    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest pointed out that members of Congress would be enjoying their August vacations by playing golf, but not necessarily with President Obama. Earnest explained that Sunday’s round of golf with a few Democratic members of Congress had “been in the works for quite some time” and wasn’t necessarily a diplomatic effort to build support for his nuclear deal with Iran. When asked if Obama would be playing more golf with members of Congress, Earnest declined to share any details of the president’s golfing schedule. “I’m confident in the next 60 days, many members of Congress...

    With all of the ridiculous new regulations, coddling, and societal mores that seem to be the norm these days, it’s a miracle those of us over 30 survived our childhoods. Here’s the problem with all of this babying: it creates a society of weenies. There won’t be more more rebels because this generation has been frightened into submission and apathy through a deliberately orchestrated culture of fear. No one will have faced adventure and lived to greatly embroider the story. Kids are brainwashed – yes, brainwashed – into believing that the mere thought of a gun means you’re a psychotic...

    WAVY, the NBC affiliate in Hampton Roads, Virginia asks “has zero tolerance gone too far?” as it reports this story: A suspended seventh grade Virginia Beach student will find out soon if he is expelled for the rest of the year for shooting an airsoft gun. Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus. The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop;...
  • Playing Politics: 9/11 Widow Describes Slightly Contentious Meeting With Obama On Fox News

    Today, President Obama visited Ground Zero and met with those affected by 9/11. Somehow, however, his visit seemed to look different to every person who witnessed it. Particularly cable news channels. MSNBC seemed thrilled as they eagerly discussed how the visit would totally show up tonight’s Republican debate. Meanwhile, Fox News was less enchanted. Witness the network’s interview with Debra Burlingame, a 9/11 widow, who was brought on to discuss Obama’s meeting with the victims’ families. That subject was broached for about two minutes

    ( Travelers on Israeli airline El-Al report that its flights now feature a satire about residents of Hevron which many have termed “anti-Semitic.” The producers of the film may face libel suits. The offending skit was aired earlier in the month on the satirical Eretz Nehederet (A Wonderful Land) show on Channel 2 TV. The popular show has run for six seasons in Israel and is similar to the American program Saturday Night Live. (The Hevron film clip can be viewed here in Hebrew.)
  • Iran Playing ‘Destabilizing Role’ in Iraq, Crocker Says

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 11, 2007 – U.S. officials are giving Iran’s present role in Iraq “a hard look,” U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan C. Crocker said during an interview on Fox News Channel last night. “Iran's role is harmful. There are no two ways about it,” said Crocker, who appeared on Brit Hume’s special report “Back from Iraq: A Briefing for America” with Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of Multinational Force Iraq. The general and the ambassador had spent the day testifying before congressional committees. “They are supporting radical militias,” Crocker said. “They are supplying the explosively formed projectiles...

"If only there had been a decent hospital, if only the authorities had cared, my babies would still be alive," she said. The Kocyigit family lost three children in six days Mrs Kocyigit, 37, spoke exclusively...

    Technology Playing Role in GOP Protests By ELLEN SIMON NEW YORK - Gary Boston and Jeff Adler are just two guys with a dream: shutting down New York City for a day. What they want is a general strike, with everyone from Broadway dancers to Madison Avenue street sweepers calling in sick Wednesday to protest the Republican National Convention, which begins on Monday. Both men are in their 30s and have full-time jobs, and neither has any organizing experience. Boston, who had never built a Web site before, put together in three days, using Microsoft FrontPage software and the...

    Good, despite themselves Article Last Updated: Thursday, August 05, 2004 - 12:54:17 PM MST By DONALD KAUL, Retired Washington columnist, Des Moines Register The Democratic National Convention got off to a rip-roaring start last week with its parade of Golden Oldies - President Jimmy, Uncrowned Prince Al and, of course, Big Bill. Taken together, their speeches constituted the best first day of a political convention in memory. The trio managed to offer a scathing critique of the Bush Administration's preemptive-war strategy, as well as his reverse Robin Hood economic policies, without getting too personal about the president himself (although Jimmy...

    HOT TOPICS  LEE RECOMMENDS THIS PHOTO 23 June 2004 - Muslim children play at beheading Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does. A video located today on Sheik Abu Hamza's website, , features four children, doing what as children the world over do: pretending. But what is completely unnerving about this video is what they are pretending. One young boy kneels in front of three other children, in the same manner of the condemned man; Three other children stand behind him in the same way that the terrorists stood over the men prior to their beheading....

    Are we preparing for war or playing politics? By Thomas L. Friedman I am worried. And you should be, too.I am not against war in Iraq, if need be, but I am against going to war without preparing the ground in America, in the region and in the world at large to deal with the blowback any U.S. invasion will produce.But I see few signs that President Bush is making those preparations. The Bush team's whole approach was best summed up by a friend of mine: ``We're at war -- let's party.'' We're at war -- let's not ask the...
