Former beauty queen was
roughed up on United flight: suit

New York Post, by Susan Edelman

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/16/2017 8:11:13 PM

A former Miss Venezuela is suing United Airlines over a nightmarish midair incident in which a flight attendant handcuffed her and enlisted two burly men to forcibly remove her in a dispute that escalated after she asked for a pillow. Carmen Maria Montiel, a Houston journalist and mom, recounted her ordeal in sympathy for Dr. David Dao, the United passenger who was dragged off a flight last week after he refused to relinquish his seat. “I can only imagine how he felt,” she told The Post. “I will forever be terrorized for what happened to me.” Montiel was sitting in first-class aboard a

When you fly in the U.S. You are at their mercy. It is not going to change soon. For me, I will never fly the "not so friendly skies".

So, she read about the Dr. issue and suddenly decided to go public and file a lawsuit? Um, I know, United is the worst airline ever, etc. but this sounds like a bid for money and publicity. And like this woman was fighting with her husband more than with the flight attendant.

It´s my understanding that the suit was filed previously but just now in the news. Geez - United needs help, and not of the stupid-shoot-yourself-in-the-foot kind.

Maybe this is why I like Southwest.

One evening, I´m flying back home on a SW flight. Grab my aisle seat and get ready for the ride home. An attractive young lady asks if she can have the window seat (the middle seat remained vacant), and of course, I being the gentleman I am, arose and let her in.

Plane takes off and I immediately go to sleep. Awhile later, the flight attendant is bent over my seat, welcoming Miss Texas on the flight.

Which is how I slept with Miss Texas.

Read the article. Why she was flying with and sitting next to a husband with whom she was engaged in a bitter divorce is anyone’s guess. It ended up in a brouhaha in First Class, the husband (who had reported her misconduct to the flight attendants) apparently succeeded in having her moved to another part of the plane. Flight attendants believed she’d had too much to drink. She denies.

We end up at the end with a nice PR blurb on the former Venezuelan beauty queen and what she’s up to now. Oh, and she’s a “mom”.

Calling Gloria Allred!!!

Think about these stories from the point of view of keeping peace on a planeload of maybe hundreds of passengers. At what point does a disruptive passenger have to be dealt with for the wellbeing of all the others?

Ahead of a Friday Camp David meeting at which President Trump is expected to discuss the long-awaited way forward in Afghanistan with his team, the Taliban issued an open letter to Trump telling him that if the U.S. military hasn´t won the peace so far "you shall never be able to win it with mercenaries, notorious contractor firms and immoral stooges." Erik Prince, the founder of the former Blackwater security firm, has been lobbying heavily for a plan to shift reliance on the Afghanistan fight to private contractors.

An Australian woman experienced her third European terrorist attack in just three months, after being caught up in Thursday’s horrific events in Barcelona. Julia Monaco was in London during the deadly London Bridge attack and in Paris when an assailant claiming to be a ‘soldier’ of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) attacked a police officer with a hammer. Monaco, who only left Australia three months ago, had her narrowest escape Thursday when a van rammed into a crowd on Las Ramblas, killing 14 people and injuring more than 100. The 26-year-old Melbourne woman hid in a shopping mall in Placa de Catalunya during

Police were forced to intervene as scuffles broke out between far-right anti-Islam protesters and participants of a counter demonstration in Barcelona, following Thursday’s terrorist attack in the city. Anti-fascist and far-right groups organized simultaneous protests in Barcelona just one day after a terrorist attack claimed the lives of 14 people and injured 100 more. The Spanish far-right group La Falange assembled close to the La Boquería marketplace in the city center, just 500 meters from where a van plowed into a crowd of pedestrians on Thursday.

Elections: American democracy has a problem — a voting problem. According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It´s a troubling fact that puts our nation´s future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch´s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau´s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. As reported by the National Review´s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, "some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in

Armed Venezuelan soldiers caught

BOGOTA, Colombia A handful of Venezuelan soldiers — armed and in uniform — were caught in neighboring Guyana last week begging for food, local police reported, another sign of Venezuela’s deepening hunger crisis. Guyanese Police Inspector Christopher Humphrey said he’d gone to the border along the Amacuro river, which divides the two nations, to investigate reports that the Venezuelan military was stealing food from locals. But the three soldiers he encountered — two carrying military assault rifles — said they had come to beg for meals and hadn’t harmed anyone. Humphrey said the men had crossed into Guyana on a wooden

Zimbabwe’s first lady, Grace Mugabe, returned home on Tuesday from South Africa after failing to turn herself in to police in Johannesburg to face charges of assaulting a model in a hotel room. There was no immediate public comment on the case from Grace Mugabe, 52, a possible successor to her husband President Robert Mugabe, 93, who has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980. But Zimbabwe government sources confirmed she had returned home. “Yes, she is back in the country. We don’t know where this issue of assault charges is coming from,” said a senior government official, who declined to be named

Socialism has long been associated with shortages and nowhere is that more evident than in California, land of surf, sun, skiing, skateboarding and other youth-oriented pursuits. The socialists have managed to chase out the youth. Joel Kotkin and Wendell Cox report: Let’s start with the millennials, the population that was aged between 20 and 34 in 2015. Since 2000, the growth of this segment of the population has been, for the most part, very slow along the coastal regions, well below the 6 percent national average. In Los Angeles and Orange County, the youth population grew by roughly 3 percent,

There´s been some brouhaha about Columbia University´s Graduate School of Journalism´s new data journalism degree, which comes with a whopping $150,000 price tag for the three-semester Master´s degree. The lowly median annual wage for journalists is being repeatedly cited as reason for the questionability of the degree. At Forbes, Preston Cooper notes: The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job opportunities for reporters and correspondents will shrink by 8% over the next decade. These jobs currently pay a median annual wage of $37,820. I´m not buying that as reason for the questionability of the degree. Median is just that, median, and an

A handful of Democratic lawmakers have renewed their effort to get a powerful House Republican to investigate Deutsche Bank AG’s loans to President Donald Trump and the bank’s role in helping Russians move billions of dollars from Moscow to the west. In a letter to Jeb Hensarling of Texas, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Representative Maxine Waters of California, the committee’s ranking Democrat, urged him to issue subpoenas to Deutsche Bank.

President Trump shocked the foreign policy establishment and triggered the usual vitriol from Caracas with his re-declaration that a U.S. Marine invasion was a live possibility as a means of dealing with Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro. “We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary,” Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club. “We are all over the world and we have troops all over the world in places that are very, very far away,” Trump said. “Venezuela is not very far away and people are suffering and dying.” It was a restatement of a White House statement

SEOUL, South Korea — In China, the man threatening to fire missiles at the United States is often derided as a chubby brat. In the United States, a senator recently referred to him as “this crazy fat kid.” President Trump once called him “a total nut job.” But the target of all that scorn, Kim Jong-un, the 33-year-old leader of North Korea, has long been underestimated. Mr. Kim was the youngest of three sons yet leapfrogged his brothers to succeed his father, Kim Jong-il. Many analysts dismissed him as an inexperienced figurehead when he took power at 27; some predicted he would

The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something.

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

The Republican Party´s collective response to Donald Trump´s handling of the Charlottesville race riots turned uglier on Friday. Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor whom Trump has bashed relentlessly for more than two years, lashed out against him on Facebook for what he said was a hamfisted message during Tuesday´s press conference – and demanded a full-throated apology from the president.

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.
