  • Hillary Clinton sets internet on fire with DNC appearance that was something out of the '1984' ad

    Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows with a somewhat surreal satellite appearance before the Democratic National Convention that drew parallels to Apples famous "1984" ad. Clinton appeared on a giant screen toward the end of artist Alicia Keys' appearance to thank delegates for formally selecting her as the Democratic Partys presidential nominee. When she appeared, the screen showed glass breaking to reveal Clinton, a nod to her status as the first female major-party presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton: "I can't wait to join you in Philadelphia" #DemsInPhilly CNN (@CNN) July 27, 2016 The moment instantly reminded many of the classic...

    Of America’s Founding Fathers, Ben Carson is most moved by Thomas Jefferson, partly because of the way he “tried to craft our Constitution,” the retired neurosurgeon said this weekend. In a Sunday interview on C-SPAN as part of its “Road to the White House” series, Carson said he was “impressed by a lot of them,” referring to the Founding Fathers.

    Before my fellow conservatives jump immediately to defend Candidate Carson, I would ask that they read the following short column. Some years ago, I became aware of the extraordinary and remarkable career of Dr. Benjamin Carson via the 2009 movie "Gifted Hands" ,a film in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. portrayed the doctor. I even talked about him to my friend and colleague Laurie Roth who, subsequently, interviewed him on her Radio show. Dr. Carson seemed to be an honorable man, conservative and true to his word. However, since he officially began his campaign for the position of POTUS, something appears...

    Last week, I wrote in this column that Dr. Ben Carson, a leading Republican candidate for the presidency, was an "American hero." I pronounced him thus even as the roof was falling in on his candidacy. Or was it? His numbers in the polls have held up. As the hullabaloo grew in the media, millions of dollars poured into his campaign from supporters all over the country. A week after it all began, the Carson campaign still appears formidable. Is his campaign really in trouble or has the crafty neurosurgeon-turned-presidential-candidate hit upon yet another tactic to win the election? Is...

As PJ Media reported earlier, Trump recently went off on Carson during a campaign event in Iowa. The billionaire businessman smeared Carson, comparing him to child molesters and declaring he’s unfit to be president because he had violent impulses as a teenager. He even went so far as to blast Carson’s religiosity, basically saying it’s all a lie to swoon Iowa voters:...
  • Carson Would Use ‘Things They Don’t Know About Resources’ on Terrorists

    ORLANDO — Ben Carson stumbled Friday evening while responding to a question about how he would respond to the terror attacks in Paris if he were president. Carson said he would employ "things that they don't know about resources" against terrorists, but struggled to specify what an American response under his leadership might look like. "I would be working with our allies, using every resource known to man: in terms of economic resources, in terms of covert resources… military resources… things-that-they-don't-know-about resources… not to contain them, but to eliminate them, before they eliminate us," Carson told reporters at the Sunshine...

After White House officials, including National Security Advisor Susan Rice, said Carson's claim was untrue, the GOP presidential candidate said that he had better information than the White House did.

His statement came in response to a question asked during a live half-hour telephone town hall meeting: "How practically and quickly can we get a wall that's effective?" one man asked, adding with great emphasis that "time is not on our side." Carson paused for moment, as if considering the logistics of constructing a 2,000-mile wall, before answering: "I think it can be done in a less than a year," he replied...

    Wednesday on the “Simon Conway Show,” Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said the United States should establish a no-fly zone at the Turkish-Syrian border and shoot down any Russian plane that enters it. Carson said, “If they do come into that area—after you have given them adequate warning, after we’ve talked to Putin—you shoot them down. Absolutely.” he added, “Whatever happens next, we deal with it. But we can’t continue backing down because in the long run, that will hurt us.”

    Ben Carson's woe-is-me whining about media scrutiny is more than just a sorry spectacle. It shows the extent to which a culture of victimization has infected the conservative movement. "There's no question I'm getting special scrutiny, because there are lot of people who are very threatened,” Carson said in a "Face the Nation" interview Sunday. "The whole point is to distract, distract the populace, distract me." That’s rich, given how Carson’s own mouth has proved to be such a powerful weapon of mass distraction. His "personal theory" that the pyramids of Egypt were built by the biblical patriarch Joseph as...

    Another nice catch by Andrew Kaczynski and BuzzFeed to go with the old clipping of Carson’s mother telling a newspaper in 1997 that the stabbing incident most certainly happened. Nothing’s going to prove that definitively, but knowing for a fact that Carson was telling this story before he had any reason to (when he had every professional reason not to) is the next best thing. And every time one of Carson’s biographical anecdotes is tested and checks out upon close scrutiny, the impulse to believe him among those who are already well disposed to him and see him as...

What else are candidates doing than trying to convince voters that they have the best ideas, the most ambitiously pragmatic solutions for the country's ills and, of course, the right combination of character, experience and other attributes to do the job well? And when it comes to advertising, social programming (or, if you prefer, stereotypes) and the human id are major parts of what makes consumers believe firmly...

And that only begs the next obvious question: Why not gay brothers or gay sisters? As reported in the Irish Times, Independent Senator David Norris, himself gay, has said that gay cousins should be allowed to marry each other following the same-sex marriage referendum.

Cheok researches the hardware side from an engineering view, looking at multi-modal interfaces including communication by touch, taste, and smell.

    Ruling in what it called a "tragically bizarre" case, an appeals court found that the estate of a man killed by a train while crossing the Edgebrook [Illinois] Metra station tracks can be held liable after a part of his body sent airborne by the collision struck and injured a bystander. In 2008, Hiroyuki Joho, 18, was hurrying in pouring rain with an umbrella over his head, trying to catch an inbound Metra train due to arrive in about five minutes when he was struck by a southbound Amtrak train traveling more than 70 mph. A large portion of his...

    It was the first time the competition was conducted in San Francisco and there was bone-chilling water temperatures along with the usual Bay area wind. But just as surfer Dusty Payne of Hawaii braved the cold to ride a wave, a SHARK (flash scary shark with loud music or sound effect) appeared in the water and SCARED THE DAYLIGHTS out of Dusy who described the sight as quote, "the biggest fin I've ever seen in my life coming at me. I've seen dolphins and it wasn't a dolphin." unquote. So, not only did Dusty lose it, but he also lost...

    A Metropolitan Police Department officer accused of drunkenly opening fire on a car full of people that included transgenders will be held without bond as he awaits trial. It sounds like hes a dangerous person, said Jeffrey Light, an attorney with D.C. Trans Coalition. Im not convinced that just because hes a police officer hes not going to do it again. D.C. Superior Court Judge Ann O'Regan Keary on Friday ordered Officer Kenneth D. Furr held without bond. He faces one charge of assault with a dangerous weapon stemming from an Aug. 26 shooting that occurred while the officer was...

    'It felt like I had the bends, like in diving. I had no choice but just to lay there, blowing up like a balloon' When he became a lorry driver, Steven McCormack probably felt he could handle the stresses of the job. But the 48-year-old New Zealander couldn't have anticipated quite what sort of pressure he would have to endure. Mr McCormack was blown up like a balloon after falling on to a compressed air tube in a freak accident. The end of the tube pierced the flesh of his left buttock, forcing compressed air at the rate of 100...

    ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) Some public school parents in Edgewater, Florida, want a first-grade girl with life-threatening peanut allergies removed from the classroom and home-schooled, rather than deal with special rules to protect her health, a school official said. "That was one of the suggestions that kept coming forward from parents, to have her home-schooled. But we're required by federal law to provide accommodations. That's just not even an option for us," said Nancy Wait, spokeswoman for the Volusia County School District. Wait said the 6-year-old's peanut allergy is so severe it is considered a disability under the Americans with...

    Well it is the weekend of spooks, goblins, ghosts, and freaks. But some of the news coming out of the world around us seems to make me wonder if there are gremlins afoot on All Hallows Eve? A judge has ruled that four year olds can be sued. An 87 year old crack dealer is sentenced to prison. An 84 year old lady drives up the wrong way causing accidents on I-95. But this is not all. A man in England died of a caffeine overdose. A beheading of in Arizona is believed to be tied to the Mexican drug...
