  • Ted Cruz Campaign Running Out Of Cash

    Senator Ted Cruz won a hard-fought partial victory in Texas during last night’s Super Tuesday primary battle. It was the culmination of months of time and money spent meant to culminate in a clear post-Super Tuesday lead in the race to the GOP nomination this summer. The southern states were to be Cruz’s ticket to the White House. For Cruz, that ticket never arrived. The Texas senator remains well behind Donald Trump in the delegate count, and now rumors are swirling of a campaign that has spent almost as much money as did the already-departed Jeb Bush fiasco, with little...

    Are These the Last Days? Pondering a Text of St. Paul's Msgr. Charles Pope -- February 7, 2016 -- Are these the last days? In some sense the planets are aligning. But hold your horses; let's speak carefully of these matters.Last week in the Breviary we read First and Second Thessalonians, which are important source texts for such considerations. I'd like to look at a critical passage from Second Thessalonians, which lays out some important principles for us in the last days, balancing caution with teaching us about the signs that will point to His coming (though not the...

    JENNIFER RUBIN, WASHINGTON POST: What strikes me is not only the outsider/insider, but how backward looking Jeb Bush's ad was. He's talking about what he's done. His family has an esteemed record, one of the great political families of our era. And it's not enough this time. I'm also struck in that opening segment that you showed, how small he seems. How petty, how put upon.
  • Jeb Bush's frustration and loathing on the campaign trail

    Telegraph ^ | 10/25/15 | Ruth Sherlock, and Nick Allen
    The presidential candidate who once promised to run a "joyful" campaign appeared overcome by frustration this weekend, amid poor polling figures and dwindling campaign funds. Not long ago, he was calling himself a “joyful tortoise”. But over the weekend the image Jeb Bush, once presumed heir to the Republican nomination for the White House, had insisted his campaign present of calm, cheerful optimism finally disappeared. A day after being forced to slash his staff, a rattled Mr Bush took to the stage on Saturday night at a rally in what should be safe territory for him, the staunchly Republican state...
  • Is Jeb Bush Getting Ready To Drop Out Of The Race?

    With new reports that Jeb's campaign is hemorrhaging cash and slashing staff salaries, it might be time to start asking when, not if, Jeb will drop out. Jeb Bush has been having a rough couple of days. According to Politico, Jeb has decided to cut the salaries of all his campaign staff in an effort to save dwindling funds. Employees were informed that their salaries would be reduced during a conference call this morning. The move to cut staffers salaries makes sense, as Bush has been hemorrhaging cash for a while now. The most recent financial disclosure reports reveal that...

    Jeb Bush, who has struggled to gain traction among Republican voters for months now, suggested that maybe he doesn't want to be president anyway if it means continued partisan fighting. "If this election is about how we're going to fight to get nothing done, then ... I don't want any part of it," he said in South Carolina, according to CNN. "I don't want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation." "I've got a lot of really cool things...

  • Conchita Wurst caused Balkan floods after Eurovision win, say church leaders

    Conchita Wurst is responsible for flooding that left over 50 people dead earlier this month, church leaders in the Balkans have claimed. The Austrian drag artist, whose real name is Thomas Neuwirth, seized international attention after winning Eurovision 2014 with his hit Rise Like a Phoenix. […] “This [flood] is not a coincidence, but a warning,” Patriarch Amfilohije of Montenegro said, according to “God sent the rains as a reminder that people should not join the wild side.” […] The Russian Orthodox Church has previously described Conchita as an “abomination” and that his victory was “one more step in...

    Harvard professor David Cutler, a so-called architect of Obamacare, says we "could be" witnessing "the beginning of a death spiral" for the unpopular health care bill. Cutler made the comments last night on Fox News: "So when you were on last week I asked you, if they don't get enough people in the exchanges, then what happens?" said host Megyn Kelly. "And you said then the premiums go up very, very high. Now, was that ball put in motion today?" "We don't know yet," said Cutler. "So what the president is trying to do is to say the website is...

    Now that the dust is beginning to settle from the Great Debt Limit Debacle of 2011, one thing is clear: No one won. The Establishment Republican Party lost. The RINO herd was exposed once again as the weak-kneed inheritors of the Neville Chamberlain's sorry legacy. The Authoritarian Left lost. Their overheated rhetoric was exposed for what it truly is: Utter crap on a stick. The Conseravtives and the Tea Party fought gallantly, but they too, went down to defeat as they were unable to defeat the apathy of the Establishment Republican Party. Fuhrer Obama lost when his famed Blitzkrieg stalled...

    We were all supposed to be in the graveyard by now, done in by AIDS, SARS, bird flu, poisoned peanut butter, Hong Kong flu, killer tomatoes, global warming and strangulation by kudzu. But here we are, proof that there really is life after death. Now we learn that we might freeze before the pigs get us. (The chickens failed.) NASA scientists have observed that the solar wind is the weakest since we began keeping such records, that the magnetic axis of the sun is tilted to an unusual degree, and Ol' Sol is the quietest he has been in a...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu warned climate change could wipe out California's farms by the end of the century by destroying snowpack that supplies vital water to the nation's top agriculture state, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday. In his first interview since taking office last month, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist said his home state would suffer some of the most devastating effects of global warming if the nation did not act to slow its advance. "I don't think the American public has gripped in its gut what could happen," Chu told the newspaper....

    Transportation officials in Texas are scrambling to prevent hackers from changing messages on digital road signs after one sign in Austin was altered to read, "Zombies Ahead." Chris Lippincott, director of media relations for the Texas Department of Transportation, confirmed that a portable traffic sign at Lamar Boulevard and West 15th Street, near the University of Texas at Austin, was hacked into during the early hours of Jan. 19. "It was clever, kind of cute, but not what it was intended for," said Lippincott, who saw the sign during his morning commute. "Those signs are deployed for a reason —...

    I don’t want to get you worried, or even mildly concerned. No need to panic. In fact, just read this little piece, and remark with interest that an asteroid is going to get really really close to the Earth on October 31, 2041. It might - I repeat might - have a small, insignificant chance of hitting the Earth and causing regional devastation. Like a 1 in 40,000 chance. Those are pretty good odds when you think of it. Still not panicking? Good. The asteroid in question is called 2006 XG1. It was discovered on September 20, 2006 by the...

    "Neither Denmark nor Norway has a prohibition on sex with animals, as long as the animals do not suffer. On the Internet Danish animal owners advertise openly that they offer sex with animals, without intervention from police or other authorities, Danish newspaper 24timer reports.

    The medical community has gained a better understanding of cancer after a half-century of enormous investments and research, but the disease is still winning the battle. The cancer mortality rate has barely changed in this century compared to 50 years ago, while the death rates of cardiac, cerebrovascular and infectious diseases have declined by about two-thirds, said Harold Varmus, a Nobel medicine prize laureate. "Despite large federal and industrial investments in cancer research and a wealth of discoveries about the genetic, biochemical, and functional changes in cancer cells, cancer is commonly viewed as, at best, minimally controlled by modern medicine,...

    In all kinds of circles, not just among mystics, is a sense of looming events and in some cases, a year is even attached. Of course, this is always the height of the precarious. We warned before the year 2000 not to place too much importance on that specific year (we all recall Y2K). We warn again of the same thing now. Rarely does prophecy pinpoint matters according to a human timeline, for events are conditional and God is infinite, which means He is timeless. Moreover, there is not

    Consumer Prices Up; Retail Sales Rise By MARTIN CRUTSINGER, AP Economics Writer 18 minutes ago WASHINGTON - Consumer prices surged in September by the largest amount in more than 25 years as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita sent energy prices soaring at the fastest pace on record. ADVERTISEMENT The Labor Department reported Friday that inflation jumped 1.2 percent last month. It said that 90 percent of that increase came from a record-setting 12 percent surge in energy prices which reflected gasoline prices that briefly topped $3 per gallon last month after widespread shutdowns of refineries and oil and natural gas platforms...
