    It seems Donald Trump and Vermont’s NEK mega developer Bill Stenger have something in common-they both love EB-5 investors from China. Considering all his anti-immigration and China is “killing us,” stealing our jobs and money rhetoric, Trump surprisingly has no qualms accepting Chinese investor financing for a development project in New Jersey under the Trump® name. chairmantrump1 The Federal EB-5 visa program provides foreign investors with a US green card, for them and their families, and (after two years) permanent resident status in exchange for agreeing to invest $500,000 in an approved US business. In recent years the majority of...

    .LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — According to the federal government, two sisters in rural Kentucky do not exist. The women weren't born in a hospital, never went to public school and only recently obtained birth certificates after they sued the state. Still, that's not enough for Raechel and Stephanie Schultz to land legitimate jobs. The sisters need Social Security numbers, so they have sued the federal government. "No one has ever heard of anything like this before," said their attorney, Douglas Benge. "When the girls first came to see me, it's one of those things of, 'What do I do now?'"

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Larimer County officials have voted to approve a proposed $4.1 million settlement to a lawsuit filed by a man who was wrongly imprisoned for nearly 10 years for a woman's slaying that remains unsolved.

Masters' lawsuit claimed detectives and prosecutors maliciously targeted him and destroyed or withheld evidence that could have cleared him. Larimer County's board of commissioners voted 3-0 to approve the settlement. Three million...

    The View From 'White Man's World' Brothers, I'm sure that you've read all the stories, seen all the documentaries, and have watched more episodes of 'COPS' and 'America's Most Wanted' than you would want to admit. Nevertheless, our young men--and now our young women--are being shipped off to 'do time' in the juvenile justice system. And, we can't seem to stop them. Many have friends who 'have a taste for crime' and draw them in. Others have been 'soft handed' by 'sympathetic' judges, caseworkers, and cops. Still others have parent(s) who quickly 'take their side' against ANY authority figure; be...
