    The San Diego Reader ^ | April 5, 2012 | Walter Mencken
    SAN DIEGO — At the San Diego Petting Zoo, a North County brothel wherein both the rooms and the girls are decorated in wild animal themes, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar stroked a "cheetah," patted a "snake", and shared a platform with a "peacock." After that, he met with local sex tourism and adult business leaders to get some feedback on the Obama Administration's push to create jobs by growing American sex tourism. Salazar wants more foreign visitors to come to the Petting Zoo, as well as the rest of America's sexual playgrounds. He was in San Diego yesterday...

    VOA ^ | 02 June 2008 | Peter Clottey
    Zimbabwe’s main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has condemned as a slap in the face of democracy the arrest Sunday of opposition stalwart Arthur Mutambara. The police arrested Mutambara on charges of writing an article highly critical of incumbent President Robert Mugabe on the just ended March 29 elections which the opposition MDC claims it won with over 50 percent of the votes. The police however say Mutambara’s article is prejudicial to the state and also a contempt of court. But the MDC says the arrest is yet another attempt by the Mugabe regime to intimidate partisans of the...

    Middle East Media Research Institute ^ | 2/21/2006 | Arab-American psychologist Wafa Sultan
    Wafa Sultan: The clash we are witnessing around the world is not a clash of religions, or a clash of civilizations. It is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century. It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality. It is a clash between freedom and oppression, between democracy and dictatorship. It is a clash between human rights, on the one hand, and the violation of these rights,...

    Reliable and deadly accurate, it is the handgun of choice for the FBI, the DEA and the Secret Service. Gun guru Col. Jeff Cooper (retired) used to say, "The best gun for a gunfight is the one you have with you." Law enforcement and military officials couldn't agree more. And recently the Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) made the SIG SAUER P229 their "best gun" to have by awarding two pistol contracts to SIGARMS Inc. In September, SIGARMS was awarded a $4.2 million pistol contract from the Coast Guard. Just a month prior, SIGARMS had been...

    WASHINGTON : Presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry today announced he has offered Johnny Depp first refusal of the coveted VP spot in his Democratic bid for the White House. I first saw Johnny in that scissors movie, Kerry told reporters, and I’ve wanted to run with him ever since. A source close to the Kerry campaign stated that Kerry believes Depp’s charm, charisma and intense global popularity is just the thing needed to sway voter support of post-teen females, twenty-something housewives, every woman in middle-aged America and that ‘certain section of guys’ towards the Democratic ticket in November....

    Fact Sheet The August 6, 2001 Pdb · the August 6, 2001 Pdb Item Entitled "bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US" was prepared in response to questions asked by the President about the possibility of attacks by al-Qaida inside the United States. The PDB article did not warn of the 9-11 attacks. Although the PDB referred to the possibility of hijackings, it did not discuss the possible use of planes as weapons. The PDB was based largely on background information about past terrorist attacks conducted by al-Qaida and general threats from the late 1990s. The only recent information concerning...

    West Africa's Cash Crop: Weed What if a poor African country could grow a plant that would fetch healthy prices in the U.S? What if the plant could be grown on small farms, encouraging democracy in this poor African country by putting cash into the hands of its poorest and most powerless people? What if such a plant could reduce the poor African country's dependence on the U.S. for aid? Of course, the U.S. would cheer such a plant and the country that grows it. And President George Bush would be especially glad, since improving living standards in Africa...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. - What was to be a six-week deployment to snag drug smugglers off South America will likely become more than six months protecting military shipping in the Mediterranean for the Charleston-based Coast Guard cutter Dallas. "It's been eventful for us," the cutter's commander, Capt. Chris Colvin said by satellite phone from the ship on Friday. "So far we have not come under any hostile fire but it's been interesting." The 378-foot cutter has been operating with the U.S. Sixth Fleet in the eastern Mediterranean. Earlier, the Dallas provided escort for military supply ships moving through the Strait of...

    Terror fight trumps U.S. war on drugs Shift in priorities after Sept. 11 creates surveillance 'vacuum' WASHINGTON - Down in the warm waters off Central America, the drug war is a cat-and-mouse game that has gone on for decades. But since Sept. 11, the game has changed because the Coast Guard has been ordered back to American ports to guard the nation's borders from terrorism. And intelligence reports suggest that large shipments of drugs that would normally have been stopped in the eastern Pacific Ocean above Colombia are amassing just south of the U.S. border in Mexico. Coast Guard ...

    A BABY girl lived for 80 minutes after medical staff tried to abort her, Darwin Coroners Court heard yesterday. Baby J was alive when born at about five months after her mother underwent an induced procedure to cause a ermination, but died after receiving no medical treatment, the court heard. Counsel assisting the coroner, Peter Barr, told the court Baby J showed clear signs of life when she was checked by a nurse after delivery at Darwin Private Hospital on July 14 last year. "She cried, she moved, she was breathing independently and she had an obvious heartbeat." But ...
