    WASHINGTON — Despite the Republican strategy of passing piecemeal immigration reform, Sen. John McCain predicted today that comprehensive legislation can pass the GOP-controlled House. “I think this fall is very important,” McCain said at a forum hosted by AFL-CIO and the Economic Policy Institute. “Let’s say we enact it, comprehensive immigration reform — I don’t think it gains a single Hispanic voter, but what it does, it puts us on a playing field where we can compete for the Hispanic voter,” McCain told PBS’ Gwen Ifill. “If we don’t do that, frankly, I don’t see — I see further polarization...
  • RUSH: Republicans must walk away from any deal with Obama and the Democrats on the fiscal cliff

    The Right Scoop ^ | 11-29-2012 | The Right Scoop
    Yesterday Charles Krauthammer said that Republicans have leverage right now with the president on this fiscal cliff deal because if tax rates go up on all Americans, Obama’s second term will begin in a recession as the higher tax rates will slow growth even more, and Krauthammer contends that Obama doesn’t want that. But Rush passionately disagrees noting that analysis disregards Obama’s entire first term. Rush believes that Obama doesn’t care about having a successful economy in his second term, that it’s all part of his push to transform this country into a welfare state because that’s what is fair...

    A six-month-old rescue puppy thought dead has given some hope to a family in tornado-ravaged Massachusetts, after he was miraculously found in a flattened home. The deadly twister struck Monson on Wednesday, killing at least four and leaving more than 200 people injured in the surrounding areas. Audrey Carabetta and her family feared the worst for her new family member Shadow after he escaped from refuge in their basement, and heard him crying for help. Ms Carabetta recalled the horrific incident, when the puppy unexpectedly pushed his way out as heavy winds circled their home. She told CNN: 'You could...

    No, Mr. President, you don't eat the hot towel. The very first state dinner that the already departed social secretary Desiree Rogers threw at the Obama White House was for Manmohan Singh, India's prime minister, not to be confused with the gatecrashing Salahis, who attended anyway and have been milking their infamy ever since. State dinners aside, the Obamas have roiled the Washington social set with their new rules prohibiting mingling and a reception line. But in New Delhi, Singh returned the favor for the Obamas on Monday night, sitting on the American president's right while India's president, Pratibha Patil,...

    ( UN investigator Richard Goldstone, who authored a recent report essentially equating the “war crimes” of Israel and Hamas, now says that Israel’s self-investigation has been cowardly. Goldstone spoke on Tuesday at the UN Human Rights Council - “a misnamed institution if there ever was one,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the UN General Assembly last week in an internationally-acclaimed speech. Netanyahu decried the Human Rights Council's lack of response to the thousands of Hamas-fired rockets at Israel over the course of eight years.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 7/8/09 | Susan Ferrechio
    As the Senate debates two separate health care proposals, President Barack Obama is making it known from overseas that he wants the one that creates a massive government run health care option, not the co-operative system some Democrats are considering. Obama sent out a statement letting senators know he is "pleased" with the progress but believes "as I've said before, that one of the best ways to bring down costs, provide more choices, and assure quality is a public option that will force the insurance companies to compete and keep them honest." He added, "I look forward to a final...
  • New group plans Ayers attack on Obama (The Bombs are Falling Baby! Ad is up and running in VA!)

    A new conservative group has produced a television ad attacking Barack Obama for his relationship with former Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers. "How much do your really know about Barack Obama? What does he really believe?" asks the ad, which then cites the failed attack on the Capitol on 9/11, and links it to the Weather Underground attack on the Capitol decades earlier. The group says it will spend $2.8 million airing the ad in Ohio and Michigan — which would be the largest single third-party expenditure this cycle. "Why would Barack Obama be friends with someone who bombed the...

    Iran blows away Bush's warm words at UN By Alec Russell in Washington and Harry Mount in New York (Filed: 20/09/2006) Iran's hard-line president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made an unbridled attack last night on the foreign policies of Britain and America and in particular the invasion of Iraq. In remarks that will infuriate the Bush administration and London and were clearly aimed at the two allies, he said the United Nations Security Council was being abused "as an instrument of threat and coercion". America and Britain have been trying to rally the Security Council to confront Iran over its nuclear ambitions....

With the new Fighter Aircraft Communication Enhancement, or FACE, pod, ground units in combat are now able to do just that. Fielded for the first time in late 2004, the FACE pod is a solution to communication problems often experienced by aircraft in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan. Used effectively in several theaters, the FACE pod allows ground units to communicate with...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court today refused to hear an appeal by two North Carolina-based tobacco companies who claimed California's tough anti-smoking ads smeared their reputations. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., now Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Reynolds American Inc., and Lorillard Tobacco Co. of Greensboro, N.C., had asked the justices to overturn a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that rejected the companies' claims that their First Amendment rights were violated by California's ad campaign. California uses part of an 87-cent tax on every package of cigarettes to fund health education that includes a campaign to discourage smoking. The ads included a...

The idea: parents are video taped reading to their children. Airmen at this base can read one of more than 200 stories to their children or simply talk to their families at the learning resource center --...

    The questions that won't go away for Condi Rice By Alec Russell in Birmingham, Alabama (Filed: 24/10/2005) Condoleezza Rice, the ultra-poised American secretary of state, has persistently said that she has no intention of running for the White House and that she expects people to believe her. All weekend, as she roamed her home state of Alabama with her guest Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, she fended off questions about her future. When a girl asked the question on a visit to her old school she looked weary before flashing her famous smile and saying: "I don't want to run...
