  • Glenn announces epic Misfits Ball

    01/14/2013 4:03:21 PM PST · by Lucky9teen · 13 replies ^ | Monday, Jan 7, 201
    What is the Misfits Ball? Glenn announced on radio this morning that he plans to have a ball on Inauguration Day full of people who are no longer welcome in Obama’s Washington D.C. (editor’s note: We aren’t sure if the “That Guy” rule applies to digital, which is why we will occasionally mention the President by name until Glenn stops us). The event will be black tie, take place in the Dallas Studios, and Glenn is open to suggestions for the invite list. Some of the names thrown out there so far: Chik-Fil-A (not a person, Glenn), Hobby Lobby (again,...
  • Reid Downplays Chances for Assault Gun Ban, Filibuster Changes (keep calling!)

    01/14/2013 3:58:22 PM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 15 replies
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told a Nevada television station Friday that the Senate is unlikely to pass an assault weapons ban or a radical revamp of filibuster rules. But the Democratic leader was optimistic about changes to immigration laws, noting that it will be the chamber’s top priority this year. In the interview that aired on Vegas PBS this weekend, Reid, a gun rights supporter, struck a pragmatic tone on gun control measures. “Let’s be realistic. In the Senate, we’re going to do what we think can get through the House. And I’m not going to be going through...
  • Mark Levin Reacts To Obama Presser: "We Have An Imperial President"

    Real Clear Politics ^ | January 14, 2013 | Mark Levin
    MARK LEVIN: I'm not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there's a Constitution. Yes, he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations, but guess what? The Constitution wasn't up for election, it's not up for a referendum. He has to comply with it, too. He was sent back to Washington, but he's got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president. When he gets up there and starts saying, if Congress doesn't do this, I'm going to do this unilaterally, it violates separation of power a lot of the times....

    The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported. This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year. Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased. Some climate scientists dismissed the significance...
  • Colorado Democrats back in-state tuition break for illegal immigrants

    Longmont Daily Times-Call ^ | 01/14/2013 | Tim Hoover
    After two years of failing to pass a bill in Colorado that would have allowed illegal immigrants to pay tuition lower than out-of-state rates but higher than in-state rates, Democrats — now in control of both chambers — are pushing new legislation to allow the students to go to college at the in-state rate. "What we're looking at is a simpler, more equitable approach to tuition," said state Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, one of the lawmakers leading the effort. Johnston and state Rep. Crisanta Duran, D-Denver, are are holding a press conference Tuesday with supporters of the bill.
  • Hundreds of Thousands March in France (protest against homosexual marriage)

    TTH ^ | 1/14/2013
    TIBERGE at Galliawatch reports that close to one million people marched in protest against homosexual marriage rights in Paris yesterday. The numbers are not certain, but there is good reason to believe this estimate. The streets were clogged with people bearing signs and wearing shirts with symbols of the traditional family. Here we have an unprecedented declaration of mass resistance to homosexual rights. This means not only that there is a very good chance homosexual “marriage” and adoption rights will never become a reality in France, but that the principle of equality that governs so much of political discourse and...

    Coptic Christian churches in the United States say they are having to expand to cope with new arrivals, as priests in cities like Cairo and Alexandria talk of a new climate of fear and uncertainty. "Most of our people are afraid," Father Mina Adel, a priest at the Church of Two Saints in Alexandria said. "Not a few are leaving - for America, Canada and Australia. Dozens of families from this church alone are trying to go too." Father Mina's church has an important place in the history of the Arab Spring. It was struck by a car bomb on...
  • 24-year-old hopes to grow Walrus Subs into a chain

    The 24-year-old owner of Walrus Subs on Raccoon Road hopes it’s not just the giant walrus mascot or the oil painting of John Lennon greeting visitors at the door that keep people coming back. “I bought the dream,” said Alie Ruheim, Walrus Subs’ owner who also cooks, cleans, preps, opens and closes his shop. He takes orders by phone and in person, making sure to ask how the customer is doing, he said. “The biggest thing is treating people well,” Ruheim said. “Consistency is key.” He cooks the subs, cheesesteaks, gyros and other things on his menu, ranging from $5...

    Obama's EXECUTIVE ORDERS against guns are coming our way. The Obama régime is declaring a war on The Gun, and they want this war to be PERMANENT. They want the exception to become the norm. Forever. That’s why a hot war is inevitable. Article 1 of the Constitution establishes that "the Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, UNLESS when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it" -- but it does not specify which authority has the jurisdiction to decide on the exceptional suspension of the Constitution. Another passage of Article...

    A group of anti-Israel activists and journalists are engaged in a coordinated campaign to stifle criticism of controversial secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel by attacking the former Republican senator’s critics, according to emails obtained by the Free Beacon. Fenton communications chief executive officer David Fenton, the Atlantic’s national correspondent James Fallows, former diplomat Charles ‘Chas’ Freeman, Just Foreign Policy director Robert Naiman, and American Conservative founding editor Scott McConnell participated in a recent email exchange dedicated to silencing Hagel’s critics, the emails reveal. The emailers targeted recent comments made by Elliott Abrams, a former Bush administration National Security Council...

    Four illegal immigrants from the tiny European nation of Albanian are facing deportation after being caught near Brownsville. U.S. Border Patrol agents caught the four wading across the Rio Grande River in Brownsville on Wednesday. The four immigrants appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Felix Recio on Friday. Judge Recio sentenced them to time served but they are now facing deportation. The group makes up a total of 16 Albanian immigrants caught in Brownsville since late December. Border Patrol statistics show only 38 immigrants from the southeast European nation were arrested along the entire southwest border in 2011.

    A friend of mine from Pennsylvania called me today to tell me of her visit to a local WalMart, where she patronizes a bank located within this Walmart. It was Woodforest Bank. She slowly got incensed having to watch Candy Crowley on the omnipresent CNN,while waiting in line, and decided to do something about it. She started a conversation, which went on quite a while, with a trucker standing in front of her who as it turned out was a classic Low Information Voter, and kept trying to defend Obama,who he knew not surprisingly anything about. This got her more...

    Crains Detroit Business ^ | 12 Jan 2013 | Tom Henderson
    Real estate developer Rodney Lockwood Jr. agrees with Detroit politicians that Belle Isle is a jewel. A tarnished jewel he likes so much that he wants to put together an investor group to buy it for $1 billion, which is more than $1 million an acre for the 982-acre park in the middle of the Detroit River. And then he wants to polish it up with $20 billion in construction projects on the island, which would lead to another $20 billion in construction projects off the island and tens of thousands of temporary construction jobs and tens of thousands of...
  • Shale Gas Will Fuel a U.S. Manufacturing Boom

    MIT Technology Review ^ | January 9, 2013 | Kevin Bullis
    Chemical producers abandoned the U.S. in droves. Cheap natural gas is luring them back. People predicting a manufacturing renaissance in the United States usually imagine whirring robots or advanced factories turning out wind turbines and solar panels. The real American edge might be in something entirely more mundane: cheap starting materials for plastic bottles and plastic bags. The plummeting price of natural gas, which can be used to make a vast number of products, including tires, carpet, antifreeze, lubricants, cloth, and many types of plastic, is luring key industries to the United States. Just five years ago, natural gas prices...

    A teacher in Ohio is suing her school district for discrimination, saying it forced her to teach younger students despite her fear of children. Mariemont school district reassigned 61-year-old Maria C. Waltherr-Willard, a French teacher for 35 years, from high school to junior high school. The suit claims that the school district knew about Waltherr-Willard’s phobia of children, which she apparently has suffered from since the 1990s, and pressured her to resign. The fear of young children is real. It’s called pedophobia and has the following symptoms: terror, dread, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, nausea, dry-mouth and anxiety.

    List of IRS Forms that 1040 filers can begin filing in late February or early March 2013January 11, 2013 Late on January 1, 2013, Congress passed HR 8 (Tax Relief Extension Act) which extended almost all of the Federal tax provisions that had expired at the end of 2011 and 2012. The IRS announced on January 9th that they will not accept electronic or paper returns before January 30, 2013, a delay from the original January 22nd beginning date. This is necessary to allow them time to reprogram their systems to comply with the changes included in the Tax Relief...
