  • 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. It was March of last year when Iftikhar Hussain and his wife were driving from Chicago to West Lafayette, Indiana. 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...

    Thanks to the Gary Sinise Foundation, retired Army Master Sgt. Cedric King and his wife and family have a new home. As reported on WSB-TV in Atlanta and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sgt. King was on his third deployment in Afghanistan in 2012 when stepped on a pressure plate improvised explosive device (IED) and lost both legs. "The house I live in right now, you have to understand, I bought it before I went to Afghanistan," King told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    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. Of course, the gun control movement was quick to blame weak gun laws (via KPNX): Indiana has the highest rate of black homicide victims in the country, according to a study conducted by the national nonprofit Violence Policy Center. 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...
  • America's Most Dangerous Cities (Still) Run By Democrats

    In 2012 the Daily Caller Ran this article http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/11/america%E2%80%99s-most-dangerous-cities-are-run-by-democrats/ which showed that 8 out of 10 of the most dangerous cities in America were run by democrats. (other 2 independents) So I looked into and found the current ten cities with the highest murder rates. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/top-lists/highest-murder-rate-cities/ And found the results are quite similar with at least 8 out of 10 of the most dangerous cities (ones with highest murder rates) still being run by democrats. 1 East St. Louis, IL (Emeka-Jackson Hicks,Democrat) 2 Camden, NJ (Donna Red, Democrat) 3 Gary, IN (Karen Freeman Wilson, Democrat) 4 Chester, PA (John A...

    Are you called Gary? Your name could soon be extinct as fewer parents are choosing to call their tot it. Despite a wealth of famous Garys in the world (Neville, Oldman, Barlow and Lineker, to name a few), the name is dying out. The name 'Gary' is less popular than it's ever been before. Records have revealed that the name is on its way to becoming extinct – despite being really popular in decades gone by. Since it originated in 1880, the name has been given to both boys and girls but is now becoming a rarity. Stats show that...

    In the small town of Lake Station, Ind., the news that the mayor, his wife and stepdaughter have been indicted on federal corruption charges this week came as little surprise. Residents in Lake Station, one of many working-class towns that fringe the northwest Indiana industrial centers of Gary and Hammond, have seen FBI agents leaving the town hall several times in recent years. On Thursday, Keith Soderquist and his wife and personal secretary, Deborah, were in federal court in Hammond to face charges of wire fraud and filing false tax returns, after allegedly using money from Soderquist’s campaign fund and...

    Demons Possess 3 Children in Real-Life Horror Story by Kiri Blakeley Do you believe in demonic possession? You just might after reading this story. 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 33-year-old woman told police she was on 25th Avenue in Gary driving her Chrysler 300 slowly because of potholes. She said a car behind her was following too closely, so she braked to get the car to back off. The braking apparently angered the other driver. The woman said the driver got...

    GARY, Ind. — As a tower of black smoke rose above this blighted city last week, a group of neighbors huddled across the street from a burning house, trying to guess which other vacant properties on their block would be arsonists’ next target. “There’s so many,” said Tasha McMiller, 50, a resident dismayed by the estimated 10,000 abandoned homes here. “They’re a burden.” Officials say that a third of the houses in Gary are unoccupied, hollowed dwellings spread across a city that, like other former industrial powerhouses, has lost more than half its population in the last half-century.

    Forbes put Detroit Mayor Dave Bing on its cover in 2011 for a story with the optimistic headline: “City of Hope.” The premise was that the city had hit rock bottom and was poised for a turnaround. “Right now, it’s all about survival,” Bing told Forbes. Two years later, Detroit’s problems continue to multiply, sadly. It is still dealing with high levels of violent crime and unemployment. Home prices, already at historic lows, plummeted a further 35% during the past three years to a median of $40,000 as net migration out of the city continued. The latest blow was Tuesday’s...

    GARY — A change of venue for the Gary Police Department’s second gun buyback of the year is expected to get even more firearms off the streets. Nine churches around the city will accept guns of all stripes, Gary Police Chief Wade Ingram told the Finance Committee when he came before it Wednesday asking for a $20,000 appropriation to fund the buyback. Residents will receive Wal-Mart gift cards in the amounts of $50 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $100 for assault weapons should the Common Council approve the ordinance at its Tuesday meeting. Many think criminals are the ones...

    GARY | The Gun Buyback hosted this past Saturday by the Gary Police Department is being called an “overwhelming success.” According to Police Chief Wade Ingram, a total of 129 guns were turned in in exchange for Wal-Mart gift cards. Local churches partnered with the GPD to serve as the turn-in locations. “The gun buyback program exceeded our expectations,” said Ingram. “I’d been told that previous turn-ins yielded less than 50 weapons, so we were happy to see that we went far beyond that number.”
