Mehlmen Out as Head of Republican Party After Being Outed

Mehlman to step down from RNC post

AP
Excerpt:
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, whose party lost both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections, will step down from his post when his two-year term ends in January, GOP officials said Thursday…
Before that campaign, he served as White House political director under Rove. In 2000, he served as national field director for Bush’s first presidential campaign, charged with coordinating the efforts of GOP leaders in every state

H.L.s Take
One of the biggest hypocrites of the Republican party is leaving. This is the guy who refused to pull that racist ad against Harold Ford who was Black. Of course the ultimate hypocrisy for a Republican is to be gay, since they hate that so much. Mehlmen was gay, of course he never admitted it. Last night on Larry King live, Bill Maher outed Mehlmen on National TV…Of course King claimed he didn’t know. What a total load that guy is. Either he was lying outright, or just has no idea what the hell is going in Washington. You Tube had the video up, then today CNN made them pull the video. But guess what, we have it right here, thanks to The Huffington Post. Wanna see it? Here it is.


Meet Robert Gates The New Boss…Same as The Old Boss

The Secret World of Robert Gates

Consortium News
Excerpt:
Robert Gates, George W. Bush’s choice to replace Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary, is a trusted figure within the Bush Family’s inner circle, but there are lingering questions about whether Gates is a trustworthy public official….

For instance, the Russian government sent an intelligence report to a House investigative task force in early 1993 stating that Gates participated in secret contacts with Iranian officials in 1980 to delay release of 52 U.S. hostages then held in Iran, a move to benefit the presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

H.L.s Take:
This Gates guy is yet another Bush family crony, who will do whatever they tell him to. Nothing will change in Iraq with Gates in charge. The only way the new Congress will be able to do anything in Iraq is to refuse to stop paying for it, and don’t count on that.


Interviews With Stars from New Movie “Fast Food Nation”

Posted in Latest Stories & Articles by H.L., Main Blog (All Posts) on November 10th, 2006 7:20 am by HL

The new movie “Fast Food Nation” opens soon. I got a chance to go over to The 4 Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills a couple of days ago for a gourmet lunch and to chat with some of the stars of the film, which recently premiered at The Cannes Film Festival.

The Movie is an adaptation of Eric Schlosser’s book expose Fast Food Nation.
In the book journalist Schlosser argues that the fast food industry is responsible for the explosion of malls in America’s landscape, expanding rich/poor gap, causing obesity and other rampant health conditions documented in electronic health records , and in the vanguard of U.S. American cultural imperialism abroad.
The film adaptation is a fictional story based on the book, in which Fast food executive Greg Kinnear finds there is something bad in the burgers, and he had to find out what and how it got there. He takes a trip to the massive slaughter houses of corporate giant “Mickeys” He also learns how they use cheap and illegal immigrant employees, working them to the bone for almost nothing to bring you your Burger and Fries. Here are some pics from the event.
