  • Racial slurs thrown at Congressman Al Green (truncated)

    ... after he calls for Trump's impeachment (headline continued) During a town hall meeting on Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week. "You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said. The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. "You ain't going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you," said a caller. The Houston Democrat was the first member of Congress to call for Trump's impeachment from the House floor...

    Gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan could find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters as soon as this fall. A ruling is expected soon from the same appeals court that recently lifted protections for wolves in Wyoming. Officials say that whether Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan can hold wolf seasons this fall would depend in part on how soon the court rules. Meanwhile, wolf-hunting supporters in Congress aren't giving up even though a Minnesota representative was instrumental in killing an effort that would have allowed the three Midwest states to resume wolf hunting.

    Animal control officers in Maryland tracked down and captured a loose dog many residents believed to be a wolf. Prince George's County police shared photos which concerned several citizens due to its large size and wolf-like appearance. Police managed to track down and capture the animal at about 10:30 a.m. on Thursday and confirmed that it was a large dog. "It seems to be a mixed malamute/husky-type dog," Prince George's animal management Chief Rodney Taylor told WUSA. "He's definitely a dog." The dog was found without any kind of identification such as a chip or a collar and will be...

    Facing a budget shortfall that has grown to more than $600 million, the Wolf administration has pledged to cut agency spending before turning to tax increases to shore up revenue as Republicans clamor for a sweeping restructuring of government services. Budget Secretary Randy Albright on Wednesday estimated the current fiscal year shortfall has grown to $603 million, up from roughly $500 million projected a month ago by the Independent Fiscal Office. Albright said the administration will first look to restrain or reduce state spending before seeking additional revenues through tax increases.

    Pennsylvania state inmates are no longer being punished with the baked brown slabs known as food loaves. The loaf was a combination of beans, rice, raw potatoes, carrots, cabbage and oatmeal. The Department of Corrections has stopped giving the food loaves to inmates in restricted housing who misbehave with their food. …

    State Sen. Scott Wagner, R-Spring Garden Township, intends to run for governor of Pennsylvania, he said Thursday. He intends to write "a significant seven figure check" to his campaign, from $1 million to just shy of $10 million. He said he has not yet decided whether that money will be a loan to a committee that could be paid back to him or a direct gift. He said that contribution will not require him to sell part of Penn Waste, a waste and recycling company he owns. Wagner, who has been publicly considering a run for months, plans to make...

    On Thursday all along major highways, midstate motorists might have witnessed PennDOT workers taking on a different task: Crews were instructed to remove the plethora of political signs that have popped up along major highways, including Interstate 81 and routes 11-15, 22-322 and Linglestown Road. This wasn't PennDOT turning partisan, however. The transportation agency says it was just doing its job to keep major highways clear of possible crash-causing distractions and sight obstructions. PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny confirmed his district's political sign-clearing operation conducted in Dauphin and Cumberland counties all day Thursday. But he could not say how many PennDOT...

    He came across the creature after spotting a sign on a house in Tuscon, Arizona, offering the animal free-of-charge and decided to take him home. ... As his owner was a full-time college student and had a full-time job, Neo spent extended periods of time in the backyard - from which he would often dig under or jump over the fence to play with the dogs next-door. 'He built a higher fence to help contain him, but Neo chewed through it and continued to escape,' Cate Salansky of Wolf Connection told the animal website. Despite being initially welcoming and allowing...

    A free puppy may sound great in theory, but one Arizona man got more than he bargained for when his new pet behaved, um, rather interestingly. The young pup acted very nervously, needing constant companionship and peeing and pooping all over his owner's car. That's pretty run-of-the-mill for a puppy, but the dog also became quite the escape artist.

    Dr. Wolf concluded: There’s no need for wild speculation or sensationalization. Hillary’s health problems are (1) knowable and (2) highly significant. This is my wheel house. And tonight Dr. Milton Wolf responded to Hillary Clinton’s doctor’s report. “Hillary’s doctor just claimed Hillary had a perfect score on a test that doesn’t exist.” A "CTA" is a CT (or cat scan) angiogram. It always requires contrast. Always. It cannot be included in a "non-contrast CT scan." /2 — Dr. Milton Wolf (@MiltonWolfMD) September 14, 2016 In fact, there is no such thing as a "CTA calcium score" study. A CT calcium...

  • Photo Shows Possible Rare Gray Wolf Sighting in Northern California

    Wildlife experts are keeping their fingers crossed this morning. They are hoping new evidence proves a wolf is living in Northern California. The information, which is not yet conclusive, shows photos from four trail cameras in Lassen County. Wildlife experts aren't sure if it's a wolf, dog, or wolf-dog hybrid. Gray wolves are native to California but were driven extinction in the state by the mid-1920's.

    Joanne Barnaby and her friend Tammy Caudron were searching for morel mushrooms in an area near Fort Smith when they were separated. Barnaby was accompanied by her trusty dog Joey. Barnaby recalls, "I heard this growl behind me. There was a long, tall, very, very skinny wolf. A black wolf. And his legs were spread and his hair was standing, and he was growling, and baring his teeth." This black wolf seemed to know what it was doing and was pushing them back further into the woods. Barnaby said, “He was trying to wear me down. He was trying to...

    Joanne Barnaby was stalked by a wolf for 12 hours, eventually leading the animal into a trap What's the best way to fend off a wolf that's stalking you? Bait it with a bear cub, of course. It sounds incredible, but that's exactly what Joanne Barnaby did when she got into a terrifying situation while out picking morel mushrooms near Fort Smith, N.W.T., last Friday. Barnaby and her friend Tammy Caudron headed out to an area burned by wildfires to spend an hour or two searching for the elusive morels. They soon became separated, leaving Barnaby alone with her loyal...
  • Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf Threatens to Veto Bill to Ban Dismemberment Abortions

    Abortion activists in Pennsylvania are putting up a fight against a new bill to ban painful late-term abortions and gruesome dismemberment abortion procedures in the state. Pennsylvania House Bill 1948, sponsored by state Rep. Kathy Rapp, would ban brutal dismemberment abortions that tear unborn babies limb from limb and prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies can feel pain. A state House committee passed the bill last week, but pro-abortion legislators have been trying to block the bill from a full vote in the House. On Monday, abortion activists even brought in some big names – Gov. Tom Wolf...

    Scientists from the University of Oxford and the University of Manchester have used a new technique, "Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry," or ZooMS, to identify more than 2,000 bone fragments recovered from Russia's Denisova Cave. ZooMS analyzes the collagen peptide sequences in bone, which can then be used to identify its species. Among the remains of mammoths, woolly rhino, wolf, and reindeer, the researchers found one Neanderthal bone. "When the ZooMS results showed that there was a human fingerprint among the bones I was extremely excited. ...The bone itself is not exceptional in any way and would otherwise be missed by...

    Trump 'fine' with waterboarding In an another interview, Trump also said he would be "fine" with waterboarding Salah Abdeslam, one of the leaders of the Paris attacks several months ago who was just captured in Brussels, in order to get more information on potential future attacks. "Well I'm not looking to break any news on your show, but frankly the waterboarding, if it was up to me, and if we changed the laws or have the laws, waterboarding would be fine," the Republican front-runner said on NBC's "Today" show. "I would say they should be able to do whatever they...

    Republican Eric Nelson, in a landslide victory, won a special election Tuesday for the state House seat left open by the departure of Tim Krieger, keeping the seat under GOP control.

Nelson, 50, a businessman and college instructor, is expected to take office once the results are verified by the county's election bureau. He will serve through Dec. 31 to complete the two-year term that was vacated when Krieger, a Delmont Republican, was elected a Westmoreland County judge. . . . Nelson,...

    This is one of the most difficult posts I have ever had to write. I had naively hoped that this election cycle, I would be treated to a substantive contest between a spate of highly accomplished two-term conservative governors, and Senators of great rhetorical skill acting as the ideological conscience of the bunch. As the primary wore on through the summer of 2015, it became clear that the GOP electorate was not interested in governors of accomplishment, but I still had hope for a final contest between two of my favorite Senators: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. I hoped to...
