That big explosion over Siberia?
(See the video dump below.) Looks like it was an explosion on the ground. Reflected light. [rdbrewer]

Amy Ridenour's National Center Blog: Black Activists Speak Out against Obama Amnesty Agenda
"His position on illegal immigration and reform is not tenable given the numerous sources of information that warn of the negative impact of immigration reform on black Americans and low-income Americans." [rdbrewer]

@EllyPrizeman badass scientist shirt update [rdbrewer]

30,000 missing emails from IRS' Lerner recovered

Sam Vaknin videos help to understand what drives Obama
"[A]ttention of any kind – positive or negative – constitutes Primary Narcissistic Supply. Infamy is as sought after as fame, being notorious is as good as being renowned." I've linked this before, but it's a good reminder. He's addicted to narcissistic supply; it's all about him, and there is very little he won't do to keep himself at the top of the headlines. He doesn't care about harm to individuals or our system of government.
Issues in Narcissistic Supply
Narcissistic Supply: Narcissist's Drug [rdbrewer]


Peggy Noonan: The Nihilist in the White House
"The assumption of history’s inevitable vindication is sharper in the current White House, due to general conceit—they really do think they possess a higher wisdom and play a deeper game—and the expectation that liberal historians will write the history. The illusion becomes a form of license." [rdbrewer]

Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: A Crash in the Mojave
Video. He talks about SpaceShipTwo. More at BillWhittle.com. [rdbrewer]



Robert Tracinski: President Palpatine: Obama Dissolves the Old Republic
"[M]edia and Hollywood types have always convinced themselves, as George Lucas did, that their villains were metaphors for George W. Bush or a cautionary tale about the evils of the right. But here we are, the Old Republic is being dissolved, and it’s their hero who is doing it. They find themselves on the side of the Empire." [rdbrewer]

David Gergen, CNN: Obama's dangerous move on immigration
"Sadly, we instead have an action from the White House that will cast a dark shadow over prospects for legislative cooperation, falls short of what the immigrant population had hoped and steers us into deep, unknown waters in our governance." [rdbrewer]


Nigel Farage predicts more Tory defections after seeing Mark Reckless take his seat in the Commons as Ukip's second MP, sweeping away a Tory majority of almost 10,000 in Rochester
Mark Reckless held his Rochester and Strood seat after changing parties. More from the NYT. [rdbrewer]
Obama I: How Many Armies does Congress Have? Republican leadership: We'll Demonstrate our Power by smashing Tea Partiers against Amnesty.. Laughable question: If several million of us stop paying taxes, can we expect to be amnestied in 5 years? [krak/t]
Video: California sheriff criticizes Obama in immigration [rdbrewer]


Bryan Preston: Email Proves that White House, DOJ Targeted Reporter Sharyl Attkisson
"Attorney General Holder’s top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, called Attkisson 'out of control.' Schmaler told White House Depute Press Secretary Eric Schultz that he intended to call CBS news anchor Bob Schieffer.... Schultz also told Schmaler that he was working with reporter Susan Davis, then at the National Journal, to target Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA)." [rdbrewer]

Ashe Schow: Hirsi Ali slams feminism's 'trivial BS'
"'I condemn whole-heartedly the trivial bullshit it is to go after a man who makes a scientific breakthrough and all that we as women — organized women — do is to fret about his shirt?'" [rdbrewer]


Ed Whelan: Lindsey Graham’s Myopia
"So Graham is supporting a crazy regime in which liberal nominees would need only a simple majority to get confirmed in a Democrat-controlled Senate but in which conservative nominees would need 60 votes to get confirmed in a Republican-controlled Senate." [rdbrewer]

Discovery.com: Amazing Nano Sculptures Only Visible by Electron Microscope [rdbrewer]

Quartz: This is every active satellite orbiting earth
Interactive graphic. Via @MelissaTweets. [rdbrewer]


Sean Davis: BuzzFeed’s Executive Chairman Is Invested In Uber’s Competition
"In his broadside against Uber’s dirt-digging executive, Ben Smith never disclosed that his boss, one of BuzzFeed’s top executives, has an ownership stake in one of Uber’s competitors. Nor is there any such conflict-of-interest disclosure in any of BuzzFeed’s numerous other hit pieces on Uber...." [rdbrewer]


Ashe Schow: Alan Dershowitz: Campus sexual assault rules 'preclude a defense' for the accused
"'Harvard's policy was written by people who think sexual assault is so heinous a crime that even innocence is not a defense,' Dershowitz said." [rdbrewer]


Jim Geraghty: Obama to Unilaterally Rewrite Immigration Policy With 38% Support
"If, as you suspect, President Obama wants Republicans to try to impeach him, this raises the disturbing prospect that the next two years will feature Obama attempting to provoke an impeachment fight by committing more and more acts that violate the Constitution." [rdbrewer]


Alex Griswold: Ron Fournier On Executive Amnesty: ‘A Lot’ Of Hispanics ‘See This As Pandering’
"'We’re missing the big picture here,' he told the panel. 'We’re all assuming Hispanics are going to be for this.... Hispanics know when they’re being pandered to and they’re being used politically, and they can see through this.'" [rdbrewer]
Republicans plan to discuss plans to find out if there is anything in their power to challenge our Emperor. Constitution apparently written in ancient Macedonian language, and therefore any remedy therein is indecipherable. [krak/t]
USA Today: GOP senator warns of violence after immigration order
Tom Coburn. [rdbrewer]


Daniel Payne: When Liberals Use ‘Science’ To Attack Conservatives, They Demean Science
"Science is increasingly just a catch-all word for liberals, a concept that serves as a stand-in for actual debate, with the predictable result that they end up looking like complete fools." "Science" has become part of their religion. [rdbrewer]


Gabe: No, Reagan Did Not Offer An Amnesty By Lawless Executive Order
"Progressive columnists have settled on an old favorite tactic: justify Democratic misbehavior by claiming (falsely, as you will see) that a Republican did it first." Related: Obama’s Pending Immigration Executive Orders Will Betray Progressives. [rdbrewer]


Trey Gowdy: Gruber an ‘Insomniac with Tourette’s Syndrome’ [rdbrewer]
The Constitution is Dead. Long Live the King! Jeff Sessions tells it like it is. [krak/t]


Joseph Curl: Obama sets off on scorched-earth rampage
"President Obama, fresh off a shellacking in the 2014 midterm elections — in which he made himself a centerpiece, much to the chagrin of embattled Democrats — is about to embark on a scorched-earth rampage that will change the face of America forever." [rdbrewer]
