    Obama makes Sunday talk show blitzBy Mark Silva WASHINGTON BUREAU - After months of pressing the American public and Congress to support sweeping changes to health care and health insurance, President Barack Obama on Sunday offered a humbling admission: His message is sometimes not "breaking through." "I think there have been times where I have said, 'I've got to step up my game in terms of talking to the American people about issues like health care,' " Obama said during an unprecedented spree of Sunday morning television news show appearances. Asked by an interviewer if he had lost control of...

    President Obama on health bill: 'I own it'By POLITICO STAFF | 9/12/09 10:48 AM EDT President Obama tells Steve Kroft in an interview airing Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on CBS News' "60 Minutes: "I intend to be president for a while and once this bill passes, I own it. ... So I have every incentive to get this right.” The interview was taped Friday night at the White House, as part of an administration media blitz following his address to a joint session of Congress. In an excerpt released by "60 Minutes," Obama said: “I have no interest in...

    Obama tries to build momentum for health overhaulObama will push for new and crucial protections for people who already have insurance JENNIFER LOVEN AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will tell the nation in a prime-time address precisely how he wants to expand health care, pitching a fresh argument — but, to liberal disappointment, no demand — for a government-run insurance option. "The president's going to speak clearly and directly to the American people about what's in this bill for them," press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday, hours before Obama appeared before a rare joint session of...
  • Van Jones joins the Center for American Progress

    Van Jones is an exceptional and inspired leader who has fought to bring economic and environmental justice to communities across our country. He has chosen to resign because he believed he was serving as a distraction to the president's agenda. I respect that decision. Van was working to build a common ground agenda for all Americans, and I am confident he will continue that work. Unfortunately, his critics on the right could find no common ground with him. Clearly, Van was the subject of a right-wing smear campaign shrouded in hypocrisy. Van's chief tormentor Glenn Beck, who spent weeks engaged...

    Sarah Palin is, and always has been, an intellectual and political featherweight. As a moose-killing Barbie doll, she was exactly what the Republican Party in Alaska wanted for a mouthpiece. She was adored by the Republican masses in Alaska (she carried a gun and favored secession, the only qualifications needed). That worked well for Alaska. It enhanced the image of Alaska to have someone in frilly blouses, rather than plaid wool shirts, to front for their oil industry. Good for Alaska. Then something weird happened. The Republican Party nominated the oldest person ever put forth by a major political party...

    Boehner: Climate bill a 'pile of s--t' By Molly K. Hooper Posted: 06/27/09 09:22 PM [ET] Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday. When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, "Hey, people deserve to know what's in this pile of s--t." Using his privilege as leader to speak for an unlimited time on the House floor, Boehner spent an hour reading from the 1200-plus page bill that was amended 20 hours before...

    Histroy News Network ^ | 6-15-09 | Carol V. Hamilton
    . In 1798, during the Quasi-war with France, Congress, with President John Adams’s support, passed the Sedition Act. Outraged by attacks on her husband, Abigail Adams supported the act, which was opposed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, among others. “Let us not establish a tyranny,” wrote an alarmed Alexander Hamilton to an ally in Congress. Indeed, the Sedition Act, an obvious violation of the First Amendment, made a permanent blot on Adams’s presidency. Here is part of its text: “If any person shall write, print, utter or publish, or shall cause or procure to be written, printed, uttered or...

    June 18, 2009 — A picture of colorfully-plumed dinosaurs graces an article on National Geographic, but were feathers found with the fossil? No; the article said, “Primitive feathers may have covered the dinosaur’s body, but there is no direct evidence for that, noted [James] Clark, whose work was funded in part by the National Geographic Society” (which also owns National Geographic News). The feathers are apparently completely imaginary. National Geographic has been caught doing this before...
  • Radiometric Dating: Back to Basics (does it really prove the Earth is millions of years old?)

    Answers Magazine ^ | June 17, 2009 | Andrew A. Snelling, Ph.D.
    Radiometric dating is often used to “prove” rocks are millions of years old. Once you understand the basic science, however, you can see how wrong assumptions lead to incorrect dates. Most people think that radioactive dating has proven the earth is billions of years old. After all, textbooks, media, and museums glibly present ages of millions of years as fact. Yet few people know how radiometric dating works or bother to ask what assumptions drive the conclusions. So let’s take a closer look and see how reliable this dating method really is...

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Denna Smith is a writer who hopes to work with Tyler Perry someday, but, she says, even she couldn't make this story up. "We were like what is that, we were all stopped and we were astonished," said Smith. Smith and her family were at Kings Dominion when they saw a black floating ring in the sky. "Is this the end of the world, what is going on?" Smith wondered. Kings Dominion says the ring is smoke from a ride called Volcano. UFO investigator, Cameron Pack, agreed. Pack said he'd be convinced it was just...

    Despite “decades of persistent failure to create life by the ‘spark in the soup’ method,”[1] evolutionary biochemists are still trying to find an exclusively naturalistic explanation for how the first cell developed. Many possible chemical precursors to life have been systematically ruled out by rigorous experiments. What they have found is that the molecules necessary for life are found exclusively within cells that are already living. One explanation proposed by evolutionists...

The new organization, C.R.A.P. (Center for Recording American Progress), has also decided to change the terms from climate change to seasonal transformation.

    Rain is pelting down on Doña Porcela's treatment room in Puerto Cabezas, the main town on Nicaragua's Northern Caribbean coast. The room is barren except for a few plastic chairs, a wooden table and some old plastic bottles balanced precariously on timber beams. Doña Porcela is a respected traditional healer here and the bottles are filled with her secret medicinal potions. Her patient today is a teenage girl asleep on a piece of cardboard, serving as a mattress on the dirt floor. "Grisi Siknis turns people into witches and they go crazy," she said. Last year there were 65 cases...

    For many Minnesota Muslims, it's been virtually impossible to buy a home, because Islamic law forbids the paying or charging of interest. The African Development Center, with support from the state's housing agency, is now offering Islamic mortgages as a way to help close the home ownership gap among Muslim immigrants. Minneapolis, Minn. — Islamic law does make exceptions to the ban on interest, if one's family is at stake. But the exceptions are open to interpretation and for many observant Muslims, conventional mortgages are strictly taboo. Nawawi Sheikh is one of them. The Somali-American says he and his wife...

After the meeting, Mr O'Dea said: "We met for about 40 minutes and it was very productive and cordial. Senator McCain has committed to raising the issue of the undocumented Irish with president-elect Obama on his return to the US."

  • Palin has mixed record as fiscal conservative

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for vice president, bills herself as a fiscal conservative. But her record looks little like the classic conservative who favors less government and lower taxes. In a state with no income tax or sales tax, she gained prominence by raising taxes on the most influential industry in Alaska: Big oil. She then used that money to boost the annual bonus each Alaskan receives from the government. This spring, Palin signed an operating budget that authorized roughly $11 billion in spending — more than $16,000 for every man, woman and child...
