    An aide from the Donald Trump presidential campaign warned the Republican National Committee Tuesday against GOP donors pooling funds to coalesce his rivals against him, suggesting that Trump would reverse his pledge not to launch a third-party candidacy if he felt he was being treated unfairly. Michael Cohen, who serves as special counsel to the billionaire Republican candidate, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that it would be a "bad, bad decision" for super PACs to unite against Trump’s candidacy. "Donald Trump wants to be treated fairly," Cohen said sternly. "He will demand the GOP treat him fairly." Cohen's comments came a...

    Feel free to cross-post this to other boards of which you may be a member. In keeping with the Thanksgiving spirit, I thought I'd put this up for those who are going to deep fry their turkey and especially for those who will be attempting to deep fry their first turkey. Make sure you use fresh peanut oil for the frying. You can reuse the oil up to 3 times (2 is preferable) if you're deep frying multiple turkeys. NOTE: If you have a deep fryer that says it can hold an 18 lb. turkey, DO NOT use a turkey...

    One such video showed two men harassing a homeless man on the street outside a restaurant. The men let loose an impressive string of insults at the homeless man. "What's your name, b**** a** n*****?" said one of the gentlemen, obviously a skilled linguist. The homeless man eventually got up and walked away, which was admirable. One can only imagine the amount of self-restraint required to keep from smashing those thugs' faces in. However our story didn't end there. Another man walked up and confronted the two thugs. After conversing with them, he promptly punches the lead thug in the...

    Studies suggest consensus among scientists is as high as 97 percent.In the face of warmer air and ocean temperatures, rising sea levels, stronger storms and an increased risk of drought, fire and flood, scientists agree -- quite overwhelmingly -- that climate change is very real. In fact, studies suggest that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists believe climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. Yet it's not hard to find yourself in a spirited back-and-forth with the so-called "deniers" -- those who continue to reject mainstream climate science.

    Reuters ^ | 11-24-2015 | BOZORGMEHR SHARAFEDIN
    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday accused the United States of trying to divide Iraq along sectarian and ethnic lines and urged Iraqis to withstand any such plans. Shi'ite Muslim power Iran wields great influence in Iraq, which has a majority Shi'ite population. Its military advisers are helping direct Baghdad's campaign against Sunni Islamist militant group Islamic State, which seized around a third of Iraq's territory last year. It was not clear if Khamenei was referring to a specific incident, but Iran has protested about U.S. policy in Iraq several times this year. "The Americans must not be...

It apparently contained the following text: But tolerance of Muslim immigrants began to change in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. Parallel to the declarations of "unconditional solidarity" with Americans by the German majority, rallies of another sort were taking place in Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Bottle rockets were set off from building courtyards, a poor man's fireworks: two rockets here, three rockets there. Altogether, hundreds of rockets were shooting skyward in celebration, just as most...

    The State Department is alerting Americans to the possible risks of travel due to increased terrorist threats around the world. A travel alert issued on Monday says current information suggests that Islamic State militants, al-Qaida, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups continue to plan attacks in multiple regions. U.S. authorities say the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of IS return from Syria and Iraq, and others not affiliated with terror groups engage in violence on their own. Extremists have attacked in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey and Mali and IS has claimed responsibility for bombing a Russian airliner...

    The on-line retailer Amazon recently revealed the most popular verse in the Bible for Americans. No, it’s not the ubiquitous John 3:16 displayed on posters at sporting events everywhere. Instead, Americans are increasingly turning to Philippians 4:6-7 which the apostle Paul begins with these words: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Be anxious for nothing? That’s a lot easier said than done these days. Just read the headlines, and you’ll quickly discover plenty of reasons to worry: “4 Jihad Attacks in 4 Days,” “Ukraine Could...

So technically,He is still blaming Bush for what happened in Paris along with the previous ISIS attacks. Is it safe to assume that Alan Colmes is either a complete jerk, and/or, a paid DNC commentator?

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    GENEVA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Weather-related disasters such as floods and heatwaves have occurred almost daily in the past decade, almost twice as often as two decades ago, with Asia being the hardest hit region, a U.N. report said on Monday. While the report authors could not pin the increase wholly on climate change, they did say that the upward trend was likely to continue as extreme weather events increased. Since 1995, weather disasters have killed 606,000 people, left 4.1 billion injured, homeless or in need of aid, and accounted for 90 percent of all disasters, it said. A recent...

    I watched with great interest Amazon's "The Man in the High Castle," a novel of Philip Dick's that I read in the 1970s.

In the novel, the Axis won WW II and they rule the world. In the TV version, there are alternate realities, one in which the Axis rules and one which is our world.

    It pays to have friends in high places. Al Sharpton gave himself a 71 percent raise last year after his National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five...

The movie is on track to have the biggest December opening ever, topping "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," which took in $85 million in the U.S. and Canada on its opening weekend in December 2012.

    Linda Ronstadt - Poor Poor Pitiful Me "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" is a rock song written and originally recorded by Warren Zevon in 1976. It is best known as one of Linda Ronstadt's signature hits from 1978. Country music singer Terri Clark scored a hit in 1996 with her own cover of the song. There have also been many other versions of this song. In keeping with Warren Zevon's sardonic lyrical style, the song's verses deal with a failed suicide, domestic abuse, and a brush with sadomasochism. The song first appeared on Zevon's 1976 self-titled solo album. It is reputed...
