  • Records show firm with Beshear ties won last-day contract

    02/28/2016 10:19:11 PM PST · by Republican Wildcat · 7 replies
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Records have revealed that on its last day in office, Kentucky's Steve Beshear administration awarded a no-bid contract of about $3 million to a technology company that retains the husband of one of Beshear's top officials as a consultant and employs one of Beshear's former officials as a lobbyist. Citing records it obtained under the Kentucky Open Records Act, The Courier-Journal reports that on Dec. 7 the administration awarded a contract to SAS Institute of Cary, North Carolina to extend work that SAS was doing in analyzing data to detect fraud in billings made to Medicaid...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul endorsed Republican Greg Brannon for North Carolina’s marque U.S. Senate race, giving the Cary physician’s low-profile campaign a huge boost. “I enthusiastically endorse Greg Brannon for U.S. Senate because he’s a true constitutional conservative who will join me in fighting against business as usual in Washington,” Paul said in a statement Wednesday morning released by Brannon’s campaign. “Americans are looking for leaders who will honor their oath of office by fighting to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution and Greg is the clear choice for conservatives in North Carolina.”

    William Bowden painted “Screwed by the Town of Cary” on his house after a road-widening project (allegedly) directed runoff onto his property, damaging his North Carolina home. Within hours, zoning officials paid him a visit, ordering him to remove the sign or pay fines of up to $500 for each day of noncompliance.

    Muslim women head to a Cary pool as another cultural barrier falls Salman Sheikh was organizing a swim class for his two sons last summer when fellow Muslim parents approached him about starting a class for girls. Sheikh told them he would ask the Curran Aquatic Center in Cary whether it could accommodate a group of Muslims who preferred a women-only pool. Yes, of course, the leaders of the aquatic center said, and showed him a 15-yard pool that could be rented for $170 an hour.

    (AgapePress) - Last week, The Raleigh News & Observer reported that Rev. Stephen Davey, a conservative evangelical pastor and founder of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, NC, believes the church shouldn't engage in political action. "The mission, energy and investment of the church is not to clean up the evils of society," says Davey. "The mission of the church is to evangelize society." Davey's position is similar to that of renowned Bible teacher, John MacArthur, who claims in his book, Why Government Can't Save You, that God has not commissioned His people to declare war on their culture, but instead...

    CARY, N.C. - The joke around here is that this town's name is really an acronym for ''Containment Area for Relocated Yankees.'' As far as Vernon Yates is concerned, they haven't been contained well enough. Nearly surrounded by pricey subdivisions, the cinderblock Yates Grocery and Farm Supply sells neither anymore. As if things weren't bad enough, style maven Martha Stewart has chosen this Raleigh suburb to build a signature neighborhood of houses designed after her homes in Maine and New York.

    Toxicology tests are being done on the bodies of three pit bulls shot after they mauled two children and four adults to determine if the dogs ingested marijuana found inside their owner's home, authorities said Tuesday. The dogs' owner, Scott Sword, 41, of the 6600 block of Hawthorne Drive near Cary, has been charged with felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor production of marijuana plants, said McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren. On Nov. 5 police handling the dog attack found five harvested marijuana plants growing in Sword's back-yard garden and more than 30 grams of marijuana in his home,Nygren said....

    Snerdley looked it up. He found it. April 5th, 1992, this is during the campaign, Bill Clinton said, "And I will appoint judges to the Supreme Court who believe in the constitutional right to privacy, including the right to choose." So there Clinton did establish his litmus test. So it's okay for the libs to say, "We're going to get a pro-choice nominee. They're going to be pro-Roe vs. Wade," but somehow Republicans can't say this. Republican nominees say it. Republican presidents can't say it. "Weeeell, I have never talked to our nominee about that! You know, I don't have...

"For the cooped-up children of bomb-weary Baghdad, referendum day was a winner, no matter what the final outcome. A security ban on private vehicles, invoked to keep would-be bombers from reaching targets, had a blissful side effect: The boys and girls of Baghdad took back the streets for a day," and it goes on and on and on to describe what a pleasant day the Election Day was in Iraq.

    Doubts are mounting here about the authenticity of a letter from Al Qaeda's deputy chief to the terror organization's field commander in Iraq. The letter was made public October 11 by President Bush's new director of national intelligence, John Negroponte, in a press release that said, "The United States Government has the highest confidence in the letter's authenticity." If the letter were to be proven a forgery, it would be a blow to the credibility of an office that was created last year at the urging of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States following the intelligence...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Iraq's constitution seemed headed toward passage Sunday despite strong opposition from Sunni Arabs, who turned out in surprisingly high numbers in an effort to stop it. The apparent victory was muted, though, by the prospect that the result might divide the country further. Rejection seemed more unlikely as vote-counting continued across the country. In one key result, Ninevah, one of three crucial northern and central provinces that Sunni Arab opponents pushed hard to swing their way, appeared to have voted "yes" by a considerable margin. In London, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice predicted the charter was likely...

    I love being a conservative. We believe in individual liberty, limited government, capitalism, the rule of law, faith, a color-blind society and national security. We support school choice, enterprise zones, tax cuts, welfare reform, political speech, homeowner rights and the war on terrorism. And at our core we embrace and celebrate the most magnificent governing document ever ratified by any nation -- the U.S. Constitution. Along with the Declaration of Independence, our God-given natural right to be free, it is the foundation on which our government is built and has enabled us to flourish as a people.

    BAGHDAD - Iraq’s deeply divided Shias, Sunnis and Kurds voted under heavy guard on Saturday to decide the fate of a new constitution aimed at establishing democracy after more than two decades of Saddam Hussein’s repressive rule. A day that US and Iraqi leaders feared could turn bloody turned out to be the most peaceful in months. Insurgents attacked five of Baghdad’s 1,200 polling stations with shootings and bombs, wounding seven voters. But the only deaths were those of three Iraqi soldiers in a roadside bomb far from a polling site, and there were no major attacks reported as US...

    "How much money did you receive from ExxonMobil in 2005?" When energy expert Indur Goklany gave a National Press Club briefing about his recent paper, "Living With Global Warming," he probably expected inquiries about his findings and research. But that's the accusation he was hit with during the Q&A from David Tuft, an official of the Natural Resources Defense Council. "We know you received $315,000 [from Exxon] through 2004; we're wondering what it is in 2005." The National Center for Policy Analysis, which published Goklany's research, did receive funding from ExxonMobil, but Goklany rightly responded that he received no Exxon...

    Liberally-biased press ignores Democratic blunders October 12th, 2005 Dan Hemp, regular columnist Over the past weeks, the media’s judgment of what stories deserve front page news coverage has been controversial to say the least. One such story takes place in Austin, Texas. The district attorney for that area, a hopelessly partisan Democrat named Ronnie Earle, indicted House Majority Leader Tom Delay for conspiring to break Texas election laws with little or no evidence to make his case. Once he realized that he had no chance in court, he re-indicted Delay with the new and more serious charge of money laundering....

    The grand jury hearing testimony from Rove, Judith Miller, and others may not be investigating what the press thinks. The Washington Post’s Walter Pincus and the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof have failed to respond to Joseph Wilson’s backtracking from their year earlier interview-based stories about how Wilson had supposedly discovered the Administration had relied on a patently fake document to justify the war, and ignored his report warning them it was fake. This failure reveals their lack of concern for the public’s right to know the truth—that they’d been snookered into making these sensational charges. But Bob Somerby, editor...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who became internationally known for his campaign a year ago to legalize gay marriage, on Monday said he considered wireless Internet access a fundamental right of all citizens. Officials said 24 proposals had been turned into the city to deliver wireless Internet services, ranging from Web search company Google Inc., Cingular, the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier, to Internet service provider EarthLink. Newsom told a news conference that he was bracing for a battle with telephone and cable interests along with state and federal regulators who he said are looking to...

This swirling vortex of gas eventually condensed into planets and solar systems.Here...
