  • How three enterprising Chechen ladies took ISIS for $3,300

    07/31/2015 12:29:16 PM PDT · by Marcus · 3 replies
    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 31, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    Yahoo Travel reported on Wednesday that three women in Chechnya took ISIS for $3,300 before getting caught. They are now under investigation for Internet fraud, which seems to be illegal even when committed against the most fearsome terrorist army in modern times. The scam seems to be a combination of the Nigerian Prince con, in which a mark is fooled into giving the con artist large sums of money and catfishing, in which the mark strikes up an online romance with someone he thinks is an attractive woman (or man depending on the gender and preference of the mark.)
  • Debt Slaves: 7 Out Of 10 Americans Believe That Debt ‘Is A Necessity In Their Lives’

    EAD ^ | 07/31/2015 | Michael Snyder
    Could you live without debt? Most Americans say that they cannot. According to a brand new Pew survey, approximately 7 out of every 10 Americans believe that “debt is a necessity in their lives”, and approximately 8 out of every 10 Americans actually have debt right now. Most of us like to think that “someday” we will get out of the hole and quit being debt slaves, but very few of us ever actually accomplish this. That is because the entire system is designed to trap us in debt before we even get out into the “real world” and keep...
  • If The American Dream Is To Own A Home, Then It Hasn’t Been In Worse Shape Since 1967

    EAD ^ | 07/30/2015 | Michael Snyder
    Thanks to the “Obama recovery”, the rate of homeownership in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in 48 years. The percentage of Americans that own a home is widely considered to be a key indicator of the health of the middle class, and we have just learned that during the second quarter of 2015 that number dropped from 63.7 percent to 63.4 percent. It is now the lowest that it has been since 1967. Unlike a lot of other government economic statistics, this one is fairly difficult to manipulate. Either someone owns a home or they do...

This petite Georgia blond with a commanding presence and the charisma and intellect to match, looks like she would fit elegantly at the head of a boardroom. You certainly don’t envision this refined, vibrant woman with a sweet Southern drawl to be out enthusiastically hunting lost persons, getting dirty, crawling through rubble, or chasing down fugitives by moonlight. Yet that is exactly what she has been doing with her K9 partners for over 20 years, gracefully shattering...

During that period she had obtained the firearms and a concealed carry permit.  North Carolina requires an 8 hour course, including live fire, and an $80 non-refundable fee to obtain a permit.  From abc7chicago.com: Green...

This isn't the first attempt to grant "human" status to chimps: last year a judge threw out a similar request for a chimp named Tommy.  But the worst part isn't the fact that self-hating humans keep trying to elevate soulless primates and give them equal status with lawyers--it's the judge's reaction.  State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe wrote this: "Efforts to extend legal rights to chimpanzees are thus understandable; some day they may even...

I say ‘tourist attraction’ instead of 'beloved lion’ because that hackneyed phrase seems to me a concept empty of meaning. How can a lion be wild and be 'beloved’ by people who saw him once from a safari jeep? You don’t earn the right to 'love’ a lion that way. Cecil was a wild lion who was habituated to humans, collared for a biology study,...

But it’s not just dwellers of those metropolitan areas who are having a hard time paying the rent. According to a report out this week from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, more than half of renters in America are considered to be financially burdened by their rent, meaning that they spend more than 30 percent of their income just on where they live.

The embattled jail complex, which has been beset with scandal over poor treatment of inmates and calls to shut it down, gets its name from the family of Abraham Rycken, a Dutch immigrant who settled in New York in the 1600s, according to the New York Historical Society. Jacob Morris, director of the Harlem Historical Society, recently started a petition to rename the embattled jail complex due to family member Richard Riker's history of helping send blacks into...

The first half of each of those sentences reflects the way the people of Russia increasingly see their county’s military—noble, fierce and worthy of high praise. The second half of each reflects the view many Americans have toward the United States military. This dichotomy between the two reveals...

These sticks were about 3 feet long and had large spikes protruding all the way around. They were meant to be used as a stop-gap measure when a suspect was fleeing in a vehicle. If an officer could get into position, the sticks were to be thrown in front of the tires as the car passed by. The weight of the car would bear down on the spikes, deflating the tires and ideally ending the chase safely. If I said everyone...

But, the swap appears imminent and if approved will relegate the M16 to a support role. It follows a similar shift already underway in the Army.

    During the 1980 presidential campaign, Reagan cultivated a following of disaffected Democrats, known as “Reagan Democrats.”  The cross-over vote almost certainly helped Reagan crush Jimmy Carter at the polls.  Now, Jeb Bush is developing his own cadre of “Bush Democrats” but this crop sports more than just blue politics—their attraction to Bush is because of blue blood. Jeb Bush smells like money.  The scent emanates from him like a perfume, and it attracts the rich, establishment types from both parties in the same way Reagan attracted blue-collar workers to his cause.  This is all the more ironic and remarkable since...

    Chris Rock summed up the black experience in the United States kind of perfectly during his HBO special Never Scared more than a decade ago: “If you’re black, you got to look at America a little bit different,” he joked, stone-faced. “You got to look at America like the uncle who paid for you to go to college but who molested you.” Since then, that “generous” uncle has moved from molesting to killing, with the list of victims growing by the day: the Charleston 9. Freddie Gray. Michael Brown. Rekia Boyd. Eric Garner. Tamir Rice. John Crawford III. Yuvette Henderson....

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)A US property tycoon has proposed what he calls a "radical solution" to the world's crisis of refugees who have nowhere to call home: simply create a new country for them to live in. Jason Buzi, a millionaire Israeli businessman living in San Francisco, believes that a new island could be created to house all of the world's millions of refugees. His 'Refugee Nation' project suggests creating a brand new country "which any refugee, from anywhere in the world, can call home" - perhaps by taking over an existing country without many people or building a new island in the...

  • LESBIANS ARE THE ‘REAL EMBODIMENT OF CATHOLIC TEACHING’ – CNN HOST MICHAEL SMERCONISH

    “Bill Donahue of the Catholic League was invited onto the Smerconish show on CNN in order to defend a decision by a private Catholic school to fire a teacher who had revealed herself to be gay and in a gay marriage. Halfway through the interview, Michael Smerconish affirms the lesbians’ view that they are the ‘real embodiment’ of Catholic teaching. Cuz that makes a lot of sense. Of course, people who get their understanding of Christian doctrine from making fun of televangelists while smoking pot in college and from snarky criticisms on the Daily Show aren’t the best scholars when...
  • Gender Confusion Is Not Biological

    Even biologists are confused about gender confusion. One thing they know from science: it is not biological.A study at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles resulted in a politically-incorrect conclusion: transgender identity is not due to hormone imbalance.“We’ve now put to rest the residual belief that transgender experience is a result of a hormone imbalance,” said Dr. Johanna Olson, of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “It’s not.”Olson and her colleagues found that transgender youth have sex hormone levels consistent with the gender they were assigned at birth. So, a transgender youth who is assigned a female gender at birth, usually...

    Just a little more about the call for a “Constitutional Convention,” or a “Convention of States,” as it is now being called. They just gave it a new name to make you think it is an exercise by the various states. It isn’t. And here is why. The authorization for calling a “convention,” or “meeting” for the purpose of changing the Constitution of the United States is found in Article V. It is very short. Only one paragraph. In fact, it is only one sentence! Here it is, in its entirety. Article V The Congress, whenever two thirds of both...
