  • [From 7/18/15]Hillary To ‘Black Lives Matter’ Activists: Maybe I’ll Just Talk To White People

    Activists from the Black Lives Matter movement finally got some face time with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and things did not go well. Footage from the conversation, which took place in New Hampshire on August 11, was finally released late Monday night and shows Hillary getting testy with the black activists. “The piece that’s most important, and I stand here in your space and I say this as respectfully as I can,” Julius Jones, one of the activists, said to Hillary Clinton, “but if you don’t tell black people what we need to do, then we won’t tell you...

    Charles Koch warns politicians are offering ‘frightening’ answers to improve society By Matea Gold July 30 at 9:06 PM COLORADO SPRINGS — Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch on Saturday chastised the political class, saying that those seeking public office were offering "frightening" answers and largely failing to promote a society that provides opportunity for all. “Our goal is to unite people from all walks of life to work for what we call a free and open society — a society of opportunity, of free speech, free exchange, and what we call permissionless innovation,” Koch told conservative donors assembled in a hotel...

    The day Gil Levin says he detected life on Mars, he was waiting in his lab at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, watching a piece of paper inch out of a printer. Levin snatched the sheet and scrutinized the freshly inked graph. A thin line measuring radioactive carbon crept steadily upward, just as it always did when Levin performed the test with microbes on Earth. But this data came from tens of millions of miles away, where NASA's Viking lander was — for the first time in history — conducting an experiment on the surface of Mars. "Gil, that's life,"...

    3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a method of creating almost anything you can think of by using a computer-controlled printer. 3D printing takes digital files and transforms them into real, three-dimensional, solid products. With a 3D printer, you are able to design and manufacture everyday items such as shoes, jewelry, auto parts, medical equipment, homes, and even artificial organs right in your own home or office! The process begins with creating a virtual design of the object you want to make. This design is made in a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) file, using a 3D modeling program which...

    It’s a hot summer night, and leaders of the Satanic Temple have gathered in the crimson­-walled living room of a Victorian manse in this city renowned for its witch trials in the 17th century. They’re watching a sepia-toned video, in which children dance around a maypole, a spider crawls across a clown’s face and eerie, ambient chanting gives way to a backward, demonic voice-over. The group chuckles with approval. They’re here plotting to bring their wisdom to the nation’s public elementary school children. They point out that Christian evangelical groups already have infiltrated the lives of America’s children through after-school...

    On the third of his four voyages, Columbus sailed south along the west coast of Africa before heading west across the Atlantic Ocean. Then he was caught in the doldrums, a notorious condition of no winds and intense heat. After drifting aimlessly for eight days and running out of drinking water, Columbus vowed if the winds returned, he would name the first land he saw after the Holy Trinity. The winds returned and on JULY 31, 1498, he sighted an island off the coast of Venezuela which coincidentally had three peaks rising from the bay. Columbus obtained fresh water for...

    PITTSBURGH, Pa., July 30 - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton toured the U.S. Rust Belt on Saturday, promising to reject bad international trade deals during a factory visit and securing the endorsement of investor Mark Cuban at a Pittsburgh rally. The Dallas Mavericks owner, who said as recently as last month that there was a "good chance" he would vote for Donald Trump, instead criticized the Republican nominee's leadership in front of an energetic crowd. "Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating," Cuban said. You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff!" Cuban added,...

    COLORADO SPRINGS (CNN) —The powerful political network helmed by Charles and David Koch is ruling out running advertisements intended to hurt Hillary Clinton, another sign of their insistence on avoiding the presidential race. The Koch network has previously said they will not back Republican candidate Donald Trump, but on Saturday officials told reporters that they would not run negative Clinton spots, a position taken by some Republican groups that are uneasy with the controversial GOP standard-bearer. The group is laser-focused on maintaining and expanding the Senate majority -- in the midst of a $42 million television advertising campaign focused on...

    Less than a week before the 2016 Rio Olympics are set to start, the Brazil Ministry of Justice terminated its contract with a private firm that was supposed to provide security for the games. The ministry cited “incompetence and irresponsibility” from the Rio de Janeiro-based firm Artel, and moved to strip them of their duties. It’s not hard to see why the Ministry of Justice reacted so harshly. With only a few days left until the first venues are set to open, Artel admitted that they have only hired 500 security personnel. They were supposed to hire 3,400. These staff...

    The most "inefficient" candidate? Why, Lindsey Graham, of course. I know, I know. Did ANYONE vote for Lindsey Graham? Well, 5,623 souls to be exact, or enough to fill up a Columbia 1-AA football stadium. Since Graham paid a total of $5,700,248 for all those votes, or $1,013.74 per vote, he wins the prize for electoral waste. . . In fairness to Graham and others who exited the race early, generally those who invested a ton of money in the early primaries only to fail and drop out were by far the least efficient candidates. For example, Jeb Bush spent...

    Hillary Clinton made history, but that may not be enough to get her to 270. Some Democrats are still worried that Donald Trump might win, given the level of volatility this election cycle, how Trump deflects media attacks like Teflon, and the high level of Democratic discontent within their own ranks over ClintonÂ’s nomination. Those feelings were intensified when leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee showed staffers trying to find ways to derail Sen. Bernie SandersÂ’ campaign. The amount of booing, even during ClintonÂ’s acceptance speech Thursday night just highlighted those divisions within the Democratic Party (via The Hill):...

    Billionaire industrialist and conservative benefactor Charles Koch’s expansive political network will not help Donald Trump win the presidency. That’s the message from one of the Koch network’s chief lieutenants as hundreds of the nation’s most powerful Republican donors gathered for a weekend retreat on Saturday. With Election Day just three months away, Koch lamented the state of the 2016 contest during a welcome reception inside a luxury hotel at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. “We don’t really, in some cases, don’t really have good options,” Koch said of the “current political situation.” …

    This week at the Democratic National Convention, much of the focus was not on nominee Hillary Clinton, but on Bernie Sanders and his enthusiastic contingent of young supporters. While some had speculated that Sanders supporters would fall in line after his endorsement of Clinton, it appears that this consolidation has yet to gain any momentum. Bernie supporters, emboldened by the recent DNC email leak, took to the streets in Philadelphia to voice their displeasure with Hillary and the Democrat party as a whole. With chants of “Hell no DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary” and “Lock her up,” the protesters...

    When J.D. Vance was a boy, his beloved grandmother “Mamaw” told her boozer husband that if he ever came home drunk again, she’d kill him. When he did, and passed out on the couch, she got a gasoline can, poured fuel all over him and dropped a lit match on his chest. He survived with mild burns, and later quit drinking. One time when J.D.’s mom took exception to something the boy said in the car, she hit the accelerator and sped up to 100 miles per hour, screaming that she was going to kill them both.

From the nations’s 85,000 mosques, their amplified voices were heard calling upon the faithful to take to the streets and defy the plotters. The people listened. Some bravely stood in front of tanks as they defended the democratically elected president. Around 240 from both sides died and 1,400 were injured. For others the night presented different opportunities as hardline Muslim Sunnis, whipped up to a frenzy, targeted Turkey’s Christian community. In...

The People’s Pundit Daily Presidential Election Daily Tracking Poll finds Mr. Trump at 47.6% to 42.1% for Mrs. Clinton, a lead that is largely fueled by a greater consolidation of the Republican base and a lead among independent voters. Perhaps the biggest story regarding the post convention polling data is the shift toward Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein and the collapse of Libertarian Party candidate, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. On July 19, the first day of the Republican convention, Gov....

    Although the Chamber may present itself as the champion of small businesses, it essentially functions as a money laundry for the world’s largest multi-national corporations, who want to keep their political activity at arm’s length. The Chamber’s $85 million lobbying budget in 2015 dwarfs all others in D.C., and that doesn’t include the over $35 million it spent on political ads in both the 2012 and 2014 election cycles. That money has almost always gone directly into supporting Republicans and trying to unseat Democrats. In an interview with The Intercept after her remarks Thursday night, Lim said she could not...

    It's not surprising that Glenn Beck opposes Donald Trump. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Show on Fox News, Glenn says to Sarah Palin that he wants it easier for immigrants to come into America.

    The "Hawaii Mars II", one of two remaining Martin Mars, performs flybys and drops 7,200 gallons of water for the crowd at the 2016 EAA AirVenture airshow in Oshkosh, WI. This massive flying boat is the world's largest warbird, and an exceptionally rare sight. It was delivered to the US Navy in 1946 and later converted for civilian use as a fire fighting aircraft. During AirVenture, the Mars is flying off of Lake Winnebago just a couple miles east of Oshkosh.

    Katherine Haik’s one-year reign as Miss Teen USA ends Saturday evening in Las Vegas. An active member of her youth group at First Baptist Church in Franklinton, Louisiana, in 2015 Katherine became the youngest-ever contestant to win the pageant. Alas, the then 15-year-old high school freshman did not earn her victory without making a certain compromise – disregarding the Scripture advising that “women should adorn themselves in respectable attire, with modesty and self control.” Well, one needn’t be prudish to wonder whether sashaying across a stage in high heels and a teensy bikini fits the Biblical definition of “modesty.” Especially,...

    Jennifer Lim was presented to the DNC Convention audience as the co-founder of Republican women for Hillary. What the DNC did not tell the audience was Lim’s day job as a lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The fundamental paradigm shift that most people still cannot fathom, is the reality of Donald Trump representing a second party. Both the Democrats and Republicans are unified under a globalist, financial, Wall Street, umbrella. There is no difference between the Democrats and Republicans – they are the UniParty. The UniParty has two wings, Democrats and Republicans, but the overriding goals –and the...
