    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Tracy Morgan has sued Wal-Mart over last month's highway crash that seriously injured him and killed a fellow comedian. The lawsuit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, claims Wal-Mart was negligent when a driver of one of its tractor-trailers rammed into Morgan's limousine van. The complaint claims the retail giant should have known the driver had been awake for over 24 hours, and that his commute of 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware was "unreasonable." It also alleges the driver fell asleep at the wheel. "As a result...

    WESLACO - The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites will be turned into a housing complex for young illegal immigrants.

The group says children will receive basic education, as well as mental and medical services at the site. BCFS officials say facility will allow for faster transfers from Border Patrol custody. The project is part of the relocation and expansion of the BCFS location in Harlingen. They expect to have the facility operational by Oct. 1.

    Republicans say the National Guard could free up border patrol agents to do their job. The White House says the problem is not apprehensions because child migrants actually want to be caught. WASHINGTON — Lawmakers in Texas, including Gov. Rick Perry (R), as well as Republicans in Congress are urging President Obama to send America’s prime military reserve to the southern border to help handle the child-migrant surge. The president has been resisting, but this week, he opened the door – a crack. No action from the commander in chief yet, but Mr. Obama did tell Governor Perry during his...

    Washington Post ^ | July 11 | Christopher Ingraham
    Last night a circuit court judge in Florida voided the state's congressional map, citing a "secret, organized campaign" by Republican operatives that "made a mockery of the Legislature's transparent and open process of redistricting." The ruling concluded that District 5, held by Democrat Corrine Brown, and District 10, held by Republican Dan Webster, will need to be redrawn. From a purely practical standpoint, this means redrawing any surrounding districts as well, and possibly many of the state's 27 districts overall. "If one or more districts do not meet constitutional muster, then the entire act is unconstitutional," Judge Terry Lewis wrote....

    CHRISTIANS should be encouraged to marry Muslims as a way of tackling Islamophobia, a senior peer claimed today. Lord Scott, a former Supreme Court Judge, cited his own family - in which two of his four children married Muslims - as an example of how interfaith families can thrive. The peer, who sits as a crossbencher in the Lords, made the comments during a debate on how to improve relations between the Muslim community and other faith groups in the UK. He said: “Of my two sons one has become a Muslim and of my two daughters one of those...

Now, no matter how forcefully I say it, there is still a faction on the right who will take my failure to immediately call for Obama’s impeachment as their chance to damn me as a RINO, a traitor, a fifth-columnist, a secret Obama supporter, a squish, and a sellout to the Evil Establishment.

Dean likened the political stalemate over this issue and in general in Washington to McCarthyism in the 1950s: "It reminds me of the 'who lost China' debate...where one side is frothing at the mouth and finding communists under every bed; and the other side – including some reasonable Republicans...actually trying to run the country." Matthews endorsed the former Vermont governor's take, and targeted fiscal conservatives/the Tea Party as somehow...

    When we talk about combat aircraft that are so ugly they are brutishly beautiful, aircraft like the A-10, B-52 and the Mi-24 come to mind. Yet an obscure Russian close air support aircraft that lost a competition to the now notorious Sukhoi Su-25 may take the trophy for the must gorgeously ugly combat jet of all time. By the late 1960s Russia was looking for a new jet aircraft that would be dedicated to close air support (CAS). After studying close air support scenarios and data collected since WWII it was clear that the fast, swept-wing jets and heavy bombers...

    A judge has suggested that now that same-sex marriages and homosexuality have become more accepted the next logical step could be to legitimize incestuous relationships. “A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” Judge Garry Neilson from Australia said. Neilson compared incest to homosexuality, saying that such relationships were once illegal. “If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you’d invariably have, they would...

    Undermanned and overworked crews can’t keep Littoral Combat Ships running Did you ever work a job that required two people, but your stingy employer insisted that one was enough? Then you understand the problem with the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship. One of the LCS’s supposed advantages is its much smaller crew compared to other vessels. Where a Navy frigate might have 200 sailors, the frigate-size LCS has just 40—although, to be fair, two different 40-person crews take turns running the ship. LCS is a jack-of-all-trades warship that can carry different modules for various missions—anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare or mine-hunting. The...

    College campuses often seem culturally biased against non-liberals. But in some cases, political bias so deeply and obviously pervades official campus policy that no one can even defend it when challenged. On that front, the Young Americans for Liberty declared victory in their legal battle with the University of Michigan after administrators agreed to pay out $14,000 and revise discriminatory funding policies. Last year, YAL asked the university for $1,000 to bring anti-affirmative action activist Jennifer Gratz to speak on campus.

Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) embarrassed herself, but staying out of the news isn't good for her livelihood, which relies on lucrative speeches, television appearances and a regular stream of news accounts of her Facebook posts where she offers up her special brand of leadership. So since things have been a bit quiet for her, this week she insisted that everyone who resists impeaching President Obama must go. In her words, "we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment," and this other...

    Americans should live in fear of the Supreme Court, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. Hammering a pair of recent rulings related to birth control access, the House minority leader suggested the conservative-leaning court is stealing women's freedoms when it comes to making healthcare choices. “We should be afraid of this court. That five guys should start determining what contraceptions are legal or not. … It is so stunning,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol. Pelosi said last week's Supreme Court ruling that the birth control mandate under President Obama's healthcare reform law is a violation of...

    A Mississippi man who accused the Thad Cochran campaign of paying African-Americans to vote for the senator in his primary runoff last month is walking back his story. Stevie Fielder told California-based blogger Charles C. Johnson he was asked to buy votes for $15 a pop in the June 24 runoff between Cochran and state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Now, he's saying he never paid anyone to vote, saying the conversations he claimed he had with Cochran campaign staffers Kirk Sims and Amanda Shook were "hypothetical" and the interview with Johnson was edited.

    Right-wing anti-government militias are taking up positions along the U.S. – Mexico border in an effort to secure it because the groups feel the government is not able, according to reports. ‘Operations Secure Our Border’ is being led by 37-year-old truck driver Chris Davis, a former Army private who last served in 2001. Davis supported Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy, and his group is only one of many setting up shop in Texas. Other groups in the state call themselves ‘Patriots,’ ‘Oathkeepers’ and ‘Three Percenters,’ according to the San Anotnio Express-News. They are active on social media and use the platforms...

    IRONSIDES is an authoritative/recursive DNS server pair that is provably invulnerable to many of the problems that plague other servers. It achieves this property through the use of formal methods in its design, in particular the language Ada and the SPARK formal methods tool set. Code validated in this way is provably exception-free, contains no data flow errors, and terminates only in the ways that its programmers explicitly say that it can. These are very desirable properties from a computer security perspective. IRONSIDES is not a complete implementation of DNS. In particular, it does not support zone transfers or all...

    The fight over what to do with thousands of kids flooding the U.S. border could be coming to the Quad Cities. Today, President Obama asked Congress for $3.7 billion to deal with this issue. He wants to build facilities for the illegal immigrants, strengthen border patrol and hire more judges and lawyers to speed up the deportation process. Right now, the government is using three military bases for the kids. There's a dispute about just how long the facilities will be obligated to care for and house the children. Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba is saying the Quad Cities shouldn't turn...

    Lets start with the obvious. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, George Soros, and Mark Zuckerburg . Probably others but those seem to be the most prominent. For good measure, add Harry Reids Sugar Daddy. -- Personally lobby them for Billions. Not millions, but Billions. Congress should then pass a law to tax the Super Duper rich .com Billionaires that can't be offset by anything. For good measure, make sure the public knows exactly how much each has donated. --- Microsoft, Google and all the other corporations that are screaming for amnesty. -- Congress should pass a law having a hefty tax...

    As the nation deals with an immigration crisis at its borders, businesses are stepping up their calls for reform. The Obama administration is desperately trying to deal with the influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing into the United States. The crisis may deflect Congress' attention away from doing anything meaningful over the nation's immigration laws, said Thomas Donohue, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, which represents the largest U.S. businesses. But the group still renewed its push for immigration reform.

    During a live Senate hearing this afternoon, Sen. Tom Harkin (D) said that while listening to the testimony about children crossing the border illegally, it sounds to him as though many are saying that the solution to the problem is to “round them up and ship them back like cattle,” a sentiment with which he strongly disagrees. He said that the children have the right to have their health and dignity protected with Health and Human Services under the law. The hearing was held to request 3.7 billion dollars in supplemental funds to help stem the tide of incoming children...

    President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” Tribe told the Fiscal Times. “But I wouldn’t bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare.” The law’s latest legal problem is that, as written, people who enroll in Obamacare through the federal exchange aren’t eligible for subsidies. The text of the law only provides subsidies...
