  • Now Chris Matthews Thinks The Word 'Urban' Is Racist

    11/14/2012 6:15:24 PM PST · by chessplayer · 40 replies
    The list of words MSNBC's Chris Matthews believes are racist if uttered by a conservative got longer on Wednesday. You can now add "urban" which offended Matthews when Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said it during an interview Monday, but didn't bother the Hardball host in the slightest when Salon's Joan Walsh said it on his own program two days later (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary): "There's more of this dog whistle crap going on," said Matthews before he introduced guests Walsh and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Cynthia Tucker. Really? So if a conservative talks about urban, suburban, and ex-urban...

    They do it for coal-burning power plants. So how about something for what many consider to be a walking smokestack — the cigarette smoker? Yes, a license to smoke. Simon Chapman, a professor of public health at the University of Sydney in Australia, offers this radical proposal to help reduce the damaging health effects of tobacco, both for the user and the recipient of second-hand smoke.
  • Al Gore calls on Barack Obama to 'act boldly' on climate change

    UK Guardian ^ | 10/12/2012 | Suzanne Goldenberg,
    The former vice-president and climate champion, Al Gore, has called on Barack Obama to seize the moment and use his re-election victory to push through bold action on climate change. The president has faced rising public pressure in the wake of superstorm Sandy to deliver on his promise to act on global warming. But none of those calling on Obama to act carries the moral authority of Gore, who has devoted his post-political career to building a climate movement. Now, Gore said, it is the president's turn. He urged Obama to immediately begin pushing for a carbon tax in negotiations...

    Marc Faber Warns Global Stock Markets Will Implode Stock-Markets / Financial CrashNov 14, 2012 - 04:09 AM In this "Squawk Box" excerpt, Marc Faber warns investors to prepare for an eventual "'reset" of the global financial system: “The market is going down because corporate profits will begin to disappoint, the global economy will hardly grow next year or even contract, and that is the reason why stocks, from the highs of September of 1,470 on the S&P, will drop at least 20 percent, in my view.” “There will be pain and there will be very substantial pain. The question is...

    On his Wednesday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners not to have high expectations for embattled former CIA Director David Petreaus’ testimony on the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, but, according to Limbaugh, if Petreaus says anything differently than what he had said right after the attack, he could be branded a liar. “If Petraeus goes in there and says anything different than what he said on Sept. 13, do you know the world of hurt that...

    A Montana state lawmaker is asking that he be paid in gold coins because of his lack of faith in the U.S. dollar amid a rising deficit. Jerry O’Neil, a Republican just reelected in his northern Montana district, says his constituents told him he was not honoring his duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution, which O’Neil and Gold Standard supporters say requires the government to print money backed by gold.

    In 1969, Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn (who were to become Pres. Obama's personal friends and associates for many years) put Charles Manson on the cover of their occasional newspaper, "Fire". Throughout their career as terrorist bombers, Ayers and Dohrn were constantly trying to break the Left free of its "bourgeois" commitment to any standard of justice or decency.
  • Petraeus mistress had substantial classified data on computer: sources

    11/14/2012 5:56:14 PM PST · by Arthurio · 68 replies
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A computer used by Paula Broadwell, the woman whose affair with CIA Director David Petraeus led to his resignation, contained substantial classified information that should have been stored under more secure conditions, law enforcement and national security officials said on Wednesday. The contents and amount of the classified material - and questions about how Broadwell got it - are significant enough to warrant a continuing investigation, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to comment publicly. The details about material held by Broadwell, a reserve officer in military intelligence, emerged...

    Larry Elder explains how Barack Obama's party has betrayed minorities In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: “In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man.” Obama appears to have held on to most of his percentage of the black vote from 2008 – even though the black unemployment rate in October reached 14.3 percent.

    Now that disaffected Americans in all 50 states have petitioned the Obama administration for the right to secede from the United States, the door is open for far more important petitions — like a request to have a catered pizza party once Missouri strikes out on its own. (RELATED: White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation) Is it funnier that real people actually submitted these ten proposals to the White House, or that the administration has only removed two of them fr0m public view? You tell us. And if you actually sign any of these, you have no...

    The first thing conservatives should understand about the electoral catastrophe that just befell us — and it was a catastrophe — is that any explanation of it that centers on Mitt Romney is mistaken.Much of the discussion of the race among conservatives has made the opposite assumption. “Romney proved to be the kind of electoral drag many of us suspected he would always be,” wrote one conservative the morning after the election. “It was a flawed candidacy from the start,” wrote two others. “Romney’s caution and ever-shifting policy positions made him seem fearful, which is to say weak.

    New York Times Middle East correspondents Fares Akram and Isabel Kershner reported today that they are confused about current events in the Middle East. Despite the launching of more than 800 rockets from Gaza into Israel in 2012—including hundreds in the past week—the Times expressed uncertainty about whether any rockets have been fired at all. The Israeli military operation that commenced today is “in response to what Israel called repeated rocket attacks,” according to the Times. The Times is also uncertain about the nature of Hamas, a U.S.- and Israeli-designated terrorist organization. The Times reports that Hamas is a “militant...
