    Disgraced Utah teacher pleads guilty to sex with three teenage boys, avoids 11 other felony counts (VIDEO) BY JASON MOLINET A Utah teacher, whose string of sexual exploits with underage students were a "running joke" at Davis High School, pleaded guilty to sex with three boys in Davis County court. Brianne Altice, 35, accepted a plea deal to admit to three counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse on Wednesday in exchange for prosecutors dismissing 11 other counts, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. Altice could have been subject to four separate trials had she not agreed to the deal.
  • Obama Ho Chi Minh comment echoes KGB 'disinformation' Said communist mass-murderer 'inspired' by

    When President Obama said Ho Chi Minh – the North Vietnamese communist revolutionary who led the war effort against the U.S. that cost almost 60,000 American lives – was a fan of the U.S. Constitution and Thomas Jefferson, he was echoing what an influential new book calls one of the most deadly communist disinformation campaigns in American history. During a White House meeting with Vietnam’s President Truong Tan Sang last Thursday, Obama said he and Sang “discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson.”

    I got a call from Lieutenant Monique Patterson, the cop caught in the love triangle between former chief Warren Evans and Ralph Godbee two years ago. She said she had some text messages showing that she had sex with Godbee in exchange for a promotion. One text message from Godbee to Patterson said, "I want you, I think you, I breathe you, I taste you, I smell you, need I go on?" Another text message from Godbee to Patterson read, "I need a face to face so you can see that I say what I say because I'm in LOVE...

    Call it having sex for a good cause. A 20-year old college student in Brazil is auctioning off her virginity to the highest bidder in an attempt to raise money to build homes for poverty-stricken families in her hometown. The leggy Catarina Migliorini plans to give the money from the highest bidder – currently standing at $160,000 from a U.S. man named Jack Miller – to a non-governmental organization that will build modern homes in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. While she insists she is not a prostitute and that she is only doing this to make a...
  • Whitney Houston: Cocaine worsened heart problems, officials say (Drugs Kill)

    03/22/2012 5:47:14 PM PDT · by BAW · 39 replies
    Singer Whitney Houston's use of cocaine "exacerbated her heart condition" and played a role in her accidental drowning in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel suite, Los Angeles County Chief Coroner Craig Harvey said. The long-awaited autopsy results were released Thursday after weeks of intense speculation over how the 48-year-old pop star died. It marks another high-profile Hollywood death connected to drug use, coming less than three years after Michael Jackson died suddenly at his Holmby Hills mansion. Jackson’s death resulted from intoxication involving a powerful sedative, and his doctor was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

    Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system when she died -- this according to the L.A. County Coroner. The L.A. County Coroner has just released the singer's official cause of death -- accidental drowning ... but the report also notes heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors to Whitney's demise. A source connected to the investigation tells us it is "very possible" Whitney had a heart attack that caused her to lose consciousness and drown. The heart attack may have been triggered by hardening of the arteries as a result of cocaine use.

The restaurant opened Tuesday, and Lakisha Evans' plan seems to be working so far, KENS-TV in San Antonio reported. She has a straightforward business plan. "My burgers, they're cheap.

Landrieu's mind appears to be made up on the highly controversial healthcare overhaul, but some constituents in Baton Rouge say she needs to reconsider her position as the Senate gets closer to passing it. Their concerns range from government-funded abortions to constitutional rights violations and alleged cuts to Medicaid. Protestors held bold signs in hand. Some of them read, "Ho, ho Mary's gotta go" and "You are a sellout Landrieu." "When people tried to call Mary Landrieu, they...

Monti’s parents received the award for him. I hope they didn’t notice the first lady’s stunningly inappropriate dress, but that’s unlikely.

Many have assumed that Van Jones' committment to communism ended when the organization he helped to lead STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement) dissolved in 2002. Yet a 2004 treatise Reclaiming Revolution: History, Summation, and Lessons from the Work of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement written and endorsed by a majority of former STORM members makes it clear that most ex STORMers are still committed to the revolutionary movement; From page 49.

    The 11-month-old twin boys born to a Texas mom have a lot in common, but one thing they don't share is a father. That's because their mother, Mia Washington, cheated on her partner, James Harrison, according the the Daily Mail, and her fling resulted in a one-in-a-million double conception. The result is that one twin, Jordan, is James's son but the other one, Justin, was fathered by a man whose identity has not been released.

She said that "states rights" was used as a banner for segregation and Jim Crow laws, but that was not her immediate concern. Thompson said she opposed the resolution because it, and others like it, are feeding movements that challenge federal authorities to regulate guns, taxes or fund needed state programs such as children's health and unemployment insurance. "I don't want to see that used as a mechanism to block that assistance," Thompson said. Creighton said...

"The summer of 1966, on an Erie-Lackawanna train gang, laying track," Calabrese said, laughing. "Made $2.34 an hour." He's come a long way, and so has America's best-known toy train company. Calabrese is not only CEO but part-owner of Lionel. Among Calabrese's partners: singer-songwriter Neil...

    When kids hear Santa Claus bellow, "Ho, ho, ho," is their first thought prostitution? That concern has prompted an attempt to gag the traditional greeting, and many Santas are now fighting back. According to the Sydney Daily Telegraph, Santas across Australia are rebelling against attempts to change their saying to a more politically correct, "ha, ha, ha." It all started when the recruitment firm Westaff – which has offices both in the United States and Australia – told its Christmas trainees that the "ho, ho, ho" phrase could frighten children and possibly be derogatory to women.

Nevertheless, despite frequent complaints, school officials did nothing to intervene on Kandrac's behalf, arguing that the racially charged profanity was simply part of the students'...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    After-school special Dawn taught math by day, but after the final bell had rung, it was phys-ed all the way By JEAN-PHILIPPE PINEAULT -- Sun Media MONTREAL -- Frustrated by her meagre salary, a Montreal math teacher took advantage of school holidays to work -- as an escort.

  • Britney Spears: Pregnant Sex is 'Crazy Good'

    Britney Spears is opening up and wants to let her fans know everything about her pregnancy. And we mean everything. The pop-star Brit tells People magazine she's experiencing "horrible" morning sickness, battling "crazy" hormones and is craving pickles and ice cream as well as tuna fish with cheese. According to wire reports after Brit first got a look at a sonogram of her baby, Spears was speechless. "You can't really say anything. I was emotional. I think it's the best feeling in the world." Spears says that she hasn't yet tried to find out whether it's a boy or a...

    Your Momma Is the King of Pop Could Michael Jackson be both father and “mother”? By Joyce Milton For connoisseurs of the bizarre, Michael Jackson’s life story has been an embarrassment of riches. Jackson’s serial plastic surgeries, his habit of inviting young boys for sleepovers, and his more public parental malfunctions — as when he dangled his infant son over the railing of a sixth-floor hotel balcony — give us plenty to talk about. But the most arresting fact in Michael Jackson’s biography has occasioned surprisingly little comment: He is the first male celebrity to have a child who has...

    UNITED STATES: "AIDS Alert Draws Criticism" Newsday (02.13.05)::Kathleen Kerr On Saturday, New York health officials were criticized as having acted too hastily in alerting the public that an antiretroviral-naive city resident recently contracted HIV resistant to three ARV drug classes and quickly progressed to AIDS. Just one case "was not enough to warrant a public health alert," said Dr. Robert Gallo, a leading virologist at University of Maryland. "It's irresponsible and outrageous. We've already heard past claims about superviruses that all turn out to be nonsense. From the science, I would say the probability is very high that you won't see...

    Rap diva Lil' Kim was convicted Thursday of lying to a federal grand jury to protect friends involved in a shootout outside a radio station. Lil' Kim and her assistant were both convicted of perjury and conspiracy but acquitted of obstruction of justice. They each face up to 20 years in prison; sentencing was set for June 24.
