  • Last practitioner of Minoan rituals may have lived in Jerusalem's Old City till '48

    Ha'aretz ^ | April 20, 2015 | Roy (Chicky) Arad
    Midwife Mercada Dasa lived in the Old City of Jerusalem until 1948. In her attic she raised an unusual pet -- a white female snake about a meter and a half long -- and fed it sugar cubes. Just before the entry of the Jordanian Legion she left the besieged city with her family and her pet remained behind. That a midwife, whose family lived in Jerusalem since the time of the Second Temple, carried on a tradition of feeding white female snakes was part of the family's lore, but not something anyone considered significant. Now Mercada's grandson, Benny Avigdory,...
  • Anatomy of a flip-flop: Dan Lipinski's path to immigration reform

    10/22/2014 4:35:25 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    When it comes to liberal causes, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski usually is a stranger. The Southwest Sider is a Blue Dog Democrat in a party in which moderate conservatives like him have almost disappeared. Last year he was one of just seven House Democrats — and the only one from Illinois — to vote against re-electing Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic leader. He's joined with Republicans in a variety of causes and not too long ago was clearly pleased when his name was floated as a potential U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. (SNIP) Though Mr. Lipiinski kind of shrugs it...
  • Editorial: We recommend Leticia Van de Putte for lieutenant governor (Wise Latina quota queen)

    There are a couple of ways to keep your house warm this winter. You could choose the reliable heater you’ve known for years. Or you could keep gasoline and matches handy next to a fire pit you dig in the living room. Most of us are going to pick the heater. The other choice seems … reckless. Your vote for lieutenant governor isn’t so different. Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, a San Antonio Democrat, has been a steady legislative hand for two decades. Her opponent, Republican Sen. Dan Patrick, is potentially explosive, impact unclear. Also on the ballot are Libertarian...

    Texas Sen. Leticia Van de Putte has a great sense of humor. She also has great political timing. Just as the confirmation hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor were wrapping up, about 180 little packages were in the mail. By the time Sotomayor answered the Senate Judiciary Committee’s last question, Latina leaders throughout the country were opening Van de Putte’s gift with gleeful laughter. Inside was a plain white tee with four words written in blue. They say, “Another Wise Latina Woman.” The cards that arrived with them were addressed: “Dear Wise Latina Woman: “As the first Latina Supreme Court of...

    As Texas Republicans, we have the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the nation. Let's not pick sides, let's pick what is right for Texas and right for America, without compromising conservative principles in the process. Washington continues to be paralyzed and unable to find the right fix to secure our southern border and reform a failed immigration system. Maintaining the “status quo” only plays into the hands of President Obama, allowing him to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce. Saying “secure our border” is certainly the right approach and as conservatives, we know...

    San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro is about to be tapped by President Barrack Obama to be the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This is the second time Obama will have asked Castro to serve in his administration. The move for Castro comes at a time where a big game of musical chairs is going on in the Obama Cabinet. Castro will be asked to replace HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, who is expected to move to head the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

    When it comes to Congressman Lee Terry’s re-election push, Dan Frei is pushing back. Only hours after his badly underfunded bid to unseat Terry in Tuesday’s Republican primary came up just short on votes but long on attaboys, Frei tells Nebraska Watchdog he’s keeping his distance. “I do not have an endorsement for Congressman Terry,” says Frei who was also a no-show at the GOP’s post-election unity breakfast in Lincoln. Despite ponying up $900,000 to Frei’s $40,000, Terry, an 8-term incumbent, managed a meager six-point win.

    Lori Brasnahan was trying to save her daughter’s life when she was stabbed to death in March, prosecutors say. Branashan and her daughter were abducted from the parking lot of Great Northern Mall near Syracuse by a man who brutally raped the 10-year-old girl before murdering Brasnahan, a 47-year-old school librarian. Prosecutors in Onondaga County, N.Y., say the man responsible for that atrocity, David Renz, 29, had been released from federal custody in January, two days after the FBI arrested Renz on a child pornography charge...Nevertheless, U.S. Magistrate Andrew T.

    Polling suggests most Republican candidates for statewide seats will be defeated in November. Two candidates, however, are in prime position to become the first Republicans in over a decade to serve in their respective seats. Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan and Harry Wilson are the GOP nominees for attorney general and comptroller, respectively. Donovan received the GOP nod and avoided a primary when Onondaga County Comptroller Robert Antonacci decided not to challenge Donovan in a primary. Wilson gives the party a great shot at beating, as Republicans would call him, “unelected” Comptroller Tom DiNapoli. Donovan, prior to becoming district...

Couric was recently plucked from NBC's Today show to read the evening news on competing CBS. I wish her good luck; she's certainly going to need it. Couric's new job probably saves NBC the possibility of letting her go when her contract expires next month; 15 years is a longtime for a TV personality to stay in one place. CBS...

    'Minutes' man gets Rather curt CBS legend Don Hewitt hasn't been shy about criticizing Dan Rather, but the grand old man of "60 Minutes" had stopped short of publicly recommending termination for the central figure in CBS News' painful 2004 Memogate flap. Until yesterday. "Should Dan Rather have been fired?" Time magazine managing editor Jim Kelly asked the 83-year-old Hewitt during a Court TV journalism panel at Michael's. "Yes," Hewitt answered. He suggested that the 74-year-old Rather - a "60 Minutes" correspondent since stepping down last March as "Evening News" anchor - was politically motivated in airing a controversial pre-election...

    On the 26th of September, former Meet the Press moderator Marvin Kalb interviewed Dan (I stick by the story - the story is true) Rather before the National Press Club in a manner which can only be described as shamefully obsequious. During that interview, Kalb remarked "there is absolutely no doubt that journalism was brilliant at the time of 9/11. You were right there in the middle of it - it was brilliant...

    Former CBS Anchorman Dan Rather is doing what his idol Bill Clinton did - he's hitting the lecture circuit after leaving his job post-scandal. Move over, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Ann Bancroft, C. Everett Koop and even Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson: Dan Rather has signed with American Program Group, which claims to have the most diverse speaker roster in the lecture industry. Besides the aforementioned, APB represents hundreds of famous names from all walks of life, and the group writes on its Web site that Rather is among its luminaries because he "has been the embodiment of the intrepid...

    Could Dan Rather be in trouble again? A new book on Castro tells of a staged Dan Rather interview that was master-minded by a Clinton lawyer. In Fidel: Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant, author Humberto Fontova reveals for the first time how Dan Rather's "60 Minutes" interview with Juan Miguel (Elian Gonzalez's father) was stage-managed by former Clinton lawyer and friend, Gregory Craig. According to a Cuban-American translator from the U.S. Treasury Department: "The questions for Juan Miguel were actually fed to Dan Rather by Gregory Craig. After a taping session, Craig would call Dan over, give him some more instructions and...

    Hello... I want to have a little fun with my karaoke thing here. (I apologise to the more serious conservatives in here without my kind of goofy sense of humor for this post, but I need a little help) Ok, I want to sing a song and put it into mp3 - it's the words to NY, NY, but I need lyrics to make it relate to Dan Rather. Of course the song will start out "No more spreading the news, I'm leaving today" I can't seem to get too creative on this and was wondering if there were any...
