    BUTTE — Police arrested retired Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill -- who is credited with shooting al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden -- for driving under the influence about 2:30 a.m. Friday, according to the Butte-Silver Bow County sheriff's department O'Neill was found sleeping in a 2005 Nissan Sentra at a Town Pump. The vehicle was running and the back-up lights were on, said Undersheriff George Skuletich. Officers woke him up by opening the car door. They said he appeared under the influence -- confused and somewhat lethargic. He failed a horizontal gaze test at the scene, and other related sobriety tests...
  • Chief Alabama judge would defy Supreme Court in gay marriage ruling

    Washington (CNN)The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court insisted Thursday he will continue to resist efforts to implement same-sex marriage in his state, even if the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage later this year. Chief Justice Roy Moore likened an eventual U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage to the Dred Scott ruling and Plessy v. Ferguson, two 19th century Supreme Court rulings that upheld slavery and segregation, respectively. "If it's an unlawful mandate you can refuse to mandate it. You can dissent to the United States Supreme Court," Moore said in a...
  • Ted Cruz: 'We need to padlock and shut down' the IRS

    07/02/2013 4:06:09 AM PDT · by onyx · 78 replies
    Sen. Ted Cruz is joining Tea Party activists in calling on Congress to abolish the Internal Revenue Service as the freshman lawmaker made the case from tax reform. The Texas Republican on Monday said news that the IRS targeted the nonprofit applications of conservative-leaning political groups was an "inspiration" because of how it has sparked "normal American citizens that are standing up for liberty." In the wake of the IRS scandal, Tea Party groups have repeatedly called for the agency to close its doors, and Cruz, a hero of the conservative movement, echoed their sentiments. "It is a challenge that...

All along the way, thousands of Texans have turned out to honor the life of the deadliest sniper in US military history. ..... [Collection of photos at link.]

    Remember World War One? My grandfather had fought in that war and it seemed like a century ago ... and it was. In two years will be the centennial of the start of the First World War (1914 - 1918). At that time, it was called the Great War, the World War, the War to End all Wars. Only after the start of World War Two was it called World War One. (First World - A Multimedia History of World War One) We see a legacy of the Great War this coming Monday.

This is about a hundred percent; it’s about a hundred percent American. And I will not stand back and watch anyone defang, degrade or destroy that which my father fought for, my older brother, my father-in-law, myself and my nephew and all my friends still in uniform, I will not allow President Obama take the United States of America and destroy it. “So, if that means I’m the number one target...

    In the decade since we went to war, America has rediscovered how fortunate we are to have good men and women willing to put themselves in harm's way so that we might remain free and safe. Some haven't lived to make the return trip home -- men like my own son, Army Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller, who was recognized with the Medal of Honor for his actions in a battle in Afghanistan that cost him his life. The great unspoken fear of families like mine is that the sacrifices of our loved ones will be forgotten once the parades...

    At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of...

    This was written by retired Admiral and U.S. Sen. Jeremiah Denton to an audience at the National Marine Corps Museum Feb. 13th. We are in a struggle for our very survival in America. This book (autobiography, "When Hell Was in Session") presents my ideas of how we can win that struggle. Although the plan is far from complete, I have already concluded that, though we are presently in a bad way, we can indeed come from behind and will win this cultural war. This belief is based partly on the truism that he who is most hungry for victory has...

    Lt. Nick Radosevich had his orders. Soon he would ship out to England and begin bombing targets deep inside Nazi territory. He sought an edge, a good-luck charm. He met a girl. They had some drinks and dinner. Her cocker spaniel had recently delivered puppies. "That's it,'' the handsome 26-year-old pilot said. He picked out a jet black female and named her Penelope — Penny for short. He attached a small metal cylinder to her collar that contained contact information in case Penny should get lost. 2/Lt.
