    The Obama Administration plans to bypass Congress to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. According to Fox News, a top White House economic official warned Tuesday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will not wait for Congress to pass legislation on climate change. The official said that if Congress does not take action, "the EPA is going to have to regulate in this area. And it is not going to be able to regulate in a market-based way, so it's going to have to regulate in a command-and-control way." He explained that legislation would provide compensation for small businesses hit hard by new...

    The submarine-based Bulava (Mace) missile has been billed as Russia's newest technological breakthrough to support its nuclear deterrent, but the repeated test failures are an embarrassment for the Kremlin. The missile failed in its 13th test on Wednesday morning, Russia's leading economic dailies Vedomosti and Kommersant reported on Thursday, quoting sources in the military-industrial complex. Hours later, the Defense Ministry admitted the failure, saying the launch had been made by the Dmitry Donskoi nuclear submarine from a submerged position in the White Sea. "It has been established ... that the missile's first two stages worked as normal, but there was...

Jennings ran an outfit called Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) from its inception in 1995 until last year. During that time, as Jim Hoft at Big Government has detailed, GLSEN offered sex education seminars to young teenagers within the framework of public education that went way, way beyond explanations of human biology and disease transmission.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there was "growing support" across the world for such a levy and that other EU nations were supportive of Britain's plans for a one-off tax of 50 percent for all bonuses of more than more than 25,000 pounds ($40,800.) France says it will follow suit -- and called on others to join them. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said,...

For a long time, though, I have pondered the significance of the publican's prayer, the simple prayer Jesus recommends by contrast with the self-righteous conceit of the scrupulous Pharisee (Luke 18:9-14). As we come to know the dark passage of such an admired and popular public figure, the thoughts it inspires seem particularly timely and appropriate. The Pharisee thanks God "that I am not as...

Resisting terror is exhausting. It’s easier to appease it, but, for the sake of your self-esteem, you have...

She is a no-BS, stand-for-the-truth, take-a-licking-and-keep-on-ticking kind of gal. In other words, she is not like the ordinary, everyday, go-along-to-get-along professional politicians who control our national political parties. And it is precisely for that reason that she can now spearhead an American political renaissance. Our nation has been buried for decades under political pabulum.

However, there is a problem: Under North Carolina's constitution politicians who deny the existence of God are barred from holding office. Opponents of Cecil Bothwell are using that law to argue.... Federal courts have ruled religious tests for public office are unlawful under the U.S. Constitution. While Article 6, section 8 of the North Carolina state constitution says: "The following persons shall be disqualified for office: First, any person who shall deny...

    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune ^ | December 10, 2009 | Governor Sarah Palin
    An e-mail scandal demonstrates that matters are uncertain. The issue is, however, politicized. No president should make deals in an environment like that. With the publication of damaging e-mails from a climate research center in Britain, the radical environmental movement appears to face a tipping point. The revelation of appalling actions by so-called climate-change experts allows the American public to finally understand the concerns so many of us have articulated on this issue. "Climategate," exposes a highly politicized scientific circle -- the same circle whose work underlies efforts at the Copenhagen climate-change conference. The agenda-driven policies being pushed in Copenhagen...

    Don’t be daunted by the length. His comments on Palin and Climategate, replete with lies about how old the e-mails are, come within the first four minutes. (The Goracle’s never been good with guesstimates.) The left’s been breathing into a paper bag since last night over WaPo’s decision to run her op-ed, but Gore’s response here is comparatively restrained. Instead of grandstanding for his base by calling her a yokel or whatever, he sticks to his argument and declines to attack her personally. Presumably that’s because he’s a bit more politically savvy than his carbon-belching pals at Copenhagen and would...
  • Russia prompts crisis of European human rights justice

    12/09/2009 7:42:16 AM PST · by darkside321 · 142+ views
    At 50 years old, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg is sometimes held up as a model for the rest of the world - the only supranational court devoted to protecting individual human rights against abuses of state power.But its future is now the subject of a highly sensitive debate that is also seen as a litmus test of Russia's long-term commitment to human rights and democracy. The court's 10,000 rulings have held member states to account for unlawful killings, stifling freedom of expression and a host of other abuses - to the acute discomfort of the countries...

    For well over thirteen decades the Jewish community of Eretz Yisrael (the land of Israel) has sought to live in peace with its neighbors. Jews are an aboriginal people that has returned to its native land after a very lengthy exile, but which always maintained both a physical and a spiritual connection to the land of Israel. The Arab population of the land, on the other hand, if not originally Jewish (forcibly converted to Islam in the 8th century C.E.), is comprised of invaders and immigrants from Arabia, Egypt, and Syria over the past fourteen centuries. Those neighbors, predominantly Arab...

    Here is a CNN video report that says Russian officials claim they burned the body of Adolf Hitler in 1970 and threw the ashes in an East German river. In newly released details, the Russians claim they buried the body of Hitler and his wife Eva Braun on an East German Base where they remained until 1970, when the Russians turned the base over to the East Germans. They did not trust the East Germans not to make a shrine out of the graves, so they dug the bodies up and disposed of them. That is the Russian version of...

    On Squawk Box yesterday, Jeb Bush was asked about his future and a certain best-seller's (video here). QUESTION: Would you answer my question about who should run in 2012? Are you gonna run again? For anything? [Jeb laughs] JEB: I don't know. I'm trying to achieve financial security for my family first, and I'm involved in education reform, which is where my passions are. QUESTION: Would you advise the Republicans to run Palin? JEB: Would I advise? I think we ought to have an open primary, for sure. If she wants to run... QUESTION: [interrupting] ... do you think she...

    Obama’s Safe Schools Czar’s Teen Conference Literature Pushed Anal Sex in Parks With Strangers December 10, 2009 Jim Hoft In March 2000 the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) organization of Massachusetts held its 10 Year Anniversary GLSEN/Boston conference at Tufts University. This conference was fully supported by the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Safe Schools Program, the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and some of the presenters even received federal money. During the 2000 conference, workshop leaders led a “youth only, ages 14-21″ session that offered lessons in “fisting” a dangerous sexual practice. During the same...

    A couple selections, better to click and read the thread. Reaction from Gaza They should build shops on the Egyptian side of the border. That would relieve the need to smuggle in non-deadly goods, plus bring in money to the local Egyptians. Creating one big prison isn't going to persuade Gazan voters to elect a moderate government. Quite the opposite. Chris Smillie, Cairo, Egypt Reaction from Israel I truly support the establishment of that wall, it is not a secret that militants in Gaza are attempting all the time to smuggle bombs, missiles, grenades, machine guns and more, in order...

    Former Alaska Sen. and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Gravel predicted in an interview that Sarah Palin will run for president — and "she's going to surprise a lot of people." Gravel, a Democrat, called Palin's politics "terrible." "But that doesn't detract from the fact that she's a very talented person," he said. The former senator even allowed that Palin was more authentically Alaskan than he was because she liked to hunt and fish, neither of which he cares for. Back to top

    CMI ^ | December 10, 2009 | Emil Silvestru, Ph.D.
    Canada’s Macleans news site recently published an article titled “Darwin movie too evolved for U.S. audiences”. The article refers to the decision of US film distributors to “pass” on the film “Creation”—the dramatized story of Charles Darwin’s struggle while writing the Origin of Species. The refusal to distribute a film premiered and acclaimed at the Toronto Film Festival seems to have again roused the Canadian media’s scorn of the “backward Americans” of which—according to Gallup—only 39% believe Darwin and his evolutionary theory. It is interesting how very differently the Canadian and world media treated America during WW II when far...

    Law: American heroes are arraigned for allegedly punching a terrorist in wartime. What happens to Tiger Woods isn't vital to our country's future. What happens to Matthew McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe is. People are more likely to recognize the names of Tiger's alleged bimbo eruptions than the names of these three Navy SEALs we sent into battle. They are not household names in a nation consumed with Climate Gate, the public option and the antics of billionaire athletes. An administration consumed with apologies has said the architect of 9/11's massacre, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, must be given all the...
