CALAIS, Maine— A young man who was drinking and celebrating the Fourth of July tried to launch a firework off the top of his head, fatally injuring himself, authorities said Sunday. Devon Staples and his friends had been drinking and setting off fireworks Saturday night in the backyard of a friend´s home in the small eastern Maine city of Calais, said Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety. Staples, 22, of Calais, placed a fireworks mortar tube on his head and set it off, he said. The firework exploded, killing Staples instantly, McCausland said. His death

Ted Cruz´s presidential campaign has raised just over $14.2 million since announcing in mid-March, and its allied super PAC claims it has raised $37 million -- bringing the Texas Republican´s haul to a hefty $51.2 million. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said the campaign raised about $10 million in the second fundraising quarter of 2015, which ended June 30. The campaign raked in $4.3 million during the first fundraising quarter, which ended eight days after Cruz announced he is running for president, on March 23. Cruz´s super PAC said it has raised $37 million, according to CNN.

CNN’s “State of the Union” panel ripped former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign Sunday one day after staffers corralled the press behind a rope as Clinton walked in a Fourth of July parade in New Hampshire. The panel consisting of CNN contributors S.E. Cupp and Van Jones, The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee, and CNN political reporter Jeff Zeleny roasted Clinton’s rope line, with Jones calling it “the worst visual metaphor” for her campaign. “This is humiliating for reporters who have to abide by Hillary Clinton’s rules of journalism,” Cupp told host Jake Tapper. “And it’s not

The unpiloted spacecraft´s docking mechanism engaged its counterpart in the station´s Earth-facing Pirs compartment at 3:11 a.m. EDT (GMT-4), two days after launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

You might expect the usual disputes over crowd size when a leftist group calls a “million man person march.” Usually these feature aerial photos and arguments over how many individuals are crowded how densely into a certain amount of space. But with the “million person march” that promised ‘the flag will come down,” called by Operation Ferguson yesterday in Columbia, SC, this was not a problem. The only photo available of the event shows three people, all of them onstage. (Photo) The great Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit spotted the utter flop. After waiting and waiting and waiting for photos:

San Francisco – A “Sanctuary

A San Francisco article gives some insight into how the decision to make a “sanctuary city”, has now made them a safe harbor for illegal alien criminals, murderers and rapists. Alternate headline: “Donald Trump Is Right”.CALIFORNIA – With the awful, senseless shooting of Kate Steinle, and the arrest of an undocumented immigrant who was convicted of seven felonies and deported five times, people are asking questions about San Francisco’s wrong-headed and dangerous Sanctuary City policy.

The shooting of Walter Scott by Police Officer Slager was immediately broadcast to the world. Unfortunately, like many of those previous broadcasts, the narrative transmitted was fraught with manipulation and agenda. The Scott family brought in Ryan Julison to direct the media and tell a story. A very specific story. Now, the attorney for Officer Slager has to begin a careful and deliberate process of bringing truthful sunlight upon the shooting.SOUTH CAROLINA – Private investigators for the former North Charleston policeman jailed in Walter Scott’s death found two bullets that had been missed by state agents who examined

It is surprising to some that there is anything natural remaining in 21st-century New York City. Surely, what the earliest Americans didn’t hunt to extinction, European settlers finished off — after all, the city was founded almost 400 years ago. But to any New Yorker willing to look for it, nature is visible around the clock. In fact, it can be incredibly durable and persistent — even downright hard to extinguish — as it emerges from cracked sidewalks, makes its home on balconies, flies out of trees when we least expect it or slowly lumbers across high-density, rush-hour highways. Nature in the city alights on neon signs,

Who wants a race war?

A lunatic in Charleston, South Carolina, tried to start a race war a few weeks ago. He entered a black church, sat and watched for an hour as the congregation welcomed him into their worship and then murdered as many as he could. As nine laid dead or dying, he fled like vermin. The nation was stunned. The police apprehended the killer. The killer confessed. The people of Charleston wept. The killer’s diary revealed that he had no friends and no allies. He bemoaned the fact that even with the Internet, he could not find anyone — not a single person — to join him. This lone loser failed to provoke that race war.

Racism and slavery are part of the national conversation once again. Remarkably, this conversation tends to overlook the Declaration of Independence. Nixed from Thomas Jefferson´s first draft of the Declaration was a paragraph accusing King George III of "waging war against human nature itself, violating it´s (sic) most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people, who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere...." Jefferson had to know, as John Adams did, that other Southern delegates would strike that paragraph. He also had to know that the paragraph

AP Calls Crippled Economy
‘Healthy’ Amid Mass Immigration
Breitbart Big Journalism, by Katie McHugh    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/5/2015 10:24:09 AM     Post Reply
In a grim report detailing America’s severe economic decline, the Associated Press brushes off two crucial factors: Mass immigration and Obamacare’s grip on employers. Pay is sluggish. Many part-timers can’t find full-time work. And a diminished share of Americans either have a job or are looking for one. Yet in the face of global and demographic shifts, this may be what a nearly healthy U.S. job market now looks like. An aging population is sending an outsize proportion of Americans into retirement. Many younger adults, bruised by the Great Recession, are postponing work to remain in school to try to become more marketable.

The senseless, random murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle last week, allegedly by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, has shocked the city of San Francisco and outraged the nation. The alleged murderer was free because of a local policy and state law that prevent cooperation with federal immigration detainers—and because of a federal government that encourages such disobedience. Though only Lopez-Sanchez will face a court, Governor Jerry Brown, Attorney General Kamala Harris, and President Barack Obama must share the blame, along with local officials. Lopez-Sanchez, who had been deported to Mexico five times and

Suddenly everybody’s talking about Joe Biden. That itself is a phenomenon. The nation’s first vice president, John Adams, described the job in a letter to his wife as “the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived,” and indeed he did little in it. Its later occupants — and here the names Daniel D. Tompkins, Richard Mentor Johnson, Henry Wilson and Charles W. Fairbanks come to mind only if you’re playing a particularly difficult trivia contest — have faded into the mists of history, forgettable and forgotten. But in recent years vice presidents have become important

Trying to create a presidential persona and a rationale for running, Hillary Clinton relaunched her campaign at a memorial to FDR. She used the glorious setting of Four Freedoms Park to summon Roosevelt’s legacy and frame her theme as “Four Fights.” (Snip) The news that Sanders is surging in polls in Iowa and New Hampshire must be sending shivers through Clinton’s camp. Even though Hillary still leads in the 2016 first states, the gap has narrowed so much that her surrogates are lowering expectations, saying Sanders might win some showdowns. That’s amazing enough, but her problem could be even more serious.

The Myth of Big, Bad Gluten
New York Times, by Moises Velasquez-Manoff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/5/2015 8:20:16 AM     Post Reply
AS many as one in three Americans tries to avoid gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten-free menus, gluten-free labels and gluten-free guests at summer dinners have proliferated. Some of the anti-glutenists argue that we haven’t eaten wheat for long enough to adapt to it as a species. Agriculture began just 12,000 years ago, not enough time for our bodies, which evolved over millions of years, primarily in Africa, to adjust. According to this theory, we’re intrinsically hunter-gatherers, not bread-eaters. If exposed to gluten, some of us will develop celiac disease or gluten intolerance, or we’ll simply feel lousy.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — At most NASCAR races, it´s usually the checkered flag that spectators like to keep their eyes on. But following recent events, there´s another flag that has become the topic of sometimes heated conversation. "It´s not a racial thing. It´s a heritage thing," said Chris Harrison of Jacksonville. Harrison spoke to First Coast News on Saturday from the in-field at Daytona International Speedway. The iconic track is hosting thousands of people for Sunday´s Coke Zero 400.

Dr. Michael Kaplan looked across his desk at a woman who had sought out his Long Island Weight Loss Institute and asked the question he often poses to new patients: “Where do you think you go wrong with food?” The 38-year-old patient was about 20 pounds overweight and, as she described it, desperate.

Like many others, I initially found myself doubtful that Donald Trump was going to actually mount a campaign. Now however, I’m increasingly and cautiously -even happily- optimistic he does actually intend to win the nomination. However, it’s going to take a huge amount of support from the body electorate to help Trump withstand what is in front of him. Trump is the absolute nightmare of modern liberalism. In many ways his unabashed and unapologetic free market capitalism is the antithesis of everything progressives hate, and we do mean HATE. However, in addition to the easily predictable supernova of hatred from
