    Madison - State Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman said Friday he would not step aside in three matters, including an attempt to reopen last year's decision that allowed a new law to take effect that curbed the power of public unions. Attorneys in the cases asked Gableman to remove himself because other parties in the cases were represented by Michael Best & Friedrich, which defended Gableman against an ethics allegation without billing him. Lawyers have said the legal work was likely worth tens of thousands of dollars. Now, the full court will have to decide whether to force Gableman from...

    Newt Gingrich instantly brought the crowd to its feet last night at the last debate before Saturday's all important primary in South Carolina. What was the multitude cheering? Not his stance on tax policy, or on abortion, but rather his acid assault on the “elite media.” Gingrich expressed outrage that moderator John King of CNN would lead off the evening by asking about potentially damaging charges made by the Speaker’s second wife in an interview with ABC News's "Nightline." The audience howled its approval as Gingrich tore into the “destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media…” As...

    Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s ex-wife. The ballyhoo was not warranted. The “interview” was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne. A prime example was Brian Ross asserting that Newt divorced his first wife while she was “being treated for cancer.” That account has been disputed, but no note of the dispute was made by Ross. There were only two sensational aspects of Marianne’s statement, neither of which ABC News tried to put in...

    Lori Berenson's parents raged last night against a human rights court ruling that will keep their activist daughter in prison for the next 11 years. Mark and Rhoda Berenson, who live in Gramercy Park, said the ruling marked "a tragic day for human rights in the Western Hemisphere and in the world." They faulted the Costa Rica-based Inter-American Human Rights Court's decision to uphold a Peruvian court ruling that declared their activist daughter a Marxist terrorist who conspired in 1995 to overturn the Peruvian government. Berenson was originally tried by a tribunal of hooded judges. It was later found she...

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) - The Inter-American Court of Human Rights Tuesday refused a request by American Lori Berenson to review its ruling that upheld her 20-year sentence in Peru for terrorism. In a decision issued in November, the Costa Rica-based court - the legal arm of the Organization of American States - rejected Berenson's arguments that Peru violated her rights in a 2001 civilian retrial. It was Berenson's last formal avenue of appeal. The former New York City resident has denied any wrongdoing and maintains she is a political prisoner whose concern for social justice was distorted by...

The 194-party conference agreed to start negotiations on a new accord that would put all countries under the same legal regime to enforce their commitments to control greenhouse gases. It would take effect by 2020 at the latest. Currently, only industrial countries have legally binding emissions targets under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Those commitments expire next year, but they will be extended for another five years...

"In the intensive search for evidence, authorities from the Hesse state crime office found a hidden, rolled up letter written in Italian," police said in a statement.

Since that relocation, profits have plummeted, vendors have pulled out and shoppers have become scarce.

The young protester was roughed up at the Downtown sit-in by a man named Garfield Leslie, 19, police said Tuesday. Leslie offered to sell the woman drugs, and when she declined that offer and his romantic advances, he punched her in the face and dished out more blows to two friends who had come to her defense, police said. The woman filed a complaint with police, and Leslie was arrested at Zuccotti...

    It was a year of one radical leftist demonstration after another. McGovern became their darling, promising $1,000 a year to every man, woman, and child in America. The rest of his platform was the list the left would have given to Santa if he would listen to such naughty boys and girls. McGovern rode the wave of protest all the way to the Democratic convention and to the nomination. Meanwhile, the Yippies (Youth International Party) did everything they could to disrupt the Republican convention. I remember live TV coverage showing a Yippie crowd blocking the way for a bus of...
  • Air and Space Museum closes after guards clash with protesters

    The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum on the Mall was closed this afternoon after a “large group of protesters” tried to push past security guards and enter the museum, Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas said. A demonstrator lies on the ground at an entrance to the National Air and Space Museum after police pepper-sprayed a group of protesters trying to get into the museum Saturday. (Jose Luis Magana - AP) At least one demonstrator was pepper-sprayed by a museum guard in the confrontation, St. Thomas said. It was not immediately clear if the protesters were affiliated with the Occupy...
  • President Praises ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protest

    As the “Occupy Wall Street” protest entered its fourth week it received a ringing endorsement from President Obama who contrasted the protesters’ “sincerity” and “selflessness” with the “hypocrisy” and “self-serving greed” exhibited by the so-called “Tea Party.” “The Wall Street protesters have put their whole selves into the fight for social justice,” Obama declared. “They’re not just showing up when it can be conveniently scheduled between working hours and tending to the kids like the right-wing opponents of my policies. They’re here day and night, rain or shine. Their dedication is a model of what it will take to transform...

    A little tourists' cornucopia from the big, bad OccupyWallStreet thingey. I took the images below on my way to work this morning - discarded most of 'em cause they were just too pathetic - and thought I'd share them. My absolute fave is that earnest-looking upper middle class white kid in the bottom 4 pix (my "vignettes") - especially the last one, where he's so neatly folding his Buzz Lightyear towel - probably still smells like the Downy fabric softener mommie used when she washed it for him. Please feel free to borrow as you wish, and to editorialize as...
  • The Wayseers Join Oath Keepers To Occupy The Occupation! (occupy wall street)

    On Thursday, Constitutional watchdog Oath Keepers announced their support for the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy the Fed protests: Oath Keepers sees good reason to stand in the streets with these awakening souls and protect their right to free speech, to peacefully assemble, and to redress their grievances to their government, as the Constitution prescribes for all Americans. That is one thing. Another facet of our initiative is to use these public gatherings to reach and teach many who now hunger for the truth -- we can show them how the Constitution will protect them better than an oversized, bloated...

    October 5, 2011 – I hope I’m only one of many to see the irony. On the day that Steve Jobs, one of the most innovative entrepreneurs in our history, died, packs of ignorant and possibly malicious protestors roamed Wall Street demanding the death of the system that made Jobs possible. Steve’s Great Job Steve Jobs was a capitalist hero. He had a vision of computers for everybody in 1976, at a time when it was assumed that only the most prosperous businesses and the most advanced and well-funded research labs would ever need or be able to afford them....

    Adbusters Media Foundation, which publishes the slick, anti-consumerist Vancouver based Adbusters magazine, describes itself as “a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age.” Judging from the latest edition of the magazine, the Adbusters “activist movement” has become infected with plain, old-fashioned bigotry.    In the current edition, Adbusters offers its readers a one page “photo essay” — Truthbombs on Israeli TV — that makes comparisons between the situation that Palestinians are experiencing in Gaza and what the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto experienced...
