  • New Yorker Magazine: ‘GOP Is Poised for a Blowout’

    Republican insiders believe “the GOP Is Poised for a Blowout,” according to the New Yorker, a very pro-establishment magazine. The GOP is leading because Democrat strategists spent much of the election season touting the issues favored by the very liberal bloc of college-credentialled white women, according to the November 4 article, which quoted a GOP strategist saying:
  • Newsmax Beats Fox in Key Ratings, Trump Rally Draws 3+ Million Viewers

    Newsmax ^ | Today | By Bill Hoffmann
    Donald Trump's super-charged return to the political stage over the weekend was a ratings smash for Newsmax, which trounced Fox News in key ratings. According to Nielsen, 1.9 million cable viewers tuned into Newsmax to watch the network's coverage of the former president's rally Saturday in Wellington, Ohio. Newsmax estimates another 1.3 million viewers watched through free streaming devices, bringing Newsmax's total viewership over 3 million. Fox News did not air the President's rally live. Newsmax's Nielsen ratings success is even more astounding considering Newsmax is carried in about 30 million less U.S. cable homes than Fox. Still, in a...
  • Nancy Pelosi: ‘Honor System’ Is Not Sufficient to Believe ‘Someone Is Vaccinated’

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday she believes the “honor system” is not sufficient to know if “someone is vaccinated.” While explaining the dangers of being unvaccinated while serving as a member in the House, despite her mask wearing rules and vaccination, Pelosi rhetorically asked, “What is this, the honor system?” She continued, “The honor system, as to whether someone has been vaccinated? Do you want them breathing in your face on the strength of their honor?”

    by Samantha Foster If Nancy Pelosi thought SalonGate couldn't possibly extend into a THIRD day, she was very much mistaken. As outrage continues to grow nationwide over her outrageous hypocrisy in getting a "blowout" at a San Francisco salon without a mask -- when all salons in the city are closed, now protests have hit home -- literally. Protesting hair stylists held a hair dryer protest outside of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home after she was caught on video breaking the rules to get her hair blown dry while she demanded other women stay home, due to the "pandemic."

  • Five things about that double GOP congressional blowout in North Carolina

    In the swing state of North Carolina, it was happy-dance time for the beleaguered Republicans. Two hotly contested congressional races both went solidly into the GOP camp, helping the Republicans in the crazies-run House. State Sen. Dan Bishop won in the 9th district, and Greg Murphy won in the 3rd district and both will now get the opportunity to tell Reps. Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that they are out to lunch. It was a conservative blowout. Five thing stick out about it now:

    A WNBC/WSJ/Marist poll released April 15 shows Trump with 54 percent support of Republican primary voters. Ohio Gov. John Kasich is in second place with 21 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz with 18 percent. ABC News political analyst Matt Dowd said that it seems pretty clear that Trump is going to win the state, and he could stand to pick up a sizable amount of the state's 95 delegates. "If he picks up north of 75 [delegates], he has a real path to 1,237," Dowd said, referring to the number of delegates a Republican...
  • Results Show How Donald Trump Can Win Majority of Delegates (DUH ALERT)

    New York Times ^ | 03/16/2016 | Nate Cohn
    Despite his loss in Ohio, Mr. Trump is positioned to make a serious run at earning an outright majority of delegates and avoid a contested convention. His success in winner-take-all Florida — worth 99 delegates — was enough to push Marco Rubio out of the race. The consequences of the departure are not too significant: Mr. Rubio was already reduced to around 10 percent of the vote, or maybe less, by the time he lost his home state, Florida, by a 19-percentage-point margin. It was the scale of Mr. Trump’s win that was impressive and telling. He won 46 percent...

    Fuel Fix ^ | July 25, 2013 | Emily Pickrell and Zain Shauk
    Natural gas stopped flowing from a runaway well in the Gulf of Mexico after sediment in the well blocked the uncontrolled flow, federal authorities reported Thursday. The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said the well “bridged over,” meaning small pieces of sediment and sand flowed into the well path, restricting the flow and countering the pressure. A fire that had engulfed a portion of the Hercules 265 jack-up rig was put out early Thursday morning, according to a Coast Guard report to Congress. “They are lucky,” said Bud Danenberger, a consultant and former chief of offshore regulatory programs at...

    A blowout preventer may have ignited the fire that caused a Gulf of Mexico rig to partially collapse Wednesday, after a natural gas well blew out, federal authorities reported. A leak in the natural gas well, owned by Walter Oil & Gas, ignited a fire on a jack-up rig operated by Hercules Offshore late Tuesday night, hours after its 44 workers had been evacuated, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The blowout preventer has since collapsed and isolated the fire,reducing the danger of a fire on the remainder of the jack-up rig but making a top kill...

    The infamous Cliff which Dear Leader has been driving us off of for the last three and a half years, is finally on fire. No amount of masochistic national groveling Barry displays to the "Muslim world" can atone for our infidel status. Yet Barry and his media droolers will not open their eyes to the fact that murders, rapists, thieves and liars are the heart and soul of Islam. But, if a winking alliance with Islam is what it takes for the left to transform America into a really hip Marxist paradise... oh well. The Cliff is reportedly 41 miles...

  • Oil Spill Commission Finds Tests Warned of BP's Well Before Blowout

    10/28/2010 12:41:17 PM PDT · by topher · 8 replies ^ | October 28, 2010 | Associated Press
    WASHINGTON -- Tests performed before the deadly blowout of BP's oil well in the Gulf of Mexico should have raised doubts about the cement used to seal the well, but the company and its cementing contractor used it anyway, investigators with the president's oil spill commission said Thursday. It's the first finding from the commission looking into the causes of the April 20 explosion that killed 11 workers and led to the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. And it appears to conflict with statements made by Halliburton Co., which has said tests showed the cement mix was stable....

    I was promised an earth-shattering ka-doom! Well, not really. And the spew is not, in fact, funny. But what's even less funny is the number of people who have come completely unhinged with their "imminent death of everything and everyone" nonsense. Let's go down the list of the some of the better ones: Everyone who worked on the Exxon Valdez spill is dead (or alternatively, that across the entire population of those who worked on the Valdez spill, the average age of death is 51.) Really? Can you source that?
