    Serial trophy hunter Aryanna Gourdin poses proudly alongside a majestic giraffe she has just gunned down in a picture that sparked a furious ­backlash from animal lovers. But the 12-year-old, who has a string of kills to her name, defiantly vowed never to give up shooting wild beasts and churned out the disputed claim that blood sport like this is a conservation measure that stops the decline in big game numbers. Aryanna shares the images of her and each ­dead creature on her Facebook page complete with captions bragging about the deaths, despite insisting she “loves” animals. In one sick...

    RUSH: All right, here's the Sandy Burglar stuff. By the way, this news coming out yesterday and today is a typical dump going into a slow news time. "Former national security advisor Sandy Berger removed classified documents from National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported yesterday." Now, this has been chalked up here to, "Sandy wasn't thinking," or "Sandy is sloppy," or "Sandy is such a hard worker," or Sandy this or Sandy that. He put it in his socks. He put the papers down his pants or whatever. Now we...

    New York victims of the 2012 storm object to Ted Cruz's vote against relief funds. MINEOLA, N.Y.—Heidi Cruz, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, was met at a campaign event by victims of Superstorm Sandy who protested his opposition to a 2013 bill doling out billions in aid for storm relief and clean-up. People from Long Island and southeast Queens, which were devastated by the October 2012 storm, said the Texas senator’s vote against a $51 billion aid package targeted to New York and New Jersey to recover from the damages disqualified him from the presidency. The 2013...

    New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie may announce a presidential bid as soon as next week, Politico reports. Aides have already said Christie isn't likely to make a move into the crowded GOP primary race until the New Jersey legislature finalizes the state budget around the end of June. But recent travels and staffing changes appear to show he's closing in on a declaration. Christie's campaign-in-waiting announced two additional staff hires in New Hampshire, and earlier this month, longtime Christie aide Maria Comella took a senior position at his political action action committee, Politico reports.

    State Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Union) tonight acknowledged that her husband got help from a non-profit group that assists low-income homeowners in demolishing a shore home severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy that records show had been purchased for nearly a half-million dollars. The owner of the Manasquan home — identified in public records as Richard Stender, the assemblywoman's husband — applied to Monmouth County-based Coastal Habitat for Humanity for help, said Maureen Mulligan, the group's executive director.

    The residents of Belle Harbor Manor spent four miserable months in emergency shelters after Superstorm Sandy's floodwaters surged through their assisted-living center on New York City's Rockaway peninsula. Now, the home's disabled, elderly and mostly poor residents have a new headache: The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked at least a dozen of them to pay back thousands of dollars in disaster aid. (snip) osenberg said the FEMA workers who urged him to apply for assistance during the period when residents were staying at the armory never explained that the money could only be used for housing.

    A program designed to help Rhode Island's older adult population prepare for climate change threats is one of several projects that will receive federal money as part of the state's disaster recovery action plan. This program will receive $150,000 over the next two years. Julia Gold, the health department's climate change program manager, said the agency and its partners will develop these plans during a pilot project to kick off this fall in Washington County. The grant to support this program comes from federal money designed to help long-term recovery efforts related to Hurricane Sandy.

    The American Red Cross has employed an expensive New York law firm in an attempt to hide information about how it spent Hurricane Sandy donations, ProPublica reports. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman wrote to the Red Cross last June requesting information regarding how the organization spent the money it received for Hurricane Sandy relief. ProPublica filed a public information request for the information given to the attorney general’s office, but Red Cross attorneys stepped in. Gabrielle Levin, of New York’s Gibson Dunn, appealed the request and wrote to the attorney general’s office to block the release of information. Levin...

    Though the federal government allocated more than $1.8 billion in Hurricane Sandy disaster relief aid for New Jersey more than a year ago, less that a quarter has been distributed to cash-strapped residents struggling to rebuild, according to a new state report. State officials, however, say they are making considerable progress with recovery programs, addressing concerns and making changes where needed to speed up the delivery of aid. But advocates claim a botched rollout of major housing recovery programs has taken its toll on distributing funding more quickly. More than $1.3 billion of federal aid is "in the pipeline or...

    The once-budding friendship between President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reached its zenith in May on a storm-ravaged boardwalk in Point Pleasant, N.J. After Obama missed four throws at a carnival game, Christie stepped in, picked up a football and tossed it through a hoop, winning the president a stuffed bear. “One and done,” the governor said as a crowd cheered and the two men exchanged a high-five. On Thursday, however, Christie used an appearance before the Conservative Political Action Conference to blast Obama in personal terms, as a weak leader. Accusing Obama of sitting on the sidelines...

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may stand accused of using Sandy money as both carrot and stick in his political battles, but that's not stopping him from asking the federal government for more help. The Star-Ledger reported Wednesday that Christie sent a letter to President Obama asking FEMA to extend its housing program. The program, the paper reports, would not directly bring money into the state, but instead cost the Federal government thousands in maintaining temporary homes for displaced victims. The housing, located in the Central Jersey facility of Fort Monmouth, currently houses 49 families but takes care of 80...

The show was Anarchy Radio, and Lanza called it using the pseudonym "Greg." In audio provided by the NY Daily News, Lanza can be heard talking about Travis, the chimpanzee who attacked and ripped Charla Nash's face off in 2009.

    Beleaguered New Jersey Governor Chris Christie faces a federal probe into the misuse of Superstorm Sandy relief money after his government supervised the funding of a 'Stronger Than The Storm' ad campaign featuring the governor and his family just weeks before his re-election, it was revealed on Monday. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development officials are probing the use of $4.7m of hurricane rebuilding funds on the self-congratulatory tourism ads. Christie is already under fire in his home state following revelations that at least four of his aides and political appointees were involved in a scheme to manipulate traffic...

    U.S. investigators are looking into whether embattled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie misused about $2 million in Superstorm Sandy relief funds for an ad campaign that put him in the spotlight in an election year, a lawmaker said on Monday. Already enmeshed in a scandal over snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge, Christie, a rising star in the Republican party, is now being audited by the Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone Jr., a Democrat. The inspector is focusing on a federally financed $25 million Jersey Shore marketing...

    The photograph below, likely taken in mid-December, shows the remains of the Sandy Hook Elementary School crime scene, where all evidence has now been destroyed. The demolition of the 57 year old structure commenced in October, shortly after a $50 million appropriation made by Connecticut Governor Dannell Malloy to rebuild the school and a $2.5 million payout by President Obama’s Department of Justice to local and regional law enforcement agencies participating in the December 14, 2012 event. http://i0.wp.com/vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/BN-AJ905_nyhook_G_20131113171915.jpgFor additional information and research please consult the Sandy Hook School Massacre Timeline and the Sandy Hook Massacre Compendium of Research and Analysis.

    ...only a fraction of the aid money earmarked for recovery has been used, in what some claim is a painfully slow and opaque process. Only $5.2 billion of the pledged $47.9 billion had been tapped by cities and states by the end of August, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And tracking those funds has been complicated, lawmakers said. "Transparency is woefully lacking. We don't know where the money is. We know people have been approved for grants, but the money has not been distributed," said New Jersey Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer, chair of the environment...

    Evidence points to a December raid of the Riverview Gun Shop in East Windsor, Conn., where Sandy Hook Elementary School murderer Adam Lanza’s mother reportedly purchased the Bushmaster rifle used in the massacre, as being an event staged more for media fanfare than for public safety, legal documents issued to authorize the raid indicate. Gun Rights Examiner has been sitting on much of this information since since the evening of the raid, but has held onto it pending further corroboration of certain information. With the publication in this column on August 29 of such information, further details can now be...
