    Chicago Tribune ^ | September 24 | Staff
    Are three cop killers on the loose in Lake County? Nearly a month has passed since the gunshot death of a northern Illinois police lieutenant shocked Americans coast to coast. Vivid accounts of the massive manhunt for three ostensible killers drove news accounts for days. The funeral of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz — "G.I. Joe" to many friends — attracted fellow officers from across the U.S. The wails of bagpipes, a trumpeting of taps and seven helicopters flying in a "V" formation bid him a final tribute. Unresolved then, as now, was the explanation of what led to the lieutenant's...

    In the weeks since Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan to be his running mate, there has been a lot of talk about whether Ryan will face problems with Catholic voters over the fact that church leaders have repeatedly criticized his budget for its extreme cuts to social programs and “fail[ure] to meet moral criteria.” But there has been very little discussion about the much bigger problem Ryan poses for the U.S. Catholic bishops themselves, especially the man who offered the benediction Thursday night after Romney’s acceptance speech—Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Hedren told film executives and fans, “We are dealing with a brain here that was an unusual genius, and evil, and deviant, almost to the point of dangerous, because of the effect that...

Of the negative mood of the country, Oprah added, “I think everybody complaining ought to try it for once.” She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that...

According to Chinese media reports at the time, Hu, saw Bush’s arrangements as insulting.

    LONDON — Spewing oil and alienating Americans with its chief executive’s impolitic remarks, BP may be Public Enemy No. 1 in the United States. But in Britain, where the company is a mainstay of the stock market and a favorite of pension funds, investors and politicians are becoming increasingly angry at the blistering attacks from across the Atlantic. BP’s share price, even after recovering some ground in New York trading on Thursday, has fallen more than 40 percent since the environmental catastrophe in April, and some analysts say the crisis could lead to the takeover or even the bankruptcy of...

    Medal for 'courageous restraint' plan get mixed review from troops By: Sara A. Carter National Security Correspondent May 7, 2010 A proposal to grant medals for "courageous restraint" to troops in Afghanistan who avoid deadly force at a risk to themselves has generated concern among U.S. soldiers and experts who worry it could embolden enemy fighters and confuse friendly forces. Lt. Col. Edward Sholtis, a spokesman for Gen. Stanley A.

Often things take place that one never would have imagined. For most of the last decades of the 20th century, America girded its loins to defeat world communism, at the time led by the Soviets and the Chinese. We lived in fear of nuclear holocaust. We feared Soviet domination. Once our partners in thwarting Nazi domination of the West, the...

  • Why Waxman really canceled his health care ‘show trial’

    Most significantly, documents unearthed by the investigation highlight companies that are considering dumping employees from their current health-care plans in the face of new costs from the health-care law. President Obama repeatedly promised his health-care law would let Americans keep their current insurance if they’re happy with it. A March 3 internal Verizon memo on the impact health-care law said new taxes on insurance companies and health-care equipment manufacturers will be passed onto employers through higher prices. Facing such increased costs, employers like Verizon “may consider exiting the health-care market and send employees to the exchanges,” the memo says. Under...

His most recent battle with the News Corp. (NWS)-owned network hinged on an airing of Fox & Friends, which two weeks ago asked (more than once) whether the crescent-moon shaped logo that the White House used during a nuclear security summit was some sort of Islamic image. As the New York Times recently reported, Stewart had his staff call the White House to ask just that, and lo and behold, discovered that...

    WASHINGTON (March 31) -- Do Democrats need a new "silent majority" to speak up and save them from electoral ruin in November? Does such a group even exist? And, if it does, will the tea party movement prove to be the right-wing mirror of the leftist anti-war movement of the 1960s? These are not idle questions for President Barack Obama, who has seen little bounce from his party's victory in passing health care reform legislation. "The good news for Democrats, after health care passed, was that Democratic intensity levels went up," party strategist James Carville told reporters Wednesday. The bad...

    If homosexuals are allowed to serve in the military, they will be recruiting in the showers, having sex in the barracks, and straights will undergo sensitivity training. Before long, the U.S. may be defended by the sex-obsessed and those who can tolerate kowtowing to them. These are the truths that no one will speak. Forget about ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ (DADT). The issue is NOT about whether those engaging in homosexual sex are, or are not, asked about their ‘sexual preferences.’ The real issue is whether the federal law against sodomy in the armed forces will be abolished either by...

And that has led to a furious exchange...

The figure is short of the 40,000 troops his top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has requested — but remains enough to anger many congressional Democrats, who oppose any potential troop surge, arguing that the mission is too expensive and lacks a clear objective.“I think there will be some disillusionment within his base,” said Paul Kawika Martin, political director for Peace...
