    Clinton rules mean they feel entitled to …well…everything. Now that Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy, even the mainstream media has started to raise questions regarding the Clinton Foundation. In the wake of reports of pay-to-play donations made to the foundation from rogue nations and Iranian sanction busters, Reuters has investigated the disclosures made by the foundation for years and found them wanting. From Jonathan Allen: Hillary Clinton's family's charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation...

    A toy grenade that Curt Schilling’s son mistakenly packed in his carry-on luggage caused a security scare at Logan Airport this morning. The former Red Sox Ace posted on his Facebook page: “Want a good one to start your day? We are at Logan getting ready to fly. Heading through security when one of my sons looks at me in panic....”DAD!”.....OMG I THINK I LEFT MY FAKE GRENADE IN MY BAG!!!” Schilling posted to his Facebook page at about 7 a.m. “3 seconds later the belt stops, every tsa person is on their walkie talkies.

    That’s my wife! Assuming that the lady in the mall was his wife, a Jordanian man slapped her, only to realise he had attacked the wrong woman. Arabic daily Al Sawsana reported that a mall in Jordan was shocked when a man barged in and charged at a woman. The astonished woman began screaming for help. The man who was passing by the mall thought he had spotted his wife shopping without his permission. Without a second glance, the man rushed in and hit the woman. The woman began screaming for help. Soon, however, there was pin-drop silence in the...

    If Wisconsin turns into the Left’s Waterloo two weeks from today, Mitt Romney’s campaign may take a fresh look at making it Barack Obama’s as well. The Wall Street Journal analyzes the impact that a defeat in the Badger State will have on Democrats and the unions, and the new talk of Wisconsin being the kind of swing state that could decide this election: From the start, some in the Democratic Party worried that a Wisconsin recall could drain needed resources, fire up the conservative base and ultimately make it more difficult for Mr. Obama to win the state. Mr....

    Minding my own business and this black hole opens up right in my living room and snapped shut again right away, leaving a few sheets of paper floating crazily around my head. By the time I'd gathered my wits (both of them!), they were reposing gently on the floor...I picked them up and, noticing their contents and the fact the seemed to be undergoing gradual existence failure, I put them on my scanner.... Unfortunately the last one didn't make it--disintegrated completely just as I was putting it on the scanner. It seemed to consist largely of sports scores...horse-racing, mostly...

It is now recognized that, with the exception of sub-Saharan African, it is confined to high-risk groups.These groups include men who have sex with other men, drug users who inject with needles, and sex workers and their clients,...

    Read TNR's accounting. It is as I predicted: honorable and, except for one small inaccuracy, it checks out. All the aspects aggressively challenged by the usual propaganda organs have been verified and corroborated. The military is now conducting its own investigation. Given the record of such formal investigations, I'm not as confident in the Pentagon as I am in TNR. Can we now expect apologies from the people who smeared and maligned the magazine and its soldier-reporter? I doubt it. The attackers are not the kind to acknowledge their own errors.

    Call it 1-800-OOPS. Seven Nassau Republican legislators, led by Minority Leader Peter Schmitt, had good intentions when they urged constituents to call a toll-free number to be notified when convicted sex offenders move into their neighborhoods. "Nassau County Legislator Peter J. Schmitt wants you to be protected from sexual predators," said the headline on the postcard his office mailed in cooperation with Parents for Megan's Law, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of sex abuse. Unfortunately, the 1-800 number printed on the card prompts callers to another 800-number -- a sex chat line. "Hey there, sexy guy,"...

    Checkpoint security screeners at Denver International Airport last month failed to find items simulating dangerous weapons and explosive materials carried on by undercover agents, sources told 9News. The Transportation Security Administration screeners failed most of the covert tests because of human error, the sources said. Alarms went off on the machines, but screeners did not follow TSA standard operating procedures, such as hand-searching luggage, wanding or patting down the undercover agents. "The good news is we have our own people probing and looking and examining the system," said U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., who sits on the House homeland security...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A US Airways passenger faced charges of interfering with a flight crew Thursday after he apparently unknowingly slapped an undercover federal air marshal, said an official familiar with the case. The man, who'd been drinking liquor, threw a mid-air temper tantrum Wednesday night after attendants refused to serve him any more alcohol during his flight from Washington's Reagan National Airport to Fort Myers, Florida, the official said. The passenger then slapped a fellow passenger, who happened to be an undercover air marshal assigned to the flight, said the official.

The officer was reportedly showing someone a demonstration model of a holster for his semiautomatic gun. At some point, he put the gun down while reloading...

    The moral of the story is, it's probably not a good idea to drive with a loaded weapon tucked between your legs. Wichita police said a 25-year-old man was driving south on West Street shortly before 4 p.m. Monday when a gun went off in the car. The victim told police the gun was in his pocket. But there was no hole in the man's pants pocket, Sgt. Steve Hiser said. The bullet passed through the victim's left thigh, Hiser said. Police don't know what kind of gun it was, he said, because a front-seat passenger took the gun and...

    TWO of America’s most famous women are causing trouble for John Kerry, one with a sexually explicit outburst, the other with silence. Whoopi Goldberg, the Hollywood star, was yesterday dropped as the face of Slim-Fast, a dietary product, after an X-rated performance at a fundraiser whose fallout is making the Democrat presidential candidate squirm. Separately, many Democrats are livid at the party’s failure to give Hillary Clinton a speaking slot at its Boston convention this month. That Ms Goldberg stole the headlines from Mr Kerry with a series of lewd remarks about President Bush is only part of his problem....
