HuffPo Hires NFL Player and
9/11 Truther as ‘Politics Fellow’
Cybercast News Service, by Curtis Kalin    Original Article

The Huffington Post has hired a new ‘politics fellow’ for their site, and lucky for HuffPo’s readers, his commentary will be backed up by zero experience covering politics or government. Former NFL Wide Receiver Donte’ Stallworth’s new position and focus on national security should be tempered by his previous statements on everything from American oppression of African Americans to conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Stallworth tweeted in 2009 that there was “NO WAY 9/11 was carried out by ‘dying’ Bin Laden, 19 men who couldn´t fly a damn kite.” NO WAY 9/11 was carried out by "dying"

Liberals like to think and talk about themselves as if they are the wave of the future. Note, for example, how Barack Obama and John Kerry have denounced Islamist terrorists and Vladimir Putin for behaving as if they are still in the “19th century.” On domestic policy, liberals see history as a story of progress from tiny government to ever-larger government — though never stating exactly how far that movement should go. Obama came to the nation’s attention in 2004 as a new figure, young and future-oriented. His successful 2008 campaign was seen as a drive for “hope and change.”

‘To Hell With the Constitution!’

In 1902 Theodore Roosevelt intervened in a strike by Pennsylvania coal miners, exceeding his Constitutional authority as president. When this was pointed out to him by Republican House whip James E. Watson, Roosevelt allegedly yelled, “To hell with the Constitution when the people want coal!” This outburst reflected the novel Progressive view of the Chief Executive. Instead of the Constitution’s limited powers focused on specific needs, such as national defense, beyond the capacity of the individual states or local governments to address, the President needed more expansive authority in order to serve the “people.” Over 100 years later, Barack Obama has

Pupils at a Welsh primary school were today left stunned when, of all people, Barack Obama and David Cameron walked into their classroom. Mr Obama greeted the smiling youngsters of Mount Pleasant Primary School in Welsh by saying ‘bore da’ - ‘good morning’. He then listened to a welcome message, thanking him for being the first serving US president to visit Wales. The road along Ruskin Avenue was faced by the sight of scores of police officers and the presidential convoy pulling up at the school gates. The president and Prime Minister were in Rogerstone, near Newport, ahead of the

Inside the Ring: Fears Rise Over Oil

U.S. intelligence agencies last month reported that a group of 22 Yemeni-Americans were training in Houston to be seamen on oil tankers, raising terrorism concerns over the unusual activity. The Department of Homeland Security issued an Aug. 26 report from its National Terrorism Advisory System about the case. “Reporting revealed that 22 students of Middle Eastern descent from Michigan and California were enrolled in recent maritime training courses in Houston, TX to obtain training, licensing, and/or mariner ratings during calendar year 2014,” the report said. “All students were naturalized U.S. citizens from Yemen.” The report said the U.S. government received confidential information

Today, U.S. Representative and Senate Candidate, Bill Cassidy M.D., announced receiving the endorsement of Dr. Ben Carson. “As a fellow physician, Dr. Carson knows first-hand that Obamacare cannot and will not work for patients,” said Dr. Cassidy. “Dr. Carson is doing the American people a great service not only by informing them of the damage that Obamacare is doing to our healthcare system, but by laying out positive alternatives. I have great respect for Dr. Carson’s medical work, and look forward to working with him to repeal and replace Obamacare with common-sense reforms to ensure that every American has access to

California authorities hunt albino

A potentially deadly albino cobra is slithering free in an upscale California suburb, and authorities are in a desperate search to find it before it bites someone. The hooded viper, possibly an escaped illegal pet, has already bitten a dog in the Thousand Oaks community, and the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control, which handles animal emergencies in nearby Ventura County, is warning people to keep their pets indoors and their doors closed until the snake is captured. The monocled cobra was described as "very dangerous and venomous" and, although it is not typically aggressive, it injects a

Despite filing papers with the Kansas secretary of State withdrawing from the Senate race late Wednesday, Democrat Chad Taylor may be stuck on the ballot this fall. Two election law statutes have raised questions about whether Taylor gave sufficient cause to remove himself from the ballot, and, if so, whether Democrats must ultimately choose a candidate to replace him. Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Clay Barker told The Hill that Taylor is now back on the secretary of State’s list of general election candidates, while a legal team analyzes the statutes. One statute declares that, except under specific circumstances, “no person who

Largely overlooked in the back and forth about what is being said and done (and not done) on the strategy for dealing with ISIS are the thoughts of the U.S. troops being deployed to Iraq. Rarely do we get a glimpse into their thoughts, but I received an email from a friend – a special operator who is in contact with his fellow soldiers who have been deployed to Iraq – that provides some insight. My friend said it would okay to pass along what he’s hearing anonymously: ‘I´m getting notes from the guys over in these operations centers in

TOPEKA The race for U.S. Senate in Kansas no longer has a Democrat in it. In a stunning development, candidate Chad Taylor asked Wednesday that his name be removed from the ballot, paving the way for independent candidate Greg Orman to face U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts head-on in November. “After much consideration and prolonged discussion with my supporters, my staff, and party leadership at every level, I have decided to end my campaign for the United States Senate,” Taylor said in an exclusive statement to The Eagle. “I have great love for the state of Kansas and the people that live here.

A ferry bound for Britain has been stormed by up to 250 illegal immigrants who tried to force their way on board the vessel at the French port of Calais. Witnesses said security staff were forced to turn a fire hose on the crowds as they attempted to overpower officials and machine-gun wielding police by climbing over fences and running up the main ramp into the ferry´s vehicle hold. The shocking incident took place yesterday afternoon, with P&O Ferries confirming that a ´huge intrusion´ had occurred. The news comes as the mayor of Calais threatened to blockade the port unless

Left wingers are willing to sacrifice the actual interests of the poor in service to their aspirations of political power. A perennial dream of the American progressives is to organize fast food workers into a union, a move that would be an absolute disaster for the intended beneficiaries. Today, a purported 150 cities will see fast food strikes, as MSNBC approvingly reports: Thousands of fast food workers across the United States were walking off the job Thursday morning, affecting restaurants in about 150 cities nationwide.

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough will become a permanent fixture on NBC’s Meet the Press as his colleague Chuck Todd takes over as the show’s new moderator, according to the New York Post. Citing unnamed sources, the Post reports Scarborough “is taking on a larger role within NBC News as a senior political analyst and would be one of the regular Sunday panelists.” Luke Russert, NBC News’s congressional correspondent, is also set to become a regular panelist on Meet the Press, according to the report. Luke is the son of Tim Russert, who moderated Meet the Press before his death

Why did the IRS clean out Lois

Congress had little opportunity to debate the Internal Revenue Service’s missing-e-mail controversy while on break during the past month, but lawmakers will have plenty to talk about when they return next week. One question likely to come up is why the IRS wiped out Lois Lerner’s Blackberry shortly after congressional staffers interviewed the then-IRS official about the agency’s suspected targeting of conservative groups. So far, the IRS has offered no answers. The issue came to light last month after U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the IRS to explain its efforts at recovering emails that were lost when

Infamous speed trap town Waldo

Waldo, Fla. — The north Florida town of Waldo has long had a reputation as a speed trap, and it´s no wonder. A small segment of highway that runs through Waldo requires drivers to speed up and slow down six times: 65 mph becomes 55 mph; 55 becomes 45; then goes back to 55; then back down to 45; to 55 again and eventually, 35 mph. AAA named the tiny town between Jacksonville and Gainesville one of only two "traffic traps" nationwide and even placed an attention-getting billboard outside the limits of the town to warn drivers to slow down before

LAS VEGAS — Hillary Clinton’s speech at a clean-energy summit Thursday will allow her to do two things that could help her run for president in 2016: embrace an audience of influential progressive activists and green-industry leaders, while paying tribute to Nevada Democratic kingmaker Harry Reid. At the same time, the controlled format seems tailor-made for avoiding troublesome questions on issues like the Keystone XL pipeline — as well any repeats of the recent flaps in which she criticized President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and spoke about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House. No media interviews are scheduled

When Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted last month on two felony charges stemming from how he dealt with a misbehaving Democratic state official, the image of the stuttering 2012 Republican primary challenger was replaced with that of a hero-cowboy in the eyes of many conservatives. Perry was under attack from the left wing, and his response was not to apologize but to walk through a hail of blue-hued bullets and emerge laughing, without a mark on him. But some conservative true believers have begun to notice something rather suspicious: The company Perry keeps seems more suited to a mainstream

“The South,” professor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Garry Wills wrote last year in the New York Review of Books, is “the distillation point for all the fugitive extremisms of our time. … It is the home of lost causes and nostalgic lunacy. It is as if the whole continent were tipped upward, so that the scattered crazinesses might slide down to the bottom.” Unfortunately for Mr. Wills, a startling number of his countrymen are apparently scattered crazies. Many Americans, reports show, are moving southward, fleeing liberal states, high taxes, and, most likely, snooty professors. Every few months, like clockwork, a

For someone who entered America´s national life as a bright man who was a Real Good Talker, Barack Obama has slid precipitously, not just in the polls but in public perceptions. Of course, he would never admit it; in fact, he would never comprehend it. But this continuing decline is, in large part, his own fault. Like cake, Obama wants his rhetoric and credibility too.

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

One day after the Islamic State in Iraq and al Sham (ISIS) released a video showing the brutal beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff--the second American journalist ISIS has decapitated on video--Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech saying that Islam is a “peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings,” and that ISIS is not “the real face of Islam.” “I want to take advantage of this podium and of this moment to underscore as powerfully as I know how, that the face of Islam is not the butchers who killed Steven Sotloff. That’s ISIL,” Kerry said

At a round-table discussion on women´s issues in Milwaukee on Wednesday, Debbie Wasserman Schultz ridiculed Gov Scott Walker´s gender policies, saying he gives ´women the back of his hand´. Walker is currently in the middle of heated re-election against Democratic candidate Mary Burke.

After announcing that America “will not be intimidated” by the Islamic State – a bizarre statement from the most powerful man on the planet about a terrorist group he called “jayvee” just a few months ago – Obama explained that America could make ISIS a “manageable problem” if it could mobilize the “international community.” “We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISILl´s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point

The son of daredevil billionaire Richard Branson had to be rescued by helicopter from the top of the Matterhorn after a death-defying adventure in the Swiss Alps went awry. Sam Branson scaled the 14,692-foot-high peak Wednesday as part of the Virgin Strive fund-raising challenge, but he became disoriented as he started his descent. His father, founder of the Virgin Group, witnessed the terrifying event. “By the time Sam completed the challenge and reached the summit, he hardly knew where he was,” Richard Branson said on his Web site. “He had a blinding headache and could only briefly look up and take in the
