    In the majority of the world, a foreign journalist criticizing the government will at minimum be instantly deported, though in many cases far worse. How come foreign 'journalists' such as Australian Michael Holmes (working out of Atlanta) and British Iranian Christiane Amanpour get to spew their anti-American bias on a daily basis, on CNN International?

    Who is the anonymous online poster claiming to be a high-level administration official? And can he or she bring us some much-needed truth in an era of fake news?I’ve been a writer and producer of television and movies working in Hollywood for over 30 years. One of my recent jobs was on the TV series Homeland, where I was involved in creating the season just concluded. The season was about information warfare. It’s a little-discussed subject, and it took a lot of research to find out exactly what this protean form of conflict is all about. The past season of...

    Save Happy summer solstice. We in the Northern Hemisphere of the planet called Earth are tilted closest to the sun. According to the National Weather Service, the earth will have reached its maximum tilt at 3:07 a.m. today. Most of you probably missed the moment, but you can still celebrate. It’s the longest day of the year in terms of hours of sunlight, and we’ll continue to have more daylight than nighttime until the September equinox. It’s also the official start of summer, though we here in SoCo have had plenty already. A climatologist in Alaska says we will have...

    It's late, I'm exhausted, won't get back to this before 9AM, BUT .... Southwest Key Programs is the entity that holds the contract to "shelter" illegal immigrant kids. They have taken down their website today and replaced it with a generic info page. I looked up The Board of Directors, not easy but doable, and found that every one is connected to La Raza. What the effing hell. Does this make libs happy? Or not?
  • Famous Veteran: Jimmy Stewart

    06/20/2018 10:10:22 PM PDT · by eastforker · 31 replies ^ | 2018 |
    "I'd like people to remember me as someone who was good at his job and seemed to mean what he said." Born to the owner of a hardware store, Jimmy Stewart dodged continuing the family business to become one of the most prolific actors of this time. Stewart was shy as a child and was interested in aviation, but his father discouraged him from attending the U.S. Naval Academy and guided him towards Princeton. It was at Princeton that Stewart became involved in acting, and began a career as a stage actor. During the depression, cinema houses were taking over...

    Trump popular, but not decisive factor West Long Branch, NJ – Incumbent Joe Manchin holds a small lead over GOP challenger Patrick Morrisey in the race for U.S. Senate in the deep red state of West Virginia. Even though Donald Trump is widely popular in West Virginia, the Democrat holds a lead because many voters are separating their feelings about the incumbent senator from their views of the president. The Monmouth University Poll also finds that the closely watched 3rd Congressional District contest is tighter, with Democrat Richard Ojeda having a very slight lead over Republican Carol Miller at this...
  • Liberals really DO drink more lattes (and researchers say it's because they're open-minded)

    Daily Mail ^ | June 20, 2018 | Mollie Cahillane
    The term 'liberal lattes' is a familiar pejorative in the US. The website Urban Dictionary defines the term as 'liberals who sit around and drink overpriced diluted Starbucks coffee while lamenting the plight of the poor'. While it may have begun as a joke, a new study shows that people with left-leaning ideologies actually do drink more lattes - a beverage with European origins - than conservatives. Researchers from University of Pennsylvania found that liberals drink lattes more so than conservatives because they are more open to globalization, whereas right-leaning people tend to take an 'America first' nationalistic attitude and...

    My daughter is an avid history buff and has, over the past few years, done quite a bit of reading on the Nazi concentration camps. I would love to take her to some of these sites some day, but for now all I can do is get some first-hand pics of someone else's visit. If anyone has been to any of the concentration camp memorial sites and has pics they could share it would be greatly appreciated.

    What just happened? Over the past six weeks, immigration officials have separated hundreds of migrant families who have either crossed into the United States illegally or have sought political asylum. A change in immigration policy by the Trump administration is resulting in thousands of children being housed separately from their parents as they await adjudication. The children are being kept in separate facilities and are unable to see their parents for an indefinite period of time.
