SYDNEY — Flamboyant Australian billionaire Clive Palmer on Thursday said he plans to sue Rupert Murdoch over unflattering allegations and claimed the media mogul´s estranged wife is a Chinese spy. Palmer, best known for building a replica of the Titanic and who is running for election in Australia on Saturday, seethed over a comment piece questioning his wealth and whether he was indeed a university professor and a mining magnate, as he claims. Murdoch´s flagship The Australian ran the story on its front page under the headline "Why we need to worry about the real Mr Palmer", alleging he was

99.9% of all Chinese who have family living in China are Chinese spies of one sort or another. No surprise there.

Papa Doc Murdoch and Papa Doc Jackson.

The latter has a son who contracted bi-polarity at the same time he was charged with embezzlement.

The former has a son who lost an iphone with $18,000 of billing history, at the same time Scotland Yard demanded it be produced and handed over as evidence.

Al Roker Rails Against NYC Mayor
de Blasio: ‘Don’t Blame Weather
for YOUR Poor Policy’
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/13/2014 2:09:03 PM     Post Reply
Everyone’s favorite TODAY Show weatherman Al Roker was up in arms this morning over how New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has been handling the massive snowstorm pounding the east coast, and went on an epic Twitter tirade against the mayor. He even made a non-weather prediction of his own: “Long range DiBlasio forecast: 1 term.” Roker blasted the mayor’s poor handling of the snowstorm and lacking a clear plan, calling it “ridiculous” that officials are warning people to stay off the roads but schools were still open, a move that was also blasted by the United Federation of

Sid Caesar, Comedian of Comedians
From TV’s Early Days, Dies at 91
New York Times, by Mervyn Rothstein and Peter Keepnews    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/13/2014 7:52:23 AM     Post Reply
Sid Caesar, a comedic force of nature who became one of television’s first stars in the early 1950s and influenced generations of comedians and comedy writers, died on Wednesday at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 91. His death was announced by Eddy Friedfeld, a family spokesman. Mr. Caesar largely faded from the public eye in his middle years as he struggled with crippling self-doubt and addiction to alcohol and pills. But from 1950 to 1954, he and his co-stars on the live 90-minute comedy-variety extravaganza “Your Show of Shows” dominated the Saturday night viewing habits of millions of Americans.

Afghanistan releases 65 prisoners
against objections from US

Afghanistan has released 65 accused militants from a former US prison despite protests from the American military, which says the men are Taliban fighters who are likely to return to the battlefield to kill coalition and Afghan troops. The move further strains relations between Washington and the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, whose increasingly anti-American rhetoric and refusal to sign a long-negotiated bilateral security deal have increased uncertainty before the withdrawal this year of most international combat troops. Karzai ordered the release of the detainees several weeks ago, after his government took over the prison from US troops. The decision prompted angry denunciations

Can Wendy Davis Have It All?

One sunny Friday morning in late January, Wendy Davis took me on a two-hour tour of the life she led just a decade or so ago, back when she was a city councilwoman and the world knew nothing of her or the pink running shoes she wore during her epic filibuster, or her ambition to be elected this November as a Democratic governor in the deeply Republican state of Texas, or the way her parenting has become a point of debate in whether she’s a suitable candidate for that office. We were in Fort Worth, where Davis, who is a state senator, has lived for about 35 of her 50 years, most in utter obscurity.

   

 

  


 
‘Don’t Run’: MSNBC’s Krystal Ball
Urges ‘Anti-Union’ Hillary to Pass on 2016
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/12/2014 3:35:15 PM     Post Reply
MSNBC host Krystal Ball told her audience on Tuesday that she admires former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and she would support her over any Republican and most Democrats to replace President Barack Obama. However, she said that America’s present “existential crisis” requires a candidate that is not as “anti-union” and friendly to Wall Street as Clinton. For that reason, Ball urged Clinton not to run and for freshman Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to get in the race. Ball began by saying that she supported Clinton in 2008 over Obama. She said she longed for the competence and respect in

Russian volunteers smuggle Sochi strays

TUAPSE, Russia — The purple Chrysler PT Cruiser sped through the night, barreling around rain-slicked hairpin curves on a clandestine rescue mission. It was 3 a.m. Ahead glared the harsh lights of a security check point. Sochi was 60 miles behind. This was the outer edge of the “Ring of Steel” guarding the Olympics, and the Chrysler was aiming to get past it, to break free into the vast Russian countryside that lies beyond. The back of the car was crowded with uneasy, bewildered passengers. Most were drooling out of anxiety. One had thrown up several times, but at this moment

On Tuesday evening, Fox liberal contributor Kirsten Powers echoed the sentiments of National Journal‘s Ron Fournier who explained how he has grown weary of defending the Affordable Care Act during its troubled rollout. Fournier first expressed such lamentations on Fox’s Special Report and again in a Tuesday column entitled “Why I’m Getting Sick of Defending Obamacare.” “I’m going to say amen, brother, because it’s exactly how I feel,” Powers said on Wednesday’s Special Report. “People who have supported the law, who support universal health care, are constantly put in the position of having to defend this president, who has really incompetently put

GOP Report Concludes Military Could
Not Have Changed Outcome in Benghazi

The attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, continues to be a line of political attack against the Obama administration, but a new report from the Republican-led House Armed Services Committee belies at least one aspect of the popular conservative criticism, that U.S. forces were ordered to “stand down” when they could have saved lives in Benghazi. The Republican-authored report’s findings are, by no means, a love letter to President Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For example, the report concludes that U.S. personnel in Benghazi were woefully

Fayetteville, Arkansas - Shortly before Hillary Clinton’s effort to pass health care reform died in the summer of 1994, the first lady asked a close friend and confidant for advice on “how best to preserve her general memories of the administration and of health care in particular.” When asked why, according to the friend’s June 20, 1994, diary entry, Clinton said, “Revenge.” That exchange is among thousands of pages of notes, letters, and diary entries penned by Diane Blair, a political science professor and longtime Clinton friend whose papers were donated to the University of Arkansas after her death in

Obama’s Arbitrary Health
Care Flexibility
National Journal, by Major Garrett    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/12/2014 8:36:00 AM     Post Reply
The Affordable Care Act means what it says and says what it means. Until it doesn’t. The arbiter is President Obama and a phalanx of health care advisers and political strategists. Together, they try to implement what even Obama’s heartiest loyalists concede is an onerous and complicated law. They do this amid myriad Democratic midterm anxieties. And frothy Republican objections. But it’s time to concede that no one has been more adept or aggressive about delaying and defanging Obamacare than Obama himself. Systematically and with an eye toward his party’s immediate political troubles, Obama has reshaped, photo-shopped, reimagined, and reengineered Obamacare. It all

He was hooked on heroin and torn between two women. Doomed actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was in constant torment over his feelings between two women — his longtime girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell, and his new flame, a law enforcement source told the Daily News on Tuesday. The source didn’t identify the other woman. Hoffman had three children — son Cooper, 10, and daughters Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5 — with O’Donnell. They started dating in 1999 while Hoffman was directing “In Arabia We’d All Be Kings.” O’Donnell, then a costume designer on the film, had their son a few years later.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Every year, prior to Valentine’s Day, the Vermont Teddy Bear Co. runs ads advising guys that the most romantic thing in the world – the best gift a love-struck guy can give his girl – is a teddy bear. This year’s ad features “Big Hunka Love Bear.” Big Hunka is 4½ feet tall, and the company says he’s “stuffed with more than enough love to last a lifetime.” Hey, giving your girl a cute little teddy bear for Valentine’s Day could be a sweet thing to do. But, it’s the way these ads are put together that cause the creep-out: the girl

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before.

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large. After all, millions of Americans are mired in unemployment, underemployment, and hopelessness. So in the face of all this, Michelle
