Co-founder of major Hillary PAC had 'sudden onset and battle with mental health issue'

A wealthy Democratic mega-donor who co-founded the Ready for Hillary PAC, which helped launch Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the White House, has died of a gunshot wound to the head after “a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue,” his family says.

Steve Mostyn, a 46-year-old Texas trial lawyer who reportedly contributed millions to pro-Clinton super PACs, was found dead in his Houston home on Nov. 15.

Mostyn’s death was ruled a suicide by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences. According to the New York Times, Mostyn’s wife, Amber, said her husband died after a “sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.”

WATCH: Hillary Praises Bill For Staying Off Twitter As President — Before It Was Created

“He didn’t tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a Clinton Foundation event on Saturday where she complained about people spreading misinformation about her as she delivered some misinformation of her own.

The event, which commemorated the 25th anniversary of Bill’s victory in the 1992 presidential election, featured both Clintons and their former campaign manager, James Carville.

Hillary blamed Fox News and other news outlets for many of both her and her husband's problems and complained that right-leaning websites were responsible for spreading misinformation and alternative facts — echoing her mid-1990s claim that a "vast right wing conspiracy" was involved in destroying the Clintons' reputations.


Democratic Party Bigwig Resigns Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

The chairman of the Florida Democratic party resigned on Friday after six women came forward to accuse him of creating a hostile work environment by making sexually-charged comments.

“When my personal situation becomes distracting to our core mission of electing Democrats and making Florida better, it is time for me to step aside,” said Stephen Bittel, a Miami Beach businessman with close ties to Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

“I have to apologize for all who have felt uncomfortable during my tenure at the Democratic party,” Bittel continued, adding that he will work to elect a successor.


Late-Night Evil Clowns

Late-night comics have become the frontmen and gatekeepers of the Democrat party establishment

While it may seem trivial to dwell on diversions such as late night talk shows, these forums have become cultural war zones.

With the influence of mainstream media waning, the rich and self-righteous teleprompter-reading late-night hosts have become the new spokesmen for the establishment, and for the astroturf “resistance.”

Predictable political footballs are thrown out to the audience on a daily basis as the hosts extend Orwell’s two-minutes-of-hate to an endless-tirade-of-hate.


How Bob Menendez’s friends helped him steer clear of jail

“Gifts to cultivate friendship are not bribes,” Abbe Lowell said in his closing in defense of Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez — and enough jurors agreed to result in a hung jury and a mistrial.

The Biz Markie defense — he’s just a friend — worked. Lowell was worth every penny of the $4.5 million raised and spent by Menendez’s legal defense trust.

But the hung jury doesn’t change the facts:

Menendez’s co-defendant Salomon Melgen left the courtroom and went back to jail, where he isawaiting sentencing on 67 counts of Medicare fraud.

Menendez enjoyed ready access to Melgen’s private jets and luxury resorts financed by that Medicare fraud — and the New Jersey senator went all the way up the chain to the secretary of health and human services to keep the money flowing.

He got visas for Melgen’s supermodel girlfriends and he tried to steer a lucrative port security contract to the eye doctor who had no security background. Customs and Border Protection official Stephanie Talton testified that she found it “odd” that Menendez would “ask us to stop our law enforcement mission.”


Saudi 'Corruption' Probe Widens: Dozens Of Military Officials Arrested

After jailing dozens of members of the royal family, and extorting numerous prominent businessmen, 32-year-old Saudi prince Mohammed bin Salman has widened his so-called 'corruption' probe further still.

The Wall Street Journal reports that at least two dozen military officers, including multiple commanders, recently have been rounded up in connection to the Saudi government’s sweeping corruption investigation, according to two senior advisers to the Saudi government.

Additionally, several prominent businessmen also were taken in by Saudi authorities in recent days.


Getting more 'wolflike' is the key to the future for coyotes

The future of the coyotes that roam forests, cities and suburbs from Newfoundland to Virginia could hinge on the animals becoming the 'wolves' of the East Coast.

And humans better get used to them.

Coyotes have lived in the East since the 1930s, and recent genetic tests have shown they are actually a mixture of coyote, wolf and dog.


Menendez Presumed Innocent, Moore Presumed Guilty

The corruption trial of Sen. Robert Menendez, D-NJ, has ended in a mistrial, and one is tempted to wonder if any of the jurors were swayed by the Menendez character witnesses such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC. A mistrial is not an acquittal, and Menendez retains that proverbial presumption of innocence, a privilege not extended by Graham or others in the GOP to Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore

Most Americans don’t even know Menendez was on trial thanks to a legacy media that censors accusations against Democrats, and if it does mention the accusations doesn’t mention that the accused is in fact a Democrat. But they’ve heard a lot of allegations about Roy Moore which the likes of Graham accept as gospel.

You may also have not heard of the actual arrest of a candidate for Congress, Democrat David Alcon, who is running for an open seat in New Mexico when is not stalking women. He, too, will be granted the presumption of innocence denied Roy Moore. Will the Democrats disavow him and cut off funds? Will they refuse to seat him if elected or expel him from Congress? As the Daily Caller reports:


Roy Moore: Deploy Military to Fortify U.S.-Mexico Border

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — In a policy interview here, Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore advocated for the Trump administration to immediately deploy the U.S. military to fortify the U.S.-Mexico border while plans for a wall are being strategized.

“I believe that we can stop illegal aliens from coming across our border within a matter of a week using the United States military to support the border patrol,” Moore stated. “That is not a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. It has been done by numerous presidents.”

“And then we have the money, as soon as possible we can build a wall to stop these illegal aliens from coming across our border. I think we should act on these things and we should do them as soon as possible,” he said.

“We need border security and we can have border security by simply taking action to do it,” Moore added. “But right now, you can’t get Congress moving except on things that they want for their own home districts.”


Images show Zimbabwe when it was Africa's bread basket

These fascinating pictures show a time when Zimbabwe was the bread basket of Africa long before it was left impoverished by Robert Mugabe.

Pictures from the late 1890s and early 1900s show farms, mines and railways being constructed in the southern African nation, when it was known as Rhodesia.

They also show protests calling for independence from colonialist rule as the 20th century progressed before a bloody liberation war started in 1972, led by Mugabe.

The dictator, now 93 and having been in effective control of Zimbabwe since 1980, is facing an uncertain future after he was placed under house arrest and put under pressure to end his 37-year rule.

Zimbabwe still has the world's third largest reserves of platinum and was once a huge agricultural exporter sending wheat, tobacco, and corn to the rest of the continent and beyond from its fertile farmland.

But under Mugabe's leadership, the country's mining and tourism-driven economy has been laid to waste. Hyperinflation has wiped out savings, unemployment is sky-high and economic output has halved since 2000 while seven in ten in the landlocked country of 16million are stuck in poverty.


Juanita Broaddrick Book On Bill Clinton

Juanita Broaddrick is coming out with a new book detailing her rape allegations against former President Bill Clinton.

“The time has come for me to talk about my life and abuse in full,” Broaddrick wrote on Twitter. “I am working on a book with [journalist Nick Lulli] to set the record straight on what Bill Clinton did to me.”

The book’s title, “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That,” is a reference to what Broaddrick says Clinton told her after he allegedly raped her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978. The book’s subtitle: “How I survived being raped by Bill Clinton.”

“This is the part that always stays in my mind – the way he put on his sunglasses,” Broaddrick told the Wall Street Journal in 1999. “Then he looked at me and said ‘You better put some ice on that’. Then he left.”


Corn grows all too well in the swamp

Corn has taken root in the swamp that surrounds Congress. It has meant big bucks for Big Corn, but most everyone else is paying the price.

The Renewable Fuel Standard of 2005 required gasoline manufacturers to lace their products with biofuels — primarily corn-based ethanol, but also soybean-based biodiesel.

The amount they are forced to add has risen steadily, year after year. And it is scheduled to keep rising through 2022, when 36 billion gallons of renewables will be mixed into the nation’s gas supplies. After that, unelected bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency get to decide.

The entire program is economically irrational. Biofuels are more expensive to make, so the program forces a pricier fuel into the economy.


Soros-tied donor network to ramp up efforts to elect left-wing prosecutors

The Democracy Alliance, a secretive left-wing dark money donor network whose members each direct hundreds of thousands in funding to progressive groups, is set to ramp up efforts to elect far-left prosecutors across the nation, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The documents, which were gathered from the Democracy Alliance's three-day fall investment conference last week at the posh La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., show that electing ultra-progressive prosecutors in cities across the country is of high importance to the deep-pocketed donors as part of their "resistance" efforts and 2018 strategy.

Closed events were held at the summit on issues ranging from using the state of California as a progressive template to expand elsewhere, to the "importance of prosecutor races."

"Progressive prosecutors are winning -- from Florida to Pennsylvania, Texas to Illinois," a flyer for a session reads. "Bold reform candidates have been propelled by movement players and driven record voter turnout of African Americans, Latinos and Millennials -- and are shifting the political narrative."

[FLASHBACK: A small tax-exempt political group with ties to wealthy liberals like billionaire financier George Soros has quietly helped elect 11 reform-minded progressive Democrats as secretaries of state to oversee the election process in battleground states and keep Republican “political operatives from deciding who can vote and how those votes are counted.”]

NYT star reporter suspended after sex harassment claim

The New York Times has suspended star White House correspondent Glenn Thrush amid allegations he sexually harassed co-workers, and the journalist is blaming his bad behavior on the bottle.

Word of disciplinary action against Thrush, a frequent critic of President Trump who is also an MSNBC contributor, first came in an article detailing his alleged misconduct on the website Vox.

Thrush, who made a name for himself at Politico before joining the Times in 2016, has been portrayed on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” by Bobby Moynihan. He told Vox that he hasn’t had any alcohol since June when he “upset” one of his accusers after a night of “drinking heavily.”


Dershowitz: Mueller Is 'Going Well Beyond His Authority as Prosecutor'

Alan Dershowitz warned that the special counsel appointed to investigate the Trump campaign's connections to Russia is turning constitutional actions into crimes.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is "going well beyond his authority as a prosecutor," the Harvard law professor emeritus and lifelong Democrat told "Outnumbered Overtime" on Monday.

Mueller has requested documents from the Justice Department regarding the president's firing of FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russia probe. He is scheduled to interview several White House officials.

"The president is entitled to fire the head of the FBI," Dershowitz said. "The president is entitled to direct his attorney general who to investigate, who not to."

Lois Lerner Wants Testimony to Stay Sealed

Former IRS official Lois Lerner and her deputy Holly Paz filed a motion seeking to keep sealed in perpetuity their testimony in a case that claimed the IRS targeted the tea party.

Revealing their testimony would "expose them and their families to harassment and a credible risk of violence and physical harm," according to court documents reviewed by Fox News.

"Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassments. Returning Mss. Lerner and Paz to the media spotlight places them at risk, regardless of what they actually said in those depositions," the documents said, according to The Washington Times.

The Justice Department told Fox News Monday that the Lerner and Paz testimonies remain sealed.


DOJ: No plans to charge Lois Lerner in IRS scandal

The Trump administration has no plans to charge former IRS official Lois Lerner over her role in the Tea Party targeting scandal, the Justice Department said Friday in response to calls by Republican lawmakers to revisit the case.

In a letter to the lawmakers, the Justice Department said that "reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence."

This past April, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., had asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take a "fresh look" at the case.


Alabama Democrat Doug Jones on Wall: ‘It’s Too Expensive

Alabama Democrat and Senate candidate Doug Jones has officially come out against President Trump’s plan to construct a border wall along the United States-Mexico border.

In a statement to Fox News, Jones slammed Trump’s most prominent immigration initiative, the building of a border wall on the southern border to stem the flow of illegal immigration, Mexican cartel activity, and drug flow into the U.S.

“No, I do not. I think it’s too expensive,” Jones told Fox News when asked if he supported the construction of the border wall.

“I don’t think we need to be spending $20 billion dollars,” Jones continued, blasting the border wall. “I want to put it on healthcare, I want to get tax cuts for the middle class.”

Jones supposed concerns of the cost of the border wall fail to mention the annual cost of illegal immigration..

Judicial Watch Sues State Department for Podesta Group Records

Judicial Watch has announced that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State for all records about the Podesta Group Inc. and the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which have both been connected to the recent special counsel indictment of Paul Manafort.

Judicial Watch sued after the State Department failed to respond to a September 13, 2017, FOIA request for:

All records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any principal, employee, or representative of Podesta Group, Inc.

All records produced related to any meetings or telephonic communications between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any principal, employee, or representative of Podesta Group, Inc.

All records regarding the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.

The FOIA request covers the timeframe of January 1, 2012 to the present.

The Podesta Group, formerly led by Anthony Podesta, and the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine have been mentioned in connection with the criminal indictment of Paul Manafort by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“Mueller’s special counsel operation seems more interested in the alleged foreign ties of the Trump Team, rather than Hillary Clinton’s associates,” stated Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch aims to figure out the truth of what exactly the Podesta Group was doing with the Obama State Department.”

'Consent' abolishes responsibility of men to behave like gentlemen

Question: If the woman in the photo of Al Franken (where he’s groping her while she sleeps) would have given “consent,” then would this be right and good? If morality is really nothing more than mutual “consent” and Sen. Franken could prove that she said this was okay to do while she lay sleeping, he would have nothing — absolutely nothing — to be “ashamed” of. Right?

Today’s culture of “consent” places all responsibility for moral judgment on women and completely exonerates men to live as cads (as long as they can find women to say they don’t care). “Consent” assumes that men are no longer capable of governing themselves by an immutable standard of what is right and what is wrong.

Morality is no longer fixed but always in flux. Right behavior is not a constant but rather simply a mater of approval. If the woman consents to being groped then it’s right. If she doesn’t then it’s wrong. If she wants to have sex then a man can have at it with fury. All a man needs to do is find a woman — any woman — who will “consent” to his libidinous appetites and what was wrong five minutes ago, now becomes right.

This is a world of no self-evident truths — a world of the created rather than the Creator. It is a world where the exact same actions of Al Franken, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton are deemed moral, if consented to by their prey, but yet abhorrent if not.


Images Of Al Franken's Sexual Behavior

Sen. Al Franken is in hot water after a series of bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against him surfaced over the past week.

Leeann Tweeden, a California broadcaster, has accused Franken of sexually molesting her in 2006.

A photo of Franken groping Tweeden surfaced in light of the allegations.


Court Documents Raise Significant Questions About Accusations Against Roy Moore

Court documents involving Leigh Corfman, who says that Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore tried to engage in a sexual encounter with her when she was 14, raise questions about the timeline and narrative of Corfman’s accusations against the politician.

Those accusations were first publicly disclosed in a Washington Post story citing Corfman and her mother, Nancy Wells, as saying that in early 1979, Roy Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, allegedly asked Wells to watch her fourteen-year-old daughter while Wells went into a courtroom for a custody hearing.

Corfman claims that Moore asked the young Corfman for her number. “Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden,” the Post story states, referring to her mother’s home in Gadsden. Corfman’s parents were divorced.

Regarding the original court hearing where Corfman says that Moore asker her for her number while Wells went inside the courtroom, the Post reported that it “confirmed that her mother attended a hearing at the courthouse in February 1979 through divorce records.”

A thorough search of court documents finds one court case in February 1979—a case that took place on February 21, 1979. The Post failed to tell readers that at that February 21, 1979, court case Wells voluntarily gave up custody of Corfman to Corfman’s father, Robert R. Corfman. The two had been divorced since 1974. The custody case was amicable and involved a joint petition by both parents.

The Post further did not tell readers that as a result of the joint petition to change custody, the court ordered the 14-year-old Corfman to move to her father’s house starting on March 4, 1979. Court documents show the father’s address in Ohatchee, and not in Gadsden, where her mother lived and where Corfman says the meetings with Moore took place.

Ex-Boyfriend of Roy Moore Accuser: I Don’t Believe Her

Birmingham, ALABAMA — A minister who says that he dated Beverly Young Nelson at around the same time that Young claims to have been assaulted by senatorial candidate Roy Moore says that he does not believe his ex-girlfriend about the allegations.

The former boyfriend, Jeff DeVine, attended high school with Young and is currently in Thailand, where he runs DeVine Ministries with his wife and twin daughters. He says that as part of his ministry, which focuses on rescuing children, he has worked with victims of rape and other trauma.

A high school classmate of Nelson’s who spoke to Breitbart News remembers DeVine and Nelson briefly dating around 1977. DeVine also provided a copy of his high school yearbook inscribed with a lengthy message by Nelson. The inscription was signed by “Beverly Young,” using Nelson’s maiden name.

Princeton Scholars: Opioid Crisis, Alcoholism, Suicide to Blame for Rising White Working Class Mortality Rate

Economist Angus Deaton and Princeton University Professor Anne Case told the Wall Street Journal that the opioid crisis, alcoholism, and suicide continue to aggravate the American white working class mortality rate.

Dr. Deaton suggested that the country’s white community split into two camps: white Americans with bachelor’s degrees continue to thrive, while American whites without a bachelor’s degree face increasingly dire circumstances.

Dr. Case explained that America’s white working class continues to face higher mortality rates through suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism.


Mom charged after putting recording device in daughter’s backpack

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The mother of a Norfolk student turned to 10 On Your Side after she was charged by police.

“I tried to be fair, but it’s not fair,” said Sarah Sims. “There is nothing fair about this.”

In late September, Sims says she had enough. She tells 10 On Your Side her 9-year-old daughter was getting bullied at Ocean View Elementary. She says repeated calls and emails to the school went un-returned.

“The thing that bothers me the most is that I am yet to get a response from anyone in the administration,” Sims added.

Sims says she took actions into her own hands. She wanted to prove that nothing was being done to help her 4th grade daughter. She put a digital recorder into her daughter’s backpack in hopes of catching audio from inside the classroom.

“If I’m not getting an answer from you what am I left to do?” she asked.


Illegal Aliens Killed Border Agent by Crushing in His Skull with Rocks, Says NBPC

Exclusive details have emerged on the early morning attack against Border Patrol agents that left one agent dead and another hospitalized in serious condition on November, 19 2017. Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the death and injuries and now the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) says that their agents on the ground have stated that the agents were tracking a group of illegal aliens who then beat the agents with rocks until one was killed and the other hospitalized.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, also president of the NBPC, stated, “What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”

Agent Judd continued, “The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

States With Lower Taxes on Business and Personal Income Have Higher Economic Growth

Americans are moving from high-tax states to those with no taxes and less spending

States with lower taxes on businesses and personal income have higher economic growth, according to an economist at the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Jonathan Williams, an economist at the council, spoke at an event on the Hill Monday and used two states, Kansas and North Carolina, to illustrate how raising and cutting taxes can affect the local state economy in either a positive or negative way.

Williams explained that while many try to suggest Kansas's economic difficulty has been due to tax cuts they have implemented in the past, the data suggest otherwise.

"Based on our ranking of rich states, poor states of economic competitiveness, Kansas started out about 10 years ago at 29th in America," Williams explained. "After tax reform, about 2013, it bolted up to number 11."

Additionally, data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis find that from 2012 to 2015 Kansas had annualized job growth of 1.3 percent per 10,000 residents.


Fifth SEIU Official Ousted After Being Accused of Sexual Assault

Another official at the Service Employees International Union has been ousted following accusations of sexual assault.

Pedro Malave was first fired from a local Boston-area SEIU chapter in 2014, only to be later rehired at two other local chapters in California, the labor website Payday Report reported last week. Politico‘s Morning Shift newsletter flagged the report on Monday and confirmed that the locals dismissed Malave after they learned of his past alleged conduct.

In the summer of 2014, the Boston-area 32BJ SEIU Local 615 investigated Malave, then the assistant director, after a co-worker, Daria Alladio, accused him of sexual assault. She alleged that, in 2008, Malave stuck his hand up her skirt and "put his hand in-between her butt cheeks," according to the Payday Report..


U.S. Strikes Taliban Drug Facilities in Strategy Shift to Target Revenue Sources

U.S. and Afghan forces have conducted more than two-dozen joint airstrikes against opium production facilities in Afghanistan under a new campaign to target Taliban financing, the top U.S. general in the country said Monday.

Army Gen. John Nicholson said the Sunday night assaults against drug labs in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province will continue in the coming days. Nicholson said the Taliban makes at least $200 million a year through opium production.

The Pentagon aired videos at a press conference of the raids involving American B-52s and an F-22 bomber annihilating insurgent opium factories.

Why Is The DOJ Downplaying Reports Of Proof Linking Obama And Clinton To Russian Corruption

Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.

However, The Hill's John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels.

FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidenciary links betweeen corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton...


Wait….What? Op-Ed Claims Only White People Have Access To Going Outdoors

Going outside and enjoying time in the outdoors is now white supremacy. Yes, you heard that correctly, because apparently minorities don’t have access to nature the same way white people do.

A student (naturally) at Pitzer College in California has declared that “people of color have been denied access to the outdoors” in an op-ed for her school’s newspaper.

I can’t believe I’m typing these words.

The student directed her ire at two of the college’s nature groups, claiming that “racial boundaries” keep minority students from feeling “at ease” in the outdoors.

“Both clubs claim to be accessible,” he writes. “While trips are open to any student wanting to go, not everyone feels the same ease in entering the outdoors. This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries.”

It’s worth noting that the person who wrote this is white, and claims that the term “outdoorsy” makes people think of white men. Now I might be in that particular minority here, but when I hear the term “outdoorsy” I cringe because it doesn’t sound like it should be a word, but then I think of my mother who has always been interested in that kind of thing. Gardening, going to the mountains, seeing all of nature. I don’t think of some random white guy with a backpack and a tent. That’s just weird.

Governor Larry Hogan Announces Construction Start for the Final Phase of US 113 Widening

Long-Awaited Project Will Enhance Safety and Ease Congestion in Worcester County

Governor Larry Hogan today announced the start of construction on the final phase of widening US 113 (Worcester Highway). This $82.3 million congestion relief project widens US 113 from two lanes to four lanes with a median from MD 365 (Public Landing Road) to Five Mile Branch Road. Governor Hogan added the funding for Worcester County’s top transportation priority in June 2015 as part of the administration’s additional $2 billion investment in roads and bridges across the state.

“This project has been an ongoing priority for thousands of residents and travelers for decades,” said Governor Hogan. “With its completion, this highway will be safer for residents and visitors, encourage tourism, and support economic development not only in Worcester County, but across our entire state. Our administration remains fully committed to bringing congestion relief to all of Maryland.”

Phase Four improvements include a four-lane divided highway with 12-foot lanes and modifying access for residential and commercial properties with service roads, constructing a new bridge over Purnell Branch, stormwater management, and a center median.

This final phase of the dualization of US 113 is a design-build project where the state completes the initial project design and a private sector team is procured to finalize the design and construct the project. The Design-Build Team, Wallace Montgomery and Allan Myers, was awarded the $51.4 million project. The state used an innovative procurement approach that considered price, time, and impacts to the public in award of the project. As a result, the Design-Build Team has committed to completing the project six months sooner and at nearly $2 million less than estimated. The new lanes will open to traffic on the 4.3-mile section in fall 2019, with disincentives to the contractor per day beyond.

Hillary is toast: Scandals finally catch up with Clintons

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc.

Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by Clintons, Republicans will miss her. Only Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have contributed as generously to GOP fund-raising efforts in recent years, or so energized voters.

Mrs. Clinton is finally being held to account, at least in the court of public opinion, where it may matter most. As charges of sexual aggression swirl around prominent figures on the left and right, Bill Clinton’s gross and possibly criminal behavior is getting a second look. New York’s junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand took the revisionism to a whole new level when she told the New York Times that President Clinton should have stepped down when his sexual relationship with 22-year old staffer Monica Lewinsky came to light.



The utter hypocrisy that is being demonstrated in the Bundy Ranch trial by those who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies is quite telling as to the level of corruption we are seeing in our land today. Furthermore, it is demonstrating that many of those who have taken that oath not only don’t know what the Constitution says, but also have become the very domestic enemies they proclaim to oppose because of their ignorance.

First, take this update from Guerilla Media Network’s Deb Jordan.

“Judge Gloria Navarro presiding over USA vs Cliven Bundy says, if the Prosecution does not call Daniel P. Love to the stand she is leaning heavily toward not allowing the defense to call him to the stand either,” Jordan wrote. “In a shocking statement made outside the earshot of the Jury this past Friday, Navarro said that she has no obligation to allow the defense to call the former Special Agent in Charge of the Bundy cattle impoundment to the stand for the purpose of impeaching his testimony to the grand jury.”


Newly surfaced pics show Al Franken grabbing Arianna Huffington’s breasts and butt

Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffington on her bottom and breasts.

The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back.

An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand.
“Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn’t enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away.”


John Rosemond: Your kids should not be the most important

I recently asked a married couple who have three kids, none of whom are yet teens, “Who are the most important people in your family?”

Like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they answered, “Our kids!”

“Why?” I then asked. “What is it about your kids that gives them that status?” And like all good moms and dads of this brave new millennium, they couldn't answer the question other than to fumble with appeals to emotion.

So, I answered the question for them: “There is no reasonable thing that gives your children that status.”

I went on to point out that many—if not most—of the problems they're having with their kids—typical stuff, these days—are the result of treating their children as if they, their marriage, and their family exist because of the kids when it is, in fact, the other way around. Their kids exist because of them and their marriage and thrive because the parents have created a stable family.


Bill Clinton Still Silent About Flights On Pedophile’s Sex Plane

Former President Bill Clinton continues to remain silent about the 26 flights he took aboard convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” which reportedly offered underage girls to passengers to rape.

Fox News wrote in 2016 that the Lolita Express, a Boeing 727 jet, was “reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.”

Clinton flew on some trips where the flight logs showed only the first names of female passengers.

The Daily Caller News Foundation contacted the Clinton Presidential Library last week to obtain information about the former president’s relationship with billionaire Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted of soliciting sex from underage girls as young as 14.

Citizen of the Year?

'Proof of Citizenship' Voting Laws May Surge Under Trump

Emboldened both by President Donald Trump’s claim that millions of noncitizens voted in 2016 and by his creation of a panel to investigate the alleged fraud, lawmakers in several states want to require people registering to vote to provide proof of their citizenship – even though federal registration forms don’t require it.

This year at least four states – Kansas, Maryland, Texas and Virginia – considered proof of citizenship measures, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. That means residents must provide documentation such as a passport or birth certificate when registering to vote.

But that gets confusing. In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states may not require proof of citizenship for those who use the federal registration form, which states are required to accept. It didn’t bar them from requiring such documents for state elections, so states can set up a dual registration system—in which voters who lack proof of citizenship can register and vote in only federal elections.


Public Defenders Fight Back Against Budget Cuts, Growing Caseloads

Public defenders have complained for decades they’ve got too many cases and not enough money — or time — to do their clients justice.

Now, more public defense advocates are suing states for more funding. Overwhelmed public defenders also are increasingly trying other tactics: refusing to take on new cases, raising money through crowdfunding, even trying to assign a case to a sitting governor.

“It’s been a huge national failure,” said William Leahy, New York’s chief public defender, of the whole public defense system, which provides legal representation for poor people charged with more serious crimes, a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

With declining budgets and crushing caseloads, juggling clients has become a Sisyphean task, public defenders say. In New Orleans, for example, 60 public defenders manage roughly 20,000 cases a year. And overburdened public defenders, they argue, can’t mount a vigorous defense for their clients.

Race for 2020 Democratic nomination already getting started in New Hampshire

HOLLIS, NH – Not one year into the Trump administration, New Hampshire already is buzzing with the anticipation of 2020 and playing host to an early screen test for a parade of potential and declared White House hopefuls.

The state Democratic Party’s annual Kennedy-Clinton fall fundraising gala – held on a cold and windy November night this past Friday, in part to celebrate their 2017 victories and look ahead to the midterms – featured two headliners with an eye on the next presidential race.

Maryland Rep. John Delaney, who over the summer launched a stunningly early 2020 presidential campaign, told the audience that “hyper partisan politics is tearing our country apart.”

The message from the three-term congressman was “what we really need a president to do is to bring us together, to restore civility in politics and respect in public service.”

Eight-term Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, also a potential contender for the next Democratic presidential nomination, preached to the crowd that “the Democratic Party’s got to be the party that builds the new system.”

“We need to build systems that put people first,” he added.

Democrats' depravity laid bare by Bill Clinton

With profiles in courage like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in powerful positions of authority around here, is it any wonder that men and women of America are living in such respectful bliss and harmony with one another?

Nearly thirty years after credible and even verified reports of grand Democrat poobah Bill Clinton molesting women and so much worse, Mrs. Gillibrand has finally decided the monster should have been thrown out of the White House for his lecherous assaults.

“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she said when pressed about whether Mr. Clinton should have been hounded from office.

In other words, Ken Starr and the Republicans of the 1990s were exactly right.

Then Mrs. Gillibrand offered a truly astonishing defense of the most famous rapist in American politics.
