    <p>If a Russian-born IT specialist with longstanding ties to former Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus was arrested by the FBI trying to board a flight to Moscow after wiring hundreds of thousands of dollars abroad on a false pretense while leaving a trail of destroyed hard drives in his wake, it would be the subject of banner headlines and 24/7 speculation on cable TV.</p>
  • Starving Venezuelans Risk 60 Miles of Open Ocean to Barter for Food

    The end stages of socialism in Venezuela are forcing citizens to do anything they can to obtain food for themselves and their families, including risking their lives. Mariana Revilla, a medical doctor reduced to making midnight excursions over 60 miles of open ocean to feed her family, was making her fifth trip to Trinidad when her boat capsized, costing her her life and the lives of two others assisting her. Her boat contained seven tons of flour, sugar, and cooking oil that she had obtained through barter at one of the west coast towns of Trinidad, exchanging them for the...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite. The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation. The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run...

    A video has been circulated on the web showed a suspected burglar buried to his waist in South Africa. He was allegedly forced to dig his own grave before being beaten by an angry mob after he was accused of a series of burglaries. The man who captured the moment in a cellphone video clip said the police arrived just in time to rescue the man as the mob prepared to douse him with petrol and turn him into a human torch. The same man was allegedly caught and beaten by residents‚ twice‚ in the past three months after they...
  • Drugs are killing so many people in Ohio that cold-storage trailers are being used as morgues

    Washington Post ^ | March 16, 2017
    By about 3 p.m. Friday, a county morgue in east Ohio was already full — and more bodies were expected. Rick Walters, an investigator for the Stark County coroner's office, had just left for two death scenes: a suicide and an overdose. From the road, he called the director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency to ask for help. He needed more space, he explained — specifically, a cold-storage trailer to act as an overflow morgue. As with much of the United States, Ohio is in the throes of a heroin and opioid epidemic that shows no signs of abating.
  • Opioid Related Deaths Overtake Gun Fatalities

    ZeroHedge ^ | February 25, 2017 | Tyler Durden
    A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report shows that nearly 5,000 more people died from opioids in 2015 than in 2014. Both heroin and opioid use have exploded in the US, after decades of doctors over-prescribing painkillers in the 1990s and 2000s. A report from the CDC released Thursday found that the drug problem has become so deadly that heroin deaths outnumbered gun fatalities last year for the first time in US history. Until 2007, gun deaths outnumbered heroin deaths five to one, according to the Washington Post. But 2015 saw 12,989 people die from heroin and 12,979...

    A strong political opposition is at the very heart of a healthy democracy. If the opposition is weak, we get tyrants, if the opposition is strong, we get debate, reasoning and a compromise that usually benefits the majority (or at least doesn’t disadvantage the minority). But if the opposition is merely ideological, this can lead to a disaster for a democratic state, personal freedom and will ultimately hurt the poorest and most vulnerable members of society. The short-sightedness with which the Left are conducting themselves is dangerous to everyone. The ideology and Groupthink is setting a course from which he...

    Note: Post contains sensitive content regarding suicide. I found out Donald Trump had won the Electoral College while midstream in providing a urine sample for the emergency psychiatric staff of a New York City public hospital. The unlockable bathroom door in this unescapable wing was ajar, and I could hear the victorious Mike Pence’s sinister Sunday-school baritone taunting me with the truth from the hallway television. For the preceding witching hours of election night, I had lain in a fetal position amidst a cast of anonymous men nursing their own crises, my hands clasped tightly over my ears. It wasn’t...

The Rats don't fear CWII because they have a large group of people who would be their proxies in any civil unrest that might arise. Here's a few statistics to mull over:

    Seem Mr. Trump correctly pointed out that folks in this country who feel the need to disrespect our flag in any form or fashion need to refrain from doing so, at least publicly. He is correct. Countries garner respect for defending their territory, their culture and their language, all of which make a country a country. We seem to be failing on all counts. In Mexico, if you trash their flag in public, you will be beaten and/or killed by the public who sees you doing so BEFORE the police can even get there. Or, in Thailand, do something to...
  • Her toddler suddenly paralyzed, mother tries to solve a vexing medical mystery (open borders?)

    ...hundreds of children across the country have shown up at hospitals unable to move their arms or legs. Dozens of kids have become paralyzed in the past few months alone. They suffer from a mysterious illness that continues to alarm and puzzle scientists. This kind of sudden and devastating paralysis hasn’t been widespread since the days of polio. Lucian, one of the disease’s earliest victims, set off a hunt among doctors to discover its cause. Comment on article: This isn't a mystery. EV D-68 was almost unheard of in the United States prior to 2014. It was first seen in...

    Using locker room language in the presence of a hot mic is not the only situation with dire consequences. True story, vanity, but a worthy departure from protocol. Men's adult soccer teams arrived at an Indianapolis city park, gathering gear and taking the long walk across a sea of grass toward the fields when a good looking blonde woman in tight shorts and clinging top ambled out of the parking lot toward the bleachers. One of my soccer mates mentioned in the most innocent way, "Boy, I'd like to (have a passionate moment with) her." And then . . .

    A lot of people aren’t happy that some Republicans have broken their pledge to the GOP. One of those people is RNC head Reince Priebus. Reince is warning those who don’t support Donald Trump they’ll need to watch their backs in the future. Meaning, we’re not going to help you when your election rolls around if you turn your back on us now. Makes sense – for the most part. From Newsmax: Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be “consequences” in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who don’t stick with their pledge to support the...

    Donald Trump has hired the lawyer who helped Hulk Hogan win an invasion-of-privacy case against Gawker and given him a new mission: threaten legal action against several media outlets that picked up a Slovenian magazine's report claiming that Melania Trump worked as an escort in the 1990s. The website Liberal America on Monday posted a letter it received from Hollywood attorney Charles Harder demanding a retraction and an apology. Politico reported that at least three other news organizations, including London's Daily Mail, received the same notice, which warns that Melania Trump will "institute immediate legal proceedings against you" if her...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- One strict rule at a high school has gone viral and sparked debate. Catholic High School for Boys posted a sign on Facebook six days ago, and it has now been shared more than 110,000 times. The message tells parents to turn around at the front door if they're bringing something for their sons. "If you are dropping off your son's forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc., please turn around and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve." The school's principal Steve Straessle defended the rule. Straessle said, "It's simply to help boys avoid...

    The Gibson Guitar saga has taken a sinister turn. It seems that the Department of Justice wasn’t satisfied with merely raiding the law abiding factories of Gibson Guitar with armed agents, shutting down their operation costing them millions, and leaving the American company in the dark as to how to proceed without going out of business. Now, according to CEO Henry Juszkiewicz, agents of the United States government are bluntly informing them that they’d be better off shipping their manufacturing labor overseas.

    Congress is set to vote on Thursday on what some have called an “unprecedented” right that would allow immigrants easier access to relocate to the United States, according to new legislation offered by a Democratic senator. The legislation, which is being offered by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) as an amendment to a larger bill governing nuclear safety, would prohibit the U.S. government from barring any individual from entering the country based on their religion. “This amendment will establish the progressive goal of creating a right to global migration, their solution to global income inequality,” the source said. “This is...

    It would not be the first time that it has been pointed out that, with all his billions, if he really wanted t make a difference on the streets of Gotham, Bruce Wayne would pack in all the Batman lark, invest in the city, its social services, its infrastructure and rid Gotham of its systemic issues. In today’s Batman #44, Scott Snyder and Jock paint a different picture. We begin with a dead teenager. But how did he get there? And I don’t just mean in the middle of an empty field outside Gotham… First, there is the corruption. And the interest...

    Mexican authorities said Wednesday they found six tigers, seven baboons, four camels and three dromedaries abandoned in cages without food, water or adequate care in the southern Mexico state of Yucatan. The passage of laws forbidding animal acts in circuses has raised fears that the exotic species might be abandoned once they could no longer pay for their keep by performing. The Attorney General's Office for Environmental Protection said a total of 20 animals were found near the city of Merida, many missing claws, teeth or fur.
