  • Why not Gov. Mike Pence in 2016?

    Hotair ^ | 04/17/2014 | AllahPundit
    If you’re wondering why this otherwise prosaic Bloomberg piece about Pence’s national future begins with a mention of the Koch brothers, it’s probably because the guy who wrote it worked for Paul Sarbanes and, briefly, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz before resuming his career as an impartial reporter.But never mind that. Is Pence the dark horse? “I have no doubt that he would make a great president,” said Steven Chancellor, the chief executive officer of Evansville, Indiana-based American Patriot Group, the parent of a company that makes ready-to-eat rations for the Pentagon. “He certainly distinguished himself in the House” and is “off...

    Megyn Kellys "Kelly File" is a great news show. Shes incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on...

    A humorous video walks you through the exodus of the Jews as if it happened today.What if Moses had Facebook? That's the question a Jewish group in Israel began formally asking in 2011. And by Monday - on the eve of Passover - more than 2.5 million people had clicked in to watch a YouTube video trying to answer that question, all with a jazzy version of the Passover classic, "Dayenu," set in the background. When Aish.com first publicized the "Google Exodus - Passover Movie," just 50,000 people had seen the clever 2:17-minute clip. Silicon Valley plays a prominent role...

In March, state Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said during a debate over a fetal heartbeat bill that 99 percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion. They ain't gonna let her have the baby. In the same March...

Carol Thebarge opted to give up her job after 35 year instead of unfriending her students on Facebook. "Do we have the right as teachers, when we respect our students and our students respect us, to have that relationship?" Thebarge told WMUR. "I feel like mine is very safe. I have never been inappropriate." School administrators at Stevens High School told Thebarge that her account was a potential safety concern, especially after another teacher was let go after being...

    What do the forced departure of Brendan Eich from Mozilla and #CancelColbert have in common? They are both examples of Fakectivism. Fakectivism is social media activism by small numbers of people that is integrated into the news cycle because it matches the media’s political agenda.Every Tea Party member knows that media coverage of actual protests is unequal. Twenty students, most of them volunteers at an environmental non-profit, protesting Keystone will get media coverage that a thousand Tea Party members protesting ObamaCare won’t receive.The same is true of online protests.Many of the real life protests covered by the media are fake....

    As Star Trek: Voyager Captain Kathryn Janeway, Kate Mulgrew knew her way around a solar system or two. So there was a certain irony to the actress voiceover work in the upcoming documentary The Principle, which focuses on the notion of geocentrism: the idea that the sun revolves around the Earth. But Mulgrew has dispelled the notion that she buys into the documentarys central premise, writing in a post on her Facebook page that she is not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at...

    Jere Brower, his wife Clara, and his 4-year-old daughter Ana, have a very good reason to believe Texas Congressman Ron Paul when he said people view his supporters as "dangerous." The 38-year-old Atlanta man and his family have been targeted by militant Ron Paul supporters, one of whom threatened to "kneecap" him, then rape his wife and young daughter. Mr. Brower said he has also received death threats from supporters of Ron Paul. The trouble started when Brower and some of his Facebook friends decided to have a laugh over Ron Paul's ties to racist and anti-semitic groups. He wrote...

    Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn't take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now....

    Via the Examiner, you can thank Ben Howe for producing this. Is it a presidential campaign teaser? The last line, borrowing Obama’s campaign slogan from 2008, seems freighted with extra significance. I’d never seen something like this from Cruz before either. At first blush, I thought maybe it was his way of stealing a little thunder from Rand Paul’s overt presidential maneuvering lately. Here’s Cruz reminding conservatives that Rand won’t be the only game in town next year.But after looking through his campaign YouTube account, I realize I’m wrong. Cruz has released at least two ads similar to this one...

The emergence of the photo comes just days after Palestinian activists on the University of Michigans campus leveled death threats and racial epithets at pro-Israel students who opposed a resolution to divest from Israel. Pro-Palestinian campus activists, angered by the student governments recent decision to reject their divestment measure, leveled death threats at one student and have reportedly called other pro-Israel students dirty Jew and kike.

CEOs from Facebook, Google, Netflix and others spent more than two hours with Obama in the Oval Office discussing their concerns about NSA spying programs, which have drawn outrage from tech companies whose data have been scooped up by the government. Joining Obama and the CEOs were Obamas commerce secretary, homeland security adviser, and counselor John Podesta, whom Obama has tasked with leading a review...

The left wants the church to be left and the right right. If the church was merely a human institution this would be understandable but as a both human and divine institution, it stands in the culture to convert souls to the Gospel.

Flight number MH370 has been missing since 8 March 2014, with searches for the aircraft having proven fruitless in the days since.

However, Courtney Love may have solved the mystery, posting a photo on Facebook, which she seems to believe shows the location of the missing plane - sadly after crashing in the...

    Connecticut gun rights activists are using yesterdays report of a home invasion by an on-line southwest Florida news service to bolster their opposition to the Constitution States new gun control law, and today Reason.com is reporting that one police agency is conducting an internal investigation of an officer who said he would like to bang down your door and come after your gun. This conflict is taking on all the earmarks of an approaching reckoning. The National Rifle Association last week discussed at length the confusion created around the new gun control law. It doesn't help when some folks apparently...

    I have just emerged from a 12 hour suspension of my Face Book posting privileges. My suspension was prompted by the FB PC/Tolerance/Diversity Police for what they indicated were hateful comments about Muslims and Islamic terrorists. I should like to take this opportunity to apologize to any Islamic terrorists offended by those remarks but most especially To the Islamic terrorists in Nigeria who, having nothing better to do one night several days ago, strolled into a village housing a Christian school and slit the throats, beheaded and burned alive 15 children and nuns. I have great difficulty reconciling your...

    Now you're gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola company, Mr. Obama. OK, maybe not Coke, but, youll have to answer to todays bubbly equivalent, which can also rot you from the inside out: Facebook. Yeah. So be warned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called President Barack Obama Wednesday night to complain about U.S. government actions that are undermining trust in the Internet, reports Politico, after a report that described how the National Security Agency posed as a Facebook server to inject malicious software into targets computers. I wonder if Zucks voice broke when he talked to Obama. I wonder if...

    "I need money". Greedy illegal alien Roy Ortiz is suing those who saved his life.- by Brian Hayes | Top Right NewsLast month we profiled an illegal alien felon who made nearly $200,000 by mass-filing frivolous lawsuits against L.A. restaurants. But that was just a creep trying to game the system, and the system (shamefully) letting him. This is truly disgusting. An illegal alien in Colorado is suing several first responders who took part in rescuing him last September, when he became trapped in his car during a flash flood. You heard that right. They saved Roy Ortiz' life --...

    Mark Zuckerberg lashed out at the government for its surveillance practices in a rant today on his Facebook page. When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine were protecting you against criminals, not our own government., Zuckerberg wrote. Zuckerberg and other major tech CEOs have called on the Obama administration to be more transparent about spying efforts. The Facebook co-founder, 29, said he vented about his concerns in a phone call to the president. The US government should be the champion for the internet, not a threat. They need to be much more transparent about what theyre doing,...

    A long time ago, Facebook launched an app store. If you didn't know that fact, don't be alarmed. People don't talk much about the Facebook App Center any more. That's because almost everyone downloads the apps they need from Apple's App Store and the Google Play store on Android. It's a powerful duopoly, and everyone is used to it. Apps and downloads are one of Apple's fastest-growing, least-talked about businesses. They generate $4.4 billion per quarter, and are projected to be more profitable than iPads and Macs. Android and the Google Play store that supplies it run on up to...

[The NSA] has sent out spam emails laced with the malware, which can be tailored to covertly record audio from a computers microphone and take snapshots...

Thousands of those workers report to the company's main campus at 1601 Willow Avenue, an address that was rechristened as "1 Hacker Way" after the company took over the old Sun Microsystems campus.

    Can banning one school-yard word really change the world? Sheryl Sandberg says yes. Sandberg -- the chief operating officer of Facebook and author of the best-selling book "Lean In" -- is spearheading the launch of a campaign today to ban the word "bossy," arguing the negative put-down stops girls from pursuing leadership roles. "We know that by middle school, more boys than girls want to lead," Sandberg said, "and if you ask girls why they don't want to lead, whether it's the school project all the way on to running for office, they don't want to be called bossy, and...
