As man´s mind fades, heart

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Remembering 60 years back is hard for anyone, but for Melvyn Amrine, it´s especially challenging. Melvyn was diagnosed with Alzheimer´s three years ago. For his wife, Doris, it´s been hard to watch. But she says something happened recently to remind her that the man she fell in love with is still here. "It´s special, because even though the mind doesn´t remember everything, the heart remembers," Doris says. It happened the day before Mother´s Day, when Melvyn, who normally needs help just walking around the block, turned up missing. Police dispatch in Little Rock, Arkansas, put out

This brought tears to my eyes. Because Melvyn loves his wife, and not even Alzheimer´s will let him forget that. And because those officers were so kind to Melvyn.

Progressives say the blue-state model works. After all, states like California, Massachusetts and New York have some of the nation´s wealthiest and best-educated populations. But many are also basket cases, reeling from problems ranging from high costs of living and widening income inequality to chronic fiscal crises. And leading blue states often possess unique assets that protect them, at least for a time, from the full economic consequences of their public policies. What happens when the blue-state model is tried in a place without the advantages of a favorable climate, educational hubs and fortress industries? What happens when you go

JACKSON, Miss. — U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran won the state´s Republican primary runoff over challenger Chris McDaniel by 7,667 votes, according to a certification made by the state Republican Party and submitted to the Secretary of State on Monday, the legal deadline. The result was wider than the 6,800-vote win counted by The Associated Press after the June election. Tallies usually change as county parties examine provisional ballots and finalize results. McDaniel, a state senator from Ellisville, has said he intends to challenge his loss. He said he believes that possibly thousands of voters cast ballots in both the Democratic

(Video) The family of a man who used a semi-automatic rifle to kill an Indianapolis police officer Saturday night says it isn’t fair that the alleged shooter – Major Davis, Jr. – should “keep being dragged through the mud.” They also blamed the officer for not staying in his police car. As reported by WISH-TV, Davis was seen brandishing a semi-automatic rifle Saturday night in Indianapolis, which led to a 911 call that dispatched police to look for him: When IMPD Officer Perry Renn found Davis at 34th Street and Forest Manor Avenue, Davis opened fire on Officer Renn.

When President Barack Obama arrives in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, Gov. Rick Perry won’t be there to greet the commander in chief. The Texas governor’s office said the White House had invited Mr. Perry to meet the president on the tarmac in Austin. But in a letter Mr. Perry sent Monday, he told the president: Thanks, but no thanks. Instead, Mr. Perry suggested the two meet privately to discuss the surge in children and other migrants from Central America illegally crossing the U.S. border. “I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the

Late last month Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Community Living (ACL) announced the launch of an online training “tool” to teach caregivers about the “issues” facing older homosexual patients living in long-term care facilities. “This training tool will play an important role in educating a wide audience of care providers about the needs of LGBT seniors,” Hilary Meyer, director of the National Resource Center on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) Aging, announced. “It can help improve the quality of care given to this vulnerable population. “Helping to create a more welcoming environment for our LGBT populations will

The "Tequila Party," a Latino group formed in opposition to the Tea Party, wrote to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director James Comey on Monday to request that the Tea Party and several officials be investigated for their role in protesting and blocking the transfer of illegal aliens captured in Texas to Murrieta, California. The protests on July 1 turned back three busloads of aliens, though more are scheduled to arrive. In their letter--signed by California attorney Ruben Salazar, pro-amnesty activist Dee Dee Garcia Blase, and Nebraska attorney Shirl Mora James--the group, writing on the letterhead of a

On May 29, President Barack Obama had lunch at the White House with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The likely 2016 presidential contender has been to hundreds of West Wing meetings, first as first lady, then as senator, and finally as the top American diplomat. But this face-to-face was unusual. Unlike dozens of presidential meetings every week — and a similar Obama-Clinton meeting in July 2013 — it was not announced in advance. Instead, reporters who cover Obama learned about the secret visit from a People magazine tweet, and ultimately managed to wring a terse sentence from an anonymous

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), denied access to a federal immigration facility in his home state of Oklahoma on July 1, now says he will visit the 1,100 Central American children being held at Ft. Sill on July 12. He also told the Department of Health and Human Services, which runs the center for unaccompanied alien children -- mostly teenagers -- that he plans to make other, unannounced visits to Ft. Sill, because "the tragedy that is occurring requires unfettered access." "I will bring my staff, interpreters and legal counsel," Bridenstine wrote in a July 5 letter to HHS´s congressional liaison.

I am one of the people who always disliked Hillary Clinton. It has seemed a conundrum these past two decades as so many other people appear to have felt the same. I´ve given it a good deal of thought and have come to the conclusion that it comes down to one specific item: Bill. Why I dislike Bill is still crystal clear. From my review of Carol Felsanthal´s masterful Clinton in Exile: " ... an odyssey of gold watches and billionaire friends; bimbos, bling and a private airplane bigger than a doublewide; and cash-raising speeches, end on end — three

For 10 minutes, it seemed like the shooting was everywhere in the South Chicago neighborhood. It started when someone shot and wounded a couple, then two people fired at the shooter, then there was a chase and shots exchanged and a man sitting on a porch was hit. Responding officers kept cutting each other off on their radios as they reported other gunfire in the area late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Then the heavy equipment rolled in: A helicopter and SUVs packed with lockers of rifles. SWAT teams in green coveralls patrolled the streets with uniformed officers. It

Ultra Facepalm: Watch Americans
Struggle to Answer Even One Question
On the U.S. Citizenship Test

(Video) What hopeful Americans are asked on a U.S. citizenship test are pretty run-of-the-mill questions that most of us learned in school: How many Supreme Court justices are there? Who was president during World War I? Who is the current vice president? Seems easy enough, right? But when native-born Americans were asked those questions and others, they had a lot of trouble. From Mic.com: Sad as they may be, the video’s results have been replicated before. A USA Today survey in 2012 found that only 65% of native-born Americans could correctly answer 6 out of 10 immigration test questions correctly.

PHOENIX — Calling the state policy motivated by animosity, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this morning ordered that "dreamers´´ be allowed to get Arizona driver´s licenses, at least for the time being. In a unanimous decision, the court rejected arguments by Gov. Jan Brewer that she was entitled to issue an executive order two years ago denying licenses to those in the federal government´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court ordered U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell, who had initially denied an injunction on behalf of the dreamers, to direct the state Department of Transportation to

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal.

A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party. The float, in the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb., was affixed to trailer being towed behind a blue pickup truck. The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal. But it is, as the students tend to find out quickly.” Female students looking to earn

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008. Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

Many people are wondering why Republicans are not doing more to stop the Illegal Alien influx, and more specifically not stop President Obama’s approach. We can answer that question….. ….But before we do everyone needs to stop being a co-dependent and accept what is in front of us. This guy, Tom Donohue, is at the root of the matter. Tom Donohue is the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the CoC. The CoC wants amnesty legislation, the CoC is also the primary source of campaign funding for the following Republicans: Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rob Portman (R-OH), Bob Corker (R-TN),
