    Pataki sends letter to other GOP candidates asking them to call out Trump on comments regarding illegal immigrants.ALLENSTOWN, N.H. —Presidential candidates flocked to the Granite State during the July Fourth weekend. Former New York Gov. George Pataki and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal attended a cookout hosted by the Merrimack County Republican Committee. The event was low-key and gave both Republican candidates the chance to talk one on one with voters. Both candidates had something to say about recent comments from Republican challenger Donald Trump. “I am disappointed he (Trump) hasn’t seen that it was a stupid and wrong comment,” Pataki...

That son of a gun who says we’re all thieves?” the worker said in response to an unidentified interviewer’s question. He then took a sledgehammer and begins work on a house frame. “Look, [expletive], how we rape…these stakes! How we work ourselves to death just to eat.

The victim had just exited a trolley about 8 p.m. June 13 when the assailant jumped him, punching him until he fell to the ground and then kicking him in the head, according to police. A surveillance camera captured images of the aggressor, described as a black teenager with braided hair, wearing blue jeans, a white sweat shirt, red tennis shoes and a black baseball cap.

    Donald Trump continues to stand by controversial comments he made about Mexican immigrants as his standings in Republican primary polls improve despite increasing criticism. The presidential hopeful placed ahead of perceived front-runner Jeb Bush in a new aggregated 'poll of polls' with 13.6 per cent support compared to the former Florida governor's 13.3. The rise comes as public figures and businesses continue to admonish Trump because of the comments saying that those crossing the border from Mexico illegally were 'rapists'. Former Republican candidate Mitt Romney told CNN Saturday that the businessman 'made a severe error in saying what he did...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A random fatal shooting in San Francisco, allegedly by an immigrant, proves the United States must tighten its borders, according to a statement on Friday by U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is facing heavy criticism for his comments about Mexicans. Kathryn Steinle, 32, was fatally shot as she walked with her father along the popular Embarcadero pier on Wednesday in what San Francisco police described as an apparent random attack. Francisco Sanchez, 45, was quickly arrested nearby. He is on probation from Texas, police said. He has a long criminal history and has been deported...

    Donald Trump has stirred up controversy in recent days for claiming “rapists” and “killers” are migrating over the United States’ southern border. Univision and NBC Universal cut ties with Trump this past week, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns as a result, and Macy’s announced Wednesday it was also discontinuing his clothing line. But Trump was right. Rapists are crossing over into the US southern border. And officials are finding rape trees.

    A report this week by the California Department of Justice showing that homicides and other violent crimes continued to drop statewide in 2014 also gave a look at the nature of killings last year. Overall, 1,697 people were slain — an eye-opening amount to be sure but a 3 percent decline from 2013 and the lowest number since 1971. In 1993, a staggering 4,095 people were killed in the Golden State.

    Republicans like to talk about impeaching President Obama, but there is a far more deserving candidate for impeachment—Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court. While the Republicans in Congress have blocked Democrats from enacting much of substance, the GOP majority in control of the Court has been effectively legislating on its own, following an agenda neatly aligned with their conservative party. Step by step, the five right-wing justices are transforming the terms of the American political system—including the Constitution. They empowered “dark money” in politics and produced the $4 billion by-election of 2014. They assigned spiritual values to soulless...

No one mentions the black on black crime that is murdering more people than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

If the town ever made national news, it was because a presidential candidate stopped by vowing to fix things, only for those promises to evaporate after Election Day. But in the past couple of months, Chillicothe has crept back into headlines for something other than a stump speech. Something much darker. Something evil. Chillicothe is no longer just another Rust Belt town. Now it’s the place where women go missing and wash up dead. In...

Ocala police said it appears the burglars entered the elderly woman’s northeast Ocala home through a back window shortly before 6 a.m. and, when she heard noises, she called out to see who was inside. Authorities said the intruders confronted the homeowner and demanded cash from her. When she told them that she didn’t have any money, they beat her. Officials said the robbers then left the home, and it appears they left empty-handed. Officers found the...

Roof allegedly entered the church, attended a Bible study, sat next to its pastor — state senator Clementa Pinckney — and then opened fire. It’s hard to imagine a more callous and profane act. It appears that the shooting was quite deliberate. He’s said to have reloaded five times during the course of the attack, allegedly even taking the time to talk to his...

    The Obama Administration’s release of illegal immigrants who went on to commit more than 100 murders was defended on “humanitarian” grounds by ICE Director Sarah Saldana. “These individuals all faced prison in their home countries,” Saldana said. “These foreign prisons are not like our prisons. There’s no exercise equipment and no satellite TV. Sanitation and hygiene are of the lowest sort imaginable. Sending these people to those Hellholes would have been inhumane.” The inhumanity of the murders subsequently committed against Americans by the release of these foreign criminals was labeled “a tolerable risk” by the ICE Director. “Compared to the...

    While friends were commenting on his last Facebook post Friday -- and some were reading text messages indicating his plan to commit suicide by cop -- Trepierre Hummons called 911 then waited with a gun for police to arrive, Cincinnati police said. When they did, he and shot and killed 48-year-old Officer Sonny Kim, a husband and father of three, police said. Then he opened fire on two more officers, said Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffery Blackwell. The police, while armed, didn't know what they'd walked into. That's because when when the 21-year-old Hummons called the emergency operator, he didn't hint...

    Few things are more disturbing than the collaborative media silence that attends the ongoing disintegration of post-apartheid South Africa. The nation’s ruling African National Congress (ANC), led by President Jacob Zuma, is the essence of corruption in a nation with one of the highest rates [2] of rape in the world, and a murder rate best described [3] last September by MP Dianne Kohler Barnard of the Democratic Alliance, the nation’s second largest [4] political party. “We have 47 murders a day,” she said. “That sort of figure is what one would expect in a war zone.” In her book,...

    Just curious - the father bought the gun and gave it to his troubled son, who already had a criminal record. So the gun may have been legally acquired, but illegally transferred. And the church was a "gun-free" zone? I'm not sure of the specifics and have no knowledge of the law in South Carolina but would love to see a tally of all the existing laws that were thwarted.
