Collected Hodgepodge regarding the Iran Nuclear Deal

Collected Hodgepodge regarding the Iran Nuclear Deal

images2NI1D3YWSen. Chuck Schumer will be the key to defeating the Iran nuclear deal, the New York Democrat’s longtime friend and colleague Joe Lieberman said Sunday. If you will pardon me for just a moment this is precisely what most people use as their grievance toward American foreign policy right now in today’s history.

I believe if one reads paragraph by paragraph about what Democrat senators are saying about the structure of the “Deal” from its very inception until now considering the promises made by congressional people as well as administration officials there can be no doubt that someone is not telling the truth regarding the Iranian Nuclear Deal.

“I think in his heart and head he knows this is a bad deal,” Lieberman, who represented Connecticut in the Senate as a Democrat and later as an Independent for 24 years, told John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York.

A large rally outside Schumer’s office in New York City last week was attended not only byimagesEJS7RLR4 Republican opponents, but also by several liberals and Democrats including Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz and New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

“I think [Schumer] knows his constituents in New York don’t want the deal,” Lieberman said.

Schumer has not yet announced how he plans to vote on ratifying the agreement, but Lieberman said that if he does vote against it he will give other Democrats the freedom to vote for what is best for the country over party loyalty.

This comment will definitely not take rocket science to figure out. I believe that in the original founding and framing days of our Founding Fathers the definition of a republican democracy was basically (1) people have the power which is relinquished, only in part, to the representatives — that vote for and on behalf of what the members of their constituency wanted. Now having stated that, (2) why then is there an active amnesty going on; I made a chart earlier this week to show just how many people exist in the sexual orientation different USA versus the otherwise non LGBTQ USA. The results are stunning!

imagesP0CGCG0MCiting the continued chants of “Death to America” inside Iran, some joined in by Iranian leaders, Lieberman asked, “How can you make a deal with someone who says they want to kill you?” Concessions on what were once promised “anytime/anywhere inspections” have turned the deal into “joke,” Lieberman told several reporters. “The inspections provision, which is really a no-inspections provision, is reason enough to vote against the agreement,” he said.

As the White House campaign to persuade Congress about the wisdom of its Iran nuclear deal moves into its second week, important components of the complex agreement are emerging that will be shrouded from the public and in some cases from the U.S. government itself.

The existence of these secret clauses and interpretations could undermine the public’s trust in the Barack Obama administration’s presentations about the nuclear pact. Already Republicans and other critics of the deal have seized on the side agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency as a weakness in the deal closed last week in Vienna.

images96QOR025The controversy began on Wednesday when Secretary of State John Kerry told House lawmakers behind closed doors that he neither possessed nor had read a copy of two secret side deals between the IAEA and Iran, according to Representative Mike Pompeo, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee who was inside the session. Congress hasn’t seen those side agreements either. Sound familiar?

This Rubbish of “Protected Status” is way out of Control

This is getting way out of control…

eagle with flag design on wingsI make nothing but nonsense out of some of the information I listened to today. Actually the precise situation was called upon and featured on Fox News’ program, The Five. During one of the regular segments (the time where an actual newsperson espouses news) Mr. Greg Gutfeld brought forth some settled cases dealing with antidiscriminatory and discrimination laws that are now being used as a means of gathering money.

What Greg Gutfeld painstakingly pointed out was how those within this category are notified with a general publication of the fines that business owners are being fined. So let’s take your average family or individual from India for this example. Sidebar: We have quasi-leaders who campaign and overly blow their whistles about how in order to assist the nation revive itself to economic prosperity, then we must encourage people and families to become “start up” company’s and become real Americans.

Obama's Constitution breaking_No RespectBut as I have altruistically learned how most politicians just love to hear their own voices and promise the people everything only when rubber hits the road, they do everything within their lying, contemptuousness, and fabricate everything to fit inside of their promises. We literally have heads of state trouncing on the country’s Constitution or — law of the land — why do you suppose? It is not a matter of not knowing; furthermore, it is very much the matter of “catch me if you can” or more aptly, “I’ll do it because I can…no one is going to challenge me on this action…” Therefore, every single time I hear Barack Obama make mention of his integrity, or better still, his pride — swollen pride when something goes his way. Back to my original story….

So up in New York using something akin to Craig’s List or EBay, generally as a means of advertising it is not uncommon to see:

Wanted: One who either knows the culture or a person from India to serve as the wait staff in our new family orientated business — an Indian restaurant. How many other ways can a conscientious person say or state, “Hey we own a very authentic and cultural Indian restaurant. We need our catering service personnel to be knowledgeable, thorough, vigilant and careful. In other words we need people who desire to do a task well and fit into our family’s new business.”

The hilarity behind the issue is what these keen advertiser’s found along with their printedanimated_candle_short  [copy ready] advertisements. First finding, discriminatory advertising and violations of EEOC hiring practices; second finding: for each individual needed (waiter, waitress, chef) carried with it an automatic fine of $5000.

This is the kind of shee-it people could have been presented with along with someone’s hand (palm up) out. As for me gang truthfully now — as long as there is “protected status” given freely by our government then the current situation is Ad Ridiculitis. One person, or a culture can be sensitive but the real issue behind this matter is allegedly political correctness; consequently, the more one is protected the lesser they will become assimilated.

Federal Judge Gives Obama 1 Week to Release Immigrant Children Held

Federal Judge Gives Obama 1 Week to Release Immigrant Children Held in Border Prisons in Deplorable Conditions

88760-full-300x158A large number of women and children who entered the U.S. illegally in 2014 are being held at private prisons in deplorable conditions in violation of a 1997 settlement on the issue. U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee has issued an order, giving the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until August 3rd to either release the families or file an explanation as to why they should remain in custody.

This decision no matter where I went for further verification simply did not quantify for me regarding the issue “giving the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until August 3rd to either release the families or file an explanation as to why they should remain in custody.” On the prima facie level it appears as though these illegals will just be released into the mainstream population.

The Honorable Judge Gee’s order stems from the case known as Flores v. Reno et. al. It was the culmination of more than ten years of litigation over Immigration and Naturalization Service policy on immigrant children (under the age of 18) arriving in the U.S. without their parents or other guardians. With specific exceptions for juvenile delinquents, special-needs children, and those with chemical dependency issues, the settlement requires that “all homes and facilities by licensed programs…shall be non-secure” – in other words, not correctional institutions.

Children with special needs or dealing with drug or alcohol dependency are to be provided with appropriate services and access to treatment programs. In all cases, such minor children are to be placed in the least restrictive environment appropriate to their age and circumstances. They are to have access to water, sanitary facilities, food and medical care as well as reasonably comfortable quarters. The INS is obliged to provide adequate supervision and protection for these children and allow them contact with family members. Under no circumstances are such children to be placed among juvenile offenders – even if the INS must contract with a correctional facility in order to provide them with housing, food and water (in this case, the facility must have separate living quarters available).

In short, immigrant children are to be treated as refugees and asylum seekers, not criminals. The terms of the Flores settlement have not been followed at two privately-run detention centers in Texas. The two facilities are located south of San Antonio, approximately 95 miles apart, in Dilley and Karnes City. A third facility is being operated in Berks County, Pennsylvania, 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

B9k48e0IAAARvkhLast year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), acting under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security, instituted a “blanket policy” of detaining all women with children arriving from Central America. Most of these families are fleeing dangerous, life-threatening conditions in their countries of origin – including domestic abuse. According to court documents, detainees were denied the opportunity for “release on bond, recognizance, supervision or parole if [the ICE] believes that those families arrived in the United States as part of the ‘surge’ of unauthorized entrants – mostly children – that purportedly began in the summer of 2014.”

Judge Gee found DHS policy to be in violation of several provisions of the Flores settlement. She also agreed with the plaintiffs who alleged that the ICE had subjected children to “harsh, substandard conditions and treatment.” According to ACLU lawyers, who represented plaintiffs in an earlier lawsuit, the DHS instituted the policies in order to send a warning message to other would-be asylum seekers.

The defendant in this case – the Federal Government – has claimed that “detention was necessary to protect national security,” according to a professor at the New York University Law School. A press secretary for the DHS told the Los Angeles Times that the agency was “disappointed with the court’s decision and are reviewing it in consultation with the Department of Justice.”

Understanding Judicial Activism

The Supreme Court decision is unadulterated judicial activism. As Chief Justice John Roberts said in dissent: “Today’s decision rests on nothing more than the majority’s own conviction that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry because they want to. . . . Whatever force that belief may have as a matter of moral philosophy, it has no more basis in the Constitution than did the naked policy preferences” in other rightly condemned activist decisions. This is the kind of thing that seems all to prevalent with regards to American politics today.
scotus_062215gn5
Unfortunately for us in the here and now — is that we have various politicians — including the President as well as the former Secretary of State, insofar as leaders within business (i.e., Micro Soft and the entirety of social media lead of course by Face Book.)

Nothing in the Constitution requires the redefinition of marriage in all 50 states, and five unelected justices do not have the authority to redefine marriage everywhere. Still, the question now is: What do we do?

I suggest that pro-marriage citizens should follow the example of pro-life citizens.

In January 1973, the Supreme Court created a constitutional right to abortion in Roe v. Wade. Pro-lifers were told they had lost, that the issue was settled. The law taught citizens that they had a new right, and public opinion quickly swung against pro-lifers by as much as a two-to-one margin. It is hoped that people will begin to see how important public opinion is to any methodology.

geraldoPundits insisted that all young people were for abortion, and elites ridiculed pro-lifers for being on the “wrong side of history.” Although this clearly was not the status quo; yet, several pundits did indeed make careers out of making people believe in the other side of history, isn’t that correct Mr. Rivera, Jane Fonda, just to name a few.

But pro-lifers put their hand to the plow, and today we reap the fruits. My generation is more pro-life than my parents’. A majority of Americans now support pro-life policies. In the last decade, states have enacted more laws protecting unborn babies than were passed in the previous 30 years.

The pro-life community stood up and responded to a bad court ruling. Academics wrote books and articles making the scientific and philosophical case for life. Statesmen like Henry Hyde, Edwin Meese, and Ronald Reagan used the bully pulpit to advance the culture of life. Activists and lawyers got together, formed coalitions, and devised effective strategies.

Now everything the pro-life movement did needs to be done again on this new frontier of 41Z9337g1rL__SX322_BO1,204,203,200_marriage. Here are three critical steps to take.

First, we must call the court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges what it is: judicial activism. Just as the pro-life movement successfully rejected Roe v. Wade and exposed its lies about unborn life and about the Constitution, we must make it clear to our fellow citizens that Obergefell v. Hodges does not tell the truth about marriage or about our Constitution.

Second, we must protect our freedom to speak and live according to our beliefs. The pro-life movement accomplished this by ensuring that pro-life doctors and nurses would never have to perform abortions. It won the battle to prevent taxpayer money from paying for abortions. And it made sure that pro-lifers and pro-life organizations could not be discriminated against by the government.

Pro-marriage forces need to do the same: Ensure that we have freedom from government coercion to lead our lives, rear our children, and operate our businesses and our charities in accord with our beliefs about marriage. Likewise, we must ensure that the government does not discriminate against citizens or organizations because of their belief that marriage is the union of husband and wife.

Third, we must redouble our efforts to make the case for marriage in the public square. To do this, we must use reason and our own personal stories. This is the most compelling way to bring the truth about marriage to light.

LGBTQ as Percentage of US Population

41Ypdk6iCfL__SX329_BO1,204,203,200_The Supreme Court has issued a decision, but that doesn’t end the debate. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, Americans face momentous debates about the nature of marriage and religious liberty. Because the Court has redefined marriage in all 50 states, we have to energetically protect our freedom to live according to conscience and faith as we work to rebuild a strong marriage culture.

Something in the previous paragraph is worth at least observation; moreover, it deserves explanation of the words. Therefore, inasmuch as the Supreme Court has ruled against the principles — we believe there should have been a great deal more energy, effort and rebuttable exercises put forth by the Court. Otherwise what it is that we wound up with was “Usurpation” in the form of political badgering. So please, have another look at that first paragraph:

“Because the Court has redefined marriage in all 50 states, we have to energetically protect our freedom to live according to conscience and faith as we work to rebuild a strong marriage culture.”

The hallmark within that sentence is basically the phrase: “…redefined marriage in all 50 states, we have to energetically protect our freedom to live according to conscience and faith as we work to rebuild a stronger marriage.

Interestingly to live according to conscience and faith is part of the very definition of marriage. And just for the sake of exercise — this will surprise you — how large (or small) is the LGBTQ community living in this nation? Got that number? Okay compare that number to the population of the United States according to the US Census. Using a penny to represent the total population of the US and adding an extraordinarily amount of LGBTQ persons unverified by polling data or any real statistics the number would look something like this. The estimates are from The Williams Institute at U.C.L.A. Law School.

lgbt v population

The first book to respond to the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage, Ryan Anderson draws on the best philosophy and social science to explain what marriage is, why it matters for public policy, and the consequences of its legal redefinition.

Attacks on religious liberty–predicated on the bogus equation of opposition to same-sex marriage with racism–have already begun, and modest efforts in Indiana and other states to protect believers’ rights have met with hysterics from media and corporate elites.

Anderson tells the stories of innocent citizens who have been coerced and penalized by the government and offers a strategy to protect the natural right of religious liberty. Anderson reports on the latest research on same-sex parenting, filling it out with the testimony of children raised by gays and lesbians. He closes with a comprehensive roadmap on how to rebuild a culture of marriage, with work to be done by everyone.

The nation’s leading defender of marriage in the media and on university campuses, Ryan Anderson has produced the must-read manual on where to go from here. There are reasonable and compelling arguments for the truth about marriage, but too many of our neighbors haven’t heard them. Truth is never on “the wrong side of history,” but we have to make the case. We will decide which side of history we are on.

Measuring the Law of Double Standards

01EMAILS-master675Measuring the Law of Double Standards

Now then let’s be as realistic as possible here, shall we? Just on a whim let’s say that not one, but two Inspector’s General did a massive amount of research, given their staff’s and experts and all that the big money could buy, with the expressed intention of seeing if Hillary Rodham Clinton did in fact mishandle classified government documents on her own cell phone whilst using a self-provided server.

The move comes after a conclusion in a June 29 memo by the inspector general for the State Department and the inspector general for the Intelligence Community [IC] that Clinton’s private account had “hundreds of potentially classified emails” in it. The memo was sent to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management. doj2

Hoping beyond all hope is that what the request is for — an investigation to see if there in fact was mishandling of secret government documents by Mrs. Clinton, and the request for the Justice department (DOJ) to conduct a further investigation.

Please let us remind our reader’s that General David Patraeus, former Commander of the Army as well as former Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff and after a heralded tenure serving our nation in excess of 37 years, later at the request of many became the Director, Central Intelligence Agency.

Hillary clintHowever, there is something interesting given the two different cases — Clinton and Patraeus — whilst Hillary Rodham Clinton has admitted to using email for classified documents, yet only after it had been discovered and literally states, “Any released emails deemed classified by the administration have been done so after the fact, and not at the time they were transmitted.”

General Patraeus on the other hand never admitted to, or was convicted of willful knowledge of mishandling government classified documents. Research clearly shows that General Patraeus’ biographer, Paula Broadwell, was a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering and political geography. She earned a Master of Arts degree in international security from the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies in 2006. She earned a Master of Public Administration degree from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2008.

The Washington Post has reported that Broadwell had earlier (2007) been asked to withdraw from Harvard’s Ph.D. program, as her coursework reportedly did not meet the university’s standards. Broadwell is a Research Associate in the Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership Fellows. In 2008, she entered the PhD program at Department of War Studies at King’s College London. As of February 2014 Broadwell is listed as a “former student” presumably without receiving a Ph.D. Her lead supervisor at KCL was Lawrence Freedman., and was within her era of serving as a lieutenant colonel United States Army Reserve. It was Paula Broadwell that was involved in an extra-martial  affair with the General. paula broadwell

I do think it is fair to say that if a person is going to pass classified material (documents) over to someone else this writing is intended to illustrate the differences between the cases — moreover, that Paula Broadwell had the necessary top secret security clearance; therefore, we also intend on showing how these two cases are radically different.

The two Inspector’s General have been viewing, categorizing and objectifying hundreds of thousands of Hillary Clinton emails that Clinton herself has already edited and discarded.

Politico and others pointed out that the original version stated a criminal investigation was requested “into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state.”

Obama ought to stay and learn about himself…

He ought to stay and learn about himself…

the Real ObamaPresident Barack Obama is set to visit his father’s native Kenya this weekend in a long-anticipated trip designed to highlight his personal ties to a continent that has largely been on the periphery of his foreign-policy agenda. Why not use journalistic prudence and use only the words that are significant. How about, “Barack Obama goes to Kenya.”

Mr. Obama plans to showcase policy initiatives he hopes will define his Africa legacy, such width="110" as steps to increase access to electricity. In all sincerity, we believe it is just more of Obama getting what he really wants — a time, place and opportunity to speak to those country leader’s that will pay into his “stash of cash” for when the time finally arrives when he is out of the White House.

thFNLU8AFVHe will move on to Ethiopia, meeting with the African Union on matters of trade, business and security, as U.S. officials have voiced growing concerns over the rise of extremism. Or…what else would you allow the mainstream media to report? Heaven forbid matters close to the truth. One truth that we all know about is USAID or the trunk loads of taxpayer money that aids everything in Africa yet there has never been a conceivable effort or where with all to allow us to know how our investment’s are doing.

But his arrival in Nairobi on Friday is in itself a hallmark moment for his presidency. For Mr. Obama, it isn’t so much what he does, but who he is that ties him to the continent—and to Kenya in particular—and sets him apart from other American presidents who have invested in Africa.

His two-day visit is widely seen as a homecoming of sorts, as the first African-American U.S. president returning to a country that considers him a native son. Hallmark moment for his presidency may, in fact, be true; subsequently, as we discussed just days ago — did we really think that this nation’s “first African American president” did turn out the way you wanted or anticipated.

Although it must be an uncomfortable feeling building a “legacy” on such predetermined notions — as such Obama really doesn’t have much to ramble about in the U.S. and the only legacy that a realist could utter would be all about failure.

Mr. Obama plans to spend time with members of his father’s family. He will meet with B-ijxAJCIAA0r70Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, hold an event with young African leaders and reflect on his familial roots in a speech at an indoor sports arena. “He’s looking forward to the trip and the opportunity to spend some time in private with some of his relatives,” said Susan Rice, Mr. Obama’s national-security adviser.

Former President George W. Bush was heralded for his efforts to combat the spread of HIV and AIDS in Africa, and his predecessor, Bill Clinton, spearheaded a host of economic initiatives on the continent. Mr. Obama, however, hasn’t showcased Africa initiatives until more recently, after his 2012 re-election, in part because of the political backlash stirred by his Kenyan roots.

Have you heard of Obama’s White House Task Force for Immigrants and Refugees?

Celebration for 152 more American's featuring Sisters Jenna, 3, left, and Jenny Ho, 5, clap for their mother with their dad, Henry.

Celebration for 152 more American’s featuring Sisters Jenna, 3, left, and Jenny Ho, 5, clap for their mother with their dad, Henry.

President Obama’s making a big push in the final months of his presidency to convert huge numbers of recent immigrants and refugees into “new Americans,” and the mayors of the nation’s cities are lining up to help him accomplish his goal.

They talk about the need for greater “diversity” and the economic benefits that immigrants bring. Okay! I am all ears along with my humbled staff — who is it exactly who feels the need for more diversity?

But critics say the program is not as much about creating “new Americans” as it is about creating new “voters” who will help re-elect Democrats and institutionalize Obama’s policies on immigration, education and healthcare for years to come.

Obama’s White House Task Force on New Americans is leading the charge, signing up mayors in major cities to further the goal of encouraging recent immigrants and refugees to go through the process of becoming a citizen.

The mayors of New York and Boston have become the latest to join Obama’s diversity program.

They became the fifth and sixth U.S. cities to hop aboard Obama’s “welcoming” parade for hundreds of thousands of immigrants and refugees who entered the country — some legally, some illegally — but haven’t yet pursued citizenship.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a similar contract with the federal government on June 10.

New York and Boston join Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville and Atlanta, whose mayors have also committed to the “new Americans” concept proffered by the White House. DHS

This is where I will send a direct copy of this email to my Congressman Elijah Cummings in Maryland. How could any member of human kind feel the need for diversity when the United States Department of H0meland Security is in arrangements with the United States Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) services assisting DHS in diversifying the United States?

President Obama’s reckless immigration policies

thinker 14The FBI failed to stop another terror attack, this time in Chattanooga, and the pressure building on the bureau from President Obama’s reckless immigration policies may be reaching a boiling point, say security experts.

And the problem goes far beyond a loose border, where some 400,000 illegal aliens enter each year. It’s also the ease with which someone from a hostile Middle Eastern country can get a visa.

Under current U.S. immigration policy, an ISIS terrorist doesn’t need to hop a fence or swim a river to reach America. He can enter the U.S. legally as a student, as a skilled guest-worker, as a refugee, as an entrepreneur, or as a tourist – and fly here in the comfort of a jumbo jet.

We at The Contemplative Thinker have not been silent or whooshes’ regarding the loose, forbearing and continually getting worse — reckless disregard for visas to enter the U.S.A., which are somehow connected to the current immigration laws.

Please believe me when I explain that there was a time when it appeared as though ALL we wrote about was the tireless and mutable conditions our entire immigration policy has been. But let’s call it — what it is. Excrement, rubbish and human dung.

Every single time we thought that we were helpful even useful to our communities then all it took was some “just watch me step” from President Barack Obama just signing away any personal or particular feelings our communities had regarding what I call “Immigration/Visa Reform Issues.”

RT_isil_fighter_holding_flag_mosul_jt_140827_16x9_608We have written exhaustively about the problems inherent the entire notion of sanctuary cities, a Visa Lottery, or any other giveaway scheme that not only encourages but literally assists illegal’s, terrorists, ISIS— ISL, Russian, or members of any other nation and ideology to gain access to the U.S.

Let’s be more specific shall we? Senator Lindsey Graham is a senator, Gang of Eight

The infamous Gang of Eight

The infamous Gang of Eight

member, who would switch political affiliation if it would win him another term and this traitor is running for president? Senator Jon McCain is a waffling maniac on any matters of my communities Immigration/Visa Reform Issues. Hillary Clinton voted for the renewal of the Visa Lottery program when she was in congress; it honestly seems that Mr. Donald Trump is capitalizing on what people fear will and has happened.

But let’s not digress whatsoever — because of money and the interplay between special interest groups and politicians it seems the latter could care less about what goes on in our communities. According to U.S. Census data, the U.S. welcomes about 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year. This represents the fastest growing segment of immigrants coming to America. While some may enter with questionable backgrounds, the chances are greater that they will get radicalized after they arrive.

Now please consider the open and endless flow of refugees and asylum-seekers during this same time period. Angelina Jolie just delivered a prepared statement on “World Refugee Day” at a refugee camp outside of Syria in Southwest Turkey. Her visit was meant to raise awareness of the plight of refugees, the number of which has swelled to a record 60 million worldwide, according to the U.N.

Now is the time for good leadership…please no overly tolerant individuals need apply.

Kardashian, Jenner, Look at celebrities from an Open and Honest perspective…

Look at celebrities from an Open and Honest perspective…

Photo by: KeithJMA/STAR MAX/IPx 2015 7/13/15 Kim Kardashian is seen arriving at Craig's in West Hollywood. (Los Angeles, CA)
All things being equal this entire business of supporting celebrities’ and whatever it is that morally, ethically and right or wrong it may be, I think that Millennia’s and the entire generation that drools over — “so and SOS’s” posterior really need some kind of reality check. So what is up with this writer and why does he seem a bit excessive about people who refer to themselves as “celebs.”

I have written on this subject several times before (American Age.com) in particular how various people end up as celebrities. First, I want to make a differential on how our language works, which is basically telling it the way that it really is. There is a huge difference between being a “Star” and a “Celebrity.” Now having written that it is time to look at the meaning of the words.

According to Merrium-Webster.com “Stardom” is actually the state of being a very famous140615F-Caitlyn-Jenner performer; examples given are an actor/actress who has achieved movie stardom; also, stardom refers to dreams and heavy pursuits of dreams [dreams of becoming a star]. We think that it is imperative to look at other sources therefore according to Dictionary.com “stardom” for their exhaustive definition refers to a person as being: prominent, or distinguished; preeminent, this of course is from the verb tense.

So when we all look at stars or people making it to the realm of stardom I believe that most people would admit that there is trouble even starting a list. I believe everyone of critical thinking mind would of course agree that certain categories must be put into place to give appropriate meaning, such as: Films, Big business (i.e., MacDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell), Manufactures such as Ford Motor Company, Timex, or Auto; The Steel Industry such as Kaiser Steel, Sports, Recording Artists, huge mathematicians’, and on and on and on.

movie-cameraNow do you think an individual’s claim to fame should or could be a sex tape? No I’m certain that during the Paris Hilton days of who gets a little tonight wouldn’t confer any kind of stardom upon those who hung out with Ms. Hilton and whose pursuits we every bit as profane.

Celebrities on the other hand, are normally those people who are worshiping stars in front of the media. Celebrity is fame and public attention in the media, usually applied to a person, or group of people (celebrity couple, family etc.), or occasionally, to animals or fictional entities.

Successful careers in sports and entertainment are commonly associated with celebrity status. People may also become celebrities due to media attention for their lifestyle, wealth, or actions, or for their connection to a famous person. Newspapers started including gossip columns and certain clubs and events became places to be seen in order to receive publicity.

And now for a moral rebuttal. In almost all sources used in preparing this article the most common themes were — Stars have earned it, whilst celebs are wannabe’s living in the realm of a star yet not having done anything to accomplish this feat. And I apologize, the release of Kim Kardashian’s sex tape with rapper Ray J in 2003 brought her to a new level of fame, leading to magazine covers, book deals, and reality TV series.

It is believed that stardom and celebrities actually are far more pronounced in the Western cultures. When those of us who live in the West actually get appalled at some of the rubbish that celebs will do for recognition, People Magazine, and or wealth has this phenomena gotten bigger since the election of Barack Obama?
