    Exclusive: Jack Cashill points out BHO has yet to hear 'Moscow screams' There is one experience which most sincere ex-Communists share, wrote Whittaker Chambers in his classic conversion narrative Witness, and that is the epiphany, the road-to-Damascus moment, the instant they realize the life they have been living is a lie. Chambers memorably quotes one young woman about her fathers Damascus moment: He was immensely pro-Soviet and then you will laugh at me but you must not laugh at my father and then one night in Moscow he heard screams. Thats all. Simply...

    Experts warn that we should be prepared for more dengue in the US and around the world. ‘Hawaii is a piece of a much bigger phenomenon that’s happening globally,’ says Dr. Peter Hotez at Baylor College of Medicine. It’s peak tourism season in Hawaii, and the state’s Department of Health has issued a warning for visitors and residents: dengue fever is spreading on the Big Island. More than 150 people on Hawaii Island have been infected with the mosquito-borne virus.

    The U.S. Coast Guard announced today that they will suspend the search for the 12 missing Marines off Haleiwa at sunset. “The decision to suspend the search without finding survivors is particularly difficult,” said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. James Jenkins. A search, led by the Marine Corps, will continue for debris and remains, but the focus of the search is changing to a recovery and salvage operation.

This would be the fifth day of search-and-rescue operations.

"I threw my blanket off, put my slippers on and ran outside thinking it was a car accident," Elaray Navarro said. The Coast Guard was notified late Thursday of the crash by another civilian who saw the aircraft flying then disappear and a fireball. Someone else reported a flare in the sky, Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Scott Carr said.

    A tsunami generated by a massive earthquake off Alaska could cause major damage to California's economy and force 750,000 people to evacuate, a report published Wednesday warned. One third of all boats in California's marinas could be damaged or sunk, costing some $700 million in losses, while major ports would struggle to get huge cargo vessels out to sea in time to avoid being buffeted by tsunamis. Experts from the US Geological Survey (USGS) based their damage assessment on the scenario of a 9.1 magnitude quake off Alaska's Pacific Coast, which it said was "hypothetical but plausible." "In this scenario...

    Scientists: Tsunami Could Hit West Coast Tsunami scientists and public safety officials are closely watching an earthquake-prone nation with thousands of miles of crowded coastlines for signs of an imminent disaster. Indonesia? Japan? Try the United States. Experts say the West Coast could experience a calamity similar to the one they have been watching unfold half a world away. "People need to know it could happen," said geologist Brian Atwater of the U.S. Geological Survey. Scientists say grinding geologic circumstances similar to those in Sumatra also exist just off the Pacific Northwest coast. They are a loaded gun that could...

Japanese scientists used computer modelling to recreate the devastation from the ancient tsunami. The team from the Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution in Kobe say the work will help planners minimise the impact of any future wave. The researchers took clues from silt deposits found in the Puget Sound, a Pacific inlet above earthquake fault lines in the Seattle area. Experts say the tsunami could have reached up to seven metres in...

Last month, Judicial Watch persuaded the U.S. Supreme Court to issue an injunction to stop the counting of ballots in a race-based...

DHS did "not properly plan for or implement" the $155 million health care exchange, which is called the Kauhale On-Line Eligibility Application system, or KOLEA. "Poor planning and lack of effective leadership at the division level exacerbated already tight time constraints for developing KOLEA and forced the KOLEA Project Team to develop the eligibility and enrollment process while designing KOLEA," the audit states.

And he had read an interview in which the president described his ideal day as one spent at the Oahu beach. "It was almost a prose poem," Chang said. Obama imagined a sea turtle swimming in...

First draft of his remarks blame the attack on a video that somebody made for the culturally insensitive Christmas party that was being held by the department.And if you don’t think this drive-by is a major sacrifice let me assure you, it is; it means Barry...

    Scientists involved in Hawaii astronomy are hopeful that builders of a giant telescope planned for a mountain held sacred by Native Hawaiians don't give up on the project. A recent state Supreme Court decision invalidated the $1.4 billion project's permit to build on conservation land, which could delay construction by several years. The nonprofit company building the Thirty Meter Telescope hasn't yet indicated its next move. Protesters say they will continue to fight the telescope. ...

    The Supreme Court on Monday declined to review the ability of cities and states to prohibit semiautomatic high-capacity assault weapons that have been used in some of the nation’s most deadly recent mass shootings. The justices decided not to reconsider a lower court’s decision in a case from the city of Highland Park, Ill., near Chicago. But seven states — Maryland, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York — have similar bans, and all of the prohibitions remain in place. Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia said the court should review the ban, which “flouts” the court’s Second...

    Strict controls on the ownership and use of guns have been enacted in a number of polities in the United States. One of the supposed purposes of such laws is to reduce the murder rate. Murder rates in the FBI Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) consist of murder and non-negligent manslaughter.When strict controls do not produce low murder rates, such as in Chicago or Washington D.C., the claim is made that the problem is the easy access to guns in areas outside of the polity with the strict controls. In Washington, D.C., it is claimed that criminals can easily obtain...

    The State Supreme Court has rescinded the construction permit for the Thirty Meter Telescope, a $1.4 billion observatory planned for the state’s tallest mountain, Mauna Kea, a revered symbol in Hawaiian culture. Construction of the telescope, an international collaboration led by the California Institute of Technology and the University of California, had been stalled since April, when protesters blocked crews from the site.

    President Obama is sending an “expeditionary force” of U.S. military special operators to carry out raids against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, a move that expands on their decision to send about 50 special operators to Syria to coordinate air strikes. “In full coordination with the Government of Iraq, we’re deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to assist Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces and put even more pressure on [ISIS],” Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the House Armed Services Committee in announcing the new deployment on Tuesday. Carter got a hint of just how difficult it may be to sell...

    WASHINGTON -- Between the chilly temperatures and the pace of the push-ups, there was plenty to complain about after eight lawmakers straggled into the park behind the Longworth House Office Building for their regular 6:30 a.m. workout. While the others in the group griped and groaned on a recent Tuesday, Representative Tulsi Gabbard, 34, her Hindu prayer beads wrapped around a wrist for her daily yoga meditation, said little. "Tulsi, you hearing a lot of whining?" asked Representative Markwayne Mullin, a burly Oklahoma Republican and former professional mixed martial arts fighter who leads the workouts, mocking the complaints of her...

    Courtesy Shutterstock The Supreme Court has just issued an order (read it here) blocking the racially discriminatory separatist election in Hawaii. The order enjoins (stops) the counting of ballots and certification of results pending further order of the Supreme Court. I covered the electionhere and here at PJ Media. Only one race is permitted to register to vote with Hawaiian government officials for the separatist election.Hawaii has given a private organization millions of dollars to run the election. They believe these actions are constitutional. Judicial Watch has sued Hawaii, and the Public Interest Legal Foundation has filed an emergency...
