    A looming Obama administration rule aimed at updating the federal ozone standard could be the single most expensive federal regulation in U.S. history, according to a new study commissioned by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). The proposal, expected to be unveiled by year’s end, could lead to millions of lost jobs, $2.2 trillion in compliance costs and a $3.4 trillion blow to gross domestic product between 2017 and 2040, according to the 142-page study. The analysis does not take potential public health benefits into account. NAM President Jay Timmons contends the regulation would saddle manufacturers with a new regulatory...

    Vice President Joseph R. Biden told a National Association of Manufacturers’ crowd this week that what the United States needed was more, not fewer, immigrants. Specifically, he called for a “constant, unrelenting stream” of new immigrants — “not dribbling [but] significant flows,” to bolster the national economy, The Hill reported.

    Three Iowa Democratic congressmen are being targeted in a million-dollar campaign by groups that say the National Labor Relations Board is overstepping its authority by dictating where businesses can and cannot create jobs. U.S. Reps. Bruce Braley, Dave Loebsack and Leonard Boswell are among 16 House members who are the focus of the national radio and web video ad campaign sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers and National Federation of Independent Business. They are being encouraged to vote for HR 2587, the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act. The legislation is a response to the NLRB’s “recent wave of...

    Summary. In the early 1990s, during the tenure of the Senate Select Committee on POW-MIAs, a witness appeared who told a story about US POWs from the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Major General Jan Sejna, a defector who had fled from Czechoslovakia to the US in 1968, claimed that he knew of a program whereby US POWs from Korea and Vietnam were used in medical experiments in Korea, Russia, and Czechoslovakia. Sejna's story was made more believable by the fact that he had served for years as a consultant to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), a position he still held...

    Thanks to U.S. taxpayers, an Islamic enclave is being carved out of the heart of the City of Brotherly Love. And how generous have you been with your tax dollars? You just gave $1.6 billion for the privilege of turning over all this cash to the Islamic community. The person doing the carving is Kenny Gamble, the author of such hit songs as “Love Train” and “Me and Mrs. Jones.” So far Americans have shelled out $1.6 billion in federal grants, loans, and “charitable” gifts to create an alleged “Muslims-only” community. A convert to Islam, Gamble, now known as Luqman...

    Cap-And-Trade: The administration likes to defend bad policies with analogies to the post office. New studies from a business group and the administration itself confirm that cap-and-trade belongs in the dead-letter bin.Along with Energy Secretary Steven Chu, Rep. Ed Markey likens the cost of the Waxman-Markey cap-and trade bill to "about a postage stamp a day," based on estimates made by the Congressional Budget Office and the EPA.

    Hugo Chávez and the Non-Aligned Movement. By Mario Loyola Behind the spectacle of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez’s insults against the West lurks something more sinister than meets the eye. Chávez seeks to lead the Non-Aligned Movement in a new cold war of race, class, and nationalism, to be fought everywhere on earth, chiefly against the United States. And before he’s done, he may hurt his people and ours more than he can imagine. In the 1950s, from the ashes of Europe’s colonial empires, there arose a wave of new “nations,” soon to be called the “third world.” Usually defined by...

To wit: “If only the growing threats that had begun to emerge in Europe and Asia could be appeased,” a repeat of World War I could be avoided.

    Set against the backdrop of decolonization and an international environment split between Cold War superpowers, both weak and newly independent states formed a bloc that became known as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). While essentially contradictory from its inception, it was not until the collapse of the U.S.S.R. and the Warsaw Pact that NAM became largely irrelevant in a seemingly tranquil and unipolar world. However, contemporary attempts to challenge America's global leadership have caused the organization to drastically improve its standing. Between the 27th and 30th of May, the foreign ministers of the Non-Aligned countries met in Putrajaya, Malaysia. A 60-page...

American farmers alone expect to increase exports to Central America by some $1.5 billion a year. All that goes away if Cafta fails. We are also told that Cafta can't work because the North American Free Trade Agreement of 1994 didn't work.... Ross Perot's prediction of a "giant sucking sound" proved to be a fantasy.

One after another, the soldiers told the story of how the priest, unarmed except for a crucifix and a prayer, ran into the middle of a mortar firestorm and dragged wounded men to safety. As the battle escalated and the casualties mounted, so did the priest's momentum. With mortar shells exploding all around him, he brought back one injured man after another, saving lives and comforting souls. "Many of the...

    The Soros-Kerry Connection Written by Doc Farmer Tuesday, August 24, 2004 Politics is an ugly business. Politics also makes for rather bizarre bedfellows. In terms of vitriol, spite, chutzpah, and sheer hit-for-way-too-long-with-an-ugly-stick repulsiveness, 2004 has plumbed new depths. It started in 2003, before the lib/dem/soc/commie candidate had even been selected from the gang of nine, with well-financed hatred focused on one man. Dubya. For a year, we’ve heard the same refrain. ABB – Anybody But Bush. Anybody could include Saddam, Hitler, bin Laden, Mao, Stalin, etc., but for the lib/dem/soc/commies, Hey, that’d be just fine. Besides, they’re all closer to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Back when federal lawmakers legally could be paid for speaking to outside groups, John Kerry collected more than $120,000 in fees from interests as diverse as big oil, tobacco, the liquor lobby and unions, records show. Between 1985 and 1990, Kerry's first five years in the Senate from Massachusetts, he pocketed annual amounts slightly under the limits for speaking fees set by Congress. Unlike many colleagues, he donated a speaking fee to charity only once, according to annual financial disclosure reports reviewed by The Associated Press. One of the companies to pay Kerry $1,000 for a speech...

    Seven children die as mystery virus hits Nam January 08 2004 at 01:39PM Hanoi - Seven children aged between nine months and 12 have died from a mysterious respiratory disease in the Vietnamese capital, but health officials have ruled out Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome as the cause, state media said on Thursday. Since mid-October, twelve children have been admitted to Hanoi's Central Paediatric Hospital with a high fever and a chesty cough. Their symptoms have not reacted to antibiotics. Hospital doctors refused to comment Thursday on the illness, but the Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper quoted Professor Hoang Thuy Long, director...

    It was a seven-year struggle against diehard indigenous guerrillas, a controversial war that helped bring down a Democratic president, a hard-fought jungle conflict in which both sides committed atrocities, and the sentiments of the domestic peace movement were echoed by disenchanted soldiers longing for nothing more than a ticket back to the world. Yeah, you guessed it: I'm referring to the Second Seminole War. Every day I watch the coverage of events and Iraq and pray that the United States has not gotten itself into another Florida. O.K., so maybe the comparison is far-fetched, but it is as valid as...

    JAKARTA, Apr 5, 2003 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Indonesian Vice President Hamzah Haz stated that the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) could be further developed to replace the United Nations (UN), since it has failed to keep the United States from waging war against Iraq, the national news agency Antara reported here Saturday. The United Nations "has failed to tackle the crisis in Iraq," noted Hamzah, who is also chairman of this country's largest political party, the United Development Party (PPP), during a meeting with his party's youth wing. He pointed out that the United Nations can no longer be trusted to...

    The victims of the Bali bombings were simply "collateral" casualties in the war over Palestine - the cause of the bombing and the September 11 attacks - according to Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Dr Mahathir blamed Europe and Israel for creating world terrorism, and called for radical reforms to the UN in order to "do away or modify the powers of the victors of a war fought half a century ago". Dr Mahathir's speech, at the opening ceremony of the summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, could undermine the summit's intention to pass a declaration critical...

    To what extent are records available on draft registrations and classifications of a politician who was prime draft age during Nam's hottest years - but never served? And - assuming they are available - where would I find them? (No DD214 on this guy; he never served - despite being a big jock at the time.) Thanks in advance; feel free to email any suggestions you want private.
