    @MARK If Lewinksy had issues with what happened and filed a complaint fine.

    Would she had gotten a fair shake if she had reported it ???? Remember when this story first came to light they started the spin stories about Mrs Lewinsky as being a stalker, crazy and had affair with a married teacher. Then story broke she had the famous blue stained dress, it killed thoses spin stories. Mark do you honestly think if she didnt have that dress, she would have got a fair shake?? She would have been torn apart by the Clinton machine and the press as a crazy stalker.

    Inside the Ring: New al Qaeda threat

    A jihadist website posted a new threat by al Qaeda this week that promises to conduct “shocking” attacks on the United States and the West.

    The posting appeared on the Ansar al Mujahidin network Sunday and carried the headline, “Map of al Qaeda and its future strikes.”

    The message, in Arabic, asks: “Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be?” A translation was obtained by Inside the Ring.

    “The answer for it, in short: The coming strikes by al Qaeda, with God’s Might, will be in the heart of the land of nonbelief, America, and in France, Denmark, other countries in Europe, in the countries that helped and are helping France, and in other places that shall be named by al Qaeda at other times,” the threat states.

    The attacks will be “strong, serious, alarming, earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying.”

    ATF’s Milwaukee sting operation marred by mistakes, failures

    David Salkin unknowingly rented his building at 1220 E. Meinecke Ave. to the ATF, which ran an undercover sting. Burglars broke into the business, ending the operation. Salkin says the ATF owes him $15,000 for damage and unpaid utility bills. The agency has refused to pay.

    A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

    Those working behind the counter, however, weren’t interested in selling anything.

    They were undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives running a storefront sting aimed at busting criminal operations in the city by purchasing drugs and guns from felons.

    But the effort to date has not snared any major dealers or taken down a gang. Instead, it resulted in a string of mistakes and failures, including an ATF military-style machine gun landing on the streets of Milwaukee and the agency having $35,000 in merchandise stolen from its store, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found.

    When the 10-month operation was shut down after the burglary, agents and Milwaukee police officers who participated in the sting cleared out the store but left behind a sensitive document that listed names, vehicles and phone numbers of undercover agents.

    And the agency remains locked in a battle with the building’s owner, who says he is owed about $15,000 because of utility bills, holes in the walls, broken doors and damage from an overflowing toilet.

    The sting resulted in charges being filed against about 30 people, most for low-level drug sales and gun possession counts. But agents had the wrong person in at least three cases. In one, they charged a man who was in prison – as a result of an earlier ATF case – at the time agents said he was selling drugs to them.

    EXCLUSIVE: ANOTHER shake-up at CNN… Will veteran John King be pushed out for political dynamo Jake Tapper?

    New CNN chief Jeff Zucker continues to make sweeping changes at network

    John King has been given an extension to his contract – and NO new deal

    CNN chief national correspondent John King could be ousted from the network in favour of new Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper, MailOnline can reveal.

    King, 49, has already moved out of his office to make way for Tapper, 43, who was poached by new CNN boss Jeff Zucker from ABC.

    And now sources have revealed that King has not signed a new contract – and has instead signed an extension to his existing deal, leaving his future at the network unclear

    Tell you what, I been charting all kinds of new economic data from the trade site I had, I have never in my life seen an economy flatlined like ours is and has been for many months now.

    I don’t say this to make any right or left talking points, but the problem with truth is, it never lies and something just isn’t clicking anymore in the business or finacial aspects Rats.

    There simply isn’t many routes to improve ones finacial futures anymore.

  • Coffee Steve


    My coffee must be to weak this morning

  • d.d.

    Good Morning. Still coasting along at a pretty slow pace.

    Rats, I read the article on the ATF yesterday in the Milwaukee Journal ….could not believe their ineptness.


    @DD, if you look at the data I provided you will see that the gun ban didn’t cause the decrease.

    I know.

    – – –

    Fast forward to now.

    In 2012 police confiscated more than 7,300 illegal guns, including 300 assault rifles. During the first six months of the year, Chicago police confiscated nine times as many illegal guns as the New York Police Department and three guns for every one confiscated by Los Angeles police.


    And yet Chicago, a city with no civilian gun ranges and bans on both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, finds itself laboring to stem a flood of gun violence that contributed to more than 500 homicides last year and at least 40 killings already in 2013, including a fatal shooting of a 15-year-old girl on Tuesday.

    Why so many murders ,violence, & illegal firearms ?

    The latest Chicago Crime Commission gang report is out, and it totals an enormous number of gang members in Chicago—68,000 or more. Chicagoin 2012 was the most gang-ridden city in the country.

    New York has less than a third the number of Chicago’s gang members.

    The gangs have the guns. Taking guns away from law abiding citizens isn’t the answer & leaves them unable to defend themselves.

    It’s not just Chicago.

    The FBI tells us that there are now 1.4 million gang members involved in the 33,000 different gangs that are active inside the United States. The number of gang members in the U.S. has increased by 40 percent since 2009.


    A US Justice Department report from 2009 estimates that the 18th Street gang has a membership of some 30,000 to 50,000 with 80% of them being illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America and is active in 44 cities in 20 states.

    Did you ever notice with the Obamanites its “heads I win tails you lose”–how they spin everything in their favor.Example: if there is bad news in the economy its always someone other than BHO’s fault–however if there is any sliver of good economic news they pounce upon it with glee and proclaim the genius of Obama.Over 4 years later they’re still blaming Bush for all the economic ills,yet even in foreign policy the killing of UBL they take all the credit–as if the many years of pursuit by our intelligence that was led by GW had not existed,as if one day Obama pressed a button from downtown Chicago and launched the operation to kill Bin Laden.
    So it goes with everything reported by the news and interpreted by the public–I ask this: If after 4 years the unemployment rate was at 7.8 which is what BHO inherited,and millions have quit searching for work,would they have one ounce sympathety toward a Republican?No it would be the same old cliche “8 years of Bush” wrecked the economy–I’ll tell you this, Obama wished he had unemployment numbers of the previous administration. Would they make excuses and say hes doing the best he can? No these Obamanites would put the blame squarely on the old white haired guy.

  • Ratboy

    Almost a YEAR from now!! So we got an illegal and he breaks the law in 2011 and the hearing to deport is set for Dec of 2013. I guess that person has no opportunity to continue to break laws right??

    We are sooooooooooo screwed!

    Barack Obama’s uncle to face deportation hearing
    Onyango Obama, the uncle of US president Barack Obama, will learn if he is to be deported from the US to Kenya at a hearing scheduled for Dec 3.

    All the lefties are running around screaming about the DOW doing so good so thing CANT be bad. What the idiots dont realize because they know nothing about investing is that with interest rates at ZERO and real estate still messed up (not as good as they lead you to beleive) and return would be VERY LONG term, the only place to make some quick gains is the market. What has happened is we now again have a false sense of security in the market and to make money you have to go in and out and buy and sell quick and often but the normal person with a couple investments or a 401k not managed by a finacial expert will get KILLED AGAIN when thing go belly up and we ARE on the road to BELLY UP!!
