A onetime rising star in national labor circles who headed California´s biggest union local was convicted Monday on federal charges that he stole tens of thousands of dollars from his low-income members. Tyrone Freeman, who represented about 190,000 homecare workers as a leader of the Service Employees International Union, was found guilty on 14 counts after a 10-day trial in Los Angeles. Jurors deliberated two and a half days before returning their verdict. The trial followed a nearly four-year investigation triggered by a series of Times reports on Freeman´s financial practices.

"The verdict was cheered by Local 6434 members such as Raquel Toribio, 69, a Monterey County homecare worker paid to look after her son, who has Down syndrome"

Raquel is being paid as a homecare worker to look after her son? Sounds like another scam. When the hell are the taxpayers finally going to run out of money?

China media: National Day reflection

Media in China are celebrating the nation´s economic progress on National Day, but also highlight the need for more social reforms. On the 64th founding anniversary of the People´s Republic of China, The Beijing News praises the country´s economic might, but adds that the government needs to do more to protect citizens´ rights. "An imperfect legal system can hardly protect citizens´ private property, which has led to a serious erosion of society´s sense of trust and has also exacerbated public anxiety about fairness and impartiality," it says. The paper adds that China is "increasingly facing serious

This amazing CNN news story by reporter Zain Asher should be required viewing for the GOP House caucus. It’s about efforts to educated uninsured families in New Jersey about Obamacare, and it illustrates how little the Affordable Care Act’s biggest beneficiaries know about the new program. To put it another way, folks aren’t exactly jumping up and down at the prospect of access to health care. Watch Jose Menendez, as he asks, ”I have a question. Who created this affordable health care plan that you’re speaking about?” Asher tells him Congress passed the measure. Menendez says,

Yesterday, 25 Senate Republicans stood shoulder to shoulder with their Democrat counterparts and helped the Continuing Budget Resolution pass cloture. Despite Ted Cruz’s efforts, and his warning that “a vote for cloture was a vote for Obamacare,” Lindsey Graham was eager to join hands and sing Cumbaya with his alleged Dem opponents. With the help of people like Graham, the CR easily passed cloture, allowing Harry Reid to introduce an amendment restoring funding for Obamacare. The amendment passed with a simple 51 vote majority. This time, since his vote was now a meaningless gesture,

Two English Defence League leaders have been released on police bail after they were arrested by police in Central London. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan police said: "Two men aged 30 and 44 have been released on bail to a date in mid- August pending further enquiries." Tommy Robinson had shouted, "You are enforcing Sharia law", at officers who held him on suspicion of obstructing police as he tried to enter the London borough of Tower Hamlets. EDL member Kevin Carroll was also arrested. The EDL had previously announced plans to walk through part of the capital

Piers Morgan: Rush Limbaugh is
‘Too Old and Too Boring’
Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard    Original Article
Posted By: Spinmaster- 6/27/2013 1:20:21 AM     Post Reply
Piers Morgan normally gets around 500,000 people to watch his pathetic show on CNN. Despite this, the man few Americans actually know by name had the nerve to say Wednesday that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is “too old and too boring” to be a regular on CNN’s revival of Crossfire. After playing a clip from a 1990 Crossfire featuring Limbaugh, Morgan said: From 1990 that´s Crossfire with a younger Rush Limbaugh making his case as a guest. Tonight the great news is that he’s not back on Crossfire. He´s too old and too boring.

Is Rush Limbaugh still relevant?
CNN, by Dean Obeidallah    Original Article
Posted By: SpinMaster- 5/14/2013 1:25:13 PM     Post Reply
New York -- Is Rush Limbaugh becoming a relic, a human version of "Mad Men," except without the style or cool clothes? Has Limbaugh become as dated as Jazzercise or "Macarena?" All you need to do is look at the bottom line to see that Limbaugh is in trouble. Limbaugh once raked in the big bucks for his radio syndicator, Cumulus. But last week, Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey made it clear those days are over. Dickey reported that Cumulus had lost millions of dollars in ad sales because many advertisers no longer want to be associated with Limbaugh.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
