  • MSNBC host’s conspiracy theory: What if Putin planned the Syrian chemical attack to help Trump?

    The Washington Post ^ | 4/8/2017 | Avi Selk
    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis. A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking...

    LAWRENCE, Mass. — A 15-year-old boy charged with killing a high school classmate whose headless body was found near a river said in a police report made public Monday that they had gone to smoke marijuana together and he had last seen the classmate alive. Mathew Borges was held without bail after pleading not guilty at his brief arraignment in Lawrence District Court on a murder charge. Borges is being prosecuted as an adult, so court proceedings were open. His lawyer, Edward Hayden, did not argue for bail. The body of 16-year-old Lee Manuel Viloria-Paulino was found near the Merrimack...
  • ‘Being Mad At A Presidential Candidate Is NOT A Reason To Call 911’: Police

    09/27/2016 7:39:06 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 35 replies
    LAWRENCE, Kan. — Some people just can’t wait to talk politics — prompting a Kansas police department to ask people to stop misusing the 911 system. The tweet from their official account reads: We realize politics can make emotions run high, but being mad at a presidential candidate in a debate is NOT a reason to call 911.” It’s not yet clear how many residents chose to call 911 instead of tweeting or posting on Facebook, nor what those individuals hoped the police might do for them. In an apparent effort to head off emergency calls later this evening, Lawrence...

    A Kansas furniture store owner is closing up shop and leaving town, but not before he tells other residents what he thinks about them. Bob Fyfe, the owner of Payless Furniture in Lawrence, has polarized the community by posting signs on a large truck in his store parking lot that attack the town. The main sign reads; 'Lawrence: Commie and Candy Ass Capitol [sic] of Kansas. Goodbye Obamaville.'

    State legislators are criticizing a $35 million bailout plan for the cash-strapped city of Lawrence, as Beacon Hill prepares to debate the proposal amid growing public outcry over the new mayor’s refusal to resign his state representative post. With the city nearing bankruptcy, a key legislative committee will launch discussions today of a measure that would allow Lawrence to take out millions in loans to repair its tattered finances, while appointing an outside overseer to help the city stabilize its budget. Facing a deficit of close to $25 million, the city is in danger of running out of money this...

    The Lawrence Board of Registrars met Friday evening to vote on whether or not provisional ballots and absentee ballots would be added to the election totals of Lawrence Mayor Willie Lantigua or Challenger Dan Rivera.

The Board of Registrars is comprised of Annie Medina, Larry Collopy and City Clerk Billy Maloney. After considering more than 41 provisional ballots and two absentee ballots that were “found” in the Election...

    LAWRENCE - A Trenton woman shoplifted $250 worth of dresses from Macy’s Saturday afternoon, pushed a security officer, and then led police on a one-mile car chase before crashing and fleeing into a marsh along the highway, police said today. Shabrika Laster, 24, was captured after a 20-minute police search of the marshy area near Route 1 and Interstate 95, Sgt. Joseph Amodio said. Laster was in Macy’s at Quaker Bridge Mall at around 3:10 p.m., and had allegedly stuffed $251.98 worth of dresses under her tube top. “She was approached by Macy’s security,” Amodio said. “She was stopped outside...

    Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Angry Liberals in America Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell is staring at me with the uncontrolled intensity usually reserved for serial killers and time-share salesmen. "We know how to get the country back to work. The government needs to lead the way." He folds a napkin in what looks like some expensive oyster bar, but is probably just a television studio backdrop. "The government has to get us back to work." O'Donnell already has a job. His job is to yell angry things on MSNBC. Most of his listeners...

    With two Supreme Court cases pending that could either reaffirm or remake an institution that forms the bedrock of society, the debate over "same-sex marriage" has come down to political celebrities brandishing clichés. All the world grows stupid. According to a February 20th report on a local Fox News station, Joe Darger and one of his wives are lobbying the Utah legislature to decriminalize polygamy. In the Sexual Wonderland America is traversing at breakneck speed, polygamy is the latest thing. Take a law professor, mix with The New York Times opinion page, stir well, and – voila – you have...

    A U.S. supercomputer has won back the crown in the never-ending battle for the world's most powerful supercomputer. Its victory is the latest milestone marking the steady climb of computing power all across the globe. The Top500 industry list gave its No. 1 ranking to the Sequoia supercomputer housed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California — a spot earned by Sequoia's ability to crunch 16.32 quadrillion calculations per second (16.32 petaflops/s). Such supercomputing power is used by the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration to simulate nuclear weapons tests for older weapons that have been sitting in the U.S. arsenal....

    ... Times are hard in the state’s poorest city. The mayor is under federal and state investigation for campaign-finance improprieties and other questionable behavior, while a state-appointed overseer is managing the city’s municipal budget. Lawrence’s public school system is in receivership — the former superintendent, Wilfredo Laboy, is under criminal indictment for fraud and embezzlement, and the high school dropout rate is more than 50 percent. Public-safety cuts have been drastic, and felony crimes have skyrocketed from 1,777 in 2009 to 2,597 during the first 11 months of 2011. Unemployment is as high as 18 percent, compared with the state...

    Leaders of an effort to oust controversial Lawrence [MA] Mayor William Lantigua are worried that they may not have collected enough signatures for their recall election petition to be approved. The anti-Lantigua forces collected 5,600 signatures, turning the last ones just two minutes before the Aug. 8 deadline, apparently exceeding the minimum of 5,232. But city officials have told the group and the local media that hundreds of the signatures have not met certification criteria and been rejected. The city’s Board of Registrars will make an official statement at 5 p.m. today. “During our effort to collect the signatures, many...

    Last November, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell proudly declared himself a socialist on national television. On Wednesday, "The Last Word" host took this a huge step further saying the whole idea that Americans are rugged individualists is an illusion because they're all really socialists (video follows with transcript and commentary): (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: From our first days as a nation, we have put our faith in free markets and free enterprise as the engine of America's wealth and prosperity. More than citizens of any other country, we are rugged individualists, a self-reliant people, with a healthy skepticism of too...
