    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of U.S. government employees — including some with sensitive jobs in the White House, Congress and law enforcement agencies — used Internet connections in their federal offices to access and pay membership fees to the cheating website Ashley Madison, The Associated Press has learned. The AP traced many of the accounts exposed by hackers back to federal workers. They included at least two assistant U.S. attorneys; an information technology administrator in the Executive Office of the President; a division chief, an investigator and a trial attorney in the Justice Department; a government hacker at the Homeland...

    . . . Imagine that as the convention approaches, Sen. Clinton is leading in the popular vote, but Sen. Obama has the delegate lead. Surely no one familiar with her history would doubt that her take-no-prisoners campaign team would do whatever it took to capture the nomination, including all manner of challenges to Obama delegates and tidal waves of litigation. [Barack Obama] Indeed, it has already been reported that Sen. Clinton will demand that the convention seat delegates from Michigan and Florida, two states whose delegates have been disqualified by the party for holding January primaries in defiance of party...

    ABC News has learned that Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., met with former Sen. John Edwards secretly at his home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on Thursday. Clinton's rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Illionis Sen. Barack Obama will meet with Edwards on Monday, sources say. Clinton initially told reporters that she was not asking for Edwards' endorsement immediately after he got out of the race. Yesterday, speaking in Lewiston. Maine Clinton said "I'll ask John Edwards to help with anything I do in the White House." This would be an important endorsement for Clinton to secure, and is essential enough...

    Once again with the election cycle, it's time to remind everyone of just what our "progressive" DemonRats really stand for. The Democratic Socialists of America are indeed the US branch of the Socialist International Party, which is in turn a chapter of the World Communist Party. I have posted the link to their web site - and cordially suggest that if you have the time, please go there and actually read the drivel posted there. Yes, you will need a large lawn leaf sized barf bag to get through it. The scary part is that they have over 70 members...

    Flanked by Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, John McCain pledged to never to surrender in Iraq and said he would open all the world's markets to Wichita's aviation industry. In his speech to about 350 people, he also invoked former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's name several times, in an apparent effort to draw in undecided voters who had supported Romney. McCain's visit to a large hanger near Mid-Continent Airport came just hours after his primary competition, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee spoke in a hanger on the other side of the city. While McCain has a sizable lead, McCain said "it...

    Hillary Clinton survived a Super Tuesday scare. But there are five big reasons the former first lady should be spooked by the current trajectory of the campaign. Longtime Clinton friends say she recognizes the peril in careening between near-death primary night experiences and small-bore victories. Although the friends did not have details, they believe she may go ahead with the campaign shake-up she had been planning just before her surprise victory in New Hampshire. Her team is girding for trench warfare, telling reporters that the nomination will not be decided until at least the Pennsylvania primary on April 22, if...
  • McCain cancels Brown meeting (British PM)

    John McCain, the Republican frontrunner in the race for the White House, today abruptly cancelled a trip to Europe that would have involved dropping in on Gordon Brown. Brown's spokesman announced this morning that McCain would visit No 10 on Friday, though he stressed that this did not imply any prime ministerial endorsement of the Arizona senator. McCain yesterday solidified his status as favourite to win the Republican nomination by winning nine of 22 states in yesterday's Super Tuesday primaries. He leads his nearest rival, Mitt Romney, in the delegate count 570 to 251. But later in the day, McCain...

    National Security: After getting little done all year because it was too busy playing politics, Congress' year-end priority is to make fighting the global war on terror as difficult as possible. A jihadist couldn't ask for more. President Bush promises to veto legislation not containing immunity from lawsuits for telecom firms who cooperate with the U.S. government in terrorist surveillance. Apparently spoiling for a fight, the House passed a bill without such immunity. It also legislated to prohibit the CIA from using waterboarding and other tough interrogation methods on suspected terrorists. Democrats also want to block 70% percent of the...

    WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee has begun an investigation into the destruction of CIA tapes made during the interrogation of two terror suspects. The CIA said Thursday it destroyed the tapes because of concerns that its agents could be put at risk. Democrats on Friday also made loud calls for the new Justice Department chief, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, to look into whether the CIA violated any laws by tossing the tapes, which reportedly featured interrogators using harsh methods. It is not known if the tapes showed interrogators using the method known as waterboarding, which is widely believed to...

    Excerpt - PORTSMOUTH — Presidential hopeful Delaware Sen. Joe Biden stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without Congressional approval. Biden spoke in front of a crowd of approximately 100 at a Seacoast Media Group forum Thursday, which focused on the Iraq War and foreign policy. When an audience member expressed fear of another war with Iran, he said he does not typically engage in threats, but had no qualms about issuing a direct warning to the oval office. “The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and if he does, as...

    Politics: Hoping to improve his co-president's chances in Iowa, Slick Willie says he was against Iraq from the beginning. So just who signed the Iraq Liberation Act? Millard Fillmore?Speaking in Muscatine, Iowa, on Tuesday, William Jefferson Clinton uttered perhaps the mother of all falsehoods when he tried to explain that wealthy people such as himself should pay more taxes in time of war. Rewriting history, Clinton said: "Even though I approved of Afghanistan and opposed Iraq from the beginning, I still resent that I was not asked or given the opportunity to support those soldiers." First, let us repeat our...

    Fund our troops in Iraq Wednesday, November 28, 2007 Sometimes it is hard to tell fantasy from reality on Capitol Hill. Take the question of Iraq war funding, where Democratic "experts" on defense seem to living in cloud-cuckoo land, arguing against the facts that the Defense Department has enough funds to fight the war in Iraq without further congressional action. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., used that argument this week to justify recent House action tying any new appropriation to a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq, a position rightly rejected by President Bush. As a result, the Defense Department announced last...

    Hillary Clinton's Radical Summer A Season of Love and Leftists BY JOSH GERSTEIN - Staff Reporter of the Sun November 26, 2007 URL: OAKLAND, Calif. — In a life marked largely by political caution, one entry on Senator Clinton's résumé stands out: her clerkship in 1971 at one of America's most radical law firms, Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein. One partner at the firm, Doris Walker, was a Communist Party member at the time. Another partner, Robert Treuhaft, had left the party in 1958, several years after being called before the House Un-American Activities Committee and labeled as one of...

    On Tuesday I voted to end the war in Iraq. Finally, the House of Representatives passed a bill that provides money solely for the purpose of withdrawing our troops from Iraq. Though the bill, HR 4156, must leap high hurdles in the Senate and again at the White House, I am proud to have cast my vote to get out of Iraq and bring home our troops. The bill passed 218-203 and joining me in this vote were my strong anti-war colleagues such as Rep. Barbara Lee and Rep. Lynn Woolsey. The majority of 'no' votes were cast by Republican...

    AS THE DEMOCRATS brought their weary road show to Vegas tonight, most analysts suspected that Hillary Clinton would get a mulligan on the illegal immigration question that she botched so badly at their last tussle. It played out as expected. Right out of the box, Campbell Brown asked the candidates about illegal immigration. Rather than focus on their own purported solutions to the crisis, they collectively decided to focus their ire on George W. Bush for not solving the problem first. This has become the default refrain for Democrats when they have nothing to say or no real means of...

    When the Democratic presidential candidates pause from beating Hillary with a stick, they join in unison to pronounce the Democratic pieties, chief among which is that George Bush has left our alliances in ruins. As Clinton puts it, we have “alienated our friends,” must “rebuild our alliances” and “restore our standing in the world.” That’s mild. The others describe Bush as having a scorched-earth foreign policy that has left us reviled and isolated in the world. The Democrats are living in what Bob Woodward would call a state of denial. Do they not notice anything? -- snip -- And it...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 — The House on Wednesday approved a bill granting broad protections against discrimination in the workplace for gay men, lesbians and bisexuals, a measure that supporters praised as the most important civil rights legislation since the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 but that opponents said would result in unnecessary lawsuits. The bill, the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, is the latest version of legislation that Democrats have pursued since 1974. Representatives Edward I. Koch and Bella Abzug of New York then sought to protect gay men and lesbians with a measure they introduced on the fifth anniversary of...
