  • Watch: Dem congressman eats Skittles during IRS impeachment hearing

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D.-Ill., took a shot at Donald Trump Wednesday by eating Skittles while questioning IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Wednesday during his impeachment hearing. "Every now and then I get a bad Skittle," Gutierrez said, adding that the few "bad" candies didn't persuade him to "ban them all."

    The tiny farming community of Louise was an exception in a Deep South where resistance to resettling refugees from the Syrian conflict was ramping up after the attacks in Paris. Those opposed say extremists could be among those who are resettled. At the same time that this small rural community was welcoming refugees, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said he would do "everything humanly possible" to keep refugees from his state. Then, last Tuesday, the votes of the month-long referendum in Louise were counted: the tally was 37 against and three in favor of welcoming refugees, according to Mayor Thomas Ruffin...
  • Slain Omahan's relative says immigration crackdown might have prevented her death

    A relative of an elderly Omaha woman who was raped and killed last year said Saturday that the brutal crime may have been prevented if the United States strictly enforced immigration laws. “What we’d like to have is the federal government to secure our borders,” said Bill Hartzell, 60, of Council Bluffs. “There’s a chance my grandmother would be still alive if our borders were secured.” Hartzell is the husband of Teresa Hartzell, a granddaughter of 93-year-old Louise Sollowin. Sollowin died three days after Sergio Martinez- Perez, a Mexico native in the U.S. illegally, broke into her South Omaha home,...

    We all love Grama. But it’s time to take away the keys. It’s not about how many years she’s been driving. It’s not about all the great things she’s done. It’s not about how much you appreciate and respect her. It’s not about yesterday, it’s about today. It’s about common sense and realizing that this can’t go on. She can’t do today what she did yesterday, and the passage of time has done what the passage of time does. She won’t want to give them up. She will be certain that she’s still capable. She might even fight you over...

    Rep. Louise Slaughter said she will not host in-person town hall meetings to discuss reform of the health care system, but will hold giant conference calls with constituents instead. “I think it’s a way to disseminate misinformation,” Slaughter said. “They’re not debating things that are in the bill.” By discussing the bill, H.R. 3200 over the phone, she can reach as many as 9,000 constituents, including those who couldn’t make a meeting or those who lack child care, she said. Slaughter’s absence at town hall meetings has caused some residents to ask where she is, and “Where’s Louise?” buttons have...
  • Our take: Delmar and Louise talk politics

    The Patriot Room ^ | August 9, 2009 | Clyde Middleton
    Since the dems have brushed off the health-care experts nee commercial actors Harry and Louise to lead us all over the ObamaCare cliff, we may as well trot out our own experts. Delmar is unemployed, and has been since the Oil Embargo of 1973. It’s a political stand more than an inability to find a job. He lives in rural Kentucky. The nearest employer to his home is 14 miles. He refuses to buy gasoline because, he says, “the money just goes to them Arabs. That ain’t good.” He’s a Vietnam vet with a bum left leg that prevents him...

    Canadian coincidences are piling up in the UN’s Oil-for-Food Program. Fox News reported on Tuesday that Annan's #2 Blocks Oil-for-Food Scrutiny. Kofi Annan’s #2 is Canada's Louise Fréchette. Louise Fréchette served under Prime Minister Paul Martin when he held the title of Canada's Minister of Finance. According to Fox News, "Four years into the seven-year Oil-for-Food program with graft and mismanagement by then rampant, Fréchette intervened directly by telephone to stop United Nations auditors from forwarding their investigations to the UN Security Council." Born in Montreal, Louise Fréchette has served directly under UN Chief Kofi Annan since March 1998. According...
  • Christmas With Louise (a HOOT!)

    This is an article submitted to a 1999 Louisville Sentinel contest to find out who had the wildest Christmas dinners. This won first prize. As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor pantyhose hung sadly empty. One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and went in search of...
