Return of the ‘Cell Phones Cause Cancer’ Scare

Cell phones have become so popular that only the most dire medical findings would be likely to significantly reduce their use, but the financial and legal fallout from product liability lawsuits could deliver a major blow to the industry, with one likely result being a significant increase in the cost of cell phones, from both redesigns meant to minimize potentially harmful radiation, and the cost of major lawsuits. Who knows what other sorts of nanny interventions we could face down the line? Phones treated like packs of cigarettes, slathered with warning labels? Mandatory warning messages piped into the ears of users when they’ve been on the phone too long?

Federal Judge Threatens IRS Commissioner With Contempt

After the hearings were over, Judge Sullivan wrote an order calling the Administration’s resistance to his orders “nonsensical” and clearly stating that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and others “shall be directed to show cause as to why they should not be held in contempt of Court” if they continue dragging their feet.

Syrian Rebel Leader Kidnapped by Al-Qaeda, Along with 7 of His 54 Troops

A matter of days after 54 American-trained moderate Syrian Rebel Army fighters reported for duty, the New York Times reports that the commander of the unit plus seven of his fighters—including his second-in-command—have been kidnapped by the Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda franchise, while they were returning from a meeting in Turkey.

Greek PM Tsipras Considers Early Elections, Struggles With Syriza Party Revolt

On Wednesday, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras floated the idea of calling for early elections in Greece to “bolster a parliamentary majority that has been strained by bailout reforms demanded by creditors,” as Reuters put it. Such is the chaos of end-state socialism in Greece that Tsipras really needs his own party to lose in those early elections. The Syriza party is coming unglued over the austerity components of Greece’s latest bailout package.

Planned Parenthood Accused of Faking Website Hack

There are mounting suspicions that Planned Parenthood faked the much-publicized “hacker attack” on their website this week, as part of a P.R. strategy to distract from the storm of undercover-video revelations about their baby-organ harvesting operations.

Clinton’s Illicit Mail Server Repeatedly Handled Classified Benghazi Intel

Yesterday’s lawyer-lingo evasions don’t matter any more, because it was all B.S. anyway. When inspectors general discovered hard proof of then-classified material flowing through ClintonMail.com, they referred the matter to the Justice Department… and warned that future public releases of Clinton’s email could be peppered with enough secret information to threaten national security.

China Wants to Set the Rules for the Global Internet

As James T. Areddy at the Wall Street Journal tells it, the Chinese military was deeply troubled by the role a supposedly U.S.-dominated Internet played in destabilizing other despotic governments and warned Beijing could be next. The warning described the Internet as “a new form of global control” and the United States as a “shadow” hovering behind various uprisings.

Chinese Hackers Also Hit United Airlines, Stole Travel Information

United Airlines has announced a penetration of its computer security in May and June, with investigators saying it was most likely the same Chinese squad that carried out the “cyber Pearl Harbor” attack on the Office of Personnel Management, along with an operation against health insurance company Anthem. It appears the Chinese raiders made off with a sizable amount of flight information, including passenger lists, from United.

After 100+ Days, Google Admits Huge Security Flaw in Android Phones

It’s been compared to the huge “Heartbleed” bug that panicked the Internet last year. It could prove to be an even worse problem than Heartbleed was, because while devising and distributing fixes for that problem was hardly an easy task, it wasn’t as difficult as updating the operating system on some 950 million cell phones from various providers.

Bomb Threat Diverts British Airways Flight Bound for London to Montreal

There are still conflicting reports about the reason British Airways Flight 274, carrying 312 passengers from Las Vegas to London on an overnight flight, was diverted to Montreal for an emergency landing on Wednesday morning. However, several sources cite interviews and social-media postings from passengers who indicate the plane was grounded after a bomb threat.

Mysterious Two-Month Gap In Hillary’s Email Coincides With Benghazi Terrorist Attacks, Ethics Exemption For Top Aide

Because we no longer have anything resembling the rule of law, it’s an open question whether Democrat royalty like Clinton will ever be held to account – they simply do not live under the laws that govern even the highest-ranking yeomen and peons. The latest twist in Clinton’s flaunting of the law, and reckless endangerment of national security, to hide her activities as Secretary of State from Congress and the public is a mysterious two-month gap in her email record – just like the missing minutes from those infamous Nixon tapes.

Dem Rep Grills John Kerry About Iran’s Support for International Terrorism

Republican members of the House made headlines for grilling Secretary of State John Kerry on the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, but Democrat Rep. Ted Deutch landed a solid punch by noting the Administration is absurdly downplaying how much damage Iran can do with all the money Obama wants to give them, long before they detonate a nuclear bomb.

Syrian President Assad Admits Military Manpower Running Low

Australia’s ABC News reports on dictator Bashar al-Assad’s “remarkably frank assessment of the strains affecting the Syrian military.” Assad used his first public address in a year to admit he has lost control of a good deal of his country, and is digging in to defend what his regime has left.

Workers at a Planned Parenthood clinic hang a banner to announce the opening of the facility October 2, 2007 in Aurora, Illinois. The clinic, reported to be the largest Planned Parenthood clinic in the country, was scheduled to open last month but the opening was held up by last minute legal challenges.

Planned Parenthood: How Liberals Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Unfettered Pursuit of Profit

These videos are exactly what liberal agenda journalists love doing to nearly every other mega-corporation in the land. When the Planned Parenthood executive muses on maximizing the profits of her baby-organ harvesting operation and says, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” that’s the sort of line MSM journalists would underscore with ominous music, and maybe a slow zoom into her greedy capitalist-pig eyes, if this were an expose about any other Big Business.

Mark Levin’s Message to America: ‘Plunder and Deceit’

Mark Levin is hardly blind to all the other Big Government plunder going on, but in every chapter he returns to the ruling vs. rising generational conflict, urging young people to wake up and pull the political burglar alarms before they are wiped out. He knows this is an uphill battle, because so many liberal positions have been made fashionable to the very same young people whose future is being stolen by statism.

Deranged Warmist Accuses Big Oil of Murdering Climate Scientists

Global warming nuts already think Big Oil can control the weather, and they seem to be moving toward accusing fossil fuel companies of somehow faking the climate itself, in such a way that satellites are fooled into reporting all those beautiful billion-dollar “climate change” doomsday theories are a pile of rubbish.

Intel Community Warns: Posting Hillary’s Supposedly Harmless Email Could Jeopardize National Security

It’s a matter of objective fact that Hillary Clinton lied, and is lying today, when she claims she didn’t pass any classified material through the insecure personal server she wasn’t supposed to be using. Those claims were never plausible, and now they’ve been demolished. It’s not something “Republicans” are saying, it’s something intelligence community Inspector Generals are saying.

GOP Establishment Wages War Against Cruz and Conservative Voters

Republican leaders said they needed the Senate to get anything done, and they got it, in a historic midterm election landslide. They’ve done absolutely nothing with it. Harry Reid is still the effective Senate Majority Leader – in fact, he’s sitting prettier than ever, because he gets to watch Republicans use his grubby tactics to stymie conservative votes, while his hands remain clean.

Hungarian Prime Minister Warns Mass Migration Threatens European Survival

The tidal wave of migrants fleeing the bloody chaos of the post-Obama Middle East has been hitting Mediterranean nations particularly hard. But Hungary has seen a sizable number of migrants from Syria and Afghanistan as well, experiencing what the Wall Street Journal describes as a doubling of last year’s total migrant population in just the first six months of 2015.
