    The Sovereign Man ^ | 04/17/2014 | Simon Black
    Here’s a guy you want to bet on– Li Ka-Shing. Li is reportedly the richest person in Asia with a net worth well in excess of $30 billion, much of which he made being a shrewd property investor. Li Ka-Shing was investing in mainland China back in the early 90s, way back before it became the trendy thing to do. Now, Li wants out of China. All of it. Since August of last year, he’s dumped billions of dollars worth of his Chinese holdings. The latest is the $928 million sale of the Pacific Place shopping center in Beijing– this...

    There were some big wins for the defense today, including several important rulings just before the Court recessed for the day. By far the biggest news, however, is the utter implosion of the State’s “scream” narrative into which they had invested the heart and soul of their theory of the case. There’s a reason that the State’s last witnesses before resting were Trayvon’s mother, Sabryna Fulton, and half-brother, Jaharvis Fulton, both of whom claimed that the screaming voice on the Jenna Lauer 911 recording was that of Trayvon Martin.

    SNIPPET: "TERROR mastermind Rashid Rauf has been linked to a fresh Al Qaida plot to launch attacks on the US. The Birmingham-born extremist has been named by witnesses due to testify against Najibullah Zazi, who was arrested for plotting suicide bombings in New York. MI6 officers have linked the plot to a complex terror network said to be directed from Pakistan by Rauf and fellow jihadists. Zazi, 24, was identified through an intercepted communication, and was further implicated by US national Bryant Neal Vinas, who was captured in Pakistan last November.

In his statement, the bishop spoke of the real meaning and a purpose of marriage “that homosexual relationships cannot fulfill.”  Bishop William Murphy's response came in reaction to Suozzi’s announcement in The New York Times that he “now supports gay marriage.”  The Rockville Centre bishop reiterated Church teaching on the subject and...

The grant, made last November, refers to prostitutes as "female sex workers"--or FSW--and their handlers as "gatekeepers."

In one case, prosecutors said, one of the women was forced to eat 25 hot chili peppers at one time.

It is a generational shift comparable to that of the infamous '60s, and it will involve as much revolt and upheaval. In this case, revolution is desperately needed, for the previous revolution has almost destroyed the country. The new revolution will repair the country. Yet 2006 will not be the beginning of the revolution – it has already been gathering steam now for several years. But it will, I predict, commence the vigorous...

Murphy said the restructuring would "not mean a major change in the content of what we offer, which is the teaching of the Church," in a column in this week's diocesan newspaper. But critics said they feared the changes - coming two weeks after he named a new seminary rector known for strict orthodoxy - signal...

    When it comes to fighting government fraud, Washington state lacks a key weapon: a state False Claims law. The federal government, thirteen states and many local jurisdictions (including Washington, D.C. and San Francisco) have adopted False Claims laws. These measures allow anyone with unique knowledge and evidence of fraud against government to act as a "private attorney general" and sue the wrongdoer on behalf of the government. These citizen fraud fighters, however, are first required to petition the government attorneys to take action before filing suit. If that government doesn't take action, the citizen then is empowered to act on...

Experts agree: Political technology determines political success. Unfortunately the liberals know this fact all too well.
