  • Military officer calls for nationwide gun-grab

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 4 December, 2013 | David Codrea
    A firestorm has been started on Esquire’s The Politics Blog with a Tuesday opinion piece by Lt. Col. Robert Bateman titled “It’s time to talk about guns and the Supreme Court.” He not only takes SCOTUS and Justice Antonin Scalia to task for their Heller decision interpretation of the Second Amendment, but goes on to propose citizen disarmament edicts that dispense with false assurances given by some in the gun ban camp that nobody wants to take our guns away. Bateman does, big time, and makes no bones about it. In a way, he’s done us a service by giving...

    Al Qaeda's Inspire magazine confused with Esquire at Guantanamo hearing By Jane Sutton GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba | Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:41pm EDT (Reuters) - An Arabic-English interpreter confused the al Qaeda magazine Inspire with the gentlemen's magazine Esquire during a pretrial hearing in the Guantanamo war crimes tribunal on Friday. The mix-up came in a hearing for five prisoners who could face execution if convicted of launching the September 11, 2001, hijacked plane attacks that killed 2,976 people and propelled the United States into a global war against al Qaeda. A week-long hearing has focused on...

    Esquire ^ | May 23, 2013 | Tom Junod
    Sure, we as a nation have always killed people. A lot of people. But no president has ever waged war by killing enemies one by one, targeting them individually for execution, wherever they are. The Obama administration has taken pains to tell us, over and over again, that they are careful, scrupulous of our laws, and determined to avoid the loss of collateral, innocent lives. They're careful because when it comes to waging war on individuals, the distinction between war and murder becomes a fine one. Especially when, on occasion, the individuals we target are Americans and when, in one...

Though polls show the race a true toss-up, some Democrats are attacking not just Republicans, but smearing the entire state as well.

    The commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command denies allegations made in an Esquire feature article that the SEAL team member who claims he first shot Osama bin Laden was left in the dark about what benefits were available to him after he left the service. "This former SEAL made a deliberate and informed decision to leave the Navy several years short of retirement status," Rear Adm. Sean Pybus, commander of Naval Special Warfare Command, wrote in a statement. "Months ahead of his separation, he was counseled on status and benefits, and provided with options to continue his career until...

    In the August issue, Tom Junod examines an entirely new application of power on the part of the president — the targeted killing of individuals deemed to be threats to the country. So far, thousands have been killed, most prominent among them Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki. The decisions to target are made and the lethal missions are carried out without any public accountability, even when those targeted are Americans and even when, on one occasion, one of those Americans was a teenager. Over the course of this week, Junod considers five of the larger implications of his story...

    In a new interview with Jake Tapper of ABC News, Gingrich said human life begins at implantation rather than conception, which science has established as the starting point for human life. Tapper asked him, “Abortion is a big issue here in Iowa among conservative Republican voters and Rick Santorum has said you are inconsistent. The big argument here is that you have supported in the past embryonic stem cell research and you made a comment about how these fertilized eggs, these embryos are not yet “pre-human” because they have not been implanted.

The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President,” have filed suit against Hearst, Esquire magazine and writer Mark Warren over a satirical article that they say defamed them and damaged their business interests. They’re seeking compensatory damages of $100 million and punitive damages of $20 million, plus legal costs. [Update: As a commenter points out, that's only for one of the five counts; the full amount sought totals more than $285 million.]

The Esquire story, written by Mark Warren, spread across the Internet moments after being posted on the magazine’s website Wednesday morning. Esquire has said it was a joke and Warren told TheDC he has no regrets about posting it. “He is an execrable piece of ****,” Warren said of Corsi.

    Tom Junod’s eulogy for Barack Obama’s mystique in Esquire indulges in overwrought excuse-seeking and ultimately misses the obvious conclusion, but it’s notable for recognition of one central fact: Obama as President has been the Incredible Shrinking Man, and in more than one way. Not only does Obama seem incapable of offering soaring rhetoric that engages and inspires millions now –as Junod puts it, he no longer seems born to fill stadiums like a rock star — but the rhetoric Obama does offer makes it seem that Obama can’t even engage himself. As the Anointed Obama vanishes, all that’s left is...

    Esquire Magazine discovered a secret technique used in the pants making industry called "vanity sizing," a merchandizing trick of sizes that make you feel good and want to buy the clothes. Eyewitness News bought four pairs of labeled 36-inch waist pants from different retailers. Old Navy's pants measured 39 inches and H&M at 39.5 inches, while Banana Republic and The Gap both came in at 40 inches. Esquire Magazine's own test measured H&M's size 36-inch dress pants as 37 inches, Calvin Klein's Dylan pant as 38.5 inches, and The Gap as 39 inches. The worst was Old Navy, coming in...

    Newt Gingrich is a phoenix. He's risen again and again from political ashes and appears to be ascendant once more. Rumored to be running for president in 2012, Gingrich is an icon in the Republican Party, an eminence grise at a time of lost leadership. His fall from grace in the late 1990s seems a blip, rather than a political ending. Thus the cover story in Esquire Magazine, September issue, written by John H. Richardson. If anyone knows something about Newt Gingrich, it is his former wife, Marianne, and Richardson scored an interview with her. She is someone with a...

    To see why Tuesday's "retirement" of Navy Adm. William "Fox" Fallon as head of U.S. Central Command is good news, all you have to do is look at the Esquire profile that brought about his downfall. Its author, Thomas P.M. Barnett, a former professor at the Naval War College, presents a fawning portrait of the admiral -- a service he previously performed for Donald Rumsfeld. But evidence of Fallon's supposed "strategic brilliance" is notably lacking. For example, Barnett notes Fallon's attempt to banish the phrase "the Long War" (created by his predecessor) because it "signaled a long haul that Fallon...

Richardson, 51, was arrested in March 2004 with two animal activists associated with Earth First. At that time, Sabino Canyon was closed while authorities tried to capture several mountain lions. The activists, Rodney Coronado, 39, and Matt Crozier, 33, were each convicted of one...

In a recent online poll conducted by Esquire magazine, 11,000 women in 15 countries were asked to rate Bush's sex appeal on a scale of one to 10, and America's commander-in-chief failed to register much more than a two. Women in Australia, Germany and the Netherlands were the harshest judges of George W.'s sexual allure, giving him an average rating of...

Yesterday, 79-year-old Buckley was crowing over Esquire magazine's abjectly apologetic "Open Letter" in the February issue, saying the mag "greatly regrets" including an old Vidal polemic, "A Distasteful Encounter With William F. Buckley Jr.," in a recent anthology. When the Vidal essay was originally printed in 1969 - after the two debaters exchanged televised insults during the raucous 1968 Democratic convention - Buckley successfully sued the magazine for...

    Journalist Ron Suskind is one-stop shopping for Bush administration castaways. But what if John DiIulio -- Suskind gave him a platform in Esquire magazine in 2002 to call the administration "the reign of the Mayberry Machiavellis" -- and Paul O'Neill had been shopping a conservative critique of Bush? Would Suskind have cracked open his notebook? Not likely. Few events excite liberal journalists more than the inevitable defection of an "insider" from a Republican administration, provided that the defector is a liberal who is telling the media what it wants to hear. What interests the Suskinds are not conservative defectors but...

Not so, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Monday, dismissing comments from John J.

I saw a picture of our president—my president—and my feelings about him were instantly rekindled. The picture was taken after his speech to the graduating seniors at the Air Force Academy. He was wearing a dark suit, a light-blue tie, and a white shirt. His unsmiling visage was grim and purposeful, in pointed contrast to the face of the elaborately uniformed cadet standing next to him, which was lit up with a cocky...

    <p>WHILE men the world over drooled over the latest cover of Esquire, which featured Britney Spears mimicking a famed 1966 Angie Dickinson photo, Spears herself was livid. Sources say the singer - who appears in less and less clothing with each successive magazine cover - was "humiliated" by her bottom-baring pose, which had her standing sideways in a skin-tight sweater and white stilettos. The photo was shot by James White for Esquire's "70 Years of Women We Love" issue. "Britney thinks the pictures are too naked and is really angry at Esquire," a magazine insider said. "But really, is she out of her mind? I mean, her brother was at the shoot. Exploited? Is she crazy? Look at the photos she has done for everyone else. The Rolling Stone cover was practically naked, too - but she wasn't exploited by them?" Relations between Esquire and Spears have been frosty ever since editor David Granger thought he had an exclusive on the pop tart - and then she posed for other magazines without telling him. A rep for Spears declined comment.</p>

David Granger, editor in chief of the 68-year-old men's magazine, said Esquire reversed its decision after news of Blair's...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Disgraced journalist Jayson Blair, who resigned from The New York Times over his fraudulent reporting, has been commissioned to write a magazine review of a film about another famed media fraud. Blair has been commissioned by Esquire to write a movie review of "Shattered Glass," a film about Stephen Glass, who admittedly made up sources and whole stories while a staff writer at The New Republic, the magazine confirmed on Friday. "We thought it was a clever way to do a movie review, to have the most infamous fabricator review another infamous fabricator," said Esquire editor-in-chief...

    The disgraced former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair will review a movie profiling another journalist who was exposed as a serial fabricator for men's magazine Esquire, a spokesman for the magazine said. AFP/NYT-HO/File Photo Blair has been commissioned to write an 800-word review of "Shattered Glass," the story of Stephen Glass, a one-time staff writer for the New Republic and freelancer for titles such as Rolling Stone, Harper's and George. By the mid-90s, Glass' articles had turned him into one of the most sought-after young journalists in Washington, but he left the current events and policy magazine under a...

    Esquire Magazine's August edition features some revealing photographs of the 2004 Democratic Presidential contenders in what they consdier their natural elements, but the good editors at the magazine were smart enough to know that it would take more sizzle to attract readers.That may explain why they slapped a picture of actress Jennifer Lopez --clad in a bikini--on the cover.J-Lo's pinup shot leads readers into the features about the candidates, in which Sen. John Kerry is photographed in his Washington townhouse, talking on the phone while his wife Teresa, sits perched on his wingback chair with a cup of tea in...

    The flap over former Bush White House adviser John DiIulio's cutting criticisms of his former colleagues, followed by his earnest, near-groveling apology — all stemming from a still-to-be-published article in the January issue of Esquire magazine — has obscured another, perhaps more newsworthy aspect of the story.In the piece, a preview of which is available on Esquire's website, DiIulio ridicules the "Mayberry Machiavellis" in the White House, whom he defined, in a letter to the writer Ron Suskind, as the "staff, senior and junior, who consistently talked and acted as if the height of political sophistication consisted in reducing...

    Johnny Carson kept much of America laughing for 30 years. As the host of The Tonight Show, he ruled the late night airwaves with a rapier wit and a guest list that wouldn’t stop. Carson gracefully retired about a decade ago, and has stayed pretty much out of the public eye. That ends this week, as Esquire magazine publishes an extended interview with him. On Monday the Drudge Report carried an exclusive about the article. In it, Carson criticizes Fox Broadcasting for being excessively patriotic in its coverage of this year’s Super Bowl. Johnny is quoted: "It’s nice to live...
