    A Chinese official referred to a statement last week from China's foreign ministry spokeswoman. Asked whether China was concerned about Trump's proposal to place high tariffs on Chinese goods, Hua Chunyin declined to comment on specific candidates. But she said "I want to stress" that China and the United States have "major responsibilities" in maintaining international political and economic stability. Representatives of other countries publicly attacked by Trump, including Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam either had no comment or did not respond to requests for comments.

    Washington (dpa) - Donald Trump's slash-and-burn attacks against Mexicans, women, immigrants and military heroes has expanded to Muslims, provoking another round of outrage on Friday over the leading Republican White House hopeful. The business tycoon, who is seeking the conservative party's presidential nomination, is under fire for failing to rebuff anti-Muslim comments at a campaign rally Thursday. Trump indicated that he would look into getting rid of Muslims during a question and answer session at the event in Rochester, New Hampshire, according to broadcast footage and The Hill newspaper.

    Mila Kunis has reportedly broken her word -- and, along with it, one lonely Marine's heart. Contrary to reports earlier this week, it appears that the "Black Swan" actress won't be attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in North Carolina this November -- because she has filming commitments that will keep her too busy for traveling. Kunis accepted Moore's invitation to the ball after some prodding from her "Friends With Benefits" co-star, Justin Timberlake, on Monday. After Timberlake alerted Kunis to Moore's come-on, which he posted on YouTube, he urged, "You need to do it for your...

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.

    President Obama’s State of the Union obviously was a first in more than one way. Obama point blank, called out (to use the modern vernacular) our Supreme Court Justices on national TV. He did so because he politically disagreed with their legal decision. In doing so, Obama demonstrated his supreme arrogance – and let America know just how far he is willing to go to get his way.

Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont 's own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere. Maslack recently proposed a bill to register "non-gun-owners" and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun Maslack read the "militia" phrase of...

Shown to only a small circle of senior advisers, the pages were first used on the eve of the 2003 invasion and were designed to provide support and encouragement to Mr Bush, a Christian who often cited the Bible while in office. Some Pentagon officials feared that if the documents were leaked at the height of the conflict, the use of Christian language to justify the invasion of...

    It should be the best of times for American conservatism. Republican majorities in the House and Senate, a re-elected Republican president, an increasing number of Republican governors and a rightwards tilt in the judiciary. While the British Tories and German Christian Democrats flounder, America’s right seems to flourish. Well, that’s the cover story. Beneath the surface, however, American conservatism is in increasing trouble. The Republican coalition, always fragile, now depends as much on the haplessness of the Democrats as on its own internal logic. On foreign and domestic policy alike the American right is splintering. With no obvious successor to...

    Proof that the Bush win has brought center stage attention to the Protestant evangelicals in the US is Hillary Rodham Clinton going way over the line in professing that she is in fact a "conservative evangelical." She was readying for her hubby’s library rained-over opening. In the process, she responded to a church newsletter. In her flowing remarks about returning to the South, being brought up an evangelical, appreciating her roots as a conservative Christian, Hillary simply went overboard. She was redundant, in other words. Why? Well, think of 2008. According to Kevin McCullough, radio talk show host and syndicated...

    ~9:05pm~ EST EVANGELICAL HILLARY?: I admit I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I read the quote attributed to Hillary from an upcoming print edition of the National Review. HillaryWatch was the first one to bring it to my attention... Speaking to a "church based" newsletter this week in anticipation of the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library, Mrs. Clinton made the following statements... "I always take time to worship God in as evangelical a way as is feasible, given time and location constraints. As you know, I consider myself an evangelical Christian, really a Christian conservative, if...

    AOL Admits 40% of Subscribers Don't Have Computers Leading internet provider America Online (AOL) has confirmed a stunning statistic leaked by a dissatisfied employee last week, in documents sold to Fox News for an undisclosed sum. "Well, I got the disk in the mail, and it said if I wanted to subscribed I should send money to these people," said Carl Lewen, an AOL subscriber in Kentucky who does not own a computer. "It never said anything about having to do anything with the disk. I thought it was kind of like a souvenir." According to the documents obtained by...

    <p>Sports fans probably enjoy the new Budweiser commercial, in which a football star is being interviewed in a locker room. Rather than giving the standard, boring answers we've come to expect from sports stars, he says what he really thinks. The star doesn't care about his team or his on-field performance, but the way he looks for the camera. His injury won't interfere with his busy week of advertisements and photo shoots, but it's too serious to chance playing.</p>

    As the elected leader of the newly-designated Roman Catholic State of Israel, Airel Sharon has assumed the position of Cardinal of the Israeli Diocese.   JERUSALEM —In an effort to confuse Palestinian bombers, the entire nation of Israel converted to Catholicism today. As the Knesset met yesterday, Shlomo Benizri submitted legislation that would formally change the official religion of Israel to Christianity in general and Roman Catholicism in particular. Speaking outside the Knesset chamber, Benizri told reporters, "If we just change religions, maybe the Palestinians won't really notice us any more."   The measure passed overwhelmingly.    Alex Plotzker, of the...
