ACTUAL SEIZED “DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER” POWERPOINT FROM NEW ORLEANS SAINTS TEAM COMPUTER
Hey, I’m as pro-union as any talk show host there is but DeMaurice Smith and the NFLPA needs to quit expending time and resources defending totally guilty New Orleans Saints players in the NFL “Bountygate” case. Monday, the league held a hearing for suspended Saints players Jonathan Vilma, Tony Hargrove, Will Smith and former Saint Scott Fujita. All four left the appeal hearing early and in disgust.
Vilma and Fujita commented for reporters during the hearing and professed their innocence. Fujita called the hearings unfair and declared there was “no evidence” against he or any other Saints players. Actually, there was a ton of evidence which the NFL gleefully released to a handful of media members. Among the evidence against Saints players:
* Two Saints assistant coaches confessing on tape in league testimony.
* Video of Hargrove demanding “Give me my money,” from another Saints player after he thought he knocked Brett Favre out of a playoff game.
* A Saints team PowerPoint presentation taken from the Saints own computers which details much of the operation and features a picture of reality tv star Dog The Bounty Hunter.
NFL REPORTER SETEVE WYCHE WAS ONE OF SIX MEDIA MEMBERS PERSONALLY SHOWN EVIDENCE AGAINST SAINTS PLAYERS IN “BOUNTYGATE.”
The league also had handwritten memos and notes from various Saints players and officials detailing and confessing to the “bounties” to injure rival players. All of which they leaked to the media. The “mountain” of evidence against the Saints players was so strong that the New York Daily News actually proclaimed Vilma and the Saints “accomplished very little” in their hearing.
Maybe this is why Mitt Romney is trailing Barack Obama by 43 points among Hispanic voters.
The Republican National Committe has set up a Spanish-language website designed to lure Hispanic voters. Unfortunately, in what has been called “an embarrassing display of racism”, the Republicans posted a photo of laughing children on the site. Why the controversy? NONE of the children are Hispanic. They’re Asian.
US News and World Report originally spotted the gaffe and pointed out that the stock Shuttercock photo that was used by the Republicans was labled “Thailand,” “Asia,” and “interracial.”

MANNY PACQUIAO PUT TIMOTHY BRADLEY IN A WHEELCHAIR SATURDAY-BUT WAS DEEMED THE LOSER OF THE FIGHT
It may turn out to be one of the most controversial decisions in boxing history. Saturday night at the MGM Grand hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Manny Pacquiao lost a split decision to Timothy Bradley for the WBO Welterweight title. As ESPN put it, it was the boxing judges who “shocked the world.” Pacquiao lost the decision despite landing almost 100 more punches 253-159 (according to CompuBox.) Pacquaio also landed the harder punches and was the fight’s aggressor throwing far more blows and landing more in ten of the 12 rounds.
Pacquiao had not lost a fight since 2005. That’s a remarkable seven-year winning streak. However, many veteran boxing journalists who were ringside were shocked by the decision. Dan Rafael of ESPN flat out stated that Bradley “did not win this fight.” Rafael says he actually had the fight scored 11 rounds to 1 in favor of Pacquiao. Veteran tv ring announcer Harold Lederman also scored the fight 11 rounds to one for Pacquiao. The Associated Press had Manny Pacquiao winning the fight 117-111.
None of that mattered to the judges. Las Vegas boxing writer Kevin Iole called the decision of a Bradley win “a joke” but argues it may actually be good for boxing. Pacquiao nemesis Floyd Mayweather Jr. missed the fight. He’s serving time in jail on domestic violence charges.
Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum, who’s committed his share of boxing ethical atrocities, proclaimed himself to be “ashamed” of the sport and the decision, yet stands to benefit financially from a Pacquiao/Bradley rematch.
How about this for adding injury to insult? First, Democrat Tom Barrett gets his ass kicked in the Wisconsin Governor’s race to incumbent Republican Scott Walker. Then a female voter approaches Barrett at his concession speech and flat out slaps him in the face for conceding.
Most Awesome Conspiracy Theory Ever: Alex Jones accuses Bilderbergers of eating gold encrusted babiesJune 4, 2012
ALEX JONES ON-CAMERA ACCUSES BILDERBERGERS OF EATING BROILED BABIES “WRAPPED IN GOLD FOIL,” BETS HECKLERS $10,000 IT’S TRUE
Internet radio guru Alex Jones is the world’s foremost conspiracy theorist. He has among other theories accused the Bush administration of orchestrating 9/11 as an “inside job.” Jones’ latest conspiracy theory is a doozy. He is accusing attendees of the annual Bilderberg Society meeting of ordering dead babies wrapped in gold foil to eat.
Jones is even on tape accusing the Bilderbergers of ordering baby corpses to this year’s annual secret society meeting to dine on. Among those atending this year’s Bilderberg meeting (where conspiracy theorists say secret political decisions are hatched) are Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, former Congressman Richard Gephardt, former Obama economic aide Austan Goolsby, U.S. Senator John Kerry, former Bush speechwriter Peggy Noonan, Henry Kissinger, and former Car Czar Steve Rattner.
