  • Michael Wolff on Trump—”Every Time You Speak to Him, You Think: This is a Wingnut”

    It’s not exactly breaking news that Michael Wolff believes that Donald Trump is unfit to be President of the United States. That’s the entire thrust of his “Fire and Fury.” But appearing on Morning Joe today, Wolff used a colorful phrase in describing Trump, one that epitomized his low opinion the man. Asked by Joe Scarborough whether Trump was “mentally fit” to be president, Wolff responded: “Every time you speak to him, you think: this is a wingnut. There is something really alarming in ways that you cannot even begin to describe. It’s like you’re riveted to the seat.” Get...

    Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson is still a relative unknown, but according to the latest polls, he’s drawing double digits against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But while Johnson might be gaining fans because of his position on legalizing marijuana—it’s a key part of his campaign’s platform—he swears that, should he actually win the White House, he would quit smoking pot (at least for his first term)....
  • Pope Francis says global warming is 'mostly manmade'

    As the United States Senate prepares to vote on a non-binding resolution on whether or not manmade global warming exists, Pope Francis weighed in on the issue with his most extensive and forceful comments on the subject to date. Let's just say that the pope is not aligned with many Senate Republicans, who doubt the reality and threat of manmade global warming, on this issue. Speaking to reporters aboard his plane while flying to Manila from Sri Lanka, Pope Francis said the "majority" of global warming is manmade, which is a view that is consistent with mainstream climate-science findings. “I...

    Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday said that Israeli society is becoming more and more right-wing and religious. Speaking at a conference of the leadership of the Kibbutz movement, Livni said that while she served as foreign minister, one of her colleagues told her that in the past there were only a few countries that were not sympathetic to Israel, but in the present there are only two or three European countries that are still ready to stand up for Israel, but are finding it difficult to do so...

    Ron Paul has Brothel “Pimpin for Paul” Ron Paul, known for his Libertarian views, has picked up a new endorsement. The Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a Nevada brothel has begun a campaign they are calling “Pimpin for Paul” The owner of the Brothel, Dennis Hof said in a statement “We decided to go with the guy that’s more about state’s rights — and that’s Ron Paul,” Hof did a survey of 500 prostitutes to see which candidate they wanted to support, and the results were close between Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. “We thought real closely about supporting Newt Gingrich —...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A lot of politicians are weighing in with demands before they'll support raising the debt ceiling. Most of their conditions are related to debt, such as put in place a debt reduction plan or cut spending. But some conditions can't even claim to be third cousins once removed. Punish union defenders. Drill, baby drill. Revolutionize federal regulation.

    Yahoo News ^ | 6 Jan 11 | Michael Calderone
    After a seven-month retirement, Helen Thomas has a new journalism gig: columnist for the Falls Church News-Press in Virginia, as the ARLnow blog in Arlington, Va., reports. The 90-year-old retired from Hearst newspapers in June after a media uproar over controversial comments she made about Israel. That move sent shock waves through the press corps and left White House reporters scrambling to see who'd get Thomas' front-row seat in the briefing room. So why'd the News-Press give her another chance?

    Yep, MSNBC’s Larry O’Donnell had another unhinged cable TV moment today. He’s been screaming on the airwaves for years. Joe Scarborough called the latest outburst on his show “psycho talk.” Been there, done that. Again and again and again. Remember this (transript here and non-apology apology here)? And this via Allahpundit circa 2007? *snip* The man is still in need of intensive psycho-therapy. TV exposure is not helping. Rest @ link

    Alan Grayson is a national embarrassment. First there was his comment, “If you get sick, America, the Republicans’ health care plan is this: Die quickly.” Next, appearing on MSNBC, he said of former Vice President Dick Cheney: “I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” he also called Fox News the enemy of America . and then on a radio interview he called a female adviser to the Federal Reserve chairman “a K Street whore." That one forced him to make a formal apology. Two weeks ago...

    Look it was bound to happen, I just didn't think it would happen so soon. The clown prince of the Florida Congressional team finally had a head explosion. It started back in the end of March when Neil Cavuto made mincemeat of him during an interview. That's when Grayson began his slide downhill.

    Much has been made of the "middle" role CNN has taken in the cable news landscape. The position was made evident today in a new segment on American Morning. CNN contributor John Avlon (author of "Independent Nation") will name two people "wingnuts" each week — one from the left and one from the right. This week's picks: Cynthia McKinney and Michele Bachman. He explained in a blog post on CNN.com. "It builds on a simple premise — the far-right and the far-left are equally insane," he wrote. "What's a Wingnut? It's someone on the far-right wing or far-left wing of...

    WASHINGTON (Map, News) - A Republican congressman from Georgia is calling President-elect Obama a Marxist and warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator. Two-term Rep. Paul Broun of Athens cited a July speech that has circulated on the Internet in which Obama called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.

    The numbers are so staggering that they are hard to process mentally and impossible to process logistically: each month some 60,000 Iraqis are voting with their feet against the surge of U.S. forces by fleeing their homes. Since the invasion, more than 2.5 million Iraqis have left for neighboring countries, while 2.2 million have been forcibly displaced within Iraq - too poor to escape the country or blocked from transitioning through more peaceful provinces, which in recent months have erected checkpoints to keep them out. To put it in stark historical terms: the war has created the largest refugee crisis...

    The Seattle Times ^ | 09/18/07 | Dominic Gates
    A former senior aerospace engineer at Boeing's Phantom Works research unit, fired last year under disputed circumstances, is going public with concerns that the new 787 Dreamliner is unsafe. Forty-six-year veteran Vince Weldon contends that in a crash landing that would be survivable in a metal airplane, the new jet's innovative composite plastic materials will shatter too easily and burn with toxic fumes. He backs up his views with e-mails from engineering colleagues at Boeing and claims the company isn't doing enough to test the plane's crashworthiness. Boeing vigorously denies Weldon's assertions, saying the questions he raised internally were addressed...

    I am fed up with all the talk about Rudy`s leadership skills and how he is the right guy for the war on terror. I am very sad to learn that so many are ready to throw Jesus overboard for Rudy what`s his name.Rudy is for everything that our Lord Jesus is against. I am ashamed of all that are even considering voting for the man. He supports abortion and homosexuality. Vote for Rudy and you are saying goodbye to Jesus. You are spitting in God`s face when you support Rudy.

    Pyotr Tchaikovsky INTRODUCTION Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was born on May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk, a small town in present-day Udmurtia (at the time the Vyatka Guberniya under Imperial Russia). He was the son of Ilya Petrovich Tchaikovsky, a mining engineer in the government mines, and the second of his three wives, Alexandra Andreyevna Assier, a Russian woman of French ancestry. He was the older brother (by some ten years) of the dramatist, librettist, and translator Modest Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Pyotr began piano lessons at the age of five, and in a few months he was already proficient at Friedrich Kalkbrenner's...

    Keith Olbermann will continue to be a thorn in Bill O'Reilly's side for at least four more years. NBC News announced Thursday it had agreed to a "second term" with the MSNBC "Countdown" host, whose contract was due to expire next month. The extension will take him into 2011. Besides feuding with Fox News Channel's O'Reilly, Olbermann has become a liberal hero. He has seen his ratings increase since launching a series of anti-President Bush commentaries late last summer. . . .

    The following remarks were prepared by Rep. Tom Tancredo for a speech at the Miami Rotary Club that he was forced to cancel because of threats of violence. Thank you for the kind introduction. Your own congressional representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, wanted to be here and was the first Miami resident to invite me to visit. I would love to have her visit Colorado, but first she has to do or say something controversial. If, for example, she would propose new federal legislation that prohibits Californians from emigrating to Colorado, she would be very popular in Colorado. Probably Denver Rotary or...
