‘We Are The World’ …. “🌎 We Always have Been, We Always will Be 🌎 …. “!!

TURBULENT TIMES

~We Always have Been, We Always will Be~

I find myself so pulled by the negativity and awful events taking place in our world nowadays. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming that I can’t really breathe.

I can’t fathom or wrap my head around the level of inhumanity, greed, vileness, evil, violence, crime, injustice and so much more that inhabits this world.

Music helps me.

Here’s an example.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz …. “🧐🇵🇷 Get to know the Girl from the Bronx 🧐🇵🇷 … “!!

THE GIRL FROM THE BRONX

Who knew her name before the recent primaries? 

I don’t think many.

She was the upset of the evening.

I’m so very glad for her; mainly because she has Puerto Rican heritage and also because she brings new ideas which are very much needed in the current political climate.

I wish her the best and hope that the ‘monsters’ in Washington don’t have the ability to change or corrupt her.

Here’s to you, Alex!!

A former Bernie Sanders organizer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz of Queens, New York City won the democrats spot in the 2018 primary elections over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. A 28-year-old Latina woman, Ocasio-Cortez may also be one of the youngest elected to House, at age 28. Check out our extended interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Alexandria (born October 13, 1989) is an American democratic socialist, activist, educator, community organizer, and politician.

On June 26, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating the incumbent, Democratic Caucus Chair Joseph Crowley, in what has been described as the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm election season.

Ocasio-Cortéz is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and is also considered to be a left-wing populist.

After securing a stunning upset victory over long-term incumbent Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, June 26, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz has suddenly become a household name.

The 28-year-old, who’s all but guaranteed to be the next congresswoman for New York’s 14th District, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk about the surprise over her win and facing off against Drumpf.

Most significantly, she unpacked democratic socialism – an ideology that’s still unfamiliar, and perhaps frightening, to many – for a massive late-night TV audience.

“I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live,” she explained.

“What that means to me is health care as a human right, it means that every child no matter where you are born should have access to a college or trade-school education if they so choose it.

I think that no person should be homeless if we have public structures or public policy to allow for people to have homes and food and lead a dignified life in the United States.”

James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Guest …. “💕🇬🇧 Sir Paul McCartney …. So Very Special 🇬🇧💕 …. “!!

~Paul McCartney On Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is TV At Its Best~

I’m a huge Beatles fan!

I love James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Series.

Put them together and it’s an instant hit … at least in my mind and 21,677,891 view as of today.

It’s a bit long but for Beatles fans it’s not long enough!

Let’s take a trip down “Penny Lane”.

James Corden has set a very high standard with his Carpool Karaoke TV pieces. Only a million or two viewers watch him on CBS’ The Late Late Show when it’s broadcast, but YouTube and other social media sites extend Corden’s reach phenomenally.

A new one showcasing Sir Paul McCartney stands above all others.

In only a few days, it’s been viewed on YouTube more than 14 million+ times – and with very good reason. Not only does it have all the happiness and goofiness you expect Corden to deliver but this McCartney karaoke is also unexpectedly tender, touching and meaningful.

Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

~LAWYER AND HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST~

I’ve had the honor and the pleasure of meeting Melanie.

She was an invited speaker to a local LGBTQ Orlando event back in 2013.

Since then I have maintained contact with her through social media and followed her continued efforts for the rights of the LGBTQ community in her current location in California and all over the world.

Her right to exercise her 1st amendment rights lead to cancellation of a speaking engagement at a Navy Pride event.

Reason: she has tweeted comments that are critical of the Drumpf administration!

SURPRISE!! 

I’m trying to find a video that shows her interview in Joy Reid’s MSNBC show of June 23, 2018.

So far, no luck. I’m including a link to said interview.

Please, stop by and take a look … this is how ‘suppression’ begins.

We have already seen quite a few samples of such attempts.

I expect that this story will have another and, many several chapters!

~ABOUT MELANIE~

CURRENT

Executive Director, African Human Rights Coalition
Past Vice President, San Francisco Pride Board
Director, Peacemaker Museum World Tour
Mediator: Private Courts, Inc
Speaker: melnathan.com
Appointed by Town Council of San Anselmo to Board of Review, established in July 1978 by Town Council Ordinance #743. The board meets to hear and decide appeals from employee disciplinary actions, grievances and citizen complaints against employees.

“Her peers call her “a force of nature”

Melanie Nathan, a South Africa-born attorney, used her law school experience to assist African workers who were victims of apartheid in the 1980’s.

After immigrating to the U.S., she founded Private Courts, Inc., a mediation and human rights advocacy firm in Marin County, California.

She is also a prolific blogger and journalist who uses her writing “as a platform for my advocacy work …to get results such as helping LGBT asylum seekers.” It’s taken her to some controversial places: regular communication with the author of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, an investigation of “corrective rape” of lesbians in South Africa, which led to a Parliamentary Task team.

In addition to her blog, O-Blog-Dee-O-Blog-Da, she contributes to The Advocate, LGBTQ Nation and others. Nathan is co-producer of GAY U.S.A. the Movie, a documentary debunking the myths that impact gay rights.

“No American, least of all our own community, should sit back and allow prejudice and discrimination to continue. This is the final frontier of the civil rights movement in America,” Nathan argues.

“Each and every one of us has a duty to tell our stories, and not one ear should be spared.”

~Speaker at Navy Pride event cancelled for anti-Drumpf tweets~

Melanie and her attorney, Lisa Bloom, join Joy Reid on the MSNBC show to speak about the Navy rescinding her invitation to speak at said event.

Melanie was scheduled to speak at a Navy Pride event due to concerns about political statements made on Twitter.

“Although her comments and views are not inappropriate for a private citizen exercising their right ‘free speech’, they are inappropriate for our agency to endorse in a potential speaker for a command-sponsored event.”
