He was the King of Poop. Neverland’s manicured lawns and fairy-tale facade masked a house of horrors and madness, five of Michael Jackson’s maids revealed to The Post. “Michael sometimes ran around where the animals were, and he’d track .?.?. poop throughout the house and think nothing of it,” Maid No.?1 recalled. “Then, if you said something, he’d threaten to make doo-doo snowballs and throw it at you.” When Oprah Winfrey visited the Los Olivos, California, ranch for an interview in 1993, it was pristine. Floors were waxed, walls scrubbed and windows power-washed. It was after she, guest Elizabeth Taylor and TV crews left

A former Prince George’s County teacher won a $350,000 jury award after accusing the school system of discriminating against him because he is white. Jon Everhart alleged in his lawsuit against the Prince George’s County school board that a black principal forced him out of his job because of his race. (snip) Everhart said Simpson-Marcus told students that the “only reason a white teacher teaches in P. G. County is that they can’t get a job elsewhere.” He filed a union grievance against her and said she told him that if she ever became principal, he would be the first person she

FERGUSON, Mo. - The FBI is investigating possible civil rights violations after a suburban St. Louis police officer fatally shot an unarmed teenager. Cheryl Mimura, a spokeswoman for the FBI´s St. Louis field office, says the agency is looking at possible civil rights violations arising from the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Police say Brown was shot multiple times Saturday in a scuffle with an officer in Ferguson. Mimura says the FBI is monitoring the case and working with St. Louis County police. A candlelight vigil for Brown was held Sunday, and tensions erupted later that night. Nearly three dozen

What Lamar Alexander´s primary
win means for labor politics
Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/11/2014 2:02:11 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Lamar Alexander won Tennessee´s Republican primary Thursday, effectively ensuring he will get a third term in office and a chance to set the Senate´s agenda on labor issues if the GOP wins control of the chamber this fall. Alexander has a shot at becoming chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, as polls show Republicans have a better than even chance of taking back the Senate in November. That is likely to be a big frustration for Big Labor, since Alexander has consistently voted against its agenda. The 74-year-old Alexander is an old-school lawmaker noted for his

ISIS a bigger threat

As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues to sweep through northern Iraq, U.S. lawmakers are sounding the alarm that it could be just as dangerous as al Qaeda in the days before it launched the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. "Every day that goes by, ISIS ... becomes a direct threat to the United States of America. They are more powerful now than al Qaeda was on 9/11," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said on NBC´s "Meet the Press" Sunday. Experts say the Islamic jihadist group has indeed been able to accomplish an enormous amount in a

Vacationing President Obama will host his 401st fundraiser Monday night on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., continuing his record-setting pace that has had him collecting checks from donors at events on average every five days since becoming president. The Vineyard event is for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee at the Tisbury retreat of Boston’s Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown and his wife, Linda Mason. For the president, it’s a sign that even while he is taking some time off to golf and relax with his family, the business of raising money for his embattled party is endless. He should do well, since

A surprise change in Pentagon contractors is causing headaches for rank-and-file military personnel and their families on the move this summer. International Auto Logistics of Brunswick, Ga., last year won a $305 million bid to handle the transport of about 66,000 personal vehicles owned by service members, family members and civilian employees who move each year within and beyond the United States. Immediately after the new contract began this spring, complaints began rolling in: Cars and trucks shipped to wrong locations, delays of several weeks, vehicles damaged upon arrival and an online vehicle tracking system that typically fails.

WASHINGTON — The president of Somalia carried to Washington last week plans for economic development and the hopes of his people to recover from the scourge of terrorism, capped off with a crucial message for America: the threat of Al-Shabaab and other al-Qaeda affiliates in North Africa is not Somalia’s problem alone. “Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, all of them, these are terrorist organizations — they are linked, they live for each other, they support each other and they are connected globally,” President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud told PJM in an exclusive interview on Friday. “It’s not just an issue of one country or

ABC’s Jon Karl reported Sunday that the Obama White House is “entirely unconcerned” about the optics of President Obama playing golf during the ongoing foreign policy crises. “They are entirely unconcerned about it because their boss is entirely unconcerned about it. Even if they were [concerned] there isn’t anything they could do about it. He likes to get out and play golf. It was pretty remarkable, he got here [Martha’s Vineyard] and on the golf course in almost record time. I think we were on the island about an hour by the time he was already hitting off the first

Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer asked the famed investigative duo Woodward and Bernstein if they learned anything from Watergate that could help future presidents can avoid political scandals. Woodward had one piece of advice, gleamed from Robert McNamara’s lessons from Vietnam. “The advisors to the president need to sit around with the president and argue with him,” he said, “and say, ‘Wait a minute, let’s look at all the options.’ You have to create a conflict situation. McNamara said what happens in the presidency is no one wants to argue with the president, particularly in front of other advisors.

A familiar face is now involved in the Saturday police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old man in St. Louis, MO. Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney who represented Trayvon Martin‘s family in the 2013 George Zimmerman trial, has been retained by Brown’s parents. They are scheduled to host a press conference Monday, according to WTSP. Brown was fatally shot by police officers during an encounter near an apartment complex. According to KMOV, witnesses say Brown was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by an officer. Zimmerman was acquitted of murder charges. [Image via

Eager to defend President Obama from criticism of his vacation in Martha´s Vineyard amid multiple international crises, both Sunday´s ABC Good Morning America and Monday´s NBC Today used false spin to downplay the bad optics. (snip) Jansing quickly parroted administration talking points to blunt the criticism: "Now, the White House strongly rejects that assertion. They say ISIS, as dangerous as these terrorists are, has shown no desire to carry out 9/11-style attacks." On Friday, however, The Daily Mail reported on ISIS using social media to announce its desire to attack the U.S.:

The governing body of one New Jersey town voted in favor of renaming the local Kennedy Center after the current White House head — and calling it the Barack Obama Center — and some residents aren’t exactly happy. Philly.com reported that the renaming came at the request of Willingboro Township Mayor Jacqueline Jennings, after she recalled how the black population in the region reacted with excitement at the campaign and election of Mr. Obama. “I think that people have a sense of pride about him,” she told Philly.com. “We had so many new people register to vote, people who had

Satan´s worshipers are coming to Oklahoma City, and the Sooner State may need some help from its Lone Star neighbor if it´s to put the devil in his place. But first, some background: On Sept. 21, a self-described "satanist" group called Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, led by registered sex offender Adam Daniels, 35, is holding a "black mass" at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

A pilot project at 25 Pima County polling places will have workers asking voters to scan their driver’s licenses with an iPad. The goal is to replace the signature roster books currently used at the polling places, Pima County Elections Director Brad Nelson said. Poll workers will use the iPads to scan voters’ driver’s licenses and verify their identification. Voters will then sign their names on the iPad screens with their finger. The information scanned will be matched to data already contained in county databases that’s filled out when a person registers to vote, Nelson said. An Arizona driver’s license is

Forty years ago public outrage about the actions of President Richard Milhous Nixon, lead by his long time liberal critics, forced him to be the first U.S. chief executive to resign the presidency. Critics screamed about Nixon’s extra-legal and extra-constitutional conduct as protestors ringed the White House chanting “Jail to the Chief.” Nixon’s men had spied on their fellow citizens, allegedly used the IRS to harass their political enemies, waged war without the consent of Congress and used the CIA in an effort to hide their crimes. No man, Nixon’s critics assured us, was above the law. For his transgressions,

President Obama’s decision to launch airstrikes in Iraq, while backed by senior Hill leaders, has only underscored for his critics the consequences of waiting as long as he did to counter the growing threat of militants with the Islamic State – a group he once dismissed as a “JV team.” Now, the commander-in-chief is being pressed by Republicans and some hawkish Democrats to commit to battling the organization, whose territory stretches from Iraq to Syria, long-term and overhaul what until last week was a wait-and-see approach. “Three years ago, Mr. President, you were told by your national security team, get

Recently, Pope Francis declared that “the persecution of Christians today is even greater than in the first centuries of the church, and there are more Christian martyrs today than in that era.” The slaughter of as many as 500,000 Christians in South Sudan since 2011 may not have received the attention it deserved. However, now the religious cleansing of Christians in Iraq resulting from Islamic jihadists’ conquest of lands Christians had called home since the first centuries A.D. cannot be ignored. In a region where Christians and Muslims had previously lived in relative peace side by side for centuries, the past 10

“You use them or you die.” This is what a doctor told Sulette Brown, a psychotherapist from Oklahoma, when she balked at taking statins, after she’d been rushed to the emergency room for a heart attack. Since that night, her life has changed in ways she could not have imagined. Statins block the synthesis of cholesterol, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in every cell in your body. They commonly are prescribed to treat and prevent cardiovascular disease, or CVD, a condition in which the arteries are occluded by plaque which consists of (among other things) cholesterol. Two common complications of CVD

One patient, a veteran who lived at the treatment facility, was said to have made regular visits to Kaplan’s apartment and was aghast when she was asked to hand-wash lingerie for his wife, according to the former staffer. “She came to me very upset,

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of
