    U.S. attorney general says banks may face criminal cases soon
    Mon May 5, 2014 9:45pm IST
    By Aruna Viswanatha

    May 5 (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department is pursuing criminal investigations of financial institutions that could result in action in the coming weeks and months, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in a video, adding that no company was “too big to jail.”

    The comments, made in a video posted on the Justice Department’s website on Monday, came as federal prosecutors push two banks, BNP Paribas SA and Credit Suisse AG , to plead guilty to criminal charges to resolve investigations into sanctions and tax violations, respectively, according to people familiar with the probes.

    While Holder did not name any banks, he said he is personally monitoring the ongoing investigations into financial institutions and is “resolved to seeing them through.”

    A child is dead because grown-ups failed to act their age: Mitchell
    By MARY MITCHELL May 2, 2014 6:54PM
    Updated: May 4, 2014 2:35AM

    Every homicide, especially one involving a young person, is heartbreaking.

    ……

    Police officials have rounded up five people who they allege had contact with that gun before the unnamed juvenile fired the fatal shot.

    Among those charged was the suspect’s uncle, Donnell Flora, a 25-year-old man in a wheelchair who, police allege, took a bus to bring his niece a .38-caliber revolver.

    He was charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.

    Also charged with having a direct involvement in this case was Vandetta Redwood, the 32-year-old aunt of the 14-year-old suspect.

    Police allege Redwood knew that the confrontation could have turned deadly and did nothing to stop it.

    Other charges in this case relate to individuals who had some contact with the weapon, including a 17-year-old accused of trying to hide the gun.

    Robert James, 34, is accused of illegally selling a firearm and filing a false police report when he reported the gun stolen. Floyd Evans, 43, identified by law enforcement as the buyer, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm.

    What stands out most in this tragedy is the number of adults who either contributed to this crime or had some personal involvement in it.

    Had just one of these adults chosen to do what was right, Endia would be alive today.

      • rikyrah

        Alma,
        Like Mitchell, I have been stunned at the NUMBER of adults that were completely TRIFLING.
        I can’t imagine the UNCLE giving that CHILD a gun.
        I have two nieces and nephews…and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES would I be giving a FOURTEEN YEAR OLD A FUCKING GUN!

        • Alma98

          My husband and I couldn’t believe the stupidity of these people. They all must be as immature as the 14yr old, smh.

    Medicaid expansion is the final battle in war over Obamacare

    By Michael Hiltzik The Economy Hub
    May 4, 2014, 5:00 a.m.

    The final battles of any war often are the bloodiest. They’re waged by the last holdouts, dead-enders desperate to prove to themselves and their dwindling followers that their efforts were not in vain.

    The final battle of the war over the Affordable Care Act is being waged today over expanding Medicaid. As the act was originally conceived, Medicaid would provide healthcare for more than 10 million of the poorest uninsured Americans, most of them childless adults with earnings up to 138% of the federal poverty level. (This year, that income ceiling is about $16,000.)…

    ‘Dreamers’ see double standard in Brewer’s license ban
    Gov. Jan Brewer refuses to acknowledge President Barack Obama’s executive order
    May 5, 2014

    Gov. Jan Brewer made sure that undocumented immigrants who are allowed to stay in the country through President Barack Obama’s deferred-action program can’t get driver’s licenses in Arizona.

    But The Arizona Republic found that undocumented immigrants whom the government is actively trying to deport have been able to obtain Arizona driver’s licenses in the 20 months since Brewer’s executive order. That number could potentially be in the thousands.

    The upshot is that for undocumented immigrants in Arizona, getting a driver’s license is possible when the government is actively trying to deport you, but impossible if you receive permission to stay through Obama’s program.

    Alan Salinas has experienced that paradox firsthand.

    In 2010, Salinas was able to get an Arizona driver’s license while the government was trying to deport him for being in the country illegally.

    Then last month, Salinas was approved for Obama’s deferred-action program, which allows young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children to stay temporarily in the U.S. and get work permits without the threat of deportation.

    But now Salinas, whose initial, short-term license expired, cannot get a new one.

    Why There Is No Cure for the GOP’s Benghazi Fever

    The latest outbreak of Benghazi-mania on the right shows the virus is only growing more resistant to reason.
    By David Corn Fri May. 2, 2014 11:51 AM PDT

    The current outbreak of Benghazi Fever shows how strong the virus is—and that it is apparently immune to basic remedy.

    On Friday, the Republicans went full Benghazi. House Speaker John Boehner announced he was setting up a special House committee to investigate the attack—that is, the Obama White House’s response to it. Meanwhile, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chair of the House government oversight committee, subpoenaed Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before his committee on May 21 about the State Department’s handling of GOP congressional inquiries about Benghazi. (Apparently, Issa is now probing a supposed cover-up of the original supposed cover-up.)

    Steny Hoyer urges Dems to oppose Lois Lerner contempt
    By LAUREN FRENCH | 5/5/14 2:00 PM EDT

    House Democratic leaders are urging their members to vote against holding former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner in contempt, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said on Monday.

    The Maryland Democrat said leadership would oppose the contempt vote, which is scheduled to reach the House floor this week, on grounds that it is “political messaging.”

    Lerner, who retired from the IRS last fall, was responsible for the agency division that targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny as they sought a tax exemption. She has repeatedly refused to answer questions from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s panel, prompting the contempt vote.

    Here’s a new meme that’s popping up:

    Teens Blame Michelle Obama for Their ‘Nasty’ Tater Tot-Free Lunches

    Caitlin Tagner, a high school sophomore from North Carolina, is very clear about who she blames for her school’s “nasty” lunches: “I blame Michelle Obama.” It’s great that schools are trying to make lunches better, they’re not doing a very good job of it. “Starving kids at school isn’t exactly a way to (get) kids’ obesity down,” Tagner added. “I feel like it’s just been taken too far.” On Monday, the Associated Press reported that some school nutrition directors want the Department of Agriculture of loosen up the new-ish lunch requirements so students will stop throwing away their food.

    Anthony Gallimore, a high school senior from Georgia, was more willing to acknowledge others might be at fault. “It’s gotta be a combination of Michelle and the servers at the school. No one person could take all the blame,” he DM’d The Wire. “Though, the servers are probably just doing what they’re told.”

    At Gallimore’s school, most people “put up with” the lunch, but several have started bringing their own. “Health-wise, I’d say it’s an illusion of benefit. The food even LOOKED more presentable before,” he wrote. “And if nobody chooses to eat the gross food, then it can’t possibly be helping anyone. It’s just being thrown out anyway.”

      I mean, this exchange here:

      Justice said that while the food is a little bit healthier, “I am in athletics and every day I am hungry by the end of school.”

    Students brace for Cinco de Mayo protest at Morgan Hill school
    Posted: 7:50 a.m. Monday, May 5, 2014

    MORGAN HILL, Calif. — American flag waving demonstrators stood in front of Morgan Hill’s Live Oak High School Monday, staging a Cinco de Mayo protest that many students say is an unwelcomed interruption to their school day.

    It was four years ago that the high school drew national media attention after several students wearing American flag T-shirts during a Cinco de Mayo celebration were sent home.

    There was a heavy police presence at the school Monday “to ensure that our community remains safe and our local groups are free to exercise their constitutional rights to free speech.”

    Meanwhile, a temporary fence has been erected around the school’s campus to keep the demonstrators away from the main building. The students have also attached a large banner to it with green and gold handprints on it with the phrase “United at the roots, we are all different branches of the same tree.”

    Sober woman arrested for DUI after WI deputy causes crash, breaking her neck

    By Travis Gettys
    Monday, May 5, 2014 9:18 EDT

    A Wisconsin woman lived for months with drunken driving charges hanging over her head after a sheriff’s deputy crashed into her car, although blood tests show she was sober and surveillance video shows the officer was at fault.

    Tanya Weyker broke her neck in the Feb. 20, 2013, crash after Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Quiles rolled through a stop sign and wrecked into her vehicle, reported WTKR-TV.

    She was hurt so badly she couldn’t submit to a Breathalyzer test or perform field sobriety tests, but she said deputies questioned her as she received medical treatment at the crash scene.
    ………………

    Weyker is still waiting for the county to pay her medical bills, which she said could be more than $1 million, but state law caps claims against government agencies at $250,000.

    She has filed a separate complaint against the deputy who arrested her in what could be the precursor to a civil rights lawsuit against Milwaukee County – which would not be subject to a cap on damages.

    — – -Gabourey Sidibe wows crowd with moving speech on confidence

    – – – – -Gabourey Sidibide has proven that she is talented – and tough.
    Ever since her breakout role in the 2009 film Precious, the 30-year-old actress has been the victim of snide remarks attacking and criticizing both her style and physique.

    However, Sidibe is not phased by the critics and instead, she’s constantly upheld a great level of esteem and confidence.

    In a moving speech she delivered on Thursday at the Ms. Foundation Women Of Vision Gala in New York City, Sidibe opened up about how she’s tackled the negative comments she received and how she feels when people ask how she’s able to remain so confident.

    “One of the first things people usually ask me is, ‘Gabourey, how are
    you so confident?’ I hate that,” she said. “I always wonder if that’s
    the first thing they ask Rihanna when they meet her. ‘RiRi! How are you so confident?’ Nope. No. No. But me? They ask me with that same incredulous disbelief every single time.
    ‘You seem so confident! How is that?’”

    Sidibe shed light on some of her personal thoughts and in doing so, she discussed some of the rude and hurtful comments she’s received.

      You know what? I might get ripped up for this and I don’t know Gabourey from Adam’s house cat, but I can’t help thinking that yes, Gabourey is strong, has endured a lot and most of the taunts had to do with her weight. She is a beautiful, smart, confident black woman. She is also morbidly obese. There is no getting around that.

      I’ve got some issues with Dr. Ian Smith, but something I heard him say stuck with me. “At the end of the day, what the scales says matters. If you are overweight, all of your body systems are working harder than they should to keep you alive. ” And my friend says “Look around, you don’t see a whole bunch of obese 70 year olds.”

      If feel like, in many ways, maybe she feels like she will give in to the hateful people who said mean things to her if she loses weight. She doesn’t seem to think that being her size is not good for her health. I’m sorry that people hurt her feelings, but at the end of the day, regardless of what they did or said to her, she is morbidly obese. And she is the only one who can change that.

    Ariz. Teacher Sues High School for Racial Discrimination

    Cicely Cobb says she has been subject to bullying from students and administrators alike due to her race.
    BY: BREANNA EDWARDS
    Posted: May 5 2014 3:04 PM

    English teacher Cicely Cobb says she has been tormented by students and administrators at Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee, Ariz., because of her race, and that the matter has escalated since she filed a lawsuit against the school and the Tempe Union High School District in February, the Raw Story reports.

    Students brazenly disrespect her to her face, Cobb charges, including in a video posted to YouTube that shows students hitting her on the head with pieces of paper as she tries to back away and raises her hand to deflect them.

    But the worst of the bullying takes place online, Raw Story reports.

    “Regardless of my talents I am still the black person that it’s OK to make fun of,” Cobb told news station KPHO.

    Students mock her on Twitter telling her to sign up for an all-black dating site, as well as implying that she is a prostitute, among other horrifying offenses, the educator says. One photo that was posted of her was almost minstrel-like in appearance and spoke to a negative time in the nation’s racial history, Cobb told KPHO.

    Fox News Will Only Show White House Presser If Benghazi Is Discussed (VIDEO)
    TOM KLUDT – MAY 5, 2014, 2:08 PM EDT

    Say this much for Fox News: its hosts have been pretty transparent about the outlet’s editorial standards.

    It happened again on Monday, when Fox anchor Jon Scott promised to cover a White House presser if and only if the topic shifted to a House select committee on Benghazi, which will be headed up by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

    With White House aide John Podesta delivering a presentation on energy and climate during the press briefing, Scott couldn’t hide his shock.

    “Jay Carney is normally at this podium. This is one of his understudies, you might say,” Scott said referring to Podesta, who is not actually one of Carney’s understudies.

          • Miranda

            School me. I know you understand the themes…what’s the story behind “Charles James and white tie”?

          • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

            Charles James was known for his ball gowns which were formal, yet sexy. His designs were like pieces of art.

            The gown Karolina Kurkova wore is the epitome of the Charles James esthetic (for some reason, Disqus won’t let me past the link to the gown).

            White tie is super, duper formal wear.

    But you wouldn’t know this by watching mainstream media outlets. Time and time again, the media has painted black men in a negative light. Almost every night, you can turn on the television and watch a news story about a black man shooting or robbing someone.

    This was the subject of DCTV’s 25th anniversary panel: “Changing Coverage of Black Males in the Media” coordinated by DCTV’s President Nantz Rickard and Executive Vice President Bob Thomas, alongside their outstanding production crew. Bringing together such an impressive and highly accomplished panel, DCTV ignited a firestorm of new thinking about the neglected recognizable achievements of many black Americans across our nation.

    Last week, I had the privilege of moderating a panel that included filmmaker, producer and director of “What Black Men Think” Janks Morton; New York Times and CNN contributor Jamal Simmons; and EZ Street of radio station WKYS, FM93.9.

    “If it bleeds it leads” remarked Mr. Morton during our discussion. The media has an obsession with reporting on violent, specifically black, crime. Instead of focusing on the positive developments of the black community,. .

The puck flew through a maze of players and passed Boston’s star goalie Tuukaa Rask for the winning goal.

    The victorious Canadians gathered around P.K and gave him the usually team congratulatory salute.Then it got ugly in Boston Gardens.

    Fox’s Benghazi Obsession Even Extends To The Weather
    1 hour and 26 minutes ago

    Fox News’ Dana Perino demonstrated her network’s habit of using any story to invoke Benghazi by daring meteorologists who are scheduled to meet with President Obama to ask him about the attack.

    On the final segment of The Five, Perino discussed an upcoming event in which national and local TV meteorologists will speak with Obama about climate change issues after the release of the 2014 National Climate Assessment. Perino used the opportunity to reference the Benghazi attacks, saying: “Tomorrow, President Obama is going to do interviews with meteorologists all across the country about a new climate change report. … I hope they ask him about Benghazi. Like the weatherman from Montana should ask him about Benghazi, that would be great. I dare you.”

      Wow. I love this dress. Now this is what
      the fashion industry needs to move toward.
      I just love this.

    • AxelFoley

      Hmm…looks like she’s wearing an umbrella. The best looking dress at this MetGala, doe.

      • qosine

        Umbrella — lol

    I’m going back and forth between Met and Ari Melber on LOD.
    He’s been dismissing every pro-GOP point from the likes of
    former Palin campaign manager to Ezra to the Klan/Rand Paul doc
    in NC (who claims the 2nd Amend. is to 1) ind protection and 2) for the
    States against eh Fed

      i saw your comment about Ezra below…always trying to sneak push off right wing talking points.

            One person on twitter said “and then there’s Maude”…………….I fell out! LMAO

          • Alma98

            YES YES YES! It’s definitely Maude lol.

    • lamh36

      she should invest in a bra with undewire lifts. If you are gonna wear a dress with a slit that shows your tits, then you’d better damn sure make sure those teets are perky and alert, or use illusion garments to make them seem so

    • crazycanuck

      Gyllenhaal? really? she looks so old here.

  • AxelFoley

    Aiight, so this MetGala thing is an excuse to dress like some Club Kids from the 1990s, huh?

  • goldenstar

    Ari showed the SNL slave skit. Ai!!!!! It’s horrible…to a white audience??? And Leslie’s response is poor. Who is Jackie Fabulous? She is defending her, too. PULEEZ

    • Alma98

      Jones handled the whole thing wrong. She starting calling black folks stupid and idiots.

      • goldenstar

        She’s saying that if JayZ or Chris Rock did this, it would be considered brilliant. NO. This is less about slavery and more about the Black body and how it is viewed: as some huge hyper-sexualized being. NO.

        • Alma98

          So she’s trying to make this about sexism? She messed up period.

          • goldenstar

            Yep. And that Jackie Fabulous misses the point. They need to read bell hooks and Frantz Fanon. Lord.

          • Alma98

            This is why I didn’t care if they had a black woman on the show. I knew they’d use her to make fun of black women.

        • qosine

          I hadn’t seen this longer clip before, and I
          noticed that part about the plantation teams, which might have been her real point? She
          started out asking who that guy would pick.
          Sterling’s past exec said he talked about
          “hiring poor black players from the south.”
          But her set up was ALL wrong either way.
          Plantation teams where owners pick slaves
          would have called out the racist sports system
          Am I way out here?

          • goldenstar

            Her point is unclear. Her analogy that the slave owner would have picked the guy for her is not quite how it worked. The plantation system designed a system where women were assaulted and there was license to assault. WTF is she talking about? And, it’s not about beauty or being chosen. It’s about breeding. It’s about property. I’m getting really pissed.

          • qosine

            Yeah, I’m pissed too, goldenstar. Yeah, tying in rape and assault to comedy killed it. Plus, her way, plays up
            1) NOT chosen for rape by white owner — like Lupita would; condemns her beauty) but
            2) chosen (for breeding with other slaves) but
            she has famous players who have to consider
            what plantation?
            The whole thing is one f5r*up.

  • crazycanuck

    I feel so bloated lol, and after a second look, I like Lupita’s dress.

    • Miranda

      The more I look at it, the more I like it too..but I think its her smile and her completely perfect brown skin up against the emerald green.

      • crazycanuck

        Yup, I have seen it from various angles. It looks great!

      • qosine

        Yes, yes.
        Plus she looks so fun, so bright.
        Great look too for movie casting.
        Her shoes have a kind of Oz red slippers
        fantasy look too.

    • Miranda

      She really can’t clean up at all. That’s unfortunate.

      • Alma98

        No she cannot.

      • rikyrah

        This is so true. She just can’t.

    • lamh36

      I agree with the uncles TLo.

      The problem with Lena D isn’t her body or even her unattractiveness, it’s that she flaunts herself as a feminist who doesn’t challenging body shaming and what not and claims she doesn’t care about fashion, and yet she continually dresses or attempts to dress as someone who actually does care abour fashion, she’s just too much of a poser to just hire a damn stylist.

      • qosine

        Bingo
        She always looks so, well, grubby.
        Weird.

    So I’m sitting here watching Step by Step, ya know that shows from 90’s with Suzanne Summers and Patrick Duffy. I was like I wonder what happened to the to other cast members. Aside from the 2 leads, majority of the young cast are no longer working in Hollywood. The most dramatic transfermation though is the dude who palyed the dum guy…I Would never even recognize him today.

    up steam for a while. Last week, CBS News’ Bob Schieffer reported that Romney would consider running again in 2016 if Jeb Bush doesn’t run. On tax day, Josh Romney tweeted a picture of his Dad standing
    in line at the post office to “pay his taxes.” Then there is the fact
    that Mitt Romney continues to pop up on television with regularity, and
