POTUS: I don’t think Mr. Snowden was a patriot. I called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before he made these leaks.
“I wish I could vote PBO as POTUS into perpetuity….”
Me to, GN! The man has so much integrity, class and smarts! No wonder small minded and envious people are all out to get him. They will all fail! Especially those who think they can diminish his legacy by telling lies about him. Unless they destroy all his speeches, his executive orders, etc., future honest historians of his presidency will have the actual records to counter their lies.

– –Tameka Raymond breaks down in court; loses in emergency custody battle – -
– —–Usher Raymond and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond met today in an Atlanta courthouse for an emergency hearing, as Tameka attempted to get full custody of their two sons, 5-year-old Raymond V, and 4-year-old Naviyd.
— Tameka took to the stand and said that her son is doing well after the accident, but she still has concerns about his health. Moments into her testimony, she broke down sobbing, saying that she has been at the hospital since the moment her son was admitted, but that she has not seen Usher all these days. She said, “Usher didn’t show up.”
After the judge played the 911 calls, Tameka said that the tape shows Usher’s Aunt Rena “has no control over the kids.”
Tameka ultimately lost. The judges dismissed her request for primary custody.
“What happened here was an awful accident. And I don’t know based on the evidence I heard that any single person could have done any better as Ms. Odom,” the judge said. “I’m dismissing the motion.” – –[Hmmmm. . . WATCHIN' --No FLOATIES, ETC.]
“In the future you [Usher] would be well advised to keep you former spouse informed about your whereabouts and who is taking care of the kids.

A look inside America’s first black public high school
1:48 PM on 08/09/2013
Alison Stewart, author of the new book First Class: The Legacy of Dunbar, America’s First Black Public High School joined Andrea Mitchell Reports this week to talk about a storied institution in American high school education.
The daughter of two Dunbar graduates herself, Stewart told Mitchell:
“I was very concerned that the history of Dunbar High School was going to be lost because so many of the graduates who could tell about the old Dunbar, this elite public high school, where the teachers were some of the first to get PhDs and master’s degrees and thereby taught the next two generations who became the greatest generation of African-Americans.
I was worried it was going to get lost because these people are in their 80s and their 90s. So I went around the country looking for them, and having them tell me their stories to bear witness to this school. “
Started just a few years after the end of the Civil War in a church basement, Dunbar educated some of the best and brightest African-Americans in the country, and sent 80% of its graduates to college in its heyday in during the first half of the 20th century.
Today, Dunbar is in crisis.
“When it should have been at its height, it became a neighborhood school and really fell victim to all of the pathologies of the neighborhood,” Mitchell said.
The school is slated to open a new, $122 million state-of-the-art campus this fall.
I saw Allison on Bashir Live yesterday. It was a very interesting segment. I admit, I don’t much do non-fiction books, but I actually was very interested in that one for sure

Oh, so this is why Chris Brown is trending on twitter:
Chris Brown 911 Seizure Call
The L.A. City Fire Dept. rushed to a Hollywood recording studio early Friday morning, after getting a 911 call that Chris Brown had a seizure … TMZ has learned.
The call came from Record Plant recording studios in Hollywood at 1:09 AM. When EMTs arrived … we’re told Chris refused treatment and also
refused to be transported to the hospital.
We do not know if it was indeed a seizure, but we’ve learned Chris did suffer from seizures as a child.
That’s scary, he better get checked out.

—Obama signs student loan deal – –
——- -President Barack Obama signed into law Friday a measure restoring lower interest rates for student loans, pledging the hard-fought compromise would be just the first step in a broader, concerted fight to rein in the costs of a college education.
Encircled by lawmakers from both parties in the Oval Office, Obama praised Democrats and Republicans alike for agreeing — finally — on what he called a sensible, reasonable approach to student loans even as he cautioned that “our job is not done.”
“Feels good signing bills. I haven’t done this in a while,” Obama said, alluding to the difficulty he’s faced getting Congress to approve his legislative priorities, such as gun control and budget deals.
“Hint, hint,” he added to laughter.

I’m telling ya give me Nas over Jay-Z anyday. At least Nas ain’t just sitting “ballin’ and collecting money”. Shoot Nas has a social conscience.
Nas – I Can
Too bad he co-signed Gwyneth Paltrow using the n-word. He lost major cool points with me after this: http://newsone.com/2019974/nas-gwyneth-paltrow/
Agreed, but Nas at least has collateral to leave behind. Jay Z has done nothing to advance any type of social justice.
Shoot, even the “friendship” with POTUS is just cause Jay Z has this thing about hanging with “powerful” people cause he’s HOV or whatever bullshit…
puh-leaze Jay Z …lol
But for me, that makes it worse and why I’m disappointed in him. Nas KNOWS better, but he still defended Gwyneth’s bs.
Yeah, I lost a lot of respect for him on that one. I wasn’t expecting Jay-Z to say shiznit about his bff Gwyneth but I didn’t expect Nas to come out and defend her. SMH
SMH……just watch this segment and see how Joan Walsh tried to defend the privilege that Dr. James Petersen pointed out about this NSA Surveillance conversation and how Jonathan Alter didn’t even bother…he completely ignored what Dr. Petersen said and pretty much doubled down on the privilege and probably doesn’t even know he did it (but then again, that’s what privilege is)
I try to live my life never having to hear Alter or Miss Ann’s voice ever again…lol.
So tell me what Dr Pete said please!!!!!!!

[Just got back on line.WHEW LAWD! ---[IMMA SUE --- "her Royal Ignance." ---MY COMPUTER's NAME] LOL– -
Joan says, “But we can care about both” but that’s the problem…you don’t. Racial profiling has been going on for YEARS, decades even. How many times have Joan, Alter, GG and the rest of the “Free Snowden” spoken/written about racial profiling? Why are they only raising their voices now about transparency. Like we’ve been saying all along: White “progressives” only care when THEY’RE affected.
What even riles me is that no body, I mean not a single innocent American or foreign residing in America, has been harmed by the allegedly NSA surveillance! This is all manufactured outrage. Some of us oldies know exactly what surveillance looked like during the cold war’s blacklisting and during the 60s and 70s with the FBI surveillance of Black leaders and Black organizations. Actually government surveillance of Black leaders go as far back as the WWI era for people like A. Philip Randolph, W.E. B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey. Until some one can show me concrete evidence that innocent Americans have been spied on during the Obama administration, I refuse to buy into this manufactured hype and outrage.

—–Whitney Houston’s 50th birthday: Most memorable moments (SLIDESHOW)- -
——Today marks what would have been the 50th birthday of legendary singer Whitney Houston.
The chart-topping performer broke onto the scene in 1985 with her first album Whitney Houston.That record-breaking album launched her career in music which would turn into a decades-long profession as one of the industry’s most iconic stars.
Over the span of more than 30 years, Houston earned seven Grammy awards, 22 American Music Awards, 31 Billboard Music Awards and one Academy Award, among many other distinguishing honors.
Her crossover from music to movies also proved Houston’s multi-talented skills with her role in 1992’s The Bodyguard – a movie which featured a record-breaking soundtrack album. She also starred in The Preacher’s Wife and 2012’s Sparkle.
After marrying and divorcing R&B singer Bobby Brown,
welcoming a child and her battles with drug abuse, Houston’s personal life turned public and she became the subject of much scrutiny.
But despite the unexpected and unfortunate news that mad it to the
press, none was more shocking than the reveal of the singer’s death on Feb. 11, 2012.

Authorities Plan to Arrest 2 Former JPMorgan Employees in London Whale Case
By BEN PROTESS and JESSICA SILVER-GREENBERG
Government authorities are planning to arrest two former JPMorgan Chase employees suspected of masking the size of a multibillion-dollar trading loss, a dramatic turn in a case that tarnished the reputation of the nation’s biggest bank and spotlighted the perils of Wall Street risk-taking.
The arrests are expected to take place in London in the coming days, according to people briefed on the matter. The action, the people said, would come on the heels of a federal grand jury voting to indict the employees on criminal fraud charges.
The employees — Javier Martin-Artajo, a manager who oversaw the trading strategy from London, and Julien Grout, a low-level trader responsible for recording the value of the soured bets — could ultimately be extradicted under an agreement with British authorities.
Representatives for the F.B.I. and the United States Attorney’s office in Manhattan declined to comment.

Thank you ! I haven’t seen many “liberal” sites talking about the recent action taken by the justice department against wall street fraud. I guess talking about it would nullify their talking point.
Anything that contradicts their mantra: “Obama sucks” is totally “Disappeared.”
I sincerely hope some Wall Streeters are shitting in their pants right now. God forgive me, I really do.
ok, those in the know, WTF is going on with Tameka Foster. Geez usually judges like to give the children to the mother for primary custody.
I see she lost another one. All I was thinking is what the hell is going on with this chick that a judge won’t even think about awarding her primary custody.
Reince Priebus @Reince9m
Heads up…I’ll be interviewing with @crowleyCNN (Candy Crowley) Sunday am talking about our boycott of CNN, NBC and liberal moderators.
um, so he’s going on CNN so he can talk about boycotting CNN???
Logic is not Rank Paynus’ strength.
I think it’s indictment of both Reince Priebus and CNN.
Maybe he didn’t get the memo. Oh wait..
Wait…you’re going on CNN to talk about boycotting… CNN.

The film’s star, Forest Whitaker is receiving praise for his
portrayal of White House butler Cecil Gaines, a fictional character, based on longtime service worker Eugene Allen.
“Gaines is a tricky role to navigate because the character is so
inherently recessive, but Whitaker digs in deep and gives a marvelous under-the-skin performance,” Scott Fondus wrote for Variety. “He seems to catch the very essence of a man who has spent his whole life trying not to be seen.”
Oprah Winfrey stars as Whitaker’s wife, and a slew of fellow celebrities grace the screen in smaller roles, which in the end may hurt the film. —[That last statement: ---TALK 2 da hand!!]

Lonegan, the former Bogota, N.J. mayor, and Booker are both in the running for a New Jersey Senate seat.

— -Rep. Hank Johnson announces $1.2M grant to help ex-offenders turn their backs on crime –
— – -LITHONIA, GA – Congressman Hank Johnson has just
announced a $1.2 million federal grant to a metro Atlanta community-based project that is committed to helping offenders straighten out their lives.
Standing to Achieve New Directions (STAND, Inc.) will receive the
award from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of the Department of Health and Human Services.j
The non-profit organization, established in 1999, provides services for ex-inmates, with an emphasis on rehabilitating former prisoners and helping repeat offenders break their cycle of crime.
“It’s absolutely critical to bridge a pathway for individuals coming
out of incarceration experiences so they can successfully reintegrate into society,” says Charles Sperling, executive director and founder of STAND.
The grant monies will facilitate a new initiative, launched this
month, to support about 90 newly released inmates every year over a period of three years. The scheme, which is offered on a voluntary basis, will provide a spectrum of resources and support, from behavior health services and housing to employment needs.
“STAND has a proven track record of helping former inmates turn their lives around,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), in a statement. “Encouraging people released from prison to be productive members of society not only strengthens our communities; it saves taxpayers billions of dollars.”

Police in San Diego revealed today that two riders on horseback believe they saw James DiMaggio and Hannah Anderson in the rugged ‘River of No Return Wilderness’ outside Cascade, Idaho, on Wednesday.
Hannah appeared healthy and safe, leading San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore to conclude: ‘As far as we know, it didn’t appear she was being held against her will.’
DiMaggio’s Nissa Versa car was found this morning in a remote, hard-to-reach area. It was covered in brush in an attempt to conceal it and its license plates were removed.

JAY CARNEY RESPONDS BEAUTIFULLY TO A STUPID QUESTION FROM A JACKAL……
Q It is that time of the year again, presidential vacations. And that
means the other party is saying the incumbent party is taking too much
time off. The Republicans are saying President Obama spends too much, is too extravagant on his vacations, that he is spending too much time while other problems are going on. What do you say to that kind of criticism?
MR. CARNEY: I would just check what they said six years ago.
Carney was absolutely perfect! I am sick of the so called mainstream media that cheered Bush on as he lied to take the country to an illegal and unnecessary war, but are now, all of sudden, acting so macho on everything the President does, including just taking a vacation. I bet you many of these media people take longer vacations than the president, who is probably never fully on vacation. These media people are dripping with white privilege!
Major Garrett mentioned twice within a paragraph that the President is going on vacation. The first time he noted it was for a week, not so the second time. They all used to be cutesy about last guy going away for all of August. Whatever.
Shade like a muhfucka.

Today’s America — at least as measured by the actions and inactions of the pariahs who roam its halls of power and the people who put them there — is insular, cruel and uncaring.
In this America, people blame welfare for creating poverty rather than for mitigating the impact of it. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll inJune found that the No. 1 reason people gave for our continuing poverty crisis was: “Too much welfare that prevents initiative.”
In this America, the House can — as it did in July — pass a farm bill that left out the food stamp program at a time when a record number of Americans, nearly 48 million, are depending on the benefits.
In this America, a land of immigrants, comprehensive immigration reform can be stalled in The People’s Branch of government, and anti-reform mouthpieces like Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan can warn that immigration reform will be the end of the country.
