  • Layoffs at Twitter will be the first big act of Jack Dorsey's return as CEO

    Mashable ^ | October 9, 2015 | Seth Fiegerman
    Jack is back and he's bringing company-wide layoffs with him. Twitter is said to be planning to announce layoffs across most departments of the company next week, according a report late Friday from Re/code. The precise number or percentage of staff affected is unclear. "We’re not commenting on rumor and speculation,” a spokesperson for Twitter told Mashable. Speculation about the move comes just days after Twitter announced that cofounder Jack Dorsey would take over as the permanent CEO, following a lengthy search. While the layoffs will almost certainly hit company morale, it should appease investors eager to see Twitter rein...

    The Bakersfield Californian in Kevin McCarthy’s home District observed in a complimentary article certain key issues to bring “renewed luster for the Golden State.” Directly quoted, these are: Water: Improved prospects for legislation that sends more water to farmers and studies new storage sites. Environment: Diminished environmental regulations, increased oil and gas drilling and streamlined timber harvesting. Business: Silicon Valley and California’s commercial space industry have both received his attention in the past. These are certainly issues of state and national importance. Each is highly focused on their effects on the oil and agriculture economy of the San Joaquin...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 11 Oct 2015 | John Semmens
    Administration insiders are hinting that President Obama has become impatient with Congressional inaction on gun control legislation in the wake of a rash of mass murder shootings and will bypass that body and enact new controls based on his own authority. The gist of his decree is said to require dealers who sell more than 50 guns a year to obtain a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and do extensive background checks on persons who want to purchase weapons from them. Though he declined to specifically acknowledge the rumor, Press Secretary Josh Earnest attempted to...

    Barack Obama has trampled the Constitution both literally and figuratively. He is the closest thing to a dictator of the United States we've seen in a very long time. President McStompyfeet has a hissy fit every time Congress doesn't obey him exactly as he demands and he then sets off on an uncharted course, bending every conceivable law to its limit to satiate his wants. Congress isn't jumping to act immediately following the Oregon shooting of nine white people by a black man and so it's Executive Action for our Chavez/Maduro wannabe. In response to the latest mass shooting during...

    Stirring myself to the right words after One of Those Tragedies always takes a while. First, there’s the dragged-down feeling of “here we go again.” The antis rush gleefully on stage to perform their blood dances and once again, decent people need to respond to them, if for no other reason than to keep the record straight. We can’t even stop to speak with decency and sympathy for the horrible losses because to speak at all is to become political. And that’s obscene. Mass murders, whether by bomb or knife or vehicle or poison, are horrific individual tragedies. But mass...

    Coach is Right ^ | October 10, 2015 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    House and Senate intelligence committees are investigating whether the intelligence community was unaware of Russia’s rapid buildup and dramatic military offensive in Syria. In layman’s terms, congressional Republicans learned of the Russian advance from CNN before they were presented any solid information by the intelligence community. It’s likely the intelligence was buried by Obama loyalists in an effort to prevent bad information from reaching the President. Another possibility, Executive Intelligence Summary briefings may have been sanitized before any of the content reached congress. Since the Obama Administration is the least transparent in American history, such conspiracy notions hardly represent a...

    The warnings are getting louder. Is anybody listening? For months, I have been documenting on my website how the global financial system is absolutely primed for a crisis, and now some of the most important financial institutions in the entire world are warning about the exact same thing. For example, this week I was stunned to see that the Telegraph had published an article with the following ominous headline: “$3 trillion corporate credit crunch looms as debtors face day of reckoning, says IMF“. And actually what we are heading for would more accurately be described as a “credit freeze” or...

    A retired military colonel, now a Fox News analyst, has dropped a bombshell in the case of Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant held for five years by the Taliban who is charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy. Retired Col. David Hunt says Bergdahl actually joined the Taliban, and recordings prove it. Further, he notes the U.S. government has failed to make use of that evidence in the case against Bergdahl, who was returned to the U.S. in a stunning trade for five top terrorists held at Guantanamo. Appearing on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show, Hunt said the...

Diller is entirely unconvinced that Trump, whom he calls a mean, “self-promoting huckster,” will ever make to the White House. The Donald, Barry said, has nothing to offer the voters and no communication strategy, he told Bloomberg. All he has proven to the country is that he’s a “nasty, mean person” who struck a note with similarly-minded people and whose only talent is making noise to make a buck. “I don’t think it’s got anything to do...

Vladimir Putin’s Russia is the most dangerous threat to America. And not only to America: Russia’s attempts to reclaim its empire spread conflict and misery, prolong war, destabilize the postwar alliance system that has brought security and prosperity to the world, and erode Western values such as freedom, equality, and individualism. Though Russia may no longer espouse global communist revolution, the consequences of its militarism and aggression...

If gun owners keep their heads in the sand and continue to have loaded or easily loaded firearms in their residences, where kids or kids taking any medication coexist then the 2nd is gone within twenty years. The founders could have never envisioned that there could be a distinction between gun ownership and responsible gun ownership. Yet today distinction...

Actual emissions are “40 times higher” we’re told. And people are dying. “Quatsch!” as they say in German. Nonsense! It’s just another car mass hysteria, like “runaway” Toyotas a few years ago and runaway Audis before that.

Trump on the presidential campaign trail as a way to lead cheers for the United States national team.(VIDEO-AND-TWEET-AT-LINK)The video was promoted as a response to an earlier TV Azteca ad that used Trump’s words as a way to promote Mexico in the game.

    When Mark Meadows introduced the resolution to depose John Boehner in July, the political world scoffed at him, noting that Boehner would inevitably fight-off any attempt to unseat him. This was an “ill-conceived” effort. When Boehner’s inevitability turned into his demise a few weeks ago, we were told that Kevin McCarthy – the next political hack in line – would inevitably be the next Speaker. All resistance is futile. Even as recently as yesterday in Politico, establishment GOP members were taking shots at conservatives, acting as if they still held all the cards. Rep.

    From hand-held blasters to planet-destroying death rays, laser weapons are a fanciful staple of science fiction. But at their core, lasers are just concentrated beams of light that generate heat. As simple as that sounds, they've proven remarkably difficult to weaponize. Until now. Quietly and without great fanfare the laser weapon has arrived, and warfare will never be the same. This week Lockheed Martin, the defense contractor behind the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, announced it was exploring ways to put a laser on the controversial fighter. The U.S. Navy has already fielded a laser weapon on the USS Ponce. And...

While not denying that these Christians are likely to face great peril, US Secretary of State John Kerry justified the policy, calling it "consistent with the President's vision for the region.

Another $572 million owed by Detroit Public Schools to a state “authority” within the Michigan Department of Treasury has received less coverage. But some eyebrows were raised recently when DPS went back for another loan from that source on the same day it made payment on an earlier loan.

Some of the Fox News bias really came to light with the ascendance of Donald Trump. Trump is certainly no conservative, but he speaks out against the politically...

    The debt ceiling issue is returning to the forefront in American politics, again threatening a government shutdown. Last time, the shutdown resulting in sequester for many agencies that suspended work for many government employees; a great deal of political theater dominated the news cycle; but ultimately, things returned to a basic normalcy. This time may be different, as a number of critical factors face Americans in 2015. Last week, Congress passed “procedural martial law” to address stop-gap spending as it faces the debt ceiling crisis again. Meanwhile, this quietly announced martial law forced a vote on bills the same day,...

    In case you hadn't noticed, the first debate among the Democrat candidates for president is next week. It seems that more people are excited about the WNBA finals (quick..can you name one of the two teams? quicker..can you name the other Dem candidates besides Clinton and Sanders? See!!) than the Democrats. There has been much talk in Dem circles about the need for many more debates: I'm predicting now that after the first one is over, people will be begging the DNC to cancel the rest of them. Nevertheless, there are some interesting questions...

    Violence on the horizon? Rioting at this weekend’s Washington, D.C. gripe-fest celebrating the 20th anniversary of the endlessly hyped, misnamed Million Man March, seems like a definite possibility. Just this week 12 people were arrested in Hartford, Conn., for disorderly conduct after blocking traffic and access to the University of Hartford as they chanted “Black Lives Matter!” After demonstrators refused to stop sitting and standing in the road, they were arrested. While protest-related arrests aren’t necessarily cause for much concern, they are just the tip of the iceberg. As Breitbart News reports Like many Democrat-run cities across the country, Hartford...

    Can Kate's Law succeed in Congress? The American left’s contemptuous disregard for laws it doesn’t like is metastasizing. Despite the public outrage that attended the murder of Kate Steinle by Juan Francsico Lopez-Sanchez, a seven-time convicted felon who had been deported five times, the number of illegal alien protection centers known as sanctuary cities has increased. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reports the number of these law-obstructing entities has grown to 340, compared to only 276 identified as recently as last July. CIS’s analysis is based on new information released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that covers the...

    Marxists are masters of Machiavellian manipulation. The curtain should be brought down because this is a show that stinks to High Heaven Intriguing that Pope Francis would warn bishops and cardinals attending the synod to beware of getting caught up in conspiracy theories, as conservatives and liberals reportedly engage in Machiavellian attempts to manipulate the synod. “Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi on Thursday confirmed reports that the pontiff had warned Catholic bishops and cardinals behind closed doors on Tuesday not to get caught up in “the hermeneutic of conspiracy”.

    As if on cue the Salem Media machine starts singing the praises of Representative Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House. ~ GOOD TIME TO REMEMBER THIS ~ Hugh Hewitt ‎@hughhewitt If two weeks of upheaval brought us @RepPaulRyan as Speaker, well worth it. Forgotten in days, he'd lead for decade or more. On his terms. 9:14 PM - 8 Oct 2015 No-one needed any further evidence of how insufferably corrupt the progressive republican party has become; however, today is a brutal reminder of just how much the GOPe absolutely despise the base of their own party.

    BRITISH Special Forces have used a “mannequin army” of shop dummies to lure dozens of Islamic State (ISIS) fighters into an ambush in eastern Syria, military sources have revealed. The operation targeted an ISIS unit that had been making repeated strikes on Kurdish Peshmerga forces. The top-secret mission took place two weeks ago near the town of Bussayrah, close to the Euphrates River, and involved a joint force of UK and American troops. At least a dozen shop mannequins were dressed in Kurdish combat uniforms before being flown in by members of the SAS. Some were posed holding weapons, as...
