  1. Entertainment This Could Be the Scariest, Cruelest Prank of All Time Posted on November 26, 2012 at 9:50pm by Jason Howerton The Brazilian variety show “Programa Silvio Santos” is apparently known for its “run-of-the-mill hidden camera gags,” according to Gawker. This author had never heard of the show until now. However, the show’s latest prank, titled “Ghost in the Elevator,” is absolutely horrifying and likely traumatic for the gag’s unfortunate victims. Gawker provides a quick summary of the prank: Titled “Ghost in the Elevator,” the so-called prank starts out normally enough, but soon the elevator lights start to flicker and out pops a little girl reminiscent of Samara from The Ring clutching a doll and starts to scream bloody murder and playtime is officially over. The worst part? The dystopian laugh track playing over scenes of random people losing a good ten years off their lifespan. Agreed. Watch the cruel prank below: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/this-could-be-the-scariest-cruelest-prank-of-all-time/
  2. Gun Store Owner Who Banned Obama Supporters Says 'Business Is Booming' By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. November 25, 2012 Last week, the owner of an Arizona gun shop made national headlines after it was reported that he had posted a sign and taken out a full page ad in a local newspaper that banned Obama supporters from entering his store. One week later, Cope Reynolds is cashing in on the attention. Mr. Reynolds, owner of Southwest Shooting Authority says “business is booming” after his sign and newspaper ad caught the attention of various media outlets. The sign read: “If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority. You have proven you’re not responsible enough to own a firearm.” Reynolds says he has been inundated with hundreds of calls and emails from media types and supporters. When asked about business, he replied, “I’ve been busier than a cat covering up poop on a marble floor.” The Arizona Republic spoke with Mr. Reynolds about his sign and the effect it’s had on his business: “People are saying that I’ve alienated half of our customers,” Reynolds said, laughing. “No, I haven’t. I haven't alienated any of my customers, because the people who voted for Obama don’t buy guns here. They don't come here at all. I haven’t alienated. I’ve improved things. I have packages sitting on my desk to be shipped to places like Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Idaho, Nevada and California.” Talking Points Memo asked Mr. Reynolds how he will prevent Obama supporters from entering the store and purchasing merchandise. He said he will not be conducting a litmus test to determine the customer’s political views but that he is considering giving discounts to registered Republicans and Libertarians. Seventy-Five percent of the calls he is getting are positive, Reynolds says. “You can always tell the ones that are not -- 9 out of 10 of them start out with vile and nasty language. And I guess they don’t have the intelligence to carry on a conversation like an adult.” Reynolds also revealed that he has been receiving death threats saying, “Just comes with the territory I guess.” Mr. Reynolds admits that there haven’t been any serious attempts by the Obama administration to change America’s gun laws, but he suspects that is coming now that the president has been reelected.

  3. I like the point of the cartoon, that the Republicans are as much to blame for the situation we're in. Not many of them have a back bone and actually stand for concervative fiscal policies. Boner being one of them. And yes, I spelled his name as intended.

  9. James Carville Says 80% Of Democrats Are Politically Clueless By Clash Daily / 24 November 2012 James Carville, Democrat political consultant extraordinaire – and former Bill Clinton campaign manager, has astonishingly come out and said what all good Republicans have known for decades: Not only are most Democrats politically clueless; they’re easily manipulated by the puppet masters of their party as well. Wow. James Freaking Carville. Of all people. Here’s an excerpt, as quoted on Amazon.com: “Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd. Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality. What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want. The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans. Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.” Read more: http://clashdaily.com/2012/11/james-carville-says-80-of-democrats-are-politically-clueless/#ixzz2DLDKr9Rc
  10. Finance UK Foster Couple Lose Children for Being Members of Conservative Party Posted on November 24, 2012 at 9:41am by Becket Adams A UK couple had their three foster children taken away after social workers decided that the couple’s support for the supposedly “racist” policies of the UK Independence Party (Ukip) made them “unsuitable” caregivers, The Telegraph reports. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Ukip, it’s the conservative wing of British politics. If you want an understanding of the group’s principles, look no further than Nigel Farage, founding member and party leader: “It is total and utter failure. This ship, the euro Titanic has now hit the iceberg and sadly there simply aren’t enough life boats,” said Farage, an infamously skeptical critic of the eurozone, to the European Parliament. The Ukip advocates lower taxes, limited government, freer markets, and immigration reform. However, to certain social workers in the Labour-controlled Rotherham borough, supporting the above makes you an “unsuitable” foster parent. The parents claim they were made to feel like criminals and that they had a “black mark” on them for supporting the conservative group. And now it has culminated in the loss of their foster children, one boy and two girls. Unsurprisingly, Farage unloaded on the Rotherham borough’s decision to take the children away, calling it “a bloody outrage” and “political prejudice of the very worst kind.” Tim Loughton, the former children’s minister, agrees with Farage. “I will be very concerned if decisions have been made about the children’s future that were based on misguided political correctness around ethnic considerations,” he said. . “Being a supporter of a mainstream political party is not a deal-breaker when it comes to looking after children if it means they can have a loving family home,” he added. The foster couple wishes to remain anonymous because they don’t want the children they cared for being involved. However, it has been revealed that they are both in their 50s, the husband is a retired Royal Navy reservist of more than 30 years who currently works with disabled people, and the wife is a “qualified nursery nurse.” It is also being reported that they have spent seven years acting as foster parents and have looked after about a dozen different children. So let’s do a quick recap: The husband spent three decades as a reservist in the Royal Navy and currently works with disabled people. The wife is a qualified nursery nurse. The two of them have cared for dozens of children in the past seven years. But they’re “unfit” to act as foster parents now because they support a conservative political group? That’s “tolerance.” MEP Nigel Farage (European Parliament) The Telegraph describes the moment when the couple were visited by the anti-Ukip social worker: … they received a visit out of the blue from the children’s social worker at the Labour-run council and an official from their fostering agency. They were told that the local safeguarding children team had received an anonymous tip-off that they were members of Ukip. An anonymous tip? “I was dumbfounded. Then my question to both of them was, ‘What has Ukip got to do with having the children removed?’” the wife said in the recent Telegraph article. “Then one of them said, ‘Well, Ukip have got racist policies.’ The implication was that we were racist. [The social worker] said Ukip does not like European people and wants them all out of the country to be returned to their own countries,” she said. “I’m sat there and I’m thinking, ‘What the hell is going off here?’ because I wouldn’t have joined Ukip if they thought that. I’ve got mixed race in my family. I said, ‘I am absolutely offended that you could come in my house and accuse me of being a member of a racist party.’” The wife continued: “These kids have been loved. These kids have been treated no differently to our own children. We wouldn’t have taken these children on if we had been racist.” But despite her words, the boy was taken away the next day and the two girls were removed at the end of the week. The wife said the social worker told her: “We would not have placed these children with you had we known you were members of Ukip because it wouldn’t have been the right cultural match.” The wife said she was left “bereft,” adding: “We felt like we were criminals. From having a little baby in my arms, suddenly there was an empty cot. I knew she wouldn’t have been here forever, but usually there is a build-up of several weeks. I was in tears.” Her husband added: “If we were moving the children on to happier circumstances we would be feeling warm and happy. To have it done like that, it’s beyond the pale.” Nigel Farage (Getty) A spokesman for Rotherham metropolitan borough council issued the following statement on the matter: After a group of sibling children were placed with agency foster carers, issues were raised regarding the long-term suitability of the carers for these particular children. With careful consideration, a decision was taken to move the children to alternative care. We continue to keep the situation under review. But “review” or not, Ukip party leader Farage is furious with the decision. “I am outraged politically and very upset for them. I think this is the kind of thing where we need some sort of decree from a Government minister that Ukip is not a racist party,” Farage said. David Goosey, the chairman of the trustees at Community Foster care, an independent fostering charity, said: If this is accurate and there are no other extraneous matters that have concerned the authorities, then it is completely ridiculous and no self-respecting authority should be stopping people fostering on the grounds of their membership of Ukip. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/uk-couple-loses-foster-children-for-supporting-conservative-party/

  14. Faith 8 Little-Known Facts About Thanksgiving Posted on November 22, 2012 at 9:25pm by Chris Field A year ago, in the November 2011 issue of TheBlaze Magazine, we published the “Top 8 Little-Known Facts About Thanksgiving,” written by our own Meredith Jessup. We present it here as a little Thanksgiving gift to you. Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at TheBlaze. ——— #8: WHY DO WE EAT TURKEY? Historians believe that first Thanksgiving feast included turkey, waterfowl, venison, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin and squash. So how did turkey become a fixture of modern Thanksgiving feasts? It may have something to do with Pilgrim Gov. William Bradford’s own accounts in which he noted that, “besides waterfowl, there was great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many.” Thus, a tasty tradition was born. ******** #7: WHERE DID THE PRESIDENTIAL TRADITION OF PARDONING A TURKEY COME FROM? No one actually knows. Many credit Harry S Truman for being the first president to pardon a turkey, but the Truman Presidential Library admits there’s no documentation to substantiate that claim. Truman’s successor, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, admitted he ate the two turkeys presented to him at the White House for Thanksgiving each year during his two terms in office. When President John F. Kennedy was presented with a turkey wearing a sign reading, “Good Eatin’, Mr. President,” Kennedy simply responded, “Let’s just keep him.” When President Ronald Reagan was asked about possible pardons for Lt. Col. Oliver North and national security advisor John Poindexter in the Iran-Contra affair in 1987, he joked about pardoning a turkey, but the practice of “officially” pardoning the bird wasn’t formalized until 1989. Since then, each president has “pardoned” a turkey each year, allowing it to be spared from the roaster to instead live out the rest of its natural life. . Some pardoned poultry have been shipped off to local parks around Washington and even as far as the Disneyland resort in California. In 2010, the turkeys pardoned by President Obama were sent to live at Mount Vernon, the estate and home of our first president, George Washington. ******** #6: GIVING THANKS FOR AMERICA Since the days of the Pilgrims, festivals of Thanksgiving for autumn harvest were observed sporadically in local communities across the American colonies. But in 1789, a Massachusetts congressman, Elias Boudinot, proposed that the new country should observe a national day of Thanksgiving to thank God for blessing the American people with freedoms preserved in our Constitution. As a result, President George Washington proclaimed that all Americans could observe “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” on Thursday, Nov. 26, 1789. The tradition continued until 1815 when President James Madison declared that April 13 would be a national day of Thanksgiving. Madison’s was the last such proclamation issued by a president until Abraham Lincoln did so in 1862. ******** #5: IT TAKES A WOMAN’S TOUCH One of the most ardent advocates for an annual national day of Thanksgiving was Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of Ladies Magazine and “Godey’s Lady’s Book.” Hale began lobbying for such a day in 1827 by printing articles in her magazines and writing to elected officials. After 36 years of persistence, Hale won her battle. Buoyed by the Union victory at Gettysburg, President Lincoln proclaimed that Nov. 26, 1863 would be a national Thanksgiving Day and that Thanksgiving would be observed each year on the fourth Thursday of November. ******** #4: SAVE THE DATE Since Lincoln’s original proclamation, only one president has failed to mark Thanksgiving Day on the fourth Thursday in November. As president, Franklin D. Roosevelt used his authority to reschedule Thanksgiving. In 1939, FDR caused a stir by declaring that Thanksgiving would occur on the third Thursday in November instead of the fourth. Why? Roosevelt thought moving the holiday up by one week would help Depression-era merchants by giving them more selling days before Christmas. Despite popular resistance that objected to rescheduling Thanksgiving Day events such as football games and parades, Roosevelt repeated the switch again in 1940. By the following year, however, Congress fought back with a joint resolution officially establishing the fourth Thursday of November as a national holiday. ******** #3: PILGRIMS AND INDIANS Having landed at Plymouth, Mass., too late in the season to plant crops, the Pilgrims survived their first winter in the New World only with the help of local native Indian tribes. Despite losing half their population during the winter of 1620, food and farming assistance from Squanto and the Wampanoag tribe helped the Pilgrims build the colony at Plymouth. For this, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God and Gov. William Bradford praised the leader as a “[special] instrument sent from God.” ******** #2: A DAY OF PRAYER AND THANKS The following year, the Plymouth colonists joined the Wampanoag tribe and Squanto to sign a treaty of peace and friendship. Squanto helped the colonists produce viable crops, and after a successful harvest in the autumn of 1621, Gov. William Bradford proclaimed a day of prayer and thanks. Two years later, drought would once again put the colony in jeopardy. After the Puritan colonists prayed for rain and it was delivered, the Pilgrims gave thanks, once again tying the social event to their faith in God. ******** #1: WAS PLYMOUTH REALLY THE SITE OF OUR NATION’S FIRST THANKSGIVING? South of Plymouth, the English settlers in Virginia celebrated their own day of thanks in November 1619, a year before the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth. The 38 settlers who disembarked from their ships on the banks of the James River declared at that time (from the original text): “Wee ordaine that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned for plantacon in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God.” http://www.theblaze.com/stories/8-little-known-facts-about-thanksgiving/
  15. Elmo Accuser Recants His Recant Sheldon Stephens goes back to original story By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Nov 19, 2012 10:44 AM CST (Newser) – The Sesame Street sex scandal is indeed far from over: Sheldon Stephens, the 23-year-old who says Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash had sex with him when he was 16 and Clash was 45, recanted those allegations last week—but now he's recanting his recant, TMZ reports. Over the weekend, TMZ reported that Clash had paid Stephens $125,000 to recant his story; now Stephens has met with his lawyers to tell them he was indeed pressured into it (he was reportedly crying during the negotiations while saying he didn't want to sign), and he's now switching back to his original story. He also wants to undo the settlement, and sources say he's happy to give up the $125,000. Last week, the Smoking Gun took a look at Stephens, a struggling model/actor who has been arrested a few times on charges ranging from passing a bad check to reckless driving to robbing a former employer at knifepoint. http://www.newser.com/story/157862/elmo-accuser-recants-his-recant.html

  17. Thanksgiving eve surprise: Feds to block off 9M acres for spotted owl By: Audrey Hudson 11/21/2012 06:43 PM The Obama administration announced with little fanfare Thanksgiving eve plans to lock up nine million acres of land for the endangered Northern Spotted Owl. The plan would double the amount of public forest lands proposed by the Bush administration for the owl’s habitat in Oregon, Washington and Northern California, and is expected to severely limit commercial activities like logging. Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said he is concerned the plan will cost taxpayers millions of dollars. “Expanding the Northern Spotted Owl’s critical habitat will further endanger the timber industry, the thousands of jobs that the industry supports, and forest health,” Hastings said. http://www.humanevents.com/2012/11/21/thanksgiving-eve-surprise-feds-to-block-off-9m-acres-for-spotted-owl/

  20. Business Here’s the New Electric Car Chrysler Expects to Lose Money on (And Here’s Why They’re Making it) Posted on November 21, 2012 at 4:14pm by Becket Adams The Fiat 500e (Courtesy PR Newswire) Chrysler will soon introduce the world to its very first battery-powered vehicle, the Fiat 500e. However, far more interesting than the fact that it’s their first battery-powered car is the fact that Chrysler expects to lose between $8,000 and $9,000 for each one it sells, according to the Wall Street Journal. Why would they produce a car that’s sure to lose money? One word: California. Let us explain. California has one of the largest car markets in the country (it accounts for nearly 10 percent of all U.S. auto sales). California also has a strict zero-emission requirement. So unless Chrysler offers a model that meets these increasingly stringent emissions standards, California could bar them from selling cars in the state. Pretty great, right? But wait! There’s more! Ten other states, including New York, New Jersey, and Maryland, have followed California’s lead and have enacted similar zero-emission requirements. And much like California, Chrysler could be barred from selling cars in these states unless it offers a vehicle that meets these standards. Problem is, nobody seems to want zero-emission vehicles. California “can make us sell a minimum amount of cars, but unfortunately, they can’t make people buy them, or even get our own dealers to order them from us,” Kevin Kinnaw, Toyota’s U.S. manager of regulatory affairs, told the Wall Street Journal. The Fiat 500e’s interior was apparently inspired by Speed Race (Courtesy PR Newswire) In short, in order to stay compliant with these various carbon emission laws, automakers must design and produce cars that no one will buy. “So far this year, only about 26,000 electric vehicles have been sold in the entire U.S., a tiny fraction of the 11.9 million cars and light trucks Americans have purchased,” the Journal report notes. “About one in four electric vehicles sold are in California,” the report adds. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/heres-the-new-electric-car-chrysler-fully-expects-to-lose-money-on-and-heres-why-theyre-making-it/
