    ďFive-term incumbent Mayor Chris Louras of Rutland, Vermont was defeated this Town Meeting Day. He lost to Alderman Dave Allaire by a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent. Allaire swept all four wards,Ē WCAX reported Tuesday night. ďLouras had beaten Allaire in two previous mayoral elections,Ē Seven Days Vermont reported. It was not even close on Tuesday, as Louras (pictured) was crushed in a humiliating defeat that was as much a rejection of his personal character as it was of his pro-refugee policies.

    A recently revealed connection between Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a local Virginia politician and the FBI exposes, at the very least, another deceptive conflict of interest that was likely intended to help protect the viability of Hillary Clintonís presidential ambitions. These politicians believe they can get away with such actions because they trust that they can count on a complicit mainstream media to cover for their corruption. A case in point is the funding McAuliffe arranged for Dr. Jill McCabe, the wife of the future deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe. McAuliffe steered nearly $500,000 from his political action...

Slim, a Mexican telecom tycoon whose net worth of nearly $80 billion makes him the second richest man in the world, became the top shareholder of the New York Times earlier this year after he doubled his shares to take control of 16.8 percent of the company.

    We should be glad that 2015 is passing into memory, because it was a year when we could barely hold it together. It was a year when we freaked out over symbols and scared ourselves with fake statistics. It was a year when the facts weren't allowed to get in the way of a good, overwrought slogan. It was a year when we convinced ourselves that Earth was nearly beyond saving. It was a year of the safe space and micro-aggression. It was, in short, a year of hysteria. By now, we should be familiar with the workings of hysteria,...

    2015 has been an historic year for oil markets, one that few will forget. At the beginning of the year, crude oil was well on its way to the lowest point since the financial crisis, dropping into the $40s in January. Prices bounced around, rebounded into the $60s by early summer, and then declined again for the rest of the year. As we close the books on 2015, crude oil is hovering just above an 11-year low point. Here’s a quick review of some of the key developments from 2015

    Sometimes we are accused -- believe it or not -- of being overly negative in our annual Year in Review. Critics say we ignore the many positive events in a given year and focus instead on the stupid, the tragic, the evil, the disgusting, the Kardashians. OK, critics: We have heard you. This year, instead of dwelling on the negatives, we're going to start our annual review with a List of the Top Ten Good Things That Happened in 2015. Ready? Here we go: 1. We didn't hear that much about Honey Boo Boo. 2. OK, we'll have to get...

    London (dpa) - British astronaut Tim Peake has apologized for dialling the wrong number from space. "I'd like to apologise to the lady I just called by mistake saying 'Hello, is this planet Earth?' - not a prank call ... just a wrong number!" Peake posted on Twitter. Peake, 43, a former helicopter pilot, arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) on December 15. He was accompanied by American Tim Kopra, 52, and Russian Yury Malenchenko, 53. On Friday, the ISS passes over the Spanish-French border soon after sunset in England, Peake wrote on his blog. And stargazers are in...

    **SNIP** The watchdog says Clinton has displayed similarly corrupt behavior on the campaign trail. The group has asked the IRS to investigate whether Clinton violated State Department rules when her family foundation made payments of nearly $350,000 to her failed 2008 campaign to rent Clinton's email list after she failed to secure the Democratic nomination. At the time of the transactions, Clinton's State Department position prohibited her from doing certain types of fundraising on behalf of the campaign. FACT is also requesting the Federal Elections Commission investigate the current Clinton campaign after it received an email list of 4 million...
