    A dog was found buried alive in a dumpster last week outside a business in suburban Atlanta. Emily Goldstein told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that her neighbor found the beagle while taking out the trash at work. The neighbor and a few coworkers rummaged through the garbage to rescue the dog after he heard a whining sound coming from the dumpster, the paper reported. Goldstein told the paper she believes the beagle, which had no collar or form of identification, is between 1 and 2 years old. She and her neighbor put an online advertisement in an effort to locate the...
  • Alert--New Sickening Scam

    10/29/2017 2:09:01 PM PDT · by cvolkay · 47 replies
    Had to right this. And no, I didn't make a mistake. Here in fragrant Los Angeles there is a new scam sweeping the streets. It's all the rage man! What the scumbags do is get a picture of a little baby, post it on a piece of cardboard, and write on it that little FuFu doesn't have any money for a funeral. They also write rest in peace and all of that. Then said scumbags, there are usually about 3 or 4, walk thru the L.A. traffic that is stopped at the light and beg for funeral money for little...

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. – Sara Carter at Circa News, one of the handful of real working journalists still active in the nation’s capital, reports that former Obama National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes has been added to the House Intelligence Committee’s growing list of suspects in the illegal unmasking investigation. Rhodes joins the mugshot lineup that already includes Obama-era luminaries like Samantha Power, John Brennan and Susan Rice. You may remember Rhodes, who is most famous for openly admitting to an interviewer that the Obama Administration and fake news media regularly coordinated narratives and messages. My God, dude,...

    WASHINGTON - Exxon Mobil Corp. and other large oil companies are backing a carbon tax proposal put forward earlier this year by a group of former Republican leaders including James A. Baker III, the former secretary of state and a Houston attorney. The Climate Leadership Coalition, a group that includes Baker, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and former Secretary of State George Shultz, announced a list of "founding members" Tuesday that includes Exxon Mobil, BP, Shell, Total, General Motors and Johnson & Johnson. "We support @TheCLCouncil as a founding member and are working to support its policy development process," Exxon...

    Tyler DurdenDecember 28, 2016 Just when you thought it was safe to turn Twitter down from '11', president-elect Donald Trump unleashes a triple whammy tweet-storm against the Obama administration, "shocking" the mainstream media with his frankness. First, he took direct aim at Obama, assuing the outgoing president of hobbling the transition to the Republican’s administration by unspecified "inflammatory" statements and "roadblocks," as tensions between the two men spilled into the open less than a month before Inauguration Day. Then unloaded a double-tweet aimed at the treatment of Israel. As a reminder, last week, Obama ordered Samantha Power to abstain from...
  • NY lawmakers: Trump should pay for his own security

    Several Democratic members of the New York congressional delegation think President-elect Donald Trump should pay for his own security costs if his family chooses to maintain two residences while he's in the White House. In a letter Monday to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, six Democrats representing various New York City boroughs said Trump should pick up the tab for the security costs of living in Washington and Manhattan. Also Monday, de Blasio said he’s asking the Obama administration to reimburse New York $35 million for Trump’s security costs through Inauguration Day...

    Claiming optimism will be hard to come by for African Americans, former Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar asserts America can’t unify under Donald Trump as president because the “home of the free” will now embrace “the leadership of a racist.” Moreover, Jabbar worries not just for blacks but for “women, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, the LGBT community and others who now must walk through the streets of their country for the next four years in shame and fear.” Jabbar writes in the Washington Post, “Trump represents the last wisp of the rich white plantation owner holding on to the glories...

    As Gawker's J.K Trotter writes on the site's main page - Gawker to end operations next week... After nearly fourteen years of operation, will be shutting down next week.  The decision to close Gawker comes days after Univision successfully bid $135 million for Gawker Media’s six other websites, and four months after the Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel revealed his clandestine legal campaign against the company. Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other...

    They've been bitter rivals, allies and colleagues. When they take the stage at their first joint campaign appearance on Tuesday, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will show off a new phase in their storied relationship: co-dependents. Clinton's chances of winning the White House hinge on rallying Obama's coalition to her cause. Obama's legacy depends on her success. Eight years after they spent millions tearing each other down in pursuit of the White House, they will now spend countless words and four months selling each other to the public. The foe-to-friend story will be at the center of the Obama-Clinton...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In one of the presidential campaign year’s more grisly spectacles, protesters at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades. Police responded by firing pepper spray and smoke grenades into the crowd outside the Albuquerque Convention Center.

    President Obama, who would open the floodgates to hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees if he could, praised Germany’s Angela Merkel this week for being on the “right side of history” in regards to accepting immigrants. At a speech in Hannover on Monday, the president was effusive in his admiration. “She is giving voice to the kinds of principles that bring people together rather than divide them,” Obama said, taking a not-so-subtle shot at conservative Europeans who are warning of an Islamic invasion. Because Obama has faced strong opposition to an influx of Syrians into the U.S., the German press...

    This is not the best way to end a Republican state party convention. Just moments after Colorado Republican Party Chairman Steve House announced the results of a day-long convention that awarded Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) 34 delegates to the Republican National Convention, the party's official Twitter account sent out a message suggesting party leaders were pleased with the results."We did it. #NeverTrump" the tweet said."It's not us!" a party spokesman shouted as he ran into a room full of reporters covering the convention. The tweet was immediately deleted — but not before reporters spotted it and took screen grabs: The...

    It should be clear by now to anybody paying attention that Donald Trump long ago determined that the traditional concepts of "true" and "false" have no relevance when he decides what words to let fly from his mouth. Even for Trump, though, the last few weeks have presented a stunning parade of howlers, fibs, falsehoods and fabrications - also known as lies. The thing about Trump is that he's so blase about lying, and does it so frequently, that people tend to forget how many made-up facts they've heard from him. Sometimes, it's instructive to make a list of his...
  • Attackers Who Beat Pregnant Teen and Burnt Her Stillborn Baby on Their Grill Not Charged With Murder

    In Texas, a 14-year-old girl was raped by a member of her own family and then beaten to induce abortion after he realized she was pregnant. The beating lasted six grueling hours and the teen told police that she was a virgin when she was assaulted. Additionally, reports reveal that the young girl was eight months pregnant when she was attacked. Now Dallas News reports that the four relatives involved in the induced abortion, Cedric Jones, Sharon Lee Jones, Lonnell McDonald, and Cecila McDonald have been charged with engaging in organized crime. Prior to the beating, Sharon tried to induce...
  • Did EPA Collude With Eco-Activists To Push A Federal Water Takeover?

    The EPA is on the verge of finalizing a new “Waters of the United States” regulation that would greatly expand the agency’s control over U.S. waters, and may even give the EPA the power to regulate ponds, ditches and puddles. Republican lawmakers, however, are pushing back against the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, warning the agency may have inappropriately lobbied and worked with environmental campaign activists to inflate the support behind the agency’s water takeover. “Given the magnitude and controversy surrounding the EPA’s rulemaking agenda, it is very troubling that EPA has engaged in a propaganda campaign to...

    Though there's a strong case for us to help with the Ebola crisis, the worst thing Westerners could do to Africa would be to send more foreign aid. Foreign aid provides the financial resources that enable Africa's grossly corrupt and incompetent regimes to buy military equipment, pay off cronies and continue to oppress their people. It also provides resources for the leaders to live lavishly and set up "retirement" accounts in foreign banks.

  • Lindsey Graham: White House officials ‘scumbags’

    Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday again went after the Obama administration on Benghazi, calling White House officials “scumbags” that “lied about” the September 2012 attacks. “Our Democratic friends, for the most part, have been in the tank over Benghazi. They think it’s to get me reelected,” the South Carolina Republican said on The Mike Gallagher Show on Thursday morning. “Some guy said this about me yesterday on the left: The only reason I cared about this was because I have six tea party opponents. Well, if that’s true, I’m the biggest scumbag in America. I don’t think that’s true. I...

    Appointments: America is a country of 320 million people, most of them holding to traditional values. Yet President Obama keeps mining the fringes for his hires. Does he have any friends who aren't crackpots? Seriously. The president keeps saying he champions the middle class and its values. But his choices of people to help him run the country are the most extreme in U.S. history, and his second-term nominations are more radical than the first.
