  • Fed Employees Coordinate With Obama Officials To Thwart Trump Initiatives

    02/02/2017 8:01:46 AM PST · by rktman · 28 replies ^ | 2/1/2017 | Chris White
    Federal employees are working closely with former Obama administration officials to thwart future President Donald Trump’s policies and initiatives, according to a report published by The Washington Post. Federal workers regularly consult with Obama-era political appointees about ways they can push back and potentially stymie Trump’s initiatives, according to the report. Dozens of federal workers attended a support group last weekend for civil servants seeking a place to hash out their issues with the Trump administration. Nearly 200 or more federal employees, many of whom worked for the Obama administration, have signed up for workshops meant to train people in...

    A drunken mob of more than 20 thugs shouted "kill the Jews" as they stormed into a north London synagogue while young worshippers celebrated the end of the sabbath. The anti-Semitic abuse was hurled by the group of men and women as they first beat up a young man outside before chasing him inside, breaking windows and attacking others.
  • ‘A Conspiracy Of Silence’ – HSBC, The Guardian And The Defrauded British Public

    Media Lens ^ | 05 March 2015 | ???
    The corporate media have swiftly moved on from Peter Oborne's resignation as chief political commentator at the Telegraph and his revelations that the paper had committed 'a form of fraud' on its readers over its coverage of HSBC tax evasion. But investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed has delved deeper into the HSBC scandal, reporting the testimony of a whistleblower that reveals a 'conspiracy of silence' encompassing the media, regulators and law-enforcement agencies. Not least, Ahmed's work exposes the vanity of the Guardian's boast to be the world's 'leading liberal voice'. Last month, the corporate media, with one notable exception, devoted extensive...

    Telegraph View: We are proud to combine journalistic excellence with commercial success and we will continue to do so. This newspaper makes no apology for the way in which it has covered the HSBC group and the allegations of wrongdoing by its Swiss subsidiary, allegations that have been so enthusiastically promoted by the BBC, the Guardian and their ideological soulmates in the Labour Party. We have covered this matter as we do all others, according to our editorial judgment and informed by our values. Foremost among those values is a belief in free enterprise and free markets. We are proud...
  • Why I have resigned from the Telegraph

    02/18/2015 12:54:17 PM PST · by servo1969 · 36 replies ^ | 2-17-2015 | Peter Oborne
    Five years ago I was invited to become the chief political commentator of the Telegraph. It was a job I was very proud to accept. The Telegraph has long been the most important conservative-leaning newspaper in Britain, admired as much for its integrity as for its superb news coverage. When I joined the Telegraph had just broken the MPs’ expenses scandal, the most important political scoop of the 21st century. I was very conscious that I was joining a formidable tradition of political commentary. I spent my summer holiday before taking up my duties as columnist reading the essays of...

    Rochereau's books are arranged in neat piles on the mantelpiece, his collection of sabres hangs on a wall, and his bed is still covered by the same lace spread as when, nearly a century ago, he left home for the last time. A vial on the desk sports a label saying it contains "the earth of Flanders in which our dear child fell and which kept his remains for four years". On his bed the medals he was awarded for bravery, the croix de guerre and the Legion of Honour, are displayed in a glass case next to his képi...

    Last week, Breitbart News revealed a secret video game journalist mailing list used by a clique of influential writers, editors, and bloggers, some of whom attempted to bully their colleagues with it in an attempt to shape the news agenda for political purposes. We can today reveal the complete list of journalists, some 150 key industry figures, on the list. Outlets with representation span the entire video games journalism universe and include Polygon, Ars Technica, Wired, Eurogamer, Destructoid, Kotaku, Joystiq, TechRadar, and many other well-known brands in games publishing. But they also include freelancers and staffers for publications as solidly...

    1. Completed on March 31, 1889, the tower was the world’s tallest man-made structure for 41 years until the completion of the Chrysler Building in New York in 1930. 2. It is 324 metres tall (including antennas) and weighs 10,100 tonnes. 3. It was the tallest structure in France until the construction of a military transmitter in the town of Saissac in 1973. The Millau Viaduct, completed in 2004, is also taller, at 343 metres. 4. It is possible to climb to the top, but there are 1,665 steps. Most people take the lift. 5. The lifts travel a combined...

    Egypt's military strongman, Field Marshal Abdulfattah al-Sisi, has resigned as defence minister, paving the way for a run for the presidency and a return to the decades in which the country was led by long-serving military officers. Field Marshal Sisi summoned a meeting of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to hand in his formal notice and bring to an end his 18-month term, in which he shot from being a virtually unknown younger general to one of the Middle East's most powerful men. People walk past a poster featuring Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in downtown Cairo Photo: Mohamed Abd...

    The story so far: with the release of its Fifth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proved beyond reasonable doubt that it cannot be taken seriously. Here are a few reasons why: IPCC lead author Dr Richard Lindzen has accused it of having "sunk to a level of hilarious incoherence." Nigel Lawson has called it "not science but mumbo jumbo". The Global Warming Policy Foundation's Dr David Whitehouse has described the IPCC's panel as "evasive and inaccurate" in the way it tried dodge the key issue of the 15-year (at least) pause in global warming; Donna Laframboise...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The UK Telegraph asks today if I am editing the New York Times. Yes, they do. The UK Telegraph, that's the lead story in a big story. The New York Times, for some reason, has done a thorough expose on the Clinton Global Initiative. They have ripped the Clinton charity to shreds in the New York Times. I'm telling you, I don't want to make too big a deal out of any one of these things, but there are a lot of little, bitty things starting to align. Is Rush Limbaugh editing the New York Times?

    The drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol, found in red wine, an organic chemical believed to have an anti-aging effect, by boosting activity of a protein called SIRT1. GSK, the pharmaceutical firm, is testing them on people with particular medical conditions, namely Type II diabetes and psoriasis, a serious skin condition. David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard University, said aging might not actually be an "irreversible affliction". He said: “Now we are looking at whether there are benefits for those who are already healthy. "Things there are also looking promising. We're finding that aging isn't the irreversible affliction that...

    It's always a tricky thing to try and pinpoint the first of anything. The first working automobile, the first powered flight, the first beer of the night — all these things are usually surrounded by an impenetrable haze of uncertainty and occasionally, vomit. Often we can make some pretty decent guesses, but this time I feel pretty confident in making an out-and-out statement of what I think is fact: The first vehicles with on-board electrical communication systems were Civil War Telegraph Wagons. That means those battery-crammed wooden wagons are the direct ancestor of cars with radios, radiophones, car phones, all...

    My article last week about the radical Left’s defence of paedophilia in the 1970s provoked all manner of paroxysms from today’s Lefties. How dare I blacken the name of Hattie Harman by pointing out that she became legal officer for the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) soon after it campaigned for a more relaxed approach to sex with children? But I had private communications, too, from people who encountered the “libertarian” Left during those years. “In the late Sixties and early Seventies, I worked at a school operated by the Inner London Education Authority,” wrote a retired schoolteacher. “The...
  • Sun Causes Climate Change Shock

    If Michael Crichton had lived to write a follow-up to State of Fear, the plotline might well have gone like this: at a top secret, state of the art laboratory in Switzerland, scientists finally discover the true cause of “global warming”. It’s the sun, stupid. More specifically – as the Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark has long postulated – it’s the result of cosmic rays which act as a seed for cloud formation. The scientists working on the project are naturally euphoric: this is a major breakthrough which will not only overturn decades of misguided conjecture on so-called Man Made Global...
  • An obvious answer to our electric dreams

    You hardly need me to tell you that the only problem with electric cars is the treachery of their almost entirely useless batteries. Everything else about electric cars is pretty wonderful and we’ve known that electric is the way to go for more than a century. I like the idea of one; the smoothness, the futuristic whooshing noises and twinkling dashboard displays, the low maintenance, the mechanical simplicity. The internal combustion engine is a wonderful thing, but I suspect we love it for its foibles. Its gift of power is actually pretty feeble and fairly inflexible, so it needs gearing...
