    'behind the gym' over lewd comments Published October 22, 2016 FoxNews.com Facebook Twitter Email Print Now Playing Trump ramps up campaign schedule in key battleground states Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he wished he could physically confront Republican nominee Donald Trump over lewd comments the real estate mogul made about women that were captured on tape in 2005. "The press always asks me don’t I wish I were debating him," Biden, 73, said of the 70-year-old Trump. "No, I wish we were in high school—I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish." Biden addressed Trump's...
  • UPenn Professor Anthea Butler: Brain-Surgeon Ben Carson Deserves ‘C__n of the Year’ Award

    Dr. Ben Carson deserves a “‘coon of the year’ award,” says a tweet from Anthea Butler, a University of Pennsylvania religious-studies professor and a frequent MSNBC guest. Butler’s revealing invective was in response to a tweet from Daily Beast editor-at-large Goldie Taylor. That tweet highlighted a Sports Illustrated article in which Carson championed Americans’ right to fly flags — including the Confederate flag — that other Americans see as a symbol of hate. The Urban Dictionary website defines “coon” as a “Insulting term for a black person.” The site treats the insult as similar to other words that are rarely...

    RICHMOND, TX (KTRK) -- One man is now in police custody after a bizarre incident this morning at William Velasquez Elementary in Richmond. Fort Bend County authorities tell us two men -- and not teens as previously reported -- were apprehended around 8am in the 400 block of Macek Road today after one man was shooting on the school's roof while the other man played bagpipes. Authorities determined one of the men -- the bagpipes player -- was not involved in the incident and was later released, saying he was "in the wrong place at the wrong time." The other...

    Megyn Kelly will be the first to tell you she’s had a busy week after locking horns with Donald Trump – so she’s taking a vacation. In a clip from “The Kelly File” posted online, the Fox News host told viewers that she will be gone for the next week and a half, while she is spending time at the beach with her husband and kids. “It’s been an interesting week and a long six months without a vacation for yours truly,” Kelly said. The timing of the announcement raised more than a few eyebrows. After Kelly challenged the billionaire...
  • Police: U.S. Airman Marcell Willis Shoots Walmart Workers, Kills Self

    05/27/2015 2:37:37 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 28 replies
    A U.S. airman “with no apparent motive” walked into a Wal-Mart Supercenter in North Dakota early Tuesday and opened fire with a handgun, killing one worker and injuring a second before turning the gun on himself, police said. Grand Forks police said the shooting a few minutes after 1 a.m. may have been random, with no link yet found between Marcell Willis, 21, and either the store or the employees. Willis was stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base, about a dozen miles west of the city....

    In a stunning setback to President Obama’s effort to defer deportation and grant certain citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants, a federal appeals court has just upheld an injunction blocking Obama’s executive order on amnesty. The Washington Times reports that the highly anticipated ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit marks the second major legal setback for an administration that was skirting the Congress and charging ahead on its highly controversial program to defer deportation for as many as 5 million illegals. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of...

    The FBI has completed its investigation into the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old, in Ferguson, Mo., a U.S. official said Wednesday. The Justice Department has not yet announced whether it will file a federal civil rights charge against former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson. But officials and experts have said such a prosecution would be highly unlikely, in part because of the extraordinarily high legal standard federal prosecutors would need to meet. The New York Times and CNN, citing unnamed sources, reported Wednesday that Justice Department lawyers were preparing a memo recommending Wilson not be...

    Hillary Clinton all but called for the introduction of thought crime during a CNN town hall event last night when she asserted that gun control opponents should not be allowed to hold an opinion that “terrorizes” America. fter a school teacher in the audience asked Clinton about high capacity magazines and assault weapons, the presumptive 2016 presidential candidate took the opportunity to go on an extraordinary anti-gun rant. “I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in, but I believe that we need a more...

    President Obama said yesterday: The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay. ... In the end, history is not kind to those who would deny Americans their basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America’s progress or our people. And that’s what the Affordable Care Act represents. As messy as it’s been sometimes, as contentious as it’s been sometimes, it is progress. What Republican will stand up today and say something like this: No, Mr. President. No way, Mr. President. We do not accept, we do...

    If the most disturbing, if underreported, news from yesterday, was Obama's "modification" of NSA capabilities, which contrary to his earlier promises, was just granted even greater powers as phone recording will now be stored for even longer than previously, then this latest development from the Supreme Court - one which some could argue just voided the Fourth amendment - is even more shocking. RT reports that the US Supreme Court has ruled that police may search a home without obtaining a warrant despite the objection of one occupant if that occupant has been removed from the premises. With its 6...

    ESPN has fired Numbers Never Lie host and former NFL star Hugh Douglas after he purportedly called his co-host Michael Smith a “house n*gger” and an “Uncle Tom” during a drunken confrontation earlier this month. During the National Association of Black Journalists Convention earlier this month in Orlando, Douglas allegedly shouted the slurs at his co-host. Deadspin was the first to report on the incident: Douglas was, again, very drunk. Lots of people were drinking, so this was less of a big deal, but then he started making some movements toward the stage at the club. … One person told

    The two men sat in the state senator’s parked car in suburban Rockland County, but New York City was at the front of their minds and the focus of their conversation. What the senator, Malcolm A. Smith, wanted to do, the other man explained, was going to cost “a pretty penny.” “But it’s worth it,” replied Senator Smith, a Democrat, according to a transcript of the January meeting. “Because you know how big a deal it is.” His plan, described by federal prosecutors in a criminal complaint unsealed on Tuesday, was as ambitious as it was audacious. Mr. Smith was...

The assault brought back memories of his father's famous battles with the paparazzi. The young Penn upped his daddy's violent outbursts by hurling a homophobic and racial slur against the photographer in question, who is black, according to TMZ.

Gone, as of Jan. 3, will be anchors Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez and weatherman Dave Price. The network wants you to know, however, that they will continue to be employed on air by CBS News - just elsewhere.

    The Los Angeles Times has a copy of the tape, but won't release it because they said the source--whom I believe is Arab American Action Network (AAAN) founder and anti-Israel Palestinian activist Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada--required it not be released as a condition of sharing it. That's because it likely shows Obama applauding an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel poem that was read at the dinner.

    A federal judge has ordered the Bush administration to release 17 detainees at Guantánamo by the end of the week, the first such ruling in nearly seven years of legal disputes over the administration's detention policies. The judge, Ricardo Urbina of U.S. District Court, ordered Tuesday that the 17 men be brought to his courtroom Friday from Guantánamo, where they have been held since 2002. He indicated that he would release the men, members of the restive Uighur Muslim minority of western China, into the care of supporters in the United States, initially in the Washington area.

    WASHINGTON - Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel's Mercedes-Benz was towed yesterday from the House of Representatives parking space he had been using for years in violation of congressional rules. As a tow truck pulled away the 1972 silver sedan under the watchful eyes of five Capitol police officers, House Republicans voted almost unanimously to oust the Harlem Democrat from his chairmanship of the powerful Ways and Means Committee in the midst of several ethics scandals. The measure, however, failed. Rangel refused to answer questions about the car, whose registration expired in 2004 and which has sat in the House garage, covered...
