Frank Sinatra Made A Dirty Movie At 19, Says New Biography

John Thomas Didymus -- Digital Journal

A new biography of Frank Sinatra alleges that at 19, struggling to get his singing career started, he agreed to appear in a porn film. According to "Frank Sinatra, The Boudoir Singer: All the Gossip Unfit to Print from the Glory Days of Ol' Blue Eyes," he was paid $100 for his part in the 1934 movie "The Masked Bandit." The author of Sinatra's new biography, Darwin Porter, says he got the information from British actor Peter Lawford, a member of Frank Sinatra's gang of friends in the 1960s, the Rat Pack. The Rat Pack included Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. According to Peter Lawford's story, Sammy Davis Jr., who collected porn movies, had a copy of Frank Sinatra's movie.

Obama's Strategic Misfires Behind The Mess That U.S. Is In, Says Bill Clinton In New Book

Associated Press

Former President Bill Clinton says in a new book that last summer's political fight over raising the US debt ceiling made the nation look "weak and confused" overseas and he doesn't know why President Barack Obama didn't seek a hike in the limit when Democrats still controlled both houses of Congress. He says the final deal did little to create jobs or solve the longer-term debt crisis. In his book, "Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy," Clinton analyses the factors that contributed to the nation's current economic woes and offers several policy prescriptions he says would create jobs and make the US more competitive.

Was Vincent Van Gogh Murdered?

Christina Caron -- ABC News (US)

Video AND TEXT. Experts have said for more than 100 years that post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh walked to a wheat field on July 27, 1890, shot himself in the chest with a pistol, then died two days later in his room at the age of 37. But "Van Gogh: The Life," a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith -- who were honored in 1991 for a biography about American painter Jackson Pollock -- argues the troubled artist might have been murdered. The authors questioned why (and how) the Dutch artist would have obtained a gun, and pointed out that the gun was never found. They also challenged the idea that Van Gogh could have walked all the way back to his room in Auvers-sur-Oise, northwest of Paris, with a serious injury.

Dyan Cannon Book Recounts Life With Cary Grant

Zorianna Kit -- Reuters

It was a fairy tale romance that turned in to a stormy marriage, and now Dyan Cannon has chronicled her relationship with Hollywood legend Cary Grant in her new book, "Dear Cary: My Life with Cary Grant." With an age difference of over 30 years, the duo had a magical courtship in the 1960s that eventually gave way to the dark side of Grant after they were engaged. Following three years of marriage and not long after the birth of their daughter Jennifer, the couple divorced and Cannon suffered a nervous breakdown.

 Jerry Sandusky Arrested And Jailed; Two New Accusers Bring Number To 10

Genaro C. Armas And Marc Levy -- Associated Press

One of the new accusers said Sandusky kept him in a basement bedroom during overnight visits to Sandusky's home, forced him to perform oral sex, and tried on at least 16 occasions to anally penetrate him, sometimes successfully. "The victim testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, knowing that Sandusky's wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him," the grand jury report said.

YEST Pakistan President Zardari In Dubai For Treatment As Coup Rumors Intensify

A government adviser said Zardari had suffered a "minor heart attack," but this was at odds with the official spokesman for the president, who said the president had gone for routine tests for a pre-existing heart condition. Rumors of a coup or a resignation forced by the military consumed the media and the internet, fuelled by an American media report that said Zardari was "incoherent" on Monday night during a telephone conversation with Barack Obama. Zardari's son and political heir-apparent, Bilawal, met prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in Islamabad, adding to media hysteria about imminent change.

YEST Psychology Researcher Finds That Power Does Go To Our Heads


For most people, being in a position of power or influence means that you want to influence others and achieve your own goals. In North America, these goals tend to be self-defined and independent from the wider social context. As a result, thinking -- focusing on one's own goal and how to achieve it without being distracted by the surrounding context -- can be advantageous. Dr. Li-Jun Ji, the study's co-author and a social psychologist who studies the relationships between culture and thinking, also found that North American individuals with high socioeconomic status (SES) displayed more analytical thinking than low SES individuals. She believes that this may be because higher SES increases people's feelings of agency, a precursor to power. ...

Laurel And Hardy Fan Group Keeps Laughs Alive

Susan King -- Los Angeles Times

They meet every Tuesday afternoon at the famous Culver Hotel in Culver City, seated at a center table in the restaurant, engaged in lively, loud luncheon conversation. They are members of the Sons of the Desert, the international Laurel and Hardy appreciation society, and a more devoted group is hard to find. The name derives from the 1933 comedy starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. They play friends with domineering wives who hope to attend a convention of their fraternal organization, called Sons of the Desert. The film society has "tents" all over the world, including several in California, with the Way Out West tent in Hollywood. A recent Sons gathering was particularly ebullient. The group was thrilled about the recent release of "Laurel & Hardy: The Essential Collection" DVD set which contains 58 comedy shorts and features starring the gangly Englishman Laurel and the portly Hardy that they made for producer Hal Roach from 1929 through 1940. Among the highlights are "Sons of the Desert," 1937's "Way Out West," 1938's "Block-Heads" and 1932's Academy Award-winning short "The Music Box," in which the boys try to deliver a piano up a massive flight of stairs.

E-Verify Flags Obama's Social Security Number As "Likely Fraudulent"

Jerome R. Corsi -- World Net Daily

A private investigation reveals that the Social Security Number being used by Barack Obama does not pass a check with E-Verify, the electronic system the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created to verify whether or not prospective employees have the required authorization to work legally in the United States. Over the past few years, the E-Verify system has received national attention because of its ability to determine if prospective employees are illegal immigrants who have entered the United States without the legal authority to work. Entering Obama's Social Security Number into the E-Verify Self Check, the system indicated Obama's Social Security Number produced a mismatch that warranted a visit to the Social Security Administration to investigate the discrepancy. ...

Missing the Plot While Chasing the MacGuffin

by Robert Jay March
Sunday, May 1, 2011

Just as we were about to post the Wednesday, April 27, 2011 issue of MarchReport.com, a bulletin came in to the effect that Barack Obama had finally released his long-form birth certificate. Since it was "press-time," I uploaded the issue, sent out that day's newsletters, and then went to the WhiteHouse.gov web site to download the birth certificate. I revised that day's issue to include the story, with a link to the pdf file of the birth certificate as released by the White House.

Having covered the story that we called "Certifi-Gate" since October 22, 2008, I was relieved that it was finally over ... or, so I thought. I was tired of being called a racist (despite the fact that I myself am racially mixed, being a mix of Polish, Ukrainian and Mongolian ancestry), a right wing conspiracy theorist (despite the fact that the story originated with Linda Starr, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and ultra-left-wing zealot who advocated the impeachment of President Bush, the arrest of Harriet Miers, Josh Bolton, and Karl Rove by the U.S. House of Representatives' Sergeant At Arms, and a Radio Left/Daily KOS partisan; and was initially prosecuted by Philip J. Berg, a Democrat, former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania and former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, who had worked on her campaign). I was sick of the death threats, although those had tapered off in proportion to the decline in Obama's popularity.

After uploading the revised April 27 issue, I took a closer look at the pdf file. Being a computer graphics specialist since 1971, and having made the transition from mainframe to desktop software in 1991, I had worked with Photoshop since version 2 and Illustrator since version 3, I immediately saw evidence of layering in the document. "Oh, Scheißdreck," I said to myself ("Scheißdreck" wasn't the word I used, actually, but some kids read this page, and I'm a father and grandfather myself). The following day I found, unsurprisingly, that others had spotted it as well. I even ran articles and videos over the next couple of days, which described the analysis performed by others.

The layers could be innocent enough, in that some modern scanning software breaks typographic elements into layers to facilitate optical character recognition; but, PhotoShop and Illustrator offer the option of flattening the layers into one. Was the failure to do this the result of a naive operator who was insufficiently familiar with the software, or who simply did not comprehend that the presence of these un-flattened layers would drive those who believed with all their hearts and souls that Obama was a usurper ... a Manchurian Candidate in office ... nuts. Was it simple sloppiness caused by the desire to get this out quickly and embarrass Donald Trump? If so, that sure backfired, having made Trump look like the titan who finally forced Obama's hand. Or, were the layers left in place deliberately, to make it look like the document had been falsified. Was it red-meat for die-hard conspiracy theorists? Was it a new MacGuffin for us to chase, while losing sight of the plot?

Alfred Hitchcock Redux.
With his 1935 film, "The 39 Steps," Alfred Hitchcock popularized the MacGuffin; both the term and the technique. Hitch described the MacGuffin technique as follows in a 1966 interview with François Truffaut:

"It might be a Scottish name, taken from a story about two men in a train. One man says "What's that package up there in the baggage rack?" and the other answers "Oh, that's a MacGuffin." The first one asks "What's a MacGuffin?" "Well," the other man says, "It's an apparatus for trapping lions in the Scottish Highlands." The first man says "But there are no lions in the Scottish Highlands," and the other one answers "Well, then that's no MacGuffin." So you see, a MacGuffin is nothing at all."

The MacGuffin is a person, place or thing that drives the narrative; but, as Hitchcock said in television interviews, "the audience don't care" what it is. I am of the opinion that we have been focusing so intently on tracking down the MacGuffin that we've lost sight of the plot.

Enter Stage Right.
By 2009, Obama had spent in excess of $1.3 Million to prevent his birth certificate from being released, and had succeeded in demonizing everyone who dared ask a question about it.

Enter Donald Trump, and suddenly, Obama releases it without a whimper. The "mainstream media," who as recently as the day before the release, had been saying for years that Obama had already released his birth certificate; that they'd already seen it, and that anyone who questioned Obama's legitimacy was a racist or a loon, suddenly was reporting on the release of his "private, long-form birth certificate" as if it was a mere footnote to the story, rather than the earth-shattering event that it was.

They either could not bring themselves to admit the obvious: that they had been dutifully reporting what the White House told them to report, much as Pravda would have done in the days of the Soviet Union, or they simply could not confront the truth about themselves. The days of reporters wearing out shoe-leather to follow a story where the facts lead have long since been over. This is the day of press-release journalism: A "source" supplies an alleged fact, another "source" confirms it over a three-martini lunch, and that gets reported as fact. The days of Edward R. Murrow, or even Walter Winchell, are over. These are the days of "Ted Baxter," the dim-witted news anchor played by Ted Knight (born Tadeusz Wladyslaw Konopka) on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show," come to life. One of the most valuable lessons learned from the whole Certifi-gate affair is that the "mainstream media," really the commercial media, are completely useless; and, I include Fox News in the bunch; they are simply the least rotten of the bad apples.

Is It Real, Or Is It Memorex?
Frankly, it doesn't matter. We've been "played," but they've shown their hand by going back to the well one too many times.

Why spend, by 2011, in excess of $2 Million to hide something, only to release an apparently tainted version of it when a political opponent was getting traction? In order to answer that, we have to look at what the Obama Administration has done with "ObamaCare"; they're using exactly the same methodology here.

Let me draw you an analogy as a way of easing you into an explanation of the methodology in play here. In the mid 1980's, I saw Geraldine Ferraro on the subway platform at the 71st Street and Continental Avenue station in Queens, N.Y., waiting for the E or F train, both of which stopped there in those days. Having been the first female candidate for Vice President on Walter Mondale's ticket, scrutiny of her husband John Zaccaro's finances contributed to the defeat of the Democrats.

In New York City, you only see celebrities on the subway at two points in their careers: when they're on their way up, and when they're on their way down. In both cases, they're looking for an ego-boost: a "recognition fix." Ferraro was very conspicuously trying to look inconspicuous, if you take my meaning. She was wearing dark glasses, which were very ill-advised on the dimly-lit platform, and was making exaggerated movements, such as pulling her fur collar up to her face, in a faux-attempt to conceal her identity. At that point, her career appeared to be over, and she had no way of knowing that brighter days were ahead. She needed the "recognition fix," and by her movements, sought to assure herself that she was still known and recognized, that she was still a "celebrity."

For three years now, the unreleased birth certificate of Barack Obama has been very conspicuously trying to look inconspicuous. With the help of the Democratic Party's lackeys in the media, the story that should not be talked about was talked about incessantly, making those of us who followed the story look like fools, racists, or both. Never mind that fact that the first candidate whose eligibility under Article II Section 1 of the Constitution (the "natural born" clause) was not Barack Obama, but John McCain. McCain responded by immediately releasing all of his documents, and the Senate responded by passing Senate Resolution 511 , by unanimous consent. The resolution, co-sponsored by then-Senator Barack Obama, recognized that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen, and eligible to run for and, if elected, serve as the President. From the bill: "Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a 'natural born Citizen' under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States."

Is It Hocus Pocus, Or Is It Bogus POTUS?
So, what does any of this have to do with "ObamaCare"? The methodology being used to push "ObamaCare" forward is the very same methodology as that being used vis-à-vis the birth certificate.

On January 31, 2011, senior federal judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida, Roger Vinson ruled that "ObamaCare" was unconstitutional in its entirety because it violates the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Having so ruled, an injunction was unnecessary; the Executive Branch was required cease all enforcement of the law because the law itself had been declared null and void. Nonetheless, the Obama Administration, who's most significant accomplishment thus far has been the new and innovative ways it has discovered to circumvent the Constitution, continued to enforce the unconstitutional "law." On March 3, 2011, Vinson stayed his order, giving the Obama administration seven days to file an appeal; just seven days. In his stay order, Vinson harshly criticized the Obama Administration, saying "It was not expected that they would effectively ignore the order and declaratory judgment for 2-1/2 weeks, continue to implement the act and, only then, file a belated motion to 'clarify.'" By dragging its feet and thus (yet again) circumventing the Constitution, the Obama Administration has effectively bought itself free reign to get "ObamaCare" so embedded in the health care system that it will be impossible to dismantle.

The same logic has been at work all along on the birth certificate. Assuming it's real, as I do, the reason for the long stall is obvious. The term "natural born citizen," at the time of the drafting of the Constitution, was commonly understood to mean the offspring of parents who were natural born citizens at their birth; note the plural: parents.

Obama's birth certificate clearly shows that he is the son of a mother who was an American Citizen, and a father who was a Kenyan Citizen. It is on this basis that attorneys such as Mario Apuzzo have filed litigation to have Obama disqualified. In all of my prior editorials and podcasts, I have made clear that I was not willing to take it this far: if the long-form birth certificate were to be released, and it showed Obama was born in the United States, I would be satisfied. That was, and remains, my position on the issue, but, since I am not a Supreme Court Justice, my opinion carries no legal weight.

This, obviously, is the reason why the birth certificate was withheld for so long. Although I consider it unlikely that a Court that has refused to hear legitimate suits on this issue based on spurious issues of "standing" would disqualify Obama based on the interpretation of Apuzzo, et al., the possibility existed. Thus, the "Mystery of The Birth Certificate" was crafted, to keep it from being released long enough that a disqualification of Obama would cause chaos. Were he to be disqualified, every law he signed would be null-and-void; effectively pocket vetoed. Our gutless Supreme Court would have issued another "one-off" ruling, as it did in the case of Bush v. Gore, where it resolved the 2000 presidential election in favor of George W. Bush, declaring that the ruling was "limited to the present circumstances."

Fooled Me Once, Shame on You; Fooled Me Twice, Shame On Me.
I am open to the possibility that the birth certificate released is a forgery, but I seriously doubt it. I am of the opinion that the birth certificate released is real, and that the layers that appear are a result of how modern scanning software scans documents. I also believe that the layers were not flattened to give renewed life to the MacGuffin we've been chasing for three years.

Until Wednesday, the preponderance of evidence lead to the conclusion that Obama had something to hide. Release of the certificate tips the scales. The preponderance of evidence now leads to the belief that he hid the certificate to prevent a challenge based on his father's nationality.

Continuing to pursue the birth certificate issue is a losing proposition, and will guarantee a second term to Barack Obama. It will make it look like all of the accusations of racism and conspiracy theories were correct, and will tarnish any candidate who pursues it.

About a decade ago, I took a vow to myself that I would not lie to anyone about anything, ever. It was a logical progression of a vow I took in the mid-1970's, when my daughter was born: that I would never lie to her about anything, ever. I never did, not even about Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Approximately 10 years ago, my child by then being an adult and on her own, and anyone else I had to protect having passed on, I decided to risk applying that to my dealings with everyone. Over and over again, I have paid a very high price for doing so, but maintain that vow to this day in all my dealings.

In that spirit, it's time to admit that we were "had" by a master practitioner of deep-dish Chicago politics. We have nothing to be ashamed of. We followed the facts where they led. That they led exactly where Obama wanted them to lead is no fault of ours. Fooled me once, shame on you; fooled me twice, shame on me. As "The Who" suggested, "Don't get fooled again"

MarchReport.com will continue to cover developments in the Certifi-Gate issue, and will follow the facts where they lead, as we have always done; but, we will do so from the perspective cited above.

MarchReport.com is hardly the most important outlet covering this story, but the White House reads our stuff anyway. In the spirit of respect for an adversary, I request that whomever at the White House is tasked with doing so relay this message: "Well played, Mr. President."

 Mitt Romney's New Ad Touts Family Life, Marriage; Seen As Slam Against Thrice Divorced Newt Gingrich

Aliyah Shahid -- New York Daily News

Video AND TEXT. It's no secret that Newt Gingrich has been married three times. But Mitt Romney wants to remind conservative voters that he, on the other hand, has been with the same woman for 42 years, and has five camera-friendly sons. The Republican presidential candidate has come out swinging with a new ad casting himself as a devout, family man: drawing distinctions between himself and his chief rival who has admitted to extra-marital affairs and is a religious convert. Romney does not call out Gingrich by name in the spot that's set to air in Iowa and New Hampshire this week, but it's being largely interpreted as a not-so-subtle attack on the ex-House Speaker who has recently emerged as a top-tier candidate. ...

 Newt Gingrich Cutting Into President Obama's Support In Key Swing States

Alison Gendar -- New York Daily News

Newt Gingrich has a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in key swing states and his surging candidacy has started to cut into President Obama's support in those states, a new poll found. In a head-to-head Republican matchup, GOP voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania chose Gingrich over Romney by margins ranging from 18 to 27 percentage points, a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday found. No one has won the White House since 1960 without carrying at least two of the three swing states. ...

The full results from the New York Times/CBS News survey of Iowa caucus goers are out and, as expected, find Gingrich on top with 28 percent support. Ron Paul's two-minute web video attacking Gingrich has been turned into a one-minute TV ad airing in Iowa, paid for with a big surge of online fundraising.

YEST Blagojevich Attorneys Seek Mercy, But Judge Indicates Long Sentence Likely

Sam Hudzik -- WBEZ Radio

Attorneys for Rod Blagojevich acknowledged the former Illinois governor committed crimes, while pleading for leniency at a sentencing hearing on Tuesday. Their presentation included a taped phone call featuring Blagojevich's family, and letters written by his wife and daughter. "His family deserves mercy," attorney Aaron Goldstein told federal Judge James Zagel. "They are not the ones that have to be responsible for these crimes." But Zagel's rulings and comments during the all-day hearing indicate he's unlikely to spare Blagojevich from a lengthy prison sentence. A decision could come as early as Wednesday, after the prosecution and Blagojevich himself get a chance to address the judge. ...

Chris Woodyard -- USA Today

For a couple of generations, the Ford Econoline van has been as much a part of the landscape as, well, a Lincoln Town Car. But like the Town Car, the Econoline -- now known as the E-Series -- is getting killed off. It's not because of flagging sales. The E-Series has owned the big commercial van segment for more than three decades. Rather, Ford wants to go to a Sprinter-style, European high-roof van. It will get 25% better fuel economy, is far lighter than the E Series, and Ford can see efficiencies from having a single global design. ...

Vicky Buffery And Daniel Flynn -- Reuters

France will lose its AAA credit rating early next year regardless of last-ditch efforts by President Nicolas Sarkozy to resolve the euro zone crisis at an EU summit this week, a poll of economists showed on Wednesday. The snap survey of 13 economists found that 11 of them think France will be downgraded by one of the major ratings agencies within the next three months. The only question, following this week's blanket euro zone credit warning by Standard & Poor's, is whether France will be cut by one notch to AA+ or by two to a straight AA. ...

Weiss said after the plane landed at JFK, adding that Baldwin, 53, was "actually talking on his phone" -- not playing a game. "He got up, threw his papers on the floor and stormed into the bathroom, slammed the door closed, beat on the wall and then came back," Weiss said. ...

 Can Bane Measure Up To The Joker In New Batman Film?

Kurt Orzeck -- Reuters

Bane is no Joker. But will that matter for "The Dark Knight Rises?" Christopher Nolan's final Batman installment may well hinge on Bane, a little-known villain outside comic book circles. He will be played by Tom Hardy, star of Nolan's "Inception." Hardy has a tough act to follow in Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning turn as the Joker. The hulkish Bane broke Batman's back in the comic book series. Does that mean Bane will break Batman's back in "The Dark Knight Rises"? Warner Bros. Motion Pictures President Jeff Robinov isn't saying -- but he did say he is enthusiastic over the response to the marketing. Robinov expects the reaction to the character to be even stronger when the six-minute "Dark Knight Rises" prologue, which features footage of Bane, arrives in 32 IMAX theaters in the U.S. next week. ...

YEST World's First Cyber Super Weapon "Designed By The CIA" Attacked Iran, Now Threatens The World

Rob Waugh -- Daily Mail (UK)

The launch of Stuxnet in 2010 marked the transformation of viruses into weapons of war. Experts believe it was so sophisticated that it could have only been invented by designers with the backing of a nation state, with the spy arm of the U.S government being the main suspects. It was purpose-built to attack Iran's Busehr nuclear plant, overriding and controlling circuits inside the plant to cause physical damage. It was the first malware that could truly be described as a "cyber-weapon." "With Stuxnet we have opened a new chapter in human history," says Ralph Langner, the security expert who unravelled the attack. "There is now no way we can stop or control the proliferation of cyber-weapons." ...

Workmen have torn up an enormous section of the lawn in front of the White House for a mysterious, top secret project. The hole by the West Wing is roughly 100ft by 100ft in size and has for the first time in living memory left the ground and pipes beneath the Oval office exposed to the elements. The White House already has a number of tunnels; the exact number is, of course, classified. The most well known is the underground corridor that leads to the President's Emergency Operations Center, a supposedly nuclear-proof bunker located six stories under the East Wing.

Obama Nullifies And Ends U.S. Constitution

Sher Zieve -- Canada Free Press (CA)

Sometime in May 2011, Mr. Obama illegally threatened the then-sovereign State of Texas with the US government's establishment of a "No Fly Zone" (a term previously used by the US government to enact wars against enemy countries) over Texas if the State leaders and its population refused to go along with illegal sexual groping intimidation techniques delivered by a US government entity misnamed as the "Transportation Safety Agency." As this illegal act by the Obama regime (also see "Obama Syndicate") was never met by any real or lasting resistance from US Congressional leaders or the old Marxist-Leninist court system, the US Constitution was effectively rendered null and void and the United States of America -- along with the world -- entered into what has come to be known as the "Second Dark Age" of mankind. ...

Federal Debt Will Reach More Than 100% Of GDP For 1st Time Since World War II Under Obama's Budget

Jerome R. Corsi -- World Net Daily

Barack Obama's release of the 2012 budget was met by considerable skepticism, despite administration claims that the proposed spending cuts will put the government on track to half the budget deficit by the end of Obama's first term in office. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 12,268, down five points on a day in which the market traded mostly down as experts sorted through the details of the budget. Almost immediately after the 216-page plan was released, along with a 1,368-page appendix and a third 360-page volume of historical tables, critics pointed out that Obama's budget conceded that 2011 will see the largest one-year jump in debt in U.S. history, almost $2 trillion in a single year. With the release of these documents, the Obama administration was forced to concede that the national debt will total $15.476 trillion by Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year. The debt will reach 102.6 percent of the gross domestic product, or GDP, for the first time since the end of World War II. ...

Obama Blaming Others For His Failures

Michael Goodwin -- New York Post

When word got out that Barack Obama told an interviewer he had learned from his mistakes, the grandees of the political class swarmed to the bait. Like primitive mystics "reading" the entrails of a sacrificial animal, they began dissecting his comments to divine whether the president is signaling a course change after the election. No, he's not going to change. Why mess with perfection? Obama thinks he did everything right and nothing wrong. And he remains stuck on blaming others, including voters, the media, Republicans, Washington, and impossible-to-please liberals. In short, nearly halfway through his term, Obama still doesn't get it. He's clueless about his massive failures, which means, if he's given the chance, we can expect more of them. ...

If you get the financial-reform bill passed -- then, well, I don't know about this particular derivatives rule, I'm not sure that I'm satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven't yet brought about world peace and -- (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker." (Laughter.)

"The Stink Of Intellectual Corruption Is Overpowering"

Rob Waugh -- Daily Mail (UK)

Following on from the original "climategate" emails of 2009, the new package appears to show systematic suppression of evidence, and even publication of reports that scientists knew to to be based on flawed approaches. And, not only do the emails paint a picture of scientists manipulating data, government employees at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) are also implicated. The emails paint a clear picture of scientists selectively using data, and colluding with politicians to misuse scientific information. Clive Crook, a commentator for the Atlantic, who described the earlier inquiries into the Climategate emails as "ineffectual" and "mealy mouthed," reportedly said, "The closed-mindedness of these supposed men of science, their willingness to go to any lengths to defend a preconceived message, is surprising even to me. The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering." ...

Fresh Round Of Hacked Climate Science Emails Leaked Online

Leo Hickman -- Guardian (UK)

A fresh bunch of private emails exchanged between leading climate scientists throughout the last decade was released online on Tuesday. The unauthorized publication is an apparent attempt to repeat the impact of a similar release of emails on the eve of the Copenhagen climate summit in late 2009. The initial email dump was apparently timed to disrupt the Copenhagen climate talks. It prompted three official inquiries in the UK and two in the US into the working practices of climate scientists. Although these were critical of the scientists' handling of Freedom of Information Act requests and lack of openness they did not find fault with the climate change science they had produced. The emails appear to be genuine, but the University of East Anglia said the "sheer volume of material" meant it was not yet able to confirm that they were. One of the emailers, the climate scientist Prof Michael Mann, has confirmed that he believes they are his messages. The lack of any emails post-dating the 2009 release suggests that they were obtained at the same time, but held back. Their release now suggests they are intended to cause maximum impact before the upcoming climate summit in Durban which starts on Monday. ...

Montana Woman, Blinded As A Result Of Her Doctor's Incompetence, Thrown Out On The Street By Heartless Nursing Home On That Same Doctor's Orders

    by Robert Jay March

    Stefanie Monington of Montana is a long-time MarchReport.com reader. More accurately, she was until she was rendered blind as a result of the apparent incompetence of her primary care doctor. Below, I relate the facts of the case as described to me by Ms Monington.

    On June 15, she was hospitalized in Sidney Health Center, Sidney MT, with severe headache, nausea and loss of vision. On June 20, she was moved to Sidney Health Center Extended Care, a nursing home located at 104 14th Ave NW, Sidney MT.

    I am withholding the name of Ms Monington's primary care doctor, in that he is the villain of the piece. For the purposes of this article, we'll call him "Dr H." The doctors referred to by their real names are the "good guys."

    The nurses scheduled an appointment with an optometrist on July 1. Her pain and vision continued to worsen, and she pleaded with the staff for help, to no avail. A call to "Dr H" resulted in his telling the staff that her eye condition was "not such an emergency" that she could not wait until July 1. According to Ms Monington, some of the staff even accused her of faking her blindness. "Dr H" is under contract to Sidney Health Center to provide primary care services and clinic coverage on a regular basis.

    Ms Monington is a former employee of mine, who stayed in touch after moving west several years ago. Having become desperate, with no one else to turn to, she wanted to call on me for help. She was prevented from doing so by the nursing home staff, even though the number she would be calling was an 800 number that would cost the nursing home nothing. On Thursday, June 23, she finally managed to get through to me, begging me to intervene on her behalf.

    I called the office of Dr Gregory Cavanaugh, the Optometrist she was scheduled to see on July 1. I described Ms Monington's symptoms to his wife, who was very concerned, and relayed the information to her husband. Dr Cavanaugh contacted the nursing home and directed the she be transported to him the following day. Dr Cavanaugh was shocked by what he saw, and could not understand why she had not been brought to him immediately on June 15. He said "something must be done right now to save your sight," and described the case as "beyond his pay grade." He referred her to a specialist, Dr Mark Morin, E MD of Trinity Regional Eye-Care in Williston, ND, who saw her that very day and diagnosed Ms Monington with Acute Narrow Angle Glaucoma.

    Drs Cavanaugh and Morin are the heroes of the piece, with Cavanaugh playing "Robin" to Morin's "Batman." According to Ms Monington, Dr Morin said that, had she not been seen until July 1 as originally planned, she would have been rendered permanently blind. As it was, the delay in treatment caused permanent damage to her optic nerves. Her sight, at present, could be compared to that of a normal person having entered a very dimly lit theater. She can see shadows and blurs; she doesn't run into walls, but she can't see faces or read letters less than 1/4 inch tall. Remember, this is a woman who had normal vision less than two weeks earlier.

    The onset of Acute Narrow Angle Glaucoma was apparently caused by cataracts, that had developed so slowly she hadn't noticed them. The cataracts in turn blocked the tear drainage ducts of her eyes, causing the pressure to build up.

    You would think that the staff of Sidney Health Center Extended Care would be happy that Ms Monington had finally been correctly diagnosed, but such was not the case. According to Ms Monington, someone who identified herself as a member of the Nursing Home's Administrative Staff severely scolded Ms Monington for "causing such a fuss" and getting everyone upset. This same person was one of the people who had originally accused Ms Monington of "faking it."

    Dr Morin performed surgery on her right eye, but there was no improvement in her vision. The delay in treatment, which was totally avoidable, had caused permanent damage. He intended to make an attempt on her left eye. She was to be seen again Thursday, Sept 1, but this appointment was missed as a result of Sidney Health Center Extended Care discharging her against her will, on the instructions of "Dr H": the same doctor who misdiagnosed her and obstructed her attempts to obtain proper care promptly.

    To be fair, they didn't put her right on the street: they agreed to pay for one day at the Richland Motor Inn in Sidney, MT, after which she is on her own. As Ms Monington describes it, she was rendered blind by the apparent incompetence of "Dr H," tossed out on the street by Sidney Health Center Extended Care at the direction of the same "Dr H," who prevented her from getting immediate care from a qualified doctor in the first place. She also had no way of getting to Williston, ND to see Dr Morin, since she is no longer a patient of the nursing home, and therefor had no means of transportation there and back.

    As a result of her blindness, she is helpless. She cannot go home because she lives in Lambert, MT in the middle of nowhere, lives alone, and cannot see to navigate her way around the house or even cook food. To add insult to injury, her landlord has served her with an eviction notice because, as a result of her situation, she has been unable to pay her rent for the last two months.

    I am disabled and homebound myself, and produce MarchReport.com single-handed in the hope of being of some service to the community at large. As such, all I can do myself is publicize the situation, in the hope of handing the story off to a larger media outlet who can take it to the finish line.

    I am requesting the help of the MarchReport.com readership on behalf of Ms Monington, as she is now totally helpless through no fault of her own. She is faced with the prospect of living in her car, which she cannot drive because of her blindness. Due to the oil boom in that part of Montana, apartments are nearly impossible to get. Everything is full. Even the homeless shelter has a waiting list, so that is not an option. Adult protective services is working with a local minister to find a place for Ms Monington, or work with her landlord so that, with some aid, she can return home. Please try to visualize yourself in this position. Faced with this nightmare, what would you hope for from others? Please consider rendering that help to Ms Monington. Winters in Montana are very cold.

    Feel free to pass this on to any and all media outlets (tv, radio, newspaper, web, et al.) Any reputable media outlet can call me at 1-800-878-6007 between midnight and 2pm Eastern time (you work odd hours when you produce a news site) to request Ms Monington's cel phone number, which is presently the only way to contact her. I am not publishing it here to protect her from crank calls.

    Temporarily, donations for Ms Monington can be sent to Stefanie Monington, PO Box 157, Lambert MT 59243. Ms Monington is working with a local official who is associated with the Salvation Army, who is in the process of setting up a fund for her. This information will be posted as soon as it is available. You may also use the MarchReport.com donation web form to make a donation by credit card, but please also send a separate e-mail saying that the donation you made is for Ms Monington, so that the funds donated on her behalf get to her, rather than mixed in with reader donations to MarchReport.com itself.

    Ms Monington says that, had it not been for the help she received from MarchReport.com, she would have been rendered permanently blind for the rest of her life. Perhaps so, but the battle is only beginning. Ms Monington says she has reason to believe that medical records are being falsified by people wishing to cover their tracks, and her current desperate situation may prevent her from getting the ongoing care she needs. Please do what you can to help, be it in the form of donations, calls to media, prayers, or by putting pressure on those who did this to her to make it right. Also, please don't hassle Drs Cavanaugh and Morin; again, they're the "good guys."

    Rants & Raves from Our Readers

    A reader who wishes to remain anonymous sent in this criticism:

    Great news coverage. Too bad you market by exploitation of women and by increasing interest in our already broken sex saturated sex focused culture. Why not drop the rot and go for excellence. I had possibly considered financial support but not with your sex oriented lead headlines. Please consider a change.

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    Actually, I agree with you. The reason we put the "exploitation" articles in is that, since we began doing so, our traffic has gone up 30%, and with that, advertising revenue. Regretably, sex sells.
        I am a disabled, home-bound journalist, and MarchReport.com is how I make my living. I must use any means to get traffic up in order to survive, even if I find the method(s) distasteful. Also, as I have been celibate for 15 years, I find these articles even more offensive than you do. I've experimented with removing them, and traffic goes way down. I have to do what I must to survive, both individually and as a daily web site news platform. Just skip over the articles you find offensive.

    Reader Jacob Martin of North Carolina sent in this criticism:

    In response to your editorial on BHO's birth certificate, you seem to end it by saying "Oh, well, let's just move on." This attitude is the reason our country is in the shape it is in. If we don't find out for sure and prosecute all involved, to include the "criminal-in-chief", and incarcerate them, then we have no excuse for any future fraud perpetuated on our nation. I've heard that the "government is scared to prosecute" because of the anarchy that will ensure from blacks, well, it's time to deal with that too. Every time something happens in this country and blacks don't like the outcome, they mob, riot, loot and destroy public and private property; and blacks are not alone, as the liberal "march on wall street" group are no better. Our founding fathers stood up for something and we as a nation are letting them, ourselves, and our future down. Liberals as a whole are destroying the very foundation of what this country stands for and it needs to stop now.

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    You need to read the Editorial again, as it seems you have missed the key point: I believe the birth certificate Obama released is real, and that the unflattened layers were left there as "red meat" for those unwilling to let it go. After stating that, I went on to discuss the "what if it's not" scenarios.
        The Founding Fathers actually lived in world of despots and not-so-benelovent dictators; their courage was forged in that cauldron. The "leaders" of our country today are made of a weaker alloy, where freedom is the assumed norm. The axiom "freedom is not free" is lost on them; only those of us who are the children of Holocaust survivors and Iron Curtain escapees comprehend that it is not. If it turns out that the birth certificate is not real, there is no one in a position of authority who has the courage to act on it: absolutely no one. If the Supreme Court ever actually displayed to courage to hear this case, they'd simply issue another Bush v. Gore type of ruling, and would let Obama remain in office.
        Your efforts would be better spent on seeing to it that he is not allowed to serve a second term.

    A reader who wished to be referred to by the nom de plume "Great Granny Jane" wrote:

    Hi, just wish to let you know how much I love your Report! And please,if possible do not stop ! I would be happy to help, financially, but am almost 90 yrs old, on an extremely limited income, but I will, if I ever have any extra, count on me to send you a wee bit!

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    While I welcome donations from those who are willing and able, the fact is that most readers do not donate, and that's fine. I'm delighted to have you as a reader. I thank you for your kind note, and congratulate you on your longevity.
