WASHINGTON -- A pipefitter was killed today by a large falling tree on Capitol Hill. Congress is out for the Easter break and traffic was light when the 30- to 40-foot section of tree fell across Independence Avenue near the Rayburn House Office Building this morning. "It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Architect of the Capitol employee, Matthew McClanahan, following an accident on the U.S. Capitol Grounds," Architect of the Capitol Stephen T. Ayers said in a statement. "A large branch of an American Elm fell and struck Matt, who was working nearby on an irrigation pipe." "Matt

A biiiiiig lawsuit.....? Against whom and for what?

Against the creator? Against the one who planted the tree? Against all Americans who allowed it to be planted? Against all Americans who allowed it to stand.? Against the grounds keepers who didn´t prop it up?

Surely there´s a long list of responsible parties that can be developed. The real question, what really happened and could this have been prevented?

I sympathize for the tragic loss to his family, but abhor the que of lawyers who will line up to harvest the fruit of an act of God. Workmen´s comp, life insurance, yes! But millions from US? No!

There won´t be any lawsuit. Mr. McClanahan´s family will be (rightly, IMHO) well compensated, including a generous Congressional death gratuity.

Second parchment manuscript copy

Two Harvard University researchers announced Friday that they have found a second parchment manuscript copy of the Declaration of Independence in a tiny records office in southern England. The only other parchment copy is maintained by the National Archives in Washington, D.C., researchers Emily Sneff and Danielle Allen said in a statement. The newly discovered document — which the two have dated to the 1780s — was found in the town of Chichester archives, and is believed to have originally belonged to Duke of Richmond who was known as the “Radical Duke,’’ for the support he gave to Americans during the Revolutionary

Milo Yiannopoulos is plotting his comeback, allegedly to take place at UC Berkeley, whether university administrators like it or not. "In light of recent controversies, I am planning a huge multiday event called Milo´s Free Speech Week in Berkeley later this year. We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression," Yiannopoulos said on his Facebook page Friday. Yiannopoulos wouldn´t say who is backing the effort, financially or otherwise, nor would he say which, if any, student group has invited him to speak at Berkeley.

No family member was employed in 16,069,000 U.S. families in 2016, or 19.6 percent of families, according to newly released data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of families with nobody employed increased by roughly 19,000 from 2015 to 2016, although the percentage slightly declined from 19.7 percent to 19.6 percent. For the purpose of the study, the bureau counts a family as households headed by a married couple or by unmarried women or men. The definition includes households with children under 18 years old and households without children. There were 82,092,000 families in the United States in 2016, according

SJW Turns Against Tiny House Movement
as ´Poverty Appropriation´

It seems like a week doesn´t pass where I don´t see something about tiny houses on my Facebook timeline. As a reaction to both the disastrous Obama economy and the climate change hysteria, people -- generally Brooklyn-style hipsters -- are building and living in comically small houses. You´d think an ever-smaller "carbon footprint" would be a hit across the Left, but we all know by now that nothing is ever good enough for the Social Justice Warrior. Because silly houses have apparently become "poverty appropriation." That´s right -- your goofy home could HURT SOMEONE´S FEELINGS: This background, this essential part of who I

Hillary camp scrambling to find out

The knives are out in Hillary Clinton’s camp about who leaked embarrassing information to the authors of a bombshell new book about her “doomed presidential campaign.” There is a witch hunt underway among Clinton’s presidential campaign staffers after the release of the autopsy book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.

Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded
With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

The fake Indian’s new book tour is just getting underway, but it will hard for Fauxcahontas to top her appearance on CBS over the weekend, where she at least twice yelled out her favorite “curse word:” “Poop!” she blurted out at somebody named Chip Reid. This network nonentity had asked Lieawatha for her favorite expletive, and when she came up with “Poop!” he instantly dismissed it as “so goody two-shoes.” “Are you kidding?” she shot back. “Have you ever seen a woman like me look you straight in the face after you’ve finished some long explanation of something and then just said,

Fox Is Reportedly Preparing
for Bill O’Reilly’s Exit
New York Magazine, by Margaret Hartmann    Original Article

When Bill O’Reilly left for vacation on April 11, he stressed that the break was pre-planned to counter the notion that it had something to do with with the New York Times’ revelation that five women were paid $13 million to settle harassment claims against him. A week later, it looks increasingly unlikely that he’ll ever return to his show. New York’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday afternoon that “the Murdochs are leaning toward announcing that O’Reilly will not return to the air,” according to three sources. Later that evening multiple outlets said support for O’Reilly is eroding within Fox News.

Hillary ran the worst presidential campaign ever
New York Post, by John Podhoretz    Original Article

So guess what? In the last weeks before the election, the Hillary Clinton campaign did no polling. No. Polling. Whatsoever. Oh, it had data. Lots and lots of data. Analytics, even. Data analytics! But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea. This is one of the thousand revelations in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” the new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes that, for political junkies, redefines the word “juicy”

Georgia congressional race: Democrat

A special election in Georgia’s Sixth congressional district failed to produce an outright winner Tuesday, forcing a June 20 runoff between upstart Democrat Jon Ossoff and former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel. With 88 percent of the precincts reporting, Ossoff had garnered 48 percent of the vote, falling just short of the majority threshold required in the so-called “jungle primary.” Handel was the top GOP vote-getter at 20 percent, finishing comfortably ahead of technology executive Bob Gray, who received 11 percent of the vote, and former State Senators Judson Hill and Dan Moody, who received 9 percent of the vote

No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That´s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn´t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it´s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency. And that´s strange. It´s really strange. Because Donald Trump and other conservative pundits seemed to be deeply bothered by the times President Obama went out and golfed. It appeared to genuinely offend

Chelsea Clinton likes cheddar cheese and Twitter and hates that America can’t come to grips with what the Clinton Foundation actually does. Oh, and her mother lost because voters are sexist. Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives. The former First Daughter says she was “not surprised” at the blatant sexism

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

Senator Elizabeth Warren launched another attack on U.S. President Donald Trump on April 19, describing his election win as partly the result of an “ugly stew of racism” on the MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show. (Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.” Warren also attacked the president for

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a

Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen and singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky released a new song, "That´s What Makes Us Great," to protest President Trump. Grushecky wrote the anthem just as Trump was being sworn in as president in January. "I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette in an interview. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ´What do you think about singing on it?´ He gave it the Bruce treatment." "Don´t tell me a lie / and sell it as a fact / I´ve been down that road before /

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she thinks Democrats can win back House control in 2018. Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday. Georgia´s 6th Congressional District, which became vacant after former Rep. Tom Price became Secretary of Health and Human Services, has been held by the GOP

Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.

Former Vermont governor and Democratic National Comittee chairman Howard Dean called out conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Twitter. (Snip) The comment was in response to a former New York Times reporter who tweeted, "Free Speech Defenders Don´t Forget: Ann Coulter once said: My only regret w/ Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building." The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that "fighting words" are not constitutionally protected, meaning that the words would have to directly incite violence.
