    Democrats are cheering a new poll which shows that likely 2018 voters shift 33 points away from incumbent GOP legislators once they are given negative information about House Speaker Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill. “Voters [in GOP districts] move from approving of their congressperson by 12 points(46% approve, 34% disapprove) to disapproving by 21 points (35% approve,56% disapprove) — a net shift of 33 percentage points,” says Priorities USA, which commissioned the poll of 1,001 likely voters into the popularity of Ryancare, or the American Health Care Act. The Ryancare bill is intended to supplant Obamacare’s takeover of the nation’s healthcare...

    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...

    Trump has re-engineered the political landscape. Fret among patriots is leaving the building. Hit pieces are now being rightly impuned as contrived, weak and stupid. Laughter breaks out as dim witted groupthinkers in the MSM stuggle to obey editor demands. Editors stuggle to fulfill the production demands of their political overlords. Lawyers pretending to be objective on air journalists can't get the kill shot off. In fact, the sidewinders turn back on them with a vengence. Trump has turned the hit piece into the "miss piece".

    Tiffany Stevens, 39, was sentenced in Hartford Superior Court eight months after a jury deadlocked and a mistrial was declared in her attempted-murder case. The hit was never carried out. Simsbury police arrested Stevens in July 2012, alleging she paid a handyman $5,000 to kill her ex-husband, Eric Stevens. Authorities said the handyman instead disclosed the plan to the ex-husband, who told police. Police said Eric Stevens had told them that whoever won custody of his daughter would control a $50 million fund, but Tiffany Stevens' father testified that was untrue. And despite an attempted murder against Tiffany Stevens, a...

    The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has knocked down an Obama administration request to lift a stay issued earlier this year on the implementation of President Obama's December 2014 executive action on illegal immigration. His executive action shields 5 million illegal immigrants in the United States from immediate deportation. In February, Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen first issued the stay and denied a request for it to be lifted by the administration in April. Hanen also publicly scolded Department of Justice attorneys, slammed Homeland Security for failing to comply with the stay and questioned President Obama's integrity over the issue....

    Rudy is doubling down. Former mayor Rudy Giuliani acknowledged his speech criticizing President Obama’s patriotism last week “hit a nerve” but went even further Sunday denouncing the president’s foreign policy agenda. “I said it maybe 30 times before but somehow this time it hit a nerve, maybe because the president is on such defense for his unwillingness to face Islamic terrorism,” Giuliani told John Catsimatidis on 970 AM The Answer. “We need a American president more like Ronald Reagan who gave us a sense of optimism,” said Giuliani. “There’s something about his unwillingness to talk about Islamic extremist Muslims that...

    Chinese eye 'supercavitation' technology as future of underwater travel China has moved a step closer to creating a supersonic submarine that could travel from Shanghai to San Francisco in less than two hours. New technology developed by a team of scientists at Harbin Institute of Technology's Complex Flow and Heat Transfer Lab has made it easier for a submarine, or torpedo, to travel at extremely high speeds underwater. Li Fengchen, professor of fluid machinery and engineering, said the team's innovative approach meant they could now create the complicated air "bubble" required for rapid underwater travel.

    Shortly after Israel's Operation Protective Edge in Gaza began 27 days ago, Hamas released a video clip of a song it produced that calls on Palestinian Arabs to carry out terror attacks. The clip is in Hebrew, however, and appears to mostly be intended for demoralizing Israelis. video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmL3lpXW4KU Surprisingly, though, Israelis found the tune of “Attack! Carry Out Terror Strikes” extremely catchy. Making it even more fun was the flowery Hebrew, dotted with nonexistent words sung in a heavy Arab accent, all of which led to the song's becoming a summer hit. It has since spawned numerous covers and...

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday it is working with the three manufacturers of intravenous saline solutions commonly used to hydrate hospital patients to address a shortage caused by a spike in demand. To cope with the shortage, healthcare providers are using substitute products such as oral hydration fluids or smaller IV saline bags with slower drip rates when appropriate, said Bona Benjamin, director of medication use quality improvement for the American Society of Health System Pharmacists. "We have heard from our members all over the country that the shortage is serious," Benjamin said. "People are able...
