So “Corey Booker” is a Crook just like the rest of em…

I thought he was Newark’s night and shining armor? I thought he was able to leap tall buildings by a single bound? I thought he was faster than a speeding bullet? Especially when he was all over Newark during last year’s snow storm, aiding the elderly and helping Newark residents get plowed out. But it turns out Newark Mayor Corey Booker, is a shyster just like the rest of them.

Chaos and confusion broke out last Wednesday (November 21) in a Newark city council meeting when Mayor Booker, did some dirty political maneuvering to break a tie vote between John Sharpe James by making the deciding vote with his council allies for Shanique Davis Speight (inset photo), his longtime friend.  Booker’s actions caused a near-riot in city hall and Newark residents, in conjunction with union thugz, rushed the stage and lunged at the Booker’s new council crony, Shanique Davis Speight.

After weeks of jockeying for Rep. Donald Payne’s successor, Booker made an unprecedented personal appearance to cast the deciding vote with his council allies for Shanique Davis Speight, despite the angry objections of Newark residents.

One faction of the council wanted to appoint former Newark Mayor Sharpe James’ son, John Sharpe James, who is a vocal opponent of Corey Booker, while another faction allied with Booker preferred Shanique Davis Speight, making the vote between the two; a tie.

After the vote, residents who opposed Speight’s appointment and Corey Booker’s power play started chanting “Cory’s gotta go!” while Muhammad a union leader, who is a male, led a mob and “stormed the dais and appeared to lunge toward Speight,” who was with her “grade-school-age son.” Officers had to douse Muhammad and other residents with pepper spray to restrain them from doing more damage.

Mayor Booker was criticized for staying in a back room with his staff to avoid the mob scene. If he had nothing to hide, he would have addressed the people boldly; and stood by his position and his decision.

Sounds like Corey Booker’s “star is fading fast” and his heroic efforts of supposedly saving his neighbor from her burning home is a thing of the past.

New Birth is having an Anniversary celebration but…you have to bring your own food!!!

I’m not lying Ceo family…New Birth Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga is celebrating their pastor (Eddie Long’s) 25th Pastoral Anniversary and they’re asking their members to “BYOF” – Bring Your Own Food!!!! I’ve underlined it in red on the flyer above for all to see the reference with their very own eyes.

The flyer advertising the event at New Birth Baptist lists ticket prices at $25 for adults and $10 for children. Yes and in addition to “bringing your own food”, they are also charging their members to enter the celebration as well.

This is a far cry from the lavish events New Birth have held in the past especially since the basis of Eddie Long’s teachings are on prosperity gospel.

New Birth was rocked by scandal last year after Bishop Eddie Long was forced to settle sexual misconduct lawsuits brought against him by five young men [click here and/or search Eddie Long in the search engine if you missed that].

When it’s not of God, it is yet BUT for a season!

Evelyn & Chad more publicity for their reality…

They will do anything I guess, to promote their wacked reality show, which will premier September 3 on VH1. I don’t even believe their relationship is real. I don’t easily fall for a hype that is just that., HYPE: But Evelyn and Chad got into a fight over a condom receipt found in the couple’s sports car. Chad is now sitting in a Florida County jail while Evelyn is healing from stitches to her forehead.


Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1′s “Basketball Wives.”

Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, says the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead.

Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several house and her injury required stitches.

According to our sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple’s Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued.

We’re told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident.

Johnson is reportedly still in custody and will have to go before a judge before he can be released.

Johnson and Lozada were married last month (July 4) in Miami after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.

“Bishop E. Bernard Jordan Exchanges The Word For Cash”

This is something I knew already but recieved the following email from a loyal “Ceo blog” reader who decided to put the fake “money-hungry” prophet on blast.

Dearest Tracy,

Just when you think you have heard it all, here comes Bishop E. Bernard Jordan and his army of so-called prophets. The issues with the “Prophetic Ministry” are both alarming and deceptive as many desperate believers are taken advantage of by men and women like Bishop Jordan. With generic prophecies and new age rhetoric, Bishop Jordan has gotten filthy rich off the hopes of the poor and the sick.

The “prophetic word for cash scheme” has actually been around for a while, even dating back to the time of Paul’s ministry. It was so popular at the time that even when Paul publicly rebuked a psychic / mystic, who was then beaten and thrown in jail (Acts Chapter 16:16-24)…

Like many of you, I too have sat up late at night flipping through the channels only to discover Bishop Jordan on BET offering ridiculously vague prophecies in exchange for a donation of any size. How did we as the Body of Christ go from the Great Prophets of the Bible like Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel to Bishop Jordan, Benny Hinn, and Bishop Clarence E. McClendon?

…Men like Bernard Jordan has succeeded in making a mockery of this most Holy appointment due in part to the fact that they have appointed themselves to the role of a Prophet. Common sense would tell us that God would not use a true prophet to issue a prophetic word that sounds something like this:

“I am feeling in my spirit the number 34 or 3 & 4 which means that you may want to sow a seed of $34 dollars because someone in your life who is 34 years old could be in danger.”

Really Bernard Jordan? Really!

We have reached the point in biblical history whereas the fear of the Lord has dissipated and we’re left with preachers who are for entertainment purposes only and E. Bernard Jordan is one of them..

Referring to a chapter from my book, “Conversations Of A Sistah”, the reader concluded: “If you wanna “hustle” then sell drugs, go be a male prostitute, do a check scam, but don’t take advantage of people’s spirituality by trying to make a dollar off of their beliefs.”

Wow and…Amen!
