‘SHE WAS WARNED. SHE WAS GIVEN AN EXPLANATION. SHE PERSISTED’

He may have gotten what he wanted

Mitch McConnell got everything he wanted
“It’s a win: He appeased the GOP base by attacking a woman, and the odious Jeff Sessions is now our attorney general.”

On Tuesday, February 7, night Mitch McConnell stood up in the Senate and within the space of a minute or so managed to enrage Democrats, women, civil rights activists, the ghost of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, you name it.

By invoking the rarely used Rule 19 of the Senate to stop Sen. Elizabeth Warren from reading into the official record a letter penned by the late Coretta Scott King in 1986, in opposition to a judicial nomination of Jeff Sessions, McConnell created an immediate firestorm and gave the left a new martyr.

The general consensus of writers and political observers was that the normally careful McConnell had made a rare misstep. Not only did he silence a popular liberal firebrand, but in a way he also silenced the widow of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr.

With Warren facing surprisingly low approval ratings in Massachusetts, he may have just given her 2018 re-election and a possible presidential run in 2020 a high-profile boost.

He may have even coined a slogan for both campaigns:

“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

To start the day …. “Adele’s Birthday …. she turns 28 today …. “!!


HB-A

~~May 5, 2016~~ 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

There’s no denying it.

Adele is one of my favorite singers in the world.

I became aware of her as my oldest grand-daughter kept singing “Someone Like You”.

Since then, I’ve been one of the many fans who have followed her career.

With the release of her 3rd album, 25, Adele solidified her stature in the musical world.

She’s an awesome talent, a down to earth human being, a mother and a joy.

Here’s wishing her a happy birthday and many more.

Let’s review her career and successes with Wikipedia’s help.

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, MBE, (born 5 May 1988) is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year.

In 2007, she received the Brit Awards “Critics’ Choice” award and won the BBC Sound of 2008 poll.

Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to commercial and critical success. It is certified seven times platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the US. An appearance she made on Saturday Night Live in late 2008 boosted her career in the US. At the 51st Annual Grammy Awards in 2009, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

Adele released her second studio album, 21, in early 2011. The album was well received critically and surpassed the success of her debut, earning the singer numerous awards in 2012, including a record-tying six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year; two Brit Awards, including British Album of the Year, and three American Music Awards. The album has been certified 16 times platinum in the UK, and is the fourth best-selling album in the UK of all time. In the US it has held the top position longer than any album since 1985, and is certified Diamond.

The album has sold 31 million copies worldwide.

The success of 21 earned Adele numerous mentions in the Guinness Book of World Records.

She is the first woman in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have three simultaneous top 10 singles as a lead artist, and the first female artist to simultaneously have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. 21 is the longest-running number one album by a female solo artist in the history of the UK and US Album Charts.

In 2012, she released “Skyfall“, which she wrote and recorded for the James Bond film of the same name. The song won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.

After taking a three-year break, Adele released her third studio album, 25, in 2015. It became the year’s best-selling album and broke first week sales records in the UK and US. The lead single, “Hello“, became the first song in the US to sell over one million digital copies within a week of its release.

In 2011 and 2012, Billboard named Adele Artist of the Year. In 2012, she was listed at number five on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music.

IOTD …. “Image of the day”, #19!!


~~September 20, 2014~~ 

Michelle, a dear blogger friend …. mchelsmusings.

You can find her here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

IOTD is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

So far a lot of people l have enjoyed this when I’ve done it on

Kendall Jones …. do you know who she is?

Texas Tech cheerleader, 19, loves shooting big game in Africa — and makes no apologies for it

~Kendall Jones~

19-year-old Texan cheerleader provoking worldwide fury over hunting pictures on her Facebook page

The smiling blonde cheerleader happily posing in the photograph looks for all the world like an ordinary Texan student, but with one crucial difference: she’s posing with a recently shot dead lion.

The Texas cheerleader has infuriated many in the online community after posting photos that show her smiling while standing over wildlife she shot in Africa. 

Kendall Jones, 19, makes no apologies for her hunting hobby, and talks earnestly on her Facebook page about hunting the Big 5 game animals in Africa, which include the lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and white/black rhinoceros.

K2

“In 2008, (age 13) I took my second trip to Africa to start my Big 5 experience,” she writes on Facebook. “The first animal I ever shot was a White Rhino with a .416 Remington!! On this trip I also took some plains game, such as impala, kudu and mountain reedbuck home.”

The Texas Tech cheerleader also wrote on Facebook that she had inked a development deal in January to create a new series based on her favorite sport. 

K4K5

Ms Jones, who claims she is “doing her part in conservation to make a difference”, is now the subject of at least two petitions, one of which has 100,000 signatures and calls for her page to be removed from Facebook.

The petition on AVAAZ.org asks people to sign “for the sake of all animals, especially the animals in the African region … where hunters are going for fun just to kill an animal”.

Another petition, on the website change.org calls for Kendall Jones to be denied access to African states.

K3

The photographs have provoked a similar response to one posted by US TV presenter Melissa Bachman who sparked controversy by posting a picture of herself next to a lion she’d just “stalked and killed” in South Africa.

Kendall Jones’ critics have variously described her as “sick” and “depraved” for killing the animals and boasting about it online. However, not everyone is offended. Her Facebook page has over 17,000 “likes” and frequently draws positive comments.

Ms. Jones, who made her first kill, a White Rhino, on her second trip to Africa when she was 13, has also claimed that not all of the animals featured in the pictures are actually dead. Some have been tranquilized for educational use, she claims.

K6

Her Facebook page states that she “is looking to host a TV show in January 2015,” and repeatedly claims that her actions are best for the reserves and help control population numbers.

“Hunters are the biggest conservationists there are,” she told the New York Daily News, adding “we want animal populations to grow and thrive!”

She wrote on Facebook that: “Funds from a hunt like this goes partially to the government for permits but also to the farm owner as an incentive to keep and raise lions on their property.”

K7

One particular image of Jones, posing with an endangered rhinoceros, incensed animal rights activists.

Jones defended the image saying that it showed a live animal: “The vet drew blood, took DNA samples, took body and head measurements, treated a leg injury and administered antibiotics.”

“I felt very lucky to be part of such a great program and procedure that helps the White Rhino population through conservation,” she wrote.

NABorder

Despite her protestations Jones’ Facebook page is full of negative comments. “I’d love to drop kick you into a lions’ den, see how you do without your gun,” one commenter writes. Another Facebook user writes: “No matter how you look at it, seeing people smiling over the dead body of such a majestic animal is just sad.”

Another is less diplomatic: “You are absolute scum. I hope a gorgeous African animal takes its own revenge on you one day for all the beautiful souls you have shot.”

~Cheerleader Kendall Jones Dead African Animal Selfies~

~Published on July 3, 2014~

19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader Kendall Jones has been posting Facebook pictures of herself posing beside dead animals such as lions, leopards, zebras and rhinos, which she hunts in Africa.

The images have sparked outrage on the internet after going viral while Jones has defended herself by claiming that she is helping the conservation of animals by posting the photos.

We look at Jones’s flawed attempt to justify her actions, in this Lip News clip with Lissette Padilla and Gabriel Mizrahi.

Hunting

We ALL are connected through NATURE!! 

NoAbuse

We ALL are ONE!! 

Animals

As I see it, and I’m perfectly aware that this is an opinion, animals are sentient beings, they were here on Earth before humans arrived. They shouldn’t be persecuted, used for profit or entertainment, exhibited or hunted.

Anyone can give me many reasons to justify hunting of any kind. 

I can’t accept any of those reasons. Actions like these are beyond my comprehension, they are beyond me. 

I pity the person who has this capacity in their soul. They are taking a life and a majestic one at that.

Favorite sport? Where is the sport in this? The animal has all the odds and everything stacked against him. The hunters are going for fun just to kill an animal.

Where is the sport in this?
