Billionaire Mortimer Zuckerman’s The Atlantic has conducted a poll with the Rockefeller and Ford (CIA) Foundation funded Aspen Institute and Penn, Schoen & Berland, a Bill Clinton connected market research and Democrat propaganda outfit.
Eisenhower warns about the military industrial complex.
Not surprisingly, the poll “finds widespread mistrust of governing elites and an aversion to spreading U.S. norms abroad,” according to Conor Friedersdorf.
“51 percent said America should neither try to spread its values nor [...]
Before Dmitry Medvedev’s valedictory speech earlier this month, the outgoing president awarded medals to dozens of Russians, including a theatre director, a policewoman and the chairman of the Russian hockey federation. Then, taking the podium in a glittering Kremlin ballroom, Mr Medvedev declared that Russia’s younger generation needed positive role models to inspire them towards “success in literature, art, education, and” – he paused wistfully – “nuclear weapons”.
“They may still come [...]
Donna Dewitt, the outgoing president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO, is seen in this video bashing a piñata of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’sface while Dewitt and her colleagues were at a retreat in Columbia, S.C. Saturday afternoon.
“Well I will say, she looks like a tough old girl here,” Dewitt says as she gears up to swing at the piñata.

The Right-winger, who lost his re-election bid to Socialist François Hollande on Sunday, held his last cabinet meeting on Wednesday – said to be an “emotional” affair in which he urged colleagues not to be “sad or bitter”.
Telling aides he intends to retire from front line politics, Mr Sarkozy let them know he was preparing to return to his former life as a lawyer at the Paris firm he still partly owns, after taking [...]
4/27/2012 — Russia’s defence exports rose steadily from 2006 to 2011, helping to maintain its position as one of the world’s leading arms suppliers, but increased competition from Western suppliers in Asia combined with continuing structural challenges means that Russia’s ability to maintain its strong record is anything but certain.
Both outgoing president Dmitry Medvedev and president-elect Vladimir Putin have committed to boosting defence spending until 2020. Medvedev outlined procurement plans [...]
Ener1 had joined Solyndra, Beacon Power, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt and AES — all recipients of taxpayer dollars — in bankruptcy.
Now that technology is owned by a Russian tycoon.
“In a company whose ownership is connected to Medvedev, you have a golden opportunity for a military technology transfer and, perhaps, civil transfer from the U.S. to Russia at no cost,” said Stephen Blank, an expert on Russia and a research professor of [...]
Addressing a rally outside the Kremlin, Mr Putin had tears rolling down his cheeks as he claimed he had won an “open and honest battle” and secured “clear victory” over his four rivals.

This appears to at least partly explain why on Monday Russia announced that it had successfully tested a short-range interceptor missile; [...]
If there’s one thing certain about real estate mogul Donald Trump, it’s that he likes to win… even though he endorsed John McCain for president.
“McCain, really, that was almost an impossible situation,” said Trump. Bush has been so bad, maybe the worst president in the history of this country. He has been so incompetent, so bad, so evil that I don’t think any Republican could [...]
