Mel Reynolds deported from
Zimbabwe, official says

Chicago Tribune & Wire Services, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/24/2014 9:18:30 AM

Former U.S. congressman Mel Reynolds was deported from Zimbabwe on Sunday after he pleaded guilty to staying in the southern African country on an expired visa, a senior immigration official said Monday. Reynolds, 62, was arrested at a Harare hotel last week and was fined $100 by a magistrate court. But the court dismissed additional pornography charges against him on a technicality after the prosecution failed to clear the charges through the Prosecutor-General´s office as required by law. "We deported him as ordered by the court, but I am sorry that we are not in a position to discuss details

He probably couldn´t afford the air fare, so he opted to be deported at the expense of the Zimbabwe Government. Too bad Zimbabwe couldn´t just deport him to the country next door.

Maybe the Clinton FOundation could pay his way back.

I was watching the news and WGN showed stock footage of him. He literally groped a woman´s chest while giving her a hug. She politley (looked) to force his hand away, but I think this was from a few years ago when he ran for office.

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

A young woman claims she spent an entire flight in 2011 in the cockpit being entertained by one of the pilots who was flying the missing Malaysian Airlines plane. Jonti Roos, who is who is currently living in Melbourne during a year-long stay in Australia, said she and her friend Jaan Maree were waiting to board their flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur three years ago when two pilots plucked them out of the queue and asked them if they would like to ride in the cockpit.

House Republicans on Tuesday released a scathing report on Lois Lerner’s involvement in the Internal Revenue Service’s scrutiny of advocacy groups, accusing the former IRS official of trying to crack down on the nonprofit organizations that have grown increasingly powerful in recent elections. The report, released by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said Lerner “led efforts to scrutinize conservative groups while working to maintain a veneer of objective enforcement.” It also accuses her of obstructing the oversight committee’s investigation and misleading Congress about the IRS’s efforts as well as her own conduct.

Wind farms vs. hurricanes?

The topic of man-made climate change doesn´t just stir heated debate. It raises serious concerns - and even fuels calls for taxes on carbon emissions. But regardless of whether you accept the expert consensus that human activity has contributed significantly to global warming over the last century, you might be encouraged by a new theory about our supposed capacity to affect the weather. From a recent release from Stanford University: "Computer simulations by Professor Mark Z. Jacobson have shown that offshore wind farms with thousands of wind turbines could have sapped the power of three real-life hurricanes, significantly decreasing their

KUALA LUMPUR- Malaysia´s military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country´s east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday. In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew. Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.

An Oregon family were forced to dial 911 after their 22-pound pet cat went berserk and held them hostage in their own home. Lee Palmer and partner Teresa Barker were holed up in their Portland bedroom Sunday after bad mog Lux scratched their 7-month-old child in the face before seriously freaking out. Even their pet dog fled to safety, terrified that the puss would cause further damage. Phoning for help at 7:55 p.m., Palmer told dispatchers the cat had attacked their child and was now trying to force its way into their room. "I kicked him in the rear and

As part of its continuing series on the “Future of the Internet,” the Pew Research Center asked a group of thinkers in science and technology about what the Web – turning 25 years old on Wednesday — might look like in another 10 years. Their responses speak of a world that is connected deep within homes and well beyond borders. Pew collected the answers into theses buckets of a hopeful and not-so hopeful future (with some other random ideas ginned up, too). Pew posed an open-ended question asking for predictions about the role of the Internet in people’s lives in

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, escalated a behind-the-scenes dispute with the CIA by publicly accusing the spy agency of secretly searching a Senate computer system, an act she said undermines congressional intelligence oversight and may have violated the law. The expanding dispute has opened a rift between the CIA and the Senate committee that oversees it and often has defended it. Already, some CIA officers could face criminal prosecution as a result of a Justice Department investigation of the incident. "I have grave concerns that the CIA search may well have violated the

McCain calls bad poll number ´bogus´

Posted By: JoniTx- 3/11/2014 10:58:15 AM     Post Reply
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called a poll that finds he has a 30 percent job approval in Arizona “bogus” on Monday. “There is a bogus poll out there,” McCain said on Fox Business’ “Cavuto.” “I can sense the people of my state. When I travel around, which I do constantly, they like me, and I am very grateful.” McCain did not mention any poll by name, but a poll released last week by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning group, found that McCain’s 30 percent approval in his home state was the lowest of any senator in the country. McCain mentioned

The race to succeed long-time Representative Bill Young of Florida´s 13th congressional district who died in October will be decided, as all special elections are, by who can get more of their base supporters to the polls. But as a preview of the November mid terms, the race probably isn´t very relevant. The Democrats appear to have all the advantages. Alex Sink, Florida’s former chief financial officer and the Democrats’ 2010 gubernatorial nominee, had a head start on the race as she was virtually unopposed in the Democratic primary. Her ability to raise early money was in contrast to Jolly,

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama joined comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Funny or Die web-based interview program, Between Two Ferns. The interview immediately became contentious when Galifianakis launched into a series of critiques of Obama’s presidency to which the president was unable to respond… because they were asinine. “When I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised,” the president began. “In 2013, you pardoned a turkey,” Galifianakis noted. “What do you have planned for 2014?” “We’ll probably pardon another turkey,” Obama replied. The interview became tense when Galifianakis probed Obama over what he appeared to

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can.

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know

Explaining that his son spent his entire life troubled by mental illness, Lanza, a vice president for GE Energy Financial Services said that in his opinion he thought his youngest boy was an undiagnosed schizophrenic.
