Donald Trump announced today that he would pay to any charity of Obama‘s choice 5 million if he would release his passport app and his college records from Columbia because he wants to know more about BHO. 

I learned a lot about Daddy Obama who was a drunkard and a wife beater and a huge communist egomaniac. 

I bet Obama won’t bite this bait.

Janet Jackson’s newer, slimmer body

http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-body/news/janet-jackson-how-i-got-thin-2012104

Some think that the photo looks shopped as in photoshopped esp. around the waist.  I am sure she lost weight and so did I.  I’ve lost 30 pounds and my old clothes are falling off me so I had to buy a few new ones.  I have met my goal sooner due to the hot yoga classes and my simple diet. Janet is lying if she claims she does not use a scale.  When I did not use the scale is when I gained the most weight.  I weigh and record my weight every week usually on Sunday.  I might go for 5 more pounds loss since this last five went so well. 

 

At 5-foot-4, the “Rhythm Nation” singer had struggled to maintain a healthy weight for most of her career — until she joined the Nutrisystem program in late 2011.

“People can relate to me because I have lived it. I truly understand what it’s like to have a problem with weight loss, losing too much weight or gaining more than you desire,” Jackson, 45, tells Us Weekly. “It’s about keeping it off. We can all lose weight, but learning how to keep it off — maintaining it — is what’s difficult. Nutrisystem teaches you how to do that.”

 

Jackson doesn’t have a goal weight in mind, though “there was a time in my life where I did live by the scale,” she admits.

Santorum got JFK “all messed up” and now Rick won’t be the nominee

My first impression when I heard Saint Rick and his sick quip “I wanna throw up when I heard JFK‘s speech on absolute separation of state and church.” And then said Jack would not confer with men who were men of faith.  That’s a boldface lie.  Well Heloise had a chance to meet with the contenders recently in a dream and in the dream I “endorsed” Mitt Romney.  So, despite my back and forthing it looks like it will be Mitt the nominee for the GOP.  Sorry Rick but you blew it with me.

I’m getting a lot of credit on Twitter and Facebook today for my piece, but this is one of those rare times when I’d rather not be recognized, because – don’t tell my editors – what I did was easy. It took me exactly 10 seconds to Google JFK’s speech and another few minutes to read it. Then I cut and pasted Santorum’s comments next to JFK’s and voila, kids, I had a story. The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart credited me with a “deep-dive,” and I appreciate the praise, but really, I barely got my feet wet. (The Post’s own news story wasn’t any better than the Times’; Capehart was the first person on staff to note Santorum’s distortion more than 24 hours after it aired on ABC’s “This Week.”)

 

One dead among five shot in Ohio school Shooting

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/02/27/shooting-reported-at-ohio-high-school/?hpt=hp_t1

[Udpated 10:43 a.m.] A student at Chardon High School, Evan Erasmus, told CNN affiliate WEWS-TV that the suspect in Monday’s shootings may have posted a threatening message Sunday night on the social networking service Twitter.

“I think he said that he was going to bring a gun to school and I think that everyone just blew it off like he was joking,” Erasmus said.

IMO Alex Wagner is not black

Alex in 2001 she has aged

Here’s another observation I made about Alex that adds to my hypothesis that she is NOT black.  Her ear lobes are attached. That is far more common in whites observed than in other races.  Also I think I see a wedding band on her left hand.  That would indicate, although, not online, that she is married and is using her married name.

If I had photos or names of her parents I could end the speculation.  She looks Eurasian which equals NOT Black.

I borrowed and cropped this photo. She was at an event with a guy who looks Hispanic. From the bio I read she is half German and half black.  Wagner is a german name so perhaps her dad is German.  I don’t think she is married so that would be her maiden name.  She was born and raised here.   But if she is actually biracial and does not look black then she is by default white.

Given the naturally high percentage of European blood most blacks have including myself, even my blood type it is safe to say that Alex is more white than she is black at least 85%. She might marry black or think she is culturally black. But wait let’s look see at her pedigree. Where did she come from?

She is a native of DC and has hobnobbed with the rich and famous. I used to wear my hair exactly like she wears it on the show (not in the pic) for a long time. She went to Brown University which was my first choice except I was  so tired of cold weather and sunless days that I opted for California universities.

She went to Brown therefore IMO she ain’t black. Follow her on Twitter.

Qaddafi killed in home town

TRIPOLI, Libya — Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, the former Libyan strongman who fled into hiding after rebels toppled his regime two months ago in the Arab Spring’s most tumultuous uprising, was killed Thursday as fighters battling the vestiges of his loyalist forces wrested control of his hometown of Surt, the interim government announced.

Al Jazeera television showed what it said was Colonel Qaddafi’s half-naked corpse lying on the ground in Surt, with a bloodied face, lifeless open eyes and an apparent gunshot wound to the side of the head, as jubilant fighters fired automatic weapons in the air. The images punctuated an emphatic and violent ending to his four decades as a ruthless and bombastic autocrat who had basked in his reputation as the self-styled king of kings of Africa.

Obama‘s Midwest tour last week prompted more criticism and ridicule than support on Twitter, according to this week’s Hill Hexagon.

Regardless of what President Obama and his political advisers had hoped for, the three-state Midwest bus tour last week prompted far more criticism and ridicule than support in Twitter comments, according to this week’s Hill Hexagon.

 

An analysis of Twitter traffic by Crimson Hexagon over the days of the tour showed that 72 percent of the opinions expressed were negative, while 22 percent were neutral and only 6 percent were favorable.

Among the negative comments, 21 percent were generally negative toward Obama, 17 percent called it a campaign stunt, 15 percent complained about taxpayers picking up the tab, 12 percent offered derisive names for the tour — similar to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s “Magical Misery Tour” — and 6 percent complained that he was not in Washington working.

Kenneth Cole Wants You

Robert Kennedy, Jr. celebrating Ralph Lauren's...

to take a stand. He also sees a way to change the world and to make money at the same time. One issue, one item at a time at his new site called: http://wheredoyoustand.com/ or wheredoyoustand.com. Ken Cole who is married to the daughter of former governor Mario Cuomo, has a new web site he was touting on Morning Jew (my clever name for the show) and it’s a strange looking web site with a mix of twitter feed on one side and comments with a facebook connect on the other side and a list of issue at the opening all wrapped in black. Okay. These are BFFs of Robert Kennedy Jr. who probably met his girlfriend through them. You know the rich socialites who run NYC with his old but fresh fashion line. He courts controversy but that sells underwear and clothes.

But give it a look. I looked at the gay marriage issue question. But I got nothing to say there. I do my talking here. LOL

Jewish Hikers—Convicted Iranian Spies—Update

The two men both Jewish have been convicted by Iran for spying.  Don’t bother commenting that they are Christians who celebrate Christmas.  They are ethnic Jews end of story. That’s always the context I use the term, never solely as a religious group.  These hikers really strike me as Zionists but that we may never know. 

The Jewish woman hiker Sarah was set free for health reasons with a large bail paid first.  But the two men not so lucky: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/07/30/sarah-shourd-and-others-hope-iran-will-set-the-hikers-free.html

Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer were taken into custody while vacationing in Iraq two summers ago, after they got lost in the mountains and wandered into Iran. A third hiker, Sarah Shourd, was released last year on $500,000 bail. Even before the verdict was announced, the families of the hikers told Newsweek they would appeal a decision that didn’t bring their sons home immediately.

“To our many supporters: we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for your messages of support!” the family wrote on their Twitter account, upon announcement of the verdict. “What we need now more than ever is your support in getting Shane & Josh released. Peaceful communication is MOST supportive to us during this intensely challenging time, especially as it honors the values that Sarah, Shane and Josh hold so dear.”

The men have now served 750 days in prison, compared to the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979 which lasted 444 days.

An Iranian court is scheduled to issue a verdict within a week in the case of two American hikers detained in Iran, the hikers’ lawyer Sunday.

Attorney Masoud Shafiei said Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer are innocent of charges that they illegally entered Iran as spies. The lawyer reiterated at a hearing Sunday that the Americans have maintained their innocence throughout months of imprisonment.

If the court reaches a guilty verdict, Shafiei said the time the two have spent in Iranian custody is enough.

“I believe that even if the court finds my clients guilty, the two years that they have already served in prison would be considered as their sentence and they would be released,” he said. Sunday’s hearing occurred two years to the date of their arrest while hiking near the country’s border with Iraq.

Fattal and Bauer could be freed within a week of a court order, according to the lawyer. http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/31/american-hikers-in-iran-could-be-set-free-in-a-week-lawyer-says/

Kiran Chetry Leaves Struggling “American Morning”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/14/kiran-chetry-leaves-cnn-a_n_898078.html

Chetry’s exit also leaves “American Morning,” consistently the lowest-rated of the cable news morning shows, without any permanent hosts at all. Chetry’s former co-host John Roberts left the network in January. (Roberts famously had a testy on-air confrontation with Chetry in September.) Since his departure, a rotating cast of CNN regulars, led by Ali Velshi, has been filling in alongside Chetry. CNN has not yet announced who will become the permanent hosts of the perennially struggling show.

 

Kiran has been anchor there for five years.  But after the shakeup and Spitzer leaving, he should have never been there, she will be moving on.  But where?
