    NEW YORK (AP) -- He has what most politicians can only dream of: widespread name recognition, a hefty campaign account, and a buzzing media circus that follows his every move. But for former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the question lingers - will it be enough for political redemption? It's been more than a year since Weiner resigned in disgrace after tweeting lewd pictures of himself. Yet his marriage survived the scandal that made him a national joke; his wife, Huma Abedin, was pregnant at the time and gave birth to their first child in December. His political prospects are less certain,...

    Some have opposed the company's support of the traditional family. "Well, guilty as charged," said Cathy when asked about the company's position. "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. "We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized. "We intend to...
  • Harry Reid: If We Win in November, We're Going to Nuke the Filibuster

    He might be bluffing or playing to the MSNBC audience, but don't be so sure.  He's already changed Senate rules on the fly to deny Republicans the opportunity to force uncomfortable votes and exploded Senate precedent on the amendment process within the last few years.  Next up: Legislative filibuster Hiroshima?   In May, Harry Reid apologized for killing off a 2010 filibuster reform bill, admitting that the legislative procedure has been “abused, abused, and abused.” Reid has now gone a step farther: the Senate Majority Leader is now openly promising to pass filibuster reform in the beginning of the next...

    We know what your first strike will be and we promise you a big surprise, said Hassan Nasrallah Wednesday night in Beirut. The most important weapons we fought with in the July war (of 2006) were from Syria, not only in Lebanon but also in the Gaza Strip. They forced more than a million settlers to stay in bunkers and frighten Tel Aviv. Nasrallah added that the Americans are now trying to break of Syria as they did Iraq.

    How can a country that elected Ronald Reagan have Obama tied in the polls with Mitt Romney? The answer is: Its not the same country. Similarly, when two successful, attractive multimillionaire women in California cant beat a geriatric leftist like Jerry Brown or an old prune like Barbara Boxer, thats not the same state that elected Ronald Reagan twice, either. The same process that has already destroyed California is working its way through the entire country. While conservatives have been formulating carefully constructed arguments, liberals have been playing a long-term game to change the demographics of America to get an...

    HIV-AIDS is affecting black gay men in the United States on a scale unseen among any other group in the developed world, said a report issued Wednesday ahead of the International AIDS Conference. So grave is the crisis that in some US cities, one in two black men who have sex with other men are HIV positive, according to the report from the Black AIDS Institute, the only national HIV-AIDS think tank focusing on African Americans. "AIDS in America is a black disease, no matter how you look at it," its president and chief executive Phill Wilson, who is himself...

    The most difficult thing to explain to your average Republican voter is how people like David Dewhurst, Charlie Crist and all the establishment, ladder-climbing, butt-kissing, near permanent political staff flacks who grow up to be lobbyists they put around them literally hate you, me, and conservative fighters like Ted Cruz. And newsflash its not just Washington, but in state capitols throughout America, just like Austin. I have many good friends in Austin and one of them overheard the following conversation yesterday a few blocks down from the Texas State Capitol Building. Trust me, folks, this is just a glimpse...

    Its not just in the USA that a growing number of people are preparing for far-from-equilibrium scenarios resulting from economic or geo-political collapse. Many Europeans have also taken note of the troubling signs all around them. In the following report, RT visits a man who wished to keep his name and location anonymous. Like many Americans, he is preparing for all hell to break loose and has spent the last few years gearing up his home and supplies for the worst. Like most preppers and survivalist, he has modified his lifestyle to become more self reliant and less dependent on...

In stunning examples of hypocrisy, though, Pelosi, Reid, and Wasserman-Schultz all refused to release their tax returns when asked by McClatchy Newspapers. The leader has filed a complete financial disclosure report as...

    Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has renewed calls for Olympic chiefs to ban anti-gay nations from the London Games and enforce the Olympic Charter by offering visiting nations the chance to renounce discrimination. An open letter to Jacques Rogge and Lord Coe published today suggests an ultimatum be put to participating states at the Games of the XXX Olympiad. Mr Tatchell said those which discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people should either renounce such discrimination or be disqualified from the Games. The International Olympic Committee and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games should, he...

    Are you better off than you were four years ago? Ronald Reagan asked Americans voters that in a pivotal 1980 debate with then-President Jimmy Carter. Today, fewer than four voters in ten answer yes to the question. Thirty-seven percent of voters say they are better off than four years ago. Nearly half -- 48 percent -- say they arent. Another 13 percent say their situation is unchanged.

    MADISON Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced today that the Department of Justice will appeal the decision issued yesterday in NAACP v. Walker, et al., Dane County Case No. 11-CV-5492. Yesterday afternoon, the Honorable David T. Flanagan issued his decision invalidating and permanently enjoining Wisconsins Voter ID law. My office will be appealing the Dane County Circuit Courts decision in NAACP v. Walker, et al. Voter identification helps ensure election integrity. It is a measure that protects the right to vote. And similar election integrity reforms have been upheld as constitutional by the United States Supreme Court. I...

    I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in animus drenched comments on PolitiJim within the past week.  Many are trying to pull me – or my readers – into an argument on race and/or on women.  (Let it be noted that PolitiJim’s attraction to racy women has long been over.)Like Debbie Whats-her-name Schultz and the entire MSNBC/MMFA mafia, facts are no longer important.  Like Obama, he will say or do anything to get elected and win a “news cycle.”  He lied about his true relationship with Bill Ayers (who admitted to writing his book), he lied about his relationship with Reverend...

    It was the bell that first called to him. It was a Sunday afternoon in the mid-1920s, and his family was living in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx. When his priest rang the bell during Mass, Gerald Ryan, then about 4, thought the beautiful sound was coming from the monstrance that held the host. At age 7, he was hit by a car, and lost his hearing in one ear. The bell remained in his memory, as if Jesus were calling him in stereo. Now, he is a monsignor, and he has been a priest for 67 years....

The one percentage point difference is within the survey's three point margin of error. Romney leads by eight points among men; the president leads by five points among women. The president's supporters are more likely to strongly back their candidate. Fifty-two percent strongly favor Mr. Obama, while just 29 percent of Romney...

    The Jewish Press ^ | 7/18/'12 | Brandon Marlon
    The recently highlighted crisis of Zionism is in fact a quandary afflicting Jewry and no new phenomenon. Rather, it has two sources, each centuries old. One source is the exile and dispersion of a majority of the Jewish people from their native land of Israel by Emperor Hadrian in the year 135 CE, and the deep-seated and long-lasting consequences on the Jewish psyche over the course of the ensuing 1,813 years; the other source is about 200 years old, a gradual religious erosion which begins with the radical Reform movement of Samuel Holdheim in Germany and David Einhorn in the...

    BEIRUT/AMMAN (Reuters) - A bomber killed three of Bashar al-Assad's top military officials on Wednesday - including his powerful brother-in-law - in a devastating blow to the Syrian leader's inner circle as rebels closed in, vowing to "liberate" the capital. Assad's brother-in-law, Assef Shawkat, was one of the principal figures in the tight, clan-based ruling elite that has been battling to put down a 16-month rebellion against four decades of rule by Assad and his father. The defense minister and a senior general were also killed and two other top security officials wounded in the attack on a crisis meeting...
