  • Jameis Winston's Alleged Victim Will 'Absolutely' Sue the FSU Quarterback

    ABC ^ | Jan. 8, 2014 | MATT GUTMAN and ALYSSA NEWCOMB
    "I want heads to roll," Pat Carroll, the attorney for the woman who claims Winston raped her in December 2012, told ABC News in an exclusive interview. Carroll said the Tallahassee Police Department was negligent in handling her client's case against the 20-year-old Heisman Trophy winner. He claims the way police handled the allegations led to a prosecutor's decision to drop the case. "Absolutely you're going to see a civil suit," Carroll said. "You can not have law enforcement that is not held accountable." Carroll said, “The family is proceeding, with civil action against the TPD and Jameis Winston. And...

    I am new to Free Republic. I look forward to being a small part of this community. I see by many of the postings that most of the posters on this website are ANTI-Romney. That is good because I am too. I am a conservative from Tallahassee, Florida. I am torn between Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Reading some of the postings I see there are passionate folks on the Newt side as well as on the Rick side. I am leaning toward Rick Santorum because I think he can best beat Romney in the Primary and frankly I think...

It's not that we don't "know" what faith Obama subscribes to -- it's more that we don't believe him. Or you. Sorry. Not buying. Besides, sometimes we just like to tweak you with our poll answers -- and use any poll as an excuse to "vote against Obama" in any way, shape or form. ** Frankly, it has been equal parts comedy and insult to watch the ruling class media haplessly wrestle with the reality that millions of Americans believe Obama to be...

    My secret sources have discovered another bizarre twist in the ongoing Climategate scandal: Breaking! Al Gore Demands Partial Recount of Climate Data As the impact of the global warming scandal widens, Nobel Prize winner and long time spokesperson for the movement demanded a partial recount of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data. In asking for the partial recount, Mr Gore asked that any data tending to show global cooling should be re-counted while data tending to show global warming be left as it is. When asked whether this would tend to skew the data in favor of global...

  • Democrats were routinely briefed on Bush torture techniques, document shows

    05/09/2009 1:20:55 AM PDT · by RC one · 3 replies · 567+ views
    The CIA has released a devastating document detailing the dates and explicit details of secret Congressional briefings in which members of Congress were told of the Bush administration’s torture techniques and when they had been used. The document is explicit (PDF here). Most damning, perhaps, is its description of a meeting held between CIA staff and then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Porter Goss and now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which shows that Pelosi was briefed on the Bush Administration’s torture techniques in 2002 — even though she’s publicly said she was never told about the use of waterboarding. Equally striking, however, is...

    After losing some $30 million from advertisers while they covered President Obama's three primetime news conferences in recent months, the major television networks are likely to follow Fox's lead and turn down the White House when it asks them to preempt a primetime time period any time soon, the Hollywood Reporter reported today (Friday), citing several unnamed network executives. "We will continue to make our decisions on White House requests on a case-by-case basis, but the Fox decision gives us cover to reject a request if we feel that there is no urgent breaking news that is going to be...

    Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh signed an eight-year, $400 million contract in 2008 with Clear Channel Communications! In terms even I can understand, that's $50 million a year -- not to mention tens of millions more in endless endorsements. I've just got to ask: Why on God's green Earth does he make so much money? Yes, I realize Limbaugh is the de facto Führer of the Republican Party. Yet, as far as I can tell, he's making well over half-a-billion dollars the next eight years for doing nothing more than always being wrong. Didn't Limbaugh predict the invasion of Iraq...

    If you do not assume a priori, as Big Journalism demands that we all do, that journalism is above reproach and "given special protection in the Constitution for the protection of the public interest," you will realize that the following quotation from The Wealth of Nations applies directly to the Associated Press. People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible, indeed, to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would...

Umm Osama, the founder of al-Qaeda's first women-only website, al-Khansa, joined several others on the programme to discuss how they renounced jihadist ideology. Among those who sought a response to this question was an imam from the Medina mosque, Saleh Ibn Awad al-Mudamsi, and the father of a young al-Qaeda suspect held in an Iraqi prison.

    If we rigidly applied truth-in-advertising laws to the national media in their coverage of the 2006 campaign, we would have first declared that the stuff between the commercials wasn't "news" as much as a boatload of free infomercial advertising for the Democrats. The news reports should have led with the sentence, "I'm Nancy Pelosi, and I approved this newscast." Republicans made a lot of mistakes and caused themselves a pile of problems. Their house is a mess -- it's time to tear down and start over. But I will say this unequivocally: In 25 years of looking at the national...

Two and one-half hours is a long time to sit still watching a film, but this one was gripping and tension-filled and visually dazzling. ... One gripping scene shows Massoud's forces--and CIA agents surrounding bin Laden's encampments and then being called back when National Security Adviser Sandy Berger refuses to give a go-ahead for the operation. That scene, according to 9/11 commission Chairman Thomas Kean, an adviser to...

    Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, then serving as American ambassadors to France and Britain, respectively, met in 1786 in London with the Tripolitan Ambassador to Britain, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja. These future American presidents were attempting to negotiate a peace treaty which would spare the United States the ravages of jihad piracy—murder, enslavement (with ransoming for redemption), and expropriation of valuable commercial assets—emanating from the Barbary states (modern Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya, known collectively in Arabic as the Maghrib). During their discussions, they questioned Ambassador Adja as to the source of the unprovoked animus directed at the nascent...

"This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat.

    In the unfortunate argument about peak oil supply, what constitutes "oil" is usually poorly defined. Canada's vast bitumen deposits, mostly located in northern Alberta, offer insight into the difficulty of determining what oil is, defining proved reserves, and peak production. There is little agreement on how this bitumen should be classified. Many folks do it the way World Oil does: with explanations and footnotes. One of our reasons for not classifying bitumen the same as conventional proved reserves is the fact that it presently relies on large amounts of natural gas and water for extraction and processing, as well as...

    Leon County commissioners took a decisive step Tuesday toward allowing voters to decide whether the county and city should have a merged law-enforcement agency under an elected sheriff. The county commissioners voted to send Tallahassee commissioners ballot language for a proposed referendum, but that doesn't mean voters will have the chance to decide the issue of merging the Sheriff's Office and the Police Department. City commissioners - who so far have expressed no desire to merge the agencies - would have to agree to a dual referendum inside and outside city limits. Another alternative, which some consider unlikely, would be...

    Half the skin on his face was torn away and his left hand was shattered. But Tucson Police Officer David Lewis knew he had to put his pain aside. He forced up his arm and pointed his gun at the suspect and commanded him to stop. Moments later, the man was taken into custody, accused of leading police on a crosstown chase in which he used his car as a ramrod aimed at officers. Lewis, 32, was pinned to his squad car by the burglary suspect's car in the incident and was dragged 150 feet. Many thoughts went through his...

    In the battle for Fallujah, terrorists used women and children as human shields against American soldiers. On April 27, 2004, in Jerusalem, Hamas used a Palestinian human bomb to kill two Palestinian alleged "collaborators." On April 28, 2004, even as UN envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi, was busy characterizing Israeli policy as the "great poison in the region," Jordanian police arrested Al Qaeda operatives who were quite literally trying to launch a chemical poison attack that might have killed 80,000 Jordanians and Americans. And, on May 1, 2004, in Gaza, Palestinian gunmen shot and killed a Jewish woman who was eight-months pregnant...

    To say the New York Times is obsessed with domestic violence against women is an understatement. A search of the NYT database reveals over 337,000 “hits” on the phrase “violence against women” just since 1996! The Times has gotten in a lot of hot water for its long-standing anti-male and other forms of bias. Visit the Times Watch at www.timeswatch.com and you will see the many ways that the NYT slants, distorts, filters, and otherwise biases the truth. Last week, RADAR launched an ambitious campaign for the Times to report both sides of the domestic violence issue. But the NYT...

    One month after the April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City bombing (search) that killed 168 people, authorities demolished what was left of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building (search). Officials said the implosion was a necessary part of the psychological recovery for the citizens of Oklahoma City. But critics question the FBI’s tactics and argue the building came down too soon and the implosion is one piece of a government cover-up. Survivor VZ Lawton remembers the events after the attack. “I was in my office at my desk signing papers and all of a sudden the building began to shake,” said...
