    Who Am I ???

    About meWelcome and Thank you for visiting.

    BGTV Media Online blog features the truth of what is going on in our world today. Regular people with regular lives and their experiences with life. This blog features videos that I feel will be helpful in Education of the outside world and the struggles we face as humans to survive. Some videos will be for entertainment as well.

    I find that people in different countries and cultures are just the same as me and you. I really didn’t feel that way until I moved to California in 2003 and started meeting people from all walks of the world.

    Being a southern small town girl from the east coast so used to dealing mainly with only two races(black and white), I was really fascinated when I arrived in California.

    The hot weather and the smell of different exotic foods in the air immediately drew me to love this place. Besides that now I felt free to be myself and live my life.

    Over the years I have met (OMG) I can’t even begin to count how many people, but many became work associates and some good friends.

    Getting to know people and their cultures I began to understand that we all are the same. We all breathe the air and have to attend to everyday life situations that may come our way.

    Modeling was one of my professions and in doing that I have come to understand the true beauty of a person on the inside and out. I understand that it’s not what’s on the outside that is true beauty, but what’s on the inside as beauty is skin deep, but ugly is too the bone. Honestly I hate stuck up people and folks who think they are all that. After going through many challenges in my life, I understand human nature and think and understand the concepts of life and human beings well. This in the long run have taught me how to associate with people as an individual as well as a group.

    Now I have made it my business to spread the word and the truth about so many unfortunate people and the disasters that strike their lives.

“U.S. Deports Salvadoran General Linked to Murders, Torture”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-10

 Human rights advocates and family members of victims are celebrating a pair of victories in long campaigns to deport Salvadoran generals accused of U.S-backed atrocities. On Wednesday, former General Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova was deported to El Salvador from the U.S., ending a 16-year legal battle. In a ruling last month, the Board of Immigration Appeals found there is ample evidence General Vides was complicit in the rape and murder of four U.S. churchwomen in 1980, as well as the torture of political prisoners. He is the highest-ranking foreign military leader to be deported under a 2004 law barring human rights violators from U.S. soil. Vides was a close U.S. government ally during his stint as defense minister for the Salvadoran junta between 1983 and 1989. The U.S. government has moved to deport another Salvadoran general wanted in Spain. A U.N. inquiry has named Inocente Orlando Montano as among the top military officials who approved the murder plot that led to the 1989 slaying of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and the housekeeper’s daughter. The Jesuits had been outspoken advocates for the poor and critics of human rights abuses committed by the U.S.-backed ARENA government. Prosecutors say he came to the United States in part to avoid being brought to justice for the Jesuits’ murders. He is among 20 Salvadoran officials who have been indicted by a Spanish court.

After Cop’s Shooting of Unarmed Walter Scott Caught on Video, New Calls for Body Cameras on Police

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-10

The murder charges filed against North Charleston police officer Michael Slager for fatally shooting Walter Scott has reignited debate over whether officers should wear body cameras. Police were forced to change their story that Slager fired his gun because he feared for his safety after Feidin Santana came forward with video of the encounter he filmed on his cell phone. The video shows Slager fired eight times as Scott was running away from him. The original police report said Scott took Slager’s taser and that officers tried to revive him with CPR. The video appears to show neither claim is true. On Wednesday, North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey announced a new order for police body cameras. Today, investigators are expected to release the dash-cam video from Slager’s patrol car. Many cities have installed cameras in their patrol cars. The Police Executive Research Forum surveyed police departments in 2013 and found about a quarter of respondents required body cameras. We are joined by Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst with the Speech, Privacy and Technology Project at the American Civil Liberties Union. Stanley wrote the 2013 report, “Police Body-Mounted Cameras: With Right Policies in Place, a Win For All,” and updated it this year with new ways to address civil rights concerns.

Mumia Abu-Jamal Returned to Prison After Hospitalization

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-06

Imprisoned journalist and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal has been transferred back to prison after he was taken to the intensive care unit at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, following a blackout from diabetic shock. Abu-Jamal’s supporters said he was kept under heavy guard and isolated from visitors in the hospital. Following an international outcry, close relatives including his brother, Keith Cook, were allowed to visit. Keith Cook: “Mumia was shackled to the bed. Matter of fact, there were two policemen in the room and three outside the door, so you couldn’t talk about anything you didn’t want them to hear. That was clear. When I saw him, he ate lunch in front of me, I helped him cut the meat. He had one arm with handcuffs on it, and needle in the other arm with a drip for insulin. He was smiling. It was obvious he was weak and not his normal self. But he did have a smile on his face and cracked a couple jokes. So his sense of humor was there, but it was clear he was in a lot of pain. The report the following day was that he was doing worse.” Abu-Jamal has been moved back to the infirmary at SCI Mahanoy prison in Frackville, Pennsylvania, where he was not allowed visitors Thursday. His supporters plan to rally at the prison today to demand he be allowed to receive medical care from doctors outside the facility. They say authorities may have withheld from Abu-Jamal details about blood tests that could have indicated he was suffering from diabetes. Democracy Now

As NYU Expands Into Abu Dhabi, UAE Bars Professor Researching Migrant Worker Abuse 

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-06

The United Arab Emirates has barred New York University professor Andrew Ross from entering the country after he published research about migrant workers and labor abuse in the Gulf State. Ross learned of the ban after arriving at the airport in New York, where he was set to board a flight to continue his research in the UAE, a close U.S. ally. Now it has emerged that a private investigator was also hired to target him and a New York Times reporter who wrote the expose on workers at NYU’s Abu Dhabi campus facing harsh conditions. Ross, who serves as president of NYU’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors, joins us to discuss the case. Democracy Now!,

20 Years in Prison for Miscarrying? The Case of Purvi Patel & the Criminalization of Pregnancy

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-06

While Indiana has been in the spotlight over its new anti-LGBT “religious freedom” law, another state controversy is brewing. On Monday, Purvi Patel became the first person in U.S. history sentenced to prison for feticide for what the state said was an attempt to end her own pregnancy. While Patel says she had a miscarriage, delivering a stillborn fetus, prosecutors accused her of taking drugs to induce an abortion, even though no drugs were found in her system. They also used a discredited test to claim the fetus was born alive. Patel was sentenced to 20 years in prison. We look at her case amidst the rising tide of anti-choice laws and the criminalization of pregnancy with Lynn Paltrow, founder and executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.

After Warmest Winter, Drought-Stricken California Limits Water But Exempts Thirstiest Big Growers

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-06

As California’s record drought continues, Gov. Jerry Brown has ordered residents and non-agricultural businesses to cut water use by 25 percent in the first mandatory statewide reduction in the state’s history. One group not facing restrictions under the new rules is big agriculture, which uses about 80 percent of California’s water. The group Food & Water Watch California has criticized Brown for not capping water usage by oil extraction industries and corporate farms, which grow water-intensive crops such as almonds and pistachios, most of which are exported out of state and overseas. Studies show the current drought, which has intensified over the past four years, is the worst California has seen in at least 120 years. Some suggest it is the region’s worst drought in more than a thousand years. This comes after California witnessed the warmest winter on record. We speak with environmental reporter Mark Hertsgaard, author of the book, “Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth.” Democracy Now!

“My Lai Revisited: 47 Years Later, Seymour Hersh Travels to Vietnam Site of U.S. Massacre He Exposed “

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-26

 Fifty years after the U.S. ground invasion of Vietnam began, we look back at the 1968 My Lai massacre, when American troops killed hundreds of civilians. Journalist Seymour Hersh broke the story of the massacre and cover-up, winning a Pulitzer Prize for his work. But Hersh never actually went there — he interviewed soldiers stateside. Forty-seven years later, he recently traveled to My Lai for the first time, which he documents in a new article for The New Yorker, “The Scene of the Crime: A Reporter’s Journey to My Lai and the Secrets of the Past.” Hersh joins us to discuss how he exposed the massacre nearly five decades ago and what it was like to visit My Lai for the first time.

“State Department Announces New “Long-standing” Policy Against Backing Coups”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-11

After Venezuela accused the United States of plotting another coup, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki rejected the claim as “ludicrous.” She said, “As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by non-constitutional means.” The response from reporters may surprise you. On Democracy Now!, we get reaction from Miguel Tinker Salas, professor at Pomona College and author of “The Enduring Legacy: Oil, Culture, and Society in Venezuela” and the forthcoming book, “Venezuela: What Everyone Needs to Know

Millions Could Lose Obamacare Coverage as Supreme Court Weighs Dubious Koch-Backed Case

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-03-05

The U.S. Supreme Court has heard arguments in a new challenge to the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.” The Competitive Enterprise Institute, backed by the billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, sued the government over an aspect of the law dealing with tax subsidies. The legal question before the court focuses on a four-word phrase in the Affordable Care Act, which says subsidies are available to those buying insurance on exchanges “established by the state.” Plaintiffs claim the wording does not include some 7.5 million people in 34 states who get their insurance through federal exchanges, after their states declined to run exchanges of their own. If the government loses the case, millions of people would lose the subsidies needed to help pay for private health insurance. Justices appeared sharply divide during Wednesday’s arguments, and a decision is expected by late June. We are joined by Ian Millhiser, who attended Wednesday’s court hearing. He is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, editor of ThinkProgress Justice, and author of the forthcoming book, “Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted.

ISIS war in Syria: US to arm rebels with pickups fitted with machine guns and GPS

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

Turkey and the United States signed an agreement last week to later this year begin training and equipping moderate Syrian rebel forces to battle Islamic State fighters. With airstrikes, the U.S. successfully helped Kurdish soldiers drive fighters from the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, from the northern Syrian city of Kobani in January. The U.S. now plans to adopt a similar model and train moderate Syrian rebel forces. The Pentagon says the training will begin in mid-to-late March in Jordan, while a second training site will open in Turkey later this year. Additional training sites may be launched in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The Pentagon says it hopes to train 3,000 Syrian rebels by the end of this year. Teams of four to six rebels will be given a Toyota Hi-Lux pickup truck fitted with a machine gun as well as a GPS tracking system. The small fighting teams may also be provided mortars. The communication and tracking equipment on each truck could allow rebels to request air support from the U.S. just as Kurdish forces did in Kobani when they called upon American B-1 bombers for aid against ISIS militants. The United States remains unsure about how much it wants to be involved in Syria though, as the Obama administration is hesitant about waging warfare against the Syrian regime and militant opposition groups other than ISIS. While the Central Intelligence Agency has run a program to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels for the last several years, its program remained limited and covert. The new agreement has now publicly pledged American support for Syrian rebel forces in their fight against ISIS.

Sexually assaulted former Air Force captain Jamie Brunette driven to suicide, family say

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

Sexually assaulted former Air Force captain Jamie Brunette driven to suicide, family say Family members of an Air Force Reserve captain who apparently committed suicide earlier this month believe she was sexually assaulted during her time in Afghanistan. Tampa, Florida police found former Air Force Captain Jamie Brunette’s dead body in the back of her locked sedan near her apartment on February 9th. They say the 30-year-old bought the suicide weapon, a Smith & Wesson .380, six months ago. Brunette had been on active duty for 11 years before joining the Air Force Reserves last June. Jackie Leverich, Brunette’s oldest sister says she noticed something was different about Brunnette while they were both attending their sister’s wedding. While she doesn’t have any proof, Leverich, who’s on active duty with the Coast Guard, says she believes her sister was sexually assaulted while she served in Afghanistan. Two weeks before her suicide, Brunette ended her relationship with her boyfriend. The week before her death, Brunette seemed in good spirits and posted photos to Facebook, of the fitness studio she was building. Friends and family say she was excited to be a owner/instructor of her new business venture. While he failed to provide details, when referring to a possible incident, Brunette’s business partner, Lt. Col Kurt Spranger, told the Tampa Tribune that “something happened, something that should never happen to a human”. A ‘Go Fund Me’ page has been set up for Brunette’s funeral.

Mayor 1%” Rahm Emanuel of Chicago Faces Progressive Challenge in Heated Bid for Re-election 

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-24

The battle between Rahm Emanuel — a Democrat known as “Mayor 1 Percent” — and a host of challengers has reached a fever pitch in Chicago. Emanuel is struggling to keep his seat when voters head to the polls on Tuesday. Opponents say he has failed to improve the city’s schools and address gun violence. Emanuel’s re-election campaign has the endorsement of his former boss, President Obama, and a war chest of more than $15 million — about four times the amount raised by his four opponents. Most of his funds come from about 100 donors. Emanuel’s closest rival is Jesús “Chuy” García, a county commissioner who has support from the Chicago Teachers Union and other labor and progressive groups. We speak with Rick Perlstein, a Chicago-based reporter and author of several books, including “The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan” and the bestseller, “Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America.

“Watch Obama’s full speech on war powers resolution”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-11

President Obama on Wednesday sent Congress a resolution to authorize use of military force against the Islamic State militants. He said in a televised address that the resolution is not meant to commit ground forces to the fight, but to give the military the flexibility to respond to “unforeseen circumstances” for a period of three years.
