    CNN got an epic smackdown when it requested press passes to cover the highly anticipated DeploraBall, a pro-Trump inauguration party being held tonight at the National Press Club. MAGA 3X, the group that organized the DeploraBall, posted a blistering response to CNN, saying its press-pass application was rejected because of the network’s history of biased news coverage. The group said it had issued press passes to other liberal media outlets like the New Yorker and New York Magazine, but thought CNN didn’t deserve to cover the event. DeploraBall co-organizer Jack Posobiec tweeted that BuzzFeed was also denied a press pass....

    The release committee on Wednesday rejected the request for early release by three Arab citizens of Israel, who murdered three IDF soldiers back in 1992. The three Islamic Jihad linked terrorists from Wadi Ara, members of the Agrebya clan, infiltrated a training base in the southern Carmel Mountains and used pitchforks to murder three IDF trainees as they slept, in a horrific attack that was termed the Night of Pitchforks. All three became heroes among the Palestinian Arab public, with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas demanding their release in the last round of peace talks that lasted from 2013...

    Because Muslims in Canada are so discriminated against, one was just denied subsidized housing in a Christian-only building. Just kidding. Fooled you, didn’t I? Or maybe not…since Canada is such a bastion of leftists and wimps. Actually, everything above just needs to be reversed a little bit. Almost like a sex change. A Canadian man was denied housing because he’s not a Muslim. Not a Muslim. Got it? A video of this and other Canadian silliness: The man being denied housing is just a white guy—yeah, yeah, so he’s disabled. BFD. That doesn’t really matter—no one cares. After all, he...

    The nation’s state legislatures are about to become embroiled in a battle of epic proportions as they line up on either side of the debate over the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. The struggle could define the future of, and indeed the very existence of, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisc.), 49 members of the Wisconsin Legislature and the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin are part of a nationwide, state legislative backlash against the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. EPA officials proposed the plan in June 2014. It is designed to reduce carbon greenhouse gas emissions from fossil-fuel fired...

    Over the past three weeks, we've heard several excuses for the denial of visas to the United States for Israelis. We've been told that visas were denied in order to remove Israel from the 'white list' of countries whose citizens qualify for longer-term visas. We've been told that the United States has been systematically denying visas to Shin Bet (General Security Service) and Mossad agents, to representatives of the IDF and to executives of companies in Israel's defense industry, and it was implied that was out of a fear of competition in the defense industry. And we've been told that...

    The Obama administration has turned down an urgent appeal from Egypt’s government for the delivery of U.S. Apache attack helicopters needed for counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula. U.S. officials and a Western diplomat said the 10 AH-64 attack helicopters had been blocked from delivery in October in response to the administration’s opposition to the military ouster of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi last year. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo within the past several weeks relayed the Egyptian government’s appeal to send the new Apaches in a cable to the State Department. According to U.S. officials, the Egyptians said the...

In preparation for the assembly, the Iranian delegation applied for about 160 visas two months ago, of which around 20 were turned down. The U.S. State Department gave no official reason, but the travel bans are likely due to sanctions related to Iran's nuclear program.

    A ‘breakthrough’ drug that gives extra months of life to men with advanced prostate cancer has been rejected for use on the NHS. The once-daily pill was developed by UK scientists at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and trials were partly funded by British charities. But it has been branded as too expensive by the rationing watchdog the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. Abiraterone is the latest prostate cancer drug to face an NHS ban despite being proven to extend life for men with advanced disease. Last month another drug--Jevtana--was turned down as ‘not cost-effective’.

Where do people make up stuff like this out of the thin air? ...Plain and simple. Someone has more time than brains on his hands." It appears that people are simply putting the cart ahead of the horse. Ideologically Huck lines up more with Bachmann, Santorum, Cain, possibly Perry and with 3/4 of Ron Paul.

    Family doctors are being prevented from prescribing drugs for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis as NHS managers attempt to make drastic budget cuts, an investigation has found. Primary care trusts are adding more medicines to their so-called "red lists" which means they can only be prescribed by a hospital consultant and not a GP. The measure is designed to save money by restricting access to drugs that are often among the more expensive. It also means that many patients find it more difficult to obtain the most effective drugs free on the NHS, even though they have

    Cancer patients are being denied a pioneering treatment that offers their only hope of survival - even though millions of pounds have been spent on the technology behind it. Doctors referred Lesley Whiting, 56, from Sussex, for a robotic radiosurgery procedure called Cyberknife, which is widely used across the world, but only became available on the NHS last year. (Snip) But NHS bureaucrats refused to fund the treatment, which costs the health service around £10,000 per treatment- despite the fact almost £9 million has been spent buying the robotic technology for three NHS hospitals.

    WASHINGTON – Big companies are building up cash and are expected to report strong earnings starting this week. Not so for small businesses that can't get loans — or hire freely until they do. The gap helps explain why the economic rebound isn't stronger and could even stall. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke stepped up pressure Monday on banks to break the logjam and lend more to smaller firms, which employ at least half of American workers. Small business owners are relying on personal credit cards or raiding retirement accounts to stay afloat, the Fed chairman said. Bernanke and other...

    Five conservative federal appeals court judges accused their colleagues of promoting censorship Monday after the court refused to reconsider an appeal by a Southern California student barred by his high school from wearing an anti-gay T-shirt to class. "School administrators are now free to give one side of debatable public questions a free pass while muzzling voices raised in opposition,'' Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain said ... --snip-- The author of the original ruling, liberal Judge Stephen Reinhardt, said the dissenters did not seem to understand what it is like to be a member of a minority group subjected to verbal intimidation...

    Pride Festival Denied Funding Josh Pringle Tuesday, June 20, 2006 Organizers of Ottawa-Gatineau Pride Week say the future of the festival is in jeopardy.

Vice-Chair of the Pride Week Committee Tamara Stammis says the board will have to meet to decide their next step. Stammis says the cash request was an important element for the festival. Councillor Diane Holmes tells CFRA News "is...

After being told to fly home to Idaho the next day on a Delta flight, he started drinking...

Mullin was convicted in 1973 of 10 slayings in Santa Cruz County and one in Santa Clara County during a five-month killing spree in late 1972 and early 1973.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the execution of convicted killer Michael Morales. Justice Anthony Kennedy reviewed the case, then sent it to the full court, which denied Morales' final appeal at 6:29 p.m. EST, according to court spokesman Ed Turner. "The court entered orders denying the request for stays of execution," he said. The Supreme court was the only legal option left for Morales, 46, who is scheduled to die from lethal injection at 12:01 a.m. at San Quentin State Prison for killing teenager Terri Winchell, of Lodi. He would become the...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger denied clemency Friday to California's oldest condemned convict who asked to be spared because of his age and infirmities. Clarence Ray Allen, 75, who ordered the slayings of three people at a Fresno market while he was behind bars at Folsom State Prison in 1980, told Schwarzenegger that he was too old and frail to be put to death early Tuesday morning at San Quentin State Prison. "Allen's jury reasonably concluded that life in prison was not the appropriate punishment for someone who orders the killing of witnesses while already serving a term of...

    WASHINGTON – Aaron Klein, WND's Jerusalem bureau chief, was prevented today from entering Syria, where he planned to interview officials from Syria, Lebanon and the U.S., as well as co-host ABC Radio's nationally syndicated "The John Batchelor Show," because, according to at least one official in the Syrian embassy, he's Jewish.

He and Batchelor, along with producer Lee Mason, made arrangements with the Syrian embassy in the U.S., in advance of their trip. All three were told...

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A fired university professor accused of supporting terrorists denied ties to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in a filmed 1994 interview, which was played at his trial Wednesday. During the interview for a PBS documentary on Middle East terror groups operating in the United States, Sami Al-Arian was asked if he had ties to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. "There was never an affiliation," he replied. Prosecutors have presented intercepted phone calls and letters and played videotaped speeches that they say show Al-Arian, a former University of South Florida professor, was the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's top official in...
