    There's a lot about Ted Cruz that should worry constitutionalists considering voting for the senator in the presidential election of 2016.Recently, Infogram published brief but illuminating biographies of several of Cruz's key foreign policy advisors. The information disclosed in these revelations could trouble many constitutionalists otherwise keen on the senator and who rely on him to restore the rule of law to the White House.The first person highlighted in the article is the chairman of Cruz's foreign policy team, Chad Sweet.Sweet's professional and political background betrays Cruz's claims of being someone who promises "not to continue going in the same...
  • Super PAC backing Jeb Bush unlikely to hit $100 million by end of June (The Meltdown continues...)

    Washington Post ^ | 6/9/15 | Matea Gold and Tom Hamburger
    A super PAC backing former Florida governor Jeb Bush is likely to fall short of collecting $100 million by the end of this month, despite widespread expectations that the group would hit that record-breaking sum, according to people close to the operation. The exact size of the war chest is closely held, but two individuals familiar with internal discussions believe the total that the Right to Rise super PAC will report in mid-July could be substantially lower than the nine figures that senior Republicans have anticipated. That would be a major psychological blow for Bush’s operation, whose fundraising prowess has...

    Burned Georgia Tech student dies from injuries The Georgia Tech graduate student burned over 90 percent of his body last month died Thursday, the Institute said. Saamer Akhshabi was burned in a Feb. 4 explosion inside his apartment, where investigators found a suspected Molotov cocktail and several plastic bottles filled with gasoline and kerosene. Akhshabi, 26, was transported in critical condition to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died early Thursday, Georgia Tech shared with the campus. "We have worked closely with other law enforcement agencies during the investigation of this tragic incident," Robert Connolly, interim police chief for Georgia Tech,...

    The object that North Korea sent into space early Thursday appears to be “tumbling out of control” as it orbits the earth, U.S. officials told NBC News. The officials said that it is indeed some kind of space vehicle but they still haven’t been able to determine exactly what the satellite is supposed to do. In a statement, the White House said the rocket launch was a highly provocative act that threatens regional security and violates U.N. resolutions. The United Nations Security Council on Thursday condemned the launch, calling it a "clear violation" of U.N. resolutions. A spokesman for U.N....

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Turns out the Buffalo Bills didn't need to actually contain quarterback Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles. All they had to do was watch and wait for this so-called "Dream Team" to start unraveling all on its own. Graziano Juqua Parker shouldn't have jumped. Michael Vick's interceptions hurt. But Dan Graziano says it's all Andy Reid's fault in Philly. At first, the Bills were just a surprise winner. They've since morphed into a serious contender, writes James Walker. Running back Fred Jackson combined for 196 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, and linebacker Nick Barnett had...

"Had that type of information been made available," said Gibbs. "She would not have participated in the event here." Macko, a Charlottesville resident, stood next to President Obama as his example of the need to extend jobless benefits.

    As Sen. Scott Brown sweeps into his new office, it’s the end of the line for several of Sen. Paul Kirk’s staffers who are being ushered out of jobs a week earlier than expected. Kirk staffers weren’t talking today, but friends and colleagues of the group say some of the staffers were upset by the accelerated swearing in date. One Democratic colleague said the “carpet was pulled out” from preparations for a day that already promised to be emotional. Kirk’s office had worked for weeks to turn over the beloved Russell 317 office suite to Brown by Feb. 11, welcoming...

    Women can be cruel, and they often do cruel things to men. Despite their reputation as the fairer sex, when it comes to relationships, sometimes women can be downright nasty. It seems like a reverse sexism started to take hold as the feminist movement came about and equality for women began gaining ground. Some women use their girl-power solidarity to come to a consensus on what’s socially acceptable for women to do to men in a relationship. They’ve agreed among themselves that these behaviors are perfectly justifiable regardless of how they play with a guy’s emotions or ego. With that,...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will cut 700 to 800 jobs at its northwestern Arkansas headquarters as it builds fewer new stores this year and makes other operational changes, the world's largest retailer announced Tuesday. The cuts are in Wal-Mart's real estate, apparel and health and wellness departments, spokesman David Tovar said. Wal-Mart would not say how many jobs will be cut in each segment. Tovar said employees will be told of the cuts in the next couple of weeks and there was no immediate plan to make other positions within Wal-Mart available to them. But he...

    Nissan Motor Company (NSANY: 6.07, -0.14, -2.25%) rocked the auto industry on Monday as it reported a quarterly loss and announced plans to cut 20,000 jobs. The auto maker reported a third quarter loss of 83.2 billion yen, or $904 million, compared with gains of $132.2 billion yen in the same period a year prior. Nissan, Japan’s third-largest auto manufacturer, also announced plans to lay off 20,000 workers, or 8.5% of its work force worldwide. This would leave the company with a staff of around 215,000 workers by 2010. -snip-

According to a report carried out in, this fact was revealed by audit figures from pitch consultants TrinityP3, who estimated that Australian television advertising is producing as much as 57 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hour, with thirty second ad breaks being among the worst offenders. Adding lime to seawater could cut back carbon levels Carbon emissions are particularly strong during high-rating programs such as the final episodes of the Ten Network’s Biggest Loser, which produced 2135kgs per 30-second ad, So You Think...

    "This election," Bill Clinton said in the hours before the Pennsylvania primary, "is too big to be small." It was a noble sentiment, succinctly stated, and the core of what Democrats believe — that George W. Bush has been a historic screwup as President, that there are huge issues to be confronted this year. But it was laughable as well. The Pennsylvania primary had been a six-week exercise in diminution, with both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — and Bill Clinton too — losing altitude and esteem on an almost daily basis. Even as he spoke, the former President was...

    The National Organization for Women’s New York chapter issued a scathing reaction to Sen. Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton. Actually, the word “scathing” feels inadequate here. Read for yourself: “Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few.

When Obama, the dinner’s last speaker, took the stage the crowd surged forward chanting “O-bam-a” and “Fired Up, Ready to Go!” So many people pressed toward the stage that an announcer asked people to “please take their seats for safety concerns.” By comparison Hillary was twice booed. The first time was when she said she has always and will continue to work for "change for you. The audience, particularly from Obama supporters (they were waving Obama signs) let out a...

That wouldn't be blogworthy if not for Korge's title as chairman of Democrat Rod Smith's campaign for governor.

He added: "I've known Tom Gallagher for 20 years, and maybe I shouldn't say this, but I didn't object to the checks.'' Korge is a Democratic party soldier who has raised lots...

The soup kitchen, set up at the harbour of this Riviera town, draws about as many protesters as poor people. Police stand guard between it and a Catholic charity group distributing vegetable soup outside their church. Dominique Lescure, head of the small ultra-nationalist group...

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. For decades, the American farm lobby has been duped by the Big Business lobby and "free trade" ideologues into supporting trade agreements that have opened the U.S. market to foreign rivals and that have allowed transnational corporations to shift factories and jobs overseas. Farmers have been content to watch their neighbors in manufacturing devastated so long as their own position was protected. Now, it is the farmers' turn to be thrown to the wolves in the Doha Round of negotiations, which hinge on the 'liberalization" of international agricultural trade and the...

    BOYS may be outperformed by girls at school but there is a glimmer of hope for them. Researchers claim to have found scientific proof that men can think faster than women. Their study found that men's brain cells could transmit nerve impulses faster than women's – potentially giving males the intellectual edge. The claim will add fuel to the debate recently triggered by Larry Summers, the president of Harvard University, who challenged the prevailing wisdom when he suggested women were innately less able than men in subjects such as maths and science. The new study is likely to prompt similar...

But these days, judging by several best-selling books in France and the tone of a self-effacing discourse on national radio and television and in newspapers, the country has begun to again broach the subject of its own decline. The discussion touches on the loss of influence in the spheres of politics, economics, art, film, diplomacy, and even language. Even...
