    Van Cleef didn't just play bad guys in the westerns but also in detective and crime movies. But it is his work in the westerns that brought him fame. This accountant/U.S. Navy man who served on mine sweepers and sub chasers in WW2 ended up being a super star in Europe! In the Clint Eastwood movie "A Few Dollars More", we had a glimpse of Van Cleef as a nicer character.

    During the reading of Article II, Section I of the Constitution -- the clause that requires the president of the United States to be a "natural born citizen," an unidentified woman in the gallery screamed "Except Obama! Except Obama!" Politico's Marin Cogan adds that the woman yelled, "Help us, Jesus!" She was removed immediately. UPDATE: I'm told that the woman who made the disruption was Theresa Cao, a birther activist and supporter of court-martialed birther Lt. Col. Terry Lakin. On December 16, she told WorldNetDaily that she was "taking his message to the White House and Congress."

Sarah Palin. "Barack and I may have started on two separate paths, but we are on one journey now," Clinton said. The crowd and the speakers at the event appeared to consist largely of former Clinton supporters who now back Obama, but her speech was aimed at convincing those who don't, or...

    Joe Horn, the infamous neighbor in Pasadena TX who shot two suspected burglars in the back in broad daylight last November, has been cleared by a Texas Grand Jury. According to the Houston Chronicle, Horn "confronted" two men who had allegedly broken into a neighbor's house. Horn had called 911 where his conversation with the operator had been taped: “Move,” Horn can be heard saying on the tape. “You’re dead.” Boom. Click. Boom. Click. Boom. Horn redialed 911 and told the dispatcher what he’d done. “I had no choice,” he said, his voice shaking. “They came in the front yard...

    Think it's hot outside? "Good Morning America" wants you to think it is your fault - at least that's why an expert featured on the June 9 show told viewers it is hotter outside. Stanford University professor Dr. Stephen Schneider said that methane and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are making hot temperatures even hotter. "While this heat wave like all other heat waves is made by Mother Nature, we've been fooling around by turning the knob and making a little bit hotter," Schneider said. "[W]e've already increased by 35 percent the amount of carbon dioxide which traps heat. We've...

    9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed dropped his legal defense and demanded the death penalty at his Guantanamo Bay arraignment hearing Thursday morning. U.S. military judge Marine Col. Ralph Kolman asked Mohammed if he understood he would be executed if convicted for his role in organizing largest ever terrorist attack on American soil. "Yes, this is what I wish, to be a martyr for a long time," Mohammed told Kohlman. "I will, God willing, have this, by you." Making sure Mohammed understood, Kohlmann asked again, “So you could be sentenced to death?” Kolhmann got an angry retort. "Maybe you didn't understand...

    Although today his book is being touted by left-wing reporters and pundits, his initial plans for the project show former White House press secretary Scott McClellan intended to take a much different approach, one that was more sympathetic to President Bush but also quite hard on the "liberal elites" of the Washington press corps and their "hostility" toward the administration. Reading through McClellan's original book proposal, obtained by Politico.com, it is clear that before his editor Peter Osnos took the book on a sharp leftward turn, McClellan wanted to turn the tables on foes in the press gallery including far-left...

Obama: Today I saw an e-mail sent out to your donors in which your wife states, "What we didn't expect, at least not from our fellow Democrats, are the win-at-all cost tactics we've seen recently. We didn't expect misleading accusations that willfully distort Barack's record." Don't be naïve: When those "fellow Democrats" include Hillary Clinton, be ready to expect anything. I know. As detailed in my recent book "Target," I've been the recipient of just about every dirty trick Hillary has in her arsenal. And if you actually...

According to the National Post, a Toronto newspaper Web site, when police arrived at the house they found the teen on the floor without any vital signs.

    The US military claimed on Thursday that American and Iraqi forces had arrested an alleged financier for al-Qaeda who had received $100m from donors outside Iraq to fund insurgent operations. Military officials have long attributed al-Qaeda's expansion in Iraq to its access to external finance, but rarely release figures that give insight into the scale of the operation that they say that they are facing. The $100m (€71m, £50m) sum - far greater than amounts usually associated with Sunni insurgents - had been received over the summer from "terrorist supporters who cross the Iraq border illegally or fly into Iraq...

    NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- As bishops of the Episcopal Church in the United States struggled to prevent schism Tuesday, one of their number defected to the Roman Catholic church. Jeffrey Steenson, bishop of Rio Grande, Texas, said that remaining in the Anglican communion might take him “to a place apart from Scripture and tradition,” The Times of London reported. Episcopal bishops have been meeting in New Orleans to discuss the church’s position on homosexuality. The consecration in 2003 of Gene Robinson, an openly gay priest in a committed relationship, as bishop of New Hampshire brought the issue to...

    Though versatile, compact, and reliable, the Thompson/Center Encore is not a gun one would instinctively associate with state-of-the-art technology or truly exceptional accuracy. Well get ready for a paradigm shift. Richard VanH's 6BR Encore raises the accuracy bar for break-open rifles. This rig may be plain on the outside, but it's seriously tricked out on the inside. Richard's Encore features a chamber exactly matched to his loaded ammo--a chamber cut with an electrical spark, not a conventional reamer. With a precisely-machined lug and oversized hinge-pin, lock-up is ultra-tight. Encore/Contender guru Mike Bellm (who knows as much about Encores as anyone...

They were then escorted by Iranian vessels into Iranian waters, it said. The Marines were "engaged in routine boarding operations of merchant shipping in Iraqi territorial waters," the ministry said in a statement on Friday. A U.S. military official who monitors the region told CNN...

I rarely allow the to watch broadcast television due to the content of commercials. Several weeks ago, I TiVo'd "Finding Nemo" on the Encore Channel for my two youngest children, age 3 and 4. What I got along with this RATED G movie was surreal. When the movie was over and the credit began to roll, Encore does what it always does and cuts the screen in half to run promos for other...

    For years, women have been asking, "When?" They got their answer this week when a small New Jersey pharmaceutical company announced that it was shipping out new supplies of the Today Sponge, a popular over-the-counter method of birth-control that was discontinued in 1994. Within a day, a Canadian Web site set up to distribute the sponges received so many hits that it crashed; the operators set up a new site to accommodate the thousands of new orders and posted a notice on the original begging for patience. About 1,000 women who had preordered the sponges as far back as two...
