    The 50-year-old Tennessee man accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old former student was arrested in Northern California — and the teenage girl was recovered safely after she was missing for more than a month, authorities said Thursday. Tad Cummins, a former high school teacher in rural Tennessee, was nabbed in California after disappearing with Elizabeth Thomas on March 13, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a post on Twitter. The TBI said Thomas was recovered safely. The two were discovered at daybreak Thursday morning after a caller had tipped authorities the night before that the pair was living "in a...

    Vice president-elect Mike Pence will be sworn into office Jan. 20 by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Reuters reported Thursday. Thomas, a conservative legal icon, was included in the official program for Trump’s inauguration as shared online by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. Trump will be sworn in by the Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Traditionally, the chief justice swears in the president, and an incoming vice president picks someone else to administer his oath of office. Thomas, 68, is the second black justice to serve on the Supreme Court and is one of its most...

    Police in rural Louisiana say a Walmart employee found a baby girl in a bathroom a few hours after the infant’s mother gave birth to her and dumped her in a trash can. The infant was only about 4 hours old when an employee at a Walmart Supercenter in the city of New Roads in Pointe Coupee Parish found her just after 7 p.m. on Friday, Lt. Shael Stringer of the New Roads Police Department told The Washington Post. The mother, Kyandrea Thomas, a woman in her 30s, was found shortly after. Stringer said a Walmart employee saw Thomas in...

    Desperate Dems reach bottom of the barrel.. try more false sex abuse allegations against Trump. They know they are in trouble. They tried this before...remember? Dems did the same to Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2003 in the CA recall race. He won easily. They did the same thing to Clarence Thomas for his Supreme Court nomination in 1991. He will be still rendering decisions this term. 11 years ago Trump said bad words....11 years before Ted Kennedy ran for president in 1980 he murdered Mary Jo Kopecke. The rat let her drown. Yet he is still lauded as a great guy...

    The new Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture treats conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas like a mere footnote while heralding the woman who accused him of sexual harassment, Anita Hill. Twenty-five years ago, Thomas became the second black Supreme Court Justice when he succeeded Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice. Neither man's accomplishments as jurists on the high court get as much attention as Hill, though Marshall's work on a landmark case as a lawyer is recognized.

    In Florida Monday, following the bombings in New York and New Jersey, Donald Trump referred to the captured bombing suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, as an “evil thug.” He then added, “Hillary Clinton is a weak and ineffective person and I will tell you, if you choose Donald Trump, these problems are going to go away far, far greater than anybody would think.” Whatever one thinks of Trump’s rhetoric, his is a voice of certainty at a time when a growing number of Americans appear fed up with a seemingly ineffective government, weak statements and even weaker responses. Example: Josh Earnest,...

    Thomas Gibson has been fired from “Criminal Minds” following an on-set fight. “Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from ‘Criminal Minds,'” ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios said in a joint statement Friday. “Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.” Gibson, 54, was initially suspended for two episodes of the CBS series after a physical altercation with co-executive producer and writer Virgil Williams two weeks ago. On Friday, Gibson told Page Six in a statement, “I love ‘Criminal Minds’ and have put my heart and soul into it...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas narrowly avoided the terrorist attack that left at least 84 people dead in Nice, France Thursday evening. The San Diego Union Tribune reports that Thomas left Nice hours before a terrorist plowed through a crowded Nice street filled with Bastille Day revelers. The associate justice had been in the city teaching a program through the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego.

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas urged college graduates who seek to "preserve liberty" to do so by fulfilling the duties of their daily vocations rather than attempting to achieve sweeping political goals. "At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.

    Modern Syrian Christians of Kerala (the majority Christian population here) believe that the Apostle Thomas—the one who so famously questioned Jesus—visited here in a.d. 52 and baptized their forefathers. Historians surmise that the diverse, rich trading center of Kerala may well have drawn this Palestinian Jew of the Roman Empire who wished to preach the Gospel. Thousands of churches today bear his name, their rituals and theology derived from Eastern Orthodox traditions in the liturgical language Syriac, a formation of Aramaic, the dialect Jesus—and Thomas—spoke. For decades now, the liturgical language of Kerala Christians has been Malayalam, the language of...

    On a day that marked the first time in 10 years that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas uttered a single word from the bench, the British-based tabloid Daily Mail mocked Thomas’s rare inquest in a vile headline: “IT SPEAKS! Justice Clarence Thomas asks a question in court for the first time in 10 YEARS in gun case .” Associate Justice Thomas questioned a government lawyer in a case to determine whether those guilty of committing domestic violence can lawfully have their Constitutional right to possess firearms restricted. Thomas asked the lawyer to list an instance when a “misdemeanor violation suspends...

    Chief Justice John Roberts is "disgraceful'' and a "disappointment'' to conservatives, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Saturday, while praising Associate Justice Clarence Thomas as his favorite member of the U.S. Supreme Court. "Justice Roberts really let us down. What he did with Obamacare was disgraceful, and I think he did that because he wanted to be popular inside the Beltway,'' Trump told about 4,000 supporters. The celebrity billionaire was referring to the chief justice's two votes to uphold key provisions of President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law and to the expressway around the District of Columbia, an area...

    Over the past several days, GOP hopefuls looked to curry favor with hardcore culture warriors. Here's what happened.Last week was one for the political books. The Pope brought his message about the need to help the poor and deal with climate change to America, apparently leading Catholic Supreme Court Justices Scalia, Alito and Thomas to boycott his historic speech to a joint session of Congress. At the same time, the evangelical activist community held its annual Values Voter Summit featuring many of the GOP presidential candidates who once would have been excited to celebrate the pope’s visit but were instead...

    Via the Free Beacon, I think it was Dan McLaughlin of Red State who tweeted after last week’s SSM decision was released, “Now the contest begins to see who’ll be the angriest winner.” His point was that, for a movement that’s been unstoppable culturally over the past 10 years, there’s a curiously strong impulse towards nastiness in some lefties’ reaction to each new victory. With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over. Takei’s overreacting to a point Thomas made in response to Kennedy’s idea that state recognition of gay marriage is...
