    One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service...

    The House Intelligence Committee is expecting a potential “smoking gun” showing the Obama administration spied on the transition team of President Donald Trump and possibly Trump himself, Fox News reported. The report comes two days after committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed that he obtained information that surveillance was being used on Trump’s team. Fox reported that multiple Capitol Hill sources delivered that information to him. The sources told Fox’s James Rosen, who himself was monitored by the Obama Department of Justice in 2013, that the information leaves no doubt the Obama administration was spying on Trump during legitimate surveillance on...

    Changes are on the way at the State Department. SOS John "Lurch" Kerry-Heinz announced today that he is planning major changes at State. Due to the "workplace violence" in Benghazi that seriously depleted the staff in Libya, Slick Willy's wife slithering off with most of the senior staff, and a general fear of working for State in Muslim countries has caused Lurch to feel that he has been left in a lurch. After re-evaluating the Mid-East operations, Lurch has decided to contract out all of the State Department functions in Mid-Eastern countries to CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. Lurch is...

    According to the Times of Israel, Israel's Channel 2 has revealed that Israeli air defenses have been boosted, and approaching civilian aircraft will be asked to identify themselves far earlier. Though the flight was presumed at first to have crashed, whole or in pieces, into the ocean, passive satellite transmissions from the aircraft suggest that it made a deliberate course change and may have headed north into central Asia. Pakistan has already said that the flight never registered on its radar, but at least one expert has suggested the flight could have landed in Bangladesh, whose air defenses presumably would...

    An improvised explosive device blew out windows and ignited a small fire at the Jackson County prosecutor's office in Medford, Ore., Wednesday, but authorities said the damage could have been far worse had it ignited a large propane tank at the scene. No injuries were reported as a result of the blast, which occurred at about 4:30 a.m. Local and state police and the FBI and ATF are currently investigating. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case said there was no immediate claim of responsibility and as of yet, there are no suspects, but they are attempting to determine if...

    FNN Rush Exclusive: President Obama was intrigued about the possibility of President Hugo Chavez being embalmed and put on public display forever. Because Hugo was not embalmed quickly enough, the procedure and public display could not be accomplished. President Zero was appalled and called his closest advisers and his science adviser in for a briefing. Upon their advice, President Zero has changed his will to ensure that when he dies that he is promptly embalmed and prepared for public display. The Lincoln Memorial will be removed and sent to Springfield, Il. for display. In its place President Zero's gold and...
  • White House: 'Significant' debt deal possible (Dems propose $400-600 billion in new taxes)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House said Monday that a "significant" deal with Republicans on cutting government spending and raising the nation's debt limit is still possible, even as the administration hardened its stance on the need for increased tax revenue to be part of any agreement. President Barack Obama made his first direct foray into the deficit negotiations Monday. He met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the Oval Office for about 30 minutes Monday morning, and planned to meet with Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell in the early evening. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama's meeting with...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Congress and the White House could raise the debt limit for a few months while they seek a comprehensive, long-term budget deal, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Sunday. The Obama administration has warned it will run out of money to pay the nation's bills if Congress does not raise the $14.3 trillion debt limit by August 2 -- a prospect that could push the country back into recession and upend global financial markets. Congressional Republicans, particularly in the House of Representatives, have balked at raising the debt ceiling unless it is accompanied by significant spending...

    White House: Revenge attacks for bin Laden death 'entirely possible' By Sam Youngman - 05/13/11 12:07 PM ET The White House said Friday that the U.S. intelligence community is "in a state of high vigilance" for revenge attacks after the killing of Osama bin Laden. White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to reports that more than 80 were killed in Pakistan Friday as a response to bin Laden's death by saying that it is "entirely possible, even likely" that terrorists "might try to respond with revenge attacks of some kind." The terrorist network al Qaeda has promised revenge for...

    The Fig Tree's the Clue. The untimely figs in this verse are “Olynthos”, figs that grow through the winter, yet do not completely mature until spring; they are fragile and many fall off in the spring wind. This scripture suggests that when Satan is cast down to earth the figs (raptured saints) will be taken away by a mighty wind (the Holy Spirit)

    There's an exciting prospect for breast reconstruction for women. As CBS News Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton explained on "The Early Show" Monday, stem cells and the body's own fat are used to essentially re-grow breast tissue. "A patient's own fat and stem cells are combined in the lab," Ashton told co-anchor Erica Hill, "growth factors are added. It's then injected into a biodegradable chamber in the breast. A blood supply is attached to feed these cells, and in about six-to-twelve months, that tissue then creates the form and shape of a breast."

    Footage of Masyaf shows missile shaped items; IAEA urges Syria to let inspectors visit reactor that IAF destroyed in 2007. A compound in western Syria with buildings and hundreds of missile-shaped items has been identified as functionally related to a nuclear reactor Israel destroyed northeast of Damascus in 2007. Satellite footage of the site in Masyaf was obtained by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security and shows a compound built in a ravine and surrounded by what appears to be a line of trenches. While there are no security measures visible in the commercial satellite imagery, ISIS said...

    BERLIN (Reuters) – Climate change could lead to colder winters in northern regions, according to a study by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research on Tuesday. Vladimir Petoukhov, lead author of the study, said a shrinking of sea ice in the eastern Arctic causes some regional warming of lower air levels and may lead to anomalies in atmospheric airstreams, triggering an overall cooling of the northern continents. "These anomalies could triple the probability of cold winter extremes in Europe and northern Asia," he said. "Recent severe winters like last year's or the one of 2005/06 do not conflict with...

    At a time when the nation's fastest-growing union is starting to fall victim to its own aggression, some question whether Anna Burger -- who may be in line to replace SEIU President Andy Stern -- can deliver anything but more of the same. For nearly three decades, Anna Burger has followed Andy Stern like a shadow in her rise through the ranks of the American labor movement. She succeeded Stern as president of their local Pennsylvania shop when he left for Washington in the mid-'80s. She later tagged along to the capital, and a few years after Stern won the...

    Moderate Muslim and Arab countries face great challenges as major players in the Middle East peace process who work to prevent the next war in the region – which could break out as soon as this summer, King Abdullah of Jordan told the Chicago Tribune editorial board in an interview conducted Thursday. “There are countries in the Middle East that do not believe in the Arab peace proposal,” he said, explaining that 57 Arab and Muslim states had “basically all agreed that they want to have full diplomatic relations with Israel, but [want] in return a two-state solution, therefore a...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Prime Minister Gordon Brown raised the prospect of a global "new deal" to fix the finance industry within months, setting the stage for April's G-20 economic summit with President Barack Obama. Brown, taking a welcome break from political problems back home, claimed his prize as the first European leader to meet Obama in the Oval Office, and won a statement from the US leader that US-Britain ties were unbreakable. Obama agreed the world needed to work collectively to head off future financial crises, but did not give a specific, public endorsement of Brown's calls for a sweeping...

    WASHINGTON – Two days from the White House, President-elect Barack Obama joined a vast throng Sunday at a roaring, rollicking pre-inauguration celebration staged before marble monuments to past heroes. "Anything is possible in America," declared the man who will confront economic crisis and two wars when he takes office. "Despite the enormity of the task that lies ahead — I stand here today as hopeful as ever that the United States of America will endure — that the dream of our founders will live on in our time," the president-elect said at the conclusion of a musical extravaganza that featured...
