  • Filmmakers Set Bait Bikes and Film Results - Incredible Street Justice Video

    03/26/2017 8:39:30 AM PDT · by Strac6 · 23 replies
    This was a dangerous thing to do, and taking the law into one's own hands is never a good thing to do, but there is some incredible street justice here. Especially good are the exploding air bags and electric dog training shock collars inserted into the seats of the bikes the perps are trying steal.

  • Schock in limbo as feds still loom

    05/18/2016 1:25:39 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 1 replies
    One year after resigning in disgrace, Aaron Schock — the high-flying GOP congressman whose penchant for drawing publicity to himself was nearly unrivaled in the House of Representatives — has largely disappeared from view. But federal prosecutors still have their sights on him. There have been a few random glimpses of the Illinois Republican since his abrupt departure from Capitol Hill: having dinner with his father in Peru last summer, and snowboarding with a friend in Aspen, Colorado, in February. Just this month, Schock was seen lugging his gym bag outside the Longworth House Office Building. Sources say he is...

    Monday in Jacksonville, FL on the eve of the Florida GOP Primary, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said the results of tomorrow's voting will "shock the country." Rubio said, "Tomorrow is the day. Tomorrow's the day when we're going to shock the country. We're going to do what needs to be done. We're going to win the 99 delegates here in Florida, and it's going to give us the momentum we need to go into Arizona and Utah and beyond. Because what's at stake is too important. All these elections are important, but what is at stake in...

    National Review, one of the country’s leading conservative magazines, will endorse Ted Cruz on Friday in a blow to Marco Rubio after its top editors and publisher decided that the Texas senator is the only candidate left who can defeat Donald Trump, POLITICO has learned. “Ted’s the only one with a plausible path to stopping Trump,” National Review editor Rich Lowry told POLITICO, “either by getting a majority himself or denying Trump a majority and finishing close behind and getting it to convention.”

    It is impossible to know exactly what is going on in North Korea, but something big has happened. The third generation Kim dynasty heir, Kim Jong-un, has been missing from public sight for a month, and may be ill, dead, or overthrown. There is much speculation, and contradictory reports are circulating, including the assertion that Pyongyang is sealed off, and no one is being permitted to enter or leave.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 4/9/14 | Washington Free Beacon Staff
    Rep. Aaron Schock (R., Ill.) told Fox News host Gretchen Carlson there is “clear evidence” embattled former IRS official Lois Lerner broke the law Wednesday on Fox News. The House Ways and Means Committee released a report today revealing evidence highly incriminating to Lerner, and will refer her to the Justice Department for prosecution. Among the more startling allegations, Schock revealed the committee found evidence she deliberately attempted to obstruct Crossroads GPS’s 501 (c)(4) approval for purely political reasons. “We have in writing her own e-mails after meeting with liberal-leaning groups like Democracy 21 and others where they specifically say,...

    Wanted to share something with everyone here....not necessarily so much schadenfreude as it is educational and entertaining to see the lights come on for an Obama supporter. Simply put, a liberal pseudo-intellectual colleague has decided to start a small business....very small. Only himself working out of his home. He apparently wants to use his skills and talents to create wares in his own home and do business over the 'net. He is the only employee.... But lo and behold, hardly a week goes by when this young man, who looked admiringly at BO and called him "a genius", now bemoans...
  • Obamacare shock: $12,600 deductible, 40 percent co-pay, zero competition

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/15/13 | Paul Bedard
    Many Americans shopping for better health insurance deals promised by the two-week-old Obamacare system are instead being slapped with rate shock, including savings-sapping deductibles and co-pays, according to multiple reports from around the country. For some able to get the problem-plagued Obamacare website to work, the so-called “deals” the system is coughing up around the country include $12,600 deductibles, co-pays of up to 40 percent, zero competition, and rate hikes of 260 percent. The huge cost increases that some Obamacare applicants are seeing are feeding the effort in Congress to change the system and delay implementation until January 2014. "This...
  • Sticker Shock: Californians suddenly discover why all the Republican shouting over #Obamacare.

    Meet Tom Waschura, Californian, father of two – oh, and right: Obama supporter. Just got a letter from his healthcare provider telling him that his private health insurance just went up by ten grand a year: “I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare. “I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income...
  • Bay Bridge shock absorbers spring leak (Retrofit parts gone bad.. what else is new?)

    SFGate.com ^ | 7/19/13 | Phillip Matier And Andrew Ross
    While broken bolts on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge are commanding everyone's attention, Caltrans has another problem on its hands - 96 seismic shock absorbers on the western span, some of which began leaking lubricant just three years after they were installed. The estimated cost of the fix - $13 million. And, like the brittle bolts on the eastern span, there are questions as to whether Caltrans ordered the right shocks - or dampers, as they are known - in the first place. The dampers are located between the bridge towers just below the roadway, and are...

    ScienceInsider ^ | 2 August 2012 | Kai Kupferschmidt
    A seemingly small mistake in a paper in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) landed a Danish physician-researcher in hot water last month after a German company threatened to sue him for potential losses that could run in the millions of dollars. The exchange prompted media consternation in Denmark over whether academic freedom was being censored, but the researcher, Anders Perner of Copenhagen University Hospital has corrected the error, which occurred in the publication of a study of a widely used drug to prevent shock, and thereby averted legal action. Still, the episode has shone a light on a...

    “Even though most Americans have become very frustrated with this economy, the reality is that the vast majority of them still have no idea just how bad our economic decline has been or how much trouble we are going to be in if we don’t make dramatic changes immediately,” writes The Economic Collapse (TEC). For those unfamiliar with this site, TEC is an economic blog that regularly compiles a comprehensive list of the most startling and unsettling facts about the U.S. economy. Why? Because Americans need to understand that U.S. economy is precariously balanced on the edge of full-blown collapse....
