    The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday said the extremist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) must be confronted forcefully by the U.S., though she stopped short of calling for boots on the ground. “It takes an army to defeat an army, and I believe that we either confront ISIL now or we will be forced to deal with an even stronger enemy in the future,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in a statement. The group is “operating with military expertise, advancing across Iraq and rapidly consolidating its position,” she added. “Inaction is...

    When it comes to President Obama's prowess as commander in chief, "leading from behind," at this point, would be a step up. Some believe that the United States should engage in military action in foreign countries when America's national interests or those of our allies are at stake. Some believe we should rarely do so, perhaps only when we are under attack. Some think we should actively export democracy to other nations, whether or not our national security interests are currently on the line. And some, like President Obama, are literally all over the map, a quagmire of incoherency. Since...

    A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 14 August 2010 | John Semmens
    The plan to build a mosque near the site of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center buildings took a new twist when an investor announced his plan to locate a homosexual bar across the street. Greg Gutfeld says the bar is “an effort to break down barriers and reduce homophobia among Muslims.” The planned bar was labeled “insensitive” by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “Homosexuality is considered a sin by devout Muslims,” Bloomberg asserted. “For Mr. Gutfeld to try to insert such a den of depravity so close to a place of worship is a travesty. No good can come...

    When he ran for Congress in 2008, businessman Harry Teague boasted that he provided health insurance for all of his employees back home in New Mexico. But once he won his seat, Teague, a Democrat, voted twice against his party’s health care reform bill because “it tells businesses to do the right thing and provide insurance for employees but doesn’t guarantee or require affordable options.” What Teague didn’t say at the time: At the very moment he was voting against the bill, his own companies were eliminating health care coverage for employees. On Dec. 21, 2009 — as the health...

    A survey of travel habits has revealed that the most environmentally conscious people are also the biggest polluters. "Green" consumers have some of the biggest carbon footprints because they are still hooked on flying abroad or driving their cars while their adherence to the green cause is mostly limited to small gestures. Identified as "eco-adopters", they are most likely to be members of an environmental organisation, buy green products such as detergents, recycle and have a keen interest in green issues.

    In the wake of the Larry Craig "Bathroomgate" story, some intrepid free-market-oriented bloggers came up with a novel solution to the problem of closeted gay conservatives indulging their carnal desires on the side. Gay sex offsets. The same market-based approach is used by environmentally crapulent liberal celebrities all the time. They use private jets, drive around with big entourages and own numerous energy-sucking homes. To make amends, they purchase an indulgence in the form of "carbon offsets" - a contract whereby the equivalent amount of greenhouse gases are soaked up by newly planted trees and the like. So why not...

His rush to judgment fit the liberal template of the university that convicted the players, the lacrosse program and the coach before the ink on the bogus charges was dry. All of it...

    The House of Representatives has scheduled a vote as early as today on a bill that strips 140 million U.S. workers of the right to decide in private whether to unionize. Naturally, it's called the Employee Free Choice Act. Big Labor has been agitating to ease union-formation requirements for more than a decade. And prior to last year's election, the AFL-CIO, AFSCME and their allies made it clear to Democrats that this vote would be the most important return they expected on their investment in a Nancy Pelosi Speakership. This is payback day.

    Every generation has a few atheists who seem eager to tell the world how much smarter they are than everybody else.  The fact that such individuals still exist, and that they are still producing popular tracts in defense of their disbelief, is no surprise.  Nevertheless, because ideas have consequences, one cannot ignore the recent push by big-name skeptics to persuade Americans that there is no God and that we should therefore adopt a new set of ethical standards.  In previous times, most people had a solid enough understanding of moral truth that they were not easily persuaded by atheist...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- The House Democrats' escape to the seclusion of a resort was a short- term celebration that had all the elements of a honeymoon: optimism, hope _ and a disagreement that may take some time to resolve. "Iraq, Iraq, Iraq," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, emerging briefly from the seclusion of a resort and spa, told reporters Friday. What should a House resolution, if there is one, on President Bush's troop escalation say, and what should the Iraq strategy be if the president's plan doesn't crush the bloody insurgency there? Democrats also have some other issues...

But the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice group set off a tempest when it excluded a firm that handled a pair of landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases challenging affirmative action. The group's leaders said letting the Minneapolis law firm of Maslon, Edelman, Borman & Brand join the effort would hamper its mission: to make the bar more racially diverse. "Would this law firm participating in our effort help or hinder us to do what we are trying to do?" said...

    The Rolling Stones paid just 1.6 per cent in tax on earnings of $US152 million ($A200 million) last year, thanks to slick management of their fortunes. Details have leaked out because the Stones' finances are managed by a Dutch company; they are making their wills and Dutch law requires certain information to be made public. Germany's Die Welt newspaper reported on the tax break that Mick Jagger, guitarist Keith Richards and drummer Charlie Watts enjoyed through the use of offshore trusts and companies. According to the newspaper, the trio went to a Dutch finance house in 1972 to have their...

    The firestorm over her comments about the 9/11 widows showed that America’s obsession with loving or hating Coulter is a psychological phenomenon almost unique in our culture Ann Coulter's new book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, has just been published by Crown Forum. With predictable celerity, it has inspired another multiplatform media conflagration between her admirers and her opponents, some of whom don't seem to understand that controversy doesn't hurt book sales.

    The news media play an important role in popular culture by providing publicity for the movie studios as films are readied for release. But some movies are more favored by the news media than others, some for their expected status as expensive but appealing blockbusters, and some for their social commentary (for example, the film Brokeback Mountain). The DaVinci Code was both: an expected blockbuster movie based on one of the most publicized works of fiction in the new century, drawing enormous national media interest with its vision of a vast, murderous church conspiracy. It should not be surprising that...

    "I believe severe punishment is required in this case," the judge said at Allen and Pat's sentencing in November 1997. "I think they have to be separated. It's the only way to prevent them from having intercourse in the future." Allen and Pat were lovers, but a Wisconsin statute enacted in 1849 made their sexual relationship a felony. The law was sometimes used to nail predators who had molested children, but using it to prosecute consenting adults -- Allen was 45; Pat, 30 -- was virtually unheard of. That didn't deter Milwaukee County Judge David Hansher, however. Nor did the...

    In the picture accompanying "N.J. senators seek a ban on powerful assault pistol" (3-4), I was disappointed to observe Senator Frank Lautenberg ignoring one of the fundamental rules of gun safety. While displaying the Five Seven pistol he is seeking to ban, Sen. Lautenberg's index finger is clearly on the trigger. Anyone who has taken a basic pistol safety course can affirm that one of the first rules taught to students is never to touch the trigger until you are ready to fire the weapon. Gun control remains a volatile issue in this country, but advocates on both sides of...
