Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead in West Texas. Updates…..

Justice Antonin Scalia Found Dead at Texas Ranch. Aged 79

 Texas Gov. Greg Abbott
” unwavering defender of the written constitution.”
” He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution”

Federal officials said Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas. Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.  Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia, of the Western Judicial District of Texas, was notified about the death by the U.S. Marshals Service. U.S. District Judge Fred Biery said he was among those notified about Scalia’s death.
“I was told it was this morning,” Biery said of Scalia’s death. “It happened on a ranch out near Marfa. As far as the details, I think it’s pretty vague right now as to how,” he said. “My reaction is it’s very unfortunate. It’s unfortunate with any death, and politically in the presidential cycle we’re in, my educated guess is nothing will happen before the next president is elected.”
The U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI are involved in the investigation. Officials with the law enforcement agencies declined to comment. A federal official who asked not to be named said there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes. A gray Cadillac hearse pulled into the ranch last Saturday afternoon. The hearse came from Alpine Memorial Funeral Home.
Abbott said. “We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to his family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”
Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

Pedophile Pastor rapes teenager, during ‘waist pain massage’

Pedophile Pastor Repeatedly Rapes “Volunteered Teenager” during massage sessions for his “Waist Pain” 


Pastor Amakiri requested a ‘teenage girl’ from his congregation to heal his pain.

  Photo: punch


The General Overseer of Agape Baptist Church, Pastor Oprite Amakiri, has been arrested and detained by the police in Rumuolumeni Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The randy pastor had requested his congregation ‘volunteer ‘ a girl between the ages of 12 to 18 to massage his aching waist which had been bothering him for a couple of years. An 18 year old was ‘volunteered’ and the pastor proceeded to take advantage of her in her house.

The pastor raped the girl on three occasions and threatened to deal with her if she dared expose his deeds to anyone,. This continued until the victim called his bluff and reported to her sister who then called the police.

The Flavour Effect on Fans at a Concert at

Flavour always owns the stage when he performs. This occurs pretty often at his concerts.

Pastors or Magicians?

Late Peller’s Son Explodes:

“Oyakhilome, TB Joshua’s Miracles Are Not From God”

Hmmmm…. Absolutely no comments from me. Beef 2016 continues.

Bisop Kayode Peller ‘These pastors emply mesmerism’  


“When you castigate these great men of God, you are no more for God. They do miracles but don’t know what they teach.

 The General Overseer of the Fingers of God Church, Alagbado Lagos state, Bishop Kayode Joseph Abiola Peller, and son of the late renowned magician, Professor Peller, has called out to the Senior Pastor of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, T. B. Joshua, and Chris Oyakhilome, Christ Embassy founder, accusing them of being magicians.Bishop Kayode, a renowned magician, said the duo, his colleagues in the ministry, use their eyes with demonic powers in them to superimpose their thoughts into people.In a recent interview with FLIP TV, he said, “What I see Temitope Joshua do from my own magic experience is what we call mesmerism. It is also called hypnotism.” He claimed that while T. B. Joshua uses Kabballah magic to hypnotize his congregation and the general public over his miracles, Chris Oyakhilome’s association with Joshua makes him a suspect. 
Taking on Oyakhilome, Kayode said, “I used to believe Oyakhilome before. That ended the day I saw him and Joshua doing miracles and castigating our pastors, Ayo and Okonkwo. “I would say they use magic on their followers since I was a former magician. I see in their actions hypnotism and seduction. I mean the way we used to seduce our congregation; those that come to watch our magic those days.

“I see mesmerism, hypnotism and occult display in what they do. How can people jubilate over atmosphere of miracles and before they get to the bus stop, the miracles have gone. Miracles are not limited to atmosphere. God is in charge of everywhere,” he added.

According to the Bishop, “They use the eyes with the demonic power in them to superimpose their thoughts into people. It happens, for most of those walking in the streets have very weak spirits. For there is witchcraft ability in every man.

“That is what we call telepathising: I mean, when I see them do their drama of healing while dancing from one side to another. I know its hypnotism.

“These are dangerous occultist words. Telepathising, hypnotism, occultism, kabbalah magic are processes of ruling the minds of weaker men. It could go to the length of seeing the magic maker in the dreams once the weaker person allows the demonic spirit of the conjurer to influence his mind.”

Defending his criticism on the duo, the reformer said, “Let nobody think that I am jealous of them because their churches are big. If I want to make mine big I know what to do. I am the son of Peller. I know where things happen.

“I am not a ‘mugu’, to say the truth. They can’t fool me. I want to make heaven. I don’t want my work to be a waste; for every work built on faulty foundation, shall not stand the test of time.

“Foundation of deceit, occultism and demonic power cannot stand the test of time when the owner leaves. Jesus will deny them on that day.

“God only can say if Joshua is a real man of God. I don’t judge them; only God can do that.

“Having said all these, I have nothing against them. For I feel that nothing can be except God allows,” Bishop Kayode quipped.

The Kardashian Ladies Kim and Klohe) Loyalty – Quite Admirable

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom off to dinner post Yeezy 3 fashion show.

… ‘Free the woman, she can remain friends with her ex husband. What is wrong with that? It means they are in a good space. In any case, don’t forget she is also a lifeline.’

He's back: Odom made his first public appearance since his near fatal overdose in October, as he attended Kanye West's New York Fashion Week show on Thursday with estranged wife Khloe

My admiration for this Kardasian clan has grown in the past few months
Klohe’s marraige to Lamar breaks down and she moves on
Lamar her husband breaks down and odees (overdoses) on drug literally frying everything in him up. Klohe drops everything, put aside her life and goes to his beside to help nurse him back. This is not an easy task.  I give her 3  shekere  for that.

Showing Klohe at Lamar’s side as he recuperates, now here they are going for diner. Shows there was a friendship before an within the marriage
This is a good loyal friend to have.

Kim Kardashian also has lots of loyalty.

 Kim Kardasian another Loyal and Brave Soul

    Still some way to go: Lamar allegedly still has some issues with his speech and lapses in memory, but is hoping to be able to run again in the future

Heck, she even wore his designs from Yeezy 2 am walked the streets with him and his covered face.

Mordern Fashion: Elegance or Vulgarism or #Whaarrisdis ? 100 years of Vogue

100 Years Exhibition of Vogue Fashion shows a curious thread

  • How style went out of fashion
  • Introduction of vulgarity and voyeurism
  • Pointless images that leave you asking whaarrisdis? Wey de fashion here naa?

 credit dailymail
Women walk by framed photos at the press preview for 'Vogue 100: A Century of Style' exhibiting the photographs that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916 at National Portrait Gallery
Showing some of the whaa whaa pictures

As the time line indicates, the tone and quality of images shift from style and beauty to  to a modern day cynical interpretation of ‘style’ loaded with nudity and ‘shock therapy’ that leave you asking wharridis (scratching your head) and wondering what fashion magazine you bought

As the years roll the focus comes back to fashion  once again becomes something real, tangible, with the focus being more on style etc….  follow dailymail for the rest the story

As the present gives way to the past, not only do the tone and quality of the Vogue pictures change, with digital reverting to film and old-fashioned lighting replacing Photoshop, so do style and beauty take the centre stage, casting out modern-day cynicism and arrogance

Kenya atletes on doping ban

Kenya Athletics boss accused of demanding bribe

Two two Kenyan athletes serving a four-year ban for doping at 2015 world championships, Joy Sakari, left, and Francisca Koki Manunga, right, have accused the chief executive of Athletics Kenya, the country’s governing body for track and field. He allegedly asked each for a US $24,000 bribe to reduce their suspensions.

Joy and Francisca  told The AP that CEO Isaac Mwangi asked for the payment in an Oct. 16 meeting, but that they could not raise the money. They were informed of their four-year bans in a Nov. 27 email, but never filed a criminal complaint because, they say, they had no proof to back up their bribery accusation and also feared repercussions.

Mwangi dismissed the allegation as “just a joke,” denied ever meeting privately with the athletes and said Athletics Kenya has no power to shave time off athletes’ bans.
“We have heard stories, athletes coming and saying, ‘Oh, you know, I was asked for money,’” Mwangi said. “But can you really substantiate that?”

Sakari and Manunga, told AP they would be willing to testify to the ethics commission of the IAAF, the global governing body of athletics. The commission already is investigating allegations that AK officials sought to subvert anti-doping in Kenya, solicited bribes and offered athletes reduced bans. The probe has led to the suspensions of AK’s president, Isaiah Kiplagat, a vice president, David Okeyo, and AK’s former treasurer, Joseph Kinyua

The athletes spoke to AP in an on-camera interview in Embu, a ramshackle town 130 kilometers (80 miles) northeast of Nairobi where they were housed in police accommodation.
Sakari also raced at the 2012 London Olympics and 2009 worlds. In Beijing, she competed under the name Zakary, but Sakari is her preferred spelling. She indicated that she is now done with athletics, because she will be 33 when her ban expires.
Manunga, 23, said she would have paid to return sooner to competition.
“For me, those four years are too many,” she said. “If I had the money, I’d have paid. But I didn’t have it. So I just left.”

Barbara Bush was the True GOP New Hampshire Winner

Jeb Bush leaving republican presidential primaries?

 Friday, the Huffingtonpost screamed

 “Jeb Bush Seeks To Escape The Jaws Of Humiliation In New Hampshire” 

This might be an overly hasty dismissal of a well funded and pedigreed campaign. However, the truth is that Jeb Bush who began the campaign as the consensus favorite to win the Republican nomination has a campaign that is heavily listing water.
Yes, he has raised more than $100 million through his super PAC before even officially entering the race. But since then, Bush’s decline in relevance has been as steady as it has been disconcerting for a storied GOP clan that has already produced two commanders-in-chief and isn’t used to being embarrassed in the family business of presidential politics. 
Jeb Bush puts on a fire jacket during a campaign stop at Globe Manufacturing, a family owned business for more than 125 years that makes suits for firefighters.
Sadly, no gravitas

See ore after the break

In Bush’s camp, the thinking goes that Jeb has to save himself in New Hampshire, finishing ahead of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, if he wants to remain a viable candidate heading into the South Carolina primary. Then and only then will the time come to deploy the nation’s 43rd president, who famously lost the 2000 New Hampshire primary by 19 points to John McCain but then came back for a campaign-saving victory in the Palmetto State.
Easier said than done
Whether he will make it that far is another issue entirely. His path lies in emerging the most viable establishment alternative candidate to Donald Trump and Ted Cruze. Can he play it close enough to reap the benefits of being a close front runner in early states then spring in the more Bush friendly later states? 
Right now he is grappling with the prospect of a debilitating letdown on Tuesday that at this point seems more probable than not, and the candidate himself remains unable to escape the symbolism of doom.
Donald Trump – Republican front  running critically needs to win New Hampshire primaries

The truth is that in today’s nuance-free campaign environment, amply potrayed by other candidates like Trump, Cruz Rubio, Christie, Fiorina, that appears to be resonating with Republican primary voters, as Bush’s nuanced, meassured campaign style appears like a relic to a more genteel era in comparison.

Still, New Hampshire voters have surprised us many, many times before. Bush has a strong ground game in place here, and his loyal campaign advisers are intent on pulling out all of the stops before Tuesday’s primary.

Desperation can be a useful tool in presidential politics. And there is no doubt that Jeb Bush is desperate.
