The Philadelphia Story
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/15/2013 5:40:54 PM

The video above shows a Philadelphia union keeps non-union engineering contractors off the premises. He tries to sneak past them to do his job and they crush him against the fence until he passes out. Then they laugh at him. When not similarly engaged they also use tire-busters and direct threats. Maybe that’s not news. What is news is that the video was collected by the Pestronk brothers, a pair of developers, who used it and similar surveillance videos to fight back. No they didn’t go to the police. They took the videos to the public.

There is a link to the original story in the Philly mag.

Anthony Weiner: I´m "100 Percent
Not" Sexting Right Now,
Deleted Everything from Past Affairs
NBC 4[New York, NY], by Andrew Siff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/3/2013 1:45:06 PM     Post Reply
Anthony Weiner tells NBC 4 New York he is "100 percent not" having any type of online relationships with anyone now, and says for the first time he has not kept any records of his past lewd affairs. "I don´t have any of the records," Weiner said in an interview Friday. "I deleted everything." A woman came forward last month with explicit photos of Weiner and messages from him, revealing that the married mayoral candidate´s affairs had continued long after he resigned from Congress in 2011. Since then, the embattled Democrat has sought to turn the conversation

On the Return of a
Long-Lost Library Book,
the World Rejoices
Atlantic, by Alexander Nazaryan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/3/2013 1:01:49 PM     Post Reply
A woman walks into her local library and hands the librarian a book. He takes it gingerly, seeing that the book is old. He wonders if the woman who is returning it has been careless with the volume. Not so, it turns out. The book was actually taken out from that same library by the woman´s grandfather, then stored in an attic, which she had recently cleaned out. The book — which is about gardening, or Napoleon, or maybe both — has remained intact, sandwiched between dusty yearbooks and issues of Life magazine.

Political handicappers in the nation´s capital expressed surprise last month when former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, seen as the Democrats´ best hope to hold on to the seat of retiring Sen. Max Baucus -- and with it, possibly keep control of the Senate -- decided not to run for re-election next year. But in Big Sky country there wasn’t much surprise when Schweitzer said: “This is my home, not Washington, D.C. I don’t want a job where I have to wear a suit and my dog isn’t welcome.” For much of July, I decided to step out

   

 

  


 
Major Hasan Explains
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/3/2013 6:10:34 AM     Post Reply
How frustrating it must be for Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood mass murderer, a self-described Soldier of Allah, to have his mighty act of religious defiance classified as “workplace violence” by the Obama administration! Yesterday Major Hasan sent several documents to Fox News, in which he explained himself as a jihadist. While much briefer, they can reasonably be compared to Mein Kampf, which Hitler, like Hasan, wrote while incarcerated. You can read some of the documents here. Hasan believes that the murders he committed are entirely logical if only one understands Islam.

Kevyn Orr: How Detroit Can Rise Again

Detroit- What do northwest Washington, D.C., South Beach Miami and upper Manhattan have in common? Less than 50 years ago, the now vibrant communities didn´t look much different from most of Detroit, says emergency manager Kevyn Orr—whom Gov. Rick Snyder tapped in March to revive the broken Motor City. This is what gives him hope that Detroit can stage a comeback. "D.C. in ´91 was still burned out from the 1968 riots," recalls the youthful 55-year-old attorney who worked for 22 years in D.C., at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Resolution Trust Corporation, Justice Department and Jones Day law firm.

Whitey Bulger, you dirty rat! In the end, he didn’t have the stones to take the stand. Not much of a surprise, but quite a disappointment, the trial ending not with a bang but a whimper. “I didn’t get a fair trial,“ he told the judge, “This was a sham. Do what youse want with me.” Don’t worry, weese will. But what’s up with the word “youse,” Whitey? You’re supposed to be Irish, or so your lawyer Jay Carney said in his opening statement approximately 65 witnesses ago, 50 or so of whom swore under oath Whitey was indeed a rat.

Al Qaeda was in the final stages of planning an unspecified attack in Yemen, according to a CNN report that seems to explain the widespread, planned closures of U.S. embassies across the Middle East on Sunday. CNN reports: A senior Yemeni national security official told CNN that the government was "on high alert against possible attacks in the days to come. The threat appears much worse than it has in a long time," the Yemeni official said. According to three sources, the United States has information that al Qaeda in Yemen was in the final stages

Clouds Spread to Democratic Side
of Virginia Governor’s Race
New York Times, by Trip Gabriel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/3/2013 5:25:15 AM     Post Reply
For months, the governor’s race in Virginia has unfolded beneath a cloud of scandal over the Republican incumbent that spread to his would-be Republican successor, Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II. But now a potential scandal also threatens to distract the campaign of the Democratic candidate, Terry McAuliffe. An electric car company Mr. McAuliffe founded is a target of an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, government documents show. The venture, GreenTech Automotive, was already a flash point because of the failure of enthusiastic promises of jobs made by Mr. McAuliffe, the former Democratic fund-raiser known for his showmanship

Inside Colin Powell’s

Maybe he should’ve been less diplomatic. Colin Powell just couldn’t give his flirty Romanian pal the heave-ho, despite her numerous needy rants at the bitter end of their racy relationship, the pair’s hacked e-mail exchanges show. Instead, the married Powell, 76, continued to keep the line open throughout 2010 and 2011, as European Parliament member Corina Cretu, 46, whined in her e-mails about their past cyber-flirtations — and scolded him for being slow and icy in his replies. The former secretary of state urged Cretu to delete all the suggestive e-mails as soon as he discovered that the notorious hacker

Obama to America: ‘Bleep You’
PJ Media, by Tom Blumer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/3/2013 5:08:47 AM     Post Reply
It has become increasingly clear since President Barack Obama’s reelection that he and his administration intend to govern as they wish, pushing as far and as fast as they can against constitutional and other legal limits which have constrained previous administrations. It has also become more than obvious that it is willing to hurt those who might get in their way, and to exploit others whose help they can co-opt to accomplish their agenda. In essence, Obama and his administration are telling America’s institutions, its states, its legal framework, and Americans in general: “Bleep you.”

Granted, virtually everyone understands the broad strokes of what happened at the IRS over the last few years, yet Democrats keep dredging up false equivalencies — so it’s useful to trumpet additional data like this. Via NPR: A House Ways and Means Committee staff analysis of the applications of 111 conservative and progressive groups applying for tax exempt status found conservative applicants faced, “more questions, more denials, more delays,” says committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich. That is, when the IRS sent groups letters asking for further information, conservative groups were asked more questions — on average,

American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.

About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months? I hope something changes.” The minimum wage is $7.25 nationally and $8.25

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested on Friday morning that the tea party movement is comprised of the same types of people who fought against the civil rights movement during the 1960s. Speaking with the Daily Beast, Rangel said of the movement: “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. He added that the tea party movement can be defeated similar to how the civil rights movement eradicated Jim Crow mentality: “It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

Congressional investigators this week released emails suggesting that staff at the Federal Election Commission have been engaged in their own conservative targeting, with help from the IRS´s infamous Lois Lerner. This means more than just an expansion of the probe to the FEC. It´s a new link to the Obama team. In May this column noted that the targeting of conservatives started in 2008, when liberals began a coordinated campaign of siccing the federal government on political opponents. The Obama campaign helped pioneer this tactic. In late summer of 2008, Obama lawyer Bob Bauer took

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.

I think she’s one of the most fascinating women of our time and this world,” confessed Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, as part of his announcement that his network is making a miniseries about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane in the starring role. Words are funny things. For instance, G.K. Chesterton once remarked that that the word “good” has many uses: “For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot but not necessarily a good man.” So it is,
