PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez Posted By: Hazymac- Wed, 01 09 2014 01:09:22 GMT According to Robert Sczcerba, a health technology venture capitalist and former director of life sciences at Lockheed Martin, the greatest health technology danger is the cacophony of beeps that attend medical devices in every hospital. Because if everything is a priority then nothing is. (Snip) The Secret Service also had an alarm system when intruder Omar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence and made it into the East Room. It played little part in the proceedings because it was muted at the request of an usher. “An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert

Now, 11 cases have been confirmed as originating in Florida, spurring concern this may be the beginning of the type of explosive growth seen elsewhere from

Evidence of the Islamic terror threat within our borders

Canada Free Press, by Doug Hagmann Posted By: SpeedMaster- Wed, 01 37 2014 12:37:58 GMT Following the attacks of 2001, I set out to “make a difference,” which was to assist our government by offering my services in my capacity as a multi'state licensed investigator. Okay, hold the chuckles, snickers and laughs at bay for a moment while I briefly explain my thinking at that time. In 2001, I had 16 years of investigative experience under my belt and several years of experience with the inner workings of certain government “operations” that the majority of people don’t even know exist. I engaged in covert activities as an operational asset for a few “three'letter” government agencies on

Breitbart Conversation, by John Hayward Posted By: mitzi- Wed, 01 22 2014 12:22:31 GMT Whatever else is going on at the Secret Service, they´ve got the Obama Administration scandal playbook down pat, which is really depressing. 1. Lie about what happened ' They not only misled the public about how far Omar Gonzalez penetrated the White House, they apparently were less than forthcoming with Congress. (snip) 2. Dribble out the truth ' Even after that "early false report" started to fall apart, the Secret Service kept as much of the truth under lock and key as possible. We only know that Gonzalez was able to overpower one of the Secret Service agents in his

Victory! Boys born as boys can shower with girls in Kentucky school

Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw Posted By: KarenJ1- Wed, 01 19 2014 12:19:51 GMT I probably would have missed this story were it not for Maggie Gallagher at The Corner. It seems that the good people on the appeal board considering a case at Atherton High School (part of the Jefferson County public school system) have determined that you can use the girls’ bathrooms, locker room and showers if you say you’re a girl. No physical required. A transgender teenager, who was born male but identifies as a female, can continue to use a women’s restroom and locker room at a Jefferson County Public School. In a 5'to'1 vote, an appeal board upheld Atherton High School’s

Ulsterman Report, by D.W. Ulsterman Posted By: KarenJ1- Wed, 01 00 2014 12:00:20 GMT A woman loses her life in a horrific act of terrorism while doing nothing more unusual than showing up for work, and Obama White House staff see the tragedy only through the narrow prism of their own diminished political fortunes… The complaint was reportedly uttered during a private DNC fundraising event earlier this week and within earshot of several others. A member of the Obama White House, allegedly after having a few drinks, responded loudly to the topic of the Oklahoma beheading tragedy by exclaiming how awful it was how they (the White House) “couldn’t catch a break.” Her words

Tue, 09/30/2014 - 21:13
Fox News, by Dan Springer Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Tue, 30 03 2014 11:03:32 GMT Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov '' but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

Tue, 09/30/2014 - 20:55
Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Crabtree Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Tue, 30 49 2014 10:49:33 GMT A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Daily Caller, by Tristyn Bloom Posted By: KarenJ1- Tue, 30 44 2014 10:44:53 GMT A recent investigation has uncovered a shocking tale of corruption and adultery at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Susan Taylor, a longtime federal employee and Deputy Chief Procurement Officer at the Veterans Health Administration since 2010, not only used her position to award government contracts to a former business partner, and worked with said company to hide the thousands and thousands of dollars it was making off the government, but conspired with her married boyfriend — who also had close personal ties to the company — to thwart investigations into her misconduct. The salacious story began in 1994, when Taylor met William

Tue, 09/30/2014 - 20:38
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough Posted By: KarenJ1- Tue, 30 32 2014 10:32:37 GMT The Obama administration does not share Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s view that the forces of militant Islam, whether Sunni or Shi’ite, have in common an ultimate goal “to dominate the world,” a State Department spokeswoman said Monday. In a hard-hitting speech at the United Nations, the Israeli leader said that entities such as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL), Hamas, the Iranian regime, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram share that eventual goal. Jen Psaki was asked at the State Department daily briefing later whether the administration agreed with Netanyahu’s argument that those various groups

Yahoo! News, by Bianna Golodryga Posted By: JoniTx- Tue, 30 27 2014 10:27:39 GMT Arguably the world´s best chess player ever, Garry Kasparov is on a new mission. He hopes to convince the world that the biggest threat to global unrest is not the Islamic State, al'Qaida or North Korea. Instead it is Vladimir Putin, Russia´s president from 2000 to 2008 and then again from 2012 to today. In an interview with Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga, Kasparov outlined his reasons for believing that Putin should be what keeps the world up at night. He chided President Barack Obama for being too late in addressing Putin´s aggression in Ukraine — ultimately annexing
