    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | September 26 | Sundance
    Wow. This is quite remarkable. Michael Savage is a very well known radio talk personality. The Savage Nation is a nationally syndicated talk show that is the second most listened-to radio talk show in the country with an audience of over 20 million listeners on 400 stations across the United States... Shortly thereafter, as Michael Savage discovered the issue and began discussing what was going on in/around the New York broadcast area, all Savage affiliates nationwide cut off the broadcast and replaced the live transmission with a recording of a previous show.
  • The Presidential Debate: Clashing On Energy

    09/26/2016 3:22:11 PM PDT · by bananaman22 ^ | 26-09-2016 | Greg
    In a U.S. election year that has seen scant public discussion of any substantive issues, beyond the building of walls and the deportation of immigrants, the issue of U.S. energy policy has largely stayed outside the realm of popular discussion. But in advance of the first presidential debate on Monday, September 26, it seems a good idea to review each candidate’s energy positions in as much detail as possible. Republican candidate Donald Trump has recently made energy a key part of his platform, arguing that unlocking a “treasure trove” of American energy resources will boost the economy. He has argued...
  • After 75 Years Of Rogue Operations—–The FBI’s Hillary Clinton Email Probe Is The Final Straw

    Fresh proof the FBI’s Hillary email probe was a joke … Yet another surprise revelation suggests strongly that the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail mess was anything but a by-the-book investigation. House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said he learned only Friday that the Justice Department gave immunity deals to Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and two other aides. That brings to five the number of Clintonistas who got a pass in exchange for testimony and/or information. -New York Post ____ The FBI’s erosion of reputation – taking place this very day and minute as a...
  • Exclusive: Google is planning a 'Pixel 3' laptop running the 'Andromeda' OS for release in Q3 2017

    Two independent and reliable sources have confirmed to us that Google is planning a new Pixel laptop to be released in Q3 2017. The project, known internally as 'Bison' and by the informal nickname 'Pixel 3,' will likely be the first brand-new device to showcase Google's combined Android / Chrome OS 'Andromeda' operating system in a laptop form factor. Bison, then, would be the culmination of years of work by Google's Pixel team and Google's Android and Chrome OS teams.We are extremely confident Google plans for the device to run Andromeda. We are also confident that Andromeda is a...

    I am not sure if anyone discussed this but Hillary's team has to have a contingency plan in case Hillary senses she is "going down." Hillary, or someone on her team, will send a signal when it is sensed she is about to go into brain freeze. I can envision a few scenarios. One scenario is one or more persons in the audience will then cause a serious commotion, rushing the stage or setting off fireworks, resulting in "both" candidates having to be quickly escorted off the stage by SS agents. It would be easy for Hillary to make sure...

    Migratory policies around the world have failed, leading to the spread of terrorism, Hungary's foreign minister told the U.N. General Assembly on Friday. Peter Szijjarto said the international community must make it clear that there is no excuse for violating the borders between two peaceful countries and do its best to keep migrants and refugees as close to their home countries as possible. "The uncontrolled and unregulated mass migration offered opportunity for terrorist organizations to send their fighters and to send their terrorists to other countries and continents," Szijjarto said. He added that Hungary is "a Christian country" and expressed...

Only Trump-Clinton has every potential to even more brutal, and way more historic. The stakes could not be higher or more dramatic. The two least popular candidates in the history of US presidential go head to head tonight in what many believe is a winner-takes-all encounter Foreman, famously, wielded what he called his ‘Anywhere’ punch. When a bemused Ali asked his training team exactly what that was, he was told: ‘Anywhere...

The batteries that Samsung uses in the replacement Galaxy Note7 units are said to overheat and lose battery life quickly. The first issue has...

    The shortage stands at 723 pilots this year and is expected to worsen, reaching 1,000 in 2017, with no immediate way to plug the gap because the Air Force needs two years to transform a young officer into a fighter pilot. While active-duty pilot training will increase from 200 this year to 285 in 2017, it won’t begin to replace the lost talent and institutional memory.

    Qatar always wanted to punch above its weight. In Syria, it got the chance. In 2009, Qatar, a leading natural gas producer, approached Syria about routing its planned 1,500 mile pipeline to the gas markets of Europe through Syria’s Aleppo province. Qatar wanted a pipeline straight to Europe as its current gas transport modes were limited to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanker, mostly to Asia with limited spot shipments to Europe or the Dolphin pipeline to the United Arab Emirates and Oman. The pipeline would head north and end in Turkey after crossing Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria. Syria declined...

    You might want to sit down for this. On second thought, keep standing. A study published last month in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that sitting for more than three hours per day is responsible for 3.8%—or approximately 433,000—of all deaths worldwide every year. At this point, it's old news that sitting for long periods of time is bad for your health. But who knew it could be this deadly? According to a press release, researchers looked at data collected from 54 countries between 2002 and 2011. They found that more than 60% of the world's population sits...

    Donald Trump would earn enough votes to win the presidency in the Electoral College based on UPI/CVoter's state tracking poll released Monday. Trump would amass 292 votes and Clinton would get 246 with 270 needed to secure the oval office. But the candidates' leads are narrow enough -- 5 percent or less -- in 12 states to classify them as swing states, meaning 156 electoral votes could be up for grabs. If the battleground states are not counted, the race would be tied 191-191.

Myron Ebell, director of energy and environment policy at the conservative think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, is heading Trump’s EPA transition preparation, E&E Daily reported Monday. Ebell is an outspoken, longtime skeptic of the scientific consensus that human activity is dramatically changing the climate. He often refers to warnings about global warming as climate “alarmism” and is a vocal critic of President Obama’s climate change regulations. Ebell has argued that the Clean Power Plan is illegal and that the Paris...

His entire focus during the campaign was to win. In the final scene of the movie he is standing among the celebrating campaign staffers and the fawning press corp....

CNN reports: In Colorado, likely voters break 42% for Trump, 41% for Clinton, 13% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 3% for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Pennsylvania’s likely voters split 45% for Clinton, 44% for Trump, 6% for Johnson and 3% for Stein. Those divides are well within each poll’s 3.5-point margin of sampling error.In both states, sharp divisions among whites by education are evident, with white college graduates choosing Clinton over Trump...

    So it’s not as though In-N-Out is missing out on an untapped market. The same people who supposedly demand a vegetarian “option” begrudge the meat-eating “option” enough to take a pass. Besides, getting 24,000 signatures on this petition is a joke. They have 300 locations serving up thousands of burgers daily to people who like their product. They’re not going to get too concerned about 24,000 people signing up for a political diktat run by a group that’s half a continent away from its nearest grill. This is the very definition of elitism, and its almost-always-present ignorance and arrogance. America...
