THE WEEK

1. Obama-appointed prosecutor fired after refusing to resign
New York U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara was fired by the Trump administration Saturday after he refused to resign at the request of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who on Fridayasked for the resignation of 46 Obama-appointed district attorneys in the Justice Department. It is routine for incoming administrations to ask these attorneys, who are political appointees, to step down, though Sessions’ request was unexpectedly abrupt, and some attorneys reportedly were not privately informed before the public statement. So far, Bharara is the only attorney to refuse to resign when asked. “I did not resign,” he tweeted Saturday. “Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in [the Southern District of New York] will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.”

WHAT DO TO

Immigration Agents Discover New Freedom to Deport Under Drumpf

The Drumpf Republican administration’s far-reaching plan to arrest and deport vast numbers of undocumented immigrants has been introduced in dramatic fashion over the past month.

And much of that task has fallen to thousands of ICE officers who are newly emboldened, newly empowered and already getting to work.

Gone are the Obama-era rules that required them to focus only on serious criminals.

Social action organization Global Citizen somehow just made Adele’s hit song “Hello” even better
In a new video published this February, Global Citizen re-imagines Adele’s “Hello” as a call to Congress to protest President Drumpf’s executive orders. The video features an Adele look-a-like wearing a fur coat belting out tunes with the wind in her hair, singing into a phone … the lyrics are just a bit different.

“Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if you had some time to support refugees,” the woman sings into a flip phone.

“We can go over everything. Like how they aren’t terrorists, they’re only frightened folks in need.”

The chorus is possibly the best part

“Hello from the other side! If I have to, I’ll call a thousand times! Til you listen to us, we’ll never leave you alone. But when I call Paul Ryan, he never seems to be home.”

Maluma: He was going to be a soccer player. Now he’s the latest Latin pop star.


MALUMA … great music! Talent …

Repeating Islands

A report by Jordan Levin for Miami.com.

Shakira, Juanes, J Balvin, Carlos Vives – Colombia has produced some of Latin music’s biggest stars.

The latest is Maluma, a reggaeton-pop hearthrob whose sweet tenor, sexy videos, and muscled body (he trained to be a soccer player before he switched to music) have made him one of the hottest new acts in Latin America since he burst onto the scene in 2011 at age 17. Six years later the 23-year-old singer is an online powerhouse, with 20 million Instagram followers, 23 million Facebook likes/fans and 4 billion views on Youtube for videos like his latest hit, “Sin Contrato.” Now Maluma has set his sights on El Norte. His latest album has an English title, “Pretty Boy Dirty Boy,” and his first U.S. tour, which kicked off with three sold out shows in Texas last week, hits the Fillmore Miami Beach…

Thoughts for today, #476 …. “Right Wing: you don’t get it, do you? …. “!!


RWing

~~March 12, 2017~~ 

THE RIGHT WING 

Seems to me the ‘right wing‘ cares more about themselves than others in every way.

They are about keeping the classes separate.

The right wing is a destructive force versus the left wing which is a constructive force.

I’m a proud progressive, liberal left-winger.

According to The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Politics, in liberal democracies, the political Right opposes socialism and social democracy.

Right-wing parties include conservatives, Christian democrats, classical liberals, nationalists and, on the far Right, racists and fascists.

The general consensus among political scientists is that “left wing” includes liberals, progressives, socialists and communists, and the “right wing” includes conservatives, traditionalists, reactionaries and fascists.

Miracle. All of it.


Amazing beauty!!

Live & Learn


Nick Kontostavlakis : Μy last trip to Norway during February, 2017. The Lofoten Archipelago is spread on the northwest side of Norway, very close to the borders of the Arctic Circle. It is a cluster of small fishing villages and is often called “the Foot of the lynx” because of its shape. The islands are full of legends, maybe because of their natural beauty and their mysterious landscapes, or maybe because there the Sun either never rises or never sets. The only thing you can hear is the thousand voices of birds, the wind and the sound of the sea. That combination of the landscape which comes into view every morning and the sounds of nature is a priceless experience that fills you with energy and inspiration for the whole day, no matter what you have to face.

Notes:

  • Post Inspired by Albert Einstein’s quote: “There are only two ways to live your life…

NINE MONTHS TODAY

On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

On a day like today, 9 months ago, I woke up to the news.

It came with a deep, gut-wrenching feeling!

49 people dead, many injured, in a gay club relatively near my house, on Latin night.

I could’ve been there.

Some friends could’ve been there too.

Time goes by so fast!!
