  • U.S. Marshals searching for suspects in vicious restaurant assault

    06/26/2017 7:31:11 PM PDT · by BBell · 44 replies
    Published on Jun 26, 2017 BAXLEY, GA (WTOC) — Baxley Police are still looking for a couple who attacked a restaurant owner and her 15-year-old daughter last Thursday - over a food order. At this time, the video has nearly two million views on Facebook. Police tell us they're expanding their search for the two suspects beyond just Southeast Georgia, and a handful of outraged citizens are also putting their money together to offer a $2,000 reward for information that leads to their arrests. The assault, captured on surveillance video outside Baxley's Quik Chik stand, has people talking around the...
  • BREAKING: Campus-carry activist at Ohio State shot dead near campus

    The College Fix ^ | January 5, 2017 | Greg Piper - Associate Editor
    Tarak Andrew Underiner wanted Ohio college students to have the right to carry guns on campus so they could defend themselves in dangerous situations – say, leaving the library late at night and traveling home alone. Now he’s the first homicide of 2017 in Columbus. The Lantern reports that the Ohio State University campus-carry activist was “found dead from gunshot wounds” at a residence near campus when police responded to a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Thursday. The police report says investigators don’t think the shooting was “random in nature.” Underiner, the treasurer of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, testified in November...
  • Ben Ferguson Dismantles Ivanka Trump Pay-for-Play Accusations (St. Jude)

    The liberal media had been trying to make a lot of hay out of accusations that the Trump family had tried to sell access to themselves and their president-elect father. So far such concerns seem to have little merit since all of the instances pointed to by accusers have not actually happened. But that didn’t stop it from being a topic of conversation on CNN’s OutFront on Wednesday. “This has been a stumbling block for the Trumps,” argued fill in host Poppy Harlow, after a long winded report about the accusations was aired, “Why even open yourself up to this...

    The political conventions seem to birth new political stars every four years and this year’s Republican National Convention was no different. In 2004, a virtually unknown senator from Chicago gave an electric speech at the Democratic National Convention that thrust him into the international spotlight and set him on a path to the White House. That man was President Barack Obama. This year’s GOP convention didn’t just produce a new rising star -- it birthed a whole dynasty of superstars. The world now knows why political pundits have been calling Donald Trump’s family members his secret weapon. Trump’s wife and...

    Dilbert.com ^ | 7/21/2016 | Scott Adams
    What I’m starting to sniff in the zeitgeist today is that Trump’s kids are totally changing what people think of the father. People are making the semi-rational assumption that anyone who can raise such good kids must be very different in private than he is on the campaign trail... A large number of voters – I’m guessing about 20% of the public – want to support Trump but find it impossible because of the way he has so far presented himself. His brand is too toxic. So people lay low and wait for a “fake because” so they can throw...

    Just thought I would publish my encounter with Trump's family in Raleigh. His son and daughter-in-law were very accessible and are a very down-to-earth couple. They support Donald wholeheartedly and are a very gracious couple. They echoed Trump's support for us, not the establishment.
  • Bill Bolling: Virginia needs a Presidential PRIMARY

    A rising chorus of voices are calling on the Republican Party of Virginia’s state central committee to vote for a Presidential Primary on June 27. Among the many who have opined on the issue is former Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling who took to his Facebook page Thursday to voice his support for a primary: “If the Virginia GOP opts to nominate our candidate for President in a closed party convention, as opposed to an open statewide primary, it will be a HUGE mistake. We cannot survive if we are determine to be a party of exclusion, as opposed to a...

    Lynn Mitchell is at it again. This time standing up for disgraced 5th District GOP Chairman Jon Berkley. Let’s run through her arguments methodically, to be fair. Her arguments: Berkley was a good Chairman. Berkley did nothing to deserve his removal. Berkley had “overwhelming support” within his committee. All three arguments are intellectually dishonest on their face- and Ms. Mitchell should know better. Let’s review. The facts: “Berkley was a good Chairman.” Mitchell’s two arguments seem to be that Robert Hurt won his district in 2014, and that he raised $10,000 for the 5th CD Committee. Well, first off, 2014...
  • Potential Candidates for Michael Grimm’s House Seat Begin to Surface

    Daniel M. Donovan Jr., the district attorney in the controversial police chokehold case on Staten Island, appears poised to run for the seat in Congress about to be vacated by Representative Michael G. Grimm, and may face several adversaries if he does. Mr. Donovan, who impaneled the grand jury that cleared a police officer in the July death of Eric Garner, said in a statement on Tuesday that he was “very seriously considering the race.” But some other prominent Republicans and Democrats also expressed interest, either publicly or privately, in running for Mr. Grimm’s seat.

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 12/2/14 | Jim Hoft
    On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder kicked off the first of a series of community forums on Ferguson at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on Monday night. Holder suggested to the activists that US police are an “occupying force.” “The problems we must confront are not only in Ferguson. The issues raised in Missouri are not unique in that state or to that small city. We are dealing with concerns that are truly national is scope and have threatened the entire nation. Broadly speaking without mutual understanding between citizens whose rights must be respected and law enforcement officers who make...

    Attorney General Eric Holder says that he is beyond exasperated — he is “mad,” in fact — at the leaks pouring out of the investigation into the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Holder even went so far as to advise those responsible for leaking the information to “shut up” in a public interview at the Washington Ideas Forum on Wednesday. “I think that somebody, these leakers, have made the determination that they’re trying to somehow shape public opinion about this case,” Holder told The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. “And that’s inconsistent with the way in which...

    Just after announcing his resignation as U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder has accepted a top job with Wall Street finance giant JPMorgan Chase. Starting in early November, Holder will serve as JPMorgan Chase’s chief compliance officer, where his responsibilities will include lobbying Congress on the company’s behalf and ensuring it “gets the best deal possible” from any new proposed financial regulations. Holder will also fetch morning coffee and breakfast orders for CEO Jamie Dimon and board members. For his efforts, Holder will earn an annual salary of $77 million plus bonuses for a job well done. In a statement, Holder...
  • Eric Holder Legacy to Black Community is More Criminals

    While the liberal media has spent the past week lauding the civil rights record of Eric Holder, missed in the discussion is the potential consequence his actions on sentencing and criminal enforcement will have on African-American neighborhoods. Progressive pundits have noted his vocal involvement in both the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases as evidence of his commitment to "racial justice" and desire to increase the safety of minority residents. By leading the charge to reduce sentencing for drug traffickers, the ultimate legacy that Eric Holder leaves the black community may in fact be more criminals, more shootings, more funerals and...

    Words matter — and never more so than when race is involved. For more than a week, we have been repeatedly told that a white police officer shot and killed an “unarmed black teenager” on a street in Ferguson, Mo. The words conjure the image of a kid gunned down because of the color of his skin by a trigger-happy white cop.

    Authored by Eric Holder, via The St.Louis Post-Dispatch, Since the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, the nation and the world have witnessed the unrest that has gripped Ferguson, Mo. At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system. At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn - in a fair and thorough manner - exactly what happened. Today, I will be...

This is critical to increasing our majority in the House this November. (SNIP) The deadline is just days away.

    Lies and rumors about Congressman Eric Cantor have been widely distributed by tea party candidate Dave Brat’s supporters. As we near the June 10 primary for the 7th Congressional District, it’s time to set the record straight. Here’s the truth from Brian Schoeneman in response to 20 lies about Eric Cantor that were posted in the Bearing Drift comments from a Dave Brat supporter (see Liberal professor David Brat pulls a two-face two-step by Brian Kirwin). Lie #1: Eric Cantor made insider trading illegal for Americans, but exempted his family members. The truth: Insider trading has been illegal for Americans...
