    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. Behind the remarkable rise of Salafism lies...

    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:

    Last Friday, the Law Offices of David Yerushalmi, P.C. and the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) said that they filed a devastating legal brief supported by hundreds of pages of evidence, asking a federal judge to find the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) liable to five of its former clients for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. 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...
  • Big Mo for Putting C-SPAN Cameras on 'Fiscal Cliff' Talks

    Washington Examiner ^ | December 6, 2012 | Mark Tapscott
    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...

    Today, the conservative media reported on an interesting story. The Department of Defense spent over $100,000 for a seminar. The topic of the seminar? Did Jesus also die for the Klingons? As nutty as that sounds, there is a serious question that seminar raises and it has nothing to do with Klingons. What is it?

    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...
