    9/11 Truthers Meet the Birth Certificate Brigade   By Andrew | Friday, April 17, 2009 “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.” – Saul Alinsky  For years, the “9/11 Truth” movement -- which claimed George W. Bush knew about, or even perpetrated, the 9/11 attack -- enjoyed a friendly home in the far-Left's netroots. As the netroots consolidated their grip on the Democratic Party, “troothers”were left behind. Now, many of the same personalities are behind a movement demanding to see Barack Obama's birth certificate, a coalition in which a surprising group...

    Dr. Khurana says there may be broader health ramifications than asbestos or smoking. What? Now just think about that. Again, I foresee a huge higher tax on cell phone use and a higher health and life insurance premium. And maybe people (like me) that don't use cell phones unless its an emergency, would rather not be seated in bars and restaurants where cell phones are in use. Ah, can you say ban?

    The seas are rising, swallowing the Malibu shoreline. Snow falls on Mammoth Mountain later each year, leaving skiers in the lurch. In the Angeles National Forest, trees grow more vulnerable to wildfires as bark beetles that thrive in hot weather proliferate, while water supplies remain fragile. Hotter weather, increased fire danger, severe rainstorms and rising sea levels - among the consequences of global warming - are already creating a multitude of problems for Southern California, scientists said Friday. "California is heading into unknown, dangerous territory if we don't take some action," said Bill Patzert, climatologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory...

    We've all heard of conspiracy theories. The video footage of a man walking on the moon was actually filmed in somebody's basement, the holocaust never happened, Elvis is still alive and the events of September 11 were actually the result of an effort by the U.S. government to create a "catastrophic" event in order to start wars in foreign countries for its own benefit...(more at link)

    It is an open secret that Poland played a very active part during the political crisis in Ukraine. Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski was spending days and nights in Kiev watching the situation. The Polish administration contributed a lot to the long process, which eventually ended up with three election rounds. The Ukrainian events allowed Warsaw to demonstrate its political potential to the EU and the USA. Poland is obviously claiming to become an informal leader of East European states. Despite its active role during the "orange revolution" in Ukraine, the Polish administration will have to spend much energy to substantiate...

    NORTH AUGUSTA--A man who says he doesn't abide by U.S. laws held police at bay for seven hours Friday before surrendering peacefully, Aiken County sheriff's deputies said. Douglas Ray, 51, had been convicted of tax evasion and was wanted Friday for violating probation. Deputies and state agents came to his house around 6 a.m. to serve a warrant, sheriff's Lt. H.B. Eagerton said. Ray refused to go with authorities, and deputies backed off, fearing he might be armed. Ray's wife, daughter and several children were inside the two-story brick house off a busy residential street in North Augusta, about six...
