    Breaking– The Chris McDaniel campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots were cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted.This comes after 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes helped push Thad Cochran to victory over Chris McDaniel (by 6,880 votes) in the June 24 runoff.The McDaniel campaign has already found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week.This is illegal and their votes should not be counted.Update—–Lindsay Krout, a volunteer working in Mississippi, was barred from reviewing...

    A nice young man knocked on my door on Saturday. He identified himself as being associated with the Democratic Party, and he was going door to door checking current residents against registered voter name a addresses he had on a list. As I said, he was very pleasant and courteous, but it got me to thinking...are the dems only cleaning up Republican inconsistancies while leaving ghost Democrats on the rolls? Will they use these current numbers to help figure how many votes need to be ginned up to assure a victory? Doesn't much matter where I live (SoCal), as the...

    Dontcha’ know, Sarah Palin is coming to town this weekend, and you may see her cruising the streets of D.C. on the back of a hog. The former Alaska governor, who is the subject of a lot of overheated speculation about whether she will run for president in 2012, has accepted an invitation to participate in the annual Rolling Thunder memorial ride this Sunday, an official says. “As far as I know, she is trying to rent a motorcycle, so she can ride with her husband,” said Nancy Regg, a spokeswoman for Rolling Thunder. Gregg says the tentative plan is...

    The White House disclosed the other day that the fiscal 2009 budget deficit clocked in at $1.4 trillion, amid the usual promises to do something about it. Yet even as budget director Peter Orszag was speaking, House Democrats were moving on a dozen spending bills for fiscal 2010 that total 12.1% in more domestic discretionary increases. Yes, 12.1%. Remember, inflation is running close to zero, or 0.8%. The good news, if we can call it that, is that Senate Democrats only want to increase nondefense appropriations by 8% for 2010. Because these funding increases become part of the permanent baseline...

    More than 30,000 Florida felons who by law should have been stripped of their right to vote remain registered to cast ballots in this presidential battleground state, a Sun Sentinel investigation has found. Many are faithful voters, with at least 4,900 turning out in past elections. Another 5,600 are not likely to vote Nov. 4 — they're still in prison. Of the felons who registered with a party, Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one. Florida's elections chief, Secretary of State Kurt Browning, acknowledged his staff has failed to remove thousands of ineligible felons because of a shortage of...

    CAIRO (Reuters) - A massive statue of one of Egypt's greatest pharaohs, Ramses II, rolled through the streets of Cairo to a new home near the Pyramids on Friday to escape the corrosive pollution of its former spot in a crowded transit hub. Tens of thousands of people lined the streets to bid farewell to the 3,200-year-old red granite statue, which weighs 83 tons and was wrapped in plastic and thick padding for the painstakingly slow 35 km (21 mile) journey, which took 10 hours. Only the face was visible. "We are going to miss you. Cairo will never be...

    CARACAS, Venezuela - Opponents of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez are demanding further investigation of what they call gross irregularities in the voter registry, pointing to a western state where 1,921 people by the name of Gonzalez are listed with an identical birthday. The electoral council, which is independent but faces accusations that it is pro-government, insists the lists are sound, and plans to release an external audit Tuesday as it prepares for December presidential elections. The case of the many Gonzalezes in Zulia state was reported by Roberto Ansuini, an opposition-aligned researcher and former member of the National Electoral Council...

Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson, whose office is responsible voter registration, said she’d be glad to provide the list to anyone who asked, but she said she was offended by the implication that she might play politics with the voter rolls....

    Bush rolls out big gun to keep heartland happy By Alec Russell in Sioux Falls (Filed: 29/03/2004) Outside America, Vice-President Dick Cheney is widely seen as a shadowy front man for corporate interests and an arch, even sinister, hawk. This view was reinforced last week when he led a full-frontal assault on Richard Clarke, President George W Bush's former counter-terrorism adviser, who had challenged the administration's record against al-Qa'eda. Dick Cheney is being used by Bush to batter opponents With controversies brewing over Mr Cheney's old company, Halliburton, which the Pentagon has accused of overcharging for supplies in Iraq, Democrats...

    ROLLS-ROYCE, the aeroengine manufacturer, is on course to win a £3 billion contract to refit the US fleet of B52 bombers. The company confirmed yesterday that it has put forward two plans for updating the engines of the aircraft after being approached by Boeing and the US Air Force.

The US Air Force has 85 in its active fleet and nine in reserve, each with eight engines. Analysts said the contract could be...

    DENVER (AP) -- A government-access television station wasn't allowed to tape a City Council discussion of the city's budget crisis Wednesday because a councilwoman said she didn't want the group to be shown eating the cinnamon rolls she brought to the meeting. Council President Elbra Wedgeworth confirmed that Councilwoman Jeanne Faatz requested on Saturday that Channel 8 not broadcast the meeting. "It's not a big deal because the meetings still go on; they're still public," Wedgeworth said. "We rarely do something like this. It was a one-time request."
