The Alternative (Real) Pride Power List 2015

(Alternative) Pride Power

list 100, 2015

Every year, after the London Pride events in June, a list arrives celebrating and ranking the top 100 influential forces or do-gooders for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, trans-gender and community equalities for LGBT regions of the country.

Usually this list has had an interesting and respectful collection of such people, but the 2015 ‘Pride Power’ list, which seems to change its name every year, has proven to be somewhat of an upsetting embarrassment to all LGBT communities.

Mis-represented, omitted and influences have been shelved for more ‘traditional television personalities who actually do nothing to support, influence or highlight community aspects. Many have a ‘secret panel’ where some people choose their favourites for the list. Not exactly moving in the direction it should be and actually neglecting who has REALLY made a difference in the world of equality for all.

Not every man who helps equality with women, race, gender and sexuality is ‘a gay.’ Cheating, depravity and ‘on TV’ idiots prancing around like Rylan Clark, who also had it off with a man who was on the TV show he presented, whose now partner had a boyfriend at that time, do not scream influence. Nor does it move gays into a forward position. Even gays are upset with this listing. Clark was never reprimanded for his abuse and break-up of such couple. Something every gay man should be seen as even though ‘real’ non-celebrities are nothing of the sort? Lunacy. This is one example of the choices that affect and disassociate the real LGBT communities with office listing desk writers unaccompanied to the real feeling of such a society.

So, once again, where others fails (for more than one or two years) it is up to FalseFabs to intervene and address the ‘Proper’ Pride Power 2015 list. June/July’s original release, which has stopped number rankings, has still managed to upset those in the gay communities, to which we have links, just as many other sectors and sources. So here is the alternative and accurate 2015 Pride Power List. We are available for list creation bookings, should anyone wish to liaise on this or many other subjects.

The list is usually printed in The Guardian newspaper, as supplement. Though an alternative has been drafted since recognition and inclusion of those omitted time and again, inclusive on the part of LGBT voices of the same expression has led this list creation. All are adequately placed, in the correct manner.

These are actual influencers, writers, personalities and helpers of equality for all. Not a list of gay love in’s. And yes, some straight people can be included.

Well, here it is.

MH17 destroyed. What are the details?

Malaysian aircraft destroyed killing hundreds of innocent victims over Ukraine airspace.

Are Russia to blame?

Ukraine Plane

By now the world has all heard of the shocking events that took place on Thursday involving airline flight MH17. The airliner, which was shot out of the sky, crashed and killed all 298 people on board. The crash site landed over Eastern Ukraine, in the midst of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Many forces believe that pro-Russian separatists were to blame for the downing of the aircraft, murdering its crew. The flight was on course from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The majority of citizens on board were Dutch. One was dual American. The others include 43 Malaysians (including 15 crew), 27 Australians, 12 Indonesians and 10 Britons (including one with dual South African nationality), four Germans, four Belgians, three from the Philippines, and one each from Canada and New Zealand.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied being at fault nor any involvement with Russia and added Ukraine “bears responsibility” for the crash. The Ukrainian government claim the pro-Russian rebels removed 38 bodies from the crash site leading to calls of cover ups.

The separatists were also accused of stealing luggage from the deceased crash victims. They also took the black box recorder and said it was “on its way to Moscow.” Why Moscow are receiving the box as well as amid fears of evidence tampering casts a dangerous light on Russia and its interactions with the world in these conflicting times.

putin meeting

The plane had also been carrying a UN worker and officials specialising in the AIDS health problem which casts another shadow over Russia with their recent abuses to gay citizens and assumption all gay men carry the predicament.

Ukrainian officials called it “an act of terrorism” and calls for Europe to renew its position with Russia has been mentioned.

It is believed the separatists had significant technology to shoot down the plane traced back to exclusive Russian military systems.

President Obama instantly called President Putin to discuss the situation briefly.

Whilst Putin may choose to deny the issues at hand, and in the case with the benefit of the doubt, if Russia is at fault, it needs to take responsibility rather than deny everything said towards the nation as a general routine.

Putin has had months of time to de-escalate the Ukrainian crisis and why this still continues is amazing to all among the world. Putin can call off the rebels at any time and should do so.

If this is a ‘Cold War resurgence’ of recapturing all the previous countries that sought independence from Russia should be left alone and respected. Building relationships with them as communicate countries is what is needed, not to use methods of fear to scare the world or neighbouring countries. This will only ever make Russia and Putin look weak, something they think responsibility would do instead.

What President Putin fails to understand is that any actions from pro-Russian separatists directly affect Russia and its influence on them. Reports claim the separatists were trained by Russian troops and are being used to conduct the fighting in Ukraine to directly shift full Russian blame.

The evening following the crash, on Friday, totalitarian dictator David Cameron was enjoying himself in London’s glitzy West End at the theatre watching the play Warhorse. He was said to have been informed of the on-going details.

Amid such world crisis Cameron watches theatre plays instead on night out.

Amid such world crisis David Cameron watches theatre plays instead on night out.

Russia had also been accused of using propagandist methods on its television news station Russia Today, which used to be independent, now said to be influenced by the Kremlin instead. One journalist quit the station over its treatment of the news story.

Pro-Russian separatists claim the Ukrainian forces took down the aircraft.

Inspectors are at the crash site whilst over help to give the deceased as dignified a death as possible are helping retrieve the bodies.

In recent months Malaysia and its airlines have been dogged with trauma after previous flight MH370 crashed off the coast of Australia. The flight remains an unsolved mystery. Its black box flight recorder has not been located and is feared to have lost all its data.

Vladimir Putin’s real life game of Risk is a major one indeed. Putin needs to understand that he does not have to accept the world’s decisions on everything, however the communist state must be able to communicate with the rest of the world despite certain country principals involving democracy and such others. If Putin can show he is a world leader that can effectively stand tall with other nations than impose on them, then he will be respected and considered when making suggestive influence on decisions of the world. Currently, Putin has no trust, respect and effectively with the world, which it spent over forty plus and even centuries to rebuild a communicative platform. Whatever the case, Putin needs to think and act accordingly that will change course in a fair and concise manner that allows everyone to live their lives their way, including Russians. Running around with weaponry only makes a country look weaker by the day, especially if it can stop the fighting at the click of its fingers.

The defamation of a journalist

With the recent democratic free speech laws up in the air in Great Britain, politicians and security agents are now working together to defame journalism.

The case of David Miranda, partner of the journalist Glenn Greenwald, who revealed the Edward Snowden leaks in The Guardian newspaper, was detained under section 7 of the terrorism act as he was boarding a flight to his home in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

miranda

‘Terrorist’ David Miranda

British government and the Home Office were said to have given the green light to arrest Mr. Miranda knowing full well he was not a terrorist. His crime? He had hold of some Snowden documents.

Great Britain, which is now using the only American excuse of “national security” to apprehend someone gave a “heads up” to NSA while David Cameron, who claimed we live in a Democracy, and Home Secretary Theresa May had no involvement they claim, but later revealed they were informed. Cameron, on his third holiday in recent months in Cornwall, gave the order, allegedly. Two GCHQ officials watched as media files where destroyed by the Guardian under an order from government and police.

Cameron was said to be –

  • David Cameron ‘kept abreast’ of detention of David Miranda, sources say
  • Theresa May briefed because police feared he carried ‘stolen information’
  • Brazilian was taken into custody by officials as he passed through Heathrow
  • U.S. President Barack Obama was also given ‘heads-up’ before he was taken
  • Scotland Yard said detention was ‘legally and procedurally sound’
  • The 28-year-old was held while on way home to Rio de Janeiro from Berlin
  • Mr Miranda is to launch a civil action over his detention
  • London agents took his drives, a computer – and even a video game
  • Guardian editor claims British agents entered newspaper’s London office

(SOURCE: usa.onlinenigeria.com)

So what does this do for the sector of Journalism?

The statement from arresting officials of Miranda, a freelance journalist, claimed he was doing journalistic work but not a journalist in order to defame him to send a message of fear to all journalists in line with the government.

Miranda was held for 9 hours under the Terrorism Act. Lord Falconer, former British lord chancellor who helped bring in the Terrorism Act 2000 has added “this was not what the law was intended for.”

Home Secretary Theresa May

Every newspaper has a political agenda. All newspapers in Great Britain, except for the Guardian (Liberal) and the Daily Mirror (Labour) support the Conservative Party and carefully framework propaganda in their favour to win general elections.

David Cameron, Conservative, cannot control those two papers and therefore used regulation or law to clamp down and pressurise the reporting. Now, Cameron, who is trying to mimic Barack Obama, who is the most popular person in the world, hopes crawling to American agencies will help strengthen their bond.

ed snowden

Britain is said to spy on American citizens and America spies on Britain and both feed the information back to one another as they cannot spy on each other.

obama

Under Pressure.

NSA is also said to be working with data collection from Google and Apple.

By using spying methods and fear to collect information has a damning effect on the business of journalism and classing someone as not a journalist because they are not at a working title is shameful. Defaming journo’s based on political ideology and agenda’s to win elections is just as corrupt as Robert Mugabe, the recent Egyptian uprising and the claims of Vladimir Putin fixing elections.

Without journalists to report on the real issues and secrets to allow politicians to craft laws to slam them down and hide their corruption is nowhere near a democracy and ever closer to a Fascist state. After the Snowden files were destroy by police, The Guardian newspaper was dictated not to report anymore stories that could “endanger lives under national security.” This should also tell us something sinister. Just how damning and intrusive was the spying carried out by NSA on worldwide nations.

dave cam holiday

Sun kissed Cameron

Currently, in a totalitarian state, filled with surveillance and political scandal, journalists are needed more than ever. The defaming of someone not at a working title is disgusting seeing as the politicians and industry make it very difficult to hire someone in the field because they need personal lapdogs to win elections with favourable stories and abuse of the opposition, which also cripples the notion of journalism.

gestapo80

Politicians should be working in unison with journalists allowing them to report stories as is their job and will move the economy forward. Instead the image presented is a personal hitman in disguise, especially after police corruption was exposed, including stealing identities of dead children.

The Gestapo, Hitler’s personal army invaded ordinary citizens homes and premises in secret, at night to abuse, remove and contain secrets nearing the Second World War.

According to historian Rupert Butler, “From its creation in 1933 until its death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo…” (Source: WIkipedia)

Britain continues to remain broken and never independent.

London 2012, Day 6 Results

London 2012, Day 6:

Kay-ak Kingdom,

Britannia rule the waves!

Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott win gold

Paddle power in doubles Canoe Slalom flung Great Britain into first place to gain a gold medal in the C2 kayaking collision. Baillie and Stott took the honours whilst seeing off strong competition from… Great Britain! Britain won both gold and silver in the event with David Florence and Essex native Richard Hounslow take second. Slovakian twins Pavol and Peter Hochschorner received bronze.

Team GB have started their ascension to medal ownership, with a gold in the shooting events. Twenty five year old Peter Wilson shot 188 marks earning the golden medal. Swede Hakan Dahlby was overjoyed with silver at 186 points, Russia and Kuwait participated in pistols at not so near dawn, in a shoot off to claim the bronze bonanza, both tied at 185. The youthful Brit, with pin point accuracy, was greeted by his father afterwards in a mass celebration of passion.

Judo witnessed Gemma Gibbons successfully fell competition from France, by an Ippon manoeuvre in a respected outing by both in the 78kg weighting. Gibbons advanced to the next stage, unsuccessful to Kayla Harrison of Team USA, who hadn’t received medal honours for Judo for some time until today. Both overcame strong personal obstacles to lift gold and Gibbons with silver in a tremendous tussle at London’s Excel centre.

Gemma said the supportive crowd “were phenominal” and the event allowed her to “excced own expectation” while devoting the win to her mother as inspiration. Raising awareness for the sport and twelve years in the waiting proved a mother’s pride as well as the nation’s. Boyfriend Euan Burton, who sailed out yesterday congratulated Gemma, as did all of Great Britian.

Gemma’s silver

Altering the landscape, Gibbons is definitely proof how a real young female can shape as role models for sporting events, while motivating others in the process.

Kayla crunched Gold

4 man rowing followed from yesterday’s eventful successes, in the lightweight vessel, carrying South Africa to a gold medal in a valiant sweep of the sculls.

GB ended in second adding another silver to the proud nation in an exhaustive yet thrilling portrayal of passion. Denmark held bronze as the third team to cross the line.

Anthony Ogogo sparred with Ukraine’s number 1 Ievgen Khytrov, in the 75kg tournament at round sixteen to advance onwards.

Get on your bikes and ride!

It was all off to the Velodrome for some hypnotic swirlism on bicycles. Shaky starts began for Team GB’s Men’s sprint as one sadly stumbled to begin with, though British heart.

The relay team of Hinde, Kenny and Hoy handled the v-dome with precise speed swishing round to earn gold once more in a mass rise for Team GB’s golden pot. Great Britain own fifth place in the medals rankings currently.

Cycle supremo Sir Chris Hoy levels Sir Steve Redgrave in medal standings at six a piece, one behind Bradley Wiggins seventh earned yesterday.

It was, however terrible news for the females. Victoria Pendleton and Jess Varnish were disqualified from competition early on as problems with cross overs arose. Pendleton explained that sometimes sport can serve too “eager” at the home crowds, and not necessarily either’s fault generally. Pendleton will have individual races upcoming at London, though Varnish will have to wait till Rio in Brazil to contest.

The female Chinese team were dismayed at the final gridlock, riding to second, sparking fury as a mistake caused relegation, where Germany topped the podium with gold. South Africa took bronze. One of the Chinese team were rightly upset, however eventually took some time to re-compose her will. Complaints as to why China received medal honours but Team GB were relegated from competition were slightly confusing yet clarified briefly. View as a roughly a round robin tournament style. They lost their round of two countries battling, therefore were relegated, which meant they lost to the opposing team. In knockout stages, that means GB would not advance. China were in a position of deciding first and second. Hopefully this clarifies further.

GB’s dish of the day Mark Caven(dish) joined the Olympic announce team, where presenter Jake Humphrey earned the quote of the day, – “Super slow speed” in reference to slowing down the replay. Can anyone ever attain slow speed? Is speed not fast, as well as super? Only a thought.

Our Cav!

You spin me right round…

Stickler for rules, if you break them, whether misfortunate or not, you must abide by them. That is what makes us human, and also owners of a proud and British heart. You fall off your bike, you get back on, (proverbially.) Such is the heart of Great Britain. It was unfortunate.

Unfortunate events late last night saw an unfortunate member of the public killed by a shuttle bus carrying international journalists, as the games would not have wanted this to be as widespread as possible. Every journalist should strive to deliver the vehicle of news, just a shame he had to die to deliver it. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Daniel Harris, 28, who had received blame for not wearing a helmet.

It is easy to blame the deceased, they cannot answer. In order for a fair press, addressing issues causing it should be discussed not the individual’s unfortunate mishap. The bus driver also comes into question. So much for the G4S security measures.

Campaigning for safer bikers on streets, wear ya helmets!

The upsetting death has initiated a helmet wearing debate, which cyclist winner Bradley Wiggins urged fellow bike riders to put on a helmet for extra protection. The media misinterpreted Wiggins as asking for the helmet to become law. Wiggins is asking to raise awareness of safety.

David Cameron, who also joined royals Wills, Kate and Harry at the velodrome later on called it a “difficult situation.”

It was a good larff, wasn’t it?

London Mayor Boris Johnson, speaking with a helmet on, promoting London’s ‘Oyster’ card service, said “evidence is mixed” before cheerfully dismissing himself and riding off.

(Unofficial) Sir Boris of Johnson

Have you ever seen the roads in central London. As a pedestrian I have almost been knocked over by cyclists through no fault of my own, and some even jump red lights. (We may debate this after the Olympic’s fully.)

Dipping elsewhere…

Soni’s Swan Song

200m Women’s Breaststroke finals commenced, seeing Team USA’s Rebecca Soni enter first setting a new world record at 2.19.59 in an impressive defence of her own title. Satomi Suzuki of Japan and Iuliia Efimova of Russia secure second and third places. Not Soni’s last by a long shot.

200m Men’s Backstroke gave mass upset to Ryan Lochte as favourite, where Tyler Clary of America overtook in an un-intimidated run down the pool to lift himself a gold medal knocking off one notable competitor. Shockwaves continued as Ryosuke Irie swept past to claim the silver medal, leaving Lochte at third with Bronze. Clary also set an Olympic record in the process, at 1.53.41. We had a feeling of Clary in our mind, as we pick one non-mainstream name whilst watching, and saw something in Clary. Great job.

Almost made goggles of the day…

BBC presenter Clare Balding said it was “not about where you finish, it’s about time that you set” Thank you CB 🙂 The goggle bear was also there with Mark Foster and aussie fave Ian Thorpe, until Thorpie tried to knock him into the water! Tut Tut! 🙂

Goggled lion!

Women’s backstroke began with semi-finals as Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Franklin duked it out in the heats both for Team USA with Beisel tipping the time at 2.06.18 to Franklin’s 2.06.84.  Both proceed to the finals. Franklin’s pink goggles pleased us. It’s the goggles, trust me…

Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe came back from hardship of knee injury and pneumonia in March and May this year to prove a strong Olympian contender in her comeback.

Men’s 50m Freestyle Semis were also underway. Cullen Jones was a pick that sure enough drove home a 21.54 race, while Fratus of Brazil won the second heat.

Markus Deibler was next in line for the 200m Individual medley, as Chad Le Clos relinquished his place to concentrate on another race. Nothing wrong with realising what’s more important/where strengths lie further in.

Cool necklace, got anymore?

James Goddard qualified yesterday among keystone Michael Phelps and stalwart Lochte. Lochte proved a gentile sportsman after paragon Phelps made monumental history at the games, with a triple crown of his own, claiming his twentieth golden medal following from Athens, Beijing and now in London. Rigorous training paid off once more, at the most crucial point for the now new G20! He even had President Barack Obama (allegedly) on hold in a telephone call for congratulations. Epic feat. They had the green boots on…

Hey Michael, Barack here…

Phelps is most certainly the golden goggle guru.

The Golden Goggles!

He clocked 1.54.27. Lochte took silver as Hungary’s Cesh held Bronze.

Just as Team GB dominated the games earlier, Phelps plucked a turkey!

Women’s 100m freestyle saw Great Dane Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands rip through the water to wrest gold from competitors at 53.00 exactly, forcing a new Olympic record in the process.

Ranomi gold

Aliaksandra Herasimenia (Belarus) and Yi Tang (China) took silver and bronze, respectively. Brit Fran Halsall fought well with high calibre’s of competition in a sturdy effort, finishing 6th.

Men’s 100m butterfly Semi-finals saw Chad Le Clos devote his time to the event, entering a 51.42 just above Tyler McGill at 51.61. Milorad Cavic had 51.66 in third returning from a back injury for Serbia. Michael Phelps set his at 50.86.

Concerts took place down Hyde Park and the like afterwards, where most residents were unaware of, once more not attending, which features the popular singer Alexandra Burke.
