Houston Chronicle reporter fired for
stripper gig lands new journalism job

Fox News, by Joshua Rhett Miller

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/16/2013 9:41:09 PM

A reporter who was fired last year from the Houston Chronicle after she was outed as a stripper has landed a new journalism job. Sarah Tressler, 30, was fired in April as a society reporter for the newspaper after failing to inform her supervisors of her after-hours career, which she chronicled on her blog, “Diary of an Angry Stripper.” (Snip) She’s now a reporter for the San Antonio Express-News, covering “cops, crime and general mayhem,” according to her Twitter account, which has more than 1,500 followers. After hiring celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, Tressler sued her former

Comments:
As a barista, after graduating from journalism at New York University, she became an exotic dancer to pay the bills [or is it the other way around?]. Anyway, for those seeking a security clearance, just leave out any employment where you were an "independent contractor," and Gloria Allred will be there to sue to keep your "government" job.

If she is talented as a stripper, why would she choose to dishonor herself by returning to the journalism job? How degrading!

Ha! Exactly, #4! At the Houston gentlemen´s clubs she was doing honorable work providing a service that people want, need, and desire [as Sean Hannity says often]. Why lower yourself into the scum-sucking world of journalism?

Reminds me of the old bumper sticker in the oilfields: Don´t tell Mama I work in the oilpatch; she still thinks I play piano in a whorehouse.

Ol Harry Truman used to play some piano for visitors to his Presidential Library. If the crowd was all men, he would say, "Early on in life I decided I had two career choices: politics, or playing piano in a whorehouse. And, to tell you the truth, there´s hardly any difference."

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is
fair game in presidential race
Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/18/2014 1:30:52 AM     Post Reply
There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

   

 

  


 
Capital One says it can show up
at cardholders´ homes, workplaces
Los Angeles Times, by David Lazarus    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/18/2014 1:09:51 AM     Post Reply
Ding-dong, Cap One calling. Credit card issuer Capital One isn´t shy about getting into customers´ faces. The company recently sent a contract update to cardholders that makes clear it can drop by any time it pleases. The update specifies that "we may contact you in any manner we choose" and that such contacts can include calls, emails, texts, faxes or a "personal visit." As if that weren´t creepy enough, Cap One says these visits can be "at your home and at your place of employment." The police need a court order to pull off something like that. But Cap One says it has the right to get up close and personal anytime, anywhere.

U.N. report catalogs North
Korean ´crimes against humanity´
Los Angeles Times, by Julie Makinen & Barbara Demick    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/18/2014 12:54:37 AM     Post Reply
Beijing - Torture, deliberate starvation and other abuses carried out by North Korean authorities — possibly on the orders of leader Kim Jong Un — are crimes against humanity and should be referred to an international court or tribunal for prosecution, United Nations investigators said Monday. A 400-page report catalogs practices long cited by defectors and human rights activists, but their inclusion in a comprehensive document compiled by a U.N.-appointed panel appears to be unprecedented. It was accompanied by a three-page letter to Kim warning that under international law he could be held responsible for atrocities committed by underlings.

Monica Lewinsky: Why GOP can´t stop
talking about Clinton scandal (+video)
Christian Science Monitor, by Peter Grier    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/17/2014 11:03:33 PM     Post Reply
Washington - The Monica Lewinsky scandal has returned to US politics, after a fashion - Sen. Rand Paul (R) of Kentucky raised it late last month on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying President Bill Clinton engaged in “predatory behavior” in his affair with the young intern in 1995 and 1996. Since then the Clinton/Lewinsky subject has arisen on many political chat shows as hosts ask guests to discuss its possible significance to a Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy. David Gregory asked Mitt Romney the Lewinsky question on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, for instance. The 2012 GOP nominee started off by

Obama, the shrinking imperialist president

Of all the time-honored failings for which we criticize sitting presidents — by "we" I mean pundits, academics and other members of the chattering phylum — two charges stand out: imperialism and shrinkage. Usually it´s one or the other. When the president is unpopular or when he´s lost control of his agenda or when he just seems inadequate to the demands of the job, the headline "The Incredible Shrinking Presidency" proliferates like kudzu. When the Republicans lost control of Congress in 2006, the Economist proclaimed "The Incredible Shrinking Presidency" of George W. Bush on its cover. Barack Obama has been

Trump fires top advisor &

Donald Trump couldn’t pass up the opportunity to say, “You’re fired” to an underling — even when the man offered to resign. Furious over a snarky Buzzfeed article about his political aspirations, the developer took a page out of his TV show, “The Apprentice,’’ and booted the adviser who had urged him to do the interview. “I told [Trump] when he fired me, ‘Sir, I’m willing to offer you my resignation.’ He didn’t accept that,’’ 32-year-old political consultant Sam Nunberg told The Post. But “this is not unfair, honestly,’’ insisted Nunberg, who lives on the Upper East Side. “I failed Mr. Trump, and that’s the long and short of it.”

Santa Barbara, Calif. - Mary Grace Canfield, a veteran character actress who played handywoman Ralph Monroe on the television show Green Acres, has died. She was 89. Her daughter, Phoebe Alexiades, says Canfield died of lung cancer on Saturday at a hospice in the California coastal town of Santa Barbara. Canfield had appearances on a number of TV shows during a four-decade career, including General Hospital and The Hathaways. She was Harriet Kravitz on four episodes of the 1960s series Bewitched. But she was best known for her role of Ralph Monroe in some 40 episodes of Green Acres,

Oklahoma City - An Oklahoma pharmacy has agreed not to provide Missouri with a made-to-order drug for an inmate´s execution scheduled for later this month, according to court documents filed Monday. According to the documents, The Apothecary Shoppe, of Tulsa, will not prepare or provide pentobarbital or any other drug for use in Michael Taylor´s execution. The documents ask a judge to dismiss the case that Taylor´s lawyers had filed against the pharmacy seeking to stop it from providing the execution drug. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Taylor´s attorney, Matt Hellman, said that as part of the deal,

Rancho Mirage, Calif. - President Barack Obama marked the five-year anniversary of a controversial economic stimulus plan by releasing a report on Monday saying that government spending averted a second Great Depression, setting off a new round of partisan debate about the decision. Obama had been in office only a month when he signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787 billion stimulus that Democratic majorities in both the Senate and House of Representatives passed over the objections of Republicans. Many Americans remain doubtful about how helpful the stimulus was for an economy that still

The Texas story of jobs, growth, and opportunity should be a model to celebrate, yet, there’s a new movement afoot to stomp out our enterprising spirit. Over the past decade, Texas has been an economic powerhouse. The state has created 3 out of every 10 American jobs over the last decade and recently surpassed California in tech export sales. (Snip) Today, political operatives are swarming the Lone Star State to turn Texas into a liberal swamp. At the same time, the Obama Administration is trying to make Texas buckle under a torrent of federal rules and regulations.

Why Lewinsky Shouldn´t

Bill Clinton uses a car-racing metaphor to explain the difference between rash and calm decision-making in politics. “The great drivers, when the cars get close, the turns get hairy, they calm down, and they see everything, and they act,” he says. “The ones who are fearful and can´t concentrate and can´t calm down, run into the wall.” Republican leaders should pay attention, because on the issue of whether Clinton’s sex life is relevant 14 years after he left office, they’re once again careening toward a wall. Sen. Rand Paul dredged up Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and his subsequent impeachment,

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen.

NBC is under fire after one of its reporters questioned bronze medal winning skier Bode Miller so much about the death of his brother he began to sob uncontrollably. Correspondent Christin Cooper interviewed Miller just moments after he finished third in the Super G fnal, making him both the most medaled skier in history and the oldest person to win an alpine medal at the Games.

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of his Sunday in his stocking feet at an Indonesian mosque, at one point beating a huge drum used to call Muslims to prayer.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

A new poll puts Obama’s false promise, “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it,” in perspective: 64% of Americans say ObamaCare would’ve never passed if Americans had known the truth in 2009. Moreover, the Fox news poll found the sentiment to be spread across all party lines, with 74% of Republicans, 68% of Independents and 54% of Democrats saying Obama’s unpopular healthcare program would never have passed. Even more troubling, 56% of Americans said ObamaCare was more about the government seizing control of citizens’ lives, versus just 40% who felt Obama’s plan was about improving healthcare.

An extensive collection of papers related to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s years in the Arkansas governor’s mansion remains under tight control at a public library in Little Rock, with access restricted by the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock. The documents could provide new insight into the early chapter of the Clintons’ political careers, as reporters take a second look at Hillary Clinton’s past in light of the information contained in
