    I hope someone can help me. My husband just received one of those scam calls that asks a question and gets you to answer yes. The caller records your yes and disconnects. Then they use that yes to agree to some contract.
  • THE THIRD WAY Politics Of The Radical Center

    The "Third Way" ideology is much more than just 'another way' of doing things. Rather, it is the specific ideology of the political elite and their multinational industrial paymasters. And, if you study this ideology closely, you may soon learn the real reason behind all those very oppressive laws, rules and regulations coming out of Washington these past few years. Simply put, the intent of the "Third Way" ideologues is to design a classed society -- made up of us worker serfs and our elite controllers. To do that, it is necessary that the elite have general control over money,...
  • The Curious case of Kevin Williamson vs Rush Limbaugh

    National Review ^ | June 10, 2013 | Kevin D. Williamson
    So Rush Limbaugh is a little upset with your favorite correspondent today, because of some remarks I made on the Bill Maher program on Friday. Rush, usually an astute observer, is off-target here: He has simply misunderstood what I said. ..... ...My advice to Rush is to take a minute, have a cigar, and read my new book on the transformative and revolutionary powers of capitalism, which I suspect he will find useful, as he so often has in the past, back when National Review used to be conservative.

    I received this email today and immediately called American Express. They said that my account was in good standing and that they did not see any problem. They did not say whether they sent the email, but the woman said that she didn't see any problem with the account. This is the email: Dear American Express Member Because of unusual number of invalid login attempts on you account, we had to believe that, there might be some security problems on you account. So we have decided to put an extra verification process to ensure your identity and your account security....

    Save Whatcom ^ | 3/1/2014 | Eva
    This is a link to a posting that appeared on my Facebook Page this morning from a Republican Affiliated / Libertarian affiliated group that was organized to support the Gateway Pacific Coal terminal. I don't know how to post a picture, but it is the GIF on the page that is of interest. It is a picture of the socialist fist over a housing development. The group, Save Whatcom uses variations of a green fist, rather than the red fist, but it is still a fist. http://whatcomteaparty.org/attention-local-land-owners-and-well-owners-part-two/

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Updated Aug. 27, 2009 12:52 p.m. ET | Betsy McCaughey
    Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, health adviser to President Barack Obama, is under scrutiny. As a bioethicist, he has written extensively about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Dr. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

    THere are some of the details you need to know. What the government will require you to do: • Sec. 202 (p. 91-92) of the bill requires you to enroll in a "qualified plan." If you get your insurance at work, your employer will have a "grace period" to switch you to a "qualified plan," meaning a plan designed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. If you buy your own insurance, there's no grace period. You'll have to enroll in a qualified plan as soon as any term in your contract changes, such as the co-pay, deductible or...

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | Sept 3, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield
    While stressing that Washington’s primary goal remained “limited and proportional” attacks, to degrade Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities and deter their future use, the president hinted at a broader long-term mission that may ultimately bring about a change of regime. “It also fits into a broader strategy that can bring about over time the kind of strengthening of the opposition and the diplomatic, economic and political pressure required – so that ultimately we have a transition that can bring peace and stability, not only to Syria but to the region,” he told senior members of Congress at a White House meeting...

    I have had my posting privileges cut off at the WSJ. The help desk admits that it is a case of partisan censorship and have asked me to plead my case to the WSJ Community Board. First, the moderator accused me of not being who I said I was, then he said that I used offensive language. I saved a copy of that post to prove that the most offensive word in the post was, pregnant. Then he demanded that I complete a personal profile, giving out my place of employment and email address. I told them that I was...

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | 4/18/2013 | Ari Lieberman
    On April 16, Palestinians in Gaza cheered. They danced in the streets and handed out candy and sweets to motorists and pedestrians alike. They were not however celebrating the inauguration of a new school or the completion of a hospital. Instead, they were celebrating death. On April 16, Palestinians of Gaza celebrated the Boston marathon atrocity. While our first responders were picking up severed limbs and tending to the wounded, Palestinians reveled in Boston’s misery. The Palestinian reaction to the horrific events in Boston was unsurprising and was in fact quite predictable. After the 9-11 attacks that killed 3,000 people,...
  • SEC Nominee Mary Jo White Protected Corrupt Union Bosses in Teamsters Prosecution

    National Legal Policy Center ^ | 9/25/13 | Peter Flaherty
    Mary Jo White is a poor choice to head the SEC. As a U.S. attorney, she demonstrated a lack of political independence and competence. In the late 90's prosecution of the Teamsters money landering scandal, White won several guilty pleas from low-level has-beens, but gave a pass to prominent union figures who played a key role in the Democratic political campaign of 2000, and every one since. The magnitude of White's dereliction of duty can be seen in who was not prosecuted- Richard Trumka, Andrew Stern and Gerald McEntee. In the 1996 Teamster election, incumbent President Ron Carey narrowly defeated...

    While accusing presidential candidate Mitt Romney of cutting a swath through American industry during his time as a private equity executive, the White House was working with another private equity firm with long-standing Washington ties to save jobs in the Northeast, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.

    Facebook users in Washington state will have something else to brag about to their online friends: that they registered to vote on Facebook. The secretary of state’s office said Tuesday it will have an application on its Facebook page that allows residents to register to vote and then “like” the application and recommend it to their friends. It’s expected to launch as early as next week.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 6/19/2012 | By MARY ANASTASIA O'GRADY
    The $31 million Medicare-fraud case reported from Miami yesterday may not be the largest in American history but certainly is one of the more innovative. According to the Miami Herald, it is "the first such case that directly traces money fleeced from the beleaguered program into the Cuban banking system." The Herald described the heist as "an intricate system" that funneled money "from fraudulent HIV treatment and medical equipment billings, first through banks in Canada and Trinidad and eventually [to] Cuba."

    Breitbart TV ^ | 61/13/12 | John Nolte
    The producers behind HBO's "Game of Thrones" would've been better off had they simple said what is likely the truth, that they hate George W. Bush and impaled his prosthetic head on a pole for the kind of childish shits and giggles the Secret Service might want to look into. Instead, they offer absurd explanations that, in my opinion, only prove what sniveling weasals (sic) they really are:

    George Soros, T. Boone Pickens, Kevin G. Douglas and companies under their control stand to reap the rewards of billions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies contained in a Democratic-sponsored measure set for a vote this week. ..The act would subsidize three different enterprises controlled by Soros, Pickens and Douglas, who consistently rank among the most generous political donors, according to Federal Election Commission Records. Moreover, HUMAN EVENTS has learned that one of these companies, Fuel Systems Solutions based in Santa Ana, Calif., has and continues to conduct business, through its foreign subsidiaries, with customers in Iran, according to the company’s...

    I went to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Monday to find out. Out of 1,189,530 votes cast the next day in bellwether Ohio, Mr. Santorum lost to Mitt Romney by only 10,288, at last count. He's doing something right, and what one learned in Cuyahoga Falls, an Akron suburb, is that it doesn't have much to do with the famous Santorum controversies over social issues. It's about ObamaCare. And it's about the idea of freedom. ....Rick Santorum should stay in the race, repeating from now till summer the perverse link between the ObamaCare mandate and the American idea of freedom. It looks...

    Financial Times ^ | September 30, 2011 | Review by Neville Hawcock
    “Give me the child,” the Jesuit maxim is supposed to have run, “and I will give you the man”. But not if Richard Dawkins gets there first. The arch-atheist’s new book, The Magic of Reality, is designed to inoculate tender minds once and for all against the supernatural and its apologists. Actually, not just tender minds. While it’s aimed at children of 10 and up, the text is persuasive whatever one’s age. After all, Dawkins is a populariser as well as a proselytiser; his argument, beautifully complemented here by Dave McKean’s copious illustrations, has wonderful clarity.
