    My guess is that it was a "pay for play" type service and he wanted to rip her off. I am sure that the gambling debt that he probably owes will get increased since if it was as I suggested, those very same "businessmen" will extract a heavy toll on him for messing with one of their "assets."

    With her stance against police brutality, I wonder how she feels when her bodyguards bum-rush someone who is trying to get a picture of her when she is not feeling like being photographed. Sure it's ok for her own personal security guards that she can afford (and I am not saying that isn't unfair), but why is it that the likes of her and other so called "celebs" can have personal guards that will rough you up if you get too close, and yet we expect the police to be polite to people who are in the act of breaking crimes and resisting arrest. Hollywood Hypocrisy.

    Beyonce extolls natural African hair just as the camera turns to her smiling four-year-old daughter,

    As some have said, with bleached blonde hair. Funny she did a tribute to Malcom X in the Superbowl. She does understand that it was Black Muslims who gunned him down and not white cops because he had splintered away from the Nation of Islam and saw them as being racist, and that was done so that the issue of income inequality and poverty could keep the races divided.

    A compound 4 kilometers away from the main venue of the Group of Seven summit to be held in central Japan in May is owned by a senior member of Japan’s largest crime syndicate,

    Somehow this seems appropriate. Maybe the G7 group can give the Yaks some tips on not getting caught.

    Alphaape - out of curiosity, what do you as a black man do to get your house (black men) in order, regarding all the guns and drugs and gangs etc?

    @ Strangeland: If you have every thumbed through my posts here in JT, you would see that I have called for harsh penalties of the people who commit crimes in the Black community, as well as not adhering to the so called "victimization" mentality that many people blame as the cause of so many of the Black on Black crimes. Also, one thing to remember, I am not an organized religion and have a specific dogma to preach to the world.

    Funny how you can say that just because I am black that we all belong to a "house" that we need to get in order, when there are differences of opinion among blacks just as there are among other races and religions. The difference is that this particular mosque has shown a tendency to lean more to the radical side, and even some Muslims have said this was a bad place to visit.

    “We have to understand: An attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths,” Obama said. He said it fell on all Americans to speak up.

    Sorry but it's not. In their eyes (radical Islamist) they are not doing the bombings and terrorism for any particular country or nation, but in the name of their religion as they see how it should be practiced. I will say this, he is right when he says an attack on one is an attack on all, since they (radical Islamist) don't care if you are Hindu (Muslim attacks in India), Buddhist (Muslim attacks in southern Thailand and in Burma), Catholic (Muslim attacks in Mindanao in the southern Philippines), Eastern Orthodox (Muslim attacks in central Russia); or protestant (Muslim attacks in Europe/America/Nigeria, etc.) They attack one they have attacked them all at one point.

    Instead of blaming other religious groups for being a bit apprehensive, maybe he should have told the Mosque it's time to get their house in order.

    Blood begets blood, violence begets violence, hatred begets hatred.

    We could go round and round on this but let's look at a few facts. 1. These guys are kidnapping their own country men and people in the local area not because they support US policies, but because they choose to practice a different religion than them. 2. Every measure should be done to try to minimize civilian deaths, but the enemy doesn't seem to care about who lives and who dies, and though I am not saying we do the same barbaric things they do like capturing young girls and raping them or selling them into slavery, but the enemy will need to be killed. 3. Though the survivors may have some remorse from bombing from coalition forces, and be on the wrong end of some of the bombings, I am sure that they may want to have it ended by eradicating the enemy, knowing that their kind will not rise again and do it to them again. 4. Blood begets blood, but as I pointed out any survivors on the Boko side already have a hatred against the coalition forces and if they comprise US forces against the US and the rest of the west simply because they hate us for our religious beliefs. If they also want to add that we are hated because we blew up their followers who were running around killing and looting and raping, what do I care? They never liked me (US) anyway.

    Yeah, that strategy has worked wonders with ISIS.

    Actually it has somewhat. The reason why airstrikes are not fully effective is because of the Rules of Engagement (ROE) set in place at least on the US side. Where we can't bomb unless we are 99% sure that no civilian collateral damage will be generated and we have also gone and dropped leaflets in areas we are about to bomb letting people know that we are coming. Not too bright giving the enemy a heads up that it's about to rain explosives on you.

    They have intelligence sources as to where they are hiding, but as I have stated because of ROE we don't go after them. This issue is being "managed" badly instead of being fought wisely.

    by our "obligation" to take in millions of people from the world's most dangerous places, where nearly everyone adheres to bigoted medieval attitudes. A lose-lose-lose proposition, indeed.

    @ Jeff Lee: I agree and to your earlier point about the West being blamed for causing this if we intervene. I Same thing happened back in Rwanda in the 90's as the world stood by and did nothing. In my opinion, since we have a good idea where these idiots are based, drop a few dozen Liquid gas bombs and blast them out. Instead of brining refugees to the west, clear out lands (better still the bad guys) and make the place safe tor them to live in their own homeland.

    The 6-year Islamic uprising has killed about 20,000 people and driven 2.5 million from their homes.

    Savages the all are! If the US were to bomb them and their fellow Islamists anywhere in the world, and we miss and hit some civilians in collateral damage, the world would go in a tizzy and call the US the biggest war criminal. Yet, these clowns get to burn and shoot people just because they are a different religion and the world remains silent.

    For those who wish to bash all religion, let me stop you. Name to me any other religion that currently goes into areas, shoots and burns, kidnaps and rapes others not of their own religion? Yeah Christianity may have had a heavy hand in the past but that was a long time ago. Time for the world to wake up and deal with these thugs.

    Funny, my being a Black man in America, all I have heard from some of my own is that the USA does nothing for the people of Africa, and that the government didn't care since all the previous presidents were "angry old white men" who would not want to commit US forces to tackle issues in Africa. Now we have a Black president, where are those same voices in my community?

    What concrete plans has Trump offered regarding either of these problems?

    @ MrBurn: You haven't been keeping up have you. Trump at least mentioned before this event happened on a ban for all Muslim immigration into the USA. The press and others gasped and clutched their pearls and fell onto the collective fainting couches with the vapors saying how could someone running for office make such a blanket statement and what about human rights, etc. After this tragic event, we find that the female shooter, came from Pakistan via Saudi Arabia, was educated at a school with a well known hatred for the West and the USA. The supposed "vetting" that she should have went through simply was a check on a form, and the DHS/ICE are not allowed to check social media where they would have found her anti-west postings and followings. She was radicalized before she got here, and he turned that way before meeting her. So he did want to do something about part of the problem, but as I said the press and others simply called him a racist for what he was proposing.

    Lest we forget, Ronald Regan skipped the last Republican debate before the Iowa caucuses back in 1980 and he came out of it fine.

    but doesn't it make more sense to focus the blame on corporations that create a system that necessitates labor at slave wages? Because I can tell you, they're profiting big time from this system while American workers and immigrants are just getting by.

    MrBurn: I agree 100% on this and so far, the only candidate who is really saying anything about that is Trump. You may not like his style but honestly, I am tired of the "smooth talking" politician who tells you everything you want to hear. Cruz had a chance to vote against the latest TPP and he didn't.

    Not just the low end jobs, but the recent actions by companies like Disney in hiring tech workers on H1B visas, having the US tech employees train them and then firing the US employees and having the H1B tech workers from India go back and do the job at a lot lower price is but another example. One could go on and on in each industry and show examples of big businesses and lobbyist using our so called elected officials to get these laws passed. Part of the reason of the popularity of Trump. Compared to Sanders or Hillary who promise the government will do everything, Trump is saying the government will do things, but they will be done to get businesses to come back to America and start producing goods here vice in some other country.

    I don't believe that all illegal immigrants will go on to commit all manner of other crimes simply because they broke one law to enter the country. That's just really poor logic.

    @ MrBurn: The fact that they broke the laws coming into America or overstaying their visas makes them a criminal, according to the US law. Will some go ahead and commit more crimes, maybe yes or no. but the bottom line is, they are still criminals under the current laws, and if they were ever brought into the criminal justice system they would have to answer for them.

    You can criticize the system, but there's no reason to blame immigrants who do the hard work that Americans don't want, at wages that allow Americans to eat affordably.

    Again we get the same argument that they do jobs Americans want to keep the cost of food down. Well, those illegals that people in my home town hire to do construction work on houses undercutting US tradesmen are not working on the farms but taking jobs that used to be done by US workers. As far as the agribusiness goes, my relatives used to do those jobs (I am Black and from the south), and they are what got my parents through school and put extra money in their pockets. Now those jobs that they used to be able to do and get extra money are no longer being offered to them since there is a steady flood of people willing to do so much cheaper than my relatives.

    As far as keeping the cost of food low, it has more to do with government subsidies rather than someone picking apples by hand. Again, my relatives used to work in the poultry business and now they can't get the jobs. Do a quick search about a meat processing plant raid a few years ago when ICE came and rounded up the illegals, and the long lines of people who were there the next day filling out applications to work. People will do the jobs they just have to be able to have them offered to them.

    but see nothing wrong in you branding people criminals according to their DNA,

    @ cleo: Being an illegal immigrant from Mexico or any other country is not related to DNA. Simply they broke the law going to a place that they shouldn't. Correct me if I am wrong, but you are not a Japanese citizen if I am correct. So do you think you have the "right" to just go to Japan, or any other country you want to just because you "feel" like moving there without meeting their entry requirements? You seem like a rational person so if you so that people should just be able to go and please as they wish then as you so desire and have pointed out, we should just ban all guns because if I use your logic, if people can't be expected to respect the borders and laws of another sovereign country, then why should they worry if something like guns are outlawed since they feel that they have a "right" to bear arms.

    I think Trump will come out ahead on this one. I suspect for the first round of questions the candidates will make quips about him not being there and do they want someone like that to lead the country, and there will be applause and boos in the crowd. But the more they bring up his absence, the more press he will get.

    I believe the J-Gov has done so in the past so why do these ladies need the current PM to do so? Are they going to require every sitting PM after him until they die off to offer an apology. Having read a few books on this subject, though I understand their plight during the war, and I do feel sympathy for them, but they also need to point a finger right back at the post war Korean governments as well. Since they viewed these women with contempt as compared to the rest of the "good women" of Korean society just as they viewed the women who had to work outside the US bases set up after the war in the camp towns that boomed there. The treatment those women suffered by their own in regards to the shame they were forced to feel, even though they were providing badly needed foreign currency through their work, just like the "pan-pan" girls in post war Japan did to the GIs in Japan. They looked down on their work, but delighted in the money they brought in. Time for both governments to acknowledge this in my opinion.

    The 'Hollywood industry' that is doing the 'bashing' is the actors and actresses. They aren't the ones who do the casting for movies for the most part. So the two groups you are equating, are not the same group.

    But they are the same. It is the ones behind the scenes in the industry that decide what actors to back. Why is it that if an actor declares to be a conservative, all of a sudden they don't get the big roles that they used to and get ostracized by the rest of the actors. These same behind the scenes people are the ones who the big Dem candidates fly out to Hollywood for to attend fundraisers. Sure some A list actor/actress will be the "host" but whom are they hosting? The big money studio and entertainment execs who will donate as much as they can to their political candidates who express their views. When was the last time you have heard of a big Hollywood donation event for a conservative in the news?

    Actors/actresses for the most part know that for them to keep getting the jobs, they will go along. Notice some of the response to Will and Jada Smith's boycott. Some of the Black blogs and media are saying not so fast, what about the rest of the ones who are not in their position to make such calls and need to get chances to make films and finance movies and haven't won an Oscar to be able to be in the forefront to make such a call. There are some who do not go along with this plan.

    Their composition should be similar to US demographics so that it's representative of the movie-watching audience.

    @ lostrune2: It will not be like that simply because the proportion of demographics in the industry is made up of white males and does not reflect the general population. Funny how it is this very same "Hollywood industry" that is bashing America as being too racist, all the GOP and other non-Democratic party affiliations as being racist or homophobic, and yet when the curtain is pulled back look what we see? A closed off group of similar people who are dictating what we should like and dislike.

    Don't think it s a good move to have "diversity" amount of awards. If a movie is good, then it should be able to stand on it's own. The only thing I would recommend is that those movies that may be produced or have minority actors in them are given the chance to be voted on, and if they cut it then they should be nominated. If not, and they are truly bad pieces of work, then they lose.

    @ Yubaru that is a good idea, but it will probably not happen based on the Japanese belief in "blood relations." But it is good that they are willing to pay for this treatment since the birth rates in Japan are steadily declining.
