Global Warming Fanatics Won't Like The Results Of A New Study
A new study suggests that the warming trend on the West Coast over the last century was not caused by human activity but more so by a change in the winds. Using independent data from 1900 to 2012, researchers showed that the temperature change is "primarily attributed to changes in atmospheric circulation." Get the whole story HERE.

Today, 12:26 pmobama/bush
n Tuesday, The New York Times corrected a front page story from September 11, 2014, in which the Times falsely claimed that George W. Bush had not sought international alliances during the war in Iraq. Here's the correction:
An article on Sept. 11 about President Obama's speech to the nation describing his plans for a military campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, gave an incorrect comparison between efforts by the president to seek allies' support for his plans and President George W. Bush's efforts on such backing for the Iraq war. The approach Mr. Obama is taking is similar to the one Mr. Bush took; it is not the case that, "Unlike Mr. Bush in the Iraq war, Mr. Obama has sought to surround the United States with partners."
It only took the Times two weeks to correct this basic factual error. But the error has a point: to differentiate good, wise, holy and just Obama from evil supervillain George W. Bush. The New York Times is simply fulfilling Obama's central life function: not being George W. Bush.
In point of fact, Barack Obama had a total of nine allies in his battle against ISIS as of September 5. George W. Bush's original "coalition of the willing" had 48 countries as members.
Yesterday, 6:45 pm9 year old Black child shot dead...
he main, overarching tragedy in this story is that a 9-year-old boy is dead, gunned down by Chicago gang members who believed he was a lookout for a rival gang. The secondary tragedy is that the violent death of Antonio Smith, Jr., has been relegated to the back pages of the Chicago Tribune and other mainstream outlets that have carried the story of his murder.
The main reason for the silence of Al Sharpton and other race hucksters is that the four men charged with the boy's murder � Jabari Williams, 22, Michael D. Baker, Paris Denard, and Derrick Allmon, all 19 � are black.
New York's Daily News reports that the four thugs "were out looking to shoot rival gangsters on Aug. 20 when they encountered" the child playing in a yard near his home.
Allmon, who was armed and stalking two rivals, thought the boy was yelling out to warn his targets when he cut down the boy in a hail of bullets and left him lying next to a concrete slab in the back of a stranger's yard....

Free Beacon ^ | 9/21/14 | Alana Goodman
Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton's relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation,...
September 21, 2014, 6:45 pmObama/Canada...
There is little doubt, this president is responding, not out of any sense of what's right, but of pure politics.
ISIS is Barack Obama's mess.
He made it and now he wants our help to clean it up. What do Canadians owe him?
He's turned his back on allies such as Israel, having proven himself a bigger friend to the likes of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood than to the Jewish state.
He's no friend of Canada's.
Instead of working with his friends, he's tried in vain to appease such longtime enemiesobamas-mess-now-wants-canadas-help

September 20, 2014, 6:23 pmObama Feels Family Unnapreciared..
Speaking at the Congressional picnic at the White House on Wednesday, President Obama spoke on how being married to a politician is not easy and how sometimes their families might feel not appreciated.
He said, "The only other thing I want to say is, thank you to the families. You know it is, uh � Michelle was traveling to St. Judes today to be with the amazing kids there, and the doctors and staff, who help families going through really tough diseases. But she would be the first one to testify that being married to a politician is not easy. And being the partner of a politician, being the child of a politician, it's hard. Sometimes you see your loved one attacked, sometimes you see them not appreciated, and they're away too much, and you're having to shoulder some of the burdens of family. And so, to all the spouses, to all the children, everybody who helps support our public servants and our members of Congress, I just want to say thank you to you as well. For the great job that you do. We really, really appreciate it."
The quote starts at 3:54.
A word of advice to the first family: If you want to feel appreciated and feel warm and tingly inside, try to stop cramming things down the American people's throats like Obamacare and Michelle's school lunch programs.
Oh, and stop breaking the law.
September 20, 2014, 9:47 amDems and Obama...
When President Obama took office in 2009, congressional Democrats were euphoric. With control of the House, Senate and the White House, and high public approval for their new party standard bearer, Democrats eagerly embraced Obama and all the long-awaited policy initiatives he'd surely help them achieve.
In that first month, congressional Democrats mentioned Obama during floor speeches 200 or so more times than Republicans. In the next year and a half, the parties referred to the president at similar rates, sometimes with the Republicans having more to say, other times the Democrats.
One can reasonably assume that when the Democrats speak of the president publicly it's in a favorable way and when Republicans do it's, well, not quite as glowing. As positive public opinion of Obama began to dip after his first year, the spread between how often Republicans and the Democrats invoked Obama grew wider. Put simply, the Democrats weren't mentioning Obama by name nearly as much as Republicans.
The gap is particularly notable in the last year as seen in the chart above by the Sunlight Foundation, which measures how often any given word is spoken against all words in floor speeches and debates collected by the Congressional Record. Last fall, at the height of the government shutdown and the Obamacare rollout, Republicans were predictably discussing (bashing) Obama more.
But the trend has continued.
Much has been written this election cycle about the Democrats distancing themselves from Obama ahead of the midterm elections. Some Democratic candidates in tough races regularly emphasize their differences with the president. And Obama is persona non grata on the campaign trail (unless it's inside private high-dollar fundraiser dinners).
If the number of times they bring him up in front of the C-SPAN cameras is a measure, the Democrats detachment from the president is even evident on Capitol Hill � where every spoken word is recorded forever, so it's especially crucial to choose them carefully.
As my grandmother always said, "You can't take back the spoken word."
She also often said, "If you can't say anything, nice don't say anything at all." And perhaps Democrats simply don't have very many nice things to say.

There are about 200,000 Africans from countries hosting the deadly Ebola virus who hold temporary visas to visit the United States, greatly raising the stakes it could spread to America, according to a group following the immigration issue.
"Based on State Department nonimmigrant visa issuance statistics, I estimate that there are about 5,000 people in Guinea, 5,000 people in Sierra Leone, and 3,500 people in Liberia who possess visas to come to the United States today," said Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.
Add to that "more than 195,000 Nigerians" with visas to visit, or who could already be here, she said of the country that has seen temporary U.S. visas skyrocket.
The government has promised that the U.S. is safe, but that's not good enough for Vaughan. "At this time, with an extremely serious public health threat and more than 200,000 people who potentially could enter and spread it, either knowingly or unknowingly, the State Department and Department of Homeland Security should disclose to the public what they are doing to prevent travelers infected with Ebola from entering the country," she told Secrets.
The Ebola crisis is also drawing attention to citizens from Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia who overstay their visas. Vaughan said that the overstay rate of those from Ebola-impacted nations should be a concern.

I have to ask you all if you can answer this question: what is a "very significant counter-terrorism operation with many moving parts that will be done over a period of time?"
I have no idea either.
Our immediate task is to defeat ISIS. And I can sum up that strategy in eight words: We shoot, they die. We win, they lose.
September 14, 2014, 12:37 pmIndian Mating Season...
Two Indians and a Tennessee Hillbilly were walking through the woods. All of a sudden one of the Indians ran up a hill to the mouth of a small cave.
"Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" he called into the cave and listened closely until he heard an answering,
"Wooooo! Wooooo! Woooooo!
He then tore off his clothes and ran into the cave.
The Hillbilly was puzzled and asked the remaining Indian what it was all about. "Was that Indian crazy or what?"
The Indian replied "No, It is our custom during mating season when Indian men see cave, they holler 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' into the opening. If they get an answer back, it means there's a beautiful woman in there waiting for us."
Just then they came upon another cave. The second Indian ran up to the cave, stopped, and hollered,
"Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"
Immediately, there was the answer. "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" from deep inside. He also tore off his clothes and ran into the opening.
The Hillbilly wandered around in the woods
alone for a while, and then spied a third large cave.
As he looked in amazement at the size of the huge opening, he was thinking, "Hoo, man! Look at the size of this cave! It's bigger than those the Indians found.
There must be some really big, fine women in this cave!"
He stood in front of the opening and hollered with all his might, "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"
Like the others, he then heard an answering call,
"WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOO!"
With a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face,
he raced into the cave, tearing off his clothes as he ran.
The following day, the headline of the local newspaper read...
NAKED HILLBILLY RUN OVER BY TRAIN!!

September 12, 2014, 7:17 pmFoley's brother...
In reacting to President Obama's speech earlier this week, Foley said he wanted to see a more involved strategy put on the table to stabilize the region. Further in reaction to a question posed by Kelly about whether the Obama administration did everything it could to bring James Foley home, especially after the Bowe Bergdahl swap and comments by Obama saying Americans leave no man behind, Michael Foley said his family is "appalled" by the situation. Foley also talked about how he was threatened directly by the State Department and said that when the family tried to get information from the U.S. government or from other allies, they were stonewalled.
