    A WOMAN is behind bars after allegedly attempting to carry an explosive device through airport security at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, US. Lewiza Daman was accused of trying to sneak a fake bomb past TSA agents to test airport security, TSA agents found what looked like a simulated explosive device inside a carry-on bag at a checkpoint Friday. The container was filled with a paste-like substance, with a cell phone taped to the top. The bomb squad and hazmat teams were called out to the airport until they could determine the device was fake. Daman - an African...

    I nominate The Mule as Prince of Our Democracy, for Person of the year in 2022. The Mule can legally vote 100 times or 200 times more than you or I can vote. He or she can show up at a voting facility or a drop box with that many ballots, and legally deposit that many votes. You or I, the commoner citizen only get one vote. How can this be happening? Maybe the Mule is on good terms with nursing home operators. Mules have been know to collect votes there, where in one state 92 nursing homes had 100%...

    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A Florida woman tried hiding $110,000 in cash beneath her dress when she was removed from her sports car Sunday afternoon after crashing through a concert at a motorcycle dealership, deputies said. Investigators said Catherine Allford, 63, drove a Fiat 124 Spider through a closed-off area where a crowd of people were gathered for a customer appreciation event at Bert’s Black Widow Harley-Davidson, the Charlotte Sun reported. Bystanders started yelling at Allford to stop as she drove through the crowd, but she kept going toward where the band was playing and ran over the guitarist’s...

    WHETSTONE — Michael Cunningham and Darrell Cruse are attracting a lot of attention while driving from Tennessee to California. It’s probably their vehicles. They expect the road trip to take about six months. That’s because of their vehicles too. On Sunday, they could be seen in Whetstone, plodding along State Route 82 on their way to Sonoita. Their easy-going pace is set by two teams of mules, with Cunningham sitting in a wagon behind April and May, while Cruse is driving Kit and Kate. Cunningham and Cruse organized the trip to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s after both men experienced personal...

    SIERRA VISTA — The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office has corralled more than a dozen donkeys and shipped them off for auction after their previous owner repeatedly let them loose to wander the Naco area. Animal control officers and livestock agents with the Arizona Department of Agriculture recently rounded up 19 of the animals, which have caused everything from traffic hazards to property damage, with reports to the sheriff’s office dating back to last summer, said Carol Capas, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office. “They would be in the roadway or near the roadway, on people’s private property and causing damage,” Capas...

    The Daily Caller ^ | May 30, 2011 | Matthew Boyle
    A spokesman for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, told The Daily Caller the Congressman’s team has “retained counsel” and is exploring the “proper next steps” after his official Twitter account posted a picture of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer shorts. The internet-driven scandal has come to be known online as “#Weinergate,” a pun on the Congressman’s last name. “We’ve retained counsel to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken,” Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold said in an email. “This was a prank. We are loath to treat...

    I won't be posting the KOmmie rants from their THREAD, "Breitbart's Weiner hoax: New photos surface! Analysis, and Surprise!" because the hilarity isn't so much in what they said but in how they presented it. You have to actually see their thread to fully appreciate the unintentional humor in the highly detailed closeup analysis of several Weiner bulge photos plus the accompanying charts. They are so desperate to pin Weinergate on Andrew Breitbart that I won't be a bit surprised if they present spectral analysis graphs of the Weiner bulge as well as subject the pics to a CAT...
  • Woman Who Reportedly Received Picture of Rep. Weiner's "Junk" Responds

    On Friday far left Rep. Anthony Weiner said his twitter and Facebook accounts were hacked. He said this after a picture of his penis was reportedly sent out to a young woman in Seattle. Here's her picture. Tonight Gennette Nicole Cordova released a statement. The New York Daily News posted a response from the woman who received the penis tweet from Rep. Weiner. She admitted that Weiner followed her on Twitter but blamed the penis tweet on "the person familiar to me" but maybe not Rep. Weiner.  It's a bit confusing. Friday evening I logged onto Twitter to find that...
  • PRUDEN: Would Obama settle for kicking a mule?

    Washington Times ^ | 6/10/10 | Wesley Pruden
    When Barack Obama says he wants to "kick somebody's ass" over the Gulf oil spill, we presume he may be willing to settle for a mule, since mules are easier to find than asses and provide bigger targets. But he has to be careful whose ass to kick. Pick the wrong one, and he'll get a swift kick in return. The Secret Service would shoot the offending ass and ask later whose it was. But still, it's undignified for a president of the United States to suffer an ass-kicking. The president is an elegant Ivy Leaguer, after all, equally at...

    Irish authorities say a Slovak man unwittingly carried hidden explosives on board a weekend flight to Dublin after a Slovakian airport-security test went awry. The 49-year-old electrician was arrested Tuesday, but released without charge after Slovak security officials alerted their Dublin counterparts to the screw-up.

    Bill Clinton's chief of staff when he was governor of Arkansas is expected to turn herself in after authorities issued a bench warrant for her arrest for allegedly smuggling contraband into a state prison, her attorney told CNN Wednesday. Betsey Wright served Clinton as chief of staff for 7 years in Arkansas and ran 3 successful campaigns for governor. Betsey Wright allegedly smuggled a red Doritos bag containing 48 tattoo needles, a pen with tweezers and a needle inside, a Swiss Army knife and a box cutter into the Varner Unit, a high-security state prison in Grady, Arkansas, according to...

    A couple from Montana were riding the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion, a Mountain Lion decided he wanted to stalk the dogs (you'll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very bad decision. The hunter got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot, the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs. With that, the mule took off and decided HE...

    A New York Roman Catholic church said it is attempting to solve its over-heating problems with a product bearing a name unusual for a church -- a Big Ass Fan. Members of Our Lady of Refuge Church in Brooklyn said they raised money to purchase the product from Big Ass Fans regardless of its name, the Daily News, a New York newspaper, reported Wednesday. The name of the company isn't something that you'd want to put in print, but I had to laugh - it is a big-ass fan, said Ronald Holder, a parishioner for more than 20 years who...

    A new video of the Army's BigDog 'bot highlights its eery abilities Two years ago we showed you Boston Dynamics' incredible BigDog—one of the world's most ambitious legged robots—being developed for DARPA and the U.S. Army. With its advanced system of hyper-responsive hydraulic joints and a suite of sensors, accelerometers and gyroscopes, the BigDog's most stunning achievement is it's ability to walk, climb and maintain its balance on diverse terrain, even after slipping on ice or receiving a kick to one side. All while carrying several hundreds of pounds of supplies on its "back." In this new video, we see...
