    As a portrait photographer, I am always trying to make people feel comfortable in front of my camera so I can capture a real emotion from them. But what if I was able to make people feel so uncomfortable in front of the camera that I could guarantee an interesting portrait every time? This is the idea behind my latest series: The Taser Photoshoot. I've edited two different videos as well as a behind the scenes in the full post below.

    The grieving father of one of the six students shot dead by the 'virgin killer' in California on Friday, led a rousing call for a change in gun laws at a memorial today. As Richard Martinez addressed a crowd of about 20,000 who gathered for the University of California Santa Barbara memorial, the crowd got to their feet and joined his chant of 'Not One More'.

    It’s been almost 40 years since Wolverine’s first appearance on the very last page of The Incredible Hulk #180. In comic book time, of course, Wolverine is much older: Over a hundred years old, a century-plus lifespan that has seen the man called Logan become a soldier, a samurai, a superhero, an X-Man, an Avenger, the amnesiac victim of horrific scientific experiments, a renegade, a teacher. This September, that’s going to end.

    NYT ^ | April 12, 2014 | By David E. Sanger
    WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to...

    Archie fans might want to brace themselves: The beloved character will die this July. Archie Comics announced Tuesday that the lovable redhead Archie Andrews will bite the proverbial dust, to cap the recent “Life With Archie” series. “We’ve been building up to this moment since we launched ‘Life With Archie’ five years ago, and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie’s life as an adult had to also show his final moment,” said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater in a statement. While details of the character’s impending death are scant, it has been revealed that Archie...

A depraved photographer accused of abusing and exploiting young models enjoys access to the entertainment industry's hottest female stars, from Rihanna to Lady Gaga to Beyonce to Miley Cyrus. He counts "progressive" feminist celebs among his most intimate friends. He's even photographed President Obama.

    10/29/13 - Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in early 2012, appeared on Capitol Hill Tuesday for a hearing regarding the controversial "Stand Your Ground" laws. When it came time for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to speak at the hearing, he informed the still-grieving mother that Stand Your Ground laws actually benefit African-Americans as much as, if not more than, they do whites. Cruz began by offering his condolences for Fulton's loss, but quickly moved on to defend the trial by jury process that found Zimmerman not guilty of murder. He...

    Although they may not realize it, some supporters of the dead teenager Trayvon Martin are actually exploiting him, using his death to advance their own personal agendas. That is very disturbing when you think about it. After the acquittal of George Zimmerman, one loon out in San Francisco justified some mob-driven property damage, saying: "We have to grow a new society. A people society. Not one where Wells Fargo, the Federal Reserve, all these big banks. We need a whole new system!" A protester in D.C. said: "We don't get democracy. We get capitalism. We get white supremacy."

    Liberals have an uncanny knack for designing solutions that do not address the problem at hand, and they're doing it again in their current effort to use the Sandy Hook shootings as fodder for promoting stringent gun control measures. It's as if President Obama and his fellow travelers lie in wait for the unfolding of big events that they can use to incite the public's passions and thereby gain popular support for otherwise unpopular government action. Liberals aren't just exploiting Sandy Hook to promote their unpopular gun agenda; some are now invoking false charges of racism to aid their...

Ironically, in the video the children plead to increase Social Security taxes so our seniors can have a secure retirement. Too bad Van Jones isn't telling these kids that when they get a job and start paying into the Social Security system, they'll never see a dime of their own money back when they retire. Points made in the video: 1. Invest in American's Infrastructure 2. Create 21st Century...

    MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A 29-year-old medical marijuana patient accused of sharing his pot with a 15-year-old girl in Missoula has been charged with a felony. Benjamin Levi Bartlett appeared in Justice Court on Friday on a charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs. Bail was set at $25,000, and Bartlett has been ordered to surrender his medical marijuana card. Police say an officer riding his bike along a river trail in July saw the girl hide something beneath a rock, and a search turned up a pipe and a baggie of marijuana. Court records say Bartlett told the officer...

    China invested a total of $14.37 million in North Korea in 2005, up $9 million from 2004 and $1.5 million from 2002. China invested only $160,000 in 1998 and $480,000 in 1994. It is believed more Chinese capital is flowing to the North because of the opaque nature of both regimes. But it is clear that China's investment has jumped since 2002, when North Korea adopted an economic reform package which eased restrictions on foreign investment.

    Many critics argue that Christopher Columbus gave us a devil's bargain. In October 1492 that Italian explorer, working for Spain, opened America to his fellow Europeans. The result: we got a prosperous New World by impoverishing, enslaving and murdering the natives who were already here. But this view fails to distinguish between two types of exploitation—one over other humans and the other over nature: the former which should be expunged from our moral codes and civilized society, the latter which is the essence of morality and civilization. The former form of exploitation was suffered especially by the tens of millions...

    An insightful article in the sophisticated leftwing site, Counterpunch, further strips Ms. Shirley Sherrod of the martyr's rags she has been wearing since first exposed and then un-exposed as a racist Ag official two weeks back. The author, Ron Wilkins, had worked under an assumed name at Sherrod's New Communities Incorporated (NCI) in the 1970s. A former organizer with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Wilkins had been tasked with discovering the reasons for "NCI's continued poor performance." What he discovered was that at NCI "the young and old worked long hours with few breaks, the pay averaged sixty-seven cents an...

    Readers who read my original Washington Examiner post about Shirley Sherrod know that she and husband Charles received $150,000 each for "pain and suffering” as part of "a thirteen million dollar settlement in the minority farmers law suit Pigford vs Vilsack." Based on history presented by Ron Wilkins yesterday at Counterpunch, it's appropriate to ask: "Whose pain and suffering?" It now seems that Mr. and Mrs. Sherrod inflicted quite a bit of pain and suffering on their own -- and on some of the very people Mr. Sherrod described as "our own" in a speech earlier this year -- at...

    When I was a college student, a summer internship at a big-city newspaper seemed just the thing to boost my nascent journalism career. But instead, I spent the summers as a big-city doorman, filling in for the regulars while they were on vacation. The reason was simple: Being a doorman paid a lot more, and I needed the money for tuition. A generation later, for a student in my shoes, the situation is quite a bit worse. Nowadays many internships don't pay anything at all, yet landing an internship has come to seem almost essential. The National Assn. of Colleges...

    In a final act of desperation, Barack Obama has exploited cancer patient Natoma Canfield of Ohio to aggressively sell his unpopular and politically uncertain attempt at so-called health care "reform," Obamacare. While at it, he also lied about her situation to scare ill-informed Americans into supporting his plan to wreck one-sixth of the US economy. Appearing at a rally in Strongsville, Ohio, Obama cited cancer patient Natoma Canfield's story to drum up emotion, block out the facts, and discourage a rational understanding of his health care "reform." Last week, Senate Democrats exploited an 11-year-old boy who recently lost his mother...

A jury of seven men and five women deliberated 2 hours 20 minutes before returning a verdict of guilty in the first trial of a dozen members of the Yearning for Zion Ranch just outside this rural hamlet in West Texas.

That’s because white Americans have had the charge of racism beaten into their consciousness for more than six decades, now.

The men were stopped while driving on Route 414. According to the Farm Bureau, there were no issues when their vehicle was checked, and none had outstanding warrants. Farm Bureau President Phil Wagner called the incident “a clear case of racial profiling.” But A.J. Price, a public affairs officer with the Border Patrol’s Buffalo district headquarters, said officers approached the men because they were blocking the intersection of Routes 104 and 414. Wagner disputed...

John Pascoe said the infants were being sold mainly for illegal adoption but also for sexual exploitation, slavery and begging. He said demand for babies who only knew their adoptive parents was high.

    It makes one wonder what makes Al Gore leave his palatial mansion with the giant carbon footprint, take a gas guzzling limo, to his private plane and spread CO2 all across the world just to promote the global warming hoax. It can't be that he actually believes the distorted research he peddles. If that was the case, he wouldn't be such a major polluter. Maybe it has something to do with protecting his investment. After all, he is founder and chairman of a venture capital company that has invested about $1 billion in companies that just might make a bundle...

    An 8-year-old Saudi girl has divorced her middle-aged husband after her father forced her to marry him last year in exchange for about $13,000, her lawyer said Thursday. Saudi Arabia has come under increasing criticism at home and abroad for permitting child marriages. The United States, a close ally of the conservative Muslim kingdom, has called child marriage a "clear and unacceptable" violation of human rights. The girl was allowed to divorce the 50-year-old man who she married in August after an out-of-court settlement had been reached in the case, said her lawyer, Abdulla al-Jeteli. The exact date of the...

    For well over a century, socialists, progressives, and even many Christians have railed against the capitalist exploitation of workers. They denounce capitalists—whether the Carnegies and Fricks of yesteryear or the Nikes of today—for paying low wages for hard work. Their antagonism toward individual and corporate targets is misplaced. The inexorable law of supply and demand, not greedy exploiters, determines wages. When the supply of labor exceeds capital’s demand for labor, wages are low. Carnegie could pay low wages because if Smith wasn’t willing to work for a pittance, Jones was. Why? Because those low wages were superior to Jones’ other...

    Emma Watson says she is at that strange age when she’s “not a woman yet, but I’m not a girl anymore.” At 18 years old, the “Harry Potter” starlet – whom the Times of London calls “tiny and pretty and delightfully brought up” – is clearly poised for adulthood, and even says she would go naked in a film for the right role.
  • Bush Urges Support So Terrorists Can’t Exploit Transition Period

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 6, 2008 – President Bush warned today that terrorists could use the government transition under way as an opportunity to attack, and urged his staff to give the incoming administration the support it needs to “hit the ground running.” Bush addressed members of his Cabinet, including Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, and executive office staffers on the South Lawn of the White House. Terrorists might be tempted to take advantage of the first U.S. wartime presidential transition in four decades, he warned. “We're in a struggle against violent extremists determined to attack us, and they would like...
