    For months, a small team of U.S. Navy investigators and federal prosecutors secretly devised options for a high-stakes international manhunt. Could the target be snatched from his home base in Asia and rendered to the United States? Or held captive aboard an American warship? Making the challenge even tougher was the fact that the man was a master of espionage. His moles had burrowed deep into the Navy hierarchy to leak him a stream of military secrets, thwarting previous efforts to bring him to justice. The target was not a terrorist, nor a spy for a foreign power, nor the...

    Shocking isn't it? Tent cities, refugee camps, they are all over America but in Seattle they are considered the norm. Today as of the writing of this article, one such tent city has been erected over Seattle city hall. It is illegally established and yet city hall not only tolerates it but is using taxpayer funds to promote it. They have but one demand. GIMME! GIMME! GIMME! The Tent city, dubbed Tent City 6 is run by two organizations of militant homeless bums called SHARE/WHEEL. Share stands for Seattle Housing and Resource effort.

    Knicks forward Derrick Williams was robbed of $750,000 in jewelry at his Tribeca apartment early Saturday — and he’s blaming two women he took home from a Meatpacking District club earlier in the evening. The women pillaged a Louis Vuitton jewelry case holding a small fortune in basketballer bling, law-enforcement sources said. “I don’t want to talk about it,” Williams said after the Knicks’ game at Madison Square Garden Saturday night. “It’s still up in the air.”

    Walmart's stock took a steep drop as the company announced that it was expecting lower profits. There are a number of problems Wal-mart has, such as its website and fulfillment not being quite as good as, but Wal-mart is primarily a brick and mortar store, not an internet company. The basic problem as I see it is that middle class people are afraid to shop there. If you look at reviews on Yelp one of the most common words used to describe Wal-mart is "ghetto". There is even a Yahoo question on this very topic: Why is every Walmart...

    Republican senators want to restrict products that may be purchased with Electronic Benefit Transfer cards used in state aid programs for the poor and disabled. Under Senate Bill 169, recipients would be banned from using the cards or cash drawn on the cards to purchase alcohol, tobacco, lottery tickets, firearms, or for adult entertainment, gambling, tattooing and body piercing. A similar bill passed the Senate last year, but was killed by the House which instead studied the issue. The result, House Bill 219, which restricts using the cards at locations such as smoke shops, tattoo parlors or marijuana dispensaries. State...

Just a few weeks ago, reports broke that Bill Clinton had flown at least 11 times on The Lolita Express a private plane owned by the mysterious financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. According to Virginia Roberts, who claims to have been one of Epsteins many teenaged sex slaves, Clinton also visited Epsteins private Caribbean retreat, known as Orgy Island. I remember asking Jeffrey, Whats Bill Clinton doing here? Roberts said in 2011. The former president, she added, was...

    The questionable accounting gimmick countries are using to claim economic progress. Calculating the economic output of hookers, gunrunners and drug dealers to boost GDP Karl Marx was wrong about virtually everything, but he was spot on when he said, history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. For the third time in six years, the European Union (EU) is on the verge of recession, a tragedy fueled by slow or non-existent growth, a strong possibility of continent-wide deflation, and debt burdens that remain onerous, if not catastrophic. Enter farce: the economic doyens of the EU have determined that Italy...

We lived below him, the former neighbor said, according to the website. It was outrageous. When it started, we thought it was a one-time thing. But it went on for months hours and hours of headbanging sex. The report in the liberal Gawker comes on the heels of The Daily Callers early Thursday article about how Menendez allegedly paid two women in the Dominican Republic for sex.

    SPITZER'S LEGACY: A $3.6M PROBE TABBy BRENDAN SCOTT April 13, 2008 -- Eliot Spitzer's political and sexual shenanigans are costing taxpayers upwards of $3.6 million. **SNIP** This month, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo launched his second look at the Dirty Tricks saga: a far-reaching probe into whether Spitzer ordered the State Police to gather intelligence on Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno. It should double the estimated $150,000 the attorney general's office spent on the initial report that sparked the Spitzer's troubles last year. Meanwhile, the State Investigation Commission has launched an investigation of the investigations - those by the attorney general,...

    Imagine a world with more sexually open, sensual, happily libidinous politicians. Wait, can you? I want a smart, slutty senator. I want an effective, confident, sex-positive congressman or woman who, if asked, speaks openly and blamelessly and even happily about her proclivities, with a wink and a smile and maybe a bit of cleavage before Labor Day. Married, single, somewhere in between? Doesn't matter. And, dare I say it, I want president who not only freely discusses and shrugs off his or her loves and sexual desires and even affairs, but dares to enjoy sex and thrives because of it...

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden Selling sex isnt illegal in Sweden, but buying it is a radical approach to prostitution that faced ridicule when it was introduced nine years ago. Now, while Americans are preoccupied with the downfall of New York Gov. Eliot L. Spitzer in a prostitution scandal, some countries are considering emulating the Swedish model, which prosecutes the client but views the prostitute as an exploited victim. Officials say the changed approach has reduced the demand for prostitutes and reshaped attitudes toward the sex trade. We dont have a problem with prostitutes. We have a problem with men who...

    NEW York's Governor spent up to $US80,000 ($85,000) on prostitutes who he asked to not wear a condom, it has been reported, as sordid details emerged in the sex scandal that threatens to hound him from office. Eliot Spitzer became embroiled in the scandal on Tuesday when it was reported that he was linked to a US probe into a prostitution ring. Mr Spitzer was caught on a listening device spending more than $4000 at the Emperor's Club call girl service. Anonymous officials involved with the case have now been reported by the Associated Press as saying that Mr Spitzer...
  • Probers check to see if Eliot Spitzer used tax dollars for trysts (Investigators say "Yes"!)

    As Gov. Spitzer held the state hostage to negotiate a sweet plea deal Tuesday night, probers looked to see if he used tax dollars for trysts with high-priced hookers totaling up to $80,000. A source familiar with the probe said IRS and FBI investigators found at least nine instances going back 18 months in which Spitzer made multiple cash transfers linked to Emperors Club VIP, a high-priced prostitution ring. Although the cash used to pay for a $4,300 prostitute named "Kristen" apparently came from Spitzer's account, he used taxpayer dollars to fly to and from his illicit rendezvous. Investigators are...

    The accusations that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer patronized a high-priced call girl tarnishes, if not undermines, the Democrats' attempt to portray the Republican Party as the party of corruption in this year's elections, even as it probably ends his own political career. The stunning confession yesterday by Mr. Spitzer, who had built a national law-enforcement reputation by prosecuting corrupt financiers on Wall Street, turns him into the most prominent political figure in the country to emerge in a recent string of personal and political scandals. Those scandals had seemed to catch more Republicans and led to steep losses for...

    THERE wasn't much sympathy on the streets of New York for Governor Eliot Spitzer, an anti-corruption crusader caught up in a sex scandal. The New York Times said Mr Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet a prostitute at a Washington hotel last month. Mr Spitzer neither confirmed nor denied the report, but apologised for violating his obligations to his family and his "sense of right and wrong". Elmira Shirkhin, 27, who works in sales, said she wasn't surprised. "It's what you would think politicians would do," she said, drawing a parallel to former president Bill Clinton's...

    Will Eliot Spitzer resign in time for this evening's network newscasts? I wouldn't if I were him. I'd wait until right afterwards, so that my smiling face wouldn't appear simultaneously on every TV set in the Western world. This is not New York provincialism. Spitzer is practically the most prominent and powerful Democrat in a huge state Hillary Clinton's state, Wall Street's state, the state of millions of Democrats. Spitzer's boner really sticks out, even in this day and age. He didn't just get some on the side. He violated the law, if the federal complaint and published reports...
