From Fixer to Fall Guy: Does the Blagojevich Investigation Threaten Israel?
The Policy Project ^ | 14 December 2008 | Patrick Gibson

It's looking more and more like Rahm Emmanuel may be the next shoe to drop in the ongoing Blagojevich investigation. The Chief of Staff of the "most transparent administration in American history" is holed up somewhere in Chicago and we still have more than a month before the inauguration. It's an inauspicious start, to say the least... (video)

Howard Dean’s empty hand | December 14, 2008 | Salena Zito
Posted on 12/14/2008 5:01:45 AM PST by Kaslin

[snip] Franklin and Marshall College political scientist Terry Madonna... argues against rewarding Dean for doing the right thing. “Do we give him credit for upholding his own party’s rules — he gets a reward for doing what’s right? This is not a profile-in-courage here.” Yet Villanova’s Brown is unsure, based on all Dean has done, why he does not appear to be moving into the administration. Republican strategist Kent Gates theorizes that this reflects “a total Rahm (Emanuel) block.” The clash between the two party chairs during the 2006 midterm election is legendary: Emanuel ran the party’s congressional arm back then and divided bitterly with Dean over cash. With Emanuel now Obama’s right-hand man, it makes sense that Dean’s name is not being circulated. [end]

It's not, but if feels good to say it! LOL

There used to be a need for a second campus due to the amount of kids. When the numbers of kids declined, they let go of the "west" campus and combined the schools again.

Why is Israel a part of the equation?

The war on terror is still paramount in my view. We can survive corruption, but not Islamic hegemony.

We are highly unlikely to succumb to ‘Islamic Hegemony’, whatever that means. Corruption is what is blowing up our Republic RIGHT NOW!
