    The son of former Fox News host Eric Bolling, who was found dead in his bed at his apartment in Boulder, Colorado, on Sept. 8, was on cocaine and other drugs during a party the night before his death, his friend has told the Daily Mail. Referring to the reports that suggested that the 19-year-old may have killed himself, his close friend Wayne Carter, 21, said the teenager would have never done that. Carter talked to the Daily Mail about Eric Jr.'s illicit substance consumption at the party, adding he was also sending his videos to friends via messaging app...

    “The light passed about 100-200ft above their aircraft. They assumed it to be a drone and reported it to air traffic control. There was no time to take avoiding action,” said the report on the incident, which happened on May 26. ... In 2013 another A320 also had a narrow miss with an unidentified object over Glasgow. The A320 was flying with its landing lights on, in clear conditions and at an altitude of about 4,000ft above the Baillieston area of Glasgow, when the pilot and non-flying pilot saw an object “loom ahead” at a range of about 100m.

    RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency misused federal money meant to help homeowners rework their mortgages after the recession, according to a government watchdog. The Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, commonly known as TARP, found more than $3 million in wasteful spending from the program's "Hardest Hit Fund" in housing agencies nationwide, including more than $107,000 in North Carolina, officials said. The N.C. Housing Finance Agency disputes the findings but has already begun paying the money back, executive director Scott Farmer said Wednesday.

Chelsea also told guests that after a long, hard campaign, her mom is “happy to be away from the daily grind” and hasn’t been dwelling on last November’s stunning election loss to...

    California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters wouldn’t rule out the concept of an all-black political party when asked about it on Monday. Waters joined  “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Monday morning and was asked if it was time for black people to form their own political party. “No, not at this point,” Waters said. “You have to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence.” “We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued. “What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s...

    A woman is dead and eight other people were wounded — including three kids — after a baby gender-reveal party in Ohio erupted in gunfire Saturday night, according to reports. Among the victims in the Colerain Township shooting was a pregnant woman who lost the baby after receiving a bullet to her leg, a family member told NBC affiliate WLWT. Authorities were searching for the assailant or assailants, who fled after shots rang out at a home around 11:30 p.m. Five of the revelers — one in critical condition, three in fair and one stable — were hospitalized at the...

    **SNIP** The hobbled DNC's chief remaining value was as a fundraising vehicle. For Obama, it "was like his ATM – and Clinton was the same," says the former chair. Clinton pioneered a strategy that allowed her largest donors to give $10,000 to each of 32 state parties participating in her Victory Fund. But that money didn't stay in the states. Instead, nearly every penny was hoovered up to the DNC for the benefit of Clinton's election. Clinton today says she found the DNC to be a liability. In an onstage interview at a Recode tech conference in May, Clinton recalled,...

    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Kansas was at the heart of the tea party revolution, a red state where, six years ago, a deeply conservative group of Republicans took the state for a hard right turn. Now, after their policies failed to produce the results GOP politicians promised, the state has become host to another revolution: a resurgence of moderate Republicans. Moderate Republicans joined with Democrats this week to raise state taxes, overriding GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s veto and repudiating the conservative governor’s platform of ongoing tax cuts. The vote was a demonstration of the moderates’ newfound clout in the state...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump made his debut on Washington's social circuit on Sunday by headlining an annual fundraiser for Ford's Theater, scene of Abraham Lincoln's assassination. Trump, accompanied by his wife, first lady Melania Trump, said he was glad to help continue "this long tradition of preserving one of America's most important theaters and honoring one of its greatest presidents and recognizing some of its most accomplished citizens." Trump said Ford's Theater contributes to the "vibrant culture of our nation's capital" and does "tremendous work" educating Americans about "a leader who preserved our nation in its single greatest...

    Donald Trump may be off to the worst start in presidential history, but recent polls and election results show Democrats are even more unpopular than he is. What’s wrong with the Democrats? Recently I ran into a Democratic operative who was adamant that his dispirited party’s stock is rising. It’s looking good, for example, that with all Trump’s troubles, the donkey party finally will win enough seats in special elections this fall to take control of our state’s Legislature from the Republicans. “If Democrats can’t win this year,” he vowed, “we should be abolished as a political party.” Might not...

    That will be the role Hollywood will chronicle in a movie praising ‘The Community Organizer Who Became President & “The President Who Returned to the Life of a Community Organizer’ Outgoing President Barack Obama is leaving the White House in the same venue in which he spent the last eight years: kicking up hedonistic heels for Party Time! The same freeloaders who spent the better part of the last decade boozing it up and gorging themselves at the White House, will whoop it up with party crazed Barack and Michelle as they party on out the door into—hopefully—community organizer oblivion.

    There aren’t many people like Michael Wear in today’s Democratic Party. The former director of Barack Obama’s 2012 faith-outreach efforts is a theologically conservative evangelical Christian. He is opposed to both abortion and same-sex marriage, although he would argue that those are primarily theological positions, and other issues, including poverty and immigration, are also important to his faith. During his time working for Obama, Wear was often alone in many of his views, he writes in his new book, Reclaiming Hope. He helped with faith-outreach strategies for Obama’s 2008 campaign, but was surprised when some state-level officials decided not to...

    After the Republican avalanche of a victory in last month's elections, there was still more good news for the Grand Old Brand New Party courtesy of Nancy Pelosi. It seems she's eked out a narrow victory over a Democratic insurgency against her stultified leadership of the party in the House, a leadership that has been rusting for the past 14 years. If everything isn't coming up roses for the GOP, at least there are tulips covering the horizon the way daffodils do Wye Mountain every spring. And all Nancy Pelosi could say about her aforementioned "leadership" was the same thing...

At least nine people are confirmed dead and several dozen are missing after a fire ripped through the the "Ghost Ship" warehouse in Oakland... As many as 100 people were crowded inside the warehouse for a party when the blaze erupted. They struggled to escape the flames and smoke. Officials fear dozens could have been killed. City records show that there were habitability complaints made against the property's owner as recently as November 14 regarding an "illegal interior building structure." City inspectors appear to have visited the building on...
  • President-Elect Donald Trump Will Attend Donor’s ‘Villains and Heroes’ Costume Party

    Donald Trump‘s plans for Saturday night are all about a decadent costume party being held in Long Island by donors who supported his presidential campaign. The party has a “Villains and Heroes” theme, and it is being hosted by the family of hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer. Politico noted that Mercer gave a $2 million donation to a pro-Trump super PAC during the election, and his daughter Rebekah Mercer has ties to Trump’s transition team and three of his biggest staffers: Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and David Bossie. “It will be the hottest ticket in town,” Conway said to Bloomberg....

    WASHINGTON, United States — Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped her efforts Saturday to request a vote recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she is challenging the results. “Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: “#Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.”

They think that everybody’s more concerned with the donor class than they the working class.” He added, “[W]e can’t keep going down the...
