  • State Department's Jen Psaki Explains Why The U.S. Will Trust Yemeni Rebels Chanting "Death to

    Earlier this week the United States and other western powers evacuated Yemen, citing concerns about security in the rapidly deteriorating country. On the way out of the country, U.S. Marines were instructed to destroy their weapons and U.S. vehicles were taken over by Houthi rebels.  Now, without a presence there, the State Department is arguing rebel Houthis can be trusted to keep their word and to respect the U.S. embassy until it can be reoccupied. Houthis have been seen on video calling for "death to America," just brought down the U.S. backed Yemeni government and have ties to terrorism.  Last...

    Hillary Clinton is a former First Lady, a former senator, and a former secretary of state. She is the Democratic nominee for president. But on Thursday, Clinton also gave herself another title: "a mom who works." "I loved what I did," Clinton wrote about her job as a lawyer in an op-ed. "And it was important to me to contribute to my family's finances, especially now that we were having a baby." Clinton recounted learning that the law firm where she worked before her daughter Chelsea was born didn't have a maternity leave policy. Clinton "decided to take matters into...

    The candidate Bush meets with Muslim leaders in Austin, Texas. Abdurahman Alamoudi (right of Bush) heads the sister organization of terror connected IIRO. A CIA report from 1996, obtained by investigators for the lawyer suing a number of Islamic charities on behalf of victims of the 9/11 attacks, reveals that the U.S. government knew that over one-third of the Islamic charities operating throughout the world were aiding known terrorist groups. Many of the charities detailed in the report are Saudi-sponsored and official Saudi government charities are implicated in supporting terrorism. These charities include the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO)...

    Israel's Defense Ministry on Friday responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's claims from a day earlier that the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the West had been successful in improving the security situation in the Middle East, and that even Israel acknowledges this fact. "The Israeli defense establishment believes that agreements have value only if they are based on the existing realities, and have no value if the facts on the ground are completely opposite of those upon which the agreement rests," the statement read. "The Munich Agreement did not prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust, precisely...

    U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday said the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the West had been successful, and said that even Israel acknowledges this fact. The comments by Obama were made during a press briefing at the Pentagon, which largely focused on the report that Washington paid $400 million to Iran. Obama denied at the briefing that the money was ransom for the return of Americans who were held in Tehran. But he also addressed the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic, saying, according to RealClearPolitics, “It has been well over a year since the agreement with Iran...

Obama called the agreement “a substantial success” and said that Iran...

The private spaceflight company brought the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back to Earth for a soft touchdown tonight (Dec. 21), pulling off history's first-ever rocket landing during an orbital launch. (Blue Origin, the company led by founder Jeff Bezos, landed its New Shepard booster successfully last month, but that occurred during a suborbital test.) The Falcon 9 blasted off at 8:29 p.m. EST today (0129 GMT on Dec. 22) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, tasked with delivering to orbit 11 spacecraft...

    Last week, Schools Chancellor Carmen Farińa released a statement celebrating citywide gains in Advanced Placement test scores for the second year in a row. In particular, the chancellor’s press release noted that more black and Latino students are taking AP exams than last year. But a quick peek behind the veil of a heartening press release reveals a very different, very alarming picture: More minority students may be taking AP tests, but they are not passing them. Data show that 97% of our black students and 95% of our Hispanic students citywide are unprepared to pass a single AP exam....

    The prevailing social dogma of our time — that economic and other disparities among groups are strange, if not sinister — has set off bitter disputes between those who blame genetic differences and those who blame discrimination. Both sides ignore the possibility that the groups themselves may differ in their orientations, their priorities, and in what they are prepared to sacrifice for the sake of other things. Back in the early 19th century, an official of the Russian Empire reported that even the poorest Jews saw to it that their daughters could read, and their homes had at least ten...

Conservatives say big government is stifling people's chances to move upward. Barack Obama says growing inequality of wealth is holding people down.

    Gov. Bobby Jindal is battling to protect Louisiana’s fast-growing school voucher program from an all-out attack by the Obama administration. The Justice Department claims the state’s private schools are defying a decades-old federal desegregation order. In November, a judge ruled the Department could monitor Louisiana's voucher program, even though 90 percent of the 6,750 students who use the Louisiana Scholarship Program are minority, and 85 percent are black. Jindal filed a 38-page response to the ruling earlier in January, asking a judge to overturn a 1976 "white flight" case that prohibited giving public funds to all-white private schools. "The state...

    Fifty years of Democrats running the city of Detroit led to it filing for bankruptcy last week. Unsustainable demands from its 48 unions gradually drove out private industry, as government became the largest employer. Its shrinking tax base can no longer support the massive pension debt obligations and still provide a minimum level of city services. Nearly half of the city’s debt is to underfunded pension plans and retirees. Mitt Romney presciently warned in 2008 that if the government bailed out the automakers, it would ultimately destroy Detroit. “Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it,...
  • Do Gay Men Have a Genetic Advantage Over Straight Men in Building Successful Careers?

    07/12/2013 10:31:02 AM PDT · by pinochet · 93 replies
    Gay people make up only 2 percent of the people in society. How did they end up having so much power, that they are able to impose their will on 98 percent of the population in America and other Western nations? I am aware that social conservatives are uncomfortable discussing genetic reasons, because it gives gay radicals an excuse to engage in sin. But acknowledging a genetic factor does not remove moral responsibility from gay people, and they remain under obligation to engage in Biblical sexual behavior. Gays will be put in the same situation as married men who are...

    New study shows a strong correlation between bullying, social competence, and positive job evaluations Despite the awareness of workplace bullying and the resistance to it by employers and employees, many workplace bullies achieve high levels of career success, according to a new study from the University at Buffalo (UB) School of Management. Published in the Journal of Managerial Psychology, the study found that some workplace bullies have high social skills that they use to strategically abuse their co-workers, yet still receive positive evaluations from their supervisors. The study marks the first attempt to measure the relationship between being a bully...
  • How to Spell Success

    The annual ritual known as the Scripps National Spelling Bee came and went last week with kids spelling words that, I suspect, many with graduate degrees couldn't spell. The winner was Arvind Mahankali, a 13-year-old eighth-grader from Bayside Hills, N.Y. Mahankali is the first boy to win the title since 2008. There is a lesson to be learned from the success of these young people, including the ones who came close to winning but didn't. It is the value of persistence. Mahankali won this year by spelling the German word "knaidel." He lost the bee three times before and was...

    It's the beginning of a new year and a great chance to start over -- but how? Here are 10 ways to gain a fresh start in 2013. 1) What's past is past.

    Full Headline = Sign of National Resentment for the American Way of Life: Kristof Angry About Private Generators During Sandy RUSH: Now, over the weekend, a columnist in the New York Times by the name of Nicholas Kristof wrote a piece. He's all upset about the electrical grid failing in the Northeast during Hurricane Sandy. But that's not what made him mad. What made him mad was the reliance that some people had on private generators. He was upset about that, that some people had them and other people didn't. Here's the short version, according to David French at National...

    Riding a wave of confidence after his re-election victory, President Obama is eager to collect scalps from the class war he appears to have won. Americans, Obama said in his postelection news conference earlier this month, "want to make sure that middle-class folks aren't bearing the entire burden and sacrifice when it comes to some of these big challenges. They expect that folks at the top are doing their fair share as well." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., echoed this point in a fundraising pitch sent out on Monday: "Voters sent a clear message to Republicans in the election:...

    When British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was asked what might knock his administration off course, he famously responded, "Events, dear boy, events." There's a lot of truth to that. At any point in time, an unexpected event can throw the political world into turmoil. However, more often than not, it's not the blindside hit that gets you so much as the freight train you've seen coming for miles. When Barack Obama came into office, he had a number of serious challenges to deal with and not only has he effectively addressed very few of them, many of them have worsened...

    The real problem is that about half the country believes that business and the success that might flow from business is somehow contrived. About half the country believes that success is assigned, whimsically or arbitrarily, by guys in blue blazers who flick their cigar ashes at those whom they do not wish to succeed. It doesn't work that way, and we know it doesn't work that way. Mitt Romney, for example, was successfully portrayed to about half the country as a fellow who had it made from the beginning. His old man headed up a car company. He must have...
