  • [Ben Sasse] My Statement on Wiretapping

    Twitter ^ | 1:20 PM 4 Mar 2017 | Ben Sasse
    The President today made some very serious allegations, and the informed citizens that a republic requires deserve more information. If there were wiretaps of then-candidate Trump's organization or campaign, then it was either with FISA court authorization or without such authorization. If without, the President [Sasse is talking about Trump here, not his snideness Obama] should explain what sort of wiretap it was and how the knows this. It is possible that he was illegally tapped. On the other hand, if it was with a legal FISA Court order, then an application for surveillance exists that the Court found credible....

    Msgr. Charles Pope 12/22/2015 Nativity animals Question: I was told that the animals in the Christmas Nativity scene have a symbolic meaning. Is this so, and if so what?— Jennifer Ladd, Buffalo, New York Answer: Yes, the traditional animals of the Nativity scene are chosen for a reason. The ox and the donkey are a reference to Isaiah 1:3 which says, “An ox knows its owner, and an ass, its master’s manger; But Israel does not know, my people has not understood.”So, it’s actually rather an unflattering self-accusation we make of our own human family that, in effect, declares the...
  • New Kasich Web Video: Donald Trump Is Pretty Much a Nazi, Right?

    National Review ^ | Jim Geraghty
    Yeesh. John Kasich's campaign takes its biggest shot at Donald Trump, featuring a former U.S. prisoner of war, Ret. Col. Thomas Moe, adapting a famous quote about the Nazis, and applying it to Trump. *snip* See what you've done, Governor Kasich? Now you've got me, Trump hater extraordinaire, forced to defend Trump from charges of crypto-Nazism. We still don't know whether Donald Trump really wants Muslims to register with the government. He's never directly proposed it. He's given a half-distracted, loosely-worded affirmative answer to a reporter when it was first brought up by the reporter. Every time he's asked since,...

    On March 24th the YouTube channel Model Pranksters elected to upload the following video to their channel, and it becomes a prank gone horribly wrong. They apparently thought it would be a wise idea to travel to Kentucky, dress up as the murderer from the Scream movies, hide in the darkness, pop out with what appears to be a rifle, and point it at innocent people. Watch what happens when he chooses the wrong guy to scare, and then nearly wets himself. I wish I could say I laughed at that video while watching it, but I didnt. Frankly I...

    MEMRI TV ^ | 3-6-15 | TRT Arabic (Turkey)
    During a recent TV debate on the destruction of antiquities by ISIS, Syrian political analyst Yahya Badr said that the Egyptian people was entitled to claim legal rights in Australia, since inscriptions in ancient hieroglyphics had been found near Sydney, indicating that the grandson of a pharoah had landed there. On the show, which aired on the Turkish TRT TV channel on March 6, 2015, Badr was introduced as owning the patent to mummy technology. Following are excerpts: TV host: Let's discuss the destruction of antiquities. Yahya Badr: This is a crime, because antiquities constitute documentation, which preserves the [legal]...
  • GOP Echo Chamber Fuels Anti-ObamaCare Rage, Shutdown

    IBD ^ | 10/2/2013 | Cass Sunstein
    Two factors best explain the U.S. government shutdown. The first involves information, or what people think they know. The second involves incentives, or what motivates our elected representatives. From decades of empirical research, we know that when like-minded people speak with one another, they tend to become more extreme, more confident and more unified the phenomenon known as group polarization. One reason involves the spread of information within echo chambers. If you're in a group whose members think the Affordable Care Act is horrible, you'll hear many arguments to that effect and very few the other way.

Its bizarre. But thats whats being sold out there.

    Reuters ^ | 6/25/12 | Keith Coffman
    A fast-growing wildfire in Colorado forced 11,000 people from their homes at least briefly on Sunday and threatened popular summer camping grounds beneath Pikes Peak, whose vistas helped inspire the patriotic tune "America the Beautiful." Live summit video from the 14,115-foot (4,302-metre) peak showed plumes of dark smoke billowing in the air, and a cog railway that ferries tourists up the side of the famous mountain was shut down because of the wildfires.

    Once again he breaks the boundaries of presidential decorum. This guy isn't the president of a college fraternity. He is one of only 44 people in the history of a nation of hundreds of millions who have had the honor and privalege to hold one of the greatest positions of power in the history of mankind.....and he's looking for an "ass to kick?" Yeah, Matt Lauer prodded him, but THATS MATT LAUER. He is the PRESIDENT. Shouldn't someone be the adult here? Whats worse is Lauer said "kick butt," Obama turned it into "ass." It was totally gratuitous for him...

    "Severe" may be an understatement. The prisons in Peru are known to be among the most brutal in the world. Here is one account of what happens to prisoners such as child molesters: A neighbor of Cieneguilla suffered the worst shock which could have happened. His daughter, only two years old, was raped by a drug addict and drunk who during a party at the neighbor's house went to her room and raped her. The unfortunate was saved from being lynched by the locals, but it was reported and he went to Lurigancho. The case, incredibly, didn't appeared in the...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | January 9, 2010 | Meg James and Matea Gold
    Jeff Zucker was a fearless news producer and fast-rising entertainment executive who was just 41 when he became head of NBC Universal. But in the last few years, the onetime whiz kid behind the "Today" show -- he turned Katie Couric into a star -- has made several costly miscalculations that have led to a spectacular fall by the country's premier television network. Zucker's troubles were magnified this week when, with NBC facing a revolt by affiliate stations furious over their sinking ratings, he decided to move Jay Leno back to late night after less than four months. The unusual...

    Well, I had written to Senator Martinez ("R"-Florida) about the citizenship issue before the election. Today I got this mind-boggling response: ======================== Thank you for contacting me regarding President-Elect Obama's citizenship. I appreciate hearing from you and would like to respond to your concerns. Like you, I believe that our federal government has the responsibility to make certain that the Constitution of the United States is not compromised. We must fight to uphold our Constitution through our courts and political processes. Article II of the Constitution provides that "no Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the...
