    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois officials have granted parole to an 80-year-old inmate sentenced to life in prison for the 1960 killings of three suburban Chicago women, whose brutalized bodies were found in a cave at a state park. The Illinois Prisoner Review Board voted 9-4 Thursday to approve Chester Weger's 24th request for release.
  • Piers Morgan Claims Omarosa Was 'Abusive' & 'Vicious' After He Rejected Her Alleged Sexual Advances

    Piers Morgan is recalling the moment Omarosa Manigault Newman allegedly propositioned him for sex — and making multiple scathing claims about his former Celebrity Apprentice castmate. A day after the journalist and television personality first accused Manigault Newman, 44, of propositioning him for sex to win the reality show — they both competed on season 1 — in a column for the Daily Mail, Morgan, 52, further detailed their off-camera interactions during a candid sit-down interview on Wednesday’s The Talk, when he called her “unbelievable.” “Day one, she sidles up to me. I’ve never met this woman before. She comes...
  • Google’s left-wing bias steers users to vicious articles trashing the late Roger Ailes

    Google is by far the most used search engine in the world. Think about that. Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans. This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered. (See screen grab of search results above.)

    Father Paul Nicholson—the Canadian 'missionary priest of the New Evangelization'—has done a lot of unpriestly things, but this tops the list and of course does precisely nothing to minimize the perverse, predatory image of the modern Catholic priest in the eyes of so many scandalized Catholics. One priest savaging another, just moments after his sudden death? Who behaves this way!

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly’s 18-year-old daughter, who was on vacation with her father and Giffords, was walking the American bulldog on a leash when the 65-pound dog saw the sea lion, ran off and attacked. Nathan, who declined to give his last name, happened to...

    Steve Jobs Rosebud. Seventy years ago Orson Welles directed Citizen Kane, which critics still praise as the most innovative film ever. Welles modeled the main character, Kane, on a famous northern California magnate who revolutionized the media of his day, William Randolph Hearst. "Rosebud" was Kane's dying declaration, and the narrative structure of the film emphasized the work of a reporter trying to figure out the meaning of that word and the meaning of Kane's life. Everyone he interviewed saw Kane through the prism of his own preoccupations. The reporter ended up much like the blind man feeling different parts...

    CHICAGO (AFP) – There is a brutally frigid point on the thermometer -- minus 40 degrees -- where Celsius and Fahrenheit meet, and it was even colder than that in parts of the US Midwest as an Arctic blast struck over the weekend. Americans were bundling up Saturday as the coldest weather of the season was forecast to sock cities from Chicago to New York and Boston, with temperatures that have already prompted weather service warnings. The coldest weather in two years slammed Minnesota, where International Falls -- which proudly proclaims itself the "Icebox of the Nation" -- recorded a...

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – US President Barack Obama said Friday his policies had pulled America out of the most vicious economic dive since the 1930s, setting battle lines for mid-term elections in November. Obama put the Republicans on notice he will vigorously defend his record, despite the fact many Americans do not yet feel the recovery he is touting, while economic data hints that the rebound may be slowing. "Our first mission was to break the momentum of the deepest and most vicious recession since the Great Depression," Obama said in the gambling hub of Las Vegas, wrapping up...

    At face value, a recent study clearly shows Section 8 housing participants are arrested at a higher rate than other renters and homeowners in Dubuque. Even before the study was released, waiting list preferences were tightened and the types of crimes resulting in dismissal from the rental voucher program had increased. But there is more to Section 8. With three part-time jobs and two children -- one with a medical condition that requires frequent trips to Iowa City -- Shannon Backeburg and Matt Murray live in a small but comfortable apartment in Dubuque's Point area with assistance from the Section...

    Savage beagles terrorize East End By TAYLOR K. VECSEY January 31, 2010 Charlie Brown, watch your back -- a plague of vicious wild beagles has struck Long Island! These floppy-eared terrors are no lovable Snoopys -- they're abandoned hunting dogs that live in packs and have gone from humble pets to hounds from hell. Mattituck resident Dot Faszczewski came face to face with the canine menace two weeks ago, when she was set upon by a group of crazed, hungry beagles as she walked her pet dogs near her parents' Orient Point home. She said it was like a scene...

    A MELBOURNE man who conducted a reign of terror against his ex-lover, including strangling her cat with a telephone cord, has been jailed for more than nine years. Paul Maher began his two-month crime spree after breaking up with Lynne Forehan and when tensions grew over his contact with their toddler. The County Court in Melbourne heard Maher, then 24, began harassing and threatening Ms Forehan and her family last year. The court was told he threw two Molotov cocktails at her parent's house where she was staying, setting the loungeroom alight. He also ransacked her North Melbourne flat and...

    The pit bull that critically injured a young girl during a vicious attack in her East Anchorage home was put to death Wednesday at the request of its owner, according to Anchorage Animal Care and Control. The family pet, Dozer, was also responsible for attacking the girl's baby sitter Tuesday afternoon. A neighbor shot the dog in the leg while trying to get it off the baby sitter. The owner surrendered Dozer to animal control officials later that night, and the dog was killed by lethal injection Wednesday evening. "He was owner-surrendered for euthanasia by his owners," said animal control...

    Islam is a wicked, vicious faith, BNP leader tells court By Paul Stokes (Filed: 26/01/2006) The leader of the British National Party told a jury yesterday that he believed Islam was a "wicked, vicious faith". Nick Griffin, 46, is on trial accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words intended to stir up racial hatred. He and party activist Mark Collett, 25, were both charged over comments they made in a series of speeches that were covertly recorded by a BBC reporter in 2004. Griffin, a Cambridge graduate, who is married with four children, went in the witness box to...

    Throughout the public evisceration of Harriet Miers, even her critics have tended to concede one of President Bush's main claims: Miers couldn't have been a complete loser to rise to the top of the bar and of her law firm. Wrong. Mediocrity—that's a better word for it...

    Lima, Oct 18 (EFE).- Peru's Abimael Guzman, the founder of a Maoist guerrilla movement-cum-death cult that sometimes dynamited the bodies of just-murdered functionaries and hanged canines from lamposts as warnings to "capitalist dogs," also had his soft, sappy and romantically poetic side. The man known by his fanatic followers as "President Gonzalo" revealed some of his secrets in a hand-written ode dedicated to his wife, who died in 1988 under mysterious circumstances. A video seized in 1992 by the security forces, after Guzman's arrest, shows the wake of Augusta La Torre, better known as "Comrade Norah" and the Shining Path's...
  • Democrats Hate America; Embrace Failure - (excellent new Evan Sayet column; hits nail on head)

    If Democrats like Dick Durbin believe the vicious attacks they so relentlessly spew against America and America’s military then I wouldn’t blame them for hating this country and seeking its overthrow. After all, if America were truly led by Adolph Hitler (as the Democrats repeatedly call George W. Bush) and our soldiers were “only following orders,” like the Nazis that Durbin compared them to, and the American people not only solidly returned Hitler to power but did so with even more support at every level of government, all good people should seek its demise. What is more likely, however, is...

    Blumenthal Responds, Kind Of I guess we can add Sidney Blumenthal to the ever-growing roster of Power Line readers. He took offense at a post we did yesterday that consisted of an email exchange between one of our readers and Blumenthal, to which I added some commentary. At the risk of boring those who remember the original post, I will reproduce it here to give context to Mr. Blumenthal's response: Former Clinton apparatchik Sidney Blumenthal is better known by the well-earned moniker of Sid Vicious. He now plies his trade in the pages of Britain's far-left Guardian. Sid Vicious addressed...
