  • Ohio: Muslim who slashed restaurant patrons with machete was on FBI's radar

    But obviously they weren't following him closely enough. There is no indication at this point that Mohamed Barry had any connection with the Islamic State, but one of their goals is to overwhelm American law enforcement and intelligence agencies with so many jihad plots and jihad attacks and suspected jihadis that they will not be able to keep up, and will collapse from the strain. The fact that "the FBI was looking at Barry for expressing radical Islamic views four years ago" but "moved on from him in their investigation" indicates that this might not be very difficult to do.

    A heated argument erupted Thursday at a hearing on the IRS, with Democrats and Republicans trading charges about the work of the Oversight Committee. Two Democrats on the panel accused their GOP colleagues of repeatedly holding hearings on the IRS for political reasons. In his opening statement, Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) complained that the hearing was the 23rd held about the IRS in recent years. "Unfortunately, Republicans have become obsessed with investigating any and every allegation relating to the IRS, no matter how small," he said. He said Republicans are frustrated that they have never found...

    The FBI has joined the investigation into the machete-wielding man who stormed into an Ohio restaurant and attacked customers at dinner tables before being shot and killed by police. Four people were injured in the attack at Nazareth Restaurant and Deli, a Mediterranean restaurant owned by an Israeli man in Columbus, on Thursday. The victims were taken to an area hospital and are expected to recover, as the suspected attacker, Mohamed Barry, 30, was fatally shot by police. Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner said of the attacker: 'There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after.'...

Marco Rubio of Florida, Ohio Gov.

    The city of Cleveland wants the family of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy who was fatally shot by police 15 months ago, to pay for his ambulance ride. According to a creditor's claim filed Wednesday in Cuyahoga County Probate Court, the city is asking to be reimbursed $500 "for emergency medical services rendered as the decedent's last dying expense." An itemized bill from Cleveland EMS includes $450 for "ambulance advance life support" and $50 for mileage, according to an invoice filed with the claim. "The callousness, insensitivity, and poor judgment required for the city to send a bill — its...

    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire’s primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    The Ohio House of Representatives has made its final vote to approve HB 294, which forbids state health funds from going to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider in the state. If it is signed, which Ohio Governor John Kasich is expected to do, it will cut off the $1.3 million that the state’s affiliate of the abortion giant currently receives per year through the Ohio Department of Health. The same money will still go to support HIV testing, cancer screenings, and violence-against-women programs in the state, just distributed through providers not affiliated with abortion. The bill adds to...

    Everything wrong with Jeb Bush can be summed up in his approach to border security and American sovereignty. As we all now know, the former Florida governor considers illegal immigration an "act of love" on the part of the illegal immigrant sneaking into America illegally. Wednesday morning on "Morning Joe," after barely getting out of New Hampshire alive, Bush repeatedly described frontrunner Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on foreign Muslims as "horrific." You don't have to agree with the idea of Trump's temporary ban to see the benefits of such a thing, or why two-thirds of Republican voters in a...

Mr. Bush accused the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star of being a divisive figure just like President Obama and slammed him for declaring bankruptcy four times for his business ventures.

    ... There is no other way to describe it: the Obama policy is to let the Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah axis take over Syria. That is what the current battle for Aleppo is all about. Times columnist Roger Cohen argues that "It is too late, as well as pure illusion, to expect significant change in Obama's Syria policy." But he proposes that Obama should at least increase the number of Syrian refugees taken in this year to 65,000, as opposed to his currently proposed 10,000. But letting in more refugees scares Americans who suspect that there will be terrorists among them. Such a...

    Presidential candidate John Kasich vows to reunite Pink FloydUS PRESIDENTIAL candidate John Kasich has a new campaign pledge up his sleeve - to reunite Pink Floyd if he is elected to the Oval Office. Republican Kasich, who is the governor of Ohio, faces competition for the spot in his party from Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. However, he is hoping that a plan to get Pink Floyd back together might give him the edge. Kasich said that seeing Pink Floyd's The Wall tour in Pittsburgh was his favourite gig of all time and praised Roger Waters as an "incredible...

    February 4, 2016 Trump: Politicians are 'full of s---' by Bradford Richardson Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he doesn't want to be politically incorrect, but he can't stop himself from saying politicians are "full of sh*t." "These people - I'd like to use really foul language," Trump said at a rally in Exeter, N.H. "I won't do it. I was going to say they're really full of sh*t. But I won't say that." "No, it's true. It's true. I won't say it. I won't say it. But they are," he added. "But I won't say that because it's too...

    Thought you’d want to see what’s flying around New England and online today as Bush, Cruz, Kasich, and Christie (but not Trump, oddly) empty the chamber at Rubio to try to deny him another momentum-boosting showing in New Hampshire on Tuesday. Four clips for you below, in order: A new ad from a pro-Cruz Super PAC comparing the “lightweight” to Peter Pan; a “Rubio = Obama” compilation clip being touted by Kasich advisor John Weaver; a snippet from MSNBC this morning of Christie hinting that Rubio’s no-exceptions position on abortion makes him unelectable; and an interview with Jeb Bush...

    Republican operatives from inside and outside New Hampshire agree: Sen. Ted Cruz is all but doomed to finish below the top tier in the Granite State. The winning coalition Cruz put together in Iowa won't work in New Hampshire, they say, pointing to the fact New Hampshire has the second-lowest rate of church attendance in the country. So the edge that Cruz had among evangelicals isn't particularly applicable there. "I would advise Cruz to skip New Hampshire and go to South Carolina. I believe you shouldn't compete anywhere where it's not a favorable battlefield to win," said Stuart Stevens, a...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Frustrated and flailing as his candidacy threatens to slip away, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is embarking on a scalding effort over the next week to discredit Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, the man he blames for undermining his campaign and whose ascendancy he deeply resents. And Mr. Christie has a secret ally: Jeb Bush. Mr. Christie, whose White House hopes hinge on a strong showing in New Hampshire, is unleashing the kind of cutting and personal attacks that brought him renown in New Jersey but that pose a far greater risk in a presidential campaign,...
  • Shock PPP national poll: Trump 25, Cruz 21, Rubio 21

    Cruz’s numbers here aren’t a shock — he’s been in the high teens and low twenties for awhile — but Trump hasn’t dipped as low as 25 percent in a national poll since November and Rubio hasn’t seen a number as high as 21 percent since … ever. That makes some righty poll-watchers nervous since PPP’s credibility has been attacked in the past. Not only are they liberal, they were the subject of a famous critique of their methodology by Nate Cohn in TNR a few years ago. If you’re looking to throw out this result, which no other...

    Hillary Clinton wants to makes something very clear about her and Donald Trump: "We were not friends." "We knew each other, obviously, in New York," she told People magazine in an interview released on Wednesday. "I knew a lot of people." With daughter Chelsea by her side, the former secretary of state dismissed Trump's recent comments about her husband's infidelity. Trump has said that former President Bill Clinton is "one of the great abusers" of women. Clinton shrugged off Trump's comments as "politics," though not "the brand I approve of."

    On his radio program today, Rush Limbaugh dropped a bombshell report that the rumors of Ben Carson dropping out on Monday were actively encouraged by the Rubio campaign. [Listen] CNN reported that Dr. Carson was on his way back to Florida after the Iowa Caucuses. Staffers working for the Cruz campaign reportedly heard the story and began telling caucus-goers Monday night that Dr. Carson planned on dropping out of the race, allegedly attempting to swing voters for Cruz. According to Limbaugh, however, there are reports that the Rubio campaign is just as much to blame for spreading these rumors, trying...

    Wednesday on his radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh offered his take on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s latest contention that his opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) used fraud to win the Iowa caucuses. According to Limbaugh, the unconventional nature of the charge suggests Trump would not be the “typical Republican establishment candidate.”
