    Call Obama what he truly is: a hate-and-spite-inspired, jihadist sympathizing, Hillary Clinton-boosting Marxist monster For the sake of the hopeful security of your own loved ones, do not fall into the well-oiled trap that Obama is ďcrazyĒ or even plain ďnutsĒ. Never apply the word ďcrazyĒ to Obama unless it is followed by the words ďlike a foxĒ. If Obama were only off-his-meds type ďcrazyĒ, we could call for the men with the white coats and the butterfly nets.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) ó California prison officials must let transgender inmates have more female-oriented commissary items including nightgowns, robes, sandals, scarves and necklaces as part of a settlement that will make California the first state to pay for an inmateís sex reassignment surgery, a federal judge ruled Thursday. Aside from providing the surgery for 56-year-old Shiloh Quine, the state agreed in August to provide some items to transgender inmates such as Quine who are housed in menís prisons. The proposed policy doesnít go far enough, ruled U.S. Magistrate Judge Nandor Vadas. He said transgender inmates housed in menís prisons should have...

    Former president Bill Clinton praised Saddam Hussein's lieutenants and their underlings on Tuesday, saying they were mostly "good" and "decent" people." "When [the U.S.] kicked out Saddam, they decided to dismantle the whole authority structure," Clinton told an audience at American University in Dubai. "Most of the people who were part of that structure were good, decent people who were making the best out of a very bad situation," he added. While Clinton didn't name, names, Saddam's authority structure was dominated by his two murderous sons, Uday and Qusay, as well as notorious characters like Ali Hassan al-Majid, [aka Chemical...

    What in the hell is going on in this country with the politics? I just channel flipped across Fox, MSNBC, and CNN (9:30 am Mountain time). Fox had a panel blasting Trump for tweeting himself eating a taco bowl when he wants to deport all the illegals. Gee if I remember we still ate sauerkraut during WWII. And then one of the panel said there is no such thing as a taco bowl. I guess here in New Mexico I have to stop eating taco bowls because they do not exist.

    Over the last three months, Trump watchers have noticed that former House speaker and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has been consistently advocating on Trumpís behalf in the media, on Capitol Hill, among K Street power brokers, and on social media. In fact, Gingrich has morphed into Trumpís unofficial ambassador for GOP peace and unity, while also seeking converts in hostile territory. Gingrich is the most recognized and respected member of the GOP establishment who is defending the insurgent candidate ó even as Trump rails against that same establishment. But now, it has become apparent that Gingrich is waging...

    Since endorsing Ted Cruz, conservative commentator and media mogul Glenn Beck has used his platforms on radio and TV to spread the word ó that a Donald Trump presidency is not in God's plan. Beck and Trump have had a tense history throughout the campaign season, with Beck charging that Trump is not a real conservative and the billionaire maintaining that Beck is only hostile toward him because he rejected invitations to appear on Beck's show.

    Since October 2014, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has regularly referred to the concept of a "Mastermind" (ust akil, "supra-intellect," in Turkish) that, he says, is plotting against Turkey.

Erdogan's December 12, 2014 speech, which focused on this "mastermind" concept, inspired the production of a two-hour "documentary" by one of the leading Turkish television channels, the pro-AKP A Haber. The film, titled "The Mastermind," first aired on March 15, 2015 and has been broadcast repeatedly since then; in addition, the Turkish Islamist pro-AKP media are circulating the film on their...

    A feminist activist ran topless through St Peter's Square and rushed the nativity scene before attempting to flee with the baby Jesus figurine. The woman, who had the words 'God Is Woman' written on her chest, started her protest just one hour after Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message. Thousands of pilgrims were still standing in the famous square when the woman, who is a member of Femen, was ambushed by a guard on her way off the platform. She was quickly arrested by officers from the Vatican police.

Police said staff were immediately concerned, as the student, dressed in military fatigues, signed in to visit with a name unfamiliar to staff. The situation apparently grew heated when he was asked to leave and was ultimately escorted off the premises. Greenberg said the young man's sibling attends South Elementary...

According to the departmentís manual, ďthe immigration status of individuals alone is not a matter for police action. Ö Confidence in this commitment will increase the effectiveness of the Department in protecting and serving the community.Ē The city ordinance passed by a 5-2...
