    Bill Clinton's redemption is complete. Nearly a year after the former president negotiated the release of two Current TV reporters in North Korea, one of them, Laura Ling, has honored Clinton by naming her new baby after him. According to People's Cynthia Wang, Ling gave birth to a girl, Li Jefferson Clayton, on Wednesday night in Burbank, Calif. (The father is Ling's husband, financial analyst Iain Clayton.) The baby's first name, Li, is a nod to Ling's sister Lisa, a former co-host of "The View," and Jefferson is Clinton's middle name.

    U.S. Rep. Barney Frank scrambled yesterday to backtrack from his criticisms of an Israeli raid on a pro-Palestinian flotilla that left nine dead - saying he never referred to those killed as “innocent.” Frank, (D-Newton), came under fire from local Jewish groups after telling the Herald Tuesday he was “as a Jew ... ashamed” of some Israeli actions and saying there should be a “genuinely impartial” inquiry into the raid. Yesterday, Frank said a probe by an Israeli-commissioned group is best. “The record of the United Nations with regard to Israel is a badly biased one and clearly no inquiry...

    There's a hole in the bottom of the ocean. Unemployment is still near 10 percent. There are two wars underway. And what are conservative pundits fretting about? That this year President Obama won't be laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. The liberal watchdog outfit, Media Matters, has been keeping track of this latest right-wing meme: - Glenn Beck says, "Obama is skipping out on a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington Cemetery because he'll be in Chicago on vacation. I'm sorry, I don't ever, ever question the president's vacation. I...

    A BBC radio jockey stirred a sensation over the airwaves in the UK by jokingly announcing that Queen Elizabeth II had died and then switched on the national anthem 'God save the Queen', forcing the organisation to tender an "unreserved apology". Disc jockey Danny Kelly, 39, played the national anthem and told listeners that he had an important announcement to make and then said "Queen Elizabeth II has now died." The announcement was made on Tuesday over BBC WM, local radio service beamed to British city of Birmingham and West Midlands. A BBC spokesman later confirmed that "Danny Kelly had...

    ...it's becoming ever more apparent that real power within the GOP rests with the ranting talk-show hosts. ...Suddenly, the takeover of the Republican Party by right-wing extremists has become a story (although many reporters seem determined to pretend that something equivalent is happening to the Democrats. It isn't.)... The right's answer, of course, is that it's about outrage over President Barack Obama's “socialist” policies — like his health care plan, which is, um, more or less identical to the plan Mitt Romney enacted... Many on the left argue... that it's about race, the shock of having a black man in...
  • White House Declares Halt on New Offshore Drilling

    The White House said today it is halting all new offshore drilling in U.S. waters until there's an "adequate review" of a massive 600-mile wide oil slick that has begun to lap up on Louisiana's coast. The federal government is defending its response to the spill, which began with an April 20 blast on one of British Petroleum's offshore rigs that burned for two days before sinking. Rescuers saved 115 workers but 11 are presumed dead. BP is responsible for the cleanup, and it wasn't until Thursday -- nine days after the explosion -- that the White House declared it...

    Bill Brady, the Republican candidate for governor of Illinois, paid no federal income tax in 2009. In recent weeks, I've written a couple of columns about reports that nearly half the people in the United States will not pay federal income tax for 2009. In part, that's the result of new tax credits aimed at stimulating the economy. Still, as someone who paid the tax, it bothers me that some people don't. Especially people wealthier than I am. When that wealthier person happens to be a political candidate complaining about high taxes, well, it seems sort of wrong. Brady reported...

And I just met briefly with the commission and said the same thing to them. Of course this means that all of you, our friends in the media, will ask me and others once a week, or once a day, about what we are willing to rule out or rule in when it comes to the recommendations of the commission.

    “If I can call a rally for stronger laws for puppies I will draw 100 000 people to Washington just like that” Snap! That was the Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell this morning on FOX accusing the tea party of being not able to draw a crowd bigger than a thousand people in Washington DC. Besides the fact that his numbers on tea party attendance are wrong it is amazing to witness Rendell who is usually appealing to the folks of all political backgrounds turn into fierce campaign against a grassroots movement to which about 60% of the Americans sympathize. Seems...

    It looks like Bill Clinton may finally have proof for his charge that the Tea Party movement has attracted domestic terrorists. Unfortunately the terrorist is a pal of President Barack Obama and is solidly on the liberal side of the political spectrum.William Ayers, former Weather Underground terrorist and reputed ghost author for his Hyde Park, Chicago neighbor Barack Obama, spoke to a reporter from ABC affiliate KSFN last night in Fresno, California about how he "didn't quite know why the Tea Party folks are mad at him":"I actually think that there are many things we would agree upon.

    Summary Obama is a liar. Pure and simple. I know some of you are offended to hear him called a liar, but he is. He is also a coward for not facing the people whose hopes and dreams for our Human Space Flight Program are being destroyed by this man and his accomplices in Congress and NASA. There is no new Human Space Flight Program. There is just a poorly written Powerpoint, lacking in specifics or even a name, posted on Obama’s teleprompter. No ship, no hardware, no employees, nothing but crap. There is no destination, no idea what NASA...

    Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said in an interview Sunday, when asked about the Tea Party protests, that the Obama administration is paying more attention to the deficit than the Bush administration did. Tea Partiers, the Obama administration is on your side. That's been the message from the White House over the past few days, as top officials dispute charges that Washington is on a spending binge and encourage conservative protesters to count their blessings. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, when asked about the Tea Party protests, said in an interview Sunday that the Obama administration is paying more attention to deficit...

    Recalling ’95 Bombing, Clinton Sees Parallels By CARL HULSE WASHINGTON — With the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing approaching, former President Bill Clinton on Thursday drew parallels between the antigovernment tone that preceded that devastating attack and the political tumult of today, saying government critics must be mindful that angry words can stir violent actions. In advance of a symposium on Friday about the attack on the Oklahoma City federal building and its current relevance, Mr. Clinton, who was in his first term at the time of the bombing, warned that attempts to incite opposition by demonizing the...

    Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser tonight, President Obama touted his administration’s tax cuts and said that the recent tea party rallies across the nation have “amused” him. “You would think they should be saying thank you,” the president said to applause. The president’s 30-minute speech included a lot of recycled material from previous fundraisers. In a nod to Vice President Biden, the president acknowledged the crowd for their help getting health care reform across the finish line. “As my vice president said, 'This is a big deal,'" Obama said to laughter, even though he omitted the one key word to...

    PORTAGE -- Two much-anticipated meetings on whether Portage High School Marine Junior ROTC cadets can post the U.S. flag at a tea party rally next week in Valparaiso didn't happen Wednesday. The doors of Portage High School West, to where the meeting was moved in expectation of a large crowd, were lined with signs saying the meeting was canceled, after Superintendent Michael Berta received an e-mail from National Marine Corps JROTC Director William McHenry that read, "The Portage JROTC program is directed not to participate in the (Northwest Indiana) Patriot event." "This is the best decision. It was made for...

  • Al Sharpton Insists He Saw The Phantom Tape

    During the sparring session last night between Rev. Al Sharpton and Bill O’Reilly on “The Factor,” Sharpton claimed that he saw the much bally-hooed tape of Tea Party protesters outside the Capitol building hurling the “n” word at black congressmen. The only problem is that such a tape most likely does not exist. Nor are there any credible witnesses whom have come forward to substantiate the charge. When confronted by O’Reilly, Sharpton started to back away from his claim that he actually saw a tape of the alleged incident. Reminiscent perhaps of Sharpton’s trumpeting of the infamous Tawana Brawley rape...
