    Philadelphia (CBS)—Riley Cooper may not have to worry about any bounty being placed on his head by Marcus Vick. Embattled by racial slurs at a Kenny Chesney concert in June, the Eagles’ wide receiver may have deeper concerns ahead with actual NFL players on the field when the season begins.
  • Fraudulent and deceptive: Late-term abortionist Riley’s Maryland Medical license permanently revoked

    BALTIMORE, May 20, 2013 (Operation Rescue) - The Maryland Board of Physicians has permanently revoked the license of abortionist Nicola I. Riley in a scathing 24-page order issued on May 6, which prohibits her from ever again applying for licensure or reinstatement of her license. “In view of the fraudulent and deceptive nature of Dr. Riley’s criminal conduct, her demonstrated lack of candor and integrity on her application to the Board and to Utah and Wyoming, and her demonstrated propensity for dishonesty and misrepresentation, Dr. Riley’s unprofessional conduct is not remediable,” stated the Board. “In light of the unprofessional manner...

    Riley Gunnoe says business is booming at his tool store in St. Albans. He says it's because of a sign outside. Gunnoe told me he didn't know what was going to happen when he put this phrase on it, "If you are for Obama's policies, please keep your dumba$$ out of this store." Gunnoe says he didn't know what was going to happen when he put the sign up. "I didn't care. But it really has doubled my business since I put it up so I'm glad I did now!" Some people in the community say it makes them question...

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson isn't surprised that the revamped Miami Heat are struggling initially, but he thinks if they don't get it together soon coach Erik Spoelstra's days could be numbered. ESPN 1000, Chicago Lakers coach Phil Jackson joined "The Waddle & Silvy Show" to discuss the possibility of Pat Riley coaching the Heat; the Lakers' chance of breaking the Bulls' 72-win mark; and the future of the Bulls and Derrick Rose. After adding LeBron James and Chris Bosh to go along with Dwyane Wade, Miami has limped to an 8-6 record. Wade has been banged up, Mike...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Bob Riley approved a new tax Friday to help rescue the state's most populous county from a severe budget crisis, a move that should put 1,000 laid-off county workers back to work. Jefferson County residents have faced long lines to conduct business in recent weeks because satellite courthouses closed and other offices cut back hours in the wake of the financial trouble. Jefferson County is home to about 640,000 people and Alabama's largest city, Birmingham. The Republican governor signed two bills into law after a quick special session. One creates an occupational tax for...

    Experts : Tanker dual buy sensible Sunday, August 09, 2009 By GEORGE TALBOT Political Editor Forget the money. Forget the politics. The U.S. Air Force could gain a major strategic advantage by splitting its contract for aerial refueling tankers, according to military experts. A proposed "dual buy" would replace the Air Force's existing fleet of KC-135 tankers with two different aircraft, giving greater flexibility to war planners and speeding the retirement of the Eisenhower-era KC-135s, analysts said. Advertisement The compromise would also end a political stalemate between rival bidders Boeing Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp., spreading jobs across a broader...

    Governor Riley says Alabama's acceptance of the stimulus funding would ultimately raise taxes on small businesses. MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Governor Bob Riley says he will not recommend a change in state law that is required for Alabama to receive $66 million in federal stimulus money. The money is aimed at expanding unemployment compensation coverage, but Governor Riley says there is a problem with the plan he's not ready to go along with. The federal stimulus law requires states to permanently change their laws to include unemployment benefits for many who don't normally qualify, namely part-time workers and those who've...

(Video at bottom of story) 'I still believe that this is a country that's an amazing place to live, and I'll tell you why,' Huckabee said to a large crowd in Brock Hall's main auditorium while about another 1,000 people listened to his speech over a speaker system in an overflow room.

    GALVESTON — A Spring couple charged with injury to a child in the death of 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyers were been indicted on charges of capital murder by a Galveston County grand jury Wednesday, said District Attorney Kirk Sistrunk. The grand jury deliberated for three minutes before handing down the indictments, Sistrunk said. Kimberly Dawn Trenor, 19, the mother of the 2-year-old girl, previously known only as Baby Grace, and Royce Clyde Zeigler II, 24, are accused of beating the child to death this summer. The little girl's body was stored in a plastic container in a shed for up...

    package of bills filed this past week before the Legislature, would give Alabama some of the toughest laws on the books in the nation against illegal immigration. This is the second crack Rep. Micky Hammon, R-Decatur has taken at putting some teeth in the laws of a state that is home to an estimated 250,000 illegal immigrants. Hammon’s immigration package made it out of committee in the waning days of the regular 2006 session of the Legislature, but too late for a vote. “It got out of committee last year, but it was so late and people dragged their feet...

    SAF, NRA File Motion To Find New Orleans Mayor And Police Superintendent In Contempt Of Court Bellevue, Washington - Frustrated by repeated failures to meet court-appointed deadlines, and a pattern of disregard by the City of New Orleans, the Second Amendment Foundation has filed a motion to hold Mayor Ray Nagin and Police Superintendent Warren Riley in contempt of federal court. A hearing on the motion is scheduled for Jan. 31 in federal district court in New Orleans. The Second Amendment Foundation is suing Nagin and Riley over the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane...

    New York City has a couple of important Pro Life leaders in the Catholic Church. One is Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life. The other is Monsignor Philip Riley of the Helpers of Gods Precious Infants. Though both are priests, they take totally different approaches to Pro-Life. Father Frank Pavone rarely visits an abortion clinic (to my knowledge) when he is in New York City. Monsignor Riley, on the other hand,tries to go every day to an abortion clinic in Brooklyn. Father Frank Pavone focuses on Television and Radio ministries to achieve results for Pro-Life as well as uses...

    In Birmingham they love the governor. And in Mobile and Huntsville, too. As Republicans coast to coast were burying their many political dead, a Republican governor once given up for dead was enjoying a landslide victory. Alabama Gov. Bob Riley was re-elected last week, beating long-popular Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley with more than 58% of the vote, including an impressive 20% of the black vote. His victory was not simply the result of Alabama being a Republican state: Democrats won the two next most prominent statewide races, those for lieutenant governor and Supreme Court chief justice. In Alabama as elsewhere,...

    Fro the first time since Reconstruction, the Republican Party will have a working majority of 18 of 35 Senate Seats thanks to 6 conservative democrats who have agreed to throw in with the Republican Senators to support Republican Governor Bob Riley. This is true hardball politics that may change the face of politics in Alabama forever. The remaining 17 Democratic Senators are mostly controlled by the Alabama Education Ass'n, the Alabama State Employees Ass'm and/or a coaltion of 8 black senators who are liberal, big government types. The Dems are squealing like pigs. You can hear them all the way...

    Most of the speculation of who will be the next President focuses on senators, who almost always lose. This article examines some of the other potential nominees who have gotten less attention. Keep in mind that most presidential nominees were not among the most-discussed candidates two years before the election. Sonny Purdue is the most popular governor of any state with more than five electoral votes, and his overall approval ratings have taken off while he takes on more and more positions which drive Democratic voters nuts: reversing his Democratic predecessor's centralization of pedagogic education, refusing to allow aliens to...

    In the first months after Hurricane Katrina, when subsiding floodwaters gave way to an eerie calm, residents returning to New Orleans were treated to a virtually crime-free landscape, a strange but welcome change in an era of over-amped violence. Police officers would go entire shifts without a hot call, spending most of their time filling out paperwork for looting complaints. National Guard troops grew bored manning checkpoints in empty neighborhoods. If there was a reminder of homegrown violence, it was a distant one, seen mostly in headlines from evacuee-swollen cities like Houston. Newly elevated Police Superintendent Warren Riley, even as...
