The Israelis and the Saudis are convinced the Geneva talksare nothing more than appeasement, Munich style, and will do little to slow Iran's effort to possess a nuclear warhead.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, like his predecessor, the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, is not only unafraid of death, he welcomes it as an expression of profound religious excellence. A Sunday Times story headlined Two Old Foes Unite Against Tehran suggest, according to a diplomatic source, that Israels Mossad is working with the Saudis on contingency plans for an attack on Iran, should the latter not take down its nuclear weapons program in the deal to be signed in Geneva this week. The Israelis and the Saudis are convinced that the Geneva talks that seek to place limits on Tehrans military nuclear development are nothing more than ...

Giving All Americans a Basic Income Would End Poverty By Danny Vinik Nov. 12, 2013, 4:22 PM A simple idea for eliminating poverty is garnering greater attention in recent weeks: automatically have the government give every adult a basic income. The Atlantic's Matt Bruenig and Elizabeth Stoker brought up the idea a few weeks ago when they contemplated cutting poverty in half and Annie Lowrey revisited it today in the New York Times. Real wages have been stagnant in America for decades now and income inequality has grown immensely.In the aftermath of the Great Recession, its only gotten worse. The Census Bureau reported in September that the 15 percent of Americans (46.5 ...

All Lets not forget that it wasnt just President Obama who repeatedly told people that if they like their healthcare plan, they could keep it. When Obamacare was finally passed in the House, 219 Democrats voted for it, repeating the same false promise as the President did to the American people. Tomorrow, House Democrats have an opportunity to clarify whether they truly meant for people who liked their healthcare plan to be able it keep it, or if this was just a sales tactic to shove an already unpopular bill through Congress. Running into Democrats who cant quite ...

Man buys house next to ex-wife, erects giant middle finger statue
Post Date: 2013-11-16 17:49:05 by A K A Stone
Orchard Lake, Mich. (WJBK) -
Nothing quite communicates the wrath of a scorned lover like the middle finger. But in Bloomfield Hills, this middle finger is loud and proud - in the form of a near 12-foot high statue one man erected next door to his ex-wife.
Alan Markovitz recently moved into the home where the statue was erected, which happens to be next to the home where his ex-wife now lives with her new lover, whom she reportedly had an affair with while being married to Markovitz.
Markovitz tells Fox 2's Randy Wimbley his plan was to get even the ex-wife's new lover, and never meant for the matter be made public. However, it soon grabbed local attention when the ex-wife's ...

A 52-year-old man who allegedly fired a Civil War cannon at his neighbor's house for eight days straight during an ongoing feud was arrested yesterday. New York's Brian J. Malta is accused of repeatedly firing the antique long tom, loaded with a powder charge and wadding, at the Prosser Hill Road, Jamestown property. While it is not illegal to own a cannon, deputies reportedly confiscated it because it was used maliciously. Malta lives in the rural town of Kiantone, on the Pennsylvania border about 60 miles south of Buffalo. While AP reported Malta fired at the homes of multiple neighbors, Buffalo YNN claimed Malta's wrath was just directed toward one for more than a week. ...

Hollywood studios are urging theater operators to crack down on in-theater camcording with the deployment of night-vision goggles, low-light binoculars and security cameras. The latest version of the Motion Picture Association of Americas Best Practices to Prevent Film Theft (.pdf) also suggests old-school surveillance, like random bag and jacket checks for prohibited items and to observe patrons when entering the theater. Look for the unusual, such as someone wearing a long or unseasonably heavy coat in warm weather, odd shapes outlined in pockets or patrons carrying shopping bags. If any of these are observed, please take a closer ...
News report charges U.S. with conducting illegal operations from German soil
Post Date: 2013-11-15 21:35:21 by A K A Stone
BERLIN — The breach in U.S.-German relations seemed likely to widen Friday after a joint German newspaper and television investigation titled “Secret War” reported that American intelligence and military use this nation for “tapping, code cracking, recruiting informants, observing suspects, kidnapping and abducting foreign enemies.”
What’s more, the reports added: “The Germans have known all that for years.”
The reports come at a time when German-U.S. relations have been taking a beating. In June, documents released by former National Security Agency consultant Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA has spied on the electronic communications of tens of millions of Germans. In October, ...

Obama announces he will allow subpar or junk policies to be sold by bad apple insurance companies

Obama announces he will allow subpar or junk policies to be sold by bad apple insurance companies Thomas Lifson November 14, 2013 President Obama's press conference on Obamacare "fixes" today started more than half an hour after its announced time, a good indicator of last minute panic over wording. That's because appearances, not substance, are the essence of this "plan." For one thing, state insurance commissioners must approve any new plans. In California, health insurers have been required to sign contracts promising to end old policies, and the federal government lacks the authority to change lawful contracts. The idea that 50 state insurance ...

Strategic Move Exempts Health Law From Broader U.S. Statute By Robert Pear Published: November 4, 2013 WASHINGTON The Affordable Care Act is the biggest new health care program in decades, but the Obama administration has ruled that neither the federal insurance exchange nor the federal subsidies paid to insurance companies on behalf of low-income people are federal health care programs. The surprise decision, disclosed last week, exempts subsidized health insurance from a law that bans rebates, kickbacks, bribes and certain other financial arrangements in federal health programs, stripping law enforcement of a powerful tool used to fight fraud in other health care ...

Bill Clinton May Have Just Penned ObamaCare's Epitaph I
Post Date: 2013-11-13 08:59:19 by A K A Stone
Politics: Who would think the president who proposed HillaryCare would help kill ObamaCare. Bill Clinton just gave congressional Democrats cover to oppose their party's president and try salvaging their political skins. When New Coke failed back in the 1980s, the Coca-Cola Co. didn't "fix" it; the company swiftly brought back the real Coke, calling it "Coca-Cola Classic." In the end, New Coke was scrapped and the fiasco made consumers appreciate "The Real Thing" that they had taken for granted. ObamaCare can't be "fixed" any more than New Coke could. But the pressure's on for Democrats to get rid of it, even if, like the Coke ...
Evidence of Widespread Voter Fraud Found in Virginia Governor’s Race

Richmond, VAMerely hours after the close of a bitter and divisive Governors race in Virginia that saw Democrat Terry McAuliffe pull out a win over Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, irregularities in voting data have emerged. According to mainstream media outlets McAuliffe supposedly defeated Cuccinelli in a razor-thin 47-46 percent victory to become the next Governor of the great state of Virginia. Immediately following the announcement, Cuccinellis office opened a full investigation into the legitimacy of the vote and quickly turned up surprising results. In 13 districts, multiple instances of intimidation at the polls were reported. Large black men wearing ...

CORYDON, Iowa (AP) -- The hills of southern Iowa bear the scars of America's push for green energy: The brown gashes where rain has washed away the soil. The polluted streams that dump fertilizer into the water supply. Even the cemetery that disappeared like an apparition into a cornfield. It wasn't supposed to be this way. With the Iowa political caucuses on the horizon in 2007, presidential candidate Barack Obama made homegrown corn a centerpiece of his plan to slow global warming. And when President George W. Bush signed a law that year requiring oil companies to add billions of gallons of ethanol to their gasoline each year, Bush predicted it would make the country ...
What Business of the U.N. Is the Operation of the Alamo?

In a possible development that would have Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William Travis rolling in their graves, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is considering designating the Alamo a World Heritage Site. Such a designation brings along a myriad of restrictions, and although proponents of the designation, such as San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, insist that the State of Texas would still have authority over the site, many serious concerns of the people of Texas are not being addressed.
For one thing, such a designation establishes a "buffer zone" of some 4,500 acres around the site, which could affect thousands of Texan property owners in the ...

Buchanan: A Deal With Iran - Or War With Iran?
Post Date: 2013-11-12 13:12:38 by Brian S
By: Patrick J. Buchanan If Bibi Netanyahu succeeds in closing down Obamas diplomatic path to Iran, only the road to war remains open. Which is exactly what Bibi wants. For what terrifies Tel Aviv, and rattles Riyadh, is not a U.S. war with Iran, but the awful specter of American rapprochement with Iran, a detente. Thus, when Frances foreign minister torpedoed the deal John Kerry flew to Geneva to sign, France soared in neocon esteem. The cheese-eating surrender monkeys of 2003 who opposed the Iraq war suddenly became again the heroes of Verdun and the Marne. Vive La France blared the Wall Street Journal editorial declaiming, Francois ...

How Many Americans Actually Believe The Earth Is Only 6,000 Years Old?

For thirty years, Gallup has been asking Americans their views about evolution and human beings, and the results have been remarkably consistent and stable. Last year, Gallup once again reported that nearly half of the country believe the Biblical version of events: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The Bible doesnt actually say how long ago the account of creation in the book of Genesis was supposed to have taken place. But in 1650, Church of Ireland Archbishop James Ussher used the stories of the Old Testament to calculate that the world had been created ...

Yet, Christie registered a remarkable victory. He won with 60 percent in a blue state, winning 55 percent of women, half of the Hispanic vote and 20 percent of African- Americans. If he could replicate those numbers in New Jersey and nationally in 2016, Chris Christie would be elected president in a landslide. [T]his fellow is really on the ...
