    Would you leave a multi-billion dollar business up to chance? What if all of that time, emotion, and money has been wasted on a lie? What if the action on the field isn’t what it appears to be? What if you, and millions others like you, have been duped – outright lied to – by those franchises you hold so dear to your heart, all in the name of making an easy buck? Well, my friend, it has happened. And although your name might not be “Mark,” you have certainly become one to those running the carnival known as professional...

    During today's confirmation hearing for Loretta Lynch as DOJ Attorney General, Ted Cruz asked some incredibly poignant questions one of which should send chills down every American's spine. Cruz asked one question the answer of which SHOULD be quick and obviously "NO!". The question is as follows: "Is it constitutional (for the U.S. gov't) to use a drone's lethal force against an American citizen ON AMERICAN SOIL who doesn't pose a threat?" Loretta Lynch failed to answer with 'no' just as Eric Holder also once failed to answer 'no'. There should be NO debating or pondering the answer to this...

    Even after the fall of the Soviet Union, the 14,000-ton military radar installation in northern Ukraine, near the border with Belorussia, has remained a mystery to outside observers, largely because it sits right next to the Chernobyl Atomic Energy Station, where a reactor meltdown in the spring of 1986 rendered the surrounding area uninhabitable for the next, oh, several thousand years. Then again, a nuclear wasteland is just the sort of thing to attract a jaded 21st century tourist who doesn’t want to hear about your wild week on Phuket, and the Exclusion Zone has recently seen a drastic increase...

Justin Lee Colby, 33, was driving east on Westwood Drive near U.S. 19 about 1 p.m. Monday when, according to authorities, he veered off the road and hit Crystal Lynn Noordhuizen, who is seven months pregnant. Colby faces a charge of attempted homicide. Noordhuizen was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with minor injuries. Earlier Monday, she told deputies, she was in a fight with Colby and...

    President Obama announced Sunday that he’ll use his executive authority to designate 12 million acres in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as wilderness, walling it off from resource development. This abrogates a 1980 deal in which Congress specifically set aside some of this acreage for future oil and gas exploration. It’s also a slap at the new Republican Congress, where Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski has been corralling bipartisan support for more Arctic drilling.

    Deflategate has taken another twist. FOX Sports has learned that the NFL has zeroed in on a New England Patriots locker-room attendant in connection with the scandal of improperly inflated footballs used in the AFC championship game against Indianapolis. The person of interest was already interviewed by the league. The NFL is trying to determine whether any wrongdoing by this individual occurred, sources tell FOX Sports. There is surveillance video showing the attendant taking the footballs from the official's locker room into another room at Gillette Stadium before bringing them out to the field, sources tell FOX Sports.

Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.

    It’s not fossil fuels causing global warming, it’s man-made adjustments. Stop the adjustments! In South America, there are hardly any rural land thermometers. GISS tells us the area is warming (see the map below). Paul Homewood looked at the raw data. There are only three rural stations currently operating in the area, Puerto Casado, Mariscal, and San Juan, and they all show a raw trend that falls. As in so many other situations, after adjustments, all three show a rising trend. The changes are breathtaking. In Mariscal raw temperatures of 25.5C turned out to be “really” 22.5C. (Those 1950...

In fact, 2014 was among the coldest 3 percent of years of the last 10,000, but that doesn’t suit the political agenda.Figure 1We know the headline referred to NOAA’s projection, but the public only remember “warmest year”.

    In an effort to improve air quality across Utah during the winter season, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has proposed a seasonal wood burn ban, much to the chagrin of many locals. The ban would eliminate solid fuel burning in fireplaces and wood/coal stoves from Nov. 1 to March 15, except for homeowners whose homes are heated solely by wood. The proposal comes after Gov. Gary Herbert requested the the Air Quality Board explore options for improving wintertime air quality along Utah's Wasatch Front and Cache Valley. The region suffers from winter temperature inversions, which occur when a...

The cheerleader this time around seems to have been AP science correspondent Seth Borenstein. Various versions of his essay on the topic have permeated most of America’s newspapers including my own hometown...

    Obama now has two more years in which to try to destroy the U.S. economy; particularly its manufacturing and energy sectors. The extent to which he is putting in place the means to do that still remains largely unreported or under-reported in terms of the threat it represents. The vehicle for the nation’s destruction is the greatest hoax of the modern era, the claim that global warming must be avoided by reducing “greenhouse gas” emissions.

But every now and then, the mask slips. And rarely do pro-aborts show their true colors more grotesquely than they have in response to a recent paper (hat tip to the Stanek Report) by Quinnipiac Law Professor Stephen Giles, which asks whether “the right to elective abortion include[s] the right...

    Suppose someone wanted to dumb down a country. How would they accomplish this? In fact, no research is required. We don't need to speculate about what the most brilliant Pavlonians might do. American public schools have been dumbing down students for most of a century. The best techniques have been discovered, refined, and locked in place for many years. All that’s required is frank admiration for professionals who know their job. Simply apply their methods full-strength, and wait. You will have dumber schools, dumber kids, and a dumber society. First and most important, using any possible pretext, eliminate academic content....

    EXCLUSIVE: Doctors 'used nine-year-olds as human guinea pigs' for a new cervical cancer vaccine... and they suffered side-effects including nausea, dizziness and weight-loss Children as young as nine suffered side-effects after being used as unwitting human guinea pigs for a new multi-billion pound anti-cervical cancer drug, it has been claimed. The new anti-cancer drug has just been approved for use in the United States and is due to be released in Britain this year. But MailOnline has learned that several of the children used as 'guinea pigs' for the drug trial in India reported suffering problems including weight loss, fatigue,...

    Rumor has it that while the brave world leaders marched the streets of Paris, Obama was cowering under his desk sucking his thumb and Holder missed the march because he was too busy telling journalists why violent Muslim Jihadists have nothing to do with Islam....... REALLY!

    About 30 mins ago, "ISIS" (I highly doubt it's them, but rather some hacker outside working in their interest) hacked and took over the CENTCOM page. The account has just been locked, and just in time for Obama's global security meeting.

    We are fundamentally changing, it’s been coming for decades but it is more noticeable now because we have Internet, wireless devices, pocket size encyclopedias encapsulating libraries around the world, and instant access to real news around the globe. We see how the mainstream media has become the spokesperson for the ruling elites, corruption rules and day, and education is melting in the flames of common core. We are no longer a Constitutional Republic because we failed to keep it. We are a benign oligarchy composed of same party rule of the few oligarchs, no matter how we vote at the...

    At a conference for abortion providers, held in Los Angeles, nurse Henrietta Blackmon instructed other clinic workers: “We have to be very, very sensitive, and very, very aware what words we are using to describe the procedures used. Use the word “fetus”: this is a fetus; this is not a “baby.” Paul Marx, the Death Peddlers: War on the Unborn (Collegeville, Minnesota: St. John’s University press, 1971) 21

    Ron Weddington, one of the attorneys who drafted the brief for abortion rights in Roe V Wade, wrote a private letter to President-elect Bill Clinton arguing for the state to use abortion as population control. This letter was written in 1992: “[Y]ou can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I’m not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who...

    Guest Post by Willis EschenbachFollowing up on my previous investigations into the oceanic pH dataset, I’ve taken a deeper look at what the 2.5 million pH data points from the oceanographic data can tell us. Let me start with an overview of oceanic pH (the measure of alkalinity/acidity, with neutral being a pH of 7.0). Many people think that the ocean has only one pH  everywhere. Other people think that the oceanic pH is different in different places, but is constant over time. Neither view is correct.First, here is a view of a transect of the north Pacific ocean...

    Co-authored James Doogue and JoNovaEmpirical data withheld by key scientists shows that since 1910 ocean pH levels have not decreased in our oceans as carbon dioxide levels increased. Overall the trend is messy but more up than down, becoming less acidic. So much for those terrifying oceans of acid that were coming our way.What happened to those graphs? Scientists have had pH meters and measurements of the oceans for one hundred years. But experts decided that computer simulations in 2014 were better at measuring the pH in 1910 than the pH meters were. The red line (below) is the models...

    Seems to me this would be a good application of asset forfeiture. Catch'em and if they have any relationship with Mosques in the U.S, seize the Mosque and all it's assets. Extend this to members of CAIR that end up as terrorists. Start asset forfeiture proceedings against CAIR property.

    If liberals had their way, the glorious European utopia would be the model upon which all of human society would built. Whether you’re discussing taxes, healthcare, jobs, or welfare, Europe is the gold left-wing gold standard. Nowhere, however, is their unbridled euro-fetish more glaringly obvious than in the gun control debate. America could be a crime-free wonderland if, they say, the brutish slobs who populate the United States would simply embrace the hardcore anti-gun paranoia present in places like France.
