    Not many authors on a book tour manage to snag a visit with the president of the United States. But Condoleezza Rice is no ordinary book author. The former secretary of state and onetime national security adviser met one-on-one with President Obama at the White House on Friday afternoon, after a week of television appearances promoting "Extraordinary, Ordinary People," her memoir about her parents. The White House said Obama wanted to discuss a range of foreign policy issues with her.

    The South Korean Red Cross sent 5,000 tons of rice in emergency aid to North Korea in September, a humanitarian gesture that came after months of silence between the two Koreas since the warship sinking. Unification Minister Hyun In-taek, earlier this month, North Korea’s military has saved up to 1 million tons of rice for its officials and soldiers

    EXCERPTS Later, at an evening appearance at the Aspen Institute, Rice said she and Obama "covered the waterfront." "Despite the fact there are changes and tussles, there is still a foreign policy community that believes that foreign policy ought to be bipartisan," she said. "It was really great that he reached out in that way." Rice rolled her eyes at the notion that Obama is a closet Muslim, and she defended him from criticism - led by former vice president Richard B. Cheney - that Obama has weakened the country. "Nothing in this president's methods suggests this president is other...

    In an interview on NBC's "Today Show" this morning, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice admitted she doesn't miss the pressures of her former job, adding that now, when she hears breaking news, she doesn't "have to do anything about it." "It's nice to be out of the pressure-cooker, frankly," she acknowledged to "Today" host Meredith Veiera. Rice, who was on "Today" to promote her new memoir, "Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me," spoke about her childhood in Birmingham, Alabama, and defended some of the more controversial foreign policy initiatives from the Bush administration.

  • Bayer admits GMO contamination out of control

    (NaturalNews) Drug and chemical giant Bayer AG has admitted that there is no way to stop the uncontrolled spread of its genetically modified crops. "Even the best practices can't guarantee perfection," said Mark Ferguson, the company's defense lawyer in a recent trial. Two Missouri farmers sued Bayer for contaminating their crop with modified genes from an experimental strain of rice engineered to be resistant to the company's Liberty-brand herbicide. The contamination occurred in 2006, during an open field test of the new rice, which was not approved for human consumption. According to the plaintiffs' lawyer, Don Downing, genetic material from...

    N.Korean Military 'Sitting on 1 Million Tons of Rice' Despite a dire food shortage and devastating recent floods, the North Korean military reportedly is keeping more than 1 million tons of rice in storage. In a party caucus at the National Assembly on Thursday, Grand National Party floor leader Kim Moo-sung said calls for humanitarian food aid for the North are "inappropriate" at a time when the North "has as much as 1 million tons of rice in storage in preparation for war. We have to take this into consideration." The figure apparently comes from a report by the National...

    Noted Catholic scholar and Notre Dame Law School professor emeritus Charles Rice is not happy about a Labor Day e-statement issued by his niece, Kathleen Rice, the Nassau County district attorney and a candidate for New York attorney general. Sadly, Kathleen Rice is pro-abortion. When asked by Paul Likoudis, news editor of The Wanderer, for comment on the candidate's e-statement, Charles Rice responded as follows: Dear Mr. Likoudis: You asked my opinion about Kathleen Rice's e-mail statement for Labor Day. Kathleen, as you know, is my niece. She is the district attorney of Nassau County and is running for New...

    Resuming rice aid to North Korea remains a point of debate as the South’s rice surplus nears 1.4 million tons and the North falls deeper into destitution. The opposition Democratic Party proposed organizing a special parliamentary committee to prevent a domestic rice market crash by sending rice to the North, a month after the Seoul government said old rice will be used to feed livestock. “The rice surplus amounts to 1.4 million tons, more than double the standard inventory, and is expected to reach 2 million tons by October,” Jeon Hyun-hee, the DP’s floor spokesperson, said on Tuesday. “North Korea,...

    ... while continuing to build straw men and spread chaff via the MSM. The NPR site has more about Anne Rice's decision to pursue unversion (my term, not NPR's) from Christianity, specifically from the "quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group" that many of us know as the Catholic Church, which happens to have been founded by Jesus Christ, which he entrusted to his apostles and their successors, and is still standing despite the powerful Facebook salvos of the author of Interview with the Vampire: Rice says although there were "last straws," there was no one event that caused her...

"I believed for a long time that the differences, the quarrels among Christians didn't matter a lot for the individual, that you live your life and stay out of it.

    Although I haven't seen it — and I really have no desire to see it — I think it's safe to say that the play Late Nite Catechism has been at least somewhat popular among Catholics, even being advertised in the Catholic New World, the Archdiocese of Chicago's official newspaper. I wouldn't be surprised if it's advertised in other diocesan newspapers as well. But not all Catholics are pleased with this theatrical attempt at humor. Bill Donohue, president of the despised-by-dissenters Catholic League, has stated: "Late Nite Catechism continues the artistic assault on Roman Catholicism by ridiculing virtually every aspect...

    Novelist Anne Rice remains committed to Christ. But she is quitting Christianity. The “Interview With The Vampire” author, who in recent years has spoken publicly about her faith and written a series of novels tracing the life of Jesus, wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday that she was finished with organized Christianity. For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian. I'm out. I remain committed to Christ as always but not to being "Christian" or to being part of Christianity. It's simply impossible for me to "belong" to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious,...

    WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS KEITH OLBERMANN?July 28, 2010 While engaging in astonishing viciousness, vulgarity and violence toward Republicans, liberals accuse cheerful, law-abiding Tea Party activists of being violent racists. Responding to these vile charges, conservative television pundits think it's a great comeback to say: "There is the fringe on both sides." Both sides? Really? How about: "That's a complete lie"? Did that occur to you simpering morons as a possible reply to the slanderous claim that conservatives are fiery racists? The most notorious accusations of "racism" at anti-Obama rallies so far has consisted of the allegation that...

    Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the UN and member of Barack Obama's cabinet, opened the door for the possibility of an international investigation into the U.S. military on Fox News Sunday yesterday. Here's the relevant part of the exchange: Chris Wallace: And a simple question: Would the U.S. accept foreign participation if this country were investigating actions by the U.S. military? Susan Rice: I think it depends on the circumstances, Chris. Naturally, this question came up during an exchange about the pro-Hamas flotillas that Israel prevented from reaching its shores. But it's an extraordinarily short-sighted statement for Rice to make.

    Replacing White Rice With Brown Rice Reduces Risk of Type 2 Diabetes, Study FindsJune 14, 2010 -- Replacing white rice in your diet with brown rice may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study. The finding is important because the consumption of white rice in the United States has increased dramatically in the past few decades, and about 18 million Americans have type 2 diabetes. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health say eating two or more servings of brown rice weekly seems to be associated with a lower risk of developing type...
