    Seminole County deputies said Jake Bilotta, 22, and his roommate, 21-year-old Ian McClurg, enticed the victim to the Maitland home Monday under the pretext of going to a party, but instead stabbed him multiple times with a 7-inch chef’s knife, the Orlando Sentinel reported...

    The Hill ^ | 7/09/15 | Alexander Bolton
    Senate Republicans concede they are not likely to have enough votes to overturn President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran unless they can swing a key Democratic voice against the accord. They’re setting their sights on Hillary Clinton, vowing to tie her to the deal in hopes of pressuring her to oppose it. GOP leaders need 67 votes to override Obama’s expected veto and keep sanctions on Iran in place. The administration has not yet announced an accord but lawmakers expect it to come soon. “It could be a good policy strategy. It’s not going to be hard to come up...

    Bellingham Boy Fighting Flesh-Eating Bacteria SEATTLE, Wash. -- What started as a 'fat lip' from a fall, now has a local 6 year old Jake Finkbonner fighting to survive. The boy has necrotizing faciitis, a bacteria that is attacking his face. His family says the bacteria was consuming him before their eyes. The infection is so aggressive, antibiotics aren't enough. He’s had three surgeries so far to try to save his life. Jake’s father, Donny, (says)......all of us are praying for him, and we’re just in God’s hands.” Jake’s mother, Elsa says, “he didn’t have any facial features that were...

    Jake Owen has lost part of his right ring finger after sustaining serious injuries in an accident last month. The accident took place over July 4 weekend, while Owen was racing go-karts against Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer — both of whom are professional NASCAR drivers. He was wearing protective gear, but sustained a very serious hand injury despite his gloves. He had to have surgery just days later. “I shattered my fingers — the bones inside,” Owen said. “The doctor said it was like taking a cinderblock and dropping it on your hand. Like it spider webbed the bones...

    Yesterday, Stephanie Cutter, Deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, appeared on Jake Tapper’s show The Lead on CNN. During the segment Stephanie Cutter admitted she had attended meetings with then IRS Chief Douglas Shulman at the White House: “A couple of facts here that I think are important for us to stick by, number one, the only reason we know about these visits is because the president makes everything public. Number two, what we’re really looking at some of these visits… What we are looking at the number of times that Mr. Shulman was cleared into...

    On Wednesday, CNN anchor Jake Tapper dug into the controversial way in which members of President Barack Obama’s administration have apparently tried to intimidate whistleblowers in the government and the journalists that would investigate their stories. Tapper said that some, including the New York Times editorial board, have described the administration’s actions as “threatening fundamental freedoms of the press.” He warned Obama’s supporters to remember the precedent his administration is setting when a Republican next occupies the Oval Office. Tapper noted that the scandal surrounding the subpoenaing of Fox News reporter James Rosen’s personal telephone and email records is sarcastically...

    Mediaite ^ | 8/14/11 | Tommy Christopher |
    During his run as interim host of ABC’s This Week with…, Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper lobbied valiantly (but unsuccessfully) to get former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to appear on the program. While covering the shenanigans in Iowa this week, Tapper seized on the opportunity to finally get Palin to answer some “substantive questions,” but before Palin would face Tapper’s queries, she had priority business to take care of: “I’m gonna go meet a heifer first.” Tapper’s amused, bemused reaction was priceless. “A heifer first?” After a few minutes of milking the spotlight (setting the mooed?) at the Iowa...

    With stocks plunging on Wall Street, tensions were rising in today’s White House press briefing as ABC’s Jake Tapper relentlessly demanded Press Secretary Jay Carney explain exactly what it is that President Obama is doing to help create new jobs. When Carney suggested Obama is urging Congress to pass legislation, Tapper got agitated and responded, “so the same stuff he was doing a couple months ago, calling on Congress to pass things?”Critics of Obama will no doubt applaud Tapper’s efforts here, yet even supporters of the President can’t fault Tapper for forcefully demanding answers.

    Good Morning America's Jake Tapper on Thursday forced a completely unrelated rant by Patrick Kennedy into a story entirely on health care. Tapper pivoted off a statement by Senator Mitch McConnell that legislation on the subject is a "farce." He then spun, "For one Democrat, the force driving that farce- the media- who earned the scorn of Democratic Congressman Patrick Kennedy for focusing away from substance." Tapper then played a clip of the Rhode Island Representative screaming, "If anyone wants to know where cynicism is, cynicism is that there's one, two, press people in this gallery! We're talking about Eric...

    Police are hunting for four thugs wearing Yankees baseball caps who attacked a veteran Boston Fire Department commander outside a Charlestown firehouse, leaving him with a broken eye socket and 14 stitches across his forehead. But the deepest wound Lt. Christopher Corwin suffered in the assault was that his injuries forced him to miss a fellow firefighter’s funeral yesterday. Corwin, 42, was helping a tractor-trailer driver turn around, using the apron of Ladder 9/Engine 32’s lot in Sullivan Square around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night, when a dark-colored sedan allegedly tried to race around the truck, almost hitting another firefighter.

    ARCADIA -- Jake got around. Got to be pretty well known in Arcadia, in fact. He liked to hang out near the downtown courthouse. Folks grew to expect to see him there during daily walks. He got along with everyone. Some thought of him as "Arcadia's dog." "I think just about everybody who came to the courthouse has seen Jake," Garry Phillips said. Garry and Jake were buddies. Lived under the same roof. One day, while hanging out on the courthouse lawn, Jake met U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, who fawned over him and petted him. Cameras snapped pictures. Jake loved...

    THE CAVALRY [Rich Lowry ] Was just talking to someone who knows military matters and disaster relief, and has been following the situation on the Gulf Coast very closely. Several points (excuse the repetitions): --“The mayor and the governor are negligent and incompetent. The administration has tried to smooth out the chain of command, but she won't do it. The constitution says that the governor is in charge of the Guard.” (The Washington Post wrote about this on Saturday--and KJL excerpted the relevant bit in here.) --“None of those poor people were moved prior to the storm. They were told...

    Early Saturday morning, a golden retriever named Jake made history when he jumped from a boat near Alcatraz into the choppy bay and swam 1.2 miles to the San Francisco shoreline. He was the only dog among more than 500 swimmers who took part in the South End Rowing Club's 10th annual Alcatraz Invitational. Dog-paddling his way toward the front of the pack, Jake came in 72nd overall, leaving some serious swimmers seriously chagrined. His time was 41 minutes and 45 seconds. Reaching the shoreline next to the Hyde Street Pier to chants of "Jake! Jake! Jake!" the 4-year-old canine...
