The FBI is notifying unsuspecting targets after the release of an ISIS hit list that includes thousands of New Yorkers. The names on the list were released last week. ISIS has urged urged followers of the militant group to target these 3,600 individuals and to facilitate that the hacker group has posted their personal information with the demand that "we want them #Dead."
Is the establishment's fervent hatred of Donald Trump starting a U-turn? It's still too early to know, however at least one core Republican, former house speaker John Boehner, has made it very clear he is not a fan of Ted Cruz. At all. So much so that according to NBC the former Republican House Speaker told an audience at Stanford University Wednesday that the Texas senator is "Lucifer in the flesh" and a "miserable son of a bitch... I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life."
Deputies were called to the company's corporate headquarters on Wednesday morning after a person was found dead, but only few details were immediately available. Multiple police vehicles could be seen at the campus.
Moments ago, former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison in his hush-money case by a judge who called him a "serial child molester" and ordered him to enroll in a sex-offender treatment program. As NBC reports, Hastert, 74, was accused of abusing four boys between the ages of 14 and 17 when he was a coach at Yorkville High School decades ago. While he was not charged with any sexual crimes because of the statute of limitations, but he pleaded guilty to making illegal cash withdrawals to pay off one of his accusers.
James Clapper, who is charged with overseeing the declassification, reportedly said that it is “realistic” that the 28-page section of the 9/11 Commission Report would be available as early as June. “We are in the position of trying to coordinate interagency position on the declassification of the 28 pages,” he told attendees of an event sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, The Hill reported on Monday.
Everything is going wrong for the GOP establishment. Yesterday, 'the alliance' broke down within hours of being conjured into life, and today the anti-Trump-ers face disaster as a new NBC poll shows Donald Trump has reached 50 percent support from Republicans and Republican-leaners nationally for the first time since the campaign began. As Goldman notes, after a brief period of uncertainty following the Wisconsin primary earlier this month, the Republican nomination once again looks like it is Mr. Trump’s to lose.
How bad is Hillary Clinton’s image? This bad...
Are children safe in public schools? If the answer seems pretty obvious, it is confirmation that society has definitely gone to extremes that would not have been recognizable in past decades of American history. Now Denver-area schools are becoming the first to guard their student populations with military-style semiautomatic rifles, and things certainly appear to be escalating. But are they being protected from potential violence, or indoctrinated in a police state society where even children are under sharp suspicion, and misbehavior is criminalized? Can we see down the road as to whether this is likely to tend towards more freedom, or less? More armed citizens is positive, but more guns only in the hands of police - private and public, may prove not be.
The inability to become aroused over any candidate for POTUS, put forth by either party...
...it was "a firey, catastrophic attempt at a launch that was unsuccessful."
Dr. Ed Ward has documented what he believes is strong evidence suggesting that up to three thermonuclear devices were detonated at the World Trade Center site on 9/11.
When Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery on March 29 for allegedly grabbing and pulling down former Breitbart employee Michelle Fields, it made all the headlines on March 29. Not so much today when moments ago when Florida authorities decided they won't proceed with their case against Lewandowski, saying there wasn't enough evidence to convict him of attacking a reporter at a rally last month.
More is always better, right?
As Tax Day (April 18th) looms, we are once again reminded of how deeply the government reaches into our pockets. However, as Bloomberg details, there is one way to reduce your income tax burden - Switch states.

Our system was never intended to be like this. Our founders hated taxes, and they fought a very bitter war to escape the yoke of oppressive taxation. During his very first inaugural address, Thomas Jefferson clearly expressed what he thought about taxes... “A wise and frugal government... shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” Why couldn’t we have listened to him?
