    "(A natural EMP event) today would cause a massive disruption to the electric grid, possibly shutting it down entirely for months or longer, with unimaginable consequences," Singer wrote. "Only two years ago, the sun let loose with a Carrington-magnitude burst, but the position of the earth at the time prevented the burst from hitting it. The chances of additional events of such magnitude may be far greater than most people think." Carrington refers to a solar storm in 1859 that caused telegraph systems to fail around the world. Singer warned that a man-made EMP attack would be even worse.

Conspiracy theorists hailed the clip as proof of time travel, citing it alongside other instances of old films that appear to show imagery of modern technology existing years before it was invented.

This theory was described in a widely read account in the New Republic on Sunday by Russian-American Jessica Ioffe, which argued that Russian civilians were being fed a uniformly skewed interpretation of the events that brought...

    Congress should get the major accounting firms, consulting firms and law firms on board to investigate the administration on the VA, the IRS, Fast & Furious, the border crisis, Obamacare, the stonewalling, the lies, the coverups and even Benghazi. They have the manpower and the expertise to unearth the corruption, lies, deceit and the truth that the administration is hiding.........

    The number of babies born is exceeded by the number of deaths, and any growth last year in the EU was accounted for by migrants. In just 15 years, half of Europeans will be over the age of 65 years and the numbers under 45 will drop by a quarter. This means that countries will not be able to afford their health and pension systems unless there is an influx of new workers, according to the report published by the migration policy centre in the European University in Florence.

    Everyone knows there are gays and lesbians in everybodyís family. And no office would be complete without a sassy gay character. And just about every other kid in high school is wresting with his sexuality. I know. I watch TV. Except it isnít true, and the Centers for Disease Control just proved it. A new comprehensive study by the CDC with over 33,000 participants has confirmed earlier estimates; less than 3 percent of the U.S. population self-identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual. Earlier, much smaller-scale surveys have put that number at 4 percent. The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), published...

    I want to know why no one from CITIBANK is going to jail. The Federal Reserve bails out CITI, the tax payer pays the bill. The Dept.of Justice gets the.money. Now I know I am just S.Texas Tea Party Patriot, trying to stop the influx down here, but how come no white collars are going to prison? Us Americans are getting gangbanged by the government in every hole and wallet. Time to fly the flag upside down and get to work protecting our way of life. O one reason why the illegals are getting shipped all over America is because...

    (Excerpted) 1. Liberals just want to take away guns, just like Hitler: If I had five bucks for every time I’ve witnessed Godwin’s Law in action, I’d be sitting on the front porch of my vacation home in the Bahamas, looking at my 55′ sportfisher tied up to the dock. Almost every gun nut you deal with will inevitably mention Hitler, because gun nuts have been conditioned by the NRA to point to Nazi Germany as proof that the march to fascism and tyranny involves stricter regulation of guns. Except, there’s this one little fact: In 1938, under Nazi rule,...

    Okay, this is the day I do a favor for Universal Pixs. Here, free of charge, is a bold new concept for a cartoon action comedy. Not just a concept, mind you, but a high concept. That's what Hollywood loves. Okay here it is. You have this gang of no-goodniks who want to destroy the public schools in Typical Town, USA. Not just destroy the schools but get rich for doing it! Crime-wise, that's thinking big-big-big. In the opening scenes, we can clearly see that these are bad hombres with cold hearts. Their crooked grins suggest a lifetime of larceny...
