  • Gowdy scorches Comey for 'water-downed' Hillary probe, 'appointing himself' judge and jury

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy scorched James Comey in a blistering opening statement at a high-profile congressional hearing on Tuesday, declaring “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.” Gowdy kicked off the hearing featuring testimony from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his review of the Hillary Clinton email case. The top DOJ watchdog is on Capitol Hill for the second day in a row to discuss the explosive report. But Gowdy launched into Tuesday's session -- a joint hearing held by the House oversight and judiciary panels -- with a fiery condemnation of the...
  • Make the Best Out of the Year of Rooster

    By now, many people in the West have long recovered from their New Year's Eve hangovers. But for many people in East Asia, especially in China, the real new year just arrived and the most significant new year celebrations just started.  Of course, I'm referring to the Chinese New Year. The date of Chinese New Year is determined by a traditional Chinese lunar calendar, which is based on the lunar cycles, aka the phases of the moon.  Like many things in China, the lunar calendar has been around for a long time (I'm talking about thousands of years). Traditional Chinese...

    It was difficult to miss Ian Jacobson at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Known as Rooster, he was 33, with an ample beard, earrings and a towering orange-and-aqua spiked Mohawk haircut. But he also sported a pinstriped suit, French cuffs and a natty contrast collar. Mr. Jacobson’s sartorial contradictions matched those of his politics: He is among the young Republicans who are pro-free market on fiscal issues and libertarian on social ones. While his views represent a potential growth wing for a party that is losing among other demographic groups, they also show an emerging tension with the older social...
  • With Romney Closing In, Santorum Airs His Grievances

    CHILLICOTHE, Ohio -- Rick Santorum is sounding a bit like Newt Gingrich did when he was on the ropes in Florida and Mitt Romney was poised to overtake him in polling there. There was a tone of grievance in his voice that underscored the words he chose on the stump here Friday. "I know sometimes I can get wound up," Santorum told a group of supporters at the Chillicothe High School gymnasium. But, he said, "the words out of my mouth are my own. They're not written by some poll-tested speechwriter."

    The American Spectator ^ | February 29. 2012 | Andrew Cline
    Rick Santorum is stretching his criticism of President Obama's advocacy of universal college attendance into a broader attack on college itself. Santorum has three college degrees, which provides a good indication of how seriously one should take his assault on what he is labeling as Obama's elitism. As with so many of Santorum's statements, this criticism contains a grain of perception smothered in reactionary dogma. [BIG SNIP] In a nation in which almost everyone aspires to upward mobility, how is this a winning political argument? Sure, colleges are hothouses of liberalism. They have been for generations. And yet Americans of...

    There’s a tiny priest living in Rick Santorum’s trim, toned body, struggling to get out. The rogue priest escaped Sunday and said foolish things. The candidate most admired for plain speech made it plain and clear that he doesn’t believe in the wall between church and state and doesn’t think much of John F. Kennedy for saying he did. “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute,” he told ABC News. “The idea that church can have no influence or involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives...

    Leading in the national polls and within striking distance of scoring big victories in Michigan and Arizona next Tuesday, Rick Santorum is portraying himself as the little 'guy from a steel town' who will stop Barack Obama from accumulating regal powers. 'Back in 2008, the American public at a time of crisis went for a rock star that they believed could solve their problems, someone that they believed in to make a difference in their lives,' he said at the Maricopa County Lincoln Day lunch in Phoenix, Arizona. 'This election, Americans are going to go back to what we've done...

    "I'm not a manager. I'm not a visionary," he told the crowd in an apparent reference to his GOP rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. "I'm a guy from a steel town who grew up understanding what made this country great and for the years that I've been involved in public life, put my heart and my effort on the line to make this country the kind of country that we all want to hand on to our children and grandchildren." Santorum also touched on the fight over who's the real "Washington insider," saying the only reason Romney wasn't a...

    A man who alleges he was attacked by a rooster at a southwest suburban animal center has filed a lawsuit seeking more than $50,000 for injuries he says were caused when the territorial chicken repeatedly pecked his right leg. Mark Lovett says he was putting up a fence at the Big Run Wolf Ranch in Lockport two years ago when the fearless fowl struck, causing him "great pain and anguish, both in mind and body," according to the lawsuit filed in Will County Circuit Court this week.

    PETOSKEY, Mich.- A northern Michigan woman has lost a long legal battle to keep her disabled pet rooster in a suburban neighborhood. Beaker, who suffered permanent injury when he was dropped at the age of 3 days by students at a Montessori kindergarten, will have to move to the Second Chance Animal Ranch in Petoskey, Mich., The Detroit News reported Saturday. But Sharon Peters worries about her pet's future, since he can barely see, has a club foot, and is frightened of other chickens but is comfortable with her and her husband. "We're his flock, basically," she told the News....
  • McDonald's Roosteraunt

    In an era of McNuggets and McChicken sandwiches, this bird brings new meaning to the term “fast food.” (A brown hen has taken up residence outside a McDonald’s in Temecula and, try as they might, neither the employees nor the customers can catch her.) That’s like a dog hanging out in front of a Chinese restaurant in Peking. Sure everything seems OK, until they catch you. Next thing you know, you’re the number 12, extra spicy, on the menu. (It has been almost four months...

    Ferghana Valley: A rooster speaking \  Ferghana.Ru news agency, Firdavsy, a Ferghana.Ru correspondent, 15.03.2006 Have you ever heard roosters? Sure you have. Who hasn't? A certain rooster in the Kyrgyz town of Osh, however, is something else. Its crow has already saved it from death. Owner Ibragim Ismatullayev, his neighbors from Tadjikskaya Street in the center of Osh, and local journalists maintain that the rooster is calling Allah. This correspondent made a trip to Osh to see the wondrous rooster with his own eyes. Recalling numerous con-artists encountered in my career, I was fairly skeptical suspecting bluff or a money-extorting...

    Judge Dismisses 'Fowl' Noise Petition Tue Mar 15, 5:46 PM ET Strange News - AP FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Four roosters have something new to crow about. A Williamson County judge dismissed a civil petition by Richard Milardo that sought to force his neighbors to get rid of their roosters because they disturbed his peace by crowing throughout the day. "I know how annoying things can be to people, but I really don't believe there is anything I can do," General Sessions Court Judge Al Nations said at a hearing on Monday. The neighbors, Jon Jackson and Kimberly Roberts, said they...
