FDA found more than smallpox
vials in storage room
Washington Post, by Brady Dennis & Lena H. Sun    Original Article

Federal officials found more than just long-forgotten smallpox samples recently in a storage room on the National Institutes for Health campus in Bethesda, Md. The discovery included 12 boxes and 327 vials holding an array of pathogens, including the virus behind the tropical disease dengue and the bacteria that can cause spotted fever, according to the Food and Drug Administration, which oversees the lab in question. “The fact that these materials were not discovered until now is unacceptable,” Karen Midthun, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), told reporters Wednesday. “We take this matter very seriously, and

Border Chaos Changes
Election Year Politics

In a Gallup poll released Tuesday, the percentage of Americans who say that immigration is the nation’s most important problem reached 17 percent, the highest level in eight years and the second-highest ever recorded by that polling organization. It’s easy to scoff at the fickleness of the American public, taking a long-term problem such as immigration (legal or otherwise) from rating as most important by 5 percent of the population to 17 percent of the population in just a few weeks, notwithstanding the images of young unaccompanied children flooding into Texas. After all, border security and immigration didn’t suddenly become three

The collapse of a cease-fire plan for Israel and Hamas would be a moment to test the Jewish state’s super-weapon — Caroline Glick. Or, more precisely, her idea of a one-state plan for peace in the Middle East. Glick laid out the plan in a book called “The Israeli Solution.” Her idea, which I wrote about in March, is to absorb into a single state — Israel — all of the West Bank and the Arab and Jewish populations who live there. It’s as controversial as an idea can get. She leaves aside Gaza, where there is no Israeli presence and which

Jose Antonio Vargas: The
Face of the Entitled Illegal Alien
Creators Syndicate, by Michelle Malkin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/17/2014 4:44:41 AM     Post Reply
They´ve blown it again, big time. They just can´t help themselves. During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza ("The Race") militancy, desecrated American flags and Che Guevara shirt-wearing, fist-thrusting marches across the country. Left-wing public relations consultants taught the amnesty mob to tone it down, turn the flags right-side up and stop threatening Reconquista. But the phony red-white-and-blue dye job didn´t last. The movement´s true extremist, entitled roots can´t be concealed for long. On Monday, leading illegal-alien journalist turned activist Jose Antonio Vargas engaged

Think fighting fires is dangerous? Try doing it in a war zone. Spurred by the violence in Israel, a dozen firefighters and emergency responders from across the United States have deployed to the embattled country, where they are supporting their Middle East colleagues on the front lines as part of the Emergency Volunteers Project. Speaking by phone from Sderot, Israel, near where residents perched on hillsides to watch missiles streak toward the Gaza Strip, Rockville resident Robert Katz said his decision to drop everything and fly halfway around the world was easy. “I’ve been doing fire and rescue since I

FBI warns driverless cars could

Google’s driverless car may remain a prototype, but the FBI believes the “game changing” vehicle could revolutionise high-speed car chases within a matter of years. The report also warned that autonomous cars may be used as "lethal weapons". In an unclassified but restricted report obtained by the Guardian under a public records request, the FBI predicts that autonomous cars “will have a high impact on transforming what both law enforcement and its adversaries can operationally do with a car.” In a section called Multitasking, the report notes that “bad actors will be able to conduct tasks that require use of

Sen. Elizabeth Warren now says that last year’s government shutdown was about birth control. Warren did not make the remark in an off-the-cuff setting. She made it in a prepared speech. Warren said it on the floor of the Senate while supporting a bill that she knows has absolutely zero chance of becoming law. “Remember last year’s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?” Warren asked. “That fight started with a GOP effort to hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control.” Warren is

  


  

White House: By the way, we’re

Gotta hand it to ‘em: They’re all-in on the immigration mega-pander. The prudent thing to do before the midterms would be to focus on stopping the border crisis, to “prove” that Obama’s serious about enforcement before a new push at comprehensive reform next year, and then do some sort of very limited amnesty to show immigration activists that O’s on their side with the promise of more to come after the current uproar has quieted down. Instead you’ve got Harry Reid mumbling about the border being secure, Pelosi doing her “won’t somebody think of the children?” shtick, and now Obama’s inner

Congress nears an impasse

With House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., shooting down a bipartisan bill to address the crisis of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border Wednesday, it looks increasingly likely Congress might wind up at an impasse just before their five-week summer recess. Until now, Pelosi had said that potential changes to a 2008 law that prevents speedy deportations of unaccompanied children from countries other than Mexico and Canada was not a "deal breaker" for Democrats. That´s what two Texas lawmakers, Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, are aiming to do with their bill that would mandate the same

I never thought my Afghan translator would save my life by killing two Taliban fighters who were about to kill me. Janis did just that. I´m here today because he had my back in a way I only thought an American soldier would. On April 28, 2008, I found myself in the worst ambush of my life -- surrounded by 45 Taliban fighters, out of grenades, and running low on bullets. We had been fighting nonstop for an hour. A mortar round landed within a few meters of my position and sent me flying into a ditch. Coming into to consciousness

Alleged Mexican Drug Cartel Thugs
Accused of Kidnapping American ´Courier´

A kidnapping and ransom case in the Carolinas suggests just how active Mexican drug cartels have become in the U.S. Today, authorities identified three purported members of a Mexican drug cartel as the alleged kidnappers of a South Carolina man last week, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District of Court of South Carolina. The American hostage, who authorities said was drug courier for the cartel, apparently was kidnapped on July 9 and held for ransom, with demands for as much as $400,000 coming from unknown cartel members in Mexico. After nearly a week in captivity, the hostage was found chained

Faux Outrage and a
Real Threat to Liberty

The left has ardently objected to the Hobby Lobby decision, allegedly due to concern about women’s access to healthcare. However, their recent actions have forced people to wonder: are some of the critics more concerned with providing women with free contraceptives or with demonizing religious adherents and promoting a political narrative about a “war on women”? The evidence increasingly suggests the latter. Instead of seeking compromises that would further their objectives, some liberals have proposed extreme anti-liberty legislation that has no chance of becoming law and have manufactured controversies to allow them to continue demonizing their adversaries. In response to the

Even as president-elect Obama in 2008 was forming what seemed to be a centrist cabinet, the far left cleaved to the theory that Obama was a stealth leftist radical whose real agenda was their dream agenda: redress the income inequalities of the capitalist system, empower women and minorities, cripple the fossil fuel industry, and open borders and subordination of American sovereignty to the UN. Leftists like former Weatherman Mark Rudd, pal of Tom Hayden (Hanoi Jane’s mentor) and Bill Ayers former Weather Underground bomber and sometime mentor of Obama, cleaved to the theory that Obama would “feint right move left.” The

Twenty years ago, 300 House Republican candidates stunned Democrats with its Contract With America. This brief, clear document committed those who signed on to do several specific things if voters gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives, a body that Democrats had controlled for the prior four decades. Eight of the promises in the Contract With America were internal changes in the operation of the House of Representatives, and the House fulfilled them. The other part of this document promised to bring to floor votes within 100 days ten substantive bills that the Democrat leadership of the House had kept

They agreed with a landowner to park 14 caravans there until Tuesday, according to Gino Debroux, the Landen mayor. "Since then, they´ve said they won´t leave and they´re there with 30 caravans," Mr Debroux told Reuters by telephone. "This is an industrial site and is not designed for camping." He said the group´s refusal to leave had led him to hire a DJ to play music from Wednesday morning, starting around 9 a.m.

A Seattle man caused $60,000 in damage after using a homemade blowtorch to try to kill a spider in his rental home on Tuesday night. The 24-year-old, who lived in the house with his mother, had used a can of spray paint and a lighter to try to chase the spider from a laundry room, but the fire quickly took hold. The man, who has not been named, tried to douse the flames with water but it soon spread to the attic. No one was injured in the blaze, although the spider is believed to have perished.

Wind turbine fires ´ten times more

Wind turbines may catch on fire ten times more often than is publicly reported, putting nearby properties at risk and casting doubt on their green credentials, researchers have warned. [Snip] An average of 11.7 such fires are reported globally each year, by media, campaign groups and other publicly-available sources, but this is likely to represent just the “tip of the iceberg”. There could in fact be 117 turbine fires each year, it argues, based on analysis showing just 10pc of all wind farm accidents are typically reported. Fires tend to be “catastrophic”, leading to turbines worth more than £2 million

He said “My inclination is to remember what happened when a ship full of Jewish children tried to come to the United States in 1939 and the United States turned them away, and many of them went to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps.” Patrick discussed the political debate about deportation or allowing the children to stay and said, “I think we are a bigger-hearted people than that as

Democratic donors are outspending Republicans by more than 50% in the closest-fought Senate races, according to a Guardian analysis of the latest campaign finance disclosures that reveal a surge of money flooding into key battleground states. More than $42m has been raised so far this year by Democratic campaigns in just 10 states that are seen as crucial in determining whether the party holds on to control of the Senate in November´s midterm elections. And although a number of more liberal senators are currently pushing for a constitutional amendment that would somewhat curb the growing dominance of money over US politics, disclosures

RUSH: The government wants to establish talking shopping carts so that food stamp recipients will be directed to healthier foods in the grocery store. And if they end up buying the government-approved amount of healthy foods, they could win free movie tickets. I kid you not. They want to install talking shopping carts in grocery stores for food stamp users. (interruption) Well, Michelle´s voice would probably be a good idea. I don´t know whose voice, but it probably would be Moochelle´s voice. In fact, it´s a USDA suggestion. "The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is suggesting major changes to grocery stores."

But the words were no less scary to politicians less than a year from President Kennedy´s assassination. The establishment Republicans, then known as Rockefeller Republicans, played the same

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those
