    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A Cary woman who attended Meredith College is charged with impersonating a military officer, fraud and other crimes. Investigators say Lisa Jane Phillips began attending the school in January 2002, wearing the uniform of an Air Force captain. She left a short time later, saying she had been deployed as a pilot to Afghanistan. Phillips returned to the college couple of months later with medals on the uniform she wore to class and stories of missions to Iraq and elsewhere. School officials waived her tuition of more than 42-thousand dollars because of her military service. But...

    What's become of Teresa Heinz Kerry? Preceding its Women Who Make a Difference Awards Dinner on March 1, the National Council for Research on Women is featuring "a conversation with Teresa Heinz," chairwoman of Heinz Family Philanthropies and, up until Election Day, the highly visible better half of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry. "Teresa Heinz will speak to her commitment to women's economic security, including Social Security and retirement," writes the council, not bothering to mention her married name in several references. "I just checked, and she no longer uses her [entire] last name; only during the [presidential] campaign did she...
  • Kerry's Toast (Joseph Farah Recants Earlier John "Medals Tossin'" Kerry Win Prediction)

    Kerry's Toast Joseph Farah I was wrong. When I'm wrong, I admit it. And I was wrong. I was wrong when I predicted months ago that John F. Kerry would likely be our next president. I based my prediction on the fact that George W. Bush was a disappointing president and showed no signs of having a re-election plan in mind. That assessment hasn't changed at all. Bush hasn't done a thing to shore up his base or to energize the American people about his re-election. But something dramatic has occurred since my prognostication. Kerry's despicable war record – and,...
  • Historian's 'Duty': PR for Kerry? (Lying Author of "Tour of Duty" BUSTED -- !)

    What kind of a historian is Douglas Brinkley anyway? These days Brinkley is acting a lot less like a historian and a lot more like a PR flack for John Kerry, the subject of Brinkley's flattering bestseller "Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War." Brinkley proclaims his independence from the Kerry campaign -- "This is my book, not his," he writes in "Tour" -- but he's become a major player in the Kerry agitprop machine.
