    Sen.Tim Scott (R-SC) took on PresidentBarack Obama‘s recently announcedapproval of additional prisoner transfers from Guantanamo Bay with a reworked version of the famous poem, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”Originally titled “A Visit from St. Nicholas,”Clement Clarke Moore‘s holiday poem has now become an anti-Obama screed that hopes to go viral with the hashtag #KeepThemThere.“Twas the night before Christmas / When all through the White House / The President was transferring terrorists as a quiet as a mouse,” reads them poetic complaint. “The terrorists were nestled all snug in their well-guarded beds / While visions of resturning to al-Qaeda or ISIS...

    In a few minutes, President Obama will address the nation about the beheading of an American by the terrorist group ISIS. But before facing the cameras, Obama sent out a fundraising appeal. "Nothing has ever been more important than fighting for folks like you. You are my priority," writes Obama. "And right now, a focus of that fight has to be getting people who really care about making things better for you elected. The upcoming elections could determine whether or not we have a Congress who will work with me to help you. "That's why it's so important I spend...

    Explanation: Sungrazing Comet ISON reached perihelion, its closest approach to the Sun, yesterday, November 28, at 18:45 UT. The comet passed just over 1 million kilometers above the solar surface, a distance less than the diameter of the Sun. These two panels follow ISON before (right) and after its close approach, imaged by the LASCO instrument onboard the Sun staring SOHO spacecraft. Overwhelming sunlight is blocked by LASCO's central occulting disk with a white circle indicating the Sun's positon and scale. The bright comet is seen along its path at the bottom of the before panel, but something much fainter...

    A local news station has received the e-mails that connect the dots: Clearly they needed more time and that led to a new plan: Flee the state. I think this makes it pretty clear that Wisconsin Democratic Senators were always working at the behest of unions. When their initial plan for a legal, if unusual, stall tactic failed, they resorted to running.

    With little fanfare, Rationer-in-Chief Donald Berwick, President Obamas choice to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, appeared before the House Ways and Means Committee and did his best impression of Gumby twisting and turning his support for rationing health care. Berwick has championed the British health care system for years proclaiming his outright support of rationing. In 2009, Berwick said, The decision is not whether or not we will ration care the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open. In a 2008 speech, Berwick proclaimed, I am romantic about the NHS; I love...

    CMI ^ | Lita Cosner
    Books claiming that science disproves young-earth creationism are very common, and books that claim the Bible itself does not mandate a literal interpretation of the first few chapters of Genesis are not in short supply either. David Snokes book A Biblical Case for an Old Earth ostensibly falls in the latter group, though his main reason for rejecting biblical creation is really uniformitarian science. Books like these generally dont pose a threat to informed creationists, and this one is no exception. In fact, Snoke could have saved himself a lot of trouble if he had actually taken the time to...
  • Nation Safer Now Than Before 9/11, DoD Official Says

    ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 21, 2007 America is safer today than before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Defense Departments top homeland defense official said today. It is no accident that America has not suffered another terrorist attack on its home soil since 9/11, Acting Assistant Defense Secretary for Homeland Defense Peter F. Verga said after delivering opening remarks at the departments Homeland Defense Conference here. My view is that the only reason we havent been attacked is the enemy has not been able to do it, Verga said. Theyre not waiting for some strategic opportunity. Theyre going...

    FORT BLISS, Texas (Army News Service, June 5, 2006) The first-ever Afghan soldier to attend the Sergeants Major Academy has graduated as a member of SMA Class 56, at Fort Bliss, Texas, May 19. Sgt. Maj. Roshan Safi was selected to attend the U.S. SMA on recommendations from his commanders and U.S. Army mentors in Afghanistan because of his consistent leadership potential as a career-soldier, which began with the post-Taliban controlled Afghan military. We have officer and enlisted training in Afghanistan, says Safi. But in the future we want to establish more non commissioned officer enlisted and officer schools....

William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, speaks to the media at a news conference in New Orleans on Monday May 15, 2006. Congressman Jefferson declared his innocence in light of a federal bribery probe.

Now he's a drag on his party and a disgrace to his district--which happens to represent...

    Scientists use quantum gravity to describe the universe before the Big Bang.Scientists may finally have an answer to a "big" question: If the Big Bang was the beginning of the universe, what could have caused it to happen? Using a theory called "loop quantum gravity," a group led by Penn State professor Abhay Ashtekar has shown that just before the Big Bang occurred, another universe very similar to ours may have been contracting. According to the group's findings, this previous universe eventually became so dense that a normally negligible repulsive component of the gravitational force overpowered the attractive component, causing...

    Is it possible that there were Muslims in the Americas before Columbus? Some claim that Muslims came to America hundreds of years before Columbus arrived in the New World. Are the claims true? Every elementary school student knows the story of Christopher Columbus; that he set sail from Spain and mistakenly discovered America in 1492, landing on an island in the Caribbean. Columbus encountered native inhabitants of this new world, and thinking that he had landed in India, he called them Indians. While many of the details have been mythologized or fabricated over the ensuing 500 years, Columbuss expedition represents...

    5/1/2006 - HUNT, Texas (AFPN) -- On the banks of the Guadalupe River, a veterans group hosts a retreat that helps couples reconnect so they can better cope with life after deployments. Six couples attended the retreat hosted by the Military, Veteran and Family Assistance Foundation at the Heart of the Hills Camp here from April 20 to 27. I thought this was going to be very structured -- a mandatory fun kind of thing, said Senior Airman Aaron Childs, who attended with his wife, Mellissa. But its nothing like that. Its laid back. Everyone is here to help you....

    3/31/2006 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AFPN) -- Service Before Self, one of the Air Forces core values, is on the minds of 135 U.S. Air Force Academy cadets who are working during their alternative spring break in areas damaged by Hurricane Katrina. The project is part of the Cadet Service Learning program which centers on community involvement. CSL takes this core value from theoretical concepts of the classroom and a training environment, said Maj. Eric Ecklund, of the academys Center for Character Development. It allows cadets to put it to the test in real situations, meeting the needs...

    Before Scandinavia: These could be the first skiers By Robert Marquand | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor BEIJING Move over Bode. You may have competition you don't know about - among a sturdy skiing clan in northwest China. They are central Asians, Mongols, and Kazaks, living in the remote Altay mountains of Xinjiang province, where some claim skiing was first conceived. Using curved planks whose design dates back 2,000 years, the Altaic peoples are formidable skiers. They might not win a medal on perfectly groomed Olympic trails. But they can break their own paths, track elk for...
