    “Ruby Ridge” used to refer to a geographical location in the state of Idaho, but after an incident that took place there 10 years ago on Aug. 21, the phrase has come to refer to a scandalous series of events that opened the eyes of many people to the inner workings of the federal government, including the vaunted Federal Bureau of Investigation. Now that 10 years have passed, the feds will accelerate their ongoing effort to “move forward” and have the scandal declared “ancient history.” But the Ruby Ridge episode should not be soon forgotten.On August 21, 1992 a paramilitary...

    Weaver's historic night a family affair ANAHEIM -- This is why Jered Weaver elected to stay with the Angels, turning his back on the prospect of a free-agency windfall next winter. With Dave and Gail Weaver, his parents, and Kristin, his wife, in attendance and cheering every delivery, Weaver unleashed his first no-hitter on Wednesday night at Angel Stadium, silencing the Twins, 9-0, by facing two over the minimum. "That was a major part of it, to stay at home, to have the comfort of my family and friends," Weaver said, referring to his decision to sign a five-year, $85...

    Top strategist quits, fears re-election of Deval Patrick Treasurer Tim Cahill’s floundering gubernatorial bid suffered another huge blow last night when his top strategist quit, saying the independent candidate’s slim hopes are only hurting Republican Charlie Baker’s chances. “We have to deal with reality as it is and not the way it ought to be,” said John Weaver, a national GOP powerbroker who quit Cahill’s campaign last night. “I would prefer Tim Cahill be the next governor. That’s not going to happen.” Weaver, who helped orchestrate U.S. Sen. John McCain’s 2000 presidential bid, told the Herald the move was “not...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates seem to be playing a game of chicken, with contenders waiting for someone to move first, observers said. Some 2012 GOP hopefuls this year seem more reticent about promoting themselves before the midterms in November while others are keeping mum for more strategic reasons, Politico reported Sunday. GOP 2008 presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, former Republican National Committee chief and current Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels are among those who are jockeying behind the scenes, leaving Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty virtually...

    This report delineates the various atrocities--and their consequences--committed at the hands of a rogue federal government. The gist of the atrocities committed in the government-initiated massacre can be summed up in the words of the FBI Deputy Assistant Director Danny Coulson, who wrote the following memo at the time: 'Memo: OPR 004477 Something to Consider 1. Charge against Weaver is Bull $@it. 2. No one saw Weaver do any shooting. 3. Vicki has no charges against her. 4. Weaver's defense. He ran down the hill to see what dog was barking at.

    She's poised to become the best-selling author in the United States, has a devoted base of conservative supporters and is considered a front-runner to lead the Republicans into the next election in 2012 - and yet key party strategists are tormented by the popularity of Sarah Palin. The very notion of a Palin candidacy has been derided in recent days by some of the brightest minds in the Republican party even as the former governor of Alaska outlines her policies on Afghanistan, energy and other issues of national importance. "Were she to be the nominee, we could have a catastrophic...

    Claims that the charges against McCain are “unsourced” leave out one source that is prominently mentioned: John Weaver.So – who is he, and can he be believed? I recall that Weaver’s name was directly associated with the stories, delivered to the press in the 2004 Bush-Kerry contest, that McCain was flirting with an offer floated by Kerry to become Kerry’s running mate. In the retelling of that story by the Kerry people, the person who is square in the middle of the discussions and negotiations was -- John Weaver. When McCain’s campaign was imploding, back in the fall 07, because...

    (CNN) — Former McCain political adviser John Weaver confirms to CNN that he did approach lobbyist Vicki Iseman about eight years ago, during McCain’s first presidential run, and told her she was threatening to undermine the heart of McCain’s campaign – that he is a reformer. Weaver says he arranged the meeting with Iseman — first reported by the New York Times — out of concern that she was “telling people around town” she was getting access to, and had influence with, McCain that Weaver says she did not have. But Weaver insists he never talked to or asked Iseman...

    GARY -- The death of a Gary reserve police officer has been ruled accidental by the Hammond Police Department. Hammond Police Chief Brian Miller said an "accidental firearms discharge" killed Kevin Weaver, 49, at Deb's Gun Range in Hammond on Saturday. "There was no criminal intent," Miller said. Miller said his officers will be sending the results of their investigation to the Lake County prosecutor's office and the Gary Police Department. Weaver went to the shooting range this weekend with several reserve officers from Gary to practice for an upcoming qualification test. At about 3 p.m., police said, reserve officer...

    On a cold and blustery evening in December 1989, Huthaifa Azzam, the teenage son of the legendary Jordanian-Palestinian mujahideen leader Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, went to the airport in Peshawar, Pakistan, to welcome a group of young men. All were new recruits, largely from Jordan, and they had come to fight in a fratricidal civil war in neighboring Afghanistan—an outgrowth of the CIA-financed jihad of the 1980s against the Soviet occupation there. The men were scruffy, Huthaifa mused as he greeted them, and seemed hardly in battle-ready form. Some had just been released from prison; others were professors and sheikhs. None...

Brent Metcalf, Joe Slaton, Dan LeClere, Jay Borschel and T.H. Leet -- all of whom redshirted as freshmen last season -- plan to enroll at Iowa but will lose a year of NCAA eligibility unless Virginia Tech releases them from their scholarship obligations. The fathers of Iowa natives Slaton, LeClere and Borschel said Weaver promised to...

    I have a few thoughts for you in response to some letters of late. The voices now crying for the impeachment of Bush were silent during Waco, Elian Gonzales and the first World Trade Center attack, Ruby Ridge and the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. Their favorite president presided over the the largest bubble burst in U.S. economic history (DOT.COM). China, India and Pakistan get nukes. The U.S. bombed Yugoslavia for weeks; hit the Chinese embassy and killed thousands of untold civilians. The U.S. did a lot of bombing from 30,000 feet because Clinton was afraid to lose one soldier....
