Washington, D.C. “We have a report of a man on fire at 7th and Independence,” said D.C. police spokeswoman Saray Leon.Leon said authorities didn’t know what caused the fire. She said the man was “conscious and breathing” when firefighters responded.Fire Department spokesman Timothy J. Wilson said that the man was taken to the hospital with “life threatening injuries.” “No indication on our end of what caused the fire, the only thing we can pretty much comment on is we were dispatched to the call and responded to it,” Wilson said. “So how it started,

Can´t wait for Sheila Jackson Lee to explain this one. Maybe he was frustrated at not being able to navigate the Obamacare website.

Hmmm...confiscation of all matches and probably gasoline would have prevented this tragic death...or maybe a closer look at someone who is in such a state of mind that would roast himself on fire... Then again that might have invaded his privacy...what would the Democrats say??? The Liberals are still in shock because no gun was used...

Snowden Charade: Why the fugitive leaker

Put aside that Ed Snowden did the interview against the backdrop of an oversized Constitution, holding forth about the evils of American spying and the mendacity of top U.S. officials. Put aside that the man interviewing him, Ben Wizner, is an ACLU official.He is also Snowden’s legal adviser. Why on earth would the South by Southwest conference allow this charade? Can you imagine: Next up at SXSW, Barack Obama, interviewed by the White House counsel.Bill Gates, interviewed by Microsoft’s top lawyer?George Zimmerman, interviewed by the lawyer that helped him beat a murder rap?What an embarrassment.I understand that Snowden is a big “get”

Not long ago, a friend at work told me I absolutely, positively must watch “Broad City” on Comedy Central, saying it was a slacker-infused hilarity.My reaction? Oh no, not another one.The vast wasteland of television has been replaced by an excess of excellence that is fundamentally altering my media diet and threatening to consume my waking life in the process. I am not alone. Even as alternatives proliferate and people cut the cord, they are continuing to spend ever more time in front of the TV without a trace of embarrassment.

The president´s power grab

Recently, a bizarre scene unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives that would have shocked the framers of the Constitution. In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had decided to go it alone in areas where Congress refused to act to his satisfaction. In a system of shared powers, one would expect an outcry or at least stony silence when a president promised to circumvent the legislative branch. Instead, many senators and representatives erupted in rapturous applause; they seemed delighted at the notion of a president assuming unprecedented and unchecked powers at their

ustin, Texas - From his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, with roughly a dozen police officers outside, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Saturday that everyone in the world will be just as effectively monitored soon -- at least digitally."The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there and, arguably, will be there in the next couple of years," said Assange, speaking via Skype to a large audience at the South by Southwest Interactive festival here. Assange rocketed to international fame, and infamy, in 2010 after Wikileaks began helping publish secret government documents online.

Sometime during the summer of 1998, a Montana-based journalist named Walter Kirn received an odd request: His friends Harry and Mary Piper, wealthy and religious, had rescued an injured dog and found her a home.His new owner was named Clark Rockefeller, and as badly as he wanted this dog, he had no way to come get her: He lived in New York City, was unwilling to fly commercial, and his private plane was indisposed. His wife, Sandy, was traveling on business, and he wouldn’t make the cross-country drive alone. He didn’t want to hire a stranger to transport the dog. Intrigued,

BEIJING — Malaysian officials investigating the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane Saturday said they were not ruling out terrorism — or any other causes — as reports emerged that two Europeans listed on the passenger manifest were not aboard and may have had their passports stolen.Vietnamese military aircraft participating in a search-and-rescue operation for the Boeing 777, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, had spotted two oil slicks in the waters off southern Vietnam, the Associated Press reported. The government said the slicks were each six miles to nine miles long and were

NBC Refutes Claim that Costas’

Posted By: FlyRight- 3/8/2014 10:41:28 AM     Post Reply
Bob Costas suffered an eye infection during the Sochi Olympics, but The New York Post‘s Page Six claims to have an exclusive scoop on the reason why: “botched Botox.” That’s right, Page Six claims a source told them that “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” And while that seems a bit far-out there, NBC actually gave a statement to Page Six denying that Costas’ eye infection had anything to do with smoothing out face wrinkles. NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection

France´s right-wing opposition is reeling after the publication of secret tapes made at the Elysee palace during the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy.The recordings - in which Mr Sarkozy is heard discussing confidential affairs of state but also joshing with his wife Carla Bruni - were made by one of his closest advisers, Patrick Buisson.A highly controversial figure whose political origins lie on the far-right, Mr Buisson is credited with engineering Mr Sarkozy´s 2007 election by pushing him to toughen his stance on immigration, crime and national identity. After the election Mr Sarkozy said of him: "There are very few people of

Obama, Solipsist
National Review, by Michael Barone    Original Article

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word that means that the self is the only existing reality and that other entities, including other people, are representations of one’s own self and can have no independent existence. A person who follows this philosophy may believe that others see the world as he does and will behave as he would.It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — such as a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors, and is a better political director than his political

A Russia Today anchor quit live on air Wednesday, declaring she cannot work for a station that “whitewashes the actions of Vladimir Putin.” Liz Wahl, who works in the network’s Washington DC bureau, said her grandparents came to the United States to escape Soviet oppression. “And that is why personally I cannot be part of a station funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the action of Putin,” she said, reading from a statement. “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.” Earlier, Ms. Wahl had tweeted:

Last Thursday, a San Diego Police Department detective fired into a home before serving a drug warrant, wounding two men. The detective apparently attempted to knock on a window, causing the window to shatter. She then says she saw one of the men reaching for a gun. There were six people inside the house. None of them had a gun.In searching for more coverage of the story, I found a number of other recent and troubling police shootings in the San Diego area. Among them: Last September, a San Diego Police Department officer shot and killed a transient man who

Dems turn on Obama nominee;
president loses big vote in Senate
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/5/2014 1:38:02 PM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats killed the filibuster for nominations because they wanted to be able to confirm the president´s choices for top administration positions even if Republicans were united in opposition. From now on, Democrats ruled, nominations would be confirmed by a simple majority vote. With 55 Democrats in the Senate, and as few as 51 required for confirmation, the change virtually guaranteed success for the president´s nominees. But even a rule change was not enough to save the nomination of Debo Adegbile, the former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official who was the president´s choice to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know

With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
