  • Howard Dean Says Reagan Didn't End Cold War

    Outspoken former Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean apparently isn't planning to celebrate Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday February 6, around which there are coast-to-coast events planned. Instead, the former Vermont governor is shrugging his shoulders, asking what all the fuss is about? At a media roundtable today, Dean suggested that Reagan had little impact other than stopping the social progression begun under FDR and seemed to dismiss the Gipper's efforts to crush communism, giving the last Soviet premier, Mikhail Gorbachev credit for ending the Cold War, a statement sure to draw sneers from Reagan fans and even historians. While Reagan is...

    Professor Kaukab Siddique of Lincoln University thinks the Jews have "taken over America" by "devious and immoral means. What are the limits to academic discourse? Are lies and calumnies from academics protected speech outside the classroom, as well as inside? Does “protected” mean immune from criticism or from direct consequences? Are there distinctions between statements made within one’s “field of expertise” and those made outside? When do such distinctions become hairsplitting rationalizations or mere defensiveness, as opposed to valuable exercises in reasoning and in defense of a noble enterprise? Consider the case of Kaukab Siddique, professor of literature and communications...

    The Hill ^ | NOVEMBER 28, 2010 | Bridget Johnson
    Facing a tough re-election campaign in 2012, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) tried to set herself apart from President Obama on Sunday. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," McCaskill said that she'd voted against the president on cap-and-trade, the second round of cash-for-clunkers, comprehensive immigration reform and every omnibus bill. McCaskill said she'd also sometimes disagreed with Obama when he was a senator. "My record of independence, frankly, stretches back for a long period of time," she said. When asked to name an issue where Obama had fallen short, the senator said his move into healthcare legislation at a time when he...

    Since I'm well aware of how leftists' claims of erudition are as empty as their ideology, not many of their failures surprise me. But an exception came last night when Whoopi Goldberg was interviewed by Bill O'Reilly. The two were discussing their differing views on the nature of the Islamic threat, with O'Reilly maintaining that we have a "Muslim problem" and Goldberg insisting that, no, we have a "terrorist problem." In typical leftist style, she even went so far as to rationalize away the threat, implying at one point that terrorists were as likely to be white guys as anyone...

    The pro-Republican wave in the rest of the nation on Nov. 2 is likely to pay dividends for the party for years to come, with the GOP so strong in the state legislatures, which control post-2010 census redistricting, that gerrymandering alone may yield 20 more House seats for the party in 2012. But in California, Republican prospects could scarcely be grimmer. Exit polls showed independent voters were overwhelmingly opposed to all but one of the statewide GOP candidates. Independents were key to Republican gains elsewhere. Meanwhile, the long-expected emergence of Latinos as a dominant voting bloc appears at hand. Exit...

    Obama denies his global footprint has shrunk by Stephen Collinson Stephen Collinson 18 mins ago SEOUL (AFP) – US President Barack Obama insisted on Friday that he now had more clout on the world stage -- not less -- dismissing comments that a mid-term election rout at home had shaved his power abroad. Obama also mused that talking to the Chinese was tough at any time -- whether his personal polls were up or down, and produced a list of leaders with whom he has forged a particular connection. The US president reflected on the challenges of leadership, and the...

    In which Madam Speaker informs an electorate that just handed her the worst midterm beating in decades that the 111th Congress was actually pretty darned amazing. Among its amazing feats: “Restoring fiscal discipline” to government by passing pay-as-you-go rules, which were, of course, actually ignored when inconvenient and which helped bring us the second largest annual deficit in American history this year. The largest deficit? Last year’s, of course. Now that the amazement has subsided, it’s time to heal. Here’s a passage from a section entitled, I kid you not, “Republican ideas welcome,” which is sort of like the British...

    You don’t send scores of your faithful blithely off the electoral precipice without consequences.Last January, in the thick of the Obamacare debate, nervous Blue Dog Democrats met with Obama and communicated their unease. They specifically brought up Clinton’s electoral backlash in 1994, caused – to some degree – by Clinton’s failed effort to do exactly what Obama was having them do now: pass a healthcare plan. According to retiring democratic Rep Marion Berry, as reported in ADG (subscription only, but here’s a good link from Politico to get the general gist), Obama dismissed their concerns, claiming his popularity would...

People familiar with the matter said the five-member commission held a lengthy meeting Wednesday to debate the civil-fraud charges against Goldman, and ultimately voted 3-2 in favor of pushing forward. The charges were filed Friday. Normally the agency prefers to have unanimous support when bringing enforcement actions against the firms it regulates.

    Updated: Obama Didn't Walk Out on Netanyahu to Go Eat With His Family 3/26/10 at 09:35 AM Comment 163Comment 163Comments Photo: Olivier Fitoussi-pool/Getty Images It was an ominous signal when the White House didn't provide photos or briefings after the much-anticipated meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week. After Joe Biden was blindsided by a surprise Israeli announcement of a new East Jerusalem housing project a couple of weeks earlier, the Obama administration was clearly sending a message of extreme displeasure. Now we know just how frosty that meeting really was: [Obama] immediately presented...

    (Reuters) - South Korea on Saturday all but ruled out the chance that North Korea was involved in the sinking of one of its navy vessels near their disputed border. Initial speculation that North Korea might have sunk the ship had spooked Wall Street on Friday. Share prices dipped partly on geopolitical concerns, and the won dropped against the dollar."Given the investigations by government ministries so far, it is the government's judgment that the incident was not caused by North Korea, although the reason for the accident has not been determined yet," a senior government official was quoted as saying...

    IsraelNN.com) United States General David Petraeus, head of U.S.Central Command (CENTCOM) whose area of responsibility includes Afghanistan and Iraq, set the record straight Wednesday regarding his statements about the Israeli-Arab conflict. In a talk given at St. Anselm College, Petraeus said that recent reports claiming he had blamed Israel for US military deaths were erroneous. INN had reported on March 18th that the rumors that the general had blamed Israel were based on an article by Yasser Arafat's former advisor, Mark Perry, on Foreign Policy's website, and were not credible. INN had surmised that this was a pro-Arab attempt to...
  • Richmond Police Statement Did NOT Say Cantor Shot Was "Random"

    Following is the police statement that I found on liberal sites, using it to say the shot was "random" as the AP did. While the shot may not have had much force after it penetrated the window, this PRELIMINARY police statement does NOT reach any conclusion the shot was fired at "random". At least one liberal site posting this report acknowledged Cantor has reported other threats aside from the bullet: "The Richmond Police Department is investigating an act of vandalism at the Reagan Building, 25 E. Main St., Richmond, Virginia. A first floor window was struck by a bullet at...

L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, said there was a "clear and despicable intention" to strike at the pope "at any cost" with recent revelations of how the Vatican handled clerical abuse.

    Chief Justice John Roberts is not stepping down from the Supreme Court, despite a celebrity gossip report, a source very close to Roberts told Fox News. RadarOnline.com reported Thursday that Roberts, 55, would be resigning for personal reasons. But the source said the report is "completely untrue." There is "no medical issue, no issue at all," the source said, adding that there is not even a 1 percent chance that Roberts is considering resignation.

    Recently, the Washington Post published an editorial, "Climate Insurance," insisting that "the Earth is warming," and that humans have been partly responsible. There are "few reputable scientists who would disagree," the paper said. The Post was displaying its continued fealty to the official story. Nothing had changed, the paper was telling us. It would be ignoring the accumulating snowball of reports from news media around the world that have cast more and more doubt on the official theory. A few days earlier, on a National Public Radio program in Washington, John Broder, who covers global warming for the New York...

    WASHINGTON -- Top aides to embattled Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel showed him at least three documents revealing corporate sponsorship of lavish Caribbean junkets he attended in violation of House rules, but Rangel doesn't recall seeing any of them, according to a bombshell report from the House Ethics Committee. The Democratic power broker attended the junkets in 2007 and 2008 as he had for more than a decade, and told investigators that he had known the event's organizers for 20 years. But he still claimed not to have any knowledge that corporations were paying up to $50,000 each to cover the...
