The ship will be called the USS Gabrielle Giffords and will be christened at the Austal USA shipyard in Mobile, Alabama, where “Vice President Biden’s wife, Jill, the ship’s sponsor, will break a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow.”
  • 'I hope you have a big fence!': Joe Biden's awkward [creepy] swearing-in ceremony compliment

    The Daily Mail ^ | January 7, 2015 | Ashley Collman
    Vice President Joe Biden is famous for his off-beat humor, but when he swore in the new Congress on Tuesday his jokes took on a remarkably creepier tone. When introduced to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's teenage granddaughter Emily, Biden commented: 'I hope you have a big fence around the house!' The comment was made as Biden posed with the 80-year-old Republican senator's large family, on the day he officially became president pro tempore of Congress. Biden thought the joke about the girl's good looks so funny, he whipped it out again when he met the daughter of freshman Senator Joni...

    Dispatch ^ | 7/24/2014 | Staff
    Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has existed for years. The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known. Waters, 38, was ousted from his post effective today, OSU President Michael V. Drake said. Details of the investigation are laid out in...

    On September 11, 2012 — 11 years after Al Qaeda launched an attack against the U.S. — the American Embassy compound in Benghazi, Libya was attacked. In the ensuing gunfight, four Americans died — including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Lost amongst the blame game and politicking that played out over the internet and cable news was the fact that these men came from families. They had lives. They were somebody’s son. Charles Woods lost his son, Ty , on Sept. 11, 2012. Invited to the State of the Union as the guest of Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine, Woods is...

    My colleague Ed Morrissey flagged this story earlier today, and as he noted at the time, the full quote is way worse than his headline let on: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s proclamation in 2007 that the Iraq War was lost, Gates told the crew at Morning Joe, was “one of the most disgraceful things I’ve ever heard a politician say.” And this is a guy who’s been around politicians practically his entire professional career. Obviously the sense of revulsion I felt when he accused Scott Brown of being too scared to debate Elizabeth Warren -- and Mitt Romney of...

    President Barack Obama has to be the most partisan and most ideological president we've seen in a long, long time. He cannot or will not refrain from injecting his partisan politics into almost every occasion. Did he go to Mexico last week to improve our relationship with our southern neighbor or to use Mexico, as he does anything else he can find, as a political prop to bash Republicans and as a platform to criticize the United States? What other American president has so often sidled up to foreign countries on the backs of his own countrymen? Obama's defenders deny,...

  • Newt Gingrich Slams Obama's 'Disgraceful' Comments

    Newt Gingrich today hit out at Barack Obama's intervention in the case of the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager, calling the President's comments 'disgraceful' and racially divisive. Mr Obama heightened the national outcry over Trayvon Martin's death when he called for a thorough investigation into the case and expressed sympathy with the boy's parents. Martin's killing by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Orlando has sparked nationwide calls - led by civil rights leader Al Sharpton - for Zimmerman to be arrested. But GOP presidential candidate Mr Gingrich said Mr Obama's remarks were 'dividing the country up', and...

"Help us, help us," 69-year-old Mari-Ange Levee begged Sunday, lying on the ground with a broken leg and ribs. A cluster of flies swarmed the open fracture in her skull.

    The Telegraph ^ | 9/16/2009 | Janet Daley
    Jimmy Carter has made an outrageous, unfounded and potentially inflammatory remark about race. He has claimed that a great proportion of the vitriolic opposition to President Obama’s health reforms and spending plans are actually motivated by racial hatred: that this president is being attacked not for his policies but for his colour. He offers no evidence for this extraordinary assertion presumably because there is none. The town hall meetings in which the Obama healthcare plans have been attacked with such vehemence have not been characterised by racist slur or even oblique references to the president’s skin colour.

The story by Scott Braddock of KTRH notes that "whether students also recited the Mexican pledge remains a point of contention," however the audio clearly indicates that students are reciting the...

The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    Concluding Question: The Meta-Group and the United States Government It seems clear that the meta-group, with its influential connections on at least three continents, was powerful enough to effect changes, through the Russian 9/11, in Russian history. The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
