    Mother regrets forcing her daughter to sleep with her father when she was a teenager. 

    The woman identified as Justine, has expressed her regrets over forcing her then 11-year-old daughter Amanda, to have sex with her father for money.

    The mother and daughter duo who appeared on popular TV series, Dr.Phil, had confronted themselves after 20 years of the abuse. According to Amanda, her parents made her start drinking alcohol from the age of 13, and afterwards made her join in when they were having sex. 

    She also claimed her mother and her father Jim, made video tapes of their sexual trysts and took sexual photos of her, which they eventually sold online. 

    Amanda told her mother:

    “I know I made poor choices, my innocence was stolen from me.” 

    Dr Phil asked Justine: “In what parallel universe does a mother watch her daughter performing a sex act on her husband and her father?”

    Justine and her husband Jim were reportedly charged with sexual assault and exploitation of then 13-year-old Amanda. They pleaded guilty and were sent to jail for 20 years. 

    Amanda had this to say about her encounter: “My parents forced me to have sex with them, Justine would show me how good sex would feel by having sex in front of me 

    with my father.

    She also said she was threatened not to reveal their several sexual encounters. “It’s been 20 years since that nightmare ended, but it’s still hard to grasp the idea that they are out of prison, I don’t think I’ve ever received a real apology from Jim.”

    Here’s Justine’s excuse for doing what she did: “Jim found out how much money could be made from child pornography. If I could take it all back I would. I hate myself for what I did.” 

    Jim has however said Justine who is now his ex-wife, lied about the whole ordeal, because she had participated willingly.

  • Obama urges reform of 'unfair' US criminal justice system

    17/Oct/2015 // 212 Viewers

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - 

    President Barack Obama urged reform of the US criminal justice system Saturday, saying much of it "remains unfair" and that punishments should correspond to the severity of crimes.

    "The United States is home to five percent of the world's population, but 25 percent of the world's prisoners," Obama said in his weekly radio address. "Every year, we spend $80 billion to keep people locked up."

    The president said the reason the United States has such a high prison population -- 2.2 million -- is that more non-violent offenders have been put behind bars over the past decades than ever before.

    Despite efforts to address the matter, "much of our criminal justice system remains unfair," Obama said. "In recent years, more of our eyes have been opened to this truth. We can't close them anymore."

    He called on the Republican-controlled Congress to send reform bills to his desk to sign into law and said he would be traveling around the country to highlight the issue in the coming weeks.

    Among other things, "justice means that the punishment should fit the crime," Obama said.

    "And justice means allowing our fellow Americans who have made mistakes to pay their debt to society, and rejoin their community as active, rehabilitated citizens."

    Obama's comments came as the United States prepares to release thousands of prisoners considered at low risk of returning to crime, as part of an effort to ease prison overcrowding and redress overly harsh sentences.

    The measure stands to benefit petty criminals and drug users sentenced to long prison terms for minor, non-violent offenses.

    The release comes after the US Sentencing Commission, which sets policy for federal crimes, reduced its sentencing guidelines for drug possession.

    While the US population has increased by 30 percent since 1980, the country's prison population jumped 800 percent during the same period.

    The result is a record rate of incarceration for an industrialized country, which has overburdened the federal prison system.

  • Several killed in shooting at Shiite gathering in Saudi Arabia

    17/Oct/2015 // 234 Viewers

    A gunman killed five people at a Shiite gathering in eastern Saudi Arabia on Friday before being shot dead by police, the interior ministry said, in an attack claimed by a group linked to Islamic State militants.
     
    A gunman killed five people at a Shiite gathering in eastern Saudi Arabia on Friday before being shot dead by police, the interior ministry said, in an attack claimed by a group linked to Islamic State militants.
     
    It was the latest in a series of bombings and shootings linked to the Sunni extremist group in Saudi Arabia over the past year.
     
    The murders, in the Qatif area of Eastern Province, came two days after the start of commemorations of Ashura, one of the holiest occasions for the Shiite faith, a minority in Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia.
     
    "As (a) result of his shooting, five citizens... were killed, including a woman. Nine others were wounded," an interior ministry spokesman said in a statement.
     
    He said that at about 7:00 pm (1600 GMT) Friday a suspect with an automatic weapon "started to shoot randomly" at a Shiite hall used for commemorations in the Saihat area of Qatif city.
     
    Police intervened and opened fire, killing the suspect, the spokesman said without giving details about the attacker.
     
    "The situation is still under investigation," he said.
     
    State television earlier reported that the gunman was 20 years old.
     
    A group calling itself Islamic State-Bahrain State said in a communique that one of its "soldiers", Shughaa al-Dosari, "attacked a Shiite infidel temple with an automatic weapon" in Saihat.
     
    It warned that "infidels will not be safe in the island of Mohammed".
     
    During Ashura last year, gunmen killed seven Shiite worshippers, including children, in the eastern town of Al-Dalwa.
     
    The interior ministry said the unprecedented incident had links to IS.
     
    A witness to Friday's attack, Ali al-Bahrani, told AFP that "a gunman began randomly shooting at people attending a sermon".
     
    He said that a woman was killed.
     
    Hussein al-Nemr, a local resident, said the shooting was one of three incidents on Friday evening.
     
    Security tightened
     
    Nemr, speaking from Saihat, said a gunman had stolen a taxi in neighbouring Dammam city, and a shooting also occurred at a mosque in Saihat but nobody was injured there.
     
    "We are not sure yet if they are linked to each other," he told AFP, adding IS had warned of attacks.
     
    Since the start of Ashura commemorations, Shiite security volunteers had been checking people at the entrances to houses of worship, Nemr said.
     
    Security has been tightened at Shiite facilities since May when separate suicide mosque bombings killed 25 people.
     
    Both attacks were claimed by IS, which considers Shiites to be heretics.
     
    Most Saudi Shiites live in the oil-rich east, and many complain of marginalisation.
     
    The Ashura commemorations -- which peak late next week -- mark the killing of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed, by the army of the Caliph Yazid in 680 AD. That event lies at the heart of Islam's divide into Shiite and Sunni sects.
     
    IS, which has also targeted Saudi police, controls swathes of neighbouring Iraq and Syria where it has carried out widespread abuses.
     
    Saudi Arabia and its Sunni Gulf neighbours last year joined a United States-led military coalition that is bombing IS in Syria and Iraq.
     
    In July, the interior ministry said it had broken up an IS-linked network and arrested more than 430 suspects involved in attacks and plots.
     
    Earlier Friday, Saudi Arabia's top cleric, Grand Mufti Abdulaziz al-Sheikh, named IS as an enemy of Islam.
     
    "The reality is that they are shedding Muslim blood and destroying Islam. There is no good in them," he said during weekly prayers at the Imam Turki bin Abdullah mosque in Riyadh.
     
    "They are neither an Islamic state nor mujahedeen or Islamic mercenaries. Their faith is falsehood... their reality is bloodshed and looting."

  • Listen To Radio Interview: I had 12 yrs affair with Bill Clinton, he paid $200 for me to abort his baby - Gennifer Flower

    17/Oct/2016 // 366 Viewers

     

    Flowers stated that Clinton personally paid $200 for the abortion in 1977, and she revealed that she was made aware that Hillary Clinton knew that same year about the alleged affair, which Flowers says continued another eleven years or so.

    Flowers described the abortion as “psychologically a horrible thing to go through,” and “not only physically painful but it was very psychologically painful.”

    Flowers was speaking in an hour-long emotional interview set to air Sunday on this reporter’s talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM.

  • Breaking: Jubilation as FBI clears TRUMP, confirms no evidence of Trump or associates working with Russian Intel

    18/Feb/2017 // 29774 Viewers

     

    Following the now-legendary election of November 8th, Democrats and those surrounding the Clinton camp were quick to build hysteria between the U.S. populous and Russia—aimed specifically at discrediting President Trump’s Democratic victory.

    The media has hounded Trump and his team almost relentlessly, questioning them daily on their ‘relationships’ with Putin and the Kremlin.

    While the FBI cleared then President-Elect Trump on October 31st, the media forgot and reignited their perpetual Trump-hating rhetoric once word of the recent Flynn incident came to light.

    Liberals hoping to oust Trump in his first days began to spread the news of General Flynn’s December conversations far and wide. News agencies from every part of the country released statements poised at dismantling the new President.

    ABC news is now crushing that narrative though, and reports that the claims are baseless.

    “A senior intelligence official told ABC News last night that no evidence gathered by the FBI so far suggests Trump associates knew they were talking to Russian intelligence officers.”

    As even more evidence continues to come forth that Trump and his administration are clean in their words, acts, and intentions regarding foreign policy, expect to receive an all-new level of media spin that makes yellow journalism look like child’s play.

  • Breaking: Secret Service agrees to pay $24 million to settle decades-old race-bias case brought by black agents

    18/Jan/2017 // 503 Viewers

     

    The Secret Service agreed Tuesday to pay $24 million to settle a two-decade-old case in which more than 100 black agents have alleged that the agency fostered a racist culture and routinely promoted white agents over more qualified African Americans, according to documents filed in court and interviews with representatives of both sides.
     
    As part of the deal, which is the result of a last-minute push in the waning days of the Obama administration, the agency admits to no wrongdoing or institutional bias.
     
    But the payments to the agents — including lump sums as high as $300,000 each to the original eight plaintiffs — are intended to remedy the sting of the discrimination the agents claim they suffered and the job opportunities they lost, according to interviews with representatives from both sides.
     
    Jennifer Klar, the lead attorney for the black agents, described her clients as thrilled with a result they hope will end future discrimination in the agency.
     
    “At long last ... black Secret Service agents will not be constrained by the glass ceiling that held back so many for so long,” Klar said.
     
    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, whose agency includes the Secret Service, said the resolution was “simply the right thing to do.”
     
    “I am pleased that we are able to finally put this chapter of Secret Service history behind us,” Johnson said in a statement. “Had the matter gone to trial, it would have required that we re-live things long past, just at a time when the Secret Service is on the mend.”
     
    Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy described the pending settlement in a conference call with former directors Tuesday afternoon and then sent an agency-wide message to staff late Tuesday night.
     
    “While the Secret Service takes all allegations in this case seriously, the organization has, and continues to be, committed to a fair and transparent promotion process,” said spokeswoman Catherin Milhoan. “It is time to move forward rather than look back to remnants of the past.”
     
    A Secret Service spokesperson did not respond late Tuesday for comment.
     
    The case centered on black agents who repeatedly bid for promotions from 1995 to 2005, and were turned down in favor of whites. Often the white agents chosen had less experience and lower performance ratings, according to the plaintiffs. Ray Moore, the lead plaintiff, had been a member of President Clinton’s detail and bid 200 times for promotion over the years without success. Moore had trained several of the white agents who were leapfrogging over his head.
     
    The suit was first filed when Clinton was president. But two presidents and four directors had passed the job of resolving this messy legal fight on to their successors. - The Washington Post

  • Breaking: U.S. scientists officially declare 2016 the hottest year on record. That makes three in a row - Washington Post reports

    18/Jan/2017 // 246 Viewers

     

    (NOAA)

    In a powerful testament to the warming of the planet, two leading U.S. science agencies Wednesday jointly declared 2016 the hottest year on record, surpassing the previous record set just last year — which, itself, had topped a record set in 2014.

    Average surface temperatures in 2016, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, were 0.07 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than 2015, and featured eight successive months (January through August) that were individually the warmest since the agency’s record began in 1880.

    The average temperature across the world’s land and ocean surfaces was 58.69 Fahrenheit, or 1.69 degrees above the 20th century average of 57 degrees, NOAA declared. The agency also noted that the record for the global temperature has now successively been broken five times since the year 2000. The years 2005 and 2010 were also record warm years, according to the agency’s dataset.

    NASA concurred with NOAA, also declaring 2016 the warmest year on record in its own dataset that tracks the temperatures at the surface of the planet’s land and oceans, and expressing “greater than 95 percent certainty” in that conclusion.  The agency noted that just since the year 2001 the planet has seen “16 of the 17 warmest years on record.”

    Last year “is remarkably the third record year in a row in this series,” said Gavin Schmidt, who directs NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, in a statement. “We don’t expect record years every year, but the ongoing long-term warming trend is clear.”

    The record comes just two days before Donald Trump, who has tweeted that global warming is a “hoax,” assumes the presidency and with it, control over the two science agencies that just announced these records. It is also the same day that Scott Pruitt, Trump’s controversial nominee for the Environmental Protection Agency, appears before the Senate in what is expected to be a tense confirmation hearing. Pruitt has written that the “debate” over climate change is “far from settled.”


    Trump’s other nominees, such as State Department nominee Rex Tillerson and Interior Department nominee Ryan Zinke, have been less dismissive of climate change in their confirmation hearings, acknowledging at least some human contribution to the phenomenon, but also raising questions either about the extent to which it is human caused, or about our capacity to predict the consequences.

    Scientists have been far less guarded. “2016 is a wake-up call in many ways,” said Jonathan Overpeck, a climate scientist at the University of Arizona, of the year’s temperatures. “Climate change is real, it is caused by humans, and it is serious.”

    NASA and NOAA produce slightly different records using somewhat different methodologies, but have now concurred on identifying 2014, 2015, and 2016 as, successively, the three warmest years in their records.

    Last year’s warmth was partly enhanced by a strong weather pattern known as El Niño, but scientists underscore that this is not the only cause. For example, 1998 was also, at the time, the warmest year on record thanks in part to a strong El Niño — but the 2016 planetary temperature now far surpasses that year. The reason is that the Earth has been warming since then, allowing another El Niño event, unlocking heat from the vast Pacific Ocean, to push overall temperatures to new heights.

    Thus do natural wobbles of the planet’s temperature interact with an overall warming trend to produce new records on a regular basis — but as Schmidt notes, not every single year. At present, while scientists would expect 2017 to be quite warm relative to (say) a year in the 1990s, there has been little talk of a fourth record year in a row. And indeed, El Niño has subsided.

    Two other global agencies, the Japan Meteorological Agency and the U.K.’s Hadley Center, also track global temperatures and may soon declare records for their own datasets, but that has not formally happened yet.

    Based on an analysis of the Hadley Center’s data through November of this year shared with the Post, Michael Schlesinger, a climate scientist at the University of Illinois, also found that 2016 ranked as the hottest year. That dataset dates back still farther to 1850.


    “While the 2016 datapoint is stunning, please remember that these observed temperature departures … contain natural variability as well as the signal of human-caused Global Warming,” Schlesinger noted. Natural variability would include El Niño.

    NASA further noted in its analysis that compared with the late 19th century, the planet has now warmed about 1.1 degrees Celsius, or 2 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s very significant because the global community has been striving to limit overall warming to considerably below a 2 degree Celsius rise, and even, if possible, to hold it to a 1.5 degree Celsius increase. That is now only about .4 degrees away, based on these figures.

    “It is the second year in a row that the annual global temperature has been more than 1 Celsius degree warmer than the pre-industrial level, and shows that the world is moving ever closer to the warming threshold of 1.5 Celsius degrees, beyond which many scientists have concluded the impacts of climate change will be unacceptably dangerous,” said Bob Ward, who is director of policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, part of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

    Last year’s warmth was manifested across the planet, from the warm tropical ocean waters off the coast of northeastern Australia, where the Great Barrier Reef experienced its worst coral bleaching event on record and large scale coral death, to the Arctic, where sea ice hit regular monthly record lows and overall temperatures were also the warmest on record, at least from January through September of 2016.

    Among major 2016 events, the devastating bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef in 2016 did not stand alone. In a catalogue of some of the extremes the planet witnessed during the year, NOAA also noted the megafire that engulfed Fort McMurray, Canada, at the beginning of May, relatively early in the year for wildfires. That event was certainly consistent with a warming climate, as well as with the role of El Niño, although scientists are reluctant to formally say that climate change has played a role in an individual event without conducting extensive analysis.

    Extreme high temperatures were seen from India — where the city of Phalodi recorded temperatures of 51 degrees Celsius (123.8 Fahrenheit) in May, a new national record — to Iran, where a temperature of 53 degrees Celsius (127.4 F) was recorded in Delhoran on July 22.

    For the contiguous Unites States, 2o16 was merely the second warmest year on record, but for Alaska, it was the warmest yet recorded, underscoring once again the sharpness of Arctic warmth in particular.

    The particular signature of warming in 2016 was also revealing in another way, Overpeck said, noting that the stratosphere, the layer of the planet’s atmosphere stretching from about 8.5 to 13.5 miles above us, saw record cold temperatures last year.

    “The pattern of record warmth in the lower atmosphere, coupled with record cold in the stratosphere provides an clear fingerprint of the cause of the unprecedented warming – greenhouse gases trapping heat in the lower atmosphere instead of letting it escape to the stratosphere, and then to space. No doubt about it any more – humans, mainly by burning fossil fuels, are cooking the planet,” Overpeck said.

    All of that said, because of the extreme warmth that occurred early in 2016, the record just announced does not come as much of a surprise to weather and climate watchers. On April 15 of last year, NASA’s Schmidt tweeted, “Too soon? I estimate >99% chance of an annual record in 2016 in @NASAGISS temperature data, based on Jan-Mar alone.”

  • Jubilation as TRUMP takes sharp break from party, presents another plan to benefit everybody

    18/Jan/2017 // 1291 Viewers

     

    In the wake of Republicans trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, and leaving millions of Americans uninsured with no replacement presented, President-elect Donald Trump took a sharp break from his party and presented another plan. Well, not so much a plan, as some words, but let’s dive in!

    Offering no actual insight into how it would be accomplished, Trump says his plan to replace the nation’s health care law will include “insurance for everybody.”

    In an interview with the Washington Post, Trump said, “We’re going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

    Of course, Trump declined to reveal any details.

    “It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes. We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon,” he said.

    Trump said he expects Congress to address the issue in the coming weeks.

    Hmm. Maybe he’ll release the information “soon” along with other things he’s promised, like his tax returns, the information only he knows about Russia hacking the election, and the results of his investigation into President Obama’s birthplace. If you need me, I’ll be over here holding my breath. (Or not, because then I’d need health care!)

  • Ex-president George H.W. Bush moved to intensive care; wife hospitalised

    18/Jan/2017 // 382 Viewers

     

    Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has been moved to an intensive-care unit at a Houston hospital with pneumonia and was stable and resting comfortably after doctors performed a procedure to clear his airway, his office said on Wednesday.

    His wife of 72 years, former first lady Barbara Bush, also was admitted to the same hospital on Wednesday as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing, the office said in a statement.

    Bush, who at 92 is the nation's oldest living ex-president, has been at Houston Methodist Hospital since Saturday after experiencing shortness of breath, family spokesman Jim McGrath said on Wednesday.

    Since then, Bush experienced an "acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia" and was sedated for the unspecified procedure, his office said.

    He will remain in the hospital's intensive-care unit for observation, his office said.

    Bush is the father of former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who sought the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

    The eldest Bush, a Republican like his sons, was vice president during Ronald Reagan's two White House terms before being elected president in 1988. He lost his re-election bid to Bill Clinton, then the Democratic governor of Arkansas, in 1992.

    A naval pilot during World War Two, Bush became an occasional skydiver after leaving the presidency and marked his 90th birthday by parachuting from a helicopter with jump partner.

    He has used a wheelchair in recent years and was hospitalized twice in 2014, once for seven weeks with pneumonia and again for breathing difficulties. In July 2015, he broke a bone in his neck in a fall at the family home in Maine.

    Bush and his wife were already planning to miss President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday due to health reasons.

    "My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it likely will put me six feet under," Bush wrote to Trump on Jan. 10, according to a copy of the letter released on Wednesday. "Same for Barbara. So I guess we're stuck in Texas."

    Trump was critical of George W. and Jeb during the 2016 presidential campaign, and their father did not endorse Trump in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    But in his letter, Bush said he and his wife would be with Trump in spirit at the inauguration and wished him "the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country."

    Republican Senator John McCain and the Carter Centre, founded by former President Jimmy Carter, posted tweets wishing Bush a quick recovery. 

    Bush and the 91-year-old former first lady marked their 72nd anniversary on Jan. 6.

    Bush is the father of former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who sought the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

    The eldest Bush, a Republican like his sons, was vice president during Ronald Reagan's two White House terms before being elected president in 1988. He lost his re-election bid to Bill Clinton, then the Democratic governor of Arkansas, in 1992. 

    In December Bush marked the 75th commemoration of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor by attending a ceremony at his library at Texas A&M University.

  • : Donald Trump takes oath of office 6pm Nigerian time on Friday

    18/Jan/2017 // 384 Viewers

     


    Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States at 12 noon in Washington, and 6pm Nigerian time on Friday.

    The joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies disclosed this.

    The ceremony is scheduled to start at 11:30am, with a musical prelude beforehand, according to a copy of the inauguration programme.

    Afterwards, Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence are slated to participate in the traditional inaugural parade, which is scheduled to start at 3 pm (9 pm Nigerian time).

    According to reports, the ceremony opens with the call to order from Roy Blunt, a senator, followed by readings and invocations and music from the Missouri State University chorale.

    Pence will then take his oath of office, administered by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

    The Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs, and then Trump takes the presidential oath of office, administered by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

    Trump will give his inaugural address, followed by more readings and a benediction and close with the national anthem.

    Besides Trump, his family and the Obamas, several living ex-presidents will be in attendance.

    Jimmy Carter was the first to say he would attend.

    George W. Bush and former Vice-President Dick Cheney also confirmed that they would be there, as well as former President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential election nominee Hillary Clinton.

    A George H. W. Bush spokesman said he would not be there, citing health concerns.
