    A huge "good job" to Ann Coulter, for her appearance on Sean Hannity's show this evening. I was very impressed, we need more voices like hers, speaking up clearly. She spoke very clearly about what she (correctly) identified as two things wrong with our country. First the left is pushing immigration very strongly. For political power. The right is pushing immigration very strongly meanwhile, for profits. Both sides, are selling out America.

The Williamson PreK-8 teacher, who was not identified, would give her students “wrapped candy” as a reward for their hard work and good behavior. Because the practice was an alleged violation of the federal rules championed by first lady Michelle Obama, Mingo County Schools Director of Child Nutrition Kay Maynard “placed a call to officials at the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) to report the incident,” the Williamson Daily News reports.

    AUBURN, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage pitched his plan to reform Maine’s tax system and realign the state’s spending priorities in a “town hall” forum at Edward Little High School on Wednesday. LePage announced he intends to put a statewide ballot measure before voters in 2016 that would ask them to amend the Maine Constitution to eliminate the state’s income tax for good. He told Eileen Heidrich of Turner that that way he would be sure his goal to end the state’s income tax completely could not be undone by politicians in Augusta. “We are working on the language; we’ve...

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact a ruling that struck down anArizona law that denied bail to illegal immigrants charged with certain felonies. The justices rejected an appeal filed by Maricopa County and its controversial sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Three of the court's conservative justices, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, said they would have heard the case. Four of the nine justices must agree to hear a case for the court to take it up. The court's action means the October 2014 ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the 2006 law is unconstitutional, is the final word in the...

    US investment in biofuels are to be expanded under proposals advanced by the US EPA. Under the proposed rule announced Friday, the amount of ethanol in the gasoline supply would increase in coming years, just not as much as set out under federal law. That approach drew criticism from ethanol and farm groups that have pushed to keep high volumes of ethanol in gasoline. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has called for a robust renewable fuels standard while campaigning in Iowa, host of the leadoff presidential caucuses next year. … In a bid to ethanol producers, the administration also...

The Warriors eliminated the Rockets with a 104–90 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday, advancing to an NBA Finals date with the Cavaliers. This is a matchup worth waiting for, and a little patience will be required.

    racist: [rey-sist] verb (used without object) The characteristic shrill and repeated distress call made by the Common North American Lib Loon (Liberalis Vacuous). It is typically sounded, ad nauseum, when the birds feel cornered, which happens often due to their innately poor sense of direction and unawareness of surroundings. The vexing sound is soon loudly repeated by all other distressed Lib Loons across a wide territory. Most other bird genus, such as the once-numerous Common Sensiblem and Haveworktoduem, have learned to largely ignore this useless sound. This contrasts with a highly symbiotic species, Mainstreamum Mediaus, which is known to fly...

    Went to a newly-opened, airplane hangar-sized Cabella's today. Very impressive store. I haven't bought ammo in a while and the prices were a shock. Makarov 9X18 is $1/round and in short supply. 7.62X39 also $1/round. Tokorev 7.62X25 was about $1.20/round. 7.62X51 was about $1.30/round. 7.62X54, more. .22 was 10 cents/round if you bought a brick. The least expensive self-defense ammo, surprisingly, was 9X19/Lugar, at about 35 cents/round. Cowboy Colt .45 was $1.60/round. At these prices, the ammo in your gun safe is worth more than some of your firearms.

    Harlan Ellison is still an angry young man, except he'll be 81 on May 27. He has used this anger, fueled by childhood anti-Semitism, throughout his extraordinary career as a writer of speculative fiction. This year saw the publication of his 116th and 117th (so far) books: The Top of the Volcano, a collection of his awardwinning short stories, and a graphic novelization of his original script for "The City on the Edge of Forever," widely considered the best Star Trek episode ever written. Although Ellison's hundreds of published stories contain a wealth of Jewish characters, his most complex creation...

    The convicted mastermind behind the world's largest online narcotics emporium has been sentenced by a federal judge to two terms of life in prison and three lesser sentences, USA Today reports. The judge also ordered Ross Ulbricht, 31, to forfeit $184 million dollars. The website made over $187 million before it was shut down in 2013. The government estimated that roughly $1.2 billion in illegal drug transactions took place on Silk Road. The judge said it was a "demand expanding operation" and that what Ulbricht did was thoughtful, as opposed to just being an economic experiment. She added that he...

    How many times do you hear preppers and liberty-minded folks make statements along the line of “When the schumer hits the fan, I will take such action,” or “After some event I will make that change,” or “If it gets to that point, then I’ll take a stand!”? These ideas are based on the premise that there will be “the big event.” The assumption among many preppers and liberty activists is that there will be a clear cut “before” and “after,” with a defining moment, event, or series of events, delineating between the two. Such events could include economic collapse,...

    More than 10,000 websites blocked users from computers in Congress on Friday, in a demonstration against any possible re-authorization of NSA surveillance powers. “This is a blackout,” read the site to which computers from congressional IP addresses were redirected. “We are blocking your access until you end mass surveillance laws.” “Right now the code affects only visitors from Congress, we’re willing to keep it up,” said Holmes Wilson, a co-founder of Fight for the Future, the group which wrote the code and is leading the online protest. The redirect site also includes semi-nude, sometimes explicit photos submitted by people, under...

    A 16-year-old boy has been arrested over the murder of a woman in a Burka and a young father. The unnamed teenager was apprehended on the Salary Brook Trail in Colchester – the same trail where Saudi student Nahid Almanea was stabbed to death last June – at about 11am on Tuesday on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon. Today, Essex Police said he had now been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Ms Almanea and that of James Attfield, who died after being stabbed more than 100 times in a park in the town in March last...
  • Local USGS, LA Times ‘Quakebot’ Mistakenly Report Magnitude 5.1 Earthquake Near Redding

    REDDING (CBS SF) – An earthquake with magnitude of 5.1 was reported but never hit the Redding area overnight. The United States Geological Survey reported the quake just after midnight, seven miles outside of Lewiston, just under Buckeye Ridge at Clair Engle Lake. But the Associated Press confirmed Friday morning that this was a “…erroneous alert based off an earthquake that struck in Alaska.” The event record of the California quake has since vanished from the USGS seismic activity map. As of 9 a.m., the computer algorithm used to automatically “write” earthquake stories for the Los Angeles Times continued to...
