When Lois Matykowski lost her wedding ring six years ago, she was devastated. After checking every spot in the house, the yard, the car, and even her dog’s poop for a few weeks, she gave up.“My husband and I had been married for 20 years at that time,” Matykowski told ABC News.
“We had just upgraded the ring, and it wasn’t insured. And it wasn’t just the value, but also the emotional ties. How do you replace that?”The ring’s whereabouts became clear earlier this month when Tucker, the family’s dog, coughed up the truth – and the ring.The 10-year-old Rottweiler mix adopted from the Wisconsin Humane Society, is known as the “food burglar” in the house.PHOTO:

ABC News Uncovers Obama Admin Has Flooded America With Islamic Terrorists Disguised As Iraqi Refugees | Terrorism
(Before It\’s News)
On August 8, 2013 NTEB News warned you of the plan by the Obama Administration to sneak into the country scores of highly-trained Muslim terrorists disguised as refugees from war-torn Iraq and Syria. Today, ABC News confirms that this has happened exactly as we warned you it would.
ABC News: Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan.

On Monday, an Alitalia pilot reported seeing a mysterious black drone flying above New York near JFK International Airport, which is one of the busiest in the world. Minutes later, another unidentified pilot reported a similar sighting of a black unmanned aircraft. The incident was first reported by ABC News.
Fully 60 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of Obama in the new poll, up slightly from October but a clear shift in opinion from an election year in which his ratings hovered in the mid-to-low 50s.
And by 39 percent to 26 percent, the president now has more “strongly” positive ratings than strongly negative reviews, breaking a two-year stretch in which intense opposition was on par with or higher than intense support.
Since last month’s horrifying and heartbreaking school massacre in Newtown, Conn., politicians and the press have, as everyone knows, been totally obsessed with firearms.
Other possible factors – from violent video games to the “failure of our mental-health system” to the unintended consequences of making schools “gun-free zones” – have taken a back seat to guns. Within hours of the gruesome mega-crime, the media had provided extensive, round-the-clock coverage of precisely which firearms, manufacturers and calibers the perpetrator had used, how he had obtained them from his mother, where they were originally purchased, and so on.
In its published highlights, ABC News has drawn attention to the Obamas‘ comments about keeping the romance alive in their marriage, yet those remarks were followed by this exchange:

“Documentary investigating life story now available to 27 million homes”
Joel Gilbert, director and writer of “Dreams from My Real Father,” says the documentary now is available on the Netflix streaming service, giving another 27 million households across America access.
The film presents evidence Communist Party activist and pornographer Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s biological as well as ideological father.
Gilbert said he gets hundreds of emails per day from viewers who are shocked to learn that so much about the president’s background and political foundation is hidden by establishment media.

Do not be deceived by all that talk of delegates and floor speeches: This is a convention of the media, by the media and for the media.
There are some 15,000 representatives of the media here for the convention, and only about 5,000 delegates.

Last night, with the help of my colleagues Tony Lee and Warner Todd Huston, we tried our best to cover the corrupt media’s worst moments during their coverage of last night’s GOPconvention. With an eye on cable, the broadcast networks, Twitter, and the Web, in real-time we documented what we witnessed and you can read it all below.
What it boiled down to, though, was exactly what you would expect from a hopelessly corrupt institution determined to drag a failed president over the finish line: Unconscionable race-baiting, cynicism, and the use of Hurricane Isaac to selectively ignore some of the conventions best moments for the GOP. For instance, CNN refused to broadcast speeches given by Republican governors in crucial swing states.

Another act of mass violence, another round of finger-pointing directed at tea party members. When ABC News issued a report Friday suggesting that the horrific shooting at a Colorado movie theater was perpetrated by a suspect with ties to the movement, the situation had a familiar feel to it,
tea party leaders say. Just as in January 2011, when the Tucson shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords sparked speculation that the perpetrator was either affiliated with the tea party or influenced by its anti-government rhetoric, members were again wrongly fingered as possible culprits and forced to defend themselves against the assumption that there might be a link. This time, tea party leaders responded angrily — and with a sense of deep frustration over the latest erroneous connection drawn between their political beliefs and gun violence.
As they see it, it’s the latest attempt to demonize the grassroots activists, carried out by a hostile media that’s all-too-willing to believe the worst about them.
(NaturalNews) James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado shooter who reportedly opened fire at a Batman movie premiere, was a medical student at the University of Colorado, pursuing a PhD in neuroscience, reports ABC News. (http://abcnews.go.com/US/mass-shooting-colorado-movie-theater-14-peop…)
As part of the attack, Holmes painted his hair red and referred to himself as “The Joker,” one of the arch enemies in the DC Comics-inspired Batman movie series. (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/07/20/police-14-dead-in-colorado-the…)

The Stossel Solution… (“Stossel’s show on Saturday, June 30 was a classic. It was called “Government, Incorporated” and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. “)
In order to get the correct answer to anything, one must ask the right question. That is what former ABC News and current Fox News TV host John Stossel does on his weekly program. If ever there was “must see-TV,” this is it.
Stossel’s show on Saturday, June 30 was a classic. It was called “Government, Incorporated” and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. After watching it, I wondered why this isn’t happening. Why does inefficient, costly and unresponsive government continue to grow while the people and companies that could do the work much better are regulated and taxed to death?
In part it’s because politicians speak only in poll-tested sound bites and rarely focus on what works. It isn’t as if we don’t have a history that can teach us. We know what works, but politicians too often prefer the issue to the solution. That’s where Stossel comes in.
At the top of the program Stossel established the underlying foundation of his libertarian philosophy when it comes to government vs. private industry: “…even though the private sector is more efficient, politicians and bureaucrats usually won’t let go. They want their tentacles on everything. And the public is usually happy to go along, because we’re imprinted to believe the specialists in Washington and state capitals know better. They’re from the government. They’re here to help. And they’re so smart.”
One of his guests was Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. Forget for a moment that Daniels is a Republican. Focus on his accomplishments. “You were $78 million in debt,” Stossel said during the program. “Now you have a $1.5 billion surplus.” In a controversial decision, Indiana leaders leased a 157-mile toll road to foreign investors. “In exchange,” writes Ryan Holeywell of Governing.com, “for a $3.8 billion, lump-sum payment, the investors would get to keep toll road revenue for 75 years … a windfall for Indiana, with little downside to taxpayers.” Next year, Daniels announced recently, his state’s surplus will be at least $2 billion. Taxpayers can expect a credit on their 2013 taxes.
Daniels said he invokes what he calls “the Yellow Pages test. If it’s in there, then conceivably government shouldn’t be doing it itself.”
Zimmerman led Sanford police through every step of the infamous showdown, one day after he blew away Martin during a Feb. 26 shooting that’s landed the neighborhood watch volunteer in jail, charged with murder, according to ABC News.
Despite widespread speculation that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is one of the top names under consideration for Mitt Romney’s vice presidential nomination, the freshman senator has not been asked to complete any questionnaires or fill out any financial disclosure documents, according to a report by ABC News.
And so far, indications had been that Rubio was very much in the running. The senator has appeared multiple times on the campaign trail with Romney since the former governor clinched the GOP nomination, earning a warm reception from the assembled crowds.
If an extraterrestrial had tuned into Good Morning America today and watched ABC News’s report on national security leaks, he would have come away thinking the Obama administration was valiantly, aggressively pursuing the leakers.
ET wouldn’t have learned that there is good reason to suspect that the source of the leaks . . . is the Obama administration itself.
The Obama’s feel your pain. Really, they do. So much so that Michelle fat cakes Obama is off to Atlanitc City to see a Beyonce concert.

“Special Operations members from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force will work alongside SOF troops from other countries to ‘assault’ mock enemy positions and rescuing ‘hostages’ next to the convention center, both on land and in the bay,” ABC News in Tampa reported.
No sooner did the literary agency brochure in which Barack Obama was said to be Kenyan-born surface than the media went to work to deep-six it.
“This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me – an agency assistant at the time,” Miriam Goderich, now a named partner in the literary agency, Dystel & Goderich, wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News, which was then picked up ABC News. “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”
This confession rings false to the point of preposterous for any number of reasons. Let us start with the obvious. At the time, 1991, the Acton & Dystel agency listed 90 clients, Obama among its least significant. How likely is it that Goderich would have remembered enough about a 1991 “error” to know it was hers, especially since it went uncorrected through several revisions until changed in 2007?

RUSH: Developments in the Trayvon Martin case, and you’d be hard-pressed to find these developments out there. There have been two dramatic developments in the Trayvon Martin shooting case. According to the ABC News, George Zimmerman’s family doctor saws him the morning after the shooting of Trayvon Martin. Here’s what George Zimmerman’s doctor found: A broken nose, two black eyes, bruises on his face and lip, two cuts on the back of his head, and a back injury.
Could a former FBI Special Agent who investigated the OKC Bombing and the 9/11 attacks be the victim of a set-up?
OKC & 9/11 Investigator Victim Of Set Up?
“A former FBI Supervisory special agent who worked on some of the bureau’s most high profile terrorism and bombing cases including the Unabomber case, the USS Cole bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing and the1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 9/11 attacks, has been arrested and charged with distributing child pornography,” reports ABC News.
Donald J. Sachtleben left the FBI in 2008 after a 25-year career spanning the globe. After searching the computer of another individual, Jason Nicoson, which contained images of child pornography, FBI investigators discovered an IP address and connected it to Sachtleben’s home in Carmel, Indiana.
The print and online guardians in the establishment press may have to open a new case of ellipses and order extra pairs of paraphrases to deal with this one. Video and audio editing will be easier, if not ethical (NBC has taught us that during the past several weeks).
Declaring what everyone with a functioning brain has known all along — namely that President Barack Obama supports same-sex marriage but hasn’t had the political integrity to admit as much until now — the commander-in-chief of the nation’s armed forces told ABC News that “when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there FIGHTING ON MY BEHALF and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.” Yes, he said that our military is out there fighting on his behalf

Megyn Kelly Guest Alan Dershowitz Slams Zimmerman Prosecutor: Her Affidavit ‘Is A Crime’
Mediaite ^ | April 25, 2012 | Alex Alvarez
Posted on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 3:53:49 PM by 2ndDivisionVet
Lawyer, professor and political commentator Alan Dershowitz stopped by America Live Wednesday afternoon, where he shared his thoughts on the George Zimmerman case with host Megyn Kelly. In a nutshell: He thinks the case has gone to hell in a widely-publicized handbasket. Specifically, he believes that, if anyone should be tried in this case, it should be Special Prosecutor Angela Corey.
“This affidavit,” he said, “submitted by the prosecutor in the Florida case is a crime. It’s a crime. If she in fact knew about ABC News’ pictures of the bloody head of Zimmerman and failed to include that in the affidavit, this affidavit is not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”
He also took the prosecution to task for having used the passive voice — “a struggle ensued” — to describe the altercation that allegedly took place between Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin leading up to Trayvon’s death without adding pertinent evidence and details, such as whether Martin had been on top of Zimmerman, thus able to bash his head against the pavement as Zimmerman has claimed.
(ABC NEWS) A new photograph obtained exclusively by ABC News showing the bloodied back of George Zimmerman’s head, which was apparently taken three minutes after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, gives possible credence to his claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life.

The argument between the officials and the bouncers from the club escalated and ultimately spilled onto the street, according to several eye witness accounts.Video report at link worth watching. Includes visit to club and mention that up to 20 U.S. military from all four branches involved, bringing number of U.S. personnel involved up to 31.
