    On March 24th, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton put in an appearance in Los Angeles that perfectly captured one of the most problematic facets of her checkered public service. Seated next to a prominent Islamic supremacist with longstanding ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, she nodded like a bobbing-head doll as he dissembled about Islam, fraudulently professed a commitment to “partnership” with law enforcement to prevent radicalization, and criticized those who know better. Unfortunately, Mrs. Clinton has ...

    Brandeis University on Monday announced the suspension of its decade-old partnership with Al-Quds University following a recent Nazi-style rally at the Palestinian school in Jerusalem. At the Nov. 5 rally, Al-Quds students wore black military gear, carried fake automatic weapons, gave the Nazi salute, and surrounded the main square of their campus with banners depicting images of “martyred” suicide bombers. “While Brandeis has an unwavering commitment to open dialogue on difficult issues, we are also obliged to recognize intolerance when we see it, and we cannot—and will not—turn a blind eye to intolerance,” Brandeis said in a press release. “As...

Part of that future, Biden said, should involve letting “undocumented” people “out of the shadows” in the United States—terminology the administration and others have used to describe a policy that would legalize illegal aliens and allow them to eventually become U.S. citizens. …

    My nephew and his squeeze are talking marriage. They've been childhood sweethearts since 6th grade - they're now both 21. He wants a 'prenup', a prenuptial agreement, and she's never heard of such a thing. Should they have one? Some background: they are each others best friend and confidant. When he left his grandfather's house after high school graduation to be more independent and encountered roughened circumstances, she supported him while she worked at WalMart, and together they became partners in a business that failed. Nephew moved back home while she went to school. But that's not all - her...

    The town of Marana is offering Boy Scouts plenty of chances to "do a good deed daily" - and work toward their Eagle Scout awards in the process.

The Parks and Recreation department is a big beneficiary of the Scouts' efforts.

Furthermore, "GE currently makes about 45% of its earnings from the financial unit, called GE Capital." From where we sit, General Electric's problems are the direct result of a management belief, as exemplified by the company's membership in the Climate Action Partnership, that the company does not have to create genuine value to earn a profit.

Environmental groups immediately questioned whether the plan will be tough enough on polluters, while industry groups said the program lacks details.

    e-msil response from Congressman Conaway of Texas | July 2, 2007 | Congressman Conaway of Texas
    From the Desk of Congressman Conaway Reply Thank you for contacting me in regards to the North American Partnership. I appreciate the opportunity to respond. In March of 2005, President Bush along with the former Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin and Mexican President, Vicente Fox, reached broad agreements that would enhance security in North America. The goals of the agreement are to ensure the highest continent-wide security standards and streamlined risk-based border processes. Part of the agreement will develop a consistent traveler security screening process at foreign ports and develop a cargo security strategy that ensures compatible screening methods at...

    Author Jerome Corsi says he expects his new book will bring a great deal of criticism from those who don't want the truth exposed about the Security and Prosperity Partnership -- a White House-endorsed policy he says could result in a "North American Union." In The Late Great U.S.A.: The Coming Merger With Mexico and Canada, Dr. Corsi contends that the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) created in 2005 has the goal of creating what amounts to a North American version of the European Union. He describes the SPP as "a treasonous plan" to create a new government "in stealth...

    ARLINGTON, Va., March 1, 2007 – International partnership is vital in the war on terror, a senior defense official said yesterday at the 18th annual Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict Symposium here. “Our foreign special operations face is absolutely critical,” Thomas W. O’Connell, assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, said. O’Connell said there are new models of success in the war on terror, and mentioned the 2002 U.S.-Philippine combined action against the Abu-Sayyaf organization as an example of international cooperation against the global threat. U.S. special operations forces there trained and assisted Filipino forces, and...

In the first phase of the deal, the newspaper companies will begin posting their employment classified ads on Yahoo’s classified jobs site, HotJobs, and start using HotJobs technology to run their own online career ads.

    John Hawkins apparently has taken on a mission to prove that the Bush Administration is not creating a North American Union to replace the United States, or a new currency -- the Amero -- to replace the U.S. dollar. Recently, in a blog debate on this website, I exchanged views with Mr. Hawkins. When Mr. Hawkins declined to respond in what the editors termed “Round 4” of that debate, I concluded Mr. Hawkins allowed me to have the final word because he lacked a convincing rejoinder. Now, we see Mr. Hawkins wants to carry on the debate but this time...

    Rep. Thomas M. Davis III, the Virginia Republican who has assumed leadership of his party's more liberal members of Congress, said yesterday that conservative groups such as the Club for Growth are hurting the party by refusing to help candidates who don't pass their "litmus test" and by attacking some incumbent Republicans. Mr. Davis said he and his group, the Republican Main Street Partnership, "don't go after Republican incumbents. Ultimately, that's not how you build a governing majority." The partnership consists of 58 members of the House and Senate, plus four governors. --snip-- Mr. Davis said his partnership, unlike the...

    Sometimes you read an article in the newspaper, and you just wonder aloud how some people's views of the world can be so skewed, and wonder if they are even from the same planet as you. Now I admit that usually, in the context of politics, that is me reading the latest rant of a Howard Dean or an Al Gore. But in the article I am referring to today, it is Congressman Tom Davis of Virginia, a Republican, who heavily quoted in an article in today's Washington Times entitled, GOP Left Slams Club for Growth. Davis is the head...
