SORT BY Relevancy
I thought I'd seen it all.
Let me begin with this disclaimer. Under no circumstances do I believe we should belittle people, because they happen to be overweight. There are so many qualities that we should judge people on, besides how much or little they weigh.
That said, it was my utter shock, to see on Ebony's front cover, 5 black women, part of the "Body Brigade", as icons of a new standard of beauty.
Yes, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but how "beautiful" is being obese? Especially, according to the CDC, 57% of black women fall in that category (though I believe the number is higher).
High blood-pressure, heart disease, all of the ailments associated with body fat, that disproportionately affect black women, and Ebony features THIS? The truth be told, this supports my notion, that black lives do NOT matter to black people.
And trust me, interwoven in this encompassing "fat acceptance" narrative, is feminist ideology and victimology.
This has to stop, and now.
In the meantime, the presidential race heats up, with Bernie Saunders, surprisingly, doing better than expected, against Hillary Clinton. But, my premise stands, he is a prop, to make it appear as if Clinton has some opposition. It is staged.
These and much more, on Critical Discourse.

On April 19, 2016 the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security conducted a hearing on the topic, “The Real Victims of a Reckless and Lawless Immigration Policy: Families and Survivors Speak Out on the Real Cost of This Administration’s Policies.” That hearing served as the predication for two of my most recent articles.
On April 25th FrontPage Magazine published my article, “President Obama: Accessory to the Crimes Committed By Illegal Aliens?- The grim findings unveiled by a House congressional hearing.”
Today, April 29 Californians for Population (CAPS) posted my article, “The Real Cost of the Administration’s Reckless, Lawless Immigration Policies.”
There is nothing “compassionate” about not securing our borders and not enforcing our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States. Our borders and immigration laws are our first and last defense against our adversaries including transnational criminals and international terrorists.

You need not go far to see Israel and Palestine is in the news, with the backdrop of freedom as a main theme. We will cover this very hot topic in this edition of Freedom For All. Jim and Jennifer welcome Andrew Meyer. Policy Analyst and Communications Manager at the Rachel Corrie Foundation, a Research Assistant at the Encyclopedia of Women & Islamic Cultures, and an incoming PhD student in Politics at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
The Rachel Corrie Foundation is named after a young woman who was a 23-year-old American peace activist crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer in March 2003 while undertaking nonviolent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.
Meyer's research interests include Settler Colonial theory, the history and historiography of the Palestine question, liberal Zionism in the United States, and political negotiation in the neoliberal present. He is a founding member of Olympia BDS and has traveled extensively throughout the West Bank and Gaza as a member of the International Solidarity Movement and the Maia Mural Brigade.
On April 18, 2016 the US Supreme Court heard arguments pertaining to the lawsuit filed by multiple states over the Obama administration's DAPA program- implemented on a whim by executive order.
On April 19, 2016 the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security conducted a hearing on the topic, “The Real Victims of a Reckless and Lawless Immigration Policy: Families and Survivors Speak Out on the Real Cost of This Administration’s Policies.” I urge you to watch the entire video of that important hearing. Tonight we will consider some of the astonishing facts revealed at that hearing and also consider the Obama administration's contempt for our immigration laws and, consequently the lives and well-being of Americans.
On April 19, 2016 FrontPage Magazine posted my article, “Immigration Failure --By Design: Doing the bidding of the Open Borders anarchists.”
Our immigration laws are fundamental and eminently fair. Those laws make no distinction about race, religion or ethnicity and were originally enacted to protect innocent lives and the jobs of Americans.
