    The tie is broken for now, with Republican Meg Whitman, coming off last weekend’s state GOP Convention, moving out to her best showing yet in the race to be the next governor of California. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in California finds Whitman earning 48% support, while Democrat Jerry Brown picks up 40% of the vote. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. When leaners are included in the new totals, Whitman posts a 51% to 43% lead over Brown. Leaners are those who initially indicate no...

    President Barack Obama's budget has added more than $100 billion of federal taxpayers' money to what is called "education," so that means it will be spent by alumni of the Saul Alinsky school of radical community organizing and/or the Chicago Democratic machine. Obama is using the public schools to recruit a private army of high-schoolers to "build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda." We now know that Obama's "agenda" is to move the United States into European-style Socialism.

    Senator Christopher Dodd, facing an uphill battle for his senate seat next year, received a little Christmas present from Harry Reid in the health care reform "manager's amendment:" a $100 million plum for a hospital. The AP reports that the $100 million will be used for "a health care facility that provides research, inpatient tertiary care, or outpatient clinical services." It must be affiliated with an academic health center at a public research university in the United States "that contains a State's sole public academic medical and dental school." Would it surprise you to learn that Connecticut has only one...

    Senate Immigration Bill Would Allow 100 Million New Legal Immigrants over the Next Twenty Years by Robert Rector WebMemo #1076 May 15, 2006 | | If enacted, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (CIRA, S.2611) would be the most dramatic change in immigration law in 80 years, allowing an estimated 103 million persons to legally immigrate to the U.S. over the next 20 years—fully one-third of the current population of the United States. Much attention has been given to the fact that the bill grants amnesty to some 10 million illegal immigrants. Little or no attention has been given to the...

    WASHINGTON – "San Diego defense contractor SAIC said Thursday it had fixed flaws in heavily criticized software it developed for the FBI as part of a $170 million contract to help the agency track terrorists and manage criminal cases. "We fully conformed to the contract we have and gave the taxpayers real value for their money," said Arnold L. Punaro, executive vice president of SAIC. He blamed the FBI for the initial problems, saying the agency had a parade of program managers and demanded too many design changes. During 15 months that SAIC worked on the program, 19 different government...
  • CA: Biowasteful spending? DHS can't say how it spent $100 million

    California politicians love to gripe about how the state gets shorted by the federal government. Those complaints sound peculiar against the background of some recent news. Over the last three years, the state Department of Health Services has received about $100 million in federal funds to fight bioterrorism, and officials there can't seem to account for it. Where has the money gone? DHS officials can't seem to say. Department officials were unable to provide Bee science writer Edie Lau last week with a detailed breakdown of how the $100 million was spent. And this comes after two recent reports that...
