Bill O’Reilly & Lupe Fiasco’s TV Face-Off Over Terrorism!

Bill O'Reilly and Lupe Fiasco

Last night Lupe Fiasco appeared on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” and just as expected, the outspoken rapper and the extremely opiniated host Bill O’Reilly got into a little slagging match live on TV.

The Chicago MC appeared as a guest on the show to defend his previous comments where he claimedBarack Obama and the US government were the “biggest terrorists”.

O’Reilly wasted no time and went straight in for the kill: “President Obama is not a terrorist,” he said. “He’s trying to do what he believes is the right thing to do.”

Fiasco tried to explain that “every president before and after” Obama could also be described as a terrorist, because of American foreign policy. “If you’re going to fight terrorism, to me, you fight the root causes of terrorism,” he said.

But O’Reilly abruptly told him that his followers “are not exactly political science PhD’s” and accused the rapper of misleading his fans. “I don’t think that that matters,” Fiasco shot  back. “I don’t think that politics are as complex as people like to make them seem.”

The two men then got into a heated debate about the war in Afghanistan, with Fiasco highlighting that the war had been misguided since it had strayed from its original aims.

“Why are we in Afghanistan if it wasn’t to hunt down Al Qaeda and the terrorist network?” he asked. To which O’Reilly fired back with, “You are oversimplifying a message that is not true.”

It feels weird to see Bill O’Reilly actually defending Obama.

Lupe Fiasco Calls President Obama The Biggest Terrorist!

We all know and love Lupe Fiasco for his no holds bar, real and honest approach to music, interviews and life in general. And when it comes to politics, the Chicago native rapper is never one to hold back and mince his words. In a recent interview, Lupe called President Barack Obama the “biggest terrorist” of them all.

“In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America,” the outspoken lyricist told CBS News’ What’s Trending.

“For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us because it’s really just some oil, which we can really get on our own.”

Lupe, who did not vote in the last presidential election, also revealed he wont be voting at next years general election either: “I don’t vote. I don’t get involved in the political process because it’s meaningless, to be honest. I’m a real big believer if I’m gonna vouch for someone, then I’m gonna stand behind everything that they do,” he explained. “So politicians aren’t gonna do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”

The reporter then asked him what would happen if no one voted, to which he replied, “Who knows. Let’s try it out and see what happens.”

This isn’t the first time Lupe has expressed his dislike towards the president. On his politically-charged “Lasers” single, the 29-year-old wordsmith really lets rip at Obama…

And one more note, if you haven’t already got Lupe’s latest album, Lasers, you should check out – it’s pretty dope!

Ryan Giggs Officially Named As The Love-rat Super-Injunction Footballer

Yesterday Ryan Giggs’ badly kept secret was finally out, as it was revealed in the House of Parliament that the Manchester United legend was in fact the footballer who had taken out an expensive super injection to stop the media from covering or even mentioning that he had an affair with lads mag model Imogen Thomas.

The soccer idol’s six-month affair with the former Big Brother star was rattled out by The Sun newspaper, but it was Giggsy’s shocking nature of how determined he was to keep the truth from coming out that has really made him look bad.

After being caught cheating, he ruthlessly dropped his mistress like a hot potato and hit her with legal papers saying she’ll go to jail, should she ever speak about the affair. And while his identity was kept a ‘secret’, Imogen was left to face the heat alone.

Of course she was in the wrong too, so she only has herself to blame, but why it’s OK for her to be ousted and hounded by the press and not him, just seems totally unfair.

But the thing that really made this story ridiculous is when Giggs’ legal team tried to sue Twitter and their laughable attempts to stop users of the micro-blogging social networking site for tweeting about the affair, saying they could face two years in jail. Yep all 75,000 of them – which is just damn right ridiculous.

As a hardcore United fan, it’s very disappointing to see one of our greats fall from grace at such a pivotal point in his career. But what will make this worse is not the fact he cheated on his wife. He could have just come clean, said sorry and people would have eventually forgiven him and forgot about it within four months. I’m sure another footballer with a wondering eye would soon come along and steal his thunder.

But is was the silly lengths Giggs went trough, in order to try and keep the sordid affair a secret and his attempts to sue twitter, that is what will really make this story and run.

Personally, I blame his lawyers for even thinking that they could successfully go up against Twitter, that’s just stupid. They should have known better.

I hope Ryan Giggs can publically get through this and won’t be remembered as that ‘super-injunction footballer who slept with that chick from Big Brother’. Because let’s face it, the tabloids are going to go to town with this story….

Arnold Schwarzenegger Admits To Having A Lovechild With Member Of Staff!

After 25 years of marriage, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver recently revealed they’d split, after a quarter of a century together. And now the shocking details behind the couples sudden split, is more complicated than that of a Hollywood script.

In what’s bound to be one of this years biggest celebrity scandals, it has been revealed that Arnold fathered a lovechild with a member of the family’s household staff over ten years ago and only admitted his sordid secret to loyal wife, Maria, this January, after he’d completed his role as California Governor.  

And to make the situation even more complicated, the woman in question, continued to work for the family and allegedly only stopped working for them a few months ago, when Arnold’s political career was complete. Wow!

Maria, has broken her silence, reveling the situation has been very painful for her family:

This is a painful and heartbreaking time,” the journalist explained.

“As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”

The Terminator actor released the following statement yesterday:

“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused to Maria, my children and my family.

“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”

According to reports, the lovechild is a boy, said to be 14 year of age, which is even more shocking, as Arnold and and Maria’s youngest child is 13. Below is an exclusive picture obtained by TMZ of the woman in question and the child.

 These events have no doubt been difficult for the couple’s children – they have four teenage kids together. Arnold and Maria’s 17-year-old son Patrick posted the following message onhis twitter this morning.

Tiger Woods must be fist-pumping the air somewhere, because it seems like the celebrity love-cheat spotlight is officially off him now…

Osama Bin Laden’s Mistress Speaks Out!

We now all know he liked a bit of porn (a lot to be precise), but now it seems Osama Bin Laden was a bit of a player and had mistresses of all races and nationalities.

Kola Boof, an award-winning novelist, poet, television writer and activist has spoken about her love affair with the AlQaeda leader in the past. In her book, ‘Diary of a Lost Girl: The Autobiography of Kola Boof’, which was published a few years back, the Egyptian/Sudanese-American sensationally claims that her relationship with Bin Laden began when they met in a restaurant and he raped her that night.  Despite that, she carried on a lengthy affair with him, becoming a trusted guard over his soldiers and accompanied him on many personal and professional trips.

In the wake of Bin Laden death, Kola Boof has been splashed all over the US press and has decided to finally break her silence. She recently spoke with the  Daily Voice to set the record straight and tell her side of the story. In a very deep, and extremely candid conservation, she describes her former lover as “a monster, a genius, a poet, a racist woman-basher and a very passionate, deeply sensitive confused being.” She also reveals Bin Laden had a weird obsession with Whitney Houston and Western culture.

I warn you, it’s a very long read, but a very interesting one too. At the end, she signs off by saying: “In Any Mansion… It is the Maids and The Whores That Know The Most.”

Check it out in full below:

I just saw myself on the cover of the National Enquirer. It says “Exclusive Interview with Bin Laden’s Mistress”–but I’ve never given an interview to the National Enquirer; I have never in my life spoken to anyone at that magazine. In fact, up to this point, I have not given anyone anywhere an interview regarding my feelings on Osama Bin Laden’s death.

A week ago, my favorite television news anchor Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) stated that I was Somi’s “ex-wife” (because members of the Sudanese government authored a book claiming this). In Los Angeles, one of the top Black stations reported that because I tweeted about Osama’s demise two days before he died; I must be working for the CIA and was aware he was about to be killed. The cover of the National Enquirer claims that I was kept chained in Osama’s compound. None of this is true.

At this moment, I am embroiled in a serious matter that includes confrontations with Osama’s lead wife Najwa over possible monies that were left to me. I will get to that in a moment, but first to make it clear how I feel about Osama’s death and to make it clear why I haven’t felt like talking about it yet, here’s the Official Statement I gave the night Osama died:

“I rarely ever talk about Somi, but for the last two days on Twitter, something
came over me and I did nothing but Tweet about him.

Now I know why.

At last….I forgive Somi for everything he did to me and for all that I witnessed. I set him free and I dream for him to be healed.

My greatest sympathy is with his mother, Hamida, the only person in that family who is willing to hear from me. One mother to another, I close my eyes and embrace her with so much compassion.

I feel that no one has more accurately and fairly characterized her son than I have. I knew him to be a monster, a genius, a poet, a racist woman-basher and a very passionate, deeply sensitive confused being.

Like all of us, he was somebody’s child.

I am not God, so I leave him to whatever comes next. I still have his poems and each year they have a different meaning. But now the papers are cool to the touch. I feel many things…things that people would not understand…I look at the gray hair I have…and all I can tell you is this….

Usama, Usama, Usama–Peace.”

I think this statement spoken in my own voice reveals a lot for those who have intellect and can understand that the “Monster” Bin Laden was a real multi-dimensional person for those who knew him; not a media contrived cartoon. I have been greatly demeaned and disrespected by the U.S. press regarding my affiliation with him and I would like to say one thing straight out–Ninety percept of the media’s problem with me is that I’m a Black Woman who looks Black and not mixed. It has been said to my face. Connie Chung and her producers at CNN asked me point blank, “Why would a man of Bin Laden’s wealth and stature have a black mistress?”

Exotic deceitful monikers like ‘sex slave’ and ‘chained woman’ are applied to my image but were never applied to Patti Hearst–who was held against her will for more than a year and had sex trains with the nine Black men holding her–yet was not given a single exotic title. And unlike the garden variety White public mistress (Monica Lewinsky, Camilla Parker Bowles, etc.), my word alone nor my stature as a strong African novelist, activist and poet is enough to accrue common respectful treatment towards my person or my image. Extraordinarily literate facts and information I wrote about Osama years ago, things that could have helped them find Osama, are ignored as they focus on tabloid-like single sentences from my memoir (Osama lusted for Whitney Houston!; he was a Pot head). It was me, after all, who said ten years ago that Osama’s guards used cell phones (I was crucified by Peter Bergen for that; though they discovered last week that it’s true). It was me who reported ten years ago about Osama inventing the “kidney dialysis myth”–me who reported on his marijuana gardens and his obsession with Western culture. It was me who first wrote about his hatred for Sadaam Hussein.

Male journalists like Morgan Spurlock (who says he laughed about my rape) and supposed Bin Laden expert Peter Bergen (whose published facts have now been proven to be less accurate than mine) discuss me as though I’m a deceased taxi dancer or a maid who stole coins from their nightstand. Sadly, because Black Americans can’t decipher anything until White people confirm and approve it for them–I have been just as unfairly treated by Black journalists and so called Black academics and intellectuals. Which makes me shudder to think what would have happened to Thomas Jefferson’s slave Sally Hemmings had she dared write in her own words about her affair with the President of the United States. How would her claims of child rape turned to a forced long term relationship to eventual love been received by her own people?

Sally Hemmings was twelve years old when she gave birth to President Thomas Jefferson’s son, Thomas Jefferson Jr. He was in his fifties (I’ve since learned that the majority of Black American slave women got their first rapes between the ages of nine and thirteen and were freely raped by both White masters and fellow Black male slaves). As I well know, and share with Sally Hemmings–just because someone rapes you doesn’t mean you don’t go on to have a deep relationship with that person.

Osama raped me the first night we met. But out of my fear and determination to survive we became comrades; lovers; we wrote poetry together, I did his hair, I cooked for him, he gave me jewels and money; sent me to Milan on shopping sprees; buried one of his guards that I killed and made it so I only did one night in jail. Living at La Maison Arabe was hardly the life of a slave–I wasn’t in chains, honey. I supervised Osama’s men despite not being allowed to leave Osama. And let’s not forget that half the wives of Arab rich men live that exact same way–many are married against their will, fathers give away daughters, women are snatched off the streets. Women had no rights in the Arab Muslim world when I was there modeling, acting and “hostessing.”

It hurts to have so much valuable information; so much intelligence and to be so truthful and articulate–yet have “white powerful news controllers” decide that you’re not the right image for what they’d like to promote. Therefore, part of history is always missing.

Osama’s wife, Najwa Bin Laden, who wrote so snidely about me in her memoir a few years ago is now forced, at last, to recognize me. I’m sure she’d rather have me killed than see me collect money from her husband. According to her I was Somi’s “abeed lan sharmuta” (n***er slave whore). But that’s alright. I’m the one he kept for pleasure and not mere Islamic duty–as she well knows and sleeps alone with–and always slept alone with. Pitiful head covered door mat jockey.

The rank ignorant pettiness (well Kola’s not pretty enough!) and the treatment my story and my personhood have received shows you exactly why the Americans couldn’t find Osama for more than a decade. It shows you why Peter Bergen in all his almighty “million dollar advance” rhetoric could never locate Osama but had to degrade and slander me to protect the credibility of his own toilet-read tomes. And it shows most of all–that you can’t keep a good woman down. I was not the one who revealed that I’d been with Somi. The London Guardian newspaper started it all; I originally denied the story out of embarrassment and then the U.S. Homeland Security (more like “Gangland Security”) forced me to admit to it. From then on, I was trapped in a maze of defending my reputation and my personhood. And so the tragedy of my life is that I have told nothing but truth…yet the truth did not set me free.

My one revenge is that I’m not going anywhere. I think the Americans have noticed that by now. And I leave you with this bit of common sense and mother wit–”In any mansion…it’s the maids and the whores…who know the most.” You can’t stop what’s real.

George Bush Talks About Kanye ‘Racist’ Slur {Video}

Remember back in 2005 during a Hurricane Katrina TV special, when Kanye West abruptly announced live on air that George Bush doesn’t care about black people? Yes, of course you do, how can you forget. Well the former President has a new book out and during a recent interview Bush described the Power rappers accusations as the lowest point in his presidential career.

Tony Blair Does David Letterman!

Tony Blair recently appeared on American chat show king, David Letterman‘s show. The Former British Prime Minister – who’s promoting his new book – revealed what he misses about being the PM.

You know what? I actually really liked Blair. I thought he was quite charismatic. His ‘special relationship’ with George Bush was the beginning of his downfall though. Here’s hoping Ed Milliband can reignite Labour, because let’s be honest, Gordon Brown sure didn’t!

OBAMA ADDS LIL WAYNE AND NAS TO IPOD PLAYLIST!

Barack Obama has to be the coolest President. The American leader is currently on the cover of hip US magazine Rolling Stone and inside reveals he listens to Lil Wayne and Nas on his iPod. We all knew Obama was a Jay-Z fan, but it seems the commander-in-chief is a fan of hip-hop in general.

When asked what music he’d been listening to lately, that speaks to him, he answered: “Thanks to Reggie [Love, the president’s personal aide], my rap palate has greatly improved,” he explained. “Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I’ve got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff, but I would not claim to be an expert.”

The President went on to say his two young daughters keep him hip, with regards to music: “Malia and Sasha are now getting old enough to where they start hipping me to things. Music is still a great source of joy and occasional solace in the midst of what can be some difficult days.”

Maybe when Obama visits the UK he can listen to some grime…

Wyclef Fires Back At Sean Penn and Pras!

When it was announced that Wyclef Jean would be running for president of Haiti, not everyone was enthusiastic about the news. Hollywood actor Sean Penn and Clef’s former Fugees partner Pras publically expressed their disapproval at the producer/rappers presidential bid. Now Wyclef has fired back. During a recent live performance at Hot 97′s On Da Reggae Tip at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, Clef had some choice words for both Penn and Pras…

“If I was president…I got a message for Sean Penn, maybe he ain’t see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine. I got a message for Praswell, even though you don’t want to support me, I got love for you, even though you only kicked 8 bars for the Fugees.”

Pras And Sean Penn Aren’t Backing Wyclef’s Presidential Bid!

    

Wyclef Jean recently announced his presidential bid for his native country, Haiti. The former Fugees singer/rapper may have been raised in the US, but has always stayed true to his Haitian roots. The Caribbean island was hit with a devastating earthquake in January of this year, a catastrophe which killed more than 230,000 people and left the capital, Port-au-Prince in ruins…

There’s no doubting Wyclef has Haiti’s best interest in his heart, but many are questioning the rappers credentials, claiming he’s not experienced enough to run the country. One high profile person who has openly questioned Wyclef’s decision to run for president is Hollywood actor Sean Penn – who’s been living in Haiti for the last few months, helping to rebuild the damage caused by the earthquake.

“What the Haitian people need now is a leader who is genuinely willing to sacrifice,” Penn tells CNN. “I haven’t seen or heard anything of him in these last six months that I’ve been in Haiti. I think he’s an important voice. I hope he doesn’t sacrifice that voice by taking the eye off the very devastating realities on the ground.”

Now Wyclef’s former Fugees bandmate Pras has spoken out against his presidential bid. During an interview with 1515, the ‘Ghetto Superstar’ rapper explained that he’s not convinced Clef is the man for the job:

“Listen, I love Wyclef to death..we came up together, we grew up together, we basically called each other cousins. But the reality is this, we need a real leader. Not just a regular leader, but a transformative leader. Someone that’s gonna be able to galvanize the Haitians down on the field, the Haitian-Americans, the international community, it’s a collective support — to take this country to the 21st century. And I’m just not convinced Wyclef is the one for that.”

The Haitian people will go the polls on November 28.
