  • Jeb Bush’s clock, Tim McGraw’s guitar: Among the $7,000 in gifts to Gov. Larry Hogan

    05/04/2016 12:00:02 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 7 replies
    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has received more than $7,000 worth of gifts since he took office in January 2015, mostly modest trinkets and items from well-wishers after the governor made his cancer diagnosis public. The gifts range from a $1 Livestrong bracelet to a $500 membership at Baltimore’s posh members-only Center Club, according to a filing with the State Ethics Commission. Hogan even reported two rosaries blessed at the Vatican, given to him and his wife by Pope Francis in Washington. The disclosure also shows the outpouring of support for the governor after he announced in June that he...

Will you also unhappily vote for Donald Trump like Governor Jindal or you going to follow other Republicans who say they'll go against the party and might even vote for Hillary Clinton? ALEX CASTELLANOS: I might even get happier and support Donald Trump. No, I think Governor Jindal was right on the money. Look there's a reason there is a Donald Trump. And that's because Americans are looking for an alternative to the way the country is going now. If you're a working person...

    A criminal complaint filed in federal court Wednesday offers new details about the kidnapping and killing of 11-year-old Ashlynne Mike. Authorities were led to Tom Begaye, 27, by a tip from one of his neighbors, according to the indictment. Begaye told authorities he was looking for a child to have sex with Monday afternoon and picked up Ashlynne and Ian Mike, who were playing in a ditch near their home. Ashlynne had injured her foot and agreed to get in Begaye’s car to get a ride. He took her to a desolate dirt road near the Ship Rock pinnacle, where...

    Remember the movie, Unstoppable? A massive, highly-toxic locomotive roars out of control, threatening to cause devastating havoc. To start with, nobody takes the threat seriously; it’s deemed a ‘coaster’ that can be easily stopped. But by the time the rescue team catches up with it, the train’s running on full power and has accelerated to maximum speed. At this point, the horrified experts consider deliberate derailment. The result? The train, by now a steaming, hooting, hissing beast, simply charges through the attempted derailment. I won’t spoil the ending for those who haven’t watched it.

    New York Times ^ | May 4, 2016
    If you listened much to Ted Cruz over these last furious months, you heard him talk frequently about “the abyss,” as in what this country was teetering on the edge of. If you listened to him over these last furious hours, you heard him mention the “yawning cavern of insecurity” that motivates Donald Trump and other bullies. Cruz should take up spelunking. He’s obviously fascinated by unfathomable depths, and with his loss in Indiana on Tuesday, his candidacy for the presidency is finished, giving him a whole lot of extra time. A new hobby is definitely in order.

    The head of Egypt’s State Information Service (SIS), Ambassador Salah Abdel Sadek, has attributed the rise of violence and extremism across the Arab world to children’s cartoon Tom and Jerry, video games and ‘violent’ movies. During a speech at a conference titled ‘The Media and the Culture of Violence’ at Cairo University, the Ambassador said that Tom and Jerry sets an idea in the viewer’s mind that violence is natural. “[Tom and Jerry] portrays the violence in a funny manner and sends the message that, yes, I can hit him…and I can blow him up with explosives.

    The European Central Bank announced Wednesday that it will phase out the 500 euro banknote because of concerns that this banknote "could facilitate illicit activities" ... Europe's top law enforcement officials maintain that the 500 euro banknote (worth about $576) makes it easy for criminals to launder money since it's so easy to move around undetected. In a report last year, Europol said cash was still the "instrument of choice" for terrorists and 500 euro notes were in high demand, though they're not popular for everyday transactions. ...

    Gun sales are up in Minnesota, so much so that some counties are having trouble keeping up with permit applications. Hennepin became the latest county to expand their permit application services, opening a second full-time permit to carry office in Brooklyn Park this week. "We've seen an exponential increase," Sheriff Rich Stanek said. In fact, the Sheriff's Office released numbers Tuesday showing they've seen a 16 percent increase in permit applications since 2014. Stanek said some attribute the rise in applications to recent mass shootings, a rise in violent crime, or Obama administration policies. Regardless, Stanek said the increase does...

Particularly by the media,” she said to MSNBC’s Tamron Hall. “How many times has Hillary Clinton been asked about the specific role in Benghazi outside of the testimony?” Pierson asked.

    Donald J. Trump is now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, but he is also keenly aware that many in his own party — and many Americans, frankly — are scared and anxious about the idea of him in the Oval Office. Even he is not sure how a deeply divided nation would adjust to the first 100 days of a Trump presidency. What he does know, however, is what he wants to do in those early months. In a series of recent interviews, he sketched out plans that include showdowns with business leaders over jobs and key roles for military...

The stories in this book of the band of brotherhood and the sacrifices of the colonists are beneficial for students in order for them to fully understand American values....

Rollins, who was Ronald Reagan's 1984 campaign manager, spoke on a conference call Wednesday with supporters of Great America, a super PAC that backs Trump.

"They're licking their chops," Rollins says of Clinton's team. "They think they're going to win this thing." Great America will likely conduct polls, collect opposition research and run...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans to suspend his run to be the GOP presidential nominee, a senior campaign advisor told NBC News on Wednesday. He had previously cancelled a planned event in order to make a Wednesday night statement in Ohio. Kasich was left the only man standing against Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary race after Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas suspended his run on Tuesday night.
  • The Primary is Over It's Time to Back Trump

    Other than the possibility of GOP convention shenanigans the primary is over. Trump is the nominee. Yet today on talk radio and in the punditry and elsewhere I see people still saying they won't support him. The most common objections- "Trump is not conservative." Perhaps, but (look them up) his stances on the issues have a big overlap with conservatism. More than Romney or McCain ever had. "He doesn't mean it" When the media went after him for his positions he still stood by them steadfast. Most republicans would have caved under such pressure. Trump did not. "His past is...

    Watching this year’s presidential nomination process from Australia has been a very interesting affair. I can’t say I’ve followed every single speech or piece of news, but I’ve certainly kept abreast of what is going on and have seen plenty of articles and commentary from people on my feed putting their opinions forward. What interests me the most are the people and media pundits who emphatically denounce Bernie Sanders and his supporters. The reasons all generally boil down to the fact that he is the reincarnation of Karl Marx and he wants to turn the U.S. into a communist state....

    According to KCEN TV, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives blasted water on the container found just outside Rosebud off Farm to Market Road 1963. Rosebud, about 40 miles southeast of Waco, is home to about 1,400 people. Flammable liquid and shotgun shells were found inside the container, according to Sheriff Parnell McNamara. He said the IED was designed to blow shrapnel and would have been "extremely dangerous" had it gone off. "Someone had made this to create lots of damage and harm," McNamara said.

    A huge wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta., destroyed an entire neighbourhood and burned homes and businesses in several others Tuesday, and continues to rage out of control. By late afternoon, the entire city of 60,000 had been ordered evacuated. Residents by the thousands fled the fire and for hours caused gridlock on Highway 63, even overwhelming oilsands work camps, where beds and meals were offered. Police were patrolling the highway with cans of gas, after fuel supplies ran out in Fort McMurray, Wandering River and Grasslands.
