  • Dobbs Blames 'Moronic' Salmonella Response on President Bush and 'His FDA'

    Searching high and low for someone to blame for contaminated tomatoes, CNN’s Lou Dobbs tried: imported produce; a “moronic” Food and Drug Administration; and finally, President George W. Bush. In the June 16 edition of “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Dobbs slammed the FDA and the president for not controlling the salmonella outbreak. After claiming that the FDA is “led by complete moronic, unengaged incompetents” and calling them “idiots,” Dobbs proceeded to link the spread of salmonella to Bush. “As for this administration, were a responsible president at the helm of this country, I would wonder why he is not taking action,...

    NEW YORK Appearing on Donny Deutsch's CNBC show, "The Big Idea," on Monday night, columnist/author Ann Coulter suggested that the U.S. would be a better place if there weren't any Jewish people and that they needed to "perfect" themselves into -- Christians. It led Deutsch to suggest that surely she couldn't mean that, and when she insisted she did, he said this sounded "anti-Semitic." Asked by Deutsch whether she wanted to be like "the head of Iran" and "wipe Israel off the Earth," Coulter stated: "No, we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. ... That's what Christianity...

    Tired Barack Obama resorts to aggression By Tim Shipman in Kokomo, Indiana Last Updated: 2:00am BST 27/04/2008 He seems tired, brittle and more aggressive, and some of his appealing hope and charisma have been dispensed with. Five days after losing to Hillary Clinton in the Pennsylvania primary, Barack Obama has taken off the gloves in his battle to win the American presidency - and in so doing has left critics wondering whether he is not just another conventional politician grubbing for votes. After his loss in Pennsylvania, Obama strengthens his attack In Indiana on Friday, scene of his next showdown...

    NEW YORK ( -- Even as he came on stage to give the keynote address at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, it was obvious that Tim Robbins' remarks had caused controversy backstage. The Academy Award-winning actor and critically acclaimed screenwriter, director and producer first indicated to the audience that he would not be giving his speech. Then, floor agents of the NAB organizers ordered journalists' video cameras turned off. An NAB spokesman later said Mr. Robbins contract had a "no filming" clause. Ultimately, Mr. Robbins changed his mind and started talking. Listen to the six best...

    "A More Perfect Union" Remarks of Senator Barack Obama Tuesday, March 18th, 2008 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 10:17:53 ET “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.” Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America’s improbable experiment in democracy. Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787. The document they produced was...

    I knew Hillary Rodham Clinton pretty well, before I read Kathleen Willey's new book, "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton."  Yet, I emerge from this experience with far more dread of a second Clinton administration than I thought was possible for me.  Like Willey, I have the bruises to show for the experience of eight years dealing with these dangerous demagogues, these Svengalis of American politics, this corrupt-to-the-core scam couple. What I expected from "Target" was an expanded articulation of the sexual assault the former White House staffer suffered at the hands of the philanderer-in-chief. I...

    John F Kennedy's closest living aide has anointed Barack Obama as the heir to the assassinated president's legacy and predicted that Hillary Clinton would lose an election to a Republican. Ted Sorensen, 79, Mr Kennedy's chief speechwriter, drew parallels between today and 1960 when another youthful senator espousing hope and change was written off by the Establishment. Barack Obama greets supporters in Largo, Maryland. Mr Sorensen says his mannerisms echo those of John F Kennedy in 1960 He told The Daily Telegraph: "Both Kennedy and Obama have fantastically winning smiles and I might say both are very relaxed in front...

    Republican presidential candidate Rep. Tom Tancredo, of Colorado, said President Bush's failure to enforce existing immigration laws is "despicable" and leading to a domestic crisis. If elected, Tancredo, 61, said he'd ask Congress to require the withdrawal of Social Security taxes from all employee wages to make it easier for the federal government to track and deport illegal aliens. "If we don't like our immigration laws, if we think they are wrong, repeal them. If we don't think they are wrong, enforce them," Tancredo said during an interview with The Telegraph editorial board at Nashua High School South. "Don't keep...

Thanks, as always, for helping make our campaign possible! Here’s what really struck me on this trip: how much my audiences appreciated it when I spoke to them about some ugly truths that no other candidate, in either party, is willing to address. Some of these ugly truths? For starters, the fact that we as Americans are rapidly losing our national identity, our national culture and our linguistic unity! You and I know...

    In a press release issued, former Governor Mike Huckabee took issue with the Tancredo campaign's characterization of him as a pro-amnesty politician. Unfortunately for the Governor, the facts support the label. Fact #1. As Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee denounced an immigration bill (Arkansas Senate Bill 206) that "would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and would have required state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally." (Doug Thompson, "Immigration Bill un-christian..governor says"Arkansas News Bureau 1/28/05) Fact #2. As Governor, Mike Huckabee offered a proposal to give state funded scholarships and state...

    SAN ANTONIO — A congressman who has been an outspoken critic of illegal immigration called for the removal Friday of the Border Patrol's chief in Laredo, saying his recent comments about the role of the agency make him unfit for the job. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Colorado Republican and long-shot presidential candidate, said Carlos X. Carrillo's remarks in a town hall meeting were "diametrically opposed" to the Border Patrol's mission. Carrillo spoke Aug. 15 in Laredo, a border community intimately connected by commerce and family with Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. At the meeting, Carrillo said, "The Border Patrol's job is not...

    Rep. Tom Tandredo on Monday accused city officials of complicity in the execution-style slayings of three college students by failing to report the prior arrests of two suspects to immigration authorities. Speaking on the steps of City Hall, Tancredo said he believes that Newark and other cities that protect illegal aliens through sanctuary policies could be subject to criminal charges for aiding and abetting."Not only are sanctuary cities a moral outrage that restricts the flow of information to and from ICE, they are illegal - violating the plain language of 8 USC 1373." Also, Tancredo said, "Mayor Booker and Gov....

    Newark, N.J. — Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo is urging the families of three young murder victims to consider suing the city of Newark for negligence, saying its lax immigration policy is at least partially to blame for the execution-style slayings. The conservative Republican congressman from Colorado brought his immigration-themed campaign to the steps of Newark City Hall today, where he denounced the city's policy of not involving itself in immigration matters. "I am encouraging the families of the victims to pursue the option of a lawsuit, in light of this culpability," Tancredo said, criticizing Newark's status as a so-called "sanctuary...

    Civil rights leader Al Sharpton said Thursday black voters should punish Republicans who fail to show for presidential candidates' forums hosted by the National Urban League and the NAACP. "We can only assume you weren't courting us," Sharpton said. "Republicans have to lay out their policies and court the African-American vote. We need to have our interests debated in the market place." Sharpton noted there won't be another NAACP or Urban League conference before the presidential primaries.

    White House hopeful Tom Tancredo said Thursday the existence of the Congressional Black Caucus and other race-based groups of lawmakers amounts to segregation and should be abolished. The request comes in the wake of reports that Rep. Stephen Cohen, D-Tenn., was refused admission to the caucus because he is white. All 43 members of caucus are black.
