    Voters across Florida heard a mysterious robo call over the weekend that seemed to aimed at attacking likely Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist. "It had someone who sounded like Charlie Crist, saying, '… I stand for traditional marriage, I'm prolife, I'm against amnesty for illegal immigrants,'" said one caller on our voice mail. "That seemed clearly like fraud." Listen to the call:

    U.S. President Barack Obama told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that Russia's actions in Ukraine were not conducive to a diplomatic solution of the crisis in that country, and the White House warned that Moscow would suffer further costs for its behavior. Obama spoke to Putin at the Russians' request, a senior administration official said, describing the call as "frank and direct," a diplomatic construction that usually means tense. "The president made clear that the diplomatic path was open and our preferred way ahead, but that Russia's actions are neither consistent with or conducive to that," the official said....

    President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of 200,000 progressive volunteers on Monday evening that ´more than 100 million Americans´ – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act. A weary-sounding Obama made the gaffe during a call hosted by Organizing For Action, the nonprofit successor to his campaign organization Obama For America. ´I just wanted to take a few minutes to speak to everybody because you guys are the ones who are in the trenches, day-in, day-out,´ Obama said, complaining of ´misinformation´ that has circulated

    TEHRAN: Iran's top leader said on Saturday that some aspects of Hassan Rouhani's trip to New York last month were "not appropriate," but reiterated his crucial support for the president's policy of outreach to the West. The comments by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, summarized on Saturday on his website khamenei.ir, came after hardliners criticized a 15-minute phone conversation between Rouhani and US President Barack Obama, a gesture aimed at ending three decades of estrangement between the two countries.

As his time in the U.S. lengthened, the more he decided he wanted to stay.

He noted the need to counter the current "endemic anti-Catholicism" in the country. "We cannot be passive," the archbishop said. "The church calls us to be in the forefront of the...

They also questioned whether the quickly assembled mission was necessary to rescue a band of Army Rangers reportedly under fire from Taliban militants. “I squarely blame whoever planned and authorized the mission for the deaths,” said a Special Forces soldier who served in Afghanistan. “It was simply uncalled for unless Rangers were...

    Today Rush Limbaugh wanted to make it perfectly clear that anyone thinking political rhetoric in the 1980’s was more civil than it is today doesn’t remember the Reagan era very well. Rush claimed the “hatred for Ronald Reagan was universal in the Democrat party and throughout the media” and that the discourse was just as vitriolic with Reagan being directly blamed for the spread of AIDS, homelessness and every other bad thing imaginable. Why Rush discussed this history was to justify his skepticism about the left’s “call for civility” as nothing more than censorship.

But despite the title of the program, don’t use those partisan labels around Huffington. On the Dec. 24 broadcast of KCRW’s “Left, Right & Center,” Huffington complained that the use of the political terms “left,” “right” or “left-wing” is preventing policymakers from solving “problems” because of the connotation tied to each of them. “Well, I actually feel that it would make a huge difference...

But behind one door knob, a local Cub Scout troop solicited a pretty special donor, former president George W. Bush. For 10,000 local kids, scouting for food is door to door, and it's neighbor to neighbor. But for the boys of Troop 19, their newest neighbor is guarded by the police and the Secret Service.

  • Bullet Serialization Threat in Georgia

    12/15/2008 9:47:06 AM PST · by epow · 96 replies · 2,924+ views

NSSF is encouraging all sportsmen,...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 26, 2008 – Wounded warriors who call into the Marine Wounded Warrior Call Center near Quantico, Va., find truth in the motto, “once a Marine, always a Marine.” That’s because their calls are answered by people like Alfredo Soto, who fondly remembers the camaraderie he experienced during his service in the Marine Corps. “We were always being told to look out for and take care of your buddy,” Soto, 36, said. He is one of several veterans and military family members who work the phones at the call center in Dumfries, Va. “I know I’m out of...

The hearing was postponed at the request of her defense attorney. "He asked for a continuance due to the amount of discovery in this case," said prosecutor Frederick Stein. "I did not object to...
