A 22-year-old Texas man is facing felony charges following allegations he attempted to steal a yacht from a Seattle yacht club.
King County prosecutors contend Michael Bray went pirate on Sept. 15 and attempted to make off with Para-a-gon, a 42-foot Bayliner yacht. According to police, Bray rammed several vessels at the Queen City Yacht Club, located off Boyer Avenue East on Portage Bay, before a resident shot him in the face with a birdshot-loaded shotgun.
In the year 2000 the United States ranked second in the world for economic freedom. Today, the US has dropped to a dismal seventeenth, thanks to overspending, disregard for the rule of law by elected leaders, and increasing regulations. Economic freedom is what has brought about the standard of living we all enjoy today. I shudder to even think what we’ll rank after Obamacare has been fully implemented.
Mark Levin was on with CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper today and spent much of the interview responding to Obama’s statement on Iran and the Budget before transitioning to his new book and saving the Republic. As always Levin didn’t hold back on calling out the president and Harry Reid for being the real problem at the center of this ‘crisis’ and also pointing out how ludicrous it would be for Obama to deal with Iran diplomatically over their nuclear program. And much more.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27 (UPI) –
A Solano County, Calif., wind farm would be the first renewable energy project in the nation allowed to kill eagles under a federal plan, a U.S. agency said.
Under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal, outlined in a draft environmental report released Thursday, the Shiloh IV Wind Project would be issued a golden eagle take permit for its 3,500-acre plant in the Montezuma Hills, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

City to Arm Staten Island Police With Anti-Overdose Drugs
After controversially barring city-run hospitals from prescribing too many pain pills, the city is ramping up its efforts to clamp down on prescription pill abuse.
Under a new pilot program announced this morning, the city will begin arming cops with anti-overdose drugs that they can administer to people before medical personnel arrive.
Senators from both parties joined together on Friday to vote for cloture and pass a continuing resolution that would fund Obamacare.
Despite Senator Ted Cruz’s 21-hour speech just days prior warning of the dangers of funding the healthcare overhaul that serves as a model of economic instability, establishment Republicans have been incredibly hostile to the maneuver as Cruz’s speech shined a harsh, exposing light on the Republican efforts to posture as opponents of Obamacare while still allowing it to be funded.
With 25 Republican Senators voting for the funding of Obamacare, the vote easily passed to avert a shutdown with a vote of 79-19.
Senator John McCain hires Al-Qaeda advisor (who was previously fired for lying)
Senator John McCain has been shilling for al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood opposition on Syria. He is more clueless than complicit but his refusal to consider the facts makes him very dangerous.
Even when he made his stealthy trip to Syria, his photo-op showed him posing with kidnappers and killers. One would think that would have given the ornery old fool great pause, but that would have been the reaction of a rational man.
The inescapable fact that liberals and socialists are BAT CRAP INSANE has been on FULL DISPLAY once again this week.
You just can’t make this stuff UP.

Mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio today criticized the New York Times for its depiction of his efforts supporting Latin American revolutionaries, expressing surprise at how the paper had treated the story, which has dominated the campaign trail since it was published Sunday.
In an interview with WNYC’s Brain Lehrer, Mr. de Blasio was asked whether he felt the story, headlined “A Mayoral Hopeful Now, de Blasio Was Once a Young Leftist,” had been fair.

Newark: Behind the violence
I got connected to the Street Authority, who was like our all-access pass through dangerous territory in Newark. No matter what colors the gang bangers were wearing, they all saluted him and left us alone to see for ourselves what’s going on.
When I saw a nice residential area in the notorious South Ward, I had my doubts it would live up to its bad rep. But the Street Authority warned looks can be deceiving. He told us it’s “turned up,” meaning a lot of violence lately. It’s also home to one of the city’s most promising rappers, Riq Bubz, who showed me around.

Girls ‘have chests flattened out’ to disguise the onset of puberty
A hidden form of abuse known as “breast ironing”, in which girls as young as 10 have their chests pounded with hot objects to disguise the onset of puberty, could be taking place in Britain.
The mutilation is a traditional practice from Cameroon designed to deter unwanted male attention, pregnancy and rape by delaying the signs that a girl is becoming a woman. Experts believe that the custom is being practiced amongst the several thousand Cameroonians now living here.
NEW YORK (BHN) - Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was the special VIP guest of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday night. Rouhani and the Iranian delegation are in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.
The new Iranian leader notably snubbed President Obama earlier, but like other sworn enemies of the United States before him, made time to cozy up to the controversial calypso singer-turned Jew-hating false prophet.
Sources called the chemistry between the pair “electric,” and suggested with Muammar Gaddafi now dead, “Hassi” may have moved to first position on someones speed dial. MORE
Keystone Pipeline Threatens The Pallid Sturgeon!
From the Politico:
Pipeline threatens vulnerable species, report says
By TALIA BUFORD | September 26, 2013
The Keystone XL pipeline could have devastating effects on at least a dozen threatened and endangered species and the habitats that lie in the project’s path, according to a new analysis from the Center for Biological Diversity.
Trans-Canada applied for a permit for the Keystone Pipeline extension exactly five years (and a week) ago. And it took the environmentalists five years to find some species the pipeline will endanger?
The report, released Wednesday by the environmental advocacy group, found that power lines used to operate the pipeline pose collision threats for birds and bats;
Unlike wind turbines.
Bill de Blasio won 38% of the Jewish vote in the New York City Democratic Primary. Despite the liberal reputation of Jewish voters in the Big Apple, these numbers were roughly even with those of other religions and demographics.
The latest Marist poll, which shows de Blasio with a 43% lead, also shows the Jewish vote leaning toward him by only 55%. Republican challenger Joe Lhota scores 36% of the Jewish vote — his best numbers among any group except White Catholics (41%) and Conservatives (39%).
De Blasio’s weak polling may reflect the growing numbers of New York City’s Orthodox Jews, who tend toward a natural conservatism, but it may also reflect wariness toward any candidate who favors undermining the police and dispensing with the city’s needed fiscal reforms.
