Lovely. One would think with the eyes of the world on this particular building, that New York would have made sure this was perfectly done. Click through for videos of the mess. Via Gothamist. A broken pipe sent water pouring down a stairwell and into an occupied elevator near the top of the World Trade Center Tuesday afternoon. Multiple videos posted online by office workers at the building showed ringing alarm bells and water running in places where it definitely should not be. Leaks were found on numerous floors, including the 82nd and 85th levels, and numerous elevators were disabled as firefighters worked to rescue people stuck inside of at least one flooded lift.

The argument is the judge doesn’t want to be on the same boat with other people involved with the trials. Last time I checked one could secure a separate area while making sure they can’t be approached or hear other conversations. Or perhaps during the boat there’s a rule prohibiting all talking in general. Instead, the trials come to a halt. Our problems will get only more serious if we allow this sort of nonsense to continue. Via Free Beacon. Military trials for the 9/11 masterminds, including lead terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, have been indefinitely frozen after U.S. military officials overseeing the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base rejected demands by the case’s judge that he be provided a private speed boat...

The Chinese stole a research “glider” from the oceanographic ship. Here, engineers inspect a littoral battlespace sensing glider aboard the USNS Pathfinder in 2010. (Navy photo) Even the Chinese know they better get as much trouble done before America gets a president on January 20th. The theft occurred in international waters in the South China sea. This would never have been done under any other US presidency. They know they can do whatever they want. For now. And keep in mind, we’re now a nation that allows a hostile regime (Iran) to kidnap our sailors without a shot being fired. Of course the Chinese know they can do as they please. Via Washington Examiner. The Chinese Navy stole a U.S....

Can we declare an entire bureaucracy clinically insane? Just a note most of you already considered: waiting for health care when something is wrong with you and every minute may count, is not at all like waiting for a ride at Disneyland. With one, a wait can hasten your death, with the other, not so much. If you want to know what Single Payer looks like, this is it. Via Washington Examiner. Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on Monday compared the length of time veterans wait to receive health care at the VA to the length of time people wait for rides at Disneyland, and said his agency shouldn’t use wait times as a measure of success because Disney doesn’t...

Yeah, we might be doomed.

So it looks like the Fed and Obama agree: walls work. But I’m also particularly fond of another comment by the Secret Service: “And we have now a society that tends to want to jump over the fence and onto the 18 acres…” Gee, maybe because no one has any respect for Obama, the federal government is a joke, the Secret Service can’t seem to do their job? Just saying. NBC Washington: Secret Service: ‘Current fence simply is not adequate for a modern era’ The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an...

Yes, that’s right~~ $2.5 BILLION dollars. No solutions, just lots of excuses. Billions of dollars worth. Via NBC New York. New Yorkers paid $2.5 billion for a splashy new subway station built deep into Manhattan’s bedrock near the edge of the Hudson River, but Mother Nature is putting a dampener on the depot’s inaugural year. Just six months removed from its grand opening, the station on the No. 7 subway line is suffering from water leaks that have discolored ceiling tiles and sent rivulets spilling down upon commuters as they ride escalator banks. During the winter, the drops hardened into long icicles. Meanwhile, a few miles downtown, more vexing water leaks have contributed to delays in the opening of an...
