  • Remember This? "Senator Obama's 2008 Message to Iran Undermines Condemnation of GOP Letter"

    Accuracy in Media ^ | 3/13/2015 | Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (Ret.)
    President Obama set his Vice Presidential attack dog on the forty-seven GOP senators who dared send their March 9th letter to Iran’s leadership warning them any deal signed with Team Obama may be short-lived when a new president comes to office. But Biden, like his boss, fails to do his homework before making outlandish statements or else chooses conveniently to overlook the facts. Livid over the GOP letter, Biden proclaimed: “In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which Senators wrote directly to advise another country.” Directing his venom at the Senate’s Republican majority,...

  • Doctor treats Ebola with HIV drug in Liberia — seemingly successfully

    CNN Health ^ | September 25, 2014 | Elizabeth Cohen
    Dr. Gorbee Logan has given the drug, lamivudine, to 15 Ebola patients, and all but two survived. That's about a 13% mortality rate. Logan said he got the idea to try lamivudine when he read in scientific journals that HIV and Ebola replicate inside the body in much the same way. "Ebola is a brainchild of HIV," he said. "It's a destructive strain of HIV." At first he tried a drug called acyclovir, which is often given to HIV patients to treat infections that occur with their weakened immune systems. But it didn't seem to be effective. Then he tried...

    The case of the rural West Virginia eighth-grader who was suspended and arrested in late April after he refused to remove a t-shirt supporting the National Rifle Association just keeps getting weirder. According to local CBS affiliate WOWK-TV, the student, 14-year-old Jared Marcum, was back at the Logan County Courthouse on Monday for a hearing because prosecutors Christopher White and Sabrina Deskins were seeking an emergency gag order. Earlier this month, Marcum had been formally charged with obstructing an officer. He was also suspended from school for one day. His crime was refusing a teacher’s request to take off the...

    CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan lambasted the Obama administration for pushing the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military. Logan gave a blistering speech in Chicago this past week that ripped the administration for the way it has handled the war in Afghanistan and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. "I chose this subject because, one, I can't stand that there is a major lie being propagated," Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Speaking about Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to...

    LOGAN W.Va. -- It is an instinct for parents to want to protect their children. But some parents in Logan County say their complaints about bullying against their children have gone unanswered. The parent of a student at Logan High School and the parent of another student at Man High School both contacted 13 News about their concerns. However they asked to remain anonymous so that their children would not be made more of a target. "Thursday at school my child's life was threatened," said the parent of a student at Logan High School. She said her son has been...

    Benghazi, Libya (CNN) -- Libyan opposition leaders received a major morale boost Friday as a top U.S. senator made a surprise visit to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi and urged greater American involvement in the bloody campaign to oust longtime strongman Moammar Gadhafi. The visit from Arizona Sen. John McCain came a day after the United States said it was deploying predator drones to Libya. (snip) He said he was against U.S. troops on the ground -- echoing Obama administration policy -- but argued that Western powers need to do more to "facilitate" the delivery of weapons and training for...

    WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Thirteen-year-old Chelsea Edwards says last weekend was the first time she ever tried her hand at a money-making venture. The seventh-grader at Feagin Mill Middle School says it wasn't too long though before a couple showed up and soured her first business experience. "The man bent down and seen the money jar, and he grabbed it," Edwards says, recalling what happened Saturday. Edwards says a man and woman had approached the stand she was running with her two friends. She says they started asking questions about the price of lemonade. That's when Edwards says the man...

    Identity politics are nothing more than socially acceptable bigotry. Among the least analyzed aspects of the Egyptian revolution has been the significance of the widespread violence against the foreign media covering the demonstrations in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. The Western media have been unanimous in their sympathetic coverage of the demonstrators in Egypt. Why would the demonstrators want to brutalize them? And why have Western media outlets been so reticent in discussing the significance of their own reporters’ brutalization at the hands of the Egyptian demonstrators? To date the most egregious attack on a foreign journalist in Cairo’s Tahrir Square took...
