    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is asking for a federal investigation into the surprise discovery of 14,000 votes in Waukesha County for the Wisconsin Supreme Court race. The Wisconsin Democrat sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Friday night asking him to assign the Justice Department Public Integrity Section. It oversees the federal prosecution of election crimes.

    DECEMBER 6--In the days after Bristol Palin was voted into the finals of “Dancing with the Stars,” viewers from across the country wrote to the Federal Communications Commission accusing the ABC show of everything from running a “payola type program” to “encouraging and promoting teen pregnancy.” Many of the complainants, whose letters were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, were upset that, as one Oregonian put it, “the top scores were voted off yet Sarah Palin’s daughter remained on.” One viewer from Pittsburgh alleged that the show’s voting system had been “fixed by extreme supporters of the Tea...

    Robert Gibbs, under fire for his attack on the "professional left," sends over a statement walking it back, conceding it was "inartful," and clarifying that the views he expressed frustration about are not widely held: I watch too much cable, I admit. Day after day it gets frustrating. Yesterday I watched as someone called legislation to prevent teacher layoffs a bailout -- but I know that's not a view held by many, nor were the views I was frustrated about. So what I may have said inartfully, let me say this way -- since coming to office in January 2009,...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | January 10th 2010
    51% Still Blame Bush for Nation’s Economic Woes As the nation’s unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, 51% of voters nationwide continue to believe that the economic woes can still be blamed on Administration of George W. Bush. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 41% hold the opposite view and believe the policies of Barack Obama are to blame. Those figures are unchanged from a month ago. While 85% of Democrats blame Bush and 70% of Republicans blame Obama, unaffiliated voters are more evenly divided. Forty-six percent (46%) blame Bush and 42% blame Obama. Ninety-six percent (96%) of...
  • Nine Months Into Obama's Presidency, Hillary Clinton Still Citing ‘Inherited’ Problems

    CNSNews.com ^ | Wednesday, October 21, 2009 | Patrick Goodenough
    From the time he entered the White House, President Obama frequently has spoken about having “inherited” an economic mess, and he has been criticized for it. But the expression arguably has been used even more often by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nine months later, it is a theme she returns to regularly at home and abroad. During her most recent trip, a six-day visit to Western Europe and Russia earlier this month, Clinton used the phrase publicly at least four times on three occasions. At a joint press conference with her British counterpart David Miliband in London on October...

Iger told a source close to ABC that he was "deeply troubled" by the information and claimed he had no previous...

    For years, conservatives have complained about what they saw as the liberal tilt of federal grant money. Taxpayer funds went to abortion rights groups such as Planned Parenthood to promote birth control, and groups closely aligned with the AFL-CIO got Labor Department grants to run worker-training programs. In the Bush administration, conservatives are discovering that turnabout is fair play: Millions of dollars in taxpayer funds have flowed to groups that support President Bush's agenda on abortion and other social issues. Under the auspices of its religion-based initiatives and other federal programs, the administration has funneled at least $157 million in...
  • Bush-appointed Judges Most Conservative On Record, New UH Study Finds

    Judges appointed by President George W. Bush are the most conservative on record when it comes to civil rights and liberties, according to a new study by a political science professor at the University of Houston. Bush judicial appointees are significantly more conservative than even the very conservative voting record of jurists appointed by Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bush Sr. in the realm of civil rights and liberties, said Robert Carp, professor of political science at UH. When it comes to these decisions, the Bush team is a full 5 percentage points more conservative than even the trial judges appointed...

    (CNSNews.com) -- "Judge Alito Proves a Powerful Match for Senate Questioners," read the headline of a "news analysis" piece in Wednesday's New York Times. The report described Alito as an "elusive target" for Senate Democrats who are determined to paint him as an extremist. "For nearly eight hours, Judge Alito was placid, monochromatic and, it seemed, mostly untouchable," the New York Times opined. The Los Angeles Times on Wednesday compared Democrats on the Judiciary Committee to a "guerilla army searching for a weak point in a heavily guarded fortress...as they challenged Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. at his...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 1 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following is a fact sheet released today by the Democratic National Committee: The White House this weekend announced that President Bush received good news during his annual physical. Doctors pronounced the President to be in "superior" physical condition, which media reports attributed to his rigorous, six day a week exercise routine. While President Bush has made physical fitness a personal priority, his cuts to education funding have forced schools to roll back physical education classes and his Administration's efforts to undermine Title IX sports programs have threatened thousands of women's college sports programs....

Aug. 20, 2004 | The next salvo in the cinematic campaign war of 2004 is "The Big Picture," a documentary film attacking John Kerry sponsored by David Bossie's Citizens United, the right-wing group that unsuccessfully sued to stop national advertising of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11." But Bossie's latest project could create legal problems for him and his organization -- in part because Lionel Chetwynd, the award-winning director, is working not...

It’s a journey across the nation where we meet celebrities, scholars and average folks alike, and we find out whether the American Dream is still alive! In the process, we’ll look at Michael Moore’s claims about the country, its people, and our way of life.

    DURHAM, N.C. The murderous attack on four American civilians in Falluja, Iraq, brought home gruesome images of charred bodies dangling from a bridge over the Euphrates River. It also introduced Americans to a company few had heard of: Blackwater USA, which was providing security for food delivery convoys when its employees were ambushed. Blackwater, which operates from a 5,200-acre training ground in the Great Dismal Swamp of North Carolina, is a private military firm that provides an array of services once performed solely by military personnel. The company trains soldiers in counterterrorism and urban warfare. It also provides the American...

    ROANOKE — U.S. Sen. John Kerry today blamed the administration's tax cuts for snuffing the prosperity of the 1990s and said he would end the Bush presidency the same way Bill Clinton did to the elder Bush in 1992. "If you liked what Bill Clinton gave you in eight years, you'll love what John Kerry will give you in the first four," the front-running Democratic presidential candidate from Massachusetts told a crowd of about 500 outside a downtown firehouse. At the morning rally, Kerry criticized an upbeat economic report released by the White House that concluded America's economy is getting...

    The Terrorist Next Door by Daniel Pipes New York Post August 12, 2003 Howls of rage went up after the Joint Terrorism Task Force, guns drawn, arrested Maher Hawash in the parking lot of an Intel Corp. facility in March and placed him in solitary confinement. The protests intensified as prosecutors detained him without charges for more than a month in an Oregon jail while they pored over the evidence. This all came as a particular shock, for Maher Mofeid "Mike" Hawash personified the American success story. A Palestinian born in Nablus in 1964 and reared in Kuwait, he arrived...

    My younger brother is preparing for five months of Army training, after which he may be shipped off to the Middle East to assist in destroying Iraq. A month ago, I returned from a week in Baghdad even more committed to fighting that same war — not to fight in it, but rather to fight against the war. We are, my brother and I, even more opposed than the legendary stories of brothers who fought on opposite sides of the Civil War. I had received an e-mail from the president of the University of Baghdad inviting me to join its...

We're sorry to hear of your recent illness, but, like a man who smokes like a fish, drinks like a chimney and eats like a cow on cannabis, you really have no one to blame but yourself. You blew it. For the second consecutive election cycle, you've dropped the ball, and the damage that's done before you even have a chance to rectify the situation may be kind of hard to undo. You underestimated the Republicans' vulnerability on the economy, and you refused to push President Bush very hard on war with Iraq, on the administration's...

    Letter on The Coming Massacres in Afghanistan Richard E. Rubenstein Prof. of Conflict Resolution and Public Affairs October 10, 2001 Dear Friends, Up to this point, the war in Afghanistan seems relatively "clean." This is partly because the primary U.S. targets have been military facilities, most of them outside heavily populated areas, and reported Al-Qaeda camps, most of them empty -- and also because, for obvious reasons, the Afghan government will not publicize the number of soldiers' lives lost in these raids. In addition, we know that there are civilian refugees dying because hundreds of thousands have been forced to...
