    Chase Post ^ | 18 Dec 2008 | Lynn Grainger
    Could this cast be more hard evidence of the existence of the Chase Beast? Obtained by the Post from a secret location in the borough it clearly shows the paw print of a large mammal. Spanning over four inches in diameter, the plaster cast backs up reports we have received from over a dozen locals who claim to have seen a big cat roaming the streets and fields. In July this year golfers Ray Bright and Danny Adams photographed a huge pawprint they discovered at a nearby golf club. And eyewitness accounts of encounters with the big cat have continued...

    Among the items in Norman Hsu's personal collection of Clinton memorabilia: CDs of presentations made by Hillary Clinton as well as an envelope of thank-you notes from the Democratic presidential front-runner... One envelope was devoted to letters from New York Sen. Clinton, thanking Mr. Hsu, who was one of her biggest fund-raisers. The Clinton campaign has said it would return to donors the money Mr. Hsu helped raise. Mr. Hsu had several CDs and a video of Mrs. Clinton giving presentations in New York. Another CD was entitled "Merle Haggard Hillary." Mr. Haggard wrote a song for Sen. Clinton earlier...

    Flip Pidot, the go-to-guy on the Hsu scandal, notices that Winkle Paw seems to have vanished. Paw, as you may recall, is a close business associate of Norman Hsu and fellow big-bucks contributor to Democrats. "Paw has served as everything from project analyst to CEO at a handful of Hsu's companies, including Components, Ltd., Next Components, Next Electronics, and CoolPowers (though that last one could've been a poor transcription of the word ‘Components' by a Tom Harkin campaign staffer)." A pretty important potential witness in case with great importance. But apparently he was not being sought. Flip continues: "We also...

    From public real eastate records, here is the story on the little lime green bungalow of the Paw Family, who have given over $200,000 in total over the past several years to various Democrat candidates, committees etc. As we all now have heard, major Hillary donor, and HillRaiser, William Hsu, has emerged as perhaps having given tons more cash than the law allows, through the use of what is being alleged to be "straw men" in the form of the Paw Family, residents of a little lime green bungalow in Daly City, California, in the flight path of San Francisco...

    The Clinton campaign said today that it saw no reason to return donations from two major campaign contributors whose donations, according to the Wall Street Journal, closely track one another. The Journal reported that a total of $200,000 in donations to Democratic committees and candidates from the Paw family of Daley City, Calif., and those of Norman Hsu, a wealthy New York businessmen who is a major Democratic donor and Clinton fund-raiser, had sometimes taken place about the same time. The article also said the Paw family lived in a modest house and raised questions about their ability to make...

    One need look no further than today's Wall Street Journal to figure out why the left has been so adamantly opposed to its sale to Rupert Murdoch. The Wall Street Journal has had the audacity, the effrontery, to challenge, actually challenge, one of the left's most cherished shibboleths: Queen Hillary. Doing what 'mainstream' journalists have failed to do for, oh, the last ten years or so (except when a Republican is president), the WSJ today put the 'investigate' back in 'investigative journalism.' Following up on records of campaign donations with the FEC, the WSJ stumbled across something odd. The Paw...

    DALY CITY, Calif. -- One of the biggest sources of political donations to Hillary Rodham Clinton is a tiny, lime-green bungalow that lies under the flight path from San Francisco International Airport. Six members of the Paw family, each listing the house at 41 Shelbourne Ave. as their residence, have donated a combined $45,000 to the Democratic senator from New York since 2005, for her presidential campaign, her Senate re-election last year and her political action committee. In all, the six Paws have donated a total of $200,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005, election records show. That total ranks the...

    Alec "the Bloviator" Baldwin has a new bosom buddy: Beltway Republican strategist Grover Norquist. The Bush-bashing actor-turned-activist and the Muslim vote-courting political organizer joined together at a Washington, D.C.-area conference last weekend to perpetuate bald lies about the Patriot Act and to oppose the "repressive" War on Terror (repressing terrorist suspects apparently being a bad thing). Baldwin and Norquist's panel, titled "Strange Bedfellows," was sponsored by the ultraliberal group People For the American Way. When PFAW head and panel participant Ralph Neas ranted about the lack of judicial and congressional oversight of the Justice Department's terror investigations, the audience...

    The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has an official day on which fathers are honored by their children. On the third Sunday in June, fathers all across the United States are given presents, treated to dinner or otherwise made to feel special. . The origin of Father's Day is not clear. Some say that it began with a church service in West Virginia in 1908. Others say the first Father's Day ceremony was held in Vancouver, Washington. Regardless of when the first true Father's Day occurred, the strongest promoter of the holiday was...

    People for American Way Leads ‘Stop Alito’ A familiar liberal group has launched another campaign to "save the courts,” this time, from Supreme Court Nominee Sam Alito. People for the American Way began a targeted, national TV campaign Sunday during NBC’s "Meet The Press” with a commercial "to help tell all Americans that Samuel Alito is part of the radical right's dream team.” Sounds good so far. According to a fundraising e-mail received by NewsMax, the group views the Alito nomination as a critical step in regaining a mainstream – read: liberal – agenda for America. "We cannot let the...

By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact) privileged  prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...

    NEW YORK - A video screen showed President Bush boarding a plane for Washington. His purpose: To get to the White House and sign Congress' bill asking federal courts to review the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. Joan Bokaer of TheocracyWatch.org offered her take on the action. "There's something strange about the folks running our country," she quipped. The audience of 500 people responded with some appreciative chuckles. Bokaer, from a social action center affiliated with Cornell University, was speaking at a conference last weekend that denounced conservative Republicans on matters like mercy-killing, abortion, gay marriage, research using human...

    Although the ACLU has declared the practice unconstitutional, the Bible is being used as a textbook in classes taught in 300 school districts nationwide, according to a curriculum provider. About 1,000 high schools in 35 states are using material produced by the North Carolina-based National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools in classes during regular school hours. The organization says that while the ACLU is "up in arms" about it, there have been no complaints from administrators, teachers, students or parents.

Chase was master of ceremonies at People for the American Way's Defender of Democracy awards gala at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. But the organization got more than it bargained for when Chase went off the rails in a potty-mouthed rant, the Washington Post reports.

    Loose Cannon in Utah by James R. Edwards, Jr. Posted Jun 22, 2004 Congressman Chris Cannon of Utah apparently is in real danger of losing his seat in Congress, and apparently that’s causing him to employ extreme measures. Cannon faces serious GOP primary opposition from former state legislator Matt Throckmorton. In the Republican state convention, Throckmorton forced Cannon into a primary election happening today. Throckmorton hammered Cannon’s mass immigration stance, as well as his support for the controversial No Child Left Behind education law. Throckmorton, a solid conservative who is 100 percent pro-life and for enforcing immigration laws, has found...

    Moment of Truth (For the Anti-American Left)By David HorowitzFrontPageMagazine.com | March 31, 2003 Every movement has its moment of truth. At an "anti-war" teach-in at Columbia last week, Anthropology professor Nicholas De Genova told 3,000 students and faculty, "Peace is not patriotic. Peace is subversive, because peace anticipates a very different world than the one in which we live--a world where the U.S. would have no place."De Genova continued: "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military. I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus."1 This was a reference to the ambush...
