    UNFORTUNATELY, Chi na's president had to dash home to suppress ethnic riots. Had he stayed in Italy at the recent G-8 summit, he could have continued the Herculean task of disabusing Barack Obama of his amazingly durable belief (shared by Congress) that China -- and India, Brazil, Mexico and other developing nations -- will sacrifice their modernization on the altar of climate change. China has a more pressing agenda, and not even suppressing riots tops the list. China made this clear in June, when its vice premier said, opaquely, that China would "actively" participate in climate-change talks on a basis...

    This past week, President Obama did the most presidential thing a Democrat president can do: inappropriately fantasized about a young woman’s rear end. If he wasn’t so busy calling Obama’s campaign the “biggest fairy tale” he’d ever seen and fuming over his failure to vicariously earn the 2008 nomination through his wife, Bill Clinton would be proud. Immediately after the release of the incriminating photograph, news outlets clamored to defend their beloved leader. Media Matters (which dedicates itself to bashing conservatives) pounced on the Drudge Report for daring to post the photograph. MSNBC called the picture a “right wing smear.”...
  • Voters want Britain to scrap all nuclear weapons, ICM poll shows

    Voters want Britain to scrap nuclear weapons altogether rather than replace Trident, according to a new Guardian/ICM poll today. The result marks a sharp turnaround in public opinion amid growing debate about the cost of a new generation of nuclear weapons and the impact of conventional defence cutbacks on the war in Afghanistan. For decades nuclear disarmament has been seen as a minority issue, with most voters assumed to favour continued investment in an independent British nuclear weapons system. But today's poll shows that 54% of all voters would prefer to abandon nuclear weapons rather than put money into a...

    Russia’s provocative U-turn signalled clearly that G8 pronouncements are immaterial and should not be taken too seriously. In reality, Moscow has no intention whatsoever to cut its emissions in the near future. Quite the opposite. Just over a month ago, the Russian President announced that his country intended to increase CO2 emissions by 30% by 2020. No wonder that G8 states find it impossible to agree on a credible, short-term emissions target as the developing world is demanding. No wonder then that India and China remain opposed to any target setting. Neither can afford to sign up to mandatory emissions...

    Benedict XVI returns to the principal themes of his social encyclical reaffirming the need for a global commitment to development, to eliminate "social inequality and structural injustices that are no longer tolerable." The social question has become an "anthropological” issue which implies a way of conceiving man in truth, body and soul. Prayers for Honduras and a farewell ahead of holidays in Les Combes (Aosta Valley). Vatican City (AsiaNews) - "The absolutism of technology, which finds its clearest expression in certain practices contrary to life”, could "draw dark scenarios for the future of humanity": Benedict XVI returns to warn against...

    The Secret Service might want to put a new threat on its watch list: the mad-as-hell mama of the 17-year-old Brazilian beauty ogled by President Obama and French leader Nicolas Sarkozy at the G8 summit last week. "If I were there, I would have boxed their ears," said Lucia Rodrigues, 37. "They should be ashamed of themselves." Patriarch Eduardo Tavares, after finally getting around to seeing the famous photo of his daughter from behind, quickly changed his tune from proud papa to furious father.

    MSNBC’s David Shuster and Tamron Hall labeled the circulation of a photo of President Obama...a “right wing smear,” and singled out Fox News and Drudge as culprits. They brought on a Media Matters spokesman, who accused these sites of being motivated by a “racist stereotype of an oversexed black man being a predator.” They let this accusation go unanswered (audio clip from the promos and the segment available here). Shuster and Hall promoted the segment on the Obama picture from the start of the 4 pm Eastern hour of MSNBC’s live coverage. A graphic on-screen at the top of the...

    As nature and science continue to take the steam out of the global-warming balloon, the recent G8 summit produced a tentative promise that leading industrialized nations won't let the planet's temperature rise higher than 3.6 F above some arbitrary period before tailpipes. Since the earth has cooled 1.8 F (1 C) since 1998, it's unlikely action will be required anytime soon. So what do the "leaders" propose to do if on some distant date the planet exceeds their capricious temperature limit? They didn't say. But warmists' unshakable egoism notwithstanding, humans are powerless to alter the climate, intentionally or otherwise. How...

    As the war over alleged U.S. tax evaders and Swiss banking secrecy laws heats up, UBS is at risk of losing both its banking license and U.S. assets, says Ken Rubinstein, senior partner at Rubinstein & Rubinstein, and a specialist in areas of estate and tax planning. This week, the Swiss government said it would seize UBS data in order to prevent the Justice Department from obtaining the identities of 52,000 American account holders. But Rubinstein doesn't believe that will shield UBS, since the bank earlier this year admitted it send private bankers to the U.S. with the express intent...

    It was more handshake diplomacy by President Obama as he became the first US president to exchange a face-to-face greeting with Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi. As Chairman of the African Union, Qadhafi was invited to attend the G8 Summit Leaders dinner tonight in L’Aquila, Italy. As the chiefs of state and heads of government gathered for a class photo, Qadhafi approached President Obama and they shook hands. It was a polite encounter, conducted according to protocol. Qadhafi smiled, Mr. Obama not so much. Back in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan would sooner have cut off his arm than shake hands...

    Wealthy nations agree on temperature cap in fight against global warming.... leaders of the world's richest industrial countries pledged Wednesday to seek dramatic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to slow dangerous climate change. They agreed for the first time that worldwide temperatures must not rise more than a few degrees. However, their goals are nonbinding, and it's far from clear they will be met. The wealthy nations failed to persuade the leaders of big developing countries to promise to cut their own fast-spreading pollution, unable to overcome arguments that the well-established industrial giants aren't doing enough in the...

    The G8 summit in Italy is the sixth time Angela Merkel and Barack Obama have met - yet it seems all is not quite right between the pair. Does the US President have a problem with the German Chancellor, or she with him? It all began a year ago with Obama’s speech in Berlin. The young White House candidate wanted to address the crowd in front of the prestigious Brandenburg Gate, but Merkel refused. She did not want to anger the then president, George W. Bush. Obama has not forgotten the snub… According to the 'Washington Post', Obama has "encountered...
