Dear Oprah Windbag. Nice Nail In Coffin Of Race Relations.

Oprah Winfrey is a big dopey racist elitist schmuck.

To every member of the Black community the Video below of Dr. King is from his “I have a dream speech” I would venture to say 90-95 percent of White Americans believe in what Dr. King says.

We are not the enemy. We do not HATE you no matter what you have been told. Now let’s be honest do you also believe in Dr. Kings words?

What percentage of Black community do you think believes them? You were lied to by people like Oprah and the Democratic. I’m sure our readers here at FOTM get it, but hey if I can get one driveby reader to consider.

Now for our Nitwit of the day  Oprah Winbag.———-stupid-clueless

 Oprah Winfrey tells BBC many Americans hate Obama because he’s BLACK

 The Right Scoop on November 14th, 2013

Oprah Winfrey is going around the world telling everyone that Americans are racist while she promotes her new film:

Oprah Winfrey has been a prominent supporter of Barack Obama. She thinks that both he and the Office of President have been treated with contempt because of the colour of his skin.

( No Oprah, it’s because he is evil and remember he is half white so we own him too.)

“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

Yup, what he said.

Yup, what he said.

And In The Most Ridiculous Thing I Ever Heard Of Category.

Luxury toilet users warned of hardware flaw

People can also store records of their bowel movements on the My Satis app.

People can also store records of their bowel movements on the My Satis app.

By Zoe KleinmanTechnology reporter, BBC News

A luxury toilet controlled by a smartphone app is vulnerable to attack, according to security experts.

Retailing for up to $5,686 (£3,821), the Satis toilet includes automatic flushing, bidet spray, music and fragrance release.

The toilet, manufactured by Japanese firm Lixil, is controlled via an Android app called My Satis.

But a hardware flaw means any phone with the app could activate any of the toilets, researchers say.

The toilet uses bluetooth to receive instructions via the app, but the Pin code for every model is hardwired to be four zeros (0000), meaning that it cannot be reset and can be activated by any phone with the My Satis app, a report by Trustwave’s Spiderlabs information security experts reveals.

“An attacker could simply download the My Satis application and use it to cause the toilet to repeatedly flush, raising the water usage and therefore utility cost to its owner,” it says in its report.

“Attackers could [also] cause the unit to unexpectedly open/close the lid, activate bidet or air-dry functions, causing discomfort or distress to [the] user.”

The limited range of bluetooth means that anyone wishing to carry out such an attack would need to be fairly close to the toilet itself, said security expert Graham Cluley.

“It’s easy to see how a practical joker might be able to trick his neighbours into thinking his toilet is possessed as it squirts water and blows warm air unexpectedly on their intended victim, but it’s hard to imagine how serious hardened cybercriminals would be interested in this security hole,” he told the BBC.

“Although this vulnerability seems largely harmless, what’s clear is that companies building household appliances need to have security in mind just as much as computer manufacturers.”

Pope Benedict XVI to resign

Pope Benedict XVI announces his resignation in a surprise statement

UPDATE!!!    Pope Benedict XVI will resign on Feb. 28, The Vatican announced Monday, according to the Associated Press.

For more information… http://www.politico.com

Pope Benedict XVI is to resign at the end of this month after nearly eight years as the head of the Catholic Church, saying he is too old to continue at the age of 85.

The unexpected development – the first papal resignation in nearly 600 years – surprised governments, Vatican-watchers and even his closest aides.

The Vatican says it expects a new Pope to be elected before Easter.

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope in 2005 after John Paul II’s death.

The BBC’s David Willey in Rome says the move has come as a shock, but in theory, there has never been anything stopping Pope Benedict or any of his predecessors from stepping aside.

Under Canon Law, the only conditions for the validity of such a resignation are that it be made freely and be properly published.

A Vatican spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, said that even the Pope’s closest aides did not know what he was planning to do and were left “incredulous”. He added that the decision showed “great courage” and “determination”.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti is quoted as saying he was “greatly shaken by this unexpected news”.

The brother of the German-born Pope said the pontiff had been advised by his doctor not to take any more transatlantic trips and had been considering stepping down for months.

Talking from his home in Regensburg in Germany, Georg Ratzinger said his brother was having increasing difficulty walking and that his resignation was part of a “natural process”.

He added: “His age is weighing on him. At this age my brother wants more rest.”

‘Incapacity’At 78, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was one of the oldest new popes in history when elected.

He took the helm as one of the fiercest storms the Catholic Church has faced in decades – the scandal of child sex abuse by priests – was breaking.e took the helm as one of the fiercest storms the Catholic Church has faced in decades – the scandal of child sex abuse by priests – was breaking.

n a statement, the pontiff said: “After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

“I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.

“However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to steer the boat of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me.

“For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.”

A German government spokesman said he was “moved and touched” by the surprise resignation of the pontiff.

“The German government has the highest respect for the Holy Father, for what he has done, for his contributions over the course of his life to the Catholic Church.

“He has left a very personal signature as a thinker at the head of the Church, and also as a shepherd.”

Have you seen the BBC Olympic web page?

They have a list of all the countries participating in the London Olympics along with their athletes and key facts about the country.

Seems the BBC is taking the same stance as the United Nations and will not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  In a speech in June 2008, then-presidential-candidate Barack Obama said “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”

Take a look at some of the countries participating in the Olympics.

Iraq: Capital – Baghdad.

Languages: Arabic, Kurdish.

Iraq at the Olympics: 1948 First Olympic appearance.

Pakistan: Capital – Islamabad.

Languages: English, Punjabi, Urdu.

Pakistan at the Olympics: 1948 First Olympic appearance.

Palestine is recognised as a competing country by the IOC but is not recognised as a modern state. Intended seat of government: East Jerusalem. Ramallah serves as administrative capital.

Palestine at the Olympics: 1996 First Olympic appearance.

Israel Seat of Government: Jerusalem, though most foreign embassies are in Tel Aviv.

Barry Davies remembers the tragic terrorist attack on the Munich 1972 Olympic Games in the third of a 10-part series.

At least the BBC is being consistent with the standards set by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the organization that allowed Muslim countries to block the “One-Minute of Silence” campaign to honor the 11 murdered Israeli athletes from the 1972 Munich Games.  “Games organisers Locog and the IOC may fear provoking a walkout from some Arab countries and are keen to avoid the games being politicised.”

I’m sure all this pandering to the Muslim countries will guarantee that not one terrorist attack will occur at the London Games.

I just saw this on the BBC America news broadcast.  The good news is no one was injured!

The video is a clip from a brand-new ice hockey rink Námestovom, where young hockey players were training with former NHL player Richard Zednik. Everything is calm at the beginning of the video, but you can hear some strange noises at the beginning of the clip, ones that sound like the building is under some kind of external pressure.

Not True: Jewish Court Sentences Dog to Death by Stoning

UPDATE:

The JC.com, June 20, 2011, unequivocally states that “no dog stoned to death in Jerusalem.”

This bogus story was first reported by an Israeli newspaper, Maariv. The story then went viral and made headlines around the world, and was the “Most Read” story on the BBC – despite a correction and apology being printed in Maariv.

A statement from the Jerusalem court said:

“There is no basis for stoning dogs or any other animal in the Jewish religion, not since the days of the Temple or Abraham.

The female dog found a seat in the corner of the court. And the children were delighted by it; there were hundreds outside the court. They are used to seeing stray cats but most have never seen a dog before. The only action we took was to dial the number of the Jerusalem Municipality to get the people in charge to take it away.

There was no talk of reincarnation, a lawyer has never been mentioned, either now or 20 years ago, and there was no stoning. Such inventions are a kind of blood libel, and we wonder why the inventor of the story did not continue to describe how we collected the blood of the dog to make our matzah.”

This is one of those WTF news.

A Jewish rabbinical court in Israel recently condemned a dog to death by stoning. The court believes the dog to be the reincarnation of a secular lawyer who had insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago.

Happily, before the sentence could be carried out, the dog escaped.

Agence France Presse reports from Jerusalem on June 17, 2011 that the large dog made its way into the Monetary Affairs Court in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, frightening judges and plaintiffs.

Despite attempts to drive the dog out of the court, the hound refused to leave the premises. So one of the sitting judges recalled a curse the court had passed down upon a secular lawyer who had insulted the judges 20 years ago. At that time, the judges asked that divine retribution be visited on the lawyer by having his spirit be moved into the body of a dog, an animal considered impure by traditional Judaism.

Certain schools of thought within Judaism believe in the transmigration of souls, or reincarnation.

Convinced that the large dog is the reincarnation of the offensive lawyer, one of the rabbinical court judges sentenced the animal to death by stoning by local children. But the dog managed to escape.

When an animal-welfare organisation filed a complaint with the police against the head of the court, Rabbi Avraham Dov Levin, the rabbi denied that the judges had called for the dog’s stoning. One of the court’s managers, however, confirmed the report of the lapidation sentence to Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot: “It was ordered… as an appropriate way to ‘get back at’ the spirit which entered the poor dog.”
