'I'm a goose' - Australian scrumhalf Nick Phibbs apologises for urinating ON bar in Sydney while

dressed as a cow.

I guess he'll have to turn the udder cheek....

Australian scrumhalf Nick Phibbs has apologised, and is prepared to accept any punishment, for urinating on a bar at the Woollahra Hotel in Sydney.

The Waratahs number 9 was escorted from the bar at 9.45pm on April 21 after committing the disgusting act. He was celebrating with friends on his stag night at the time. A witness has said he was dressed as a cow.

"I'm a goose," Phipps said today. "If I'm going to do the crime, I'll definitely pay the time. It's always been my character – I'll stand up and accept the responsibility. I was a bloody idiot. I want everyone to know how sorry I am.

"It's certainly not something I was proud of, because it's not who I am or what we represent as a team.

"I want to apologise to my team-mates, our organisation and our commercial partners, staff, patrons of the Woollahra Hotel, our fans and supporters for the embarrassment this may have caused.`


He admitted to having very little recollection of the incident.

"I certainly remember just after the incident and beforehand," Phipps said. "It was something that happened for a few seconds and some of the boys grabbed me."

The 61-test Wallaby is the club captain of the Waratahs and there is a chance Phipps will have that role stripped.

Michael Avenatti and what he seemed to suggest re Elliott Briody. Did anyone get that on MJ ?

Avenatti stated that the 3 names given out to the judge (who Cohen represented over the last 3 years) were

Donald Trump
Sean Hannity


no, not Elliott Briody, but the Trump Organisation.

It was Cohen's lawyers who put out the Briody thing, that Cohen had paid a Playboy playmate $1.5m when she got pregnant, and subsequently aborted.

The implication I took from what he said was this was a cover story, and it was Trump who got her pregnant, and it was the Trump organisation who paid up. Briody was covering for Trump.

Did i get this wrong ?

New Jersey lawmakers vote to reinstate Obama Care individual mandate

New Jersey lawmakers have sent a bill to the governor that would reinstate ObamaCare's individual mandate after Congress repealed it late last year.

If signed by Gov. Phil Murphy (D), New Jersey would become the first state to issue a statewide health insurance requirement following Congress's repeal of the rule that most people acquire health insurance or pay a fine, which doesn't take effect until 2019.

The bill would require those without insurance pay a fine equal to 2.5 percent of their household income or $695 per adult and $347 per child, whichever is greater.
State lawmakers said it's an attempt to stabilize New Jersey's insurance markets by ensuring healthy people continue to purchase coverage.

The bill could affect about 275,000 people who get insurance through New Jersey's individual market.

Health experts have worried Congress's repeal of ObamaCare's individual mandate could destabilize the insurance markets, leading to premium increases.

Other states, such as Maryland and California, have also considered passing statewide mandates.

Michael Cohen, the GOP donor, the abortion and the NDA



On a completely seperate note, Michael Cohen must miss the days when Steve Wynn was his RNC Finance Chairman. Oh what fun they had.
