Another nine were treated at the scene, but additional details about the victims and their injuries have not been released.

    The Defense Department is poised to take over background investigations for the federal government, using increased automation and high-tech analysis to tighten controls and tackle an enormous backlog of workers waiting for security clearances, according to U.S. officials. The change aims to fix a system whose weaknesses were exposed by the case of a Navy contractor who gunned down a dozen people at Washington's Navy Yard in 2013. He was able to maintain a security clearance despite concerns about his mental health and an arrest that investigators never reviewed. Problems had earlier surfaced with former National Security Agency contractor Edward...

    So I had surgery 6 months to repair a torn and wrecked Shoulder Rotator Cuff. The pain sucked before the surgery and sucked more afterward. It held me back from doing just about everything. I was tired from constantly having to shift to get comfortable and escape the pain and then there was the pain. Oh it sucked...bad. But, It's been Six Months and I've had enough of this baloney. I want to live and live it up. Went to the range today with my Sweet Baby Kimber Tac II. She had been missing me and I her but, we...

When we can't go on, to survive the tide, their debt provides. Someday debt will find them; latch those chains of Biden. One right will remind you, how he taxed and spent our take-home pays. If tyrants usurp you, true debt won't desert you. You'll know he'll still tax you, though he taxed and spent our take-home pays. Double-time, caught between delusion and change, change, change.

    BOSTON -- Tensions were high at Dewey Square Thursday night when police took Occupy Boston protesters into custody. The confrontation started when a protester allegedly brought a sink into the Occupy Boston encampment. According to protesters at the scene, they demanded to know from police why they were blocking the sink from entering the site. 7News was told police took possession of the sink. People then formed a barricade around a police vehicle. A protester told 7News one person was injured, and police confirmed that three people were taken into custody for disorderly conduct. Earlier on Thursday, a judge upheld...

    It is the ultimate Three Stooges comedy--Barak mOe bama, Hil larry Clinton and Curly Joe Biden--nyuk, nyuk, nyuk. The names have been slightly changed to protect the innocent. No one understands what is going on or the precise mission in Libya because the Commander In Chief himself does not have a clue. As the Libyan demonstrations took hold against their tyrant Gadhafi whose forces responded by shooting civilians, President Obama spent the initial rebellious days of March 9th through 17th hosting a TV party to watch the Chicago Bulls defeat the Charlotte Bobcats, convening a conference on bullying, meeting the...

    Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware said in a 2006 debate that China was plotting to take over America and claimed to have classified information about the country that she couldn't divulge. O'Donnell's comments came as she and two other Republican candidates debated U.S. policy on China during Delaware's 2006 Senate primary, which O'Donnell ultimately lost. She said China had a "carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America" and accused one opponent of appeasement for suggesting that the two countries were economically dependent and should find a way to be allies.

(Part 1) July 27, 2010By NachumBy now,  the name ‘JournoList’ is well known throughout the blogosphere.  The assumption is that the hundreds of JournoListas acted in a coordinated attack on Sarah Palin.   It is well known that there is admitted bias and now it is a matter of public record.  What about their actions during the primaries though?   We have the names of the ‘JournoLists’,  so it isn’t hard to look at the record.  Let’s take a walk down memory lane?  The first name that comes to mind is Ezra Klein.  He is the...

Come ride along side me in the patrol car. You’ll see the real story.

    MIAMI, April 15 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama Thursday told a rally of supporters in Florida "the change you fought for is beginning to take hold." Speaking to a crowd estimated at 1,000 at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, Obama said the U.S. economy is growing after a period of contraction and banks have repaid the federal government much of the money used to bail them out of a meltdown in 2008. "The change you fought for is beginning to take hold," he said.

    After years of debate, a health overhaul is finally becoming a reality. Now what? Many big provisions don't kick in until 2014, including the mandate for most folks to have health insurance and many new requirements for health-plan designs. Before then, you'll see a mishmash of other things go into effect at various times—and of course some of the changes depend on the Senate passing the House's so-called sidecar, or reconciliation, bill of changes.

    Jon Corzine is definitely open to running Bank of America. There haven't been any formal talks between the outgoing New Jersey Governor and the board of Bank of America, according to news reports. Part of the reason for this might be that the chairman of the board, Walter Massey, is on vacation. The bank is expected to select someone before Thanksgiving

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Tighter limits on the amount of lead the government allows in children's products and a requirement for new tracking labels are stirring fear among small business owners, already hurting in a tough economy. Starting Friday, the new limits and labels are required as part of a consumer product safety law passed by Congress last summer in the wake of dozens of recalls of lead-tainted toys. Consumer advocates hailed the measures. But some small businesses, like American Educational Products in Fort Collins, Colo.—it sells classroom teaching aids like flash cards, animal models, globes and relief maps—say the testing...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 6, 2009 – Iraqi soldiers and police serving in the southern part of their country are performing the lion’s share of security duties, a senior U.S. military officer posted in southern Iraq told reporters today. “Iraqi security forces are fully in the lead to secure their country and their population,” Army Maj. Gen. Richard C. Nash, commander of Multinational Division South and the 34th Infantry Division, a National Guard unit from Rosemount, Minn., told Pentagon reporters during a satellite-carried news conference. Nash said his troops support Iraqi soldiers and police in operations that span across nine provinces in...

    Washington — Late in the morning on Thursday, April 30, three officials serving under President Barack Obama got on a telephone conference call with members of Congress and Capitol Hill staffers. Steve LaTourette, a former Lake County prosecutor and current Republican lawmaker, was on the other end of that call. So, too, on another phone, was Dennis Kucinich, the Cleveland Democratic congressman who has built a career as a champion of the little guy. Staffers who help inform Sherrod Brown, a Yale graduate and Democratic U.S. senator, were on it. So were staffers for Sen. George Voinovich, a multi-decade Republican...
