    (CNN)Some time in May 2014, Paul Overby, an American writer in his 70's, disappeared as he was traveling between Khost in Afghanistan and North Waziristan in Pakistan -- a region rife with the Taliban and terror groups such as al Qaeda. He has not been heard from since. On Wednesday, his wife went public for the first time with his disappearance, providing a statement to CNN and other media outlets. . . Overby's wife, who asked not to be identified by name, last heard from her husband on May 16, 2014, as he was preparing to cross the border into...

    “I can hurt you and get away with it.” That’s a far more apt description of Michelle Obama, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in darkened print who hurt so many Americans—and got away with it Former First Lady Michelle Obama has one-upped Midterms’ mysteriously elusive Blue Wave by missing the entire boat. Obama, whose non-profit “When We All Vote” initiative with Tom Hanks and other activist celebrities turned out to be non-productive in the run-up to Midterm Elections, thinks Election 2016 was all about her and her feelings. It was, of course instead all about an entire nation and its...

    Here is the full text of the masterpiece. I will let the reader read it and enjoy it. Here There Be Tygers by Ray Bradbury "You have to beat a planet at its own game," said Chatterton." Get in and rip it up, kill its snakes, poison its animals, dam its rivers, sow its fields, depollinate its air, mine it, nail it down, hack away at it, and get the blazes out from under when you have what you want. Otherwise, a planet will fix you good. You can't trust planets. They're bound to be different, bound to be bad,...
  • Politico Skips Real Reason Woodward's 'Fear' Flopped in Washington

    Newsbusters ^ | September 19, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Journalist Jeff Greenfield, writing in the September 17 Politico magazine, somehow can't figure out the real reason "Why Woodward's 'Fear' Flopped in Washington." Greenfield makes a light attempt to find out the reason for the flop but seems to be unable to see the all too obvious.  So let us join Greenfield as he stumbles around while ignoring the very large elephant in the room whose stink is something that liberals don't want to dwell on, which is that Woodward couldn't find evidence of Trump-Russia collusion:

    The Hill ^ | September 13, 2018 | Joe Concha
    Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm...

    American conservative political commentator Glenn Beck is staging a nationwide intervention. That alone should give people reason to fear for the the state of our nation. But seriously, the guy who has spent plenty of time on TV crying and stirring up scandal and conspiracy theories on his radio show, thinks the country is addicted to rage, which just so happens to be the name of his new book. Beck seems to have some self-awareness that he has contributed to the problem. “After learning the hard way about the importance of thinking before speaking, Glenn invites audiences to have intimate...

    Poor Omarosa, her fifteen minutes of fame are now long gone. Her raved about "tell-all" book on POTUS, Donald J. Trump and company is in a 100% nose dive headed for the "basement bargain book bin". It now ranks #62 on the Amazon Best Seller Books list. Omarosa, my dear...as you wilt on the vine of failed losers, keep in mind these worthy and truthful sayings: "You reap what you sow, in life." and, "In life, whatever goes around comes around., and Never, ever, bite the hand that feeds you!!! Goodbye, young lady, you have done yourself in...look in the...

As the Omarosa book sales head and dive quickly into the garbage bin, the young lady, Omarosa, not wrapped too tight in the brains department is no where to found on the TV screens of the loving Media that adored her company just weeks ago, but has now deserted her, like a bad habit to get rid of.

Methinks the fifteen minutes of fame for Ms. Omarosa is over. She now joins the ranks of Stormy Daniels, etc. Ms. Omarosa can be contacted at the entrances to the Lincoln & Holland Tunnels in NYC, where she and her bottle of Windex and roll, of paper towels cleans windshield on cars for $1.00 per car before they enter the tunnels!!!

    Not a word about Amerosa this morning...her book is a failure, her lie telling rants and raves have done her in. She has never learned two very important facts of life: "Never bite the hand that feeds you" and, "Whatever goes around, comes around"!!! Her brief fifteen minutes of fame are now in the history books. I highly suggest that she head to a local Manhattan Super Market to buy a bottle of Windex and a roll of paper towels, tools she will require in her new vocation of cleaning car windows on the approaches to the Lincoln and Holland...

    Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman said President Trump's mental decline "could not be denied" while he appeared for an interview with NBC News's Lester Holt in 2017, according to an excerpt in her new book obtained by The Daily Mail. "'While watching the interview I realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald's brain," she writes in "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," which is set to be released on Aug. 14. "His mental decline could not be denied.'" Manigault-Newman added that "many didn't notice it as keenly as I did because I...
  • "little House" author removed from book award over racist language

    The US Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has removed Laura Ingalls Wilder's name from one of its awards over racist views and language. The association had received complaints for years over the Little House on the Prairie author's "anti-Native and anti-Black sentiments in her work". The ALSC board voted unanimously on Saturday to remove Wilder's name from the children's literature award. The medal will be renamed as the Children's Literature Legacy award. The ALSC, a division of the American Library Association, said Wilder's novels and "expressions of stereotypical attitudes" were "inconsistent with ALSC's core values". Wilder's children's novels...

    { SNIP } Whether due more to a loss of nerve than bad planning, the mobs dissipated and the Bolshevik leaders were arrested. With evidence that they were being lavishly financed by Russia’s wartime enemy Germany, the provisional government prepared to dispatch the traitorous radicals. “Now they are going to shoot us,” Lenin warned his co-conspirator Leon Trotsky before shaving his beard and fleeing to Finland. He would not be seen again in public until the Bolsheviks staged a second coup attempt nearly four months later, this time resulting in the cataclysmic October Revolution, which, according to Sean McMeekin’s estimates,...

    James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence for former President Obama, claims in his new book Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to sign a statement condemning foreign interference in elections. In his book, “Facts and Fears, Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence,” Clapper claims the two Republican leaders did not want to sign anything that would hurt their party’s nominee. Clapper was “disappointed, but not surprised,” he also wrote. Ryan and McConell have not responded to the claims. During his appearance on “The View,” Clapper insisted the FBI was not spying on President Donald...

    Grand Rapids Business Journal ^ | May 17, 2018 | Danielle Nelson
    A 47-year-old mystery finally may be resolved. Grand Rapids-based publisher Principia Media announced yesterday it has released a book that allegedly reveals the real identity of “D.B. Cooper,” the infamous skyjacker who in 1971 demanded a $200,000 ransom on board a flight from Portland, Oregon to Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport, before jumping 10,000 feet to his escape. The book, “D.B. Cooper & Me: A Criminal, A Spy, My Best Friend,” is by Carl Laurin, an alleged friend of the skyjacker, and details an investigation into Cooper’s identity. Laurin claims that Cooper was the late "military paratrooper, daredevil and intelligence operative" Walter R. Reca, Principia Media said. Reca,...
