CAR THIEF WANTS TO KNOW…”WHERE YA AT”?

According to ABC,” the suspected car thief was being chased by multiple police vehicles in the downtown area when she inexplicably stopped her car, got out, and danced in the street to Future’s “Where Ya At.”

The woman was being pursued by cops for weaving through traffic and running red lights, even blowing a tire as she ran over a spike strip–but it wasn’t until a few moments after her dance break that cops were able to swarm her car and take her into custody.”

Sometimes a few words tell a lot.  Such is the case here.  I just wonder… if this woman had been of a different race and gender, would the end result be the same?  Or would we be talking about a funeral today???  You tell me what you think.

SHAUN KING – THE NEW RACHAEL DOLEZAL?

Do you remember the name Rachael Dolezal? She is the woman who was president of the Seattle, Washington NAACP. She garnered national attention when her biological parents told the world that she was white and not black as she had been pretending.

Let us fast forward to recent news and Shaun King. King has been a very noticeable face of the Black Lives Matter development since the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. King has been accused of not being black as he has claimed. After this information made the news, CNN’s Don Lemon reported that a “family member” had given information that King’s parents are both white. Is this déjà vu?shaunkingbaby                                     Shaun King as a baby (on the right)

The report mentioned a birth certificate obtained from the Kentucky Office of Vital Statistics that lists King’s father as Jeffery Wayne King, who is also white. King has fired back at these accusations by saying that he is in fact biracial. He has also defended his Oprah Scholarship to attend Morehouse College, a historically black school. He indicates that he did not lie about his race to obtain the scholarship.shaunking sophomore

King recently addressed this entire situation by issuing the following statement:

I refuse to speak in detail about the nature of my mother’s past, or her sexual partners, and I am gravely embarrassed to even be saying this now, but I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man. My mother and I have discussed her affair. She was a young woman in a bad relationship and I have no judgment. This has been my lived reality for nearly 30 of my 35 years on earth. I am not ashamed of it, or of who I am—never that—but I was advised by my pastor nearly 20 years ago that this was not a mess of my doing and it was not my responsibility to fix it. All of my siblings and I have different parents. I’m actually not even sure how many siblings I have.

What do you think about this interesting story?  Why does race matter so much?  Is race the issue here?  When will all of this madness stop?

FOUR STUDENTS HACK BOY WITH MACHATE – BURIES HIM ALIVE

miami 1miami 2miami 3miami

Suspects pictured above from left to right Christian Colon 19, Jonathan Lucas 18, Kaheem Arbelo 20, Desiray Strickland 18.  Arbelo and Strickland are said to have stayed behind at the scene to have sex.

 

I got the following article from Daily Mail.com website and this crime is simply atrocious.  There is not a punishment good enough for these monsters who took the life of this young man.  The fact that they lured him into the woods and began to cut him up was bad enough but they then…. buried him alive.  I have no more words…  Check out the article below:

Four Miami, Florida students allegedly hacked a 17-year-old boy to near death with a Machete then buried him alive before two of the teens had sex near the grisly scene.

Desiray Strickland, 18, was arrested on Wednesday making her the fourth suspect charged in the killing of Jose Amaya Guardado, 17, on June 28.

Kaheem Arbelo, 20, Jonathan Lucas, 18, and Christian Colon, 19, confessed to the murder last week following their arrest, said Miami-Dade police. 

Arbelo is a suspected drug dealer at the school. Police expect to arrest a fifth in conjunction with the killing.

Jose Amaya Guardado 17, killed

The Miami Herald likened the arrest report to a scene from the novel Lord of the Flies in which a group of teenagers hunt each other like animals.

The report states that at one point Strickland became angry at the other suspects when they started allegedly hacking the boy to death without her.

She, ‘complained that she had missed the first series of machete strikes because she had walked away for a few minutes to urinate in the woods,’ according to the arrest report.

‘The victim made one last attempt to fight off the attackers,’ a detective wrote, ‘at which time, (Arbelo) struck the victim with the machete several more times until the victim’s face caved in.’

Police say that after the students buried Guardado that Strickland stayed behind with the supposed ringleader of the group Kaheem Arbelo to have sex near the murder scene before going back to the Homestead Job Corps school campus.

Authorities say the students are a part of a known group of bullies at the live-in school and vocational training program run by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Arbelo is an alleged school drug dealer and attack is thought to have stemmed from a debt owed to Arbelo from Guardado.

The school is a program aimed at helping students get high school diplomas along with teaching them skills like masonry and office administration.

‘Safety and security is our top priority,’ said a labor department spokesman.

‘Steps already have been taken to strengthen security at the Homestead center, and Job Corps is reviewing safety and security at all its centers,’ said spokesman Stephen Barr.

Barr said he was ‘deeply saddened’ by the death and would be offering counseling for students.

Jose went missing on June 28 and was found in the woods days later by his brothers who saw two feet in a burned area, reports The New York Daily News.

‘The body was unrecognizable and decomposed,’ cousin Ana Morales wrote on a family fundraising page.

‘His brothers could not resist to see the body. They were crazy with grief hoping it was not Jose.’

Arbelo, Lucas and Colon confessed on video to the killings, but Strickland was not cooperative.

She tried to pick her handcuffs off with screw from a nearby electrical outlet and also head butted an officer.

She etched, ‘MPD Go to Hell’ on the table in the interview room, say police.

Guardado is described as being a shy and ‘peaceful young man.’

‘A crime is bad, but what Jose suffered was horrible,’ wrote his cousin Ana Morales. 

 

MEMORIAL DAY: WHAT A MESS

Memorial day is a time to honor our veterans yet there is at least one community that is outraged at a fraud by one of their neighbors.  The guy in this video is apparently perpetrating a fraud and is now being exposed.  There are a lot of people who are now cynical about giving because of people like this.  A non-profit that built a specially-adapted house for wounded Army veteran Justin Perez-Gorda is now ‘weighing its options’, after  stories of the severity of his injuries are now in question.  Perez-Gorda has been seen walking by several neighbors and has even been caught on film unloading wood from his SUV.  I won’t insult you with anymore of the details as you can watch the video for yourself. Passed: To qualify for the home, Perez-Gorda (right) completed the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs grant process and passed a background check

Home: In December 2013, the organization, which builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes for severely injured war veterans, presented the family with a customized home in Dripping Springs, Texas

PREACH

There’s a new preacher’s reality show coming to Lifetime and I’m not sure what to say about the above trailer.  There are four “prophetesses” in this particular show.  They are:  Belinda Scott (Cleveland Heights, Ohio); Taketa Williams (Columbus, Ohio); Linda Roark (Trenton, Ohio); and Kelly Crews (Cleveland, Ohio).

“Preach” is the latest Christianity-based offering of  reality shows.  There was TLC’s “The Sisterhood” (cancelled after one season), Oxygen’s Preachers of LA (my favorite), and the spinoff Preacher’s of Detroit (I also like). Lifetime has also been showing “Preacher’s Daughtrers” for three seasons.  Check out the trailer above and let me know if you’ll be watching…..

 

CREFLO DOLLAR RESPONDS…

crazy-creflo

I really have no words for this comical dose of spiritual manipulation that’s served on a  platter of “the devil’s trying to discredit me”.  Sometimes people USE church for the wrong thing and that’s to manipulate money out of the parishioner’s pockets.

It’s been about a month since televangelist Creflo Dollar made headlines after his campaign for supporters to buy him a $65 million dollar plane. “If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me,” Dollar told his followers. “You cannot stop me from dreaming. I’m gonna dream until Jesus comes.”

Below is a video from his church showing Dollar blasting his critics of his short-lived campaign to raise the $65 million dollars for his new jet.

BABY BORN PREGNANT WITH TWINS

pregnant with twins
A baby born pregnant with twins?  When I first saw this, I thought for sure that this must be one of those made-up tabloid stories.  After reading it an looking further into the story, I found it to be quite true.  The rare condition is called fetus-in-fetu, and fewer than 200 cases have been documented to date.
According to a report in the Hong Kong Medical Journal, when the little girl was born (at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong in 2010) doctors originally thought that she had two tumors in her abdomen.  They were quite surprised to find that there were two fetuses instead.  As a matter of fact, the fetuses were quite developed.  They each had a spine, intestines, bones with bone marrow, “primitive” brain matter, an anus, a rib cage and an umbilical cord.  How did the little girl get pregnant? “Since it is impossible for the little girl to have conceived the pregnancy on her own, the fertilization of the twin fetuses, of course, belongs to her parents, which has gone to the wrong place,” Dr. Yu Kai-man told the South China Morning Post.  At three weeks old, the baby underwent surgery to remove the twins.  The twins, according to reports, had gestated up to 10 weeks.

NEW YORK PASTOR/COP ARRESTED: SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MINOR

This is absolutely crazy but true.  A 38-year old Bronx NY police officer who is also a pastor has been arrested for having an affair with a 16 year old girl.  The affair allegedly lasted approximately 7 months and he met the young teen at a youth church program.

pastor cop

According to NY Daily News reports:

Officer Vladimir Sosa, a seven-year NYPD veteran, was arraigned Tuesday night in Bronx Criminal Court on third-degree rape, sexual misconduct and child endangerment charges.

Sosa is an evangelist who studied theology at the United Christian College in North Carolina, according to his Facebook page.

He is affiliated with the Iglesia Metodista Libre El Remanente on E. 180th St. in Tremont, the Bronx, where he met the teen, but often travels to preach at other houses of worship, said colleague Fernando Gonzalez, who helped found the church in 2001.

Gonzalez couldn’t believe the charges the Bronx cop is facing.

“It’s not true,” he said, adding that he’s always trusted Sosa with his three daughters. “It’s being made up.”

“Vladimir might have been trying to help the female in question with her spiritual life,” he said. “It might have happened that because of her young age, she confused the situation.

Apparently the girls mother found some questionable texts between her daughter and the cop and she confronted her daughter.  The girl admitted the affair to her mom who in turn got the police involved.  The arrested pastor/cop, Sosa, claims that he is innocent and has never been alone with the young lady.  However, a family friend of the girl who wants to remain anonymous says that is far from the truth.

“She’s doing very bad … she used to be a top student, a virgin, a girl that was in love with God and this man seduced her,” said a family friend of the girl, who also knew Sosa. “She is crying, very depressed … I can say that he destroyed her life.”

The three times that Sosa allegedly had consensual sex with the young lady happened at the apartment that Sosa shares with his mother.  Sosa was arrested and released on his own recognizance.

I can’t wait for your feedback on this one.  This is wrong on so many levels.

 

MONEY AND CHURCH IN THE NOW…

CHURCH

Today is Sunday and many people attend the church of their choice.  Most churches are filled with mostly women.  I’m not really sure why.  A lot of “salesmen” typically cater…to women for one reason or another.   What I am sure about is that churches are BIG BUSINESS!  Not only that,  though I do attend church regularly, I find that there seems to be an issue in part with organized religion.

One of the major problems with organized religion is this money component that seems to be extremely prevalent.  I’ve heard of many pastors who not only preach but they also handle the purse strings at their church as well.  This leads to “absolute power” and… as I heard stated earlier in life:  ABSOLUTE POWER RUINS!  When I first heard this phrase, I really did not understand it.  As I grew older and exposed to various and sundry things, I certainly came upon the realization of what that phrase means.

When an individual has ABSOLUTE POWER it brings about corruption.  One would think that the church would be the last place that you would find corruption, yet that is not the case.  I think we all have seen news stories where preachers have been arrested for taking money from their congregation.  Recently a Delaware pastor, Eric Sapp was sentenced to 5 years probation  for stealing more than $56,000 from Grace Baptist Church. In Houston, an associate pastor, Russell Thompson, is charged with felony theft of $250,000.  In Cleveland, Pastor Merita White, was convicted of stealing $150,000 from a member of her congregation, Mattie Cunningham. There are more stories of this than I care to repeat.

Basically, organized religion often causes competition between different religions and it forces people to lose focus on the major theme set forth in the Bible.  That theme is LOVE. There are many who call some of these pastors PIMPS IN THE PULPIT because of their emphasis on dollars rather than biblical sense.

I am posting the top 10 list of the richest pastors in the world.  I think this list is from a year ago and I’m pretty sure that Joel Olsteen is in the top 10 but they do not have him on this list.  I think I saw somewhere that his net worth is estimated at $40 million dollars.  Am I saying that they are stealing from their congregations?  Most definitely not!  What I am saying is that the church of today is BIG BUSINESS and… everything you see, is not what you see.  I hope you see what I mean.

MORE REALITY?…

About a week ago I introduced a trailer for a reality show that is trying to get picked up by a television station. I’m not sure that they will ever make it to television but I certainly am prepared to show you episode 1 on studiotj. Yes of course it’s a mess but I’ve got to show you that everything that you see… is not what you see. I hope you caught that nugget. You’ve got to learn to trust GOD and not any man or woman on this planet. If you don’t get anything from what I said, get that!!! You’ve got to let me know what you think. There’s more to come.
