    The wildfire that’s been raging in Yosemite National Park for 10 days came within two miles of a reservoir that supplies most of San Francisco’s water on Sunday, Reuters reports. The “Rim Fire,” as it’s called, has already burned 134,000 acres, including 11 homes, and threatened both water and power supplies to the city, about 200 miles to the west. Nearly 3,000 firefighters on the front lines had about 7 percent of the fire contained Sunday.
  • Senators to Unveil the ‘Ex-Patriot Act’ to Respond to Facebook’s Saverin’s Tax ‘Scheme’

    Senators to Unveil the ‘Ex-Patriot Act’ to Respond to Facebook’s Saverin’s Tax ‘Scheme’ Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has a status update for Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin: Stop attempting to dodge your taxes by renouncing your U.S. citizenship or never come to back to the U.S. again. In September 2011, Saverin relinquished his U.S. citizenship before the company announced its planned initial public offering of stock, which will debut this week. The move was likely a financial one, as he owns an estimated 4 percent of Facebook and stands to make $4 billion when the company goes public. Saverin would reap...

    Halloween isn't for another three weeks, but environmental ghouls are on the haunt. A sadistic video released by global warming fear-mongers reveals an inconvenient truth about eco-radicals: They despise the very children for whom they claim to be saving the planet. In the opening scene of "No Pressure," a four-minute short clip produced by carbon reduction activist group "10:10," a teacher urges her elementary school charges to fight climate change by cutting their carbon emissions by 10 percent by Oct. 10. When a few uncooperative students object, the teacher (played by actress Gillian Anderson) presses a red button at her...

    Resentment of the U.S. government and suspicions over the 9/11 attacks have surfaced in writings by the Californian identified as the gunman who shot two Pentagon police officers before he was mortally wounded in a hail of return fire...John Patrick Bedell, 36, of Hollister, Calif., was identified as the shooter. Officials said they'd found no immediate connection to terrorism but had not ruled it out. Signs emerged that Bedell harbored ill feelings toward the government and the armed forces, and had questioned the circumstances behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. In an Internet posting, a user by the name...

    Eminent psychiatrist makes case that leftist thinking is a mental disorder WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder. "Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental...

    Today I spent a few minutes listening to another nationally syndicated talk radio show and felt outraged and embarrassed to hear the guest host (an otherwise bright and well-informed conservative) facilitating the twisted, ignorant mounting public hysteria over the looming menace of a “North American Union.” This paranoid and groundless frenzy has been fomented and promoted by a shameless collection of lunatics and losers; crooks, cranks, demagogues and opportunists, who claim the existence of a top secret master plan to join the U.S., Canada and Mexico in one big super-state and to replace the good old Yankee dollar with a...

    The Red Planet is a symbol of the blood of Christ, which represents the substitutionary Spiritual death of Jesus Christ on the Cross. The blood of animal sacrifices foreshadowed the Cross (Hebrews 9:12-14). The color of the Red Planet os a reminder of blood of Christ, which is the single most important event in history after the re-Creation during the Appeal Trial of Satan. The Red Planet is a reminder to man and angels of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for mankind.The name, Mars, comes from Satan. It refers to Satan as the god of war, who was defeated when...

    Iran is "one step" away from achieving its nuclear ambitions and will celebrate victory before the end of the Iranian year, next March, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today.Speaking in Baneh, a town in the northwest of Iran, near the border with northern Iraq, Mr Ahmadinejad told a crowd that the enemies of Iran were trying to stop the country pursuing its peaceful nuclear programme but that they would soon fail. "They want to keep their monopoly on nuclear energy and thereby dictate on nations," he said, according to a report by IRNA, the state-run news agency. "However, they should know...

They will try to convince the country that 9/11 was not an attack by Islamic terrorists, but criminal mass murder by the Bush administration. Amazingly, fully one-third of Americans now believe that the government is guilty of some conspiracy concerning 9/11. Everything liberals believe about foreign policy was proven to be disastrously false on 9/11. Therefore, liberals must somehow deny that...

    The Lieberman campaign is claiming their website has been hacked. They are blaming the "Nerds" and "bloggers" for their email being down. Sounds exactly like the kind of tactic Karl Rove used in Texas claiming a "break in" and "bugging" of George W. Bush's campaign offices during his run for governor. Allegations were later made that Rove himself was the culprit. Lieberman's campaign blaming the bloggers for this activity stinks. If it looks like a fish, smells like a fish and swims like a fish then it must be a "dolphin".. This will turn out to be just another ploy...

    The founder of Playboy magazine, Hugh Hefner, is worried about his legacy. In preparation for his eightieth birthday, which he celebrated yesterday, he’s been busily filling leather-bound scrapbooks—1,500 of them—about his life and work. He’s arranged to be entombed next to Marilyn Monroe, the actress who posed nude in the first edition of Playboy in 1953. According to a Wall Street Journal article by Matthew Scully, Hefner wants to be remembered as a philanthropist, social philosopher, cultural revolutionary. In fact, Hefner wants to be remembered as anything but what he was: a smut peddler, and the exploiter of women. As...

    As with the weather, a lot of people complain about the U. S. Tax Code, but few do anything about it. The reality is that the opportunity to do something about the tax code doesn't come around very often; maybe once per generation but now, in the year 2005, we have that opportunity. For the sake of all Americans and future generations of Americans, we must not squander this chance. The President made tax reform one of the main objectives for his second term. He has vowed to reform the tax code, to make it "pro-growth, simple and easy to...

    The Herbert Hoover Dike, which is holding back high water in Lake Okeechobee, sprung a leak. This wasn’t the gusher type that normally comes to mind, but rather more seepage than normal, says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Last week’s seepage and one in June were considered minor and have been fixed. But with a tropical storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and already heavy inflow to the lake, Okeechobee’s water will keep rising — increasing the chances of more leaks, damage to the lake’s health and greater releases of water to the Caloosahatchee River and St. Lucie...

    Network coverage of the average, normal Americans, “grandparents,” “honor students,” “soccer moms,” “Republicans,” “Black and white, Democrat and Republican, young and old,” versus the reality of the angry, America-hating demonstrators which the networks ignored but which a writer for National Review Online was unable to avoid in the crowd.     He saw “Bush is the Real Terrorist” signs and discovered many were convinced Bush knew in advance of the 9-11 attacks. “It was like when Hitler burned down the Reichstag,” more than one remarked. The Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld plan, one claimed, “is to build a worldwide planetary death machine.”     In a piece posted...

    Enemies of the State by Timothy Rollins, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher December 6, 2002 With the recent news that the FBI is now on the lookout for special-interest terrorists committing crimes in the United States, it has been reported that those terrorists are not by any means limited to the likes of al-Qaeda and the lunatic fringes associated with them. The terms "special-interest extremism" or rather "eco-terrorism" are often used to better describe what are often called "tree huggers" - the Al Gore society, if you will. These people, who use Gore's book Earth in the Balance as a Bible of...
