    People in California, New Jersey and 15 other states found themselves temporarily unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by the vendor Xerox resulted in a system failure. Illinois residents began reporting problems with their cards — known as LINK — on Saturday morning, said Januari Smith, a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Human Services. “It really is a bad situation, but they are working to get it fixed as soon as possible,” she said.

    The House Judiciary Committee voted against a measure on Jan. 13, that was previously introduced by Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., that would have required the Department of Justice (DOJ) to explain to Congress why it dismissed a voter intimidation case involving members of the New Black Panther Party at a polling place in Philadelphia in November 2008. Mr. Wolf, the top Republican on the House Appropriations subcommittee that funds DOJ, introduced a “resolution of inquiry” in December. The measure, H. Res. 994, was defeated 15-14 on a party-line vote. “I am deeply disappointed that Judiciary Committee defeated my resolution of...

Glenn Beck and I exposed how radical White House Internet czar Susan Crawford was in 2009 and she resigned. Unfortunately, in 2010 her former colleagues appear undaunted in their efforts to take over the Internet.

    The Obama administration is considering levying a fee on banks, which would recoup taxpayer funds spent to rescue the financial sector and auto companies, according to administration officials. The proposal is still under discussion and no final decision has been made as to what form it might take. The concept is expected to be included in next month's budget, even without specific details, and as such could also be presented as a way to reduce the U.S.'s large deficit. One option discussed involves placing a fee on a bank's liabilities, a number that theoretically represents the amount of risk a...

The email states: NO ANNUAL COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT (COLA) WILL BE ADDED TO MILITARY RETIRED PAY IN 2010. DUE TO RECENT LEGISLATION YOUR FEDERAL WITHHOLDING TAX HAS CHANGED. After much investigating and several discussions with the IRS, it appears the Democrats have played a “cash-flow trick” on working Americans and are taking more out of American’s paychecks across the board–all the while touting the Making Work Pay tax credit.

The senior Administration official, who asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information, said that nowhere in this document was there any mention of Yemen, whose Al-Qaeda affiliate is now believed to have been behind the unsuccessful Christmas Day attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to bring down a transatlantic airliner with a bomb hidden in his...

Well, no, according to an unnamed staffer who is quoted at American Spectator: "The idea was that we'd show that the Bush Administration had had far worse missteps than we ever could," says a staffer in the counsel's office.

    Dec 27, 5:30 PM (ET) WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence officials have concluded an audiotape on which Osama bin Laden urges Iraqis to boycott January's elections is likely genuine, an official said on Monday.

Sound quality on the tape is not very high, the official added. The speaker on the tape, excerpts of which were broadcast by Arabic television channel Al Jazeera, also praised attacks by al Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi on U.S. troops...

    The Iraq Survey Group recovered this recording of Saddam and senior officials discussing the use of WMD. This discussion was part of a more general meeting that appears to have taken place during the second week of January, 1991. This is of particular interest as it provides a compelling demonstration of Saddam's personal interest and involvement in WMD planning and preparation. Saddam: I was talking to 'Abd and I told him there is no need to make a big fuss about these suits because we are going to use them in this special occasion, even if it is a Chinese...

    President Bush spoke about education reform at the KIPP DC: KEY Academy, a charter school, in Washington today. He renewed his push for school-vouchers, backing legislation that would give District of Columbia children private-school tuition grants and hopefully spark new momentum nationwide for such programs. He also spoke during a military re-enlistment event thanking American servicemen and women for their service in the armed forces at a ceremony in the East Room of the White House. He reassured the nation that despite mounting American deaths in Iraq, U.S. troops are still needed there to keep the nation from falling back...

    NBC WarshDC | January 18 2003 | NBC local outlet in WarshDC
    The NBC local affiliate reporterette out looking for background color from supposed anti-war protestors coming to DC today found, LO & BEHOLD, "FREEPERS"!!!At approximately 9 AM today, just after the top of the hour weather report, brave FREEPERS on the MALL were interviewed. They reported that the people coming today weren't really anti-war protestors but instead represented any number of terrorist organizations including organizations whose members have murdered Americans.The truth came out and the reporterette (clearly of a Democrat orientation) found herself without any follow-up questions. The woman was totally flabbergasted to hear what was really happening.
