    ...Funeral services were held this evening for 32-year-old Kathryn "Katie" Steinle. Her loved ones remembering her as an avid traveller who loved connecting with people until her life was cut short a week ago. That's when Kate was shot and killed while in her father's arms. Police say by this man, Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times from this country and had rapped up a string of felonies while in the U.S. The San Francisco sheriff had Sanchez in custody as recently as April but released him pursuant to San Francisco's "sanctuary city" policy where...

    Megyn Kelly is bucking the conventional wisdom of what it means to be a Fox News anchor. The take-no-prisoners newswoman isn’t afraid to throw hardballs at Republicans. She recently lectured Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul over his penchant for arguing with female reporters. She poked Jeb Bush about whether he would have invaded Iraq in 2003. She cornered Mike Huckabee for saying it was trashy for women to swear in public. Last year, she told Dick Cheney, “History has proven that you got it wrong” on Iraq. On Election Night 2012, she dared to question Karl Rove for claiming that Barack...
  • British Govt tried to kill BBC reporter Gilligan: ex-BBC official Greg Dyke

    10/17/2004 4:52:49 PM PDT · by DeaconBenjamin · 34 replies · 1,044+ views
    Greg Dyke, former director general of the BBC, has claimed that the British Government "tried to kill" Andrew Gilligan. Reporter Gilligan broke the story that British intelligence had "sexed up" a dossier on Iraq that sought to justify Britain's support for US-led invasion of the country. "The Government tried to kill him," claimed Dyke about Gilligan, who was forced out of his job at the BBC in January in the wake of the Hutton report that inquired into the death of scientist David Kelly. Kelly was the main source for Gilligan. Dyke was speaking at the Cheltenham Festival of Literature...

    Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez said he wasn't concerned that the team signed Tim Tebow, because the Eagles told him Tebow was just there to throw in camp. "We needed another guy to throw while Sam's (Bradford) still recovering. So that's the reason (for the signing), at least as explained to me," Sanchez said, per CSN Philadelphia. The Eagles signed Tebow on Monday. He hasn't played in the NFL since getting cut by the Patriots at the end of training camp prior to the 2013 season. He spent last year as a television analyst for the SEC Network

    As occasional sparring partners over issues like white privilege and income inequality, Fox News anchors Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly are accustomed to not always seeing matters the same way. So it was that the two stars of Roger Ailes’ network parted ways over a recent New York Times Magazine profile of Kelly. The largely glowing piece, by the magazine’s Jim Rutenberg, depicts Kelly as a serious, hard-charging journalist, unlike some people featured on the nation’s premiere conservative network. During Monday night’s “O’Reilly Factor,” the host dinged Rutenberg’s profile as a “puff piece,” bemoaning that other Fox personalities don’t receive...

Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident...

A university official pleaded with the goons, er, students to permit Kelly to speak, reminding them that they would be free to express disagreement during the Q-and-A session afterwards. "Shout him down!" responded a man in the audience, and the crowd did. Episodes like this are tolerated in America because college faculties, administrators and the press almost uniformly share the students' prejudices and haven't the spine...

With more than two-thirds percent of precincts counted, the former state lawmaker had about 77 percent of the vote to about 16 percent for Republican Paul McKinley, an unemployed political activist and ex-convict. The rest of the vote went to a Green Party candidate and three independent candidates who made the special general election ballot.

The gun is actually Giffords's, but Kelly shoots it and wasn't shy about admitting he had a 17-round magazine in it. Ironically, 17 rounds exceeds the 10 round limit that was being pushed in the Senate in February when Kelly spoke in favor of banning them. Nevertheless, after CNN filmed Kelly target shooting, he justified using a 17-round magazine for the...

    Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.), on Sunday warned GOP lawmakers not to filibuster efforts to pass gun control in the Senate. "It is important to take action and the American people are demanding action now," said Kelly on “Fox News Sunday.” Kelly’s comments came in response to five Senate Republicans — Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah) and James Inhofe (Okla.) – who said last week that they will filibuster any additional gun restrictions, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) prepares to move a gun bill.

Our own columnist A.J. Delgado, however, pointed out...

    A Tucson gun store owner has decided to rescind the sale of a military-style rifle to Mark Kelly, the husband of former U.S. Rep.

    The owner of a Tucson gun store where Mark Kelly recently purchased an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle canceled the transaction because Kelly did not plan to keep the rifle for his personal use.

    "While I support and respect Mark Kelly's 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then for his personal use. In light of this fact, I determined that it was in my company's best interest to terminate this transaction prior to his returning to my store to complete the Federal From 4473 and NICS background check required of Mr. Kelly before he could take possession this firearm....
