Travelers left $500,000 in spare change
in airport security bins in 2012
New York Daily News, by Adam Edelman    Original Article

Frequent flyers left behind more than $500,000 at airport security checkpoints in 2012 — and now that huge chunk of money could find its way to deserving troops’ wallets. The U.S. House of Representatives voted Tuesday to pass a bill that donates to the United Service Organizations the combined loose change that travelers across the country forget to retrieve from airport security bins. The USO is a nonprofit benefitting members of the U.S. military and their families. While flyers usually remember to retrieve their computers, belts and other items required to be placed in bins before going through metal detectors at

Days after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby this year, the Prime Minister established an Extremism Task Force to advise on how best to stop the spread of terrorist ideology. The recommendations contained in its report, published yesterday, were a mix of the familiar and the obvious, though none would appear to address the biggest problem of all--what to do about the hundreds of jihadists who have fought in Syria and who will be returning to the UK if they survive the conflict. The security agencies think that as many as 300 British passport holders have joined the array of

Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes appears to have stolen her family’s “favorite recipes” she posted on her campaign website, when commemorating Thanksgiving last week. The Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) displayed recipes for a “cranberry-pineapple salad” and a “sweet potato casserole,” both of which were “near-exact copies” of recipes online. The Hill reports: Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes’s family recipes, posted on her website on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday, appear to be lifted from other websites. One, for cranberry-pineapple salad, is a near-exact copy of a Kraft recipe for “Festive Cranberry-Pineapple Salad,” as posted to



George H.W. Bush Wore Socks With His
Face On Them and It was Glorious

George H.W. Bush´s legacy and greatest contribution to the American people may be his socks. And years from now, when the human race is enslaved by an alien race and hope dims, someone will look back on December 3, 2013 — the day the 41st president of the United States of America wore socks with his face emblazoned on them. Bush donned these magic socks on Tuesday when he accepted the Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation award in Houston for his public service and government career. Bush´s sartorial sock choice have been an object of fascination for the media. They´re some

Global-warming ‘proof’ is evaporating

The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way. Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed. Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. Back in 2005 I

HuffPo Doubles Down on a Hoax

The proper thing to do after inadvertently publishing a hoax is to apologize. These things happen, after all. Publishers are not omniscient and mistakes can be made. Apologize, seek forgiveness, and then take steps to prevent future mistakes. It’s simple, really. But — apparently — not simple enough for the Huffington Post. As I pointed out yesterday, HuffPo published an essay entitled “Why I Make Terrible Decisions, or, Poverty Thoughts” — an essay that purports to describe one woman’s experience with poverty. The essay went viral, and the response was so overwhelming that the author set up a gofundme page and raised

At Last, Walmart Opens

At the corner of First and H Streets in Northwest Washington, the balloons were all set, hanging stories high in the cold morning air. The inflatable Pepsi and Mountain Dew bottles were twisting in the breeze, and a mini-hoop game was set up. There was even a marching band and Chester the Cheetos Cheetah. The time had finally come for Washington, D.C. — the last holdout in the lower 48 —to get its first two Walmart stores. In 1996, Vermont was the last state to go Walmart blue. Now it’s Washington’s turn, and four more stores are planned. Just before



On a big stage, Jindal says
Obama lacks energy policy

PHILADELPHIA — The theme for Gov. Bobby Jindal’s remarks at the National Constitution Center Tuesday night was energy. After all, the governor comes from a state in which the energy industry employs thousands. What the governor delivered were stinging words for President Barack Obama and Congress on a wide range of issues. He talked a lot about energy, zeroing in on a pipeline controversy and failed federal investments in companies, such as electric carmaker Fisker. He accused the extremist left of fighting affordable energy. “They want the government to tell Americans to live in smaller houses, drive smaller cars, set

De Blasio ally: ‘Knockout game’

A local New York City politician and ally of mayor-elect Bill de Blasio says the recent spate of “knockout” attacks in Brooklyn may stem from “a genuine concern” about Jewish influence. Laurie Cumbo, the councilwoman-elect for the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights, made the comments in an open letter posted to her Facebook page. In the letter, Cumbo reports that many of her African-American constituents are alarmed by the growth of the local Jewish community. The resulting tension, she says, could have lead to a number of attacks on Jewish residents that bear the hallmarks of a “game” in which teens attempt

Bankruptcy Hasn’t Stopped Detroit’s Plan

Detroit is declaring bankruptcy while its city council considers contributing public money to build a new Hockey Stadium for the billionaire owner of the Red Wings. While Judge Steven Rhodes was trying to figure out if the city of Detroit could declare Chapter 9 bankruptcy, the Detroit City Council was also doing some thinking. Should the council kick in about $45 million of city funding towards the $650 million entertainment complex that would include a residential section and a new arena for the Detroit Red Wings National Hockey League franchise? The city council decided not to rule it out and has a

Calling himself a “scapegoat” for a political hiring system that continues to this day, Chicago’s convicted former Streets and Sanitation commissioner Al Sanchez filed nominating petitions Monday for a seat on the Cook County Board. The longtime head of the Hispanic Democratic Organization (HDO) Southeast, Sanchez is just five months removed from the federal prison camp in Marion, Ill., where he lost 50 pounds. He spent 2.5 years there for rigging city hiring and promotions to benefit soldiers in HDO, a now-defunct army of political workers that helped to elect and re-elect former Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Democrats´ 2013 Drop-Off Problem

Probably the most jarring election story of 2013 was the successful recall of two Democratic state senators in Colorado. Both represented districts that had voted for President Obama by wide margins: In the recall, Angela Morse ran 15 points behind the president, while John Morse (pictured) ran 12 points behind him. These were extreme cases: low-turnout recall elections where the pro-recall forces were unusually energized by the gun issue. But they highlight what is probably the most troubling indicator for Democrats right now as we inch toward the midterm-election season: The drop-off in Democratic performance in elections this year -- Democrats

I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal

(Anchorage) In the three weeks since the U.S. Indian Law & Order Commission chastised Alaska for opposing Natives who want their own village cops and courts, chairman Troy Eid says he´s been called a radical and an outsider who shouldn´t be sticking his nose where it doesn´t belong. Eid swept aside such criticism Wednesday when the commission officially presented its report in Anchorage. He declared that Alaska "was on the wrong track" and that public safety and security were so bad in rural Alaska, especially for women and children, that it had become a national disgrace.

It appears the Oregon girl who was told she could not sell mistletoe in a public park, but could beg for money to pay for her braces, will be able to pay for dental work...and then some. Hundreds of mistletoe orders have poured in after reports of 11-year-old Madison Root being told by a security guard that she cannot sell the item at a public park, but she could, if she wanted to, beg for money, KATU.com reported. Root, who was selling the classic Christmas staple to earn enough money to pay for her new braces, also received $1,000 from a local

New York - Hackers have stolen usernames and passwords for nearly two million accounts at Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo and others, according to a report released this week. The massive data breach was a result of keylogging software maliciously installed on an untold number of computers around the world, researchers at cybersecurity firm Trustwave said. The virus was capturing log-in credentials for key websites over the past month and sending those usernames and passwords to a server controlled by the hackers. On Nov. 24, Trustwave researchers tracked that server, located in the Netherlands. They discovered compromised credentials for more than 93,000 websites,

MEXICO CITY -- Mexican troops and federal police kept a nighttime watch on a rural field where thieves abandoned a stolen shipment of highly radioactive cobalt-60, while officials began planning the delicate task of recovering the dangerous material. Juan Eibenschutz, director general of the National Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards, said late Wednesday that it could take at least two days to safely get the material into a secure container and transport it to a waste site. "It´s a very delicate operation," Eibenschutz said. "What´s important is that the material has been located and the place is being watched to guarantee

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The

A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private

One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.

WASHINGTON – The House Judiciary Committee debated on Tuesday whether President Obama acted within his purview when he delayed the new healthcare law and changed immigration enforcement. Republicans have accused Obama of circumventing the nation’s laws by picking and choosing which laws to enforce, and at least one expert told the committee that this could change government as the nation knows it. From the Affordable Care Act (ACA), to the DREAM Act and more, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said the Obama administration has repeatedly ignored what Congress has passed, while enacting executive orders and other exercises without

Obama Pivots to Income Inequality

Today President Obama announced to an audience at the far-left Center for American Progress that he will spend the remainder of his term in office focusing on income inequality. He began by saying that middle-class Americans are struggling, and the American Dream is threatened. He is right. Statistics on the White House’s own web site indicate that since Obama took office, median family income has fallen, per capita income has dropped, and millions of Americans have been plunged into poverty. But Obama is like a weatherman: he takes no responsibility for the disasters he describes. No one, not even a

It’s been a rotten several weeks for the mainstream media. MSNBC Alec Baldwin lost his job after calling a photographer a “c***sucking f*g”’; now he’s been followed to the scrap heap by Martin Bashir, who said someone should “p*ss” and “s***” in Sarah Palin’s mouth. CNN, meanwhile, is cutting back on its news content and instead focusing on entertainment-oriented content like Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. “We also want to broaden what people can expect from CNN,” boss Jeff Zucker says, explaining that the network needs “an attitude and a take.” Online, it’s been a tough week for outlets like BuzzFeed

Washington - The troubled mobile phone maker BlackBerry still has at least one very loyal customer: U.S. President Barack Obama. At a meeting with youth on Wednesday to promote his landmark healthcare law, Obama said he is not allowed to have Apple´s smart phone, the iPhone, for "security reasons," though he still uses Apple´s tablet computer, the iPad. Apple was one of several tech companies that may have allowed the National Security Agency (NSA) direct access to servers containing customer data, according to revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The companies deny the allegation. Obama fought to keep
