    JOHN Edwards likes ‘em old. The disgraced politician took advantage of a wealthy 100-year-old supporter to cover up the fact that he had an out-of-wedlock baby with his mistress, according to a new report. Interior decorator Bryan Huffman — a key witness in the federal grand jury investigation of Edwards’ presidential campaign — told American tabloid the National Enquirer that John misled Bunny Mellon, the super-wealthy campaign contributor who’s been dubbed the ex-North Carolina senator’s “Sugar Mama.” “I feel it was a misleading situation and an unfortunate situation,” Huffman said. “She and I found out — about the girlfriend and...

    Staff at the state Department of Regulation and Licensing have begun to review roughly 300 e-mail complaints about doctors issuing excuse notes for protesters at the state Capitol over the weekend, officials said Tuesday. Complaints that name a specific doctor and the alleged violations of rules covered by their licenses will be forwarded to the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board. Letters specifying the complaint will be sent to the doctors at the start of the investigation. To date, the names of doctors Lou Sanner and James Shropshire have been cited in media reports about the medical excuses dispensed over the weekend....

    Obama's New StartRepublicans no longer have the wind at their backs. Riding the lamest of ducks, President Obama just won the Triple Crown. He fulfilled (1) his most important economic priority, passage of Stimulus II, a.k.a. the tax-cut deal (the perfect pre-reelection fiscal sugar high — the piper gets paid in 2013 and beyond); (2) his most important social-policy objective, repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell”; and (3) his most cherished (achievable) foreign-policy goal, ratification of the New START treaty with Russia. Politically, these are all synergistic. The bipartisan nature of the tax deal instantly repositioned Obama back to the...

The immediate chord he stuck with the dignitaries, including MPs and chief ministers, probably made Obama’s day as he carried out a perfect public relations exercise to capture the Indian mind. The charged atmosphere in Central Hall became evident as soon as Obama entered. He was greeted by a standing ovation! Obama’s speech constantly referred to Indian themes, all of which were applauded by the audience. He began by...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 10/7/10 | Wyatt Buchanan, Chronicle Sacramento Bureau
    California grossly miscalculated pollution levels in a scientific analysis used to toughen the state's clean air standards and scientists have spent the past several months revising data and planning a significant weakening of the landmark regulation, The Chronicle has found. The pollution estimate in question was too high - by 340 percent, according to the California Air Resources Board, the state agency charged with researching and adopting air quality standards. The estimate was a key part in the creation of a regulation adopted by the Air Resources Board in 2007, a rule that forces businesses to cut diesel emissions by...

A source tells me the event will be Sept. 16, the same day as the DNC fundraiser, at the Marriott Hotel in Stamford, Conn. The DNC event is at a private home in nearby Greenwich.

Definitely unexpected. Higgins has been hunting creek beds for artifacts since he began finding them on farmland when he was a child. But nothing he had found compared to the 9 3/4 inch by 2 3/4 inch specimen he recently found in western Kentucky. The item, described as a clovis point made of buffalo river chert, was submerged in a creek bed when Higgins stumbled upon it. “As soon as I...

From that standpoint, the darkest blemish on his record will no doubt be the healthcare reform bill he signed into law in 2006 while governor of Massachusetts, a program similar to Obamacare in that it levies tax penalties on those who willfully go uninsured, among other things So how might Romney defend his record...

PBS Washington Week host Gwen Ifill reviewed New Yorker editor David Remnick's new Obama book The Bridge in the Washington Post Outlook section Sunday, and she kept finding Obama is a Slick Barry, a "shape shifter." Obama even admitted to rhetoric what should be obvious -- how he changes "dialects" depending on the audience he's talking to: Obama cops to this. "The fact that I conjugate my verbs and speak in a typical Midwestern newscaster's voice -- there's no doubt that this helps ease communication between myself and white audiences," he tells Remnick.

The man, who the FBI says is nothing but a fraud, even showed up in a military uniform at Houston Mayor Annise Parker's inauguration. The problem is that he didn't earn any of the medals he was wearing. Michael Patrick McManus was arrested Friday night after a federal judge signed a warrant for his arrest.

He has no SCOTUS precedents on his side, he has nothing in the Constitution to support his usurpation.

    Most Americans don’t realize we have elected a president whom we know very little about. Researchers have discovered that Obama’s autobiographical books are little more than PR stunts, as they have little to do with the actual events of his life. The fact is we know less about President Obama than perhaps any other president in American history and much of this is due to actual efforts to hide his record. This should concern all Americans. A nation-wide network of researchers has sprung up to attempt to fill in the blanks, but at every opportunity Obama’s high-priced lawyers have built...

Even though we all watched in shock, as hijacked planes flew into the twin towers, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, these folks imagined that someone in Washington DC might have blown up those buildings instead. Not that our federal government isn't capable of such things, mind you... but they are not likely to pull off such a thing without anyone...

Depending on the news cycle and what she's up to, Palin gains between 1,000 and 10,000 fans per day and hasn't spent a dime to do it. Well, I guess this disparity has finally gotten under old Mitt Romney's skin because he's decided to do something about it. What something, you ask? The same thing he always does to...

But an extensive WND investigation into events leading up to the birth of Barack Obama, who would become America's first black president 47 years later, leaves many unanswered questions about the whereabouts and activities of the woman he claims as his mother. The timeline for Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, reveals an approximately six-and-a-half month interval in which there is no documentation for her whereabouts, from Jan. 31, 1961, when she concluded...

Mr. Messina disclosed the president’s plan while talking at a conference of Western Democratic leaders here, discussing Democratic gains in the region over the past six...

    Just as the left pioneered "AstroTurf" protesters -- homeless people lured to demonstrations with the offer of a free T-shirt and a box lunch -- liberals have also specialized in producing fake "insiders" denouncing their alleged group.

    Here is video of a President Obama interview with Bob Costas where he got the name of his favorite team's ballpark wrong, calling it "Cominskey Park," instead of the correct name - "Comiskey Park." Obama claims to be a big White Sox fan, even talking about having gone to games there, while he inexplicably got the name wrong. . . . . . (Watch Video)
  • Fake White Sox Fan? Obama Calls It “Cominskey”

    Barack Obama with an embarrassing gaffe in an interview on MLB Network last night. While chatting with Bob Costas, Obama clearly calls the White Sox’s former longtime home field “Cominskey Park”. It was no slip of the tongue. (So-called Sox fan calls it “Cominskey” Park. Awkward.) Obama has long claimed loyalty to the White Sox thanks to spending a good deal of his political and professional life on the south side of Chicago.

    Twittering away to prevent fraud By Dennis Jay Jun 29, 2009, 1:07 PM EST Iranian dissidents aren’t the only twitterers seeking justice these days. The city of Chandler, Arizona on Friday sent a message to local residents via Twitter to warn about a scam artist trying to stage a pedestrian accident in a city parking lot. A city employee sent out the warning after viewing video footage of the alleged scam from a security camera. The suspect seems to clearly wait for a car to back up and hit her, and then as the car goes forward to pull into...

    Washington Post ^ | June 25, 2009 | Lois Romano
    For weeks, Michelle Obama had been telling her staff and closest confidantes that she wasn't having the impact she wanted. She is a woman of substance, with a background in law, public policy and management, who found herself relegated to role model in chief. The West Wing of the White House -- the fulcrum of power and policy -- had not fully integrated her into its agenda. She wanted more. So, earlier this month, she changed her chief of staff, and now she's changing her role.
  • Conspiracy theories sprout in D.C. (fake garden at 0bama's White House)

    Obama detractors are suggesting that the garden on the South Lawn (planted by Mrs. Obama and schoolchildren in March) is fake. The conspiracy theorists claim that, despite a lot of compost and a very rainy spring, the vegetables harvested by the first lady and those same schoolchildren last Tuesday could not have grown so big in just 90 days. These critics surmise that the White House substituted mature plants for immature ones - in the dead of night, I guess - in order to fool the American public. An actual-dirt dirty trick that would live up to the name Watercressgate....

    As was reported yesterday, Rev. Alberto Cutié -- the popular Catholic priest caught in a longtime affair -- has joined the Episcopal Church.

Alberto Cutié, said he was joining the Episcopal Church and planning to marry his girlfriend of two years, who was also becoming an Episcopalian...."With God's help," [Cutié] added, "I hope to continue priestly ministry and service in...
