    'The American people deserve to know the truth to this' In a report on the bizarre scandal centering on Pakistani-born Democratic congressional IT aides, a House investigation concluded the aides accessed the data of members for whom they did not work, sometimes logging in as lawmakers to cover their tracks. The report summarizing the findings of a four-month internal investigation that said the behavior of the aides mirrored a “classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization,” the Daily Caller News Foundation reported. Authorities said there is evidence the members’ data may have been aggregated onto one server,...

    Three men carrying false identification were denied access to the federal courthouse in downtown Miami Thursday. They attempted to enter at multiple vehicle check-points until security guards recognized one of the men and immediately contacted deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service. The men used badges that resembled those from three different federal agencies, including a U.S. Marshal badge, but within seconds of examining the badges, security guards knew they were fraudulent. Once the men were detained, officers searched their vehicle and discovered other fraudulent law enforcement clothing. One man was arrested and could face charges by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,...

    Alert readers have reported that their flight, United Airlines 3681, from St. Louis to Washington Dulles had to make an emergency return to the gate as it prepared for take-off. According to local officials, it was found that two men who had boarded the plane as ‘federal air marshals’ didn’t have the proper credentials. Passengers were deplaned, all luggage was removed and re-scanned. All passengers were also re-screened. Passengers are now in the process of re-boarding. There is no word on the two ‘air marshals.’ BigGovernment has contacted security officials in St. Louis. Ron Meyer, of Young America Foundation, was...

    State insurance regulators are encountering sites designed to mimic ObamaCare's enrollment portal, the online hub where millions of people are meant to purchase healthcare coverage. Attempts at imitating have met with cease-and-desist letters; the sites could confuse consumers seeking to enter ObamaCare's marketplaces. In New Hampshire, the insurance commissioner reportedly cracked down on one webpage last week that could have been mistaken for the state's insurance exchange. And regulators from Washington, Pennsylvania and Connecticut are warning the health insurance industry against creating sites that might mislead the public. The healthcare law is expected to prompt fraud attempts similar to...

    Cardinal Denounces Proposal to Legalize Abortion in the Dominican Republic Says Supporters of the Measure Are Either "Sick", "Hypocritical", or "Comedians" By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, September 10, 2007 ( Cardinal Archbishop of Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, lashed out last week at politicians and groups agitating to legalize abortion in the country. When asked  about a recent proposal to legalize abortion for "therapeutic" purposes, he shot back: "No, no abortion, there is nothing more to say." "No one has the right to kill anyone and some of us are sick, some are hypocrites, some comedians who are...
  • "Impostors!" - the latest accusation trend.

    10/17/2005 4:24:17 AM PDT · by BlueHornet · 28 replies · 545+ views
    It appears the latest popular way to discredit those who publish opposing views on forums is to accuse them of being impostors, not really who they claim to be, the same person posting under several names, as though no two people could possibly share the same opinions. This has happened on a variety of sites on the internet. Moderators find it an easy way of doing away with people they don't like who stay within the rules. Whether it is on a TV forum, or a political forum, the trend seems to be the same. TV Heaven, a while back,...

    "Extraordinary Circumstances"By Ben | May 25, 2005 The Left’s latest bid to overturn the seven-month-old presidential election has partially succeeded. Late Monday night, a coalition of seven moderate Republicans agreed to give the Democratic Party the right to permanently obstruct any nominee deemed unacceptable by its activist base. In return for preserving their inalienable right to abuse the filibuster through the end of this Congressional term, the Democrats agreed to stop wielding it against three of the president’s ten judicial nominees. The bi-partisan coalition of fourteen legislators – including Robert Byrd, Harry Reid, and John McCain – further agreed,...

    BAGHDAD, March 12 -- Four men suspected in the slaying of two Americans working for the occupation authority in Iraq appear to be active Iraqi police officers, U.S. officials said Friday. The Americans, Fern L. Holland, 33, and Robert J. Zangas, 44, and Holland's Iraqi translator, Salwa Ourmashi, were shot dead around 6 p.m. Tuesday near Hilla, about 60 miles south of Baghdad. Shortly afterward, Polish troops apprehended six Iraqi men riding in the victims' car and discovered that four carried cards that identified them as police, officials said.

    BAGHDAD, IRAQ - U.S. officials are worried that Iraqi police – not just impostors in Iraqi uniforms – may have been behind the killings of two coalition staffers and their translator, the top American general in Iraq said Thursday. The three were the first civilians from the U.S. occupation authority to be killed in Iraq. The shooting Tuesday night raised two possibilities: that guerrillas had adopted a new tactic of posing as police to carry out attacks, or that some members of the security forces being trained by U.S. troops are turning to violence. The Americans and an Iraqi woman...
