  • A Criminal Gang Used a Drone Swarm To Obstruct an FBI Hostage Raid

    05/03/2018 3:06:42 PM PDT · by BBell · 93 replies ^ | 5/3/18 | BY PATRICK TUCKER
    And that’s just one of the ways bad guys are putting drones to use, law enforcement officials say. DENVER, Colorado — Last winter, on the outskirts of a large U.S. city, an FBI Hostage Rescue Team set up an elevated observation post to assess an unfolding situation. Soon they heard the buzz of small drones — and then the tiny aircraft were all around them, swooping past in a series of “high-speed low passes at the agents in the observation post to flush them,” the head of the agency’s operational technology law unit told attendees of the AUVSI Xponential conference...

    When the first family leaves the White House in January at the end of Barack Obama's presidency, they are reportedly moving into a cozy 8,200-square-foot mansion close by. According to Politico, the Obamas will be leasing the property, which is situated in Washington D.C.'s Kalorama neighborhood.
  • The Fermi Paradox Is Not Fermi's, and It Is Not a Paradox

    Two big ideas often come up in discussions about the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI. One is the Drake Equation, which estimates the number of civilizations in our Galaxy whose signals we might be able to detect--potentially thousands, according to plausible estimates. The other is the so-called Fermi paradox, which claims that we should see intelligent aliens here if they exist anywhere, because they would inevitably colonize the Galaxy by star travel--and since we don't see any obvious signs of aliens here, searching for their signals is pointless. The Drake Equation is perfectly genuine: it was created by astronomer...

    Stephen Hayes, of The Weekly Standard and a Fox News contributor and pundit, bombarded GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump at a press conference following Trump’s speech at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa on Saturday—controlling the media availability and yelling as he argued with Trump. Breitbart News captured part of the exchange on video, and it turns out Hayes was the pundit badgering Trump about his comment on McCain.
  • Terror Threat Intelligence Not New, Agencies knew of threat to embassies, officials for months

    Free Beacon ^ | 8/5/13 | : Bill Gertz
    Intelligence regarding al Qaeda plans to attack U.S. embassies, officials, and interests last Sunday was known for months by U.S. intelligence agencies but was used only recently to trigger the closure of embassies and issuance of public warnings of impending attacks. Al Qaeda “chatter” about coming terrorist operations, mainly against 22 U.S. embassies and consulates, and threats to attack or bomb officials in the Middle East and elsewhere was widely reported in classified intelligence reports over several months. The report said an attack was planned for Sunday, although no attack was carried out. The intelligence was based on electronic surveillance...

    As support for gay mom and former Boy Scout troop leader Jennifer Tyrrell contines to pour in from across America, it's important to reflect on those who have been saying all along that moms like Jen should be allowed in the Boy Scouts. Including Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who said in a 1994 debate: “I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country. I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate...

    How many different name is President Obama legally authorized to use? Is his legal name Barack Hussein Obama II, Barack Hussein Obama (without the designation "II" indicating Barack Obama Jr.), Barry Soetoro or Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah? All of these names appear in various documents produced since 2008 regarding Obama's life story and his passport records. The White House has refused to release Obama's long-form birth certificate filed at his birth that lists the hospital where he was born and the name of the physician who attended the birth. Also, the White House has refused to disclose to the public...

    The recent scandals surrounding the climate change debate and the science behind climate change have prompted politicians and law makers across the country to order climate scientists to hand over the data that represents their findings.  In some cases, climate scientists have even been threatened with criminal charges if it is found that data was intentionally altered for the purposes of furthering a pro-climate change agenda. 255 members of the National Academy of Sciences have responded to these charges in an open letter entitled Climate Change and The Integrity of Science.  The letter denounces the charges made against them by...

    American Chemical Society ^ | Nov 4, 2009 | Unknown
    Scientists in Washington, D.C. are reporting laboratory evidence supporting the possibility that some of Earth's oil and natural gas may have formed in a way much different than the traditional process described in science textbooks. Their study is scheduled for Nov./Dec. issue of ACS' Energy & Fuels, a bi-monthly publication. Anurag Sharma and colleagues note that the traditional process involves biology: Prehistoric plants died and changed into oil and gas while sandwiched between layers of rock in the hot, high-pressure environment deep below Earth's surface. Some scientists, however, believe that oil and gas originated in other ways, including chemical reactions...

    I were a visitor from another planet I’d wonder how a nation filled with so many weak minded fools managed to achieve the greatness that grabbed my attention in the first place. Certainly I would never have expected that people that visited the moon would have so many flat earthers when it comes to believing the lie called anthropomorphic climate change. These same fools that attack the concept of God on a daily basis have accepted the laughable premise that the CO2 we expel as part of our respiratory process, the same CO2 that plants need to grow and thrive,...
  • Why Rush Limbaugh Is Good for the Republicans

    Yahoo / Time ^ | 03/12/2009 | EagleUSA
    Obama aides Rahm Emanuel and Robert Gibbs knew what they were doing when they declared Rush Limbaugh the leader of the Republican opposition. They were putting Republican politicians in a trap. Repudiating Limbaugh would mean alienating millions of conservatives and declaring Limbaugh's plainspoken conservatism - which many of those politicians share - outside the lines of the national debate. But neither could Republicans allow the insinuation that they take orders from a radio host stand. If voters got that impression, they would look weak. Worse, the polls show more people dislike Limbaugh than like him. The Republicans escaped this trap...
  • Should we increase taxes to fund a war?

    I was doing some introspection on the Bush (II) Presidency. Personally, I believe that he should be regarded as a top President for being only one of two Presidents to have created a foreign democracy (the other President was Harry Truman - my favorite socialist, I mean Democrat). However, I believe George Bush also created a fiscal nightmare by both increasing war spending and domestic spending at the same time while cutting taxes. Of course, a bit of calculus will show that cutting taxes can increase revenue at certain rates. And raising taxes always creates a deadweight loss, discouraging activity...

    In 2009, the eyes of the world will turn to commemorate the anniversaries of the births of the two most influential men of the last one thousand years — the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. No two men of the past millennium have done more to shape the thoughts of mankind or to affect the political and social destiny of nations than Calvin and Darwin — the former for the glory of God, and the latter for unimaginable evil. The following is a synopsis and excerpt...

    This is like a Grisham novel. A tangential but delicious point -- it may very well be in Clarence Thomas's hands. When the Mansourian plant was asked on Pastor Rick Warren's Saddleback Political Forum, who he would not have nominated for Supreme Court Justice, Obama said "Clarence Thomas". He then went on to denigrate Thomas's intellect ("not a strong enough legal thinker or intellect"). The plant is not fit to wipe Thomas's boots. I hope the plant is sweating. Bwahhaahahahahahaha. BTW, I found Obama's racism against Thomas (he calls everyone against him a racist so why can't I do the...

    Fellow Blog Talk Radio compadre David Zublick over at Heading Right says, “Maybe Not“. I noted back here that when Kos produced - not a birth certificate - but a certificate of live birth there were several discrepancies noted that pointed to the fact - aside from the convenience - that the document was most likely forged. Since Obama has failed to produce a birth certificate, in-spite of several calls to do so, is telling indeed. I was born in 1958 in the State of Florida and I can get a birth certificate for ten bucks. I doubt Hawaii was...
  • Health Care In America: How Do We Fix It?

    [How to fix health care? When it comes to the current state of heath care services in the United States, there are no easy answers. However, most people I've spoken to — both within and without the industry — agree that the way we are providing health care services in America now just isn't working, and that something must be done. Both Democrat presidential candidates are touting a public/private system of universal health care; the Republican candidate favors tinkering with the current system. Other proposals include getting rid of all government involvement in the health care industry, full-on British/Canadian-style socialized...

    TAMPA — A doctor told a panel reviewing Florida’s lethal injection procedures that executioners “did the worst thing they could do” during the botched killing of condemned inmate Angel Diaz last year. The testimony came from Mark Heath, a Columbia University anesthesiologist who has testified on the behalf of death row inmates in about 20 states. But despite such testimony, the key question of whether Diaz suffered pain during the execution remained murky. Heath said the execution team “did exactly 100 percent the wrong thing” during the Dec. 13 execution of Diaz, who was condemned for the 1979 shooting death...

    The executive director of the Sacramento chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said he believes a death threat against him was fueled by Senator Barbara Boxer’s actions. Boxer had commended Basim Elkarra’s chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for the group’s efforts to improve relations between Christians, Jews, minority groups and the FBI. Her officer later rescinded the award after investigating an on-line report that accused Elkarra’s group of terrorist sympathies. While investigating the accusations, Boxer learned two former CAIR members were sentenced to prison for crimes related to terrorist groups, according to her communications director, Natalie Ravaitz....
