    Telegraph UK ^ | 7/10/2012 | Tom Parfitt, Moscow and Adrian Blomfield
    Two destroyers and three amphibious landing vessels carrying marines set sail from Russian bases in the Arctic and the Black Sea, according to Russian military sources. Russia's defence ministry insisted that the mission was part of a previously scheduled exercise in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Black Sea and at least one of the vessels in the flotilla has patrolled waters off Syria earlier this year. But Western diplomats say the purpose of the mission is to show tangible support for Mr Assad, to warn the West against military intervention in Syria and to prepare for the possible evacuation of Russian...
  • Obama raises $71 million in June, trails Romney

    07/09/2012 8:55:22 AM PDT · by God luvs America · 20 replies
    (CNN) – President Barack Obama's re-election campaign announced Monday that it, along with the Democratic National Committee, raised $71 million in June from more than 706,000 donors. The amount lags far behind the $106 million Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee raised last month, a number the campaign made official early Monday.
  • BREAKING: Brian Terry Murder Indictment Unsealed, Five Charged

    07/09/2012 3:33:54 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 60 replies ^ | July 9, 2012 | Katie Pavlich
    After more than 18 months of waiting and a contempt of Congress charge against Attorney General Eric Holder, the FBI unsealed an indictment of five illegal Mexican bandits charged with the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry today in Arizona and offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of four of the five men who are still on the run and suspected to be in Mexico. The men are Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Barraza, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza, Manuel and Heraclio are brothers. During a press conference earlier today, the FBI confirmed...
  • Warning: your Internet may not work on Monday (how to detect and fix malware infection)

    07/07/2012 6:55:17 AM PDT · by Innovative · 60 replies
    An estimated 300,000 computers, most of them in the United States, Italy and India, could be infected and lose their Internet service, Queen's University associate professor Thomas Dean said Friday. Dean said Canadians can go to to check if their computers are infected and take appropriate measures. If computers have been infected due to the scam, they haven't been able to perform anti-virus software or system updates, leaving them vulnerable to other malware, said Dean, who teaches in Queen's University's department of electrical and computer engineering.
  • McConnell: We’ll Repeal Obamacare, One Way or Another

    " . . . Repeal of Obamacare will be the first item up in the Senate if I am majority leader. If we have a president who will sign the bill, we will do everything we can to get it off the books, and we’ll be looking for every angle that could be pursued. There has been a lot of talk about reconciliation. The Chief Justice said this is a tax, and we take him at his word, so that certainly makes this eligible for reconciliation. But that may not be the only avenue that we pursue. Our goal will...
  • Bashir Bashes Romney's 4th of July Holiday Plans, Gushes Over Obama's

    On MSNBC, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee can't even get fair treatment when he takes a vacation. Far from it, host Martin Bashir on the program hysterically bearing his name Monday absolutely trashed the Fourth of July holiday plans of Mitt Romney while practically swooning over what President Obama and his family will be doing (video follows with transcript and commentary): Bashir Bashes Romney's 4th of July Holiday Plans, Gushes Over Obama's MARTIN BASHIR: Every week is a good week when you’re worth around $250 million, but this should be especially good for Mitt Romney. That’s because the presumptive nominee...
  • In latest Romney ad, Hillary Clinton attacks Obama

    06/29/2012 4:36:34 PM PDT · by NKP_Vet · 81 replies ^ | June 29, 2012 | Holly Bailey
    In his effort to challenge President Barack Obama's attacks on his jobs record, Mitt Romney has enlisted a surprising new surrogate: Hillary Clinton. The Romney campaign quietly launched a new 30-second television ad Friday featuring footage of Clinton campaigning against Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, in which she accused Obama of lying about her record. "Shame on you, Barack Obama," Clinton says in the footage recycled in the Romney spot. The Romney ad uses the Clinton footage to back up a recent Washington Post Fact Checker item that said a recent Obama ad accusing Romney of outsourcing jobs...

  • Homeland Security suspends immigration agreements with Ariz. police

    The Washington Times ^ | June 25,2012 | By Stephen Dinan
    The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport. “We will not be issuing detainers...

  • Obama grants Holder request on 'Furious' documents as contempt vote looms (Executive Privilege)

    FoxNews ^ | June 20, 2012
    President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway. If the vote proceeds, Republicans have more than enough votes on committee to pass the resolution. However, Holder would not be considered held in contempt of Congress unless and until the full House approves the measure.

  • Democrats Go Over the Top With Last-Minute Walker Smear

    Power Line ^ | 6/3/12 | John Hinderaker
    Unbelievable. The Democrats are looking down the barrel of a humiliating defeat in Wisconsin’s recall election on Tuesday, so today they played their last card: they started a rumor that Scott Walker fathered an illegitimate child 24 years ago. The “scoop” comes from something called the Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op. The “Co-op” attributes the story to a woman named Bernadette Gillick, who teaches physical therapy at the University of Minnesota. Ms. Gillick claims to have known Walker’s girlfriend when they were students at Marquette. The “Co-op” says it has “not been able to independently verify Bernadette’s account.” No surprise there.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Dawson, the wisecracking British entertainer who was among the schemers in the 1960s TV comedy "Hogan's Heroes" and a decade later began kissing thousands of female contestants as host of the game show "Family Feud" has died. He was 79. Dawson, also known to TV fans as the Cockney prisoner-of-war Cpl. Peter Newkirk on "Hogan's Heroes," died Saturday night from complications related to esophageal cancer at Ronald Reagan Memorial Hospital, his son Gary said.

    Bill Cunningham Radio Program | May 20, 2012 | Hetuck
    Dr. Jerome Corsi was the first guest on tonight's Bill Cunningham Radio Program on the Premier Radio Network and he spent about 20 minutes talking about the Obama literary agency biography and other eligibility-related issues. The presence of this topic was a bit surprising, as Cunningham has previously been dismissive and condescending of these questions, instead towing the line that Obama was politically misguided but nonetheless a nice guy and good family man who was clearly eligible to be president [Article II Section 1 be damned!]. Much of his appearance covered the basics of these questions, but Dr. Corsi did...
