Cliven Bundy´s War: Inside the Rancher´s
Independent Sovereign Republic

GQ Magazine, by Zach Baron

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/3/2014 4:18:38 AM

I. Warning: The Latrines Are Kinda Full It´s April in the Nevada desert, not even 11 A.M., and the heat is already physical, like something you could lean on. To those not yet accustomed to the republic, like myself, there´s a feeling of unreality to it. Even the view from up here, looking north: blue-green river shading to red-orange mesa shading to gray-red mountain, like a Looney Tunes cartoon. From under the command tent at what some were calling Camp Tripwire and others Camp Liberty, maybe a mile down the road from the Bundy ranch—family home of Cliven Bundy, the rancher whose

I have a feeling this is a hatchet job, so I better not read it at this time and get upset.

Will a Wyoming strategy to
save the sage grouse work?
Casper Star Tribune [WY], by Benjamin Storrow    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/26/2014 10:43:58 AM     Post Reply
Next year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will decide whether or not to list the sage grouse as an endangered species. It has the potential to be a watershed moment, and not just for the bird, whose numbers have been in steady decline for a half-century. Wyoming’s economy is built on the sagebrush steppes sage grouse call home. Some 15.3 million acres, or 25 percent of the state, is considered important habitat for the bird. Ranchers rely on these windswept lands to graze their cattle. Oil, gas and mining companies drill holes in the dusty surface to access the rich treasure

Why won’t this ice

Eating ice cream is the summer heat is one of life´s great feats, but is it really ice cream if it doesn’t melt? Christie Watson of Cincinnati had been treating her kids to ice cream sandwiches from Walmart but one morning she noticed an uneaten sandwich left outside had barely melted overnight in the 80 degree weather. "I thought that´s quite weird," Watson told local station WCPO 9. "So I looked at the box, and it doesn´t say artificial ice cream. It says ice cream." Perplexed, she shared her story and the station decided to conduct a little ice cream experiment. The station set

Stephen A. Smith Is Sorry You Thought
He Said Women Provoke Domestic Abuse

Tensions have been running high in the sports journalism world in the wake of the NFL´s toothless two-game ban of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice following his arrest for domestic violence in the off-season. In a debate on ESPN´s First Take with Skip Bayless this morning, Stephen A. Smith took his thoughts on the matter in a curious direction. (Emphasis ours) But what I´ve tried to employ the female members of my family, some of who you all met and talked to and what have you, is that again, and this what, I´ve done this all my life, let's make sure we don't do anything to provoke wrong actions, because if I come,

Ted Nugent loses second
casino gig for ‘racist remarks’

Conservative rock star Ted Nugent has lost his second scheduled casino performance in the past few days over perceived “racist remarks” he’s made against various American figures. Seattle’s NBC affiliate reported that Mr. Nugent’s Aug. 2 and 3 shows at the Emerald Queen Casino were canceled due to the rocker’s history of “racist remarks,” according to the Puyallup Native American Tribe, which runs the casino. “The First Amendment gives people the right to free speech, but I think racism is intolerable and not acceptable here,” Puyallup Tribal Council Vice President Lawrence LaPointe told the affiliate. “We’ve been getting lots of

"I was sitting right there," says Mick Jagger, pointing at a row of seats in the famous first balcony at New York´s Apollo Theater. He is remembering how, as a young fan back in England, he had worn out the grooves on his copy of James Brown´s 1963 album, "Live at the Apollo." Then, he says, he watched from the balcony in 1964 as the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business performed his splits and spins and dropped to his knees begging and screaming "Please Please Please." Fifty years later, Mr. Jagger is back at the Apollo, speaking in the historic

A central Newfoundland woman who captured the sudden disintegration of an arched iceberg says she has learned a lesson about getting too close to the massive structures. "I think my heart came up, and I swallowed it. I was petrified," said Wanda Stead, who unexpectedly caught the collapse on video on Tuesday while she was enjoying a day on the Bay of Exploits with her husband. The couple, who live in Gander, have a cabin in Cottlesville. Stead´s video shows how the arch in the iceberg suddenly began to crack, and within seconds, tonnes of ice had fallen to the bay

It´s been five years since Congress last raised the federal minimum wage, and the laugh-a-minute gang over at Organizing for Action wants you to do something about it. You might better remember the group as Organizing for America. An offshoot of President Obama´s campaign apparatus, the grassroots organization is tasked with promoting his legislative agenda. (Snip) In the grand tradition of meaningless political theater, they are challenging sympathetic Americans to live for one week on that budget and chronicle the results on the Twitter hashtag #LiveTheWage. The results could not possibly be more entertaining. The first clue that this hacky

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

The National Science Foundation has committed $10 million to build robots that will act as “personal trainers” for children, in an effort to influence their behavior and eating habits. The government has spent $2.15 million so far for the five-year project, which is being led by Yale University. The project, “Robots Helping Kids,” will ultimately “deploy” robots into homes and schools to teach English as a second language, and encourage kids to exercise. The project will develop a “new breed of sophisticated ‘socially assistive’ robots,” designed to help children “learn to read, appreciate physical fitness, overcome cognitive disabilities, and perform

Braley under fire for missing
VA oversight meetings
Des Moines Register [IA], by Jennifer Jacobs    Original Article

Over a two-year period, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley missed 75 percent of meetings for a committee that provides oversight over the Veterans Administration, including one meeting on a day he attended three fundraisers for his 2012 campaign. A few months later, news reports exposed systemic problems in patient care that have since resulted in the resignation head of the federal department of veterans affairs. Republicans argue that Braley, who missed 15 of the 20 Veterans´ Affairs Committee meetings in 2011 and 2012, has shown a lack of commitment to conditions within the health care system for veterans. Democrats who back Braley, a

On April 8, 2013, I received an envelope in the mail from a nonexistent return address in Toledo, Ohio. Inside was a blank thank-you note and an Ohio state driver’s license. The ID belonged to a 28-year-old man called Aaron Brown—6 feet tall and 160 pounds with a round face, scruffy brown hair, a thin beard, and green eyes. His most defining feature, however, was that he didn’t exist. I know that because I created him. As an artist, I’ve long been interested in identity and the ways it is represented. My first serious body of work, Springfield, used the concept of

Obama wants to be impeached

Washington Times, by Ernest Istook    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/25/2014 8:09:42 PM     Post Reply
President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension. For weeks, it seemed as if JJ was on the chopping block. He was suspended two more times, once for throwing another chair and then for spitting on a student

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

(Video) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her comments that Americans should view the flood of children crossing the border while claiming refugee status just like baby Jesus. Pelosi reminded reporters that it was the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested that if Moses hadn’t have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn’t be the Ten Commandments. “You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh´s family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says. According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations. Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House

The View chat show is in chaos after producers hopeful that conservative Meghan McCain might join the team turned down the offer. The conservative pundit and daughter of Senator John McCain appeared as a guest co-host on The View earlier this month as part of a tryout to join the talk show. After losing all their co-hosts except for Whoopi Goldberg, the show is in turmoil as they struggle to find suitable replacements. Barbara Walters retired, Sherri Shepherd moved on after seven years and Jenny McCarthy left the show after just one season. McCain, 29, is currently a panelist on

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s
