“Huma? Hey, Honey?
Was I Happy Before
I Started Running for Mayor?”

New Yorker Magazine, by Mark Jacobson

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 7/15/2013 8:18:10 AM

A year and a half ago, if you told most New Yorkers that Anthony Weiner would be running for mayor at the top of the polls, the response might have been: What city, what century, what dimension? Mayor Weiner? Back on a windy night in 2012, when the former congressman and I sat down to dinner at a Flatiron-district café, what were the chances of that? It was less than a year past the infamous “sexting” scandal, when, after a period of bald-faced lying, Weiner admitted, yes,

Puh-leeze! New Yorkers are notoriously liberal and vote for morally and politically corrupt people all the time. Oh, they can get indignant and demand an apology. But wait a few months, maybe a year, say you´re sorry, and they´ll kiss and make up in a New York minute.

In a Democracy, the plurality of voters gets to choose the leaders they want--and ultimately deserve. The problem is that the rest of us are also stuck with them.

I won´t read this metrosexual New Yorker tripe either.
But the photo of Weiner gave me a revelation.
Huma chooses to spend her time between Hillary and Weiner, two of the most obnoxious, nasty and visually unpleasant persons on the planet.

No way in hell she doesn´t have some ulterior motives.

Reid: ‘Something Will Happen’ To Stop
Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy
CBS/Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 4/23/2014 8:04:19 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., disagreed

   

 

  


 
Obama administration tightens
grip on intelligence

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is tightening its control over intelligence and limiting officials’ interactions with reporters. The new directive is intended to prevent unauthorized disclosures. It limits contact with the media for officials with the 17 intelligence agencies to authorized personnel only, such as designated press officers and the top two officials of intelligence divisions. The directive was issued in March and applies to unclassified intelligence information. If an unauthorized intelligence official speaks to a member of the media, the official is to report that interaction. The new rules come nearly a year after a

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who will be arriving in New York this afternoon for a trip trying to lure businesses to the Longhorn State, offered a Texas-sized take-down of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s record on job creation this morning and challenged him to a debate. “I’d be more than happy to sit down and have a thoughtful conversation, a debate with Gov. Cuomo over the issues that face us as a state and talk about the economic policies and compare New York to Texas,” said Mr. Perry, speaking on New York Post columnist Fred Dicker’s Live from the State Capitol radio show.

The painting caught Pei-Shen Qian’s eye, but it was the price that affected him deeply. Mr. Qian, browsing in a booth at a Manhattan art show a decade ago, had stumbled across his own work: a forgery of a modern masterpiece that he had recently completed. He had sold it for just a few hundred dollars, to a man prosecutors now say was Mr. Qian’s co-conspirator in a long-running, $33 million art swindle, whose success stemmed in large measure from Mr. Qian’s skill.

A report that NBC employed a ‘psychological consultant’ to interrogate the Meet the Press moderator’s wife and friends about how he connected with viewers has been met with incredulity and amusement. Did NBC News stage a psychological intervention on Meet the Press moderator David Gregory, hiring a shrink to interrogate his wife and friends last year in hopes of discovering what can be done to save his cratered ratings? Reaction in the television news business varied from gobsmacked to amused after The Washington Post´s media reporter, Paul Farhi, suggested on Monday that the network seemed to have done just that, “commissioning

New York cat lovers will have the purr-fect place to grab coffee this weekend. Pet food maker Purina is opening a pop-up cat cafe at 168 Bowery on Thursday, and billing it as America’s first feline coffee shop. Cat cafes are big in Japan where feline fanatics often have barriers to pet ownership because of building rules or just the small space where they live. So instead of owning a feline of their own, animal lovers often go to cat cafes to sip their favorite beverage while rubbing paws with cats wandering freely around the store. Purina’s cat cafe is set to open on

Ukraine crisis: Joe Biden tells

Posted By: Toledo- 4/22/2014 8:37:06 AM     Post Reply
US Vice President Joe Biden met Ukraine´s new pro-Western leaders on Tuesday to offer firm American backing as Washington and Moscow traded blame over an unravelling peace deal to defuse the country´s deep crisis. Biden began by meeting acting President Oleksandr Turchynov in Kiev´s parliament building, with US officials saying that the onus was firmly on Moscow to fulfill the accord meant to reduce tensions in the worst East-West confrontation since the Cold War. Under the deal signed by Ukraine, Russia, the United States and the European Union last week, pro-Kremlin rebels holding a string of eastern towns were supposed to disarm

First ladies, almost from the beginning, have taken up lofty causes when they move into the White House. Dolley Madison concerned herself with the plight of orphans. Ellen Wilson, shocked by the squalid streets of Washington, took up urban housing (and even got a bill through Congress, the first FLOTUS to do so). Rosalynn Carter made her signature issue mental health. Nancy Reagan took on youth drug abuse. Hillary Rodham Clinton made health care her cause. Laura Bush pushed reading. And Michelle Obama took on the weighty issues of — fitness and food. Oh, and fat kids. This first lady has been

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

He’s an Oscar whiner. Legless Olympian Oscar Pistorius took acting lessons to prep for his sobbing testimony in his sensational murder trial, claims a top South African journalist. Jani Allan, a former columnist for the South African Sunday Times, claims her “close friend” — a famous South African actor — coached Pistorius for his appearance in the courtroom drama. “I have it from a reliable source that you are taking acting lessons for your days in court,” Allan wrote in an open letter to Pistorius she posted on her blog. “Your coach has an impossible task,” quipped Allan, 60, whom

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,
