An FBI agent´s sniper rifle was ripped out of his car´s window and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot just days before President Obama visited Utah earlier this month. The gun was inside a hard rifle case and was ´secured properly´ to a truck safe with padlocks and chains while the car was parked at the Marriott Springhill Suites, according to police. Police believe the thief stole the rifle by breaking the rear right passenger-side window, tying a rope around the rifle case´s handle or a cable lock, and using the momentum from another vehicle to then



Obama Takes Cheap Shot at
FL Gov. Rick Scott During
Sparsely Attended Everglades Speech

President Barack Obama could not resist taking a cheap shot at Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) while he was visiting the governor’s state Wednesday afternoon. The thinly veiled insult came during the president’s speech at the Florida Everglades, which only a small handful of Floridians attended. The speech was televised by Al Jazeera America but none of the major cable news networks, according to Mediaite. As the president made his case for taking action on climate change, he scoffed at one denier in particular who supposedly refuses to even allow the words “climate change” to be said in his state.

President Obama’s amnesty by edict has always been about adding new Democrats to the voter rolls, and recent action by the Department of Homeland Security provides further proof. Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources away from a computer system — the “Electronic Immigration System” — to sending letters to all 9,000,000 green card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election. This effort is part of the DHS “Task Force on New Americans.” PJ Media has obtained an internal

Reporters tried to get the G-word out of the administration today on the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, but both the White House and State Department went through every verbal dance possible to not anger Turkey. President Obama edited the word Ankara hates out of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, issuing a lengthy statement marking “Armenian Remembrance Day.” He promised as a presidential candidate in 2008 to recognize the Armenian Genocide once in the Oval Office, but has never done so.(Snip)At the State Department today, Marie Harf got exasperated with questions about the Armenian Genocide. “You’ve asked the same question

Some continents have more languages than others(skip for graph)Not all continents are equally diverse in the number of spoken languages. Whereas Asia leads the statistics with 2,301 languages, Africa follows closely with 2,138. There are about 1,300 languages in the Pacific, and 1,064 in South and North America. Europe, despite its many nation-states, is at the bottom of the pack with just 286. 2. These are some of the languages with the most native speakers

You might as well make yourselves comfortable. That’s advice Republican presidential candidates might want to follow, given how often they will be summoned to Iowa over the next nine months or so to explain themselves to the state´s notoriously demanding voters. This weekend, they´ll be turning up to prove their evangelical fervor at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, part of the national organization created by Ralph Reed in 2009, after his fall from grace as head of the Christian Coalition. Reed has sufficiently rehabilitated himself to have some status as a Republican power broker. So the party´s candidates and would-be

The first attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress has demonstrated shocking contempt for the law, and the ability to abuse and corrupt it for the political and social agenda of this president. He has assaulted freedom of speech and press at every turn, stonewalled all investigations into widespread corruption within the administration, undermined and obstructed the work of the agencies’ own inspectors general, and targeted individuals who dared challenge any of it. He has tirelessly protected and promoted corrupt prosecutors and scattered ticking time bombs. Ironically, it was April 1, 2009, when newly sworn

In 1994, Lindsey Graham, then a 39-year-old South Carolina legislator, ran for Congress in a district that he said had not elected a Republican since Union guns made it do so during Reconstruction. He promised that in Washington he would be “one less vote for an agenda that makes you want to throw up.” He was elected to the Senate in 2002 and soon almost certainly will join the Republican presidential scramble, enlivening it with his quick intelligence, policy fluency, mordant wit and provocative agenda. He has the normal senatorial tendency to see a president in the mirror and an ebullient

Beirut, Lebanon - Insurgents seized more parts of the northern Syrian province of Idlib on Saturday in a significant advance toward the government-held coast that seemed to signal new coordination among antigovernment fighters, some using advanced antitank weapons. (Snip) Last year, the United States provided a small number of TOW antitank missiles to some rebel groups. But those groups were largely routed or co-opted by the Nusra Front, further complicating what was already a murky battlefield that has left American officials wary of providing more robust aid to insurgents. Now, though, some opposition advocates

Re-branding Clinton Inc: ´New Hillary´

Washington - Modern US presidential campaigns are first and foremost exercises in personal branding, where voters are asked to buy into a vision of America´s future embodied in a candidate´s personal story and public image. In the end, says one longtime Democrat strategist, it´s a "gut" thing – which is why this past week has been a particularly scarring one for Hillary Clinton. (Snip) Unfortunately for Mrs Clinton, unlike in the world of savings plans and soap powder, in presidential politics the rival concerns get to fire back, and this week Republicans began the process of pre-emptively destroying the New Clinton brand.

White House Press Corps:
Obama Doesn’t Like Us

A whopping 78 percent of White House reporters who participated in a Politico survey say President Obama doesn’t like them, and about the same percent think Michelle Obama doesn’t like them either. The results suggest the press corps perception of itself is vastly different than that held by many Americans – particularly conservatives – who perceive a cozy, mutually nurturing relationship between press and president. The poll was conducted mainly on background, with reporters not having to attach their names to the answers for publication. Of 65 reporters who answered the question, 51 said Obama “dislikes the press.”

Thirteen years after a jury convicted Andrea Yates of capital murder for drowning her five children in the bathtub, her ex-husband says putting her on trial was an act of cruelty.

Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, is to adapt one of his favourite romantic novels about the love story between a penniless girl and an aristocrat for a new ITV period drama. Doctor Thorne, by Anthony Trollope, is the story of Dr Thomas Thorne, who lives in the village of Greshamsbury in Barsetshire, with his beautiful niece, Mary, a girl blessed with every gift except money. Mary has grown up alongside the Gresham sisters – Augusta, Beatrice and Alexandrina and their handsome brother Frank – whose home is the great house and estate at Greshamsbury Park.

Last month, we are told, the world enjoyed “its hottest March since records began in 1880”. This year, according to “US government scientists”, already bids to outrank 2014 as “the hottest ever”. (Snip) But here there is a puzzle. These temperature records are not the only ones with official status. The other two, Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) and the University of Alabama (UAH), are based on a quite different method of measuring temperature data, by satellites. And these, as they have increasingly done in recent years, give a strikingly different picture. Neither shows last month as anything anything like the hottest March on

The Florida Republican will be in Iowa this weekend on his first trip to the state since he announced his 2016 presidential candidacy. Rubio´s appearance at a candidate forum in suburban Des Moines on Saturday will be an introduction to many voters, who have not seen Rubio as much as many of his competitors this year.

A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe. NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months


Five Questions About the

The Times has reported that people involved in a series of Canadian uranium-mining deals channelled money to the Clinton Foundation while the firm had business before the State Department. And, in one case, a Russian investment bank connected to the deals paid money to Bill Clinton personally, through a half-million-dollar speaker’s fee. There were a number of transactions involved, and corporate name changes, but, basically, a Canadian company known as Uranium One initially wanted American diplomats to defend its Kazakh uranium interests when a Russian firm, Rosatom, seemed about to make a move on them; and then,

The financial issues plaguing Hillary Rodham Clinton´s campaign have become too much even for liberal groups, and now Common Cause is calling for an independent audit of donations to the Clinton Foundation. Amid suggestions that foreign governments donated to the foundation in hopes of getting special treatment from President Obama´s State Department when Clinton was his top diplomat, the group on Friday said a "thorough review" is needed. "Six years ago, at Mrs. Clinton´s confirmation hearing for her appointment as secretary of state, then-Sen.

A crowdfunding campaign that had raised more than $109,000 for the Christian-owned bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon was removed Saturday after complaints from gay-rights advocates. The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.” “The campaign entitled ‘Sweet Cakes by Melissa‘ involves formal charges. As such, our team has determined that it was in violation of GoFundMe’s Terms & Conditions,” said GoFundMe in

A powerful earthquake that rocked Nepal on Saturday unleashed a massive avalanche on Mount Everest that slammed into base camp and sent hundreds of climbers running for their lives, according to news reports. At least 10 climbers and guides were killed by the avalanche, which reportedly buried some portions of the camp while missing others, leaving unknown numbers of people injured and missing, according to the Associated Press. “The toll could go up, it may include foreigners as well as Sherpas,” Gyanendra Shrestha, an official from the Nepal tourist board, told the Telegraph.
