    The Business Standard ^ | July 27, 2015 | Press Trust of India
    A Chinese firm specialising in precision technology has set up the first unmanned factory at Dongguan city where all the processes are operated by robots, regarded as futuristic solution to tide over China's looming demographic crisis and dependence on manual workers. In the plant, all the processes are operated by computer- controlled robots, computer numerical control machining equipment, unmanned transport trucks and automated warehouse equipment. The technical staff just sits at the computer and monitors through a central control system. At the workshop of Changying Precision Technology Company in Dongguan, known as the "world factory", which manufactures cell phone modules,...

A firefighter in a ladder truck makes his way to him in with seconds to spare! The $50M building collapsed like a paper house, destroyed in just 20 minutes. Incredibly, no one was seriously hurt.
  • Why Muslim Rapists Prefer Blondes: A History

    Raymond Ibrahim ^ | 7/30/15 | Raymond Ibrahim
    The Muslim penchant to target “white” women for sexual exploitation—an epidemic currently plaguing Europe, especially Britain and Scandinavia—is as old as Islam itself, and even traces back to Muhammad.Much literary evidence attests to this in the context of Islam’s early predations on Byzantium (for centuries, Christendom’s easternmost bulwark against the jihad). According to Ahmad M. H. Shboul (author of “Byzantium and the Arabs: The Image of the Byzantines as Mirrored in Arabic Literature”) Christian Byzantium was the “classic example of the house of war,” or Dar al-Harb—that is, the quintessential realm that needs to be conquered by jihad. Moreover, Byzantium...

It may not be the safest way to make money, but that’s what three girls from Chechnya, a Russian republic in southeastern Europe, did.

Something is going to happen over the next number of years with this country because you can't keep on losing $200 billion (deficit at the time). And yet we let Japan come in and dump everything into our markets. It's not free trade. If you ever go to Japan right now and try to sell something, forget about it. Just forget about it.

    Newsday ^ | July 29th, 2015 | By HANNA KRUEGER, KATE HARDIMAN, CAROLINE KELLY
    2016 GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump has been hurling insult after insult on the campaign trail. Trump has let loose on both Democrats and Republicans, rival candidates, lawmakers, journalists and even pop culture icons. He blasted Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), questioning the Vietnam veteran's service and saying he was "not a war hero," which brought him wide criticism. Trump held 24 percent support among likely Republican voters according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll earlier this week. But the poll also suggested his support dropped following the remarks about McCain. Trump, though, is showing no sign he'll tone down his...

The footage features Dr. Savita Ginde, the Vice President and Medical Director of PPRM in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Ginde tells actors posing as buyers from a fake human biologics company known as Biomax that payment per organ will be the most financially beneficial for Planned Parenthood. She said, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”...

The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Affairs against the Planned Parenthood affiliate on behalf of the pro-life Colorado Family Action. A lawsuit filed against Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains and four unidentified employees on behalf of the girl was settled earlier this year. Natalie L.

    A major feminist author and former Planned Parenthood member shredded the U.S. media Wednesday for its “shockingly unprofessional” failure to cover the release of secret videos showing alleged trafficking in fetal organs by employees of Planned Parenthood. Camille Paglia, a self-described “dissident feminist” and widely-syndicated cultural critic, made her remarks as part of a three-day interview series with the website Salon. She was discussing her overall displeasure with the modern state of the American media, and said the case of Planned Parenthood was a key recent example of its decline:

CMP is the organization behind the series of three videos released over the past three weeks exposing the alleged harvesting and sale of body parts from aborted babies by Planned Parenthood – body parts that are then purchased by StemExpress. CMP has alleged that the fees paid by StemExpress to Planned Parenthood violate federal law prohibiting the sale and trafficking of human tissue. While Planned Parenthood...

    One of the largest public relations firms in Washington D.C. circulated a memo Monday night urging members of the media to refrain from airing damning videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of organs and tissue of aborted fetuses. Politico is reporting that Planned Parenthood hired SKDKnickerbocker to help manage blowback from the videos, which were produced by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress. According to Politico, SKDKnickerbocker sent the memo to unnamed “reporters and producers” asking them to blackball the videos — the third of which was released on Tuesday. “The extremists who entered Planned Parenthood labs under...

They are seeking damages for defamation and infliction of emotional distress. Rolling Stone apologized in December for "discrepancies" in the account, after the story sparked a...

    What If Planned Parenthood Was Law-Abiding? by Daniel Clark Public outrage over the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress has been driven largely by PP’s apparent admissions of illegal activities. It’s plain to see that the population control organization is involved in the illegal marketing of fetal body parts, and its senior medical director, Deborah Nucatola, basically admitted that the abortionists are still using the partial-birth procedure that has been illegal since 2003. Mary Gatter, another PP medical director, ghoulishly suggested “using a less crunchy technique to get more whole specimens,” even though it...

King said they don't know the identity of the man who was killed nor his accomplice. The pair encountered the residents of the home – the 25-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman – as they were arriving home just before midnight, King said. "The two suspects approached them at...

The Governor’s statement came after a letter to Inslee by seven Republican legislators demanded that the state stop funding Planned Parenthood, and a letter from 34 GOP lawmakers asking Attorney General Bob Ferguson to investigate whether Planned Parenthood has been selling organs from aborted babies for financial gain. “Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a...

In the first week of July, 15 percent of Republicans supported Trump for president in a YouGov poll. By the third week, that support had almost doubled, to 28 percent—with another 10 percent listing him as their second choice. Something happened in July to send Trump’s numbers soaring. That something may have been the murder of Kathryn Steinle. On July 5, the 32-year-old Steinle posed with her father for a photograph on a San Francisco pier at 6:30 on a Wednesday...

Logically, some are starting to ask, “Can Trump win?” Pat Buchanan wrote a column arguing that it could happen. Buchanan thinks Trump touches all the right nerves in politics today, a man who mocks the political establishment of both parties and is loathed by the mainstream media. The more they discount him, the higher his poll numbers rise. Buchanan doesn’t claim that Trump will win, but says unless Donald commits some kind of egregious...

    The University of New Hampshire has issued a Bias-Free Language Guide which identifies the word “American” as a “problematic” term which should not be used. Other “problematic” words on the taxpayer-funded school’s lengthy list include “mothering,” “fathering,” “healthy,” “homosexual,” “rich,” “poor” and “senior citizen,” notes Campus Reform. The goal of the politically-correct UNH Bias-Free Language Guide is “to invite inclusive excellence” on the public campus. The guide’s broad and extensive, 4,812-word attempt to police language includes an introductory quote by Melissa Harris-Perry and covers virtually every nook and cranny of radical leftist identity politics imaginable. The word “American” is “problematic,”...

    FIVE TIMES — in 1962, 1968, 1972, 1976, and 1994 — Massachusetts voters have been asked to jettison their state's flat-rate income tax and replace it with a system of graduated tax brackets. Each time they have unequivocally refused to do so.After that many rejections, even the most importunate suitor usually gets the message. But for some liberal true believers, all can never be right with the world as long as Article 44 of the Massachusetts Constitution commands that taxes "shall be levied at a uniform rate throughout the commonwealth upon incomes derived from the same class of property."So here we...

    A paper flyer hangs on a pole in New Hampshire advertising a “Young Americans for Hillary” party. It features a black-and-white photo of a young, Bohemian Hillary, and promises to include, in addition to “political discussion” and “a good time,” pizza, “Hillary swag,” and “young people.” Two days before the event, none of the RSVP reminders were torn from the flyer; a clear sign that just because Team Hillary may be ready for her coronation, not everybody else is. Hillary Clinton’s likeability problem is no secret. Her favorability among Americans has been sliding since 2012; and a Gallup poll released...

    President Obama has wrapped up his tour of Africa. It was notable, insofar as that word can be applied to the trip, for his somewhat condescending and neo-colonial lecture to his hosts on the need to ease up on the old homophobia. Certainly, Africa is not terribly gay-friendly. But nor are other parts of the planet. In his ardent wooing of Iran, for example, he doesn't seem to have been perturbed in the least by his new best friends' executions of homosexuals, anymore than he is by the brutalization of gays elsewhere in the Muslim world. You might deduce in...

    I had a lot of summer jobs. I was a foot messenger in New York for a couple of summers. I worked as a receptionist and mail room flunky. Before my junior year of high school, I briefly sold ice cream snacks -- sort of yuppie bonbons -- on the street for a company called Love Bites. The uniform was a tight red T-shirt (with a cupid over the heart), a straw hat, cane and snug brown shorts. When my manager asked me to work weekend nights in the (famously gay) West Village, I defected to a company that sold...

    The Minnesota dentist who authorities say killed a beloved Zimbabwe lion named Cecil donated to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. Federal Elections Commission (FEC) forms show Walter James Palmer, a dentist in Eden Prairie, Minn., donated $5,000 to the Romney campaign in 2012.

    The Center for Medical Progress has now issued a third recording of Planned Parenthood officials explaining their grotesque trafficking in baby body parts. It is even more devastating than the first two. The "news" media barely covered the second installment. They will probably pass over this one altogether. Trump World is apparently far more important than the extermination of babies for profit. The star of the new video is Holly O'Donnell, a young phlebotomist who worked for six months as a "procurement technician" for a company called Stem Express, which buys baby "specimens" from Planned Parenthood. She thought she would...
  • Baby Harvesting Scandal: Aborted Baby Organs are IMPLANTED INTO RATS – Grown for Transplants

    On Tuesday the third undercover video of Planned Parenthood’s despicable harvesting practices was released by the Center for Medical Progress. The latest video shows actual harvesting of aborted baby organs in a Planned Parenthood clinic. ** Planned Parenthood later warned media outlets NOT TO AIR the undercover video of the baby organ harvesting. But the controversy does not end there… The aborted baby body parts are often implanted into rats until they grow large enough to be transplanted into a person. It’s like something straight from a science fiction novel. Live Science reported:

    In part one of our three-day conversation with Camille Paglia, the brilliant cultural critic talked Bill Cosby, Bill Clinton and the odd, persistent return of ’90s political correctness. Today she takes on even hotter-button topics: Religion and atheism, Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” legacy, liberals and Fox News, and presidential candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
