  • Spiteful Brewing's New Beer Mocks 'Man Child' Donald Trump

    Spiteful Brewing has released "Dumb Donald," a double IPA brewed with key lime, which depicts the presumptive Republican presidential nominee as an evolutionary middle ground between ape and man....Dumb Donald is well, dumb. So dumb in fact, we named a beer after him. It's like he got caught in a pause half way through evolution. His brain still functions, at a minimal level with a vocabulary of a second grade student...You might even start to feel sorry for this man-child."

    The Centers for Disease Control sacrifices more of its credibility on Ebola. Bob Fredericks writes in the New York Post: Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday. “If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room. If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC. Nass...
  • How IPAs conquered the beer world

    INDIA pale ale (IPA) had a good claim to be the first global beer, before lager took a grip on the world’s tipplers. Now IPA, an amber, hop-laden brew, high in alcohol, is regaining its global footprint. Britain’s territories on the Indian subcontinent were generally too hot for brewing. So a couple of hundred years ago, to keep army officers and officials of the East India Company away from the fearsome local firewater, beer was exported from Britain to take its place. What is clear is that hops, which act as a preservative as well as a flavouring, combined with...

    THINK YOU DON'T like IPAs? Too bitter, too intense? Many are. Tongue-numbingly resinous and paint-thinner strong, today's double and triple India Pale Ales have a few devoted, if masochistic, fans. But to those of us more interested in grace than grandeur, IPAs can be hard beers to love. Or even swallow. No longer. Showcasing new and experimental breeds of hops, the latest pale ales offer a welcome change of pace: nuanced flavor.So get them while you can: a fleeting, flickering burst of tropical sun in a northern winter. 1.

  • Chicago-based Arab group faces fresh terrorism scrutiny (AAAN and Obama)

    Daily Caller ^ | November 1, 2013 | Charles C. Johnson
    AAAN has long been tied to President Obama. In 2001 and 2002, the Woods Fund of Chicago, with Obama on its board, made grants totaling $75,000 to the AAAN—about a fifth of AAAN’s overall budget. Obama served in that role alongside Bill Ayers and received $6,000 a year from 1999-2002. AAAN’s founder Rashid Khalidi and his wife Mona hosted Obama in their home on at least one occasion. Obama praised Khalidi’s insights, which had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases.” Khalidi returned the compliment, telling a mostly Arab audience, that Obama is...

    The kid is back in town. That means long lines outside Russian River Brewing Co.'s downtown Santa Rosa brew pub on Friday and lots of voice mail messages on brewer Al Gorton's phone. “I get a lot of friends this time of year,” Gorton said Thursday at the company's south Santa Rosa production facility. Gorton was in the process of filling kegs with Pliny the Younger, a Triple IPA (India Pale Ale) that is so popular with beer aficionados that people come from all over just to sample it. Last year, that included beer enthusiasts from Japan and Denmark, said...

    The Australian-based Institute of Public Affairs (IPA), the “world’s oldest free market think tank” has come under criticism, for its activist-first positions on freedom. Over at Right Pulse...we read, “The IPA is pushing the homosexual marriage bandwagon, and a long wagon it has become: human rights lawyers, celebrities, publicity seekers, other rent-seekers, anyone with an anti-freedom axe to grind, etc…” It doesn’t make sense. Aren’t there enough fatherless and motherless families, without creating and/or blessing more? Right Pulse challenges, the IPA and its employee Tim Wilson’s pro-gay marriage thinking, as well. “Here in Australia, many faith based adoption agencies have...

    There’s an odd history here. In 1999, IPA contributor Ron Brunton admitted: “Since the first suggestion of a link was noted by Japanese researchers in 1957, 25 out of the 31 studies that have been completed have shown some relationship between breast cancer and induced abortion.” He also conceded, “But the people who are gung-ho about the hazards of passive smoking are remarkably cautious when it comes to the evidence linking breast cancer and abortion. They seem to fear that anything which might reflect poorly on the safety of abortion will give aid and comfort to the wrong kind of...

    The Eurofighter IPA 7 test aircraft reached a round milestone in late November when it landed safely on the airfield in Manching after its 100th flight, carrying a new flight software version. During the flight, which lasted about one hour and 25 minutes, pilot Heinz Spölgen tested the new software's autopilot functions, particularly the one for automatic landing approaches. Test pilot Chris Worning had already flown the IPA 7 with this new software version in mid-November. The aircraft forms part of the four-nation test fleet and is used with the appropriate software standard for tests of the plane's enhanced capabilities....

    On Meet the Press last Sunday, Hillary Clinton proclaimed that new vetting procedures had been been put in place to prevent her from taking money from sleaze merchants like Norman Hsu. If you think you’ve heard that line before, you are right. The spokeswoman for Mrs. Clinton, Ann Lewis, said Mrs. Clinton was not aware of Mr. Burgess’s background when he held fund-raising affairs for her in 2000 and 2003, nor did she know whether other prominent Democrats had rejected contributions. She said that Mrs. Clinton’s vetting procedures have been strengthened since the senator’s appearance at I.P.A. That paragraph appeared...

    BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) -- A congressman skeptical of the need for U.S. military action against Iraq says he is flying to Baghdad, hoping to answer questions about a possible invasion and seeking a meeting with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., said he wants to reassure Iraqi citizens that Americans are ``not out to wage war for war's sake.'' ``I'm not going as a secretary of state,'' Rahall said Tuesday. ``I'm not going as a weapons inspector. And I'm not calling upon this administration to do one thing or another. I just have a lot of questions.'' Rahall,...

    John R. Burgess makes for an improbable courtier of presidents, or of a senator who might become one. A disbarred New York lawyer with a criminal record for attempted larceny and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute, Mr. Burgess owns International Profit Associates, a management consulting company in Illinois. Federal authorities are pressing a sexual harassment suit against the company on behalf of 113 former female employees. The Illinois attorney general is investigating accusations of deceptive marketing tactics, officials say, and the company has been the subject of 470 complaints to the Better Business Bureau across the nation in the past three...

    A leading European medical conference has heard how a moderate intake of beer can help beat cancer, heart disease, dementia and other illnesses. The conference in Brussels brought together leading medical and scientific experts from around Europe who shared the latest scientific evidence on the role responsible beer drinking can play in a healthy diet and lifestyle. While the wine story is well known, the positive role of beer is just emerging. Many of the health benefits of moderate beer drinking are unique to beer because of its ingredients such as hops and malted barley. Of all the alcoholic drinks...

    Gianfranco Fini, the Italian Foreign Minister, increased a diplomatic row with the United States today by demanding that Washington identify and punish those responsible for the shooting of Rome’s top intelligence agent in Iraq. Signor Fini dismissed the American version that a lack of communication was responsible for the death of Nicola Calipari, who died in a hail of gunfire from US troops as he escorted a freed Italian hostage to Baghdad airport on Friday. Signor Calipari had made "all the necessary contacts" with US authorities in Baghdad, the minister said. In his account to parliament of the shooting, which...

    The dramatic arrival of Major General Jassem Mohamed Saleh with the newly formed Fallujah Protection Army, to which the USMC is supposed to hand over control of Fallujah, must rank as one of the most surprising episodes of the war. The Washington Post said: The surprise agreement in Fallujah, which was authorized by Marine Lt. Gen. James T. Conway, is intended to give more responsibility to Iraqis for subduing the city while attempting defuse tensions by pulling Marines back from front-line positions. ... The Marines will be replaced by a new militia called the Fallujah Protection Army, which will comprise...

    FALLUJAH, Iraq ---- A dozen former Iraqi generals and intelligence officers met Friday with U.S. military leaders and pledged to lead a brigade of 1,000 Iraqi soldiers to replace the Marines fortifying the city's borders. But U.S. military officials cautioned that the arrival of the Iraqi forces in this embattled city, possibly as early as today, does not necessarily mean peace. "They are still doing some planning on how to do a transition from U.S. forces to Iraqi security forces in Fallujah," Marine Col. John Toolan said Friday, choosing his words carefully while describing the new arrangement that other officials...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - The withdrawal of marines from Fallujah is "an opportunity, not necessarily an agreement" to end fighting for the city, the commander of US forces in Iraq (news - web sites) said, warning that military action may still be needed to root out foreign fighters. General John Abizaid said the United States will not tolerate foreign fighters in the city, and will insist on heavy weapons coming off the streets and on freedom of movement for marines and Iraqi security forces. He said it should be understood that "what we have there is an opportunity, and not necessarily...

He said a survey of all the city’s medical facilities indicated that 140 people were wounded, many seriously. DR. SAFAA AL-AMEEDI, who determined the death toll in telephone calls to local hospitals, said medical facilities were mobbed by people looking for relatives and loved-ones. He said the car bomb outside the Imam Ali mosque was detonated as thousands were...

    Here's another major federal government scandal crying to get legs in the press. Under a law known as the Intergovernmental Personnel Act, the federal government "lends out" 1,200 to 1,500 well paid federal bureaucrats to left-wing non-profit organizations each year.(1) If anyone wonders how the United Nations Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) fit in with the federal government's regulatory agencies, there is a simple answer: They often trade employees back and forth -- most of whom are on the federal payroll. A while back, we reported that the relationship between eco-whacko groups and United Nations NGOs and federal agencies, like the EPA,...
