    On one level, the saga of Madame Giselle is a story about, in no particular order, allegations by two neighbors who say they were swindled in an elaborate scheme to sell T-shirts to the Venezuelan army, a cash-stuffed envelope slipped under a doorway, a legendary bygone scandal involving the Colombian military and a glamorous woman known as “The Blonde,” an ongoing multimillion-dollar Colombian fraud case, and a supposed helicopter ride into Syria. But on another level, as illustrated in interviews and in hundreds of text messages obtained by The Washington Post, it’s a story about friendship and trust, about what...

  • New Bill O'Reilly Accuser Says He Called Her "Hot Chocolate" and Leered

    Another woman is telling Fox News her story of harassment at the hands of O'Reilly, according to attorney Lisa Bloom. Bill O'Reilly used to leer at an African-American Fox News clerical worker and called her "hot chocolate," according to attorney Lisa Bloom, who helped the woman report the harassment to the network's hotline. The woman worked for a different broadcaster in 2008 while this was going on, but The O'Reilly Factor host's office was near her desk. "He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar," Bloom tells The Hollywood Reporter....
  • Obama’s Hawaiian Christmas vacations cost taxpayers $35 million over 8 years

    For the last time, taxpayers are paying for a Hawaiian Christmas vacation for President Obama and his family, an annual luxury getaway that has cost the Treasury easily more than $35 million over eight years. Golfing on oceanside courses, dining at high-end restaurants and frolicking on stunning white-sand beaches where security guards keep other tourists at bay, the president and his family are in the midst of a 17-day holiday that requires dozens of Secret Service agents, military personnel and other government employees to guarantee their safety and ease of travel around Oahu. The Obamas are once again renting a...

    Two charities that prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King has claimed to have created and has touted publicly were never officially formed, The Daily Caller has learned. King, who was recently hired as a justice writer at the New York Daily News, began raising money for a group called Justice That’s All last September, just after Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Mo. police officer. He also said in interviews in 2013 that a media company he co-founded, Upfront Media Group, would send a portion of its proceeds to an affiliated nonprofit, the Upfront Foundation. But an...

    George P. Bush took office as state land commissioner in a low-key ceremony at the Texas Capitol on Friday. - I don't yet know a whole lot about George P. Bush, but he seems (far) more electable than his father. Jeb should stand aside, and let his son take the lead.

    It appears that the folks in Occupy Wall Street would have done themselves a favor if they had followed Newsbusters. Why? Because over three years ago your humble correspondent wrote about how Justin Wedes, who was one of the OWS leaders, attempted to cheat taxpayers by forging documents in order to fraudulently obtain a government grant. Now the OWS people have learned the hard way that Wedes can't be trusted. As reported by the New York Times, OWS activists are now suing Wedes for taking over their Twitter account. In addition they are asking for $500,000 in damages. So now...

    Carl Gibson, co-founder of U.S. Uncut, is joining with other Occupy Wall Street organizers to launch a new populist political party. While more details (including the name of the party and the identities of other key organizers) will be available when the group launches on March 20, the party will be explicitly anti-capitalist. Says Gibson: "A new party that actively opposes capitalism and unites people around the basic ideas of meeting human needs would be widely respected and immediately acknowledged. This new party could stand apart from the two corporate-owned parties by refusing to take campaign donations from corporations, banks...

    You can tell the conservatives liberals fear most because they start being automatically referred to as "discredited." Ask Sen. Ted Cruz. But no one is called "discredited" by liberals more often than the inestimable economist John Lott, author of the groundbreaking book More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws. Lott's economic analysis of the effect of concealed-carry laws on violent crime is the most thoroughly vetted study in the history of economics, perhaps in the history of the world. Some nut Dutch professor produces dozens of gag studies purportedly finding that thinking about red meat makes people...

Who would have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1 Tim 2:3-6 Rom 3:28-30 Is he the God of the Jews only? Is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes of the...

    Wash Examiner ^ | 11-1-09 | Tim Carney
    New York Times columnist Joe Nocera has a scathing attack on Jon Corzine, whose financial firm just declared bankruptcy. "The idea that Corzine, who single-handedly destroyed MF Global Holdings, was in a position to command so much as a penny in severance is horrifying...." What caught my eye was one word that never appeared in Nocera's column. I'll give you a hint: it begins with (D). Also left out of Nocera's piece, Jon Corzine this election has given the maximum to the Democratic National Committee (and thus to Obama's reelection). But it's not Nocera that's omitting these relevant facts --...

    National Legal & Policy Center ^ | August 31, 2011 | Carl Horowitz
    Al Sharpton's newest role - full-time anchorman - is now a reality. The New York City-based black activist, preacher and former presidential candidate launched his MSNBC-TV talk show, "PoliticsNation," on Monday, August 29, six days after the network tapped him for the 6-7 P.M. (EST) weeknight slot vacated in July by Cenk Uygur. The announcement wasn't unexpected. Sharpton frequently had substituted for Uygur. And MSNBC's parent company, Comcast Corp., for years has been a generous donor to Sharpton's nonprofit group, National Action Network (NAN). The elevation of Sharpton, with a long history of demagoguery and financial chicanery, to top-tier...

    Cable network gives Obama ally his own show for election yearMSNBC is looking to please its friends at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The No. 3 cable-news network announced Tuesday that it would give rabble-rouser Al Sharpton the 6 p.m. show, “PoliticsNation.” That time slot opened in July when former host Cenk Uygur stormed out over being told by MSNBC President Phil Griffin that “people in Washington” were concerned with his tone. As Mr. Uygur told CNN’s Howard Kurtz, “They’re concerned that we’re too aggressive against Democrats.” Mr. Griffin doesn’t have to worry about receiving complaints regarding a known Obama administration ally....

    Democrats plan "pain" for Republicans who seek to slow or block passage of healthcare legislation, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Wednesday night. Brown said that if Republicans try to offer amendments and use parliamentary maneuvers to grind out the legislative process, Democrats would retaliate with all-night sessions and other methods of fighting back. "I think they're going to try to do amendments, as many as they can get away with," Brown said Wednesday evening during an appearance on MSNBC. "I think we keep them here all night -- tonight, the next night, the next night, the next night." "If they're...

    An amateur archaeologist says he's discovered the world's oldest pyramids in the Balkans. But many experts remain dubious Sam Osmanagich kneels down next to a low wall, part of a 6-by-10-foot rectangle of fieldstone with an earthen floor. If I'd come upon it in a farmer's backyard here on the edge of Visoko—in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 15 miles northwest of Sarajevo—I would have assumed it to be the foundation of a shed or cottage abandoned by some 19th-century peasant. Osmanagich, a blond, 49-year-old Bosnian who has lived for 16 years in Houston, Texas, has a more colorful explanation. "Maybe it's...

    WASHINGTON, Sept 30 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday his administration was "deeply committed" to passing a new energy law that would set caps on greenhouse gas emissions, welcoming a new Senate proposal on the issue. "With the draft legislation they are announcing today, we are one step closer to putting America in control of our energy future and making America more energy independent," Obama said in a statement, referring to a bill introduced by Senators John Kerry and Barbara Boxer. "My Administration is deeply committed to passing a bill that creates new American jobs and the...

    He is back from the dead, literally. The former lover of Olivia Newton John, Patrick McDermott, is said to be alive and keeping well. McDermott had disappeared from the public eye abruptly, way back in 2005 and was assumed to be dead. Over the year, private investigators have been trying to sniff out his trail and it seems now they have achieved the feat. Patrick had gone missing after he had left for a fishing trip off the coast of California. His wallet, keys and boat were left behind but there was no trace of him. Though, at that moment...
