  • Russian PM not joking – extraterrestrials live among us according to MIB documentary

    Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s off-air comments that Russian Presidents are given a secret file about extraterrestrials living among us created much media interest. Most news reports claimed that Medvedev was simply joking. His apparent reference to the Men In Black movie as a source of information on a super secret agency that monitors extraterrestrials on Earth was commonly cited as key evidence that he was in fact joking. The reasoning is that no political leader would refer reporters to a comedy to clarify national policy. It has now emerged that Medvedev was not referring to the Men in Black comedy...

    MSNBC's Ed Schultz named Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown coed who told a congressional panel that students were going broke buying contraception, a "middle class hero" for advocating free contraception, Twitchy reported Wednesday. "Even more hilarious," Twitchy said, "Fluke is boasting about it and preening." "Thx 4 including me in 2012 heroes & allowing me 2 share my friend's story--interview feels like lifetime ago," Fluke tweeted. According to Twitchy, conservatives on Twitter weren't impressed. "@SandraFluke hero? What a joke! Embarrassment is more like it," one person tweeted. "@SandraFluke what have you sacrificed to be labelled a hero? You're an underachieving grad...

    The Federal Reserve Has No Practical Option To End QE January 3, 2013, at 6:07 pm by Jim Sinclair in the category General Editorial | Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post Dear CIGAs, Such an announcement has been part of QE either from MSM or some Fed board member since it began. The implication of stopping QE is so dire to the economy that it is in a practical sense impossible. When gold was being sold by central banks during the 1970s market announcements were made constantly with the bias to depress metals....

    The media's so full of it. Over the past few weeks, the wife and I have been re-watching the brilliant HBO drama, "The Wire." The show's fifth and final season focuses on the plight of "The Baltimore Sun," as the daily newspaper deals with a collapsing business model in the age of the inter-webs. One of the story's subplots involves a reporter with ambitions to someday work for the "The New York Times" or "The Washington Post." He's a bit overly ambitious, though, and ends up falsifying quotes and sources in order to make a name for himself. One of...
  • Astronomy Picture of the Day -- Open Star Clusters M35 and NGC 2158

    NASA ^ | January 03, 2012 | (see photo credit)
    Explanation: Open clusters of stars can be near or far, young or old, and diffuse or compact. Found near the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, they contain from 100 to 10,000 stars, all of which formed at nearly the same time. Bright blue stars frequently distinguish younger open clusters. M35, on the upper left, is relatively nearby at 2800 light years distant, relatively young at 150 million years old, and relatively diffuse, with about 2500 stars spread out over a volume 30 light years across. An older and more compact open cluster, NGC 2158, is at the lower right....
  • George Neumayr: The Triumph of Tax-and-Spend Liberalism (that’s the upshot of bipartisanship)

    The American Spectator Magazine ^ | 1.3.13 @ 6:11 | George Neumayr
    The resolution to the fiscal cliff crisis was fittingly perverse, containing the very prodigal spending and denial of looming deficits that caused it. Washington never fails to use a crisis to compound the underlying elements of the crisis. This is what passes for bipartisanship in a demagogic age. Pols calculate that the full effects of a crisis won’t be felt until they’re safely out of office. So they don’t mind making it worse while pretending to solve it. Scaring Republicans into bad policy through such hectoring is the left’s forte and Republicans simply don’t have the courage or conviction to...

    Princeton, New Jersey (CNN) -- Somewhere in Texas, former President George W. Bush is smiling. Although some Democrats are pleased that taxes will now go up on the wealthiest Americans, the recent deal to avert the fiscal cliff entrenches, rather than dismantles, one of Bush's signature legacies -- income tax cuts. Ninety-nine percent of American households were protected from tax increases, aside from the expiration of the reduced rate for the payroll tax. In the final deal, Congress and President Barack Obama agreed to preserve most of the Bush tax cuts, including exemptions on the estate tax. When Bush started...
  • A culture war – or a war against Christ?

    One News Now ^ | Jan. 3, 2013 | Dr. Michael Youssef
    Some in the media have popularized the term "culture war," giving the impression that the war being waged against Christianity is the same thing as a war against everything that is traditional. But in 2013, let's change the term. Let's call it what it is: "A war against Christ." Certainly there are many American traditions rooted in Christian teaching and history. But mixing some traditions with what is purely Christ-honoring -- although it may recruit support from non-Christian traditionalists or conservatives -- dilutes the Christian dye. Take for example the ACLU's war against Christians praying in public schools while obliging...

    Former New York City mayoral candidate Mark Green drew a parallel between gun owners and child molesters Thursday evening on MSNBC. Green suggested that residing near gun owners and residing near child molesters may pose comparable risks, and thus there should be a registry for both: MARK GREEN: Well it is a neighbor’s interest, even if a law-abiding person has a person, has a permit, has a gun, Adam Lanza stole a gun from his mother who he of course killed. I’m a lawyer and believe in the right to privacy. This is in the public domain. The information is...

    A popular USO port in the Israeli city of Haifa was the center of a bitter dispute over U.S. funding for overseas operations in the late 1980s. Chuck Hagel, the one-time Republican Senator from Nebraska who President Barack Obama may nominate as the next secretary of defense, led the controversial charge to shutter the port during his tenure with the organization. Hagel, who served as president and CEO of the World USO from 1987 to 1990, expressed intense opposition to the USO Haifa Center during a tumultuous 1989 meeting with Jewish leaders, according to multiple sources involved in the fight...

    Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” Mayor Thomas M. Menino — a leading national gun control advocate — that President Obama will pass sweeping firearms reforms by the end of the month, the mayor said today. “He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino said at City Hall today. “They’re going to get it done.” The mayor, who has been recovering from a host of ailments for the past two months, said Biden called him several times while he was in the hospital, including a call after the Newtown school massacre to discuss...

    A Saucier hunter suspects his father's deer dog is dead. H.W. Krohn doesn't have proof, just a bloody collar he's turned over to Naval Construction Battalion Center investigators and a sad story to tell. A Seabee spokesman said the incident is under investigation. So far, Krohn's dog has not been found. Krohn has hunted the woods around Mississippi 15 for most of his 57 years, and more than once he's had a few deer dogs end up on Camp Keller, where the military's Woolmarket Rifle & Pistol Range is... Usually the dogs come back out the same way they went...

    On New Year's Eve, Chris Matthews got off one last sneering shot against conservatives. In a special 2012 retrospective, the Hardball anchor connected fiscal conservatism to segregation. After guest Howard Fineman insisted that Mitt Romney's aversion to tax increases during the primary doomed him in the general election, Matthews snorted, "It's today's politics! It's like, they used to say, you have to be the most segregationist guy in the south." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] He continued, "You can never be an inch away from it because somebody would always go to your right on that issue." Go to...

    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who reportedly will leave office at the end of this month, is already responsible for spending and borrowing more money than any of his predecessors as secretary of the Treasury. The U.S. Senate confirmed Geithner on Jan. 26, 2009. Between February 2009, the first full month of Geithner’s tenure, and the end of November 2012, the last full month for which federal spending records are available, the U.S. Treasury dispensed approximately $13.582319 trillion. …

    Actor/comedian Donnell Rawlings is speaking out against those criticizing the content of director Quentin Tarantino's hot-button hit "Django Unchained." Rawlings came to the director's defense after several high profile black artists, including Katt Williams and Spike Lee, savaged Tarantino for fusing slavery with an homage to spaghetti westerns. The comic actor's defense, however, was a tad indelicate. "We shootin' white people in this movie. The black dude leaves with his girl into the sunset. There can be no happier movie than that."
