    On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace yesterday (full video here), the Associated Press’s Julie Pace twice demonstrated why hanging the “Administration’s Press” moniker on the self-described “essential global news network” is more than justified. My previous post (at BizzyBlog; at NewsBusters) dealt with Pace´s blind acceptance of unsupported assertions about the reason for the Obama administration´s delay of 2015 Obamacare enrollment until November 15, 2014 and her willingness to parrot long-discredited talking points about why the HealthCare.gov website initially crashed. Before that, she bragged about how her organization, which didn´t exactly have a track record of sitting on news...
  • 'Dying' Russia Is On Pace To Record Natural Population Growth in 2013

    Rosstat recently released their latest batch of demographic statistics. Nothing particularly bizarre or unexpected happened, but the data show that births have held steady at their 2012 level while deaths have modestly decreased. This means that, if the trends from the January-September period are maintained for the entirety of 2013, Russia will record natural population growth of roughly 13,000, its first natural population growth since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now in one sense natural growth of 13,000 out of a total population of 143,000,000 sounds puny and unimpressive. However, as I never tire of reminding people, it wasn’t...

    Commentary ^ | February 2013 | Elliott Abrams
    As the civil war in Syria enters its third year, there is much discussion of the regimeÂ’s chemical weapons and whether SyriaÂ’s Bashar al-Assad will unleash them against Syrian rebels, or whether a power vacuum after AssadÂ’s fall might make those horrific tools available to the highest bidder. The conversation centers on SyriaÂ’s chemical weaponry, not on something vastly more serious: its nuclear weaponry. It well might have. This is the inside story of why it does not. Relations between the United States and Israel had grown rocky after IsraelÂ’s incursion into Lebanon in 2006, for Secretary of State Condoleezza...

    According to two top officials, the Navy is operating at an “unsustainable” pace for its current force structure. At a House Armed Services Committee hearing this week, Vice Admirals Bill Burke and Kevin McCoy described a force that was falling into disrepair and struggling to cover ever-increasing responsibilities with decreasing manpower and money. The Navy’s maintenance issues began in the 1990s when Washington sought a post–Cold War peace dividend. One of the first casualties was manpower, and that led to smaller Navy maintenance crews. At first, the Navy tried to get by, deferring maintenance and patching up old equipment. But...

    Participation in Sonoma County’s ground-breaking energy retrofit program for homes and businesses has dropped dramatically over the past six weeks, and recently issued federal rules are to blame, county officials said. Since July 6, when federal housing officials said the retrofit program and others like it posed a risk to the government-chartered mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac and ordered a clamp down in lending practices, the average number of weekly applications received by the county’s program has dropped by nearly half; signed contracts are down by a third. Total applications received in the six-week period this year are...

    The so-called “Great Debate” at the National Space Society’s (NSS) International Space and Development Conference (ISDC) in Chicago on Saturday afternoon featuring Mars Society founder Robert Zubrin and former Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweickart was something of a dud, in part because it wasn’t that much of a debate: after ten-minute opening statements by Zubrin (who opposes the agency’s proposed plans) and Schweickart (who supports them), the floor was turned over to the audience, some of whom asked questions of the two, and others who simply expressed their opinions. Conference organizers explained that the event wasn’t intended to be a debate...

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday added to the problems confronting Pace Airlines Inc. by filing a lawsuit on behalf of an Asian flight attendant fired three years ago after complaining only white workers were being promoted.

    The outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace, says he believes homosexual acts are immoral and should not be condoned by the military. Pace's comments caused an uproar at a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee. The four-star Marine general said there are "wonderful Americans who happen to be homosexual serving in the military," but that the law of the land should not condone activity that is "counter to God's law." Protesters booed the remarks, prompting Chairman Robert Byrd to briefly adjourn the hearing. Pace later said he would support efforts to revisit

Yes," he told the Senate Appropriations Committee during a hearing focused on the Pentagon's 2008 war spending request. "We need to be very precise then, about what...

And his case is even more outrageous than we first reported. First, Shmulevich was arrested and jailed for 24 hours. Second, he’s not facing misdemeanor charges—he’s being charged with two felonies, criminal mischief and aggravated harassment. Felonies. For putting a book in a toilet. Third, his income is on a borderline that disqualifies him for a public defender, so he stands to suffer incredible financial hardship as well. Fourth,...

    Pace’s not being renominated has nothing to do with his performance as chairman of the JCS. It has everything to do with what he symbolizes (American leadership while fighting a difficult war in Iraq) to the usual salivating suspects on Capitol Hill. And it was clear to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and surely to President Bush, that Pace’s reconfirmation hearings would have been turned into a congressional circus: With poll-driven politicians focusing less on Pace’s performance and plans for the present and future prosecution of the war, and more on what has gone wrong in Iraq for the purposes of...

    It took none other than the liberal presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., to definitively conclude that the Bible is wrong and that they are more enlightened than the authors of same – after all, they're progressive, educated politicians in a contest for the presidency of United States; the authors of Scripture were only ignorant men, guided by, and filled with, the Holy Spirit of God. Clinton told Bloomberg News she "[does] not think homosexuality is immoral." I digress to say she has an interesting perspective on immorality. She obviously didn't think serial adultery, groping, alleged rape,...

    Mitt Romney: "I think General Pace has said that he regrets having said that, and I think he was wise to have issued an apology, or a withdrawal of that comment. I think that we, as a society, welcome people of all differences, whether there are differences in ethnicity, faith or sexual preference, and I think he was wise to correct his comment and to suggest that that was an inappropriate point to have made." http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0307/3166.html --------------------------------------------------- Wouldn't change it now...

    The Washington Post claims in an editorial that there is an "uproar" over General Peter Pace expressing his view that homosexuality is immoral. (web site) This is another manufactured "scandal" designed to put a top official, in this case the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, in a bad light. This "uproar," such as it is, has come from papers like the Post and homosexual rights activists. It is an effort at intimidation, pure and simple, and thought control. At this point in the media-generated controversy, Pace has not apologized but has been forced to say he should not have emphasized...

The officers, who are all lesbian or gay, called on Congress to repeal the law, and demanded that General Pace apologize for his remarks. COL Stewart Bornhoft, USA (Ret.); CAPT Joan E.

    Marine Gen. Peter Pace has violated a cardinal rule of our politically correct culture: stating his opinion that homosexual behavior is immoral. While some of his critics say they are upset he uttered his remarks in his official capacity, that's a mere sidebar. Their real beef is with the content of his remarks, not in what capacity -- official or personal -- he made them. Had Gen. Pace, in full dress uniform, expressed approval of homosexual behavior, do you think there would be a similar uproar? Or would he have been celebrated as a man of courage and enlightenment? But...
