Top 10 Countries That Love The U.S., And The Top 10 That Hate Us

 

 

 

 

 

” The top 10 countries that are fans of the U.S., and the top 10 countries that are critics, includes some surprises: France made #10 on the fan list, and Germany made #10 on the critics, based on a new Pew Research Center survey.

  What’s not surprising here is that Israel is our #2 fan, and the U.S. gets high unfavorable ratings from Palestinians.

  There is little evidence of “profound anti-Americanism” except in a handful of countries, Pew’s research found.”

 

    To us, the most startling revelation in the poll is France making the top ten in ranking America favorably . Surprises never cease . Read the whole thing which reveals strong support for America in Asia , Africa and Latin America and much less positive ratings in Europe and the mideast . 

 Funny how the two regions most likely to have a negative view of America are also the regions that thrive on antisemitism and Jew-hating .

   Another commonality that springs to mind , this one on the positive side of the poll is that the ten countries that think the most highly of the US have been on the receiving end of very little American attention , diplomatic or otherwise , over the past half decade or so … coincidence ?

The Celebrities Risking Worldwide Scorn By Supporting Israel

 

 

 

 

” My new heroes and heroines are not great leaders or deep thinkers. I’m inspired by the courage of comedienne Joan Rivers, radio shock jock Howard Stern, plus a small knot of uncommonly brave celebrities.

  These awesome dudes and dudettes have risked worldwide condemnation by publicly supporting Israel’s right to defend itself from relentless rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists.

“ If you are anti-Israel, you are anti-America,’’ Stern, 60, declared last month on his Sirius XM show. “It’s the only democracy over there. It’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.’’

  Rivers, 81, let ’er rip to TMZ.com. “Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out,’’ she said. “ If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey.” Well put.   Simon Cowell, 54, is the English-born music producer who rose to fame as Mr. Nasty on “American Idol,’’ “Britain’s Got Talent’’ and “The X Factor.’’  

  Last October, he did a mitzvah. In a bit of charity that came to most of the world’s attention only recently, Cowell donated $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces, an organization formed by Holocaust survivors that pays for the education and care of Israeli troops and supports families of slain soldiers.”

 

 

    Andrea Peyser has more on the small , but growing group of celebrities with the wisdom and fortitude to support the only free country in the mideast .

Paedophile Snared As Google Scans Gmail For Images Of Child Abuse

 

 

 

 

” Technology giant Google has developed state of the art software which proactively scours hundreds of millions of email accounts for images of child abuse.

  The breakthrough means paedophiles around the world will no longer be able to store and send vile images via email without the risk of their crimes becoming known to the authorities.

  Details of the software emerged after a 41-year-old convicted sex offender was arrested in Texas for possession of child abuse images.

  Police in the United States revealed that Google’s sophisticated search system had identified suspect material in an email sent by a man in Houston.

  Child protection experts were automatically tipped off and were then able to alert the police, who swooped after requesting the user’s personal information from Google.”

 

 

       Certainly we have no desire to facilitate the proliferation of child porn , but this news report provides yet another vivid illustration of Google’s lack of respect for basic privacy rights . Anyone that uses Gmail is crazy . How long will it be before the State “persuades” the tech giant to employ software that detects the “malcontents” and “subversives” amongst us ?

Jury sides With Man Who Fired At Cops After They Forcibly Entered Wrong Home

 

 

 

Brandon Watson

 

 

” After battling authorities for more than a year, a Portsmouth, Virginia, man was handed a verdict of not guilty by a jury who determined that he did not, in fact, act recklessly when he fired a warning shot at officers who attempted to make forcible entry into his home, only to later discover that they had gone to the wrong house.

  The incident, which happened last January, unfolded while Brandon Watson and his wife were watching late-night TV and heard noises coming from the back yard.

“ She said, ‘Oh my gosh, someone is in the backyard,’” Watson told reporters. “The noises got closer and then she heard the clicking of the backdoor handle.”

  At that point Watson ran to grab his gun, which was legally owned.

“ We ran upstairs very quickly,” Watson recalled. “She saw guys in all black.”

  Watson didn’t immediately call 911 because he couldn’t find his cell phone. However, he wasn’t about to let anyone come into his home and possibly harm his family either. So he ran back downstairs, gun in hand.

  Watson called out into the darkness, saying, “Who is that? I have a gun.”

  He received no response, but instead then saw a red laser aimed at his chest.”

 

 

 

So the man did what any law-abiding , self-reliant citizen would do to protect his home and loved ones …

 

 

 

” At the point, still not knowing who was trying to get into his home, Watson fired a warning shot through the window and ran across the street to seek help from his neighbor, a Virginia State Trooper.

  Then things became even more confusing for Watson. As he ran out of his house he was confronted by authorities who told him to drop his weapon. He complied.

“ They said, ‘We just got news you shot at an officer.’ I said, ‘An officer? Nobody came to my door. What do you mean an officer? I didn’t know there were any officers in my backyard,’” he said.

  According to Watson, the cops never announced who they were or why they were there. And the officers, responding to a call from Watson’s neighbor about a possible break-in, had apparently gone to the wrong house.”

 

 

 

     Not only did Mr Watson have the intestinal fortitude to engage in armed conflict in defense of home and hearth , he refused to knuckle under to a judicial system rigged to favor the prosecutors and police and forced a jury trial . The jury is to be commended for making a bold statement with regard to the sanctity of the home and the increasing lawlessness of the “law” .

 

 

 

The judge found Watson guilty, but the matter was far from resolved. Watson appealed the decision and a mistrial was declared by the second judge. Watson then requested a jury trial.

“ This can’t be doing your job. You come in my backyard, try to open my door, open my window and flash red laser beams on my chest because you thought I was the burglar, and I thought you were the burglar,” Watson said.

  And apparently the jury, who deliberated for a total of 47 minutes, agreed.

  In fact, the jury felt Watson actually showed restraint by only firing a single warning shot.”

 

 

 

     That last line is a fabulous statement on individual rights … Mr Watson “showed restraint by only firing a single shot”  … You gotta love it …

Americans Really Wish They Had Elected Mitt Romney Instead Of Obama

 

 

 

 

” Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they’d overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor’s bid. That’s just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That’s an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.

  Two years ago, Obama won re-election with about 51 percent of the vote.

  Of course, the poll should be taken with a grain of salt. While Obama is actually taking on the tough task of leading the nation, Romney is sitting comfortably on the sidelines. Still, the finding comes as foreign and domestic crises have sent Obama’s approval rating tumbling back to 40 percent, per Gallup.

  Also in the CNN survey, a record-low 46 percent say Obama “shares [their] values,” while only 49 percent say he is “sincere in what he says,” also a record-low.”

Don’t Send Your Kid To The Ivy League

 

 

Hanna Sender/International Business Times

 

 

 

” When I speak of elite education, I mean prestigious institutions like Harvard or Stanford or Williams as well as the larger universe of second-tier selective schools, but I also mean everything that leads up to and away from themthe private and affluent public high schools; the ever-growing industry of tutors and consultants and test-prep courses; the admissions process itself, squatting like a dragon at the entrance to adulthood; the brand-name graduate schools and employment opportunities that come after the B.A.; and the parents and communities, largely upper-middle class, who push their children into the maw of this machine. In short, our entire system of elite education.

  I should say that this subject is very personal for me. Like so many kids today, I went off to college like a sleepwalker. You chose the most prestigious place that let you in; up ahead were vaguely understood objectives: status, wealth“success.” What it meant to actually get an education and why you might want oneall this was off the table. It was only after 24 years in the Ivy Leaguecollege and a Ph.D. at Columbia, ten years on the faculty at Yalethat I started to think about what this system does to kids and how they can escape from it, what it does to our society and how we can dismantle it. “

New Republic

Read also Newsweek’s piece on The New Republic’s hypocrisy regarding their hefty percentage of Ivy League staff .

” But if such a student seeks a job at The New Republic, that move won’t be a wise one. We’ve sized up TNR’s lengthy editorial masthead (read: not the business or sales teams) and noticed that 46 out of 91 staffers hold undergraduate or graduate degrees (or both) from an Ivy League institution. Readers who attended a college with a robust core curriculum that forces you to take a math class—Columbia University, for instance—will note that that amounts to more than half of the masthead. Here’s the breakdown.”

Pa. Doctor Shoots Patient Who Killed Caseworker

 

 

 

 

 

” A psychiatric outpatient opened fire Thursday inside a psychiatrist’s office at a hospital near Philadelphia, killing his caseworker and slightly wounding the doctor, who shot the gunman with his personal firearm, authorities said.

  The suspect, Richard Plotts, of Upper Darby, Pa., was reported in critical condition after the shooting at 2:20 p.m. in an office at the Mercy Wellness Center of Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said at an evening news conference.

  The unidentified 52-year-old doctor shot Plotts three times and suffered a graze wound when the suspect returned fire, Whelan said at an evening news conference. Two guns were recovered.”

This Year’s Political Environment Is Shaping Up To Be Nearly As Bleak As 2010, And That’s Ominous News For Senate Democrats.

 

 

 

 

” When writing about politics, it’s all too frequent to use terminology that often obscures more than elucidates. That’s especially true when it comes to the word “wave”—shorthand for a landslide victory for the winning party. I’ve argued before that the likelihood of 2014 being a wave election has been rising, given the president’s consistently low approval ratings and the fact that Republicans are running evenly on the generic ballot (which usually translates into a clear GOP edge) and that the right-track/wrong-track numbers are near historic lows. All these big-picture signs are ominous for the party in power.

  But this week, The New York Times‘ Nate Cohn argued that the threat of a Republican wave is subsiding, thanks to red-state Senate Democrats remaining resilient and the declining risk of blue-state seats—such as those in Oregon and Virginia—flipping in a landslide. This, despite the various political forecasters and Senate models (including the NYT‘s own Upshot) showing the likelihood of a Republican takeover increasing over time, with more states emerging in play.

What gives?

  To be fair, a lot of the disagreement stems from semantics—the definition of the word “wave.” Cohn argues that if Republicans merely sweep red-state Democratic seats and perhaps pick off a stray swing seat, it’s not a wave election—even if Republicans net seven seats on their way to the majority. To accomplish that feat, Republicans would need to oust four sitting Democratic senators. Over the last decade, Republicans have defeated only three sitting senators (Tom Daschle in South Dakota, Russ Feingold in Wisconsin, and Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas). Surely, a red-state sweep would signify the conclusion of a political shake-up in the South, where voters are so disgusted with the national Democratic Party that they’re willing to throw out senators who had previously relied on split-ticket voters to win. If a Republican takeover by picking up seven Senate seats isn’t a wave, it’s awfully close.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Box-Office Slump: Hollywood Facing Worst Summer In Eight Years

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Domestic box office is down 20 percent in the U.S. as “Sex Tape” goes limp and, for the first time since 2001, no film crosses $300 million. Laments one studio executive, “I wish I worked at Netflix.”” 

  Less than six weeks before Labor Day, hopes for recovery at the North American summer box office have evaporated. The season is expected to finish down 15 to 20 percent compared with 2013, the worst year-over-year decline in three decades, and revenue will struggle to crack $4 billion, which hasn’t happened in eight years. As a result, analysts predict that the full year is facing a deficit of 4 to 5 percent.

  Comparisons in North America are tough, considering revenue hit a record $4.75 billion in summer 2013. It didn’t help that Fast & Furious 7 was pushed from July to April 2015 following the death of Paul Walker or that Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened in early April. But even bullish observers are grim. “Moviegoing begets moviegoing, and we have lost our momentum,” says Rentrak’s Paul Dergarabedian. “People aren’t seeing trailers and marketing materials. They still want to go to the movies — they just want to go to really good movies.” “

Ex-Planned Parenthood Director: They Told Me Every Baby Killed in Abortion Made Them $313.29

image

” In a new expose’ video released today, a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director says Planned Parenthood put a price on the value of a human life: $313.29.

  That’s the amount of money Abby Johnson says the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic she ran in south Texas would make every time it would kill a baby in an abortion. Johnson, who is now pro-life, released a video this morning exposing the abortion quotas that take place at Planned Parenthood.

  Johnson says her supervisor informed her that her clinic needed to double the number of abortions it was doing and that it should be killing 1,135 babies per year to make the financial goals set up for her clinic by Planned Parenthood’s head honchos.

“This was bothersome to me as I truly believed that our goal was to reduce the number of abortions…after all, that’s what we always said to the media,” Johnson said. “When I voiced my concerns to my supervisor, she laughed and said, ‘But Abby, abortion is how we make our money.’” “

White House Fights To Keep Shirley Sherrod Emails Secret

 

 

 

” The Obama administration is trying to keep reams of White House emails regarding the 2010 firing of former Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod secret.

  Justice Department lawyers argued in U.S. District Court last week that documents filed recently in Sherrod’s libel lawsuit against the late Andrew Breitbart—who published edited video clips that led the White House to fire Sherrod over accusations of racism—should be sealed and not released to the public.

Josh Gerstein of Politico reports:

  Court filings are normally public, but the Justice Department said the e-mails from the accounts of nine White House staffers and an additional number of Agriculture Department officials should be kept under wraps in part because the public already has enough information through official statements about Sherrod’s forced resignation and the ensuing events. “

 

    Tyranny is what we have when the administration and their bureaucratic flunkies decide exactly when the public has received “enough information” about our elected /appointed officials and their doings …

‘Six Californias’ Plan May Make 2016 Ballot

 

 

 

 

” A plan backed by venture capitalist Tim Draper to split California into six states has gained enough signatures to make the November 2016 ballot, the plan’s backers say.

  A Twitter account belonging to the nonprofit Six Californias tweeted on Monday that “#SixCalifornias will be submitting signatures in Sacramento tomorrow for placement on the November 2016 ballot. Stay tuned for coverage!”

The six carved out states would look like this:

 

  • Jefferson: The northern part of the state, including Humboldt and Mendocino counties.
  • North California: The wine country counties of Sonoma and Napa, as well as the Sierra Nevada region.
  • Silicon Valley: Including San Francisco, San Jose and most of what’s considered the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Central California: The vast central valley farm region, including Tulare and Fresno counties.
  • West California: Including Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
  • South California: Including what’s called the Inland Empire of San Bernadino and Riverside, plus San Diego.

  The plan has met with resistance from California’s Democratic majority, and a Field Poll found 59% of Californians surveyed were against the plan, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

  But interest in the plan has been strong enough to send Draper and his campaigners to Sacramento — for now, the one and only capital of California. They’ll reveal the exact number of signatures they received on Tuesday in a news conference, according to the Chronicle.”

21 Conservative Writers To Read At The Beach

 

 

” Conservatives have for a generation spent too much time complaining about the liberal dominance of popular culture, and too little making their own.

  But — as I argue in National Review this month — there is a growing countercultural revolt against the ingrained (and often unconscious) liberalism of mainstream popular culture, a revolt that has so far escaped widespread notice, though you can find some of it on Liberty Island, a website I founded that is devoted to the best in conservative fiction.

  After reading my introduction to this literary revolt, the editors of BuzzFeed asked me to suggest a list of conservative novels that deserve a wider audience. What follows is not the usual exercise of pointing out a handful of successful conservative authors like Tom Clancy, Tom Wolfe, or Brad Thor. Nor is it in any way exhaustive, but a brief, unsystematic survey of an as-yet uncharted territory. As such, it represents the barest hint of what is actually out there.

  This an introduction to 21 writers you probably have never heard of — and won’t, if the powers that rule the lit-crit, fanfic, and commercial publishing worlds have anything to say about it.

  So consider this a news dispatch from way, way, way outside the Beltway. Out in the lush, teeming jungle beyond the walls of the literary-industrial complex. The conservative countercultural revolt is on its way. Indeed it is already here. I didn’t say you had to like it. But give it a try — you just might! And if you have more ideas, add them in the comments section below.”

3D Printed Ruger Pistol Demonstration By Buck O’ Fama

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An experimenter under the nom de plume of Buck O’ Fama has printed the receiver for the popular Ruger Charger pistol, and assembled a working pistol with it.   The video shows the test fire of the gun, which appears to work well.    It has always been legal to make your own firearms in the United States, if they are not prohibited weapons.   Pistols such as the Ruger have been ruled to be protected under the Second Amendment to the Constitution.   At the end of the video, the experimenter notes: “If you take my gun, I will just print another one
   The video was posted on July 4th, Independence Day, from somewhere in the State of Nevada.   It is interesting that in spite of the fact that the poster did nothing illegal, they felt compelled to disguise their voice.”
     The truly disturbing thing about this video is the poll that was included on LiveLeak asking if people should have the right to create their own firearm with 3D printing . I guess that LiveLeak is no different than a lot of the social media sites in that there is a ‘leftist” tilt to the users , anyway here is a screenshot of the poll (now closed) results .

Censorship: 38 Journalism Groups Slam Obama’s ‘Politically-Driven Suppression Of News’

 

 

 

 

” In unprecedented criticism of the White House, 38 journalism groups have assailed the president’s team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials and overall “politically-driven suppression of the news.”

  In a letter to President Obama, the 38, led by the Society of Professional Journalists, said efforts by government officials to stifle or block coverage has grown for years and reached a high-point under his administration despite Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to provide transparency.”

 

 

   Among the “journalist’s” complaints , which we would color a fine example of “too little , too late” and for which the media have only themselves to blame are :

 

 

” • Officials blocking reporters’ requests to talk to specific staff people.

• Excessive delays in answering interview requests that stretch past reporters’ deadlines.

• Officials conveying information “on background” — refusing to give reporters what should be public information unless they agree not to say who is speaking.

• Federal agencies blackballing reporters who write critically of them.”

 

 

This might really have mattered if the entire mainstream media collective hadn’t spent the past six years making the current administration into the hive of secrecy and lies that it is and we find it exceedingly difficult to dredge up any sympathy for those responsible for foisting the most corrupt and inept presidential administration EVER on us through their clear dereliction .

Someone Tried To Shame Her Body With Graffiti, But This Teen Took An Awesome Photo Instead

 

 

 

” When 14-year-old Carleigh O’Connell heard that a gibe about her body had been spray-painted on a cement block for her whole town to see, she responded in the unlikeliest, but most awesome of ways: She snapped a photo while posing proudly with the graffiti.

  She then shared the image on social media and told her mom, Daryl, to do the same.

  She wanted the image to go viral. She wanted to turn the story around.

” [Carleigh] decided that she was going to be stronger than hurtful words on the concrete and that she was going to be proud of her figure,” the teen’s mom wrote in a Sunday Facebook post. “She also told me that she feels complete sympathy for the teenagers across the country who face this everyday. She understands and wants all of them to find strength inside to rise above the nastiness and be empowered by who you are, how you are made and what is in your heart.” “

    While this video is obviously faked , it is very well done and truly hysterical .

Have a laugh and thank the creative genius who crafted the video for a humorous start to the workday .

 

Here He Is Folks: The All-Time Darwin Award Winner

 

 

 

   The incident above took place in South Korea and the forty year-old in the video actually plummeted about twenty feet to his death . While we take no joy in the death of a fellow human being , we cannot help but wonder how a person can survive to the age of 40 without knowing that elevator doors remain shut for a reason ?

 

 

Feds Booed In California City After Standoff On Illegals

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place.

  Local politicians calling for secure borders proved far more popular with the crowd Wednesday night.

” Send them back! Send the back!” the special-meeting crowd chanted, shouting down Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson after he took responsibility for transferring the Central American children and families to Murrieta from Texas, where the numbers are too much for facilities to handle.

  On Tuesday, the buses were rerouted an hour south to San Diego after they were met with flag-waving protesters in Murrieta.

  The Wednesday night crowd, gathered at a high school auditorium that seats 750 in the desert city of 100,000 people, groaned when Beeson said four of the immigrants had to be hospitalized, two with scabies and two with fevers.

  And Beeson conceded that he did not know where Tuesday’s immigrants nor several more waves slated to arrive from Texas in coming days will end up.”

 

 

   Here’s an idea how we get can get the illegals out of our country: All we need to do is put a few guns on the buses and have them accidentally cross the Mexican border . That way the Mexican government can imprison them indefinitely just as they have done to our Marine , Andrew Tahmooressi .

Man Enlists A Biker Gang To ‘Attack’ Him Just So He Could Propose To His Girlfriend

 

 

 

” A husband-to-be combined a gang of bikers and a bit of harassment to stage quite an elaborate proposal for his girlfriend.

  A motorcyclist collides with a guy driving a car on the road, and the two pull over. The biker is enraged, pushing the driver around and seeming to yell at him — you can’t hear exactly what’s going on with the aggressive foreign music playing in the background, but exact words are unnecessary. “

Hands Down Obama Is The Worst President Since WWII: Poll

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Quinnipiac found 45 percent of voters say the country would have been better off if Mr. Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, had been election, while just 38 percent say Mr. Obama remains a better choice. Even Democrats aren’t so sure — just 74 percent of them told the pollsters Mr. Obama was clearly the better pick in the last election.

  Voters also rate him the worst president since World War II, topping even his predecessor, President George W. Bush, who had left office with terrible ratings.

“ Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

  A Zogby Analytics Poll released Wednesday also found Mr. Obama slipping — in that survey, to 44 percent approval, while his disapproval leapt 4 percentage points from last month to reach 54 percent.”
