    Progressive golden boy Justin Trudeau showed his authoritarian colors on Wednesday as he threw a temper tantrum in Canada's legislature, grabbing one member of Parliament and elbowing a female member in the breast. Why? Trudeau was upset that opposition MPs had taken a few moments longer than he liked to begin voting on a key piece of his legislative agenda. Trudeau's Liberal government had made a motion to shut down debate on a bill that would allow assisted suicide in Canada. Opposition MPs on both sides of the issue claim the government bill is flawed and needs more debate and...

At least one person was killed and 37 others injured near the Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Sunday night, authorities said. Authorities said the woman was driving down Las Vegas Boulevard before her car jumped onto the sidewalk and struck pedestrians. She returned to the sidewalk at different spots and hit more people before barreling down the road, according to witnesses.

    The IDF launched extensive airstrikes in Gaza on Monday night, hitting more than 30 targets in the Hamas-controlled region. The IDF said in a statement that 34 terrorist targets throughout the region were targeted in the strikes. The statement noted that the airstrikes were in retaliation for rocket fire on southern Israel. “The IDF will continue to act decisively and as necessary against any party, until peace and the normal lives of the residents of the State of Israel are restored,” said the statement, which placed the responsibility for the rocket fire on Hamas and its different branches. Earlier Monday...
  • VA Scandal And Socialist Medicine

    05/20/2014 4:47:34 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 13 replies
    By now most of you have heard of the growing VA scandal in which veterans were placed on waiting lists by bureaucrats with the express intention that they die. Bureaucrats actually got bonuses based on cutting down the waiting list. What better way to cut down the list than to deny medical care to the sickest people? When did Obama find out about this mess within the executive branch he is head of? By media reports of course! This seems to be how Obama finds out about bad news in his administration. No one tells him, he has to read...

    Mark Levin spent his first 2 opening segments exposing the lies behind the attacks on the Tea Party by the Republican Establishment, noting in summary were it not for the tea party, Nancy Pelosi would still be Speaker of the House. But more than that, Levin explains why the Establishment is fighting so hard agains the Tea Party: These “Republican leaders” only want to be in the majority if they can control the people we send to Congress. Mitch McConnell does not want anymore Ted Cruzes or Mike Lees or anybody else who’s going to give him trouble. He wants...

    Nuclear fusion hits energy milestone Total energy input still far higher than output For the first time, fuel for a nuclear fusion reaction has generated more energy than put into it – a scientific milestone. Scientists and futurists have long dreamed of harnessing the energy of nuclear fusion, which powers the sun, here on Earth. An enormous amount of energy is released when multiple atoms collide and fuse to form a new, heavier atom — such as hydrogen fusing into helium. Hydrogen fuel is plentiful in sources such as seawater and the fusion process generates no radioactive waste, greenhouse gases...

    An Earthquake registering 5.8 on the Richter Scale violently hits Turkey, Egypt, and Cyprus and it was reported to have happened at 3:21 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The center of the earthquake appears to be just off the coastline of Turkey, South to SSW from Antalya. The quake was felt as far away as Egypt where the tremors also reached 5.8 on the Richter Scale. Cyprus, which is 195 miles away from the quakes center also reported 5.8 scale tremors. Egypt, which is 695 miles away, reported the same Richter Scale measurement at the same time that the report was...

    Twelve weeks from today, the US government will hit its borrowing limit. When Congress lifted the debt ceiling last month, for the first time ever, it pegged the increase to a specific date, rather than a dollar amount. The current borrowing authority expires in just 84 days, on February 7th.

    The IDF fired warning shots into Syrian territory on Sunday after a mortar shell fired from Syria hit an IDF outpost in the Golan Heights. The incident follows a similar spillover from Syria on Thursday, when a shell from Syria exploded in Moshav Alonei Habashan. "Further attacks [from Syria] will illicit a vigorous response," the IDF Spokesman's Office stated. The military also sent a letter to the United Nations warning Syrian forces to be careful in avoiding fire into the Golan. Just hours earlier, Defense Minister Ehud Barak threatened that Israel would respond should stray Syrian ordnance continue to strike...

    ABOVE: Jamaal Uddin was pictured putting up Sharia controlled zone stickers in Walthamstow. HARDCORE Islamists have vowed to ban booze and mixing between the sexes in new Sharia law enforcement zones across the UK. The move will see specific areas flooded with thousands of stickers saying "no gambling", "no music or concerts", "no porn or prostitution" and "no drugs or smoking". The posters declare: "You are entering a Sharia controlled zone - Islamic rules enforced." The radicals will kick off their controlled zones in the London borough of Waltham Forest later this month. They also claim their hardline rules will...

"US hip-hop diplomacy hits speed bump in Pakistan," by Sebastian Abbot for the Associated Press, November 16: ISLAMABAD (AP) — A U.S. attempt to smooth relations with Pakistan using a bit of hip-hop diplomacy hit a speed bump Wednesday when the Pakistani military briefly detained an American music group accused of taking photographs of sensitive installations. The F.E.W. Collective, a hip-hop group from Chicago on a U.S.-sponsored tour of Pakistan, was traveling in embassy...

    On Sean Hannity’s radio show Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry defended himself against attacks that he is “dumb,” claiming what is really dumb is how the U.S. economy has worsened under President Obama. “It’s kind of the same old attacks they made on [Ronald] Reagan and I guess every prominent, effective conservative,” Perry told Hannity’s audience. “And the better we do down here in Texas, the more they are going to attack us. That’s fine.” “I think my record is going to stand the scrutiny of time across the country,” Perry added, noting Texas’ economic strength. His state has created...
