    SACRAMENTO — Sarah Palin typically generates controversy with what she says. Now the former vice presidential candidate is creating a buzz over how much she'll make at a black-tie gala she plans to headline at Cal State Stanislaus. How much she is commanding for her June 25 appearance at the $500-per-ticket affair won't be known because her contract with the CSU Stanislaus Foundation stipulates secrecy. It's the secrecy that rankles state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, who is calling for full disclosure. "The CSU should immediately disclose how much money is being diverted from students to pay Sarah Palin's exorbitant...

    CINCINNATI -- As health care reform takes a step forward, some members of Congress who voted yes, including local Congressman Steve Driehaus, are receiving threats. "We've had some threatening calls to the office. My wife won't let the kids answer the phone at home. Not that, you know, we've got a lot of thank you calls far more than we've got threats," Driehaus said Wednesday. However, the publication “The Whistleblower” published Driehaus' home address with a link that included directions. The publication is asking its readers to protest at the Congressman's home Sunday. When 9News went to Jim Schifrin's home,...

    December 9, 2009 (LPAC)—Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk today accepted (and probably had "invited") the resignation of Dr. Maciej Nowicki, who served as Minister of the Environment since November 2007. Nowicki, a global-warming believer, had pushed a green agenda during his two-year tenure, with such activities as blocking construction of much-needed highways that allegedly would pass over a small "wetland" or wooded area. Nowicki had chaired last year's climate conference in Poznan, Poland, as the president of the fourteenth Conference of the Parties (COP 14), the group that meets to discuss the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change treaty....

An online friend referred me to a discussion where members of Free Republic were talking about the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections, and using my maps from this page to make a point. I had to join FR to introduce myself to that group, and thank them for visiting.

    MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A year after his historic election, President Barack Obama sought to remind Americans on Wednesday the biggest problems he is grappling with -- from the economy to the war in Afghanistan -- are the legacy of his predecessor, George W. Bush. With his approval ratings down from once-lofty levels and Tuesday's Democratic election losses raising questions about his political clout, Obama held no special ceremony to mark the anniversary of his election as America's first black president.

    White House senior adviser David Axelrod shot back on Sunday to scathing criticism by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. “It is a surreal day when you are getting lectures on humility by Rush Limbaugh,” Axelrod said on CBS’s "Face The Nation." “He is an entertainer. The president has to run the country.” Limbaugh called Obama “immature, inexperienced,” “narcissistic,” and “a child,” on "Fox News Sunday." He also accused President Barack Obama of “destroying” the economy, pursuing an “unconstitutional” health care reform plan, and “not caring” about the war in Afghanistan, in the Fox interview. “It’s no surprise that Rush Limbaugh...

    The White House's feud with Fox News has caused an irresistible buzz in Washington, but many are wondering precisely what prompted President Obama and his advisers to go ballistic against the network. Here's the answer: Team Obama was pushed over the brink by a growing list of what it considered outrageous anti-Obama conduct by Fox that showed no sign of stopping. Obama's advisers say that they seethed while Fox commentators used their shows to encourage protests against Obama's healthcare proposals last summer. Team Obama fumed as Fox personalities tried to pressure some controversial Obama advisers to resign. White House officials...

    I hate to write about this, but I have actually been to this play before and it is really disturbing. I was in Israel interviewing Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin just before he was assassinated in 1995. We had a beer in his office. He needed one. I remember the ugly mood in Israel then — a mood in which extreme right-wing settlers and politicians were doing all they could to delegitimize Rabin, who was committed to trading land for peace as part of the Oslo accords. They questioned his authority. They accused him of treason. They created pictures depicting him...

    The narrative from the White House and duly copied by too many in the media is that conservative protesters are uncivil. How soon liberals forget how they reacted to protests against President Bush. In 2007, when Bush was president, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said: "I'm a fan of disruptors. Nothing could be more American." In 2009, with Obama in the White House, Pelosi said: "These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views - but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American." Both sides occasionally get rowdy, but some...

One of the most controversial of those associations came in reports that Jones had signed a petition supporting the “911 Truthers Movement”. is an organization that claims that 9-11 was a U.S. government planned attack on its own people. Jones’ signed the document back in 2004.

Levi Johnston said during an interview on CBS’s “Early Show” that he moved into the governor’s house a few weeks before Bristol Palin gave birth to their child. Palin’s camp has denied the claim, but Johnston insisted the governor is not telling the truth. “They said I didn't live there,” he said. “I was like, 'OK, well, whatever you want to call it. I had my stuff there.'” Asked if the Palin was lying about him, Johnston simply said: “Yes.” Palin...

    Two big stories emerged from Pres. Obama’s interview with New York Times reporters aboard Air Force One yesterday: 1. we have a whining, self-pitying president. 2. The Times scrubbed from its article the worst of the president’s comments, the ones that revealed him in that self-pitying light. Fortunately, the Today show had the tapes, and played them this morning. According to Today, when President Obama met with reporters from the New York Times yesterday aboard Air Force One, his goal was “trying to sound hopeful and reassuring.” Mission not accomplished. As ambivalent as were the president’s putatively reassuring words on...

Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president's surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.A well-connected Washington figure,...

John McCain's presidential campaign, during a town hall with seniors in Gresham, Ore., today. Obama, hoping to soon become the Democratic presidential nominee, was asked in a town hall why McCain, the junior senator of Arizona, doesn’t get "tough questions" when he has things like the Keating Five savings and loan scandal in his past. Obama chalked it up to the Republican side of the race being settled earlier than the still-ongoing Democratic side and the fact that McCain was...

    Mitt Romney compared rival John McCain with late President Richard Nixon Thursday, accusing McCain of persistently misrepresenting Romney’s position on the Iraq war for political gain in a style “reminiscent of the Nixon era.” Romney’s sharp criticism spilled over from the GOP debate in California the night before, where he said McCain was resorting to old-style “dirty tricks” by claiming Romney supported a timetable for troop withdrawal. Romney’s campaign announced Thursday it would be going on air in several major states voting Feb. 5, when 21 states hold GOP contests. McCain leveled the troop-withdrawal charge the weekend before Tuesday’s Florida...

    "The illegal tactics the New England Patriots evidently employed Sunday against the New York Jets -- capturing signals and corresponding audio with a sideline camera -- might have allowed the Patriots to sniff out blitzes had security officials not intervened, scouts and coaches said. "With the computer and video technology, you can dial it up at halftime," an AFC personnel evaluator said. "You can say, 'This is their such-and-such blitz. We'll give you the signal, the code word, and let you know it's coming.'" " (emphasis added).

    Fact, Ron Paul came in 5th in Iowa. Might as well be last. His 10% reflects both a LOT of time and money, and a lot of out of states supporters bused in to vote. 10% is NOT something Paul can achieve again, the primary systems deliberately exclude out of state voters. This is it. This is the pinnacle of Paul's reach. --> From here on out, its down hill. Good Riddance.

    What a whiner and crybaby old man is Don Shula. I mean really Don, get over it. No matter how good the Patriots do in 2007-2008 it doesnt effect how good you were. You are still as good as you were before the "perfect season" of the Pats. You are embarassing yourself and football generally by your whining about spygate, etc. PS: If your best team ever played the 2007 Pats, you would lose by 50-3. At least.

    DIKE, Iowa - Under fire, Mike Huckabee countered mounting criticism from GOP presidential rivals Thursday by playing the woe-is-me card — and then hitting back by suggesting they lack substantial agendas of their own. "Everything but the kitchen sink is being thrown at me," the Republican leader in Iowa polls complained at nearly every stop. "If the only thing some of these candidates have to run on is what's wrong with somebody else, they must not have much of a platform to talk about." The former Arkansas governor recently soared from behind the pack of GOP presidential candidates to overtake...

    ABC News' Teddy Davis Reports During an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, former Sen. Fred Thompson, R- Tenn., grew testy when shown clips of conservatives Fred Barnes and Charles Krauthammer saying that the former Law and Order actor could not win. Thompson said such doom and gloom had been a "constant mantra" of Fox News since he got into the race. He complained about the show's decision to show his poor performance in New Hampshire primary polls and pointed to how he is doing nationally (where some polls have him in second), in South Carolina (where some...

    Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton fired back at her rivals for "throwing mud" on Thursday in a contentious debate marked by sharp clashes with opponents Barack Obama and John Edwards. Clinton, who leads Democrats in national polls, went on the offensive early in the first face-to-face encounter with her rivals since an October 30 debate where her candor and credibility came under fierce attack. "When somebody starts throwing mud at least we can hope it's accurate and not right out of the Republican playbook," Clinton said after Edwards questioned whether she could restore trust in the White House. "She says...

    Some pro-life advocates were astonished by the National Right to Life Committee's endorsement of Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson yesterday — a move they say puts politics over principle. Paul M. Weyrich, president of the Free Congress Foundation, said the endorsement "makes no sense," and speculated that it had been motivated by money. "I think in all probability the Thompson people were engaged with the National Right to Life people in financial dealing," said Mr. Weyrich, who has endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination. "In the past, the Republican Party has funded National Right to Life,...
