    A 72-year-old New Hampshire woman who says Bill Cosby raped her in 1965 has withdrawn her civil defamation lawsuit against the comedian. Kristina Ruehli filed a notice to voluntarily dismiss the suit Friday. It came after a federal judge in Springfield, near where Cosby has a home, rejected the comedian's bid to dismiss the case Thursday. Ruehli's lawyer, Megan Deluhery, tells The Associated Press her client has decided not to pursue the lawsuit because the legal landscape has changed.

    Overnight, the passage of a U.K. “Brexit” referendum that will separate Great Britain from the European Union triggered a sharp decline of the British pound, Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation, and congratulatory remarks from presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

    Hey, Texplainer: Britain voted to leave the European Union. Can Texas secede from the United States? In the wake of Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union - nicknamed "Brexit" - speculation of a Texit on the horizon have cropped up once again. The secessionist movement has a long history in the Lone Star state. Delegates for the Texas Republican Party even recently debated adding secessionist language to the party's platform. But is it actually legal for Texas to leave the United States? Simply put, the answer is no. Historical and legal precedents make it clear that Texas could...
  • AP: Hillary Clinton Destroyed Gov’t Email, Wiped Names From Her Calendar

    06/24/2016 4:15:20 PM PDT · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 101 replies
    The week ends with a double whammy for Hillary Clinton, courtesy of the Associated Press, which discovered that dozens of names and events have been scrubbed from her official Secretary of State calendar, and also confirmed that Clinton destroyed at least one work-related email stored on her illicit email server. The latter revelation has a distinct whiff of “smoking gun” about it. The deleted email was between Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin. When Abedin suggested that Clinton should start using the email account that Clinton was supposed to be using, the Secretary of State replied, “Let’s get separate...

  • Study: Netflix Rate Hike Could Lead to Mass Subscriber Cancellations

    06/20/2016 3:54:17 PM PDT · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 60 replies
    A new study claims that sticker shock could cause hundreds of thousands of loyal U.S.-based Netflix customers to cancel their subscriptions to the popular streaming content provider. In January 2014, a high-definition Netflix subscription cost customers $7.99 per month. By May of that year, Netflix had already began raising its prices, first to $8.99, and then, five months later, to $9.99 for all-new subscribers. Pre-existing users were grandfathered in to their original $7.99 plan, with the promise that their service price would never change. That promise was apparently broken in April when the company announced in a letter to investors...

Democrats renewed their call to action after Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., held the floor along with colleagues in a nearly 15-hour filibuster that lasted into the early hours Thursday.

    The terrorist attack in Orlando that ended 49 lives is another reminder of the threat we face from Radical Islam. There is a deadly element of Islam spreading like a cancer throughout our country and we must unite to confront it. Democrats’ bludgeoning of Americans with political correctness has weakened our resolve. Their hesitation to confront Radical Islam, or even utter the term, has emboldened the jihadists – and not for the first time.

    Trump just isolated the regular gays against the Homosexual Establishment and the Democratic Party just like he did with the conservative base and the GOPe. These regular gay people are having second thoughts about Islam and Hillary and are slowly realizing that Trump and the Christian Right are right.

    Folk, Our federal government has failed miserably in its primary objective among its few and limited powers: Keeping the American people safe. There have been close to a dozen terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11. Islam is an ideology that cannot be reasoned with. I do not want to "understand" it, learn it, break bread with these people, or have them in my community. Aside from Israel, I do not care about the Middle East. Saudi Arabia and all these Arab countries are NOT our friends. Everything I learned about Islam I learned back during the Jefferson administration. Donald...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Despite preliminary approval, those who oppose the tax on sugary drinks still say the fight is not over. City Council is gearing up for a vote that could result in a 1.5-cent-per-ounce tax on sugary drinks. That’s half of what Mayor Jim Kenney initially proposed. Smaller cities, that have eyed similar measures, have done so for health purposes. In Philadelphia, it has been made clear that the goal is education and community improvement.

    The Donald can now say he tried to help the GOPe maintain the House majority, but the conservative base are speaking and it's beyond his control in case he gets pushback from Ryan and his Chamber of Commerce peeps. Of course, the Left and reprobates like Erik Erickson (Thanks Mods/Jim for pulling that thread, Redstate is dead to me) will spin it and say that Trump has no coattails or whatever, but they couldn't be more wrong. Trump's not a traditional politician. He's going to make these types of moves because it's good to get criticism from the base, which...

So I went crazy and gave the money to the brewery," said local restaurant owner Philippe Le Loup,...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Beer-buying Pennsylvanians are seeing a growing number of options where they can pick up a six-pack or two, though Pennsylvania still remains home to some of the nation's most restrictive beer sales laws. This week, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board licensed nine more convenience stores that sell gas to carry takeout six-packs, despite a pending state Supreme Court case that could theoretically invalidate those licenses. In the meantime, it was another step toward loosening the control over takeout beer sales that, for decades, has been largely the province of bars and larger-quantity beer distributors.
