They had to slug it out in court first (Citizens United, maker of ‘Rocky Mountain Heist,’ wins major victory for political speech) but Citizens United’s newest documentary “Rocky Mountain Heist” has been released. The trailer is available to view online.

From the movie’s website:

If you haven’t heard that once-Red state Colorado is now to the Left of Massachusetts on most issues, you probably haven’t heard the story of the “Gang of Four” – a secretive group of leftist millionaires and billionaires. Together, they orchestrated one of the most successful campaign-funding schemes ever devised in politics.

The result was a never-ending campaign to radically change the culture of a once-reliable Red mountain state. Now, homeless vagrants smoke pot in public parks…

Seriously. As Twitchy reported, Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the NIH, outrageously claimed that an Ebola vaccine would probably have been developed by now if not for budget cuts.

First, a reminder about budget “cuts.”

Bingo.

But what if you do not pick a target? How do you measure how effective you are at shooting or throwing without a target? The answer is: you can’t. It is impossible to measure how effective you are at shooting or throwing if you do not designate a target first. Well, society is no different. If a society has any hope of measuring ‘progress,’ it has to have a target. But how can a society pick a target when so many of its citizens think that you can’t judge others? Or the leaders of that society have different sets of rules depending on what group a citizen happens to belong? Once again, it is impossible to…

Big data has become a large topic of attention in recent years, with increased emphasis in science and technology, business, politics, and many other areas of society and culture. The term refers to the collection of massive data sets, so large that they cannot typically be processed using traditional data processing applications.

To many organizations and individuals, big data offers never before seen opportunities to understand major economic, social, and political trends and preferences of individuals, demographic groups, and larger levels of society. This information can then be used for applications ranging from marketing and monitoring to the prediction of future trends or events.

Big data is a complex issue and one that is difficult to gauge the full extent and implications of. A variety of authors have recently written books on the topic, some which focus on benefits and opportunities, others on potential costs and misuses, and still others…

Rich Kids Of Tehran Instagram Shows Amazing Life Of Iran’s Young And Wealthy

 

Tehran Rich Kids

 

 

 

” Life is good in Iran, if you’re young and filthy rich. That is, if the Rich Kids of Tehran Instagram account is anything to go by.

  Inspired by the Rich Kids of Instagram account which showcases the glamorous lives of twenty-somethings with more money than sense, the Iranian version is packed with images of luxury cars, fashion, watches, pools and jewelry.”

 

 

Private jet life. Pic: Screengrab, Instagram.

 

 

” It’s gained more than 55,000 followers since starting on 13 September and administrators told news.com.au they wanted to show the side of Iran that doesn’t get seen on the news.

“ We love all Iranians, rich and poor doesn’t mean anything to us. All people are equal, our object is to show the world the good side of Iran-Tehran which I think everybody should see before they judge us.”

“ We are in no now way political and we are just showing how beautiful Tehran and people from Tehran are. Especially with all the bad press in Middle East currently we want the world to see Tehran is nothing like that.” “

 

 

    Would Allah and the Ayatollah approve of this decadent western lifestyle ?  Visit the link and this one as well to view the luxury to which some of these kids have become accustomed to .

   Don’t get us wrong , we have nothing against earned wealth , but it is more than a tad hypocritical of the parents of these kids to espouse hatred of the west while at the same time basking in the very same luxury that the western lifestyle has to offer .

 The article and pictures also make the reader aware of the fact that Obama blew a great opportunity by failing to support the Iranian youth and their protests at the beginning of his presidency as the young people of the country , along with many adults , obviously desire the worldly goods and lifestyle of the west .

The vandalism may have wipe half a million off the price (Picture: Twitter)

An amateur psychologist seems to have been at work as a vandal on the streets of Seattle, painting a penis on a £1.5million supercar which some might say functioned as a substitute for the real, fleshy thing.

Anyone looking for a metal substitute for their own organ could do worse than the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport: it’s the world’s most expensive production car, and does nought to 60 in 2.6 seconds.

The Veyron boasts 1200hp, more than many dedicated racing cars, but is street legal.

On Saturday afternoon in Washington D.C., the crowd at Nationals Park was in for a treat when one charismatic vet strolled to the pitchers mound.

Sgt. First Class Brian Keaton (Ret.), a 20-year Army vet, livened up the crowd with his unique take on the ceremonial first pitch before game 2 of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants.

After jogging out to second base to hug second basemen Anthony Rendon, Keaton got down on his stomach when he approached the pitcher’s mound, crawling towards the plate before ultimately lobbing the baseball towards the plate like a grenade, to the delight of the local crowd.

Obama is mad that his staff won’t give him the winning lottery number before the drawing. Does he really think the world is so simple that his staff can predict and foresee everything? He is a child in a world of adults.

The USA is adrift with nobody taking charge to lead our government. Our president is looking backwards offering stupid excuses. If he surrounded himself with political lackeys, then that is his fault. If he ignored the work necessary to keep up with world events, then that is his fault.

A former official at the Department of Justice ripped apart outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder during a radio interview yesterday.

J. Christian Adams, who resigned from the DOJ over the department’s handling of the infamous Black Panther scandal, told Holder “good riddance” and said the attorney general had turned the Justice Department into a political operation.

“It’s a hotbed of sort of radical progressive politics, whether it’s anti-gun, anti-racial equality, anti-election integrity, anti-free speech,” Adams told WMAL. “It runs the gamut of far-left ideology in a place that really, under great Attorneys General like Ed Meese – frankly even Janet Reno treated it with more respect than Eric Holder has.”

Adams also attacked Holder’s conception of racial justice.

“Our country is more polarized and more racially divided because of Eric Holder. He turned Justice Department into this racially motivated political turnout machine for the Democrat party,” he said.

A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been. This indicates daytime cooling.

Jack Mook is a man of many titles. He’s a detective with the Pittsburgh police and the founder of Steel City Gym, a non-profit that works to get kids off the street. Now he can add another title to that list: adoptive dad.

In a radio interview with KDKA Morning News, Mook discussed how he recently adopted 11-year-old Jesse and 15-year-old Josh. Mook met the brothers seven years ago when they began attending his gym. He decided to officially adopt the boys after they told him how their home was overrun with rats and roaches and that they hadn’t slept in a bed for six years.

While community members have heaped praises on Mook for his actions, he says that he actually owes a lot to the kids. To his now sons.

“They’re making me better.”

Attorney general has become a controversial title. The nation’s top cop, the attorney general is supposed to take the lead in enforcing federal law. But in recent years, the position has become a backdoor for presidential agendas, whether it was Janet Reno ordering Elian Gonzalez snatched and deported to Cuba, or Alberto Gonzalez bending over backwards to justify President Bush’s anti-terror initiatives.

But no attorney general appointed in modern times has become as much of a lightning rod as Eric Holder. Appointed at the beginning of President Obama’s first term, Holder was controversial right from the beginning. Today he announced that he’s stepping down. Let’s take an opportunity to remember some of his most truly outrageous moments.
