  • Crying Sailors, Climate Change and Draft our Daughters – Another Stellar Week for the Pentagon

    US Defense Watch ^ | February 10, 2016 | Ray Starmann
    It’s been another spectacular week for the Pentagon. From US Navy sailors crying in front of their Iranian captors to Pentagon climate change mandates and the Draft our Daughters bill proposed by Congressman Duncan Hunter, the US military is being tossed to and fro inside a White House snow globe. Our new best friend forever, Iran, released several pictures yesterday of an unidentified US Navy sailor bawling his head off like a overweight woman confessing her cookie eating disorder to Marie Osmond and Oprah. Seated next to the crying sailor was his commander, the Once and Future Chief of Naval...
  • Who is Donald Trump [interesting read]

    "Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald Trump?" The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment? Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only." They know there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates. Ben Carson is not an "establishment" candidate, but the...
  • Oh Oh... (Ted Cruz and dual citizenship)

    The Market Ticker ^ | 02/08/2016 | Karl Denninger
    There's a clean question on the table regarding dual citizenship for persons born in Canada prior to 1977 (when they changed their law to officially recognize dual nationality.) Prior to that date, with few exceptions, you could not hold dual nationality with Canada. In other words the very act of "renouncing" Canadian Citizenship means that Cruz never held US citizenship at birth because his parents had to declare his nationality at the time he was born. There may be exceptions that were available at the time but the law now is immaterial. The only material fact is what the law...
  • Technology and the 2016 election: Ted Cruz's secret weapon?

    Fox News Opinion ^ | February 10, 2016 | John Stossel
    Politicians tailor their messages to different audiences. Facing New Hampshire's primary, Ted Cruz talked more about "free-market principles" and a "commitment to the Constitution" and said "no one personality can right the wrongs done by Washington." Politico ran the headline "Ted Cruz, born-again libertarian." I'm skeptical. Campaigning in Iowa, Cruz had emphasized religion and social conservatism. But politicians no longer just target voters state-by-state -- they target by person. Last election, President Obama beat Mitt Romney partly by doing just that. Obama had 50 people working in data analytics. Romney had four....

    US President Barack Obama has signed into law an initiative aimed at bringing electricity to 50 million people in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020. The Electrify Africa Act of 2015 will give legal backing to Mr Obama's flagship Power Africa scheme, which is trying to improve access to electricity through public-private partnerships. It took nearly two years to be passed in both houses of the US Congress. About two-thirds of people in Africa do not have access to reliable power....

And the truth is, Barack Obama doesn't seek to destroy the nation he leads, he seeks to "fundamentally transform" it. Splitting hairs you might say, but...

    When running for office, Gov. Rick Snyder said he would sign a bill repealing the exemption of the governor, lieutenant governor, legislators and other executive officers and employees from Michigan's Freedom of Information Act. He may get a chance, as two lawmakers, one Republican and one Democrat, are jointly planning to introduce bills that would make the governor and Legislature subject to FOIA. Rep. Ed McBroom, R-Vulcan, and Rep. Jeremy Moss, D-Southfield, say they’ll introduce the legislation within roughly six weeks. Dating back to its inception in 1976, Michigan’s FOIA law has included an exemption for the governor as well...

    An OPEC production cut is unlikely until U.S. production declines by about another million barrels per day (mmbpd). OPEC won’t cut because it would accomplish nothing beyond a short-term increase in price. Carefully placed comments by OPEC and Russian oil ministers about the possibility of production cuts achieve almost the same price increase as an actual cut.

    Ouch Yesterday, a half hour before her defeat in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a three-page memo. It was designed to reassure the Hillary-faithful that, despite her impending loss, she was still a viable candidate. It had the opposite effect on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: “Hillary Clinton had the Democratic Party establishment. She still has their endorsements, but he has out-raised her in January. He now will have a ton of money on those online contributions in February, and the Clinton team anticipated this with this three-page memo.”

    As the Republican primary process heads south, with the next stop in South Carolina, an important factor will be lurking just below the surface: The Democrat voters’ thirst for free stuff now, free stuff tomorrow and free stuff forever. The support for Comrade Bernie Sanders among young people, who by definition have always been pampered and paid for, shows a lop-sided tilt toward the lure of something for nothing. A final pre-New Hampshire survey among 18 to 30 year olds showed nearly 90% backed Sanders, a man who has promised everything with little mention of how these “goodies” would be...

Bernie Sanders, who took last night’s New Hampshire Primary by storm, grandly concludes that his primary victory shows people want ‘Real Change’. Hello? Bernie? The ‘Real Change’ people got from Obama back in 2008 is all but killing off their country. The commonsense l conclusion with incoming Democrats is that one Democrat is EXACTLY the same as any and all of the others.

    My good friend, Rush Limbaugh, is willing to give Marco Rubio grace for possibly making a “mistake” with the Gang of Eight amnesty deal. Rush explained recently that Rubio is no moderate – calling him a “legitimate, full-throated conservative.” I disagree. Rubio is indeed squishy on the No. 1 issue in the 2016 race – immigration. When even Jeb Bush criticizes his amnesty scam, you know he cannot be the Republican nominee – not no way, not no how. Not this year, which many agree, may be the last chance for American politics to get it right.

I noticed that the signs were not of the required dimensions, so they are likely not enforceable in a court of law. But police, like fire in the quote attributed to President Washington, (employed in various forms since the 1500's) are "dangerous servants and a fearful master". I tread lightly around police, just as I do around high explosives or high powered machinery....

    Hey Trumpsters/Breitbart/Drudge...talking to you here: How the hellcan you continue to support such a fowl-mouthed, disingenuous boor like Donald Trump? For President of the United States of America...? There is nothing so d__n special about him that compels you-or anybody-to put up with this kind of language, tone, and monumental dishonesty. He's not a conservative, he's not a good Christian, and he's obviously not even a good role model... the televised, public rallies could be rated R. Donald Trump has absolutely no right to talk and act like this- the guy is simply way out of line. What kind...

    Ted Cruz knows that you are the best hope for saving America. But to do that you need a president willing to get the government out of the way so that you can. "... just like the left, Donald Trump's solutions are all built on the "smarts" of certain gifted people and then empowering those people to navigate the world for the masses. By contrast Ted Cruz' campaign is built on the strength of a set of ideas, where rights, power and responsibility belong to every citizen, not just the gifted few. This is the self-governing model our nation was...

    California officials say the state overpaid at least $700,000 to state employees last month and the government is working to get the money back. The Sacramento Bee reports about 20,000 state employees got too much money in their paycheck -- ranging from $37 to $101 per employee. State Controller's Office spokesman John Hill says the mistake was limited to workers covered by two unions, including 12,689 employees in the California Correctional Peace Officers Association and "about 7,000" workers in the International Union of Operating Engineers Bargaining Unit 12. ...

  • Gloria Steinem puts the Feminist Movement to death

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    As the 2016 presidential race starts to heat up it is time to take a look at the remaining serious candidates and what each one might mean for energy policies and energy companies in the U.S. While a lot can happen in the next couple of months, the current leaders for the Republican Party are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. For the Democrats, the race will likely come down to a long brawl between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. As a bonus, it’s also worth looking at what Michael Bloomberg might do for energy if he enters the...
