  • New York Attorney General sues Donald Trump for $40M, claiming 'Trump University' fraud

    New York's attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony "Trump University" that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships. Trump shot back that the Democrat's lawsuit is false and politically motivated. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says many of the 5,000 students who paid up to $35,000 thought they would at least meet Trump but instead all they got was their picture taken in front of a life-size picture of "The Apprentice" TV star. "Trump...

    Oh joy. We received our 2012 "American Community Survey" this week, the gazillion page long form that government experts assure me will take only 38 minutes to fill out. Below are the samples of the extremely obnoxious questions on the current form (courtesy of RyanUS at DemocratUnderground who complained about this government intrusion in his life!). I'm giving them the basics and expect to be harrassed the next six weeks until they finally go away.

    In March 2005 at their summit meeting in Waco, Tex., President Bush, President Fox and Prime Minister Martin issued a joint statement announced the creation of the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” (SPP). The creation of this new agreement was never submitted to Congress for debate and decision. Instead, the U.S. Department of Commerce merely created a new division under the same title to implement working groups to advance a North American Union working agenda in a wide range of areas, including: manufactured goods, movement of goods, energy, environment, e-commerce, financial services, business facilitation, food and agriculture, transportation,...

    Defense Secretary Donald Rumfeld's confrontation with hecklers was big news. But the media didn't tell us that the main heckler, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, has contributed articles to publications associated with political extremist Lyndon LaRouche, who served time in prison on financial fraud charges and once called for bringing into being "a new Marxist International throughout the capitalist sector." McGovern previously told AIM that he knows nothing about LaRouche but believes his researchers "do some fairly good work." It looks like the major media don't know much about LaRouche or McGovern. If McGovern is incapable of knowing the facts...

    The New York Sun ^ | April 7, 2006 | BRUCE CHILTON
    The National Geographic Society released the manuscript of what is called "The Gospel of Judas" yesterday. By National Geographic's own account, a team first assembled by the Maecenas Foundation has been working on the text since 2001. As a result of press releases tied to publication of the text, widespread coverage has repeated the claim that this is an authentic and unique representation of the historical relationship between Jesus and Judas, and that Jesus encouraged Judas to betray him. Despite the careful work by scholars that has gone into a document of obvious interest, I have to express disappointment when...

    The death of Pope John Paul II and the election of Pope Benedict XVI have drawn great attention to the papacy in recent months. Such intense interest is remarkable. Much of it relates to the personality and accomplishments of John Paul II. He was a man of great courage and contributed significantly to the collapse of communism in eastern Europe. Part of the interest also results from the powerful images that Rome can offer television cameras. Some of the greatest art and architecture of western civilization serve as a backdrop for elaborate rituals performed by gloriously clad clerics. Part of...

    Slate ^ | Dec. 22, 2005 | The Rev. Chloe Breyer
    Can Jesus be the son of God and Joseph? At Christmas, Christians celebrate the birth of God's only son. Some believers, however, wonder if Jesus Christ is God's son only. The ancient "illegitimacy tradition" and its modern proponents propose that Jesus may have had a human father. That idea upsets one of the central mysteries of the Christian faith—the virgin conception. But it's entirely in keeping with more essential tenets: Jesus' role as the Messiah, and God's love for the poor and downtrodden. What's more, the illegitimacy tradition responds to many strange utterances about Jesus' birth in the Scriptures themselves....

    Republicans Ready for a Fight It has no been almost one year since the Republican Party received a huge mandate in the 2004 elections. The results: NOTHING. Not entirely nothing as some issues have progressed, but in moral and social issues we have gotten nowhere. By now you are probably either asking your self why or answering that question in you head. For those of you that might be a little bit behind, or are just preoccupied, here is the answer: Republicans in Congress and the White House are playing political games. With the exception of nominating Judge Roberts, President...

The veteran of Platoon , Saving Private Ryan, and Band of Brothers began his military-movie-consulting career after racking up three Purple Hearts in the Marines in Vietnam. At age 60, he tweaks scripts, whips actors into shape, directs, and acts; he plays himself on HBO's Entourage, training the main character to be "Aquaman." Not only does he appear as a general in The Great Raid, starring Benjamin Bratt and based on the World War II mission to save 500 American...

    N.O. politico testifies expense was no secret LOS ANGELES -- New Orleans political operative Ray Reggie took the stand Thursday in the trial of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton's former finance director to describe how expenses such as lavish party favors -- director's chairs for every guest -- and efforts to round up private jets for celebrity performers helped drive the costs of a Hollywood gala into the stratosphere. And Clinton's finance director, David Rosen, knew it, Reggie testified on the sixth day of Rosen's trial. Rosen, 40, is charged with making false statements to the Federal Election Commission about the...

    NEW YORK (AP) - With flowing fabric the color of a sunrise, "The Gates" - a massive public art installation - was unfurled Saturday for the start of a 16-day stay transforming miles of footpaths in Central Park. The project opened with Mayor Michael Bloomberg dropping the first piece of saffron-colored fabric to the cheers of a huge crowd. He was joined by exhibit creators Christo and Jeanne-Claude. The crowd counted down the seconds before Bloomberg, a longtime backer of the project, opened the exhibition at 8:30 a.m. The weather was windy and cold as the first fabric dropped from...

AP Photo Reuters Slideshow: Bush Inauguration Bush spoke of freedom, of the goal to end tyranny and urged the nation to find unity. Echeverria, a 62-year-old Air Force veteran and Republican, drank his whiskey from a tall glass, then pumped his fist in the air. He liked how concise Bush was and that he didn't make empty promises. "All right, Bush!" he said to the television above the bar in Tampa. Two barstools away, Democrat...

Ann Coulter’s latest (weekly) screed against the New York Times reaches two conclusions about the Jayson Blair debacle. The first is that Blair was hired and promoted – despite his profound professional faults – simply because he is black. Coulter’s second conclusion is that the New York Times was "cruel" for enabling his dysfunctional behavior. If so, then we can also conclude that Human Events hired and promoted Ann Coulter – despite...
