    Sources say Bill Clinton is in rough shape. . Sources close to the Clinton family say that Slick Willy, 40th President of the United States and perpetual cheater, will be lucky to make it through the end of the week. The Clinton family, including extended relatives and members of the Rodham clan, have been filing into Little Rock all week where Bill is reportedly bedridden at the residence attached to his presidential library. The fact that they’re booking rooms and sticking around most likely means they’re expecting to have to stay for a funeral. The Clintons have said that they...
  • Bad feeling for Trump in Indiana from this Hoosier (vanity)

    05/02/2016 7:00:04 AM PDT · by Trump-a-licious · 231 replies
    I'm a staunch Trump supporter who lives in Indiana, I have a really bad feeling about Tomorrow. I was listening to an AM station out of Fort Wayne, they're firmly in the Ted Cruz camp. They were talking about how Ted and Pence we're criss crossing the state today, seriously, the schedule is insane, the wives are also criss crossing to a different set of towns. Sadly, a lot of folks in Indiana are none to bright and what I'd call followers, they basically fall for the MSM stuff easily.Clearly Pence is on board with the GOP establishment, why else...

  • Threats to CT Police Escalate Following CT Cop’s Gun Confiscation Comments–Cops Ask Pro-Gun

    03/14/2014 1:52:25 PM PDT · by Nachum · 56 replies
    There have been reports that Navy veteran John Cinque has been receiving threats because of his stance on the issue of Connecticut's gun registration law. Apparently those reports are due to a misreading of a piece by the New Haven Register in which Cinque said, "There have been threats made — that I found out about today." Freedom Outpost reached out to John Cinque, who spoke with us this morning and confirmed that the threats he was speaking about were towards the Branford Police, not towards him. "The cops are having the threats…. they are scared," he told us. According...

    WASHINGTON – Helen Thomas, a pioneer for women in journalism, has died, Fox News confirms. She was 92.

According to friend Muriel Dobbin, Thomas had been ill for al ong time, and in and out of the hospital before coming home Thursday. Thomas made her name as a bulldog for United Press International in the great wire-service rivalries of old, and as a pioneer...

    A Mexican national was executed Thursday for the rape-slaying of a teenager after the U.S. Supreme Court turned down a White House-supported appeal to spare him in a death penalty case where Texas justice triumphed over international treaty concerns. Humberto Leal, 38, received lethal injection for the 1994 murder of Adria Sauceda. She was fatally bludgeoned with a piece of asphalt. Leal was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m. EDT (2221 GMT).

    I have no idea if I'm doing this right, so I hope somebody can fix whatever I mess up. I am so sorry for not posting sooner, but the last couple of days have been a blur. The surgery on Tuesday didn't actually start until noon even though we signed in at 7:30 am and they took Jeff to the OR around 10:30. We got our final report at 10 pm. By 11:00 pm I was able to go to his room in the ICU. He did very well during the surgery. Coming out of the anesthesia was a little...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Times Co. says its first-quarter losses worsened amid a dramatic downturn in advertising revenue at its newspapers. The setback announced Tuesday was even worse than pessimistic analysts had anticipated. The publisher of The New York Times and The Boston Globe lost $74.5 million, or 52 cents per share, in the first quarter. That compared with a loss of $335,000 at the same time last year. That was break-even on a per-share basis. This year's first-quarter results included charges totaling 18 cents per share to cover the costs of jettisoning employees and other special...

    The long, painful ordeal of Marine 1st Lt. Andrew Grayson came to a sudden end Wednesday when a jury of seven fellow Marine officers found him not guilty of trumped-up charges that should never have been leveled against him in the first place. As Newsmax reported on Sept. 11, 2007, Grayson earned the enmity of prosecutors when he turned down their offer that would spare him from prison if he would agree to testify against fellow 3rd battalion, 1st Marines. "I was asked by the prosecution to fall on my sword for the greater good of the Marine Corps,'' Grayson,...

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 7/7/06 | Greg Moran
    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy ordered Friday that his temporary stay protecting the Mount Soledad cross extend until state and federal courts can hear the city of San Diego's appeal this fall. In blocking a federal judge's order that the city remove the cross by Aug. 1 or face a daily fine of $5,000, Kennedy also indicated that the full court may want to review the controversial case. Kennedy said the court, which refused three years ago to get involved in the dispute, may consider it because of two new factors favorable to cross proponents. He cited legislation to...

    Najaf, Mosul and the Iraqi economy: These were the three pillars of President Bush's speech yesterday before the Council on Foreign Relations, and they are three of the best reasons why Howard Dean is utterly wrong to predict American defeat in Iraq. One wouldn't know it from the acrimonious debate in Washington, but the two former trouble spots are rapidly joining the 80 percent or so of Iraq that suffers little or no violence, while the Iraqi economy is looking better than it has in years.
