    Gov.’s Candid Moments Caught on Audiotape By Robert Salladay September 08, 2006 in print edition A-1 In the sanctuary of his Capitol office with an audio recorder rolling, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger describes Republican legislators as the “wild bunch” and, referring to a Latina lawmaker, casually says that “black blood” mixed with “Latino blood” equals “hot” – a fiery personality. The governor is heard on a six-minute recording, obtained by The Times, of a meeting with some members of his inner circle last spring. At the time, Schwarzenegger was struggling to persuade Republican lawmakers to embrace his plan to place billions...

The statement from Norway-based African Press International , however, simply heightened the doubts readers have expressed over whether the tape exists and whether the reported conversation ever happened. Among the newest opinions about API: "A wonderful lesson in Scamming 101." "Just what is happening?" "Stop this now. Produce the tapes or shut up." Either...

    The Campaign Spot at NRO ^ | 6 June 2008 | Jim Geraghty
    Sometimes, this rumor of this alleged tape of Michelle Obama denouncing “whitey” sounds like something out of a clichéd political thriller novel. Actually, it sounds exactly like something out of a clichéd political thriller novel. Specifically, Stephen Frey’s The Power Broker, published in 2006 by Ballantine Books. A major plot line of the novel is the presidential campaign of Democrat Jesse Wood, aiming to be the country’s first African American president — “Wood was handsome, smart, charismatic, and being mentioned increasingly often in the press as someone who could unite a twenty-first century America growing more, not less, racially and...

Barack Obama on Thursday batted down rumors circulating on the Internet and mentioned on some cable news shows of the existence of a video of his wife using a derogatory term for white people, and criticized a reporter for asking him about the rumor, which has not a shred of evidence to support it. “We have seen this before. There is dirt and lies that are circulated in e-mails and they pump them out long enough until finally you, a mainstream reporter, asks me about it,” Obama said to the McClatchy...

    In a case that proves that size really does matter, 3M has agreed to pay almost $700,000 to settle a Fresno County case that alleged the company sold undersized adhesive tapes. Fresno County prosecutors made their case stick by showing that 3M's Scotch and Tartan brand adhesive and packaging tapes were 6 percent narrower than their packaging said. "They knew what the width was, and they seemed to want to exaggerate it," said Alan Yengoyan, the Fresno County deputy district attorney who prosecuted the case...

    Scientists have designed an extremely sticky patterned adhesive, which is twice as sticky as flat tapes used for similar purposes. The new glue-free adhesive can also stick to dusty surfaces better, can be washed with soap and water, and can be reused multiple times. The researchers call the material “insect tape” because its adhesive properties come from a pattern of microstructures that are inspired by insect feet. The team, composed of evolutionary biomaterials researchers from the Max Planck Institute (MPI) in Stuttgart, Germany, and biologically inspired robotics researchers from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, US, analyzed more than 300 different...

    WASHINGTON - Rep. Jim McDermott said Friday he will ask the Supreme Court to decide whether he had a right to disclose contents of an illegally taped telephone call involving House Republican leaders a decade ago. A federal appeals court ruled in May that the Washington state Democrat should not have given reporters access to the tape-recorded telephone call of Republican leaders discussing the House ethics case against former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. McDermott's offense was especially egregious since he was a senior member of the House ethics committee, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of...

Spangler's suspension ended Monday and she has since returned to work. "I didn't think it was very funny,'' Guy said Tuesday. "It wasn't right and she (Spangler) made a huge mistake in judgment and she has paid for it.'' Guy said the...

He beat her, too, stealing $32. "There has to be a special rung of hell for him," said a police official familiar with the incidents, which occurred last weekend. The older woman suffered a fractured cheekbone that doctors at New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens could not repair because of her age. The 85-year-old suffered facial cuts and bruises.

With the Arab Sunnis now part of the democratic process in Iraq, the foreign Arab Jihadists fear that they will soon face the ire of the Iraqis rather than occasional operations launched by the U.S. forces. And if things come to that, the Jihadists know that the Iraqis will not be fighting them in accordance with the Marquis of Queensbury rules.

    HILL AIDE'S FUND TRIAL DEBUGGED By KENNETH LOVETT May 18, 2005 -- LOS ANGELES — In a courthouse shocker, Sen. Ted Kennedy's brother-in-law won't be asked about a conversation he secretly recorded for the FBI when he testifies today against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former chief fund-raiser, a prosecutor revealed yesterday. "The government does not intend to introduce the tape or elicit any testimony about that conversation," federal prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg told a judge before the trial of ex-Clinton fund-raiser David Rosen resumed yesterday after a four-day break. While Zeidenberg did not mention Kennedy's brother-in-law, Ray Reggie, by name, he...

    Teacher On Leave While Investigation Under Way --- AURORA, Colo. -- A teacher at Sidecreek Elementary School in Aurora was placed on leave Thursday after the mother of a fifth grader reported that the teacher taped their son's mouth shut. The incident allegedly occurred on Wednesday, but the Laura Solarin didn't learn about it until she called home to check on her son, Gabriel, after school and he told her what happened. "He gets the tape out of the desk and he starts wrapping it (around my head) in layers," said Gabriel, 11. "He went around (my head) maybe about...

Hillary Rodham Clinton's fund-raiser admitting that a Hollywood gala may have cost way more than her filings said......... Clinton fund-raiser David Rosen told Kennedy in-law Ray Reggie over dinner that a donor is claiming "he spent $2 million on an event that raised $1.4. . . . He may have," The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported.

    NEW YORK (AP) - Private conversations with George Bush secretly taped by an old friend before he was elected president foreshadow some of his political strategies and appear to reveal that he acknowledged using marijuana, The New York Times reported Saturday. The conversations were recorded by Doug Wead, a former aide to George W. Bush's father, beginning in 1998, when Bush was weighing a presidential bid, until just before the Republican National Convention in 2000, the Times said in a story posted on its Web site. The tapes show Bush crafting a strategy for navigating the tricky political waters between...

    US Democratic Senator John Kerry says a video message from Osama Bin Laden sealed his defeat in a presidential race dominated by the 9/11 attacks. Mr Kerry told NBC TV his opinion poll lead over President George W Bush fell away after the tape was broadcast. He said national security was the decisive issue in the November 2004 poll, won eventually by President Bush. Osama Bin Laden's video, shown days before the vote, urged Americans to back neither Mr Bush nor Mr Kerry. "Your security does not lie in the hands of Kerry, Bush or al-Qaeda. Your security is in...

    Florida judge duct tapes vociferous murderer's mouth Wed Jan 26, 3:41 PM ET Offbeat - AFP MIAMI, Jan 26 (AFP) - A Florida judge reportedly issued his own version of a gag order when he had officers duct tape the mouth of an angry murderer who had been hurling abuse at him. It took six prison officers clad in body armour and helmets to place the duct tape on the mouth of the defendant, who had earlier tried to bite bailiffs who intended to carry out the judge's orders, the Saint Petersburg Times reported. Convicted murderer Emory Carter was brought...
  • Breaking News: Colombian-supplied tape reveals up to 100 FARC guerrillas at event in Caracas

    A dialogue between two important members of the FARC (Colombian revolutionary Armed Forces), appears to be among the evidence submitted by the Colombian authorities to the Venezuelan Government according to Colombia’s Radio Caracol. Here is the translation of the only written report I have seen on the issue, which suggests that more than one hundred members of the FARC guerillas were in Caracas in early December for the II People’s Bolivarian Congress, financed and organized by the Chavez Government.. I had talked to two reporters who had mentioned this to me, but said they could not talk about it and...

    While soldiers at the front prosecute the war on terrorism in Fallujah, those of us in the comfort of our U.S. offices and homes would do well to take a second look at that pre-election Osama bin Laden tape. Its election value now gone and never realized, the tape remains important for what it says about counterterrorism strategy. Bin Laden was aiming at a broader audience than American voters. He was addressing the wider Muslim world. Those who shape U.S. foreign policy should note how several of the points he's making with Muslims give insight into how the U.S. must...
  • Osama bin Losin - His latest videotape is far from a show of strength.

    Flattering though it is to have the eyes of the world on America and our election, let's take a quick postvote moment to recall that America, despite its might, is not the global alpha and omega; it is neither the source of all the world's problems nor the solution. By the same token, while last week's videotape from that tall thin Swedophile purporting to be bin Laden was addressed to the American people in particular, the intended audience was clearly much larger. The world was invited to witness bin Laden swelling in self-importance to near-Michael Moore proportions as he came...

    I just caught a report on Fox concerning some further analisys and translation of OBL's tape just released. The news report suggested that OBL may have "guaranteed security" to individual states who support the election of Kerry - which may be the same of threatening states that support the re-election of Bush. If this is actually a correct interpretation, we as a nation must really come to grips with the threat we're really facing.

In the interests of authenticity the transcript, which appeared as subtitles at the foot of the screen, has been left unedited. Praise be to Allah who created the creation for his worship and commanded them to be just and permitted the wronged one to retaliate against the oppressor in kind. To proceed: Peace be upon he who follows the guidance: People of America this talk of mine is for you and concerns the ideal way to prevent another Manhattan, and deals with the...
