  • White House Ignored Request to Illuminate White House in Blue

    Friday, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (F.L.E.O.A.) Foundation announced its request that President Obama honor the ultimate sacrifice of our fallen Dallas police heroes by illuminating the White House in blue. It did not happen. FLEOA Foundation President Jon Adler issued the following statement: "While we appreciate the President's proclamation to have our flag flown at half-mast in honor of our fallen Dallas police heroes, I respectfully request that he demonstrate his full respect for their ultimate sacrifice by illuminating the White House in blue. Actions speak louder than scripted words, and the honorable act of displaying law enforcement's...

    On Monday, Rick Scott said he wasn’t ready to endorse in the Florida Presidential Primary election on March 15, but there are those who believe he might be leaning towards Donald Trump. That speculation was sparked last month, when Scott penned an op-ed in USA Today, a column in which he wrote very favorably about the New York City business mogul. I know Donald Trump personally, and while I currently have no plans to endorse a candidate before Florida’s March presidential primary, there is no doubt that Donald is a man who speaks and tweets his mind freely. But I...

    Marco Rubio says that if there is a terrorist attack in America, it will be because of people who voted against NSA surveillance, and he has previously criticized Ted Cruz for voting against it.  So he seems to be saying that future terrorist attacks will be on Ted Cruz's head.  Additionally, one of his super-PACs is running an ad saying that Cruz voted to weaken our ability to fight terrorists. What exactly did Cruz vote for?  Cruz voted for a bill that stops the NSA from collecting all phone records from all Americans.  There is no reason for the government...

    Jeremy Corbyn tonight claimed his refusal to sing the national anthem at a memorial service to remember the heroes of the Battle of Britain was 'respectful'. The new Labour leader, a committed pacifist and republican, stood silently as the congregation at St Paul's Cathedral sang God Save the Queen on the aerial conflict's 75th anniversary. Mr Corbyn, who was dressed in non-matching jacket and trousers and had failed to properly button his shirt, was branded a 'disgrace' by critics. The 66-year-old socialist tonight defended his actions. A spokesman said Mr Corbyn had attended the service 'to show respect for those...

    Last week, we were told there were 40,000 Yazidis on Sinjar Mountain facing starvation if they remained there, and slaughter by ISIS if they came down. But a team of Marines and Special Forces that helicoptered in has reported back that, with a corridor off the mountain opened up by U.S. air strikes, the humanitarian crisis is over. The few thousand who remain can be airdropped food and water. The rest can be brought out. The emergency over, President Obama should think long and hard about launching a new air war in Iraq or Syria. For Iraq War III holds...

    U.S. air strikes since Friday have opened a corridor through which tens of thousands of Yazidis, trapped and starving on a mountain in Iraq, have escaped to safety in Kurdistan. The Kurds, whose peshmerga fighters were sent reeling by the Islamic State last week, bolstered now by the arrival of U.S. air power, recaptured two towns. But the peshmerga have apparently lost the strategically important town of Jalawla, 20 miles from Iran, the furthest east that ISIS forces have penetrated. Last week's gains by the Islamic State caused Republican hawks to flock to the Sunday talk shows. "ISIS is...

    At first, it seemed like just another example of Harry Reid being Harry Reid. The Senate majority leader, whose unscripted attacks can veer into bellicosity and take liberties with facts, spoke on the Senate floor last October and appeared to blame billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch for the government shutdown. “By shutting down the government,” Reid said, “we’re satisfying the Koch brothers and Ed Meese, but millions of people in America are suffering.” In January, he went further, accusing the Kochs of “actually trying to buy the country.” His staff affectionately refers to such ad libs as Reid “getting...

    Original Title:Hank Aaron Says Republicans are Like the KKK but with ‘Neckties and Starched Shirts’ Instead of Hoods Hank Aaron is a baseball icon. Forty years ago he broke Babe Ruth's all-time homerun record of 714. He ended his career with a total of 755. Barry Bonds surpassed Aaron's record with a total of 762. Since there are claims that Bonds was "juiced," the record is viewed as suspect. When Aaron was getting close to Ruth's record, the racists came out similar to the way they did when Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color barrier in 1945. They wrote nasty...

An affidavit filed in federal court in San Francisco by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua said there was probable cause to believe that Yee had conducted various crimes, such as engaging in a conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally import firearms. Yet Yee, a prominent figure in California's Democratic legislative majority, had crusaded against guns and violent video games for years. The criminal complaint revealed Wednesday stated that Yee sought donations in return for connecting...

    Just as his alleged victim, the 13-year-old daughter of his ex-girlfriend, was sworn in to testify, former New Orleans police officer Christopher Buckley pleaded guilty this morning to raping the girl. Buckley, 39, was arrested in October 2008 after the girl told her story to her mother, also an officer with the NOPD. The Times-Picayune is not naming the woman because of her relationship with the victim. The victim, now 15, had been sworn in and was preparing to take the witness stand when Buckley decided to take a plea. In all, he pleaded guilty to seven counts of forcible...

    The Facebook message was brief and chilling - ‘Bout 2 kill ma kid’. It was posted by 24-year-old Australian Ramazan ‘Ramzy’ Acar before he plunged a huge Ninja-style knife into the body of his two-year-old daughter Yazmina. As the girl lay dying, Acar posted another message, directed at the child’s mother, Rachelle D’Argent: ‘It’s ova - I did it.' Then he posted another vengeful Facebook message to Miss D’Argent, from whom he was separated, reading: ‘Pay back, u slut.’ Sickening details of the murder of Yazmina were revealed in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today as Acar - wearing an oversize...

    Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with Newsweek recently for one of the most extensive interviews since his January exit from office. Schwarzenegger addresses everything from criticisms of one of his final acts as the state's chief executive to his own body image in his post-bodybuilding days, saying the effect of aging on his 63-year-old physique makes him "feel sh--y when I look at myself in the mirror." Below are some excerpts from the more than 2,500-word piece. Read the full article at this link. On controversy surrounding his 11th hour decision to reduce the prison sentence for the son...

    President Obama is opting not to visit the tornado-ravaged areas of the South, choosing instead to embark today on a three day tour out West where he will try to boost his political standing by talking up his approach to the deficit and raise millions for himself and fellow Democrats. The tornadoes, part of a storm that rampaged though six states Saturday, resulted in one of the worst disasters of any kind in the United States since the Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Scores were left injured or homeless while 45 people were killed – about four times as many as...

    LONDON — The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange suggested in comments published Tuesday that British journalists, including the editor of The Guardian newspaper, were engaged in a “Jewish” conspiracy to smear his organization. His remarks appeared in the magazine Private Eye, in an article by its editor, Ian Hislop, that outlined a rambling phone call Mr. Assange made on Feb. 16 to complain about coverage of WikiLeaks. The object of his ire was a Private Eye report last month that one of Mr. Assange’s associates in Russia, Israel Shamir, had denied the Holocaust. Mr. Assange complained that the coverage was part...

    It doesn't look like Barack Obama will need to get his original birth certificate to state officials to be on the presidential ballot in Arizona next year. On a 5-3 vote Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee defeated SB 1526 which would let Arizona impose its own requirements on what someone needs to prove before being on the ballot in the state. Three Republicans voted with the two Democrats on the panel to kill the plan offered by Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City. Virtually identical legislation was introduced in the House in the form of HB 2544. But that measure...
