Lawsuit for millions and millions of dollars. Think that even makes an oil conglomerate blink? Hardly! Real question is… Where is the humanity?! If you got it for the clean-up, when the courts force you, why not spend the money PROTECTING the people?
(Wait. Don’t answer. I think I already know. Sickening…)
A Nigerian tribal king has taken oil giant Shell to court in London. Here’s why.
– Al Jazeera English
Long Live The Chief! Watch him work. Shame on you Shell! Immeasurable amounts of oil spilled. Land made wasteland. Militarization and the killing of Ken Saro-Wiwa. On you (and the Nigerian government)!
Another great segment checked in by Roland Martin. Dr. Hadiyah Green has me SPEECHLESS! BRILLIANCE! BEAUTY! She’s my new true crush. She is everything of the essence of Ernest Everett Just, Daniel Hale Williams, Charles Drew… all the pioneering geniuses of 20th Century medicine… carried into the 21st Century. I hope and pray that she, and folks like her, can continue to push through the b.s. and CURE CANCER NOW!
(Did you see the part where she got her treatment proposal ready, and “they” told her that no one would back her methods without including a drug??? ARE YOU $%&!ing SERIOUS??!! Maannnn… you MUST watch!)
The election is over & we all know the outcome of that, but Killer Mike is perfect in responding to a TMZ photographer who ran up on him in the airport….from Australia.

Well, here it is… After about 8 years of cosigning, campaigning, contributing and cajoling… Bill Maher gets a sit-down with the President Of The United States aka POTUS aka President Barack Hussein Obama!
President Barack Obama sits down with Bill Maher on the eve of the election to discuss the issues Real Time viewers care about. Original air date: November 4, 2016.
Great conversation! Cannot say it was worth the wait because a lot of this talk has been said by the President and his administration all along. After watching, you’ll probably agree that (while a studio appearance would have been awesome & appreciated) this choice of format and venue (directed Q&A at the White House with plenty of time to talk) was the best way to go. We get to hear all of what the President had to say in response to all of what Maher wanted to ask on his viewers’ behalf.
You REALLY want to watch the ENTIRE interview, especially if you are an American (regardless of party, belief, etc.).
Political Pundit Alex Jones Interviews Danny Williams, Who Says He Is Bill Clinton’s Biological Son (Video)
When Bill Clinton was Arkansas’ Governor, Danny Williams recalls being a kid taken to the Gubernatorial Mansion, then dragged away abruptly by his mother (Bobbie Ann Williams); an encounter that parabolizes the Clintons’ supposed denial of then-Governor Clinton’s extramarital son… That is what the Williams story being played on this the Alex Jones Show clip above purports. Williams goes further to say that Hillary Clinton pretty much banished him from seeing his biological father.
Now, we cannot know the truth with 100% certainty, unless folks are ready to take that trip and see Maury (ha!). But consider the source, as you consider the above vid from all angles. Why put this out? Who is served? It certainly serves Jones’ need for eyeballs on his channel. And Williams, if what he claims is true, could be seeking a public remedy for a grievance that would never have likely been resolved privately. We already know President Bill Clinton’s past has extramarital activity in it. Hmmm…
Oh, wait… Isn’t Bill’s wife Hillary the presumptive favorite in a Presidential election? Would Jones, Republican opponent Donald Trump, and/or those aligned with either/both of them, like to muddy the waters on the Democratic candidate’s side given Trump’s poll plummet?
Who’s to say? One might say this, though… freeze-framing Williams and looking at a young Governor Clinton… there could be some resemblance. Interesting.
But what do YOU think? That is all that really matters; now, and on into November.
(And, “It is really not my concern,” is an acceptable answer. Just saying.)
Here at Jayforce.com we love Music Festivals and discovering new talent. So I was invited to cover Secret Stages 2016 a Music Discovery Festival in Birmingham, AL. This is a two day festival with over 75 acts performing on multiple stages. One of the artists I was looking forward to was Lando Chill a young talented Rapper, Singer, Songwriter. He is Chicago born and raised now living in Tuscon and recently signed with Mello Music Group. I caught up with him before his show and discussed his style, inspiration and putting new album out. I also have some live footage of his showcase that I caught while in Birmingham. His new album just released today “For Mark, Your Son” on Mello Music Group available on all digital outlets. I had the pleasure to discover him and his music after this interview you will want to discover more of his music as well.
The classic album Reachin (A New Refutation of Time & Space) was released in 1992/1993. This was an iconic year for me because I graduated high school in 1993. At this point I was a bonafide lover of Hip Hop and the Digable Planets helped to make that love stronger with this classic work. The only problem was at that time I lived in Montgomery and there was no way that the Brooklyn trio would be doing a show in the capital city of Alabama.
Fast forward 23 years and I continue to love Hip Hop and now even meet & interview artists that I love. While back home in Montgomery visiting family the planets align for me literally. I see that a show is listed to rock in Birmingham, AL an hour away Wednesday July 20th. Without hesitation I purchase ticket online hop in the ride 65 N bound to finally see one of my favorite groups live.
Release Of DNC Emails Proves Bias Against Bernie Sanders Campaign And Cost Party Chair Her Job (Video)
Bernie Sanders says the release of DNC emails underscore the position he’s held for months: party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to go.
(UPDATE: And now she is. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been ‘quarantined’ and will resign her post.)
Damn, DNC. See why we #FeelTheBern now? Because we feel that y’all are full of that bullsh!t. To be certain, Debbie was just a cyst, the cancer is still within the Democratic Party. Damn and damn it!
To his credit, Senator Sanders is still being the grown up in the room of school gossips: He is still pledging still to back Hillary Clinton and help defeat Trump. Aligned with the party whose leadership tacitly backs those who would malign him.
Wow. Just. Wow. You KNOW the Conservative media and RNC will be all over this, as they should be. DAAAAMMMN!

DUDE! It’s like he had a powered heart. A Tony Stark heart. Like Iron Man but without the ‘Arc Reactor’ part. But seriously, the bleak picture of a heart disease patient waiting for an organ – sickly, hospitalized 24-7 the whole duration of the wait – could be a thing of the past! Watch this medical miracle gone sensational viral video… and be amazed!
A 24-year-old man survived 555 days without a heart with the help from a portable artificial heart.
No tricks. No gimmicky headline to draw eyes on the ‘net. Marshawn Lynch, Super Bowl Champion, Seattle Seahawks standout, Beast Mode… is retiring. Tells 60 Minutes Sports’ Jon Wertheim and all the viewers straight up and down that he is done with the game after nine seasons.
“I’m done. I’m not playing football anymore.”

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Ali stepped into the world’s spotlight by winning a gold medal as a light-heavyweight at the 1960 Rome Olympics. He would go on to defeat Sonny Liston in 1964 to claim his first world title and became the first boxer to capture a world heavyweight championship on three separate occasions. Retiring in 1981, Ali won 56 of his 61 fights as an active professional. However, his accolades do not stop there. Sports Illustrated recognized Ali as “Sportsman of the Century,” and the BBC named him “Sports Personality of the Century.”
Though later more understated as an elder statesman of sport, remembering Ali’s boldness and bigger-than-life presence over the years is what is likely driving the water from your tear ducts now. Even now you hear his braggadocio echo…
I float like a butterfly; sting like a bee.
I am The Greatest!
I shook up the WORLD!
I’m a bad man!
But he was also a champion for Civil Rights and Human Rights the world over. An outspoken member of the Nation Of Islam, a conscious objector to the war in Vietnam (convicted for his stance), a goodwill ambassador (notably meeting Fidel Castro when U.S. – Cuba relations were still very cold) and so much more. Too much more to do justice to his legacy in this Memoriam, but please, if you will, say one more time as he would, “The Champ is here!”
Then, in spirit, join with mourners around the world dealing with the reality that The Champ is with us no more. Hit the jump for some remembrances, quotes and video footage.
Rest Well, Champ.
A new report from Seton Hall Law School Center for Policy & Research has found that in the majority-white municipality of Bloomfield, New Jersey, nearly 80 percent of traffic tickets are issued to African American and Latino drivers.
The report also found that most tickets were issued to non-resident minority drivers passing through town, suggesting a “de facto border patrol” policing policy is in effect.
The Bloomfield Police Department — which has begun collecting data on the race of drivers in traffic stops as of January 2016 — rejects the report’s findings.
VICE News reports on Seton Hall’s methodology and on the experience of minority drivers in Bloomfield.

What’s lacking is a professional sports team. What’s particularly lacking is the Las Vegas Raiders.
Wow. Now, that’s a pitch video! Las Vegas is putting it out there. The entertainment capital of the world wants a Dome now: For major events AND FOR A PRO FOOTBALL FRANCHISE! Well, will the Raiders ‘happen’ in Vegas? Because you know: What happens in Vegas…
Next time someone asks, “What’s so special about Atlanta?” grab their smartphone (or get them here online somehow) and show them this. Then, right as the clip is ending, tell them, “Oh… and Atlanta’s got the SuperBowl coming… AGAIN!”
