A Bulgarian politician today survived an extraordinary assassination attempt when a man stormed the stage and held a gun to his head as he was giving a speech. Fortunately for Ahmed Dogan, leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, the weapon misfired giving him time to react and hit the would-be assassins hand out of the way. Before he can attempt a second shot the unidentified suspect is tackled to the ground by security guards and delegates attending the conference in Sofia.

That evil gun probably changed its mind and decided not to kill anyone today.

Watching the response of the mooselim at the podium (who worked with the KGB arm in Bulgaria, BTW) and the so-called ´attacker´, it looks like a staged ´attack´.

N.J. public servant wants job No. 6
Asbury Park Press, by Kevin Pentón    Original Article
Posted By: Phosphene- 12/19/2013 4:57:23 PM     Post Reply
There are double dippers and then there is Patrick DeBlasio, a man with five public jobs in New Jersey. He now wants one more. DeBlasio wants to increase his workload by adding at least 10 hours a week as Highlands´ new chief financial officer. His annual compensation totaled $244,606 in 2012, according to state pension and payroll records. If hired in the new position, DeBlasio would be paid up to $65,000, a portion of which could be shared with an assistant, borough officials said.

Steve Lonegan received state
bailout as mayor of Bogota

He opposes government bailouts. He chides Cory Booker for relying on aid from Gov. Chris Christie. And he boasts of his fiscal leadership as mayor of Bogota. But every now and then, even Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan needs a little help from his friends. Even if those friends are Democrats. In 2006, Lonegan asked former Gov. Jon Corzine’s administration for a $500,000 bailout to balance Bogota’s books, according to documents obtained by The Star-Ledger. And he asked for Sen. Loretta Weinberg’s help to get it.

Gov. Chris Christie´s Texas junket

Politics, like the NFL, is a team sport. Just like football fans, voters are apt to root for the uniform as much as any individual player. That’s instructive to remember as Gov. Chris Christie sets off on a fundraising swing through Texas for his fellow Republicans. While there, he’s sure to sing the home team’s praises. And Texas Republicans are some of the kookiest in the game. The Texas GOP sets the bar for the far-right’s lunatic fringe.

Florida State Boxing Commission officials are reviewing the mixed martial arts license of Championship Fighting Alliance women´s featherweight tournament participant Fallon Fox after learning she is a transgender female. Fox revealed her original gender to SI.com on Monday, two days after Fox landed a knee to the chin of Ericka Newsome, who was knocked out in 39 seconds of their quarterfinal bout in Coral Gables, Fla. It is believed that Fox is the first transgender male or female to participate in an MMA event.

N.J.´s coldest weather in years
to come courtesy of warmth
from miles above North Pole
Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Stephen Stirling    Original Article
Posted By: Phosphene- 1/20/2013 2:01:55 AM     Post Reply
New Jersey is about to experience its coldest weather in several years this week, but while that isn´t terribly unusual for January, the likely reason for it is – suddenly warming temperatures miles above the Earth’s surface at the North Pole. An arctic air mass is expected to spill across the United States and enter the northeast on Sunday, dragged by a series of cold fronts that are forecast to drop high temperatures into the low- to mid-20s by mid-week, according to the National Weather Service.

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

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.

´America´s royal baby´: How Chelsea´s first

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
