  • Fierce Fighting Kills 18 in Libya’s Benghazi

    Arab News ^ | Tuesday 3 June 2014
    Fierce fighting between Islamists and a rogue Libyan general killed at least 18 people in Benghazi on Monday, triggering fears of an all-out war as hospitals urged citizens to donate blood. Officials at hospitals in the eastern city, the birthplace of the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi, said at least 11 soldiers were among the dead and that 81 people were wounded. The government of outgoing prime minister Abdullah Al-Thani said it was holding an “emergency meeting” on the violence, which residents said had eased in the afternoon. An air force commander said the clashes erupted when...
  • Jet Bombs Militants' Base in Benghazi

    06/01/2014 10:16:46 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 8 replies
    A Libyan air force jet bombed positions held by Islamist militants Sunday in the eastern city of Benghazi, a senior military official said, apparently as part of a renegade general’s ongoing offensive. The official said the bombing targeted a base belonging to a local militia group called February 17 and the area of Sidi Faraj, where members of the extremist organization Ansar Al-Shariah are located. An official from Ansar Al-Shariah said no one was hurt in the bombing and claimed that one of two rockets fired by the aircraft hit a car dealership. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity...

  • Does Obama Think His OathIs to the United Nations?

    After weeks of failing to provide even strong rhetorical support for the uprising in Libya — an uprising in pursuit of liberty and against a United States adversary — President Obama has now apparently decided that he has sufficient international authorization to act. This begs two questions: Where is Congress on Libya? And does President Obama think he took an oath to the United States Constitution, or to the United Nations Charter? Obama said today that the United States has moved “swiftly” on Libya (one would hate to see “not swiftly”)

    american thinker ^ | 4/12/10 | Louis Case
    he feds are coming to inspect your home if you want to sell it, according to regulations buried in cap-and-trade legislation and standards decreed by the Secretary of Energy. But there are numerous legal difficulties inherent in DOE "inspections." Here are a few: First, the regulations purportedly require homeowners to submit to a warrantless search of their property. The result of this inspection ("looking in") of their home would be to condemn real property (fixtures and things attached to the land are real estate in many states) and/or personal property.
  • Harsanyi: Does process matter? Actually, in the case of health care, it matters a lot

    denver post ^ | 3/19/10 | David Harsanyi
    The Democratic Party believes so deeply in the will of the American people that it may courageously not vote on a bill that it couldn't pass. It was The Washington Post that recently compressed the absurdities of the Democrats' plan to control your health care into a single amusing headline: "House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it." For the typical American, this may sound counterintuitive — or perhaps inconceivable — but, as Democrats continue to display a creative knack for legislative swindling, a question has emerged: Are voters, by and large, concerned about the "process,"...

    Wahington Examiner ^ | 9/27/09 | Byron York
    At the G20 summit in Pittsburgh, and at the UN Security Council meeting before that, Barack Obama continued his administration's new policy toward Great Britain: declare that the "special relationship" between the U.S. and the U.K. is as strong as ever, and then act as if there is no such relationship at all. The British papers were filled with the news that the president would not grant Prime Minister Gordon Brown a one-on-one meeting. "Mr. Obama had refused five separate requests from the prime minister for a private meeting during his U.S. trip for the UN summit in New York,"...

    It seems like a long time ago that Barack Obama delivered these stirring words in the wake of his victory in the Iowa caucuses: On this January night - at this defining moment in history - you have done what the cynics said we couldn't do. You have done what the state of New Hampshire can do in five days. You have done what America can do in this New Year, 2008. In lines that stretched around schools and churches; in small towns and big cities; you came together as Democrats, Republicans and Independents to stand up and say that...

    I'm here in the Dayton, OH area. We are going through a blast of "dangerous" cold. Today 8 degree expected high, with wind chill of -10 to -15. Otherwise sunny. I've got the radio on and I'm stunned the number of school closings! (Not to mention the slightly smaller number of "2 hour delays".) Do you folks have this no-school-today-because-its-too-cold?

    Breast milk 'does not boost IQ' Breastfed babies tend to be brighter Breastfed babies are smarter because their mothers are clever in the first place, not because of any advantage of breastfeeding itself, a study suggests. Researchers found breastfeeding mothers tend to be more intelligent, more highly educated, and likely to provide a more stimulating home environment.However, they stressed that there were still many advantages to breastfeeding. The British Medical Journal study was carried out by the Medical Research Council and University of Edinburgh. Lead researcher Geoff Der said: "This question has been debated ever since a link between the...

    FORT HUACHUCA — Suzanne Despy is finally getting a chance to complete something she started when she was 17. The soon-to-be 41-year-old is back in the Army after the military increased the maximum enlistment age to 42. In 1983, her parents had to sign for her to join. “But not this time,” said Despy, a specialist currently assigned to Company F, 309th Military Intelligence Battalion where she is waiting to start a 20-week course to become a human intelligence collector — an interrogator. It is good her parents did not have to sign again because she joked that they probably...

    Actor Bruce Willis wanted to serve his country as far back as the Gulf War. His friends laughed at him, telling him he was too old. Undaunted, Willis looked into himself – only to find out they were right. He was too old. So the star of "Die Hard," "The Sixth Sense," "Hostage" and dozens of other movies, did the next best thing. He traveled to Iraq with his band, the Accelerators, to entertain troops with the USO. He is also planning to join returning troops at Fort Lewis in Washington state Nov. 5. "The idea of serving my country...

    VDH'S Private Papers (Victor Davis Hanson) ^ | 16 August 2005 | Bruce Thornton
    The liberal media is delighted with Cindy Sheehan. This is the woman who lost a son in Iraq and has camped outside President Bush's Crawford Ranch, intending to stay until the President speaks with her or returns to Washington. For the reporters waiting around in the dusty heat of West Texas, Ms. Sheehan is a godsend, a dramatic, heart-wrenching story that gives the media both a telegenic drama and another opportunity for indulging their dislike of Bush and the war in Iraq.

    Does this man strike a chord with you? By David Sapsted (Filed: 16/05/2005) The identity of a man found wandering on a beach in an evening suit and who will not talk but who expertly plays piano concertos for hours is baffling police. The six-foot tall man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, has been dubbed the 'Piano Man' since being found, soaked to the skin, on a beach on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, five weeks ago. Now in a psychiatric unit at Medway Maritime Hospital, in Gillingham, he will not speak but, when left a pen...

    Bernard Levin dies at 75 By Patrick Sawer, Evening Standard 9 August 2004 Bernard Levin, one of British journalism's most prolific, famous and outspoken voices, has died at the age of 75. For over a quarter of a century he wrote two, sometimes three columns a week for The Times on subjects as diverse as smoking bans, Britain's electoral system, the decline of West End theatre and the government of Singapore. At his height he set the agenda for the day's debate and though he infuriated many with his views and his style, he built up a loyal following among...

    December 29, 2002 States Adjust Rules to Curb Deer Herd By ANDREW C. REVKIN ONTROSE, Pa. — For generations of deer hunters, a doe was the consolation prize — something to fill a freezer, perhaps, but nothing to be proud of. Hunters always set their sights on bucks, whether they were young and sprouting first antlers, or rare 200-pounders with trophy racks. State regulations, not just here in Pennsylvania but around the country, encouraged the practice. And some landowners, eager to protect the next generation of deer, posted signs reading "No Doe Hunting." Now many states are starting to react...
