    UFC President Dana White thinks the guy who got his face rearranged by MMA fighter Roger Huerta in a bloody street brawl deserved "to be knocked the f*ck out" -- because it ain't right to hit a lady.

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Relations between the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and some members of the African-American community are still a sore spot in the weeks since the Brandon Johnson incident. Case in point -- an altercation in which an officer was injured during a presentation to a youth symposium last weekend that officials said was staged, leading to the suspension of a parks manager and animosity among officers, 6News' Jack Rinehart reported. Sgt. Matthew Grimes was asked to give a presentation to a church audience on July 24 at Municipal Gardens, in the 1800 block of Lafayette Road. During the presentation,...
  • WEINER vs. KING: 1st Amendment Lesson Hidden Inside Congress’ Shame

    For the better part of two days, New York Representatives Anthony Weiner (D) and Peter King (R) reminded Americans why Congress has record low approval ratings. A bill designed to provide healthcare to 9/11 first responders suffering from conditions incurred during cleanup in the terrorism aftermath has stalled once again over partisan wrangling on the House floor. And, yet, for all the shame and disgusting blind devotion to making the opposition party look bad while people die, Morality in Media (MIM) president, attorney Robert Peters, says there is a subtle, but extremely powerful—and, yes, positive—lesson to draw out of this...

    The way these Beltway insiders think is pretty transparent. They love the fact that she’s out there whipping up the base, who can’t stand them, and see them as the problem, not the solution. They also love that she can raise a lot of money for candidates, as well as pick solid people to endorse. They are also happy that she’s out there doing ALL of the heavy lifting, and taking ALL of the flack, this way they never have to take a firm position on things. These establishment types are all too happy allowing Sarah Palin to work her...

    PIKEVILLE — Appalachian News-Express Editor Jerry Boggs said he will not press assault charges against Pikeville Mayor Frank Justice II. "It was a pretty minor thing. I realize the gravity of it given our positions," Boggs told the Herald-Leader Thursday afternoon. Boggs and the mayor met Wednesday. Boggs said the mayor apologized and he accepted Justice's apology.
  • Time for Obama and Democrats to Fight

    Someone needs to find the same pugnacious spirit on a jobs bill. Yes, crucial assistance to states that are slashing programs and raising taxes has been blocked by Republican senators -- including Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine. Both prize their moderate images, but neither has been willing to break with the GOP leadership. But either Obama and the Democrats really believe that giving the economy another shot in the arm now is essential, or they don't. If they put no punch behind their argument, voters will have no idea that some state cutbacks or tax hikes they are...

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A fight over the “Tea Party” name is getting ugly in Orlando. Late Thursday morning, a news conference by one group turned into a shouting match and police had to be called out. At the Supervisor of Elections Office Thursday, there was some pushing, shoving and name-calling. It happened between two groups that both claim to be part of the Tea Party. Members of the Tea Party Movement insist their name was hijacked by political consultant Doug Guetzloe and local attorney Fred O'Neal, who registered a third party called the Florida Tea Party. But Guetzloe, O'Neal and...
  • Amid crises, Obama declares war -- on Arizona

    *** The Justice Department is preparing to sue Arizona over its new immigration law. The president has stiffed Gov. Jan Brewer's call for meaningful assistance in efforts to secure the border. And the White House has accused Arizona's junior senator, Republican Jon Kyl, of lying about an Oval Office discussion with the president over comprehensive immigration reform. Put them all together, and you have an ugly state of affairs that's getting uglier by the day. First, the lawsuit. Last week, Brewer was appalled to learn the Justice Department's intentions not from the Justice Department but from an interview done by...

    The Obama administration’s announcement they will sue Arizona over the state’s recently passed immigration law known as SB 1070 may have some on the left cheering, but Democrats sitting in McCain won districts may not be sitting too pretty on the issue. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Arizona Democrat, is currently in dangerous re-election waters. Her 8th congressional district was won by Senator John McCain, Arizona Republican, in the 2008 presidential election by a +6 margin. Ms. Giffords, like her fellow Arizona Democrats in McCain won districts, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick and Rep. Harry Mitchell, has not been extraordinarily vocal on SB 1070,...

    A serious re-election fight wasn't what Republican John McCain expected when he returned to the Senate after losing the presidency. Yet that's just what he's got. The four-term senator is battling for his political life in a race that embodies the volatility of an unpredictable election year. He's facing former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, a fellow Republican pushing him farther to the right as GOP voters demand conservative purity in their candidates and punish anyone with ties to Washington establishment. Two longtime Senate incumbents have fallen _ Bob Bennett, R-Utah, and Arlen Specter, D-Pa. A third _ Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark. _...

    Elena Kagan's Supreme Court nomination is becoming contentious because of tensions over sensitive documents related to her past career. Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has asked the Department of Defense for all records related to its efforts to recruit at Harvard Law School while Kagan served as dean. Sessions criticized Kagan in a floor speech last week for barring military recruiters after she became dean in 2003

    As San Francisco and other "sanctuary cities" declare war on Arizona over its new law cracking down on illegal immigrants, most state and local governments that provide a safe haven to undocumented workers refused to publicly roll out a welcome mat for the estimated 440,000 illegals in the Grand Canyon state. They may call themselves "sanctuary cities," but very few of them are offering sanctuary to the illegal immigrants in Arizona who now face possible arrest and deportation.

    A sudden uprising from the moguls of enterprise threatens to disrupt, if not demolish, Obama’s fake green plans for the world. The Sierra Club and other socialist despots have been bringing ‘vexatious and frivolous’ law cases against normal businesses for a long time, with Democratic approval. Al Gore used the same tactic in his run-up to the vice presidential elections. The Democrat rat-pack did the same recently to Sarah Palin, bringing malicious and unfounded accusations against her. The idea is to weaken opposition with continuous litigation, even though their cases are flimsy and stupid. The idea is not to win,...

    BELFAST, Maine — A Rockport man who pleaded guilty to assaulting his 4-year-old son was sentenced Tuesday in Waldo County Superior Court to serve two years in jail for the crime. Pedro Delgado-Bristol, 26, allegedly forced his two boys to fight on Jan. 9 at his Rockport home while he lay on his bed and watched, according to police reports. The boys told a Knox County Sheriff’s Office detective that the fighting they did was like the Ultimate Fighting Championship and that they had to hit each other with closed fists, kicks and knees to the body. The boys also...

    Iowa – -( Folks, this article is difficult to write. But you have to hear about what happened yesterday in the Capitol to State Representative Kent Sorenson. For two years now, Representative Kent Sorenson has been one of the leading champions for the 2nd Amendment here in Iowa. He was the one who introduced and pushed the REAL Right-to-Carry bill for Iowa Gun Owners last session. (This is the famous legislation that would allow all law abiding Iowans the option the carry weapons, openly or concealed, WITHOUT having to beg permission from the government first. This is similar to the...

    Read the stories of how G-d rescued His people, over and over again. He is full of love and mercy and doesn't want to judge. But, make no mistake this country is coming under judgement. How bad that will be, depends on us. We can cut it off short, if we just do a few things. Study the old testament stories. Of Joel, Hosea, ect. These are wonderful guides. They show how often G-d rescued Israel. And G-d is no respecter of persons, what He will do for one, He will do for another. Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his...

    More than a dozen people have been slain in gun battles across the border from the Rio Grande Valley since Sunday night, U.S. and Mexican officials said Tuesday. At least eight people were killed in a Monday night gun battle in Reynosa and four more people were found dead in Miguel Alemán on Tuesday, the officials said. The dozen slayings came after a civilian was killed Sunday night, caught in the crossfire between suspected cartel members and the Mexican army outside a Matamoros shopping center.
