  • McCain Punches Back At Obama: On Benghazi, You’re Incompetent Or Corrupt

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 14, 2012 | 3:43 pm
    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., responded to President Obama’s challenge that he “go after me” over the Benghazi attack by declaring him either incompetent or corrupt and suggesting he is not taking the attack seriously. “This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people,” McCain said on the Senate floor today. “I speak as a friend of Christopher Stevens, I speak as a person who knows something about warfare, I speak as something of an authority — that this attack could have...

    Mediaite ^ | 8/5/11 | Colby Hall
    In a speech delivered just earlier today President Obama warned that without serious compromise by both Democrats and Republicans, the U.S. will lose its top-credit rating it if falls into a credit default. It was the second debt-crisis related speech that Obama has delivered today, and comes the day after the House GOP failed to pass a balanced budget bill because of lack of support from representatives viewed as sympathetic to the Tea Party movement. The president pointed out that the possibility of a downgrade are not great developments for either party, though some are suggesting that even if a...

    Both sides in the Egyptian “civil war” claim that their opponents are being aided by Israel and/or Jews. Egyptian State television broadcast a story Wednesday claiming that a suspicious "Israeli engineer" was caught near Suez and questioned in relation to the riots. Meanwhile a young woman was interviewed who claimed that American Jews taught her how to "bring down the government". Many people interviewed on state television have claimed that the entire uprising is being coordinated by Israel in order to "conquer all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates".

    washington times ^ | 7/13/10 | By Patrice Hill
    In a rare departure from this year's intense political posturing over the soaring budget deficit, House leaders of both parties recently signaled that they are prepared to tackle a leading long-term liability — Social Security — by raising the retirement age. Politicians often talk in generalities about cutting the deficit, but discussing specifics about how Congress may curb the growth of the biggest and most popular programs such as Social Security and defense is controversial and usually taboo in an election year.

    You cannot have it both ways! Every year in America, this “both ways” mentality gets worse and worse. Somewhere along the line Americans started thinking that we could have all of our rights and freedoms and have expedient justice and results at the same time. Well, I have to tell you: YOU CANNOT. There is a blend of the two that must be championed if we are going to continue being a successful country. The mortgage crisis of late is one of the great disasters caused by this “have it both ways” mentality. The government was constantly pressured by citizens...
  • A Question of Faith... or Tidiness? (Christian Burials to be oriented to Mecca)

    A multi-faith cemetery will have all its graves aligned with Mecca, despite Christian burials traditionally facing east. CHRIS BIRKLE finds out how Christians and Muslims feel about the controversial council decision In today's secular society you could be forgiven for not knowing which direction Christian graves face. Ancient tradition shows they should look east in anticipation of the second coming of Jesus Christ. But all headstones at the new £2.5m High Wood Cemetery in Bulwell will be plotted to face north-east, in line with Islamic faith. Muslims believe the dead look over their shoulder towards Mecca, towards the south-east

    In Dubai, everyone refers to their ruler, Emir Mohammed Bin Rashid al-Maktoum, as "MBR." Just to give you an idea of how he is into tourism not terrorism, here's a quick story. He has closed circuit television in his private office. And what are the cameras trained on? Immigration/passport control lines at the airport. If MBR sees the lines are getting too long, he picks up the phone and orders more personnel to reduce the lines. Again, his focus is tourism not terrorism. The US Navy docks its ships at Dubai more often than at any other non-US port in...
  • Can't wear both hats - Susan Kennedy

    SUSAN Kennedy, with her people skills and grasp of policy, can be a terrific chief of staff for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Or, with her strategic guile and experience, Kennedy can be a brilliant strategist for the governor's re-election campaign. But she can't do both jobs at the same time. Her current hybrid status -- drawing $131,000 as a full-time state employee as the governor's chief of staff, along with a reported $75,000 supplement to perform campaign work -- is ethically shaky on its face. This double-dipping arrangement is inviting a scandal when observers start connecting the dots, fairly or not,...

    Note: This article may seem pedantic, but it is aimed at those who are not “insiders” on the history of the Middle East.I keep hearing the phrase, “It’s their land,” regarding Palestinian claims to Israel. Terrorist groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad publicly assert that their aims are to reclaim every inch of Israel as part of a proposed Palestinian homeland. Unfortunately, these ownership claims are echoed by “activist” groups like the International Solidarity Movement and the Palestine Solidarity Movement, both with throngs of naïve followers on U.S. and European college campuses. The followers are too eager to take these...

    (AP) Having one type of diabetes is bad enough, but two? Doctors are seeing a new phenomenon dubbed double diabetes that makes it harder to diagnose and treat patients — especially children. The mix can strike at any age, and comes in various forms: Children who depend on insulin injections because of Type 1 diabetes gain weight and then get the Type 2 form in which their bodies become insulin resistant, for example. Or someone with classic Type 2 symptoms isn't responding to therapy, and tests reveal they also are developing the insulin-dependent form of the disease. Or they may...

    WASHINGTON - Both political parties are to blame for the impasse on confirming President Bush (news - web sites)'s judicial nominees, says Arlen Specter, Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee (news - web sites). "No one wants to back down and no one wants to lose face," Specter said Thursday in his first interview with Washington reporters since disclosing he has Hodgkin's disease. Specter will initiate this year's confirmation battles between Bush and the Democrats by holding hearings on the nominations of former Interior Department Solicitor William Myers on Tuesday, a nominee who was blocked last year, and U.S....

    "We now know that he (Al Gore) would have won Florida," proclaimed Ronald Prescott Reagan, son of the late President Ronald Wilson Reagan. Ron made this incredible declaration during MSNBC"s Chris Matthews' show, as they reported about former Vice President Al Gore's speech at the Democratic National Convention. When asked by Matthews how does he know this, Ron remarked that there was a "consortium" of newspapers who counted the votes in Florida and determined that Gore would have won. Matthews incredibly confirmed this by saying Gore would have won the election if he requested a statewide vote recount in Florida....

    Editor's note: Readers may also be interested in Iran: The Invisible Revolution. During the U.S. presidential campaign, debate over Iran policy received unprecedented attention. The reasons are multifold. With Iran on the verge of developing both nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capability, Washington policymakers can no longer ignore the Iranian threat, especially when confidants of Supreme Leader Ali Khomenei lead televised chants of "American will be annihilated," as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati did last June. American concern over a nuclear Iran is multifold. The danger is not necessarily that Iran would conduct a nuclear first strike, although former president Ali Akbar...

    Critics: Dean-backed tax-cut program is like Bush's By David Gram The Associated Press MONTPELIER -- Democratic presidential contender Howard Dean criticizes President Bush for giving unneeded tax breaks, but as Vermont governor, he supported a program critics say did much the same for corporations. The Vermont Economic Progress Council, which Dean signed into law in 1998 to provide tax credits to businesses promising to expand, has approved more than $80 million in such credits, according to a report by the state auditor. Companies had claimed about $25 million of those credits by the end of the 2001 tax year. Both...

If confirmed by other researchers, the findings could have huge implications for evolutionary biology and biochemistry.

It asserts the principle that it can occur in humans. It could have significant implications for the study of human evolution and the migrations of...
