    A Silicon Valley tech company that reportedly made $200 million last quarter was importing foreign workers from India and paying them $1.21 an hour. According to the Labor Department, "about eight employees of Fremont-based Electronics For Imaging [EFI] were flown in from India and worked 120-hour weeks to help with the installation of computers at the company's headquarters." NBC Bay Area noted that "the employees were paid their regular hourly wage in Indian rupees, which translated to $1.21." EFI claimed it "unintentionally overlooked laws that require even foreign employees to be paid based on local US standards." The company reportedly...

    Let she who is without geography sin cast the first globe! On her MSNBC show last night, Rachel Maddow mercilessly mocked Darrell Issa for confusing Guinea with Guyana. The Republican congressman made his mistake during a discussion of the country in which the latest Ebola outbreak began. Issa said it was "Guyana," a South American country, whereas in fact it was Guinea, a West African one. Fair enough. Issa should have gotten his countries straight. But of all the hosts in the MSNBC lineup, Rachel Maddow should have been the last to have the chutzpah to highlight Issa's blooper. For...

    The official autopsy of Michael Brown leaked Wednesday. It strongly suggests that there was an altercation between Brown and Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson before the 18-year-old man was shot dead on August 9. The autopsy also revealed that Brown had been using marijuana, and had enough THC in his system to trigger hallucinations. The Justice Department is angry — with the leak. The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.” That’s rich coming from a Justice Department...

The company is currently valued at roughly $31 billion.

    As a Christian and a conservative, I don't often find myself in agreement with liberal comedian Bill Maher and atheist author Sam Harris. I found Maher's so called documentary, "Religulous," fatuous and intellectually dishonest. Harris, while perhaps less strident than his fellow New Atheists, is essentially a materialist, grounding his critique of religion in the claim that it is a "failed science." Not surprisingly, I find his work condescending and ontologically off the mark. Recently, however, Harris and Maher found themselves at the center of controversy for criticizing the Liberal response, or lack thereof, to the atrocities being committed by...

    Houston's embattled equal rights ordinance took another legal turn this week when it surfaced that city attorneys, in an unusual step, subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors who oppose the law and are tied to the conservative Christian activists that have sued the city. Opponents of the equal rights ordinance are hoping to force a repeal referendum when they get their day in court in January, claiming City Attorney David Feldman wrongly determined they had not gathered enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot. City attorneys issued subpoenas last month during the case's discovery phase, seeking, among other communications,...

Though the entry fee for the event ranged from $1,000 to $32,000, the President insisted that “it was an opportunity for the middle class to have a say in the electoral process” contending that “the $1,000 minimum fee was less than half the annual $2500 savings in health insurance premiums that each middle class family has experienced under the Affordable Care Act.” As for billionaire host Rich Richman, the President asserted that “there are...

Twenty-three Republican and three Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter released on Thursday to President Barack Obama asking the State Department to impose a travel ban and restrict visas issued to citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. In the letter, dated Oct. 8, they also asked U.S. health and border control officials to consider quarantine for anyone who arrives from the affected nations...

But Peters' investments in the energy sector are coming under increasing scrutiny, especially after...

Before that, some proposed amending the Constitution to lock in the traditional definition of marriage. Ronald Reagan wanted a presidential line-item veto added to the Constitution. On nearly every occasion, Democrats opposed such efforts, not just on the merits but on the puffed-up principle that we mustn't "tinker" or "tamper" with the genius of the Founding Fathers' constitutional design.

Obama's public speeches on a three-day trip, like the one he delivered at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, on Thursday, covered many of the same talking points he delivers at Democratic fund-raising events. But the tone was significantly sharper. In fact, the slashing rhetoric he used before an adoring crowd in the Texas capital may well have surpassed the typically sober review of the status...

In the modern age we have tended to reduce the idea of hypocrisy to duplicity. The modern notion is that a hypocrite is someone who says one thing but does another, a person who is two-faced, inconsistent, or phony. Jesus’ teaching on hypocrisy does not exclude this definition, but it is far richer.

    The Bergdahl affair is proving to be very enlightening. Take for instance the liberal hypocrisy concerning two guys with beards, both of whom have religious affiliations with credos that have strong opinions concerning homosexuality. One of the two bearded fellows is Bob Bergdahl, father of recently-released POW Bowe Bergdahl. Besides his whiskers, Bob seems to proudly exhibit a strong affinity for Islam, a religion that tolerates the mistreatment of women, children, and homosexuals, and has a violent faction that has killed thousands of innocent Americans. Bob is currently one of the two top recipients of the left’s politically-correct attention, protection,...
  • Explaining Sharia Law part five: “Nikah mutah” Sharia’s phony “ten minute marriages” to hookers

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/2/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Sharia law is nothing if not hypocritical. It forbids what is good (rights for women) and sanctions what is evil-–savagery toward women. Sharia wraps woman in cloth bags to “protect their virtue” but treats women like farm animals. In the perpetual frat boy’s dream which is adherence to Sharia, women have no rights; they are not esteemed or celebrated in anyway but rather taken advantage of constantly. Male Sharia adherents see women only as specialized animals good for relieving their sexual demands. Female Sharia adherents are not allowed to have an opinion let alone express one. One of the more...

    In many of his years as a rapper, Snoop Dogg seemed to embrace guns: he was arrested multiple times for gun possession and lyrics from his songs included references such as “So Snoopy he went straight to the trunk of his car (And what he get?), he got his gun and they start running hard.” But these days, the 42-year-old star, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr. and also goes by Snoop Lion, is pushing a decidedly anti-gun message. On Thursday night, he appeared at a benefit here with fellow rapper MC Hammer, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana...

    With public school students using #ThanksMichelle to tweet photos of their skimpy, stomach-turning school lunches, I decided to look at what Michelle Obama's daughters are served at Sidwell Friends school, and it turns out the girls dine on lunches from menus designed by chefs. While the Obama daughters have enjoyed dishes like chicken coconut soup, local butternut squash soup, crusted tilapia, they also get their fill of what Mrs. Obama might consider junk food. This week, for example, they'll enjoy meatball subs, BBQ wings, and ice cream, in addition to chicken curry, deviled egg salad and the intriguing "Chef's Choice."...
  • Ravens' Ray Rice apologizes for actions in March

    His voice cracking with emotion, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice acknowledged Friday that he “failed miserably” and apologized for the actions that led to his arrest on assault charges. Rice was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, in which he allegedly struck fiancee Janay Palmer. The couple married in late February, and both went to the stage at the team training complex for their first public comment since the arrest. “I failed miserably, but I wouldn’t call myself a failure because I’m working my way back up,” Rice said. Rice was accepted Tues­day into a diversion...
  • Eric Holder Was Right

    national review ^ | 5/23/14 | Charles C W Cooke
    Yes, certain subjects are off limits. Just ask Mark Cuban. Eric Holder famously suggested that, on the question of race at least, America represents a “nation of cowards.” After watching the crucifixion of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban over the past couple of days, it’s nigh on impossible not to think that he’s right. In an interview arranged by the business magazine Inc., Cuban went out on a limb. Answering a question about Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, he started by reiterating his view that not only is cultural censorship a force for ill, but that it is impossible...
  • CNN staffer was fired for track suits Piers Morgan ‘loved’: suit

    Apparently, sombreros aren’t considered business casual at CNN. A gay ex-CNN staffer from Queens claims he was discriminated against and eventually fired for wearing extravagant ensembles that included mariachi suits, yellow track suits and cowboy hats to work. In a $65 million Brooklyn federal lawsuit filed Thursday, former CNN studio technician William Kane claims that a supervisor, John Silva, hated his taste in clothes and recommended that he transfer to the makeup or entertainment units. Kane asserts that several on-air personalities — including Anderson Cooper and former talk show host Piers Morgan — objected to Silva’s treatment of Kane and...

    But the content is eye-opening. O’Keefe’s crew pose as a Middle Eastern potentate named “Muhammad” and his American ad executive. They approach the Tickells with an offer of $9 million to finance an anti-fracking film. “Muhammad’s” motives are clearly expressed: he wants to keep the U.S. dependent on Middle Eastern oil, and to that end he wants to stamp out fracking. The Tickells have no problem with this at all. They discuss the need to keep the film’s source of funding secret, and talk about how they can create a false impression as to who paid for it. You hear...
