There’s a lot of promises. But there seems to be no mechanism for getting countries to comply other than wagging your finger at them and...

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is once again the target of criticism, direct and indirect, by Israeli leaders after he suggested that Israel could face "delegitimization" and "boycott" campaigns without a peace deal with the Palestinians. That remark, made Saturday at the Munich Security Conference, prompted Economy Minister Naftali Bennett to slam Kerry: "We expect our friends around the world to stand beside us, against anti-Semitic boycott efforts targeting Israel, and not for them to be their amplifier," Bennett said on Saturday evening.

The one they’re working on now is about Sarah Jessica Parker fundraising for Barack Obama in New York City.

Per the source, Kerry meant to say that he can't "overstress the importance of a great education" and that "if you don't study, if you aren't smart, if you're intellectually lazy... You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq." Kerry mistakenly dropped the "getting us" from his initial remarks.

    WASHINGTON - In the battle for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, no one is running harder than Mark Warner. The former Virginia governor has a lot going for him: he is tireless and engaging; he talks about policy and international affairs with verve and a grasp of detail. In a 30-minute interview, he comes across as an affable all-American guy who made a fortune in the cell phone business and happens to have an insatiable interest in politics. At the end of his four years as governor, Governing magazine gave his administration an A- grade for its management of money...

    Dear Friend, Last week we released a sneak preview of the Governor Mark Warner podcast. Watch the new episodes: "Proven Progressive" and "Power of Technology" and learn more about subscribing to the Mark Warner podcast.

All episodes are presented in both video and audio only formats. Now you can watch or listen to each episode in your web browser, on your portable mp3 player, or in...
  • email from Mark Warner on global warming

    Dear Friend, How America really achieves energy independence is long overdue at the forefront of our national debate. It was remarkable to me that the President finally acknowledged in his State of the Union this year that we have an addiction to fossil fuels and that it hurts America’s security. Download the video: It makes no sense that we borrow money from China -- and then spend that money to buy oil from countries across the world that generally don’t like us. We need a whole new approach. We must recognize this when we talk about energy policy. It...

    April 22, 2006 -- HOORAY! Today is Earth Day, the annual celebration of bluebirds and bumblebees and greener-than-thou liberals who worship the planet, except when it is personally inconvenient. Environmental empress Julia Roberts, for example, adorns the cover of the latest issue of Vanity Fair - its special "Green Issue." She's got up as a woodlands fairy along with Bobby Kennedy Jr. and the irrepressible Al "Global Warming" Gore. Inside, readers learn all about Roberts: "From the Prius she drives and the solar-powered house she's building in California to the metal cup she uses when she goes out for coffee,...

    Katie Turns Off BS Detector as Kerry Trumpets Bogus Stats Posted by Rich Noyes on February 1, 2006 - 11:20. Massachusetts Senator John Kerry must be thinking how fortunate he was that there were no real journalists in the room -- just perky Katie Couric -- when he appeared on NBC’s Today to complain about President Bush’s State of the Union address. As NewsBusters’ Mark Finkelstein noted earlier, Couric did ask a couple of pointed questions, at one point asking Kerry if there “was there anything you appreciated or liked hearing” in Bush’s speech. But when Kerry started inventing statistics...
