IRAQ'S PRIME MINISTER NOURI AL-MALIKI WAS DELINQUENT IN HIS COUNTRY'S ELECTRIC BILL FROM G.E. INSTEAD OF SENDING OUT A LETTER ANNOUNCING THAT SERVICE WILL STOP IN 30 DAYS, G.E. WAS ABLE TO USE U.S. DIPLOMATIC STAFF TO LEAN ON NOURI AND GET THE BILL PAID.
REACHED FOR COMMENT THIS MORNING, CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O INSISTED THE QUID PRO QUO BETWEEN G.E. AND HIMSELF WAS NO BIG DEAL BECAUSE "THEY REALLY DO BRING GOOD THINGS TO LIFE. LOOK, AMERICA GOT ME!"
HE FURTHER ADDED THAT NO ONE NEEDED TO BE ALARMED, "IT'S NOT LIKE WE DEMANDED THE MONEY ALL AT ONCE. WE DID ALLOW NOURI TO SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN."

Michael S. Smith: You know why I like him? I like him for the same reason I liked it when the Russian revolutionaries opened the books and all the czars secret diplomacy and they showed how the First World War was an imperialist war and they showed the secret deals between France and England and the Russian czar on how to divide up the Ottoman Empire once they won the first great war of the 20th century, the first great imperial slaughter. They wanted to divide up the Ottoman Empire. And in 1916, they had a treaty called the Sykes-Picot Treaty where they racked up all this rich Ottoman stuff between France and England.
Officer Ryan Venneman was posing as 15-year-old "Emily" in an online chat room when he was contacted by someone using the name "Delmarm4fun." This person, later identified as Ritter, told "Emily" he was a 44-year-old male from Albany, N.Y.
"Emily" told Ritter she was a 15-year-old girl from the Poconos, at which point Ritter asked for a picture other than the one "Emily" had posted on her account. Ritter then sent her a link to his Web camera and began to masturbate on camera.
"Emily" asked Ritter for his cell phone number, which he provided.
Ritter again asked "Emily" how old she was. Told she was 15, Ritter said he didn't realize she was 15 and turned off his webcam, saying he didn't want to get in trouble.
Ritter told "Emily" he had been fantasizing about having sex with her, to which she replied: "Guess you turned it off ..."
Ritter then said: "You want to see it finish," reactivated his
webcam and continued masturbating and ejaculated on camera.
