    Fox News reports that Huma Abedin is not on Hillary's campaign plane to Florida today. So where is she? Arrested? Getting out of the country? Heading for the nearest no-go zone?

    Arnold Palmer, a seven-time major winner who brought golf to the masses and became the most beloved figure in the game, died Sunday, a source close to the family confirmed to Golfweek. He was 87. Reaction poured in from “Arnie’s Army” of admirers in the world of golf. “We loved him with a mythic American joy,” said Palmer biographer James Dodson. “He represented everything that is great about golf. The friendship, the fellowship, the laughter, the impossibility of golf, the sudden rapture moment that brings you back, a moment that you never forget, that’s Arnold Palmer in spades. He’s the...

    National Review ^ | 9/20/16 | Conrad M Black
    While I have consistently dissented in this column and elsewhere from extreme versions of the anti-Trump barrage across the American and international media, he was not my first choice for the Republican nomination, and I have tried not to close the door prematurely on the election. The antics of the Democrats and their noisiest sympathizers in the last ten days have made any effort to retain a glimmer of hope that Mrs. Clinton might survive as election-worthy all the way to November 8 very challenging. Her reference to half of Donald Trump’s supporters as “deplorable” is now old news, but...

    It’s like a bad spy movie involving a third-world government. Or perhaps a slap stick comedy. The Secretary of State of the United States reading, sending, receiving sensitive emails with national security secrets, threats and classified or top secret intelligence over Google’s public Gmail. We expect this from chatting soccer moms but not from the top diplomat of the United States and her aides. But it gets even worse. The FBI either never discovered this blatant and clandestine violation of federal laws or did and simply covered it up. Following the Benghazi consulate attack in 2012, then Secretary of State...

    Congressional Record | July 1958 | Casey Stengel et. al.
    On July 9, 1958, hearings were held in Washington by the Subcommittee on Antitrust and Monopoly of the Committee of the Judiciary of the United States Senate. The Subcommittee was considering H.R. 10378 and S. 4070 to limit anti-trust laws so as to exempt professional baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Before them as an expert witness came Casey Stengel, whose verbal cuneiform has added the word "Stengelese" to our language. They say there was nothing like it, in all the history of Congressional hearings. TESTIMONY Senator Kefauver: Mr. Stengel, you are the manager of the New York Yankees. Will you...

    There will be a support the troops rally on the Capitol Campus (Tivolli Fountain) in Olympia WA (in the heart of the leftist beast) TODAY (Saturday, April 5th) from 3-5 PM.Participants are encouraged to bring flags and yellow ribbons. The wacko leftist Daily Olympian even put a little tiny blurb on page 3 announcing it! This is right in the heart of the enemy!

    Postmodern War U.S. Central Command, Baghdad, April 15, 2003 Secretary Rumsfeld: I will take your questions now. CBS: Mr. Secretary! Mr. Secretary! Aren't you worried about reports that Apache helicopters unnecessarily strafed hundreds of retreating Republican Guard battalions that were in essence trying to surrender? And the follow up, sir: Isn't it true that literally thousands of Republican Guard regiments were allowed to flee unmolested into Syria — and now amount to a potentially dangerous counterrevolutionary force right on the border of a liberated Iraq? NBC: Secretary Rumsfeld. In retrospect, was playing hardball with the Turks and not paying the...

    The Seattle Mariners just shut out the Texas Rangers 1-0 to reach 116 wins, tying the record for the most wins ever in a baseball season -- 116. The record they tied was set by Frank Chance's 1906 Chicago Cubs. We're pretty damn happy up here in the NW. I know it means nothing compared to all that is happening in the world and in America these days, but, you know, it's a pretty good diversion for us suffering Mariner's fans over the years. Congrats Mariners! Tomorrow we set the all-time record on the final day of the season. Oh. ...

    Can anyone believe that it's been only one week since Gore let loose with the DUI slimeball? It appears one week hasn't changed Gore a bit -- maybe he's even getting worse. Seems like a year has passed in that week.
