The circulation of petitions to put Initiative 732 on the 2016 ballot signals a new strategy that may come into play if Gov.

Based just off the coast of Schlong-Holstein at the exit of PeckernfŲrde Bay, this station has been recording environmental parameters concerning the Baltic Sea since 1957, painting a particularly detailed picture of how human and natural...

    Israel-bashing figures prominently in 'teach-ins' where San Franciscans seek a flavor of the Vietnam era Let's admit it - San Francisco is gorgeous, and deserves its name as the capital of resistance to what the US is trying to do in the Middle East. After all, while other places from coast to coast had rallies and marches before and during Operation Iraqi Freedom, only there were thousands "hauled off by the pigs" for blocking the financial district, and only there was there a rally and march almost every Saturday for weeks and weeks until Saturday, April 19. But were all...

    Senate Democrats said Wednesday that the Supreme Court has stretched the First Amendment too far when it comes to campaign finances, and vowed to hold a vote to amend the Constitution and undo a number of landmark decisions. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat and chairman of the Rules Committee, said he will push a constitutional amendment to the full floor later this year that would give Congress the power to impose strict limits on campaign finance. ďIt will draw to a fine point where we are at ó and that is, the First Amendment is sacred, but that...

    The hypocrisy could not be more evident as reports indicate Media Matters for America is resisting efforts by Service Employees International Union Local 500 to unionize its employees. Heck, next thing you know, they'll be asking them for a higher minimum wage. "...Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA's staff through a Card Check election..."

    For all the noise about the State Department's final environmental review of the Keystone XL Pipeline being a "blow" to pipeline opponents, the report contains more than enough information for Secretary of State John Kerry -- a respected environmental champion -- to conclude that the pipeline is not in the national interest. Although you have to dig a bit, the report recognizes the dangers associated with the tar sands fuel that the pipeline would transport. Kerry's obligation is to determine what is in the national interest. For all its flaws, the report acknowledges that the tar sands that would get...

    Ah, the beaming confidence of a vacuous intellect! Might this be what Professor Alan Bloom prophesied of in his book "The Closing Of The American Mind"? I ran across a story about a young woman (at least she claims to be and bears the marginal outward appearance thereof), that is a senior, scheduled to graduate from Haaaavaaad (Harvard) U this year. It was at once, fall out of the tree funny ¬Ė because this chicky poo is serious as a breast exam about her batty, hyper-progressive notions about what constitutes the ideal academic environment at her school. It was,...
  • Universities in FCC Newsroom Probe Have Close Ties to Soros, Got $1.8M in Funding

    The FCC may have suspended its invasion into American newsrooms, but the controversial "Critical Information Needs" study also has George Soros' fingerprints all over it. While disturbing, this should come as no surprise since Soros' gave more than $52 million to media organizations from 2000-2010. Two schools were working with FCC on the project, according to Byron York of The Washington Examiner. The University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Communication and Democracy, were tasked by the FCC with coming up with criteria for what information is "critical" for Americans...

    Leftist activists, including members of North Carolina NAACP, are in Raleigh, North Carolina, today for the so-called Moral March. Their mission? To screech about everything from abortion restrictions to fast-food wages. North Carolina blogger extraordinaire Sister Toldjah has a must-read Moral March primer on the Moral Monday movement and its hateful organizers. As bused-in protesters and professional agitators prepared to promote their progressive causes ó including oh-so-racist voter ID requirements ó the state NAACP told participants make sure to have photo ID handy ďat all times.Ē According to the ďImportant Dos and Doníts for Marchers!!!Ē you should bring a ďdriverís...

    The differences between the Old Soviet Union and Barack Obamaís America are dwindling away. This should be disturbing to all Americans but there are actually a certain percentage of our people, (Romneyís 47%) who believe 1984ís ďFreedom is SlaveryĒ motto and are happy being led around like farm animals. If you think we have been losing our freedoms youíre right. A recent American Thinker article, by a Russian ťmigrť now living in the San Francisco area, paints a portrait of a drab suffocating existence under Communist rule, and made some solid comparisons between our lives today and the way he...
