Bill Cosby's wife says accusers 'CONSENTED' to sex and drugs WTF !!!

Bill Cosby with his wife, Camille 
Bill Cosby’s wife knows her husband is a serial philanderer, but believes his scores of accusers consented to drugs and sex, two confidants of the couple say.

Last week’s revelation that Cosby admitted during a deposition that he intended to ply women with Quaaludes before bedding them barely fazed Camille Cosby, the ­insiders told The Post.

“Camille still doesn’t believe that Bill provided drugs and had sex with women without their consent,” said a source employed by the Cosby family. “She’s well aware of his cheating, but she doesn’t believe that her husband is a rapist.”

Mrs. Cosby is “a proud, dignified but stubborn woman. You can say that she’s standing by her husband, but really, the more people stand against him, the more she perceives it as an affront to her and all that she’s done to make him a star,” said another source who’s done business with the ­Cosbys and remains close to them.

Camille Cosby, 71, who is also her 78-year-old husband’s business manager, demanded last week at a crisis meeting with advisers that their lawyers and p.r. specialists “get back out in front of this,” the business source said.

“I created him, I knew what I was getting and we’ll fix this,” she told the gathering at a meeting at the couple’s Shelburne Falls, Mass., home Tuesday night.

“They are making him out to be such a bad guy, a monster,” Camille said, according to the source.

“People are jumping ship,” she added in an apparent reference to actress Jill Scott, who now says she’s sorry for her staunch support of Cosby, and comedian Jimmy Walker, another onetime defender who now calls America’s Dad the “O.J. Simpson of comedy.”

As prosecutors in Los Angeles and Las Vegas reportedly take a closer look at Cosby’s nearly 50 alleged sexual assaults on women dating back five decades, advisers last week urged him to sever ties with virtually everyone and permanently halt any comeback attempts.

“It’s advisable that you close ranks. That means [cut off] family, Hollywood family, friends, Hollywood friends,” the star was told, according to the business partner.

Camille Cosby remains on Bill’s side, despite his constant cheating.

She “stopped being embarrassed long ago” by her husband’s affairs, the family source said, but cannot tolerate the “invasion of privacy.”

The infidelities were “personal, between Bill and I,” she’s told her circle, the source said.

According to the family source, Camille confided, “You have to allow for space to let your partner do what he wants. I have done that and [Bill] has done that and there’s no jealously, no friction.”

She said every so often the couple goes through an “evaluation period” to determine whether the marriage should continue. “She even once talked to Oprah Winfrey about cleansing herself of baggage every now and again and how it always seems to lead her back to staying with Bill,” the family source said.

Rev. Carl Dianda, the couple’s longtime spiritual adviser who presided over their marriage 51 years ago, told The Post his “heart breaks” for her.

“She made so many sacrifices for him to have a career.”

A Cosby family representative did not return calls for comment.

Watch President Obama dance the tango


Brian Patrick ByrneMar 24th 2016 6:20AM

This is what a reluctant tango dancer looks like. President Barack Obama danced the tango during his visit to Buenos Aires on Wednesday—after declining "multiple" offers to dance, the Associated Press reports.

Obama had been attending a state dinner with Argentinian President Mauricio Macri Wednesday night when a tango-dancing couple sashayed across the room. After showing off their own skills in upright gyration, the female dancer approached the president and offered to take his hand, as the male dancer requested a dance with the First Lady. Obama, though he seemed reluctant, obliged. What followed was an unforgettable lesson in spontaneity.

Immediate reaction to Obama's moves were mixed. Some used the opportunity to lament that Obama will soon leave the White House, saying he and the First Lady "brought dignity and class to the role of First Family." Others, though, said it was ill-timed, given that the dance took place in the aftermath of deadly attacks in Brussels.


Obama's two-day visit to Argentina is the first by a sitting president in two decades, and coincides with the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the nation's "Dirty War," a period of state-sanctioned terrorism against left-wing organizations. Obama has pledged to declassify U.S. military and intelligence documents in the hopes they will offer new information about the war.

8 National Park Sites You Didn't Know Were Dedicated to Women's History

Clara Barton National Historic Site | Glen Echo, Md.Barton is known as the founder of the American Red Cross, though she also served as Civil War nurse, educator, and government clerk. After the Civil War she ran the Office of Missing Soldiers, helping families identify bodies of their loved ones and reunite with wounded soldiers.
Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site | Washington, D.C.Bethune overcame a challenging childhood of poverty and became the only child in her family to receive an education. She established a school for the education of African-American girls and also founded the National Council of Negro Women. Bethune also served as an advisor to former President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site | Hyde Park, N.Y.
"You must do the things you think you cannot do." This site is dedicated to America’s longest-serving first lady, wife of former President Franklin D. Roosevelt. She was also known as an American ambassador to the United Nations and chair of its Human Rights Commission who helped write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
First Ladies National Historic Site | Canton, Ohio 
This site explores the wives of presidents after Mary Regula, the wife of a former Ohio Congressman, established a bibliography of these women leaders, which later turned into a national library and site.
Rosie the Riveter-World War II Home Front National Historical Park | Richmond, Calif.
The park is dedicated to the approximately 18 million women who joined the defense and support industries during World War II, including photos and quotes from real-life “Rosies.”
Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument | Dorchester County, Md.
After a legendary escape from slave-owners in 1849, Tubman led hundreds of slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad, a secret network of safe houses. Later she became a leader in the abolitionist movement, and served in the Civil War as a spy for federal forces and as a nurse. In 1863 during the Civil War, she was said to free even more enslaved African-Americans after conducting an assault on Confederate plantations.
Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site | Richmond, Va.
In 1903, Walker became the first African-American woman in the United States to found a bank, where she served as president. She was known as a great businesswoman and community leader in Virginia after the Civil War.
Women's Rights National Historical Park | Seneca Falls, N.Y.
In 1848, the first women's rights convention took place at this national park site at the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, N.Y. The convention drew over 300 people to talk about the "social, civil and religious rights and condition of woman."

By MAKERS Team :
Women have long been movers and shakers throughout American history though their achievements often go unrecognized. Today, only eight of the 410 U.S. national park sites are dedicated specifically to women's history.

Find details on eight national park sites dedicated to women who made significant strides to advance women and society at large in our gallery.

In addition to these eight sites, today some elected officials have been working on establishing other national park sites dedicated to women's history. 

The Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in New York was authorized by Congress in 2014 to share more history of Tubman's later life including her accolades after the Civil War, though the park has not yet been established.

And Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland introduced legislation in August to establish the Sewall-Belmont House in Washington, D.C., to commemorate Alice Paul who founded the National Woman's Party in 1916. Her home functioned as a space for women’s equality, and now serves as a museum with some of the best resources on women's suffrage and women's rights.

We hope women's history continues to be represented in the nation's historic sites and that these spaces inspire young women to shape their own history.
            So true ,  we have come a long way  with many more miles to  go .

The Roving Reporter UPDATE : Rob Ford Dead: Former Toronto Mayor Succumbs To Cancer

By  Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press
TORONTO — Rob Ford, a man simultaneously adored by his fans and abhorred by his foes as his scandal-packed term as mayor of Canada's largest city propelled him to international infamy, has died.

Ford, 46, succumbed to cancer Tuesday, 18 months after doctors discovered a softball-sized malignant tumour in his abdomen, his family announced in a statement.

"A dedicated man of the people, Councillor Ford spent his life serving the citizens of Toronto," said a statement from his family.

The diagnosis in September 2014 came less than a year after Ford confessed to smoking crack while in one of his "drunken stupors" and forced the mayor to withdraw from his bid for re-election in favour of running for councillor in his west-end ward.

He won in a landslide despite three years of headline-generating notoriety that included slurs against minorities and lewd, public innuendo about his marital sex life on top of his admission — after months of denials — of serious crack cocaine and alcohol abuse.

Those who knew Ford describe a man whose loyalty to family and friends was as unshakeable as the support he received from the "Ford Nation" segment of voters inspired by his rough-around-the-edges, ordinary-guy persona.

"He's very loyal to his friends. He has a big heart," is the way former Liberal MP John Nunziata, a Ford family friend, put it. "He doesn't throw his friends under the bus."

The loyalty was reciprocated. His family stood steadfastly by him through his scandals and, then, through the dark days of his illness.

A significant segment of the public also continued to breathe life into the "Ford Nation."

Ford's brother, Doug Ford, who picked up the mayoral candidacy torch after the cancer bombshell, placed a respectable second in the October 2014 municipal vote — a sign many said of his brother's enduring popularity.

Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, asked recently about the popularity of U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump, invoked the populist approach taken by Ford, whose anti-elitist rhetoric resonated with many people even as he staggered under the weight of the crack-cocaine scandal and derision from those opposed to his public vulgarity.

"There were a lot of people who didn't get it," Trudeau said of Ford. "But he tapped into a very real and legitimate sense that people had around who politicians were."

Ford, who kept a photograph of his late father taped to his mayor's office computer, revelled in his everyman persona. The self-described "ordinary guy" drove his own car to work every day — albeit a luxury SUV — and railed against "downtown elites" and a "gravy train" he said needed derailing at city hall.

He was, grudging admirers said, the consummate retail politician who had an uncanny knack of making people feel that he really cared about their plights.

Yet whatever his political accomplishments, his time in office became known for its sordid explosion into an unprecedented political circus that quickly became an international story.

Fuelling the circus were drugs and alcohol, followed by denials, confessions and apologies.

Sparked headlines around the world

Secretly taken cellphone videos were leaked, resulting in blaring headlines not just in Canada but beyond. The first apparently showed him using crack and uttering slurs against minorities. Ford claimed to have no idea what it was about.

Other videos and audio recordings followed. He spewed profanities, made offensive comments about women. The high school football team — one he had proudly coached for years — dropped him. Top aides deserted him or were fired.

An extensive police investigation turned up links between Ford, known drug dealers and gang members. His friend and part-time driver, Alexander (Sandro) Lisi, was charged with extortion, apparently as he tried to retrieve the "crack" video. That case is ongoing.

Ford narrowly survived a legal attempt to have him booted from office for conflict of interest — on a technicality. However, council stripped him of almost all his power. Yet Ford, backed up or egged on by his councillor brother and with the undying support of the Ford faithful, blustered his way through it all.

People lined up almost half-way around City Hall at one point to buy a Ford bobblehead. He was mobbed like a rock star wherever he went. He revelled in the attention. Even a two-month stint in rehab became, in his words, "awesome."

A controversial figure

First elected as a councillor in 2000, Ford sparked controversy almost from the get-go.

"Oriental people work like dogs....They're slowly taking over," he told one council meeting. He consistently voted against AIDS funding or other social and arts grants. He ranted about a "war on cars," and spoke out against cyclists.

Increasingly, however, his come-from-behind election as mayor in 2010 began unravelling. Ex-staffers described a man by turns ill-tempered and weepy, one who could not resist the bottle, even while behind the wheel of a car.

Late-night TV comics lapped it up. The mayor became a household name in Canada and a recognizable name in far-flung parts of the globe. Asked in October 2014 how his mayoralty would be remembered, Ford laughed.

"It'll definitely be remembered," he said with rare understatement. "No one's going to forget it."

Ultimately, it was the rare, aggressive large tumour in Ford's abdomen that caused the circus tent to come crashing down. Surgery and a repeated regimen of chemotherapy took its toll. He lost his hair. He soldiered on, at times unable even to climb a set of stairs; he battled pneumonia; he became a fixture at city hall in his red track suit — all evidence of his mantra that a Ford "never quits."

On election night in 2014, he praised his brother before vowing to return to fight for the city's top job in the next election. Few doubted he would make good on the promise given half a chance.

Funeral arrangements have not been made but a large turnout is likely, as is a period of "lying in repose" at City Hall. Jack Layton's flag-draped coffin sat at City Hall following his death in 2011 — and Ford, then mayor, paid his respects.

"To him, funerals are mandatory when it comes to friends," Nunziata said.

The former mayor is survived by his wife, two children, his mother, and three siblings.

RIP  Rob Ford....the guy was a victim of a society who made fun of his addiction instead of helping him fight the addiction.... Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones... So sad that he died so young.  'The Genie' --- Witchy  ---The Roving Reporter    G.

The Roving Reporter : Anti-Donald Trump ads criticize Melania Trump for nude photos in bid for Utah's voters

Anna Swartz   Mar 21st 2016 
       There are plenty of reasons not to vote for reality television personality and current Republican front-runner Donald Trump — his racist tirades or his extreme anti-immigration rhetoric, for example — but one anti-Trump group is hoping to slow the candidate's momentum by slut-shaming his wife.
      Make America Awesome, a conservative super PAC devoted to "blocking and reversing Donald Trump's political ascent" is hoping to convince Mormon voters in Utah to vote for Texas Senator Ted Cruz over Trump by running a series of ads on social media, one of which shows Melania Trump, posing naked on what appears to be furs and jewelry, reports Buzzfeed.
         The text over the image reads, "Meet Melania Trump. Your next first lady. Or, you could support Ted Cruz on Tuesday."
Liz Mair, the political strategist behind Make America Awesome, told Buzzfeed that the ad is expected to reach 10,000 voting-age Mormons per day. The message behind the ad is clear: A woman who once posed nude for British GQ doesn't deserve to be a first lady. But that sentiment is troubling for a lot of reasons.
      Women should be able to wear (or not wear) whatever they want without being slut-shamed for it. Whether it's snapping a nude selfie or posing nude for a body-positive photographer, it's up to the women involved to decide how to present their bodies.
       Posing nude — or not posing nude — shouldn't be a metric by which we judge the quality of a person's character. Hateful opinions and violent rhetoric should, though — So decide whether you'll vote for Trump based on what he says, not because of what his wife did or didn't wear one time.

Well , I will leave it to you , the voters to make up your own minds .

The Roving Reporter :Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford not responding to chemotherapy

      Former Toronto mayor Rob Ford's chief of staff Dan Jacobs announced that Ford's cancer was not responding to chemotherapy treatments. Doctors said he was too weak to attempt the next phase of treatment, but hoped he would feel well enough to try a second drug cocktail soon. Ford's family stayed with him overnight as remained unresponsive while he slept. Pictured: Toronto City Councilor Rob Ford is photographed during his tenure as mayor Feb. 15, 2013.

      TORONTO, March 19 (UPI) -- Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is not responding to his chemotherapy treatments, his chief of staff, Dan Jacobs, said.
     Jacobs told the CBC Ford, 46, is not healthy enough to undergo the next phase of treatment, but doctors hope he will soon improve enough to try another round of medication.
      "The tumor was not responding so they didn't administer the last treatment," Jacobs wrote in an email to USA Today. "Doctors decided to let him build up his strength while they decided the next course of treatment."
      Jacobs added that Ford, now a Toronto city councillor, was sleeping, but unresponsive as family members spent the night with him at the hospital.
      Ford was forced to withdraw from the Mayoral race in 2014 after being diagnosed with a form of cancer known as liposarcoma, which aggressively grows in fat cells. He had the tumors removed in 2015, but was later hospitalized again with two tumors on his bladder.
      He gained notoriety in Nov. 2013, when he admitted to smoking crack after a video appeared to show him using a crack pipe. He also raised a few eyebrows inviting the public to a bachelor party for his niece's fiancĂ© in 2015.
      Former mayor and political rival David Miller sent condolences to Ford and his family while speaking to CP24.
      "Everybody's thoughts are with Councillor Ford. I have given my thoughts directly to him and his family," he said. "I particularly feel for his wife and kids. I just hope everybody is thinking of them and of his health."

Kimberly Tripp, also known as Las Vegas' "Mini Kim Kardashian", passed away on Sunday evening and the real Kim Kardashian-West took to Twitter to pay tribute to her mini-me.

Kimberly Tripp was a regular performer at Vegas hot spot Beachers Madhouse, based at swanky hotel and casino the MGM Grand, where she played a miniature version of every one's favourite reality star.

FOX News torches Donald Trump for his 'sick obsession' with Megyn Kelly

Fox News fired back at Donald Trump in a scathing statement Friday evening, in response to the business mogul's latest series of inflammatory tweets directed at Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.
"Donald Trump's vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land," a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement emailed to Business Insider.
Earlier today, Trump called for a boycott of Kelly's show "The Kelly File" on Twitter, calling her "the most overrated person on tv."
Trump has gone on multiple tirades against Kelly throughout the campaign season, most recently on Tuesday, when he posted a series of tweets criticizing the anchor. In some tweets, he dubbed her "Crazy Megyn," a characterization some have foundsexist.
He skipped a Republican debatehosted by Fox News in January after complaining Kelly would be one of three moderators.
"I'm not a fan of Megyn Kelly. I think she's a third-rate reporter," Trump said in January. I think she, frankly, is not good at what she does."
Trump's feud with Kelly began last year when the anchor confronted him over his history of sexist remarks during a Republican debate. Hours after the debate, Trump went on a lengthy rant against Kelly on Twitter and shared one tweet from a different user that called Kelly a "bimbo."
Kelly has generally refrained from responding to Trump's attacks, although she did acknowledge his remarks at least once.
"I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism, so I'll continue doing my job without fear or favor," she said in an August episode of her show, according to The New York Times.
Fox News was scheduled to host another Republican debate next week, but the event was scrapped after Trump, and subsequently Ohio Gov. John Kasich, said they would not attend.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks responded to the Fox News statement by again criticizing Kelly. In a statement to The Associated Press, Hicks said:
Megyn Kelly is a highly overrated reporter and anchor that constantly disparages Mr. Trump with negative and inaccurate reports. Despite the fact he wants nothing to do with her and will not appear on her show due to her extremely biased reporting, much of the program is about him anyway on a nightly basis.

Read the full statement from Fox News here:
Donald Trump's vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land. Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we're extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump's endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it's especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.

Witchy  sez : 
Imagine this coming from a bore like Trump who has married two bought and paid for immigrants or was that three of them? He says he hates immigrants but he ended up marrying them. This guy is totally insane and the people who back him are the dumbest people in this country who don't ask for any details from him or want any because even if he gave them any they don't  have the mental capacity to understand them. Their education stopped after they master the book SEE SPOT RUN!
He is so revolting he makes my stomach turn...Repulsive, disgusting, could use lots of words to describe him...So,. the laughs on him....glad FOX told him to go to hell and back...well...stay there...we all would be better off.

The kidnapping became worldwide news, and it wasn't long before authorities captured and convicted all three men responsible.

Two years after the kidnapping, Sinatra Jr. released his first album, Young Love For Sale, in 1965. He and went on to record five other solo albums, most recently 2006's That Face!
Sinatra is survived by his son, Michael Sinatra, from his relationship with ex-wife Cynthia McMurry, and his sisters Nancy and Tina Sinatra.

Meet Jackie Kennedy's lookalike Granddaughter Rose

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' lookalike granddaughter Rose Schlossberg is an up and coming comedian who has debuted a new satirical web series teaching women how to survive the apocalypse.
The 27-year-old daughter of Caroline Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg co-launched End Times Girls Club with her friend Mara Nelson-Greenberg, and the six-episode web series from Above Average was actually inspired by Rose's time at New York University
'It came up as a response to seeing the way that New York responded to Hurricane Sandy, and how people were grossly underprepared — specifically, girls in damsel in distress mode,' she told Mashable of the venture. 



Doppelganger: Rose Schlossberg (R), the granddaughter Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (L), has inherited her grandmother's wide-set eyes, delicate lips, and thick brunette hair




Steering clear of politics: The 27-year-old Harvard graduate has co-launched her own comical web series, End Times Girls Club, with her friend Mara Nelson-Greenberg (left)
Doomsday: Rose and Mara play the roles of Bee and Lara, respectively, two vloggers who are teaching female viewers how to survive the apocalypse 
'I thought it would be interesting to create this world where girls have to be survivalists without compromising their cute factor.' 
In the short webisodes, Rose and Mara play the roles of Bee and Lara, respectively, two vloggers who are teaching viewers how to do everything from a 'fun new way to start a fire after the apocalypse' to making mascara using nothing but 'ashes and plain old auto grease'. 
'I am not a huge fan of make-up myself, but there are real benefits to looking good post-doomsday,' Rose's character says in the clip entitled Apocalypse Makeover. 'For example you will want people to invite you into their bunker.'
Rose, who is the eldest grandchild of Jacqueline and former US President John F. Kennedy, has her grandmother's same brunette locks, delicate smile, wide set eyes, and slender frame. 
Political dynasty: Rose can be seen sitting in between her brother Jack and her father Edwin at a ceremony to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the visit of President John F Kennedy in New Ross, Ireland, in 2103 





Unmistakable resemblance: Because of her physical likeness to her grandmother, Rose was dubbed 'Jackie 2.0' in 2010

However, the web series sees her donning messy ponytails, casual T-shirts, jeans, and a pair of baggy camouflage pants, which is a far cry from Jackie O's classic style. 
The web series is a part of the online comedy distributor Above Average Productions, which is the digital sector of Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels' company Broadway Video.
'We are big comedy fans, and I think Broadway Video has the best record in the comedy world for making stuff,' Rose told Mashable. 'It's an environment that enables creators, so it’s been a great fit.' 
The brunette beauty, who was named after JFK's mother, was close to her grandmother andwas only a month shy of her sixth birthday when the former First Lady died of lymphoma. 
Formal event: Although she often keeps a low profile, Rose attended the 2014 Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. with her younger sister Tatiana 
Family outing: Rose is pictured sitting in between her parents Edwin and Caroline Kennedy (right) and her brother and sister, Jack and Tatiana (left) in 2013 
Rose was also left devastated by the loss of her uncle John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1999 after the airplane he was flying crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. 
After she graduated from the The Brearley School, an all-girls private school in New York City's Upper East Side, Rose attended Harvard University, where she studied English and film. 
Although Rose comes from a political dynasty, her grandmother Jackie was a patron of the arts and a lover of literature, spending her later years working as a book editor in New York City. 
However, unlike her siblings, who both attended Yale, she has remained out of the spotlight in recent years and attends few public events. 
Historic legacy: Rose is the oldest grandchild of Jackie and John F. Kennedy. The Kennedy's are pictured with their children Caroline and John in 1963
Despite her new web series, Rose barely has a presence on social media, which may be the result of Gawker publishing some of her private photos when she was a freshman in college.
While Rose's 25-year-old sister Tatiana is a writer for the New York Times, her 23-year-old brother Jack is following in his family's footsteps and looking to pursue a career in politics.
Although she has skipped many of the high profile events honoring her grandfather, Rose joined her sister at the 2014 Kennedy Center Honors. 
The brunette beauty, who was dubbed 'Jackie 2.0' by the New York Post in 2010, donned a classic knee-length black dress and heels for the event, but it was her poufy brunette bob, delicate facial features, and red lacquered lips that made her look like a spitting image of her grandmother that night.
