    IRVINE (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say they’ve uncovered a massive international sex trafficking ring in Southern California. Prosecutors announced the arrest of four people connected to the Orange County-based enterprise that allegedly placed thousands of ads for sexual services in 29 states over the past two years. The ring was based locally in Irvine, officials said. Women and girls from China were forced to sell themselves for sex and sometimes forced to work 14 hours a day in homes purchased specifically for the purposes of prostitution, according to authorities. Investigators tracked the ring through thousands of ads selling sex on Backpage.com....

    Guest Essay By Larry Kummer. Posted at the Fabius Maximus website. Summary: To boost our fear, activists and journalists report the weather with amnesia about the past. Ten year records become astonishing events; weather catastrophes of 50 or 100 years ago are forgotten. It makes for good clickbait but cripples our ability to prepare for the inevitable. California’s history of floods and droughts gives a fine example — if we listen to the US Geological Survey’s reminder of past megafloods, and their warning of the coming ARkStorm. ” A 43-day storm that began in December 1861 put central and southern...
  • DAVID ROSE: How can we trust global warming scientists if they keep twisting the truth

    They were duped – and so were we. That was the conclusion of last week’s damning revelation that world leaders signed the Paris Agreement on climate change under the sway of unverified and questionable data. A landmark scientific paper –the one that caused a sensation by claiming there has been NO slowdown in global warming since 2000 – was critically flawed. And thanks to the bravery of a whistleblower, we now know that for a fact. The response has been extraordinary, with The Mail on Sunday’s disclosures reverberating around the world. There have been nearly 150,000 Facebook ‘shares’ since last...

    The Left's Long War is far from over, we see it now more than ever being exposed and played out not only in this nation, but on the world stage as well. With each battle they are losing ground, but they are not down and out Have you asked yourself how we got to the point that the nation got so divided? The long war strategy of the Left gives us the clues to unpack just how we have arrived to the point that the nation brinks on social unrest.

    New York Times ^ | December 26, 2016 | Henry Fountain
    Foreign governments concerned about climate change may soon be spending more time dealing with Sacramento than Washington. President-elect Donald J. Trump has packed his cabinet with nominees who dispute the science of global warming. He has signaled he will withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. He has belittled the notion of global warming and attacked policies intended to combat it. But California — a state that has for 50 years been a leader in environmental advocacy — is about to step unto the breach. In a show of defiance, Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, and legislative leaders...

    Mauna Kea, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The snowfall has eased up slightly on the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on the Big Island, but another foot of snow is still possible Sunday. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect through through Sunday night for elevations above 8,000 feet. The watch replaces the Winter Storm Warning, which was cancelled Saturday morning. Deep tropical moisture which brought heavy snow to the summits and torrential downpours at lower elevations on the island is moving to the north. However, a light dusting of snow is possible Saturday before another storm system moves in...
  • Elon Musk’s SpaceX to launch 4,000 satellites for global Internet coverage

    Washington Journal ^ | 11/17/16 | Daniel Navas
    Elon Musk has announced an ambitious plan to put more than 4,000 satellites in space to create a global high-speed internet network. Musk first turned his attention to internet satellites in 2014, and his plan soon received the backing of Google, which chucked $1bn at Space Exploration Technologies Corp, aka SpaceX. Musk said in January 2015 that the plan would cost at least $10bn. The original number of satellites was pinned at 700, but documents filed with the US Federal Communications Commission show that SpaceX wants to deploy 4,425 satellites, plus “in-orbit spares”, to provide high-speed, global internet coverage. Earth...

    OUR NATION’S Founders elected not to restrict the Constitution’s fundamental guarantees to just one generation. Instead, they aimed to “establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” They took account of future generations by establishing an enduring guide to those principles most relevant to our nation’s fundamental challenges, including those arising centuries after the Constitution’s signing. Our nation’s outsized role in causing dangerous climate change presents such a fundamental problem.

    Following the World Economic Forum's wrap up of its recent annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, U.S. policymakers should return with strategies for strengthening America's economic growth and augmenting our global competitiveness. A pessimism for global economic growth was a pervasive mood among CEOs at Davos, and the U.S. can demonstrate leadership by adopting some critical policy prescriptions to accelerate growth. They should begin with lowering America's corporate tax rate - currently the highest among the OECD and BRIC countries at 39 percent (combined federal and state) - and reducing the excessive regulations that hamper innovation, stifle productivity, and exhaust capital...

    Humans may evolve bizarre features such as webbed feet and eyes like cats in response to changing environments, a scientist claims today. Experts calculated how our physical appearance could change under a number of scenarios, including a ‘water world’ if melting ice caps cause rising sea levels. They also considered what would happen in a second ice age which could be triggered by an asteroid strike, and if humans colonised other planets.

    The Daily Caller (11/17, Follett) reports that according to Representative Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, NASA's dedication toward climate research has reduced the funding available for its planetary science and exploration efforts. In an email to the Daily Caller News Foundation, Smith stated, "The Obama administration has consistently tried to cut NASA's space exploration budgets in order to fund increases for Earth science programs," adding, "Just this year, the president proposed drastically cutting NASA's exploration systems by more than $440 million dollars while Earth Science accounts have increased by 63 percent over the...

    Vatican City (AFP) - Bishops launched a global appeal Monday for a breakthrough at upcoming Paris climate talks, including a "complete decarbonisation" of the world's economy and more help for poor countries battling the effects of climate change. The bishops said any agreement "should limit global temperature increases to avoid catastrophic climatic impacts, especially on the most vulnerable communities". From across five continents they called "not only for 'drastic reduction in the emission of carbon dioxide and other toxic gasses', but also for ending the fossil fuel era". The goal should be "complete decarbonisation by mid-century, in order to protect...

    Millions of people in the United States could be forced to abandon their homes if planet-warming emissions continue unabated through 2100, pushing global sea levels up by more than 14 feet (4.2 meters), researchers said. In the United States, between 20 and 31 million people are living on land that would be submerged by rising oceans without aggressive cuts to greenhouse gas emissions, according to a study published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
  • Global sea levels climbed 3 inches since 1992, NASA research shows

    Yahoo News ^ | 8/26/15 | Irene Klotz -Reuters
    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fl. (Reuters) - Sea levels worldwide rose an average of nearly 3 inches (8 cm) since 1992, the result of warming waters and melting ice, a panel of NASA scientists said on Wednesday. In 2013, a United Nations panel predicted sea levels would rise from 1 to 3 feet (0.3 to 0.9 meters) by the end of the century. The new research shows that sea level rise most likely will be at the high end of that range, said University of Colorado geophysicist Steve Nerem. Sea levels are rising faster than they did 50 years ago and “it’s...

    The gun used during the attempted terror attack on the “Draw Muhammad” event in Texas may have been bought from the Arizona store linked to Fast and Furious. Los Angeles Times broke the news yesterday which also included the nugget that Nadir Soofi’s purchase was known by the federal government (emphasis mine). Soofi’s attempt to buy a gun caught the attention of authorities, who slapped a seven-day hold on the transaction, according to his Feb. 24, 2010, firearms transaction record, which was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, the hold was lifted after...
