    In a film shown tonight on the National Geographic Channel, it was shown that Jackie O. Kennedy wore high heels, possibly stiletto heels, when she visited the casket holding President John F Kennedy when viewed in the rotunda of the Capitol. Editors of Vogue Magazine were shocked at this display of insincerity.

    Are three cop killers on the loose in Lake County? Nearly a month has passed since the gunshot death of a northern Illinois police lieutenant shocked Americans coast to coast. Vivid accounts of the massive manhunt for three ostensible killers drove news accounts for days. The funeral of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz — "G.I. Joe" to many friends — attracted fellow officers from across the U.S. The wails of bagpipes, a trumpeting of taps and seven helicopters flying in a "V" formation bid him a final tribute. Unresolved then, as now, was the explanation of what led to the lieutenant's...

    The photocopies of the manual lay in heaps on the floor, in stacks that scaled one wall, like Xeroxed, stapled handouts for a class. Except that the students in this case were al-Qaida fighters in Mali. And the manual was a detailed guide, with diagrams and photographs, on how to use a weapon that particularly concerns the United States: A surface-to-air missile capable of taking down a commercial airplane.

    The New Republic ^ | August 31, 2012 | Amy Sullivan
    In the weeks since Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate, there has been a lot of talk about whether Ryan will face problems with Catholic voters over the fact that church leaders have repeatedly criticized his budget for its extreme cuts to social programs and “fail[ure] to meet moral criteria.” But there has been very little discussion about the much bigger problem Ryan poses for the U.S. Catholic bishops themselves, especially the man who offered the benediction Thursday night after Romney’s acceptance speech—Cardinal Timothy Dolan. Dolan is both the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and...
  • Tippi Hedren: ‘Hitchcock Was a Dangerous Deviant’

    Actress Tippi Hedren has exposed her “The Birds” and “Marnie” director Alfred Hitchcock as a “dangerous deviant” who “ruined” her career in a shocking new HBO panel discussion held to promote upcoming biopic “The Girl.” The actress, who is portrayed by Sienna Miller in the new film, held nothing back as she recalled the time she spent with the movie mogul behind some of Hollywood’s top thrillers. Hedren told film executives and fans, “We are dealing with a brain here that was an unusual genius, and evil, and deviant, almost to the point of dangerous, because of the effect that...

  • What Drives the Obama Doubters and Haters (Barf Alert)

    07/29/2012 6:35:34 AM PDT · by wolfman23601 · 26 replies
    There are Obama doubters and haters out there who claim with righteous anger that they are “vetting” the president, something they say the mainstream media never did. Some of them have said that my new biography — unwittingly, they argue, for I am too dumb to understand what my research has unearthed — proves that Barack Obama’s defining memoir is phony and that his entire life is a fraud. My intent is not to defend Obama or his book; he can take care of himself, and I have my own questions about “Dreams From My Father,” which I make clear...

As we discussed, neither of us is doing our shows to get rich quickly. Rather, we enjoy getting the information out. Our ultimate goal is to help you understand the current economic climate. It is truly astounding there's so many people strolling along life with absolutely no comprehension of where the economy and the world are heading. Today, YouTube/Google took down a Ron Paul channel for specious copyright infringement allegations. Google is the Federal Reserve of the internet.

    This is a vanity request instead of a news citation and I don't know if I'm posting amiss but I'm giving it my best guess on how to approach this. I had a stroke about eighteen months ago that left me partially paralyzed and mentally impaired also. I seem to have an OK ability to write though. My writing shortcomings though have led to this request for aid. I've lived a fairly unusual if not bizarre life that has given me an unusual Christian testimony. For years I felt constant prodding to share. I was hesitant to write it though,...

  • Oprah wants 'respect' for Obama

    Oprah called on President Obama's critics on Friday to “show some level of respect.” "I feel that everybody has a learning curve, and I feel that the reason why I was willing to step out for him was because I believed in his integrity and I believed in his heart," the influential TV host said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in Chicago. Of the negative mood of the country, Oprah added, “I think everybody complaining ought to try it for once.” She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that...

    This past week, Chairman Hu Jintao came to Washington, DC and was given a most lavish welcome by president Obama. This excerpt from an article outlines the stark contrast between two presidential receptions: The lavish black-tie dinner at the White House on Wednesday night contrasts with George Bush’s workmanlike lunch in 2006. According to Chinese media reports at the time, Hu, saw Bush’s arrangements as insulting. Bush was unwilling to host a state dinner in part because he was conscious of US public concern over China’s human rights record. The picture below also shows the Chinese flag at the same...

  • U.S. Fury at BP Stirs Backlash Among British

    LONDON — Spewing oil and alienating Americans with its chief executive’s impolitic remarks, BP may be Public Enemy No. 1 in the United States. But in Britain, where the company is a mainstay of the stock market and a favorite of pension funds, investors and politicians are becoming increasingly angry at the blistering attacks from across the Atlantic. BP’s share price, even after recovering some ground in New York trading on Thursday, has fallen more than 40 percent since the environmental catastrophe in April, and some analysts say the crisis could lead to the takeover or even the bankruptcy of...
