She’s educated



This is pure cuntery here. At first when I watched this, I thought of BH, but I probably shouldn’t mention that, being I wrote that first line. And I know it’s been video time here, but did anyone see Weiner get heckled by Benji from the Howard Stern show? Hilarious. I posted it on the first comment.

U.S. Agents Sell Guns to Mexican Drug Traffickers

Kim Murphy – LA Times

“Federal gun agents in Arizona — convinced that “someone was going to die” when their agency allowed weapons sales to suspected Mexican drug traffickers — made anguished pleas to be permitted to make arrests but were rebuffed, according to a new congressional report on the controversial law enforcement probe.

Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told congressional investigators that there was ‘a state of panic’ that the guns used in the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in January and two U.S. agents in Mexico a month later might have been sold under the U.S. surveillance operation…

At least 195 of the weapons have been traced to Mexico, found mainly at crime scenes, but ATF agents quoted in the report said more than 1,700 firearms were trafficked ‘to known criminals or cartel elements south of the border and elsewhere’ under the operation.

‘I cannot see anyone who has one iota of concern for human life being OK with this,’ Agent John Dodson told committee interviewers.” Full story here

O’rly?

The Hef is back on the market.

The third time was anything but a charm for Hugh Hefner, whose wedding to Crystal Harris has reportedly been called off. According to TMZ, the 25-year model left the Playboy Mansion over the weekend after having a fight with the publishing mogul, 60 years her senior.

Multiple sources tell the site that Harris moved her things out of the mansion and that the wedding, set for Saturday June 18, has been canceled. It would be Hefner’s third marriage.

Hefner didn’t hint at any domestic disruptions on Saturday when he tweeted to a fan in England the details of the wedding. “The wedding is next Saturday (June 18),” he wrote. “And airs on Lifetime on July 13.” He was also a major presence at the Playboy Jazz Festival, where he was spotted on Saturday with Harris on the festival grounds.

Harris has not been silent on Twitter either, but has focused her words on promoting a new single, ‘Club Queen.’ On Monday — that’s after she left him, according to TMZ — Hefner helped his fiancee promote her music career with another tweet to his 638,000 followers.

Hefner, 85, and Harris, 25, began dating in January 2009 and became engaged around Christmas. The blond bombshell was slated to wear a pink wedding gown when she walked down the aisle in the backyard of the Playboy Mansion and, according to the couple, the nuptials were to be a colorful affair not unlike a “garden party.” About 300 people were invited.

Reps for the couple have not commented on the reported split.

Harris lampooned the 60-year age gap with Hefner in a Funny or Die video released just today (Tuesday). In it, she promotes the ‘The Playboy App’ for smartphones that will make you “knowledgeable about things older people are interested in, which is helpful when you’re dating Hugh Hefner.”

 

i bet hes crying tears of metamucil.

Another reason California can’t be taken seriously.

 

Los Angeles — A former transit police officer convicted last year in the shooting death of an unarmed man on an Oakland, California, train platform was freed from prison early Monday morning, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

“He was released at 12:01 a.m.,” said spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Johannes Mehserle was sentenced to two years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter conviction, but California law gave him one day of good conduct credit for each of the 365 days he served behind bars, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Perry said in a court order he signed last week.

Senators Trying to Shut Down Online Drug Marketplace

NBCNY.com/AP

“Senator Charles Schumer is asking federal authorities to shut down a secretive narcotics market operated online with anonymous sales and untraceable currency.

Heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines are among the drugs being sold in the well-protected website apparently operating for just a few months. It was made public by Gawker and news media reports several days ago.

‘Literally, it allows buyers and users to sell illegal drugs online, including heroin, cocaine, and meth, and users do sell by hiding their identities through a program that makes them virtually untraceable,’ Schumer said at a news conference Sunday. ‘It’s a certifiable one-stop shop for illegal drugs that represents the most brazen attempt to peddle drugs online that we have ever seen. It’s more brazen than anything else by lightyears.’

Even more amazing, said Schumer, is that users rate their delivery performance and the quality of the drug on the site.

The website uses a complex Internet configuration that allows the users to remain anonymous and untraceable by downloading the program TOR. Users can then log on to the site and hide their IP addresses so that neither the buyer nor the seller knows who they’re dealing with.

To make sure the money exchanged can’t be traced, the site uses a new digital currency called Bitcoins that can be purchased online by visitors, according to Schumer. Using real money, users purchase these Bitcoins, which can be traded at roughly $9 to one bitcoin, and use them as proxy for real money when they buy things on Silk Road.

‘It’s an online form of money laundering used to disguise the source of money, and to disguise who’s both selling and buying the drug,’ said Schumer.

Once purchased, sellers are advised to ship the drugs in vacuum-sealed packs to make sure the packages aren’t detected from the likes of drug-sniffing dogs and other narcotics surveillance.

Schumer said it was crucial for DEA and Department of Justice to shut down the site immediately now that is public.

‘The DEA has confirmed they are aware of the site, and while they won’t confirm or deny that an investigation is underway, from my years of experience, I’d bet my bottom dollar in this instance there is one underway,’ he said.” -Full article here

 

I went to the Silk Road site this weekend. They’re a little off on the value of a Bitcoin, which was $18.xxx on Saturday, and the whole process of purchasing Bitcoins is annoying. You can get just about whatever drug you could want, prescription or not. I don’t think I’ll be using their services, but the whole operation is interesting. Looks like Canada has something going for them.
