    Hello? On Wednesday’s Hannity radio show, Sean replayed a clip of his recent TV interview with House Speaker Paul Ryan. Newsmax wrote up the interview, headlining: Ryan: Trump, Congress ‘Exactly on Track’ With Agenda Newsmax wrote in part: President Donald Trump and Congress are “exactly on track” with a shared agenda for new administration’s first 200 days in office, according to House Speaker Paul Ryan. In an interview airing Thursday night on Fox News’ “Hannity,” the Wisconsin GOP lawmaker said the Oval Office and Capitol Hill are “working on the same plan.” “What I did during the transition with my...

    Donald Trump on Friday denied claims from fellow 2016 Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that Trump’s friends at the National Enquirer and Trump “political henchmen” are behind a story that the Texas senator engaged in several extramarital affairs. Trump posted a statement on Friday responding to the Cruz accusation: I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it. Likewise, I...
  • Gallup: Americans Name Terrorism as No. 1 U.S. Problem

    Gallup ^ | 12/14/2015 | by Rebecca Riffkin
    After the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, Americans are now more likely to name terrorism as the top issue facing the U.S. than to name any other issue -- including those that have typically topped the list recently, such as the economy and the government. About one in six Americans, 16%, now identify terrorism as the most important U.S. problem, up from just 3% in early November. This is the highest percentage of Americans to mention terrorism in a decade, although it is still lower than the 46% measured after 9/11. Before 2001, terrorism barely registered...

    All the foreign experts and the Government of Israel do not understand the Palestinian problem. All the foreign experts and the high paid consultants tell us that the problem of the Palestinians is that they are desperate because they do not have a state of their own. Jay Shapiro thinks that is wrong. According to him, the problem of the Palestinians is that they have hope that they can destroy the Jewish state and until that hope is crushed they will continue to murder Jews.

    Donald Trump was criticized Thursday evening for not forcefully denouncing a man at a New Hampshire town hall rally who said muslims are a “problem” and accused President Barack Obama of being one.Trump opened the floor up to questions after delivering a few short remarks in Rochester.“We have a problem in this country and it’s called muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American, birth certificate man!” the man said, referencing Trump’s former efforts to get Obama to release his birth certificate.This is the first question?” Trump jokingly asked the crowd.“But anyway, we...

    More alarming for me still were Obama’s attitudes towards America. Vainly, I scoured Dreams from My Father for some expression of reverence, even respect, for the country its author would someday lead. Instead, the book criticizes Americans for their capitalism and consumer culture, for despoiling their environment and maintaining antiquated power structures. Traveling abroad, they exhibited “ignorance and arrogance”–the very shortcomings the president’s critics assigned to him.

    Either, the GOP is too fearful. The GOP is ignorant. Or, the GOP is a part of the problem As a public speaker, I have the opportunity to spend a lot of time with various political clubs, groups and organizations. When it comes to the question and answer portion after my U.S. Constitution presentations, the most common question I get is, “Why don’t the Republicans fight harder?” I tell the audience there are three possible answers. Either, the GOP is too fearful. The GOP is ignorant. Or, the GOP is a part of the problem. It may be a little...

    Has President Barack Obama potentially destroyed Iran’s chances for regime change? With over 60% of Iran’s 78 million-person population under the age of 30, over 80% of the entire population suffering in utter poverty, and a clerical Islamic regime with a rampant record of human rights abuses–not the least of which includes death by hanging for homosexuality, amputations for crimes such as petty theft, and what has been described as one of the cruelest forms of non-physical punishment (“white torture”) in the world–the lingering fear is that the Islamic Republic of Iran may be close to solidifying a stronghold for...

    If anyone has stopped to ask just why global central banks are in such a rush to create inflation (but only controlled inflation, not runaway hyperinflation... of course when they fail with the "controlled" part the money paradrop is only a matter of time) over the past 5 years, and have printed over $12 trillion in credit-money since Lehman, the bulk of which has ended up in the stock market, and which for the first time ever are about to monetize all global sovereign debt issuance in 2015, the answer is simple, and can be seen on the chart below....

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A day before the open enrollment deadline for private health coverage under Obamacare, some consumers were unable to submit applications because of "intermittent issues" with income verification, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department said on Saturday. The agency, which announced the problem in a statement on Saturday afternoon, said nearly six hours later that it had been resolved ahead of the Feb. 15 deadline. **SNIP** It said in a statement that it had worked with the Internal Revenue Service to fix the problem.

    National Review ^ | 2/12/2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The NBC anchor’s lies are symptomatic of a culture in which truth has become relativized. NBC Nightly News anchorman Brian Williams frequently fabricated a dramatic story that he was under enemy attack while reporting from Iraq. NBC is now investigating whether Williams also embellished events in New Orleans during his reporting on Hurricane Katrina. Williams always plays the hero in his yarns, braving natural and hostile human enemies to deliver us the truth on the evening news. Former CBS anchorman Dan Rather tried to pass off fake memos as authentic evidence about former President George W. Bush’s supposedly checkered National...

    In 1909, Ernest Rutherford, Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden took a piece of radium and used it to fire charged particles at a sheet of gold foil. They wanted to test the then-dominant theory that atoms were simply clusters of electrons floating in little seas of positive electrical charge (the so-called ‘plum pudding’ model). What came next, said Rutherford, was ‘the most incredible event that has ever happened to me in my life’. Despite the airy thinness of the foil, a small fraction of the particles bounced straight back at the source – a result, Rutherford noted, ‘as incredible as...

    Earlier today, President Barack Obama said that America’s goal should be to “shrink” the Islamic State until it is a “manageable problem.” His own vice president, Joe Biden, later contradicted him, saying that we will “follow ISIS to the gates of Hell, because Hell is where they will reside.” This afternoon, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did a “what he really meant to say” routine.

    Obama Is Not No Longer The Problem Obama was the problem but no longer. We used to wonder if he had the experience and leadership qualities necessary to preside over a free people under a Constitution that limited government power to protecting the peoples’ rights. That ship has sailed. Obama has provided painful proof that he does not have the ability to lead. His only attribute is to direct and even that is lacking. Obama’s method of governing promoted a Kakistocracy into an Ineptocracy. Obama’s Ineptocracy is defined as a system of government where the least capable to lead are...

    Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency's tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. 'The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,' said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. 'And we subpoenaed the emails in August 2013...

    symbolic obstacle to girls’ educational progress, not as another murderous example of militant Islam that could be fought by U.S. forces. The straight-faced effort to change the subject from jihad to education policy is a reach even for the White House’s media team, partly because the jihadi group has a decade-long history of bombing Christian churches and schools, and killing thousands of Africans. On May 12, for example, the group paraded more than 100 kidnapped girls who have converted to Islam to escape rape. The first lady and

    The Hill ^ | 2/17/14 | Kristina Wong
    Unemployment is now the #1 problem in America, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. After the government shutdown in October, “Government/Politicians” ranked #1 as the top problem in America through mid-January, when legislators passed a bipartisan budget deal. After that, there was a 11-percent drop among Republicans who listed “Government/Politicians” as the top problem, from 26 percent in January to 15 percent in February. The new poll shows that unemployment is now the top issue — an increase of 16 percent from January. Republicans, Democrats and independents all said “Unemployment/Jobs” was the top problem, but the jump was the...

    SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown's image as a responsible, penny-pinching steward of California's finances has been cemented in recent weeks because of his renewed call to pay off California's "wall of debt. That's a term Brown coined when he took office to describe the tens of billions of dollars California owed to public schools and special funds whose coffers were raided to help balance budgets in the past. But look behind that $24.9 billion wall and you'll see a $330 billion skyline of other liabilities threatening the state's financial health. It includes $80 billion needed to cover teachers' pensions and...

It may have been up there all the time. But here is what the president said, the New Yorker interview with David Remnick that they have just posted.

    It's the sort of abstract puzzle that keeps a scientist awake at night: Can you predict how three objects will orbit each other in a repeating pattern? In the 300 years since this "three-body problem" was first recognized, just three families of solutions have been found. Now, two physicists have discovered 13 new families. It's quite a feat in mathematical physics, and it could conceivably help astrophysicists understand new planetary systems. The trove of new solutions has researchers jazzed. "I love these things," says Robert Vanderbei a mathematician at Princeton University who was not involved in the work. He says...
