Senator urges UPS to refund customers whose Christmas packages were late

Senator  Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. STFU!

Let the respective shipping companies solve this matter.

How long before Senator Asshat convenes a Senate committee

and drags the UPS and FedEx up to testify before this committee?

How long before Holder and his injustice department or the

IRS  or both start harassing  UPS and FedEx?


A U.S. senator is calling on UPS to refund customers whose Christmas packages got caught up in widespread delays.

“In a very real sense, Christmas is on the line,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said in a written statement Thursday. “I call on UPS to do the right thing and provide refunds to people whose Christmases were a little less cheery as a result of their late deliveries.”

The senator said he recognizes the “tremendous work” that UPS, as well as the U.S. Postal Service and FedEx, put in this time of year. However, he said he was “disappointed” to learn so many people in his state and across the country were “left empty-handed” on Christmas.

Both UPS and FedEx were playing catch up Thursday after poor weather and overloaded systems delayed packages that were intended to be delivered in time for Christmas.

Neither company said how many packages were delayed but noted it was a small share of overall holiday shipments. But the problems appear to have affected many parts of the country.

“We apologize that our customers did not receive their packages on Christmas,” said Natalie Godwin, a spokeswoman for United Parcel Service Inc.

UPS did not make pickups or deliveries Wednesday. Extra workers were brought in Wednesday night to the company’s hub in Louisville, Ky., to sort packages for Thursday and Friday delivery, according to Godwin.

Godwin said “UPS will honor its peak shipments commitments” to customers who used its air delivery service. Those shipping by ground have no guarantee past Dec. 11. Godwin said she didn’t know if customers would receive refunds.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, FedEx handled 275 million shipments, according to Scott Fiedler, a spokesman for FedEx Corp. Those that were not delivered in time, Fiedler said, “would be very few.”

“Our 300,000 team members delivered outstanding service during this holiday season, and we experienced no major service disruptions in the week before Christmas despite heavy volume,”  FedEx spokeswoman Parul Bajaj said in a statement Thursday. “Every single package is important to us, and we will continue to work directly with customers to address any isolated incidents.” has been notifying some customers affected by the UPS delays that it will refund any shipping charges and is giving them a $20 credit toward a future purchase.

Amazon spokeswoman Mary Osako said the company processed orders and got them to its shippers “on time for holiday delivery” and is now “reviewing the performance of the delivery carriers.”





NYPD: Dead Baby Found In Teen’s Bag Inside Manhattan Victoria’s Secret

This is from CBS 2 New York.

One of the girls is a daughter of Obama and she bore

the dead baby.

Now I heard the baby the was asphyxiated.

If that is true she needs  asphyxiated also.

Police searched Rodriguez’s apartment Thursday night. They also were examining surveillance video from inside the store.

Neighbors and friends said they had no idea Rodriguez, who has a 2-year-old son, was pregnant. In recent photos posted online, Rodriguez’s pregnancy was not obvious. Late Wednesday night, she posted on her Facebook page complaining of cramps.

“I couldn’t really tell because she’s a little heavyset, so I wouldn’t know if she was pregnant, pregnant or that’s just her,” neighbor Ramon Acosta told Sanchez.

“I was in shock,” Acosta said of Thursday’s events. “I caught goosebumps and all that. It’s like, come on, that’s a young, innocent girl to my eyes.

Residents who live near the Victoria’s Secret told Sanchez they were also stunned by the news.

“It’s sad and it hurts because it’s still a life that was born, and now it’s gone,” said Esther Gross, of the Upper West Side.

Passersby on the busy corner asked others what the commotion was about, and some were shaken by the answer they received.

“Very devastating,” one woman told WCBS 880′s Alex Silverman. “I’m a mother of a 5-year-old. I wanted to cry. It’s very sad.”

“There’s no reason, there’s no logical explanation to carry around a fetus,” another woman said.

2 Women Report Gang Rape In Wilmington Park

Leave a comment

This is from My Fox Philly.

It seems 10-12 Sons Of Obama are running wild in Kosciuszko Park in Wilmington,Delaware.

Obama’s sons can do so because the people of Delaware’s Second Amendment rights are restricted. –


WILMINGTON, Del. -Police say they’re investigating the alleged gang rape of two women during daylight at a Wilmington city park.

The attack was reported at approximately 6:54 p.m. Thursday in Kosciuszko Park, located on the 600 block of South Franklin Street, in the area of Broom Street in Wilmington’s Hedgeville Community. The park is about three-blocks long.

Police said the victims are two women, ages 32 and 24. Police said the suspects were reported to be “approximately 10 to 12 black male juveniles,” adding that no further descriptions are available.

Officers responded to a 9-1-1 call from one of the victims reporting a rape, and the two women were taken by ambulance to Christiana Hospital.

“Initial investigation suggested the victims were in Kosciuszko Park when they were approached by a group of juveniles. The juveniles assaulted the victims and fled in an unknown direction,” police said in a news release.

Investigators said the women were sitting in the park at the time.

It’s unclear if there were witnesses, and the conditions of the women were not released. But police said they’re seeking the public’s help to identify the attackers.

Police are stepping up patrols so women should not feel afraid to be in the park alone, they said.

FOX’S Leigh Scheps reported live from Wilmington on Friday night that she talked to several young women who live in the neighborhood and said they are scared to be out alone.

The park may look picture-perfect, but many people like Tabita Ares say its deceiving.

“It is a nightmare, especially at night, and even during the day,” Ares said.”

Still, it’s hard to stay away, Ares said, mentioning that she walks around daytime and nighttime “because so much has happens in this beautiful park.”

Frank Roberts, who has lived across the street from Kosciuszko Park for more than 35 years, told us, “”I can’t believe it. … Didn’t hear a thing. None or us did. We were all home.”

Despite the stepped up patrols in the park, Roberts isn’t taking any chances with his 20-year-old granddaughter.

“I’m gonna to tell her to stay out of the park after dark — or during the day,” he said.

Police are still working to track down the violent teens. Anyone with information should call Detective Joseph Cooper at 302-576-3634, the Wilmington Police Confidential Tip Line at 302-576-3990, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, or tips can be submitted online at


Lancaster teen Temar Boggs hailed as a hero in 5-year-old’s abduction

Leave a comment

This is from Lancaster Online.

This story gives me hope for the youth of America.

These you men are to be commended.

Temar Boggs had a feeling he’d find the 5-year-old girl who was abducted Thursday in Lancaster Township.

He was right.

Boggs, a McCaskey freshman who lives in Gable Park Woods, had been hanging out with a friend at nearby Lancaster Arms apartments and helping move a couch when a man came by asking if they’d seen a missing girl.


They hadn’t, Boggs said, so they went to watch TV.

A short time later, his friend went outside and saw lots of police officers and people from the neighborhood looking for the girl.

Police said that the girl had been taken that afternoon from the 100 block of Jennings Drive.

Boggs and about six friends joined the search.

Update: Man charged with kidnapping, sexual offenses in abduction of girl, 5

“We got all of our friends to go look for her. We made our own little search party,” Boggs, 15, said Saturday, though he didn’t know the girl or her family.

They walked through some nearby woods and along a creek where they were told the girl might have gone.

When Boggs and his friends returned to Lancaster Arms on Jennings Drive, they saw more police officers and TV news crews.

“The whole block was filled,” he said.

That’s when, Boggs said, “I had the gut feeling that I was going to find the little girl.”

A friend asked Boggs to hold his bike. Boggs figured the bike would help him search for the girl.

So he and another friend, Chris Garcia, rode on area streets — Michelle Drive, St. Phillips Drive, Gable Park Road — looking for her.

That’s when a maroon car caught his eye. (He had gotten a bit ahead of Garcia.)

The car was on Gable Park and turned around when it got near the top of a hill toward Millersville Pike, where Boggs said several police officers were gathered with the kind of cart used to carry an injured football player off the field.

The driver, an older white man, then began quickly turning onto and out of side streets connecting to Gable Park, Boggs said.

The neighborhood is something of a maze; many of its streets are cul-de-sacs.

Boggs got close enough to the car to see a little girl inside. Garcia was nearby.

The driver looked at Boggs and Garcia, then stopped the car at Gable Park and Betz Farm Road and pushed the girl out of the car. The driver then drove off, Boggs said.

Boggs said he didn’t see where the car went.

“She runs to my arms and said, ‘I need to see my mommy,’ ” Boggs said.

Boggs scooped the girl onto his shoulders and began riding the bike toward home, but then decided that wasn’t safe, so he carried her and walked back while Garcia pedaled along, guiding the bike Boggs had been using.


Back at Lancaster Arms, when Boggs and Garcia arrived with the girl, someone summoned a firefighter or law enforcement officer.

Boggs said the girl was reluctant to leave him and go to the official.

“She didn’t want to leave me because she thought they were going to do something to her. I said, ‘No, it’s OK,’ ” he said.

Police said later that the abductor took the little girl for ice cream, and that there were indications of an assault.

Boggs met the girl’s family Thursday evening, after he told police his story.

The girl’s family members “were just saying that I was a hero, that I was a guardian angel and that it was amazing that I was there and was able to find the girl,” he said.

Boggs doesn’t see himself as a hero.

“I’m just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do,” he said.

He described himself as a typical kid.

He plays football, basketball and track (he runs the 100- and 200-meter and the 400-meter relay, and does the high and long jump).

He likes sneakers, and if his hopes of being a professional athlete don’t pan out, he’d like to be a clothing or sneaker designer. Or maybe work in the culinary arts.

He’s modest, but knows he did something special Thursday.

“It was like fate, it was like meant for me and Chris to be there. If we wouldn’t have left (to look for the girl) who knows what would have happened to the little girl,” he said.

Boggs did wake up in the middle of the night afterward, though, thinking he might have saved the girl’s life.

“It was a blessing for me to make that happen,” he said.

His mother, Tamika Boggs, said she’s proud of her son.

“You just hope you raise your child the right way. … He’s learning what I tell him, to help others,” she said.

GOP Rep. Gowdy: Nancy Pelosi ‘mind-numbingly stupid,’ recommends doctor visit

1 Comment

This is from The Examiner.

Representative Trey Gowdy  (R.SC) had it all most right.

Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) is a DemocRat hack.

Pelosi is beyond and medical or psychiatric help.

You cannot fix her special kind of stupid.



On Thursday, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)lashed out at Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), calling her recent comments regarding Fast and Furious “mind-numbingly stupid,” and suggested she “schedule an appointment” with a doctor.

On Thursday, Pelosi claimed that the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder was part of a grand conspiracy to undermine his fight against voter suppression.

“This is no accident. It is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of the Republicans,” Pelosi said.

“It’s really beneath the office of a member of Congress to say something that outrageous, and the fact that she was once the speaker is mind-numbing,” Rep. Gowdy told Fox News’ Greta van Susteren.

“I have heard a lot in my 16 years as a prosecutor. I couldn’t believe the words coming out of her mouth,” he added.

“I don’t know what was wrong with her when she said that. But I would schedule an appointment with my doctor if she thinks that we are doing this to suppress votes this fall. That is mind-numbingly stupid,” Gowdy said.

Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit reminded readers that “Pelosi also said Democrats brought down the deficit after they increased it by a trillion dollars.”

“She’s either mind-numbingly stupid or a chronic liar, or both,” Hoft wrote.

Gowdy also took the administration to task for invoking executive privilege at the last minute.

”If executive privilege were so sacred, they would have invoked it 10 months ago,” he said. “To wait 10 minutes before we start a markup? They still haven’t told us which documents are privileged.”

On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted along party lines to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over documents relating to Fast and Furious.

The whole House is set to vote on the contempt charge sometime next week.


Woman Brutally Stabbed Inside Bed Bath & Beyond Store In N.J.

This is from CBS 2 New York.

The attacker is a hopey changer.

The victim is a white female.

This should be a hate crime but it will not be.


MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Police are investigating after a woman was attacked and stabbed multiple times inside a New Jersey store Thursday afternoon.

The victim, identified by her family as 29-year-old Kerri Dalton of Keansburg, also had a baby with her inside the Middletown Bed Bath & Beyond store, when the attack occurred.

The alleged assailant, 19-year-old Tyrik Haynes, is accused of repeatedly plunging a knife into Dalton around 4 p.m., puncturing both her lungs in an apparent random attack.

A published report indicated that Haynes is being held on $1 million bail on an attempted murder charge.

Dalton was stabbed more than a dozen times and Medevaced to Jersey Shore Medical Center, where she remained in stable condition late Thursday night.

The baby was unhurt and was with family, Young reported.

The manager of the Staples store next door to the scene said she saw the assailant moments before the attack lurking about on the sidewalk.

“The guy was standing in front of our store, but…he was kinda weird. We didn’t pay no mind to it because we didn’t know who he was. He was a guy with a hood and then he walked over there and then he came like nothing happened and he just walked that way and then the lady came screaming, saying ‘Can you help me, can you help me. A lady got stabbed,’” Ana Palet said.

Detectives searched a nearby townhouse Thursday night. The location is where Haynes lives with his mother and younger sister. Neighbors were left scratching their heads.

“You just never know. Could be somebody right next door and you just never know,” neighbor Terry Blake said. “Seemed fine, always friendly.”

CBS 2′s Young reported that Haynes is known locally as a suspected animal abuser. Workers at the nearby Petco told Young the suspect used to come in to stare at the cats and that he is accused of adopting cats and setting them on fire.

Happy New Year! Chicago Murder Tally Hits 500 for 2012


This is from PJ Media.

The city of Chicago is the best argument against gun control.

The citizens of Chicago are hampered by harsh gun laws.

Yet the thugs and gang bangers are able to get guns.


Yes, but at least they have very strict gun control laws in Chicago that keep weapons out of the hands of criminals. Oh, wait…

Chicago Tribune:

Chicago reached “a tragic number” today, according to Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy: Its homicide total for the year hit 500, the highest annual total since 2008.

The city’s latest homicide occurred around 9 p.m. Thursday when Nathaniel T. Jackson, 40, an alleged gang member with a lengthy arrest record, was gunned down outside a store in the Austin neighborhood.

As of Thursday night, homicides were up 17 percent over last year in Chicago and shootings had increased by 11 percent, according to police statistics. Earlier this fall, Chicago already exceeded the number of homicides that occurred last year, but this is the first time the city has had 500 or more murders since the 512 in 2008.

Helluva job, Rhambo. Why not blame the high murder rate on global warming?

Largely contributing to the spike was the unusual number of homicides that occurred during the early part of the year, when the city experienced unseasonable warmth. In the first three months of the year, homicides ran about 60 percent ahead of the 2011 rate.

Apparently, there was some dissension at police headquarters over whether this latest victim was the 499th or 500th murdered Chicagoan. They finally decided that the poor unfortunate was #500.

Incredibly, the police took credit for a decrease in violent crime at the same press conference they announced the 500th murder victim:

McCarthy issued a statement declaring: “The city has seen its 500th homicide for 2012, a tragic number that is reflective of the gang violence and proliferation of illegal guns that have plagued some of our neighborhoods.”

While saying every homicide is unacceptable, he went on to laud the department’s overall crime reduction.

He also said that gang violence reduction strategies the department adopted this year have slowed the increase in violence.

The murder rate is up 17% but, hey! At least the gangs are killing each other more slowly.

With so many illegal guns on the streets of Chicago and law abiding citizens largely prevented from legally purchasing a firearm for protection from the barbarians, one wonders why the murder rate wasn’t higher.

Mayor Emanuel proposed budget cuts last year of $190 million. He planned to close 3 police stations and hire 500 officers for the year – a number that barely kept up with retirements. The city did direct many officers who had been largely doing paperwork to get out and patrol high crime neighborhoods. This slowed the crime rate toward the end of the year, but hardly made much of a difference in the number of murders overall.

If strict gun control laws aren’t working in Chicago — and they aren’t — why would anyone think they could work nationwide?


Michigan Republicans draw union ire with sudden votes on right-to-work legislation

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News Politics.

I applaud the Michigan Legislature for standing up for workers.

The union goons have been sucking the life blood from Michigan.

I hope this right to work legislation becomes law.

How many of the unions goons were from Michigan?

Unions have a tendency to bus in there rent a mob goons.


Michigan Republicans touched off a firestorm Thursday with an abrupt push to pass right-to-work legislation, in what would be a blow to organized labor in the home of the U.S. auto industry.

Right-to-work legislation prohibits unions from forcing workers to pay union dues. Unions and their Democratic allies adamantly oppose these laws — but with little warning, Michigan Republicans on Thursday laid the groundwork to, in a matter of days, make their state the 24th with right-to-work legislation.

“This is all about taking care of the hard-working workers in Michigan, being pro-worker and giving them freedom to make choices,” Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said. “The goal isn’t to divide Michigan, it is to bring Michigan together.”

The votes Thursday, though, drew hundreds of union-tied protesters to the capital, some of whom were pepper-sprayed by police when they tried to storm the Senate chamber.

Just hours after the bills were introduced, both Republican-controlled chambers approved measures prohibiting private unions from requiring dues. The Senate quickly followed by voting to impose the same requirement on most public unions.

Because of rules requiring a five-day delay between votes in the two chambers on the same legislation, final enactment could not take place until Tuesday at the earliest. Snyder, who previously had said repeatedly that right-to-work was “not on my agenda,” told reporters Thursday he would sign the measures.

Democrats denounced the bills as an attack on worker rights, but the GOP sponsor insisted they would boost the economy and jobs. A House vote on public-sector unions was expected to come later.

A victory in Michigan would give the right-to-work movement its strongest foothold yet in the Rust Belt region, where organized labor already has suffered several body blows. Republicans in Indiana and Wisconsin recently pushed through legislation curbing union rights, sparking massive protests.

Even before the Michigan bills turned up, protesters streamed inside the Capitol preparing for what appeared inevitable after Snyder, House Speaker Jase Bolger and Senate Minority Leader Randy Richardville announced at a news conference they were putting the issue on a fast track.

Lt. Gov. Brian Calley repeatedly gaveled for order during the Senate debate as Democrats attacked the legislation to applause from protesters in the galley.

Eight people were arrested for resisting and obstructing when they tried to push past two troopers guarding the Senate door, state police Inspector Gene Adamczyk said.

Protesters waved placards and chanted slogans such as “Union buster” and “Right-to-work has got to go.” Adamczyk said the troopers used pepper spray after the people refused to obey orders to stop.

The Capitol, which was temporarily closed because of safety concerns, reopened Thursday afternoon, sending hundreds of protesters streaming back inside.

The decision to push forward in the waning days of the Legislature’s lame-duck session infuriated outnumbered Democrats, who resorted to parliamentary maneuvers to slow action but were powerless to block the bills.

House Democrats did walk out briefly Thursday in protest of the Capitol being closed.

Through a spokesman, President Obama also reiterated his opposition to right-to-work laws.

White House spokesman Matt Lehrich said Obama believes the economy “is stronger when workers get good wages and good benefits, and he opposes attempts to roll back their rights.”

Lehrich said Michigan workers’ role in helping reviving the U.S. auto industry shows “how unions have helped build a strong middle class and a strong American economy.”

Adamczyk estimated that about 2,500 visitors were inside the Capitol, where their shouts reverberated off stone halls and frequently could be heard inside the ornate chambers.

After repeatedly insisting during his first two years in office that right-to-work was not on his agenda, Snyder reversed course Thursday, a month after voters defeated a ballot initiative that would have barred such measures under the state constitution.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Snyder said he had kept the issue at arm’s length while pursuing other programs to bolster the state economy. But he said circumstances had pushed the matter to the forefront.

“It is a divisive issue,” he acknowledged. “But it was already being divisive over the past few weeks, so let’s get this resolved. Let’s reach a conclusion that’s in the best interests of all.”

Also influencing his decision, he said, were reports that some 90 companies had decided to locate in Indiana since that state adopted right-to-work legislation. “That’s thousands of jobs, and we want to have that kind of success in Michigan,” he said.

Snyder and the GOP leaders insisted the legislation was not meant to weaken unions or collective bargaining, saying it would make unions more responsive to their members.

Senate Democratic leader Gretchen Whitmer said she was “livid.”

Republicans have commanding majorities in both chambers — 64-46 in the House and 26-12 in the Senate. Under their rules, only a simple majority of members elected and serving must be present to have a quorum and conduct business. For that reason, Democrats acknowledged that boycotting sessions and going into hiding, as some lawmakers in neighboring Indiana and Wisconsin have done in recent years to stall legislation unpopular with unions, would be futile in Michigan.

Romney blasts Obama’s ‘secretary of business’ plan as just another layer of government

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News Politics.

Why do we need a Secretary of Business?

I thought that was the job of Secretary of Commerce and the Commerce Department.

Like Mitt Romney says we need a president that understand business.

Obama does not understand business or know how to create jobs or make payroll.


The Romney campaign is ripping President Obama for calling for the creation of a secretary of business to handle the nation’s economic ills — running a TV ad saying that solution would only add more bureaucracy to a cluttered system.

“His solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat,” the narrator says in the 30-second spot. “Why not have a president who actually understands business?”

The president floated the idea last week, saying he wanted to consolidate “a whole bunch” of government agencies.

“We should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like giving loans to (the Small Business Administration) or helping companies with exports,” Obama told MSNBC.

Romney criticized the idea Thursday during a rally in southwest Virginia.

“I know the president is trying to figure out some way to suggest he has new ideas,” said Romney, repeating as he often has on the trail that roughly 23 million Americans are out of work or underemployed. “He came up with the idea of creating a Department of Business. I don’t think adding a new chair in his cabinet will add more jobs on Main Street.”

The latest TV ad includes a similar message, asking “Why not have a president who actually understands business?”

The Obama campaign responded by saying the president called on Congress in January to give him authority the streamline the Executive Branch so businesses could more easily access government resources.

“The idea that Mitt Romney would help businesses grow as president doesn’t match his record or his policies,” campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith said Thursday. “When the American auto industry and a million jobs were on the line, Romney turned his back, which is why he’s trying to rewrite history. … Romney can lurch from false attack to false attack in the final days of this campaign, but the American people understand President Obama is the only candidate in this race with a concrete plan to move our country forward.”

The campaigns were trading jabs Thursday after dialing back the partisan rhetoric for a few days due to monster storm Sandy. Obama met Wednesday with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and toured the devastation there, after Romney attended a relief rally the day before. Both candidates continued to reference the storm and its victims in their stump speeches.

While the Obama campaign is trying to carry a pro-business mantle, Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul disputed their claims. She said Thursday the solution is not to re-elect a president whose policies are “hostile to job creators” — citing reports on voter concerns about the president’s health care law, increased regulations and proposed tax hikes for small businesses.

Republican running mate Paul Ryan, in Greeley, Colo., also mocked Obama on Thursday for the proposal. He said the country already has a secretary of business. “It’s called the secretary of commerce,” he said.
