  • Conservative Jewish Student ‘Forced to Go Into Hiding’ After Admitting She Voted for Trump

    When L’wren Tikva, 23, was invited to speak about a VICE documentary on feminism, she didn’t realize that saying “yes” would have a “horrific” impact on her life. Tikva — a pro-Israel student at Arizona State University — flew to Manhattan in March to be filmed on a panel with eight other women. But things immediately went awry when the moderator asked if anyone was a Trump supporter. Tikva raised her hand. “I just really did not like Hillary Clinton,” said Tikva. “I literally sat in the voting booth for a long time, I honestly didn’t even think Donald Trump...

    When elderly World War II veterans go to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to receive urgent care, they may be greeted by child molesters, ex-convicts, men with face tattoos and gun-wielding rapists. Eleven sex offenders list the John D. Dingell VA Hospital in Detroit as their work address. Within the VA’s regional office for Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, 30 sex predators work at nine facilities, according to the records. . . . Three men listing the Detroit hospital as their work address are currently in violation of their sex offender registry requirements and are being sought by authorities.

  • 'I hope you have a big fence!': Joe Biden's awkward [creepy] swearing-in ceremony compliment

    The Daily Mail ^ | January 7, 2015 | Ashley Collman
    Vice President Joe Biden is famous for his off-beat humor, but when he swore in the new Congress on Tuesday his jokes took on a remarkably creepier tone. When introduced to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's teenage granddaughter Emily, Biden commented: 'I hope you have a big fence around the house!' The comment was made as Biden posed with the 80-year-old Republican senator's large family, on the day he officially became president pro tempore of Congress. Biden thought the joke about the girl's good looks so funny, he whipped it out again when he met the daughter of freshman Senator Joni...
  • Ohio State fires band director Jonathan Waters over ‘sexualized’ culture

    Dispatch ^ | 7/24/2014 | Staff
    Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has existed for years. The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known. Waters, 38, was ousted from his post effective today, OSU President Michael V. Drake said. Details of the investigation are laid out in...

    On September 11, 2012 — 11 years after Al Qaeda launched an attack against the U.S. — the American Embassy compound in Benghazi, Libya was attacked. In the ensuing gunfight, four Americans died — including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Lost amongst the blame game and politicking that played out over the internet and cable news was the fact that these men came from families. They had lives. They were somebody’s son. Charles Woods lost his son, Ty , on Sept. 11, 2012. Invited to the State of the Union as the guest of Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine, Woods is...
  • Gates: By the Way, Harry Reid Saying the War in Iraq was Lost in '07 Was "Disgraceful"

    My colleague Ed Morrissey flagged this story earlier today, and as he noted at the time, the full quote is way worse than his headline let on: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s proclamation in 2007 that the Iraq War was lost, Gates told the crew at Morning Joe, was “one of the most disgraceful things I’ve ever heard a politician say.” And this is a guy who’s been around politicians practically his entire professional career. Obviously the sense of revulsion I felt when he accused Scott Brown of being too scared to debate Elizabeth Warren -- and Mitt Romney of...

  • The Most Incorrigibly Political and America-Bashing President

    05/07/2013 6:30:56 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | May 7, 2013 | David Limbaugh
    President Barack Obama has to be the most partisan and most ideological president we've seen in a long, long time. He cannot or will not refrain from injecting his partisan politics into almost every occasion. Did he go to Mexico last week to improve our relationship with our southern neighbor or to use Mexico, as he does anything else he can find, as a political prop to bash Republicans and as a platform to criticize the United States? What other American president has so often sidled up to foreign countries on the backs of his own countrymen? Obama's defenders deny,...

    Before Romney issued his statement today, an open mic capture the press coordinating questions to ask Romney, with one saying “no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question”. I’ve transcribed it to the best of my ability but the audio is below for verification: I’ve labeled one as the CBS News reporter as I believe it is Nancy Cordes who works for CBS News. If I’ve gotten that wrong I apologize and will correct. UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: …pointing out that the Republicans… *unintelligible* …Obama…. CBS REPORTER: That’s the question.

  • Newt Gingrich Slams Obama's 'Disgraceful' Comments

    Newt Gingrich today hit out at Barack Obama's intervention in the case of the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager, calling the President's comments 'disgraceful' and racially divisive. Mr Obama heightened the national outcry over Trayvon Martin's death when he called for a thorough investigation into the case and expressed sympathy with the boy's parents. Martin's killing by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Orlando has sparked nationwide calls - led by civil rights leader Al Sharpton - for Zimmerman to be arrested. But GOP presidential candidate Mr Gingrich said Mr Obama's remarks were 'dividing the country up', and...

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The old lady crawls in the dirt, wailing for her pills. The elderly man lies motionless as rats pick at his overflowing diaper. There is no food, water or medicine for the 85 surviving residents of the Port-au-Prince Municipal Nursing Home, barely a mile from the airport where a massive international aid effort is taking shape. "Help us, help us," 69-year-old Mari-Ange Levee begged Sunday, lying on the ground with a broken leg and ribs. A cluster of flies swarmed the open fracture in her skull. One man has already died, and administrator Jean Emmanuel said more...

    The Telegraph ^ | 9/16/2009 | Janet Daley
    Jimmy Carter has made an outrageous, unfounded and potentially inflammatory remark about race. He has claimed that a great proportion of the vitriolic opposition to President Obama’s health reforms and spending plans are actually motivated by racial hatred: that this president is being attacked not for his policies but for his colour. He offers no evidence for this extraordinary assertion presumably because there is none. The town hall meetings in which the Obama healthcare plans have been attacked with such vehemence have not been characterised by racist slur or even oblique references to the president’s skin colour.

    The 270 victims who died in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 more than two decades ago included 189 Americans, among them dozens of college students and military personnel heading home for the holidays. Former Libyan intelligence agent Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was convicted of the terrorist act in 2001 and sentenced to 27 years in a Scottish prison. That's where this monster should have ended his days.

    A radio station in Houston has posted on its website two video clips of a Texas elementary school "diversity" assembly where a volunteer leads students in saying a pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag. Station KTRH has posted both a video clip showing elementary students cheering and waving Mexican flags, and a separate clip showing people the school described as volunteers leading students in the pledge in Spanish. The story by Scott Braddock of KTRH notes that "whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention," however the audio clearly indicates that students are reciting the...
