  • 23 insane, disgusting and flat-out inhumane claims from Mountainside police lawsuit

    Sexual harassment. Homophobic games. Racial slurs. Testicles on a soda can. A chief who points his gun at his officers. A computer riddled with porn viruses. And, to top it all off, a big blue dildo. These are among the many, many antics alleged by Mountainside police officers and borough employees against other officers in a recently filed lawsuit — a 46-page tale that suggests the craziest things happening in the teeny, sleepy, fewer-than-7,000-residents borough of Mountainside have been occurring inside the police department.

    A former Union High School teacher who in 2011 called homosexuality a "perverted spirit" that "breeds like cancer" has agreed to a three-year suspension of her teaching certificates. The posts on Jenye "Viki" Knox's personal Facebook page eventually caused the special education teacher and faculty adviser to the school's Bible study group to resign. She later filed a federal lawsuit claiming school officials had violated her free speech and religious rights.

  • Who Is Patricia Jannuzzi? (Catholic School teacher fired for "homophobic" Facebook comment)

    National Review ^ | March 19, 2015 Read more at: | Maggie Gallagher
    I can’t get this question out of my head: Who is Patricia Jannuzzi? These last few weeks, we’ve seen a lot of religious organizations publicly wrestling with gay rights. The Mormon Church authorized new protections for gay people, while attempting to protect religious believers, too. A rapidly dwindling denomination of Presbyterians decided to embrace gay marriage. San Francisco’s City Church, the largest evangelical megachurch, embraced gay marriage for its congregants. Cardinal Dolan was the grand marshal of the first St. Patrick’s Day parade that permitted people to march with LGBT banners. Some of these churches are discarding ancient Christian moral...

Breaking News: Legislator calls for investigation into Kean University's $219K conference tableIt costs more than $44,000 in tuition to attend Kean University for four years, and many of the school’s students struggle to pay the bill.  But the taxpayer-supported school in the township of Union spent $219,000 so far and has authorized up to $270,000 — about the average price of a house in the nearby working-class neighborhood — for a custom-made, circular conference table that seats 23 and features data ports, microphones and an illuminated...

    The sad tendency in America these days is that the needs of the few - in many cases, the very few - are given priority over the rights of the majority, and almost always at the expense of liberty.Frankly, it is a repulsive trend.I have, in previous articles, called this the Tyranny of Equality - born out of a sense of sick, arrant entitlement - with the devitalizing aim of making sure that every single human being alive in America is not only treated exactly the same, but that no one anywhere at anytime is inconvenienced, insulted, or made to...

    NEW YORK, Dec 05, 2002 (AP WorldStream via COMTEX) -- The discovery of a skeleton in a remote corner of Laos may mark the beginning of the end of a fabled chapter of the Cold War, when an American soldier of fortune known as "Earthquake McGoon" became a household name for his daring exploits in China and Southeast Asia. The recent finding by a U.S. task force has raised hopes for identifying James B. McGovern, or possibly his co-pilot, Wallace A. Buford, who were shot down in 1954 in the last days of the French Indochina war. "That's incredible...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- In an unusual move by the N.C. State Bar, the regulatory group has charged a former district attorney and his assistant with prosecutorial misconduct in a 1996 murder case that ended in a death sentence.

    He was a Vietnam legend, the priest. Ralph Oriscello first heard about him while treating injured soldiers at the 93rd Evacuation Hospital in South Vietnam in the fall of 1967. One after another, the soldiers told the story of how the priest, unarmed except for a crucifix and a prayer, ran into the middle of a mortar firestorm and dragged wounded men to safety. As the battle escalated and the casualties mounted, so did the priest's momentum. With mortar shells exploding all around him, he brought back one injured man after another, saving lives and comforting souls. "Many of the...

    MONROE -- In a surprising turn of events, Monroe City Manager Doug Spell resigned Wednesday afternoon, but neither he nor the City Council offered any clue as to why. The council unanimously -- Mayor Judy Davis was excused from the meeting -- accepted the resignation and its terms effective today, but offered no official explanation as to what led to the impromptu talks about his job performance. The council met in closed session for nearly 30 minutes to resume talks about Spell's job status that began Tuesday night after its regularly scheduled meeting. Spell, 46, was not present prior to...

John Edwards is from North Carolina and we are doing our best to make sure that the Tarheel State does not go into the Blue column in November. We are a young fledgling group, that is willing to put its resources to work...
