    The use of heroin has risen over the past few years in the Hudson Valley. In part one of News 12's special report "Hooked on Heroin," Tara Rosenblum speaks with parents who have lost children to the drug.

The parents Rosenblum spoke to all say they never would have expected their children to become addicted to heroin. Some of them also shared their...

    Conservative PR guru and Reagan biographer Craig Shirley has an excellent piece over at Breitbart in which he explains why it is utterly detestable that anti-American leftist Jane Fonda was cast as Nancy Reagan in the new Hollywood film Lee Daniels´ The Butler, and not, it´s not just her infamous pose with North Vietnamese anti-aircraft guns. Fonda, Shirley notes, sought to slam the door on Vietnamese "boat people" who were fleeing the brutal Communist regime, while other Americans across the political spectrum -- Shirley commends leftie folk singer Joan Baez for her advocacy of the boat people -- stood up

    In a breathless puff from Roger Friedman of Showbiz411.com, Oprah Winfrey is predicted to win an Oscar for her performance as the White House butler’s wife in the upcoming feature film The Butler starring Forrest Whitaker. Friedman hyperventilates: Oprah is simply off the charts mesmerizing as Gloria. It’s as if she’d been acting this whole time. (Some will say she has been, but I disagree.) Among the many powerful performances in this landmark movie, Winfrey jumps out because of her long absence from the screen.

    Jane Fonda´s turn as Nancy Reagan has outraged fans of the former first lady but the actress says "The Gipper´s" wife is happy she landed the role. "I don´t think that whatever differences there might be in our politics really matters you know," says the actress in a new clip promoting the film ´The Butler´ which follows the life of a White House worker who served eight presidents.

    Lee Daniels' The Butler doesn't hit theaters until October, but the drama about the long-serving head butler at the White House already is being targeted by conservatives because of Jane Fonda's role as Nancy Reagan. So far, backlash to The Weinstein Co. release is fairly muted -- bloggers have disparaged the casting, and a Facebook page is promoting a boycott -- but chatter about the liberal activist has picked up recently. "The moviemakers are free to choose, but it seems like it was their way of giving people like me the middle finger," says Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and...

    The republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, continues to face a slew of questions regarding his vast wealth. With a net worth of over $200 million, the former Massachusetts governor has been ridiculed throughout his campaign for his inability to relate to many Americans who are currently struggling. In an interview broadcast on Thursday, Fox’s Bill Hemmer asked the GOPer and his wife, Ann, about their immense wealth. “Back to the connection [with the voters’] aspect of this. There will be people...who will look at you and just say, ‘successful rich guy,’” Hemmer put to him. In response, Romney likened himself...

Truly obscene.The latest iteration comes from Elliott Abrams writing in National Review, quoting pieces of a single speech Newt apparently gave on the floor of the House on March 21, 1986, in which Newt criticized certain foreign policy decisions of the Reagan administration. Abrams does not link to the full speech or to other speeches of...

    With all due respect to Nancy Reagan, her proposal that the first Republican debate of the 2012 season be held at the Reagan Library in the spring of 2011 is worse than a nonstarter. The country needs to focus on the hugely important congressional debates this spring, not on made-for-MSM, liberal-dominated GOP wrestling matches. The idea is itself an insult to conservative activists and new media. A quick rejection by GOP candidates of the presumptuous declaration of inevitability by Politico.com and NBC that they would be in charge would go a long way toward recognizing that these outlets, like most...

    Years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev were sitting in a backyard near Stanford, where Shultz was teaching. The two men discussed what they thought was the turning point in ending the Cold War. Gorbachev said it was two leaders — he and President Ronald Reagan — sitting in a room together, talking. Shultz said it was Reagan’s decision to show military might in 1983 by sending missiles to West Germany. “The strength we put on display was never used,” Shultz said. “Strength works hand in...

(AHN) - Republicans on Monday decried President Barack Obama's lifting of the ban on embryonic stem cell research, but former First Lady Nancy Reagan, whose husband had suffered from Alzheimer's disease, welcomed the decision and said she is "grateful" to the President. Obama signed an executive order on Monday reversing the eight-year ban on research using embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent cells that exist only within five days of embryonic development. They have an indefinite capacity for self-renewal, making them ideal for tissue replacement and for treating diseases, including degenerative diseases, spinal cord injuries, diabetes...

"I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances," he joked.

    I guess this is the new and bi-partisan Washington President Elect Obama was talking about... In his first interview since winning the election, Politico reports on the following "Obama was asked at his press conference today if he'd spoken to all the "living" presidents. "I have spoken to all of them who are living," he responded. "I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any séances." ::Open Mouth, Insert Foot:: I bet you his new staffers were thinking "Perhaps we took him off the teleprompter too soon..."

    Say what you will about President George W. Bush, but I don't recall him ever mocking an elderly widow in his pronouncements. But Barack Obama couldn't get through his first press conference as president-elect without doing just that. Answering a question from Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times as to the presidents he has consulted during the transition, Obama took a gratuitous jab at Nancy Reagan.
