georgestraitawards01George Strait Gets Award at 2013 CMA Awards Winners, Full List

The 2013 CMA Awards winners earn respect and recognition from their fans and country music peers, plus a really cool, really heavy glass trophy to put on their mantel, tour bus or coffee table. Tim McGraw won two CMA’s before the 2013 broadcast even started on Nov. 6. His wins for Music Video and Musical Event of the Year were not surprising. ‘Highway Don’t Care’ was also up for Single of the Year.

Kacey Musgraves, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift had the most nominations going into the Nashville-based awards ceremony. Florida Georgia Line was also a favorite to leave needing a small moving truck to lug home trophies. Ultimately, it was George Strait and Blake Shelton who nabbed the night’s biggest awards. See the entire list below.

$1 Million Spent Blaming Republicans For Immigration

republicandemocratwomen01The New York Times Reports

On Wednesday, the AFL-CIO announced it would spend more than $1 million in five districts over the next two weeks on television ads that sharply blame Republicans for the lack of immigration action in the House.”

Nobody's listening to your calls...

Earlier this week, USA Today reported “Obama Renews Push for an Immigration Overhaul,” noting: “The business executives who attended Tuesday’s meeting with Obama included Roger Altman, founder and chairman of Evercore Partners; Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solution; Joe Echevarria, CEO of Deloitte; Marillyn Hewson, CEO and president of Lockheed Martin; Edward Rust, chairman and CEO of State Farm; Arne Sorenson, president and CEO of Marriott; Stephen Schwarzman, chairman and CEO of Blackstone; and Don Thompson, president and CEO of McDonalds.” MANUEL PÉREZ-ROCHA, (240) 838-6623,

    Associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, Pérez-Rocha said today: “The big question ‘What causes migration?’ is constantly missing in the immigration debate in the United States. That is, the push factors — or what is it that pushes millions of Mexicans and Central Americans to migrate? An important push factor is U.S. policy.

“The destruction of local economies and rural livelihoods by IMF and World Bank structural adjustment policies since the 80s and more recently by U.S.-led free trade agreements like NAFTA [North American Free Trade Agreement], as well as DR-CAFTA [Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement], is what forces so many workers to look for jobs, and get money to send back home to their impoverished families — not the search for the ever more elusive ‘American dream.’

“In Mexico the myth of a growing ‘middle class’ has been busted by official figures that indicate that most Mexicans are poor and belong to the working class. And while some applaud the recovery of Mexico’s manufacturing sector, this is due to the fact that Mexico’s wages are even lower than China’s. This may be beneficial for investors but it is detrimental to the Mexican worker, and ultimately migration to the U.S. may resume. One of the reasons why it has slowed down is the downturn of the U.S. economy, but if it picks up, the push for migration will resume.”

Note: NAFTA reaches its 20th anniversary on January 1, 2014.

Mandela Movie Screened at the White House

mandelaMandela movie to screen at the White House, “Oh Happy Day”

“It Is An Ideal For Which I Am Prepared To Kill Die” – Nelson Mandela


 Poster of Mandela: Long Walk to FreedomBREAKING NEWS: US President Barack Obama hosted a White House screening of South African producer Anant Singh’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom with cast members Idris Elba and Naomie Harris and Nelson Mandela’s daughters Zindzi and Zenani in attendance.

Harvey Weinstein, American film producer and studio executive, says: “Knowing what a strong relationship President Obama has with former President Mandela, it’s an honour for this film to be shown at the White House.”

This film based on Mandela’s life will probably not show how he masterminded the deaths of 1000’s of white and black people by blowing up public places in and around South African cities. How he was caught and locked up because he was planning to blow up the biggest train station in South Africa, which would have been, if not caught, a bigger loss of life than the Twin Towers casualties in New York City. He was also offered a choice, to stay in jail or be  free man all he had to do was to renounce violence, even Osama Bin Laden was not given that choice.The FILM premiered in Johannesburg on Sunday 3 November and was attended by Mandela’s wife Graça Machel and his former wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who is portrayed in the movie by Harris.


The Obama’s spending Millions of US taxpayers money to spend time with their hero.

There is no way that Obama does not know the true story behind Mandela and the South Africa of today. Yet he will still think of Mandela as his Hero, which only makes me to believe that he is happy that genocide is in effect in South Africa against white people as he does not even breathe a word about the killings here.

If whats happening in South Africa happened in Iran he would already have had American Sons and Daughters fighting to liberate the Iranians but in South Africa he lets the whites die like dogs, and hails the South African leaders as heroes.

This is only the latest high profile event for the movie, as Hillary Clinton will also host a screening at the Kennedy Center on Nov. 20. Hillary also turns a blind eye on the white genocide in South Africa, she was in South Africa awhile ago living in only the best hotels with super security and had the audacity to say South Africa is just wonderful. Must all whites in South Africa die in one night for Obama, Hillary and the world press to lift an eyebrow ?

The movie is Directed by Justin Chadwick, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom screens nationwide in South Africa from 28 November 2013 and will be distributed by UIP. Please view it with an open mind as it is full of propaganda and maybe you will believe all you see, but one day soon when you are in that place you will know the truth, unfortunately it will be too late for you too. The next South African President has already said whites can stay here as long as we do as we are told or else we will be driven into the sea. Looking forward to tomorrow is not a luxury we have in South Africa.

Your Hero Saluting  his cause

Your Hero Mandela Saluting his cause

It seems that the world leaders are forever happily backing the wrong horse.

Rhon’s Saturday Inspiration From Jesus Calling


Messages received by Rhon at the Inspiration Station from “Jesus Calling”

and published here to inspire you on this new day


It is impossible to praise or thank Me too much. As it is written, I inhabit the praises of My people. Sometimes your adoration is a spontaneous overflow of Joy, in response to radiant beauty or rich blessings. At other times your praise is more disciplined and measured—an act of your will. I dwell equally in both types of praise. Thankfulness, also, is a royal road to draw near Me. A thankful heart has plenty of room for Me.

When you thank Me for the many pleasures I provide, you affirm that I am God, from whom all blessings flow. When adversity strikes and you thank Me anyway, your trust in My sovereignty is a showpiece in invisible realms. Fill up the spare moments of your life with praise and thanksgiving. This joyous discipline will help you live in the intimacy of My Presence.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
—Psalm 22:3 kjv

Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
—Psalm 146:1–2

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
—1 Thessalonians 5:18
