    A 47-year-old mystery finally may be resolved. Grand Rapids-based publisher Principia Media announced yesterday it has released a book that allegedly reveals the real identity of “D.B. Cooper,” the infamous skyjacker who in 1971 demanded a $200,000 ransom on board a flight from Portland, Oregon to Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport, before jumping 10,000 feet to his escape. The book, “D.B. Cooper & Me: A Criminal, A Spy, My Best Friend,” is by Carl Laurin, an alleged friend of the skyjacker, and details an investigation into Cooper’s identity. Laurin claims that Cooper was the late "military paratrooper, daredevil and intelligence operative" Walter R. Reca, Principia Media said. Reca,...
  • Maxine Waters explodes on House floor: I resent ‘making America great again’!

    05/11/2018 5:22:00 PM PDT · by chuckee · 68 replies
    California Congresswoman Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear any talk about making America great, especially if it’s coming from a straight white man. Waters went off the rails at a recent House debate when Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly had the audacity to suggest the country needed to shift focus from what divides to what unites. “We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking about discrimination and start talking about the nation,” Kelly said Tuesday, directing his comments to Waters. “We’re coming...

    Arizona Senator John McCain, who for nearly a year has been diagnosed with brain cancer, has reportedly said that he does not want U.S. President Donald Trump attending his funeral. Instead, McCain would like former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush reading his eulogy, NBC News said on Saturday based on a conversation with an unnamed source close to the 81-year-old politician. "I don't know how much longer I'll be here," McCain separately says in an audio clip shared by NPR ahead of the release of his memoir, The Restless Wave. Trump and McCain, who is a Vietnam war...

    A new poll shows that there was a significant uptick in support for President Trump among black males following tweets from hip-hop mogul Kanye West appearing to back the president. According to a Reuters poll taken April 29, 22 percent of black males approved of the president’s job performance, up from 11 percent one week earlier. Seven percent of the demographic also reported having “mixed feelings” about the president, up from 1.5 percent. Seventy-one percent of the cohort still said they disapproved of Mr. Trump’s performance in office. Support among black females remained relatively steady over that same span, increasing...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday claimed that being a “capitalist” hurt her in the 2016 primaries because so many Democrats are socialists. “It’s hard to know, but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist!’” Clinton said during a conversation with Alan Murray, the Chief Content Officer at Time Inc. Clinton barely defeated Sanders in the Iowa caucuses in...

    The target was reportedly an underground missile production facility and depot for surface-to-surface missiles. The explosions following the strike registered as a 2.6 magnitude earthquake, but the weapons used did not cause the quake. Over 18 people were killed and another 60 were wounded. The targets were Syrian army bases being used by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps and Shi'ite militias with troops from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Missiles also struck targets in the Al-Malikiyah area, north of the Aleppo’s airport. The underground missile production facility and depot for surface-to-surface missile is funded by Iran and built with the help...

The 2-1 decision Friday by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans is a victory for Republican lawmakers who've spent years defending what critics say is one of the toughest voter ID measures in the nation.

In response to this incident, Starbucks announced that they will close 8,000 stores for one day in May for an afternoon for race-bias training. Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on...

You look at what they’re campaigning on, and you have to ask, “How in the world do they really think this is gonna lead to massive, blue wave (quote-unquote) landslide victories?” ‘Cause it’s nothing but rage and hatred. It’s irrational. I’ll go through some of these things in a moment, but time is dwindling and I need...

    Instead of solving the problem of violence in their halls, Pennsylvania schools are becoming a national punchline. This week, one school district announced it will arm teachers with miniature 16-inch long baseball bats. Another district recently placed 5-gallon buckets of rocks in classrooms so students could defend themselves in the event of an attack.

    The real booster! Mark Zuckerberg sits tall on an inches-thick extra cushion for his Congressional testimony Mark Zuckerberg spent Tuesday afternoon being grilled by senators from the comfort of a black leather arm chair topped up with an extra inches-thick black cushion. The cushion-y boost under the 5'7 social media pioneer was nearly invisible, thanks to the color camouflaging. He sat on a dark wood and black leather armchair with brass nail head detailing - topped up with his very own inches-thick firm cushion which was fitted to the shape of the chair.

    In order to prevent the so-called caravan of 1500+ illegal immigrants from South America from entering the United States, President Trump announced on Tuesday that he’ll deploy the military to the US-Mexico border. The POTUS told reporters during a White House presser: “We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step. We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.” The comments made by President Trump in the video above hint at the current policies enforced by the United States, i.e. border agents are...

    Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Friday a bill imposing restrictions on gun sales and arming some teachers and school employees, a stark reversal of a two-decade push to ease gun regulations in Florida. The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit against the new law in federal court almost immediately after it was signed, contending the bill’s ban on gun sales to those under 21 was a violation of the Second Amendment.
