    >I am Editor-in-Chief of The Blaze today in large part because I was a blogger who did stories that Glenn Beck featured on his radio and TV shows. Before joining the Beck team I always found, of all the shows and sites in the wide world of web news, that Glenn was the most generous in terms of saying thank you, of giving credit, and of making mention on air when possible. HeÂ’s promoted (and even hired) and amazing number of bloggers and writers.So itÂ’s through that lens that I look at the claims in a new story posted by...

    AVONDALE, Ariz. (Nov. 13) - Roush Racing put up with Kurt Busch's reputation for reckless driving on the track. When the defending Nextel Cup champion was accused of doing it in his own car, the team had seen enough. Busch was suspended Sunday for the remainder of the NASCAR season after his run-in with police, who said he smelled of alcohol and was belligerent during a traffic stop Friday night. "It's the last straw for Roush Racing," team president Geoff Smith said Sunday. "We're officially retiring as Kurt Busch's apologists, effective today." Kenny Wallace replaced Busch for Sunday's race at...

These soldiers weren't charged with fighting the war from camouflaged Hummers or flying missions in the prestigious Blackhawk helicopters, though they were responsible for making sure those vehicles got around safely.

    Once again, a pro-life Christian has had to appear in Richmond General District Court to answer bogus charges brought against him. As was expected, once again the charges were dropped. Those who minister outside Richmond abortion clinics have become used to this harassing cycle in recent years. Richmond City Police Officer Howard Noyse has made it his mission to threaten and/or arrest those who offer help to women who are contemplating abortion at Richmond Medical Center for Women (abortion clinic) where he moonlights several days each week. Although repeated pleas have been made to the Mayor, Chief of Police and...
  • John Kerry's Silver Star

    12/16/2004 2:12:14 PM PST · by CHARLITE · 4 replies · 515+ views
    I just read John Kerry's Silver Star citation and almost fell out of my chair. Having served at one time as an "awards and decorations officer", which is an additional duty assignment for staff officers, I know full well how these citations can be colored and worded to change an "oh no!" into a "attaboy." That is what happened with Kerry's situation. He probably would have been disciplined for endangering his boat and crew, but instead, because of his political connections, they gave him what is known as a "coverup award." One of the oldest tricks in the military book...

The citation appears over Lehman's signature. "It is a total mystery to me. I never saw it. I never signed it. I never approved it. And the additional language it contains was not written by me," he said.

The rewritten version signed by John Lehman, Secretary of Defense during the Reagan Admin., assumingly, Mr. Hume says, because Lehman would go along with a senior member on the Intelligence Committee.
