  • ampaign yet again distracts from Podesta revelations with misinformation about RT

    As WikiLeaks continues to release emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta, team Clinton has attempted to deflect attention from the content, by again accusing Russia of “weaponizing” false information. After 14 separate batches leaks from Podesta’s email account, RT journalists simply doing their job and searching the WikiLeaks public database to uncover potentially damaging correspondence is enough for the Clinton campaign to continue claiming it is evidence of an alleged Russian conspiracy to interfere in the US elections

    Scott Adams Blog ^ | October 21, 2016 | Scott Adams
    Thanks to timely assists from Wikileaks, Trump has successfully framed Hillary Clinton as a crooked politician. Meanwhile, Clinton has successfully framed Trump as a dangerous monster. If the mainstream polls are accurate, voters prefer the crook to the monster. That makes sense because a crook might steal your wallet but the monster could kill you. As of today, Clinton has the superior persuasion strategy. Crook beats monster. Reality isn’t a factor in this election, as per usual. If the truth mattered, voters might care that the Democratic primaries were rigged against Sanders. They might care that the Clinton Foundation looks...

    While the media continues to excoriate Donald Trump for allegedly making insensitive remarks about former Ms. Universe Alicia Machado 20-years ago, they continue to conveniently ignore Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s troubling past. In particular, the media is ignoring a 1975 case in which Clinton served as defense attorney to a 41-year old child rapist. As a 27-year old Arkansas lawyer, Hillary Rodham took the case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year old man accused of raping 12-year old Kathy Shelton.

    Ottumwa, Iowa — An Ottumwa teen accused of sexually assaulting a toddler won't do any jail time. In July, Kraigen Grooms, 19, pleaded guilty to one county of Engaging in a Lascivious Act with a Child.

Laypersons and biologists alike are stumped as to what the mysterious creature in the video could be. Earth Mystery News reports that it could be anything from an “alien creature” to a Russian submarine to something as mundane as a wayward whale, as the Thames River connects to the ocean and has a history of being a temporary home to lost sea creatures. Take a look at the video that’s inspired so much controversy and debate.

Feran-Baum, who is not Sophia’s father, was babysitting on June 9 while the mother left...

    Mathematicians Chase Moonshine’s Shadow Researchers are on the trail of a mysterious connection between number theory, algebra and string theory. In 1978, the mathematician John McKay noticed what seemed like an odd coincidence. He had been studying the different ways of representing the structure of a mysterious entity called the monster group, a gargantuan algebraic object that, mathematicians believed, captured a new kind of symmetry. Mathematicians weren’t sure that the monster group actually existed, but they knew that if it did exist, it acted in special ways in particular dimensions, the first two of which were 1 and 196,883.McKay, of...

    Also revealing of the misery and desperation created by the Castro regime is Cuba's suicide rate, which reached 24 per thousand in 1986 -- making it double Latin America's average, making it triple Cuba's pre-Castro rate, making Cuban women the most suicidal in the world, and making death by suicide the primary cause of death for Cubans aged 15-48. At that point the Cuban government ceased publishing the statistics on the self-slaughter. The figures became state secrets. The implications seem to horrify even the government.[8] In 1958 Cuba had a higher standard of living than any Latin American country and...

    A group of marine biologists off the coast of Australia tagged a healthy great white shark. Then, a few months later, the tag washed ashore. When researchers analyzed data from the tag, they were confronted with a mystery that was deeply weird, and slightly terrifying. In this video, we learn what the researchers found on the tag. A few weeks after tagging, the shark appears to have been abruptly dragged down into a deep ocean trench, then eaten. The tag remained in the digestive system of the animal that ate it for several days. Whatever animal it was seemed...

We explained this scheme by banks to limit the amount of available for sale inventory as follows: "since the properties not entering the foreclosure pipeline are effectively kept out of inventory, even shadow inventory, and thus the distressed end market, the monthly drop in foreclosures has acted as a form of subsidy to...

    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...

When these eruptions reach Earth, they can interfere with electronic systems in satellites and those on the ground. Nasa said this solar explosion - known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) - was not directed at Earth, but it could pass several US spacecraft. The event on Monday was classified as an "X-class" flare - the most intense type - with a designation...

On March 18, President Obama explained his decision to mobilize the United States military for international intervention in Libya. “Left unchecked,” he said, “we have every reason to believe that Qaddafi would commit atrocities against his people. Many thousands could die. A humanitarian crisis would ensue. The entire region could be destabilized, endangering many of our allies and partners.” (As if it hasn’t been already?) That last sentence was a Realpolitik, national-interest justification for the U.S. intervention. But it rang hollow....

Indeed, the butterflies collected from younger generations have more abnormalities than butterflies born directly after the power plant began leaking radioactive particles into the environment. That means the genetic damage caused by the radiation leak has been inherited by subsequent generations. Above, you can see images taken from the study, published...

Thus, this is a good moment to look at the single best indicator of U.S. labor market health. As is so often the case, it is also one of the simplest: the employment-to-population ratio. In essence, this tells us what share of the working-age population (16-years old and above) has a job. When the ratio goes up, things are getting better. When it doesn’t, the labor market is not recovering. To know what kind of job...

    Remember when America was the world leader? Remember when it was America who would not sit idly by when outrageous evils were sanctioned by the collective negation of humanity (the UN)? Mugabe How low America has sunk under the fraud. Even the pathologically leftist NY Times has said that Mugabe should be tried for war crimes. And this just last week: President Robert Mugabe and his henchmen are accused of crimes against humanity, a British newspaper reported on Saturday, for among other things, "slowly hacking off the limbs and pulling out the teeth with pliers of his opposition's supporters. He...

    Residents in northern Namibia, on the southwest coast of Africa, have reported being terrorized by a bizarre dog-pig hybrid creature. The animal is said to be mostly white and unlike anything the villagers have ever seen, with a doglike head and the broad, round, nearly hairless back and shoulders of a giant pig. The beast was spotted chasing and attacking dogs, goats and other domestic animals in this arid region not far from the Kalahari desert. As often happens when rumors of monsters spread in rural areas around the world, some locals have taken extra safety precautions, such as traveling...

    A teenage girl has been left broken-hearted after her car was crushed by a man in a huge camouflaged truck. Norman Nowling, 40, from Fort Myers in Florida was arrested on Saturday after witnesses claimed he had deliberately driven over the 1994 Toyota Corolla several times. The incident occurred at the Redneck Yacht Club during the annual 'Swamp Cabbage Weekend', which sees 4,000 revellers in monster trucks and pickups speed around an 800-acre mud park for fun. The young woman had heard that a car had been crushed while she was at a mus pit with friends, and alerted security...

    A central Missouri teenager who confessed to strangling, cutting and stabbing a 9-year-old girl because she wanted to know how it felt to kill someone was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole. Bustamante was 15 years old when she confessed to strangling Elizabeth, repeatedly stabbing her in the chest and slicing the girl's throat. She led police to the shallow grave where she had concealed Elizabeth's body under a blanket of leaves in the woods behind their neighborhood. "I know words," she said, pausing to take a deep breath and struggling to compose herself, "can...

    Noticed that ugly Sheila Jackson-Lee (H-U-G-E version of Cynthia McKinny) got her usual place by the aisle (probaby trampled over a dozen people, punched some out, stomped toes, kicked them in the b@lls and left bloody bodies laying on the floor) so she could be seen talking like long time buddies to the POS. Wearing that bright outfit, she looked like a GIANT GREEN PUMPKIN.

    I don't see how one could come to any other conclusion when reading this piece from Mediaite about a confrontation between NRO's Rich Lowrey and the liberal pundit. The imbroglio erupted when Colmes said that Iowans would get off the Santorum bandwagon once they discovered some of the "crazy things" he's said and done. The segment was pegged to Santorum's polling surge in Iowa, which Colmes argued wouldn't last "once they get a load of some of the crazy things he's said and done, like taking his two-hour-old baby who died after childbirth and played with it
