    Taxpayers in Mexico Brace for a New Round of Plunder __ How the mighty are fallen. Pemex, Mexico’s state-owned oil giant, once a goliath on the global energy scene, is now dependent on state aid to meet its day-to-day needs. Mexico’s Finance Ministry announced a series of measures aimed at loosening Pemex’s financial strains, giving the state-owned giant a decidedly short-term $4.2 billion liquidity boost. That includes a capital injection of $1.5 billion, as well as a credit facility for a further €2.7 billion to pay down pension costs this year. The company will also receive tax breaks that will...

    IA Director John Brennan said Sunday that releasing the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission report would be a mistake because they contain inaccurate, un-vetted information that could be used to tie Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. "This chapter was kept out because of concerns about sensitive methods, investigative actions, and the investigation of 9/11 was still underway in 2002," Brennan said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He said information in the 28 pages hasn't been vetted or corroborated, adding that releasing the information would give ammunition to those who want to tie the terror...

Wayne rose to fame as one of the most popular movie starts during the 20th century.

    Suicide rates in the United States have soared to a 30-year high, with the most striking surge among middle-aged women and white people, according to federal data released Friday. “Of the top 10 causes of death — including cancer, strokes, heart disease — everything else went down but suicide went up,” he said. “It’s particularly striking among women, because they have traditionally had much lower suicide rates.” For women between the ages of 45 and 64, the suicide rate jumped 63 percent in the 15-year period. It rose 43 percent for men in the same age group, according to the...

    Hillary Clinton so far has been able to skate through the Democratic presidential primary without having to truly confront what ultimately may be her biggest hurdles to the White House: numerous scandals and controversies that so far have taken a backseat in her tooth-and-nail fight with Sen. Bernard Sanders. Mr. Sanders decided early in the race to virtually ignore his opponent’s still-unfolding State Department email scandal, foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and other politically treacherous issues that could spell trouble for the former first lady as she heads toward a November showdown with her Republican opponent.

Of the ten North Dakota delegates on the Cruz slate reached by National Review, five express serious reservations about backing the Texas senator on that crucial first ballot...

LGBT activist groups have been calling on the government to publish the list as part of a shaming campaign called the "Shame List" to pressure Christian colleges to consent to their agenda. The document reveals that an increasing number of colleges are seeking exemptions, and that evangelical Wheaton College is not on the list.

    With the pivotal Indiana presidential primary only two days away, and the decisive California contest still six weeks off, many Republican officials are already privately writing off 2016. Amid the wreckage of the turbulent 2016 nominating season, they still have a challenge in front of them: handicapping which of the two flawed finalists will cause the least long-term harm to their Grand Old Party. The conventional wisdom has been that Donald Trump is the bigger menace than Ted Cruz. Certainly, several swing-state Republican senators up for re-election in November worry about The Donald at the top of the GOP ticket...

This is likely to have a negative impact on sales and the stock price. I think Target's (NYSE:TGT) bathroom policy is a serious mistake from a business standpoint. The policy is scaring away customers, which is likely to lead to sales declines and a falling stock price. Target recently went public with its bathroom policy which states:

And of course they will try to persuade investors that the calculations they prefer, in which certain costs are excluded, best represent the reality in their operations. Call it accentuating the positive, accounting-style. What’s surprising, though, is how willing regulators have been to allow the proliferation of phony-baloney financial reports and how keenly investors have embraced them. As a result, major public companies reporting results that are not based on generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, has grown from a modest problem into a...

The 11-year-old boy from Talladega, Ala., told NBC affiliate WVTM-TV that he was scared, so he grabbed a knife and steadied himself. Chris said that a man appeared on the stairwell, but when confronted, he ran back up upstairs. When the man reappeared moments later, the boy told WVTM-TV, the individual was holding a gun. “When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” Chris said. Instead of running, Chris...

    (Rome) The new Archbishop of Palermo, recently appointed by Pope Francis, Msgr. Corrado Lorefice, swung himself in a bicycle and drove through the presbyterium of his Cathedral. "Sometimes I ask myself whether certain prelates do not invent these surprises from a mere desire to see if they come into the media and land especially on certain blogs, for example, ours ..." according to the traditional website Messa in Latino. News and pictures were published by the official website of the Archdiocese of Palermo with the following text: "Palermo. Primatiale Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption, Wednesday, April 27, 2016: Feast of...

  • Professor Frenkel: Why Shouldn't We Drop Algebra From Our Education System?

    Science 2.0 ^ | 4/26/2016 | Alex Alaniz
    Mathematician Edward Frenkel was promoting his New York Times bestseller “Love and Math.” Social scientist Andrew Hacker, on the other hand, caught my attention immediately after the New York Times published his article arguing for the elimination of algebra from our education system. We don’t need it anymore, he claimed,. It does us far more bad than good. Hacker is a hit now. His anti-math book, “The Math Myth: And Other STEM Delusions” is holding its own against “Love and Math,” despite Frenkel’s book being translated into more than a dozen languages and Frenkel’s indefatigable popularization of the power, passion,...

    A Really Neat Antique Shop | 05/01/16 | Celtic Conservative
    Okay folks on the left coast, help me out. Whilst rummaging through a antique shop I found a really neat photo. It is a photo of a combination drive through florist shop and restaurant in Los Angeles. Based on the cars in the shot, It could be from anywhere from 1948 to 1952 (sorry, I don't have the ability to post pictures). The sign on the business says "McEldowneys". From my research it was owned By JK McEldowney, a LA businessman who went on to make the classic 1951 film "The River". He died in 2004 at the age of...

  • NASA Research Provides New Details On Mystery of How the Moon Got ‘Inked’

    Lunar swirls can be tens of miles across and appear in groups or just as an isolated feature. Previous observations yielded two significant clues about their formation: First, they appear where ancient bits of magnetic field are embedded in the lunar crust (although not every “fossil” magnetic field on the moon has a lunar swirl). Second, the bright areas in the swirls appear to be less weathered than their surroundings. The space environment is harsh; many things can cause material exposed to space to change chemically and darken over time, including impacts from microscopic meteorites and the effects of the...

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...

    Earlier this evening I got a call from my son, I could hear voices in the background so I just thought he had butt dialed me. I called back, planning to ask my son what his butt wanted. No answer. Strange. A few minutes later he called again. He couldn’t hear me, but I could hear him. He said “I’m not sure if you can hear me, but I’m at Kennestone Hospital ER”. He repeated that several times and eventually the call ended. I called the ER and eventually found out he was in a car accident, but he was...

    Woo hoo!! Please keep those donations coming in, folks. We need your continuing support to keep FR going strong. Like our nation, our forum has never been more divided. But have faith, my FRiends. We will unite behind our candidate emerging from this nasty primary fight and we will march on to defeat the godless American-hating Marxist Democrats in November. Not doing so would mean surrendering our freedom forevermore to the forces of evil. This will not happen on our watch!! Less than one year left until our current long national nightmare is over!!
