    As the investigation into the gross negligence of Hillary Clintons handling of classified material continues, one anonymous FBI agent says she could be facing 10 years in jail under the Espionage Act. The Act, according to the FBI agent, requires one who discovers the negligence to inform superiors. In the case of the alleged mishandling of classified documents and emails, Clinton would have needed to inform her only superior, the president, and he stated last week that he was not informed. According to the Daily Mail, Obama said flatly during a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday that No, he did...

    Even before divers recovered a handcuffed mans body from the bottom of the Lake of the Ozarks, some retired Water Patrol veterans already suspected what had gone wrong. The problem, they thought, came down to two issues: training and experience. Trooper Anthony Piercy, who arrested 20-year-old Iowan Brandon Ellingson and placed him in handcuffs minutes before he drowned, lacked enough of both on the water, they say. As evidence, they point to his use of the wrong type of life jacket for a handcuffed suspect; how he seemed, according to witnesses, to rush the arrest after one of Ellingsons friends...

    STORRS, Conn. Jubilant fans celebrating UConn's Monday night national basketball championship win smashed a window in an engineering building, broke street lights and overturned furniture inside the school's student union. Campus police had made 30 arrests by 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, while state police had made others and more were expected, said University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen.

No serious injuries had been reported. "By far, most of our...

    SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner today was free to leave his downtown residential building for the first time in three months, having completed 90 days of house arrest. The period of home confinement, which included GPS monitoring, was the result of the 71-year-old's guilty pleas last fall to false imprisonment and battery, stemming from allegations of sexual harassment by three women. The improprieties led the former Democratic congressman to leave office last Aug. 30. Though no longer on house arrest, Filner remains on three years probation.

    The FBI secretly kept tabs on Nicholas Michael Teausant for six months, having a confidential informant meet with him repeatedly in Stockton at breakfast joints, a park and a flea market as the 20-year-old student allegedly spun his vision of jihad against the United States.

    A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected wrongly to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First...

    **SNIP** When a reporter brought up a ticket-fixing scandal within the NYPD that erupted during former Mayor Mike Bloombergs tenure, de Blasios got snappy. I don't even understand the parallel. Ticket fixing is illegal, period. Making an inquiry is perfectly appropriate, ticket fixing is illegal, he shot back at the reporter. **SNIP** Asked if he would do the same again if a similar situation arose, de Blasio didnt say no. I would make my decisions on a case by case basis, he said.

    Barack Obama has been an indefatigable and unstinting supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, as well as of its proxies in the U.S. Thus it is not surprising that U.S. Embassy employees in Cairo would be Brotherhood allies as well. Obama was the target of vociferous criticism during the anti-Brotherhood demonstrations last summer for his uncritical support of the Brotherhood. US Embassy confirms one of its local employees detained, by Rabab Fathy for Youm7 via the Cairo Post, February 11 (thanks to Joyce): -more detail at source
