It is neither partisan nor mad
to predict a Romney victory.
Mitt still has the X Factor

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/5/2012 5:49:21 AM

This weekend, I must confess to having had doubts about Romney’s chances of winning. Repeated bad news about Ohio and Obama’s post-Sandy bump left me hitting the Scotch and sticking pins in my Nate Silver voodoo doll. But on Sunday night's X Factor, the good Lord sent me a sign. All the acts had been voted through to next week’s round except for Kye Sones (talented singer/former chimney sweep) and Rylan Clark (tone deaf gay guy). I put a bet out on Twitter: “If Rylan wins, Romney wins.” Why? Because the poll analysts would give both

Bad news about Ohio?

What bad news? That Romney had record breaking numbers come to his rallies? I am of the opinion that articles like this are more deceptive and damaging than articles where the lies are so blatant.

In this piece, there is faint hope stated after two false talking points. Where is the good in that?

No, global warming did NOT cause
the storms, says one of the Met
Office´s most senior experts
Daily Mail [UK], by David Rose    Original Article

One of the Met Office’s most senior experts yesterday made a dramatic intervention in the climate change debate by insisting there is no link between the storms that have battered Britain and global warming. [Snip] Professor Collins told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’ His statement carries particular significance because he is an internationally acknowledged expert on climate computer models and forecasts, and his university post is jointly funded

About 100,000 utility customers have awoken to a fifth day without power in South Carolina. Most of them lost power Wednesday or early Thursday when an ice storm swept across southern and eastern parts of the state. Power crews have been out since working 16-hour shifts to try to get the electricity back on. Sunday morning, the state´s 20 electric cooperatives, serving mostly rural areas, had 69,000 customers still without power. South Carolina Electric & Gas reported 22,700 outages and Duke Energy still had 8,400 customers without power. At the peak of the storm, about 350,000 customers lost power across

Hundreds of British jihadis have returned from fighting in Syria, sparking a terror alert in Britain. Senior security officials have said that around 250 British based ´extremist tourists´ have returned home, and are now suspected of wanting to carry out attacks here. The figure is five times higher than previously thought and includes several ´veterans´ who have fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan. MI5 and police have already intercepted an alleged serious plot by jihadis returning from the war torn region last Autumn. They were said to be planning a Mumbai-style gun attack on civilians in a crowded place, possibly London.

Paratrooper Conrad Lewis and the mongrel dog he adopted on patrol were constant companions amid the dangers of Afghanistan’s Helmand province. Such was their attachment that when Private Lewis was killed by a sniper’s bullet, his grieving family did all they could to arrange for the animal to be brought back to the UK to live with them. [Snip] The charity, called the Nowzad Dogs Animal Shelter after the Afghan town in which it was founded by a Royal Marine, runs the only dog refuge operating in Afghanistan, taking in hundreds of the country’s stray and abandoned pets. Since it opened it has arranged for dozens of dogs such

To Churchill and all Britons of a certain age they were ´The Few’, that band of brave men and women who kept Hitler’s Luftwaffe at bay during the dark days of the Battle of Britain. [Snip] Visiting Goodwood, close to former RAF Westhampnett--from where many of the Battle of Britain sorties flew--the Prince, himself a helicopter pilot and co-gunner during the more recent campaign in Afghanistan, inspected a Spitfire fighter, one of the aircraft which did so much in defending these islands. During his visit, which saw him sit briefly in the cockpit of the rare two seater model, Prince Harry met Joy Lofthouse, 91, who, as a member of the

UK weather: it´s not as weird

Inevitably, in the wake of all these dramatic storms and floods, the usual suspects, eagerly abetted by the BBC, Channel 4 News and Sky, piled in to claim that the latest “extreme weather events”--coupled with blizzards in 49 of the 50 American states--are clear evidence of man-made global warming. At their forefront, proclaiming that “all the evidence suggests there is a link to climate change”, was that arch-climate proponent Dame Julia Slingo, chief scientist at the Met Office; that same Met Office that, back in November, was predicting that “precipitation” for the three months between December and February was likely

British people are at their best when the chips are down--and the last few weeks have sorely tested us. The floods have brought misery to vast swathes of the country, sabotaging railways, cutting off power and leaving whole villages stranded in water. [Snip] They have done a remarkable job. Take the marvellous Flooding on the Levels Action Group. Composed of volunteers who could not bear to see their neighbours suffer, they have helped to distribute torches, blankets, food and more than 100 tons of sandbags. Their most impressive display of coordinated action was the evacuation of 850 cows from flooded

Pediatric patients at the Medical University of South Carolina Children´s Hospital got surprise valentines from U.S. Sen. Tim Scott on Friday. Scott, R-S.C., delivered valentines, carnations and pencils to children at MUSC for a third year in a row. He stopped for a few minutes to play a video game with 8-year-old Shi´Nara Grant outside her hospital room. He asked Mack Shieder, 5, who is battling leukemia, about his favorite football team and the Star Wars T-shirt he was wearing. "Do you have a favorite character in Star Wars?" Scott asked.

Michelle Obama has sent her husband a virtual Valentine--for the whole world to see--since they won´t be spending the holiday together. ´Hey Barack, I´ll always be your valentine! #HappyValentinesDay - mo,´ she wrote, attaching a collage photo of the couple goofing off. Even though a tweet may not be the most personal way to get her message across, at least Mrs Obama signed the tweet herself. The first couple usually adds their initials at the end of the tweet in order to distinguish which ones they write as opposed to those written by their staff. When Mr Obama posted his

Online trolls have serious personality issues such as Machiavellianism, one of the biggest studies into trolling has found. Researchers say that online commenters display traits that are Narcissistic, psychopathic, and sadistic and the worse the problems, the longer the person spent online. They found the most common trait was to exhibit sadistic behaviour. [Snip] They said the trolls displayed what is known as the ´Dark Tetrad´ of personality in two tests developed. ´Both studies revealed similar patterns of relations between trolling and the Dark Tetrad of personality: trolling correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism, using both enjoyment ratings and

Snow and ice weary southerners received another jolt Friday night when an earthquake struck the region. The 4.1-magnitude quake was centered in Edgefield, South Carolina, but was also felt in North Carolina and Georgia--it occurred at 10.23p and lasted about 10 seconds, according to witnesses. [Snip] Though minor in scope, USGS Geophysicist Dale Grant called the event a ‘large quake for that area.’ Despite being large for the area, 4.1-magnitude quakes do not often cause significant damage. It did knock out land line phones in at least one area of Edgefield, a local told Fox Carolina.

First Lady Michelle Obama apparently halted private-jet traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing while President Obama headed to California. Michelle, with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, was expected to touch down in Aspen Friday to spend Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend away from her husband, who was meeting late Friday with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mrs. Obama’s arrival amid tight security was expected to delay the arrival of other wealthy vacationers on private jets at the Colorado ski resort.

Jonathan Turley, faithful Obama supporter and liberal professor of constitutional law at Sandra Fluke´s alma mater, Georgetown University Law School, is sounding the alarm that "a system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism." Question for Mr. Turley: what kind of constitutional law professor votes for an inexperienced community organizer who believes that the U.S. Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" in the first place?

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen. Mike Lee - However, he said critics would have a tough time winning in court because Congress lacks

A growing group of Ted Cruz’s Republican Senate colleagues are infuriated with his tactics. So frustrated was Arizona Senator John McCain with the latest, forcing fellow Republicans to take a politically risky vote on lifting the debt ceiling, that yesterday he tweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial accusing the Texas lawmaker of instigating “needless drama that helps to explain why Republicans remain a minority.” (Snip)Cruz’s insistence Feb. 12 on a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation lifting the nation’s borrowing cap foiled his party leadership’s plan to let the measure move forward with only Democratic votes.

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

Presidential Library, her voice breaking as she recounted the “agony of Vietnam” that engulfed Lyndon Baines Johnson and the pain she feels to this day of witnessing his presidency judged through the prism of a failed war. “Nobody wanted that war less than Lyndon Johnson,” said Ms. Johnson, 66, who is the president’s younger daughter. “No matter how hard he tried, he didn’t seem to be able to get out of that quagmire.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

Jakarta, Indonesia - Climate change may be the world´s "most fearsome" weapon of mass destruction and urgent global action is needed to combat it, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, comparing those who deny its existence or question its causes to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials in Jakarta, Kerry laid into climate change skeptics, accusing them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay measures needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

(snip) The question - "Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth" - was answered incorrectly by 26 per cent of respondents. Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals and just 39 percent answered correctly that "the universe began with a huge explosion".

Washington - Mitt Romney told GOP pals Sunday to drop talk of ex-President Bill Clinton’s sexual shenanigans if wife Hillary makes her own White House bid. “I don’t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if Hillary Clinton decides to run for President,” the 2012 Republican nominee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” citing the former First Lady’s own record, including stints as a U.S. senator from New York and as secretary of state. Romney also noted that the years of Bill Clinton’s presidency “were, by and large, positive economic times for the country.” The former Massachusetts governor added that Hillary Clinton
