The Florida socialite at the centre of CIA director David Petraeus downfall is planning a tell all book, according to friends. The 37 year old is understood to have held preliminary talks with publishers to tell her side of the story that led to the resignation of General Petraeus. ´Trust me, there is going to be a book in the New Year. You can count on it,´ said a friend of the Tampa socialite. Kelley, 37, has not spoken about her pivotal role in the scandal which led to Petraeus´s affair with his biographer Paul Broadwell being exposed last month. Petraeus, 58,

Jill Kelley made Jill Kelley look like a fool. Who but a power-obsessed bimbo would try to get the Feds involved in her twin sister´s divorce?

I do not care what she writes, I wouldn´t read it - seldom you see such a dumbell like her getting mad because she got caught. The general doesn´t look so good either. Is he also writing a book?

Jill Kelley was a pompous and arrogant fool; broke, dishonest in stealing from a cancer foundation she created; expecting special treatment when none was due; an honorary consulate. Yes, Jill Kelley definitely was a fool.

The floozy will only things worse for herself if she "writes" a book.

The lurid little scandal has already died down; nobody´s talking about it anymore. It potential as a subject for a bestselling book is probably over.

Wise counsel would be to heed the old maxim,
"t´is better to keep one´s mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it ... and remove all doubt."

I guarantee that John Allen did not have sex with this woman. The closet thing Allen has to sex anymore is removing the lips of subordinate officers from his big rear end. I never met a bigger peacock in the USMC.

The publishing business is in such trouble it is doubtful they would pay much for Jill´s memoir, which would end up on the remainder tables due to lack of readers, anyway.

Publishers will first have to believe that by the time this book can be published that people will a) still remember who this dork is, and 2) care.

#17 made this old English teacher´s heart flutter with joy. I can just see Bobby Burns smiling down from heaven, too.

#16 is probably closer to the truth about subordinate officers than the military would want to admit. It happens in the business world, too. In either case it "ain´t pretty".

Okay, Jill, her sister and Paula are all fools but why take it all out on just the women in this florid mess? How about the adult men, senior military officers who supposedly have been tempered by the field of battle and maturity? They fell for these women quicker than a young sailor on his first liberty weekend at some foreign port with a street walker.

BTW - Paula´s arms - hello Michelle?

Valerie Plame on line 1, Ms Kelly. She would like to be your new BFF; seems her star is fading. Oh and that Salahi woman is holding on 2. Hurry, she´s leaving on her honeymoon with the Journey guy. Paula Stonewall or whatever her name is has offered to ghostwrite your story, please see the drafts in the drafts your gmail account.

FTA: ´She said her best way of putting the record straight is a book. A TV interview only lasts a few minutes, but a book is there all the time. That is why she has said no to doing any TV.´

Translation: I can´t get paid for going on TV but I CAN make money off a quickly slapped together, ghost written book.

Just because a woman is good looking, wears stylish clothing / sexy clothing does not make her a fool or some of the other descriptions used above. Keep in mind that the White House had good reason to slander this person to destroy the credibility of anyone who might contradict their Benghazi story line. It might be worthwhile to hear her side of the story. There is ALWAYS two sides of the story.

What was described as a rogue FBI agent sending topless pictures of himself to Kelley turned out to be something innocuous, not an Anthony Weiner type of picture. What was described as thousands of pages of e-mails was described later (at least in one story) as 60 to 70 emails, which might be one per week, depending on the length of time.

This woman was smart enough to get into medical school which most of us could not do. I might read what she has to say.

Sorry to buck the trend of scorn but I´m all for such a book, just as I support the Lewinsky book.

A book can be criticized or denied but it still bypasses the media complex and for that reason they hate it.

The only way the ivory tower types can be brought to ground is for tales of their misdeeds to become known.

There´s something shady about her and the fact that she´s married to a surgeon on the brink of bankruptcy tells me something about her desperate quest for fame. By shear nerve she´s managed to ingratiate herself to generals and politicians.

It is the stark contrast between all these perfumed Pentagon princes and their socialite/biographer camp followers bee-bopping around the Pentagon and CENTCOM, while true warriors fight to the death against impossible odds against radical Islamists, while the administration and state department look on voyeuristically, and idly, that offends our sensibilities. The women are whores, the men philanderers, and the aides de camp men-in-waiting for their spot in the slot. Washington needs a flush.

The thing that gets me about this is that people like Petraeus are supposed to be smarter than us and as head of the CIA should know that groupies would be stalking him. He turned out to be just another lonely man who became a fool for a little bit of attention from these groupies.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

Regarding the government´s so-called economic offensive, Ramírez stressed their new approach will focus on "production sectors so as to produce our own supplies and food." "Our economy has been under attack, and we will not wait until next year to take action; on the contrary, we have created a new exchange system, we have opened up new ways to allow the inflow of dollars," he stressed.

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

For Second Night, Valparaiso
Fire Spreads Misery In Chile
National Public Radio, by Bill Chappell    Original Article

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit. She adds: "This is a city built on

Lax Immigration Enforcement

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
