Zack Snyder, the director of the new DC Film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is today's special guest. In this podcast, we discuss the new film, reaction to the film "Man of Steel," the creation of the DC Cinematic Universe. He also addresses conversations he had with Christopher Nolan about not continuing the "Dark Knight" trilogy, plus his feelings on the current DC Television shows, and how characters will evolve on the big screen.
Zack is participating in the 10th and final Crash the Super Bowl contest that will make its final appearance during the Super Bowl. 3 lucky finalists have been vying for consumer votes over the past weeks to win the grand prize. One finalist ad (based on most votes) will air during the Super Bowl and win the creator a $1 mill grand prize and the opportunity to collaborate with Zack Snyder on a future DC Entertainment film. Because the 10th and final Crash the Super Bowl also marks the 50th anniversary of the Doritos brand and the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, Doritos is shaking up the contest this year. The two other finalists will each win a $100,000 prize and opportunity to consult on an upcoming Doritos project.
Founded out of a necessity to protect and insulate our heroes who stand that "Thin Blue Line" between civility and chaos.
For far too long the silent majority stood by and watched as the vocal minority fed their hate into the war on police in America. Now with the birth of yet another hate group (BLM movement) that singles out the 1% of our population that defends the other 99%, LESMA was born.
Our mission is to defend, insulate, represent and support these brave men and woman while they faithfully discharge their duties and sworn oaths. While the majority of the civilized world stands behind them we at LESMA promise to stand in front of them as guardians to our guardians. We promise to take on the battles that often times they themselves are not able to do themselves. To hold the media accountable for their often slanted reporting in order to increase ratings and increase advertising revenue. Holding Politicians accountable for their quick knee jerk reactions and statements that often times place the officers in the crosshairs of ne'er-do-wells. Corporations whose policies and procedures leave officers unfairly protected. To push for legislature that offers enhanced protections to our officers and first responders.
Tonight we will continue to discuss why the Criminal Justice System is not effective here in Amerika.
A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33
It has been about 2 years now, since I began to research and review the facts in the Timothy McEnany case — one of the worst miscarriages of justice in PA history, in my opinion.
McEnany was accused of murdering a Hummelstown woman in March, 1993; and despite mishandling and tampering at the crime scene by the victim’s family, gross errors and misrepresentations of so-called “expert witnesses”, and a litany of inconsistencies longer than your arm, McEnany was tried and found guilty of the crime he didn’t commit.
In this episode, we'll talk about the (poorly) manufactured evidence against McEnany, and the gross inconsistencies in the Commonwealth's case against him. How was this abusrd evidence not challenged?
And be sure to tune into our next program, when we take a look at one of the reasons that might have happened... It's called Incentivised Injustice... and it's all too commonplace in Pennsylvania it seems!
LESMA's special holiday edition. We are going to try to stay away from politics and negative stories, and instead talk about the upcoming holiday season and what it means to those who are so often forgotten- our law enforcement officers- and hopefully bringing a smile to your face while you're preparing for the crazy holiday season...
