    Gwyneth Paltrow is causing controversy again with a statement on her lifestyle website Goop about her belief that water might have feelings. The 41-year-old actress, who recently split from her husband Chris Martin, endorsed the work of Japanese doctor Masuru Emoto, who has published several books on the theory that human consciousness can change the structure of water. "I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water," Paltrow wrote on her blog. "How the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."

    Syrians in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta say Saudi Arabia provided chemical weapons for an Al-Qaeda linked terrorist group which they blame for the August 21 chemical attack in the region, a Mint Press News report says. The article co-authored by a veteran AP reporter, said interviews with doctors, residents, anti-government forces and their families in Ghouta suggest the terrorists in question received chemical weapons via Saudi spymaster Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan Al Saud. The report quoted the father of a militant as saying that his son and 12 others were killed inside a tunnel used...

The United States of America. Let’s bear this in mind as our Noble Peace Prize winning President attempts to involve us in another unconstitutional war based on the fact that chemical weapons have been used.

While trying to correct already published articles in widely-read publications is akin to unringing a bell, I think it important to respond to correct and clarify words and actions attributed to me. While the article is technically truthful, it is nuanced and written to portray a cavalier attitude among the participants in several foreign policy initiative and intelligence operations during the last full year of...

    AFP - The United States provided Iraq with intelligence on preparations for an Iranian offensive during the Iran-Iraq war even though it knew Baghdad would respond with chemical weapons, Foreign Policy magazine reported Monday. Citing declassified CIA documents and interviews with former officials, the magazine reviewed the US record as Washington weighs military action against Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons near Damascus last week. The magazine said the US knew in 1983 that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein would not hesitate to resort to shelling Iranian forces with sarin or mustard gas. "As Iraqi attacks continue and intensify...

If we were to just immediately put [out] an arbitrary date and cut trillions from our budget, we would really impact a lot. We’re actually starting to see a small part of that with the bad policy of sequestration that has been imposed on...

The resolution argues that climate change may have a particularly dire impact on women. Climate change, it says, exacerbates food scarcity, and “Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work,...

    Washington state's governor signed into law on Monday the final piece of a six-year effort to rewrite state laws using gender-neutral vocabulary, replacing terms such as "fisherman" and "freshman" with "fisher" and "first-year student." Lawmakers have passed a series of bills since 2007 to root out gender bias from Washington statutes, though a 1983 state mandate required that all laws be written in gender-neutral terms unless a specification of gender was intended. "This was a much larger effort than I had envisioned. Mankind means man and woman," said Democratic state Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle. The new gender-neutral references, for...

With the exception of Sarah Palin, no one has been demonized by the media as much as the congresswoman from Minnesota. The notorious Newsweek cover picture, headlined "The Queen of Rage," epitomized scores of hit pieces by the boys and girls of the MSM. But when open-minded writers actually spoke with her, it was a different story. According to Bachmann, reporters for three major publications -- she wouldn't...

    Duluth made history last week when it became the first city in the state to pass a resolution in support of a constitutional amendment that would essentially overturn a U.S. Supreme Court decision, namely Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission. The court ruled in 2010 that corporations are entitled to the same constitutional rights as individual U.S. citizens. A majority of justices also concluded that political spending was a form of free speech and that corporations should be able to spend an unlimited sum of money to influence voters, without disclosing financial details of their activities.

    House Democrats took to the floor on Wednesday, characterizing a provision for disaster-relief in the GOP's short-term spending measure as “stingy” and a “disgrace.” Democrats oppose the provision for $3.7 billion in disaster relief because Republicans have offset the funds by cutting from a fuel-efficiency program, the Department of Energy’s Advanced Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program. Democrats say they won't support the bill because the cuts will hurt job creation. In a floor speech, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) deemed the Republican’s FEMA bill “frugal and cheap.” Criticizing the bill for its offsets from the DOE program, Ellison said the bill “is...

The billboards popped up across metro Atlanta on Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. The billboards are part of a campaign targeted at persuading black women from...

    Can someone enlighten me whether the DailyKos owner can be arrested for destroying evidence in the Giffords shooting case if it turns out that BoyBlue is indeed the shooter? It is clear now that the shooter loved the Communist Manifeso and is an ardent leftist. Also, Giffords is Jewish and we know the anti-Semitism that pervades liberals. Remember Helen Thomas? So all this clearly proves that liberalism is the reason for the shooting. If BoyBlue is indeed the shooter, then DailyKos is clearly guilty of abetting a crime by destroying evidence about the person's true motives.

    When Air America Media, the liberal radio network, went bust last month, it left several of its better-known contributors, including Rachel Maddow and Ron Reagan, holding i.o.u.’s. According to the company’s bankruptcy filing, its unsecured debts exceeded its net worth by more than $15 million at the end. Almost all of that is owed to Pendulum Media, the company run by Air America’s chairman, Charlie Kireker. But when the lefty chatter stopped, some of the talkers had not been paid for the last of the airtime they filled. Ms. Maddow was due $3,952 for her services, which appeared to be...

    What if we could know, scientifically, that one side has the edge in brainpower? Should that change how we think about political issues? Who are smarter, liberals or conservatives? This is the kind of question that could spark fierce and endless debates between political opponents, but what if we could know, scientifically, that one side has the edge in brainpower? Should that change how we think about political issues? Though few partisans on either side are likely to admit it, most people at one time or another have suspected that their political opponents are dim bulbs. Sometimes these sentiments get...

  • Healthcare opponents Palin, Beck, Tea Party proselytize for Satan (He's serious!)

    The Examiner ^ | January 4, 2009 | Ron Bynum
    There is evil hate in Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and their Tea Party Patriot supporter’s voices when they campaign to deny affordable health care to every American, all the while extolling the virtues of their Christian faith. The truth is that they are either lying hypocrites, worshippers of Satan involved in a grand plan to destroy America and the Christian faith, or ignorant of what it means to be a follower of Christ. Christians know that their paramour, Jesus Christ, gave two commands to his disciples when asked what the most important commandment was. He said to love God and...

    As President of the United States before and during the COP15 Climate Summit of December, 2009, you willfully and knowingly engaged in criminal behavior that: (1) will greatly worsen our unfolding global Climate Crisis; (2) will result in the deaths of millions of humans and other creatures; (3) severely threatens the lives of your own children; and (4) continues and extends the lethal, planet-ruining practices of your criminal predecessor, George W. Bush. Your criminal indictment: 1.. You directed U.S. COP15 negotiators to introduce a proposal to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 4% by the year 2020, based on...

    President Obama has lost his 2012 bid for re-election. He has made key decisions in three areas that, unless he alters his approach (not likely), could well guarantee a Republican victory: an embarrassingly rolled-out, badly-compromised health-care reform bill; his continuing slavish subservience to those on Wall Street that took the country into the economic toilet; and his sad imitation of CheneyBush's imperial campaign in Afghanistan. (Obama's only hope for 2012 may depend on Sarah Palin getting the GOP nomination. Even better if Glenn Beck or Dick Cheney is her running mate -- been mentioned seriously. The Democrats can only hope...

    Here is video of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell today talking with Politico's Jonathan Martin about Gov. Sarah Palin's remarks yesterday that President Obama's Birth Certificate is "fair game" as an issue. Martin said Palin tried to "walk back" her comments today by making a post on her Facebook at 1:00 AM in which she said she has never questioned President Obama's Birth Certificate. Martin seems to think Palin made the comments because she knew she was talking to a conservative audience, and did not think about it getting out to a wider audience. . . . (VIDEO)

    A little nutty or totally wacked? Totally wacked, for my money. But this is the question some Republicans still ponder about the two most “hated” women in the country, as Fox superstar Sean Hannity lovingly calls them.

    Whew, I'm pooped. Jimmy Carter has got me run ragged with all the hating I'm supposed to do. Jimmy says I'm a racist because I oppose President Obama's health care reform program. Even Jimmy Carter can't be wrong all the time. And since Jimmy Carter has been wrong about every single thing for the past 44 years, maybe--just as a matter of statistical probability--he's right this time. I hadn't noticed I was a racist, but that was no doubt because I was too busy being a homophobe. Nancy Pelosi says the angry opposition to health care reform is like the...

    A federal judge has a hand in putting the finishing touches on plans by three groups to protest during next week's Group of 20 economic summit. The judge was expected to rule Thursday in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on the plans. He must determine what route one protest group can take for a march and rally, and whether two groups can use parks for their protests. The Thomas Merton Center, an anti-war and social justice group, wants to march from near the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University to the city-county building and then near the David...
