DIRECTOR ROMAN POLANSKI ARRESTED


Director Roman Polanski was arrested by Swiss police for possible extradition to the United States for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl, authorities said Sunday.

Polanski was flying in to receive an honorary award at the Zurich Film Festival when he was apprehended Saturday at the airport, the Swiss Justice Ministry said in a statement. It said U.S. authorities have sought the arrest of the 76-year-old around the world since 2005.

"There was a valid arrest request and we knew when he was coming," ministry spokesman Guido Balmer told The Associated Press. "That's why he was taken into custody."

Balmer said the U.S. would now be given time to make a formal extradition request.

Polanski fled the U.S. in 1978, a year after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with the underage girl.

The director of such classic films as "Chinatown" and "Rosemary's Baby" has asked a U.S. appeals court in California to overturn a judges' refusal to throw out his case. He claims misconduct by the now-deceased judge who had arranged a plea bargain and then reneged on it.

The Swiss statement said Polanski was officially in "provisional detention for extradition," but added that he would not be transferred to U.S. authorities until all proceedings are completed. Polanski can contest his detention and any extradition decision in the Swiss courts, it said.

Polanski has faced a U.S. arrest request since 1978 and has lived for the past three decades in France, where his career has continued to flourish. He received a directing Oscar in absentia for the 2002 movie "The Pianist." He was not extradited from France because his crime reportedly was not covered under the U.S.'s treaties with the country.

In France, Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand said he was "dumbfounded" by Polanski's arrest, adding that he "strongly regrets that a new ordeal is being inflicted on someone who has already experienced so many of them."

Mitterrand's ministry said Sunday in a statement that he is in contact with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, "who is following the case with great attention and shares the minister's hope that the situation can be quickly resolved."

A native of France who was taken to Poland by his parents, Polanski escaped Krakow's Jewish ghetto as a child and lived off the charity of strangers. His mother died at the Auschwitz Nazi death camp.

He worked his way into filmmaking in Poland, gaining an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film in 1964 for his "Knife in the Water." Offered entry to Hollywood, he directed the classic "Rosemary's Baby" in 1968.

But his life was shattered again in 1969 when his wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four other people were gruesomely murdered by followers of Charles Manson. She was eight months pregnant.

He went on to make another American classic, "Chinatown," released in 1974.

In 1977, he was accused of raping the teenager while photographing her during a modeling session. The girl said Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill at Jack Nicholson's house while the actor was away. She said that, despite her protests, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her.

Polanski was allowed to plead guilty to one of six charges, unlawful sexual intercourse, and was sent to prison for 42 days of evaluation.

Lawyers agreed that would be his full sentence, but the judge tried to renege on the plea bargain. Aware the judge would sentence him to more prison time and require his voluntary deportation, Polanski fled to France.

The victim, Samantha Geimer, who long ago identified herself publicly, has joined in Polanski's bid for dismissal, saying she wants the case to be over. She sued Polanski and reached an undisclosed settlement.

Despite the hard life he came from and lived through, Mr. Polanski deserves to go to prison for what he did in 1978 to a then 13-year old girl.

PROMISING NEW AIDS VACCINE


The news that an experimental AIDS vaccine tested on 16,000 heterosexual volunteers in Thailand had been shown to be safe and modestly effective surprised researchers, who had become used to failure in the decades-long effort to find a vaccine to protect against HIV infection.

The elusive search for a vaccine has its roots in the Bay Area, where one of the two genetically engineered vaccines used in the Thai trial was developed.

The trial relied on a combination of a modified canary-pox vaccine from Sanofi Pasteur and a drug made from an engineered version of a protein found on the AIDS virus, which was made by a Brisbane biotechnology company called VaxGen Inc. The patent for the VaxGen vaccine is now owned by Global Solutions for Infectious Diseases, a nonprofit in South San Francisco.

In 1985 when then President Ronald Reagan finally publicly mentioned the word after famous people like Rock Hudson died, I remember the anger I had towards him and the bigoted ignorance of people.

In 1987 there was a TV show on a then fledgling network called FOX called 21 Jump Street starring Johnny Depp that tried to address the issue of a young high schooler that was living with AIDS and dying from it.

In 1989 I had a friend that I knew briefly that had passed away at 25 of AIDS. Two other friends named Dan and David also passed away before I reached the age of 21.

Reading news like this gives all of us hope that those that are gone are in a better place, their memory is not forgotten and we will find a way to kill this monster that has waged a war against us for decades..

PEREZ HILTON + HARVEY LEVIN = TRASH TV DOUCHBAGS IRRELEVANCY AND THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO US


Instead of you two wasting your time and energy going after people that are highly irrelevant in a town that is highly irrelevant, Hollywood and Hollywood celebrities, why don't you focus your and the world's attention to WALL STREET, the financial firms and the very people that nearly brought this country and the world's economies to its knees and pillaged our money to increase their wealth to unimaginable status while destroying the lives of many?

THE VAMP OF FOX NEWS & TRAITOR TO HER OWN RACE AND ALL MINORITIES


I never pay attention to Fox News as I see them as nothing more than hateful right-wing propaganda but from time to time I kept hearing about a hateful commentator named Michelle Malkin. So when I did finally turned my attention to her, I was VERY shocked to learn that this woman is of FULL-BLOODED Philippine decent from both parents.

Malkin was born in Philadelphia to Philippine citizens, schoolteacher Rafaela and aspiring doctor Apolo [3], who had arrived in the U.S. earlier that year. At the time, her father Apolo was a physician-in-training with an employer-sponsored visa.[4] [3] She grew up in the small southern New Jersey town of Absecon, where she was raised in the Roman Catholic faith. [3] Malkin has recently described a formative event when she was in kindergarten: one day, the other children called her a racist name, and she went home crying. Her mother comforted her and told her that "everyone has prejudice." She has said that she is "eternally grateful" for that counsel.[5]

For many years, Malkin was a frequent commentator for FOX News Channel and a regular guest host of The O'Reilly Factor. In 2007, she announced that she would not return to The O'Reilly Factor, claiming that FoxNews had mishandled a dispute over derogatory statements made about her by Geraldo Rivera in a Boston Globe interview. Rivera, while objecting to her views on immigration, says, "Michelle Malkin is the most vile, hateful commentator I've ever met in my life. She actually believes that neighbors should start snitching out neighbors, and we should be deporting people." He added, "It's good she's in D.C. and I'm in New York. I'd spit on her if I saw her."[18][19] Since 2007, she has concentrated on her writing, blogging and public speaking, although she still appears on television on occasion.

The Virginian-Pilot dropped her column, calling her, among other things, "an Asian Ann Coulter."[24] Malkin responded, "I'm not Asian, I'm American, for goodness' sake. I would take the comparison to Ann Coulter as somewhat of a compliment. I have a lot of respect for Ann Coulter".[25]


This is the same comparison as chairman Michael Steele of the Republican Party. Talk about liars, self-loathing bigots, and traitors all in one. Two minorities joining the Klu Klux Klan. And as with most conservatives, when gathering information: they pull it out of their ass.

DOUCHEBAG 101


Thank you Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina. You are a racist and ignorant DOUCHE BAG for disrespecting the President during his speech last night.

Wilson interrupted Obama's speech after a cascade of boos from Republicans triggered an explicit admonition from the president over alleged coverage for undocumented immigrants in the health insurance reform proposals.

"This too is false," Obama said. "The reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally."

"You lie!" jeered Wilson.

A cavalry of condemnation rode through the chamber. Even Republicans joined in.

"That's not true," said Obama.

Wilson is a major recipient of contributions from the health care industry. In fact, over his entire congressional career, health professionals represent Wilson’s top industry contributors, donating a total of $244,196 to his campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics OpenSecrets.org database. He received another $86,150 from pharmaceutical companies, $73,050 from insurance companies and $68,000 from hospitals and nursing homes.

ANOTHER PATHETIC QUEER IN HIDING


Nothing worse than a self-loathing queer especially those that hide behind a woman later on ruining thier lives that would undermine another for his own selfish political gain while simultaniously behind closed doors would be the first in line to ride a 9 & 1/2 incher .

South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer is a closeted anti-gay politician who stands to replace Mark Sanford should Sanford resign or be impeached (a real possibility as Sanford is caught in his own sex scandal.)

So, what is the deal with Bauer? I have confirmed and spoken to four individuals who I have no doubt are telling me the truth. These men have been hit on by Bauer, with one of them telling me it happened at least five times since Bauer's election in 2003. To a varying degree I have met with and believe the sources. And, as you'll recall, I have that 100% record.

This was still not enough for me to report on him. Then another call came in and I met with the source while he was visiting DC recently. "He's gay," the source told me.

"How do you know?" I asked.
"Because I've had sex with him on two separate occasions." That too, was not enough for me to report on without confirmation from others. I was led on a path to chatting with acquaintances of the source and two former employees of Bauer who served on his staff between 2004 and 2007. They reported to me that on a total of three occasions Bauer spent hours alone with men in hotel rooms. Each of them explained that the visits were with younger men who were not on the staff of the Lt. Governor nor had any official reason to be with him. The two men each confirmed that they had not known each other and each described similar circumstances under which these interactions occurred. One of them confirmed that he was told by the Lt. Governor's visitor he had a sexual encounter with Bauer.


PATHETIC. It is queers like this one that are the real enemy and deserve NO sympathy from gay society. Let all of them turn purple, be outed and ostracized.
