    Council, Governor Commute Sentence CONCORD, N.H. -- A man convicted of criminal threatening after he was accused of waving a gun at a woman on his property was freed from jail Wednesday. Ward Bird grabbed his family in a bear hug Wednesday night following his release from the Carroll County Jail. "I'm humbled, and thank you very much; we will talk more in the future. Right now I want to be with my family," Bird said. The Moultonborough man spent 77 days behind bars on a 2006 felony criminal threatening conviction, which his supporters said was unjust. The Executive Council...

    The time for big talk is over. I'll admit that this is a small step, but it is the first step that gets inertia going. I have to believe this may be our chance to start a movement that takes back our country, and I fear that it may be too late to start soon.

    NRA.ORG ^ | Wayne LaPierre
    3/31/2009 With brains like Phil Mendelson on the city council, it's no wonder D.C. acts like a third-world country. His March 22 Washington Post column slams congressmen who want to make D.C. a voting member if it will honor the Second Amendment. Mendelson thinks D.C. residents deserve a vote in Congress, but not a firearm in their homes. Why? You're not going to believe this: because giving citizens the right to protect themselves would "disadvantage the right of individuals to be protected by the police ..." I'll repeat that, so you can fully appreciate the lunacy that passes for policy...

  • Dollar Pares Losses vs Euro on Geithner Clarification (Geithner open to SDR replacing Dollar)

    Reuters ^ | 3/25/2009 | Reuters
    The U.S. dollar slid against the euro Wednesday after U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner expressed openness to expanded use of an IMF currency basket even as he said the greenback would remain the world's reserve currency for a long time. Investors initially interpreted his remarks as negative for the dollar, sending it to a session low against the euro. China's central bank governor said earlier this month said the world should consider the special drawing right (SDR), a basket of dollars, euros, sterling and yen, as a super-sovereign reserve currency. Geithner, responding to a question at a Council of Foreign...

    Some pundits ask whether America is ready for Obama. The much more important question is whether Obama is ready for America and even more important is whether black people can afford Obama. Let's look at it in the context of a historical tidbit. In 1947, Jackie Robinson, signing a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers, broke the color barrier in major league baseball. He encountered open racist taunts and slurs from fans, opposing team players and even some players on his own team. Despite that, his first year batting average was .297. He led the National League in stolen bases and...

    I received the "Critical Issues survey" from the RNC Victory Caucus in an envelope marked "John McCain" in the return address area. Inside the survey are check boxes near each of the critical issues where the RNC would like to know my stand. The issues range from privatizing Social Security, National Health Care, simplifying the tax code, ehe Economy, and quite a few other subjects. What was noticeably missing from the questions was the request for my view on immigration and amnesty. To be fair, there is a field marked immigration, but it only allows me to choose which party...

The brief minute-long film, which was shown on Al-Alam television’s evening news bulletin, showed wobbly aerial footage of an aircraft carrier stacked with war planes as it sailed.

    In Tuesday's Times, the paper detailed a leaked working paper from the office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction. The draft report was highly critical of the U.S.-led reconstruction of Iraq, deeming the effort a failure in large part. Though incomplete, illegally leaked and intended as an internal document for discussion, The Times chose to run the story. Once again, The New York Times, not the Bush administration, has broken the law protecting our nation's security, violating U.S. Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 37, Section 798, pertaining to the illegal release of national-security information.

    So much for the popularly peddled view that anti-Americanism in the Muslim world is so pervasive and deep-rooted it might take generations to alter. A new poll from Pakistan, a critical front-line in the war on terror, paints a very different picture--by revealing a sea-change in public opinion in recent months. Long a stronghold for Islamic extremists and the world's second-most populous Muslim nation, Pakistanis now hold a more favorable opinion of the U.S. than at any time since 9/11, while support for al Qaeda in its home base has dropped to its lowest level since then. The direct cause...
