Duck Dynasty launch their own line of guns
as Phil hatches plot to move his family to
rival TV network after A&E bosses

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson may have emerged victorious from his recent spat with A&E, but the millionaire patriarch is already plotting revenge on the TV network behind his hit show and reportedly has a plan in the works to move his family - plus millions of dollars of advertising and merchandise revenue - to another broadcaster. Humiliated by A&E’s recent attempt to silence his conservative religious message, Robertson - whose Duck Commander business is worth an estimated $15 million - is secretly plotting to form his own TV production company so he can jump ship to a Christian channel more in

Journalists Tingle as Bill de Blasio´s
Inaugurated in New York City
With a ´Progressive Jamboree´
Newsbusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/2/2014 6:01:42 PM     Post Reply
The inauguration of unreconstructed liberal Bill de Blasio as New York’s newest mayor excited liberals hoping for a return to pre-Clinton times...and yet there were the Clintons, seeming to endorse the whole thing. In Thursday’s Washington Post, columnist Melinda Henneberger wrote on page A-2 that the event was “not just a progressive jamboree but a 90-minute pummeling of outgoing mayor Michael Bloomberg, who looked glum in the front row of the VIP guests who faced the crowd.” The socialist flag was flying, and Harry Belafonte was on the set list: First, from a lectern that seemed more like a pulpit, one speaker

Men Are Obsolete

How do I know men are finished? I’ll read you a quote that says it all: “Yes. There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor.” Toronto’s mayor, a shining example of modern manhood is what I would call the canary in the coal mine, only he’s not quite as delicate as the canary. Because, you know, He’s got “more than enough to eat at home.” Are men literally obsolete? Of course not, and if we had to prove that we could never win. For one thing, we haven’t figured out a way to harvest sperm without them being,

Today’s “I, Claudius” Dictators
National Review Online, by Michael Auslin    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/2/2014 5:11:59 PM     Post Reply
The New Republic is out with an armchair psychological analysis of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, calling it an “intimate profile of Syria’s mass murderer.” It’s the usual my-dad-was-a-dictator-but-I-wanted-to-marry-a-nice-Jewish-girl story about a shy misfit child who was thrust into the family killing business when his older brother immolated himself in a car accident. The real insight from the article is the “I, Claudius” twist: Bashar has been routinely misunderestimated his whole life, both as a child, a newbie dictator, and the ruthless wager of a civil war in which he unleashed chemical weapons on his own people, and that is why

A Few Words About

RUSH: I do want to say some words about Bob Grant. Bob Grant was the first to popularize conservative talk radio, and he did it in New York City on WABC and on WOR. Everybody in talk radio had heard of Bob Grant. He was legendary. He was courageous, confrontational. He was all of those adjectives, and he was funny. He was also a nice guy. I´ll tell you something about Bob Grant. There was a roast for him -- oh, I guess in 1990 or something -- and I was on my way back from a Rush to Excellence

ERIE, Colo. — The Colorado-based firearms accessories manufacturer that threatened to leave the state if more-restrictive gun legislation was passed is finally making good on its threat more than nine months after the new gun laws went into effect. In a press release issued on Thursday, Magpul Industries CEO Richard Fitzpatrick said his company, which currently employs 250 people in Colorado, will be relocating its shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyo. and its company headquarters to an undisclosed location in Texas. The company said it is still deciding between three possible North Central Texas locations for its headquarters, and that the

Mark Obama Ndesandjo said he was surprised to hear his half-brother President Barack Obama say they had only recently met for the first time. “I was floored by it — I don’t know why he said it,” Ndesandjo said to Laura Ingraham, adding that he had met the president several times over the years and still isn’t sure what his motivation was for making the claim. “I think he was being president and was not being my brother,” Ndesandjo said. From their first meeting, which took place in the 1980s in Kenya, where he lived as an American ex-pat, Ndesandjo? said both

RUSH: The global warming crew, this is so classic. I just love it. They´re going down to Antarctica -- the South Pole, for those of you in Rio Linda -- and they´re gonna prove that there´s so much global warming that there isn´t any ice, or very little ice, that it´s melting. It´s a cruise. And they get stuck in the ice far, far away from their intended destination. So icebreakers are called in. The icebreakers get stuck! There was a ChiCom icebreaker that got stuck. They needed all these fossil-fuel, gigantic ships to rescue them after a week. And

Defining Immigration Deviancy Down

The ruling that an unlawful immigrant can be admitted to the practice of law in California is the kind of thing that will light up talk-show switchboards, and rightly so. But beyond the Bizarro World nature of the decision is a broader issue. This is only the latest in a series of measures by some jurisdictions to normalize illegal immigration — giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses; issuing them ersatz Social Security numbers (called Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers or ITINs) by the IRS to enable them to file tax returns and open bank accounts; barring police departments from cooperating with immigration authorities

RUSH: Every cable news network is going wall-to-wall with the blizzard that´s gonna hit Chicago and the Northeast -- Boston and New York -- and they´re all talking about record cold temperatures, record amounts of snowfall for this date and for this time of year. "Record cold! Record cold!" Not one of them -- not one! Maybe Fox is, but it´s even rare there. Hardly any of them are contrasting it to all of the news they have broadcast about global warming, about all of the advocacy they at cable news networks have engaged in for global warming. And why?

SACRAMENTO, Calif.- After a troubled rollout, President Barack Obama´s health care overhaul now faces its most personal test: How will it work as people seek care under its new mandates? Most major pieces of the Affordable Care Act take full effect with the new year. That means people who had been denied coverage because of a pre-existing medical condition can book appointments and get prescriptions. Caps on yearly out-of-pocket medical expenses will mean people shouldn´t have to worry about bankruptcy after treatment for a catastrophic illness or injury. And all new insurance policies must offer a minimum level of essential benefits,

Fiat to buy full control of Chrysler

NEW YORK -U.S. automaker Chrysler will become fully owned by Italy´s Fiat under terms of an agreement announced Wednesday that also involves the United Auto Workers union. The agreement comes more than 4-1/2 years after the Obama administration brought Fiat in to keep Chrysler in business as part of a packaged bankruptcy proceeding. In a statement, Fiat said it has agreed to pay $3.65 billion for the 41.46% of Chrysler it doesn´t already own from the UAW´s medical benefits trust for retirees. Fiat shares gained nearly 13% in Milan early Thursday to trade at €6.70, their highest level since July

NSA seeks to build quantum computer

In room-size metal boxes, secure against electromagnetic leaks, the National Security Agency is racing to build a computer that could break nearly every kind of encryption used to protect banking, medical, business and government records around the world. According to documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the effort to build “a cryptologically useful quantum computer” — a machine exponentially faster than classical computers — is part of a $79.7 million research program titled, “Penetrating Hard Targets.” Much of the work is hosted under classified contracts at a laboratory in College Park. The development of a quantum computer has

World´s climate warming

As the planet marked its fourth hottest year on record, a study published in the journal Nature found increasing levels of carbon dioxide will lead to thinner ocean clouds and reduce their cooling impact, causing temperature rises of at least 5.6F (3C) over the course of the century. The team of scientists said the findings show some climate models have been too “optimistic” and previous estimates of a minimum temperature rise of only 2.7F (1.5C) could now be discounted. The optimistic models did not properly assess the impact of water evaporation, which sometimes rises only a short distance into the atmosphere

This is in compliance with the terms of the Social Security Act, signed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, August 14, 1935. The deduction begins with 1%,

Just days after the Chinese rover Jade Rabbit settled down on the moon, China is setting out to bolster its presence in another remote place: Antarctica. Chinese state media said on Thursday that construction workers are en route to the future site of China’s fourth Antarctic research station, after a pit stop at one of its other bases. The new station will be a hub for climate change science – as well as a possible linchpin in China’s effort to ensure for itself a voice in future negotiations about Antarctica’s valuable natural resources, analysts say. China is a relative latecomer to

Special forces in Iraq are fighting jihadist militants who have reportedly taken over swathes of two cities. The clashes with Sunni fighters from the al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) are taking place in Fallujah and Ramadi. Both cities are in the province of Anbar where Sunni militant activity has been on the rise. Meanwhile at least 23 people were reportedly killed in militant attacks elsewhere in Iraq. Sunni Arabs in Iraq claim they have been targeted and politically marginalised by the Shia-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a charge the prime minister denies.

Drones that can choose to deviate from a set mission and hunt in ‘swarms’ could be patrolling skies within the next 25 years, according to a new roadmap. Unmanned aircraft carrying stronger chemical weapons could also be on the horizon, the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) revealed in its Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap. While the document sets out plans for unmanned maritime, land and air vehicles, there is a lot of focus on the future capability of controversial drones, which, if the plans come to fruition, could deviate from mission commands set by humans if they spot a better target.

GPs are threatening to refuse to see patients passed on to them by NHS 111 call centre staff. They say they do not have time for more patients and will not be told what to do by helpline staff who are not medically trained. NHS medical director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh announced plans in November to beef up the helpline to ensure patients can see or speak to a doctor quickly to take pressure off A&E units. He wants call centre staff to book patients for an appointment at their surgery or out-of-hours clinic or arrange for a GP to

Michael Moore is not happy with ObamaCare. The liberal documentary filmmaker marked the Jan. 1 launch of coverage under the Affordable Care Act with a scathing op-ed that declared: "ObamaCare is awful." This, he wrote in The New York Times, is the "dirty little secret many liberals have avoided saying out loud for fear of aiding the president´s enemies." Moore´s problems with the law, though, naturally are different than the complaints from Republican critics. Moore continues to back a single-payer, government-run system and argues that the current one is too favorable to the insurance industry. "I believe Obamacare´s rocky start -- clueless planning, a lousy

MINNEAPOLIS – Some deliciously underdressed women will be bringing new meaning to the term “iceberg lettuce” on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis this Thursday afternoon. The two ladies will be wearing bikinis made from the vegetable, and yes, they’ll be wearing them outside during a day when the high temperature is expected to stall out at zero degrees. The “Lettuce Ladies” will be braving the cold temperatures on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). They will be holding signs urging people to celebrate a new year by “turning over a new leaf” and going vegan.
