    He'd drunk 11 cans of Stella at neighbour's BBQKnife-wielding Craig Winwood has been jailed after threatening to stab police officers during a three-and-a-half hour siege. The 35-year-old had drunk 11 cans of Stella when he locked his partner outside their Norton home - and refused to open the door for police. He threatened to baseball bat anyone who entered the property and brandished a knife. But when police cut a hole in the door the defendant eventually passed two knives through before leaving the property to end the stand-off. Now Winwood - who has 21 previous convictions for 61 offences...

    A Minnesota congressional candidate hoping to unseat Ilhan Omar with promises of being tough on crime faces felony shoplifting charges, according to a report. Danielle Stella, a 31-year-old supporter of President Trump, was arrested twice this year in the thefts of 279 items worth more than $2,300 from a Target and $40 worth of goods from a grocery store, The Guardian reported. “I am not guilty of these crimes. In this country I am innocent until proven guilty and that is the law,” the special-education teacher told the news outlet. “If I was guilty of crimes, I would never run...
  • GOP Challenger To Ilhan Omar Drops Hammer: ‘Unlike you, I denounce terrorist organizations’

    MAGA Daily Report ^ | July 17, 2019 | James Murray
    Ilhan Omar has a GOP challenger and my guess is she will also get primaried by Pelosi. There is a war going on in the Democratic party and Onar and AOC and other “justice Democrats” are trying to primary establishment candidates. Some in the establishment are fighting back and want to primary AOC and Omar and the rest of the gang. We will see what happens but we know for sure Omar has one challenger and she just dropped the hammer on Omar. Responding to Omar’s nonsense she hit back hard and shut down Ilhan – ‘Unlike you, I denounce...

    “I think it’s clear mainstream media needs to do a better job of reporting on rural America.” – Chuck Todd, NBC News Despite the fact that Stella was a blockbuster - dropping up to 4 feet of snow along with wind gusts over hurricane force throughout  many rural areas in the East -  you haven’t heard much about it. “Where’s the snowblower?” “Right outside the door, honey.”That’s primarily due to the fact that New York City was spared. And despite what Chuck Todd said everybody knows that NYC is the epicenter of the country and nothing outside it’s borders...

    Friday, March 10, 2017, 5:55 - Parts of the Northeast are primed for significant snow threats through midweek next week as Canadian Arctic air spills south. A clipper system is forecast to descend form the Canadian Prairies this weekend bringing light snow to the Upper Midwest. As the low interacts with the sub-tropical moisture in the Southeast, it will begin to significantly intensify Monday and Tuesday. Early models indicate areas north of Virginia could see the highest snowfall accumulations Monday through Wednesday, while areas farther south will see mostly rain. “The threat of heavy snow greatly increases for Pennsylvania, New...

    This Nor'easter, named Stella, is coming on like a son of a gun! My sidewalks are already indistinguishable in height from the lawn on either side. I spent a lot of Monday preparing to be snowed in: moved up medical appointments to Monday morning, topped up the gas in my car, corrected deficiencies in food staples supplies (shelves were already conspicuously bare in many aisles), laid in a good supply of crickets for my lizards, studied weather reports, and checked on friends. How have you in the Northeast prepared for Stella? If you stay home, how are you going to...

    Get out now while you still have the chance! A blizzard warning has been issued for New York City and much of the tri-state area beginning at midnight Tuesday as Winter Storm Stella threatens to dump as much as 18 inches of snow. Whiteout conditions are expected to make travel extremely dangerous and power outages are likely amid crippling wind gusts of 20 to 40 mph, according to AccuWeather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. New Yorkers stockpile supplies as massive snowstorm looms. “Travel will be poor at best, if not impossible,” Kines told The Post on Monday. “If you have the...

    American Thinker ^ | 9/14/2012 | Stella Paul
    Barack Obama is not a real president, though he does play one on TV. So what is he? It's my contention that the bizarre creature currently residing in the White House is an attractive spokesmodel for our destruction, sponsored by America's mortal foes. The time for politely mincing words is over. After the Democrats booed God and Jerusalem at their national convention; after Obama refused to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as Israel faces nuclear destruction; after Obama enthroned the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East and then apologized for America when our embassies were fatally attacked there on...

    PALMDALE - Getting into uniform to do your bit and help beat the Nazis gathered in fearsome strength just across the English Channel often meant being ready to lie about your age. And that's what Stella Slydell was willing to do to help win a war that had to be fought. "We all lied about our age during that time," Slydell said. "I was not quite 17 when I entered the Air Force (in) late '42 or early '43," the Palmdale resident remarked of her days serving in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force for the United Kingdom during World War...

    SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Author Terry McMillan has filed for divorce from the man who inspired the 1996 novel "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," which chronicled the romantic adventures of a 40-something woman who falls for a guy half her age. In papers filed in Contra Costa County Superior Court, McMillan, 53, says she decided to end her 6 1/2-year marriage to Jonathan Plummer, 30, after learning he is gay. The revelation led her to conclude Plummer married only to get his U.S. citizenship, she said. McMillan met Plummer at a Jamaican resort a decade ago.

    I've had several conversations with posters about good beers and I tried a new one (for me) last night ... and it was fantastic. I picked up a 6-pack of a beer named Stella Artois which is a premium lager. It is brewed in Leuven, Belgium and claims to date back to the year 1366. The beer was incredibly smooth and delicious. While their politics may be messed up, those Europeans sure know what they are doing when it comes to beer.

    2004 July 25 A Solar Filament Lifts Off Explanation: Hot gas frequently erupts from the Sun. One such eruption produced the glowing filament pictured above, which was captured in 2000 July by the Earth-orbiting TRACE satellite. The filament, although small compared to the overall size of the Sun, measures over 100,000 kilometers in height, so that the entire Earth could easily fit into its outstretched arms. Gas in the filament is funneled by the complex and changing magnetic field of the Sun. After lifting off from the Sun's surface, most of the filamentary gas will eventually fall back. More powerful...

    Veteran actor Marlon Brando has been revealed as the unexpected grandfather of wild rocker Courtney Love in a new book. The singer's mother, psychologist Linda Carroll, claims she has taken DNA tests to confirm she is the Godfather star's daughter. Love, former wife of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, says, "I am incredibly shocked by this news. I have heard Mr. Brando has more than 30 children so I can't imagine how many cousins I have." The link is Linda's mother, novelist Paula Fox. She met Brando in the 1940's through famed drama teacher Stella Adler, and the two enjoyed a...
