    Newt Gingrich demanded Friday that Mitt Romney stop the barrage of TV attack ads that badly damage him and Rick Santorum each time they seemed poised to make big strides in the GOP presidential race. Admitting to Louisiana voters that he can't match Romney and a pro-Romney super PAC in fundraising, Gingrich repeated a plea that thus far the front-running Romney has ignored. "I challenge Gov. Romney and his super PAC to pledge to take every negative ad about every Republican off the air, because it dishonors them, it weakens the Republican Party, and it helps Barack Obama," Gingrich told...
  • Disgrace: Pastor Makes Believe He was Navy SEAL, Aspects of Seagal Movie, GI Jane in Stories

    It seems like people want credit for being heroes-- even when they are far from it. Now that Osama bin Laden has met his end at the hands of Navy SEALs, there are many that want to jump on the bandwagon. One case is a pastor from Pennsylvania, Jim Moats, who has been telling his congregation for five years that he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam: Apparently at least part was based on Steven Seagal's 1992 film Under Seige: Among other things, Moats said he was subjected to waterboarding when he trained at Little Creek Amphibious Base in Virginia...
  • L.A. Times: Debt before dishonor (It is irresponsible to refuse to raise the debt limit)

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 01/10/2011 | The Editors
    The huge annual budget deficits Congress has been running are pushing Washington close to the debt limit again. With the debt near $14 trillion, the federal government is expected to hit the current limit of $14.3 trillion within the next few months. That leaves lawmakers no choice but to raise the statutory cap on borrowing; to do otherwise would eventually render the federal government unable to perform crucial functions, such as writing Social Security checks or paying off maturing bonds. The consequences would be devastating — just imagine how high an interest rate the United States would have to pay...

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | Aug 7, 2008 | ARIEH ELDAD
    Once, many years ago, we were proud to say we were Israelis. Israel's accomplishments in agriculture, settlement and science were internationally acclaimed, and the Israeli army was our pride. We all recall the world's applause after the Entebbe operation, when we proved that nothing was too far for us, and nothing too difficult. We didn't negotiate with murderous terrorists, we fought them. We didn't trade in blood. Anyone who attacked us paid for doing so. We rescued our brothers even from the grip of distant savages. Where did we go wrong? Today we want to hide our faces in shame...

    (IsraelNN.com) Following the deal with Hizbullah, the Arabs of Judea and Samaria ("Palestinians") feel more strongly than ever that "Israel only understands strength," according to a Saudi newspaper. The paper, Al Sharq Al-Awsat, reported that this attitude has been strengthened by Israel's reported flexibility toward Hamas's demands to free prisoners who were involved in hurting Israelis as part of the deal to free abducted soldier Gilad Shalit. The paper says that the prisoners' relatives have "begun to lose hope" that the Fatah-PA will be able to secure their release through negotiations with Israel.

    New York Times ^ | July 11, 2007 | Adam Graham-Silverman and David Nather, CQ Staff
    The Senate refused Wednesday to limit debate on the first amendment to the fiscal 2008 defense authorization bill, digging in along partisan lines over whether to tell President Bush how to wage the war in Iraq. By 56-41, senators refused to invoke cloture on an amendment by Jim Webb, D-Va., that sought to require specific minimum intervals between deployments of U.S. troops. The final tally was four short of the 60 votes needed, and Webb withdrew his amendment after the cloture test failed. Seven Republicans voted to limit debate — Norm Coleman, Minn., Susan Collins, Maine; Chuck Hagel, Neb.; Gordon...

    Law orders removal of Arlington remains December 27, 2006 HAGERSTOWN, Md. – The cremated remains of a murderer must be removed from Arlington National Cemetery under a new federal law. The provision ordering the removal of Russell Wayne Wagner's remains was included in a veterans' health care and benefits bill that President Bush signed into law Friday. Wagner, a Vietnam veteran, was convicted in 2002 of stabbing to death Daniel Davis, 84, and Wilda Davis, 80, in their home in 1994. He was sentenced to life in prison. Wagner died in 2005 of a heroin overdose in prison at age...

    A U.S. Army soldier who fled to Canada rather than return to Iraq said Tuesday he was traveling to Fort Knox to surrender to military authorities. Kyle Snyder, a former combat engineer, left the U.S. in April 2005 while on leave to avoid a second deployment to Iraq. "I don't see a lot of positive things coming from this war," Snyder told reporters Tuesday morning at a Louisville church. "I see it as a counterproductive mission." The 23-year-old from Colorado Springs, Colo., had trained as an engineer with the 94th Corps of Engineers, but he said he was put on...

    Many people have become aware of a recent serious photo copyright infringement.

I first became aware of the infringement when stunned and angry readers contacted me under the mistaken belief that I allowed SHOCK magazine to use it on their cover. I did not, and never would have agreed to their usage. I regularly turn down usage requests for this photo — uses that could earn money — because this photo is...

    According to police estimates, 50,000 people will march in San Jose in support of criminal fugitive illegal aliens, primarily from Mexico, which just today legalized the use and possession of cocaine, angeldust, heroin, and marijuana. San Jose is a hot-bed of anti-gringo hostility. Expect the Mexican flag to dominate the march fly in place of our country's 'Old Glory'. The march is expected to stop traffic from Story Road to City Hall on Santa Clara Street. It's curious to me that the Mexicans have chosen May 1st to march.

"When I was 18, I wasn't aware that duty and honor would mean as much to me as they do now," Allen Abney, 56, said Monday in this southeast British Columbia town. "Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have done what I did 38 years ago," he said. "It wasn't worth it, all the pain I caused my family." Abney was arrested March 9...

But when she told Richo she would never divorce her husband unless “he hurt my children,” Air Force prosecutors charge that Richo followed through with a devious plan to get the airman in trouble and break up the marriage. Richo, of the 435th Communications Squadron at Ramstein, is accused of setting up his former friend by planting photos and documents on his computer to make it look like...

    FORT RILEY, Kan. -- A soldier convicted of murdering unarmed Iraqis testified Thursday that he falsely implicated his platoon leader in one of the slayings so that he could get a lighter prison sentence. The startling testimony came at a military hearing to determine whether 2nd Lt. Erick J. Anderson should be court-martialed on murder charges. Pvt. Michael Williams said, contrary to his earlier statements, that the Iraqi victim was already dead when Anderson arrived, and that Anderson never gave any order to kill him. "I just felt that pressure of getting a life sentence instead of 25 years," Williams...
