    Author and conservative writer Victor Davis Hanson appeared on Laura Ingraham's FOX News show on Wednesday to weigh in on the Kavanaugh saga and explain how the story of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, is falling apart. *snip* Hanson responded to those who say Ford is incredibly believable: VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Coming into where we are today, she wasn't able to locate the supposed assault or the time or the date and she had the early 80s, the mid-80s, the late 80s, she was a young teenager, a little bit older. But...

    Do any of you have knowledge or experience with voice jammers (not cell phone jammers which are illegal) to block recording of conversations? What about microphone detectors; do they work? What kind of covert microphones do undercover agents use and where do they wear them?

  • With Conservative Media Being Silenced, Will Free Republic Stand Up for Trump? [FReepathon]

    Gateway Pundit has retweeted a report from that Hannity will be fired next week. True or not, it is a reminder that the number of conservative media outlets are few in number. My personal opinion is that the liberal world was shocked that conservative media was able to overcome their attempts at brainwashing during this last election. They thought they had it in the bag. They thought their voice was so powerful that it could not be overcome. Now it appears they are attempting to silence conservative voices one by one. Hannity is definitely one of those pro-Trump voices...

    HOUSTON – A pair of Salvadorian immigrants in the country illegally are accused of a gruesome series of crimes. The pair, alleged members of the criminal gang MS-13, are accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old and holding her for weeks. The suspects have been identified as 18-year-old Diego Alexander Hernandez-Rivera and 22-year-old Miguel Angel Alvarez-Flores. The teen eventually provided the evidence which links the men to the murder of another unidentified teen whose body was found dumped on the side of a Houston road two weeks ago. New details about how the teen was found shot to death in southwest Houston...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is spotlighting violence committed by immigrants, announcing the creation of a national office that can assist American victims of such crimes. He said during his address Tuesday night that the Homeland Security Department's Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement office will provide a voice for people ignored by the media and "silenced by special interests."Critics of the president's approach to immigration say the proposal is misguided, in part because studies show immigrants are less likely to commit crime than native-born U.S. citizens.A look at the proposal and what it aims to do: WHAT IS THE...

    On Tuesday, DHS Sec. Kelly issued an immigration memo shifting the U.S. government’s efforts and resources away from defending illegal aliens to helping their victims. The memo creates the “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement” (VOICE) office, which will act as “liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.” VOICE will address victims’ concerns and provide information regarding the enforcement actions and immigration status of the perpetrator. […] The memo also reallocates “any and all resources” currently used to advocate for illegal aliens and terminates “outreach and advocacy services” provided to them. …
  • How voice technology is transforming computing

    01/09/2017 12:10:59 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 20 replies
    ANY sufficiently advanced technology, noted Arthur C. Clarke, a British science-fiction writer, is indistinguishable from magic. The fast-emerging technology of voice computing proves his point. Using it is just like casting a spell: say a few words into the air, and a nearby device can grant your wish. The Amazon Echo, a voice-driven cylindrical computer that sits on a table top and answers to the name Alexa, can call up music tracks and radio stations, tell jokes, answer trivia questions and control smart appliances; even before Christmas it was already resident in about 4% of American households. Voice assistants are...

    Anybody else listening to Hillary's anti-Trump rant in Reno right now? It is painful. Not so much what she says because it was expected but how painful it is to listen to her voice. She was barely into her speech when it went annoyingly hoarse. Like sand paper vocal chords.

    The man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando on Friday night was not from that central Florida city, and "traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime," Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters Saturday. The gunman -- who authorities say fatally shot himself after shooting Grimmie -- was a 21-year-old white man, and had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, Mina said.

    The American Thinker ^ | 5-7-16 | Thomas Lifson
    Oh, the irony! Hillary Clinton, addressing an enthusiastic crowd in Los Angeles Thursday, did what she does when excited and enthusiastic: she yelled. But in this instance, her message was the bromide Democrats use whenever Republicans are winning an argument. “We’d be a lot better off if we actually talked to each other instead of yelling at each other.” The video, courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon, is a hoot: While I despise Hillary Clinton, I don’t think I am being unfair in pointing out that she has one of the most unpleasant voices ever in a public figure when...

    A mystery arose from the rescue: The police officers who entered the water say they heard a voice calling for help. The mother was dead, but the officers said that they heard an adult's voice calling to them. "The four of us heard a distinct voice coming from the car," Warner told CNN. "To me, it didn't sound like a child's voice." The voice gave the rescuers a surge of adrenaline needed to push the vehicle upright, he said. The mother was dead. The child was unconscious, but her eyelids were fluttering, and the rescuers knew she was alive, Warner...

    Scientists are tuning in on the power of the spoken word, seeking the secrets of charisma. By analyzing the harmonics of pitch, frequency and timbre, researchers at University of California, Los Angeles are discovering how charismatic public speakers use their voices to dominate, rouse and influence a large audience. They are finding that successful politicians in various countries, including Italy, France and Brazil, all share key vocal qualities that strongly affect how people respond to them, independent of the meaning of the words they say or the ideas they express. In a separate analysis of some prominent business leaders, the...

    Move over Pope Francis, there's a new spiritual sensation in town. An Italian nun has become a national star after she wowed judges on her country's version of "The Voice." Sister Cristina, from Sicily, saw all four chairs turn around during her blind audition of Alicia Keys' "No One." The 25-year-old then told the quartet: "I have a gift and I'm giving it to you." Broadcast on Wednesday night, the clip has already racked up more than 30,000 views. It shows the Catholic Sister confidently walking out onto the stage and belting out her version of the hit song.

    On Tuesday night's (Nov. 26) "The Voice" live show, the Top 8 contestants performed "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?," backed by Seattle's Starbucks Chorus, a vocal group that raises money for local charities. But after the performance, the Twitterverse erupted with complaints that the word "Lord" was dropped from the lyrics. Backstage, "Voice" coach Blake Shelton was still trying to get to the bottom of why it happened. "I don't know what, uh -- how it happened, or -- I'm learning about it just like you guys are," Shelton tells Zap2it. "I was sitting in my chair singing that song...
