    I think I speak for the VAST MAJORITY of those who voted Republican in the midterm election when I say F*** Y** John Boehner! This SOB IGNORED THE MANDATE OF THE MIDTERM ELECTION, thus back-stabbing all of us by spearheading passage and funding of amnesty and Obamacare. Save to mention he has just committed suicide of the Republican party! Job ONE of next year's newly seated members of the House is to REPEAL AND REPLACE JOHN BOEHNER AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE!!!! May you ROT in hell for what you have just done to the Republican party, Speaker Boehner!

    Going Galt has a nice ring to it. Most people do not know what going Galt really means. Like so many expressions we have today, it can mean any number of things. How about a going Galt strategy that will generate results? What does going Galt mean and how would the strategy work? Going Galt is generally meant that those of us who are producers in society simply refuse to produce any more. Without producers, the economy will collapse. After all, without the producers, who is going to make what the takers want? Going Galt is actually something the left...

    Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) responded to the nation's downgrade at the hands of Standard & Poor's by calling for the resignation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Saying "enough is enough," the Tea Party favorite pressured President Obama to remove his top economic official and adopt a new perspective. "The President should demand that Secretary Geithner resign and immediately replace him with someone who will help Washington focus on balancing our budget and allowing the private sector to create jobs," he said in a statement. "For months he opposed all efforts to reduce the debt in return for a debt ceiling...

    Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2): Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers) is not at a high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong! ...I don't need Ms. Collins's advice.

    In a move clearly signaling that planning for the 2012 Presidential election is underway, President Barack Obama’s “go to” man Patrick Gaspard is leaving the White House to serve as Executive director of the Democratic National Committee. In a January 20 email to the Democratic Party faithful, D.N.C. chairman Tim Kaine wrote of Gaspard; Patrick Gaspard is a great person. He is a key Assistant to President Obama, having served as the Political Director of the White House for the last two years and before that as Political Director to President Obama’s campaign.

    The National Archives has announced that about 46,500 pages of documents from Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s four years of service in the Clinton White House will go online at 1 p.m. E.T. Friday, providing a fresh trove of information for Kagan’s supporters and opponents to pore through in search of ammunition for her confirmation hearings set to start later this month. White House counsel Bob Bauer indicated in a letter last month that Kagan’s work as a lawyer and policy adviser for President Bill Clinton generated about 160,000 pages of material, including 80,000 pages of paper documents and 79,000...

    If Elena Kagan had her way, Barack Obama might never have become president. The current Solicitor General and soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice tried her best to woo Obama to a life in academia when the two worked at the University of Chicago, according to MSNBC's First Read. Kagan joined the staff there in 1991 and won tenure in 1995. Obama was a part-time lecturer there between 1992 and 2004, when he was elected to the U.S. Senate, but according to reports she tried to convice him to pursue a tenure track.

There would be trouble somewhere in the world, and, from their secret island base, the IR crew would fire up their jets and rush to the rescue. "Thunderbirds Are GO!" That picture came to my mind when I read this THREAD from Pied Piper Pitt, in which he issues the "Go" order to his DU crew. "DUmmies Are GO!"

    (IsraelNN.com) UN investigator Richard Goldstone, who authored a recent report essentially equating the “war crimes” of Israel and Hamas, now says that Israel’s self-investigation has been cowardly. Goldstone spoke on Tuesday at the UN Human Rights Council - “a misnamed institution if there ever was one,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the UN General Assembly last week in an internationally-acclaimed speech. Netanyahu decried the Human Rights Council's lack of response to the thousands of Hamas-fired rockets at Israel over the course of eight years.

    Amazing. Yet another Obama appointee apparently has tax problems. Pardon me, usher, but I think I’ve seen this movie before. This time it’s White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. It appears that the former congressman found a handy way to save money. Most members of Congress find themselves having to support two households — one in their home district, and one in or around DC. Some members, in the past, have ended up sharing apartments or town houses. Emanuel took that one step further: he moved into the home of his colleague, Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), staying there for five...

The hours crawled by. Six, maybe seven men scored jobs. The rest just waited... Two years ago, when the economy was booming and home-building was thriving, many of these same laborers were working every day. Now, they are lucky if they work twice a week, many of them say. Their lives have become a test of wits, patience and hope. Simple lives have become simpler. The...

Prosecutors and police said the 50-year-old was arrested after the discovery of a woman's body in an apartment in Zwickau, eastern Germany. They said she had choked on a Bockwurst, which is a popular large German sausage. The prosecutors said the man had given a patchy account of events, acknowledging that he may have "administered" a Bockwurst to the woman. They are now working to establish exactly what happened in the run up to her death.

"They're ahead of the power curve," Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said of the orchestrated effort by Democrats and groups such as MoveOn.org and People for the American Way. "I think you'll see a greater, stepped-up message on part of the Republicans, to go...

    For Some, the Race Remains Far From Over 47 minutes ago By Sam Howe Verhovek Times Staff Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio — Clifford Arnebeck won't let it go. He can't let it go. Not, he says, while America refuses to recognize that John F. Kerry was elected president Nov. 2. Arnebeck, a Democratic lawyer here and co-chairman of a self-styled national populist alliance, is petitioning the state's highest court to throw out official results that favor President Bush and instead hand Ohio's 20 electoral votes — and thus the White House — to Kerry. Or, at least, order a revote. The...

    The American Thinker ^ | Nov. 21, 2004 | Thomas Lifson
    As long as I am confessing less than elevated interests today, I might as well admit that I really enjoyed the new film National Treasure. This is probably the first Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie I have ever praised, unless you count Team America, which is a parody of his extravagent explosion-filled action movies, acted by puppets. Sure, it is a highly-implausible adventure film, but it has a number of redeeming values. It is first-rate storytelling, with nary a dull moment, and a mostly coherent narrative line. It is basically a treasure hunt, comparable in many ways to Raiders of the Lost...

    9 French troops and a U.S. citizen were killed when Ivory Coast fighter planes bombed a rebel position in the north of that country. The French have hit back, destroying 5 Ivorian helicopters and 2 bombers near the capital city of Yamoussoukro. Ivorians aren’t happy with France’s reprisals. Angry mobs are rioting, looting French properties, and yelling “Everybody get your Frenchman!” and “French go home!” Well, well, well, isn’t France’s criticism of the U.S. Coalition presence in Iraq a bit like the pot calling the kettle black? Listen to the French government’s words, as reported by the BBC: President Jacques...
  • Bush Lead Widens Among Likely Voters -- Newsweek [Large lead published by Newsweek and Reuters?]

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush's lead over Democratic challenger Sen. John Kerry has widened to 6 percentage points among likely voters, according to a Newsweek magazine poll released on Saturday. The poll showed Bush leading Kerry by 50 percent to 44 percent, and independent candidate Ralph Nader drawing 1 percent support. That compared with a Bush lead last week over Kerry of 48 percent to 46 percent among likely voters. The Newsweek surveys had a margin of error of 4 points, meaning the two candidates remained in a statistical dead heat days before Tuesday's election. This week's poll surveyed 1,005...

    Kerry touts his economic plan in North Carolina GROMER JEFFERS JR. Knight Ridder Tribune News Service Posted on Sat, Aug. 21, 2004 CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Peter Offnick, a former Vietnam veteran who says his job was outsourced to Mexico, is the kind of voter John Kerry hopes to attract. "I was quite disappointed," said the 60-year-old factory worker from Charlotte, who lost his job after 30 years. "I wasn't sure what I was going to do." Offnick was one of several laid-off workers who met with Kerry on Friday in Charlotte. The Massachusetts senator has made employment, heath care and...

    Gov. McGreevey Should Go, Quickly By Paul Schindler A number of straight journalists told me that they were confused by the emotional high point of New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey’s resignation speech last Thursday in Trenton. “And so my truth is that I am a gay American,” the governor said, in a line replayed over and over again on television. The moment I heard that statement—days before I learned that McGreevey had sought advice from the Human Rights Campaign on his choice of words—I instinctively understood its rhetorical power. With one artful phrase, the governor was joining his experience to...

    Coffee 'can make mind go blank' By Nic Fleming (Filed: 20/07/2004) Drinking coffee can cause tip-of-the-tongue moments when the brain struggles to retrieve information, according to a study. Caffeine, widely held to make people more alert, can make the mind go blank or struggle to switch between trains of thought. It can help the brain process information rapidly but interferes once the brain tries to switch between subjects, researchers claim. Volunteers were split into two groups, with one given 200 milligrams of caffeine - the equivalent of two cups of coffee. They then answered 100 questions after reading 10 "priming...
