    Cher gave a rousing introduction to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as she was being recognized and awarded a special mention at VH1’s “Trailblazer Honors.” The special, which will air on March 8 to mark the International Women’s Day, is meant to celebrate today’s "most respected politicians, entertainers, artists, activists, allies and icons who have dedicated their time and steadfast commitments to the women’s movement and beyond,” VH1 explained. Pelosi was introduced by Cher who took the opportunity to not only celebrate the Democratic speaker, but directly call out President Trump and “old white men.”

    Hillary denied ever telling the Benghazi relatives that it could be blamed on an anti-Muhammad video: "No. I understand the continuing grief at the loss that parents experienced with the loss of these four brave Americans. And I did testify, as you know, for 11 hours, and I answered all of these questions. Now, I can't - I can't help it that people think there has to be something else there." So the relatives of these deceased heroes are liars.

    President Obama said Americans were “better off now than when I came into office,” during a fundraiser Monday night outside of Washington. Obama also slammed congressional Republicans for their focus on the terror attack in Benghazi and the implementation of ObamaCare. The president told attendees at the high-dollar soiree in Potomac, Maryland that his Republican opposition in Congress had been “captured by ideologues” whose principal focus was on “how to make people sufficiently skeptical, so they can win the next election.” “The debate now is about what?” Obama asked. “Benghazi? ObamaCare? It becomes this endless loop.” Obama told donors that...

    H/T Cubachi This is a great example of why videos of NJ Governor Chris Christie speaking are described as porn for conservatives, this guy says what the "common folk" are thinking. This time he goes after the Obama administration and federal bureaucracy. After making a bid for hundreds of millions of dollars in federal education reform money, New Jersey fell three points short of receiving "Race to the Top" funding. The reason for falling shored was an error in one page the Christie administration's almost 2,000 page application. A question on the application asked for budget information comparing the 2008...

    Jerusalem (CNN) -- Palestinians hurled rocks and burned tires in several neighborhoods in East Jerusalem Tuesday to protest the reopening of a landmark synagogue after more than 60 years. Officers dispersed the crowd by firing stun grenades in one area, and village elders helped end the riots in another, said police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld. At least seven people in the Mount of Olives neighborhood were wounded when police fired rubber bullets. In all, 91 people were wounded in the clashes, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said. About 3,000 officers were deployed in the city after the militant group Hamas declared...

    I retired in late 2006 with a conservative financial plan in place that would last through the lives of my wife and myself and still leave a little something for the kids. My financial planner and I choose an appropriate asset allocation model and we needed only 5% returns to be in good shape. My wife and I planned on working or volunteering, but we could do things because we wanted to and not because we had to. After many years in corporate America, this was a great place to be. I am still in a little bit of shock...

    <p>ALBANY - Gov. David Paterson claims some opponents of same-sex marriage in New York who cite religious beliefs failed to act on their faith earlier when gays and lesbians were victimized. “The fact is that for years these same individuals ... not all of them, but many of them, who pronounce religious doctrine did not exercise it when young gay and lesbian students were being bullied and chastised for expressing their points of view,” Paterson told thousands of gay rights advocates lobbying in Albany on Tuesday.</p>

    Was the Stephenville UFO a National Security Threat? american chronicle Franklin D. Fields, Jr. Esq. Stephenville, Texas attracted worldwide attention earlier this year (Jan, 08) after residents sighted an unidentified flying object (UFO) that some say was a mile long. By news accounts, there were more than 30 residents to specifically report the sighting. It was front-page headlines in a large number of news forums. Many of the witnesses were interviewed on national television programs such as CNN´s Larry King Live. All of the witnesses were credible and none were shown to be perpetrating a hoax. They might have been...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York shopping mall is doing its part to stimulate the struggling U.S. economy by giving away $20,000 in cash to unsuspecting passers-by, hoping that handing out $50 bills will boost consumer confidence. ADVERTISEMENT People dressed as Uncle Sam and the Statue of Liberty started handing out $1 bills around the borough of Queens earlier in the week, then began shelling out $50 bills at the Atlas Park shopping center on Friday. Recipients are asked to spend or invest the money and told that if people have confidence in the economy it will become a...

When police arrived and inspected the vehicle, they found a decapitated body inside. They then found a human head in the parking lot where the caller first noticed the truck.

    My friends, my sister, and I were hanging out at a gay bar in West Hollywood last night (yes, really) because you can buy $1 draft beers during happy hour, and my little sister can flirt with men who won't actually try to take her home. She just moved out to Hollywood to live with me and, being only 29, she still likes to party. I'm the over-protective type, so I go with her and glower at anyone who gets too close.Because it was a gay bar, all the men I met there were... oh, what's the word... gay, yes,...

    Liberals like to claim that GW Bush is trapped in a quagmire in Iraq. However, when it comes to being captive to irrational thinking, no one can top liberals. Consider, please, the liberal position on several current issues and the quagmire such thinking produces: *Rising gasoline prices are devastating to working Americans,but protecting obscure organisms at the bottom of the food chain is of greater concern. Which is why drilling for oil & adding refining capacity are unacceptable. * Large profits are obscenely un-American, except when it comes to George Soros, Oprah Winfrey and other liberals. *Illegal aliens deserve driver’s...

    ...But Muhammad lived long before the invention of photography, and there are no likenesses of him by contemporaries. In other words, no one knows what he looked like. If you were to assemble a set of mugshots of dark, bearded men and ask any number of ordinary Muslims, imams, or even ayatollahs, which one most resembles Muhammad, they would be (over and above being scandalized by the very idea) quite unable to do so, though some might pretend... So, these cartoons created by some illustrators in Denmark -- what makes them "pictures of Muhammad"? Clearly, they are accepted as such...

Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...
