French Soldier Stabbed While on Patrol near Paris … Suspect was Tall, Bearded, North African Origin and Wearing a White Arab-style Tunic
A 23 year old French soldier was stabbed in the neck while on a neighborhood patrol west of Paris. The soldier and two others were apart of France’s Vigipirate anti-terror surveillance. Police are looking for a suspect who was tall, bearded, about 35 years old, of North Afican origin and wait for it, wait for it … wearing a white Arab-style tunic. Good grief, they want to know what the suspects motivation was in stabbing and attempting to kill a soldier. Really? Do we really need to figure out the motivation? This follows the horrific murder at the hands of two terrorists in London where a British soldier was savagely killed as the men yelled “Allahu Akhbar”.
A French soldier patrolling a business neighborhood west of Paris was stabbed in the neck and injured on Saturday by a man who fled the scene and is being sought by police, President Francois Hollande said.
The 23-year-old was patrolling in uniform with two other soldiers as part of France’s Vigipirate anti-terror surveillance plan when he was approached from behind around 6 p.m. and attacked with a knife or a box-cutter.
A police union spokesman said surveillance footage of the attacker showed him as tall and bearded, aged about 35, possibly of North African origin and wearing a white Arab-style tunic.
Hollande, in the Ethiopian city of Addis Ababa, commented on the stabbing to say police were hunting for the attacker but did not provide any details about his identity or any possible motivation for the attack.
I am sensing a trend here. Was this an attempted copy-cat murder? When will these European countries realize their immigration policies are destroying their countries. Hell, for that matter, when will the United States realize the same? When will countries admit that Islam seems to be the problem and this worldwide jihad? It used to be that immigrants made countries better, now they seem to be making them worse.
Fox News Poll: Overwhelming Majority Distrust the IRS and Majority Think White House Knew About IRS Targeting Conservative & Tea Party Non-Profit Organizations
Very bad polling numbers for Barack Obama White House and the IRS scandal.
According to a Fox News Poll, the American people have become very suspect of the IRS and are also suspect of the White House involvement in the IRS scandal that saw the Internal Revenue Service Department intentionally and purposely target conservative and Tea Party non-profit groups. The bottom has all but dropped out of anyone having confidence in the IRS. And honestly, why should anyone have any confidence in a government organization who has been given far too much power and now has vindictively and in a partisan manner gone after a group of people based on their political beliefs. When they were called before Congress to answer for their actions to “We the People,” they acted defiantly, smugly, claimed they had done nothing wrong and in some cases plead the 5th. Some resigned. Some like Lois Lerner were asked to resign, refused and were put on administrative leave with $172K pay.
Confidence in the IRS has dropped significantly. The poll finds 42 percent of voters have “a great deal” (7 percent) or “some” (35 percent) confidence in the agency. That’s down from 62 percent who had at least some confidence in the IRS in May 2003 (the last time the Fox News poll asked Americans to rate the IRS).
Seventy-eight percent of voters are concerned that certain groups have been singled out, including 50 percent who are “very” concerned and 28 percent “somewhat” concerned.
Poll results can be read HERE.
Voters are concerned about the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups for unfair treatment, and over half think the White House either knew it was happening or — worse yet — was actually behind the operation.
That’s according to a Fox News poll released Tuesday.
The IRS recently admitted it targeted tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when the groups sought tax-exempt status.
Most voters think the White House was involved in the IRS scandal in some way: 37 percent think the administration knew it was going on but didn’t initiate the policy, while another 29 percent believe the White House directed the IRS to go after those groups.
The American people have lost all confidence in the IRS. Which begs the question, how on earth can the IRS now implement and enforce Obamacare? The IRS has no credibility to effectively enforce Obamacare without doing so in a partisan manner that would single out certain individuals and groups. Whether they be Conservatives or Liberals, it matters none, the IRS is a tainted government entity who has done what we suspected for many years … become way to powerful, full of themselves, vindictive and the ability to cause such harm without any regard.

‘Til Death Do Us Part … Pennsylvania Bride Na Cola Franklin Found Guilty of Murder for Stabbing Her Fiancé Dead Just Hours Before Wedding
Damn, talk about taking the wedding vows, “til death do us part” a bit too seriously. Although, it never even got to that as death occurred mere hours before the wedding.
Oh those dreaded bachelor parties. 32 year old Pennsylvania bride Na Cola Franklin was found guilty Thursday by an Allentown, PA jury of killing her fiancé, 36 year old Billy Brewster, on the day of their wedding. The jury found Na Cola Franklin guilty in the death of her fiancé after deliberating about three hours in Lehigh County Court. Franklin will be sentenced on July 16, where she could get life in prison. Franklin was claiming self defense. Hmm, think we have heard that one before in the Arias trial. Franklin’s attorney said an appeal is likely. What’s he going to appeal, that Jodi Arias stabbed her ex-boyfriend many more times than she did her fiancé?
It was supposed to be her special day.
But a bride-to-be who stabbed her fiancé in the heart just hours before they walked down the aisle has now been convicted of his murder.
Na Cola Franklin, 32, was found guilty on Thursday by a jury in Allentown, Pa. of fatally plunging the blade into 36-year-old Billy Brewster’s chest.
The couple were arguing at 2 a.m. on the day of their nuptials — Aug. 11, 2012 — after Brewster returned to their Whitehall Township apartment drunk.
He’d been out for an impromptu bachelor party.
GOOD GRIEF … Wedding Bells for Joran Van der Sloot, To Be Married in Two Weeks While Serving for Murder of Stephany Flores at Piedras Gordas Prison (Still Waiting Extortion Charges in US in Connection with Death of Natalee Holloway) … Unlucky Bride Leidy Figueroa
ARE YOU JOKING … JORAN VAN DER SLOOT TO BE MARRIED?
As reported at Ad.nl, Joran Van der Sloot is to be married within two weeks. Yes that Joran Van der Sloot who is currently serving 28 years in Piedras Gordas prison in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores and the same “Sporter” who should have already been in prison for the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. The unlucky or insane to be bride is reports as Leidy Figueroa. I am sure her parents are so proud. But of course Joran Van der Sloot is marrying out of love. NOT!!! So why would Joran Van der Sloot marry a Peruvian woman? It can’t be for the conjugal visits, one does not have to be married to do such. Could it be to become a Peruvian citizen through marriage? However, I am not sure why this would matter for Van der Sloot seeing that both Peru and the Netherlands have extradition treaties with the United States. At some point Van der Sloot is going to be extradited to the United States and an Alabama courtroom to face extortion charges he perpetrate against Beth Holloway in the death of her daughter, Natalee Holloway.
We have heard these rumors before, looks like this time it might just be true. Where is the couple registered at, Murderers ‘R Us?
Of course the timing of this has nothing to do with the fact that Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen from Mountainbrook, went missing in Aruba on May 30, 2005.
Rough translation of AD.nl article via Google below:
According to Maximo Altez, the lawyer of Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch convicted murderer, serving a sentence of 28-year sentence in a Peruvian cell, to get married. “Joran is currently busy with the preparations,” said the counsel against Heart of the Netherlands.
Altez expects the consent is issued within two weeks before the wedding but says that there is a lot of paperwork for a wedding in the Piedras Gordas prison is needed. The ‘happy’ is Joran Peruvian fiancé Leidy Figueroa.
Marry for love The marriage would be ‘out of love’ were born, and are not intended to prevent. Possible extradition to the United States “Being married does not change his situation,” says the lawyer. Van der Sloot in America must stand trial for the extortion of the mother of the disappeared in Aruba American Natalee Holloway.
Joran, brought in connection since her disappearance in 2005, Holloway her mother would have kept wanting to tell where her daughter is buried fee. Van der Sloot only part of the requested money in hands, and had traveled to South America.
In Peru he murdered in his hotel room, the student Stephany Flores. He fled to Chile, but was arrested and sentenced in Peru. Marrying a Peruvian, Van der Sloot, according to local media, provide the Peruvian nationality. That fact would complicate extradition to the U.S..

Operation Swill: Numerous NJ Bars & Restaurants, Including Many TGI Fridays, Busted For Substituting Top Scotch With Rubbing Alchohol
OPERATION SWILL – Only in Jersey!!!
Talk about your consumer fraud. Twenty-nine New Jersey bars and restaurants, including 13 TGI Fridays, have been accused of substituting cheep booze, and in some cases rubbing alcohol and worse, for top-shelf brands while charging premium prices. RUBBING ALCOHOL?!? There is some good PR for TGIF, NOT! According to the Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa, Operation Swill, investigators collected 1,000 open bottles of vodka, gin, rum, scotch, whiskey and tequila from the wells of the bars. I guess we now know what the Soprano’s have been up to since last seeing Tony with his family in a NJ diner. On a larger level, Doug Ross has hit the nail on the proverbial head, “Chains like T.G.I. Friday’s that engaged in the practice, franchises notwithstanding, will have to prove they’re doing the right thing on a national basis.”
T.F.I.F may be changing their name to T.G.I.T.S.A … Thank God It’s Top Shelf Alcohol. On a personal note, I have actually been in 3 or 4 of those TGIF’s in the past. Great, I a was drinking beer, or was it?
At one bar, a mixture that included rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring was sold as scotch. In another, premium liquor bottles were refilled with water – and apparently not even clean water at that.
State officials provided those new details Thursday on raids they conducted a day earlier as part of a yearlong investigation dubbed Operation Swill.
Twenty-nine New Jersey bars and restaurants, including 13 TGI Fridays, were accused of substituting cheap booze – or worse – for top-shelf brands while charging premium prices.
As part of Operation Swill, investigators collected 1,000 open bottles of vodka, gin, rum, scotch, whiskey and tequila from the wells of the bars, state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said.
‘This alleged scheme is a dishonest ruse to increase profits and is a slap in the face of the consumer,’ Chiesa said.
Within seven days, the establishments must turn over records to help state authorities determine how many patrons were overcharged and by how much.
2 Year Old Daisy Jo Holland Missing Since May 24, 2013 at Wapiti Park Campground the Near Elk River in Elk River, MN (Update: Divers Searching River)
Tragic Memorial Day Weekend story …
Two year old Daisy Jo Holland has been missing since Friday night, May 24, 2013 around 8:00 pm at the Wapiti Park Campground near the Elk River in Elk River, Minnesota. Elk River Police Chief says several children, including Holland, were playing while parents set up camp around 8 p.m. Friday when suddenly the child was out of sight. The campground is located at 18746 Troy Street in Elk River, MN. The Elk River Police Department. Crews were searching both the campgrounds and nearby Elk River Friday and Saturday morning. According to Sheriff’s officials, dogs have tracked her scent to the edge of the Elk River.

Daisy is described as follows:
- Shoulder length blonde hair.
- Blue eyes.
- Approximately 2 feet tall.
- Approximately 30 lbs.
- Last seen wearing black pants and a pink shirt that imprinted with “Hello Kitty”.
UPDATE I: The search continues for missing 2 year old Daisy Jo Holland. We can only hope that the toddler wandered into the woods, rather than falling into the river.
Crews began searching the campground area and river Friday night.
Early Saturday, the focus of the search shifted to an area along the river bank where search dogs picked up a scent about 200 yards from where the family was camping. A dive team has been called in to search the river.
Hundreds of volunteers and rescue workers are combing the water and woods near an Elk River campground, searching for a two-year-old girl who went missing Friday night.
Boats with divers are on a stretch of the Elk River that flows by the Wapiti Park Campground where Daisy Jo Holland was staying with family and friends before disappearing at about 8 p.m. A steep and eroded bank overlooks the river near the campsites and officials said Saturday morning that dogs had followed Daisy’s scent to the river’s edge.
Residents from Sherburne County and beyond responded to word of the missing toddler, gathering at the Gateway Church on the west edge of town, where authorities organized search parties to flood the fields and forests adjoining the private campground.
If anyone has any information regarding Daisy’s whereabouts is asked to call Sherburne County Dispatch at 763-765-3595.
Missing University of Rhode Island Student Matthew Royer Found Safe in North Carolina … Missing on His Own Accord?
Missing 21 year old University of Rhode Island student Matthew Royer has been found unharmed in North Carolina. Matthew Royer had been missing since May 16, 2013 when he was traveling home for the summer to Collegeville, PA from his apartment at the University of Rhode Island. Surveillance video had Royer within 30 minutes from his home,but he never showed. Royer was located on Thursday but details about what took him to North Carolina have not been released. The family is asking for their privacy. According to a police statement, “The family requests that the media not contact them nor reveal his location as they wish to consider this a private and closed matter.”
Missing University of Rhode Island student Matthew Royer has been located unharmed in North Carolina, according to authorities and his family, but how he got there remains a mystery.
Royer, 21, had been last seen on May 16 on the University of Rhode Island campus. The college junior had moved out of his apartment and returned the keys, according to ABC News’ Philadelphia station WPVI.
Royer was on his way home to Skippack Township, Pa., for the summer where his family was waiting for him. He was supposed to report for work at a golf course the day after he returned home, but when he did not show up, his family reported him missing.
Royer was located on Thursday but details about what took him to North Carolina have not been released.
Make no mistake about it, I am glad that Matthew Royer has been found safe. But I have my reservations on how this might affect searches for other individuals in his age group. When some one goes “purposely” missing and the family calls for resources to help find their loved one, the question arises, “Who should be Responsible for the costs of the searches”? That is a valid question. Obviously authorities cannot and better not just say like Denis Jacobs, lead investigator in the Natalee Holloway case in Aruba, “No, this happens all the time. Just go on down to Carlos N‘ Charlie’s and have a beer. She’ll show up sometime. She probably got drunk or fell in love and ran off with someone for a few days.” But, what happens when some one does go missing on their own accord? One thing is for certain, I hope this family gets some help for Matthew as these were not the actions of a right thinking person. Hopefully they will so that we are not later reporting further of Matthew Royer again.
GOP Senatorial Candidate Gabriel Gomez Calls Democrat Opponent Rep. Ed Markey “Pond Scum” After Being Compared to Osama Bin Laden
Massachusetts US Senate Race: With all due respect to pond scum …
Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez called opponent Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) “pond scum” during a recent interview. Gomez did so in a response to a question regarding a dirty and disgusting ad where his opponent Ed Markey compared Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, to Osama bin Laden in an internet video that placed their images side-by-side. As Gomez stated during his interview, maybe Markey does doe realize that it was Navy Seals who actually killed Bin Laden? The internet video is truly reprehensible. For Markey to put out his first video comparing Gomez to Bin Laden, because Gomez was critical of President Obama because they released so much classified information on the Navy Seals regarding the raid that killed Bin Laden that puts the troops in harms way.
“I don’t think there’s anything more offensive,” Gomez said. “You know I’ve got four young kids,
and they gotta sit there and gotta see an ad with their dad — who served honorably,
talk to anybody I served with — whether as a pilot or as a SEAL, anybody I worked with.
And for him to be as dirty and low, pond scum, like to put me up next to bin Laden,
he’s just gotta be called what he is. It’s that simple.”
Gomez went on to say, Congressman Markey has been around for 40 years, he know what he is doing. Hmm, I thought we honored Navy Seals who defend America’s freedoms and liberties. Guess not when it comes to Massachusetts liberal Ed Markey. Is this what we need in the US Senate? Funny how Barack Obama used the death of Bin Laden and the heroic efforts of our US Navy Seals for his political advantage and his photo-op of Obama in the “Situation Room” yet Obama was no where to be found when the Benghazi Consulate was being attacked by terrorists, Ambassador Stevens was missing and they were begging for help.
Barack Obama Fails to Return Salute US Marine While Boarding Marine One on His Way to Give Commencement Address at Naval Academy
Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief failed to return salute US Marine while boarding Marine One.
Who knew that President Obama needed a teleprompter or cue cards that say, “salute Marine while boarding helicopter?” As reported at the Weekly Standard, President Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. UNREAL. Obama later came out and shook the hand of the Marine as obviously someone on Marine One most likely old him to. How does a Commander in Chief not return salute a US Marine? Especially seeing that he was getting on Marine One to give a Commencement Address at the US Naval Academy. What is wrong with this man? What an embarrassment.
What else would we expect from the Campaigner in Chief, the Divider in Chief and the Golfer in Chief? From Salon, Twitter shreds Obama for non-salute.
Of course Obama had no problem using the Marines as his personal umbrella holder, but some how he could not see fit to salute a Marine, on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.
