A witness who works at a business near the shooting site told CNN affiliate KOMO that she heard about 10 shots.

    ...After a lesson, while working in one of the cities known for a Gay lifestyle, I walked into a coffee shop across the street to test my new computer skills while they were still fresh in the brain pan. I was finishing a cup of the strong dark brew I prefer, the kind that will float a horseshoe. I was deep in concentration and exercising my keyboard, when out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a pair of loud colored long socks walking through the door to my right. The young horse girls like to wear the long...

    IT isnt news anymore when an Arab ruler facing mass protests pledges sweeping reforms. But Moroccos July 1 constitutional referendum may be the most significant development in the Arab world all summer. For the first time since the Arab Spring began, a population broadly embraced its leaders reforms and scaled back antigovernment demonstrations. In the weeks before the referendum, over 100,000 people had taken to the streets; after the vote only about 10,000 did. A sizable majority of Moroccans approved the new Constitution, which calls for King Mohammed VI to cede half his power to a prime minister appointed from...

    Rollcall ^ | June 20, 2011, Midnight | By Paul Singer
    On Nov. 5, 2009, at the behest of Rep. Michele Bachmann, thousands of tea party activists descended on the Capitol to vent their rage over the health care overhaul bill pending before Congress. The assembled activists chanted, "Kill the bill! Kill the bill!" and waved signs opposing a government takeover of health care but they may not have known that the same government was paying for the event. According to House expense reports, Bachmann and three conservative GOP colleagues Reps. Tom Price (Ga.), Steve King (Iowa) and Todd Akin (Mo.) each paid $3,407.50 that day, a total...

    Welcome to Saint Antfarm College in DUmmieland, New Hempshare. Behind me on the stage are the DUmmies who will be debating tonight's Republican debate. And tonight's debate will be different from any debate you've seen before in the history of the world. First of all, I will be your moderator, which makes it special right there. I am CNN's John King--I'm not Joe King. Second, nobody will be making any sense whatsoever--these are the DUmmies, remember. And third, I will be constantly grunting, interrupting, and generally rushing people along. I will take 45 questions to ask a question, and...

    You can tell Michele Bachmann had a great debut at the Republican primary debate in New Hampshire last night, because swarms of liberal writers are breaking off from their pursuit of Sarah Palins tour bus to dive-bomb her. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post decided to headline a basically complimentary assessment of Bachmanns debate performance as Bachmann assumes the position. He was riffing on CNN moderator John Kings instruction for the candidates to assume their positions at the lectern, which he turned into a rather tortured metaphor for the entire debate. (Milbank was watching a different debate than the rest...

    BANGKOK Thai authorities said Friday they arrested an American citizen on charges he insulted the country's monarchy, in part by posting a link on his blog four years ago to a banned book about the Southeast Asian nation's ailing king. The man is also suspected of translating, from English into Thai, portions of "The King Never Smiles" an unauthorized biography of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and posting them online along with articles he wrote that allegedly defame the royal family, said Tharit Pengdith, who heads the Department of Special Investigation, Thailand's equivalent of the FBI.

    Pig & a poke: Rep. King threat racist, tooBy S.A. MILLER Post Correspondent Last Updated: 4:21 AM, April 6, 2011 WASHINGTON -- The threatening package containing a bloody pig's foot sent to Rep. Pete King (R-LI) was as much a racist assault as it was religious hate mail, The Post has learned. The rambling note accompanying the porcine parcel proclaimed that "white bitches" would soon be naming their sons Mohammed, said a Capitol Hill source. The note contained anti-Semitic slurs, called the pig's foot a "Jew foot," taunted "kiss my black Muslim ass," and said King -- who is Catholic...

    Representative Peter King began hearings on the radicalization of Muslims in the United States last month. Today he is receiving bloody packages and threatening letters in the mail. It has been confirmed that Rep. King received a bloody pig's foot and a derogatory letter today. In the letter, there contained anti-Semitic ramblings and references to King's hearings. Who and why the letter was sent can only be speculated. However, with the evidence, it appears that a Muslim person upset with the hearings most likely sent the letter and pig's foot, as pork is forbidden in Islam and is thus considered...

The U.S. Capitol Police and U.S. Postal Service confirmed that there is an open investigation, though would not confirm the details of what was contained in the parcel because the investigation is ongoing. King's office, which did not see the parcel, referred all questions to the Capitol Police. According to...

    President Obama on Wednesday will call for a one-third cut in oil imports by 2020, part of a plan he says will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign petroleum. With rising gasoline prices at home and political turmoil throughout the Middle East, Obama will seek in a speech at Georgetown University to rally Americans and bickering lawmakers behind a program that draws about half of that import cut from energy savings and about half from greater energy production, according to Obama aides who briefed reporters Tuesday.

    The Legend of Lord Obaama Obaama was, according to legend, a Lord in the Land of the Far West. Although his parentage and birth were suspect, he yet remained desirous of power and prestige. Being suave, clean-spoken, and glib of speech, particularly when speaking with the aid of his personal Oracle, he ascended quickly through the ranks of the People's Party. Following a lofty speech before a gathering of the Party, he saw it in his power to aspire to the highest office in the land, held by the evil king, στιβεύς. (*) But not all was smooth. In order...

  • GOP leadership clashes with Reps King and Bachmann

    Much media attention has been paid to the efforts of Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to defund what has now been dubbed the ObamaCare Slush Fund, which is the $105 billion that Rep. Bachmann claims is hidden in the text of the Affordable Care Act. While many have jumped on board in debunking this stat, King and Bachmann are pressing forward in trying to eliminate this fund, introducing amendments on the House floor that would zero out this $105 billion. Republican leadership is not supporting them in their quest, however. According to a top aide for...

    Thanks to the irrepressible Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who is emerging as the most energetic and principled conservative leader of the 112th Congress, the Congressional Research Service published a report on Feb. 10 detailing how the Obama administration is planning to spend $105.5 billion that was put on an appropriations autopilot in the health care legislation the Democrat-majority Congress enacted last year. Unless the Republican-controlled House in this Congress can force President Obama to sign new legislation forbidding dispersal of this $105.5 billion, the administration will spend it to lay the basic foundations for a socialistic health care system in...
