  • Spain downgraded by S&P (heading towards "junk" status)

    CNNMoney ^ | 10/10/2012 | Ben Rooney
    Standard & Poor's lowered its credit rating for Spain on Wednesday, in a move that could complicate Madrid's effort to avoid requesting a financial bailout. S&P cut Spain's long-term credit rating two notches to "BBB-" from "BBB+," the ratings agency said in a statement. It also lowered the nation's short-term rating and said the long-term outlook for Spain is negative, meaning it could lower the rate further. The move reflects the risk of "increasing social discontent" as the Spanish economy slips deeper into recession, according to S&P. It also warned of "rising tensions" between the central government and Spain's semi-autonomous...

    The State Department's former point man on security in Libya told a congressional hearing Wednesday that his superiors worked against him as he tried to get more help for the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi in the months before it was overrun in a deadly terror attack. Eric Nordstrom, the one-time regional security officer, told the House Oversight Committee that he had a disheartening conversation with the regional director of the agency's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs when he requested additional manpower for the facility. "I said, 'Jim, you know what makes it most frustrating about this assignment? It's not...

    The Obama administration’s Benghazi response continued to unravel at the House Oversight Committee hearing today, as State Department officials struggled unsuccessfully to get their stories straight. Ambassador Patrick Kennedy defended UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s claim on September 16 that the attack was part of a spontaneous protest that erupted over an anti-Islam video, saying that anyone at the State Department would have said the same thing as Rice based on the intelligence available at the time. “If any administration official, including any career official, were on television on Sunday, September 16, they would have said what Ambassador Rice said.

    The Olivet Discourse is the theological term used to describe the passages in Scripture in which Jesus outlined the signs of His coming and the end of world government. All three Synoptic Gospels, (Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21) offer the same outline, differing only in the amount of detail offered by each Gospel writer. It is important to understand both the context and the perspective in which it was offered in order to understand how it applies in the real world. First, we must understand to whom it is primarily addressed: "And as He sat upon the mount...

    While Obama’s connection to his Muslim family in Kenya is an acceptable topic for discussion in the Arab world, it is viewed as a ‘great taboo’ in the United States. Why is that so? This ‘taboo’ should be considered unfair at best, purely prejudiced at worst. Is it fair that we censor such discussions just because Obama’s relatives are ‘Muslim’? The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) should condemn the media for keeping a tight lid on the subject. Isn’t it time to go beyond what is disclosed by President Obama in his Dreams from My Father or Wikipedia’s limited...

    Lance Armstrong challenged the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to name names and say what it had on him. On Wednesday, it did. The anti-doping body revealed a group of 11 former Armstrong teammates — some loyal, some estranged — who each provided evidence of drug use on the U.S. Postal Service team. USADA Chief Executive Travis Tygart called it “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.” USADA will deliver its reasoned decision against Armstrong later Wednesday, a summary of the facts it used to hand him a lifetime suspension and erase his titles.

Pfc. James Jacques (HAW'-kas) was laid to rest with full military honors at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on what would have been his 56th birthday. About 50 Vietnam War veterans holding American flags lined a street in the sprawling hilltop cemetery. Doves were released after three volleys were fired into the air.

Then along came that wretched debate and Romney lied and now he’s ahead in the polls by a full percentage point. Today’s Real Clear Politics average has Romney at 48.2%, the president at 47.2%.

    Mitt Romney now holds a narrow advantage over Barack Obama in the race for the White House -- 46 percent to 45 percent, if the election were held today, according to a Fox News national poll of likely voters released Wednesday. That’s a six-point turnaround and a three-point “debate bounce” for Romney. Before the first presidential debate in Denver last Wednesday, Romney had 43 percent to Obama’s 48 percent (September 24-26, 2012). Romney’s edge comes mainly from independents, white voters and men. Just over half of men (51 percent) back Romney now, the highest level of support he’s received among...

The folks at the Associated Press on Wednesday came up with an unbelievable answer to that in an article unbelievably titled "Experts: Global Warming Means More Antarctic ice": While the North Pole has been losing sea ice over the years, the water nearest the South Pole has been gaining it. Antarctic sea ice hit a record 7.51 million square miles in September. That happened just days after reports of...

Rannah Gray, Holden’s spokesperson, challenged the article on our Facebook by saying something rather interesting… “…the story posted about Mayor Holden “welcoming Louis Farrakhan” is completely false. He did not attend the event and was not even on the Southern Campus that day. We are requesting that the story be taken down.” Of course, if you parse the Monroe Free Press and Gray’s statement together you’ll notice that the Free Press didn’t...
  • Rand Paul: Romney's wrong on Middle East, defense spending

    This week, I will campaign for Gov. Mitt Romney. I believe this election will and should be about moving America back from the edge of the abyss on which we stand, where our debt and spending threaten to overwhelm and drown us. Romney's belief in free markets, limited government and trade make him the clear choice to lead our country come January. I do not, however, support a call for intervention in Syria. And, if such intervention were being contemplated, it is absolutely necessary that Congress give any such authority to the president. No president, Republican or Democrat, has the...
  • House Democrats Preparing for a Post-Pelosi World (Wasserman Schultz gives her the boot?)

    House Democrats Preparing for a Post-Pelosi WorldBy Billy House Updated: October 10, 2012 | 1:13 p.m. **SNIP** Wasserman Schultz, 46, got the candidate’s promise of support for at least the vice chairmanship, beating to the punch another member who would later be telephoning, California’s Barbara Lee, 66. Such are the maneuverings of a handful of younger House Democrats scrambling to secure commitments in their bids for a seat at the caucus’s leadership table—or perhaps at its head. **SNIP** But she has become something of a wild card for handicappers now that she is unlikely to be offered the opportunity to...
  • Romney Exposes Obama’s Zero Sum Game on Foreign Policy

    The more Romney talks these days the better he sounds. While it may seem counter intuitive with less than a month to go until election day, Romney has finally found his voice in this presidential campaign and a backbone to support it. After notching a “heavy weight” win against President Obama in last week’s Denver debate, Romney laid down another game changer in his foreign policy speech Monday at the Virginia Military Institute. Osama bin Laden might be dead but we are not safer was the theme of Romney’s speech. America isn’t shaping history but “leaving our destiny at the...

    I’m beginning to wonder if Mr Romney’s gentle Mormonism won’t let him go in for the kill... ‘Kill’ being the right word... What the Republicans have is a tape made at the time Mr Obama voted repeatedly in the Illinois State Senate to deny rights of basic medical care to any child born alive in a botched abortion. Mr Obama is on tape referring to the victim as ‘a foetus outside the womb.’ [snip]Mr Obama takes the position that, even when a child who is the target of an abortion attempt makes it as far as lying on a table...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made his pro-life views clear today in response to a question from a reporter on the campaign trail in Ohio.Romney said he would govern as a pro-life president, de-fund the nation’s largest abortion company, and reinstate a policy preventing taxpayer funding of international abortion promotion efforts on the part of Planned Parenthood.“I think I’ve said time and again that I’m a pro-life candidate and I’ll be a pro-life president. The actions I’ll take immediately is to remove funding for Planned Parenthood. It will not be part of my budget. And also I’ve indicated that I...
  • Big Dig-Springfield?(MA) I-91 in city needs major rehab that could turn into a reimagining

    10/10/2012 2:18:23 PM PDT · by matt04 · 14 replies
    The elevated section of Interstate 91 downtown needs $360 million to $400 million worth of reconstruction within the next few years, but local, state and federal transportation planners are only now starting to figure out how to pay for the project and what Springfield’s city center might look like when it's done. Options on the table include demolishing the viaduct and making I-91 a surface road or burying the interstate in the style of Boston’s notorious Big Dig. Springfield’s elevated stretch of Interstate 91 has long been blamed for smothering downtown development by cutting the city off from the Connecticut...
