    Presidential candidate Vermin Supreme, who is known for wearing a rubber boot on his head, currently has received more write-in votes in the New Hampshire primary than former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore. Supreme, whose campaign platform includes compulsory tooth-brushing and giving every American a free pony, has received 229 votes for the Democratic nomination with 86% of precincts reporting. Gilmore, who served as a county prosecutor and state attorney general before becoming governor of Virginia, currently has received 120 votes for the Republican nomination with 85% of precincts reporting.
  • Donald Trump's success in Jacksonville coming at expense of Jeb Bush

    Florida Times Union ^ | 2/10/16 | Phillip Heilman
    Jeb Bush unveiled his "Jeb Can Fix It" presidential campaign last November during a low-key event in Jacksonville, a city that at least on paper should be solid Bush country. The city's prominent donors back him. He played a role in one of the city's major sources of civic pride, bringing the Jaguars NFL franchise to town. His son, who held a fundraiser here, attended local private school The Bolles School. And yet it was Donald Trump who attracted thousands to The Jacksonville Landing's courtyard in October for a characteristically wide-ranging, 80-minute speech that reverberated through downtown. That contrast may...

    (Ivar Giaever) Nobel Prize Winner to Obama: You Are Wrong on Climate Change Surprising and Shocking! At a speech in Lindau, Germany, before scientists from 90 countries, Giaever disagreed with the President when Obama stated that "no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change." The Nobel Laureate's response? "He is dead wrong!" Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever told President Obama, whom he had endorsed for President in 2008, that he has it all wrong about climate change. It's not mankind's fault at all, but a normal process with little negative impact. The scientist cited statistics which showed...

    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, coming off a fifth place finish in New Hampshire's Republican primary contest, slammed Ted Cruz for the rival campaign's deception of voters during last week's Iowa caucuses. "His campaign was sending out recorded calls to activists in Iowa telling them Ben Carson has dropped out, inform everyone at the caucus site," Rubio told CBS News' Major Garrett Wednesday. "It was a concerted effort that I'm sure they planned to execute on something in order to influence the election." Rubio was referring to the false rumor Cruz's campaign propagated by implying Carson was withdrawing from the...

The Missionaries of Mercy, nicknamed the super-confessors, were given the special license for the Vatican's Jubilee year, which ends in November. Grave sins include defiling consecrated bread and wine, violating confessional secrecy, and plotting to kill a pope. ...

    Last year state legislators overwhelmingly overrode Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto, allowing The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to become law. As the new 60-day session begins, West Virginians for Life (WVFL) is hoping the state’s legislative body will pick up where it left off and pass another pro-life bill. This time around, WVFL is seeking passage of a Dismemberment Abortion Ban. Recent undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress have shown high-ranking executives of Planned Parenthood abortionists casually discussing the way that they can dismember babies to obtain intact fetal body parts such as heads, hearts, lungs...

    A Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located on Havendale Blvd in Winter Haven, Florida, has closed its doors as of February 1, 2016. Situated inside Spring Lake Square, the Planned Parenthood sat among restaurants, a movie theater, and businesses that fill the earth-tone-colored suburban strip mall. Sidewalk Advocates for Life, which reported the closure, shared that this is the first abortion facility in the group’s short 22-month-history to shut down. The group encouraged its counselors to continue dedicating their time to counseling abortion-minded women, and to advocate on the sidewalks for the preborn.

    The Ohio House of Representatives has made its final vote to approve HB 294, which forbids state health funds from going to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider in the state. If it is signed, which Ohio Governor John Kasich is expected to do, it will cut off the $1.3 million that the state’s affiliate of the abortion giant currently receives per year through the Ohio Department of Health. The same money will still go to support HIV testing, cancer screenings, and violence-against-women programs in the state, just distributed through providers not affiliated with abortion. The bill adds to...

Checkups, appointments and tests are also set to be disrupted as a result of the walkout, which began at 08:00 GMT. Formal talks broke down in January and there is mounting speculation ministers may soon seek to impose a new contract, potentially inflaming the row further. The key sticking point appears to be payments for working on Saturdays. ...

    In open defiance of recent US sanctions on Iran's ballistic missile program, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan on late Tuesday told local media that Tehran will soon be rolling out an upgrade of its nuclear-capable medium-range Emad missiles. The "next generation of Emad with improved precision" will be unveiled in the next Iranian year which starts on March 20, Dehghan said as cited by the semi-official Fars News Agency. Emad is said to have a 1,700 kilometer range, putting Israel and much of eastern Europe squarely in its sights. [...] In light of an Iranian Emad test on October 10,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) directed President Obama to "stop protecting China" in order to more effectively respond to hostile actions from North Korea. Cruz, a presidential candidate, penned the letter to Obama Wednesday to express concern with his policy of "strategic patience" toward North Korea. Earlier, the Texas senator announced that he would vote in favor of legislation that would impose nuclear weapons-related sanctions in North Korea, which is expected to gain passage in the Senate. Cruz outlined several means of more effectively responding to aggressive actions from North Korea, which over the weekend launched a long-range rocket and...

Cruz, dismissed by the media after his Iowa victory, and his third-place finish in New Hampshire, is in the game for the duration. In a Wednesday conversation in Jacksonville with his campaign chairman, Chad Sweet, a wide range of topics came up. Among them: Cruz's strategy for Florida; how he intends to dislodge Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, the Sunshine State's favorite suns; campaign strategy more...

    Syria’s national wealth, infrastructure and institutions have been “almost obliterated” by the “catastrophic impact” of nearly five years of conflict, a new report has found. Fatalities caused by war, directly and indirectly, amount to 470,000, according to the Syrian Centre for Policy Research (SCPR) – a far higher total than the figure of 250,000 used by the United Nations until it stopped collecting statistics 18 months ago. In all, 11.5% of the country’s population have been killed or injured since the crisis erupted in March 2011, the report estimates. The number of wounded is put at 1.9 million. Life expectancy...

    Do you and one friend need to go anywhere — right now? You'll need the Sherp ATV. It's a two-passenger, diesel-powered wilderness-squasher with patented self-inflating tires. With those massive chunks of rubber at each corner, and nearly encompassing the entire side of the truck, the Sherp can easily roll over obstacles as big as 27.5 inches tall. Although it has a small 1.5-liter diesel engine that produces a minuscule 44 horsepower, the Sherp weighs about as much as a Toyota Corolla, so it's just enough to get it up to its 28 mph top speed on land. On water it'll...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- President Barack Obama returned to Springfield Wednesday, addressing members of the Illinois General Assembly amid the state's ongoing budget impasse. The state capital is where President Obama launched his national political career exactly nine years ago. The lame duck/nothing-to-lose president chose the beleaguered Illinois state capitol - and many of his friends for an audience - to make his "building better politics" speech. He focused on the polarization and gridlock in Congress and in legislatures around the country. He called gridlock - and his inability to break it in Washington - his presidency's most frustrating constant....

    The Washington Post published some terrific news last Saturday: The Islamic State's recent defeats on the battlefield signal that its once-vaunted militia army has been hobbled by worsening money problems, desertions and a dwindling pool of fighters, analysts and monitoring groups say. Before you break out the champagne, however, consider the fact that we have heard this before. And not only have we heard it before, but the Washington Post article then engages in revisionist media history: Only a year ago, the Islamic State was seen as a juggernaut -- rich, organized and fielding thousands of motivated fighters -- that...

    In this society following the Lenten requirements of our faith and fasting are not in fashion and are not encouraged. Neither the TV, nor the newspapers will encourage you to to fast during this season. The most they may do, is to report on the Ash Wednesday, and the Holy Week, culminating with Easter (i.e. the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ). What can you do, if you don't have the strong will to fast during the 40 days of Lent. There are various levels of fasting. The earliest Church fasts severely restricted all foods, but this gradually eased. Pope...

    t takes a village to raise a child. Children are being raised in many Arab villages to hate from birth with the ultimate aim and honour of being a shahid – a martyr - if they kill Jews. Their schoolbooks and their media bring them up to believe this. Their teachers, their parents and their whole villages dance and celebrate when Jews are murdered by their own teenagers. It is no accident that their young people are murdering Jews. All efforts to stop this have not worked. The left has failed miserably in its integration efforts. Politicians are afraid of...

    Marco Rubio's campaign seems to have crashed on the rocks because of his...shall we say somewhat repetitive use of the phrase "Obama knows what he's doing", but the truth is, he was 100% right. The reason that so many people scoff at the notion that Obama knows what he's doing is because the very notion of an American leader who seeks to destroy that which he leads is anathema to most rational Americans. And the truth is, Barack Obama doesn't seek to destroy the nation he leads, he seeks to "fundamentally transform" it. Splitting hairs you might say, but...

    JUST IN: Christie's out.---ALSO JUST IN: Fiorina suspends campaign.---No time for a witty lede -- we've got a lot to cover today, so let's dig right in.Democrats first.The Smart Take was that all Hillary Clinton had to do to "win" was to lose by fewer than 20 points in a state which is practically Bernie Sanders' home turf. Yet she failed even that, losing by nearly 22 points. When you look at the numbers beyond those, things actually look worse for Clinton -- and maybe for the Democrats in general.In yesterday's two-person race, Clinton's support actually slipped by a percentage...

    The Times of India reports that the meteorite's blast left a crater 5 feet deep and 2 feet wide. Police recovered a black, pockmarked stone weighing 0.39 ounces, it said. However, NASA scientists in the U.S. said in a public statement that photos of the site were more consistent with "a land based explosion," The New York Times reports. In an email to The New York Times, NASA's Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson explained that death by meteorite impact is so rare that one has never been confirmed in recorded history. "There have been reports of injuries, but even those...

    Police have released footage showing the moment an Arab terrorist stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli jogger in Gush Etzion, and then fled from the scene. His victim, a Jewish man in his 30s, had been running outside the town of Neve Daniel when he was stabbed and seriously injured. He managed to reach the gate of the town, where security guards called an ambulance and initiated a manhunt. Following the attack, security forces closed off the Arab village of Nahalin, where the attacker is believed to have come from and fled to, as part of efforts to track him...

    The Supreme Court is again being asked to weigh in on contested congressional districts for this year’s elections, this time with North Carolina warning the justices Wednesday of potential electoral chaos because of a court order this month. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and state election officials asked the justices to allow them to use the current congressional districts for the coming election while they appeal a ruling last week that found two districts were unconstitutional gerrymanders. The petition went to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the justice assigned to handle such requests from the U.S. Court of Appeals...

    Carly Fiorina is ending her bid for the Republican presidential nomination. The former Hewlett-Packard executive announced the decision on Facebook Wednesday after finishing seventh in New Hampshire's primary. "While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them," Fiorina said in a post. The writing was on the wall after she didn't qualify for last week's ABC News debate, and a last-minute campaign on her behalf to allow her in was unsuccessful. Fiorina's...
