    The American Thinker ^ | November 28, 2015 | Mike Konrad
    Unlike the revolution started by the printing press which soon stabilized, internet changes are not merely drastic but continually accelerating.The internet has changed everything, so much so that even I, a man who has been online for 19 years, am constantly amazed at the pace of accelerated change. The printing press changed the world in a few decades in the 16th century. The internet is even more revolutionary. Even more so than the press, the internet has evaporated prior means of didactic instruction. The printing press created change, but only the rich could afford to buy one. For less than...
  • NSA to shut down bulk phone surveillance program on Sunday-two and a half years after it was exposed

    The move, mandated by a law passed six months ago, represents the greatest reduction of U.S. spying capabilities since they expanded dramatically after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Under the Freedom Act, the NSA and law enforcement agencies can no longer collect telephone-calling records in bulk in an effort to sniff out suspicious activity. Such records, known as 'metadata,' reveal which numbers Americans are calling and what time they place those calls, but not the content of the conversations. Instead analysts must now get a court order to ask telecommunications companies like Verizon Communications to enable monitoring of call records...

    ...........Yes, everything is different, now, for elite Democrats. As we have seen, they are inspired by the EU. And as we have also seen, they no longer worry about worker's wages-and that only makes sense, because the two big magnetic poles of the new Democratic coalition, Al Sharpton and George Soros, are both oblivious to wages. Why? Because Sharpton's core constituents aren't in the workforce; they make their living through welfare, not work. And as for Soros and his fellow billionaires, they couldn't be bothered to think about anything as microscopic as a mere wage. Meanwhile, Democratic politicos believe that...

    The Last Refuge blog (also known as The Conservative Treehouse) has done yeoman's work exposing the GOP establishment's plot to jam Jeb Bush down the collective throats of the electorate. Despite Bush's single-digit poll numbers, the GOPe remains fixated on a Bush candidacy (and, by extension, a Hillary presidency, since Bush has zero chance of winning a general election). Most recently, Virginia's old guard has proffered a laughably obvious ploy to deter independent, Tea Party, Reagan Democrat, and Constitutional Conservatives who have abandoned the Republican establishment from voting in the GOP primary....

    TOKYO (AFP) - Japan scrambled jets after 11 Chinese military planes flew near southern Japanese islands during what Beijing said was a drill to improve its long-range combat abilities, reports said Saturday. The planes -- eight bombers, two intelligence gathering planes and one early-warning aircraft -- flew near Miyako and Okinawa on Friday without violating Japan's airspace, the Japanese defence ministry said in a statement released on Friday. Some of them flew between the two islands while others made flights close to neighbouring islands, the ministry said. A Chinese air force spokesman said several types of planes, including H-6K bombers,...

    In the most recent Quinnipiac Iowa poll, Senator Ted Cruz surprised analysts by coming in second to Donald Trump with 23% of likely caucus goers support. The ascendancy of Cruz in Iowa can be contributed to two primary factors. First, that Rubio and Carson supporters are not securely in the tent for those candidates. Secondly, the terror attacks in Paris and the return of foreign policy to the forefront of the campaign. Ted Cruz, having refused to attack his fellow candidates, has not angered those who currently have different favorites, nor has he done anything to hurt anyone’s favorite candidate...

Turkey could only have shot down a Russian Su-24 military jet after securing permission from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), charged Lebanon's Druze leader Walid Jumblatt in an exclusive interview with Breitbart. The Turks cannot afford to shoot down a Russian plane, being a member of NATO, without asking the permission of NATO. They have to ask NATO. It's NATO, said Jumblatt, a member of parliament and leader of Lebanon's Progressive Socialist Party. Jumblatt is considered the leader of Lebanon's historic...

    ...the fact is that Erdogan's regime has on many occasions turned a blind eye to ISIS activity in Turkey, as well as to Turkish businessmen and smugglers doing trade deals with the jihadist butchers. To be fair, on the surface, Turkey's president is fully involved in the fight against ISIS. In October he allowed U.S. jets to use Turkey's Incirlik air base for operations against ISIS, pledging that his forces, too, would join the fight. But the truth is that Turkey's planes have aimed their missiles almost exclusively at the one army which poses a real threat to ISIS, and...

    Now that we’ve seen the text of the TransPacific Partnership, aka Obamatrade, we can say it’s even worse than we imagined. President Obama and his willing dupes in Congress, including Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, claim this is a “free-trade” deal. The truth is, it’s not free and it isn’t even about trade. Obamatrade is a cartel of, by and for the crony capitalists designed to protect their monopoly interests, erect steep barriers of entry on a global scale and put upstarts out of business. It also puts the U.S. Constitution in the dead letter file. Sen. Jeff Sessions warned...

The THC chemical acts on cannabinoid receptors which the corpus callosum contains. The team utilized two scanning methods to examine the corpus callosum in the brains of 56 patients who reportedly experienced a first episode of psychosis, and 43 healthy participants from the local community. One method required the use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) while the...

Europeans and Latin Americans sponsoring the resolution could not be swayed, and insisted throughout the weeks leading up to the vote that the resolution on children must contain a specific prescription for “comprehensive evidence-based education on human sexuality,” and no alternative would satisfy them. Delegations implored the sponsors of the resolution to show “sensitivity” and to recognize the lack of consensus to no avail as they...

    Why should be we worried about a polarity flip? The magnetic field protects us from harmful solar radiations and cosmic rays. If these start fading away, it may affect every living creature on Earth. An increase in radiation exposure may not only lead to serious health outcomes, but also some genetic disorders could occur. Some biologists even fear that direct exposure to harmful solar radiations may result in mass extinctions. Not only could some severe health consequence fallow the weakening of magnetic field. In a less concerning outcome, but still very worrisome it could lead to a severe disturbance in...

"If this was a targeting of Planned Parenthood it would be the latest in a string of attacks on abortion providing facilities or on doctors who work with them." If it was, you see.

Wages and salaries shot up 0.6%, the largest increase since May. The increase matched expectations. That rate of change illustrates acceleration from the 0.2 percent increase in September, but falls in line with the rate of change throughout the summer of 2015, indicating little hint of a strong acceleration in wage growth. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) increased $15.2 billion, or 0.1 percent, consistent with the previous month....

    The Republican establishment is nearing full-blown panic about Donald Trump. The demise of Trump's candidacy has been predicted by centrist Republicans and the media alike virtually since the day it began. But there is no empirical evidence at all to suggest it is happening. Last month, the liberal ThinkProgress collated more than 30 predictions of the business mogul's imminent demise. One typical example was The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart, who discerned "the beginning of the end of Trump" in mid-July, soon after the mogul criticized the Vietnam War record of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) Despite all that, Trump has led...

And he managed to publish his results, “Corporate funding and ideological polarization about climate change,” in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.What do you think his conclusions were? Perhaps that thirty years of failed temperature predictions boosted Americans’ skepticism? Or that the obvious eagerness of politicians to leverage exaggerated fears have left many skittish? Or...

    After Donald Trump in recent weeks suggested stepping up security measures to put further scrutiny on Muslim Americans, such as surveilling mosques, liberals and conservatives alike called his ideas fascist. But in case those critiques didn't get the point across, some politicians and pundits are now making a more direct connection between Trump's views and Nazism. Donald Trump: "I want surveillance of certain mosques" For instance, New Day for America, the super PAC supporting the candidacy of Ohio's GOP Gov. John Kasich, released a web video this week featuring retired Air Force Col. Tom Moe, a former Vietnam POW. Moe...

    The University of Denver's branch of Students for Justice in Palestine decided to build a new website in order to disseminate its call for a boycott of Israel. However, the creators of the website failed to realize that the company they used to build the site, Wix, is an Israeli company that provides a free platform for web development.

  • (August 21, 2014) Why Muslim Terrorists Don’t Kidnap Russians

    Terrorists use terrorism because it works, although not against everybody. The Soviet Union’s flaws were without number, but the effete, obsequious squeamishness that characterizes the current American approach to Islam was not among them. From 1986: The Jerusalem Post said the Soviet secret police last year secured the release of three kidnaped Soviet diplomats in Beirut by castrating a relative of a radical Lebanese Shia Muslim leader, sending him the severed organs and then shooting the relative in the head. The incident began when four Soviet diplomats were kidnaped last September by Muslim extremists who demanded that Moscow pressure the...

    Walmart workers were scarce at the much-hyped Black Friday protests against the retailer's wages and employment policies. Even protesters who didn't work at the stores were hard to find. An estimated 50 people showed up at a store in East Green Brush, N.Y., to protest the firing of Walmart employee Thomas Smith earlier this month. Thomas was allegedly let go for redeeming $2 worth of cans and bottles left behind in a shopping cart. Walmart said he was fired because Smith had failed to disclose his prior criminal history when he was hired, a claim Thomas disputed. A group of...

    More than a century ago, in his collection of lectures titled Life and Destiny, professor and ethicist Felix Adler reflected on what the lives of the deceased can teach the living: Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting. And let the memory of our dead help us to do this. For they are not wholly separated from us, if we remain loyal to them. In spirit they are with us. And we may think of them as silent and invisible, but real presences in our households. All across Poland, more than...

It uses polling data and input from its 25,000 users to predict outcomes. Play the Political Prediction Market at Movement on the...
