  • Is a Management Shake-up Looming at Fox News?

    As Fox News is roiled by lawsuits and the ouster of Bill O’Reilly, the network’s co-president Bill Shine has retained the backing of the Murdochs. On Monday, Rupert Murdoch took network co-presidents Shine and Jack Abernethy to lunch at Marea, a seafood restaurant near Fox’s midtown headquarters — a highly public show of support. But privately, Shine is expressing concern about his future at the network. According to three sources briefed on the conversations, Shine has told friends he recently asked Rupert’s sons James and Lachlan — the CEO and co-chairman, respectively, of network parent company 21st Century Fox —...
  • Climate science: Dishonest for decades

    Former Obama Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin made news on Monday when he told the Wall Street Journal that the administration spun climate data to shape public opinion. “What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said. What is most shocking about the mini-Koonin flap is that anyone was shocked. Scientific showmen have been manipulating climate data as a way of shaping policy for decades. In 1983, for instance, a veritable supergroup of scientific rock stars, including the self-promoting pothead Carl Sagan, published a paper in...

I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I’m one of the fastest digesters of news there is out there so I’ll digest this really fast as a fast digester does and I’ll get you the details...

    The Stream ^ | Jay Richards
    This week’s March for Science is odd. Marches are usually held to defend something that’s in peril. Does anyone really think big science is in danger? The mere fact that the March was scheduled for Earth Day betrays what the event is really about: politics. The organizers admitted as much early on, though they’re now busy trying to cover the event in sciencey camouflage. If past is prologue, expect to hear a lot about the supposed “consensus” on catastrophic climate change this week. The purpose of this claim is to shut up skeptical non-scientists. How should non-scientists respond when told...

    You’ve been snookered, folks. By that poor elderly doctor who was involuntarily dragged from his seat, had his face smashed in, and was beaten unconscious by the evil airport security at the behest of United Airlines. Because there’s no evidence any of that was true. It was in fact a premeditated temper tantrum gone viral, featuring one 69-year-old Vietnamese-American David Dao, a medical doctor who’d lost his license, planning a lawsuit from the moment United first politely asked him to give up his seat. He demanded to be dragged and, when police obliged, struck his lip on an armrest. From...

    AKP is preparing for an extensive attack on the Kurdish Freedom Movement with support from the KDP. Recently, intelligence institutions, Turkish authorities, Iran and KDP have had several meetings. According to reports, there is a preparation for an extensive attack on PKK-held Medya Defense Zones by the end of April by AKPÂ’s demand. The MÄ°T Undersecretary first inspected the forces in Bashiqa and then he met with Masrur Barzani. Later, he met with KDP administrations in Hewler. An extensive war on Medya Defense Zones and Shengal were decided on in these meetings. TSK WILL CREATE A LINE OF ATTACK ON...

    Some 51.4 percent of the more than 58 million Turks who turned out to vote on April 16 said yes to the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) constitutional amendment package. With that vote, they decided to shift to an executive presidential system.It is debatable if the government would still have won if it had not detained thousands of political dissidents, imposed a state of emergency, and labeled “no voters” as terrorists and traitors. In addition, many irregularities took place before and during the counting. The Supreme Election Board (YSK), for example, controversially announced that it would accept unsealed ballots after it...

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Wednesday that he has obtained his first conviction of a person who illegally voted in a Kansas election without being a U.S. citizen. Kobach, who has advised President Donald Trump on immigration and voter fraud, said that Victor David Garcia Bebek has pleaded guilty to voter fraud. Kobach, a Republican, is the only secretary of state in the country with the authority to prosecute voter fraud. “No matter how many cases we prosecute the political left will always whine that there’s not enough cases to justify protecting our elections in this way,” Kobach...

  • Data Show Counties in 11 States Have More Registered Voters than Eligible Adult Citizens

    (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today announced it has sent notice-of-violation letters threatening to sue 11 states having counties in which the number of registered voters exceeds the number of voting-age citizens, as calculated by the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011-2015 American Community Survey. According to the letters, this is “strong circumstantial evidence that these … counties are not conducting reasonable voter registration record maintenance as mandated under the [National Voter Registration Act] NVRA.” Both the NVRA and the federal Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls.

    CNN apparently tried to be “fair and balanced” during the channel’s CNN Newsroom program on Tuesday morning, April 11, when co-hosts John Berman and Poppy Harlow moderated a debate that degenerated into an argument between political commentators Jeffrey Lord and Angela Rye that dealt with topics ranging from the relationship between America and Russia to global climate change. Rye’s comment to Lord came near the end of the segment, when she told him: “Climate change is a real thing. … Tell your friends that there are icebergs melting, OK? We have a real challenge, and your guy is dialing back...

    ...Late last year Fernando received news he had dreaded for months: he and 23 of his classmates had been kicked out of college. The headline run by weekly magazine CartaCapital — “White Students Expelled from University for Defrauding Affirmative Action System”. But the headline clashes with how Fernando sees himself. He identifies as "pardo", or brown: a mixed-race person with black ancestry. For Brazil’s black activists, however, the breach of the country’s unofficial color-blindness has also been accompanied by suspicion over race fraud: people taking advantage of affirmative action policies never meant for them in the first place. “These spots...

    A ringleader in one of the biggest Social Security disability fraud cases in U.S. history has pleaded guilty to filing more than 1,700 bogus applications, bilking the government out of potentially a half-billion dollars. But the administration is struggling to figure out how to handle the applicants, many of whom say that even though their applications were falsified, their cases are real and they shouldn’t be punished for having been ensnared by the massive fraud. Eric C. Conn, a prominent lawyer in eastern Kentucky, signed a guilty plea late last month acknowledging the scam, in which he recruited and filed...

    Anonymous sources within the FBI have revealed to The Times that they have new evidence indicating that everyone who voted for Donald Trump is an agent of the FSB (formerly the KGB). An unknown portion of these voters may have had their minds controlled by a Russian space-beam, agents close to the investigation say. The allegation that 62 million Americans appear to be employed by Russian intelligence services has rocked the Bureau, and it is reported that multiple agents have taken their own lives, given that realizing just how deep this Russian hacking conspiracy runs blew their minds – literally....
