    Why Hillary Clinton is sinking faster than the Titanic By Wayne Allyn Root Published May 20, 2016 I’ve predicted publicly for a year now that Hillary Clinton,   although a prohibitive favorite, still may never become the Democratic Party’s nominee.  ...barely squeaked by in Kentucky. Bernie has now won 11 of the last 14 primaries and caucuses.  I ask Democrats, is this your nominee? The winner of your presidential nomination has lost just shy of 80 percent of her races coming down the homestretch.   Call me crazy but don't presumptive nominees usually win about 80 percent of their races? This has...

    Sorry folks, love him or hate him only Donald Trump has the chutzpah, audacity, street smarts, killer instincts and vicious lawyers to fight Hillary Clinton and win. Do you understand what we’re up against? Have you seen what the Clinton war machine is capable of? Have you seen what the Obama-Clinton regime is willing to do to win? Do you understand Barack Obama met with the IRS chief more than any cabinet officer (157 times)? During this time the IRS just happened to target, persecute and intimidate only conservative groups and high-profile Obama critics (like me). Then Obama appointed a...

    There are 2 major political parties in America. I’m a member of the naďve, stupid, and cowardly one. I’m a Republican. How stupid is the GOP? They still don’t get it. I told them 5 years ago, 2 books ago, a national bestseller ago (“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide”), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that Obamacare was never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare costs, or lower the debt, or expand the economy. The GOP needs to stop calling Obamacare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a...

    A young entrepreneur was baffled when a Portland security guard thwarted her attempt to help her father pay for her braces by selling mistletoe - but told her she could beg, instead. Madison Root, 11, arrived bright and early at Portland Saturday Market, setting up a sign and basket next to the Skidmore Fountain in the downtown area to sell her wares to the crowds. ... Madison Root knew her upcoming orthodontic work would be expensive, and wanted to contribute. She spent Friday cutting mistletoe at her uncle's farm in Newberg, then wrapped it in clear cellophane and tied it...

"There was never enough mistletoe for this," said Ashton Root, whose daughter Madison was ordered to stop when she began selling mistletoe at Skidmore Fountain in downtown Portland Saturday morning. The story of the aborted enterprise was aired on Portland TV station KATU Sunday evening. National networks and websites carried the news, and by Tuesday afternoon people from all over the country had contacted the KATU newsroom, wanting...

    **SNIP** In hundreds of media interviews, I’ve stated that even though Obama was my college classmate at Columbia University , Class of 1983, and we shared the same majors (Political Science and Pre-Law), I never saw, met, or heard of him. But the media has this story wrong too – I’ve never said that my conclusion is Obama did not go to Columbia . On the contrary, I believe Obama graduated Columbia and we are classmates. Where was he hiding for those Columbia years? My educated guess is he was smoking pot and attending communist meetings, plotting the downfall of...

    Yes, you read that headline correctly. I am a Las Vegas oddsmaker (and former Libertarian vice presidential candidate) and here's why I am so boldly predicting a Romney landslide. In November of 2004, only days before the presidential election, I went on CNBC and predicted a Bush victory by 3 points and 30 electoral votes. Every poll at the time showed Kerry in the lead. Bush won by 3 and 35. Newsmax magazine called it the most accurate prediction of 2004. In October of 2006, I went on Fox News to predict the GOP would get slaughtered in the midterm...

Because of that, my employees were able to pay their mortgages, buy groceries, send their kids to college, and provide for their families. For one small business, I spent about $50 million on things like advertising, marketing, promotion, lawyers and accountants. That money enriched and employed thousands of others. And that’s just one small business. Think of the impact that thirty million small business owners have on the U.S. economy. No wonder we create 70% or...

He was later identified by relatives as Mohammed Radwan, 32, of Austin Texas. ...

    One has to wonder if congratulations are in order for President Obama? The U.S. economy is in ruins, the country in crisis, the world in chaos. Was this all a purposeful plan, or is Obama simply an inexperienced, incompetent, bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the White House? From the day of Obama's election, many concerned patriots have warned about Obama’s goals. Obama is a follower of radical Marxist strategy, like Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and Cloward and Piven’s strategy of overwhelming the system to create economic crisis and chaos. Based on those strategies, one would be foolish not to at...

    n the depths of northeastern India, in one of the wettest places on earth, bridges aren't built - they're grown. The southern Khasi and Jaintia hills are humid and warm, crisscrossed by swift-flowing rivers and mountain streams. On the slopes of these hills, a species of Indian rubber tree with an incredibly strong root system thrives and flourishes. The Ficus elastica produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves. The War-Khasis, a tribe in Meghalaya, long ago noticed...

'Since it leads to the kernel executing code at NULL, the vulnerability is as trivial as it can get to exploit: an attacker can just put code in the first page that will get executed with kernel privileges.'" Note: this is a local exploit, not remote. Looks like the fix for this is in the current tree and is being run through the standard processes.  The above link includes all the gory details.

    Sony is apparently borrowing a tactic from hackers for its digital-rights management technology, and some security experts question the practice. Security researchers have identified a rootkit -- software used by hackers to hide their malicious code from anti-virus and anti-spyware defenses -- within the copy protection scheme Sony BMG Music Entertainment uses to prevent music CDs from being copied to computers. The digital rights management (DRM) technology that Sony BMG uses limits the number of times a CD can be "ripped" to a computer. To prevent the DRM software from being easily circumvented, the copy protection's creator -- a U.K.-based...

From systematic errors in revealing little details, to serious misconceptions about basic facts and principles, we can relatively easily learn how much of "common knowledge" rests actually on superficial research and popular myths. Instead of becoming critical and aware of the traps laid around the issue, both Islamists and Islamophobes fail to recognize how they are manipulated.

    CHRIST’S RETURN TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES John Blanchard Evening of September 6, 2002 Feast of Trumpets We have learned, brethren, that God’s thoughts are higher than man’s thoughts.
