    TheBlaze ^ | January 20, 2011 | Jonathon M. Seidl
    Patrick Moore, co-founder of the environmental organization Greenpeace, isn’t too hot about global warming. Appearing on Fox Business Network with Stuart Varney on Thursday, he said global warming is a “natural phenomenon,” there’s no proof of man-made global warming, and suggested that “alarmism” is driving politicians to create bad environmental policies. He also said he’s not the only environmentalist that believes like him: Moore is the author of the book, “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist,” in which he exposes the green movement and explains why he left the organization.

    In the book Tears of a Clown: Glenn Beck and the Tea Bagging of America, Milbank says that line is a veiled reference to an obscure Mormon prophecy that Latter-day Saints will rescue the country from certain doom. It's known as the White Horse Prophecy.Barlow, the Utah State professor, agrees that Beck's use of "hanging by a thread" is likely not coincidental. But is he trying to deliver a secret coded message to his followers that an uprising is nigh? Barlow says Beck is making conservative arguments by "drawing on this element that runs through Mormon consciousness."

    Video: Muslim demonstrators shouted “Pope Benedict, you will pay, Islam is on its way”, “Sharia is on its way”, “Justice is on its way” (a lot is coming our way, it seems) and threatened that Sharia would be “declared” against all who insult Muhammad. They shouted to the Pope, “Watch your back,” swore that he will “burn in hell” and claimed that he “deserves the death penalty.”

    Rewind to exactly this time last year. A campaign consultant for one of the campaigns for Governor of South Carolina began approaching groups that were viewed as likely to be influenced by Governor Mark Sanford. Why? Because South Carolina politicos knew Rep. Nikki Haley was viewed as Sanford’s choice to replace him. This campaign consultant began informing groups that a blogger named Will Folks was peddling a story that he had a relationship with Rep. Haley. Multiple sources in South Carolina confirm that the political consultant in question denied his campaign would be responsible when the story came out, but...

    Well, it turns out that that very teacher that claimed to be unfairly compensated, and that she would love to make $83,000, actually gets a salary of $86,389. Plus healthcare. plus pension. In totality, it amounts to well over $100,000 per year.(Analysis from theblogprof)
  • Stimulus Surprise: Companies Retrench When Government Spends

    Harvard Business School ^ | May 24, 2010 | Sean Silverthorne
    Recent research at Harvard Business School began with the premise that as a state's congressional delegation grew in stature and power in Washington, D.C., local businesses would benefit from the increased federal spending sure to come their way. It turned out quite the opposite. In fact, professors Lauren Cohen, Joshua Coval, and Christopher Malloy discovered to their surprise that companies experienced lower sales and retrenched by cutting payroll, R&D, and other expenses. Indeed, in the years that followed a congressman's ascendancy to the chairmanship of a powerful committee, the average firm in his state cut back capital expenditures by roughly...
  • Former NOAA oil spill cleanup boss says Obama waited too long in Gulf disaster

    Gouget told the Registe that NOAA officials at the Unified Command Center in Louisiana know how to respond to spills, and know burning should have started as soon as possible after the initial release was detected. He also speculated that they may have been prevented from doing so by higher officials. "It may have been a political issue. The burn would make a big big plume and lots of soot. Like Valdez, the decisions to get the resources mobilized may not have occurred until it was too late," Gouget told the Register. "This whole thing has been a daily strip...
  • Here comes Smoot-Hawley II (ObamaCare) - Health care, Democrat's kamikaze mission

    Politico ^ | December 18, 2009 | Larmar Alexander
    But this wouldn’t be Congress’s first historic mistake. The Smoot-Hawley Tariff of 1930 to “buy American” sounded like a good way to protect jobs by keeping out cheaper foreign products. Historians agree it was a mistake, setting off waves of retaliatory tariffs and making the Great Depression worse.

    Hot Air ^ | 12/7/2009 | Allahpundit
    I’d call it a palate cleanser except that it’s too riveting and simply … too sad for that. Not only is this poor woman put through the wringer, it sounds like the guy breaking in was out of his gourd: They didn’t know each other, yet he was screaming threats and resorted to throwing patio furniture through the back door to get in. Reportedly, when the cops found his sister to let her know, she was so high she was nearly unconscious, so that’s the theory for his behavior at the moment. No word yet on what he was on.
  • Stephanopoulos: ClimateGate Complicates Copenhagen for Obama

    NewsBusters ^ | 11/29/2009 | Noel Sheppard
    the ClimateGate scandal as a topic for discussion during the Roundtable segment on Sunday's "This Week." As NewsBusters has been reporting since this story broke more than a week ago, television news outlets have been quite disinterested in the controversy now growing with each passing day. Breaking this trend, Stephanopoulos aggressively waded into this seemingly verboten subject by mentioning how it complicates President Obama's trip to "Copenhagen to deal with climate change." George Will of course agreed saying that the release of these e-mail messages raises a serious question about why America should "wager trillions of dollars and substantially curtail...
  • Palin in Wasilla: Mastery of governing detail, resistence to insider assimilation

    The North Star National ^ | 11/24/09 | Dan Calabrese
    You can’t help but notice that just about everyone who is part of the political establishment detests Sarah Palin. And you can’t help but notice that Palin couldn’t care less. Early in the second chapter of Going Rogue, a chapter titled “Kitchen-Table Politics,” you learn everything you need to know to understand why. This is the way Palin has been wired for a very long time. During her two terms on the Wasilla City Council, followed by two terms as the city’s mayor, she consistently demonstrated a refreshing immunity to the insider mentality that tends to afflict people who serve...

    The National Republican Congressional Committee remains committed to embattled GOP nominee Dede Scozzafava in the upstate New York House special election, even as many of the party's top names throw their support to Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman. Two party officials tell POLITICO that the NRCC will continue to air TV ads propping up Scozzafava in the days leading up to the Nov. 3 contest and plans to keep up a near relentless barrage of press releases slamming Hoffman.

    YouTube ^ | September 1, 2009 | DefendGlen
    Van Jones in February 2009, just before he was appointed the "Green Jobs" Czar gave this talk at Berkley. It is clear that he is selling the idea of hitching the destruction of Capitalism to taking a "Green" approach to the "System." Its a little under 5 minutes. Watch and understand why Glen has kept hammering on the question of why is this guy an adviser to the President? Amazing.

    Comedy Central ^ | 8/11/09 | Jon Stewart
    I have occasionally liked a clip, or something this guy has done, but aside from a few corkers, I laughed until I was nearly sick. Sometimes comedy is really capable of pointing out when people just aren't making sense.This episode features Stewart lampooning Obamacare, The Democrat leadership, the lame denials about rationing not happening, Racial politics, Hillary's fit in Africa that will make you choke with laughter, and an interview with one of Obama's economists who he asks, "Are we broke?" and proceeds to lay out the insanity of the path our country is taking.I just didn't expect it.

    Awesome video from inside of Representative Kathy Castor's Townhall. The video is professional quality and show sights and sounds and Democrat Operative trying desperately to stack the room and create a cheerleading session. Alas, it wasn't to be, the chants from outside, and the few brave citizens who were able to get inside still made their presence felt.

    US Representative Mike Castle heath care townhall gets out of control when crowd of 200 present get on to topic of Obama's birth certificate. After impassioned speech by a lady in the crowd, Castle pronounces Obama as a citizen which causes a roar of disapproval and the lady calls everyone to stand and say Pledge of Allegiance which was missed at the beginning of the meeting and everyone does, including a hapless Rep. Mike Castle.
