    Politicians are known to kiss babies, rather than their peers. Tell that, however, to Bronx Borough President Democrat Rubén Díaz, who planted what appeared to be a totally spontaneous kiss on the cheek of Manhattan Borough President Democrat Gale Brewer this past June 9. In defense of Mr. Díaz, whom I interviewed last week in his Grand Concourse office, it could be argued that the kiss, widely viewed throughout the Internet, was more than appropriate for the event that ensued that day. Thousands of residents from both Manhattan and the Bronx had come to join Díaz and Brewer and several...

    Jeb Bush is just days away from formally launching his presidential campaign and already a shake-up is underway. (SNIP) Diaz’s promotion is a frank acknowledgment that Bush’s six-month “exploratory phase” has not met expectations and that the former Florida governor needed a new consultant to take the reins ahead of his campaign kickoff in Miami on Monday. (SNIP) “Jeb’s had a pretty bumpy campaign road so far, and he needed to make some changes,” said Douglas E. Gross, a Bush family friend in Iowa who is not aligned with any candidate. “One of the keys to success is getting the...

    Via Ace. “Not only would parents have to attend” if they want their kid to pass sixth grade, notes Walter Olson at Cato, “but for good measure the bill would require employers to bestow a paid day off each year for employees who are parents to do so.” Sounds good to some New Yorkers, as you’re about to see.Here’s the bill, which you can read in 30 seconds. The state would put together workshops on 12 different subjects with parents required to attend four, one of which must be a workshop on sexual abuse. That’s the bill’s saving grace potentially;...

    Time’s ‘Person of the Year’ is ‘The Protestor.’ Now, wait a minute, people. Nobody consulted me, but just for the record, my vote goes elsewhere–for US Border Patrol Agents Brian Terry and Jesus Diaz, and former Marine Sergeant and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer. Why? Because each member of this three-man team put his life on the line to protect the rule of law, to uphold, not challenge it, and he did it not once, not twice, but every day he got up and went out to do his job. I’m thinking an attaboy or two might not be...

    Border Patrol Agent Jesus Diaz did not have a great Thanksgiving. He spent it in solitary confinement as a virtual political prisoner of Barack Obama's Department of Injustice. What did he do? He made what should have been a routine arrest of a Mexican teenage drug smuggler hauling 75 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. The arrest was reviewed by Homeland Security and determined to be righteous and lawful. But then the Mexican government got involved, calling on Obama's Injustice Department to review it. At that point, the illegal alien drug perp was given immunity to testify against Diaz. Lo...

In other words, Presiding Justice Oliver Diaz of Ocean Springs disagreed with a court decision and wanted to write about it. His fellow judges said, no, he couldn’t and they apparently stopped the court clerk from filing Diaz’s statement into the record. Diaz's document also wasn’t made available to the public, as every other order and dissent are. ~ snip ~

    California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger decided there’s a weapon that’s too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens. This past week, a new law went into effect in California banning that weapon. It’s the .50-caliber rifle, the Rolls Royce of sniper rifles. It’s a big gun, a favorite of armies around the world, and it’s still available in 49 states in this country to anyone over 18 with a clean record. It is, without a doubt, the most powerful weapon you can buy. And, as Correspondent Ed Bradley reports, it's powerful enough to kill a man or pierce armor...

    WASHINGTON, DC - Bush-Cheney '04 Campaign Spokesperson Danny Diaz issued the following statement regarding Senators John Kerry and John Edwards' newly announced travel to Colorado: "Senators John Kerry and John Edwards represent the most divisive, out of the mainstream ticket in the history of presidential politics. Never before has the Democrat Party chosen the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate and the fourth most liberal member of that body. The Kerry/Edwards ticket is wrong to oppose tax reform for Colorado families; wrong to oppose No Child Left Behind education reform; wrong to oppose a prescription drug benefit for Colorado...

    WASHINGTON, DC— Bush-Cheney ’04 Regional Spokesperson Danny Diaz issued the following statement regarding Arizona’s economic recovery: “The economy in Arizona continues to create opportunities for working families and businesses through job creation [and falling unemployment]. Arizona’s economy created 3,000 jobs in May alone and the nation added 248,000 new jobs in May. The president’s policies continued to strengthen job growth and have created an average of 257,000 new jobs each month this year. “And while our economy grows, John Kerry continues his politics of pessimism by talking down the significance of Americans finding 1.4 million new jobs in the past...

    A Los Angeles photographer has been charged with trying to extort more than £2m from Cameron Diaz over topless pictures he took of the star when she was a struggling actress. John Rutter had claimed Diaz had signed a contract giving him possession of the 1992 pictures and allowing their release. The Charlie's Angels star said the signature had been forged. Rutter has been charged with attempted extortion, attempted grand theft and perjury and two counts of forgery. He is being held on $250,000 bail pending an arraignment. Last week a judge ordered the photos and a videotape of Diaz...

    The Big Payback Diaz, Morissette among celebs returning ill-gotten gains JULY 17--Three years after the conviction of Dana Giacchetto and the implosion of his New York investment firm, former celebrity clients of the disgraced money manager are beginning to pay back money that Giacchetto improperly diverted to them from the accounts of his less-fabulous clients, federal court records show. As a result of "fraudulent conveyance" lawsuits filed last year by the court-appointed trustee handling the Cassandra Group's bankruptcy, Cameron Diaz, Alanis Morissette, actor Tim Roth, screenwriter Richard LaGravenese, and Richard Lovett, president of the powerful Creative Artists Agency, have all...

    LOS ANGELES -- Cameron Diaz is seeking an injunction barring the release of photographs taken at a private modeling session over a decade ago, before she was a star. In the lawsuit, the 30-year-old "Charlie's Angels" star claims she didn't sign a photo release and that a release produced by the photographer is a forgery, her publicist, Brad Cafarelli, said Tuesday. He wouldn't describe the nature of the pictures. Photographer John Rutter told the syndicated news program "Inside Edition" he had contacted Diaz's lawyers to offer them the photos before he sold them to any media outlets. "This was a...

    An important but little-noticed Federal lawsuit is scheduled to go to court in February. Nearly six years four agents of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Narcotics Investigation(BNI) filed a civil rights complaint in the US DIstrict Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. The lawsuit alleged that "certain persons in the State Department and the CIA" had obstructed an investigation of the Dominican narcotics cartel, which controlledmuch of the trade in cocaine and heroin along the eastern seaboard. There is also evidence that the Dominican narcotics cartel may have indirectly financed the terrorist network that carried out the first World Trade...

    His campaign manager has been fired. His bank account is all but empty. The political party that wooed him to its side has left him at the altar. And polls show his opponent is so far out in front, he is barely visible. Cop-turned-politician Eddie Diaz has faced tough odds before, including when he took eight bullets from an assailant's gun and struggled back from near death and partial paralysis. But with just three weeks before Election Day, Diaz's hopes of parlaying his well-publicized struggle into a congressional seat have never seemed dimmer.

    NEW YORK - A police officer who died at the World Trade Center left a wife and four children - and, says another woman, two more children she secretly bore him. Officer Liam Callahan's wife, Joan, learned about the other woman when Kimberly Diaz applied for death benefits in the fall, newspapers reported. Since then, Mrs. Callahan has provided Diaz with DNA evidence taken from her children that could help Diaz prove that the Port Authority officer also fathered her two sons. The DNA will be compared to DNA samples taken from Diaz's children. "My boys are finally going to...

    <p>Cop-turned-candidate Eddie Diaz stormed U.S. Rep. Ric Keller's Orlando office with TV cameras in tow Wednesday and demanded that his opponent return contributions from beleaguered WorldCom.</p> <p>Diaz, a Democrat running against Keller in the 8th Congressional District, said Keller owes it to "working families" to give back $8,500 in campaign contributions he has accepted from WorldCom, which on Sunday became the largest corporation in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy.</p> <p>"It's a debacle," Diaz said. "It's thievery -- it's money that belongs to certain people, and it certainly doesn't belong to Ric."</p>
