    Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane will not face criminal charges after a woman claimed she was raped by the NHL player at his home near Buffalo in early August. Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III released the findings Thursday morning: The Town of Hamburg Police Department and the Office of the Erie County District Attorney have conducted an exhaustive investigation over the course of the past three months regarding allegations made by a 21 year-old woman that 26 year-old Patrick Kane raped her on his bed. The investigative findings include the following:

    Big Wind hides evidence of turbine bird kills and gets rewarded. Here is how they do it. In 1984 the California Energy Commission .. the primary environmental issue alluded to was the extreme hazard that wind turbines posed to raptors. ... Since the early 1980s, the industry has known there is no way its propeller-style turbines could ever be safe for raptors. With exposed blade tips spinning in open space at speeds up to 200 mph, it was impossible. Wind developers also knew they would have a public relations nightmare if people ever learned how many eagles are actually being...

    OAKLAND — What's one more week compared to a 40-year championship drought? What's one more week when it means a shot at the first title in franchise history? The Warriors eliminated the Rockets with a 104–90 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday, advancing to an NBA Finals date with the Cavaliers. This is a matchup worth waiting for, and a little patience will be required. Because both Golden State and Cleveland made quick work of their conference finals foes, the NBA will hit the pause button for a full week before the championship series opens...

    Jeff Sessions is the safest bet this year in the U.S. congressional midterm elections. The incumbent U.S. senator from Mobile was unopposed in the Republican primary on June 3. And on Nov. 4, he will be unopposed in the general election. That's a historic first, according to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News, a publication Winger has edited since 1985. A Republican has always been opposed by a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama since selection of U.S. senators was given to the voters in 1914, said Winger, 70, of San Francisco. (SNIP) Sessions mocked Adelson and former...

    In the past there were excuses for those inclined to ignore or deny the horrors the Democratic People's Republic of Korea routinely visits upon its subjects. Defectors have an ax to grind, we were told. American intelligence is making up stories, and Pyongyang's foreign enemies stand to profit from these tales. There is nowhere for North Korea's apologists to hide now. The 200,000-word, nearly 400-page report released Monday by the "commission of inquiry" for the United Nations Human Rights Council, led by the Australian jurist Michael Kirby, in effect presents the world with the black book on North Korean communism....

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday the U.S. intelligence community believes the Syrian regime used the chemical weapon sarin, a revelation that immediately raised the question of whether a "red line" had been crossed in the country's civil war. Hagel confirmed the intelligence assessment, which was detailed in a letter to select members of Congress, while speaking to reporters on a visit to Abu Dhabi. The administration swiftly released those letters, which said U.S. intelligence determined with varying degrees of confidence that "the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically the chemical agent sarin."...

    Obama’s Amazing AchievementsHis military intervention prompted some stunning reversals. By bombing Libya, President Obama has accomplished some things once thought absolutely impossible in America:(a) War-mongering liberals: Liberals are now chest-thumping about military “progress” in Libya. Even liberal television and radio commentators cite ingenious reasons why an optional, preemptive American intervention in an oil-producing Arab country, without prior congressional approval or majority public support — and at a time of soaring deficits — is well worth supporting, in a sort of “my president, right or wrong,” fashion. Apparently, liberal foreign policy is returning to the pre-Vietnam days of the hawkish “best...

Cary Grant exceeds in a John Wayne/Humphrey Bogart-type role as their leader and the beautiful Rita Hayworth impresses in one of her earliest performances as his ex-flame. Definitely one of Hawks' best and the finest of his 5 films starring Mr. Grant.

    Defense hawks in the Senate are in a holding pattern on a United Nations arms treaty that’s drawing strong opposition from the National Rifle Association over Second Amendment concerns. Several influential Republican defense hawks said Thursday they have to study the issue further before signing on to oppose it, despite a loud pressure campaign from the NRA. NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre on Wednesday told the U.N. conference negotiating the agreement that 58 senators have pledged to oppose the treaty if it covers civilian arms over fears that would infringe on the right to bear arms.

    The Kosovo conflict marked the start of a humanitarian hawk movement that advocated the use of military force to advance liberal values. However, Kosovo's formal declaration of independence shows how modest our accomplishments in Kosovo have been. With Kosovo's formal declaration of independence from Serbia on Monday, and the United States' decision to extend recognition to the planet's newest country, the time has come for a look back on the approximately 10 years of intense U.S. involvement in that conflict. Kosovo is a tiny, seemingly worthless patch of land lacking in all natural resources, but it plays a strangely large...

He will be made a deputy prime minister with responsibility for "strategic threats", particularly Iran. His sudden rise to power mirrors a shift to the right among the Israeli public in the wake of the Lebanon war.

Eisenhower's 1952 campaign features a black and white cartoon parade led by a smiling, banner-waving elephant, marching to the infectious, policy-free anthem: "You like Ike, I like Ike, Everybody likes Ike for President ..." This spot never fails...

    Cheer Up, HawksBy Charles RousseauxTechCentralStation.com | May 17, 2004 There's a hint of hopelessness in the air, understandable given the shocking images and casualty reports that continue to come out of Iraq. While the neurasthenic natterings of the likes of Maureen Dowd would be of little note, much of the debacle chatter is coming from the decoder-ring wielding members of the right wing conspiracy. It's as if a coterie of conservatives has taken out temporary memberships in the R.W. Apple Jr. quagmire club. Consider: In a recent Washington Post column, Robert Kagan wrote, "Bush administration officials have no clue what...

    Neo-Conservatism, Hard Core Analysis - By Jim Lobe If hard-core neo-conservatives Richard Perle and David Frum had their way, the Bush administration would be issuing ultimatums on virtually a daily basis. WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (IPS) - In their new book, 'An End to Evil: How to Win the War on Terror', Perle, the well-connected former chairman of the Defence Policy Board (DPB), and Frum, a former White House speechwriter, call for the administration to, among many other things: - Actively promote, presumably through direct action, the secession of the oil-rich eastern province of Saudi Arabia, unless the Saudi government provides...

    Asia Times ^ | January 13, 2004 | Richard Perle and David Frum
    Front Page The following are excerpts from the recently released book An End to Evil: How to Win the War on Terror by hardcore US neo-conservatives Richard Perle and David Frum. Perle is the well-connected former chairman of the US Defense Policy Board, while Frum is a former White House speechwriter. These excerpts deal specifically with Asia. Given Perle's very close relationships with senior hawks in the administration of President George W Bush, these positions probably quite accurately reflect what Vice President Dick Cheney and Pentagon civilians are arguing at the highest levels in the administration. North Korea The South...

    Hawks deliver manifesto to Bush Free Iran at ActivistChat.com! By David Rennie in Washington (Filed: 31/12/2003) President George W Bush was sent a public manifesto yesterday by Washington's hawks, demanding regime change in Syria and Iran and a Cuba-style military blockade of North Korea backed by planning for a pre-emptive strike on its nuclear sites. The manifesto, presented as a "manual for victory" in the war on terror, also calls for Saudi Arabia and France to be treated not as allies but as rivals and possibly enemies. The manifesto is contained in a new book by Richard Perle, a Pentagon...

    Let Bush Be Bush By Michael A. Ledeen Posted: Wednesday, December 17, 2003 ARTICLES New York Sun   Publication Date: December 17, 2003 As the Reagan years pass further back into time, both his enemies and his admirers are straining mightily to write the history the way they want it to have happened. In the process, those eight years are taking on almost mythical characteristics. The 'phobes see an ideologically driven administration almost psychotically obsessed with defeating communism; the 'philes see a simpatico human being who understood America perfectly and used American strengths to bring down the Soviet empire. It...
