“Rush Limbaugh and the Long, Sordid History of Pitting Whites Against Blacks in America”

Put down your cup of coffee, I’ve got something that’s really going to shock you. This week Rush Limbaugh race-baited. He sought to inflame white fear and hatred of non-whites. Unbelievable, I know. But it’s true. Unfortunately for Rush, the story he presented to his listeners turned out not to be (he fell for a satirical, Onion-style piece posted on a blog, and had to admit on the air that he’d been duped). This kind of race-baiting — whether relying on blatant falsehoods, deceptively presented facts or gross misinterpretations of reality — is something Limbaugh has done countless times throughout his career. More broadly, it is a tactic that the white economic elite, starting with the colonial-era slaveocracy, has employed going back to the time before we had even become a country.

TINA TURNER IS MARRIED 2


HUFFINGTON POST

When Tina Turner tied the knot with longtime partner Erwin Bach earlier this month, her guest list included Oprah Winfrey and Bryan Adams.

But there was one guest the singer didn’t expect to see at her wedding — a remote-controlled drone.

German publication Der Spiegel reported Thursday that Turner and Bach went to great lengths to keep prying eyes from invading their nuptials, even hanging red cloth in the garden at Turner’s estate on Lake Zurich to block the wedding from view. However, freelance photographer Claudio Meier, who knew a snapshot of the celebration would fetch a pretty penny, decided to fly a remote-controlled drone over the wedding to get a picture.

Meier’s plan was derailed though — Swiss police ordered the photographer to land the aircraft and confiscated his memory card.

Swiss tabloid photographer Toto Marti did manage to snap a photo of the event from within a small airplane, but in that case he was actually in the plane.

The newlyweds shared their wedding photos with HELLO! soon after the event. Turner donned a nontraditional black and green gown by Georgio Armani, and requested that all of her female guests wear white, while male guests were asked to wear black.

Turner and Bach have been together for 27 years. Of her marriage, Turner told HELLO!, “It’s a wonderful place to be.”  [FULL QUOTE]

“Armstrong admits doping: “I’m a flawed character”Disgraced former cycling champion comes clean to Oprah Winfrey about using performance-enhancing drugs to win” 3


CBS NEWS -OWN

CHICAGO:  He did it. He finally admitted it. Lance Armstrong doped.

He was light on the details and didn’t name names. He mused that he might not have been caught if not for his comeback in 2009. And he was certain his “fate was sealed” when longtime friend, training partner and trusted lieutenant George Hincapie, who was along for the ride on all seven of Armstrong’s Tour de France wins from 1999-2005, was forced to give him up to anti-doping authorities.

But right from the start and more than two dozen times during the first of a two-part interview Thursday night with Oprah Winfrey on her OWN network, the disgraced former cycling champion acknowledged what he had lied about repeatedly for years, and what had been one of the worst-kept secrets for the better part of a week: He was the ringleader of an elaborate doping scheme on a U.S. Postal Service team that swept him to the top of the podium at the Tour de France time after time.  FULL ARTICLE
