Tina Brown slams Rihanna: Daily
Beast Editor-in-Chief calls the singer
´a big fat zero as a role model´

New York Daily News, by Rachel Maresca

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 2/8/2013 8:02:37 AM

Rihanna´s show of support for Chris Brown, the man who viciously beat her, at his court hearing Wednesday received a harsh verdict from Tina Brown. The editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast slammed RiRi via Twitter for the stand-by-your-assailant moment, calling the pop diva"a big fat zero as a role model for girls." The "Diamonds" singer, 24, sat front row in court on Wednesday next to Brown´s mom as the judge decided whether her not her on-again boyfriend completed the community service he was sentenced to after brutally assaulting her on the eve of the Grammy Awards in 2009.

What do you expect from a female pop music performer these days? At least 90% of them are simply in it for the money. They can´t sing to save their lives. They go into the studio and speak into a box. The producer then applies all manner of electronic processing to convert it into a tuneful, singing voice.

You live in that house, Tina Brown? Then shut up. Frank Sinatra and Eva Gardner. Ike and Tina Turner. Some couples are like that.

Tina Turner dumped the piece of garbage that was beating her and never looked back. And if Sinatra hit Ava Gardner while they were married, that would have come out a long time ago. Rhianna is a sad and emotionally sick young woman who needs help if she is getting pounded by that piece of garbage. Abusers are nothing more than cowardly bullies who are not men.

Beyonce Knowles is jealous of the improper relationship between her husband, rapper, Jay-Z and Rihanna. It is purported that Rihanna has had a sexual relationship with the much older rapper since she was a teenage girl hungry for fame and money.

I have never understood how a poster can "not have time for" a particular article and yet come on the thread and post a nasty reply. That takes time, too.

And they are not the ones who keep the site full of articles for everyone to peruse, read, or pass by as they choose.

So what´s with the nasty remarks?

Why Is Rand Paul Talking About

Atlantic Magazine, by Peter Beinart    Original Article

In recent weeks, one Republican after another has come forward to rebut the Democratic claim that the GOP is waging a “war on women.” The responses have ranged from homey (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers responding to Barack Obama’s State of the Union address by noting that she’d given birth just eight weeks earlier) to creepy (former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee saying Democrats think women can’t control their “libidos.”) But perhaps most puzzling has been the tack taken by Rand Paul, who in interview after interview after interview has accused Democrats of “hypocrisy” for claiming to support women’s rights while giving

This year, on the 15th season of NBC´s weight-loss show "The Biggest Loser," Rachel Frederickson did exactly what the show producers, the celebrity trainers and the audience asked her to: She lost the most weight. She lost so much weight, in fact, that many have decided she is now unhealthily thin. Jaws dropped at her final weigh-in. Social media exploded. At 5-foot-4 and 105 pounds, her body mass index is below what the National Institutes of Health considers healthy. I won´t speculate on her health. That´s for a doctor to determine, and hopefully she´s regularly seeing one. She says she´s "never felt

During a trip to Los Angeles last year, Hillary Clinton didn’t leave town before meeting with the man who wants to make her president: Jeffrey Katzenberg. It was spring. Clinton was a few months out from her job at the State Department. Hundreds of thousands of people were clicking “Like” on a Facebook page called “Ready for Hillary.” A small group of operatives in Washington were plotting to make the Democratic Party’s largest super PAC, Priorities USA Action, the biggest, best Clinton game in town. And Katzenberg, the short and intense 63-year-old movie executive funding Priorities, was positioning himself, publicly and privately,

Dissidents in Kazakhstan have been pressing for change in the country’s leadership, having grown tired of the 24-year rule of President Nazarbayev. He has a better idea: he will stay in power but change the name of his state. If the elaborate rebranding goes ahead, Kazakhstan will drop its “stan” and be dubbed Kazakh Eli. Both names mean the same — land of the Kazakhs — but the “stan”

A lot of important journalism begins with a simple, seemingly obvious question, like why traffic is snarled in New Jersey on the way into New York. Traffic coverage may be the lowest species in the dog-bites-man pantheon of news, except when it is not. John Cichowski writes the “Road Warrior” commuter column for The Record, a daily newspaper in northern New Jersey that covers Bergen County. In September, the editor of the newspaper, Martin Gottlieb, received a tip from the publisher that navigating onto the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee was taking hours. Mr. Gottlieb told Mr. Cichowski, who called the

Perhaps it is a coincidence that it happened to be The Jewish Press that caught the attention of security officials at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York on Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 5, but that fact certainly caught the attention of The Jewish Press reporters. Phyllis Chesler, one of the doyennes of the feminist movement, professor emerita of psychology and women’s studies at CUNY, ardent Zionist, and author, most recently of An American Bride in Kabul, which won the National Jewish Book Award for memoir this year, was traveling from New York to Florida Wednesday afternoon.

Rand Paul demands Dems return money

Sen. Rand Paul, who has been in a bit of a tiff recently with the Clintons, says that any Democrat who has raised campaign money with former President Clinton should return the cash to protest his sexual behavior in the White House. Speaking on C-Span’s “Newsmakers” program, in an interview airing Sunday, Mr. Paul said Democrats are being hypocritical by criticizing Republicans as waging a war on women while at the same time embracing Mr. Clinton, who was impeached for lying about a sexual relationship with a White House intern.

It’s time to leave Woody Allen alone. “What is your favorite Woody Allen movie?’’ This was the pointed question — fighting words, really — that kicked off an open letter written by the adopted daughter of the iconic New York City filmmaker and posted last weekend on a New York Times blog. Dylan Farrow, who now lives under another name, wrote that one day in 1992, Woody, a self-described claustrophobe, led her to a cramped attic in the Connecticut summer house owned by her mother, Mia Farrow, and told her to lie on her stomach and play with her brother’s electric train

Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview with CNN´s Kate Bolduan that he can´t formulate a "good" reason not to run for president in 2016. "There may be reasons I don´t run, but there´s no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run," Biden said in the interview, which aired Friday morning on CNN´s "New Day." Biden said, realistically, that a decision on his potential 2016 run would come next summer. One reason he might not run is the sizable polling gulf already between him and Democrats´ most logical candidate — former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to

It’s only February, but it’s already my favorite word — or phrase, I guess — of the year. (Who knows, by December it may be shortened to “joblock.”) It’s not euphonious or edgy, but it does offer insight into the unreality of the Democrats’ predicament. The Congressional Budget Office issued a politically explosive report this week, finding that Obamacare will reduce the number of hours Americans work by the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time jobs. This is different from killing 2.5 million jobs, Obamacare defenders are quick to insist. This will be a shortfall on the demand, not supply, side. In

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the
