  • Media Touts A New Study Blaming Diabetes Epidemic On Global Warming

    Daily Caller ^ | March 22, 2017 | Michael Bastasch
    The media is touting a new study claiming global warming could be, at least in part, to blame for the "diabetes epidemic" sweeping the globe. "When it gets warmer, there is higher incidence of diabetes," Lisanne Blauw, a Ph.D. candidate at the Netherlands-based Einthoven Laboratory and the study's lead author, told The Huffington Post Tuesday. "It's important to realize global warming has further effects on our health, not only on the climate," Blauw said.

    On his internet video show yesterday, Mark Levin tore into Jew-haters Barack Obama and John Kerry. The popular talk radio host attacked the two Democrat leaders for turning their backs on Israel in the last month of 2016: they refused to vote against an anti-Israel resolution in the UN Security Council, and Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech in which he blasted Israel for a full 70 minutes. Never before had anyone under the age of 71 seen anything like it. Although Levin was on vacation when Kerry gave his speech, he came back yesterday with a vengeance....
  • Racist Professor Blames Whites For Her Menstrual Problems

    Zandria Robinson, the recently-departed University of Memphis professor who described “whiteness” as synonymous with “terror,” had even more old tweets resurface Thursday, in which she blames whites for every lethal riot in U.S. history, blasts Dick and Jane stories for being “heteropatriarchal,” and even attributes her menstrual disorder to (RELATED: Professor: ‘Whiteness’ Is ‘Terror,’ Confederate Flag Represents ‘Capitalism’) Robinson’s blistering anti-white statements first drew widespread attention thanks to reporting by the website Campus Reform. On Tuesday, Memphis distanced itself from Robinson, saying she was no long employed there and deleting her profile page. Initially there were rumors Memphis had fired...

    When Vice President Joe Biden speaks before a crowd he tries to be as relatable as possible, but Wednesday in India he hinted he might be related to them as well. The veep spoke before the Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai and recounted a letter he received when he was first elected to the U.S. Senate back in 1972. “Off script for a second here…one of the first letters I received and I regret I never followed up on it. Maybe some genealogist in audience can follow up for me, but I received a letter from a gentleman named Biden–Biden,...

    Reading a skan-original "first printed" of the Ostrozhsky (OstRih) Bible of 1581 y. (see - Sources), auxiliary I've used traditional Synodal (RST) and Church-slavic (CS) versions. Soon I began to notice a difference of senses in texts of Bibles. Reading, only for the sake of acquaintance with a curiosity, has turned to the most fascinating detective research. The book "Exod", in (RST), (CS), (OstRih), (Torah), and parts of other books, a line by a line - in parallel, has been read, and the differential table is made. (drafts: bible-exodus.narod.ru) Gradually I linked up other canonical and uncanonical Bibles to comparison...
  • Why the media likely ignores presidential hopeful Ron Paul

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 21 aug 2011 | John Kass
    Why is the American media so intent on ignoring congressman Ron Paul and his prickly libertarian views? Paul is running for president in the Republican primaries, and it's plain that the handmaidens of the political establishment — Democrats as well as Republicans — are freezing him out. He came within a few votes of winning last week's Iowa straw poll, just 152 votes short among almost 17,000 cast. But rather than shower this intriguing candidate and his views with attention, the news media willfully forgot about him. The question is, why? Perhaps the answer could be found during the recent...

    Jon Bon Jovi has taken aim at Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, accusing him of "killing" the music industry with iTunes. The rocker is saddened that children no longer enjoy the "magical" experience of buying records in a store because of the ease of downloading individual tracks onto an iPod. And he lays the blame for the generational shift in music-buying at the feet of technology mogul Jobs. Bon Jovi tells The Sunday Times Magazine, "Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost...

    Michael Moore's Website ^ | September 11, 2010 | Michael Moore
    I am opposed to the building of the "mosque" two blocks from Ground Zero. I want it built on Ground Zero. Why? Because I believe in an America that protects those who are the victims of hate and prejudice. I believe in an America that says you have the right to worship whatever God you have, wherever you want to worship. And I believe in an America that says to the world that we are a loving and generous people and if a bunch of murderers steal your religion from you and use it as their excuse to kill 3,000...

    As an obstetrician who has delivered over 4000 children, I have long been concerned with the rights of unborn people. I believe this is the greatest moral issue of our time. The very best of the western intellectual tradition has understood the critical link between moral and political action. Each of these disciplines should strongly inform and support the other. I have become increasingly concerned over the years that the pro-life movement I so strongly support is getting further off track, both politically and morally. I sponsored the original pro-life amendment, which used a constitutional approach to solve the crisis...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews has said some things that would make your scratch your head - like getting a thrill up his leg from a speech given by Barack Obama. However, this one will really make you wonder what he was thinking. On his Nov. 9 broadcast of "Hardball," in an interview with Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Matthews compared the incident of Maj. Nidal M. Hasan at Ft. Hood to Sirhan Sirhan's 1968 assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. "You know, I have a hard time with this because people like Sirhan Sirhan, who is...

    http://radioequalizer.blogspot.com/2009/08/howard-dean-says-senate-republicans.html Apparently, libtalkers aren't the only ones asserting that conservatives want Obama dead. After a week of reckless rhetoric from the left side of the dial, along comes Howard Dean to show them how it's really done! As Dean suggests Senate Republicans want to "kill the bill and kill the president", listen for the former DNC chairman's less-than-sincere effort to step out of the dog-doo. Is this Dean Scream Volume II, the quiet version?

    After airing an interview clip of Sarah Palin telling Fox News' Greta Van Susteren that she was looking for guidance from God about running for national office again, an appalled Chris Matthews called it "troubling," when he let loose this rant on Tuesday's "Hardball": Is, is this commentary about theocracy and going to God for approval? We've been through that with President Bush who said he, "didn't take advice from his father, he got it from another father." And we've been through this sort of Joan of Arc period. Are we gonna get another piece of this where God's leading...

    Spies. They're "probably" in the room, she says ominously. Listening. Conspiring. Taking it all down. Cynthia McKinney thinks we're being watched, and she says so, leaning into the mike. The crowd of several hundred in this Atlanta public library auditorium -- graying Black Panthers gathered for a reunion, a pamphleteering Revolutionary Communist Party guy, Pan-African liberationists -- mostly nods in agreement. ........ She believes there are "credible reports" that the U.S. military dumped 5,000 prisoners -- each with "a single bullet wound to the head" -- in Louisiana swamps using Hurricane Katrina as cover. She believes that Jeb Bush --...

    Stephanie Burns and Ben Parkinson strolled down sun-drenched Fillmore Street with political thievery on their minds. Both are grass-roots volunteers for Republican presidential contender Ron Paul, a Texas congressman whose libertarian views might seem to make him a tough sell in this legendarily left-wing city. But Burns, Parkinson and other Paul supporters have been spending their weekends marching, staffing tables and knocking on doors in an improbable quest: picking up some of California's 173 convention delegates in the Feb. 5 primary. On the surface, the plan seems quixotic given general assumptions about California: that the state is too big for...

Sam Brownback came in last, with half a percentage point). Soon after, Paul picked up the endorsement of Rep. Paul Ingbretson.

    The Politico ^ | 7/13/07
    Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, said the country is in "great danger" of the U.S. government staging a terrorist attack or a Gulf of Tonkin style provocation, as the war in Iraq continues to deteriorate. The Texas congressman offered no specifics nor mentioned President Bush by name, but he clearly insinuated that the administration would not be above staging an incident to revive flagging support. During the radio interview, Paul said the government was conducting "an orchestrated effort to blame the Iranians for everything that has gone wrong in Iraq."
