    Aatef Karinaoui says that the current Arab elected officials in the Knesset do not truly represent the Arab-Israeli public and spend most of their time bashing Israel instead. Karinaoui, a Arab Muslim Bedouin from the southern city of Rahat hopes that his new party will make a difference. The party, tenatively called El Amal Lat’gir, translated from Arabic as Hope for Change, will run in the upcoming January 22nd national elections. Karinaoui's views were exposed in an interview with Israeli based journalist Philippe Assouline. Assouline spoke to Israel National Radio about his eye-opening conversation with the Muslim politician. For the...

    Progressive Angst This week the presidentÂ’s positive ratings are hovering around 40-42%; in some polls there is a 10% gap or more between negative and positive appraisals. I expect that they will go back up, and then even lower as the year wears on. But the latest nosedive has prompted many on the left to attack Mr. Obama, from a psychological portrait offered by one Drew Westen to unusual carping from Maureen Dowd, Richard Cohen and E. J Dionne. Cornel West is back again, in rather vicious fashion reminding us that he supposedly helped to introduce Obama to us and...

    Best Notable Quotables of 2010: Demanding Respect for Obama While Still Bashing Bush By Rich Noyes | December 24, 2010 | 11:30 Rich Noyes's picture Even as the public grew increasingly disenchanted with Washington's full-throated liberal policies in 2010, the media elite's partisanship remained on full display. The Media Research Center's Best Notable Quotables of 2010 captured the highlights, as journalists continued to blame America's misfortunes on George W. Bush, even as they also insisted that Barack Obama deserved more credit for his amazing accomplishments. In the MRC's "They Don't Miss Him Yet Award for Still Bashing Bush," Time's Joe...

    Boston police say they were threatened by raucous partiers at an upscale booze bash in a luxury pad at the Ritz-Carlton, then tailed by an entourage packed in a 2010 Porsche Panamera as they hauled away their prisoners — prompting the unlicensed sports car driver’s arrest. “You have no idea who you are (expletive) with. I have friends who will take care of you,” Angelos Markakis, 22, of New York screamed at cops early Saturday morning, according to a police report. He was charged with resisting arrest and witness intimidation.

    On her Bravo TV show Tuesday night, left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin referred to Sen. Scott Brown's two daughters as "prostitutes," and a CNN reporter apparently thought it hysterical. [Audio available here.] Griffin, who was readying herself for a trip to Washington, DC to rally and drum up support for a repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," brought CNN reporters (husband and wife) Dana Bash and John King onto the show to "coach" her for handling Washington. Bash is a congressional correspondent for CNN, while King anchors the news hour "John King, USA." When the couple showed Griffin a picture of...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Critics heaped scorn on Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Monday over a secret prison program that allowed hundreds of inmates — some violent offenders — to be released early, including some who only spent 11 days behind bars. An Associated Press report released Sunday showed that more than 850 inmates — including repeat drunk drivers, drug users and even people convicted of battery and weapons violations — were released early under the program since September. This happened because the Corrections Department abandoned a policy that all prisoners serve at least 61 days and gave inmates months of...

As a presenter at Saturday's “Film Independent's Spirit Awards” carried live at 2pm PST/5pm EST on the Independent Film Channel (IFC), actress America Ferrera (IMDb page), the title role star of ABC's Ugly Betty, interjected a bit of political commentary suggesting the U.S. will not be “the land of the free” again until President Bush leaves office. Taking the stage inside a tent on the Santa Monica beach, Ferrera was joined by actor Zach Braff, a star on NBC's Scrubs, to present the award for the...

    Associated Press BAGHDAD, Iraq — Preliminary figures show that violent deaths in Iraq dropped substantially in August from record levels the previous month, Health Ministry officials said Thursday. Most of the recorded killings were of civilians. At least 973 violent deaths were recorded throughout Iraq as of Wednesday, Dr. Riad Abdul Amir of the ministry's statistics bureau told The Associated Press. They included 715 civilians, 80 Iraqi soldiers, 74 police and 104 "terrorists," he said, apparently referring to both Sunni and Shiite militants. Accurate figures on the number of people who have died in the Iraq conflict have long been...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Computer server maker Sun Microsystems Inc., whose revenue has declined four years in a row, said Wednesday it planned to cut 4,000 to 5,000 jobs in an effort to return to consistent profitability. The cuts, which will reduce Sun's 37,500-person work force by 11 percent to 13 percent over the next six months, will cost Santa Clara-based Sun from $340 million to $500 million over the next several quarters, the company said. Sun executives expect the plan, which also includes selling real estate and exiting leases, to save the company from $480 million to $590 million, once...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts.

    Lets give all the federal governments power to the democrat party and see what happens. Now that I think about it something like that has been done in Hawaii. The state government has been just about totally dominated by Democrats since the 60's. Lets take a look at Hawaii today. Hawaii has one of the biggest state governments in the country. Lowest home owner rate. Just about the highest taxes in the country and dont nit pick im not only talking about sales tax. Highest welfare rate. Second highest gas prices. Most unfriendly to all private business small and large...

    "Al Gore: Wackadoo Wing"  May 29, 2004... Al Gore continued his vitriolic rhetoric against President Bush during an hour-long speech this week at New York University... a speech sponsored by MoveOn.org PAC. During his speech, Gore called for the resignations of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and CIA Director George Tenet. Also targeted by Gore for resignation were three of Mr. Rumsfeld's top civilian deputies - the deputy defense secretary, Paul D. Wolfowitz; Douglas J. Feith, the under secretary for policy; and Stephen A. Cambone, the under secretary for intelligence. By many news accounts,...
  • Bye Bye, Southern Baptist Convention

    The Slacktivist ^ | March 2004
    SBC (1845-2005) The Southern Baptist Convention is considering changing its name. The convention began in 1845, in a rift among American Baptists over the matter of slavery -- hence the "Southern." But the SBC points out that their fellowship today is a global association, present and growing in the dozens of different countries to which it has spread from its base in the American South. The convention's name, they say, should therefore reflect this new, larger-than-regional reality: "We are no longer a regional influence,'' the Rev. Jack Graham, Southern Baptist president, told the group's executive committee last month. ''We are...

    Would you cast Liza Minnelli as Superwoman? More to the point, as a wildly drunk and vicious Superwoman? Her estranged husband, David Gest, insists it's a role she played during their 16-month marriage. He filed a $10 million suit Tuesday claiming she drew super strength from vodka, drinking up to a quart at a time and beating him as he pleaded with her to stop. Perhaps that was Krypton Vodka? Or, at least, Ephedra Enhanced Vodka? Gest, 50, who has reportedly checked into a rehabilitation center in Hawaii to recover from his injuries, didn't say. But Dr. Barbara Krantz, medical...

    The Double Agents Who Brought Down SaddamBy Michael WareTime.com | October 17, 2003 Saddam Hussein didn't want to believe what his intelligence networks were saying. Before the war last spring, says a former colonel in the Iraqi intelligence service, Saddam's analysts presented him with classified reports predicting a decisive U.S. victory. The documents described how the Iraqi security forces, already outmatched, had been undermined by Washington's success in recruiting Iraqi spies and double agents. Internal intelligence reported to Saddam that Iraq's defenses would probably collapse. "We diplomatically suggested he should not stay here," the colonel says, "because we couldn't tell...

You heard what Kerry said about our “unilateral actions” in Iraq, even though we have about two dozen nations on board. (See: Stop the Tape! Kerry Quashed). Well, Governor Howard Dean of Vermont has scolded Kerry for his hypocrisy on Saddam. Dean noted tartly that Kerry and many of his other rivals, voted to give...

    Cannabis poses a greater threat to health than tobacco, lung experts have warned. The warning comes on the day that Home Secretary David Blunkett is due to make a Commons statement about the future of government drug policy. Many young people are simply not aware that smoking cannabis may put them at increased risk of respiratory cancers and infections . Dame Helena Shovelton: The Home Affairs Select Committee has recommended that cannabis is downgraded from a class B drug to class C. This would mean that possession would lead to a caution, rather than arrest. The British Lung Foundation is...
