  • Paul Ryan’s Immigration Play

    Like his mentor Jack Kemp, he’s pro-immigration.This week, there was a new development in the House: Paul Ryan may be the key to passing comprehensive immigration reform. But that should hardly come as a surprise. Long before he was a vice-presidential nominee, Ryan was an adviser to former New York congressman Jack Kemp at Empower America, a conservative think tank. It was there, in his early twenties, that Ryan began to share Kemp’s politics. Beyond fiscal issues, that meant supporting pro-immigration policies, such as an expanded guest-worker program. Kemp often spoke passionately about how immigration was necessary for economic growth...

    So how is it possible that some of the most successful and intelligent people in the United States cansuddenly become stupid the moment they walk in the door of Congress? Or alternatively, how is it possible that these intelligent and successful people suddenly become unlucky? Is there any logical explanation? Isn't it much more likely that the people in congress are just as lucky and intelligent as they were the day before they were elected? And if that is true, how can you explain the "stupid" things that these intelligent and successful politicians do?

    CBS News ^ | Octobe 12, 2010 | Gay Rights Activists Protest Obama Fundraiser, Lash Out at White House
    With three weeks left until election day, it's highly unlikely Democrats in Washington will take up any gay rights issues before there is a new balance of power in the capitol. Gay rights activists, however, are intent on reminding President Obama and his party that they're not satisfied with what's been accomplished so far. The president was attending a Democratic fundraiser in Miami last night, held in the back yard of NBA star Alonzo Mourning's 12,000-square-foot mansion, when air horns could be heard blaring across the water, according to pool reports of the event. The noise was reportedly not loud...

    Talk about a grand ol' party. The "family values" Republican National Committee spent $1,946 at a West Hollywood strip club last month, records show, but a spokesman insisted Monday that RNC chairman Michael Steele was not among the revelers. "The chairman was never at the location in question, he had no knowledge of the expenditure, nor does he find the use of committee funds at such a location at all acceptable," said RNC spokeswoman Doug Heye, who added that the committee was investigating the expenditure.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama's vote for a federal surveillance law that he had previously opposed has sparked a backlash from his online advocates, who had energized his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. In October, Obama had vowed to help filibuster an update of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that gave telecommunication companies that had cooperated with President Bush's warrantless wiretapping program immunity from lawsuits. ~~~~ Many of the liberal blogs who touted the Illinois Democrat early on have blasted Obama for changing his position. One post on the blog DailyKos.com called Obama's decisions to vote for...

    ...former President Bill Clinton told off some 9/11 truthers that were heckling him during a 50-minute speech he was giving at a fundraiser for his wife in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tuesday. Sadly, he didn't say anything about Rosie O'Donnell. However, as reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, what the former President did say -- as shouts came from the crowd about 9/11 being an inside job -- was rather delicious...Early in his speech, Clinton was sporadically heckled. One heckler shouted that 9/11 was a fraud, and Clinton bristled. "No, it wasn't a fraud. I'll be glad to talk about it if...

    Bill Clinton addressed a crowd in Minneapolis, Minnesota at a fundraiser for his wife's campaign on Tuesday. Clinton's 50-minute speech, which started about an hour behind schedule, was derailed briefly by several hecklers in the audience who shouted that the 2001 terrorist attacks were a fraud. Rather than ignoring them, Clinton seemed to relish a direct confrontation. "A fraud? No, it wasn't a fraud," Clinton said, as the crowd cheered him on. "I'll be glad to talk to you if you shut up and let me talk." When another heckler shouted that the attacks were an "inside job," Clinton took...

    China denounces "brazen" North Korea nuclear test 2 hours, 42 minutes ago China said on Monday it firmly opposed North Korea's nuclear test, denouncing it as "brazen" in unusually strong language, and demanded Pyongyang stop any action that could worsen the situation. China also urged North Korea to return to six-party talks it has hosted aimed at dismantling the North's nuclear programmes. The talks, which have been stalled for nearly a year, also group South Korea, Japan, the United States and Russia. "The DPRK has ignored the widespread opposition of the international community and conducted a nuclear test brazenly on...

    CRATER LAKE, Ore. (AP) - A camper brandished a club and threatened to kill two park rangers, then was shot dead by one of them, a park spokesman said Thursday. The man encountered the rangers as they answered a call about a domestic disturbance at a campground at Crater Lake National Park after dark Wednesday, said park spokesman Mac Brock. When the rangers tried to talk to the man, he became increasingly hostile and wandered around the campsite despite orders to stay still, Brock said. "Still brandishing the club, still ignoring warnings to stop, he directly approached the rangers and...

Sam Brownback isn’t sold on John G. Roberts, Jr. just yet. Not by a long shot. The senator from Kansas is saying and doing some of the things a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee is supposed to be saying and doing about President Bush’s Supreme Court nominee: talking up Roberts’ resume and calling for a fair confirmation process. But Brownback, one of the Senate’s leading social conservatives, has concerns about Roberts’ views on key issues, such...
