Parrot witnesses murder, screams: ‘Don’t f—ing shoot!’

June 3, 2016: He may be a beautiful African grey parrot, but the bird apparently has the mouth of a sailor – because he wouldn’t stop shouting, “Don’t f—ing shoot!”

WND-20-YearsThe parrot, named Bud, could have been giving clues in a murder-mystery case after he witnessed the slaying of his owner in Ensley Township, Michigan.

In May 2015, Michigan resident Martin Duram, 45, was shot and killed in his home. Martin’s wife, Glenna, was found with a gunshot wound to her head, but she survived.

Michigan State Police say she left three suicide notes, and she’s now considered a suspect. Officials believed Glenna may have shot Martin five times before turning a gun on herself.

“I know for a fact I didn’t kill my husband,” Glenna told police, according to WOOD-TV 8, a station in Grand Rapids.

Meanwhile, after the slaying, Bud continued repeating the disturbing phrase in Martin’s voice: “Don’t f—ing shoot!”

“That bird picks up everything and anything, and it’s got the filthiest mouth around,” Martin Duram’s mother, Lillian, told the station.

Duram’s father, Charles, added, “I personally think he was there and he remembers it, and he was saying it.”

Clinton for-profit education scandal dwarfs Trump U

The scandal-prone Clintons

The scandal-prone Clintons

June 3, 2016: WND reported that Bill and Hillary Clinton’s attack on Donald Trump over Trump University invited increased scrutiny of the Clintons’ involvement in a for-profit education scandal in which a company that runs shell colleges paid Bill Clinton $16.5 million to be its pitchman.

While the Clintons were collecting millions, Hillary Clinton’s State Department funneled at least $55 million to a group run by the college company, Laureate Education Inc., according to Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash.”

Clinton abruptly resigned from his post as “honorary chancellor” in April 2015 when the disclosure was publicized. Documents uncovered by Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch show Laureate Education paid the former president through a “shell corporation” pass-through account that evidently passed State Department scrutiny while Hillary was secretary of state.

Further, in a story showing how for-profit colleges encourage huge student debt, Forbes found the biggest borrower on the for-profit college list is Laureate Education’s Walden University, whose grad students borrowed $756 million in 2014.

Bill Clinton’s hiring in 2004 as “honorary chancellor” sent the former president scurrying around the globe to make promotional appearances at Laureate campuses in countries such as Malaysia, Peru and Spain.

The company, created in 2004 on the base of the tutoring chain Sylvan Learning Centers, already owned 75 schools in 30 countries and was poised for a massive expansion as Bill Clinton’s name drew top-name, left-leaning investors, including George Soros, Henry Kravis of Wall Street investment banking firm KKR and Paul Allen of Microsoft fame.

Was Jesus Christ really a woman?

June 3, 2005: A publisher of a new version of the Gospels, based on Thomas Jefferson’s selective editing of the New Testament, went one step further and changed the gender of the Messiah to female and named her Judith Christ.

The new version, according to the publisher, revised familiar stories, tranforming the “Prodigal Son” into the “Prodigal Daughter” and the “Lord’s Prayer” into the “Lady’s Prayer.” The familiar passage on the crucifixion, from John 19:17-18, was changed to read: “And She bearing her cross went forth. There they crucified Judith.”

Amazon.com readers, posting their reviews of the new Gospel, were not amused. One read:

“A friend with a Hebrew doctorate noted to me: ‘There is no feminine form of the name Jesus (or Joshua). Judith is the feminine form of the name Juda – or Judas.’ How perfectly fitting!”
