    Occupy Oakland has finally found their candidate, who arguably has the same intelligence as them: a dog. Called "Einstein," Occupy Oakland released a pun-laden announcement in February declaring the dog's intent to run for office. As the group of ultra-liberals explained, "Einstein has thrown his collar in the ring, his leash in the pond, and his id chip in the circular file. Yes, Occupy Oakland’s unofficial official non-human with personhood status has announced, on the steps of City Hall, that he will be a candidate in Oakland’s mayoral race for 2014... ANOTHER OAKLAND IS POSSIBLE!" Eight months since then, the...

    Liberian authorities say they plan to prosecute the man infected with Ebola who brought the disease to the United States, saying he lied on his airport health questionnaire. With an Ebola crisis raging in West Africa, passengers leaving Liberia are being screened for fever and are asked if they have had contact with anyone infected. On the questionnaire obtained by The Associated Press, Thomas Eric Duncan answered 'no' to those questions. Neighbors say Duncan had helped a sick pregnant woman who later died of the disease. Her illness at the time was believed to be pregnancy-related. Binyah Kesselly, chairman of...

    Obama was heard to remark during a recent presidential golf game, "Israel is a terrorist war criminal. It won't even yield to my reasonable demands for a two state solution with my beloved Palestinians, whose children and other innocent civilians it relishes murdering. However, Iraq, Syria, ISIL, etc. are humanitarians and will recognize that I am like them, as I lead them to peace through the Light of My true wisdom and greatness." His best plan yet! Obama functions at His very best with no intelligence. Intelligence would imperil His domestic and foreign priorities and perhaps even His brilliant world view. I don’t think the problem is Obama’s inattentiveness. It’s not the...
  • Obama's Loose Lips

    American Thinker ^ | October 2, 2014 | Ed Lasky
    The World War Two-era motto “Loose lips sink ships” was meant to save lives and prevent harm to America. It is also an admonition that Barack Obama, Commander-in-Chief, has been wilfully contravening for years when it comes to America’s overseas opponents. Ever since he became President Barack Obama has worked to weaken America’s posture toward our adversaries. Some of these have been obvious: eviscerating American armed forces, betraying ally relationships built up over decades, and empowering foes such as Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. Others have flown under the radar screen but, like the diminishing fleet of stealth fighters in...

    Monrovia – Relief is on the way for travelers out of Liberia and Sierra Leone looking to book a flight to neighboring Ghana, Nigeria and other neighboring states. FrontPageAfrica has learned that the East African airliner, Kenyan Airways is poised to be the second airline to resume flights to Ebola-stricken Liberia. The airline has penciled in October 24th, 2014 as its tentative date for the resumption of flights to Liberia, Airport Authority sources confirmed Tuesday. The travel ban and cancellations are unnecessary because the risk of a passenger carrying Ebola is extremely low, according to the WHO and other experts....

  • Officials: 'Control order' given to Ebola-stricken man's family because they left home

    DALLAS -- Health officials say the family of a Liberian man diagnosed with Ebola while visiting them in Dallas left their home, and that's why a "control order" was put in place to keep them inside. Family members of Thomas Eric Duncan were ordered Wednesday night to stay home or face criminal charges. Four to five people, who are not showing symptoms of the deadly disease at this time, were put under the quarantine by Texas health officials. The group is not allowed to leave their home in Dallas and cannot visit with anyone outside the home, the State Health...

    America has now recorded its first confirmed case of the deadly Ebola virus, brought to this country by a traveler who arrived unscreened from the African country of Liberia, a known Ebola hotspot. Thomas Eric Duncan traveled from Liberia, to Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C. and then on to Dallas, Texas where he began to present symptoms of the deadly disease. Liberia is one of the hotspots in a large outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, with 3,458 cases and 1,830 deaths as of September 23, according to the World Health Organization.

    A white lesbian mother is suing a Chicago sperm bank after she claims she was mistakenly sent a black man's sperm and gave birth to a mixed-race daughter. Jennifer Cramblett, 36, claims the mistake has caused her stress and anguish because her family is racist and she lives in a small, all-white Uniontown in northeast Ohio. In a lawsuit filed this week in Cook County, Illinois, Ms Cramblett says Midwest Sperm Bank sent her several vials of a black man's sperm by mistake because the clinic keeps paper records and accidentally transposed numbers on her order.

Reno tailor Jacob Davis created riveted denim jeans in 1871 in a downtown shop. Two years later, he and Levi Strauss & Co. patented the pants with the rivets to the corners and pockets that made them the sturdy favorites of miners, loggers and cowboys who helped tame the West. The “Blue Genes Jam” next Oct. 2-4 will celebrate the iconic trousers’ impact on popular culture with concerts, fashion shows,...

A Panels poll broadcast on the Knesset Channel found that only 27 percent of Israelis consider Abbas a worthy partner for peace talks. Sixty-three percent said he was not a worthy partner. Asked whether they trusted Obama to manage US policy in the Middle East, 74% said not and 21% said yes. Only 25% said they would characterize the president as a "true friend...

The plot is centered on the mathematical model created by Professor Hari Seldon–one that can scientifically predict the history of our galaxy.

Barack Obama is not a mathematician and he may not even be a reader of science fiction, but he is a believer in psychohistory.

    To judge by media coverage, the legalization of same-sex marriage is an unalloyed good. Pictures of happy couples kissing and otherwise celebrating leave the impression that the only people who are unhappy about all of this are bigots and grumps. Well, Janna Darnelle would beg to differ. Seven years ago, Darnelle's husband of ten years told her that he was gay and that he wanted a divorce. As she wrote in The Public Discourse, "In an instant, the world that I had known and loved—the life we had built together—was shattered." She tried to persuade him to stay, and work...

His Republican governor agreed to expand Medicaid coverage, as permitted under the Obamacare law, and he finds that a deep betrayal. I can’t argue with that. If the issue of expanding Medicaid is your line in the sand – and there are good reasons for that! – then you have every right in the world to say, “I can’t vote...

    When government employees buy the California legislature with huge campaign contributions, one of the benefits they expect in return is absolute protection of the lush pensions they are promised, even when their employer goes into bankruptcy. Thus, California law insists that Calpers, the state-backed agency used to provide many government employees with their pensions, is granted very special powers, including the right to seize assets and liquidate them to provide for full payment of pensions, even when other creditors are paid a penny on the dollar.But yesterday, a federal bankruptcy judge in California issued a preliminary ruling indicating that once...

    Orders to U.S. factories fell in August by the largest amount on record, but the drop was heavily weighed by an expected plunge in volatile aircraft orders. A key category that tracks business investment plans posted a small increase, offering an encouraging sign that factory production will sustain momentum in the second half of this year. Orders declined 10.1 percent in August after a record increase of 10.5 percent in July, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Both months were affected by swings in demand for commercial aircraft, which soared in July only to plummet in August.

Speaking at length for the first time O’Keefe, a director of the conservative Wisconsin Club for Growth, tells Wisconsin Reporter he was shocked by the prosecutors’ tactics: predawn, paramilitary-style raids on the homes of conservatives, and the confiscation of their papers and electronic equipment. “We ran a meticulous political operation; not only did we comply with Wisconsin’s laws — we were...

    As a top official tasked with guarding Russia's supreme law, the head of the country's Constitutional Court has some surprising things to say about serfdom. In a long article on the history of legal reforms published in the government daily "Rossiiskaya gazeta," longtime Constitutional Court head Valery Zorkin describes serfdom as the "staple" that held Russian society together. Its abolition by Tsar Alexander II in 1861 "destroyed the already greatly weakened connection between the two basic social classes of the nation -- the nobility and the peasantry," Zorkin wrote recently. "Despite all the liabilities of serfdom, it was precisely what...

    When a man jumped over the White House fence, ran across the lawn and entered the residence, the Secret Service failed and failed again. One of the most conspicuous and surprising failures was that though it had armed agents on the ground and snipers on the roof, no one fired a shot to stop him. In fact, the agency bragged about not using their guns, saying that "the officers showed tremendous restraint and discipline in dealing with this subject." The agents didn't shoot Omar Gonzalez because they "apparently concluded that he was not armed and did not appear to be...

    Sixteen Darth Vaders have made an imperial march onto the ballot in Ukraine’s upcoming parliamentary elections, the latest and most expansive appearance of the “Star Wars” villain’s name and likeness in the country’s political life. All have been registered by Ukraine’s Central Election Commission for the October 26 ballot, a snap election announced by President Petro Poroshenko in August. Seven of the "Darth Vaders" are with the Internet Party of Ukraine, which advocates technological improvements to eliminate bureaucracy, while the other five are running as independents. Ukrainian political activists have used the “Dark Lord” of the legendary science-fiction series in...

    Casper, WY - Young children in Wyoming are not allowed to speak their first language of English in the classroom. Officials said it's part of a new program designed to help them speak Spanish. It's the first program of its kind in Wyoming's history. The students, whom are ages 5 and 6, speak English for half the day, then switch for the other half.
