    Rick Santorum called for immigration reform on Tuesday, saying that without newcomers from abroad the United States is going to shrink. “I think the fact that we send some of those people back and don’t give them the opportunity to participate here is wrong,” Santorum told POLITICO. (SNIP) Santorum didn’t advocate for a specific immigration policy while he spoke with POLITICO following an appearance at Books-A-Million in McLean, Va., where he signed copies of his book, “American Patriots.” Santorum, sporting his signature sweater vest, was also promoting Patriot Voices, the 501(c)4 group he launched in June to support conservative candidates.

    Washington, DC — President Barack Obama held a press conference today to announce his decision which will make the month of December ‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’. “The Muslim community deserves our full acceptance and respect,” Obama told reporters. “We have disrespected these innocent and peaceful people in so many ways. We have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11th attacks. They are not all bad. In fact most of them are good. So from now on, December will be a month to celebrate the Muslim people, the Sunnah and the Quran.”

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's federal Anti-Terrorist Committee said on Friday it had detained six men suspected in a bombing in the southern city of Pyatigorsk last month that killed three people and added to security fears in the run-up to the Winter Olympics. Russia is on security alert only weeks before it opens the 2014 Winter Games on February 7 in the southern Black Sea resort of Sochi, some 270 km (170 miles) west of Pyatigorsk where the car bomb went off...

  • Cambridge University first to charge 9,000 fees - unless your family's poor

    Cambridge has become the first university to announce that it will charge maximum tuition fees of 9,000 a year. But it will give hefty discounts to poorer students, which means the middle classes will bear the brunt of the move. MPs voted in December to raise tuition fees to 6,000 per year from 2012, with universities allowed to charge 9,000 in exceptional circumstances.
  • Unemployment rate drops to 9.4%, but December jobs report shows only modest gains

    La Times ^ | 1/7/11 | Don Lee
    Reporting from Washington Employers across the country added a modest 103,000 jobs to their payrolls in December, the government said Friday, closing out the year with a bit of a whimper instead of the bang that some economists were expecting. Analysts were expecting new jobs on the order of 150,000 after recent unemployment filings and private surveys of hiring and layoffs suggested that the anemic labor market was solidly improving. The Labor Department report, however, showed that the unemployment rate dropped dramatically last month to 9.4%, from 9.8% in November. The drop was likely due at least in part...

    The Army was called in today to help clear away ice and snow as Britain headed towards its coldest December for 100 years. As temperatures plunged to -15c (5f) David Cameron ordered the military to step in and help the UKs beleaguered local councils. The Prime Minister also revealed Cobra-style emergency meetings of senior officials and Ministers had been held to discuss the Governments response to the big freeze. Edinburgh City Council was the first local authority to ask for help. Officials have held talks with the Ministry of Defence and the Scottish government to allow soldiers to remove built...

    Not an article yet, and therefore no link. Per Fox News Alert, and also heard on Rush Limbaugh show within past half hour. Why would we not know the results for NV & WA until December? Can a state legally tie up the results this long? What would be the purpose to do this? So NW and WA has time to cook the numbers so the Dem's win? NW and WA must be in cahoots with each other, to try to hang on to the Senate. More info to follow.

  • 75 physician-owned hospitals won't meet deadline in Senate reform bill

    12/29/2009 9:48:34 AM PST · by truthandlife · 22 replies · 1,124+ views
    About 75 of the 127 physician-owned hospitals under construction won't meet an Aug. 1, 2010 deadline on expansion requirements in the revised Senate health reform bill, according to an informal count by Physician Hospitals of America. The current Senate bill prohibits physician-owned hospitals from adding beds, ORs or procedure rooms, and the same language exists in the House bill. Both bills state that physician-owned hospitals must meet four specific requirements to expand. PHA officials say no physician-owned hospital meet all four criteria. Even with a six-month extension past the original deadline of Feb. 1, 2010, PHA Executive Director Molly Sandvig...

    In the dead of night on December 17, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama placed the United States of America under the authority of the international police organization known as INTERPOL, granting the organization full immunity to operate within the United States. Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order "Amending Executive Order 12425." It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other "International Organizations" as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945. By removing language from President Reagan's 1983...

    The investigation into the so-called Warmergate emails - the leaked data from the University of East Anglias climate change department - took a new twist last night when The Mail on Sunday tracked the stolen messages to a suspect computer which provides internet access to China. The address used to post the emails is also on an international black list which highlights suspicious behaviour on the internet.

  • Diane Feinstein: The Constitution does not limit government's power to regulate citizens like cattle

    According to CNSNews, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that Congress has the authority to mandate that people buy health insurance and that there is no constitutional limit on Congress power to enact such mandates, adding that this unlimited authority stemmed from the Commerce clause of the Constitution. If this were true, then the congress has no constitutional limits whatsoever. On anything. If they can regulate private citizens as interstate commerce, then they can "regulate" anything and anyone. This makes the entire idea of constitutional limits null and void. The federal government can require and mandate that all citizens purchase: Health...

    Its no cause for celebration, and Sarah Palins not the type for schadenfreude, but she was right about the death panels. So right, in fact, that the death panels are receiving some very special and probably unconstitutional protection in the Senate health care bill. The creation of the so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board the panel that decides who goes without coverage so costs can be cut cannot be repealed, according to language Harry Reid has inserted into the bill, without a supermajority vote of two-thirds. Death panels? There are no death panels! Stop listening to that crazy cackling...
