Week.ly: From the Mind, Memes and Musings of Hakim Bellamy

Another week in the books for El Presidente. And sadly for him, and U.S., the job only  increases in level of difficulty over time. It’s all uphill skiing from here, if ya know what I mean. And because my meme/blog digest is so topical (read: political) it is hard to write about anything else … […]

Week.ly: From the Mind, Memes and Musings of Hakim Bellamy

Week.ly 8 Greetings Earthlings! I’ve been a little light on meme’s this week …what with so much going on last week in healthcare, Supreme Court justice nominations and … oh, I don’t know, Russia … I’ve been spending so much time trying to follow I could barely come up for air (like one Denis Voronenkov […]

Dunal Trump

Week.ly Update: From the Mind, Memes and Musings of Hakim Bellamy

Week.ly 7 Welcome to Day 57 of the #FirstHundredDays of the Gospel According to Donald. It’s like revisionist history … but, like, in the present.

After reluctantly watching Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus’s staged Rom-Com at CPAC yesterday (Thursday) afternoon … I realized that I am, in fact, the opposition party (read: media). And here I was thinking that I was a […]

After two weeks of Melissa McCarthy doppleganging Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway issuing a public apology to her boss, and the hiring of Rove-era GOP strategist Mike Duke for White House Communications Director … I felt like the debut meme of this week deserved a “Help Wanted sign. Because […]

Week.ly 3

Bernice (AKA Five)

Guest Poet: Hakim Bellamy

Bernice (AKA Five) by Hakim Bellamy for Martin Luther King Jr. National Holiday 2016 I agree. Daddy was a socialist. He gave it all, to everyone. Belonged to every body. Didn’t save any, for me.
