    Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computer, was arguably more intelligent and capable than 99.9% of the population. In a 1980 interview Jobs gave his vision for education: 'I am a very big believer in equal opportunity, as opposed to equal outcome….Equal opportunity to me more than anything means a great education….Maybe even more important than a great family life…It pains me because we do know how to provide a great education. We really do. If we got our act together, we could make sure that every young child in this country got a great education. But we fall far short...

    A 30-year-old Russian politician and her husband have been killed in a car explosion. The semi-naked bodies of Oksana Bobrovskaya, a member of Vladimir Putin's United Russia Party, and her husband Nikita Bobrovsky were found in the back seat of their Toyota RAV4 There was speculation on Friday night that the couple had been having sex at the time of the blast in Novosibirsk, Siberia's largest city. Other accounts suggested that a grenade was detonated by the MP's husband, Nikita, a former member of Russia's special services. The Siberian Times said that the couple had marital problems, with unconfirmed reports...

    Man Pleads Guilty to Stealing Human Brains from Medical Museum A 23-year-old Indiana man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to breaking into a medical museum and stealing preserved human brains and other tissue that he then sold online, authorities said. David Charles, of Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to six charges including receiving stolen property, and burglary in a Marion County court where Magistrate Amy Barbar sentenced him to one year of home detention and two years of probation, county prosecutor spokesman Anthony Deer said. Charles on multiple occasions broke into the Indiana Medical History Museum to steal jars of brains and other...

    Most Americans have heard of the case of DB Cooper, who is accused of pulling off the only plane hijacking in the history of the United States that has never been solved. Now, 44 years after the brazen air heist, a Michigan author has put forward a new theory linking the mystery of DB Cooper to an obscure missing person case involving a married father of four who vanished two years before the skyjacking and was never heard from again. Over the years, the facts of the skyjacking history have become the stuff of legends: on November 24, 1971, a...

    Having overwhelmingly lost the public debate about whether the Obama administration’s Syrian refugee screening policy should be enhanced, Democrats have retreated to more comfortable rhetorical ground: demanding more gun control. Their new secret weapon? A bill that would ban anyone whose name appears on a terror watch list from buying or possessing a firearm. The idea sounds reasonable enough until you dig into the details and realize that the proposed Democratic legislation is a shocking assault on the constitutional right to due process. What makes the proposal even worse is that the Democrats’ assault on due process isn’t necessary to...

    The last time we saw Alan Colmes on Fox was over the weekend. And even when going back and forth with the host and another commentator, he claimed that the GOP was using the Paris Crisis as red meat against Obama and maybe for the 2016 race. 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?

Obama WANTS more refugees to flood into Europe and the U.S. Notice how adamant he is about acceptance of refugees, yet mysteriously passive when talking about the evils of ISIS?

Airline and security officials at Kennedy Airport let 150 passengers arriving from an international flight leave the airport without going through customs, the Daily News has learned. American Airlines Flight 1671 arrived at JFK from Cancun, Mexico, at 8:50 p.m. Friday. When the plane landed, passengers walked out of the airport without having their passports or bags checked by Customs and Border Protection, sources told The News. A source familiar with the matter said passengers disembarking the plane “just followed” a gate agent. The...

A secret archive containing the names of two million Freemasons have been made public for the first time which reveals extensive Masonic involvement in the controversial British investigation into the catastrophe. It confirms that not only the judge who oversaw the British Wreck Commissioner’s inquiry into the disaster and leading investigators, but also even some of those who escaped censure were all Freemasons. While a US Senate inquiry into the sinking savaged the White Star Line and singled out the British...

    The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on October 17, 1979. Our children’s education has depreciated considerably as evidenced by test scores and the quality of mis-educated youth in our country who can...

    Gun control is a powder keg of an issue anyway, but selecting an individual as spokesman that reasonable people agree should never be allowed to own a gun, only makes the effort more prone to misfire. And that’s exactly what happened in Virginia. Democrats are convinced the next election is always going to be the one where “gun control” pays off. Except it doesn’t: Election after election after election this favorite issue is a dud at the ballot box. Bitter clingers always manage to out-vote eager grabbers. The problem is particularly acute in off–year, nonpresidential elections. Making gun control’s appearance...

A post compared the Eastern style to the Western style. The Eastern style comes out on top when it comes to being healthier. BCBSNC says it is because the Western take on BBQ requires a bit more attention and more flavorings meaning more fat and sodium. It tipped the scales to the East too because the whole pig is used and not just dark meat on the...

Speaking at a GOP meeting on Saturday, Santorum said that President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are directly responsible for the creation of ISIS/ISIL. He said that the terrorist group "is a creation of a political decision by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to abandon Iraq -- against all of our generals' recommendations, against all of the policy recommendations."

    The people who carried out Friday's attacks in Paris may have used Sony's PlayStation 4 video game consoles to coordinate the operation, according to officials in nearby Brussels, where at least some of the suspected terrorists likely originated. The game consoles would have allowed the attack's perpetrators to communicate more securely -- as in, away from intelligence officials' ears or eyes -- compared to traditional channels like email or smartphone apps. When Belgium authorities arrested several people with suspected links to the Paris terrorist attacks, among the evidence they recovered was at least one Playstation 4 console, Forbes reported.

Violations also include pressuring a third party to conspire in a cover-up. Each felony violation is subject to five years in prison.

Second, you have to brainwash young teachers into thinking these ideas actually do work. In this way, you can manipulate your teachers into doing a bad job but they never know it. They remain gung-ho on the side of illiteracy.

    Millions of refugees from Washington's wars are currently over-running Europe. Washington's 14-year and ongoing slaughter of Muslims and destruction of their countries are war crimes for which the US government's official 9/11 conspiracy theory was the catalyst. Factual evidence and science do not support Washington's conspiracy theory. The 9/11 Commission did not conduct an investigation. It was not permitted to investigate. The Commission sat and listened to the government's story and wrote it down. Afterwards, the chairman and cochairman of the Commission said that the Commission "was set up to fail." For a factual explanation of 9/11, watch this...

    It must come as total consternation to all those people who have claimed for years now that “climate change” or “global warming” as it used to be termed is about ready to “incinerate” all life on earth.

And it looks like night owls may have it tougher when it comes to their overall well-being and functioning in a predominantly 9-to-5 world. In a recent study, researchers at the University of Barcelona, Spain, compared "morning people," those early birds who like to get up at dawn, and "evening people," night owls who prefer to stay up late and sleep in.

    And did you all hear how Joyce Blowhart said something like, Hey, Im a comedian, I make fun of everyone. Then she named the politicians she poked fun at, "Except Michelle Obama". She did mention that she made fun of Hillary's mens wear, but has anyone on The View ever made jokes about Hillary's face? But it was OK for them to make fun of Carly's face to the extent that it would make a great Halloween mask. What next? will they start on Ben Carson because he is a funny looking Black Man?
