Understanding the Uranium One “Scandal”

By Doug Hagmann

Understanding the Uranium One Scandal
Despite assertions by Hillary Rodham Clinton that the Uranium One scandal has been debunked as “fake news,” there exists ample evidence to suggest otherwise—with additional corroborating evidence being revealed almost daily. In today’s environment where few people care to read a report that extends beyond a sentence or two, the facts behind the Uranium One scandal are often readily dismissed due to its transactional complexity, the complicity of those involved, and the media’s collusion in keeping this story under wraps.



Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze!

Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze
I have a vivid memory of putting on my mother’s high heels and covering my head with the veiled hat she wore on special occasions. All decked out, I made my way up The Boulevard in New Haven to our neighbor’s home about four houses away.

A plea for VA housing funds - Los Angeles Times

A plea for VA housing funds - Los Angeles Times
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) needs to immediately start building new, permanent, supportive-housing on VA property in Los Angeles (not rehabbing old, vacant rat-infested buildings by so-called non-profits who get 70-year leases essentially rent free), and stop warehousing our war-injured Veterans with welfare checks (VASH-HUD vouchers) with cheap, ramshackle apartments in seedy neighborhoods run by slumlords.

There is no such thing as ‘social justice’

By Dan Calabrese

There is no such thing as 'social justice'
The AP recently published an awful story in which an obviously secular writer told us the sorrow of supposedly Christian anthem-kneelers who are upset other Christians don’t support their protests. The piece is filled with theological vapidness and unfounded assumptions, but the basic gist of it is that these players who claim Christ think it’s the Christian thing to do to support Colin Kaepernick’s “social justice” movement.



Congressmen exposing their genitals on the House floor—getting to go unnamed

Congressman exposing their genitals on the House floor
Anthony Weiner is in the slammer for exposing his genitals via Internet photos,  but congressmen who expose their genitals and grab private parts—on the House floor—not only get away with it but get the privilege of going unnamed.

Genital-exposing politicians (GEP, for short) are said to come from both the Democrat and Republican parties, and, incredibly find protection in the system as it stands.

President Robert Mugabe and Family Thrown out of Power in Zimbabwe
My heart goes out over many miles to the long-suffering people of Zimbabwe this morning, as I learned that Robert Mugabe’s decades-long chokehold on power there appears to have come to an end.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the military has taken power in Zimbabwe.

The News Can Kill You and is doing it to Targeted Enemies Every Day
The News can kill you.  The News of the day is now a weapon as deadly as any other.

“Who, What, Where, When and Why”  the 5-Ws the News was weaned on are now: “TAKE HIM (HER) DOWN!”

Does “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it“, sound familiar to you?

Parents need to tell Google to Take.Their.YouTube-Kids-App. Down

Parents need to tell Google to Take Their YouTube-Kids-App Down
Generations Y (Millennials) and Z (Centennials): this is what your little children are now watching on shocking, mass-distributed Internet videos.

In so-called ‘child-friendly’, ‘family-friendly’ cartoons of the day, millions of your children are watching Spider-Man urinating on Elsa from ‘Frozen’; Mickey Mouse hit by a car and lying there dying in front of a crying Minnie; Pippa the Pig being tortured while screaming and crying.

Ryan Bundy’s Brilliant Opening Statement

Ryan Bundy's Brilliant Opening Statement
Bret Whipple is Cliven Bundy’s attorney in the current trial in Las Vegas, Whipple, in an interview with John Lamb, made some observations on Ryan Bundy’s opening statement, that I will paraphrase. He said that he was impressed with Ryan’s statement because it cut to the chase in common language; he had the courage to speak so calmly and so well, with the pressure on him, and in so short an amount of time. He then pointed out that the jury seemed mesmerized and that the entire courtroom was silent for a few minutes after Ryan competed his statement.

Court Strikes Abortion Buffer Zone Law

NEWARK, NJ - A New Jersey federal court struck down a City of Englewood eight-foot buffer zone that prohibits pro-life speech near abortion facilities. Applying the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous 2014 opinion in McCullen v. Coakley, which held unconstitutional an identically worded Massachusetts buffer zone law, the New Jersey court ruled the ordinance violates the First Amendment.



Taxpayers take a bath with Marine Atlantic

Canada’s federal Crown corporations are a motley bunch. A few, like the Bank of Canada, are mostly viewed as indispensable. Most, such as a litany of museums or port authorities, attract little attention because of their benign purpose and relatively small budgets. Some, such as Canada Post, are now seen as increasingly anachronistic in a rapidly changing world.

Hillary brags that Bill Clinton didn’t use Twitter when he was President ...Twitter didn’t exist unt

HILLARY CLINTON, BILL CLINTON, TWITTER
Her party has abandoned her, her voters are sick of her, and pretty much everyone wishes she’d just go away. That would be enough to silence any normal politician. But, as we all know, Hillary is anything but “normal.” For whatever reason, she’s still roaming the countryside doing interviews, selling books, and desperately clinging to the rapidly waning glow of the spotlight.

The dangerous transgender movement’s big plans for six states in 2018
While campaigning in September for the Virginia House of Delegates, Danica Roem, a 33-year-old transgender-identified gay man who presents as a woman and appropriates female pronouns, released a YouTube advertisement (“Danica Roem: Inspire,” Sept. 25, 2017) showing himself at a bathroom mirror, wearing a dress, applying face powder, and taking pills from bottles labeled as estrogen and a testosterone blocker.

IDEOLOGY SHOULDN’T TRUMP SCIENCE IN SEX ED CURRICULA

IDEOLOGY SHOULDN’T TRUMP SCIENCE IN SEX ED CURRICULA
In a November Pew Research Center poll, an amazing 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or higher believed that a person’s gender “can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth.”  Yet, the scientific evidence is much less clear, and this conflict between science and popular belief is why the Trump administration has just announced a new research effort to ensure that sex education programs “follow the science to improve youth health and well being.”

Manitoba already beating BC and Canada without carbon tax

WINNIPEG, MB: Even without a carbon tax, Manitoba is already showing strong results on environmental “potential indicators” identified by the provincial government, according to a report released today by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. The report, entitled Keeping Score: Measuring Manitoba’s Environmental Performance, shows results already achieved by the province provide a strong case for fighting a federal carbon tax.

A Recipe for Alzheimer’s Disease

A Recipe for Alzheimer’s Disease
What causes Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)? I recently read an article written by Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. I know from my years at Harvard that MIT does not employ dummies. So it’s worthwhile reading her “Recipe for Developing AD.”

The Gardens of Gwyn

The Gardens of Gwyn
Eleanor ‘Nell’ Gwyn was many things in her time. She has remained so for more than 350 years. Commencing literally as a Cinderella—sifting ashes for unburnt fuel, she progressed to peddling turnips, selling ‘strong’ drinks in her mother’s brothel, to leading actress and, for seventeen years, mistress of the ‘Merry Monarch’ Charles II. She also became something of a gardener, owning a fair-sized property with her London townhouse and 40 acres of landscaped grounds up the Thames River at Burford House, Windsor. Both were gifts of Charles.

The Right Man for Healing and a Rare Find

The Right Man for Healing and a Rare Find
I was not sure my ENT specialist was a good fit for me even though I read the glowing praises framed on his office walls, praises coming from his patients, colleagues, and other doctors. The young man seemed to know what he was doing but his bedside manner was brief and rather cold.
I attributed his demeanor to his introverted personality, his professionalism, and to his respect for his patients’ time. Very punctual, he very seldom made anybody wait to see him, he was always on time.
