#7  Sep 30 - Obama Privately Warned Reporters Trump Would Destroy America In 8 Years

36 people viewing this

@news      By Contributor13      13 hours ago

Quote:

As weve previously noted around these parts, the biggest criticism of Barack Obama between the years of 2016 and 2020 related to his decision not to voice the opinions you know he absolutely had about Donald Trump. Indeed, it was not even until the end of 2018 that the 44th president uttered his successors name in public, despite the fact that most of the world was regularly referring to him with terms like certified moron, an idiot surrounded by clowns, Adolf Twitler, and, we a*sume, a malignant tumor on the colon of society.

While Obama did choose to start talking toward the end of 2020warning that August that Trump would tear our democracy down if given the chancethe remarks that he reportedly made in private were the ones people probably would have appreciated hearing the most, wherein he described the 45th president as a madman, a racist, s*xist pig, a corrupt motherfu*ker, and a fu*king lunatic. And apparently, he had other things to say about the guy too.

Bloomberg News reports that in his final days as president, Obama warned reporters, in an off-the-record conversation, that while America would be okay from four years of Trump, eight years would be a problem. I would be concerned about a sustained period in which some of these norms have broken down and started to corrode. (The remarks were revealed in a transcript that was released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2017 by reporter Jason Leopold.) Trump has, of course, been threatening to make another bid for office for some time now, which, if successful, would give him those eight years Obama warned against. While that would obviously be extremely bad for humanity, one might argue that the country is already quite worse for wear after just the first four, and that Obama was a little too optimistic about how Trumps first term would shake out.

Elsewhere in the conversation, Obama told reporters that he didnt believe Trump was keen on starting any wars, though he would probably be into bombing the heck out of terrorists. (In early January 2020, the Trump administration a*sassinated Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani; Trump would later complain that he didnt get enough credit for this, and that he should have because Soleimani was a much bigger terrorist than Osama bin Laden, whose 9/11 attacks he bizarrely attempted to downplay.) I think his basic viewhis formative view of foreign policy is shaped by his interactions with Malaysian developers and Saudi princes, and I think his view is, Im going to go around the world making deals and maybe suing people, Obama said during the chat. But its not, let me launch big wars that tie me up. And thats not what his base is looking [for] from him anyway. According to Bloomberg, Obama said his biggest fear about his successor was the politicization of the nations top law enforcement agency. I would be like white on rice on the Justice Department, Obama told reporters. Id be paying a lot of attention to that. And if there is even a hint of politically motivated investigations, prosecutions, et cetera, I think you guys have to really be on top of that. Trump, of course, spent much of his time in office demanding the DOJ investigate his political rivals, including Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton. As Bloomberg notes, Geoffrey Berman, the former US attorney for the Southern District of New York, recently accused Trumps Justice Department of meddling in prosecutions and pressuring his office to launch politically motivated probes into Trumps adversaries.

In addition to opining on Trump, Obama reportedly offered his thoughts on the GOP, saying that the Republican Party now is ideologically completely incoherent. You dont know what they stand for. So whats bound them together is opposition to me, opposition to a fantastical creature called the liberal who looks down on them and just feeds all that regional resentment. And there are a handful of issues, like guns, that trigger that sense of these folks arent like us and they dont like us and act like us. And theres obviously some racial elements that get put out into that stew.

Ginni Thomas swears she never once discussed her attempt to overturn the 2020 election with her husband, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas

And if you believe that, weve got a bridge to sell you. Per The New York Times:

During her interview, Ms. Thomas, who goes by Ginni, repeated her a*sertion that the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump, [Rep. Bennie] Thompson said, a belief she insisted upon in late 2020 as she pressured state legislators and the White House chief of staff to do more to try to invalidate the results. In a statement she read at the beginning of her testimony, Ms. Thomas denied having discussed her postelection activities with her husband.

In her statement, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, Ms. Thomas called it an ironclad rule that she and Justice Thomas never speak about cases pending before the Supreme Court. It is laughable for anyone who knows my husband to think I could influence his jurisprudencethe man is independent and stubborn, with strong character traits of independence and integrity, she added.

Kinda Amazing what technology can do we over seeing what kings looked like from over 3000 years ago he reminds me of a older Greek man



The show Roots and wings will unveil, on September 28, the physiognomy of the pharaoh reconstructed by scientists.

What did the illustrious pharaoh look like with 103 children, 200 concubines and eleven wives, including the famous Nefertari? Thanks to the careful reconstruction work of a team of scientists, the whole world can finally put a face to the legendary Ramesses II3300 years after his death.

As part of the bicentenary of the decipherment of hieroglyphs by Champollion, the program Roots and wings will reveal, on September 28 at 9:10 p.m. on France 3, the face of the pharaoh at the age of 45 and at the age of 91. First unseen images have been unveiled by France Info.

Led by Caroline Wilkinson, a forensic anthropologist from Liverpool John Moores University, and Sahar Saleem, a paleoradiologist at Cairo University, the team of experts worked on the mummy housed in the Museum of Civilizations in Cairo. Thanks to state-of-the-art technologies, they were able todecipher the skull of Ramses II to restore him to flesh, Specifies a press release from the channel. Sahar Saleem has already distinguished herself in the study of several other famous mummies, including those of Seti I or Tutankhamun.

#14  Sep 30 - Rappers Join Gavin Newsom for Signing of Californias Rap Lyrics Bill

17 people viewing this

@news      By nicoled985      8 hours ago

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has officially signed AB 2799, the landmark legislation that protects an artists right to freedom of expression.

The Democratic lawmaker passed the first-of-its-kind bill Friday afternoon, more than a month after it was unanimously approved by the state Senate. Known as the Decriminalizing Artistic Expression Act, the law restricts the use of rap lyrics as evidence in California court. New York failed to pass similar legislation earlier this year, which was seen as a major blow to artists First Amendment rights.

Artists of all kinds should be able to create without the fear of unfair and prejudicial prosecution, Newsom said. Californias culture and entertainment industry set trends around the world and its fitting that our state is taking a nation-leading role to protect creative expression and ensure that artists are not criminalized under biased policies.

The governor signed the bill during a ceremony conducted via Zoom. Participants included members of the Black Music Action Coalition and Songwriters of North America, as well as music industry leaders, like Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr., REFORM Alliances Jessica Jackson, and former Def Jam Records president Kevin Liles.

For too long, prosecutors in California have used rap lyrics as a convenient way to inject racial bias and confusion into the criminal justice process, said Dina LaPolt, entertainment attorney and co-founder of SONA. This legislation sets up important guardrails that will help courts hold prosecutors accountable and prevent them from criminalizing Black and Brown artistic expression. Thank you, Gov Newsom, for setting the standard. We hope Congress will pass similar legislation, as this is a nationwide problem.

Fridays signing ceremony also included a number of rappers, such as Meek Mill, k*ller Mike, Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Tyga, Too Short, and E-40.

A source told Complex that Too Short gave an impassioned speech on how his generation was targeted by prosecutors who used artists lyrics against them. He also expressed gratitude that the next generation of California artists will be afforded creative freedom without the fear of their art being used against them.

E-40 echoed Too Shorts comments, saying he was a proud Californian and was pleased to see his home state lead the way with new legislation that protects the creative freedom of artists.

Authored by a*semblyman Reginald Jones-Sawyer (D -Los Angeles), AB 2799 also applies to other forms of creative expression, including visual and performance art, films, literature, and poetry.

The law goes into effect in January 2023.

#15   Its hard to tell if Jordan took Barkleys joke personally, but what he said next changed

14 people viewing this

@sports      By jun tao      16 hours ago


Its no secret that even though they rivaled each other during their prime, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley were once thick as thieves. The two NBA Hall of Famers used to enjoy the company of each other even outside basketball, and like any other close pals, MJ and Chuck often roasted each other.


Charles doesnt know how it feels

It was undeniably an epic scene whenever the cameras caught Jordan and Barkley mocking one another. And fans were delighted with a lengthy back and forth courtesy of the pair when they appeared on Oprah in 2004.

As expected, neither of the NBA legends backed down from teasing each other on national TV. Jordan destroyed Barkley by poking fun at his terrible golfing skills. On the other hand, Chuck hit back by revealing how stingy a multi-millionaire His Airness is in person.


When Oprah brought up the topic of riding motorcycles, which happened to be one of MJs newfound hobbies at the time, Barkley got the better of his former NBA Finals foe once again.

Sir Charles quickly replied hell no when asked if he had ever ridden a motorcycle like Jordan. In his defense, Barkley pointed out that hell never do it as he just wouldnt risk his life the way MJ did every time he went for a ride.

I hate the fact that he [Jordan] rides motorcycles cause it scares me to death. Its not safe. Its just not safe, Barkley stressed.


The 1993 NBA MVP then emphasized that helmets dont guarantee safety, and Jordan was just too stubborn that his head was so hard he didnt even need one when riding.

His head is mighty, he dont need no helmet for his head, Barkley joked. Hes the most stubborn person you ever gonna meet in your life.

Everybody in the studio laughed, and even Jordan found Barkleys joke hilarious at one point. However, it didnt last long. In a matter of seconds, the smile on MJs face went away, and a deep voice with an evidently serious tone barged in and uttered, I disagree.

Its hard to tell if Jordan took Barkleys joke personally, but what he said next changed the vibe and the entire atmosphere for a few seconds. The six-time NBA champion apparently knew how to put Barkley in his place. And for MJ, theres no better way but to remind him a bit that he never won a championship.

When you think about it. When you ride a motorcycle, you have to be a defensive driver, Jordan began. You dont have time to talk on the phone, you dont have time to eat, you dont have time to do a lot of things most people do every single day, which is more dangerous than riding a motorcycle. You have to be really focused on seeing the traffic ahead. He doesnt know about this. Hes never ridden a motorcycle.

He never understand what it takes to be awinner.
Barkley was speechless, but he acknowledged that there was something behind that explanation. Jordan then put a grin on his face and playfully questioned, Did I say something wrong? Did I say something bad?

Things got serious

No matter how hard Jordan and Barkley ridiculed each other on the said Oprah appearance, it did not affect their friendship. Both were sport enough to suck all the insults up and carry on. However, nobody knew at the time that the fun would also come to an end and things would get serious.

During an interview in 2014, ten years after that Oprah episode, Barkley revealed that he and Jordan were no longer on speaking terms. According to Chuck, it started with something negative he said on national TV about the Charlotte Bobcats, the team Jordan owns.

I think that Michael was upset about something I said about the Bobcats that were obviously true, Barkley confessed. First of all, he is doing a much better job. A couple of years ago they had one of the worst records in NBA history and Michael didnt do a great job. I always loved him as a brother but I will do my job first and foremost. I am not going to get on tv and being dishonest to people. They know when you are being dishonest and disingenuous. I am going to do my job.

Its real

For those who are thinking maybe it was just a hoopla to add flavor to Barkleys TV shows, youre wrong. In fact, Jordan was even caught awkwardly snubbing Barkley at the NBA 75 ceremony.

#18  Sep 30 - Amazon hikes pay for warehouse and delivery workers

11 people viewing this

@news      By Sin      15 hours ago

KEY POINTS
-Amazon is bumping its average starting pay for warehouse and delivery workers to more than $19 an hour, up from $18 an hour, the company said Wednesday.
-Amazon is hiking wages as it prepares to enter the peak holiday shopping season, and it stares down increased organizing efforts among its front-line workforce.




Amazon is raising its hourly wages for its warehouse and delivery workers, the company announced Wednesday.

Beginning in October, Amazons average starting pay for front-line employees in the U.S. will be bumped up to more than $19 per hour from $18 per hour, the company said.

Warehouse and delivery workers will earn between $16 and $26 per hour depending on their position, Amazon added. Amazons minimum wage for employees in the U.S. remains $15 an hour.

Amazon is spending roughly $1 billion on the pay hikes over the next year as it looks to attract and retain employees in a historically tight labor market. Its also preparing to enter whats known as peak season, the especially busy shopping period tied to the holidays.

Tensions have been growing between Amazon and its front-line workforce, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Employees have called for wage increases, more paid time off and adjustments to productivity expectations.

Workers at several Amazon facilities have taken steps to organize, and earlier this year, workers at Amazons warehouse in Staten Island, New York, successfully voted to form the companys first U.S. union. Amazon faces another union election at a site near Albany, New York, next month.

The company said earlier this month it planned to raise pay and benefits for drivers employed by members of its contracted delivery network, which handles a growing share of its last-mile deliveries to customers doorsteps.

Alongside the pay increase, Amazon said its also expanding a payday advance program for its employees that allows them to access up to 70% of their eligible earned pay whenever they choose and without fees, not just on a schedule, such as a biweekly basis.
