armored car robbery

FBI agents on Wednesday dug up the Fontana backyard of an armored-truck driver convicted of pulling off a $1-million theft, and recovered about $600,000. Agents recovered the pile of carefully wrapped $20 and $100 bills in a large bin after excavating the yard of the suburban home in the 9300 block of Marcona Avenue, said Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman. The home was owned by Cesar Yanez, one of the two armored-truck drivers who carried out a scheme last year to slip more than $1 million out of the stacks of cash they ferried from a Bank of America distribution

(Photo) NORFOLK, Va.- The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington made its maiden departure from Norfolk to join the U.S. Navy´s 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility. About 1,200 Sailors and Marines boarded the Arlington on Thursday as part of the U.S. Armed Forces rotation to support maritime security operations in international waters. San Antonio-class ships are designed for both the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps as a means for transporting heavy equipment and delivering Marines ashore. Commanding Officer Capt. Sean Bailey praised the deployment as a culmination of the hard work done to prepare

Obama Manufactures a Crisis

Of all Barack Obama’s qualities, among the most striking is his combination of self-righteousness and lack of self-awareness. Consider his news conference Friday. Mr. Obama attempted again to shift responsibility for the weakest recovery in recorded U.S. economic history onto Republicans. “We would be doing even better,” the president said, “if we didn’t have to keep on dealing with unnecessary crises in Congress every few months.” Yet Mr. Obama now threatens to veto the annual defense-authorization bill unless Congress increases nondefense spending and allows the transfer of terrorists from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which the president has pledged

Lalish, Iraq — Sitting on a shabby green sofa somewhere in the ISIS-controlled city of Mosul, Iraq, the militants laugh and joke as one of them films their excited chatter. "Today is the female sex slave market day, which has been ordained," explains a skinny, black-clad Jihadi, gesturing at the camera. "With Allah´s permission, each will get a share," promises another of the fighters. "Where is my Yazidi girl?" asks the first, a wide grin splitting his straggly-bearded face. (Snip) "He showed me a letter and said, ´This shows any captured women will become Muslim if 10 ISIS fighters rape her.´

MANCHESTER — In a rousing introduction to his keynote speech, Vietnam veteran and former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons welcomed fellow veterans Thursday at the opening ceremony for The Wall That Heals. "My name is Rob Simmons and I´m proud to be a Vietnam veteran!" Simmons told a cheering crowd gathered in Center Memorial Park. As applause continued, the former Army officer who served 19 months in Vietnam kept his voice raised and asked veterans to stand, saying, "Thank you for your service. Welcome home."

An Internet address originating from the Department of Homeland Security was tied to entries made on the Wikipedia pages of North Carolina Rep. Renee Ellmers and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, alleging that the two Republicans were having an affair. It is unclear if someone at the federal agency actually was behind the edits, which were first noted by Washington Free Beacon reporter Lachlan Markay. But both changes — McCarthy’s and Ellmers’ — show that a user at the IP address,, made them on Thursday. That address comes from DHS’ offices in Springfield, Va.

Trey Gowdy: Democrats thwarting Benghazi investigation

Rather than cooperate, Democrats from the start have tried to thwart the Benghazi probe from within, Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a letter released Thursday that accused Democrats of bad faith and also announced the release of emails that call into question the relationship between former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her associate Sidney Blumenthal. Mr. Gowdy said it was Democrats, not Republicans, who “selectively leaked information” to try to set the political narrative about the probe. Mr. Gowdy said Democrats have been more interested in that than in actually participating in the investigation, and he accused the top



Oklahoma prisoner was given wrong drug

The wrong drug was used to execute a man convicted of raping and murdering a baby, it has been revealed. Oklahoma used potassium acetate - not potassium chloride, as required under state protocol - to kill Charles Warner, who said his body felt like it was ´on fire´ as he was put to death in January. The state´s governor issued a last-minute stay of execution last week to a murderer after officials discovered that potassium acetate had been delivered for his injection too. Warner was executed for the 1997 killing of 11-month-old girl Adrianna Waller in Oklahoma City.

If not McCarthy, who? Republicans

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy´s stunning decision Thursday to withdraw from the race for speaker leaves Republicans scrambling to find that elusive candidate who can unite the divided conference and actually win a majority on the floor. The California Republican´s abrupt withdrawal is a testament to how undesirable John Boehner´s job really is. As GOP leader, McCarthy immediately was deemed the front-runner and was thought to have more than enough support to win the party nomination in a vote originally set for Thursday afternoon. Now, it´s unclear whether more candidates will enter the race or whether the field will stand as is,

The House Select Committee on Benghazi will be making public next week new documents that demonstrate Sidney Blumenthal was seeking business in Libya as he was advising then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on U.S. policy in the country. According to a letter from Chairman Trey Gowdy to Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the committee, at least once Clinton sought to aid Blumenthal´s business interests in Libya. The 13-page letter also details new concerns about compromised security on Clinton´s email, noting that in one unsecured email Blumenthal appears to name a top CIA source in Libya --a revelation that

A new mysterious website exposing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his immigration positions ahead of the 2016 primaries has hit the web. At this time, it’s unclear who made the website—but it details in depth the immigration transgressions of Sen. Rubio in a way that has yet to be done on the campaign trail. As 2016 GOP frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump marshals his forces to take on Rubio—the new Washington establishment candidate given that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s campaign is floundering—this website could become a central part of the campaign. The URL for the site is RubioAmnestyPlan.Com, and could

Reporters and columnists around the country are eagerly anticipating the fall of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, even as he continues to lead the polls and shows no signs of waning yet. Michael Barbaro, a political writer for The New York Times, wrote Wednesday that Trump "seems to be wearing out" among voters and the conservative media. But as evidence, he cited what he said was a "rare" comment from conservative commentator Glenn Beck trashing Donald Trump, even though Beck has been trashing Trump for months by calling him a pseudo-conservative and a "son of a b----."

The Republican establishment is in full meltdown over the collapse of the bid by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California to succeed retiring Speaker John Boehner of Ohio. NPR reported GOP representatives were “audibly crying.” “Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., said the meeting opened, Republicans said the Pledge and then McCarthy stood up and took himself out of the race. The prohibitive favorite said he didn’t want members to take arrows for voting for him and that he was taking himself out of contention. “Speaker Boehner then immediately moved to adjourn the meeting. Rooney said there was “total shock” and

Should we screen “Syrian refugees”? Yes. And no. Yes, because this administration will continue to import Muslim invaders. As such, having a way to vet them would be better than having no way to vet them. But it turns out we have no way to vet them. Investor’s Business Daily reports: … As the White House prepares to dump another 10,000 Syrian refugees on U.S. cities, it assures us these mostly Muslim men undergo a "robust screening" process. Not so, admits the agency responsible for such vetting. Under grilling from GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions, head of the Senate subcommittee on

Former Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett plans to plead guilty to charges she steered no-bid contracts worth more than $23 million to an education consulting firm where she once worked in return for hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks, other perks and a promise of a job, federal prosecutors revealed Thursday. U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon made the disclosure at an afternoon news conference at which he said Byrd-Bennett has been cooperating with investigators. The 23-count indictment alleges that almost immediately after Mayor Rahm Emanuel installed her as public schools chief in 2012, Byrd-Bennett began scheming with Gary Solomon and Thomas



Iowa Democrat education forum cancelled

Back in August, a half dozen of the GOP presidential candidates dutifully showed up for an Iowa forum on education reform to present their plans on the issue to the voters. A similar event is scheduled for the Democrats this month. Or perhaps I should say that it was scheduled. The event is now pretty much canceled because not one of the Democrats running for the White House was willing to show up. Democratic presidential candidates are blowing off an education forum that anchorwoman-turned-activist Campbell Brown was expected to host in Iowa this month, and Brown blames pressure from traditionally Democratic

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has risen to second place in the Republican presidential primary by presenting himself to voters as the accomplished, affable, soft-spoken face of conservatism´s lunatic fringe — the sort of guy who will suggest that evolution was influenced by "the forces of evil" (aka Satan), that there are meaningful parallels between the United States in 2015 and Nazi Germany, and that next year´s elections might just get canceled due to social unrest. With that in mind, his relative lack of expertise on subjects like the federal budget or monetary policy are neither the most shocking nor worrisome

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is backing out of his scheduled appearance on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon Thursday evening, following House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy´s surprising decision to quit the Speakership race. An NBC spokeswoman confirmed that Boehner is no longer appearing tonight. She added that there are no details about possible rescheduling at this time. Reports Wednesday said Boehner would be making a stop at the popular late-night talk show before he leaves Congress at month’s end. He reversed course on Thursday after McCarthy (R-Calif.) shocked lawmakers by dropping his campaign to succeed Boehner as Speaker. “After Leader

In 2005 the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a local government to seize people´s homes and bulldoze their working-class neighborhood so that a private real-estate developer working in cahoots with a powerful private corporation could build fancy new amenities in their place, such as a luxury hotel and conference center. In an interview last night on Fox News, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump gave a ringing endorsement to both that abysmal ruling and the blatant land grab it authorized. "I think eminent domain is wonderful," Trump told host Bret Bair. But wait, aren´t conservatives supposed to be opposed to government attacks on

French train attack hero Spencer Stone was stabbed ´four times in the chest´ while trying to protect a female friend in Sacramento. The attack was so violent that police began treating the case as a homicide when they arrived on the scene shortly after 12:45am on Thursday. Police are now looking for two adult Asian males who fled the scene in a dark Toyota Camry, and said repeatedly that the incident was not a terrorist act. The 23-year-old U.S. airman 1st class was one of the three Americans who managed to take down a gunman as he opened fire on

A trove of emails that the State Department gave the House Select Committee on Benghazi only two weeks ago show that longtime Hillary Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal pushed his business interests in Libya on the then-secretary of state and that she forwarded an email discussing a CIA source which was classified at the time it was sent. That’s according to House Select Committee on Benghazi chairman Trey Gowdy, who stated in a letter sent Thursday to Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings that he plans to release the 1,500 emails within the next five days. Much of Gowdy’s 13-page letter is spent

Despite the public outcry over so-called "sanctuary cities" after a California woman was murdered by an illegal immigrant released from jail in one of the cities, their number has grown to 340, and new statistics show that they release 1,000 inmates, many with violent histories, each month. An analysis of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement records finds that many towns are embracing the sanctuary city model where illegal immigrants charged with crimes are being released over the objection of ICE which seeks to deport many. The Center for Immigration Studies said the number of cities has grown to 340, up

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson sat down with Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview. The Republican presidential candidate, who currently is behind only Donald Trump in the polls, discussed everything from the Affordable Care Act to his foreign policy to government spending. But perhaps the most interesting tidbit gleaned from the 26-minute interview was what Carson had to say about the economy. When Ryssdal asked Carson what the most important economic issue was, Carson, without hesitation, said it was the debt. His answer eventually led him to say that because of the national debt, the Fed has

WASHINGTON – Rep.

House Majority Leader McCarthy dropped out of the race Thursday, just hours before a vote that was expected to make him the Republican nominee for Speaker. But conservatives were unhappy with McCarthy’s front-runner status. Breitbart News reported Wednesday that Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) 72% sent a letter to Republican Conference chairman Rep.
