    It's not just the United States that could soon see itself engaged in a deadly conflict with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. China is also at risk of an imminent war with North Korea, warned some of China's most prestigious national security experts at a conference in Beijing this week. “Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” said Shi Yinhong, director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing and an adviser to the State Council of China on diplomacy issues since February 2011, during the...

    The latest NBC News/Wall St. Journal polling revealed a rare area of agreement between Democrat and Republican voters, namely that both groups now overwhelmingly believe that only the merciless slaughter of the opposing party and its voters can solve America's problems. Among those identifying as Republican, Conservative, or Libertarian, 83 percent favored the wholesale massacre of all liberal freaks, while 87 percent of Democrats, Liberals, and Progressives supported the total liquidation of right-wing lunatics. "For most of 2015, and now into 2016, the country's mood was defined by anger at the inexplicable stupidity of the opposition party," said Democratic pollster...

    Hawaii Gov. David Ige says the state would welcome refugees from Syria with aloha. Ige said in a statement Monday that Hawaii and the U.S. have a long history of welcoming refugees affected by war and oppression. Ige spokeswoman Jodi Leong says it's too early to speculate on how many may come to Hawaii as the governor hasn't been contacted by President Barack Obama or his administration. The governor says "Hawaii is the Aloha State, known for its tradition of welcoming all people with tolerance and mutual respect." Ige says safety is his first priority. He says the U.S. accepts...
  • Obama: World does not believe Israel serious about two-state solution

    The international community does not believe that Israel is serious about a two-state solution, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has placed so many conditions to its establishment that it is unrealistic to think it could come into existence in the near future, US President Barack Obama said Tuesday. Obama, in a Channel 2 interview, said that Netanyahu was “fairly unequivocal” in his statement the day before the election that a Palestinian state would not emerge under his watch. Since then, Obama said, Netanyahu has made comments indicating that there is a possibility of a Palestinian state, but added so many...

    In a series of moves that appear to have been planned carefully, Mr. Putin has taken Crimea, won huge popular support in Russia and in much of Crimea and left the West holding financial responsibility for the rest of Ukraine. There is no doubt that Russia may seek to annex more parts of Ukraine. Russian military intervention is possible, but the Crimean strategy has proven much easier. Time and momentum are on Russia’s side, so Mr. Putin can be patient. If Ukraine’s eastern and southern regions continue to flounder while Russia grows richer, it is only a matter of time...

    If a family were to purchase a home with a $200,000 mortgage at 2.5% to be paid off in 15 years, the monthly payment would be $1333.57, or $16,003 per year. If a government owes a debt of $17 Trillion on which it pays principle and interest at a rate of 2.5% to be paid off in 15 years, the monthly payment would be $113.35 Billion, or $1.36 Trillion per year. So after 180 monthly payments the total payoff would be $20.4 Trillion, but let’s not get too deep into the weeds. The USA is averaging a deficit of about...

    Liberals have the Democrat Party, Establishment Republicans have the GOP and conservatives have no party that represents them in Washington. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of Republicans who say they’re conservative. There are even plenty of Republicans who will vote like conservatives when it doesn’t matter. But, how many conservatives are actually willing to fight for conservative principles the way Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi fight for liberal principles? In the House and Senate combined, there are a few dozen, tops and the establishment Republicans are incessantly bemoaning the fact that anyone stands up for conservatism. So when...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry reaffirmed his government's commitment to a "2-State Solution" between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) today, as he summed up the initial progress made between the sides amid renewed negotiations. The brief press conference started an hour late, and relatively few details of the discussions held between Israeli chief negotiator Tzipi Livni and her PA counterpart were revealed. One significant point which was mentioned by Kerry was that "all final status issues... core issues and all other issues are all on the table." Calling for a "change" in "the way we think about compromise,"...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney supports a two-state solution to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, he told CNN during his visit to Jerusalem. In an interview with the American news network, which took place in Jerusalem on Sunday, Romney was asked if he saw the starting point for negotiations as the borders which existed prior to the 1967 Six Day War. He responded by saying, “I'm not being that specific. I'm saying that there will be borders that have to be negotiated and what the starting point is something which will be decided by the...

    On Friday, French President Francois Hollande stated that the only way out of the ongoing crisis in Syria was the departure of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which would require an increase in international pressure and more UN sanctions. "The regime of Bashar al-Assad has behaved in an unacceptable and intolerable manner and has committed acts which disqualify it," Hollande told a joint news conference with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. "No solution to this crisis is possible without the departure of Bashar ..."

    Santorum Bashes Public Schools, Says They're Stuck In Factory Era By Mitchell Landsberg February 18, 2012 Reporting from Columbus, Ohio— Republican GOP hopeful Rick Santorum may be the most prominent homeschooler in America. So it might not have been surprising that, on Saturday, he told a conservative Christian audience that he intended to homeschool his children in the White House. In his remarks to the Ohio Christian Alliance, however, Santorum went further, seeming to attack the very idea of public education. In the nation’s past, he said, “Most presidents homeschooled their children in the White House.… Parents educated their children...

    Imagine that your son has a habit of sprinkling copious amounts of bird seed and setting up impromptu birdbaths in your yard. You then notice that your property is starting to seem like an aviary, and, as beautiful as the birds are, they’re becoming bothersome. So you approach your husband and ask him to remedy the problem. He then promises to build a scarecrow, but doesn’t complete the job. And, when the situation persists and you again ask him to help, he simply scratches his head and replies, “You know, it’s just not realistic to remove all these birds from...

There may be good news for the Jewish residents, however: Two of Israel’s leading lawyers, Attorney Dr. Yaakov Weinroth and attorney Dr. Harel Arnon, published a legal opinion on Tuesday, according to which there is already a legal solution to prevent the demolition of the outposts. Weinroth and Arnon found that the solutions are legal under the law which currently applies in Judea and Samaria. In their opinion, the two lawyers...
  • McCotter Trailblazes Social Security Prosperity

    On September 12, the pioneering Rep. Thaddeus McCotter introduced trailblazing legislation providing workers the freedom to choose personal savings and investment accounts to finance half of their future Social Security benefits. This legislation would completely solve the future Social Security financing problem, without cutting benefits or raising taxes, as officially scored by the Chief Actuary of Social Security. Indeed, because standard, long-term market investment returns are so much higher than what Social Security even promises, workers with personal accounts will enjoy higher rather than lower benefits. Moreover, the legislation would result in the greatest reduction in government spending in world...

    NBC's Today ^ | 8 Sep | Linn poll from Pew Research Center and The Washington Post suggests that none of the ideas is a guranteed clear winner in the eyes of the public. For example, 36 percent of Americans think additional infrastructure spending would do a lot to help the nation’s job situation, while 21 percent think an infrastructure plan wouldn’t do anything at all. When it comes to cutting taxes on businesses, as many leading Republicans suggest, there’s a similar pattern: 31 percent say it would do a lot to create jobs, while 27 percent think it wouldn’t do anything at all. It's the same...

    Solution number two in the "seven breakthrough solutions" has been a point of contention between faculty and the board of regents as it is eerily similar to the Student Led Awards for Teaching Excellence commonly called SLATE. Though Chancellor McKinney initiated the program in 2008 designed to reward teachers for excellence in the classroom. Chancellor McKinney modeled the SLATE program off a similar one at The University of Oklahoma, which was lobbied for by the father of Jeff Sandefer, the writer of the "seven breakthrough solutions." Professor Jamie Grunlan, who gave an impassioned speech May 26 to the board of...

    “WE’RE going for a trip”, Sakina remembers her older sister saying. Orphaned and poor, the girls were happy to leave their home in Kolkata. Taken 1,300km to Kotla, a village on the wheat plains south of Delhi, the 12-year-old Sakina was dumped in the arms of an older man while her sister fled. The man, a wage labourer, had paid over 5,000 rupees ($100, today) to a dalal, or broker, who arranged to ship unwanted girls to places short of them. ........... A skewed sex ratio may instead be making the lot of women worse. Sociologists say it encourages abuse,...

    I have been thinking about what is driving our country closer and closer to the brink of civil war. One that is surely coming and the left is violently ratcheting it up each day, but this has been coming for generations. The left says big business is taking advantage of the workers; executives make gazillions while the worker (blue and white collar) is often left with very little. Also, businesses themselves are often exempt from paying any taxes. There is some truth in this. The right says at least half of the people in the country don't even pay taxes...
