Fed-up Illinois homeowners consider moving: 'It’s not just the property taxes on my home; it’s all of them'


By Chicago Tribune, Sep. 29, 2017

Even after watching Hurricane Irma wreak havoc on Florida, Rik Mallin is sticking to his plan.

Mallin is fixing up his Villa Park home so that he can sell it, move to the Florida Panhandle and escape Illinois’ rising taxes.

“I’m getting out,” said Mallin, 67. “It’s not just the property taxes on my home; it’s all of them.” He figures his taxes in Florida, where there is no personal income tax, will be about a quarter of what he’s paying now.

The jihadi – wearing a GoPro-style body camera – records the gun battle as his position comes under attack.

One grenade can be seen ripping into the pillar of the bombed out building he is sheltering in, showering him in debris.

But instead of retreating the dopey fanatic moves forward to engage his foes.

Seconds later, another shell is fired and scores a direct hit on the militant – sending him spinning to ground.

In Libya Strike, Military Shows New Lethal Powers Under Trump


By US News, Sep. 29, 2017

U.S. forces in Africa this week staged what would have been an otherwise unremarkable attack against Islamic State extremists but for one key detail: The operation was the first to rely on authorities granted under the Trump administration that allow the military to conduct lethal strikes outside a designated war zone and without explicit White House approval in advance.

An airstrike carried out on Tuesday in Libya killed "several" fighters from the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, according to a Thursday statement from U.S. Africa Command. It followed a similar drone attack last week that Trump personally approved, the first in Libya since the one President Barack Obama authorized in January the day before he stepped down from office.

EXCLUSIVE: Mainstream Media Reporting About Twitter ‘Fake News’ Is 100% FALSE


By Daily Caller, Sep. 29, 2017

The only problem: A review of the report the media is relying on shows their conclusion is not accurate.

CNN reported that fake news on Twitter was higher in swing states. The report was accompanied by the chyron, “How ‘Fake News’ Spread During Election Week.”

Open Letter to the NCAA


By National Review, Sep. 29, 2017

If you’re a fan of a big-time college-sports program, you should be very afraid. The FBI is on the prowl. This week, the Department of Justice announced it had indicted ten people — including four assistant basketball coaches — as part of a wide-ranging probe that alleged a scheme to bribe coaches to direct recruits to specific basketball programs and then to pressure players to sign with specific shoe and apparel companies. The allegations included claims that at least one prize recruit was paid $100,000 to sign with the Louisville Cardinals.

By Daily Wire, Sep. 28, 2017

The Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, responded to the NFL this week by announcing that they stand for the national anthem because the sacrifices made by American heroes are "far too sacred" to protest.

"The LFL recognizes everyone's First Amendment right to protest, but our nation's flag and anthem are far too sacred," the league said Tuesday. "Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty."

Lake Ozark bar criticized for NFL jersey doormat seen as racist


By Komu, Sep. 26, 2017

LAKE OZARK – A Lake of the Ozarks bar owner was taking heat Tuesday for what at least one passer-by saw as a racist doormat out front.

“It’s not a race thing,” said Jason Burle, who owns the S.N.A.F.U Bar near the Bagnell Dam. “A lot of people want to twist it around to be a race thing.”

Burle said he ordered two NFL jerseys to be used as doormats outside his bar after NFL players started kneeling during the national anthem at football games.

Why didn't TV networks show angry, booing NFL fans Sunday or Monday?


By Philly, Sep. 28, 2017

With President Donald Trump's attacks against protesting NFL players still reverberating, the league's TV partners decided to air live coverage of the national anthem before Week 3 games. Those partners left out a key element of the coverage: crowd shots of angry fans.

Networks typically do not televise the national anthem except for the Super Bowl and other special occasions, but they recognized there would be intense viewer interest this past weekend.

Trump tax plan eliminates big perk for high-tax states


By NY Post, Sep. 27, 2017

WASHINGTON — President Trump will release a sweeping plan Wednesday to cut taxes and simplify the tax code that will eliminate the deduction for state and local taxes — a move that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has warned would be a “death blow” for New York.

Despite fierce opposition from high-tax states when the idea was first floated, the Trump administration is pushing ahead with the repeal, which would remove state and local income and property taxes as deductions on federal returns.
