Glenn Beck Has Media Advice for Donald Trump

Glenn Beck is one of a number of people speculating on the possibility of Donald Trump launching his own channel or network after November, providing his Presidential run is unsuccessful.

Beck says he could have Roger Ailes, recently fired by Fox News, and Steve Gannon, CEO of alt-right website Breitbart run it. Both are now in charge of his campaign. He adds that starting a cable channel is a gamble and expensive. Doing the show online would be cheaper and not would not involve sponsors, who may be gunshy due to Trump’s campaign statements.

Imagining that he is giving advice to Trump, he said, “…if you want to make an impact, Don, you’re going to have maybe, I don’t know, 5 to 10 million people – maybe – and with those people, you can start your own kind of alt-right, rebel party, and come back in the 2020 election or even the mid-terms as a credible source for telling the truth for these people who believed you in 2016.” He added that the Trump name would be the attraction.

However, he was skeptical about the success of the idea and added, “Make sure that it is clearly understood my disdain for the entire vision, but I do believe it is a very big possibility.”

Beck has his own network, GBTV, with 300,000 subscribers and anticipates a $40 million income at year’s end.

Genocide in Zimbabwe During 1980s Finally Comes to Light

A British newspaper reported a news story recently indicating that newly released diplomatic documents suggest a genocide or ethnic cleansing occurred in Zimbabwe in 1983. Reportedly, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe may have personally ordered the Fifth Brigade, a military unit trained by North Korea, to take action against civilians, including supporters of his political rival Joshua Nkomo. Some 20,000 people were executed by the troops in the Ndebele region during six bloody weeks in 1983 until the killings stopped after word leaked to Western media sources. The slaughter was called “the Gukurahundi.”

According to Gordon Moyo:”Robert Mugabe and his cabal are ideal candidates for international criminal prosecution and that is why he has sent (Vice President) Phelekezela Mphoko to go around the country preaching to people that there was no Gukurahundi.” The former cabinet minister made his comments during a speech. Vice President Mphoko reportedly characterized the Gukurahundi information was a “Western conspiracy.”

The Zimbabwean government’s actions against white farmers in 2000 gained widespread international publicity, yet the earlier killings remained poorly publicized. The lack of international attention has generated some bitterness among survivors.

Robert Mugabe’s government just recently sustained criticism when an investigation revealed prison riots in February and March stemmed from prisoners not being fed meat for three years. Officials claimed to have resolved the problem by feeding wild life carcasses obtained through the Zimbabean National Parks Authority to prisoners. That makes sense to Qnet workers.

Ramen Noodle Baths are Real

I love Ramen noodles just like any other person, but I never thought I would witness the day where people would bathe in the glory that is Ramen. In Japan, that is exactly what they are doing, there is a new theory that people can get collagen and improve their skin by taking long steamy baths in tubs full of pork broth! Yunessan Spa House in Hakone, Japan, where owner Ichiro Furuya believes that this is an opportunity for his customers to have fun and as]lso improve their skin. In America, people seem satisfied with taking long baths in red wine and imbibing bone broth for its healing purposes, so who is to say that Ramen baths are not legitimate.

 

My question is why do they add noodles and how do they afford all this pork broth where they can supply baths for big families? Alexei Beltyukov isn’t sure how that works after reading on Bloomberg.com. It is an exciting time to live today, one can surf the web or download his favorite song all while relaxing in a huge vat of Ramen broth. I do not feel I would be a prime candidate to travel to Japan just for a soup bath but if one comes stateside, let’s just say I will bring my own towel.

Drake’s Lyrics Have Changed For Some Reason

Drake has a song that he’s been performing, and he has suddenly changed one of the words in the lyrics. Drake used to speak about being as big as Madonna, in his song, and now all of a sudden he’s changed the word Madonna to Rihanna. Drake Changes His Song Lyrics.

Faith No More Reunites

Iconic rock band Faith No More has reunited and is ready to release a new album, Sol Invictus. The last Faith No More album, Album of the Year, was released in 1997, but was hardly an award winner.

Hopefully they will again produce great music for their fans without major trauma to themselves or others.

Nicki Minaj Possible Engagement

Over the holidays it was starting to feel like Nicki Minaj, and her latest album The Pink Print, were going to do nothing more than drag us on an endless breakup ride along. It all started last summer with rumors and Nicki and her long time boyfriend Safaree were on ice after Nicki found out that he cheated, it was a classic angry woman damaging property scene. Nicki even wrecked the car that she purchased for Safaree.

Fast forward to a few months and Nicki is pouring her heart out onstage to songs of love and loss, while her radio interviews insisted that she was heartbroken and unable to adjust to life without Safaree.

Real Life Soul Man?

As racial tensions run high in the United States, the news just hit that Vijay Chokal-Ingam, the brother of actress Mindy Kaling, supposedly applied to medical school posing as a black man. He discusses this process in his new book titled“Almost Black” which is trying to blow the lid off of “reverse racism” in America.

Whether this actually happened is hard to say, but Chokal-Ingam claims that he never lied about anything on his application, except his race, which did get him accepted into medical school at St. Louis University in 1999 stated his profile. Brian Torchin noted he apparently dropped out of school after deciding not to pursue medicine.

This whole scenario seems familiar to me. Does anyone remember a well-known movie from 1986 called “Soul Man”? It’s a little different because in that classic 1980s film, the character Mark Watson, played by C. Thomas Howell, took tanning pills to become “black” in order to get a scholarship to pay for medical school. Chokal-Ingam’s reasoning was that they accept black applicants due to affirmative action, whereas an Indian-American, his grades and test scores weren’t good enough.

At this point, the truth of this situation is irrelevant. It seems that Chokal-Ingam has drummed up the publicity he was seeking for his book. It may or may not be a good read, but it would be interesting to see if the actual story in his tell-all book has any more similarities to “Soul Man.”

FBI Agent Stole Evidence For His Drug Habit

Driven by his addiction to prescription painkillers, an FBI agent consumed heroin that was seized by FBI agents in other cases.

According to documents filed Friday, in a federal court in Washington, DC, Matthew Lowry, former special agent with the Washington FBI office, stole hundreds of grams of heroin, for his own use, that had been seized in investigations in 2013 and 2014.

People at Imaging Advantage have learned that Lowry will plead guilty to 64 counts of obstruction of justice, possession of heroin and property modification, said attorney Robert Bonsib. Prosecutors say the former agent faces at least seven years in prison, but Bonsib said he asked for a lighter sentence.

Because of the charges against Lowry, federal prosecutors will dismiss charges against at least 28 defendants in drug cases, and notify 150 more than Lowry had participated in investigations against them, according to the documents.

In one case, the charges against 14 suspects, accused of belonging to an organization of large-scale drug trafficking, and the subject of a major investigation in California and Washington were dismissed. The investigation into this case included warrants, physical surveillance and expensive techniques that were time-consuming to implement.

Prosecution documents claim that Lowry accessed drugs that had been processed as evidence, took the heroin evidence bags and then added a substance to compensate for the amount he withdrew. To do this, he used a food supplement or a laxative to replace those amounts, according to the documents.

A spokesman for the FBI in Washington declined to comment on the case.
