What next ? ban nicotine patches ? strip search to enforce it ?

New York City Council votes to ban e-cigarettes

Miguel Martin, president of Logic, the U.S.'s third-largest e-cigarette maker, says he's disappointed in the New York City Council's position.
New Yorkers who've latched on to electronic cigarettes to get their nicotine fix at the local bar had their hopes snuffed out Thursday as the New York City Council overwhelmingly voted to add the smokeless smokes to the city's ban on smoking in public places.
Even though the electronic cigarettes don't produce secondhand smoke, the council voted 43-8 to ban the use of e-cigarettes in restaurants, bars, city parks and any other places where smoking is already outlawed.

Force ? How many people will actuall tell them ?

Apparently, liberals have a plan to bring an end to school shootings: Make disclosure of firearm ownership mandatory for all families enrolled in public education. According to the Missouri Torch:
A pre-filed bill in the Missouri Senate would require parents of public school students to report to the school if they own a gun.
Why don’t we just cut right to the chase, and write a law instructing would-be mass-shooters to report their intentions well ahead of time? Or, heck, we could just outlaw the act of killing innocent school children. And I’m sure criminals, owners of illegal weapons, and potentially dangerous sociopaths will be more than happy to follow along with such equally ridiculous legislation. Right?
More than being an egregious violation of personal privacy, the bill highlights the impotence of progressive “solutions” to violence conducted with firearms. Compulsory disclosure of gun ownership provides the authorities with such little actionable or useful information it is almost not worth mentioning.    View Full Article

Two Colorado teens arrested in alleged plot to shoot up high school

Just a week after a disaffected teen severely wounded a fellow student at his Colorado high school before killing himself, police arrested two other boys Friday on suspicion of plotting to similarly shoot up their high school in the same state.
Trinidad High School, Trinidad Middle School and Fisher's Peak School in Trinidad were on "lockout" status — sealing children and staff inside — for most of Thursday until it was determined that the boys weren't in class.

The boys — who weren't identified because they are juveniles ages 15 and 16 — face charges of making a credible threat to a school and felony inciting destruction of life or property, Trinidad police said Friday.
They'd been planning for at least six weeks to open fire in the high school once classes resume next month after the winter break, police said       .
Stopping Big Bertha? Seattle debates mysterious object obstructing tunnel machine
There's much speculation as to what has stopped a giant machine boring a tunnel beneath downtown Seattle. Theories range from a man-made object from Seattle's past, such as a steam engine, to something from the natural world, such as a glacial boulder. NBC's Joe Fryer reports.

SEATTLE — In a city known for a giant needle pointing toward space, everyone is talking about a massive machine stuck underground.
They call her Bertha, a 57-foot-wide, earth-eating tunnel maker chewing her way below downtown Seattle to make way for an underground highway along the city's waterfront.
But two weeks ago, a thousand feet into her near two-mile journey, Bertha came to a grinding halt.
"We're a bit puzzled about what's preventing us from moving forward," said Chris Dixon with Seattle Tunnel Partners.
Officially, Bertha was stopped “after unanticipated and increasing resistance was experienced, possibly due to an obstruction.”
A mysterious obstruction, 60 feet down, and Seattle is abuzz with theories of what's in Bertha's way.
“There’s history buried everywhere,” local historian Feliks Banel said.

"It could be Jimmy Hoffa, it might be Sasquatch or it could be a flying saucer, you know."

'Duck Dynasty' fans outraged over A&E's Phil Robertson punishment

A&E suspends 'Duck Dynasty' star for anti-gay remarks
The day after "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson was suspended from the hit A&E reality series, fans and nonfans of the series took to social media to either express their outrage at A&E for removing Robertson from the show or for airing the show in the first place.
Robertson was put on an indefinite filming hiatus after the publication of an interview in the January issue of GQ magazine in which he made controversial remarks about gay people and civil rights that drew heat from GLAAD, among others.
Whether they were fans of the show or not, many conservative Christians took great offense that Robertson was removed from the show for expressing his beliefs.

Does anyone think he is going to release anything ? It always bothers me to read articles like this because I'm always disappointed when nothing happens and again, he gets away with breaking the law.

Federal Judge Slams Obama’s ‘Cavalier Attitude,’ Orders Him To Release Sealed DocumentsFederal Judge Slams Obama’s ‘Cavalier Attitude,’ Orders Him To Release Sealed Documents

Could this be a sign of things to come? A federal judge has slammed Obama’s “cavalier attitude” towards transparency with his decision making, ordering his administration to release a government-wide foreign aid directive that he wanted hidden from the public. A lawsuit had been filed by Washington, D.C. non-profit Center for Effective Government, which sought the release of the Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development.
The Obama administration had declined to make the document public under the “Presidential communications privilege,” but federal judge Ellen Huvelle declared the Obama administration’s argument of executive privilege was “troubling” and accused them of engaging in “governance by secret law.” The ruling comes on the heels of a report last month by the Committee to Protect Journalists, which concluded that Obama’s administration was the most secretive since the Nixon administration  
       It also appears that the President could be brought to trial soon once again for his transgressions. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, who expressed outrage over the Obama administration’s “unprecedented level” of floating congressional law, wants to take the White House to court over executive outreach. Thirty Republican congressman are on board with this and Gowdy also said a House resolution has authorized a congressional lawsuit.
Speaking to Fox News, Gowdy explained that Congress could sue the Obama administration for ignoring laws passed by the legislation. “I don’t like running to the court. I’d rather use any other remedy other than going to the court,” he said. But our other remedies have not worked and the judicial branch is there for a reason. In certain circumstances Congress ought to be able to assert its standing, and I just think the pervasiveness of his ignoring of Congress has reached a point [that] we don’t have a choice.”

Another dog shoots hunter, this time in Florida

It's happened again: A hunting dog has shot its master.
This time, a man in Florida was hit in the thigh by a round from his Remington .308 on Saturday, reported.

The culprit was a bulldog named Eli. Authorities told that Billy E. Brown, 78, was driving to go deer hunting with a friend on a bumpy road in Pasco County near Tampa when Eli "got excited in the truck" and bumped the rifle. The gun discharged, the bullet hit Brown in the right thigh, and he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, said Officer George Wells, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Brown's condition was not released.
Wells said Brown and the friend were about one-and-a-half miles into the woods when the accident -- if you're buying that the dog didn't mean to do that -- occurred. 
The name of Brown's friend was not released. The two have been hunting together for more than 25 years, Wells told
This incident follows one Dec. 1 in which a hunter in Utah was hit in the buttocks by birdshot after his dog stepped on a shotgun laid across the bow of a boat. The Salt Lake City Tribune said the wounded hunter had 27 pellets removed from ... well, you know.

'Fake' interpreter from Mandela event is admitted to psychiatric hospital: report

Thamsanqa Jantjie stands just three feet from President Barack Obama during the Nelson Mandela memorial service on Dec. 10.
The "fake" sign language interpreter who stood feet away from world leaders including President Barack Obama at Nelson Mandela's memorial has been committed to a psychiatric hospital, South African media reported Thursday.
Thamsanqa Jantjie caused uproar at the ceremony in Johannesburg on Dec. 10 when he used sign-language interpretations that deaf groups say were little more than nonsensical gesticulations.
The 34-year-old later claimed he may have suffered a schizophrenic attack in which he saw "angels" flying into the stadium.

'Duck Dynasty' new season will feature suspended patriarch

Phil Robertson is the patriarch of "Duck Dynasty."
A&E Networks
Duck Commander Phil Robertson will appear in the next season of "Duck Dynasty" but has been suspended from filming future episodes.
When "Duck Dynasty" returns for its new season on Jan. 15, "Duck Commander" Phil Robertson will be a part of it, an A&E network spokesman told TODAY on Thursday. Most of the 10-episode season was filmed before the network suspended the Robertson family patriarch for anti-gay remarks he made during a GQ magazine interview and the stories would not work without him, the spokesman said.
The hit show starring the wealthy Louisiana family is not currently in production. But on Wednesday, A&E announced it was "indefinitely" placing Roberts on hiatus from filming and he will not be part of the show when production resumes sometime next year.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty,' A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community."
The family's conservative religious views are featured regularly on the show.

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson Thinks Black People Were Happy Before the Civil Rights Movement

Phil Robertson, GQ

When it comes to expressing his thoughts, Phil Robertson clearly isn't limited to just sharing his views on homosexuality .


Peter Gicas, eonline

In the January issue of GQ , the Duck Dynasty star also comments on growing up in a pre-civil-rights-era Louisiana.

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson claims. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotten with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash."

He adds, "They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people'—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."               REST OF STORY

It seems apropos to mention something controversial about Santa Claus, given the recent furor over his skin pigmentation. (Because, ya know, early Catholic Bishops and German folklore characters are traditionally such a multicultural crowd.) But, my controversial comment about old Saint Nick has little to do with his racial identification. You see, I have given it many hours of thought (no… I have no life), and I am convinced that Kris Kringle is (undoubtedly) a member of the Republican Party.      
Wait! Hear me out! He may not be a Gadsden-flag-waving member of the tea party, but he definitely belongs to the NRA and votes a solidly Republican ticket. (He might have voted for JFK once, but that was primarily because of Kennedy’s tax policy.) Here’s the reasoning:
For starters, the Jolly Old Elf decided to set up shop in one of the most barren, and desolate, corners of the globe. (No… I’m not talking about Detroit.) In addition to the Arctic’s plentiful supply of recoverable oil, it has advantages that would - stereotypically speaking - be attractive to Republican businessmen: It’s basically one freezing cold tax haven.

If you have to lie to support gun control, how is it a morally viable position?

If you have to lie to support gun control, how is it a morally viable position?

An ever-present dichotomy in the nation’s conversation over the place of firearms in our society is how the two sides chose to argue  their points in the debate. Citizen control groups such as Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Moms Demand Action, the Violence Policy Center, Brady Coalition (or whatever they’re on now), Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and their allies, tend to make the same anecdote-based arguments time and again in order to attempt to persuade people on an emotional level. They then reinforce their arguments with the entire raft of logical fallacies, and in some cases, simply choose to tell half-truths to blatant falsehoods. REST OF STORY

--Government shutdown. The real disaster was the unnecessary panic over it. Zoos would shut down, and baby pandas would starve. The media made it sound like America might not survive even slightly limited government. They were happy to echo the politicians' claim that there's no wasteful or stupid spending to cut.

Donations allow blind man to keep the dog that saved him
Cecil Williams says that it was a miracle and angels help save him, after the blind man lost consciousness and tumbled with his guide dog in front of an oncoming New York City train subway track.

NEW YORK -- A blind man who would have had to say goodbye to the guide dog that stayed by his side after a fall onto the New York City subway tracks will now get to keep his loyal companion of eight years.
Ever since Cecil Williams' story aired Tuesday on "Nightly News with Brian Williams," NBC News has
received hundreds of inquiries from people wanting to help Williams, 61, keep his dog Orlando.
Williams fainted at the 125th Street platform in Manhattan on Tuesday, and as he tumbled forward, Orlando landed in the tracks alongside him. Orlando tried to rouse Williams, who was unconscious.

GUN BULLIES: Moms Demand try to bully Ronald McDonald into joining their citizen control cult       by   

It’s a simple concept for most rational people: comply with the law.That simple concept is apparently lost on the bullies of the citizen control cultists of Moms Demand Action, who are now attempting to bully McDonald’s into banning concealed carry, even when it is legal under state laws:Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which organized a successful campaign this summer to pressure Starbucks into banning guns from its cafes, is preparing a similar effort aimed at McDonald’s, founder Shannon Watts told POLITICO.It’s part of the larger political shift from gun control advocacy groups, and the recognition that like much of Obama’s second term agenda, gun control is buried under the reality of a divided Congress.

Epstein needs to do better research, as Starbucks did not ban guns from their stores. As Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz made clear, he only made a request. Moms Demand also tried to target Staples, and that failed as well when the office supply chain refused to be bullied.
Mom’s Demand is doing a wonderful job of advertising of what might happen if citizen’s don’t jealous guard their liberties.

Federal Judge: "I Cannot Imagine" the NSA's Collection of Phone Records is Constitutional
Has Edward Snowden been vindicated? Not quite, but the U.S. government is at least being forced to answer tougher questions about the constitutionality and effectiveness of one of its most controversial countererrorism programs.
A federal judge ruled Monday that the National Security Agency program which collects information on nearly all telephone calls made to, from or within the United States is likely to be unconstitutional. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon found that the program appears to violate the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures. He also said the Justice Department had failed to demonstrate that collecting the so-called metadata had helped to head off terrorist attacks.  Acting on a lawsuit brought by conservative legal activist Larry Klayman, Leon issued a preliminary injunction barring the NSA from collecting metadata pertaining to the Verizon accounts of Klayman and one of his clients. However, the judge stayed the order to allow for an appeal.  “I cannot imagine a more ‘indiscriminate’ and ‘arbitrary invasion’ than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying it and analyzing it without judicial approval,” wrote Leon, an appointee of President George W. Bush       REST OF STORY

As NORAD Tracks Santa, critics track NORAD


3 hours ago

DENVER (AP) — The U.S. and Canadian military will entertain millions of kids again this Christmas Eve with second-by-second updates on Santa's global whereabouts. But there's something new this year: public criticism. 

A children's advocacy group says an animated video on the NORAD Tracks Santa website injects militarism into Christmas by showing fighter jets escorting Santa's sleigh. It's a rare swipe at the popular program, which last year attracted a record 22.3 million unique visitors from around the world to its website.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command defends the video as nonthreatening and safe for kids.

The kerfuffle erupted two weeks ago over a 39-second video on called "NORAD Tracks Santa Trailer Video 2013."

A 5-second segment of the video — which is also available on — shows two fighter jets flanking Santa.

Men dressed as Santas show up for an epic pub crawl, and later spread Christmas cheer and joy throughout the Big Apple in the form of, er, urine and vomit. Think of this as a Father Christmas flash mob, with no real leadership but a growing annual membership base.  Most New Yorkers want no part of SantaCon, but its participants insist that they’re entitled to assemble and celebrate just like everyone else  And what happens when alcohol gets added to cliques and entitlement? Inevitably, this (via Breitbart, NSFW language):

A group of men wearing Santa suits got into a brawl near Union Square that was caught on video Saturday night, cops said.
“We’re looking into it,” said NYPD spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said after the Daily News notified cops of the video that was posted on YouTube. “We don’t have any reported assaults right now. We know about it.”

GOOD GUY WITH A GUN: Armed school officer stopped Arapahoe High School shooting

GOOD GUY WITH A GUN: Armed school officer stopped Arapahoe High School shooting

Authorities are dramatically revising the response time of law enforcement officers to the Arapahoe High School shooting on Friday. Originally, it was claimed by multiple outlets that responding law enforcement agencies took 14 minutes to arrive at the school, and that the shooter was not located until 30 minutes into the event. As we noted based on this information, this proves that schools need armed staffers and/or faculty on campus because it takes far too long for outside law enforcement agencies to respond to stop an active shooterIt now appears that our original thesis was confirmed because there was an armed officer on campus who was the reason the shooter was stopped after only shooting one student.
They are now stating that the entire incident was over in just 80 seconds.                     STORY


FBI disrupts shootings through interventions There have been hundreds of these disruptions since 2011,


  WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI says it has helped to disrupt or prevent nearly 150 shootings and violent attacks this year, in part by steering potential gunmen toward mental health professionals. It's an achievement that stands out during a year when President Barack Obama made curbing gun violence a priority, yet has had little success in getting new restrictions enacted.

Mass shootings like the rampages in Newtown, Conn., the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard and the Aurora, Colo., movie theater do not represent the majority of gun violence. Yet when they do occur, the impact is high. And many times there's the question of whether the shooter had adequate mental health treatment to prevent it from happening. Yet, in the national discourse about reducing gun violence, mental health treatment has received much less attention than banning assault weapons.              REST OF STORY 


Relative: Mandela signer in group that burned men


JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The bogus sign language interpreter at last week's Nelson Mandela memorial service was among a group of people who accosted two men found with a stolen television and burned them to death by setting fire to tires placed around their necks, one of the interpreter's cousins and three of his friends told The Associated Press Monday.

But Thamsanqa Jantjie never went to trial for the 2003 killings when other suspects did in 2006 because authorities determined he was not mentally fit to stand trial, said the four. They insisted on speaking anonymously because of the sensitivity of the fake signing fiasco, which has deeply embarrassed South Africa's government and prompted a high-level investigation into how it happened.

Their account of the killings matched a description of the crime and the outcome for Jantjie that he himself described in an interview published on Sunday by the Sunday Times newspaper of Johannesburg                          . READ MORE

WASHINGTON (AP) — The fired chief of staff for Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander will live with his parents in Maryland and be electronically monitored while he awaits prosecution on charges of possession and attempted distribution of child pornography.

A federal judge allowed Ryan Loskarn to be released from custody after a hearing Monday. Loskarn's lawyers argued that the 35-year-old had no prior convictions or arrests and that he should be freed. Prosecutors opposed the request.

Magistrate Judge John Facciola ordered Loskarn to be confined to his parents' home on the monitor and isn't allowed any access to the Internet.

Loskarn's parents appeared in court, and his father stood with his arm around his wife as she told the judge that they have no home computer and that cellphones and iPads are password protected. They promised to ensure their son would have no access to the Internet. They have no young children living in the home, they told the judge. Loskarn's parents declined comment after the hearing.                         STORY
