Hector Camacho, the flamboyant and often volatile former three-division world champion, was shot in the jaw in Bayamon, Puerto Rico while riding as a passenger in a car on Tuesday night and is listed in critical condition at Centro Medico in San Juan. The driver of the car was fatally shot. Bayamon Police are investigating the incident and have one suspect in custody, according to reports in the newspaper Primera Hora. According to the medical director of the hospital, Camacho was struck once in the left jaw and the bullet traveled down his neck and lodged in his right shoulder.

Evidently he may possibly be paralyzed by this. The bullet shattered two vertebrae. So very sad. I do hope he pulls through with the same energy and determination he showed in his boxing matches. God´s blessings on you Hector.

The most entertaining fight ever came after "Macho" insulted Julio Cesar Chavez, his family, and his Mexican home town. Chavez quietly told him, "I will punish you for that."

Macho entered the ring strutting and preening for the crowd, thinking he was too quick to be touched. From what I saw, Chavez never intended to knock out Camacho, he wanted to inflict pain and leave scars. For ten rounds, Chavez bruised and cut up Camacho´s face and beat his midsection into jelly.

In the second row ringside sat "Macho´s" mother expecting to see her pretty little Hector beat and humiliate the Mexican. By the end of the fight she was hysterical. Her boy´s eyes were swollen almost shut, his mouth and nose were bleeding and he could barely stand straight for the condition of his ribs.

Debt-limit vote shows Cornyn’s courage,
Cruz’s pursuit of the limelight
Waco Tribune [TX], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/19/2014 11:14:50 AM     Post Reply
With allies like Ted Cruz, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn doesn’t need enemies. Thanks to Sen. Cruz’s latest procedural stunt, Cornyn, a reliably conservative Republican from Texas with a record of responsible governance, now finds himself under siege from bomb-throwing elements of the extreme right over last week’s Senate vote to extend the government’s borrowing authority. Republican leaders in the Senate sought an up-or-down vote that would put all Democrats firmly on record as supporting the debt-limit extension. But Cruz upset all that, demanding the debt-limit bill first clear a nit-picky procedural hurdle requiring 60 votes. With only 55 votes, Democrats were

You Are Subsidizing a Fancy Beach House
That Will Be Destroyed in a Flood
Atlantic Wire, by Philip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/19/2014 8:19:05 AM     Post Reply
Wealthy condo developers and the owners of expensive beach houses are petitioning the Federal Emergency Management Agency to cut them a break on flood insurance costs. Meaning that the long-unbalanced insurance system is only getting more uneven, and taxpayers´ subsidies to those property owners are getting more unfair. Here´s how flood insurance works, in the ideal. FEMA develops maps of areas near the coast or inland bodies of water and rivers. Those maps try and anticipate the likelihood of flooding, and if you build in zones that are likely to flood, you pay mandatory insurance premiums linked to the likelihood of

Peggy Noonan reads Kevin Roose’s undercover account (with audio) of the Wall Street lions having a blast. Excerpt from her review: All of this is supposed to be merry, high-jinksy, unpretentious, wickedly self-spoofing. But it seems more self-exposing, doesn’t it? And all of it feels so decadent.(Snip)I was thinking just now about Huey P. Long, and how the hard times of the 1920s, and the so-called “Bourbons” — the elites that ruled Louisiana back then — produced Long’s governorship. Mind you, Long was an extremely savvy politician and peerless orator. He played the peckerwood on the stump, but he was so intelligent

Why do environmentalists

Is anyone more hypocritical than a professional environmentalist? In case anyone needs a hint, see this month’s exhibit: As North American environmental activists throw all of their energy and resources into blocking Canada from selling its oil to the United States, they have haven’t made a peep over Iran increasing its own oil exports. And one would think they’d care, as the environmentalists’ entire rationale for opposing Keystone is that if a pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico is built, more carbon will be put into the atmosphere. But their problem here — and often — is that

Harry Reid´s Less Than

The Democrats are agitating to raise the minimum wage, unemployment be damned. That was the point of this tweet by Harry Reid, earlier today:(Snip for graphic)Reid’s tweet is dumb on any number of levels: 1) The economy has been far from uniform over recent decades; it is particularly during the seven years during which Reid has been Majority Leader of the Senate that middle-class Americans have suffered. Reid, of course, takes no responsibility. 2) Incomes haven’t been stagnating because of the Koch brothers, who employ more than 60,000 Americans, overwhelmingly in high-paying jobs. But for them, the problem would be

Obama´s pop culture celebrity

Pity the president, first among equals, obliged by the pulls of democracy and of his office to be "equal" and also be "first" all at once. Picking a leader, people look for somebody well above average, stronger and brighter, with superior judgment, keener intelligence and the ability to be calm under stress. At the same time, he must be approachable, cool and in some sort of touch with the people he works for, or lose a key part of the human connection that is a critical source of his strength. The first six presidents were aristocrats of different varieties, four Virginians and

Mudslide in Republican Senate Primaries

A quick tour of this election cycle’s most contested Senate Republican primaries: In Kentucky, Mitch McConnell’s campaign spotlighted a Politico report uncovering that challenger Matt Bevin, who had been hitting McConnell on his vote for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), had a quite different view of the issue back in 2008, as well as different views of the government takeover of troubled mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the Federal Reserve’s decision to begin buying commercial paper issued by banks. The Senate Conservatives Fund, aiming to shore up Bevin, aired an ad contending that “Mitch McConnell is trying to

Swiss fighters grounded during

Geneva — No Swiss fighter jets were scrambled Monday when an Ethiopian Airlines co-pilot hijacked his own plane and forced it to land in Geneva, because it happened outside business hours, the Swiss airforce said. When the co-pilot on flight ET-702 from Addis Ababa to Rome locked himself in the cockpit while the pilot went to the bathroom and announced a hijacking, Italian and French fighter jets were scrambled to escort the plane through their respective airspaces. But although the co-pilot-turned-hijacker quickly announced he wanted to land the plane in Switzerland, where he later said he aimed to seek asylum, Switzerland´s fleet

Mel Reynolds was arrested in Zimbabwe for allegedly shooting thousands of porno images. That’s 20 years after he was thrown in jail for child porn, statutory rape, and more. Will this creep ever learn? Question for all you political scandal aficionados: Does the news that Zimbabwe officials have arrested former congressman Mel Reynolds for allegedly violating immigration laws and possessing pornographic material—material that Reynolds supposedly created himself—mean that we the people will at last be rid of this habitual skeezeball? This may seem like a question with an obvious answer. As the Zimbabwe press tells it, the ex-congressman has been quite the

Time to end Donald Trump’s
gubernatorial sideshow
New York Post, by Kieran Lalor    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/19/2014 5:03:38 AM     Post Reply
Donald Trump is wasting our time. He won’t wind up running for governor because he’d lose, and by an embarrassingly wide margin. Trump knows that; it’s what the polls say and he isn’t delusional — he’s a showman playing a character. He’s looking for some headlines because that’s his MO. But New York doesn’t have time for Trump’s circus act. The state’s economy is in horrible shape. His grandstanding must take a back seat. Trump has already gotten the pundits to talk about him. He’s had his ego stroked by politicos telling him, “Yes Mr. Trump, you’d make a great governor.” He

Last Friday, in what would be a humiliating episode if it were capable of embarrassment, the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press, acted as if a tweet from “@BarackObama” about the TV program House of Cards represented an “endorsement” of the program by President Barack Obama himself. It even described the tweet as his “latest playful executive order,” and reported that a cast member somehow “double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating.” The folks at AP are so smitten with Dear Leader that they either weren’t aware or didn’t care that the Twitter account involved is from Organizing for America,

Uproar over ObamaCare’s menu rules

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is asking the Obama administration to scale back draft regulations under ObamaCare that would force restaurants to post nutritional information on their menus.?? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is close to finalizing a rule requiring calorie labels on vending machines and at restaurants and “similar retail food establishments.” Proposed in 2011, the regulations stem from the Affordable Care Act and are designed to combat obesity by helping consumers make healthier choices. But the group of 24 lawmakers said the draft regulations, which apply to restaurants with 20 or more locations, go beyond Congress’ intent

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Who died and made John Kerry an Islamic scholar? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of his Sunday in his stocking feet at an Indonesian mosque, at one point beating a huge drum used to call Muslims to prayer. Kerry’s visit to the modern Istiqlal Mosque in central Jakarta, said to be the largest mosque in Southeast Asia with a capacity of 130,000, was designed to demonstrate his respect for Islam as he visited the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. — Having removed his shoes in keeping with Islamic custom, Kerry at one point was shown a gigantic, skin-covered drum which rests sideways

The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. The FBI documents that Clarion has obtained show that the group is headquartered in the well known “Islamberg”

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision." Some Republicans, particularly Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, have refocused attention on former President Bill Clinton for the Lewinsky scandal, saying Democrats can´t frame themselves as the champions

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says there is “absolutely no evidence” that the Affordable Care Act will drive down employment, despite a report from the Congressional Budget Office released Feb. 4 predicting fewer people would be working. “There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act,” Sebelius told reporters in Orlando, Fla., on Monday. “Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up.

Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama´s reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll. Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago. The poll asked those who voted for Obama´s reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?” — Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no. — 80
