The uncanny power of words has featured prominently in recent news. Politico describes how Berkeley became "a hotbed of violence in the Trump era" in response to witches like Ann Coulter. (Snip) Apparently there are ideas, like that incantations that Coulter is likely to utter, that are dangers in themselves; that summon devils from the vasty deep and provoke an involuntarily reaction in whoever is unfortunate to hear them. When Howard Dean tweeted "hate speech is not protected by the first amendment" he feared a danger which does things to people from which they must be defended against. The need

Okay then, let´s talk about gun possession, for instance, in Venezuela perhaps. It would now appear that all the Hillary and Obama peole of the world would confiscate YOUR gun to give to one of their buddies. It is all becoming clear to me now.

Richard lost me on this one. Some cogent points, but culture is AI and drones are, what?

Normally like his stuff, this one seemed like someone else´s work.

WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson amplified calls for a special prosecutor to oversee the Russian meddling probe, asserting that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cannot be trusted to oversee a fair investigation. “I do not have any faith that Mitch McConnell, on the basis of his statement today on the floor of the Senate, will let a full investigation be done by legislative committees controlled by his office," Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times and other news outlets this afternoon. "I believe that’s why we need an independent special prosecutor.” Nelson, facing re-election next year, said the Senate Intelligence Committee review

TAMPA — University of South Florida football player LaDarrius Jackson was arrested for the second time in a month Wednesday after a second woman accused him of sexual assault. Jackson, a 22-year-old junior defensive end, turned himself in at Orient Road Jail and is again facing charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment, the same charges filed in his May 1 arrest by USF police. He also has been dismissed from the football team. He had been suspended from team activities after the first arrest. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff´s Office, the latest report of an assault occurred during a

The Associated Press is generally a mouthpiece for Democratic Party talking points. That is the case as to voter ID, as this rather pathetic piece shows: “In Wisconsin, ID law proved insurmountable for many voters.” (Snip) So the AP makes it clear from the beginning that its article is intended as a refutation of Republican claims, and a defense of the Democrats’ position on voter ID. Let’s see how well the Associated Press makes the Democratic Party’s case. "By one estimate, 300,000 eligible voters in the state lacked valid photo IDs heading into the election; it is unknown how many people

USA Today characterizes the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey as inevitable. "The surprise is it took so long," it wrote. He tried to occupy a No Man´s Land in a Washington increasingly divided along party lines and caught in a crossfire. "Comey had been a dead man walking for some time. He was a director without a constituency. He had tried to strike a balance in a sharply divided political environment and wound up alienating both sides. He had to go." Comey, if you are to believe Hillary, is the man who stole the election from her. In November of

Emmanuel Macron has been elected president of France, "delivering a resounding victory to the unabashedly pro-European former investment banker and strengthening France´s place as a central pillar of the European Union". Of equal significance is the forthcoming Korean presidential election whose frontrunner, Moon Jae-in, could take a more conciliatory approach to North Korea´s Kim Jong-un. (Snip) Ironically South Korea´s sea change is driven by many of the same economic worries which roiled France.

The limits of human endurance are now being tested in Venezuela. The Wall Street Journal reports: “Venezuela is starving.” "[Venezuela] was once Latin America’s richest, producing food for export. Venezuela now can’t grow enough to feed its own people in an economy hobbled by the nationalization of private farms, and price and currency controls." Socialism, in other words. "Venezuela has the world’s highest inflation—estimated by the International Monetary Fund to reach 720% this year—making it nearly impossible for families to make ends meet.

BOSTON — Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was a member of the Bloods street gang and was disciplined for having gang paraphernalia, according to newly released documents related to the investigation into his prison suicide. A death report released Friday lists the Bloods under Hernandez´s gang profile and says Hernandez was disciplined for having "STG" paraphernalia. In prison, "STG" stands for Security Threat Group, a euphemism for gangs. Hernandez, a former New England Patriots tight end, was found April 19 hanging from a bed sheet in his cell in a maximum-security prison, where he was serving a life sentence for a 2013

KATHMANDU, Nepal -- Family and supporters honored Sunday the 85-year-old climber who died attempting to regain his title as the oldest person to scale Mount Everest, while Nepali officials stressed the need to limit the age for such a daunting physical challenge. The death of Min Bahadur Sherchan has revived concerns about allowing elderly people to attempt scale mountain peaks where the conditions are harsh and oxygen level low. Under Nepali law, climbers have to be at least 16 years old to climb Everest, but there´s no upper limit. "It is very necessary to immediately bring that age limit law. If there had

Steven Holcomb was simultaneously ordinary and remarkable. America´s best bobsled pilot was a self-described computer geek who would rub elbows with Hollywood stars. He was never exactly in the best of shape, yet was a world-class athlete. He attempted suicide years ago, then revealed his story with hopes of helping others. He was a man who nearly went blind, then became an Olympic gold medalist. His life was the epitome of a bobsled race, filled with twists and turns. It came to a most unexpected end Saturday in Lake Placid, New York, when he was found dead in his room at the Olympic

Donald Trump´s can-do optimism is his most prepossessing trait. As Georgetown´s Joshua Mitchell observed just before the election, positive thinking has been his life-long creed: (Snip) That is how Trump´s much-maligned musings about the Civil War should be understood. "why couldn´t that one have been worked out?," he asked in a radio interview. "I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart." No sane person could fail to ask why 700,000 Americans (and nearly 30% of Southern military-age men) had to

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made a fool of himself again this week. The commish, he of the $34 million annual salary, was asked on ESPN´s Mike & Mike radio show if he was willing to consider allowing players to use marijuana for medical reasons, especially pain relief. Here´s what Goodell said: "You´re ingesting smoke, so that´s not usually a very positive thing that people would say. It does have addictive nature. There are a lot of compounds in marijuana that may not be healthy for the players long term. All of those things have to be considered." What´s wrong with what Goodell said? Let

TAMPA — A replacement judge slashed the bail Friday for a USF football player whose scolding by a different judge earlier in the week drew national attention. LaDarrius Jackson, accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him Monday in a campus residence hall, was left to raise $9,500 instead of $102,000 to get out of the Hillsborough County Jail. Video of his first appearance before County Judge Margaret Taylor went viral, after she castigated Jackson and USF´s first-year football coach Charlie Strong from the bench. She has since recused herself. The second judge, Lawrence Lefler, lowered the bail amount and

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) said Wednesday he does not think mismanagement of the Hillary Clinton email scandal was "sufficient rationale" for President Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey. Trump fired Comey on Tuesday following a recommendation earlier in the day from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who told the president that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommended the dismissal. Rosenstein wrote in a letter that he "cannot defend the director´s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton´s emails." CNN reporter Manu Raju caught up with McCain the day after the bombshell development and asked the senator

NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump. The clip features Holt conducting an interrogation-like interview in which the NBC personality interrupted Trump nine times and spoke over the president on many of those occasions. The short clip is part of a 31-minute White House interview set to air Thursday night on NBC Nightly News. (Video) In the clip, Holt can be seen questioning almost every statement made by Trump. In one instance, Holt asked Trump about his May 9 letter ousting F.B.I Director James Comey

One of the U.S. Senate´s newest members is proposing to shake up the chamber by mandating "diversity" quotas for everything from staffs to committees. A proposal by Nevada’s freshman Democratic senator, Catherine Cortez Masto, could mimic efforts in corporate America. Large companies across the country, particularly those in Silicon Valley, have been under intense pressure to hire more minorities. Cortez Masto thinks it should be a Congressional priority, too. “We should be mandating diversity in our committees, mandating diversity in our hiring practices, mandating diversity throughout the United States Senate,”

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is demanding that Attorney General Jeff Sessions have no involvement in selecting the next FBI director. "This attorney general should not oversee the hiring process of the next FBI director. His role will jaundice the entire process if it hasn’t already," Schumer said Thursday. Schumer argued that Sessions helping to pick a successor for James Comey, whom President Trump fired on Tuesday, would violate the attorney general’s pledge to recuse himself from any investigation related to Russia´s involvement in the U.S. presidential election. Whoever succeeds Comey will oversee the bureau´s probe into Russia´s meddling and potential ties

John McCain (R-Ariz.) told a group of foreign diplomats and experts Tuesday night. Although McCain did not directly accuse the White House of firing Comey to thwart the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible Russia ties, he did say that if that was the intention, it would fail. “This scandal is going to go on. I’ve seen it before,” McCain told a meeting of the Munich Security Conference core group. “This is a

The left in particular likes its cardboard heroes and cartoon villains drawn in bright Sharpie colors, and Comey insists on jumping back and forth between one role and the other like a movie stuntman leaping the roofs from northbound to southbound train. Comey´s not going to charge Hillary? What a stand-up guy! The very model of a dedicated public servant! Comey´s re-opened the Hillary investigation? What a partisan hack!

An update on Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's conversation with Hillary Clinton over Dr. Muhammad Yunus' removal from Grameen Bank. While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business. The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank.

Washington ground to a halt Wednesday as Democrats exploded over the firing of FBI Director James B. Comey, laying out a list of demands they said must be met before President Trump and Congress regain a sense of normalcy. Several Democrats and liberal activists raised the prospect of impeachment, but most lawmakers set their sights lower, saying they wanted to at least preserve and protect the ongoing FBI probe into Trump campaign figures’ dealings with Russia. Convinced that Mr. Comey’s firing was an attempt to kneecap that probe, Democrats said they want the decision on naming an independent prosecutor stripped
