Are Polar Bears Really Disappearing?
Wall Street Journal, by Zack Unger

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/9/2013 1:05:25 PM

I knew I was in trouble when the biologist from the Manitoba Conservation Department sat down next to me. "The bears look good," he said. "I haven´t seen them this fat in years." We´d both been hanging around the tiny town of Churchill, Manitoba, ground zero for everything having to do with polar bears. Every fall the town is overrun with bears waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze. The bears, in turn, are trailed by herds of tourists, tour guides, scientists, green-leaning types and B-list celebrities—all looking for communion with The Most Important Animal of Our Time.

The population is growing and they´re getting fat. Rats. All those poor PhD´s who live for the demise of another species. It must be so hard for them.

I hate those stinking polar bears. Black bears and even Grizzly bears normally avoid people. But to a polar bear you are lunch. It doesn´t have to sit by a hole in the ice waiting for a seal to come up for air. All it has to do is out run you. And when you go out of the igloo to the mail box they are waiting for you. Plus being lily white they are racist bears. Give me a brown, black, or even a panda bear. Those Russian circuses always have brown and black bears for a reason. The only thing a polar bear wants to do is eat you.

Animals highest on the food chain are the last to be at risk, and the polar bear is the highest, other than an armed human. Unarmed humans are food.

The information to know polar bear populations are increasing has been available for years. Its just that it isn´t popular to know this fact. I did the research about five years ago, checking on the various populations as recorded on web resources. They were growing then and all indications were they had been growing for some time.

Several years ago (six or seven) I read a Canadian report about these bears. There were eleven distinct population groups, and of those nine were stable, one was growing and one was declining. The reason for the decline was there were so damn many of them harassing/killing people that the gov´t declared a hunting season on them.

I´m glad that they are not going to be extinct as that hurts the world. I just wish the doomsayers would become extinct and that only truth is spoken.

U.S. Seniors Have Realigned

Gallup.com, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/26/2014 12:35:38 PM     Post Reply
PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S seniors -- those aged 65 and older -- have moved from a reliably Democratic group to a reliably Republican one over the past two decades. From 1992 through 2006, seniors had been solidly Democratic and significantly more Democratic than younger Americans. Over the last seven years, seniors have become less Democratic, and have shown an outright preference for the Republican Party since 2010.(Snip for graphic)In 1992, 53% of senior citizens, on average, identified as Democrats or said they were independents but leaned Democratic, while 39% identified as Republicans or leaned Republican, resulting in a 14-percentage-point Democratic

Last week I wrote that President Obama, having been bested by Vladimir Putin at virtually every turn, has retreated into a world of his own making. “He’s created a fantasy world where disengagement translates into influence and we’re strong and Putin is weak,” I said. I’m here to report that Mr. Obama’s dissociative disorder has become more, not less, acute. As evidence I would point to an exchange the president had yesterday with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, in which Mr. Obama made this claim: ?

Malaysia Flight 370 pilot´s friend says
he was in ‘no state of mind to be flying’

Doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370´s pilot was devastated over his wife´s decision to move out and could have taken the plane on a "last joyride," according to a long-term friend. The unnamed pal, also a pilot, revealed Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was seriously "rattled" by his family problems and shouldn´t even have been at the controls of the Boeing 777. "He´s one of the finest pilots, around and I´m no medical expert, but with all that was happening in his life Zaharie was probably in no state of mind to be flying," he told the NZ Herald.

It’s been years in the making, but all the hard work has paid off: “Koch,” as in the surname of the energy-billionaire brothers David and Charles, has become the liberal “abracadabra” of 2014 — the magic word that mesmerizes liberals into parting with their money and giving it to Democrats. What’s especially interesting about it is how conscious Democrats appear to be that they’ve helped create this two-headed monster to scare their own people into coughing up dollars they might not give otherwise. “Koch” now joins “Rove” and “Newt” in the Liberal Fund-raising Hall of Fame — in the very

ABC’s Jonathan Karl touched a nerve when he asked President Obama whether Mitt Romney might have been on to something with his observation that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe. The question came in Obama’s press conference at the Hague yesterday. Obama went into epic BS mode. At the Weekly Standard, Daniel Halper transcribes this quotable quote: With respect to Mr. Romney’s assertion that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe, the truth of the matter is that America has a whole lot of challenges. Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neigbors, not out of

Wendol Jarvis knew that it was perfect the moment he saw it. As the founder of the Iowa Film Office, Jarvis had spent weeks toward the end of 1987 and into early 1988 scouring his state trying to find a suitable location to shoot Shoeless Joe, a film adaptation of the W. P. Kinsella novel of the same name—a whimsical fable about baseball and familial bonds. The book told the story of a man who builds a ball field on his Iowa farm after a voice instructs him to, and who then receives a visit from a group of deceased,

NOVO-OZERNE, Ukraine—Its escape to the open seas blocked by sunken ships, the Ukrainian minesweeper Cherkassy weaved and lurched in a narrow gulf on Tuesday afternoon with a symbolic, if inevitably brief, distinction: the last Ukrainian military vessel in Crimea not yet seized by the Russian navy. From the banks of the gulf cutting into the western flank of the peninsula from the Black Sea, the Russians watched the trapped, constantly moving ship, then dispatched patrol boats to chase and bump the stubborn vessel in several unsuccessful capture attempts. All other Ukrainian vessels blockaded in the same gulf, known as the Donuzlav

   

 



 
Religious Bias and the Washington Post
Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/26/2014 5:32:12 AM     Post Reply
The Washington Post–which years ago published a story referring to followers of the Christian right as “largely poor, uneducated, and easy to command”–yesterday published a front-page story titled, “High court with vocally devout justices set to hear religious objections to health-care law.” Get it? The story, written by the Post’s Supreme Court reporter Robert Barnes, is meant to focus attention on–and raise our concerns about–whether justices with deep (and vocal) religious faith can rule fairly on a religious liberties case. (Two cases, including Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., will be argued before the Supreme Court today. Hobby Lobby is a

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Obama on Russia: What, Me Worry?

Yesterday, when I wrote about President Obama´s comment that Europe was "not a battleground between East and West," I made the following conclusion: Of course, Obama was able to get away with ridiculing Romney for stating that Russia is our "number one geopolitical foe" during the 2012 campaign. But if in 2014, Obama believes Europe isn´t a battleground between East and West and that the Cold War hasn´t resumed, then he probably still believes Russia isn´t our number one geopolitical foe. In which case, God help us. Well, I hope the Almighty has a plan because today, Obama said almost exactly that at

Rand Paul’s pandering and

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article

“Political courage” is among the most overused and misused terms in political conversation. The idea that anything involving a well-paying, high visibility job with a good salary, plenty of perks and continual (if unearned) praise could be “courageous” is a bit of a stretch, especially in a time of real and extraordinary courage from people in all walks of life, especially those in our military (every one of whom volunteered). That said, we should not fail to distinguish between, shall we say, principled risk taking and timidity or simple pandering. When the shutdown squad claimed they were being politically courageous

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
