Bon Jovi Records Message Of Support For Iran

Bloomberg News -

'Bon Jovi, Tehran-Born Singer Madadian Record Message for Iran ... U.S. rocker Jon Bon Jovi and Tehran- born singer-songwriter Andy Madadian have recorded a music video of Ben E. King's 'Stand by Me' to bring a message of worldwide solidarity to the people of Iran following the country's disputed presidential election. The pair made the video in a Hollywood studio, with both singing in Farsi and English and backed by musicians including the Bon Jovi band's lead guitarist, Richie Sambora. Their cover version of the classic was posted to the mydamnchannel.com Web site in the hope it will reach Iranians, and isn't intended for sale, producer Don Was says in the video's introduction. 'It's not meant to be on the Billboard charts, wasn't meant to be a hit record, wasn't even meant to be pressed on a CD,' said Was, who played bass on the video, which he produced with John Shanks. 'It's intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people, to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together.' The handwritten Farsi sign in the 'Stand by Me' video translates to 'we are one.''

John Edwards Former Aide Will Tell All

N.Y. Times, 'Former Aide to Edwards Will Write Tell-All Book,' by Jim Rutenberg and Motoko Rich:
'A man who was one of former Senator John Edwards's closest aides has a deal to write a book claiming that Mr. Edwards said he 'would be taken care of for life' in return for falsely claiming he was the father of the baby carried by Mr. Edwards's mistress, Rielle Hunter. The aide, Andrew Young, sold his book proposal to St. Martin's Press for an undisclosed price late last week. In his proposal, Mr. Young quotes Mr. Edwards, a Democrat who was his party's vice-presidential nominee in 2004 and ran for president last year, as begging him to confess to fathering Ms. Hunter's baby. ''You know how much I love you,' Edwards said. 'You know I'd walk off a cliff for you, and I know you'd walk off a cliff for me,'' Mr. Young wrote in the book proposal. ''I will never forget this. And I will always be there for you.'' ... Mr. Young's proposal states that he was writing the book because he had become disillusioned with Mr. Edwards's behavior and recklessness, which he said included participating in the production of a sex tape with Ms. Hunter that Mr. Young later discovered.'

Obama On Palin During The 2008 Campaign

WEST WING MUST-READ: Todd S. Purdum, Vanity Fair's national editor, in the August issue -- 'LOOSE CANNON: It Came from Wasilla --

Despite her disastrous performance in the 2008 election, Sarah Palin is still the sexiest brand in Republican politics, with a lucrative book contract for her story. But what Alaska's charismatic governor wants the public to know about herself doesn't always jibe with reality. As John McCain's top campaign officials talk more candidly than ever before about the meltdown of his vice-presidential pick, the author tracks the signs-political and personal-that Palin was big trouble, and checks the forecast for her future':

'By the time Election Day rolled around, ... [t]he top McCain aides who had tried hard to work with Palin-Steve Schmidt, the chief strategist; Nicolle Wallace, the communications ace; and Tucker Eskew, her traveling counselor-were barely on speaking terms with her, and news organizations were reporting that anonymous McCain aides saw Palin as a 'diva' and a 'whack job.' Many of the details that led to such assessments have remained obscure. But in a recent series of conversations, a range of people from the McCain-Palin campaign, including members of the high command, agreed to elaborate on how a match they thought so right ended up going so wrong. The consensus is that Palin's rollout, and even her first television interview, with ABC's Charles Gibson, conducted after an awkward two-week press blackout to allow for intensive cramming at her home in Wasilla, went more or less fine, though it had its embarrassing moments ... and was much parodied.

'At least one savvy politician-Barack Obama-believed Palin would never have time to get up to speed. He told his aides that it had taken him four months to learn how to be a national candidate, and added, 'I don't care how talented she is, this is really a leap.' The paramount strategic goal in picking Palin was that the choice of a running mate had to ensure a successful convention and a competitive race right after; in that limited sense, the choice worked. But no serious vetting had been done before the selection (by either the McCain or the Obama team), and there was trouble in nailing down basic facts about Palin's life. After she was picked, the campaign belatedly sent a dozen lawyers and researchers, led by a veteran Bush aide, Taylor Griffin, to Alaska, in a desperate race against the national reporters descending on the state. At one point, trying out a debating point that she believed showed she could empathize with uninsured Americans, Palin told McCain aides that she and Todd in the early years of their marriage had been unable to afford health insurance of any kind, and had gone without it until he got his union card and went to work for British Petroleum on the North Slope of Alaska.

Checking with Todd Palin himself revealed that, no, they had had catastrophic coverage all along. She insisted that catastrophic insurance didn't really count and need not be revealed. This sort of slipperiness-about both what the truth was and whether the truth even mattered-persisted on questions great and small. By late September, when the time came to coach Palin for her second major interview, this time with Katie Couric, there were severe tensions between Palin and the campaign.

'By all accounts, Palin was either unwilling, or simply unable, to prepare. In the run-up to the Couric interview, Palin had become preoccupied with a far more parochial concern: answering a humdrum written questionnaire from her hometown newspaper, the Frontiersman. McCain aides saw it as easy stuff, the usual boilerplate, the work of 20 minutes or so, but Palin worried intently. At the same time, she grew concerned that her approval ratings back home in Alaska were sagging as she embraced the role of McCain's bad cop. To keep her happy, the chief McCain strategist, Steve Schmidt, agreed to conduct a onetime poll of 300 Alaska voters. It would prove to Palin, Schmidt thought, that everything was all right. Then came the near-total meltdown of the financial system and McCain's much-derided decision to briefly 'suspend' his campaign. Under the circumstances, and with severely limited resources, Schmidt and the McCain-campaign chairman, Rick Davis, scrapped the Alaska poll and urgently set out to survey voters' views of the economy (and of McCain's response to it) in competitive states. Palin was furious. She was convinced that Schmidt had lied to her, a belief she conveyed to anyone who would listen. ...'[C]ampaign aides cast about for someone who could serve as a calming presence: Palin's horse whisperer. They settled on Mark McKinnon, a smart, funny, soft-spoken former Democrat from Texas. McKinnon had long admired McCain, and had begun the Republican primary season helping him out-though warning that he would never work against Obama in the general election. But now McKinnon, whose role in helping prepare Palin has not been previously reported, and who declined to elaborate on it to V.F., changed his mind and quietly signed on.

Mark Salter, McCain's longtime aide, says that McKinnon was picked because 'he's got a lovely manner: You sort of want a guy who's very easygoing, gives good advice, and doesn't add to the natural nervousness.' ... Palin herself often sounds tired and resentful these days, as if wondering whether she should have blinked and just said no to John McCain.'

Supreme Court To Hear Obama Citizenship Suit

If the our system works as planned and the law prevails, this fraud and liar could be removed from office. Snopes mentioned this in a short statement, but did not elaborate. (Now we know why he is so eager to get Sottomayer appointed!)

BOMBSHELL…Supreme Court now has Obama Citizenship AP- WASHINGTON D.C. -

In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group Americans for Freedom of Information has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school.

The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached for comment in London, where he has been in meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue.

Britain 's Daily Mail also carried the story in a front-page article titled, Obama Eligibility Questioned leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama' s citizenship or qualification to serve as president.

Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter. Pass this along. So far, Obama's main stream media haven't touched it!
