QOTD: "After learning that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had accepted an invitation to address a joint session of Congress about the need for new sanctions to stop Iran’s nuclear program, the Obama administration went . . . well, nuclear.

One “senior American official” threatened Netanyahu, telling the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.” Meanwhile a “source close to [Secretary of State John] Kerry” told The Post that the “secretary’s patience is not infinite” and that “playing politics with that relationship could blunt Secretary Kerry’s enthusiasm for being Israel’s primary defender.”

...Using anonymous officials to attack Netanyahu is nothing new. Unnamed officials have called him “chickens---,” “recalcitrant,” “myopic,” “reactionary,” “obtuse,” “blustering,” “pompous,” and “Aspergery” — all to one journalist (Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic, who keeps a running list)...

...Obama can afford a bad deal because, as that anonymous official put it, he has a year and a half left to his presidency. The people of Israel, on the other hand, will have to live with the consequences long after Obama is gone." --Marc A. Thiessen

SHARP: Yes, There's Ironclad Statistical Proof the New England Patriots Started Cheating Deflating Balls in 2007

And got a phenomenal advantage in terms of reducing fumbles by doing so:

The 2014 Patriots were just the 3rd team in the last 25 years to never have lost a fumble at home! The biggest difference between the Patriots and the other 2 teams who did it was that New England ran between 150 and 200 MORE plays this year than those teams did in the years they had zero home fumbles, making the Patriots stand alone in this unique statistic.

Based on the desire to incorporate full season data (not just home games, as a team theoretically bring “doctored footballs” with them on the road) I performed the following analysis:

I looked at the last 5 years of data (since 2010) and examined TOTAL FUMBLES in all games (as well as fumbles/game) but more importantly, TOTAL OFFENSIVE PLAYS RUN. Thus, we can to determine average PLAYS per FUMBLE, a much more valuable statistic. The results are displayed in the chart below. Keep in mind, this is for all games since 2010, regardless of indoors, outdoors, weather, site, etc. EVERYTHING.


...I actually went back and researched 5 year periods for the entire NFL over the last 25 years. The Patriots ratio of 187 plays to 1 fumble is the BEST of ANY team in the NFL for ANY 5 year span of time over the last 25 years. Not was it just the best, it wasn’t close...

Read the whole thing.

This needs to be investigated and, if it pans out, the Patriots need to have all of their post-2007 wins expunged from the record. This is really no different than roid-ragers like Bonds and McGwire juicing their way into the record books. It's crap.

GOT SKYNET? Legendary inventor Ray Kurweil's predictions for the next 25 years are a tad ominous

Ray Kurzweil is a legend in the scientific community, having pioneered the first text-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the CCD flatbed scanner, and the first large-scale voice recognition system. He's received 20 honorary doctorates and was appointed by Larry Page to lead artificial intelligence at Google.

In the new book BOLD by Peter Diamandis, Kurzweil reveals his predictions for the next 25 years. It's worth noting that an equivalent set of predictions, offered 25 years ago in 1990, turned out to be startlingly accurate (a computer would defeat the human chess champion by 1998, PC's would routinely operate over wireless networks by 2010, etc.).

By the late 2010s, glasses will beam images directly onto the retina. Ten terabytes of computing power (roughly the same as the human brain) will cost about $1,000.

By the 2020s, most diseases will go away as nanobots become smarter than current medical technology. Normal human eating can be replaced by nanosystems. The Turing test begins to be passable. Self-driving cars begin to take over the roads, and people won’t be allowed to drive on highways.

By the 2030s, virtual reality will begin to feel 100% real. We will be able to upload our mind / consciousness by the end of the decade.


By the 2040s, non-biological intelligence will be a billion times more capable than biological intelligence (a.k.a. us). Nanotech foglets will be able to make food out of thin air and create any object in physical world at a whim.

By 2045, we will multiply our intelligence a billionfold by linking wirelessly from our neocortex to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud.

The meta-theme of Kurzweil's predictions is that of exponentiality, extremely rapid growth (e.g., in semiconductor density, computing power, ...) in the overarching capabilities of man's inventions.

Which makes me think of Skynet.

As the wise man said, "May you live in interesting times."

As Obama bows to the new Saudi King, he quietly unveils plans to kill off the crucial Trans-Alaska pipeline

By Investor's Business Daily

Energy: While taking credit for increased oil and gas production on private and state lands, the president moves to put 12 million acres of the oil-rich Arctic National Wildlife Refuge off limits. OPEC and the Saudis are smiling.

Whoever's in charge of presidential optics these days fits the classic definition of the blind leading the blind.

It's bad enough that President Obama doesn't have time to get to Paris for a global protest against terrorism after the Charlie Hebdo attack but can meet and greet the San Antonio Spurs.

But then he privately slams an invitation by Congress to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, our only true ally in a terror-stricken Middle East, with whom he has no time to speak, while he travels to Saudi Arabia to meet with new Saudi King Salman and extend our condolences on the death of King Abdullah.

And the way to Riyadh, Obama gives the Saudis a gift in the form of the proposed wilderness designation of three energy-rich areas of Alaska: 1.52 million acres of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge's coastal plain, 5.85 million acres of the Brooks mountain range and 4.92 million acres of the Porcupine Plateau.

The proposed designation comes from a president who has taken credit for an oil boom on private and state lands that has driven down oil prices to the point that the Russian economy is cratering and OPEC is hyperventilating.

It also comes from the president who in 2012 mocked the "drill, baby, drill" mantra of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "Since it's an election year (Republicans) are already dusting off their three-point plans for $2 gas," Obama said, adding that "we can't just drill our way to lower gas prices."

Well, we could and we did and $2 gas is here — despite a president who restricts domestic oil exploration and production in federal waters and on federal lands, and blocks the Keystone XL pipeline lest North America leave OPEC in the dust and literally pounding sand.

Why I love watching MSNBC, part XVIMCLXIII

It doesn't get any better than watching Al "Not So" Sharpton do weather.

I'm willing to bet cash money that literally 60 to 70 percent of MSNBC's viewers watch Sharpton for comic relief.

"ONE OF THE LARGEST STORMS IN HISTORY": 24 Inches of Global Warming Set to Slam NYC

How much you wanna bet that Al Gore is in the Big Apple?

New York braced for one of the biggest blizzards in “the city’s history,” with over 24 inches of snow expected to blanket Gotham on Monday and Tuesday, authorities said.

“We are facing one of the largest storms in the city’s history,” Mayor de Blasio said. “This could be a storm…the likes of which we have never seen before.”

Snow is expected to begin falling just before sunrise on Monday before the serious blizzard kicks in late in the afternoon and through Tuesday morning’s rush, forecasters said ... “New Yorkers should not underestimate this storm. Assume the conditions will be unsafe,” de Blasio said. “When you can stay indoors stay indoors.”

...As difficult as Monday morning’s commute will be, that’s a cake walk compared to what’s coming on Tuesday. Commuters and pedestrians alike will have to deal with winds between 20 mph and 40 mph, dropping the real-feel temperature and blowing snow right into faces of New Yorkers.

But remember, folks: weather is not climate, unless it backs up the global warming scam.


CONVENTION OF STATES UPDATE: The Latest from West Virginia

By Mike Holz

"The second clause of Article V - empowering the states - is necessary, because left to Congress, no amendments of the proper kind would ever be obtained by the people, if the Government should become oppressive."

Almost a year ago, we published a column that pointed out how oppressive our federal government has become, and the need to rescue it from the career politicians on both sides of the aisle who are more interested in their political futures than in America's future. Article V of the U.S. Constitution, also known as The Convention of States, is the vehicle by which the states can take control of our out-of-control government. In a nutshell, Article V gives the individual states the power to propose and enact Constitutional amendments independent of Congress.

To convene a Convention of States, two-thirds of the fifty states' legislatures, or 34 states, would need to initiate a convention to propose specific Constitutional amendments. If three-fourths of the states, or 38 states, ratified these amendments, the amendments would become law and part of the U.S. Constitution. This is strictly a state legislature initiative; state governors have no role in the process and cannot stop it. Currently, 40 states are in the process of initiating an Article V convention to propose three specific amendments. One would impose fiscal restraint on the federal government through a balanced budget amendment, the second would limit the government's power and jurisdiction, and the third would impose term limits on Congress.

Should these amendments become ratified, they become law. Congress can't change or amend (add pork to) them, the president can't veto them; the Supreme Court can't overturn them.

Last February, Delegate John Overington sponsored a resolution calling on West Virginia to participate in the Convention of States movement. At the time, he had 37 bi-partisan co-sponsors. This year, he hopes to have 64 sponsors when he re-introduces it. State Senator Robert Karnes will be introducing it in the Senate. They'll both need our help in this effort.

Lets contact all our representatives, both Democrat and Republican, and let them know where we stand.

LATEST OPEN BORDERS INSANITY: Disease and Violent Middle Eastern Criminals Edition

Illegal Immigrant from Middle East Arrested in Texas Burglary

An illegal immigrant from the Middle east was arrested Wednesday during a burglary in Plano.

WFAA reported:

The arrest of a burglary suspect in Plano on Wednesday could represent a break in a string of more than two dozen similar crimes since last October.

Riashat Ishmam, 17, provided authorities with the critical and timely information they needed to make take a man into custody. He had been playing games on the computer when the doorbell rang...

Riashat told News 8 that Allahdadi had also broken through the bedroom door with force. The door was shattered around the doorknob.

A panicked teen only had his phone with him — but it was all he needed... “Since this door doesn’t have a lock, I just stood still after I called 911, and luckily he didn’t even check the bathroom,” Riashat said...

The young man said he heard Allahdadi combing through drawers and moving quickly. But the intruder did not get far, because officers arrived within six minutes of that phone call and picked up Allahdadi as he climbed out the window.

Farhood Allahdadi is being held on an immigration hold... He is here illegally.

California Measles Outbreak Likely “Imported” to United States

With the Disneyland measles outbreak expected to grow, California hospitals and doctors’ offices are preparing for new cases and a flood of questions from patients worried about getting the disease. So far 68 cases of measles have been reported in California this year, the bulk of them in people who visited — or had contact with someone who visited — two Disney theme parks in Anaheim. The outbreak could get much worse.

In 2011, there were 222 confirmed Measles cases in the United States, 200 were linked with importations, including 72 that were linked with importations from other countries.

So is this latest outbreak linked to the influx of illegal immigrant children welcomed to America by the Obama administration?

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet warned about this possibility at The Monitor back in June 2014... and [the] Canadian government blames the current US outbreak on “imported cases.”


Thanks, Obama!
