Two people jumped from the George Washington Bridge within minutes of each other Wednesday, the Port Authority said.

One person jumped from the upper level while another plunged from the span's lower level, both around 4:20 p.m., according to Port Authority police.

The first person abandoned a car on the lower level and jumped, said police spokesman Joe Pentangelo, citing a preliminary report. The second person rode a bike onto the upper level and jumped over the railing.Investigators had witnesses to the apparently unrelated cases, Pentangelo said.Both bodies were recovered and taken to the 125th Street boat basin in Manhattan, the spokesman added.The New York City Office of Emergency Management warned of "extensive delays" in both directions on the bridge due to NYPD activity.

Sarah Palin uses phony story about Bible-hating teacher to warn against Christian persecution

09 FEB 2015 AT 12:10 ET

Sarah Palin passed along a debunked claim about a Missouri boy who was allegedly forbidden by his teacher from reading the Bible to himself at school.

The reality TV show star and former vice presidential candidate posted a video on SarahPalinChannel.com about the boy’s claims, which briefly went viral but fell apart under examination, and asked viewers to quench their outrage by buying her latest book.

“In my book, Good Tidings and Great Joy, I talk about how our religious freedom is being eroded by angry atheists with attorneys,” Palin said. “Here’s another example.”

A Fox local affiliate in Kansas City reported the boy’s claims in January, but the school’s principal told Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website and the Christian Post that he found no evidence the incident occurred.

No wonder your party is through with you . Even the lying Fox news exposed her lies .

Hmm, I could dream can I?

Brian Williams suspension proves one thing

It proves that Fox news can get away with constant daily lies cause everyone knows they aren't real journalist and they will never be held to any standard.


GOP to White House: What's your ObamaCare backup plan if we win?

GOP lawmakers have a big question for President Obama about the upcoming Supreme Court case that could undo much of his signature healthcare law: What happens if we win?

Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter Wednesday to the head of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), demanding the administration show its hand in case the court rules against ObamaCare this summer.

“Given HHS’s responsibilities, we believe it is prudent that the Department plan for the full range of potential outcomes and consequences of the Court’s decision,” leaders of the committee wrote in a letter to HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell.

The lawmakers are seeking any and all information related to the administration's preparation — starting with "all scenarios considered or evaluated."

Both parties have acknowledged that the case, King v. Burwell, is the biggest threat to the healthcare law while Obama remains in office.


* I know the GOP back up plan...no healthcare for you*

Teen walks into Leesburg High School with gun

LEESBURG, Fla. — Channel 9 has learned an Apopka teenager walked into Leesburg High School with a gun early Wednesday afternoon.

School officials said the gun wasn’t loaded but the 16-year-old, who wasn’t a student at the school, had ammunition on him.
School officials said a student warned a school deputy about the teen and that deputy took the teenager into custody within minutes.
The deputy found a .38 caliber revolver on the teen, as well as hollow point bullets in his pockets.

During the investigation, authorities determined the teen had been reported missing from the Apopka area.
It's unclear why he showed up at the school.

The teen was taken into custody and will be booked in to the Lake County Jail for possession of a firearm on school grounds.
School officials said there will be extra deputies on campus Thursday morning.


*But, but we don't need any gun control laws

Watch The Moment A Man Finds Out He’s Surrounded By People He Saved From The Holocaust


In 1938, Winton headed an operation to save Jewish Czechoslovakian children from the Holocaust, according to Wikipedia. He found homes in Britain for nearly 700 children. Many of them would be orphaned by Auschwitz. His scheme was known in Czechoslovakia as Kindertransport. And it all happened after he went to Prague instead of a skiing holiday in the Alps. The British press would later dub him the “British Schindler”.
Winton spent years dealing with the guilt he felt over the children he wasn’t able to save. Opposing Views reports:

In 1988 his wife discovered a scrapbook, lists of names, and journals that described his rescue plan. She convinced him to go public with his story – whereupon he appeared on That’s Life.

And then this happened....


This is so beautiful.
