    An Alexandria, Virginia, tax lobbyist was sentenced to one year in prison today for willfully filing a false tax return, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger for the Eastern District of Virginia. According to court documents, attorney James F. Miller, 67, underreported his gross income on his 2010 through 2014 tax returns by more than $2.2 million. Miller, a tax policy lobbyist and former employee of the Justice Department’s Tax Division, filed multiple false tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These returns omitted...

    So there was this female business executive who was late for a meeting. She is going 65 on a street where the speed limit is 40. A cop pulls her over and says “ma’am, can I please see your license?” She says “I’m sorry, officer, but I got it revoked two years ago for drunk driving.” His brow furrows and he straightens up. “Well, can I please see the registration of your car?” She says “I stole the car and I killed the driver; he’s in the trunk.” “Ma’am, DON’T MOVE, I’m calling for backup.” He mutters furiously into his...
  • Why Christmas is bad for the environment and what you can do about it.

    Christmas is a time of celebration, but once the party's over, plenty of garbage is hauled to the curb. Environmental group Zero Waste Canada estimates that from mid-November to mid-January, the average Canadian generates about 25 per cent more trash than during the rest of the year. The reason: people buy more stuff over the holidays, and a lot of it — from shiny wrapping paper to glittery cards — typically can't go in your recycling blue bin, so it's destined for the landfill. To help Canadians celebrate a greener Christmas this year, here are some of the season's worst...
  • Hillary Clinton Tells Absurd Stories in a Hilarious New 'Bad Lip Reading' (video)

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got the full Bad Lip Reading treatment on Wednesday, and it’s just as hilariously ridiculous as you’d expect from the YouTube channel. The new video, titled "Hillary Stories," shows the 2016 presidential candidate telling bizarre stories that barely make sense, though it’s unclear why we’re just getting the cheeky dub job now. You know, considering the state of things. If you're new to the channel, the series creates absurd voiceovers based on a bad lip reading of what people in the video are saying. (snip) Clinton's stories include such classic yarns as the time...

    An Idaho police department is hailing nurse Alex Wubbels as a hero for standing up to Salt Lake City Detective Jeff Payne, who tried to take blood from a patient without a warrant or the patient’s consent. That patient, it turns out, is William Gray, a reserve officer in Rigby, a city about 15 miles north of Idaho Falls. “The Rigby Police Department would like to thank the nurse involved and hospital staff for standing firm, and protecting Officer Gray’s rights as a patient and victim,” the agency said on Facebook. “Protecting the rights of others is truly a heroic...

    H David Eubank is a former Special Forces Operative turned aid worker. The 56 year old veteran’s Free Burma Rangers aid organization has been in Mosul, Iraq fighting ISIS. He previously was in the military free fall team with the First Special Forces Group, so he is skilled in combat unlike most aid workers. So, when ISIS was firing upon civilians and he saw a little girl about 150 feet away from him, he sprang into action to rescue her. As you can see in the tweeted video below, Eubank is donning only a helmet and a bulletproof vest. He...

A Utah man and his fiancée say a U.S. Marshal booted them Saturday from a Houston flight en route to their Costa Rica wedding after they changed seats without permission — the latest in a string of negative headlines for the bedeviled company.

    He is known in China as the "godfather of real estate," helping lay the groundwork for private homeownership in China, a move that enriched millions and laid the foundations for a vibrant and thriving Chinese middle class. Now, Meng Xiaosu wants a lot of Chinese — the older ones, specifically — to cash out. Older people need to mortgage their homes to address China's looming demographic bust, Mr. Meng argues. Because of China's now-defunct one-child policy and other social trends, the country has a rapidly graying population that someday soon may become too expensive for the Chinese government to support....

    NBC is interrupting the coverage of the opening ceremonies ever few minutes for at least three minutes of really BAD advertisements. But then the opening ceremonies are pretty bad themselves. . . among the worst of the modern era. How many of our Fellow Freepers are finding this as off-putting as I am? Then the Brazilians used it for a huge propaganda push for the dire consequences of Global Warming, not even "Climate Change!" Good Grief. . . Comments?

    Trump has long insisted he can’t release his tax returns because they’re currently under review, reiterating this position on Wednesday at a news conference in Florida. But that’s not stopping Democrats (and Republicans) from wanting to know what’s in them. Some donors have even offered rewards for their release. Moishe Mana, a top fundraiser for Clinton, has offered to give $1 million to the charity of Trump's choice if he makes them public. He joins an unnamed Republican donor working with Clinton ally David Brock who has made a similar offer of $5 million. "Through his financial documents, we are...

    On the Fox News Channel's Super Tuesday coverage, GOP presidential candidate Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% stated that fellow candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% had a "bad night" on Super Tuesday and wondered, if Cruz "cannot sweep on Super Tuesday...where in this country is he going to win?" While he would win Florida and "other winner take all states." Rubio added that he wouldn't get out even if he didn't win Florida and plans to campaign in all 50 states. Rubio said, "I think the analysis has to be re-calibrated here. First of all, this...
  • Did Twitter Exec Censor #WhichHillary In Advance of Sunday Fundraiser, Key Primary?

    /. ^ | 2/26/2016 | Unknown
    In a truly egregious move yesterday, Twitter suspended the account responsible for #WhichHillary, activist @GuerrillaDems. Twitter also removed #WhichHillary from trending status, which is odd, considering the hashtag received more than 450,000 tweets in less than 24 hours. Twitter now says the suspension of @GuerillaDems was a mistake. Although this may just be a coincidence, it isn't the first time Twitter has exerted political control. Many users think it is a demonstrable conflict of interest, in light of Twitter Executive Chairman Omid Kordestani's Sunday, 2/28 fundraiser with Clinton.

    Department of Veterans Affairs leaders have shuffled nearly 100 hospital administrators to three or more cities each in the last eight years, often to deal with underperforming directors whom they could not fire, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis. The list of VA employees with unusual workplace moving patterns includes infamous names like Diana Rubens, who was a D.C. based administrator until she created a job for herself with less work and the same $181,000 salary near her family in Philadelphia. Then she billed VA for nearly $300,000 in relocation costs. It also provides a roadmap for a...

    To fire a government employee, all you need is the will and the skill. This may sound simplistic given all the protections granted to civil servants and the complexities of federal human resources case law, but it’s true. What does it mean to have the will? It means having the strength to remove a poor employee when it is the right thing to do.
