This week we highlight a person who comes and goes from this list. This week we choose the beautiful Christine Flores or as we know her Christina Milian who was born September 26, 1981 in Jersey City, New Jersey. She has a long resume as a pop singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress, and model. She moved to Los Angeles when she was 13 years old, desiring to be an actress. She has had four weeks on our list and has made the top 51 twice In 2009 she was #26 and in 2008 she was #36. The last time we saw her she was working at the voice as a social media host. She left that show to be on Dancing with the Stars. She next showed up on Grandfathered on Fox with John Stamos. We picked her this week because when the American Music Awards happen the place is dripping with sex but Christina rose above them all and tore up the red carpet. We have always been a fan of her long black hair, dark complexion, smoldering eyes and classic figure. She has always been sexy but this night she really brought it all out and it was game on.
Here is a Saturday check of the numbers for the GOP for the 2016 office of the president. First the numbers Trump is still number one at 38.8 percent of the likely GOP primary voters. This lead is getting bigger again as the Carson is now bringing in only 14.7 percent but enough for a clear second place and keeping the outsiders as the top two. The Washington insiders are moving up and shaking out as Rubio is now your third place with 10.3 percent of the vote. The fourth place is bring help by Cruz with 7.1 percent. We thought these are the four to be concerned with all other are below this line are not going to gain enough traction to make it through Iowa and New Hampshire. This vote in Iowa will shake the world as we really have no idea about the numbers and it will be a great litmus test to see if all the hype is warranted. Can you imagine if Trump wins by 10-15 percent of the vote as that kind of momentum can carry the whole way, flip the coin and if beats Carson by 1-2 percent then the battle is on. The third option is Rubio or Cruz bring their number up to get in the race unexpectedly. This could happen if people say Trump and Carson but when it comes to flip[ping the switch they cannot bring themselves to that place.
Welcome the latest bailout and you would think in an administration that was built on bailouts it could not happen. The Department of Health and Human Services reassured private insurers that they will be able to recover losses from participating in Obamacare. They built this monster and now we have to feed it as they say were have an obligation of the US government to bail them out. They even used the word like it was a sinking ship, taking on water. The risk corridors program runs from 2014 through 2016, the federal government is to collect money from health insurers doing better than expected and use those funds to provide a federal backstop to other insurers who incur larger than expected losses from rising medical claims. The idea was to provide training wheels to insurers in the first years of Obamacare’s implementation, and to take away any incentive for insurers to cherry pick only the healthiest customers. Let us be clear this is an open-ended government bailout in the event of industry-wide losses. There was a provision in the 2015 spending bill that limited the program, requiring HHS to pay out only from the pool of money collected, rather than supplementing it with other sources of government funding. If they read the bill before they signed the bill they would have seen that enrollees in Obamacare are disproportionately sicker, and losses are piling up. For the 2014 benefit year, insurers losing more than expected asked for $2.87 billion in government payments through the risk corridors program, but HHS only collected $362 million from insurers performing better than expected.
This is an issue that cut to the core of being American. We are all immigrants, most came from another country. We stand for freedom and if you are oppressed we want you to come here and flourish. Just like every other thing in a twisted world, a moment of nice exposes you to a world of hurt. The House will vote on a bill to boost up the screening of Syrian and Iraqi refugees before they enter the United States. President Barack Obama wants to allow 10,000 more Syrians into the U.S. this year, has threatened the veto. The Obama administration claims the current screening of Syrians is more rigorous than for any other set of travelers. They are checked by multiple federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies and include an interview overseas, biometrics, fingerprinting and biographical investigations to determine if individuals meet the standards for refugee status or if they pose security risks. Then Homeland Security Department makes the final decision on whether a refugee is accepted. The current acceptance rate for Syrians is around 50 percent. Roughly there have been 2,500 Syrians taken in since the civil war erupted in that country in the spring of 2011, half of those are children. There have been two percent that are single men of combat age.
Sometimes we report only the leaving of a candidate and never anything other than that. That would be the case for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who has finally dropped out of the 2016 race for president. This makes the most sense and the best decision he has made since the beginning. He is ending a campaign that failed to gain much support among Republicans and was not going to win over many democrats or independent. The 44-year-old Jindal dropped out gracefully and said he was not ready to endorse another candidate, but will of course support the eventual Republican presidential nominee. This is a double dip for him as well as he is term-limited and out of office in January. He said he will go to work for America Next, which he started as a think tank. We should give him a little bio before he rides off into the sunset he was the first elected Indian-American governor in the nation. Jindal focused his entire campaign effort on Iowa, first courting evangelical voters and then trying to broaden his appeal as a candidate with conservative policy plans that others were not talking about. He has never been on the main stage and in a year of Trump and Carson on the outside and Rubio and Bush from the inside there was not enough steam to keep alive.
After the last debate it is clear the democrats have become a two horse race and even with that one of them is American Pharaoh and the other is a Times square police horse, guess which one is Bernie Sanders. We have seen the end closing in on Martin O’Malley. He is financially broke as a candidate and his presidential campaign is showing all signs of life support. They are reallocating resources to reduce the size of its headquarters staff and focus on the early presidential nominating states, especially Iowa. This all in tactic is used often at this stage as an almost Hail Mary. You hope to get enough steam in Iowa carry through New Hampshire then become relevant. The bottom line is former Maryland governor has been low single-digits in polls no matter what the country view of Hillary Clinton has been and after the hearings, SNL and debates he cannot compete. He has struggled to raise the money necessary to support his relatively large operation. The news came fast as after the last Democratic presidential debate when the phones did not ring the O’Malley staff was alerted there would be a shift away from the current campaign Baltimore headquarters to its field operations in the early states.
This week we highlight a lady who made us drool. When you watch a country award show there is some sexy but not like this from the woman of the week. Jana Rae Kramer who was born December 2, 1983 in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Jana came to Nashville via Hollywood as an actress mostly on the small screen but enough roles in well-known shows to make a name for herself. You might have seen her in Entourage, 90210, One Tree Hill or Friday Night Lights. She did some movie work on Click, Prom Night, The Poker Club and Laid to Rest. We picked her this week because she was super-hot and sexy on the red carpet at the 2015 CMT music awards in a green dress that might have been the best look since fall. She has a golden tan, long blonde hair, perfect smile, alluring eyes, a perfect hour glass figure and all the curves in all the right places. Jana will more than likely continue to sing and act but winning the Top New Female Artist is a sign that Nashville thinks she has something. We will keep an out for her now that she is on the radar for new roles, music and videos.
The idea that France put planes in the air and attacked Syria strong holds of a terrorist group is well, bad ass. We have spent plenty of space getting out kicks putting down the French. This weekend we are all French, we are all Paris and we all stand together in the wake of another senseless attack. We love that France put planes in the air bombed and then splashed the news with the story. We are excited that maybe this time the Europeans will understand what we are dealing with and it needs to be cleansed from the earth. The idea that France president could strike so fast and inside the moment has changed our view of France moving forward and we will no revert. This was a watershed moment for them as much as you want to help and think your role is to save all. There are bad people those bad people will exploit your weaknesses and eventually these are the things that harden your resolve making it hard to be nice, kind, compassionate and above all provide help to your fellow man. France attacked they were kicked and they kicked back it is going to take effort but this is game on and we hope the US can use this to create a bigger strike in union.
We wondered where the big Obama money was going to go and when. The 2016 Democratic presidential primary seaon is approaching and it seems Hillary is a slam dunk. So maybe that is the reason almost four-fifths of the people who gave the 2012 maximum $5,000 to the president’s re-election committee have not donated to a presidential candidate yet. There are two schools here my favorite is Clinton or Sanders do not excite them and they might screw their heads on right and vote GOP. The other thought is the larger role of super PACs and that their donations to candidates, which are limited in this election cycle to $5,400 for the eventual nominee, do not carry enough juice. This money, SuperPac and politics is a slippery slope as just ask former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who has a SuperPac that raised $103.2 million as of July and we watched last month as his campaign cut staff salaries and trim the head count at its Miami headquarters. We would like to think that Clinton is not bringing the money or the votes that President Barack Obama has claimed the last two elections. Remember in the end Romney lost by seven percent so if the GOP can gain just four percent of those independent voters this is going to swing a different way.
The one thing the terrorists will never understand is they cannot win the war they are waging. The thing about Americans and French is we will love our freedom. We understand the idea was to attack a sport event, concert and going out to dinner. The idea we are not safe do any of the things we take for granted. The problem is we are self-centered and always think these things no matter how bad are going to happen to someone else and if they happen to us it is our time. None of this is going to stop us from going to see a reunited Guns N Roses someday, the Dallas Cowboys play football live or a great prime rib on a Friday night after a long week of work. They will never win because these are the things we will always do and they just do not understand them. The French and Paris are the latest to feel the wrath of this senseless killing for no reason. The massacre of innocent people is no way to wage a war and forcing your soldiers to kill themselves has never worked through history. We will not mention the group that caused this horror because they do not matter the lives lost matter and over time these like all the other radical groups will disappear to be a foot note in a history book.
You mother always said action speaks louder than words. Sometimes the words you use and the action you take speak volumes. That is what we believe when you hear Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch broke the news that they are unlikely to back a candidate in the crowded Republican presidential primary. Some think it is because there is no clear cut favorite they like but we believe it not that at all. How about the leader right now is running a campaign that needs no money Trump is unfunded. So they are not going to give him money. Here is the other piece if they liked Rubio Bush or even Carson he would need to back them to get Trump out of the way. This is a clear sign that he thinks Trump is the guy and why would he not they speak the same language, are in favor of the same things and both come from old money, and have a ton of new money. We believe the Koch brothers have backed Donald Trump without giving him a dime and without saying it. This could also be a last hour change as well if they see Rubio gaining steam through the primaries and join Singer to help him over the Trump hurdle which is also not out of the question .
The time has come to wish all our veterans a special day for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Those who live in freedom will always be grateful to those who helped preserve it. Thank you to all our past and present Military for the unselfish job they do to protect our freedom. May God watch over them and bless the USA. As we reflect this Veteran’s Day, let us honor and remember all those who serve or have served in our military. We owe our gratitude to the men and women in the military who promote peace and justice and protect people across the world. Our thoughts are with the families of those who have lost their lives, and our thoughts and prays for the continued safety of all our military personnel. It is our duty and privilege to remember the sacrifices they have made and continue to make on our behalf. These courageous patriots who have pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, to our country we salute all generations of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen that have responded to duty’s call and risked their lives for our safety. For that reason we ought all to take a few minutes today and remember our men and women in uniform – those who’ve served in the past and those who serve now; those who’ve returned safely from tours of duty and those who’ve come back wounded; and above all those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for our liberties and way of life.
We get another GOP debate tonight and here is to hoping we get more from Trump that has some teeth and not just blather. Let us hope for Carson to bring his A game and stay in it, not fading into the shadows. Let us also hope the Rand Paul does not hijack the debate now that the field is smaller and he needs haymakers to save his campaign. We also have Cruz who is making head way but we are not sure where it is coming from or if it is real. We are not sure what happened to Carly after the last debate we thought she would a steady climb, which has not been the caseThen there is the one with a shot Rubio, we need to remember e is good looking, well spoken, intelligent and it could be his time. The problem is the GOP nominee will be facing Hillary Clinton and this will be no easy feat. She does not back down, she knows how to attack when you do not see it coming and she has a machine that knows how to spin the media and win the day. The most important thing to watch for in this debate is not the six people facing each other but can any of these six beat Clinton doing the same thing.
This week we highlight a woman who has had a week before last year. Léa Hélène Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne or as known to us in the US . Léa Seydoux. Lea was born July 1, 1985 in Passy, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, but grew up in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 6th arrondissement. We told you then about her career in France and she started acting in 2006, but we first saw her in 2010 in here US movie Inglorious Basterds. She has also had roles in Robin Hood, Midnight in Paris and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Beauty and the Beast and The Grand Budapest Hotel. This week she is in the new James Bond movie Spectre. The movie opened up at number one pulling in $73M. The budget for the new Bond is $245M for the over two hours of thrills. Lea is super sexy in not only a European way, she has an air about her on screen and off. She has an amazing body with all the curves in the right places. This makes sense because she is also a model and with a body and face like that you can see we she will always have a place for here for years to come. When the calendar changes you can look for Lea in Gambit and It’s Only the End of the World.
Ben Carson knows first hand there is a media bias and is calling it out. We have to give him credit as when they attack the GOP or forget to report important information we know it is clear even when most say we are seeing things. The media heightened scrutiny over his life stories are one of the reasons he has risen to the top of the GOP primary polls. We watched a Politico claimed Carson lied about being offered a full scholarship to attend West Point. CNN called him out on his violent upbringing in Detroit. The candidate has called it a witch hunt against him. Carson seems to be laughing all the way to the bank every time it happens. He has big results from small-dollar donors and during the last fundraising quarter, his campaign reported $20.8 million, this is the most in the GOP field. He sent out a tweet that said We the People have made 10,000 donations each day this week, raising $3.5M this week alone. Thank you biased media. We love this and calling them out for what they are, we never understand why this does not get the traction it deserves. Everyone knows it is there and hopefully this is a wake up call to not just read the news but question the angle from anything you read.
