    This is not the best way to launder money. A lotto winner who bought a winning $26 million SuperLotto Plus ticket at a California gas station last year accidentally washed away her winnings in the laundry, according to KTLA. The unidentified woman had until Thursday to claim her prize, and speculation about the unclaimed fortune made national news in recent days.
  • Bobby Orr's Endorsement of Trump -- A mighty SCORE for MAGA Patriots of New England (with pic)

    New England has produced some famous athletes: Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Tom Brady, Ted Williams. But Bobby Orr holds a special place in the hearts of sports lovers in New England -- especially those who watched Orr play for the Boston Bruins on those low-res TVs of the 60's and 70's. You see, as a kids growing up there, skating and ice hockey were rich personal experiences.  The many ponds and lakes in the region would freeze over in December, November, and January.  And all you needed to do was shovel way the snow on top and you had your...
  • Mainstream Media inadvertently declare Trump the winner last night — by urging Biden to boycott next 2 scheduled debates

    American Thinker ^ | 09/30/2020 | Thomas Lifson
    It's crystal-clear that the media branch of the Democrat party thinks Joe Biden blew it last night and damaged his electoral prospects in the first of three scheduled debates with President Trump.  There seems to be pretty widespread consensus on the left that when it comes to Biden, the less voters know about him by watching him in presidential spotlight, the better. Fox News has assembled a large number of calls on Biden to go back to his basement on the next two debate nights, October 15 and 22. CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer kicked off the network's post-debate coverage by pondering...
  • What if we have a contested election?

    If there is a contested election, Nancy Pelosi DOES NOT automatically become acting-President. There are scenarios under which the House decides the outcome, but that does not automatically mean Pelosi is chosen. She might not even be Speaker of the House by the time Congress would enter the fray. In fact, there are certain ways that having an election decided by the House could be advantageous to President Trump. More on that later. Some of this confusion started when the President asked on Twitter if the election should be delayed. That idea was considered, discussed, and quickly discarded. Short of...

    Billie Winner-Davis doesn't get it, or maybe she does. How can Paul Manafort, chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, get compassionate release from prison — years before his slated release, after lying about his dealings with Russian intelligence assets — while someone who leaked a report about Moscow's efforts to interfere in elections, like her daughter, languish behind bars? And whatever happened to all of those people who used to champion the cause of persecuted whistle-blowers? "As each chapter of this unfolds, I see just how corrupt our system really is, and I see just how powerless the average...

    LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. -- An area veteran is tossing his hat into the political ring, announcing he is running for Congress. Staff Sgt. Earl Granville posted a video on his website Thursday morning explaining why he is running as a Republican for Congress in the 8th District against incumbent Democrat Matt Cartwright. The 8th Congressional District covers much of northeastern Pennsylvania. Granville joined the Pennsylvania National Guard in 2001 and went on to serve tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He was severely injured in an attack in Afghanistan and lost his leg.

    At a time of deep political division in the American electorate, a small group of counties across the nation has shown extraordinary political flexibility, voting for the winner in every presidential election since 1980. These 19 counties—well less than 1% of the nation’s total—have in the last 10 elections backed Republicans for the White House six times and Democrats four times. see https://www.wsj.com/articles/these-counties-backed-every-president-since-reagan-11570786200

    After a spine-tingling vocal and piano performance, crowd favorite Kodi Lee, who is blind and autistic, was crowned the winner of America's Got Talent. The California-born breakout star, 23, was visibly in disbelief as confetti fell and his name was announced. Earlier in the evening, Kodi had sent viewers on an emotional roller coaster as he performed the track You Are The Reason in a stirring duet with Grammy Award-winner Leona Lewis. As he was ultimately named victorious, he said, 'I feel so amazing; unbelievable' as he realized he had won the $1 million prize.

Despite the blue wave of support that showed up for Gillum and across the country, the Trump-backed former prosecutor won of men and older voters, continuing a two-decade-long legacy of Republican governors in the Sunshine State.

    When her mother told her that President Donald Trump had tweeted about her case, Reality Winner braced for the worst. After all, ever since her arrest for leaking a top-secret document, strangers on the internet have called her a traitor, mocked her name and gloated over her legal predicament. But Trump didn’t gloat and he didn’t mock, at least not her. The day after a federal judge handed her a record-setting prison sentence, Winner heard her mother read the president’s words through a phone receiver at the Lincoln County jail, where she’s been incarcerated for more than a year. “Gee,...

    ATLANTA (AP) -- A former government contractor who leaked a classified report on Russian hacking is now thanking President Donald Trump for tweeting about her case, after she once called him a "soulless ginger orangutan." In a Thursday telephone interview from a Georgia jail, Reality Winner told "CBS This Morning" that Trump's tweet was a "breath of fresh air" and it made her laugh. Trump tweeted Aug. 24 that Winner's crime is "small potatoes" compared with "what Hillary Clinton did." Trump closed the tweet by blasting U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions: "So unfair Jeff, Double Standard." In Thursday's interview, Winner...

    A woman accused of leaking classified information on Russia’s role in spreading misinformation during the 2016 election told FBI agents that her frustrations over Fox News prompted her to print out an intelligence report, stuff it in her pantyhose, and sneak it out of the National Security Agency office where she was working. Reality Winner told FBI agents she had repeatedly complained about Fox News being on the TV at the NSA office she worked in, according to a transcript of the interview submitted to court on Wednesday, Politico reported. According to the transcript, the 25-year-old linguist told the FBI...

    Let’s start with a caveat from one of the authors of The Intercept’s story, just so we’re clear on what *isn’t* being alleged. very very important: there’s nothing in the NSA report indicating the actual voting machines or vote tabulations were compromised— Sam Biddle (@samfbiddle) June 5, 2017 Was that the goal, though? The piece is long and difficult to excerpt so I’ll try to summarize. According to the NSA (CBS has confirmed that this is indeed a real NSA report), last August Russia’s military intelligence unit — the GRU — hacked into a software company, likely VR Systems...

    Accused leaker Reality Leigh Winner pleaded not guilty again Thursday to providing classified information to an online news outlet and her defense team signaled they will fight to get as much information as they can to aid her defense in the face of heavy security restrictions. Winner entered U.S District Court in Augusta heavily shackled and accompanied by two U.S. Marshals. She wore a rumpled orange jumpsuit with “inmate” stamped on the back and her blond hair was woven in tight braids across her head. She barked out a clear, “Not guilty” to the superceding indictment she faced in the...

    Not long after top-secret documents from the National Security Agency made their way onto the internet news site The Intercept on Monday, the Justice Department arrested NSA contractor Reality Winner. The 25-year-old Air Force veteran worked on a military base in Georgia, but online she had a long history of being heavily anti-Trump, an apparent social justice warrior, and a supporter of Iran over the U.S. During their evening broadcasts, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) either played down her political attitudes, or outright ignored them as they reported on what she did. {..snip..}
