    Parachute used by mystery hijacker to escape aircraft after stealing $200,000 goes on display for the first time It's one of America's most enduring crime mysteries, baffling authorities for more than 40 years. In 1971, a man who identified himself as Dan Cooper boarded Northwest Orient Flight 305 from Portland, Oregon, to Seattle. FBI investigators have always argued that Cooper did not survive his risky jump, while at the same time maintaining an active case file. The mysterious hijacking has intrigued everyone from federal agents to amateur sleuths. After getting on the plane, he ordered a whiskey and lit a...

    MENA, Ark. -- An Arkansas man hopes to auction off some frayed $20 bills that he says could bring him thousands of dollars. Brian Ingram, 34, a Mena carpenter, says he was the boy on a family outing 15 years ago in Washington state who found money stolen by legendary hijacker D.B. Cooper, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Sunday. Cooper hijacked a Northwest Orient Airlines flight from Portland, Ore., in 1971, and parachuted out with $200,000 in ransom money. His fate remains unknown. Ingram says he has 17 of the bills plus torn pieces and is working with an attorney to...
  • Oh My: Hillary Now Trails Six Different Republicans in New National Poll

    Happy Thanksgiving week, conservatives: Screen grab Poll: At least 7 GOP candidates beat or tie @HillaryClinton if race held today. @SundayFutures Fox News (@FoxNews) November 22, 2015 Rubio's up eight, Jeb's up six, Trump and Carson are up five, Cruz is up four, and Christie's up three. Fiorina is tied with Hillary, at 42 percent apiece. The sample is R+1 -- perhaps a bit generous -- but Hillary's fundamentals remain terrible, including a dead-last (38/58) 'honest and trustworthy' score among the field.  And it's entirely plausible that more Americans are identifying as Republicans in the wake of the Paris attacks, especially...

    The first stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution is "to form a more perfect Union." Allowing immigrants into this country when their religion/political ideology is completely hostile to, and incompatible with, the principles upon which American republican self-government is premised makes that first stated purpose totally impossible of fulfillment. As has been stated, correctly, so many times, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

Here is his final statement: So while Carson probably won’t and likely shouldn’t be the nominee, the Republican party is better for his candidacy. And if...

The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clintons sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child. Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants, a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News.

    A federal judge ruled against an Arkansas Courthouse Thursday in a suit over a nativity scene on public property.U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks said Baxter County must either remove the nativity or “create a public forum on the courthouse grounds for a seasonal display open to persons of all faiths as well as of no faith at all, without discrimination on the basis of viewpoint.”The lawsuit began when the American Humanist Association filed suit in December of 2014. A private resident had put the nativity on the public property, but locals in 2013 had been denied when they asked to...

    Hillary Clinton failed to provide proper security to the US Consular facility in Benghazi, Libya before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 and she failed to secure any rescue operations for the four Americans who eventually died there. Recently released watch logs from the State Department operations center show she made no official inquiries from 10:30 p.m. that night through 7:15 a.m. the following morning. That is a long time to be missing when a U.S. diplomatic facility is under attack. Why was no rescue effort mounted? That is the question that has been driving good people crazy since this...
  • Report: FBI Escalates 'Full Blown Investigation' Into Hillary's Unsecure Email Server

    Hillary Clinton's top Democratic "rival" may believe that people are sick of hearing about her "damn emails," but that pronouncement -- since walked back, as its issuer fades in the polls -- evidently does not apply to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Politico reports that the bureau's probe into Clinton's improper, unsecure email scheme has been ramping up, not petering out: Even as Hillary Clinton tries to put questions about her private email server behind her, the FBI has stepped up inquiries into the security of the former Secretary of State's home-made email system, and how aides communicated over email,...

    Hillary Clinton failed to admonish an audience member on Tuesday who said he wanted to 'strangle' Republican primary candidate Carly Fiorina. The audience member said he was a systems engineer who was laid off from Hewlett-Packard while Fiorina was CEO of the company. He critiqued decisions made by Fiorina to fire workers and said he becomes infuriated whenever he sees her trumpeting her business record on television.
  • WaPo: Three Pinocchios to Hillary over claim of 90-95% State Dept e-mail retention

    This is actually one of the least substantive points made by defenders of Hillary Clinton in the e-mail scandal, but Glenn Kessler's fact check makes a couple of important points. The media has often repeated the claim by Hillary and her team that the State Department has estimated that it could have found 90-95% of her e-mails by checking the server for those cc'd on the messages. Not only is that Hillary's estimation and not State's, it's demonstrably false in any case: First of all, the State Department is correct. The "90 to 95 percent" figure comes from the Clinton...

    Where there is a Clinton, there is always a whiff of a scandal, and if former President Bill Clinton is involved, it is a sex scandal. In a recent deposition testimony former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said he cannot rule out that the former president was not involved in the underage sex orgies sponsored by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein at his private island home. This is according to a news report published on Oct. 29, 2015 by Rader Online, while Dershowitz gave his deposition on Oct. 16. Dershowitz finally gave his deposition in a defamation lawsuit brought about...

    Hillary Clinton on Saturday called for looser federal regulations governing marijuana, to boost scientific research on a drug that many tout for relieving pain, among other medical benefits, according to media reports. Speaking at a campaign event in Orangeburg, South Carolina, the Democratic presidential candidate said changing U.S. rules would acknowledge the drug's potential for medical uses and give scientists access to the drug for further investigation. "Universities, (the) National Institutes of Health can start researching what is the best way to use it, how much of a dose does somebody need, how does it interact with other medications," Clinton...

    Joy Pullmann, a nationally-recognized education expert, claims that "normal people in fly-over country" feel exploited by cultural and political elites who have moved from not listening to the people, to exploiting them. What worries the education expert - who is now the managing editor of The Federalist - the most about a Hillary Clinton presidency is "the distaste factor" stemming from the former secretary of state raising her child with nannies. According to Pullmann, Hillary is "so out of touch" with so little to share with parents. Pullmann continues in the exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation by...
