Ways Around the Wikipedia Blackout

In case you haven't heard, Wikipedia, along with other large websites, are going "black" for twenty-four hours on Wednesday. This is to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act, or "SOPA," a bill which may very well end the internet as we know it. Wikipedia will go black, meaning that no one will be able to access the site.

If you want/need to view Wikipedia, you will face a problem, obviously, when the site goes down. However, using Google cache, you could very well side-step the blackout.

So let's say you're looking for... bagels on Wikipedia for some reason. On Google, all you have to do is search "Wikipedia" and whatever you wish to look up. So, enter "Wikipedia bagel" on Google.

To view the cached page, there are arrows on the side of the results. All you have to do is click/hover over the arrows, which will expand into a picture of a preview of the page. After this, just click "cached" and you'll be taken to the page that was cached by Google. Hopefully these pictures help (click on any/all the pictures for better resolution):
Arrows on the side
Additionally, Wikipedia is blacking out "English Wikipedia," which means that you can access Wikipedia in different languages. If you speak French or Spanish or whatever (or you have Google translate handy), you can access much of the same information.

Newt Gingrich and the ABC Interview

I'm not exactly sure what is on the interview that ABC just held with one of Newt Gingrich's ex-wives, but I'm guessing it's pretty explosive. How did I come to that conclusion? Well, Drudge has blaring headlines and a siren front and center on his home page:
Likewise, the subheadline blares: "Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband's career with a single interview."

Over at Free Republic, they describe that a "Civil War" is taking place at ABC over the interview and when/whether to air it. I don't know what took place, but whatever it is, it certainly sounds explosive.

Iran Warns Saudi Arabia

With the Iranian government becoming more aggressive by the hour, specifically in regards to their nuclear ambitions and threats of closing the Strait of Hormuz, Saudi Arabia has become our crucial friend in the Arab world - as they vehemently oppose Iranian nuclear power, and have promised to release oil supplies to match those lost by Iranian production slowed by sanctions.

Now, there is no love between the two countries: they practically fought a proxy war in Bahrain 12 months ago, but the Saudis strong alliance with America on the Iranian issue has caused increasing clashes between the two nations.

Remember Iran's plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States earlier this year? Or Saudi Arabia's near constant messages to Israel letting them know their airspace is theirs for any air attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Which brings us to today's news: Iran is warning Saudi Arabia not to release additional oil supplies when sanctions start neurting Iran's production, adding that such an action is "not friendly." Some would find that odd, considering the plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador could be considered unfriendly.

I have a feeling this threat is likely to cause the Saudis to stand even closer with the U.S., and allies, while beginning their own anti-Iran efforts even sooner. Because if the Saudi's are one thing, it's not gutless and they are not going to stand such belligerent threats from the likes of Iranian scumbags.

Good News: Islamists in Control of Egypt Parliament

Can't see anything bad happening here. Not like Egypt controls the Suez Canal or has 80 million people or shares a border with Israel. Nothing to see here.

“This is a one-day agreement for the day the parliament opens,” Mohamed Abou el-Ghar, the head of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party said in an interview. “We have to cooperate so the main posts in the parliament are distributed fairly to all parties, including the people who won the elections.”

Abou el-Ghar said it was possible that his own party could still be allotted one of the deputy positions if the Wafd party chose not to go along with the accord. The Social Democratic Party is part of an alliance of liberals and leftists that is expected to take the fourth most seats after the Freedom and Justice Party, the Nour party and al-Wafd.

Not good.

Pass the Gas New York!

Shale Game:
Perhaps what motivates the environmentalists’ attack on shale gas is worry about the survival of their movement. The green movement gave up on hydrocarbons years ago: it has already announced the arrival of “peak oil,” and the imminent demise of petroleum power—despite many recent discoveries of large oil and gas fields around the world—is a fundamental article of green faith. Environmentalists see shale gas as a relapse, a return to destructive habits, an end run around their self-appointed role as judge and jury for energy policy in America. And they understand that natural gas is a much harder target than dirty coal or imported oil. Further, an acceptably green technology that can compete with natural gas doesn’t exist yet, so once consumers enjoy the benefits of the shale-gas revolution, it will be almost impossible to wean them away from hydrocarbons and steer them to more expensive and less reliable technologies, such as solar and wind.

Breaking: Huntsman Withdrawing from Presidential Race; Will Endorse Mitt Romney

Campaign spokesman Tim Miller confirms to NBC News that Jon Huntsman will withdraw from the race for the GOP presidential nomination.

Huntsman plans to speak to reporters Monday at 11 a.m. ET in Myrtle Beach, S.C. A senior source tells NBC News that Huntsman will announce his support for Mitt Romney.

The former Utah governor placed third in last week's New Hampshire primary despite devoting much of his campaign resources to the state. He had already acknowledged that expectations for him in South Carolina's primary this week will be "very low."

Huntsman was routinely at the bottom of national polls, barely registering at 1 or 2 percent.

Russia: Attack on Tehran is Attack on Moscow

Great. An axis of scumbags emerges:
Russia has given Iran its bear hug and warns Israel and the West that an attack on Tehran would be considered an attack on Moscow. The threat heightens the prospect of World War III in the event of a military strike on Iran.

“Iran is our neighbor,” Russia's outgoing ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, told reporters in Brussels. “And if Iran is involved in any military action, it’s a direct threat to our security.”

Kremlin Security Council head Nikolai Patrushev accused Israel of provoking the United States towards war against Iran, the Russian Interfax news agency reported Friday. “But at the same time, we believe that any country has the right to have what it needs to feel comfortable, including Iran," he added.

Rogozin warned on Friday that more attacks on Iran could cause "a scorching Arab Summer."

Russia also has come to the defense of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, warning Western nations not to intervene in Syria with military forces. Russia is a major arms supplier to Syria and has a heavy investment in Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Japan also is drifting towards Iran, backtracking from its promise last week to back American sanctions aimed at persuading Iran to halt its unsupervised nuclear development.

Tebow Vs. New England

Denver Broncos quarter back Tim Tebow has become the most talked about football player since... I can't recall when, with this improbable winning streak and unabashed Christianity. And tonight's big playoff game between his Broncos and the number one seeded New England Patriots has everyone a watching.

The world is rooting for the 14 point underdog Tebow against the football version of Goliath, but I'm rather sure the Patriots are not only going to win strongly tonight, and look good doing it, but will be introducing Tebow to the worst defeat of his entire life - in front of the entire nation.

Now could I be wrong and Tebow pulls it off again? Absolutely. However, that's very unlikely in my honest opinion, especially since his team has been battered by injuries and the Patriots are well rested.

Regardless of outcome, tonight's game will probably be watched by more viewers than usual and will be extremely interesting to say the least.

Surprise: Joe Paterno Was Never Fired

He shielded a child molester and he gets special treatment:
Joe Paterno was never fired.

Don’t believe me? I’ll let Steve Garban, chair of the Penn State Board of Trustees, and John Surma, vice chairman of the Penn State Board of Trustees, tell you themselves:

“Coach Paterno remains employed by the University as a tenured faculty member,” they said in a statement released Thursday. “The details of his retirement are being worked out and will be made public when they are finalized. Generally speaking, the University intends to honor the terms of his employment contract and is treating him financially as if he had retired at the end of the 2011 football season.”

That’s right. Paterno is still getting paid. Penn State is still honoring his contract. And yes, they plan on sending him off into the sunset just like they would any other employee who retired after years of service to the university.

Yes, Joe Paterno was never fired.

...After 61 years at Penn State, the unthinkable had happened. Joe Paterno did not leave Penn State on his own terms. He had been fired.

Or so we thought.

2012 Set to be ‘Most Painful Year At Pump Ever’

Gasoline prices could approach $5 a gallon by Memorial Day and stay a record levels for much of the summer, according to a forecast by GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices always spike in the summer, but the 2012 Gasbuddy.com Price Outlook predicts this summer will break records.

“It looks like it might be the most painful year at the pump that we have ever seen,” senior analyst Patrick DeHaan said.

By Memorial Day, gasoline in the Chicago area could rise to between $4.60 and $4.95 a gallon–more than a dollar above the current average.

DeHaan says there are several factors that will cause the increase, and one of them is a double-edged sword.

“The economy continues to improve; it continues to push up our demand for crude oil,” he said.

Another factor is Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions. As the United States imposes sanctions, the country responds with threats to close a key oil transit pathway: The Strait Of Hormuz.

Now This is a Mama Grizzly - Mom decides to embarrass her son in effort to set him straight

Dynesha Lax has had her fill with son's criminal ways.  The teen has been arrested on numerous occasions and she was disappointed in the efforts of the court system.  She feels that they are not trying to address the real issues and help him to a more productive life.

Desperate, she decides to humiliate him by taking him outside with a sign proclaiming his criminal ways.

While I don't think this is a good idea for the kid who is not cleaning his room, but this may be the thing that helps this young man back on the right path.

I say good for you Mom.  Keep up the good fight.  Your baby is worth it.  He will always know that you loved him enough to try and save him from himself.

Perry's Plea To SC Voters

South Carolina may not be the last stand for Santorum or Gingrich, but for Perry it is.  Here is his latest plea to voters in SC to give him another look:

It is a good ad, but will change minds?

Please bookmark!

Can Freedom Survive or Is the Fix In?

The Republicans have a habit of nominating moderates who have served the Party well, or as the Soviets called them apparatchiks, or as they are called in Chicago Ward Heelers, or as they are called everywhere else Hacks.  That is how they ended up with Bob Dole and John McCain.  They had run for the nomination before and lost.  They were loyal soldiers who then went on to support the nominee.  And now, it was their turn.  That is not a very convincing campaign argument: “It’s my turn.”   
Another foolproof system employed by the Progressive Republican leadership is to let their friends in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media set the agenda and choose their candidate.  The debates these Corporations hold are aimed at causing division and starting intramural fights, and the Republicans fall for it every time.  The Progressive Media loved John McCain.  He was their “Maverick.”  They just couldn’t get enough of his “reaching across the aisles” until he had won the nomination, then he was the enemy.  It was the same thing with Dole.  Now they tell us every day that Romney is the only one who has a chance to beat Obama.  They just keep loving on Romney, can’t get enough of Mitt.  Just wait until he is the nominee and see how fast he becomes the Wall Street fat cat who plundered millions of dollars and laid waste to middle class lives.
With their 24/7 news cycle and group-think barrage of negative reinforcement the media seeks to disqualify those they fear and promote those who will maintain the status quo.
Sarah Palin was disqualified because she is damaged goods due to media attacks that were over-the-top in viciousness.  The Progressives simply couldn’t allow a woman to rise to prominence that had really built her own career and accomplished things without riding on her husband’s coattails or worshiped at the idol of the pro-abortion sisterhood.  That would have jeopardized their grip on the gender gap.
Gary Johnson was dis-invited to most of the Media sponsored and Progressive controlled debates.  He was ignored during the few debates he was invited to attend.  His poll numbers were based on polls that didn’t include his name as a choice.   The Republican leadership turned such a cold shoulder to this successful two-term Governor he has left the Party and is seeking the Libertarian nomination for President.
In the last election cycle John McCain was the darling maverick of the Progressives and he valiantly led to a stunning defeat by a novice with obvious ties to radicals.
Ron Paul is marginalized and ridiculed because of his whacky far-out ideas and policies such as obeying the Constitution.  The Progressives can’t allow anyone to seriously consider a return to government created by a bunch of old dead white guys!  No way!  No how!  To them that is absurd, so at every mention of Dr. Paul’s name there is a snicker, a joke or at least a raised eyebrow.  On every network both cable and broadcast his name is constantly followed by the conventional wisdom, “He can’t possibly get the nomination” or “He could never win a general election.”  Thus Dr. Paul is condemned to only have people who actually listen to his positions and know the Constitution as supporters, and the powers-that-be are betting they are a minority in America today.
The talking heads of the ruling chatocracy tell us over and over that Representative Paul is unelectable.  They treat his legion of loyal supporters with derision and contempt.  They use loaded words like whacky and kooky to describe his positions.  In other words they treat Dr. Paul and his supporters with the same fear and loathing they heaped upon the Tea Party.  In the Paul campaign they see a real threat to their Neo-Con / Progressive stranglehold on power.  Every other candidate will perpetuate the reign of the military/industrial complex and its freedom smothering empire of foreign intervention and phony money.  If any other candidate wins it may mean cosmetic change, but it will also mean business as usual.  With any other candidate the looting and plundering continues.
Nothing reveals the truth more clearly than this obvious attempt to steer America away from the one candidate who seeks a return to the Constitution: a return to limited government, personal liberty and economic freedom.   And the greatest disappointment of all is Fox News.  The major networks and the other cable news outlets ceased being anything except mouthpieces for the Progressive Democratic Party years ago.  But Fox held out the promise of a fair and balanced approach.  Their news anchors and reporters tried to live up to their credo and report the news allowing their viewers to decide.  But in this case they have gleefully joined in the attempt to dismiss Representative Paul as a serious contender.
From their much respected former anchor and current chief political analyst Brit Hume, their chief political correspondent “Campaign” Carl Cameron to their current anchor Bret Baier this team which offered a hope of unbiased news uses every opportunity to malign and marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters.  In 2008 it was merely Cameron who used loaded terms and sneers to ridicule Dr. Paul.  In this election cycle the entire network has piled on the anti-Paul band wagon.  Watching the lead up to the first votes was evidence enough.  Though Ron Paul scored in double digits in every poll we were told it meant nothing.  When he was near the top of polls his name wasn’t even mentioned.  Now that voting has started when he places 3rd in Iowa and 2nd in New Hampshire it is treated as a curiosity, an anomaly as if all those voters had somehow pulled the wrong lever.  Shame on you Fox News for leaving fair and balanced behind.
The establishment does everything in its power to stop the one choice that might mean an end to their precipitous rush to the precipice of power.  They believe they neutered the Tea Party in 2011 when they turned the new majority in the House to the dark side sustaining the old leadership, passing the Patriot Act, and raising the debt limit.  They feel secure treating Ron Paul and his legions of supporters as kooks advancing unworkable ideas and antiquated principles. 
Every election is important.  This one is for the soul of America.  Will we continue down the road to become just another social welfare democracy?  Will the greatest experiment in human freedom become a kleptocracy where the perpetually re-elected shovel out sweetheart deals to cronies as the cronies shovel back contributions to keep them in office?  Is our government just a huge money laundering scam with a printing press using a Ponzi scheme to keep the marks happy?  Are we fated to become the sacrificial lamb on the altar of avarice and greed?  The establishment says yes.  Their news media fellow travelers say yes.  What will we the people say?
Will we rise up and demand a return to limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom, or will we the people meekly accept our assigned role as we the sheeple?  Will the descendants of the founders wake up and reclaim their heritage, or will we believe the Progressive line that constitutionally limited government is an unworkable idea and that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is an antiquated principle?

The Land of the Free & The Home of the Brave

A video is making it rounds around the internet.  It appears that some marines that are based out of Camp Lejeune are urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban fighters. If this is true and this really is what they did these men need to face military justice.  Standing up and saying that this behavior is unacceptable is not an indication that you are a fan of the Taliban.

Sadly, many are not only justifying this behavior but they are celebrating it.  Some comments that I have seen have gone as far as to say they should have taken a "dump" on them and used the Koran as toilet paper.  They are being celebrated as heroes.

Nothing about this is heroic.  We have the greatest military force on the face of the earth.  One of the reason that we have that is discipline.  Discipline that men follow the orders of their superiors.  Discipline that teaches them about honor and service to our nation. Discipline that gives them the courage to go into a theatre of war.  A type of discipline that so many others in our society are sorely lacking, that the rest of pay high prices in the forms of entitlement programs and crime.

What these marines did was endanger the lives of men and women serving in Afghanistan.  This video will not only be seen by people in the United States. This will be seen all over the world.  It will continue the message that the likes of al Qaeda sends that we are evil, or the Iranian version of the great satan.

America has stood up to tyranny all over the world.  We have freed millions upon millions people from the likes of Hitler and other evil men.  We went toe to toe with the likes of Stalin.  We won the cold war without firing a shot because we stood by our principles.  All life has dignity and everyone deserves the chance to experience freedom.  We scoff at the other leaders of the world who deny their citizens basic human rights.  We set up radio stations around the world to give people hope that one day they would experience the same types of human rights that we espouse. We have people fighting tooth and nail in this country to protect our freedoms that many believe are eroding before our eyes.

There is evil in the world, no one can deny that.  But do we overcome it by doing this?  I believe in American   exceptionalism.  I honor the troops for the service that they provide to our country.  I expect that they live up to that honor.  This is not an American value and should not be tolerated or celebrated.

Top Iran Nuke Scientist Killed in Blast

A blast killed a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran today. The attack bears many similarities to other similar fates faced by Iranians working on the clandestine nuclear program. Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was killed when two people on a motorcycle placed a magnetic bomb to his vehicle. There has been at least one similar attack in the past, which the Islamic Republic blamed on the United States and Israel.
Roshan was a chemistry expert who was involved in building polymeric layers for gas separation, which is the use of various membranes to isolate gases. He was also deputy director of Natanz uranium enrichment plant, in central Iran, for commercial affairs. According to conservative news website mashreghnews.ir, Roshan was in charge of purchasing and supplying equipment for the facility.
Natanz is the centerpiece of Iran’s efforts to make its own nuclear fuel. But Iran said earlier this week it was expanding some operations to a bunker-like site south of Tehran protected under 300 feet of rock. The existence of the Fordo facility has been known for more than two years, but some Western officials fear the opening of the labs could be another step toward developing nuclear arms.
This comes as tensions are visibly rising. Iran is also being squeezed by new oil sanctions, which could spark conflict.

Indonesia Earthquake

Breaking news. An earthquake has hit off the coast of Indonesia. It is estimated as a 7.3 and a tsunami warning has been sent.

More from Fox:

It was centered 18 miles beneath the ocean floor.

Arief Akhir, an official with Indonesia's geological agency, said a tsunami warning has been issued.

Indonesia is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

New Hampshire Votes

Hundreds of thousands of Granite State voters are heading to the polls today to select the Republican nominee for the 2012 election, although polling and early results indicate Mitt Romney will likely be victorious by a wide margin. Strong turnout was predicted earlier, but this morning's slow trickle has some questioning that.

I personally believe Mr. Romney is going to destroy his competition with near 40%; Huntsman by the thinnest of margins places second ahead of Paul; Santorum finishes fourth; Gingrich disappointingly fifth and Perry sixth - barely polling ahead of Buddy Roemer.

There have been numerous surprises in New Hampshire before, so don't rule out anything occurring, but all paths point to Romney at this point and I don't see anything, or anyone, interfering with that.

All precints are open until eight this evening - so head out and vote! Make your voice be known, New Hampshire and be proud of your coveted first in the nation primary!

Romney Leads New Hampshire After Small Towns Vote

The small New Hampshire towns of Dixville Notch and Hart's Location have cast their traditional mid-night votes and the results are good for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney: he leads by two.

Romney - 7.
Paul - 5.
Huntsman - 4.
Gingrich - 2.
Perry - 1.
Santorum - 0.

I always enjoy seeing the results from these two small towns, which would open their polls early for railroad workers who couldn't vote during the day, and keep this unique Granite State tradition going. Besides, it gives political junkies awake at two o'clock some results to partially, half-asleep digest.

Stay tuned for more Pundit Press coverage of New Hampshire.

What Jay-Z Really Thinks of the 99%

Over the weekend Jay-Z and Beyonce became the proud parents of a healthy baby girl, Blue Ivy.  Wonderful, good for them.  It is nice to see a high-powered couple happily married and bringing children into the world.  

Jay-Z is a big supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement.  He wants to pay more taxes.  Why exactly he just doesn't fill out a 1040 EZ and pay the full 35% is beyond me, but he wants to see more tax dollars go to the "underprivileged".  Of course the meaning of underprivileged is a relative term.  

Jay-Z is also a man who decided to sell T-Shirts for the Occupy Wall Street movement on his Roca-Wear website, but didn't feel the need to share the profits with the movement.  After being publicly shamed, the shirts came down off his clothing line's website.  As far as anyone knows, no profits off what were sold was ever given to the movement.  

But, getting back to his daughter.  She made her way into the world at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.  One of the busiest hospitals in the most populated city in America.  The Carter's (Jay-Z's given name) pulled out all the stops to protect the privacy of their new bundle of joy.  While I completely agree that no woman would ever want pictures of her in the middle of child birth to show up on some rag paper for worldwide consumption.  Who can blame them.  They wanted to protect their baby.  I would want to do the same.  

So they decided to make sure no one could bother them.  They hired security and bought out the entire floor of the hospital to ensure the big moment was a private family affair.  The problem is that the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was also on that floor.

Newborn and preemies that are fighting for their lives were on that floor.  Parents who are dealing with the stress of having a child in that precarious position had to deal with their security.  

Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by BeyoncĂ©’s bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub.
Coulon griped that he’s been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple’s private security.
He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out.

He goes on
:“I know they spent $1.3 million and I'm just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not okay,” Coulon said. “My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins. She is sore. Nobody needs this.”
No brand new mom of preemies who are dealing with their babies in distress should be forced to deal with this.  It is reported that they paid $1.3 million dollars for the floor.  For that kind of money she could have gone to a more private hospital setting and given birth there instead of inconveniencing stressed out parents.  

Hey occupiers, this is what he really thinks of the 99%.  Oh, and by the way, blue is a color, not a name.

Tavis Smiley Gets a Taste of the Race Card

Tavis Smiley, a favorite of mine, is getting a taste of the leftist use of the race card.  Smiley is an activist for issues within the black community.  He wants the issues of poverty and high unemployment addressed.  While he and I agree on that, we strongly disagree with ways in which to accomplish them.  When I talk about the president and how his policies are failing, I get called a racist.  

Well, Mr. Smiley is seeing how annoying it is to have your dissent thrown back in your face.  Smiley was scheduled to be a speaker at a celebration remembering the life of Dr. Martin Luther King and he has been summarily dismissed.  Why?  He has been critical of the president.  

It doesn't seem to matter that Smiley has a point and the needs of the black community have not been addressed under this administration.  The unemployment numbers are reaching historical proportions, the levels of people becoming dependent upon food stamps is growing and has long since reached record numbers.  

The latest numbers are that more than 26% of those on food stamps are black, while they only make up 12.6% of the total population.  That is a staggering number.  Smiley has the right to be outraged at these numbers.  The black community is falling further behind, partially due to the 'great recession", but that is far from the only reason.  

But, apparently, he is not allowed to say so.  Heaven forbid a left leaning black man say anything against "The One".  The great black hope, that has done nothing to deserve that title.  He has done nothing to help that community address the real issues that are plaguing them.  Of course he is the president of the entire country, but there were expectations of what he would do for the black community.  

Both he and Michelle have not really addressed some of the real issues.  Poor educational choices (oh, that's right, they don't believe in choice except when it comes to abortion), rising unemployment, 72% of all children are born to single mothers.  Study after study has shown that babies born into single homes are far more likely to face a life of poverty and are less likely to get a college degree.  Without a good education the chances of lifting yourself out of poverty become almost non-existent.  None of these issues have been addresses by the first family.  

It has been extremely disappointing to see the first black president who by all appearances has a close family unit not addressing the problems within their own community.  He has the perfect platform to stand up and talk about being involved in your child's life.  He grew up without a dad, he knows how that can affect a child.  He knows how that can affect the financial stability within a family.  Yet he says very little.  Michelle should be out making these points, yet she has chosen to worry about obesity.  Not fitness, but obesity.  She has chosen to help create one size fits all government programs to address these issues and force the non obese to comply to them as well.  She spends little to no time addressing the family unit.  

Well Tavis, welcome to my world.  Saying anything against this president means one thing and one thing only, you are a raaaaacist.  The so called black leaders in this country are more interested in appearances than calling the president out on these issues.  Remember when Emanuel Cleaver said this?

“If (former President) Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House, there is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”
So you see Tavis, it has never been about whether the president is addressing the issues.  It is about you knowing your place.  You are not allowed to criticize his holiness.  You are not allowed to the leave the democratic plantation; pointing out that all the poor get under this president is more handouts that keep them dependent.  He is the great black hope, just ignore the fact that his hope and change has been a big fat failure.  As I said, welcome to my world.  

As an aside, maybe Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were not too far off about there comments there Tavis.  They just may have been on to something.

Arrest Photo of Sami Osmakac

Here is the arrest photo of 25 year old Sami Osmakac. As Thomas reported earlier, Osmakac was arrested on Saturday for plotting to bomb several crowded locations in the Tampa Florida area.

Who is Sami Osmakac?

News has broken in the last hour or so of an arrest related to terror charges. Yugoslav-born Sami Osmakac was allegedly plotting a shooting and bombing in Flordia. Osmakac is an Islamic extremist who 'wanted to die the Islamic way.'

Now, Osmakac is in jail, and people are trying to find out about him. Osmakac was born in the former Yugoslavia, in what is today the country of Kosovo. Kosovo is a majority-Albanian speaking country that is one of the most pro-American on the planet. American intervention in the 1990s to stop genocide has earned many admirers in the Muslim country. However, Osmakac apparently is not one of them.

By looking for a Facebook profile, we see that the potential jihadist does not have one. Usually name recognition allows for some overlap, but no one with his name is connected.

Osmakac is 25 and was arrested in Florida.

Defending Romney's Bain Tenure

The latest excuse for primary voters to oppose Mitt Romney is his tenure with Bain Capital and the dealings that took place during his near fifteen years with the company, which he helped to found.

Bain's purpose was to invest in up start companies, buy out financially troubled firms and even shut down the unsound businesses. During his tenure Romney oversaw the investment in Staples, which exploded from one locally owned store in the 1980's to well over one thousand nationwide today.

But constant success isn't possible for any company, and Bain is no exception. The company bought firms and businesses out that performed poorly, and lay offs were necessary, while other times they saved thousands of jobs. Such is your scorecard when you're investing in the private sector, where no outcome is assured.

Romney set the groundwork for Bain, which has gone on to invest or purchase Toys R Us, Domino's Pizza, The Weather Channel and The Sports Authority.

I don't see the trouble with his record at Bain. Some investments succeeded and others failed; people were hired and some were fired. That's our private sector and Romney did his best to make everyone succeed during his tenure - he doesn't deserve ridicule for taking the capitalist's risk of investing and sometimes failing.

Breaking: Global Warming Saving Earth from Ice Age Catastrophe

Remember all of the predictions of how the earth was going to increase temperature so much that it would be difficult for human life to remain? Well, if carbon emissions are raising temperatures, it may be saving our descendants from a horrible frozen wasteland.

According to some scientists now, there's a pretty good chance that the earth is entering into another ice age. But, then again, there was the prediction that the earth was going to have the ice caps melt and life become insufferable. Maybe both will happen at the same time.

In any case, it doesn't sound like the predictive measure of climatology is too much better than that of politics. Can you tell me who the president will be in 3035? No-- well, then you're a non-believer or a "political change skeptic."

"At current levels of CO2, even if emissions stopped now we'd probably have a long interglacial duration determined by whatever long-term processes could kick in and bring [atmospheric] CO2 down," said Luke Skinner from Cambridge University.

Dr Skinner's group - which also included scientists from University College London, the University of Florida and Norway's Bergen University - calculates that the atmospheric concentration of CO2 would have to fall below about 240 parts per million (ppm) before the glaciation could begin.

The current level is around 390ppm.

Well, maybe my headline was a bit off, because the scientists are also claiming that if the temperature did go up due to CO2 emissions, we're still facing a balmy, watery death, followed by freezing in a little more than 1,000 years.

Of course, a lot of these gradual changes in temperature and climate patterns could be part of a natural set of occurances. Nah, manbearpig sounds even better.

Cult of Paul

I have long contended that followers of Ron Paul have a cultish tinge to their behavior involving him, even stronger then Barack Obama's passionate base in 2008, but I have never really been able to pick through all the evidence and find that one moment to quickly sum up my point.

Until Dave Weigel's retweet from New Hampshire three hours ago:

Ron Paul protesters invade the outside of Romney's Derry, NH rally. One is reading Ron Paul's book over a megaphone.
Ahhhhhhhh, does anyone else find that last sentence odd in any way?

To me, it sounds like someone brainwashed by a cult leader and then reads his texts aloud to educate those that have not heard the master's word. It just lines up with all the other odd behavior, including the near obsession over anything Paul does and anything negative said about him by his opponents.

I'm just bringing up some valid points.

What say you?

To Buzkashi, Or Not To...

On Danny Butcher's internet radio show tonight, I mentioned the national Afghan sport buzkashi, but now I'm not sure if that was the best idea, because (1) virtually no one understood what I said and (2) they might be disgusted if they research the sport.

I'm considering a brief piece on the sport to educate people on this unique portion of Afghan culture, however, I'm not sure folks will respond to it well.

Which is why I'm leaving it up to you the reader: should I, or shouldn't write about the sport to teach Pundit Press a little more about Afghanistan's culture?

P.S. - The sport is seen being played in Rambo 3, which was based on the Afghan fight against Soviet invaders.

Huntsman's Revenge

As you have probably heard by now, a Ron Paul supporter created and posted an highly anti-Huntsman and borderline racist video depicting the former U.S. Ambassador to China as holding an agenda that is pro-chinese, even using a photo of his adopted Chinese daugther as proof of something sinister.

Mr. Paul has rightly denounced the video, but the damage is still done.

Besides from the downright stupid allegations that Huntsman is secretly anti-american, or controlled by Bejing, they not only damaged Paul by putting his name all over this sleazy video, but they went after a 12 year old girl and potentially did the last thing they wanted to - help Huntsman on the eve of voting.

With the primary in the bag for Romney and Huntsman's political future on the line, voters might just be a little more willing to make the former Ambassador the runner-up to say something against Paul's acolytes and something for Huntsman's foreign policy service to our nation. Not to mention to finally stand up against attacks on the innocent - candidate's children.

They have breathed new fire into a campaign that was hoping for double-digits and third place, while gaining them sympathy from everyone in the political world; not to mention unbelievably free press.

It's gonna interesting to see how this plays out over the next few days.

Uganda Update

The news exploded in October when it was revealed the United States would be sending 100 soldiers to train Ugandan forces in their fight to hunt down and eradicate Joseph Kony and his terrorist organization. No one saw it coming, or really understood why now, but the story has dropped out of everyone's radar.

So whats going on in Uganda?

Well, our soldiers have arrived on ground (their technically in Congo as of last month) and are training our allies to finish off the Lord's Resistance Army, mainly through better information sharing and greater technology to track the terrorists through the jungle and several borders.

And this occuring on the ground while the United Nations and African Union vowed the LRA would be eradicated in 2012 - something every human being should be able to agree with...

All I know is this: if our forces are on the ground assisting the Ugandans, and they have access to better technology now, I'm hopeful we will see the headline - KONY KILLED; LRA DEFEATED - before the year is over, and the sooner the better for the poor people of Uganda, and the bordering countries that have endured his reign of terror for nearly three decades now.

2012 What Will It Be

The professional doom peddlers would have us believe that because a certain Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012 the world is going to end.  With a bang or with a whimper they aren’t sure, but if you will just buy their book, CD, DVD, cruise, or survival pack the end of the world will somehow be better. 
I’m not sure how making piles of more money just before the world is going to end makes a great deal of sense, but then again I’m not wise enough to know the world is going to end with enough lead time to produce my spiffy world ending products that people can buy on credit so what do I know? 
Even the Mayans have been caught up in the world ending money making marketing frenzy.  They are hosting tours and throwing a year-long party even though they know, and they used to point out, that the apocryphal reference in one ancient calendar actually refers to the end of an age not the end of the world.  And the big secret anyone who has studied Mayan culture knows and the doomsday charlatans don’t want us to share is that the Mayans actually had numerous calendars and they don’t all agree.  The so-called long calendar is reset to day 0 every 1,872,000 days.  This is known as The Great Circle.  The next reset date is December 21, 2012.   Many cultures believe in ages. Even presumably educated, though not commercially prophetic, Historians speak of the Age of Enlightenment, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, etc. 
The charlatans pontificate about the advanced astronomical calculations of the Mayans.  It is true they made accurate astronomical observations and for their time were one of the most advanced pre-telescope cultures on earth.  However their understanding of these observations was not along the lines of modern cosmology which is the study of the physical universe considered as a totality of phenomena in time and space.  It was less Astronomy and more Astrology.  Ultimately the fact that one of the Mayan calendars ends this year is about as relevant to the unfolding of reality as the fact that this is also the year of the Dragon according to the Chinese calendar.  This isn’t prophecy it is Profit-cy and the theme song of this cottage industry is the cha-ching of the cash register. 
And while the calendar hanging on my wall says, “Don’t Step in the Leadership” which aptly describes what we have experienced for the last few decades. Any calendar’s predictive value for 2012 shouldn’t be taken too seriously. 
So what does 2012 hold?  Will it be boom or will it be doom?  Will it be morning in America or will it be mourning in America?  Will we reclaim our place in the sun or will we continue our precipitous slide into the dustbin of History?  The answer to all these questions is the same: it depends. 
It depends on whether the American electorate once again allows their hope for change to lead them to the hopelessness of more of the same.  Or will we rise above faction, self-indulgence and the mass hypnosis of demagogues and demand that our beloved nation return to its roots.  Will we demand that our government is once again limited, our liberties secure, and our economy free or will we fall for the siren song of “Spreading the wealth around” and sink into the morass of collectivism that has swallowed the hope of millions?  
Looking to the Left all we see is the ultimate realization of the Progressive’s generational dreams of a centrally-planned regimented society based upon the dictum of “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.”  All we can look forward to under a second Obama Administration is a continued slide into the shoddy future of redistribution, political correctness, and loss of international prestige. 
Somewhere amongst the challengers, the Republicans must find someone who is ready to re-invigorate the Constitution limiting government and securing the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.  Somehow the Republicans must see through the smoke and mirrors of the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media attempting to pick a suitable second place finisher to their previously chosen leader.   
Even before the election we are faced with a power-grab by the administration of staggering proportions. 
First there is the 2012 Defense Appropriations Bill ( NDAA 2012) which contains an amendment allowing the use of the military to arrest and confine American citizens indefinitely if they are accused of being a terrorist or of supporting terrorism. 
As we look upon the Constitution voiding legislation passed as part of the NDAA 2012, it should be pointed out, though President Obama threatened to veto the bill, according to the amendment’s co-sponsor Sen. Carl Levin the controversial language inserted into the bill were lobbied for by the Obama White House.  This was a bi-partisan effort to gut the effectiveness of the 4th and 5th amendments, the other co-sponsor being, Republican John McCain once again reaching across the aisles to limit American freedom. 
As bad as this monstrous bill is it was accompanied by a signing statement.   President Obama’s use of signing statements continues the George W. Bush legacy of de facto rule by “executive fiat.”   Often signing statements declare the intent of the executive to interpret laws in directions they were never intended to go.  At times they are used to in effect nullify the very laws just signed.   Further, Barack Obama has backtracked on his campaign promise not to use signing statements and executive orders to circumnavigate legislation signed into law. 
What this inside-the-beltway maneuvering means is that President Obama has signed a law which gives him the power to detain indefinitely American citizens arrested on American soil, a provision he lobbied for while ingenuously criticizing.  He has issued a signing statement which acknowledges the receipt of the power he sought while promising not to use it for “military” detention.  Some are calling this the martial law bill instead of the NDAA 2012.  Whatever you call it, its implications are chilling, and I must admit I never thought I would live to see such a blatant assault upon our constitutional liberties introduced let alone passed in the Congress of the United States and signed by an American president.   
Some have recently told this observer when discussing the unconstitutional aspects of this new federal power, “If they’re terrorists lock them up and throw away the key.”  How could such a provision affect you?   As one recent headline tells us, “Woman allegedly accuses man with Arabic surname of terrorist plane threat after he ends 4-day fling.”  Who might accuse who of what, might end up being a new question in a fundamentally transformed America. 
Then there is President Obama’s decision to rule without Congress.  He has announced this intention repeatedly as part of his “We can’t wait” offensive.   
He is now beginning to make recess appointments while Congress is still in session.  If this is allowed to stand the limits to the president’s power will be hard to locate.  He has taken us to war without Congress, he appoints without Congress, what is it that he cannot do? 
We don’t need Mayan calendars or other gimmicks used by the doom and gloom profit seekers to tell us that 2012 may well spin out of control on many fronts. 
Nothing sums up the Federal spending addiction which is driving us off the cliff better than the comment a Postal worker recently made to this observer after moaning about the possible closing of their tiny rural post office due to shortfalls in the USPS budget, “They print money don’t they?  Why don’t they just print some more?” 
2012, a President determined to rule without Congress, no end to the spending in sight, legislation which could easily turn into martial law, an election choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee.   2012 what will it be: boom or doom?  Will it be rebirth or revolution?  The choices we make, in this the most decisive election of our generation, will decide which way we go.  Will we re-limit our government, or will we be swallowed by a bloated federal government?

And They Say Conservatives are Anti-Science

I have heard many times that conservatives are anti-science.  This is an accusation thrown around mainly in the concept of global warming or climate change, whatever it is being called today.  We are told that the science is "settled".  Well, that really isn't true.  There are scientists who say that it isn't man-made.  So I would say that it isn't settled.  I don't automatically dismiss the idea of it, but I think that before we spend boatloads of money we should be sure.  

I have also been told that homosexuality is a genetic thing.  Sorry, but there is no proof that it is.  It may very well be, but at this point there is no "gay" gene.  From what I have read, the scientific community seems to believe that there are a variety of factors that goes into homosexuality.  
When all of the work being done to understand causes is put together, the question about what causes homosexuality seems best answered as follows. 
First, science does not have a firm answer that everyone in the field of science let alone everyone else can agree on. The origins of homosexuality are still not clearly understood by scientists.
Most researchers agree that homosexuality is multi-causal and complex; many factors contribute to the development of same-sex attraction. Most researchers, including Dr. Dean Hamer, the "gay gene” researcher who is himself a gay man, agree that homosexuality is due to a combination of social, biological, and psychological factors. Dr. Hamer has said, "Genes are hardware…the data of life’s experiences are processed through the sexual software into the circuits of identity. I suspect the sexual software is a mixture of both genes and environment, in much the same way the software of a computer is a mixture of what’s installed at the factory and what’s added by the user (P. Copeland and D. Hammer (1994) The Science of Desire. New York: Simon and Schuster.)”
 So there seems to be choice involved in it.  So I would like to know why teachers in California have decided that they are going to liberate children of gender.  Liberate you from your gender?  Gender isn't a choice.  It is biological.  This is abusive to young children. They are trying to teach them that biology doesn't matter.  The goal according to the union is that children should feel liberated from stereotypes.  So do we dress our little boys in skirts to send them to school?  Where exactly is this going to lead?  This is the slippery slope of liberalism.  We take young children who are in the process of figuring out who they are and where they belong in the world, and we confuse them more than they already are.  We get them questioning who they are and the values that they are being taught at home by their parents, who by the way should be teaching those values.  

Gender is never choice.  It is biological.  There are hormones that are different between males and females, our body parts are different, we have different functions when it comes to reproduction.  Teaching children that is basic science.  Gender is not in your head.  It isn't a state of mind.  You have a penis or you don't.  Even if you decide to have surgery to "change" your gender, it cannot be done without changing your hormones.  Which says that it is biological.  It further proves that it is science.  

We are blurring the lines between males and females and what is the end game here?  It wasn't all that long ago that homosexuality was considered a mental illness.  That all changed when people started to "normalize" it.  While some may think that I am going a bridge too far with this comparison but I truly believe this is just another step in trying to normalize pedophilia the same way that they normalized homosexuality.  

If you are the parent of young children in the public school system in California you need to stand up to this nonsense.  The school system has no right to "liberate" your child of their God-given gender.  This is just one more way that the far left is interfering with the parent child relationship and pushing an agenda that is detrimental to the core family unit in this country.  It must be stopped.  

The only real cure to this is to get a movement going to get more conservatives involved in the school systems, the unions, and the school boards.  We should be teaching our children how to think critically, not that their gender is a state of mind.
