Controlling the paths of photons the same as electrons.  I remember this from the GTR days.   I remember one company called Lumenon that went bust claiming they could get bend the course of photons.

This could be for real:

Just 1 more additional thought  grin

At this point the Republicans should hit the airways with guns blazing and exclaim your damn right we needed to grill HC and expose her dishonesty.  The Benghazi committee did it's duty (while the media does not) in holding a Sec of St and representing the WH accountable for lying about an attack on Americans just before an election.  

Fight back!   Stop being wishy washy and  grudgingly agree with the leftist media with "well we didn't learn anything new".

Just one additional thought.   When ever she gets herself into trouble she may as well simply come out and tell the electorate not to worry.  Just elect her and the checks will keep coming and women will all get raises and promotions the very first day of her office.   (the first true thing she will probably ever say)   But add the lie that if she doesn't get elected everyone will be on bread lines because of the evil American Nazis - the Republicans.

"I am not not sure what a undocumented immigrant"

I can answer that for you GM.

An undocumented immigrant is defined as one who dreams.   A family person.   One is who hard working.   One who is making a better life for him or her self or their aspiring physicist children.

One who is honest, law abiding, and pays sales tax.  One who aspires to the American ideal.   An individual who is simply following in the footsteps of all those white European immigrants of yester yore.

In short a dreamer.   Just a step below a saint.

"Democrats are in denial. Their party is actually in deep trouble"

Certainly some truth to this.  That is why the party has to resort to lies, bribery, extortion, pandering to the "coalition", flame charges of racism, sexism, discrimination, and flood the borders with people who just love benefits and often mistrust whites and "Yankee" imperialists.  The leftist media lets them get away with it.   That is the biggest problem in MHO.

I don't know how we can have a free society with leaders who are allowed to lie.  That was what the media was supposed to do and keep that in check.

Can anyone imagine Hillary using all the wheels of government at her disposal to intimidate, threaten, any opposition?

It seems that only the people who understand what that means are those who lived under communism.   And those of us old enough to remember the cold war.

Speaking of the cold war I read so much now that Eugene McCarthy was out of control.   Yet I also read how the Soviets did infiltrate our top secret branches of government.   So I don't believe the liberal re writing of that either.

And now we have reports of how China and all our enemies are stealing our intellect like crazy.   Well all these foreign students are not pledging allegiance to us are they?   And for God's sake our universities have money making campuses all over the world.   While this may attract talent to the US it certainly allows much to be stolen.

"If there was an organized system discovered for unmarking classified material, heads will roll"

Maybe but it won't be hers.  The fix is in.

Biden out.  IRS investigation ended with "no evidence" of criminal wrongdoing and announced Friday evening.

Just like the Copyright office.  No evidence of any criminal wrong doing.  Just mistakes or incompetence.  And advice from one of my attorneys to be careful what I say about Federal Officials.

And I agree with Doug.  It is all about the lying more than anything else.  She never seems to have to pay a price for lying.   Just keep promising those checks and smile and everything is hunky dory.   All in one day.

And anyone who thinks that even an indictment will make a difference should certainly reconsider that now.

She will still run, spend five times more millions on lawyers to make up stories and throw down war tacks in front of every avenue the legal process will go,  and than proceed to tell us how taxpayers are wasting millions on partisan investigations and the rats will be marching right behind her to the WH.

And don't think many illegals will not be voting for her.

I am not so sure that some of the Repub candidates couldn't beat her, but it is sure hard to compete with taxpayer cash bribes:  "free" college, "free" health  care, "free" borders, and the rest.

We all here knew this.   The evidence is clear.

That said the left will not abandon their gal.  She is all they have for '16.

They fight in war like fashion.  Just no guns but in every other way they leave a scorched Earth policy.

Bribe, threaten, break all laws and deny it (especially with no controlling legal authority or one that is pro Democrat Party), cover up, lie more, make up stories, twist the truth or spin it backwards, primp her up in suits, and an inch thick of makeup, have her sit upright and act proper and above it all, hit the airways lying right along with her, the media almost entirely willing to go along (my first revulsion is that scumbag Carl Bernstein who shows how his going after Nixon was nothing more than partisanship now defending this crum), and she agrees to take responsibility but then has NO accountability beyond that empty statement and she still is a candidate for the Dem nomination.

What a freaking mob!

I am not sure we need "a Kemp" now.

Growth is fine but when speaks of growth and low taxes as basically the answer to everything in the world a la Kudlow (those are the only things ever out of his mouth) I wonder what wall streeter is backing him or her. 

But he sounds better than Boehner so in a sense he is an obvious improvement.

Doug you are so right.  The only problem is I have yet to here a single Republican make this case in a very persuasive way except some of those on talk radio.

Rush can do it.  Levin can do it.  But both have too much political baggage and are not running for anything.

Hillary's responses could be;

1)  What difference does it make?

2)  None of your Republican business!

3)  We were looking to replace the ambassador anyway with a woman.

4)  I've already answered every question, been more forthright, turned over more documents and emails than anyone in history, and cooperated fully with multiple unprecedented investigations.

5)  We did the best we could with the intelligence we had and acted appropriately.   Yes some mistakes, in retrospect, were made and yes we will learn from them to avoid similar events in the future (when I am President)

6)  I take full responsibility.   (So lets move on)

How can he be good for the Conservatives when even the Democrat hacks are for him?

We do not need any more concessions, compromises and the rest.  We need to stand up to the Democrats.

Now we have the propagandists trying to tell us how conservative he (Ryan) is.   

Full amnesty?   Talk about tyranny.

Just read on Drudge that 10000 are at the border just this month.   That does not include the 10s of thousands overstaying their visas or just overstaying their vacations.   I can tell you here in NJ they are here in HUGE numbers and no one is counting them.  I drove by an elementary school playground in New Brunswick yesterday and the whole playground was with children who appeared to be from Mexico or Central or South America.
Every one.

There is obviously an undercounting of Muslims in the US too.   Around here they are all over the place.   

I don't mind at all to an extent but having peoples from all over just parking themselves here in the millions is not acceptable.

Interesting CD.   I think anyone would agree that it is nothing short of ASTONISHING that no one from that class can remember him in any way though he is now the President.

Very strange indeed.

Does this guy remember any Muslim students?  It seems the only one or two people that seem to remember him but are for the most part staying mum are Muslim roommates.

Oh I get it.  The new leftist line is we need the workers to feed the social security ponzy scheme.  The SS system was broken by the drunk spending politicians instead of being in a trust fund like it should have been.  Who are the people of what we keep hearing, "Brussels" who seem to be the masters of Europe and now are being followed by Obama and his gang?   Who are these people that are the new form of tyranny who are ruling over us behind the scenes?

Here is one theory about Merkel.   Someone yesterday called in to Michael Savage.  She was from Southern Germany and unfortunately I didn't get to here the whole conservation but she said she wonders if Merkel who is from the former East Germany has lived and raised from the Communist mindset has something to do with it.  She was suspicious that she is part of something behind the scenes.  I suspect it is just part of this whole progressive movement.

One article suggests Merkel is being practical.  To get more workers in to Germany to support the generous welfare retirement state:

****Immigrants: Why Merkel Opened Up The Flood Gates

By Mauldin Economics • on September 20, 2015 • in Politics

 impose quotas under pain of sanctions, Brussels has unwisely brought home the reality that states have given up sovereignty over their borders, police and judicial systems, just as they gave up economic sovereignty by joining the euro.

This comes as a rude shock, creating a new East-West rift within European affairs to match the North-South battles over EMU. With certain nuances, the peoples of Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Baltic states do not accept the legitimacy of the demands being made upon them.

But it is the countries of Eastern Europe that are bearing the brunt of the immigration crisis. This map from the  New York Times depicts the general flow of immigrants from Turkey into Germany. It was not all that long ago that one could pass freely from one country in the EU to another, but now border walls and controls are being erected.

And while Merkel says Germany can take 800,000 immigrants, notice that they are instituting border controls to stem the flow. It’s is all well and good to say you can absorb nearly a million immigrants, but where you going to put them? How will you feed them or school them? That effort takes planning and time, planning and time that have not been much in evidence the past few years in Europe.

Just as the Grexit crisis showed us the underbelly of European monetary integration, the refugee crisis highlights the huge difficulty of political integration. Hungarians, Slovaks, and Czechs do not want Brussels telling them how many Syrians they must admit and support. I don’t blame them.

Ambrose astutely points out that Europe must now deal with an east-west split on immigration along with the still-unbridged north-south economic chasm. Yet EU leaders push blithely on, thinking they can roll right over their opposition. To them each crisis presents another opportunity to impose structure and an artificial unity from the top down.

This is maddening, and it leaves an interesting question unanswered. Why is Germany so willing to accept so many migrants, while other countries are not? Aside from the 800,000 it will take this year, officials have said Germany can handle 500,000 more per year, indefinitely.

That starts to add up in a few years, even in a country of 80+ million. This is more than a gesture. What is Merkel thinking?

The answer is that Merkel is thinking ahead. Germany’s economy is going to need those people. Germany currently has a population of 82 million, but that number is expected to fall by 12 million over the next 40 years. Further, as the population ages, the number of potential workers who are not retired will be reduced by many more millions. The percentage of people in Germany of working age (between 20 and 65) was projected by a recent study to drop from 61% to 54% by 2030. Germany recorded the lowest birth rate in the world from 2008 to 2013. Hold that thought. (Mitchell)

Merkel’s immigration plan presents huge problems, given Germany’s generous retirement benefits and social programs. For every baby boomer that stops working, the country needs at least one person to start working. The US is in better shape only because we have enough legal immigrants to keep the demographic pipeline flowing. Even so, we will hit the wall at some point unless more and more potential retirees keep working.

Germany is in much deeper trouble on this point, and Merkel knows it. I suspect she wants to bring in quite a few million immigrants, somehow make good Germans out of them, and keep the economy humming.

My good friend Dennis Gartman wrote about this in his September 15 daily report:

But there is a very real demographic reason why Germany is so willing to take a surfeit of these refugees: German’s demographics demand it. Simply put, Germany’s population… and especially its indigenous… population is imploding swiftly and certainly.
Already there are very real shortages of young, skilled workers, and many German companies openly and regularly complain that they cannot hire enough workers to fill job vacancies because there are not enough workers available for those jobs.

Further, Germany needs younger workers to fill those jobs because it needs their salaries for the social welfare programs that Germany is so renowned for. Simply put, there are not enough workers paying into the social programs to pay for them at present, and this problem shall become worse, not better, unless Germany’s population swells measurably in the coming years and decades.

So, Ms. Merkel has a clear ulterior motive for her seeming generosity: she wants the present welfare system in Germany that benefits now and will even more greatly benefit more in the future her normal constituency. If Germans are going to retire they shall need either newly born Germans to take their place and pay into the social security systems or Germany shall need to “import” foreign workers. For now, it is the latter that Ms. Merkel is embracing.

Immigrants – Newfound Sympathy

Before going any further, let’s define some terms. Refugees are persons driven from their homes by war, natural disasters, or other circumstances beyond their control. They have little or no choice but to seek refuge elsewhere.

Migrants, in contrast, are people who have homes but choose to move elsewhere, typically for economic reasons. They think they can increase their income or improve their lives in a new country.

This distinction is important in international law. Various treaties and agreements obligate governments to give refugees at least temporary shelter. Migrants, because they have a home to which they could return, receive lower priority.

One of the problems is that Europe’s incoming masses include both refugees and migrants. Sorting them out is not always easy. Many lack passports and other identifying documents. I saw a small note in the Wall Street Journal this week saying that Sweden is paying a language-analysis firm to verify refugee candidates’ origins by their accents. As good a method as any, I suppose.

I think everyone agrees that sheltering genuine refugees is simply the right thing to do. We all know that in other circumstances we could be the homeless ones. Some older Europeans saw World War II uproot millions. Their children and grandchildren have heard the stories, and that awareness probably drives some of the sympathy we see now.

While the goals are laudable, there are limits. Even a continent as large as Europe needs to manage population inflows and screen out undesirables. The sheer scale of the challenge is mindboggling. More than four million people have left Syria alone. Tens of thousands more are leaving each week. Most are still in the bordering states of Turkey and Jordan, which have their own challenges and can’t offer permanent resettlement.

This graphic from Stratfor shows where people are leaving and where they want to go.
Merkel immigrantsimmigrants
You can see that part of the problem is intra-European. People from Kosovo, Montenegro, and Albania want to leave their countries. While some of them might be able to legitimately claim refugee status, I think most can be properly labeled as economic immigrants.

It’s also interesting which countries have received the most asylum applicants

I finished reading the LBJ book and took interest in how Johnson made a complete fool out of Mitt's father George Romney during the Detroit riots in the mid '60s which basically terminated any chance his father might have had to make a serious run for the Republican nomination for President in '68.  Mitt got the nomination but in the end wound up a loser (for President) like his father.

I do not know how any Republican can support Paul Ryan for speaker when Harry Reid is for him.  And Boehner too.   That automatically disqualifies him in my mind.   The Establishment refuses to get it don't they?   This is NOT about working or compromising with Democrats.  It is about stopping them!!!  For God's sake.  They still can't figure it out?!  NO wonder we have been so screwed all these years. 

Mitt Romney: Demise of Legacy Media Empowering Conservative ‘Insurgents,’ Preventing More ‘Collaborative Action’

by Tony Lee20 Oct 2015379

Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise of traditional media is empowering Republican “insurgents” and preventing establishment Republicans from compromising more with Democrats.

As the Republican establishment is trying convince
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
to run for House Speaker, Romney told David Axelrod on a recent “The Axe Files” podcast that the “extremes within our respective parties are having a louder and louder voice and demanding more attention” and “immediate action” as opposed to more “collaborative action.”

Romney said this phenomenon flows in part from the “change in the world of media.”

“There was a time when we all got the news with the same facts, if you will,” he said. “We had three networks we watched for the evening news. Most of us got newspapers. Everybody in the middle class got a newspaper, so we got the same facts whether we agreed or not with them.”

Now, according to Romney, people “get their news on the web” and “they tend to read those things which they agree with.” He said people are “not seeing the other side” and “not even getting the same facts” while “we have commentators” on left-leaning and right-leaning cable news channels “who are hyperbolic in expressing their views on issues.”

Romney lamented that more Democrats are considering themselves “liberal” and “in my party, there are more and more who feel they are more insurgent than towards the center of the party.”

“And I think that divisiveness is one of the things that has led to Washington having such a hard time getting things done,” he said.

The rise of new media outlets in the Internet age has allowed regular Americans to get access to information that the mainstream press, with the help of the both political establishments, often concealed from the general public when, as Romney noted, Americans all received the same set of facts.

In this election cycle in which outsiders on the GOP side are getting the majority of the vote, Donald Trump has bypassed the traditional media and gone over their heads to get his message directly to his supporters and American voters. Romney blasted Trump on the podcast and implied that his remarks about women, “members of the news media,” and Hispanics would hurt Republicans like Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remarks during the 2012 election cycle. Romney referred to “certain things” that were “said by Republicans during my general election race in 2012 colored the perception of the Republican Party and may have caused some people to stay at home.”

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Romney again expressed concern with the rise of conservative insurgents, saying “the challenge in our party is not so much that people have differing views on issues, as much as people have differing views about how to get those issues implemented.”

“There are some in our party who think the best approach is throwing bombs,” he said. “The problem with bomb throwing so far is that most of the bombs have landed on our own team. That doesn’t help.

After praising presidential candidates Jeb Bush,
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
, John Kasich and Chris Christie on CNN, Romney said there are others who think that the “best approach is to see if we can’t find common ground with the people across the aisle.”

“We have Paul Ryan, for instance, that’s willing to work with Democrats,” Romney said. “I think that’s a productive thing.”

The bravery of our troops was a sight to behold.  I was not brave.  I was studying only to find myself in the middle of a battle.  shocked

Most importantly 90% of the Grenadians were happy the US invaded and kicked out the Cuban backed communist regime.

86th airborne.
I met a few soldiers who were there.  One just recently, who said I was the first one he met who was there.

Between Grenada and barracks bombing in  Lebanon which occurred at the same time we finally saw a resurgence of respect for our military after the flower children clowns of the 60's thought they co opted the right to criticize our soldiers who risk life and limb to protect us.

As for Gunny Highway ( a great movie),  there were many of them on the Island.

No one would have ever believed we would have a President and a Democrat party who would make our country the villain in the world today. 
78  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Liberal news jackals on: October 15, 2015, 12:40:06 PM
I was one of the medical students "rescued" in Grenada in 1983 before I finished my training at Rutgers in NJ.

I will never forget how when a group of us brought by C 130 transport from the island of Grenada (Granada is in Spain) where brought to the air force base in South Carolina we were rushed by so called reporters.   They shoved microphones in our faces and began asking us what we thought of the invasion and Reagan.  The shock and disappointment on their faces when we overwhelmingly thanked our military, our country and our President.

Thank God for America.   

Well right at that time one reporter literally ran over to tell the other jackal reporters that there was ONE student who was criticizing Reagan for "invading a sovereign nation".   

Immediately as though they were running to escape a burning building they yanked the microphones from us and rushed the ONE "f"ing liberal to interview him so they could have what they really wanted.

A story that students were bashing Reagan and the US military.

Remember this was the first military action after Vietnam when the libs were all over the military. 

I learned then first hand how 95 % of the people could be for something but the news media, looking for a story, and especially one that has the liberal slant will focus and give loud voice to the 5% all the while covering up that it is only a small minority opinion.

The vast majority of us praised Reagan.  The news jackals couldn't stand it.

"For the first time I can say that Hillary is running.   (ccp and I had a bet on that.)  She sounds far better in this setting than other settings where she kept flopping."

Does anyone think for one second she didn't know the questions in advance?   

Yep there certainly WAS a conspiracy to inoculate Hilliary from the illegal activity with the emails much less cover-up of Benghazi.

For Sanders to stand there and with a straight face tell us lying, integrity, illegal activity is NOT important to be concerned with for someone to be the leading role model of this nation is sickening.  They are "f" pigs.

Vasserman Schultz with her great big smile.  The party knows she is their only hope so naturally lying, breaking multiple laws, and the rest just is going to be ignored.

I am sure the disgusting circus of Clinton talking about someone else jeopardizing our national security.  Or her comments about others on the stage changing their positions and there was more that I must have blocked out of my mind.

"I now owe ccp dinner and lunch on my failed predictions while we fight over breakfast" 

This is the first bet I (so far) have ever one that I am disgusted about! 

"Webb reminded me of my father's era, when the Dem party was full of honorable Dems like him."

I have read part of Joe Califano's bioptic as LBJ's aid while he was the President.  There were some of the same games the Dems play now in his politics but nothing as dishonest and communist as now. 

I don't think he would have opened up the borders to hordes of tens of millions of foreigners who don't love America like today.   And the thought that he would refuse to call out radical Islamist (like the communist we have today) is simply impossible to imagine.

I was trying to find information on this.  IN 2009 over 6,000+ were fired.  In 2013 9000+ mostly from the VA despite the rise of the Federal work force during the Obama years.

Why were so many fired in '09?   Any information on this.  I wonder if this was to pack the workforce with leftist political people:

****Firing Federal Employees Isn’t Easy, But It Can Be Done
By Kellie Lunney
May 29, 2014

Members of Congress are working overtime these days churning out, or clambering onto, legislation that would make it easier for the Veterans Affairs Department to fire senior executives. The House on May 21 passed such a bill, and there’s more to come on that subject from both sides of the Capitol and both parties. The mismanagement at VA facilities regarding patient care and the alleged cover-up in Phoenix of medical appointment scheduling delays to help top managers secure bonuses and meet performance goals for the department has consumed Washington during the last month.

Among the many questions the controversy has raised, one seems to be at the heart of the debate: Why isn’t it easier to fire career civil servants?

As is the case with most processes in the federal government, firing a career employee is not simple. There is a good reason why it isn’t so easy, or as commonplace, as it is in the private sector: There are laws protecting career civil servants from being dismissed without cause or for politically-motivated reasons. Certainly there’s a case to be made that the federal firing process (which does exist) could, and probably should, be improved. But making it too easy seriously threatens the due process long afforded to federal workers, significantly increases the risk of politically-motivated sackings, and could have adverse effects on the recruitment and retention of talented federal employees.

The federal workforce is made up of about 2.1 million employees. In fiscal 2013, only 9,559 employees were terminated or removed for discipline or performance, according to Office of Personnel Management statistics. That’s less than 1 percent of the total workforce. So, which Cabinet-level department fired the most employees (2,247) in fiscal 2013 for discipline or performance? The Veterans Affairs Department. VA is one of the largest federal agencies, but it’s not the biggest.

In our July 2012 magazine, we looked at the federal firing process for most career employees to see how it works, and why it’s underused, in Wielding the Ax. The process for senior executives is a little bit different, but they too are afforded due process under the system.

True or not how dare any Dem use this as fodder after what they did to this country with Clinton.  

A Wikipedia insert  from a DHS IP address is a big deal however.
Likewise,  Secret Service agents looking up Chafitz file.  They must all be fired. All of them except the reported few who had legitimate reasons to at his file.
These people work for us not the other way around.

Somebody has to clean up our government.   What a darn mess.  The crook at the Copyright Office (now head of a department there - as Mark Levin says, "that's right I said it!") seems like the tip of the iceberg so to speak.

Cummings is an ideologue.  He will blow this off and continue his rant about a right wing witch hunt.  It is all party for him.

The big civil rights guy is not about honesty or integrity.  It is all about advancing leftist interests.

Trying to placating him is a waste of time.  Repubs need to hit the airways every way imaginable to circumvent the left wing counterattack.

IMHO of course.

"He taxes capital gains as ordinary income which is a big mistake because such a big part of a long term gain is the inflationary component - not a gain at all."

I am surprised by that.

Doug writes,

"may have forced Republicans to actually explain what the concern about Benghazi really is"

Doug I agree but I must ask at this point when, oh when have the hapless Republicans ever been able to make a case that can convince anyone?

In addition with a media that is mostly hostile to Republicans I have no confidence this will ever happen.

Why is it the Crats and the Clintons in particular always have attack dogs ALL over ALL the airwaves but not us?

The Dem machine is ALL over the place playing this up.  McCarthy is reported to be apologizing but he gave them a front to rally behind even though we all know Hillary is a lying corrupt selfish person.

Frankly it will not matter if she is indicted.  She and her mob will not go away.
She will still run, the party will still rally behind her, and make endless bogus excuses.

Rush was right.   Despite scandal after scandal they will snake their way through this because her own party simply will not do the right thing.   Ethics, laws it makes no difference.

What a "f" n dope McCarthy is.   I don't have the faintest clue why on Earth he even gave this as an answer to Hannity's question which was basically what have those in the Houses done for the Republican Party.   You mean this is the only thing he could come up with?

What a dope.  He is even more stupid than Boehner.

I want Cruz, or Jindal, or Trump or maybe Carson.  We have lost with anyone else.

Statistically all taken by people not born here.

Hey so what that is good for all of us!  tongue

Yet the politicians seem to not really be concerned  because it is all about love and dreams.

We the citizens are selfish ass holes and all those from elsewhere are saints.

Could this guy McCarthy have been more foolish to imply the Benghazi committee was formed to just to sabotage Clinton's campaign?

How about it being formed what went on there and why the embassy was refused reinforcements and added security and why in the hell both Clinton and Obama's agents were lying about how it came about just before a Presidential election.

Why are Crats so clever and Republicans so stupid?

It will be clinton again.

the Clintons are all over the airwaves with their accomplisses in the media.

Erin Burnett interviewing Bill for the "clinton foundation" front.

A big announcement today on Yahoo news that Hill "breaks with Obama" on Obamacare:  She says she is against the Cadillac tax.  (big fn deal)

Showing her "humor" on the interview with ms analingus whatever the sleezeball's hoolywood name is.

And Bill telling us how "proud" he is of Hillary.  AFter telling one lie after another.

The endless attacks from the MSM on Carson for his comments about the Sharia law are obnoxious.
I would certainly have to question if a Hassidic Jew would be able to be President with his beliefs. 
There is NOTHING controversial about his line of reasoning.  But of course the MSM has to keep up the mantra about Republicans being bigots.
