  • If not Hillary Clinton, then Sarah Palin for 2016, poll shows

    03/31/2014 10:05:28 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 49 replies ^ | 03-31-2014 | By Cheryl K. Chumley
    When it comes to women in the White House, Sarah Palin takes the cake in Americans’ eyes, a new poll found. The Economist/YouGov poll asked participants which female candidate — other than Hillary Clinton — they’d like to see run for the high office. Mrs. Palin won 9 percent of the vote, Breitbart reported. She was followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, at 8 percent each. Almost two-thirds of respondents said America was more than ready to elect a woman to president.

    Military radar evidence suggests the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner was deliberately flown west toward the Indian Ocean’s Andaman Islands, sources told Reuters on Friday as mounting evidence pointed to a criminal inquiry into Flight MH370. Two sources told Reuters that an unidentified aircraft – believed by investigators to be the missing Boeing 777 - was following a route between navigational way-points, indicating it was being flown by someone with aviation training when it was last plotted on military radar off the country's northwest coast.

    Guns Turned In at Phoenix Event Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will be having two gun turn in events in the next two months.   One on Saturday, March 15th,  and another at a second location on Saturday, April  12th.  While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term "buyback" the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them.  The rewards at this event: $100 for handguns, $75 for shotguns and rifles and $150 for "automatic weapons".  There is no limit to how many guns an individual may turn in.  The organizers want the guns to be...
  • Off Grid Attack: EPA To Outlaw Many Wood Burning Stoves

    Off Grid Survival ^ | Jan 7 | Rob Richardson
    Our ever so helpful government has decided that your wood burning stove is now a danger to the world. In another attempt to outlaw the off grid lifestyle, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the same agency that was recently caught using drones to spy on Americans, is now going after home owners who use Wood Burning Stoves to heat their homes. Shortly after the re-election of President Obama, the agency announced new radical environmental regulations that threaten to effect people who live off the grid. The EPA’s new environmental regulations reduce the amount of airborne fine-particle matter from 15 micrograms...

    The Beaufort Observer ^ | September 14, 2013
    Not only was Kay Hagan for it before she was against it, she was one of handful of senators that got ObamaCare passed before she had even read it all. Now she is trying to position herself as opposed to a critical part of ObamaCare…who decides who will get what medical care. Jon Ham, writing at Rights Angles show how dishonest Hagan is being about her role in ObamaCare: N.C. Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan enthusiastically supported Obamacare and bragged about helping craft it. And when it came up for a vote in the Senate on Christmas Eve of 2009, she...

  • Analyst: End of Bundled Cable Will Kill Over 80 Channels (CNN, MSNBC, and MTV included in 80)

    With streaming television becoming more and more popular, and providers like Aereo making an end-run around cable and satellite providers, a lot of attention is being paid to the future of bundled cable. In a world of growing choices and a weak, jobless economy, how long can something last that charges customers a ton of money for dozens of channels they never watch? Bundled cable is, in my opinion, one of the greatest hustles ever perpetuated against the American people. The worst part is how it works as a kind of affirmative-action program for left-wing programming that likely wouldn’t survive...

    CBN News ^ | 5 Aug 13 | CBN
    Senators, representatives, and their top aides will be able to stay under the current subsidized health care system. That means they will continue to get a taxpayer-funded contribution to help pay for their health care premiums. A last-minute deal worked out before Congress went on their five-week summer vacation gets lawmakers out of the original language of Obamacare, which said members and their aides had to use its health care plans. Republicans like Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana slammed the move, calling it a "behind-closed-doors deal, announced right after Congress is safely away from the crime scene." "This is exactly...

    Filing papers at the Circuit County Clerk’s Office can be a boring, and tedious task, but one young attorney, Thais Alvarez, observed something quite out of the ordinary that made that day’s filing anything but mundane. What sparked her interest was an elect “Obama 2012” bumper sticker, clearly visible hanging on the wall behind the protective glass window in bold view. The election had long passed. Ms. Alvarez wanted to know why the Circuit Clerk’s Office of Broward County, Florida was allowing an employee to display their personal political bumper sticker?

    City Journal ^ | STEVEN MALANGA
    Maria Pappas, the treasurer of Cook County, Illinois, got tired of being asked why local taxes kept rising. Betting that the answer involved the debt that state and local governments were accumulating, she began a quest to figure out how much county residents owed. It wasn’t easy. In some jurisdictions, officials said that they didn’t know; in others, they stonewalled. Pappas’s first report, issued in 2010, estimated the total state and local debt at $56 billion for the county’s 5.6 million residents. Two years later, after further investigation, the figure had risen to a frightening $140 billion, shocking residents and...

    <p>To adapt H.L. Mencken, nobody ever went broke underestimating the cynicism and self-dealing of the American political class. Witness their ad-libbed decision, at the 11th hour and on the basis of no legal authority, to create a special exemption for themselves from the ObamaCare health coverage that everybody else is mandated to buy.</p>

    For the past few months, members of Congress and their staffs have been discussing behind closed doors the worrying proposition that they will be forced off their popular health insurance program and onto the federal insurance exchanges set up under Obamacare. Those concerns reached a fevered pitch this week as President Obama, while making a rare visit to Capitol Hill, assured lawmakers that they and their staffs wouldn’t be foisted onto the same health exchange as millions of Americans. Then late last night, news broke that Obama had “solved” the problem, although no details were available. Obama and many in...

    A Palestinian jihadist group, Masada al Mujahideen, recently claimed credit for ongoing wildfires in Arizona in a statement posted to jihadist forums today. The statement, titled "Masada al-Mujahideen Fulfilled its Promise and Attacked America Again After the Expiration of the Period with Fires that Achieved Historic Results," was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group. "We had previously announced an unconventional war against the occupation state of Israel, and then we escalated this war to reach its main supporter, America, so that it receives a major share of it, which will destroy their flora and fauna, with permission from...

    LONDON: Prince William, second-in-line to the throne, will be first British king with proven Indian ancestry, DNA analysis has revealed. The DNA analysis of saliva samples taken from the Duke of Cambridge's relatives have established a direct lineage between the 30-year-old prince and an Indian housekeeper on his mother Princess Diana's side. It is his only non-European DNA and means he will become the first head of the Commonwealth with a clear genetic link to its most populous nation - India. William is now likely to be encouraged to make his debut mission to India soon after the birth of...

    On Friday, Bloomberg’s Francis Wilkinson predicted that “Benghazi will be Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Whitewater.” Considering her long history of scandals – and the litany of subsequent excuses and denials she sent spinning to absolve herself of any fault -- Examiner predicted Thursday that “Benghazi could prove to be a real "corkscrew landing" under "sniper fire" for Clinton in 2016.” “In case you have any lingering doubt about the true agenda of House Republicans” in Wednesday's Benghazi hearing, check out these numbers,” Jed Lewison fretted Thursday for the uber-liberal blog site, Daily Kos. 15: Number of times President Barack Obama was...

    Just my opinion, but this -- hands down -- was the best speech of Friday's Leadership Forum segment of the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting in Houston. And I say this as a long time Sarah Palin supporter and a strong Ted Cruz supporter. Their speeches were very good. This one was even better. The judge starts at a slow pace, but by the end of her address, she's raising the roof.

    Russia Today ^ | 25 Januray 2013
    US Federal Reserve is reporting a major deposit withdrawal from the nation’s bank accounts. The financial system has not seen such a massive fund outflow since 9/11 attacks. The first week of January 2013 has seen $114 billion withdrawn from 25 of the US’ biggest banks, pushing deposits down to $5.37 trillion, according to the US Fed. Financial analysts suggest it could be down to the Transaction Account Guarantee insurance program coming to an end on December 31 last year and clients moving their money that is no longer insured by the government. The program was introduced in the wake...
