He was once known for his love of junk food. But Bill Clinton´s efforts to slim down have clearly paid off. The former US President, 66, looked remarkably trim as he left a plush London restaurant on Thursday night. Mr Clinton had been enjoying a dinner with actor Kevin Spacey at the upmarket Scott´s seafood restaurant in Mayfair, after giving a speech in the capital. The former president, formerly known for his love of burgers, barbecue and junk food, changed to a strict vegan diet in 2010 after fears over his health. Clinton, 66, had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004
Comments: He looks ill on these photos. The brown 3-piece suit doesn´t help.
Yeah, the Rhodes ´Scholar´ who cheered with the Russian Communists against America, who swindled people with whitewater, who stood by while AIDS infected blood from prisoners of the Arkansas prison system was sold to a blood bank in Canada, who took bribes from a Red Chinese general to allow missile tech to be sold to China, who made low sulfur coal acreage in the US southwest into a national ´park´ after a contribution from southeast Asian mining owners, who had private thugs threaten witnesses, who used state troopers to set up women for his sexual assualts, who lied to congress under oath, who treated the WTC bombing, etc. etc.... Yeah, I´m sure he looked great. The fawning, propagandist, neocommunist news media is the root of most of the ills of the world.
#8, My Niece is a Vegan and ended up in the hospital with severe stomach problems. It is definitely not a healthy life style. Vegetarian is better as it allows for cheese and eggs. Too much soy has shown to be bad for you. And to #2., no one is jealous of vegans that I know, and I know a lot of Atkins followers who are fit, healthy and happy. Me being one. We are not all "tubs of lard."
Loved how the articles also commented about the PIAPS being caught by photographers with unwashed hair and little makeup. In other words, her normal public appearance. It also appears she´s working on a mustache.
So he eats in an upscale London restaurant with Kevin Spacey: What does he order? Pinto beans al Nicoise, apple cubes al Provincal and tomatoes Milanese washed down with a Perrier? Spacey probably had a filet with a bottle of Cabernet.
We the taxpayer paid for his trip and meal. #5 gave a partial look at the traitor Bill Clinton. If we had honest people in the tv news many thousands of people would be alive today and millions of others would have a job.
He does look ill. I have a 90 year uncle who looks far better.
I will be glad to see him die. I will speak ill of him now and after he dies.
Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.
I´m surprised the vegans among us didn´t catch the bit about seafood and the omission of fish and seafood from his "diet list". Tsk, tsk.
And tell me there is no leather in his shoes, no wool (and maybe silk) in his suit and other clothing, no animal by-products in his soap?
He is a kind of vegeterian. Kind of. Sort of. If you don´t look too closely.
I know a few vegetarians who were told by their doctors that they must eat some meat. These were not vegans, but vegetarians. They ate cheese and eggs, but the doc said it wasn´t good enough. These women are cancer survivors.
He looks like Steve Jobs did six months before he died. I don´t think Clinton looks that way because he´s a Vegan. I think he´s SICK and doesn´t want the country to know it. It´s probably just more spin, something the Clintons are very good at!
Vegetarians, and especially vegans, are more likely to go blind due to lack of protein. There is also evidence that such a diet can actually cause the brain to shrink. And no amount of beans and rice or soy protein comes close to supplying the protein that meat gives to the body.
Ever wonder why the vast majority of vegetarians and vegans are libs? Now you know - shrunken brain = shrunken intelligence.
If you look at the entire animal world you´ll see that the eyes of carnivores are generally located on the front of the head, to improve the ability to hunt. See humans, dogs, cats, owls etc. The vegetarians animals are the prey and have eyes located on the sides of the head so that they can graze and still keep an eye out for the predators. See horses, deer, rabbits, etc. It´s not natural for a human to be a vegetarian. I always laugh when I hear vegetarians talk about the glories of ´natural´ foods.
#5 thanks for the re-cap, I forgot some of his sins.
Kevin Spacey is a nasty Leftist. He hates Conservatives. He makes horrible comments about Conservatives, then apologizes just to keep the money flowing. Do not give Mr. Spacey one dime of your hard earned money.
Just when our national Kennedy-idolatry finally appeared to be on the wane, along came this other trashy, criminal "dynasty" family ... destined to be worshipped uncritically by the MSM ... the Clintons.
Bill Klintoon, a/k/a the Docker Dropper, Peyronie Pete, Slick Willie. Why does Bill Klintoon wear pants? To keep his ankles warm.
He still has those long, boney fingers. You know, the ones he poked in your face (from the TV) and said "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky." May not be an exact quote, but close enough. It´s been awhile.
He looks much worse on tv than he does in the pictures in the article. They must have photoshopped the massive bags under his eyes. When he was side by side with George H. W. Bush (41) a few years ago, Bush actually looked younger than BJ.
I think one of the reasons he looks frail and sickly is because of damage from the heart operation. I read that 50% or more of heart surgery patients suffer from brain damage after being on a heart-lung machine. These patients suffer from memory loss and a changed personality in mild cases. The medical profession even has a name for this common condition, it is called being a "pump head". I think it is a national scandal.
#35 - OK that was an inelegant choice and I admit it. Should have used Mark Steyn´s phrase ´lardbuttus americanus´ instead? Just kidding.
Say you are equally offended by the comparison of vegans to AIDS and cancer victims, ill and near death etc.
Not smug at all, just feel a little annoyed when people who get short of breath after climbing a few steps think of me, a long distance runner, as unhealthy :-) and I am in the upper half of normal weight range (BMI 23, normal being 18.5-24.9).
The deaths of two French soldiers in the Central African Republic (CAR) have reminded the world of the deadly seriousness of France’s latest foreign foray to confront Islamists in their former colonies. Hundreds of troops are still in Mali, where they have helped force insurgents out of their northern city strongholds and into the desert. [Snip] While Britain and America continue their disengagement from overseas incursions in Afghanistan and Iraq, it has fallen to the French to take up the challenge posed by the spread of militant Islam in Africa. Long the region’s self-styled policeman, France has experience restoring regimes
Canada Post will phase out home delivery in urban areas over the next five years as the postal service struggles to rein in persistent losses. Under a five-year plan released on Wednesday, the cost of stamps will also rise and as many as 8,000 jobs will be eliminated. But the agency says it will also open more retail locations across Canada. The service faces a projected 1bn Canadian dollar ($943m; £576m) loss by 2020 without "fundamental changes". Canada Post lost C$73m in the third quarter of the current fiscal year, CBC News reported.
The National Security Agency has been accused of using Google cookies to pinpoint targets the government wants to hack. In a NSA presentation slide released by Edward Snowden and seen by the Washington Post, the agency appeared to be using internet tracking techniques usually used by advertisers. While the Pref Cookies reportedly being used don´t reveal personal information, they can uniquely identify a person´s browser. The NSA and GCHQ in the UK have been using the tracking files to identify potential targets who are using the internet, according to the documents. As well as listing visits to websites, the cookies
The US and Britain have suspended all non-lethal assistance in to northern Syria after forces from the new Islamic Front seized headquarters and warehouses belonging to the opposition’s Supreme Military Council. Fighters from the Front, a union of six major rebel groups, took control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) bases at the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria’s northwestern border with Turkey late on Friday. Turkey shut its side of the border crossing, in Hatay province, due to a reported increase in clashes on the Syrian side, customs sources told the Reuters news agency. There was no immediate confirmation from
There’s a YouTube clip I can’t stop watching called “Margaret Thatcher don’t want to jump”. The then Prime Minister has just reached the end of a TV interview, and the presenter is asking her to “make a little jump”. “Why?” It’s “just a gimmick” that all her guests do. Thatcher raises an eyebrow. “I bet that you wouldn’t do it,” says the presenter, becoming at the same time conciliatory, wheedling, insistent. “Just a little jump.” Come on. “Gorbachev did it.” “But what”, inquires the Iron Lady icily, “is the point of it?” “It just shows another side
NHS patients will benefit from a new brain scan that can help doctors confirm or rule out a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. David Cameron will announce tomorrow that Britain will be the first place in the world where the revolutionary technique will be available for free. The test will mean that, for the first time, doctors will be able to definitively rule out Alzheimer’s in some patients for five years. Currently, one in five cases of the disease is misdiagnosed. It could also help doctors to confirm an existing diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, ensuring people get the treatment they need.
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush´s following Hurricane Katrina. The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 percent saying they disapprove. The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 percent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 percent margin.
Secretary of State John Kerry boasted in a congressional hearing on Tuesday that a recent nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran will make America ´more secure than the day before we entered this agreement.´ [Snip] But ´this agreement halts the progress of Iran´s nuclear program--Halts the program!´ he boasted. ´Iran´s nuclear program will not move forward. Under this agreement, Iran will have to neutralize--end!--its entire supply of 20 percent-enriched uranium, which you know is a short step away from weapons-grade uranium.´ ´Iran will forfeit all--not part--all of that 20 percent [enriched material], that 200-kilogram stockpile. Gone!´
More than 100 members of the BBC have been deployed to South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela’s death and memorial service. Staff were flown out to cover the story in the week the corporation received more than 1,000 complaints from viewers about local news and the storms being ignored to cover his death. (Snip) Far fewer staff were dedicated to the coverage on other channels, with nine people including a presenter, correspondents and camera operator from ITV sent out to South Africa. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: “Over a ten-day period we expect to have deployed around 120 journalists, technicians and support
President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today, an unprecedented gesture of friendship which occurred, fittingly, at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela. [Snip] Obama greeted a long line of world leaders and heads of state attending the memorial service in Johannesburg after flying to South Africa with a U.S. delegation which included former presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Jimmy Carter along with their families. Obama also shook hands with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has clashed with the U.S. President over alleged National Security Agency spying. He was later spotted in the VIP stands posing
Barack Obama today paid an emotional tribute to Nelson Mandela, calling the South African leader a ´giant of history´ as he spoke at a memorial service in a stadium where around a third of the seats were mysteriously left empty. The U.S. President, who moments earlier had shaken hands with Cuba´s Raul Castro in a historic moment of reconciliation, receivied a rapturous reception for his eulogy at the service in Johannesburg´s FNB Stadium, which started an hour late in the pouring rain. Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy president of the ruling ANC party who opened the proceedings, said: ´In our tradition,
To those of you who may be alarmed by the notion that the US security services, helped by their obliging colleagues at GCHQ, might have access to all your internet activity--private emails included--Sir Malcolm Rifkind offers soothing reassurance. [Snip] Responding to the fact that a very impressive group of US web companies and internet providers has sent a letter to President Obama expressing concern at this wholesale hoovering up of the internet activityof ordinary citizens, Sir Malcolm observes that the signatories "have not concluded that what is happening…is necessarily unlawful." No, indeed they haven´t--because that is precisely the question at
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
