A New Tupac Movie About His Final Days Is In The Works PDF Print E-mail
Written by CHET MANLEY   
Tuesday, 19 May 2015 22:39

It seems like only a month ago that John Singleton quit one Tupac biopic while promising to work on a different, “more respectful” project. There’s now word of another film, 7 Dayz, from director and Pac confidant Gobi M. Rahimi. Unlike the other projects, this film would focus on the seven days Rahimi spent with Shakur while the rapper was comatose before passing.


Rahimi – who helmed the music videos for “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” among others – wants to raise $300,000 to prevent his movie, 7 Dayz, “from becoming another watered down Hollywood film,” according to the project’s IndieGogo page. The feature film will also incorporate rare, actual footage of the rapper.


Rahimi, who claims to have penned a letter for Shakur in which he fired Suge Knight, wrote on the website that since he bore witness to the rapper’s final days, he owed it to Tupac and the world to tell the story now, nearly two decades after the rapper’s death.


As Rahimi says in the video: “This isn’t a documentary. It’s not a hologram and it’s not a repurposed album. This is my experience; my story.” This is an interesting take, and I’m all for any excuse to watch unreleased Pac footage. I just hope that letter to Knight doesn’t reignite that “Suge shot me” theory.


You can support the project through Rahimi’s Indiegogo page.

Floyd Mayweather Is Putting Up $10 Million For Suge Knight's Bail PDF Print E-mail

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is getting ready for his massive fight with Manny Pacquiao this weekend but in the meantime, he plans to help out his friend, Suge Knight, once its over. Knight's lawyer just revealed to the New York Daily News that after Floyd handles business this weekend he's going to come back to California and put up Knight's bail, which is currently set at $10 million.

Knight is currently in jail on murder and attempted murder charges following a hit-and-run incident that left Terry Carter dead. Earlier today, Knight pled not guilty to the charges and a judge denied a request to lower his bail from $10 million to $5 million. Whether Floyd actually posts Knight's $10 million bail next week remains to be seen, but in the above video, Knight's lawyer seems very confident. Mayweather does have a net worth of $280 million—and it's being reported that he will make an additional $120 million by fighting Pacquiao on May 2. We will continue to update this story as more details emerge.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, key members of Floyd's "Money Team" said that they will not be posting Suge's bail. The post also says that Floyd and Suge haven't been close in years, though they used to be friends.

Will Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush Serve Rightful Landowners Or Oil Companies PDF Print E-mail

Will Texas Land Commissioner via George P. Bush Fix Cisnero Family Land Disputes?

 

Alex Ruiz, a/k/a David Alejandro Ruiz has been getting the Texas runaround with regard to land his family owns.  This is not your ordinary land grant issue …. nay, this story has to do with the Cisnero family who has possession of the land title deed.

Ruiz reached out to George P. Bush who is now the head of the Texas General Land Office to no avail, so when the time comes for the Republican National Committee or the GOP to reach out to “Hispanic / Latino” voters come 2016 with George P. Bush as the brown pawn — we will be right here to remind Chicanos and Latinos how George P. Bush dropped the ball as Texas Land Commissioner when an influential Texas family member sought professional public servant advice.

Ruiz also contacted Senator John Cornyn’s office with regard to the land title his family owns dating back to 1792.  Sen. Cornyn’s office pointed Ruiz to the General Land Office — getting more bureaucracy.

Ruiz has been persistent and has been following the land sale(s) that rightfully belong to the Cisnero family.  Recently Texas House Bill 724 eventually led nowhere during the 84TH Legislative Session but we now have on record an elitist attorney for Kennedy and Kleberg Estates who is on record for stating the original land and deed holders “do not exist”.    (Video being uploaded and we will continue to follow this story with more and updated information.)

Members of the Cisnero family want to know how to hold Texas oil companies accountable for the mineral rights that rightfully belong to them.

Last year, Mr. Ruiz gave a letter to a CIA agent (to give to President Barack Obama) when he and other members of Chingon played for the President.  However, we do not believe the Secret Service agent ensured the letter was given to President Obama and we are now following up on the letter.  The letter was hand delivered to a Secret Service Agent on July 9, 2014 at a Democratic Fundraising Party when Ruiz and Chingon band members performed at.

Ruiz wrote:

 

July 9, 2014

Dear President Obama,

It gives me great pleasure to be the first in my family to meet, greet and sing for you. My name is David A. Ruiz. I am the lead singer for Robert Rodriguez’ band, Chingon.

 

I have been a supporter of yours throughout your administration. I know you are an answer to many prayers whispered throughout American History. I have seen your struggles within the House and want you to know that you are not alone. You have awakened The Nation.

 

I am writing this letter also as a way to reach Washington in a much needed time for South Texas Pioneer Families, who have been afflicted by criminal activities with no help from the Texas government system. We are engaged in a long series of disputes with the State of Texas and General Land Office, Comptroller’s Office, and Railroad Commission dating back to Civil War times, when Texas was just joining the Union.

 

We have proof of crimes and grand theft over lands and livestock and now minerals from certain families. These families and Texas still have control over these lands to this day. We are asking for justice to be served and for Texas to withhold the Rule of Law which we feel has been one sided throughout Texas History.

 

We are currently involved in a referendum with Texas House Bill 724. In this Bill there are hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars being allocated to the State and its departments in which we have known for a long time have belonged to these families I speak of. These monies get allocated and dispersed to a long list of personnel and it is the monies we here in Texas call “Dark Monies”. Unfortunately, a system of government infected with corruption and ruthless ambition and greed.

 

With violations of territorial integrity and a history of intimidation and unethical means by people in power here in the Texas system this has become an endemic problem within the US boundaries. We seek the immediate assistance of Washington or any World Court that could help us with these corruptions and inefficiencies. We need to hold those accountable for their actions that have wronged the families of the pioneers of Texas.

 

We are respectfully asking you to lead us through this dark valley. We need the US Department of Justice to see that our people who hold titles and have precedence are still protected by the US treaties of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which President Lincoln signed, and The Adams Onis Treaty of 1819, which protects the rights and lands of our Spanish Pioneer families against hostile take overs and grandfather clauses.

 

Would you please help us in our cause to redirect Texas Government for the people and by the people.

To conclude with a quote from President Harry S. Truman: “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.”

 

God Speed Mr. President, we send our love and prayers for you and your family. As is practiced in South Texas: Mi casa humilde es su casa.

 

If you would like more information or to speak with me about this matter, please feel free to contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

 

Sincerely,

 

Semper Fidelis

Geraldo confronted about Fox News coverage of Baltimore PDF Print E-mail

Protester confronts Geraldo Rivera at Baltimore protest"Don't walk away, just listen to me. Talk to me."

A protester in West Baltimore confronted Geraldo Rivera last night before he went to his live shot for Fox News. He went OFF on Geraldo, asking where were you before this?

Protester: You want to report that we're thugs and we're breaking shit down. You got these two black dudes protecting you (talking about Geraldo's bodyguards) from all these black folks. We're the ones that need protection! Report for us! You're working for Fox News. Adam Jackson just went on Sean Hannity....(Geraldo tries to get away) Why are you running away? Talk to me. Just talk to me. Listen, a black man can raise his voice and you don't have to be intimidated. (Geraldo mumbles something) Because I want you and Fox News to get out of Baltimore City. Because you are not here reporting about the boarded up homes and the homeless people on the MLK. You're not reporting about the poverty levels up and down North Avenue. Two years ago, when the 300 man march and we marched (street names), you weren't here. You're here for the black riots! You're not here for the death of Freddie Gray.

The unidentified protester then began saying he wanted to talk to Geraldo and pleaded for the cameras to be turned off before continuing:

I want the white media out of Baltimore City until you are here to report the real story.

His takedown of Geraldo and the media continued. Watch him passionately confront Geraldo Rivera to tell the real story:

Racial Struggles: Super Rami Muth Spends On Pricey Law Firm Rather Than A/C For Kids and FOIA PDF Print E-mail
Written by DD   
Friday, 17 April 2015 16:20

 

We have been keeping our readers informed with regard to North California Schools Showing Ugly Discriminatory Pattern: Denise Elsken’s No A/C Idea Is Likened to Superintendent Joe Jaconette Denying Free Lunch to Brown Little Girl.

To date, we still have not received an apology from Martinez Unified School District (MUSD) Superintendent Rami Muth and we believe that demonstrates weak leadership on her part -- particularly when Joe Jaconette apologized for his behavior for hiring an investigator to chase a little brown girl and denying her the free lunch school program. More importantly, we noticed Muth did not take calls from the community and was missing in action during the middle of the controversy.

We now see Ms. Muth wasting time and  resources on pricey law firms such as Dannis Woliver & Kelley Law Office, rather than putting those monetary resources towards giving brown kids air conditioning.  Our coalition exercised our right to make a simple Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) Records request to no immediate avail – just more delay and bureaucracy when we made "when we made a request for all e-mails  to and from for Denise Elsken from January 1, 2012 through present, and all emails to and from John L. Fuller, President from January 1, 2012 through present. MUSD should know time is of the essence, as we are entering the hot season, and we have documented complaints from the children at La Junta school (a school that is not in an affluent area) that continue to be ignored.

Apologies made by school board member(s) were not heartfelt. We have made FOIA request before and similar state organizations have complied with us in a timely fashion when we make FOIA requests with them.  Muth's delay only angers those involved in the situation, and any reasonable person with computer savvy understands understands how easy it is to obtain emails. We hope the Martinez Unified School District does not scrub their email written correspondence history.

Finally, since Superintendent Rami Muth and MUSD are delaying our simple FOIA request, we have no alternative but to tell parents of La Junta to make complaints to Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). We urge La Junta Parents to make a confidential complaint to OSHA forthwith and they can be reached at: 1-800-321-OSHA (6742).

It is our mission to ensure our Chicano and Latino children get the same quality of education affluent schools receive, and we are hell bent to this regard. Perhaps these northern California schools think we are just a bunch of stupid Mexicans -- but we can assure them that we are not and this is not our first rodeo with regard to confronting bigotry head on.  Continued delays will only further our righteous anger.
