    Widely regarded as one of the best and most influential films of all time, Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 gangster epic The Godfather turned many of its shooting locations - as well as its lead actors - into movie icons. Visit the scenes of the crimes of the Corleone family in the US and Sicily and you'll discover that they have a few dark - or at least intriguing - tales of their own.

    As if the Russia probe didn’t feel enough like a soap opera, now comes word that two of the major players have a familial connection. Richard Cullen, partner at McGuireWoods, was recently hired as Mike Pence’s attorney. Turns out Cullen is close with another attorney turned blogging fodder, James Comey. So close, in fact, that Cullen is the godfather to one of Comey’s daughters. As reports: But other parts of his resume attracted even more interest. For three years, Cullen worked at a Richmond law firm with a central figure of the Russia investigation: FBI Director James Comey, who...

    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...

    “I didn’t feel good about it”. Washington loves waving away questions after a scandal with a commission or a review board. The so-called Accountability Review Board on Benghazi whose results the media trumpeted as answering all the questions about what happened was rigged from the start. Thomas Pickering is a highly partisan figure who, among other things, is a key Iran Lobby figure. A few scapegoats were served up without actually firing them. But the process was apparently even more tainted by the Clintons as the latest Gowdy hearings have shown. ... They were never independent, but this completes the...

    Vice President Joe Biden demonstrated that he is slipping deeper into senility this week when he gave a speech swearing that he once violently ambushed an unsuspecting kid who allegedly kicked his sister off of her bicycle. The tale told by Biden bore a remarkable resemblance to a scene in “The Godfather,” in which Sonny Corleone pummels Carlo Rizzi for abusing Corleone’s pregnant sister, Connie.

    On March 29, 1971, The Godfather, considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made, began principal photography in New York City. Because the film is a period piece,The Godfather actually presents a fascinating record of what 1940s-era New York City locations still existed in the early-1970s. Sadly, many of them are now gone. What still remains? Let’s take a closer look.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | December 8, 2011 | Daniel Henninger, deputy editor, editorial page
    Most press accounts of Barack Obama's speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, Tuesday described it as delivered by the "president of the United States." And indeed the person delivering it analogized himself to Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Bill Clinton. In fact, the Osawatomie speech was not given by the President of the United States. It was given by the leader of the Democratic Party. Most of the time, this distinction isn't a problem in the United States because historically people have tended to think that the office of the presidency represents "all the people." This doesn't mean everyone...

    Business owners Dee and Gene Liboff of Woodland Hills, California, just wanted to show their support for Mitt Romney in the coming election by putting up a handmade sign in front of their home. But what they were shown in return is the ugly side of some Obama supporters. Ever since putting up the sign, the Liboffs, who are members of the San Fernando Valley Patriots, have been engaged in a running war with vandals who have cut, pulled down, torn apart and ripped the sign out of the ground. Every time it happens, the Liboffs get out the tape...
