U.S. military sends mystery
space drone back into orbit -
but they STILL won´t tell
anyone what its mission will be

Daily Mail (UK), by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/12/2012 9:07:03 AM

The U.S. military launched its highly secretive unmanned $1 billion X-37B space plane into orbit today from Cape Canaveral on top of an Atlas V rocket. The U.S. Air Force which operates the small, top-secret version of the space shuttle still will not say how long the third X-37B mission will last, nor what the vehicle will be doing in orbit. Cloud coverage in the area had threatened to scupper today´s launch, but the skies cleared sufficiently for the classified mission to take-off on time at 1.03 p.m from the Florida space center.

Uh, because it´s on a classified mission and it´s nobody´s business? Not everything needs to be public knowledge...

The news here is that, apparently, the U.S. defense and intelligence organs can actually keep a secret. It´s remarkable this hasn´t been blown in a Wikileaks posting or a front page expose in the NYT.

Sarah Palin rips media’s focus

Politico, by Lucy McCalmont    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/28/2014 4:46:57 PM     Post Reply
Sarah Palin is slamming the media for its “ridiculous overkill” coverage of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s news conference on Friday. “Talk about ridiculous overkill. This Chris Christy [sic] press conference is the epitome of local politics, but you’re taking this live and covering City Hall like it’s Armageddon,” Palin wrote in a post published to her Facebook page. “Priorities, media… your priorities are so revealing,” she added. Friday’s news conference was Christie’s first since January, when he addressed “Bridgegate” at length for the record. All three major cable news outlets picked up the hourlong conference on Friday afternoon for

   

 

  


 
Sen. Cruz and Rep. Bridenstine File
‘American Energy Renaissance’ Bills

Nearly one month after Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke before a group of oilfield executives and employees to announce his idea of an American Energy Renaissance Act to increase jobs and energy independence—his office recently announced the filing of similarly-named legislation. During his speech reported on by Breitbart Texas in February, Cruz said, “The American energy renaissance that is beginning before our eyes can help save us from the Obama economy.” Sen. Cruz announced--in conjunction with Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK)--the filing of legislation that could bring the goal of new, high-paying jobs for Americans to reality. Together, the Republicans announced

Obamacare’s Score of 67

In school, a child who gets a 67 percent will generally get a D. But for Obamacare, 67 percent is apparently grounds for an A. Talk about grading on a curve.In 2012, the Congressional Budget Office projected that 9 million people would get health insurance for 2014 through Obamacare’s government-run exchanges. Two days ago, the Obama administration announced that 6 million people had gotten insurance for 2014 through those very same exchanges—and the administration could barely contain its glee. So, what gives? In the summer of 2012, the Supreme Court issued its Obamacare ruling, holding that Obamacare’s individual mandate was

It was an interesting day for Clint Didier. The former Washington Redskins tight end and current congressional candidate — he’s running for the Washington House seat that Doc Hastings will vacate upon retirement — has been in Washington, D.C., since Tuesday, meeting with groups, sitting down with prominent conservative politicians, and working to garner support for his congressional bid. And now he’s got an interesting conversation-starter. A poll commissioned by his campaign and provided first to the Washington Examiner indicates that he has 70 percent name recognition in the district and is leading his nearest opponent for the Republican nomination

Visitors to Sprinkles Cupcakes’ new Cupcake ATM, which opened this week, declared the desserts worth the wait. The company opened a pink 24-hour Cupcake ATM on Tuesday outside its Lexington Avenue location, giving people the chance to swipe their credit cards and choose from a variety of flavors, vanilla to banana chocolate, delivered in boxes to a window. The cupcakes cost $4.25 apiece with a limit of four per person and can also be purchased in the store when the store is open. (But really, why would you?)

BRUSSELS— NATO’s next leader was announced Friday: former Norwegian Premier Jens Stoltenberg will lead the military alliance starting in October. The appointment comes at a critical time as the crisis over Ukraine has suddenly made the 28-nation alliance a more relevant security force in Europe. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen will step down after a NATO summit in Wales later this year. “Warm congratulations” Fogh Rasmussen said in a Twitter message Friday to his fellow Scandinavian politician. The past weeks had seen a flurry of diplomacy as member states sought to push their candidates into NATO’s top political job. Norwegian

Maine councilmen refuse to stand
for flag pledge: It’s ‘ludicrous,’ one says
Washington Times (D.C), by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/28/2014 12:49:26 PM     Post Reply
Two council members in Hampden, Maine, have sparked a widespread furor — that just keeps getting wider, thanks to videotape technology — for their refusal to stand before meetings for the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. One of the council members, Vietnam veteran Thomas Brann, said he’s opted not to stand for the pledge since January, when it was ruled a council policy, The Blaze reported. But he said he has good reason. Mr. Brann, who’s served on the council for 14 years, told The Blaze that he didn’t care for the reason Mayor Carol Duprey gives for

Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., Vietnam
POW and U.S. senator, dies

Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a retired Navy rear admiral and former U.S. senator who survived nearly eight years of captivity in North Vietnamese prisons, and whose public acts of defiance and patriotism came to embody the sacrifices of American POWs in Vietnam, died March 28 at a hospice in Virginia Beach. He was 89. The cause was complications from a heart ailment, said his son Jim Denton. Adm. Denton was a native of Alabama, where in 1980 he became the state’s first Republican to win election to the Senate since Reconstruction.

From his antics off the field to his free-wheeling style of play on it, nothing about Johnny Manziel has ever been normal. And his pro day on Thursday at Texas A&M was no different. Former President George W. Bush showed up to watch, and Nike tried to transform the entire event — which was televised on ESPN2 and streamed on the network’s website — into a cash grab. And in between all that, Johnny Football did his best to show that he can play NFL football, completing 61 of his 64 throws during his 45-minute workout. With rap music playing

BOSTON- Former U.S. President George H. W. Bush was pilloried in 1990 when he broke his "Read my lips: no new taxes" campaign pledge, and may have lost his chance at re-election as a result. But this year he is getting an award for the decision. The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation on Thursday announced the 41st U.S. president, father of former President George W. Bush, is co-recipient of the 2014 Profile in Courage Award for making the politically difficult choice to raise taxes two years into his first term. "Although he recognized the 1990 budget deal might doom his

ARLINGTON — Another day of sifting through the wreckage trapped beneath the deadly Snohomish County mudslide increased the number of confirmed victims but failed to provide answers for the nearly 100 families anxious for word of missing loved ones. By the end of Thursday, the number of missing — 90 — remained unchanged from Wednesday while the list of recovered bodies increased by one despite a search involving 200 members of local, state and federal teams, according to the head of the county’s Department of Emergency Management. Seventeen bodies have been recovered from the square-mile area covered by mud, the

CAIRO — Over seven decades, the United States and Saudi Arabia forged a strategic alliance that became a linchpin of the regional order: a liberal democracy and an ultraconservative monarchy united by shared interests in the stability of the Middle East and the continued flow of oil. But with President Obama arriving in Riyadh on Friday, the rulers of Saudi Arabia say they feel increasingly compelled to go their own way, pursuing starkly different strategies from Washington in dealing with Iran, Syria, Egypt and the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the region. “Their view of Mr. Obama is that

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
