    ....................After the end of the Cold War, the Brussels élites started picking fights with what they called the world's hyperpuissance. They channelled funds to Hamas, declined to get tough with the ayatollahs in Teheran, declared their willingness in principle to sell weapons to China, refused to deal with the anti-Castro dissidents in Cuba, started building a satellite system with the Chinese to challenge American 'technological imperialism' (J Chirac), hectored the US about its failure to join various global technocracies and complained about domestic American policies, from cheap energy to the use of the death penalty. Most Americans, even some in...

    Let me say on the record that I don’t really care about New Jersey. I know very little about it. But, I know this much: I don’t want to live there and I don’t want the rest of the United States to resemble New Jersey. For me New Jersey is the Joe Piscopo character asking anyone and everyone “Are you from Jersey? I’m from Jersey.”Also, I’ve never seen the TV show “Jersey Shore,” but still I don’t like it. And know that I don’t want the rest of the country to resemble it, either.It’s the state that elected Jon Corzine...

    The American Thinker ^ | 9 January 2013 | Eileen F. Toplansky
    During World War II, a group known as the Monuments Men, "attempted to minimize [Nazi] damage to European monuments and architecture and then track down stolen works of art. In the end Allied Forces located more than 1,000 repositories of art, sculpture, and furniture stolen by the Nazis," a search which continues to this day. In his book entitled Rescuing Da Vinci, author Robert M. Edsel, quotes William Shirer who described Hitler thusly: I observed his face. It was grave, solemn, yet brimming with revenge. There was also in it, as in his springy step, a note of the triumphant...

    Who knew pulling off the perfect drive-thru prank was such an art. While most of us are going about our daily lives, career clowns are thinking long and hard about how they can better the competition with the ultimate mobile meal manoeuvrings. The internet is full of such videos, which can make it hard to spot a really good one. But Rahat the Magician Prankster yesterday unveiled his latest fast-food funny on YouTube, and it blows his competitors out of the, um, drive-thru lane. Video: hereNews article link: here

    Barack Obama, we have been told by his admirers on the left and right, is an instinctive centrist, a moderate always ready to negotiate compromises, a politician deeply interested in the nuances of public policy. His image as a centrist took hold at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, where he gave a speech hailing not the blue states or the red states but the United States of America. But over the course of Obama's first term, this analysis increasingly sounded like wishful thinking. And never more than during the past week, with the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be secretary...

    The New York Post headline read: "Could You Spend $500 on Food at This Bodega? A Welfare Recipient Claimed To!" A few days later, another headline: "Welfare Recipients Take Out Cash at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores and X-Rated Shops." "They're on the dole -- and watching the pole," wrote the Post. "Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs -- where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers." Here's how it works. Welfare recipients receive Electronic Benefit Transfer cards, preloaded with specified dollar amounts for...

    NASA ^ | January 10, 2012 | (see photo credit)
    Explanation: Cosmic bullets pierce the outskirts of the Orion Nebula some 1500 light-years distant in this sharp infrared close-up. Blasted out by energetic massive star formation the bullets, relatively dense, hot gas clouds about ten times the size of Pluto's orbit, are blue in the false color image. Glowing with the light of ionized iron atoms they travel at speeds of hundreds of kilometers per second, their passage traced by yellowish trails of the nebula's shock-heated hydrogen gas. The cone-shaped wakes are up to a fifth of a light-year long. The detailed image was created using the 8.1 meter Gemini...

    As a senator and presidential candidate, Barack Obama said that he detested budget deficits. In 2006, when the aggregate national debt was almost $8 trillion less than today, he blasted George W. Bush's chronic borrowing and refused to vote for upping the debt ceiling: "Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here.'" In 2008, Obama further blasted Bush's continued Keynesian borrowing: "The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of...

    My undergraduate studies took place at Presbyterian College, a liberal arts school of about 1,000 students in Clinton, S.C. The town was so small that you had to leave it to find a McDonald's or go to a movie. The campus was picturesque. Old, tall oak trees, brick buildings, a lawn where students played Frisbee and football, a girls' freshman dorm that had shared bathrooms in the hall and no air conditioning. When I started, I knew only one other student (the previous year's valedictorian from my high school), but I gained many lifelong friends along the way. While the...

    By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. we’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home. "I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...

    “The big lie in this whole thing is that we have this sensible country with a dysfunctional Washington. The reality is we have a country of people who want to bankrupt their children and spend money on themselves and they will punish any politician who prevents them from doing that. They will punish Republicans if they cut entitlements. They will punish Democrats if they cut entitlements.”
  • Proof Benghazi was Murder of Stevens by Regime

    <p>Hillary began pushing the fake "protests against a video blaspheming the prophet" BEFORE WOODS AND DOHERTY WERE KILLED. Per the story below, the Associated Press first published a story on Hillary's official statement on Benghazi at 10:58pm Eastern, which means that the State Department must have released it BEFORE 10:58 pm EDT. Which means that is was actually written and composed hours before that. State Department press releases in the Secretary of State's name aren't written and released without all kinds of "approvals" and process. And this statement is written in nuanced prose, referencing "religious tolerance" and all kinds of bullshit. It isn't a flash bulletin. It was thought out, long and hard.</p>

    GLOBAL warming is on a 20-year “plateau”, the UK’s top climate researchers have revealed. Sceptics celebrated this week when the Met Office acknowledged temperatures are only creeping slightly above highs the world hit in 1998 and will be much the same over the next five years. Even the forecasters’ harshest critics say this does not mean the world’s climate will stop heating up but it raises questions over what the scientists and their £30million super-computer think is really going on. THE Met Office have revealed that global warming appears to have STALLED. The upwardly surging arrow used on graphs warning...
