  • New York Times January Wiretapping Headline Goes Viral

    You have probably seen the image below of the New York Times January 20 headline. It has gone viral on web and renders absurd the current denials by the Times and much of the rest of the mainstream media that there was no wiretapping of the Donald Trump campaign by the Obama administration. No, there won't be a document out there signed by former President Obama that says something like "I hereby authorize the wiretapping of the Trump campaign." There doesn't need to be. The headline and its January 19 article makes very clear that the previous administration did secretly...

  • Newt Gingrich: White Americans ‘Don’t Understand Being Black in America’

    07/08/2016 9:53:41 AM PDT · by Cecily · 323 replies
    Never let it be said that Newt Gingrich is predictable. As the political world waits to see if the former Georgia congressman and U.S. House speaker gets tapped to be Donald Trump’s running mate, Gingrich teamed up with his former Crossfire partner Van Jones to discuss this week’s shootings in Dallas, Baton Rouge and Minnesota. Speaking on Facebook Live, Gingrich was his typically direct self. But, in this age of polarized politics, whether it be of the electoral or racial variety, Gingrich’s comments were also remarkable. Here is the key quote: “It took me a long time, and a number...

    Dayton City Paper ^ | August 20, 2013 | Mark Luedtke
    America’s Founding Fathers fought a war to put an end to England’s taxation of the American colonies without allowing the colonists representation in the English Parliament. Today, Americans gleefully tax others without representation. In a practically secret election on Aug. 6, Butler Township residents created two new Joint Economic Development Districts (JEDDs) to tax non-residents. Why raise taxes on yourself when you can vote to raise them on people who can’t vote to stop you?The Dayton Daily News reported, “The business district passed 1,158 to 616 with a total vote of 1,774 and the hotel district passed 1,159 to 611...

    Big Journalism ^ | 5/23/12 | John Nolte
    Monday, Politico's "media analyst" Dylan Byers's posted what at first glance looked like bad news for radio talk show giant Rush Limbaugh, who has been the target of a boycott after apologizing for comments he made about about pay-for-my-birth-control crusader Sandra Fluke. Byer's headline reads: "Limbaugh takes post-Fluke ratings hit." According to Paul Bond's reporting at the Hollywood Reporter, there's only one problem with Byers' headline: it isn't true. Byers: Rush Limbaugh took a significant ratings hit in some key radio markets last month in the wake of the Sandra Fluke controversy.
  • Gingrich Turns Fire on Santorum

    Just days after praising his rival GOP presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich took aim at Rick Santorum’s congressional record and said he would be considered the “junior partner” in a match-up between the two Republican hopefuls. “If you think of us as partners, he would clearly in historical experience have been the junior partner,” Gingrich said Thursday on the campaign trail. “He’s not a bad person, I want to be clear about this, but I don’t know that he has any track record of being able to organize a large-scale campaign.”

    Stop the presses. Barely did we have time to report that European regulators failed to impose a coordinated short selling ban, that Bloomberg reports that the countries most impact by the market plunge are about to impose standalone short-selling bans. These are Belgium, Italy, Spain and France. In other words, it really is on and the 2008 Lehman PTSD flashbacks may now resume. Until we get a headline that says it isn't. The rescue of the Borsa Italian is now more schizophrenic than that of Greece. As a reminder, in the previous post the FT quoted Abraham Lioui, a professor...

    Interior Secretary Ken Salazar lied in order to give political cover for Obama administration’s arbitrary six-month moratorium on deep-water oil drilling. The Wall Street Journal breaks the news on its editorial page: In the wake of the oil spill, President Obama asked Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to produce a report on new drilling safety recommendations. Then on May 27 Mr. Obama announced a six-month deep water drilling ban, justifying it on the basis of Mr. Salazar’s report, a top recommendation of which was the moratorium. To lend an air of technical authority, the report noted: “The recommendations contained in this...

    "Conclusion: Sarah Palin Speaks Like A Toddler." Such is the title of a Mediaite piece published Tuesday which badly cherry-picked a rather comprehensive analysis of the former Alaska governor's speech patterns. To make her demeaning point about Palin, author Glynnis MacNicol offered her readers a grand total of six sentences from John McWhorter's 2500-word piece published at The New Republic.

    Coal may be the dirty man of the energy world, but it isn't the only fossil fuel trying to clean up its act. A Canadian startup says that it has developed a way to strip carbon out of methane, resulting in hydrogen-enriched natural gas that burns cleaner and more efficiently. Atlantic Hydrogen, based in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, is betting that its "greener" natural gas will appeal to utilities and industrial customers looking to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions under an impending cap-and-trade regime. But an added financial benefit would come from the powdery carbon black that's extracted from the...
