    A second senior airline industry source has revealed his belief that there is some sort of conspiracy behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. As The Herald Sun reports, Emirates president and CEO Sir Tim Clark made world headlines in October when he revealed his doubts about the fate of the missing plane, which disappeared early in the morning of March 8 this year. Now a second senior airline industry source has voiced his doubts about the fate of the plane, with the even wilder claim that the Boeing 777 may have been shot down by US military personnel...

    In a case of wanting justice, a man wiped out his son's inheritance for his quest to win a legal battle. For a $100 speeding ticket, Richard Keedwell spent $30,000. Yes, that amount for a speeding ticket case that could've been solved by paying it. His battle for justice started at what he claims is a speed camera's disfunction, causing it to clock him traveling 35mph in a 30mph zone in Worcester. This took place three years ago and that is how long the court case went on. Instead of paying the speeding ticket, he instead challenged the fine and...

    Newly released FBI documents reveal the FBI lost notes from a 2015 meeting with members of the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s (ICIG) office regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation, according to the Epoch Times. The news–according to the publication–raises concerns that information about an “explosive lead” from the ICIG to the FBI may be lost. The Times writes: The lost notes memorialized a meeting that took place on Aug. 3, 2015, less than a month after the ICIG made a referral to the FBI that classified information may have been disclosed in an unauthorized manner to a foreign power because...

    CINCINNATI – Three women were jogging through Cincinnati’s Spring Grove Cemetery on Friday when a security guard—seeing a storm approaching—offered them a ride, a cemetery rep tells WLWT. They declined the offer, and all three were hit by a lightning strike moments later as they sheltered under an oak tree. The strike killed Danielle Brosious, 27, who would have celebrated her first wedding anniversary in November. A second woman, Patty Herlinger, was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to her injuries Wednesday, WLWT reports. Brosious’ mother was not seriously injured. “Spring Grove is deeply saddened by this tragic accident,” the...

    President Donald Trump’s campaign is trolling vanquished Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with an ‘error’ page that shows Clinton holding a microphone behind the presidential seal. The website’s ‘error’ page gloats over the results of the 2016 election, where Trump defeated Clinton with 306 electoral college votes. (RELATED: Top Hillary Aide: ‘I Would Do An Ankle Dive At The Door’ If She Tried To Run Again) “Oops!,” the page says. “This is awkward. You’re looking for something that doesn’t exist…” While the election was nearly three years ago, Clinton and Trump have continued to trade barbs with each other, with the...

    A German theme park quickly shut down a new ride -- not due to safety reasons, but because critics said it resembled "flying swastikas." The "Eagle Fly" ride at Tatzmania, an amusement park in Löffingen, a city roughly 60 miles northwest of Zurich, Switzerland, was widely criticized after a video of it in motion reportedly circulated online.

    PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. (KIRO/CNN) – What a Washington woman thought would be a fun and unusual photo op turned into a painful situation when an octopus bit her on the face and injured her with its venom. Jamie Bisceglia says she intended to enter a photo contest during a fishing derby near Tacoma, Wash., so she met up Friday to take a picture with some fishermen who had hooked an octopus. “So, crazy me. Hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake,” she said. Bisceglia put the small octopus, believed to be either a juvenile version of...

    U.S.A. –-( There have been startling developments in the investigation of the disastrous no-knock raid in Houston on 28 January 2019. A middle-aged couple was killed and four police wounded. In the light of contradictory police stories, the family of the couple who died hired an independent forensics firm to document the evidence at the home at 7815 Harding Street.

    The astringently humorless "fact check" squad at just keeps ripping the Babylon Bee website, painting their satire as "misinformation." This time, Ellie Gardey at the Daily Caller forced Snopes to revise their "fact check" and add actual facts. The Bee was mocking Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas for claiming a man told her to "go back" to where she came from in the Express Lane at the local Publix supermarket. They inserted the eternally gracious staff at Chick-fil-A into the scene for laughs: “Georgia Lawmaker Claims Chick-Fil-A Employee Told Her To Go Back To Her Country, Later Clarifies He...

    Robert Mueller kicked off his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday afternoon by issuing a clarification of something he said during a morning hearing about his decision-making process when it came to the question of whether President Trump committed obstruction of justice. Mueller raised eyebrows during an exchange with House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif. “The reason that you did not indict the president is because of the OLC opinion that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?” Lieu asked, referring to the Office of Legal Counsel’s long-held position against charging a president while they are in...

    A Georgia state lawmaker has walked back a significant part of her viral claim that a white man told her to "go back where you came from" during a testy argument in a supermarket checkout lane, after the man denied the encounter unfolded the way she described. The episode, hot on the heels of a national controversy over President Trump's remarks directed at four progressive Democrats, quickly made the rounds on social media. Multiple news organizations on Sunday portrayed the episode as a plausible instance of racism, though the lawmaker already had tried to clarify her accusations.
  • Students Call Obama Immigration Quote Racist, While Thinking it was Said by President Trump (VIDEO)

    07/20/2019 8:55:24 PM PDT · by mplc51 · 13 replies
    Students at Georgetown University deemed a quote from Barack Obama to be racist because they thought it was said by Donald Trump. Campus Reform reporter Cabot Phillips went to Georgetown University and asked students how they felt about the quote, which they near universally condemned. The quote was from Obama’s 2014 address about immigration. He had said, “we are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s...

    Progressives never learn.  Even as Democrats running for president line up behind a national $15/hour minimum wage, on the West Coast, where cities like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco all have implemented this demand, a restaurant chain with over 2,000 employees has filed for bankruptcy, citing the high minimum wages that have increased its costs. Jeremy Hill reports for Bloomberg (hat tip: Legal Insurrection): Progressive wage policies helped force upscale eatery operator Restaurants Unlimited Inc. into bankruptcy, according to court documents filed Sunday. The company, which operates 35 restaurants ranging from fine dining to "polished casual" eateries, including Henry's Tavern, Stanford's, and Kincaid's, filed for Chapter 11 protection...

    We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”   But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion,...

    Talk about bad luck. A Florida man was arrested Thursday for impersonating a law enforcement officer after pulling over an actual sheriff’s deputy, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities said Barry Lee Hastings Jr., 35, of Plant City, was traveling eastbound on I-4 about 8:30 p.m. Thursday in his black Crown Victoria when he pulled behind an off-duty Lee County deputy and flashed his emergency lights. The deputy pulled over to the shoulder and the Crown Victoria rolled up besides him. Hastings reportedly told the deputy to “slow down.”
