    Metro US NY ^ | 11/14/12
    Khawam not only tapped her military connections in her custody battle but also invoked broader contacts as she sought greater access to her son. In emails with her ex-husband, Khawam wrote that Senator Kerry asked about the son and whether he would be coming to Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2012. She also wrote that Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island invited the son to a summer clambake in the state, and that the son "would greatly appreciate attending this family clambake." Included in the court file is what appears to be a handwritten note from Whitehouse, writing, "I...

  • Weiner Clams Up, Has Hard Time at Press Conference

    Friday night Anthony Weiner, Democrat from New York City and Client Number Nine’s successor in the House, had a problem on Twitter. His account, @RepWeiner, had posted on it a rather inappropriate message. The Twitter post and the image on YFrog have since been deleted. To attempt to be delicate about it, the linked photo (posted under Weiner’s YFrog account) was of a man in in somewhat tight-fitting underwear, with just that area of his body visible. Big Government has the photo if you want to judge for yourself.
  • Group censured for using [SF mayor] Newsom's image in pro-Scientology booklet

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 10/12/07 | Cecilia M. Vega
    The smiling photo of Gavin Newsom and the city seal emblazoned on a booklet called "The Way to Happiness" sure make it seem as though San Francisco's mayor is heartily endorsing Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's writings. The booklet's back cover even shows a letter of support purportedly written by Newsom that echoes some of the mayor's favorite buzzwords: San Francisco is "a city of innovation" and is "the finest city in the world." But the giveaway is in the second paragraph, in which the fictitious letter from Newsom says San Francisco is home to "740,000 souls." He usually prefers...

    The Radio Equalizer | April 18, 2006 | Brian Maloney
    Has Air America Radio host Janeane Garofalo begun using her show to plug Scientology? According to one cult expert, that appears to be the case. Will our favorite quasi-star soon join the ranks of distinguished followers Tom Cruise and John Travolta in this Hollywood- favored, UFO-loving religious sect? Or was Friday's segment simply a colossal blunder, attributable to a startling lack of show prep? As far as we can tell, she hasn't previously promoted the teachings of Scientology on "Majority Report", which Garofalo co-hosts with Sam Seder. Whatever the case, Cult News.com's Rick Ross is clearly concerned about Garofalo's show....

    Has Janeane Garofalo officially turned against her listening audience? After a second show spent promoting Scientology, that certainly appears to be the case. Rather than take our word for it, look at what her fans have to say, here. Joining the ranks of Lyndon LaRouche sympathizer and Air America Radio co-founder Sheldon Drobny, with Garofalo, the liberal network is increasingly providing a sympathetic home for extremist sects and fringe beliefs. MSNBC is now taking notice, as well, with this from Jeannette Walls: The actress and talk-show host has done two segments on her Air America radio show “Majority Report,” heaping...

    It's been awhile since we covered anything Scientology related and, I don't know about you, but I desperately need a fix. Janeane Garofalo, star of such classics as The Truth About Cats, Dogs and Why I Shouldn't Be Acting, is stirring up a bit of controversy after publicly backing the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project on her Air America radio show, Majority Report. The program, which is based on teachings by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, helps those who worked in and around ground zero during the immediate aftermath of 9/11 heal their mind, body and spirit. While, on...

    Scientology Story Line Thrives Online as Comedy Central Looks the Other Way The now-infamous Scientology episode of "South Park" is out of the closet. Since Comedy Central pulled the repeat of the episode "Trapped in the Closet" from its schedule last month, the episode has nevertheless been available to viewers online, where fans posted it in droves on file-sharing sites. On YouTube.com alone, versions of "Closet" posted during the past two months have generated more than 700,000 views, according to data on the site last Thursday. An online petition on ChefGate.info garnered more than 5,000 signatures to protest the network's...

    PARIS (AFP) - The Church of Scientology provides for several kinds of wedding ceremony for its followers, but according to the most traditional the husband "may promise to provide her (his wife) with "a pan, a comb, perhaps a cat." US actor Tom Cruise and actress Katie Holmes will provide perhaps the most high-profile Scientologists' wedding to date this weekend. And according to unconfirmed reports in the Italian media, American Scientology leader David Miscavige will fly in from Los Angeles to preside over the event. According to the Scientologists' book "The Background, Ministry, Ceremonies and Sermons of the Scientology Religion",...

    According to a just-declassified State Department schedule, (Tom) Cruise visited then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage on June 13, 2003, just an hour after Armitage had met with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward. (It's speculated that Armitage outed Valerie Plame as a CIA spy at that meeting.) Cruise was accompanied by Tom Davis, head of the L.A. Celebrity Center for Scientology, and Kurt Weiland, Scientology's veep of communications. What was discussed? "Only Armitage can answer that question, and he's no longer here," a State Department spokesman told us. E-mails to Armitage and Cruise's rep weren't answered, nor was a call...

    CLEARWATER - Matt Feshbach believes he has super powers. He senses danger faster than most people. He appreciates beauty more deeply than he used to. He says he outperforms his peers in the money management industry. He heightened his powers of perception in 1995 when he went to Los Angeles and became the first and so far only "public" Scientologist to take a highly classified Scientology program called Super Power. Where in L.A. did he do this? "Just in Los Angeles," is all Feshbach will say. Super Power is that secret. Under wraps for decades, Super Power now is being...
