An 86-year-old Madison woman is fearing for her safety and has developed nightmares, because of a persistent scammer who regularly calls her day and night.
American Spectator, by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. Posted By: Desert Fox- Wed, 07 29 2015 10:29:02 GMT Regarding last weeks mass murder in Oregon, what is there to say that is new? There was a day in America when such an atrocity was almost unheard of. There were family feuds, mafia murders, and I guess what were called juvenile delinquents murders, though they were comparatively rare and for the most part ignored. Growing up in Chicago, I recall a family frienda celebrated Chicago police reporterwho told my parents on the occasion of the grisly murder of three young boys that such crimes happened in a big city more often than we might think, but usually journalists would not
American Thinker, by Trevor Thomas Posted By: Desert Fox- Wed, 07 27 2015 10:27:57 GMT President Obama wants us to politicize gun deaths in America. I decided to take him up on his invitation. I hope that no one is surprised that Obama took this opportunity again to attack guns, the gun industry, and those of us who are fans of the Second Amendment. This is what a community organizing career politician does. For liberals like Obama, virtually everything is political, or must be made so. Because political problems require political solutions, and thus, when something is politicized, those in favor of empowering and growing government get to do what they do best: give speeches, call
Breitbart Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 07 12 2015 10:12:26 GMT Rep. Jim Jordan (R'OH) 94% says that the House of Representatives will impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen this session. It is something that has to be done, the Washington Examiner reports Jordan, chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told members of the Young Americans Foundation. If we dont hold some people accountable in the executive branch for the executive overreach weve seen in [the Obama] administration, then theyll never get the message. Three months ago Jordan, chairman of the Subcommittee on Health Care, Benefits and Administrative Rules of the House Oversight and Government Operations Committee, was only willing to say
Daly Express [UK], by Jake Burman Posted By: Attercliffe- Wed, 07 04 2015 10:04:18 GMT Under the proposals, Brussels will threaten to withdraw aid, trade deals and visa arrangements if countries refuse to take back their economic migrants. The asylum claims of more than 400,00 seekers who entered the EU in the first half of the year are likely to be rejected, posing a problem for EU leaders. Ministers from member states, including Theresa May, will discuss a text warning countries they must send more migrants home. It reads: "Increased return rates should act as a deterrent to irregular migration." Migrants fleeing war'torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Libya could be among those deported if their asylum bids
Breitbart Big Government, by Patrick Howley Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 07 02 2015 10:02:59 GMT Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clintons operatives are digging up dirt about her potential primary challenger, Joe Biden, and leaking it to the press. David Brock, founder of the pro'Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, is overseeing a massive anti'Biden opposition research effort, New York Magazine reports. A source confirmed that Correct the Record is behind recent press attacks on Bidens character and record. The New York Times report on Bidens links to Wall Street banks had similar information to the kind being dug up by Brocks opposition researchers. And Politicos odd, barely'reported article dredging up Bidens controversial stint overseeing the
Politico, by Josh Gerstein Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 55 2015 09:55:57 GMT A new focus emerged Tuesday in the sprawling litigation over Hillary Clintons use of a private email server: the State Department official who may have authorized the private setup Clinton used for most of her four years as secretary of state. A conservative watchdog group pressed a federal judge to order Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy to appear in court to explain who greenlighted Clintons private server and who kept it running. He would be able to easily answer ... did she have the authorization to use Clintonemail.com? Judicial Watch attorney Michael Bekesha told U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. Mrs. Clinton
Boston Herald, by Howie Carr Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 48 2015 09:48:22 GMT I understand that Patches Kennedys book is a memoir, so he can basically write whatever he wants. But seriously, if the former Rhode Island congressman was as loaded as he claims he was for as long as he obviously was, how much can the reader really trust any of his recollections? It must suck to be Patches Kennedy. Even his own mommy dearest has thrown him under the 67 Oldsmobile Delmont, in the Kennedy familys personal fanzine, telling the Globe that she knew nothing about her sons new book, hasnt read it, etc. etc. They were soooo close, father and son. Like
Washington Times, by Donald Lambro Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 46 2015 09:46:10 GMT The measly number of jobs that the Obama economy created last month is raising new fears of a steeper employment decline this year and next. Last Fridays shocking Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report stunned economists, shook Wall Street, and offered little if any hope for long'term, unemployed Americans finding full'time work anytime soon. Theres nothing good in this mornings report, Carl Tennenbaum, chief economist at Northern Trust, said last week. We had very low levels of job creation, wage growth isnt budging, and the unemployment rate would have risen if the labor force participation rate hadnt fallen. The U.S. Labor Departments data'gathering
National Review Online, by David French Posted By: Pluperfect- Wed, 07 43 2015 09:43:49 GMT In August, my colleague Charlie Cooke wrote an epic rant daring the Left to stop talking about repealing the Second Amendment and start doing it. Introduce the repeal to Congress, work it through the states, and tell the American people what you want to do take from them a fundamental, enumerated right from the Bill of Rights. As Charlie eloquently outlines, repealing the Second Amendment is an impossible task. Even worse for the Left, its political suicide. But if the Supreme Courts decision in Obergefell v. Hodges teaches us anything, its that the age of judicial supremacy means that
American Spectator, by Scott McKay Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 40 2015 09:40:32 GMT If President Barack Obama follows through on his threat to visit Roseburg, Oregon later this week the House must pass a resolution of censure before he gets off Air Force One. Call the presidents planned trip to the site of the Umpqua Community College shootings last week the straw that broke the camels back, if you will. But his announcement Monday evening that he was going to Roseburg, after prominent individuals including the publisher of the local newspaper had made it clear he was not welcome there as a result of his statements following the shootings, display a crass disregard for
New York Post, by Marisa Schultz Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 36 2015 09:36:42 GMT WASHINGTON An employee of the computer company that maintained Hillary Rodham Clintons email server questioned if he was part of a coverup, according to documents released Tuesday. This whole thing really is covering up some shady st, the employee said in an Aug. 19 company email obtained by Sen. Ron Johnson (R'Wis.), chair of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The concerns by the Colorado'based Platte River Networks employee were aired after the Clinton camp ordered a reduction in the data stored during each server backup. The limits were ordered after the State Department contacted the former secretary of state
New York Post, by John Podhoretz Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 34 2015 09:34:33 GMT In 1992, a popular Republican bumper sticker the meme pre'Internet read: Annoy the Media. Re'elect Bush. It was designed to appeal to conservatives who might be seduced into voting for Ross Perot and make them rethink. This week, Hillary Clinton has seized on a version of this approach, only her bumper sticker would read: Annoy conservatives. Elect Hillary. And for the same reason as Bush: Shes looking to reinvigorate a floundering campaign. In the most recent polling, Clinton is trailing Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire by 16 points and hes nearly caught up to her in Iowa. Now, even
Washington Free Beacon, by Morgan Chalfant Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 31 2015 09:31:02 GMT A British supporter of the Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS) published the name and address of the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, demanding that American extremists kill him. The Mirror reported: Mirror Online has been monitoring jihadi chat on social media and has spotted several people linking to a text file containing instructions on how to find Robert ONeill, who claimed to have killed the al Qaeda chief. This information was shared by a British extremist claiming to be Mrs Terror Sally Jones, who dubbed ONeill a number one target and called for his immediate death.
Daily Caller, by Blake Neff Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 27 2015 09:27:26 GMT An Ivy League professor has suggested naming Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson coon of the year for saying it should be legal for private citizens to display the Confederate flag. Anthea Butler is a religious studies professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and also an active Twitter user with more than 62,000 tweets. Last week, another user tweeted a link to a Sports Illustrated article describing Carsons declaration that NASCAR fans should be allowed to show the Confederate flag. If only there was a coon of the year award Butler tweeted in response. The tweet was spotted by the website Campus Reform,
Business Insider, by Maxwell Tani Posted By: MissMolly- Wed, 07 22 2015 09:22:07 GMT Donald Trump is still the front'runner for the Republican presidential nomination. But there are more clear warning signs going forward for his candidacy. A new Public Policy Polling Poll released on Tuesday found Trump at the front of the pack with 27% support among Republican primary voters. That´s down 2 points since August, but still far ahead of his rivals. The next'closest candidate, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, garnered 17%, while Sen. Marco Rubio (R'Florida) climbed to third with 13% support.
McClatchy Newspapers, by Greg Gordon and Anita Kumar Posted By: MissMolly- Wed, 07 18 2015 09:18:40 GMT WASHINGTON Hillary Clinton hired a Connecticut company to back up her emails on a cloud storage system, and her lawyers have agreed to turn whatever it contains over to the FBI, a personal familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The disclosure came as a Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also asked the firm to turn over to the committee copies of any Clinton emails still in its possession. There were conflicting accounts as to whether the development could lead to recovery of any of Clintons more than 31,000 personal emails, which she said she deleted from her private server upon
PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 15 2015 09:15:19 GMT Remember those Wheres Waldo? books that were popular a while back? On each page, there was a cartoon crowd scene and you had to scan the various figures until you found Waldo, the guy in the wool hat and the striped sweater? They should put out a new book called Whos Hillary? On each page, thered be dozens of drawings of Hillary and youd have to figure out which was the real one? If any. There could be the hip, self'mocking Hillary we were treated to on Saturday Night Democrat Toady I mean Live! the other night. There could
John Kasich to ObamaCare critics: Do I need to buy Bibles for you people to remind you to care about the poor?
Hot Air, by Allahpundit Posted By: MissMolly- Wed, 07 09 2015 09:09:59 GMT I like Alex Burnss summary of this clip: Kasich basically defends Medicaid expansion the way an Aaron Sorkin character would. Precisely, and hes been doing it for more than two years despite endless conservative upset at him for equating state'backed entitlements with Christian charity. His first, most famous musing on this point came in June 2013 when he replied to right'wing critics of expanding Medicaid: Kasich continued: I had a conversation with one of the members of the legislature the other day. I said, I respect the fact that you believe in small government. I do, too. I also know that
The Hill [DC], by Katie Pavlich Posted By: StormCnter- Wed, 07 02 2015 09:02:53 GMT Within hours of the killings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week, President Obama stepped to the White House lectern, admittedly without all the facts of the case, to shamelessly politicize the tragedy. Somebody, somewhere will comment and say, Obama politicized this issue. Well, this is something we should politicize, he said. Perhaps Obamas open politicizing of the issue wasnt the worst part, but instead it was his intellectual dishonesty when it comes to the common'sense gun laws he wants implemented. Whats become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common'sense gun legislation. Right now, I
