Jill Abramson Faces Accusations of
Plagiarism in New Book ‘Merchants of Truth’

Variety, by Erin Nyren

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/7/2019 6:20:47 AM

UPDATED: Former executive editor of the New York Times Jill Abramson took to Twitter to acknowledge the accusations of plagiarism in her new book “Merchants of Truth” that emerged Wednesday. “I take seriously the issues raised,” she continued in a follow-up tweet, “and will review the passages in question.” Abramson also addressed the alleged inaccuracies regarding Vice News that some have posed: “The attacks on my book from some @vicenews reflect their unhappiness with what I consider a balance portrayal.”

Comments:
I have long despised Jill Abramson for her decades long crusade against Justice Clarence Thomas. Karma is sweet.

OLATHE, Kan.—Soon after Jim Hildenbrand arrived in Avignon Villa Homes, a community for older adults in a Kansas City suburb, the homeowner association disputed the placement of his satellite dish. It cited him for parking cars in his driveway overnight and placing a St. Francis statue in a flower bed. He was later written up for a dead cat in a window well—which Mr. Hildenbrand suspects was planted by a neighborhood enemy. Things went downhill from there. After he installed a decorative, shin-high wall around a plant bed on the side of his house,

California Has the Jobs but Not Enough Homes

SAN FRANCISCO—California’s economy is adding jobs far faster than affordable places to live, forcing some employers to leave the state as they expand. Companies that move from California have historically left behind its diverse industries, renowned public universities and balmy climate for states with lower taxes and lighter regulation. But now home prices and rents, higher on average than anywhere else in the country, have surged to the top of concerns for businesses and workers. For employers, “we’re at a crisis stage,”

Trump gets a U.S. Supreme Court
victory on immigration detention

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the U.S. government’s authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime - potentially even years - after they have completed prison terms for criminal convictions, handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues hardline immigration policies. The court ruled 5-4 along ideological lines, with its conservative justices in the majority and its liberal justices dissenting, that federal authorities could pick up such immigrants and place them into indefinite detention anytime, not just immediately after they finish prison sentences.

The Jew Who Died for Ilhan Omar

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota, has become widely known for her attacks on supporters of Israel. Ms. Omar is a naturalized citizen whose Somali refugee family settled in the U.S. when she was a teenager. Tens of thousands of Somali refugees relocated to the U.S.—some 25,000 in the Minneapolis area—to escape the starvation, famine and civil war that turned Somalia into a lawless, failed state in the early 1990s. Another name is worth recognition and remembrance, especially among Somali refugees: Lawrence Freedman.

The Temptation of the Devils River

It has long been a mystery how, exactly, the Devils River got its name—and what, exactly, happened to the apostrophe. But the leading theory will ring true to anyone who has attempted to navigate it. Though early Spanish explorers named the river after Saint Peter, it’s said that the settlers who followed in their footsteps regarded the waterway and its surrounding terrain as so forbidding that they thought it could have been carved by Lucifer himself. And so the gatekeeper to heaven gave way to the ruler of hell. Given that grim reputation, that off-putting name, and the river’s remote

There are just nine steps from freedom
to socialism to societal breakdown
Fox News, by Tom Becarro    Original Article

Talk of socialism is suddenly everywhere. The journey from a free society to socialism, however, does not occur overnight. It’s a stepped process that begins slowly and ends with a rush. Here are those steps: Step 1. Massive Government Spending. Socialist states have government at the center of their economies and feature enormous spending programs. In early 1990s Sweden often cited as a socialist state, government spending exceeded 70 percent of its economy. Under President Jefferson, government spending was approximately 2 to 3 percent of the economy. Today, we are at 36 percent. Sweden, now walking away from socialism,

Do Democrats Hear Echoes of 1972 Today?
Wall Street Journal, by Gerald F. Seib    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/12/2019 9:10:37     Post Reply
The scenario sounds familiar: Democrats, facing a Republican presidential candidate widely reviled among the party’s rank-and-file, nominate a seemingly safe establishment figure to keep their hold on the White House. To the party’s shock and horror, their establishment figure loses the general election. The reviled Republican becomes president. The party’s liberal activists seethe at the loss, arguing that their party’s establishment centrists stole the nomination at their convention and then failed to produce. In reaction, they push the party to the left and, four years later, propel a decidedly liberal candidate to the nomination.

The Democratic Crackup

Americans love a good political brawl, and that’s terrible news for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her Democratic Party has commenced a full throw-down—with itself. Few things have benefited Democrats more in the past few years than the Donald Trump show. The president likes to be the center of attention, and the media likes nothing more than to oblige him. This dynamic helped make the 2018 election a referendum on the man himself rather than his policies, and that made Mrs. Pelosi speaker of the House. Democrats envisioned the same dynamic helping them win the White House in 2020.

The Army´s killer drones: How a secretive
special ops unit decimated ISIS
Yahoo News, by Sean D. Naylor    Original Article

As the Islamic State’s physical caliphate shrinks to nothing after an almost five-year campaign led by U.S. special operations forces, military insiders say one small unit has killed more of the extremists than any other: the company of Gray Eagle drones in the Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Although the military has thrown a cloak of secrecy over its operations, the unit — officially called E (or “Echo”) Company of the regiment’s Second Battalion and established less than a decade ago — is increasingly being lauded in special operations and Army aviation circles. “They are doing the most killing of anyone

FORT MYERS, Fla.—It’s no secret that baseball’s grip on the collective imagination of the country has slipped. Football is the national sport now. Basketball is king with the social-media generation. Though America’s pastime isn’t dying, the long-term trend lines are worrisome. But against all odds, there is a player in the Upper Midwest who is capable of healing what ails the game. His name is Willians Astudillo, and he is here to save baseball. Astudillo is a 27-year-old rookie who toiled in the minors for a decade. He might not make the Minnesota Twins’ 25-man roster

Pork Rinds Graduate From
Gas Station to Gourmet

A buzzy snack is popping up in supermarkets across the country alongside kale chips and quinoa puffs: pork rinds. Even longtime fans might not recognize their new place in the foodie food chain. New brands are seeking to transcend the rind’s reputation as a greasy gas-station staple by using premium ingredients like humanely raised pork and Himalayan pink salt. If that’s not enough to provoke a serious case of cognitive dissonance, there are even vegan alternatives.

John McCain (R-AZ), whom Romney described as “heroic,” “courageous,” “patriotic,” and “honorable.” “I can’t understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God,” Romney tweeted.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling on all advertisers to drop Fox News until the network fires hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson due to comments by both hosts that the civil rights group called “Islamophobic.” “Fox News must clearly state that Jeanine Pirro will not be allowed back on the air after her long history of Islamophobic hate rhetoric and the network must also take similar action against other Islamophobic hosts like Tucker Carlson,” CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. “All existing advertisers should drop their ads on Fox News to ensure that

I am excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience. The 2020 presidential election is a consequential moment in American democracy. Everything we believe in as Americans will be examined and, in essence, ratified by our votes. But it concerns me, as it does the majority of good Americans, that our national debate has become hostile and disrespectful. We no longer simply agree to disagree. Too often we demonize the intentions

HB 604 would amend Chapter 1 of Title 35 of the Official Code of Georgia so that "any male 55 years of age or older shall immediately report to the county sheriff or local law enforcement agency when such male releases sperm from his testicles."

McCain said, “I think if I had told my dad seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it was hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well. Do not feel bad for me and my family. We are blessed.” “We are a family of privilege,” she continued. “Feel bad for people out there who are

A new report on 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s marriage to real estate heiress Amy Sanders O’Rourke reveals the former Texas congressman indulged in some bizarre cuisine following his failed U.S. Senate bid in Texas. O’Rourke, who in January launched a five-state road trip across the Southwest, found himself eating dirt told to possess “regenerative powers” during one stop in New Mexico, according to the Washington Post. The newspaper said he also brought some of the dirt back home to Texas for the family to eat, as well. The strange antidote is one of several unflattering details to have

She did this after she was asked by moderator Jake Tapper what role faith plays in her life.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said she believes it is time for Mississippi to disavow its Confederate icons — namely on its state flag. "I would support removing Confederate celebrations from federal lands and putting them in museums where they belong," Warren said at a CNN townhall in Jackson, Mississippi, on Monday evening. Asked if she believes the state should adopt a new flag, Warren had a short answer. "Yes," she said to an applauding crowd. Mississippi´s flag, which features a confederate battle emblem, has been a source of controversy. The flag from 1894 has been accused of
