  • Putin’s Action Hero: How Steven Seagal Became the Kremlin’s Unlikeliest Envoy

    BuzzFeed News ^ | April 20, 2015 | Max Seddon, world correspondent and Rosie Gray, reporter
    The Russian president stunned Barack Obama when he proposed Steven Seagal as an intermediary between Washington and Moscow. Max Seddon and Rosie Gray tell the extraordinary story of the faded action star’s dalliances with the Kremlin. Vladimir Putin knew his relationship with the United States was nearing breaking point when he met Barack Obama in Lough Erne, a picturesque lakeside golf resort in Northern Ireland, on the sidelines of the G-8 summit in June 2013. The Russian and U.S. presidents had never gotten along. Putin spent their first meeting on the porch of his residence in Novo-Ogarevo, outside Moscow, in...

    The son of Democratic mega-donor George Soros is gearing up to play a more active role in the 2016 election with the launch of new political action committee focused on representing the views of Jewish Americans — beyond foreign policy. Alex Soros, 29, who has steadily increased his political and philanthropic giving in recent years, has helped establish Bend the Arc PAC, the first ever national Jewish political action committee in America focused entirely on domestic issues. Bend the Arc, a non-profit, has an advocacy arm chaired by the younger Soros but has not previously had a political action committee....

    I am certain that most of my readers have heard the Joseph Stalin quote "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic." Only a totally heartless human being could have such an outlook. One such a man is Barrack Hussein Obama, and he is proving it every single day. Several years ago when fifty one percent of this nation were singing Obama's praises, a large portion of the remaining forty nine percent were saying that Obama was incompetent. I have never believed that; writing instead that his apparent incompetence was actually a carefully...

    It is hardly a new concept. The very same Democrat Party used these tactics over 50 years ago in my home state of Mississippi. The primary enforcers of Party doctrine in those days was the Ku Klux Klan. The victims were Black Americans who wanted nothing more than to exercise their First Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process and vote. In turn, they were subjected to harassment, intimidation, and much, much worse. It didn’t end with a kumbaya moment of clarity on the part of the Democrats-In-Charge. No, it ended with the exposure of the criminal activity,...

    Sen. Bob Corker has authored a bill to hand President Obama the Imperium Magnum—in Rome it was called “dictator”—in regards to his caplituating “deal” with Iran.  In doing so, he has not only trashed the Constitution, but also the Senate’s own rules, bestowing an authority never intended for the chief executive to possess. The Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has authority, by Senate Rule XXX, to act upon treaties, but Corker, along with Sen. Robert Menendez and 91%-certain-to-be-running-for-president Sen. Lindsey Graham, have come up with a scheme to make it appear as if the Senate opposed Obama’s nuclear dalliance with Iran’s regime,...

"I don’t think I would have changed anything," he said in response to a questioner during a "Politics and Eggs" breakfast here Friday.

    The video of South Carolina police officer Michael Slager taking steady aim and repeatedly shooting the fleeing Walter Scott in the back is rather shocking and disturbing. It shows the horrible consequence of Slager completely following through on his decision to resort to deadly force when, after a foot chase and fierce physical fight, Scott looked to be turning the officer’s own taser against him. Some who have analyzed the incident and video closely know that the details are somewhat different than the authorities and media would have people know. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2015/04/12/game-changer-or-paradigm-shift-walter-scott-shooting-enhanced-video-shows-officer-slager-with-taser-darts/comment-page-1/ The moment of decision looks to have happened so...

As the email read: The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only to safeguard your right to target practice. It is a Constitutional right to protect your children, your family, your home, our lives, and to serve as the ultimate check against governmental tyranny — for the protection of liberty Cruz’s assertion was so absurd...

As Sahil Kapur at TPM notes, most Republican candidates run on pro-gun stances, but they usually steer clear of suggesting that people should use their guns to revolt against government. This makes sense when you think about it, given that candidates are asking people to vote them into government. "The 2nd Amendment...

    n addition to desertion, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl faces an unusual charge: misbehavior before the enemy. Of the two, it is the far more serious charge, carrying with it a maximum punishment of life behind bars, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction in rank, and the loss of the tens of thousands of dollars of pay and benefits Bergdahl earned after joining the military over six years ago. The misbehavior charge is so rare that there aren’t many examples of how the military justice system has handled it in the past. The Army said that it had such a case in...

But 60-odd years later, we have radioactive waste; terrifying antibiotic resistant pathogens; and despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars on cancer research and mapping the human genome, are no closer to that elusive cure. As to DNA, its greatest contribution has been to forensic science, which...

    Nearly all politicians who support longstanding hardline U.S. policy toward Cuba tend to be Cuban-American, Republican or both. With one big exception: Weston U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who happens to be the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. On Wednesday, after President Obama announced an historic deal to thaw the Cold War-era hostilities with Cuba, Wasserman Schultz was eerily quiet. Then, when Wasserman Schultz spoke, she was clearly out of step with the DNC. Consider the statements each issued and their timing: At 7:14 p.m., Wasserman Schultz's congressonal office released the most-tepid of statements that stopped well short of...

Firstly, the declared objective of the EU’s Ukraine policy is to have it firmly integrated in a Greater Europe, represented by the EU. Thus, it would influence Russia’s development in the right direction. We have no problem with that, all the more so that Ukraine’s transformation is long overdue and in everybody’s interest. But why acting secretly and unilaterally, rather than openly and multilaterally? We had always been told...

    The April 7th, 2015 power outage in Washington DC is curious to say the least. Virtually instantaneously, the government declare it was not a terrorist attack. After all, how could that possibly be when the NSA guards the country. If there was an attack on the power-grid, then the NSA would have to answer for their failure. So clearly, if it was an attack, they would never admit it. Instead, this has been attributed to a piece of metal breaking loose from a power line 43 miles southeast of the District of Columbia, which knocked out electricity to the White...

Just as they had two years earlier, military personnel had come to the Twin Cities to conduct counter-terrorism training operations in an urban environment. And just as before, those operations commenced with little advance notice to the public.

    President Clinton plans to stay out of the limelight if Hillary Clinton launches her expected run for president, he tells Town and Country Magazine in a new interview. “My role should primarily be as a backstage adviser to her until we get much, much closer to the election,” Clinton said. The interview provides a rare inside look at the couple’s mindset ahead of the impending presidential announcement. Clinton is widely expected to launch a bid within the next two weeks, as she’s reportedly already signed a lease for her campaign office in Brooklyn. That move forces her to officially declare...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Wikipedia’s “Barack Obama” article violates Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy states:“All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV), which means representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without bias, all of the significant views that have been published by reliable sources on a topic.” Wikipedia’s “Barack Obama” article includes a section called “Cultural and political image.” According to Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy, this section should contain both positive and negative things. However, almost everything in the section is positive....

    The “Herman Caining” of conservative presidential candidate Ted Cruz has begun. And first out of the attack gates are half-truths and no truth about his wife and her professional career. Tuesday, March 24, during an on-air interview on “The Manning Report,” the host, my good friend Dr. James David Manning, quizzed me pursuant to a Ted Cruz candidacy. My response was that we could expect in the very near future negative stories to start surfacing about not just Ted Cruz, but also his wife. I could not have been more prescient. The attack centers on Mrs. Cruz’s involvement in the...

    Barack Obama will not bomb and destroy the nation of Israel, but he is definitely willing to hold the coats for those who do. There can be no doubt as to Obama’s feelings for Israel, having spent a good portion of his early life associating with various organizations and people associated with the desire to see Israel destroyed forever. He was close friends with Rashid Khalidi, the former US spokesman for the PLO. He also knew Edward Said and Ali Abunimah. He once apologized to Abunimah for not being more active in his defense of the Palestinians over Israel. Over...

    In cases of international intrigues and current controversies having to do with how fictional movies can effect real-life people and events around the globe, I have yet to watch The Interview, last year’s comedy about North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, which provoked terror threats against theaters and sensational accusations concerning the hacking of Sony. However, yesterday I had the occasion to catch the award-winning black comedy from Argentina, Wild Tales, a darkly funny and shocking cinematic masterpiece containing six short-film vignettes, all having the common theme of ordinary human characters losing their minds and acting out unexpected, violent revenge upon...
  • White privilege was invented to discourage blacks kids from trying to succeed

    American Thinker Blog ^ | March 18, 2015 | Patricia L. Dickson
    After reading yesterday’s AT article "Teaching Racial Hatred" by David Deming, professor of arts and sciences at the University of Oklahoma, I realized something that had not occurred to me earlier about the goal of teaching college kids about white privilege. Many people believe that white privilege is a tool that is used to make white Americans feel guilty about their success by claiming that the mere fact that they were born with white skin gave them an upper hand in life (especially white heterosexual males). Once made to feel guilty, the white individuals soon begin to hate themselves for...
  • Washington Post columnist claims opposition to Obama is 'insurrection'

    The Houston Examiner ^ | April 4, 2015 | Mark Whittington
    Colbert King published an odd piece in the Washington Post on Friday that was equal parts hysteria, constitutional ignorance, and alternate history. He suggests that resistance to some of President Barack Obama’s executive orders amounts to nothing more than “insurrection.” Indeed, he compares this resistance to the actions of white southerners to President Abraham Lincoln. The assessment is bone chilling since the proper response to insurrection is to send in troops and start shooting people, just as Lincoln did when the Southern states tried to secede and form their own country. King focuses on legislation being passed by the Arizona...

    Be careful what you wish for. So goes one of the older bits of human wisdom. Question. If the O’Connor family of Walkerton, Indiana has been forced to close their family pizza business “Memories”, as noted here at TMZ, because their young daughter said in response to an unsolicited media question that the business wouldn’t cater a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs? And the business has never, in fact, catered any wedding? Then why shouldn’t this standard of questioning religious beliefs be applied to rich and famous liberal television anchors? Witch hunts never end well. And the current...

    Most Americans don’t realize we have elected a president whom we know very little about. Researchers have discovered that Obama’s autobiographical books are little more than PR stunts, as they have little to do with the actual events of his life. The fact is we know less about President Obama than perhaps any other president in American history and much of this is due to actual efforts to hide his record. This should concern all Americans. A nation-wide network of researchers has sprung up to attempt to fill in the blanks, but at every opportunity Obama’s high-priced lawyers have built...

    Police in Pasadena, Calif., arrested a Black Lives Matter protester on two outstanding warrants for terrorist threats, assault, trespassing, and petty theft among other alleged crimes. The Pasadena Star-News reports that Jasmine Richards’ arrest emerged out of a protest that took place last week. Richards’ arrest appears to have occurred shortly before a meeting of the Pasadena City Council. The Black Lives Matter chapters in Los Angeles and Pasadena issued a statement claiming the police misused their authority in arresting the 28-year-old protester, who became a member of the organization after visiting Ferguson, Mo., in August 2014. “Since her return...

    On this day, 1 April 2015, the People's Cube is celebrating ten glorious years of unstoppable revolutions. Jubilant masses of correctly educated workers, peasants, and unwashed toiling intelligentsia are coming together in towns and villages around the world, carrying People's Cube posters, peacefully hurling red cubes at the capitalist classes, and spontaneously chanting Party-approved slogans: People's CubeLong live the Glorious World of Next Tuesday! Hurrah! Cheers for our beloved comrade Red Square, People's Director! We need more visual agitation and propaganda to tell us what to think! There is no truth but the Current Truth We demand equality of results!...
