    LITTLE FALLS, Minn. — A Minnesota man who killed two teenagers who broke into his home can be heard on an audio recording talking to himself for hours after the shooting and at one point, apparently describing the slain teens as "vermin." Byron Smith, of Little Falls, faces first-degree premeditated murder charges in the deaths of 18-year-old Haile Kifer and 17-year-old Nick Brady on Thanksgiving Day in 2012. Smith, 65, claimed he was defending himself and feared for his life after several break-ins at his home. Prosecutors, though, say Smith planned the killings. They say he sat in a chair...
  • McCain and the POW Cover-Up

    The American conservative ^ | July 1, 2010 | Sydney Schanberg
    John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence...

    Close inspection of the image "properties" of photos of Obama included in the whitehouse.gov website reveal the word "hero" in their file path names. "Right click" the above photo, scroll to properties, drag the popup window corner right and view the file path names.. The word "hero" is fundamental to the file path. (example of filename path: www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/imagecache/home_hero_rotator_main/hero_feature/hero_image/hero_greatwall_LJ-0160.jpg) Is this a bad case of EGO, or is the word "hero" some sort of file structure term I'm not aware of? Could it be possible Obama is the whitehouse.gov's webmaster? LOL

    ... "Senator Kerry has offered to meet privately with President Bush to discuss foreign policy before Bush flies abroad next week and has meetings with key European leaders. Kerry..." No, I'm not kidding. Kerry actually called Bush and said he "offered to get together with him to discuss foreign affairs." I guess because Kerry just got back from there, and Kerry wanted to talk with Bush. "The offer has fallen on deaf ears at the White House. Kerry spokesman David Wade said yesterday, 'We've offered to have Senator Kerry meet with President Bush to discuss his trip to Iraq, if...
  • Defeated Kerry sits in cold

    US Democratic Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, who had hoped to replace George W. Bush as president yesterday, instead sat in the cold and clapped as the Republican began a second four-year term. Iowa Democratic Senator Tom Harkin patted Senator Kerry on the back shortly before the inauguration Senator Kerry had hoped would be his. As Mr Bush delivered his inaugural address, Senator Kerry, about 10m away on the steps of the US Capitol, joined other lawmakers and the crowd in repeated applause. Senator Kerry looked relaxed, at times wistful. He frequently smiled, able to hide any disappointment over what...

    <p>While I disagree with you on just about every domestic issue a liberal could dream up, I strongly agree with your assertion that "Bush Must Win" if we are to continue to send the bin Ladens of this world crawling into their caves and spider-holes in the ground. Your comparison of the George Bush Doctrine to the Monroe and Truman Doctrines is fitting indeed. Thank you also for discussing the anti-American activities of the unconvicted manslaughter-criminal and Senator-for-life Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy. That was refreshing to read coming from someone in the same political party. It is important that you know now that I am not a Republican, I am an Independent who believes political parties have stolen representative government from the people by voting party line instead of constituent line.</p>
