  • Graham: GOP must pony up emergency border funds or take blame

    The Hill ^ | July 9 2014 | Mike Lillis and Bernie Becker
    Republicans will take the political fall if they don't provide emergency funds to address the immigrant crisis at the southern border, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned Wednesday. A number of conservatives on Capitol Hill are pushing back hard against President Obama's request for almost $4 billion to manage the spike of immigrants — thousands of them unaccompanied minors — that's hit the Texas-Mexico border in recent months. But Graham, a long-time supporter of an immigration system overhaul, said a failure to provide the funds will exacerbate the crisis while handing Obama and the Democrats a political victory ahead of November's...

    Virginia state Republican lawmakers have lost one of their most reliable sources of campaign cash with U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's defeat in a GOP primary contest last month. Cantor's campaign account and the Cantor-controlled 7th District Republican Committee have given more than $700,000 directly to Republican state candidates since Cantor was first elected to Congress in 2000. That is according to campaign finance reports compiled by the Virginia Public Access Project, a nonprofit that tracks political contributions. Helping Cantor help state politicians were big-name donors from around the country attracted by the majority leader's former star power. They...

    GREENVILLE, South Carolina--Outside Tommy's Ham House here this morning--where Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich scheduled back-to-back visits--a boisterous crowd of young, fresh-faced supporters was waving Romney signs and chanting, "MITT! MITT! MITT!"But this wasn't a grassroots youth movement rooted at the University of South Carolina. No, many of the students cheering on the candidate told BuzzFeed they were actually BYU students and young Mormons from D.C. and Virginia who traveled to the Palmetto State to give their coreligionist's presidential effort a much-needed jolt of energy.Kat Wardle, a 23-year-old BYU student who is spending the semester in Washington, D.C., said she...

    Grace for Today Today's Scripture "Give us this day our daily bread…" (Matthew 6:11, NKJ). Today's Word from Joel and Victoria God has grace in store for you every single day. Grace is His supernatural empowerment, His unmerited favor on your life. All throughout scripture, we see God giving daily grace, empowerment and provision to His people. For example, when the people of Israel were in the wilderness headed toward the Promised Land, God gave them manna each morning to eat. It would just appear on the ground. But, He specifically instructed them to gather up only enough for...

    TORONTO, April 8 (UPI) -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has been paid $5.2 million in speaking fees in Canada since leaving office, a Toronto Star analysis said Tuesday. The newspaper's Washington bureau reviewed earnings for Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., released last week along with tax filings. The documents showed the couple had earned $109 million since leaving the White House. As far as Clinton's Canadian speaking junkets, his best day was in the autumn of 2005 when he was paid $475,000 for appearances in Toronto in one day. The newspaper said that's double his annual...

    Virgie Arthur, the mother of former Playboy playmate Anna Nicole Smith, has filed a libel lawsuit against a Houston TV station, CBS Studios Inc. and the late model's former companion, Howard K. Stern. The suit alleges that Stern arranged for Smith to appear in an Entertainment Tonight interview where the model stated that Arthur was complicit in Smith's childhood physical and sexual abuse. The lawsuit says the program aired on KPRC Channel 2 in Houston on Feb. 14, a week after Smith died at the age of 39. CBS Studios produces the program, which is broadcast locally on KPRC, an...
  • The 14th worldwide meltdown of Muslims caused by Pope

    Pope Benedict is starting to give me reasons to rejoin the Catholic Faith. If there is such a thing as speaking truth to power then he is fully committed to such a course. No namby pamby beating around the bushes, he goes straight for the central issue regarding Islam’s dealings with the West. The debate about whether Islam can be reformed enough must center around Mohammed himself, his life, his example, since Islam revolves around him. If Mohammed was a radical then exactly how is the religion to reform itself without losing its soul.

    There is a great furor over whether the opinions of a number of retired high-ranking officers should tip the balance in the ongoing debate over the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. But the question really isn't whether Rumsfeld should resign. He has already resigned several times and had President Bush tear up his letters of resignation. He clearly is taking responsibility for his actions on a continuing basis. But now that a galaxy of flag officers are raining down on Rumsfeld demanding his resignation, no one seems to have bothered to ask which, if any, of these generals had...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Frozen squirrels, angry wasps and obstructive potatoes were among some of the reasons given by motorists to support their insurance claims, Norwich Union said Monday. Freak incidents involving animals top the list when it comes to bizarre claims, closely followed by those involving food. The squirrel motorist said the frozen animal had fallen out of a tree and crashed through the windshield while another driver blamed a wasp sting on the leg for a sudden surge in acceleration and a bump with the car in front. One driver even blamed a potato stuck behind the brake pedal...

    Schabir Shaik's Nkobi group paid almost a quarter of a million rand to woo Zulu King Goodwill Zwelethini from the Inkatha Freedom Party to the African National Congress, according to a document handed to the Durban High Court on Friday.

    Dec. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Dresdner Bank AG, a unit of Allianz AG, behaved illegally in blocking the London account of the Saudi central bank because the German lender was owed money by government ministries, lawyers for the Saudi bank told a U.K. court. Dresdner notified the central bank on Oct. 14, 2002, that it won't transfer 49.1 million euros ($61 million) from the London account because the Saudi ministries of Finance and Defense owed that much to Dresdner's Luxembourg branch, according to documents filed at the High Court by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency. ``Dresdner London's action in blocking the...
