    Social justice warrior says we should abandon science because it’s “racist.” Then the hypocrite uses her smartphone! This video, which is from the University of Cape Town in South Africa, has been showing up on a lot of different YouTube channels, along with the new phrase “decolonize science” and the twitter hashtag #sciencemustfall.The woman says that science is “racist” and we should abandon it, because it does not treat African witchcraft and black magic the same way that it treats Newtonian physics.But she’s wrong on that – for two reasons.First of all, science is not “racist.” Science treats all races the...

    Advisor Perspectives ^ | June 20, 2016 | Robert Huebscher
    Not only will Donald Trump win the November election, but his victory will propel U.S. economic growth higher, according to Jeffrey Gundlach. Trump will fuel a debt-driven increase in government spending, which Gundlach said will push GDP growth to levels reminiscent of the Ronald Reagan era. Gundlach did not endorse Trump or say whether he would vote for him. Gundlach spoke to investors on June 14 to provide updates on the DoubleLine Total Return Fund (DBLTX). He is the founder and chief investment officer of Los Angeles-based DoubleLine Capital, known for its fixed-income mutual funds, closed-end funds and ETFs. Copies...

For Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, they claim that firearms "cannot be used as a wildlife protection strategy". From Federal law also prohibits firearms in certain facilities in this park (such as visitor centers, government offices, etc.); those places are marked with signs at all public entrances. Firearms may not be discharged in this national park (except during legal hunting seasons) and can not be used as...
  • Irans Crude Exports To Drop To Four-Month Lows In November

    10/27/2016 11:22:15 AM PDT · by bananaman22 · 2 replies ^ | 27-10-2016 | The Ayatollah and his mom
    A typically low seasonal demand in Europe will lead to Iran exporting 1.89 million bpd of crude oil next month, the lowest level since July, Reuters reported on Thursday, citing a source with knowledge of Irans tanker schedule. As a rule of thumb, Iranian crude oil exports usually hit low levels around the months of October and November due to the peak in refinery maintenance in Europe and Asia. This year around, however, the November exports to Asia will rise from October due to higher Chinese demand. This year, Iran has been rapidly bumping up oil production and exports after...

    Ignore the polls We keep telling you: Ignore the polls. As we get closer to election day, it appears that theyre tightening, but many of them still show a looming blowout in favor of Hillary Clinton. For Trump supporters, especially a reluctant one, that could engender the notion that theres no point in voting. After all, if Trumps going to lose bigly, why bother heading to the polls? ...And, per Rand Paul, thats precisely what some of the polls are designed to do.

Hes been working hard to make that happen and he might be right but, as he admits, theres a solid chance that hes wrong, too. However, hes devoting his time not to stopping Hillary, but instead to preparing for a post-Trump GOP. Should Trump go down in flames, how will the party deal with the populist leanings of its...

    Hillary Clinton is both the epitome and the most perfect example of all that is wrong with America today According to the CDC and other reliable sources the daily abortion rate in the U.S. is between 3,562 and 3,700. Taking the lower figure and multiplying that by the number of days in a possible Hillary Clinton presidency provides one stunning and gruesome fact. What that means is that 5,200,520 healthy unborn babies will be sucked out, ripped out or torn out of women and discarded (If not sold to body parts harvesters) like so much bleeding flesh at a meat...

Secretary of Defence Ash Carter confirmed Obamas decision on 17 October. The timing of the attack is very concerning.

Here, the fish covers up her breasts instead of the traditional bikini top. Did you see the fishbra photo where the fish was big enough to provide "protection" for two anglers? Now, that is a catch worth capturing. See the video here.

Three months later, as of 1 July, 2016, the number of active permits was at 305,463. 92.5% of all applications received in the first six months...

    Anyone with any political knowledge is aware the best chances for Hillary Clinton in Florida come from two specific counties, Broward and Dade. It is not coincidental that both counties continue to be the historic nucleus of multiple voting irregularities. This year is no different. In a recent series of events Broward County is at the epicenter of another voting malfunction. However, this one might not be a mistake, it might be by design. The essential outline of the current year concern surrounds a scheme to present double voting to benefit Hillary Clinton: Broward County officials intentionally screw up sending...

    Trump spoke beautiful poetry today at his short speech before the ribbon-cutting at the new Trump hotel in Washington DC -- the Old Post Office. His tone was very subdued. He used a metaphor comparing the American people's potential to the old Post Office that was neglected and not taken care of for decades -- beautiful. Gee, if Trump keeps giving speeches like this, he can't help but win. So he's mixing it up -- he roughs up Hillary at the rallies, but he also elevates the discussion by explaining the dream of what American can truly be if each...

The left has more bodies that still move and that's it. I think he's right. The left could put up a cardboard cut-out and that would get 55% of the vote. There is no longer any competition between candidates, a battle of the better ideas, it's simply a numbers game now that the right has...

    While the world was watching America's gay rights transformation, the Obama administration was pursuing a quieter mission to try to export the same freedoms overseas to places like sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and eastern Europe. The U.S. has deployed its diplomats and spent tens of millions of dollars to try to block anti-gay laws, punish countries that enacted them, and tie financial assistance to respect for LGBT rights. It was a mission animated in part by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's declaration that "gay rights are human rights." Yet the U.S. encountered occasional backlash, including from some rights groups...

What data do we have to help us prognosticate? My thoughts were the 2014 mid-terms, the primaries and the Brexit vote. The 2014 midterms were a blowout for the Republicans. Granted, the turnout was low, but the Republicans still won and the anti-Obama vote was evident: In our survey last month, 32% of registered voters said they thought of their vote for Congress as a vote...

    One strange US election fact is becoming clear: Donald Trump has become the favoured presidential candidate of some American Hindus. How and why are more complex questions. In June, I wrote about a small gathering of the Hindu Sena (Hindu Army) in Delhi performing a havan puja (religious offering) to Donald Trump. The erstwhile relatively unknown group attracted widespread media attention with its highly vocalised support of the Republican presidential candidate, in particular emphasising Trumps views on combating Islamic terrorism. While the Hindu Sena remains a fringe phenomenon within India, I pointed then to the growing influence of Hindus for...

    Earlier this morning, we ran a feature encouraging Democrats not to count their presidential chickens before they hatchdrawing on recent history, including Brexit and this years Republican primaryand it appears our timing couldnt have been better. (Or worse, depending on how you look at it.) Recent polls from swing states are somehow indicating that Donald J. Trump, candidate for president, is making a comeback. Heres a snapshot of what might be a legitimate comeback, with a nod to Real Clear Politics and their thorough poll aggregation: Florida A Bloomberg poll released today has Trump leading by two points. Nevada A...

    Glorious news, comrades! In response to the critique that her campaign consists mainly of throwing dirt at Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton has now announced her first - and most important - executive plan: an ambitious roadmap to rebuild America's military: the Military Equality Program. Speaking to a large crowd of 11 supporters and 134 journalists in Washington, Mrs. Clinton delivered a rousing speech: "People no longer respect our military, because it is a source of inequality. Remember the first phase of Iraq II? We rolled them up like a carpet, you could hardly call it a war. Our soldiers were...
  • Bloomberg Florida poll and Remington Research polls show just how close this race is

    Bloomberg Florida poll and Remington Research polls show just how close this race is Trump only needs a small shift. Endless media narrative that race is over is just wrong. The daily drumbeat of corporate media telling us that this race is over had an impact last week. Trump started to dip in the polls as we saw him drop behind in the IBD and LA Times/Daybreak polls. Those have been his stalwart polls, showing him leading when the others would not. But that has reversed and Trump is back on top in the LA Times/Daybreak and holding steady in...
  • (Vanity) When it comes to the polls, follow the money

    10/26/2016 10:36:06 AM PDT · by JennysCool · 10 replies
    Excuse the vanity, but it's important to remember in this craziness over the polls, that the mainstream media is a profit-making enterprise which we have somehow allowed to run our elections. Elections are the media's cash cows, their Christmases, their Black Fridays. Candidates pour advertising dollars into their depleted accounts, and most of that money must by law be paid upfront. Nice gig, huh? So when you see media-generated or media- subscribed polls, please remember it's in the media's best financial interest to keep the race "close," by having candidates trade leads, rise and fall, gain and lose support. It...

    I'm writing this while sitting on a cruise ship thats docked in Mallorca, Spain. I'm heading to France and have just spent 4 days in Italy. I've only had a cursory look at the news from home, and what I've caught has been depressing, like this entire election cycle. One of the most interesting things about this trip thus far - other than the obvious visits to Pompeii, the Coliseum and St. Peter's - has been observing how things work - or don't - and talking with people who live in Italy. The first thing you discover in Naples is...

    Of course. As soon as James OKeefe released the video and Rob and I discussed putting something together about it, we figured this was going to happen. A man closely associated with the Clinton campaign and the DNC - not knowing hes being recorded, of course - admits that Hillary is illegally giving orders for idiotic hijinks to go on at Donald Trump rallies. The point is not how stupid the whole Donald Duck thing is (and its very stupid indeed). The point is that a candidate cannot be giving orders to a Super PAC to do things. Thats a...
