At this hour at least 100 of Hollywood’s elite have signed a petition of Grievance against the arrest of Hollywood director, Roman Polanski, in the matter of his flee from justice after conviction of Child Rape following Polanski entering of his  plea of guilty.

Polanski swore under oath during his plea hearing that he knew full well his victim was a girl of 13 years of age at the time of his crime of child rape.

This is not only a crime to which Polanski plead guilty, it is a crime for which Polanski has voiced NO Repentance and instead, has Justified his Pedophilia Crime in a statement during an interview originally appearing in Tatler and is collected in Amis’s book, Visiting Mrs Nabokov.

Here’s a section of the first quote from from Polanski.

“If I had killed somebody, it wouldn’t have had so much appeal to the press, you see?

But… fu*king, you see, and the young girls. Judges want to fu*k young girls. Juries want to fu*k young girls.

Everyone wants to fu*k young girls!”

-Roman Polanski

And though not a signer yet of the below petition, Whoopie Goldberg says it is not “rape-rape” yesterday on The View. The Hollywood Petition for Roman Polanski

We have learned the astonishing news of Roman Polanski’s arrest by the Swiss police on September 26th, upon arrival in Zurich (Switzerland) while on his way to a film festival where he was due to receive an award for his career in filmmaking. His arrest follows an American arrest warrant dating from 1978 against the filmmaker, in a case of morals. Filmmakers in France, in Europe, in the United States and around the world are dismayed by this decision. It seems inadmissible to them that an international cultural event, paying homage to one of the greatest contemporary filmmakers, is used by the police to apprehend him. By their extraterritorial nature, film festivals the world over have always permitted works to be shown and for filmmakers to present them freely and safely, even when certain States opposed this. The arrest of Roman Polanski in a neutral country, where he assumed he could travel without hindrance, undermines this tradition: it opens the way for actions of which no one can know the effects. Roman Polanski is a French citizen, a renown and international artist now facing extradition. This extradition, if it takes place, will be heavy in consequences and will take away his freedom. Filmmakers, actors, producers and technicians—everyone involved in international filmmaking—want him to know that he has their support and friendship. On September 16th, 2009, Mr. Charles Rivkin, the US Ambassador to France, received French artists and intellectuals at the embassy. He presented to them the new Minister Counselor for Public Affairs at the embassy, Ms Judith Baroody. In perfect French she lauded the Franco-American friendship and recommended the development of cultural relations between our two countries. If only in the name of this friendship between our two countries, we demand the immediate release of Roman Polanski.

    Diane von Furstenberg?
    So much for female unity in facing male barbaristic rape-age and pillage.

  2. m2 says:

    Woody Allen, there’s a shocker!!

  3. VotingFemale says:

    The people believe their own is above the law.

  4. m2 says:

    I am surprised about Sam Mendes and Wes Anderson… come on….
    Geezus.

    Hollywood elite are no different than the liberal elite in D.C. -they believe they are above common law…

    *cough* Rangel *cough*

  5. VotingFemale says:

    I hope they imprison Polanski for 99 years and a day. And, I hope Leftist Hollywood gets reset as the scumbags they are.

  6. m2 says:

    Is this guy related to Sofia Coppola? If so, that’s why Wes Anderson would sign the petition.

    Most people in Hollywood are there through family inheritance of power, or sheer creative force, but many are not part of the reality of this world… many are not even educated…

  7. VotingFemale says:

    Rangel? taxes are for ‘little people,’ eh Charlie?

  8. samiam60 says:

    Glad you made the post VF. This is Iconic of the tide that has swept America.

    America has slipped into total Depravity over the years. Just look at our Politics today, Hollywood, and the Fringe Media, and a large part of the American Public.

    Removing God from our Schools and from our Society has yielded the results we see today in America.

    The Proof is all around us and yet no one wants to touch the subject of a Godless America.

  9. VotingFemale says:

    Hollywood is an over paid slum….

  10. m2 says:

    I love those dolts!!!

    and Demi Moore says she’s ‘never had plastic surgery’…. where’d she go, the Barack Husein school of Lying!?

  11. VotingFemale says:

    yeah M2, they want America to pray at their alter… All Hail Obama, the People’s Master… thank God he showed up to save us all.

    BARF!!!!

  12. m2 says:

    The real embarrassment was when Kutcher was on Oprah and said that ‘finally… now… he can feel proud of the American flag. Because Husein is president.’

    That is just … beyond idiotic. Almost as idiotic as Obama’s UN speech where he said anything good now and in the future is all “ME ME ME” “I I I”

  13. samiam60 says:

    M2 I am thinking Demi Moore went to the Nancy Pelosi school of Wax Sculpture.

  14. VotingFemale says:

    Demi is 47 years old… and appears to have defied Mother Nature… that is the joke… no one fools Mother Nature.

    of course she has has facial surgery. who does she think she is fooling?

  15. m2 says:

    In fact I was thinking about Obama’s speech… he doesn’t write them himself, and isn’t his speech writer some 25 year old pampered white lib spoiled boy?

    Of course he’d write all of Obama’s speeches like Obutthole is the bees knees! He’s probably had no historical education. He’s just another programmed liberal brain-washed dolt who lives on perceptions and image instead of reality and historical reference.

    That crap with Prejean being asked a loaded question designed to create a problem for folks who have a right to their views and opinions and using her as a punching bag is typical of Hollywood BS.

    Private sector still losing lots of jobs
    Payroll-processing firm says 254,000 jobs were lost in September, more than expected but down slightly from August.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Private sector employment fell more than expected in September, but the pace of job losses continued to slow, according to a report released Wednesday.

    Automatic Data Processing, a payroll-processing firm, said private-sector employers cut 254,000 jobs in September, down from a revised 277,000 in August. It was the smallest monthly total since July 2008.

    The decline was greater than the 200,000 loss economists surveyed by Briefing.com had forecast. But the difference was “not statistically meaningful,” according to Joel Prakken, an ADP spokesman and chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, LLC.

    “The pattern of improvement in headline number is undeniable at this point,” Prakken said. Private sector payrolls will continue to decline at a slowing rate for the next few months before modest job growth resumes “in the first few months of 2010,” he added.

    Large businesses, those with 500 or more workers, let 61,000 workers go. Medium-sized businesses, with between 50 and 499 workers, shed 93,000 jobs. And small businesses, those with less than 50 workers, reduced payrolls by 100,000.

    Small businesses held will continue to shed more workers than larger and medium-sized firms, Prakken said. That’s because large businesses started shrinking payrolls earlier and therefore will recover sooner, he explained.

    The goods-producing sector cut 151,000 jobs in September, while the service sector shed 103,000 jobs. Employment in the manufacturing sector dropped by 74,000 jobs.

    The pattern of gradual improvement in the job market has been “fairly wide spread,” Prakken said. But employment in the construction and manufacturing sectors will remain weaker than the service sector, he added.

    Public sector employment, which ADP excludes from its report, is expected to decline significantly due to “pressure on states to cut costs and meet budgets,” Prakken said.

    ADP based its report on payroll data from about 500,000 employers across a broad range of industries.

    The report is seen as a precursor to Friday’s closely watched jobs report from the U.S. Labor Department.

    That report is expected to show that the economy shed 180,000 jobs in September, down from the 216,000 reported for August, according to a consensus estimate of economists compiled by Briefing.com. The unemployment rate is predicted to rise to 9.8% from 9.7%.

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court announced Wednesday it will return to the controversy over individual gun rights by hearing an appeal from a group of firearms owners in Chicago.

    They are challenging a lower appeals court ruling that said the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to guns only in the face of federal regulation, not against state and municipal restrictions.

    Included among 10 new disputes the justices added to their calendar Wednesday for the upcoming 2009-10 term, which begins next Monday, the guns case brings the court back to a sensational topic that pits uniquely American notions of frontier liberty against contemporary worries over urban violence.

    When the justices heard a case on the subject in March 2008, people began lining up in front of the court’s columned building two days early for a seat.

    The new dispute began in Chicago, which has a handgun ban similar to a Washington, D.C., ordinance that the Supreme Court struck down in June 2008 as a violation of the Second Amendment. In the 2008 case, District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court for the first time declared an individual right to firearms for self-defense and rejected a prevailing lower court view that the Second Amendment applied only to state “militia,” such as National Guard units.

    But the 5-4 decision left open a crucial question that could have more practical consequences for gun owners and for the states that would regulate them: Does the Second Amendment apply to the states and localities as it does to Washington, D.C., which is a federal jurisdiction.

    Because the Supreme Court has so rarely taken up Second Amendment cases, the amendment’s coverage in the states has never been fully determined — unlike the breadth of many of the other of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights.

    Thirty-four states had asked the Supreme Court to take up the gun advocates’ appeals and a separate one filed by the National Rifle Association against Chicago. (The justices did not act on that petition Wednesday.)

    Led by Texas state lawyers, 33 of the 34 states said in a joint filing, “Without this court’s review (of the Chicago cases), millions of Americans may be deprived of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.” California separately urged the court to take the Chicago disputes.

    “I have every confidence the Supreme Court will say that it is a freedom to be enjoyed by the entire American people not just those in federal enclaves,” said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA.

    “There’s no question that if the court applies the Second Amendment to the states that will encourage more challenges to gun laws,” said Dennis Henigan, a vice president at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “But when the dust clears, it is quite likely this decision will leave intact virtually all the state laws out there.”

    Henigan noted that the cases that have made it to the Supreme Court in recent terms have involved outright, but rare, bans and that lower courts so far have not been skeptical of registration and other less stringent firearms regulation.

    Chicago adopted its handgun ban in 1982, city officials told the high court, because of a rise in firearms-related deaths and because officials believed handguns were playing “a major role in the commission of homicide, aggravated assaults and armed robbery.”

    The legal dispute specifically tests whether the Second Amendment — written more than two centuries ago to cover only the federal government — may be extended to the states, as the First Amendment and many other protections of the Bill of Rights have been through 20th Century court rulings.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, which covers Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana, said the Second Amendment does not apply to the states. The appeals court stressed that the historical view of the Supreme Court was the amendment restricted the powers of the federal government.

    A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit took the opposite view in a decision earlier this year.

    A third U.S. appeals court, the New York-based 2nd Circuit, entered the controversy when it ruled in January that the Second Amendment does not cover the states.

    Then-Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor joined the opinion rejecting a challenge to a New York ban on certain weapons used in martial arts. That decision in Maloney v. Cuomo provoked some gun-rights groups to protest Sotomayor’s nomination. The NRA and other gun-rights advocates urged senators to vote against Sotomayor because of the Maloney v. Cuomo ruling.

    Lawyer Alan Gura, who represented the challengers to the Washington, D.C., ordinance two years ago, represents the Chicago gun owners. Gura stressed in his petitions that lower courts disagree about the extent of individuals’ right to have guns.

    The case, McDonald v. City of Chicago, is likely to be scheduled for January. A decision would come before the end of the term in late June 2010.

  52. samhenry says:

    A quick hello. Fox, if the USA article is correct, then until the matter of guns is resolved by those petitioning Chicagoans, then the Olympics should go elsewhere.

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court announced Wednesday it will return to the controversy over individual gun rights by hearing an appeal from a group of firearms owners in Chicago.

    US Income Gap Widens as Poor Take Hit in Recession
    Published: Tuesday, 29 Sep 2009 | 6:41 AM ET

    The recession has hit middle-income and poor families hardest, widening the economic gap between the richest and poorest Americans as rippling job layoffs ravaged household budgets.

    The wealthiest 10 percent of Americans — those making more than $138,000 each year — earned 11.4 times the roughly $12,000 made by those living near or below the poverty line in 2008, according to newly released census figures. That ratio was an increase from 11.2 in 2007 and the previous high of 11.22 in 2003.

    Household income declined across all groups, but at sharper percentage levels for middle-income and poor Americans. Median income fell last year from $52,163 to $50,303, wiping out a decade’s worth of gains to hit the lowest level since 1997.

    Poverty jumped sharply to 13.2 percent, an 11-year high.

    “No one should be surprised at the increased disparity,” said Richard Freeman, an economist at Harvard University. “Unemployment hurts normal workers who do not have the golden parachutes the folks at the top have.”

    Analysts attributed the widening gap to the wave of layoffs in the economic downturn that have devastated household budgets. They said while the richest Americans may be seeing reductions in executive pay, those at the bottom of the income ladder are often unemployed and struggling to get by.

    Large cities such as Atlanta, Washington, New York, San Francisco, Miami and Chicago had the most inequality, due largely to years of middle-class flight to the suburbs. Declining industrial cities with pockets of well-off neighborhoods, such as Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo, N.Y., also had sharp disparities.

    Up-and-coming cities with growing middle-class populations, such as Mesa, Ariz., Riverside, Calif., Arlington, Texas, and Henderson, Nev., were among the areas showing the least income differences between rich and poor.

    It’s unclear whether income inequality will continue to worsen in major cities, said William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. Many Americans are staying put for now in traditional cities to look for jobs and because of frozen lines of credit.

    “During the years of the housing bubble, there was middle-class movement from unaffordable metros with high-income inequality,” Frey said. “Now that the bubble burst, more of the population may be headed back to the high-inequality areas, stemming their middle-class losses.”

    Among other findings:

    Income at the top 5 percent of households — those making $180,000 or more — was 3.58 times the median income, the highest since 2006.
    Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia had higher poverty rates than the national average, many of them in the South, such as Mississippi (21.2 percent), Kentucky, Arkansas and Louisiana (each with 17.3 percent). That’s compared with 19 states and the District of Columbia that ranked above U.S. poverty in 2007.
    Use of food stamps jumped 13 percent last year to nearly 9.8 million U.S. households, led by Louisiana, Maine and Kentucky. The increase was most evident in households with two or more workers, highlighting the impact of the recession on both working families and unemployed single people.
    Pharr, Texas, and Flint, Mich., each had more than a third of its residents on food stamps, at 38.5 percent and 35.4 percent, respectively.
    Between 2007 and 2008, income at the 50th percentile (median) and the 10th percentile fell by 3.6 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively, compared with a 2.1 percent decline at the 90th percentile. Between 1999 and 2008, income at the 50th and 10th percentiles decreased 4.3 percent and 9 percent, respectively, while income at the 90th percentile was statistically unchanged.
    Plano, Texas, a Dallas suburb, had the highest median income among larger cities, earning $85,003. Cleveland ranked at the bottom, at $26,731.

    The findings come as the federal government considers new regulations to rein in executive pay at companies in which it has invested.

    President Barack Obama also typically cites the need for higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for health care overhaul and other measures, arguing that the wealthy have disproportionately benefited from tax cuts during the Bush administration.

    The 2008 figures come from the Current Population Survey and the American Community Survey, which gathers information from 3 million households.

    The government first began tracking household income in 1967.

    Houston Woman Fries and Eats Pet Goldfish After Fight With Husband

    PASADENA, Texas — Authorities say a Houston-area woman who was burned up at her former common-law husband fried their pet goldfish and ate some of them.

    Pasadena police say it’s a civil matter and no charges will be filed. The seven goldfish were purchased together by the couple during happier times.

    Police spokesman Vance Mitchell says the man reported on Saturday that the woman took the goldfish from his apartment.

    Mitchell says the two argued earlier about some jewelry the man had given her but took back. She wanted the jewelry returned.

    Officers who were dispatched to the woman’s home arrived to find four fried goldfish on a plate. The woman said she already ate the other three.

    Roman Polanski: What Did He Do?
    13-Year-Old’s Testimony Tells Story Behind Polanski’s Guilty Plea to Unlawful Sexual Intercourse

    In the more than 30 years since director Roman Polanski pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl and then fled the country before he was sentenced, he has continued to make movies and even won an Academy Award.

    Samantha Geiner talks about the 1977 crime in this 2003 interview.Meanwhile, the details of what actually happened on that day in March 1977 have receded, as even the victim, Samantha Geimer, has said she forgives Polanski and doesn’t think he should face further jail time.

    Now, with Polanski’s arrest over the weekend at the airport in Zurich, Switzerland, there’s been renewed interest in the still pending case.

    Polanski Arrest ‘Doesn’t Make Any Sense’Last year, transcripts of Geimer’s 1977 grand jury testimony, which resulted in six charges against Polanski, were made public. The transcipts include shocking details of 13-year-old Geimer testifying that the 43-year-old Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude before performing oral, vaginal and anal intercourse on her, despite her demands to “keep away.”

    A former Los Angeles prosecutor who worked on the case said he believes that if people knew all the details, they would have less sympathy for Polanski.

    “It’s outrageous,” David Wells, a former assistant district attorney on the case, told ABCNews.com. “This pedophile raped a 13-year-old girl. It’s still an outrageous offense. It’s a good thing he was arrested. I wish it would have happened years before.”

    According to Geimer’s testimony, Polanski first met Geimer at her home on Feb. 13, 1977. Geimer said the director asked her mother if he could photograph her for French Vogue. She said her mother agreed to a private photo shoot, which Geimer told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in 2003 that she believed would help further her acting career.

    The director returned nearly a week later to take Geimer for the photo shoot about a block from her home. Geimer said that at the top of a hill, Polanski asked her to change shirts, which she did in front of him.

    Then, she said, he asked her to pose topless, which she also did, though she said she felt uncomfortable.

    The left aims for critics’ jugular

    Liberal allies of President Barack Obama aren’t just getting mad at conservative attacks on his agenda. They are getting even in a way calculated to hit conservatives where it counts: their pockets.

    Former GOP House leader Dick Armey, former New York lt. gov. and conservative activist Betsy McCaughey and even Fox News’s Glenn Beck have all seen their financial livelihoods threatened by political activists — who in several cases managed to make good on the threats.

    The latest prominent figure in liberal cross hairs is U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue. Environmental activists, citing alleged conflicts of interest, have begun a campaign to pressure him to resign from the board of Union Pacific Railroad or from his longtime post as head of the nation’s top business lobby.

    “We’re losing our self-government with these Chicago-style arm-twisting tactics,” complained McCaughey, who resigned from the board of Cantel Medical Group after the firm was connected — unfairly, according to it and McCaughey — to her claims that Obama’s health care reform would lead to death panels and other calamities. “Clearly, it’s an effort to silence critics,” she added.

    McCaughey and other Obama critics are falling victim to tactics honed as much by the right as by the left: Bloggers research the opposition and post material that is picked up by allies on cable talk shows, who push it into the broader media.

    But the new twist is that private firms, some with little connection to the policy debate and little warning, are being hauled into the public courtyard because of their association with an advocate-employee.

    Several progressive groups are employing versions of the tactic, not as part of a coordinated effort but often enough to seem more than coincidence.

    Faiz Shakir, editor of the progressive ThinkProgress blog, said the juncture of personal finances and political positions is fair game.

    “The information we’ve put out is reliable, accurate and truthful,” he said. “They put themselves out there as the leading opponents of health care reform, and, in doing so, they were not truthful and transparent about other motives they may have had.”

    Justin Ruben, executive director of MoveOn.org, is also unapologetic for pushing back against Obama’s critics.

    “We said all along that we would take on the opposition and anyone standing in the way” of the White House agenda, he said.

    “August was a real wake-up call for progressives when health care reform was endangered by an angry mob organized by an alliance of insurance companies, oil companies and right-wing fear-mongers,” he added.

    Empire State Building Goes Red for Communist China, Sparking Protest.

    NEW YORK — New York is seeing red over the decision to turn the city’s highest beacon — and one of America’s symbols for free enterprise — into a shining monument honoring China’s communist revolution Wednesday night.

    The Empire State Building is set to be illuminated in red and yellow lights to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the bloody communist takeover.

    The tower is lit in white most nights, but nearly every week gets splashed with color to honor holidays and heroes — red, white and blue for Independence Day, green for St. Patrick’s Day, true blue for New York’s Finest.

    The building’s managers say they have honored a host of countries, including Canada, India and Australia, but as of Wednesday that list of honorees now includes one of the world’s last great authoritarian regimes.

    Tourists were squirming as the city’s 102-story landmark — which gained a special significance for New Yorker’s after 9/11, when it again became Manhattan’s tallest building — was being converted into a shining red beacon for Chinese communism.

    “I think it’s a bad idea,” said Dick Paasch, 69, from Billings, Montana. “The Chinese Revolution … in the years 1958-1960, there were something like 26 million people starved to death. Why would we want to celebrate something like that?

    “I think the Chinese have come a long way since then, but I certainly wouldn’t celebrate the revolution,” he said.

    Representatives for the building say it won’t incur any extra costs to use the colored floodlights, so taxpayers won’t have to pay a dime. But tourists thought it would have been better if the building would have stayed white this Wednesday.

    “It seems a little out of place in New York City, an American city, having communist colors,” said Cathy Crismore of Lancaster, California. “That doesn’t seem right.”

    New York politicians have paid notice as well, and say they are let down by the light-up. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., said it was a mistake to pay tribute to what he called “a nation with a shameful history on human rights.”

    Historians of the revolution noted the unimaginable — and often forgotten — toll of the revolution and China’s communist rule, which has taken tens of millions of lives through years of war, famine, reeducation and wholesale slaughter.

    “China gets treatment that other dictatorships can only dream of — a free pass on human rights,” said Arthur Waldron, a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

    The revolution and its aftermath may have been deadlier than any world war: though estimates vary, research from the historian Chang Jung shows that as many as 72 million people died as a result.

    During one five-year period alone, the Great Famine of 1958-1962, 36 million Chinese are believed to have starved as a result of Mao’s Great Leap Forward, a government policy meant to industrialize the nation.

    During those years of ruin, peasants ate bark, maggots, bird droppings, human flesh — anything to survive — as government storehouses stood full with grain and other cereals, neither the first nor last in China’s troubled line of violations of human rights.

    “China remains strongly oppressive — but we make a lot of money, and we have a tendency to romanticize the country, confusing her brilliant cultural heritage with the current communist regime,” said Waldron. “Will we light it in honor of Tibet?”

    About 40 protesters massed outside the Empire State Building Wednesday morning as China’s New York consul attended a ceremony the building’s managers said was to honor “the 1.3 billion Chinese people and the 60th anniversary of their country.”

    “Because the Empire State Building is such a cultural icon … this touches a chord close to home for people,” said Lhadon Tethong, a leader of the demonstrators from Students for a Free Tibet.

    Tethong said that the lights on the building “are a symbol of support for the Chinese state — for a totalitarian state,” which ignores the country’s “abominable record on human rights, on liberty.”

    Waldron, of the University of Pennsylvania, said he thought there would be an outcry if another brutal regime were so honored by the tower.

    “Would we have lit the Empire State Building for the USSR knowing what we do about the Gulag?

    POOR DAN RATHER

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/30/business/media/30cbs.html

    Dan Rather’s expensive attempt at vindication against his former employer CBS was repudiated Tuesday by the appellate division of New York State Supreme Court, which ruled unanimously to dismiss the $70 million lawsuit he had brought against the network in 2007.

    Louis J. Briskman, the general counsel for CBS, said of the decision, “The simple answer is: the case is over.”

    Mr. Rather’s lawyer, Martin R. Gold, said “that’s nonsense” and said that he would appeal the decision to New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals.

    Mr. Rather, a longtime anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” had been seeking damages in a claim that his contract was breached by CBS management and that his reputation was unfairly tarnished by the network’s handling of an investigation into his report on “60 Minutes II” into President George W. Bush’s National Guard record.

    The report stirred a firestorm among Republicans and many of Mr. Rather’s enemies on the political right. CBS initiated what it called an independent investigation of the report. Before the report was released, Mr. Rather announced that he would step down from his anchor position — and later charged that his contract had been violated by how he was treated after the report.

    Mr. Rather’s lawyers had asked the appellate court to reinstate several claims in the suit that that been dismissed by a New York Supreme Court judge, Ira Gammerman. At the same time, CBS asked the judge to dismiss the claims he had allowed to stand.

    The case originally included five claims. Judge Gammerman had previously dismissed three and retained a breach of contract claim and a breach of fiduciary duty claim.

    The appellate court voted 5 to 0 to order all the claims in the suit dismissed, saying, “The motion court erred in denying the defendants’ motion to dismiss the claims for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, and therefore we find the complaint must be dismissed in its entirety.”

    A representative said that Mr. Rather would have no comment Tuesday. Previously he said of his pursuit of the case, “I want to go the distance.”

    Mr. Gold said the decision had left the Rather side “unhappy, dismayed and surprised,” adding that “the court saw the case differently than we did.”

    But he said he had described to Mr. Rather the option of taking the case to the Court of Appeals and that Mr. Rather had said to go forward. “I think we have a good shot,” Mr. Gold said.

    He acknowledged that the court did not have to accept the case, and if it did not “then it would be over.”

    Mr. Gold also conceded that taking the case another step meant additional expense for Mr. Rather, who by all accounts has spent heavily to pursue the suit.

    “I agree with that 100 percent,” Mr. Gold said, adding that filing an application to the Court of Appeals would not be a “huge undertaking” and that only if the court accepted the case would the expense grow significantly.

    As of last November, the cost to Mr. Rather was more than $2 million. On Tuesday, Mr. Briskman, the CBS lawyer, said he estimated that Mr. Rather might have spent as much as $5 million on the case.

    He and other CBS executives expressed regret Tuesday at the cost to Mr. Rather, both financially and in the damage to what had been a 44-year relationship between Mr. Rather and CBS.

    Mr. Briskman said that despite what seemed to him to be a convincing final victory in court, the case was tinged with sadness.
    “Dan was a great anchor for us,” Mr. Briskman said. “I hate the whole thing. The whole situation is pathetic. To have to fight Dan Rather is pathetic. I really wish the whole thing would just go away.”

    SOMEBODY needs to report Whoopi to the Moonbat Patrol. Let me take the folks down memory lane regarding Whoppi Goldberg & the girl rape situation.

    Whoppi Goldbert whined for yrs. about how the movie Color Purple was so terrible on her psychic.

    See, in real life she used to be on welfare & struggled her way out of poverty. She knows what happens to young girls in such environment.

    Then in Color Purple movie she played the part of a poor young black girl raped by her dad … she got pregnant. Has she forgot that scene? Does she need to be reminded of the part she played w/Danny Glover. YUCK!!! That was the scene when her rapist dad sold her off to Danny Glover & she got in back of wagon. When Glover got her to his house, SHE DID NOT RUN or SCREAM.

    Since she did NOT run & scream or tried to escape from Glover, does that mean she was consenting to what Glover did to her? That is the question Whoopi needs to answer.

  103. Kynikos says:

    I called Rev. Manning on his live radio show earlier today. I brought up about that boy in Chicago who was brutally beaten to death & about Obama going to Copenhagen to pitch for Olympics to be held there.

    Manning told me that he’s surprised that nobody has not already suggested to Obama that he should invite those Chicago kids (who witnessed the killing) to the WH to discuss values & morales.

    Manning said that Oprah, Jeremiah Wright & Jesse Jackson Jr. actually live in CHICAGO; yet neither one of them have done anything about this street killing nor weighed in on it.

    Its not known if Obama has even reached out to the boys family.

    GREAT post!! I agree about how the ‘left and right’ are exploiting the gays…..I personally could care less if someone is ‘gay’ or care anything about that lifestyle. I don’t agree with that lifestyle, but that is NOT any of my business what someone else does in their PRIVATE life.
    The ONLY time I get upset, is when that lifestyle is FORCED on me by one of them and attempts made to make ME out to be intolerant because I happen to believe it is UN-NATURAL and immoral and NOT just ‘born’ that way in MOST cases….it is those that attempt to justify their sexual preference that make me sick and show it is THEY who are the intolerant ones!!
    —I don’t want nor need to know who is screwing who ….who the hell cares, just don’t force your sex life or style on others–doesn’t matter if you are gay or not—-it should be peoples PRIVATE business….not a public declaration IMO.

    US Faces Retro 70s Inflation: Jim Rogers

    The US faces high inflation because of the weak dollar and the Federal Reserve’s policy of printing money to counter the effects of the crisis, legendary investor Jim Rogers told CNBC Thursday.

    Price rises in the US are already steeper than the inflation rate reported by the government, Rogers added.

    “There’s no question the US is vulnerable to hyperinflation down the road or certainly the inflation we saw in the 1970s, I would expect that to come back in the foreseeable future, certainly in the next few years,” he said.

    “The true inflation rate in America? It’s certainly at least 6 or 7 percent, the US government lies about it, as you know, everybody who shops knows that prices are up, everybody except the US government, and I wish we knew where they shopped so we can shop there too and get good prices.”

    Rogers repeated his view that the Fed’s quantitative easing program is “debasing the currency” and said he was “extremely worried” about the fate of the dollar over the long term.

    Asia is the region where investors should go, as countries in that region have strong reserves while once-strong economies such as the US and the UK are now in debt, he said. But investors should do their homework.

    “If you don’t know where China is on the map you shouldn’t invest any in Asia… but if you know a lot about Asia and know what you’re doing, you should probably have a lot in Asia,” he said, adding that stock markets aren’t attractive now.

    “I’m not buying shares in any country right now, most stock markets around the world are up through the roof, especially in Asia,” Rogers said.

  151. tellitlikeitis says:

    They want interest rates to kill us and give them more property through more defaults. We have not seen the last of the defaults.

    The crook at the top of Bank of America resigned. He should have done so months ago. Now my question is: at what point does the government privatize these industries again? This is very unsettling. Also unsettling, the fact that Saturn is biting the dust although the car has been problematic in recent time.

  158. samhenry says:

    Also, is it the executive branch that is running these companies?

    So I still maintain they have the “Progressive” label wrong… progressive means innovative, which is a free-market individual make it happen…

    they’re “Regressive”… also obvious b/c they condone old men raping young children. Reminds me of the middle ages.

    U.S., Iran Hold One-on-One Talks on Sidelines of Nuclear Negotiations
    Administration officials say that while gaining access to inspect Iran’s uranium enrichment facility near Qom is “critically important,” the U.S. won’t walk away from negotiations if Iran refuses.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/10/01/wont-push-sanctions-nuke-talks-iran/

    Representatives from the United States and Iran met one-on-one Thursday in a rare overture on the sidelines of talks over Tehran’s nuclear program.

    William Burns, U.S. undersecretary of state, and Saeed Jalili, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, held the bilateral discussion. Officials said ahead of the Geneva negotiations that such an encounter was possible, if Burns decided it would move along U.S. objectives.

    The one-on-one meeting amounts to a huge shift in U.S. willingness to negotiate with Iran. The last time the U.S. attended the so-called P5 +1 talks — which includes the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — it did so merely as an observer.

    The United States was at the table Thursday with the five other world powers in trying to persuade Tehran to provide full access to its nuclear program. The meeting is seen as a critical chance for Iran to either shift course or further alienate the international community.

    However, senior administration officials said the U.S. would not push for sanctions against Iran at the Geneva talks.

    The officials also said that while gaining access to inspect Iran’s uranium enrichment facility near Qom is “critically important,” the U.S. won’t walk away from negotiations if Iran refuses.

    “Tomorrow is the negotiations track and that is the thrust,” a senior official said ahead of the talks. “The thrust is dealing with this nuclear program and trying to get a process underway to address the growing international concern. These will not be easy talks.”

    The talks were expected to last the full day.

    Three senior officials intimately involved in the Iranian nuclear issue briefed reporters at the White House. Significantly, they avoided the term “sanctions” in describing the administration approach to talks with Iran, preferring the term “pressure track.”

    “Just as you prepare the ground for negotiations, which we have done, you also prepare the ground in case this doesn’t work out. We’ve done a lot of preparing the ground so that we would be credible on the pressure track,” an official said. “The first objective is to affect Iranian behavior. We want this process to succeed. If it’s not going to succeed, there has to be consequences. This is a bona-fide offer to negotiate this nuclear problem, to deal with it. Having said that, we have been quite diligent about building the other side of the track as well.”

    While the U.S. is demanding international inspections of Iran’s previously covert uranium enrichment facility near Qom, the U.S. is prepared to keep talking if Iran refuses. Iran has already said the Qom site does not violate non-proliferation rules and inspections are unnecessary.

    “Access to Qom by the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) is critically important,” one official said. “But I’m being cautious because I don’t know what’s going to be put on the table from the other side. The Iranians should grant access to Qom in a timely fashion. This would be an important thing for the Iranians to do.”

    More broadly, officials said Iran needs to take “practical steps” and “produce measurable results,” and needs to do so “at a pace that makes sense” for nuclear talks to continue. “The pace, the tempo of the negotiations is a critical part of this.”

    As for a timeline, one official said Iran must prove its willingness to negotiate in a matter of weeks.

    The officials said Iran faces a “very, very stark choice” to either abandon its pursuit of weapons-grade nuclear material or face “isolation, pressure, sanctions and other steps.”

    The U.S. has begun to draw up what officials described as “six to eight categories” of potential sanctions designed to affect Iran in “a material way.”

    The officials would not specify the type of sanctions that are being considered or say if nations like Russia had dropped long-standing objections to sanctions that would hit businesses in Iran unrelated to nuclear proliferation activities. The officials were similarly mum on whether other nations, namely China, had dropped objections to sanctions on refined petroleum products. China is a major gasoline supplier to Iran through various non-official mechanisms.

    “I don’t think we should go into details on what we’ve discussed with various nations,” an official said. “The conversations take place in different ways with different countries. There’s a diplomatic process underway on discussions about the pressure track.”

    The officials said if Iran rebuffs what they described as a “serious, bona fide offer” to trade pursuit of weapons-grade nuclear material for enhanced trade and financial ties, the U.S. is prepared to pursue sanctions through one of three mechanisms: the United Nations Security Council; regional groups (such as the European Union); or the U.S. applying sanctions with “like-minded” nations.

    Officials said the U.S. has built a “united front” against Iran’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons, adding Iran “needs to find a way to respond because if they don’t, they will pay the price for it.”

    Officials said the Obama administration has been engaged since early summer in negotiations with Security Council nations and others on devising a sanctions strategy should Iran remain recalcitrant.

    The officials said Iran is facing increased international isolation due to disclosure of the Qom facility, which is not yet operational but which the U.S. regards as a clear violation of disclosure commitments.

    “The Qom announcement has brought unity and a sense of purpose to the P5+1 process,” an official said. “Even sympathizers to the Iranians were sadly surprised. It has really put a lot of pressure on the Iranians.”

    Senior administration officials also said blowing the cover on the Qom uranium enrichment facility has denied Iran a negotiating chip and undermined its ability to covertly produce — once the facility came on line in roughly three months — to produce weapons-grade nuclear material.

    “It is going to be the centerpiece of conversations,” one official said, referring to access to Qom. “There’s not a lot of dispute about the core facts.”

    Another Failed Presidency
    By Geoffrey P. Hunt

    Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson.

    In the modern era, we’ve seen several failed presidencies–led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait– they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant overture to China.

    George Bush Jr didn’t fail so much as he was perceived to have been too much of a patrician while being uncomfortable with his more conservative allies. Yet George Bush Sr is still perceived as a man of uncommon decency, loyal to the enduring American character of rugged self-determination, free markets, and generosity. George W will eventually be treated more kindly by historians as one whose potential was squashed by his own compromise of conservative principles, in some ways repeating the mistakes of his father, while ignoring many lessons in executive leadership he should have learned at Harvard Business School. Of course George W could never quite overcome being dogged from the outset by half of the nation convinced he was electorally illegitimate — thus aiding the resurgence of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

    But, Barack Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorothy Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame.

    But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president riding in on a wave of unprecedented promise and goodwill have forfeited his tenure and become a lame duck in six months? His poll ratings are in free fall. In generic balloting, the Republicans have now seized a five point advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What’s going on?

    No narrative. Obama doesn’t have a narrative. No, not a narrative about himself. He has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn’t connect with us. He doesn’t have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American character that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans. We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. Presidents we admire are aspirational peers, even those whose politics don’t align exactly with our own: Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Harry Truman, Ike, Reagan.

    But not this president. It’s not so much that he’s a phony, knows nothing about economics, is historically illiterate, and woefully small minded for the size of the task– all contributory of course. It’s that he’s not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper. Moreover, he doesn’t command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don’t add up. They are not existential. His descriptions of the world we live in don’t make sense and don’t correspond with our experience.

    In the meantime, while we’ve been struggling to take a measurement of this man, he’s dissed just about every one of us–financiers, energy producers, banks, insurance executives, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, post office workers, and anybody else who has a non-green job. Expect Obama to lament at his last press conference in 2012: “For those of you I offended, I apologize. For those of you who were not offended, you just didn’t give me enough time; if only I’d had a second term, I could have offended you too.”

    Mercifully, the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 devised a useful remedy for such a desperate state–staggered terms for both houses of the legislature and the executive. An equally abominable Congress can get voted out next year. With a new Congress, there’s always hope of legislative gridlock until we vote for president again two short years after that.

    Yes, small presidents do fail, Barack Obama among them. The coyotes howl but the wagon train keeps rolling along.

    Hey there Voting Female, thanks for linking!

    Just one comment, yikes, as an American Christian Right-Winger living in Amman Jordan, the reference to paying back Islamic bastards made me cringe a bit.

    It was horrific, yes never forget, but most of my friends in the Muslim world were just as horrified and sad, and I don’t want them getting paid-back for that the true bastards did. In Amman, we had our own 9/11, consecutive bombings at three hotels where the only casualties WERE Muslims.

    Just sayin’. :)

  240. VotingFemale says:

    Hi kinzi!

    You are very welcome, dear!

    On your comment about my statement about 911…

    Perhaps you have inferred all Islamics… but I clearly stated: “We will NEVER forget what Those Islamic Bastards did on 911. Payback is a bitch!”

    The point is “Those Islamic Bastards”… not “All Islamic Bastards.” They did it in the name of Allah and Islam… I did not put those words in their mouths… they did that themselves.

    I do have an issue with the Public Silence of the American Islamic Community with regards to a glaring lack of the American Islamic Community’s publicly condemnation of Islamic Terrorism, as a whole.

    Rev. Fred Phelps is a Christian Terrorist who shoots off his mouth instead of guns or bombs… I speak out against such Christian nutjobs… and I am a Christian.

    The Behavior of Rev Fred Phelps and others of his ilk not only does not merit a pass from me, it does not merit a pass from any real Christian.

    What Rev Fred Phelps does is in the name of Christianity.

    When I speak out about his behavior it is as a Christian and it is not a condemnation of Christians who are not nutjob enablers and promoters of what Rev Fred Phelps spews. Phelps being a Christian does not give him a pass… nor does his being a Christian warrant a lack of condemnation from all Christians for his behavior.

    Woohoo, Voting Female, you are a live one! You are not one to overlook comment #250something, either.

    You are right, it does say THOSE particular people, but they are currently reaping their reward. Who would payback be paid to?

    Great point about calling out “Rev” Phelps, I for one have not done that on my blog and need to. Mark Sanford, yes, Ted Haggart, yes, Phelps, no.

    I am having a hard time figuring out what to do with your comment. I may get cyber-slain by lib commentors for linking Bill Reilly, and by Muslims for the content. Being on the ground, I try not to intentionally rile things up TOO much.

    Maybe I’ll have to write a post about it, on topic and just be a little more controversial than usual.

    Maybe I would get 250 comments! Maybe I’d also get deported. Hhhmmmm. Anyway, I’m traveling back to the US in a few days and can’t post for awhile anyway. Just so you don’t think I am a chicken, although I am. :)

  242. Hey VF, very well said and so true on the American Islamic Community and that woman in the vid above representing them. VERY STINKY, FRIGGIN STINKY. Originally I thought wow (as I watched this episode) after she started her backsliding my stomach turned.

    Not only did they do that crap in DC, but it was organized by TERRORIST and TERRORIST groups as well.

    THAT is precisely why the Muslim/Islamic community (You know the peaceful ones that don’t read the Quarn’ where it commands to kill all infidels?) Refused to participate in the Praying Event by Islamics in DC.

    I don’t understand that either. Why they all read and preach from the same Koran but some decide not to or let others do the infidel murders, etc. While the peaceful muslims pretend not to see that in their preachings.

    VF, you are very politically correct on everything you do, I try to be but could never hold a candle to you or how well you handle everything that you do.

    Me? I call it like I see it. You know there is nothing you can do to help those that refuse to see just how destructive their religion can be.

    Religions are and should be loving, not hating. However, hating is pretty much all we’ve seen coming from islam/muslim not to metion Sharia Law, good grief.

    Which I guess Creeping Sharia will kill us all eventually…

  243. Oh yea and the girl in the above vid representing the American Islamic Community clearly denys and ignores the obvious hatred being taught based on Allah.

    Excuse me? Attorney General Holder? What kinda crap of an example is he? ErrUmm, a crappy one!

    Muslims around the world to stop violence in the name of Allah? Right? Ahahahha
