  • Greenpeace Leaks U.S.-E.U. Trade Deal Documents

    NYT ^ | 5/2/2016 | sewell chan
    LONDON — The Dutch chapter of the environmental activist group Greenpeace leaked on Monday what it called a trove of documents from the talks over a proposed trade deal between the European Union and the United States. The proposed deal, which President Obama would like to see finalized before he leaves office, has already received criticism on both sides of the Atlantic. According to Greenpeace, the documents indicate that American trade negotiators pressed their European counterparts to loosen important environmental, consumer protection and other provisions as part of the deal, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. The documents,...

    From October 2013 forward we have discussed the presidential election of 2016 and foretold/warned what was to come. There are trillions of dollars at stake. The culmination of four years strategic planning (2011 – 2015) from Wall Street -via legislative priorities- are enmeshed within the outcome. The financiers have spent hundreds of millions on the construction. Anyone with even moderate research skills could assemble the same data if they had: a.) time, and b.) inclination. Sometimes, like the “splitter strategy“, conspiracies are not theory. The behavior inherent within the visible activity is simply just an outcome of a mutually beneficial...
  • CHINA SAYS "NO DOLLARS" FOR NEW YUAN

    SuperStation 95 ^ | 4 13 2016 | US Reporter
    In a shocking move likely to crush the US economy overnight, China is refusing to make its new gold-backed Yuan, convertible from or to US Dollars. The new Yuan will be introduced next Tuesday, April 19. When the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed to add the Yuan to the basket of world currencies used for Global Reserves and International Trade, they wanted China to make the Yuan more reliable as a currency. Since then, China has almost un-pegged its Yuan from the Dollar, allowing its value to fluctuate on world markets. But for years, China has been amassing huge amounts...

    Barack Obama told officials at the CIA Wednesday that ISIS is now on the defensive. He didn’t mention this. The Islamic State terrorist group is operating a camp eight miles from the US border near El Paso, Texas. Judicial Watch reported: “ ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated...

    The College Fix ^ | 4/14/2016 | Anita Lopez
    A business class at Purdue University teaches students the phrase “America is a melting pot” is a microaggression, according to class handouts obtained by The College Fix. That phrase is among at least a dozen examples students were recently instructed on in the Management 301 course. Additional microaggressions listed on the worksheet include: “Where are you from,” “There is only one race, the human race,” “Everyone can succeed in society if they work hard enough” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” These phrases are problematic because they promote the “myth of meritocracy” or represent “statements...

However, last night on Sean Hannity RNC Chairman Reince Priebus discussed the delegate math and state of the GOP race headed toward the presidential nomination. RNC Chairman Preibus and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan are best friends having grown up in the same town in Wisconsin and attending High School together.

    Following Tuesday primary contests in Florida and Ohio, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reacted to the results and speculated about the prospects of a cross-party presidential ticket that could include Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and GOP presidential hopeful Gov. John Kasich (R-OH). According to Matthews, it would be a smart play for Clinton to win over voters disaffected by a potential ticket that included Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. “I think if we see a large crossover tonight in the results, to [Kasich] among Democrats and independents, that’s a strong statement, I think, and maybe this is just me talking,” Matthews...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner Wednesday endorsed current House Speaker Paul Ryan to be the Republican presidential nominee. At the Republican convention, “anybody can be nominated,” Boehner said at a conference in Boca Raton, Fla. “If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said. "They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.” Over the last few months, Boehner has privately said that he thought Ryan would be a good candidate...

    As the nation prepares to ring in the New Year, President Barack Obama is preparing a colossal new executive action that could print-up work permits for a huge number of foreign white-collar graduates every year, above and beyond the levels set by Congress. This executive action, which directly bypasses Congressional lawmakers, is likely to reverberate across the presidential race, as GOP voters look to choose a nominee they believe will most effectively roll back the President’s still-expanding agenda. And it will certainly raise new security concerns as it covers categories of immigration utilized by migrants from the Middle East and...

    SAN FRANCISCO - Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who opened fire on a San Bernardino holiday party earlier this month, were buried Tuesday in a quiet, graveside funeral guarded by FBI agents. Many of those who attended mosque with the couple refused to attend, two mosque members said. US-born Farook, 28, and his Pakistani-born wife Malik, 29, killed 14 people and injured 21, in what US officials have called a terrorist attack. They died later that day in a gun battle with police. The funeral followed traditional Islamic rituals, said an attendee. At a Muslim cemetery hours away from...

    Open the Books, a government watchdog organization has put out a ,report that reveals that the EPA spends millions on buying military equipment, including guns, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear. Forgive me, but when I think of the EPA, modern warfare does not become the first image that crosses my mind. I have a real hard time wrapping my mind around the EPA needing amphibious assault ships. And can they even be operated in waters polluted by millions of gallons of orange mine sludge? I admit I am somewhat curious to what...

Caitlyn, the 15-month old Staffy-mix that was found last week in critical condition with her muzzle clamped shut with electrical tape, is now recovering from surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Charleston Animal Society, veterinarian Dr. Henri Bianucci performed the surgery to repair extensive damage to Caitlyn’s cheek and lips. The surgery, which took about two hours to perform, originally called for repair to her tongue which appeared to have become irreparably damaged due to loss of blood when it became clamped between her top and bottom teeth while her...

You know the e-mail I'm talking about. It accuses Hillary of helping the Black Panthers get away with torture and murder during the early 1970s. With the 2004 presidential race drawing near, the spam mills are creaking to life, flooding the Internet once more with this agitprop classic.

    This phrase became a rallying cry for Ferguson residents, who took to the streets to protest the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. Witness accounts spread after the shooting that Brown had his hands raised in surrender, mouthing the words “Don’t shoot” as his last words before being shot execution-style. The gesture of raised hands became a symbol of outrage over mistreatment of unarmed black youth by police. That narrative was called into question when a St. Louis County grand jury could not confirm those testimonies. And a recently released Department of Justice...

Those infatuated with big government are celebrating the event as a reflection of an improving economy resuscitated by government spending and stimulus programs.

According to Democracy Now, Risen’s original story was supposed to be published in the New York Times prior to the Presidential election in 2004. However, the report was not published until 2006, because Risen was under “government pressure,” due to the fact that his article could have had an...

    On June 6, 1984, President Ronald Reagan stood at the very spot on the northern coast of France where forty years before Allied soldiers had stormed ashore to liberate Europe from the long night of Nazi tyranny. As an audience of D-Day veterans and world leaders listened, President Reagan introduced the American Rangers who captured the cliffs as “champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.” But starting this year, many of our best students won’t learn about the “boys of Pointe du Hoc.” Although state and local U.S. history standards recognize and...

    Most Americans are unaware that under the “Refugee Resettlement Program,” whole Muslim communities from hostile nations are imported into the United States, circumventing whatever immigration laws that are still intact. This is made even more dangerous by what organization determines who is are refugees and who aren’t. It’s the UN, driven largely by the world’s largest international body, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC is a modern day caliphate made up of 56 countries and the Palestinian terrorists. For years, a handful of my colleagues and I have warned of the reckless immigration polices here in America and...

    Citing the 2010 arrest of a Pennsylvania man based on alleged threats he posted on his Facebook page, the Rutherford Institute has filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to protect the First Amendment rights of citizens posting content online. Anthony Elonis was convicted of four separate counts of interstate communication of threats in 2012 and was sentenced to 44 months in prison, in addition to three years of supervision upon his release.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 8/25/2014 | neo neocon
    On Saturday the WaPo featured a wordy piece devoted to Darren Wilson’s dysfunctional family of origin, and the racial and other problems in the police force he used to work for, difficulties that seem to have had nothing whatsoever to do with him. As William A. Jacobson has written, it’s an attempt at guilt by association. That effort seems even more biased when it is contrasted with a lengthy AP article published the very next day in the Sunday WaPo that tells us what a great guy Michael Brown was. From Saturday’s article about Wilson, Darren Wilson’s first job was...

    New Yorker editor David Remnick asked the president why the Al Qaeda flag is now seen flying in Falluja in Iraq and in certain locations in Syria, and therefore the jihad group has not been “decimated” as Obama had said repeatedly during his 2012 reelection campaign. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told Remnick. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist...

    Dana Loesch on Monday shared the story of her upbringing, saying “poverty is a choice” and she knows “a thing or two” about it. “I spent my childhood in a house headed by a single mom, and sometimes, we would have milk, gravy and biscuits twice a day to save money,” Loesch began, filling in on The Glenn Beck Program. “I borrowed notebook paper from my cousin because we were pinching pennies. We didn’t have cable. We didn’t have cell phones. We didn’t have any of the stuff that kids today have. We rented a tiny house in a small...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 8/25/2014 | Washington Free Beacon Staff
    Jason Richwine at National Review Online reports that the evidence behind the Common Core standards is “really weak”, despite proponents’ claims that they are “research- and evidence-based.” Richwine dives into some of the lackluster research behind the standards: Now the Center for Education Policy at George Washington University has put together a compendium summarizing over 60 research papers related to Common Core design and implementation. If there is empirical evidence on the importance of strong standards, this is probably the place to find it. Unfortunately, only two papers in the entire compendium are devoted to measuring the impact of Common...
  • Athens, GA mayor attempting to put brakes on proposed resettlement of (more?) refugees

    Another “pocket of resistance?” LOL! I can see “Welcoming America” scurrying to Athens at this very minute! In July we reported on a plan by US State Department contractor—International Rescue Committee (IRC)—to open an office and begin resettling Congolese refugees to Athens, GA. Now comes news (hat tip: Joanne) that the Democratic mayor, Nancy Denson, is throwing cold water on the scheme by asking the IRC to “present a formal refugee integration plan.” That is exactly what every town or city faced with this crisis (yes, a crisis when a refugee contractor comes to your town!) should do—demand a plan...

    Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has existed for years. The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known. Waters, 38, was ousted from his post effective today, OSU President Michael V. Drake said. Details of the investigation are laid out in...

    What if Barack Obama wasn’t inept at all? What if his many failures and misdirections were part of a larger scheme to confuse, misdirect, and eventually destroy our ability to make any reasonable predictions about what comes next? On the other hand, what if his utter hubris has engineered so vast a mistake that his bridge collapses? [Update: Below is a video of one woman speaking out at the meeting in Lawrenceville.
