St. Pete police: Man, woman caught stealing packages with infant in car!

Bay News9 ^ | 12/9/15 | Laurie Davison 

A man and a woman accused of stealing packages before crashing their car in downtown St. Petersburg are in custody at a nearby hospital.
According to police, Derick Corbett, 23, was reportedly taking packages from the front porch of a residence in the 400 block of 9th Avenue NE around 4 p.m.
Renee Prine was jogging by and noticed what was happening.
"At first I just thought he was a Fed Ex delivery man or a UPS man, so I was kind of surprised when I saw him running," she said.
She realized what was happening and called police.
Corbett fled to a car with a woman identified as 21-year-old Casandra Cole inside and sped away from the scene, police said. The officer did not pursue.
A few moments later, the suspect vehicle was involved in a crash at 5th Avenue North and 1st Street with another car. Immediately after the accident, police said Corbett and Cole ran from the car carrying a 6-month-old baby boy, who had a visible head injury as a result of the crash.
Officers responded to the area and located the couple with the infant, who is believed to be their son, in some vegetation in the 200 block of 5th Avenue North.
"By then, our officers are all over the area and when our officer tried to approach them to make the arrest, the man held the baby up as a human shield," said Yolanda Fernandez, with the St. Police Police Department. "And you put this child's life in danger."
The baby was removed, and officers arrested Cole and Corbett.
The couple and the infant have been taken to the hospital for treatment. Corbett is listed as a trauma alert with a head injury, but it does not appear that Cole or the baby have life-threatening injuries, officers said.
Officers did report that the infant did have a significant head laceration when found.
It is anticipated that Corbett and Cole will be charged with burglary, possible from a number of locations as packages from several different addresses were located in the car. Also charges regarding child endangerment will be filed. Corbett, who was driving, will be also be charged with fleeing and eluding, no valid driver's license and leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries.

Tripwire Alert – GOPe Signals Intent To Use “Mississippi Strategy” Against Trump

The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 12-9-2015 | sundance 

The professional apparatus of the Republican Party are signaling their intent to do exactly what we predicted they would do. Trump will win the primary, and the GOPe will split the party to run an additional candidate in the general election.
It’s not Trump going third party – It’s the establishment GOP (GOPe) intending to go third party. They are planning a modified version of the Mississippi Strategy from 2014.

Most Republicans would be OK with President Trump

Herald Standard / Associated Press ^ | Thursday, December 10, 2015 2:00 am | Waldman 

WASHINGTON — The question of the day is whether Republicans, particularly the Republicans running for president, would support Donald Trump if he were to become the party's nominee. Much as they might hem and haw when they get asked — many insist that it's a moot point since he won't be the nominee — the real answer is simple: Of course they would.
Let's put what's happening right now in context. Periodically, the political press finds a question candidates (and sometimes other politicians as well) are having a difficult time answering, and so they ask it again and again. It's not necessarily a "gotcha" in that it has no answer that won't make the candidate look bad, but its attraction comes from the fact that the reporter knows it's going to make the candidate squirm. That doesn't mean it's not substantively revealing, however. For instance, a couple of months ago all the Republican candidates were asked whether the Iraq War was a mistake, and their answers did tell us something about what they've learned from recent history. Hillary Clinton is often asked how her plans on one topic or another differ from what the Obama administration has done, which puts her in an awkward position but also forces her to be specific about what course she intends to pursue.

Donald Trump leads in the polls, but Ted Cruz looks more like the favorite

WAPO ^ | Dec. 9, 2015 | Chris Cillizza 

The Iowa caucuses are 54 days away. Donald Trump is, still, the national front-runner. Marco Rubio is, now, the establishment's best (only?) hope. And Ted Cruz is the guy who looks best positioned to win.

Yes, you heard that right.

Ted Cruz, as of today, has the most direct route to the Republican presidential nomination -- assuming the past history of Republican nomination fights works as a broad predictor of where this race is headed.

Let me elaborate.

1. Cruz is positioned as the most conservative candidate in the race. While Trump gets all of the attention for his over-the-top statements, Cruz has staked out a position on the far right on virtually every major hot button issue -- from immigration to Obamacare to national security and the fight with ISIS. And, tonally, Cruz comes across as aggressively and unapologetically conservative -- a less controversial and unelectable version of Trump.

A Washington Post-ABC News November poll showed that Cruz's numbers are in the stratosphere with voters who identify themselves as "very" conservative; 69 percent had a favorable opinion of him while just 21 percent regard Cruz in an unfavorable light.

Hillary Clinton’s most repugnant lie
NY Post ^ | 12/10/2015 | Post Editorial Board 
Posted on 12/10/2015, 7:21:01 AM by Servant of the Cross
Liar, liar, pantsuit on fire: Hillary Clinton still insists she didn't tell the grieving families of the Benghazi victims that an anti-Islam video was to blame.

Yet family members say she said just that, three days after the attack, at the Sept. 14, 2012, ceremony at Andrews Air Force base.

George Stephanopoulos asked her Sunday if she'd told the victims it was about the film. Clinton gave a flat "no."

She added: "I said very clearly there had been a terrorist group, uh, that had taken responsibility on Facebook, um ..."

At least four family members disagree.

Tyrone Woods' father said he hugged Clinton and shook her hand. Then "she said we are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son ... She said "the filmmaker who was responsible for the death of your son.'"

Sean Smith's mother said Hillary is "absolutely lying ... She said it was because of the video." Smith's uncle backs her up.

Glen Doherty's sister agreed: "When I think back now to that day and what she knew, it shows me a lot about her character that she would choose in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue."
