Can someone contact the Secret Service about this site?

Here are some whack jobs who believe in the propaganda that's pumped into their heads everyday.

Child attempts suicide after being bullied at school for being a fan of My Little Pony

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- An 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after trying to commit suicide -- the victim of bullying at school.

It's not a new problem in North Carolina, but this puts a new face on the age-old problem as Michael Morones remains in WakeMed with a tube down his throat and potentially life-long brain damage.

Michael tried to kill himself, apparently because he could no longer take the torrent of bullying he was facing at school.

"He's the kid that never walks. He dances everywhere," said Michael's mother, Tiffany Morones-Suttle. "He's so full of energy. He's always on the move.

Michael's parents say he was that way even in the face of daunting bullying at school. Michael likes the cartoon "My Little Pony." It turns out, the cartoon has a growing, and perhaps unlikely fan club -- men and boys known as "Bronies."

Because of that, Michael was teased so much that ten days ago he decided to do something about it.

"He hung himself off the side of the bunk bed, off the railing," said Tiffany.

His parents got him to the hospital, but the damage had already been done. Oxygen to his brain had been cut off.

There was something about this story that made me want to spread it around the Internet. Maybe it's b/c we all know how tough it was growing up. I dunno. But if you want to donate toward this kid's medical expenses then GoFund has a page set up for his family. Here it is:

NCGOP seeks ouster of UNC-TV host

Source: WRAL/CBS

RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Republican Party is calling on UNC-TV to break its ties with host and columnist D.G. Martin.

Martin is the longtime host of the popular "NC Bookwatch" program on the statewide public television station. He's also a longtime political columnist whose left-leaning columns appear weekly in publications around the state. The two are separate ventures.

In his most recent column, Martin seems to compare supporters of Republican legislative leaders to apologists for the recently ousted Egyptian government and for the Nazi regime in Germany.

The column in question is titled "Egypt, Nazi Germany, and North Carolina," datelined July 29.

Dem strategist, fundraiser stabbed

Source: WRAL

Democratic strategist Nation Hahn and his wife, fundraiser Jamie Hahn, are hospitalized today after a bizarre stabbing attack Monday afternoon at their Raleigh home.

The couple were listed Tuesday Morning in critical condition at WakeMed. Sources close to the family say Jamie has been gravely injured.

Police say the suspect is Jonathon Wayne Broyhill, a longtime friend of the couple. Friends say Broyhill was best man at their 2009 wedding.

He's been charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Broyhill also was injured in the incident and is hospitalized in serious condition.

There's no indication yet what prompted the attack. Raleigh police say the information they've gathered to date "indicates the events underlying the incident were not domestic in nature."

Family: Clayton woman's body left in towed car after wreck

Source: WRAL

Smithfield, N.C. — Relatives of a Clayton woman said Tuesday that her body was found in her car days after it ran off a highway and was towed off.

Carolyn Ann Watkins' 2000 Pontiac was found in a watery ditch, down a steep embankment off Swift Creek Road, about 4 miles southwest of Smithfield on Friday and was towed to an impound lot, according to a report from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The report states "no driver (was) at the scene of this collision."

Watkins, 62, was last seen Thursday, but her family didn't report her missing to the Smithfield Police Department until Monday, when she failed to show up at work. They say authorities then found her body in the driver's seat of the Pontiac.

Spring Lake dog attacked with samurai sword

A dog in Spring Lake was injured after a neighbor got annoyed with the dog's barking and attacked it with a samurai sword.

Dr. John Lauby, director of Cumberland County Animal Services, said officials responded to the home Wednesday after they learned about the attack.

The unidentified assailant cut off about three-quarters of the dog's ear and left a large cut on the dog's shoulder area, Lauby said.

"It is ghastly," Lauby said. "Animals, they don't understand their ears cut off. They just deal with it."

Lauby said the owner initially thought the dog was hit by a car. However, a different neighbor who was not involved in the incident, told the owner what happened.

This has to be one of the most horrific stories that I have ever read. WTVD also has pictures and a related video on their site. I want to warn everyone before they watch the video to be prepared for some really graphic images. It's sickening that an individual did this to that dog. I hope they get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Russian nuclear bombers intercepted near Guam

Source: NBC

U.S. military officials tell NBC News that two Russian bombers, capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles, circled the U.S. island of Guam in the Western Pacific this week. U.S. Air Force F-15 jets scrambled from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam to intercept the bombers.

According to one military official, the Russian Bear bombers remained in international airspace, the encounter between the U.S. and Russian aircraft “stayed professional” and there was no incident. The official said it’s impossible to determine whether the Russian bombers carried any nuclear weapons.

U.S. long-range radars and satellites tracked the two bombers as they took off from northeastern Russia and headed south on a long-range flight that required “multiple refueling.” Japan also scrambled fighter jets as the bombers passed near but did not enter Japanese airspace.

Breaking: Reports of Possible Voter Suppression at Cincinnati Mother of Christ Church

I’ve received reports that behavior looking suspiciously like voter suppression is happening at precinct 24E in Cincinnati at Mother of Christ Church. I’ve heard from two sources, one of whom wishes to remain anonymous. Legally, nothing is considered voter suppression unless it is proven that there was the intention to suppress votes. Proving intention is a tricky thing. However, the outcome, if these reports are accurate, is that people who wanted to vote in this election may be discouraged from voting or not have their votes counted unless the election is close enough to warrant counting provisional ballots.

According to these reports, voters who come to Mother of Christ Church erroneously – and there are multiple polling locations on the same street so it’s easy to get confused – are being encouraged to fill out provisional ballots rather than being told where their correct precinct is.

In addition, my sources have multiple reports of people who are registered at that precinct being forced to fill out provisional ballots even if they’re on the books at the location and have correct ID on them. The deputy judge, Dan Unger (in the photo bellow), reportedly came outside and told all the voter protection and election protection people to stop talking to voters. I was told that Unger also said they are not making people fill out provisional ballots, which is contradicted by the reports my sources are getting.

Daniel Rajaiah of Clifton Ohio posted the following photo on his Facebook page this morning.







“This is the election official Dan Unger who is forcing many African Americans to vote provisionally at my precinct. I asked him why and he just kicked me out of the church. Elections lawyers are on their way!”

Voter intimidation concerns hit Wyoming

Source: Star-Tribune

Two brothers who own a chain of restaurants in Wyoming warned of canceled health insurance for managers, reduced hours for full-time employees and massive layoffs if President Barack Obama is re-elected and the Affordable Care Act remains intact.

Tim and Rob Woodward say they’re not the only proprietors to do so.

The Woodwards own Bagelmakers and Subway restaurants in Wyoming and Colorado. Tim lives in Laramie and Rob in Loveland, Colo. They presented a possible bleak future for their 41-restaurant chain and 341 employees in an op-ed piece published in the Laramie Boomerang, Oct. 24. Citing decreased earnings and minimal job growth if the ACA stands, the Woodwards vowed to terminate a majority of their employees by 2014, predicted more than $600,000 in penalties per year and expected to liquidate two-thirds of their restaurants because of additional costs if Obama wins Tuesday’s election.

The Woodwards support Republican candidate Mitt Romney and want the ACA repealed.

Ethics group calls for probe into email

Source: Durango Herald

An ethics-advocacy organization is seeking an investigation into whether a Pagosa Springs business owner engaged in voter intimidation when he sent an email to employees warning that they might lose their jobs if Barack Obama wins the election.

Colorado Ethics Watch, a liberal-leaning organization, sent a letter to 6th Judicial District Attorney Todd Risberg on Tuesday afternoon seeking an investigation into the email sent by Chris Smith, owner of the Visiting Angels senior home-care facility in Pagosa Springs.

“We think it’s important that someone bring this to the attention of the authorities,” Director Luis Toro said. “We understand people subjected to intimidation tactics don’t always want to speak out. People might be unwilling to come forward, so we’re stepping in.”

Smith sent the email to his employees earlier this month, warning them their hours could be cut and they could lose their health care and jobs if President Barack Obama is re-elected next month and the Affordable Care Act is not repealed.
