    **full title**Pressure on NBC exec to resign after revelation he dined with sex creep Harvey Weinstein before spiking exposeNBC News is coming under increasing criticism for its failure to investigate why its embattled president, Noah Oppenheim, spiked a bombshell story that would have been the first to expose Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator. An NBC spokesperson says the network is not investigating the matter, despite new revelations that Oppenheim sat at small table with Weinstein at an exclusive New York gala in April, when [Noah] Oppenheim reportedly already knew that his reporter, celebrity scion Ronan Farrow, had...
  • What Happens If U.S. Quits Climate Deal?

    05/31/2017 11:34:05 AM PDT · by rightwingintelligentsia · 62 replies
    Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists say. That's because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Wednesday that he would make his "decision over the next few days" on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged...

    The Federalist ^ | James Mann
    If there is one thing consistent about the tides of the culture wars, it is that whenever one side is emboldened, it inevitably leads to overreach. The secular Left is proving this point with gusto in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to nationalize gay marriage, calling for the removal of tax exemptions for churches and religious non-profits who continue to hold the tired old definition of marriage that existed all the way up until yesterday. This step, which would crush the budgets of many churches and non-profits, reveals an amusing hypocrisy of the modern Left’s turn against civil...

    (A few years back, Professor Stephen Oppenheimer wrote a book titled "Eden In The East" where he proposed that our culture flowed from east to west instead of west to east. Here's a rebuttal)Cultural diffusion from East to West? 2014/01/12 Oppenheimer’s theory is that “ … the roots of the great flowering of civilisation in the fertile crescent of the Ancient Near East lay in the sinking shorelines of Southeast Asia. The Sumerians and Egyptians themselves wrote about the skilled wise men from the East, a fact often dismissed as the embellishment of a fertile imagination.” Purely as an aside,...
  • Transcripts Kept Secret for 60 Years Bolster Defense of Oppenheimer’s Loyalty (NYT)

    New York Times ^ | Oct. 11, 2014 | William J. Broad
    At the height of the McCarthy era, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the government’s top atomic physicist, came under suspicion as a Soviet spy. After 19 days of secret hearings in April and May of 1954, the Atomic Energy Commission revoked his security clearance. The action brought his career to a humiliating close, and Oppenheimer, until then a hero of American science, lived out his life a broken man. But now, hundreds of newly declassified pages from the hearings suggest that Oppenheimer was anything but disloyal. Historians and nuclear experts who have studied the declassified material—roughly a tenth of the hearing transcripts—say...

    I am going to let my subscription to Sports Illustrated lapse when it runs out this year. I hope lots of other people will do the same. Like too many other publications, the magazine has become dishonest, dishonorable and even occasionally despicable in its conformist, lockstep left-wing bias. Republican politicians and conservative positions are routinely insulted in articles having nothing to do with either. Yawn-inducing left wing predictability is brought to the discussion of every issue. No SI writer is allowed to disagree with leftism ever. Despite its great photographs and occasionally good athlete profiles, the magazine has remade itself...
  • Doctor Teller’s Strange Loves, from the Hydrogen Bomb to Thorium Energy

    The Big Picture - ritholtz.com ^ | March 7, 2012 | Barry Ritholtz
    Edward Teller, the father of the hydrogen bomb, had a thing for nuclear bombs. He wanted them bigger, smaller, faster, used in ways that no one had thought of before or since, and always more of them. He suffered no fools, and though he would be more villified than any other American scientist in the 20th century, he always dismissed his critics as lacking in common sense or patriotism. Amid Cold War paranoia and fears of the Soviet nuclear program, the stakes were simply too high: for the free world, building the most powerful weapon in history was a matter...

    A leading nationalist has filed a criminal complaint against Peace Now leader Yariv Oppenheimer for giving U.S. embassy officials in Washington information with the intention of “damaging the country.” The alleged crimes are punishable by life in prison or even death. “I hope that American pressure on the government of Israel will bring about an implementation” of orders against a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria, he said in a document revealed last week by WikiLeaks. Itzik Shadmi, head of the Binyamin Region Residents’ Committee, said, “Peace Now for years incites policies against Israel in order to weaken the communities...

    Okay…there’s almost no way to take these guys seriously anymore. Check out Item #4 at the following FoxNews link: "Eight Botched Environmental Forecasts" (http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/12/30/botched-environmental-forecasts/). Oft-quoted Princeton scientist and climate-change advocate Michael Oppenheimer speaks of a 65% margin of error in their temperature predictions. If that’s the standard these guys are using, then everything they say is completely meaningless. I could probably make 20 climate predictions while singing “Ring My Bell” and pruning my azaleas and be within the margin of error!

    PREFACE HOW THIS BOOK CAME TO BE WRITTEN By Zygmund Dobbs In 1957 a Harvard alumni group asked this writer to initiate a study of leftist infiltration at Harvard University. Previous efforts to find a qualified Harvard alumnus for the task had proved unfruitful. This was a period when America was still in shock over scandals involving traitorous government officials in the service of the Stalinist terror apparatus. Disloyal Ivy leaguers had used the wealth and resources of the United States to undermine their own country. Incredibly, at the same time, they were able to betray over 600 million people...

    Taxpayers will lose money in the $700 billion government rescue plan for the nation's banking system, Oppenheimer analyst Meredith Whitney said. Contrary to predictions from some supporters of the bailout plan, Whitney said on CNBC that the continued slump in housing prices will make a profit from the bailout unlikely. "I think you definitely lose money on this $700 billion structure," Whitney said. "There's no idea where house prices bottom, and as a result how can you make money on this transaction

    The cradle that is India March 07, 2005 Ideas about early Indian history continue to play an important role in political ideology of contemporary India. On the one side are the Left and Dravidian parties, which believe that invading Aryans from the northwest pushed the Dravidians to south India and India's caste divisions are a consequence of that encounter. Even the development of Hinduism is seen through this anthropological lens. This view is essentially that of colonial historians which was developed over a hundred years ago. On the other side are the nationalist parties, which believe that the Aryan languages...

    THE OPPENHEIMER REPORT Hispanics should say 'gracias' to anti-Latin zealots BY ANDRES OPPENHEIMER aoppenheimer@MiamiHerald.com On behalf of the 40 million Hispanics in the United States, I extend my gratitude to the three people who have done the most to energize the ''Latino power'' in the United States: immigrant-phobic Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis.; CNN's Lou Dobbs, and Harvard Professor Sam Huntington. Without the ''three amigos'' of the anti-immigration cause, we would have never seen the unprecedented crowds of Hispanic protesters that filled the streets of more than 100 U.S. cities in recent days. More than 500,000 protesters -- most of them...

    AMMAN, Jordan - Islamic militants planned to detonate an explosion that would have sent a cloud of toxic chemicals across Jordan, causing death, blindness and sickness, a chemical expert testified in a military court Wednesday. Col. Najeh al-Azam was giving evidence in the trial of 13 men who are alleged to have planned what would have been the world's first chemical attack by the al-Qaida terror group. The accused include al-Qaida's leader in Iraq, Abu-Musab Al-Zarqawi, and three other fugitives who are being tried in absentia. Jordanian security services foiled the plot in April last year. Jordanian officials say that...

Sherwin Knopf, 736 pp., $35 ALL THE NEW EVIDENCE FROM long-closed Russian archives, and declassified American projects like Venona, has settled many of the most vexing espionage cases of the Cold War. The Rosenbergs were guilty of spying; so, too, were Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, and the dozens of government employees whom Elizabeth Bentley accused of being Soviet agents. The only major controversy that remains concerns Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant scientist who oversaw the construction...

    Hurrah! The World Bank and the Bush administration are beginning to discover what a leading Peruvian economist has been saying for the past 20 years -- corruption in Latin America, Asia and Africa is often a result of excessive government regulation. In a massive study released earlier this month, the World Bank reported how many bureaucratic steps and how long it takes to set up a business in various countries of the world.Guess what? It discovered, among other things, that the countries with the most regulations are the ones in which people have to pay the most bribes and where...

    ...rather than have Oppenheimer supply classified documents to agents, his Soviet spy masters might have preferred that he "appoint other Communists to key positions who would in turn hand over the information." Crouch then identified a number of scientists with Party affiliations appointed by Oppenheimer to key positions in the Manhattan Project. Nearly fifty years later, the Schecters would uncover a letter in the Soviet spy archives written by Lavrenti Beria, Stalin’s chief spy and then head of his nuclear program. Beria refers to Oppenheimer as an "unlisted agent" of the CPUSA and praises Oppenheimer’s role in providing Soviet spies...

These hearings [although some of the thunder had already been stolen during the 1948 - 1949 Nixon chaired HUAC sessions] delved further into the charges that the Soviet Union had placed intelligence agents - spies - throughout the Democrat administrations of both FDR and Harry Truman. The Committee’s lighting rod chairman at the time was the Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph P....
