    BBC ^ | 11/24/2017
    On Wednesday the navy received a US report of a loud noise - called a "hydro-acoustic anomaly" - detected hours after the submarine went missing. The navy knew only the location of the suspected explosion, not its cause, Captain Baldi said, and search efforts would be concentrated in the area. The ARA San Juan was returning from a routine mission to Ushuaia, near the southernmost tip of South America, when it reported an "electrical breakdown". ... Brazil, Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, Russia, Peru, South Africa, Uruguay and the UK are among the countries that have sent either ships or planes...

    The Democrats are in a tough bind. Yes, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has been hit with horrendous allegations of sexual molestation and abuse. Yet, it’s hard for Democrats to play holier than thou given how they treated Bill Clinton’s accusers. Moreover, given that there’s been an epiphany from some on the Left that they were just terrible people during the Clinton presidency, it’s also hard to cast aspersions on the voters of Alabama who are going to vote for Roy Moore next month. Guy exposed that yesterday debating this subject with Democratic operative Zac Petkanas on Fox. Guy...

    The Met police have confirmed they received reports of shots fired on Oxford Street this afternoon, as they were called to an incident at 16:38. The Met added that officers were responding "as if the incident is terrorist related". "At this stage police have not located any casualties," the statement said. Oxford Street Underground station has been evacuated, according to the British Transport Police, with reports on Twitter of shoppers on Oxford Street running for cover.
  • Al Franken’s Newest Excuse For Groping Allegations: ‘I Hug People’

    Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken’s latest excuse for the groping allegations against him is that he is a “warm person” who likes to “hug people.” Four women have now come forward to accuse Franken of groping their butts or breasts. One of the women, Leeann Tweeden, also accused Franken of forcibly kissing her while rehearsing a skit on a USO trip in 2006. Franken released a Thanksgiving Day statement in which he attempted to downplay the allegations against him, while adding that he respects the “feelings” of his accusers.

    The sexual misconduct reckoning that's sweeping the nation does cross party lines and political persuasions. Republicans and Democrats are in the crosshairs. Liberal media figures have also fallen. Yet, the Left is still engaging in the Bill Clinton protocol, circling the wagons and trying to downplay the accusations. Right now, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has four women, two of which wish to remain anonymous, alleging that he groped them. Leeann Tweeden who fired the first salvo also said that Franken forcibly kissed her during a 2006 USO tour in the Middle East. The other Democrat in the news is Rep....

    Addressing Harare's packed 60,000-capacity National Sports Stadium, the new leader said Zimbabwe was now "ready and willing for a steady re-engagement with all the nations of the world". He said "key choices will have to be made to attract foreign direct investment to tackle high-levels of unemployment while transforming our economy". And pledging a "new destiny" for Zimbabwe, he added: "Let us humbly appeal to all of us that we let bygones be bygones." Mr Mnangagwa - who had fled the country earlier this month only to return to a hero's welcome on Wednesday - also said that: Mr Mugabe's...

    Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's team of lawyers will no longer be working with Trump's defense team during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling. They had been sharing information up until this point.That may mean, The New York Times muses, that Flynn's team is cooperating with the Mueller investigation. The only reason for the split would be a conflict of interest.The Times reportedly has four sources to confirm the split. If true and Flynn is cooperating with Mueller, it could result in a much more scrutinized look into the Trump campaign. A deal with Mr. Flynn would...

    To recap, when `Oumuamua was first observed on October 19th, 2017, by astronomers using the University of Hawaii’s Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS), the object (then known as C/2017 U1) was initially believed to be a comet. However, subsequent observations revealed that it was actually an asteroid and it was renamed 1I/2017 U1 (or 1I/`Oumuamua). Follow-up observations made using the ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) were able to place constraints on the asteroid’s size, brightness, composition, color and orbit. These revealed that `Oumuamua measured some 400 meters (1312 feet) long, is very elongated, and spins on its axis...
  • Quin Hillyer: Sessions puts a stop to Department of Justice’s bullish abuse of power

    Yellow Hammer News ^ | Nov. 24, 2017 | QUIN HILLYER
    Yes, Jeff Sessions really is making a difference at the Justice Department, as a new order curbing the department’s own power makes clear. The other day, a friend said to me that he figured Sessions really would be better off accepting a write-in bid for his old Senate seat because “he’s not really doing anything as Attorney General anyway. I haven’t seen any big successes there.” I beg to differ. I’ve covered the Department of Justice (DoJ) quite closely for more than 20 years, and have seen that much of what gets done there – especially the bad stuff –...

    Breitbart ^ | November 24, 2017
    Overhauling welfare was one of the defining goals of Bill Clinton’s presidency, starting with a campaign promise to "end welfare as we know it," continuing with a bitter policy fight and producing change that remains hotly debated 20 years later. Now, President Donald Trump wants to put his stamp on the welfare system, apparently in favor of a more restrictive policy. He says "people are taking advantage of the system." Trump, who has been signaling interest in the issue for some time, said this past week that he wants to tackle the issue after the tax overhaul he is seeking...

    From what we've seen over the years, it's not clear what skills (outside of government) Rep. John Conyers has to offer that would warrant a $174,000 yearly salary and perks and that just may be why his lawyer is not-so-subtlety warning the House of Representatives to back off or else. The fact this statement from attorney Arnold E. Reed was released via Tweet from Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times "reporter covering Congress, race & social justice issues", we have a good idea where this could be headed.

    At least 235 people were killed and another 109 injured in an attack on a Sufi mosque in Egypt's North Sinai region on Friday, Egyptian state-run media reported, in what appears to be the deadliest terror attack on Egyptian soil. After at least two explosions, gunmen who were waiting outside the mosque opened fire at worshipers as they fled Friday prayers, state-owned Ahram Online said. The attack targeted al Rawdah mosque, situated in the village of al Rawdah between Bir al-Abed and the city of al-Arish.

    A South African court has increased Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius's jail sentence for killing his girlfriend to 13 years and five months. Prosecutors had argued that the six-year term for murdering Reeva Steenkamp was "shockingly light". *snip* The Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein has now given Pistorius the minimum 15 years prescribed for murder in South Africa, less time already served.

    The Coach's Team ^ | 11/24/17 | Jim Bray
    One of the most popular ground cannabis vapourizers - though definitely not the most affordable - has received a serious upgrade, one that's well worth a view. And if the Arizer's too rich for you, Vie has unleashed a much different and less expensive model it thinks should be, well, high on your shopping list. It's always nice to have choices! With medical marijuana all the rage and legal marijuana on the Canadian horizon, it seems that it's more a matter of "when" the stuff will become mainstream, rather than "if." But there are still the issues of smoke, second...

    Guns in the News ^ | 11-24-2017 | Tim Brown
    Last week, Richard Pollock reported on the fact that the Obama administration rarely prosecuted convicted felons who lied on their forms to obtain guns.  Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is ordering a review of the FBI gun database to see why potential buyers are not being stopped. All of this is coming after Texas gunman Devin Patrick Kelley, who killed nearly 30 people and wounded another two dozen in a church shooting earlier this month, was able to purchase four guns despite the FBI.  More of my thoughts on all of this follow the rest of the report. CBS reports: The...

    I’ve enjoyed Thanksgiving as an American living in Ohio, North Carolina and New York. And now I enjoy living in Australia – a wonderful place except … Aussies don’t celebrate the wonderful holiday. This is quite understandable, given that Australia is a place far, far away – where back in the 1600s there were plenty of kangaroos, but neither Native Americans nor Pilgrims. What do you think of when you smell apple cinnamon and pumpkin spice? It’s something we don’t even have to think about as Americans, right? The holiday season, of course I’m willing to bet you’re getting a...
