‘Just for Jesus’ founder arrested twice in two weeks

By Theresa Schmidt –
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) –
He is the founder of the “Just for Jesus” rallies — and now, James Bertrand is in more trouble with the law. He has been arrested twice in the last two weeks.

Bertrand was known for his “Just for Jesus” rallies but over the last eight months, Bertrand has been arrested at least five times — most recently, Monday.

Westlake authorities were called to a disturbance at a house. They arrested and booked Bertrand for possession of crack cocaine and drug distribution.

The week before, Calcasieu Chief Deputy Stitch Guillory said Bertrand was arrested in a local casino.

“Our office was contacted that there was a disturbance in Mr. Bertrand’s room. Once our deputies responded there, while investigating, crack cocaine and powdered cocaine was found inside the room,” said Guillory.

When arrested in January for possession of crack cocaine, Bertrand’s address was 3945 South Blue Sage Road on the golf course at Graywood, right at the 9th green. Right now, the house is vacant though there is a Camaro parked in the driveway.

Bertrand’s legal troubles go beyond drug charges. His “No Fear Auto” car dealership is closed — and a notice on the door indicates it has been seized along with his inventory of vehicles.

It’s all shocking to former supporter Jaimi Hansen who volunteered for “Just for Jesus” and even bought a car from Bertrand.

“Six months later, after I bought the car, it broke down. It started smoking so I called him up. ‘Oh yeah, bring it in. I’ll take a look at it.’ He held my car for about two weeks and charged me $600 to get it fixed. He said, ‘Well, I’ll, since you’re such a good person and you do volunteer work for me, I’ll only charge you $400.’ I haven’t gotten my title back from him, even after I paid my car off,” said Hansen.

Hansen said it’s caused her to question her beliefs.

“I’m beginning to re-think my faith because some of these pastors, they just want money,” said Hansen.

At last word, Bertrand was in jail with bond set at $50,000.

Bertrand’s Facebook page lists him as former pastor at Power Church International.

Reebok Drops Endorsement for Hip Hop Artist over Date Rape Song Lyrics

Reebok has ended its relationship with Rick Ross following heavy criticism of lyrics by the rapper considered by some to promote rape.

“Reebok holds our partners to a high standard and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so,” the sneaker brand said in a statement Thursday.

Ross formally apologized for his lyrics on Rocko’s song “U.O.E.N.O.” in a tweet last week. It came the same day a women’s group, UltraViolet, protested outside of one Reebok’s stores in New York.

“I don’t condone rape. Apologies for the lyric interpreted as rape,” Ross’ tweet said.

In Rocko’s song, Ross raps about giving a woman the drug MDMA, known as Molly, and having his way with her. The lyrics say: “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”

Reebok added that “we are very disappointed (Ross) has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue.”

End Times: North Korea may have nuclear missile

by on Apr.11, 2013, under African-American Community, Leadership, World News

(CNN) — A study just completed by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency says North Korea may have nuclear weapons that could be delivered by ballistic missiles, a congressman said Thursday.

The revelation came from Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado, during a House Armed Services Committee hearing.

“Quoting from the unclassified portion, which I believe has not yet been made public, they say, quote, ‘DIA assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivering by ballistic missiles. However, the reliability will be low.'” Lamborn told Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, who was testifying before the committee.

Lamborn asked Dempsey whether he agreed with the assessment. Dempsey appeared to be caught off guard.

“Well, I haven’t seen it,” Dempsey replied. “And you said it’s not publicly released, so I — I choose not to comment on it.”

North Korea’s missile capabilities

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon later told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “We do not have any independent information to verify” the DIA study’s assessment.

Is North Korea serious about military action? Or is it just testing the world?

A missile had been briefly raised to an upright firing position, stoking concerns that a launch is imminent, a U.S. official told CNN on Thursday.

Later, another U.S. official said it’s been tucked back into its launcher.

This comes amid another round of daily tough talk from the North. A government agency is quoted by the state-run media as saying that “war can break out any moment.”

After meeting privately with Ban in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama called on North Korea to tone down the rhetoric.

“We agree now is the time for North Korea to end the kind of belligerent approach they have been taking and try to lower temperatures,” Obama said during a photo opportunity. “No one wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula.”

Ban called on Chinese diplomats to “exercise their leadership and influence” with North Korea to reduce tensions.

The latest move by the North could signify that a much-feared launch is less imminent. It could also mean the government was testing the equipment.

The first U.S. official cautioned that the raising of the missile could have been just a trial run to ensure the equipment works or an effort to “mess” with the United States and the allies that are watching for a launch at any time.

So far, South Koreans — who’ve heard the cross-border bombast before — are taking the swagger in stride. Washington regards much of the North’s saber rattling as bluster.

But no one is taking any chances as the daily clamor of threats from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s government shows no sign of letting up.

War of words escalates – Timeline of a crisis

The official declined to specify what type of intelligence led the United States to conclude the medium-range missile — a Musudan — was in a firing position.

The Musudan is an untested weapon that South Korea says has a range as far as 3,500 kilometers (2,175 miles).

It could reach as far as Guam, a Western Pacific territory that is home to U.S. naval and air bases, and where the United States recently said it was placing missile defense systems.

The United States and South Korean militaries have been monitoring the movements of mobile ballistic missiles on the east coast of North Korea. Japan has deployed defense systems.

The mood in South Korea? ‘Very ordinary’

Life is generally continuing as normal in the region, however, despite the North’s barrage of recent threats, which have included warnings to foreigners on the peninsula about their safety in the event of conflict.

South Koreans, who have experienced decades of North Korean rage and posturing — and occasional localized attacks — have gone about their daily business without alarm.

“South Korea has been living under such threats from the past, and we are always prepared for it,” South Korean Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae told CNN Wednesday. He called the current climate “a very ordinary situation.”

South urges dialogue over industrial zone

The difficulties at the Kaesong industrial zone, a key symbol of inter-Korean cooperation, are among the few tangible signs of the tensions.

Pyongyang repeated a threat to permanently close the industrial zone, which it jointly operates with the South, accusing South Korean President Park Geun-hye of putting the manufacturing complex at risk.

The South Korean government, meanwhile, urged Pyongyang to work to resolve the situation through dialogue.

“Pyongyang should come to the bargaining table immediately,” Ryoo said.

North Korea has pulled its more than 50,000 workers out of the complex, which is on the northern side of the heavily fortified border that divides the two Koreas, and blocked personnel and supply trucks from entering it from South Korea.

In a statement reported Thursday by state-run media, the North Korean government said that what happens at the complex in the coming days “entirely depends on the attitude of the South Korean authorities.”

DMZ: Tensions high at knife-edge of Korean conflict

U.S. intelligence cites direct threats

The dangers posed by North Korea came up Thursday at a House Intelligence Committee hearing about worldwide threats.

James R. Clapper, director of U.S. national intelligence, said the United States believes the primary objective of Kim’s bellicose rhetoric is to “consolidate and affirm his power” and to show he is “in control of North Korea.”

Clapper said he doesn’t think Kim “has much of an endgame” other than to get recognition from the world as a nuclear power which “entitles him to negotiation, accommodation and, presumably, aid.”

But in a statement for the record before the committee, Clapper reiterated that the nation’s “nuclear weapons and missile programs pose a serious threat to the United States and to the security environment in East Asia.”

Since December, North Korea has put a satellite in orbit atop a long-range rocket; conducted a nuclear bomb test, its third since 2006; and claimed to be prepared for pre-emptive nuclear attacks on the United States, though most analysts believe it does not yet have that capability.

Its most recent nuclear test, in February, resulted in tougher U.N. sanctions, which infuriated Pyongyang, prompting it to sharpen its threats.

Annual military exercises in South Korea by U.S. and South Korean troops, which often upset the North, have added to the tensions, especially when the United States drew attention to shows of strength such as a practice mission by B-2 stealth bombers.

Black Women Set Your House In Order: Tatiana Jamila AKA: Silly Women #1

by on Apr.11, 2013, under African-American Community, Leadership

I’m getting ready to go off on these young black immature sisters: These are what the bible calls silly women. Its a crop of them that will be around in the end-times spreading disease and negativity, and ignorance and a Spirit of Dumb. Lazy Good for nothing broads, laying on their back freaking and showing all they goodies on fabcebook, and twitter and instagram, got thirsty brothers following em….SMH….First Silly Women Tatiana Jamila

Tatiana Jamila - Chickenhead Hoe, wanting attention, got her clevage out

“For of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with various lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” – 2 Timothy 3:6-7 – King James Version

I hope the spirit of dumb broad is reading this, in case you don’t understand the verse, let me break it down in translation for you:

“For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.” – 2 Timothy 3:6-7 – ESV

“They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires (Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.)” – 2 Timothy 3:6-7 – NLT

Proverbs 6:25 "Don't lust for her beauty. Don't let her coy glances seduce you."

Black Men, stop following and begging these simple minded low-self-esteem women around on facebook and youtube, and instagram, and twitter thinking you are gonna get you some butt. Its females like this that want attention, she doesnt want a man, she wants a NIGGA! She can’t handle a man, and probably never will!

Proverbs 7

1 My son, keep my words,
And treasure my commands within you.
2 Keep my commands and live,
And my law as the apple of your eye.
3 Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
And call understanding your nearest kin,
5 That they may keep you from the immoral woman,
From the seductress who flatters with her words.
The Crafty Harlot

6 For at the window of my house
I looked through my lattice,
7 And saw among the simple,
I perceived among the youths,
A young man devoid of understanding,
8 Passing along the street near her corner;
And he took the path to her house
9 In the twilight, in the evening,
In the black and dark night.
10 And there a woman met him,
With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.
11 She was loud and rebellious,
Her feet would not stay at home.
12 At times she was outside, at times in the open square,
Lurking at every corner.
13 So she caught him and kissed him;
With an impudent face she said to him:
14 “I have peace offerings with me;
Today I have paid my vows.
15 So I came out to meet you,
Diligently to seek your face,
And I have found you.
16 I have spread my bed with tapestry,
Colored coverings of Egyptian linen.
17 I have perfumed my bed
With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until morning;
Let us delight ourselves with love.
19 For my husband is not at home;
He has gone on a long journey;
20 He has taken a bag of money with him,
And will come home on the appointed day.”
21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield,
With her flattering lips she seduced him.
22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter,
Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks,[a]
23 Till an arrow struck his liver.
As a bird hastens to the snare,
He did not know it would cost his life.
24 Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
26 For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
27 Her house is the way to hell,[b]
Descending to the chambers of death.
