CELEBRITY SPY NETWORK: (NEW & OLD)
Tip's new strip club "V Live," will be serious competition for "Magic City." Nearly 2,000 local and out of town strippers descended on the ATL to audtion for Tip. T.I. has the star power to attract celebrities and powerbrokers from all over the world.
by: Devin Friedman
To call it a mere strip club means you don't get it. It's more like hip-hop's ultimate proving ground—a legendary hive of hustlers and dreamers. "Magic City," is a place where fortunes rain from the rafters, where women with impossible bodies call the shots, and where a DJ who spins your track can make you a star.
Magic City gets the Who's Who of the streets. You can have Young Thug, Future, 2 Chainz in here on the same night. On any given night, you have dope boys who want to be rappers; rappers who pretend to be dope boys; and dope boys who just want to be dope boys.
Before T.I. opened his own strip club, he would patronize Magic City where he was known to bring his own backpack full of hundred dollar bills to throw.
On one particular night, there was a young NFL player in the back, quietly bursting out of a white Henley while showering two dancers with cash. Magic City had $80,000 in singles in a basement safe for people to "order up" and throw—on strippers, near strippers, on the floor—and the club will go through all of it tonight and have to begin recycling those singles, taking them down to the basement to be processed by two guys with money-counting machines under fluorescent lights.
On the bigger nights at Magic City, you can find Magic patrolling the room in a taupe suit, parting the clouds of hookah smoke with a wineglass in his fist. His trim hair going gray, his lantern jaw set. He played football on scholarship at Duke and at age 60 still has the bearing of a man who knows he's physically more powerful than other people. He is called Big Mag, pronounced "big maj" (Lil Magic is his son), and he is an elder statesman of the street. Atlanta is balkanized—you might not be welcome in Bankhead if you're not from there. But as the proprietor of Magic City, as a man who has, in his parlance, been running around in the streets for thirty years, it's different for Magic. He can pass safely into any zone he likes; he can talk to almost anyone like family. "I've got a green card," he says. "You might be a dope boy or a producer or a famous rapper or a finesser or a millionaire or a thug, but it wouldn't take me a couple of phone calls to get your mama or your uncle or your people on the phone."
Magic, with his lieutenants Wolf and Charles Walker, has been running Magic City for three decades—with an eight-year hiatus when he was in federal prison on a drug charge. Wolf, the fixer, the back-of-the-house guy whom you can usually find in the basement office with his bifocals fastened to the top of his bald head, so hairless I could not detect the presence even of eyebrows. In the front of the house: Charles Walker, the Silver Fox, widely acknowledged to be the smoothest 67-year-old in Fulton County. Soft close-cropped silver hair brushed into waves, pressed pinstriped suit and well-knotted tie. He works in, I guess you could call it, stripper relations, and he keeps up a steady patter with basically every woman who walks into Magic City, employed there or not.
Magic's club is not fancy. It has a simple stage, a bar with some coolers behind it, a kitchen at the front that turns out hot wings and chicken and rice in Styrofoam boxes. There's no gilt, no crystal, no $40,000 mirrors cut in the shape of a bosom. There are no private rooms. Because private rooms violate the primary purpose of Magic City, which is to be seen. "It's a hype place," Big Mag says. "It's not a sex place. A sex place wouldn't bring anything but trouble, plus I wouldn't get any of the money for that sex, either."
Atlanta gets referred to frequently as Black Hollywood. It is, like Los Angeles and New York, a city in which no small number of celebrities feel it is important to maintain a presence. You're as likely to find Kanye in Atlanta as anywhere else; Kevin Hart celebrated his engagement at Magic City; Rick Ross just bought the old Evander Holyfield twelve-bedroom mansion down in Fayetteville. Atlanta is, especially, the de facto center of the hip-hop industry, and it is Magic City—and the small number of strip clubs like it—that operates as the underground linchpin of that industry. If hip-hop were Silicon Valley, Magic City would be the place venture capitalists would loiter, looking for talent. "Ninety-nine percent of the time, the first place you ever heard a song is Magic City," said DJ Esco, who, when it comes to music, pretty much controls Magic City.
"Everybody who's big in the strip club?" J-Nicks, the FM radio host, said. "They break out of the strip club."
"If you want to make it in Atlanta," the producer TM88 said, "you need to live in Magic City."
Consider the rapper Future. Not five years ago, Future was virtually unknown. He used to hang out at Magic City every week, back near the DJ booth. Esco started playing Future's music. Esco started playing his music a lot. Eventually Future started to dominate Magic City. And when he started dominating Magic City, suddenly he was played on the radio; suddenly he signed a major record deal.
But at the same time, Big Mag wants no velvet ropes in Magic City, because the point here is not to separate by class. "It's gumbo in there," Esco told me.
"You can see actresses, musicians, a weed man, a killer, probably a police officer. You can find anybody in Magic City, anybody." It's a place where part of the clientele can fantasize that they're still street while a different part of the clientele can fantasize that they're not. I can't think of another place in America where the one percent stand unprotected next to so many other percents at the bar.
Magic was born Michael Barney in the ghetto metropolis of Camden, New Jersey. He began working as a salesman in Atlanta in the 1980s. "I was selling printer cartridges over the phone," he says. "It was a scam." He was so good that his co-workers called him Magic. Magic worked on commission, and once he had some of that money in his pockets, he says, he liked to "run around in the streets." It was then—circa early 1980s—that he happened upon a black strip club called Foxy Lady.
"It was rough. It was one of those kind of motorcycle clubs. But I fell in love with strip right then."
What was it you fell in love with?
"I was just amazed at the atmosphere. It was the first time I ever experienced strip down here in the South. I didn't know you could get naked like that."
They can, indeed, get nakeder down here than they can in many places. Strippers can be fully nude in Atlanta. And in places like Magic City, you're encouraged to be creative with your nudity. Lil Magic says, "They don't just get naked here, they get asshole-naked. You could tell me to get naked standing in this room and I might do it. Then you'd tell me to bend over? Nope." Big Magic took notes. He ran some calculations about alcohol revenues and door take. And he saw an opportunity. "Like I said, the girls were rough in there. But I wondered: What if you had some pretty girls in the club? What the hell could happen then?"
He opened Magic City in 1985 with a single dancer. But a single dancer with, as he says it, a perfect balloon butt.
"It was right when Deion [Sanders] and Dominique [Wilkins] came to Atlanta, that's when it all started," Big Mag says. "It was '89, '90. Michael Irvin—we were all party animals; I started to know all the wild guys. Then they all started coming in here. And Deion brought me [MC] Hammer when he was hot. And now we were starting to get a whole lot of little guys like that, and they were starting to make their moves. I knew L. A. Reid back when he was married to Pebbles. TLC. Bobby Brown. Whitney. And of course Jermaine Dupri. He should be where Puffy at, but he didn't have that close-out finesse that Puffy had. And Magic City was the first club in Atlanta that made them feel comfortable. Michael Jordan wasn't hanging out in strip clubs until Magic City."
But it wasn't Jermaine Dupri or MC Hammer or Michael Jordan who made Magic City into what it is now. It was BMF. You've heard of BMF, right? Yes? No? Well, BMF is the greatest subject of street lore in the history of Atlanta. There are songs, books, documentaries, three-part journalistic investigations of BMF. In the early 2000s, BMF, which stands for Black Mafia Family, was a drug organization. It was, according to the DEA, one of the most notorious drug-trafficking organizations in America, with profits of $270 million over the course of its short life. A man named Big Meech was its mastermind and overlord. And Big Meech did not have a discreet management style. I'm pretty sure BMF is the only major drug-trafficking enterprise ever to rent a giant billboard on a major interstate to advertise itself; if you'd driven into Atlanta in 2004, you would have seen a sign that read the world is bmf's. Big Meech also fancied himself a music mogul and, at the height of its largesse, made BMF into a record label; he was known for his relationship with the rappers Young Jeezy, T.I., and a certain Bleu DaVinci, whom you can still find hanging around Atlanta.
What BMF really was—more than a drug-trafficking concern or a hip-hop label—was the biggest socio-cultural thing to happen to Atlanta since, probably, Gone with the Wind. What BMF really was, was a rap song come to life. You know the world that's depicted in rap videos? The rapper at the wheel of a $300,000 car getting dry-humped by fourteen strippers driven into a kind of involuntary ecstasy simply by his presence? Watching reams of American currency being lit on fire or blown away into the streets while he just smokes a cigar and barely notices because he's somehow achieved a new consciousness of wealth in which there is no dollar figure large enough the loss of which would be of any emotional consequence? That was how BMF lived for real, and they liked to live that way in public, and the principal way to interface with that public was through the strip club.
It was at Magic City where, in the early 2000s, you could experience most fully the world of BMF. At the apogee of their wealth and power, BMF would show up, order $100,000, throw it on the floor, and leave in forty-five minutes. This was the epoch, and the city, in which the concept of making it rain was born. Up until then, people were just putting money in garter belts. But that was not a sufficient expression of how little money meant to BMF. They had to throw it, fertilize the air with it like pollen. "BMF shut the club down," the radio host J-Nicks said to me. "It was strippers driving Bentleys and owning seven-bedroom houses." Just about everyone speaks of that era kind of wistfully, especially strippers, who are still happy to make $5,000 in a night but know there was a time when that number was more like $20,000.
"They was a little brutal back in the BMF," the dancer Aimee told me. "They would have joy slapping the girls in the face with the money. You get sucker punched in the face with a thousand dollars, but you laugh it off because it's so much money."
Big Meech and most of the rest of BMF went to jail seven years ago. But Big Mag still sees his business as one that operates in a world where people like BMF are your clients. It took a long negotiation to get Big Mag to sit down to be interviewed. It is not something he'd ever done before. Big Mag still sees himself as a denizen of what no small number of people described to me as a secret society. Magic City operates as a part of its own economy; as Lil Magic says, "The way some of these people throw money, you know it probably didn't come in check form." And Big Mag, not to mention the strippers and the hustlers, not to mention the doctors and the lawyers and the members of the Atlanta Falcons, all see Magic City belonging to a shadow side of the city.
Stripper Amiee has a savings account. She carries a book with her at all times called "Think and Grow Rich," by Napoleon Hill. She tells me she's entrepreneurial. The many moments of degradation are made more tolerable because she’s telling herself a different story about them. "I'm not just picking up singles off the floor. You think I'm just picking up singles off the floor when there's real money out there?"
So where does that real money come in?
"I have my sponsors."
Sponsors? "They call it a situationship—I can't really call them boyfriends. I don't claim my boyfriends, because they're not claimable. They take care of me."
And who are your sponsors?
"A rapper, a professional athlete, another one who says he's a rapper, but he's probably a dope boy. If I feel overworked and underpaid, I'll invoice them!" Aimee said.
Power In A Name:
Two of the most successful and richest rap moguls in U.S. history, share another common trait, they have the same first name: Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z and Sean Combs aka Diddy.
Naomi Sims (left) was the first black Supermodel. Years later, Naomi Cambpell would emerge and take modeling to another level. Is it a coincidence that these two dynamic women share the same first name and dominated the same industry in different era's?
Both women would also head empires: Naomi Sims (haircare, and books) Naomi Campbell (perfumes).
By 1972, Hollywood took an interest in Naomi Campbell as a potential actress and offered her the title role in the movie "Cleopatra Jones," but when Sims read the script, she was appalled by the racist portrayal of blacks in the movie and turned it down. Sims ultimately decided to go into the beauty business for herself. Sims retired from modeling in 1973 to start her own business which created a successful wig collection fashioned after the texture of straightened black hair. It eventually expanded "into a multimillion-dollar beauty empire and at least five books on modeling and beauty."
She authored several books on modeling, health, and beauty, including All About Health and Beauty for the Black Woman, How to Be a Top Model and All About Success for the Black Woman, as well as an advice column for teenage girls in Right On! magazine.
Naomi Sims died of breast cancer in 2009.
Since 1999, Naomi Campbell has released sixteen fragrances for women via her eponymous perfume house, under the Procter & Gamble brand.
John H. Johnson launched Ebony and Jet magazines with a $500 dollar loan. This family owned empire made Johnson a multi-millionaire and was sold last week.
George E. Johnson, Sr. was the owner of Johnson Products (black hair products) and he and John H. Johnson share the same surname.
George E. Johnson, Sr. and his wife, Joan (Henderson) Johnson, started the company with only $500 like John H. Johnson.
Unlike earlier African American cosmetics firms which targeted women, Johnson developed his first products exclusively for male customers. Johnson Products first success was Ultra Wave Hair Culture, which was a hair relaxer for men. In 1957, Johnson Products released a new hair straightener specifically for women called Ultra Sheen which, unique among such products, could be applied at home. Soon Ultra Sheen surpassed Ultra Wave in sales and popularity. In 1964, Johnson founded Independence Bank in Chicago which by the 1980s had become the largest black-owned bank in the United States. Independence Bank was sold in 1994. Also in the late 1960s, sensing the growing popularity of "Afro" style hair with the rise of Black Power as a political philosophy, Johnson developed its most famous product, Afro Sheen. By the late 1960s Johnson Products became the principal sponsor of the national television dance show, Soul Train. With markets in Africa, the West Indies, and Latin America by the early 1970s, Johnson Products Company had become the largest African American owned corporation in the United States. In 1971 Johnson Products Company became the first African American owned corporation listed on the American Stock Exchange.

Barry White's widow Gloadean hosted a listening party at Barry's mansion. The party showcased Barry and Glodean's daughter Shay,'s vocal abilities. Shay is an aspiring singer. The party was attended by old school elite: Freda and Sherri Payne, Elgin Charles, Val Young, Patrice Rushen and one of the Gordy sisters. Shay is an amazing vocalist.
El Debarge was scheduled to perform in the bay area but due to "unspecified reasons" he cancelled.
Before they worked together. Dorothy Dandridge realized she was very attracted to Harry Belafonte but the feeling wasn't mutual. She waited 2 hours for him to arrive for an arranged date set up by a talent agent. Despite Dandridge being one of the most beautiful women in the world, he seemed disinterested the entire time and she got the impression-he has to be (the only star) in his relationships.
They would later have a good working and professional relationship.
in April of 1994. Eartha Kitt described a sexual encounter with Harry Belafonte. Immediately afterward, he allegedly warned Kitt ‘not to take their lovemaking too seriously’ on the grounds that his sexual interest was exclusively in white women. He added, “No black woman can do anything for me.”
The interviewer pressed for further details as follows.
Interviewer: Belafonte said that to you? Kitt: Yes. It was a slap in my face and therefore, you feel kind of dirty afterwards, you know. Interviewer: Why do you think Belafonte said that? Kitt: Because that’s Harry Belafonte. Interviewer: Really? Kitt: That’s the way he is.
by: Steven Winn
In the 1950's, Belafonte was offered the plum title role in the film version of "Porgy and Bess," Belafonte turned the role down.
Belafonte says: "Dubose Heyward, who wrote the book, was very much a racist with family ties to the Ku Klux Klan. Porgy is on his knees and has no backbone, Sportin Life is a pimp and a hustler."
Branded a Communist fronter, Belafonte was blacklisted in the McCarthy period. Instead of bowing to establishment values, he took them on.
Belafonte recalls meeting Ed Sullivan at the Delmonico Hotel to be vetted as a possible guest on the his TV show. Sullivan read him a list of allegations.
"I said it was all true," Belafonte recalled and how much more he'd missed."
Belafonte reminded Sullivan that his own Irish ancestors were victims of prejudice.
Several hours later, he got the call from Sullivan inviting him on the show.
Belafonte would later praise actress Joan Fontaine for challenging the system of race and paying a terrible price with her career when she agreed to play his love interest in the 1957 film "Island In The Sun."
According to Jan Gaye:
It broke my heart when, instead of me, Marvin asked Anna to accompany him to the shooting of the "Sexual Healing," video. I didn't expect to be invited, but neither did I envision any kind of reconciliation between Marvin and his first wife.
One day, Marvin came to Hermosa Beach to see the kids. He took us for a ride in his car and said he wanted to play us a song he'd been working on. He was calling it "Sanctified P*ssy."
I didn't want to hear it and I didn't want the kids to hear it. I told him if he put it on, I was taking the children and getting out of the car.
He backed off but started driving erratically, frightening Nona and Frankie.
When he finally calmed down, he said, "I'm singing at the NBA All-Star Game tomorrow night at the Forum. I've worked up a funky rendition of the national anthem that will be special, but I'm in no shape to perform. I'm backing out."
"I'm asking Luther Vandross to sing it for me."
When Luther refused, Marvin changed his mind again and turned up at the game.
As I predicted, his performance was flawless.
There was controversy about the liberties he had taken with the rhythm and melody. He sang the song as gospel blues but his version would not soon be forgotten and would eventually be considered a classic.
Ten days later, Marvin was also saying that he would skip the Grammys. He had been nominated for "Sexual Healing."
He said, "They want me to sing "Sexual Healing," but why should I do anything for the Grammys? They didn't give me a Grammy for "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," they didn't give me one for "What's Going On," nor did they give me one for "Let's Get It On," or "I Want You." I've been turning out records for over twenty tears and still haven't gotten one of those little statues.
At the last minute, Marvin did get it together and took the children to the Grammys.
When he did win, Jan was ecstatic but also apprehensive about his televised meeting with her friend Rick James.
As it turned out, the men exhibited nothing but love.
Later Rick told Jan that Marvin whispered in his ear: "Take care of her."
50 Cent has no love for one-time friend Diddy and decided to air him out on Instagram. Fif resorted to his social media page to troll Puff Daddy and blame him for hurting ex-Bad Boy artists’ careers.
Yet Again: The state of NJ dropped a new lien on Mary J. Blige to the tune of $166,292.77.
This one’s way more manageable than her past tax debts. She settled a lien for $900,000 with Jersey in 2014, but appears to still be on the hook for a $3.4 million tab with the IRS.
Bottom line: The tax man’s keeping a close eye on Mary’s money.

Hate Crime: Wealthy Black Family’s $3.5 Million California Manson Firebombed After Arson Attack:
African Americans are still feeling the effects of seeds planted 100 years ago and apparently, still being nurtured. And just because you’re wealthy and black, don’t get it twisted: you don’t automatically get a pass.
This is being felt by a family in Manhattan Beach, a well-to-do suburb in Los Angeles, who has no doubt that a firebombing of their multi-million-dollar home was nothing less than a violent hate crime. And the damage far exceeds money as the family contemplates moving in order to remain safe.
The bombing caused over $200,000 worth of damage to their 3.5 million dollar home, and now Ron and Mallisia Clinton seek assistance from federal officials to determine the cause of the attack. The family of five, including three children and a dog, take the vicious attack very seriously.
But Manhattan Beach police refuse to comment on the incident aside from calling the blaze “suspicious” before referring further comments to the Fire Department, who told local media that the department is investigating it as a potential arson. No motive for the attack was discussed, the husband does refer to the possibility that his attorney wife may have been the inspiration behind the attack; which took place when a burning tire was left at the family’s front door.
The Trump Campaign has apparently raised an astounding $11 Million in the past 2 days.

SHADOWY: (RIDE-SHARING CONNECTED TO THE UNDERWORLD)
by: Luis Chapparo
According to Luis Chapparo: Alberto is not a drug dealer, an illegal firearms seller, or a document forger. He’s a fortysomething Uber driver in Mexico City who just so happens to have those connections.
I first met Alberto last year on an Uber ride from Coyoacan to Mexico City, where I live. He and I made small talk as we rode along in his car, which is registered to him and used for Uber fares. At some point, I joked about how I wished I had a doctor’s degree. That way, I could make more money than I do as a journalist.
“Well,” Alberto replied, arriving at my destination. “I can help you get one.”
I’ve thought about it ever since. Having made zero contact with Alberto for a year, I decided to call him up. What did he mean when he said he could help me get what I only assumed was a counterfeit doctor’s degree?
As it turned out, he would show me. Alberto, my Uber driver, would be my line to a hidden side of Mexico City, one of the largest cities in the world to legally authorize the ride-hailing app.
As Uber drivers come from diverse backgrounds, some of them inevitably happen to already be plugged into the criminal underworld, according to Alberto, whose crisp hairdo is a holdover from a previous life in the Mexican military.
These sorts of drivers are primed to double as middlemen between passengers and the capital city’s black markets. And their networks of contacts can earn them extra cash on the side, as passengers often must tip drivers for making the appropriate connection, be it for drugs, illegal “never used” firearms, or forged passports and college diplomas.
Of course, I wouldn’t actually make a transaction. But with Alberto as my guide, I’d Uber my way to a clandestine shop inside Mexico City’s black market for counterfeit documents for a glimpse of how the process works.
Alberto picked me up at my apartment in middle-class Colonia Escandon. Destination: Tepito, one of the sketchiest neighborhoods in the capital city, where we would meet Raúl, a fake documents dealer. Trip fare was around 60 pesos ($4) and I had to tip Alberto 1000 pesos ($60) for his contacts and for covering my ass in Tepito.
These sorts of tips go unregistered for Uber. On the app, the ride showed as any other ride would within Mexico City.
Since pre-Hispanic times, Tepito’s economy has been linked to the traditional open-air markets called tianguis. The locals refer to Tepito as the Barrio Bravo, the fierce neighborhood, for its reputation of criminality involving counterfeit goods, robbery, and drug selling.
Alberto called Raúl* once we were inside a certain vecindario, a historic neighborhood surrounded by small apartments. Raúl is a squat man with dark, short hair, and a childish voice, and before long we were being led by him to his secret shop of forged documents.
As far as I can tell, Alberto and Raúl have had this arrangement going for a couple years now and the two of them first met before Alberto started driving for Uber. They cater to locals like myself but Alberto said he’s previously linked Raúl with Central American families in need of passports and even American passengers looking to procure false Mexican IDs.
“I’ve never had a problem,” Alberto said.
Both of them claimed they don’t do this work for the cartels, which have diversified portfolios beyond just narcotics. Raúl mentioned that some traditional taxi drivers in Mexico City serve as coyotes—low-level cartel lookouts—and that organized crime syndicates pay these driver-scouts commissions for bringing in clients.
“We also use coyotes in the streets, but they face a bigger risk of being caught, so the Uber drivers are perfect coyotes,” laughed Raúl, slapping Alberto on the back.
For his part, Alberto gave no indication of how many Uber drivers out there are like him. Raúl claimed there are “hundreds” of Uber drivers who connect passengers to the Mexico City’s illegal economies and that the Uber coyotes are simply more opportunistic than traditional taxi coyotes. He said taxi coyotes will ask riders “what do you need” or “what are you looking for” as if to suggest they’re timid compared to charismatic Uber drivers, who apparently chat up passengers at every opportunity.
Uber’s Latin American office could not be reached despite multiple requests for comment.
RAE CARRUTH PLAYBOOK LEADS TO ATTEMPTED MURDER:
Heartless Andres Marrero (3rd photo) punched and kicked a three-months-pregnant teen in the belly in an attempt to make her miscarry-and then shamefully boasted about the vicious attack on Facebook (below).
"Damn, last night was fun as hell and I'm paid," the 19-year-old University Tampa student reportedly wrote on the website.
Incredibly, Marrero was hired to beat the girl by her boyfriend and father of the unborn child.
Devin Nickels (2nd photo) was an 18-year-old Florida State student.
He wanted to get rid of the baby and masterminded the plot.
Nickels reportedly paid Marrero to snatch the girl and beat her so ferociously that she'd miscarry.
Nickels and his girlfriend were in an apartment complex parking area when a masked and gun wielding Marrero came up, pointed the weapon at her and threatened to shoot.
He forced the terrified girl into a nearby wooded area where he began to viciously punch and kick her in the stomach, say cops.
When the girl begged him to stop, explaining that she was pregnant, cops say he cruelly continued, telling her: "That's how much I care, bitch!"
Fortunately, the attack failed. Sources say the girl was hospitalized and she and the unborn baby are OK.
Her attacker Marrero was arrested after she identified him from photos shown by detectives. He's charged with kidnapping and aggravated battery on a pregnant female, and was jailed on $60,000 bond.
Her boyfriend Nickels was also locked up and charged with solicitation to commit aggravated battery with a bond set at $50,000.
A Florida State University student accused of planning an attack on his pregnant girlfriend now faces more charges (below):
Authorities said that 18-year-old Devin R. Nickels contacted another man about staging another (2ND) attack on a 17-year-old pregnant girl after a New Year's attack failed to fulfill his plan to kill the fetus.
Nickels was charged with an additional count of solicitation to commit aggravated battery on a pregnant woman. He is in the Land O'Lakes Jail with bail set at $50,000. Officials say the girl and unborn child are fine.
Officials say 19-year-old Andres Marrero alerted them to Nickels' second plan. Marrero, a University of Tampa student, faces armed kidnapping and aggravated battery on a pregnant female stemming from the Jan.1, attack.
The crime occurred in 2011 yet Nickels is scheduled to be released in February of 2017.
Retired Navy commander pilot Graham Bethune held a top-secret clearance.
He was a VIP Plane Commander who flew most of the high-ranking officers and civilians from Washington, DC.
In his testimony below, he explains how he was flying a group of VIPs and other pilots into Argentia, Newfoundland, when every single person on the plane witnessed a 300 foot object that traveled 10,000 feet straight up in a fraction of a second toward their plane.
We saw different colors as it was coming toward us. The colors were around the perimeter. And it turned from a yellow to an orange to almost a fiery red and then almost a purplish-red. That had to do with the amount of energy being used or dissipated. It had to do with the power settings. When it slowed down, close to us, in a fraction of a second, it was yellow. And fog surrounded it with a plasma mist.
On the flight line, where we parked the planes, most of the time, we weren’t too far from what looked like a hangar.
Every time my boss and I went by there, he could not understand why I was not interested in seeing what was behind the metal wall.
Later, he would tell me that an unusual craft with bodies were behind the wall.
BLACK HISTORY TIDBIT:
Addison Scurlock (June 19, 1883 - December 16, 1964) was a Washington DC photographer whose subjects included Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois, and former first lady Mamie Eisenhower.
He documented local events, including Marian Anderson singing in front of the Lincoln Memorial in 1939. Many of his photographs are now part of the Smithsonian archives.
His sons Robert and George operated a photography school whose students included Jacqueline Bouvier (future First Lady).
A new documentary (Tear The Roof Off) on group "Parliament Funkadelic" has been released and it paints George Clinton in less than glowing colors.
Award winning documentarian Bobby J. Brown uncovered numerous secrets of Hall of Fame band Parliament Funkadelic.
Members open up about the unorthodox methods they were paid, heavily exploited, and the creativity behind this unique genre of music.
This is the untold story of the rise and fall of the greatest funk band ever.
George Clinton says: "I don't know anything about it, but I heard about it."
Informed that there's a strong element of negative testimony, he responds, "It's someone trying to stop this momentum we got going."
Clinton adds: "I'm over drugs, I don't even take pain medication."
The giant sci fi "Mothership" prop, which opened stage shows for P-Funk 40 years ago, is to be berthed at the Smithsonian museum.
At 75, Clinton still alleges that a music publishing firmer forged documents to deprive him of his rights to financial benefits of his creation and to restrict his sharing his material with other musicians.
The film is 60 minutes in length.
Here's the trailer: "Tear The Roof Off!"
BLIND ITEM: (ANONYMOUS SEX!)
Glory holes are aligned with anonymous sex in the gay community.
The majority of gay adult bookstores or sex shops have glory holes located in the back; gay parks have also been known to have glory holes in their bathrooms.
A man puts his aroused member through a hole and an anonymous man on the other side services him.
After the sex act is over, the two men never meet and go their separate ways.
A rich rap mogul allegedly had a construction crew sign a confidentiality agreement to construct "lower body-glory holes" on the grounds of his estate, in the basement.
The job was completed a few months ago.
And when the mogul is in town, his aide ushers in (bottoms) to be serviced.
Some of these bottoms are gay porn stars, male strippers and escorts who have had Brazilian butt shots to enhance their derriere's.
These men are instructed to lie face down or face up (naked) and to back the lower half of their body (backwards or forward) through the gigantic anal (glory) hole.
The mogul then performs anal sex on them with the wall blocking his identity.
When he's finished, he disappears upstairs.
Who is the mogul?
NEW EBOOK! (THINK AND GROW RICH):
You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.
Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.
The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic).
Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."
"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."
I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.
When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.
You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
