  • 'Veterans died! Get us the answers!': Republicans boil over as Veterans Affairs officials answer

    Daily Mail ^ | 5/28/14 | David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor
    Sparks flew during a rare late-night hearing before the House Veterans Affairs Committee, as visibly upset Republicans raked VA officials over the coals while the ink was still wet on a scathing inspector general report condemning the agency's deadly failures. The report found that in Phoenix, Arizona alone, 1,700 U.S. military veterans were denied medical care and others waited an average of 115 days to be seen by a doctor – and that officials covered up the lapses by manipulating wait-lists and other official records. Tennessee Republican Rep. Phil Roe, a physician and veteran of the Army Medical Corps, summed...

    PARIS — France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from the United States over new spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel said in separate reports published Monday that the US National Security Agency (NSA) secretly monitored tens of millions of phone communications in France and hacked into former Mexican president Felipe Calderon’s email account. The allegations come on top of revelations already leaked by Snowden and published in June that the US had a vast, secret program called PRISM to monitor Internet users, which French prosecutors...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sept. 30 is the deadline for thousands of American businesses -- including power plants, petroleum refineries, landfills and large engine manufacturers -- to report their greenhouse gas emissions to the U.S. government for the first time. The EPA on Monday announced a new tool that will allow 7,000 companies in “all sectors” of the U.S. economy to submit their greenhouse gas pollution data electronically. Electronic submission of the data is supposed to make the process easier. But the reporting process is complex and cumbersome. For starters, the EPA's ‘Frequently-Asked Questions” Web page includes 21 sections that cover 390...

    A teacher stands in front of her classroom of students. She begins to review some of the previous day’s homework that she assigned her students to study and complete. She asks: “Can someone give me the answer for question #1?” She then adds with a smile: “Remember to raise your hands if you have the answer.” The response is mixed. Some of her students almost literally jump out of their seats as their hands shoot skyward. With great enthusiasm they chime in: “I know it, I know it! Pick me, teacher! Pick me!” These students had obviously “done their homework”...

They are not polite. It's all a rehearsal for Kagan's big performance next week during her confirmation hearings at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Nov. 20, 2009 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Canadian Defense Minister Peter MacKay met here today to discuss bilateral, hemispheric issues, but reporters’ questions afterward were all about Afghanistan. In their meeting, MacKay and Gates discussed building a maritime surveillance capability, defense issues in the Arctic and security cooperation for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia. But Afghanistan was in the background of all discussions. In his second-term inaugural address yesterday, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said that he wants to assume security control in his country by 2014, and Gates was asked if...

    Was San Diego U.S. Attorney Carol Lam fired because her bribery investigation of Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham led straight to the powerful Republican chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Jerry Lewis of Redlands? This crucial question was the subject of pure speculation until the release this week of some 150 pages of e-mails between the Justice Department and the White House. The documents, turned over to the House Judiciary Committee, contain the first solid evidence that Lam's public corruption probe may have been a factor in her dismissal. On May 11, 2006, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' senior deputy, Kyle...

Francis Collins, the director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute, claims there is a rational basis for a creator and that scientific discoveries bring man “closer to God”. His book, The Language of God, to be published in September, will reopen the age-old debate about the relationship between science and faith. “One of the great tragedies of our time is this impression that has been...

    WASHINGTON - Congressional Republicans and Democrats demanded answers from the Bush administration Thursday about a government spy agency secretly collecting records of ordinary Americans' phone calls to build a database of every call made within the country. Facing intense criticism from Congress, President Bush did not confirm the work of the National Security Agency but sought to assure Americans that their privacy is being "fiercely protected." "We're not mining or trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans," Bush said before leaving for a commencement address in Mississippi. The disclosure, reported in USA Today, could complicate Bush's bid...

This comes before the Senate begins consideration of several immigration proposals, the latest coming from Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa.

    OAKLAND, Calif. - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation Monday authorizing the completion of a new eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, ending a months-long stalemate over how to pay the spiraling costs of the project. The law protects the popular, but costly suspension design originally selected for the bridge, which the Republican governor once advocated ditching for a less expensive approach. It also finances most construction cost overruns by raising tolls on nearly every other bridge in the San Francisco Bay area. Schwarzenegger praised the bipartisan cooperation that produced the bridge plan and called for a similar approach...

Neither happened. Still, this first debate offered an opportunity--as a result of the fact that the two participants performed so well--a real contrast between the candidates.

    Stone Age Columbus - questions and answersWhat was the Ice Age climate like in southern France/Spain? During the last glacial maximum around 20,000 years ago the climate was a lot colder and drier than now. In southern France one could expect summer temperatures of between 5-10°C and winter temperatures dropping below -20°C. Even so, there were three basic land types that had their own advantages and disadvantages for people: Wide coastal plain that was probably an open grass land with sparse vegetation Uplands that would have been much like the Arctic tundra today Inland valleys that were well sheltered and...

  • The failure that is Barbara Walters, the Lautenberg Principle, and my non-interview with Hillary!

    Please indulge me a bit... Many of us saw it...the interview between Barbara and Hillary. An obviously scripted puff piece that offered us no insight whatsoever (as compared to the anal probing given to candidate George W Bush turned President) into the insights of a woman who, by all admissable evidence, has aspirations to be the First Woman President with her duty bound, excess, narcissistic baggage...ex-president Bill Clinton as First...Man? Or more realistically, what exactly would Bill Clinton be? The First White, Black Man similar to the First White, Black President? Or howabout the First Impeached, White, Black Man similar...

    UNITED NATIONS/BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.N. arms inspectors are expected to report on Thursday that Iraq has still failed to answer key questions, providing possible fresh ammunition for Washington's case for war.

U.N. experts said on the eve of the report to the United Nations Security Council that Iraq had not cleared up issues about biological and chemical programs, including...

    KUWAIT CITY – Ashwaq Abdel-Rida has never known her father. She was born eight months after he was captured by Iraqi soldiers while shopping for his pregnant wife in August 1990. Musa Abdel-Rida, a sergeant in the Kuwaiti police, hasn't been seen since. Twelve years after Iraq's occupation of its southern neighbor, 605 Kuwaitis are still missing. Their fate remains a highly emotional issue in this country of only 860,000, and has helped sustain a deep animosity for Saddam Hussein and his regime. Iraq says all Kuwaiti prisoners were released and denies holding any more. But last week, Iraq announced...
