Saudi TV Blurs Michelle Obama’s Face at Meeting With King

The Saudi state television station apparently blurred out the image of U.S. first lady Michelle Obama in the broadcast of her and President Barack Obama’s meeting with new Saudi King Salman today in Riyadh.

The new king shook hands with President Obama at the Erga Palace but didn’t acknowledge the first lady at all during a very brief meeting on the side of the funeral for King Abdullah. Barack and Michelle Obama cut short their trip to India to attend the funeral. Other news organizations, such as Al Jazeera, showed the meeting without obscuring Michelle Obama’s face.

Charlie Hebdo Returns With Prophet Muhammad On Its Cover

BN529 Just one week after Islamist gunmen slaughtered 12 people in an attack on its offices, the weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo returned to newsstands across France on Wednesday with a depiction of the Prophet Muhammad on its cover.

In some places, vendors reported that it had sold out before daybreak, and demand was so intense that copies of the newspaper were being offered on eBay for hundreds of dollars.

The frenzy offered a vivid backdrop to the sharpening debate between proponents of press freedom and defenders of religious proprieties that has seized France as it reels from the shock of three days of attacks last week in which 17 people were killed by Islamic extremists.

The onslaught has left the French authorities struggling to find ways to confront an unfamiliar form of terrorism, by lone militants or groups that are difficult to detect.

Bill Cosby’s Sexual Assault Claims

cos1A firestorm of controversy surrounds comedian Bill Cosby after multiple allegations have surfaced claiming that he sexually assaulted numerous women, with alleged incidents dating as far back as 1969. Cosby has never been charged in any criminal case regarding any of these accusations.

Kristina Ruehli
Year of Alleged Incident: 1965

Ruehli, now 71, claimed in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine that Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was a 22-year-old secretary at a talent agency.

Ruehli alleges that Cosby invited her to a party at his home, but when she got there she was the only guest. Ruehli went on to claim that she had a cocktail with Cosby and suddenly passed out. Ruehli further alleges that when she came to, she was in Cosby’s bed and he allegedly tried to force her to perform oral sex on him.

Carla Ferrigno
Year of Alleged Incident: 1967

According to actress Carla Ferrigno – wife of The Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno, although the two were not married at the time – she had allegedly been invited on a double date with Cosby and his wife. Carla claims that both couples went to Cosby’s home and were shooting pool in the basement. She goes on to allege that at one point, she and Cosby ended up alone together, and that he allegedly pulled her close and kissed her roughly as she tried to fight him off.

Joan Tarshis
Year of Alleged Incident: 1969

Tarshis went public in Nov. 2014 with allegations that Bill Cosby had raped her in 1969 (the same year he made jokes about spiking women’s drinks with drugs) when she was a 19-year-old comedy writer. She said Cosby invited her to help Continue reading

Charlie Hebdo: Gun attack on French magazine kills 12


Gunmen have shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in an apparent militant Islamist attack.

Four of the magazine’s well-known cartoonists, including its editor, were among those killed, as well as two police officers.

A major police operation is under way to find three gunmen who fled by car.

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier, 47, had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection.

French media have named the three other cartoonists killed in the attack as Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski, as well as Charlie Hebdo contributor and French economist Bernard Maris.

The attack took place during the magazine’s daily editorial meeting.

At least four people were critically wounded in the attack.

President Francois Hollande said there was no doubt it had been a terrorist attack “of exceptional barbarity”.

Harry Reid Breaks Ribs And Facial Bones

hagerSenate Democratic leader Harry Reid was discharged from a Las Vegas hospital Friday, after sustaining some nasty injuries during his home exercise routine.

Kristen Orthman, Reid’s deputy communications director, said Reid is on his way home to Henderson, Nev., after an overnight stay at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Reid will return to Washington this weekend and is expected to be ready to do battle with Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority when the 114th Congress gets sworn in Tuesday.

Reid broke several ribs and bones in his face when a piece of exercise equipment broke and he fell. Adam Jentleson, the senator’s communications director, told the Associated Press that the accident occurred when an elastic exercise band broke and hit Reid in the face, causing him to fall. As the senator fell, Jentleson said, Reid struck part of the equipment and broke several bones near his right eye. Reid then hit the floor and broke his ribs.

Jentleson said tests found no bleeding in his brain or other internal bleeding.

Reid’s security detail first brought him to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb, after the accident occurred New Year’s Day. He was transferred to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas for further testing and was admitted “as a precaution,” the senator’s office said.

Sarah Palin Son Stepping On Family Dog

84575808 mause

Facebook photos posted by Sarah Palin showing her son Trig using the family dog as a step stool unleashed online fury on Friday reminiscent of the public reaction to the disclosure that Mitt Romney had once driven with his dog strapped on the car’s roof.

Trig, 6, who has Down Syndrome, is shown stepping on the back of the family’s black Labrador while it lies on the kitchen floor in order to reach the sink. The dog appears unruffled.

The Facebook post by Palin, who was the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, drew more than 12,000 comments by midday Friday, ranging from cries of animal abuse to those seconding Palin’s praise for the youngest of her five children.

“May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.
