MAJOR DEVELOPMENT: Supreme Court knocks down affirmative action...

The Supreme Court has upheld Michigan's affirmative action ban, ruling that the state has the right to determine whether racial preferences can be considered in college admissions. 

In a 6-2 ruling on Tuesday, the justices said that a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory. The Supreme Court ruled that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution to bar public colleges and universities from using race as a factor in admissions. 

Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, suggested that right extends even beyond college policies. 

"There is no authority in the federal constitution or in the [courts'] precedents for the judiciary to set aside Michigan laws that commit to the voters the determination whether racial preferences may be considered in governmental decisions, in particular with respect to school admissions," he wrote. 

Kennedy said voters chose to eliminate racial preferences because they deemed them unwise. 

"This case is not about how the debate about racial preferences should be resolved. It is about who may resolve it," Kennedy said.

The scary truth about your toothbrush

(NY Post) -- Your humble old toothbrush might look innocent enough. But it’s a huge bacteria magnet.

A toothbrush can contain over 10 million bacteria including E. coli and Staph, says a University of Manchester study.

“In an unbrushed mouth, there can be as many germs as a dirty bathroom floor,” prosthodontist Dr. Ann Wei told

Your toothbrush can be contaminated by the water splashed when we wash our hands, or worse, by bacteria from an open-flushed toilet. Eww.

Nasties that fall from toilet spray remain airborne long enough to settle on surfaces throughout the bathroom.

And if you drop your toothbrush on the floor, the five second rule does not apply.

It picks up airborne bacteria that has settled on the floor and everything else that people traipse through via their feet.

Now that we’ve totally grossed you out, are you ready to start giving your toothbrush the respect it deserves? Here’s how to keep your toothbrush clean.

ALERT -- Why Did Obama Hire a Top Criminal Attorney for White House Counsel? (Must Read)


(by Keith Koffler, White House Dossier) -- If I suddenly told you I was hiring Johnny Cochran to be my attorney, you’d think – well, first of all, you’d think it was peculiar, since Johnny Cochran is dead. Maybe I’m looking to save some money. But, assuming I mean the metaphorical Johnny Cochran, you’d be pretty sure I’m in some kind of really serious trouble.

Or if your wife mentioned she had hired a lawyer, and you found out the attorney specializes in . . . divorce. You’d probably start checking some apartment listings.

Which brings us to the strange case of President Obama’s decision to hire Neil Eggleston to be his new White House Counsel.

Eggleston is the kind of guy you go to when someone tells you, “time to lawyer up.” He’s a veteran at cleaning up ethics messes for politicians, most notably Bill Clinton, whom he aided during the Whitewater probes and the Monica Lewinsky affair, double entendre intended.

But that’s not nearly all. He represented Rahm Emanuel during the scandal surrounding former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, as well as Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and George W. Bush political director Sara Taylor when scandals touched them, Clinton Cabinet members Federico Pena and Alexis Herman during corruption probes, and various business people involved in “complex criminal investigations” according to the New York Times.

Which begs and pleads the question, is Obama looking for more protection for the White House from the various GOP congressional probes, or is he aware of the possibility that something much, much worse could break?

UNSETTLING -- A Map of Every Nuke-Scale Asteroid Strike From the Last Decade

(by Adam Mann, -- Though dinosaur-killing impacts are rare, large asteroids routinely hit the Earth. In the visualization above, you can see the location of 26 space rocks that slammed into our planet between 2000 and 2013, each releasing energy equivalent to that of some of our most powerful nuclear weapons.

The video comes from the B612 Foundation, an organization that wants to build and launch a telescopethat would spot civilization-ending asteroids to give humans a heads up in trying to deflect them. To figure out where asteroids were hitting our planet, B612 used data from a worldwide network of instruments that detect infrasound, low-frequency sound waves traveling through the atmosphere. Such measurements have been used since the 1950s to detect nuclear bomb explosions and can also pick up the tremendous burst of a bolide tearing through our atmosphere.

The Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, which operates the network, recently released the location of these asteroid strikes, which gives scientists another datapoint in understanding the frequency with which these events happen. In recent years, there has been a growing consensus that the Earth gets hit by enormous space rocks more often than we previously thought. The 26 strikes in the video above were each between 1 and 600 kilotons. For comparison, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima exploded with an energy of 16 kilotons, and the U.S.’s most powerful nuclear weapon, the B83 bomb, has a yield of up to 1.2 megatons. Of course, comparing asteroids to nuclear bombs is a bit misleading; asteroids generate a moving shockwave that can cause far more destruction than the rock itself.

Shock! Officials Now Suggest MH370 May Have Landed... Where Are All The Survivors?

The plane has been missing for more than six weeks and sources are now considering the previously unthinkable prospect that it has landed somewhere.

The plane has been missing for more than six weeks and sources are now considering the previously unthinkable prospect that it has landed somewhere.

(by Richard Shears, UK Daily Mail) -- The fruitless search for the missing Malaysian Airlines jet might have to start all over again from scratch if no clues to its fate are found in coming days, it was claimed today.

The international team searching the Indian Ocean for the Boeing 777 are now considering the seemingly impossible scenario of the aircraft having 'landed' somewhere, instead of crashing in the southern Indian Ocean.

'We may have to regroup soon to look into this possibility if no positive results come back in the next few days,' sources within the International Investigation Team were quoted as telling the New Straits Times today.

While the sources have not suggested which country the aircraft might have landed - or crashed - in, the possibility that an entirely new search in a different area is in line with suggestions by the Mail weeks ago that alleged sightings of a low-flying aircraft could have located it in a different place than the ocean.

'The thought of it landing somewhere else is not impossible, as we have not found a single debris that could be linked to MH370,' sources were quoted as telling the paper.

'However, the possibility of a specific country hiding the plane when more than 20 nations are searching for it, seems absurd,' said the sources.

But they admitted that it was difficult to determine if the plane had really ended in the Indian Ocean, despite calculations seeming to point to that direction.

The Mail reported early in the search that fishermen and villagers living in north east Malaysia had filed official statements with police claiming to have seen - or heard - a low-flying aircraft at the time when MH370 lost all contact with ground control.

Their descriptions of a 'very loud engine' and headlights like those switched on by an aircraft about to land at night suggested that the aircraft was flying to the west, across jungle, very fast, at a low altitude.

The sources told the government-controlled paper that it was difficult to determine if the plane had really ended in the Indian Ocean, although calculations pointed to that direction.

The Malaysian-led investigation team, along with experts from Inmarsat and the UK's Air Accidents Investigation Branch, had to rely on an Inmarsat communications satellite, which did not provide any definite details, including the aircraft's direction, altitude and speed.

One of the sources told the New Straits Times: 'A communications satellite is meant for communication...the name is self explanatory.

'The reason investigators were forced to adopt a new algorithm to calculate the last known location of MH370 was because there was no global positioning system following the aircraft as the transponder went off 45 minutes into the flight.'

The source added that the international team was looking at adding more ships and aircraft to the existing search area in the Indian Ocean - as well as widening the area because there were fears that searchers had been 'looking for the plane in the wrong place'.

'We can't focus on one place too long as the ocean is very big, although the search team has been following the leads received and analysed.

'It is by luck if we find the wreckage using the Bluefin-21 (the US-owned underwater search vehicle). 

'There is no physical evidence and we are totally depending on scientific calculations since day one, including the pings.'

UPDATE -- Homeland Security to Purchase 25 Million Shotgun Rounds

DHS likely gearing up for mass panic in America with perpetual ammo purchases

DHS likely gearing up for mass panic in America with perpetual ammo purchases

(by Kit Daniels, -- Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is seeking an ammunition dealer who can provide 25 million shotgun rounds to the agency over a five year period, adding to its already enormous arsenal of ammo.

The solicitation posted on states that U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a department under DHS, is seeking “shotgun ammunition for use by all applicable agencies in the Department of Homeland Security,” more specifically three million rounds of shotgun slugs per year and two million rounds of buckshot per year for five years.

“The ammunition will be used as appropriate at all Department of Homeland Security (DHS or department) component locations nationwide and outside the CONUS [continental United States,]” the notice reads.

This is an excessive amount that not only reveals the vast scope of the emerging police state but also fuels fears that DHS is preparing for large-scale mass panic in America.

And as we’ve exhaustively documented in the past, mass ammunition purchases by DHS are becoming quite common.

Earlier this year, Homeland Security stockpiled over 141,000 rounds of .308 Winchester ammunition, a rifle round well-known for its consistency in long-range shooting.

The agency requested 168 grain rounds in particular, which have an effective range of 800 to 900 yards.

And last year, DHS released a market survey asking companies if they were able to provide two million rounds of ammunition under short notice.

The survey also asked companies for both their capabilities in producing “large quantity orders of any training caliber specified” within two months and what their lead time would be for a single order of two million rounds.

It has been estimated that over the past couple of years, DHS ammunition purchases have totaled over 2.5billion rounds, with much of the ammunition being hollow point rounds known for their effectiveness at stopping human targets.

DHS also spent $80 million on armed guards to protect government facilities in New York last year and even sought more guards for federal buildings in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

More recently, the agency spent over $58 million for security details for two Social Security offices in Maryland.

But that’s not all. Back in March DHS began taking delivery of hundreds and perhaps even thousands of recently retrofitted Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (MRAP) once used in Iraq and Afghanistan but now destined to roam the streets of America.

While these expenditures reveal that DHS is gearing up for civil unrest, the bulk ammunition purchases in particular are also exacerbating current ammunition shortages across America in what can be described as back-door gun control.

And it isn’t just DHS making large-scale ammunition purchases.

Last February, the United States Postal Service announced it was seeking “proposals for assorted small arms ammunition.” After intense scrutiny, USPS later claimed that the mass purchases were for its Postal Police.

But there is a massive arms build-up by just about every federal agency in existence. Even the U.S. Dept. of Education has been stockpiling firearms and ammunition since at least 2001.

Considering how well-armed Bureau of Land Management agents were during the recent standoff at Bundy Ranch, the increased militarization of government agencies is frightening indeed.

H/T: Rick Wells,

Note: Despite the overwhelming evidence that DHS and other federal agencies are clearly engaged in a massive arms build-up, with billions of rounds, armored vehicles and cutting-edge weaponry, the mainstream media has continued to either outright deny or downplay this obvious build-up. For example, in an article entitled Homeland Security’s Ammunition Purchases Should Not Worry You, the Military Times claimed that the ammo build-up was not excessive. The article also suggested that having 100,000 DHS armed agents in America, which is a de facto standing army, was not a bad thing. Other media outlets, such as Media Matters and Raw Story, have also made similar statements. Yet it is becoming crystal clear what is happening in America as these articles below present a glaring trend:

Shocking Graph: Reagan’s Recovery Vs. Obama’s “Recovery”…

(Weasel Zippers) -- It’s almost like conservative economic policies work.

(IJ Review) -- 

. . . Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now:

- Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7%

- Inflation (Consumer Price Index) was at 13.5% versus 2.7%

- Interest rates (prime rate) was at 21.5% versus 3.25%

In other words, Reagan inherited a bigger mess.

Russians inspected 'demolished' US nuclear launch facilities in Montana...

Which begs the question: What the ....?!

Which begs the question: What the ....?!

(Great Falls Tribune) -- Russian inspectors visited Malmstrom Air Force Base earlier this month to verify that nuclear missile silos had been eliminated in accordance with the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

The Russian inspectors verified April 9 that 18 Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launch facilities had been eliminated.

Those launch facilities were part of the former 564th Missile Squadron, which was deactivated in 2008. All 50 of the squadron’s launch facilities will be demolished.

The initial phase of elimination began in January.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Air Force Civil Engineering Center selected Bryan Construction Inc. of Colorado Springs, Colo., as the demolition contractor. Current estimates call for eliminating the 50 launch facilities, located in Toole, Pondera, Teton and Chouteau counties, by early 2015.

The contractor will eliminate the launch facilities by filling them with earth and gravel. Gravel fill is a more effective and environmentally friendly method of elimination that’s also faster and more economical than those used in the past under the original START treaty. The work doesn’t pose any threat to public safety or the environment, according to Malmstrom officials.

The verification immediately reduces the number of ICBM launchers the U.S. is accountable for under New START requirements.

The New START treaty, ratified by the Senate in 2010, limits the United States and Russia to no more than 1,550 deployed warheads; 800 deployed and nondeployed ICBM launchers, submarine-launched ballistic missile launchers and heavy bombers; and to have reduced their deployed ICBMs, SLBMs and heavy bombers equipped for nuclear weapons to no more than 700. The treaty deadline is February 2018.

The Type Two inspection gives Russian inspectors 12 hours to visit the eliminated sites and confirm that each launcher closure door has been removed and that the launcher tube is filled with earth and gravel.

Do You Know How Much Ammunition The DHS Has Collected?

And the DHS is not alone...

And the DHS is not alone...

(by B. Christopher Agee, WCJ) -- As Homeland Security’s stockpile of weapons and ammunition grows larger, recent reports indicate the department is soliciting bids for 25 million rounds of shotgun ammunition over the next five years.

According to an online solicitation, the firepower will be collected “for use by all applicable agencies in the Department of Homeland Security” and “will be used as appropriate at all Department of Homeland Security … component locations nationwide and outside the [contiguous United States.]”

While the potential use of such ammunition is ambiguous, the overwhelming amount of ammunition being requested is not.

“The estimated quantities for slug ammunition types of ammunition are approximately three million rounds per year and for buckshot ammunition are approximately two million rounds per year,” the posting explains.

This is hardly the first such solicitation made by the agency in recent months. So far in 2014, DHS has reportedly amassed a huge reserve of long-range artillery shells. Just months prior to that, reports indicate the department surveyed manufacturers in an effort to determine which could reliably produce millions of rounds of ammunition within a limited timeframe.

Some estimates place the total stockpile of ammunition at more than 2.5 billion rounds, a large percentage of which consists of devastating hollow-point bullets.

The Bundy Ranch standoff revealed the propensity of at least one federal agency to bear arms against American citizens. Bureau of Land Management officers engaged in a standoff with the Cliven Bundy, using force against several members of his family, in their effort to collect a debt.

It was obvious from that incident that the DHS is not the only agency with weapons, ammunition, and willing officers at the ready.

Of course, that situation also motivated hundreds of passionate patriots to respond in kind, resulting in the agents’ retreat – at least temporarily. Facing an entity with billions of rounds of ammunition, however, would be an entirely different proposition.

Documentation proves virtually any of the federal government’s many agencies – including the Department of Education and the U.S. Postal Service – are engaged in collecting ammunition.

While there is no indication these bullets are being amassed for use against U.S. citizens, the sheer number of rounds combined with recent exhibitions of federal force is enough to cause concern among already wary Americans.

Another Bundy Ranch Situation Brewing? Texas Rancher Says BLM “Won’t Talk to Us or Be Straight With Us”

On the Record:

Texans are closely watching the battle between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and federal authorities, as the Bureau of Land Management may be eyeing 90,000 acres along the Lone Star State-Oklahoma border.


19:33:42 Well, in the beginning, they didn’t really want it and they asked me to file a color of title for it and all of that they would get back to me and they told me they had no money to administer it back then and to administer it or do anything with it, and so it’s just been kind of open land where everyone that wanted to has come and hunted and fished and recreated on it. They have really not done anything to it and then all of the sudden here in the last six months, they have shown back up and they are talking about taking another 90,000 acres by using my court case as the precedent to seize the other land. 19:34:19

19:35:01 They won’t talk to us or be straight with us as to what their plans are. 19:35:08…19:35:13 I bought the land in 1979. As a matter of fact, I borrowed a portion of the money from Farmer’s Home Administration, a government agency, to purchase the land from my great aunt. And they came out and inspected the land and said it was all here, surveyed it and forced me to buy a title policy and when we lost it, they refused to pay, even though they said that they guaranteed the title to this place whenever I was buying it and so I have continued to have to pay for this land or the federal government would seize everything else I had. I made my last payment this January on land that I lost in 1984 in a lawsuit. 19:35:52

Reid Continues Crusade Against Rancher: “Something Is Going to Happen” to Stop Cliven Bundy

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”

Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.”

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., disagreed with Reid, telling KSNV that these militia members are “patriots” and took issue with how the U.S. Bureau of Land Management handled the situation.

“I take more issues with the BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of individuals with snipers. I’m talking to people and groups that are there at the event. Your own government with sniper lenses on you. It made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller told KSNV.

The junior Nevada senator also stated that he wants congressional hearings held about BLM trying to round-up Bundy’s cattle.

Michelle Obama: Obama Family Sundays Are More For Napping Than Church

By Cheryl K. Chumley, The Washington Times

First lady Michelle Obama told “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” co-hosts Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa that Sundays for the first family have become more about napping, downtime and family time than about church or godly worship.

She made the comments in response to a question from the co-hosts during the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, when they asked for a description of a typical Obama family Sunday, Breitbart reported.

Mrs. Obama said: “We try to go to church as much as possible, but when the kids get older, you know, Sunday is some kind of practice, rehearsal, birthday party, you know. So getting us all together on a Sunday is becoming more difficult now that the girls are getting older. But if we’re not going to church, we really try to use Sunday as family downtime where we can kind of breathe and catch up and maybe take a little nap every now and then if we’re not working.”

IRS awarded $1M in employee bonuses to 1,100 workers who owed back taxes


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1 million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said Tuesday.

More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012.

George's report said the bonus program doesn't violate federal regulations, but it's inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws.

"These awards are designed to recognize and reward IRS employees for a job well done, and that is appropriate, because the IRS should encourage good performance," George said. "However, while not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS's charge of ensuring the integrity of the system of tax administration."

Other examples of misconduct by workers getting bonuses included misusing government credit cards for travel, drug use, violent threats and fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits.

Today is Earth Day. President Obama will mark the day by flying from Washington, D.C. to Washington state — 2,328 miles, generating 568,032 pounds of carbon emissions at 244 pounds per mile — and then beginning his week-long trip to Asia, flying tonight to Tokyo — 4,792 miles, an additional 1,169,248 pounds of carbon emissions. The two trips add up to 1.73 million pounds of carbon or 868.64 tons.

Obama EPA Chief: Climate Change Is More Important Than Approving Keystone Pipeline…

(The Hill) -- Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy on Tuesday sought to downplay the importance of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, and said the Obama administration will continue to focus on the bigger problem of climate change.

McCarthy downplayed the significance of the pipeline during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” less than one week after the State Department stopped the clock with 14 days left in the 90-day interagency review of the $5.4 billion project.

The move sent Capitol Hill into a frenzy as advocates of the pipeline assailed the administration for punting on a decision they say will create jobs. But while her “Morning Joe” interview was promoted as a chance to talk about Keystone, McCarthy said Tuesday that the administration is focused on the “big prize” of climate change.

“I think it’s important to recognize that Keystone is a project, but we have a lot more going on and one of the biggest challenges we are facing is climate change,” McCarthy said. “We can’t lose sight of that.”

“We have an entire administration strategy that the president laid out that is looking at issues of energy and climate and environment. We want to keep our eyes on the big prize right now, and that big prize is climate change.”

OUTRAGEOUS -- Maryland Dem Gov Candidate: Serving In Iraq War Not A “Real Job”…

A Democratic candidate for governor of Maryland is defending comments he made Monday in which he suggested his opponent, an Iraq war veteran, was not up to the task of a “real job.”

Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler drew ire from a veterans’ group after he made the comments about his opponent for the Democratic nomination, Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, at an event held by the Tech Council of Maryland.

During the event, Gansler was asked what the state had learned from the rollout of ObamaCare. Maryland’s state-run exchange has been particularly troubled, and earlier this month the exchange’s board of directors voted to replace technology in the system with one used in in Connecticut's exchange instead of fixing its current system or partnering with the federal government.

Gansler said the website’s woes prove Maryland needs someone who has leadership experience and worked with budgets; someone, he claimed, unlike Brown.

“I’m running against somebody who has never managed anybody, never run anything, his ads are about how he’s a lawyer in Iraq, and that’s all fine and good but this is a real job,” Gansler said.

Gansler was referencing a recent campaign ad by Brown, in which he talks about serving in the Army ROTC, the Army Reserves and being deployed to Iraq.

Gansler’s comments were slammed by a veterans’ group, whose chairman told the Baltimore Sun his comments were “slime ball politics.”

Sean Hannity Fires Back At Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz Over Rancher Land Battle Coverage

HANNITY: Welcome back to HANNITY. I've had enough with NBC News. Over the past couple of weeks they spent countless segments attacking little old me. Here is just one example of leftwing loudmouth, kind of a buffoon, Ed Schultz criticizing this show's coverage of which I'm proud of, of the Bundy ranch standoff with the feds.


ED SCHULTZ, MSNBC HOST: FOX News and Sean Hannity should be ashamed of their coverage of this lawbreaker and this law-breaking Nevada rancher and his family. I think Sean Hannity is cheerleading for armed conflict with the federal government. HANNITY and Fox News are playing with fire.


HANNITY: The federal governor, their lack of proportionality over a bill, are they going to send 200 armed agents to everybody'd house, snipers to everybody's house, really? We're not ashamed of our coverage. We're actually proud of our coverage.

Now, the number one thing that Ed Schultz said was true, but guess what? If I was a network exec at NBC news I might be ashamed of having this man work for me.


SCHULTZ: The Republicans lie. They want see you dead. They'd rather make money off your dead corpse.

You're damn right Dick Cheney's heart is a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back into them.

Do you know what they're talking about, like this right wing slut, what is her name, Laura Ingraham? Yes, she's a talk slut.

What about that? Get out of here. How about that? I'm sure there is a seven second delay on that one.


HANNITY: That tape speaks for itself. But unfortunately the buffoon Ed Schultz wasn't the only on-air talent over at NBC that set their hateful sights on me last week. Watch this.


AL SHAPRTON, MSNBC HOST: The Tea Party is paying up and radio talkers are towing the radio line. Take Sean Hannity, for example. The Tea Party backed Heritage Foundation began sponsoring HANNITY in 2008 and paid $1.3 million for the deal. Would you believe it? Soon Hannity was fundraising for Tea Party Patriots.


HANNITY: Let's just stop for one little minute here and look at the guy right there, Al Sharpton, making his assertions. Mob rat, Al Sharpton? Maybe you should take a good, hard look in the mirror because a few weeks ago we got our hands on that little video right there. Young Al Sharpton seen, undercover footage allegedly being offered to buy cocaine. He didn't call the police in that case as far as we know. Here is some of the reverend's lowlights himself throughout the years. Reverend, you started it. Let the games begin.


SHARPTON: You ain't nothing!


HANNITY: Let me see, I wonder how Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, and Matt Lauer feel about that guy that works for their news brand. Pretty unbelievable.
