    An Army veteran was thrown behind bars Tuesday for allegedly tying her PTSD therapy dog to a tree and shooting him five times at close range — killing the poor pup for no apparent reason while a soldier filmed it. ... Court documents obtained by the Fayetteville Observer describe how she teamed up with her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, 25, for the seemingly random killing earlier this month. The couple allegedly led the white and gray pit bull to a wooded area before tying him to a tree and taking his life. ... ultimately was shot five times with a rifle...
  • Jimmy Fallon lost all credibility with Donald Trump interview (spittle alert)

    LOS ANGELES ( - If Jimmy Fallon had any credibility left as a thinking comedian with a point-of-view, he lost the last shred of it Thursday night. Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump appeared on "The Tonight Show" for a few minutes to talk up his campaign, in the midst of one of the mendacious and evasive 24-hour periods of his political career to date. Yesterday, Trump ended a slimy two-day news cycle by finally admitting that President Barack Obama was born in the United States -- but in the process, re-stoked the controversy, waffled on the topic, and manipulated media...
  • Possibly Rabid Animal Bites Walmart Shoppers In Rhode Island

    07/06/2016 9:27:41 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 22 replies
    At least two people were reportedly bitten by a small black mammal that might have been a ferret, mink or weasel, according to authorities. Those two people have not yet come forward to seek medical attention. The animal was not tested, and the concern is that it might have been rabid. Rabies is fatal in humans and animals once symptoms appear, according to the health officials.
  • Human Flesh-Craving Squirrels Are Attacking MTA Workers

    05/30/2015 7:30:43 PM PDT · by Jack Hydrazine · 88 replies ^ | 29MAY2015 | Staff Writer
    Earlier this month, a squirrel in the Bronx bit an MTA worker's finger, sending her to the hospital. Now, it appears squirrels have developed a taste for salty, delectable people flesh—a second MTA worker has been attacked by a squirrel, this time in the train car of a Coney Island-bound Q train. It's unclear whether the same squirrel was coming back for seconds, or if the city's squirrel population has teamed up with the coyotes to rid the city of all non-littering humans. This week's squirrel-sourced aggression occurred at around 9:20 a.m. on Thursday, near the Cortelyou Road Q station....
  • Why Are Nearly Half the Voters Still Slobbering Over Obama?

    I don’t get it. According to Rasmussen, 47 percent of likely voters approve of the job President Obama is doing. They called Ronald Reagan the Teflon president but the title now belongs to Barack Obama. Nothing sticks to him. Not Fast and Furious, not the trouble associated with ObamaCare, not Benghazi, not the IRS scandal, not the deal for Bergdahl, I’m betting not the border crisis and not anything else, including his less than forceful response to Mr. Putin for Russia’s role in the Malaysian plane disaster.

    The Daily Caller ^ | 4/24/13 | Jeff Poor
    Over the past four months, former Florida Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough has used his “Morning Joe” program on MSNBC as a platform to be an outspoken critic of the National Rifle Association and anyone else standing in the way of what he calls “common sense” gun control legislation. On more than one occasion over the past month, Scarborough has accused NRA-loyal Republicans of putting the interests of “rapists” ahead of other Americans. “I can’t believe those Republicans are going to allow the entire Republican Party to be the party that basically put rapists’ rights over parents’ rights to keep their...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/04/2012 | Jeff Lipkes
    I told my apolitical daughter I'd interviewed Michele Bachman the day before and asked if she knew who Bachmann is. My daughter thought for a second and said, "Yeah, that crazy lady." With the exception of Sarah Palin, no one has been demonized by the media as much as the congresswoman from Minnesota. The notorious Newsweek cover picture, headlined "The Queen of Rage," epitomized scores of hit pieces by the boys and girls of the MSM. But when open-minded writers actually spoke with her, it was a different story. According to Bachmann, reporters for three major publications -- she wouldn't...

    The Virus that Inspired the Whole Zombie Genre Zombies have come to dominate pop culture — and the explanations for their origins range from dark magic to strange satellites. But the concept of zombies has been around for thousands of years — and it looks like the idea originally came from the world of epidemiology, not the world of legends. Biting, fear of light, speechlessness, and the intense aggression that most zombie movies display all come from a single source; rabies. Take a look at the original "rage virus." While some zombie movies go for the uncanny — emphasizing the...

    Running into a rabid bear can pretty much ruin your morning, according to two men who survived to tell the tale of Virginia's first-ever reported rabid bear, an encounter that occurred in the neighborhood of the hiker-heavy Appalachian Trail and the family-friendly Skyline Drive. It started out a pretty typical day for Bobby Bryant, the farm manager at Royal Orchard, the 2,800-acre estate on Afton Mountain that used to provide Albemarle Pippins to Queen Victoria and is owned by the Scott family of Scott Stadium and Scott & Stringfellow brokerage-firm fame. Bryant, a 56-year-old Afton native who's worked on the...

  • Kids seen with rabid skunk, prompting reminder

    SIERRA VISTA — The Army heath center on Fort Huachuca is looking to remind those with children to ensure they avoid unfamiliar or stray animals, wild or otherwise, after two young children were seen playing with a skunk that was later determined to be rabid last week. The Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center release advocating caution does not specify if either of the children, young boys between the ages of 6 and 9, were infected. Rabies spreads through the bite and saliva of infected animals, and can also be spread if there is contact with the animal’s saliva to...

  • Hitler / Obama Comparisons: Is Barack Obama Like Adolf Hitler or The Nazis?

    Is Barack Obama like the Nazis or Adolf Hitler? Does even asking the question make you a right-wing nut or a partisan hack? Is it distasteful to mention Hitler or the Nazis to make a point? Let's take a sober look at the answers to these questions below: Godwin's Law Adolf Hitler seems to appear frequently in political debates. Reference to Hitler or Nazism is so commonplace that in 1990, U.S. attorney and author Mike Godwin coined an adage that has become well known on Internet discussion forums as Godwin's Law: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of...

    A West Columbia woman is undergoing several weeks of preventive medical treatment after handling a bat that tested positive Wednesday for rabies. She took the live bat out of her dog’s mouth Saturday with her bare hands, thinking it was a baby bird, said Department of Health and Environmental Control spokeswoman Clair Boatwright. It’s unclear whether the bat bit the woman, but she is receiving shots, just in case. DHEC would not release her name, citing privacy laws. It was the fourth confirmed rabid animal in Lexington County this year, according to DHEC. The others were raccoons.

    HAGERSTOWN - A rabid black bear trying to rip out a window air conditioner lost its tug-of-war with a terrified housewife when her husband blasted the beast with a shotgun, the woman and a state wildlife official said today. The bear rushed the house after Charlotte Stanton yelled out her screen door to try to scare it away from a goat pen. Stanton, 39, of rural Grantsville in Garrett County, said she was losing her tussle with the 134-pound sow when Michael Stanton pulled the trigger. "I finally yelled at my husband, because I couldn't hold on to that air...
