  • Hal Boyd: Gary Johnson says Mitt Romney would be 'guaranteed' a spot in his administration

    08/22/2016 7:40:28 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 27 replies
    On Friday, former Gov. Gary Johnson offered a guarantee. “If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee.” The comments came at Friday’s joint Deseret News-KSL editorial board meeting with Johnson and Bill Weld. I asked Johnson what role, if any, Romney might play in a Johnson-Weld administration. Although the Libertarian nominee seemed to doubt whether Romney would really be interested, he said the former Republican presidential nominee would be free to, in essence, choose his own adventure. “I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide … and I say...
  • ‘Never Gary Johnson’: He’s Not Conservative and Not Even All That Libertarian

    National Review ^ | May 23, 2016 4:00 AM | by JAMES SPILLER
    The assumption is that someone whose label is “Libertarian” has libertarian values and would promote them in office. In the case of Johnson, that notion is absurd. When Johnson took the tiller in New Mexico in 1995, the budget stood at $4.397 billion. When he left in 2003, it had grown to $7.721, an increase of 7.29 percent a year. Of the eleven governors who filed to run for president this year (two Democrats, Johnson, and eight Republicans), only one had a worse record on spending growth.... On civil liberties as with fiscal issues, Johnson’s record is less libertarian than...

    (CBS) — A Chicago man is suing the state of Indiana and its road building contractors blaming them for a fiery accident on the Cline Avenue Bridge that killed his wife 14 months ago.

Hussain’s attorney Timothy Schafer says the couple took the Indiana Toll Road and then the Cline Avenue exit, following the GPS in their Nissan Sentra. Schafer says even though the road was closed because the bridge ahead was demolished, the barricades had been removed and the...

    The Hoosier State may have some prominent sports franchises and the Indy 500, but it also has been declared as the state with the highest rate of black homicides.

The study uses FBI homicide data to rank states according to their black homicide victimization rates. According to the study, there were 213 black homicide victims in Indiana in 2013, or 34.15...

Three children in Indiana were supposedly possessed by demons. They did all of the usual stuff -- growled, rolled their eyes back in their heads, threatened people. One even managed to slide backwards up a wall and flip over. Another levitated. The difference between this demonic possession case and the usual ones is that there were plenty of witnesses to the demons' shenanigans -- and not just the family and a bunch of overexcited Holy Rollers....

The Dems have done this before, in St. Louis during the 2000 presidential election, and a fe years back in King County (Seattle) during the WA state governor's election. Sorry, but this stuff makes me nervous.

    The biggest gamble in the short life of satellite radio hits the table at 6 a.m. today, as Howard Stern starts what he calls his creative rebirth at Sirius. The most prominent morning host on commercial radio for 20 years, Stern joined Sirius because he says the FCC's vague content guidelines made it impossible for him to do his "real show" any more. Because satellite listeners pay a monthly subscription fee, like cable TV watchers, the FCC does not regulate content - though Stern's arrival has amplified calls for such regulation to be authorized.

    As a group of residents cheered, a Glen Park man tackled Gary Patrolman Carl Cochran, choking the officer and threatening to kill him in an unprovoked attack Wednesday night, Lt. Roger Smith said. Cochran, a five-year veteran and member of the department’s elite S.W.A.T. team, suffered cuts to his face and injuries to his arm and back as a result of the protracted struggle with Kelvin D. Banks, 40. Cmdr. Jerome Krebes said Thursday he ordered additional patrols in the area in response to the incident. A small group of people — ten or less — surrounded the officer during...

    You Gotta Have Hartby Daniel Sargis16 April 2004Gary Hart, who was appointed to co-chair the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century in 1998 by then-president Clinton, has decided to skipper himself into the shenanigans of the 9-11 Commission.   You might think that ex-senator Gary Hart would want to sit out the latest D.C. Monkey Business.  But, just like his bloated ego previously exposed him (“'follow me around . . . it will be boring”)...he’s at it again.  Some people don’t have the sense to know when to keep their zippers up and their mouths shut.  Too bad Hart...

    GARY, Ind. (AP) — This northern Indiana city appeared to finish 2003 with the nation's highest per capita homicide rate for the ninth straight year, according to police statistics. Police in Gary, population 103,000, investigated 69 suspicious deaths, 68 of which have been classified as homicides. That total was about 10 percent higher than the 62 in 2002, but down substantially from the 132 people killed in 1995, the Post-Tribune of Merrillville reported Friday. Based on information from police in major U.S. cities, Gary was poised again to post the highest per capita homicide rate for cities with population of...

    ARY, Ind., Nov. 26 — This city, with its sputtering smokestacks that line Lake Michigan and its shuttered, boarded, barred downtown, has tried everything to save itself — a theme park, a beauty pageant, murals, baseball, basketball, gambling.Then this summer, the city's most famous son came home for the first time in forever, stopping by his childhood house, which was not that much bigger than the black limousine he rode up in.He had an idea to help his struggling hometown build a performing arts center, where actors, dancers and musicians would draw paying crowds and where students would perfect their...
