    Summer of 2009 1) Hurricane Bill 2) big fire on La Palma Island 3) at the same time, same area, Russian subs and surface vessels were operating 4) Wonder of wonders, a Russian cargo ARCTIC SEA ship "disappears" after being fitted at the port of Murmansk.MURMANSK,  in spite of massive multinational hi-tech search and chase operation. 5) eventually the cargo ship is suddenly "found" in the same area off the Cape Verde Islands, where the Russian subs had been operating. 6) same area is home to the Cumbre Vieja Shelf, undersea volcanoes see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumbre_Vieja and: http://www.es.ucsc.edu/~ward/papers/La_Palma_grl.pdf and: http://www.maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mgs/explore/hazards/tsunami/jan05.htm It is...

    I was just reading some of the political websites and found something really surprising: Most of the people who commented on any of the articles weren't actually commenting on the articles at all! Instead, they were either tossing in their two cents worth about some other project entirely; commenting on some other comment; commenting on whether a person commenting had the right to make such a comment at that particular venue; or commenting on the published article in such a way as to make it obvious that they had either misundertood what was written or ......

    For decades the CIA has undertaken operations all over the world to support right wing regimes. In Latin America and elsewhere there tho it seems thier efforts often led to massive amounts of death of civilians with the US govt often looking the other way. Would you folks say the ends justified the means regarding the many regimes the CIA propped up and supported in the name of 'anticommunism'? I dont beleive the idea of imperialism was at play,but its clear the safety of US interests (political and economic) were clearly the goal in these operations

After private Blackwater contractors opened fire in Iraq and killed 14 civilians in September 2007, Obama jumped on it. He went so far as to say his fixes for Blackwater specifically were the the toughest reforms of any Presidential candidate.

"Let's be clear: Congressman [J.D.] Hayworth's continued flirtation with extreme groups that condone racism only opens the door for liberals to falsely paint all opponents of illegal immigration as bigots. Congressman Hayworth should immediately disavow this group’s support and commit to never again associating himself with groups that accept this kind of hateful and counterproductive rhetoric," McCain campaign...

It's not clear what the properties of the algorithm are that Google utilizes for this feature--i.e., how the phrases magically appear, but it's fair to say that they are correlated with the number of searches performed for the combination of words typed by users at a large scale.

    One candidate in next year's gubernatorial race contributed thousands of dollars to Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer and John Kerry. Another wrote $21,000 in checks to Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore and the Democratic National Committee in 2000. A third was a registered Democrat in the early 1970s and has acknowledged supporting George McGovern as the party's presidential candidate in 1972. All three – Meg Whitman, Steve Poizner and Tom Campbell – are vying to become California's next governor, but not as Democrats. They constitute the entire GOP gubernatorial field, a fact that has some Republicans wondering where their candidates' loyalties...

But new Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveying finds Palin losing handily in face-to-face march-ups with her two likeliest challengers for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Among likely Republican primary voters, Palin now trails former Arkansas governor-turned-Fox-TV-host Mike Huckabee by 20 points – 55% to 35%. When her opponent is ex-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Palin loses by...

The video was intended for emotional impact, to convince gullible Westerners that the phony Iranian "democracy" movement is genuine. It is a typical Communist deception tactic to further their global objective. Click the article link to read about it.

An animated version of the symbol used on TV and the internet had to be dropped because it could trigger fits in thousands of people. The £400,000 logo, a graffiti-style spelling of 2012 in shades of pink, blue, green and orange, was branded “hideous” when it was launched on Monday. And Olympics bosses were left squirming with embarrassment after an epilepsy group reported 12 cases of people collapsing through looking at it. Epilepsy Action warned that 23,000...

    Sunny Lee has some really supportive parents. The 20-something gal has made a name for herself as the "Shirley Temple of Porn," thanks in large part to the help of her loving parents, ABC News reports.
