Republicans are bracing themselves for Gloria Allred to make a potentially damaging revelation about Mitt Romney, just weeks before the election. The pro-President Obama lawyer is rumoured to be preparing for her so-called 'October surprise' in which she will strike the Republican presidential hopeful's chances by unearthing some sort of secret or scandal. Ms Allred has refused to comment on the rumours, which first surfaced in a tweet by the Drudge Report's Matt Drudge on Thursday. 'Here she comes. Hearing Gloria Allred out there again, about to make a move. After all, it's her time of the campaign. Team O
My fear is this will be a character assination the likes of which we have never seen before. Being 68 years old, I have seen many such lies coming from the democrats. The only true fact will be Mitt's name; all else will be total fabrication.
Well, no one will believe it who knows him, and most of the supporters will not. Of course, whatever it is will get widespread airing by the leftist media, so who knows? If she does have anything that might impact the election, it is time for Rush, and Drudge and others to bring out the news about Obama being gay. Go to Chicago and snoop around the Trinity church, whose people are afraid to talk about O's "gay days". But the stakes are too high! Someone needs to drag big money through the neighborhoods in Chicago and get some folks to talk.
Shortly after the Penn State football coach sexual molestation story broke, a young man from Syracuse accused the assistant basketball coach, bernie fine, of molesting him. The young man's brother had denied the story, then decided to join his brother in the accusations. Their stories did not hold up, although the the cowardly Syracuse University chancellor, homunuculus nancy cantor fired bernie fine, and Gloria Allred showed up on camera to represent a handful of young men, some of whom lied, another lied, and is now in prison as a child molester. Allred hasn't given up on the case, which gives her face time on tv. But there is no case to win. And because there is no sexual molestation to sue about, she is suing the university and the head basketball coach at SU for slander. She has no credibility. Nothing. None.
Who let Gloria off of the Funny Farm? The only October Surprise we should see is that she has kept her mouth shut...she historically attacks people for odd reasons and is never held accountable. But seeing where the election situation is now, the Dumbacrats are desperate and are pulling out the stops and bring out there secret weapon...the G1 Mouth Rocket!!! Let us normal people not fall for this malarky...
She's had all this time to uncover dirt on Romney and now, three weeks before the election Allred is coming out with some spurious allegations? The American people I would hope are not as stupid and gullible as the media would have us believe. Although the leftist media will try to make the charges stick...those who want to believe the charges would probably not have voted for Romney anyway. Those of us who know that this is a trumped up allegation weeks before the election will see this as it is..a false accusation by a desperate President and Dem Party.
Don't underestimate Allred's ability to cause serious mischief in a campaign. She has already succeeded or nearly succeeded in multiple major races by bringing forward either alleged affairs or unpaid/illegal household help. This woman is a viper. Hopefully this time she will end up as a vindshield viper.
You have to know it will be about sex, and she magically found 6 women and 3 boys that are willing to testify about it. Nothing gets those braindead liberal voters (and the media) all worked up more than a sex 'scandal'. Count on it.
I suspect alred's attack to be in same. vein as the McCain and the blond companion story which was refuted but not before the narrative was established. The corrupt media cannot wait to run with any smear against Romney. The strategy is to pound Romney with lies, create a distraction, then quietly bury the story when facts completely vindicate Romney.
She can make anything up then it will take time from the Romney campaign to deny it. This is one nasty, good for nothing woman, deadbeats use her to destroy people since they themselves are such filth covered creeps.
I'm not worried. Now if someone would say they were going to do something to slime Obama....or Clinton....well, that would be something to worry about as there could be hundreds of things that could surface.
Gloria Allred and the corrupt Democrat Media complex will drag out some semi-literate third worlder from Central America who will claim she worked for the Romneys as a housekeeper and was fired for being an illegal. That is what she did to Meg Whitman in the CA Governors race 2010 with that horrid Dias woman. This is her mo. The Romney camp needs to inoculate themselves from Allred and her slimy crew.
Does Gloria have the multimillions to fight a LIBEL suit that could go on for years? Romney does, and would spend plenty to restore his honor. I would think very carefully about this, Gloria. Why not let Obama/Romney fight this out fair and square? Has this woman never heard of biting off more than you can chew?
I seem to remember a story about a former member of the church who Romney counselled in his capacity as a bishop many years ago. She wanted an abortion and Romney tried to talk her out of it. I would guess he told her she would lose her membership in the church. The Mormon church frowns on abortion holds members to a high standard of conduct. It might play into the Republican War on Women meme that the Democrats are pushing. If that is the "scandal" in question, all I can say is bring it on!
Well, we do have one thing on our side - maybe - ole' Donald Trump tweeted the other day that he has something he's set to release on Zero next week. College transcripts? Selective Servie Card explanation? Connecticut Social Security number? Ah - the possibilities!
Well . . . let's trot out the story about Obama and his visits to Man Country in Chicago . . . how he preferred older white men . . . how he was selfish in the bath house scene, if you know what I mean.
She says she ''can't confirm or deny it.'' What does that tell you? It's already Oct 20th. I think Drudge burst her bubble and forced her hand. Now, anything she comes out with will be met with extreme skepticism by the voting public despite attempts by MSNBC to give it legs.
When I was in Vegas a month ago, I opened the USA Today to find a full page ad from Larry Flynt offering a cool $1M to anyone who could provide information that could be used to take down Romney. My guess is some weirdos came forward, got their million bucks and Flynt turned the accusations over to Allred to investigate and pursue.
I don't think it's bimbos and of course not a DUI. If anything, it's some kind of an alleged illegal nanny or other, is my guess, or maybe a disgruntled ex-employee who can come forward and speak to the news media, probably from the household staff... ''Mitt's boys always had so many toys, and my boy had so few. He was so hurt by that. Mean Romney's.''
Mitt is close to Meg Whitman of course and saw Allred take down Meg in the Cali gubernatorial race.
I also think Obama and crew will hedge their bets and have two or three surprises to overwhelm the Romney campaign and figuring that at least one of the surprises will have legs.
Given the blatant media bias recently on display against Romney, who will actually believe anything said about him by a certified leftist toadie like Allred? Especially since her track record screams of affecting the outcomes of important elections to the detriment of Republicans? My educated guess is this "revelation" is only designed to knock Benghazigate out of the news cycle, and will have totally no basis in fact.
Timing is everything in these smears. More time is needed for the word to spread and less time for scrutiny to be applied. We all need to learn to ignore anything a RAT says that looks like a smear in the last weeks of the election season. They shout "wolf" too often when they are loosing.
- He bullied someone in high school? - He mistreated the family dog? - He made a woman die of cancer? - One of his ancestors was a polygamist? - He's going to give the rich a $5 trillion tax cut? - He's going to push granny off a cliff in her wheelchair?
Folks this doesn't have to be true, just timed to sway critical independent voters. So sad for this country. I know the libs are going to try to destroy Mitt Romney no matter what. We need the new media now more than ever.
I remember how negative the threads got here on Lucianne against Herman Cain when Red Gloria did her thing last time. Many people will believe her, and unfortunately, it will suppress the Republican turnout.
Whatever it is, it'll probably be something that will be used to bolster the non-existent "war on women." They'll dig up some advanced neurotic who'll claim that Romney once smiled and said "hello" to her in the Bain building elevator or the corridors of the Mass. state house, and as a result of this horrifying intrusion into the primacy of her female personhood, she was scarred for life.
It will be a bold lie. If there were anything true it would be known by now. But they have nothing to lose from a bold lie. There have been so many already, that no one ever called them on. This time Allred is turning in her own reputation for the cause, because the lie will be discovered and it will be the end of her. She just hopes that will be after the election. Cashing it all in right now.

I don't believe that anything will depress the indy vote this time. The stakes are way too high, the train left the station about two minutes after the first debate ended, and the Mitt-mentum is too great for anything but a full-fledged landslide.
Whatever "secrets"she may come up with - imaginary or otherwise - will be no match for the quiet gossip based on facts about Obama homosexual "activities" with the "Down Low" club at the Chicago Church where his sponsor/triner Rev.Wright is the leader. Please take time out to follow the three articles by Senior Stff Reporter Jorome R. Corsi at: www.wnd.com where you will also read about the arranged married to Michelle by Rev.Wright. The Republican party shoud be made aware of these documented facts and act accordingly.
I am praying that the majority of the American voting public sees this attempt by a vainglorious, publicity hungry, unprincipled ambulance chaser for what it is-a desperate, last-ditch attempt to throw the election to Obama. With his blessings, I'm sure.
Garbage in, garbage out! Unbelievably stupid and crass, but then so is the despicable Mz allred. They underestimate the brain-power of Conservatives by assuming they can damage one of the best candidates the GOP has had for President in HISTORY. Go back to the kennel, gloria, your mates are missing you.
She'll reveal that Mitt has a gigante mocha latte to start each day off and ears briefs. Gloria is so lacking in credibility I doubt there's anything she can reveal that's devastating enough, otherwise they'd have used it before early voting began this past week in some states. There aren't enough undecideds to make a major swing.
A landslide is coming, and I'm hopeful that Romney's coattails will eliminate Harry Reid's tenure as Senate Majority Leader.
LOL, #14! And #25 & #33 are correct. Unlike Clinton's real card-carrying bimbos, Allred's fake bimbo eruption card has been played one time too many.
Perhaps this is being leaked, almost pre-leaked so widely this weekend because there is no there there. All they've got to work with is the opportunity to plant suspicion - however empty. Get that ''suspicion'' out there repeatedly, without details ,and then allege Romney campaign is somehow suppressing their right to ''reveal'' the ''facts'', and allege a cover-up -- a cover-up of Allred's latest contrived deceit.
She'd better be careful. The intent is ugly and the tired attempt at last-minute timed manipulation is old hat these days. It's very likely to blow up in her face with all that slime and it's intended effect ricocheting back all over her Little Lord Pansy-A where it belongs instead, with whatever it is, IF... it is, rightly perceived as either coming from him or by his approval. Read somewhere last night that she was a visitor to the White House just last week. Wonder why?
US intelligence picked up on messages in which Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden´s successor, ordered Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of its Yemen branch, to carry out an attack. The messages represent rare coordination between al-Qaeda´s core leadership, which is in hiding in Pakistan, and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the terror group´s most dangerous offshoot. In response the US has ordered the unprecedented closure of embassies in 19 countries across the Middle East and Africa until at least Saturday. Britain, Germany, France and Holland have also closed their embassies in Sana´a, the Yemeni capital, until later in the week.
President Obama has replaced Republican Mitt Romney as the most popular target for comedians, a study has revealed. [Snip] Obama was the target of 288 gags made by Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel, according to an analysis by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. The second most joked-about individual was New York City Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, at 120. But as the study was conducted before Weiner´s second sexting scandal had come to light, the number of jokes aimed at him is expected to have jumped dramatically
Anthony Weiner´s sexting partner has stripped down for the public as she filmed a video for a major porn distributor. Sydney Leathers poses provocatively in a five-minute clip of the video, and talks about her virtual relationship with the disgraced congressman. ´He would always compliment me on my breasts and my butt and my feet, and he would always tell me I was the perfect height to wear heels,´ the 23-year-old said. In the video, created by porn production company Vivid, Leathers is seen disrobing from various lingerie sets and displaying the assets that many feel cost Weiner his
A Texas man dramatically turned the tables on two bank robbery suspects who had abducted him and his wife on Thursday, by pulling a gun on the duo and shooting them both, killing one. According to KHOU, the unnamed couple were targeted by brothers Jordan, 20, and Preston Kutach, 21, who knew that the woman worked at the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus, near Houston. The suspects kidnapped the couple at gunpoint in their own home, then made them drive to the bank where they forced the woman to withdraw cash. But then her husband struck back
Iran´s new president Hasan Rouhani has accused the United States of seeking an excuse to confront the country over its nuclear programme. The new leader reportedly made the claim during a meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam, who is in the Iranian capital Tehran to see Mr Rouhani´s inauguration. According to Iranian state TV, the president said: ´We believe the United States and the Westerners are seeking an excuse to confront the countries that they do not consider friends.´ The West suspects Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons programme, a charge which Iran denies.
The U.S. State Department has extended the closure orders for 19 embassies and consulates across the Middle East and Africa for a week--amid fears of a ´strategically significant´ terrorist attack against Western interests. Officials are offering few details about the threat from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the arm of the terrorist organization that is based in Yemen, but at least one report indicates it could involve a terrorist attack mounted by people with explosives surgically-implanted inside them--bombs capable of passing undetected through airport security. On Sunday, Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia said ´the chatter´ intercepted by
Almost unnoticed, Iraq is toppling into civil war, yet again. Here are a few sentences plucked at random from an Al Jazeera article published this Saturday: “Bombings and shootings across Iraq have killed at least 19 people, including an ambush that targeted a convoy carrying a top military commander, authorities said … Gunmen also broke into the house of a former fighter of an anti-al-Qaeda group known as Sahwa, killing the man´s wife and two daughters near the city of Baqouba [Snip] You get the picture. It is almost entirely depressing, as there is apparently nothing we can do
Survivors of the Fort Hood massacre are suing the U.S. government for allowing a jihadist soldier to rise through the ranks unchecked because of ´political correctness´. Major Nidal Hasan, 42, is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for after launching an attack at the Texas Army post in November 2009. And on the eve of his trial, which is due to get underway on Tuesday, 148 victims and their relatives are launching a legal claim against the government for $750million (£491 million) for failing to prevent the killings from happening.
A picture has emerged showing NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden grinning from ear to ear as he left Moscow airport on Thursday, after more than a month stranded at the terminal. The 30-year-old is seen positively beaming, flanked by his Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena and two unknown women, as he marches out of Sheremetyevo airport having been granted asylum by Vladimir Putin for a year. [Snip]The photograph, released by Russian TV station Russia24, comes after a member of the US Senate was caught trying to make a rather conspicuous edit to Edward Snowden´s Wikipedia page. In a move sure to grind
Chuck E. Cheese restaurants have been popular spots for kids´ birthday parties for decades. These days, however, the restaurants are a pretty popular spot to throw up your dukes, too, as a series of large brawls between the adults accompanying children has given the chain a bit of a black eye in the PR department. Just last week, two women were arrested following a brawl at a Chuck E. Cheese that involved more than 20 people. That same location has seen more than 80 emergency calls to 9-1-1 in less than two years. A few eeks earlier, a fight broke
For an organisation that is said to be in terminal decline, al-Qaeda will draw immense satisfaction from the events of this past weekend, when it demonstrated its ability to disrupt the work of Western governments by forcing the temporary closure of dozens of diplomatic missions throughout the Arab world. While it is unclear what kind of threat prompted the US government to initiate such radical measures, or the Foreign Office to shut the British mission to Yemen, American intelligence officials are convinced that al-Qaeda is planning a spectacular attack to mark the festival of Eid, which comes at the
Islamist militants set off several explosions in the Somali capital on Sunday, their spokesman said, demonstrating the rebels´ ability to attack the heart of government-controlled areas despite security gains. The guerilla-style attacks were typical of al Shabaab rebels who have waged a six-year campaign to impose their strict interpretation of Islamic law on the country. [Snip] "We started a massive military operation across Mogadishu at dusk. It will go on until tomorrow morning," said rebel spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, promising more attacks over the next few days as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends.
White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
Washington - President Barack Obama´s top national security advisers met at the White House on Saturday to discuss the potential threat of terrorist attacks that caused Washington and its allies to issue travel warnings and close embassies throughout the Middle East. The United States issued a worldwide travel alert on Friday (Snip) Obama is spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat after playing golf earlier on Saturday. His birthday is Sunday. The White House said Obama had received regular briefings about the potential threat and U.S. preparedness measures all week.
Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.
Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make
Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.
Not only should President Obama cancel a bilateral summit with "schoolyard bully" Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg. "President Putin´s behaving like a schoolyard bully, and in my experience, I´ve learned, unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more," Schumer said. "He´s always going out of his way, President Putin is, to seem to poke us in
I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
