    Holly Mckenzie considered her family’s two pit bull dogs her “best friends,” having made memories over the past three years of walking them, playing with them, cuddling them and even sleeping in the same bed together. On Sunday though, Mckenzie said it was like a switch went off in the normally “cuddly, sweet” dogs. The Norwalk woman said one minute she was petting them and the next she was fighting for her life as they literally tried to rip her apart.

    West Virginia governor Jim Justice announced Thursday that he is switching his party registration to Republican, but ABC and NBC ignored the major news. Justice’s announcement was teased throughout the day and ultimately came true during a Trump rally in Huntington, West Virginia. “Today, I will tell you, with lots of prayers and lots of thinking, today I tell you as West Virginians, I can’t help you anymore being a Democrat governor,” Justice said. “So tomorrow, I will be changing my registration to Republican.” Not only is it incredibly rare for a sitting governor to change their party affiliation, but...

    An Arkansas woman was taken to jail for using a switch on her great-granddaughter, who she says was misbehaving. Police say the girl has visible welts on her arm. Norma Toussaint, 70, says she's not a bad person, but says she did pull a switch off her front hedges, stripped the leaves and used it to punish her 12-year-old great-granddaughter. "I went back in the house and whooped her on her arm," Toussaint said. Upset, the girl threatened to dial 911. "I asked, I said, 'You want to call the police on me?' And she said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Call...

    Actor and comedian Joe Piscopo earned nationwide fame with his celebrity impersonations, Saturday Night Live skits, and roles in Hollywood films like the remake of King Kong and Wise Guys. Less well-known, however, is Piscopo’s ardent support for the State of Israel. Now hosting his own daily radio show, Piscopo airs his views on a social and political issues – including what he sees as the trend within the Democratic Party towards abandoning Israel. Earlier this week, Piscopo sat down with Arutz Sheva to discuss the roots of his own pro-Israel views, his frustrations with the Democratic Party, and who...

    A lifelong Democrat, Ed Toth describes himself politically as an independent. The 60-year-old health-food store owner voted twice for Barack Obama, but he also voted in 1984 for Ronald Reagan. This year, fed up with both parties, the North Whitehall Township resident is all in for Donald Trump, switching his registration from Democrat to Republican so he could vote in the primary. "He's been successful," Toth said. "He says he wants to make America great again. I'm all for that." If Trump is the Republican nominee, he could benefit in Pennsylvania from a sizable contingent of independent-minded, white, working-class voters....

    Today, we requested that the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform undertake an "independent" investigation of the General Motors ignition switch recall delay, in light of newly obtained emails by lawyers suing GM. Those emails suggest that the Treasury may have timed its final sale of GM shares to precede public knowledge of the ignition switch fiasco. They also cast doubt on GM CEO Mary Barra's previous account of what she knew and when she knew it. Here is the text of a letter I sent today to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, in photo, the incoming Chairman of the...

    Tea Parties happened organically BECAUSE we have each other. Hence, terrorists, tyrants and those who intend harm to our freedom and constitution know they MUST isolate us by CONTROLLING the INTERNET and phone communication when it hits the fan. (Articles on that subject are featured in at cbPatriot.) The CB Patriot Project is the place to join patriots from around America who have already joined the project to assure we can still communicate and congregate - just as we did in 2008 when the tea parties began to rise up. Social media was not nearly as relevant when we started...

If you haven't seen it, go here here However, this is classic Democrat Party bait-and-switch. If you're old enough to remember FReeping in the Clinton years like I have, you'd remember that the Clinton Democrats will put out a bill so extreme as to generate an uproar, then withdraw the bill and admit that they overreach and introduce "more modest" legislation. Well, the more "modest" gun legislation is none other than Chucky Schumer's Universal Background...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Democratic state Rep. J. M. Lozano will switch parties and become a Republican, further padding the GOP super-majority in the Texas House. A spokesman said Monday that Lozano plans to announce his decision Thursday in Austin and in his Gulf Coast home district, which includes Kingsville. The move gives the Republicans 102 seats of the House's 150, but that will only matter if a special session is called.

    Rep. Bert Jones, a Reidsville lawmaker who ran in 2010 as an unaffiliated candidate, is now officially a Republican, according to the State Board of Elections database. "Welcome," said Jordan Shaw, a spokesman for Republican House Speaker Thom Tillis. "He's been an invaluable freshmen member of the House." Jones, a Dentist and former county commissioner, ousted incumbent Democrat Nelson Cole in 2010. As an unaffiliated candidate, he had to collect signatures to get on the ballot and would have had to follow the same procedure in 2012 if he wanted to run as an unaffiliated member again.

    JACKSON, Miss. — Longtime state Rep. Jeff Smith of Columbus switched to the Republican Party just before Wednesday's qualifying deadline for legislative races, and he said he still plans to run for the open spot of Mississippi House speaker in January. Smith has served in the House for 20 years as a conservative Democrat and unsuccessfully challenged populist Democrat Billy McCoy of Rienzi for the speakership in January 2008 — a nail-biter of a contest that McCoy won by a 62-60 vote. McCoy announced last week that he won't seek re-election to the Legislature, and his decision opened a race...

    Kill switches are changing the conduct and politics of warIN THE 1991 Gulf war Iraq’s armed forces used American-made colour photocopiers to produce their battle plans. That was a mistake. The circuitry in some of them contained concealed transmitters that revealed their position to American electronic-warfare aircraft, making bomb and missile strikes more precise. The operation, described by David Lindahl, a specialist at the Swedish Defence Research Agency, a government think-tank, highlights a secret front in high-tech warfare: turning enemy assets into liabilities. The internet and the growing complexity of electronic circuitry have made it much easier to install what...

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Three elected Mississippi Democrats announced Tuesday they are switching to the Republican Party, a move Republicans described as a victory for the GOP and a rebuke of Democratic Party ideology. State Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, state Rep. Bobby Shows and Simpson County Superintendent of Education Joe Welch announced the changes in their party affiliation during a news conference Tuesday at Mississippi Republican Party headquarters in Jackson. The party switches don't shift the balance of power in either house of the state Legislature, but GOP officials said it's part of continuing trend in Mississippi and beyond. At least...
