Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on the Sports Junkies radio again in Washington – ‘Women love money’

Rob Ford on CBS Sports Junkies 106.7

Toronto, Canada – Mayor Rob Ford called into the Sports Junkies radio show in Washington, DC on Thursday and said, “Women love money” in reference to what he’s giving his wife for Christmas. “You give ’em a couple thousand bucks and they’re happy.”

This is the second time he’s been on the local CBS radio station and has invited the hosts Eric Bickel and John-Paul Flaim to come and visit Toronto, and spoke about his love for football.

Here is the apology Rob Ford read at City Council this week.

Rob Ford Mayor of Toronto goes on Washington, DC Sports radio, denies offering money and car for video of him smoking crack cocaine

Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford goes on Sports Junkies radio in Washington, DC radio today and says “it’s a lie” that he offered $5000 and a car for the video of him smoking crack cocaine.

To listen to the show on 106.7 The Fan CLICK HERE for the 25 minute interview.

UPDATE: Not only did Rob Ford say on The Fan that it was a lie, now his brother counselor Doug Ford claims he did not use heroine in an article in the Toronto Star today.

It’s getting harder and harder to know who to believe, when anyone from the Ford family speaks. His sister has admitted that she was a drug addict many years ago and it has been rumored that Doug Ford sold hashish when he was much younger.

The two brothers have announced they will be holding a YouTube show in the near future and we will be able to hear the stock answers and talking points they continue to make, over and over.

Despite all the controversies, Rob Ford has insisted he will still run in the municipal elections next October 2014, even though his Ford Nation in the western part of Toronto are all falling against him.

News media websites that restrict viewing, secret fix to get around blocked views – FREE

Toronto, Canada – The new trend on many newspaper websites have restricted viewing to only ten views per month. I have uncovered a secret fix to get around this greedy practice by National newspapers.

It’s not only happening within the Toronto area but throughout the world where daily papers are charging upwards to $10 per month to view their website online. When newspapers started putting their newspaper online they thought it was a great idea, since they place advertising all over each page. They got greedy and wanted to start charging for the online content, and nearly all of them have started to charge, unless you already have home delivery.

Don’t be fooled by the introductory offer of 99 cents, it is for the first month only.

Here’s the fix. Most papers allow you to view the start page without interruption. Once you click a story, a box pops up telling you if you have viewed more than 10 stories for the month. All you have to do is copy a story headline and paste it into another google search browser, and it allows you to read the story you are interested in.

Do the papers tell you this? Not likely, they are just getting way too greedy since the online paper still has advertising, and there is no reason to pay anything extra for this content.

Rob Ford tackles councillor at Toronto City Hall

The never ending childs play continues at Toronto City Council as Mayor Ford mimics another councillor drinking and driving and gets caught by the teacher.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on SNL ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearing LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night, will he resign?

Toronto, Canada – November 17/2013 – Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford has become an international celebrity for all the wrong reasons, as he was showcased last night on SNL (Saturday Night Live)

Bobby Moynihan played the part of Mayor Rob Ford perfectly. However the skit was so real Moynihan injured his ankle and was unable to attend the red carpet screening of his new movie Delivery Man, Sunday night.

He just attended a taping of his new TV show Ford Nation today at Sun News Network in downtown Toronto. The show will premiere on Toronto area channels and across Canada Monday night at 8 p.m.

He has also been scheduled to appear LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night at 8 p.m. Cooper will no doubt let him get away with anything, as he usually asks the tough questions.

Ford has a tough day ahead as he is scheduled to attend City Council Monday as the full council will be in attendance and they plan on further restricting the powers of the mayor.

After he admitted smoking crack cocaine last week and the revelations of his “drunken stupor’s” the council has been on a constant witch hunt to remove him as Mayor but it’s not possible.

The Municipal Act/City of Toronto Act, does not allow for impeachment or recall and the only way he can currently be removed from office is if he resigns or is convicted and sentenced to a jail term.

Rob Ford UPDATE: Toronto Mayor ‘Eats lots of pu$$y at home’ uncensored ‘Pu$$y’ video

Toronto, Canada – November 15/2013 – Self confessed crack cocaine user Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has had a bad couple of weeks, and he admits, it’s all his own doing. But he has no plans on resigning or stepping aside for any reason. He even plans on starting his next election campaign for the mayoral race in October 2014 in January, if you can believe it.

He admits, if he was not mayor, and some other councillor did what he was doing, he would not hesitate to take action against them in the way his fellow councillors are coming against him. Friday at City council, they almost unanimously voted (passed 40-2) to have powers taken away from him as Mayor. The two votes against, were the Ford brothers.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair ‘disappointed’

According to Toronto city rules, the mayor cannot be removed from office unless he is convicted and sentenced of a criminal office while serving as mayor. Unlike many American mayors, Toronto’s mayor is not the head of the Police Department and has no say on their operations.

He has been requested by Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair to answer questions about his part-time driver who has been charged with extortion in the case of the infamous ‘crack smoking video.’ He (Ford) flatly refused to be questioned by the police.

He also reported he is starting a new show on SunTV Monday night along with his younger brother councillor Doug Ford just after finishing his highly rated radio show on CFRB Radio in Toronto, last week.

Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto should resign now, or at the very least, step aside immediately

UPDATE: November 14/2013 – Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto has not hit rock bottom yet, but he’s getting close. In a LIVE TV interview at city hall he made an uncensored comment about someones ‘pu$$y’ and be warned, it is uncensored and very graphic, even the reporters were taken back. It was reported today his brother councilor Doug Ford said the two will be starting a TV show next week. The gift that keeps giving, no end in sight. Check out the comments on YouTube, quite extraordinary.

Toronto, Canada – Yes, our Mayor Rob Ford  is a ‘crackhead’ and although he never admitted it back in May 2013 when a video surfaced, he did finally admit it yesterday. He says “it happened when I was in one of my drunken stupors” (plural) and “I’m not an addict” which is a bit of a stretch, since Mayor Ford, you are a liar and a crackhead and an embarrassment to our city. Of course it has no reflection on the people of Toronto, but it does draw negative attention to our great city. Ford even went as far to say “I have nothing left to hide” which again is a big stretch. This may never end soon, and the worldwide media and comedians are having a field day with this revelation.

“I have smoked crack cocaine” said Rob Ford and he went on to say he would still be seeking re-election next October when his current term ends. He must have been on crack when he made that comment. Just what everyone needs for their desk or for the kids at Christmas, a Rob Ford bobblehead. The only thing is it doesn’t show him smoking crack, and barely looks like him, but hundreds of people lined up today at City Hall to get the first thousand available. For a larger view of the bobblehead, CLICK HERE.

This video above is from China about world events and their take on almost anything. They got some parts correct but Toronto police do not wear RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) uniforms. UPDATE: November 13/2013 – It’s been reported Mayor Rob Ford has many other skeletons in his closet and at full city council meeting today he was told to get help immediately.

UPDATE: Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto and Star reporter Daniel Dale peaking over Ford’s backyard fence

Toronto, Canada – Mayor Rob Ford of  Toronto is a little upset that a Toronto Star reporter was sneaking around his backyard fence in the early evening and he rushed at him, while he was peeking over the fence, scaring the ‘shit’ out of him.
UPDATE – December 17/13 – Mayor Rob Ford made a ‘kinda’ apology today at City Hall to Daniel Dale.
Another take on the, so called apology by the mayor from DiManno of the Toronto Star.
Latest UPDATE: Toronto Police Service investigated the accusations and decided not to charge Daniel Dale with anything. I still don’t think he did the right thing.
Since Mayor Rob Ford has been elected, the Toronto Star has done nothing short of hounding him, and trying to dig up any dirty stuff they can, because he won the election and they did not approve.
Yes, but the people approved, and we are the ones that elect politicians, not the Star, or any other newspaper.
Since his earlier attacks in the Star, he has stopped talking to Toronto Star reporters, and I find that troublesome, since the mayor should talk to all media outlets, whether he agrees what they have to say or not.
I posted this comment on one of the Star stories, yet it never made it into the paper, maybe because it made too much sense and the Star didn’t agree. But it seems when a ‘scandal’ regarding Rob Ford, the Star leave the comments section open for weeks, but normally they shut them down after one, two days or when the comment numbers get around 100.
It will be interesting to see how long you leave these comments open, because nobody likes what your reporter did.
To say he has won awards, has nothing to do with it.
It’s sleazy, sneaky, and just not right.
I am not even a big Ford supporter, but if anyone does something like this, leave it to the other media, the Star has an agenda, and this makes it even more clear.
What Ford is doing by not talking to the Star is not right, I want our Mayor to talk to all the people, and that means all the media, he is not right either, but what your reporter did, was low and disgusting.
Grow up, both of you. He must talk to all the media and the Star must act professional. What added info could he gather from peeking over Ford’s fence that would relate to the story he is writing?
The comments in the most recent stories about the peeking over the backyard fence by Star reporter Daniel Dale, most of the comments have been behind Ford, and suggest the Star went too far. The reason Dale was sneaking around, is because he ‘says’ he was investigating a plan by the Mayor to buy some land behind his house which is now city parkland. It’s not clear how he (Dale) can prove peeking over the fence, to get the story. UPDATE: Here is a map of the parkland, (click map to enlarge) that Mayor Ford has suggested he wants to buy. But all request by citizens have been declined in the past, to allow citizens to buy city parkland. It’s going to full city council now for a final decision.
But strangely when it is a positive story about Mayor Ford, they shut the comments section down quickly. Does the Toronto Star have an agenda? You bet, they don’t like him and it shows.
This post was originally put up in May 2012 and recently updated with new videos since Rob Ford alledged that Daniel Dale was a ‘pedophile’ in his interview on Vision TV.
