Do any US papers ever print series of photos like the Mail does, seemingly all the time? If so, I haven´t heard of it. Thanks to the Mail for all the good pics, week after week. And thanks to the those who post them.

If something isn´t done soon to tamp down the Muzzies, that ring around Tehran may soon be the result of an Israeli nuke.

That ring is what remains of Ghale Morghi Airport. After the Iranian Revolution all the private aircraft were confiscated and are now in parts or destroyed by vandals. There are ongoing protests by students of the planned destruction of the remaining hangers where the remains of several aircraft are stored. There is a park of sorts on the perimeter. I´m surprised it´s still lighted at night. I expect in the next few years Iran will look like it´s evil twin, North Korea.

It is breath taking from a certain point of view.

Yes, again, the British media runs circles around our US lapdogs who spend all their time contriving how they can make Zippy the god of all humanity.

I don´t particularly like the Daily Mail, in that they do have some sloppy writing and fact-checking, but at least it is usually the most mediocre of stories - i.e., celebrities - so I can overlook that. (Who cares if they had Liz Taylor´s marriage count a little off?). But, good heavens, they have the best scope of coverage...and they aren´t the only ones. Tons of videos, photos galore..and subject matter just never, ever touched by US media filters. We have Pravda of old here, and they run 24/7 keeping Zippy happy. It´s extremely obvious.

Former US president joins
opposition to Keystone XL
Houston Chronicle, by Jennifer A. Dlouhy    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Obama: Russia doesn´t

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016. Mr. Perry, who began serving as governor in December 2000 and who leaves office in January 2015

9/11 Victim Families: Obama
Administration Sabotaging Trials

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Today’s IRS Documents:
What Do They Show?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

MSNBC Panel Hits ´Offensive´

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC: AL SHARPTON:

Sarah Palin to Headline SHE-PAC
Iowa Rally for Joni Ernst
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 9:25:33 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
