    Debbie Reynolds -- who rose to stardom in "Singin' in the Rain" and quickly became a staple among Hollywood royalty -- died Wednesday as a result of a stroke, TMZ has learned ... just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away ... this according to her son Todd. Debbie was rushed to a hospital shortly after 1 PM when someone at the Beverly Hills home of her son, Todd, called 911 to report a possible stroke. We're told Debbie and Todd were making funeral plans for Carrie, who died Tuesday of cardiac arrest. Debbie famously divorced Eddie Fisher...

    Once again we broke the news before everyone else: GotNews.com proved that #PhilandoCastile was a Crips gang banger. We also rightly pointed out that his lying, drugged up side bitch Lavish Reynolds lied about everything, including being his girlfriend, being married, and that Castile had a concealed carry permit. Reynolds was already lying 10 seconds into the video, claiming that Castile was her boyfriend. There were no references to or photos of Castile on Reynolds’ Facebook page, and vice versa, even though Reynolds was a prolific Facebook user, posting dozens of photos in just the last month. Castile listed his...
  • Boehner-Backed Candidate Out of Race to Replace Him

    Butler County Auditor Roger Reynolds' abrupt withdrawal last week from the 16-way contest to fill the vacancy created by Speaker John A. Boehner's retirement is another sign of how little conservatives think of the former speaker. Reynolds was seen as a favorite among the 14 Republicans in the race and was believed to have Boehner's backing. But that didn’t work in Reynolds' favor among some conservatives. "It is pretty clear that Boehner is behind Roger Reynolds," Lori Viars, a board member of the Conservative Republican Leadership Committee, told Cincinnati.com in October. And that, she hinted, might not be such a...

    EXCLUSIVE: At least four classified Hillary Clinton emails had their markings changed to a category that shields the content from Congress and the public, Fox News has learned, in what State Department whistleblowers believed to be an effort to hide the true extent of classified information on the former secretary of state’s server. The changes, which came to light after the first tranche of 296 Benghazi emails was released in May, was confirmed by two sources -- one congressional, the other intelligence. The four emails originally were marked classified after a review by career officials at the State Department. But...

    Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds couldn’t tell a federal magistrate judge Thursday where he planned to live as he awaits trial on misdemeanor charges of failing to file tax returns for four consecutive years. That’s because of lifetime restrictions on his residency stemming from his conviction decades ago for having sex with an underage campaign worker. After shooting down two possibilities Thursday — including a residence near a kids center in Bartlett and a Red Roof Inn in Indiana — U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez told him to return to her courtroom and try again Friday afternoon. His new defense...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds says he is in hiding in South Africa following his deportation from Zimbabwe because he believes his life is in danger. He told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that he believes he is being pursued by a secret Zimbabwean death squad because of information he has on American businessmen, especially from Chicago, who are doing business illegally with Zimbabwe.

    **SNIP** The disgraced Illinois ex-congressman denied charges he was found with nude pictures and videos of women and men having sexual intercourse on his mobile phone. The count was an alleged violation of Zimbabwe's Censorship and Entertainments Control Act, according to Gurira, and carried a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a fine. Pornography is banned in Zimbabwe. Harare magistrate Tendai Mahwe agreed with Reynolds’ lawyer that state prosecutors had not sought written authority from the prosecutor general for the pornography charge. “This makes the actions of the state null and void,” Gurira said. Earlier on Friday, Reynolds...

    Sen. Robert Menendez wooed a married newspaper publisher, taking the attractive brunette on a romantic getaway to the Caribbean, a tipster alleges. The New Jersey Dem and Cecilia Reynolds jetted to Puerto Rico, where they stayed at the isolated beach retreat of the island’s then-governor, Anibal Acevedo Vila. In a photo provided by the anonymous informant, Reynolds is sitting naked on a beach and suggestively smiling at the camera. In another set of pictures, they take turns posing against the same sunset backdrop. The happy couple, dressed in shorts, also appeared to tour a national park and pose for a...

    Tell us what you really think, Oklahoma Rep. Mike Reynolds. Reynolds is making a few enemies after bluntly stating "it's not our job to see that anyone gets an education" in an email exchange between Oklahoma lawmakers. When fellow Rep. James Lockhart emailed colleagues asking them to support a bill that would expand Oklahoma's Promise, a scholarship program for qualified low-income students, Reynolds responded, "It is not the responsibility of me, you, or any constituent in my district to pay for his or any other persons [sic] education …

    **SNIP** One in the pack running for Jackson’s vacated house seat is one who’s been there before, former congressman Mel Reynolds. “At a time when we are living in the killing fields of Chicago, our federal government seems obsessed with the Jackson,” said Reynolds. Reynolds points to stories that include Jackson’s wife Sandi who’s also resigned her elective seat as alderman. “Do they really now want to put both parents of small children in jail or is their strategy to get Sandi Jackson to flip on her husband so they can put even more pressure on that family?” said Reynolds.

    (CNN) -- Actor Burt Reynolds is in intensive care in a Florida hospital, where he went for treatment of flu symptoms, one of his representatives said Friday. Reynolds was dehydrated when he went to the hospital, and was eventually transferred to its intensive care unit, his representative Erik Kritzer told CNN. Kritzer declined to divulge what hospital the actor was in, saying, "He would like that (kept) private." "He is doing better at this time," Kritzer said late Friday afternoon of the 76-year-old actor. "We expect, as soon as he gets more fluids, he will be back in a regular...

    Ah, Chicago and its politics. There's no other American city quite like it. Fortunately. It's a beautiful city from the outside. And a political cesspool inside, a seeping source of conniving and corruption that spawned Barack Obama and his top aide Valerie Jarrett and is now ruled by the president's ex-chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. Another amazing chapter in the Windy City's sordid politics began unfolding Wednesday, one whose lineage can actually be traced back to the very beginnings of Obama's political career, which now has an extended expiry date of Jan. 20, 2017. Today, Obama lunches with the man...

    Burt Reynolds, once one of Hollywood's highest-paid stars, faces eviction from his Florida home after failing to pay the mortgage. The 75-year-old actor is being taken to court after claims he has failed to make a payment on his waterfront mansion for almost a year. Lawyers for Merrill Lynch have asked a judge to sell the Ł1.4million house, set in 4.5 acres, so they can recover the Ł700,000 the bank says it is owed In a sign of the scale of his financial hardship, property records show Reynolds has a second Ł455,000 mortgage on the property with another bank. He...

    The creators of the play Book of Mormon have created the Amos and Andy for the South Park set. We may laugh, but our grandchildren will shudder as decent folk do at “wits” of the last century whose favorite dance was to “jump Jim Crow.” The parts of the Book of Mormon I have seen are as innovative as a Newsies revival and as funny as the cruel, tasteless jokes told by an inebriated coworker at a Christmas party. The difference is that the coworker might sober up in the morning, but the mindless mockery that also gave us South...

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I appear before you today in pursuance of a previous notice, and have made arrangements with Mr. Lincoln to divide time, and discuss with him the leading political topics that now agitate the country. Prior to 1854 this country was divided into two great political parties known as Whig and Democratic. These parties differed from each other on certain questions which were then deemed to be important to the best interests of the Republic. Whig and Democrats differed about a bank, the...

    President Obama or Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. should declare publicly whether executive privilege has been invoked in the Justice Department's refusal to release documents showing why voter-intimidation charges against the New Black Panther Party were dismissed, says the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Declaring an impasse in negotiations between the commission and the department, Commission Chairman Gerald A. Reynolds said the Justice Department has "repeatedly refused" to provide any basic information regarding the case, instead asserting "vague and generalized privileges" that do not apply. "The actual basis for the department's continued refusal to cooperate with the commission remains...

    Chapter 6In Summary: Ten Things I Learned From Reading Going Rogue This was a bad and unhelpful book. It was not bad because it was simple. Goldwater (or his ghost) used fewer pages in Conscience of a Conservative and said more. It was not bad because it was autobiographical. Though I don’t like his politics, President Obama confessed more and said it better in Dreams from My Father. If you don’t believe that this book is bad, then read (really do!) Ronald Reagan’s autobiography Where’s the Rest of Me? Ronald Reagan showed more substance in his delightful book written mostly...
