  • Baby drama! CNN star Jeffrey Toobin offered Casey Greenfield money for abortion: sources

    Sunday could be a bittersweet first Mother's Day for Casey Greenfield. Greenfield is a pretty, ginger-haired, Yale-educated lawyer and writer who last March gave birth to a love child. The baby's father is married CNN star and best-selling New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin. (Casey's father is esteemed political pundit Jeff Greenfield.) Ever since we broke the news of her pregnancy, Casey has remained silent about the baby drama. But now some of her friends are fed up with what they claim is less-than-gallant behavior on Toobin's part. Greenfield, now 36, was in her 20s when she fell for Toobin, now...

    "...The conspirators were in the Army’s 902nd Military Intelligence Group’s MOS 09L program (“Lima Nine”), E Company, 187th Ordnance Battalion. Lima Nine was started because of the Army’s desperate lack of linguists speaking Pashto, Dari or Arabic. To attract such recruits, military intelligence promises foreigners that if they join the Army as a translator they will get U.S. citizenship and a top security clearance. Candidates from Afghanistan and Iraq, including the Jackson Five, speak such poor English the Army puts them in Lima Nine and gives them English lessons, so they will have some hope of passing basic training.

    I pretty much said what I had to say about the Fort Hood massacre in the first couple of weeks, because it was perfectly obvious within about 48 hours that 14 people (including an unborn child) had died so that "diversity" might live. As is the way, the official version is taking longer to catch up to what anyone not marinated in brain-eating PC mush could see from the get-go. The Boston Globe has a story on a new army report, unfortunately completed too late for last month's whitewash: An obvious “problem child’’ spouting extremist views, Hasan made numerous statements...

    Washington (CNN) -- Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey said Tuesday that he has "serious concerns" over the impact of a repeal of the military's controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding gay and lesbian service members. "I do have serious concerns about the impact of the repeal of the law on ... a force that's fully engaged in two wars and has been at war for eight and a half years," he told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He agreed, however, that it would be fair to characterize his opinion as not being "strongly" for or...

    Pennsylvania soon may scrape the bottom of the federal pork barrel. The Feb. 8 death of U.S. Rep. Jack Murtha was "a major blow" to federal funding in the state, according to Jeff Brauer, a political science professor at Keystone College. The Johnstown Democrat, in Congress since 1974, held considerable clout as chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Subcommittee. Brauer foresees another blow when Ed Rendell ends eight years as governor this year. The Philadelphia Democrat's influential national connections also have brought federal money into the state. And if U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, another Philadelphia Democrat, survives a May primary...

    Five soldiers have been arrested on charges of trying to poison the food supply at South Carolina's Fort Jackson. Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army's Criminal Investigation Division, says the ongoing investigation began 2 months ago, leading to the arrests. The 5, detained in December, were part of an Arabic translation program called "09 Lima" and are all reportedly Muslims. Grey says the Army is taking the allegations, "extremely seriously," adding at this time, "there is no credible information to support the allegations."

    WASHINGTON -- The backing of the White House, promised after his party switch, has aided Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter's re-election campaign in several ways. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden have both made fundraising appearances in Pennsylvania for Mr. Specter, and the campaign has at its disposal the legions of Organizing for America, the grass-roots arm of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Specter also has been able to parade Cabinet secretaries around the state. In recent months, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan both have examined their operations and met...

    Isn’t it ironic that the more the nation turns “pro-life” and an ever-increasing majority recognizes how bad the monstrous health care plan is the more certain ‘conservative’ or ‘pro-life’ Democrats are caving in on these very issues? These are times that try men’s souls apparently. What sort of moral foundation of principles have you built for yourself when you so loudly declare something about your core beliefs and then so easily betray them exactly when support is building among the people you serve?!? Such historic crossroads as we face now certainly provide a test of all that. Senator Nelson from...

    Senator Bob Casey, who is still awaiting his much needed spine implentation surgery, is saying he's more pro-life than you. Yup. He went there. Taking a cue from Patrick Kennedy who accused the Church of not being pro-life because it didn't want federal funding of abortion, Casey took his turn at bat. In an interview with Greta Van Susteren Senator Bob Casey called out pro-life conservatives for...well not being as pro-life as he is: Casey: After all, if you really say you're pro-life, you should want to cover 31 million Americans and provide all kinds of preventative services that will...

    December 21, 2009, 3:45 p.m. Can Stupak Save the Democrats?By the Editors Pregnancy is not a disease. Hence abortion, in the vast majority of cases, is not health care. Contemporary liberalism is ideologically committed to denying this truth. Fifty-one percent of Americans contacted in a recent poll said that private health insurance should not cover abortion. One hundred percent of Senate Democrats just voted for legislation that, in the process of remaking American health care, creates new subsidies for health policies that do cover it. If this bill passes, abortion will become a cheaper option for millions of women....

    Pro-Life Groups: Casey's Abortion-Health Care Compromise No Good Washington, DC -- Pro-life organizations say the so-called "compromise" that Sen. Bob Casey presented late Wednesday to Sen. Ben Nelson to get him to vote for the pro-abortion government-run health care bill is no good. The National Right to Life Committee and Family Research Council say the language keeps abortion funding in the bill.

    Abortion opponents are urging local Catholic bishops to use the power of Communion to influence the national health care debate by withholding the sacrament from politicians who favor federal dollars for abortion. Randall Terry led five protesters Friday in front of Sen. Robert Casey's office, Downtown, and St. Paul's Cathedral in Oakland. He is founder of Insurrecta Nex, Latin for "revolt against killing," a Washington group opposed to abortion. Casey is a Catholic. "Part of what we're doing on this tour is calling on the bishops to obey the teachings of the church and to enforce them," Terry said. "This...

    WASHINGTON (Nov. 9, 2009) -- The Army has worked hard on developing programs to maintain the psychological health of the service, but much more needs to be done, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George W. Casey Jr. said yesterday. "One of the things as we looked at the challenges facing the Army was that we felt we were a little light on the preventive measures -- in giving Soldiers the skills that they need to prevent mental problems and suicides," he said. "So we instituted in October a program called Comprehensive Soldier Fitness, which is a long-term development program designed...

    FORT HOOD — One of the most sensational allegations stemming from last week's shooting spree at Fort Hood was a claim that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu akbar!” before firing into scores of soldiers at a large post processing center. A day after Army chief of staff Gen. George W. Casey Jr. expressed concern over potential anti-Muslim reaction in the wake of the mass shooting, Fort Hood appeared to distance itself from the controversy. A spokesman for the post, asked to clarify comments made last week by Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the Fort Hood commander, who suggested that Hasan...

    Backlash fever is sweeping the nation: thirteen Americans are dead and thirty-eight wounded in a jihad attack at Fort Hood, and our government’s primary concern -- from the Chief of Staff of the Army to the Islamic pressure groups such as CAIR -- are focused entirely on ensuring that Muslims in the United States are not being victimized by a “backlash.” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared: “We object to, and do not believe, that anti-Muslim sentiment should emanate from this. This was an individual who does not represent the Muslim faith.” She said that DHS was taking steps to...

    More PC at work here. This is why my tagline says: political correctness KILLS. Once again Colonel Peters is out ahead of everyone on this story and shows we why we have him as a frequent guest. You heard him here first, call Major Hasan’s shooting an act of terrorism. Now he says, not only does he believe political correctness led to the massacre at Fort Hood … but the investigation should be looking into Hasan’s finances. Asks Peters, why was he living in such poverty when he was living on an officer’s salary and benefits? Good question but will...
