Super Engagé de Dan Mathews


I wrote the preface for my friend Dan’s wild memoir, which just published in France! He created many of PETA’s sexy, witty campaigns, and the book shows how Dan’s imagination helped build the organization into a global force. Very entertaining!

It’s called “Committed” in other countries but here’s a link to order the French edition:

The Game Changers

From the OSCAR®-winning director of The Cove, a shocking expose of the world's most dangerous myth.

The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks — elite special forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — as he travels the world on a quest for the truth behind the world's most dangerous myth: that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health. Meeting elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes, what James discovers permanently changes his relationship with food and his definition of true strength.

As a combatives instructor for the US military and a former UFC fighter, I see the human body as a powerful machine with the potential for excellence in many areas, including strength, speed, stamina, and recovery. Until I got badly injured in 2011, I never thought this potential had much to do with food, which I saw mainly as just calories and protein.

But, unable to train for six months after my injury, I started researching the optimal diet for recovery, and stumbled across a study about the Roman Gladiators which concluded that they ate little or no meat. This seemed really far-fetched to me since I was confident that animal protein was necessary to build muscle, sustain energy levels, and recover from injury. So I flew to Austria to meet the researchers who had made this discovery and left fully convinced that the Gladiators — known at the time as Hordearii, or “barley men” — really did train and compete on a plant-based diet.

This shocking discovery launched me on a five-year quest for the Truth in Nutrition, modeled after Bruce Lee's Truth in Combat philosophy: "Research your own experience, absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is specifically your own”. Beginning with this mindset, I put every preconception I had about nutrition to the test, traveling to four continents to meet with dozens of the world’s strongest, fastest, and toughest athletes, as well as leading experts on nutrition, performance, anthropology, and health. 

What I discovered was so revolutionary, with such profound implications for performance, health, and the future of the planet itself, that I had to share it with the world. — James Wilks

UK Decision - Julian Assange


Although this outcome was to be expected-
now that it happened, it’s again staggering how such „justice“ is even possible.

I‘m struggling myself to find the right words...

it‘s so absurd, that I actually lack the words to express it properly.

It’s an extraordinarily violent decision, denying him all legitimacy.

And the Judge is the wife of Lord Arbuthnot former UK minister of defence, director of SC strategy which is owned by the former head of MI6 and co-directed by another head of MI6, Chairman of Thales advisory board, one of the largest arms companies etc and he and his companies have been exposed by WikiLeaks.

Pass the buck politics -
Boring and self serving -

UK is a Pussy/
America’s Bitch

Berlin No More Walls


Germany is the strongest economy of the EU and thus has biggest responsibility. The current political crisis (the incapability to form a grand coalition) is at the same time a crisis of establishment (Merkel), and opens the doors for the rise of extreme right.
Germany did a good thing to accept so many refugees, but the EU-Turkey deal (to deport them back) is shameful, and most importantly: arm sales should STOP since Germany is selling arms to Turkey who are using it to kill the Kurds - and as effect we have even more refugees.
I can’t help but think of The Berlin Wall, since we are in Berlin, haven’t we had enough of walls...

Pamela in France


Daily Mail (updated)

Yes, you CAN be a sex symbol and have hot flashes too... Baywatch star Pamela Anderson opens up , about her love of France and the ´romantic struggle’ Julian Assange faces.

Down in the South of France it feels like summer, even in February. Warm sunshine dapples the ochre walls, the Mediterranean is a-sparkle and love, crazy love, is in the air.
For here in Marseille, Pamela Anderson has found herself in the grip of un grand amour; she is madly in love, oblivious to the language barrier and the age gap that might have kept less reckless lovers apart.

For a woman who is no stranger to wild and crazy romance— she married her first husband rocker Tommy Lee four days after meeting him.
Consider the evidence.
Pamela is the former Baywatch star, who’s had two husbands, two sons and is now an actress-turned-activist whose causes include animal welfare, the environment and refugees.
Her boyfriend is a french international defender, who is also the father of twin baby boys -


Oh please don’t ask me about Adil.
I don’t want to talk about my private life. ,’ We’ prefer to protect it.
There are a lot of fake relationships out there people can obsess on. We are not that.
He is not with me because he wants attention- definitely not.
He is a very talented soccer player.
A good father.
That’s all I wish to say-
Yet somehow she cannot stop herself. It’s just too intoxicating. ‘We have a very healthy, simple wonderful life.
We are happy together - I’d rather talk about what we agreed upon.
The couple have lived together for the past six months in Marseille, where he plays -
Life is good,
France is a great central location to all the causes I'm deeply involved in.
Every time I put even one foot in the Mediterranean, I think the many refugee families that have lost their lives.
I’ve been to many camps and Calais has been one close to my heart. I bring my dog Zuzu to comfort people and I cook huge amounts of vegan food. ,’ she says.

She attends as many of Adil’s home games as she can with his family.
They are all very close-
After almost a year together, the couple have their routines.
He trains relentlessly - while she likes to shop in the markets for Provencal vegetables to cook beautiful suppers - she is the ultimate chic hostess.

He calls me an alien,’ she says.

Why such an obsession with Age. ? It’s rude you know.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?’
We will be in love for as long as we are in love and if there is ever one day we decide to end it for the best. I can always go and live in another country.’
When Pamela Anderson moved from California to the south of France last year, she wasn’t looking for romance. I always imagined living in the south of France at this Time on my life. I didn’t expect to fall in love, which is always when it happens, right?’ she laughs.
I’m writing a book called Saving Women From Feminism — it’s going to be controversial

- I know I’ll get in trouble for this.

while her two sons from her marriage to Tommy Lee were all grown up — Brandon (now 21) was travelling the world as an actor and model, musician Dylan (20) was forever in recording studios.
‘The boys are busy with their lives. It was time for me to explore new horizons.
They are very supportive.

After spending the previous four years and another £5 million on building her Malibu property she bought the property for £1.3 million in 2008,

She decided to rent out her home for a high season rate of £50,000 per month and go to St Tropez for the summer. Friends such as designer Dame Vivienne Westwood had told her she should live in Europe.
I’ve worked on St Tropez many times. And thought it would be good place to start.
It was also Dame Vivienne who introduced her to Julian Assange, whom Pamela began visiting at his hideaway in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in late 2016.
She’s always been coy about the exact nature of her friendship with Assange, but she sees him every time she is in the capital, most recently just a few weeks ago. She thinks he is a ‘genius’ and that the rape charges (now dropped) against him were ‘a set-up’.


Pamela is very close to Julian. And people have all sorts of assumptions. She is not willing to elaborate on.
Pamela and Adil met at the end of May last year at the Monaco Grand Prix.
‘He has a lot of integrity when it comes to family,’ says Pamela. ‘He is very loyal.’
After Monaco, Adil and Pamela spent a month living in Aix en Provence before moving to Marseille where they stayed in the InterContinental hotel for another month while looking for a home together.
Coincidentally we meet today in the same hotel, the most luxurious in the city. Of course I had expected her to be a bit of a bombshell, but nothing quite prepares one for Pamela in the flesh.

Here she comes now, clipping across the marble foyer in her spike heels, wearing a polka dot dress that clings to every curve and provides a straining frame for the double whammy of her full beam cleavage.
Her waist is tiny, her blonde hair is sexily tousled and men fall silent and just stare, a petrified forest of stunned testosterone, as she sashays past.
Brunch has been laid out in a suite upstairs, where Pamela ignores the elaborate platter of fruits and goes straight for the buttery croissants while ordering a cappuccino.
I thought you were vegan! ‘I am, but I am a very naughty vegan. I haven’t eaten meat for over 20 years, but I am not strict about veganism because I don’t like deprivation of any kind,’ she purrs, in her breathy little voice. We are in France. I need to find vegan croissants.
I know they exist.

In her defense, she points out her vegan shoes and her vegan handbag, talks of the vegan restaurant she opened in St Tropez in the summer ‘I’m just trying to make veganism sexy.’
To this end, she has just ‘created’ a vegan champagne called Amourfou. ‘I didn’t realize most champagnes are filtered through animal organs, did you?
She is bare-legged, and has a smart bruise on her upper left arm, a legacy from her recent appearance onstage in Germany with magician Hans Klok, known as ‘the Dutch David Copperfield’. Ten years ago she played a season with him in Las Vegas as his assistant and has reprized the role on his current European tour.
‘What girl doesn’t want to be a magician’s assistant, right? It is one of the most glamorous things ever,’ she says.
Her star turn includes appearing (and disappearing) in a dangerous trick called Fire Spikes which involves her being locked in a box into which a grid of flaming spears are inserted.
Her hair gets singed, her arms get bruised but she doesn’t care, because being on stage and especially magic is something she loves.
Ah yes, Pamela and her crusades. Falling in love appears not to have quenched her appetite for doing good. In any spare time left after taking vegan meals to Assange (‘Bring me something exotic!’ he says), Pamela has been appalled by the touring animal circuses in France and is lobbying mayors to have them stopped. She is also campaigning to have foie gras production banned and wants Uber and minicab drivers everywhere to be vetted for criminal records — to help keep women safer.
If you search YouTube you’ll see her looking impossibly glamorous in a recent Ride Responsibly ad about the dangers of app-hailed taxis.

‘Just because it is an app doesn’t mean it is safe,’ she says. ‘A young girl who is alone and has been drinking and needs to get home is very vulnerable. This is not victim blaming, it is just saying put some more thought into it.’
She is not a fan of today’s feminism. ‘I hate the victimhood element of it. It is demeaning.
‘A lot of women still like to be sexy, still want men to make the first move — which is empowering for us. We don’t want to be victims and we don’t want to make enemies of men.
‘I am writing a book called Saving Women From Feminism.
For someone who has been through divorces and been explicitly objectified throughout her life — Richard Branson once sold Virgin cola in a ‘Pammy’ shaped bottle — she remains a diehard romantic.
Despite her past as a Playboy centrefold she is anti online porn and dating apps, both of which she believes to be destructive to human intimacy. She is keen on sex, but only with someone she loves.
‘The best sex is in a committed relationship, knowing someone’s nuances and sensuality is what makes you a good lover. You must be brave enough for intimacy.’
Has her sexual desire diminished over the years? ‘I don’t think so, no.’ Could she ever imagine getting married again? ‘Of course!’ She is funny and friendly, easy to like. After moving her clothes and her dog Zuzu to France, it looks like our girl is in it for the long haul. She is learning to speak French, so that she can have deeper discussions with new friends in France


And what else does she wish for in her mad, magnifique world of Fire Spikes and vegan champagne and fugitives and football?
‘I want to do a French film - I’m ready for it. says the former Baywatch star. There is nothing like a new challenge to make you feel young’


Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Julian Assange


* When did Assange enter the embassy, and why is he there?

He entered the embassy on June 19, 2012 and applied for political asylum, seeking protection from US attempts to imprison him over his work as the publisher of WikiLeaks. He was granted political asylum after the UK and Sweden refused to give an assurance they would not extradite him to the US over WikiLeaks publications. The US formally started grand jury proceedings against him in May 2010.

* What is happening on 6 February 2018 at the Magistrates Court in London?

A judge is ruling on whether to dismiss a UK arrest warrant which Mr. Assange’s lawyers have declared has "lost its purpose and its function". The warrant attaches to a Swedish extradition warrant which was withdrawn on May 19, 2017. Mr. Assange is not charged in the UK and is not accused of absconding. He was never charged in Sweden at any time.

* What happens if Mr. Assange wins?

The UK government  will have to come clean about its involvement with US efforts to prosecute him. US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has confirmed that arresting Mr. Assange is a "priority" []. In 2017 then FBI director James Comey told Congress: "[Assange] hasn't been apprehended because he is in the Ecuadorian embassy in London" []
The UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has received a US extradition warrant. The US government has pursued a grand jury against Mr. Assange since 2010 -- which is what led to his asylum in 2012.

* Why does the US government want to prosecute Assange?

A US grand jury investigation has been ongoing since May 2010 with the purpose of bringing a case against Mr. Assange over WikiLeaks publications. Efforts to extradite and charge Mr. Assange have expanded under the Trump administration to include WikiLeaks groundbreaking
series on the CIA published last year. Mr. Assange faces up to life imprisonment for multiple
charges including espionage, conspiracy to commit espionage, conspiracy, theft, and electronic espionage--a terrorism offence []

President Trump’s CIA director Mike Pompeo stated that Mr. Assange has "no First Amendment rights" and that the CIA is working to "take down" WikiLeaks. The US Senate intelligence committee has tabled legislation to declare WikiLeaks a "non state intelligence service" and that the US government should "treat it accordingly" [].

Julian published two responses in the Washington Post:

* What's so unusual about the United Kingdom's actions against Mr. Assange?

The UK remains in violation a United Nations ruling from 2016 that Mr. Assange is being subjected to Arbitrary Detention. The UK government refuses to release most of its internal
communications relating to Mr. Assange saying that to do so would compromise the United Kingdom's national security and diplomatic relations. The UK police surveillance spend against Mr. Assange was last divulged in October 2015, when the UK government admitted to having spent more than £12.6m. Following this admission, the budget for the police operation became classified because, as Metropolitan Police Chief said at the time, "the public are not necessarily supportive of it." The cost is estimated to have exceeded £21 million by February 2018.

* How many days will Mr. Assange have been detained for by 6 February 2018?

2618 days

* How long will the UK have been in breach of the UN ruling on 6 February 2018?

747 days

* How is Mr. Assange after having been in the embassy for 5.5 years?

Several doctors have recently denounced that Mr. Assange's health is in an increasingly dangerous condition. The UN found that his arbitrary detention is "cruel, inhuman and degrading" and tantamount to torture []

* What about the Swedish investigation - didn't Mr. Assange refuse to cooperate?

On the contrary - Swedish authorities could have taken Mr. Assange's statement at any time since August 2010, but refused to do so. After five years of complete inaction, Sweden's Court of Appeal forced the Swedish prosecutor to take Mr. Assange's statement in London. Swedish
authorities finally took his statement on 14 and 15 November 2016 [] and then dropped the matter entirely in response to legal action. He was never charged at any time.

* Why would Sweden refuse to take Mr. Assange’s statement?

It has been revealed through emails obtained under freedom of
information act that the UK Crown Prosecution Service told Sweden to
not interview him in the UK in 2011 and 2012 and also told Sweden not to drop its
extradition request when it moved to do so in 2013. The states also engaged in
attempts to keep this correspondence secret.

Come on UK

The Swedish arrest warrant was for questioning. 
He was questioned and they then closed the investigation a year ago. 
The warrant now has no purpose but has been used to prevent him leaving the country.
The US DOJ States that Julian Assange arrest warrant is a priority. He faces up to life imprisonment for doing his job as editor of WikiLeaks.  
The UN has twice  found that the UK government’s continued attempts to arrest him are a violation of international law. 
Mr Asssange has not been charged with an offence in the UK or Sweden. 
The UK government should  assure Mr Assange that he will not be extradited to the United States for telling the public the truth.
