The Luckiest Man Alive! Larry Silverstein

This video provides a chronology of World Trade Center owner, Larry Silverstein’s day on September 11th, 2001. The only question that remains unanswered about Larry’s day, is why he was so lucky. Firstly, he managed to avoid being killed in the attacks due to a fortunate appointment with a dermatologist. The events of 9/11 also provided an easy solution to the costly and cumbersome problem of how to deal with the illegal asbestos that covered every steel beam in the twin towers. 9/11 also solved Silverstein’s problem of finding new tenants to occupy the trade center buildings. And on top of that, Silverstein gained a multi-billion dollar payout from an insurance policy he took out just 6 weeks before 9/11. Considering all of these fortunate coincidences, it is strange that Silverstein has not even been questioned by the police.

Homeland Security Defines you as a Terrorist

Homeland Security Terrorism A Homeland Security document published in 2009 received little attention during at the time due to the media’s ongoing propaganda about the swine flu, shockingly lists the “alternative media”, leaderless resistance (such as Occupy Wall Street), the Militia Movement, the Patriot Movement, People who Disagree with Paying Income Tax, with NEO Nazis and other such extreme hate groups. The document implies that people who disagree with the mass media’s version of events are potential domestic terrorists and says, “A term used to describe various information sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media products and outlets.”

The groups covered in this document could describe any organized group in the U.S. One can take from this that any organized group is considered a terrorist group and that you just have to add extreme to the name of the group and magically it is now a terrorist group.

The DHS document was almost immediately rescinded, but the groups listed alongside Neo-Nazis, Aryan prison gangs and black power extremists again prove that the federal government is targeting American citizens who are merely knowledgeable about their rights and up on current issues as potential domestic terrorists to be treated as a “threat” to law enforcement. This document says it is an unclassified document, so that means that it is still an official Homeland Security Document and it is only a matter of time before it is issued again to the nations law enforcement agencies.

Here is the whole document from homeland security (this is a link to the document on their site).

(U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon

(U//FOUO) Homeland Security Reference Aids—prepared by the DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A)—provide baseline information on a variety of homeland security issues. This product is one in a series of reference aids designed to provide operational and intelligence advice and assistance to other elements of DHS, as well as state, local, and regional fusions centers. DHS/I&A intends this background information to assist federal, state, local, and tribal homeland security and law enforcement officials in conducting analytic activities. This product provides definitions for key terms and phrases that often appear in DHS analysis that addresses the nature and scope of the threat that domestic, non-Islamic extremism poses to the United States.

“Orwell Rolls in his Grave” Documentary about Media Control

Director Robert Kane Pappas’ ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE is the consummate critical examination of the Fourth Estate(News Media as a political force), once the bastion of American democracy.

Asking whether America has entered an Orwellian world of doublespeak where outright lies can pass for the truth, Pappas explores what the media doesn’t like to talk about: itself. Meticulously tracing the process by which media has distorted and often dismissed actual news events, Pappas presents a riveting and eloquent mix of media professionals and leading intellectual voices on the media.

Documentaries About Journalism: Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, Outfoxed, Orwell Rolls in His Grave, Al Franken: God Spoke

Among the cast of characters in ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE are Charles Lewis, director of the Center for Public Integrity, Vincent Bugliosi, former L.A. prosecutor and legal scholar, film director and author Michael Moore, Rep. Bernie Sanders, Danny Schecter, author and former producer for ABC and CNN, and Tony Benn, former member of the British Parliament.

ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE provides a vital forum for ideas that will never be heard in mainstream media. From Globalvision’s Danny Schecter: “We falsely think of our country as a democracy when it has evolved into a mediacracy – where a media that is supposed to check political abuse is part of the political abuse.”

New York University media professor Mark Crispin Miller says, “These commercial entities now vie with the government for control over our lives. They are not a healthy counterweight to government. Goebbels said that what you want in a media system — he meant the Nazi media system — is to present the ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity.” From the very size of the media monopolies and how they got that way to who decides what gets on the air and what doesn’t, ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE moves through a troubling list of questions and news stories that go unanswered and unreported in the mainstream media.

Are Americans being given the information a democracy needs to survive or have they been electronically lobotomized? Has the frenzy for media consolidation led to a dangerous irony where in an era of more news sources the majority of the population has actually become less informed? ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE reminds us that 1984 is no longer a date in the future.

Rupert Murdoch and Media Corruption

rupert murdoch-fox-nazi-UThe endless cesspool which was Rupert Murdoch’s London tabloid News of the World is finished, however the underhanded corporate politics of the master nevertheless hold sway in the U.S. and Britain. Murdoch is definitely the great goule of mass media corruption and consolidation on both sides of the Atlantic. But he is not a solitary villain. “Murdoch wasn’t the only media beneficiary when the FCC allowed him and others to consolidate their power and influence.” All corporate media are truth thieves.

rupert-murdoch-kingIn the event it can be stated that there is a master of planet wide corporate mass media, that individual is Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch’s News Corporation reigns supreme in television and print media within his native Australia, the United States and the U.k.

United states citizens tend to be most acquainted with News Corporation ownership with the Fox news cable channel, the New York Post, Dow Jones Inc., the Wall Street Journal, and Twentieth Century Fox movie studio and others. The Murdoch organization isn’t just big, it is known for a specific political mindset. Inspite of the declaration of being “fair and balanced” Fox news along with other Murdoch outlets blatantly encourage and safeguard Right Wing bordering on Fascist interests, politics and Muslim hating propaganda.

One of Rupert Murdoch’s Newspapers is Mixed up in a Scandal so Debased that the Mogul is shutting it down.

One of Murdoch’s British newspapers, the News of the World, is mixed up in a scandal so tremendous that it prompted the mogul to shut down that publication. During a period of several years, the News of the World employed private investigators to break into in to the voice mail messages of members of the British royal family, former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, celebs, along with other notable individuals.

The News of the World settled out of court with some of the people harmed by the invasion of privacy. In some cases, a reporter plus an investigator were sentenced to prison because of their actions. A lot of these cases are not new, and have been festoring just beneath the surface with the News Corporation effectively reducing bad publicity. Being able to keep this sordid story from impacting the conglomerate right up until recently is only one sign of the extremely corrupt partnership between corporate media and political figures.

British PM’s Communications Director Arrested for Criminal Conduct While in Rupert Murdoch’s Employ.

British Prime Minister David Cameron tapped Andy Coulson, a prior News of the World editor, to become his communications director. This appointment came into being inspite of the growing scandal. Coulson ultimately resigned as the story unfolded, and he has since been arrested, however his selection showed clearly that Murdoch believed he had absolutely nothing to fear from political figures and that he seemed to be right, to be so supercilious.

Rupert Murdoch’s Employees Obstructing Justice.

Like all criminal conduct however, some evidence came to light ultimately that changed the equation. A story broke that involved not only phone tapping but police misconduct and obstruction of a kidnapping and murder investigation. In 2002 a British adolescent was kidnapped and later found murdered. In the period she was missing but still not accounted for, her voice mails were erased and her family was given false hope that she was still alive.

It had been a News of the World private eye that erased the voice mails and jeopardized an ongoing police investigation. Some police officers were misdirected in their investigation in the case, while some were on the take and offered News of the World backchannel information in order to maintain a amiable relationship with the corporate power house.

The recognition of this affront caused immediate and widespread revulsion among the British public, worried advertisers, and prompted political figures to outdo each other in condemning the publication.

All this can make great fodder throughout the media, however nobody is discussing exactly what all this affirms about government and press relations and not simply in Britain but in the Uniited States as well. Murdoch acquired a permanent waiver of FCC rules which prohibit ownership of a newspaper and television station in the same city. The New York Post and WNYW television are all permitted to stay in his grip, and give him a disproportionately significant voice in the media capital of the United States. The media happen to be controlled by many wealthy individuals and corporations, and our ability get factual information and complete stories is jeopardized in this process.

Corporate Media, Maybe the Most Destructive Influences in Modern Society.

Money is a corrupting influence and corruption in the media is particularly insidious. All through history, the press have swayed public opinion, and through doing so structure events and influence popular thought on the important issues of the moment. The media even create issues which would not have existed before, this can be good or it can be used to distract from real imporant topics, like worrying about the dept ceiling, but not screaming over the fect that the war on Iraq is still going and that alone would handle the debt ceiling problem. When the press are concentrated into fewer and fewer and wealthier hands, the potential for abuse is enormous. Murdoch was not the only media beneficiary when the FCC allowed him and others to consolidate their power and influence. He’s one among the most visible.

Bad publicity aside, there’s every cause to think that Murdoch may succeed in purchasing Britain’s Sky News Service. He may be slowed by these events, but he’s rich and powerful and will eventually come out triumphant unless there is a massive public outcry for justice to be done on Murdoch himself. Depending upon which way the political winds blow, more reporters, editors and corrupt police officers may suffer, but it is the man with the gold who makes the rules.

Politicians in London, New York and Washington will still dance to the tune of the Murdochs of the world. It is they who decide who will and won’t be in the power in the first place throguh their corrupt media machine. Time to end Murdoch’s empire and put back in legislation that prevents this type of criminality from happening.

B.o.B. “Dr. Aden” Music Video and Lyrics

B.o.B “Dr. Aden”

B.o.B. “Dr. Aden”, is about the Bayer Company. Back in the 80’s Bayer sold a medicine for people with hemophilia, that would help them clot their blood. Bayer discovered that the medicine had been contaminated with AIDS and the FDA knew this, and thus did not want it sold in America.

Bayer did not want to lose money so they sold it in Europe, Latin America and Asia. Not only did Bayer gain revenue from a destructive product but they also used it as a means to control the world population by killing people in other countries. As the power elite have a misguided concept that they must kill people to keep the population down. Dr. Aden realized the truth and this is her story.

B.o.B Dr. Aden Lyrics

Well this is the mysterious case of Dr. Aden
looking after her patients was her only obligation but
that was back before, back before the situation
before she got a visit from an agent
He introduced himself as an employee of the nation
he asked would she be willing to offer cooperation
you fit the job description and all the qualifications
if interested I need your signature on this paper (sign here)
she signed the dotted line without the slightest hesitation
she then received a letter stating the rules and regulations
and the military bases where she must be relocated
she is not to discuss any business thats work related

News Clips – Talking

Its central America on a classified location
before border control before a illegal immigration
inside a lab where chemicals are manipulated
is where we see Dr.Aden, she’s very concentrated
but her concentrations broken
when she hears a conversation down the halls
small talk about destabilization and
outta curiosity she wanders from her station
inside a unlocked office she did some investigation
she breaks into a file with top secret information
probably some of the most disturbing documentation
she ever saw in her life
the article simply stated
a study being conducted on human civilization

News Clips – Talking

Deep down inside she wished it was all her imagination
she couldn’t doubt it, cause there it clearly stated
she works in a facility where viruses are created
and not only that, but ‘member when she had her patients
she wrote out prescriptions for what she thought was medication
her office was really just a part of the operation
she wipes her eyes as they water full of frustration
how a victim of government experimentation
wheres the justification, wheres the justification?
wheres the judge when you need him?
he’s probably on a vacation
probably inside of the same country that these events takes place in
but as the puzzle pieces fall into proper arrangement
yes we began to see the intentions of these creations
the patterns of epidemics like H.I.V. in the 80′s
biological chemicals designed to be contagious
there’s nothing in a business of controlling the population

If you think this some is some crazy, outlandish, horror story then check this out.

Rage Against The Machine “Testify” Music Video & Lyrics

Rage Against The Machine “Testify”

Rage Against The Machine’s song “Testify” about misrepresentation of world events by the US media. News anchors relay lies into the homes of Americans because that’s all the Americans, being empty people whose only concerns are the media’s showcase of glamour and gossip, can handle. The only way for people to survive is through the opiates that they partake of every day in the form of celebrities and media. It uses the party slogan for the Oceania government in the book 1984: “Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past.”

Rage Against The Machine’s music video for “Testify” features the Presidential Race of 2000 and shows Al Gore and George Bush where basically the same person as they said the same things. Michael Moore directed this video.

The movie ran through me
The glamour subdued me
The tabloid untied me
I’m empty please fill me
Mister anchor assure me
That Baghdad is burning
Your voice it is so soothing
That cunning mantra of killing
I need you my witness
To dress this up so bloodless
To numb me and purge me now
Of thoughts of blaming you
Yes the car is our wheelchair
My witness your coughing
Oily silence mocks the legless boys
Who travel now in coffins
On the corner
The jury’s sleepless
We found your weakness
And it’s right outside your door

Now testify
Now testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Yes testify
Its right outside your door

With precision you feed me
My witness I’m hungry
Your temple it calms me
So I can carry on
My slaving sweating the skin right off my bones
On a bed of fire I’m choking on the smoke that fills my home
The wrecking ball is rushing
Witness your blushing
The pipeline is gushing
While here we lie in tombs
While on the corner
The jury’s sleepless
We found your weakness
And it’s right outside your door

Now testify
Yeah testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Now testify
It’s right outside your door

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set

Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now controls the past
Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now?

Now testify
Testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Testify
It’s right outside your door

Lowkey “Million Man March” Ft. Mai Khalil—Lyrics & Music Video

Lowkey “Million Man March” Ft. Mai Khalil

Lowkey’s “Million Man March” Ft. Mai Khalil is even more powerful now than when he wrote it, with recent events in Egypt, where the people of the world’s largest Arab country rose up against a military dictatorship which received $1.3 billion of U.S. foreign aid (second only to Israel). Egyptians were suffering from widespread poverty and unemployment and 30 years of violent repression by the regime of Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak’s government is also a key ally to the United State’s imperial project in the Middle East.

Egypt was not simply an uprising against Mubarak’s dictatorship, just like Tunisia’s uprising wasn’t simply against Ben Ali’s. These movements are not, ultimately, about individuals.

The song’s title and chorus are inspired by a quote (shown at the end of the video) attributed to Tupac Katari, leader of the 18th century uprising by the indigenous Aymara people against the Spanish Empire in what is now the nation of Bolivia. Tupac Katari (born Julián Apasa Nina) took his name in honor of two other indigenous revolutionaries, Túpac Amaru II and Tomás Katari, who also lead uprisings against the Spanish Empire. Tupac Katari was eventually executed by the Spanish by being tied to four horses who pulled his body apart. He is seen as a forebear to Bolivia’s contemporary indigenous movement, a movement which has propelled Evo Morales to the country’s presidency. Bolivia, also the place where Che Guevara was executed, embodies the history of revolutionaries who saw their legacy not through the length of their own lives, but in the ways that their actions would influence others to struggle for their liberation.

The rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur, like Tupac Katari, was named after Túpac Amaru II by his mother, herself a member of the Black Panthers, an organization that drew inspiration from the work of Frantz Fanon and the wave of anti-colonial revolutions sweeping the African continent. As discussed in the documentary Slingshot Hip Hop, Tupac was one of the foremost influences on DAM (Da Arabian MCs), innovators in the Palestinian hip hop movement that Lowkey and Mai Khalil have been influenced by. DAM saw parallels between Tupac’s description of the oppression Black people experience in the ghettoes of American cities and the oppression that their people experience living under Israeli apartheid.

Connections such as these, which stretch across history and geographic location, show that the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt can be viewed both as part of a global struggle against neo-colonial/neoliberal empire, and in the lineage of the over 500 year resistance to European colonization of the majority of the world. This song reflects the cross-pollination represented in global hip-hop culture and the transnational/transhistorical movements for justice which global hip-hop has the power to reflect and give artistic voice.

“You might take my life, but you can’t my take my soul.”

Lowkey “Cradle of Civilization” Ft. Mai Khalil Lyrics

Lowkey Soundtrack to the Struggle

Buy Lowkey's Cradle of Civilization

You might take my life
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul
You might take my freedom
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul

Verse 1:
Whether it’s a cancer patient or assassination
Or I fought for emancipation
My intentions were pure; you can debate them
But no, never ever shook hands with Satan
My fans are amazing
I thank and praise ‘em
When I die don’t cry, just congratulations
A million more feet will stamp the pavement
With plans for changes, no exaggeration
We will not be ignored
You’ll be rocked with the force
Of the bombs that you dropped in these wars
I will not be bought
And I consciously thought it was wrong so I constantly fought
Peace is something I would really adore
But we are at war so give me your sword
I’m merely a corpse but still be assured
When you kill me there will be a million more

Breakdown:
Born alone and die alone
Those words ringin’ inside my dome
Best friends of the pen and the microphone
Romin’ until I find my way home
Turn my body cold but my soul is mine
Take a deep breath and I close my eyes
I will go when I’m supposed to die
But in death I will multiply

Chorus:
My back’s against the wall
But you can’t kill us a-a-all
Even if you take my life
Still we will survive
We shall overcome
And the tables will tu-u-urn
Today I die as a one
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return

Verse 2:
In these critical times don’t be really surprised
If I get victimised by Gideon’s spies
I sympathise with that Brazilian guy
On the tube but we’re used to the hideous lies
Your civilians die, millions cry
Our civilians die, they’re militants right?
How silly am I to be figuring why?
The injustice is clear when I feel it inside
Hear me in Gaza, hear me in Glasgow
Hear me in Baghdad, hear me in Plaistow
Clearly they hear me from here to Chicago
Think things are all good but they aren’t though
Peace is something I would really adore
But we are at war so give me your sword
I’m merely a corpse but still be assured
When you kill me there will be a million more

Breakdown:
Born alone and die alone
Those words ringin’ inside my dome
Best friends of the pen and the microphone
Romin’ until I find my way home
Turn my body cold but my soul is mine
Take a deep breath and I close my eyes
I will go when I’m supposed to die
But in death I will multiply

Chorus:
My back’s against the wall
But you can’t kill us a-a-all
Even if you take my life
Still we will survive
We shall overcome
And the tables will tu-u-urn
Today I die as a one
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return

Verse 3:
My people are bleedin’
So I’m readin’ and seekin’ the deepest of meanings
My demons are breeding
In my sleep I can feel it I need to defeat them
My temperature’s risin’
If tempted I’ll rise with the temper of Tyson
Resent all the violence
Cos of people with tension it tends to divide them
The pen that I write with
Is better than a sword when I strike with the strength of a Titan
My friends are still fighting against all the tyrants
So then why then would it end when I die then?
Peace is something I would really adore
But we are at war; my pen’s killing your sword
I’m merely a corpse but still be assured
When you kill me there will be a million more

Breakdown:
Born alone and die alone
Those words ringin’ inside my dome
Best friends of the pen and the microphone
Romin’ until I find my way home
Turn my body cold but my soul is mine
Take a deep breath and I close my eyes
I will go when I’m supposed to die
But in death I will multiply

Chorus:
My back’s against the wall
But you can’t kill us a-a-all
Even if you take my life
Still we will survive
We shall overcome
And the tables will tu-u-urn
Today I die as a one
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return
But as millions I’ll return

You might take my life
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul
You might take my freedom
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul
You might take my life
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul
You might take my freedom
But you can’t take my soul
You can’t take my soul

Lowkey’s Obama Nation Music Video was Banned From TV, Lyrics Included in This Article

Lowkey–Obama Nation

Lowkey the man who wrote Obama Nation is a 24-year-old British musician, poet, playwright and political activist of English and Iraqi descent, in an interview on RT News, describes “Obamanation” by saying:

“It was an examination of America’s role in the world. The main purpose of the song was to draw the American people’s attention to the way in which they are perceived by the rest of the world. Because I think they very much live in a bubble — I’m somebody that has travelled the United States quite thoroughly, and the media in the United States, by and large, does not actually show what is really going on and people have genuine grievances with United States foreign policy. Whether a person thinks those military bases should exist or not [earlier in the interview, Lowkey referred to the 1,000 US military bases located around the world], I think it would be very hard to disagree that those military bases represent the building of empire and the expansion of empire. And I am not anti-American, I am anti-empire.”

This is a very powerful video so enjoy it.

Lowkey—Obama Nation Lyrics

This track is not an attack upon the American people,
It’s an attack upon the system within which they live.
Since 1945 the United States has attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments,
In the process the US has caused the end of life for several million people,
And condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair.

The strength of your dreaming prevents you from reason,
The American dream only makes sense if you’re sleeping,
It’s just a cruel fantasy; their politics took my voice away,
But their music gave it back to me,
The land where the lumpen are consumed by consumption,
Killing themselves to shovel down food in abundance,
I guess a rapper from Britain is a rare voice,
America is capitalism on steroids,
Natives kept in casinos and reservations,
Displaced slaves never given reparations,
Take everything from Native Americans,
And wonder why i call it the racist experiment,
Afraid of your melanin, the same as it’s ever been,
That aint gonna change with the race of the president,
I see imperialism under your skin tone,
You could call it Christopher Columbus syndrome.

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight,
For the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight,
For the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.

The world’s entertainer, the world’s devastator,
From Venezuela, to Mesopotamia,
Your cameras lie, cause they have to hide the savage crimes,
Committed on leaders that happen to try and nationalize,
Eating competitions? while the worlds been starving,
Beat up communism with the help of Bin Laden,
Where would your war of terror be without that man,
Every day you create more Nidal Hassan’s,
Kill a man from the military, you’re a weirdo,
But kill a wog from the Middle East you’re a hero,
Your country is causing screams that never reach your ear holes,
America inflicted a million Ground Zero’s,
Follow the dollar and swallow your humanity,
Soldier’s committing savagery you never even have to see,
Those mad at me, writing emails angrily,
I’m not anti-America, America is anti-me!

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight,
For the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.

Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obama’s nation? Or an abomination?

Doesn’t make any difference when they bomb your nation.

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night, that our flag was still there,
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
For the land of the free and the home of the brave,

I don’t care if him and Cheney are long lost relations,
What matters more is the policies, I lost my patience,
Stop debating bringing race into the conversation,
Occupation and cooperation equals profit making,
It’s over; people wake up from the dream now,
Nobel peace prize, Jay Z on speed-dial,
It’s the substance within, not the colour of your skin,
Are you the puppeteer or the puppet on the string?,
So many believed it was instantly gonna’ change,
There was still Dennis Ross, Brzezinski and Robert Gates,
What happened to Chas freeman? (AIPAC),
What happened to Tristan Anderson?,
It’s a machine that keeps that man breathing,
I have the heart to say what all the other rappers aren’t,
Words like Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan,
The wars on, and you morons were all wrong,
I call Obama a bomber cause those are your bombs.
