    A good chunk of Long Island is still in the dark after 12 days now and nobody seems to care. It’s not like the president needs to show up for a photo op since these poor bastards overwhelmingly vote for him anyway. He’ll come visit eventually, so hold tight to your candles. It’s also not clear if power will return to the schools in time, so the town has purchased generators for the schools to run on. National Grid, which manages the power grid owned by LIPA, said 95 percent of residents that live in non-flood zones, should have power...

    This post is written in anger and frustration. Angry that we continue to follow the Republican Party’s elite ignorance. A party that continues to pull defeat from the jaws of victory characterized by pompous fools who fulfill the sterotype built by the left. Frustrated that the reality of politics is this: There will be no third party capable of competing with the coalition constructed by the dems. As a result, true conservatives MUST take steps to irradicate the ignorance of the Republican Party while still adhering to the core values of our forefathers (beliefs that I discovered are considered extreme...

  • Woman plunges to death as bailiffs arrive to evict her (Bilbao, Spain)

    A woman jumped to her death as bailiffs approached to evict her from her fourth-floor Spanish apartment for failing to pay the mortgage. It was the second apparent suicide linked to evictions and further highlights the dire conditions many Spaniards find themselves in as the country’s economy sinks. The government recently created a task force to study how to reduce evictions because of the devastating personal impact of repossessions due to tough mortgage rules and growing unease among the public on the subject. The unnamed 53-year-old woman threw herself from her balcony in a suburb of Bilbao, the regional Interior...

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's office was notified of the attack 50 minutes after it began, and Panetta learned of it shortly thereafter as he and the military's top general headed to a previously scheduled meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House. Obama, Panetta and Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed potential responses to the unfolding events in Benghazi during their meeting, which began 78 minutes after the start of the Libya attack, according to the timeline. Panetta and Dempsey then returned to the Pentagon and began a two-hour series of meetings...

Take your performance personally—if you are proud to be average, so too will be your troops. 2. A leader must provide a vision—clear and achievable “big ideas” combined in a strategic concept—and communicate those ideas throughout the entire organi­zation and to all other stakeholders.

    ..And one lawsuit still pending I have not watched any media coverage after Romney conceded the election on Tuesday night. Why bother? It's just the same old noise we hear every four years. The talking heads spew nothing but meaningless "should have" or "could have" or "did't do this" while completely avoiding the massive amount of problems with vote fraud in all its forms. Fine, let them talk while we fight. Also, stop with the "America RIP" rhetoric. That plays right into the hands of the destroyers. It fosters nothing but a sense of defeat instead of I am a...

  • Why Did CIA Director Petraeus Suddenly Resign..And Why Was the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Murdered?

    11/10/2012 6:10:09 PM PST · by Perdogg · 16 replies
    The Deeper Questions Behind the Ambassador’s Murder … and the CIA Boss’ Sudden Resignation While the GOP is attacking (and Dems defending) the Obama administration in connection with the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, there is a deeper story. Sure, it is stunning that the State Department never requested backup or that people such as Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer allege that President Obama personally watched in real time the attacks as they occurred via video feeds from drones flying over the Benghazi consulate. But these claims only can be assessed – and the whole confusing mess only makes...
  • Johnny Football takes down Alabama - If he stays four years he might win 4 Heisman Awards

    Just saw Johnny Football take down #1 Alabama. This little guy is another Doug Flutie. If he stays four years and he might because he'll too small to play in the NFL, he might win four Heisman Awards. He's that good. It's too bad Texas A&M lost two close games to LSU and Florida. For my money they are the best team in the country.

    The Pentagon has just released their version of the 9/11 timeline and I think it is very interesting and damning to Obama. Specifically, we know that Panetta, Obama, Biden, and Donilon were at the White House for a previously scheduled 5 pm meeting. The attack had been going on for 50 minutes before Panetta was notified, and he was aware it was ongoing ..........................Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his top military adviser were notified of the attack about 50 minutes after it began and were about to head into a previously scheduled meeting with President Barack Obama. The meeting quickly...

    I'm reading "J. Edgar Hoover, The Man And His Secrets" by Curt Gentry. The author sounds like some left wing high school hack who wants only to grind an axe. Plus, the book is very poorly written. Convoluted and disorganized. This guy is pathetic. Can you recommend something better?
  • AP story points to Huntsman Jr. as Secretary of State candidate

    11/10/2012 5:51:18 PM PST · by Arthurio · 26 replies
    SALT LAKE CITY — A story published Thursday by the Associated Press named Jon Huntsman Jr. as a possible pick to replace Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State, but the former ambassador and governor has stayed tight-lipped about the possibility. In an interview with KSL, Huntsman spoke about the need to put the "country first" with a tough presidential campaign now over. He spoke about his own plans in very general terms, sidestepping a question about what's next in his future plans.

    A teacher at Deerfield Beach High School is fighting the Broward school district over its handling of an accusation that she possibly contributed to a young girl's homosexuality. Juliet Hibbs, a straight woman currently on medical leave, was investigated last year for misconduct after the girl's parents made those allegations to the school's principal. However, the district cleared her and no action was taken.

    Argentina could face a credit crisis a decade after its $100 billion default due to a U.S. court ruling that says the country must pay creditors, who still hold defaulted bonds, every time it services its restructured debt. About 93 percent of Argentine bondholders agreed to swap their defaulted debt for new issues in 2005 and 2010, but "holdout" creditors who rejected the swaps continue to press in courts worldwide for full repayment on the bonds. Late last month, a federal appeals court in New York ruled that Argentina violated bond provisions to treat all creditors equally when it made...

    Whoever chose Baroness Warsi’s study when she was moved to the Foreign Office in the Cabinet reshuffle two months ago must have had a keen sense of history. ..... And which white Tory could possibly tackle thorny issues, such as the grooming of vulnerable young white girls by Pakistani men in Northern towns like Rochdale, with her courage and credibility? A small minority of Pakistani, Afghani and Bangladeshi men think Asian women are second-class citizens and white girls are third-class citizens,’ Warsi told me. ..... ‘Being brought up — before the politically correct brigade got going — on harvest festivals,...
