    As Donald Trump inched closer to the presidency Tuesday night, Democratic commentator and former Obama administration staffer Van Jones offered an emotional analysis of what a potential Trump victory would mean for many parents in America. "You tell your kids, don’t be a bully. You tell your kids, don't be a bigot. You tell your kids, do your homework and be prepared," Jones said on CNN. "Then you have this outcome, and you have people putting children to bed tonight. They're afraid of breakfast. They're afraid of 'how do I explain this to my children?'"

    The Colorado convention have been removing and replacing any delegate who will vote for Trump. The GOP continues to show their disdain for the democrat process. This fella, Larry Lindsey of Colorado, found himself confronting, head-on, into the corruption of current Presidential politics.

    I don't know if his neocon connections will help him in Rhode Island which may help with a funny turnout on primary day. His Chicago comments were not helpful in the law enforcement communities of the smaller east coast states.

    I've only recently become a Trump supporter. I was leaning toward Cruz, but couldn't go with him when he decided to collude with the GOPe, fully knowing (I have to imagine) that there wasn't a snowball's chance in Hell they would pick him in a contested convention. It's obvious that the GOP has decided to self destruct. Their disregard for conservatives and their complete disdain for the middle and working class has turned my stomach. I've turned in my membership. I'm finished for good with the Republican Party. I've decided to go Independant from this point forward, and I've gotten...

Overturf to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years in connection with the death by starvation of her three-month-old son. Overturf, 21, pled no contest to first degree murder charges in the death of her son Jordan, whose “skin just hanging on his bones,” according to Saline County Attorney Ellen Mitchell. When Jordan died last December, he weighed less than when he was born. desiriahNicholas Corbin, the baby’s father, also pled no contest and will be sentenced later this month, KSAL’s Todd Pittenger reported.

  • Fox News Shutdown! Jay Carney Won't Call on Ed Henry, So He Walks Out of Briefing

    Talk about your government shutdown. Conservatives would have enjoyed watching liberal TV reporters sputter if President Bush had completely skipped the first row of reporters and picked only friendly reporters, even writers for conservative blog sites. But the media elites would have thrown a major tantrum about censorship -- including Jay Carney in his tenure at Time magazine. Put the shoe on the other foot, and the liberal media is pretty quiet. President Obama failed to call on TV reporters at his Wednesday press conference, even though he came to The Huffington Post for a shoe-shine question. Then Tommy Christopher...

    CARSON CITY — The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of Las Vegas killer Clayton L. Wrencher, who complained his rights were violated when he was warned not to cry or show remorse during his trial. Wrencher was admonished by District Court Judge Michelle Leavitt not to shed tears or display emotion, and he maintains that prejudiced him before the jury. The court said Wrencher did not object at trial but raised the issue later.

    Gawker ^ | September 12, 2011 | Unattributed
    We're told by a source inside the Times that the paper is preparing a story arguing that Obama no longer finds joy in the political back-and-forth, has seemed increasingly listless to associates, and is generally exhibiting the litany of signs that late-night cable commercials will tell you add up to depression. Or maybe Low T. Either way, the investigation was described to us as taking seriously the notion that Obama may be suffering from a depressive episode.

    For a president coping with a hyper-partisan Congress, a fix-resistent economy, a crack in the monument outside his living-room window, and a hurricane about to lash 60 million of his citizens, there were probably few better people for him to have dinner with last night. President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama dined at the tasty State Road restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and state first lady Diane Patrick. Joining the two first couples were White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and her daughter, Laura, as well as Washington attorney and powerbroker Vernon Jordan and his...

    Dem Rep. Louis Molepske interrupted JFC Co-chair Robin Vos to request a recess, citing sleep deprivation and the safety of the chamber. Molepske recounted some of the dangers of sleep deprivation, including slurred speech, disorientation and hallucinations, drawing laughs from members who thought he was getting a jab in on Vos. But Molepske insisted he was serious. Speaker Pro Tempore Bill Kramer rejected the request, pointing out he's been in the chair for all but five hours of the debate and unlike the others, he has to stand on his feet and "pay attention."

    ....With the help of the American trauma surgeon, Abu Zubaydah's captors nursed him back to health. He was moved at least twice, first, reportedly, to Thailand; then, he believes, to Afghanistan, probably Bagram. In a safe house in Thailand the interrogation began: "I woke up, naked, strapped to a bed, in a very white room. The room measured approximately [13 feet by 13 feet]. The room had three solid walls, with the fourth wall consisting of metal bars separating it from a larger room. I am not sure how long I remained in the bed. After some time, I think...

    Bradley Manning, who allegedly leaked hundreds of thousands of secret government documents to Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks, turns 23 in jail Friday. The Daily Beast’s Denver Nicks, in an exclusive interview with Manning’s attorney, reports on his solitary confinement, what he’s reading (from George W. Bush to Howard Zinn), and his legal strategy. The last time Bradley Manning saw the world outside of a jail, most Americans had never heard of WikiLeaks. On Friday, Manning, the man whose alleged unauthorized release of hundreds of thousands of classified documents put the website and its controversial leader, Julian Assange, on the map, turns...

Manning asked for a list...

    TMZ has learned Kal Penn -- aka Kumar from that "White Castle" movie -- was robbed at gunpoint early this morning while walking in a neighborhood in Washington D.C. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Penn claims a man carrying a gun approached him around 1:20 AM and took his wallet and other personal property. We're told Penn immediately reported the incident to authorities, who have launched an investigation into the matter. Multiple calls to Penn's rep were not returned.

    Republicans are discovering just how effective an opposition party can be in Washington. Their strategy is simply to aggressively and relentlessly oppose the liberal agenda of the president and the Democratic Congress. As a result, Barack Obama's agenda is in jeopardy, and the president is disconcerted, less popular and on the defensive

    NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. | The man accused of fatally shooting a soldier outside a recruiting center begged for FBI agents to free him from a Yemeni jail where he was "radicalized" by Islamic terrorists, his lawyer told Associated Press on Thursday. Lawyer Jim Hensley described Abdulhakim Muhammad as an impressionable youth driven to public service in an impoverished Middle Eastern country. But teachings by "hardened" terrorists in Yemen and experiences with Afghan child refugees who were missing limbs drove him to become someone his parents didn't recognize, Mr. Hensley said. "Here comes the FBI, who may be able to...
