  • President Obama, the Black Panthers, and the Coming Racial Explosion

    Truth is trampled in the street and judgment is turned around backward. Nothing inflames people to anger like perceived or real injustice. Throw in the tinder of a deteriorating economy in which millions of people are losing their homes, and raging unemployment, and the situation can become extremely ignitable. This was the firebox that the city of Oakland found itself in last Thursday. Around 2:30 p.m., word leaked that the verdict in the Johannes Mehserle murder trial would be read at 4 p.m.—the news set off a mass exodus of residents that was just short of resembling a panic, reported...

    Cracking the whip on all those throwing plastic bags in drains, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has fined nearly 150 people and collected a fine of Rs 1.32 lakh in a fortnight. After having learnt lessons from July 26 deluge, when plastic bags had blocked drains and led to flooding in the metropolis, the civic body has formed two 'plastic ban' squads consisting of six people. "We have collected a fine of Rs 1.32 lakh from 146 people who were caught throwing plastic in drains in the last 12-13 days. These people are largely hawkers and shopkeepers," Deputy Municipal Commissioner...

    Watching live as oil gushes into the Gulf and the epic destruction of beaches and fragile ecosystems now well underway, makes me physically ill. It makes me physically ill in the same way our Nation is being plundered by Obama, relegating all future generations to a life of servitude to a centralized authority. Communism is gushing uncontrollably over America destroying our Free Republic. We The People must Plug the Damn Hole in November 2010 and begin the clean up in 2012.

    The Government has announced plans to introduce a certificate of Irish heritage for up to 70 million people of Irish descent around the world who do not qualify for citizenship. Minister for Foreign Affairs Micheál Martin said at the weekend he had decided to proceed with the initiative, which was first proposed at the Global Irish Economic Forum at Farmleigh last year. The certificates will be issued by a third party agency acting under licence from the Department of Foreign Affairs, which is considering charging a fee for each document issued. The initiative is intended to be self-financing, according to...

    Brendan Davidson / Freedom and Islam! Today, Islam is undergoing profound emotion. Which contributes to the eradication of all Muslims on the planet and the races. This happens for the same reason. No ability to find a common contact. But the main problem and the heart of terror - is distorted by the clergy of the Imams, who send their brothers and sisters to death. For the sake of their own interests. Thus, they kill not only Muslims but also race. Just people are dying because of the views of bin Laden or opinions of another. Who has a vendetta...

    The Pennsylvania Tenth Amendment Center ^ | May 22, 2010 | Steve Palmer
    Many of today’s debates between statists and libertarians are argued on the grounds of efficiency. The libertarians say that when you let the government do something, you invariably get the DMV or the post office. Statists argue that a centralized public service provides better results because it can gain efficiencies of scale and because the lack of a profit incentive eliminates greed. They cite examples like NASA and the Internet to claim that government can do things that would be impossible in the private sector. I am sympathetic to the libertarian argument on this topic, but in this essay I...

    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Gunmen stormed into a bar, dragged out eight people and killed them in the parking lot, the first of several shootings in this violent border city Wednesday that left 16 dead, including a man in a wheelchair. In one incident, a car chase and shootout killed three people in front of an elementary school, creating a panic among students, teachers and parents. Battles between rival drug gangs have made Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, one of the world's deadliest cities. More than 800 people have been killed this year in the city...

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

    Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), the Dean of the House of Representatives for being the longest serving member of the body (he was first elected in 1955, succeeding his father, Rep. John Dingell, Sr.), made an amazing admission during a live telephone interview with Detroit WJR News/Talk 760 radio talk show host Paul W. Smith on Smith's show Monday morning, March 22, 2010. The night before, Dingell had been a featured speaker at the Democrat Congressional leadership victory press conference after Obamacare passed the House. In response to a question posed by Smith, Dingell said: Let me remind you this [Americans...

    Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday said that the Palestinian people had a national right to resistance against Israeli occupation, adding that his government would not acquiesce to any Israeli demands with which it disagreed. Abbas was speaking after a meeting in Amman with U.S. Mideast envoy George Mitchell, who in turn urged the two sides to exercise restraint. The Obama administration was seeking to establish conditions for the stalled Israel-Palestinian talks to resume," he said. Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, meanwhile, said the Palestinians wanted to give a chance to indirect talks with Israel mediated by the United States.

Then said, "It's my heart, my choice...I did not sign away my right to get the best possible health care for myself when I entered politics." Tara Brautigam (CP)—Feb 22, 2010. I wonder where the Premier will go now, since Congress took over America's health care system last night. More important—where will Americans go?

    Belgrade, city of very tumultuous history, one of the oldest in Europe. Its history has lasted for 7000 years. The area around the large rivers was inhabited in the Paleolithic period. From the older stone age, came the remains of human bones and skulls of Neanderthals, found in a quarry near Leštane, in a cave in the vicinity of the Cukarica Bajloni market. Remains of late Stone Age culture were found in Vinca, Zarkovo and Upper Town, above the confluence of the Sava and Danube. This indicates that the area of Belgrade has been continually inhabited and that the intensity...

    Man Pleads Guilty to Filing 250 Tax Returns for Dead People Riverside, Calif. (January 27, 2010) By WebCPA Staff A California man has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. after he was accused of filing at least 250 tax returns of deceased individuals. Haroon Amin of Upland, Calif., pleaded guilty Monday to the charges. He was indicted, along with Ather Ali of Diamond Bar, Calif., in December 2008. The two were accused of filing the returns in 2002 and 2003 falsely stating that the deceased individuals earned wages from which income tax was withheld. The false returns claimed...

    When I arrived at his cramped state senate offices, Scott Brown had just opened one of the many packages he's received since his stunning U.S. Senate victory 11 days ago. A local artist has done up a version of the iconic red, white and blue collage from the 2008 presidential campaign that shows Barack Obama with the word "Hope." This one features a smiling Mr. Brown instead, but the word below is different. It reads "Change."

    I was recently reminded while troubleshooting a friend's small business network of where most computer systems' real security weaknesses lie. Where do you think it is? The desktop operating system, which was Windows XP SP3? The server operating systems, which were Windows Server 2003 SP2 and Novell's SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 11 SP1? Or, the Sonicwall TZ 210 firewall appliance? The answer was, of course, none of the above. The weakest spot on your network is never your operating systems, your hardware, your applications, your security software or any of the rest of the technical side. The weakest link...

    You know the episodes of 30 Rock in which Liz Lemon, played by wicked Sarah-Palin impersonator Tina Fey, decides whether women's boyfriend troubles are deal-breakers? "Yes! I saw that the other day. It was hilarious," says none other than Palin herself. The former Alaska governor and VP candidate sat down with PEOPLE on Nov. 14 to answer some reader questions – such as that from Samantha Harris, of Boca Raton, Fla., who wrote that the man she's dating "doesn't believe in politics because it doesn't affect him. Do you think this is a deal-breaker?" Answered Palin, "The deal-breaker is that...
