Drudge Report: 'Sex
Scandal To Hit Campaign'

Business Insider, by Grace Wyler

Original Article

Posted By:The Slammer, 10/31/2012 7:51:20 PM

The Drudge Report, the heavily-trafficked blog run by conservative Matt Drudge, is up with a new headline hyping a "sex scandal to hit campaign..." According to Drudge, the story is "developing." Drudge, a close personal friend of Mitt Romney's campaign manager Matt Rhoades, has hyped up several exclusive news stories during the 2012 campaign cycle, most of which have fallen flat. So our hopes aren't too high for his latest report.

Comments:
My apologies to the Lucianne.com staff is this isn't a legitimate news source.

I've been watching this on Drudge and note that it doesn't even say whose campaign. It might not be the presidential campaign even.

Obama's late 70's pictures as a Disco Queen/King in NYC have surfaced.
Larry Sinclair, Donald Young et al - too many to be a coincidence. Three murdered Gay Black Men in Obama's Church just before he became POTUS and no convictions?
Why didn't Michelle go to Church with Obama and the girls on Sunday?
Jeremiah Wright's Down Low club is well known in the black community in Chicago according to Kevin Dujan on Hillbuzz- and Michelle and Barack are his star frauds-are his chickens coming home to roost???
BTW - if it is NOT about Obama - Why Not???

Agree with #4 ... even if Drudge's alleged scandal turns out to be the truth coming out about Obama and the "down low."

The Benghazi debate is far more important right now. Of course we should not drop the topic of Obama's fabricated past -- it will be imperative for history to establish exactly who the impostor, Obama, really was.

But for now, the immediate (and continuing) national security crisis that is Benghazi deserves our strongest focus.

Well, Drudge has a photo of Obama sandwiched between this text and Gallup's announcement that they'll begin polling tomorrow, so is the photo a clue that it's Obama-related? My guess is that the secret service detail has been procuring for someone...but what and who?

If you've ever read Hillbuzz.org, you'll know that Drudge puts hints around pics, especially of Bathhouse Barry. Someone's probably dropping the hammer on all of his "golfing outings" in which there's zero golfing going on.

Bill Clinton sex scandal? Not if it involves live women. That's old news. Yawn.

But if we're talking about Obama and men and/or boys, well, that should have been outed a month ago. The timing on that will have been dismissed as opportunistic.

Dr. Corsi has already written an article about the down-low club of which jugears was an active member and people from Trinity Church named names. The article was a 3 part series of info on obama in Chicago. Told how Rev. Wright and Jesse Jackson paired obama to michelle (the undesirables were talked into cover for the homos, or bi's. This was about 3-4 weeks back. Maybe that is what is coming out.

I just hope Drudge isn't falling for a fake scandal, where the debunking & outrage are pre-scripted

And if anyone thinks a homosexual rumor about Obama will hurt him among black voters, think again. It would be denied as a smear, and a We [bruthas & sistas] Got His Back campaign has been driven home for some time now.

Well, since we're playing parlour games here.... Do you all remember the staffer that worked in Chicago? Young guy. Died all of a sudden. He had worked very closely with Obama before this election. The other thing I always found strange was Reggie Love said that one of his "duties" as the President's body man was to wake him up in the morning. Why wouldn't his wife do that? Do they use separate bedrooms like Hillary and Bill did?

I would rather read about a smoking gun regarding Benghazi than Obama's, or anyone's, sex life.

If it's about Obama, it could backfire. First, it makes him a victim which is a role he's milked for a lifetime. Second, people are serious about this election and will likely be turned off by what they perceive to be another tired political stunt.

Diane Feinstein was critical of Clinton for the Monica scandal. Hence, she is shown with her hand over her face, eye peeking out. Obama is shown, well, ahem. If your mind occasionally travels in the gutter, the mouth agape and gesture chosen by Drudge (out of the million file photos available) is as apparent as a presidential candidate scratching his cheek with his middle finger.

i think it's all a tease. too late for any real scandals (although it would be wonderful if a provable, printable one were to appear involving pres. obama or v.p. biden).

Former governor paterson, NY, appointed Kirsten Gillibrand to Hillary Clinton's senate seat, ignoring the requests of missie barack to appoint Caroline Kennedy.
And Paterson is a world class horndog.
Could Gillibrand have done the mandingo thing to get her seat?

Amen, #71. Kerry getting busted on something like this would be awesome. Doesn't seem far-fetched, either.

Well, since Menendez a dimocrat, this is a real resumé enhancer. The only thing better for his career would have been if they had been male prostitutes.

New Hampshire Lawmaker Apologizes
For Calling Women ´Vaginas´
Chicago Tribune, by Jason McLure    Original Article
Posted By: The Slammer- 4/17/2013 1:34:00 PM     Post Reply
A New Hampshire state representative apologized on Wednesday for using "vagina" as a synonym for "woman" in a mass email to lawmakers as part of a gun-law debate. Representative Peter Hansen was responding to fellow Republican Representative Steve Vaillancourt, who had urged repeal of the state´s Stand Your Ground law.The 2011 law allows use of deadly force even if people could safely retreat from a threatening situation."What could possibly be missing from those factual tales of successful retreat in VT (Vermont), Germany and the bowels of Amsterdam," Hansen wrote in an email to the 400-member House of Representatives in response to a speech by Vaillancourt.

Roger Ebert dead: A film critic
with the soul of a poet

It was reviewing movies that made Roger Ebert as famous and wealthy as many of the stars who felt the sting or caress of his pen or were the recipients of his televised thumbs-up or thumbs-down judgments. But in his words and in his life he displayed the soul of a poet whose passions and interests extended far beyond the darkened theaters where he spent so much of his professional life. The Pulitzer Prize-winning movie critic for the Chicago Sun-Times for more than 45 years died Thursday, according to a family friend.

We begin with the three words everyone writing about the election must say: Nobody knows anything. Everyone’s guessing. I spent Sunday morning in Washington with journalists and political hands, one of whom said she feels it’s Obama, the rest of whom said they don’t know. I think it’s Romney. I think he’s stealing in “like a thief with good tools,” in Walker Percy’s old words. While everyone is looking at the polls and the storm, Romney’s slipping into the presidency. He’s quietly rising, and he’s been rising for a while.

Team Romney is drawing satisfaction and a growing sense of confidence from a new CNN poll that, while over-weighting Democrats, shows that Mitt Romney is running away with independents, the Big Kahuna in Tuesday's presidential election. According to a new CNN poll, Romney is beating President Obama 59 percent to 35 percent among independents even when third party candidates are included.

The Drudge Report, the heavily-trafficked blog run by conservative Matt Drudge, is up with a new headline hyping a "sex scandal to hit campaign..." According to Drudge, the story is "developing." Drudge, a close personal friend of Mitt Romney's campaign manager Matt Rhoades, has hyped up several exclusive news stories during the 2012 campaign cycle, most of which have fallen flat. So our hopes aren't too high for his latest report.

With less than a week before the election, the race for the White House is dead even: Barack Obama and Mitt Romney receive 46 percent each, according to a Fox News poll of likely voters. Romney had a razor-thin 46-45 percent edge earlier this month, after the first presidential debate (October 7-9). Interviews in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy were completed before Monday evening, when the hurricane made landfall. Independents give the edge to Romney by seven percentage points (46-39 percent). That’s down from a 12-point advantage in early October. There’s a gender gap in vote

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

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

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. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
