    In both cases, presidents undertook ambitious projects: to remake part of the world, or a huge portion of the economy, along the lines that our government wanted. Redesigning Iraq proved to be impossible, and reorganizing health care may prove impossible as well. It is at least proving to be very difficult. The anti-war movement warned that fighting in Iraq would produce blowback terrorism against American civilians and chemical-weapons deaths among American troops. What actually happened — the disintegration of the Iraqi state followed by America’s desperate attempt to pick up the pieces — did not feature heavily in the opposition’s...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business in St. Louis has apparently botched its third abortion in recent weeks, as it was documented sending another woman to a local hospital the day after Christmas. For the third time since Thanksgiving, the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic transported a woman to the hospital for emergency care, making it one of the most dangerous abortion clinics in the nation, according to officials with Operation Rescue, who informed LifeNews of the incident. As the pro-life group indicated, on December 26, at approximately 9:30 a.m., an ambulance was photographed by local activists loading a Planned Parenthood patient...

    The recording of the 911 call from an apparently badly botched abortion last week at an abortion clinic is Dayton has been made public and the details are shocking for a woman who was victimized. A woman was rushed to the hospital in Dayton, Ohio following a botched late-term abortion that took place at the Women’s Med Center abortion clinic in Dayton. Martin Haskell, who is credit with making the partial-birth abortion procedure a household name, runs the abortion facility that injured the woman. According to local pro-life advocate who filmed emergency medical personnel rushing to the scene, paramedics loaded...

    Brad Hoffman wrote a letter to the editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer allegedly to correct mistakes about Fast and Furious in a previous letter they’d printed. Brad opens with: I am disturbed by statements from Plain Dealer reader Jeff Longo (Letters, Saturday) who condemns U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as an ‘enemy of the Constitution‘ over the Justice Department’s attempted Fast and Furious weapons sting in Mexico. Longo plays fast and loose with the facts in libeling an official whose 28 years of public service have been recognized by presidents from both political parties. I am disturbed that Brad...

    PHOENIX (AP) - A man who bought two rifles found at the scene of the fatal shooting of a federal agent near the Arizona-Mexico border pleaded guilty Thursday to two felony charges in the federal government's botched gun smuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious. Authorities say Jaime Avila Jr. was a member of a 20-person ring accused of buying guns and smuggling them into Mexico for use by the Sinaloa drug cartel. Two AK-47 variants bought by Avila from a suburban Phoenix gun store were found in the aftermath of a December 2010 shootout that mortally wounded Border...

    It's important that we clean up the vernacular being used by all involved when discussing Fast & Furious. Specifically, "Botched"; the botched investigation; the botched operation; botched attempt to track firearms that were permitted to "walk" into Mexico. There was nothing "botched" about this whole thing. We must stress the true purpose of Fast & Furious. It was a U.S.-run criminal conspiracy pursued for the ultimate purpose of dismantling the Bill of Rights! The mainstream media are incorrectly reporting it as a "failed sting operation." In reality, Operation Fast and Furious was a huge success. It achieved its stated goal...

    Two men pleaded guilty to buying guns that were destined to be smuggled into Mexico, the first convictions in the federal government's botched Operation Fast and Furious. The men were so-called "straw buyers" who acknowledged purchasing guns that they knew were headed to Mexican drug gangs. The goal of the federal government's investigation was to catch weapons-trafficking kingpins, but firearms agents lost track of many weapons they were trying to trace to smuggling ringleaders, and some guns ended up at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S. Jacob Wayne Chambers and Jacob Anthony Montelongo each pleaded guilty in federal court...

    A British daredevil's vacation bungee jump went horribly wrong when his cord came loose and he hit the water at 80 miles an hour — but miraculously, he survived. Rishi Baveja, 21, told "FOX & Friends" Wednesday that he didn't even know the rope around his ankles had slipped off during his videotaped 165-foot leap in Thailand until the very end. "I didn't know anything was wrong until I hit the water," he said by phone from his home in the U.K.

    For Obama, An Unsuccessful Campaign By PETER BAKER October 2, 2009 COPENHAGEN — President Obama not only failed to bring home the gold, he could not even muster the silver or bronze. A dramatic 20-hour mission across the ocean to persuade the International Olympic Committee to give the 2016 Summer Games to Chicago proved such a miscalculation that his adopted hometown finished fourth of four candidate cities. Rarely has a president put his credibility on the line on the world stage in such a personal way and been slapped down so sharply in real time. While Chicago may have lost...

    Bay State Republicans are circling like vultures around a politically weakened John Kerry, vowing to field a strong challenger that may be able to capitalize on his fractured image and snatch his coveted U.S. Senate seat. One potential GOP challenger, state Sen. Scott Brown, said last night that he "would consider" a run against Kerry in 2008 and that the senator is ripe for the picking. "I think he'll get a challenge this time. I don't think he'll get a free ride," Brown (R-Wrentham) said. "His handling of himself during this Iraq situation has been outrageous. He needs to be...

    John F. Kerry’s dead-last ranking in a poll of 2008 White House contenders has pundits saying he’s down for the count, but the beleaguered senator’s camp insists he’s still in the fight - and that’s no joke. The Quinnipiac University popularity rankings - based on interviews with 1,600 voters - come as Kerry struggles to recover from his “botched” attempt at humor when he made a reference to soldiers serving in Iraq. Kerry ranked 20th out of 20 politicians, lagging far behind a slew of Democrats expected to seek the party’s 2008 nomination. Tops among Democrats was Sen. Barack Obama...

    In the wake of the Democratic congressional victories, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. -- perhaps more than any other Democrat -- heaved a sigh of relief. Speaking to students at California's Pasadena City College on Oct. 30, 2006, the former presidential candidate said, "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." As for the number of those offended, let us count the ways. A straightforward reading of his remarks makes...

But the recent "botched joke" of Senator John Kerry may deserve an even deeper inspection, especially in light of the fact that this was the opposition party’s top choice to replace the President two short years ago.

The Democrats are an amazingly incompetent group of politicians, always presenting to the American people the most liberal and extreme members who do not represent mainstream American values. The latest gaffe involves idiotic U.S. Senator John Kerry (D-MA) who supposedly misspoke at a rally in California and instead of criticizing the President of the United...

Two years ago, Lane allegedly "dog-napped" a neighbor's registered golden Labrador retriever and paid a veterinarian to neuter it. Lane then dropped the Lab off in the night at a county animal shelter. Lane, 45, was charged with criminal mischief, a class A misdemeanor, in June 2004, but had never appeared in court. She was arrested Tuesday on the outstanding warrant and spent...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A son of the controversial late leader of a black Muslim group here was shot and killed in what police described as a botched carjacking. Antar Bey, 24, was shot at an Oakland gas station Tuesday. Bey was the appointed successor to Yusuf Bey, a leader in the Bay area's Muslim community who died of colon cancer in 2003. The 67-year-old was best known as the founder of Your Black Muslim Bakery, famed for its bean and carrot pies and known as having an open door to struggling families. But Yusuf Bey's reputation took a hit...

    San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales said Thursday that he has demanded City Manager Del Borgsdorf explain what he and others in his office knew of concerns about favoritism in a multimillion-dollar technology contract after an independent investigator this week concluded all of Borgsdorf's aides knew and the city manager himself ``more likely than not'' also had been briefed. Borgsdorf for months has denied that he or any member of his staff had been warned of serious legal problems with an $8 million contract to install Cisco Systems equipment in the new City Hall. However, an independent investigator said Tuesday that...

"I have no intention of doing this again to animals or humans," Douglas Lenhart, 49, told Allegheny County Judge John Zottola on Monday. "I'm completely out of this. Completely done." Zottola sentenced Lenhart to jail time he had already served and will let him serve his probation in Kansas City, Kan., where he now lives. In July, Lenhart acknowledged trying to castrate Catherine Watson, 46. Watson was born with nonfunctioning male genitals and has lived as a woman since...

City Manager Del Borgsdorf delivered his long-awaited report about what went wrong and who was responsible for the scandal to the city council Tuesday. In it, he told city leaders that the need to seek new bids for the building's $8 million computer and phone network will necessitate a complicated and expensive set of fixes. Rather than idle its construction crews,...
