Can you imagine this vapid bimbo Carrie Prejean? She is so full of herself that she thought that she could simply dismiss what that idiot Perez Hilton said as a loaded question. She sat about telling all who would listen that she was a good Christian that frowned on same sex marriage. Meanwhile, she is a closet porn star! It just doesn’t get any better than this. Oh well, I tried to defend her but her lies have come back to bite me. Thinking back, she seems to pretend that she had forgotten about making these tapes in the first place. Not only an idiot, but a lying idiot. My humblest apologies for ever trusting the empty headed bimbo. JD
Making the talk show circuit this week to peddle her newly released book, Still Standing, former Miss California Carrie Prejean has called her recently revealed sex tape the “biggest mistake of her life.” But now according to an exclusive report on RadarOnline.com, the religious beauty queen has apparently made the same mistake seven other times.
The website has uncovered seven more solo sex tapes and 30 more nude photos – most taken by Carrie using her reflection in a mirror. Carrie is said to touch her body in an alluring manner and can be heard moaning on the tapes.
In her new book Prejean wrote, “God gave us our bodies, and it’s perfectly right that we use them in ways where we can give glory to God by making our bodies, our temples of the Holy Spirit, strong and fast.”
Prejean, who was stripped of her crown, sued the California USA pageant claiming they dethroned her because of her religious beliefs. TMZ.com reported that Prejean quickly retracted the million-dollar lawsuit after the first sex tape was revealed during a meeting with attorneys last week.
In a statement following Prejean’s bizarre appearance on Larry King Live, Keith Lewis, the executive director of the Miss California organization said, “The public is finally getting a glimpse of the real Carrie Prejean who lives in her own delusional world.” Lewis added, “I sincerely hope she is able to get the psychological help I believe she has shown to clearly need.”
The 22-year-old Prejean attained celebrity status among conservative Christians and has become an outspoken advocate against gay marriage.
Barack O’Blunder strikes again! How many times will this nimrod of a president embarrass the United States of America with his inability to understand foreign protocols? Heads of state do not bow to heads of state. We saw this back in February when Obama bowed to King Abullah of Saudi Arabia in a rather embarrassing colossal blunder.
This photo will go viral before the end of today. I can’t wait to hear what the liberal excuse machine that we call the American media will come up with to try to explain this one away. Here are a few that might work. Lets see, um . . . Obama dropped a nickel! Obama had a severe pain in his back and was hoping the emperor would offer one of his Geisha girls to walk on his back like in those old John Wayne movies! Obama was asking about acupuncture! Obama thought his shoe was untied! Obama was asking about the granite tiles in the floor! Obama had gas! The list of possibilities is endless.
Lets face it. Obama is a moron squared. He does not understand simple things like presidential protocol, but we want him to write health care legislation. Er . . . . Duh . . . JD
How low will the new American president go for the world’s royalty?
This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.
To some in the United States, however, an upright handshake might have looked better. Remember Michelle Obama casually patting Britain’s Queen Elizabeth on the back during their Buckingham Palace visit? America’s royalty tends to make movies and get bad reviews and lots of money as a sign of respect.
Obama could receive some frowns back home as he did for his not-quite-this-low-or-maybe-about-the-same-bow to the Saudi king not so long ago. (See photo here)
Akihito, who turns 76 next month, is the eldest son and fifth child of Emperor Showa, the name given to an emperor and his reign after his death.
Emperor Showa is better known abroad by the life name of Hirohito. He became emperor in 1925 and died in 1989, the longest historically-known rule of the nation’s 125 emperors.
Hirohito presided over his nation’s growth from an undeveloped agrarian economy into the expansionist military power and ally of Nazi Germany of the 1930′s.
And, later, Japan became a global economic giant. Hirohito, along with Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, who authorized the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, were much reviled abroad during World War II.
Historically, debate has simmered over how much of a political puppet Hirohito was to the country’s military before and during the war.
Even after Democrat President Harry Truman ordered the two atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the summer of 1945, there were strong forces within Japan that wanted to continue to fight the Americans in the spirit of kamikaze suicide pilots.
But Akihito’s father went on national radio, the first time his subjects had ever heard Hirohito’s voice, and without using the inflammatory word “surrender,” pronounced that the country must “accept the unacceptable.” It did.
As the conquering Allied general and then presiding officer of the U.S. occupation, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, decided to allow Japan to keep its emperor as a ceremonial unifying institution within a nascent democracy.
Tojo, on the other hand, was hanged.
MacArthur treated Emperor Hirohito respectfully but, as his body language in this black and white postwar photo demonstrates, was not particularly deferential.
(But then MacArthur was not known as a particularly deferential person, as Truman discovered just before firing him later. But that’s another war.)
Akihito was born during Japan’s conquering of China and was evacuated during the devastating American fire-bombing of Tokyo, which was built largely of wood in those days.
The future emperor learned English during the U.S. occupation, but, inexplicably, his father ordered that his oldest boy not receive an Army commission as previous imperial heirs always had.
Akihito assumed the throne on Jan. 7, 1989. Within weeks he began a series of formal expressions of remorse to Asian countries for Japan’s actions during his father’s reign. In 2003, he underwent surgery for prostate cancer.
In 1959, Akihito married Michiko Shoda, the first commoner allowed to enter the Japanese royal family. That was two years before the birth of Akihito’s future presidential guest, Barack Obama.
Joe Biden was already 17 by then. But he wasn’t a senator.
Gee, a black congressman from Louisiana corrupt and taking bribes? No way! He was framed. Wasn’t this the same guy that was trying to get the military to fly him to his house in a helicopter a day or two after hurricane Katrina to “retrieve some important papers?” I remember this fool. Jefferson was pissed because the military, stretched to its limits because of a little thing call A HURRICANE, and no one could understand why he was so desperate to get back to his house. I have some news for the rest of America. You can try to put the blame on GW Bush for the levees breaking, but the fact is that all politicians, black, white or purple, are corrupt in Louisiana. JD
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Prosecutors called a former Louisiana congressman’s corruption the most extensive in the history of Congress. His punishment delivered a similar message.
William Jefferson, who famously hid $90,000 cash in his freezer, was sentenced Friday to 13 years in prison for taking bribes, the longest term ever imposed on a congressman for bribery charges.
The Democrat who represented parts of New Orleans for nearly 20 years was convicted in August of taking about $500,000 in bribes and seeking millions more in exchange for using his influence to broker business deals in Africa.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III said public corruption was “a cancer on the body politic.”
“There must be some sort of greed virus that attacks those in power,” said Ellis, who lamented that so many other congressmen have been convicted on similar charges.
But the other punishments weren’t quite as severe. For example, former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, R-Calif., was sentenced to more than eight years in prison after pleading guilty in 2005 to taking $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors. Former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for taking bribes from lobbyist Jack Abramoff, and ex-Rep. James Traficant, D-Ohio, served a 7-year sentence after being convicted in a 2002 trial of bribery and racketeering.
Defense attorneys were counting on those cases when they asked for less than 10 years; prosecutors wanted Jefferson to serve 27 years.
“His activity represented the most extensive and pervasive pattern of corruption in the history of Congress,” prosecutor Mark Lytle said.
Jefferson said nothing. His attorney advised him not to speak because he is appealing his conviction.
Jefferson was allowed to remain free until a hearing next week. Prosecutors want him to begin serving his sentence immediately, while the defense wants Jefferson to remain free while he appeals his conviction.
Jefferson was also ordered to forfeit roughly $470,000 in bribery proceeds — the government expects to seize Jefferson’s retirement savings and other assets to enforce the judgment. Jefferson, meanwhile, has filed for bankruptcy protection and his wife is claiming rights to some of those assets.
Jefferson was convicted in August of 11 counts, including bribery and racketeering, and acquitted on five others, including the one most closely associated with the money in his freezer.
The investigation started in March 2005. In August of that year, FBI agents searched Jefferson’s Washington home and found the cash. Prosecutors said he had planned to use the money to pay a bribe to the then-vice president of Nigeria to secure a multimillion-dollar telecommunications deal there, an accusation Jefferson denied.
The money ended up in the freezer when a disgruntled businesswoman, Lori Mody, agreed to wear a wire after telling the FBI she had been cheated out of $3.5 million in deals brokered by Jefferson. The jury saw videotape of Mody handing over a suitcase filled with $100,000 cash outside an Arlington hotel. Most of that money was recovered from the freezer.
The defense argued that Jefferson was acting as a private business consultant in brokering the deals and his actions did not constitute bribery.
New Orleans voters had long been loyal to Jefferson, who in 1991 became Louisiana’s first African-American congressman since Reconstruction. He rose from the poverty of the Louisiana Delta parishes to prominence as a street-savvy political tactician.
He was re-elected in 2006 even after news of the bribery scandal broke but was indicted and then lost to Republican attorney Anh “Joseph” Cao about a year ago.
Several residents of Jefferson’s former district said the sentence was just.
“I think it’s sufficient considering his age,” said Songy Turner, 56, of Marrero, La., a New Orleans suburb. “I’m really hoping that the newer politicians, the younger politicians, really consider being honest, really take their job seriously and make an effort to make Louisiana honest.”
Cristian Boise, 41, of New Orleans, said 13 years wasn’t enough for Jefferson’s actions, which may have hurt the state’s recovery from Hurricane Katrina.
“He abused the public trust,” Boise said. “He hindered our recovery efforts, and he really did this city a lot of harm at a time when it needed help.”
