  • Republicans Are Trying To Trick The American People Into Supporting Another Iraq War (Huh?)

    There is an idiom, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me,” or as George W. Bush said, “fool me once…you fooled me, can’t get fooled again.” However one puts it, the proverbial definition is that after being tricked once, one should be very wary so a person cannot trick one again. Republican warmongers certainly understand they fooled Americans in 2003 and lied through their teeth to take the country to war against a sovereign nation with no connection to al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, or the terror attacks on 911. Now, they are back again lying,...

Now Dan Sullivan is fighting to become a high-profile conservative brand name of his own, trying to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska in one of the most closely watched political races of the year. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appointed Sullivan attorney general in 2009. Before that he worked within President George W. Bush’s inner circle as a senior adviser to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Now, Sullivan has the task of convincing GOP primary voters that he is Alaskan enough,...

    Reader responses to my column about this year's commencement follies ranged widely, as always. But there were nonetheless certain patterns. The most common one was this: indifference about Brandeis dumping Ayaan Hirsi Ali, irritation at protesters for persuading Christine Lagarde to back out of speaking at Smith, and lots of support for those who got Condoleezza Rice to cancel her appearance at the Rutgers graduation ceremony. Why were many readers cheered by the outcome in Condi's case but not the others? Because she's a "war criminal." To which my response is: No, she isn't. I say this to the legion...

Yet, why are even U.S. conservative presidents included in this negative picture?             For God’s Word, those born in Jerusalem are always born in Israel. But why does the United States, a nation founded on Christian principles and capable of providing great leadership to the world, choose to ignore Israel’s special...

    Recently former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican Party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time — and, above all, some serious thought — into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to "reach out" is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black "leaders" like Jesse...

The conversation centers on SyriaÂ’s chemical weaponry, not on something vastly more serious: its nuclear weaponry. It well might have. This is the inside story of why it does not.

Pundits regularly remind us how other great powers, from Rome to Great Britain, all fell into eclipse. We reject such pessimism. The United States remains the world’s most powerful and, above all, the most indispensable country — diplomatically, militarily, even economically.

    Condoleezza Rice has, in my estimation, served this country with distinction. First, as a member of the National Security Council during the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush. Then, as Secretary of State, during the presidency of George Walker Bush. A FOX News poll released yesterday said that Rice is the top choice of the Republican faithful to be the ticketmate of Mitt Romney, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee. But she is not the top choice of this social conservative; this long-time Republican. That’s because Condi supports abortion “rights.” And, frankly, because the 58-year-old has never been married; never had...

In fact, she does her level best to undermine Israel. Always presurring Israel to make concessions on this or that . Frank Gaffney is right. Condoleezza Rice behaves like a zealot. I go it one further and say she behaves like a pro-islamic palestinian zealot. She and President Bush have been busy spending $millions in...

    Michele Bachmann may be the only woman officially in the presidential 2012 race, but that may not be the case for long. Speculation is mounting that one former and the current female secretaries of state- Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton- will inject some estrogen into the race, though in different positions. Conservative columnist Joseph Curl wrote today that Mrs Rice could provide a much needed addition to the Republican race, strongly suggesting that she is the silver bullet for the vice presidential slot. This comes amid reports that an anonymous group has arranged robocalls pushing Hillary Clinton as a spoiler...

    Candy Crowley, host of CNN’s “State of the Union,” interviewed former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice before the 2011 Women Working for Change Conference about her new book “No Higher Honor,” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and politics at National Harbor near Washington, D.C. on Friday. Between questions about history and policy Rice had some advice for those attempting to find their path to success. According to the former secretary of state, people should first find what they love to do and dedicate themselves to it. Rice recalled how her parents, when she was growing up in segregated Alabama,...

    Ever since he won the Florida U.S. Senate seat, folks have been talking up Marco Rubio's vice-presidential credentials. But Condoleezza Rice, who has been in the news a lot lately, is a better bet to be the No. 2 candidate for a Mitt Romney or Rick Perry candidacy. Here's why.

    Col Gaddafi killed: Condoleezza Rice recounts his 'eerie obsession' with her Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had a "slightly eerie obsession" with Condoleezza Rice, describing her as his "African Princess," the ex-US secretary of state said in an excerpt from her memoirs published on Thursday. 12:53AM BST 21 Oct 2011 The late Libyan leader met Ms Rice in the oil-rich north African country in September 2008, a historic meeting that signalled the once pariah state's return to the diplomatic table after decades of isolation. Ms Rice, unlike ex-British prime minister Tony Blair, declined to meet Gaddafi in his infamous tent, opting instead...
  • Want career success? Don’t cry at work

    Want career success? Don’t cry at work By Michelle Goodman -- ABC News 11:22 AM 09/02/2011 Thanks to Dick Cheney’s new memoir, crying in the workplace is back in the news. In it, Cheney snidely describes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as “tearfully” conceding he’d been right about not needing to apologize for the now-infamous line in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union about Iraq’s alleged quest for uranium in Niger. But you don’t have to be a high-ranking official for on-the-job tears to tarnish your reputation. Among rank-and-filers, crying at work is often met with the same negative...

    The ransacking of Moammar Gadhafi's compound is turning up some bizarre loot. Following on from the Libyan leader's eccentric fashion accessories and his daughter's golden mermaid couch, the latest discovery is a photo album filled with page after page of pictures of Condoleezza Rice. The former U.S. Secretary of State paid a visit to Tripoli in 2008 during a brief interlude that saw Gadhafi begin to be welcomed back into the international fold. As Jason Ukman of the Washington Post wrote on Wednesday, "it was only three short years ago that Rice shared a late-night dinner with Gaddafi to break...

    There's no love lost between former colleagues Condoleezza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld. In a question and answer session for the New York Times Magazine, former Secretary of State Rice is breaking her silence about the criticisms former Defense Secretary Rumsfeld made about her in his new book, "Known and Unknown." Rice was asked to comment on Rumsfeld's assertion that she "almost never wanted" to dissent with President George W. Bush. She replied about Rumsfeld: "He doesn't know what he's talking about." "I don't think he was ever in the room with the president and me when I would follow the...

    My Gloom By Daniel Pipes FrontPageMagazine.com | December 20, 2005 Unlike most Americans, 9/11 made me feel more secure. Finally, the country was focused on issues that had long worried me. “The FBI is engaged in the largest operation in its history,” I wrote in late 2001, “armed marshals will again be flying on US aircraft, and the immigration service has placed foreign students under increased scrutiny. I feel safer when Islamist organizations are exposed, illicit money channels closed down, and immigration regulations reviewed. The amassing of American forces near Iraq and Afghanistan cheers me. The newfound alarm is healthy,...
