    Saudi security forces foiled a terror plot targeting the Grand Mosque in the Muslim holy city of Mecca after a suspect blew himself up after a gunfight. Saudi Arabia's Interior Ministry said security forces exchanged gunfire with one of the suspects who blew himself up inside a home he was hiding in yesterday. Five people, including a woman, were arrested in security operations in Mecca, the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news website said, citing the security spokesman of the Saudi Interior Ministry, Mansour al-Turki.Full Title...............................Attack on Grand Mosque in Mecca is foiled as suspect blows himself up after a gunfight with Saudi...
  • Did Woodrow Wilson read James Madison's debate notes?

    This is fully conjecture, but I'm convinced that the answer is yes. During the time in which Wilson was inventing the concept of the "living and breathing constitution", Wilson made the following observations: (Constitutional Government, page 55) The government of the United States was constructed upon the Whig theory of political dynamics, which was a sort of unconscious copy of the Newtonian theory of the universe [see: Newtonian government]. In our own day, whenever we discuss the structure or development of anything, whether in nature or in society, we consciously or unconsciously follow Darwin; but before Darwin, they followed Newton....

    According to author and music historian Ralph Denyer in 1982's The Guitar Handbook, Eric Clapton's 1975 solo album There's One in Every Crowd, until his record company worried that not everyone would get the joke, was originally going to be titled "The Best Guitarist in the World...There's One in Every Crowd." And sometimes there's a lot of them, when it comes to the crowd that gathers every May at the annual Dallas International Guitar Festival. As co-founder Jimmy Wallace explained to me in our 2015 podcast interview, the Dallas International Guitar Festival pioneered the modern concept of the weekend guitar...

    If Kanye West follows through on his presidential ambitions, his wife, Kim Kardashian, will be ready: She just became the proud owner of Jackie Kennedy’s Cartier watch. The couple bought it at auction in New York, for a stratospheric $379,500, TMZ reports... Kennedy had been given the watch by her brother-in-law Prince Stanislaw Radziwill, according to the gossip site. It’s engraved with the date February 23, 1963, and commemorates a hike the prince participated in to support President Kennedy’s goal of making Americans healthier.

    A brand new PEW Research Center survey last week shows that gun ownership by households is up to 42 percent — an increase of 5 percentage points in the past four years. Yet, few mainstream media outlets announced the increase. In fact, the media goes out of its way to find polls claiming that Americans are turning away from guns. In my book, "War on Guns" the impression, the impression given by the media is that gun owners are a small, fringe group. Maybe they are hoping that this will have an impact on policy. As General Social Survey director...

    Fake News King CNN should be apologizing to the American population who voted for President Trump, not just to the guy the media dubbed as "Mooch" An early morning Tweet posted by Anthony Scaramucci, an adviser to Trump during the presidential campaign and a member of his transition team’s executive committee, after CNN removed from its website, scrubbing all links from its social media accounts, a story involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump: @CNN did the right thing. Classy move. Apology accepted. Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on.
  • Firearms Merchant Files Class Action Lawsuit Against PayPal And Other Payment Processors

    Blair Gladwin, owner of the California based Gladwin Guns and Ammo, filed three class action lawsuits last week against online payment processors PayPal, Stripe, and Square for singling out him and other firearms businesses. The payment companies required Gladwin and the other owners to reveal the nature of their dealings — after which the payment companies refused to work with them. Gladwin claims this type of discrimination is a violation of California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act Sections 51, 52(a) and 52(c), a law that protects federally-licensed gun stores from such refusals of business transactions. The class action lawsuits, according to...

    A mysterious circular rock formation on the surface of Mars has been captured by one of NASA's Orbiters. The formation was photographed by the Curiosity Rover this week and has excited alien hunters who invited speculation over how it came to be online. They suggested that the rocks were 'arranged', laid out by another form of life, or that it was part of a larger, buried structure which has never before been seen.

    Around 1 percent of female adolescents have anorexia. Think about that… one out of every one hundred young women are starving themselves, sometimes to death! Should we celebrate these poor young women and help further their mental issues by agreeing they are fat and need to lose weight? Should we assist them in their various methods of self-destruction? Should we have our public schools celebrate, embrace, and reinforce their mental disorder? Perhaps install fun-house type mirrors which add weight to their reflections to help them connect with their perceived body condition? I think most would agree these would be ghoulish...

  • WaPo: Obama Knew Of Russian Meddling; Did He Drop The Ball?

    06/24/2017 8:18:00 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | June 24, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    The Washington Post had a lengthy piece about the Obama White HouseÂ’s behind-the-scenes activities to combat the Russian meddling during the 2016 election. First, they knew about the meddling far in advance. Second, they seem to have fallen into the same decision-making process they exhibited over Syria: paralysis by analysis. There was always the fear that it would look too political. That actually mentioning the meddling might force Russian President Vladimir Putin to do something more damaging in response. Putin reportedly ordered an interference campaign, according to a highly confident assessment by our intelligence community (via WaPo):Early last August, an...

    Parliament has been hit by a cyber attack that has left MPs unable to access their emails if not in Westminster. MPs were alerted to the hack on Friday night and have reported problems getting into their email accounts on Saturday. The attack comes just days after reports that passwords of ministers were being flogged online after hacking groups managed to gain access. The parliamentary authorities are working with the National Cyber Security Centre to protect the network and ascertain the scale of the damage.

    Venezuela, one of the most curious recent cases in Vatican diplomacy, continues to grow more curious still. The visit two weeks ago to Rome of the leading bishops of Venezuela may well have been unprecedented, a highly public visit aimed at, apparently, clarifying that the pope was on their side, and not that of Venezuela’s dictator, Nicolás Maduro.The address of Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the Holy See’s representative at the United Nations, on Tuesday at a meeting of the Organization of American States in Mexico, reiterated the need for free elections in Venezuela, presumably so that the people can throw out...

    Kathryn Volk and Renu Malhotra at the University of Arizona have noticed some strange movement out in the Kuiper belt…movement that they believe could suggest the existence of a tenth planet. ... Objects in the Kuiper belt are far enough away from the other major bodies in our solar system that the gravitational influence of the large planets doesn’t impact them (at least, not to a measurable degree); however, their movements can still be predicted, thanks to sky surveys and a host of advanced technologies. The search for Planet Nine has lead scientists to believe that it is orbiting around...

    If Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has anything to say about it, his officers will shine at the head of the city's Pride Parade. The department's new "Pride Car" is ready to go. It's gassed up. Rainbow decals gleam from every side, saluting Houston's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Acevedo plans to be front and center Saturday and he's strongly encouraged his top leadership to join him in the march. "By actually participating ... we send a very powerful message that we're an inclusive department," he said, "where every segment of society is welcome, is respected, and will be...

    Two of the Pentagon's specially reinforced "Doomsday" planes, designed to withstand the heat from a nuclear blast, were grounded after being damaged by a tornado, the Air Force said Friday. The E4-B Boeing 747s, built in the 1970s during the Cold War, are essentially flying command centers that can refuel in the sky and are designed to remain airborne for days on end in times of crisis. The Air Force has four E4-Bs, which also shuttle the secretary of defense around the world. Two were damaged June 16 at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska when a tornado whipped through the...

    For the debut of his MSNBC show this morning, Hugh Hewitt scored the first news network interview with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Debunking an assertion made by some, Pompeo said he couldn’t “imagine a statement that is anymore false” than the notion that Trump isn’t interested in intel. Pompeo stated that he personally meets with Trump for 35-40 minutes virtually every day, that Trump is an “avid consumer” of intel, and asks great questions. View the video here.

    On June 19, Iran Launched 7 medium-range ballistic missiles targeting ISIS in Syria. The same day a US Navy Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22. On June 20, a USAF F-15E blasted Iranian Shahed-129 armed drone out of the sky. The drone was shot down as it advanced toward the coalition-backed rebel outpost of At Tanf, near the southern Syrian border. In addition, Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, in a speech, harshly attacked the US and posted hostile tweets. “That US arms a terrorist group is what causes instability. Who created #ISIS? The US!... That the US joined the anti-ISIS...
