A website in North Carolina alleged last week that the brother of disgraced U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder employs illegal aliens at his business.
William Holder, who owns four McDonald's franchises in Wake County, North Carolina, denied that he hires illegal workers, although the Carolina Journal Online alleged that a reporter was party to conversations at which employees admitted they were in the country illegally and did not have permission to work here.
The highly-hyped “Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” debate on October 6 between Fox News Channel personality Bill O'Reilly and Comedy Central funny man Jon Stewart proved a nearly perfect foil of O'Reilly.
George Zimmerman, the man charged with second-degree murder in connection with the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, on Feb. 26, 2012, will file a defamation lawsuit against NBC.
Zimmerman is retaliating because NBC edited an audiotape of Zimmerman’s phone call to police the night of the shooting, which made Zimmerman appear to be a racist who was pursuing Martin because Martin was black.
“Social Security is structurally sound,” President Barack Obama declared during the October 3 presidential debate in Denver.

The state of Oklahoma is moving to end WIC contracts with Planned Parenthood.

U.S. federal authorities have been quietly supporting certain Mexican criminal empires, especially the Sinaloa drug cartel, in a bid to solidify the syndicates’ reign as dominant powerbrokers in particular territories, according to leaked e-mails from a U.S.-based Mexican diplomat to the private intelligence firm Stratfor. If cartel chiefs cooperate with authorities, “governments will allow controlled drug trades,” the source wrote.
Other information unearthed so far in the leak, much coming from a variety of sources, was equally explosive. One 2011 e-mail from someone described by Stratfor as “a US law enforcement officer with direct oversight of border investigations,” for example, indicated that American troops were already operating in Mexico under the guise of the drug war.
Almost 2,400 Americans who collected unemployment benefits in 2009 resided in households with annual incomes of at least $1 million, according to a recent report compiled by the Congressional Research Service (CRS). The 10-page report was published after more than a million people exhausted their unemployment benefits during the second quarter of 2012, when well over 4.5 million people filed for jobless claims.
A Pennsylvania judge has issued a preliminary injunction against the state’s photo ID law for voters, asserting that the state did not adequately ensure that people could easily acquire the necessary identification in order to vote on Election Day. As noted by the Associated Press, the ruling “could help President Barack Obama in a presidential battleground state.”
