    Daily Telegraph (original source) ^ | 20 April 1997 | Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    TO the delight of the White House, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is leaving Washington. Time and again his stories on the Clintons and their abuses of power have been proved correct. He leaves with a warning for Americans. "That's another British invasion we're glad is over," the White House told George magazine. "The guy was nothing but a pain in the ass." [ - SNIP - ] Disappointment was swift, however. I was stunned when the new President - barely installed in the White House - repudiated his campaign promise for a tax cut. It was downhill from there.

  • Prosciutto Nuovo--no "Speck," all "Veggie"

    Canada Free Press ^ | 09/30/16 | Dr. Klaus Kaiser
    Do the terms Prosciutto or Speck have any meaning to you? They should! True prosciutto is one of many Italian delicacies, especially that from Parma region, a kind of air-dried bacon that melts on your tongue. As common for bacon, it has small parts of fat. In the context here, “Speck” is the German term for the fat in cured bacon that makes the delicacy even smoother. You can buy the original prosciutto at high-end deli shops in the U.S., including the west coast (nothing but the finest for them, ever). IMHO, even steadfast vegetarians would savor it. Now, horror...

    Democrats denounced it as an assault on democracy and a sop to billionaires when the Supreme Court issued a ruling two years ago that loosened limits on campaign giving. But Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party leaders are now exploiting the decision, funneling tens of millions of dollars from their wealthiest donors into a handful of presidential swing states. The flow of money, documented in Federal Election Commission reports, shows Democrats expanding their fund-raising advantage in the final phase of the presidential race, defying expectations at the beginning of the campaign that Republicans would dominate the money chase. The shift has...

    Jeb Bush is denying a report that claimed he's voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. Bush says he hasn't made a decision and suggested he may not cast a ballot at all. 'If everybody didn't vote, that would be a pretty powerful political statement, wouldn't it?' he said, according to CNN, after he was asked what would happen if other voters followed his lead. The Republican politician's father George H.W. Bush had his plans to cross party lines at vote for Hillary Clinton revealed by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

    What? Most observers of politics recognize it’s among the cheapest of ploys to compare your political opponents to Hitler. Not only is just about never accurate, but when that’s what you have to resort to, you show yourself completely incapable of defending your own ideas or explaining the problems you have with your opponents’ ideas. Comparing another person to Hitler is simply pathetic, idiotic and wrong.

    Today the Court of the Judiciary (COJ) issued a decision on the charges against Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore. The Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) requested that he be removed from the bench. Under the COJ rules, removal requires a unanimous 9-0 vote by the members of the COJ, which is made up of judges, a lawyer and laypeople. Absent a 9-0 unanimous vote, the COJ cannot remove a judge from the bench. But today, in an unbelievable violation of the law, the COJ suspended without pay Chief Justice Moore for the remainder of his term, which runs through...

    Untrammeled hubris. This week, Newsweek accused a company controlled by Donald Trump of either doing, or attempting to do, business in Fidel Castro’s communist Cuba. The story is still shaking out and, so far, Trump’s campaign has not commented. I won’t sugar coat it. If it’s true, it’s going to be a problem for the Donald. However, the fact that Hillary Clinton has decided to pounce on the story is absolutely laughable. Check out this clip, where she accuses Donald Trump of being a scofflaw who puts his private financial concerns ahead of the nation’s welfare.

She is accused of causing panic by setting the insects and worms free inside a subway car on Wednesday of last week. Pugh’s stunt freaked out a lot of straphangers.

    Attorney General Bill Schuette released an official legal opinion Wednesday that schools operated by the reconstituted Detroit school district may be closed due to poor academic performance. Attorney General spokesperson Andrea Bitely confirmed that the opinion is binding on state agencies. Schuette's opinion rebuffs a contrary legal opinion Gov. Rick Snyder had endorsed. “The law is clear: Michigan parents and their children do not have to be stuck indefinitely in a failing school,” Schuette said in a press release. “Detroit students and parents deserve accountability and high performing schools.

So it wasn’t just something we did one day a year, but it became a regular part of our lives,” she asked in a Florida rally on the topic of national service Friday. The former secretary of state argued that her volunteer plan would help combat growing self-segregation in America, where people surround themselves with people who think, talk, look and read the same news as them....

    By 61% to 27%, Americans who tuned in to Monday night's presidential debate believe Hillary Clinton, rather than Donald Trump, did the better job. Her 34-percentage-point lead is among the more robust victories presidential candidates have earned in Gallup's post-debate polls stretching back to 1960, on par with Bill Clinton's debate wins over Bob Dole in 1996. However, as the record shows, the winner of the first debate does not necessarily win the next debate, or the election. .....John Kerry was the perceived winner of all three debates against George W.

First, as anyone who has consistently read my column knows, I was an ardent supporter of Ted Cruz's and was often critical of Donald Trump, particularly about his debate performances. But Trump won the Republican nomination, and like many others, I have had to regroup and shift my allegiances. I am now going to vote for Trump -- irrespective of my sincere criticisms of him during the primaries -- without hesitation,...

    Defense contractor Textron just unveiled a new rifle at the Modern Day Marine conference. Designed to use so-called "telescoped" ammunition, the new rifle promises a harder-hitting, lighter bullet for America's ground troops to fire. Whether the U.S. military is ready to embrace all the change a new rifle and ammunition would bring remains to be seen. Traditional bullet cartridges have a bullet seated roughly halfway inside a brass shell casing, with gunpowder inside the casing. By contrast, the new rifle uses a 6.5-millimeter polymer-cased telescoped bullet. Telescoped rounds feature a bullet completely encased in a polymer shell, like a shotgun,...

Arguments against the CPP focussed primarily on its questionable legality. However, the ten judges considering the case should also keep in mind that the rules are pointless.

For eight years the press has treated Obama like the protagonist in some stage play, personalizing his policy struggles as a heroic effort of one...

Trump is ahead with Republicans (77%-13%), unaffiliated voters (41%-33%), men (49%-37%) and non-Hispanic whites (53%-33%). Trump still has very strong support in North Florida (53%-37%) and Southwest Florida (51%-36%).

Gerald Butts, principal secretary to Justin Trudeau, used social media to make the link between criticism of the Liberal cabinet minister and a campaign that falsely claimed that U.S. President Barack Obama was not born in America. Butts specifically called out the Globe and Mail on Wednesday evening after it published an editorial about Monsef online. The editorial appeared in Thursday's newspaper.

    You've heard and read by now lots of spin and speculation about who won and where the polls are going to move after Monday's presidential debate. We'll know the answers to these questions soon.

But it is nonetheless true that Trump has inspired a group of remarkably passionate and committed followers.

This is the true corrective of abuses of Constitutional power.” –Thomas Jefferson What is wrong with us, America? The answer to that question is, “I am.” We are, each of us, what’s wrong with America. As citizens of the United States we are responsible for what takes place in our country and...
