    WASHINGTON DC (KDKA) Frustration seems to be more common in Washington than the ability to reach a bipartisan deal across party lines. Pennsylvanias senior senator, a Democrat, knows who he blames. The Tea Party caused this shutdown, and if we allow it to continue, were going to have a Tea Party default and thats not good for anyone, says Sen. Bob Casey. Sen. Casey says ultraconservatives in the House are so fixated on repealing or changing Obamacare that they are willing to risk the nations economic health.

    With all the attention focused on Ted Cruzs attempt to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution, some of the laws parade of horribles are momentarily out of view. Come October 1, those horribles will resume their onward march as the laws impact on subsidizing elective abortion will begin to become clearer. One area that deserves special scrutiny is the feature known as Multi-State Plans (MSPs). This provision of Obamacare represented a partial victory for progressive forces who favored a national, single-payer system. In its place they accepted a category of health-insurance plans managed by the Office of Personnel Management under...

    The preponderance of conservative attention this year has quite understandably been focused on realizing the categorical imperative to defeat Barack Obama. But also important is the defeat of the presidents enablers in the United States Senate, that enough votes might be secured there to undo some of the damage they, together, have done. An opportunity to unseat one such enabler has emerged in an unlikely place Pennsylvania where first-term incumbent Bob Casey now finds himself in a fight he did not expect. Pennsylvania has long been in danger of becoming a vestigial swing state, blushing red before settling...

Anthony was acquitted last year of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. After Caylee disappeared in the summer of 2008, Anthony told investigators that a baby sitter named Zenaida Gonzalez had kidnapped the toddler. A woman with that name sued Anthony, claiming her...

    Submission to Islam has been institutionalized by our national security apparatus. The official handling of the Fort Hood massacre proves the case. On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist who had previously served at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, shot 45 of his fellow soldiers at the deployment center at Fort Hood in Texas, killing thirteen. It was the most deadly shooting attack ever on an American military base. Maj. Hasan, who had been scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan, was charged with murder and attempted murder, but not terrorism. His court-martial will begin next month....

But Russell Huekler, one of five alternate jurors who were present for all the testimony and were sequestered with the 12 other jurors, said he would have given the same verdict and is stunned by the public anger.

I am not at home and forgot to forward my pinglist to my friend's house, so I've had to check some older threads and reconstruct as many names as possible. If I missed you I'm sorry. I probably won't be able to post much on this thread, but after I am home I will keep my ear to the television/radio for the jury decision, and will ping again when I hear so we can have...

    Casey Anthony broke down in tears in an Orlando courtroom today as jurors heard how her daughter's bones had been chewed on by wild animals. The murder trial resumed after Anthony was taken ill yesterday when pictures of her dead daughter Caylee's skull were shown to the court. Jurors were shown photos of the tattered and torn shorts and shirt Caylee was wearing when she died. Later, as they viewed pictures of Caylee's bones, Anthony looked down, covering her mouth with her fist. As the gruesome details emerged Anthony started shaking and had to be comforted by defence attorney Dorothy...

    Casey Anthony's murder trial was cut short today when she was taken ill after pictures of her dead daughter's skull were shown. Anthony cried and looked away as graphic photos of her two-year-old daughter Caylee's remains were shown to the jury at the trial in Orlando. Judge Belvin Perry had warned anyone who might become queasy to leave the courtroom before the images were displayed. Shortly after the images were shown he sent the jury home for the day, asking them not to speculate about why court was ending early. Earlier in the day Anthony's brother, Lee, testified his sister...

    After seven years as chief legal counsel at health giant UPMC, former federal judge Robert J. Cindrich had one important piece of business to finish. One of his pet projects involved an ambitious proposal to create a one-of-a-kind vaccine factory in Western Pennsylvania that could create 1,000 jobs. Cindrich, who wanted to step down from his demanding job, felt an obligation to stay until he wrapped up the vaccine project. "I want to finish this," said Cindrich, 67, who served as a judge in the U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh for 10 years. "Just to hand it over without any...

    From one of my sources higher up in state and national Democratic circles, the word is that Joe Sestak, who just barely lost against Pat Toomey in the US Senate race, will be challenging Bob Casey in 2012. Sestak successfully knocked off Senator Arlen Spector in a primary challenge this past year, hitting him from the left. Presumably, since Casey is often billed as a conservative Democrat (but is really more of a moderate), Sestak will be doing the same thing in 2012. He likely thinks he can do it again. Currently, Sestak is on a 67 county Thank You...

    You would think that with Pennsylvanias Republican roots, which have run especially deep over the last several decades, freshman Democratic senator Bob Casey would be vulnerable in 2012. You would be wrong, and the reason is simple civics. Incumbents dont lose unless theyre challenged by viable, first-tier candidates, as the Senate elections in Nevada and Alaska proved. And, as of now, there are none to challenge Casey. Whether that changes in the next year is anyones guess, but the mere fact that the GOP finds itself in this position speaks volumes about how it builds its bench. Translation: it doesnt....

    "Exclusively men and primarily in their early 20s, these are young servicemen who are not guilty of the rape and killing of innocent women and children, as commonly is the public misperception (thanks to the late John Murtha). Instead, they are troops who have been charged with wrongdoing on the battlefield, in the heat of battle against an enemy with no uniform or identifying markers."

    Big Labor is pouring money into two Democratic U.S. Senate races, attempting to secure a union pension bailout during a lame duck session of Congress. As previously reported on HUMAN EVENTS, new Federal Accounting Standards Board rules set to take effect on Dec. 15 threaten to shake up unions and the businesses entangled in multi-employer union pension plans that have been mismanaged and underfunded well before the 2008 financial upheaval. The economic downturn has only exacerbated the problem. Recent reports show hundreds of thousands of dollars in union cash pouring into races for Democratic Senate candidates Michael Bennet and Joe...
