• JUST IN: Trump asking Congress, not Mexico, to pay for border wall - CNN

    06/Jan/2017 // 516 Viewers


    Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump's transition team has signaled to congressional Republican leaders that his preference is to fund the border wall through the appropriations process as soon as April, according to House Republican officials.
    The move would break a key campaign promise when Trump repeatedly said he would force Mexico to pay for the construction of the wall along the border, though in October, Trump suggested for the first time that Mexico would reimburse the US for the cost of the wall.
    Trump defended that proposal Friday morning in a tweet, saying the move to use congressional appropriations was because of speed.
    "The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!" Trump tweeted Friday.
    New York Rep. Chris Collins said Friday that American taxpayers would front the cost for the wall but that he was confident Trump could negotiate getting the money back from Mexico.
    "When you understand that Mexico's economy is dependent upon US consumers, Donald Trump has all the cards he needs to play," Collins, congressional liaison for the Trump transition team, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day." "On the trade negotiation side, I don't think it's that difficult for Donald Trump to convince Mexico that it's in their best interest to reimburse us for building the wall."
    The Trump team argues it will have the authority through a Bush-era 2006 law to build the wall, lawmakers say, but it lacks the money to do so. Transition officials have told House GOP leaders in private meetings they'd like to pay for the wall in the funding bill, a senior House GOP source said.

    "It was not done in the Obama administration, so by funding the authorization that's already happened a decade ago, we could start the process of meeting Mr. Trump's campaign pledge to secure the border," Indiana Republican Rep. Luke Messer said on Thursday.
    Messer admitted it's "big dollars, but it's a question of priorities." He pointed to a border security bill that Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul proposed last year that cost roughly $10 billion.
    "Democrats may well find themselves in the position to shut down all of government to stop the buildout of a wall, or of a barrier, or of a fence," Messer said.
    The Associated Press and Politico first reported elements of the talks earlier Thursday.
    If Mexico refuses to pay for the wall, the GOP could add billions of dollars into the spending bill that needs to pass by April 28 to keep the government open. But doing so would force a showdown with Senate Democrats and potentially threaten a government shutdown.
    No decisions have been made, GOP sources said.
    Republicans point out that then-Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Chuck Schumer and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton voted for the 2006 bill and argued that since Democrats backed that bill, they should support efforts to fund the current effort.
    The thinking behind the strategy is that it is harder for Democrats to filibuster spending bills because of the high stakes involved if they fail to pass in time.

    Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the No. 3 Republican in the House leadership, declined to say Thursday if Congress would pay for the wall.
    "We want President Trump to have all the tools he needs to build the wall," Scalise said. "We're in talks with him on the details of it as they're still putting together their team. We still got a few months before there's another funding bill that's going to move. We're going to work with him to make sure we can get it done. We want to build a wall. He wants to build a wall."

  • Breaking: U.S. added 156,000 jobs in December; unemployment rate ticked up to 4.7 percent

    06/Jan/2017 // 272 Viewers


    The U.S. economy added 156,000 new jobs in December, according to government data issued Friday. The final issued by the Labor Department during President Obama’s administration showed the unemployment rate at 4.7 percent, slightly up from 4.6 percent the previous month.
    Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had expected American companies to add 180,000 jobs in the month.
    December marks the 75th straight month of job growth – the most extended streak the country has seen since 1939.
    The number of new jobs added each month has gradually slowed as the economy recovers from the depths of the recession, from average monthly gains of 251,000 in 2014 to 229,000 in 2015 and 180,000 in the first 11 months of 2016. However, that’s still far above the level of new jobs needed to keep up with population growth, economists say.
    “We’d expect the rate of job growth to slow as the recovery matures and we get back to where unemployment is likely to remain longer term,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at job search site Indeed.
    President-elect Donald Trump inherits an economy that is relatively healthy, though economists caution that some industries and regions of the country continue to lag behind in the recovery. Trump has pledged to boost the U.S. economy by reducing regulations and corporate taxes, boosting infrastructure spending, and reviving America’s manufacturing sector.
    Signs of a strengthening economy persuaded the U.S. Federal Reserve to vote unanimously in December to raise their benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point, the first such increase in a year.
    In its December meeting, Fed officials did not mention Trump by name, but they clearly discussed the potential economic impact of his impending presidency. Minutes of the meeting released in early January cited Fed officials as saying that they may need to lift rates faster in the future if changes in government spending cause inflation to rise by more than expected, likely referring to Trump's promise to boost infrastructure spending.
    "We're operating under a cloud of uncertainty at the moment, and we have to wait and see what changes occur and factor those into our decision-making as we gain more clarity," Fed Chair Janet Yellen said in a news conference.

  • Breaking News! Gunman opens fire at South Florida Airport, Killing 'Multiple People'

    06/Jan/2017 // 668 Viewers


    A shooter opened fire Friday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, leaving "multiple people dead" and injuring several others, the Broward County sheriff said, NBC news is reporting
    The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport, located about 25 miles north of Miami, tweeted the incident occurred at a baggage claim inside Terminal 2.
    In the aftermath of the chaos, cameras outside the airport showed firefighters and other emergency personnel, plus large groups of passengers, standing on a tarmac. The Federal Aviation Administration did not immediately order an official ground stop at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, but officials were not letting anyone inside.
    Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer tweeted that he was at the airport at the time of the shooting and "everyone is running." He later tweeted that "all seems calm."
    The airport says it receives over 73,000 travelers each day.
    A law enforcement expert said authorities will try to determine who the suspect is and whether there are other plots afoot.
    "You're trying to understand, is this a one-off guy? Regardless of motive, is he alone, or is there something else?" law enforcement expert Jim Cavanaugh told MSNBC. "We hate to think that way, but that's the requirement for police commanders — to think that way."
    Fatal shootings at airports, where security is tight, are unusual. In November 2016, a disgruntled former employee opened fire at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, killing a Southwest Airlines worker.

  • ‘There’s nothing impossible for Nigerians’ - US Deputy Consul-General

    06/Jul/2016 // 3426 Viewers




    For 27 years, Mrs. Dehab Ghebreab served in the Foreign Service of the United States (U.S.). She spent 15 years in Africa, serving as Public Affairs Officer of the U.S. Consulates in Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia and Zimbabwe. In this interview with WALE AJETUNMOBI, she relives her experience and the values she is taking away from the continent.

    You have served in the United States’ Foreign Service for 27 years. Would you say you are satisfied with your experience?

    Yes, I do feel that way. This is because we have an assessment and evaluation process in place. We get promoted based on our performance and I have benefited from this process. That is an indication that I served well and I have been rewarded for the work that I’ve done.

    During this period, how many years did you work in Africa?

    I worked in Africa for 15 years, but in different countries. I did two assignments in Nigeria. I served in Zambia, Ghana, Liberia and a short assignment in Zimbabwe. But, in the course of my job, I have travelled to almost every part of Africa.

    Why did you choose Africa as a destination for your diplomatic assignment?

    I would say that I am an Africanist and my focus has been Africa. Most of the diplomats have opportunities to choose different regions to serve. They prefer to choose two regions and that is part of recommendations that we get as we passed through professional development. The aim of this is to serve and have expertise of the two regions. My preference has been focused on Africa and it has worked really well for me.

    How would you describe the relationship between the U.S. and the African countries you have served?

    Obviously, the U.S. relationship with Africa is very important. The U.S. government has a very strong relationship with Nigeria. We have strong relationship with Ghana as well. I will say the same goes for Zambia and Liberia. I have been fortunate to work in African countries, that we have good relationship with.

    Do you think the objectives of the U.S. inter-faith programme in Africa are being achieved?

    I think so. In the United States, we have freedom of religion. The religious adherents come together for inter-faith dialogue to better understand one another and work together in communities. Our goal is to see the same initiative developed in other countries as well. With their different faiths, leaders can come together and build a relationship and understanding, so that there will not be conflict between the various communities. In Nigeria, we have seen religious conflict and it is important we advocate that freedom of faith should be respected. Religious leaders should come together to create peace and advocate for unity.

    With your experience, do you believe these programmes are worth sustaining?

    Yes. The programmes have been going on for years. There is no reason not to believe that the exchange programmes will continue. The most recent initiative of President Barack Obama is the Mandela Washington Fellowship Programme. That initiative will continue as far as we know. But, after President Obama leaves office, we will find out in what form it will continue with the State Department.

    What have been your challenges working in Nigeria?

    For me, the challenges have been minimal, because I have bad and great experience in Nigeria. I have been here for seven years. I feel privileged to have participated in many activities, including the general elections during which I worked with young people. The challenges are connected with the traffic congestion… going to different places and spending hours on the road. It is difficult managing my time as well. As much as Public Diplomacy means going out and cultivateing relationships, you need to go out and spend a lot of time on the road. When you go for events, most don’t start on time. Sometimes, you have to wait for one or two hours for the event to start. Those were the challenges that I faced.

    Do you have high and low moments in doing your job in Nigeria?

    I can talk about a lot of high moments. But, there is no particular low moment. I think there were times when one heard about loss of lives, because of conflict that goes on. That affects the way you feel about the country in which you are working. My hope is that the federal, state and local governments and Nigerians in general would come together and address the source of the conflict. They should come up with a solution that will include the input of the stakeholders, so that it would be sustainable. The U.S. Consulate has worked with Nigerian kids a lot through various projects. We have Dawn in the Creeks project that  we supported in the Niger Delta. There’s a lot of investment in that project. But, to see what is happening now in Niger Delta; it is really discomforting. So, there has to be lasting solution to the problems that have been in existence for many years.

    How would you describe your experience working with Nigerian journalists?

    I guess it is great. It is wonderful working with the Nigerian media. Without your support, we would not have been able to convey our messages; I mean everything the U.S. Mission is doing to support Nigeria. Compared to my first visit to Nigeria, I can say the Nigerian media has developed a lot and it is vibrant. There are some capacity-building issues that we see, but during the last general elections, Nigerian journalists demonstrated that they can be objective and really inform the public as to what is going on in the country. I believe journalists contributed to the peaceful outcome of the election. The bar of professionalism has been raised. The U.S. Consulate facilitated about 10 capacity training programmes since I have been here. We will continue to do that. We have been sending journalists to the U.S. for training programmes, because we believe the press plays a central role in terms of strengthening democratic principles. Also, they are educating the public on their role to hold the government accountable. The news media plays central role and we will look at capacity building in the future.

    What were your impressions about Nigeria before you came here and what are the impressions you are leaving with?

    When I came to Lagos in 2012, I knew it would be my last assignment in Foreign Service. I came with the thought that it would be a tough and difficult assignment. I said it’s okay and I won’t miss my work because I would be retiring after this assignment. But, it didn’t turn out to be that way. I really had a great time here. We have wonderful initiative that we supported. With the Mandela Washington Fellowship programme in the last three years; it gave us an opportunity to really travel to different locations to get to know this country. Nigeria has tremendous potential that we have seen, especially the young people. Without the government’s handouts, they really take steps to be creative, using technology to impact the communities and to create jobs in many cases. So, all of that potential that we have seen through various programmes; when they come back, they are touching other people’s lives. They are building networks; so that has to contribute to the development of the country and at some point, we are going to see dramatic change in Nigeria. I believe so. We will focus on the backbone of this country, which is the youth. I believe we will see changes.

    What are the lessons you are taking away from Nigeria?

    What I see in Nigeria are very creative and industrious people, who are struggling and finding their ways. We have people engaging in five or six different things simultaneously; going to school, working part-time, having non-governmental organisations to impact on the communities and advancing in their professional careers. Some enrol in degree programmes and at the same time pursuing two Master’s degrees. I have never seen anything like that before I came here. I will use this can-do-spirit of Nigerians to inspire young people in the rest of Africa by saying, ‘you can do it’. For me, I didn’t know it was possible to do all these things at the same time. But, I’m now convinced it is possible.

    What legacies are you leaving behind in the U.S. Consulate Public Affairs office?

    We have a very robust office here and it has been very productive. The work that we have done has been supported by the U.S. Mission and the State Department, but, more importantly, by the Nigerian people. The way Nigerians have responded, our activities would not have been successful without the support we got from the Nigerian people. These are things I will remember and I hope we will continue to have a strong office to continue with all the work we have done.

    What is your plan after retirement?

    There is so much going on my mind. I can’t focus on any particular thing until September. But I’m thinking that doing values that I picked up from here will be fine. That is, I want to be an author; I want to write a book. A lot of people, who have stories to tell here, write books. And that is what I want to do.

    What do you want to remember about Nigeria and Africa?

    There is so much. It can’t be one or two things. There are lots of things. But, my being here and witnessing the 2015 general elections to see how people peacefully decided they wanted to change the government in a very peaceful manner. They made their voices heard and brought about change. That’s remarkable. This kind of cooperation should happen regularly in Africa. We have seen that in Ghana, where there has been peaceful transition three or four times. We saw that happened in 2015 in Nigeria. This is historic. I will continue to remember those times. - The

  • Trump praises Saddam Hussein, says US shouldn't have killed him

    06/Jul/2016 // 806 Viewers


    PARIS, JULY 6, 2016: (DGW) DONALD TRUMP, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate  has showered encomium on the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The United States 'shouldn't have destabilized' Iraq, now a hotbed for the Islamic State, Trump said.

    He praised Saddam  for killing off “terrorists,” which earned him a swift rebuke from White House. Iraq he says has been destabilized and taken over by IS after   13 years of  the US-led invasion.

    “He was a bad guy — really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good,” Trump told supporters.
    “They didn’t read them the rights. They didn’t talk. They were terrorists. It was over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism,” the Republican firebrand added, referring to the prestigious US university.
    Shortly after the remarks, Clinton’s campaign pounced on Trump’s apparent support of a strongman, who was hanged in Iraq in 2006 for ordering the sectarian killings of nearly 150 Shiites two decades earlier.

    “Tonight, Trump yet again lauded Saddam Hussein as a great killer of terrorists, noting with approval that he never bothered to read anyone their rights. In reality, Hussein’s regime was a sponsor of terrorism,” Clinton senior policy advisor Jake Sullivan said in a statement.

    “Trump’s cavalier compliments for brutal dictators, and the twisted lessons he seems to have learned from their history, again demonstrate how dangerous he would be as Commander-in-Chief and how unworthy he is of the office he seeks.”

    Paul Ryan, a Republican Speaker in the House of Representatives, however,   criticized Donald Trump for his comments.

    Saddam “was one of the 20th century’s most evil people. He was up there, and he committed mass genocide against his own people using chemical weapons. Saddam Hussein was a bad guy,” Ryan said

    Recall last year, Trump said the world would be “100 percent” better off if Saddam and slain Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi were still in power.

    “I mean, look at Libya. Look at Iraq. Iraq used to be no terrorists. He (Saddam) would kill the terrorists immediately, which is like now it’s the Harvard of terrorism,” Trump said at the time.

    “If you look at Iraq from years ago, I’m not saying he was a nice guy, he was a horrible guy, but it was a lot better than it is right now.”

  • Breaking: Video: Celebration galore as Clinton wins Puerto Rico's Democratic presidential primary!

    06/Jun/2016 // 1137 Viewers

     SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Hillary Clinton overwhelmed Bernie Sanders in Puerto Rico's Democratic presidential primary on Sunday, putting her within striking distance of capturing her party's nomination.

    After a blowout victory Saturday in the U.S. Virgin Islands and a decisive win in the U.S. territory, Clinton is now less than 30 delegates short of the 2,383 needed to win the nomination, according to an Associated Press count.

    "We just won Puerto Rico! ¡Gracias a la Isla del Encanto por esta victoria!" tweeted Clinton, thanking the Island of Enchantment, as Puerto Rico is known, for her victory. As the race was called, Clinton was on stage in Sacramento, rallying voters in California.

    The results were slow to arrive on Sunday, as officials counted ballots by hand and focused first on releasing results tied to the island's local primary elections, said Kenneth McClintock, Puerto Rico's former Democratic National Committeeman.

    As the results from Puerto Rico trickled in, Clinton maintained a healthy lead over Sanders.

    While Puerto Rican residents cannot vote in the general election, the island's politics could reverberate into the fall campaign. Tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans have left the island to escape a dismal economy, with many resettling in the key electoral battleground of Florida.

    Though Clinton did not spend much time campaigning in Puerto Rico, the victory is fraught with symbolism for her campaign. Eight years ago, with the presidential nomination slipping from her grasp, she rolled through the streets of San Juan on the back of a flat-bed truck, wooing voters to a soundtrack of blasting Latin music.

    She beat then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama with nearly 68 percent of the vote.

    "I'm for Hillary, girl," said 83-year-old Candida Dones on Sunday as she cast her ballot. "I can't wait for a female president. She's one of us. She wears the pants. If we don't look out for our own interests, who will?"

    Both Clinton and Sanders spent Sunday in California, the biggest prize among the six states voting on Tuesday. Sanders shook hands and stopped for photos during a stroll of more than an hour along the shops, restaurants and amusement park rides of the Santa Monica Pier.

    That included a stop at a charity "Pedal on the Pier" fundraiser, telling people riding on stationary bikes that the U.S. should have "an economy that works for all people, not just the one percent."

    Like Clinton, Sanders made little mention of the outcome in Puerto Rico's primary. He said during an evening rally in San Diego that Democratic leaders should take notice that the "energy and grassroots activism" that will be crucial to the party in the fall "is with us, not Hillary Clinton."

    He pointed to polls showing him faring better than Clinton in head-to-head matchups with Trump and his strength among Democratic voters under the age of 45.

    "If the Democratic leadership wants a campaign that will not only retain the White House but regain the Senate and win governors' chairs all across this country, we are that campaign," he said.

    While those watching the results in Puerto Rico focused on their impact on the race for the Democratic nomination, the focus of many voters on the island was its ongoing economic crisis.

    Both Sanders and Clinton had pledged to help as the island's government tries to restructure $70 billion worth of public debt the governor has said is unpayable.

    "This is one of the most important political moments for Puerto Rico," said Emanuel Rosado, a 29-year-old Clinton supporter. "I'm taking action as a result of the economic crisis."

    Two weeks before the primary, Sanders criticized a rescue deal negotiated by U.S. House leaders and the Obama administration as having colonial overtones. In a letter to fellow Senate Democrats, Sanders said the House bill to create a federal control board and allow some restructuring of the territory's $70 billion debt would make "a terrible situation even worse."

    He later promised to introduce his own legislation to help the island. Campaigning on the island last month, Sanders promised to fight against "vulture funds" on Wall Street that he said would profit off the fiscal crisis.

    "That bill is anti-democratic and it's not in the best interest of Puerto Rico," said Jorge Gaskins, a 67-year-old farmer who supports Sanders and opposes a control board.

    Clinton has said she has serious concerns about the board's powers, but believes the legislation should move forward, or "too many Puerto Ricans will continue to suffer."

    Among those voting Sunday was Democratic Party superdelegate Andres Lopez, one of the party insiders who can vote for the candidate of their choice at the summer convention. He had remained uncommitted, but said Sunday he will support Clinton.

    Clinton has 1,809 pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses; Sanders has 1,519. When including superdelegates, her lead over Sanders is substantial — 2,357 to 1,565.

    With Lopez's endorsement, all seven of Puerto Rico's superdelegates have pledged their support for Clinton.

    "It is time to focus on squashing 'El Trumpo,'" he said, referring to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

  • Trump imposes fresh ban on six Islamic nations, excludes Iraq

    06/Mar/2017 // 2514 Viewers


    President Donald Trump has signed a new executive order on immigration, placing a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations.

    Iraq has been removed from the list of countries contained in the previous seven-nation order.

    Citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are the ones who would be subjected to a travel ban for the second time.

    The measure, which includes a 120-day ban on all refugees, takes effect on March 16.

    “Like every nation, the United States has a right to control who enters our country and to keep out those who would do us harm,” Trump said.

    Trump previously signed an order that banned citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the US, saying that it was necessary to keep the country safe from terrorism.

    The order, which resulted in chaos and mass protests, was suspended after a court order.

     Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s senior aide, had earlier told BBC quoted that Iraq will not be included in the list of countries whose citizens will banned from the US.

    She had also said that green card holders (legal permanent residents of the US) from the named countries will not be affected by the new order.

    Also, Syrian refugees would no longer be indefinitely barred.

    The 10-day advance notice would help to avoid some of the chaos at US airports that occurred on January 27 when the first executive order was announced without warning.

    Trump defended the lack of notice saying that “if the ban were announced with a one week notice, the ‘bad’ would rush into our country during that week”.

    The new executive order may experience the challenges the previous one faced because the previous was suspended by a court because judges found “no evidence that any alien from any of the countries named in the order” had committed a terrorist attack in the US.

  • Again, 'Seer' pupils tip Hillary to win US presidential election, predictions have never failed since 1968

    06/Nov/2016 // 397 Viewers


    For the past 48 years, students at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School have been casting their “votes” to determine the winner of each presidential election.
    And for the past 48 years, the school has never been wrong.
    With another heated election underway, again, the students headed to the voting booths during a mock presidential election on Wednesday to continue a tradition that has taken place at the Yorktown Heights, New York, school since it opened in 1968.
    “We’re pretty proud of it,” Benjamin Franklin Elementary School principal Patricia Moore told CBS News. “Every four years we continue it. We can’t skip an election nationwide, so we can’t skip it in our school.”
    The school is a melting pot, Moore said, which may have contributed to its accuracy over the years.
    “We have minority groups, students that speak English as a second language, white collar, blue collar,” Moore said. “It could be representative of the nation.”
    Tom McAdams, who was a fifth-grade social studies teacher at the time, began the political process nearly 50 years ago with third through sixth-grade students.
    Today, every class -- kindergarten through fifth grade -- participates.
    “Every year since Nixon, we’ve correctly predicted [the outcome of the election] based on the popular vote,” Moore explained. “We do our own electoral votes based on enrollment in the classes.”
    For months, the students have been learning about the candidates, who they only know as “Candidate A” and “Candidate B.” Instead of voting based on personalities and popularity, the students focus on the issues at hand.
    “We talk about exact facts and issues and put them on two sides of a spreadsheet,” Moore said. “Then the students debate the facts in class.”
    Eventually, the students were told which candidate they had been siding with, and with that in mind, they were ready to make their decision.
    On Wednesday, in small groups of about five, the students stepped into a voting booth to write down a candidate of their choice.
    By the end of the school day, after teachers calculated the votes and added them to a spreadsheet, there was a clear winner: Hillary Clinton.
    The Democratic presidential hopeful won with 52 percent (277 votes) compared to Republican rival Donald Trump with 43 percent (230 votes).
    Now all that’s left to do is wait -- and staff is starting to feel the pressure.
    Our “palms are sweaty,” said Moore ahead of Election Day on Nov. 8.

  • BREAKING: TRUMP shot, almost killed by assasin in RENO, secret service rush into action (WATCH VIDEO)

    06/Nov/2016 // 1840 Viewers


    During a late Saturday rally in Reno, Trump paused mid-speech to look into the crowd with his hands blocking the overhead lights. He seemed to spot something that caused him to freeze. Suddenly two Secret Service agents rushed onto the stage from the right side and grabbed Trump, rushing him off the stage.

    For a split second, Trump seemed unaware of who was grabbing him. The agents yelled GO GO GO! as they moved Trump rapidly off stage left, ducking behind the black curtain with Mr. Trump in tow.

    There was a frantic commotion in the crowd as rally-goers tried to determine what was happening, with some fleeing the chaos. Several soldiers in camo fatigues and Kevlar helmets crowded in from offstage and rushed into the crowd.


    Watch video:

    It appears that a gunman was apprehended by military personnel and led from the event. More details as they emerge.



    Trump confidently strode back onstage after just a few minutes, and thanked the Secret Service for their quick actions. Amazingly, he then proceeded to continue his speech, looking more energized than before!

  • World's most influential secret celebrity members of the Illuminati exposed!

    06/Nov/2016 // 1395 Viewers


    The Illuminati is a secret society founded in 1776 that is bent on world domination. The Illuminati has cast a wide net and infiltrated the world’s banking, political, entertainment, and academic sectors. Their members consist of the worlds most powerful and influential people. Upon joining, members are sworn to secrecy and rarely acknowledge the organization’s existence.

    Our crack-team of investigators has risked life and limbs to bring you these shocking revelations. In the following pages we will reveal some the Illuminati’s most powerful members.

    10. Barack Obama

    barack obama muslim

    We all know that president Obama is a communist-Muslim who is trying to undermine America as we know it, but that is far from his only agenda. Obama is also a high ranking member of the Illuminati and his subversive plans for America fall into a larger scheme to augment the secret society’s power.

    9. Ellen DeGeneres

    ellen degenerous

    Ellen DeGeneres hates gay people, more specifically, gay men. While a prominent lesbian herself, she considers male homosexuality to be an abomination and uses her wealth and entertainment industry influence to undermine the male gay marriage movement. Ellen actively set out to join the Illuminati to gain a powerful ally for her ambitions.

    In exchange for her services, mostly in the form of subliminal propaganda campaigns, the Illuminati is actively working to fulfill Ellen’s ultimate goal: a take-over of Australia, followed by a banishment of all male homosexuals therein, turning the country into the world’s first lesbian colony, and establishing her as Queen of the Lesbians.


    8. Jay Z


    Jay Z was a member of the Illuminati’s “Department of Urban Sabotage,” his duties included selling drugs (mostly crack) to inner city youths in an attempt to undermine urban development. His talents for rapping and business were quickly noticed by the leadership and they went on to finance his entertainment career.

    He has now risen to become the head of the Illuminati’s entertainment arm, where it is his duty to influence young people in whatever matter he is ordered to by the elusive society’s leadership.

     7. Adam Levine

    How as can you explain the success of such a talent-less hack? The Illuminati backed his “band,” Maroon 5, with their money and influence and forced his whiny, crappy music down our collective throats. Much like the Gods they think they are, the Illuminati works in mysterious ways. Our investigative team managed to uncover documents that prove their backing of Adam Levine, but we have not been able to find out what evil purpose is behind the operation.

    Know this, Adam Levine is an Illuminati agent and he has managed to infiltrate pop-culture. We must be watchful of his douchebaggery.

    6. June Shannon


    The Illuminati recruits the world best and brightest minds. So it’s no surprise that we found irrefutable evidence that June Shannon, Honey Boo Boo’s mother, is a high ranking member and part of the so-called Council of Strategic Planning that weaves the complicated webs behind the clandestine organization’s plans.


    Honey Boo Boo’s mom deals in high level cloak-and-dagger operations that reach the highest levels of the American, Jamaican, and Swedish governments. Her cunning mind and lack of scruples make her the perfect agent for this type of grand scheming.

    5. Snooki


    The Illuminati also deal in large-scale honey-pot operations. It recruits some of the world’s most beautiful and sophisticated women to seduce the world’s most influential men in order influence or later blackmail their decision making.

    Look no further than Snooki, of Jersey Shore fame. we uncovered documents stating that she was recruited to lure and seduce men like the secretary general of the United Nations; Ban Ki-moon, as well as Nelson Mandela, Steve Jobs and Tyler Perry. All of these powerful men have succumbed to her classy allure and subsequently become pawns for the secret society.

    4. Paula Deen


    In keeping with their tradition of deploying the world’s greatest mind to further realize their ambitions, master chef, Paula Deen, was brought into the fold in an ingenious plan to poison the poor.

    She meticulously promotes and sells unhealthy food to lower income Americans in an operation meant to “thin the heard.” Paula Deen’s food products, sold in super markets across the United States, are secretly laced with crack as well.

    3. Iggy Azalea

    We’re not sure who this is. Her name appeared numerous times in many of the secret documents we managed to acquire. Using an internet tool known as “Google,” we managed to find this photograph of her. She should be considered EXTREMELY dangerous.

    2. Tom, From MySpace

    tom from myspace

    MySpace was an Illuminati tool meant to keep tabs on the entire world. It was the brain-child of a shadowy figure known only as, Tom.

    An inside informant, with great risk to his life, recounted that Tom from MySpace, and June Shannon (the mother of Honey Boo Boo) concocted the brilliant plan to gain access to everyone’s personal and financial information via a massive social networking site.

    Our informant later dropped this bombshell: Tom is Honey Boo Boo’s real father. When Mama June became pregnant, Tom wanted out of the Illuminati because he did not want his child involved in their dangerous, high-stakes game of world domination. Which in turn led to his rebelling against the organization and sabotaging MySpace from within, leading to the websites sudden downfall.

    Tom was never heard from again, and to this day, he remains a hero to those who struggle against the Illuminati.

    1. Justin Bieber


    Justin Bieber has been trying to join the Illuminati for years, but they have consistently rebuffed him. The pop-singer has gone so far as to get an Illuminati tattoo in hopes of impressing the leadership. So far, we’ve gathered that the Illuminati at least in this instance, agree with the rest of the world; they hate Mr. Bieber.

    We’ve saved the most dangerous piece of evidence for last; the only known picture of the Illuminati’s leader. The brave reporter who obtained the picture was killed in the process. His name was Barry McCociner. His heroism will forever be remembered, his memory will live on, and we will expose the Illuminati in your honor. We miss you Barry.
