The new group, which claims to be non-partisan, will work to push new gun restrictions at the state level. But the coalition has one major problem – they will not let anyone know who they are.

    Most of the people of the world have concluded that the decades of warnings about “global warming” and its successor, “climate change”, is just idiotic nonsense. Few believe that humans ever had or ever will have any role in what the weather will be tomorrow or a thousand years from now. They are right. One of the most distinguishing factors about the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory has been the way its advocates have always predicted major changes decades into the future. When the future arrived, as it has since the first doomsday predictions were made in the late 1980s, they...

    With a win against the estate of late Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle behind him, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura now has his sights on HarperCollins, the publisher of the bestselling memoir "American Sniper." Ventura filed a lawsuit Monday against the New York publisher, alleging the publicity generated by the book with a "false and defamatory" segment "substantially increased sales of 'American Sniper,' thereby generating millions of dollars in revenues and profits for Harper Collins." HarperCollins does not comment on pending litigation, a spokesperson said Tuesday. A federal jury in St. Paul found in July that a segment of the...

    If they had timed their escape just right, three prisoners who slipped out of Alcatraz more than 50 years ago on a raft made from raincoats would have had a chance of survival, new research shows. Scientists who were studying the San Francisco Bay's strong tides reconstructed the possible routes of the audacious 1962 escape. The men might have been able to find shelter on an outcrop near the Golden Gate Bridge — that is, if they weren't swept out to sea first, according to the study. From 1934 to 1963, during its time as a maximum high-security federal prison,...

This was never included in any previous edition. Here is the question: Q: Have you EVER participated in militias (not including official state government militias) or paramilitary groups? This is unprecedented. It says it is a revised July 2008 form: but I did one in 2011, and this question wasn't included.

The Portland, Oregon, couple was encouraged to use a new noninvasive blood test that their doctor said was "99 percent" accurate in predicting chromosomal abnormalities. The test revealed the fetus had Trisomy 18 or Edwards syndrome, a painful genetic condition that is nearly always fatal, and their doctor told them to prepare for the worst. "If you google Trisomy 18, your heart will just shatter with the prognosis," Diamond,...

    EPA’s proposed guidelines for carbon dioxide (CO2)emissions from existing stationary sources are fatally flawed. The rule violates the language of the Clean Air Act; it arbitrarily and capriciously imposes emission reduction goals with no analysis from EPA on the actual warming impacts; it is not supported by the American people nor Congress; it will drive up electricity prices; and it will threaten the stability of the electricity grid. EPA fails to note that in exchange for higher electricity rates, the benefit of this rule is that the world is expected to be 0.018 degrees Celsius cooler than otherwise by 2100....

Apple's security problems are compounded by its reputation as a "safe" platform. Cyberspies will flourish and hackers will target Apple devices more often in 2015.

    The Earth is presently in an interglacial period—a period between ice ages. Since the end of the last ice age, Earth’s surface temperatures have been above the temperature needed to maintain ice sheets and glaciers, which covered much of the land masses at mid-to-high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere. As a result, those ice sheets and glaciers have been melting for tens of thousands of years and sea levels have risen…and will continue to rise until the start of the next ice age.Many of us are old enough to remember the scare stories from the 1970s, a time when climate...

    A history professor, writing in VEER (an arts and culture magazine published in Norfolk, Virginia), tells a startling anecdote: “A couple of years back, a student came to me for a conference, late in the semester, and asked, ‘Which came first, the Civil War or the Revolutionary War?’ Never mind that we had spent a week on both, and that he had been in attendance (physically, at any rate), for all of those sessions.” Note that the professor and the student seem equally unashamed. This is not a homeless man with a drug problem. This is an adult student taking...

    Eric Garner was a well known pest who had been selling illegal untaxed loose cigarettes right in front of retail businesses that sold legal tax stamped cigarettes and been arrested for selling such untaxed cigarettes many times. He had previously been arrested on many occasions not for selling loosies but for selling smuggled, untaxed cigarettes.Police came to arrest Garner due to local business owners complaints. In fact he had been arrested by the same officer previously but did not resist. Garner recognized this officer. This time he put up resistance and the smaller police officers had to swarm him to...

    It’s hard to be compassionate and condescending at the same time.  But that’s how President Obama comes across whenever he jaws about the plight of illegals in America.  The very term “undocumented worker” tends to suggest a justification for having broken the law. We know little about the 11 million or so illegal aliens in our midst.  We’re not even certain if their count is accurate, since the current modus operandi in dealing with issues in this non-transparent administration is to stretch or shrink the truth depending on political expediency.  This is evident in the nebulous statistics relating to those...

    Marie Ideson was just over 16 weeks pregnant with a Down Syndrome child. “I was bullied into going ahead with an abortion,” says Ideson, 46, a GP surgery manager. “I only wish I could turn back the clock. I think of the daughter I never had every day. I’ll always regret it.” Ideson had an amniocentesis to determine if the baby she was carrying was disabled. She was told it was a routine part of pre-natal care. Four days later, she received a call from the hospital: “A woman said, ‘I’m sorry to say your baby has Down.’ It was...
  • Ferguson Rioters and Firebugs = ISIS Joiners and Enablers.

    It has all become very clear to me. The same type of person most likely to buy into the 'logic' that validates destroying their own city or destroying anyone who differs from them in any significant way, is the same type of person most likely to join ISIS as an insurgent or as a supporter. This is scary, disheartening and disgusting all at once. Both Ferguson Rioters and ISIS take an undisguised delight in demonizing and dehumanizing specific other groups based on race, religion or appearance. Both Ferguson Rioters and ISIS depend on bullying tactics to get their way. Many...

    Approximately 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome in the U.S. every year. This number would be much higher, but 90 percent of babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome in the womb are aborted. Pregnant women can get a screening done that will tell them the likelihood of their child having Down syndrome. Despite the fact that the screenings are not one hundred percent accurate, and the fact that there are hundreds of families on waiting lists wanting to adopt a child with Down syndrome, many expectant mothers choose to end the life of their child after being told...

    One of the world’s largest oil companies has not only donated tens of thousands of dollars to one of the world’s biggest abortion companies, but it blocked a shareholder resolution complaining about it. Tom Strobhar, Chairman of Life Decision International, which monitors companies that donate to Planned Parenthood, said the corporation blocked a resolution by a teacher from Chicago complaining about the donation. Responding to that, Strobhar, following the teacher’s lead and hoping to force Chevron to list the groups it supports so information about its $26,000 check to Planned Parenthood could be further brought to light filed his own...

    Whatever Barack Obama has to say about “climate change” (formerly known as “global warming”) is a lie. It would be nice to have a President and a government we could trust.

    From former clinic worker and clinic director Carol Everett: “It was always difficult to find and train telemarketers who could call themselves “counselors” while selling abortions. “We’re helping women,” I had to remind them constantly. Those who didn’t buy my pitch quickly left. I started to believe my own rhetoric. I had to be convincing in order to persuade my telephone counselors, but each time I met with Chuck, I was quickly snapped back to reality. We were in the business of making money, a lot of it.” Carol Everett with Jack Shaw, Blood Money (Oregon: Multnomah Press Books, Questar...
