    Appearing on CNN Friday morning, comedian Pauly Shore told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that he believes the Republican Party lost the 2012 presidential election because it has gone “too far to the white,” echoing a theme that many Republican pundits have voiced as well in recent days. “If you look at the Mitt Romney audience, they’re all white people,” he said. Shore’s visit was prompted by the launch of his new nation-wide comedy tour promoting $5 downloadable show he created called “Pauly~tics,” in which he interviews and attempts to humanize national political figures. “When you went around for your special to...

    Once upon a time, a group of people had an idea for a country. They were far from a monolithic group of people. Each one had his own reasons for wanting to design and live in a new country of their own making. Some of them were merchants who found that the country to which they belonged was taxing them so highly that they could not make ends meet. Some of them were philosophical idealists who were uncomfortable with the abstract notion of hereditary rule. Some of them were passionate believers whose religion of choice or birth had been declared...

    WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Corning is cutting up to 4% of its salaried workforce worldwide and the plant in Wilmington is currently considering how much impact it will have here locally. WECT.com reached out to the company's corporate communications after getting a call that layoffs were mentioned Friday at the plant in Wilmington. A spokesperson said a plan to reduce costs and restructuring will continue into 2013. Those actions include a layoff of about 500 salaried people companywide and adjusting the hourly workforce. The company would only say that Wilmington leaders are "evaluating the situation to determine the level of...

    House Speaker John Boehner said on Thursday that Obamacare was “the law of the land” – apparently conceding that GOP efforts to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare law have ended. Boehner, the nation’s top elected Republican, hinted in an interview with ABC News that Congress would not undertake efforts to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. “The election changes that,” Boehner responded to a question about whether Congress would undertake repeal efforts next year. “It's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. Obamacare is the law of the land. Alert: Do you support Obamacare? Tell us what you...

    America has added 5 million jobs since February 2010, when employment hit its Great Recession low. But the nation still needs to add another 9 million jobs just to get back to pre-recession unemployment levels, according to data crunched by the Economic Policy Institute. While that is a pretty big number, the jobs gap is starting to shrink as the economy picks up steam. A year ago, the deficit was 10.3 million jobs. And in September 2010, it was 11.3 million. "We've reduced the gap, but it's still massive," said Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute....

    The CEO-in-waiting of the defense contractor who declined to issue WARN Act layoff notices on the urging of the Obama administration — sequestration-related notices mandated by law that would have gone out just before the election — has resigned, citing an affair.

    Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini said his company is preparing for a potential "fiscal cliff" by entering contingency mode and considering either a hiring freeze or laying off some employees. If the country does go off the so-called fiscal cliff, which refers to a perfect storm of upcoming tax increases and spending cuts, Bertolini predicted unemployment and healthcare cost trends each will increase one percentage point, CNBC reported. "It's a bit like, you know, the 15th century castle gates closing during The Plague, if you think about it," Bertolini said on CNBC's Squawk Box, according to the Hartford Courant. "We're going...

    The town did some slicing and dicing last week, reducing the tax levy increase by half to 4.4 percent on an $11.2 million budget proposal, and offering more possible cuts that would get it under the two percent tax cap. Supervisor Kelly Myers put $394,000 in cuts on the table last week. Of those cuts, the board would need to select $225,000 to get the tax increase under two percent. Implementing all the cuts would bring the tax levy increase to around zero percent. The biggest cut on the table is closing the town’s transfer station, which has been losing...

    WASHINGTON – New Pentagon details show that the first U.S. military unit arrived in Libya more than 14 hours after the attack on the consulate in Benghazi was over and four Americans, including the ambassador, were dead. A Defense Department timeline obtained by The Associated Press underscores how far the military response lagged behind the Sept. 11 attack, due largely to the long distances the commando teams had to travel to get to Libya. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his top military adviser were notified of the attack about 50 minutes after it began and were about to head into...

    The race for Florida’s 18th Congressional district has taken an ugly turn, with charges of incompetence, illegal activity and possible fraud on the part of local election officials. Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy has declared victory with an apparent 160,328 votes to West's 157,872. However, serious questions arose immediately about the integrity of the vote count, especially in St. Lucie County. On election night incumbent Republican Allen West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots, resulting in 4,400 vote shift -snip- A physical barrier had...

This is the same John Kerry who wanted to be Secretary of State. It would seem this criticism of Obama would not endear him to that position. Kerry now seems to not want to walk into that burning house right...

    HAZARD — Officials with TECO Coal Corporation on Friday announced the layoffs of around 90 people from several different mines across the region. Perry County Coal, a subsidiary of TECO, will be losing around six employees from support and administrative staff, but no coal miners. Back at the first of the year TECO announced the company would layoff 13 percent of their workforce at Perry County Coal due to the economic downturn in the coal industry. This translated to around 85 people, most of whom were coal miners. Paul Matney, personnel director for TECO, said that while around two-thirds of...

    One of these is unlike the others: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, niceness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. According to Paul’s letter to the church at Galatia, all but one of these is what he refers to as the fruit of the Spirit, which is to say, visible evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian. If you are a Christian, your life will necessarily be marked by this kind of character. But which one is foreign to the list? Niceness. Humans seem to be naturally drawn to niceness.

    US Goes Left, NC Goes Rightby John Hammer Editor November 08, 2012 North Carolina and Guilford County took a sharp right turn while the nation continued on a leftward course on Tuesday, Nov. 6, with the reelection of President Barack Hussein Obama. **SNIP** North Carolina went the other way. The state elected Republican Pat McCrory governor, Republican Dan Forest as lieutenant governor, solid Republican majorities in both the North Carolina state House and state Senate, and preserved the Republican majority on the nominally nonpartisan state Supreme Court. So Republicans will control all three branches of state government.

    The network of the Republican Party and the conservative movement suffered a major embarrassment on election night. For weeks prior to the election, Fox News has been giving valuable air time to pollsters and pundits who predicted a Romney “landslide.” These projections were in stark contrast to reputable poll results that were used in other media outlets; however, Fox News viewers were led to believe that the other polls were “skewed” against Mitt Romney. It turns out Fox News was skewed toward self-promoting “experts” who were universally wrong about their predictions.

    Political losses are interesting to watch. Generally speaking, the left and the right handle them differently. Too often, the tendency of the right is to talk about how certain groups are holding the rest down. Primarily the debate is between those who favor social conservatism and those who favor economic conservatism. Each group insists that its approach is the correct one to get back to a ruling majority vote. There certainly are quite a few larger problems facing the conservative movement. Right now, particularly among Hispanic, black, and Asian voters, the conservative side has a number of trends that do...

    Did Winning The Elections of 2010 Cost The Republicans In 2012? The most immediate impact of the Republican victory in 2010 was that Obama was forced to agree to an extension of the Bush tax cuts for two more years. His own Marxist impulses were also kept in check by the Republican House. The net impact of this is that it allowed the economy to grow, albeit at a tepid pace... but just enough to make people think that things were getting slightly better. If Pelosi had been left in power after 2010 to act as Obama's rubber stamp on...

    Since Romney lost on Tuesday, many Republicans, like Sean Hannity and John Boehner, have been promoting a change in the Republican views on immigration policy to attract more hispanic/latino voters.  Unfortunately, I think this is a trap that will make Republican electoral prospects worse, not better. Just do the math, there are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in this country.  Let's say you do what Sean Hannity proposes and give those already here a "path to citizenship".  Now, assume they don't magically become Republicans when they gain their citizenship and 71% vote Democratic like in the last election.

    President Obama’s first-term Supreme Court appointments make it seem unlikely to conservatives that the president will nominate judges over the next four years known for their judicial restraint. In fact, for progressives, judicial restraint takes on an entirely different description. At least, that’s the impression given by Ian Millhiser at a recent Center for American Progress event, in which he said that the “frivolous” lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, convinced him against judicial activism. “And one thing I will say that that taught me is that judicial restraint is really important and that I think...

    With Proposal 4 soundly defeated, the forced unionization of Michigan's home-based caregivers seems finally to be on its last legs. The Service Employees International Union backed the constitutional amendment plan that would have locked the unionization scheme into the constitution and preserved the $6 million a year it takes from the Medicaid checks of the elderly and disabled in Michigan. But the SEIU's scheme should now end in February when the current union contract expires. Proposal 4 lost by a wide margin. Gov. Rick Snyder earlier this year signed a law that home-based caregivers are not state employees and therefore...

    A New York strip club can’t claim a tax exemption on entrance and performance fees on the grounds that it presents “musical arts performances,” the state’s highest court ruled. The New York Court of Appeals in Albany upheld Tuesday a lower court’s ruling that Nite Moves, an adult “juice bar” in Latham, N.Y., didn’t prove to tax authorities that its stage and couch dances merited the exemption granted to artistic performances. “It is not irrational for the tax tribunal to decline to extend a tax exemption to every act that declares itself a ‘dance performance,’” the Court of Appeals said...

The president, speaking in the White House East Room, said he wasn’t wedded to every detail of the plans he outlined during the election, adding, “I’m open to compromise.” But he offered no indication that he was willing to back down.

White House go-betweens with the office of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warn that Iran’s campaign for the June 14 presidential election gets going in March.

    SCARY THOUGHT: Did “Project Orca” Cost Romney the Election by Diverting Resources to Failing Computer Program? One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that when Republicans lose an election, the knives come out and they eat their own. We’ll be seeing this for the next few years — much like we did after the McCain campaign — with Cocktail Party GOP operatives lashing out at various members of the Romney staff, blaming them for the loss in order to elevate themselves and get exposure for their own careers on tee-vee. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s campaign manager, is a...

    Senior intelligence, State Department and FBI officials can expect to be grilled next week as congressional hearings resume on the terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya that killed four Americans. Lawmakers want answers to many outstanding questions surrounding the September 11 armed assault on the diplomatic facility and a CIA annex in Benghazi. Specifically, they want to know who was responsible, whether it was planned, the intelligence reporting on the threat to Libya prior the attack, and whether security was adequate. The Senate Intelligence Committee will conduct a closed-door hearing on November 15. Scheduled witnesses include Director...

    a former oil executive who was made a bishop just over a year ago, will be the next leader of the Church of England, Downing Street confirmed on Friday morning. A press conference at Lambeth Palace took place to announce that the 56-year-old bishop of Durham will be the 105th man to sit on the throne of Saint Augustine, succeeding Rowan Williams. Welby will be enthroned as archbishop of Canterbury in Canterbury Cathedral on 21 March 2013. He said: "To be nominated to this post is both astonishing and exciting. It is something I never expected, and the last few...

    The Supreme Court said Friday that it will consider whether laws designed to protect minority voters are unconstitutional. The announcement comes just days after an election that demonstrated the increasing electoral clout of black and Hispanic voters, who helped propel President Obama to a second term. It's against that backdrop that the court will consider rolling back part of the Voting Rights Act, first passed in 1965, to prevent states from disenfranchising minorities. Specifically, the justices will hear a challenge to the section of the Voting Rights Act that requires certain states with a history of discrimination to get permission...

    Inviting the Latino movement into your political party is like inviting the Jihadists in...its like picking up a live grenade!! If you look inside the Latino movement, you will find a fire-brand of anti-American and anti-white venom. It is their intent to take over this country for themselves. Check out the National Council of La Raza and key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push...

    Aside from retaining the House, this is probably the best news to come out of election day. Entitlement reform is coming, one way or another. And judging by the exit polls among seniors, it's not nearly as politically radioactive as the left would have you believe: Exit polling in 2008 indicated that John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin won by a margin of 8 percentage points among Florida seniors (53 to 45 percent). Exit polling in 2012 indicates that Romney-Ryan more than doubled that margin — to 17 points (58 to 41 percent). Romney’s other biggest gains in the...
