What´s the best way to spot if
someone´s lying? Just ask them:
Study finds frequent fibbers

How do you catch out habitual liars? Well, according to the latest research, there´s an incredibly easy way - and it´s got nothing to do with their noses. Simply ask them. A Dutch study has found that people who regularly lie are more than happy to admit it. It´s thought that habitual liars possess psychopathic traits such as a lack of remorse or guilt, which means they see no problem with honestly admitting to telling fibs. To test that theory, 527 people were surveyed to find out how often they had lied in the past 24 hours. Forty one per

Well it appears that liars are really truth tellers about one thing.

Meet the latest face of bootleg Pakistani Viagra: President Obama. “Apparently a symbol of power and virility, Barack Obama is the unwitting face of contraband Viagra sold in this market in Peshawar,” according to a report from Agence France-Presse. The president is featured on a number of different forms of the drug. Even though Pakistan has banned the erectile-dysfunction medication, the agency reports some forms are smuggled into the country from neighboring Afghanistan.

BILLINGS — An assistant softball coach at Billings Central Catholic School said she was dismissed Monday because of her work at Planned Parenthood. Tarn Duff, 26, was an unpaid volunteer during the Rams’ 2012 season and received about $1,500 for her work coaching hitters and outfielders during the 2013 season. Duff, of Billings, said head coach Coleman Rockwell delivered the news to her Monday morning. “The only reason they gave me was that I work at Planned Parenthood,” she said. The story follows in the wake of an unmarried Butte Elementary School teacher, Shaela Evenson, who was fired Jan. 10

Satanist dismisses claims of

At least one Satanist leader is a nonbeliever when it comes to a Pennsylvania woman´s claims that she joined a satanic cult, then killed dozens of people over a six-year period. Miranda Barbour, 19, accused of killing a man in November that she met on Craigslist, made national headlines last week when she told a local newspaper she killed at least 22 others. Barbour, in a jailhouse interview, told The Daily Item in Sunbury that she was sexually abused as a child, joined a satanic cult when she was 13 — and that the cult leader helped her pull the

Denmark bans halal and kosher

Denmark’s government has brought in a ban on the religious slaughter of animals for the production of halal and kosher meat, after years of campaigning from welfare activists. The change to the law, announced last week and effective as of yesterday, has been called “anti-Semitism” by Jewish leaders and “a clear interference in religious freedom” by the non-profit group Danish Halal. European regulations require animals to be stunned before they are slaughtered, but grants exemptions on religious grounds. For meat to be considered kosher under Jewish law or halal under Islamic law, the animal must be conscious when killed.

   

 

  


 
Connecticut Gun Owners
Deliver a Message--´No we won´t´

Did you know that quietly--very quietly thanks to a biased media--tens of thousands of American citizens delivered a message about the limits of government? Did you know that citizens of one state engaged in a mass act of civil disobedience that has left statist officials from both parties scratching their heads as an entire regulatory scheme collapsed? Last week, Connecticut politicians were shocked to find out that only a fraction of Connecticut gun owners obeyed a state directive to come forward, declare their weapons, and register them with the government.

A mysterious cluster of severe birth defects in rural Washington state is confounding health experts, who say they can find no cause, even as reports of new cases continue to climb. Federal and state officials won’t say how many women in a three-county area near Yakima, Wash., have had babies with anencephaly, a heart-breaking condition in which they’re born missing parts of the brain or skull. And they admit they haven´t interviewed any of the women in question, or told the mothers there´s a potentially widespread problem. But as of January 2013, officials with the Washington state health department and

Send in the clowns — please! As the “Greatest Show on Earth” returns to Brooklyn Thursday, circus folk fear a national clown shortage is on the horizon. Membership at the country’s largest trade organizations for the jokesters has plunged over the past decade as declining interest, old age and higher standards among employers align against Krusty, Bozo and their crimson-nosed colleagues. “What’s happening is attrition,” said Clowns of America International President Glen Kohlberger, who added that membership at the Florida-based organization has plummeted since 2006. “The older clowns are passing away.”

One in four Americans are completely unfamiliar with Nicolaus Copernicus´s 1543 theory that the Earth circles the Sun, according to a study by the National Science Foundation. (snip) The question - "Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth" - was answered incorrectly by 26 per cent of respondents. Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals and just 39 percent answered correctly that "the universe began with a huge explosion". A total of 42 per cent of Americans said

DAKAR, Senegal — A mob attacked gay people in a neighborhood in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, dragging young men from their homes, beating them with nail-studded clubs and whips, and shouting that they were “cleansing the community” of gays, several Nigerian activists and a witness said Saturday. The attack took place late Wednesday night in the Gishiri neighborhood, and one victim was beaten nearly to death, the witness said. Afterward, the mob of about 50 young men dragged four of the victims to a nearby police station, where the police further beat and insulted them, said the witness, who

In an interview with Now This News, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed marriage, whether it is traditional or same-sex, and seemed to dismiss the sacred tradition. “But I would say, you know, if you’re getting married -- why are you getting married?" she said. "Why would you get married? Why would anybody get married? In that the person that they love so much, that was irresistible, that they had to get married?"

STOCKTON — A fight on the basketball court between a fan and the wife of a rival basketball coach ended the night for both schools. The melee stopped the freshman girls game between McNair and St. Mary’s High School and canceled the rest of the night’s games. St. Mary’s girl’s basketball coach Tom Gonzalves is still in shock after what he describes as a brutal attack on his wife. “I’ve been coaching for a long time, and it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen,” he said. “She was covering herself up, and the lady was like, bam bam, and I saw two hits.” During a heated rivalry game, Gonzalves says a woman rooting

Look up irony in the dictionary and you´ll find Barack Obama. The president made it known before his 2014 State of the Union address that he plans to bypass Congress this year to push his agenda forward. Does anyone remember when then-Senator Obama said he took the Constitution "very seriously?" Yeah, that´s right. In 2008, Obama was worried about George Bush bypassing Congress – and vowed to do something about it if he was elected president later that year. You know I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously – the biggest problems that were

The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. The FBI documents that Clarion has obtained show that the group is headquartered in the well known “Islamberg”

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is
fair game in presidential race

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/18/2014 1:30:52 AM     Post Reply
There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 17, 2014 – President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.” Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages” and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, among other provisions, because “as a country and a people, the United States has consistently

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out.

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 will help "people who just want to work hard," but it also will help those who want to "work less," White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. He argued that Americans support raising the minimum wage because it will lift "struggling" families out of poverty: "But they also know what it´s like to see a friend, a neighbor, where one spouse goes back to work, who would prefer maybe not to work. Maybe they´re working part-time just to supplement the family´s income. And they think, if that

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now
