    Since the DemRats do not wish to abide by Constitutional principles and government if someone knows how to and would create a Petition to Expel the Democrats and/or the Blue states from the Union online I'm sure it would quickly pick up team .

    Kathy Maggio, 56, lives a half block away from the beach on 126th Street, in a one-story brick house in Rockaway, Queens. Hurricane Sandy severely damaged her house: Flood waters gushed in, leaving leaking ceilings, a ruined skylight, water-logged walls and a basement full of destroyed furniture, rugs, and boxes of photos and keepsakes. Maggio said she saw volunteers in her hard-hit neighborhood shortly after the storm hit. "So I saw these guys walking around, removing debris at a neighbor's house," Maggio said. Two days later, she said, half a dozen volunteers were at her door. They were members of...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Authorities hope new composite sketches released Tuesday night will help them locate a suspect and his teenage victim who was reportedly abducted and assaulted near the El Sereno Recreation Center. Witnesses reported seeing a teenaged girl arguing with a male suspect just before 8 p.m. Monday. They said he struck her in the face and then pulled the girl up the hillside by her hair, Los Angeles police said. More than 250 police officers and searchers scoured a 450-acre area near the 4900 block of Klamath Street Monday night and throughout the day Tuesday. The search...

    Finally, a silver lining in the dark cloud of last week’s election returns. John “Liveshot” Kerry is in the running to become secretary of defense, which means he wouldn’t be a senator from Massachusetts anymore. Please God, let it happen. How can we miss him when he won’t go away?

That of course would be by preserving the tax cuts for middle class families that were first put in place by the Bush administration, and that Big Guy voted...

    Nate Silver has gotten a lot of press for his near perfect election night predictions. In 2008 Silver gained popularity and influence after he called 49 out of 50 states. Many pundits were predicting that Silver would crash and burn in 2012. Instead, he outperformed his 2008 predictions and now that Florida has been called for president Obama, Silver can tout a perfect record 50 out of 50 states called correctly.How did Silver do it?Only Likely Voters Matter: This is one obvious reason SilverÂ’s method outshines everyone else. Anything other than likely voter models is useless information. This is key....

    Video link below. An award-winning emergency room doctor, accused of careening through a Wellesley parking lot and ramming another car while allegedly high on drugs and alcohol, told cops she was just out trying to buy her Thanksgiving turkey, police report. “I was listening to NPR radio ... in my car ... and decided I needed to get gas,” Dr. Kristin Howard told police. “I was going to Whole Foods to buy a Thanksgiving turkey,” she said. What happened next on Friday morning landed her in handcuffs. The doctor said she couldn’t control the accelerator in her Subaru Outback. Police...

    West African leaders met on Sunday in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, to put the final touches to a military plan drawn up with input from the EU and the United Nations. The mission, expected to launch early next year, will be made up of as many as 3,300 troops, most of them from Mali but with reinforcements from Niger, Burkina Faso and other African nations. “We expect that there will be support from the EU in the order of 200 to 400 military support troops to help train the African Union force,” one European diplomat with knowledge of the proceedings...
  • Chris Matthews Claims GOP Ignorant of Science While Claiming Plants Absorb Carbon Monoxide

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Note to Chris Matthews: when seeking to slam Republicans for their supposed ignorance of science, try not to expose your own. On Tuesday's Hardball, Matthews—mocking the Republican congressmen vying for the chairmanship of the House Science Committee— committed this whopper: "As we all learned in grammar school—young people watching—trees absorb carbon monoxide." Uh, no, Chris. As even an MSNBC host might know, carbon monoxide is a toxic gas produced when there is insufficient oxygen to permit complete oxidation. Think running car in closed garage. Trees absorb carbon dioxide. Perhaps it was just a slip of the overworked Matthews' tongue, but...

    Every single state in the union has created a petition to secede from the United States in the aftermath of President Obama's reelection. Already, in a mere week, seven states have exceeded 25,000 each, which triggers an automatic review from the White House (or so they've promised). Those states are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. At the time of writing, Texas has already garnered an incredible 97,083 signatures. In fact, over a thousand had signed the petition in the time it took to write this article. Texas's petition reads: The US continues to suffer economic difficulties...

    A Chicago voting-machine tech is sounding the alarm, claiming he witnessed multiple error messages on the voting touch-screens this election – but only in cases where people voted for Mitt Romney. Steve Pickrum said he worked for Chicago’s election system during the early voting and Election Day voting for the 2012 race. As an equipment manager for the system, Pickrum said, he responded whenever there was a glitch with a voting machine. “On early voting, when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and...

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/14/2012 | Ron Reale
    I have been accosted by numerous friends and acquaintances recently, Barack Obama acolytes all, with a smug attitude of superiority concerning the re-election of the President. As though the election was a personal contest between myself and them, and they won. No American citizen is the winner of this election. I have pointed out, especially to my fellow workers, that their choice will bring about a reduced work week for all of us, to 29 hours, due to the onerous regulations of the Obamacare law. We will have less money in our pocket. (1) I have pointed out that we...

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/14/2012 | Doug Book
    The reason for General David Petraeus’ sudden, forced resignation is as plain as the ass on a goat. Barack Obama wanted to discredit Petraeus, prejudice the American public against him and effectively intimidate the general into silence lest he spill the beans to congress about the Regime’s criminal activities of providing arms, fighters and support to Syrian terror groups from the Chris Stevens-managed, Benghazi mission. Of course, Obama also didn’t want anyone “in-the-know” testifying about his treacherous betrayal of Stevens and 3 other Americans as he deliberately offered them up to al Qaeda killers. A dead Regime operative can never...

    Sanjay Sangohee has by all accounts enjoyed great success since coming to America. His Huffington Post biography makes that abundantly clear: "Sanjay Sanghoee is a banker and the author of Merger, a fast-paced financial thriller published by Forge Books and reviewed by Chicago Tribune, BARRON’s and others - available on Amazon. . . . He has more than a decade of experience in banking, ranging from Mergers & Acquisitions at Lazard and Dresdner to the investment side at Ramius, a multi-billion dollar hedge fund." One might expect that such prosperity would have inspired some gratitude for the system of government...

    After confirming the death of Ahmed Jabari, commander of Hamas’s military arm, Ezz e-din al-Qassam, Hamas announced: We are now at war with Israel. Jabari, 52, was killed by a targeted Israeli air attack in Gaza City. A key figure in the radical Palestinian Hamas movement, he was caught driving in a black Mercedes in Gaza City. Hamas has announced a general call-up and threatened to respond not just with rockets but suicide attacks. Israeli sources say the air operation called Pillar of Cloud is underway against more Hamas leaders and its military infrastructure and rocket stocks across the Gaza...

    First Things ^ | 11/14/12 | George Weigel
    President Obama’s re-election and the prospect of a second Obama administration, freed from the constraints imposed by the necessity of running for re-election, have created a crisis for the Catholic Church in the United States. In the thought-world and vocabulary of the Bible, “crisis” has two meanings: the conventional sense (a grave threat) and a deeper sense (a great moment of opportunity). Both are applicable to the Church in America these next four years. The immediate threat, of course, is the HHS (Health and Human Services) mandate requiring Catholic institutions and Catholic employers to include coverage of contraceptives, sterilizations, and...

    The Republican Party went into the 2012 elections with a number of handicaps. One of the biggest of these handicaps was that it genuinely believed in a single country defined by the American Dream of family values, hard work and national greatness. The Democratic Party, which scored decisive victories across the country, never believed in any such thing, though its leading lights, like Obama, occasionally paid lip service to the idea as a sop to older white voters who would have been turned off by the 2012 version of Obama sounding like the 2002 version of Obama. Where the Republican...
