Justify becomes 13th Triple Crown winner
with thrilling Belmont victory

Baltimore Sun, by Childs Walker

Original Article

Posted By:greggojo, 6/9/2018 6:59:53 PM

The fates seemed to line up against Justify as he sought to become the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown. From his tender heel the day after he won the Kentucky Derby to his tired performance in the Preakness to his starting position on the dreaded rail in the Belmont Stakes, he’d encountered obstacles that have defeated many an excellent horse. It would take a great champion to render all those subplots meaningless. Justify, as it turns out, is just that.

Comments:
Great race. Great champion. Wonderful thankful words from Jockey Mike Smith (to the consternation no doubt, of NBC).

Given how narrow his win was at the Preakness, I had my doubts that Justify had the goods to win at the Belmont. But he proved me wrong, leading from the bell and never really being challenged. An impressive win, and one for the history books.

The jockey just kept thanking Our Lord for the win. It was quite touching and probably made several MSM head implode.

And it was a flawless victory. Justify was in the lead the whole time and didn´t even look that tired when it was over. I kept expecting someone to challenge him from the pack but even in the final stretch he just sailed on.

Reply #3 sent me scurrying to the ownership roster. Sure enough, the despicable Soros has a portion of this great horse, BUT only 15%.

I´m with #7. This magnificent horse Justify, whose stamina I doubted after the Preakness, put those doubts to rest with his wire to wire victory. Soros´s 15% ownership stake isn´t going to diminish my Triple Crown pleasure. Great horse, great jockey, great trainer, great majority owner. That´s sufficiently good for me.

For comparison purposes, Justify´s time of 2:28.18 is more than four seconds slower than Secretariat´s record at Belmont (2:24 flat, which broke the old track record by 2 3/5 seconds.

Trump signs executive order to stop
family separations at border
Fox News, by John Roberts and Andrew O´Reilly    Original Article
Posted By: greggojo- 6/20/2018 3:52:17     Post Reply
President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally -- moving to stop the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans. The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes. In signing the measure, Trump said he wants to keep families together while also enforcing border security.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.” Gowdy kicked off the hearing featuring testimony from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his review of the Hillary Clinton email case. The top DOJ watchdog is on Capitol Hill for the second day in a row to discuss the explosive report. But Gowdy launched into Tuesday's session -- a joint hearing held by the House oversight and judiciary panels -- with a fiery condemnation of the

Immigration whiplash? Trump says

President Trump on Friday morning said he would not sign a moderate immigration bill currently working its way through Congress -- although by the afternoon, the White House seemed to try walking it back, prolonging a day of confusion amid Congress´ long fight for an immigration policy overhaul. In an interview with “Fox and Friends”, Trump said that while he was “looking at both” immigration proposals in Congress– one spearheaded by Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and the more moderate bill proposed by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. – he would not sign Ryan’s so-called compromise bill because it

Nerves can wreck any performer’s day. Not Courtney Hadwin. When the British teen auditioned on America’s Got Talent, she confessed to her battle with nerves right from the start. Nerves of steel, more like. Hadwin surprised everyone in the room as she wheeled around the stage and belted out Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” covered in the ´90s by the Black Crowes. "Bloody hell Courtney,” enthused judge Simon Cowell. “You were this shy little thing when you came out. Then you sing and you’re like a lion. I mean, genuinely incredible.”

Obama took lying to new

WASHINGTON -- When it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration increasingly appears to have been a bottomless pit of deception. First, President Barack Obama failed to disclose to Congress the existence of secret side deals on inspections when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. (They were only uncovered by chance when then-Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., learned about them during a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna.)

At least seven people were killed and 32 others were wounded by gunfire in Chicago over the sweltering Memorial Day weekend as more than 1,000 extra police officers patrolled the streets, beaches and parks. Shootings happened in neighborhoods stretching as far south as West Pullman and Brainerd, to West Side communities like Austin and East Garfield Park and to Northwest Side areas that usually don’t see much violence like Portage Park and Albany Park. One strangulation death also was reported.

Professor Tried to Boost Female Students
Grades Based Only on Their Gender

Thankfully, the plan didn´t work. A STEM professor at the University of Akron in Ohio was trying to boost his students´ grades - just because those students are women. On Monday, the professor, Liping Liu, sent an email to students letting them know that three groups of students may see their grades raised a "level or two," according to a screenshot of the email that was posted on Reddit. The screenshot has since been removed because it contained recipients’ email addresses, however, a redacted copy of it was provided by a student to Campus Reform.

Justice Department IG probing Comey
memos over classified material

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog is probing James Comey´s handling of classified information as part of the memos he gave to a friend documenting discussions with President Trump. A source familiar with the probe confirmed the inspector general is looking at whether classified information was given to unauthorized sources as part of a broader review of his communications outside the bureau -- including media contact. The developments put the ex-FBI boss in the crosshairs of an investigation just as his former deputy faces a criminal referral over a separate leak.

It turns out some deals are too good to be true. Officials investigating $700,000 of counterfeit cosmetics seized from 21 stalls at a Los Angeles shopping market last week reportedly found high levels of bacteria and traces of animal feces and urine in the makeup. “The best price is not always the best deal!” Los Angeles Police Capt. Marc Reina wrote on his Twitter account next to images of police looking at vendors in The Santee Alley.

A woman went on a gun rampage at the San Bruno, California, headquarters of YouTube and wounded at least three people before apparently killing herself. San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini told reporters Tuesday afternoon that there was “one person deceased, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.” Police encountered three other shooting victims, he said. Citing eyewitnesses who didn’t want to appear on camera, KTVU, the San Francisco Fox affiliate, reported that the woman killed herself after shooting her boyfriend. According to the Los Angeles Times, authorities believe it was a domestic dispute with no relationship to terrorism.

What´s causing Baltimore´s population loss?
It´s no mystery
Baltimore Sun, by David Placher    Original Article
Posted By: greggojo- 4/2/2018 12:17:08     Post Reply
With the U.S. Census Bureau reporting yet another year of population loss for the city, it doesn’t take an investigator to determine the causes. The city’s scary record of 343 homicides in 2017 affirms the city’s well-known reputation as a dangerous place to live. Even if 2018 has fewer homicides, it doesn’t take a fortune teller to predict that this year’s homicide rate will be high. Until the city substantially reduces its homicide and other crimes rates, people will continue to view the city as dangerous and be reluctant to stay or move here.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of
