    Chicago Teachers Vote to Continue Strike By STEPHANIE BANCHERO The Chicago public school teachers strike entered its second week after the teachers union declined Sunday to call off a week-long walkout that has catapulted the city into the national debate over teacher evaluations and job security. Only hours earlier, Chicago Teachers Union officials had trumpeted new concessions they said they had extracted from Mayor Rahm Emanuel during talks to settle the strike that started last Monday and has canceled classes for 350,000 students in the nation's third largest district. The vote to continue the strike came Sunday night by the...

    Excerpt from the socialist-in-chief speech yesterday in Virginia: "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

    As you pump 13 gallons into your Honda CR-V -- American's best-selling SUV with 28 mpg on the highway and 21 in town -- it's nearly impossible to view the $50 you're spending with a positive attitude. With the national average for regular at $3.81, it's easy to label oil executives as pond scum, but try to remain open-minded. Think of the big picture: Though that promised road trip to Disney World has gone up in carbon monoxide, high gas prices may actually have an upside. Not for you and your family personally, maybe, but perhaps for the United States...
  • Dominique Strauss-Kahn: sexual contact with chambermaid 'consensual'

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn will admit he had sexual contact with the hotel chambermaid who alleges he attacked her, but insist it was consensual, his lawyers have indicated. The International Monetary Fund chief allegedly locked the maid in his suite at Manhattan's Sofitel on Saturday and forced her to give him oral sex. He was denied $1m bail and is being held at Rikers Island jail. However in a hint at what may become his main line of defence, his attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said at New York criminal court: "The evidence, we believe, will not be consistent with a forcible encounter". It...

    As the final days of his long congressional career were falling from the calendar, corrupt Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd was uplifted as one special interest after another heaped praise upon him. They were the beneficiaries of his years of generosity with other people's money and his advocacy of federal mandates that enriched them. And for all those years, they completed the quid pro quos by delivering copious sums and manpower for his re-election campaigns. In another context, prosecutors would call this extortion or racketeering; in this context, however, it's just called government. The news media, new and old, also kissed...

    Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi said Thursday that the U.S. Department of Energy has a “mandate” to issue regulations to determine what household appliances are available to Americans in the future. Assistant Secretary of Energy Cathy Zoi ( photo/Penny Starr) Speaking at the inaugural meeting of the recently reestablished Secretary of Energy Advisory Board (SEAB), Zoi pointed to four tactics the Obama administration intended use to advance the “deployment of clean energy.” The first three were government subsidies for private-sector green energy projects, special tax incentives for green energy projects and low-interest government-backed loans for green energy projects.“The fourth one, which...

    After the Senate passed a "fix-it" bill Thursday to make changes to the new health care law, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the influential Finance Committee, said the overhaul was an "income shift" to help the poor. As Democrats tout the moral underpinnings of the federal health care system overhaul -- ensuring health care coverage for nearly all Americans -- one senator appeared to go off message when he said the legislation would address the "mal-distribution of income in America." After the Senate passed a "fix-it" bill Thursday to make changes to the new health care law, Sen. Max...

    Officials expect Mr Castro to return to public life soon Cuban President Fidel Castro has strongly criticised the use of biofuels by the US, in his first article since undergoing surgery last year.He said George W Bush's support for the use of food crops in fuel production would cause 3bn deaths from hunger. The article in the Granma newspaper did not mention Mr Castro's health. Officials say they expect Mr Castro - who temporarily handed over power to his brother last July - to resume activities in government soon. Last month, Mr Castro appeared in a live radio broadcast...

    Allende: The Untold Story By Humberto Fontova | December 14, 2006 To read the mainstream media lately you'd think Augusto Pinochet's villainous henchmen, while twirling their pointy black moustaches and snickering maliciously, overthrew a Chilean "President" (Salvador Allende) somewhere on the order of Jimmy Carter. Then they lined up 3000 harmless sociology professors and innocent leftist parliamentarians and shot them, for the sheer heck of it. The real story, as you might imagine, is a tad more complicated—despite the media/academia Black Legend regarding Chile. Upon Stalin's death in 1953, Chilean Communists held a "Homage to Stalin" in Santiago's Baquedano...

    Short Strand 'Has Had Enough Of SF' By David Young Thursday 3rd March 2005 Angry residents of Belfast's republican Short Strand are disillusioned with Sinn Fein and are turning to unionist politicians for advice, it has been claimed. The DUP's Sammy Wilson and senior Ulster Unionist Sir Reg Empey say many people from the area have contacted them in the wake of local man Robert McCartney's murder, allegedly at the hands of the IRA. >>>> Anti-Sinn Fein and IRA graffiti has been daubed on walls in staunchly republican areas since the 33-yearold's murder outside Magennis's pub in Belfast city centre...
