And the dominoes begin to fall …
In the wake of Josh Duggar’s admission that he molested young girls, including his sisters, when he was a teen … TLC has pulled the reality show, ’19 Kids and Counting’ from their schedule. Obviously, there has been tremendous outrage by the public since Josh Duggar’s admission of molestation. TLC said in a brief statement on Friday, “We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.” The statement said the shows were being pulled from the schedule “effective immediately.”
Josh Duggar Allegedly Admitted to Sexually Molesting 5 Minor Girls, Including Sisters
“19 Kids and Counting” has been dropped from TLC’s schedule in the wake of outrage over reality star Josh Duggar’s admission that he inappropriately touched some of his sisters as a teenager, according to multiple reports.
FOX411 has reached out repeatedly to the network but has received no comment on the show’s fate. The network had just run a “19 Kids” marathon on Thursday night, and a scan of TLC’s schedule show other Duggar family-related shows are still scheduled.
Josh Duggar resigned his position at the Family Research Council Thursday after reports surfaced that he sexually assaulted four female siblings in the large family, plus an additional female victim.
ISIS Execute a Man with a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Then Whoop it Up Like a Bunch of Yahoo’s (VIDEO)
ISIS SAVAGES ESCALATE THEIR EXECUTIONS …
ISIS steps up their barbaric actions and executed yet another individual. However, this time they did not cut off his head, they instead blew the man up with a shoulder-fired rocket propelled grenade. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What will these savages think up of next? ISIS, or as Barack Obama calls them, the JV, used a weapon designed to be used against tanks to kill a person. In doing so, following the savagery, they danced around shooting their guns and whooped it up with shouts of ‘Allah is greatest’.
No longer content with executing their prisoners with knives and guns, Islamic State militants have ratcheted up their savagery by blasting a man to death with a bazooka.
Shocking video emerged today showing the captive exploding into a ball of flames after being shot with a rocket-propelled grenade that is designed to take out tanks and aircraft.
Amid sickening whoops of joy and shouts of ‘Allah is greatest’, the barbaric jihadis continue to fire their rifles at the dead man as they move in and surround his body.
The man, named by the group as Ibrahim Shraideh, was said to be a member of the Al Shaitat tribe from the town of Abu Hamam in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province.

State Department Begins Realease of Clinton Emails: Nearly 300 New Hillary Emails Released and It Confirm She Received Now-Classified Information on Private Email
Imagine that, a Hillary Clinton email document dump by the State Department on a Friday before a long Memorial Day holiday weekend.
HILLARY CLINTON, YOU GOT MAIL … The US State Department has released the first round of emails from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on Friday. Spokeswoman Marie Harf said that the publication includes 296 emails given to a House committee investigating Benghazi. One thing that is now true, Hillary Clinton did received, what is now considered, classified information on her private email account that was stored on her unsecured private email server. Yet another reason why you don’t use a private email server as one never knows when unclassified info will become classified.
Scouts honor, I never received classified information in my private email account
The State Department released the first batch of emails from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on Friday, offering additional insight into how she reacted to the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi.
Spokeswoman Marie Harf said publication includes 296 emails given to a House committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.
The documents cover emails between 2011 and 2012 related to the Benghazi facility and its security, and to the broader issue of a U.S. diplomatic presence in Libya.
The State Department is still reviewing 55,000 further pages of emails from Clinton’s private email account. They’ll be published on a rolling basis.
The Associated Press also revealed on Friday that Clinton received information on her private email server that has now been classified about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi.
The email in question, forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, relates to reports of arrests in Libya of possible suspects in the attack.
Clinton Foundation Reveals $26 Million in Additional Payments of Previously Undisclosed Donations from Major Corporations, Universities & Foreign Sources
MORE CLINTON CORRUPTION …
If Hillary Clinton cannot run a foundation in an ethical manner, how the hell can anyone think or believe that she could run a country in kind? The Clinton Foundation is now revealing, ahead of the long Memorial Day holiday weekend, an undisclosed $24 million of additional payments from major corporations, universities and foreign sources. How Clintonian. There is no way that this woman should ever be elected President. Character has to matter, ethics have to matter, being able to remotely tell the truth has to matter … Hillary Clinton has none. The Clinton Foundation has been nothing more than a “slush fund” for the Clinton’s to become rich. We also recently learned that apart from the Foundation, the Clinton’s made $25 million in speaking fees since January 2014. Quite the Democrat populist candidate, ain’t she?
The Clinton Foundation reported Thursday that it has received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups.
The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign.
The money was paid as fees for speeches by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Foundation officials said the funds were tallied internally as “revenue” rather than donations, which is why they had not been included in the public listings of its contributors published as part of the 2008 agreement.
According to the new information, the Clintons have delivered 97 speeches to benefit the charity since 2002. Colleges and universities sponsored more than two dozen of these speeches, along with U.S. and overseas corporations and at least one foreign government, Thailand.
The payments were disclosed late Thursday on the organization’s Web site, with speech payments listed in ranges rather than specific amounts. In total, the payments ranged between $12 million and $26.4 million.
This becomes a major issue when payola for influence peddling is received by an individual who is running for the President of the United States, especially when she tried to hide who was making the donations. So much for transparency.
There’s nothing wrong with people cashing in. But when that person is the likely Democratic nominee, it raises questions.
That Hillary would be the nominee has been presumed for several years, so these payoffs take on a different meaning than the fat fees paid to speakers routinely. By classifying the payments as “revenue” instead of “donations,” the Clinton Foundation shielded the identity of the donors.
Powerline discusses another reason why Hillary Clinton should never be president.

YIKES … JOSH DUGGAR ADMITS TO MOLESTATION.
TMZ is reporting that Josh Duggar has acknowledged he sexually molested underage girls including some of his sisters. Josh Duggar is the elder son of the reality-TV-famous family from TLC’s “19 Kids And Counting.” The molestation acts occurred when Josh, now 27, was a teen and took place in 2002 and 2003; however, the incidents were not reported to police until 2006. In the wake of the allegations of child molestation, Josh Duggar has resigned his role as executive director of the Family Research Council.
Josh says, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager. I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.” He continues, “We spoke with authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.”
The molestations occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14. He fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping.
Josh’s wife Anna says he confessed his “past teenage mistakes” to her 2 years before he asked her to marry him.
Hmm, I wonder how this will effect the TV show?
In Touch magazine first broke the news of the Duggars’ underage sexual molestation scandal in this week’s magazine. (Note: Josh’s name is redacted from the police report but In Touch has confirmed the passages that refer to him.) See police reports HERE.
According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him … in one case reading a book.
There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh’s mom, Michelle, said it wasn’t really a treatment center … they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor.
In 2006, the family was scheduled to appear on “Oprah,” and before the show someone sent an email to Harpo warning that Josh had molested girls. Harpo forwarded the email to a hotline, which triggered a police investigation.
Cops wanted to question Josh, but Jim Bob lawyered him up and Josh declined the invitation.
Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.
From Josh Duggar:
Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.
From Anna Duggar:
I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. It was not at the point of engagement, or after we were married – it was two years before Josh asked me to marry him. When my family and I first visited the Duggar Home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was — even every difficult past mistakes. At that point and over the next two years, Josh shared how the counseling he received changed his life as he continued to do what he was taught. And when you, our sweet fans, first met me when Josh asked me to marry him… I was able to say, “Yes” knowing who Josh really is – someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended. Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right. I want to say thank you to those who took time over a decade ago to help Josh in a time of crisis. Your investment changed his life from going down the wrong path to doing what is right. If it weren’t for your help I would not be here as his wife — celebrating 6 1/2 years of marriage to a man who knows how to be a gentleman and treat a girl right. Thank you to all of you who tirelessly work with children in crisis, you are changing lives and I am forever grateful for all of you.

Daron Dylon Wint, Suspected in Quadruple Washington, D.C Murder Arrested and Charged with Murder (Update: Police Say Wint May Not Have Acted Alone)
Daron Dylon Wint was arrested by police Thursday night and charged with the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their house keeper.
34 year old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Wint is the prime suspect in the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Wint was charged with first degree felony murder while armed. According to accounts, Wint was tracked to New York City; however, was ultimately taken into custody at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington. Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, where Darron Dylon Wint was reported to have been a previous employee of the company.
Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned later today.
Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint’s arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.
“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.
“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”
From the NY Post domes the following, Robin Ficker, an attorney who represented Daron Dylon Wint years ago, said he did not believe Wint could “hurt a fly.” What do you say now counselor?
The massive manhunt for a suspect in the horrific murders of a Washington businessman’s family and their housekeeper ended late Thursday when police grabbed suspect Daron Dylon Wint and four associates in the nation’s capital.
“Just got him,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said shortly before 11:30 p.m.
The arrest capped a day that began with the revelation Wint had been identified in last week’s murders of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife Amy, 47; the couple’s 10-year-old son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, by DNA left on pizza crust during what may have been an extended home invasion. Police traced Wint, a 34-year-old ex-con from Maryland, to Brooklyn, N.Y., and then back to Washington in the afternoon.
UPDATE II: Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement:
“We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us.”
With a past record like this, it was only a matter of time before it escalated to murder.
Daron Dylon Wint, the man accused of slaying a wealthy family and a housekeeper inside their D.C. mansion, once bragged he was “good with a knife” and “not afraid of the police,” according to court records.
Wint, who was captured after a massive manhunt Thursday night, boasted about his ability to murder “easily” and has a pattern of alleged violence, records show.
He reportedly bragged while threatening to kill a woman and her infant daughter after he went to a nightclub with her in 2010, according to records.
“I’m going to come over there and kill you, your daughter and friends,” Wint told that woman, according to records. “The defendant advised he was good with a knife and could kill them easily and was not afraid of the police,” a detective said.
According to the Washington Post, Wint, who “became very violent,” threatened another woman and her family that “he will drop us one by one” over a parking dispute.
Again in 2010, Wint was arrested for carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the headquarters of American Iron Works, the company owned by Savvas Savopoulos.
- In 2005, Wint was ordered to stay away from his father, stepmother and younger sister after allegedly threatening to shoot them.
- His friends weren’t immune from his rages either; Wint punched and groped a former acquaintance and “drinking buddy” at the bar where she worked, alleged victim Jacinta Council told the Post. She eventually dropped the charged.
- In 2006, he punched a housemate during a fight over loud music.
- In 2006, he was arrested for stabbing a man.
- Wint was arrested for assault charges at least three times in the late 2000s.
D.C. Police believe more than one person may have been involved in the gruesome slayings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper, and said the victims were held captive beginning the evening before they were killed.
The four were slain the afternoon of May 14, according to new documents filed in D.C. Superior Court, soon after an employee of Savvas Savopoulos dropped off $40,000 in cash at the home.
10 Years Later after Natalee Holloway Went Missing in Aruba … An Interview with Dave Holloway (VIDEO)
10 years later after the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, her father Dave Holloway speaks out about the past and present …
In his own words, Dave Holloway says he never would have dreamed it would be 10 years without answers to what happened to his daughter Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Dave says it is a parents worst nightmare and just wishes he had answers. He said during the interview, “I just can’t imagine three guys who are 17-18 years old that they could not be interrogated by police officers and not break em,”. The crime should have been resolved within the first 24 hours; however, between corruption, incompetence and bad police work, it was not. However, when a family goes up against “One Corrupt Island” and a system of cronyism of a connected lawyer and judge in waiting in Paulus Van der Sloot looking to protect his son and an island whose sole existence is based upon tourism, it was a near insurmountable nut to crack.
That is why when this case first broke, having previous knowledge of what Aruba was all about and what was important to them, Scared Monkeys wrote, ‘This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway.’
In a final word from Dave Holloway and looking at the case of Natalee Holloway, while there have been many promising leads that have come and gone throughout the past ten years, one thing that has never changed is a father’s love for his daughter.
“I just wish we had an answer.” Frustrations with the Frustrations have lingered for ten long years. Politics, money, corruption…. the story had all the makings of a soap opera played out on an international stage. “I just can’t imagine three guys who are 17-18 years old that they could not be interrogated by police officers and not break em,”.
He was back in Aruba recently after an alleged witness re-surfaced saying he saw suspect Joran van der Sloot with Natalee at a Marriot hotel which was under construction. But police in Aruba have quickly discounted his claims saying his story doesn’t match up with the construction timeline at the hotel. The witness said Natalee was dead and van der Sloot hid her body. He claims he didn’t come forward at the time because he was involved in illegal activity.
