    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/12/2015 | Byron York
    The 2013 Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill is the signature achievement of Marco Rubio's four years and ten months in the U.S. Senate. Yet in the first four Republican presidential debates, in which Rubio has played an increasingly prominent role, he has not been asked even once about the specifics of the legislation. Despite that omission, it seems likely that if Rubio continues to rise in the GOP race, someone, somewhere will pay attention to his most important accomplishment. The 1,197-page Gang of Eight bill is so far-reaching, and at the same time so detailed, that it provides...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush sat down with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on Sunday for a discussion about the Republican tactics which led to the government shutdown. Bush said that he sympathizes with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) desire to defund the Affordable Care Act, but advised hi m to exercise a “bit of self-restraint” when it comes to tactics. Bush began by taking aim at Cruz’s tactics. He observed that the GOP actually lost ground with the public over the course of the shutdown and ironically made significantly reforming the ACA that much harder. “Tactically it...

    The technology needed for driverless cars is here and could be ready for the market in less than a decade. Automation holds the promise of revolutionizing the automobile industry and making our streets safer, but will it spell the end of Fahrvergnügen? … Self-driving cars, long dismissed as a utopian pipe dream, are rapidly reaching the stage where they will be ready for the market. “We’re not talking about 20 years here, but more like five,” says Sebastian Thrun, initiator and director of Google's project. … No other invention in the history of civilian technology has caused as much harm...

    After naming Ayman al-Zawahri as Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden's successor on Thursday the terror group, unsurprisingly, said it "will never recognize any legitimacy for the alleged state of Israel," Reuters reports. "We assure our people in Palestine that we will not accept any compromise with anyone regarding the land of Palestine," the Al-Qaeda statement read. A United States counter-terrorism official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that Washington believed the announcement was genuine, but the State Department was dismissive of the communique’s significance.

    This morning Republicans are just beginning to assess the damage that former House Speaker and current presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has done to the GOP budget plan currently before Congress. On "Meet the Press" Sunday, Gingrich denounced House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan's plan to restructure Medicare, saying, "I don't think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don't think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate."

    With the state's first elections under the "top two" primary created by Proposition 14 under way, California Republican Party officials are stepping up efforts to create a new internal party nomination system. The party has not endorsed in primaries in recent years, but members approved last year the idea of creating a nomination process as a result of of the new system, which abolished party primaries in favor of a system that sends the top two finishers in a primary, regardless of party, to a run-off. CRP Chairman Ron Nehring has drafted an amendment to the organization's bylaws that outlines...

    Nuke the BP oil spill drill hole, it will seal it just as the Russians have done at 9 other sites. Too much money and environmental damage is at stake and we can no longer allow PC & environazis to prevent the correct action from being considered and taken. Obama promised to use science in determination of policy, yet they have taken the nuclear option off the table.

    If there’s a child in your house, then you probably know what’s going to happen when the clock strikes 12 tonight. The final Harry Potter book—Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—will be unleashed on the world. The big question that has millions of kids on edge: Will Harry live—or will he die? But the big question many parents have is: Should their kids be reading novels about wizards and witches and magic? A Christian expert on Potter mania says, “It depends.” Connie Neal, a veteran youth pastor and mother of three, is the author of a book titled What’s a...

    Jose Genao sells used cars for a living, but lately he's had to turn away customers from his Smyrna dealership. Genao used to sell about 15 vehicles a week, mostly Ford F-150 or Silverado pickups to a Mexican clientele. Now he sells only two or three. Half a dozen customers have returned cars because they can't register them. "They bring the key and tell me, 'Jose, I'm leaving,' " Genao said. Genao is feeling the fallout from a new state law, effective July 1, that requires a valid Georgia driver's license or ID card to register a car in Georgia....

    AMERICA THE MULTI-CULTURED: Shahriar Ahmed, shown in the Bilal Mosque, in Beaverton, Oregon, just one of many mosques in America. It may be time to throw out old motifs of America as strictly a Judeo-Christian country. A new movement is bubbling to the surface and wants to change the term to Judeo-Christian-Islamic. Leading Muslim organizations say it's time for Americans to stop using the phrase "Judeo-Christian" when describing the values and character that define the United States. Better choices, they say, are "Judeo-Christian-Islamic" or "Abrahamic," referring to Abraham, the patriarch held in common by the monotheistic big three religions. The...

    In the Friday's edition of the Arizona Republic Chip Scutari opines that John McCain is the GOP front runner for 2008. He claims that McCain is the most "influential politician not living at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave." He's a national statesman with star power to match Hillary Clinton. He has hosted Saturday Night Live, appeared on Letterman and Leno and is a constant fixture on the Sunday talk shows. Scutari goes on to write that If Kerry wins, McCain will run in 08. He can garner crossover vote from moderates and independents and will appeal to "pragmatic conservatives." McCain thinks there...

    Mullings ^ | August 3. 2004
    The question is: "Is Kerry sticking his bony, well-manicured, girly, index finger in the chest of the Marine pictured here?" The answer is "No." After optimizing the pic with Photoshop and Image Optimizer, what looks like Kerry's finger is actually the top piece of a wooden frame that holds a mirror and is attached to the window. There is another mirror just like it behind the Marine, to the right of his elbow.

    Muslims across Spain are lobbying the Catholic church in Cordoba to make a symbolic gesture of reconciliation between faiths by allowing them to pray in the city's cathedral. Cordoba's Renaissance-era cathedral sits in the centre of a 10th century mosque complex, and local Muslims want to be allowed to pray there again. They have appealed to the Vatican to intercede on their behalf. Zakarias Maza, director of a mosque in neighbouring Granada, said: "We hope the Vatican will give a signal that it has a vision of openness and dialogue. "Cordoba has been a symbol of the union of three...

    Muslims across Spain are lobbying the Roman Catholic church in the southern city of Córdoba to make a symbolic gesture of reconciliation between faiths by allowing them to pray in the city's cathedral. Córdoba's renaissance cathedral sits in the centre of an ancient mosque complex, and local Muslims want to be allowed to pray there again. They have appealed to the Vatican to intercede on their behalf. Zakarias Maza, the director of the Taqwa mosque in neighbouring Granada, said yesterday: "We hope the Vatican will give a signal that it has a vision of openness and dialogue. "It would be...
