Embattled Republican Assemblyman Robert Schroeder has been indicted on charges he stole more than $1.8 million from individuals who loaned him money and that he wrote more than $3.4 million in bad checks to creditors, the state attorney general said on Friday. “We allege that as the financial house of cards he built collapsed, Schroeder lied and stole in an attempt to prop it up, defrauding creditors of in excess of $5 million, between his theft of loan funds and passing of bad checks,” Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said in a statement. “This indictment, which would carry a substantial prison

And why isn´t ex-gov Jon Corzine not in jail for his billion-dollar MF Global scam? Oh, that´s right. He´s a Democrat.

The Democrats will let him off the hook if he agrees to join them as a fund raising advisor.

The pressitutes are so obvious in their dislike of GOP. Every time a republican gets in trouble, you don´t have to read to the bottom of the article to find out the party affiliation. It is screamed in the headline.

"Embattled Democrat President flees the Continental United States as his corrupt administration crumbles before the fiscal cliff he engineered and signed into law last year."

"More workers laid off as companies flee California in the wake of Democrat tax hikes approved by low information voters. Economic catastrophe looms as Democrat Governor Brown remains in hiding in his hidden Sacramento evil underground lair."

A Republican steals $5M and gets indicted; Corzine steals billions and gets a pass. Unbelievable. Corzine should have been indicted too but in this backward socialist progressive environment, there is different rules for different folks.

Notice how the headline starts with the word GOP. If this was a ´Rat the mention of his political affiliation would be altogether missing or appear in para 8 on page 24. This dishonesty is almost as criminal as the act described.

Actually, #9,-if the article was about a Democrat, that fact would have tumbled out of the monitor and onto the floor somewhere under the couch.

The use of well-known brand names in school tests has led to accusations that education boards are making product placement deals. Nike, Barbie, iPod, Life Savers and even Mug Root Beer all appeared in a recent New York Common Core standardized English test taken by more than a million students in grades three to eight. Outraged parents have demanded an explanation for why specific brand names were used in the tests - with some suggesting they´ve become little more than just another way of advertising to young children. But New York state education officials and the test publisher insist the

Some generic drugs have
had eye-popping price spikes

Pharmacist Larry Cowan can flip through his records and spot the generic drugs that have taken big price jumps in the past year or so. There’s digoxin, a heart medicine that he used to buy for pennies a pill. “Now the price is close to 10 times that,” said Cowan, owner of Glenview Professional Pharmacy in Richland Hills. There’s doxycycline, a decades-old antibiotic that went on the Food and Drug Administration’s shortage list in 2012 and became the poster child for generic price spikes. Cowan said a tablet of doxycycline went from about 6 cents in late 2012 to $3.65

Bon voyage Quantum! We hardly knew ye. The Royal Caribbean´s cruise ship "Quantum of the Seas" will be making a pit stop at the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne in November, but the ultimate home of the Royal Caribbean Cruises´ marquee ship will be in China, the president of the cruise line announced last week. "We´re revving up in China," Royal Caribbean Cruises President and COO Adam Goldstein said in a phone interview Thursday. "In the last five years the market grew more rapidly and customers developed an affinity for Royal Caribbean." While Royal Caribbean´s 4,180-passenger luxury liner will

Police in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach on Saturday were investigating separate incidents in which two boys were sexually assaulted this week in park restrooms. A male juvenile walked into a restroom at Polliwog Park (map) about 2:09 p.m. Friday when he was accosted by a man who forced him into a stall and fondled the boy’s genitals, the Manhattan Beach Police Department said in a statement. The victim fled the restroom and reported the incident to a parent. The man is described as white, in his 40s, with grey hair and a medium build, wearing a white shirt and

Trenton — Deeply in debt and struggling to stay open, Saint Michael’s Medical Center of Newark put itself up for sale two years ago and accepted a $65 million offer from Prime Healthcare Services of California. Weeks later, however, Prime took a closer look at Saint Michael’s books and concluded they revealed “burdensome and inflexible” labor contracts, HMO rates “significantly below market price,” and two doctors earning more than $500,000 annually. (Snip) The proceeds from the sale won’t come close to conquering the $233 million mountain of state-backed loans Saint Michael took on when its parent company, Catholic Health East,

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15. "We believe the First Amendment is on our side as evidenced by cases such as NAACP v. Alabama and International Union UAW v. National Right to Work. Many 501(c)(4) organizations protect

State schools isolate non-Muslims
Telegraph [UK], by Andrew Gilligan    Original Article

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

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

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
