While publicity hounds Barack and Michelle Obama primped and preened over in Ireland and searched out the roots of their “Irish ancestors”, before heading out to Berlin, tens of thousands of Tea Party stalwarts will be out in force on Capitol Hill today searching for their country.
It’s getting to the point where civilians need a ‘Truth Meter’ before venturing out the door each morning; a Truth Meter for a public at large steadily bombarded with lies, propaganda and more lies each waking day.
In Venezuela, savvy shoppers are hunting down scarce supplies of toilet paper with a smartphone app. The smartphones, compact packages of electronics, are several generations more advanced than the white square, but they are available when the toilet paper isn’t, because, unlike the toilet paper, they aren’t subsidized and price controlled.
While Hugo Chavez did at one point unveil a Chavezphone for the poor, he succumbed to the wonders of Cuba’s Socialist medicine before they could become as big as Obamaphones. But if Venezuela ever falls to the dumbphone, then there won’t be a smartphone app to find a smartphone with.
The Service Employees International Union, the Children’s Television Workshop (CTW), under the umbrella of SEIU.org have sent a letter on June 17, 2013, to their like-minded contributors who fund Democrat campaigns and socialist causes and organizations around the country.
Tarek Mitri, the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Representative for Libya, delivered a dose of reality to the UN Security Council in his briefing on June 18th regarding the bleak political and security conditions in that beleaguered country. While he does not think that Libya was in imminent danger of complete collapse and that opportunities remained for progress through inclusive political dialogue, Mr. Mitri believes there are very serious problems that require significantly more assistance from the international community to help resolve.
WINNIPEG, MB: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) released an audit letter today showing serious concerns with expenses being racked up at the Tataskweyak Cree Nation related to Manitoba Hydro projects. The expenses are part of $224 million racked up by all northern reserves that Hydro has paid for, but refuses to release a single receipt.
If you’re looking for the part of the story where they describe a baby being sucked out of a woman’s womb after having its skull crushed, quit wasting your time. If you’re looking for an interview with a doctor who explains exactly how the baby is killed and disposed of, you can stop now.
Here’s how they do business. A piece of legislation is going to cost trillions of dollars, but Members of Congress don’t want the public to see that. Instead, they have the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) look at the bill for just the first 10 years—and they move any costly items off into the future on purpose.
In a Jerusalem Post article (“Blessed are the peacemakers” June 7, 2013) Gideon D.Sylvester, the British United Synagogue rabbi in Israel, told the anecdote of two member of the Bereaved Parents Forum, an association of Israeli and Palestinian parents whose children have been killed in the conflict, who travelled to a meeting held at the British House of Lords. Their host took them aside and explained, “On this side of the room sit the Lords who back the Palestinians, and on the other side will be the friends of Israel. Now you each know your supporters and opponents,” as if they were entering into a prize fight contest. The bereaved parents were shocked. “We have set aside our grievances and have come to share ideas about uniting for peace, and you who live in the tranquility of England wish to make divisions! If you cannot help, at least don’t make matters worse.”
In 2010, fuel cell manufacturer Bloom Energy unveiled its “Bloom Energy Server.” The unveiling and subsequent press attention claimed that these “Bloom Boxes” were green, efficient and represented the future of energy production. But three years later it appears that Bloom Energy’s success can be attributed to savvy PR and government subsidies—not a superior product. After reviewing Bloom’s products in the real world, it appears that not only are Bloom Boxes functionally the same as natural gas power plants, but they are less efficient.
US President Barack Obama recently appointed Susan Rice as national security adviser and nominated Samantha Power as the next US ambassador to the United Nations. Many viewed the Rice appointment as a response to Republican criticism of her role in the scandal over the Benghazi attack. Still, the two moves add a twist to the administration’s foreign policy, and the Middle East should take note: liberal interventionism may be back. If so, this may signal definite advantages for Israel.
Saying there’s a bright side to amnesty may seem much like talk of the advantages of malignant cancer. But this won’t be a pie-in-the-sky article about the “economic benefits” of new workers, expanding the tax base or the wonders of “diversity.” There is no Ayotte-Rubio flip-flop here; in fact, for those who don’t know me, I’ve long called for a halt to even legal immigration. And understanding why is necessary to put amnesty’s “bright side” in perspective.
WASHINGTON D.C. — The Institute for Energy Research (IER) released today a white paper entitled “Evaluating Voluntary Consumer Adoption of Green Pricing Programs.” The result of the analysis by IER policy experts examines information gathered from 31 utility companies across the nation that offer “opt-in” green pricing initiatives as a way to expand the adoption and utilization of renewable energy sources. IER’s analysis found that customer willingness to pay for Green Pricing Programs is directly correlated with the ability to pay and afford the added costs of a program which offers no immediate tangible benefit in exchange for a promise of future environmental gain. Additional findings include:
In a move that underscores the social depravity of north-west Europe, Belgium is now seriously considering legislation that would legalize euthanasia for children under the age of 18. The adult right to die can (pardon the pun) already be executed by doctors in Belgium and Holland with laws on the books since 2002. (The Dutch allow it for age 13+)
A wit once observed a persistent truth: “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” That has been especially the case with respect to “space weather” – a phenomenon associated with intense solar activity, known by scientists as coronal mass ejections and popularly as solar flares. If oriented in the wrong direction, one of these flares could blanket much of the earth with devastatingly powerful bursts of energy known as electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
Ray loves to tell stories about his childhood of long ago America - his eyes twinkle with excitement. He was a teen in rural West Virginia of 1950, carefree and happy. His parents’ farmhouse lacked indoor plumbing, not that it bothered the boys that much. They bathed every Saturday evening before church in the family washtub in the kitchen after the adults in the household.
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Members of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and their Russian Federation Air Force counterparts will meet in Ottawa this week to finalize this year’s live-fly VIGILANT EAGLE 2013 exercise.
Any remaining doubts as to the mental fitness of Senator Marco Rubio (R-FLA) to represent conservative thought and American ideals in the debate over amnesty were shattered when the Senator offered the following convoluted justification for legalizing the 11 million(closer to 40 million!), invaders before securing the border.
The election of Hassan Rowhani as Iran’s president is surprising – not only in the very fact of his election, but particularly in the large majority he received, which made a second round of voting unnecessary. Prior to the elections, two candidates were considered to lead the race: Saeed Jalili, who is Iran’s national security advisor and head of the Iranian nuclear negotiating team, and is very close to Supreme Leader Khamenei; and Tehran’s popular mayor, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf. In the elections themselves, Rowhani earned 50.7 percent of the total vote, with each of the other candidates receiving less than 17 percent.
If you live in scenic Logan County West Virginia, you should know that your out-of-control police and judges are willing to arrest and prosecute 14-year-olds if they’re wearing the wrong t-shirt. That’s the lesson being learned by middle-schooler Jared Marcum, who was suspended, and subsequently arrested, after refusing to remove the NRA t-shirt he wore to class.
The so-called “Arab Spring” has been growing since 2010 when a man in Tunisia burned himself to death in protest at his treatment by police. But it has little to do with Arabs and far more to do with Muslims. Most of the countries involved are not Arab countries at all.
While the nation tries to come to grips with the cascade of scandals involving the Obama administration, a significant phenomenon has been occurring. It is the demise of the global warming/climate change hoax that has driven national and international policies since the 1980s.
Directed from within the bowels of the most corrupt international organization on planet Earth, the United Nations, the hoax originally generated the Kyoto Protocols in December 1997 to set limits on the generation of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The UN’s climate charlatans claimed that CO2 was causing the Earth to dramatically warm. It was a lie. The U.S. Senate unanimously refused to ratify it and, in 2011, Canada withdrew from it.
The rumours began circulating as early as 2004, Chris Rennard party election chief mastermind of 10 by-election gains, guilty of unwanted sexual advances and beyond. The architect of ‘pavement politics’ sent a young prospective female candidate running from his room in tears in what became known as the ‘Peterborough incident’. Rennard curiously took a back seat in the party in 2009 for the infamous family and health reasons – code for ‘I’ve been busted and we’ve begun a cover-up’.
