Palin to House GOP: Don´t Be ´Wusses´
During Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/3/2012 7:46:19 PM

Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said the country has already gone over the fiscal cliff and House Republicans should not go “wobbly” or be “wusses” during the fiscal cliff negotiations with Democrats and the White House. On Fox News’ “On The Record" Saturday, Palin said that since the House “holds the purse strings," Republican leaders do not have to “capitulate” to President Barack Obama, who Palin claimed was trying to continue his failed socialist policies to achieve a “fairytale utopia.” She said the House could attempt to defund programs that contribute

Comments:
Sarah Palin, my political "Joan of Arc," states to the GOP House what Boehner should know. As the majority, WE control the funding.

Sarah Palin is a voice of reason in an unreasonable country. She is the proverbial voice in the wilderness.

It´s easy to shout from the sidelines.
Why doesn´t Palin run for the House and put her money where her mouth is ?
If this was coming from Allan West , he´s walked the walk and is entitled to weigh in.

Because she exerts a lot more influence in Senate races from where she now sits. And besides, it was pretty clear nobody was going to listen to her as long as the Nicolle Wallaces and the people who love them roam the earth.

Remarkable detective work provides final
clue to whereabouts of missing flight
Xinhua News Agency [China], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2014 11:11:08 PM     Post Reply
London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Cairo - An Egyptian court has sentenced 529 people to death in the largest capital punishment case on record in Egypt, judicial authorities said Monday. The alleged supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi were convicted on charges of killing a single police officer, the attempted murder of two other officers, and attacking a police station in the Nile Valley city of Minya in August. Sixteen people were acquitted. The mass sentencing underscored the severity of an ongoing campaign by Egypt’s military-backed leaders to silence opposition, eight months after a military coup ousted Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected

Oregon facility to export natural gas

The Energy Department gave conditional approval on Monday to an Oregon-based facility to export liquefied natural gas, in a move hailed by the energy industry and congressional lawmakers who want the U.S. to step up gas exports to counter Russian influence. "Given the situation in Ukraine, this license sends a positive signal to our allies and to energy markets that the United States is ready to join the growing global gas trade," Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said in a statement. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for weeks have been pressing the Obama administration to expedite permits for natural gas exports,

Transnistria, the breakaway region of

Moscow - When the commander of NATO forces in Europe said Sunday that he was worried about Russian troops moving across Ukraine to Transnistria, he was talking about a sliver of land that has existed largely outside the international system and outside the law for the past 22 years. (Snip) Transnistria broke away from Moldova almost as soon as the Soviet Union collapsed at the end of 1991 – and has maintained itself as a Russian-speaking enclave ever since. Many ethnic Russians and Ukrainians lived primarily in the more industrial eastern parts of the former Soviet republic and they wanted no part of the new Moldova.

5 Former Madoff Aides
Found Guilty of Fraud
New York Times, by Rachel Abrams    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2014 6:05:36 PM     Post Reply
A federal jury on Monday found five associates of the convicted swindler Bernard L. Madoff guilty on 31 counts of aiding one of the largest Ponzi schemes in history. The case centered around whether or not the employees had committed securities fraud and other deceptive acts to knowingly mislead auditors and investors in Madoff Securities. The trial in the United States District Court in Manhattan went on for more than five months, making it one of the longest white-collar trials in recent memory. The five aides each face decades in prison, although the judge will be able to use her discretion in sentencing. “I’d be very surprised if a federal judge

Unmasking the junk science
behind the #BanBossy campaign
Washington Examiner [DC], by Ashe Schow    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2014 5:40:25 PM     Post Reply
“Ban Bossy,” a new feminist campaign started by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, uses ancient surveys and misleading facts to claim the word “bossy” hurts girls. And, as you might expect, the claims don’t support the campaign’s mission. Claim 1: “By middle school, girls are 25 percent less likely than boys to say they like taking the lead.” This study was conducted between 1992 and 1997, so it´s already out of date. The study found when students were asked if they “like to take the lead when a group does things together” 72 percent of sixth-grade boys reported yes, versus 54 percent of sixth-grade girls.

Patience is in short supply these days. Despite our instant communication capabilities, just about everyone is waiting for something. (Snip) “In June 2009, Asia was involved in an argument with a group of Muslim women with whom she had been harvesting berries, after the other women became angry at her for drinking the same water as them. She was subsequently accused of insulting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, a charge she denies, and was arrested and imprisoned. In November 2010, a Sheikhupura judge sentenced her to death. If executed, Asia would be the first woman in Pakistan to be lawfully killed for blasphemy.”

Deepwater Horizon oil left
once-speedy fish unfit to catch prey
Washington Post, by Darryl Fears    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2014 5:04:53 PM     Post Reply
Oil that spewed from BP’s Deepwater Horizon spill caused heart deformities in embryos and young tuna in the Gulf of Mexico, potentially slowing some of the fastest swimmers in the ocean, and impeding their ability to catch prey and survive, a new study has found. The implications to the ecosystem and the commercial fishery are stark, said the authors of the study, led by the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. The April 2010 spill occurred when tuna were in the area to spawn. Millions of embryos were affected at the most sensitive time of life, when they are so fragile it is possible to see through them.

New York Times reporter James Risen has been in a years-long legal battle against the government to reveal one of his confidential sources, even petitioning the Supreme Court to hear his case. He’s been very critical of President Obama‘s administration for its “aggressive use of the powers of the government to try to rein in independent national security reporting,” and in a recent journalism forum, Risen took another shot at the White House for being an enemy of press freedom. In fact, Risen went so far as to say the current administration is one of the biggest threats to such freedoms in a while: [Risen] opened the conference earlier by

Glenn Beck panned the new film Noah last Friday, but over the weekend he saw the movie to see if it was better than the reviews said. Beck came out of that experience bewildered at some of the creative license in the film and how Noah was portrayed as a “homicidal maniac.” Someone at Paramount reached out to Beck and invited him to watch the movie, but Beck found it hard to contain his shock as the film unfolded, even giggling at parts involving the “rock people” sent by God to help out Noah. Beck credited the movie for not being the climate change propaganda some reviews made it out to be, but aside from that, he said,

President Obama has ordered a sharp increase in U.S. Special Operations forces deployed to Uganda and sent U.S. military aircraft there for the first time in the ongoing effort to hunt down warlord Joseph Kony across a broad swath of central Africa. The CV-22 Osprey aircraft will arrive in Uganda by midweek, along with refueling aircraft and about 150 Air Force Special Operations forces and other airmen to fly and maintain the planes, according to Amanda Dory, deputy assistant secretary of defense for African affairs. At least four Ospreys will be deployed. The White House began to notify Congress, under the War Powers Act,

Former President Jimmy Carter (D) says he thinks the National Security Agency might be monitoring his emails. In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Carter said he sends messages to foreign leaders via snail mail instead. “As a matter of fact, you know, I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it,” he said “because I believe if I sent an e-mail, it will be monitored.” Asked what he thinks of the NSA’s surveillance programs, Carter said they've been “extremely liberalized” and have

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act.
