Old Time Rock & Roll'?"

His criticism quickly turned to not understanding the physical attraction to the singer. "People are like, 'Beyoncé's hot. Got a nice fucking ass.' I'm like 'Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.' Doesn't really fucking do much for me."

Fans of the "Drunk in Love" singer, known as the 'Beyhive,' have taken to social media to vent their frustrations with Rock and anger towards his criticisms. All of his recent Instagram pictures have been flooded with thousands of comments from super-fans with icons and usernames referencing Beyoncé.
Brush it off. 
While some of the comments are just a marker of presence — users simply posting the bee emoji or "#Beyhive" — others have turned personal and violent. "I HOPE KID ROCK MOM GETS GANG RAPED AND CATCHES AIDS AND DIES," reads one such note on a picture of Rock at the Today show.

"You ain't shit even to this day," says another. "Who are you? And why are you 70 [and] still being called a kid?"

Rock recently released his 10th studio album, First Kiss. As noted in the profile, Rock received a controversial NAACP award in 2011. The Detroit chapter honored him with the Great Expectations award while many members protested the singer for his heavy use of Confederate flag imagery.

It's a goddamn shame that even the NAACP gives this guy an award. Kind of like Donald Sterling but without the basketball team.



Anthony Mason Dead At 48.......





Rest in peace.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Kills Family In Ohio!

CO incident leaves 2 sisters dead in Troy
Dejah Bishop, her sister and cousin died in a carbon monoxide poisoning.

In Troy, Ohio located 20 miles from Dayton, four children were poisoned by carbon monoxide poisoning. Two of the children passed away Friday, and we here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of 13 year old Dejah and 14 year old Dioanna Bishop.

UPDATE: We learned that 13 year old Jakia Jones has passed away. We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to her family as well.

These two young girls were with their two cousins in a home that had a faulty furnace. During that winter month, people use the heat. And I guess the odorless and colorless gas escaped and the sleeping children didn't wake up.
CO incident leaves 2 sisters dead in Troy
Dioanna Bishop.
8 year old Jahari Ward is the only victim left. He is in critical condition. The young children were found by another family member. And to make matters worse, their grandmother is in the hospital for health issues.

This tragedy is horrible and the Dayton Daily News is still getting information about what happen and if any charges are going to be filed in this.

Miami County Sheriff and Troy Police are working on this.

The police said they don’t know if the children had gone to school Friday. They were in the house and someone came home and found them unresponsive and called for help, Anderson said. Medics and police at the scene performed CPR.

Leonard Nimoy Dead At 83......





Rest in Peace.



Here's the obituary from the New York Times for Mr. Nimoy:



"Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.



His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.



Mr. Nimoy announced last year that he had the disease, attributing it to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.



His artistic pursuits — poetry, photography and music in addition to acting — ranged far beyond the United Federation of Planets, but it was as Mr. Spock that Mr. Nimoy became a folk hero, bringing to life one of the most indelible characters of the last half century: a cerebral, unflappable, pointy-eared Vulcan with a signature salute and blessing: “Live long and prosper” (from the Vulcan “Dif-tor heh smusma”).

CNUTS 2015

Republican governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker wows the crowd at CPAC 2015. The governor will play to the base with this "I don't know who Obama is"... nonsense. He's thinking about putting on the makeup and getting into the clown car.

The American Conservative Union hosts the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

CPAC gets major attention.

So far it's off to a great start. Obviously the racist right will continue their march to obscurity. The conservative agitators and Republican lawmakers head to the Sheraton Hotel in Washington, DC to contemplate a strategy for 2016.

Some of the low lives who came. Make sure you pay close attention to what they say. Because you want to play a drinking game when you listen to them.

Donald Trump



That annoying conservative agitator.



Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin.



Stallmigo Ted Cruz (R-TX)



Dr. Benjamin Carson.



Newt Gingrich.



That former governor of Alaska



Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.



Phil Robertson of A&E's Duck Dynasty



The word vomit. Remember each of these lawmakers and agitators share one thing in common: They say the same shit that annoying conservative agitator says. It's like listening to AM radio. They would be out of business once Obama leaves office.

You gotta hand to the nuts, they're dropping right outta of the damn tree! They are Obama obsessed agitators and have no chance at ever winning an election. But if they actually nominate one of these nuts or embrace these agitators of the junk food media, they're going to lose.

But of course, if they want to go after President Barack Obama, do your thing!

Cause you've already lost the Black vote. How many others will the Republicans jeopardize in their quest for the White House?

Kid Rock Attacks Beyonce.....

Lupita Nyong'o Got Her $150K Dress Lifted!

Beauty does cost a $150,000. Lupita Nyong'o dress got lifted from her hotel room.

Uh, no.. NO, NO, NO!

What the......well you know!

A famed actress who won an Oscar for best female role got a very expensive dress lifted from her while she was partying with other celebs.

$150,000 pearl-adorned dress Lupita Nyong'o wore to this year's Academy Awards has been stolen. Deputies responded to a West Hollywood hotel late yesterday after the custom Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa dress was reported missing from the actress's hotel room, said sheriff's Sgt. Richard Bowman. Representatives for the actress reported the theft, and detectives suspect the garment was stolen sometime between 8 and 9pm yesterday.

Detectives were at the hotel today looking for clues, including whether surveillance footage would reveal what happened to the gown. Nyong'o won an Oscar in 2014 for her role in Twelve Years a Slave and was a presenter at Sunday's ceremony. Her publicists said today they would not comment on the theft. Nyong'o, 31, has become a darling of Hollywood's red carpets in the past two years, with commentators and fans praising her fashion choices.

I guess tonight, it was found. The thief had second thoughts. The thief claims the dress was "fake".

Reuters report that the $150,000 Oscar gown worn by actress Lupita Nyong'o that was stolen two days ago was returned on Friday by the thief, who tipped off celebrity news site TMZ.com after finding out that the pearls on the dress were fake.

TMZ said the thief took the Calvin Klein dress from Nyong'o's hotel room on Wednesday after finding the door ajar. The Kenyan actress had worn the dress adorned with 6,000 pearls to Sunday's Academy Awards in one of the most commented looks of the night.

The thief and others removed two pearls from the dress and took them to the Garment District in downtown Los Angeles where they were told they were not real, according to TMZ.

The thief then took the dress back to the London West Hollywood hotel and told TMZ it was in a garment bag inside a trash bag in a bathroom.

TMZ then tipped off the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in West Hollywood, which was investigating the theft. The website shows grainy footage of an unidentified person opening the bag and finding a white dress.

Holder Leaves Swing!

No apologies. Holder will eventually retire once Republicans confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor for Attorney General of the United States.

The Senate will finally confirm the successor to Attorney General Eric Holder.

Lorretta Lynch will get a label in the coming days. Obviously this choice will certainly become a target of Republicans in the coming years. Of course, being a Black woman is enough ammo for the Republicans to attack her character.

It may take up about 52 senators (or 60) based on the Republican Majority Leader Mitch The Turtle (R-KY) rules to confirm Lynch. The stallmigos Rand Paul (R-KY), Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Tim Scott (R-SC) and Mike Lee (R-UT) will probably vote against it.

Like every other outgoing member of the Obama administration, some will go to networks to focus on their achievements and what the successor should do to make things better.

Holder, pretty much said, good luck to Lynch, she's gonna need it!

Holder isn't apologizing to Republicans. He's practically saying the party is in dire straights. It's doomed to failure. And being led by a tabloid news outlet like Loserville is even worse imagined.

Holder will speak on GOP Sundays. He will talk to NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and The Politico. But absent is Loserville. He will not speak to the smirking chimp Chris Wallace, Megyn The Outrage Princess or Bret Beir.

Loserville fired back at him.
The network isn't too keen on Holder and President Barack Obama. 
“We learned today that Attorney General Eric Holder has conducted interviews with ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and Politico, while excluding FOX News. The Attorney General’s decision does a deep disservice to America’s largest cable news audience and the interests of a free press. Ultimately, however, we’re not surprised that Holder would try to evade a thorough accounting of his record in office, including his decision to investigate our Chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen through an illegal seizure of emails and phone records of Rosen and his parents. Late today, the DOJ press office said ‘they look forward to accommodating’ FOX News at a future time. We’re hopeful but realistic about whether that will actually happen.”

Michael Clemente is none too happy that the outgoing AG is blowing Loserville off.

I guess this is the bad taste that Holder leaves for Republicans and Loserville.

Holder said that Loserville would have nothing to complain about once he's gone. After all, they're focused on Benghazi, Fast & Furious and radical Islam.

Count on Holder being mentioned for years to come. Obviously that annoying conservative agitator will continue to find some reason to jam him in.

Mo'Nique On The Ban List!

Mo'Nique got banned from Hollywood. Lee Daniels confirms that the Oscar award winning actress/comedian got shafted for being too much of a diva.

Empire is a big hit.

The Lee Daniels drama featuring Terrance Howard and Taraj P Henson is growing in viewership. For the latest episode, it drew 15.4 million viewers. This is one of the biggest success for the Fox network.

Lee Daniels also was the producer for Precious, a movie that featured Gabourey Sidibe, Mo'Nique, Paula Patton, and Mariah Carey. This film marked the acting debut of Sidibe.

Sidibe is a featured guest on Empire.

Mariah Carey who is known by most to be a diva is being blackballed from movies. Joining her is the comedian and Oscar award winning actress Mo'Nique.

Mo'Nique who is one of the "Queens of Comedy" starred in the UPN sitcom The Parkers and her late night show on BET.
Lee Daniels, the producer of The Butler, Precious and television series Empire.
Mo'Nique is a diva. She doesn't apologize for being self confident and determined. But in Hollywood, if you're too much of a diva, you're going to be shut out of the industry. And it seems to follow a deep trend of Black entertainers being doomed after success.

The entertainer talked to Inside Edition to tell her fans that she's doing "fine". She was telling the reporter that Lee Daniels told her that movie executives are "done" with her.

Lee Daniels put it in simple terms: Mo'Nique was too much of a headache. She would make demands and throw around the Black. She couldn't figure the politics of Hollywood. She got shut down.

Although Lee Daniels praised her for her talents, he said that she self-inflicted herself. It's not his fault. He didn't throw her under the bus.
Empire
Empire is the money maker for the time being.
Mo'Nique fired back. “It wasn’t that I was blackballed like Mr. Daniels said… the phone was ringing and the scripts were coming but the offers that were associated with them made me say ‘I can’t accept that,’” she explained, adding that taking such offers would have sent a negative message to other African-American women.

“If we continue to accept these low offers, how do we make a change?” she asked.

It seems like this is a feud. Mo'Nique believes Daniels told executives that she's trouble.

And with that said, here's the video of Mo'Nique responding to the controversy

Empire is on Fox and it's a go! They already got this green light for a second season. It will finish the season with 10 episodes.



Insurgent Lawmakers Wants DC Mayor Locked Up For Endorsing Marijuana!

The insurgents want DC mayor Muriel Bowser locked up for advocating weed in her town.

Two insurgent lawmakers are pissed that District of Columbia residents passed a legislation allowing marijuana use in the nation's capital.

The District of Columbia and Alaska joins Colorado and Washington as places where you can light up some ounces of weed. The marijuana is legal in three and one federal district now.

Some lawmakers aren't keen on it. DC is technically ran by Congress. They control the spending and ordinances in the district.

Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Andy Harris (R-MD) have threatened to take Washington, DC Mayor to the federal time out for advocating it.
Insurgent lawmaker Jason Chaffetz (R-UT)
Muriel Bowser, the Democratic mayor (semi-governor) has ignored the threats. The Nation reports that Bowser and the District’s police chief announced earlier in the day that the city would move on the legalization measure, despite Congress’s disapproval. Voters approved Initiative 71 by a huge margin in November, but a month later federal lawmakers inserted a rider into the budget bill intended to prevent the city from using any funds to implement it or to set up a system for taxing and regulating marijuana sales. Doing so would be a violation of the Anti-Deficiency Act, which forbids DC from spending money that was not appropriated by Congress.

City officials, including Attorney General Karl Racine, argue that the rider doesn’t actually bar them from implementing Initiative 71, because the ballot measure was already certified by the time Congress voted. According to their interpretation, the rider does prevent the District from loosing drug laws any further. Based on this understanding, the City council canceled a hearing on taxing and regulating marijuana earlier in February, after Racine warned that council members and their staff could face fines and jail time if they took part.
Go Green.
Chaffetz’s threat, on the other hand, is hot air. Violating the Anti-Deficiency Act does carry civil and criminal penalties but, sadly for them, lawmakers like Chaffetz have little power to enforce it. (Chaffetz’s office did not return a request to clarify how implementing Initiative 71 could lead to jail time for city officials.) The Obama administration—specifically, the Department of Justice—would have to initiate prosecution. That’s hard to imagine, in light of the president’s statements in support of the legalization initiative—although it’s possible that a anti-marijuana presidential candidate could be elected in 2016 and initiate legal action against the city at that point. Chaffetz played coy when asked if he might sue the city— “It’s in the law; it’s crystal clear,” is all he told the Post— but Representative Mark Meadows, one of the other Republicans trying to block the measure, said “there’s no talk of litigation.” Instead, he issued a vague threat having to do with the District’s ability to get congressional approval for future, unrelated measures

Did The West Call Out The Islamic State Spokesman?

Do they even know who this guy is? 

The U.S. and Brits outed the man who posed in the Islamic State videos. Last time, I thought they've outed a British rapper as the spokesperson Now it's a computer programmer. Seriously, who is the guy?

I highly doubt their credibility on this one.

Allegedly the man who often is a fixture to public assassination videos is a Kuwaiti-born Briton who grew up in West London. Coming from a well-off family and got a degree in the computers.

I am guessing he probably produced those videos for recruitment.

Anyway, Jihad John is reportedly known as Mohammed Emwazi. Not confirmed nor denied, the junk food media outed the guy who puts knife to the head of Westerners.

The Republicans and their allies on the racist right are spooked by "radical Islam". They are pissed that the president isn't calling it "radical".

In Brooklyn, three men were charged with aiding material support for Islamic State.

This stuff doesn't scare me.

Two reasons.

The junk food media is looking for ratings. What's better than scaring up folks with videos of masked men with firearms trying to look like American soldiers?

The government told us numerous times to be vigilant and report suspicious activity. Obviously people can't understand that the best tool to defeat them is ignore them. The media is giving them attention by promoting videos and the pictures of hostages being beheaded or burned alive.

Give me a reason to fear the terrorist.

The Western take on the Islamic State.

Hannity: John Legend And Common Are Just As Radical As Obama!

When hip-hop wins, conservatives scream. Common and John Legend won an Oscar. One conservative agitator who is obsessed with President Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright is attacking them.

As proven, I knew with according timing that annoying conservative agitator would take a dig at John Legend and Common after accepting their Oscar for Original Best Score in a motion picture.

He and C.O.R.E.'s Niger Innis both launch into this rancid attack on John Legend.



That agitator complained that Legend "decided to make all things political." Even though Legend didn't explicitly bring up voter ID laws in his speech, The agitator went on to suggest that it was inappropriate for Legend to "equate the Voting Rights Act with showing an ID to get to vote so we can keep honesty and integrity in our elections ... I like John Legend as a musician, but he doesn't know anything about politics":
This agitator is so annoying. He is the worst cable news host in American media.
Of course, the annoying conservative agitator claims that it's not racist that Republicans want stricter voter ID laws. The agitator invoked Jeremiah Wright again in attacking Common.

Back in 2011, that fool was ranting about Common attending the White House. The agitator went off on Common by saying he's a "cop killer" and claimed that President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama should be investigated for allowing this "criminal" into the White House.

Common is a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ. The church became the scapegoat for the Jeremiah Wright controversy. This conservative agitator and many others continue to invoke Wright every time a controversy about race comes forth. A way to red meat their racist supporters.

The folks over at Media Matters is preparing for more outrageous comments from that annoying conservative agitator. He's in Washington, DC prepping for his CPAC speech. He's certainly going to bring up the word vomit.

I betcha that in five minutes, you'll hear "radical ______", "Obama", "Hillary", "liberal", "Jeremiah Wright", "Bill Ayers", "vacations", "golfing", "Ronald Reagan" and "Benjamin Netanyuhu" in his CPAC speech. It's pretty much his radio show and television program in a speech.

Drake Is Slaying The Brown Tyga In Sales!

If you're hearing the news, Drake has dominated the charts. Slaying Chris Brown and Tyga subliminally and financially.

And Drake just dropped the mic on Tyga and Chris Brown.

Billboard reports that singles featuring Drake and his singles of the mixtape/album If You're Reading This Its Too Late are charting.

Billboard reports that all 17 songs on the mixtape are charting on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, breaking the previous record of 14 which he matched a week ago. The rapper now has a total of 21 songs on the chart after adding four other songs that he is featured on, an unprecedented feat for any artist.

No. 4 - "Only," Nicki Minaj featuring Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown
No. 5 - "Truffle Butter," Nicki Minaj, featuring Drake & Lil Wayne
No. 9 - "Energy"
No. 16 - "Tuesday," iLOVEMAKONNEN, featuring Drake
No. 17 - "Legend" 
No. 19 - "10 Bands"
No. 22 - "Blessings," Big Sean, featuring Drake 
No. 23 – "Know Yourself" (Debut)
No. 26 - "No Tellin'"
No. 27 - "Preach," featuring PartyNextDoor
No. 28 – "6 God" (Debut)
No. 29 - "Used To," featuring Lil Wayne 
No. 32 - "Now & Forever" 
No. 34 - "6 Man"
No. 38 - "Jungle"
No. 39 - "Star67" (Debut)
No. 40 – "Madonna" (Debut)

No. 43 - "Wednesday Night Interlude" featuring PartyNextDoor (Debut)
No. 45 - "6PM In New York"
No. 49 - "You & The 6" (Debut)

Drake is due to go platinum with this album. A surprise release to spar with the Tyga/Chris Brown release Fan of a Fan. Their album is the first release since Tyga distanced himself from YMCMB.

Tyga is on the verge of being "fired out the cannon" with Young Money/Cash Money.

The family feud has gotten even more nastier. But who's benefiting from this?

Aubrey "Drake" Graham who is worth an estimated $50 million. And while Chris Brown pulls in a healthy $23 million in sales, Tyga is not even in the league.
Tyga and Chris Brown ain't gonna like the news that rival Drake is beating them.
I'm clowning on T-Raw. The Compton rapper hasn't learned the business yet. He's talking like every other ignorant rapper out there who seeks attention. He doesn't understand who he's dealing with. He bit the hand that fed him. And now he's being blackballed. 

Like the Game and 50 situation, Drake went out his way to help Tyga get airplay. Drake actually promotes his fellow artists on Young Money/Cash Money and OVO Sound. 

Drake put Tyga on The Motto. And this is the gratitude....calling him "fake". Calling him a "weirdo".

Threatening him on the internet after you instigated the feud....Real classy.

T-Raw is already catching flack for dating Kylie Jenner, the daughter of Bruce Jenner, former athlete and now transgender activist. 

His pathetic feud with Drake is like Benzino feuding with Eminem. It's a one sided battle and most already knows who won this.

Drake may be overrated as an entertainer. So what? 

He's putting out hits and moving into territory that once held for legends. 

The 1980s In 20XX!

Disney is bringing back DuckTales. 

The days of afternoon cartoon syndication and the Saturday morning cartoon are gone. Long gone.

Hollywood is really running out of ideas. The Today Show hosts were joyful over Disney's reviving of DuckTales. The Carl Banks comic was made into a television series that aired in syndication on local markets.

Now 30 years later, DisneyXD is proud to announce that it will host the series. The series will be a reboot and its planned for a 2017 debut.

The TV series featured Duckburg's richest mogul Scrooge McDuck. McDuck would often find treasures and adventure. He would usually have his three nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie accompany him on these adventures. On some occasions their uncle Donald Duck would join them.

It also featured Launchpad McQuack who later became a main character on the series Darkwing Duck during the later years. DuckTales had over 100 episodes and one motion picture movie.

They actually are planning on reviving some of American cartoon classics.

I really must be a television nerd. Because I grew up in the 1980s watching these shows.

I really believe that in this decade, most children can watch this stuff on their phones and electronic devices. They don't have to see it on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW.

They can find some this stuff on the many the Disney Channels, The Hub and Cartoon Network.

They can actually get it on Hulu, Netflix, internet torrents, and bootleg.

Television networks had to obey the federal mandates and offer educational program. They couldn't afford the billing for cartoons and their sugary cereal commercials. So in September 2014, The CW ended its cartoon programs and joined the others with this Litton bullshit.

The McDonald's commercials are gone too. The fast food giant is suffering in sales and had to semi-retire Ronald McDonald for a creepy box called Happy.

Seriously, This Is Real: A Quarter Of Republicans Think Obama Hates America!

The carnival barkers think President Barack Obama hates America. Sometimes you got to laugh at the Republicans and conservative agitators. They proven to be even more stupider than I've thought.

The dog whistle is blowing and the lips are moist.... Republicans are looking for their opportunity to take back the White House. But since they're still stuck on the past as they continue to trash President Barack Obama instead of throwing out better ideas.

Thumb through a check and cash it out. The Republican Party is morally bankrupt.

Saying that our American president hates his country is pretty much the definition of "hating" your country. You can disagree with the president on policy. But the relentless name calling and pseudo-patriotism by some in the junk food media makes you really think less of them rather the president.

This is the type of stuff that makes you cynical of politicians, the media and of course America.

It all began with that simpleton Rudy Giuliani speaking at a Republican donors rally for potential clown car candidate Wisconsin governor Scott Walker. He stated openly that President Obama doesn't love America like most of them. Of course, this became the click bait that will not go away.

Republicans are split on whether they want to support the comments or throw Giuliani back to the waste bin of failed politicians.

Many Republicans like Representatives Darrell Issa (R-CA), Mo Brooks (R-AL) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) are very supportive of that simpleton. Even a 13 year old claimed that Giuliani was on point.

The Huffington Post/YouGov has the goods on Republicans and their opinion of Obama loving America.



Pitiful.

This is the country we live in.....

Seriously, what the fuck? You telling me that 85% of Democrats, 11% of Republicans and 42% of independents believe Barack Obama loves America.

That means if you add 42 (I) + 11 (R) = 53. You divide it by 2 and you have 26% of Americans roughly a quarter of Americans believe that the first Black president hate America.

Americans are similarly divided along party lines on whether they think Obama believes the U.S. is exceptional, and on whether he's more or less patriotic than most people. Republicans overwhelmingly say he's less patriotic, while Democrats say he's as patriotic or more, and independents are split.

Even sad that even Democrats say this stuff too. I mean Kentucky, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Arkansas, and Mississippi Democrats who are White question the president. These Democrats vote Republican regardless of the situation.

This stuff kicks off at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The CPAC event is going to be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Washington, DC and among the speakers are the usual nuts and a few politicos. The American Conservative Union hosts their straw poll on who's the potential Republican presidential nominee in their opinion.

The nut farm includes speakers:

That annoying conservative agitator of Loserville and iHeartRadio Media.
The former Alaskan governor, activist and reality star
Benjamin Carson, former neurosurgeon
Wayne LaPierre, NRA vice president and spokesman
Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker and 2012 presidential candidate
Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas
Mark "Rat Face" Levin, conservative agitator from Cumulus Media.
Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana
John Bolton, former United Nations ambassador
Tom Cotton, U.S. Senator from Arkansas (Stallmigo)
Rand Paul, U.S. Senator from Kentucky (Stallmigo)
Donald Trump, real estate mogul and reality star
Marsha Blackburn, U.S. Representative from Tennessee
Brent Bozell, activist and TV critic
Ann Marie Buerkle, former U.S. Representative from New York
Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida
Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator from Texas (Stallmigo)
Carly Fiorina, former U.S. Senate candidate and business mogul
Laura Ingraham, conservative agitator from Courtside Media
KT McFarland, conservative activist
Oops, former governor from Texas
Marco Rubio, U.S. Senator from Florida (Stallmigo)
Rick Santorum, former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania and 2012 presidential candidate
Tim Scott, U.S. Senator from South Carolina (Stallmigo)
Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin

This is the tentative list of nuts in the farm. Who will be the most controversial?

It will be covered.

Betcha that most of these agitators and politicos will question the president's patriotism, birth certificate and religion!

Pathetic.

Pimp My Career!

Pimp My Ride may come back to MTV. The Huffington Post opens up some of the secrets of this once successful show.

The MTV show featuring rapper Xzibit was one popular show back then. Long after it's been pulled off the roster, many accusations come forth that the reality show is actually fake.

Wow. Should I be surprised?

The Huffington Post has a report about some of the contestants of Pimp My Ride being ringers.

Not saying that most of the contestants are fake, but a few of them came forth to thank MTV and Xzibit for giving them an opportunity to promote their companies and their new whips.

Never discredit a show for what it does. It's reality television. Often you should expect this.

I wouldn't think much of this if I didn't think I could get a chance to "pimp my ride".

The ACORN Pimp James O'Keefe Targets Rev. Perm And Eric Garner's Family!

Rev. Perm accused by the racist right of being a "shakedown artist". They have proof. The ACORN pimp James O'Keefe hires a woman to go undercover to talk to family members of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner.

If anyone is dumb enough to fall victim to a racial prank by ACORN pimp James O'Keefe, then you deserve to be shamed by the racist right.

I would never want to interact with someone who tries to "befriend" me. I am very cautious about certain people.

Obviously, this turd still on federal probation hasn't given up on the exposing liberal hypocrisy bandwagon. This round involves the victims of police brutality and vigilante justice. And of course, their old enemy, Rev. Perm.

Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin were extremely controversial by the standards of junk food media coverage. The junk food media focused on every aspect of what happened and gave the public an opportunity to spin these men's deaths. See the racist right will slander and dehumanize their names and shrine the ones who killed them.

One of Eric Garner's daughters was caught on tape saying that Rev. Perm is all about the money and not the cause.

A member of O’Keefe’s team spoke with the late Eric Garner’s oldest daughter, Erica, on a brisk January evening in Staten Island. Garner did not hold back when asked about Rev. Perm’s involvement, stating: “he’s about the money.”

Garner, who has become a passionate champion for social change following the death of her father, accused Rev. Perm and his National Action Network of “attacking” her for not giving them credit; and trying to capitalize on her father’s death. “Instead of me, he wants his face in front of them,” said Garner of Rev. Perm.
The ACORN Pimp James O'Keefe strikes again.
Garner was visibly angered at Rev. Perm and the National Action Network. Indeed, rather than help, Garner felt as if Rev. Perm and NAN were trying to take advantage of her:  “Rev. Perm paid for the funeral. She’s [Cynthia Davis, President of the Staten Island Chapter of NAN] trying to make me feel like I owe them,” a statement that shocked one of Garner’s friends who was speaking with Erica and a Project Veritas journalist.

In Florida, a Project Veritas investigative journalist spoke with Tracy Martin, the father of the late Trayvon Martin, at a banquet for the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Martin quickly distanced himself from Rev. Perm, stating: “he’s on his own personal mission.”

Troy Wright, the President and Executive Director of the Trayvon Martin Foundation, further distanced Martin’s family and the Martin Foundation from Rev. Perm. When asked about Rev. Perm and NAN, Wright responded “that’s a sore subject with us right now.” Indeed, all traces of Rev. Perm and NAN have recently been removed from the Foundation’s website.

Wright also strongly insinuated to Project Veritas that a decision had been made not to invite Rev. Perm to a recent Foundation banquet.

O’Keefe’s team also spoke with prominent leaders in Ferguson, who were sharply critical of Rev. Perm. Bishop Calvin Scott, whose personal dealings with Rev. Perm in the aftermath of the Michael Brown tragedy left him critical of the MSNBC host, told Project Veritas that he “incites people for the wrong reason,” that he gets people “all fired up,” and that is “not the way you want to go.” Bishop Scott went as far as to place partial blame on Rev. Perm for inciting violence in Ferguson: pointedly stating “when you have a fuse that is already lit, you don’t need to add no more fire to it.”

When asked if Rev. Perm used the Michael Brown controversy to raise money, Bishop Scott told a Project Veritas journalist “you’re not the first person to raise that question… someone in the higher up that even mentioned… the history of an Al Sharpton, and an organization such as him, and they emphatically stated that… for them, knowing their history, it’s about money.”
Erica Garner who was caught on tape saying Rev. Perm shakes down for profit.
Stacy Garner (no relation to Eric or Erica Garner) of Ferguson Christian Church told another member of O’Keefe’s team that he believed Rev. Perm was exploiting the Michael Brown tragedy for his own profit and that “instead of bringing us together, I think he was drawing us apart.”

“Rev. Perm’s perception of himself is a far cry from how he is perceived by the families and communities he thrust himself upon,” stated James O’Keefe. “By all accounts, Rev. Perm appears to be abusing the bully pulpit given to him by MSNBC to capitalize on tragedies. It was quite apparent from the number of individuals we spoke to that Rev. Perm's views tragedies as opportunities, and that he is willing to do whatever it takes to further his personal agenda.”

This is one of the many accusations thrown at the Obama News agitator and founder of the National Action Network president. Most conservatives and Republicans believe that Rev. Perm is a "shake down" artist and is a tax cheat.

That annoying conservative agitator who often debates Rev. Perm was gleeful about this latest bombshell.

Rev. Perm is being sued along with Comcast by some conservative black group.

The complaint, filed in California on Friday, comes from the National Association of African-American Owned Media, which also filed a similar suit against AT&T and DirecTV in December.

This time, the plaintiff is not only targeting both Comcast and TWC — on the eve of the two companies merging to become what would be the largest pay television distributor in the United States — but also various African-American advocacy groups and Rev. Perm for allegedly facilitating discrimination.

By the way, George Zimmerman will not face federal civil rights charges. The Department of Justice dropped its charges against the controversial Florida man. Zimmerman was the central figure in the February 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. Since being free, he's been in the news over 20 times for some stupid controversy.

Erica Garner also had a brief share of controversy too. She had posted offensive comments about the NYPD and leaked the address of the officer who placed her dad in the fatal stranglehold.

Chris Brown Blames Drake For Him And Tyga Being Denied Entry To Canada!

Chris Brown and Tyga had to cancel concerts in Canada. Brown was denied entry to Canada. I'll betcha they'll blame Drake and Bryan "Birdman" Williams of Cash Money Records for their shortcomings.


Breezy was denied entry into the neighbor of the North. He must obtain special clearance if he is to perform in Canada. Unfortunately, this string of bad luck continues to plague the troubled, nearly washed up pop singer, rapper, celebrity agitator.

The singer tweeted yesterday, "The good people of the Canadian government wouldn't allow me entry," the New York Daily News reports, though that tweet has since been deleted. Concert promoter Live Nation later announced that "due to immigration issues," Brown's concerts (last night in Montreal and tonight in Toronto) have been canceled, the AP reports. Canada Border Services wouldn't comment on Brown's case specifically, but a spokesman said immigration officials use several factors to decide whether to allow entry, and criminal activity is one of those factors. Brown, of course, spent almost three months in jail last year for violating his probation, which he was on after assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

The Canadian government says Brown can apply to enter the country at a later date, and in his tweet, Brown noted that he has plans to return this summer. Brown's criminal record has previously gotten him barred from the UK, a snafu that forced him to cancel four concerts.

He and his best buddy Tyga (Michael Nyguen Stevenson) are promoting their collaboration album Fan of a Fan. They are also promoting their feud with native Canadian rapper/singer/entertainer Aubrey "Drake" Graham. They openly dissed Drake on albums and mixtapes.

Drake released his fourth album and addressed his feud with Tyga and Brown.

Tyga (left) and Chris Brown (right) release their debut collaboration album.
Since late October, the Cash Money/Young Money family has seen an internal feud spill out into the junk food media. It began when Tyga went on record to call Drake "fake" and says that he doesn't give two fucks about him and Nicki Minaj. Then Bryan "Birdman" Williams got fed up with the business being put out on the streets. He decided to put Tyga's album out to pasture and move Nicki Minaj's album to December.

Then in November, the hancho of Young Money Lil' Wayne took to Twitter to vent off frustration with Cash Money delaying his latest album. The album's release date is right  now in the unknown, and Weezy F Baby openly went forth to say that he'll sue the label for delaying his album.

Williams, the CEO of Cash Money/Rich Gang has taken interest in Chris Brown, newcomers Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug. He wants to promote these three acts on the Rich Gang label, ignoring the Cash Money roster and putting his top act to the back burner.

McCain And Graham Are Senile And The Junk Food Media Continues To Allow Them On!

Sitting comfortably. These two are often the junk food media's experts on foreign policy in the world. They're not experts. They throw their shit at the wall and hope it sticks.

GOP Sundays are John McCain and Lindsey Graham's hangout. These two geezers continue to beat their chest and throw their shit at the president over his strategy to combat the Islamic State.

The flabby senator from Arizona got his ass beat in 2008. Why are the agitators still allowing this flip-flopping inconsistent scum on their programs?

Senator John McCain has no credibility whatsoever. He picked the moron from Alaska as his running mate. Enough said. He has no business giving advice on how to deal with military action overseas.

Gomer Pyle is thinking about getting into the clown car. Graham is often bitching about how President Barack Obama's refusal to say "radical Islam". He's claiming that the country could be blown up in second. The usual word vomit of fear and chickenshit.

McCain and Graham are senile. They both are discredited lawmakers.

Another thing, McCain said that he's ashamed of his country, the president and the situation in Ukraine.

Wondering if that simpleton Rudy Giuliani will question the patriotism of McCain?

Islamophobia is one of the common tactics of the racist right. Republican lawmakers and conservative agitators are playing the only card they got. The FEAR card. It's getting old and I am seriously hoping that they'll overcome this obsession with the Islamic State.

If we didn't go to war in Iraq, we wouldn't be in this mess. President Barack Obama is considering military action in Iraq. The Iraqi military were scared off by the Islamic State. Now the U.S. has to retrain other men to die for a worthless cause.

McCain, Graham and the rest of the noise machine are pussies. They fear man.....

Real men don't fear the unknown. They embrace it.



Marie Holmes: I Gotta Be Humble, My Kids Are The Winners!

Holmes said she originally bought five tickets for a total $15 before the lottery was announced. She later bought five more in homes of winning the jackpot
The winner of Powerball comes forward. She shows her ticket to the junk food media. Notice that most lottery experts believe that "quick picks" are the way to winning. The winning numbers are located on line D.

The record Powerball jackpot winner steps forwards to claim her share. She is actually putting her face out there to explain her struggles and the miracle of being a single mom and now a jackpot winner.

Marie Holmes of North Carolina was one of the three winners who claims the $567 million jackpot.

The 26 year old mother of four came forth to explain why she wanted to go public.

She along with winners from Texas and the autonomous territory of Puerto Rico share this. With taxes each would walk away with an estimated $130 million.

She had an opportunity to talk to the junk food media about the day she purchased that winning ticket.

Life is good for Marie Holmes.
If you look slightly towards the ticket. The lottery commissions will tell ya that "machine pick" tickets are the ones that you could find the jackpots in. Of course, you're playing against 176 million others who are willing to shelve up to $300 to play a $2 unit of Powerball or $1 unit of Mega Millions.

The Shallotte woman vows to not let the winnings "change her". She said that she will devote some of her earnings to a local church and give her family a vacation.

The Daily Mail reports that Marie used to work at McDonald's and Walmart before quitting to take care of her children.

Her four children, Brayden, Charisma, Andrea and Ebony, are aged from nine months to seven years old. Brayden is believed to suffer from cerebral palsy.

Holmes sacrificed her education to care for her four children and took minimum wage jobs to provide for her family.

With little or no help from the fathers of her four young children, she has struggled financially for most of her adult life.

Holmes has also seen her own father repeatedly jailed and her favorite cousin shot and left paralyzed after a home invasion.

Family members describe Holmes as a loving mother who always put her children first.

"Marie is very grounded and she will know what to do with all that money," said her uncle William Bryant.
Be careful, the Have-Nots will come.
"I'm sure she will want to buy a new home for herself and her kids, but I can't see any extravagant purchases. She's a nice girl who loves her family and loves her church."

In 2012, state officials who run Powerball and Mega Millions changed ticket prices and lowered the odds of winning jackpots in hopes the moves would increase the number of huge prizes and draw more players.

The new rules worked, causing jackpots to repeatedly climb to record levels. More than half of the top 10 U.S. jackpots have been reached in the past couple of years.

Be careful what you play. You are responsible for whatever unit comes out! Be clear in explaining what type of unit you requesting.

Powerball and Mega Millions are tickets that can not be canceled. You are responsible for whatever unit comes out. Your state lottery commission and the licensed retailer are not responsible for lost, stolen, damaged or altered tickets.

You have to be at least 18 years old to play these games.

Best advice for all who win the lottery, is keep a cool head.

The first thing you do is write your name down on the back of the winning ticket. Say if you lose the jackpot ticket! If you have forgotten to sign the ticket and it gets lost, then it's your word against the winner's.

Second, make sure you cancel out your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or any other social networking website your on. That's the next thing that happens when you're a winner.

Third, you cancel your phone numbers and limit your email intake. Obviously you'll be swamped with phone numbers and well wishers asking if you're willing to shelve out a little cash. Trial lawyers, charity groups, the junk food media and scammers will take advantage of you. Some charity groups will not often bother you, but there are some that pose as legitimate but in reality a scam.

Fourth, hire a qualified lottery attorney. Make sure you have a qualified attorney who specializes in handling large sums of money. Don't assume every attorney is well respected in handling your financial earnings.

Fifth, don't quit a job until you are sure you've won the lottery. Don't rush to judgment about being a lottery winner. Sometimes a person who wins the lottery never expects it to happen so don't sit around the house hoping the day will come you'll be the millionaire. Don't burn bridges with your job. You may end up back at it if you decide to go back into the workforce.

Sixth, pay off debts to college loans, house, billings, and credit cards. Don't let these issues ruin your credit score or chances at buying better things. Do not share earnings with people who owe you money.

Seventh, invest your money in a trust fund if you have children or family members you can trust if you should die. Make a will or entrust. Make sure you know that you have a family member or a trusted friend who will take care of the winnings once you pass away.

Eighth, have fun with your earnings. Don't blow it on things that obviously will attract negative attention. Yeah, this is a gateway to putting in other venues. Some may blow their money at casinos, horsetracks, fantasy football and online poker. Granted that you are given the right to do whatever you want with your earnings, but seriously are going to get a gold stature of your image? Are willing to have five chefs, a butler, housekeeper, nanny, and chauffeur on the payroll? You going to buy a $100,000 vehicle! You want to own an island! Do you want your "friends" who often borrow money from you to handle your earnings?

Ninth, be humble. Cause money will change a person when they're rich. Don't expect your live to be "normal" when you win the lottery. Cause it's not going to be normal. It could a great experience or the worst thing.

Lastly, The Have-Nots Will Always Try To Make You Feel Guilty About Winning. Ignore Them And Be Happy About Your Success.

Drake: Tyga Is An Endangered Species!

Drake released his fourth album. Drake aimed at labelmate Tyga after the rapper called him "fake".

The YMCMB family is having some major issues. The tipping point happened back in December when Lil' Wayne expressed frustration with Birdman and the label delaying his albums. Lil' Wayne openly blasted the label and complained that Cash Money is pushing him and his acts to the side for the newer acts.

Tyga who is one of the members of the Cash Money label is affiliated with Young Money Entertainment. His third album is shelved because of the tension brewing between him and Drake.

Tyga and his best buddy Chris Brown appear on radio to trash the Canadian entertainer. They are working on a collaboration album called Fan of a Fan. They both acknowledged that Drake's "fake" and can't live up to the standards they offer. They don't want to give him the fame...

Drake is one of the world's most recognizable entertainers. He and Nicki Minaj are often nominated for Grammy's while Tyga is nominated for....nothing!

Tyga is jealous of Drake for one thing.

Obviously, being a second stringer isn't one of the things Tyga's capable of understanding.

BREAKING: Common And John Legend Won An Oscar!

Glory won the best motion picture score.

Common and John Legend won an Oscar. They join Eminem and Three Six Mafia as Oscar award winning hip-hop entertainers. Their song for the hit movie Selma took home an Oscar. It also defies the little controversy ensuing nominees being mostly White performers.

Congratulations to Common and John Legend. Glory won the Oscar for the Best Score in a Motion Picture.

Wikipedia give a brief summary of both entertainers.

Common debuted in 1992 with the album Can I Borrow a Dollar? and maintained a significant underground following into the late 1990s, after which he gained notable mainstream success through his work with the Soulquarians.

In 2011, Common launched Think Common Entertainment, his own record label imprint and in the past has released music under various other labels such as Relativity, Geffen and GOOD Music, among others.

Common's first major-label album, Like Water for Chocolate, received widespread critical acclaim and tremendous commercial success.

His first Grammy Award was in 2003, winning Best R&B Song for "Love of My Life", with Erykah Badu.

Its popularity was matched by May 2005's Be, which was nominated for Best Rap Album, at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Common was awarded his second Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for "Southside" (featuring Kanye West), from his July 2007 album Finding Forever. His best-of album, Thisisme Then: The Best of Common, was released on November 27, 2007.

Common won the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, and the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Song, for his song "Glory" from the 2014 film Selma, in which he co-starred as 1960s Civil Rights Movement leader James Bevel.

Common's acting career also includes starring significant roles in the films Smokin' Aces, Street Kings, American Gangster, Wanted, Terminator Salvation, Date Night, Just Wright, Happy Feet Two, and New Year's Eve. He also narrated the award-winning documentary Bouncing Cats, about one man's efforts to improve the lives of children in Uganda through hip-hop/b-boy culture.

He starred as Elam Ferguson on the AMC western television series Hell on Wheels.

John Legend was born in Springfield, Ohio. He is one of four children of Phyllis Elaine (née Lloyd), a seamstress, and Ronald Lamar Stephens, a factory worker and former National Guardsman.

Throughout his childhood, Legend was homeschooled on and off by his mother. At age four, he performed with his church choir. He began playing the piano at age seven. In 1987, when he was nine, his parents divorced. At the age of twelve, Legend attended North High School, from which he graduated four years later. Upon his salutatorian graduation, Legend was offered admission to Harvard University and scholarships to Georgetown University and Morehouse College. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied English with an emphasis on African American literature.



While in college, Legend served as president and musical director of a co-ed jazz and pop a cappella group called Counterparts. His lead vocals on the group's recording of Joan Osborne's "One of Us" received critical acclaim landing the song on the track list of the 1998 Best of Collegiate a Cappella compilation CD.

Legend was also a member of the prestigious senior societies Sphinx Senior Society and Onyx Senior Honor Society while an undergraduate at Penn. While in college, Legend was introduced to Lauryn Hill by a friend. Hill hired him to play piano on "Everything Is Everything", a song from her album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

During this period, he began to hold a number of shows around Philadelphia, eventually expanding his audience base to New York, Boston, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. He finished college in 1999, and thereafter began producing, writing, and recording his own music. He released two albums independently; his self-titled demo (2000) and Live at Jimmy's Uptown (2001), which he sold at his shows. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Legend began working as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group.

During this time, he began working on his demo and began sending his work to various record labels.

In 2001, Devo Springsteen introduced Legend to then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Kanye West; Legend was hired to sing during the hooks of West's music. After signing to West's label, he chose his stage name from an idea that was given to him by poet J. Ivy, due to what he perceived "old-school sound". J. Ivy stated, "I heard your music and it reminds me of that music from the old school.

You sound like one of the legends. As a matter of fact, that's what I'm going to call you from now on!

I'm going to call you John Legend." After J. Ivy continued to call him by the new moniker "John Legend," others quickly caught on, including Kanye West, and the name stuck. Despite Legend's reluctance to change his stage name, he eventually announced his new artist name as John Legend.

Common (Lonnie Lynn) and John Legend (John Stevens) are affiliated with Kanye West and his label G.O.O.D. Music. Common is a signed artist on Def Jam and John Legend is a signed artist on Sony Urban Music.

The conservative agitators aren't going to love this. Common and John Legend are friends with Barack and Michelle Obama.

A few years back, Common was invited to the White House for a poetic session and that annoying conservative agitator went bonkers over it.

Also the conservative agitators hated the fact that John Legend and Common both express concern about Black men being profiled by police.

Common currently attends Trinity United Church of Christ. The church was the scapegoat in the Jeremiah Wright controversy.
