  • Hillary: ISIS ‘Showing Videos of Donald Trump Insulting Islam’ as Recruitment Tool

    Hillary: ISIS 'Showing Videos of Donald Trump Insulting Islam' as Recruitment Tool Charles C. W. Cooke ISIS is using video clips of Donald Trump “insulting Islam” to recruit terrorists, Hillary Clinton claimed tonight in the third Democratic debate. “He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter.” Here’s her full comment: And we also need to make sure that the really discriminatory messages that Trump is sending around the world don’t fall on receptive ears. He is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter. They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists. I...

  • A godless nation: Doomed to fail (Mychal Massie says U.S. trusts handouts of man over hand of God)

    WND ^ | December 03, 2012 | Mychal Massie
    The truth is a hard thing to hear and even a more bitter pill to swallow. But until we face the truth, we are doomed to sink lower into the abyss as a society. The truth is that a godless nation is a nation doomed to fall. We as a nation have slowly accepted and pompously come to believe that wisdom begins and stems from us. Secularism is the view that all things religious should be excluded from daily public living, specifically pertaining to political and social concerns. Thanks to secularism, the mindset today is that God and religious opinion...
  • Stratosphere Targets Deep Sea to Shape Climate

    North Atlantic Achilles Heel Lets Upper Atmosphere Affect the AbyssSept. 23, 2012 A University of Utah study suggests something amazing: Periodic changes in winds 15 to 30 miles high in the stratosphere influence the seas by striking a vulnerable Achilles heel in the North Atlantic and changing mile-deep ocean circulation patterns, which in turn affect Earths climate. We found evidence that what happens in the stratosphere matters for the ocean circulation and therefore for climate, says Thomas Reichler, senior author of the study published online Sunday, Sept. 23 in the journal Nature Geoscience. Scientists already knew that events in...

    BBC ^ | 22 February 2012 | Written by Rebecca Morelle.
    The race is on to reach the deepest place in the ocean: the Mariana Trench, which plunges 11km (7 miles) down. Fifty years after it was first conquered, four teams are vying to return. It will be an epic journey that will push submersible technology to its limits and put the lives of those piloting the vessels at grave risk. Each team has a unique approach, but over the course of the next year only one will be crowned the winner in this journey beyond the abyss.
  • Bill expanding local tax authority is step toward fiscal abyss

    Contra Costa Times ^ | 6/4/11 | Contra Costa Times editorial
    CALIFORNIA'S system of state and local taxation is overly complex and often dysfunctional. Instead of devising reforms to improve the way governments raise revenues, state Senate leader Darrell Steinberg has come up with legislation that would make taxation decidedly more complicated, unfair and costly for Californians. His Senate Bill 653 would vastly expand the taxing authority of California's 58 counties, county school districts and community college districts in the state. If SB 653 becomes law, counties and school districts would be allowed to impose a local personal income tax up to 1 percent of state taxable income. The bill authorizes...

    One-Sided Capitalism Dictator Hu's visit brings to mind an important contradiction that needs some very serious mental ruminations. On the one hand, we have a communist country that is showing dramatic economic success and on the other, we have a capitalist country falling into an abyss of debt and pleading for the commies to bail them out from an economic cataclysm. The most inefficient and evil system out-performing the most efficient and morally good system demands an explanation...and here it is: We have long ago forsaken capitalism in favor of a system that is so bad and so inefficient that...

    (click on image to enlarge) The original sculpture, (above) the "Il Cristo degli Abissi", is in the Mediterranean sea off San Fruttuoso between Camogli and Portofino on the Italian Riviera. It was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 meters depth, and stands 2.5 meters (8.5 feet) tall. Professor Guido Galletti cast the original from the inspiration of the first Italian to use SCUBA gear, swimmer/diver Duilo Merchant. Galletti wanted a symbol to inspire all who explored and loved the sea in 1954. In 1961. (click on any images above to enlarge it) In this video...
