We're looking for truthers, terrorists and conspiracies everywhere. Our paranoia says more about us than reality

October 7, 2001: less than a month after 9/11. Police in Maryland decide that two trucks on Interstate 270 might be carrying explosives. The alert cops block traffic for an hour, searching the vehicles for tools of terror. The cargo turns out to be stage equipment headed to a memorial service for the firefighters killed in the attack. A forgivable mistake, given the circumstances? Perhaps. In Tyler, Texas, a few days earlier, federal agents, city police, and bomb experts from far-flung cities had descended on a family's mailbox to grapple with a gadget jerryrigged from wires, batteries, and green duct tape. The streets were blocked; the neighbors were evacuated. The device turned out to be an eight-year-old's homemade flashlight, built as a school project and left in the mailbox for safekeeping.

This weekend, a video produced by Free Market America went live on YouTube - and it is racking up nationwide hits. Deservedly so.

The Earth Day-timed message is compelling and extremely relevant this campaign season. As the group writes: "The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism - it's become an economic suicide pact. And we're here to challenge it."

Well, well, well ... what a coinky-dink.

The man who got picked to review more than $23 billion in Department of Energy loans and gave them a clean bill of health - without reviewing loans to already-defunct Solyndra and Beacon Power - waited a whole two weeks to start donating to Barack Obama's re-election effort...

Yesterday, David Brooks scolded Republicans for not listening to "intellectual authorities" on fiscal policy.

Fair enough; I figured I'd devote some time today to the opinion of intellectual authorities on economics and public policy, and decided to focus on Harvard and Stanford for my research. Fortunately, economics professors at both top-notch bastions of intellectual authority have quite a lot to say about Obamanomics. Let's start with Harvard's Robert Barro, quoted in the London Telegraph as saying that government stimulus wastes money, has negative rather than positive multipliers for national economies, and only should be undertaken for specific purposes under narrow conditions...

Schmeiser never denied his crops contained the patented gene, Roundup Ready canola, but said they were naturally or accidentally cross-pollinated from neighboring farms that purchased the Monsanto gene.

Monsanto subsequently sued Schmeiser, saying at a June trial that cross-pollination could not justify the modified canola gene's being found in nearly 90 percent of his crops.

Auburn, Washington resident Dustin Theoharis was asleep in his bed on February 11, 2012 when two armed strangers entered his room and started to give him orders. Understandably startled, Theoharis reached for a flashlight.

This prompted the two intruders to open fire. Theoharis - who was still in bed -- was shot sixteen times, but survived. The assailants who shot Theoharis were Detective Aaron Thompson of the King County Sheriff's Office and Corrections Officer Kris Rongen. They had arrested Theoharis's roommate, Nicholas Harrison, an ex-convict who had failed to report for community supervision. The officers were searching his bedroom to find if Theoharis had a gun, which would have allowed them to charge Harrison with a parole violation. They had no warrant or probable cause, and no gun was found. Since Harrison was already in custody at the time of the incident, there was no need to conduct a "safety sweep" of the residence.

In case you don't know what Cavuto's referencing, here's what happens to a left-wing cable network when news is slow...

Per Cavuto, turns out that horse-riding can in fact be therapeutic for people with MS. But never mind that. Why would O'Donnell even think to challenge Romney's wife on that? Even if she was the only MS sufferer in the world who finds strength in dressage, what reason is there to doubt her? Does he think she'd lie about her illness as some sort of cover story to justify a hobby that's a little too snooty even for the expensive tastes of a millionaire like Scary Larry?

From a story in today's Wash Post titled, "Libertarians Flex Their Muscle in the GOP"...

Libertarianism once again appears to be on the rise, particularly among the young. But its alliance with the Republican establishment is fraying, as demonstrated by the increasingly personal war of words between two leading potential 2016 presidential contenders.... The "once again" is appreciated, though any honest appraisal of partisan politics would acknowledge that libertarianism has been the next big thing for going on 45 years, when the future editor of Wired magazine, Louis Rossetto and his college pal Stan Lehr published "The New Right Credo: Libertarianism" in the January 10, 1971 issue of The New York Times Magazine.

Let's see if you can figure out why this might not be the kind of news that advocates of the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis might have wanted.
