    The president and CEO of conservative group American Majority Action (AMA) is demanding Republicans band together to fire House Speaker John Boehner. “Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives,” AMA’s Ned Ryun said in a statement. “Boehner has never won a negation battle with the White House or Senate—and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the Conservative Movement. It’s time for him to go.” Ryun pointed out, too, that if conservatives want to unseat Boehner, they’d only need 16 members to abstain from...

    US Energy Secretary Steven Chu says the US will not be able to cut greenhouse emissions as much as it should due to domestic political opposition. Prof Chu told BBC News he feared the world might be heading towards a tipping point on climate change. This meant the US had to cut emissions urgently - even if compromises were needed to get new laws approved. Environmentalists said Prof Chu, a Nobel physicist, should be guided by science not politics. The American political system is in the throes of a fierce battle over climate policy. President Barack Obama says he wants...
  • CA: Talk is cheap - Pelosi compromised by payments to husband

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 10/8/08 | Editorial
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, now reminds voters that deeds speak louder than words in politics because the two are so often out of sync. Last year, Pelosi supported a bill to prohibit both direct and indirect payment to spouses by campaign committees and political action committees for consulting, fundraising or other services. Nor could companies that employed spouses be paid for their services. Since such compensation makes its way into family coffers, it's a sort of self-dealing, and most members of Congress sensibly shy away from it. The House passed the bill by voice vote. It failed in...
  • FLASHBACK: "Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA"

    For some weird, unknown reason in the middle of the night I was awakened with a vivid flashback dream. The dream was a recollection of all the time we early Freepers spent on the Prodigy Whitewater Bulletin Board, discussing Clinton and his unfolding horrible presidency. Somebody told us about a book written by Terry Reed, a Viet Nam vet and how he and a cast of now famous names wound up all twisted in the Arkansas of then Gov. Bill Clinton. The long and detailed book opened up many of our eyes about where Clinton and G. H. W. Bush...

    CIA analysis finds no Iranian nuclear weapons drive: report Sat Nov 18, 11:18 PM ET WASHINGTON (AFP) - A classifed draft CIA assessment has found no firm evidence of a secret drive by Iran to develop nuclear weapons, as alleged by the White House, a top US investigative reporter has said. Seymour Hersh, writing in an article for the November 27 issue of the magazine The New Yorker released in advance, reported on whether the administration of Republican President George W. Bush was more, or less, inclined to attack Iran after Democrats won control of Congress last week. A month...
  • Brin says Google compromised principles (Co-founder acknowledges it met Chinese censorship demands)

    WASHINGTON - Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin acknowledged Tuesday the dominant Internet company has compromised its principles by accommodating Chinese censorship demands. He said Google is wrestling to make the deal work before deciding whether to reverse course. Meeting with reporters near Capitol Hill, Brin said Google had agreed to the censorship demands only after Chinese authorities blocked its service in that country. Google's rivals accommodated the same demands — which Brin described as "a set of rules that we weren't comfortable with" — without international criticism, he said. "We felt that perhaps we could compromise our principles but provide...

    Six Navy SEALs filed a lawsuit against the Associated Press and one of its reporters yesterday, saying the news organization revealed their identities, compromised their security and invaded their privacy by publishing personal photographs in a Dec. 4 story.     The complaint says AP reporter Seth Hettena used about 40 images from the personal photo-storage Web site of a Navy SEAL wife. [snip] The images were picked up by the Arab press, including Al Jazeera, and have made their way onto a billboard outside U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees from the war on terror are being kept.

    The Wall Street Journal The most credible aspect of Mr. Reed's book is that it was not written with Whitewater in mind. He wrote the book Compromised Compromised is the true story of the Faustian pact that Bill Clinton made as governor of Arkansas. It tells how his unbridled political ambitions and his pledge to create jobs for Arkansas led him to compromise his ideals in exchange for support for his presidential candidacy in 1992. By selling out politically to the Reagan-Bush administration, by giving the Agency free rein to operate a secret training base near the tiny western Arkansas...

    Iraq recruited U.N. inspectors as informants and learns in advance which facilities will be searched, giving Saddam advance warning that enables him to play "rope-a-dope in the desert," according to Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. As World Tribune.com first reported, Wolfowitz offered details of Iraq's "concealment" strategy in an address to the Council on Foreign Relations late last week. President Bush offered highlights in his State of the Union address last night. Middle East Newsline reported that much of the information on Iraq's infiltration of U.N. inspectors and concealment strategy U.S. officials cite comes from foreign intelligence services, including...

Judge Juan Leon Villanueva late Friday ordered 43 military and civilian protesters to appear in court Monday. The order came after Chavez accused them of ``cooking up a military insurrection'' and then vowed to squash it. Since Tuesday, thousands of civilians have rallied at a Caracas plaza in support of...
