    The Liberal Agenda: On the heels of Sunday's "People's Climate Change" march came Monday's "Flood Wall Street" demonstration, starring limousine liberal darling Naomi Klein. So who is Klein, and why is she such a hot ticket? Not since the 1980s, when Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's Marxist dictator, bought $3,000 sunglasses on Fifth Avenue during a U.N. General Assembly have we seen such a confluence of free-market hate and consumer hog-wallow. But the leaders of the Climate Change March and the "Flood Wall Street" Occupy reunion put left-wing hypocrisy on full display this week in their loathing for capitalism and all-too-eager enjoyment...

    Ethics: Jimmy Carter says he's just being fair-minded by continuously condemning Israel. Meanwhile, his Carter Center draws ever more money from anti-Israel sources. Follow the money. The ex-president's irritating opinions on Mideast matters are one thing. But the funding of his Atlanta think tank by big-money, state-linked Arab sources is quite another — and points to a conflict of interest. According to the Carter Center Web site's 2004-05 annual report — the most recent available — the center has received "in excess of $1 million" from characters like Prince Al-Walid bin Talal. Bin Talal, you might recall, is the Saudi...

    INDIANAPOLIS - A hospital that gave lethal doses of a drug to three premature babies has made another medication mistake, giving a new mother a painkiller 10 times faster than intended and making her temporarily unable to walk. Amber Baise, 18, of Indianapolis, who received the painkiller during childbirth, has regained some movement in her legs as she recovers from what Methodist Hospital on Friday called a doctor's mistake. "We remain hopeful that she will receive a full recovery. That is our hope. That is our commitment," said Bill Stephan, a spokesman for Clarian Health Partners, which operates Methodist and...

    Clearwater, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Terri Schiavo's estranged husband Michael plans to file a lawsuit against her former caretakers. Michael asked a local court on Tuesday to waive the two year statute of limitations against such a lawsuit. Mark Perenich, Michael's new attorney, who replaces euthanasia advocate George Felos, told the Tampa Bay Tribune newspaper he could not comment on the proposed lawsuit. Under Florida law, legal action must be taken within two years of the alleged mistreatment unless an extension is granted. Michael could be hoping to go after Florida Governor Jeb Bush or the Florida legislature, which passed Terri's...

    McDonald's Commands a Real Estate Empire in Russia By ERIN E. ARVEDLUND MOSCOW, March 16 - The busiest McDonald's restaurant in the world is not in America but thousands of miles away in Pushkin Square.

The menu is essentially the same as in the United States, with the addition of cabbage pie among other traditional Russian food items. The Pushkin Square restaurant is important as well because it is the jewel in a growing real estate empire that ranks McDonald's among the largest corporate...
