  • Christie, Establishment Darling [Henry Kissinger Supports the Obama Lover]

    National Review ^ | 8/20/13 | Robert Costa
    Chris Christie’s darkest moment, at least in the eyes of some members of the Republican establishment, came on a chilly Sunday night in early November of last year, just days before the presidential election. What Christie and his team did that evening, in a series of terse e-mails and calls with the pleading Romney camp, remains murky. On Capitol Hill, insiders still treat the episode like the Zapruder film, analyzing it and trying to discern, from limited context, what exactly happened. But what didn’t happen is indisputable: Christie didn’t attend Mitt Romney’s rally at Shady Brook Farm in Lower Makefield,...
  • Democrats catching impeachment fever? Obama's actions in Libya Unconstitutional.

    If nothing else, Dennis Kucinich is consistent. He wanted to push articles of impeachment against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney over the Iraq war, which his own party’s leadership squelched in the summer of 2008 — when Bush’s term had all but expired anyway. Kucinich and John Conyers instead had to settle for “impugnment hearings,” which one witness called “slightly demented.”Now we have another military action from another president, this one without the cover of a Congressional authorization to use military force, and Kucinich wants to crank up the impeachment process, pun most certainly intended: A hard-core group of...

    POCANTICO HILLS, N.Y. — First lady Michelle Obama gave her healthy eating initiative a global showcase Friday when she welcomed spouses of world leaders to tour a farm north of New York City, then treated them to a seasonal lunch featuring bounty from the farm and the White House garden. The spouses, who came from places as diverse as Cameroon, Mongolia, Swaziland and Latvia, toured the Stone Barns Center about 25 miles north of New York, which is both a farm and an educational center working on sustainable farming — a cause close to the first lady's heart. And it...
  • Most Venezuelans Want Chávez Out in 2012

    06/28/2010 7:25:59 PM PDT · by Princeverdi · 27 replies
    Most people in Venezuela are hoping to see president Hugo Chávez leave in 2012 when his current term expires, according to a poll by Hinterlaces. 64 per cent of respondents want Chávez to step down in two years, up three points since October 2008. Chávez—a left-leaning leader—has been in office since February 1999. In July 2000, he was elected to a six-year term with 59.5 per cent of all cast ballots. In August 2004, Chávez won a referendum on his tenure with 59 per cent of the vote. The special election was called after opposition organizations in Venezuela gathered 2.5...
  • Blagojevich defense team seeks to subpoena Obama

    Chicago, Illinois (CNN) -- Lawyers for Rod Blagojevich filed a motion Thursday seeking to subpoena President Obama to testify in the corruption case against the former Illinois governor. The 10-page motion contends that Obama must have information in the case because the charges against Blagojevich involve alleged deal-making to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Obama when he became president. "The defense understands that the President of the United States of America is not a routine witness and would not request his appearance if it did not think he was critical to the liberty of Rod Blagojevich," the motion...

    WND has yet to be able to identify any physician or medical attendant present at Kapi'olani Hospital in 1961 who can recall Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother, giving birth to Barack Obama at the hospital or who can identify the name of the attending physician. The White House, despite repeated requests from WND last week, failed to provide any details on President Obama's birth, including the name of the attending physician. The White House also ignored WND's request to release President Obama's long-form birth certificate or to obtain from President Obama the required permission for official medical records on his...

    The Sun Times today gave a major clue that Barack Obama will indeed go down with Tony Rezko, sooner rather than later. It looks as though Rezko is about to turn on Alexi Giannoulias, the 30-year old State Treasurer of Illinois (who was elected only because Obama backed him). Here’s where all the clues are…and then we’ll walk you through the local Chicago politics on how today’s hint by the Sun Times has us convinced, for the first time ever, that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald could indeed send Barack Obama to jail. We need to repeat that: we never believed, until...

    Mounting embarrassment makes it imperative that Rep Charles Rangel step aside as chair of Ways and Means. Rangel concedes that he has not lived up to the “higher standard” expected of members of Congress. His latest admission is that as chief of Congress’s tax-writing committee, he was “irresponsible” in failing to disclose $75,000 in rental income and pay federal and state taxes on a villa in the Dominican Republic.......adding momentum to two earlier controversies....favored treatment in occupying four rent-stabilized apartments in Manhattan, and improper use of official letterheads to solicit support from charities and corporations for an academic center to...

    Listening to the tone of many Hillary supporters, they are angry. Even the slaves in the old slavery states were considered “3/4th’s of a person” under law, but apparently the DNC and many leading Democrats - the same ones who in the General election(s) against Republican Bush demanded that “every vote be counted” - now demand that Michigan and Florida voters only be counted as “1/2 of a person”. One could argue that the DNC elite, which is for Obama, considers these voters as perhaps less than even the slaves of the Old Democratic Party South. Putting Michigan aside, if...

    This is a question I pondered yesterday morning. Could this happen? Hillary has been thrown "under the bus" by the likes of the Kennedy's, prominent black and Hispanic leaders, and even by women. The Clintons might have more in common philosophically with McCain if Obama clinches the nomination. DISCUSS.

    INDONESIAN militant Abu Dujana will sue the police, saying he was shot in the thigh by members of an elite anti-terrorist unit after surrendering, one of his lawyers said today. Dujana, who is believed to head a military wing of the South-East Asian militant group Jemaah Islamiah (JI), was captured on June 9 during a police raid in central Java. Lawyer Achmad Michdan said the country's anti-terrorism unit, Detachment 88, had violated the suspect's rights by shooting him after he had surrendered. "We will sue the Indonesian police and Detachment 88 and we will ask the court to examine the...

    May 23, 2006 -- IN my new book ("Can She Be Stopped?"), I suggest that the Republican best suited to the challenge of preventing Hillary Clinton's ascension to the Oval Of fice in 2008 is Rudy Giuliani. A Fox News Opinion Dynamics poll released yesterday offers some strong ballast for the idea: In a head-to-head matchup, Rudy beats Hillary 49 percent to 40 percent, the best showing among all Republican contenders. By contrast, John McCain has a 46-to-42 advantage over Hillary - besting her but not as decisively as Rudy does. Rudy is viewed favorably by 64 percent of those...

    The Nation ^ | from the January 30, 2006 issue | ELIZABETH HOLTZMAN
    Finally, it has started. People have begun to speak of impeaching President George W. Bush--not in hushed whispers but openly, in newspapers, on the Internet, in ordinary conversations and even in Congress. As a former member of Congress who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon, I believe they are right to do so. I can still remember the sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach during those proceedings, when it became clear that the President had so systematically abused the powers of the presidency and so threatened the rule of law...

    (U-WIRE) LINCOLN, Neb. -- You can feel the tension rising in the West Wing and Capitol Hill. Hurricanes have blown through the South Lawn. A Supreme Court nominee has offered a whole lot of nothing. Indictments are starting to pop up throughout Washington, D.C., (and that may only be the tip of the proverbial iceberg). Gas is so expensive, Air Force One has been told to lose weight. The last couple of months haven't been good for the Bush administration and its cronies. But what of the Democratic Party's response? Has there really been one? At a time when the...
