  • Treasury Says Billions Paid to Iran Not Used to Fund Terrorists [semi-satire]

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told the House Financial Services Committee that "we have no evidence that the billions of dollars we have released to Iran in the past year have been used to fund terrorism. In fact, the government of Iran has assured us, in no uncertain terms, that not one dollar has been used to directly finance any terrorist group." Lew admitted that "we have no real way of knowing. We didn't record the serial numbers of any of the bills we handed over" as "this would not have shown good faith. Friendship is built upon a certain measure...

    Alternate headline: “Ditka wraps up 2020 Republican nomination.” “I think it’s a problem,” Ditka said. “Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the hell out.”…“I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick,” Ditka added. “He probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is that I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.” That’s as pure as nationalism gets. What does he think of Richard Sherman’s press...

    Parents with children in elementary school should take a look at this short video. At this moment, tens of thousands of public schools are making millions of little children memorize sight-words. This malpractice will retard their education and cripple their reading ability. This four-minute video explains why. Sight-words are, of course, the problem that Rudolf Flesch wrote about in 1955 in his famous book "Why Johnny can't read." Our Education Establishment is relentless in pretending that phonics is no good and must be replaced by various "modern" methods. These methods had many names over the last 80+ years. But it...
  • New York Times Editorial Board Endorses Hillary Clinton: The Issues Dont Matter!

    The New York Times editorial board endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Saturday. That is not surprising. But the way the board did it is. In any normal election year, wed compare the two presidential candidates side by side on the issues. But this is not a normal election year, the Times admitted in its first sentence. It continued: A comparison like that would be an empty exercise in a race where one candidate our choice, Hillary Clinton has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas, and the other, Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself...

But that is the circumstance that we are in," Palmieri said Friday. She went on, and continued to work the referees by stating her team is worried about the moderators situation. "For the moderator to let lies go unchallenged would give Donald Trump an unfair advantage, and we believe it is the role of the moderator, particularly in this case to call out those lies and to...

    A CBS4 investigation has found multiple cases of dead men and women voting in Colorado months and in some cases years after their deaths, a revelation that calls into question safeguards designed to prevent such occurrences. We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred, said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams after reviewing the CBS4 findings. It shows there is the potential for fraud. The cases of dead men and women casting ballots ranged from El Paso County in southern Colorado to Denver and Jefferson County. CBS4 discovered the fraudulent voting by comparing databases of...

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) Hillary Clinton has appeared in more than 30 primary debates during her two presidential campaigns, a deep history she can draw upon as she faces Donald Trump on Monday night. Clinton has been through the debate gauntlet in two New York Senate campaigns as well as in presidential primary match-ups against then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders this year and other challengers. Here's a look at some key moments of Clinton's past debates that could influence her performance against Trump: __ BULLYING CAN BACKFIRE Clinton's first 2000 Senate debate with Republican rival...

    HIGH POINT, N.C. Donald Trumps week began in the wake of explosions in New Jersey and New York. It ended in the aftermath of shootings and riots. For a candidate whose strategy relies on painting a dystopian view of the nation - often based on inaccurate and questionable claims - the tragedies yielded a trove of political opportunities. Shortly after the first bomb went off -- Trump boasted that he had been ahead of newscasters in calling it a bomb -- he seized upon the terrorist act as justification for some of the most disputed things he has said...

    All politicians bend the truth to fit their purposes, including Hillary Clinton. But Donald J. Trump has unleashed a blizzard of falsehoods, exaggerations and outright lies in the general election, peppering his speeches, interviews and Twitter posts with untruths so frequent that they can seem flighty or random even compulsive. However, a closer examination, over the course of a week, revealed an unmistakable pattern: Virtually all of Mr. Trumps falsehoods directly bolstered a powerful and self-aggrandizing narrative depicting him as a heroic savior for a nation menaced from every direction. Mike Murphy, a Republican strategist, described the practice as...

George Soros. In an apparent effort to "keep the medias attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August," liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into...

And while most consider jobs and the economy equally important, very few realize just how precarious the U.S. financial condition really is. In a recent campaign speech, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that Fed chief Janet Yellen should be ashamed of herself for what she was doing to Americans and for creating a false stock market.

    Listen up, NASA. Stephen Hawking has said it before and he’ll say it again: If extraterrestrials call, do not answer ― at least, not without careful consideration. Well, we’re convinced. NASA, we really hope you’re listening.

    Most Labour moderates must have expected a crushing Corbyn victory, but this result will surely have left many feeling bewildered. As a campaigner for Corbyn, let me explain what I think is happening and offer some advice. To listen to some on Labour Right youd think the party membership had lost their minds. This is ironic given the anti-Corbyn camps behaviour over the last year, and particularly the last three months. In any case, were far from mad; there is something deeper going on. The movement which swept Corbyn to office, and has just crushed the attempt to remove him,...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2016 | Bruce Walker
    ~snips~ Americans will be watching the presidential debates closely not for policies or ideas, but for images and demeanor. This creates a clear opening for Donald Trump. Hillary has hidden behind flacks and party hacks and pandering and controlled media. Trump has behaved exactly the opposite way, speaking for himself, attacking party machines, and acting often unscripted. If Hillary was elected, she would be the fattest president since William Howard Taft, the shortest president since James Madison, and the second oldest president in American history. These very visible factors will quietly blend into the evaluation voters will make of...

    Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we first practice to deceive. Sir Walter Scott When Dr. Lisa Bardack[*] was asked to become Hillary Clintons personal physician in 2001, it had to have been a crowning moment in the career of the Mt. Kisco internist. Dr. Bardack could have anticipated little downside. She already had the responsibility -- and legal obligation under HIPAA -- to protect the privacy of her patient. She and her staff would have to be especially scrupulous in the case of a senator with presidential ambitions, but this should not have posed a serious problem. Unfortunately,...

    Please brace for just one thick sentence: ICANN's power is mainly legal, and a contract with ICANN could trigger a violent dispute over international law. ~ ~ ~ Bluntly stated: giving away ICANN could ultimately trigger a cyber war or worse. ~ ~ ~ Raw Power and International Law When you face a super power like the USA it helps to have raw power. China probably assumes it will not come to that, but just like nuclear deterence, they need the war-making capability. And the Chinese already enjoy raw power. Their encryption is superior, their nuclear capability suffices, and they...

    PITTSBURGHRunning for president is a very important endeavor, Donald Trump said. What is more important, right? He leaned forward on his chair, separated by a heavy black curtain in a makeshift green room from the crowd waiting to hear him speak at the Shale Insight Conference. I am running because, number one, I think I will do a very good job. Number two, its really about making American great again. He paused, as if realizing that repeating his campaign slogan might not seem genuine. I mean that; I really do want to make America great again, he said. That is...
