‘Sen. Craig visited me’ says escort who claimed relationship with Haggard

DENVER – The gay escort whose allegations forced the resignation of nationally renowned evangelist Ted Haggard now says he was also visited by Idaho Sen. Larry Craig.

Craig is the Republican senator who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges earlier this year after his arrest in a Minneapolis airport bathroom for propositioning an undercover police officer.

Mike Jones of Denver appeared on a Palm Springs, California radio show Wednesday night.

Jones was promoting his book on the Haggard affair on the “Bulldog Bill Feingold Show” broadcast on KNWQ-AM when the show went into a commercial break.

It was during that commercial break Wednesday night that Jones made an accusation that Craig had visited him in Denver in February 2005.

A TV news photographer for KESQ-TV, the ABC affiliate in Palm Springs, kept recording as Jones talked about his contact with Craig.

WHO, Project Day Lily, and Gulf War Illness

by Geezer Power …2:35 pm


In their book “Project Day Lily” the Nicolsons tell their personal saga that is intertwined with major events and forces in recent American history. This linear narrative testifies about the strength of authors’ perceptions and convictions. It is also a story of transformation of a couple of scientists into advocates for causes that they believe in so deeply.

In researching this article on Wikipedia I found very little information on Garth Nicholson although he is a leading microbiologist and has been doing work with Gulf War Vets since Poppy Bu$h’s war in 1991, but I did find plenty of information on Professor Simon Wessely

Professor Simon Wessely’s name is known to the thousands of sufferers of chronic illnesses in Britain and abroad who have been hurt by his philosophy. A psychiatrist, for years Wessely has been the outspoken proponent of the view that chronic physical conditions such as Gulf War Illness, ME/chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, multiple chemical sensitivity and others are simply “all in the head” of the sufferer.

Guards from the US security firm Blackwater had not been shot at before they opened fire last month on Iraqi civilians in Baghdad, killing 17 people, according to an official Iraqi investigation into the deaths.

The inquiry, ordered by the prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, described the incident as a deliberate crime and called for those responsible for the deaths to be prosecuted.

Previously, the death toll from the controversial incident on September 16 had been put at 11.

The shooting prompted a wave of outrage in Iraq about the activities of private US security firms protecting diplomats and workers, and calls for those responsible for the deaths to be tried.

The new investigation said 17 people were killed and 23 wounded when Blackwater staff opened fire in a square in Baghdad.
