    Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact. The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak. If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point. The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period....

    A crowd of about one trillion people attended the hard-left progressive One Nation rally on the Mall Saturday in Washington, D.C. Leave aside for a moment that there are around seven billion people inhabiting the entire planet, attendees came from as far away as Alpha Centauri and Uranus to attend the rally in support of Barack Obama and his big government agenda. All of these people want free health care (they already got the free lunch and T-shirt when they were bused in). In all seriousness, if you weren't watching MSNBC's kind coverage

    People have been trying to state accurately how many people Glenn Beck drew for his rally in DC. Of course, all have been referring to those who attended there. Estimates have been made from ground level photos, areal views, calculations by square footage of the mall divided by the amount of space a person occupies…and standing shoulder to shoulder, comparisons to previous rallies and events there, and even comparing the crowds to how many people fill various football stadiums. The assumptions for calculating the crowd go on and on. However, forgotten in those calculations are the number of people under...

    WASHINGTON - What a difference a nomination makes. Now that he's wrapped up the Republican nomination for president, Sen. John McCain has decided to attend the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Cincinnati in July. A year ago when he was just one of a pack of GOP contenders, he turned down the civil rights group's invitation. McCain disclosed his plans in an interview with the African-American publication Essence, which was released Tuesday. Asked how he might reach out to the black community, McCain replied that he would "go to places and venues...

    Miko, the police service dog who died in the line of duty last month, got a hero's farewell Wednesday morning during a memorial service attended by approximately 200 people. The ceremony, which was held at Reid Park, was attended by law enforcement agencies from all over the state, as well as Tucson residents who wanted to express their gratitude for Miko's 2 1/2 years of service with the Tucson Police Department. "Law enforcement officers are one of a few people who pledge to give up their lives for others, and that commitment transcends to our K-9s," Police Chief Richard Miranda...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein and four other defendants refused to attend their trial Wednesday, and their defense attorneys boycotted the proceedings, demanding the removal of the chief judge they claim is biased against the former Iraqi leader. Chief judge Raouf Abdel-Rahman pressed ahead with court-appointed defense lawyers and only three defendants present, hearing five prosecution witnesses. After a 4 1/2-hour session, the trial was adjourned until Thursday. Abdel-Rahman first held a half-hour closed session Wednesday, barring media from the courtroom. It was not clear whether Saddam was brought in for the closed hearing, and court officials did not say...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2005 – With Vice President Richard B. Cheney and his wife, Lynne, in front-row seats, Afghan President Hamid Karzai opened the first session of his country's new parliament today in Kabul, Afghanistan.

"Establishment of the parliament completed the main pillar of the government of Afghanistan in light of the constitution." During his hour-long speech to the first elected legislature since 1969, Karzai said "Afghanistan and the United States share common views on combating terrorism." "Terrorism...

    Few Attend Dueling Rallies at Bush Ranch Saturday November 26, 2005 10:31 PM By ANGELA K. BROWN Associated Press Writer CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - A repeat of last summer's dueling rallies against the war and in support of President Bush drew much small crowds to Crawford on a cool, rainy Saturday. About a dozen Bush supporters stood downtown with signs, one reading: ``Real America won't wimp out.'' Throughout the morning, shoppers and a few tourists leaving souvenir stores stopped in the tent to voice their support for the president. Closer to the Bush ranch, where the president celebrated Thanksgiving with...

    President will not attend Earth Summit By David Usborne in New York 17 August 2002 Arguably the most important prospective participant in the Earth Summit in Johannesburg confirmed yesterday that he will skip it altogether. His name is George Bush and almost no one will be surprised at his decision. Instead, the Bush administration is sending Colin Powell, the Secretary of State, to lead the American delegation at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, which is due to discuss ways of raising living standards in developing countries without harming the environment. The decision by President Bush to remain at his...
