RANDOM THOUGHTS Just
Thinking Out Loud
1. If Eminem were an M&M, what flavor
would he be? White chocolate on the outside and dark chocolate on the inside?
2. If singer Ciara, married actor Leon, what
would her name be? Ciara Leon (get it? sounds like Sierra Leone).
3. Based on his name, isn't it ironic
that growing up Johnny Cash was poor. He certainly earned some cash later on
though, through his music.
4. Based on their names, isn't it
ironic that singer Clint Black is white and singer Karyn White is black.
5. If Hollywood's gay mafia (which
according to Michael Ovitz is David
Geffen, Michael Eisner, Bernard Weintraub, Barry Diller ect) got in to a fight with the
real mafia in New York, who would
win? The godfather vs. the gayfather (LOL). Yea, Hollywood would be
missing moguls when the smoke cleared.
6. Ever seen one of
those music videos by a female artist that tries to do to much…and ends up
looking like a maxi-pad commercial.
ROYALTY Prince Harry Slated To
Go To Iraq
It was announced this
week that Prince Harry wishes to go to Iraq to fight as a member of the
military. While it is commendable that he wishes to serve his country in a
greater capacity, it presents many issues of concern.
He is going to be such a target
over there. A trophy, if you will. It is going to be very difficult for the SAS
or anyone for that matter to provide
protection for him under the circumstances.
CELEBRITY Cute Kids

Athlete Reggie Bush (ooo look at him
blushing) and singer Ciara (oooo she's no better with the blushing
either). You know half the girls on the internet want to slap Ciara into next
week over him, but I think they look nice together. I read the feedback on some
sites regarding them and they included some funny statements that had me
1. "Ciara better fall back" - Angel

CELEBRITY Celebrities Making Funny Faces
Jessica Simpson - why do you always
look so surprised, even when there is advance warning...and have your mouth

Lindsay Lohan – I’ve heard of being tongue tied, but not leg tied.
You know, they make pills for that:
This month, Kaballah cult member,
Lindsay Lohan went in rehab, then out. Rehab in, rehab out, treating it like an
outpatient facility in the day and then going to the clubs, where there is
alcohol and drugs present, at night.
One report had her trying to order
liquor at a restaurant, but when carded, she withdrew the order. Another
article, supported by photos, reported she's been partying every night. The
rehab facility bent the rules for her, not requiring her to stay. They were
probably just relieved she showed up.
Still, it is hard to
conceive how being in that environment and constantly, can be a good thing for a
person struggling with substance abuse.
Hypocrite Lohan Blasted For Not Going To Director Robert Altman's Funeral
She behaved like a real drama queen, in a fake, overwrought,
false humility laden online speech about the recently deceased director, Robert
Altman, meaning so much to her life and her quest for
adequateness and being so devastated at his passing...yet opted to throw off her
so called mentor and father figure's funeral to spend the day partying with the
Stevo O from Jack***.
Altaman would have told you that's not
adequite adequate. You may want to
slow down, dear. What happened to your mouth. No 20 year old girl's mouth should
be covered in cold sores. Just what are they teaching you in that Kaballah cult.
Maybe Britney will give you some of her happy pills.
Hilton - leather jacket to match her leather skin (somebody needs to stay
off the tanning bed)...and did somebody punch you in the mouth or is that
London reported, "A
teary eyed Paris Hilton leaves the scene of the crime."
Wasn’t a good month for
Kaballah cult member Paris Hilton. She was arrested...again…for
speeding...again....and driving on a suspended licenses with her taillights off.
She did this in
violation of her probation and now faces another fine and 90 days in jail (now
would be a good time to call your Kaballah mentor Madonna and ask for tips on
how to bribe the judge, i.e. stocks).
Police Officer: You are not Fred Sanford. How many
times have we told you to stay off the Ripple!
Police Officer: Bimbo's gonna be walking.
Police Officer: hope she doesn't get picked up for something else:
Police Officer: we need to start charging her rent down at the station.
"She was arrested for driving on a
suspended license, which is a misdemeanor. Her car was impounded and she was
cited and released."
Who told her it was
okay to go out with her make up looking like that. The nose make-up is just
bizarre. This is why it is not good to take a hit before you do your make-up:
Earlier in the month, with her life in tatters
from the Paris Exposed web site that revealed her to be a sick, cruel human
being and a terribly racist person, she was seen crying in
public stating, “I don’t know what to do.” First thing you can do...is blend
that make up on your nose.
Trash Thrown At

While making an appearance in Vienna, trash was thrown at Paris by the audience.
She interpreted it as a sign of approval. THEY WERE THROWING TRASH AT YOU!

so symbolic. I'd have just told her she stinks, but I like their use of
Just teasing, but it did happen.
What Did She Do To
What happened to her
dog. Do we really wanna know. According to experts,
based on the nail color, she did a switch-a-roo (either that or she killed the
original one) and it's not the same dog she named Tinkerbelle.
The hair is so
bleached, it looks gray. Something about this pic reminds me of the Joker from

decided to abandon her solo career and go back to No Doubt. The arrogance,
greed, selfishness and repeated violations of copyright law she displayed has no
doubt hurt her name and career and she is hoping reuniting with her old band
will fix that. Don't hold your breath.
Nicole Smith 1967-2007
Anna Nicole Smith died in South
Florida on February 8, 2007,
while on vacation with her boyfriend, Howard Stern.
She lived a troubled life, filled with hard drug use, prescription medicine
abuse, alcoholism, promiscuous sex, dabbling in the occult and tragedy. She also
lost 69 pounds rapidly on the diet pill Trim Spa, which is a product that is not
good for the average heart.
I wrote about her three months ago
in the November column click here, stating
it would be beneficial if she went into rehab. Continued drug abuse and
alcoholism will wear away at anybody. It has been scientifically proven to
destroy the body, and sadly, sometimes the soul as well.
For years I thought she embraced
Marilyn Monroe's persona too much and it helped to send her down the wrong path.
And now, she was found dead and naked in bed, with a lot of pills in the room,
like her idol Marilyn Monroe.
I remember an article I read years
ago about Anna living in Marilyn Monroe's old home in Hollywood, and while high
on drugs one day, seeing a picture of Monroe come to life as demonic figures
trying to draw her into the picture.
The article stated she would go
insane and grow terrified when that would happen, and start to quote Bible
verses, as it was the only thing that calmed her down and kept those demons at
She wasn't the
picture of the blushing bride. She looked very sad on her wedding day to a man
60 years her senior:
She was most known for her epic
legal battle with her deceased elderly husband's estate, the late J. Howard
Marshall, to get a huge chunk of the money he left behind and left her out of,
after she married him when she was 26 and he 86. I never agreed with her doing
that, as I stated in previous Columns (September
2005 and September 2006).
The legal battle to
gain a fortune from a will she was not in, only served to destroy her name even
more, with her being branded a gold digger.
J Howard Marshall's son, Pierce (left), Anna
Nicole (right) during legal battle
That was his family's money and he
made his wishes clear in his will. He married her, and after one month, she went
about her business, leaving him heartbroken. That most likely aided his
She had many highs and lows in her
life. Mostly the latter, actually. She exploited people and people exploited her
as well. There are so many odd parallels in her life that it is not even funny.
Anna and son Daniel
Anna struggled with drug abuse.
Later her only son did as well, with it leading to an unintentional overdose and
She fought tooth and nail over her
deceased husband's money, going against his wishes. Now, people are fighting
tooth and nail over her money.
It was reported that years ago,
she fought her deceased husband's son over his body that ended up being
cremated, giving him half the ashes and the other half to Anna, in what can only
be described as undignified. Half the body resting in one place, half in
another, so to speak. Who would want that for themself.
Fast forward years later, a court
battle is being waged over her body, in a trial that became a circus, replete
with news that her body is decomposing more rapidly than expected, therefore a
decision has to be reached quickly. Further adding to the indignity, her mother,
who she didn't speak to for 10 years, wants to dig up Anna's son she buried in
the Bahamas and bring both bodies to Texas, their place of birth, for burial.
I think her mother should leave
his grave undisturbed in the Bahamas. As I wrote back in the November 2006
Column, "Bahamian officials are also concerned about her character, in her bid
for residency. However, as her child is buried there, they should and have been,
dealing easy with her. Her life has been turned upside down through choices she
Sadly, now that life is gone.
The fame and excess
wasn’t worth her dying young. What is her place in history. She was made fun of
more than anything due to her erratic, salacious lifestyle that was fuelled by
drugs, alcohol and promiscuity. She didn't like it either, as she voiced her
hurt at being the punch line.
The sad part about it
is, the path she chose was unnecessary. She was a pretty girl with charisma. She could have become a comedic
actress. She didn’t have to go the nude model route, but so many women get caught
up in that thinking that they are not good enough for anything else, which is a lie.
I remember an interview
a woman did for a mainstream entertainment news outlet, where she joked she had
to get drunk to do a playboy shoot. She wasn’t kidding though, as she drank to get the courage to do it.
With some of the things
you've seen women like Anna Nicole, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears do,
degrading themselves, it’s hard for them to look at themselves in the mirror
after, so they take drugs and drink alcohol to mask the pain.
Did Britney go Hare Krishna (kidding).
In last month's Column I wrote about
Britney's receding hair line click here.
Well, now, looks like it's receded all the way...when she, during a psychotic
episode, shaved her head. She looks like a sick cult member/zombie in a commune.
Britney Spears psychotically raging the next day in public:
Britney Spears gave the world a
bird's eye view into one of the most spectacular breakdowns in music history.
And what a breakdown it
was. It wasn’t your run of the mill kind of breakdown, either. It was a super-cali-fragilistic-expi-ali-docious, out the ball park, one flew over the cuckoo’s nest kind of breakdown.
For four months now I have been
writing in this Column that she was going to "self-destruct" by this year and at
the time, journos who read the site regularly probably thought I was kidding or
Because the attitude in certain
circles is, pop stars
are above everyone else, when the fact of the matter is their behavior is usually
worse than everyone else's, with very little or no talent to justify their fame,
and a good number of them being a danger to the public.
Britney forgot to wax the moustache (well, if she is gonna get rid
of the hair on her head...)
The day after Spears had what is
clearly a psychotic break, due to drugs and cult involvement (Kaballah), writers
across the board began using the term "self-destruct" in reference to her.
When I saw that, I thought to
myself, for months now I have been using that term to define her, while the
media, some articles paid for and placed, others just deluded and in denial, kept flattering
her for things that didn't merit flattery, but rebuke. All the while I'm thinking, there's
something very wrong with her. Her mind is gone.
First she started getting drunk and
puking all over the place, several times over two weeks. She was clearly
spiraling out of control. For months I have also been writing on here that she
clearly has a serious drug problem.
This month it has been confirmed
by witnesses, her admission into rehab and her ex-husband, Jason Alexander,
going on record in US Weekly stating Britney regularly does the drugs Ecstasy,
cocaine, valium and vicodin.
Then she started
partying heavily, even switching clothes with strippers, which isn't safe for
the strippers. Next Britney checked
into rehab…then out of rehab…then into rehab….then out of rehab.
Britney “you don’t
have to put on that red dress”
That dress isn’t a good
idea. You sure it wasn’t a blouse. You’re a mother of two.
Going out in a tank top alone should be off limits.
On February 15, 2007, a
TV Counselor, Shmuley Boteach, said something to
her in an open letter released to the press, that also contained things I said
the month before in this Column, Britney thinks it's a “big party,” is rarely
home and acts like she has no responsibilities as a parent:
"We can all pretend that life is
one big party devoid of responsibility. And rarely being home, or coming home
drunk..." - Rabbi
Now you've got different people
telling you the same thing. You need to wake up.
But in-between all the
checking in and out…Britney had a psychotic break, shaved her head, got tattooed
and showed a hidden side of her - psychotic rage and schizophrenia, in clear sight of the
camera toting paparazzi.
bruise on her hip
(scroll down for another bruise on her right leg):
Britney wrongfully assaulted a photographer, unprovoked.
She ran out of the driver's seat of a running car, ran 30 feet and began wildly
swinging an umbrella at him, creating a big red welt on his back. She then
violently attacked one of the photographers' cars.
This is a serious indication that she is a danger to the public
and her children. There is no excuse for this and people needn't encourage or applaud her for
the aforementioned conduct, lest she does something worse and more
Britney violently attacking an
empty vehicle in a psychotic rage:
Britney's desperate ramblings at the hair salon where she shaved
her head against the hairdresser's wishes, rages and wide eyed looks, is that of a cult
member who had a psychotic break. That wasn't just drugs or post partum
There are many people in the industry who are on drugs, but they
are not crazy. They are not psychotic. They are not insane. Britney,
however, is all of those things and it is the lingering effects of the
brainwashing from the Kabballah cult.
She is behaving like a textbook example of a religious cult
member having a psychotic episode, which is serious. Spears went to Kaballah
classes, read the books and received personal instruction from several of the
Spears' eyes are so filled with rage. She's clearly snapped:
Bruise on her right leg:
The last Kaballah cult member who had a psychotic break like
this, unprovoked, attacked and murderer 2 innocent people, her elderly
grandmother and boyfriend. Her name is Fiona Davis. I've written about her on
this site before.
She had that same wild eyed, rage filled, psychotic look, as
Britney, and was wandering all over town, spontaneously running in and out of
transport, like Britney, uncontrollably doing and saying incoherent and strange
things, as described by witnesses in London, once again, like Britney .
A doctor later described Fiona Davis as the "sickest
person" he'd ever seen. Ironically, last week, Britney's dad referred to her
in an interview as, "a sick little girl."
Both Britney and Fiona also started struggling with severe
depression as well, before they self-destructed.
Britney Complained Of Being Bugged
Fiona Davis, like Britney, complained of being "bugged" with
people being in her place, knowing her movements and personal business, which
are all sick trademarks of the Kabbalah cult, who have been outed for performing
acts of criminal invasion of privacy and trespassing, against innocent,
unsuspecting people, to use the content of said illegal surveillance to
harass and swindle targets out of their assets.
It's a type of mind control and manipulation that in some cases
produces psychosis, if the person isn't smart enough to understand there is a
logical, technological reason behind the bizarre incidents causing other people
to know their private business and what goes on in their home.
The Kabbalah cult and Scientology cult have illegally put a number of
unwitting people under surveillance, in
ways that are a serious violation of the law and constitute severe human rights
The contents of the illegal wiretapping and invasive property
bugging were then used as collateral to blackmail and or manipulate people into
doing what they want or to control the target's valuable assets.
Britney, however, knew Kabbalah was a sick cult, but because it
used to be trendy, she got involved. The things they had her doing publicly and
I shudder to think what privately, rumored in the industry to be very bad, were
wrong. Once again, she knew better and had enough indicators that she was
participating in inappropriate conduct.
And if you trace back when Britney's erratic, reckless behavior
began, it is when she joined the Kabbalah cult at Madonna's insistence. Right
around the time of that MTV kiss, that based on reports, Britney did not want to do. Articles stated Madonna kept barking at her "c'mon Britney" during the
rehearsals. That woman really is vile.
The Britney the world knew is gone, replaced by a new one, who
will never be the same. Her
mind has been messed with by a sick cult. Her problems with her divorce and
declining career, only compounded it.
She is a danger to herself (o.d., suicide), her children and the
people around her. She needs to be supervised around her kids as well, for their
safety, lest something seemingly simple triggers her and something bad happens. As I wrote a year
ago, I never believed Britney's nanny dropped the baby on his head, creating
that injury to the poor child.
While she can get off drugs, her mind has been mentally harmed. Most doctors can't undo the
irreparably mess left behind by cults. They can only try
to improve certain things, which is why it is best to stay away from cults.
Still, there is hope.
If her parents decide to finally act like parents, instead of
encouraging her in every bit of foolishness that will make a buck and keep them
living in luxury (her mother inexplicably allowed Britney to pose in her
underwear on the cover of Rolling Stone at age 16 and additionally said in an interview that her kiss
with Madonna on TV, during respectable viewing hours, was "cool"), they
will not only see to it that she gets off drugs, but that she gets help for the
mental problems she now has due to the cult.
Britney was admitted to Promises rehab center in Malibu. However, the next day
she checked herself out again, after having done the same at another rehab
facility in Antigua earlier in the week.
She then went to the Mondrian
Hotel in Los Angeles, wearing an ill-fitting, Carroll Channing knock off wig:
With no credit
card, Britney tried to check into said hotel, but was refused. She
started crying, “No one wants me” upon which, some tourists felt sorry for her
and helped her. They bought her a bikini at the gift shop and let her stay in
their room. Photos and a article have since surfaced in US Weekly to support the
Britney went out to the hotel pool and tried to switch bikinis with someone again,
further opting to shave her legs,
pool side, in public.
The Mondrian Hotel pool
Danger To Her Kids
A TMZ Survey of 21,570
people found that 80% of the people said K-Fed should get the kids, while, if
you can add, you know that means, only 20% said Britney should get the kids.
It proves what I have been
writing on here for months, "team K-Fed" because he is clearly the more sane one.
It's sad it took something like this for people to see that. I'm not saying he
is perfect, as he did quite a few things wrong, but compared to Britney, he is
the better parent.
The safety and wellfare of those
beautiful little kids should be first and foremost. Not sparing anyone's image
or planned album and tour and leaving the kids in jeopardy.
All too often, too many allowances
are made for out of control celebrities, which endangers innocent people who
have rights too.
Public Balks At Britney Bald
She is not a cancer patient or someone naturally
balding, where it looks natural. The public saw her shave her head in an
erratic, irrational manner and later behave violently. This is what they will
associate her new bald look with. It was a bad idea. People needn't tell her it's great or
inventive because it is not. It is not flattering on her in particular either.
Don't encourage her with it. She needs to grow her hair back.
A TMZ survey found Britney's new look:
fugly = 87%
Hot = 13%

CELEBRITY Jay Z
There was a story on the Sandra Rose web site
stating rapper Jay-Z has a son, but he paid the mother, a Trinidadian model
named Shanelle, $1,000,000 to keep his name off the birth certificate.
If this is true, and Jay-Z and the boy do look a
lot alike, that was terrible. How's the boy going to feel later. He is a
beautiful child. He deserves more than that insult from the likes of you,
baby seller. I hope the
baby grows up to be famous like Shaq and writes a song about you, a la Shaq.

looks weird that you do that. By the way, Cassie rocked it better.
Beyonce Snubs Jennifer Hudson
Articles stated Beyonce left Jennifer Hudson's name off the
guest list at her industry parties. Thanks to her Destiny's Child spotlight
hogging and limelight rigging, someone's ego clearly can't handle being
second fifth best.
OSCAR WINNER Hudson (that hurts doesn't it), became the
star of the film Dreamgirls, even though Beyonce played the lead role.
I think it was your deeds coming back to you, humbling you,
for what you did to those girls in Destinys Child, in your over ambitious quest
for fame, in that someone you clearly thought was beneath you, walked away top
dog, upstaging you.

takes credit for songs he didn't do. Storch used to work for him and claims in
his song, Timbaland did that to him as well.
It also has a line about a
producer working under Timbaland named Danja, who according Storch, "makes the
hits while you take all the credit" stating the guy "hates you with a passion"
for doing that to him. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Either way, not a fan of what
either of them do and in my opinion, neither one of them are gangster or
hardcore, as many in the industry love to claim about themselves.

I sent in the legal petition to the Supreme Court, but there has been some problems with that, some of them eye brow
raising. I will post the full details of it shortly and the current status of
the case before it goes international.
My family and I are currently
working on some things in regards to the case, that has gotten out of control on
the Defendants end, in that we have to abide by the law, which we wouldn't dream
of doing anything less, but thanks to Robert Mueller of the FBI's and his
shameful criminal negligence, the Defendants in the case, clearly don't have to
follow the law.
Some additional sick, despicable
human rights violations occurred, which we hold him responsible for as well, as
if he had not exercised such great levels of criminal negligence in the case, it
would not have happened. We will address it shortly.
This case is also delaying the

new works from those money grubbing criminals who are openly breaking the law.

A new E! produced show titled "Boulevard Of

titled "City Of Broken Dreams." The content and names of the projects are
extremely similar, containing duplicates, even focusing on the same stars. The
new E! knock off premiered last week and is about the same thing as my

Robbie Disses Guy
Ritchie's Ex Girlfriend On Song With Madonna's Approval
Madonna probably put him up to it,
due to Guy Ritchie's ex slamming her publicly for stealing him. Strecker
shouldn't get mad, though. Madonna ruined Guy Ritchie's life and career and aged
horribly. Whilst she looks great and is dating a Rothschild. I'd say he reaped
what he sowed.
The song is titled "She's Madonna"
(it should be titled "She's Irrelevant"). Not only is someone, Rod Stewart's
son, threatening to sue Robbie for stealing the lyrics (boy, anytime Madonna is
in the picture, there is some ripping off going on), the song is ridiculous and
I also noticed some rip offs in
the song that are directly lifted from the old song "Can’t take

Warner Digital Sales
Warner Music, home to
Madonna, experienced a 74% drop in sales and a $5 stock price drop to $18.00+

$5 per share.
74% sales drop...that’s not a drop,
that’s a plummet. 74%...is that all. That is bad. Very bad. CD sales are the
ones that have been dropping, with people calling digital sales the avenue to
boost losses from CDs, so it is a very bad sign that they hemorrhaged that much
money in digital.
Here’s how you can spin
it next time, write some foolishness like:
"We have shown a gain in losses from last year." Confuse the life

You know, pepper spray is
supposed to be used by victims holding off an attacker. Not

supposed nerve to be single and get into a relationship with a single man (yea,

intention of inflicting permanent damage on that woman.
(Um, what was the tubing for?)
She said she wanted to
“scare her” into talking to her. But hat business did she have

Who Don’t Tell Their Partners The True Extent Of Their Sexual Activities
There are bisexual women who
don't tell their boyfriends or husbands about their bisexual activities or the
true extent of it, end up contracting HIV quicker than many and bringing
it home to their unsuspecting partner.
There are new strains
of HIV that have been found, which doctors in King County said this month, are resisting medication.
There are a lot of jokes and
salacious comments in pop culture that encouraging women to be bisexual to make
certain men happy, but what happens when it turns to disease and broken dreams,
due to promiscuity, which is dangerous.
What happens when that man who
encouraged his partner to be bi-sexual for his kicks or realized there was a
problem like that in their relationship, but looked the other way to it anyway,
hoping it wouldn't create problems, then down the road, she comes home crying
telling you that she has HIV.
Or down the road, your football
playing teen son, due to influences from his mother, tells you he is confused
about his sexuality. And what happens if being with a bi-sexual woman starts
confusing you about your sexuality.
I'm not bashing gay people. I am a
Christian and do not believe in homosexuality, but I don't hate gay people. It
is your life. However, if you choose to be gay, that is your choice. But there
are some men who do not choose to be gay, are in relationships with
bisexual women, not realizing what they are truly setting themselves up for
that may go against what they want for themselves and their future families.
If you are straight, you should be
in a committed relationship with a straight person, who shares your beliefs
about sexuality, to spare yourself the heartbreak of what could and has happened
to people, who did not realize what they were truly signing themselves up for.
SOCIAL Racism: The
Hatred Of Others
Happy Black History
month. I want to use this opportunity to talk about the racial problems and hang
ups that exist in society. The only way people are going to make these things
better is by talking about it.
When you look at the
nonsensical hatred that
surround Martin Luther King jr. during his life, it is astonishing. Astonishing
that he was a good man, who strove to
improve society, on the premise that all are created equal in the sight of God,
yet he was treated like a criminal. That was a very shameful way to treat a man of
His death seared an ugly image in the
world’s mind of what the end result of the racial hatred of others can be. Here
was one of the best people in the world, arrested for being black, targeted by
the FBI for being too influential and killed for preaching God's message that
all are equal.
But how far have we
come from that. Let's see:
got people, even liberals, like Paris Hilton and Michael Richards publicly using

crimes are still being committed in high numbers.
Black business are
still sometimes illegally run into the ground and pillaged by some, not all,
white competitors out of greed, malice, racial and cultural hatred
(Aisha looking at Hollywood).
Only one state apologized for
slavery (Virginia did this month). No reparations were made by the country to
black people for many years of racial hatred, brutality, abuse and free labor.
To be fair, we as minorities are
to blame for some things too. While minorities can now vote, how often do we. We
can better ourselves socially and educationally, but how often do most of us do
We can help build up society in
some way, whether it be charitable donations, creating awareness about social
ills or giving of our time to good causes, but how often do most of us do that.
I do those things and know others
who do as well. I recommend you do the same too. However, over all, while progress has
been made, clearly not enough, that history can still be repeating itself, as
mentioned above, with numbers 1 through 7 listed, still happening.
There are so many
stereotypes out there that I have lost count. Stereotypes like "All black people
love watermelon and chicken."
There are also degrading sexual
stereotypes about minorities that people joke about publicly that really aren't
funny. Some see minorities
sexually as a piece of meat,
animals, dirty or not human. Rude comments are also made in reference to
I find it very hard to believe,
that God who made us all, would make anybody a piece of meat or dirty based on
their race. He didn't. That has to do with racial and social perceptions of
people that amazingly, some choose to perpetuate, stigmatizing others they deem
lesser based on race or culture.

The FBI Can't Find Their Stuff - 160 Laptops And Numerous Guns Missing
Robert Mueller: I didn't know it was a laptop. I threw it out. It was
about this wide and kept buzzing and flashing. It said something on it like,
doors or Windows or something. I thought it was a tray with a hidden bug (you know
what those Russian spies are like).
I have a question. I've never
owned a gun and really don't want one, but how do you lose a gun. To the
average lay person that just doesn't sound right. How come you guys lose your
guns, but Dick Cheney never loses his.
unsure if missing notebook PCs contain sensitive date
An article stated the FBI doesn't
know what was on missing agency laptops. Wow, that's pretty bad. What if they
had agents social security numbers and addresses, system passwords, national
secrets, Mueller's secret projects he doesn't tell Congress about and wouldn't
brief them on in a million years, lest they find out how far he's gone,
pimp slap him, necessitating the need for a top defense attorney.
Laptops, guns lost
in FBI fumble
No one would mistake
FBI agents for the inept police officers in the early '60s sitcom Car 54, Where
Then again ...
The U.S. Justice
Department's inspector general reports that the FBI lost 160 laptop computers
and the same number of weapons, including six submachine guns, over the past
four years. "Perhaps most troubling, the FBI could not determine in many cases
whether the lost or stolen laptop computers contained sensitive or classified
information," the audit found.
Where the contents of
the missing laptops were identified, one contained the names, addresses and
phone numbers of FBI personnel; another had software for creating identification
badges; and another was used to "process surveillance-related electronic digital
imaging." In other words, it was information the nation wouldn't want in the
hands of criminals or terrorists.
Those findings were
bad enough, but the FBI's response to the audit was worse. Instead of owning up
to its shortcomings and vowing to do better in the future, FBI assistant
director John Miller almost bragged of the agency's "significant progress in
decreasing the rate of loss for weapons and laptops."
True, the audit
reported that compared with the initial two-year review in 2002 - which found
the FBI had lost 317 laptops and 212 weapons - the recent numbers are lower. But
tell us, Mr. Miller, what number of lost computers containing sensitive
information and submachine guns is acceptable to the FBI? We would hope that
number is zero.
In fact, there is no
reason for Americans to feel reassured that the FBI has gotten the message. Too
often it doesn't even report stolen computers or guns to the National Crime
Information Center as required. The FBI failed to report 23 of the stolen guns
to the NCIC and 136 of the missing laptops.
Congress should demand
better accountability from the FBI for its careless disregard of public trust.

FBI Let 4 Innocent Men Rot In Jail For 30
Plus Years To Protect A Mafia Criminal
Here is a very telling and sickening story about
how 4 innocent men were left to rot in prison FOR 30 YEARS, while the FBI knew
they had been framed, but to protect a criminal informant they had in the mafia,
they looked the other way.
These 4 men suffered, spent 30 years in prison,
while their families had to struggle through without them. That means they
missed 30 Christmases, 30 Easters and the important moments in their kids lives.
I just don't know what to think of the FBI
anymore. Even when I pray, I say to God, there must be some good people in
there, they can't all be like him (Mueller).
Then you read stories like these where criminal
negligence was utilized 30 years ago, destroying 4 innocent men's lives and that
of their families. This has been going on for some time.
Then you read about the Mark Foley scandal where
Mueller's office in Washington was notified of how he was sexually harassing
underage Congressional pages right in Mueller's vicinity and did nothing to stop
it. Well what are you there for then?
How can people think well of you under the
circumstances. You call this excellence? What kind of law enforcement model is
it when you look the other way to serious crime and allow innocent people, even
children, to suffer, for reasons that can never be justified or excused.
Stories like these, Martin Luther King jr, the
Mark Foley scandal and others, give the public the impression the agency just
doesn't care. The following story is appalling beyond words:
At what price the
FBI’s treachery? 4 families abused by feds await some ju$tice
28, 2007 - Updated: 12:53 AM EST
No one paid much
attention 42 years ago when Edward “Teddy” Deegan, a very minor street gremlin,
made his graceless exit from this vale of tears.
But then, back on the
night of March 12, 1965, who could ever have imagined all who would die when
this anonymous hood caught a couple of bullets in a Chelsea alley?
In a twist of fate
more bizarre than ironic, the anniversary of Teddy’s demise is likely to be
memorialized with an epic judgment against the federal government in general -
and the FBI in particular - that could exceed $100 million.
The question is not
whether U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Gertner will find for the plaintiffs who
were framed for the Deegan murder.
It is how much
compensation she decides to award to Joseph Salvati and Peter Limone, who
survived a total of 64 years in prison, as well as to relatives of Louis Greco
and Henry Tameleo, who died behind bars.
So far, they have
received the sincere apologies of the governor(s) who vacated their wrongful
convictions, along with the condolences of congressmen who gagged on the twisted
tale of FBI treachery that left a trail of human wreckage in the wake of Teddy
Deegan’s innocuous death.
But not a penny for
all the lost years, or what has been clinically referred to as the FBI’s notion,
“acceptable collateral damage.”
Yesterday, a fleet of
lawyers described that “collateral damage” in searing detail.
Michael Avery began by
reminding a packed courtroom - where a trio of congressmen sat in the front row
- that Joe Salvati and Peter Limone were not supposed to be there. Our
government had intended for them die in prison, Avery said, describing how bolts
of electricity were scheduled to burn through the flesh of Limone, Greco and
The story of how a
ruthlessly ambitious pair of G-men, H. Paul Rico and Dennis Condon, conspired to
protect a psychotic hit man and serial killer named Joe “The Animal” Barboza was
laid out in linear fashion, with the FBI’s own internal documents as road signs.
“When you hear the
story presented like that,” Bill Delahunt remarked, “you gain a real
appreciation for the culture of treachery that existed.” And still exists.
As sinister and sordid
as this “liability” presentation was, the most haunting aspect of what occurred
in Nancy Gertner’s courtroom yesterday was when the “damages” inflicted upon
wives, children, grandparents, brothers, sisters, grandchildren - all the
so-called “acceptable collateral damage” - was spelled out.
Unlike the families of
Joe Salvati and Peter Limone, which were held together by a pair of heroic
wives, Louis Greco’s family perished when what had been a conventional suburban
life fell apart with his imprisonment.
Greco was a hero of
Bataan who was awarded 12 medals, survived 10 operations and and was fearless
enough to stare down a thug like Barboza in defense of a friend. And when Teddy
Deegan was killed in that Chelsea alley, Louis Greco had taken his wife to a
movie in Florida... - Boston Herald Columnist
'Things got worse'
Framed men's relatives
recall lives left behind
Looking back, Edward
Greco calls them "the wonder years." His family lived in a nice Colonial in
Peabody. His father built him a fort in the backyard and was always around for
family dinners, homework help, and trips to the beach and ballpark.
when Eddie Greco was 10. His father, Louis , a decorated World War II
veteran, was arrested for a 1965 gangland murder in Chelsea, wrongfully
convicted with three other men and sentenced to death.
"That time there
was the most black time of my life," Edward Greco, now 49, recently told a
federal judge as he testified about the disintegration of his family while his
father sat on death row in the late 1960s. "Things got worse and worse at home."
His mother sank
into depression, drank heavily, and became abusive and neglectful, failing
to shop for groceries or do laundry . "There was no food in the house," said
Edward Greco, who said he survived by eating leftovers from classmates' school
lunches. "I had no clean clothes to wear. . . . and some of the pants I can't
even button because I'm growing."
dramatically, too, for the families of the other three men convicted with Greco
in state court while FBI documents that might have helped prove their
innocence remained buried in the bureau's files.
Joseph Salvati and
Peter J. Limone were in their early 30s when they went to prison, each leaving
wives struggling to raise four young children. Henry Tameleo , who at 66 was
the eldest of the group when he was arrested , left an ailing wife who died at
home without him.
On Tuesday, a federal
judge will hear final arguments in a civil suit seeking more than $100 million
in damages from the government for the false imprisonment of Salvati and Limone,
whose convictions in the slaying of Edward "Teddy" Deegan were overturned six
years ago, and Greco and Tameleo, both of whom died in prison before they were
Lawyers for the four
men cited wrongful convictions nationwide in which more than $1 million was

failing to disclose documents during the 1968 trial that indicate the men were
framed, and if so, how much the government should pay the men and their
US Justice Department
lawyers have argued that the FBI is not liable because it had no obligation to
share internal documents with state prosecutors or defense lawyers, and that the
state prosecuted Salvati, Limone, Greco, and Tameleo after conducting an
independent investigation. - Boston Globe
I always believe in turning things around so
people can get an opportunity to see both sides of the story.
What if a member of the public knew of a crime
that was about to go down, that a high ranking FBI official and a few special
agents would end up getting blamed, arrested, prosecuted then thrown in federal
prison for, for 5 years, amongst people they themselves had arrested at
different times in unrelated incidents. Talk about being a target in prison.
What if that member of the public, shut their
mouth about what they knew was going to happen, let it happen and let the FBI
official and special agents rot in prison for 5 years. That's 1,825 days.
What if, year after year, said member of the
public kept quiet, not vouching for the agents or the FBI high ranking official,
giving the government a statement that could free them. Would said agents and
high ranking FBI official not be angry and devastated beyond words.
Yet this is the type of mistreatment that was
allowed to transpire against 4 innocent men.
I say every agent who knew about what was done
to the 4 men and looked the other way should be imprisoned. When you look the
other way and let innocent people be harmed, you betray the public you are sworn
to serve and disgrace the country.
Sen. asks if FBI will punish those who
retaliated against agent
"WASHINGTON - One of
the Senate's most vocal defenders of government whistleblowers wants to know if
the FBI plans to discipline agents who a court found had retaliated against a
Minneapolis agent who filed a sexual-discrimination complaint.
Sen. Charles Grassley,
R-Iowa, sent the letter to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller on Monday regarding
the case of Minneapolis agent Jane Turner, who recently won a $565,000 judgment
against the agency.
"Given that her
allegations have now been substantiated, I am writing to you for information
about how you intend to hold supervisors accountable for the acts of
retaliation," Grassley wrote in a letter to Mueller. Grassley's office released
the letter Tuesday.
FBI spokeswoman Cathy
Milhoan would only say that the agency has received the letter and will prepare
Turner, who retired in
2003, also had a separate dispute with the FBI after she accused colleagues of
stealing a Tiffany crystal globe from the World Trade Center ruins. Grassley had
rallied to Turner's side over that issue as well.
In this week's letter
to Mueller, Grassley asked how many FBI supervisors have been disciplined for
retaliation over the past five years and what discipline will be taken against
those who were involved in the actions against Turner.
He also asks about the
role of three specific supervisory special agents in the Turner case, and
whether the FBI plans to discipline them.
"Now that a jury has
substantiated retaliation by the FBI in this case, I am anxious to find out what
the FBI will do to demonstrate that your commitment to protecting FBI
whistleblowers is more than just words," Grassley wrote. "Unless retaliators are
held accountable, the FBI culture will not change."
He asked for a
response by March 7.
In a statement,
Grassley said: "It's time for the supervisors who retaliated against Jane
Turner, and any other whistle blower for that matter, (to) be held accountable."
On Feb. 5, a jury
awarded Turner $60,000 in damages for lost wages and $505,000 for emotional
distress. According to one of her attorneys, Robert Hill, a statutory cap on
monetary damages will require the judge to reduce the $505,000 to $300,000 - so
she will get $360,000.
Records show Turner
was rated superior or exceptional in her job reviews until she filed a sex
discrimination complaint against her supervisor.

LEGAL FILE South Florida Cops Busted
In the October 2006
Column I wrote about the dangers of crossing the line for law
enforcement officers, engaging in acts of corruption and the consequences that
can stem from it. The bad thing is, as I wrote months ago, when one or a few get
caught, it makes the whole department look
bad. Even the ones who didn't do anything.
This week a prime example of that happened in
South Florida, in a case being talked about nationwide. 4 officers have been
arrested as a part of an FBI sting into police corruption and bribery.
An article stated the sting began as a tip to
the FBI about someone in that department, and over the course of 2 years, the
FBI built a case, by lulling them into a false sense of security in having them
think they were dealing with the mafia in breaking the law.
INTERNATIONAL NEWS Cuba
In light of the differences America and Cuba
have been experiencing, in what seems like forever, why not sit down and talk it
out. A few peaceful meetings with a few U.S. government representatives, local
Cuban-American politicians, Cuban government officials and community leaders.
No yelling. No shouting. No assassination
attempts. Just an exchange of thoughts and ideas to resolve a decades old
conflict that isn't helping anyone, as Cuban-Americans can't go visit Cuba and
do business with it as they like, nor can Cubans in Cuba regarding America.
It wouldn't hurt to talk.
The harsh economic sanctions that have been
placed on Cuba and people who do business with Cuba in other parts of the world,
by America, has not worked to bring democracy to the island, only create food
and medicine shortages that hit the poor the hardest. Castro has seen more U.S.
presidents come and go than the Oval Office, and even after his death, his
ideals will still remain in his family and members of his cabinet.
This thing could go on indefinitely and the
rift continues to widen. Talking, if done peaceful, not Jerry Springer show
style, could ease the tensions as well.
Even if you walk away from the table still
not agreeing, maybe you can walk away with a clearer picture of the other side's
view, that was posed to you peacefully, which you can think about it for a bit,
and one or both sides reach a compromise.
You can't stay mad at each other forever. Even
the Berlin Wall fell.
Childhoods And Their Spiritual Effects
You ever notice how a bad childhood can mess up a
person way into their adult years. Ever wonder why that is. The general societal
view is that you are to shake off your childhood when you get older. But some
people sustain serious traumas in their childhood that makes them cold, distant
and emotionally numb when they get older. It makes them very hard to reach
Some hold the trauma and anger inside, carrying
a heavy burden that would break anyone. Some develop volatile tempers as a
result. They internalize the bad things that happened, carry it with them in
life, and it manifests as a very bad temper.
Women who were too rigid and cold while raising
their sons, also do them a disservice. Later on, they are emotionally distant
with their girlfriends or later their wives, as they associate them with you and
the template you set. They see how you interacted with their father and how
stern you were with them and it creates an emotional barrier they carry in life,
spilling over into relationships they have.
Some girls were harmed when they were younger
and simply don't trust men anymore.
For some men and women they remember the exact
year the trauma happened, sort of marking their life from that age on. Whatever
age it may have been, they carry that year with them every year of their life
because it was so painful. That's gotta be tough. I know people that's happened
to and I felt bad for them.
It's not so hard to understand why some go
through what they do later in life as a result of a bad childhood. Childhood is
supposed to be a great time for people. You see it on TV - that picture perfect
childhood with great memories, something you never had and you wonder why. Feel
like life cheated you somehow.
Sad fact of the matter is, other people can
destroy your life and traumatize you. But you have to work through those
emotions in a positive way. You can't let it eat away at you or destroy you.
You can talk it through with someone you feel
you can confide in, letting it out, and having a good cry. Talking about things
often makes people feel better.
God loves you. It isn't always easy to see that
there can be a time when you'll smile again or even know happiness, but you can.
