    Remember that bird strike in April that forced a Delta flight to make an emergency landing? The actual incident was caught on video by author Grant Cardone, who is now on some FAA "you're a troublemaker" list because he shot that video when his iPad was supposed to be turned off. Cardone was on CNN this morning to discuss the letter he'd received from the FAA's Supervisory Principal Operations Inspector regarding the incident. Reads the letter: "Your failure to comply with flight attendant instructions during a critical phase of flight and an aircraft emergency could have affected the safe outcome...

    Jeff Lord at the American Spectator recently sat down with a real troublemaker for an interview. 2010 U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell sat down with Jeff and the first copy of her new book “Troublemaker” for a chat. I’ll let you read most of Jeff’s piece over at the American Spectator but I thought that the following excerpt aptly described O’Donnell’s campaign. THE REAL POINT HERE, as more and more Americans get with every passing day, is that this is precisely the game played with non-Establishment politicians right from the get-go. A viewing of the 1939 classic film Mr. Smith...

    We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this. 1. It's impossible for us to enforce.2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.4. Thick skin helps.5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply. Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps. Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop.

    WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) contended Friday that President Bush is rushing new troops to Iraq and betting that Congress won't cut off funds once they're in battle. The White House called her assertion "poisonous." In an exchange of harsh rhetoric that underscored the intensity of the political fight, Pelosi, D-Calif., said the war should not be "an obligation of the American people in perpetuity." "The president knows that because the troops are in harm's way, that we won't cut off the resources. That's why he's moving so quickly to put them in harm's way,"...

    CHICAGO (AP) - Minister Louis Farrakhan said in a letter to followers this month that he is seriously ill, and he asked the Nation of Islam's leaders to carry on in his absence to make sure the movement "will live long after I and we have gone." Farrakhan, 73, said he began suffering pain earlier this year similar to 1998, when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent surgery. He said doctors discovered an ulcer in his anal area during a visit to Cuba in March. Since then, he has lost 35 pounds while battling "serious infection and inflammation,"...

    WASHINGTON - In a spirited attack, the State Department's spokesman on Friday accused Syria of making trouble not only for Iraq, by allowing foreign fighters to infiltrate the country, but also for Lebanon and the Palestinians. "Syria, more and more, is being recognized as a destabilizing element in the region," Adam Ereli said Friday. "It's not just about Iraq; it's about Iraq, it's about Lebanon, it's about the Palestinian Authority. Because there's a connection between Syria and terrorism and murder and mayhem in each of these three different areas." Syrian President Bashar Assad's government insists it is doing what it...

    Communist China is baring its fangs again, and that should focus renewed attention here in the U.S. on Beijing's military and economic buildup (aided and abetted by the industrialized world with the help of your tax dollars) and the spy network right here on our soil. China's rubber-stamp Parliament has enacted into law a clear threat to take the island of Taiwan by force if necessary. That threat has been hanging over Taiwan ever since the Mainland Communist revolution of 1949 chased the pro-Western anti-communist Chinese government to the island. In passing the law, China ignored White House concerns that...

    An embattled pastor announced his resignation Sunday, making him the second Dallas Catholic Diocese priest in a week to fall in connection with sexual misconduct allegations. The Rev. William "Bill" Richard said he was leaving Our Lady of the Lake Church to bring "peace and reconciliation" to the parish, where protesters recently began pressing Dallas Bishop Charles Grahmann to remove him. They have cited Father Richard's efforts to save the job of a top aide who is serving probation for indecent exposure and his dismissal of critics from church positions. Bishop Grahmann responded to the campaign by seeking...

    10:48 PM CST on Monday, February 7, 2005 By BROOKS EGERTON / The Dallas Morning News Dallas County District Attorney Bill Hill is launching a broad criminal investigation of how Catholic Bishop Charles Grahmann and his staff have handled sexual abuse cases, officials confirmed Monday. The goal is to determine whether the Dallas Diocese "has received any allegations of abuse by members of the clergy that have not subsequently been reported to law enforcement," said Rachel Horton, a spokeswoman for Mr. Hill. She said two recent disclosures made prosecutors suspicious of the diocese's written insistence, in 2002, that it had...

    Can someone please organize and take up a huge collection to coax a Border Patrol Agent to come out and speak the truth about the situation on the U.S. Mexico Border? On the likely chance that this person is fired; I presume this person would need about $150,000 to support his/her family for a few years. That's a start. Terrorist Warning.com has made mention to WMDs by way of suicide bombers in the U.S. Also mentioned is the vunerable border. Just read an article that called Ramzi Yosef (WTC Part 1) a genius. These terrorist are smart and relentless. I...

    Something Suspicious Is in the Air By Courtland Milloy Monday, March 24, 2003; Page B01 The sign above the highway leading into the nation's capital advised motorists to "Report Suspicious Activity" and gave an 800 number for the Office of Homeland Security. As a reporter, I figured this was right up my alley and set out yesterday to report on things that struck me as suspicious. For instance, near the Jefferson Memorial, I saw a five-foot-tall metal box that was hooked up to an electrical outlet and equipped with a high-tech antenna and chrome-dome receptor. What was it? I asked...

But she also sent them to top White House officials, who eagerly perused them as unvarnished barometers of what the press...
