JAMAL KHASHOGGI

~I SIMPLY HAVE NO WORDS~

This incident seems to have shaken the foundation of the world. It has also shaken the hearts of many.

Except for Saudi Arabia and the illegitimate leader of America.

So noted!

He was a prominent journalist who has covered major stories, including the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the rise of Osama Bin Laden, for various Saudi news organizations.

For decades, Mr. Khashoggi had been close to the Saudi royal family and he also served as an adviser to the government.

But he fell out of favor and went into self-imposed exile in the US last year. From there, he has written a monthly column in the Washington Post in which he has criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In his first column for the newspaper, Mr Khashoggi said that he feared being arrested in an apparent crackdown on dissent overseen by the prince since he became first in line to succeed his father King Salman earlier that year.

“The people being arrested are not even being dissidents, they just have an independent mind,” he told the BBC’s Newshour program just three days before he disappeared.

Saudi

He first visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 28 September to obtain a document certifying that he had divorced his ex-wife, so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée.

But he was told he would have to return and arranged to come back on the 2 October.

“He did not mind walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul because he did not believe that something bad could happen on Turkish soil,”

his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, wrote in the Washington Post.

“Jamal was hardly concerned ahead of his second visit.”

Barbra Streisand …. “🎼🎼 Directs Her First Music Video for ‘Don’t Lie to Me’ 🎼🎼 …. “!!

 “Don’t Lie to Me”

Barbra is Watching Drumpf

One of my of all time, favorite music icons is using her platform to express her feelings about the reality which the ‘squatter in the White House’ has with the truth and with facts.

One awesome voice speaking for many of us!!

Barbra Streisand is always watching Drumpf 

When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:

“All President Trump cares about is winning.

He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.

But what do we all lose as he wins?”

Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.

Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”

Barb2

“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”

GoldSwirl

She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.

“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.

“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.

They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”

Till It Happens to You

In view of the current emotional times that women are going through in this very moment,  I would like to share these videos about the very topic that is tearing apart this nation.

Lady Gaga and Diane Warren wrote this song together.

 It’s timeless!

“If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there is science and scientific proof, it’s biology, that people change.

The brain changes. And literally what it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box, and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain,” Gaga said emphatically.

“It also does a lot of other things, it can cause body pains, baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to even remember or think about what happened to you,” she continued.

DEAR PROFESSOR FORD

At this point, I have no words.

This has been on my mind since one week ago, when Dr. Ford identified herself as the victim of alleged sexual assault by the nominee to the vacant seat on the Supreme Court of the United States.

I can barely being to imagine how she’s feeling in view of the event that happened 36 years ago, her identifying herself and the subsequent situation she has endured since her identity became known.

I don’t want to write about the actions of the old curmudgeons, white men who sit on the Judiciary Committee, two of whom where in this same place in history during the Anita Hill hearings. I only want to mention that we, the people, are not blind to the reasons for your actions.

Your legacy, if any, will forever be tainted and if that man sits on SCOTUS, his tenure will be forever tainted. The ‘highest court in the land’ will have two members who has been accused of sexual misconduct.

“Dear Professor Ford” Video Shows Activists and Celebrities Backing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

In a video circulating Twitter shared with the hashtag #WeBelieveYou, dozens of women showed support for Palo Alto professor Christine Blasey Ford.

The video, titled #DearProfessorFord, shows celebrities, attorneys, and activists lauding Ford for speaking up about her allegation against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh, who has categorically denied the allegation, has been called on by the Senate Judiciary Committee to appear at a hearing on Monday, as has Ford.

“Dear Professor Ford,” the women in the video say, “we know how difficult it is to stand up to powerful people.

We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence.

As members of the Senate determine whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should serve as a Supreme Court Justice, this context is critical.”

The different figures in the video then refer to Ford’s sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, saying that “the behavior you described was wrong and runs directly counter to upholding the law and promoting justice.”

Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk
Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing

Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown.
The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.”

The figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed.

The desks are real school desks.  “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. 

Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011.

REVISED DEATH TOLL IN PUERTO RICO

REMEMBER WHEN?

We ALL knew!

The official count is 16, then 64, then 4,645!

Now, after a study done by professionals, the official number is 2,975.

Who can anyone be sure?

Shame on Drumpf … it won’t matter because he doesn’t care!!
She’s the only person who has been vocal about the situation in Puerto Rico since Hurricanes Irma and María battered Puerto Rico!!

Let this recorded interview explain itself.

Plenty others have remained quiet.

For that, she has my utmost respect!

San Juan mayor says the Drumpf administration killed thousands through neglect during Hurricane María

Washington (CNN)

The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, said Wednesday, August 29, that bureaucracy and inefficiency across local and federal government entities are to blame for the deaths of nearly 3,000 on the island in the wake of Hurricane María, which came to light as part of a newly released study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government.
In particular, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blamed Drumpf, federal officials and Puerto Rican officials for not providing more assistance in what the Puerto Rican government now acknowledges was a storm deadlier than Hurricane Katrina.

CYC3

“You know, everybody is responsible because there were people in power that had the opportunity to request more aid, to request more aid when it was reasonable, to request more aid when it was needed, to tell the truth and they didn’t,”

Yulín Cruz told CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota.

“It’s 2,975 people and they’re still calling it an estimate – 2,975 people that will never see the light of day and many of them died because of what was done by the administration and that was silently approved by most of the political class in Puerto Rico.”
