  • Obama says America will be 'OK' Despite the Republican Sweep of the 2016 Election

    Despite devastating Democrat losses in the 2016 Election, President Obama left a small message of hope for his constituency during his final press conference: He said, "At my core, I think we're going to be okay." If his comment sounded vaguely survivalist, it's for good reason. As Washington faces a looming change of power in two days, President Obama has yet to address staggering Democrat losses that extend far beyond the election of Donald J. Trump. The Trump administration coupled with the success of fellow Republicans has effectively given Republicans control every branch of American government. Republicans have just won...

    Sergio Frau suspects Plato was writing about a tidal wave on Sardinia... Writer and journalist Sergio Frau is another. After researching the island for a decade, Frau suspects a mysterious disaster that devastated Sardinia 3,200 years ago was in fact a tidal wave, which boosts the theory that Sardinia and Atlantis are one and the same, reports the Guardian. Stefano Tinti, an expert on tidal waves who recently visited the island with Frau along with a dozen other experts, says 350 tidal waves have occurred in the Mediterranean over the last 2,500 years and one might explain why all of...

    "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations.It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."

There's an item or 3 in this one to potentially trouble the RC's and Maryolators, . . . as well as some potentially troubling things for some Calvinists, however. Read at your own risk. Those exposed to The Truth are responsible before God for what they do about and with The Truth.On the other hand, ignorance affords no eternal protection....

    Good evening. We have a great deal of new polling that’s flooded in. Much of it is interesting too, so rather than pick and choose which polls I’ll cover in depth and which I will omit, instead I’ll give a quick look at all the good ones. We’ve got Senate races in Nevada, Connecticut, West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Missouri, and Delaware, plus races for Governor in Illinois, Rhode Island, New York, Hawaii, and Florida. I told you it was a lot.
  • Goal: 100 House Seats

    The only limit on Republican gains in the midterm elections is that the GOP may be aiming too low. There are dozens of additional House seats we may be able to win if we would just adjust our sights upward. An analysis of the published polling data on eighty House races indicates that there are 54 districts now represented by Democrats in which Republicans are now ahead and another 19 where they are within five points and where the Democratic incumbent is under 50% of the vote. That’s 73 likely wins. (The undecided vote always goes against the incumbent, so...

    A three-metre tidal surge is predicted to surge down the English Channel in the next 12 hours posing an "extreme danger to life and property", experts have warned. Coupled with storms and high tides, the wave could leave swathes of the east coast under water, according to the Environment Agency. A combination of gale force winds off the coast of Scotland and high tides are expected to cause floods which could breach sea defences. • Nine severe flood warnings issued by Environment Agency • Surge expected to hit east coast in next 12 hours • Police on standby to evacuate...

    At the southern end of Madagascar lie four enormous wedge-shaped sediment deposits, called chevrons, that are composed of material from the ocean floor. Each covers twice the area of Manhattan with sediment as deep as the Chrysler Building is high. On close inspection, the chevron deposits contain deep ocean microfossils that are fused with a medley of metals typically formed by cosmic impacts. And all of them point in the same direction — toward the middle of the Indian Ocean where a newly discovered crater, 18 miles in diameter, lies 12,500 feet below the surface. The explanation is obvious to...

    Sound from last December's huge tsunami-causing earthquake was picked up by underwater microphones designed to listen for nuclear explosions. Scientists this week released an audio file of the frighteningly long-lasting cracks and splits along the Sumatra-Andaman Fault in the Indian Ocean. The spine-tingling hiss and rumble is an eerie reminder of the devastation and death that is still being tallied in the largest natural disaster in modern times. At least 200,000 people are thought to have died as a result of the magnitude 9.3 earthquake, the tsunami, and the lack of food, drinkable water and medical supplies that followed. The...

    Tsunami, The Town Left Without Women By Richard Lloyd Parry in Indonesia A community of 6,000 woke up to find the tsunami had swept away its womenfolk WHEN the survivors of Lampuuk had picked themselves up out of the mud of the tsunami, several appalling facts became clear. The first was that their town no longer existed. The second was that four out of five of its former inhabitants were dead. But it took a while to realise the strangest thing of all: that among those who made it to higher ground, or who kept their heads above the surging...

    HONG KONG -- A Hong Kong-based Briton survived the deadly tsunami that devastated Thailand's coastlines by abandoning a pregnant woman clinging to him and later smashing his knee cap when his leg was trapped underwater, a Hong Kong newspaper reported today. Scotsman Andrew Keith, 35, was swept away by waves that inundated the Thai resort island Phra Thong and found himself weighed down by a pregnant Swedish woman who wrapped her arms around him, the South China Morning Post reported. "It was like being in a washing machine. We were being tumbled over and over under the water." "As the...

    I was awakened just after dawn by the person who had duty that morning telling me there had been an earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale in the Indian Ocean, and that a tidal wave had already hit some coastal areas. I was told that about over 1,000 people were reported dead. An 8.9 earthquake is an extraordinary event. We knew that there had been a tidal wave. We also knew that first reports in major disasters normally underestimated casualties. The reason is simple. In a really bad disaster, the first thing to go down are communications. The areas...

    WASHINGTON - The United States has to be prepared to support two phases of disaster relief in the area hit hard by the Dec. 26 tsunami, U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe said Wednesday. The most expensive part, he said, will be the portion involving rebuilding. The Arizona Republican, who is the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee's Foreign Operations subcommittee, will be visiting the tsunami disaster area of Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand within a week after going to Antarctica. He is reviewing science projects while in Antarctica. The congressman left Wednesday night. The U.S. government is providing a great deal...

    The intention of the framers of the U.S. Constitution was to create a strong federal government, limited in authority by specific enumerated powers divided among three separate branches of government; providing a built in system of checks and balances. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the people authorized the government to tax and spend their hard earned dollars on whatever the government deems is best for the country. No, their authority was to be concerned with things such as; treaties with foreign governments, providing for the defense for our citizens, protecting the citizens’ rights to life, liberty, and...

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil prices slid on Monday on expectations that more mild U.S. weather at the start of the New Year will limit heating oil demand. U.S. oil prices (CLc1: Quote, Profile, Research) dropped 79 cents to $42.66 a barrel by midday trading in Asia. London's International Petroleum Exchange (IPE) was shut for a holiday and will reopen on Tuesday. The winter has been unusually warm thus far in the U.S. Northeast, the world's biggest heating oil market, and normal to above-normal temperatures are expected to prevail over the next few days, forecasters Meteorlogix said.
