    Pennsylvania prison officials say they will soon begin giving expensive new medication to former death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal to treat his hepatitis C infection.

She currently is a co-host on the "The Five," and also offers legal and political analysis on other shows. She is still serving in those roles, despite meeting with President-elect Donald Trump's transition team three times.

    As an anchor and co-host of daytime talk show “Outnumbered,” Harris Faulkner has become a familiar face to fans of Fox News Channel. For the past several weeks, however, Faulkner has been noticeably absent from the network, and for a heartbreaking reason: (her mother passed away) After returning home to Texas to say farewell, Faulkner was back on “Fox News Sunday” over the weekend, where — in an emotional closing segment — she honored her mother's memory and offered her heartfelt thanks for the outpouring of support she's received from colleagues and viewers alike.

    Hasbro Inc. asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner, who wants the company to pay her $5 million because it made an inch-tall plastic toy hamster named "Harris Faulkner." Faulkner — a six-time Emmy Award-winner who anchors "Fox News Weekend" for the news channel — sued Hasbro in August for adding the hamster to its line of "Pet Pawsabilities" toys. She claimed that the plastic rodent with a levitating butterfly hat "willfully and wrongfully appropriated Faulkner's unique and valuable name and distinctive persona" for Hasbro's financial gain.

    A Dallas hospital’s bizarre bungle of the first U.S. case of Ebola leaves me wondering: Is someone covering up for a crony billionaire Obama donor and her controversy-plagued, taxpayer-subsidized electronic medical records company? Last week, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital revealed in a statement that a procedural flaw in its online health records system led to potentially deadly miscommunication between nurses and doctors. The facility sent Ebola victim Thomas Duncan home despite showing signs of the disease—only to admit him with worse symptoms three days later. Hospital officials, who came forward “in the interest of transparency,” initially cited workflow and information-sharing...

    Meet Judy Faulkner. She is the founder and CEO of Epic Systems Corporation in Wisconsin.

    The Obama administration is smarting over having egg on its face after the US Senate failed to confirm the nomination of Debo Adegbile for the head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. In a stunning defeat after Harry Reid changed the rules were a nomination could now pass on a simple majority, the final tally was 47-52 against Adegbile. Democrats even brought in Joe Biden to cast the tiebreaking vote in order to confirm the nomination. However, seven Democrats (most likely looking at the upcoming midterm elections) split and voted against the nomination. When Obama nominated...

    The widow of a Philadelphia police officer gunned down by a man whose lawyer has been picked by President Obama for a top civil rights post says she wants to testify at his confirmation hearing. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, told the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday that he backed Maureen Faulkner’s request to speak at Debo Adegbile’s nomination hearing. “She has requested that she be given the opportunity to be heard before the committee,” Grassley said. “I think it’s a reasonable request and I support it.” Adegbile has been described by critics as “radical,” “dangerous” and “outside the mainstream.” Obama nominated...

    January 09, 2014, 12:45 pm Obama nomination of Mumia Abu Jamal lawyer stirs controversy By Mario Trujillo Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) expressed reservations about President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division during a Wednesday confirmation hearing for Debo Abegbile. Abedbile’s nomination has come under scorn from the Fraternal Order of Police, who have scolded Obama for nominating a lawyer involved in the defense of Mumia Abu Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in a 1982 trial. Grassley said he would giving “thoughtful consideration” to the complaints from police. He said the...

    (Reuters) - With the White House already reeling from three major controversies, some Republican lawmakers are zeroing in on what they perceive is another possible scandal tied to President Barack Obama's landmark health reform law just as it nears implementation. On top of the troubles the administration is facing over its handling of the attack on the Benghazi mission, the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups, and the Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press phone records, Republicans hope to target Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. They are questioning her soliciting of funds on behalf of a non-profit...

Not only is this yet another insult to widow Maureen Faulkner, but the fact that the staff at the NCC doesn't realize that it is not obligated to rent space to an organization that actively advocates for the overthrow of our society, shows you just how far we have fallen.

    A federal committee that includes a major donor to President Obama and whose company stands to profit from the panel's recommendations holds in its hands the future of health information technology policy. Judith Faulkner, founder and CEO of Epic Systems Corp., secured a seat on a panel charged with recommending how $19 billion in stimulus money dedicated to health IT be spent, despite opposing a key administration position on the issue. Faulkner and her company oppose the president's vision for health IT, but Epic employees are massive Democratic donors. They've given nearly $300,000 to Democrats since 2006, according to the...

    Even with as impressive a Republican nominee as former New York Jets football player Michel Faulkner and all the ethical clouds looming over embattled Rep. Charles Rangel (D.-N.Y.), the chances of Rangel somehow losing to re-election in the 15th District lie closer to “none” than “slim.” And that is why, incredible as it may seem, there have been recent developments and publicity pointing to Faulkner as a contender to keep one’s eye on. This is the celebrated district held by Rangel for 40 years and, before that, by his legendary predecessor and fellow Democrat Adam Clayton Powell since it was...
