  • DOD Report Highlights Administration Incoherence on China

    Whether it is the delayed release of the 2011 Department of Defense (DOD) report on Chinese military and security developments or Vice President Joe Biden’s statements regarding Chinese human rights, it is becoming clear that the Obama Administration has an utterly incoherent view of the People’s Republic of China. Biden apparently sees his statement (“Your policy has been one which I fully understand—I’m not second-guessing—of one child per family”) as actually arguing against the Chinese policy. Similarly, even as the Administration was signaling, just before the Vice President’s trip, that it was not going to sell Taiwan badly needed F-16...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The following are highlights from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's press conference on Wednesday after the central bank's monetary policy committee meeting. This is the first regularly scheduled press conference by a Fed chief. In a statement following the meeting, the Fed said it would finish its $600 billion bond-buying program in June as scheduled, and repeated its plans to keep interest rates low for an "extended period." ON FED TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY: "It used to be that the mystique of central banking was all about not letting anybody know what you're doing. As recently as 1994 the...

    The network morning shows on Thursday failed to find any controversy in union protests from Wisconsin, ignoring the signs comparing Scott Walker, the state's Republican governor, to the Taliban, the Nazis and Hitler. Fox News, on the other hand, highlighted the attacks on "Mullah Walker." Wisconsin radio talk show host Vicki McKenna appeared on Your World With Neil Cavuto to discuss the battle over whether state employees will have to pay more for their pension and health care. Citing the attacks by liberals, she informed, "I have been called the Taliban, Hitler...I mean, anything that involves dictator, tyrants or genocide,...

    Monday, January 31, 2011 New USCCB Document Highlights Biblical Quotations in the Mass The Catholic Mass draws heavily from Scripture--in every prayer you hear quotations and allusions to biblical texts. In fact, last year I did a series presentations now available through Saint Joseph Communications here (shameless plug!) exploring the biblical backdrop for the prayers of the Mass.   Now the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has put out a footnoted version of the prayers of the new translation of the liturgy, alerting you to the Biblical background of each of the prayers.  Some examples: The response: "The Lord be...

    A soccer match played Friday between the Jordanian league's Al-Faisaly and Al-Wihdat ended in a 1:0 victory for Al-Wihdat. The real news, though, wasn't the score, but the skirmish that broke out, in which 250 fans and policemen were injured, after the wire fence that separates the spectators from the field collapsed. This wasn't just a clash between fans accompanied by stone-throwing, broken bones and arrests. It was a political battle pitting the Al-Wihdat fans, mostly of Palestinian descent, against the Al-Faisaly fans, mostly of Jordanian origin. This is not the first time a soccer match between these two teams...

    As the first family has traveled up and down the Eastern seaboard (and occasionally beyond) for various summer excursions, they’ve given us a number of picture-perfect moments. Remember when the president and Sasha took a dip in Panama City Beach, Fla.? Or how Michelle Obama strode through the streets of Marbella in southern Spain? Not to mention the almost-famous bike ride President Barack Obama took (in long pants!) at Martha's Vineyard. Malia made it to the Vineyard too; sadly, however, we didn’t get a peek of her at sleepaway camp. With summer coming to an end, POLITICO takes a look...

    New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's strategy for winning the Democratic presidential nomination against better funded and more famous rivals includes a focus on his Hispanic roots and leadership of a Western state. That explains why he chose to officially launch his presidential campaign Monday in California, a state with newfound prominence in the 2008 campaign. Richardson is hoping changes to the primary calendar that give new clout to several states with large Hispanic populations can increase his chances of victory. Among those new powerhouses are Nevada, Florida and California, the most delegate-rich state which will hold a primary Feb. 5....

    Rhode Island's independent-minded Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee (news, bio, voting record) confronted stiff opposition Tuesday in his bid for a second term, the latest race with a moderate targeted by his own party's hard-line critics. Nine states and Washington, D.C., were holding primary elections Tuesday, but Chafee's race has drawn the most attention as another test of the depth of anti-incumbent sentiment and the erosion of the political middle ground. Chafee has a remarkable amount of support from national Republicans, especially for a senator who has often been at odds with the party, bucking the administration on tax cuts, civil...

The two-minute movie introduces people to Mitchell Lawrence and the details of his case. The flash asks and then explains how an 18-year-old (he was 17 when arrested) who has never been in trouble before could be sentenced to two years in jail for selling such a minuscule amount of marijuana.

    DAMASCUS, Syria - The abduction of an Israeli soldier by Palestinian militants close to Syria is highlighting the strained relations between Washington and Damascus. The United States has been pushing Syria — which hosts leaders of the militant group Hamas — to exert pressure for the release of Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who was captured by Hamas-linked militants on June 25. But the Bush administration has had to send the message through third parties because political contacts between the two countries are almost nonexistent. "We don't have a whole lot of communication with the Syrian government at this moment. We have...

    WASHINGTON – When Rep.

"I do not have the authority or ability to award a contract to Mr. Wade's company and no single member of Congress, no matter how influential, can dictate to the armed services who will be awarded contracts," the Rancho Santa Fe Republican said during a June 23 news conference.
