U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Fox News’ The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton as a panelist on Sunday to discuss the Democrats’ unsubstantiated impeachment inquiry.

On the Democrats’ Repeated Efforts to Impeach the President

“They tried it in 2017. They couldn’t get the floor vote. They tried it in 2018. They couldn’t get the floor vote. Mueller was to be [the silver bullet]. They couldn’t get that to work. They tried it earlier this year and it didn’t work and so here we are…. They’re wanting to prove that something nefarious was done…. This is their Mueller do-over.”

When Newspapers Mattered: The News Brothers and their Shades of Glory

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – As my wife and I were preparing for a recent vacation, we started collecting the books we planned to read while on our trip.  I usually grab the latest offering by Harlan Coben, Patricia Cornwell, or John Grisham.

She is currently catching up on the “Left Behind” series, but as she was putting our choices in the bag, she reached for my autographed copy of “When Newspapers Mattered: The News Brothers & their Shades of Glory” written by former Leaf-Chronicle “newspapermen” Tim Ghianni and Rob Dollar.

Remarks by the President on Osama Bin Laden

 

East Room

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT: Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on the American people in our history. The images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory — hijacked planes cutting through a cloudless September sky; the Twin Towers collapsing to the ground; black smoke billowing up from the Pentagon; the wreckage of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the actions of heroic citizens saved even more heartbreak and destruction.

And yet we know that the worst images are those that were unseen to the world. The empty seat at the dinner table.  Children who were forced to grow up without their mother or their father. Parents who would never know the feeling of their child’s embrace. Nearly 3,000 citizens taken from us, leaving a gaping hole in our hearts. «Read the rest of this article»

Local radio station gains popularity in ‘the Pech’

 

Written by U.S. Army Capt. Jonathan J. Springer, 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchCamp Blessing, Afghanistan – In the Pech River Valley, a good radio station is hard to come by.

But in Nangalam, a city dubbed as the “Jewel of the Pech” in the war–torn country’s Kunar Province, there is one radio station in the area – 101.1 FM, the “Voice of the Pech.”

According to CIA statistics, 62 percent of all residents in Afghanistan are illiterate. Because of this fact alone, radio plays an important role in the lives of Afghans throughout the country, and specifically in the “Pech.”

“Locals depend on radio for many things, like news and information,” said Abdulsalam Omary, broadcasting manager for the Voice of the Pech. “We try to do our best to have different programming for the people of Nangalam. Our most popular programming is music, Islamic poetry and also our call-in shows.”
