    The Spokesman-Review ^ | FEB. 15, 2017, | Blake Nicholson
    BISMARCK, N.D. – Federal and state officials announced plans Wednesday to accelerate cleanup at a camp in southern North Dakota that has housed hundreds and sometimes thousands of Dakota Access pipeline opponents. Officials fear the camp near the Cannonball River will soon flood due to warm weather and rapid snowmelt. They worry trash and debris left behind by people who have left in recent weeks might pollute the Missouri River and other nearby waterways. “With the amount of people that have been out there and the amount of estimated waste and trash out there, there is a good chance it...

    It's an odd world. Glamour magazine recently named the former Bruce Jenner as its Woman of the Year. {SNIP} If a person self-identifies as X, Y or Z, then he, she, ze or hir has to be what he, she, ze or hir professes to be. {SNIP} Which brings me to Hillary Clinton. {Snip} She’d be one with the idea that people have a “right” to be who they think they are and — this is not quite the same thing — have a right to be who they feel they are. This is a Euclidean axiom in the new...
  • The hypocrisy of Green

    05/20/2015 6:31:05 AM PDT · by Baynative · 9 replies ^ | 5/19/2015 | Lorraine Yapps Cohen
    “Green” started as the stand against pollution. To the “greenies,” that pollution seldom seemed small enough, especially when the pollutants were made by evil humans rather than by nature itself. Green is no more good for saving the environment than it is for protecting the people. Green wears the badge of hypocrisy. Being green requires minimizing pollutants in products, places, people, and the environment. But it depends on what is a pollutant and how little of it is little enough. The EPA, for example, has declared CO2 a pollutant, the invisible, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic substance that sustains all life on...
  • Romney Didn't Even Last a WEEK.

    As promised, Romney has folded on ObamaCare too, although had I wagered money on the timing, I would have thought that he would have lasted at least a week. But apparently the revenue curve from stupid, imbecilic suckers giving Romney money in the wake of the SCOTUS decision fell off hard enough that the Romney people felt that it served no more purpose to perpetuate the repeal charade. I hope every single one of you who gave that forked-tongued jackass money feel the full shame and embarrassment of your own gullibility and obtuseness. This slackjawed sentimentalism WILL BE THE DEATH...
  • Brock and the Glock: Armed men guarded Media Matters boss as he took $400,000 gun control donation

    The recent revelation that the head of Media Matters walked the streets of Washington with a Glock-toting bodyguard may make it a little awkward for the group the next time it seeks a donation from a gun control advocacy group. Media Matters reportedly took more than $400,000 from the Joyce Foundation specifically earmarked to promote a $600,000 initiative on "gun and public safety issues." At the same time, Media Matters' gun-guarded boss David Brock reportedly obsessed over his own security. ....Brock reportedly told confidantes that he feared for his safety and needed hired guns to keep him safe.

    Yesterday, at a Senate Banking Committee hearing, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., attacked U.S. companies that do business with Iran, singling out Koch Industries, despite the fact that Tester has taken money from companies that also did business with Iran. "Recently I heard that one of America's largest companies, Koch Industries, was in the business of supporting Iran through energy development. Um ... if they are doing there are probably others that are doing it," Tester said yesterday. Koch Industries issued the following statement in response to Tester's statement: Koch Industries voluntarily decided several years ago to stop sales to Iran,...
  • 'Two oil men' to blame for high gas prices, Pelosi says (2008)

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday blamed the "two oil men in the White House," President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, and their Republican allies in Congress for gas prices exceeding $4 a gallon. Pelosi, a California Democrat, said multiple initiatives intended to lower high energy costs have passed the Democratically controlled House only to "run into a brick wall" in the Senate because they did not receive the 60 votes needed to overcome Republican filibusters. "The price of oil is... is attributed to two oil men in the White House and their protectors in the United States Senate," Pelosi...

    Obama and his democrat thugs are making every effort to hamstring Republican fund raising efforts. The tools they are using for this purpose only add gasoline to the brightly burning fire of democrat hypocrisy. Obama has signaled that he once again will try to bypass Congress and out of thin air fabricate self-serving government rules to limit Republican fund raising. The Obama administration is considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections.

    During President Obama's Libyan War address, I was listening for one thing. While most Americans were already aware of what a madman Gaddafi was as well as the evil he was committed to perpetrating against his own people, what we weren't clear on was how a man who persistently derided the Iraq War as "dumb" could justify intervention in a less dangerous state like Libya. Like any good professor, President Obama didn't just come out and explain the distinction. He made us work to find it. And there, buried beneath a few extra helpings of his trademark verbosity, I heard...

    (CNN) -- A hard-line Iranian newspaper has called the French first lady a "prostitute" and recommended she be put to death for supporting a woman sentenced to death by stoning in Iran for adultery. Under the headline "French prostitutes enter the human rights uproar," the Kayhan daily newspaper referred Saturday to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy as a "prostitute" after she released an open letter in support of Sakineh Ashtiani, 43, a mother of two whose case has drawn international attention. Kayhan, a newspaper headed by a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reiterated those statements Tuesday, writing that, "this woman with...

    Pope Benedict XVI's outreach tour of the Middle East this week failed to placate critics still smarting from his riot-inciting comments in a 2006 speech at Germany's Regensburg University. The pontiff at that time quoted 15th-century Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Paleologus who said: "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." The pope said he regrets any hurt feelings, but some Muslims want more contrition. Sheik Yusef Abu Hussein, mufti of Karak in Jordan, said, "We...

    Any human being with a functioning conscience or a decent heart loathes torture. Its exercise has been a blight on humanity. With this in mind, those who oppose what the Bush administration did to some terror suspects may be justified. But in order to ascertain whether they are, they need to respond to some questions: 1. Given how much you rightly hate torture, why did you oppose the removal of Saddam Hussein, whose prisons engaged in far more hideous tortures, on thousands of times more people, than America did -- all of whom, moreover, were individuals and families who either...

IN THE past fortnight the leaders of the United States and Europe have announced one remarkable policy after another to save their financial institutions and system from ruin. The measures have to some extent stemmed the haemorrhage in the system, giving some breathing space to the banks and other institutions in many countries. In Iceland, however,...

    In the mid-1980s, The New York Times ran a profile of the American writer and activist Alice Walker. Her novel, The Color Purple, had won the Pulitzer prize and was being turned into a film by Steven Spielberg. The article was illustrated by a photograph of Walker sitting on her teenaged daughter’s knee. It was meant to be a “fun” picture; but, in retrospect, according to Rebecca Walker, the photographer unwittingly portrayed the true nature of her relationship with her mother. Alice Walker was, and remains, an icon of the American civil rights movement. “People adore her. I can’t tell...

    After promising unprecedented openness regarding Congress' pork barrel practices, House Democrats are moving in the opposite direction as they draw up spending bills for the upcoming budget year. ADVERTISEMENT Democrats are sidestepping rules approved their first day in power in January to clearly identify "earmarks" — lawmakers' requests for specific projects and contracts for their states. Rather than including specific pet projects, grants and contracts in legislation as it is being written, Democrats are following an order by the House Appropriations Committee chairman to keep the bills free of such earmarks until it is too late for critics to effectively...

    The subjection of women in Muslim societies--especially in Arab nations and in Iran--is today very much in the public eye. Accounts of lashings, stonings, and honor killings are regularly in the news, and searing memoirs by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Azar Nafisi have become major best-sellers. One might expect that by now American feminist groups would be organizing protests against such glaring injustices, joining forces with the valiant Muslim women who are working to change their societies. This is not happening. If you go to the websites of major women's groups, such as the National Organization for Women, the Ms....

    Australians used to speak of their "cultural cringe" - a tendency to internalize what they supposed to be the British view that all things Australian are backward and provincial. This colonial residue lingered after many decades of independent achievement. Republicans today suffer from a moral cringe which makes them internalize the Democrat view that whenever anything goes wrong Republicans are at fault. Between 1932 and 1994 the GOP was the ninety-seven pound weakling of our national politics, and Republicans retain some of the servile self-criticism they learned in those years.

Gibson's drunken remarks about "(expletive) Jews" being responsible for "all the wars in the world," which the actor made to a Los Angeles sheriff's deputy who pulled him over on July 28, were "hurtful and unfortunate" (James Dobson), "reprehensible . . . shameful" (the Rev.

The conference, which was originally sponsored by the Ford, Rockefeller and Nathan Cummings Foundations, came under attack due to the fact that more than 8 of the 21 academics invited to participate in the conference publicly support boycotts of Israeli universities. Another decisive revelation that led to the postponement of the conference was that material distributed prior to the conference included an anti-Semitic paper by a Holocaust denier. Following the revelation concerning the anti-Semitic material,...

    Bennett's Critics Prefer to Misunderstand Him Until we were so rudely interrupted by President Bush's latest Supreme Court pick, we were having an illuminating squabble over Bill Bennett. And since Bennett's remarks on his radio show have already morphed into something of an urban legend in many quarters, I think they're worth revisiting. A quick recap: Bennett got a call from a listener suggesting that Social Security was in financial straights because so many taxpayers had been aborted after Roe vs. Wade. The caller was making an ostensibly pro-life point. But Bennett, also a pro-lifer, objected. That's not the way...

    Feds cowards on gay marriage Ducked issue by leaving it with courts THE TORONTO SUN Sun, January 23, 2005 Lorrie Goldstein Senior Associate Editor In his latest argument in favour of same sex-marriages, Prime Minister Paul Martin has described it as a "Charter right". In other words, legalizing gay and lesbian unions, Martin now argues, is a basic issue of protecting minorities from discrimination, as guaranteed by Section 15 of the Charter of Rights. There's only one problem. Nowhere in Section 15 do the words "sexual orientation" appear. When the Charter was passed by Parliament in 1982, it specifically protected...
  • Soccer: What does this warrior's salute really mean? (Italy)

    Do the cameras tell us lies? Italian policemen, magistrates and soccer officials are examining images to determine whether Paolo Di Canio should face criminal charges for stirring old fascist leanings with his celebration of a victory for SS Lazio over AS Roma in the febrile Roman "derby" contest last Thursday. The so-called Roman salute - stiff right arm and flat palm - that this appears to be was not, according to Di Canio and his agents, at all a political gesture, and certainly not intended as incitement to the known neo-fascist faction of hard-core Lazio fanatics in the north stand...

    A good friend of mine just sent this to me and...I'm rather beside myself at the sheer amount of hate, hypocricy and insanity that this "article" professes. The fact that any friend of mine (or any person in general, really) could actually agree with any of these rambling, incoherent statements is really just a sign of how looney politics makes people. Apparently we can't quote text from this website ( - a tech site that for some reason dabbles in politics), so you'll have to click the link to see what I'm talking about...I started to refute the claims made...

    "John Kerry is the number one Senate recipient of banker donations over the past 15 years, and his attacks today are completely hypocritical. This is another example of Kerry’s willingness to say one thing and do another. If John Kerry really cared about bank customers, he wouldn’t have skipped the vote on the fair credit legislation that the President signed to ensure fair treatment of credit applicants and to prevent identity theft." -Steve Schmidt, Bush-Cheney '04 Spokesman Kerry On The FACT Act:Kerry Skipped The Vote On The Fair And Accurate Credit Transactions Act Of 2003.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - At one point during last week's Republican leadership gathering in Chicago, the debate over conservative activist Alan Keyes grew so contentious that journalists standing outside the closed doors heard - and reported - the shouting. The Illinois Republican State Central Committee later barred reporters from the entire floor where they were meeting to choose their party's new candidate for the U.S. Senate. But with Keyes' candidacy likely to become official Sunday, it will be much tougher for Republican leaders to hide the internal strife in their divided party. On Wednesday night the committee formally asked Keyes -...

    Airing Grievances A new radio ad sponsored by the union representing Boston Globe employees, who are in their 38th month without a contract, takes the labor dispute to a new level by comparing the newspaper to corporate villains Enron and Global Crossing and by holding the Globe 's previous editorial positions against it. "The Globe should live up to its own words," says the radio spot, the latest of several taken out by the newspaper's employees. It says the paper should "treat workers by the same standards it calls on others to follow in its editorials." About 1,200 white- and...
