Lewinsky scandal players:
Where are they now?

USA Today, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/7/2014 6:04:04 PM

From a Christmas shop to academia, key players in the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal took different paths in the years since the investigation that led to a president´s impeachment. Lanny Davis Davis served as special counsel to President Clinton and was a leading spokesman for the White House during the impeachment proceedings and other White House scandals. Davis went on to conduct a successful private practice in public relations and crisis communications, including publishing several books on how to publicly respond to a crisis. He is now executive vice president of Levick, a PR/communications firm.

Yes, Ken Starr is at Baylor in Waco and we´re mighty proud to have him.

The scandal was Bill Clinton´s lieing under Oath in front of a Federal Judge, and convincing Monica to also perjure herself.
He lied in testimony about his assault on Paula Jones. Monica just provided titillation to the entire sordid mess.

Bush 41 to Mark 90th Birthday
With Parachute Jump
Associated Press, by David Sharp    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/12/2014 11:30:52 AM     Post Reply
Kennebunkport, ME - Former President George H.W. Bush has celebrated his 90th birthday by making a tandem parachute jump near his summer home in Maine. The 41st president jumped out of a helicopter Thursday while harnessed to a retired member of the Army´s parachute team. He could be seen floating to the ground using a red, white and blue parachute. A spokesman says he landed safely and softly in Kennebunkport, out of the sight of reporters. With the jump, Bush made good on a promise from five years ago, when he also celebrated his birthday by skydiving. The first time Bush jumped from an

PHILADELPHIA — It´s rush hour in Philadelphia for thousands of baby toads as they hop across a busy residential street on a rainy summer night. Why do toadlets cross the road? To get to the woods on the other side — where they will live, eat mosquitoes and grow up to be full-sized American toads (bufo Americanus). After a couple of years, they´ll make the reverse trek as adults — unless they get squashed by a car. That´s where the Toad Detour comes in. The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education sets up a roadblock each year in the Roxborough neighborhood, rerouting cars so

Health Care Remains Drag for
Democrats as 53% Oppose Law

President Barack Obama is urging Democratic candidates to defend the health-care law in this year’s elections and turn it into a winning issue. Despite some progress, they’ve got a long way to go. Fifty-three percent of Americans oppose the law, even as the proportion of those saying it should be repealed has dropped to 32 percent, a Bloomberg National Poll shows. Several of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions do enjoy modest to robust popularity. That suggests Republicans may also need to update their message from the calls for repeal in the 2010 and 2012 elections, if they want to appeal to voters beyond

BOISE, Idaho -- In Facebook posts written before he vanished from his military base in Afghanistan, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl spoke of his frustration with the world and his desire to change the status quo. He criticized unnamed military commanders and government leaders and mused about whether it was the place of the artist, the soldier or the general to stop violence and "change the minds of fools." In his personal writings, he seemed to focus his frustrations on himself and his struggle to maintain his mental stability. Together, the writings paint a portrait of a young man who was dealing with two conflicts

The Saga of UT and Ryan O´Neal´s
Battle For Andy Warhol´s Farrah
Fawcett Portrait Has Finally Ended

The battle over possession of one of the two Farrah Fawcett portraits by Andy Warhol has been one of the weirder legal reality shows of the past few years. Both Ryan O´Neal (Fawcett´s former lover) and the University of Texas made a claim the painting in question. Fawcett, upon her death in 2009, left her art collection to her alma mater, a collection that included the two portraits by Warhol, painted during his friendship with Fawcett and O´Neal in the late seventies, with an estimated value in the neighborhood of $12 million each. However, O´Neal claimed that the reason there

Crunch Time for House Conservatives:
It’s Jeb Hensarling or Bust
National Journal, by Tim Alberta    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/12/2014 5:42:37 AM     Post Reply
For the sizable bloc of conservative House Republicans who have been fixated on injecting fresh blood into the upper-most echelons of GOP leadership, there are four members who they view as legitimate, acceptable candidates: Paul Ryan, Jeb Hensarling, Jim Jordan and Tom Price. Tuesday´s shocking primary defeat of Eric Cantor—and his subsequent announcement that he´ll step down as majority leader effective July 31—added urgency to the conservatives´ cause. Instead of waiting until November´s conference elections to shake up what they view as a moderate, risk-averse leadership team, they can now do so in next Thursday´s special election to replace Cantor, putting

After decades of winning reelection by margins seldom seen outside of Third World dictatorships, the octogenarian New York congressman has recently found himself in difficult Democratic primaries. He clearly doesn’t like it. “What the heck has he done besides saying that he’s a Dominican?” Rangel asked of State Sen. Adriano Espaillat, his main primary opponent, in a televised debate earlier this month. “He’s been one of my main supporters in the Congress. He’s the one who put out that exciting label for me, the lion of Lenox Avenue,” he added. “What changed his mind are two things: the district lines

CNN has drastically revised a claim it made, which was based on a graphical map from a pro-gun control group, which purportedly showed that 74 school shootings have occurred in the U.S. since the Sandy Hook massacre in Dec. 2012. The news outlet circulated the graphical map, which came from the group Everytown for Gun Safety, after a shooting that occurred Tuesday at a high school in Oregon which left two dead, including the 15 year-old gunman. Everytown for Gun Safety, which is backed by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, headlined their graphic “School Shootings in America Since Sandy Hook,”

Two and a half years after the last U.S. soldier departed, an al Qaeda offshoot is in control of Mosul and headed for Baghdad—and Iraq’s prime minister is requesting U.S. air strikes. It seems like only yesterday that Iraq’s prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, was celebrating as the last American soldiers left Iraq. Now, with an al Qaeda offshoot threatening to take Baghdad, Maliki’s government is quietly asking at least some troops—specifically airmen and drone pilots—to return. While Iraq’s government is not requesting a surge in U.S. ground forces like the one President Bush ordered in 2007, Maliki’s government has been asking for

   

 



 
Was it ‘crazy’ for this scientist

A famous picture from the 1918 flu pandemic shows so many rows of bedridden soldiers that it looks like an optical illusion — the double-mirror effect. It’s a jarring image to accompany jarring events that began in January 1918 and quickly subsumed the planet. Little about the Spanish flu, which would ultimately infect one-third of all souls on Earth and kill a staggering 50 million, makes sense. Most influenza outbreaks pick off the weakest among us: the young, elderly, and infirm. But this one, called the “greatest medical holocaust in history,” targeted and killed healthy adults. Even today, “its origin remains

Two Pennsylvania congressmen, one Democrat and one Republican, charge that officials within the national Department of Veterans Affairs tried to stall, if not block, their attempts to find out about hundreds of veterans on wait lists for years, waiting for health care appointments at the Pittsburgh VA. If the charges are true, the VA officials responsible should be terminated, chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Florida, told CNN. After stories emerged of long waiting lists for veterans trying to get appointments for health care within the VA system, on May 28, Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pennsylvania, received an unusual

The Revolution of ’94 saw Bill Clinton, just beginning his presidency’s third year, staring down the cannons of righteous Republican fury. However, Clinton’s clashes with a Republican Congress resulted in an era of economic expansion and fiscal responsibility. Obama may be faced with such a Congress himself, the results of which may be ominous. Clinton faced numerous disadvantages in his confrontation with this Republican majority. His policy and political missteps had delivered control of the House and the Senate to Republicans for the first time in almost 50 years. He confronted this Congress for the next six years, losing frequently and

College professor David Brat knocked off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday in the biggest congressional upset in years. Mr. Brat ran an underfunded campaign based in part on Mr. Cantor’s supposed support for comprehensive immigration reform, when Mr. Cantor has for months been seen by immigration reform advocates as the key roadblock to House legislation. Mr. Brat was so unknown that his Wikipedia entry was only two sentences before Tuesday night. Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., had support from radio host Laura Ingraham, who hosted a rally with him in a

The staggering Republican primary defeat tonight of Eric Cantor, the second highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives and the third most-powerful Republican in Washington, is a reminder of just how volatile American politics has become. And how responsive. Eric Cantor wasn’t supposed to lose. His own pollster had him up by, get this, 34 points the other week. He’d raised nearly $5 million, and in the past two weeks spent $1 million against his rival’s $79,000. Not enough. There’s a lot of triumphalist talk tonight about sending a message to Washington and the establishment vs. the outsiders and all

A bipartisan delegation of House lawmakers are circulating a measure to reprimand the Obama administration for violating a U.S. law mandating that the administration provide Congress with advance notice before releasing dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The resolution comes in response to White House efforts to keep Congress in the dark about its controversial decision to release five top Taliban prisoners in exchange for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel admitted in testimony to lawmakers Wednesday that the Obama administration intentionally and knowingly ignored the law, which mandates that Congress be given 30

The problem with Hillary Clinton’s recent statement of her financial troubles- in which she stated that she and her husband were “dead broke” when they left the White House- is not that her being well off would make it difficult to run as a Democrat, says Charles Krauthammer, but rather that it demonstrates her “intrinsic insincerity.” “She is continually crafting what she says, crafting what her position is going to be, crafting conduct to meet a certain perception,” he said on Thursday’s Special Report. “When you do that day in or day out…you trip up because you can’t remember the

It is just about impossible to keep up with all of the Obama administration scandals, but the corruption of the Internal Revenue Service ranks near the top. Unfortunately, it has gone hand in hand with Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s corruption of the Department of Justice. The perversion of law enforcement agencies for political ends is starkly revealed by the fact that in 2010, as part of its effort to stem the Tea Party movement, the IRS gave the FBI disks containing more than 1.1 million pages of documents on Section 501 non-profits, so that the FBI could selectively prosecute

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News. The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker. The race called shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern by the Associated Press. Brat’s victory gives the GOP a volatile outlook for the rest of the campaign season, with the party establishment struggling late Tuesday to grapple with the news and tea party conservatives relishing a surprising win. “This is an earthquake,”

Before he became a Taliban prisoner, before he wrote in his journal “I am the lone wolf of deadly nothingness,” before he ever joined the Army, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was discharged from the U.S. Coast Guard for psychological reasons, said close friends who were worried about his emotional health at the time. The 2006 discharge and a trove of Bergdahl’s writing — the handwritten journal along with other essays, stories and e-mails provided to The Washington Post — paint a portrait of a deeply complicated and fragile young man who was by his own account struggling to maintain his mental

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates “the worst stereotypes” by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders. “The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders — by an iconic American institution — only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes,” Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington. Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against
