    After a several day self-imposed silence, Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning, slamming both Snoop Dogg's recent controversial music clip and last night's MSNBC leak of his 2005 tax return.   Two days after rapper Snoop Dogg released a music video in which he shoots a "f--king clown" dressed as Trump with a toy gun, an angry Trump tweeted  "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!"   As the Wrap reported yesterday, a representative for the U.S. Secret Service said that...

    An Oregon woman who called in fake bomb threats to elementary schools asked for a higher prison sentence so she could take advantage of programs behind bars Tuesday. Jenelle Robyn Pinkston, 47, persuaded a Eugene judge to tack an extra year onto the two-year sentence prosecutors had recommended, according to the Register-Guard. She said she wanted more time for treatment in prison medical and mental health programs. "My biggest concern is that I get better," she said, referring to her post-traumatic stress disorder from childhood incidents. U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken complied with Pinkston's request, calling her "unheard of" demand...

    I consider Ken Starrs finest achievement was getting so many Democrats on board to abolish the independent counsel, an unaccountable and therefore unconstitutional office that the Supreme Court mistakenly upheld way back in the 1980s in Morrison v. Olson. Starrs genius was in revealing to Democrats that independent counsel investigations could target and harass Democratic presidents just as much as Republicans. And that was no fun. Likewise Im enjoying the Democrats sputtering now against Darrell Issas determination to hold Lois Lerner accountable for her clearly political targeting of conservative groups while she was at the IRS, because as with the...

    The mother of a baby whose body was found buried in their Hallandale Beach backyard in January was cleared for release from a Broward jail Monday, days away from the imminent birth of her fourth child. Brittney Sierra, 22, who is nine months pregnant, had her $100,000 bail eliminated after prosecutors announced they were downgrading charges against her stemming from the July 2011 disappearance of her 5-month-old son, Dontrell Melvin, whose buried remains were discovered in the backyard of the home where he lived with his parents.

    Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-OK), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today sent letters to several scientists, some of whom allegedly manipulated data to prove the scientific "consensus" of global warming, as well as to the inspectors general of several federal agencies, notifying them to retain documents related to the release of emails from the Hadley Center's Climate Research Unit. He also stated in a press release: The stakes in this controversy are significant, as it appears that the basis of federal programs, pending EPA rulemakings, and cap-and-trade legislation was contrived and fabricated. Moreover, it...

Cambria County Judge Norman Krumenacker said he respected the Amish's religious beliefs but had no choice but to sentence Swartzentruber to jail and fine him $1,000 for being in contempt of court.

    The American International Group is rapidly running through $123 billion in emergency lending provided by the Federal Reserve, raising questions about how a company claiming to be solvent in September could have developed such a big hole by October. Some analysts say at least part of the shortfall must have been there all along, hidden by irregular accounting. You dont just suddenly lose $120 billion overnight, said Donn Vickrey of Gradient Analytics, an independent securities research firm in Scottsdale, Ariz. Mr. Vickrey says he believes A.I.G. must have already accumulated tens of billions of dollars worth of losses by mid-September,...

Now, more ACORN offices around the U.S. are under investigation after police raided their Las Vegas office. ACORN representatives will tell you this is all politically motivated, because they register people who would tend to vote for democrats. Election officials say they are also registering lots of people, who do not even exist. Since investigators cleaned out their offices during a Tuesday morning raid, ACORN has been working to clean up its image and saying they were identifying registration fraud...
