Maurice Sinet, 86, who worked under the pen name Sine for the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, faced charges of "inciting racial hatred" for a column he wrote in 2009. The piece led to in his dismissal from the magazine. "L'affaire Sine" followed the engagement of Jean Sarkozy, 22, to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of an electronic goods chain. Commenting on an unfounded rumour that the president's son planned to convert to Judaism, Sine quipped: "He'll go a long way in life, that little lad." A high-profile political commentator slammed the column as linking prejudice about Jews and social success. Charlie Hebdo's editor, Philippe Val, asked Sinet to apologise but he refused. read more

Pictures have emerged online appearing to show Justin Bieber posing in his underwear before he was reportedly bulked up with airbrushing for his Calvin Klein campaign.

The singer surprised fans with appearance when the advertising snaps were unveiled this week, but pictures which have leaked on the Internet appear to suggest Bieber's body was heavily enhanced.

In one snap, Bieber is seen with a much smaller chest and back, thinner arms and legs, a barely-there butt and a dramatically reduced bulge in his underpants.

St. Louis Post Dispatch Declares That Banning Editorial Comments Will 'Elevate The Ferguson Conversation'

There's a growing trend whereby some news websites have started unilaterally declaring the lowly news comment section dead, and therefore have started eliminating the ability for visitors to comment entirely. While it's one thing to just close site comments and be done with it, sites like ReCode, Reuters and Popular Science have been quick to insist that they're killing comments for the good of the "conversation," which sounds so much better than "we closed news comments because we're too cheap and lazy to police bile and spam."

At a time when racial conversation couldn't be more important, the St. Louis Post Dispatch has decided to join the war on comments, this week declaring that the paper would be eliminating comments from paper editorials completely. This is, the paper declares, because it's very much concerned about having a "meaningful discussion":

U.S. health officials on Tuesday released a draft of long-awaited federal guidelines on circumcision, saying medical evidence supports the procedure and health insurers should pay for it.

The guidelines are being published in the federal register Tuesday. For the next 45 days, the CDC will receive public comment before finalizing them next year.

They are likely to draw intense opposition from anti-circumcision advocacy groups, said Dr. Douglas Diekema, a Seattle physician who worked on a circumcision policy statement issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2012.

The thinking on circumcision has swung wildly over the years. It's been practiced by Jews and Muslims for thousands of years, but didn't become common in this country until the 20th century. By one estimate, only 25 percent of U.S. male newborns were circumcised in 1900. It gradually became the cultural norm, and in the 1950s and 1960s surpassed 80 percent.

Remember the Freedom Fries propaganda?

Rep Bob Ney came up with Freedom Fries because France did not support our imperialist aggression in Iraq. Some time later he went to prison for fraud

"Naturally, the common people don't want war ... but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country." [Hermann Goering]

#27....Sorry Kanrei for delay. Got tied up today. The issue is that Rand Paul or any other politician of either Party that doesn't bend over typically gets reamed by establishment and outside interests, be they illegals or others.

So who among us has disproportionate wealth? If it isn't obvious after watching CNBC and media in general it should be. Easy wealth accumulated by financial wheeling/dealings and by politicians in the pocket, and cronies working the system always aids and abets.

No influence by American Z's and politicians FTBO of Israel? You need to read Israeli media. www.timesofisrael.com I read it to determine what info is excluded from most Americans. If I want to find out what terrorist events are most likely linked to the Mossad I read the ADL.

As a USA taxpayer who is forced by politicians to support Israel etc., I view it as my American responsibility to give an honest candid opinion on foreign policy. The beliefs of the political correctness police staffed by newcomers, believe we should all pay up and shut up. They somehow push a belief that the USA majority should accept becoming victims of racism and accept the outcome.

As a family with direct lineage to the Mayflower and to the early 1700s I don't accept a belief that those with legacy American interests should ever accept playing second fiddle to newcomers, even though I don't believe we should necessarily have any precedence.
