    In an April 20 (given the deep connections between the Brotherhood and the Nazi Party, the date may not have been an accident) story in the Jerusalem Post, the question was asked, Will Qatar abandon the Muslim Brotherhood? As they put it, Qatar is the only country who openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood. This followed the pressure exerted on Qatar to do just that from its three Gulf neighbors, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Saudi Arabia even threatened a blockade should Qatar not comply. Clearly the Brotherhood, and their revolutionary aims, had been recognized as a threat...

    Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s promise that she had scrubbed illegal cash contributions from her 2008 presidential campaign, prosecutors revealed Monday that the mastermind of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s “shadow campaign” also funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid Mrs. Clinton’s bid for the White House.

    With Mayor Vince Gray expected to receive the Large Retailer Accountability Act for a signature or veto by the end of the week, supporters of the bill rallied last night at Ward 7's Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church. Gray says he hasn't made up his mind on the bill yet, although statements from Deputy Mayor Victor Hoskins and threats from Walmart to pull out of proposed stores in the mayor's home Ward 7 point toward a veto.

    The Mr. Binney Funeral Humiliates The Reputation Of The United States Supreme Court. The lack of historical analysis evident in every judicial opinion which has discussed ObamaÂ’s eligibility is staggering. If you compare Judge MalihiÂ’s recent opinion in Georgia, and the Ankeny case from Indiana, to important citizenship decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, it becomes clear what separates the men from the boys. In a word; research. U.S. Supreme Court opinions dodge nothing. Every issue is confronted head on. Every argument is taken into consideration, and even if they twist the facts and law to make it condone a...

    Justice Horace Gray’s opinion in U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark has provided the basis for 14th Amendment citizenship since 1898. But history must record the fact that Gray, whether aware of it or not, had a greater personal stake in the outcome of the case than any Supreme Court justice ever has had in a case…and by a very wide margin. Gray’s appointment came at the hands of Chester Arthur. Back in Dec. ’08, this blog exposed the fact that Arthur’s father didn’t become a citizen of the United States until 1843, when Chester was 14 years old. Therefore, Chester...

Below, you will be privy to a true and proper revision of United States Supreme Court history. One of the foundational building blocks for Justice Gray’s opinion in U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark is the case, McCreery v. Somerville, 22 US 354 (1824), to which Gray made a fatally flawed assumption based upon his failure to acknowledge a judicially recognized misquote. Then, Justice Gray compounded his initial error by creating a separately deceptive quotation. These errors...

    Gray spared, but he accepts ‘responsibility’ for misstepsThe administration of D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray engaged in cronyism, paid salaries above legal caps and illegally hired the children of senior officials, according to the findings of a D.C. Council investigation released Tuesday. While the draft report by the council’s Special Committee on Investigation of Executive Personnel Practices found “clear evidence” of such practices by the Gray team, the mayor was largely spared. The report states most of the blame for personnel errors “falls squarely” on the staffers who were responsible for hiring political appointees, then placing them in agencies: Judy...

    MONROE, Wash. -- Special federal agents are investigating a local gun range suspected of serving as a militia training camp, according to court documents. Owner Jim Faire says he can't afford to run a background check on every visitor because his outdoor gun range is a nonprofit business. As a result, he said, county officials and the FBI have begun cracking down on the range after a convicted felon was caught with guns and drugs there. With thousands of shells littered across the ground, the gun range is now closed. Neighbors are glad to have the quiet, but they never...

Gray water may be one option, said Dr. Bruce Lesikar, Texas Cooperative Extension agricultural engineer. Gray water is the water that has passed through showers, sinks, bathtubs or washing machines, Lesikar said. It makes up about half of the water used in the home and normally passes into onsite wastewater treatment systems or city sewer systems. "The typical resident will have about 30 gallons per person per day," he said. Gray water is a...

    Blood, Iron, and Gray HairAnemia in old age is a rising concern Ben Harder The life of a red blood cell is brief but fast paced. Each heartbeat pumps millions of the tiny cells into the body's vascular system at speeds of more than a meter per second. In about a minute, they can carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues in the rest of the body and return to the lungs. And they die before they're 4 months old. The body replaces old red blood cells by generating fresh ones, typically producing about 2 million cells per second. A...

The alpha scrambled to his feet, but too late. Howling and barking, the enemy chased him down and mercilessly attacked, killing the hapless victim within a couple of minutes.

    WASHINGTON -- Mark Felt, finally revealed as the "Deep Throat" who divulged the Watergate scandal, is wearing the hero's laurel 32 years later. But that designation comes across as peculiar to those of us who lived through the turbulent times. Felt deserves praise for breaking the rules as FBI associate director, providing Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post the guidance to determine whether they were on the correct path in uncovering the machinations of President Nixon. However, Felt was considered by reformers at the FBI to be part of the problem rather than the solution. He was...

The Colorado State University professor, known for his annual predictions, will be the closing speaker Friday at the 27th annual National Hurricane Conference. Hurricane activity began increasing 10 years ago after a slack period of about 25 years. "We think it's the ocean circulation patterns," Gray said in an interview.

This is a period of our history unmatched in its preponderance of mind-control mechanisms meant to manipulate public opinion and fool people into believing what is black is white, what is white is black, and gray is all that matters. Every day I hear people parrot what they ingest from the mainstream media, foolishly believing they are informed and are paying attention. I learned some time ago that lies and deception are not...

    No one could say that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger lacks energy. His energy policy, however, has been lacking. Schwarzenegger came to power in last year's dramatic recall election after former Gov. Gray Davis came to grief over the state's budget and electric power crises. By now, everyone knows how Schwarzenegger has resorted to some of the borrowing and bookkeeping gimmicks that gradually got Davis in hot water with voters. But overlooked are the potential parallels to Davis' inattention to a brewing energy crisis. The electric power crisis of 2001 seemed to come on suddenly but in reality brewed for more than...

    On Saturday we traveled from our home in Lakewood to Simi Valley to visit friends and accompany them to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. They have struck up a friendship with an extraordinary person who is a docent at the Library and we couldn’t resist the promise of a private tour. The tour was wonderful. The grounds magnificent, the exhibits awe inspiring including the replica of the Oval Office. Then we got to the Lewis and Clark exhibition. There were canoes and a authentic reproduction of one of their Keel Boats, an Indian village, the supplies and trinkets they carried...

    U-Haul Economics by Rick Ackerman A Chicago economist has come up with an interesting and seemingly plausible new economic indicator. We’ve all heard stories about the exodus of U-Haul vans from California, but the details are usually too sketchy to tell us much. Turns out they can be quantified in dollars and cents so that the flow of traffic reveals which U.S. regions are hurting and which are prospering. For instance, while it costs $1,080 to rent a 26-foot U-Haul truck for a one-way trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the rental going in the opposite direction is just...

    <p>Sacramento -- Days after being recalled, Gov. Gray Davis quietly appointed dozens of political supporters and top staffers to lucrative slots on state boards and commissions.</p> <p>The appointments were not announced in press releases, as is customary, and only came to light Thursday in the relatively obscure weekly history of action published by the Senate, which still must vote on confirming the nominations.</p>

    Crockett wants California's governor to speak at the Carquinez Bridge grand opening next month. Officials just don't know whose name to put on the invitation. Will it be Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger's first official ribbon-cutting? Or will it be Gov. Gray Davis' swan song? The grand-opening party date of Nov. 15 coincides with the deadline for the Secretary of State to certify the recall election results. The certification could occur sooner, and many believe it will. But in the past 31 years, it has taken an average of 38 to 39 days, which falls on Nov. 14 and 15.
  • The route is hazardous, so don't switch governors in mid-stream, by: Gray Davis

    <p>California's governor is the leader of the nation's largest state and the world's sixth largest economy.</p> <p>If this recall succeeds, a replacement candidate with unknown positions on the issues and well-less than a majority of the vote would take office almost immediately. More than the first 30 days of his term would be consumed by efforts to just get on his feet -- not conducting the business of government.</p>
