    WHAT IS CAPITALISM?-  POYNTER & ALL PARTICIPATING GUESTS
    THE CHARLESTON MASSACRE: Everything is connected, including the recent NAACP incident in which a young woman tried to pass for Black.  In doing so, she is fulfilling the worst false fear of white supremacy i. e. that being Black is a benefit and that Black people are taking over everything which in turn is connected to capitalism and the materialistic dreams of acquisition.

    Nico Rosberg Takes Win at Formula One Grand Prix in Austria

    in News

    In a dramatic start in turn one, Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg, got out in front of pole sitter Lewis Hamilton, and drove all the way to the finish line, at the Formula One Grand Prix, in Austria. It was a must win race for Rosberg, and in his mind, there was no doubt that he could win. Rosberg’s closest competition since the start of the season has been championship leader and teammate, Lewis Hamilton, followed by fellow German and four-time champion, Sebastian Vettel. Neither if the champions could catch Rosberg on the track or throw him off his game.


    In a desperate bid to win and stay in championship contention, Rosberg did not let anything faze him until the last few laps of the race when he was heard on team radio nervously telling his team he felt vibrations, and asking them to keep an eye on it. Rosberg’s lead was never in jeopardy as he drove a steady, and confident race.  This is Rosberg’s third win of the season, and closes the gap between him and Hamilton to, 10-points for the driver’s championship.


    Lewis Hamilton, in spite of a five-second penalty for crossing the white line going into the pit lane, held on to a second place win. All week long, Hamilton had been experiencing issues with the set-up of the car, but still managed to achieve pole.  Hamilton congratulated his teammate for the win and is looking forward to his home race at Silverstone, in Great Britain. 


    Surprisingly, Williams-Martini driver Felipe Massa was third on the podium, his first of the season, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel came in fourth and Massa’s teammate at Williams, Valtteri Bottas was fifth. 


    Winning in Austria was very much connected to Rosberg’s sense of pride. The Austrian Grand Prix was as close to his birthplace of Germany, as he will get all season, and winning there, was important to him.

    Know Thy Enemy

    in Current Events

    Is ISIS a threat to America? Most Americans feel that all the ISIS activity is in a distant, far away place and has nothing to do with the avarage American going to the store, or filling the car with gas, maybe taking the kids to school, ...well what if your wrong !!!  ...ISIS operatives are likely already inside America, but nobody knows how many, where, or in what capacity. - our border is so porous, and they could easily come across the southern border as thousands of people do every day,. “And they could have Western passports from a country which requires no visa. My guess is there are ISIS fighters in the country doing advance scouting, studying all the preliminary things a professional terror attack takes into account, because a professional terrorist attack takes months to set up.”ISIS is an offshoot of Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). As an October 2014 Congressional Research Service report explained, “The Islamic State’s ideological and organizational roots lie in the forces built and led by the late Abu Musab al Zarqawi in Iraq from 2002 through 2006—Tawhid wal Jihad (Monotheism and Jihad) and Al Qaeda in the Land of the Two Rivers (aka Al Qaeda in Iraq, or AQ-I). Following Zarqawi’s death at the hands of U.S. forces in June 2006, AQ-I leaders repackaged the group as a coalition known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).” In April 2013, having expanded its operations into Syria the year before, the group renamed itself ISIS.
