  • John Bel Edwards Won’t Say He’ll Fight Syrian Refugee Placement #LAGov

    All weekend long and well throughout the day today, the topic of conversation has been on the attacks in Paris. Here in Louisiana, perhaps more than anywhere else, there is a strong connection with the French: It’s in our culture, it’s the basis of a (rapidly dying) local language, and it is where we as a state came from. The Paris attacks have now given way to a broader U.S. conversation about the acceptance of Syrian refugees, and several states, including Louisiana, have said “No, we’re not cooperating on this.” But, do you know who is okay with accepting Syrian...

    The Hill ^ | 4/6/15 | David McCabe
    Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden got into a heated exchange with comedian and late night host John Oliver over the ramifications of his wide-ranging leaks about U.S. surveillance apparatus during an interview that aired Sunday night. How many of those documents have you actually read? Oliver asked Snowden, during an interview on his show, "Last Week Tonight." Ive evaluated all of the documents that are in the archive, Snowden replied. Youve read every single one? Oliver asked. Well, I do understand what Ive turned over," Snowden said. "Theres a difference between understanding whats in the documents and reading...
  • Kerry says Snowden engaging in Kerry-Like Betrayal - [Vietnam War] - Video Montage

    05/29/2014 1:13:24 PM PDT · by Frankusa · 5 replies
    During a round of morning interviews with several of the major television networks on Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry accused NSA [National Security Agency] leaker Edward Snowden of engaging in the same kind of betrayal and traitorous activities that Kerry once participated in. When Kerry returned from the Vietnam War in the early 70's, he accused his fellow American soldiers of committing war crimes. Kerry's accusations provoked the ire of countless Vietnam War vets who said that not only was Kerry falsely maligning them, but that he was guilty of betrayal and that he was harming American POW's in...

    Catholic World News reports: "A former chancellor of the Manchester, New Hampshire diocese, who last year resigned from his post as president of the St. Luke Institute, has been sentenced to a 4-year prison term after pleading guilty to theft charges.

    In second part of Glenn Greenwald interview, NSA whistleblower insists he is a patriot who regards the US as fundamentally good. Edward Snowden predicted more than a month ago while still in hiding in Hong Kong that the US government would seek to demonise him, telling the Guardian that he would be accused of aiding Americas enemies.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 6-9-2013 | William A. Jacobson
    It seems that nothing is ever as it seems. It may be that Edward Snowden is what he seems to be an Obama-supporter who, despite barely gaining a GED, managed to work his way into sensitive technical positions at the CIA, NSA and private contractors, and then became disillusioned that abuse of individual privacy he witnessed under the Bush administration was not cured and if anything worsened under Obama, and who, despite four years of Obama-rule in which to leak embarrassing documents, waited until late May 2013 in which to take and then dump on Glenn Greenwald a treasure...

    Edward Snowden was interviewed over several days in Hong Kong by Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill. Q: Why did you decide to become a whistleblower? A: "The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife's phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards.

    Afternoons were Berties favourite time for adultery. While husbands were out at work, the Prince sallied forth to pay calls on their wives, lingering for up to 90 minutes. Servants were instructed that no one else should be admitted into the drawing room. Then Bertie would make an abrupt lunge, followed by a kiss smelling of tobacco and a hasty grope. With his favourites, he patiently negotiated the barriers of crinolines and stays to achieve his ultimate desire. Few turned him down: within his social set, it was almost impossible for a woman to resist advances from the Prince of...

    Perhaps no Prince of Wales in history has been less trusted or more spied upon than the boy everyone knew as Bertie. When he attended a military summer camp, at age 19, the future King Edward VII was surrounded by minders: two stern Grenadier officers, a colonel and a general. He even had to share a generals quarters. Happily, however, they had not thought to lock Berties bedroom window. So, one night, the heir to the throne wriggled out, made a beeline for the camp prostitute one Nellie Clifden and triumphantly lost his virginity.
  • Joe Sobran, R.I.P. [Joseph Sobran, 1946 - 2010]

    Our former NR colleague, Joe Sobran, passed away today after a long battle with a variety of ailments. He was relatively young, just 64, and while physically beaten at the end, he also departed spiritually triumphant. Surely, in short order, there will be ample reflection much of it critical on the hyper-talented, hyper-controversial writer. There will be a recounting of his history at NR, the break, the following years, and Joes soured relationship with WFB (happily, they rekindled their friendship before Bill passed away). Good, lets discuss all that, and more. But later. Right now, let us,...

    Among the bordellos of Victorian Paris, Le Chabanais was the most exquisite, and the most lavish. Over the years this maison de tolerance the word brothel was considered too tawdry saw visitors as illustrious as Humphrey Bogart, Mae West and Cary Grant. But in the 1880s, one of its principal clients was the future King Edward VII, then known to everyone as Bertie, the playboy Prince of Wales. Each of the establishments 30 rooms had its own theme, such as Moorish, Louis XIV and ancient Roman but Berties favourite was the Hindu room.

    The royal princes plodded slowly and sadly behind the coffin of their father, George V, as it was hauled through the streets of London to lie in state in Westminster Hall. In the silent crowd, Bloomsbury artist Vanessa Bell looked on the gun carriage draped with the royal standard and surmounted by the Imperial Crown and thought it 'unexpectedly lovely'. But then she caught sight of the new King, Edward VIII. What struck her was not just that he looked utterly miserable and very small, but that he was 'disreputable, patchy and debauched'. She was not impressed.

    MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian police were embarrassed Thursday after having to discipline an officer assigned to guard Prince Edward for taking unauthorized photographs of the British visitor's hotel suite. Police said an officer assigned to a security detail for dignitaries at the Commonwealth Games had been seen during a routine security sweep taking photographs of the suite the prince will occupy until Monday. The photographs were confiscated and destroyed. "The member involved was stood down from Games duties and returned to normal duties," a police spokesman said. Victoria state police commissioner Christine Nixon said another snap-happy officer had also been...

Grandson Wants Russian Authorities to Investigate Stalins Death Joseph Stalins great-grandson has appealed to the Russian authorities with a request to investigate the circumstances of his great-grandfathers death, news agencies reported Thursday. When Stalin was disposed of, Khrushchev, who imagined himself to be a statesman, was able to come to power. His so called activities were nothing but a betrayal of the interests of the state that he headed, Jacob Jugashvili said in a statement. The betrayal committed in the Kremlin should be judged in the Kremlin, too, he...

    Radar pinpoints tomb of King Edward the Confessor By Jonathan Petre, Religion Correspondent (Filed: 02/12/2005) The ancient tomb of Edward the Confessor, one of the most revered of British saints, has been discovered under Westminster Abbey 1,000 years after his birth. The original burial chamber of the Anglo-Saxon king, who died in 1066, months before the invasion of William the Conqueror, was revealed by archaeologists using the latest radar technology. The existence of a number of royal tombs dating back to the 13th and 14th century was also discovered beneath the abbey, the venue for nearly all coronations since 1066....

Christian, a sixteen month old baby, was allegedly murdered last August by Gregory Class, the boyfriend of Christians mother Tammy Souliere of Warner Robins. Class has been charged with three counts of murder and aggravated battery stemming from an incident on August 7, 2004. Despite allegations that Class has previously abused...
