In a shocking act of mass public deception, Fox News attempted to skew Ron Paul’s 2011 CPAC straw poll win by representing it with footage from the previous year’s CPAC event, at which Mitt Romney supporters had loudly booed the result, another example of the continuing dirty tricks campaign being waged against Paul by the establishment media.
Congressman Paul replicated his 2010 victory over Mitt Romney by defeating the former Governor of Massachusetts for a second consecutive year at the annual CPAC conference.
However, before anchor Bill Hemmer introduced a segment concerning the story, Fox News played a clip of the 2010 announcement of the poll results, during which Mitt Romney supporters had loudly booed Ron Paul’s victory, passing off last year’s footage as representative of this year’s event.
Hemmer then proceeded to state, “In the end he was the winner, probably not the reaction he was hoping for,” describing the reaction as “mixed applause and boos,” before directly asking Ron Paul if he knew who was booing him.
In reality, there were hardly any boos after Ron Paul was announced as the 2011 CPAC winner, the result was met with a massively positive reaction, only Fox News deemed it necessary to hide that fact from their viewers. The video clip above shows the real footage from the 2011 event, proving that Fox News had attempted to deceive Americans into thinking that Paul’s victory was unpopular, by deliberately using the wrong footage.
A separate We Are Change Oklahoma clip of the 2011 straw poll victory confirms that Paul’s win was met overwhelmingly by a loud chorus of cheers and applause.

An American envoy’s praise for Mubarak has raised the question once more of what Washington really thinks Frank Wisner ‘s apparent love song to Hosni Mubarak has left confusion behind him. Speaking on a video link-up from New York to the Munich Security Conference , Barack Obama’s special envoy to Egypt veered wildly off-message in seemingly fond remarks about the Egyptian autocrat. Wisner, who had just returned from Cairo, started by making a constitutional argument for Mubarak to stay. If the presidency is vacated, Wisner said, the speaker of the parliament would fill the post, and elections would have to be held within two months. Those elections would have to be fought under the existing rules, which are unacceptable to the opposition. The argument ignored the allowance under the constitution for the president to delegate powers, which he has done in the past while undergoing medical treatment. But at least the argument sounding dispassionate. What followed didn’t. The president must stay in office to steer those changes through. I therefore believe that President Mubarak’s continued leadership is critical; it’s his opportunity to write his own legacy. He has given 60 years of his life to the service of his country and this is an ideal moment for him to show the way forward Wisner’s words bewildered the western officials gathered in Munich, raising a number of questions.An American envoy’s praise for Mubarak has raised the question once more of what... more

No one wants the Muslim Brotherhood to take over, no one wants violence â just elections and a new constitution This is a sweet, sweet revolution; it is peaceful. Tell everyone we are peaceful. We do not owe this revolution to the Muslim Brotherhood, not to anybody. They say the Ikhwan is more organised â maybe. But this is the people on the street; this is not about any political party. Look, he says, more and more people are coming; Tahrir Square is getting more and more full. I am sorry, the man tells me, but I hate your president. What is this speech he gives? Why can't he support us? He says we can have human rights but he gives us no political rights? To America, we are monkeys, monkeys, monkeys. We Egyptians don't deserve a constitution, don't deserve freedom, don't deserve democracy. We are in the streets every day since 25 January and you give us Omar Suleiman , an agent? We are out here demanding our rights and you give us the head of intelligence? We will not accept Suleiman. America puts the security of Israel above the people of Egypt. We are monkeys to America. They are saying we Egyptians don't deserve political rights, don't deserve freedom. It's overâ¦ the fact that the outside world continues to engage this guy Mubarak is ridiculous. It's over. This has nothing to do with any political party. It is truly a popular movement. There is concern about what is going to happen next. We need to continue to experience this with joy. We have to remain peaceful until we get our demands. Look, there are more and more people walking into Tahrir Square. We want new elections to set up a committee to write a new constitution. We want clean elections; once we have a new constitution, we can elect a new government. We are not less than South Africa.

RYAN CHILCOTE, BLOOMBERG TELEVISION: Mr. President, thank you very much for joining us. You want to turn Russia into a modern country. You've got McDonalds. You've got shopping malls. You've got sushi. What's missing?
PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: What’s missing? More common things like infrastructure, business infrastructure, and legislation to properly regulate that business activity are missing. The official establishment, the bureaucracy, lack proper legal consciousness. And a well-developed judicial system is missing. Once we have all that, and provided there is no corruption, it would mean that Russia is ready to steam ahead along its modernisation track.

I'm With Stupid should be the new Tea Party slogan.
Don’t you love people who shoot themselves in the foot? I sure do. It makes me very happy and few things make me very happy. Like a Percocet and a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Or watching the snow fall from my bedroom window, which overlooks downtown Manhattan. Red Carpet arrivals always make me happy, too. But in the case of Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, their perfunctory need to yattle off at the mouth–spewing Tea Party nonsense–well, it makes me very happy. Sure, my work is cut out for me, in my zeal and commitment to render them useless. But thankfully, they help me along the way because every time they say something, it is as though they shoot themselves in the foot.
Michele Bachmann’s rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s speech on Tuesday proved how desperate she is to be the key voice of the Republican Party. And Sarah Palin is by no means willing to give up her place in the spotlight for Bachmann, who doesn’t have as good a head of hair. My suggestion is that we do a special episode of MTV’s Celebrity Death Match with these two broads and “May the best woman win”, as per Ru Paul. Oh and ny the way Michele, next time you make a grand weeping statement to the United States, talk into the camera. You looked retarded. And Sarah, figures you would have a comment about Sputnik, since you can see Russia from your backyard. To quote Bugs Bunny, “What a bunch of maroons.”

In his second State of the Union address, President Obama made it clear that energy is one of the most important issues facing the United States today.
Although the president mentioned that he would champion investment in clean energy, like wind and solar power, it’s clear that fossil fuels will still be around for a few years to come.
Education is key when it comes to understanding the need for new technologies and alternative sources of energy. Often, people don’t really realize how much energy is required for each and every one of their daily activities.

With the iPad Dmitry Medvedev was also answering questions on his view on Wikileaks and what he doesn't like the most about it. According to Medvedev, declassified materials on Wikileaks were not shocking to him or for Russia. However, when every morning he reads this and other political websites - "the awakening comes".

A Short Compilation on the Crisis in Tunisia.
Violent anti-government protests drove Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali from power Friday after 23 years of iron-fisted rule, as anger over soaring unemployment and corruption spilled into the streets. (Jan. 14)
The ingredients that fueled the change in Tunisia can be found in many other countries of the Middle East and Africa – high unemployment, deplorable living standards, repressive governments, and a lack of basic freedoms. Add to this mix another element -- a young population, educated, and well-connected through Facebook, Twitter and other social media – and one is left to wonder where the next spark might ignite.A Short Compilation on the Crisis in Tunisia.

Yesterday evening, a hacker seized control of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's Facebook account, and posted a message that many disgruntled Frenchmen have been dying to hear: "Dear compatriots, given the exceptional circumstances our country is experiencing, I have decided in my spirit and conscience not to run for office again at the end of my mandate in 2012." The fake post then extended an invitation to have drinks at a cafe on the Champs-Élysées.
For what it's worth, Sarkozy hasn't officially announced that he'll seek re-election in 2012, but he made clear in a follow-up post that he definitely doesn't "subscribe to the rather hasty conclusions of the message" posted by the hacker. Sarkozy went on to speculate that the prankster may have hacked his account in order "to remind me that no system is infallible" -- and not, of course, to remind him that he totally sucks.

The move hopes to put pressure on Laurent Gbagbo, however there a worries on how the ban could be carried out since president Alassane Ouattara and his cabinet are still blockaded within a hotel.
