    A staffer for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) admitted to distributing methamphetamine and another drug in exchange for sexual favors, according to a report in The Washington Post. Customs and Border Patrol officers in Cincinnati found a package of gamma-Butyrolactone (GBL) addressed to Fred Wesley Pagan, according to a court document. Homeland Security agents searched his house in the Brightwood neighborhood of Washington D.C., on Thursday and found a substance that tested positive for meth in plastic bags, the court document states. The Post reports Pagan is a long-time employee of Cochran and currently serves as his office manager. Pagan allegedly...

    Five years ago this week, a blowout of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig 40 miles from the Gulf Coast tragically claimed eleven lives and spilled 3 million barrels of oil from the damaged wellhead into the Gulf. It’s hard to forget the video images of thick oil gushing, day after day, into the region’s waters. It was a horrific accident that caused substantial damage to the ecology and commerce of the region. Gulf-area wildlife, portions of the shoreline, tourism, fishers and shrimpers, and energy-sector workers suffered large losses in the aftermath of the spill. BP has paid close to $27...

    Gov. Phil Bryant late Thursday afternoon ended any suspense over whether his signature would go on a Common Core bill supporters said was designed to kill use of the education standards in Mississippi.

He wants it dead and pledged to continuing seeking its demise.

    Two of the countrys most powerful and politically influential labor unions are backing President Obama in the recent court challenge to his 2014 executive action on illegal immigration, saying they support the presidents effort because "undocumented workers" need more workplace protection and their participation helps the U.S. economy. The AFL-CIO and the National Education Association on Monday each filed so-called amicus briefs in a federal appeals court case in which Texas and 26 other states are challenges the presidents 2014 memorandum on illegal immigration. The memorandum essentially expands work authorization and delayed-deportation programs for illegal immigrants. And it provides similar...

The sheriff's office in Claiborne County, Mississippi had organized a search for the man, who had been missing since March 2 and reported missing March 8. Authorities found the body hanging from a tree in the woods behind the residence where he had been living. It is unclear if it is a suicide, or if the man was killed by someone.

She is a 94 year-old woman who was murdered in Meridian, Mississippi on March 1. Based on the complete lack of press coverage outside of the immediate area, it's reasonable to believe that the nation's journalists don't think, in the popular parlance, that "her life mattered" all that much.

    Last week, Jeb Bush was in New Hampshire, pressing on with his sordid campaign to delude conservatives into swallowing Common Core and massive, unfettered immigration policies. He has fashioned himself a champion of the American worker, even as he pompously pushes Gang of Eight amnesty as the adult plan in the room. And he has fashioned himself a champion of school choice, even as he zealously crusades for failed Fed Ed rackets and data-mining schemes masquerading as higher standards. The condescending Bush attitude is familiar to grass-roots activists and parents in Florida and across the country who have fought Club...

That amount is surging rapidly; in 2012, the total was just $394 billion, meaning that pension debt is growing by over $50 billion a year.Some states are in a particularly huge hole....

They were initially suspected in at least one carjacking, but police suspected they were involved in the January 7 incident on Euclid Street when Temple was robbed and shot. She died of her injuries Monday night.

    After oral arguments about Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas bans on marriages for same-sex couples, the 5th Circuit of Appeals looks likely to strike the laws down. NEW ORLEANS After three hours of arguments, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals appeared poised to strike down bans on same-sex couples marriages in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas joining all but one of the other appellate courts to consider the issue. If the court upholds the lower court decisions striking down the Mississippi and Texas bans and reverses the trial court decision upholding Louisianas ban, it could have the effect of bringing...

    A federal appeals court in New Orleans will hear arguments Friday (Jan. 9) in three cases involving state bans on same-sex marriage, including Louisiana's, in what could be one of the final courtroom showdowns over the marital rights of same sex couples. A panel of three appeals court judges -- two Reagan appointees and an Obama appointee -- will listen to arguments in a case appealing a district judge's September ruling that upheld Louisiana's 2004 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. It's the first case on the docket for Friday's session in the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which will...

    In an effort to focus some of the prior analysis, and with an understanding that this specific event has a community aspect different from traditional research, it is important to understand the social elements prior to looking at the psychology of the event itself.With that we’re going to widen the scope while narrowing the focus. Let’s start with the social elements, aided by a friend of the treehouse’s endeavors, and exposing a little of myself in the process.While many are seeking justice for Jessica, it is also part of the larger objective to insure that Jessica’s death was not...

    This is a powerful piece by Donald Joy, that originally appeared on my website ClashDaily.com, about the brutal murder/burning of Jessica Chambers. I decided to run it in place of my column because this case seems to have escaped the notice of Lame Stream Media, Al Sharpton and Eric Holder. It also seems as if various bloggers, like Mr. Joy, are more dialed in to this horrendous crime than the Barney Fifes over in Panola County, Mississippi. Herewith is Joy's column regarding this heinous murder of a 19-year-old white cheerleader. Please e-blast it and Facebook and Tweet it to everybody...

    The man who may have been one of the last people to talk with Jessica Chambers says he is being threatened, and he is being called the leader of a gang that may have been involved in Chambers' death. Jessica Chambers, a 19-year-old Panola County resident, was murdered on December 6th. She was found burning next to her car, which was also on fire. "Everybody knows me out here," said Ali Alsanai, son of the owner of the gas station where Chambers was seen pumping gas hours before she died. "Everybody likes me, I get along with everyone so they...

    The incredibly resourceful and brilliant unpaid blogger known only as sundance at TheConservativeTreehouse.com is doing it again. Just as she (or he) did in the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases, sundance is putting the professional media journalists to shame by methodically analyzing and exposing key details of the recent, still-smoldering Jessica Chambers murder caper in rural Panola County, Mississippi, apparently well before ordinary reporters or even police investigators have even begun to rub the sleep from their eyes. This time, probing deeply into the very disturbing mystery surrounding the gruesome torture and burning death last week of the blonde,...

    Friends and family members of Jessica Chambers, the Mississippi woman who was set on fire and burned to death this week, packed a funeral chapel Saturday to remember her life as questions remained about who killed her in such a horrible way. Deborah Sanders, the 19-year-olds aunt, said before the service at Wells Funeral in Batesville that the support of the community following the young womans death has helped comfort the family, but they are desperate to find whoever killed her. Hundreds attended the womans wake Friday.
