  • Report: Obama Heading to L.A. to ‘Reassure’ Hollywood Donors After Debate Performance

    The Blaze ^ | October 7, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern
    President Barack Obama’s fundraising trip to Los Angeles this weekend will provide a boost to his campaign coffers — and also an opportunity to soothe his Hollywood supporters left shaken after his widely-panned debate performance against Republican rival Mitt Romney. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sunday night’s star-studded concert and $25,000-per-plate dinner will now have Obama “reassuring” his donors that he’s still committed to victory and ready for Romney in round two. As the Reporter noted, the entertainment industry has been a lucrative fountain for the president to tap this campaign cycle, but there is “no doubt” the Hollywood crowd...
  • ‘Can You Imagine Bush Talking about Shrum?’

    The Corner National Review ^ | October 12, 2010 | Robert Costa
    Ed Gillespie tells National Review Online that President Obama’s demonization of political operatives reeks of desperation. “Can you imagine former president Bush talking about Bob Shrum?” he laughs. “It is just remarkable that he is so willing to diminish the office. It’s starting to look like the Oval Office is swallowing him up.” Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, singled out Gillespie, the longtime Republican strategist and former counselor to Pres. George W. Bush, by name on Wednesday. At an afternoon press briefing, Gibbs cited Gillespie, along with fellow former Bush adviser Karl Rove, as a Republican leader involved...

    Now that the two parties have finally selected their presidential candidates, it is time for a sober — if not grim — assessment of where we are. Not since 1972 have we been presented with two such painfully inadequate candidates. When Election Day came that year, I could not bring myself to vote for either George McGovern or Richard Nixon. I stayed home. This year, none of us has that luxury. While all sorts of gushing is going on in the media, and posturing is going on in politics, the biggest national sponsor of terrorism in the world — Iran...
  • Why Clinton Blew His Top: FNC's Wallace Only Interviewer to Ask About Pre-9/11 Failures

    NewsBusters ^ | September 24, 2006 | Rich Noyes
    By now, nearly everybody who cares has probably seen former President Bill Clinton's -- let's say 'animated' -- response to 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace's questions about his administration's failed efforts to demolish al-Qaeda before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But Wallace himself hit on the key media bias question ... Trying to explain Clinton's hot reaction, Wallace said he read the transcripts of the ex-President's other media appearances in the last few days -- on NBC's 'Meet the Press,' CNN's 'Larry King Live,' FNC's 'On the Record with Greta van Susteren,' among other programs. Wallace said he was "astonished"...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    bopnews ^ | Hale Stewart
    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Lobster. The Journal of Parapolitics ^ | 10/29/05 | Peter Dale Scott
    Concluding Question: The Meta-Group and the United States Government It seems clear that the meta-group, with its influential connections on at least three continents, was powerful enough to effect changes, through the Russian 9/11, in Russian history. The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Gas costs so much. I cant afford it. Why want Bush do something? Don't say he can't. His daddy or his handlers could be on the phone in 2 minutes with the Rothchilds and by 1 week, oil prices would be under $20 and gas would be 1 dollar a gallon. You know it and I know it. Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.

    Pentagon must improve long-term reserve planning, report says By David McGlinchey dmcglinchey@govexec.com The Defense Department has been making its recent personnel decisions and reservist mobilizations with a short-term focus that could compromise the nation's long-term military goals, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released this week. "Faced with some critical shortages, [Defense] changed a number of its personnel policies to increase force availability," according to the report (GAO-04-1031). "These changes addressed immediate needs and did not take place within a strategic framework that linked human capital goals with [Defense's] organizational goals to fight the global war on terrorism."...

Translations of @ Czech: zavinac (pickled herring) Russian: sobachka (little dog) Italian: Chiocciola (small snail) Hebrew: strudel (Austrian cake) Until now, the French have had a choice between "arobase", a popular word derived from the Spanish, and - for the anglophile - "at". But the General Commission for Terminology and Neologisms - the government body charged with coining new French words - has decided that the proper word should be "arrobe". However there are no guarantees that...

    They talk about when — not if — the next catastrophic terrorist attack will happen on American soil. They issue warnings that in all likelihood the next assault will result in even greater casualties and more widespread disruption than resulted from September 11. And they make it clear that in many important respects, America is unprepared. After more than a year without a new attack, they say that there are signs that Americans are lapsing into complacency. And they point to a big distraction ahead, in the shape of a war with Iraq, that could consume all the nation’s attention...
