    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The White House on Friday told government contractors worried about fiscal cliff spending cuts to hold off on warning employees about possible layoffs. The government said it would cover legal costs if contractors are forced to slash their payrolls because of the looming $109 billion in automatic cuts next year and are alleged to have violated the WARN Act. .... Defense contractors in particular have warned for months that the upcoming sequester would cost jobs in their industry. And Lockheed Martin's CEO has said publicly he may be forced to issue notice this fall of possible...

    In Hillary Rodham Clintonís 3 a.m. television ad in the 2008 primary campaign, we heard the sound of a ringing phone and saw sleeping children. In ominous tones, a narrator warned that ďsomething is happening in the worldĒ and asked, ďWho do you want answering the phone?Ē Well, itís 2012, and ó the phone is still ringing. Please, somebody answer the damn thing! The story of the terror attack in Benghazi is that neither Clinton nor the president who made her secretary of state responded to the real emergency when it came. The biggest foreign-policy crisis of the last four...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | September 30, 2012 | Katherine Skiba, Chicago Tribune
    CHICAGO ó Battling mental illness and personal financial troubles, Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) is a heavy favorite for reelection Nov. 6 despite a surreal campaign from which he has been absent for almost four months. Jackson, 47, who disclosed this summer that he has bipolar depression and has undergone weeks of hospitalization, is convalescing in Washington and meeting occasionally with aides. He has been absent from the House of Representatives since June 8. Whether he will campaign at all is in question. His reelection bid is being led by his wife, Sandi Jackson, who turned down interview requests....

    I‚Äôve got to admit ‚Ķ I‚Äôm a wee bit concerned about the upcoming presidential debates. My fear is that Mitt, for whatever reason, will take the McCain fetal position before Obama and not come out swinging for the fence. Mitt ought to do this Wednesday what Babe Ruth did in ‚Äė32 and point to Chicago like the Bambino pointed to centerfield bleachers and then verbally hammer Obama out of the park and back to Illinois. In addition to Mitt being the aggressor versus a genteel back-pedaler, I‚Äôd like to see some former Navy SEALs in the crowd stand up and...

    Barack Obama is beating Mitt Romney. Wait- Romney and Obama are tied in Pennsylvania. And how about all those bungled calls from the NFL fill-in refs? Americans are seriously pre-occupied as we enter the fourth quarter of 2012. Obsessions about the football season and ďDancing with The StarsĒ are a pleasant diversion from our present hardship and gloomy future, and frustrations over the logic-defying presidential polls makes for interesting talk show fodder. But after the election Ė and after the close of 2012 Ė Americans will need to grapple with myriad problems in our government. Whoever wins the White House...

    Today I received an unsolicited DVD in the mail entitled, "Dreams from My Real Father - A story of Reds and Deception". It's from an organization called DFMRF, LLC having a Los Angeles address. This is a MUST SEE documentary of Obama's origins, his upbringing, his education, and his rise to most powerful man on earth. It's worse than you ever thought. Americans have swallowed the Communist Lie and are prepared to propel this once great nation into something like Mao Zedong's Great Leap Forward. Even if this video were shown on national television every night until the election, a...

    Richard Mourdock became one of the tea party's biggest winners of the 2012 primary season when he knocked off veteran Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar in a brutal campaign built on his contention that Lugar was too old, too out of touch and too friendly with Democrats - a RINO, Republican in name only. But the movement's biggest RINO hunter is now changing his tune as he tries to woo moderate voters in a tight race that stands as a key test of the tea party's ability to win outside the nation's most conservative states. Mourdock is matched in the general...

Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why...

  • Democrats: Investigate Benghazi Attack AFTER the Election

    Donít be fooled by the supposedly bipartisan effort to investigate the Obama administrationís actions after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Democrats are no more serious about challenging their leader in the White House than they have ever been. But hereís the salient point, and how the Democrats are duping the public into thinking that they truly want an investigation: Kerry and his palsí letter to Thomas Nides, deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, is asking for more information and a full briefing after the Senate returns in November. Thatís right. After the election.

    Fox News ^ | Sept 27, 2012 | Douglas E. Schoen
    In the 2012 race for the White House President Obama is ahead, but the polls are misleading. In a recent interview, Romney pollster Neil Newhouse made the argument that these mainstream polls are skewed in favor of Obama. In order to address this, some conservative outlets have taken matters into their own hands. One website, www.unskewedpolls.com, has begun reweighting mainstream polls to more closely track the demographic assumptions that the conservative leaning Rasmussem Reports uses. The results have been staggering: the re-weighted polls all put Romney ahead of Obama with margins of between 3 and 11 points. If one looks...
