"We have a ton of medical staff on the scene and are transporting people to local hospitals," the dispatcher said. A witness who works at a business near the shooting site told CNN affiliate KOMO that she heard about 10 shots.

    IT isn’t news anymore when an Arab ruler facing mass protests pledges sweeping reforms. But Morocco’s July 1 constitutional referendum may be the most significant development in the Arab world all summer. For the first time since the Arab Spring began, a population broadly embraced its leader’s reforms and scaled back antigovernment demonstrations. In the weeks before the referendum, over 100,000 people had taken to the streets; after the vote only about 10,000 did. A sizable majority of Moroccans approved the new Constitution, which calls for King Mohammed VI to cede half his power to a prime minister appointed from...

    On Nov. 5, 2009, at the behest of Rep. Michele Bachmann, thousands of tea party activists descended on the Capitol to vent their rage over the health care overhaul bill pending before Congress. The assembled activists chanted, "Kill the bill! Kill the bill!" and waved signs opposing a government takeover of health care — but they may not have known that the same government was paying for the event. According to House expense reports, Bachmann and three conservative GOP colleagues — Reps. Tom Price (Ga.), Steve King (Iowa) and Todd Akin (Mo.) — each paid $3,407.50 that day, a total...

    You can tell Michele Bachmann had a great debut at the Republican primary debate in New Hampshire last night, because swarms of liberal writers are breaking off from their pursuit of Sarah Palin’s tour bus to dive-bomb her. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post decided to headline a basically complimentary assessment of Bachmann’s debate performance as “Bachmann assumes the position.” He was riffing on CNN moderator John King’s instruction for the candidates to assume their positions at the lectern, which he turned into a rather tortured metaphor for the entire debate. (Milbank was watching a different debate than the rest...

Pete King (R-LI) was as much a racist assault as it was religious hate mail, The Post has learned. The rambling note accompanying the porcine parcel proclaimed that "white bitches" would soon be naming their sons Mohammed, said a Capitol Hill source. The note contained anti-Semitic slurs, called the pig's foot a "Jew foot," taunted "kiss my black Muslim ass," and said King -- who is Catholic...

    Representative Peter King began hearings on the radicalization of Muslims in the United States last month. Today he is receiving bloody packages and threatening letters in the mail. It has been confirmed that Rep. King received a bloody pig's foot and a derogatory letter today. In the letter, there contained anti-Semitic ramblings and references to King's hearings. Who and why the letter was sent can only be speculated. However, with the evidence, it appears that a Muslim person upset with the hearings most likely sent the letter and pig's foot, as pork is forbidden in Islam and is thus considered...

    President Obama on Wednesday will call for a one-third cut in oil imports by 2020, part of a plan he says will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign petroleum. With rising gasoline prices at home and political turmoil throughout the Middle East, Obama will seek in a speech at Georgetown University to rally Americans — and bickering lawmakers — behind a program that draws about half of that import cut from energy savings and about half from greater energy production, according to Obama aides who briefed reporters Tuesday.

Being suave, clean-spoken, and glib of speech, particularly when speaking with the aid of his personal Oracle, he ascended quickly through the ranks of the People's Party. Following a lofty speech before a gathering of the Party, he saw it in his power to aspire to the highest office in the land, held by the evil king, στιβεύς. (*) But not all was smooth. In order...

Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to defund what has now been dubbed the “ObamaCare Slush Fund”, which is the $105 billion that Rep. Bachmann claims is hidden in the text of the Affordable Care Act. While many have jumped on board in debunking this stat, King and Bachmann are pressing forward in trying to eliminate this “fund,” introducing amendments on the House floor that would zero out this $105 billion. Republican leadership is not supporting them in their quest, however. According to a top aide for...

Unless the Republican-controlled House in this Congress can force President Obama to sign new legislation forbidding dispersal of this $105.5 billion, the administration will spend it to lay the basic foundations for a socialistic health care system in...

Although he didn’t identify Ellison by name, Bihi’s criticism of local leaders, religious and political, was seen as partly a reference to Ellison being an obstacle to finding out what happened to 20 Somali young people who had disappeared from Ellison’s congressional district and showed up in Somalia as terrorists.No wonder Ellison had called the hearing...

Predictably, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca advocated on behalf of Muslims at the highly-publicized hearing, conducted by the House Committee on Homeland Security. Not surprising considering Baca, elected to run the nation’s largest sheriff’s department, regularly attends fundraisers for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to meet the goals of his agency’s Muslim Community Affairs Division. First elected in 1999, Baca joined forces with...

    Our contacts on Capitol Hill have confirmed to us that Rep. Steve King will bring his amendment to the House floor to FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare ON THURSDAY or at the latest Friday. THE KING AMENDMENT IS THE ONLY OPTION THAT FULLY DEFUNDS OBAMACARE. Without the King Amendment, Nancy Pelosi's "mandatory" self- funding provisions -- a total of more than $105 BILLION IN OBAMACARE SPENDING -- "will flow to grow ObamaCare like a malignant tumor," according to Rep. King. IT IS URGENT THAT CITIZENS EXPRESS THEIR VOICE ON THE ISSUE OF WHETHER OBAMACARE SHOULD BE FULLY DEFUNDED RIGHT NOW.

    The Pigford Scandal. Chances are you’ve never heard about it unless you frequent Andrew Breitbart’s websites- which is unfortunate given the level of corruption involved. Breitbart’s Big Government has been leading the charge on the investigation, yet the mainstream media has remained completely silent. I wonder why? If you are unfamiliar with the scandal, please take a look at this blog post which explains everything in the most simplistic manner possible. It is a very complex issue, but the more people know about it, the better. Here’s an exclusive interview of Rep. Steve King with documentarian Lee Stranahan looking into...

    <p>House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and defenders of the health care reform law unearthed an unexpected and temporary ally Monday night: Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC).</p> <p>Politics makes strange bedfellows. But few bunking arrangements are stranger than this.</p> <p>To be clear, there aren't many in Congress who have more antipathy for the health care law than Foxx. In fact, at a meeting of the House Rules Committee Monday night, Foxx could barely hide her contempt for the health law.</p>

    In an unprecedented move the leaders of Jordan's main Bedouin tribes have published an open letter addressed to King Abdullah II accusing his wife, Queen Rania, of corruption. The text, released on 5 February, is signed by 36 representatives of the main Bedouin tribes. It comes at a particularly difficult time for the king, whose authority has been sapped by the growing discontent voiced by demonstrators. ... The letter makes no direct reference to the issue of the country's fragile ethnic balance, but claims that the queen, of Palestinian parentage, has created centres of power serving her own interests. This...

    Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee, thinks the panel’s hearings into terrorism are a fine idea but that the focus ought to be broadened to include “neo-Nazis, environmental extremists, anti-tax groups and others” because they represent as significant a threat as Islamic radicals — maybe even a bigger one. Thompson formally made the request in a letter to Homeland Security Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., on Feb. 1. In the letter he argues:

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) says to defund the healthcare law, his party should use the precedent set by House Democrats some three decades ago in cutting off funding for the Vietnam War.  "We should follow the model of the appropriations bill that shut off the funding for the Vietnam War," King told a crowd of Tea Party activists at a town hall forum in Washington, D.C. Tuesday night. "It went back to any money that was in the pipeline. That precedent is there." King said he's working to convince fellow House Republicans that simply cutting off funding for the...
