    While part of the current unrest in Wisconsin is driven by local issues, new information has been uncovered indicating an orchestrated attempt to stir up 'worker protests' not only in Wisconsin but in at least a dozen states. The coordinated effort is part of a 'revolution' spearheaded in part by a group called 'Heartland Revolution,' a Kentucky-based political action organization. The group was first envisioned by a Kentucky Democrat, John Waltz, who announced his candidacy in 2009 to oppose 2-term Republican Geoff Davis for the 4th Congressional District. Waltz was defeated in the November 2010 midterm elections but embarked on...

    House Science Committee Republicans are asking President Obama to ensure that records associated with outgoing top White House climate and energy adviser Carol Browner are preserved. “Ms. Browner and her staff are central figures in many decisions and issues of interest to the House Science, Space and Technology Committee,” according to a letter that Chairman Ralph Hall (R-Texas) and three other senior Republicans on the panel sent late Tuesday. The Republicans are asking for all documents – which they say “is to be construed in the broadest sense” – associated with the White House Office of Energy and

    There have been some real characters elected to Congress over the years. Davy Crockett, for instance, served one term in the House of Representatives, then told his constituents to go to hell and headed for Texas where he died defending the Alamo and became an American icon. And who could ever forget those delightful violin concertos delivered so frequently by Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia? Fortunately, the current Congress is not without its share of fascinating personalities. Take Rep. Henry Waxman, the California Democrat who must be moonlighting at the Comedy Club. Seems he had folks rolling in the...

    YAKIMA, Wash. — More than 50 demonstrators marched in front of the federal courthouse in downtown Yakima on Tuesday to protest the arrest of 30 illegal immigrants in Ellensburg last week. Most of the demonstrators were students at Ellensburg High School, where some of the suspects’ children attended. The marchers say the arrested people were only trying to support their families by working in the United States. The families will be split up by the arrests, critics say. Charging documents filed in U.S. District Court allege that the defendants used counterfeit identity documents to obtain work.

    Associated Press – 18 mins ago WASHINGTON – A House committee has asked the Homeland Security Department to provide documents about an agency policy that required political appointees to review many Freedom of Information Act requests before the records were released, according to a letter obtained Sunday by The Associated Press. The letter to Homeland Security was sent late Friday by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. It represents an early move by House Republicans who have vowed to launch numerous probes of President Barack Obama's administration, ranging from its implementation of the...

    More damaging effects from the most recent “dumping of documents” from Wikileaks is being felt all the more. First, this will all the more, put our American military service people at greater risk to lose their lives. Also this will decrease trust, over the short-term, of the United States. In this interview of Former Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, he makes no bones about in his words the outrage over this further efforts to damage good international relations with the USA and other countries, which includes IMHO THIS MOST RECENT DOCUMENT DUMPING ONLINE.

    A judge ruled Saturday that the Fairbanks North Star Borough must release personnel records of U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller. "I hold that although Mr. Miller has a legitimate expectation of privacy in those documents, Mr. Miller's right to privacy is indeed outweighed by the public's significant interest in the background of a public figure who is running for the U.S. Senate," the judge said. He noted that U.S. senator is among the highest elected offices in the nation.
  • Were Obama's own mortgage documents signed by a 'robo-signer'?

    A consumer advocacy Web site has obtained some mortgage paperwork for President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama's home in Chicago. The documents, which show that the couple's mortgage of $210,000 was fully paid on May 10, 2005, are signed by a Chase Home Finance vice president Marshe Craine. The interesting thing about the documents is that Craine's signature on court documents related to other people's homes looks radically different from the version on the Obamas' paperwork. In other, unrelated cases, attorneys for homeowners have accused loan processing companies of allowing employees to forge other people's signatures.

    (CNN) - WikiLeaks, a whistle-blower website, posted on the group's 
Twitter page on Tuesday: "WikiLeaks to release CIA paper tomorrow." The website set off a firestorm of controversy recently when it posted 
some 76,000 U.S. documents related to the war in Afghanistan. The group has 
said it has another 15,000 documents, which it plans to release soon. It was not immediately clear whether the Twitter post on Tuesday is 
related to the batch of documents that WikiLeaks has called the "Afghan War 
Diary."

    Back in February, a leaked memo from the Department of the Interior showed that the Obama administration was considering designating as many as 17 new national monuments throughout the West, effectively closing off huge swaths of land to development. That this was being done without the input of Congress or local authorities angered many. Now Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus and Ranking Member on the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands has uncovered 14 more pages from the document that were previously unavailable. The new pages show a federal bureaucracy...

    LONDON – It has no headquarters and its public face — a wiry, silver-haired Australian with a physics Ph.D. — carries his desktop computer in a backpack as he moves from place to place. WikiLeaks is a bare-bones organization on a mission to root out the secrets of the high and mighty, from Sarah Palin to the Church of Scientology. Its founder, Julian Assange, said his group's biggest coup so far — the publication of tens of thousands of classified U.S. military reports on Afghanistan — will likely unleash a new wave of leaks.

    It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign. The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public –...

    SALT LAKE CITY -- A puppy rescued from the bowels of a deep slot canyon is now recovering in Salt Lake City after a close brush with death. The man who rescued him documented much of the incredible story with his own video camera. Imagine trying to get a dog that's near death out of a deep canyon, all by yourself -- and at the same time, getting yourself out by rope. On top of that, imagine shooting video much of the time. That's the story we have to tell. They don't know his real name, so they just call...
