John Salvatore



Try not to be distracted by the dancing girl in the background as this North Carolina man explains his story after learning he just won a $344 million lottery jackpot.

If nothing else, Charles W. Jackson Jr. should put a big smile on your face.

With all the craziness going on in the world, here’s a two-minute break we all need.

Trending: Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’


Already retired and now has more money than he could spend in 10 lifetimes.

Not a bad gig, if you can get it.

News & Record has more:

Jackson, 66 and retired, had won the largest lottery jackpot in North Carolina history. He opted to take the lump-sum payout option of $223 million, which after state and federal taxes will net him $158 million.


Jackson said he would donate money to three charities — St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Shriners Hospital for Children and the Wounded Warrior Project — and take a trip to Vietnam, where his wife is from. Other than that, he doesn’t have any plans.


Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, but Jackson bought the only ticket last week that matched all six numbers: 6, 15, 34, 45, 52 and the Powerball 8. The odds of winning are about 1 in 292.2 million.

The store where Jackson purchased the ticket, Carlie C’s IGA in Hope Mills, will receive $50,000.


Let’s hear from YOU.

If you wound up taking home $158 million from the state lottery, what’s your next move?

Retire? Vacation? Pay off debt?

Get a Ferrari? A yacht?

Buy an entire island, name it after yourself and declare it a liberal-free zone?

The sky is the limit.

Have at it.

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.



Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.



One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
