  • Our View: U.S. Sen. John McCain (D-Arizona?)

    As long as we have a few Democrats in town, why not throw a match onto an issue that’s waiting to flame? The Cochise County Democrat Party should endorse John McCain for re-election to the U.S. Senate. Tell us we’re wrong. Arizona’s senior senator has lost the love of local and state Republican Party officials, who made national news just a few weeks ago denouncing the war hero for his “liberal” leanings. Before Cochise County joined the fray, McCain had already been censured by three county Republican parties, most notably Maricopa, the state’s largest GOP group. Cochise County wasn’t far...

Egypt state TV said the court issued its ruling on Monday.

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said late Tuesday that he supports securing the United States border with Mexico with a double-tiered fence but voted against an amendment to the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill that would have required exactly that. Rubio and his fellow Gang of Eight Republicans helped the Democrats kill an amendment from Sen. John Thune (R-SD) that would have required the double-tiered fence be built, as current law requires, before amnesty was granted to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. The only other Republican to vote against the amendment was Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). “I support Senator...

    Calculating the Cost of Amnesty By The Editors The Heritage Foundation has undertaken to back a plausible theory with numbers. The theory is that the amnesty contained in the immigration bill before Congress will cost taxpayers plenty; it is plausible because we have a large redistributive state, and many of the illegal immigrants to whom this bill will grant legal status — and the relatives their legal status will allow them to bring here — will be net recipients of government benefits.

    (The Hill)- Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday he would favor immigration reform that would deport most of the residents of the United States who are here illegally. McCain, who at one point had been the top Republican advocate for immigration legislation promising a pathway to citizenship for some illegal immigrants, said he favored establishing a guest worker program. But McCain expressed opposition to any program that would give illegal immigrants a way to become citizens. “No amnesty. Many of them need to be sent back,” McCain said during an interview on KQTH-FM in Tucson, Ariz. Once the border is...

Alito Jr. was captured on camera during last night’s State of the Union. Justice Alito stole a sliver of the limelight during the president’s address, when he was seen shaking his head and mouthing “No, it’s not true” as Mr. Obama criticized a recent Supreme Court campaign finance ruling. The president, a former teacher of constitutional law, had asserted that the ruling, known informally as...

    Millions of undocumented people in the U.S. should be given a path to legal status after the country finds a way to stop illegal immigration, business and government leaders said in a report Wednesday. The University of Denver report argues that legalizing as many of the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants as possible could strengthen the economy and national security. But it should come with conditions, such as requiring new immigrants to learn English, pass criminal and medical background checks, and pay any taxes that they owe, the document states. The report is the product of a year of discussions...

    Assuming the numbers hold, McCain lost. We have our first socialist regime. So where did Mac lose it? My choice is the second question of the first debate. Both candidates were asked "Do you support the bailout?" It was a hanging curveball that McCain could have smoked into the seats with a clear statement of "Here is what I support." Then he could have laid out why we were in the mess, and how we get out of it. Instead he floundered with crap about main street and wall street and other mumbo-jumbo. I knew then he was in trouble.

    Barack Obama’s campaign has confirmed that a woman living in a South Boston housing project is indeed the senator’s aunt, a little-known relationship that was only revealed this week - five days before the election. Obama spokesman Reid Cherlin confirmed to the Herald this afternoon that Zeituni Onyango, 56, who lives on Flaherty Way, is Obama’s aunt on Obama’s father’s side. Onyango, a Kenyan native is believed to be the “Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” Click here to find out more!

    The British newspaper The Times reported Wednesday that it had tracked down Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango. Although born in Kenya, Onyango now lives in the United States, in Boston. The report of The Times shows her living conditions are not exactly grand. Zeituni Onyango is affectionally described by Obama in his book Dreams from My Father. Today, however, it seems that Obama and Onyango have little to no contact. The latter now ‘lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston.’ Another relative of Obama, whom he also affectionally described in his best-selling autobiography,...

    She is the second Obama relative known to live on skid row. His own brother was found living in a cardboard shanty last month in Kenya, and now his aunt in a Boston slum just five miles from where Obama attended law school. She was found by British journalists in a dismal, run-down public housing project in a violent slum in south Boston. Details. Perhaps surprisingly, Barack Obama has apparently not reached out to help his aunt or his brother, nor does he keep in touch with his relatives. In fact, his charitable contributions for any altruistic purposes are terribly...

    Barack Obama's story, spanning from his mother's roots in Kansas to his father's in Kenya and his childhood spent in Hawaii and Indonesia, has been well chronicled and a central part of his allure as a candidate who transcends national and racial lines. But one small part might have remained largely hidden from public view. In a first-floor apartment of a brick public housing complex on a side street in South Boston lives a woman who city officials believe is Obama's aunt. Her name is Zeituni Onyango, as in the "Auntie Zeituni" in one of his books, a polite and...

A little later in the book Mr Obama travels to the family village in western Kenya where he meets his step-grandmother, Sarah, the woman who had raised his father. On the walls of her tin-roofed hut, Mr Obama noticed photographs of the missing Omar, “the uncle who had left for America twenty-five years ago and had never come back”. The woman he calls...

The paper, which leans conservative but chose not to endorse a candidate in 2004 over dissatisfaction with President Bush, said the "uncertain times require McCain's tested vigilance." "McCain brings a lifetime of useful experience, including his grueling captivity in Vietnam and long Senate service. He believes in federalism, a strong defense and disciplined self-interest," the paper wrote. "McCain has been willing to cross party lines to work on tough problems.

Since Rezko's criminal case, Obama has donated $159,000 of Rezko-connected contributions to charity. Rezko's cooperation in the ongoing case against Blagojevich and his wife would give investigators access to someone the Tribune described as the "ultimate political insider at the center of a pervasive pay-to-play scheme."

    Although oil prices have dropped by nearly 30% since mid-July, those prices are not always reflected in the price of gasoline at the pump. Retail gas prices are driven by refinement costs and production and thus disruptions to refinement, switchover to seasonal fuel blends and routine refinery inspections can influence prices dramatically. This week wholesale gas prices have risen dramatically throughout the Midwest, and that rise is expected to ripple throughout the nation. In Texas, wholesale prices are nearly $5 per gallon, meaning of course retail prices are much higher. As far north as Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin the prices...
