Pressure mounts on climate hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio to stand down from his UN Climate Change role

As if it isn’t bad enough that climate hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio flies around the world in private jets while lecturing us on the perils of CO2, he is now being pressured to renounce his UN Climate Change role because of his involvement in a corruption scandal.

A rainforest charity calls on the star to either denounce his connection to individuals involved in a Malaysian corruption scandal and return laundered money he allegedly received or give up his role.

In perhaps the biggest attack on Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental credibility, a rainforest charity on Friday called on the actor to give up his title as UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change.

At a press conference in London, the Bruno Manser Funds offered DiCaprio an ultimatum: either he renounce his connections to the “politically exposed persons” at the center of the multi-billion dollar 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal now being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department and return corrupt money he allegedly received or resign from the position he was given by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon in 2014. ?

Meanest Divorce: Snow Camo: Kevin Cotter tells the story, when his wife of 12 years moved out of their Tuscon, Ariz. home in 2009, she left behind just one thing: Her old wedding dress, pristinely preserved in his closet. "What do you expect me to do with it?" he asked. ?Whatever the $%^@# you want,? she replied. The comment hit a nerve, and a couple of months later Cotter and his family started joking about ways he could repurpose the gown. The frock had cost him nearly a grand anyway and seemed like such a waste just sitting in storage.

The Meanest Divorce

He Kidnapped Their children. She Bankrupted his Family. He Hid Out For Seven Years. She Had Him Put In Jail. A Story Of Love Turned To Hate

?Tell me something,? Chuck Smith asked, staring with a Rasputin-like stare. ?Would you let your kids suffer? Would you break the law to keep them safe?? His voice, usually as fervent as an evangelist?s, drops to a half-whisper. ?Would you sacrifice everything for your own kids??

In 1984, Cuernavaca, Mexico, fifty miles southwest of Mexico City, while divorcing his wife, Carolyn, Chuck Smith, Houston?s most infamous father, then 26 years old, the scion of one of Houston?s wealthiest and most politically influential automobile dealers, kidnapped his own two sons?Charles, age 6, and Christopher, only 4?and vanished for more than seven years.

Chuck testified that the boys tearfully begged him to take them away from their mother, who had become so addicted to prescription drugs that she slept through the day, forgetting to feed them, shaking them when they woke her. On occasion, Chuck said, she refused to allow them out of their room, forcing them to urinate in the closet. Fearing that the divorce courts would still not give him full custody, Chuck decided there was only one thing to do. ?What self-respecting father,? he asked, his 250-pound body looming as he paces the room, ?would leave his boys in that environment??

Wogball president quits in disgrace just days after being re-elected

The world president of Wogball has finally quit as the corruption scandal engulfing the sport escalates.

The FBI and US prosecutors are investigating outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter in their corruption case against world football’s governing body.

US ABC News have reported the major development, citing sources familiar with the case. The news comes hours after Blatter stunned the football world announcing his resignation in Zurich.

Blatter’s unexpected resignation was met with mixed reaction with football leaders expressing relief, but also raising questions over the timing of the move – just four days after his re-election.

The 79-year-old announced the decision in Zurich on Tuesday (NZT Wednesday), in the face of a corruption investigation that has plunged football’s governing body into the worst crisis in its history.

The outgoing president said an election to choose his successor for the deeply troubled organisation would be held as soon as possible. A Fifa official said that could happen any time from December this year to March of next year.

“Fifa needs profound restructuring,” Blatter said. ?? Read more »
