  • Obama Provokes the American People

    January 16, 2013 BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: President Obama today is taking action that a majority of Americans disagree with. He's going down a road a majority of people disagree with. He knows it. The question is, why? Why is Barack Obama literally trying to push people to snap? Why is he doing this? It's as though in some way he's attacking the very sanity of people in this country. Why is he doing this? Why is he deliberately making people so upset? What is driving him? Anybody got any ideas? I've been watching the children-as-human-shields show that is now going...

    What does a nuclear madman have to do to get America's attention? On Memorial Day, the North Koreans detonated "an underground atomic device many times more powerful than the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki," as my old colleagues at The Irish Times put it. You'd think that'd rate something higher than "World News In Brief," see foot of page 37. But instead Washington was consumed by the Supreme Court nomination of Sonia Sotomayor, who apparently has a "compelling personal story." Doesn't Kim Jong-il have a compelling personal story? Like Sonia, he grew up in a poor neighborhood (North Korea),...

    Diabetes from a Plastic? Estrogen mimic provokes insulin resistance Ben Harder Exposure to small amounts of an ingredient in polycarbonate plastic may increase a person's risk of diabetes, according to a new study in mice. The synthetic chemical called bisphenol-A is used to make dental sealants, sturdy microwavable plastics, linings for metal food-and-beverage containers, baby bottles, and numerous other products. When consumed, the chemical can mimic the effects of estrogen. Previous tests had found that bisphenol-A can leach into food and water and that it's widely prevalent in human blood. The newfound contribution of the chemical to insulin resistance, a...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - The anti-war message a suburban couple hung below the rafters of their home was meant to be provocative: It's a soldier's uniform, complete with helmet and gloves, and the sign "Bush Lied. I Died," painted in black and white. Since Stephen and Virginia Pearcy put up the display, it has been vandalized twice and put up again. Police are investigating the vandalism reports as well as a claim by a military mother that the display should be investigated as a hate crime. "It's a message of dissent over the war in Iraq," Stephen Pearcy said. "The soldiers...

    BEIRUT, Lebanon - Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" is provoking strong Arab reaction. Kuwait banned it, Jordan tried to cut it, Syria has not decided, and Saudi commentators are denouncing it. Many Arab moviegoers say with a twinge of envy that they wish the region, where free speech is for the most part restricted, had its own Moore. Some say it reinforces their bad image of the United States and shows Americans what their own media does not. A few believe Moore is unfair to President Bush (news - web sites) and British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites)....

    <p>Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and other Democratic leaders are cruising toward November by exploiting public antipathy toward so-called corporate miscreants, such as the guys at Enron, WorldCom and now home-decorating diva Martha Stewart.</p> <p>I'm no defender of corporate wrongdoing, although I still can't quite figure out what Stewart did that warrants time in jail. Lying to investigators about a non-crime apparently is all it takes to get one locked up these days. Investigators frequently lie to those they are interrogating, and they are not punished for that.</p>
