  • Scandals pile pressure on Spain’s Sánchez to call early election

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez faces growing pressure from within his Socialist Party to call an early election, before scandals besetting his four-month-old minority government undermine a surge in voter support. Riding high in the polls, Sánchez aims to serve a full term to mid-2020 as he focuses on approving next year’s budget and countering renewed independence moves in the Catalonia region. But last week, his science minister was forced to deny media reports he cheated on his taxes, days after a recording emerged of the justice minister using a homophobic slur. Two other ministers have already been pushed out,...

    (Richard) Ramirez was a serial killer who terrorized the populations of Los Angeles and San Francisco from June of 1984 to August of 1985, claiming 14 victims. The crimes were huge news at the time. Few Americans had seen anything like it in their lifetimes. Ramirez was so aggressive and cocky, scrawling pentagrams on walls in victims’ homes and even making his final known rape victim swear allegiance to Satan. The public was desperate to see him captured. By July of 1985, Ramirez had already committed some 13 murders, 5 rapes including sodomy, and 3 attempted murders, yet it seemed...
  • Geology professor: NC beaches, beach homes 'doomed' due to climate change

    "These beaches are doomed." Those are the sobering words from Duke University geology professor emeritus Orrin Pilkey, who told our media partners at the News & Observer that the days are numbered for North Carolina's beaches. "The buildings are doomed, too," he said. Pilkey, who is also the founder and director emeritus of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University, has been sounding the alarm about rising sea levels for decades. Pilkey said rising sea levels are an imminent threat to North Carolina's 18 barrier islands and to the Inner Banks, the areas just behind...
  • Wait–This Is Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Shut Down The Press At A Town Hall Event?

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a rising star in the Democratic Party, but also its far left flank. Some have called her the future. You can take that as a bad thing, given that her agenda will cost us tens of trillions of dollars over the next decade; the three-decade projection soar into hundreds of trillions ($218 trillion to be exact), or view that as a sign of GOP wins for the next decade due to voters suffering from the sticker shock. Her inability to grasp basic economics also doesn’t work in her favor. Still, she gained prominence to clipping incumbent Democratic...

    I recently participated in an email chain with conservative writers and thinkers on the inexhaustible subject of Donald Trump. Some of my correspondents, while supporting Trump as a political champion, regretted his "coarseness." He is, they alleged, rather too crude and rough hewn to comport with their ideal of proper presidential stature. Now I can understand that if Trump behaved like Hillary, prone to hysterics, outrageous and mendacious attacks on opponents, and perpetual grievance-mongering, one might regard him as unmannerly, unstable, and preposterous, as a truly "coarse" human being with a crippling behavior problem. If he had bevies of mistresses...

    I would just like to say thanks for one night of Fredo Chris Cuomo asking a few tough questions to the biggest idiot on the face of the Earth... Nancy Pelosi. Please watch the entire interview. Inot only exhibits why there should be term limits, it exemplifies that inside every Democrat there is a tyrant. The Democrat playbook is playing out very badly and Nancy is showing why. She quipped and shut down a CNN host that we’re all pretty sure gave her the answers to his questions before hand. For one night, Fredo showed up. Pleas watch as an...

    MANCHESTER — A judge has ended efforts to reinstate a domestic-violence prosecution against Augustin Bahati, the Congolese refugee deemed culturally incompetent to stand trial earlier this year. Circuit Court Judge Kimberly Chabot said she wouldn’t grant city prosecutors a do-over of the case and dismissed the misdemeanor charges against Bahati, 33: four counts of domestic violence and one of sexual assault. The city’s top prosecutor on Tuesday ruled out an appeal. “All I can say is we made a decision not to appeal,” said acting City Solicitor Emily Rice. The Bahati case came to light in late June, when New...

    When Donald J. Trump rode down that elevator in Trump Tower with his wife at his side to announce that he was running for POTUS, I told my wife he will get the nomination and will soundly beat Hillary Clinton, which is exactly what he did, He actually won more states then he did because of the heavy illegal voting of Democrats. That truth is surfacing right now. Fact is, Hillary Clinton was the worst POTUS candidate the Democrats ever nominated. Bottom line, Clinton is an Empty Suit from top of her head to the tip of her toes. Her...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order late Friday halting demonstrations at Lee Monument in Richmond for the next 90 days. That order violates the First Amendment. “In spite of weeks of preparation, the city of Charlottesville was the target of an act of domestic terrorism that cost one woman her life, and had a helicopter accident lead to the deaths of two state troopers,” McAuliffe said in a statement that accompanied the executive order:

    It appears that GOP leaders might actually be completely unfit to be calling the shots in Washington. Everyone in America knows that the Republican Party has control of the White House, the Senate, and House of Representatives, yet there is still serious talk about an impending government shutdown. Earlier today, President Trump tweeted that America needed a “good shutdown” to fix the ailments in Washington. The people of this nation are considerably frustrated by the gridlock and inability of Republicans to make progress with matters like healthcare, the spending bill, tax reform, etc. Placing the blame on Democrats won’t work...
  • Beyond the Kruger-Dunning Effect (Erdogan's Turkey or Obama's US? EXPLAINED)

    Washington Hatti ^ | 2-25-17 | Abraham Thicke
    The Kruger-Dunning effect refers to the inability of incompetent individuals to accurately assess their own competence. It was first discovered by two psychologists, you can guess their names, who asked students to predict their exam scores before taking the exam. Whilst students gaining high marks accurately predicted their scores, low scoring students grossly overestimated how well they would perform. The phenomenon, replicated many times, is usually explained in terms of metacognitive abilities. Since these skills are critical for both gaining and assessing competence, people with low levels of metacognitive ability are doubly cursed. The Kruger Dunning effect is surprisingly resistant...

I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”

Miller continued: ...

    You just can’t make this up… The Smoking Gun reported: The FBI’s Hillary Clinton investigation turned up evidence that her e-mail accounts were targeted in multiple “spear phishing” attacks, one of which may have tricked the then-Secretary of State into clicking a malicious link included in the correspondence. An FBI investigative report released today includes a section on the “cyber targeting” of Clinton’s “personal E-mail and Associated Accounts” during her tenure at the State Department. Though riddled with redactions, the FBI report reveals that Clinton became concerned about the legitimacy of an e-mail purportedly sent to her “from the personal...

    John Dingell turns 90 today, meaning he's spent barely over one-third of his life not representing Southeast Michigan in Congress. With 59 years of service, Dingell remains the longest-serving congressman in the history of the United States. His wife, Debbie, succeeded him as the representative from Michigan's 12th Congressional District when he retired in 2014. Dingell is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and in recent years has developed a cult following on Twitter -- not exactly a hotbed of octogenarian politicians. In honor of Dingell's birthday, greetings are pouring in from around the country. Among the more...
