Watch: Sharpton Calls For Zimmerman Arrest at DOJ Facilitated Rally

Watch: Sharpton Calls For Zimmerman Arrest at DOJ Facilitated Rally

I have a big piece up on Breitbart today about going over some of the ways that Obama administration facilitated and manipulated the Travvon Martin shooting. The piece starts:

The newest Obama scandal is seventeen months old.

Welcome to Trayvongate, where the President of the United Staters used both the bully pulpit, the Department of Justice and sly media manipulation to gin up charges of racism in the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin shooting. Now that the trial is almost finished and the only act of racism mentioned so far came from the victim–Martin called Zimmerman ‘a creepy ass cracker’ according to testimony–the cynical and repeated use of the race card by the White house is even more abhorrent.

Judicial Watch revealed documents today that proved what Breitbart News reported in April, 2012: that Eric Holder’s Department of Justice took an active role in racially charged rallies in Sanford, Florida and that the Community Relations Service helped force the temporary resignation of Sheriff Bill Lee. That resignation made it appear that Sanford authorities were suspect and possibly complicit in covering up something.

Some of my reporting at the time was based on interviews with numerous public officials in Sanford who wanted to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from the Obama administration. They described a situation where the CRS team took over and forced decisions while clearing a path for protests and rallies that heightened the appearence of racial tensions.

Read the whole thing. 

Here’s Rev. Al Sharpton speaking at one of the rallies that the Obama DOJ helped to facilitate.

Watch This Sopranos Trailer Tribute

Watch This Sopranos Trailer Tribute

Even though it was started in 2008, I just found this Definitive Explanation of the Ending of the The Sopranos website and wow, it’s definitive; an exhaustive and slightly exhausting multi-page essay with photos and video attempting to prove beyond any doubt that Tony was indeed whacked in the final episode.

I’m sold. Further, it made me appreciate the craft and forethought that went into the show. There are extensive quotes from David Chase that really bring home the idea that one of the most controversial finales in TV history was brilliant beyond belief. In you’re a filmmaker or fan of the show, it’s really worth your time.

At the end of the essay are a couple of Sopranos videos by an extremely talented trailer editor named Lyle. This one is from 2010 but it’s pretty hearth wrenching in the wake of the recent loss of actor James Gandolfini. More from Lyle (including other shows) here.

Must Be Heard: Australia’s Horrible Cruel Immigration Policy

Must Be Heard: Australia’s Horrible Cruel Immigration Policy

In part one of my hard hitting new investigative series, I learned that New Zealand has an unbelievably cruel immigration policy that is on a par with horrible conditions in the United States.

Now listen and be shocked to hear how Australia treats people struggling to find a better life down under. I call a photo line Australia immigration uses where other people actually REPORT people (smacks of Nazi Germany!) and they actually use the I word!

Justin Timberlake And Tasteful Nudity

Justin Timberlake And Tasteful Nudity

Not everything is for children, nor should it be.

I’m not a fan of most current pop music but I like Justin Timberlake well enough; he reminds me of Prince, especially on songs like Cry Me A River, which could have come off my favorite album from the Purple One, Sign O The Times.

If you’re familiar with my background in photography (my NSFW site here) then you know I also don’t have a problem with nudity and the music video Timberlake released a couple of days ago for his new song Tunnel Vision does it right. The song and video are hypnotic and the imagery is gorgeous. If anything, I could have used less Timberlake.

NSFW and not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but this is a beautiful video. Compare it to the most of the immature trash out there in video that don’t have nudity but manage to debase you just watching them. (I’m looking at you, Miley. Then shaking my head and looking away.)

Listen: New Zealand Is Mean To Me About Immigration.

Listen: New Zealand Is Mean To Me About Immigration.

We’ve all heard what the proponents of Comprehensive Immigration Reform say about the United States and immigration.

  • Our immigration laws are cruel and racist.
  • Using the term ‘illegal’ is cruel and racist.
  • Our immigratipon policies violate people’s right to a better life.
  • The illegal undocumented nice people here now work hard and deserve citizenship.

Turns out, America is not the only cruel, racist nation on earth. Listen to how I’m abused by the means people in that racist authoritarian mean place known as New Zealand!
