Pride and Prejudice

While Obama was delivering his speech at the British Parliament in the United Kingdom, I stumble upon these overly apologetic and hubris tweets by LeVar Burton, better known as the blind guy in Star Trek The Next Generation.

  • I am SO proud of my President in this moment!!! #statesman #worldleader #blackman
  • Historic speech before both Houses of Commons in UK… and he’s killin’ it! RT @macguyinnc Could you clarify as to why?
  • For those who have questioned my comment… I am proud not only because Obama is a black man, but because I am too!!!

As a Buddhist and a scholar, and I know that such hubris, attachment, and blind allegiance to someone based on color, religion, ethnicity has been at the heart of genocide, war, and discrimination. My natural response to blind partisanship is satire and so I tweeted the following.

  • @levarburton I thought you were proud because you are Obama’s mom.
  • @levarburton are you also proud of African despots, dictators, and tyrants?
  • @levarburton I am proud not only because Obama is a rich elitist working for corporate America, but because I am too!!!

Now interestingly enough, the comments made by LeVar Burton came less than a week of an interview on 60 Minutes with Al Sharpton who said outright that he and his National Action Network are not critical of President Obama, as he has been with ever other president, because of color of the President.

I don’t judge the President by the color of his skin but by whether or not he has keep his campaign promises. President Obama promised to get our troops out of Iraq, to close down Gitmo, and fix the broken economy and yet we still have troops in Iraq, prisoners in Gitmo, and Goldman Sachs running Wall Street.

The Ghetto Guru

Twitter has brought the nuttiness out of the woodwork from celebrities. Part of the problem is that celebrities are not authentic when using Twitter, or they are just crazy. People know when a celebrity is not one hundred or real, even in a 140 character tweet. For example, if you rap about drug dealing but tweet about vitamin water it is clear that you ain’t a thug but a corporate shill. Case in point is Russell Simmons, the Ghetto Guru. Russell Simmons, or @UncleRUSH on Twitter, co-founded DefJam Records, is said to be the riches man in Hip-Hop, was peripheral to epic rap battles and all he tweets about is a mix of quotes from the Bhagavad Gita and self help mumbo jumbo. Without a doubt what he has done in the with Def Jam and Phat Farm is inspirational, but his tweets are not inspirational if they make him sound like a fake ass Ghetto Guru. To be honest, most of his audience and followers (except his eleet friends) don’t know what the hell the Bhagavad Gita is.

When people from the hood say to you “don’t ever change” this is what they mean, don’t be a Rusell Simmons.

Here are a few select tweets from the @UncleRUSH twitter account as of May 19.

  • “There is no joy in small thinking.” Maharishi
  • Don’t be small be expansive, Give for the sake of giving..
  • “Operate from abundance”Neediness pushes away your blessings and is the cause of all suffering
  • You get what u give .. But u don’t have to reap where u sew.
  • “You have contoll over the action alone, but never the fruit”. Krishna Bhagavad-Gita
  • Consistent Good karmic work, daily yoga and daily meditation are some good suggestions given from the Masters
  • Inner peace does not come as a whim.. Just as one push will not create muscles.
  • Today practice loving everyone and everything (enemies&struggle included) but hang w/people and in places that uplift u
  • Another day… Another chance to make things right
  • Things turn out the best for those who do the best with how things turn out..

Pronpaganda

For over two days, the top news item from network news to algorithm powered Google News has been, wait for it, Osama’s porn stash. I can’t believe that elite secret US commandos kill the world’s most wanted criminal, reportedly kill him unarmed and possibly by shooting him from behind the head, dump his body in the ocean probably with a set of cement shoes, captured a ‘treasure trove’ of material such as notebooks and hard drives, and all that is released by the government is that Osama had some secret porn stash. Osama is was a grown man who took credit for the deaths of thousands, I honestly don’t care about the guys sexual fantasies.

Here is a list of disinformation and psyops from the CIA I don’t care to see in my morning news about Osama bin Laden.

  • That Osama eat kittens for breakfast.
  • That Osama didn’t pay taxes.
  • That Osama didn’t have Wifi.
  • That Osama didn’t live It’s a Wonderful Life.
  • That Osama put out a fatwa on Lady Gaga.
  • That Osama wants people to “leave Britney alone.”
  • That Osama hates the Teletubies.
  • That Osama is a Lakers fan.

The Osama bin Laden Assassination Fact Sheet

Who is Osama bin Laden?
Osama bin Laden is a Suadi national. He was born into a wealthy family in Saudia Arabia. In 1979, Osama took part in the mujahideen freedom fighters in Afghanistan and fought against the invading Soviet army. Osama later founded the al-Qaeda organization and took credit of the 9-11 terror attack.

Is Osama bin Laden a Saudi Royal?
No. Osama is not a member of the Saudi royal family but the bin Laden family has strong ties with them.

Was Osama a CIA Asset?
It has been documented that the CIA was actively involved in covert activities against the Soviets in Afghanistan. The CIA trained and armed the Afghan mujahideen to fight the Soviet invasion force. During this time, Osama would have been in contact with the CIA which had the same object of getting the Soviet army out of the region.

Was Osama the Mastermind of the September 11, 2001 Attack on the United States?
Osama bin Laden and al-Queda took credit for the September, 11, 2001 attack on the United States.

Why did Osama bin Laden Attack the United States on September, 11, 2001?
The overly simplified answer to why Osama bin Laden attacked the United States was is that he was retaliating against the what United States foreign policy, most notably the first Gulf War and the US sponsored embargo targeting the Saddam Hussein regime.

Was the Killing of Osama bin Laden an Assassination?
The killing of Osama is a Chicago-style assassination straight out of the mafia’s playbook. People still want to know where Jimmy Hoffa is buried. Also remember that the Navy SEALS Team Six is an extraction team and came out of the failed 1980 attempt to rescue American hostages at the U.S. Embassy in Iran. Multiple reports have stated that Osama was not armed when he was shot dead with two precise kill shots, in the head and chest.

Why Was Osama bin Laden Assassinated?
Killing Osama and dumping his body in the ocean is the best cover, no body, no questions, no evidence. Osama had already fulfilled his usefulness to the organization so he was executed. Also, capturing him a live would present future political problem for Obama such as where to jail Osama, what court should try him, would it be okay to torture him, etc.

Is Osama bin Laden a Martyr?
In the middle east, just about anybody that dies, whether from a motorcycle accident to accidental self inflected gun wound is a martyr.

Was the Assassination of Osama bin Laden Justified?
No. Multiple report have stated that Osama was not armed and did not resist

Is There Pictures and Video of Osama’s bin Laden Death?
Yes. The picture released by the White House shows the President and his security team looking towards and captivated by a large monitor. The President most likely had multiple video and audio streams from the source. Also, it is common practice by police and military to photograph themselves with their ‘trophy’, either high value individuals or large number or confiscated guns or drugs. For example, we have a lot of pictures of Operation Red Dawn and the the capture of Saddam Hussein including images of service men triumphantly posing for pictures at the site where Saddam was capture, there are picture of his medical examination, etc.

Did President Barrack Obama Break International Laws in Assassinating Osama bin Laden?
Simply put, the constitution does not grant any president to send troops into another country which we have not declared war on to capture or kill any person. Only congress has the right to declare war, we are not going to declare war on Pakistan.

Is al-Queda a Threat to the United States?
al-Queda is a moderate threat. The al-Queda as it existed pre-9-11 has been destroyed with most of its leader dead or captured but there will always be lose knit organization in the region that will still continue to dislike American foreign policy in the region, including the fact that we went into a sovereign nation to assassinate Osama. Extremists groups such as al-Queda are a tool used by different governments to achieve different goals at different times in the covert and proxy war that is fought by regional powers.

Will the Department of Homeland Security Ease Security Restrictions?
No. Once you go black op, you never go back. There has been so much money made by too many people in the development, sale, and maintenance of naked body scanners for any agency to ease up their spending budget. The tight security restrictions are more about control over the populace than about securing the country. The power enacted by the Patriot Act have more often been used against Americans than your typical billionaire run international islamafacist terrorist organization.

America’s Open Secrets

Most politicians have skeletons in their closets, you almost have to be a successful politicians. Politicians don’t only know where the bodies are buried, they often order them buried. To win elections you need money and money don’t come cheap. Politicians will debate each other on foreign policies, tax increases, education cuts but like the mafia, they don’t snitch on each other. The media is a complicit to this, the media in a sense is the reference, dirty and has money riding on the results and as such it chooses not to question or address certain aspects of a politician’s life. For example, just about everyone close to JFK’s administration knew about his philandering ways but no one mentioned it. That is why I was surprised when the media took up the debate of President Obama’s birth certificate. I mean, there are real issues facing America and the late night local news does not mention these, but they sure did spend a lot of time alluding to the birthplace of President Obama. This made me think, what other open secrets is the media keeping? What other issues are the media choosing to neglect for soft piece on the royal wedding?
