    The White House’s deputy press secretary today downplayed Muslim attacks on Christians in Egypt, joking about the savagery that has left at least six Christians dead. Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ correspondent, Ed Henry, if President Barack Obama has a “red line” beyond which he would act against Muslim attacks on Egyptian Christians. “Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today,” Earnest joked. fter making his joke, Earnest said the administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and other marked Christian sites. Many Christians’ shops...

    The president appears to be loving the whole Obama-wasn’t-born-here myth. At a lunch on Capitol Hill on St. Patrick’s Day, Obama told an audience that included plenty of Republicans that “some are still bent on peddling rumors about my origins.” But he wasn’t talking about what you’d think he was alluding to: “Now, speaking of ancestry, there has been some controversy about my own background. Two years into my presidency, some are still bent on peddling rumors about my origins. So today, I want to put all those rumors to rest. It is true my great-great-great-grandfather really was from Ireland....

    President Obama yukked it up again when he discussed the economy on "60 Minutes" last night, prompting his interviewer to ask whether leading the nation during a recession has made him "punch drunk." The president laughed he later called it "gallows humor" at several points, particularly when he talked about pumping more money into General Motors and Chrysler. "I just want to say that the only thing less popular than putting money into banks is putting money into the auto industry," he said. Interviewer Steve Kroft interjected, "You're sitting here. And you are laughing. You are laughing about some of...
  • Kingship of Christ, Queenship of Mary in Scripture(Catholic Caucus)

    Kingship of Christ, Queenship of Mary in Scripture Far back in the dim mists of ancient times, so far back, that we are not even certain of the century, in the strange land of Egypt, which thought gods had human bodies but animal heads, there lay dying the last of the great three Patriarchs, Jacob. His son, sold into slavery by his brothers for 20 pieces of silver, had by divine inspiration risen to be Vizier, second in power in all the land. The great Pharaoh - whose name we know not - had invited him to bring his father...

    COMMENTARY One Million Turn Out to See Rolling Stones Bash Bush in Rio By Political Satirist Chris Davis Feb 20, 2006 Rio de Janeiro—The Rolling Stones, a geriatric rock group, left a million fans satisfied and spent on Copacabana Beach after Saturday's free performance to bash President George W. Bush while playing some rock 'n roll. Boats, including a huge ocean liner, crowded the shoreline, and helicopters and blimps circled overhead during the show that shut down the Copacabana Beach district.  Large monitors flashed the peace symbol while others flashed, "War is not my voice.  Don't invade the world, Bush!"...

    WASHINGTON - Just kidding. John Kerry (news - web sites) told a Detroit radio station on Friday he'd name his running mate "in a matter of days," throwing the Washington rumor mill into high gear. Later in the day, he grinned when told that his interview was taken seriously. "All you have you do is listen to it," Kerry said aboard his campaign plane. "It was plain (that it was a joke). Don't ever write about me being dour and sober and somber." "There is no announcement imminent," Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said. "And we won't have more to say...

    ROME - Three passengers aboard a KLM flight from Amsterdam to Rome were detained Sunday after one of them allegedly said the aircraft was being hijacked, then quickly said it was all a joke, an airline official said. "Yes, it was a joke, but in these times we don't find that kind of joke so funny," KLM spokesman Bart Koster told The Associated Press in Amsterdam. "We handed them directly over to Italian police and it's up to them what else will happen, if anything." Authorities at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport confirmed that three men were being held, but...
