Comedy: Samuel L. Jackson Says “Wake The F*@k Up” & Vote For President Barack Obama (Video)

Hahaaaa! This is Samuel L. Jackson being SAMUEL L. JACKSON. “Wake the F**k Up” is a new political ad from the Jewish Council for Education & Research, a liberal PAC (Political Action Committee). Hilarious! But it makes the point! The ad was written by Adam Mansbach, the same author behind the satirical children’s book “Go the F**k to Sleep,” for which Jackson did a similarly styled audiobook recording (see the explicit version of the “children’s story” after the jump).

VICE: Renegade Jewish Settlers (Documentary)

“Israeli settlers have been slowly nibbling away at Palestine’s West Bank territory for more than 30 years. 300,000 settlers now occupy illegal outposts that range in size from plywood shacks to full-blown suburban housing complexes. Their abundance has grounded the much-ballyhooed two-state solution to a halt. In this documentary, VICE correspondent Simon Ostrovsky travels from Tel Aviv to the remote West Bank outposts where young Israelis squat for the sake of their heritage.” – VICE

Politics: Mitt Romney Tells Millionaire Donors What He REALLY Thinks of Obama Voters (Video)

WOW! This is Willard Mitt Romney – raw, uncut, and unapologetic about his disregard and disrespect of nearly half of his fellow citizens! In the vignettes above and after the jump – video secretly recorded at a 50,000-dollar-a-plate Republican fundraiser first published on nonprofit watchdog blog Mother JonesMr. Romney lumps all Obama voters into a mass of shiftless moochers who don’t contribute much, if anything, to society. Among other horrible things he goes on to say, Mr. Romney quips that he might have been better off if his dad, who was born in Mexico, had actually been of Mexican descent… you know, to get some of that Latino vote his campaign needs.

Of course, Mr. Romney had to tell supporters in attendance that he could not speak about Obama in public the way he could there for fear of insulting independent voters who sided with Obama in 2008 (whom he needs to have a chance of winning in November). Good thing (for America) there was a “spy” in the room…recording the real Mitt Romney. Otherwise, many of us might have gone on thinking he was a “decent guy” who simply had different ideas than President Obama… with no idea how WRONG we would have been!

Want to know what is worse? That Mr. Romney has FINALLY said what a significant portion of Republican voters believe to be gospel truth! So he CANNOT really apologize for what he said, as he might lose their support (a point Judd Legum of brilliantly made this morning on Current TV’s Full Court Press a.k.a. The Bill Press Show)! Mr. Romney did, however, make an attempt to back-track his awful comments… sort of… not really (read about it here)…

Cover Story: Man Who Armed Black Panthers Was FBI informant (Video)

Richard Masato Aoki, the man journalist Seth Rosenfeld reports gave the Black Panther Party some of its first firearms and weapons training, was an undercover FBI informer, according to a former bureau agent and an FBI report. One of the Bay Area’s most prominent radical activists of the era, Aoki was known as a fierce militant who touted his street-fighting abilities; even before aligning himself with the Black Panther Party. Now, whether the evidence is shared in this video is borne of the misinformation campaign carried out as part of J. Edgar Hoover’s CoIntelPro (e.g. the Counter-Intelligence Program carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigations) or not is left for you to decide. But this is definitely an interesting watch.

New Voter ID Laws Take Us Back To The ‘Jim Crow’ Era (Video)

Supposedly, new Voter ID laws are being pushed into place “to reduce instances of voter fraud.” But many have said, on record, that voter fraud is NOT even a real problem. Now, fraudulent practices with vote COUNTING… Well, that’s another Bush election altogether. Fact: Requiring NEW forms of ID to combat voter fraud has the effect, intended or not, of DENYING THE RIGHT TO VOTE in key segments of the population! Keesha Gaskins and Michael Waldman from the Brennan Center for Justice sat down on PBS’ Moyers & Company to explain. Using new research, Waldman and Gaskins argue these laws represent “the first rollback of voting rights since the Jim Crow era.”

Watch… so you’ll be ready for the next “slick” argument for the way voter ID laws are being pushed today!


And if you think that the Black, Hispanic, elderly, and poor votes that will be lost is some kind of “unintended result” of this new type of legislation keep reading…

Economist Dambisa Moyo Says China Beating the U.S. By Investing In Emerging Markets on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ (Video)

Damn, I HAVE SUCH A CRUSH on Dr. Dambisa Moyo, International Economist from The Gambia (Africa). Don’t tell me intelligence isn’t SEXY. Whew! Maaannn, I would have listed her as Eye Candy (because she is); but I want you to focus on what she is saying first. Among other points made: The way in which China (as the world’s largest remaining Communist power) is engaging emerging economies is MORE POPULAR and MORE EFFECTIVE than that of the Western World (e.g. of the United States). We must listen and learn; or to quote a favorite artist of mine, “Get right or Get Left!” (Shout out to Anderson Scott of The 5ive.)

ILL Doctrine: Jay Smooth Speaks On Why People Like Actress Gwyneth Paltrow Should Leave The ‘Nuh’ Word Alone (Video)

One of my favorite commentators on what’s going on in the world is definitely fellow hip hop radio show host Jay Smooth over at WBAI in New York City. He does a great job on political & social commentary on his blog but in the last year or two he had taken a break from his video blogs for quite a while . I was pleasantly surprised to see someone on twitter retweet his latest commentary on the Gwyneth Paltrow “N*ggas In Paris” twitter controversy. As always I agree with Jay Smooth 100% percent with what he says in the above video. R&B singer The-Dream, who was with the actress at the Kanye & Jay-Z’s show in Paris, claims he was responsible for the “N*ggas” tweet from actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s cellphone. Who knows really, but it does provide a lesson for everyone that Jay Smooth puts into words perfectly. Hopefully Jay Smooth doesn’t disappear on us too much with the video commentaries now that he’s back to doing them regularly.

Dan Rather Speaks With Bill Maher On How ‘Corporate Media’ Is Killing The Truth To The People (Video)

I watched this last Friday night on Bill Maher’s show & found it to be very interesting to see former CBS news anchor Dan Rather speaking on how corporate media is being controlled by Washington. It’s something that many of us already know, but to hear a veteran journalist like Dan Rather who worked for years in news speak on it is an great exclamation point to the problem due to a lack of transparency.

President Obama ‘Slow Jams The News’ On The Jimmy Fallon Show (Video)

President Barack Obama stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s show last night while they were taping at UNC last night. The Roots joined the commander-in-chief to a rousing applause from the fans in the audience. “APELL NOOOO!” “The Barack-Ness Monster”….and the President drops the mic like ‘Sexual Chocolate’….Hahahaaaa!

French Presidential Candidate Uses ‘N*ggaz In Paris’ As Campaign Song (Video)

I’m still shaking my head that Kanye & Jay Z’s “N*ggaz In Paris” song title couldn’t have been more creative with the ‘Paris’ theme. Now a French presidential candidate is using it in his campaign. The explicit version at that. Now you have to pause to wonder are they celebrating/laughing with us or at us….
