Armstrong Aide Talks of
Doping and Price Paid

New York Times, by Mary Pilon

Posted By:Toledo, 10/14/2012 5:59:24 PM

The job title is soigneur, an elegant sounding name for the person on a professional cycling team who is assigned some unglamorous work: massaging the muscles of the cyclists, laundering their clothes, booking their hotel rooms and preparing their food. Discretion and loyalty are also part of the job. Emma O’Reilly was a masseuse for Lance Armstrong.

I'm unclear why taxpayers' money is being used to destroy a retired athlete. Also, the woman being interviewed previously tried to sell her information in a book. The whole thing sounds sleezy to me. And what is any government agency doing going in for the kill against a private citizen who has not broken any American (or any other?) laws.

I have always questioned Armstrong junkies how he could battle cancer, other drugged riders and win every year?

No answer, but I was a hater.

I love justice being served!

You know what? I do NOT care. If they spent even 10% of the energy figuring out all the mysteries about Bobo, then he would not be POTUS. He would just be another failed lawyer looking for an easy seat in a corrupt state's legislature.

The reason he is being investigated is because of the Fraud he perpetrated on the World.

LIVE Strong bracelets to so much more marketing of this fraud, based on a crime and cheating. How many millions did this crook suck in on that LIVE strong b.s.!!!

Criminal activity. So he must be brought to task and to answer for his fraud.

Armstrong hasn't done half as much damage as obama has done to the world. That's what the NYT should be focusing on. To them Armstrong is bigger news than Benghazi. Pathetic.

He was tested time and time again and not one cycling organization (even the America hating French) were ever able to determine he was "doping," so how is it that years after he rode his last race there are maggots coming out of molded porridge to claim they have "proof" that he doped?
Is it possible that all the second place finishers (aka first losers) are banding together to get their awards through the courts, and in this case, through a faux organization which lusts for power and prestige?
Who is John Galt?

You could shoot up a hundred million people with the same stuff and none of them could turn the cranks like Armstrong.

Our Dear Reader has set the precedent that one only needs to observe some of the laws some of the time....so what's the problem ???

Is Lance a Republican ?

That would explain it.

Anyhow, I still think that everything about this is very fishy. I got a look at Tygart or whatever his name is from USADA, and he has sneaky eyes.

Russia´s oligarchs throw their weight
behind Kiev´s revolutionary rulers
Telegraph (UK), by Damien McElroy    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 3/10/2014 12:30:21 PM     Post Reply
Vladimir Putin’s gambit that Russia could change the course of the Ukraine revolution at gunpoint has failed a crucial test as the country’s billionaire oligarchs line up behind Kiev. Billionaire businessmen have accepted appointments from the pro-Western government in Kiev to act as regional governors in three Russia-leaning areas of the country. The fledgling government has also secured the important endorsement of the country’s richest man. Sergei Taruta, a sharp-suited industrialist who was last week named governor of the Russian-speaking Donbass region, bluntly accuses Mr Putin of sending provocateurs to create chaos on the streets to provide a pretext for Russia intervention.

Days before Vladimir Putin´s troops invaded Ukraine, National Security Adviser Susan Rice dismissed suggestions that Russia was about to pounce. "It´s in nobody´s interest," she said. Days later, President Obama declared the invasion to be illegal. "In 2014," he said, "we are well beyond the days when borders can be drawn over the heads of democratic leaders." Two things strike me about those quotes. First, they were right. From the viewpoint of the United States and its allies, invading Crimea made no sense, legally or strategically. Second, it didn´t matter: Putin plays by his own set of rules, and it´s dangerously

Paul Ryan to deliver critique
of Democrat’s pitch
Washington Post, by Robert Costa    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 3/6/2014 7:31:08 AM     Post Reply
"A full stomach — and an empty soul." That scathing synopsis of the Democrats´ pitch will be the crux of Paul Ryan´s message to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, when the Wisconsin Republican addresses activists. Ryan´s critique, even if delivered in his usual aw-shucks style, will probably stir talk of a possible presidential bid. Politicians looking only to chair the Ways and Means Committee rarely toss out such red meat. In the speech, which the Post obtained late Wednesday, Ryan also urges Republican to craft a conservative reform agenda, and talks up the legacy of his mentor, Jack Kemp, the late

As Obama Delays Obamacare Again,
Julie Boonstra Strikes Back

As Scott noted a little while ago, the Obama administration has again pushed back the deadline for individual and small group policies to comply with Obamacare’s requirements. They are doing this, obviously, because they are trying to put off the political fallout when millions of Americans lose the coverage they had, and find that coverage under Obamacare will be more expensive and/or more limited. Which gives a special resonance to the story of Julie Boonstra. Mrs. Boonstra, as you likely recall, is a Michigan resident who suffers from leukemia. She filmed a television ad for Americans For Prosperity in which she

Public discussion on Ukraine is all about confrontation. But do we know where we are going? In my life, I have seen four wars begun with great enthusiasm and public support, all of which we did not know how to end and from three of which we withdrew unilaterally. The test of policy is how it ends, not how it begins. Far too often the Ukrainian issue is posed as a showdown: whether Ukraine joins the East or the West. But if Ukraine is to survive and thrive, it must not be either side’s outpost against the other — it should

Putin Has Won on Ukraine: Is He
Savvy Enough to Seize Victory?

Vladimir Putin has won. Of the most likely outcomes in Ukraine, the one most perplexing to the United States and most damaging to President Obama´s legacy is the status quo. Putin could accept Obama´s diplomatic "off ramp:" shift his troops back to their Crimea bases, permit international monitors, and open relations with the interim government. He also could escalate, pushing troops into eastern Ukraine. But he has little incentive to either pull back or push forward, because the current state of affairs favors Putin in two ways. First, his troops are deployed throughout Crimea, a boon to his expansionist domestic politics and an

FORT WORTH, Texas — George P. Bush took the first step toward continuing his family´s political dynasty Tuesday, shaking off an under-funded primary challenger and securing the Republican nomination for the little-known but powerful post of Texas land commissioner. The 37-year-old Fort Worth attorney is the grandson of former President George H.W. Bush, nephew of former President and Texas Gov. George W. Bush, and son of ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is frequently mentioned as a possible GOP White House hopeful in 2016.

Ukraine crisis: Vladimir Putin is not
´unhinged´, White House says
Telegraph (UK), by Raf Sanchez    Original Article

President Barack Obama does not see Vladimir Putin as "unhinged" and believes the Russian leader can be coaxed into a deal to withdraw troops and end the Ukrainian crisis, the White House said last night. Hours after Mr Putin made a combative appearance in Moscow where he denied Russian troops were in Crimea but left open the possibility of war with Ukraine, the US said it still believed it was possible to reach a compromise with the Russian president. "We may be able to deescalate over the next several days and weeks, but it’s a serious situation and we’re spending a lot

Mike McQueary, the former Penn State quarterback and Nittany Lions assistant football coach who was a key prosecution witness in Jerry Sandusky’s criminal trial, confided to players that he was a victim of sexual abuse, according to a new ESPN The Magazine report. According to the report, it was during a meeting with PSU football receivers and tight ends on Nov. 7, 2011 — three days after prosecutors released a damning grand jury presentment outlining Sandusky’s sexual abuse of eight boys over a 15-year period — that the then-Nittany Lions receivers coach, McQueary, told the players that he too had been

Madoff’s Ties to JPMorgan Chase

It remains one of Wall Street’s most puzzling mysteries: What exactly did JPMorgan Chase bankers know about Bernard L. Madoff’s Ponzi scheme? A newly obtained government document explains why — five years after Mr. Madoff’s arrest spotlighted his ties to JPMorgan and later led the bank to reach a $2 billion settlement with federal authorities — the picture is still so clouded. The document, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, reveals a behind-the-scenes dispute that tested the limits of JPMorgan’s legal rights and raised alarming yet unsubstantiated accusations of perjury at the bank. More broadly, the document highlights the legal

Rebekah Brooks, former boss of Rupert Murdoch´s British newspaper arm, told a London court on Tuesday how the media mogul had persuaded her not to quit amid public revulsion over the hacking of a murdered schoolgirl´s phone. Brooks, on trial for phone-hacking offences, said a 2011 report that journalists on Murdoch´s News of the World tabloid had tapped the voicemail messages of 13-year-old Milly Dowler had caused a national scandal, with her at its centre, describing it at the time as a "sexist witch hunt".

In a post last week, I wrote that near the end of his autobiography, the great French journalist and intellectual Raymond Aron, in a chapter on the tenure of Secretary of State Kissinger, wrote, “For a half century, I have limited my freedom of criticism by asking the question; in his place, what would I do?” Aron’s overall point is that governing is harder than criticizing those attempting to govern and therefore ought to temper a bit one’s denunciations of those in power. This applies to those of us who are critics of President Obama. But this, too, needs to be said.

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

Sen.

The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can.

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

“I told you so.” Those have to be four of the most satisfying words in the English language. And Mitt Romney has earned the right to speak that short sentence, over and over again, whenever he chooses. Not that he would — it would be “unbecoming,” to use one of Romney’s old-fashioned words that in 2002 had the mandarins of Political Correctness harrumphing about his “sexism,” I believe the charge was that time. But these days, Mitt looks more and more prescient, and his critics ever more deluded. First of all, Russia has become “our number one geopolitical foe,” as he put it
