  • Utah cop showed off explicit photos of sextortion victim who was later murdered

    A Utah cop kept explicit photos of a terrified college track star who was being sextorted by her ex — and showed them off to a colleague just days before the young athlete was murdered, according to his force and a damning report Sunday. University of Utah student Lauren McCluskey, 21, went to campus cops in October 2018 because she was so scared of her blackmailer — twisted ex Melvin Rowland, 37, a registered sex offender — she had already paid an initial $1,000 demand, the Salt Lake Tribune said. Officer Miguel Deras then saved the explicit images onto his...
  • Planned Parenthood’s 136 Celebrity Supporters Alienate Americans

    Planned Parenthood is harnessing star power in a new effort to advertise abortion. But with its straw-man messaging, Planned Parenthood and its celebrity PR team are only preaching to their choir. They’re not converting anyone. On August 26, Planned Parenthood announced that it had collected the signatures of nearly 140 musicians as part of its latest campaign for abortion called “Bans Off My Body.” To boast about its supporters, the nation’s largest abortion provider purchased an ad listing the artists – from Lady Gaga to Ariana Grande – in Billboard magazine. Planned Parenthood began its campaign in June in response...

    Anyone trying to understand why Donald Trump always has thought New Hampshire would be friendlier to him than Iowa should put aside the polls for a moment and focus on what each state's Republican voters are putting on their Spotify playlists. According to data for the week ending Feb. 1, Iowa Republicans can't stop listening to "This Is Amazing Grace" by Christian rocker Phil Wickham, which opens with the verse: "Who breaks the power of sin and darkness/Whose love is mighty and so much stronger/The King of Glory, the King above all kings." Republicans in New Hampshire, meanwhile, prefer "Idle...
  • Miguel Estrada: Justice lost key cases because Obama is a 'crazy client'

    The Justice Department had a losing average before the Supreme Court in the just-finished term because it was pushed to defend weak positions by a "crazy client," one-time U.S. Court of Appeals nominee Miguel Estrada said Monday. Summing up the term at a Federalist Society luncheon, Estrada, an assistant to the U.S. solicitor general from 1992-1997, slammed his former office for taking poor cases. "The office," he said, "did not do very well at the Supreme Court this year." Estrada, whose argued more than 20 cases before the Supreme Court, said the solicitor general´s office had a 12 win-15 loss

    <p>Since I go to Walter Reed frequently, I made an offer on the first thread of delivering cards and goodies directly to some patients if people so desired. Several kind people took me up on that offer, and the following is my description of my visits on 9 and 16 Dec. A friend, LandryFan, accompanied me on the second part of the good cheer tour, affectionately dubbed Operation Smother (as in smother ‘em with love) by yours truly.</p>

    It's beginning to look a lot like August 1988 By Howie Carr Recent Columns by Howie Carr Friday, August 20, 2004 John Kerry's August 2004 is beginning to look like Mike Dukakis' August 1988. Not a good month, in other words. It's probably too much to say that the wheels are coming off Kerry's campaign the way they did off his political mentor's 16 summers ago. He hasn't climbed into a tank yet, but isn't it odd that he reaches out to Mike McCurry almost 16 years to the day that Dukakis brought back a sleazemeister named John Sasso? Sixteen...

  • Liberals blamed the White House for Miguel Estrada failure to be confirmed (My Title)

    I give the liberals in the Senate a lot of credit. They win first prize for the greatest amount of gall displayed in the 108th Congress. Following the withdrawal of Miguel Estrada as an appeals court nominee, liberals blamed the White House for his failure to be confirmed. They led the filibuster to block Estrada's elevation to the bench and so - according to their way of thinking - it is the fault of the White House that he withdrew. The justification for this absurdity is as follows: Estrada worked in the Justice Department. The liberals on the Judiciary Committee...

    Miguel Estrada's surprise decision, announced today, to withdraw his name as a nominee for the federal court of appeals was not a surprise to those involved in the ongoing battle over President Bush's judicial nominations. "It's been long in coming," says one associate. Insiders say Estrada — whose nomination was stalled by an unprecedented filibuster by Senate Democrats — made his intentions known a few weeks ago but agreed not to go public until Congress returned from its August recess. Sources say Estrada was concerned about both his family and his career. For one thing, the nomination limbo had affected...

    Author's "Truth" More Fancy Than Fact Pablo Wegesend Recently, filmmaker and political satirist Michael Moore has been getting some publicity. His most recent book "Stupid White Men" has been on the New York Times bestseller list for a while and his latest film "Bowling for Columbine" has received great applause at the Cannes Film Festival recently. His earlier works include his book "Downsize This", films "Roger and Me" and "The Big One," and the canceled TV show "TV Nation." Some of you may not be familiar with Moore's work. Michael Moore isn't a mainstream star, but he is a...
