Armstrong Was at Center of
Doping Program, Agency Says

New York Times, by Juliet Macur

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 10/10/2012 1:19:14 PM

The United States Anti-Doping Agency said Wednesday that Lance Armstrong was at the center of the most sophisticated and professional doping program in recent sports history and that it would soon release details of its findings. (Snip) The file, as described by the agency, would be the most extensive, groundbreaking layout of Armstrong’s alleged doping, bolstered by unprecedented interviews, financial statements and laboratory results.

What a way to treat the first man on the moon; after he's dead and can't defend himself. ;-)

IMO, this is much ado about nothing. What exactly do they have against Lance Armstrong that they want to get him so badly? I think there are politics behind this brouhaha.

Why are we wasting time and money on this claptrap. Could it possibly be because Lance and "W" are friends?

Actually, Lance and O's friends are friends. The DOJ fraud case was unilaterally shut down by Andre Birotte, a Holder wannabe. Armstrong's current PR firm is Mark Fabiani and Chris Lehane; Clinton's Masters of Disaster. Armstrong has played golf several times with Bubba.

OK, #6, my point is that never assume the motivations of a pseudo-official organization are as pure as the wind-driven snow. There are at least two sides to every story. And yes, there's big money to be had and at stake. I don't pretend to know the ins and outs of professional cycling. So perhaps someone with enough time and investigative acumen can explain to also to me, a fellow 'mere human', the money trail and the connections behind this accusation and (just perhaps) the full story.

I find that often when the accusers and conspiracy theorists can't find any good evidence they claim that it was all because the crime was so sophisticated and professional and devious. So this claim that the whole thing was "extremely sophisticated and professional" immediately sets off my alarm that it's probably all bull. And I was starting to think LA was guilty.

I don't care which political side he is on, Lance Armstrong's feats are legendary - I personally think it's a "French jealousy thing" that spilled over onto the US b/c they saw some money could be made by prosecuting him.

When they can show me that his opponents in the race were squeaky clean, then I will care. He passed all his tests and, as far as I've seen, all they have is anecdotal evidence -- people pressured into testifying against him -- to make their "case". They had no intention of ending the investigation until they bankrupted Armstrong.

Once again, the French were not driving this investigation.

You want a money trail? Follow the money that Armstrong paid to the governing body UCI. The UCI magically made Armstrong's positives go away in the late 90s early 2000s.

Try the Livestrong Foundation who no longer provides money for research - only for "awareness". Try the money that Livestrong gave to Planned Parenthood (one of Barbara Boxer's favorite money recipients) and not too long after that, the DOJ case went away.

Sorry for the double post but USADA's evidence includes: financial payments, emails, *scientific data* and *laboratory test results* (emphais mine), as well as direct testimony from over 26 people, only 15 of whom were riders.

The "never tested positive" meme is bunk.

To all the Lance defenders out there, consider this:

For Lance to be innocent, Levi Leipheimer lied.
For Lance to be Innocent, George Hincapie lied.
For Lance to be innocent, David Zabrieski lied.
For Lance to be innocent, Christian Van de Velde lied.

And 20+ other people lied.

Lance is no saint. And that bit about passing 500+ test is true...only if you understand that he gamed them and in some cases, made payments to the governing body doing the testing.

Saint Lance has a well crafted well honed public image. All built on lies. Livestrong is a good organization, but even liars and cheats have great ideas.

This isn't some magic conspiracy. Talented, respected, wonderful people all independently told the truth. And the truth is...

Lance is a liar and a cheat.

I'm no expert on cycling, only a mountain biker not a roadie. IMO since USADA could not catch him doping, regardless of whether he really did dope or not, they are making all their evidence public to turn public sentiment against him. I'm sure USADA will delight in all the stories written about him by the cyclo-journalists as they dissect all the information they dumped.

Still not going to believe it until they present the "real" proof. Just like everything else the government agencies do, they put out the lie, do damage, then never release the proof. Oh, and the apology comes weeks later on some obscure page of the newspaper.

Fracking is a perfect example of the damage they do with lies, spin, falsehood, un-scientific studies, etc. then weeks later tell the truth.

U.S. childhood obesity rates have increased over the past 14 years, according to a study published on Monday, casting doubt on a recent analysis by government health researchers that found a sharp drop in preschool obesity rates over the past decade. The good news, announced in February by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), received widespread media coverage and prompted first lady Michelle Obama to say she was "thrilled at the progress we´ve made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans.

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

Justin Bieber’s mansion reportedly was stuffed with drugs and paraphernalia when cops rolled up to serve an egging-related search warrant last week. Two large cookie jars loaded with marijuana sat in plain view of the dozen detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, an unidentified source told TMZ.com. The notorious party palace also contained four or five empty codeine bottles along with empty Fanta bottles, TMZ said. The Fanta bottles appeared to be discolored by the codeine, a sign they were used to mix the narcotic drink Sizzurp, also called “lean.” Luckily for the Biebs, the deputies were raiding the house for surveillance

Jeff Ireland is out as the Miami Dolphins´ general manager. The team announced Tuesday it has mutually agreed to part ways with Ireland, who had been a controversial figure since being named GM in 2008. (Snip) The Dolphins haven´t been to the playoffs since 2008, finishing 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 and 8-8 since. They needed to win one of their final two games to make the postseason this season but lost to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. That cost offensive coordinator Mike Sherman his job Monday and surely contributed to Ireland's ouster a day later.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
