Lance Armstrong´s
worldwide web of lies

New York Daily News, by Mike Lupica

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/13/2013 5:43:55 AM

To the end Lance Armstrong, desperate to remain relevant, somehow is allowed to control his own narrative. So after all the lies from Armstrong from across all the years, lies about himself and about all those who dared to tell the truth about him, there comes one last one: That he still has something we want. To the end this guy thinks he can play the whole world for suckers. Unless Armstrong and his team of lawyers and crisis managers have him back out of his interview with Oprah Winfrey at the last moment

Comments:
Welcome to Pete Rose´s tarnished world, Mr. Armstrong. There are consequences to the brand, even for the icons.

I´ll bet every pro cyclist uses drugs or blood doping.

Sorry, #2. Lots of athletes can do wondrous things with the help of performance enhancement drugs, even racehorses. It´s not ok.

The "drug" that Armstrong is accused of using has been an integral part of cancer treatment, to prevent anemia by aiding in rebuilding the red blood cell production damaged by chemotherapy, for some time. He would have had to have it for that purpose. Did that get snarled up with his racing?

When you read the reports most of the griping comes from his competitors and their wives. It seems to me that they have a built-in conflict of interest.

That said, I have no interest in Oprah ever, regardless of her guest.

I hear ads on the radio all the time on products boosting testosterone and others selling HGH formulas but both are considered as PEDs by professional sports owners/operators.Both products are produced naturally by the body and all these supplements do is boost the levels causing quicker muscle development. I mean whey power products can do the same thing.So it´s hard for me to understand why legal products are banned from sports use. You still need a base skill to produce in any sport.

I don´t know what Armstrong is accused of,nor do I care because I hate the sport of cycling to begin with.One of Armstrong´s whistle blowers said he got death threats,more that likely some came from Armstrong himself. Whatever stupid mea culpa he does on Oprah means absolutely nothing to me.He´s only came clean after evidence cornered him in a box.I have questions about his mentality from dating Cheryl Crow,a lefty fruitcake if there ever was one.

We´ll have to see what the actual ´confession´ is, but this is a huge disappointment. Perhaps cyclists like Greg LeMond feel a little bit vindicated now, since he had blowing the whistle on Armstrong and others for many years.

A cheat is a cheat; his scam was so elaborate he´d have blood transfusions to get rid of evidence. He wasn´t just a bad husband and a cad - he let down a whole bunch of people at his foundation.

I´m talking about the essence of the man´s character. You can use the relativity of his enhanced prowess all you want. That memory will now be cast aside because of his other gargantuan effort: lie and fool everybody.

To me it´s perfectly pitiful that he´s taken the Oprah route. There´s historical evidence now as to how bad many her choices of champion have gone. I chose not to get her channel, but wouldn´t watch it anyway, not even to see him do the grovelling bit on TV.

The lefty Mike Lupica is not a beloved figure on this blog and for good reason. Another athlete of a different color or race would probably be treated, if anything was said at all by Lupica, with sympathy and the kind of paternalism that now passes for compassion. But cheating is cheating. We long for heroes but are fed a steady diet f phoneys. It´s not good for our children to see us make excuses for such people. And having or having had cancer isn´t no excuse. Armstrong was living a lie rather than trying to reform a dirty sport.

#2 and #8 said it best - I do remember that incident and it was whiners from other countries that started that rumor and at the time, I thought it was stupid that no meds, no nothing could be taken by an athelete. Good lord, they get sick, have allergies and sometimes need medicines. The other countries were dismal.

Oh poor me. Armstrong is just another narcissist who will do or say or leak anything to keep himself on the front page. As an above poster mentioned, he reminds me of Pete Rose. But at least Rose has just reduced himself to whining and selling signed pictures, not crying to a bunch of foolish women and their Leader, Oprah. Armstrong has now hit bottom.

I can´t say I care much for Armstrong´s lies and treatment of other people, but I fail to see how taking him down does anything to vindicate the sport of cycling. It seems that everyone in the top tier of cyclists was doping and that nobody won any of the big races without doping. It´s disappointing, but not terribly surprising, that Armstrong wasn´t the super-athlete that he appeared to be, but his sport was, and probably always will be, dirty with dope.

Good Lord people.

Its not (just) about the doping. It is the trafficking, the lying, the bribery to the UCI, and USADA, the witness intimidation in a Federal case, the threatening of other riders´ wives, the public humiliation of anyone who dared question the myth, and on and on.

His own "Doctor" who started his doping program (Ferrari) thought that his early doping in the 90s gave him his cancer.

Get a clue.

Cycling is a sport where everyone cheats, I learned that decades ago when I saw Breaking Away. I really don´t care about whether Lance cheated. I do admire his fight against cancer and I hope that he can go on to have a productive and meaningful life. But most of all I am glad that he has a life because he beat cancer.

Just the fact that Lance Armstrong is confessing his "sins" to the most worthless obese lump of flesh in existence (except Michael Moore) , Oprah Winfrey, who´s own "career" was built on a mountain of lies tells you just what kind of person Armstrong really is and how the moral standards of this country are almost to rock bottom. These two (Oprah and Lance)deserve each other.

Does Armstrong deserve his fate? Oh, yes. But wait, maybe he doesn´t. After all, what happened to the first man to be confronted with the blue dress?

I´m conflicted about all of this. I tend to think, he got away with it fair and square, and probably most of his competitors were doing it too. He put in a lot of work cheating, it was very risky to himself, and that should be respected.

Let´s not forget a meeting with Senator Diane Feinstein; two weeks later, his charity Livestrong makes a $100,000 donation to Planned Parenthood. One week later, Feinstein protege and US Attorney Andre Birotte drops the Justice Department´s criminal investigation with no consultation with the Federal investigators and only 15 minute notice.

Yeah, every bike racer does that - because they all do it. I saw it in a movie.

Lance Armstrong apparently took substances he knew were against the rules and then lied about it. Not once, which would make him weak and human, but over and over and over again, which makes him a liar and a cheat. Once one´s lack of character has been confirmed, only a lifetime of pennance and demonstrated change can earn back the trust that was destroyed. There is no quick fix.

The fix to doping is simple. Have two categories - the undoped and the doped. The undoped would be the only ones eligible to win a competition.

The doped could race and all that, but couldn´t win anything. Or perhaps have a 1st, 2d and 3d among the dopers.

The award ceremony would have to come a week or so after an event to allow for dope testing.

Lance used epogen, a red blood cell multiplier that, guess what, thousands of kidney patients and others use to maintain some level of energy through their day. I used to give myself injections of it daily when I was on dialysis, not that it helped greatly in the treatment of dying kidneys. I do NOT consider that substance much of an aid to the blood. Lance was the greatest cycling athlete since the Belgian Eddy Merkx, and his accomplishments should not have been ignored because of epogen. It just is not that much of a stimulant, if at all.

#4 you don´t know the seedy underside of professional European cycling. #1 would probably win a bet with you; the pressure and stakes are enormous for riders who routinely ride an average of 28 to 30 MPH over hundreds of miles, or in the case of the Tour, thousands. These kids see racing as their only hope out of desparate conditions, and are superstitious to the max along with willing to try anything to
give them an edge.

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

How Lindsey Graham

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

The Problem With Student-Loan Forgiveness

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/23/2014 5:32:21 AM     Post Reply
You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
