    Examiner ^ | December 17, 2014 | Chuck Yarling
    “It’s long past time to call the Fort Hood attack what it was: radical Islamic terrorism. And, this recognition for Fort Hood terrorist victims is overdue. The victims and their families deserve our prayers and support, and this legislation rightly honors them for defending our nation in the face of a heinous act of terror”
 - Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Reps. John Carter (R-Texas) and Roger Williams (R-Texas) added words to legislation of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that expanded “eligibility for the Purple Heart to include members of the Armed Forces who have been killed or wounded...

    Attorney General Eric Holder plans to to continue a federal investigation into the shooting of robbery suspect Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson after a grand jury found that there was not enough evidence to even indict him. The grand jury after many months, days and hours of seeing and hearing evidence, studying the evidence and hearing testimony found no fault with Officer Wilson regarding the incident. He was doing what police officers are supposed to do, protect the community from crime. Mr. Holder needs to answer to the American People why he thinks it is imperative to pursue this...

    Voting machines that switch Republican votes to Democrats are being reported in Maryland. “When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose -- a Republican -- but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it,” reported Donna Hamilton. “This happened multiple times with multiple selections. Every time my choice flipped from Republican to Democrat. Sometimes it required four or five tries to get the ‘x’ to stay on my real selection,” the Frederick, Md., resident said Thursday. Two other Maryland voters reported the same problem...

    New Yorkers flocked to Liberty Island for a stunning D-Day anniversary tribute in which 1 million red rose petals rained down on the Statue of Liberty on Friday. A crowd of more than 200 — war veterans, students and tourists among them — gazed in awe as helicopters showered the statue with petals in honor of the 70th anniversary of the invasion. Mike Roper, 74, a history teacher at York Prep, said he came to teach his students that surviving vets are living history. ...

Perhaps even some of our federal judges. Heads need to roll. Man the phones, send the letters! Racketeering, bribery, corruption, high crimes and treason!!

    Vanity | March 7, 2014 | Self
    After the adjurnment of a hearing to investigate the silencing of political opposition to Democrat Barack Obama, Chairman Darrell Issa (R) turned off the microphone of Elijah Cummings (D) before Cummings could make a statement to further distract from the investigation. Cummings then had his apparently planned tantrum for the camera. The Democrats are now claiming outrage at being silenced by having Cummings' microphone turned off. The hypocracy of that seems lost on on the Main Stream Media based on their coverage of the event. Their coverage barely mentions the reason for the hearings or the status of the hearings...

  • Donations to Karl Rove's Groups Drop 98% after Targeting Tea Party

    Breitbart. ^ | 1 Feb 2014, 11:59 AM PDT | Tony Lee
    After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove's three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. .... Since then, as Breitbart News reported, "Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him." Aware of this, Rove's Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them.

    On Thursday’s “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was interview by host Jon Stewart. In that appearance, Stewart asked Pelosi to explain why the rollout of ObamaCare has been so plagued, especially the website exchanges, to which Pelosi had no answer. STEWART: OK, we are going to set up a health care website that is an exchange. People are going to come to it. Why is it so hard to get a company to execute that competently? PELOSI: I don’t know.

    YAHOO News ^ | Wed, Dec 11, 2013 | David Miller
    The paper airplane is more than a piece of folded paper that glides and turns before hitting the ground--it’s a classic part of growing up. We all made them, some that worked well and others that tanked immediately after takeoff. They’re a low-tech fixture in a high-tech world, so when inventor and pilot Shai Goitein created a module that turns the classic paper airplane into a Bluetooth-enabled smart phone-controlled paper airplane, he risked stomping on nostalgia. But the PowerUp 3.0 is so simple to understand that instead of messing with a classic they’ve brought renewed interest to the paper airplane,...
