Two Rivers — The frigid waves slam against the fragile deck and hull of an aging wooden schooner. Each swell tosses the ship from side to side, ever closer to capsizing. The men on deck fear for their lives, but relentless Lake Michigan is deaf to their cries of horror. Knowing death is imminent, Capt. Herman Schuenemann of the Rouse Simmons writes a note that would become his last known words. It is a plea to God to spare his and his crew’s lives. For 13 years, Schuenemann had delivered his cargo of Christmas trees to families in Chicago from Thompson, Mich. He was so beloved by the people of

The Lois Lerner files:
A partisan bureaucrat at work
FoxNews.com, by Jay Sekulow    Original Article

The House Ways and Means Committee released a letter Wednesday detailing what it believes to be criminal misconduct by Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the ongoing IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. For those who want to understand how partisan bureaucrats can manipulate a powerful federal agency, the letter is a must-read. The list of newly-disclosed acts of political bias and manipulation are astounding:

Austin, Texas -- As he joins three other living presidents Thursday to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, President Barack Obama honors a measure that helped pave his way to the White House. Obama, along with Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, have converged at the Lyndon B. Johnson Library in Texas to commemorate the historic act, as well as the decades-long movement that spurred its signing.

Hidalgo sheriff resigns

Months of speculation and weeks of intensifying rumors reached a crescendo Friday, as Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño resigned his post and aborted his decorated four-decade career in Texas law enforcement amid ongoing federal prosecutions of eight lawmen in addition to a former commander and Treviño’s youngest son. The move had been anticipated for weeks, but the fallout from the Hidalgo County’s highest-ranking lawman could still be significant. “The Sheriff’s Office is a very large department with many individuals and assets, hopefully they have the infrastructure in place to keep operations running smoothly

AUSTIN — Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis on Friday released a list of public-sector clients she has represented since 2010, addressing a potential campaign issue in her race for governor. The list provided to the San Antonio Express-News/Houston Chronicle includes the clients she has represented as part of the Newby Davis firm, according to her campaign. It doesn´t include all the public-sector clients represented by the two-person firm she has with Brian Newby, Republican Gov. Rick Perry´s former chief of staff. The list only includes the clients she handles, not those Newby handles, according to her campaign.

House Republicans are fending off aggressive efforts by Democrats to punish Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for cutting off a Democratic congressman during a heated hearing on the IRS targeting scandal. The House voted Thursday afternoon to block a resolution that would formally chastise the chairman of the House oversight committee for his conduct at Wednesday´s hearing. The vote was along party lines, 211-186

SAN ANTONIO — Two election workers at a Southwest Side polling site were chastised this week after Hispanic Republican voters complained the workers attempted to steer them to the Democratic primary. Republican officials said one GOP voter claimed she was told Hispanics are supposed to vote Democrat. The Bexar County Elections Department, responding to a complaint of voter intimidation at Collins Garden Library, said the two election workers serving as greeters were told to stop asking voters to declare their party affiliation in front of other voters.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
