    YouTube: Donald Trump Speeches & Events ^ | 7/19/2016 | Donald J. Trump, Jr.
    Donald Trump Jr. is only 38 years old, but his mastery of the speaking and motivational art is way beyond his years. Have a listen.  It was a great speech: brimming with zingers and nuggets of wisdom.  In fact, I'm gonna have another listen because I want to take away more of his great points. This young guy's got it all: the inner strength, powerful delivery, good looks, and smarts.  In fact his Wikipedia profile says he speaks fluent Czech. If he wants it, this guy has got a great future in politics.

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson says he has not visited since his son reported to federal prison late last month. **SNIP** "Well his health has been recovering and that has been, as father, the most important thing to me. He has been diligent in doing his work. And I have nothing further to say about that," Rev. Jackson said at the Capitol Thursday (11/7).
  • California College Forbids Passing Out Constitutions...On Constitution Day

    In a stunning illustration of the attitude taken towards free speech by too many colleges across the United States, Modesto Junior College in California told a student that he could not pass out copies of the United States Constitution outside the student center on September 17, 2013—Constitution Day. Captured on video, college police and administrators demanded that Robert Van Tuinen stop passing out Constitution pamphlets and told him that he would only be allowed to pass them out in the college’s tiny free speech zone, and only after scheduling it several days or weeks ahead of time. The Foundation for...

    **SNIP** The Jacksons will learn their fate Wednesday after a fall from grace in which he quit Congress and she resigned from the Chicago City Council and both pleaded guilty to felonies involving a spending spree with $750,000 in campaign cash. **SNIP** Berman agreed with a point made by Jackson Jr.'s lawyers, who told the court: "The harsh spotlight of the media that has followed him at every step of the investigation, his plea and his sentencing has already punished Mr. Jackson and his family immeasurably." Berman said the Jacksons, not being "run-of-the-mill tax cheats," had endured stigma and loss...

  • Plenty of question marks in Jackson's final House financial disclosure

    Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has filed his final House financial disclosure report more than six months late, a filing that sheds little light on how he will pay a $750,000 forfeiture for looting his campaign treasury. **SNIP** The Tribune reported last month that Jackson Jr. appears eligible for federal disability payments of $8,700 a month, or 60 percent of his congressional pay. That works out to $104,400 a year, though payments in later years would drop to $69,600 annually. On top of the financial hit from his criminal case, Jackson Jr. could have another one: a possible $200 late...

  • A quarter of junior doctors drop out of NHS training as EU ruling limits time spent on wards

    Daily Mail ^ | 9/6/10 | Paul Bentley
    An EU ruling that limits the amount of time junior doctors spend on wards during the day has led to almost a quarter dropping out of NHS training after two years. And of those trainee doctors who do continue their training, more than a fifth are now turned down because they lack sufficient skills or experience. The findings come from first survey into doctors’ training since the chaotic introduction of a European directive which has put a cap on the working hours of junior doctors. Under the Working Time Directive, which was fully implemented in the NHS last August, junior...

    NEW YORK – Now that the government has given up trying to put him in prison, John "Junior" Gotti says he may leave New York and try his hand at writing true crime stories. The son of notorious Gambino boss John Gotti held a celebration dinner Friday at a restaurant in Westbury on Long Island. Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday that after a series of hung juries they wouldn't seek a fifth retrial against the younger Gotti, who says he quit the mob in 1999. ... He says it may be "better for everybody" if he moves away.

    CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) -- U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. said Friday that he was fighting to get "my name back" after he was identified as "Senate Candidate 5" in a criminal complaint against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. says neither he nor any emissaries offered favors in exchange for a Senate appointment. Jackson, the son of famed civil rights leader Jesse Jackson and a six-term Democratic congressman from Chicago, had publicly sought to succeed President-elect Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate. Jackson had talked to Blagojevich, the person with the sole power to make the appointment, on...

    CHICAGO (AP) – A lawyer for U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. says the congressman is the “Senate Candidate 5” mentioned in the federal corruption complaint against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Attorney James D. Montgomery Sr. said Wednesday that Jackson never had a “pay-to-play” conversation with Blagojevich. The governor is accused of trying to profit from his authority to appoint a replacement to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat. Montgomery says Jackson “never authorized anyone to seek the governor’s support” for anything of value. And he says Jackson isn’t aware of any associates having made such an overture on his behalf.

    I just caught Jesse Jackson junior on CNN; he was commenting on how unfair it is that McCain's campaign is bringing up Ayers, when after all Obama was only eight during his bombing days. He equates Sen. McCain's senatorial relationship with Trent Lott and Strom Thurmond with Obama's relationship with Ayer's et. al. This line of reasoning is poor on so many levels. Neither Thurmond nor Lott ever blew up any buildings. Neither Thurmond nor Lott are or ever were communists. McCain was never a "community organizer" alongside either of these people. Ayers was never elected to office. The most...

    With only hours to go before the polls close, former 9th District congressman Harold Ford Jr., now head of the Democratic Leadership Council, has joined in on the mounting chorus of criticism of recent TV ads by Nikki Tinker, who is challenging current incumbent Steve Cohen in today's Democratic primary. Ford's statement is as follows: "Whenever race, religion or gender is invoked in a political contest, it generally means the candidate has run out of legitimate arguments for why he/she should be elected. Communities and nations are always made weaker when political figures try to divide us for political advantage....

    CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (Oct. 12, 2007) -- Minutes away from the armed gates that lead into the villages and cities of Iraq’s Al Anbar Province, Marines work long hours, supplying units with everyday essentials and gear needed for combat. Without their hard work and tireless dedication, war efforts would slow, transition would start to backslide and progress would halt. Without them, units would struggle to get by, and though this job does not come with many purple hearts or combat action ribbons, those who work here know they are the bloodline to the mission in Iraq.
