    Two years, three months, and seven days after his inauguration, Barack Obama finally offered evidence to prove his eligibility for the presidency. On the White House website, officials posted an electronic document purported to be a scan of Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate. It was a grand "I told you so" moment for the media and the left, which had worked feverishly to marginalize "birthers" as the radical counterpart of the zany "truther." Of course, there was never really any parity. Truthers constructed silly conspiracy theories about George W. Bush being an international super-criminal that orchestrated impossibly complex measures to...

    CHICAGO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - On a recent shift at a Chicago emergency department, Dr. William Sullivan treated a newly homeless patient who was threatening to kill himself. "He had been homeless for about two weeks. He hadn't showered or eaten a lot. He asked if we had a meal tray," said Sullivan, a physician at the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago and a past president of the Illinois College of Emergency Physicians. Sullivan said the man kept repeating that he wanted to kill himself. "It seemed almost as if he was interested in being admitted." Across the country,...

    Don't underestimate sexy produce and it's seductive qualities. CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.” The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve. He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make...

    Amidst the innumerable excuses we're bound to hear for Martha Coakley's defeat, credit Keith Olbermann with likely the most loathsome. The Countdown host would explain away the Scott Brown victory by accusing his supporters of . . . racism. HOWARD FINEMAN: ... I think for most of the American people race is no respect a part of the equation. Maybe not in Massachusetts but maybe in some places there are codes, there are images, there are pick-up trucks. You can say there's a racial aspect -- OLBERMANN: O-o-o-f. What were the Scott Brown ads, though? Every one of the Scott...

Eric Cantor, R-VA. The woman told of her uninsured friend, a middle aged woman with...

    We relax by taking our dog to the local dog park and chat with others who bring their dogs. Today, a man sat across from us and began his tirade about the government's conspiracy in blowing up the World Trade Center. I've heard this before so just nodded and let him continue. His history lesson finally caused me to jump in. He believes that Iran is really our friend and that George Bush is only attempting to gain an excuse to use a nuke. I then interjected that the current leader of Iran is a believer of the 12th Iman,...

    STILLMORE, Ga. - An animal protection organization has raised objections to convicted felons being used to process chickens at a south Georgia poultry plant whose workforce was decimated by a crackdown on illegal immigrants working there. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Wednesday that it was concerned that criminals with violent pasts could be among the workers being bused from a probation center. PETA said it wanted to point out "that chicken slaughterhouses are notorious for animal abuse and that staffing the plant with violent criminals is begging for violations of Georgia's cruelty-to-animals laws." Federal immigration officials began...

    Federal officials have warned Contra Costa Regional Medical Center that it could lose nearly $300 million annually in Medicare and Medicaid funding unless it corrects violence and other problems in its psychiatric unit.The money represents more than 80 percent of the hospital's $360 million annual operating budget."If they were to follow through on removing our funding, it would essentially close down our health system," the hospital's Executive Director Dr. Jeffrey Smith said. "There would be no way of keeping it functional."Smith said he remains confident the hospital can address the concerns and retain the Medicare and Medicaid contracts."We have been...

    Newspapers across Europe have reprinted caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad to show support for a Danish paper whose cartoons have sparked Muslim outrage. France Soir, Germany's Die Welt, La Stampa in Italy and El Periodico in Spain all carried some of the drawings. Their publication in Denmark has led to protests in Arab nations, diplomatic sanctions and death threats. Islamic tradition bans depictions of the Prophet, but media watchdogs defend press freedom to publish the images. Reporters Without Borders said the reaction in the Arab world "betrays a lack of understanding" of press freedom as "an essential accomplishment of democracy."

    At Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C., John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally wounds President Abraham Lincoln. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox, effectively ending the American Civil War. Booth, who remained in the North during the war despite his Confederate sympathies, initially plotted to capture President Lincoln and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, the president failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two...

    In today’s world of politics, words have lost real meanings by coined concepts and definitions and the Westerners are to blame. “Terrorism”, “justice”, “human rights”, “peace and security”, and scores of other words are combined with unreal concepts by the Westerners, who wage wars against others with the very literature. They call Palestinian freedom-seekers as “terrorists”. They have invaded Iraq to secure “peace and security!” Using nuclear technology, even for peaceful purposes, is only permissible for only those countries which observe the Western version of human rights. But despite the Westerners’ widespread propaganda and influence on the world’s giant mass...
