    Article Details Torture That Mastermind Said He Endured Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was subjected to the CIA's harshest interrogation methods while he was held in secret prisons around the world for more than three years, part of an interrogation regimen that the International Committee of the Red Cross has called "tantamount to torture," according to a New Yorker article to be published on the magazine's Web site today. In a 12-page article released yesterday, reporter Jane Mayer analyzes the development of the CIA's secret interrogation techniques and writes that a...
  • Yahoo to be named Altaba, Mayer to leave board after Verizon deal

    Yahoo Inc. said Monday that it would rename itself Altaba Inc. and Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer would step down from the board after the closing of its deal with Verizon Communications Inc. Yahoo has a deal to sell its core internet business, which includes its digital advertising, email and media assets, to Verizon for $4.83 billion. The terms of that deal could be amended — or the transaction may even be called off — after Yahoo last year disclosed two separate data breaches; one involving some 500 million customer accounts and the second involving over a billion. …
  • Jane Mayer’s McCarthyist Attack on Ted Cruz

    The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer, in a pair of blog posts, served up the latest attempted Democratic Party talking point on freshman Texas Senator Ted Cruz: that Senator Cruz is the second coming of Joe McCarthy. (ThinkProgress coordinates with a predictable illustration for those too simple-minded to get Mayer’s point). As it happens, I have some firsthand knowledge of the subject of Mayer’s vague, thinly-sourced hit job. She’ll have to do better next time, because Ted Cruz is right about Harvard Law School in the mid-1990s. If she’d talked to more people, she might have figured that out. Here’s the...

  • Tyranny for Toddlers:TSA Pat Downs for Kids

    11/17/2010 7:32:03 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 50 replies
    When I saw the video of the three year old girl screaming “Stop touching me!” as the TSA agent was administering her “pat down”, I have to say that I was proud of her. Here was a little girl with common sense enough to know that there was something inherently wrong with what was taking place. In any other setting, besides the doctor’s office perhaps, having a stranger touch EVERY part of your body (against your will) would be considered an assault. But we all know that radical Islam would not shrink away from using a child as a bomb...

    Funny how the Dems accuse opponents of Obama's Hell Care of being set up or paid when that is exactly what THEY are doing!Remember the Town Hall meeting on health care held by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (DEMOCRAT-TX) where she rudely talked on her cell phone instead of listening to the question of a real constituent? (video here)Well, maybe Ms. Jackson Lee was on her phone asking her staff "where's that fake doctor you planted in here for me to call on." Eventually, she found her. Right there in the front row center: [VIDEO AT SITE] Ms. Jackson Lee embraces...

    I was reading the Chron’s piece about Sheila Jackson Lee’s town hall, when something caught my eye: One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee’s district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system. “I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic,” she said. In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila: I’m not sure why, but something didn’t smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn’t you know it? Roxana Mayer...

    Politico ^ | 4/20/09 | JEREMY D. MAYER
    How can a telegenic woman with a fervent following in the party, fundraising skills and a greater ability to fire up a Republican audience than any other GOP politician be such a liability? It’s not just because she’s unelectable as a presidential candidate. Many leading Republicans and Democrats are, for one reason or another. The problem is, Palin doesn’t know she’s unelectable, and neither do her followers......So Palin has a positive future in the Republican Party if she wants it. But running for the top of the ticket of her party’s presidential nomination in 2012, she’s the Democrats’ dream. They...

    The University of Colorado has sent letters to the 400 students signed up to live next year in the Cheyenne Arapaho dorm — saying they must take a 101 course, or move to another hall. The wide-ranging course explores the history of higher education, and touches on topics including diversity, binge-drinking and the psychology of going away to college... But some professors — who say they support a more tolerant campus — are concerned with how the university is rolling the CU 101 course into its curriculum. Hadley Brown, a newly elected CU student-body president, and the others on her...

    Alexander Franklin Mayer Theoretical Physicist and Cosmologist 1 February 2006 Welcome! For a number of months now at Stanford University (Physics), I have been quietly working on a book entitled The Many Directions of Time, which I anticipate will go to press in 2006. Here you will find a preview of related 'digital lectures' that have been created to appeal to a wide global audience including topic experts as well as students, amateur astronomers and scientific professionals of all varieties. The Introduction (17 PowerPoint slides) will take you less than 10 minutes to go through and should convince you that...

    It is fortuitous that John Kerry is both the standard bearer for as well as the embodiment of the Democrat Party, because that means we have a chance to cleanse the nation of both at the polls on November 2nd. View Tuesday’s election as a much needed enema, to be inserted directly into the cesspools of liberalism, starting with Massachusetts. The leadership of the DNC and Kerry are enemies of this republic. They are hate-filled, sociopathic traitors bent on seeing Islamist terror brought home to your neighborhood. John Kerry has blood on his hands, some of it long dried, some...

    New York Times ^ | September 3, 2004 | JEREMY EICHLER
    In a way, catching a ride is how it all began. Fleeing the threat of Portuguese violence, 23 Jewish refugees boarded the Sainte Catherine, a ship that was setting sail for New Amsterdam. They arrived in the Dutch colony almost exactly 350 years ago on Sept. 12, 1654. They were hardly welcomed with open arms, at least not by the governor, Peter Stuyvesant, who tried to expel these "blasphemers of the name of Christ." But enough of his superiors in the Dutch West India Company thought otherwise: the Jews were allowed to stay, becoming the founding members of what would...
