    “When oil companies are making huge profits and you’re struggling at the pump, and we’re scouring the federal budget for spending we can afford to do without, these tax giveaways aren’t right,” Obama said Saturday. “They aren’t
  • Three Vietnamese (Roman Catholic) priests running for election to Communist ruling body

    Catholic Culture ^ | 27 April 11
    Three Catholic priests are candidates for election to the Vietnamese national assembly, the “highest organ of state power” under the nation’s constitution. The candidacy of the three priests has prompted criticism among Vietnamese Catholics, in light of the clear Church policy against political activity by priests, and also in light of these priests’ clear support for the Communist government. Father Tran Manh Cuong and Father Le Ngoc Hoan, of the dioceses of Ban Me Thout and Bui Chu, respectively, are already members of the current 12th national assembly; they are running now for membership in the 13th assembly, which will...

    President Obama and the first family attended Easter services at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.  As the mainstream press made sure to point out, this church was founded in 1863 by freed slaves. MSNBC proclaimed: Obama attends Easter service at historic church: The first family enters Shiloh Baptist Church to a round of applause It would be such a heart-warming picture of religious devotion except that the mainstream press neglected to mention a couple of things about the church which Obama chose for his Easter worship. The Shiloh Baptist Church hosted an anti-Israel hate fest in 2009 at the...

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he won’t run for president in 2012 and declined to endorse the potential candidacy of Donald Trump, one of his constituents. Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Bloomberg called Mr. Trump a friend and “New York icon.” But he criticized the idea of questioning whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S., an issue that Mr. Trump has pressed. “The president was born here,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “I think the Republicans are making a terrible mistake in making this a big issue.” Mr. Bloomberg said that if Republicans don’t address larger issues...

    Mayor Bloomberg scolded Donald Trump Sunday, saying the "New York icon" and his fellow Republicans need to let the "birther" issue die and "focus on the main issues." "Look, anyone can run for president if you're 35 and you're an American citizen and born here," Bloomberg said. "The President was born here."

    Obama has clearly been the greatest (most effective) President in the history of the nation. Many take his seeming incompetence as a flaw instead of a means to his larger ends. The evidence: 1. Basic economic annihilation of the U.S. economy and the drowning of the Federal Government in permanent and unsustainable debt. Status: COMPLETED 2. Working with the Muslim Brotherhood to establish rule in all Islamic Countries. Status: UNDERWAY, PROSPECT of TOTAL SUCCESS. 3. Creation of local brigades (union/student/progessive) to transform "days of rage" into permanent revolutionary action, intimidate all opponents. Status: UNDERWAY, PROSPECT of TOTAL SUCCESS. 4.

    Presidential Proclamation--100th Anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire On March 25, 1911, a fire spread through the cramped floors of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in lower Manhattan. Flames spread quickly through the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors -- overcrowded, littered with cloth scraps, and containing few buckets of water to douse the flames -- giving the factory workers there little time to escape. When the panicked workers tried to flee, they encountered locked doors and broken fire escapes, and were trapped by long tables and bulky machines. As bystanders watched in horror, young workers began jumping out of the...

    The White House today proposed sweeping revisions to U.S. copyright law, including making "illegal streaming" of audio or video a federal felony and allowing FBI agents to wiretap suspected infringers. In a 20-page white paper (PDF), the Obama administration called on the U.S. Congress to fix "deficiencies that could hinder enforcement" of intellectual property laws. The report was prepared by Victoria Espinel, the first Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator who received Senate confirmation in December 2009, and represents a broad tightening of many forms of intellectual property law including ones that deal with counterfeit pharmaceuticals and overseas royalties for copyright holders.

    Is there any sadder testament to the fading magic of Hopenchange than this? Reading it, I actually felt sorry for the guy. Any high school principals out there in the HA audience have time to throw together an application and reassure The One that kids still love him? And by “love him,” I mean “will happily sit through a speech/photo op in lieu of having to go to class.” The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11 after few schools met the original application deadline.

    RANCHO MIRAGE, California (Reuters) – About 1,000 chanting protesters rallied on Sunday outside a California resort where conservative lawmakers and business executives met for a political strategy session hosted by billionaires Charles and David Koch. About two dozen police officers in riot gear lined up in front of the Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in the upscale desert town of Rancho Mirage to keep the protesters away from the gated entrance. ... Another group, some dressed in hazardous material suits, tried to encircle the resort with yellow caution tape in a symbolic effort to "quarantine" the meeting, but they...

    As China gears up for the Year of the Rabbit, the nation's Communist authorities have censored a bunny cartoon with political overtones. The Chinese New Year - which falls this year on February 3 - is the country's biggest holiday. Families come together for several days of feasting and gift-giving. But, this year, a New Year-themed cartoon posted on a popular Chinese website seems to have rankled officials. Censors have deleted the video, in an apparent reaction to its biting political satire. The three-minute animation begins with rabbit babies being poisoned, a blatant reference to a recent toxic milk scandal...

Poland's state-run National Remembrance Institute has created the new game — called "Kolejka," which means queue or line — to help young Poles understand the hardships of life under communism...

The U.S. Treasury Department was reimbursed $5,682, the House Judiciary chair said in a statement Wednesday. Conyers said the amount was based on the daily use of the Cadillac Escalade by his 20-year-old son, John Conyers III, over the Thanksgiving holiday. He announced that his son used the sport utility vehicle...

    WikiLeaks: British Police Arrest Assange WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested by British police over sexual assault claims in Sweden, according to Sky sources. A fresh European arrest warrant has been received by Mr Assange's lawyer - as anger grows in the US over the latest leaked embassy cables by the whistleblowing website. Sky sources have said officers from Scotland Yard detained the 39-year-old Australian at around 9.30am. Labelling the move as a "political stunt", Mr Assange's solicitor Mark Stephens said his client wants to find out what allegations he faces so he can clear his name. Two...

    Labour leader Ed Miliband today declared 'I am a socialist' and revealed he was tempted to join the violent student protests but was 'doing something else'. Mr Miliband said that although he did not condone violence, the demonstrations were fuelled by 'justified' anger about tuition fee rises. And he indicated that he was open in future to talking to those protesting on the streets, with marches and other protests set to continue. And, speaking to the Radio 5, he took the bold step for a modern Labour leader of embracing the socialist leanings of the party's pre-Tony Blair era.

    "Why don't they fight back?" That's the question I've been hearing from the Democratic Party's stunned and dispirited base. Everywhere I go, supporters of President Obama and his agenda ask me why so many Democrats in Washington don't stand up for what they say they believe. I confess that I don't have a good answer. What I can say with confidence, however, is that the White House and Democrats in Congress ignore these grumblings at their peril. Call it polarization, call it conviction, call it whatever you like: These are not wishy-washy times. If you don't stand for something, you...

    On Thursday night, O'Reilly asked, as part of a show that would be seen by 5.5 million people: "Does sharia law say we can behead Dana Milbank?" He then added, "That was a joke." The next night, O'Reilly read a complaint from one of his viewers, Heidi Haverlock of Cleveland, who said: "I thought the joke about whether sharia law would allow the beheading of the Washington Post guy was completely inappropriate." O'Reilly replied: "Well, let me break this to you gently, Heidi. If Dana Milbank did in Iran what he does in Washington, he'd be hummus." O'Reilly's on-air fantasizing...
