    How did country music star Blake Shelton react to being named the sexiest man on the planet? Plenty of jokes. "Y'all must be running out of people ... Like, wow, we're down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical," he told People in the magazine's cover story for the special issueHe added, "I've been ugly my whole life, if I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it. I'm taking it." He was also quick to relish in his new title on Twitter. Despite how much he seems to be enjoying the announcement, Shelton said it took some convincing from...

    American Thinker ^ | Nov. 3, 2016 | Ronald Kolb and Steve Cunningham
    In June of 2014, the Washington Free Beacon came upon an audiotape of then first lady of Arkansas Hillary Clinton from the 1980's discussing with journalist Roy Reed a legal case she had been involved with in 1975. She had been the defense attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, who at age 41 had been accused of raping a 12 year-old girl in May of that year. On the audio, Hillary, in an affected southern drawl, could be heard laughing at several inappropriate times. "He took a lie detector test," she said. "I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which...

    Raped at age 12, a woman now is lashing out at Hillary Clinton for defending her attacker, who got off with a penalty of only a short jail term thanks to the machinations of the young lawyer in Arkansas in 1975. The victim, Kathy Shelton, now is saying she wants to speak out so that people know the truth about the Democrat candidate for president this year. Shelton’s comments about the assault she endured at the hands of a 41-year-old attacker when she was 12, in 1975, and the subsequent ordeal she was forced through because of the attacker’s lawyer,...

    Scandal: The Air Force's Space Command chief was pressured to alter testimony about the danger of a wireless project developed by a Democratic donor's company. Are lives as well as money being put at risk? Crony capitalism, which has been rampant in President Obama's push for green energy, is one thing. Rewarding donors with stimulus dollars is merely the "Chicago Way" brought to Washington, D.C. But when ideology combines with cronyism to place American lives and the nation's security at risk, it's quite another thing. At issue is a plan by Reston, Va.-based satellite broadcast communications company LightSquared to build...

    “GPS receivers were quite purposefully designed to operate in a portion of the radio frequency spectrum deliberately maintained as a “quiet neighborhood,” with neighboring frequencies primarily occupied by signals of comparable power levels, all based on widely accepted understanding of previous FCC rules and intent. The proposed LightSquared transmitters will produce received signal strengths five billion times stronger than the GPS received signal.” "Some have suggested GPS equipment can be redesigned for greater filtering to mitigate the interference, but even if this is possible, we believe it would involve substantial financial cost and likely degrade the accuracy of high performance...

Eli Lake starts off his new gig at The Daily Beast with a huge bombshell — an accusation made to members of Congress from a four-star Air Force general that claimed the White House pressured him to change his testimony to boost a big donor to the Democratic Party: ...

    When it rains, it pours. And there ain’t a big enough umbrella for all President Obama’s cronies and fixers to crowd under these days. While the Solyndra BGB (big green boondoggle) continues to blow up on Capitol Hill, the White House faces another pay-for-play backlash — this time from his own left flank. The liberal Daily Beast reports on a broadband project backed by a frequent Obama White House visitor and donor that has Pentagon officials concerned over potential military GPS interference. The Obama FCC took the lead in intervening on the donor, billionaire hedge fund manster Philip Falcone’s, behalf...

    The codes used by the president to launch a nuclear strike were mislaid for months during the Clinton administration, the former highest-ranking US officer has said. [...] Gen Shelton said the incident had taken place "around the year 2000". Under the procedures, an official was sent every month to check the codes, and that they were replaced every four months with new codes. According to Gen Shelton's book, Without Hesitation, an official had gone to check one month and been told by the aide that the codes were on the president's person but that he was in an important meeting...

    In 1997, one of Bill Clinton's Cabinet members suggested that Shelton order a US plane to fly low over Baghdad so Saddam would shoot it down and, ta da, give America instant justification for war. "I was so mad I was about to explode," recounts Shelton, thinking about the sacrificial pilot. “Why, of course we can,” he responded. "Just as soon as we get your ass qualified to fly it, I will have it flown just as low and slow as you want to go.” The memoir doesn't name the Cabinet member, but Elliott notes that the way the passage...

    Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani immigrant who police say has admitted parking an SUV bomb in New York, piled up debts and made few friends in the U.S. For most of the past decade, Pakistani immigrant Faisal Shahzad struggled to find his place in America, piling up debts and bouncing from one run-down neighborhood to another. In 2004, he and his wife, Huma Mian, plunked down savings to take out a $218,400 mortgage for a two-story house in Shelton, a gritty Bridgeport suburb. The following year, Shahzad was awarded a master's of business administration degree from the University of Bridgeport, normally...
