Ian Hunter: Mick Ralphs talks Mott The Hoople, Bowie and blouses

I'd sung Ready For Love in Mott already because Ian [Hunter], bless him, said, 'I love those songs but they don't suit my voice,' which I completely understand.


"With the Mott thing, it took four years from 2009 to 2013 to get them to do it again. Me and Ian wanted to do more, but at the time the other guys weren't sure. So whether we do anything after this I've no idea. I've never had a plan - it was just to try and get with the people you like to play with, and try to do the best you can. So I've really no idea what's going to happen next year, whether there's going to be more Mott or more Bad Company. But I'm sure my blues band will still be filling in the gaps!"

Judge Rules Violating 4th Amendment Legal

NEW YORK — Citing the Sept. 11 attacks, a federal judge on Friday found that the National Security Agency's bulk collection of millions of Americans' telephone records is legal, a valuable part of the nation's arsenal to counter the threat of terrorism and "only works because it collects everything."

Anne-Marie Waters | Islam Is Not A Peaceful Religion | Oxford Union

Oxford Union Website @ http://www.oxford-union.org/

Anne-Marie Waters, council member of the National Secular Society, begins the case for the opposition by denying that she and her fellow opposition speakers cause fear of Islam and blames instead "the actions of Islam itself".

She lists "9/11, 7/7, Mali, Somalia, gender discrimination, forced marriages, polygamy, amputation", and many more. To the opposition's claim that these acts belong to an "extreme fringe" which has misunderstood the words of the Qur'an, she described the executions for blasphemy and apostasy in Saudi Arabia, and asks "has there ever been a more spectacular misunderstanding?"

Waters concludes by arguing that it is the moderate Muslims who must "dance around meanings" and "stretch interpretations" when confronted with the fundamentally violent ideology of the Qur'an.

For those who believe in human rights and liberty, the sight of our president bounding up some stairs to energetically shake hands with Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, was more than a little unsettling -- regardless of the circumstance. But that's what President Obama seemed to go out of his way to do at Nelson Mandela's memorial service Tuesday. Although Castro has imprisoned American Alan Gross for four years now, CNN alternately applauded and made excuses for the handshake.

Public says America's world leadership has tumbled to 40-year low

For the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business, a stunning rejection of Obama’s foreign policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize.

A new Pew Research Center poll found that 53 percent of people believe that the U.S. is playing a less important role as a world leader than a decade ago, the highest figure since 1984.

Worse: 70 percent said that the U.S. is respected less than in the past, almost matching the high reached under former President George W. Bush, whose foreign policy Obama pledged to reverse.

IRRC Votes in Favor of Chapter 4 Revisions Despite Outcry from Public

The PA Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) voted 3-2 in favor of the Chapter 4 regulations (adopting Pennsylvania Core Standards aka Common Core) despite public outcry, letters from legislators and comments from school administrators, teachers and staff.

The three yes votes were:
Silvan B. Lutkewitte, III, (R) Chairman
John F. Mizner, Esq. (R)
Lawrence J. Tabas, Esq. (R)

The two no votes were:
George D. Bedwick, Vice Chairman, (D)
Dennis A. Watson, Esq., (D)

You can read the final approval at: IRRC Final Approval.

It is more important than ever for you to continue this battle.  We need to focus our efforts on the following tasks:

1.         Local
Every supporter of local control needs to engage his/her school board and lobby them to write and pass a resolution rescinding Common Core.  You can find an example of a resolution that was recently approved by the Coatesville School Board here on the Stop Common Core in Pa Website:  Coatsville SD Resolution.

2.         Education
Every opponent of Common Core should continue to educate other citizens on what is happening through coffee klatches, school board meetings, soccer games and kitchen tables.

3.         Curriculum
We need to stay attentive to and stay on top of the curriculum and lesson plans in our area schools.  We need to red flag any lesson plan that is questionable.  Most importantly, we need to make sure our children gets the extra support particularly in the math so this will have a minimal effect on them.  You can report any questionable curriculum and lesson plans to the following Facebook page:  Inappropriate Common Core Lessons.  This page is also a great resource in helping you discover where some inappropriate lessons already exist.  We encourage you to become members of this page.

4.       Legislators
We will be distributing a list of the legislators who opposed Common Core and Chapter 4 regulations and actively fought alongside of us.  There will also be a list of legislators who actively supported it despite hundreds, even thousands of pleas to oppose it.  They ignored you, the voter. Finally, there are the legislators who did nothing.  They did nothing despite your constant tireless pleas to help oppose this monster.  All of these legislators will be up for election, including Governor Corbett who had and still has the power to stop Common Core now.

Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsbury’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London. They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawy’s ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi. The movement played a key role in the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi in June this year.

Ian Hunter on Cool Cleveland

After completing the last night of his most recent US tour, Ian Hunter hung out in the green room at The Kent Stage with Cool Cleveland's Thomas Mulready and some of his Cleveland area friends, including Weird & Gilly.

Ian talks frankly about life on the road, the upcoming Mott The Hoople British gigs (including the massive O2 Arena on 11/18), his old friend Buffin, and whether he's writing new material for an up-and-coming Mott The Hoople record, or if it would be more appropriate to record with The Rant Band, his touring outfit featuring bandleaders James Mastro on guitar and Steve Holly on drums, with Andy Burton on keys, Paul Page on bass and Mark Bosch on lead guitar.
The song referred to in the interview is by Nicol Williamson, 'Season Song', and the album wasn't actually released until 1971.

Obamacare Song

Reason’s Remy Munasifi has once again fused comedy, music and politics into a catchy tune that will probably have you laughing and nodding in agreement.

Mocking the White House’s Obamacare video contest, which offered up $30,000 in prizes, Munasifi wrote his own “Obamacare Video Contest Song.”


OBAMA DESTROYING DOLLAR, CHINA to TAKE U.S. LAND for DEBT: Ann Barnhardt


Discussed in this interview:
*Government Shutdown, all "Theater" - (1:45)
*Obamacare to be Defunded? - (14:10)
*Difference Between the Republican and Democrat Parties? - (22:05)
*Events that might Trigger War or Financial Collapse - (33:12)
*Debt Ceiling Raised Till Debt Implodes; China to Take U.S. Land for Debt? - (36:00)

Ann Barnhardt, a convert to traditional Roman Catholicism, originally from the Kansas City area, graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in animal husbandry and agricultural economics and worked for 15 years as a commercial hedge broker, helping farmers and ranchers use the futures and options markets to forward contract and hedge their livestock and grain production, with the final six of those years being at the helm of her own Independent Introducing brokerage, Barnhardt Capital Management. After the MF Global theft she voluntarily shuttered Barnhardt Capital Management knowing that her clients' funds were in a state of clear and present danger of theft on the clearinghouse level with no protection, defense or legal recourse. She publicly declared a federal tax strike shortly thereafter and is now operating as a voice of counter-revolution off the so-called "grid". Ann considers the United States to be formally overthrown and thus legally non-existent, instead replaced by a neo-Stalinist tyranny. Find Ann Barnhardt online: http://Barnhardt.biz

Parent Assaulted and Arrested After Speaking Out Against Common Core at Public Meeting

The Baltimore County State’s Attorney is reportedly dropping all charges against Robert Small, the Maryland parent who was arrested after speaking out against Common Core at a public meeting last week.

Small was forcibly removed from the public forum in Towson, Md., and charged with second degree assault of a police officer and disturbing a school operation. If convicted, he faced more than 10 years in jail.

The price of speaking up.

Gun Debate, 2nd Amendment

Piers Morgan is getting sick and tired of having the same "ridiculous debate" every time there is a mass shooting, and made that abundantly clear when he unloaded on conservative radio host Ben Ferguson and gun rights activist John Lott during a heated argument over gun control Monday night. Ferguson told Morgan the Navy Yard was a gun-free zone, so gun control was "a failure in this base with all the best security in the world." Morgan complained that the bigger failure is the "failure to do anything" in the wake of countless tragic shootings. After Richard Feldman brought up the lack of a real conversation on mental health, Morgan cried, "You guys just never accept that the gun itself can never be part of the problem!"

First Human-to-Human Brain Interface: Researcher Controls Colleague's Motions

University of Washington researchers have performed what they believe is the first noninvasive human-to-human brain interface, with researcher Rajesh Rao able to send a brain signal via the Internet to control the hand motions of fellow researcher Andrea Stocco. Rao wore a cap with electrodes hooked up to an electroencephalography machine, which reads electrical activity in the brain. On the other side of the university campus, Stocco wore a magnetic stimulation coil over his left motor cortex, which controls hand movement. Rao looked at a computer screen and played a simple video game with his mind; when he was supposed to fire at a target, he imagined moving his right hand to hit the "fire" button. Almost instantaneously, Stocco's right index finger moved involuntarily to hit the “fire” button.
