    President Obama announced a new executive order on Tuesday which authorizes federal agencies to conduct behavioral experiments on U.S. citizens in order to advance government initiatives. “A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights — research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them — can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people,” reads the executive order, released on Tuesday. The new program is the end result of a policy proposal the White House floated in 2013 entitled “Strengthening Federal Capacity for Behavioral...
  • Arson was cause of Planned Parenthood fire in Washington

    A pre-dawn blaze that heavily damaged a Planned Parenthood clinic was arson, fire investigators in Washington state determined Friday. Pullman Fire Department investigator Chris Wehrung also said a task force involving local agencies was investigating with the help of federal agencies. He declined to release other details. The fire follows a recent wave of protests at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. On Aug. 22, some 500 protesters gathered outside the Pullman clinic, waving signs and calling for Congress to defund the organization. Many protesters referenced a series of videos released by anti-abortion activists in California that appeared to show...
  • I Am Ashamed to Be a Vegetarian

    I’m a vegetarian. I haven’t eaten meat in 20 years. Up until this morning I was OK with my dietary choice. But then I saw this video just uploaded by “Direct Action Everywhere,” a radical vegetarian activist gang, and now I am ashamed. Ashamed to be associated with them. Ashamed that everyone I meet must think I’m some sort of anti-meat revolutionary. Ashamed that mean-spirited lunatics have hijacked my personal food preference and turned it into rallyng cry for passive-aggressive bullying. Watch and weep, as a contingent of vegetarian fascists burst into a random restaurant in San Francisco and try...

    So we know that, as good American citizens, we're all going to get out there and show the world that we care about our country's fate and vote to get that traitorous slime out of OUR White House on November 6th. However, I'm curious....what're your plans for the day AFTER the election? For many, they'll vote, watch the results, celebrate Obama's removal from power, and then go to work on Wednesday with a smile on our face. But....what if the results aren't so sanguine? Is anyone planning on staying home to watch out for "things" that might happen? If Obama...

    You might have thought that Mike Bloomberg—with his trans fat and smokes snatching—was the epitome of nanny staters. But the Big Apple mayor's got nothing on another New Yorker--Nicholas Kristof. In his New York Times column of today, Equality, A True Soul Food, Kristof preaches the urgent need for income redistribution as a means of . . . improving our souls. According to Kristof, "the toll of our stunning inequality is not just economic but also is a melancholy of the soul." And hey: what says soul improvement more than . . . raising taxes?! More excerpts and analysis after...

    Prepper (noun): An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances or lifestyle without significant reliance on other persons (i.e., being self-reliant), or without substantial assistance from outside resources (govt., etc.) in order to minimize the effects of that change on their current lifestyle. Over the last few years millions of Americans have lost their jobs, millions more have lost or face losing their home. There is a palpable feeling that politics, culture, and the basic fabric of society is continuing to unravel and with that comes increasing fear...

    For those legislating and regulating industry out of the country and reducing our living standard back to maybe 1800 to call themselves Progressives requires a sense of humor, but in a way, they're right. Closing Post-Classical civilization to move into a new era can be called progress, at least by some. Most in the newborn Western Christian era during its early Dark Ages might not have seen it as progress but we at the intended end of its flowering of wealth and technology certainly think of it that way. History leaves no doubt that civilizations rise and fall; the fall...

    As the murder trial gets under way Monday for the man accused of gunning down Wichita abortion provider George Tiller, the world will be watching. “This is a very, very high-profile trial,” said Kirk Longhofer, media coordinator for Sedgwick County District Court. “We’ve had as much, if not more, inquiry from national and even international media as any of the other big cases that have been tried here in the past 10 years.” Remember, that includes the trial of the BTK serial killer. Scott Roeder, 51, of Kansas City, is charged with first-degree murder in the May 31 shooting death...

    Mexican flag burned after week of protests Associated Press Mar. 31, 2006 07:10 AM Tensions over immigration got a little heated Thursday in Apache Junction. A Mexican flag was brought to school by a Hispanic student in response to what he said was a racist remark directed at him the day before. After he and other students raised the flag on the school's flagpole, the newspaper said another group of students took it down and burned it. The burning and ensuing shoving match between the two groups of students happened before most students arrived at the school. The school's principal...

    The Arizona Republic reports that authorities say vandals torched and toppled four 197-foot radio towers that are part of a seven-tower cluster in Black Canyon City, Arizona causing damage in the “millions of dollars.” Off the air because of the incident is Entravision’s KMIA-AM Phoenix, which broadcasts ESPN Deportes. Station manager Tom Duran said it could take "several weeks” for the station to get back on the air. Duran continued, "It's disheartening to know that somebody would do damage like this to a federally licensed facility.”

    The 2nd August at 11.00 AM in Moscow 23 members of the National-Bolshevik party forced their way into the building of the RF ministry of Health, protesting against the law on the replacement of social advantages with monetary compensations. The minister Zurabov’s reception room and some other offices of the ministry were captured. The national-bolsheviks protested against the so-called “monetization of advantages” and demanded the resignation of the RF government. Portraits of official individuals were thrown out of the ministry’s window into the street, including the portrait of president Putin. The national-bolsheviks who captured the building have scattered leaflets of...
  • Origin of “Direct Action” used by Leftists comes from Politics of 20th Century Muslim Movements

    Origin of “Direct Action” used by Leftists comes from Politics of 20th Century Muslim Movements A terminology among the left, the communists, socialists and their fellow travelers such as “Progressives” and “Democrats”, is the use of the term “direct action”. You will often hear this term used by the left, and especially of late. These are the same Leftists who march, arms-locked, “in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle”, communists and socialists gathered at protests which feature the usual suspects of speakers who are given top billing as “progressive” but include those, whom any intelligent person would consider the antithesis of...

By Jim Steinberg The Fresno Bee (Published Friday, January 17, 2003, 7:46 AM) A scheduled conference on revolutionary environmentalism next month at Fresno State has prompted Clovis police to advise concerned car dealers to consider hiring extra security. California State University, Fresno, emphasizes that the Feb. 13-14 conference is designed to consider the phenomenon of environmentalists' increasingly militant tactics, not to advocate those tactics. The university describes the conference as an examination of "a growing movement toward 'direct action' tactics, such as arson and property destruction, by environmental and animal-rights activists."...
