    resident Obama finally made it down to Baton Rouge to see the flooding -- after finishing his vacation on tony Martha's Vineyard, of course. The entire charade is a lesson in leftist hypocrisy. The same press that excoriated President Bush for flying over New Orleans to view the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 didn't make a peep about Obama prioritizing his golf games. In fact, come to think of it, it wasn't just the press that criticized President Bush's response to Katrina. During his 2008 campaign for the presidency, Obama himself said, "We can talk about what happened...

    Although climate change is thought of as simply a political football, it has been a heated topic among meteorologists for years. I, for one, have changed my conclusion over time on whether humans are responsible for the increased heat content of the Earth. I write this article not to change your mind about global warming; I simply want to show you why I changed mine. Early in my scientific studies at Nebraska, most believed that humans could never pollute this massive globe enough to make a measurable difference. As a student, I learned to never exclude any possibility until ultimately...

    Lifelike baby dolls designed to deter teenage girls from having children actually raise pregnancy rates, a major study suggests. The teenage pregnancy prevention programme, which is used in schools around the world, does not seem to work, according to the first proper trial to test it. Girls who took part were more, not less, likely to become pregnant compared to those who did not take part.

    When FBI Director James Comey announced in July criminal charges would not be brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for storing and transmitting top secret, classified information on a number of different private servers, this is the argument he made regarding intent (bolding is mine):  Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified...

    In 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fondly eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, a former member and recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. Clinton called Byrd “my friend and mentor” in a video message to commemorate his passing. As a young man in West Virginia, Byrd was involved in the KKK and reportedly recruited 150 members to the group. While serving in Congress, Byrd set the record for longest filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate with a 14-hour filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In a 2005 article titled “A Senator’s Shame,” the Washington Post’s Eric Pianin pilloried...

    [This column is excerpted from a speech given at the Turning Point USA Conference in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 3.]Socialism is still in vogue, regardless of its sorry record all over the world for the last century. The Free Stuff Army is on the march, especially in the United States. There’s something about deploying the government as a mugger to obtain the fruits of someone else’s labor that appeals to the worst in us. But it invariably leads to poverty, dishonesty and even tyranny. Years ago, I visited Jamaica when it was under a socialist government. Things had deteriorated. Trying...

    Democrat Hillary Clinton will accuse Donald Trump of embracing a brand of U.S. political conservatism associated with white nationalism and nativism when she makes a Nevada campaign stop on Thursday. Aides said Clinton will link Trump’s statements about immigration and religion to the rise of a political fringe movement in the U.S. known as the “alternative right”, which opposes multiculturalism and immigration. Clinton’s speech is an effort to keep attention focused on what a top aide called Trump’s “divisive and dystopian vision” as he tries to reverse his slumping position in opinion polls in key battleground states before the Nov....

    WASHINGTON -- This week I am going to do something unusual. I am going to enter into a conversation with another columnist. Doing so was not so unusual a few decades back. Bill Buckley and James Jackson Kilpatrick did it when provoked, and it was always interesting. But today columnists are godlike figures. They communicate solely with Mount Olympus, and the result is often a bit tedious. I propose to address the New York Post's Michael Goodwin and congratulate him on noting that mainstream media, or MSM, have passed yet another milepost in their decline. In his column this weekend,...

    Washington is not an easy-going town. You come here to argue policy with the big boys you should expect some rough-and-tumble. But you also should expect clean fights -- no biting, no spitting, no hitting below the belt. Whatever else divides us, we all value free speech and edifying debate, right? Not exactly. Leftwing “activists” -- often posing as journalists – have a habit of targeting and trolling those who deviate from the “politically correct” line. About five years ago, it became clear that a concerted effort was underway to defame me and the national security policy institute I founded...

    The nine-second video of two federal bureaucrats the White House posted on its blog last week was notable for something it omitted. That something was very big -- and putting it on display might not have fit with the apparent propaganda purpose of the video. The video itself starred EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who sat side-by-side at a table. The video starts with McCarthy and Foxx simultaneously scratching their signatures onto separate and apparently singular sheets of paper. Eight seconds into the nine-second clip, when McCarthy has finished signing her name, she looks up and...

    The Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela Ethiopian rock churches Megan Sauter • 08/25/2016 While many spectacular churches have been constructed in Ethiopia, perhaps the country’s most famous churches are the ones carved out of stone. Located 150 miles south of Aksum, Lalibela is the best example of Ethiopia’s hypogean (rock-hewn) architectural tradition. With 11 rock-hewn churches, Lalibela is understandably a place of pilgrimage for those in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The site Lalibela was originally called Roha, but it eventually took the name of King Lalibela, who ruled around 1200 C.E. as part of the Zagwe dynasty. King Lalibela is traditionally...

    On January 8, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson kicked off the War on Poverty during his State of the Union speech, declaring "unconditional war on poverty in America." Congress joined with him and created programs to provide benefits to those in need. "Our aim," stated Johnson, "is not only to relieve the symptoms of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." The focus was on how many people we could provide assistance to and how much money was spent, not on how many people moved upward into opportunity jobs and higher incomes. Since then, our government...

Ralf Jäger, interior minister of migrant crime-hit German state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) made the remarks amid intense discussion in Germany following calls by the national interior minister Thomas de Maiziere for a partial burqa ban.

So forgive those who feel that Trump's supposedly "outrageous" statements are nothing more than selective outrage, double standards, and the typical "Republicans are racist" meme. Democrats routinely say vulgar, bigoted, divisive, outrageous things while getting a toll-free pass. It wasn't Donald Trump, but Donna Brazile, then Al Gore's campaign manager, who said Republicans have a "white-boy attitude." It wasn't Donald Trump, but...

Physicist Don DeYoung wrote in 2013 in the Creation Research Society Quarterly that after 4.6 billion years, at the current lightning strike rate, every square meter of land should contain far more fossilized lightning strikes than it can even hold.1 New fulgurite research updates the numbers to bring this fulgurite problem into sharper focus....

    Emphasizing diversity has been the pitfall, not the strength, of nations throughout history. The Roman Empire worked as long as Iberians, Greeks, Jews, Gauls and myriad other African, Asian and European communities spoke Latin, cherished habeas corpus and saw being Roman as preferable to identifying with their own particular tribe. By the fifth century, diversity had won out but would soon prove a fatal liability. Rome disintegrated when it became unable to assimilate new influxes of northern European tribes. Newcomers had no intention of giving up their Gothic, Hunnish or Vandal identities. The propaganda of history's multicultural empires -- the...

Now, we realize that the press almost singularly spearheaded the presidential campaign of one Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, but in that case the candidate was spry enough to participate vigorously in his campaign, rather than being held together with duct tape and...

    Attorneys Tom O'Neal and Bryan Hoss said Monday that 26-year-old Madison Deal's death was caused by an attack by female inmates at the county workhouse and by inadequate medical care by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). District Attorney Neal Pinkston has asked for an investigation by the Sheriff's Office into the death of Ms. Deal. A spokesperson for the sheriff said a preliminary autopsy found the death was related to a medical problem and did not involve "physical trauma." The attorneys said, "On Wednesday, Aug. 10, Madison Deal, 26, of Chattanooga, turned herself into the Hamilton County Jail for...

    According to Dick Morris (a former political confidant and advisor to the Clintons), the coming election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is “America’s Armageddon.” This existential fight will determine whether the United States continues hurtling towards a socialist dictatorship, or reclaims its commitment to individual freedom and free enterprise backed by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law. It is the final, conclusive battle between the forces of good and evil. Hillary Clinton has several political and economic vulnerabilities that Donald Trump must exploit in the upcoming campaign to capture enough votes to win in...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let's listen to a little bit of Trump. This was in Austin last night and we've got some bites from what many are saying was another great Trump appearance. Here we go. TRUMP: Tonight's message is about redeclaring our independence as a country. On November 8th, a very, very important date, we are going to declare our independence from special interests, corrupt politicians, and I might add, very corrupt politicians, and from a rigged system that benefits only the insiders. We are going declare our independence from politicians who don't listen to us and media executives, they...

    In what analysts are suggesting is highly suspicious, establishment voices want American intelligence agencies to feed GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump “fake” briefings. As the Republican and Democrat nominees begin receiving classified intelligence briefings, questions surrounding the accuracy and completeness of the information Trump is getting may indeed be warranted. For one, top officials and prominent voices, including Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, have openly and repeatedly called for intelligence agencies to supply “fake” briefings to the Republican nominee.There are other reasons to be concerned. Even before the classified information began flowing, Trump had made explosive comments...
  • San Francisco's subway has a creative solution to stop its elevators from smelling like urine

    08/24/2016 6:03:53 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 86 replies
    The so-called "self flush and sanitizing system" is part of a $2 million effort to fight BART's stench problem. The agency also plans to tear up the floorboards of 80 elevators and replace them with a coated material that makes the elevators water-tight. While it may prevent urine from seeping into the machinery, it's unclear whether sealing the urine is the best solution for smell. If the misting system at Civic Center works, BART wants to install it at other downtown San Francisco and Oakland locations. The work on the floors is expected to be complete in April.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: New York Times: "Think Hillary Clinton Will Win in a Landslide? Don't Bet on It." So we've got this new poll from Florida Atlantic University, Trump up two, 43 to 41 over Hillary in Florida. We've got a Reuters poll that shows Hillary up 12 nationally, but remember in that poll they don't count the undecideds. Now, in all these battleground states, the narrative is that Trump is losing. Who cares about the national polls, they say, in these battleground states, states Trump has to win, you can barely see him anymore. He's in the rearview mirror...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Okay, so Trump is apparently softening his position on immigration. That's what the Drive-Bys are saying. Trump is now saying, "Well, I don't know about deportation. Well, we're gonna talk about it. Well, some of these are really good people" And the Drive-Bys are just ecstatic 'cause they think Trump is totally reversing himself, and they think Trump is totally reversing himself on his number one issue, the only reason he has support, they think he's committing suicide. So the Drive-Bys went out and they started doing man-on-the-street interviews with Trumpists. And they wanted to know, "How...
  • University dean bucks ‘safe space’ trend in letter to incoming freshmen

    Where institutions of higher learning offered students in past generations an opportunity to expand their horizons, today’s universities have largely become insulated purveyors of leftist groupthink. Social justice activists — both staff and students — on major campuses have increasingly demanded “safe spaces” or similarly anti-free-speech zones in an effort to silence opinions they do not support. At least one dean, however, is having none of it. In a recent letter to incoming freshmen, the College of the University of Chicago Dean John Ellison explained students should be prepared to have their pre-existing notions challenged.
