  • Inauguration Protesters Plan To Destroy Property And Disrupt Balls

    On the day of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration protesters are planning an anti-capitalist march, road blockades and disruptions to inauguration balls. The protests will likely include property destruction, a source with intimate knowledge of the protest plans told The Daily Caller Friday. The blockades are not limited to roads but will also be at every security checkpoint, the source said. The source added that the protesters blockading each checkpoint will represent a different liberal cause such as climate change or money in politics. A group called #DisruptJ20 is the most active in the planned protests for the inauguration.

    WASHINGTON – The extraordinarily large number of senior military officials being relieved of duty during the Obama administration – nine generals and flag officers this year alone and close to 200 senior officers over the last five years – is part of the creation of a “compliant officer class,” according to a U.S. Army intelligence official. Since WND’s ongoing coverage of what some top generals are openly calling a “purge” of senior military officers who run afoul of Obama or his agenda, some military personnel have been speaking out. According to a veteran Army intelligence official who spoke to WND...

"If Congress does not act then we will need a bailout, and it will be very expensive to U.S. taxpayers," he said.
  • NFL files appeal brief, says Brady “participated in a scheme to deflate game balls”

    If the #DeflateGate controversy has placed a chip on the shoulder of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the chip has just gotten a lot bigger. On the first page of the first written brief submitted by the NFL to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the NFL states that Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Brady for four games “after finding that Brady had participated in a scheme to deflate game balls to be used in a conference championship game.” “The scheme was aimed at gaining an unfair competitive advantage on the field,” the NFL contends, “and it was devised...
  • Carly Fiorina: Not Clear Trump is Republican

    08/16/2015 7:35:09 PM PDT · by NKP_Vet · 76 replies ^ | August 16, 2015 | Greg Richter
    Carly Fiorina is the only woman in the GOP presidential campaign field, and said she doesn't spend much time thinking about front-runner Donald Trump's comments about her, though she does wonder about his own Republican credentials. "It's not clear to me that Donald Trump is a Republican, first of all, based on his willingness to run a third-party bid," Fiorina said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." Trump is known to counter-attack anyone who criticizes him, and the former Hewlett-Packard CEO hasn't shied away from that. She likely boosted herself from the second-tier debate this month into the first tier in...

    You might not think that it’s appropriate for the government to launch a campaign telling men how to sit on the subway. Well guess what? You’re wrong. If you “manspread” on the subway (which, by the way, means to sit with your legs apart, in case you are a fixture of the patriarchy who doesn’t educate himself on important women’s issues), you are doing so much more than taking up space. Here’s what’s really going on with manspreading, as explained by some of the bright, forward-thinking minds on the Feminist Internet: 1. Manspreading is saying, “Who gives a f*** if...

    When FIFA World Cup's Chinese supplier Adidas failed to keep up with the demand of soccer balls in Rio de Janeiro, a Sialkot ball manufacturing company in Pakistan then stepped in and got the contract. The 159th-ranked football nation and a country known as a cricketing nation - Pakistan will be exporting the soccer balls for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Brazil. It was when he felt the roar of the crowd at the 2006 World Cup in Germany that Pakistani factory owner Khawaja Akhtar first dreamt up a goal of his own: to manufacture the ball for the...

    Such a case came about in 2012. The scenario was as follows. We received a request from a US-based company asking for our help in understanding some anomalous activity that they were witnessing in their VPN logs. This organization had been slowly moving toward a more telecommuting oriented workforce, and they had therefore started to allow their developers to work from home on certain days. In order to accomplish this, they’d set up a fairly standard VPN concentrator approximately two years prior to our receiving their call. In early May 2012, after reading the 2012 DBIR, their IT security department...

    A public school in Toronto has put a ban on most balls their kiddos toss around during recess because school administrators have deemed such projectiles dangerous. Well hello, wittle wussies. Hey, I’ve got an idea: Maybe we could get the overzealous Canadian ball-banner to take Holder’s job at the DOJ. Think about it. Given this Canuck’s proclivity toward protection I bet he’d make certain that thousands of AK-47s would not be purposefully given to Mexican drug cartels (which they could later use to kill our border agents). What’s that, you say? Dudley Do-Right can’t serve in the DOJ because he’s...

    TORONTO – A Toronto school is no longer allowing children to play with most balls during recess. Earl Beatty Public School sent a letter to student’s homes on Monday informing them of the decision to ban most balls from use on school grounds. According to the letter, over the past few weeks, there have been “a few serious incidents of parents, staff and students being hit by a hard ball or nearly being hit by a hard ball” in the schoolyard. There was no information as to injuries of people hit by hard balls. The students are still allowed to...

The German doctor comments: "That's nothing, in Germany we take part of the brain out of a person; we put it into another person's head, and in 4 weeks he is looking for work." A Russian doctor says: "That's nothing either. In Russia we take out half of the heart from a person; we put it into another person's chest, and in 2 weeks he is...

When he was a freshman, in 1968, the student body looked much like him: white, male, determinedly rural.... At A & M, Perry ran the winning campaign of his friend John Sharp for student-body president. In response, Sharp got his friend elected one of the campus’s five “yell leaders”—male cheerleaders. Perry considered being a yeller the higher office. A typical yell is: “Squads left! Squads right! / Farmers, farmers, we’re all right! / Load, ready, aim, fire, boom!”...
