Ex-Santorum campaign staffer kills himself after stabbing fellow Yale conservative

Published

on

A former campaign staff member for Rick Santorum took his own life on Tuesday morning after stabbing a Yale University student, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities said 22-year-old Tyler Carlisle jumped from a ninth-story window in an apartment complex across the street from the university after stabbing 21-year-old Alexander Michaud. Carlisle fell onto a terrace on the building’s third floor and died. Michaud was hospitalized and was listed in stable condition as of Tuesday night.

Carlisle, who recently graduated from the university, worked on Santorum’s presidential campaign in 2012 and was the campaign manager for Republican Joseph Bentivegna’s congressional campaign last year. Michaud, who is slated to graduate in 2017, is the publisher for a conservative campus publication, the Yale Free Press.

Michaud is also listed as the “chancellor of cards and games” for the Party of the Right, a campus organization that described its mission on its website as making “Great Men.”

“We are a band of brothers, brought together by the battles we have fought,” the group’s website states. “The intense personal interaction that the Party demands of its Members helps to forge strong ties and lasting friendships. The Party holds many social events throughout the semester, which include Toasting Sessions, Nights of Cards and Games, Table at Commons, the Annual Banquet, the Fall Bacchanalian Orgy, and much more.”

The AP reported that Carlisle was also a member of the group. According to WCBS-TV, police described the two men as acquaintances.

“I don’t believe the victim was a roommate,” Officer David Hartman said. “We’re not certain about the relationship. We know that they knew one another.”

The university said in a statement that both mental health counselors and the school chaplain’s office were available for students seeking help following the fatal incident.

The Army Corps of Engineers could flood 130,000 acres of farmland in southeast Missouri by blowing up levees on a floodway on the Mississippi River if the remnants of Barry or other storms this summer dump too much rain.

The Coast Guard has posted plans to halt barge traffic if necessary on the Mississippi from the junction with the Ohio River at Cairo, Ill., to downstream of New Madrid, Mo.

Last chance for impeachment: Next week Robert Mueller will shape history — but how?

Published

on

When Robert Mueller comes to Congress next week to field questions — "answer" is too optimistic — about what he learned in his investigation of Russia and Donald Trump, it’ll be his and our last chance to get it right; to inform the American people of the enormity of Trump’s offenses and our sacred duty to impeach him. If he doesn’t want to, or can’t be made to, we may all say, in unison with Mitch McConnell, “case closed” as all hope of impeachment will have died.

It seemed as if our chance had passed; that due to the misfeasance of Robert Mueller and some Democrats, impeachment was all but dead. Trump’s latest racist tantrum — his noxious series of tweets directed at four progressive Democratic congresswomen — revived it simply by reminding Congress that he is morally unfit to be president of the United States. He is the greatest proved liar in the history of American public life. He runs the most corrupt administration in the history of the American presidency. He helped rig one election and now invites the rigging of another. He not only admits to being a serial sexual predator, but brags about it. But all that we knew.

Trump has a white-hot Twitter meltdown over the House vote condemning him as a racist

Published

on

President Donald Trump kept up his attacks on four Democratic congresswomen Tuesday in another early morning Twitter rant.

The president accused Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ihan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib -- whom he called on to leave the U.S. over the weekend -- of "spewing" profanity and "hateful" statements, and he urged Democratic leadership to "rebuke" them.

"The Democrat Congresswomen have been spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate, & yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democrat Party," Trump tweeted.
