    CARSON (CBSLA) — A pet owner is probably telling his dog she’s an extra good girl Friday after a harrowing couple of days during which she went missing. “Man, I had a heart attack!” Daniel Ashimine told CBS2 News. “I don’t care about my car, I really love my dog!” Ashimine was reunited with Holly after she hitched a ride in his car, which was stolen as it was parked behind his restaurant Monday. “My wife and I started driving all over the place looking for the dog,” said Ashimine. “The last couple of nights I didn’t get any rest.”

    “I’m a fighter pilot and I talk like one,” Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) declared a day after reports of President Donald Trump referring to certain countries as “sh*tholes” sparked controversy. In a YouTube video posted Friday advocating “national security, economic security, and border security,” McSally brags she told Republicans to “Grow a pair of ovaries”: “Like our president, I’m tired of PC politicians and their B.S. excuses. I’m a fighter pilot and I talk like one.” “I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done.” McSally served 26 years in uniform [1], retired a...
  • Mike Rowe Destroys Woman Who Wants Him Fired For Being ‘Ultra-Right Wing Conservative’

    TV host Mike Rowe is known for his measured, devastating take-downs of people who attack him or his work. He has perfected the art of subtly twisting the knife in the side of critics with calm, cool language. This skill was on display Thursday when Rowe responded to a woman criticized his politics on Facebook. Rowe narrates the show “How The Universe Works” on the Science Channel. The woman, Rebecca Bright, called Rowe an “anti-education, science doubting, ultra-right wing conservative” who should be fired. “I love the show How the Universe Works, but I’m lost on how the producers and...

    Full title: "Jailed Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Saudi Arabia's richest man, is running out of time to make a deal" Text of excerpt: Saudi Arabia's richest man is running out of time. It's been more than two months since Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was first arrested and detained in what the Saudi government still calls an "anti-corruption" sweep. Yet the first sign of things getting more serious came early this week when Alwaleed was moved out of his restricted quarters at the Riyadh Ritz Carlton Hotel and moved to Al Ha'ir prison, according to the London-based Arabic news site Al-Araby...

    As Phony Synod III Approaches, Cardinal Parolin Gives Hints of the Next Disaster by Christopher A. Ferrara January 12, 2018 A video interview with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, provides a window onto the next looming disaster for the Church: the “Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.” As the Church reels from the effects of the ecclesial H-Bomb that is Amoris Laetitia (AL), Parolin reveals that the next Phony Synod, which will be manipulated from start to finish like the last two, will probably culminate in a document already written as the predetermined “fruit...
  • Someone 'pushed the wrong button' to send false ballistic missile alarm in Hawaii, governor says

    Someone "pushed the wrong button" to send out a false alert to warn of an inbound ballistic missile alarm to Hawaiians, according to Hawaii Gov. David Ige. The incident occurred during an employee shift change, Ige added while speaking with CNN. Cellphones, television, and radio stations received the morning emergency alert, which claimed it was not a drill. Local officials and the U.S. Pacific Command have since confirmed that the emergency alert was sent out in error to residents of the island chain, which recently tested out a Cold War-era nuclear warning siren in response to North Korea's missile and...

    “I wasn't in the meeting with the president so I don’t know what he did or didn't say. I can tell you my family, Heidi as a child lived in Africa, she lived in Kenya and Nigeria. Her parents were missionaries there. My brother-in-law has been a missionary with his wife and sons in Haiti for many years,” Cruz said. President Trump denied using the vulgarity. “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled...
  • Watch: Dick Durbin Advocated for Ending ‘Chain Migration’ in 2010, a Term He Now Says is Racist

    Breitbart ^ | 12 Jan 2018 | John Binder
    In 2010, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) advocated on the Senate floor for ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S., a term that he now claims insinuates racism. While asking Congress to pass the expansive and failed “DREAM Act” amnesty, which would start by legalizing millions of illegal aliens, Durbin touted the fact that the legislation at the time would have ended chain migration, preventing newly amnestied illegal aliens from bringing their extended family members to the U.S. “The DREAM Act would not allow what is...

    Pope Bestows Pontifical Honor On Abortion Facilitator (HT - Lepanto Institute) When President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, Lilianne Ploumen, a former official in the government of Netherlands, established an NGO called "She Decides" to raise money to replace the funds that Trump denied to abortionists.  The Lepanto link details more actions she has taken to promote baby-slaughter, sodomy and other manners of gross immorality. So does Pope Francis call her to repentance?  No!  He bestowed upon her the title of Commander in the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. George.  Ladies and gentlemen, inasmuch as this woman's activities...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Maryland, according to Federal election filings seen on Saturday. Manning, who was granted clemency by former U.S. President Barack Obama, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

    Then the LORD will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. Perhaps President Trump learned something about giving out Olive Branches to the DNC; they are going to shove them in your ear. Now the big outrage is he made some salty language about some Turd World countries who are invading our Country. This is another example of what the DNC is rather than some libs being offended for a man talking like a man....

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., on Friday became the latest Democrat to announce that she will not be attending President Trump’s State of the Union address later this month -- amid growing Democratic plans to protest the event. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC. “To someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? I don’t trust him, I don’t appreciate him and I wouldn’t waste...

    Ah, speculative execution. Man’s ever needing desire to get more done in less time resulted in a similar design for microprocessors. With the third wave maturing and on the brink of fading, speed is all that matters today. Information is available in the blink of an eye and requires similar speeds for decision making. Hesitate, and you’re done for. However, in the microprocessor case, this didn’t serve us too well. Speculative Execution on microprocessor didn’t account for what would happen should past usage trends not materialize. When we talk about every day processes, such as reading the news, this matters...

    Tehran (AFP) - Even with President Donald Trump continuing to waive nuclear sanctions, Iran's economy remains hobbled by US restrictions but some diplomats in Tehran remain quietly confident for the future. The real problem in Iran right now, everyone in the international business community agrees, is uncertainty. That was not helped by Trump's announcement on Friday that he would waive nuclear-related sanctions, but only once more and that Europe must work with Washington to "fix the deal's
  • Hawaii Issues Missile Warning in Error, Sending Panic on Social Media

    Residents and visitors in the Hawaiian Islands Saturday received a missile warning alert in error, but not before creating a panic on social media. The alert read in all capital letters: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.” The alert was sent sometime after 8 a.m. local time, and many people took to Twitter to share screenshots of their phones. A second emergency alert went out about 40 minutes later clarifying that the first alert was a false alarm, CNN associate producer Amanda Golden tweeted. “Repeat. False Alarm” the second alert read.

    Republican North Carolina Rep. Richard Hudson believes law-abiding Americans should be allowed to carry their concealed weapons in every state, and he’s hoping the White House will help him soon make that a reality. “I can tell you, the president’s ready to sign this law,” Hudson told The Daily Caller Wednesday in an exclusive interview on the subject for TheDC’s “Newsmakers” series. “President Trump actually campaigned on concealed carry reciprocity,” the North Carolina Republican recalled. “We’ve got a partner in the White House and we just got to get it to his desk.” Hudson introduced the House version of the...

    SAVANNAH, Ga. — Lawmakers can expect face-to-face meetings with Girl Scouts from across Georgia next month at the state Capitol, where the young scouts plan on treating legislators to a milk-and-cookie reception. These girls bearing gifts of Thin Mints and Samoas will also come packing an agenda. They want to see Savannah's towering suspension bridge renamed in honor of Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts in the coastal Georgia city more than a century ago. The Girl Scouts saw an opening last fall when Savannah's city council formally asked state lawmakers during their 2018 session to strip the...
