    The sound of a gunshot crackled through miles of soon-to-be combined land, bringing one pheasant to the ground in a single plop. Carol Bothe and her crew spent the opening day of pheasant season pushing through fields, waiting for the perfect shot. Bothe, of Brandon, is part of a growing female segment of small game hunting license holders.

    The United States of America is in mortal jeopardy and most Americans, tucked away in their beds tonight don’t even understand why or who is responsible for their peril. Those responsible are not from North Korea, China, Iran, Russia or ISIS. They are Department of Defense bureaucrats, members of Congress and senior leaders in the US military. The US military is committing suicide. We are in the first stages of beginning a process that is going to decimate the speed, lethality and combat power of the Marines and the US Army combat arms and special operations.

    WASHINGTON – The tip of the spear may be losing its edge. Navy SEAL teams don't have enough combat rifles to go around, even as these highly trained forces are relied on more than ever to carry out counterterrorism operations and other secretive missions, according to SEALs who have confided in Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif. After SEALs return from a deployment, their rifles are given to other commandos who are shipping out, said Hunter, a former Marine who served three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. This weapons carousel undercuts the "train like you fight" ethos of the U.S. special...

Shocked and suspicious, Sanders announced that he was armed and started filming the bizarre encounter, which took place on October 2. He soon figured out the confused twenty-something had attended the electronic dance festival TomorrowWorld, which was set on a 500-acre property not far away, but had finished four days earlier.

    It was billed to be an explosive tell-all about what 'really happened' during the affair that ended a marriage and the dreams of the man who was being pipped to be the next U.S. president. But after all the hype, it seems not that many people really wanted to hear Rielle Hunter's side of the story, as the book about her relationship with former senator John Edwards has sold just 6,000 copies. Due to poor sales, Hunter seems to have dropped under the radar and scheduled no additional tour dates despite an initial media blitz.

    Jobless Stats Reveal Disparities As economy Starts To Recover March 09, 2012 While the Labor Department reports a surge in private-sector hiring and the nation's unemployment rate holding steady at 8.3 percent, a closer look at the numbers paints a less flattering picture of the country's post-recession growth. The latest report for February shows lingering economic disparities among different segments of the population. And, as has been the case for decades, the unemployment rate used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not tell the whole story. Counting only those Americans who are actively looking for work, the jobless rate...

    Hunter, the debut novel from investigative journalist and Big Government contributor Robert Bidinotto, is the latest indie/self-published book to enjoy widespread, commercial success. It’s been a best seller on Amazon for a while now and received great reviews from readers. I picked up a copy at the recommendation of a friend. Hunter did not disappointed. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ma sucker for revenge stories, ranging from The Count of Monte Cristo to Payback to Taken to High Plains Drifter. Revenge themes make great thrillers and Hunter is no exception. Without giving away too much, Hunter involves an unknown...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whom some pundits had written off as the GOP's nominee, may find a second coming in Iowa, if new poll data holds up. As Mitt Romney's campaign has suffered a startling decline in recent weeks, only to see Newt Gingrich eclipse the former Massachusetts governor's front-runner status, the battle for the Iowa caucuses set for Jan. 3 has become a wide-open race. New survey data prepared for the Perry campaign and shared by a source close within the campaign shows that the Texas governor may be poised to do much better in next month’s Iowa caucuses...

    Lon Feia didn't know how big a black bear he had until he saw the carcass. He knew there were bears on his property, which borders Willow River State Park in the town of Hudson, Wis., and started setting out bait in July. Soon he began getting "hits." "Then, finally, on Aug. 24, he started coming in," Feia said. "And in pretty short order he claimed the bait, so (all the other bears) went away." It was the evening of Oct. 9 when Feia took a shot that brought down the bear - an animal that measured 7 feet, 2...

    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...

    Edwards' mistress files motion in sex tape caseBy The associated Press Published: July 22, 2011 HILLSBOROUGH - Attorneys for John Edwards' former mistress have filed a motion charging contempt of court against a former campaign aide and his wife, saying the couple provided off-limits information to federal prosecutors pursuing criminal charges against Edwards. Citing a hearing in a Greensboro courtroom last week in a separate criminal case involving Edwards, Rielle Hunter's attorneys contend that Andrew and Cheri Young or their legal team have turned over thousands of pages of material from her lawsuit against them. Further, they say Hunter was...
