    ‘Elmo’ Accuser Recants Allegations of Underage Sex With Kevin Clash
    By ALYSSA NEWCOMB (@alyssanewcomb)
    Nov. 13, 2012

    The 23-year-old man who accused Kevin Clash, the man who has been the voice of Elmo on “Sesame Street” for nearly three decades, of having had a sexual relationship with him when he was a minor recanted the allegation today.

    “He wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship,” according to a statement issued by the unidentified man’s representative, Andreozzi & Associates. “He will have no further comment on the matter.”

    Clash said he was relieved to put the “painful allegation” to rest and “will not discuss it further.”

    No charges have been filed.

    Just Gets Better and Better
    Josh Marshall November 13, 2012, 6:16 PM 1657

    So in addition to the thing with the shirtless FBI agent, helping bring down Gen. Petraeus and now maybe Gen. Allen, Jill Kelley also has what appears to be a phony cancer charity.

    But it gets better.

    Kelley also seems to think she has something called “diplomatic inviolability” perhaps tied to her made-up role as “unofficial social liaison”?

    Over the weekend she called 9/11 over the weekend to help chase people off her yard. And this is what she said, according to transcripts of the 9/11 call …

    “You know, I don’t know if by any chance, because I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well,” she told the 911 dispatcher, who agreed to pass the information along to police.

    They also have direct links to Florida’s highest political circles, The Daily Telegraph has learned. Miss Khawam once dated Charlie Crist, the state’s former governor, a Republican source said, while Pam Bondi, its Attorney General and a close ally of Mitt Romney, attended a function at Mrs Kelley’s home.”

    Romney Co-Chair: Voter ID Would Have Won Us Wisconsin
    Ryan J. Reilly November 13, 2012, 6:25 PM 662

    A state senator who served as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s Wisconsin campaign suggested this week that the Republican presidential nominee would have carried the state if a voter ID law had been in place.

    Voter ID “absolutely” would have made a difference in the outcome of the election, state Sen. Alberta Darling (R) told Mike Gousha of WISN on Sunday. She suggested that voter fraud helped President Barack Obama win the state.

    “We’re looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations,” Darling said. “I know people will go, ‘We don’t have fraud and abuse in our elections.’ But why, why can’t we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?”

    However, when the 7NEWS reporter went on the Internet to get an image of the book cover, the reporter mistakenly grabbed a Photoshopped image that said, “All Up In My Snatch.” (View image here.)

    Paula Broadwell’s driver’s license found in area park
    By Clarence Williams

    Law enforcement authorities notified the FBI after a driver’s license belonging to the biographer involved in an affair with former CIA Director David Petraeus was found in a District park on Monday, officials said.

    A jogger discovered the North Carolina state license of Paula Broadwell in Rock Creek Park and later turned the card into Maryland-National Capital Park Police, said Lt. Bill Kellogg, a Park Police spokesman.

    It was not clear to Park Police officials exactly where the license was found or how long it had been missing.

    Many are now questioning how Romney got ZERO votes in some Cleveland precincts. They have never been to Cleveland. I have heard this occured in some precincts in PA but have not read the story.
    anyway thanks Dannie for your hard work! YEA Ohio did it!

    “The vote, incredibly, was unanimous in Obama’s favor in nine Cleveland precincts.

    The largest of those voted 542-0 in favor of Obama. In seven other Cleveland precincts and one in East Cleveland, Romney didn’t pick up a single vote, though votes for third-party candidates stopped the president short of unanimous victories.”

    Klayman: Conservatives will ‘Soon Become the New Niggers’
    Submitted by Brian Tashman on Tuesday, 11/13/2012 12:00 pm

    Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, Klayman warns in his WorldNetDaily column that conservatives who oppose President Obama will “soon become the ‘new niggers,’ relegated to the back of the bus – as the bus speeds away to quickly fall over the fiscal, social and moral cliff,” arguing that they are treated just like African Americans were during Jim Crow. The increasingly delusional Klayman cited his “Citizens Grand Jury” as a way to indict Obama, Vice President Biden, Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Kagan for all their supposed crimes, making sure that America does not “die and go the way of ancient Greece, Rome and other lost civilizations.”more here http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/klayman-conservatives-become-new-niggers

    from The Nation:

    How the GOP’s War on Voting Backfired

    Ari Berman on November 8, 2012 – 1:24 PM ET

    Since the 2010 election, Republicans passed new voting restrictions in more than a dozen states aimed at reducing the turnout of Barack Obama’s “coalition of the ascendant”—young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

    “This is not rocket science,” Bill Clinton said last year. “They are trying to make the 2012 electorate look more like the 2010 electorate than the 2008 electorate.” By pushing voter suppression laws, Republicans wanted the 2012 electorate to be older, whiter and more conservative than the young and diverse 2008 electorate.

    But the GOP’s suppression strategy failed. Ten major restrictive voting laws were blocked in court and turnout among young, black and Hispanic voters increased as a share of the electorate relative to 2008.

    Take a look at Ohio, where Ohio Republicans limited early voting hours as a way to decrease the African-American vote, which made up a majority of early voters in cities like Cleveland and Dayton. Early voting did fall relative to 2008 as a result of Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s cutbacks in early voting days and hours, but the overall share of the black electorate increased from 11 percent in 2008 to 15 percent in 2012. More than anything else, that explains why Barack Obama once again carried the state.

    I spent the weekend before the election in black churches in Cleveland, and there’s no doubt in my mind that the GOP’s push to curtail the rights of black voters made them even more motivated to cast a ballot. “When they went after big mama’s voting rights, they made all of us mad,” said Reverend Tony Minor, Ohio coordinator of the African American Ministers Leadership Council. According to CBS News: “More African-Americans voted in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida than in 2008.”

    The same thing happened with the Latino vote, which increased as a share of the electorate (from 9 percent in 2008 to 10 percent in 2012) and broke even stronger for Obama than in 2008 (from 67-31 in 2008 to 71-27 in 2012, according to CNN exit polling). The share of the Latino vote increased in swing states like Nevada (up 4 percent), Florida (up 3 percent) and Colorado (up 1 percent). Increased turnout and increased support for Obama among Latinos exceeded the margin of victory for the president in these three swing states.

    We’re still waiting on the data to confirm this theory, but a backlash against voter suppression laws could help explain why minority voter turnout increased in 2012. “That’s an extremely reasonable theory to be operating from,” says Matt Barreto, co-founder of Latino Decisions, a Latino-focused polling and research firm. “There were huge organizing efforts in the black, Hispanic and Asian community, more than there would’ve been, as a direct result of the voter suppression efforts.” Groups like the NAACP, National Council of La Raza, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, and the Asian-American Legal Defense Fund worked overtime to make sure their constituencies knew their voting rights.

    I know that we keep on having fun with this ‘scandal’, but underneath, it’s no laughing matter.

    if they weren’t kneedeep in the national security apparatus of this country, I wouldn’t care what these folks were doing.

    but, they ARE kneedeep in the National Security Apparatus of this country…

    and, they set themselves up to be kneedeep in BLACKMAIL.

    I don’t think that’s a laughing matter.

    And, I’m disgusted by those trying to portray either one of these dudes as ‘ ‘victims’ of ‘outdated’ morality.

    this isn’t about MORALITY.

    This is about two men, with their fingers on NATIONAL SECURITY, being wide and open for blackmail…..being wide and open to potentially betray this country…..

    and, THAT is the bottom line that the MSM continued to dance around.

      I hear you but the reality is they will be saved by the media and GOP… These are white males from the military industrial complex. We are getting a preview of the GOP apparratus and it ain’t pretty runs all the way to the lowest FBI agent. We have a rogue agency trying to keep an eye on the Obama admin a nd retain status quo

      • rikyrah

        oh, I agree with you.

        and the no questions to Cantor is also another epic MSM FAIL.

        IF this FBI guy was so concerned, why not go to the SPEAKER of the House, or to Turtle Lips – the Senate Minority Leader?

        why to Cantor?

    – – – -President Barack Obama will enter high-stakes budget negotiations firmly committed to seeing the tax rates for high-income earners rise to pre-George W. Bush levels, he assured a gathering of progressive and labor leaders on Tuesday.

    “I am not going to budge,” he told the group, according to an attendee who relayed material from the meeting on condition of anonymity. “I said in 2010 that I’m going to do this once, and I meant it.”

    – – – -SNIP —

    “It seemed like he meant it,” the first source said. “That suggests that they are ready to go over the ledge.”

    Following the meeting, a handful of attendees spoke briefly to the press, praising Obama for vowing to firmly oppose an extension of the tax cuts for the wealthy.

    “It was a very, very positive meeting,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “We’re very committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don’t end up paying the tab for a party that we didn’t get to go to, and the president is committed to that as well.”

    “The president was really standing firm on taxes,” said Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress. “Everyone in the room talked about how much they have the president’s back in this fight.”

    I just snatched somebody completely bald on FB. A white FB friend of one of my FB friends (black) was explaining why it was all Obama’s fault and why we needed to secede from the the US. When people questioned why nobody was trying to secede under Bush, this person started blaming Obama. When they questioned why this individual was blaming Obama but not Bush, this person started up with the “y’all/you people/ghetto” business.

    This is where the wig snatching commences: I believe this person was involved in terrorizing a black family 25 years ago. The name was familiar. When I questioned whether this FB individual was the same person responsible for terrorizing this family, they tried to deny it. But they kept threatening on FB. When I busted out a link, they threatened me and bragged about this family having to move out of their neighborhood, doing the whole stereotypical “you black & ignorant” thing. Then other people started chiming in with, “I remember that incident.”

    When the other people started chiming in that’s when this person went ghost on the thread. I have no doubt this individual was indeed the same person who terrorized that family 25 years ago. I only hope the black FB friend defriends this racist’s ass (even if that person WASN’T the same individual they were very racist on that thread).

    – –Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) offered his take on the fiscal cliff in a floor speech Tuesday, calling on the House to take up the Senate-passed bill to avert tax hikes on middle incomes.

    An excerpt from Reid’s speech:

    “In fact, we could avert the fiscal cliff for 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses today. The House must only consider the Senate-passed bill freezing tax rates for those making less than $250,000 a year.

    “This Congress is but one vote away from avoiding the fiscal cliff for middle class families and small businesses.

    – —It’s not turning out to be a good week for a number of America’s top generals.

    Following the resignation of retired Army Gen. David Petraeus’ as CIA director because of an extramarital affair and the revelation that Marine Gen. John Allen is being investigated for improper communications with a woman, another four-star general is also in the news for the wrong reasons.

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has reportedly demoted the former head of U.S. Africa Command, who was accused of spending thousands of dollars on lavish travel and other unauthorized expenses.

    Scroll down for video

    A senior U.S. official says Panetta has stripped Gen. William ‘Kip’ Ward of a star, which means that he must now retire as a three-star lieutenant general. Ward must also repay the government $82,000.

    The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn’t authorized to discuss a personnel matter.

    Ward’s excessive and unauthorized spending were documented in a 99-page report which gave a startling insight into his plush lifestyle at the expense of taxpayers.

      Maybe Gen. Ward’s stars didn’t twinkle “media general” status as he drove around in a puny 5 car motorcade unlike precedence setting Petreaus’ 28 car mortorcade?
      Maybe his entourage wasn’t large enough or he just failed to include enough “unofficial liaisons”?
      Maybe he forgot to get Jessia “GI Jane” Lynch author to ghostwrite his bio?
      Maybe he didn’t allow enough Washington D.C. defense ‘think tanks’ to unofficially control his command?
      Maybe because black generals are held to a different standard?

    – – – -President Obama Marks Diwali- – – –

    – — -Today, President Obama wished a Happy Diwali to the Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Buddhists celebrating the holiday here at home and around the world.

    Diwali is a time for gathering with family and friends, often marked with good food and dancing. It is also a time for prayer and reflection about those less fortunate. It is a testament to the compassion of these communities that so many of them have helped those that have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

    Many who observe this holiday will light the Diya, or lamp, which symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. As that lamp is lit, we should all recommit ourselves to bring light to any place still facing darkness. Earlier this year, we were reminded of the evil that exists in the world when a gunman walked into the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and opened fire. In the wake of that horrible tragedy, we saw the resilience of a community that drew strength from their faith and a sense of solidarity with their neighbors, Sikh and non-Sikh alike. We also saw compassion and love, in the heroic actions of the first responders and the outpouring of support from people across the country. Out of a day of sadness, we were reminded that the beauty of America remains our diversity, and our right to religious freedom.

    In 2010, during an official visit to India, President Obama and the First Lady marked Diwali by participating in a candle lighting and performance at Holy Name High School in Mumbai.

    In 2009, President Obama became the first president to participate in Diwali celebrations at the White House.

    – – -Support For Repealing Obamacare Plunges To An All-Time Low – —

    —- -Now that President Obama has been elected to a second term, political opponents of his landmark health care reform law are beginning to concede that Obamacare is here to stay. And the general public agrees.

    As a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll reports, the majority of Americans don’t support repealing Obamacare. In fact, after the presidential election, the number of Americans advocating for a full repeal of the health reform law dropped to an all-time low at just 33 percent — compared to nearly half of Americans who would rather keep the law in place:
    – – –SNIP – —

    THIS – –>The declining support for repealing the health law is a blow to the anti-Obamacare candidates who poured over $20 million into advertisements attacking the Affordable Care Act during the 2012 election cycle. On the other hand, at least six candidates in tight races across the country won last week after advocating for the health reform law throughout their campaigns.
