    A woman trapped for six days in the Sierra was found by her brother as she crawled along a snow-covered dirt road where she and her male companion had been testing the man's new four-wheel-drive Jeep, authorities said Thursday. Paula Lane's companion didn't survive the ordeal and died in the snow after leaving Lane in the vehicle and setting out to find help, said a spokesman for the Alpine County Sheriff's Department. Lane crawled past her companion's dead body as she was trying to make it to safety, said Undersheriff Robert Levy.

    You may think there isn't much common-sense anywhere close to Capitol Hill, but less than a ten minute drive away there is a veritable wellspring to be found in the person of Dan Mitchell, Senior Fellow at CATO.  Mitchell is an expert on tax policy and supply-side economics. With the clock ticking rapidly to the end of the year when higher tax rates and budget sequestration are scheduled to automatically kick in, lawmakers are deadlocked over a solution to avoid going over "the fiscal cliff."  Most of the attention has focused on sucking more money out of the taxpayers pocket...

    Saudi Arabia remains the world’s top financier of terrorism and sponsor of fundamentalist Islam throughout the Arab Spring. U.S. media and Treasury officials don’t really like to discuss it in public, but a report earlier this fall from France 24 gives further confirmation, if you needed it, of the fact that Saudi petrodollars are behind the latest Salafist inroads in the Middle East. Read it all: How Saudi petrodollars fuel rise of Salafism Since the 2011 Arab revolts, a loose network of underground zealots has evolved into a potent and highly vocal force.

    Nechemya Weberman, an unlicensed counselor accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in his care, testified Wednesday that he ripped off a charity he founded ostensibly to help poor Brooklynites. “You used this not-for-profit for personal gain?” asked a Brooklyn prosecutor. “Yes I did,” Weberman replied, admitting that he spent donations meant for his group, B’Lev V’Nefesh, on tuition for his kids’ yeshiva — and that its cash was also spent at stores like BMG Corset & Lingerie. Creepy, sure. But par for the course in New York, where politicians routinely turn nonprofits into personal piggy banks. For example:

In a release to the media today, AFLC stated: “The legal brief demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt that CAIR is a criminal organization that deceptively holds itself out to the public as the nation's largest Muslim-American civil rights...

    If there is such a thing as a "tipping point" for proposals in the public policy arena, opening the "fiscal cliff" talks to C-SPAN cameras may have passed it. Two days after the election, I wrote in this space that putting the cameras in the room with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner was the only way for the public to know who is serious and who is still playing politics. Shining the light would also be more likely to force a genuine compromise. That column got a tepid response. So I fired off another missive repeating the suggestion...

    Saving the planet isn’t easy — or cheap —especially in California. The state’s anti-global-warming cap-and-trade program is the latest gimmick to leave it with yet another big hole to fill in its budget. The Golden State’s new carbon-trading program is the world’s second largest, after the European Union’s. The stated goal is to cut greenhouse-gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and another 80 percent by 2050. But California held its very first “carbon credit” auction last month — and it was a big disappointment. Under cap-and-trade, regulators set a limit on how much carbon dioxide a business or utility...

    Despite a better-than-expected November unemployment report, consumer confidence in the United States plummeted in December to its lowest level in four months. The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan’s preliminary index on consumer sentiment dropped to 74.5 this month, sharply lower when compared to the 5-year high of 82.7 in November. It was the lowest reading since August and well below estimates. Economists polled in a survey expected a median of 82.0, with the 67 economists projecting the figure to range between 80.0 and 88.0. Economists surveyed by Reuters placed a median forecast of 82.4 on the report. The fiscal cliff, a...

    The politicians claim that they are negotiating about how best to reduce the deficit. That irks me because our fiscal problem is excessive government spending. Red ink is merely a symptom of that underlying problem. But that’s a rhetorical gripe. My bigger concern is that politicians are prevaricating. They’re really talking about higher taxes in order to enable a bigger burden of government spending, not less red ink. I make this point in an interview on Fox Business Network.This is the point where I often elaborate on issues raised in the interview, but let’s instead build on the discussion to...

    President Obama often boils down the issues around his plan to raise income taxes by saying it's all about the "math," a subject he doesn't seem to know much about. No doubt the White House would argue the point, but the uncomfortable fact remains that after four years in office, the unemployment rate remains painfully high and economic growth is slowing down. Clearly, the president's math isn't working well, and neither are 23 million Americans who want full-time jobs. But even a cursory analysis of the mathematical issues at the center of the battle over the "fiscal cliff" raises some...

    One empire falls and another rises in its place. It’s an old story and it is what we are seeing in the Middle East. The Islamist resurgence was fed by the collapse of two world powers, the USSR and the US. The fall of the Soviet Union robbed the Arab Socialist dictatorships of their support. The last of these, Syria, is now under siege, by Sunni Islamist militias. Egypt’s Sadat had made the move to the American camp early enough to avoid the fate of Syria or Iraq, but instead his successor, Mubarak, encountered the fate of the Shah of...

    A currency war in the simplest form is basically when there is too much debt and not enough growth. - James Rickards, Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis Currency wars are real wars. But they are waged with currencies, stocks, bonds, derivatives, commodities, rather than guns and other kinetic weapons. In a currency war, countries try to manipulate their own currency to gain an unfair trade advantage. There is a currency war when one country tries to devalue its currency relative to others in order to promote exports and create jobs. Let's take an example. Some...

    General Motors is making more ridiculous Chevy Volt by flooding the web with stories of how 100 million electric miles have been driven since the Volt's much-hyped inception. Let's put the boasting in perspective. In the two plus years that it took for Volt drivers to put on 100 million miles, gas-powered vehicles logged over 5 TRILLION miles in the US. It would take only 5,000 cars traveling 10,000 miles a year to log 100 million miles in two years. The Volt has fallen far short of sales goals and has cost taxpayers billions of dollars in subsidies to reach...

His bride, in a shimmering turquoise maternity dress, walked down a red carpet with rose petals scattered by his 8-year-old twin nieces, to join a cantor who sang the Jewish blessings under a chuppah, a canopy held by a man on each corner, in a quasi-traditional wedding ceremony. The bridegroom broke the traditional glass under his foot, the guests cheered, and a jazz combo struck up syncopated rhythms heralding the happy couple. If that sounds more quasi- than traditional, the bridegroom gets credit for breaking through a social trend. More than 23 percent...

    DETROIT, MI - Bankruptcy may be inevitable for Michigan's largest city. State leaders, including Gov. Rick Snyder, are working on a plan to guide the city through a "managed bankruptcy," according to Daniel Howes at The Detroit News. An emergency fiscal manager likely would take over the city, supplanting a mayor and City Council that have been unable to implement meaningful reforms.

Petroleum fuels continue to dominate transportation sector consumption in AEO2013. However, gasoline consumption is expected to decline both in absolute terms and as a share of total transportation fuel demand, due to the introduction of more stringent corporate average fuel economy standards as well as demographic and economic changes. Petroleum-based diesel fuel is projected to account for a growing share of...

DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian made the prank call from Down Under, impersonating Prince Charles and the Queen to get information about Kate's...

Why'd he allegedly turn a hundred million dollars down? Arum claims that Mayweather hates fighting left-handed, unorthodox fighters. His closest fights have been against guys like this, and Arum says Mayweather becomes "completely vulnerable" against them. Mayweather is undefeated, and the chance...

    He may have embraced the president just before the election, but New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is keeping his distance from Obama when it comes to implementing Obamacare. Politico: ******* Echoing complaints from other Republican governors who have declined to build the key component of the president's health law, Christie stressed unanswered questions and potential costs. "We will comply with the Affordable Care Act but only in the most efficient and cost-effective way for New Jersey taxpayers," he said in a statement. But he said the federal government hasn't told states what they need to make the assessment. "Thus far,...

    Conservative Congressman Tim Huelskamp, one of three freshmen representatives ousted from top committee posts this week, slammed the House Republican leadership Thursday, and said that the purge was "a warning" to other members not to go against the party leaders on a fiscal cliff deal. "I think that was clearly a warning from leadership that 'We're watching your votes, and if you don't vote the way we like it, you might be punished like these three people,'" Huelskamp told Business Insider.

    Featured Term (selected at random):NICODEMUS A Pharisee and member of the Sanhedrin, who was intellectually in sympathy with Jesus but lacked the courage to become an avowed disciple. As recorded by the fourth Evangelist, he visited Jesus and questioned him about his teachings "by night," which suggests that it was a clandestine visit (John 3:1-2). He was a lone voice in the Sanhedrin, reminding his colleagues that should not condemn Jesus without giving him a hearing (John 7:50). Convincing evidence that he was at least a silent disciple is the fact that, when Joseph of Arimathea was burying the crucified...

    Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) suggested Friday he might not support Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) for Speaker. -snip- Amash and the other members kicked from the committees — Reps. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), and David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) — are known for not supporting leadership on votes. Boehner told GOP lawmakers at a closed-door meeting this week that leaders would be watching their votes, participants said. Amash, who lost a spot on the House Budget Committee, urged Boehner to release the voting scorecard that led to the decision. "It's pretty clear that they had a scorecard and if you were...

    There's a lot to be said for talking about the Constitution, economic theory and what's best for the country. However, one place we conservatives have slipped in recent years is framing our policies in a way that answers the very first question on the mind of most voters, "How does this benefit me?" That needs to change. Conservatism is an ideology that benefits everyone, but it's particularly helpful to middle class Americans. If we want to bring more of those voters to the Right, we have to do a better job of explaining to them exactly how we're going to...
  • In Talks on a Budget Deal, Boehner and Obama Stand Alone (Boehner requests solo negotiations)

    12/07/2012 8:10:05 AM PST · by Windy City Conservative · 5 replies
    At House Speaker John A. Boehner’s request, Senate leaders and Representative Nancy Pelosi have been excluded from talks to avert a fiscal crisis, leaving it to Mr. Boehner and President Obama alone to find a deal, Congressional aides say. All sides, even the parties excluded, say clearing the negotiating room improves the chance of success. It adds complexity as the two negotiators consult separately with the leaders not in the room. But it also minimizes the number of people who need to say yes to an initial agreement.
