    Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump blasted the unnamed "bastard" responsible for setting up a faulty sound system at a Wednesday-night campaign rally. "And by the way, I don't like this mic," Trump said after criticizing US trade policy with China during his speech in Pensacola, Florida. The Republican presidential front-runner then crudely instructed his staff to not pay the person responsible. "Whoever the hell brought this mic system, don't pay the son of a b----," he said. Trump added: "This mic is terrible. Stupid mic keeps popping. Do you hear that George? Don't pay him! Don't pay him. You know, I...

    Mark Levin was epic tonight as he went after the media for obsessing over Donald Trump not defending Obama in his townhall last night when he got the question about Obama being a Muslim and not an American. I’ve got three clips for you from Levin’s first hour and I encourage you to listen to them all. As I said, Levin was in epic form in all of them. Listen:

    Chris Christie was on FOX and Friends Monday morning. He mocked Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee for their support of jailed Christian Court Clerk Kim Davis. Both Cruz and Huckabee will attend a protest outside the Rowan County jail on Monday. “Quite frankly I don’t think you should grandstand on this stuff. This is a serious issue. I don’t know if she’s looking forward to a visit from Senator Cruz, or not. We’ll see. But the fact is, I don’t think he should grandstand on this.”

    Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined the Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon during his show Your World to blast the biased media coverage against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “the height of unprofessionalism” and challenged Republican presidential contenders to demand the “end [to] this hostility towards Israel.” Cavuto introduced Bozell after reading a series of media headlines lamenting Netanyahu’s reelection that included part of a Time magazine headline that declared: “Netanyahu's tactics leave peace as road kill.” Observing that the slanted coverage has been “pretty blatant,” Cavuto asked Bozell for his initial thoughts to which Bozell...

    Vice President Joe Biden had this to say today about whether there's a "depression" in America: "The unemployed are in real trouble," Biden said. "My grandpa used to say, from Scranton, he’d say, ‘Joe, when the guy in Dunmore - the next town over – when the guy in Dunmore is out of work, it’s an economic slowdown. When your brother-in-law is out of work, it’s a recession. When you’re out of work, it’s a depression. It’s a depression for millions and millions of Americans." But the last bit is particularly curious since it sounds an awful lot like something...

    The powerful Republican head of the House Appropriations Committee got rough with President Obama’s environmental chief over the Environmental Protection Agency's coal mine permitting process on Wednesday. The wood-paneled committee hearing room suddenly seemed like a small-town courtroom as Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) turned prosecutorial on EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. At one point, after Jackson fumbled when trying to name any Appalachian mines she had permitted during her tenure, Rogers declared “I rest my case!” At issue is an October Federal Court ruling in the case of National Mining Association vs. Jackson. Rogers said that the ruling makes clear that...

    NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Jon Stewart says the worst part about conservative complaints of media bias is when they contain "a kernel of truth" -- and that conservatives have a point about Newsweek's unflattering Michele Bachmann cover. The cover describes her as "The Queen of Rage." Stewart called Newsweek out on Tuesday's "The Daily Show" for using cheap attempts to undercut the Minnesota representative and Republican presidential candidate. He mocked the magazine's statement that it ran the photo to capture the way she has galvanized Iowa voters. "I get it, Newsweek," Stewart said. "You put in 'The Queen of Rage'...

WYNN: The living standard of my employees has been plummeting. The early results of Obamacare have caused our insurance to increase, our cost of medical, we self-insure, to go from 8% increase a year to 12, and for the first time since we built the business we had to increase the amount of copay of our employees, so some money has been taken out of their...

    Crescent City, Calif. (AP) -- A tsunami swept at least five people watching the waves out to sea Friday and ripped docks out of harbors in California, spreading the destruction of a devastating Japanese earthquake to the shores of the United States. Four people were rescued from the water in Oregon, but one man who was taking photos in Northern California was still missing Friday afternoon. Coast Guard helicopters searched for him near the mouth of the Klamath River in Del Norte County, Calif., after his two friends made it back to shore.

    RIPs are alive and well -- and moving -- in the human genomeAn ambitious hunt by Johns Hopkins scientists for actively "jumping genes" in humans has yielded compelling new evidence that the genome, anything but static, contains numerous pesky mobile elements that may help to explain why people have such a variety of physical traits and disease risks. Using bioinformatics to compare the standard assembly of genetic elements as outlined in the reference human genome to raw whole-genome data from 310 individuals recently made available by the 1000 Genomes Project, the team revealed 1,016 new insertions of RIPs, or retrotransposon...

    Both Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow offered their best to outgoing legendary anchor Larry King on Dec. 16, his final broadcast night. But how does the outgoing CNN anchor feel about them? On CNN’s Sunday broadcast of “Reliable Sources,” host Howard Kurtz asked King about his competitors, which he was third to in the ratings at the tail-end of his career. King admitted they were good at what they did, but said he didn’t particularly care for it. “They got better ratings,” King said. “However, I don’t regret anything and I’m happy with what I did.

    On Tuesday's Situation Room, CNN's Jack Cafferty used the term "Obama-nation," a pun on the word "abomination," which is used on many conservative blogs, to slam the "sprawling bureaucratic giant...that seems to be the result of President Obama's new health care law." Cafferty admitted during his commentary that ObamaCare is "shaping up to be exactly what the critics were afraid it would be." The CNN commentator devoted his regular Cafferty File segment 12 minutes into the 6 pm Eastern hour to the recent report from the Congressional Research Service that, as Cafferty put it, "says it's 'impossible' to estimate the...

    SALEM -- Oregon’s stubbornly bad economy has left a huge hole in the state budget, distressed lawmakers learned today -- $563 million that must be cut from schools and other programs over the next year unless more money comes in. The figure was reported during the quarterly economic and revenue forecast, delivered minutes ago to a somber gathering of House and Senate revenue committees. The bad financial news means that either Gov. Ted Kulongoski or the Legislature must take steps to balance the current two-year budget, which

    The commander of Connecticut’s Veterans of Foreign Wars organization blasted Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal Tuesday, referring to his prior statements of service in Vietnam as “outrageous.” “Mr. Blumenthal was considered one of the best friends a veteran could have in Connecticut. It is a true shame that he let a false claim of Vietnam service change that,” said Richard DiFederico, in a statement. “Those who served in uniform during the Vietnam era also deserve our gratitude, which makes Mr. Blumenthal's claim to be something he is not so outrageous.” DiFederico’s statement came after Blumenthal’s dramatic and defiant press conference Tuesday...

    COLONIE, NY - GOP gubernatorial wannabe Rick Lazio ripped into Attorney General Andrew Cuomo Monday, saying "you can't lead from a foxhole." Addressing a state Conservative party conference, Lazio attacked Cuomo, who is expected to announce a run for governor in late March, for remaining behind the scenes and staying silent as New York grapples with one crisis after another. "A year ago Andrew Cuomo left this conference and rather than provide the kind of leadership the state is hungry for, he locked himself in his office and watched as Albany burned," Lazio said. He never mentioned Gov. Paterson's name...

    WASHINGTON - The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has written a searing critique of government efforts at “strategic communication” with the Muslim world, saying that no amount of public relations will establish credibility if American behavior overseas is perceived as arrogant, uncaring or insulting. The critique by the chairman, Adm. Mike Mullen, comes as the United States is widely believed to be losing ground in the war of ideas against extremist Islamist ideology.

The Beach Memorial was truly memorable and more special than we could have possibly imagined. We have many people to thank for their efforts in making it happen.
