    The White House will honor 10 young adults on Tuesday who came to the United States illegally and qualified for the president’s program to defer deportation actions. Each person has qualified for the government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, which delays removal proceedings against them as long as they meet certain guidelines. They will be honored as “Champions of Change,” the White House said in a statement Monday because they “serve as success stories and role models in their academic and professional spheres.” They emigrated from Mexico, Colombia, Morocco, India, Taiwan and the Philippines, and many of them work...

    Prominent comprehensive immigration reform advocate Prerna Lal, who is originally from Fiji, tweeted in July that people should not "mess with Fijians" since she claimed that Fijians had killed, roasted, and eaten "white invaders" in the past. Her tweet, which has since been deleted along with the rest of her @AQueerDesi account, read: Ms. Lal is a respected, published immigration reform activist. She's a "Dreamer"–one of the young illegal aliens brought to the United States by their parents who are leading the fight for comprehensive immigration reform. Lal is one of the co-founders of the DreamActivist.org site that Breitbart News...

When are we gonna reach the point where people say, 'This is enough,' and we start a rebound?" I'm continually surprised that we haven't, that our decay continues apace.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a boisterous three-day congress here, more than 600 leaders of a national movement of young immigrants living in the country without legal papers voted to expand beyond their past demands for citizenship for young people, and to mobilize in support of a bill to legalize 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.The leaders of the United We Dream network, the largest organization of youths here illegally, decided to push President Obama and Congress next year for legislation to open a path to citizenship for them and their families. The move will increase pressure on...

    Newt Gingrich vowed on Friday to campaign for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination on his own terms, saying he would do “whatever it takes” to remain in the race despite the exodus a day earlier of nearly his entire senior staff. “There is a fundamental strategic difference between the traditional consulting community and the kind of campaign I want to run,” Mr. Gingrich said. “Now we’ll find out over the next year who’s right.” Even as some prominent Republicans, including Gov. Terry Branstad of Iowa, questioned his viability, Mr. Gingrich made plans to deliver a foreign policy speech in Los...

    Pres. Barack Obama doesn’t do the mundane. He was sent to us to do larger things. You could see that plainly in his Oval Office address on the Gulf oil spill. He could barely get himself through the pedestrian first half: a bit of BP-bashing, a bit of faux-Clintonian “I feel your pain,” a bit of recovery and economic-mitigation accounting. It wasn’t until the end of the speech — the let-no-crisis-go-to-waste part that tried to leverage the Gulf Coast devastation to advance his cap-and-trade climate-change agenda — that Obama warmed to his task. Pedestrian is beneath Obama. Mr. Fix-It he...

    Humans somehow made their way into the Americas from distant lands, but knowing precisely when and from where they made the journey are matters of heated scientific debate. New genetic evidence, however, backs up a chilly northwestern arrival to North America from Siberia about 12,000 years ago, via a temporary land bridge spanning the Bering Strait. The findings further challenge an alternative idea that humans sprinkled in to both North and South America on open sea voyages 30,000 years in the past. Excerpt only...... whole story at link

    Comments Appear In Men's Vogue Magazine Interview (CBS) CHICAGO U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is now talking openly about running for the White House. The senator graces the cover of the September-October issue of Men’s Vogue magazine, which hits the stands on Aug. 22. In an interview with writer Jacob Weisberg, Obama talks more than ever about the possibility of running for President. Obama is quoted in the magazine, “Look, it was highly unlikely that I would ever be a U.S. senator, so it’s very flattering for people to talk about a presidential race." “My attitude about something like the...

    Despite the warnings of the mainstream media, the Democrats will gain in the Congressional elections from their stand on Iraq.To listen to the American mainstream media one would think the Democrats are bumbling and fumbling on Iraq, while the lock-step Republicans' mindless support of a failed policy is projecting strength and winning the confidence of the American people. For instance, ABCNews.com's The Note - the arbiter of inside-the-beltway thinkspeak - declared at the end of last week that Democrats are purportedly "on the precipice of making Iraq a 2006 political winner for the Republican party". Nothing could be further from...

    A few years ago a Los Angeles television anchor said: "Dodgers and Angels highlights at 11. Please watch anyway." Some viewers probably thought ABC should have said something like that when announcing Al Gore's extended interview on "This Week" last Sunday. But the interview signaled an important alteration of the competition for the Democrats' 2008 presidential nomination -- that is, if Gore means what he is saying, and he seems painfully sincere. "Less than 10 years." That, Gore warns, is all the time that "leading scientists" say we may have "before we cross a point of no return" -- unless...

It's going to be unbelievable. I think the people watching right now who are voters better start paying attention to this issue. It's not just about whether somebody's name was leaked, it's about whether we went to war under false pretenses...

"We're putting our credibility on the line,'' the House minority leader from San Francisco told reporters at her weekly news conference in her Capitol offices. "I told you we are going to win. I told you that I am going to be speaker. "If the election were held today, there would be...
