    CHARLOTTE, N.C...... ....Major donors will experience a very different convention than rank-and-file delegates who will fill the arena on Tuesday and Wednesday night and the Bank of America stadium on Thursday. Besides getting credentials to the sessions they also have access to the best hotels and VIP finance lounges — and finance staff who will provide concierge-type services for them. .....The best VIP perks go to those who donated at least $75,800 to the joint Obama campaign/Democratic National Committee fund-raising committee with more perks going to donors who have a track record of giving at least $122,400 from Feb., 2009...

    Obama's the man leading the Occupy the Oval Office movement. -snip- The recent litany of Obama's odiousness begins with his growing, unambiguous war against traditional Christianity. He has now left no room for any pretense otherwise to be believed. Right on the heels of a unanimous Supreme Court, including his own two appointees, smacking down his administration's attempt to kill the "ministerial exemption" for employment practices of faith-based institutions, an unchastened Obama has decided that even faith-based organizations must provide insurance that covers contraception -- even including abortifacients. This is not just a narrow policy disagreement; it is, as Bishop...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 11/7/2011 | Raymond Ibrahim
    Someone recently sent me an Arabic video that juxtaposes snippets of sermons delivered by Christian and Muslim leaders in the Middle East. The Christian preachers give universal supplications that include phrases like “O Lord, lover of all mankind and savior of all the world”; they quote biblical passages such as “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matt 5: 44); they pray that God may “heal all people around the world of their diseases.” While such an approach is familiar, taken for granted even, the supplications of the Muslim preachers may surprise some. Popular Egyptian preacher Sheikh...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio—President Barack Obama this week will try to launch a political comeback amid the lowest approval ratings of his presidency and a growing sense of economic foreboding here and across the country among voters who are increasingly questioning their president's skills and priorities. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll of 1,000 adults, taken Aug. 27-31, found that 44% of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, with more than half, or 51%, disapproving for the first time since his inauguration. Some 73% say the country is headed in the wrong direction, a level of...

    Sheikh Qabbani tells visiting Palestinian delegation for refugees, “We’ve hosted you and no longer want you... You will never be victorious." The mufti of Lebanon, Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, was quoted this week as saying that Palestinians are no longer welcome in his country. He also condemned Palestinians as “trash” and said that he’s not afraid of their weapons. Sheikh Qabbani’s remarks were made during a meeting he held in his office in Beirut with a Palestinian delegation representing refugees and various Palestinian factions in Lebanon. The furious mufti later kicked the Palestinian representatives out of his office. More than...

    Alabama vaulted past Arizona on Thursday with what is being called the most restrictive law in the nation against illegal immigration, requiring schools to find out if students are in the country lawfully and making it a crime to knowingly give an illegal immigrant a ride. Advocacy groups promised to challenge the sweeping measure, which like Arizona's law also allows police to arrest anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant if the person is stopped for some other reason. In addition, it requires all businesses to check the legal status of workers using a federal system called E-Verify. "It is...

    <p>WASHINGTON -- The U.S. economy shed more jobs than expected in July while the unemployment rate held steady at 9.5%, a further sign the economic recovery may be losing momentum. Nonfarm payrolls fell by 131,000 last month as the rise in private-sector employment was not enough to make up for the government jobs lost, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday. Only 71,000 private-sector jobs were added last month while 143,000 temporary workers on the 2010 census were let go.</p>

    A political activist and pro-family leader says he has great concerns about today's Capitol Hill gathering of Muslims from all across the United States. The event is called Islam on Capitol Hill 2009, and is expected to draw 50,000 Muslims to the nation's capital. It is being promoted as a day of Islamic unity "to express and illustrate the wonderful diversity of Islam." The organizers also said they intend to inspire a new generation of Muslims to work for the greater good of all people, regardless of race, religion, or national origin.

  • Olympia Snowe: We Didn’t Have to Lose Arlen Specter

    IT is disheartening and disconcerting, at the very least, that here we are today — almost exactly eight years after Senator Jim Jeffords left the Republican Party — witnessing the departure of my good friend and fellow moderate Republican, Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, for the Democratic Party. And the announcement of his switch was all the more painful because I believe it didn’t have to be this way. When Senator Jeffords became an independent in 2001, I said it was a sad day for the Republicans, but it would be even sadder if we failed to confront and learn...

    THE coastal city of Galveston, Texas, faces complete inundation from Hurricane Ike, and those who stay behind in one-or two-storey homes "will face certain death", the National Hurricane Centre said today. "All neighbourhoods and possibly entire coastal communities will be inundated during the period of peak storm tide," the centre said in a special bulletin released at 1.19am GMT (11.19am AEST) ahead of the powerful storm's forecast landfall later today. "Persons not heeding evacuation orders in single family one- or two-story homes will face certain death," it said. Slender Galveston island - about 5km off the Texas coast and whose...

    KIGALI (Reuters) - Rwanda has cut diplomatic ties with France and given the French ambassador 24 hours to leave the central African country, Kigali's foreign affairs minister Charles Murigande said on Friday. "We in the cabinet have decided to cut our diplomatic relations with France. We have ordered the French ambassador to leave our country within 24 hours and given other French diplomats 72 hours to leave the country," he told Reuters.

    Former US president Jimmy Carter lashed out at British Prime Minister Tony Blair for being "so compliant and subservient" to the Bush administration in Washington. "I have been surprised and extremely disappointed with Tony Blair's behaviour," Carter told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper as he promoted his new book "Faith and Freedom." "I think that, more than any other person in the world, the prime minister could have had a moderating influence on Washington, and he has not," said the 81-year-old former head of state. He faulted Blair for not having been a constraint on US President George W. Bush's decision...

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad isn't the first bloody-minded tyrant to propose that Jews just go away, elsewhere, even to Alaska. In his day Hitler tauntingly invited the world's democracies to take his Jews, if they were so concerned about them. He knew that for all their high-minded rhetoric, these countries wouldn't accept his provocative challenge. After 1938's Anschluss, their representatives met in Evian-les-Bains, on Lake Geneva's French shore, to decide what to do with Nazism's desperate victims, pounding on their gates in search of asylum. They never even called them...

    Paris, 9 Nov. (AKI) - The French interior minister has ordered the deportation of all foreigners arrested for taking part in the riots that have wracked the country over the last two weeks. Almost a thousand people have been arrested in the last three nights alone in violence which has mostly broken out in deprived areas with large African and Arab immigrant communities. Nicolas Sarkozy's controversial decision follows the granting of emergency powers to the police and local authorities to impose night-time curfews in an effort to tackle the unrest. Since the government decree on the curfews came into force...

    As the full implications of the London’s terrorism by domestic jihadis sink in, Westerners speak out about the problem of radical Islam with new clarity and boldness. The most profound development is the sudden need of the British and others to assert what it means to be British, Australian, or some other nationality. In the face of the Islamist challenge, historic identities taken for granted must now be explained and codified. This can be seen on a diurnal level, where Islamist assertion has provoked a new European willingness in recent months to stand up for historic customs – as seen...

    I have long thought that the issue of illegal immigration would split the GOP base if Bush continued his policy of compassion for everyone but legal US citizens. But the pro-life camp hung in their even though they too mostly opposed illegal immigration. Well has Bush managed to alienate the pro-lifers too. Hell even many Democrats are aghast that what the government is allowing to happen in Fla. It will take time for the scope of this betrayal to sink in, but when it does it will become clear that the current GOP is not up to the task of...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Advocates are asking Hispanics throughout the state to flex their economic muscle Friday by refusing to go to work, school or stores. The planned statewide boycott, organized by two Southern California advocacy groups, is a response to last week's repeal of a law that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses. "Latino and immigrant communities don't have to roll over," said Edward Headington, a spokesman for the Mexican American Political Association, one of the organizers of the boycott. "It's saying that there is strength in numbers." At 11.9 million, Hispanics make up about a...

    San Francisco-AP -- Hispanics in California are being urged to stay home from school, work and stores tomorrow to protest the repeal of a driver's license law. The measure, which would have allowed undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses, was signed by former Governor Gray Davis. However, it has been repealed by Governor Schwarzenegger. A spokesman for the Mexican American Political Association says the strike is a matter of "respect and dignity." Edward Headington says protesters hope to remind legislators that the driver's license issue has not been forgotten. However, some people are expressing reservations about the protest. An official...

U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte suggested closing the $1 million-a-year U.N. Information Center (UNIC) at a meeting of the U.N. budget committee Tuesday, one of several proposed cost-cutting measures. U.N. officials were aghast at the suggestion, saying they had been assured that UNIC-Washington was not to be included in a planned consolidation of information...
