Tomi Lahren goes in on Beyonce and Jay Z

maxresdefault-30uu92chlyurrdtdwcolq8

Three days after what appears to be one of the most talked about Halftime Shows in Super Bowl history, Beyonce continues to get her name slandered for what some felt was an “attack” against law enforcement. The latest to express their disinterest in the “Formation” performance is online news host Tomi Lahren, who bashed Beyonce for choosing to celebrate “a group that used violence and intimidation to advance not racial equality but an overthrow of White domination.” “They didn’t believe in change through peace – they promoted violence instead. So Congratulations, Beyonce. You made your statement, you should be proud of yourself,” Tomi added sarcastically.

During the “Final Thoughts” clip Lahren also claims the “privileged” singer did it just “to get attention.” She then compared Beyonce to other prominent figures in Black culture who “just can’t let America heal” before pointing the finger at Jay Z. “Your husband was a drug dealer,” Tomi pointed out. “For 14 years he sold crack-cocaine – talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home.”

Ice_Cube_AmeriKKKa_s_Most_Wanted_hqxlus

As we reported earlier, today (5/16) is the 25th anniversary of the release of Ice Cube’s debut album,Amerikkka’s Most Wanted. To celebrate the milestone, Cube has made a series of videos detailing behind the scenes stories about the making of the landmark LP.

In part 1, the rapper born O’Shea Jackson reveals that he originally wanted Dr. Dre to produce his album, but it was blocked by record label politics. Ice Cube also details how his recording session with Chuck D and Big Daddy Kane for Public Enemy’s “Burn Hollywood Burn” led to his eventual pairing with PE’s production outfit, The Bomb Squad, to craft the album’s sonic landscape. Do you think Amerikkka’s Most Wanted would have been the classic it became, under the stewardship of Dr. Dre?

FBI releases documents proving Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun Fled to Argentina in a Submarine


Newly declassified FBI documents prove that the government knew Hitler was alive and well, and living in the Andes Mountains longafter World War II. Click here, on the FBI website to confirm the quiet release of this information.

On April 30 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker. His body was later discovered and identified by the Soviets before being rushed back to Russia. Is it really possible that the Soviets have been lying all this time, and that history has purposely been rewritten? No one thought so until the release of the FBI documents. It seems that it is possible that the most hated man in history escaped war-torn Germany and lived a bucolic and peaceful life in the beautiful foothills of the Andes Mountains.

THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY KNEW.

Recently, released FBI documents are beginning to show that not only were Hitler and Eva Braun’s suicide faked, the infamous pair might have had help from the Director of the US’ OSS office in Switzerland – and the man who would later become the first Director of Central Intelligence, Allen Dulles. In one FBI document from Los Angeles, it is revealed that the agency was well aware of a mysterious submarine making its way up the Argentinian coast dropping off high level Naziofficials. What is even more astonishing is the fact that the FBI knew he was in fact living in the foothills of the Andes.

WHO IS THE MYSTERIOUS INFORMANT?

In a Los Angeles letter to the Bureau in August of 1945, an unidentified informant agreed to exchange information for political asylum. What he told agents was stunning. The informant not only knew Hitler was in Argentina, he was one of the confirmed four men who had met the German submarine. Apparently, two submarines had landed on the Argentinian coast, and Hitler with Eva Braun was on board the second. The Argentinian government not only welcomed the former German dictator, but also aided in his hiding. The informant went on to not only give detailed directions to the villages that Hitler and his party had passed through, but also credible physical details concerning Hitler. While, for obvious reasons the informant is never named in the FBI papers, he was credible enough to be believed by some agents.

The FBI Tried to Hide Hitler’s Whereabouts:

Even with a detailed physical description and directions the FBI still did not follow up on these

new leads. Even with evidence placing the German sub U-530 on the Argentinian coast shortly before finally surrounding, and plenty of eye witness accounts of German official being dropped off, no one investigated.

EVEN MORE EVIDENCE IS FOUND

Along with the FBI documents detailing an eye- witness account of Hitler’s whereabouts in Argentina, more evidence is coming to light to help prove that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun did not die in that bunker. In 1945, the Naval Attaché in Buenos Aires informed Washington there was a high probability that Hitler and Eva Braun had just arrived in Argentina. This coincides with the sightings of the submarine U-530. Added proof comes in the form of newspaper articles detailing the construction of a Bavarian styled mansion in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Further proof comes in the form of architect Alejandro Bustillo who wrote about his design and construction of Hitler’s new home which was financed by earlier wealthy German immigrants.

IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE THAT HITLER ESCAPED:

Perhaps the most damming evidence that Hitler did survive the fall of Germany lies in Russia. With the Soviet occupation of Germany, Hitler’s supposed remains were quickly hidden and sent off to Russia, never to be seen again. That is until 2009, when an archeologist from Connecticut, Nicholas Bellatoni was allowed to perform DNA testing on one of the skull fragments recovered. What he discovered set off a reaction through the intelligence and scholarly communities. Not only did the DNA not match any recorded samples thought to be Hitler’s, they did not match Eva Braun’s familiar DNA either. So the question is, what did the Soviets discover in the bunker, and where is Hitler? Even former general and President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote to Washington. It was not only General Eisenhower who was concerned over Hitler’s compete disappearance, Stalin also expressed his concerns. In 1945, theStars and Stripes newspaper quoted then General Eisenhower as believing that the real possibility existed of Hitler living safely and comfortably in Argentina.

IS IT POSSIBLE?

With all of the new-found evidence coming to light, it is possible and even likely that not only did Hitler escape from Germany; he had the help of the international intelligence community. Released FBI documents prove that they were not only aware of Hitler’s presence in Argentina; they were also helping to cover it up. It would not be the first time the OSS helped a high-ranking Nazi official to escape punishment and capture. Look at the story of Adolf Eichmannwho was located in Argentina in the 1960′s. Did Hitler escape to Argentina? The answer is yes.

After 126 Years Of Anonymity, Infamous Serial Killer Jack The Ripper Has Finally Been Unmasked

2014-09-08_0916-690x330
 For 126 years, the identity behind London’s most vicious serial killer, Jack the Ripper, was a mystery. However, thanks to breakthrough DNA testing technology, we can finally add a name and a face to the madman.

From the Mirror:

The true identity of notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper can now be revealed thanks to a DNA breakthrough, it has been claimed.

 

Author and self confessed “armchair detective” Russell Edwards  claims to have solved perhaps the most notorious whodunit ever.

 

Mr Edwards claims Aaron Kosminski, a 23 year-old Polish immigrant who ended up dying in an asylum, was “definitely, categorically and absolutely” the man behind the grisly killing spree in 1888 in London’s East End.

The smoking gun was discovered when Edwards purchased a bloodstained shawl at an auction that belonged to one of Jack the Ripper’s victims.

The shawl ended up having some of Kosminski’s blood on it as well, and DNA analysis led to the major discovery.

Jack the Ripper was one of England’s most barbaric serial killers. He butchered five women within a three month period and was allegedly responsible for thirteen other murders, although the Ripper was never caught for his acts. His legend lived on through books and movies.

In addition, Edwards’ fascination with trying to track down the identity of Jack the Ripper came from watching Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s film In Hell. In the film, Depp plays a detective trying to crack the case of Jack the Ripper.

If Kosminksi is the man behind the mask, it’s an interesting find to say the least, and here’s why:

  • The only time Kosminksi allegedly showed a violent side was when he once picked up a chair and tried to hit someone with it.
  • Records of Kosminski made it clear that he wasn’t a danger to others.
  • He was documented as a “harmless imbecile.”

It appears now that was all an act, and Kosminski may have eluded the Sherlock Holmes of his time. However, with the technologies we now use to fight crime in the 21st century, his cunning and wit didn’t stand a chance.

We all know that Marconi received a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1909 for contribution to the development of wireless telegraphy. But the first public demonstration of radio waves for communication was made by Sir Jagdish Chandra Bose in 1895, two years prior to Marconi’s similar demonstration in England.

Sir Bose was posthumously credited (more than a century later) for his achievement. The fact remains that this discovery truly shaped the face of modern wireless communication.

 

15. Flush Toilets
