GUARDIAN REPORTER BEN JACOBS BODY SLAMMING AUDIO: Listen to Montana Congressional Candidate Greg Gianforte 'body slam' Guardian Reporter . WTH?

This sh*t has got to stop.

Politicians need to keep their hands off of reporters.

It happened again today when Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian newspaper was "body slammed" to the floor in Wednesday by Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate in Thursday's special election for Montana's open U.S. House seat.

The political body slam of the week....

Oh, it has been caught on tape...and maybe on video.

Reporter Jacobs was at an event in Bozeman...doing his job....covering this campaign. Gianforte needs to be put into handcuffs and hauled away. Unacceptable.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ORDER NO. 3915-2017: The facts of the investigation from the Department of Justice

Seal of the United States Department of Justice

BREAKING: Special Counsel to Investigate Russian Involvement in  


Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein today announced the appointment of former Department of Justice official and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III to serve as Special Counsel to oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.

“In my capacity as acting Attorney General, I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a Special Counsel to assume responsibility for this matter,” said Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. “My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein added, “Each year, the career professionals of the U.S. Department of Justice conduct tens of thousands of criminal investigations and handle countless other matters without regard to partisan political considerations. I have great confidence in the independence and integrity of our people and our processes. Considering the unique circumstances of this matter, however, I determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome. Our nation is grounded on the rule of law, and the public must be assured that government officials administer the law fairly. Special Counsel Mueller will have all appropriate resources to conduct a thorough and complete investigation, and I am confident that he will follow the facts, apply the law and reach a just result.”

Special Counsel Mueller has agreed to resign from his private law firm in order to avoid any conflicts of interest with firm clients or attorneys.

ORDER NO. 3915-2017 APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE WITH THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND RELATED MATTERS By virtue of the authority vested in me as Acting Attorney General, including 28 U.S.C. §§ 509, 510, and 515, in order to discharge my responsibility to provide supervision and management of the Department of Justice, and to ensure a full and thorough investigation of the Russian govemmenfs efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, I hereby order as follows: (a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed t() serve as Specia] Counsel for the United States Department of Justice. (b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confinned by then-FBI Director James 8. Corney in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including: (i) any links and/or coordination bet ween the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a). (c) If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters. (d) Sections 600.4 through 600. l 0 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations are applicable to the Special Counsel.

Now that she is the Secretary of Education, Let's Give Betsy DeVoss a chance.

So I get a real kick out of everybody who is complaining about Betsy DeVos being the new secretary of education.

Let's go back in history to the mid-1980s and what happened during the Reagan administration

In his first press conference as secretary in 1985, new Department of Education Secretary Bill Bennett set the tone for his administration of the department by calling college students "beach bums" who "ought to give up their stereos to pay tuition instead of expecting government aid."

Later, Bennett called some universities "rip-offs" that "graduate almost any warm body" and referred to the Chicago school system as "the blob."  (Thanks LA Times for the quick reminder about what took place 30 years ago).

I think we all need to give Betsy DeVos a chance...

what the heck ...

the sky was falling back in the 70s and 80s and I think we all turned out pretty amazing....

Lyvette Crespo strikes plea deal after she shot and killed my friend former Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo. I am OUTRAGED!

The Los Angeles County District Attorney just issued the following statement on the plea deal...

Slain Mayor’s Wife Pleads Guilty to Voluntary Manslaughter The wife of slain Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo pleaded guilty today to voluntary manslaughter for the death of her husband two years ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced. Lyvette Crespo, 45, entered her plea before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy. She is expected to be sentenced on Jan. 5 to 90 days in county jail, five years formal probation, 500 hours of community service and an anger management course. She was charged last year in a Grand Jury indictment with voluntary manslaughter for shooting her 45- year-old husband three times in the chest while they were at home on Sept. 30, 2014. Deputy District Attorneys Beth Silverman and Tannaz Mokayef with the Major Crimes Division prosecuted the case. Case BA435205 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. 

I took this photo of Daniel Crespo just weeks before he was shot and killed by his wife.  I am so outraged right now...
I am beyond outraged right now.
Lyvette Crespo shot and killed my dear friend former ell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo a few years ago and today she pleaded guilty Wednesday to voluntary manslaughter.
In a deal struck with the district attorney’s office, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Lyvette will be sentenced to 90 days in county jail and placed on probation for five years. She will also have to complete 500 hours of community service and an anger management course.
I am fit to be tied over this plea deal.
Daniel Crespo did not deserved to get shot and killed in cold blood....regardless of having been involved in a rocky and sometimes violent (by BOTH parties) marriage.
I pray for Lyvette today and for their children.

Trump's Historical Trump Presidential Win Brings Out "CALEXIT" Movement, With Democratic Political Wind Bags Spew 'Goo

This Video is Dedicated to THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! I am so excited that America's 45th President-Elect is Donald J. Trump.

I was on the Trump Train for the past 18 months, and worked very hard to communicate with media members across the country, and up and down California about who actually was the "people" behind the movement... 

I was proud to go to Cleveland as a member of the California Republican Party Delegation to support Mr. Trump.  I am a Proud American, and support open, honest and free elections.  I am also a Native Californian who believes in the "Dream" the Golden State represents to the world around us....

The Trump campaign was diverse. A Rainbow of supports from all walks of life were actively working to help take America into a different direction.

I have always admired Donald Trump...for decades.  

Now, with this election now officially over, and with the Trump Train still riding high all across the Land of Milk and Honey... I can no longer sit silent about what's happening inside the "establishment" of the California Democratic Party.

I wanted to share some of the "official statements" that have been sent out by high ranking DEMOCRATIC elected officials, as well as from Democratic Party "leaders" who now appear will never accept President Trump as the new Commander in Chief and the Leader of the Free World.

Some of the big wigs in Sacramento, including Democratic Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and State Senate President Pro-Tem Kevin De Leon have even gone so far as to suggest that California leave the United States and to start it's own nation.

Oh sure, they may not be saying the actual words.... "we're outta here..." but their "official" messages scream treasonous tones to me and many others...

Here is what Speaker Rendon and Senate Pro-Tem De Leon said in a joint statement on Wednesday....

"Today, we woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land, because yesterday Americans expressed their views on a pluralistic and democratic society that are clearly inconsistent with the values of the people of California.
We have never been more proud to be Californians.
By a margin in the millions, Californians overwhelmingly rejected politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny.
The largest state of the union and the strongest driver of our nation’s economy has shown it has its surest conscience as well.
California is – and must always be – a refuge of justice and opportunity for people of all walks, talks, ages and aspirations – regardless of how you look, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love. 
California has long set an example for other states to follow. And California will defend its people and our progress. We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility.
We will be reaching out to federal, state and local officials to evaluate how a Trump Presidency will potentially impact federal funding of ongoing state programs, job-creating investments reliant on foreign trade, and federal enforcement of laws affecting the rights of people living in our state. We will maximize the time during the presidential transition to defend our accomplishments using every tool at our disposal.
While Donald Trump may have won the presidency, he hasn’t changed our values. America is greater than any one man or party. We will not be dragged back into the past. We will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution.
California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.

Then their is this official statement from Eric C. Bauman, the Chairman of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party as well as Vice Chairman of the California Democrats. 
“The election of Donald Trump ushers in one of the darkest eras in our nation’s modern  political history. Many across the state and country are frightened, and they are right to fell that way.
“But now is not the time to give in, now is not the time to give up. Now is not the time to capitulate… now is the time to stand up and fight!
“I call upon Governor Jerry Brown and our State Legislature to pass constitutional amendments and statutes to safeguard the people of California from Donald Trump’s dystopian worldview.
“I have already begun discussions about these concepts with California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon who agrees with me that these are important steps to protect California’s future. Now is the time to shore up California’s mantle as a beacon of hope in the coming years.Donald Trump has promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and he has the votes in Congress to do it. So, we must enshrine a right to quality health care for all into our state’s constitution.
“Donald Trump has promised to deport all undocumented immigrants with a “deportation force.” We must do all we can to shield undocumented immigrants from Trump’s clutches, and empower our institutions to refuse to turn over lists of names to agencies who attempt to ferret out those who live in the shadows and on the margins.
“If Donald Trump follows through with his promise to block entry into the United States for Muslims, we must speak out loudly in opposition, and if he attempts to create a system to “register” all Muslims who already live here, we must instruct our institutions to refuse to cooperate.
“Donald Trump has said he will appoint conservative Supreme Court Justices and federal judges who will overturn Roe v. Wade, marriage equality, and innumerable anti-discrimination laws. Therefore, we must ensure that California’s constitution clearly enshrines the right for women to make their own reproductive healthcare choices, for people to marry whomever they love and to be protected from all forms of discrimination.
“If Donald Trump appoints federal judges who attempt to limit first amendment protections for free speech, we must enshrine in our state constitution the strongest freedoms for the press in the country.
“If Donald Trump’s administration and Supreme Court Justices try to limit the ability for working men and women to organize and bargain collectively, we must ensure that our state’s constitution maintains the strongest protections for these essential rights.
“If Donald Trump appoints officials who deny the grave dangers of climate change and green light the pollution and degradation of our land, air and water, our laws must continue to keep California as a world leader on these fronts.
“Several months ago, I facetiously called on Governor Brown to build a wall around California to keep Donald Trump out. Today, on a more serious note, I sincerely call on Governor Brown and our Legislature to build a metaphorical legal wall to keep our residents safe from the grim and cynical vision that Donald Trump has laid out for America.
“The battle is not over, it has just begun. Standing up to a man like Donald Trump won’t be easy, but it wasn’t easy to win our rights in the first place. Progress is never easy.
“It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work, and let the world know that California will never let hate win. We will always be a bastion of freedom and the protector of the real American dream.”
Eric C. Bauman
Vice-Chair, California Democratic Party
Chair, Los Angeles County Democratic Party

Maybe the rank and file members of the CA and Los Angeles County Democratic Party need to rethink giving Bauman the keys to the front door....and direct access to millions of dollars that comes along with the gig.

I wish Bauman, Rendon and De Leon the very best of luck in their upcoming movement to have California leave the United States. How is that going to work out boyz? Maybe Tom Steyer can pick up the tab...

Hillary Clinton has a new campaign theme song, Billy Joel's 'She Always A Woman to Me!'

Billy Joel and Donald Trump.  
By Randy Economy

 I have got to thank an amazing friend of mine...I will protect his name for obvious reasons...

He reminded me that Billy Joel's amazing legendary song "She's Always A Woman to Me," fits the exact persona of Hillary Clinton.

Makes perfect sense.

Election day is on Tuesday.  For the record....I have NEVER been a fan of the Clinton's, from Day One, thirty plus years ago.  My feelings are just as strong today.

Here are the words....from the iconic song...

"She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes 
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies 
And she only reveals what she wants you to see 
She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me 

She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you 
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe you 
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free 
 Yeah she steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me 

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants 
She's ahead of her time 
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in 
She just changes her mind 
 And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden 
Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding 
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be 
 Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me 

Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants 
She's ahead of her time 
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in 
She just changes her mind"

WIKILEAKS: Podesta Questioned 'Heritage' of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

Even though this happened like two weeks ago....I still wanted to weigh in...

So, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has made the world famous Hillary Clinton E-Mail Dump on Wikileaks.. 

Clinton Guru John Podesta who his Chief of Staff Sara Latham back in 2008 about Garcetti's background.

....what he is....or is he Latino, Italian, Descendent from Mexican Immigrants?

The only connection the Clinton's have EVER HAD to Los Angeles is the fact that they use this turf as a cash register for their political needs.  They always have...It is shocking to see how little they really know about us...

On November 18, 2008....

Garcetti Event Postponed

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to postpone the event with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti originally scheduled for this Thursday. We will keep you posted as to the new date and time.</p>
In addition there are several other emails, mostly sent by Garcetti's campaign that were not returned by Podesta....they probably landed in the "Junk Email" File.

James Lambert Otis: Watch Donald Trumps Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame get destroyed by a real nutbag

My phone started ringing really early on Wednesday from media folks wanting an "official statement" from the Trump Campaign on the destruction of the Presidential candidates Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on Hollywood Boulevard.

First of all....who does this type of crime in the middle of the night...dressed up as a Loa Angeles Department of Transportation worker (neon vest, goggles, and white hard hat, utility belt) on of the most busy streets in America?  A total moron looking for some free publicity.

I hope they find the clown who did this and make him pay for the damages and have him arrested for destroying an American Landmark.  Yep, you see, the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a Historical Landmark that is treasured by more than one billion people who have crossed its path for generations.

This campaign for President has turned ugly, and we still have 12 days to go....

Great report from the LA Daily News.

Check out their coverage.....

RIP Tom Hayden: An American Maverick Who Walked His Own Walk

I have some of the most "diverse" friends from all walks of life.

Tonight I am saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Tom Hayden.

Tom never backed down from his convictions, and regardless of what you thought of him from an outside view, Tom was a kind loving soul. He literally shaped the American political discussion here in America and California in the 1960's, 70's, 80's and till his passing on Sunday.

American is at a cross roads.  We are a nation divided into Blue and Red and Green, and White and Black and Brown and Yellow.

Tom Hayden was a force in California.

Someone who sought change and wasn't afraid of a political fistfight.

Roger Waters Stinks Up Desert Trip with Political Lecture Against Donald Trump, GOP

By Randy Economy
Roger Waters, the main figure behind the legendary rock band Pink Floyd exploded into a political diatribe directly attacking Donald Trump, the Republican Party, and even those in the Middle East during his concert on Sunday night at Desert Trip here in the Coachella Valley.
I get when musicians have a political message.
I get when they use their public persona as a platform.
What I don’t get is why I had to sit and be a victim of Mr. Waters hate speak during a concert that cost me hundreds of dollars to attend.
Politics and music go hand in hand.  I get that.
However, the legendary music that Mr. Waters has produced over my entire lifetime with his band mates with Pink Floyd, need to tone down their hatred for those they do not see eye to eye with and stick to do what they do best, entertain the masses.
80,000 to 90,000 had just watched The Who prior to Pink Floyd taking the stage.  Did Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend get political in their music set? Yes.  They simply asked those attending Desert Trip to “VOTE” and “VOTE your conscience” this November.   That was refreshing.
I also got a horrific case of food poisoning when I attended the concert on Friday night. Yep. Bad street tacos that were priced at $16 for two. My guests flew all the way up from Mexico to attend Desert Trip.  They laughed over the piss poor quality…and beers started at $12 a bottle…
Desert Trip was a trip alright.
 A trip that I will not soon forget.

I hope the organizer can get it right next year.

Desert Trip 2016: $150 Million In Revenue Expected.

Media reports are circulating that the gate revenue for Desert Trip here in the Coachella Valley during the next two weekends will top more than $150 MILLION. This has got to be some sort of a world record. Anyway....I am ready to party. Got the tickets...and checked off the big list....

I cannot wait for next weekend.  Desert Trip has arrived here in the Coachella Valley and I am preparing for this historical weekend at the Empire Polo Fields to see The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney. Roger Waters, The Who, and Bob Dylan and Neil Young.

This will be my FIRST three day concert in years...and my first ever at the legendary Empire Polo Fields.  This magical location hugs the Santa Rosa and San Jacincto Mountain ranges and is nestled in the tranquil enclave of Indio/La Quinta area.

I have tickets for the OPENING WEEKEND....Oct. 7, 8 and 9.

Even though I live just 15 to 20 miles from the concert location (from where the crow flies from the west), the details to actually get to the Empire Polo Fields will be a challenge.  This past weekend, I spent doing a "dry run" to check out the site, the parking locations, security details, as well as what I can actually bring into the concert....and what is off limits....

Parking:  I am actually going to be parking OFF SITE at the Tennis Center in Indian Wells and then taking a shuttle to the Empire Polo Fields.

Looks like I am going to be missing Round 2 of the Presidential Debate on Sunday between Trump and Clinton.  Oh Well.  No worries.  I am watching real history LIVE and in PERSON at Desert Trip...and have the best seat in the house!

'The Crook Label?' Steve Napolitano Slams Rep. Janice Hahn in new You Tube Vid as LA County Supe Race Explodes

Rep. Janice Hahn's campaign for Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has been SLAMMED with a new YOU TUBE VIDEO ATTACK from rival Steve Napolitano. The ad is below and from a political perspective, it does the job in calling Hahn's "integrity issues" into a new dimension. Kudos to Camp Napolitano. Let's see if this makes the airwaves during the last five weeks of this staggering campaign that is now officially on fire. We have campaign finance laws on the books for a reason. Hahn needs to clean up her own political house before she can earn the trust of the voters in November.

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA –  The Steve Napolitano Campaign for 4th District County Supervisor today released an ad denouncing Janice Hahn’s record on committing the largest campaign fundraising violation in Los Angeles County history. 
The ad highlights mounting headlines from prominent television and newspaper stories that cite her nearly $400,000 in illegal campaign contributions that the County Registrar of Voters has ordered her to return.  To date, Hahn has not returned the money, which raises even more questions about whether she is financing her campaign on ill-gotten funds. 
View the ad by clicking here.  The ad ends with “You Deserve Better” and directs viewers to the website — TruthAboutJanceHahn.com — and encourages Tweets to use the hashtag #riggedsystem.

Janice Hahn's Campaign for Supervisor Implodes! LA County Confirms Hahn Campaign's Massive Fundraising Violation; Demands Restitution Be Made Three Weeks Prior to Election Day

Above....Steve Napolitano gave his very first interview about his campaign for Los Angeles County Supervisor last year on my former radio show on AM 870 The Answer (KRLA).  This is the podcast of that show....

Steve Napolitano....

It looks like Congresswoman Janice Hahn has her back against the wall in the last month and a half in her heated campaign against Steve Napolitano for a seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.  

Janice Hahn has always been a political huckster for fat cat union bosses....and LA County Registrar of Recorder Dean Logan is going after her and her campaign full force...

This is what Camp Napolitano said in a media statement today....

"Los Angeles County Registrar Dean Logan confirmed that the Janice Hahn for Supervisor campaign exceeded the $150,000 aggregate limit on campaign contributions from political action committees or PACs and that Congresswoman Hahn must return the excess funds to cure the violation. However, without explanation or authority, Registrar Logan once again extended the deadline for Hahn to cure the violation to Oct. 20, which is well into the final weeks of the campaign," the release stated.
"In establishing yet another new deadline, Logan added 10 days to an existing 30-day extension, which gives Hahn a total of 70 days to pay back the money.  The action by the Registrar to give Hahn 70 days is not authorized under Proposition B, the county’s campaign finance law, which allows only 30 days to return the money.  The Registrar notified the Hahn campaign of a possible violation on August 10 and gave Hahn until Sept. 9 to return the money," Napolitano's campaign claimed in the press releases.

Napolitano campaign also opined.....

"Logan also warned Ms. Hahn that she may have raised additional illegal campaign contributions and advised her to review the amount of money she has raised through political action committee contributions.  This is the largest campaign contribution violation in the history of L.A. County,” said Kevin Wen, Campaign Manager for Steve Napolitano Campaign.  “Yet, the Registrar keeps moving the goal posts back, giving Hahn more and more time to use illegal contributions to operate and promote her campaign instead of having to return them within 30 days of the original notice, as required by law. We think voters deserve to know why Prop B isn't being enforced.”
Also, the Napolitano campaign revealed on Friday that "earlier this month, a political ethics law attorney representing the Napolitano campaign sent a letter to Logan pointing out that Hahn has more accurately collected $573,319 in contributions as of June 30, 2016, a figure that far exceeds the legal limit of $150,000 per election cycle.  Without these extensions, Ms. Hahn could face fines up to three times the amount of illegal campaign contributions she has accepted — or nearly $1.8 million — for her race for LA County Supervisor, according to Proposition B. The law flatly prohibits candidates from soliciting or accepting more than $150,000 for each primary election campaign and $150,000 for each general election campaign, from all political action committees. In addition, Proposition B does not authorize any extension of time to return excessive contributions.  It is designed to reduce the influence of special interest groups that “use their financial strength to attempt to exercise control over candidates and the electoral process.”

Here is my take on the situation....

We have campaign laws here in California to protect the public and voters from corrupt politicians, especially from career politicians like Janice Hahn who only cares about the Hahn Family Dynasty here in Los Angeles County.

Steve Napolitano is one hundred percent on point in his objections to how Janice Hahn has run this campaign.  

This is about power and control of billions of dollars...and who ever wins....needs to be clean as a whistle instead of being propped up by seedy background players who are lurking in the shadows of the Los Angeles County Hall of Administration in Downtown.

Your thoughts?

Don't be fooled folks....

Ryan Lochte, Jimmy Feigen 'Indicted' in Rio? This could become the next "Hangover" Movie Sequel

Lochte, Feigen Coming to a jail cell soon in Brazil!
With US Olympians Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen being indicted by law enforcement officials in Brazil after their drunken fueled rager in Rio a couple of days ago, I can't help but think that this "crime" has all the makings for the plot line for the next "Hangover" movie franchise.

Here is the latest from news reports....

"U.S. swimmers Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen have been indicted for false reporting of a crime, Brazilian news outlet Globo reports.
Brazilian authorities confirmed the report to ABC’s Michael Del Moro.
Lochte, Feigen and two other swimmers initially claimed to have been robbed early Sunday morning in Brazil. After police found no evidence to support their allegations, the swimmers’ story began to unravel, and two of them reportedly admitted to fabricating the robbery.
Lochte and the swimmers instead allegedly vandalized a gas station on Sunday, with the station’s owner telling Globo the swimmers urinated on the walls. While attempting to leave, Lochte and the swimmers were stopped by security.
 Security would eventually pull guns on the swimmers to ensure they would wait until the police arrived, Rio police confirmed Thursday. 
Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medalist, is already back in the United States. "

Here is my take...

You cannot fix stupid, and Olympic athletes here in America have been treated as "God Like Figures" when in all reality they are nothing more than elite snobs who think they are above the law.

I had a lot of respect for Lochte, but today he is a wanted felony suspect.

You cannot go into another country and think that you can play under your own rules and laws.  Nope. 

Lesson learned.

Facebook pits 'Friends' and 'Family' against each other during Campaign 2016

I really enjoy Facebook, but not so much recently.

Love sharing private and special moments with my FB Friends and Family. Great way to keep in touch.  

Love the dog photos and silly videos that capture mankind in the most precarious positions.  Love checking in with my peeps in the world of media to catch their latest reports, radio talk show, print articles and blog posts.

I have 5,000 FB Friends, I am tempted to do some deep housecleaning with some of you folks...

I actually know probably 95 PERCENT of you on my Facebook journey...we have had an incredible "cyber relationship," that has turned into some really solid real life bonds.


For the life of me, I don't understand the "hate wars" that are going on between my friends and family who are on the opposite side in the campaign between Clinton and Trump.  To complicate matters, NOW the Greens and Libertarians have started a new phase of "Campaign Cyber War 2016."

Don't even get me started on the Twitter rants.  Do you know that people are actually determining WHO they are voting for in November just on the Tweets they read?  Seriously?  We are doomed as a Free Democracy.

As an investigative journalist, I have dedicated most of my adult life exposing political corruption.  

I understand a heated political debate.  

I have also had my share of run-ins with the folks inside law enforcement agencies (yep THOSE people) who have not always been happy with me prying into their affairs.  Then their are the mega-powerful political bosses who are in the game the make millions and don't want anyone playing on their turf.

This year, I have noticed that folks are just plain rude, obnoxious, and who are not playing with a full 52-card deck.

I have been called a Nazi, a Racist, Idiot, Stupid Schmuck, Homophobic (seriously, HELLO?) and my favorite, a "traitor" since I decided to register as a REPUBLICAN for God sake just four months ago.

Like my life long friend Diana Cabori likes to tell me..."this SHIT has got to stop," and it does need to stop.

So, the next time you want to pick a fight with me on Facebook, just because I attended the Republican Party Convention in Cleveland as an official California Delegation for Mr. Trump, take a minute and breath, exhale and repeat. 

Clean air is good for one's soul.

Did I say clean air? 
OMG.  I think I just opened up another political can of spam.
Get a grip America.  
Election day is till 100 days ago.

WikiLeaks: Democratic National Committee Coordinated Private Tours at White House for Mega-Donors, Day in and Day Out

Image from Wiki Leaks.
I have been scouring the WikiLeaks email drops...

The Democratic National Committee has direct access on who is given "access" to the sacred halls of power...

The emails also reveal the inner workings of HOW the DNC leaders roll day in and day out.

I stumbled upon several emails...showing how DNC/Obama mega-donors are given the royal treatment...especially when it comes to securing private tours inside the White House, including the West Wing.

Yes, THAT West Wing.  The place where President Obama performs his daily duties as Commander In Chief.

The DNC has turned the White House into a Party House for the past eight years, and every American should be outraged.

According to the emails,  DNC staffers Jordan Kaplan and Scott Comer serve as "contact points" to officials inside the WH to help plan the details of the tours.  Comer is actually the top Financial guy at the DNC, not some low-level chap.  

....so...here is how it really works.  

This below tour request came from Michael Pratt to Kaplan on behalf of the following Obama/DNC supporters: 

Diane Lynn Zientek 
Jennifer Kaye Coleman
Michael Stuart Brown
Michael Mardini 
Robert Cooke
