  • Chris Christie: “I wouldn’t call what I did an embrace of Barack Obama”

    (snip) To repeat a point I made in the Matthews thread, if not for the photo op with Christie and the corrupt media’s breathless coverage of it, O would have been nearly invisible during Sandy. I thought he’d get no meaningful political benefit whatsoever from looking “presidential” for a day or two afterward, but to my amazement the exit poll suggests otherwise — and it may very well not have happened if not for Christie turning it into a story. I don’t know if he really was just too tired and stressed to consider the political implications or if he...
  • Meth May Fight Flu Virus, Study Suggests

    Meth kills brain cells, fuels tooth decay, loads the body with toxins and weakens the heart, muscles and immune system. But the otherwise body-wrecking drug may also have flu-fighting properties, new research suggests. A group of scientists from the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan set out to study how methamphetamine interacts with influenza A virus in lung cells. Previous research has suggested that chronic meth abuse makes individuals more susceptible to pathogens such as HIV. The team wanted to investigate how the drug might reduce users' resistance to flu viruses. They took cultures of human lung epithelial cells, exposed...
  • Scarborough To Republicans: 'Stop Blaming The Media'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough apparently thinks so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media." Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan." But Scarborough suggested just the opposite: that...

    The Unrivaled Power of Prayer "We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" —Romans 8:26 We realize that we are energized by the Holy Spirit for prayer; and we know what it is to pray in accordance with the Spirit; but we don’t often realize that the Holy Spirit Himself prays prayers in us which we cannot utter ourselves. When we are born again of God and are indwelt by the Spirit of God, He expresses for us the unutterable.“He,” the...

    The six signs posted on Lyons Jewelers in Bedford got everyone's attention on Wednesday. "There's one saying shame on USA and Virginia. Oh my God." The signs explained why Lyons Jewelers was not open. The largest sign told people it was closed to "Mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us." Another sign said "The president seeks my demise." A friend of the owner, R.T. Lyons, tell us "He done it to show that he didn't agree and didn't like what happened." Many people we spoke with were very upset by the signs. "I don't think...

    MADRID (MarketWatch) — U.S. stockmarket futures inched cautiously higher on Thursday, as investors remained on edge after fiscal-cliff worries triggered a post-election plunge for Wall Street the prior day. Asia stocks tumbled in the wake of those losses. Weekly jobless and trade-deficit numbers, along with an interest-rate decision from the European Central Bank are among the day’s main events. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJZ2 +0.19% rose 14 points to 12,877, while futures for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index SPZ2 +0.14% rose 0.6 point to 1,389.70.

    The election laid bare a dual — and dueling — nation, politically speaking, jaggedly split down the middle on the presidency and torn over much else. It seems you can please only half of the people nearly all of the time. Americans retained the fractious balance of power in re-electing President Barack Obama, a Republican House and a Democratic Senate, altogether serving as guarantors of the gridlock that voters say they despise. Slender percentages separated winner and loser from battleground to battleground, and people in exit polls said yea and nay in roughly equal measure to some of the big...

  • Man flies flag upside-down to protest election outcome

    News Center 7 received calls Wednesday night from residents in Beavercreek who were not happy about their neighbor flying the U.S. flag upside-down. One caller said it might not be illegal, but it’s offensive to the people in the neighborhood. Despite what his neighbors think, Ray Lewis said flying the flag upside-down is an international symbol of distress and he felt compelled to do it as a form of “peaceful protest” following the re-election of President Barack Obama.

    Stockton Springs Community Church in Waldo County, Maine, has been vandalized with swastikas spray-painted on its front door and on two signs on its lawn, supposedly for the church's support of traditional marriage. "I was shocked and horrified when I arrived at the church this morning and saw swastikas painted all over our property. Clearly, those who want to redefine marriage also want to redefine tolerance," said Pastor Steve DeGroft. "Our congregation has taken a loving and respectful stand for traditional marriage in our community, but those who disagree want to silence and intimidate us. We can't be apathetic, and...
