    One week after a mass shooter Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Broward's top cop on Thursday revealed a stunning series of failures by the sheriff’s department. A school campus cop heard the gunfire, rushed to the building but never went inside – instead waiting outside for another four agonizing minutes as Cruz continued the slaughter.

    A Massachusetts voter was fuming after she says her polling location was shut down to accommodate a visit by Bill Clinton on Tuesday. Angela Grace posted cell phone video showing orange barrels and yellow police line tape at what she says was a New Bedford voting location “I haven’t seen one person be able to come in and be able to vote in here. Everything is blocked off. No person can park here. “They are affecting the voting at this poll. It’s ridiculous. It’s fraud and illegal,” she declared while panning the camera across the scene showing the media and...

    A new AP-GfK poll found that 77 percent of Republican voters prefer an outsider for their nominee. Seven in ten believe businessman Donald Trump has the best shot. AP-GfK reported: MOST WANT AN OUTSIDER By an overwhelming 77 percent to 22 percent margin, Republican registered voters say they prefer an outsider candidate who will change how things are done, rather than someone with experience in Washington who can get things done. Similarly, they prefer someone with private-sector leadership experience over experience holding elected office, 76 percent to 22 percent. By contrast, two-thirds of Democratic voters prefer experience in Washington over...

    Tom Tancredo, the firebrand former congressman, Harley-Davidson biker and perennial headache for Colorado’s Republican leaders, was taking fire from all sides last week in the final days of his primary campaign for governor. His rivals were slamming him on the airwaves. Moderate Republicans were warning that Mr. Tancredo’s name on the ballot could doom their chances in crucial races across this swing state. (SNIP) Last week, a radio commercial from a Massachusetts-based group attacked Mr. Tancredo as a “big-spending Republican in Washington” who frequently switched positions. The group, Colorado Campaign for Jobs and Opportunity, has ties to a consulting firm...

Tammy Cooper, who was arrested for child endangerment, insists she was watching her children from a lawn chair in her front yard. Now, Cooper is suing the La Porte Police Department, the arresting officer and the neighbor who made the call.

    Pastrami lovers came out bright and early Friday morning to line up in front of Langer’s Deli in Westlake as the restaurant celebrates its 65th anniversary by giving away free sandwiches.

    Governor Scott Walker may not have started out with the intention of making himself a national figure in the fight for fiscal sanity, but he’s not backing away from the role thrust on him by union protests and fleebagging Democrats. In today’s Washington Post, Walker accuses the unions of selective outrage, pointing out that his reforms of collective bargaining for public-employee unions still leave Wisconsin workers with more leverage than federal workers. Why haven’t unions blanketed the White House in protest signs and dictator references? Imagine the outrage if government workers did not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits....

    MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. — Opponents and supporters chanted outside the district office of Long Island Congressman Peter King, who plans hearings on radical Islam. About 200 noisy but peaceful protesters — split about evenly “for” and “against” — were watched by at least 30 police officers in Massapequa Park. Christian, Jewish and Muslim opponents of the hearings had billed their event Tuesday as an interfaith “pray-in.” They’re urging the House Committee on Homeland Security chairman not to hold controversial hearings on what he calls the “radicalization” of some American Muslims.

She, along with millions of Americans, actually sent Michelle Obama a picture of her beloved Havanese dog, Cha Cha Cha. (We're not kidding.) Here's the back and forth between Obama and Bawbwa: Obama: "Cha Cha?" Bawbwa: "It's short for Cha Cha Cha." O: "What is a Havanese?" B: "It's like a little terrier and they're non-allergenic and they're the sweetest dogs.." O: [Face suddenly changes.] "It's like a little yappy dog?"...

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer ^ | 02/22/2008 | Molly Kavanaugh
    U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich's plea to supporters to send money has paid off. In the past six weeks, Kucinich raised nearly $700,000 in his bid to hold onto his 10th Congressional District seat. That brings his total to $735,000, the most he has amassed in a congressional race, including his initial bid 12 years ago against incumbent Martin Hoke. His top rival, Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman, reported total contributions of $487,000, a little over half which was raised this year. Thursday was the deadline for congressional candidates to file pre-primary finance reports with the Federal Elections Commission. To check the...

    WASHINGTON - Barack Obama, who criticized big spending by outside groups that boosted his rivals in Iowa and New Hampshire, is getting some help of his own these days as the campaign moves on to delegate-rich Feb. 5 contests. Two related San Francisco-based groups headed by an Obama supporter are running ads and mobilizing voters in California and a handful of other Feb. 5 states, aiming to build support for Obama among black voters and young people. Vote Hope and, founded by San Francisco lawyer Steven Phillips, have reported spending about $350,000 on Obama's behalf. Of that, $245,000 was...

    The Republicans will head into a tough primary fight in Michigan this week, with all of the candidates vying for an important win before the South Carolina vote on the 22nd. The Democrats, however, will focus on Nevada, since the Michigan primary has been disqualified by the DNC for violating the party's rules by moving its primary up before February 5th. Only Hillary Clinton appears on the ballot among the main contenders, leaving Democrats the option of skipping their side of the ticket and focusing in on the Republicans. The Democrats don't want that, and have organized an effort --...

    How children lost the right to roam in four generations By DAVID DERBYSHIRE Last updated at 01:03am on 15th June 2007 When George Thomas was eight he walked everywhere. It was 1926 and his parents were unable to afford the fare for a tram, let alone the cost of a bike and he regularly walked six miles to his favourite fishing haunt without adult supervision. Fast forward to 2007 and Mr Thomas's eight-year-old great-grandson Edward enjoys none of that freedom. He is driven the few minutes to school, is taken by car to a safe place to ride...

    What Does The Decline In Hunting Mean For America's Kids? June 18, 2007 “I like to play indoors better,” a fourth grader told Richard Louv, “because that’s where the electrical outlets are.” In his bestselling 2005 book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, journalist and author Louv argues that never before has a generation of children been so separated from the natural world. The consequences, he says, can be seen in trends such as increases in obesity, stress, and psychiatric disorders among our kids. With the declining number of outdoorsmen indicated by the...
