    NASA Astronaut Peggy Whitson set the endurance record for time in space by a U.S, astronaut today, Monday, April 24, during her current stint of living and working aboard the International Space Station (ISS) along with her multinational crew of five astronauts and cosmonauts. Furthermore Whitson received a long distance phone call of exuberant congratulations from President Donald Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump, and fellow astronaut Kate Rubins direct from the Oval Office in the White House to celebrate the momentous occasion. “This is a very special day in the glorious history of American spaceflight!” said President Trump during the...

    What? I’ve never been much of a fan, so this affects me about as much as a change in the start of the soccer season, which is to say not at all. I think Rob has a bit more appreciation for their musical stylings, so he’s free to weigh in and tell me I’m a tasteless clod if he likes. (It wouldn’t be the first time.) But didn’t Bono kinda sorta embrace W. a few years back for his work against AIDS in Africa? Even weathering some heat from his fellow leftists for daring to admit their bogeyman of the...

    Sid Miller, Texas Agriculture Commissioner, went on FOX News on Wednesday to discuss the record breaking voter turnout for Donald Trump in the Lone Star State. Sid Miller: We have a record number of people registered to vote in Texas. We’re having record turnouts, the first day, the second day of voting. And it’s not Bernie Sanders supporters coming out to support Hillary. It’s not Barack Obama supporters coming out to support Hillary. It’s a new surge of Trump voters, many who have never registered to vote. Many who have not voted in eight or ten elections so they’re not...

    Trump/Pence Campaign 2016 ^ | 10/15/2016 | Trump/Pence
    NEW YORK, NY – Today the Donald J. Trump Campaign for President announced historic totals from September’s fundraising efforts. The $100 million haul (inclusive of TMAGA/Trump Victory) came mostly from small donors and includes a monthly $2 million dollar contribution from Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump’s contribution more than covered the costs of any reimbursements to him (or his related entities) for his plane and office rent; which the law mandates to be reimbursed. He has contributed an unprecedented amount to his campaign. This brings total raised to date (inclusive of his contributions) to 360 million dollars. The Campaign and both...

    It was an apparent case of retaliation, but you’d have to see the video to believe it. “Give us a call; we’ll be there when you need our help,” joked Little Rock Arkansas cops Jason Roberts and Thomas Thompson. The two Arkansas cops who were so offended by a 79-year old legislator who championed people’s Constitutional right to record police in public that they arrested him for recording a traffic stop. Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner immediaetly dropped the charges against Walker and wrote an apology for the arrest, which was caught on dash cam. The shocking dashcam footage...

    Ultra Runner Karl Meltzer Sets Appalachian Trail Record, Fueled by Beer and Candy - NYTimes.com By LINDSAY CROUSE September 18, 2016 At a time when “endurance running” no longer means mere marathons — and even 100-mile races are attracting the masses — Karl Meltzer, a former ski-resort bartender, has proved he can suffer longer and faster than almost anyone else. When he staggered onto Springer Mountain in Georgia before dawn Sunday, Meltzer set a record for completing the Appalachian Trail. He covered the 2,190 miles over 14 states in 45 days 22 hours 38 minutes. Meltzer, 48, is a little...
  • July Gun Sales Crush Previous Record (2.2 million checks)

    08/02/2016 3:10:18 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 33 replies
    The number of gun-related background checks performed in July far exceeded those of any previous July, newly released numbers from the FBI show. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month. That represents an increase of almost 600,000 checks over the previous record set last year. It is also an increase of more than a million checks over July 2011. The July record is the latest in a string of 15 record-setting months for firearm background checks. July also saw an increase over June’s numbers as the gun industry’s seasonal lull comes...

    The biggest story of the NBA's regular season has reached its resolution. It ends with the Golden State Warriors holding a 73-9 record, a new league record for wins in a single season. The Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104 at Oracle Arena on Wednesday to end the season on a four-game winning streak that puts them one win ahead of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the new mark. If the Warriors can repeat as champions, they will certainly be remembered as one of the greatest teams in NBA history and will be considered a budding dynasty. This final win...

    Farthest Galaxy Yet Smashes Cosmic Distance Record By Calla Cofield, Space.com Staff Writer March 3, 2016 04:45pm ET MORE Please upgrade your Flash Plugin The Hubble Space Telescope just calculated the distance to the most far-out galaxy ever measured, providing scientists with a look deep into the history of the universe. The far-away galaxy, named GN-z11, existed a mere 400 million years after the Big Bang, or about 13.3 billion years ago. Because the light from such a distant galaxy must travel huge distances to reach Earth, scientists are seeing the galaxy as it looked over 13 billion years ago....

    The conservative apologists for Donald Trump, and sadly there are some, protest that using his 1999 interview with the late Tim Russert, in which Trump vividly and unabashedly lays out his New York City liberalism, isn’t fair game given the time elapsed since then. Fair enough. Being that it was sixteen years ago... - See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/01/deace-donald-trump-a-typical-new-york-city-liberal-then-and-now#sthash.wqGndSaX.dpuf

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12-29-15 | Jason Russell
    For eight years, Hillary Clinton toiled away in the United States Senate, sponsoring many landmark pieces of legislation and getting them signed into law, forever changing the country. Just kidding. Only three pieces of legislation that Clinton sponsored became law. None were of much consequence. One renamed a post office in a New York town with fewer than 2,000 people. Another renamed a portion of highway outside Buffalo after the late Tim Russert. The third established a brick house in Troy, N.Y., as a national historic site to honor a 19th century female union leader. During her Senate career, Clinton...

    A deep freeze set in across the Midwest on Sunday with low temperatures forecast in the single digits and a few below zero, turning the season's first major snow into ice that made some roads treacherous to travel. After snow on Friday and Saturday across much of the region, temperatures plunged behind the front. The National Weather Service forecast 20 degrees or lower across six states from North Dakota to Illinois. Fargo, North Dakota, could dip to 11 degrees by early Sunday. Madison, Wisconsin, could see 7 degrees and Des Moines 12. Parts of Iowa, northwest Illinois and southern Wisconsin...

    The actual number of SNL viewers will be available later in the week. But for point of comparison, the season premiere delivered 6.3 million viewers, so last night could be close to 10 million. Trump, who continues to lead the GOP primary polls, previously fueled an August debate on Fox News Channel to a record 24 million viewers, and September debate on CNN drew an also impressive 23 million viewers.

    UPDATED with additional stats: According to Nielsen Fast National ratings data, CNN’s Democratic debate averaged 15.3 million total viewers last night. That would make it the sixth-biggest nonsports cable telecast in history. In the 25-54 demographic, the faceoff among White House hopefuls averaged 4.8 million — the most ever for a Dem debate. CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield bragged on-air this morning that her network’s debate drew “a higher number than the season premiere of The Walking Dead.”

    Red State ^ | 9-25-2015 | Erick Erickson
    My ten year old told me she wanted to organize the kids in her class to support Carly Fiorina. Ms. Fiorina’s speech was the only Presidential speech at the RedState Gathering that my daughter wanted to hear. She’s a big fan. In fact, Fiorina’s 2016 Presidential campaign has been very impressive and she has been sharp. Her debate performances have been impressive. The points she has made on life and limited government have been spot on. But I still have concerns about Carly Fiorina. Conservatives who want to hold up Donald Trump’s prior positions should do the same to Carly...

    The Hill ^ | 2015 August 27 | Jesse Byrnes
    A former board member of Hewlett-Packard who voted to fire Carly Fiorina as CEO is now endorsing the businesswoman's 2016 Republican presidential campaign. "Carly did what she was brought in to do: turn the company around and make it successful again. Not only did she save the company from the dire straits it was in, she laid the foundation for HP's future growth," Tom Perkins wrote for a full-page New York Times ad. The comments, in an advertisement placed in the newspaper's business section Thursday by a pro-Fiorina super-PAC, were framed as a response to an Aug. 18 Times column...
  • Trump Turns Attack on Walker

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Sunday turned his attack on rival Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, in his soaring and often unpredictable campaign that has largely targeted frontrunners but spared essentially nobody. “His state has not performed well,” Trump, the billionaire businessman who now leads in most polls, told ABC’s “This Week.” “We need someone who’s going to make it perform well, this country perform well. … I’m the one to do it.” Like many political candidates, Trump is spending the early part of the election cycle trying to downgrade the early favorites -- in this case Republican Jeb Bush,...

    Conservative Review ^ | 8-12-2015 | Daniel Horowitz
    Carly Fiorina has been widely extolled for her solid performance in the Fox News debate featuring the second tier candidates last Thursday. Judging by her rise in the polls, her overall message clearly resonated with a number of voters. Most prominently, voters are likely tantalized by her promise to “throw every punch at Hillary” and not pull punches, as has been the case with previous GOP nominees. Indeed, it is critical for the eventual GOP nominee to have the ability to articulate a bold contrast on the key issues and pin the failures of the current policies on the Democrat...

    National Review ^ | 07/27/2015 | Kevin Hassett
    As the presidential-election season kicks off, governors from all over America are seeking the Republican nomination. Historically, voters in presidential elections have tended to favor the executive experience of governors, and it seems more likely than not that the eventual Republican nominee will be one of these gentlemen. A governor is different from other politicians in that he governs an identifiable state for an identifiable period of time, and thus can be empirically associated with an economic track record in a way that a senator or a heart surgeon cannot. Economics, however, remains an inexact science. Even if a million...
