    Tomorrow the tarheels of UNC will play th Hokies of Va Tech. My son died at the age of 43 in July of this year. He was a big North Carolina fan.

Including his wife, who loved him and misses him very much. I am so thankful for her, she was a Hokie fan and he was a Tarheel fan. This was the wayi it was. Sports fans, you understand this.

    Months before her secret airport meeting with Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch went on television and promised the American people that Hillary Clinton would not receive special treatment. On March 10, Lynch appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The host asked Lynch if Clinton would be indicted for risking national security by setting up private servers to conduct government business while at the State Department. Lynch assured Colbert and his audience that her Justice Department would act "fairly" and "independently" and that anyone with a "famous name" or "political interest" would be treated...

    Hillary Clinton was interviewed by Scott Pelley and offered a new defense of her careless handling of classified material. You’ll be shocked to learn it was all someone else’s fault. In addition, she actually had the gall to point to her record as Secretary of State as proof that she takes the handling of classified information seriously. “And to the voters who wonder whether you can be trusted with the nation’s secrets, you say what?” Scott Pelley asked. “I say I have been and I have proven that over the course of my 8 years in the Senate; my four...

    Obama decided to commemorate Memorial Day (after denouncing the US military from Vietnam to Japan) by calling for "good healthcare" for veterans. President Obama called for veterans to receive better healthcare and good-paying jobs during a Memorial Day speech at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. “We have to be there not only when we need them, but when they need us,” Obama told the crowd of survivors who have lost loved ones in battle.

    How long has Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants? A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

In an update Monday on Clinton’s condition, her doctors say the blood clot did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

    Mitt Romney’s son says that his defeated dad never actually wanted the top job and he was reluctantly convinced to run for president. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to… run,” the eldest Romney son Tagg said in an interview with the Boston Globe. “If he could have found someone else to take his place… he would have been ecstatic to step aside. He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he...

That's what Tagg Romney, Mitt's oldest son, told the Boston Globe for its big post-mortem on his father's failed presidential bid published on Sunday. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life," Tagg Romney told the paper. "He had no desire to ... run. If he could have found someone else to take his place ... he would have been ecstatic to step aside.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton paid tribute Thursday to slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, calling him a "fallen hero" who understood that diplomacy requires taking risks. About two months after Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, Clinton said the State Department and Pentagon are reviewing security at high-threat diplomatic posts to determine what improvements should be made.

    Vice President Joe Biden invoked Paul Ryan's deceased father to question the Republican vice presidential candidate's values: "My dad used to have another saying, for real," Biden said. "And, by the way, I've been saying this for 30 years. And I'm glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone tell you, say, 'Look, let me tell you what's important to me, what I value.' My dad would go, 'No, no. Don't tell me what you value. Show me your...

    The convicted crack dealer authorities said mistakenly gunned down a Northeastern University coed four years ago told a federal judge in 2010 during sentencing on an unrelated drug charge that he wanted taxpayers to foot the bill for education to make him a teacher while behind bars. “I think he lives in another world,” said Nicholas Payne, whose daughter, Rebecca Payne, was in her Mission Hill apartment when she was shot to death on May 20, 2008. When Cornell Smith was sentenced in January 2010, he told a judge he hoped the government would “help me out as in grants”...

    The United States was about to announce a deal that would put a stop to North Korea's uranium enrichment program when it was announced that the country's leader, Kim Jong Il, had died, a senior U.S. official told CBS on Tuesday. The Obama administration, according to the official, was due to announce that the U.S. would make a large donation of food aid to North Korea, and in turn North Korea was to announce the suspension of its controversial uranium enrichment program.
  • Nebraska 17, Penn State 14; Crowd Chants "We love JoePa."

    The New York Times ^ | November 12th, 2011
    A last-ditch drive ends in disappointment for Penn State, which loses to Nebraska, 17-14. Not having any timeouts crippled the offense, which completed two passes short of a first down, including one with seconds left, but couldn't stop the clock. This is a different Saturday in State College. Immediately after McGloin's final pass fell incomplete, the Penn State crowd cheered the team's effort: the cheering grew to a roar as the two teams again met a midfield, such as they did right before the game. Again, as occurred several times during the game, there were chants of "We love JoePa."...

    Romney says he's 'also unemployed' By Michael O'Brien - 06/16/11 01:04 PM ET Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) risked looking as though he had a tin ear when telling out-of-work Floridians Thursday that he's also unemployed. Romney, a Republican presidential candidate and a millionaire many times over, sought to empathize with voters in Tampa facing economic hardship. "I'm also unemployed," he said, as reported by the New York Times. And Democrats pounced, calling Romney out-of-touch for his remarks. “Mitt Romney’s comments today at an event with unemployed Floridians that he’s ‘also unemployed’ is inappropriate and insensitive to the millions...

    Things are going from drag to worse for Anthony Weiner. Photos emerged Wednesday of the creepy congressman vamping in a bra and pantyhose - on the same day porn star Ginger Lee, one of his computer conquests, spilled the beans on the raunchy rep's obsession with his "package." The latest embarrassing Weiner shot was splashed on the cover of the National Enquirer and dates back to his college days at the State University of Plattsburgh... "It was never quite clear whether one of Anthony's challenges was to become a cross-dresser or if it was just some bizarre stunt he decided...

    From the times news coverage of the Tucson shooting began streaming across television screens till now, there has been a concerted effort to affix blame for the shooting on conservatives like Sarah Palin and bodies of conservatism, like the Tea Party. And while these efforts have been carried out by seeming equal numbers of Democrat officeholders and media talking heads like the always embarrassing Keith Olbermann, three people who have predominated in these efforts are Michael Moore, Jane Fonda, and Kathy Griffin: a trio I’ve personally dubbed “The Shameless Trifecta.”
