    A few days after the CNBC presidential debate -- which the GOP campaigns called "horrendous," "stupid," and "ridiculous" -- the Republican National Committee has decided to suspend its plans to let NBC News host a debate on February 26.... Priebus also noted that the "moderators engaged in a series of 'gotcha' questions, petty and mean-spirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates. What took place Wednesday night was not an attempt to give the American people a greater understanding of our candidates' policies and ideas." He did not add that the American people would have also gained a fuller...

    US President Barack Obama's administration is scrambling to quell concerns ahead of a Congressional review of the impending Iran nuclear deal that is approaching a June 30 deadline, but one US Senator reports Obama is refusing to reveal a document detailing the full scope of the deal. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that he and other Senators are trying to obtain a document with the exact details of what the administration has already agreed to - but their requests are being refused.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A real estate investment by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi's husband went undisclosed for years and has opened a window into a loophole that allows House members to avoid specifying some of their financial assets. In 2010 and 2011, Pelosi voluntarily reported the Sacramento, Calif., land investment as an asset of her multimillionaire husband, Paul. She had not reported the investment for about 10 years previously because it was held by an S corporation her husband had set up, said Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for the California congresswoman. Under House financial disclosure rules, lawmakers are not obligated...

    Sudan accused Israel yesterday of launching a missile strike on its territory on Tuesday - an attack that demolished a car and killed its two passengers. Israel did not comment on the attack or the accusations. (Snip) Israeli defense officials have accused Sudan of enabling Iran to smuggle arms through its territory in convoys, via Egypt, to the Gaza Strip. Sudanese officials describe the attack as being targeted against a specific person. But sending an aerial force to such a remote destination to kill one lone militant appears to be unusual.

Together with recent findings on other viruses, the work suggests that all viruses may be much older than thought. No one knows exactly where or when viruses originated.

Here's the definition of "bunker mentality from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Allusions: In politics, a "bunker mentality" is an embattled frame of mind, often accompanied by an aggrieved sense of being unfairly under attack. The term is most often applied to American Presidents who suffer political reverses and assume a surly, defensive posture - all critics are enemies; if you're not for us you're against us; etc. Sound familiar? How about last week when the President went on the Today show and - no, I'm not going to...

The message from the Shabaab stops short of supporting piracy, but it goes to great lengths in saying that the official position of the al Qaeda affiliated group is that they have not condemned the hijacking of a Saudi oil tanker, which kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it?

    I contributed a little acorn to the 2004 election. I use the acorn metaphor because the outcome of what I did seemed to take on a life of its own and grew beyond any of my expectations. In fact the ripples continue to this day. A brief history of my experience begins in August of 2004. A friend sent me an email about John Kerry’s Navy experiences. I am a Navy veteran so I took a look at the issue. It soon became obvious to me that John Kerry was hiding something about his military experience, so I decided to...

    WESTERN IRAQ -- "These Marines are great. America ought to be very proud of its Marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen; they're doing great work out here." So Marine Col. Stephen Davis, the commander of Regimental Combat Team 2 (RCT-2), told me once we had a chance to talk near al Qaim, Iraq. Davis is in charge of Operation Matador, an effort to bring law and order to the bulk of Iraq's vast, western al Anbar province, which makes up one-third of the country. What these Marines are doing now near the Syrian border is what they did months ago in...

    HOUR 9 ^ | 4/29/05
    A recent Reuters article focused on judicial nominees. The basis of the article was that the liberals had decided to possibly renominate selected nominees to be confirmed provided votes on other selected nominees were not allowed. In other words, we have always been the majority parity, ran Washington, deserve to control, and this is no different. Clinton nominated 9 judges after Bush had been seated but before he left office, this was this first and only time in history any outgoing president had attempted such. Bush withdrew all and later renominated one who was confirmed. Clinton’s confirmation percentage in his...

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Mark Dayton claimed Wednesday that Republicans left him off a fact-finding trip to Iraq because of partisan politics. Dayton, D-Minn., said he suspected he was left off the Senate Armed Services Committee trip either because Republicans were targeting him for defeat in 2006, or because of his opposition to the war in Iraq.

    I have had reports Bin Laden made a deal with China and had been hiding in Turkestan with an agreement to wipe out anti-Beijing rebels in exchange for sanctuary. Have also heard US Special Forces and Pakistani special ops soldiers have been waiting at the border just waiting to pounce after diplomacy arranges an okay to strike across the border. The ten-car convoy was spotted by a couple of cruising Indian Air Force jet pilots, who went in for a closer look. Between October 17 and October 19, an Indian air force reconnaissance plane picked him up in the Tibet-Laddakh...

    Is Osama bin Laden alive or dead? And if Osama is alive, where is he? "President Bush knows damn well that (bin Laden) has been dead for quite some time," said former Navy SEAL Matthew Heidt, echoing the sentiments of many in the special operations community. "(Bin Laden) has not been heard from since Tora Bora despite developments in the Global War on Terror that make it unthinkable for him to remain silent," Heidt said in his web log, "Froggy Ruminations." The last audiotape purportedly from bin Laden (but not authenticated) was issued on May 7th of this year. But...

    DEMOCRAT John Kerry today takes his quest for votes to the western states of Nevada and Colorado that polls show could be up for grabs in the US presidential contest, as incumbent rival George W. Bush stumps in three eastern battleground states. After addressing supporters in Milwaukee in the morning, Senator Kerry was to fly to Reno, Nevada, and Pueblo, Colorado, in hopes of energising minority voters, his core support base, ahead of the November 2 ballot. Mr Bush will campaign for a second day in Pennsylvania before moving on to Canton, Ohio and Saint Petersburg, Florida. Senator Kerry literally...

    It has now been one month and four days since John Kerry last answered questions from a real reporter. Can he go all the way to election day without telling us whether his "searing" memory of being in Cambodia is true? Or why every eyewitness disagrees with his claims of enemy fire during the incident he used to obtain his first Purple Heart? Or why his Silver Star mysteriously has a V for valor, in contradiction to Navy regulations? Or why he won't file form 180 and release his military records? Or why he won't make his journals, which form...

    Translation from Hebrew to English by me Arab diplomatic sources in Amman claim that the leadership of Hamas in Damascus have left the city, because of the harshing of the Israeli words coming after the terror attack in Beer-Sheva. Among the terrorist leaders who live in Damascus is Haled Mashal, the head of the political office of the terrorist organization. The newspaper "A-Sherek Al-Oset" reports that a group of Hamas officials have moved to living in Beirut, under the sponsorship of Hizbullah officials, and another group has moved to Qatar. Syrian sources said in response that "there has not been...

    MY BROTHER, John Kerry, decided to volunteer to put his life on the line to serve his country in Vietnam. A lot of guys dodged service, but not my brother John. As Bill Clinton pointed out not long ago, when push came to shove, a lot of young men found other alternatives, but not my brother John. He volunteered for service and he went to Vietnam, and by every official US Navy account, he acquitted himself heroically. I watched my brother put his life on the line in service to our country as so many sisters and brothers, parents, and...
